Trump says he will ban TikTok from US

  • TikTok could be ordered divested from its Chinese parent firm under an order reportedly being prepared by US President Donald TrumpMore

In this case, USA lawmakers don't get the head on the platter they seemed to have originally hoped for; Trump and members of his administration have repeatedly floated the idea of banning the app altogether, and Trump, again, yesterday told reporters that "We are looking at TikTok".

The President said he will use emergency economic power or executive order to enforce the banishing of the app from U.S. users.

The app is still now in use in the United States, with Trump potentially confirming the ban later on today. "There a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening", Trump told reporters at the White House. By thus increasing pressure on the Chinese company ByteDance, which owns TikTok, the United States hopes to force it to sell the popular application.

For the U.S. government, the platform's Chinese ownership has raised concerns about the censorship of videos, including those critical of the Chinese government or supportive of causes such as democracy in Hong Kong.

The ad market research company eMarketer has estimated LinkedIn's ad revenue at about $2 billion annually in the United States alone.

El-Sisi has also congratulated Saudi Arabia for organising the Islamic hajj "precisely and successfully" amid the coronavirus pandemic , his spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement on Friday.

TikTok allows users to create short videos - often with some basic effects and music - which have become increasingly popular. Microsoft and TikTok declined to comment to NBC News about the negotiations. ByteDance originally bought US-based Inc in 2017 and merged it with TikTok, creating a social-media hit in the United States - the first Chinese app to make such inroads.

Social media services, including Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc's YouTube, have seen their sales growth continue during the pandemic as users spend more time entertaining themselves online - particularly with video - and advertisers follow them there. "TikTok's biggest investors come from the US".

TikTok's fun, goofy videos and ease of use has made it immensely popular, and USA tech giants like Facebook and Snapchat see it as a potential threat.

Chinese law can compel any domestic company to hand over data it has collected on users. TikTok claims it does not censor videos based on content about China, and will not provide user data to the Chinese government even if asked.

These national-security worries parallel a broader USA security crackdown on Chinese companies, including telecom providers Huawei and ZTE. The tech giant is in talks with TikTok's parent company ByteDance.
