The President of the United States, Donald Trump, confirmed this Friday that his government is considering the possibility of banning the use of the TikTok mobile phone application after an investigation into the “app” has been launched for national security reasons.
“We’re analyzing Tiktok. We could ban TikTok, we could do other things. There are some options, but a lot of things happen,” said the president.
So he explained that “what will happen will be seen” and added that “many alternatives regarding TikTok are being analyzed” without giving more details about it.
Trump’s words came a day after the Chinese government accused Washington of “threatening Chinese companies without evidence,” “violating the principles of the World Trade Organization (WTO).”
