Trump to Ban TikTok Operating in US

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – US President Donald Trump said he was planning to ban TikTok as soon as Saturday local time, and announced he would not support any American company interested in acquiring the Chinese short video app. “As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters on Friday on Air Force One, adding he will “sign the document tomorrow.” ByteDance did not immediately respond to CGTN’s request for comment.
