President Donald Trump said he is considering banning the TikTok app as a way to punish China over the coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s something we’re looking at,” Trump said during a TV interview on Tuesday when asked about a possible ban, according to Bloomberg News.
“It’s a big business. Look, what happened with China with this virus, what they’ve done to this country and to the entire world is disgraceful.”
Earlier, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo recommended Americans to not download TikTok unless they want to see their information fall “in the hands of Chinese Communist Party.”
