Much on the lines of what the Government in India did, the US President Donald Trump has said that he would be banning the Chinese platform ‘TikTok’ in the United States of America. The president was quoted by the international media as speaking to a pool of reporters on board the Air Force One.
He said, “As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States.” The move comes after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US was looking into a ban in early July.
Trump also said that the ban could come as early as Saturday. The Indian government has already banned the popular app from India after its tensions heightened with neighbouring China.
This was due to a skirmish between China and India in the Ladakh region in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed and China suffered massive casualties as well.
