TikTok may be banned anytime soon in the United States along with other Chinese Social Media Apps according to the recent statement by Pompeo.
The United States is considering banning the popular video sharing app “TikTok” along with a number of Chinese social media apps, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday.
During an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Pompeo suggested the possibility of this particular decision.
Ingraham asked Pompeo as to whether the United States should be considering a ban on the popular video sharing platform, “TikTok”, along with other Chinese social media apps.
Tiktok went viral in the United States and other western countries, notably becoming the first Chinese social media app to gain significant amount of attention with users outside of China. The app was downloaded 315 million times in the first three months of this year.
Last week, the Indian government said it would ban TikTok along with other Chinese apps with the possible “threat to sovereignty and integrity.” as Tensions between India and China have been escalating after a clash that killed 22 Indian soldiers along the Himalayan border.
