Donald Trump To Ban TikTok From The US Today – See Why

Donald Trump over some days has has disclosed that he has plans of placing a ban on TikTok app in the United States of America through an executive authority today and this is what he has to say in regards to that; “As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States”.

Donald Trump disclosed that he is going to sign something today August 1 and could be used as emergency economic powers or an executive order and this is what he had to say about that; “Well, i have that authority”.

This is what TikTok’s spokeperson told ABC News regarding Donald Trumps threats; “These are the facts: 100 million Americans come to TikTok for entertainment and connection, especially during the pandemic.

He further stated; “We’ve hired nearly 1,000 people to our US team this year alone, and are proud to be hiring another 10,000 employees into great jobs cross the US. Our $1 billion creator fund supports US creators who are building livelihoods from our platform”.
