Trump to ban TikTok in US

The United States President Donald Trump revealed that he will prohibit the video application TikTok from operating in the country over security concerns.

Talking to the reporters on Air Force One, Trump said: "As far as TikTok is concerned, we're banning them from the United States," and asserted that he could bar the Chinese-owned app from operating in the US as soon as Saturday.

The statement came hours after reports of Trump planning to order Beijing-based firm ByteDance to sell its US TikTok branch over concerns of the company's alleged ties with the Chinese Communist Party.
