Trump On TikTok: ‘We’re Banning Them From The United States’

President Donald Trump said Friday night that he is going to ban the Chinese video streaming app TikTok through emergency economic powers or through an executive order, CNN reported.

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters while aboard Air Force One, the report noted. “I have that authority,” he added.

The president’s remarks came after a Bloomberg report Friday indicated that Trump will order TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, to divest from the popular social media app.
