TikTok is at risk of becoming banned in the United States of America under the Trump administration, which put forward a motion that presents the platform as a national security threat.
TikTok’s future in the United States of America remains uncertain, as threats of having it completely banned from all app stores are continuing to circulate.
In October 2020, the Trump administration signed a ban on TikTok and WeChat in the country, which will reportedly be put in motion on Thursday, 12 November 2020.
Despite President Donald Trump’s recent loss to Joe Biden, the motion was reportedly agreed to by Biden, who also felt as though the social media platforms could pose a threat to national security.
Chinese applications have been at risk in the American market due to the ongoing trade war between the two countries.
The threat to TikTok was reportedly instigated by Trump, who demanded that it be sold to an American company by Saturday, 14 November 2020, or be completely banned.
With the dates approaching, American citizens are forced to wait and see what will happen in the coming days regarding TikTok, which has created a wave of new content creators and entrepreneurs.
