From NBC News: President Donald Trump said on Friday night that he would ban the popular video sharing app TikTok.
“As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said aboard Air Force One as he returned to Washington after a fundraising trip to Florida.
Trump described the action as "severance" and said he could sign an order as soon as Saturday. “Well, I have that authority," he said.
"I can do it with an executive order or that,” Trump said, referring to emergency economic powers.
A spokesperson for TikTok said in a statement that the app is a job creator committed to the privacy of its 100 million users in the United States.
