- In a recent announcement, Donald Trump openly declared that he is prohibiting the well-known Chinese video-sharing app, TikTok. In fact, the decision was followed by India’s decision in terminating the app.
What is the aftermath of this kind of ban on TikTok?
According to some validities, Donald’s decision is not swooped by constraints inflicted by India. The latter is putting such restrictions due to the security motives which the app violates.
Further, this could be done possibly by coming Saturday of the week. In turn, China also played its cards by rendering an attempt on alleviating some of the distinguished US entities.
Interestingly, this list of the above-spoken off entities also includes prominent Microsoft, which was explained to have given rise to an agreement for a deal in the liturgies.
What is Donald Trump’s say on banning TikTok?
Additionally, Trump has also stated that being a non-M&A (mergers and acquisitions), he won’t allow such an app to work in the country. Apart from this, he also claimed that he would ban this app with all his might.
He even contended that he will prohibit this app even if he has to use his fiasco economic leverages or executive powers. Further, Donald also said that this would be executed as timely as Saturday.
Trump was angered by some of the videos making mockery and pranking him on TikTok. In fact, this ban was also made a fun factor on TikTok. So, there is no reason behind Trump not banning TikTok.
What do US officials have to say about this ban by Trump?
Presently, the US officials are of the view that such a band was previously taken into consideration but wasn’t executed due to some issues.
However, India’s ban was taken as a card by these officials in urging Trump to go down the same route as India. In addition, along with TikTok, Trump was asked to ban some other Chinese apps too.
If we take the case of ByteDance, being a Chinese app, it will definitely come under the Chinese Security laws. Under this view, China can access our private data anytime it prefers to.
