DONALD TRUMP IS CONSIDERING BANNING TIK-TOK AMID FEAR THAT IT CAN BE USED BY CHINA TO SPY ON AMERICANS.
President Donald Trump has said that the U.S. is considering banning Chinese social media app TikTok amid fears that it could be used by China to spy on Americans. You know how China can be.
US officials have raised concerns about the Chinese government stealing private and personal data via Americans’ cell phones via such smartphone applications. So who knows if this tik-tok is not part.
Speaking to reporters in the South Lawn before departing the White House for a day trip to Texas, Trump said: ‘We’re looking at TikTok, we’re thinking about making a decision.’
Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin also said the app is under review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. He also informed reporters he would have a recommendation for the president this week on how to handle the Chinese-based app.
In a memo on Monday, Biden’s general counsel, Dana Remus, ordered staff members to delete TikTok from both their personal and work phones, and to ‘refrain from downloading and using TikTok,’ according to Bloomberg.
Do you think this app could also be a spy to Nigerians? How? And why?
