President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump campaign cancels ad buys to review messaging strategy: report Nunes declines to answer if he received information from Ukraine lawmaker meant to damage Biden Poll: Plurality of ‘Gen Z’ voters say they see more political ads from Trump than Biden MORE on Friday said he plans to ban the social media platform TikTok from operating in the United States.

“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One.

Trump’s announcement came hours after reports that Microsoft was in talks to purchase popular TikTok from Beijing-based company ByteDance.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made similar comments earlier this month, announcing that the Trump administration was considering banning Chinese apps, including TikTok, due to national security concerns.

The Treasury Department’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) opened an investigation into ByteDance last year, while the House approved legislation last week banning the use of TikTok on federal devices.

Senators have also asked the Justice Department to open an investigation into TikTok, and have separately raised concerns the app could be used by the CCP to interfere in U.

The company hired former Disney executive Kevin Mayer to serve as CEO earlier this year and relocated American data storage to the United States.
