In another escalation of the White House’s vendetta against popular video sharing app TikTok, President Donald Trump has signed an executive order against its parent company ByteDance.

S.

government has been making a lot of noise over the past few weeks about TikTok potentially sharing user data with the Chinese government, claiming that the app is a threat to national security.

Of course, both and already provide foreign governments with user data, but the fact that ByteDance is a Chinese company has been a real sticking point for Trump.

The president also signed an executive order against WeChat and its parent company, Chinese media conglomerate Tencent, which owns League of Legends developer Riot Games and has a significant stake in Fortnite developer Epic Games.

The executive order also claims TikTok censors content the Chinese government considers ‘politically sensitive’ and can be used to spread disinformation, ‘such as when TikTok videos spread debunked conspiracy theories about the origins of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

TikTok also withdrew from Hong Kong in July in response to the controversial new national security laws which could have required it to censor content or supply the government with user data.
