The US is reportedly looking at banning Tik-Tok and other Chinese social media apps.⁣

According to CNN, The United States is "looking at" banning Chinese social media apps, including TikTok, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday.⁣

Pompeo suggested the possible move during an interview with Fox News' Laura Ingraham, adding that "we're taking this very seriously."⁣

Pompeo was asked by Ingraham whether the United States should be considering a ban on Chinese social media apps, "especially TikTok."⁣

"With respect to Chinese apps on people's cell phones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right too, Laura," he said. "I don't want to get out in front of the President [Donald Trump], but it's something we're looking at."⁣

Washington's top diplomat added that people should only download the app "if you want your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party." Via CNN
