Pompeo said last night that the US is looking into a ban on TikTok, the social media video app that millennials are crazy about, along with other Chinese apps due to heavy security concerns.
TIMES OF ISRAEL – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday that Washington was considering banning Chinese mobile apps such as TikTok, after India blocked the popular platform and Australia said it was weighing a similar move.
Asked during an interview with Fox News about the Chinese apps, Pompeo said: “We are taking this very seriously and we are certainly looking at it.
“We have worked on this very issue for a long time, whether it’s the problem of having Huawei technology in your infrastructure — we’ve gone all over the world and we are making real progress getting that out,” he added. “We had declared ZTE a danger to American national security.”
“With respect to Chinese apps on people’s cellphones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right too,” Pompeo said, but added that he didn’t want to go into detail to avoid “getting ahead” of US President Donald Trump.
“But it is something we are looking at,” he continued.
He warned the public to be careful while using TikTok, cautioning that their information could end up “in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.”
Times of Israel points out that TikTok has denied sharing user data with the CCP. But of course they would say that, just like China lied about the coronavirus and the atrocities they committed trying to purge it from their land.
If the US does ban TikTok, liberals will be hardest hit. We reported last night that some TikTok liberal users are trying to use the platform to sabotage Trump’s New Hampshire rally this weekend.
The only thing I will miss if TikTok gets banned is my favorite new TikTok user, the beautiful @elilandia_. She’s Venezuelan and loves to speak out against BLM and commies.
