    (CNN Business)President Donald Trump said Friday night that he will ban the popular short-form video app TikTok from operating in the United States, rejecting a potential deal for Microsoft to buy the app from its Chinese-owned parent company.

    "As far as TikTok is concerned, we're banning them from the United States," Trump said to reporters while aboard Air Force One.

    Trump said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order. It was not immediately clear what such an order would look like.

    Facebook is a tool that allow CIA to know someone more than this person's mother. China ban Facebook.

    Naturally US will be suspicious of Tik Tok.

    This is actually not so bad. Better to be banned than sold to Microsoft tbh. Let's see what happens to the millions of TikTokers in the US.

    US would like to takeover Tik Tok. Preferably Tik Tok should do as per Facebook and Google, exit and dont sell anything to US.

    Excellent, other countries can ban any US sites without any proof, and US cannot complain about it.

    China should ban that dumb app too. It's turning people into brainless zombies.

    They can earn a lot of money, good for marketing targeted into some age group people, particularly young people.

    Agree. I was worried tit tok is forced to be sold to American company. Banned is better news than sold.
