BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Time may be up for Tik-Tok. That is because Friday night President Donald Trump said he will ban the controversial video sharing app as early as Saturday.
The president has spoken against Tik-Tok in the past, citing security concerns because it is owned by a Chinese company.
The committee on foreign investment in the United States has already ordered Tik-Tok's parent company to sell the app. Microsoft is reportedly a potential buyer.
Trump says that won't happen. He plans to either use emergency economic powers, or issue an executive order to ban the app.
Technology experts disagree on the potential dangers of Tik-Tok. Many believe the Chinese government could pull data on U.S users from the app. Others think Trump is using it as a pawn to appear tough on China.
