US President Donald Trump is going to ban the popular social media app TikTok from the Chinese company ByteDance in the United States. He announced this to journalists on board the presidential aircraft Air Force One on Friday.

The Bloomberg financial news agency had previously reported on the basis of insiders that Trump would be working on an order, forcing ByteDance to sell TikTok. The technology company Microsoft is said to have already started conversations to get control of TikTok’s American activities.

TikTok, which allows users to post short videos, is very popular with teenagers. But the United States sees this as a danger to national security, because ByteDance can thus gather a lot of information about American citizens. According to the Americans, that information may be passed on to the Chinese government. TikTok has always denied that user data is passed on to Beijing. Due to a political conflict, India has also banned the app in the country.
