Washington(US): In a view to protect American people's privacy and safety, President Donald Trump on Friday decided to ban Tik Tok from Saturday.
"As far as Tik Tok is concerned we are banning them from the United States. Well, I have that authority. I can do it with an executive order or that," Trump told the reporters while flying on Air Force One.
TikTok, owned by Beijing-based startup ByteDance, was repeatedly being criticised by the US politicians of being a threat to national security because of its ties to China.
In June, India had banned 59 Chinese mobile applications including TikTok, WeChat, and Helo with a view of the threat to the nation's sovereignty and security.
