After India, the US now definitely wants to ban Chinese social media applications, including TikTok


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. is “certainly looking into” banning Chinese social media applications, including TikTok. “I don’t want to get out in front of the President (Donald Trump), but it’s something we’re looking at,” Mike Pompeo said in an interview.

India has banned 59 Chinese-linked apps for engaging in activities ‘prejudicial to India’s sovereignty and independence, protection of India, state security and public order.’ The ban came in the wake of the ongoing stand-off with Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh. All 59 apps have now been removed from the App stores of Apple Inc and Google LLC for the Indian Market.

Republican Congressman Rick Crawford tweeted “TikTok must go, and yesterday it should have gone away.” Robert O’Brien, US National Security Advisor, also alleged that the Chinese Government was using TikTok for its own purposes. Meanwhile, a media report in Beijing said China’s tech giant unicorn ByteDance Ltd. anticipated a loss of more than $6 billion after India banned three of its apps like TikTok. Most likely the $6 billion amount is more than the combined losses for all the other India-banned Chinese apps, China’s had reported.
