If the China does not change ownership within 45 days, Donald Trump’s government will ban social media platforms TikTok and WeChat in the United States.

President Donald Trump has issued an executive order in this regard.

This information has been mentioned in the report of the US news agency CNN on the last Friday Night.

The executive order read, “after 45 days; no person or entity will be able to transact with ByteDance Limited in the United States”.

Last Monday, President Donald Trump demanded that TikTok be banned in the United States after September 15 unless it is sold to a US company.

National security concerns have been cited as the reason for the ban.

Trump administration has said, “In addition to the personal information of US citizens, many of the country’s confidential information is being passed directly into the hands of the Chinese Communist Party through the app. There are also cases of blackmail and corporate espionage using this information”.
