The U.S. is considering banning Chinese social media apps including TikTok, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday during an interview on Fox News.
The Trump administration is “looking at” such a move over concerns TikTok is potentially being used by Beijing as a means to surveil people, Pompeo told Fox host Laura Ingraham.
