Why does Trump want to ban China's TikTok app in the US? | DW News

US President Donald Trump said he's considering banning China's popular video app TikTok from the country. Reports indicate he's also considering the option of forcing the app's owner, Chinese firm ByteDance, to sell it. Microsoft is reportedly in talks to acquire TikTok's US operations. US officials say TikTok could pose a national security threat, amid concerns that China could access the data it collects. Are there other reasons Trump may want to get rid of TikTok? TikTok's general manager for its US market, Vanessa Pappas, said the company "not planning on going anywhere."
