  • Ad Barret says:

    I couldn’t care less about shutting down tiktok but reality is Trump wants to do it because their users sabotaged his rally in Tulsa and now he’s trying to avoid that happening again. He’s so desperate that it’s clear why he wants to do all this things like delaying the election.

    • Your Local Christian says:

      Not because he doesn’t want the Chinese spying on the US? Yes, yes definitely…

    Ok but Tik Tok needs to be banned, its a hunting ground and its very toxic. If you think being on tik tok your whole life and make a living then you need to get your head outta the clouds. Yes you can, but, Tik Tok shouldnt be your life, its a app. Chile

  • Dorothy Lucero says:

    People are not gonna miss it — parents should support getting rid of it!

  • Waya525 says:

    It’s not security that is pushing Trump’s Ban Switch. It’s the fact that TikTok took his butt down in Tulsa, with users ordering literally hundreds of thousands of online tickets to Trump’s Tulsa event. And we all know how that went down. 1 million expected, 6200 showed. The overflow stage was removed while Trump was making his first speech. TikTok users are already letting their anger over someone trying to stifle their financial and creative freedom loud and clear. I’m not crazy about Chinese Government involvement, but TikTok sure embarassed the crap out of Donny in June.
