TikTok Responds to Trump's Threat to Ban It from the U.S.

TikTok has released a message to its users amid the news that President Trump wants to use an executive order to ban the social media app from the United States.

The app is currently owned by a Chinese company and Trump has seemingly shown that he doesn’t support the news that Microsoft might acquire the app. News of the ban quickly made headlines and TikTok creators became worried that they might lose their platform.

TikTok’s U.S. General Manager, Vanessa Pappas, just posted a video in which she says the app isn’t planning on “going anywhere.”

“I want to say thank you to the millions of Americans who use TikTok every day, bringing their creativity and joy into our daily lives,” she said in the below video. “We’ve heard your outpouring of support and we want to say thank you. We’re not planning on going anywhere. TikTok is a home for creators and artists to express themselves, their ideas, and connect with people across different backgrounds and we are so proud of the various communities that call TikTok their home.”

“I’m also proud of our 1,500 U.S. employees who work on this app every day and the additional 10,000 jobs that we’re bringing into this country over the next three years,” Vanessa continued. “I’m thrilled about our U.S. Creator Fund where we just announced our $1 billion fund to support our creators and when it comes to safety and security, we’re building the safest app because we know it’s the right thing to do. So, we appreciate the support. We’re here for the long run, continue to share your voice here, and let’s stand for TikTok.”

President Donald Trump Threatens To Use Emergency Powers to Ban TikTok From US Citizens

President Donald Trump is serious about his threat to ban social media platform TikTok from U.S. operations.

On Friday (July 31), the president stated that he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to ban the Chinese-owned company from the country as soon as Saturday, USA Today reports.

The government has been investigating the app as a potential national security risk and Trump has ordered ByteDance, the app’s parent company, to get out of its Chinese ownership.

Members of the U.S. Navy were also ordered to delete the app from government devices, and other government officials are banned from using the app on their devices as well.

The concert on national security is through the app’s ability to gain personal data from cell phones and smart devices. Many users found that the app was spying on them and shared it with other users online.

Earlier this week, there was also talk that Microsoft could be interested in acquiring TikTok.

Donald Trump Suggests Delaying 2020 Presidential Election

Donald Trump is going viral after suggesting the 2020 Presidential Election be delayed.

As of right now, Democrat Joe Biden and current President Donald Trump will go head to head this November to see who will be the sitting President beginning on January 20, 2021.

Trump just tweeted, “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” The argument for mail-in ballots is to help keep social distancing measures in effect as the country continues to battle the Coronavirus pandemic.

According to one poll, Trump is trailing Biden in current numbers. See the breakdown embedded below.

Joe Biden was actually once asked what would happen if he won the election and Trump refused to leave the White House.

“I don’t know, I haven’t really been following it too much. I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach and I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is. I don’t know the situation with Prince Andrew, I just don’t know. Not aware of it,” he said to reporters.

Ghislaine pleaded not guilty in a bail hearing last week in Manhattan federal court. Specifically, she’s charged with “enticement and conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation and conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and two counts of perjury.”

She is being held without bail.

Donald Trump's Niece Says She's Heard Him Use the N-Word & Anti-Semitic Slurs

Donald Trump‘s niece Mary Trump just released her bombshell book “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” and she’s opening up about his alleged history of making racist remarks.

Mary went on Rachel Maddow‘s MSNBC show on Thursday (July 16) and said that it was “sort of normal” to her people in her family use the N-word while growing up.

Maddow asked if the president “was an exception” to that or if she heard him use the N-word.

“Of course I did,” Mary replied. “And I don’t think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.”

Maddow then asked Mary if she specifically heard the president say the N-word and any anti-Semitic slurs and she said yes to both.

Mary also made some big claims about how the president has cheated in the past.
