Tik Tok downloads stopped in US

As of last Monday people living in the US haven’t been able to download TikTok.

This new rule follows an order from President Donald Trump.

He has ordered US app stores such as Apple and Google to remove TikTok and another app called WeChat.

However, TikTok users will still be able to continue to use the app if they have it installed already, but it will not be updated. Any existing users won’t be able to re-download it if they delete it.

TikTok has 100 million users in the US.

However, the app is owned by Chinese firm ByteDance and Donald Trump has described TikTok along with WeChat, which is also Chinese owned, as a ‘threat’.
