TikTok says it’s ’here for the long run’ after Trump’s warning

TikTok on Saturday said it’s ’here for the long run’ after President Trump said he intends to ban the app over concerns about data security. ’We’re not planning on going anywhere’, US General Manager Vanessa Pappas said in a video. Trump on Friday said he intends to sign an executive order or use an emergency economic power banning the app from the US.

Trump wants to ban Tik tok because there is a female comedian that lip reads to all of Trumps video's. It's very funny. And he can't control it. Sometimes it's not a spy thing, or a national security thing. Trump doesn't like being made fun of. And especially not from a woman. Haven't any of you learned anything over the last three years? Trump has visions of omnipotentcy. How dare anyone make fun of me. I'll show them! Y'all made him. We only have a few more months to deal with him. Then it will be the courts problem. WAKE UP!

Wonder why corporate America bans TikTok too? Maybe it is truly a security concern

It's naive to think that the US owners don't have to listen to the dictates of their communist overlords. Remember they know who has families in China.

There used to be Vine before TikTok, they'll find another platform for publishing. And with "they" I mean the average users of TikTok.

#45 did that for a reason. Dig deeper into this tik tok deal you will see what he did made them reverse a decision they made that would surrender our 1st amend. rights and allow tik to to use our info as they wish. Hes always miles ahead of all these toads. Microsoft is bad Wake up sheeple.

Incredibly naive if he thinks a TikTok ban is going to do anything against Chinese apps, lol. Drop in the bucket.

I think this is more about preventing the rise of China than actual concern about data collection. If Tik Tok is collecting our data, what is the difference between that and what Facebook and Twitter are doing? How come we're not banning Facebook and Twitter? All these tech companies are collecting data which the US government uses to spy on us. Tik Tok is not any better or worse. The only difference is that it's Chinese.

Honestly I doubt the wish to ban Tik Tok has anything to do with security. And 💯 percent to do with the fake RSVP to his Tulsa Event that made him look foolish. If users on the App were today put out a vide praising the Orange One. He’d immediately change his sorry tune and repost the video everywhere.

As if wasn't doing the exact same thing since 2014. Executive order is not the way to do this.

China can’t seem to follow our laws. Why should we do business with them?

I feel so old. I haven't even set up a Myspace page or a Tweet account or even Instantgram. I guess I dont want anyone knowing what I'm up to unless they ask me directly.
