U.S. President Donald Trump has signed an order banning the use of TikTok and WeChat apps within 45 days if they are not sold to U.S. companies.

According to the decree, it is forbidden to enter into any agreement with the Chinese company ByteDance, which owns the social network TikTok. A similar measure will be taken against Tencent, which runs the WeChat application.

According to the White House, these platforms pose a threat to US security and restrictive measures are being considered to eliminate it.

Trump says applications developed by Chinese companies pose a threat to U.S. national security, foreign policy and the economy. According to him, TikTok collects personal data of American users. In doing so, China is spying on U.S. officials and creating an archive of personal data for blackmail and corporate espionage.

ByteDance said last week that TikTok would not leave the U.S. market and that the application was secure for personal data.

Earlier, Microsoft announced its intention to acquire the social network TikTok. In response, Trump said he would support the deal “if the US Treasury gets the bulk of its value.” At the same time, the US President warned that he intends to close the social network until September 15.

More than 80 million people in the United States use TikTok.
