TikTok Isn't 'Going Anywhere,' Despite Trump's Threat of a U.S. Ban

TikTok Isn't 'Going Anywhere,' Despite Trump's Threat of a U.S. Ban

You’ve probably seen the headlines by now… President Trump is trying to ban Americans from using the popular social media app TikTok and lots of people are worried they’ll lose the beloved platform.

The app is owned by a Chinese company and there have been reports about security concerns in the past. Trump said on Friday night (July 31) that he plans on using an executive order to ban the app.

Now, TikTok is responding to the news and they say they don’t plan 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,” TikTok’s U.S. General Manager, Vanessa Pappas, 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.”
