As if the U.S. government doesn’t have bigger fish to fry, they are now considering banning popular social site TikTok, according to Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. 

On Monday, Pompeo confirmed to Fox News host Laura Ingraham that they were looking into banning the app over fears of Chinese surveillance. 
“We are taking this very seriously and we are certainly looking at it. We have worked on this very issue for a long time, whether its the problem of having Huawei technology in your infrastructure—we’ve gone all over the world and we are making real progress getting that out—we had declared ZTE a danger to American national security,” Pompeo said.

“TikTok is led by an American CEO, with hundreds of employees and key leaders across safety, security, product, and public policy here in the U.S.,” a spokesperson for TikTok said. “We have no higher priority than promoting a safe and secure app experience for our users.”

However, the U.S. government seems to think much differently.

“With respect to Chinese apps on people’s cell phones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right too.” 

There is no word yet on when they will make a final decision. Elsewhere in India, a TikTok ban has been implemented due to national security and user data privacy concerns.
