    Is that what this is about? The worst about everything that's happening is I don't know if anything from this administration can be trusted. Everything the man says is suspect and his motives are self serving so I'm inclined to disregard this but Tik Tok could be bad and there's a chance I wouldn't get the memo. I'm not really concerned since I don't use it but I want to understand the larger issue.

    The app is Chinese owned and there are alleged security issues.

    Are the concerns expressed by anyone outside than the trump administration?

    I heard Microsoft is trying to buy Tick Tock, Facebook doesn't want that to happen. Facebook supports Trump.

    Yes. Tik Tok has been a concern for awhile now but he didn’t care until this Tulsa thing happened. We will see if he tries to block an American company from buying them.

    This is exactly what I was coming in to say - minus the Microsoft bit (I didn’t know about that).

    I just felt TikTok could be a treat to instagram and Facebook has been chummy with Trump

    He said Tic Tok is banned effective 9/15 unless MS or another company buys it outright.
