Then an hour or so later, news emerged that Microsoft was interested in buying those parts of TikTok. But that now seems to off the table as Trump has announced on Air Force One to the reporters on the flight that he’s going to ban TikTok outright.

Well, this is sure to really get the Chinese really mad. Plus it will likely cause the heads of TikTok users in the US to explode. But it will also likely cause a domino effect of countries banning TikTok. Seeing as this is allegedly going to happen today, keep an eye on this space for updates.
