Could TikTok Be Shutting Down?

Nina Wagenlander, Writer

 There has been a sort of rumor that TikTok could be getting shut down. President Trump said in one of his interviews, “I set a date of around Sept. 15, at which point it’s going to be out of business,” Trump told White House reporters. That was about 20 days ago, Tik Tok is still running smoothly with no difficulties whatsoever. Although, Trump did state in a new interview that on” Monday if Microsoft or another ‘secure’ and ‘very American’ company doesn’t buy the U.S. leg of the Chinese-owned operation by Sept. 15, the wildly-popular video app will cease operating in the U.S.” The rumor is going around that maybe, the company Microsoft will be buying the app Tik Tok.
