TikTok has been marching towards a potential ban in the United States for weeks now. And unless something changes soon, that will come to pass in just a couple of days.
The United States Commerce Department has now confirmed with Reuters that it plans to issue an order today that will “deplatform” both TikTok and WeChat in the United States. With this order, it will effectively ban anyone in the United States from downloading TikTok and WeChat beginning Sunday, September 20, 2020.
