After India, will US ban Tiktok?: Watch Donald Trump's response

US President Donald Trump has said that his government is looking at banning Chinese video-sharing application Tiktok.

When asked a question on the issue, the US President said they are looking into the issue and are thinking about making a decision.

This comes after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that the US government was carrying out a national security review on TikTok and that his department would advise Trump what, if any, needs to be taken against it.

Earlier in the month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the Trump administration was considering a ban on access to the TikTok application over privacy concerns.

Meanwhile, Beijing has accused the US of using government mechanisms to pressure Chinese companies.

Tiktok has claimed that user data is safe and not shared with Chinese authorities.

This comes after India earlier banned the video-sharing app and several others over privacy concerns.

The US had lauded India's decision and said that the move will protect India's integrity and national security.
