TikTok is owned by the Chinese company ByteDance. US President Donald Trump has previously said that he will ban TikTok on US territory if the US division of the social network or its entire network is not bought by an American company. The US administration claims that TikTok's management is engaged in propaganda and transmits user data to the Chinese authorities.
