Previously, Trump announced he planned on signing an executive order to ban TikTok in America. Now, the general manager of TikTok, Vanessa Pappas has responded directed to the claim.
Via Instagram, Pappas said “I want to say thank you to the millions of Americans who use TikTok everyday bringing their creativity and joy into our daily lives. We’ve heard your outpouring support and we want to say thank you. We’re not planning on going anywhere.
She also said “I also want to thank our 1,500 U.S. employees who work on this app every day and the additional 10,000 jobs that we’re bringing into this country over the next three years.” The announcement allegedly is in response to the users of TikTok who reportedly got tickets for his Tulsa rally in advance just to leave the seats empty.
