President Trump said Friday he planned to bar the Chinese-owned social media platform Tik Tok from operating in the United States. 

Trump told reporters traveling with him from Tampa that he planned to take action against the popular video-sharing app as soon as Saturday. 

“As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said. 

Trump said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to ban TikTok in the United States.

“Well, I have that authority. I can do it with an executive order or that,” he said referring to emergency economic powers. 

Trump made clear he was not in favor of a deal to let a U.S. company buy TikTok’s American operations. 

The rest of his comments were OFF RECORD.
