In August 2020, Trump ordered ByteDance to sell the app to an American company. Although the deadline to complete the operation was not clear, the announcement of the United States Department of Commerce makes it clear that the appli...

In early July, Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, said on Fox News that they wanted to censor the popular app. "We are taking this very seriously. We are certainly seeing it,...
