The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, is going to ban the application of TikTok in America.
In addition, according to the international press, he could order the Chinese company ByteDance to sell the application, one of those interested in buying the platform being the giant Microsoft.
Several analyzes around the application showed that Microsoft is negotiating the acquisition of the software, according to The New York Times.
Earlier this week, the Trump administration began studying the application, fearing that the TikTok would not be used for espionage by the Chinese.

Thousands of people have celebrated 155 years since the abolition of slavery in the United States. The statue of a Confederate general, shot down by protesters
Thousands of Americans marked the 155th anniversary of "Juneteenth" (English name formed by the combination of the word "June" and 19) on Friday, the date of the abolition of slavery, amid racial tensions affecting the country after the death of George Floyd, according to AFP.
"I am a woman of color, I have lived in this country for 20 years and I am here to say that the lives of blacks matter, those of my children and brothers, to be able to live in a safe country," he told AFP , Tabatha Bernard, 38, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, in the huge New York procession.
Demonstrations on the occasion of "Juneteenth", the day in 1865 when the last slaves were released in Galveston, Texas, were organized in the four corners of the country.
In Washington, protesters who denounced "racism, oppression and police violence" first gathered around the Martin Luther King Memorial at the call of professional players from local basketball clubs.
Near the White House, the event was festive in the already well-known meeting place called "Black Lives Matter Plaza". Hundreds of people danced to the sounds of Go-go Music before marching through the streets of the center of the federal capital.
"We will not be able to eliminate all racist police officers," said Joshua Hager, 29, but "we want most of them fired and held accountable."
His partner, Yamina BenKreira, expressed the wish that the history of African Americans be better taught so that young people "become aware" of these discriminations.
In recent weeks, calls for the dismantling of monuments in memory of Confederate soldiers present throughout the south of the country have multiplied.
At the root of this movement is the debate over racism in America, rekindled by the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American who suffocated under the knee of a white police officer during his arrest in late May in Minneapolis.
Shocking statements! US President Donald Trump announced on Monday (June 1st) that he will send the army to the streets to stop the protests in Washington and promised to do the same in other cities if mayors and governors fail to regain control of the streets. The protests began after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed man in police custody, killed by a police officer.
"Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence is stopped," Trump said in the White House garden as protesters were scattered with tear gas.
"If a city or a state refuses to take the necessary measures to defend the lives and property of its inhabitants, then I will deploy the US military and quickly solve the problem in their place," Trump warned, according to news.ro.
President Donald Trump on Monday called on U.S. states to fight violent protests in cities, saying officials should "dominate" and arrest people to restore order after a sixth consecutive night of vandalism and robbery. press, reports Reuters.
Residents and business owners in cities from New York to Santa Monica, California, spent Monday cleaning broken windows and taking stock of damage following new violent clashes between protesters challenging racial inequalities and police.
Not everybody, but tens and tens of millions of Americans feel that the political establishment, Republican and Democrat, have failed.

Drug traffickers are taking advantage of the coronavirus pandemic and are hiding drugs among protective equipment delivered to various countries around the world. Some managed to hide the narcotics even in hand sanitizer bottles, believing that this way they would not be discovered by investigators.
Every day, organized crime officers discover drug traffickers, dismantle networks and confiscate drugs. Investigators and smugglers appear to be in competition. Some are looking for new ways to hide the goods and others have to find them.
The worst thing is that criminals are trying to take advantage of the pandemic and hide drugs in humanitarian transport.
Earlier this month, Australian border guards found several kilograms of methamphetamine in shipments of disinfectants and masks sent from Canada to Australia, CNN reports.
"We know that criminals will push any limit to bring drugs into the country, so it is no wonder they are trying to use indispensable items during the pandemic, such as masks and hand sanitizer to hide them," said ABF chief John Fleming .
The drugs were found while officers were inspecting shipments at the Sydney Gateway Facility.
When officers opened several boxes to check them, they found among the packages of masks and two bottles of hand sanitizer wrapped in air bubble foil. Everything seemed in order, however, something made the law enforcement officers think and they analyzed the containers more carefully. They found that they had fake bottoms. Inside the secret compartment was a crystal-like substance, which was later tested positive for methamphetamine, officials said. In total, almost two kilograms of illicit substance were found.
