According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the administration is "looking at" the possibility of banning a range of Chinese apps, including the hugely popular video-sharing app.

TikTok, which was downloaded 315 million times in the first three months of the year, has long been a source of national security concern for U.S. politicians, and now the Trump administration says it's seriously considering banning the app.

"We are taking this very seriously and we are certainly looking at it. With respect to Chinese apps on people's cell phones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right," Pompeo told Fox News on Monday night, in response to a question about banning TikTok and other apps. "I don't want to get out in front of the President, but it's something we're looking at."
