Trump's threat to bar TikTok comes as the administration investigates whether the app's parent company, ByteDance, is harvesting data from Americans.

WASHINGTON – Escalating tensions with Beijing, President Donald Trump threatened Friday to ban TikTok from operating in the U.S.

The president said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to ban the Chinese-owned company from the U.S.

Trump's threat comes as the administration is investigating whether the app's parent company, ByteDance, is harvesting the data of millions of American users.

The president has long benefited from social media platforms – most notably Twitter and Facebook – but he has also pilloried those companies, accusing their executives of squelching conservative voices on their platforms

The announcement comes weeks after Trump critics used TikTok to inflate expectations for turnout expected at the president's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a major embarrassment for the president's campaign. 

The threat comes at a moment of extremely frayed U.S
