It seems TikTok may meet the same fate as its predecessor Vine this weekend.
While aboard Air Force One, President Donald Trump told reporters that he’d use emergency economic powers, or issue an executive order, Saturday to ban the popular video-based app, according to a press pool report from Los Angeles Times reporter David Cloud.
“As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump said.
People online immediately pointed to the two reasons they think are behind Trump’s decision: TikTok star Sarah Cooper, a comedian who has gained traction on the app for her impersonations of the president, and the TikTok-led sabotage of his Tulsa rally.
Coincidentally, Cooper made a spoof of the president talking about the potential of a ban just hours before Trump’s announcement.
She also pointed out that one of her most recent viral videos, in which she mocks Trump boasting about his cognitive test, wasn’t even created on the app.
In response to the news, the people of the internet did what they do best: laugh at the pain of losing yet another beloved app.
