“Yes, we are considering this,” he said in an interview with Gray Television, whose full version will be shown on Sunday. Commenting on the words of Pompeo, the president said: "This is a big business. Listen, what happened to China and this virus and what they did to this country and to the whole world is outrageous."
 The head of the White House noted that the TikTok ban in the country is “one of many” options that he considers as an answer to the situation with coronavirus.
