LOS ANGELESThe year 2020 has definitely had chaotic moments thus far. Adding to those chaotic moments, the beloved Tik Tok social media platform is in jeopardy of being banned in the U.S. before 2021.

Along with Tik Tok, online sportsbooks have odds for if Facebook will ban political odds before a certain date.

Starting with Tik Tok, President Donald Trump has mentioned that he and his administration were looking at a potential ban on the app.

Will TikTok Be Banned In The U.S. Before 2021?

  • No -200
  • Yes +150

The fact that this is an actual topic by the government just goes to show just how crazy of a year it has been.

The reason for banning the app would be because it is manufactured by a Chinese company called ByteDance and the United States has security concerns about their ties to the Chinese government's influence on the app.

Those thinking that it is not possible for the app to be banned should look at India as an example.

India, which was the largest market for Tik Tok, banned the app last week.

The fact that their largest market banned them should be a cause for concern as there could be a security measure behind closed doors. The U.S. is not alone in talking about a possible ban as Australia has brought it up as well.

Bettors can in fact feel comfortable taking the risk with this entertainment prop bet and bet on Tik Tok to be banned in the U.S.
