President Donald Trump has ramped up his campaign against wildly popular global app TikTok. According to Bloomberg, the president is reportedly considering an order that would force its Chinese parent company to divest its US operations.
TikTok raised the President’s ire in June when users trolled him before his Tulsa Rally, reserving tickets and not showing up.
Hours after those reports, President Donald Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that he’d prefer to ban the app. “We’re banning them from the United States,” the president said, according to CBS News. We could show you video of the President sharing his thoughts on the “creator” app, but why do that when we have a video from comedian Sarah Cooper.
The Brooklyn-based comedian has risen in popularity this year from her lip-syncing Trump on TikTok. She posted a clip Friday impersonating the president while he discussed the app. Just before boarding a helicopter — the noise of its blades threatening to drown him out — Trump told reporters: “We’re looking at TikTok. We may be banning TikTok, we may be doing some other things, there are a couple of options. But a lot of things are happening, so we’ll see what happens. But we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respect to TikTok.”
With a fan or hair dryer (maybe a leaf blower), the comedian is once again spot on poking fun at the President.
Cooper’s video already has 586,000 views and growing. Watch below:

TikTok hit over 2 billion downloads on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store earlier this year. Microsoft is reportedly interested in buying the app, according to The New York Times.
