Chinese-owned TikTok is working to distance itself from Beijing in the face of a threatened ban from the Trump administration and broader scrutiny out of Washington, where policymakers are looking to blunt China’s influence and economic might.
TikTok plans to add 10,000 jobs in the U.S. in the next three years as user growth explodes, spokesperson Josh Gartner told Axios. TikTok’s U.S. job growth has already nearly tripled this year, going from almost 500 employees Jan. 1 to just under 1,400.
