The administration also reported on the preparation of measures against TikTok and other Chinese applications.
During negotiations over a new economic aid package designed to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, Democrats rejected four White House proposals and did not put forward any themselves, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said during a press briefing on Tuesday.
“The Democrats are making a mockery of this process,” she said. – We are still interacting with them, but the President has made it clear that he is ready to act.”
McEnany also said that the administration will soon take action against the TikTok service and other Chinese apps due to the threat to national security. According to her, the President and Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that measures will be taken in the coming days. She did not specify details about the planned measures.
McEnany added that the administration is closely monitoring the situation in Beirut, where a powerful explosion occurred on Tuesday, killing at least 10 people.
