Despite the upcoming shut down of TikTok in the United States, Kamala Harris, vice president in the government of Joe Biden still encourages on following Joe Biden's campagin of TikTok. Is there a contradiction or not really?

Kamala Harris says its ok, but people still think it is not ok to follow the presidentail campaign by Joe Biden on TikTok. Kamala Harris explains that it is really about the fact that the parent company of TikTok located in China should sell it if TikTok wants to stay on American market.

There is really no contradiction though on following the presidential campaign, because firstly TikTok still functions in the U.S. and secondly it is going to be sold or shut down. For now you can use it.

Harris says that they do not intend to ban TikTok first of all.

ABC News quotes and reports in short what the vice president said in an exclusive interview:

"So, let's start with this: We do not intend to ban TikTok," Harris told ABC News' Senior Congressional Correspondent Rachel Scott on "This Week."

"That is not at all the goal or the purpose of this conversation," Harris said. "We need to deal with the owner and we have national security concerns about the owner of TikTok, but we have no intention to ban TikTok."

The vice president went on to say there are "very important" benefits to the platform, including serving as an income generator for many users and "allowing people to share information in a free way."

The Biden campaign last month joined TikTok as part of an effort to get their message to reach more voters -- including younger voters -- and directed Americans to follow their account.
