TikTok posted a video on it's app Saturday morning telling users not to worry about it being banned in the United States.

This comes less than 24-hours after President Donald Trump said he planned to block the app in America.

A one minute video titled 'A message to the entire TikTok community' was shared to the official TikTok account on the app. In it, U.S. General Manager Vanessa Pappas tells users, "We're here for the long run."

Pappas also highlights TikTok's current U.S. workforce, discusses the number of jobs the company plans to fill in America over the next three years and the "millions of Americans" who use the app.

Friday during a flight on Air Force One, President Donald Trump reportedly said, "As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States."

He has yet to respond to the latest video from the social media app.
