WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden said on Monday he was not sure if Washington would ban Chinese-owned short video app TikTok.

"I'm not sure. I know I don't have it on my phone," Biden said, responding to a reporter's question about TikTok after returning to Washington from a weekend retreat in Camp David.
