India has banned more Chinese apps.

According to Indian news reports, the Indian government has banned an additional 47 Chinese apps which includes apps like Tiktok Lite, Helo Lite, SHAREit Lite and more.

However, the Indian government hasn't officially announced the ban yet.

India has been retaliating against China since it lost 20 soldiers in a clash with Chinese forces in June.

Last month, India banned 59 Chinese apps, including the widely-popular TikTok. After the ban, TheStreet reported on how the TikTok ban impacted India's content creators.

Before the ban, India was one of the biggest markets for TikTok with more than 120 million users. Some TikTok stars were raking in huge amounts of money thanks to the platform.

"If they have 30 million followers, they're earning around $5,000 or $6,000 per month, so it's a huge impact," said Pratik Gaur, who was a talent manager for Indian TikTokers.

After India's ban of TikTok and other Chinese apps, U.S. President Donald Trump also said that he was considering banning TikTok.

"It’s something we’re looking at, yes. It’s a big business. Look, what happened with China with this virus, what they’ve done to this country and to the entire world is disgraceful," U.S. President Trump said in an interview with Gray Television’s Greta Van Susteren.

Reacting to the initial ban of Chinese apps in India, China said it was “strongly concerned."
