I have a question regarding the definition of "about to" and "on the verge of"
I was told that they mean the same, in which they mean that they both indicate that the thing is going to happen in the future very soon. I don't think that's the case, though.
Tiktok is on the verge of getting banned in America.
Tiktok is about to get banned in America.
Can someone tell me the difference?
Is there a difference?
