TRUMP TO BAN TIK TOK?

By Pete Moore On August 1st, 2020

President Donald Trump has announced he is banning the Chinese-owned video-sharing app TikTok in the US.

He told reporters he could sign an executive order as early as Saturday.

US security officials have expressed concern that the app, owned by Chinese firm ByteDance, could be used to collect the personal data of Americans.

China is a hostile, despotic and genocidal communist regime. Tik Tok is Chinese spyware. It might be a disappointment to people who want to watch 16 year olds dance, but I have no problem with banning bad Chinese products. A relaxed attitude to Peking was a grave error. Teaching them that bad behaviour has its consequences is now necessary.

  1. Trump thinks tick tock is the countdown app that Dems are downloading to see him out if office .
    No wonder he wants shot of it 🤣

  2. A relaxed attitude to Peking was a grave error. Teaching them that bad behaviour has its consequences is now necessary.

    Indeed Pete

    I wouldn’t bet against Trump ending diplomatic relations with China between now and election day. He might as well go big.

  3. But apps from all the other companies outside China that collect personal data are perfectly fine.

    Tik Tok is Chinese spyware.

    No. No it isn’t.

  4. I would wonder under what authority is he banning it?

  5. Where is Pat to lament the loss of the First Amendment rights of Americans?

  6. Is Trump going to build a wall to keep Tik Toc out of the US?

    You’d think that with the US’ huge Covid infection rates he’d have more to worry about than a Chinese video app.

  7. How do you actually ban globally available Apps from being used in the US without implementing a Chinese or IranIan style government imposed national censorship firewall ?
