Trump says he plans to ban TikTok from US

President Trump on Friday said he plans to ban TikTok from operating in the US. Trump said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order as early as Saturday to officially bar the Chinese-owned company. He added that he was not supportive of allowing an American company to acquire TikTok. This came hours after reports that Microsoft was in talks to purchase TikTok.

The real reason? Tik Tok ruined his Tulsa rally and embarrassed him. The concern over China just gives a decent cover.

I guess they want to intervene in the free market to "own the libs."

Trump is just a big baby. He’s just upset and because most people on Tik Tok don’t support him and they ruined his Rally. This has nothing to do with Communist and National Security. This is all about his big ego.

This is kind of weird.... I'm no fan of TikTok, ByteDance or the CCP, but why this particular app and company instead of others. TikTok (seems to) store data outside of China. Even if ByteDance was requested by the CCP to help, what could they really do. I also know that they help with propaganda and censorship, but that can be addressed by making users more awa6of the situation and have them push back (or leave the platform)... IMO, WeChat, Weibo and Tencent are WAY more dangerous and pose much more of a threat than TikTok. If we need to ban Chinese apps, that should be the one that is hit....
