"Trump said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to enforce the action, insisting, “I have that authority.”"

True, I got voted down when I took it away from my 12 YO. But she actually came to agree with me. It brings out the worst in adolescents.

And just how will that be accomplished? And they force Apple and android to remove it from their App Library’s? Even then, when people access it via a browser, how is the government going to put a stop to that?

He better get Microsoft to buy it first (instead of banning it), otherwise a lot of PO’ed 18-28 y/o voters.

That is a very good question. One that I hope has already been answered within the Administration.

Might as well also ban Google, since Google is best pals with the Chinese, and their connection is something to fear as far as compromising the users’ data and personal information. If Tik-Tok is dangerous, so is Google and Facebook and Twitter.

30 Jul: Inventiva: TikTok Hits Hard After India Took Its Veil Out: Bans Are Being Imposed All Around The World Alarming A Security Threat
By Priyadharshini Varadharajan
India was the first country to ban it, now other countries want to follow the suit...
More criticism came Tik Tok’s way in June. News reports that they have found that the app was snooping on the clipboards of users. This feature allows someone to copy and paste data from one app to another. These privacy concerns have led to lawsuits.

Tik Tok’s Chinese origins don’t help it either. Under China’s security law, the company has to share user data if the Chinese government demands it. The threat of snooping has led to several bans on Tik Tok. The US army and navy have banned it. The Australian defense department banned Tik Tok in January. Earlier this month, Tik Tok was banned from all American’s government-issued phones. Now the administration is mulling a complete ban. Lawmakers are patching for broader restrictions now. They want a complete ban for everyone in America. The US secretary of State’s Mike Pompeo stated that ETC...

The company has denied allegations that it shares user data with the Chinese government.


Of course. The Chicoms just help themselves. “No permission needed.”

This president just keeps on doing his job, and doesn’t seem to worry about what the woke millions think.

The information in the public domain is sufficient to demand that this CCP spyware get deleted. US Intel will have even more information, which is probably why he’s acting now.

It seems like the next thing to do would be for some country to design it’s own version of Tik Tok and Zoom.
Maybe that’s coming up soon, considering how popular both these apps have proven to be.
