U.S. Considers Banning Chinese Social Media Behemoth TikTok to Protect America’s National Security

Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State, stated late Monday that the U.S. is considering banning TikTok and other Chinese social media apps over “national security concerns”. His comments emerged as India banned the app and Australia might be considering it. He went on to say he wanted to make sure “the Chinese Communist Party doesn’t have an easy way to access American citizens’ data.”

      You shouldn’t trust the Chinese for anything. If their product does not rust, fall apart, break, it will have spyware in it or poison. UCKF Xi and the CCP.

      Interpol should put out an arrest warrant for him as a common criminal mob chieftain and all his lieutenants. You’ll find his communist hands in everything from theft to drug distribution on the West.

      I was out in my patio and noticed a patio table made in China I had for several years and notice the thick coating all coming off exposing the thin metal frame to thick rust. And it wasn’t even in the rain and was covered and well taken care of.

      So, yeah, UCK the Chinese and their cheap CRAP! :mad:

      This is a stupid idea, to my mind. Tiktok is a very popular platform and this is very perspective. Moreover, this platform is used by children and it can’t damage the security system. In my opinion, this is a wrong policy. Now I spend my money to Buy TikTok Likes and I hope this app will not be banned.
