    Welcome to the People's Republic of America, where governments ban what they want to and tell you what you can and can't see, hear or do.

    You can still access tiktok with a VPN server or a proxy server and the US government doesn't spy on you.

    I think we should go right down India's list of banned made in China apps and do the same.. bust out the banhammer. And not a soft van like what's being done with tiktok & wechat – a straight up ban of every app that's coded by China where every large company is CCP government owned or controlled.

    Apps that are not China's intellectual property will take the reigns of their IP in the USA. Pubg mobile corp (south Korean) is doing it in India.

    Also think we should kick tencent out of Activision.

    Trump finally does something I agree with, but you know he 100% did it because he's mad at the teenagers who trolled him. Not because of Chinese data collection, Lord knows he wouldn't do anything about it if that was the only problem.
