 Quoting: TheGasMan II


China released a BIOWEAPON during an international espionage operation, to steal that BIOWEAPON, which has resulted in more AMERICAN DEATHS than the last 3 wars combined, including the destruction of our economy and Trump’s response is to ban a kid’s app, while none of these geniuses question why Trump isn’t banning all the other Chinese APPS that spy on Americans, because then there will be a call to ban all the American APPS that the US GOVERNMENT uses to spy on Americans

Yeah ok, 'cause he can totally ban a company.

A foriegn company thats acting as an agent for a hostile government?

Sure he can, and he will tomorrow. They'll sue for an injunction & Barr will demand discovery.

Then the CCP will fold and retaliate with restrictions on American companies.

Good , the less business we do with the chicoms the better.

This is what happens:

Microsoft enter into negotiations to buy TikTok. They eventually buy TikTok. TikTok is now American owned. Trump claims it as a victory.

What's sad is the liberals/leftists of Seattle-based Microsoft are not necessarily less conniving and unethical - and less anti-US - than the hard leftists of China are.

Re: BREAKING: Trump is banning TikTok!!!!
Right, he'll totally ban an entire company that has a current value affixed at $50 billion. Do you even think before posting? Did you see the Microsoft is considering buying the company? I assume not since you think Trump can and will actually ban a company from existence in the country. Christ, you people will believe anything, won't you?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79178573


If you don't think Trump would do this, you probably haven't realized how bad things are with China right now.

UK/US supported the rioting in Hong Kong. They wanted a deal to guarantee more autonomy for Hong Kong, because it's how/where they control/try to control China from. They've been losing control of China for years now. But the British controlled China going way back and they created the Chinese Communists as a way to prevent the USA from controlling China through the ties the US made with the Chinese Nationalists while fighting Japan in WWII.

So instead of gaining more autonomy for Hong Kong, they failed so bad that China released an economic bioweapon and passed a national security law that gives them basically full legal control over Hong Kong. China is also backing the rioting in the US in retaliation. It has zero chance of creating a real revolution though and they've really blown their wad on that one, there's no coming back from it.

Another reason Hong Kong is important is because Hong Kong banks are where a lot of money in the international illegal drug trade has always been banked. China's new security law means they just took it all. Total gangster move.

A 50 billion dollar company you say? The world wide illegal drug trade is worth about 1% of total world wide trade every year. It was estimated at being worth $350 billion a year in the early 2000s. Their new national security law surely gave them control over more than a trillion dollars in stashed drug money.

It may or may not actually be happening yet but sometimes false alarm stories like this come out on purpose to test reactions and hint that they are not bluffing and could really do it, etc.

Stick a fork in China, they're done. This is a major break in relations. First "globalization" became just China then it failed completely. The Clintons and all their UK buddies failed at their life long project, it's over.

But Microsoft, a US company, was going to buy it from the Chinese parent company. That would have made it AMerican, not Chinese.

We are still in the air on Air Force One, landing shortly. Trump came back to speak with us off the record and agreed to move the portion about TikTok on the record
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72798899


Does anyone know anything anymore? No, Trump cannot just ban Tiktok. There is currently no law on the books that would allow this. In case some of you nuts haven't figured this out yet, Trump is not a King and cannot just randomly issue decrees.
Go check out some of the scathing rebukes of Trump by the Supreme Court of some of his illegal actions. And yes, I'm aware of the just released opinion on the wall. This is only a temporary order and the case is still pending.

Everyone one filters their opinions, including about the US Constitution, through their political prism, of leftwing or rightwing.

Liberals have been twisting, trashing and distorting the rules of law for decades, including those of the executive, judicial and legislative branches.

I won't say your opinion is wrong, but I will say you have less ground to stand on if you've given way too much slack to a variety of scumbag liberals through the years.

But Microsoft wouldn't have ran the company within the usa.

Nike is also a us company, but all of the manufacturing is in Vietnam, China, Malaysia, etc.

That's not really American.

We need a ban on all imports.

If it's not made here, it can't be sold here with very few exceptions.

Until we do that, our economy will never return, plain and simple.
