    Makes sense TikTok is the noise a clock makes. The hands on the clock do a full circle. A circle is 360 degrees. Thus TikTok 360

    Yes but president Chump doesn't care about what American companies do he only cares about attacking other countries. He failed miserably at being horrible to Mexico so now he has moved over to hating China.

    He's scared when China can spy on his Americans but if it's his own American government spying on Americans in the same way as tiktok then he will probably be happy with it

    I think the fear is 1/3 of Americans have this app and the data may be used as a form of cyber warfare

    Of course it's worse when a hostile nation has your data as opposed to your own government

    Unlike Mexico, China has 100% earned the US's ire. I have innumerable complaints about his policies in general, but my only two complaints on Trump's China policy is that it is too unilateral and too inconsistent. Also, remember the controversy with Russia interfering in US elections via US-based social media? China could do the same thing with Tik-Tok, but orders of magnitude worse. Whereas Russia had to rely on clumsy direct methods that anyone could use, the owner of such a platform could use far, far more subtle methods by directly modifying the algorithms that serve content to viewers. Such a method would almost certainly be far more effective and far harder to detect. Data collection is only the most obvious and arguably least dangerous of the potential threats.

    Now?
    Probably still TikTok

    In 15 months?
    Another dead service/product in the long list of acquisitions and attempts Microsoft made because they wanted a userbase off the shelf and not having to earn one. However being Microsoft they hose it up.

    The U.S. is hypocritical as we spy on other countries. Edward Snowden proved that much.
