TikTok BOOM! First shots fired in US-China Internet Cold War (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 625.

Chinese app TikTok remains under fire by President Trump, with allegations that their being Chinese means China could access their user data, making it a serious problem. President Trump is set to ban TikTok next month.

US officials see this as something China is bound to do with their apps, because Edward Snowden’s leaks showed this is exactly what the US did with its many apps and their user data. And yet did it happen?

The latest report out of the CIA says no. While they said it is possible for China to access such user data, because of course it is, they confirmed that there is no evidence that any such things ever happened with TikTok.

TikTok had already said they’d done nothing wrong, faulting Trump’s ban as denying them due process. They promise to “pursue all remedies available to us.” With US tensions toward China growing, it’s likely they’ll try to limit remedies.

The US forces this War, out of pure hostile ideological reasons, on their Semiductor industry [the only US made products really still on demand globaly] and their pissing their pants because most of their products they sell to China and the US Regime try very hard to destroy them, now the US Regime blackmails the big Foundries to stop doing business with their major customers in China as well because they use some US equipment and tech they legally bought and they start pissing their pants as well because the US try to destroy them as well. I guess what… Read more »

Thank you, Alex and Alexander, for this good dialogue and analysis. China, with or without Tik Tok, is on the rise economically. The USA, with or without President Trump, will have to deal with it.
