CENSORSHIP? tRUMP BANS TIK TOK & WECHAT

Is this ban because of a personal grudge or does the app in fact disrupt or threaten the US? Does it go against the first amendment rights of those Americans using the apps?



BREAKING NEWS

The Trump administration ...n the U.S.

Friday, September 18, 2020 8:34 AM EST

The administration issued new rules Friday morning that would cripple the operation of the two popular Chinese-owned apps in the United States.




The details of the prohibition are set to have a significant impact on people who use TikTok and WeChat. TikTok, which has more than 50 million active users in the United States, according to the research firm App Annie, is mostly popular here among teenagers who post short dance videos; WeChat, which has about 3.5 million active users here, is a messaging app with a host of features including a mobile wallet service.

Here's what you need to know.

What is happening, exactly?

The immediate effects of the action: As of Sunday, Americans will no longer be able to download TikTok or WeChat from the Apple and Google Play app stores. WeChat users in the United States will not be able to use the messaging app for sending payments, among other features.

TikTok is attempting to reach a deal with Oracle, an American tech company, and others before November to avoid a ban.

If Oracle goes into partnership wiht Tik Tok then he cannot ban anything. I wonder if he is still pissed cuz lots of the kids using tik tok reserved tickets to that super spreader event he had in Tulsa?

Isn’t sad, that he was so angry at the power of tik-tok on his convention? Banning Tik-Tok here will only work against him.

Possible another reason is because Tik Tok may show young girls being too sexual.

I think this is hog wash... But I think it my be legal at least in terms of such a ban being constitutional... but I do not think it is something that should be done by EO.

Your source?? lol This has been reported since yesterday.



(CNN)President Donald Trump said Saturday he has approved a deal between TikTok's parent company, ByteDance, and Oracle (ORCL), temporarily averting a ban on TikTok in US app stores.

The Commerce Department confirmed in a statement Saturday evening that it would delay — by one week — restrictions that were originally to take effect on Sunday.
