    Trump is using Microsoft so he can buy his own social media application. It stands to reason that as others are blocking him Donald wants his own. So now Donald is going after our kids and Microsoft is helping him.

    All social media platforms steal all of your data. They then sell the data to the government & corporations. (This data is then used for marketing and/or to manipulate society) However, China doesnt allow American social media platforms, Hence why USA is against Tiktok. Meaning China doesn't trust American platforms like twitter, Facebook, MERCEDESBENZ, etc because USA can collect data on china. So Why should America allow a Chinese platform (TikTok) that collects data on Americans? That's what this is about. Both governments are evil regardless.

    I am going to stop watching your show because you have no wisdom. You turn everything into politics. DONALD TRUMP IS RIGHT. I like neither Trump nor Obama, but allowing a Chinese company to have a Social Network in the USA is a great national security issue, especially when our social network medias are not allowed in China. Never trust anyone who dont trust you. I am supporting Donald Trump on this, and on the issue of the trade imbalance. We need a president that can stand up for the best interest of the US. I never liked the republican party but I need to know where Joe Biden stands on this particular matter, if he is willing to stand up and block Tik Tok as Trump is doing. I have 2.75M people in my database, I am going to give them the correct information

    Yeah he still needs to ban it. I bet it will still have ties to China.In the last update for Windows 10, Google Chrome, Facebook, Microsoft Edge, and MERCEDESBENZ got all mashed together in sending notifications on every little thing. I hate it!! I won't be surprised TickTock will get thrown in the mix whether I like it or not.

    Trump's remarks makes share price in tik-tok go down perhaps only for the reason for microsoft to get a cheaper price to be able to buy & profit. Maybe Trump gets a back-hand of cash for his help.. Ha beware as plots and ploys always at play..
