TikTok: Our Way or the Huawei

August 4, 2020

Excitement ahead. There’s nothing like the Rona and a financial crisis to catch attention. But these may be also ran topics if the trade tension between China and the US is cranked up.

China Accuses US of Outright Bullying over TikTok” reports that Wang Wenbin (Chinese official) allegedly said:

“The US, without providing any evidence, has been using an abused concept of national security… unjustifiably suppressing certain non-US companies.”

To add some zest, President Trump wants Microsoft to know that its okay to buy TikTok comes with a price tag? The figures are not available. Whatever the amount, a piece of the action goes to the US government.

That angle is likely to put some on edge. Yep, it seems that the US wants one way or its the Huawei for the only app in several years which may have a chance to generate traction in the wonderlands of Facebook and YouTube.
