At one point recently 40% of TikTok IP's were in China.  ProtonMail says tons of traffic on TikTok rolling through China.

Is this legal? Sounds monarchical, definitely not capitalistic.

Yes, the executive branch has that power.

I don't know all the legal ins and outs and what-have-yous but I think this is the right move.

He's done it before but are we aware of other cases of this happening before 2017?

I don't know all the legal ins and outs and what-have-yous but I think this is the right move.

I don't eff with tiktok specifically because of the overt Chinese spying thing, I just didn't know the legality of a president forcing a private company out of business. If there are serious espionage threats I get it. Is this the first time two times another country has attempted to use a business within our country as a vehicle for espionage?
