This is an excellent article in pair with the other on China warning Japan on banning Tik Tok.

"It would cross a rubicon in terms of internet governance," said Graham Webster, editor of the DigiChina Project at the Stanford University Cyber Policy Center.

"This would result in the U.S. appearing to support the longstanding Chinese position, which is that if they don't like the way another country's companies operate, they can ban or seize them. That would be a huge step."

It appears the US is giving the CCP a taste of its own medicine only it isn’t to prove a point but is actually adopting Communist China’s ways.

Don’t forget about the evidence. Where’s the evidence? The rule of law still rules in the US but not in China. Without evidence and due process, any company can be banned. This goes against American principles.

Well concluded and something many posters in the other article about TikTok are not aware of.
