At 9:00 pm on August 6, 2020, US President Trump (Donald Trump) issued two executive orders in succession, prohibiting US companies and US citizens from liaising with WeChat (Wechat) and its owner Tencent Holdings Co., Ltd., TikTok parent company " ByteDance” to trade, and the ban will be formally implemented after 45 days. According to the executive order, all WeChat-related products, including WeChat Pay, cannot be traded in the United States, and the specific measures will be implemented by the relevant departments.
The executive order also mentioned that telemarketing list WeChat also controlled Chinese people in the United States, preventing them from enjoying life in a free society. There is also evidence that TikTok censors information related to Hong Kong and Xinjiang, and distributes a lot of false information. On the other hand, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a bill to ban the use of TikTok on government-provided devices. With a similar bill passed by the House of Representatives last month, it is expected to be signed into U.S. law soon by the president.
When I saw the news, I had a feeling that the dark clouds had cleared and the sun was shining. On January 11, 2012, when my family of three left the brutal and brutal animal farm of China, I vowed not to use any CCP-controlled social media ever since. This is both for safety's sake and for freedom's sake - I can no longer live a life without privacy where my every move, every word and deed is under the supervision of "Big Brother". , a truly free man.
