TikTok to be Banned From Revenue in US Starting September

Tik Tok

TikTok will be banned on September 20th in the United States, according to the White House. Leo says that technically, the ban is only on money that is transferred out of the US to China, including ad revenue.  The President has also given Microsoft the OK to buy TikTok and they have until Sept 20 to get a deal done. Not only that, but Trump wants the US to receive a cut of the deal if it happens. 

Leo says that this is really much ado about nothing and amounts to a kind of heist to secure Tik Tok away from a Chinese company. Leo adds that TikTok's spying on users isn't like Huawei in the least. In fact, it's just like every other app that spies on you, and they all do.
