At a press conference on Friday (14th), trump downplayed the question of “whether the ban will affect iPhone sales in China and other markets.”. < / P > < p > recently, while continuing to “encircle and suppress” tiktok, trump has extended his black hand to wechat. On the 6th of this month, trump issued an administrative order, threatening to prohibit individuals or entities within the jurisdiction of the United States from conducting wechat related transactions with Tencent after 45 days (September 20). Apple shares fell 2.27% the next day (7th).
Trump ignored the WeChat Ban’s impact on iPhone sales, and also caused netizens to make complaints about it. A netizen said: “maybe (trump) didn’t buy Apple shares.” < / P > < p > Trump’s “indifference” obviously also caused anger among some netizens who contacted the poor epidemic situation in the United States. “Is it just about mobile phones and apple? The 170000 Americans who died of the epidemic show that trump “doesn’t care about anything.” Trump’s move has also raised concerns in the US media. The ban on wechat, which is the core application for Chinese people to realize digital life, will weaken the appeal of iPhone to Chinese people and damage iPhone sales in China, according to a report on August 7. In an August survey conducted by Bloomberg, 95% of Chinese respondents said they would rather change their iPhones than give up using wechat. < p > < p > Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo warned on Monday (10th) that if wechat is removed from the shelves of global app stores, iPhone shipment will drop by 30%; if it is only removed from the U.S. app store, iPhone shipment will drop by 6%. In response to trump’s ban on tiktok and wechat, foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin once responded that the US side’s relevant action was “naked bullying”, and China firmly opposed it. Wang Wenbin stressed that “if you win the way, you will get more help, but if you do not, you will not be able to help.”. The U.S. side does not hesitate to damage the rights and interests of American users and companies, puts its own private interests above market principles and international rules, and wantonly carries out political manipulation and political repression. In return, it can only get its own moral decline, national image damage and International Trust deficit, and will eventually eat its own fruit.
