On June 6, trump announced that, 45 days later (September 20), trump would prohibit any transactions between any individual and entity and the byte jump of tiktok parent company, but did not specify the scope of the ban. On August 12, Reuters revealed the scope of the ban, including banning tiktok from being on shelves in U.S. app stores and advertising on tiktok. According to Reuters, White House documents released to supporters last week showed that the U.S. government is considering setting obstacles to key aspects such as tiktok’s operations and financing. Under the document, transactions banned from tiktok may include: “agreements allowing tiktok to stand on the app store; advertising on tiktok; and accepting terms of service for downloading tiktok to user devices.” It is likely to hurt the development of the app by banning tiktock from appearing in app stores at Apple and the alphabet, the parent company of Google, Reuters quoted some experts in the technology industry as saying. “< p > < p > this will kill tiktok in the United States.” “If they want to develop, these restrictions will be a huge obstacle,” said James Lewis, an expert on network security at the Washington Center for strategic and international studies “< p > < p > trump issued an administrative order on August 6, which would prohibit any U.S. individual or entity from conducting any transaction with tiktok, wechat and its parent company 45 days later, but the above administrative order does not specify the scope of the prohibition, only indicating that at the end of the 45 day period, the Department of Commerce will determine which transactions will be prohibited.”. The New York Times said on the 10th that many companies were confused about this because the trump government did not clearly state the details of these transactions, and it was not clear whether their business would be forced to adjust. After the trump executive order was issued, tiktock said it would seek legal means to resist the unreasonable practices of the United States government. In addition, tiktock told advertisers it would continue to push ahead with planned advertising transactions and refund any advertising that could not be completed, Reuters reported. In case of this, tiktock is working with the traffic “big V” on the platform to move them to other platforms. Some advertisers told Reuters they were drafting contingency plans and considering marketing with other applications. It is not yet clear whether Trump’s executive order will be implemented, the report said. Microsoft is currently negotiating with tiktok to acquire tiktok’s operations in North America, Australia and New Zealand. If the deal succeeds, Trump’s executive order banning transactions with tiktok will become meaningless, Reuters commented. On August 7, Wang Wenbin, spokesman for the Ministry of foreign affairs of China, denounced the American government as “naked hegemonic act”. Wang stressed that the United States will not only harm the rights and interests of the majority of users and companies in the United States, but also take advantage of its own interests over the market principles and international rules, and arbitrarily manipulate and suppress the political affairs, and will finally take its own advantage.
