Trump Moves To BAN TikTok App Over Massive China Spying Scandal, China Has Gen Z ADDICTED. The Trump administration says that people may be ceding their personal information to Chinese Communists.

Conflict with China seems to be ever more likely and this may be just another step in a dangerous direction. Will Democrats or Republicans be better suited for that crisis if it ever comes?
