After TikTok, It’s Time For Alibaba To Bid Goodbye To America

Recently, China’s popular visual content platform Tiktok was banned by India and the US. Now, US President Donald Trump is preparing to clamp down on Chinese companies. Trump has now hinted at a ban on China’s tech giant Alibaba. In a press conference on Saturday, Trump said he was considering banning Alibaba in the US.

America has banned Tiktok

US President Donald Trump has signed a proposal to ban Chinese company Bytedance’s short video app Tiktok. Now Trump has issued an executive order directing Bytedance to sell its Tiktok business in the US within 90 days. Trump wrote in an order issued on Friday that there is credible evidence that convinced me that Bydance could take action that could be a threat to America’s national security. Trump had earlier said in executive orders that the Chinese company would be banned from doing business with American companies after 45 days. Tiktok has also threatened legal action against this order.
