    ◎白宮暗示了對中國互聯網公司ByteDance所擁有的流行社交視頻應用程式TikTok採取行動的時間表。國務卿(Mike Pompeo)表示,川普政府正在考慮禁止該應用程式。川普的參謀長(Mark Meadows)表示,可能在數週內採取行動。
    ◎很多政府官員正在關注與TikTok,微信和其他應用程式有關的國家安全風險,這些風險可能會暴露於國家安全中,特別是與外國人收集美國公民資料有關。(Mark Meadows)認為,沒有任何強制性的行動截止日期,但他認為,將是在幾周而不是幾個月。
    ◎TikTok美國執行長、前迪士尼高級主管(Kevin Meyer)表示,TikTok在美國有數百名員工及安全,安保,產品和公共政策方面的主要領導者,從未向中國政府提供過用戶數據,也不會在受要求時,提供用戶數據。
    ◎但是許多美國議員仍然不敢相信,指出中國的國家情報法強迫互聯網公司在政府要求時提供數據。

     

    詳細內文:

    The White House has hinted at a timeframe for taking action against TikTok, the popular social video app owned by Chinese internet company ByteDance. Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the Trump administration was “certainly looking at” banning the app, and now Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows says a move could come within weeks.
    “There are a number of administration officials who are looking at the national security risk as it relates to TikTok, WeChat and other apps that have the potential for national security exposure, specifically as it relates to the gathering of information on American citizens by a foreign adversary,” Meadows told reporters traveling from Atlanta on Air Force One. “I dont think there’s any self-imposed deadline for action, but I think we are looking at weeks, not months.”

    TikTok denies that it is a security risk, and has taken measures to distance itself from Douyin, the Chinese version of the app. The company has appointed a new CEO, ex-Disney exec Kevin Meyer, and last week it pulled out of Hong Kong after the region adopted a new national security law giving further power to the central Chinese government.
    “TikTok is led by an American CEO, with hundreds of employees and key leaders across safety, security, product, and public policy here in the US,” the company said in response to Pompeo’s comments. “We have no higher priority than promoting a safe and secure app experience for our users. We have never provided user data to the Chinese government, nor would we do so if asked.”
    Many US lawmakers remain less than convinced, however, pointing to China’s national intelligence law that compels internet companies to provide data when the government demands it.
