What the United States has done to TikTok is almost the same as a
gangster forcing an unreasonable and unfair business deal on a
legitimate company. […]
China has no reason to give the green light to such a deal, which
is dirty and unfair and based on bullying and extortion. If the US
gets its way, it will continue to do the same with other foreign
companies. Giving in to the unreasonable demands of the US would
mean the doom of the Chinese company ByteDance.
Effectively, it sounds like they’re telling Trump to go pound sand.
