US TikTok move 'mafia' deal

特朗普还给微软以及TikTok的中国母公司字节跳动划定了9月15日这一完成交易的最后期限,否则TikTok在美国将被封禁。

The president also gave Microsoft and TikTok's Chinese owner, ByteDance, a deadline of Sept 15 to complete the deal, or the app will be banned in the US.
外交部发言人汪文斌8月4日在北京的一场例行发布会上表示,美方对TikTok的行动是赤裸裸的霸凌行径,“国家安全风险”只是美国打压中国科技企业的理由。

Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a regular media briefing in Beijing on Tuesday that the US treatment of TikTok is "outright bullying", and the US only uses a "national security risk" as an excuse to suppress Chinese tech enterprises.

"This is quite unusual; this is out of the norm," said Gene Kimmelman, former chief counsel for the US Department of Justice's Antitrust Division.
华盛顿智库卡托研究所的高级研究员朱利安·桑切斯说,特朗普的“勒索威胁”完全是“黑手党式的行为”。
