  • - President Trump has done it again.

  • He's gonna ban yet more social media.

  • We're looking at a New York Times story entitled

  • "Trump Bans Alipay and 7 Other Chinese Apps."

  • What President Trump did yesterday

  • is issue an executive order which prohibits

  • these Chinese pay apps from doing transactions.

  • If we're looking at the exact ones that are banned,

  • it is Alipay, it is CamScanner, QQ Wallet,

  • SHAREit, Tencent QQ, Vmate, WeChat Pay, and WPS Office.

  • In China, lots of different citizens

  • do all their online commerce using pay apps.

  • And so, this really, this executive order

  • which bands these apps in America

  • really does hinder Chinese app commerce.

  • And so it has a big effect on the future

  • for Chinese commerce.

  • Now, a lot of people are saying

  • why is president Trump doing this ban again?

  • You'll remember back in, I believe September of 2020,

  • President Trump banned not only Tiktok, but also WeChat.

  • Well, the reason why he's banning again, these apps,

  • is because he believes it's a national security threat.

  • He says that a lot of these different apps collect a lot

  • of different information, private information,

  • and the Chinese government can somehow have access

  • to this information

  • through these Chinese companies

  • and could blackmail potentially Americans,

  • could maybe spy on Americans.

  • And he says that's a big enough threat

  • that he wants to ban these different apps.

  • So, we'll look at this paragraph right here.

  • It says here it's quoting the executive order.

  • "In the order, the president said

  • that China had been using 'bulk data collection'

  • to advance its economic and national security agenda

  • that the targeted apps put Americans at risk."

  • So, that's the reason that he's advancing

  • for banning these apps.

  • My question to you, which you can put in the comments below,

  • is do you believe this?

  • Do you believe that China is,

  • one, trying to get Americans private data

  • in order to somehow hurt America,

  • hurt our economic interests.

  • And then also, let me know if we're doing this to China,

  • you know, there's a lot of other different countries

  • that Americans use their apps from.

  • In other words, there are, you know,

  • let's say Israel has a number

  • of different countries that have apps that Americans use.

  • If we're gonna ban China apps,

  • should we ban other countries' apps?

  • Let me know in the comments section below.

  • We're gonna get into a little more discussion here.

  • China, of course, is extremely angry about this of course.

  • A spokesperson from China's Foreign Ministry

  • says "another example of American bullying,

  • hegemonic behavior, which has overextended

  • the concept of national security, abused national power,

  • and unreasonably suppressed foreign companies.

  • It harms others without benefiting itself."

  • So, they're angry and they're gonna take action

  • to protect their Chinese companies

  • and maybe they'll take action against America.

  • We don't know.

  • Now, how does this affect you?

  • And who does this affect the most?

  • Your first thought might be, this affects Chinese Americans.

  • People who use these Chinese pay apps when they go back

  • and forth between America and China.

  • You'll know that a lot of these apps actually require you

  • to have a Chinese bank account

  • or you've gotta be referred from a citizen of China.

  • So, a lot of us don't have access to these apps.

  • So, who does it really hurt?

  • I'm thinking, not just Chinese Americans,

  • but more importantly, Joe Biden.

  • You know, you've gotta remember,

  • Joe Biden may be president soon

  • and if he is, then he's gonna be saddled

  • with his executive order which requires a 45 day period

  • of investigation by the government.

  • So, in order to unwind this executive order,

  • he may face a concern about looking weak with China.

  • He doesn't wanna look like, you know,

  • an executive order's passed

  • and there's really evidence to support it

  • and then all of a sudden he takes the presidency

  • and he says, "Oh, you know what?

  • I don't really want this executive order."

  • It may hurt his reputation

  • with China and the U.S. reputation with China.

  • So, there are a number of different possible effects

  • of this executive order.

  • It is also interesting how President Trump

  • with, I mean, I think he's out of office allegedly

  • on January 20th of 2021,

  • why he's passing these executive orders?

  • It's also interesting,

  • are there going to be more executive orders

  • that he rushes to get out before he gets out of office?

  • Apparently.

  • Let me know in the comment section below

  • about what you think about this executive order

  • which bands yet more social media.

  • You have to remember, this is like the first time

  • the president of the United States,

  • and I don't mean just Trump, I mean any president

  • of the United States is actively passing

  • or enacting executive orders

  • that ban certain social media apps.

  • Do you think this is appropriate?

  • Should presidents issue executive orders that ban an app?

  • It kinda doesn't make sense to me.

  • Oftentimes I don't know exactly what the logistics are

  • of banning an app.

  • So, what do you think?

  • Let me know in the comments section below

  • and I'll see you soon.

  • (light music)

- President Trump has done it again.
