US Will Act to Deny China Access to Americans’ Data, Says Pompeo

2020-07-08 23:46
WASHINGTON—The Trump administration will take steps to ensure the Chinese communist regime does not gain any access to the private information of American citizens through telecommunications and social media, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday when asked if the United States was planning to ban Chinese-owned app Tiktok. Pompeo also praised U.S. technology giants Google, Twitter Inc., and Facebook Inc. for 'refusing to surrender' user data to the Hong Kong government and urged other companies to follow suit, after China's establishment of a sweeping new national security law for the semi-autonomous city.
