Well a bit more of the puzzle.


Trump Lends Support To Billionaire Donor Larry Ellison As He Backs Oracle's Bid For TikTok


President Donald Trump endorsed Oracle’s rumored bid to acquire TikTok’s operations in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, calling it “a great company” while expressing support for the company’s billionaire co-founder Larry Ellison, who is also a donor to Trump’s campaign.


Does not include Korea and other Asian locations, South America, Europe, etc though.


Its not even a full 5 Eyes split , unless I read it incorrectly

I'm downloading we chat onto all devices now in case trumps overreaching orders make it unavailable on the play store, and thanks to googles advanced protection that's the only way I can get apps onto things.


If this becomes a problem will have to get myself out of that so I can use my devices properly. A reduction in security as a result of a stupid govt decision. Not like thats a new thing to happen.

"US judge temporarily blocks Trump order banning TikTok app store downloads"



A judge in Washington has temporarily blocked a Trump administration order banning Apple and Google from offering Chinese-owned app TikTok for download that was set to take effect at 11:59pm on Sunday.


US district judge Carl Nichols granted a preliminary injunction sought by TikTok’s owner, ByteDance, to allow the app to remain available at US app stores, but declined “at this time” to block additional commerce department restrictions that are set to take effect on 12 November that TikTok has said would have the impact of making the app impossible to use in the United States.
