No big deal, just Team Bloomberg embracing a Chinese-owned social media platform banned by the U.S. Army to make the candidate look less elderly
How do you do, fellow kids?
Man, this is pathetic:

Maybe Mike Bloomberg missed the day on the campaign trail when even Dems agreed with the U.S. Army’s decision to ban the Chinese-owned social media platform?
I’m glad the Army is taking the potential national security risks posed by TikTok seriously.
China-owned technology companies’ collection and handling of user data, location-related data, and other sensitive personal information should concern us all.https://t.co/dPQkisq3t2

“It’s a cyber threat.” Via Military.com:
The U.S. Army has reversed its policy on TikTok, Military.com has learned, banning soldiers from using the popular Chinese social media app, which is now considered a security threat.
“It is considered a cyber threat,” Lt. Col. Robin Ochoa, an Army spokeswoman, told Military.com. “We do not allow it on government phones.”
Since it’s all the rage in D.C. to accuse Republican pols of being Russian agents, can we ask the same question of Bloomberg and China? It’s a pattern:
Mike Bloomberg recently said Xi Jinping is “not a dictator” and the Chinese Communist party is “responsive” to its people. That right there should disqualify him from ever being President of the United States. https://t.co/Eh4uQY71s0

Of course, because Bloomberg is pro-communist China https://t.co/jyT77U0D2f
