Beijing on Friday accused the United States of “suppression” after President Donald Trump ordered sweeping restrictions towards Chinese social media giants TikTok and WeChat.
Chinese international ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin informed a daily press briefing that the US transfer got here on the expense of American customers and corporations.
They come because the world’s two greatest economies conflict over a number of points from the coronavirus to Hong Kong and Chinese telecoms big Huawei.
Trump’s orders say the social media giants are a risk to US “national security, foreign policy, and economy”, because the president seeks to curb China’s energy in international expertise.
Wang stated “the US frequently abuses its national power and unjustifiably suppresses non-US companies”.
“At the expense of the rights and interests of US users and companies, the US… is carrying out arbitrary political manipulation and suppression,” he added.
