It was a joke, y’all. I’ll concede to public opinion and agree it was a bad one. Yes, I did watch the debate (and have the high blood pressure to show for it). Please stop roasting me, my crops are dying.

Oh it’s got problems, sure, but whether one of those problems is “leaking U.S. user data to Beijing” is highly debatable, and that’s what Trump has been citing for the reason behind the ban

LinkedIn, Reddit, and tons of other apps were discovered doing the exact same thing re: accessing iOS users’ clipboards. Also, Tiktok snooping on your data (something just about every popular app does, unfortunately) does not automatically mean they’re leaking that data to Beijing.

UCS estimates that a non-pooled ride-hailing trip generates about 47 percent greater emissions than does a private car trip in a vehicle of average fuel efficiency.” - The study states pretty plainly what that figure stands for. Doesn’t mean non-passenger bearing, just non-pooled.
