Trump calls TikTok a hot brand,demands a chunk of its sales price

Source: techcrunch

I did say that if you buy it, whatever the price is, that goes to whoever owns it, because I guess its China, essentially, but more than anything else, I said a very substantial portion of that price is going to have to come into the Treasury of the United States. Because were making it possible for this deal to happen. Right now they dont have any rights, unless we give it to em. So if were going to give them the rights, then it has to come into, it has to come into this country.

6. I believe he's saying China has to pay our Treasury ... it'd be like a tariff ...

A Trump Fantasy-World tariff, where China is paying them (which of course they are not IRL).

5. I believe what he's trying to hint at in this ridiculous word salad is that Gyna has to pay tariffs

to the Treasury if IQ45 decides he's going to 'allow' MS to buy this business from a company that's in China.

He's trying to maintain his ridiculous facade that China is paying tariffs to the Treasury.

*I THINK* ... but it's hard to be sure because, well ... it's IQ45.

10. This sounds a little...

...like the Karen that jumped all over a Starbucks barista, then demanded half the money the GoFundMe set up for him brought in.

25. You're right. It is unbelievable.

Barista Lenin Guiterrez refused Amber Lynn Gilles service in Starbucks for not wearing a mask. She made a Facebook post claiming "next time I will bring a medical exemption and wait for the police." Someone set up a GFM account for Guiterrez. It hit $100,000, which the barista plans to use to study kinesiology. Now Gilles wants half the money, in part because she didn't consent to being called a Karen.

26. That's it.

This particular percentage of the population, a minority though it may be, is composed of nothing but selfish fucking assholes, male and female alike. Their arrogant, aggressive attacks on others who are doing nothing to them piss me off the most. I have zero sympathy for any of them because they have none for others, and they deserve whatever happens to them.
