Hello TikTok

Errrr, hello Mr Trump

Nice little business you've got here

Why thank you

Yes ... it would be a shame if something happened to it

Happened? Like what

Well, for example if we I decided to ban it

Why would you do that?

Oh, I don't know. Maybe we would decide it was a security risk - what with it not being american [ stands up, salutes, sits down again ]

But it isn't.

Well, we don't know that - what with it not being american [ stands up, salutes, sits down again ]

What can we do to assure you it's OK?

Hmmm, how about you sell it to me us. We'll give you a fair price what with it not being american [ stands up, salutes, sits down again ]

.... how about $1? Seems fair

That's not very much.

It's much more than it will be worth when we ban it. What with it not being american [ stands up, salutes, sits down again ]

Oh!
