  • I'm Coral Jesus.

  • Thank you for watching.

  • North Korea is a secretive communist country.

  • It's government controls the media, so there's no free press there, and the news that is reported is on Lee what the government allows.

  • But according to South Korean intelligence, Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong UN, is increasing in power.

  • She now appears to be in charge of one of the most important political organizations in North Korea.

  • This group keeps close tabs on the ruling party's three million members to make sure they're loyal enough to the government.

  • It also determines political jobs, keeps the Communist Party organized and indoctrinates North Koreans with the government's ideals.

  • If Kim Yo Jong is now in charge of the country's organization and guidance department, it would make her the second most powerful person in the country.

  • But this is also raised questions about her brother's health.

  • Kim Jong un reportedly has an unhealthy lifestyle, he said, to be a heavy smoker, he usually keeps a grueling schedule with a lot of public appearances, but he sporadically disappeared from the public eye earlier this year without an official explanation.

  • Though again, that's not unusual in North Korean media in the United States.

  • There's a controversy right now over a possible government ban on tick tock.

  • The Trump administration says.

  • The Chinese video sharing application collects huge amounts of data from its users their Internet searches wherever they've gone with their phones and the U.

  • S.

  • Has given Tik TAKS owner until September 20th to fix the problem or possibly sell its US services to a U.

  • S company.

  • Tic TAC is suing.

  • It says the Trump administration didn't give the company a fair chance to defend itself and that the upcoming ban is politically motivated against China.

  • Tick Tock has been banned in India over its data collection practices, but the company still has an estimated 800 million monthly users around the world, including 100 million in the US alone.

  • CNN 10 contributor Chris James has more Tik TAKS Future is uncertain and I have urged the ticktock be closed down in America.

  • The video sharing app on the Chinese company that introduced it to the world are in President Trump's crosshairs.

  • We want no security problems with China.

  • It's got to be an American company is gonna be American security.

  • It's gotta be owned here on many other politicians and experts agree that the data Ticktock collects on its American users is unsafe in the hands of its Chinese parent company.

  • By dance, it is owned by a Chinese company that includes Chinese Communist Party members in leadership, and it is required under Chinese law to share user data with Beijing.

  • But are these security concerns a real threat?

  • Essentially, the concern boils down to Do you want an app installed on your phone?

  • If you believe that that app might ultimately be influenced by a foreign government that is directly competing with the U.

  • S.

  • Economic Tick Tock has been downloaded over two billion times across the world for years.

  • It's been beloved by teens, but the Cove in 19 Pandemic has helped the APP find new older audiences as well.

  • It's really designed for Vier ality, not for a network of acquaintances.

  • Like any other social media, app, collects a certain amount of data on its users.

  • So the same way that Facebook ultimately has to answer to the U.

  • S.

  • Government Congress, for example, can demand that Mark Zuckerberg testify.

  • The same applies in China, except with one major difference.

  • China is a far less free country and this far less protection of people's rights and people's personal information from the government.
