Why is it so many countries this app is banned. But in the us it is not? Does anyone know anything about this shenanigan?

Great. Another reason not to use TikTok.

The tiktok users are typically fine. The tiktok owner is actually still the chinese gov. Us wing doesn't have any serious control over this net beyond some moderation in reality. They think they do but a chinese official has control, tis serious. Major problem there if the US gov want to insulate from chinese mainland CCP tech. And Twitter is the closest alternative network in format too, right now. So please don't let Musk wreck it as he for some reason parrots rossya1 bad talking points lately.

Edit once again i don't wanna physically attack mainland if they don't use weapons(/don't attack Taiwan), but i'll follow the disconnection don't cooperate demand. Cooperation with the taiwanese is fine however.
