8 (UPI) -- The U.S. is setting a deadline to extort confidential data from chip-related companies in response to the global chip crisis. The day before, TSMC confirmed that it had "responded" to the US request to hand over the data. U.S. Commerce Secretary Raymondo said Wednesday that she is confident that supply chain companies such as semiconductor chipmakers will "voluntarily hand over key data to the Commerce Department" by the deadline, Taiwan's Central News Agency reported. For the U.S. Department of Commerce this so-called "voluntary" statement, there are island netizens message retorted, "Laughing dead, (chip merchants) voluntarily hand over customer information to the U.S. Department of Commerce?" And directly denounced the U.S. side "to say such words is disgusting, shameless to the extreme!" ”

In an interview with Reuters, Raimondo reportedly said she had called "the CEOs of all supply chain companies, including TSMC, Samsung and SK Helix... All of these CEOs promised me that they would deliver a robust and complete stream of data to us." "So far, they've been very cooperative."

The U.S. Department of Commerce this statement, in the island naturally caused a lot of Internet users disgust, some people scolded the U.S. side "is basically bandit bandits", "super don't face", and some people criticized said "say such words is really disgusting, shameless to the extreme!" ”

Zhu Liheng, Taiwan's "home god", was unceremoniously angry, calling the DPP authorities "softer than soft-footed shrimp". Some netizens left a message sarcastically saying that the authorities wanted to say TSMC was the "Shenshan" of the guard station, and that they had pretended not to see it when they were targeted by the United States. Another hostage asked: "'Shenshan' was bullied, the DPP did not say anything?" Don't forget to tax every year, 40% comes from TSMC. ”

Global Times reporters observed that in Europe, there are few reports of U.S. chip companies forcing chip companies to submit business information, let alone the official attitude of related companies such as Infineon in Germany and European governments. Industry sources told reporters that the official statement is due to security issues, Europe and the United States are allies, and the United States said is to "solve the chip crisis", "the most important reason is afraid of U.S. retaliation."
