No I think its the US Govement who need to decide if they want international companies or only domestic.

They cant force US law into all other countries around the world.

If they want international companies, US Goverment can't make laws that forces their international companies to break other countries laws.

The only way to prevent it if Microsoft sell all holdings in their foregn compainies and cease all business in all countries outside the ISA.

This affects all multinationals. They have to sell and go purely national to not be cought in this madness where in every country a judge can demand every data from any subsidary in another country.
