U.S. Legislators Push for TikTok Ban

By Movieguide® Staff

Legislators at Capitol Hill plan to propose two bills that would ban the popular social media app TikTok from government devices.

With over 1 billion users, TikTok is the most popular social media platform in the world. However, U.S. legislators are worried that the Chinese-owned company is a threat to national security.

“We understand that the Chinese government is using this app to collect data from our citizens here in this country,” South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem told CBN. “They can even access personal information from financial institutions. It’s a cyber security threat we need to take action against.”

“In fact if a state employee or someone who contracts with the state does download the app of tick tock or access it that it’ll be a criminal offense,” she added.

However, some lawmaker’s think that a nationwide ban is the best way forward.

“How much do you think it’s appropriate that the Chinese Communist government should know everything about your movement your information anything they want about you?” Florida Sen. Rick Scott (R) said. “We’ve got to wake up. I mean Chinese drones or TikTok or buying any Chinese product… I mean the government of China has decided to be our adversary, they’ve decided to build a military to defeat us.”

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) added: “Companies under the control of the Chinese Communist Party should not have access, unfettered access, to the private data of millions and millions of Americans that they can then use against us for Espionage for foreign policy, for division.”
