GOP Legislators Target TikTok Over Its Ties To CCP

  • Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Mike Gallagher plan to introduce legislation banning TikTok from the U.S. because they view it as a national security threat.
  • They told The Washington Post that TikTok “offers the CCP a unique ability to monitor more than 1 billion users worldwide, including nearly two-thirds of American teenagers. We must ban this potential spyware before it is too late — not encourage its use in the United States, as President Biden is doing,” the congressmen claimed.
  • TikTok’s parent company is ByteDance, which is based in China and has ties to the CCP.
