White House Backs Bill to Allow Total TikTok Ban | China In Focus
#TikTok is feeling the heat. Over half of U.S. states have already banned the app on government devices. But what about a total ban? #Washington seems to be moving in that direction, with the White House saying it's backing a Senate bill that aims to do just that—and it's not confined to TikTok. It would cover foreign-based tech that poses a national security threat. India has banned TikTok since 2020, with a smattering of countries following suit. This latest push comes amid growing concerns about data collection and the health and well-being of children.
