US heading for TikTok app ban

The United States took a significant step on Tuesday towards a ban on the popular TikTok app via a White House-backed bill, amid growing Western distrust of the Chinese social network.

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said in a statement that he “welcomed” a bill tabled the same day that would, among other things, ban apps such as TikTok.

This text, carried by a Democratic senator and a Republican senator, “would allow the American State to prevent certain foreign states from operating technological services (…) in a way that threatens the confidential data of Americans and our national security,” the White House adviser wrote.
