Trump Joins TikTok – His First Post Is This Video

After signing up for the contentious TikTok app, President Donald Trump shared his first video from last night’s UFC pay-per-view event, which he shared with UFC President Dana White.

Congress has attempted to outlaw TikTok in recent months in response to concerns about Chinese influence, the platform’s ability to deceive youth, and the spread of anti-Israel propaganda.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to outlaw TikTok earlier this year in a bipartisan manner, as Big League Politics reported:

“On March 13, 2024, the US House enacted a bill that, should its China-based owner fail to transfer the property, will outlaw the well-known video app TikTok.”

National security concerns have been a major driving force behind the demand for a TikTok ban, particularly in light of the platform’s present ownership, which is thought to be linked to the Chinese Communist Party.

The bill received approval by a vote of 352–65. It is currently in the Senate, and it is unclear what will happen to it.

More than 150 million Americans use TikTok. It is a fully owned subsidiary of the Chinese internet startup ByteDance Ltd.

The elected officials contend that ByteDance is closely associated with the Chinese government, which has the right to request access to the data of American TikTok users at any time it desires. The source of concern stems from multiple national security laws in China that require firms to assist in obtaining intelligence.

“We have provided TikTok with an obvious option,” said Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington. She presented TikTok with two options: either continue operating in the United States and distance itself from its parent company, ByteDance, under the control of the Chinese Communist Party or take a stand and face the consequences. It’s TikTok’s decision.

In the event that Congress approves the bill, President Joe Biden has stated that he will sign it into law.

Several Republicans have criticized this prohibition.

Congressman Tom McClintock of California stated, “More authoritarianism is not the solution to authoritarianism.” “CCP-style tyranny is not a solution to CCP-style propaganda.” Before we fall down this extremely steep and slippery hill, let’s slow down.

We refuted claims that TikTok could be a tool for the Chinese Communist Party. The corporation claimed that it has never given Chinese authorities access to user data from American users and would not do so at their request.

Donald Trump, the former president, has voiced his objection to the TikTok ban. On March 11, he stated that, although he still thinks TikTok poses a threat to national security, he is opposed to banning the widely used app because it would benefit Facebook, his opponent, whom he continues to attack for what he claims was its part in his loss in the 2020 election.

It seems that Trump thinks the program will help him win reelection in November. If the platform allows him to express himself freely on TikTok, he will quickly establish himself as a formidable presence.
