USA Senator Josh Hawley wants to ban TikTok nationwide

Tiktok is that social media app that is giving USA lawmakers some troubles. Some think it violates the privacy of the American people while others just don’t like because it’s an international product.  Either way, one Lawmaker is working on banning TikTok worldwide by introducing a bill, his name is Josh Hawley, he is the Unite States senator of Missouri City.


"TikTok is China's backdoor into Americans' lives. It threatens our children's privacy as well as their mental health," he said on Twitter. "Now I will introduce legislation to ban it nationwide."


TikTok said in a statement that Hawley was taking the wrong approach.


"Senator Hawley's call for a total ban of TikTok takes a piecemeal approach to national security and a piecemeal approach to broad industry issues like data security, privacy and online harms," said spokeswoman Brooke Oberwetter. "We hope that he will focus his energies on efforts to address those issues holistically, rather than pretending that banning a single service would solve any of the problems he's concerned about or make Americans any safer."

If TikTok is banned in the United States, a lot of people will be out of work, however, it's also good to be sure that the American people are safe.
