TikTok’s Trump problem is now TikTok’s Biden problem
Biden reversed Trump’s executive order banning TikTok, but he’s still pursuing a broader crackdown on Chinese tech.
(Trump’s order never actually went into effect because US courts struck it down.).
So far, there has been no public evidence supporting such claims about data sharing.
And aside from the now-reversed Trump-era ban, the US government is still pursuing a separate review of TikTok by a powerful government agency that reviews foreign acquisitions of US companies, called the Committee on Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS).
CFIUS has called for TikTok to divest from its Chinese owner, ByteDance.
Our mission has never been more vital than it is in this moment: to empower through understanding.
