TikTok: A CCP Spy Balloon Inside Your Phone

On Wednesday, I was proud to join 352 of my colleagues in voting for H.R. 7521, the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act. This bill will force Bytedance — a company aligned with the Chinese Communist Party — to sell TikTok or face a ban in the U.S.

As I've said for years now, TikTok seriously jeopardizes our national security and poses an enormous threat to our nation's youth. The application is an inconspicuous form of CCP surveillance, acting as a spy balloon in millions of Americans' phones. TikTok collects detailed data on users’ locations, browsing history, and even keystrokes, which the CCP could then use for blackmail, influence operations, and other nefarious purposes.

I'll continue fighting to protect Americans from CCP espionage and propaganda, and I urge the Senate to pass this bill and send it to President Biden's desk immediately.
