‘Follow India’s lead’: 25 US Congress members urge President Trump to ban TikTok

New Delhi :16 JULY 2020 Concerning over TikTok’s censorship of user content to advance the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) foreign policy aims, at least 25 US Congressmen and Congresswomen have asked President Donald Trump to take decisive action to protect the American people’s privacy and safety.

In its letter to the US President, the Congressmen noted that India took the extraordinary step of banning several Chinese affiliated mobile apps including TikTok due to national security concerns.  However, the CCP’s systemic campaign to collect and illicitly transmit user data for the Chinese government’s purposes is not unique to Indian consumers, the letter said.
