Republicans are targeting TikTok because they think it is a threat to national security due to its ties to China. They have tried to ban the app, but it has proven difficult. Some politicians, like Senator Josh Hawley and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, have publicly spoken out against TikTok. However, the app has not been banned by Congress or the Biden administration. At a recent debate, Republican candidates criticized TikTok, with some even pledging to ban the app if elected. One candidate, Vivek Ramaswamy, suggested that Republicans should expand their anti-China stance beyond TikTok. A spokesperson for TikTok suggested that if politicians are concerned about data security, they should focus on a nationwide privacy law. Despite the government’s struggles with TikTok, it is expected to remain a focal point of Republican messaging going into the 2024 elections.
