TikTok poses 'legitimate national security concerns': Treasury Secretary Yellen
TikTok should be banned in America: FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr
FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr explains why TikTok is a ‘serious national security threat’ on ‘Varney & Co.’
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday warned that the Chinese-owned video-sharing app TikTok poses "legitimate national security concerns" to the United States.
TikTok is owned by ByteDance, a company based in Beijing. U.S. officials and lawmakers have warned that the Chinese Communist Party could compel the company to turn over American users’ data or expose them to propaganda.
TikTok and ByteDance are currently under investigation by the Treasury Department's Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS), which evaluates national security risks associated with foreign-owned companies operating in the U.S. or foreign investments in American companies.
