Bill to ban TikTok nationwide is being sent to Senate: “TikTok threatens Americans' privacy and harms children's mental health”

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Tuesday announced he would introduce a bill to implement a nationwide ban the social media app #TikTok... 
"[TikTok] is #China's backdoor into Americans' lives. It threatens our children's privacy as well as their mental health," Hawley tweeted Tuesday morning. "Last month Congress banned it on all government devices. Now I will introduce legislation to ban it nationwide."

Hawley, a longtime critic of TikTok, which is owned by the Chinese company #ByteDance, has previously accused the app of posing a "major security risk" to the United States. He was the chief author of the No TikTok on Government Devices Act, which was enacted last year and prohibits the use of TikTok on government-issued devices.

A standalone version of Hawley's bill to ban TikTok on government devices passed the Senate with bipartisan support in December following revelations from FBI Director Christopher Wray that Chinese officials are able to "manipulate content, and if they want to, to use if for influence operations."
