Senator Rand Paul Become The Latest Senator Who Is Against TikTok Ban

United States Senator Rand Paul has become the latest lawmaker to go against the ban of the Chinese app TikTok, which has more than 150 million users. The reasons for the call were stated to be free speech and uneven treatment on social media.

The lawmaker agreed that all accusations of the app stealing people’s identities can be attributed to a domestic tech company.

Another Republican Senator, Josh Hawley, was however in support of the ban, claiming it was going to be proof that the communist Chinese people couldn’t buy the Americans.

Hawley continued with the claim that TikTok is spying on American citizens and monitoring their movements.

In addition, Paul claimed that if the Republicans want to continue losing elections, they should put a ban on TikTok, which is popularly used by 150 million Americans. most especially the Nigerian youth.

House Speaker Kevin McCharthy said last week that he expected the house to take the necessary steps toward TikTok, but the timing was unclear. The lawmaker has not made clear what the final judgment on TikTok will be.

A small number of Democrats and Republicans are concerned about the allegation that TikTok is a spying app. TikTok Chief Executive Shou Zi Chew appeared in Congress to face a lot of queries about the app.
