resident Donald Trump signed an executive order banning TikTok in August 2020. Soon after, federal courts halted it and then President Joe Biden revoked the order soon after taking office. Now, two top Democrat senators are admitting that Trump was correct when he warned that Tik Tok is a major national security threat.
During an interview Sunday on Fox News, Virginia Democrat Sen. Mark Warner said that TikTok was an “enormous threat” and admitted that Trump was “right” about the risks posed by the Chinese-owned social medial platform.
Bream asked Warner what concerns he had about TikTok and quoted his prior comments saying “as painful as it is for me to say, if Donald Trump was right and we could’ve taken action then, that’d have been a heckuva lot easier than trying to take action in November of 2022.”
“Did Washington simply not listen because they didn’t like the messenger then and what can we do now?” asked Bream.
“Well, I think Donald Trump was right,” Warner said. “I mean, TikTok is an enormous threat.”
Warner described TikTok as “a massive collector of information,” including from children using the app. “So if you’re a parent and you got a kid on TikTok, I would be very, very concerned,” he said. “All of that data that your child is inputting and receiving is being stored somewhere in Beijing.”
