Steube Supports President Trump’s Efforts to Restrict Chinese Communist Party Owned TikTok App
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) today joined colleagues in sending a letter to President Donald Trump encouraging his efforts to restrict TikTok and other social media sites linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from accessing U.S. markets.
“Using apps like TikTok to collect American data and violate our privacy and safety is just another tactic the Chinese Communist Party uses to spy on our citizens,” Steube said. “These types of apps should be investigated, banned, and the CCP leaders responsible should be held accountable.”
In June, India banned several Chinese-affiliated apps, including TikTok. In December of 2019, the United States Army banned soldiers from using TikTok since it was considered a security threat by the Department of Defense.
