It looks like Biden might see eye to eye on Trump with this issue

Nah they'll still vote for Biden. Heck I could see Biden flip-flopping on this issue if there's a ton of flack.

Biden might not want it on his staffers' phones but I highly doubt he'll support a nationwide ban. Its a massive overreach of power.

Wow, Trump did something right. Too bad for Republicans that it'll get buried in all of the bad news about COVID. Trump will not win unless he addresses the virus effectively, trying to change the subject won't change anything, at most people will praise him, but then their minds will immediately go back to the virus, also let's not forget Trump will probably botch the announcement of this policy by saying something racist about China or Chinese people.

Wtf I love Trump now

No but seriously this is a good move, even if his authority to do so is questionable.

I'm just glad it wasn't a Dem who had to ban it.

So crappy Chinese spyware is banned, and zoomers are motivated to vote against Trump.

I'm a teacher and I had a student ask me if I could do a TikTok with her last year. I told her at the end of the school year, but obviously we left in March. Oh well!

TikTok is politicizing Gen Z and it helped ruin Trump's death rally in Tulsa.
That's why he wants to ban it. If security concerns were the issue, he wouldn't be opposing the Microsoft buyout.

It took 3 1/2 years, but now Trump finally has an actual accomplishment.

Giving the President unilateral power to ban any platform or website he wants without going through Congress is terrible, actually!

Trump has actually done a good thing, so congrats. TikTok is backed by the Chinese regime and should be carefully moderated.

Lol. This is probably a good thing honestly; kids in my school are way too obsessed with TikTok and it's replacing the culture of a community within a school which is sad. TikTok is also pretty much a bunch of junk for the most part from what I've seen, outside a few specific communities.
“Wow listen to me, I am such a sophisticated man of culture!”
“I’m not like the other kids!”

Sorry but I disagree, just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean it is “erasing” teen culture. I would argue it is now a part of it. Besides, you are a few decades early to begin complaining about “kids these days”

Haha, yes, China has devoted billions of dollars into spying on 14-18 year olds dancing around while lip syncing.

The only real concern would be people working in actual national security fields, but even then, there isn’t evidence of TikTok spying, just speculation because “China bad!”

It's more a matter of your personal information being sold, but the same thing happens with Facebook as well and cons have no problem with it.

I mean even if you agree both spying apps are bad, it's undeniable that another country having access to that data is worse than a corporation having access

Schumer eager to lose the youth vote as well.
At least try to articulate a response that shows you're better than Trump on this.

Kinda reminds me of Strom Thurmond trying to understand the concept of a microphone.

A bunch of online Democrats declaring that Trump has done a good thing. After he has sent a crazy tweet where he says he wants to do something he does not have the authority to do.

Man, that's really something...
