Senators push bill to ban TikTok, block foreign tech amid security concerns
TikTok bill shows power of China lobby on Capitol Hill: Brent Bozell
MRC President and founder Brent Bozell discusses whether Biden should ban TikTok after a House panel advanced a bill giving him the authority to do so.
Senators will pitch a bipartisan bill this week that would ban TikTok by blocking foreign-owned technology that poses a national security threat.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Mark Warner, D-Va., appeared on "Fox News Sunday with Shannon Bream," who asked the senator about the panel’s upcoming hearing on worldwide threat assessments and the threats posed by China.
"I think for a long time, the conventional wisdom was, the more you bring China into the world order, the more they’re going to change, and that assumption was just plain wrong," Warner said.
Warner went on to explain the steps Congress has already taken to limit the presence of Chinese technologies in the U.S. and added, "This week, I’ve got a broad bipartisan bill that I’m launching with my friend John Thune, who will be the Republican lead, where we’re going to say, in terms of foreign technology coming into America, we’ve got to have a systemic approach to make sure we can ban or prohibit it when necessary."
