Missouri Senator Josh Hawley Sponsors Bill to Ban TikTok in the U.S.

Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri is sponsoring a bill that, if passed, would ban TikTok for all devices in the United States.

Hawley announced Wednesday that he would promote the bill, calling it a “major security and privacy concern for ever American, especially kids.”

The phone-based social media app has drawn criticism due to its ownership being based in China.

Hawley says that the app is capable of accessing information on your cell phone to be accessed by the Chinese government.

Experts believe the bill will be introduced by Colorado Representative Ken Buck in the House of Representatives.
