Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) spoke Thursday on the Senate floor about the dangers of the Chinese app TikTok to American citizens' privacy and national security. "[TikTok's parent company] ByteDance, as a Chinese company, is obligated to collaborate with Chinese intelligence services, including by sharing data. In fact, all of the data that TikTok and ByteDance collect ... can be routed at a moment's notice to the Chinese Communist Party," he said.
