TikTok is a purveyor of indoctrinating content that tracks American data and phone activity, and it should be banned across the US. While the Chinese company targets American kids with insidious content, it shows more respectable videos to children within the PRC under orders from the Chinese government. A national US ban must be instituted as soon as possible to protect American interests and defend the country from the propaganda and reach of foreign adversaries.
Banning TikTok is clearly a violation of Americans’ right to expression. Not to mention, TikTok has become an important source of friendship and business partnerships that would’ve been impossible without the app. Taking away TikTok would be taking away Americans' livelihoods.
There’s a 10% chance the US will ban TikTok before 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
