White House Reverses Course, Gives Congress Green Light to Pass Bill Banning TikTok
The White House has reversed direction this week, saying it would now support a Senate bill
-- RESTRICT Act -- that would outlaw TikTok in the United States. The Biden administration had been at a standstill for two years over how to deal with the threat to national security posed by the Chinese-owned mobile app. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Tuesday welcomed a bipartisan bill that would allow the Biden administration to ban the video-sharing app.
