Senate approves TikTok ban, awaiting Biden’s signature

Congress passed legislation to ban or force a sale of TikTok, aiming to address the app’s alleged national security risks. President Biden is expected to sign the bill into law. The measure would give ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, nine months to sell the app or face a national ban. Lawmakers are concerned about Chinese government access to American data. TikTok is expected to challenge the measure, setting up a legal battle. The bill gained support through bipartisan efforts and was tied to foreign aid legislation to expedite the process. Some lawmakers have expressed concerns about the bill’s potential impact on free speech.
