Rand Paul: Proposed TikTok ban ‘makes no sense’


A vote on the proposed TikTok ban is anticipated on the House floor on Wednesday, but Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) declared on Tuesday that it “makes no sense.” In a NewsNation interview with “ExpertSadar,” Paul contended that a prohibition on TikTok would be comparable to actions taken by the Chinese government, which he claimed is the exact threat that the ban is meant to protect Americans from.

“In China, TikTok is prohibited,” Paul remarked. “We’re thinking, or those who want a ban, that by adopting a Chinese authoritarian mindset and outlawing it domestically, we’ll truly fight the Chinese communists. In China, TikTok is not allowed. So, by outlawing it domestically, we intend to follow in the footsteps of the Chinese communists?

“It makes no sense whatsoever,” he added.

Paul further stated that a ban of this kind would be stealing property away from Americans without first establishing criminality, since some Americans own stock in Byte Dance, the parent company of TikTok, which is situated in China. He noted that it takes proof of a crime to seize property from Americans, saying, “We know that the Chinese government does demand things, but we don’t know that any information really is going from TikTok to any of these people in China.”

Not all legislators share this view of the proposed ban. A bill that would allow Byte Dance 165 days from the day. It is enacted to divest TikTok or risk being banned from US app stores and web hosting services. Is scheduled for a vote in the House on Wednesday. The bill is being introduced by House Republicans under a special rule that. Unlike most House legislation, calls for a two-thirds majority to be passed.

The bill’s primary co-sponsor and chair of the House. Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.). Stated on Tuesday that he is certain it would succeed because it has a “strong bipartisan core.” He pointed out that, in an unusual unanimous vote last Thursday. The House Energy and Commerce Committee had advanced the proposal.
