FCC Commissioner Asks U.S. to Ban TikTok
In an attempt to protect the data of common American citizens, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Brendan Carr has urged the U.S. government to ban the short-form video platform app, TikTok across the country.
In an interview, Carr said, “I don’t believe there is a path forward for anything other than a ban,” He further added, “a world in which you could come up with sufficient protection on the data that you could have sufficient confidence that it’s not finding its way back into the hands of the CCP.”
TikTok is in a legal battle with the U.S. Council on Foreign Investment (CFIUS) to determine whether TikTok in the U.S. should operate without interference from ByteDance.
Following the allegations, TikTok spokesperson responded to the query and said, “Commissioner Carr has no role in the confidential discussions with the U.S. government related to TikTok and appears to be expressing views independent of his role as an FCC commissioner.” It further added, “We are confident that we are on a path to reaching an agreement with the U.S. Government that will satisfy all reasonable national security concerns.”
