EUA busca atacar a TikTok con una nueva legislación

By Ninian Carter

March 12, 2024 - Legisladores de EUA siguen presionando en anticipación de una iniciativa
de ley bipartidista que podría obligar al dueño de TikTok ByteDance a
vender la plataforma o a ver que sea prohibida en Estados Unidos.

House Majority Leader and the U.S. Republican representative for Louisiana Steve Scalise, says the House will try to expedite the passing of a bill that aims to force ByteDance, the owners of TikTok, to sell the platform or face it being banned in the United States.

Momentum is growing on Capitol Hill from both political parties to demonstrate a willingness to be tough on China, amid concerns that ByteDance’s relationship with Beijing poses risks to U.S. national security – President Joe Biden says he will sign the bill.

TikTok refutes claims that ByteDance is a Chinese owned company, saying that only 20% is owned by Zhang Yiming – its founder and a Chinese private individual. They say the rest of the company is owned by global investment institutions and employees of ByteDance around the world.
