If the US bans TikTok, China will be getting a taste of its own medicine

·1 min

TikTok is facing a potential ban in the United States, similar to other American social media platforms that have been banned in China. The US House of Representatives passed a bill that could ban TikTok unless its Chinese owner, ByteDance, sells the app to a US-approved entity. Chinese officials have criticized the bill, stating that it goes against fair competition and international trade rules. However, China has long blocked American social media platforms for not following its rules on data collection and content. The fate of the TikTok ban now lies with the US Senate.
