Senator Mitt Romney on Tiktok: Shut it Down | GZERO World

In response to news of a Chinese spy balloon floating over sensitive national security areas in the United States, Utah Senator Mitt Romney tweeted on Friday morning, “A big Chinese balloon in the sky and millions of Chinese TikTok balloons on our phones. Let’s shut them all down.”

It’s not the first time that the Senator has insisted, in no uncertain terms, that the wildly popular social media app should be banned here in the United States.

In an exclusive GZERO World interview with Ian Bremmer, Romney said, “If there is a capacity of the Chinese Communist Party to be able to spy on American citizens by using TikTok, then we have to prevent it from being used here.”
