U.S. lawmakers introduce bill to ban TikTok


(CNN) – It looks like three U.S. lawmakers are not fans of TikTok.

Sen. Marco Rubio introduced a bill in the Senate this week that would ban TikTok from operating in the U.S.

Two congressmen have also introduced companion legislation before the House.

The lawmakers are concerned about the short-form video app’s parent company, Bytedance, and its affiliation to China.

Some doubt the company’s ability to safeguard Americans’ data from the Chinese government.

TikTok has not commented on the proposed legislation.
