( – On Monday, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence had warned that he believed former president Donald Trump had been right when he had spoken about the national security risks connected to TikTok. 

During the committee meeting focused on worldwide threats Warner had argued that it was “rare” that he would say that Trump had been right about something, but that in reality, Trump had been correct years ago when he had spoken about the security concerns surrounding TikTok when it comes to how they obtain and store user data. He added that on average, there are over 100 million Americans who are currently using TikTok. 

Warner pointed out that the social media video app was being used by many young Americans as a means of getting informed about current affairs and news. He added that through the platform China has the option to funnel propaganda through ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok, which could be a great “national security issue.” 

In 2020 during his presidency, Trump signed an executive order that banned the app in the country. However, the courts had ended up blocking that action. 

During his 2024 presidential campaign, Trump altered his stance saying that many people, especially young kids, were big fans of the platform. This change comes at a time when the House of Representatives has been planning the introduction of a bill to the House floor that would force the owner of TikTok to either sell the company or have the app banned in the United States. 

Warner has stated that he is feeling optimistic about the bill and that he hoped it would pass through the House.
