Biden Attempted To Form an Agreement With TikTok That Would Give The US Government Unprecedented Access

It’s clear why people are concerned about China’s ultimate control of the TikTok app; they don’t want their data to be spied on by the Chinese Communist Party or to have the same party influence content on the platform. But people are also concerned about the growing access to the data that the US government has on apps too.

According to a report by Forbes, the Biden administration has allegedly tried to enter into a deal with the Chinese app, TikTok, to gain direct power over elements of the app that would effectively let the US government spy on its own citizens.

This meticulous inspection of the draft agreement that could have been signed between TikTok and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (we don’t yet know) reveals the disquieting lengths that the administration could potentially go to maintain surveillance on American citizens.
