Micheal Beckermann, TikTok’s head of public policy for the Americas, made the remark in a staff memo that also said “at the stage that the bill is signed, we will move to the courts for a legal challenge,” according to Bloomberg.

The bill is an amendment attached to a $95 billion foreign-aid package H.R. 8038which the House passed on Saturday.
