Joe Biden Will Sign Laws That Force TikTok to Leave Parent Company ByteDance

Liputan6.com, Jakarta – TikTok's future looks increasingly uncertain as support grows for new legislation that would force the company to leave parent ByteDance or face a ban from the United States.

Now, US President Joe Biden has supported the ban bill one day after clearing its first legislative hurdle in the US House of Representatives.

“If the bill passes, I will sign it,” he was quoted as saying by CBS News EngadgetMonday (11/3/2024).

A bill called the “Protecting Americans from Apps Controlled by Foreign Adversaries Act,” introduced earlier this week, would give TikTok six months to divest from parent company ByteDance or face a ban from circulating in Uncle Sam's App Store.

Meanwhile, Republicans in the US House of Representatives could bring the bill to a vote as early as Wednesday.

TikTok says the bill is a thinly veiled attempt to force a “total ban” on its app.

“This legislation has a predetermined outcome, namely a total ban on United States TikTok,” TikTok representatives said in a statement earlier this week.

“The government is attempting to strip 170 million Americans of their constitutional right to freedom of expression. “This will damage millions of businesses, prevent users from voicing their voices, and destroy the livelihoods of countless creators across the country,” TikTok said.
