The United States House of Representatives has passed a bill aimed at banning TikTok due to national security concerns, relating to the app’s Chinese ownership by ByteDance. The bill received bipartisan support, with a vote of 352 in favor and 65 against, and now awaits a decision in the Senate. President Biden has expressed his willingness to sign the bill into law if it passes. The legislation requires ByteDance to divest its US assets within six months or face a ban on the app. This move has raised concerns about freedom of speech and the potential impact on the US economy and small businesses. TikTok, with an estimated 170 million users in the US, faces an uncertain future as discussions continue in the Senate, with both supporters and critics voicing their perspectives​​​​​​.
