Rep. Jim Banks: China owned TikTok needs to be investigated

TikTok, the world's fastest-growing social media platform, is a seemingly innocent video creation app, but most users are unaware that it is owned by the Chinese government and can be used to harvest user data. Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN, and other members of Congress are calling on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to determine what, if any, threat TikTok and apps like it pose to national security.
