US House pass bill to ban TikTok

Boom RadioNG | March 13, 2024

The US House of Representatives have today approved a bill that is set to force TikTok to divest from its Chinese owner or face a total from the United States.

352 lawmakers voted in favour of the proposed law and 65 against this legislation which threatens to be a major setback for the video-sharing app.

The fate of the bill is uncertain in the Senate, where some key figures are apprehensive of making such a drastic move against an app that has 170 million US users.


However, the white house has said President Joe Biden will sign the bill into law, known officially as the “Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act,” if it came to his desk,.

The bill requires TikTok’s parent company ByteDance to sell the app within 180 days or see it barred from the Apple and Google app stores in the United States.

It also gives the president power to designate other applications to be a national security threat if under the control of a country considered adversarial to the US.
