President Biden Officially Signs Off On Bill To Ban TikTok

The Senate has approved the TikTok ban bill that was approved by the House in March of this year. President Biden swiftly signed off on it, as promised, making it law. The law gives TikTok’s Chinese parent company, ByteDance, 9 months to sell the social media giant to an approved buyer. If ByteDance refuses or cannot fulfill this request, it will be banned in the United States. This “ban” bill came as part of a $95 billion aid package to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew has vowed to expend all resources available in United States courts to fight this decision. Such a court battle would challenge the US Constitution itself and take years. By the time an extensive court battle is completed, TikTok may be impossible to ban due to the social and business ties it would have solidified in the United States and worldwide.
