Sasse Statement on TikTok

August 12, 2020

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, an outspoken China hawk and member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts banned TikTok from state devices.

“Governor Ricketts is making the right call here. TikTok is a Chinese Communist Party spy tool — and a cyber security nightmare for America. If we want to protect our data from Chairman Xi’s spies and keep it out of their massive data trove, we need to stay far, far away from TikTok.”
