U.S. House Panel Grants Biden Authority to Ban TikTok

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a bill that gives President Joe Biden the power to ban the popular social media platform, TikTok.

The bill, which was approved by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, would give the president the authority to ban any foreign-owned online platform that poses a threat to national security.

The bill was approved in a bipartisan vote of 25-0, with several Republican members of the committee joining Democrats in supporting the measure.

The bill now moves to the full House for a vote, where it is expected to pass.

If the bill is approved by the House, it will then move to the Senate for consideration.

The bill has been widely supported by both Democrats and Republicans, who have argued that the Chinese-owned app poses a threat to national security due to its potential for data collection and manipulation.

The Trump administration had sought to ban TikTok in the U.S., but the effort was blocked by a federal court.

The Biden administration has not yet taken a stance on the issue, but the bill is seen as a sign that the president may be open to the idea of a ban.

The bill is also seen as a sign that the U.S. government is taking a tougher stance on foreign-owned tech companies, in an effort to protect the country’s national security.
