President Joe Biden signs into law banning TikTok in the United States

President Joe Biden signs into law banning TikTok in the United States

president of the United States, Joe Biden on Wednesday (24) signed the bill banning TikTok in the United States If owner ByteDance does not dispose of the app within nine months. On Tuesday, the law was already voted on by Congress.

The measure was approved as part of a broader national security package that provides $95 billion in aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, key US allies.

In response to Biden, TikTok CEO Xu Ziqiu said the company hopes to challenge the legislation in court.

“Rest assured, we are not going anywhere,” he said in a video posted moments after Biden signed the bill into law. “The facts and the Constitution are on our side and we hope that we will prevail again.”

The justification given by the project's supporters is that China's relationship with ByteDance could pose risks to the national security of the United States, as the company would be forced to share data with the Chinese government.

In 2020, the company sued the government when then-President Donald Trump issued an executive order banning the app and gave ByteDance 90 days to divest itself of its US assets and any data TikTok collected in the US. A judge suspended the ruling hours before it took effect, and Biden overturned Trump's order when he took office.
