SEE IT! Cruz Offers Thoughts on ‘Major Legislation’ Against TikTok

A Repub­li­can sen­a­tor spoke out against Chi­nese influ­ence on a major social media plat­form.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R‑TX) hailed House Repub­li­cans for pass­ing a pro­vi­sion seek­ing to force TikTok’s infa­mous par­ent com­pa­ny, ByteDance, to divest its social media plat­form own­er­ship.
Speak­ing on Fox News’s Sun­day Morn­ing Futures, host­ed by Maria Bar­tiro­mo, Cruz called the bill “very impor­tant” and “a major step for­ward” to pro­tect Amer­i­cans from Chi­nese pro­pa­gan­da and poten­tial espi­onage. 
“I have deep, deep con­cerns about Tik­Tok, con­trolled by the Chi­nese com­mu­nist gov­ern­ment,” Cruz told Bar­tiro­mo, voic­ing his sup­port for the Tik­Tok ulti­ma­tum bill. 
The Texas sen­a­tor accused the Chi­nese com­mu­nist gov­ern­ment of exploit­ing Tik­Tok for the “sur­veil­lance and espi­onage of Amer­i­can cit­i­zens.” 
Expand­ing on his con­cerns, Cruz added: “They use it right now, aggres­sive­ly, to push pro­pa­gan­da, anti-Amer­i­ca pro­pa­gan­da, to our young peo­ple.”
