In early 2021, American Senator Marco & Middot; Marco Rubio and National Security Consultant Jack & Middot; Jake Sullivan had a conversation around China and industrial policies.

During the conversation, Rubio mentioned a topic: short video product Tiktok threatened US national security. After the meeting, Rubio told the media, "Safety consultant Sha Liven also had the same concerns about TIKTOK."

Not only Rubio and Shalvin, members of the United States Congress and government personnel have discussed many private discussions, and their focus is around China and China. After reviewing other Chinese companies, US regulators and government personnel have been weighing how to deal with Tiktok.

These private conversations show that concerns about Tiktok have been brewing. Although Tiktok is no longer a political hot topic after Trump steps down, politicians are generally dissatisfied with Biden's investigation of TIKTOK without progress.

This emotion has intensified this year.

On June 17, the technology media BUZZFEED reported that Tiktok may have the problem of transmitting American user data in China, and then caused a large number of media such as the Wall Street Journal and Fox News. For a time, "Tiktok threatened US national security" Enter the public vision.

Through this report, Senator Rubio and Chairman of the American Intelligence Commission Mark & Middot; Mark Warner put pressure on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate the bytes of Tiktok and its parent company. The two also called on the Trade Commission to cooperate with the Ministry of Justice to launch an investigation. Another Republican Brendan & Middot; Brendan Carr asked Apple and Google to remove Tiktok from the app store.

Last Tuesday, according to the New York Times, the House of Representatives issued severe warnings that members of Congress could not use Tiktok.

Although politicians kept their voice, the White House had never responded.

"The federal government has not put Tiktok's problem in the priority position, which makes me feel very unfortunate. I hope that with the emergence of new evidence, the government can give more attention." Rubio said.

TIKTOK is becoming more and more popular, and the two parties have become more and more reviewed. According to the latest report of Pew Research Center, 67%of young people from 13 to 17 years old in the United States use Tiktok. Want to play "Chinese cards" to attract votes and unwilling to give up the camp of young people. Politicians began to chase Tiktok. This also made Tiktok's most intense joint resistance in the United States after 2020.

Facing the difficulties of American politicians, Tiktok counterattacked. CEO Zhou's funding publicly described a series of measures for TIKTOK to protect user data, and said that TIKTOK American user data was all stored on Oracle Cloud Server. Politicians' so -called data leaks do not exist.

Another senior executive Michael Beckerman said in an interview with CNN that Tiktok's collection of data from other social applications such as Facebook is "very small". At the same time, he mentioned that TIKTOK will complete the work of American user data storage of the American user data this year, and will delete backup data from Singapore and Virginia.

Although the official statement from Tiktok, politicians did not buy it, they insisted that "tiktok is lying."

Republican Senator Martha & Middot; Marsha Blackburn pointed out that at the 2021 Congress hearing, Tiktok did not explain its relationship with China.

Caldhddot; Karl, who called on Tiktok; Karl said that it was completely appropriate for Tiktok. After he wrote to Apple and Google, a senior executive of Google wrote that Google was paying close attention to the situation and "waiting for the Congress and the Federal Trade Commission to review Tiktok."

For foreign applications, the US Department of Commerce also has the right to review it. However, the review of the Ministry of Commerce is also very slow.

Albright Stonebridge Group, senior vice president of Chinese affairs, Paul Triolo, said: "Some departments of the US government are very frustrated by the lack of Tiktok's lack of progress."

At present, no matter how Tiktok does, Washington's suspicion of it cannot dissipate. When the U.S. House of Representatives warned the members of the members, they said something meaningful: "Tiktok is a Chinese company, and anyone should think of this when anyone uses it."
