  • Democrats, then-candidate Joe Biden and the intelligence community ridiculed former President Donald Trump for suggesting that TikTok was a national security threat.
  • In recent weeks, however, Democrats finally have admitted what they knew all along: Trump was right about the threat posed by TikTok.
  • “This is not something you would normally hear me say, but Donald Trump was right on TikTok years ago,” said Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman. “If your country uses Huawei, if your kids are on TikTok, if your population uses WeChat as a social media platform, the ability for China to have undue influence is, I think, a much greater challenge and a much more immediate threat than any kind of actual, armed conflict.”
