At a glance

  • TikTok investors recently have been pouring money into Democrat coffers as the Biden Administration weighs a deal to allow the China-backed company to maintain its U.S. operations.
  • Former President Trump moved in 2020 to ban TikTok from the U.S. because of concerns it was collecting sensitive data from American users. Those concerns stem from TikTok’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
  • President Biden rescinded Trump’s TikTok ban in 2021, and now the Biden Administration appears ready to allow the company to continue operating in the U.S.
