CHINA/SOCIAL MEDIA: “Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner this week praised former President Donald Trump’s strong stand against TikTok’s ties to communist China.

Warner, D-Va., told an Australian newspaper Tuesday during a visit to the country that TikTok posed privacy and national security concerns to the American public.

‘This is not something you would normally hear me say, but Donald Trump was right on TikTok years ago,’ Warner told The Sidney Morning Herald. ‘If your country uses Huawei, if your kids are on TikTok … the ability for China to have undue influence is a much greater challenge and a much more immediate threat than any kind of actual, armed conflict.'”
