China might use TikTok to interfere with US elections: US Senators

A group of US Senators expressed their concerns regarding TikTok, asking the Trump administration to assess the threat that the popular Chinese-owned video sharing app might meddle in US elections.

“We are greatly concerned that the Chinese Communist Party could use its control over TikTok to distort or manipulate (political) conversations to sow discord among Americans and to achieve its preferred political outcomes,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and the director of the FBI.

The Department of Homeland Security did not respond to a request.
