China accuses US of ‘abusing state power’ over TikTok ban

China denounced the US for its TikTok bans and claimed it was “abusing state authority”.

Following cybersecurity concerns, Congress and more US states have banned TIPK from government-issued mobile phones.

Two-thirds American teens use TikTok, but Washington is concerned that China might use its regulatory and legal powers to access private data or push misinformation or narratives in favor of China.

Mao Ning, spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry, stated that the US government was “overstretching national security and using state power to suppress companies from other countries”.


Ms. Ning spoke out about Washington’s insecurity. “How unsure can the US, world’s most powerful superpower be to fear a young man’s favorite app to such an extent?”

TikTok is just one of the many factors that contribute to tensions between these two countries.

Their relations have been strained by trade, computer chips that allegedly steal tech information, national security in Taiwan and the emergence a Chinese spy balloon, which was shot down above the US earlier in the month.

Justin Trudeau, Canadian Prime Minister, stated: “I suspect as government takes significant step in telling all federal workers that they cannot use TikTok from their work phones, many Canadians, business and private alike will reflect on the security their data and make choices.”
