House Passes Bill Targeting Chinese Influence on TikTok

March 13, 2024

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to pass the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act. The bipartisan vote was 352-65 with one member voting present.

In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement cheering the bill’s passage:

“It is good to see that both parties can still agree on some obviously necessary actions. The influence of social media on our society—and especially our youngest generations—is undeniable at this point. It is insane that we would allow a foreign competitor like the Chinese Communist Party to have such significant control over a platform that shapes the views of so many Americans. Breaking the link between the CCP and powerful apps like TikTok is clearly in our nation’s best interest, and APP applauds the House for taking this important step. We also urge the Senate to take up and pass this bill as soon as possible.”
