Company insiders have revealed that the Chinese parent company of the app TikTok can covertly access user data, alleging the boundaries between the two companies were “so blurry as to be almost non-existent,” in a CNBC report. The bombshell report – which validates the Trump administration’s efforts to ban the app in the U.S. – comes just after the Biden White House decided to allow TikTok to continue operations, and even welcomed TikTokers into the White House for a “briefing.” A “recruiter, along with four other former employees, told CNBC they’re concerned about the popular social media app’s Chinese parent
TikTok’s Global Operations Manager, Tamer Tang, is a former diplomat for the Chinese Communist Party, serving at the Chinese Embassy in Egypt and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
Journalist Ezra Klein – who's been exposed by the National Pulse for accepting trips from Chinese Communist Party-linked groups in exchange for "favorable coverage" of the regime – asserted it "is not even the worst thing" for China to use TikTok to make Americans "like China more."
TikTok’s parent company ByteDance has used testimony from former Chinese Communist Party diplomats as promotional materials to entice individuals to work at the company. The revolving door between the Chinese government and Bytedance is additional evidence that the company’s app TikTok is compromised by the Chinese Communist Party. Jian Porto, who has worked at Bytedance since 2016, served as a Chinese Communist Party official for six years before he joined the company.

Members of President Biden’s newly launched Counter Extremism Working Group include individuals who’ve advocated on behalf of Chinese Communist Party-linked companies and far-left Twitter trolls.

Despite the founder and CEO
TikTok’s new CEO is a former executive at a Chinese military-linked tech firm blacklisted by the Trump administration. Shouzi Chew previously held the title of Chief Financial Officer at ByteDance – TikTok’s parent company that pledges to “promote socialist core values” – before earning the recent promotion. Prior to working for ByteDance, he served as the Chief Financial Officer of Xiaomi, a smartphone giant blacklisted over its ties to the People’s Liberation Army. The designation was in response to the company’s involvement in the Chinese Communist Party to topple U.S. technological supremacy and its CEO receiving the “Outstanding Builder of
TikTok – a short video app compromised by the Chinese Communist Party – is teeming with videos advising illegal aliens on how to stay in the U.S. and avoid deportation. TikTok, whose founder has pledged to use the app to “promote socialist core values” and routes data through China-based servers, is hosting videos amassing millions of views targeting illegal aliens. As a report from the outlet Mother Jones notes, “many of the advertisements seem to target undocumented Latin American immigrants with strong ties to the United States and few to no existing options for obtaining legal status.” In other words,
