On why the U.S. needs to ban TikTok:

“Number one is [TikTok is] scooping up a bunch of data. Your data is on your phone. All that data from your kids and anybody else [who uses your phone], they’re just scooping all of that up, and [if] the Chinese government asks for it, [TikTok has] to turn it over. So [the Chinese Communist Party] know[s] a tremendous amount about Americans in general, about our society, about what messages work. It gives them a huge advantage, not to mention the individual data on people that they can acquire. 
 
“But here’s the second thing that we now know. Chinese state-run media entities are posting things, making them look like news stories on TikTok, and designing it to go after voters. They tried to interfere in this election. They attacked me, and they attacked Governor Abbott and Senator Cruz in Texas.  
 
“These Chinese state-run media outlets, with really small disclaimers on the bottom so you can’t even tell it’s being produced by them, are producing these attack ads against Republicans on TikTok for free and using the algorithms to target people that they know live in those states or care about these issues. They have weaponized that against us now in our election cycle. Forbes had a piece on that not too long ago. 
 
“I think TikTok should have been banned a long time ago. I wish President Trump would have done it. He was close to doing it. It needs to be done now.”
