Secure Freedom Minute: Ban TikTok, The CCP’s Social Media Fentanyl


This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

There’s a Chinese Communist product that is as addictive as its fentanyl, and potentially far more deadly. The CCP’s TikTok app has deeply penetrated the youth culture here. And, according to, among others, a member of the Federal Communications Commission, it’s a threat to the national security.

The idea that a platform for sharing silly dance videos could be so dangerous is unimaginable to most of the kids hooked on it. Yet, the Chinese Communists’ ability to exploit immense amounts of personal data about its users puts them at risk of manipulation, compromise or worse.

Incredibly, the U.S. military has decided to use the TikTok app to help address its serious recruiting shortfalls. What could possibly go wrong?

The Chinese Communists would never allow us to operate a comparable app in their country. And we shouldn’t let them do it here.
