Rand Paul riles his GOP colleagues again — this time over TikTok

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has once again stirred up controversy among his fellow Republicans, this time over the popular social media app TikTok. Paul has been a vocal critic of the app, which is owned by Chinese company ByteDance, citing concerns over data privacy and national security.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Paul called for a ban on TikTok, stating that “we shouldn’t be allowing China to collect data on American citizens.” He also criticized his colleagues for not taking a stronger stance on the issue, saying that “Republicans are supposed to be the party of national security, but we seem to be asleep at the wheel when it comes to TikTok.”

Paul’s comments have drawn criticism from some of his fellow Republicans, who argue that a ban on TikTok would be an overreaction. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, for example, has called for increased regulation of the app rather than an outright ban.

Despite the controversy, Paul’s stance on TikTok is not surprising given his history of advocating for privacy and limited government. In 2013, he famously filibustered for nearly 13 hours to protest the Obama administration’s use of drones for targeted killings.

Whether or not Paul’s call for a TikTok ban gains traction remains to be seen, but it is clear that the issue of data privacy and national security will continue to be a hot topic in the coming months and years. As more and more of our lives are lived online, it is important that we remain vigilant about protecting our personal information and ensuring that our government is doing everything it can to keep us safe.
