House lawmakers pass legislation to potentially ban TikTok in the US amid high-stakes vote on foreign aid

The House of Representatives has approved a bill that could lead to a ban on TikTok in the US if its Chinese owner does not sell the popular social media platform. This legislation, linked to a foreign aid package for Ukraine and Israel, has received bipartisan support and is expected to move to the Senate for further consideration. TikTok has vigorously opposed the bill, citing concerns about free speech rights and the economic impact of a potential ban.
