President Biden signs law that could ban TikTok in the US but his campaign plans to stay on the app regardless

President Biden signed legislation that could potentially ban TikTok in the US, while his campaign has continued to use the platform for political purposes. The law gives ByteDance, TikTok's Chinese parent company, a year to sell the app to a US company or face a national ban. Despite the ban, the Biden campaign defends its presence on TikTok, citing the platform's influence and necessity in reaching a younger audience. TikTok has vowed to challenge the law in court, arguing that it suppresses free speech and could have detrimental effects on its millions of American users.
