House Passes Bill Requiring Sale or Ban of TikTok

In a 360 to 58 vote, the United States House of Representatives has passed a $95 billion foreign aid package bill, which includes provisions related to the controversial social media application, TikTok. Specifically, the bill will require that TikTok be sold by ByteDance (its Chinese parent company) within 270 days. Failure to do so will result in a national ban of the popular application. Senate may vote on the bill as soon as next week, and President Biden intends to sign the bill into law if there is enough support in the Senate.
