Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Kristi Noem Bans TikTok Use On South Dakota State Devices”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Republican Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota issued an executive order banning the use of TikTok on Tuesday, according to a state press release.

The order prohibits any South Dakota state agency or government employee from downloading or using the TikTok application on a state-issued device, as well as from visiting the TikTok website. Additionally, it extends these prohibitions to any contractor and their personnel doing business with the state. (RELATED: Majority Of Americans Support Banning CCP-Backed TikTok App)

“South Dakota will have no part in the intelligence gathering operations of nations who hate us,” said Noem in the release. “The Chinese Communist Party uses information that it gathers on TikTok to manipulate the American people, and they gather data off the devices that access the platform.”

The order cites TikTok’s Chinese parent company, ByteDance, being subject to the National Security Law of the People’s Republic of China, legislation passed in 2015 that mandates private companies to cede user data to the Chinese government upon request, as the reason for the prohibition. It also notes that bans on TikTok have been issued by all branches of the U.S. military and the Transportation Security Administration, while a general prohibition on TikTok across the federal government has been endorsed by the Federal Communications Commission and “a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators.”

We will have no part in intelligence gathering for China, a nation that hates America. I hope other states quickly follow this example and protect the vital private information of our citizens. pic.twitter.com/rJ2H2k0Rlk
