Sen. Josh Hawley is escalating his war on China as the Missouri Republican aims to protect Americans’ communication from being exported to the communist country.
Hawley is seeking to block companies from China and Russia from transferring Americans’ data back to their countries. The National Security and Personal Data Act is designed to prevent countries that represent a national security threat to the U.S. from collecting data that is not pertinent to their business.
“It shouldn’t be that you can’t have fun on an app anymore without it collecting your entire personal profile and shipping it off to a hostile nation-state, who will do who knows what with it,” Hawley said in an interview with The Washington Post on Monday. He said the bill will likely fundamentally change how companies like TikTok interact with China.
Hawley added: “It would certainly prevent them from doing business on Beijing’s terms.” (RELATED: Conservatives React After Sen. Hawley Proposes Bill Cracking Down On Big Tech Companies)
