Donald Trump was ahead of the game in a warning he told the American people.
Now even Democrats have been forced to admit he was right.
The FBI accidently proved how correct Donald Trump was with this one statement.
FBI Director Christopher Wray announced during a Wednesday hearing that the Chinese Communist Party has the ability to take control of “millions” of Americans’ phones through TikTok.
“If you look at the Chinese government’s gobbling up of information and data, and then the use of AI and other tools, ultimately supercomputing, things like that, to marshal all that data to conduct targeting for espionage, targeting for IP theft, targeting for the all the things that I and others on this panel have been calling out about the Chinese government,” Wray told the Senate Intelligence Committee. “Data is the coin of the realm, those who have the best information have the power and that’s what that enables them to do.”
Wray added that China’s Equifax hack had allowed them to gain the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) of nearly half the population of the United States.
“So it’s the control of the data to conduct all sorts of big data operations,” he said. “It’s the control of the recommendation algorithm, which allows them to conduct influence operations. It’s the control of the software, which allows them to then have access to millions of devices. So you put all those three things together, and again, come back to the starting point, which is, this is a tool that is ultimately within the control of the Chinese government and it to me screams out with national security concerns.”
Wray added that China is using TikTok to control narratives in America.
“And I think the most fundamental piece that cuts across every one of those risks and threats that you mentioned that I think Americans need to understand is that something that’s very sacred in our country, that difference between the private sector and the public sector, that’s a line that is non existent in the way that CCP operates,” Wray said.
Former President Donald Trump signed an executive order and attempted to ban TikTok in 2020, but it was blocked in September 2020 by a federal judge and then overturned by President Joe Biden when he took office.
“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters in August 2020.
And Democrats attacked him viciously for taking logical actions to steal Americans data. They were so caught up in attacking Trump that they were willing to ignore the risk of China stealing data and influencing millions of Americans.
Biden owes an apology to the American people for what he did.
