The public already doesn’t trust the U.S. government. But their distrust is about to be at an all-time high after this startling fact was revealed.

And the Biden administration is targeting millions of Americans with this stunning action.

The popular social media app, TikTok has been the subject of controversy over the years after concerns came out that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) surveils users of the app.

But after a potential contract between the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) and TikTok was received by Forbes, China wouldn’t be the only country spying on Americans.

“TikTok’s Chinese parent company ByteDance has spent years negotiating a national security agreement with the Biden Administration that would avoid a ban on the short video app in the United States” according to Forbes.

“Were it to be finalized, the agreement would provide the government near unfettered access to internal TikTok information and unprecedented control over essential functions that it does not have over any other major free speech platform.”

If put into action, the contract would have given Joe Biden’s Department of Justice and Defense the ability to search the United States’ headquarters for TikTok without any sort of notice.

This includes files and servers that are located at the headquarters.

The contract would also give auditors from third parties the authority to inspect and examine TikTok’s activities in the United States.

In an effort to save face, TikTok didn’t offer a comment about the potential agreement, but instead released a statement.

“As has been widely reported, we’ve been working with CFIUS for well over a year to implement a national security agreement and have invested significant resources in implementing a firewall to isolate US user data,” said a spokesman from TikTok.

“Today, all new protected US user data is stored in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure in the US with tightly controlled and monitored gateways. We are doing more than any peer company to safeguard US national security interests.”

On a surface level, that statement may provide comfort for some, but it doesn’t stop the overall distrust of the social media app.

According to the Post Millennial, “Over the past year, investigations and whistleblower claims have questioned the effectiveness of TikTok’s data security promises. The DOJ investigated ByteDance after multiple workers were discovered snooping on users and journalists investigating the company.”

And last December, the U.S. Senate banned TikTok from being on the phones of government devices out of concern of spying.

There have even been whistleblowers who believe the Chinese parent company of TikTok, ByteDance are very close to the CCP.

“If this agreement would give the U.S. government the power to dictate what content TikTok can or cannot carry, or how it makes those decisions, that would raise serious concerns about the government’s ability to censor or distort what people are saying or watching on TikTok,” said Patrick Toomey, the National Security Project deputy director for the ACLU.

Government overreach is already a major threat in this country.

And with the Biden Administration negotiating with TikTok to gain more access on American’s personal data, that threat has never been more severe.
