The Wall Street Journal is reporting that younger voters may blame President Joe Biden if the popular social media platform TikTok ends up getting banned per a new law signed by the president:

“The move has led to an outpouring of anger on the platform, where as many as one-third of voters under 30 get their news. Though the legislation is popular overall, some Democrats fear — and Republicans hope — that the law could damage Biden because the minority opposing it is passionate and overlaps with a critical part of his base.

“Biden administration officials and some experts say the Chinese-controlled social-media app with 170 million U.S. users threatens national security because it can gather data on users and control the videos they see through its algorithm. The social network has said it isn’t a threat and would refuse any requests to share U.S. users’ data with the Chinese government.”
