“All our social media platforms need to be treated equally.

And targeting TikTok in this way we believe is dangerous and certainly against freedom of expression." Thus Congressman Robert Garcia of California to protest the bill presented last week by US lawmakers that would give TikTok's Chinese owner , Byte Dance, about six months to divest the app used by 170 million Americans. 

There are other members who speak up to fight the bill.
