GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy joins TikTok even as he calls it 'digital fentanyl'

  • Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy has become the first 2024 presidential candidate to join TikTok, despite accusing Beijing of using the app as a spy mechanism for China and calling for a complete ban of the app. Ramaswamy's campaign defended the decision by stating the importance of reaching the younger audiences on TikTok.
  • While several major GOP candidates have expressed their desire to ban TikTok, the app remains popular among younger audiences, with Republicans being slightly less likely than Democrats to have a TikTok account. This highlights the challenge faced by Republican candidates who want to reach these audiences while also voicing concerns about the app's security risks.
  • The debate surrounding TikTok in Washington has resulted in Congress banning the app on government devices and some conservative-led states considering their own bans. President Joe Biden revoked the ban on TikTok but his administration is still considering actions against the app. Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee has an active TikTok account with a significant following.
