Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Vows to File Lawsuit Over TikTok Ban ‘On Constitutional Grounds’

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent candidate for president, has promised to file a lawsuit challenging the TikTok ban on “constitutional grounds.”

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden signed a bill into law that requires ByteDance, a Chinese-based company, to sell within nine months or face a ban.

“I’m going to file a lawsuit challenging the TikTok ban on Constitutional grounds,” Kennedy wrote on X.

“Don’t be fooled — the TikTok ban is not about China harvesting your data. That’s a smoke screen. Intelligence agencies from lots of countries, especially ours, are harvesting your data from everywhere all the time,” he added.

“TikTok isn’t even majority Chinese-owned, and the company agreed to put its data behind a U.S. firewall. The Biden administration rejected that deal,” he continued.

“Congress and the administration don’t understand that TikTok is an entrepreneurial platform for thousands of American young people. They want to screw them over just so they can pretend to be tough on China,” Kennedy said.

“The TikTok ban is yet another example of how neither political party has any compunctions about sacrificing your freedoms, rights, and choices when it serves their political interests,” the post concluded.

Former President Donald Trump has voiced his opposition to the bill as well, posting on Truth Social, “Just so everyone knows, especially the young people, Crooked Joe Biden is responsible for banning TikTok.”

The Republican candidate asserted that Biden is advocating for the ban to “help his friends over at Facebook become richer and more dominant.”

“He is the one pushing it to close, and doing it to help his friends over at Facebook become richer and more dominant, and able to continue to fight, perhaps illegally, the Republican Party,” Trump added.

Trump also asserted that the TikTok ban is “ELECTION INTERFERENCE.”

“It’s called ELECTION INTERFERENCE!” Trump exclaimed.

“Young people, and lots of others, must remember this on November 5th, ELECTION DAY, when they vote! They also must remember, more importantly, that he is destroying our Country, and is A MAJOR THREAT TO DEMOCRACY!” he added.

ByteDance has consistently stated that they refuse to sell and intend to contest the ban in court.
