WASHINGTON, DC (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – Trying to get TikTok to stop allowing U.S. data to flow into China.

That’s what Senator Rob Portman was aiming for in a Homeland Security hearing on Capitol Hill.

TikTok Chief Operating Officer Vanessa Pappas says the company will provide an answer that will satisfy the U.S.

The app is owned by a Chinese company, but it does not operate there.
