TIKTOK BLOCK: Noem Signs Executive Order Banning Chinese App on State Devices

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed an Executive Order on Tuesday banning the use of the Chinese social media app TikTok on all state devices.

TikTok is under suspicion of spying for the CCP.

Noem shared news about the ban on Twitter.

“Today, I signed an Executive Order that bans the Chinese social media platform TikTok for state government agencies, employees, and contractors using state devices. South Dakota will have no part in the intelligence gathering operations of the Chinese Communist Party.”

From American Military News:

Noem’s Executive Order comes one day after she announced plans to “thwart [Chinese Communist Party] expansion” by restricting China’s ability to purchase American farmland.

“Food security is national security. We cannot allow China to continue in their quest of buying up American farmland,” Noem tweeted. “In South Dakota, we have implemented restrictions on foreign land ownership, and as Governor, I am looking into how we can further thwart CCP expansion.”
