  • The US Senate has passed the TikTok sale-or-ban bill, which is now being sent to the US President for his signature.
  • The President has indicated his assent to the bill.
  • Once signed, TikTok’s parent company will have nine months to sell TikTok or face a ban in the US.

TikTok is about to get banned in the US rather imminently, and the final nails in its coffin are about to be put in. The US Senate has passed a foreign aid package that includes a bill that would force TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, to sell TikTok within nine months. There is a provision for a three-month extension, but if the sale does not materialize, it would get banned in the US.

The bill now passes to US President Joe Biden for his signature, who has made it clear through an official statement that he will sign the foreign aid package into law very soon.
