Democrat Says 'Trump was Right' When it Comes to Social Media Danger

Linkedin Share

If you spend any amount of time consuming the mainstream media’s dastardly drivel, you are likely to find a never-ending parade of progressives lining up to bash former President Donald Trump.

This has been the case from the very moment that Trump entered the political discussion here in the United States, and it’s not likely to change any time soon – especially now that Trump has officially announced his 2024 candidacy.

But this week, a rare admission by a Democratic Senator suggests that the former Commander in Chief was absolutely right about the dangers of Chinese-owned TikTok.

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., says former President Donald Trump “was right” to go after the China-owned video-sharing app TikTok.

Warner made the comments during an appearance on Fox News Sunday, telling host Shannon Bream that the app represents a major threat to Americans’ privacy. He also warned parents against allowing their children to download the app on their phones.

There was no spinning Warner’s sentiment.

“Well, I think Donald Trump was right. I mean, TikTok is an enormous threat,” Warner told Bream. “So, if you’re a parent, and you’ve got a kid on TikTok, I would be very, very concerned. All of that data that your child is inputting and receiving is being stored somewhere in Beijing.”

There have long been concerns regarding TikTok’s data harvesting practices, but recent revelations appear to suggest that it’s not just the app’s input that is creating problems, but it’s output as well.
