In March, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to pass a bill giving ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns TikTok, about six months to sell the U.S. assets of the app or face a ban, citing national security concerns. Senators are still undecided on how to proceed.

Biden has said he would sign such a bill if it reached his desk.
