Haley Explodes On Ramaswamy After TikTok Remarks

(RepublicanReport.org) – For a while now, TikTok has been a major concern for the US and state governments all over the country. One reason for the worry is that the social media app originates from China, and there is a permeating belief that the rival country could and does access US citizens’ data whenever it pleases. Some states and offices in the federal government have gone so far as to ban the app’s use on official devices or while at work altogether.

On September 27, many GOP presidential candidates attended their second primary debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. During the discussion, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley got so upset with Vivek Ramaswamy that she said, “Every time I hear you, I feel a little bit dumber for what you say.” The candidate was angry because Ramaswamy can’t seem to make up his mind about TikTok, and she believes the app is very “dangerous.”

Just days after the businessman called the social media app “digital fentanyl” and a threat, he jumped on the platform to reach young voters. But about a week earlier, he said he worried about how the app affects young people, stating that he can’t “stop TikTok’s danger” unless he becomes president. He was not well received on the social media site, with many trolling his account. It’s unclear if he will remain on TikTok throughout his campaign.

On the stage during the debate, he was explaining his reasoning for joining the platform when Haley exploded. She said that half of America is on TikTok, and she’s concerned that it can access people’s contacts, financial information, emails, and text messages. She said US citizens can’t trust Ramaswamy because he’s supporting such a dangerous app. The GOP candidate responded that he believed the Republican candidates shouldn’t personally attack one another.
