FCC's Brandon Carr to Newsmax TV: US Should Review Huawei, TikTok

By    |   Friday, 01 May 2020 02:48 AM

FCC Commissioner Brandon Carr said the U.S. government should take advice from actress Gwyneth Paltrow and practice a “conscious decoupling” from Huawei.

Carr told Sean Spicer on Newsmax TV's "Spicer & Co." that Huawei and popular mobile phone app TikTok pose security threats to the U.S. because of their ties to China. 

“We have now prohibited subsidized Huawei gear from going into the U.S. network based on national security concerns,” Carr said Thursday. “Everything that we value in this country today and tomorrow is traveling over these networks, financial information, healthcare information, national security information. If those networks are threatened every single thing we value is threatened.” 

Carr said all social media platforms poses some type of security threat and pull “a lot more data than most Americans are aware of.”

But, he said TikTok in particular is raising additional concerns because of its ties to a Beijing-based entity. Carr said the China ties are leading to a bipartisan push from lawmakers to look into TikTok. 

Foreign affairs expert and Asia analyst Gordon Chang said Beijing wants to grab the world’s information. 

"You have China's 2017 national intelligence law which requires every Chinese entity to spy if requested,” he said. "Also, in the Communist Party's top-down system, no company can resist the Communist Party's demands. Beijing wants to grab the world's information because it wants to know about stuff; it wants to feed its artificial intelligence networks; and, eventually, it would like to manipulate the worlds devices which will be connected to this 5G fifth generation networks.”

China wants to "open your front door, drive your car off the cliff, or turn off your pacemaker," Chang added. "This has implications across the board and we just have to protect ourselves.”
