A handful of American lawmakers, including Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, announced bipartisan legislation on Tuesday that would ban China’s social media app TikTok in the U.S.

The move adds pressure on the video-sharing app’s owner, ByteDance, amid fears among some in the U.S. that the app could be used to spy on Americans or censor content.

According to a news release from Rubio’s office, the legislation would block all transactions from any social media company in or under the influence of a “country of concern,” like China and Russia.

“The federal government has yet to take a single meaningful action to protect American users from the threat of TikTok,” the Florida senator released in a statement . “This isn’t about creative videos – this is about an app that is collecting data on tens of millions of American children and adults every day.”
