Sen. Cruz: Israel, Ukraine Aid, TikTok Ban All 'Good'

By    |   Sunday, 21 April 2024 05:26 PM EDT

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, during a round of Sunday news talk shows, endorsed, for the most part, legislation that would send $60.84 billion to Ukraine, $26.38 billion to Israel, $8.12 billion to Taiwan, as well as a United States ban of TikTok, that could allow the government to censor a much wider scope of information.

Speaking to Fox News on the upcoming Senate voting calendar for the bills, Cruz said "There's a lot of support for the bill in the Senate."

"I think it is quite likely to pass when it comes over on Tuesday. Look, there are elements of this bill that are good; there are elements of the bill that are not so good. The most important elements of the bill — the best parts of the bill are — No. 1, much-needed military aid for Israel."

Speaking a day after the Senate passed the reauthorization of FISA, which leads to warrantless surveillance of Americans, Cruz spoke on the TikTok ban over concerns of Chinese spying.

"There's also, very important in this bill, is the TikTok prohibition," he said. "I have deep, deep concerns about TikTok controlled by the Chinese communist government.

"I think the Chinese communist government can No. 1, use that for surveillance and espionage of American citizens. And, No. 2, use it aggressively to push propaganda — anti-American propaganda — to our young people. This bill is a major step forward in that it forces China to divest from TikTok."
