Kellyanne Conway Lobbying For Chinese TikTok On Capitol Hill

In a startling twist, former Trump aide Kellyanne Conway now works for Communist China’s insidious TikTok social media app. The platform is widely condemned for continuous data-mining of U.S. users and handing over information to Beijing officials.

TikTok is well known for promoting communist principles, particularly to the young, and espousing cultural Marxism to its followers.

Details of Conway’s efforts were revealed in meetings with the Club for Growth, which was formerly linked to Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. It is also connected to billionaire TikTok investor Jeff Yass.

Conway and Club for Growth confirmed the business partnership with TikTok.

The news is quite the shock for many conservatives who believe the social media app is yet another inroad for Communist China into U.S. life.

Specifically, Conway reportedly is being paid by the conservative Club for Growth to be a TikTok advocate to Congress. She holds considerable sway among Republicans for her stalwart loyalty to Trump, an influence that could be in serious jeopardy.

She is believed to have had at least ten meetings with lawmakers in recent months over the issue of banning TikTok in the U.S. The platform’s egregious practices generated a firestorm of controversy in Congress, with many calling for its outright prohibition.

A vote is expected this week in the House to force the app to be sold by its Chinese owner or to be banned from app stores.

Predictably there was a rush of lobbying from Chinese TikTok to persuade lawmakers to oppose the measure. The platform urged its users to contact Congress with calls demanding a halt to the forced sale or subsequent ban.

Conway is currently a GOP pollster and corporate consultant. She released a statement to POLITICO calling the move to ban TikTok from its 170 million monthly U.S. users “draconian” and “ill-advised.”

She added that those who want to hold China accountable should focus on COVID’s origins, the Chinese suppliers of fentanyl precursor chemicals, and China’s persecution of Uyghurs and relationship with Taiwan.

As for Yass, he owns a 15% share of ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company which is based in Beijing. He is also a Club for Growth donor, and the organization has criticized efforts by critics to corral the app.
