TikTok, the massively popular social media app, has come under fire because it is owned by a company headquartered in Beijing.

Defenders observe that TikTok is an enormous speech platform and that the U.S. should not be in the business of banning speech apps. When might economic sanctions run afoul of the First Amendment?
