Tester reverses course, suggests Montana shouldn't have banned 'silly' TikTok app after signaling support
Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat who initially supported a ban of TikTok in Montana, reversed course this week after a lawsuit was filed and insisted the state should not have banned the “silly app" earlier this month.
Montana's new law prohibits downloads of TikTok in the state and would fine any "entity" — an app store or TikTok — $10,000 per day for each time someone "is offered the ability" to access the social media platform or download the app. The penalties would not apply to users.

After the measure was signed into law by Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte, Tester suggested during an interview with a local outlet, the Havre Daily News, that TikTok should be held accountable for the "treasonous" things it has done. He also suggested that TikTok CEO Shou Chew's testimony before Congress earlier this year was a "trainwreck."
