In December 2022, the US Senate introduced a bill that would impose a ban on "all transactions from any social media company in, or under the influence of, China, Russia, and several other foreign countries of concern," over privacy concerns involving the government of China. This would amount to banning TikTok in the US. A second possibility is what the Trump Administration attempted in 2020 and 2021, to force a sale of TikTok US operations to a US company, e.g. Oracle, which did not go through. As of March 2023, TikTok US remains accessible in the US and remains under the control of ByteDance.
