House Republican proposes to put former President Donald Trump on $500 bill

The House Republicans are at it again, turning the political landscape into a circus. This time, they’ve proposed putting former President Donald Trump on a $500 bill.

Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., on Wednesday filed legislation to have the Federal Reserve print a $500 note featuring the 45th president. His bill is called the “Treasury Reserve Unveiling Memorable Portrait (TRUMP) Act.”

“As Bidenflation continues to devalue our currency, the issuance of $500 bills featuring President Trump by the Treasury offers several practical advantages,” Gosar said in a news release.

The last version of a $500 bill featured a portrait of President William McKinley and was printed in 1945. The denomination was discontinued 24 years later, according to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

Historically, U.S. currencies in higher denominations than $100 were used by banking institutions for large money transactions, but by 1969 technology had outpaced the need for large bills. The largest U.S. dollar denomination ever printed was the $100,000 Gold Certificate, which featured a portrait of President Woodrow Wilson, who created the Federal Reserve in 1917.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment

TikTok faces new charges over children privacy

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTD) has decided to throw some fresh charges at TikTok over child privacy issues.

The FTC says its own investigation “uncovered reason to believe” that the firms “are violating or are about to violate the law”.

In a statement to BBC News, a TikTok spokesperson said they were disappointed by the decision.

The case is separate from legislation passed earlier this year to ban TikTok in the US if ByteDance does not sell the business.

The regulator said its investigation focused on potential violations of the FTC Act and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

The FTC also said it does not usually announce that it has referred a complaint to the DOJ but in this instance felt doing so was in the public interest.

COPPA governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by online services about children under 13-years-old.

The FTC Act targets “unfair or deceptive acts or practices” by companies.

In response, a TikTok spokesperson said the company disagreed with the allegations and that it had “been working with the FTC for more than a year to address its concerns.”

“We’re disappointed the agency is pursuing litigation instead of continuing to work with us on a reasonable solution,” they added.

A DOJ spokesperson told BBC News they “cannot comment on the substance of the referral from the FTC against TikTok.”

“Consistent with our normal approach, the Justice Department consulted with FTC in advance of this referral and will continue to do so as we consider the claims,” they added.

The law was introduced to address concerns that TikTok might share user data with Chinese authorities – claims the company has denied.
