If you haven't already, I'd recommend taking a look at this privacy analysis of TikTok. It pretty much put the nail in the coffin that I would never install this app and I warn any of my loved ones about it:

How is this a nail in the coffin? It's standard for any social network and most modern applications. Almost every app (desktop, mobile, or web) sends a massive amount of telemetry back home. Is it right? No. But it's happening everywhere.

 

If you'd like a more detailed, and tutorial-style analysis, I found this useful: blackhillsinfosec.com/lets-talk-ab...

Others have also intercepted the encrypted request parameters: medium.com/@fs0c131y/tiktok-logs-l...

Personally, I think the ban is a smoke screen for political purposes, as @danieljsummers succinctly points out, they're all pretty much as bad as each other, you choose your poison or you stay away from mobile devices pretty much entirely.
