TikTok Sues Trump Administration In Attempt to Stave Off U.S. Ban – Rolling Stone

TikTok is suing the Trump administration for threatening to ban the popular Chinese video-sharing app in the United States.

The lawsuit concerns an executive order that President Trump signed earlier this month, which prevented the company from conducting “transactions” in the U.S. after September 20th. TikTok argues that it was put together without regarding the rights of ByteDance, its Chinese-owned parent company, and that the administration has not proven the app to be a national security threat because of its roots in China, as Trump has claimed.
