TikTok challenge Trump’s executive order to ban app

TikTok didn’t say which court plan to use. The company added that it tried to work out a solution to address the US concerns for almost a year.

The short-video giant TikTok plans to file a lawsuit against the Trump management to challenge its executive order banning transactions with the video app in USA. The company said it strongly disappointed with the concerns raised by President Trump as he ordered on Aug 6 to ban the app from US within 45 days. He subsequently gave it a 90 day deadline to stop its US operations.

Why Trump wanted to ban TikTok in US?

The TikTok spokesperson said in a statement that “What we experience instead was a lack of due process as the Administration paid no attention to facts and tried to insert itself into matter between private business”. “To ensure that the rule of law is not breaking and that our company and users are treated fairly, we have no choice to challenge the order through the judicial system.”

President Trump made the order under 1977 law that lets the US president declare a national emergency in response to an “unsual and extraordinary threat,” allowing him to block transactions and grab assets.

TikTok, runes by China-based ByteDance Ltd., has been fielding interest in its operations in the US and handful of other countries. Microsoft Corp has publicly confirmed its interest to but TikTok business in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Other companies, including Oracle Corp. and Twitter Inc., have also emerged as potential bidders.
