TikTok claim they’re going to challenge the Trump administration in court over crackdown

TikTok has said it will challenge in court a Trump administration crackdown on the popular Chinese-owned platform, which Trump accuses of being a national security threat.

Trump signed an executive order on 6th August giving Americans 45 days to stop doing business with TikTok’s Chinese parent company ByteDance.

Tensions have continued to mount between the US and China in recent years, amplifying in the last number of months.

“To ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and users are treated fairly, we have no choice but to challenge the executive order through the judicial system,” TikTok said in a statement.
