You may know, the US’s President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that restricts any transaction with the parent company of TikTok i.e. ByteDance. The victim company, then, probably planning to fight against this decision.
NPR reported about this plan and reveals TikTok may sue the US Government the earliest by this Tuesday and as per a directly involved lawsuit, this will be filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of California.
TikTok’s point is the US government didn’t give them a chance to respond which is unconstitutional. Rather, the reason for the ban is also baseless.
As per the source’s voice, “It’s based on pure speculation and conjecture. The order has no findings of fact, just reiterates rhetoric about China that has been kicking around.”
The White House is quite still and declined to comment on this report. Though one spokesperson Judd Deere said, “The Administration is committed to protecting the American people from all cyber related threats to critical infrastructure, public health and safety, and our economic and national security.”
This is not for the first time, in India TikTok is already banned for the same security reasons. Along with this video making app, there are 100+ applications that mostly belong to China.
