TikTok: US ban shows failure to comply with the law

TikTok responded to President Trump's order to block all transactions with its parent company ByteDance on September 20, saying the US ban indicated a violation of the law.

The Chinese company said: After a year, the United States tried to issue an injunction with an order from the executive branch but failed to take appropriate legal measures to assuage US government concerns about its implementation.

TikTok suggested challenging the executive order in a US court.

"We will take all available remedial measures to ensure that we do not abandon the rule of law and treat our company and its employees fairly. If US government agencies or courts are not dealt with, they will be treated fairly," he said.

The app added that the executive order could undermine global companies 'confidence in the United States' commitment to the rule of law.

Trump responded after signing an executive order to address national security concerns about TikTok.

The decree states that apps developed by China (such as TikTok) threaten the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.

President Trump used the International Economic Emergency Law and the National Emergency Law to allow him to issue the order due to extraordinary measures.

Sanctions against individuals and companies, such as being on the "corporate list," are usually imposed by the Department of Commerce, not the White House or the US Foreign Investment Authority and the United States. In the case of ByteDance, these two processes don't seem to be used.

Tik Tok said: The US embargo sets a dangerous precedent for the concept of freedom of expression and market opening.

The app stated that it tried to work constructively with the US government on the issues raised and to provide solutions such as: b. Open their own algorithms and transparent moderation instructions.

TikTok said, "We've made it clear that we have never shared user data with the Chinese government or monitored content at their request."

The app said it had expressed a desire to continue selling all of its US business to an American company. This refers to information that ByteDance is discussing with Microsoft about potential businesses selling the app in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. .

These discussions are expected to end on September 15th, about five days before the decree goes into effect.
