TikTok is suing the Trump administration to prevent a US ban

As reported by Bloomberg on Saturday, TikTok filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration to prevent the United States from imposing a ban. Popular video-sharing app TikTok asked a US judge to block the Trump administration from blocking China's rapidly growing social network.

TikTok and its parent company ByteDance filed a lawsuit in federal court in Washington Friday night, questioning the Trump administration's recent decision to ban the app from operating in the United States.

The lawsuit marks the second time TikTok has sued the Trump administration and challenges the president in court (Donald Trump), leading to fierce geopolitical battles over technology and trade to the US legal system.

The app says: Trump has exceeded his authority and did so for political reasons instead of stopping the unusual threat to the United States as required by law.

The app stated that the ban violated the right to freedom of expression in the First Amendment.

According to the complaint, Trump's actions will destroy the internet community, as millions of Americans gather to speak out.

The app claims that the US government ignored evidence that TikTok is committed to the privacy and security of its US users.

At trial time, Trump had stepped up his campaign against China, betting that despite the anger of millions of young TikTok users, his tough stance on Beijing would help him win the November election.

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has urged US companies to block Chinese apps in app stores as part of "clean web" guidelines in order to prevent Chinese authorities from accessing personal data. American citizens.

Last Friday, the US Department of Commerce banned US citizens from downloading Chinese SMS and TikTok apps as of September 20.

In the lawsuit, Tik Tok said: To address US concerns, he proposed an alternative to the ban, but the president authorized the Commerce Department to destroy TikTok in the United States.

"Litigation that defies national security orders generally faces tough battles. Courts generally do not review decisions by the president in national security cases," said James Dempsey, executive director of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology at the University of California.
