TikTok plans to sue Trump administration by Tuesday

TikTok plans to file a federal lawsuit as soon as Tuesday to challenge President Donald Trump’s executive order banning the video-sharing service from the U.S. as unconstitutional, National Public Radio reported.

The lawsuit are going to be filed within the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, where TikTok’s American operations are based, NPR said, citing an individual conversant in the matter whom it didn’t identify. it’ll argue that the president’s action is unconstitutional because it did not give the corporate an opportunity to reply which the U.S. government’s national-security justification for the order is baseless, according the report.

Chinese-owned TikTok responded during a blog post on Friday it’s “shocked” and can pursue all remedies available, including in U.S. courts. a corporation spokesman reached by phone on Saturday declined to discuss the NPR report and mentioned the sooner blog post.

Trump signed executive orders on Thursday prohibiting U.S. residents and corporations from doing business with TikTok and Tencent Holdings’ WeChat apps, effective in 45 days, citing the national-security risk of leaving Americans’ personal data exposed.

Trump made the order under a 1977 law that lets the U.S. president declare a national emergency in response to an “unusual and extraordinary threat,” allowing him to dam transactions and seize assets.

The president is stepping up his campaign against China, betting that a tough line will help him win November’s election despite upsetting many younger TikTok users
