Tik­tok sues US govt over curbs or­dered by prez

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Comment -

SAN FRAN­CISCO: Tik­tok said on Mon­day it has filed a law­suit chal­leng­ing the US gov­ern­ment’s crack­down on the pop­u­lar Chi­nese-owned video app, which Washington ac­cuses of be­ing a na­tional se­cu­rity threat.

As ten­sions soared be­tween the world’s two big­gest economies, US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump signed an ex­ec­u­tive or­der on Au­gust 6 giv­ing Amer­i­cans 45 days to stop do­ing business with Tik­tok’s Chi­nese par­ent com­pany Bytedance, ef­fec­tively set­ting a dead­line for a sale of the app to a US com­pany.
