In latest tech news, TikTok files petition to stop Trump’s ban order


Tech giants, TikTok has filed petition against President Donald Trump’s ban order.

TikTok drags Trump’s administration before a Washington court on Tuesday to stop his order to ban the Chinese-owned app in the United States which was to become effective this week.

Chinese company ByteDance is facing a Thursday deadline to restructure ownership of the app in the United States to meet US security concerns.

In its court petition, TikTok asked for more time, saying it has not received enough feedback on its proposed solution.

The company said in a statement that it had asked the government for a 30-day extension because it was “facing continual new requests and no clarity on whether our proposed solutions would be accepted” but it had not been granted.

It was turning to the court for that reason, it said.

US President Donald Trump signed a set of orders against the video platform this summer.

One required ByteDance to sell its US TikTok operations within 90 days, citing national security concerns.
