TikTok must be ousted. TikTok threatened legal action Friday in light of President Trump issuing an executive order creating uncertainties about the future of the popular Chinese-owned social media app. Reacting to the order banning Americans from doing business with ByteDance, the Beijing-based company behind the app, TikTok said it was considering suing the Trump administration. “We will pursue all remedies available to us in order to ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and our users are treated fairly – if not by the Administration, then by the U.S. courts,” TikTok said in a statement.
Mr. Trump issued the order Thursday requiring Americans to cut ties with ByteDance and its subsidiaries within 45 days and has suggested it sell TikTok to a U.S. company.TikTok said in the statement the next day it was “shocked” he flexed his executive power and accused the Trump administration of acting without due process or adherence to the law.
