TikTok Finally Sues The Trump Administration Over The Executive Order That Bans Them

It’s official. TikTok is suing the Trump administration over their attempt to ban the Chinese owned social media app. The press release announcing the filing said this among other things:

The Executive Order issued by the Administration on August 6, 2020 has the potential to strip the rights of that community without any evidence to justify such an extreme action, and without any due process. We strongly disagree with the Administration’s position that TikTok is a national security threat and we have articulated these objections previously.

Now is the time for us to act. We do not take suing the government lightly, however we feel we have no choice but to take action to protect our rights, and the rights of our community and employees.  

So now with the WeChat lawsuit from earlier today, the Trump administration now has a two front problem. Like I said in that story about WeChat, Trump will lose badly.

Let the games begin.
