TikTok asks judge to stop US from blocking app downloads

TikTok asked a US judge to block the Trump administration’s order banning the app’s downloads after September 27.

The company asked the judge to block a Trump administration order that would require Apple and Google to remove the short video-sharing app for new downloads.

TikTok said the restrictions “were not motivated by a genuine national security concern, but rather by political considerations relating to the upcoming general election.”

TikTok said if the order is not blocked “hundreds of millions of Americans who have not yet downloaded TikTok will be shut out of this large and diverse online community – six weeks before a national election.”
