Trump Loses As Judge Suspends US Ban On TikTok

 

According to AFP, a judge late Sunday stopped the US from banning downloads of TikTok, freeing the video snippet-sharing mobile app to keep winning new users in the Us, for now.

 
The temporary injunction is a setback to President Donald Trump who had ordered the ban of the app citing security reasons.
 
District Judge Carl Nichols issued a temporary injunction at the request of TikTok, which the White House has called a national security threat, alleging that its Chinese parent firm is tied to Beijing.
 
An order from US President Donald Trump sought to ban new downloads of the app at the end of Sunday, but allowed until November 12 for a second phase aimed at stopping TikTok from operating in the US entirely.
 
The judge denied TikTok‘s request to also suspend the November 12 ban, but noted that his decision was “for now.”
 
TikTok lovers in the US will wake Monday to life as usual, at least in regard to their enjoyment of the platform.
 
That was going to be the case anyway, since the ban that had been poised to take effect Sunday only applied to new downloads and updates.
