Trump admin insists on banning TikTok

United States government has filed a lawsuit at a federal court in Washington insisting the judge allows President Donald Trump's administration to proceed with its restrictions on ByteDance Ltd.'s TikTok app.

"The president should not be prevented from regulating national security threats simply because a foreign adversary cloaks its activities within a media company," the filing read.

The US district court in question is set to issue a ruling on whether the administration can make downloads of TikTok unavailable on November 12 in President Trump's bid against the Chinese-owned app.
