TikTok opposed the U.S. Department of Commerce’s decision

The US Department of Commerce announced a few days ago that it will implement the WeChat and TikTok ban starting this Sunday. The ban will require Apple and Google to remove the above-mentioned applications from the App Store and Play Store.

The US Department of Commerce stated that it will not force Americans to delete WeChat and TikTok, but it will prevent people from downloading or updating apps through the app store.

Subsequently, TikTok, a subsidiary of ByteDance, issued a statement expressing its opposition to the US Department of Commerce’s decision and will continue to advance the lawsuit against US President Trump’s executive order.

The U.S. Department of Commerce decided to ban TikTok from downloading updates in the U.S. App Store starting this Sunday, and it will also ban TikTok from providing services in the U.S. on November 12.

We disagree with the decision from the Commerce Department, and are disappointed that it stands to block new app downloads from Sunday and ban use of the TikTok app in the U.S. from Nov. 12,” the company said in a statement. “We will continue to challenge the unjust executive order.”
