Should TikTok users be worried about the future of the video sharing app? Rumors have been swirling about whether or not fans will be able to continue sharing videos on the app for weeks now, especially after President Donald Trump revealed that he wanted to shut it down.
Most recently, NPR reported that TikTok plans to sue the Trump Administration following his executive order to ban the app from the United States. On Saturday, August 8, a source told them, “The lawsuit will argue that President Trump’s far-reaching action is unconstitutional because it failed to give the company a chance to respond.”
“It also alleges that the administration’s national security justification for the order is baseless,” the insider added. “It’s based on pure speculation and conjecture.”
According to the publication, The White House did not comment on the lawsuit, but spokesman Judd Deere said they are “committed to protecting the American people from all cyber related threats.”
So, what exactly does that mean for the fan-favorite app? Is it going to be banned? Scroll through our gallery to uncover everything we know so far.
