US NEWS: The US government is passing a decision to block TikTok restrictions

The government has raised concerns about national security in its response to TikTok, arguing that personal information of American users could be obtained by the Chinese government. TikTok, which has more than 100 million users in the United States, denies the allegations.

Trump officials on Monday passed a provincial judge’s decision blocking restrictions that could effectively ban the use of the Chinese video sharing app TikTok in the United States.

The government has raised concerns about national security in its response to TikTok, arguing that personal information of American users could be obtained by the Chinese government. TikTok, which has more than 100 million users in the United States, denies the allegations.

In a decision of December 7, U.S. Regional Court Judge Carl Nichols in Washington issued an order barring the Department of Commerce from restricting the handling of TikTok data within the United States, content delivery services and other technological services provided by TikTok owner Bytedance that would prevent the United States application from operating.

The Department of Justice said it was appealing Nichols’ application to the U.S. District Court of Colombia.

The U.S. Supreme Court of Appeal for Justice is expected to hear an appeal in February against U.S. decision by U.S. District Judge Wendy Beetlestone in Pennsylvania, which barred those restrictions imposed on November 12.

Officials were told by Reuters that the government was unlikely to resolve TikTok’s fate in the United States before President Donald Trump left office on January 20. There was still a chance the deal could be struck in January. .

In a separate ruling in September, Nichols issued an order barring the Department of Commerce from requiring Apple Inc and Google Alphabet to remove the TikTok app from their stores.

The U.S. Supreme Court of Justice in Washington has heard the government’s appeal for that decision two weeks ago.

Earlier this month, Trump executives chose not to give ByteDance a new extension of an order issued by the president in August demanding that the company part with US property TikTok. That gave the Department of Justice the power to enforce divestiture orders once the deadline has expired.

In a December 16 interview with Reuters, former Deputy Attorney-General Jeffrey Rosen declined to say whether the Department of Justice would seek to enforce the law. Rosen has since become the acting US Attorney General.

Under pressure from the US government, ByteDance has been negotiating for months to finalize an agreement with Walmart Inc and Oracle Corp to move US TikTok assets into a new company.
