The Trump administration on Monday appealed a federal judge’s order blocking restrictions that would have effectively barred the use of Chinese-owned short video-sharing app TikTok in the US.
The government has cited national security concerns in its targeting of TikTok, arguing that the personal data of US users could be obtained by China’s government. TikTok, which has over 100 million users in the US, denies the allegation.

The Justice Department said it was appealing the order to the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. (Shutterstock)
