TikTok US ban postponed as Trump approves Oracle/Walmart deal

TikTok US ban postponed as Trump approves Oracle/Walmart deal

trump tiktokIt’s been another topsy-turvy weekend in the US for TikTok. On Friday, the Department of Commerce announced that as of 20 September (Sunday) US app stores would be banned from making the app available to download, or for it to be updated for existing users.

Yet on Saturday, the department announced that “in the light of recent positive developments” the ban would be delayed a week until 27 September.

TikTok’s parent company ByteDance had filed a lawsuit on Friday against the Trump administration to try to block the ban, but as the ‘positive developments’ quote shows, that wasn’t the reason for the delay.
