(NewsReady.com) – In August, President Donald Trump took action against two Chinese companies that own the TikTok and WeChat apps. Both of the parent companies were accused of giving US users’ data to the Communist government. As a result, WeChat’s future is uncertain, but a judge recently stepped in and interfered in the TikTok ban.
On Sunday, September 27, US District Judge Carl Nichols granted ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, a temporary stay on the ban shortly before it was supposed to go into effect. Recently, the judge allowed the app to remain in US app stores, but refused to block the other restrictions that go into effect on November 12.

It’s disturbing that the app is allowed to operate while giving the Chinese government access to user data. It puts the American people at risk and the judge is permitting that risk to continue.
