TikTok is suing the US govt for banning its operations in the country. It claims that users’ data is stored in Singapore, US servers. “The Trump administration has ignored our numerous efforts”, it added. The critics say TikTok’s China ties make it a national threat in itself, irrespective of where the data is stored. TikTok knows that winning the lawsuit is not absolutely essential as the upcoming presidential elections (Trump losing) could retain its ban.
