The hanging game over the Tiktok app continues: Donald Trump wanted to push the Chinese video platform from the US market by November at the latest. Now he seems to have lost interest in the subject. But the ban is still in the room, emphasizes his government.
The popular Tiktok video app can initially be used in the USA without any restrictions. The US Department of Commerce announced on Thursday that it would not try to implement an order that could mean the end of Tiktok in the US market until further notice. One will first wait for the development of legal proceedings.
Ministry of Commerce backs down
US President Donald Trump and his administration had put Tiktok under pressure in various ways. Two of the orders have been suspended with temporary injunctions in the past few weeks, and the Ministry of Commerce has now withdrawn from the third. It had given the Chinese Tiktok owner Bytedance a deadline of November 12th to dispose of property related to the operation of the app in the USA.
Bytedance is negotiating with the US software company Oracle and the retail giant Walmart about the sale of the US branch of Tiktok. The app has around a hundred million users in the US.
Trump noticeably lost interest in the topic during the election campaign after the quick sale to US corporations failed.
Alleged security risk
Trump described the app as a security risk because Chinese authorities could use it to obtain data from US citizens. He wanted to force that at least the US business of Tiktok comes under the control of American owners. The government in China torpedoed talks about a sale with a new rule that forbids the export of software algorithms without special permission.
The platform was created in 2017 by merging with the sing-along app Musical.ly, which had become successful with a lip-sync function for self-made videos. Tiktok users can create videos that are 15 to 60 seconds long: there is dancing in the clips, and they also contain parodies, skits and lots of beauty tips. With the help of artificial intelligence, the app, which is particularly popular with young people, determines user preferences and suggests more videos to them.
