For more: https://www.cgtn.com/video TikTok received a reprieve of its ban from U.S. app stores on Sunday when a federal judge in Washington granted a preliminary injunction blocking an order from President Trump. The ruling comes hours before TikTok was to be removed from mobile app stores. U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, who was appointed to the bench by Trump in 2019, handed down the decision. TikTok has been embroiled in a push-and-pull saga with President Trump for the past two months as it races to make a deal that will allow it to keep operating in the country. It’s proposed an arrangement that would create a new entity, called TikTok Global, that would include investments from Oracle and Walmart. What does this temporary ban mean to the future of TikTok, especially with the election coming up in November? #TikTok #US #ChinaCGTN YouTube Channel

TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.
ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service Musical.ly on 2 August 2018.
