Biden Drops Case Against TikTok, ByteDance


WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – President Joe Biden has asked a US court to dismiss his predecessor Donald Trump’s case against the Chinese social video platform TikTok and its parent ByteDance, a court document revealed.

The September 24, 2020, appeal was originally filed by the Trump administration after the court denied the former president’s bid to use the courts to outlaw TikTok and ByteDance in the United States.

Earlier in June, Biden, at the government level, canceled Trump’s executive order to ban TikTok.

While Biden has undone most of Trump’s executive orders on immigration, climate change and other matters, he has left intact his predecessor’s tariffs imposed on China, indicating he might use them to pressure Beijing into making concessions on trade and other issues.
