TikTok asks court to intervene as Trump orders shutdown of video-sharing app

Popular video-sharing app TikTok has asked a federal court to intervene its future in limbo since President Donald Trump tried to shut it down earlier this fall. TikTok’s Chinese owner ByteDance has until Thursday to sell off its US operations under an executive order that Trump signed in August.
