    TikTok executives are ready to sue over President Trump’s crackdown, Your Content has learned.

    TikTok will file a lawsuit against the president’s administration following the president’s attempts to block the Chinese-based video app from the US, citing national security concerns.

    The company has disagreed with the administration’s assessment as it sought to reach an agreement, though the platform claims it lacked due process as the president negotiated a deal for a US-based company to acquire the app, according to reports.

    Tiktok’s lawsuit, expected to be filed in US District Court this week, follows the president’s 6 August executive order forbidding “any transaction” between a US citizen and TikTok’s parent company ByteDance within 45 days, CNBC reports.
