In August, Donald Trump threatened to ban TikTok and WeChat by 15 September if they are not bought by a United States company. The suit, filed in federal court in Washington, DC, says the administration overstepped its bounds and violated free speech when it decided earlier Friday to go ahead with the download ban, which would kick in on Sunday, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Under a separate executive order issued last month, TikTok owner ByteDance has until November 12 to complete a sale of its USA operations.
The Commerce Department announced Saturday evening, "In light of recent positive developments, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, at the direction of President Trump, will delay the prohibition of identified transactions pursuant to Executive Order 13942, related to the TikTok mobile application that would have been effective on Sunday, September 20, 2020, until September 27, 2020 at 11:59 p.m".
