TikTok is a China-owned messaging app (software for mobile devices) which claims 100 million American users, and which was ordered on August 6, 2020, by President Donald Trump to transfer its ownership to an American company within 45 days or else be sanctioned. TikTok became popular because it facilitates the creation and distribution of short videos on cell phones.

TikTok sued in federal court in San Francisco to block Trump's Executive Order against it.[1]

On September 14, 2020, TikTok announced a deal with Oracle to try to remain in the United States.[2]
