TikTok plans to sue the Trump administration over its recent executive order as early as Tuesday, NPR reported Saturday, citing a source directly involved in the lawsuit.




President Donald Trump's recent executive order banned US individuals and companies from engaging in "any transaction" with Chinese firm ByteDance, the app's parent company.




NPR reported the lawsuit will argue that the administration "failed to give the company a chance to respond" to the order.




The lawsuit also alleges the administration's justification of the order for "national security" reasons is not supported with evidence, according to NPR.

The order – which was followed up by a similar order targeting WeChat, a messaging platform also belonging to a Chinese company – cited concerns for national security.
