U.S. will 'vigorously defend' TikTok executive order despite ruling

·1 min read

WASHINGTON, Nov 1 (Reuters) - The U.S Commerce Department said on Sunday it would "vigorously defend" an executive order that seeks to bar transactions with Chinese-owned short video-sharing app TikTok after a judge blocked the action.

U.S. District Judge Wendy Beetlestone on Friday blocked the Commerce Department order set to take effect on Nov. 12 that would have effectively barred ByteDance-owned TikTok from operating in the United States.

The Commerce Department said on Sunday it would "comply with the injunction and has taken immediate steps to do so, but intends to vigorously defend the (executive order) and the Secretary’s implementation efforts from legal challenges." (Reporting by David Shepardson; Editing by Peter Cooney)
