President orders China-based Tiktok owner ByteDance to sell

Impeached U.S. President Donald Trump late on Friday ordered the Chinese-owned company ByteDance to divest all interest in the U.S. operations of video-sharing app TikTok within 90 days.

"There is credible evidence that leads me to believe that ByteDance … might take action that threatens to impair the national security of the United States," said Trump in the order.
