"TikTok says the Trump administration has forgotten about trying to ban it, would like to know what’s up"

TikTok has filed a petition in a US Court of Appeals calling for a review of actions by the Trump administration’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). The reason, according to the company, is that it hasn’t heard from the committee in weeks about an imminent deadline for parent company ByteDance to sell off US assets over national security concerns.

When TikTok can't be used as an election ploy anymore, the Trump administration has lost interest. They don't even care about all that national security talk
