On the night from Sunday to Monday, a US federal judge in Washington postponed the download ban on the TikTok app in the United States at the last minute until after the US elections.

The download ban on TikTok was previously postponed for a week because the deal that TikTok’s Chinese parent company ByteDance now has with the American Oracle and Walmart has not yet been finalized. The judgment on the download ban has now been postponed until a week after the US presidential election on November 3.

The US government wants TikTok to be owned by an American company, because the originally Chinese app would pose a threat to the national security of the US.

The US company Oracle announced last week that a proposal for a deal with ByteDance had been sent to the US government. US President Donald Trump has said he is satisfied with the content of that deal.

In addition to the download ban, a total ban on the app in the United States had also been announced in two months. No further judgments have been made about this by the judge. The full verdict will be announced on Monday.
