TikTok and its U.S. employees are planning to take President Trump’s administration to court over his sweeping order to ban the popular video app. The employees’ legal challenge to Mr. Trump’s order will be separate from a pending lawsuit from the company that owns the app, though both will argue that the order is unconstitutional.

Mr. Trump last week ordered bans on dealings TikTok and WeChat, saying they are a threat to U.S. national security.
