Tiktok said it will fight the Trump administration in court over an executive order that bans its operation in the U.S.

The company told CNN it could begin legal action in the upcoming week.

That's unless an American business buys the platform.

TikTok says it has tried to negotiate with the Trump administration, but encountered what it calls a "lack of due process."

The White House has argued the company could be a security risk.
