Iain Murray US-UK tensions


CGTN's Asieh Namdar spoke with Iain Murray, VP of strategy for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, about new tensions between Trump and the British government.

Chinese video-sharing app TikTok has responded to Donald Trump's threat of a US ban by declaring: "We're not planning on going anywhere."

In a video aimed at the app's supporters, TikTok spokesperson Vanessa Pappas said it was "here for the long run" and called people to "stand for TikTok".

It followed a suggestion from the president that he would stop the app from operating in the US, as tensions have risen between America and China.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is set to fight for his freedom in a British court after about 10 years of legal drama, as he challenges an attempt by the American authorities to extradite him on spying charges over the site's publication of secret US military documents.

Lawyers for Assange and the US government are scheduled to face-off in London on Monday at an extradition hearing that was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

US prosecutors have indicted the 49-year-old Australian on 18 espionage and computer misuse charges adding up to a maximum sentence of 175 years.

His lawyers say the prosecution is a politically motivated abuse of power that will stifle press freedom and put journalists at risk.

Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from London, UK.
