Trump says TikTok sale can go through but only if the US gets a cut

US President, Donald Trump has revealed he would allow an American company to buy social media app, Tiktok but only if the United States gets a sizeable cut from any deal that takes place.

Trump’s comments come after Microsoft released a statement on Sunday August 3, revealing they intend buying TikTok from Bytedance, a Chinese company that owns Tiktok.

The US president announced last week that Tiktok will be banned from the United States after lawmakers and intelligence agencies expressed concerns that the Chinese government could use the app to spy on Americans.

 

                        

After Microsoft announced it was considering buying the app, Trump on Monday August 3, said any potential sale must benefit the US Treasury.

He then set September 15 as the deadline for TikTok to find a US buyer, or else he will shut down the app in the country.

“Right now they don’t have any rights unless we give it to them. So if we’re going to give them the rights, then … it has to come into this country,” Trump said on Monday.

“It’s a great asset, but it’s not a great asset in the United States unless they have approval in the United States.”

TikTok, in defence says they will become an extinct company and that it remains committed to its large American user base.

“TikTok is loved by 100 million Americans because it is a home for entertainment, self-

expression, and connection,” company spokesperson Josh Gartner said in a statement.
“TikTok will be here for many years to come.”
