President Donald Trump gave prospective buyers of Chinese-owned video app TikTok's US operations until Sept. 15 to forge a deal, threatening to otherwise ban the video app in the country.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
"It will close down on Sept. 15 unless Microsoft or somebody else is able to buy it, and work out an appropriate deal," Trump told reporters in the Cabinet Room as he met with US tech workers. "Here's the deal: I don't mind whether its Microsoft or somebody else, a big company, a secure company, very American company buy it."
Trump had previously threatened to shut down the short-form mobile video app, owned by Beijing-based tech company ByteDance, over concerns that it could serve as a trojan horse that would expose American user data to the Chinese government.
