US PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP, HAS GIVEN POPULAR CHINESE-OWNED VIDEO APP, TIKTOK, SIX WEEKS TO SELL ITS U.S. OPERATIONS TO AN AMERICAN COMPANY, ADDING THAT THE GOVERNMENT MUST GET A FINANCIAL BENEFIT FROM THE DEAL.


WHILE STATING THAT MICROSOFT IS IN TALKS TO BUY THE APP, TRUMP ALSO WARNED THAT HE WILL BAN THE APP ON 15 SEPTEMBER IF THERE IS NO DEAL.

US OFFICIALS HAD SAID THAT THE APP CONSTITUTES A NATIONAL SECURITY RISK BECAUSE IT COULD SHARE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS’ PERSONAL DATA WITH CHINESE INTELLIGENCE.

CHINA’S FOREIGN MINISTRY HOWEVER PUSHED BACK ON MONDAY, CALLING WASHINGTON HYPOCRITICAL FOR DEMANDING TIKTOK BE SOLD.
