Donald Trump threatens to ban TikTok in the United States

The Chinese technology company ByteDance has agreed to divest itself of TikTok’s U.S. operations after President Donald Trump threatened to ban the app. On Friday, Trump said he would sign an executive order banning TikTok in the U.S., putting pressure on ByteDance to sell the popular short-video app. Following the president’s comments, negotiations took place between the White House, ByteDance and potential buyers of TikTok, including Microsoft, in which the Chinese tech firm agreed to hand over control of TikTok in the U.S. to Microsoft. Under the deal, Microsoft would be in charge of protecting all U.S. user data on the app. For more info, please go to https://globalnews.ca/news/7243792/tiktok-trump-ban-us/ Subscribe to Global News Channel HERE: http://bit.ly/20fcXDc Like Global News on Facebook HERE: http://bit.ly/255GMJQ Follow Global News on Twitter HERE: http://bit.ly/1Toz8mt Follow Global News on Instagram HERE: https://bit.ly/2QZaZIB #TikTok #DonaldTrump #USPolitics #China #GlobalNews
