Trump says TikTok must sell by Sept. 15 or it will be shut in US

President Donald Trump said TikTok will have to close in the US by September 15, unless there’s a deal to sell the social network’s domestic operations to Microsoft Corp. or another US company.

“I don’t mind whether it’s Microsoft or someone else, a big company, a secure company, a very American company buys it,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “It’ll close down on Sept. 15 unless Microsoft or somebody else is able to buy it and work out a deal, an appropriate deal, so the Treasury of the United States gets a lot of money.”

Adding that the brand name is “hot” right now, Trump said, “It’s a great asset.”
