The head of the White House National Economic Council said that the deal to sell the network has not been fully agreed upon.

The Chinese company ByteDance, which owns the TikTok service, has asked a US court to temporarily block the ban on downloading the application. This was announced on Wednesday, September 23rd, by Bloomberg.

It is noted that the company has filed a petition to hold court hearings in the case of the American segment before the corresponding ban comes into force.

Recall that the ban on downloading TikTok, which was supposed to come into force on September 20, will take effect on September 27. It was postponed for a week as US President Donald Trump approved the acquisition of the US segment of TikTok by Oracle and Walmart.

However, according to media reports in the United States, the head of the National Economic Council of the White House, Lawrence Kudlow, said that the deal with Oracle and Walmart was not fully agreed upon, its parameters were changing.

Thus, if the mentioned deal is not concluded by November 12, the authorities of the country will begin to restrict the work of TikTok.
