The American leader stressed that the deal to sell the application to Oracle and Walmart is still preliminary.
U.S. President Donald Trump said that the most important aspect of the social network TikTok is security, so its disconnection in the country is not excluded. He said this on Monday, September 21, during a meeting with journalists.
In this regard, the head of the White House stressed that the deal to sell the American segment of service to Oracle and Walmart is still preliminary.
“It is under development. I gave my preliminary consent. Two great companies Oracle and Walmart work. If we manage to keep it, we will. If not, we will turn it off,” Trump said.
Recall that earlier, the head of state approved the acquisition of the American segment of TikTok by Oracle Corporation. At the same time, according to him, the social network will keep the name but will have no connections with China.
At the same time, Trump warned that the said transaction will be approved only if the buying companies get full control over the application.
