Microsoft wants to buy TikTok. Donald Trump gives it 45 days to negotiate
United States (US) President Donald Trump is giving the software giant 45 days in which to clinch the deal.
Trump as recently as Friday threatened to ban TikTok, dismissing Microsoft’s overtures, but changed his tune after lobbying by Republican lawmakers.
TikTok has about 100 million users in the US.
It is the seventh most downloaded app of the 2010s.
TikTok is available in 75 languages in 150 markets.
