tiktok oracleDonald Trump has approved a deal which will see Oracle lead a coalition to buy TikTok from Chinese company ByteDance.

Last month Trump ordered that ByteDance sell TikTok, or else it would be shut down in the United States. About 100 million Americans use TikTok and U.S. officials have expressed concern about user data and the potential for China to access that data.

On Saturday, shortly before departing for a campaign rally in North Carolina, the president said he had given the green light to an offer made by California-based Oracle, working in a partnership with Walmart. ‘I have given the deal my blessing,’ he said, adding that the agreement ‘will have nothing to do with China.’ He continued: ‘It’ll be totally secure, that’s part of the deal.’

TikTok, known in China as Douyin is a Chinese video-sharing social networking service owned by ByteDance, a Beijing-based Internet technology company founded in 2012 by Zhang Yiming. It is used to create short music, lip-sync, dance, comedy and talent videos of 3 to 15 seconds, and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds. ByteDance first launched Douyin for the Chinese market in September 2016. Later, TikTok was launched in 2017 for iOS and Android in most markets outside of mainland China; however, it only became available worldwide, including the United States, after merging with another Chinese social media service on 2 August 2018.
