Trump Approved A Deal Between TikTok And Oracle Over The Ban

The President of United States of America, Donald Trump on Saturday said he has approved a deal between TikTok and Oracle (ORCL) to temporarily remove a ban on TikTok in US.

However, ByteDance will continue to be majority owner of TikTok under the agreement Trump said he approved.
President Trump said he approved the deal “in concept” while speaking to reporters, he said;
“I have given the deal my blessing,” Trump said. “If they get it done, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s okay, too.”
“the security will be 100 percent. They’ll be using separate clouds and very, very powerful security.”
According to Trump, the deal will also include a $5 billion fund for US education. He had previously expressed a desire for the companies to make a payment to the US Treasury, but was surprised when he was told such an arrangement would be illegal.
