Microsoft on Sunday confirmed that it has held talks with Chinese technology company ByteDance to acquire its trendy social app TikTok in the U.S. Microsoft said in a statement that it will keep working with the U.S. government on a deal and that it intends to conclude talks by September 15.
If it were to complete the deal, Microsoft could simultaneously resolve a recent controversy in Washington and gain power in consumer technology..
The statement comes two days after media outlets including CNBC reported that Microsoft was interested in acquiring the app, which is owned by Chinese company ByteDance. Soon after the reports emerged, President Trump said that he opposed the idea of Microsoft buying TikTok and that he would move to ban the app in the U.S.
The two companies have looked at Microsoft buying TikTok in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and Microsoft might offer other American investors to get involved in the acquisition, Microsoft said, adding that its CEO, Satya Nadella, has spoken with Trump. The company did not disclose deal terms.
“This new structure would build on the experience TikTok users currently love, while adding world-class security, privacy, and digital safety protections,” Microsoft said. “The operating model for the service would be built to ensure transparency to users as well as appropriate security oversight by governments in these countries.”

C'mon this lady anchor should have done her homework. For Apple, Amazon, Google and FB to enter China, China requested them to follow local regulations and set data server in China. Apple and Amazon followed. Google and FB chose not to follow so they didn't get into the China market. For TikTok, it already sets its US operation's data server in US and following all required regulations, but now still being attacked by Trump without any evidence of damaging US National security. These two things are not comparable at all so pls don't misunderstand the international community

The tactic is simply to destroy any Chinese enterprise that's sucessful.
Trump has found a hammer, and uses it on any nail sticking up.

Meanwhile, the US is falling apart...

False comparison. Big difference from telling me the rules and I chose to accept them, versus I follow the rules and you change them to cheat me.

Chinese government using tic tok to steal Americans informations... while Tic Tok’s server are all located in the US... 🤣🤣🤣 what?

This reporter just completely misidentified the reason Chinese people are calling out the CEO of ByteDance. People are angry because he didn't put up a fight, which shows how little backbone he has, not because of his effort to make TikTok global.
