US President Donald Trump has said he has no objection to Microsoft buying a Chinese-owned short-length video app, TikTok. However, any American company must buy it by September 15, reports Reuters on Monday.

Trump added that he had talked to Microsoft’s chief executive and that the matter would be easier if Microsoft bought TikTok instead of buying a portion of 30%.

Earlier last week, Trump threatened to ban TikTok, citing national security concerns.
