WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump said his administration spoke to Walmart Inc and Oracle Corp on Thursday about Tickcock, but not much had changed about a deal for a Chinese-owned short video app .
“We are taking a decision. We talked to Walmart, Oracle today. I think Microsoft is still involved, ”Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for a trip to Wisconsin.
“We will take a decision, but not much has changed. We will decide soon. “
The Chinese company ByteDance, which owns TickTock, is in the running to negotiate a deal with the White House that would end the US ban on Ticketok that Trump has threatened could happen early next week.
