Trump gives TikTok 90 days to sell all its US assets

President Trump has given Chinese company ByteDance 90 days to divest itself of any assets used to support TikTok in the United States.

His recently signed order said there is “credible evidence that leads me to believe that ByteDance … might take action that threatens to impair the national security of the United States”.

Trump has also ordered ByteDance to divest itself of “any data obtained or derived” from TikTok users in the US.

Microsoft is currently in talks to buy elements of TikTok.
