Will Microsoft buy TikTok in America?
Microsoft has said that it has plans to buy TikTok in America and it is going to have discussions about the same, with ByteDance, the parent company of TikTok.
“Government Intel supposedly alerted Trump to the access China had to American info through TikTok. I don’t know all the details…. but idea of banning is a security issue…. nothing else. Of course, Trump fails at explaining that.”
Microsoft said that it had had discussions with US President Donald Trump regarding the buying of TikTok in America.
“The fact that Trump is actually speaking to Microsoft and they are engaging with him is ridiculous…….. He can’t help the country in crisis but a acquisition that he or his friends could profit from……. but of course”
In its release, Microsoft said:
“Following a conversation between Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and President Donald J. Trump, Microsoft is prepared to continue discussions to explore a purchase of TikTok in the United States.”
In their blog post, Microsoft stated:
“During this process, Microsoft looks forward to continuing dialogue with the United States Government, including with the President.”
“Why are they “negotiating” with Trump? He doesn’t own TikTok and he has limited power to “ban” them — which is why he’s just talk. This is how a grifter makes it through life. Don’t fall for it.”
Microsoft also stated in their blog post:
“Microsoft appreciates the U.S. Governments and President Trump’s personal involvement as it continues to develop strong security protections for the country.”
“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.”
Earlier on, Donald Trump had said:
“As far as TikTok is concerned we’re banning them from the United States. … Well, I have that authority. I can do it with an executive order or [emergency economic powers].”
Will Micrtosoft be able to buy TikTok not just in America, but also in Australia, New Zealand and Canada? We will just have to wait and see.
“So the only non-American top 10 app is being blackmailed into an American acquisition”
