Trump 'not prepared to sign off' on TikTok deal

United States President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he was "not prepared to sign off" on the deal between Oracle Corp. and ByteDance. "I have to see the deal," Trump added, stating that he would be briefed on the agreement on Thursday. He commented that he was "not going to be happy" if ByteDance kept a majority stake in TikTok according to the details of the agreement.

Trump said he had been informed that a part of the money from the transaction could not be paid straight to the US Treasury, as he had planned. However, he added that the administration was "looking into it" and that "I want a big chunk of the money to go to the government because we made it possible."
