TikTok: ByteDance & Microsoft offer deal to allow it to remain in the US

ByteDance and Microsoft offer deal to allow TikTok to remain in the U.S., per report

TikTok parent company ByteDance has reportedly agreed to sell its American operations to prevent the Trump administration from banning it in the US, according to Reuters.

"China’s ByteDance  has agreed to divest its TikTok operations in the US, according to a report in Reuters. Under the deal, Microsoft would take over stewardship of the data of U.S.-based users. The deal allows another company besides Microsoft to operate TikTok in the United States. This would allow the service to continue to operate in the United States, sidestepping the alleged executive order threatened by President Trump.

Allegedly, ByteDance had previously sought a deal that would allow the company to retain a minority stake in the company. That plan was apparently recently abandoned after the White House rejected the proposal.

Under this new deal, Microsoft would be in charge of protecting U.S.-based users’ data, and another U.S.-based company would be allowed to operate TikTok ."

And when the deal is rejected we know it's because it was due to his hate for China and him wanting to silence people that don't agree with him.

Maybe we cant agree with the political reasons behind this move from US, but I dont get how it is ok that Google, Facebook and Twitter are banned in China, but TikTok can operate in US and other western countries. That shouldn't be possible.
