Trump told reporters that he was giving the deal with Oracle “my blessing” and that it had addressed U.S. national security concerns.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he “approves a deal in concept” that will allow TikTok to continue to operate in the United States, after threatening to ban the app. About 100 million Americans use TikTok and U.S. officials have expressed concern about user data and the potential for China to access that data.
