US President Donald Trump said on Monday he would not approve a deal between Oracle and TikTok unless the US owners gain control over the popular Chinese-owned video-sharing app, in a reversal to his statement over the weekend that the deal had his “blessing”.

“They are going to buy it,” he said, referring to Oracle and Walmart. “And if we find that they don’t have total control, then we’re not going to approve the deal.”
