Report: Microsoft in Talks to Acquire TikTok

Reports are circulating on Friday that Microsoft is in talks to acquire TikTok’s U.S. operations. “A deal would give the software company a popular social-media site and relieve U.S. government pressure on the Chinese owner of the video-sharing app,” according to Bloomberg.

The talks come as the Trump administration has considered banning TikTok in the United States, and Trump on Friday directed ByteDance, the Chinese owner of the app, to sell its U.S. operations.
