Trump said that part of the profits from the sale TikTok will go to the U.S. Treasury
The US President Donald trump said that a significant portion of sales of the Chinese service TikTok needs to go to the U.S. Treasury.
"A very large part of that price must go to the Ministry of Finance of the USA," said trump at a press conference, speaking about the possible sale of the service.
When asked how the Ministry of Finance can also benefit from it, trump replied, "Very simple. We have on hands all cards. Without us they can not come to the United States."
Previously, trump said that he could forbid TikTok on the grounds that it is a Chinese company, which by law must transmit data about users to the authorities of the PRC. TikTok States that did not pass and is not planning to transmit user data to the Chinese authorities. Microsoft on Sunday confirmed after consultation with the trump that will continue negotiations on purchase of the application.
