Trump Demands US Get Cut Of TikTok Sale

Trump Demands US Get Cut Of TikTok Sale [VIDEO]

Bloomberg News reports:

President Donald Trump said TikTok will have to close in the U.S. by Sept. 15 — unless there’s a deal to sell the social network’s domestic operations to Microsoft Corp. or another U.S. company. Trump also said the federal government will have to be paid a “substantial amount of money” as part of any deal.

“I don’t mind whether it’s Microsoft or someone else, a big company, a secure company, a very American company buys it,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday.

“Whatever the price is that goes to whoever owns it — because I guess it’s China, essentially, more than anything else — I said a very substantial portion of that price is going to have to come into the treasury of the United States.”

      Hi Nan, Hi Scottie;

      I think this is why: https://www.thenational.ae/world/the-americas/k-pop-fans-and-tiktok-users-say-they-sabotaged-trump-rally-1.1036811

      In any other context it would be hillarious.

        I had heard a little bit about these shenanigans, but didn’t know it went to the extent it did. I have to laugh! They definitely pulled a fast one … and Trump being Trump, I can see why he’s upset … and of course, for him, money talks.

        Hello Randy. Yes I remember that, also there are some lip syncing stars on that platform that tear the stuffing out of tRump. They really get under his skin. That is why he wants it shut down or changed to a US company he can bully to stop those videos. It has nothing to do with information on the users as he doesn’t mind any other company doing the same, such as FaceBook, Google, Apple, Amazon to name just four. But the real question Randy is how does he think he deserves a cut of the price? How does that work in a democracy that the ruler gets a cut of all the corporation / business sales and purchases in the country? Is this a new tax? even his people couldn’t explain how it would work. I think the suggestion is a one time large donation to the tRump campaign funds and maybe a few memberships at Mar-a-largo. Or they could do what Russian mobs do and buy tRump real estate.
        The graft is now being done openly. Hugs

      Hello Nan. Every mob boss demands a cut. Nice company you have here, be a shame if I banned it. Well I think we could work something out, just a little off the top if you know what I mean. Most extortionist are not that open and brasion about hitting their marks up as to do it on national TV, but hey he is tRump. He has gotten away with every other crime he has done, why not reach for more money. Hugs
