"Oracle is a great company ... I think Microsoft needs it, Oracle too, and possibly others, too," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying during his speech in Arizona.

At the same time, Trump demanded that companies pay "significant compensation" to the US Treasury in the event of a buyout of TikTok.

In early August, Trump demanded that TikTok be sold to an American company by September 15 in order to avoid the shutdown of the social network in the United States.

He also signed a decree prohibiting any transactions with ByteDance, which owns TikTok, or its subsidiaries.

TikTok said that the decree threatens to undermine the confidence of world business in the United States' commitment to the rule of law.
