“We will make a decision very soon.

I really respect Larry Alison, I know him, for a long time he was a great guy, we'll see.

I heard that they are very close to a deal.

Together with Larry Alison and Oracle, we will consider a deal with TikTok, ”RIA Novosti quoted Trump as saying.

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.

Trump also said that American companies Microsoft and Oracle may be interested in acquiring TikTok's business in the United States.
