Microsoft wants to buy the wildly popular Chinese video-sharing social media app TikTok.

United States (US) President Donald Trump is giving the software giant 45 days in which to clinch the deal.

Trump as recently as Friday threatened to ban TikTok, dismissing Microsoft’s overtures, but changed his tune after lobbying by Republican lawmakers.
