WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Thursday ruled out extending the September 15 deadline for Chinese video-sharing social networking platform TikTok to either change its ownership to an American company or shut it down.

In an executive order last month, Trump had set September 15 as the deadline for the Chinese app to either change its ownership to an American company or shut it down, ANI reported.

In August, Trump ordered the Beijing-based ByteDance to sell its US business or the popular video application would be banned.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has claimed that TikTok and other applications like WeChat are feeding data directly
to China’s national security apparatus.
