The on-off talks between Microsoft and TikTok are back on. Microsoft wants to buy part of TikTok. However, Donald Trump said he might ban TikTok in the USA. He changed his mind after the Microsoft CEO phoned him. Microsoft said it would make sure that all private data of US users would stay in the United States.

TikTok is very popular. It has over 800 million users worldwide. Users upload short videos of themselves singing to songs, dancing, making faces or doing other funny things. A Chinese businessman started TikTok in 2012. Microsoft will pay $50 billion for a part of the company. A business website said this was too much.
