SHOW TRANSCRIPT

On Thursday, President Trump said he won't extend the deadline for TikTok to find a U.S. buyer.

The president mandated the sale after accusing the Chinese government of using the social media app, which is owned by a Chinese company, to collect data on Americans.

TikTok's parent company, ByteDance, has a few days left to sell. But the app has sued the Trump administration over what it called a "heavily politicized" executive order.

Offers have been made, but conflicting demands from the U.S. and Chinese governments have made the sale difficult.
