US security officials suspected the data that TikTok’s owner collected may be handed to the Chinese government.

However, TikTok’s owner, ByteDance, denied the allegation saying that it is controlled by or shares data with China’s ruling Communist Party.

Trump on Saturday said the agreement would ensure the data and told reporters: “The security will be 100%.”

“I approve the deal in concept,” he said.
