WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump has threatened to ban the trendy social media app in the United States. Microsoft, which is in discussions with TikTok’s Chinese parent company ByteDance to buy the social networking service’s operations in the United States and other English-speaking countries, said it would address the president’s concerns. Microsoft expects negotiations to end by mid-September and said it may bring on other U.S. investors to help purchase TikTok.
