    The clock is ticking on Tik Tok -- Latest sell deadline is today:

    "Deadline looms to sell US TikTok platform

    Prospects for popular shortform video app TikTok remained unclear Friday, the Trump administration's latest deadline on China's ByteDance to sell the US TikTok platform.

    The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States on November 25 pushed back the deadline by seven days to resolve the issue, which centers on White House threats to ban the popular social media app, which it says could be used for Chinese espionage..."

    "TikTok sale deadline will pass, though regulators will hold off on enforcing divestiture

    TikTok’s Chinese owner didn’t get a formal reprieve from the Friday deadline to divest the U.S. operations of its popular video app. But it appears to have gotten a bit more time...

    The Treasury Department told TikTok executives Friday that it would not extend the deadline, but also said it won’t yet compel the sale,..

    There is no formal extension, but no plans to enforce anything...No new deadline, even an informal one, was given for a deal’s completion..."
