Microsoft founder Bill Gates is unsure about Microsoft-TikTok likely deal. In an interview with the Wired, he called it a “poisoned chalice”. He also said that Trump’s decision to ban TikTok is “pretty bizarre”. Gates said that “being in the social media business is no simple game” and while he was happy with Microsoft stepping into it, he wasn’t too supportive of TikTok ban. He also said that govt asking for a cut in the sale of TikTok’s US operations is strange.
