Speaking to reporters, Trump said he approved the deal “in concept.”
“I have given the deal my blessing,” he said. “If they get it done, that’s great. If they don’t, that’s okay, too.”
Oracle didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
Trump added the deal will include a $5 billion fund for US education, though he did not say which companies would be making the payment. Trump had previously expressed a desire for the companies to make a payment to the US Treasury, but was surprised when he was told such an arrangement would be illegal.
Trump also said the deal will result in 25,000 jobs, and that TikTok would be headquartered in Texas.
