The Trump administration will this week review a deal between Oracle Corp. and TikTok, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in an interview Monday. Mnuchin spoke to CNBC after it was reported that Oracle had won the bidding for the U.S. operations of the video-sharing app, beating out Microsoft Corp. . After a review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., a recommendation will be made to President Donald Trump, Mnuchin said. TikTok is a unit of China-based ByteDance. The Treasury chief also said he remains open to discussing more stimulus for the coronavirus-battered U.S. economy with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat.
