UPDATE 1-Trump says his administration spoke to Walmart, Oracle about TikTok

(Adds Trump quotes)

WASHINGTON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said his administration had spoken to Walmart Inc and Oracle Corp on Thursday about TikTok, but that not much had changed about a deal for the Chinese-owned short video app.

“We’re making a decision. We spoke today to Walmart, Oracle. I guess Microsoft is still involved,” Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for a visit to Wisconsin.

“We’ll make a decision, but nothing much has changed. We’ll make a decision soon.”

The Chinese company ByteDance, which owns TikTok, is racing to clinch a deal with the White House that would stave off a U.S. ban on TikTok that Trump has threatened could happen as early as next week. (Reporting by Jeff Mason; Writing by Mohammad Zargham; Editing by Sandra Maler and Tom Brown)
