Trump’s TikTok, WeChat Actions Targeting China Revoked by Biden

The WeChat app, in particular, is widely used by US companies that do business in China. The US-China Business Council, which represents many of those companies, said it didn’t have enough information about the new executive order to comment on the security provisions. But the group did say the White House should work to establish global agreements on data flows and privacy. “Without international agreements, there’s a real danger that individual country data flows and privacy protection policies will throttle innovation, cripple the Internet of things, and adversely affect future US and global economic growth,” the group said in a statement.
