Trump bans US transactions WeChat and TikTok
China expected to strike back
US President Donald Trump has unveiled sweeping bans on US transactions with the Chinese owners of messaging app WeChat and video-sharing app TikTok.
The move escalates the US confrontation with Beijing over the future of the global tech industry and willl invite some retaliation.
The executive orders announced and effective in 45 days come after the Trump administration this week flagged increased effort to purge “untrusted” Chinese apps from US digital networks, calling Tencent WeChat and Bytedance’s TikTok “significant threats”.
China said the companies comply with US laws and regulations and warned that the United States would have to “bear the consequences” of its action.
