Biden revokes and replaces Trump actions targeting TikTok and WeChat


President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Wednesday revoking actions targeting TikTok and WeChat signed by former President Donald Trump, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday.

President Biden signed a new order instead requiring the Commerce Department to review apps with ties to “jurisdiction of foreign adversaries” that may pose national security risks.

The U.S. Department of Commerce, Tencent and ByteDance could not be immediately reached for comment.
