Washington DC, 10/6 (AO Bureau): US President Joe Biden has overturned an important decision of former President Donald Trump. The US administration has refused to ban China’s popular apps Tiktok and WeChat for the time being. In September last year, Trump announced a ban on both these apps. But later his decision was stayed by the court. Withdrew the executive orders of former President Donald Trump related to initiatives taken in this direction and has decided to conduct a self-review to identify the national security threats related to these applications of China.
A new White House executive order directs the Commerce Department to conduct an “evidence-based” analysis of transactions involving apps manufactured, controlled or supplied by China. Officials are particularly concerned about applications that collect personal data of people and have links to Chinese military or intelligence activities.
