US President Biden revoked a Trump administration ban on Chinese-owned apps TikTok and WeChat in an executive order on Thursday. Instead, Biden ordered a broader review of apps controlled by foreign countries to determine whether they pose a security threat to the US. The new policy could lead to an even broader crackdown on Chinese-owned apps. Trump’s ban on WeChat and TikTok were blocked by federal court rulings in 2020. (WSJ)
