Trump signed an Executive order against social network WeChat

US President Donald Trump signed an Executive order on Thursday prohibiting transactions involving the social network WeChat, which he owns, with Chinese Internet giant Tencent and its subsidiaries. The text of the document was distributed by the White House press service.





The ban takes effect 45 days after the decree is published. It covers “any transactions related to WeChat<...> with Tencent Holdings or its subsidiaries.”

“The United States must take aggressive action against WeChat owners in order to protect our national security,” Trump's Executive order says.

According to Trump, the Tiktok app and the WeChat social network pose a threat to US national security, and therefore Washington should “take aggressive actions” against their owners. “Like TikTok, WeChat automatically accumulates vast amounts of information from its users,” the President said. In both cases, according to Washington, this allows “the Chinese Communist party to access personal data of Americans, as well as corporate information.”
