    LET'S MAKE A DEAL: Trump effectively bans TikTok, WeChat with executive orders

    President Donald Trump threatened to ban TikTok earlier this week unless the China-based app is acquired by a US company. On Thursday, he enshrined that threat into an executive order, calling the wide use of Chinese apps a "national emergency."

    "The spread in the United States of mobile applications developed and owned by companies in the People's Republic of China continues to threaten the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States," reads the executive order. "At this time, action must be taken to address the threat posed by one mobile application in particular, TikTok."

    "TikTok automatically captures vast swaths of information from its users, including internet and other network activity information such as location data and browsing and search histories," the order reads. "This data collection threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party access to Americans' personal and proprietary information --- potentially allowing China to track the locations of Federal employees and contractors, build dossiers of personal information for blackmail, and conduct corporate espionage."
