China's back baby (thanks to some guy who owes them)

Not my president has undone more president Trump good ideas, this time, serving his masters in China.  I know that sounds harsh.  Don't care.

Via The Verge:

President Joe Biden signed an executive order Wednesday revoking the Trump-era bans on TikTok and WeChat. In place of the Trump order, Biden will direct the commerce secretary to investigate apps with ties to foreign adversaries that may pose a risk to American data privacy or national security.
The order takes the place of a series of executive orders instituted by President Trump last year, which blocked apps like TikTok, WeChat, and Alipay from US app stores and took further measures to prevent them from operating in the US. The most extreme effects of those orders were forestalled by ongoing court challenges, but Wednesday’s order will revoke the orders outright. Instead, Biden’s order will institute a new framework for determining the national security risks of transactions that involve apps that are connected to the governments or militaries of foreign adversaries, like China, or collect sensitive data from US consumers.

The article goes on to praise the administration for all of their word-smithing about being concerned about China and America's cybersecurity and about unspecified upcoming actions against China.  Actions though, speak louder than words.  The administration's actions are very telling.

Just as a reminder: This guy?  Some American people voted for THIS GUY? Really???
