If you have been to China, you will notice that Facebook, Google, Twitter, WhatsApp etc don't function there, they were restricted to what I don't know the reason why Chinese government ban those apps and social networks before. I will say it's the Chinese that start by trying to be strict.

Secretary Wilbur Ross. “At the President’s direction, we have taken significant action to combat China’s malicious collection of American citizens’ personal data, while promoting our national values, democratic rules-based norms, and aggressive enforcement of U.S. laws and regulations.”

Me living outside china and usa and their allies: grabs pop corn

I used to use WeChat, still have a couple of contacts using it.
Moved to Telegram for a couple of years now.
Outside of China, there is no reason to use WeChat.

I wonder if Apple will ban it on their China store?

Tough luck for iOS, we could always choose to side load the updated app on Android.

Okay. I really can't think of this as a sane move by a rational government. Banning a video sharing app and a messaging/payment app used by millions. Trump really is desperate for votes from xenophobic US folks.

Good initiative.

Interesting how the US is continuing to isolate itself from the world, they have to understand that its too late to stop China.
