Bloomberg quoted Nick Turner in a January 5 article titled "Trump Targets Ant’s Alipay, WeChat Pay in Latest App Bans." The article discusses an order President Trump signed banning US transactions with eight Chinese apps including Ant Group Co.'s Alipay and Tencent Holdings Ltd.'s digital wallets.
Turner says: "The new Executive Order is similar to, but appears to be more broadly worded, than last year's Executive Orders targeting transactions in respect of WeChat and TikTok. The ultimate scope of the restrictions and the entities that will be targeted is hard to predict. Presumably, the impact will be focused on transactions in the United States, although that is not guaranteed."
