  • President Donald Trump issued an executive order Thursday night that would place a ban on business transactions with WeChat.
  • WeChat is the primary service people in the U.S. use to talk to friends and family in China, since U.S.-based apps are already banned there.
  • If Trump’s executive order goes through, people in the U.S. would have effectively no free way to talk to friends and loved ones in China.
