Reuters first to report Trump bars U.S. transactions with eight Chinese apps including Alipay

Reuters was first to report that U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning transactions with eight Chinese software applications, including Ant Group’s Alipay, escalating tensions with Beijing before President-elect Joe Biden takes office this month. The move is aimed at curbing the threat to Americans posed by Chinese software applications, which have large user bases and access to sensitive data, a Reuters source said.
