Pompeo: US Wants 'Untrusted' Chinese Apps Barred, Seeks to Extend Arms Embargo Against Iran

The US State Department will begin working with the Department of Commerce and additional agencies to limit Beijing's ability to store and process data and other sensitive information in the US, according to Wednesday afternoon comments made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

While speaking to the media during a livestreamed conference at the Department of State, Pompeo noted that the US also wishes to see "untrusted" Chinese apps such as TikTok and WeChat removed from digital platforms, claiming they pose significant threats to the personal data of US citizens.

"We want to see untrusted Chinese apps removed from app stores," he said.
