Biden asks for more time on WeChat

The Biden administration asked a court Thursday for more time to evaluate former President Trump’s efforts to ban the Chinese social media site.

“As the Biden Administration has taken office, the Department of Commerce has begun a review of certain recently issued agency actions, including the Secretary’s prohibitions regarding the WeChat mobile application at issue in this appeal,” the administration filing in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reads.

“In relation to those prohibitions, the Department plans to conduct an evaluation of the underlying record justifying those prohibitions.”
