Trump-era bans against TikTok and WeChat were lifted Monday. The U.S. Commerce Department said it was rescinding a list of prohibited transactions with TikTok and WeChat that was put in place in September, as then-President Trump looked to block new U.S. downloads of both Chinese-owned apps and other transactions that would've effectively banned the use of either app in the U.S. This is the latest reversal under the new Biden Administration. Earlier this month, President Biden withdrew a series of Trump executive orders that sought to block TikTok and WeChat and ordered the Commerce Department to review national security concerns posed by the two apps and others. The Commerce Department was given 120 days to monitor software apps like TikTok and make recommendations on how to protect U.S. data acquired or accessible by companies that are controlled by foreign adversaries. A separate U.S. national security review of TikTok, which was launched in 2019, still remains active.

Western powers hit Belarus with a wave of new sanctions on Monday in a coordinated response to Minsk's forced landing of a Ryanair plane last month to arrest a journalist on board, an act that is set to prompt further economic sanctions.
