This is the wording in the EO:

The following actions shall be prohibited beginning 45 days after the date of this order, to the extent permitted under applicable law: any transaction that is related to WeChat by any person, or with respect to any property, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, with Tencent Holdings Ltd. (a.k.a. Tngxn Knggǔ Yǒuxin Gōngsī), Shenzhen, China, or any subsidiary of that entity, as identified by the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) under section 1(c) of this order.

That clause is extremely tortured so maybe the reading in the tweet above is supported, or maybe not? I am not sure I read an "AND ALSO" out of that

Edit: Ok so I can see the bracketing out of [transaction related to WeChat] by [person/property in US jurisdiction] with [Tencent]

Weird that everyone started believing a tweet immediately without actually doing any research on their own

Yes, this is almost certainly the legal interpretation that the trump administration will argue for. This order doesn't appear to actually ban all transactions with tencent.

Sorry to undo the effort of paying a domestic abuser $10 to own this poster, but I am going to lose my dang mind if I keep seeing multiple posters who appear to be Baloogan.

With love,

Lame. They should have gone all out.
