Trump blocks Broadcom's attempted takeover of Qualcomm

        Broadcom's hopes of acquiring Qualcomm might have been quashed
        for good. President Trump has issued an order blocking
        Broadcom's proposed takeover and anything "substantially
        equivalent" to it over concerns that it might "impair the
        national security" of the country. The order also disqualifies
        all 15 of Broadcom's proposed directors for Qualcomm. The move
        follows a letter from the Committee on Foreign Investment in
        the US warning the companies that it believed the takeover
        would pose too great a security risk.
