Trump blocks Qualcomm takeover by Broadcom

US President Donald Trump has blocked a planned takeover of chipmaker Qualcomm by its Singapore-based rival Broadcom. His order cited "credible evidence" that the proposed $140bn (lb100bn) takeover "threatens to impair the national security of the US". The deal would have created the world's third-largest maker of microchips, behind Intel and Samsung. The sector is in a race to develop chips for the latest 5G wireless technology and Qualcomm is considered to be a leader in this field.
