US President Donald Trump issued an order on Monday prohibiting Broadcom proposed takeover of Qualcomm on grounds of national security.

Qualcomm has rebuffed Broadcom's $117bn takeover offer, which is under investigation by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a multi-agency panel led by the Treasury Department that reviews national security implications when foreign entities take over US corporations.
