Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Trump admin blocks Chinese buyer from taking over US tech firm”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Citing national security concerns, President Trump on Wednesday blocked a Chinese-backed investor from buying Lattice Semiconductor Corp. — only the fourth time a president has stopped a foreign takeover in 27 years.

The would-be buyer, Canyon Bridge Capital Partners LLC, is a private-equity firm backed by a Chinese state-owned asset manager, Bloomberg reported.

The Trump administration has maintained the US’s tough stance against Chinese takeovers of American businesses even as it seeks the country’s help to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis.

Other Chinese deals under review include MoneyGram International Inc.’s proposed sale to Ant Financial, the financial-services giant controlled by Chinese billionaire Jack Ma.
