Trump Blocks Broadcom’s Bid for Qualcomm (Audio)

(Bloomberg) — Matt Larson, Bloomberg Intelligence litigation analyst, discusses why President Trump blocked Broadcom’s hostile takeover bid for Qualcomm, citing national security concerns. Plus, Richard Briffault, a professor at Columbia Law School, discusses the special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional district, which pits Republican Rick Saccone against up-and-coming Democrat Conor Lamb, who has the chance to retake what was once a solidly republican district. The election is further complicated by Pennsylvania’s congressional voting map, which is due to be redrawn before the end of the year.
