National Security and the potential of a Monopoly have always spearheaded reasons of failures of a merger/takeover and rightfully so. Broadcom is a beast and I don’t there is a doubt that this business deal would be profitable for both parties and manufacturing communities in both Singapore and the USA, but a foreign entity whose board members are non citizens/residents wouldn’t place the USA first. Not now or ever!
