Trump administration backs bills to toughen foreign investment rules

The legislation would broaden the government's power to stop foreign purchases of US firms by strengthening the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).
The bills "would achieve the twin aims of protecting national security and preserving the longstanding United States open investment policy," the White House said.
