“This is manifestly an abuse of the limited discretion the law gives the president” to respond to foreign economic threats, said Paul Rosenzweig, a homeland security official during the George W. Bush administration.


“Everyone who works in the field knows that all parts of the supply chain are at risk — it’s just a question of how much and how you try to mitigate it,” said Rosenzweig, now a senior fellow with the R Street Institute, a policy group that advocates free markets. “Given the policy, this is a license to exclude anyone that the Commerce Department thinks is a risky actor — and that could be anyone.”
