President Trump's efforts to reset the perimeters for global trade and manufacturing has already prompted many companies to move their production away from China.

U.S. companies, long accustomed to using China as the world’s workshop, are now looking for alternatives as Beijing is showing growing signs also of clamping down on American corporations.

Last month, Trump made plans to prohibit US telecom firms from using equipment produced by telecom companies that pose a “national security risk,” possibly aimed at China’s Huawei.

The executive order could be signed as early as this week, but it does not stipulate the companies or countries that fall under the “national security risks.”

The bill is allegedly designed to target Huawei and Chinese telecoms in general, according to Reuters.

The bill will invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, permitting the president jurisdiction over interstate commerce in case of an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to the “national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States,” according to the officials.
