    If this ends up happening, I bet the Raspberry Pi line will either end or the Foundation will have to source chips from some other company.

    Looks like Mr trump has signed an executive order blocking Broadcom from taking over Qualcomm on grounds of national security.

    Why would that make any difference, Broadcom provide the chips and they were aquired by Hock Tan well over 2 years ago, I'm surprised the Pi chips aren't already gone considering the amount of profit margin Tan expects per product line.

    's fantastic PR, and the chips themselves are pretty cheap to make.
