President Barack Obama issued an order Friday blocking Chinese firms from purchasing several US wind farms, saying the acquisition posed a threat to the country’s national security.

There was credible evidence that the corporation linked to Chinese nationals “might take action that threatens to impair the national security of the United States,” Obama said in his order.
