Yes you read it right and yes it’s unusual. According to Reuters, Senator Clinton and another Senator have said they intend to introduce legislation that would ban companies owned or controlled by foreign governments from obtaining control of U.S. port operations. Specifically the bill would be in response to a proposed purchase of P & O by Dubai Ports World. Dubai Ports World is owned by the Dubai Government which is part of the United Arab Emirates.
So what do I agree with? I agree with the notion that port operations in the U.S. should not be under the control of any foreign government, especially not an Arab government. Truly this seems like a no brainer. Perhaps that’s why Hillary gets it.
