US federal and government agencies will most likely not be able to buy and use unmanned aerial vehicles produced abroad as well as drones made up of foreign components. The Trump administration is already working on a special executive order. The implementation of the order at the state level is connected with the fears of the American authorities regarding confidential information that may be transmitted to antagonistic countries. The order also mentions menaces posed by China.

Thus, the USA government wants to make an emphasis on the use of UAVs made in the USA. If the order comes into force, the federal departments will have exactly a month to carry out the order.
