From the Document: "On May 1, 2020, President Trump issued Executive Order (E.O.) 13920, titled 'Securing the United States Bulk-Power System.' The E.O. states that it is protecting 'the security, integrity, and reliability of bulk-power system electric equipment used in the United States' from 'foreign adversaries' who are creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in the bulk-power system (BPS). In the E.O., the President 'declared a national emergency with respect to the threat' to the U.S. bulk-power system, with the goal of limiting the acquisition or use of 'equipment designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied by' entities subject to the control of foreign adversaries."
