Putin Tells Diplomats He Made Trump a New Offer on Ukraine at Their Summit

Putin Tells Diplomats He Made Trump a New Offer on Ukraine at Their SummitVladimir Putin told Russian diplomats that he made a proposal to Donald Trump at their summit this week to hold a referendum to help resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but agreed not to disclose the plan publicly so the U.S. president could consider it, according to two people who attended Putin’s closed-door speech on Thursday. Details of what the two leaders discussed in their summit in Helsinki, Finland, remain scarce, with much of the description so far coming from Russia. While Putin portrayed the Ukraine offer as a sign he’s seeking to bring the four-year-old crisis to an end, a referendum is likely to be a hard sell with Ukraine and its backers in Europe, who remain committed to an 2015 European-brokered truce deal for the Donbas region, parts of which are controlled by Russian-backed separatists.

Boeing wins air show as Airbus gets boost from AirAsia

Boeing wins air show as Airbus gets boost from AirAsiaBoeing (BA.N) claimed victory on Thursday after outselling rival Airbus (AIR.PA) at this week's Farnborough Airshow, where the world's largest planemakers repeated last year's comparable haul of around 900 orders with the help of leasing industry demand. The world's largest planemaker said it had won 528 orders and commitments at the event in southern England, while Airbus reported 431 new deals, or 371 excluding the recently acquired Bombardier CSeries, now rebranded A220. Airbus blamed the incognito wave on trade tensions that had made some firms nervous about appearing to side with the United States or other economic powers amid heated trade rhetoric.

Trump Blasts Powell’s Rate Hikes, Trespassing on Fed’s Independence

Trump Blasts Powell’s Rate Hikes, Trespassing on Fed’s IndependencePresident Donald Trump criticized the Federal Reserve’s interest-rate increases, breaking with more than two decades of White House tradition of avoiding comments on monetary policy out of respect for the independence of the U.S. central bank. “I’m not thrilled” the Fed is raising borrowing costs and potentially slowing the economy, he said in an interview with CNBC broadcast Thursday. The Fed has raised interest rates five times since Trump took office in January 2017, with two of those coming this year under Chairman Jerome Powell, the president’s pick to replace Janet Yellen.
