  • The North had "no intention" to sit down with the "tricky US" and would not return to talks "before the complete and irrevocable withdrawal of its hostile policy".

    The Fed announced that they met “to discuss the economy, growth, employment and inflation.”

    The statement on Monday by Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan is the latest call by North Korea for US concessions ahead of an end-of-year deadline set by Kim Jong Un for the Trump administration to offer mutually acceptable terms for a deal to salvage nuclear diplomacy. Trump in a tweet urged Kim Jong Un to “act quickly, get the deal done” and hinted at another summit.

    Seven of the 11 major S&P 500 sectors were lower, with the energy sector leading declines after a fall in oil prices.

    William Taylor, the acting ambassador to Ukraine, described his shock when he was informed that the President through acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney had ordered a hold on assistance to Ukraine on July 18.

    Having survived special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Trump now faces potential removal from office for pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, a leading candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. The hearings begin on Wednesday in the House Intelligence Committee.

    Trump was particularly agitated that the rest of the world, particularly developing countries such as China and India, had corralled Washington into the Paris Accord on climate change and put the onus on the US to clean up the planet while themselves not doing much. The Accord, Trump claimed, would have done "trillions and trillions of dollars of destruction" to the US.

    The Commerce Ministry’s remarks showed a sizeable distance still separates the Washington and Beijing dispute Trump's announcement last month that they had reached a “phase one” deal. Beijing and Washington have been embroiled in an 18-month trade war which has weighed on the global economy, and two sides have slapped punitive tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars in two-way trade.

    Trump is accused by Democrats in the House of Representatives of abusing his power by using US military aid to pressure Kiev into opening an investigation into Biden and his son Hunter, who served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company. Trump, who maintains he did nothing wrong, dismissed the impeachment inquiry and termed it as a "witch hunt."
