UK PM Johnson to tell Trump to de-escalate trade tensions

Also on Sunday, Johnson will meet European Council President Donald Tusk, who earlier this week refused the former's proposal to scrap the backstop plan for the Irish border. "I still hope that Prime Minster Johnson will not like to go down in history as 'Mr.no-deal, '" he said.

On a recent visit to London, U.S. national security advisor John Bolton said the U.S. would enthusiastically support a no-deal Brexit should Prime Minister Boris Johnson pursue it, adding that Washington would be ready to work fast on a free trade agreement. In the event of a no-deal Brexit, the United Kingdom would lose this tariff-free access and would have to trade under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.

However, on his first foreign trip as prime minister last week, the response from European Union heavyweights Germany and France was firm: The withdrawal agreement will not be changed much.

They both agreed to give Mr Johnson time to find an alternative to the Irish backstop, granting him 30 days to find a solution. Mr Johnson was foreign minister from 2016 to previous year.

The source said Johnson would not make the mistake of thinking Merkel alone could deliver a new deal for Britain, criticizing previous governments for being too keen on the idea that the German chancellor could be Britain's "savior".

HP CEO Dion Weisler to step down in November; shares slide
HP's PC unit delivered revenue growth of 3% as commercial revenue gains of 10% were offset by a decrease of 11% in consumer units. The company's Printing unit saw revenue fall 5 per cent year-on-year while achieving 15.6 per cent operating margin.

Trump says he is eager to meet Johnson, a fellow maverick who enjoys his approval. In addition Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President Donald Trump will attend the summit.

The day before, China made a decision to impose 10 percent and 5 percent tariffs on $75 billion worth of imported American goods, while US President Donald Trump responded by saying that the US would increase tariffs against China even more, Trend reports citing Sputnik.

They are both divisive figures in their respective countries and enjoy provoking their opponents.

Success on the worldwide stage would allow Johnson to assert his leadership on the domestic front, Maddox said, while a disappointing turn at Biarritz could leave him weakened as he prepares to face a likely vote of no confidence after parliament returns on September 3.
