G-7 summit set to end without an agreement for the first time in history

The Group of Seven (G-7) summit is set to end without a joint communique for the first time in its 44-year history, after French President Emmanuel Macron decided to abandon the tradition citing “a very deep crisis of democracy.” It will be the first time since meetings began in 1975 that the forum has failed to end a summit without an agreed statement, laying bare the deepening rift between heads of state from seven of the world’s largest economies. Speaking to reporters ahead of the G-7 meeting at a news conference in Paris on Wednesday, Macron said an attempt to produce a joint communique would most likely be a “pointless” exercise. He referenced President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from a landmark climate agreement restricting global efforts to cut carbon as one example of why it would be difficult to display a united front.

The annual summit brings together the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States. It will be held in the seaside town of Biarritz in southwest France from Saturday through to Monday. Securing an agreement at the annual summit has proved increasingly difficult in recent years, partly because the U.S. president has expressed a preference for bilateral trade pacts over multilateral agreements. “It is impossible to predict what the U.S. will do — we might be in for some surprises from Trump,” Agathe Demarais, global forecasting director at the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), told CNBC via telephone. “I’m not sure what he is going to do, maybe Trump doesn’t know either,” Demarais said, citing the U.S. as a notable exception in its approach to handling disputes.

France will want to avoid another ‘G-6+1 summit’

Last year, at the G-7 summit in Ottawa, Canada, Trump threw typically stage-managed proceedings into disarray. The U.S. president made an early exit from the meeting, refused to sign the collective final statement and engaged in personal insults over trade with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The summit appeared to demonstrate fraying ties between the U.S. and its traditional allies, with one photo seemingly summing up divisions in the room. The image, which appeared on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Instagram account, showed world leaders gathered around Merkel on one side of a table, while a seated Trump looked on with his arms folded.

From a French perspective, the hosts will “want to try to manage this G-7 so it doesn’t turn into another embarrassing mess with everyone arguing with each other,” Constantine Fraser, European political analyst at the TS Lombard research group, told CNBC via telephone. “I think it is quite possible” there will be no joint communique at the end of this year’s summit, Fraser said, before adding the statement was now little more than an “increasingly desperate fig leaf.” “The G-7 is no longer for the world’s richest countries to show a united front… And the lack of a joint communique is a recognition of where we are at,” Fraser said. French media dubbed last year’s gathering in Ottawa as the “G-6+1 summit,” citing Washington’s refusal to sign the final statement.

Tech tax

Alongside environment and trade, analysts expect Brexit, inequality, the possible reinstatement of Russia and universal taxation on digital giants to dominate proceedings. Late last month, Trump warned he “might” slap tariffs on French wine in response to the country’s new tax affecting technology companies. “This is a very, very contentious topic. France wants to impose this digital tax but the problem is most digital giants are American,” the EIU’s Demarais said.

US tech firms will likely influence decision on whether Huawei's license will be extended, research firm says

U.S. President Donald Trump is set to decide Monday on whether to extend a temporary agreement allowing Huawei to do business in the U.S. — and Washington’s decision will likely be influenced by American tech firms, according to research firm International Data Corporation.

The U.S. Commerce Department placed the Chinese tech giant on a blacklist — the so-called Entity List — in May, preventing American companies from selling or transferring technology to Huawei unless they were granted a special license. Days later, the U.S. government eased some of those restrictions for 90 days. That temporary reprieve is set to end on Monday.

According to Reuters and the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. is going to extend the license by another 90 days that will allow Huawei to continue buying parts from American companies.

“This is about, in my opinion, as much about the pressure that U.S. components suppliers are exerting on the government as opposed to say punishing Huawei,” Crawford Del Prete, president at IDC, told CNBC’s “Squawk Box ” on Monday.

Apple software hints at September 10 announcement for the next iPhone

A girl reacts as she tries an iPhone X at the Apple Omotesando store on November 3, 2017 in Tokyo, Japan.

The date for Apple’s newest iPhone announcement may be hidden in its latest beta release of its new operating system.

Apple released its newest iOS 13 beta to developers on Thursday with what some believe is a clue to its iPhone announcement date. The operating system contained an asset called “HoldForRelease” that showed a home screen of an iPhone with the calendar date set to September 10, 9to5Mac reported. Apple has held its fall press event around this time in September for the past four years, the site previously noted.

Analysts don’t expect the so-called iPhone 11 to be a huge change from previous models. Barclays semiconductor analysts wrote in May that they anticipate Apple’s 2019 iPhones will offer “relatively few design changes” while the more substantial update, including features like 5G capability, will come in 2020.

J.P. Morgan Chase analysts agreed that major updates would come in 2020 in a July note.

“Our expectations include all three Sep-2020 iPhones (5.4″/6.1″/6.7″ screen sizes) will adopt OLED displays and 5G baseband modems (with support for mmWave frequencies), and at least two of the three models adopting world facing 3D Sensing (Time of Flight) driving industry leading AR/VR capabilities which can be leveraged by custom built applications (including games),” analyst Samik Chatterjee wrote.

Apple’s iPhone business has struggled with trends such as weakness in the Chinese economy and the fact that customers keep their devices longer than they used to before upgrading. For Apple’s third fiscal quarter, iPhone revenues made up 48% of total revenue. It was the first time the segment made up less than half of all revenues since 2012.

Still, Apple has found new areas of growth such as wearables, like the Apple Watch and HomePods, and digital services, like App Store sales, Apple Music subscriptions and iCloud storage.

The Trump administration also alleviated any worries that the iPhone would be subject to new Chinese tariffs that were originally set to go into effect on Sept. 1. The office of the U.S. Trade Representative said this week that the tariffs would be pushed back to December, sending Apple shares up 4% on Tuesday.

An Apple spokesperson was not immediately available to comment.

John Hickenlooper is reportedly set to drop out of the Democratic presidential primary on Thursday

John Hickenlooper, former governor of Colorado, speaks at the Iowa State Fair in Iowa, U.S., on August 10, 2019.

John Hickenlooper will drop out of the Democratic presidential primary on Thursday, according to a Democrat close to him.

The two-term former Colorado governor, who ran as a moderate warning of the perils of extreme partisanship, struggled with fundraising and low polling numbers. His planned departure from the 2020 race was confirmed Wednesday night by a Democrat who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly before the announcement and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Hickenlooper, 67, is not expected to announce a decision Thursday on whether he will run for Senate in Colorado, though he has been discussing the possibility with advisers. Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, up for reelection in 2020, is considered one of the most vulnerable senators in the country because of Colorado’s shift to the left.

Hickenlooper became a political giant in Colorado for his quirky, consensus-driven and unscripted approach to politics.

He once jumped out of a plane to sell a ballot measure to increase state spending and won two statewide elections in a purple state during Republican wave years. He was previously the mayor of Denver.

He launched his longshot White House bid in March, promising to unite the country. Instead, he quickly became a political punch line.

Shortly before taking his first trip to Iowa as a candidate, Hickenlooper, who became a multimillionaire founding a series of brewpubs, balked at calling himself a capitalist on national television.

Then, at a CNN town hall, he recounted how he once took his mother to see a pornographic movie. With the campaign struggling to raise money, his staff urged Hickenlooper to instead challenge Gardner. But Hickenlooper stayed in and hired another group of staffers in a last-ditch effort to turn around his campaign.

Positioning himself as a common-sense candidate who couldn’t be labeled a socialist by Republicans, Hickenlooper couldn’t make his voice heard in the crowded Democratic presidential field, which includes nearly two dozen candidates. It didn’t help that, by Hickenlooper’s own admission, he’s a mediocre debater and erratic public speaker.

In the end, he couldn’t even scrape together enough money for many of his trademark quirky ads, only launching one in which avid beer drinkers toast Hickenlooper by comparing him to favorite brews.

Hickenlooper softened his denials of interest in the Senate in recent weeks as his campaign finances dwindled and pressure increased from other Democrats. He started telling people he’d make a decision by the end of this week.

It’s unclear whether Hickenlooper plans to run against Gardner, whom national Democrats have urged him to take on since last year. He’s repeatedly said he’s not interested in the Senate and prefers an executive position.

But if Hickenlooper did run against Gardner, he’d first have to get through another crowded Democratic primary field. Numerous Colorado Democrats have launched primary bids for Gardner’s seat, and many have indicated they’d stay in the race, even if Hickenlooper enters the contest.

Hickenlooper isn’t the first Democratic hopeful to end his 2020 presidential bid. U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell of California announced his departure in July.
