Trump reportedly said he wanted to pull the US from NATO multiple times last year

U.S. President Donald Trump privately said several times last year that he wanted to withdraw his country from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, The New York Times reported on Monday.

The newspaper’s findings, which cited unnamed senior administration officials, are likely to resurface worries of a breakdown in the military alliance that was created in 1949 by the United States, Canada and some European nations.

Those concerns were first sparked last year when the U.S. leader hinted that he could leave the 29-member defense bloc without Congressional approval. At the time, Trump was pushing member countries to increase spending. Since then, however, the Republican has backtracked on that threat.

After a chaotic NATO meeting in July 2018, Trump claimed that allies had committed to his request and said that U.S. withdrawal from the organization would be “unnecessary.”

Responding to the New York Times’ report, a White House official repeated some of Trump’s remarks from July when the president said Washington’s commitment to NATO is “very strong” and the alliance is “very important.” The White House did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment, which was sent outside office hours.

As the Times notes, a weakened NATO is thought to be a major geopolitical goal of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump’s dislike for participation in international organizations is well known to global leaders by now. Early in his White House tenure, the president withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate accord and a massive Pacific trade pact.

For more details, see the report from The New York Times.

Blue Apron shares skyrocket after company says it will be profitable in 2019

Shares of meal-kit service Blue Apron soared 28 percent Tuesday after the company said that it believes it will be profitable in 2019.

The company’s stock, which has a market value of $230 million, had recently been trading below $1. At one point it fell as low as 65 cents. If the stock had remained below the dollar benchmark it would have been in danger of being delisted by the New York Stock Exchange. Since its initial public offering in June 2017, the stock has dropped by 88 percent. Tuesday’s bump boosted its stock price as high as $1.35.

When the e-commerce company announces its earnings on Jan. 31, it said that it plans to reaffirm its confidence in being profitable during both the first quarter of 2019 and the full fiscal year.

To help lagging sales, Blue Apron has announced a number of partnerships. Last month, it launched a partnership with WW, formerly known as Weight Watchers, to bring healthy meals to consumers. The company said Tuesday that it has seen a “favorable consumer response” as a result of that partnership. The company also partnered with Jet.com, which is owned by Walmart, to deliver its meals across New York City.

The company also teased that it would share more innovations on its earnings call, including a new offering for brick-and-mortar stores.

Blue Apron has struggled to keep its subscriber numbers up in a crowded field of meal kit options. Users of meal kits are notorious for using deals to join a service and then quickly dropping out. This has led to high marketing costs as the companies try to build loyalty.

To rein in its costs, Blue Apron has recently laid off staff.

Canada's Canopy Growth shares jump 11% on deal to develop industrial hemp farms in New York

Canopy Growth has been granted a license by New York State to process and produce hemp with the help of efforts by Governor Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Senator Charles Schumer.

Canopy Growth hopes to establish large-scale production capabilities focused on hemp extraction and product manufacturing within the United States. Depending on Board approval of a specific site, Canopy plans to invest between $100 million and $150 million in its New York operations, “capable of producing tons of hemp” on an annual basis.

The company is currently evaluating a number of sites in the Southern Tier of New York, which will become one of its first extraction and processing facilities outside Canada. Management hopes to announce the specific location within 100 days.

Canopy shares jumped 11 percent after the announcement and finished Monday’s session at $42.49.

The company said in a press release that Cuomo’s office helped create the Hemp Research Pilot Program, while Schumer’s was “instrumental” in the passage of the recent U.S. farm bill, that allows growers to produce hemp as an agricultural commodity.

Canopy Growth’s investment in the Southern Tier “is a true win-win for Canopy Growth, who will be positioned at the forefront of Upstate New York’s industrial hemp revolution, and for the Southern Tier’s economy and farmers, which will receive a major shot in the arm in new good-paying jobs,” Senator Schumer said in the release.

The company will source hemp exclusively from American farmers for its American operations once functional. The move will also bring Canopy closer to Constellation Brands, the brewing giant that owns Corona beer and which recently made a $4 billion strategic investment in the cannabis company.

Consumers are increasingly interested in CBD, a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants thought to help with a range of conditions, such as anxiety, sleep disorders and inflammation.

Recreational use of cannabis in Canada became legal Oct. 17, though each of the country’s 10 provinces will be able to regulate the market within their jurisdiction independent of Ottawa. Marijuana use is still illegal in the United States at the federal level, though many states have passed laws legalizing the use of cannabis for medical or recreational purposes.

Kamala Harris preaches unity, hits out at Trump's border wall fight

Senator Kamala Harris outlined her vision for a unified America while promoting her new book in New York City, with the California Democrat criticizing President Donald Trump over his insistence on erecting a wall along the Southern U.S. border.

The book and cross-country promotional tour comes as the 54-year-old crafts an image as a contender for higher office. Harris is widely expected to announce a 2020 presidential bid in what is shaping up to be a crowded field of fellow Democrats.

Moments after Harris walked on stage at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, an audience member shouted “Forty six!,” a reference to the next U.S. president. The raucous applause from the sold-out crowd was a sign of enthusiasm for her potential candidacy.

“The vast majority of us have so much more in common than what separates us,” Harris said, repeating a line that also appears in her book, “The Truths We Hold: An American Journey.” Released on Tuesday, the book intertwines stories from Harris’s upbringing and personal life with policy proposals that could form the foundation of a campaign.

On Friday, Harris sounded off on a wide array of potential campaign themes. She called the war on drugs “ineffective” and railed against the country’s cash bail system that disproportionately affects the poor as “not reflective of a system of justice.” She also touted the 2017 bill she introduced with Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to dis-incentivize states from using cash bail, as evidence of her bipartisan deal-making skills.

The thrust of Harris’ book and remarks in New York addressed finding commonality among diversity, a potential 2020 campaign rallying cry in a political climate that’s deeply fractured. However, she wasted little time in hitting out at Trump for the impasse over border security that’s forced a government shutdown that’s lasted three weeks.

Harris derided President Trump’s proposed border wall as a “vanity project” as the government’s temporary closure broke the record for the longest ever, and even linked it to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The fight over the wall is a “distraction from the fact that you’ve got Mueller investigating” people close to Trump, Harris told the audience.

Job prospects are soaring in New York City, thanks to Amazon HQ2 and Google's expansion plans

The job market in the Big Apple appears hotter than ever. With unemployment at record lows, the battle for talent is raging as tech giants, including Amazon and Google, lay plans to open new or expanded operations in Manhattan and Long Island City.

Projects include the new $5 billion Amazon headquarters in Long Island City, Google’s new $1 billion 1.7-million-sq-ft campus in Hudson Square and a new office complex at Chelsea Market. According to a survey by Tech:NYC and Accenture, 80 percent of companies in New York City said they planned to hire more tech talent in 2018 than the year before.

The trend is spurring demand for tech talent as well as for other support services, such as advertising, fintech, accounting, compliance and more. Headhunters say that although direct impact has yet to be seen, the expansion plans bode well for New York City’s job market.

“Even though New York is one of the most expensive markets in the country, it offers huge advantages for companies,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at online jobs site Indeed.com.

“It is the largest labor market in the country, and it’s a fairly diversified market,” he said, noting that New York City also offers a fairly broad mix of both employers and workers in many industries and occupations. For many companies, that makes it worthwhile to pay the high real estate and labor costs to be in New York.

The hiring spree will make an already tight job market even tighter. Last month the New York Department of Labor said seasonally adjusted unemployment fell to 3.9 percent in November. That’s the lowest level since the department started keeping records in 1976. Not only that, but New York State’s private-sector job count rose to an all-time high of 9.75 million.

In a first, United deploys largest Dreamliners in battle for lucrative cross-country travelers

The Boeing 787-10 can fly for more than 6,400 miles without needing to refuel. United Airlines is deploying it for a route that’s less than half as long.

United this week debuted its brand-new Boeing 787-10, the largest of the Dreamliner jets, on one of its flights between Newark and Los Angeles. It hopes that serving the route with the 787, which airlines more commonly use on long international flights, will give it a leg up in the battle for lucrative cross-country travelers. In February, it will start offering a flight between Newark and San Francisco using another 787-10. The airline ordered 14 of the planes. Others will be used on routes to Europe.

In United’s favor, the new plane is more fuel efficient and holds more passengers than most other planes it flies cross-country.

Airlines have been racing to improve cross-country service, going after high-paying business travelers in big cities like Boston, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.

Delta Air Lines, for example, started offering its Delta One cabins on domestic routes last April, including from Boston to Los Angeles, and New York to Los Angeles, San Diego and Seattle. The cabins feature lie-flat beds and Tumi amenities kits. Travelers also can book meals ahead of time. JetBlue Airways has expanded its Mint business-class service to four West Coast cities from Boston and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. American Airlines operates a three-class cabin — first, business and coach — on its transcontinental service between New York and San Francisco and New York to Los Angeles. It’s adding more flights with that configuration from Boston to Los Angeles this spring.

So why is United starting with Los Angeles?

Los Angeles International Airport is the most competitive of all large U.S. airports — no single carrier has more than 18 percent of the seats flown, according to consulting firm ICF. By comparison, American Airlines has 90 percent of the capacity in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“It’s a very valuable route, one of the only routes in the country where there is meaningful paid first-class demand,” said Samuel Engel, head of the aviation practice at ICF. He estimates that revenue per passenger on flights from New York to Los Angeles and San Francisco and similar routes from Boston are 5 to 10 percent higher than others of a similar distance.

Who is MacKenzie Bezos? She could soon be one of the richest women in the world

Jeff Bezos’ wife would rather have a child with 9 fingers than one without this skill 8:30 AM ET Tue, 21 Nov 2017 | 00:47

MacKenzie grew up in San Francisco, where her father worked as a financial planner. She earned an English degree at Princeton University in 1992 (roughly six years after Jeff graduated from the same school), and she first met her future husband later that same year. She’d moved to New York City in search of a job and she met Jeff when he interviewed her for a job at the hedge fund where he was working, D.E. Shaw.

The two ended up with offices next to one another and MacKenzie soon became enamored with Bezos and his loud, distinctive laugh. “My office was next door to his, and all day long I listened to that fabulous laugh,” she told Vogue in a 2013 interview. “How could you not fall in love with that laugh?”

MacKenzie kicked things off with Bezos by asking him out to lunch and, after dating for only three months, they were engaged. Another three months later, they got married. That was 1993 and MacKenzie was only 23, while Jeff was 29.

Not long after, Jeff had the idea that would become Amazon.com. “I told my wife MacKenzie that I wanted to quit my job and go do this crazy thing that probably wouldn’t work since most startups don’t, and I wasn’t sure what would happen after that,” Jeff said in a 2010 address at his alma mater, Princeton.

MacKenzie told him to go for it and in 1994 the couple moved from New York to Seattle, with Jeff writing a business plan for his online bookstore on the cross-country drive. He launched the company out of their garage that summer.

When Vogue asked Jeff in 2013 about what drew him to MacKenzie, the billionaire listed a few of her attributes while also joking about the added insight he gained from interviewing her for a job. “I think my wife is resourceful, smart, brainy, and hot, but I had the good fortune of having seen her résumé before I met her, so I knew exactly what her SATs were,” he said.

While Jeff built Amazon into an e-commerce behemoth that briefly reached a $1 trillion valuation in 2018, MacKenzie rediscovered a passion for writing that she had developed in college, where she studied fiction under Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison. (Morrison told Vogue that MacKenzie was “one of the best students I’ve ever had in my creative-writing classes.”)

MacKenzie is the author of two novels: “The Testing of Luther Albright,” published in 2005, and 2013’s “Traps.” The New York Times called the first of those two novels, which won an American Book Award in 2006, a “quietly absorbing first novel” about “an emotionally repressed husband and father.” (Though Amazon has its own book publishing imprint, MacKenzie’s novels were published by Fourth Estate and Knopf, respectively. They are among the titles sold on Amazon.)

MacKenzie took roughly a decade to write her first book, she told Vogue in 2013, partially because she wanted to spend more time with her children (she gave birth to the first of the couple’s four children in 2000), which took time out of her writing schedule. In 2013, she said she had gone as far as renting a one-bedroom apartment near the Bezos’ Washington home where she could spend time writing uninterrupted.

In addition to her writing career, MacKenzie also founded the anti-bullying organization Bystander Revolution in 2014. She serves as executive director of the organization, which says it’s “ultimate goal is the discussion and spread of simple habits of kindness, courage, and inclusion.” The organization’s website aims to offer solutions to bullying along with suggestions for how the average person can defuse situations involving bullying.

The organization has worked with celebrities like Monica Lewinsky, actress Lily Collins, and NFL star Tom Brady to produce anti-bullying videos.

“A lot of the conventional wisdom about bullying is that it is a cultural norm that can’t be overcome,” MacKenzie said in 2015. “But there are so many small things an individual can do to help that have a huge impact.”

Meanwhile, in 2018, Jeff and MacKenzie announced their pledge to donate $2 billion to a new philanthropic fund that will go toward helping homeless families and funding preschools in underserved communities. The move followed criticism of Jeff Bezos for what had been a lack of philanthropic activities. And, while Jeff and MacKenzie are splitting up, their announcement still left room for them to work together in the future on projects like the philanthropic fund.

The couple described their relationship going forward this way: “We also see wonderful futures ahead as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures.”

Google plans to lease office space in Los Angeles

Google is expanding in L.A., the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. The company plans to lease office space from what is now a mall in West Los Angeles, according to the Journal.

The move is the latest office expansion for Google, which just last month announced a $1 billion investment in a new office in New York City. Amazon and Apple have also been expanding their presence outside of the tech hubs of Silicon Valley and Seattle, with Amazon selecting New York City and Northern Viriginia. as the dual-sites of its new “headquarters” and Apple announcing a new campus in Austin.

The space at Westside Pavilion will reportedly be redeveloped into a 584,000 square-foot campus, according to the Journal, citing property owners Hudson Pacific Properties and Macerich. Google’s 14-year lease would begin after construction is completed on the “One Westside” construction, scheduled to end in 2022.

Natalya Veselnitskaya, attorney at Trump Tower meeting, charged

But that meeting remains a subject of investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

And an issue that Veselnitskaya raised at the Trump Tower meeting is closely related to the scheme that led to the civil case, U.S. vs. Prevezon Holdings, in which she is accused of acting criminally as a lawyer.

In that civil case, Veselnitskaya was representing defendants accused of an “elaborate” $230 million tax refund fraud scheme, according to authorities.

The federal government filed the case in 2013 in an effort to recover several million dollars worth of property, primarily comprised of New York real estate, which was allegedly obtained to launder a portion of the money swindled in the tax refund scheme.

That scheme was uncovered by a Russian accountant named Sergei Magnitsky, who was arrested after helping report the fraud to Russian authorities.

Magnitsky’s death in custody led to passage of a 2012 U.S. law, the Magnitsky Act, which imposes sanctions on Russians believed to be responsible for his death.

At the Trump Tower meeting, Veselnitskaya urged Trump campaign officials to undo the Magnitsky Act sanctions.

In the Prevezon case, she submitted a declaration that purported to have “been independently drafted by the Russian government,” and which supposedly exonerated her clients, prosecutors said.

But Veselnitskaya is accused of hiding from the judge in the case that she had “participated in drafting those supposed exculpatory findings in secret cooperation with a senior Russian prosecutor,” according to federal prosecutors.

Veselnitskaya attended a court hearing for an appeal of the money laundering case on the same day, June 9, 2016, that she went to Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York for the sit-down with people close to Trump.

Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., has said that he took the meeting with Veselnitskaya after being told that she was willing to share dirt on Clinton.
