G20 opens under assault from Trump on collective action

G20 powers open two days of summit talks in crisis-hit Argentina on Friday after a stormy buildup dominated by US President Donald Trump’s consensus-bucking crusade to realign world trade.

Shortly before the summit kicks off, Trump’s “America First” charge will bear fruit with the signing in Buenos Aires of a successor to the North American free trade pact NAFTA. The revamped accord, called the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), looks a lot like the one it replaces. But enough has been tweaked for Trump to declare victory on behalf of the US workers he claims were cheated by NAFTA.

Saudi crown prince meets India’s Modi in Argentina, plans to ramp up investments

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and told him about plans to scale up investments in India’s tech, farm and energy sectors, an Indian official and the Saudi news agency (SPA) said on Friday.

The two leaders, who are in Argentina for the G20 summit, met in the prince’s residence in Buenos Aires and discussed Saudi Arabia’s readiness to supply India with oil and petroleum products.

The Saudi prince told Modi he would soon be finalizing an initial investment in India’s National Investment and Infrastructure Fund, a quasi-sovereign wealth fund, to help accelerate the building of ports, highways and other projects, a top Indian diplomat said. [REUTERS]

Trump snubs Putin, cancels G20 meeting over Ukraine President Trump called off Saturday’s bilateral with President Vladimir Putin at the G20, minutes after saying it would “probably” still happen despite Russia’s seizure of three Ukrainian ships.

“I look forward to a meaningful Summit again as soon as this situation is resolved!” Trump tweeted, calling on Russia to return the ships and their detained crews.

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko retweeted Trump’s change of mind and added his own comment in English: “This is how great leaders act!”

The cancellation coincided with a new eruption in the controversy over Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election — an issue that also flared up when the pair held their only summit to date, in Finland in July.

In Moscow, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reacted frostily to Trump’s cancellation, saying it would free up Putin to hold other “useful meetings” at the G20. [AFP]

Syrian army says downs ‘hostile targets’ in suspected Israel attack

Syria’s air defense forces shot down an Israeli war plane and four missiles on Thursday, Russia’s RIA news agency said, citing a Syrian security source, but Israel’s military said the report was bogus.

The source said the missiles aimed at the town of Kiswah, south of the capital Damascus, were struck before they reached their targets that Syrian opposition sources said were Iranian-backed strongholds.

The area where the incident is said to have occurred is where Lebanon’s Hezbollah, a group backed by Iran, has its communications and logistics hub for southern Syria near the Israeli border. Among the targets struck were two Syrian army brigades where Lebanon’s Hezbollah group is embedded alongside a rocket depot close to its bases near the border with Lebanon, another Syrian army defector in touch with military personnel said.

The Israel Defence Forces said in a statement on Twitter: “In the course of Syrian ground-to-air missile fire, (Israel’s) air defenses sighted a single trajectory toward an open area of the Golan Heights. At this stage it remains unclear whether there was indeed an impact in our territory. Our forces are scouring the area. Furthermore, the report about a strike on an Israeli aircraft or an Israeli aerial target are bogus,” said the statement. [REUTERS]

US: Iran violating UN arms export ban in Yemen, AfghanistanThe Trump administration on Thursday accused Iran of stepping up violations of a U.N. ban on arms exports by sending rockets and other weaponry to rebels in Afghanistan and Yemen.

The new allegations come as the U.S. ramps up pressure on Iran to halt what it calls “malign activities” in the Middle East and elsewhere by reinstating sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal from which President Donald Trump withdrew in May. Iran has denied such accusations in the past.

In a presentation at a military base in Washington, the administration displayed weapons and fragments of weapons seized in Afghanistan, Bahrain and Yemen that it said are evidence Iran is a “grave and escalating threat” that must be stopped. The material was added to a collection presented by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley last December when she laid out a case for pulling out of the nuclear agreement.

The weapons presented “irrefutable evidence” that Iran’s destabilizing activity in the region “is a problem that’s not getting better, it’s getting worse,” Brian Hook, the U.S. special representative for Iran, told journalists in a briefing after the presentation. Hook added that he hoped the display would rally international support for re-imposed U.S. sanctions on Iran. “It’s important for all nations to understand that this is a global threat that requires a global response,” Hook said, “it would be an act of negligence for us to be in possession of these arms and not to publicize it.” [AP]

Handful of caravan migrants launch hunger strike at U.S. border

A handful of the thousands of Central American migrants camped out at the U.S.-Mexican border waiting to plead their case for asylum in the United States launched a hunger strike on Thursday to protest the Mexican police blocking their way.

Members of the 6,000-strong caravan, mostly migrants from Honduras, have been sleeping outdoors, on cold floors or on mats in an overcrowded shelter since they arrived in Tijuana city across the border from San Diego, California, three weeks ago.

Mexican immigration authorities on Thursday began transporting some of the migrants via buses to a new shelter to help lessen the strain. On Thursday, as a steady rain fell and partially flooded the sports complex serving as the main shelter, it was Mexican police who stopped more than a dozen migrants from the caravan approaching the nearby El Chaparral border crossing.

White House to Hold Roundtable With Tech ExecutivesThe Trump administration will hold a roundtable discussion on innovation with top tech executives, a move that marks an easing of tensions between the White House and big Silicon Valley firms.

The panel, to be held next Thursday, will discuss “bold, transformational ideas” that “can help ensure U.S. leadership in industries of the future,” according to a White House email.
Executives expected to participate include Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Satya Nadella, Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai, Oracle Corp. co-Chief Executive Safra Catz,Qualcomm Inc. Chief Executive Steve Mollenkopf and others, the email says. Blackstone Group LP, Chief Executive Stephen Schwarzman and Carnegie Mellon University president Farnam Jahanian also will take part.

The meeting will be part of a Washington tour for Mr. Pichai, who is scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary Committee a day earlier, on Dec. 5. That hearing is expected to cover the range of concerns about the internet giant that have been voiced by lawmakers this year, including its handling of data privacy, the potential for political bias on its platform and the company’s exploration of a censored search engine for Chinese users.

Repeat outbreaks pressure produce industry to step up safetyAfter repeated food poisoning outbreaks linked to romaine lettuce, the produce industry is confronting the failure of its own safety measures in preventing contaminations.

The E. coli outbreak announced just before Thanksgiving follows one in the spring that sickened more than 200 people and killed five, and another last year that sickened 25 and killed one. No deaths have been reported in the latest outbreak, but the dozens of illnesses highlight the challenge of eliminating risk for vegetables grown in open fields and eaten raw, the role of nearby cattle operations that produce huge volumes of manure and the delay of stricter federal food safety regulations.

A contested aspect of the regulation, for example, would require testing irrigation water for E. coli. The Food and Drug Administration put the measure on hold when the produce industry said such tests wouldn’t necessarily help prevent outbreaks. Additional regulations on sanitation for workers and equipment — other potential sources of contamination — only recently started being implemented.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said he thinks the combination of rules, once fully in place, will make vegetables safer to eat. “I don’t think any one element of this is going to be the magic bullet,” Gottlieb said. [AP]

Neo-Nazi filled with ‘anger,’ prosecutor says

An American Nazi sympathizer was driven by “anger” when he plowed his car into a group of counter-protesters at a white supremacist rally last year in Charlottesville, prosecutors argued Thursday, as survivors recounted harrowing stories of “bodies flying everywhere.”

Months before ramming his Dodge Challenger into a crowd of activists in the Virginia city, James Alex Fields Jr posted disturbing pictures online that showed similar acts, prosecuting lawyers said as his trial got underway. The 21-year-old from Ohio is accused of first degree murder over the killing of Heather Heyer, 32, as well as hit-and-run charges and eight counts of causing serious injury.

Prosecutor Nina Antony told the jury that a mountain of photographic and video evidence would show Fields’ actions were pre-meditated and not motivated by a desire to protect himself, as the defense would argue. These included two images, she revealed for the first time, that were posted by Fields to Instagram in May 2017.

“And in both those images you’ll see a group being struck, described as protesters,” she said. [AFP]

Cuomo cuts ribbon on first new gates at LaGuardia

Beginning this weekend, Air Canada, United Airlines and Southwest Airlines will taxi over to the new Concourse B at LaGuardia Airport, part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $8 billion overhaul of the much-maligned hub. Before the governor’s news conference began, the sound system serenaded attendees in the gleaming white terminal with R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly,” Frank Sinatra’s “Come Fly With Me” and Tom Petty’s “Learning to Fly.”

The reconstruction, to include an FAO Schwarz toy store among other brand-name retailers, is a major piece of Cuomo’s multibillion-dollar effort to rebuild the state’s atrophied and overtaxed roads, bridges and airfields.

“LaGuardia is a metaphor. It’s a metaphor for the infrastructure in the state, it’s a metaphor for infrastructure in the nation,” the governor said. “It is hard to build a new airport while you are operating an old airport, on a postage stamp, in the middle of a neighborhood, yes, in the middle of New York City.”

The new concourse constitutes just 9% of the entire project, said Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton, a Cuomo appointee. The entire project, including a controversial $1.5 billion AirTrain linking the airport to Willets Point, is scheduled for completion in 2022.[CRAINS]

 Comptroller Stringer Says Bill De Blasio Housing Plan Fails Needy FamiliesNew York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s affordable housing program has not benefited enough of the city’s lower-earning working and homeless families and requires a massive infusion of money to achieve its aims, city Comptroller Scott Stringer said.

The mayor has set a goal of building or preserving 300,000 “affordable” units by 2026 as one of his signature programs. Its strategy relies on “inclusionary zoning,” which requires developers to set aside a percentage of apartments at below-market rents in return for subsidies and permits for higher density. The rezoning program has been attacked by local residents who say it promotes gentrification.

“Failing to target the city’s affordable housing resources toward the greatest need will not move the needle in the long run,” Stringer said. “The city will remain increasingly unaffordable, and homelessness will stubbornly persist.”

For Stringer, who has openly discussed his interest in running for mayor in 2021, the affordable housing proposal amounted to a sharp critique of a policy that de Blasio has touted since taking office in 2014. [BLOOMBERG]

 In Fiery Speech, Satmar Rebbe Tells NYS DOE: Clean Up Your Schools Before Telling Us How To Run OursWednesday night’s cold temperatures were no match for the scorching words of the Satmar Rebbe, Rabbi Aron Teitelbaum, who hurled fireball after fireball at the New York State Department of Education during last night’s 74th annual commemoration of the Satmar Rebbe, Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum’s escape from the Nazi regime.

Speaking passionately throughout the entire address, the Satmar Rebbe gave clear instructions to his followers to defy the DOE’s new orders, noting that the yeshiva system’s successes far outweigh those of the public schools and that the state has no right to intervene in the constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of religion. “If the commissioner of education wants to fix education in the State of New York, he can go to the public schools and fix the education being offered there,” thundered Rabbi Teitelbaum.

Drawing parallels to the upcoming holiday of Chanukah, the Satmar Rebbe said that the unthinkable had happened with Commissioner Elia following in the ways of the Greeks who issued decrees prohibiting Jewish education.

Rabbi Teitelbaum took the holiday theme one step further, taking aim at newly elected State Senator James Skoufis who blasted Kiryas Joel in his victory speech earlier this month. Without mentioning him directly by name, the Satmar Rebbe described Skoufis as a “wicked and evil man,” the biblical description accorded to Haman in the story of Purim.

“We will not sit with folded hands,” said the Satmar Rebbe. “We will fight this war to preserve our rights to live according to our religion and with G-d’s help we will nullify this terrible decree and will not accede to the commission in any way.” [VINNEWS]

Orthodox Jewish boy attacked on Brooklyn street

A 9-year-old Orthodox Jewish boy was randomly attacked by a stranger in Brooklyn in what police are investigating as a possible hate crime — the first of two similar incidents that occurred within an hour of each other, authorities said Thursday.

The boy was walking home with his mother around 6 p.m. Sunday near Throop Avenue and Walton Street in Williamsburg. Without saying a word, the passerby approached and punched him repeatedly in the face before rushing off, police said.

The child suffered swelling and pain but did not need to be transported to the hospital.
Police on Thursday provided a photo and video of his attacker, whom they described as being approximately 14 to 18 years old and 5-foot-6 inches tall, with a medium build. [NYP]

‘Individual 1’: Trump emerges as a central subject of Mueller probeIn two major developments this week, President Trump has been labeled in the parlance of criminal investigations as a major subject of interest, complete with an opaque legal code name: “Individual 1.”

New evidence from two separate fronts of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation casts fresh doubts on Trump’s version of key events involving Russia, signaling potential political and legal peril for the president. Investigators have now publicly cast Trump as a central figure of their probe into whether Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.

Together, the documents show investigators have evidence that Trump was in close contact with his lieutenants as they made outreach to both Russia and WikiLeaks — and that they tried to conceal the extent of their activities.

On Thursday, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress when he insisted that Trump was not pursuing plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow after January 2016, casting Trump’s repeated claims that he had no business interests in Russia in a new light. A draft special counsel document revealed Tuesday also indicates that prosecutors are closely scrutinizing Trump’s interactions with a longtime adviser, Roger Stone, as Stone was allegedly seeking information about WikiLeaks’ plans to release hacked Democratic emails.

Legal experts said it’s still unclear how much peril the president might face as a result of the new evidence Mueller has gathered about the Moscow project and WikiLeaks, but his prominence in the prosecutors’ papers puts the president in an awkward starring role. [WASHPOST]

The Trump Organization Planned To Give Vladimir Putin The $50 Million Penthouse In Trump Tower Moscow

President Donald Trump’s company planned to give a $50 million penthouse at Trump Tower Moscow to Russian President Vladimir Putin as the company negotiated the luxury real estate development during the 2016 campaign, according to four people, one of them the originator of the plan.

Two US law enforcement officials told BuzzFeed News that Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer at the time, discussed the idea with a representative of Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s press secretary.

The Trump Tower Moscow plan is at the heart of a new plea agreement by Cohen, who led the negotiations to bring a gleaming, 100-story building to the Russian capital. Cohen acknowledged in court that he had lied to Congress about the plan in order to protect Trump and his presidential campaign. [BUZZFEED]

Mueller eyes Ivanka and Don Jr.’s work on Trump Tower MoscowSenate Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump’s efforts to build a skyscraper in Moscow has led him to ask questions about the role two of the president’s children played in attempting to secure a Russian real estate deal, sources tell Yahoo News.

Multiple sources have confirmed to Yahoo News that the president’s elder daughter, Ivanka, who is now a top White House adviser, and his eldest son, Don Jr., were also working to make Trump Tower Moscow a reality. The sources said those efforts were independent of Cohen’s work on the project. One of the sources said Ivanka was also involved in Cohen’s efforts. And a separate source familiar with the investigation told Yahoo News that Mueller has asked questions about Ivanka and Don Jr.’s work on Trump Tower Moscow.

A source familiar with the Trump Organization confirmed to Yahoo News that Ivanka and Don Jr. engaged in separate efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. The source said these efforts began “years earlier” than Cohen’s project and concluded in 2013. “They were not looking at any other deals after that,” the source said.

The source also confirmed that both Ivanka and Don Jr. were aware of Cohen’s attempts to build in Moscow. According to the source, Ivanka’s role was limited to recommending an architect and Don Jr. was only “peripherally” aware of the plan. “Michael was looking at that deal. Don and Ivanka knew about it and Don testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was peripherally aware of it,” the source said, adding, “That’s why we’re so perplexed Cohen would lie about briefing them, because no one’s ever disputed that they knew he was looking at it.” [YAHOO]

Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan reveals his two biggest regrets as he prepares to leave officeOutgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan says his two biggest regrets as he prepares to leave office are not successfully dealing with immigration and the national debt.

The Republican lawmaker sat for an interview Thursday with The Washington Post as he prepares to retire after 20 years in Congress.

Ryan says if the national debt and immigration can be addressed, “we will have a great 21st century.” But Ryan says “history is going to be very good to this majority” because of the tax reform bill Republicans passed under his leadership.

Ryan says he also has sympathy for Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who is vying to succeed him as speaker. Ryan says he was able to become speaker on his terms, but “this is the benefit Nancy does not have.” [BI]

New Hampshire Democrats invite rising star Beto O’Rourke to the crucial presidential primary stateRep. Beto O’Rourke, who became a hero within the Democratic Party while losing a surprisingly tight race against Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, has already been invited to New Hampshire to speak with voters and meet experienced political operators in the key primary state, CNBC has learned.

Since O’Rourke’s loss earlier this month, Rob Friedlander, a senior advisor to the Texas Democrat’s campaign, has received calls from the New Hampshire Young Democrats requesting that O’Rourke come to the Granite State, according to people familiar with the matter. The goal would be to have O’Rourke tour parts of the state and interact with voters.

The invitation is the first sign since the election that O’Rourke, a three-term congressman, is being courted by influential New Hampshire operatives as a potential 2020 nominee for president. The group has not received a response yet from either Friedlander or O’Rourke, according to people with knowledge of the invitation. [CNBC]

Jewish Professor Finds Swastikas Spray-Painted in Office at Columbia

Two swastikas and an anti-Semitic slur were spray-painted Wednesday on the walls of a Jewish professor’s office at Columbia University, the latest in a surge of anti-Semitic incidents in New York this year.

The office belongs to Elizabeth Midlarsky, 77, who has written about the Holocaust and has been a repeated target of anti-Semitic vitriol while working as a psychology and education professor at the university’s Teachers College in Manhattan.

The vandalism comes amid a rise in anti-Semitic crimes that have unsettled a city long at the heart of American Jewish identity. Just weeks ago, a Brooklyn synagogue was defaced with graffiti, including the phrase “Die Jew Rats,” on the same day that two swastikas were foundspray-painted on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Days before those incidents, 11 people were killed at a Pittsburgh synagogue by a gunman shouting anti-Semitic slurs.

Still, Evan Bernstein, a regional director for the Anti-Defamation League, said the vandalism at Columbia was striking because it took place inside an office. Graffiti being found inside “somebody’s intimate space like that was very unique,” Mr. Bernstein said, adding that “this is the first that I can recall ‘Yid’ being used in an anti-Semitic vandalism incident.” [NYT]

AT&T commits to cutting up to $20 billion in debt in 2019

AT&T said on Thursday it has committed to cutting its heavy debt load next year through a variety of measures, including a review of all of its non-core assets such as its stake in streaming video company Hulu for possible sale.

The second-largest U.S. wireless carrier by subscribers said at an analyst meeting in New York that it will pay down $18 billion to $20 billion of its debt by the end of 2019, and will generate up to $8 billion in cash in part through the sale of some assets.

Shares of AT&T, which rose 1 percent in after hours trade during the presentation, are down 21 percent so far this year as investors have been concerned about its heavy debt – which totaled $183 billion as of Sept. 30 – after its purchase of media company Time Warner.[REUTERS]

Amazon Makes Inroads Selling Medical Supplies to the SickA growing number of doctors around the U.S. can direct a patient to Inc. to buy blood-pressure cuffs, slings and other supplies via an app embedded in the patient’s private medical record—a change creating convenience but also raising privacy concerns.

Hospitals that use the app say the goal is to replace the handwritten shopping lists doctors often hand people, which are easy to lose, and to spare frazzled patients lengthy searches through pharmacy shelves.

Privacy experts say the app, and Amazon’s involvement, represent the latest example of new and unanticipated issues arising as doctors, retailers and software developers take advantage of the digitization of medical data and tap patients’ growing comfort with the internet. The app, developed by a separate company called Xealth Inc., enables doctors to choose which supplies to recommend, then email the list of products to a patient. The email directs the patient to a website with photos of recommended products, descriptions and links for purchasing on Amazon. [WSJ]

Starbucks is doing better than ever after Howard Schultz

This year has been filled with transition and turmoil at Starbucks. But don’t tell that to Wall Street.

Despite negative publicity in 2018 that stemmed from the arrests of two black customers in a Philadelphia store in April, worries about more competition from Dunkin’ and McDonald’s and the retirement of its iconic leader Howard Schultz, shares of Starbucks are up more than 15% this year and are not far from an all-time high.

Starbucks (SBUX) CEO Kevin Johnson has had to make some tough decisions that appear to be paying off. Johnson was widely praised for how Starbucks handled the aftermath of the Philadelphia incident. He personally apologized and vowed to do better. Starbucks ultimately decided to close more than 8,000 stores for a few hours in late May for racial bias training.

In late June, shortly after Schultz said he would step down as executive chairman, Starbucks announced it would shutter 150 underperforming US stores this year — triple the usual amount of annual closures. [CNN]
Going beyond the niche at a kosher steakhouse

After emigrating with his family to Brooklyn from Damascus, Syria, in the 1990s, a teenage Allaham worked after school at a butcher shop in Midwood owned by family members. When broader culinary trends began to shift toward the artisanal, Allaham decided he wanted to emphasize quality meat in kosher butchery. The family launched a second, more upscale shop nearby.

When he decided to go into the restaurant business, Allaham partnered with a client who ran the restaurant that preceded Reserve Cut, kosherizing the kitchen, updating the dining room and relaunching it as a sleek, FiDi hot spot.

He set about upping the kosher-cooking game. “Every day the chef, butcher and I talk about new ideas,” he said. That includes thickening some sauces with a parve (nondairy) cream and making “butter” from rendered fat. Allaham brought his butcher shop experience to bear, setting up his own aging room. He wanted a steady supply of wagyu beef, a Japanese breed prized for its marbled texture, so he recently launched a ranch in Iowa to raise it for his menu. Because he buys meat for three businesses—the two butcher shops and the restaurant—he is able to plan purchasing to get the best quality in a market infamous for low supply. 

In striving for that goal, Allaham succeeded in shedding kosher restaurants’ penchant for nostalgia, a trait that attracted previous generations hungry for a taste of the Old World. “The style of service, the silverware, the dishes, all the things that bespeak a more upscale experience—these have been incorporated,” said Deborah Dash Moore, the author of Jewish New York and a professor of history at the University of Michigan. “One of the reasons why non-Jews are joining is because the food is good and the atmosphere is right.” [CRAINS]
