Putin Tells Diplomats He Made Trump a New Offer on Ukraine at Their Summit
Vladimir Putin told Russian diplomats that he made a proposal to Donald Trump at their summit this week to hold a referendum to help resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine, but agreed not to disclose the plan publicly so the U.S. president could consider it, according to two people who attended Putin's closed-door speech on Thursday. Details of what the two leaders discussed in their summit in Helsinki, Finland, remain scarce, with much of the description so far coming from Russia. While Putin portrayed the Ukraine offer as a sign he's seeking to bring the four-year-old crisis to an end, a referendum is likely to be a hard sell with Ukraine and its backers in Europe, who remain committed to an 2015 European-brokered truce deal for the Donbas region, parts of which are controlled by Russian-backed separatists.

Trump Blasts Powell's Rate Hikes, Trespassing on Fed's Independence
President Donald Trump criticized the Federal Reserve's interest-rate increases, breaking with more than two decades of White House tradition of avoiding comments on monetary policy out of respect for the independence of the U.S. central bank. "I'm not thrilled" the Fed is raising borrowing costs and potentially slowing the economy, he said in an interview with CNBC broadcast Thursday. The Fed has raised interest rates five times since Trump took office in January 2017, with two of those coming this year under Chairman Jerome Powell, the president's pick to replace Janet Yellen.

Union Pacific's higher costs cloud 2nd-qtr profit beat
No. 1 U.S. railroad Union Pacific Corp's second-quarter profit and revenue beat estimates on Thursday but costs related to a tunnel collapse that wreaked havoc on its Northwest service offset much of the gain from sharply lower U.S. taxes, sending shares down more than 1 percent. Union Pacific's operating ratio, a measure of operating expenses as a percentage of revenue and a closely watched gauge of railroad performance, increased 1.1 points to 63 percent from a year ago due to higher fuel and labor costs. "Network performance improved significantly coming out of the first quarter, but a tunnel outage and train-crew shortages created a headwind in June," Chief Executive Officer Lance Fritz said.
