Wall Street rises on trade deal hopes

Signs of easing tensions in the US-China trade war pushed Wall Street higher yesterday after US President Trump said negotiations were getting “closer and closer” and that a trade deal could come “sooner than you think”. UK PM Jonson offered the Opposition a chance to call a general election, which wasn’t taken up. Oil prices slid on rising inventories.
