Businesses are not abandoning China in droves as a result of President Trump's trade war. But business leaders are annoyed and making changes.

By the numbers: In a recent Bain & Co. survey of more than 200 senior executives at U.S. multinational companies with operations in China, 60% of respondents executives largely support tariffs on China — while 60% also said they expect their business to face cost headwinds due to the U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods.

The big picture: Few of the executives think China's retaliatory tariffs are "fair" and most don't like the tariffs' results.

  • More than 65% of electronics and industrial manufacturers believe they will see negative impacts.
  • Only 40% of respondents believed that the tariffs would ultimately lead to more U.S. jobs.

In the next 12 months, more than 40% of the executives said their companies planned to take actions like finding new sourcing partners and new regions to source raw materials.

  • 39% said they will look to renegotiate supplier contracts.
  • 33% said they planned to pass costs on to customers.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has lost the Republican nomination for Senate to Tommy Tuberville in Alabama in Tuesday night’s primary runoff, AP reports.

Why it matters: Sessions had been the underdog in the race against former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, who had the backing of President Trump. Tuberville will now face off against Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) in November, who is considered to have one of the most vulnerable Democratic Senate seats in the country.

Bank CEOs brace for worsening economic scenario

Wells Fargo swung to its first loss since the financial crisis — while JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup reported significantly lower profits from a year earlier — as the banks set aside billions of dollars more in the second quarter for loans that may go bad.

Why it matters: The cumulative $28 billion in loan loss provisions that banks have so far announced they’re reserving serves as a signal they’re preparing for a colossal wave of loan defaults as the economy slogs through a coronavirus-driven downturn.
