The CEO of Boeing warned on Wednesday that President Trump's escalating trade war with China was creating a risk that the company would have to cut production rates of its most advanced plane, the 787 Dreamliner, according to a Bloomberg report.




Boeing's widebody jets have proved a crucial source of cash as the company works to get the grounded 737 Max fleet back in the air.




Orders from Chinese airlines — including a blockbuster order of 100 Dreamliners and 777X jets — play a major part of Boeing's sales forcasts for the 2020s.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg warned on Wednesday that the escalating trade war between the US and China is creating a new risk for its wide-body commercial airplane programs.
"We're still hopeful that a trade deal will be accomplished and that airplanes will be part of that," Muilenburg said Wednesday at an investor conference. "But a lack of a trade deal does add risk to our widebody skyline. So we're paying close attention."
Muilenburg's comments were first reported by Bloomberg.
