what did you learn about the fed's academic approach to this? i think the fed is watching all the data that they have. in august, they had a slowdown in china. we have gotten some new data, lost in all the news of the day, tegdp that was really qui traordinary. i think the job numbers were pretty good. the market is pleased with it. you can see the results, which is up today. the s&p is a lot higher. there been this course of voices trying to get the fed to raise interest rates? they were afforded in the meeting in september, and now that janet yellen gives the speech, which hints that they might still raise rates in 2015,

the stock market goes up. how does that work? >> is very clear that when they focus on the data, any meeting, all meetings remain on the table. a 2015s potential for lift off if the economy continues to meet expectations. she turned around and said these expectations come with a significant amount of uncertainty. the will all depend on underlying data and evolution of the underlying data. i think in part, the stock market rally was effective the chairman backing away from ontements about the weakness the international fronts, but also on the backdrop of the front that is willing to remain on the sideline. it is not the fed beholden to the calendar alone.
11:07 am
we go into the speech she gave yesterday at umass amherst. yellen: it will likely be appropriate to raise the target for the federal fund of range later this year and continue boosting short-term rates at a gradual pace thereafter as the labor market improves further and inflation moves back to our objective. really: she was stressing the gradual pace. even when she gets off a zero balance, the labor market runs a little hot. how much scope that she have to do that? mark: i think we have seen that she has got a lot of scope. when a lot of people were disappointed with in august, when we had the september hat sheement, was tht

11:09 am
not meeting that until the next two or three years. she talked about the downward pressures, including energy import prices and non-energy import prices. these will most likely be very littleith underlying pressure coming from the lack of a wage price inflation. ,hat is interesting is that again, she noted that if we see further downward pressure from energy prices and commodity prices or further appreciation of the u.s. dollar, the downward pressures on inflation are likely to take a longer. of time toeriod dissipate. her expectations are for a near-term reversal and suggests, the data what inflation out in the economy? , the fed is more

11:25 am
this and how they look and twit into the u.s. -- in the usa? cory: one of the things that we learned during the last investigation is that the staff is very vigorous in insisting the charges be brought. a report was accidentally leaked to the wall street journal. sent themt the ftc the full version of the investigation, the portions of which they put online. they showed them the staff found a number of cases where google put their own business ahead of competitors when searches,. they were not getting customers the things they wanted, they were giving them google services. the same allegations were found in europe. europe decided to bring charges. not.tc in the u.s. did

11:31 am
there, it should appeal to a lot of people, especially professionals and more high-end consumers. 11: you shipped 800,000 phones. what kind of numbers in you mapping out for this android phone? not provide did that information. the reason we put this out today is i would normally wait until we market a month from now. it's leaking everywhere. i am going to have to get my arms around of that area since it's leaking, i thought it would you good thing for the market to know that we are doing that. haven't the details i disclosed yet. over time, we will start disclosing. i don't think we will tell people how many phones we are going to sell. over time, the market will give you some intelligence there. emily: we appreciate you giving
11:32 am
us the details. i have been asking you about this for a long time. if your high-security customers embrace the android phone it, would you be convinced to stop selling the blackberry operating system opponent? what would it take to do that? john chen: that's a great question. the blackberry phone is the most secure phone on the market. we have a lot of high-end government users. we continue the support of that. we have a new report coming out in march of next year. that will provide another level of security certification. the government and the regulated industry customers will be taken care of. we will continue to develop security for the android space. there will be a time when the

t san francisco with john chen. the pope is at the 9/11 museum. the popet his visit, is held fast to his critique of savage capitalism. he told capitalism -- congress slave tocan't be a finance. thisit comes to managing institution, does pope francis produce what he preaches? my guest can tell us some details. before we get to pope francis, described for me a little bit about the history of the vatican bank. a lot of people may not know about its existence. is the head of a
11:37 am
nation, the vatican city and they have had a bank for 70 years. they have decades of scandals. it practiced what he calls savage capitals. it was a place for money launderers and people who wanted to avoid taxes. they did business with the nazis in world war ii. extraditens could not a bishop because he had inside vatican city. is this pope says that capitalism has his extremes and should be somewhat restrained going to do something about his cityank inside of vatican which has been over the line? what has he done? he has shaken up the bank. he is launched a major investigation. tell us about his relationship with the vatican bank. gerald: he has no choice.
11:38 am
the vatican started to use the euro at the turn-of-the-century. require themng to meeting international standards. like an annual report. they passed their first ever law against money laundering. past a law against financing international television. he used to be in to bring as much money as you could carry. he is reform it. he has no choice. he is doing it with some enthusiasm. he is not giving this to clerics and a few months in your's that are dragging their feet and don't know what they're doing. he is bringing in good outside experts. pimm: one came from invesco. gerald: he has brought in the wall street people that he castigates at times.
11:39 am
he is the layman it running the vatican bank. they are good catholics. there is nothing that says you can't work there unless you are catholic. they are all devout catholics that are successful is this man. they are trying to clean up. i think they are doing a good job of it. there are two criminal investigations in italy looking at money laundering the for francis became pope in 2013. those may develop into criminal cases. pimm: what about cases that could be in some way amplified up by the release of documents that are held in the archives of the vatican bank? gerald: let's say he is a reformer going forward. the question i would raise publicly, will he be a reformer
11:40 am
going backwards? will he released the world war ii files of the vatican bank? are questions about the extent to which the vatican profited from investments with insurance companies during the war. the bank was created in the middle of that. will the vatican release that? i don't know. you just mentioned he is at the 9/11 memorial. there are nearly 100 representatives there. will they raise the issue of the holocaust files with him? he might be the pope capable of setting them free. pimm: thank you very much for setting -- spending time with us. ahead, with a looming shutdown, john boehner announces that he is resigning from congress next month. we've get details.
11:41 am
11:42 am
11:43 am
pimm: this is the bloomberg market day. john boehner is resigning. he believed congress at the end of october. phil mattingly joins us. i want to begin with you, phil mattingly. you have some new information. the rnc has a statement about john boehner's resignation. phil: we hearing from a lot of
11:44 am
top republicans, even those who did not agree with speaker boehner at any point, there is respect for the career he had in washington and the difficulties he had to deal with. the next person we will hear from will be president obama about this after his meetings with the chinese president. he will be having a press conference. addresshe president to speaker boehner. this goes back to what has been a very rebellious conservative faction of the house. speaker boehner to the role, he has brought with them throughout to maintain government functions, to maintain the u.s. been able to pay its bills. getting the pope to washington dc, something he has been trying to do for decades, he decided its time to hang it up. he finished his remarks after saying the prayer of france it
11:45 am
-- st. francis. today was a good day. we will likely hear from him going forward. october, he will leave congress altogether. pimm: hang on to second. i want to bring in stand colander. what is going to be a next speaker? ben: it will almost entirely kevin mccarthy on a very short leash. they've got to be thinking that he's going to be hearing footsteps item. they did this to eric cantor as well. they are going to go after the next speaker if he doesn't do what they want. pimm: what would be your position? what are the odds of a government shutdown? are two parts to this question. the short answer is the odds in
11:46 am
october are zero. john boehner can now work with the democrats, which gives him a 190 votes. he only needs 28 republicans to get a majority. he can tell the freedom caucus to take this job and shove it. that is undoubtedly what he was doing. the odds of a shutdown in december have driven -- risen rather dramatically. kevin mccarthy will be on a short leash trying to deal with the freedom caucus. they are also dealing with the debt ceiling. it's going to be much more difficult and much more uncertainty for the markets to deal with. he came to congress in 1991. what does it say about the resignation of such a veteran member of the house of representatives question mark
11:47 am
stan: the republican caucus is in it this ray. the party has changed dramatically. you would expect that anyway. this basically says that if you are in the establishment, you are gone. we don't respect you, you don't represent us. the party has become a much more conservative. you are seeing this in the congressional leadership roles, mitch mcconnell is also under attack from extreme conservatives. you've got to wonder what this does to the presidential opportunities. it probably hurts it substantially. pimm: i want to thank you gentlemen very much. to philks also mattingly of bloomberg news. using up, phil will give
11:48 am
coverage and reporting on the president's news conference. he will have a joint news conference with the chinese president. we will cover that live and have more details on the resignation of house speaker john boehner. live coverage is coming up of the president's news conference. ♪

pimm: this is the bloomberg market day. we will bring you live coverage of president obama's news conference with the chinese president. that will begin at noon. while we await the two presidents, i will bring in my colleague for the next half hour, betty liu. you talked to some senior state officials of the chinese government, the chinese counterpart to our secretary of state. that climate
11:51 am
change is going to be a big topic of conversation. betty: that's the indication. we went to beijing and we talked to the counselor. he is part of the delegation on this trip. we are expecting a joint statement between the u.s. and china on climate change. china is basically going to make it a lot more expensive with regulation, cap and trade. they're going to make a lot more expensive for any company in china when it comes to air pollution. they are trying to rain that back. slightly, that is people knew it would be on the agenda. it's slightly different than what was expected. we thought there might be a joint statement on cybercrime.
11:52 am
pimm: two decriminalized the internet? betty: the accusation is that the chinese government sponsors hacking. a threat to impose economic sanctions. that's a very contentious issue. it is a big elephant in the room. there was hope that maybe they could find some sort of common ground for the chinese to say they are going to really crack the on this, even though say thatontinue to they do not sponsor this at all. they themselves feel that they are the victims of cybercrime and, just as much as the united states. it doesn't look like we are to
11:53 am
get a breakthrough on that front. pimm: we will look forward to the presidents press conference with the chinese president. onwill bring that to you bloomberg tv. now it's time for the options insight. let's go right to julie hyman. we have a rally underway. janet yellen said it's likely we will see interest rates go higher this year. let's talk what the options perspective. traitorme is james, a at alpha sharp trading. interesting day. it's a reversal. you have this indication that rates are going higher and stocks are going up as well. what's going on? equities are seeing based on the comments yellen made last night.
11:54 am
i think it's indicating that not all are the case. we are up 15 points right now. over net, we are up over 30. people are seeing this as an opportunity to take profit. we are seeing a lot of foot buying as well. like all -- not all traders are on track for a rate hike this year. they are using today as a way to pick up some protection. julie: i know one of the groups you are watching, the financials. they have been leading the gains today. right now, it's up better than 1.5%. you talked about buying. somebody is taking a negative that on that. james: absolutely. we saw some massive losses.
11:55 am
the biggest trade we were tracking this week happened on wednesday. a traitor came in and bought 92,000 positions. that's better than a $7 million bet. we are not going to get a rate hike this year. maybe this traitor is looking for some protection. i like this trade because it accomplishes two things. i can speculate on a lack of rate hike or have cheap protection against long equities in case we don't get that. julie: gotcha. what is your trade exactly? james: i am buying this same line of points. i was able to get them for cheaper today. cheap wayrelatively for me to buy protection against a long portfolio of equities. we are seeing a lot of outflow this week. i think this is a good time to look at protection like this. a bet that we
11:56 am
will not see rates go up this year because rates going higher would eventually be good for some of these banks profitability? james: absolutely. i think that even though we got some clarity, they are still leaving themselves out should the global economy with weaker. everybody was convinced we would get that rate hike in september. then they cited that as a reason for not raising rates. julie: all right. thanks so much. we are watching that today. stay with us. much more bloomberg market day. ♪

moment. he had a meeting with the chinese president. pimm: down the street, john boehner makes a stunning announcement. he will resign next month. he is facing pressure from more conservative members of the house republican caucus. pimm: good afternoon. brendan: what a morning. we had a lot of news coming out into the market. the markets were paid attention to what janet yellen said last night. more about how the markets are trading. the market's down off the highs of the session. traders appear to be paying attention to those comments.
12:01 pm
she indicated in that speech that there is a high likelihood that we will see interest rates increase. she gave herself some data dependent caveats. financials are leading the game. i wanted to focus on apple. the report today that this is the first day people can buy the new version of the iphone. you can see that the shares are higher by about one third. they had given up some of the gains from earlier in the day. early indication is it's been strong. this was in boston when it people were lined up for that new iphone. as they tend to do. we saw some similar lines here in york and elsewhere in --. pimm: what about the suppliers who make the parts? julie: many of them are doing well today. if you look at my terminal, we have the supply chain function. we've been looking at this a lot lately.
12:02 pm
it shows you the apple ecosystem. an estimated 62% of its revenue comes from apple alone. apple has a long supplier list, 314 suppliers measured by bloomberg. media outletsral to have done it paired down of the new iphone to figure out who some of the suppliers were. the stock is up 13%. there was some commentary from oppenheimer. he said he was impressed with some of the new chips. speaking of some of the suppliers we are looking at, nxp semiconductors depend on apple and they are up 2%. if we are talking about the apple ecosystem, there is one had itse, blackberry numbers and those shares are down. they are down by nearly 6%.

john tran tried to put a brave face on things. he said it has hit a low point of the turnaround. now it will go up from here. this is after they reported a wider lost an estimated. that is partially to blame for the decline in shares. pimm: thank you, julie hyman from the newsroom. we are following two major stories coming out of washington dc this morning. the resignation of house speaker john painter and as you see in awaiting the are president and the president of china. they will be holding a joint press conference in the rose garden. phil mattingly has the latest on a both stories for us. phil joins us from the white house. let's take first the surprising news, stunning news the john
12:04 pm
boehner is resigning. tell us where this throws the future? you get the budget, immigration it, several issues on tap. phil: there are so many dynamics in play. the government needs to be funded after september 30 that has big the big fight in the house. that has been centered primarily on planned parenthood and the money it gets. conservatives say you have to strip that funding. what this does for republicans and lawmakers since john painter announced his resident nation, this puts the chances at more or less zero. the expectation is that john boehner will put up a clean of funding resolution that the president says he will sign. the government shutdown is gone it, but long-term it seems like every three months since he took
12:05 pm
over, there was a massive fight with the 30 or 40 conservative members of his conference. towill no longer be there keep the regular functions of the government going. they need to find out who the new leader is going to be and by a member or december when the debt ceiling comes back up, whether they are willing to increase and get something to the white house that the president will sign. pimm: we are getting word that there is a statement released i john boehner's office. it characterized his resident nation in terms of the potential turmoil. long leadership turmoil would do irreparable damage to the institution. to that end i will resign the speakership. why would he also resign his
12:06 pm
seat in congress? phil: there is no sense in sticking around just to be there. you saw eric cantor who was defeated and was the majority reaver -- leader. i think what he's referring to is were he put forward a clean funding resolution that did not defund planned parenthood, there were people putting up a resolution that would remove them from the speakership. there is some sense that he had the votes to win that battle. it continues to send the conference down a way that is unhealthy for the republican party as a whole. the key element, john boehner worked for two decades to get to washington dc. pope francisst for yesterday. was athat visit, there sense among those around him that he could exhale.
12:07 pm
he hit everything he wanted to do in the position and it was time to go. betty: he got it done. we learned from nancy pelosi that she heard of this resignation from a breaking news alert. she was not told ahead of time. she noted that this is in her view a statement of how much house republicans are in disarray. you expect the democrat reaction to be in the coming days of this? phil: it's going to be split. i'm sure there is some dancing on the grave. we watch the republican party become so fractured us that they ran out one of their top members, a guy who is an extremely conservative member of congress. moderateen pegged as a because he had to lead of this group of republicans. boehner, you knew you could
12:08 pm

american people and people in the world. thank you. [applause] president obama: we will take a few questions. we will start with bloomberg. >> thank you. president obama, and president sheen, i would like to talk about cyber. if i am an american business and i'm being attacked by chinese prior to or trying to steal my intellectual property, what assurances can you give us about when things will get better? are you proposing a new sanctions? and could we expect prosecution of chinese people and organizations who have hacked american businesses and if the u.s. did sanction china, would you respond with sanctions? when is your action to house speaker john boehner's decision to resign? will that make life better or worse for you?
12:48 pm
are you concerned it will make it more difficult to avoid a government shutdown? do you think he could just ways the rules and get immigration reform through? thank you. president obama: i will take them in order. in respect to cyber, this has discussion since we first met. the good news from my perspective is that in the lead finalized during , i meetings here, today think we have made significant agreeing to how our law enforcement investigators are going to work together, a we're going to exchange information, how we're going to go after the individuals or
12:49 pm
engaging in are cyber crimes, or cyber attacks. affirmed injointly principle that governments don't engage in cyber espionage for conversion gain against countries. that all i consider to be progress. when i said to the president who and what i say to the american people is the question now is our words followed by actions? we will be watching carefully to make an assessment as to whether progress has been made in this area. to the various tools that we have to go after those who are attacking our companies were trying to extract weee these greens or data,
12:50 pm
have traditional law enforcement tools, but as i indicated a wild back through executive action, i have also is intuited the ability to impose sanctions on individuals or enemies. where we have proof that they have gone after u.s. companies or u.s. persons. we did not, at our level, have specific discussions of specific cases. i did indicate to the president those andll apply whatever other tools we have in cyberolkit to go after eitherls, i retrospectively or prospectively. those generally are not directed governments. they are directed at entities or individuals that we can identify.
12:51 pm
they are not unique to china. those are tools that we are going to be using for cyber criminals around the world. -- the president indicated to me that with 1.3 billion people he cannot guarantee the behavior of every single person on chinese soil, which i completely understand. i cannot guarantee the actions of every single american. what i can guarantee though, and when i am hoping the president we are note, is that sponsoring these activities, and that when it comes to our attention that nongovernmental ,ntities are engaging in this we take it seriously and we are cooperating to enforce the law. the last point i will make on
12:52 pm
the cyber issue, because this is a global problem, and because, unlike some of the other areas, the rules in this area are not well developed, i think it is going to be very important for the united states and china working with other nations and the united nations and the private sector to start developing an architecture that governs behavior in cyberspace. that is enforceable and clear. it does not mean we will prevent every cyber crime, but it does or to serve as a template whereby countries know what the rules are, they are held accountable, and we are able to jointly go after them in this area. on john boehner, i just heard the news as i was coming out of
12:53 pm
the meeting. it took me by surprise. i took the time prior to this press conference to call john directly and talk to him. john boehner is a good man. patriot, he cares deeply about the house and institution in which it has served for the long time. he cares about his constituents. he cares about america. we have obviously had a lot of disagreements. and politically, we are at different ends of the spectrum. but i will tell you he has always conducted himself with courtesy would civility with me, he has kept his word when he made a commitment. he is somebody who has been gracious.
12:54 pm
most of four-legged he is inebody who understands that government and governance, you cannot get out of percent of what you want, but you have to work with people who you disagree with, sometimes strongly, in order to deal with people's business. whonot going to prejudge the next speaker will be. that is something that will have to be worked through in the house. reach outtainly immediately to whoever is the new speaker to see what his or her ideas are and how we can make progress and important issues that america faces. one thing i will say is that my hope is there is a recognition ,n the part of the next speaker
12:55 pm
something i think john understood, even though it was challenging to bring his caucus along, but we can have significant differences on issues, but that does not mean you should done the government, risk the not mean you full faith and credit of the united states. you do not invite your provincial financial crisis. new bill roads and pass transportation bills and do the basic work of governance that ensures that our military is operating and that her national parks are open and that our kids are learning. and there is no weakness in that. that is what government is. you do not get what you want 100% of the time. take half of it, sometimes you take a quarter of it. that is that i have learned in
12:56 pm
this office. i'm looking forward to working with the next speaker. in the next town, john is not going to leave for another 30 days. so hopefully he feels like getting as much stuff done as he possibly can, and i will certainly be looking forward to working with him on that. madam reporter has raised the cyber security issue. indeed the current for the international community is all persons with president obama and i have on many occasions exchange use of this. i think it is fair to say we reach a lot of consensus including new consensus. overall the notice states is the strongest country in terms of
12:57 pm
thought cyber strength. china is the world's biggest country in terms of number of web users. we are more than 600 million. cooperation will benefit both, and confrontation will need to -- will be losses to vote, because we need to carry out dialogue and exchanges to strengthen our cooperation in many respects and turn the cyber into a new growth source instead of a point of confrontation between the two sides. china strongly opposes the commercialtheft of secrets and other kinds of hacking attacks. side has concerns in this respect, but we conclude existing channels expressed those concerns. they take seriously the
12:58 pm
information. have the law enforcement authorities maintain a coalition of this matter addressed. we have broad common interest. we need to strengthen operations and avoid leading confrontation. during my current visit only get is fair to say that the two combine cybercrime have reached a lot of consensus. reachforward we need to further agreement on them and further point them on the ground. now, i would like to propose for
12:59 pm
china's central television republish -- reported to raise a question. >> i have a question for president obama. i have noticed that last night, meeting,president recently made the remarks indicated the u.s. will come to a rise of prosperous china, and support china to pay -- play a big role on the international stage. would you please elaborate for your office so far to land and naval reaching the target? we are more interested for the remainder of office what we can do to reach that goal. president obama: i think the provided aes have platform in the post-world war
1:00 pm
regionin which the asia thebeen able to stabilize conditions in which china was able to grow so rapidly were maintained. we're proud of the work we did after world war ii. both asia and were -- europe, to establish international norms and rules facilitated growing role trade, and connections in trouble and interactions. to help maintain the peace. the president, my goal has been
1:01 pm
to can is something you can do -- consistently engages china in a way that is struck it, to maximize opportunities for cooperation. that irepeatedly said believe it is in the interest of the united states to see china grow. to pull people out of poverty. market.d its a successful and stable and peaceful china can then serve as an effective partner with us on a range of all challenges. last night during our discussions i mentioned that as powerful as the united states is , the nature of the biggest challenge that we face is for
1:02 pm
terrorism or economic refugees. -- issuesnot asian that any one nation console. enough that because of our string and the size of our economy and yes of our military that we can play a special role and carry a larger burden. but we cannot do it alone. china's will has development challenges of its own. we are together. i think that can as long as we continue to recognize that there is a difference between friendly competition, which we have with some of our closest friends and allies, like great britain and , and competition that killed the playing field -- tilting it unfairly in one layer
1:03 pm
of the other -- way or the other. upholdire to international norms rules. these international obstetricians reflect their strength and power -- institutions reflect their strength and power. an area that we fully support and want to implement. reflective of strength. the same will be true only go to the united states. itsa is able to project capabilities in a way that can be extremely helpful in reducing conflict. in all of those issues, as well as education must science, technology.
1:04 pm
corporation is there a long as there's reciprocity, transparency, and fairness of the relationship. what i have said in past to the president is given china's ofnes, we like the number poverty inside of china. china as if it is still a very poor, developing country. it might have been 50 years ago, but it is now in our whole's -- a powerhouse. they have responsibilities and expectations in terms of helping thatd international rules is part of the deal of being on the world stage. your more to do. my gray-haired testifies to that. julie davis?
1:05 pm
thank you, mr. president. you do not want to prejudge the beaker. i wondered you could tell us was beaker boehner's resignation tells you about the republican party and your ability to work with congress and the remainder of your term, particularly solicitous coming at a time when you're trying to negotiate to no of her government shutdown. do you think you will be able to move forward with the congress on priorities like the budget land, planned parenthood, integration, that you were not able to address with speaker boehner in his position? and to the president of china, you have experience in economic downturn with the stock market crisis. investors have been concerned about some of the actions you take it to intervene in the stock market and with the currency exchange rate i wonder you can say which you can say today to restore confidence that the these interventions will not
1:06 pm
affect globally in the future? president obama: mfri said. i will not prejudge. i do not know who the next speaker was. is. i expect there will be a lot of debate within the republican caucus about who they want to lead them, and in what direction. it is not as if there has been a multitude of various where they sought cooperation previously. i do not necessarily think there is going to be a big shift. that speaker boehner sometimes had a tough mission because ere were members in his congress that sought
1:07 pm
weaknesse of any sort or betrayal. when you have divided government , when you have a democracy compromises necessary. i think speaker boehner had difficulty persuading members of his caucus to that. someully they have learned lessons from 2011. sought toime they introduce a non-budget item to come atet discussions that time it was obamacare comman agreed to shut down the government that purpose. it really hurt the economy, slowing it down. it caused a lot of hardship in problems for a lot of people. it turns out that government provides a lot of vital services. our military provides his
1:08 pm

1:09 pm
know that my plan was to step down at the end of last year. of 2010d in november that when i was elected speaker that serving two terms would have been plenty. year, itne of last became clear that the majority leader lost his election, and i frankly did not believe it was right for me to leave at the end of last year. so my goal was to leave at the end of this year. really on my birthday, to announce that i was leaving at the end of the year. but it has become clear to me that this prolonged leadership turmoil would do irreparable harm to the institution. so this morning i informed my resignues that i will from the speakership and resign from congress of the end of october. as you have often heard me say, this is not about me.
1:10 pm
it is about the people, it is about the institution. just yesterday we witness the awesome side of pope francis addressing the greatest legislative body in the world. heed hisat we will all call to live by the golden rule. last night i started thinking about this. this morning i woke up and i said my prayers, as i always do, and i decided today's the day i'm going to do this. as simple as that. that is the code i has always by committee to the right thing for the right reasons, the right things will happen. i know good things lie ahead for these houses in the country, i'm proud of what we are composed of and proud of my team. this is my 25th year here, and i have succeeded in large part because i put a staff together and a team together, many of which have been with me for a long time.
1:11 pm
without a grade staff from you cannot be a grade member, and you cannot be a good speaker. i'm going to thank my family for putting up with this all these years. who are now 37 and 35, their first campaign photo was in july of 1981. they have had to endure all of this. it is one thing for me to have to endure it, i have thick skin. and my wife, they have had to put up with a lot over the years. express my gratitude to my constituents, who have sent me here 13 times over the last 25 years. you cannot get here without getting votes. i say this often, people ask me what is the greatest thing about being speaker? or about being an elected
1:12 pm
official? and i say the people you get to meet. i get to meet thousands of people in my own personal district that i would never have met other than the the fact that i decided to run for congress. traveled onrs as a behalf of my colleagues in the party, i meant tens of thousands of additional people all over the country. you meet rich people, poor people, interesting people, and a newborn ones along the way. that 99.9% of you the people i meet on the road nicer thanuld not be they have been. it has been wonderful. it has been an honor toserve in this institution. --go ahead. >> [indiscernible]
1:13 pm
if you reached this decision last night, was their degree to which pope francis led you to this decision? >> no. was a emotional yesterday, yes i was. i was emotional and a moment that no one saw. the pope and i were getting ready to exit the building, and we found ourselves alone. left arm andbed my said some very kind words to me to kids andmitment education. me andput his arm around pulls me to him and says please pray for me. who am i to pray for the pope? but i did. >> but it wasn't the pope who
1:14 pm
the decision? >> it was never about a vote. i don't want my members to go through this and the institution to go through this, what i'm thinking about working out the door anyway. i'm entirely comfortable doing this. >> i heard you say before that a leader -- [indiscernible] >> that is right. followingy of people me. but the turmoil that has been churning for the last couple of months is not good for the members of the institution. if i was not planning on leaving here soon, i would not have done this. arehere are people who outside of this is situation who feel they have a victory here.
1:15 pm
i am glad i made this announcement at the conference with all my republican colleagues. it was a very good moment to help rebuild the team. i feel good about what i have done. i know that i every day tried to do the right thing for the right reasons and try to do the right thing for the country. >> [indiscernible] >> i'm going to be here for another five weeks. -- i'm going to leave not going to sit around here and do nothing for the next 30 days.
1:16 pm
there is a lot of work and easily done i plan to get as much of it done as i can before i exit. >> [indiscernible] island to the same decisions i would have made regardless of this. some members of your heart rate, and outside groups [indiscernible] had you just had enough? >> let me tell you. i would not describe it as having had enough. that is not it at all. when you are the speaker of the house, your number one responsible to the institution. having a vote like this in the institution, i do not think is very healthy. so i have done everything i can
1:17 pm
over my term as speaker to strengthen the institution. isnkly, my mood today another step in that effort to strengthen the institution. washington be different when you leave this institution? what can people expect the house and congress to do if you are not there? if the congress stays focused on the american people's priorities, there will be no problem at all. while we have differences between democrats and republicans, the goal here, as one of the leaders is to find the common ground. i talked to president bush and president obama this morning. i talked to all of my legislative leaders who a very good relationship with. the leaders have to be able to work with each other, trust each other, defines the following -- to and get things done
1:18 pm
find the common ground and get things done. if they continue on what is important to the american people, they will get along just fine. >> [indiscernible] >> i would say that they were shocked. i told mr. mccarthy about two minutes before i spoke what i was going to do. i did tell him five times because he did not believe me. i'm not going to be here to vote on the next speaker, but that is up to the members. having said that, i think that kevin mccarthy would make an excellent speaker an. >> first person you told? >> i told my wife. she said, good. [laughter] my chief and i staff top late
1:19 pm
yesterday. -- top late yesterday and he told him today might be the day. i told him i was sleeping on it. and so i told my wife i might make a announcement tomorrow. what do you mean? time to go. and is morning i woke up walked up to starbucks as usual and got my coffee and came back and read and walked up and saw everybody, and got home and thought yet today is the day. my senior staff was having a meeting at 8:45 a.m., and i walked in before i opened the house, and told them this is the day. it was going to happen someday, why not today? what advice do you give him
1:20 pm
to avoid the pitfalls you'll come across? >> i tell kevin, if he is the numbereaker, that his one responsible use to protect the institution. nobody else around here has an obligation like this. secondly, i would tell them the same thing i have just told you. you do the right thing every day for the right things will happen. you all know me, my colleagues know me. i'm straight with them. they may not like the answer they get, but they will get an honors answer everything will tightly come to my office. it is an easy way for me to do my job. [indiscernible] all of the stuff i read about in the paper. theally do not want
1:21 pm
institution heart, and i do not want my colleagues hurt. i do not want but my colleagues all -- put my colleagues to roll this. >> what will you miss? >> all of you. [laughter] i don't know what i'm going to miss, because i have not missed it yet. but i will certainly miss the camaraderie of the house. let me tell you another story. it was really interesting. maxine waters and, a democrat from southern california, came here 25 years ago in the same class. there is nothing about my politics and maxine waters politics that are anywhere near close. but yesterday about 5:30 p.m. she call my office. and she said, i
1:22 pm
watched you for 25 years we came together, and i watched your career. i watched you today, and i want to tell you something. i am proud of you. i have the best relationships on both sides of the aisle because i treat people fairly and i treat them honestly, so i'm going to miss my colleagues, yes. [indiscernible] several republicans i talked today say they don't think a new speaker will make any difference . >> as i mentioned earlier, the fact that i did this with my colleagues this morning, and then we proceeded to have an hour and a half conversation, i
1:23 pm
thought was a unifying moment. and the folks call for living by the golden rule yesterday, hope springs eternal. >> talk about what you think your legacy is and your accomplishments and what you will do. [laughter] >> i was never in the legacy business. you all heard me say, i argue a guy with a big job. i never thought i would be in congress, much less ever be speaker. but people know me as being fair, being honest, and being straightforward. trying to do the right thing everything -- everyday on behalf of the country. i do not need any more than that.
1:24 pm
>> [indiscernible] when you make your decision this morning, you have not have any chime of what to do in the future -- time to think about what you will do in the future. i have no idea. i know i am doing this today for the right reasons. in the right things will happen as a result. thank you. was this because of the house of representatives, john boehner from cincinnati announcing his resignation. the weight of the world looks like he is off the shoulders -- is off his shoulders. betty: he looks a time more lighter after making this announcement. it was stunning to almost everyone. mark: it is interesting because this is a man who seems to
1:25 pm
thrive on the political hand-to-hand combat on capitol hill. as we saw during the press conference, president obama had some very kind things to say about him. he loves his country and is a patriot. before we get to phil mattingly, peter has been standing by with us, very graciously standing by. can we get a quick comment from you about what you thought about the speaker? >> it is always easier at the end of the game. the president can say very nice things now that he is leaving. of course there is concerns that perhaps he resigned because he was not going to be able to hold onto his speakership, which leads to higher probability that the government will shut down next week. betty: that is top of mind for the american public, and particularly for people who have money at stake. phil mattingly standing by in washington for us outside the white house. you were listening along with the rest of us to his press
1:26 pm
conference. give your takeaway here? >> that is the most i've seen or heard of him in months or years since he took the role in january 2011. if you could write the script for the perfect don resignation -- john boehner resignation conference, that would be pretty much as. it was the perfect john boehner resignation. how this usually works is the lawmaker calls multiple people, warns 11 people, and it is a big production when it occurs. nobody over here know about it. john boehner relayed the story, and i've heard it number of people say that he found out two minutes before he walked into the private conference meeting and informed his lawmakers that this was something he did. went home, he thought about
1:27 pm
it, woke up this morning, he prayed about it, and decided that this was the right time. this is john boehner in the nutshell, and this is the way he and his team would want to go out. mark: speaker weiner did not anoint kevin mccarthy as his successor, but he did they he would be an excellent choice. is representative mccarthy at this point the likely successor? aids andking with lawmakers since this announcement, yes. kevin mccarthy has the ability to get people around him for a speakership run more than anybody else. the question is who will conservatives try to put up who won'tm, but also try to take kevin mccarthy's place. some lawmakers say this is the position that the far right wing will shoot for. kevin mccarthy is not one who is >> relationship with the white house, but is one who recruited a lot of these members who have
1:28 pm
been so problematic for john boehner up to this point. -- wanting top up keep in mind, while john boehner is leaving, there's still a government to run. >> with all due respect to the speaker and his announcement, we still have to stop their actions in shutting down government. clean,ortunity for a continuing resolution is an absolute necessity. >> across the conference but i have talked to, everybody thinks that this move think that there is no government shutdown. but what over the next speaker is, it will not be long before they are dealing with these types of you see situations as well its rotation as we will reach the debt ceiling, and he will be putting a short-term bill on the house floor next to that will only take us through november.
1:29 pm
he is facing challenges right off the bat. betty: is it problematic that he's sticking around until the end of next month? should we just get on with it? what happens now? >> this month gives them a transition time. lawmakers are going to want to run races for these positions. that takes time. it takes time to campaign internally. he is trained as a continuity to this process. first and foremost he takes the need to be the guy who negotiates with democrats off the table of the next speaker. he will take all those arrows next week when that clean funding resolution almost certainly passes. that leaves a clean slate for whoever is the next leadership team is. this is not an anointment process. he will not step up and become speaker. there will be campaigns and raises. when john boehner's doing right now is serving as the bridge to
1:30 pm
that point. mark: there was also the news this afternoon that is an obama and his news conference with the visiting president, what were some of the highlights to come out of that? >> the big focus, the big g takeaway was the climate agreement. china national the big issue underlying everything has been cyber. and presidentals obama saying they reach some sort of understanding. there would be a high-level dialogue between the two governments about what they are saying in the cyber arena if there is perception of attacks. the one thing that the president hinted at that is most important on this issue. actions speak louder than words. the u.s. does not necessarily believe what the chinese say
1:31 pm
publicly. negotiations and talks between the two countries are ongoing about some type of broader's agreement. there is a wild west situation. agreement is what both countries committed to reaching. >> thank you. us-china side of the equation i am curious to know how you feel how the visit has gone and what we heard from both presidents on the relationship. >> i believe with the last comment that actions speak louder than words. whether it is speaker john boehner or china if you believe markets prefer certainty to uncertainty, we don't know what is going to happen.
1:32 pm
the chinese intervention in their markets as well as what is happening in washington are all keys and further uncertainty which means there is going to be more volatility in the equity markets in particular. if china cannot turn its economy around, if there is still some concerns about the currency, how does that impact the u.s. and how much exposure does the u.s. have? >> prices are made at the margin. if you look at the commodity indices in general, they are. they have not rallied on this news. we are exposed in the sense that demand is weekend will continue to be weak because of the congressional uncertainty. it do not have fiscal spending and policy that does not help. the fed has said we are throwing in the towel. scarlet: given that we are waiting for actions rather than
1:33 pm
words. time with thise resignation are you still as confident, are you a bit more worried about the state of the economy isre going or did any of this make a difference to you? >> it has reinforced my priority coming into the day which is that the economy is slow. it has not been able to reach escape velocity. to put has not decided the jets on. when you look at general valuations that is a concern. i am not particularly bullish on where markets are heading right now. we don't have an indication yet that we are sliding off the rails. are you concerned about where the fed is headed? plots everywhere
1:34 pm
and people saying they did not hear enough from janet yellen yesterday. did you have enough to allay concerns and where do you think the fed is going forward? guest: it is a great cottage industry. sheink she feels [indiscernible] willtion will be low and continue to be low. getting rid of the uncertainty is probably not a negative but i don't think it will have much of an impact. rlett: thank you for joining us and for standing by with us for so long. sign off here. the politics of

1:51 pm
republican conference room we heard john make the speech to us at nine. we were surprised that he would do so and he would do so as quickly as they did. the turnaround will be sometime next month in october. did you haveoblems with john boehner's leadership? we were in a lot of challenging situations whether it is the problems with the administration, whether it is the fact we have not had an administration that has been responsive to congress or to the american people, and for those reasons you see in the polls across the country as well that the american public is frustrated as mi with the direction that washington has been going. ofre's why you see percentage of the polling
