5:05 am
evaluation of turkish lira and that blue dot up there is when mr. one came in. if i blow this up, it is the dollar lira with president erewhon. president erdogan. a weaker lira again. the turkish lira is a litmus paper for the system. it has been terrible, then stability, then really really bad and looking for new stability right now. >> trying to figure out where to go next. that is the big question. let's go to our middle east managing editor in istanbul. our investors reacting to what we saw friday and the weekend? what is the sense in the investment community? >> well, i mean, this was the first chance that people reacting over the weekend. at the moment, the markets are

5:07 am
joining us talking about where we go next. let's fun out. ernest neville-jones join us now. she is the former minister to counterterrorism in the united kingdom. also have the chief european economist. good morning. your reaction. given us a sense of where this fits into the narrative you see developing in turkey. and: quite a surprise -- >> quite a surprise. never good for the public or economics. we do know that president erdogan does want to establish a more presidential and i think probably more authoritarian system. and that is his instincts, to tighten political holds. decrease democracy. the thing i find most worrying
5:08 am
is the suspension of a large chunk of the judiciary. i think it is a moment for a very great deal of active diplomacy on the part of our turkish friends, europeans, americans, to help get this back on the rails. the turks have to decide what kind of constitution they went, but i think we can help. if it is 20 authoritarian. and we don't want to get into one of those situations where we are barely talking to each other. a nato member. on the front line with syria. an important role with the migrants, refugees, and at the a place for a lot of western operations. really important. as your commentators have been there has been a lot of
5:09 am
support in the streets and he the streets. when he calls a coup, it indicates he sees it as a political opportunity. tom: baroness, what needs to be the response? if we look at a president with 50% of the vote and we: a generic statement or an asian vote or islam phoned, how much will be west recalibrate after the coup? fairness neville-jones: let's not leave turkey to go on its own path being shunned by everybody. that is calculated to get the worst outcome. i would like to see western foreign ministers and the u.s. talking directly. having really good conversations at this moment, and boris

johnson does have good ancestry to take this one on. among other things, you know the u.k. really means it when they say they are not going to lock down the world. tom: is turkey and emerging market. 10-11, g-seven, is turkey and emerging market? the alphabet soup you deal with everything. >> it is critical for europe. one of the biggest. to play a keying role and a key role in europe. we suffer repercussions so we see economic for turkey. at the same time, remember the whole migration crisis has europe.he politics in turkey is currently hosting over
5:11 am
2.7 million. it is difficult to the strategy to deal with migration and security. >> a lot into that deal, if that and presidentrt erdogan on indicates he is not widely happy, it seems to be priced in. nobody in europe is interested right now in sing that. remember, there are dutch elections at the beginning of next year. french elections in may. germany elections in october. this is critical because migration, security as a weak core of what is happening in europe and the u.k., so if this deal falls apart, you will see thousands of migrants coming back into the european union through turkey. that could be a major, major shock. tom: we will continue. neville-jones is here.

so poor, this was the moment to do it. it was my expectation they will do it later. i think the general analysis we're all going to face is a slowdown. the prospect for higher inflation. you cannot argue with that. to me, it is a timing issue. i think they will find it in due summer ormetime in very early. it will be a boost to the economy. we'reh barclay capital, exhausted with lyrical events. back to the script, are we just out of monetary tools? is the role message of summer of 2016 that the monetary gain is over? we ares true that pushing the limits, no doubt. remember, the 50 basis points. we think they will cut at least 45 basis points.

5:33 am
>> he understood he had found some way of getting through. i think what we see here, what we saw with the arab spring, you can bring the crowds out onto the street using that method. he has done it himself. the differences he has the power of the state the hind him and we will see what happens next. he was able to use that as a lever to start a counter to. .ction against the coup it may take a get through immediately. tom: it speaks of rules that have changed and rules that of not change. we had the experience of the london school of economics as well. as a child, part of the lebanon uproar and revolution and two more in the childhood. truly one of the world's experts and al qaeda, isis, and turkey. you've had a number of days to reflect on the turmoil.

one is going to use this particular moment as he has had, a gift from god. military?? purge the cleanse the military? crackdown against the judiciary and political rivals? i mean, i do not understand. why would you basically dismissed 3000 judges and prosecutors? this tells me a great deal that president erdogan is going to use this particular moment to really cleanse the political system of any rivals in the military and also, you know, in the political landscape broadly speaking. tom: when i look at the new turkey and the new military that mr. erdogan will have, they need to do the ancient questions of the kurds. how will president erdogan, with the 50% support he adds, with the islamist support, how will he regenerate the kurdish relationship? >> i mean, i think, this is what
5:36 am
i meant. president erdogan, the challenge is to basically begin the process of reconciliation not only with his political rivals in turkey but also with the kurds. what you have now, time, as you know in the past year is a kind of mini-civil war between the turkish state and the kurds. especially between the radical and military segment. i do not expect any major shift in the way president erdogan has dealt with the kurds, because remember this has to do with quasi-nationalism. he is using the fight against the pkk to strengthen his position. that is why the next few days and few months will tell us a great deal whether president erdogan would rise up to the challenge in particular vis-a-vis the kurds and his political rivals at home. direction of travel is
5:37 am
less democracy, not more. treating the kurds more harshly than warfare. what would they believe he is going to step up pressure mark isn't it likely to get more of this many civil war as you describe it? >> that is what i fear. the early signs are not reassuring. when you basically dismiss 3000 judges in hand prosecutors, i do not believe for a moment that judges and prosecutors were part of the coup. obviously what he is doing and what he is in for a much is this is within the state. he is trying to cleanse the political system. he was this as a gift from god quote unquote to crown himself as the unrivaled leader. >> will diplomatic overtures that he should not go down this route be in any way acted upon? >> look, whether it is president obama the french, saying, respect the role of law.
5:38 am
you are part of europe. the europeano join union you must respect the law. president erdogan does what he does. he does not take any hostages. is weak.ition his party, ak, is the dominant party. when you have the weak opposition you can do whatever you can and it provides president erdogan with the ideological domination to dominate the political in skip for the next 10 years or so. tom: he stood at the airport in front of the portrait. -- die friday night? >> done although some has been dying for the past 20 or 30 -- dunnalism has been dying for the past 20 or 30 years. the reason the coup failed was
5:39 am
not because of the ineptitude of the military. president erdogan has been able to create a broadly based support. millions of turks have benefited from the economic revolution in turkey. remember, turkey has the largest in the world. millions have become part of the bital class and that is why this particular coup has failed. not because the military officers and junior officers did not come off as planned, and they did not, but because turkey has shifted. president of about the one is the new face of the new turkey. update everybody on what the secretary of state has been saying. john kerry is speaking in brussels talking about what is happening in turkey. talking about the latest situation, saying that -- let me bring you the latest details.

because you are going to have to sell a lot of things in the u k to find this current deficit. it is about 140 billion pounds. at an annual rate it is at about 6% or 7% of gdp. it is unsustainable and we have to look at ways to bring in money anyway possible. if it is foreign direct investment in buying u.k. companies i think that should be welcomed as an opportunity to in which incomes can be adjusted and it will have to be adjusted to reduce the deficit. >> what would suggest that what happened? what does the government and bank need to do next? >> i think the only way to close the current deficit for role is to reduce incomes. i mean, there are a lot of people thing left to devalue the pound and so on. but that is only part of the solution. the reason you have a current account deficit is because in britain you consume more than you produce so you either have to produce more or you have to consume less and the quickest

mark halperin and tom heilemann tonight with their expertise. she does not work in newport beach, she holds court in washington looking at policy. we could top for two hours this morning, there's is that much going on. let me cut to the chase. is donald trump throw-business? >> that is part of what we are looking for me few days, to see whether his positions on different sectors, on pharmaceuticals, on financial reforms reveal themselves and one thing that has been difficult in terms of analyzing to what donald trump presidency would mean for the market as he has not given very many policy details. is he pro-business? it remains in question in certainly his statements about corporate tax reform would be positive for business but there are not enough details to make an .ssumption tom: sec. clinton, in various

shades supports. do you sense washington lobbyists are gop-like in banking, finance, investments? would they find comfort with a democratic candidate? libby: that is part of hillary clinton's challenge. we will see that revealed in terms of who she picks for vice president, for instance. policy advisers are. it will be an indication of how far she will go on finance. obviously, bernie sanders has brought her farther to the left hand she is starting to pivot to the center. her vp choice will be a big first step in that direction and if she wants to u.s. wage the business-minded folks, ticking someone like tim kaine from virginia versus elizabeth warren who has been more extreme on financial issues. the as we try to understand phenomenon of trump, is the exit

hillary clinton's weaknesses. but he is going to be clear in specific and disciplined him driving that message to in america that will be watching. tom: can he send the message he sent for months, the battleground states. at the margin, he needs to changes rhetoric to the sununu tone. a more moderate, measured tone. mr. sununu: i don't have there is a sununu on. maybe better language and rhetoric. to me, his strengths are talking about job creation, turning the economy around, his experience in the event sector, trade, immigration. people's speak to nationalism. maybe xenophobia, but it is on people's minds. as i said, immigration is something he has been talking about. i do not expect them to stop. lastly, the fact that hillary clinton is the old legacy. a carry-on legacy.

6:30 am
here is taylor riggs. recep erdogan once the u.s. to hand over -- wants the u.s. to hand over the person he blames for the coup. turkey would have to prove its accusations. meanwhile, the u.s. secretary of state, john kerry, is urging the turkish government to uphold them aquatic standards following the failed coup. john kerry is in brussels for a meeting with eu foreign ministers. global news 24 hours a day, powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries, i am taylor riggs. this is bloomberg. tom? tom: now joining us, james stavridis of the united states navy. of course, our nato supreme commander a number of years ago, and someone who has been in the news recently.
6:31 am
admiral, we are thrilled to have you with us. why did this to fail? you studied this at war college at newport, rhode island. why did the to fail? mes: i thought this coup was more beer hall pooch then it was geostrategic earthquake. the military had a set of lingering grievances on a slow burn for almost 10 years per they took a shot but they were disorganized and did not have the senior players. only one four-star officer involved. i do not think they put it together effectively, and the people rose up against it, and the rest of the military helped crush it. is: part of being in europe no death penalty. we hear talk of a renewed death penalty in turkey. how do we adapt to the realities that mr. erdogan faces?
6:32 am
james: tom, as we look at the aftermath of this, the numbers are staggering. there are 6000 military judges -- military, judges, prosecutors who have been rounded up. 25,000 leaders have been arrested. tension and emotion are running extremely high. i think there is a possibility that the turkish government will seek the death penalty against the senior leaders. how do you square that against european norms? it will be very difficult and it will set turkey back on its path to membership in the european union. guy: good morning. it is guy in london. was this destined to fail? james: there is a conspiracy theory running around that either president erdogan or members of his team kind of inspired this and let it bubble in order to bring a crackdown in
6:33 am
place. i do not feel that. as i talked to senior turkish officials and friends, as i look at the news and the body language on erdogan himself, i think they felt a real threat from this coup, and i do not think it was manufactured. guy: is turkey and reliable nato member? james: well, historically, they have been. turkey has been involved in every operation. alliedwas the supreme commander, i counted on turkey in afghanistan, libya, the balkans, piracy. they were 100% in with nato. they hosted the largest nato headquarters. the internal distraction that comes out of that is going to make them less reliable. in one sense the big winner of all this is the islamic state. tom: we used the lira as a litmus paper. bring up the lira chart right
6:34 am
now, which shows the shock and awe of friday. thanks to matt miller and mark crumpton for terrific coverage friday evening. we come down into a very normal quiet. there is no quiet in our air base turkey. explain within your experience base,e u.s. has an air whether it is in turkey, the philippines, wherever, and it is controlled as well by turkish civilians and turkish military. did that looked odd to you friday night when we heard of turkish involvement off our military base? james: not at all, tom. a very common construct in these ownership.al-key these are going to be sovereign territories of the host nation state. typically the host nation will provide an outer ring of security, the u.s. will provide the inner ring of security. it is normal and logical to see interaction between the two. one was concerning was the fact
6:35 am
that those operations were frozen for a period of time. we did not have effective communication into that base. it is a sensitive, strategic base in every connection. guy: one of the concerns is the deal that has been struck .etween europe and ankara is that deal at risk, do you think? james: i think it is not. it is in the interest both of the turks, who are looking for the money they have been promised to make this work, as well as in europe's interest. nato, the european union, will continue to work to facilitate and zone between turkey greece, where so many of the migrants came last summer. because it is in the interest of both parties, i think that deal will go forward. the thing that could upset it could be a violent,
6:36 am
french-revolution-level, off-with-their heads attitude in the streets. that is not likely to do so. tom: i want to go over two themes. one is what we just saw in nice and paris, france, which is a moment of silence directly related -- these are live pictures from these -- it was really something at the top of the hour. admiral, this is a pan-european problem. it is not just about a coup or a tragedy in nice. how do institutions in europe get their hands around what has become a chronic problem? tom, i will give you three things to think about in the european context. one is international cooperation. this is why brexit is so disturbing. anything that creates centrifugal force and pulls the union of four -- and pulls the
6:37 am
creates -- second, homeland security forces, the military, and 30's private-public cooperation to develop the technologies, the big data, the quantum data. all of that put together i think is the future of working these problems, recognizing a few will get through no matter what we do. tom: in our agreement to have you on today, we suggested we would not talk about u.s. domestic politics. you have been a little too visible for the people up at recently.chool so instead of asking you about your future, i would like to ask you about the new vogue. you joined the navy when it was the least popular since world war ii. you joined the navy when it was not john mccain and george bush senior and others. of lookings new vote at -- what is this new vogue of foring at military men
6:38 am
senior operations? where is it coming from? james: you are nice to raise that as an issue. i appreciate it. there is a sense of the military as an admired institution, extremely different from when i entered in the 1970's. that sort of sense of accomplishment of stability i think appeals, and whether or not we see military individuals enter into domestic politics in a serious way remains to be seen. but i think it speaks well for the military, but it speaks well for the nation, the mutual respect between the two. tom: james stavridis, thank you so much. we will continue. carl weinberg with us, patiently waiting, with high frequency economics. i think i could talk to five hours this morning with carl weinberg and never run out of things to talk about. i will be a little busy after the noon hour today.
