5:24 am
exempt from enforcement. >> reporter: after hearing that, some of the surrogates latino spokes people who have been working with the trump campaign quit this morning. one was tweeting about it saying he felt that he was disappointed and felt he was misled by what trump had said previously in the speech last night. >> any indication about discussions between the mexican president and trump on nafda? trump said he wants to renegotiate it. did the mexican president seem to be on board with that idea. >> he seemed to think that some of trump's and he didn't specify this, but he seemed to think some of trump's plans were threatening to mexico. in this case, trump emphasized yesterday that nafda seemed to be working better for mexico than u.s. and wanted to try to rebalance things. >> for a newer economy. thank you tracie for the update. >> do you think hillary clinton was hoping to be able to
5:25 am
criticize trump for backtracking or doubling down. >> either. >> this was such a doubling down and had to change her tune accordingly. i imagine she was wanting to criticize him for backtracking. this is nothing new for her. >> the campaign set expectations. in fact he himself used the word softening in an interview with fox last week. it was unexpected, but especially after that. did you see the news conference in mexico. >> i heard it. very surprising turn about in terms of what we were lead to believe was going to happen. now to sports. could be the play of the night for major league baseball. we head over to chicago with the cubs facing te pittsburg pirate lift add ball down third base. shifted into a higher gear and ran it down making a great catch for the first out. ran more than 100 feet and

5:30 am
we mentioned jack ma. sat down with the alibaba founder and chairman earlier this morning. joins us now from china with more. what did he say, eunice. >> reporter: well, you know, jack ma really had a message for g20 leaders. we need more globalization, not less. the founder of alibaba sharing discussions here with hundreds of businesses around the g20 summit. the summit is going to be focusing on a whole host of issues. coming at a challenging time for the economy. one of the issues that's going to be in the jend is the run nig high trade sentiment. put forth a proposal the electronic world trade platform. an online exchange to help promote global trade especially for smaller companies. here's what he had to say. >> we have to improve the globalization.
5:31 am
now, this period is called the growing pain of globalization. the last 20 years, the globalization was helping big companies developed nations so if we can figure out a way to help a small business, help young people, help the young people to globalize, that's something we can up the ewtp. >> reporter: and ma is a major propoebt of free trade. says he's been promoting the idea to 30 countries. this g20 is going to be the start of it all. he's been speaking with the chinese government to make sure the chinese government is on board. as you know, we've been reporting this for quite some time. many companies within the community here in china have been complaining or concerned about what they see as rising tax by china. a push forth for local champions. jack ma said he wasn't too
5:32 am
concerned about the rhetoric around the u.s. campaign. >> i'm 52 years older now. i've seen a lot of american presidential elections and every time before the elections, they're always anti-china. many years ago anti-soviet union, now china. after election, people will calm down. trade is a trade. business is a business. i don't worry about it. i think after election, people back to their sense a. >> reporter: with that perception of a rise in protectionism within china has been a reason, guys, why china has become such a punching bag within the u.s. presidential election. >> yes, china sort of sharing that platform with other countries this year. eunice, this sounded like
5:33 am
statesman talking about g20, talking about big sort of issues. i'm just looking a the stock price of alibaba trading near highs. gotten some momentum lately on the back of good quarters. >> reporter: yeah, we did. we talked about the business. he was looking forward for alibaba saying i asked him about changes in the reporting. the company as you know has been moving away from relying on gross merchandise volume which is really a gauge for the health of an e-commerce business. towards reporting four different segments. he said the focus of the company going forward is cloud computing, entertainment, some of their more innovative initiatives as well. he said they made those changes so that investors in the united states would be able to better understand the company's business and where they are positioning themselves for the
5:34 am
future. >> eunice, thank you very much. great stuff. excellent interview for us in china. the g20 is fascinating. obama's last trip to asia as president. when he started labeling himself in 2009 as the first pacific president, you. >> the pivot. >> he would have been coming back with more and he's not. >> so much so that treasury secretary had to defend g20 and all the progress it's made. people in the market look at it as a photo on. >> absolutely. we'll be following the headlines out of that. jack ma clearly having a part as well. >> if you missed donald trump's speech on immigration, here's what happened. self declared softening on the immigration issue was nowhere to be found. instead trump recommitted to hard line policy, including mass the deportation after repeating horrifies taels of murders and rains documented by undocumented
5:35 am
immigrants. trump said anyone who enters illegally would be subject to deportation. >> to all the politicians, pol donors and special interests, hear these words from me and all of you today, there is only one core issue in the immigration debate and that issue is the well-being of the american people. >> trump again somehowed mention co-would pay for the wall. this came hours after trump met with mexico's president who said his country would not fund trump's wall. more on the speech and headlines on the rest of the day here on cnbc. let's give you a quick check on the negotiabglobal market. s&p and dow managed to finish
5:36 am
the month strong. dow futures losing a bit of air throughout the morning. still up 43 points. s&p up 4 and nasdaq up about 15. this ahead of some key data points. initial jobless claims on thursday. jobless reports manufacturing numbers and more. as for the early action in europe, you mentioned european soft, but strong in the uk. bouncing back post-brexit. i would just say the ftse 100 in the uk is flat. the rest of the embassies stronger. as for the action in asia overnight. hong kong shares are the stars lately. highest level since last year for that market. shanghai comp closing lower. nikkei bouncing off the weaker yen. we've seen in the last two se s sessions. finishing higher by .25%. second quarter productivity and
5:37 am
labor cost. at 10:00 a.m. look for august services index and july construction spending. big auto makers release sales and cleveland fed president speaking this afternoon. joins us now to discuss markets more detail, steven global investment strategist. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> we've seen an interesting move in terms of rate hike expectations since jackson hole last week. it seemed to soften yesterday. we saw the dollar retreat a bit and the pound jumping today. what's your latest expectations. >> for one thing, it seems it's pulling forward a modest amount of tightening. it's not changing the amount of tightening over the course of next year. not a powerful message being taken in the marketplace, at least. folks from vice chair stanley fischer raarguing this is more
5:38 am
conventional tightening. good deal of uncertainty right now. shame so much relies on friday's employment report. even if it was revised data, in august revisions have averaged 62,000. it wouldn't tell us about the future. it's amazing the wholeo outlook is going to depend on a single month employment data in the summer. >> what does that mean for if markets. >> certainly softened us up a bit. hurt the rotation within the marketplace. i think our story really here is that low return expectations, low yields everywhere, have made the value of stocks higher and their future returns lower. you see rotation away from things like utilities into financials. those that would move with some change in the rate outlook. >> as that got further to go, the rotation. big divergent still year to date. >> in terms of relative valuati valuations, yooults are trading
5:39 am
like growth stocks. this is about exceptionally low bond yields. difficult to go from there. whether or not we're going get a bit of relief depends on friday's number. as i told you, you really can't tell much about the future from a prerevised august data. >> big picture because it's on our minds relate to the idea of protectionism and putting up walls, physically or metaphorically between other countries and trade we saw trump in mexico. this idea of nafda. would investors be wise to listen to what jack ma said there, tune out the election noise. he was talking about the china bashing, but in general this idea that global trade could really slow down. >> investors have been calm about the selection. part of this issue of brexit of course was don't believe the polls. well, maybe you should believe the polls. i took a look before coming on, ten swing states in the last elections have voted for different parties not that i
5:40 am
know right now pointing to secretary clinton. there's much more to say about all of that. there are few places, mexican peso for example which has been exceptionally weak and parting ways with other currencies and parting ways with latin america shows impact. in reality, we have to think about that and whether there will be any real trade disruptions. unfortunately, fundamentally, trade has been slowing and deteriorating and underperforming global growth. that's a fascinating thing that has nothing to do with politics. >> quickly mentioning trade and stroker data out of the uk this morning. even brexit, seems like the uk is doing fine. that's a pretty stark example of the type of things we're fearing. >> there's a fascinating issue there too. on both sides of the debate,
5:41 am
there was challenge ratiexagger >> probably. >> there's not going to be an investment boom to add capacity to the uk. you would run factories hotter at the lower exchange rate to export to the rest of the european union. i think pretty clearly positive. you see it in the data. >> the jury is still out. it could be a slower moving train wreck than thought or could be absolutely totally overexaggerated. >> steven, great to have you with us this morning. city private bank. now to today's top trending stories. the black eyed peas reuniting to remake 2003 hit song where is the love. the song released in response to 9/11 is now calling for calm and aimed at ending gun violence. new rendition of the song will include the likes of jamie fox, justin timberlake, kendall

5:46 am
sit time for must reads. my pick in the "washington post" titled congress is showing how not to fight the zika virus. it is notable because it comes from the directors of disease control and prevention and the national institutes of health. they write that this is a major issue and the money so far that has gone to fighting zika and to trying to find a some sort of solution here is being drawn from other places, and this is going to run out in september they say without additional funds. the path forward is unclear. the progress against zika will slow considerably. the cdc will have to reduce

5:48 am
radio station, but moving on, the main comments he was making this morning interestingly in an irish newspaper very much about what he called the response from the european commission, total political crap. that's an irish newspaper this morning. >> here's the quote. >> the irish independent newspaper, in fact, well worth reading this interview. no one did anything wrong. ireland is being picked on and it's unacceptable and its total political crap. >> gets your attention. we're keeping an eye on global stocks right now. u.s. futures pointing to a higher start in what is traditionally the worst month of the year. the month of september. will it be a volatile one. we're going to talk when we come back the depo my economist. ahead of the next 48 hours. you're watching cnbc. first in business.

she's going to pull the football back before the september meeting. our call still remains december hike. >> what do you see coming in the data in the next 48 hours and months ahead. >> has nothing to do with the data. just has to do with people getter in versus when they are about to take another step. she's going to walk to the edge, look down and say that's a pretty big jump. >> more market dependent than data dependent. >> she's been going to the edge of the board a lot. she doesn't have the confidence. >> doesn't seem like it. yet everything is going her way. unemployment is very low. participation rate is where it should be. wages look like they are picking up. now would be the time to hike rates before something happens she can't control, but every time we've gotten to this point, she steps back. >> we've seen dollar strength pouzed a bit over the last couple of days, but still seeing dollar strength against the yen.
