6:01 am
happy monday to you. all that coming up, top story, violence at republican presidential donald trump rallies dominating conversation ahead of next 2016 battleground. six remaining candidates fighting for five key states, i were concluding winner-take-all, florida and ohio. blake burman in the miami with blake, good morning to you. reporter: good morning, maria, to you as well. we are in miami and that puts home to florida 99 delegates in winner-take-all state. donald trump has been in and out of florida traveling around states up for grabs on tuesday. the consistent theme throughout over the weekend has been interruptions at his events by protesters. of course nothing more highlighted than what happened friday night in chicago when his event had to be canceled for massive protests there. trump has been somewhat unapologetic for what is going on. bernie sanders has accused, he
6:02 am
has accused trump of basically inciting this. trump called bernie sanders, called donald trump a pathological liar. trump as i mentioned pretty much unapologetic for what has been going on at his rally. >> nobody has been hurt at all of. as big as these rallies nobody has ever been hurt. we talk and try and be good. i will tell you some of the protesters are very rough and they're bad dudes and they swing and they punch. nobody ever talks about that in the media. reporter: here we are in miami. this is the hometown as well to marco rubio. he is fighting for his political future here on tuesday. he will make four stops throughout the state of florida, starting in the north and ending here in miami later tonight. his last minute goal is to try to sway as many trump voters as possible. >> we must win here. we must win here not only because it will launch our campaign but we must win here, we must send a message to the
6:03 am
country, we'll knot allow the conservative movement and republican party to get hijacked by someone who is neither a republican nor a conservative. reporter: here in florida over the weekend, maria, polls are consistent showing trump 20 points ahead of rubio. "real clear politics" average puts trump up 18 points here. 99 delegates so far, the second most in play behind texas coming up here on tuesday. maria: big day. thanks so much, blake burman in miami. want to bring in michael warren, staff writer at "the weekly standard." good to see you, sir. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. maria: your take on growing violence at donald trump rallies. trump is saying most of the protesters coming from bernie sanders, a claim that sanders denies. listen to this. >> a lot of them come from bernie sanders, whether he wants to say it or not. if he says no he is lying. bernie sanders, they have sanders signs all over the place and made by the same people that make the regular bernie sanders signs.
6:04 am
they're professionally made. >> to say that we organized that totally untrue. mr. trump i think is getting very nervous. he is catching on to the fact that the american people do not support a candidate like trump whose verbiage, whose language, whose rhetoric incites violence. maria: michael, good morning to you. what is your take on all of this? >> i think donald trump is definitely wrong when he says that bernie sanders campaign is sending these people. i don't doubt that a lot of these left-wing, agitation groups are supporting bernie sanders, the type of people who might be supporting bernie sanders but they're definitely not being sent by the campaign. they're also not really, there is no right for them to come and disrupt these campaign events. and i think donald trump is right about that. on the other hand, donald trump has said some i think incendiary rhetoric and encouraged a lot of
6:05 am
his supporters to go ahead and fight back. i think that is a big break the politics as usual or normal politics is done in this country, when there is some kind of a outbreak of, you know, protests at a political event, a lot of times political candidates say, let them say their peace and move on. donald trump is different. he says punch back. that caused a lot more problems than there would be, talking about a ted cruz rally. maria: really important point. anthony scaramucci made the point during the commercial break. you would think you're allowed to go to have a peaceful rally without being interrupted but the response of donald trump, how do you see it? >> i'm just, me, i'm, michael would say that they had to know there were going to be paid protesters at these events, going back to occupy wall street, maria. you know that is the game. i'm surprised by his response. and the whole, throwing gasoline on top of it, how does that look presidential? how does that help him win the
6:06 am
independents and more moderate people that he is going to need eventually to be president, if that is where he want to go with this. >> this kind of rhetoric, listen i find it repugnant what the progressive left-wing liberals have been doing on college campuses trying to shut down free speech, trying to shut down conservative speech. maria: i agree with you. >> however, to your point, when you're whipping these supporters into a frenzy saying punch them in the face, talking about, my campaign will look at paying legal fees of that old dude who basically elbowed that protester in the face down in north carolina. it might gin up support with your most fervent supporters and get them to the polls. if you win the nomination and have to run against maybe hillary clinton, it is not going to help him. >> i also think, you were talking about paid protesters but there is also a natural attraction, if internet is full of protesters being bullied, that will bring people to your
6:07 am
events, saying i hope you try to bully me because i will fight back. it is like match to gasoline. you will bring to the event the people who will most likely cause a problem. maria: yeah, even when he says, michael warren, trick him out, go home to mommy. nicole: comments he has said in response to some protesters has been fueling the fire, hasn't it? i remember just last week, anthony said, go home to mommy. getting everybody ramped up to fight. >> yeah, i thought marco rubio over the weekend actually had the best analysis of this, which is that donald trump seems to bring out the worst of everybody, of his opponents, of his supporters and i think that a lot of people in these states, again we're only halfway through the nominating process here. a lot of republican voters in these states may look at this, think, gosh, we want to blow up washington, i don't know if we want to blow up the entire country. >> i will point out something that "the wall street journal"
6:08 am
notes in editorial today, not like donald trump has been a champion of free speech himself because in recent weeks he talked about changing the libel laws making it easier to sue the press. he likes to threaten to sue the press. he doesn't find room, so again, he wants to go after the first amendment in the same way that the left-wing protesters on college campuses want to go after it. >> michael, let me ask you something. we've waited all year for something to actually slow trump's momentum down. every time he says something over the top or there is some event that would derail almost any other candidate, causes him to pick up momentum. do you think this might be the final straw where this really turns off a broad swath of potential supporters? >> i'm not going to wade into that minefield trying to predict this. there has been possibly a cumulative effect of all of this. let's not forget.
6:09 am
i do think donald trump is a good example of somebody who can manipulate media coverage to get things off of the things he doesn't want to talk about. just late last week we were talking about a reporter from "breitbart news" who now resigned from "breitbart news" who was roughed up by the campaign manager of donald trump's campaign. that was starting to look really bad. i think media was starting to at least reconsider its coverage of donald trump and now we're talking about something else. you know that is the way it goes. this is something donald trump is master of us distracting us from talking about things he doesn't want to talk about. >> that is not trump's responsibility. all of these presidential candidates, i'm saying hillary clinton and bernie sanders have to come out and say don't go to the rallies. do not protest. maria: get your take on comment from hillary clinton, talking about how she is quote, already getting endorsements from foreign leaders. listen to this, michael. >> donald trump is responsible for what happens at his events.
6:10 am
he is the person who -- [applause] who has for months now been, not just inciting violence but applauding violence. i am already receiving messages from leaders, i'm having foreign leaders ask if they can endorse me to stop donald trump. i mean, this is up to americans, thank you very much. maria: unusual tactic there, michael. >> yeah. i mean, if you're an anti-trump republican you want to tell hillary clinton stop talking. you're only helping donald trump. i don't know it's a weird thing. hillary clinton is wrong that donald trump is completely responsible for what is happening here. those left-wing agitators who are trying to stop people from hearing what he has to say, you know they're in the wrong too but you let's, everybody's, the worst of everybody is coming out here. i do think that this will be a different situation if the republican front-runner were anybody other than donald trump.
6:11 am
maria: we'll see if this impacts number, anthony in florida and in ohio. >> i spent last week in florida, anyways traveling for marketing purposes. hit six cities. the guy is universally liked in florida. maria: bottom a lot of property. >> great businesses. people think he is very effective guy. very likely he is going to win florida. he is probably going to lose ohio at this. maria: they're close too. >> it's close. if he wins ohio and florida, then we have to have a whole other conversation. maybe we need anger management class for the campaign. maria: we'll see. michael warren, good to see you sir. thank you. >> thank you. maria: don't miss our all-star coverage of tomorrow's action begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern. with me, neil cavuto, lou dobbs here on the fox business network. we'll be tuning in ahead of the 7:00 p.m. special coverage right here on "mornings with maria." coming up the justice department has new target,

6:15 am
that's how i own it. maria: welcome back. amtrak train derails in southwest kansas early this morning. cheryl casone with details and other headlines now. >> good morning, maria. good morning, guys. five cars of a amtrak train derailed in kansas just after midnight sending more than two dozen people to the hospital. amtrak statement saying the train was traveling from los angeles to chicago when the passenger cars came off the tracks just after midnight. that was about 20 miles west of dodge city. we're going to keep updating you this morning on that breaking news. well the war on terror escalating. turkey carrying out airstrikes against kurdish rebel targets in northern iraq in retaliation for car bomb attack in the turkish capital of ankara, it killed 36 people and injured 122 others.
6:16 am

"the new york times" is reporting that the justice department is going after facebook owned messaging service whatsapp because it allows users to send encrypted messages. investigators can't descript messages, messages or phone calls. end to end encryption. the sender and recipient can see this but doj can not. they don't have a case yet. "the times" is says they're looking to for the right case to sell to the public even better.
6:17 am
they're comparing this to wiretapping. if you can wiretap somebody in investigation, why can't you get into the whatsapp messaging to build a case against them. maria: you mentioned that as well in terms of wiretapping over the last several weeks that we've been talking about this. anthony, does this show the encryption problem is not just apple issue. it is entire technology industry. you can go back to wiretapping? >> again i've said this a few weeks ago, this is public relations stance by these technology companies. they will eventually give in to the department of justice and the fbi to allow this to happen. they sort of needed to go through the process because of way they market their goods and services maria. this will eventually happen the way the department of justice wants it. let me tell you something, south by southwest, president obama is more or less saying the same thing. he is on the side of those guys. maria: what about people like general hayden who pushed back, darrell eisnaugle is a is has pushed back.
6:18 am
at same time there is broader issue about software to impact anybody's technology anywhere? >> well, again i don't want to get all distopian on everybody here -- maria: not at 6:00 a.m.? >> this is going to happen, whether you want it to happen or not happen, you've got other problems in the united states right now. tough deal with the whole donald trump issue. what do you think will happen if the department of justice is run by donald trump in this situation and comes to the -- >> let me ask you a question. what happens when the chinese go to facebook and whatsapp -- maria: they already are. >> want to spy on americans. that is the other side of this. >> in the case of apple they rolled over for them and moved their servers inside of the great firewall, have all the data you want. so i think you're exactly right. >> apple will push back on that. the justice department in the latest motion in the san bernanadino case accused apple, basically essentially being in bed with the chinese government. apple went, we don't know what
6:19 am
you're talking about. there is a lot of he said/she said. maria: how do we know the truth? how do they operate in china a communist country without giving them access to information? i think it is hard. >> i find it hard to believe they could allow unencrypted device they couldn't break into. maria: not just the u.s. cheryl, thanks for bringing that to us. former congressional budget office director douglas holtz-eakin thinks is the bass candidate for your wallet. latino vote heating up in florida. why latest polls not looking good for marco rubio in his own home state. we're back in a moment. ♪

6:23 am
♪ maria: welcome back. oil prices falling this morning. highes for the year. top story in the "wall street journal" reading, oil price rise could be its own undoing, warning of a possible production boom sending prices crashing once again. phil flynn at cme group with latest this morning. phil, we have got a pretty good move. >> we've had a really good move in this market. a lot is on the fact that u.s. production is falling. a lot of trackers have taken wells off-line. we're seeing signs that opec is actually freezing production already but there is a lot of question mark about what is going to happen. last year when we saw oil prices
6:24 am
come back on, we saw the rigs start to come on in a big way. you know the question is, is that going to happen again and crash prices? that is the big question in this market. there is a even a term they're using in energy industry so frack wad. if the frack wad comes back down zooming they have the money to bring them back on. back to you. maria: we're watching oil, michael. we're looking at 20 to $40 range for a while. >> i think less chance that oil prices actually crash and more they have been capped. face it the frackers pump because they can make money. great roe putting oil well in the ground. as prices rise above the key threshold i'm reading more than $40 a barrel, they will put oil online. when it drops below it, they take it back off just like they have done over the last 12 months. what we're looking at is pronounced and prolonged trading
6:25 am
range in aisle, somewhere between mid 30s and 40s. maria: dagen, this is just a trade then. >> it is just a trade. i love "the wall street journal" story, to the point these new age oil companies haven't gone out of business, not a lot of them yet. they're still there, still struggling to stay in business, with ramp up, oil prices are up 45% since the february low. maria: pretty unbelievable. >> couple of things are temporary supply disruptions happened in iraq and nigeria sent crude price to recent highs. once those problems get cleared up you see a drop back in prices. >> anthony. >> we reported here about three weeks ago about the conversation between the saudis and the russians. then lo and behold three weeks later oil prices are up 40%. maria: that's true. the agreement was a freeze. >> it was. so i get what "the wall street journal" is saying and i understand the supply demand but at the end of the day the saudis are still controlling the short-term interimmediate price, maria.
6:26 am
it got too low for even their taste. that is why we're ratchets up here. maria: okay. coming up, florida senator marco rubio and ohio governor john kasich fighting for their states in tomorrow's winner-take-all primary votes. we'll be in young town, ohio, with our picks for. spring breaks at it again. how a wild party in south beach turned into a full-scale riot.

6:31 am
you've got to go vote good interesting. you could elect to the senate. you've got to go vote on occasion. he set a record, one of the worst records in the last 10 years for no voting in the senate. we don't have to go into bit too big, but you know what is going to happen? we are going to make america great again. >> as for ohio, john kasich predicts he will lead the buckeyes a period kasich says trump will not be our next president with polls suggesting kasich meeting trump in ohio launched this attack. >> in ohio, it is pretty even with kasich. people don't understand what's happening in ohio. in cleveland i look in the business being drained out of ohio. >> senator ted cruz on the stump in north carolina says he is a real alternative to trump.

6:33 am
what is the deal? so i say do me a favor. let's not tell the crowd that we have a big lead. let's tell the crowd -- we could never lie. but let's say it is sort of tied everyone to get out and vote. remember this. in ohio, it is pretty even kasich. people don't understand what's been happening. they've lost a tremendous amount of business. maria: bringing former congressional budget office said douglas holtz weekend. good to see you. >> good morning, maria. maria: let's talk economics at what you think about the plan? tell us the details that instruct you about his tax reform and regulatory ideas. >> well, i'm not very impressed with what he is talked about on the economy. the first and foremost probably will face is getting the federal
6:34 am
budget under control and stopping the unsustainable rise in debt. his statement as he will not make any reforms, those at odds with the budget chair reality. that's not the right direction for the country. pair that with a big tax cut. an enormous cut about 12 tone dollars over 10 years. some of the details are also not the right direction. he's promising to end deferral and go back to taxing income with the rest of the developed world to on those two friends, he's clearly going in the right direction and then he's had this populist anti-immigrant, anti-trade barrier had in the sand approach in international economics. if you look at the facts, those are at odds with the united states needs to do. maria: michael. >> dive into that. one of the more controversial popular planks in trump's platform is the anti-immigration and particularly the anti-trade component.
6:35 am
what do you think the potential economic impact of his positions would be should he become president donald trump? >> if you look at the immigration issue, the key fact is demographically the united states doesn't have enough 80s to grow. the nativeborn population has suffered name fertility. the essence of that is our future population growth all comes from immigration. but that immigration may look like japan. the shrink of the nation and as an economy. the key to our economic future, i understand no one should be in favor of illegal immigration. he's also proposed a possible legal immigration when i think we should be looking at a good tool of economic policy to get a high school labor force in the night is that competes well internationally. what is the point of having a grayscale if they are going to enter markets around the globe? we most untrue no 95% of the
6:36 am
income growth over 75% is likely to be outside the u.s. let's get in most markets. to say i'm not going to engage in trade is to go in the right direction. tree dagen: you know what the support is coming from. people have been at guard by washington, by the establishment, republicans and democrats for 30 some odd years. for years her readers or break him from the it started in the 80s and those jobs went away. what were they told by politicians? job retraining. don't get me skills. now it's coming back to roost. >> i don't disagree with that. there were two different things. one is is this an effective campaign and be elected president? yes, very fact day. everyone spent the morning talking about donald trump. is it a good platform for helping the people that haven't generally been her?
6:37 am
no. there is no commitment for education reform. there's no commitment for defense the infrastructure projects that both sides agree are necessary. there is a lot of headlines. i am looking for the substance. >> just quickly, we aggregated the pay-as-you-go laws after 9/11 and traced back over it there where we exploded in deficit spending. it seems like the economy does better when the government is that 20% of gdp. where do you think you should be and where do you think it's going to matter who the next president is. >> i think that is the key fact. it's where it's going. a-alpha clarke to 2024. whoever is elected president of well over a trillion dollars deficit under current law. 5% of gdp due to the big spending programs. a government with 23% of the economy rested inextricably.
6:38 am
you have to be realistic about social security, medicaid, medicare. the programs cannot continue as they are right now. there are budgetary threat from the economic threat and are not that great for seniors to medicare is not particularly good program. we can do better than that. maria: bottom line, do you expect tax reform in year one of the next resume? certainly on the gop side. >> the only way to get tax reform is for republicans to do it. you need the house, senate and white house to be in republican hands. progressives have no interest in tax reform. maria: in that regard, gop takes the white house tax reform your 12017. >> that could very well have been. it is a tough thing to do. maria: thank you it good to see you. douglas holtz-eakin.
6:39 am
>> listen, probably the only thing i learned in law school it is you have to reform the taxes. one of the first thing i learned is not to be a lawyer. the second thing i learned is you have to refund taxes every 25 to 30 years. where the 30th year since our year since i last checked or foreign producers 75,000 pages of virus code since the last reform. it has to get done. the other thing i was trying to address, bill clinton picked ronald reagan, anybody that looked at this. we are at about 20% government spending relative to the gdp. we've been over that the last five years and that is a big crimp on growth. it becomes an octopus fishing growth of the private economy. >> the problem is i agree with a lot of what doug was saying. but it just isn't telling in this election cycle. dagen: and never sold. you will not win any major election.
6:40 am
>> for allowing my generous immigration or better free trade agreements. none of that is selling a selection. as we look out into 2017 markets, we have to anticipate not friendly and impairment for tax reform and certainly not an iron that are trade. >> marketers to believe tax reform is coming in year one, markets rally ahead of that. that is a game changer for corporate america. dagen: i put money on that. that's what i'm saying. >> the political forces have been what they are makes it unlikely. i absolutely believe you need to set up in the house plus a republican president to get the reforms. it shifts to high bar given to patients the republican party right now. love to see it happen. it's a big surprise to me if it does. maria: spring break gone wild. not that she sang. had to get the police involved as well.

maria: welcome back. north korea searching for a missing submarine. cheryl casone with the details on the headline. cheryl: that's right, maria. the north lost contact with the sub pop in off the east coast. not clear whether the submarine has solved. tensions very high throughout the region. the u.s. is holding massive military exercises with south korea following the nuclear test on a long-range rocket launch.
6:45 am
two people in custody this morning after a maryland police officer was killed in what is being called an unprovoked attack. prince george county police say the shooter opened fire on the first officer he sought outside headquarters yesterday in landover. the suburb of washington d.c. the alleged shooter was wounded is expected to survive. finally, probably with some apparent that their kids to be doing for spring break. it's chaos. police were called in and thousands of partiers like the beaches after sunset and swarmed across the road, ocean drive to be exact. objects were thrown, people started to attack the cops, maria appeared police had to call for backup. there were a lot of rest. finally, order was restored. not for spring break i remember. back to you. maria: i guess we all remember spring break, right? >> i remember parts of it. some of it a little hazy. maria: yeah, i think so.
6:46 am
i make light of that, but it's really not funny. what cheryl just brought us. i want to look at markets this morning. two major meeting cap in this. things are pretty quiet on the major averages this morning. the dow industrial expected to open lower today. we have retail sales numbers coming out tomorrow. consumer prices and a janet galland news conference later this week. any expectations out of the federal reserve? >> the federal reserve to hold fire until their june meeting. this game more interesting is what comes out of the bank of japan. i think mario draghi and the packages he gave last week to corrode bank of japan effectively and not scare markets where they did at their last meeting. maria: how are they going to do that? >> initially there was a big selloff on thursday in the big rally on friday.
6:47 am

8:03 am
divided then they called to know better angels of the individuals to unite this country i hope all candidacy do is that. maria: what about that you are seeing big assault on trump, from republican party you've got people, are like mitt romney, and so called establishment trying to take him down, saying look, we don't think he is going to be able to take out hillary clinton we need a different nominee. >> the way i look at it, anyone of those candidates republican is going to be better than what we have had last 8 years what i am focusing on in the house, and all house members are would i like more policy we've got real problems in this country we've got to get growth happening that is why having a tax plan, what is our health care plan instead of can have snust repealing object compare what are he we replacing it with, poverty, upward mobility too many people especially angry middle class lack of growth 8 years lookatrist attacks national policy so is week for world to be safe
8:04 am
america needs to be strong the issues we are bringing forward, and i hope, who ever becomes the nominee can grab those policies and make america strong. >> i am glad you mentioned this because you have a solid agenda right now, and gop he voters in particular want to know if they are a not getting rolled over you are going to complement that solid agenda when you talk with poverty i am happy you brought this up because this is one of the biggest issues the country phases right now but the approach that is different on the two sides. >> yeah. >> what is the right approach. >> well the right approach should be from you start from a fundamental basis, where you were born doesn't mean that is where your lot in life ends up, that america, gives you an opportunity to rise to different place a different opportunity. for too long we have had democratic approach to war on poverty locked people into poverty, so looking from a tax basis, from overall review of the movements what government had instead of forcing to keep you down shackling keeps you back -- unshackling.
8:05 am
>> we are walking through these a complete agenda of about you go into the convention we have been working on all year so america can see the difference, between a you future, and one that is just talking about the past. >> part of that is taxi he reform. >> tax reform you've got to have growth we have had less than 2% or less last eight years middle class earning less more frustrated growth solves so many problems national security policy health care look how much money even though your gasoline price is lower where is money going to higher premium doesn't have to be the case we could provide a health care system that you are in power of instead government premiums go down looking from standpoint of all these powers of the presidents from executive actions, pull that back article one, what is the power of the house, agencies have become too big they legislate too power. >> part in terms of the right approach is tax reform, is
8:06 am
reform for health care, and also rolling back certain regulations, that has been small business and hurting businesses ability to create jobs. >> when i was 19 i created first business three lessons. >> kevin's deli. >> i was first to work last to leave last to be paid very rewarding, small business creates more jobs, than any other place, and we are at our lowest point, of small businesses being created in the last 17 years, because of regulation, if people walk across america, and listen to small businesses they will tell you regulation is one of the greatest hardships of being able to enter business. >> are we hearing this from the candidates, i have read a couple of your comments about donald trump you basically said look i could work with him i would work with any of these so what policies are you hearing and from whom touching exactly what you are is a i go. >> number one thing with i am hearing is government and agencies are creating regulations they can't start small business if you can't have you are not having
8:07 am
growth, so the income is lower they i think the tuptsdz are not there, then they every day they turn on tv, and watching, america empower iran or that russia is stepping someplace else in expanding territory, chooirn -- the world unsafe wondering if allies trust us because looks like enemies do not fear us, so, the world to be safer america needs is to be stronger. >> a great point lemon ask you about iran, and where we are there because we know that they have already violated the agreement, last week we are talking about these missiles that they were launching, what is the answer do you want sanctions? >> yes. >> implemented again? against irsnoon the first i never wanted should have never been in agreement it should have been a treaty never would have been ratified like jimmy call your attentioner -- the president said he would hol iran accountable if they broke the treaty especially with u.n. others there should be
8:08 am
sanctions we have a bill in the house, from our chairman a bipartisan that will be coming to floor we should put sanctions upon because they are breaking the agreement of what was written. maria: yeah he said that, by the way, the president many times. >> he promised. >> -- many times. >> american people he promised that to the world promised to that our allies. maria: so far -- we're not seeing any pushback, how important is tomorrow? >> when you look. maria: at states having primaries particularly the winner takes all in florida, and ohio what is your take is this going to be it we are going to know after tomorrow. >> i trust the voters, i think what is more important, is the policy. because okay. we are going to have elections going to keep going if we don't have elections about ideas we're not going to change the country that is why what house is doing in my view is most important thing inident debates are hard to watch, i want to talk about the ideas and challenges for america, so
8:09 am
when this election is decided, it is decided about the path we want to take, and the future we want to change, and then we can move forward. >> what was your thought about mitt romney coming out the way he did against trump. >> well, everybody has gone a -- ability to come out with whatever place they stand, that is america, we believe in that view but i rather people talk policies, let's talk about tax policy for the growth talk about what is your request health care answer, what is the national defense going to be more importantly, how are we going to answer and have middle class actually grow in america have more small businesses. maria: now this new worry about republicans possibly loving senate how serious. >> the senate has been competitive, think about this, there is more senate republican senators up elected 2010 a great year nonpresidential year wind at your back, that is always a competitive one so if we are talking about policy, and things that we've achieved, of i don't think would be that worried about the senate being reelected that is why i think,
8:10 am
what we work together we work with the senate, and the house together, on retreat laying out this agenda. maria: a great point, but for example, does a donald trump in the white house help you with those particular races. >> look, i don't know when one is going to help i will tell you this whoever the republican nominee is going to be better than last eight years. >> one thing focusing on while you have been traveling throughout california, i know you have been from silicon valley to all over the state, is start-up activity, is start-up activity, as strong as it was today? then let's call it five years ago. >> because start-ups i think things slowed down quite a bit. >> things have slowed down, you had dodd-frank, but innovation is so important in america, it keeps us ahead of everywhere else i will tell you i am from california, i don't represent silicon valley but i go there often i was just in a company, looking adacity gives you education
8:11 am
you know what their education a guarantee if you don't have a job you get your money back, can you manuallyiimagine if we t to colleges in 2010 uber had three cars worth more than 60 billion dollars we need this brought to government could you imagine in 1930s va was created, they took your disability by pencil we got air-conditioning by a fan, and our news by radio. today we get our news by a phone get central air still writing down disability claims what if we brought he noeflgs more efficient effective accountable. >> why you are focused only rolling back particularly as relates to small biggest, is it surprise you that this is not conversation happening on democratic side you look at bernie sanders, i -- the s&l this weekend, i am like everybody follows me all this money and i have -- grabbed plans no idea how to pay for any of this.

8:31 am
waiting on two central bankers this week. the bank of japan tomorrow and the bank reserve and we're not expecting much out of the meetings. the broader averages, dow jones industrials down 20 points off the worst levels of the morning. one major story we're following and a stock to watch today, starwood hotels. the company received an unsolicited takeover bid from a group of chinese companies, complicating the merger already in place with marriott. it looks like china wants more ownership of the u.s. we'll talk about it. and violence at presidential frontrunner donald trump's rallies, headed into super tuesday 2.0. watch. >> look at that person, that foolish personment -- person. all right, get him out of here, get him out! send him back to bernie's.
8:32 am
if i have to do it myself, i know it's not -- >> joining us now is the blackspear, kevin jackson, thanks for weighing in here, good to see you. >> my pleasure. >> what's your reaction today, over the weekend, these protesters disrupting trump rallies? >> well, a deep step back for democracy for sure. you know, donald trump having his first amendment rights curtailed is probably the most glaring part of this whole thing. even if you don't like what somebody says, you need to let him be able to speak it. obviously, it's orchestrated and i think if trump handles the right way he'll handle it pretty well, but i think it speaks to sort of the nature of liberalism in america, unfortunately, where people
8:33 am
decide that it's a one-sided conversation, they don't want to hear the other side of that conversation. trump, they claim, said a lot of incendiary things, but the fact of the matter is he speaks for millions in america. maria: you think he's handling that okay right now? that's the debate whether or not thinks reaction to this or his rallies in general, are inciting this kind of violence. >> well, it's ridiculous to say that he's inciting it. we're living in a time right now where barack obama could have easily quelled a lot of this. they say it's based on racial text, but it's really based on political tension and the fact is, in america right now, the intolerant left don't want to hear the other side of the argument. donald trump's talking about things like immigration and the fact of matter is, there are millions of americans who believe we should be protecting our borders and quite frankly, it's a drain on the company of mexico to allow their most precious resource to come over to america because there is no opportunity there. america puts a the lo of
8:34 am
dollars into the mexican economy and they should be able to have the people there to, you know, to work that economy. the other side of it is around the muslims and donald trump didn't say anything that a lot of americans don't think, which is we should have a better policy that allow us to vet these people correctly so that we aren't putting american citizens at risk. and those are considered incendiary comments when it's just common sense. so, as far as inciting this, it's not trump that's inciting it, it's the left that's inciting it and i said earlier on another program, maria, that the way you turn a billionaire businessman, a successful businessman into a racist and xenophobe is to put an r behind his name and ben carson uncle tom put an r, and become a republican. maria: well said. dagen. dagen: what's going on with the

democratic candidates, they should be calling out people and saying don't disrupt these events. and they're not doing that because they are quietly hoping, and this is my idea, they're quietly hoping that these protesters make donald trump look bad. >> sure. dagen: that's why hillary clinton and bernie sanders won't tell their supporters, don't disrupt these events. if they think they could win they should stand on their own merits, but they're encouraging these people to go to these trump rallies. >> absolutely. look, there's no reason why you would disrupt the system and in fact, it's a slippery slope because the intimidation isn't going to stop there. the intimidation will probably bleed into the polls. it's politicized and the left is good. you take donald trump the star of the apprentice and put the r
8:36 am
behind his name and suddenly the democrats are trying it demonize him. donald trump has been called a lot of things, but to my knowledge hasn't been a racist up until now. and really, it's a statement more how politics devolved in this country where people are not allowed to say what they want to say and all of it, honestly, maria, is part of the politically correctness, if you don't agree with what the left has to say, then you need to be shut down. peaceful protests, no problem. but the disruptive protests like this, you never see this come from the other side. you don't see the tea party, you don't see anybody that has a conservative banner disrupting-- you may speak out at a rally, but you certainly won't disrupt a rally of hillary clinton or bernie sanders, even though most certainly conservative americans think these guys, i like to call them want crazy. if they have something to say and people want to hear it, let
8:37 am
them hear it. maria: everything that kevin is bringing up, anthony, is what is empowering trump follow,by the way. >> i have a question related to tactic and strategy. the left play book is to disrupt the protests and probably someone getting hurt there and in general, the american, the independent says, whoa, this is too violent for me, i'll vote for the democrat and your response to that is what? and what should donald trump do in response to that to combat it? >> i don't think they're going to vote for the democrat. i think if there's any shift you'll see them shift over towards one of the other candidates, but i think a lot of people feel as if they do realize on the right that this is not something that's occurring spontaneously, it's an orchestrated thing and these people are targeting donald trump in his events and it's kind of like in football where the second guy gets the penalty even though the first guy slapped him. so that's the way this is beginning to look, but i don't think it's going to play very well with conservatives. quite frankly, i think a lot of
8:38 am
the left even see that these types of tactics are not working. you can't, no matter what you think about donald trump and his rhetoric, as you put it, there's no reason to disrupt him. now, as far as the tax particulars -- tactics and saying fight back, believe it or not, there are overwhelming number in america who say the left have been bullying us and pushing us around with the political correctness, the tippingpoint, is it going to tip in trump's favor or not. i think in this case it's going to tip in his favor. maria: it sounds like you think that donald trump can win the election? >> it's funny, maria, if i make a comment i'm going to get people from the other side, the cruz people will be mad at me. maria: haters on both sides. >> exactly. look, in this particular case, you know, i will tell you trump would not be my first pick, i'm not endorsing anybody else, but i will vote for him if he's the person, but what i will say is
8:39 am
a lot of people are beginning to see the tactics that are being used and how the left is trying to paint donald trump in a particular way and i think that that's what's going to backfire most. maria: you're right. kevin, good to see you, sir, thank you so much. >> you, too. maria: kevin jackson there. it's looking more like a two-man race in ohio where governor john kasich is facing off against donald trump. jeff flock live on the ground with a preview of the big event. back in a minute. there's a lot of places you never want to see "$7.95."

>> it's basically a two-man race in ohio where governor john kasich is facing off against donald trump in the winner take all buckeye state. jeff flock in youngstown. good morning. >> good morning to you, maria.
8:43 am
on the campaign bus doing a round robin with stations across ohio and as well as a few others. important to win the state. he says he will drop out if he doesn't. donald trump looking for the knockout punch here, have a big rally tonight in youngstown. of course, his rally in chicago continues to be a big focus of the talk. governor kasich over the weekend saying donald trump has created a toxic environment in which these sorts of scenes that play out like they did in chicago on friday are wont to take place. just for a note, i was at the rally and donald trump keeps saying we were going to have 25,000 people there. important to note he had booked a 10,000 seat venue, not sure how he was going to get 25,000 people there, there you go. also in terms of the organization of that protest, certainly, some people were there, planning to be there, but as i said, i was there, thousands perhaps outside and a lot of folks, a diverse crowd, young, old, black, white, i even talked to a number of
8:44 am
republican anti-trump protesters in the cloud who says he doesn't speak for their party. there you go. a little perspective, maria. maria: thank you, jeff. we need that this morning. jeff flock on the ground in ohio. the war on coal is escalating. democratic frontrunner hillary clinton last night at the ohio town hall said that her policies will have huge implications for the already struggling industry. had listen to this. >> i'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. because we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. maria: right now, joining us, murray energy founder ceo and president, bob murray. good to see you. that wasn't a surprise to you, right? she's going to be putting your industry out of business. >> that is correct, and good morning, maria. to not way to run for president to tell folks and citizens that you're going to destroy their jobs and family livelihoods,
8:45 am
but more importantly, i'm an expert on electricity, i'm an expert on energy. she is not. and what she is advocating is a destruction of the most reliable electric power grid that the world has ever seen. electricity, maria, is a staple low cost reliable electricity is absolutely needed for anyone on fixed income or anyone that produces a product for the global marketplace. statements like that, by hillary clinton, clearly indicate to me that this woman is to be very afraid of. she has no idea what she is saying on this particular subject and she frightens me very much, maria. maria: well, i mean, we've already seen the beginnings of this, right? president obama was very clear on this issue as well. they don't like coal, they want renewable energy. how many jobs would you say have been cut and companies
8:46 am
gone bankrupt in your industry since this campaign has begun? >> there are 49 coal companies, in bankruptcy, 2000 active miners before barack obama, today we have 60,000. the wind and solar power that she advocates is 22 cents a kilowatt hour with a 4 cent kilowatt subsidy from the taxpayer. coal fired electricity is only 4 cents a kilowatt hour and that's why i would say be frightened of hillary clinton which will drive the rates out of site and destroy the reliability of our power grid. >> you talk about the reliability of the power grid. how vulnerable are the power grids with the reduction in coal that we've seen. can solar and wind come up in
8:47 am
the summer? >> no, in fact, every power grid at the country say they're at minimum levels right now, very close, if we got heavy summer loads or heavy winter loads there could be brownouts and blackouts in power generation. solar power only works if the sun shines. wind power only works if the wind blows. it's not reliable source of power. you need gas, you need nuclear, you need coal to cover these periods where you can't depend on wind and solar and remember, it's 22 cents a kilowatt hour with subsidy from the taxpayer. >> don't we have enough natural gas to fill that in? >> no, we don't have enough natural gas. natural gas is limited by the size of the pipeline. it's a gas inside, carbon coal is a solid hydrocarbon and it's there when the loads go up and down every day and around the seasons. natural gas will not fill the bill.
8:48 am
there has to be at least 30%. coal-fired electricity in this country or else people are going to be cold in the dark. maria: thank you. great to see you jon hilsenrath. we'll hear from you after we hear from the federal reserve. >> looking forward to. maria: a scary moment in the air after a bird strikes an egyptian air flight. and we're breaking out the irons. pro golfer lexi thompson on success early in life, plus her golf partner donald trump. plus, floor director nat taking on a new role. ♪
