6:04 am
he does it the better, the news media will hound him unless every cents has been spent. in any charitiable enterprise, they don't actually give it n. this case donald trump is better off if he has to write a personal check to make up the difference and prove $6 million went out the door, it's over. maria: are you surprised that it's taking this long to actually see the details of this, this is the kind of thing that people will say, aha, where's the money? jon: people want to see the tax returns. maria: that's right. >> there's nothing in there that people understand. if people understood they would do their own returns. as a person that has been in politics, the dumbest thing i ever did was to release 20 income tax returns
6:05 am
maria: why? >> your enemy wills nit-pick them and defend some line that they don't understand, your accountant doesn't understand it. look, the financial disclosure that you have to give as a candidate is far more detailed, far more introducive -- intrsuttive than a tax return. it would be complicated and for what purpose? maria: let's not forget, he's getting audited. that's his excuse. >> donald trump is the only guy that can tell them to put it where the sun don't shine. i think he should have just said, my tax returns are not something that i'm required to do, i've given you all the financial disclosure.
6:06 am
dagen: you're exactly right, he's got to button it up and just move on. >> that's right. dagen: he has to be close to 6 million maria: do you think that happens today? does this go away? dagen: i love the scrut >> speaker1: of this, the fact of the matter is even the reporters that have been on the story, there has been money and money going to veterans charities, we know that. we know it's in the millions of dollars. we know that. but the lack of coverage of the clinton foundation and the -- jon: the wall street journal has been all over the clibt open foundation. maria: it's unbelievable when we see the washington post, we are going to put 20 reporters on donald trump and make sure to get the detail and nothing about the obvious interest of clinton foundation. >> difference between money that
6:07 am
donald trump is raise to go give veterans that he's not personally getting. the hundreds of mlgs of dollars of the clinton foundation is getting and they're getting a lot of that. it's just -- it's a complete double standard. it's why donald trump is doing so well. maria: let's talk about bernie sanders for a moment. there was a rally in oakland, california yesterday, it got rough, force it had secret service to jump in and protect bernie sanders, do you think these large rallies pose a security risk? watch how they have to cover bernie sanders. >> it's unfortunate that people don't understand of going to an event. we are in a time of such chaotic disruption in our country that i think we are going to see more of this. it is not unprecedented, you know, i'm old enough to remember the 60's, unfortunately, i'm that old and i remember in 68 the convention in chicago and not just that convention but every political event was almost
6:08 am
if not awry yacht a near riot. so this isn't knew. it's just something that a lot of americans haven't seen yet and i hope we don't see it forever. maria: the conventions are going to be something to watch. jon: on both sides. trump is going to get protests. maria: maybe from bernie sanders sanders. jon: exactly. >> the security is ridiculously tight and tampa was almost at the top, you felt like you were an inmate getting in and an inmate getting out and it was -- jon: it's going to be outside on the streets. dagen: how well they can handle it. cities are getting $50 million each because it's a national security event. they're getting that from the federal government. so that helps put -- >> the same federal government running tsa, i feel better already.
6:09 am
rig rig dagen: i think that -- maria: did it get better this weekend? dagen: the reason that the line formed is because when nessenger came that the security that was in place was lacking because they were letting too many people through precheck. ultimately it's about keeping the skies safe and keeping the flyers safe. maria: sure. dagen: i think that they've gotten a lot of heat for something that they want to fix. maria: former state inspector general says hillary clinton is wrong to claim her private e-mail was like her predecessors, listen to this, i want to get your reaction. >> secretary rice did not have a personal server. i would have been stunned had i been asked to to send an e-mail
6:10 am
to her, i would have declined to do so on security grounds and if she had sent one to me, i probably would have started an investigation. maria: the truth is when the clinton came out after the state reported, everybody had many -- secretaries had the same situation because nobody had a server and that's basically what you're hearing. >> if hillary clinton would be a magazine character, what me, she never seems to want to follow the same rules everybody has to follow but it's a common pattern and i think it is -- it's when you have inspector general that was not a republican appointee, not from the other side, not part of the loyal opposition, he's a straight-up guy and realizes this was absolutely over the top and inappropriate. maria: yeah. well, powell and rice having gmail is not the same thing. jop jon this --
6:11 am
jon: the question is does this go away if there's no indictment? >> legally it may go away, politically it will not go away. and so her bigger consequence is the political consequence. hillary has one goal this year, get elected president. this complicated her election. raises the doubt of her integrity. dagen: expect leaks which are just as damaging. leaks from people who worked on the investigation and people may be even quitting their job. maria: if that's the kind of conversation going on at the fbi, it will come out. dagen: yeah. maria: short break. tomming out roads turning into rivers, racing against the clock in texas. latest on the deadly storms this morning. latin america's largest airline ending service at the country. last day of trading for may, investors sell and go away, back in a minute

7:03 am
if the gop can't control their own they are not a party. he went on to say the republican party has to be smart and strong if it wants to win in november. can't allow lightweights to set up base oiler and the candidate. there are many questions that follow here. among them, who might access the forward. republican senator ben says that they said a third-party candidate would be preferable to trump, but he hasn't gone any further. mark cuban said he was approached about the possibility, but he declined to admit from a headstock deciphers to recruit a third-party candidate. perhaps even more importantly at the ballot deadlines. for example. for example the date has 30 passed in texas for an independent to get on the ballot in november. maria: but his story. thanks so much. blake burman with the latest. former reagan-bush national campaign director, ed rollins. good to see you build will
7:04 am
appear but is he thinking? >> i can tell you what he's thinking. but the reality to it. even if they had $109, it would make difference. we have our fields. sanders will continue to fight hillary to the convention. romney is our nominee. not romney. trump is our nominee. and republicans are coming around. maria: romney has called back. >> is already heard himself an obvious way than it is a very fine man. talking about it too long and not supporting the candidate damaged and somewhat. maria: does this damage the republican party question >> is a good friend of my is not relative. think it hurts the party. hers is people acting like the japanese shoulders sitting in
7:05 am
case 30 years after the war. they just didn't know it was over. two people. hillary, donald trump. if you're a republican, there's no way you can say hillary is okay. what is wrong with people? i don't get this. i don't know what he's thinking and who he thinks he can roll out, but it would be a disaster for whoever thought that would be a great idea. >> an independent can't come out and win this thing. they've already missed some of the states. in an independent come out and win enough votes to make it that the charter for trump to win? >> if it's a serious candidate. it could have an impact are worried about bernie sanders of gaza democrat. i think he likes this game. it is not very true that there is no reason for him to get to the back of the lobby. my sense is he in his people may decide they want to make a run. dagen: any potentially wind up on the debate stage. if he makes a third-party run,
7:06 am
would he be standing up there with hillary? >> 15% of the threshold they use for an independent candidate. you may disagree, but i think he has a potential movement in the future. these young people are not going to rollover and be part of the democrat hillary team. >> would he take as many trump was that they were from hillary? >> no. but there's too few young people very attend people very attentive though they haven't been treated fairly. they haven't been part of the establishment. maybe antiestablishment in the republican and we got the antiestablishment candidate in most of those people have a solid bond. >> but they didn't do the democratic side here they are still battling hillary is the establishment player. >> california is a dead even race today. the public policy polling that came out last week i sanders is two points behind.
7:07 am
she had to basically go up there yesterday. it's a tired story. they are proportional to matter what happens it will come out with as many delegates. >> is this like 1980 worried things jimmy carter lost five of the last eight contests with kennedy. he won the nomination. so a good indicator of how weak he was. >> 27% of the voters and not raise voted for ronald reagan. my sense will be democrats will vote basically for trump this time. i think that's going to be key. maria: the primary -- >> we should point out california and new jersey. besides looking ahead to next week. bernie sanders is campaigning heavily. you just said that hillary asserted doubling down in california as well. sanders says he is most focused on defeating donald trump. listen to this.
7:08 am
>> that may be worried about donald trump. this big raise, macho guy, most important responsibility is to make certain the democratic party has the strongest candidate possible to defeat donald trump and make sure he does not become president, which would be a disaster. maria: is that a tone that is changing? >> at least in public opinion polls he's a much stronger candidate. that won't happen if it ends up being one-on-one and people really get to see what his issues are. he's the most popular of the three still in the game. his poll numbers are strong, but obviously has the establishment from the beginning starting to teeter. i think he could win in california. >> that's gigantic hit the biggest state in the country if he comes out of that as the
7:09 am
winner, there will be another couple polls. the last poll that came out as a two-point difference. >> howard hillary responded she loses? and then she basically argued it doesn't matter. democrats pick proportionally. it's not a winner take all. >> i don't think so. the problem with that organization this is a weak candidate and she just can't get stronger. i think she was a much sharper candidate. the senate stuff last week, judicial stuff. she's got a pair of summer her. >> given all of that and not donald trump will have, is it worth revisiting. >> audi weaves a story?
7:10 am
if his strong decision-maker. they go back to the days in arkansas. some of those issues are complicated. you don't try and make that case, but it's just the fact any time the clintons are there, and the air force one is always money, money summer that's not proper and legal. it's a real vulnerability. i would much rather go after the click foundation mistakes he made the secretary of state. >> that's not an episode. it's a series. it goes back to the 70s and 80s. it's a narrative that is the point i totally agree but. >> but if the investigation is not finished until after the election, how does that -- >> the clayton cash book and the movie coming out is just enough about this very clear, the
7:11 am
things that she did. you'll never get it all done in time for the election. there is enough to show the pattern of worship, she wouldn't do this when they became secretary of state and a big, big money given their word to get something special. you can create the pattern. maria: ed rollins, great to see you. by comments from one former top obama official about edward snowden may surprise you. the former beatles paul mccartney sing about britain's o2 exit the eurozone. next. we asked a group of young people when they thought they should start saving for retirement. then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving
7:12 am
and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges.

7:16 am
the googles of the world are not charging for advertising and not having advertising in the search. hadn't they make money? >> that's the whole business model. i don't get a sense that the ad documents having that big of an impact. >> 90% increase year-over-year. >> look at google's numbers. maria: you're talking about 90% of emerging markets. that is the growth story for the googles of the world. you wonder if that's going to impact the way you monetize business. where do you think? >> i think it's going to become an increasing problem and they will be working on ways the ad can be bought. they will fight back against technology. quite frankly the real talent is these giant companies, like google would be smaller companies very often. >> smart people will come up with the way in which the ads won't be so intrusive. if i have to watch it or to
7:17 am
second ad to see a 102nd video, i'm not going to do it. maybe at some point you'll have fewer ads with better quality that people will pay attention to. dagen: has said this before. the way back into grant delivers advertising is genius because it is so beautifully targeted, unlike twitters advertising that it has to be said he must immigration that appeals to your likes and dislikes. their data comprehension is just phenomenal. maria: so far they have blockers are getting around it. coming up next, should they just let it be? britain so to o2 with the eurozone. x-men taking top spot over the holiday weekend. it was the bomb of another film everybody's talking about. keep it right here on fox business network when we

7:22 am
all eyes on saudi arabia minister appointed this month. jon hilsenrath is that this is funny. not expected to move from the cartel, to some people say it does highlight how opec has lost important. >> there's less pressure right now because oil prices have risen and ironically the country taking pressure off of opec is the united states because they cut production cut back in nigeria and canada and narrowed our little bit less pressure now that new oil minister in saudi arabia can ease into his new job. maria: oil below $50 a barrel is a big story, the fact they've been moving up the last couple months or weeks. and then it got this june meeting. he said those jobs numbers critical because this right before the june meeting. >> did not put too much weight on any one reporter. they will put a lot of weight on this report because they told the markets they might move in june.
7:23 am
they have to see a strong number in this next report from the employment if they will raise interest rates. what's important here talking about oil prices, markets are lining up in favors. talking about china sought prices going up. oil prices are in a position where they have the potential to move enabled for live off the market the way it did earlier this year. transfer what about when supply disruptions get taken care of. the supply disruptions right now are the highest they've been intended as a 3..5 million barrels offline because of problems in nigeria and canada and libya. that could come back. >> not only that, but the drillers in the u.s. could start traveling again. this is why i don't think we'll see oil prices go up or down. they stay in this range we've seen. maybe a little bit lower because
7:24 am
supply can come back. it looks like a big supply demand imbalance that dominated the market last year is starting to get under control. maria: just to be clear, do you expect the fed to raise interest rates at the june meeting? >> they either moved or the more likely scenario is they say they will move to july said that combine the markets expect nations to make sure there's no surprises. maria: something is happening. jon: it's an important meeting. they've made that very clear. if the jobs numbers are very soft, they very soft, they will move forward tentatively. maria: isn't it extraordinary? the u.k., great britain voting on leaving the heroes of. the referendum happens june june 23rd. beatles legend paul mccartney

played newspaper everyone i talk to post from one extreme to another. is good. i haven't decided. >> it doesn't look like it is. this is another factor the fed has to think about. the vote happens after the fed meeting. there is some worry that there could be disruptions. right now it doesn't look like it's going to happen. maria: what do you think? dagen: the more we talk about the federal reserve, i can see the wheels turning because they know you really don't particularly care for the federal reserve. again, how it manipulates the economy. and that that's just it. a manipulative force in the economy not necessarily good for working-class people. the people who stand on their feet all day is on concrete floors are not benefited by policies do affect people at the top. that said bernie sanders is doing well, donald trump is doing well. it is frustrating to a lot of americans. jon: it's manipulating, but can
7:26 am
also be extremely damaging. one of the things economists value is the fed really messed up during the great depression and that's why we had 20% off unemployment. we might not like its presence, but it's important that it does a good job, which is why everyone is paying so much attention to what they do next. >> in some ways it will be helpful to people out there, the retirees who have cds, whose investment in him has been in the basement. thank you very much. establish me from going somewhere. maria: i know where you're going. >> i'm not a potty mouth. it's frustrating because a lot of people have just been hit hard by interest rates be in love. it is wonderful for people who are borrowing. it's great in many businesses, but for other people it's been her fault. i want to weigh in just on this european union.
7:27 am
here is the thing i see. a global movement towards nationalism. you see more and more countries to adopt is happening in america. donald trump is winning because he's a nationalist. he has run on not the republican platform, but the nationalist platform. they are tired of seeing their culture, their country, patriotism, boundaries totally obliterated. they don't know who they are anymore and they went again to be restored to being who they are, what they've come to. >> if they leave the eurozone, design of an impact on the rest of the world? >> absolutely. to see other countries with an intent. >> should we be worried about nationalist movements? is this a factor that drove us into world war ii? >> some people say its protection. >> it could be both. they are trying to protect their
7:28 am
way of life. this is what i think a lot of people living in the bubbles of the financial community don't understand. people feel that their way of life is being threatened and that is what they are resisting. they are rebelling. it's not just a resistance. if the november ballot in. if the people don't understand it, they'll get run over by a sooner or later. maria: with the president last week from japan said world leaders are vital, americans don't care. they want to battle them. we will take a short break its telecom pirate that x-men movie power into the top. see which film failed to meet expectations. u.s. attorney general eric holder changing his tune on controversial surveillance techniques. he now says edwards noted that a public service. the outraged max. -- the outraged max. the heirloom tomato.

7:34 am
here. >> i want to point out obviously, the veterans have gotten much more money and attention, and energy from donald trump than anybody else. but why hasn't he announced already what specific charities that money went to? >> well, i know maria he actually did, early on, when we first had this, this event and you will know this event was put together, in about 24 hours, and we did release 22 charities that we knew for sure had been vetted we are going to be receiving those funds and those charities did receive funds. what media doesn't know is that there were several other charities are had applied for some of these funds we announced months ago sometimes can take up to 6 weeks to 6 months to properly vet charities get funds dispersed that is what mr. trump is going to announce today. >> how much money has been allocated of 6 million. >> up to 6 million absolutely this is something. >> have how much has been --
7:35 am
already has some money allocated it has about half of it. >> i think all now allocated, and that is what mr. trump is going to be announcing today, a few months ago, media was reporting about -- 3 or 4 million they didn't know about other charities, that had been applying, for this for this money that was being vetted and money being disappearsed this is one issue that is really a driving force with mr. trump as a person, as well as a candidate, along the campaign trail when you have all these veterans and families coming up to mr. trump, this is one of the two times that i have seen mr. trump get choked up, with meeting some families veterans, and those families lost the loved ones to illegal immigrant crime two things fueling mr. trump's emotionally to get out there understand and campaign help make america great again. maria: dagen. dagen: i just wanting to
7:36 am
click ask the six million dollars how much is his own donation because i think he was going to a million dollars he was going to give of his money or has already. >> yes dagen you will notice the reports leading up to last 24 hours, a lot of the media was saying that mr. trump had not given this one million dollars, but once he made the announcement, that he was going to hold a press conference about the charitable donations everyone now reporting that mr. trump gave one million dollars this is another example of the bias media that is out there trying to hurt mr. trump's candidates we marry nothing about clinic foundation 5 million dollars supposed to go to haiti we don't know where the money has gone about hillary clinton 500,000 dollar in moscow bill clinton connection to uranium - don't hear about transparency for some reason everyone is focused on charity event mr. trump himself put up, and in light of the debate, put
7:37 am
his money in now being forced to give every detail about it, you know what it does show media bias. maria: unbelievable actually, that is true. >> truf >>. >> i was at event in iowa, for some controversies, amazing, support donald trump has from veterans, is nothing less than palpable you can sense it, right lanes you saw at that event, i think they see in him somebody who is not going to forget them somebody who will just take names and kick rear ends at va make that organization serve veterans there is no doubt in my mind he has a really strong support for that. >> i remember that night you were on fox debate -- to do obviously the veterans you left debate went. >> i was in first debate i had nothing to do later i didn't make main stage i said heck lets support veterans was proud i did happy to stand with him to do that.
7:38 am
>> very proud to have you there it was amazing to your point, you can feel it, it is not even just veterans that is what most people don't understand in media or washington, d.c., but people get it, and i tell everyone if you really want to know what is behind donald trump campaign just go to a trump rally, it will be something you have never experienced, an amazing opportunity to see all of the types of people that are supporting mr. trump republicans democrats, there is no race or gender bias at rallies there is a lot of love and support for america. >> let me swift gears ask about washington port reporter suggesting donald trump should consider his daughter as vice president what do you think? >> i think a lot of people would love to see ivanka on the ticket mr. trump stated he does want someone with political experience but at the end of the day we all know, mr. trump will be the one making that decision, i think ivanka would be a phenomenal choice movieing
7:39 am
woim in fact all children amazing very good advocates for mr. trump the man. >> looking beyond the family wsh let's talk about the timetable when do you expect him making a decision on this front. >> we do expect this decision to be made at the convention. corey lewandowski mentioned that is short end i think exciting most people are stuck in old political paradigm you have to pick one can carry a state or certain race or vendor mr. trump wants to pick the right person for the job. someone that believing in his vision to help make america great again i think announcement one that we will all be waiting for. >> how do you define the right the right person? >> well mr. trump will be defining that right person, comfortable with, someone that wants to support his values vision. >> political experiencing. >> let me ask you governor huckabee have you discussed with donald trump having a role in his government.
7:40 am
>> i talked to some of the people but not about some specific role one of the things i can tell you in politics people who talk don't know and people who know don't talk if somebody tells you they know everything going on inside the organization start spilling it they don't know what they are talking about if not talking they probably know more than they let on to be. >> marco rubio sounding very -- >> -- marco rubio very kind about. >> apologized, for the comment about hand. >> showed a lot of class. >> yeah, he said he was going to -- support him. >> absolutely, yeah. >> is marco rubio in the running? >> well i think everyone mr. trump already said that that has run was up for consideration, he didn't want the leave anybody out for any reason, i think that goes to show another important aspect of mr. trump's leadership not going to look at one because he was a competitor he wants

did that, he is not right nothing he did is right, but the service i don't even want to use the word service it was not a service. >> -- calling it a service -- >> not a service, okay. i will grant you that -- it was not a service but it sparked an important role in conversation congress needs to have will limitations of government scrutiny. >> i agree important to have that debate americans have a role making those decisions however i think you have to completely disconnect from what edward snowden did what he did was wrong, every way you can look at it. maria: all right we leave it there, thank you. for your insights. >> strong words. >> yes, coming up next hour how beyoncé is cashing in only police threatening to boycott her concerts, tonight keep it right here.

8:08 am
-- he is coming with explanation and a lot of things, that he will will -- ban muslims from war countries, we understand and safety is number one for us as well. >> i think it is very refreshing to hear you say very honestly realistically even some things maybe donald trump said what he is talking about is protecting the american muslims as much as anybody else, it is i think, an incredibly important perspective, that you have brought you are doing the country, and even muslim community terrific service as american, i am not afraid of muslims in this country, overall, many friends doctors others terrific, and they are not they are not frightening to me i think that when you speak out, you are providing an important roll for the muslim community. >> thank you so much, as a matter of fact i have said several times that radical islam not only threat to the western civilization it is a threat to itself, that is not
8:09 am
islam is be is first candidate donald trump who has brought up the subject he is willing to understand why they are haters most of us we muslim americans understand that we appreciate it. >> let me ask both experts to weigh in on this how do you feel about donald trump and gop immigration policy right now is there modification you would like to see in his rhetoric or policy in the platform how would you like to see that evolve what would bre ideal. >> to me i believe what i know currently we have no system in effect for example fugitives from syria no system to vet them see what object to come into this country we have a system where they come hardly can -- we need a million changes in immigration for the safety of america i am all for that to be honest with you he has said a war against mexican border people have taken wrongly but there is an issue

8:11 am
are in best position to solve all our national security problems we hope to look forward we hope we can solve all of them together be the face of america. >> dagen. dagen: but what do you say who do you want let me ask you this way it was to what michael was referencing, what can donald trump say to the muslim community you think that could get them to vote for him? >> well -- he needs to apologize for comments because that created a backlash to our community a lot of things occurred he needs to reach out support muslim americans we want him to be our president we want to see how donald trump will be representing all americans, make america great for everyone. >> what do you want him to apologize specifically about? >> ban muslims about
8:12 am
temperature important are a hero. >> i don't think that ban will get enacted i this i what we need to do is focus on national security, and we need to vet every person comes in regardless of refugeeligion i w to see doctor doctor more supportive muslim american community would i love to host him at mosque i hope he reaches out to muslims seven million muslim american voters would love to see donald trump change rhetoric reach out to our community. >> you are a muslim american you are going to vote for donald trump? >> i will support the republican nominee. >> you, too? >> yes, of course, i have a muslim american muslim for trump i am not only going to work for him i am asking another muslims to work for him, and, you know, again, just make a correction, a little bit i don't want him to apologize, but i he already has explained several times, and some of our media liberal
8:13 am
especially is not telling us the voters. he said he will ban and there will be exceptions, there will be first of all, the muslims ban will be from the -- where threat is coming some other exceptions, so basically the media has to -- apology that is what not correct -- of donald trump he hasn't done that, i don't want him to be apologetic on this one he brought this issue on forefront then he came up with this idea it was -- coming california incident we don't want to have incidents here in u.s., because we are living under fear living under fear we don't want it we are american we are part of this fabric love this country god bless america. >> for sure a great point thank you to both of you, for that clarification, good to see you both thanks very much. >> thank you for having us. >> straight ahead police officers threatening to

then he said he didn't. then he said he did. then he said he didn't. maria: the fight for $15 minimum wage is on. the effect on the restaurant industry today. will robots and computers take human jobs. we'll take a closer look. two airlines suspending service to and from venezuela amid the economic crisis. the look at the cost of socialism coming up. cashing in on controversy, beyonce looks to make a profit after police officers threaten to boycott working at her concerts. markets mostly higher. in asia overnight gains across the board. shanghai composite posted a gain of better than 3%. best one-day performance in china nearly three months. european markets looking other way, edging lower. the eurozone face as second straight month of deflation in the month of may. out of the central bank decision which happens on thursday. in the u.s., around the highs of the morning. up 31 points on the dow jones
8:32 am
industrial average as we are expecting a higher open for the broader averages ahead of pretty big economic reports this week. the numbers are in for donald trump's first official trump victory fund-raiser. it happened in los angeles last week. the event raising $6.6 million, exceeding all expectations according to what sources tell fox news. the amount suggesting that the presumptive presidential republican nominee is attracting top donors. my next guest is on the trump victory leadership team and attended the event. joining me is cke restaurants ceo, andy puzder. he is ceo of hardee's and carls, jr. >> thank you, maria. maria: give us color on the event. donald trump and rnc raising $6 million. did it feel like there was pivot, that people are excited about trump and willing to put their money where their mouth is? >> people were really excited. it was a great event. there were people there who
8:33 am
supported jeb bush, marco rubio, scott walker, carly fiorina and ted cruz. it was necessary, everybody felt great to be in the same room supporting the same candidate. there was a lot of energy. mr. trump did a great job at the event. overall it was very, very positive. maria: what's your takeaway from this, governor huckabee? >> it shows republicans are rallying around donald trump and that includes financial donors. there was concern there wasn't. you know, i think it is pretty clear, andy, what you're seeing there in california, what you saw at the event was indicative, people want to win and they know that donald trump gives them the best shot of doing that and he can beat hillary clinton. >> absolutely. i'm absolutely convinced donald trump will raise enough money to be very competitive with hillary clinton. he is also changed the rules, governor, as you know. the way he uses social media, the way he really, i want to say manipulates the media but really gets media attention really
8:34 am
changed rules how you run a campaign. he will have money and have that personality about people want to see him. hillary clinton is not going to have that. i think he will have big advantage in this respect. >> andy, it is dagen mcdowell. i want to know privately the conversations you've had fellow businessmen and women in terms of if anybody was hesitant about supporting donald trump. what conversations have you had with them to change their minds? >> well, a lot of people, if you were at all involved in politics over the past eight, 10 years, you probably knew somebody in this race. there were 16 people on that stage or 17, initially, and you probably knew one of those people, probably liked them and were supportive. it was a very, very difficult cycle for people. but the west way i can characterize it, the most impressive thing, the most refreshing thing about donald trump, working class americans don't resent him, they don't envy him. they don't think he is evil
8:35 am
billionaire. they see him as successful and they want to be like him in they want to be successful. that is the america i grew up in. that is the america i remember. that is an america i would take risks to defend and i think people are coming in contact with what the working class really understood right from the beginning, that we need change and this is a person that is will lead us to a better place. i think you're really seeing a different sense. maria: i totally agree. i think there is aspirational, there is aspirational message here. >> that was articulated. maria: he is successful, i want to be successful. >> andy the missing piece of the puzzle from some people, there are things he said construed as racist, seen phobe pick or misogynistic. is this a gap reaching out to fill? we had muslim republicans talking about their support for donald trump and how they hoped he would reach out more to the support of american muslim
8:36 am
community. is this something you see as part of his activities going forward? >> i think donald trump will reach a broad spectrum of voters. you know, even if you think back to the last cycle, mitt romney is a wonderful man. i love mitt. he is a great guy. would have been a great president you wish he wouldn't have made comment about 41% and talk about self-deportation and he talked about china as currency manipulate tomorrow. these comment were made in the past. donald trump has a way of conveying his message so forceful it draws attention to the message. if you know people who knew him in new york, and i do not know mr. trump well, but if you talk to people who knew him in new york he is not racist, not prejudiced against women or muslims. he is very honest businessman and deals with people in a very forthright way. so i think that will start to come across. i hope it starts to come across. i think he will do very well in that respect. maria: i want to ask but the
8:37 am
minimum wage. we had the former ceo of mcdonald's on last week but before i get to that, the up number of a billion dollars thrown around that donald trump needs to raise. is that what you think he needs to raise to compete effectively with hillary clinton or is it less than? i know you said a minute ago he will be able to raise a lot of money. what is that number. >> i don't know the number. this guy broken every rule. if it were any of the other candidates i would say we need a billion dollars, but with donald trump, i just don't know. i've been so wrong in this cycle so far i hate to take any guesses. i think he can do very well, well, with less than a billion. can you imagine mr. trump with billion dollars and social media presence? i think it would be amazing. >> it would be unbelievable. former mcdonald's usa ceo ed renzi was on the show last thursday. he said purchasing $35,000 robots would be cheaper than
8:38 am
hiring individuals paying them $15 an hour minimum wage. listen to this. >> it is cheaper to buy $35,000 robotic arm than hiring employee inefficient, making $15 an hour bagging french fries. it is nonsense and destructive and inflationary and will cause a job loss across this country like you're not going to believe. maria: what do you think, andy, job losses you will not believe as minimum wage takes ahold across the country? >> you're seeing automation across a very broad perspective. banks with atms, gas stations, airports, grocery stores. automation is coming. the question should we be implementing policies that make low-skilled working class americans more expensive than the job that they're taking justifies? in other words it costs more to hire them than that job produces in benefit for the employer. when that is the case, employers don't hire people.
8:39 am
there is absolutely no doubt that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour will result in very significant job losses. the cbo said, congressional budget office, said at $10 an hour you would lose half a million jobs. nobody wants to see half a million people put out of work, particularly as working class is, they need to be educated and need to be trained to deal with the new economy and deal with automation. you don't want to rush it. you don't want to make the situation worse than it is, when you make employing somebody more expensive than automating a position, you will get more automation. i think ed is absolutely right. maria: we'll leave it there. andy, good to see you, thank you so much. >> good to see you, maria. maria: andy pudzer joining us there. no love for queen bee. controversy surrounding beyonce concert in pittsburgh. why police refuse to work the event. in venezuela why some say socialism is to blame.
8:40 am
we're back in three minutes time. [beekeeper] from bees to business expenses,

8:43 am
maria: welcome back. 45 minutes away from the opening bell for a tuesday. let's take a look at these markets. we're expecting higher opening for broader averages. office depot announcing $100 million stock repurchase program as part of the company's plan to, quote, enhance shareholder value. comes at collapse of the company's deal with staples. we're watching shares of starbucks. the coffee giant announcing two new drinks coming to the cold bar. the vanilla sweet cream cold brew and nitro cold brew. shares of starbucks down better than 8% this year. by all accounts it was great month of may for broader markets. we continue to see money moving into the equities. latin america's biggest airline is suspending service into venezuela due to the economic situation. this comes after germany's lufthansa is suspending service to the company immediately because of unpatrioticket fares.
8:44 am
we have stuart varney. welcome to you. >> good morning. maria: venezuela, you have lessons learned there. what do you take? three-day holiday weekend, right, saturday morning i buy my hard copy of "new york times" and reading their report on the collapse of venezuela. not once, not even once is the word socialism used. not once. oh, no, venezuela is collapsing because of the collapse in oil prices or because of very bad drought. socialism is never mentioned. then we have the case of bernie sanders, the democratic socialist. he was asked device for his opinion on the collapse of socialism in venezuela. he refused to respond. he says, no, no, i have an opinion. but right now i'm focused on the presidential election campaign. in other words, he is not going to say what ruined venezuela, socialism, because he knows perfectly well it is his policies that ruined it. what i'm getting at here, is that the left will never admit
8:45 am
to the failures of collectivism. they certainly won't admit to it right now because we're going into presidential election where collectivism is front and center from a couple of leading candidates. that is my opinion. >> stuart i want to quickly point it, speaking of bernie sanders and supporting socialism in venezuela, at the golden state warriors game he was sitting next to danny glover who famously supported hugo chavez and loved to go down to venezuela and visit chavez to take his photo with him. that is the connection i made. forget the basketball game. that is proof positive that he doggone well knows the outcome of what happened. >> premise of my opinion is that socialism absolutely doesn't work and what it is applied to countries like venezuela it is catastrophe and that socialism is the reason for the collapse of that economy. i'd like to see that reflected, it is opinion, i would like to see that opinion reflected in
8:46 am
mainstream media in america or by bernie sanders or by some of the hollywood stars who just loved chavez when he was ruining the country's economy. i would like some honesty, don't see it. maria: that is great analysis. bring in governor huckabee. go ahead,. >> stuart, idea of venezuela suspending airlines. really messing up my vacation plans because everyone i know wants to vacation in venezuela where the economy is falling apart. why don't we understand this stuff? this is so simple and what you have pointed out is that socialism simply doesn't work. so why are so many americans, help me understand this, still trying to embrace the concept? >> first of all, governor, sarcasm is low form of wit but when we get beyond that i ask perfectly valid question and i'm not sure i have got a good answer for you. why are so many people, so many young people enamored with the idea of socialism in america? i guess it is because young people are idealistic.
