6:04 am
what do you think? at this point, trump has had a tough couple of weeks. can he turn it around? >> he can turn it around and use this full to reach out to some donors and other people on the fence for supporting him and say do we really want to have four years of hillary clinton so he can make his case in with a poll that shows in 10-point under, this is a fantastic opportunity for the campaign if the campaign of the campaign if i were enticing take control in bush's numbers up outreaching do some of these donors on the fence. maria: they are doing that. a little bit of panic with the closest advisers to say to him, stick to message. >> yeah, that is a very tall order same names don't necessarily match with the new cycle. as far as being on message, there's some bad news in the pulver chimes message.
6:05 am
51% of americans prefer hillary clinton over trump on immigration. immigration is his signature issue. it's a large part of the reason he won the american primaries. the majority of americans think clinton would be better than trump, means that his message might have major existential problems. maria: whatever problem it has been, it is self-inflicted. >> hillary clinton had a horrible week. all distracted by the things that trump was saying they didn't have to talk about. dagen: at there are a lot of numbers in this poll. there are a couple of things that stood out for me. honest and trustworthy. 36% think clinton honest and trustworttrustwort hy. at the same number that can donald trump honest and trustworthy. he used to have a huge advantage on that issue. only 78% of republicans support
6:06 am
donald trump. he's got to get to the 90% mark. for matt romney was 93%. he is trailing the romney said vantage mightily among many important herbs including wife for example. he's got a lot of work to do. maria: he has to get almost every white male. >> how he is going to recover is in the one-on-onone-on-on e debate. when he's on stage with hillary, voters will see the huge issue and judge people rather than what they hear in the media picked one-on-one but the real issues are for rich person will help get his numbers back up. maria: yesterday really made news with the interview with newt gingrich. dagen: by the way, it got picked up at the hill, "politico," "wall street journal." maria: newt gingrich is very candid with us and give us a window above is going on behind closed yours. house speaker paul bryant field concerns about a lack of gop unity. trump and his running mate both
6:07 am
weighed in. >> i want to tell you the campaign is doing really well. it's never been so well united. we started on june 16th. right now it is the best in terms since the beginning. >> i talk to donald trump just about every day. you're always going to your defense that is all discussions. i've never heard anything about a meeting of that kind. colorado campaigning friday. this campaign is totally focused on strengthening america at home and abroad. maria: is the focus? can they turn the focus then regrouped there? >> there's not a lot of evidence that the focus to a trump has last week or so going after paul ryan and seth go after hillary clinton. the unity question i find very
6:08 am
unconvinced they'd. his decision not to endorse paul ryan has major repercussions in d.c., particularly for reince priebus. they are so influential. they got aboard. paul ryan is a little bit, but he hasn't gone after trump that bad. the fact that trump scorned that loyalty was extremely humiliating as to my sources are telling me. reince priebus is absolutely i've read about it. maria: and i have a similar situation on the democratic arty. the bernie sanders supporters are not there yet. >> wikileaks -- the e-mail links to some pretty bad stuff. they were ridiculed for saying this was. they were in the back for hillary the whole time. turns out they were right. they managed to shame them into silence a little bit.
6:09 am
not saying that's a good thing. immediately flipped it over. >> not decide to bias. i felt like all trump, but the way the media reports said. it came out and went away. maria: they change the conversation. dagen: trump says what he says in the american people are paying attention to what he says. we for example will carry a donald trump press conference. you can hear what he says and base your opinion on what comes out of his mouth. a couple things. a campaign of time media. the fact that he talks down about the media so much is kind of ironic. and also conservatives have long preached personal responsibility. at some point you've got to take responsibility for what comes out of your own mouth. i find that funny.
6:10 am
maria: a big-money race in the month of july. they both raised a bunch of money. trump seems to be doing better in this regard. clinton made the 90 million, trump raising 80 million. your thoughts and allowed on that. >> well, that is what i look eye. that is the number of a cat. you can look at the polls, but the polls will change as we get into this election. it's very important to look at the money. the fact that donald trump -- there's a $10 million difference. that's pretty big. a lot of that has to do with now you can see how donald trump is going to govern a hispanic and mike pence. mike pence is the best proof of how donald trump will govern good mike pence was somebody who endorse ted cruz and turned around and shows a little bit of unity that by picking someone whereas he could have picked somebody like his buddy newt gingrich or chris christie. there is proof right there. donald trump's numbers go up
6:11 am
even higher. maria: he seems to be cap one so far. let's see if he can get through this latest bomb. good to see you. thank you, ladies. a firefighter in dubai got this morning after fighting the blaze caused by a crash landing of the emirates played in dubai. an update of what could've caused the trouble. tesla hopes to get investors to forget about office but unveiling new cars. back in a moment right here.

6:16 am
maria: you went to buy them further with the new cars and see how much the company is bleeding. >> elon musk has been doing this a long time and he is a history of losing money for a while and turning a company around. they just closed an idea to buy solar city. if you believe what they will put up, look at short-term losses that he'll be able to raise money. it's not sf will run out of money. they are getting the orders and the stock has a lot of room to run. maria: than with oil prices go way upcoming serial interest in electric cars. they've come way down. >> exactly. three years ago no one was going to buy an suv and now they are flying off the shelves. dagen: there is told to run the company. as you expand to different models like the cheaper model coming out, does it have the same kind of cultlike attraction to car buyers.

maria: investors comic con was hoping for more participation in the workforce. our aging population partly to blame for the shrinking labor force and slowing economic growth had a study in "the wall street journal" says gdp growth path by 5.5% for every 10% increase in state's population of senior citizens. the labor force grows more slowly as more workers retire. train us to break it all down as chief investment officer of federated investors paid good to see you. when you look at the labor market ahead of the numbers tomorrow, how do you characterize it and how does that show an overall economic growth story? >> at a solid did we expect one
6:22 am
a.d., which is right and can send this. as long as we are somewhere under 200, it's not too hot, not too cold kind of labor number keeps the on the sidelines. maria: it keeps that sat on the sidelines in a slow crawl in terms of growth. >> no breakout at all. the worst thing would be another number like last month were showed a lot of growth. you would hear more talk about the fed raising rates. we can handle slow growth the way we've been. the issue is what happens if growth picks up and the fed has to move and start raising rates. i don't know how the market reacts. maria: with diabetes here? >> sooner or later they're going to have to hike. no way before the election. particularly with the situation so insert, as long as they are only hiking a little bit, one at a time, it's a stable situation.
6:23 am
the thing that would really spooked the market is if growth accelerates and inflation numbers start to pick up on the wage gains outside the range they are looking for. that will be something people will watch tomorrow more than the jobs number. dagen: does it bother you for presidential candidate is talking in terms of population fixing entitlements. medicare will be installed in in 12 years according to the latest trustee report for social security not much better 2034. there is no way given what the $90 trillion unfunded liability for entitlement would grow our way out of this. >> one thing that makes me nervous is the wall street strategists i talked to and everyone is talking about a big fiscal spend next her one way or the other. the market is starting to price in a fiscal stimulus driven wrote. if you look at the numbers, to reality as even though they came down the last few years, the
6:24 am
sequester rosoff in the entitlement really starts to expand because of the baby boom retirement. whoever becomes president is going to be facing a fiscal situation not as good as it is today. we might get some aid that the bank of japan with the headline looks great, but the details are not so great. i don't think we have a ton of room. >> people should talk more about these kinds of things. abundant grace of the problem and then move on to something else. dagen: hillary clinton has promised to expand social security and medicare and donald trump says you can't touch it. >> they all think they are okay right now. it will start to expand. it will put the next president in a bind. >> is it's not because they can't think of a solution? it doesn't resonate with the
6:25 am
public. >> no one wants to hear you're going to cut my social security. maria: another scenario that could have been his recession. there are still people who think the u.s. will go into recession. the bank of england to announce a decision in a few minutes. we will bring it to you. they are expected to cut interest rates for the first time since 2009. does that affect markets? >> they are going to cut it. the question is if it's 25 or 50. the markets disappointed it's only 25. we are going slow growth. we don't see a systemic risk. we could see a pullback to zero. who knows. if we cap blend, it will be a modest negative i suppose to a banking system collapse zero wait-09 scenario. at the right ballot is not the highest risk. if it is one, it's not one that
6:26 am
is going to take earnings from 120 to 80. >> if we miss them -- >> yeah, it is more of a risk of a scud from outside. maybe europe could be that scud. maria: would you put money into europe right now? >> above a cautious eye narrowed. maria: in terms the u.s.? >> modestly we are recommending a 15% equity. a little bit nature point. violations are pretty good, but the 1 dollar, one euro, one pound, 1% on the fed. stocks can keep crawling along. maria: steven, great to see you. thank you for joining us. special coverage tomorrow morning for the july jobs report begins tomorrow right here on "mornings with maria."

6:31 am
our laiders are incompetent. >> hillary clinton and barack obama have essentially put a price tag on the head of every american traveling abroad. that is judgment this country cannot stand for four more years. maria: we have the latest from the campaign trail this morning. a terror arrest made here in the u.s. while it was a police officer. details on that coming up. president obama pardons another nfl star thomas, how many others had sentences commuted? we will tell you ahead. the u.s. embassy and markets with big job's number. looks like the averages are not too far where they closed yesterday after a losing street

6:33 am
mr. trump with all sorts of issues that are going to damage his credibility. that's what they're trying to do. secondly, as much as people would tend to give someone the benefit of the doubt, mr. trump has no record while ms. clinton her record is there, at least she's been there. the bottom thrien me, trump -- mr. trump is going to have to do far better regarding raising the numbers by trying to show who he is going to pick to manage those programs, who is going to be basically have the secretary defense, the folks who are actually managing the program because he didn't have record, ms. clinton has to come head winds before issues such as benghazi, the russian reset, such as the north korean debacle. negotiated their way in nuclear program and here it is again. maria: that could be one way to get out of the slump he's in
6:34 am
right now. if he announces credible team around him. can he do it? >> the nuclear thing is his larger issue of him being baited with a tweet, i don't know if he can change that at this point. maybe if he turns to someone else. specially people like paul ryan. he needs to get beyond the ego thing because this is not necessary and clearly affecting negatively. maria: that's for sure. dagen: who would be a good secretary of defense for donald trump? >> i'm going that i -- name my friend mike flynn, he knows a lot of what goes on. he's a friend of mine so i think it would be a perfect guy. maria: he's a supporter. >> yeah, i think there's a handful of other folks who would be equally well. i would like to the reagan bench
6:35 am
who during the cold war, you know, one of my dear friends and mentors is mcfor -- mcfarland. you need to look at people who had success when they were in. the current deal with iran, one of a number of debacles. maria: threat of islamic state continues to be a factor in the 2016 election, yesterday nicholas young, 36-year-old dc metro transit officer charged with attempt to go provide material support to isis. and then we've got the stabbing in london this morning. officials say that they have not ruled out terrorism. is the obama administration doing enough to minimize the threat overseas and here at home? >> no, how isis would do in
6:36 am
attack against a facility. if i had a four-man teenage team i could take down a facility. i'm just telling you, that they're not taking it seriously. people behind the scenes are pushing people like me to make real assessments. the strategic level, we are still not ahead of them. we have not got a handle in banking, refugee pipeline and for goodness sake, we know that they're doing reconnaissance. maria: there's not a plan on the other side either. hillary clinton keeps on saying that we need more intelligence. why we don't have it right now is beyond me. dagen: her proposals are so vague in what she's going to say
6:37 am
. mike: it's not working, we need to change it and we need to address it. that really plays to donald trump's hand. i'm surprise it had numbers are split there regarding national security because to me that's one of the areas where he clearly is stronger and is something we need and should focus on. maria: looking at the polls and they're on the same level of terrorism, i'm just asking the question rather than answering it, if people feel if he's erratic, perception of personality is an issue? maria: people question why is he getting focused on this when, in fact, this is the issue and hillary clinton has a lot of things around her to poke and he's not doing it, colonel. >> i think the bottom line is
6:38 am
that you've got understand that the terror issue, for example, is something that you can't simply say i'm going to do more intelligence an resolve it. you have to have a plan of execution. let's face it, ms. clinton already had her chance. she was was already there and the obama administration, one of my other friends is jim, jim has talked to me about the issues that cia faces, cia is not as aggressive. if you want to do things that are effect ifer, i would go with donald trump over ms. clinton because i think he will go through and to be much more aggressive not only doing intelligence collection but terrorism. maria: some people is charging and criticized. donald trump slammed the white house because he claimed the obama administration paid 4 $00 million to iran for american hostages. the story is out there and i
6:39 am
want to get your reaction. >> it took $400 million put it in arab planes and flew it over to iran. folks, are we stupid are we. i wonder what happens with that $400 million, i wonder who ends up getting it. the deal we made with iran and that probably was hostage money to get hostages out for $400 million because it was exact timing. our leaders are incompetent. >> was this man ransom for the folks that was released in. >> no, it was not. it is against the policy of the united states to pay ransom for hostages. [laughter] maria: we are laughing because what else could it be? those concerns were overruled by the state department. the money was transferred on the same day that the hostages were
6:40 am
released, number one, number two, the money was all in cash not in dollars but in euros, swiss franks, unmarked jet, you might as well put it in a paper bag and put it under the table for drug money. why all the secrets if it was all on the level? and number three the iranian immediately called it ransom in their publicity. >> the brown bag passed across the table during lunch. if doj says it looks like ransom it's ransom, and if the iranians say ransom it's ransom. it was brush intoed the rug. they pay cutter something on the order a billion plus dollars to basically take the taliban 5 as part of the taliban, part of the exchanging and the fact is we
6:41 am
don't know where that money even went. that went back to the taliban. the money goes out to places like north korea for initial research, this is not a good deal, this is what appears to be exactly what it is. maria: we know that it's probably going to terrorism. the leading state sponsor of terrorism, iran. >> the white house defense knows. maria: we don't do that. you just did. emails are one thing but this is endaughterring the lives of americans everywhere. the worst -- the lowest of the low. dagen: three more iranians were arrested. mark my words, you're going to see another payment, another ransom deal to release those three people before the inauguration in january or at least that's what iran is going to demand. maria: this is all part of the 1.7 billion that we are giving them.
6:42 am
dagen: in new york banks that the courts said that money is going to the victims of your state sponsor terrorism but they're going to demand that back too. maria: unbelievable. outrage. state department splurged on this piece of art in foreign embassy. wait till you hear how much tax money spending up next. the world's largest mural of a flag, more on that coming up. stay with us

7:25 am
situation is going to continue to stay strong, we did see, oil that was lower earlier start to turn up, after the bank of england that i had that decision, to cinterest rates dollar a break from the highs, that brought the oil prices back up, today, so if you look at oil, where oil he closes off today is really critical i think in the mood of the market. if it canaveral in the face of very strong supply that means there is optimism that we're going to see dmabd kick in that is going to be bullish for prices if we we resume sell-off ominous sign for the global economy another market i like natural gas market something that could happen, that i, that hasn't happened since hurricane katrina in 2006. we could see a withdrawal from natural gas supplies, in summer you never usually see because, usually, natural gas is thank you wintertime

7:33 am
2000 dollars per person. family of four, 8,000 dollars that is not debt. that is the increased debt this year alone, that is the extra amount the government is borrowing. you can't go on like that, and, the only way to deal with it is to slow the growth of the entitlements, we are on a path in by defense spending is going to go down to lowest share gdp since world war ii, the same is going to be true for the nondefense annually appropriated spending. so 2 1/2% gdp so we're not going to solve this problem by going after either defense or all myriad little annually appropriated programs. >> are like infrastructure program. >> infrastructure program is going to be more spending. >> right. >> the fed is sort of made it looked like this is all very ease, because interest rates are so low. there is the -- are gone,
7:34 am
there is no pushback. so. >> marty what this -- 19 or 20 trillion dollars in debt yet the percentage the government is paying on that is that historically low levels, if we got growth, which you caused the fed to raise interest rates wouldn't that kind of really compound this problem. >> certainly would. certainly will. i mean at a congressional budget office thinks we are going back to quote normal interest rates, but with the kind of debt that we have, the kind of borrowing that is going on, i don't see why interest rates won't be higher in the future, in a real terms than they've been historically. >> isn't growth what we want to like under normal circumstances if you want to pay down reduce thdecit you want growth, right but in this case. >> only way to reduce deficit is to raise taxes or cut spending, so you can reduce the size of the debt relative to gdp but -- uh -- real
7:35 am
change has to come from changing amount of borrowing that we do. >> how do you -- the economy right now. >> u.s. economy is in good shape, actually. despite all this. there is more he uncertainty there is more to worry about that i would say we are in good shape, the main thing i keep looking at is what is happening to labor markets, to personal income, and to spending, you see how households are continuing to increase their spending. >> marty we have been debating all morning about donald trump you infrastructure plan, seems to fly in the face what conservatives preached he is going to double hillary clinton infrastructure spend would be at least half a trillion dollars. he would plan to spend over five years. and you know he tried to explain how he would fund it talking to stuart varney an infrastructure fund it that individuals would invest in, but that is still government borrowing is it not?
7:36 am
and does -- how do you feel about that? >> in terms of. >> we don't -- >> your conservative bent. >> we don't need an infrastructure program to stimulate the economy. there may be a lot of infrastructure that is -- would benefit from new spending. but if we do that then we have to deal with the out year deficits. so any plan that i would like any plan that a conservative economist would like would have to combine whatever spending we do in the short run, with plans to slow the growth of entitlements so that the long-term debt isn't on the kind of wild rising path that the a congressional budget office is warning us about. >> look you said the economy is doing okay. and we are growing, and yet the bank of england this morning cul-de-sac interest rates -- cut interest rates first time since 2009 we know business leaders in the u.s. are note investing.
7:37 am
they are not we see that from factory orders report from durable goods we know that -- we are looking at a horrible gdp story, so about what gives? i mean -- >> two things. if you think about the profits that companies are making, profits are -- really looking very poor. >> -- year over year. >> that is right, and back to where they were in 2012, so you don't blame businesses nor not investing in environment where there is great uncertainty about the policies that we're going to have after the election and where the -- profits are down, capacity utilization has not gone up, so that is not too surprising. but to me, the key thing to look at is what is happening in labor market we will get another number on friday. but i think there is every reason to think we're going to continue to have pretty tight labor markets. the gdp number -- you know i have been doing a lot of work
7:38 am
on how the official gdp numbers are created. you don't want to know. it is really -- [laughter] -- it is really a -- they don't know how to capture it is too hard they don't know how to capture, what is happening to the quality of product, they don't know how to capture the benefits of new prutsoducts we are underestimating growth of real gdp that is not to say it wouldn't be nicer to have official gdp growing at 3%, rather than 1%. >> marty you have a lot of experience in this field, and if i had told you 10 years ago would you have negative interest rates around the world or close to zero interest rates here in u.s., would you definitely not have said and stock market will be at historical all-time highs. >> how do we balance that something has to give. >> yes, i agree with that something has to give but the stock market is is boosted by very low interest rates, so we've got in all asset
7:39 am
classesing we've got investors reaching for yield. so whether it is the stock market -- the price/earnings ratio for the s&p, is now about 55% higher than its historic average 55% higher, commercial real estate cap rates extremely low the bonds themselves priced in a way that suggests we're going to keep these low interest rates forever. >> i don't believe that, so i think we're building up risks, that could create some serious problems. >> we will leave it in great to see you. thank you so much for joining us martin feldstein joining is one headlined from analyst on street bank of england unveil bazooka, certainly moving british pound right now. >> -- conphotoi nfetti? how powerful is it. >> moving markets stocks up as marty said they love s central bank action you've got more this morning, up next it is

tried to bring it into the future, and that was with radioshack started with you a you super bowl added all about 80s, 90s all it did point he maintain leslie nothing relevant about keeping radioshack as a business. >> you have to really be careful where we talk about trends, you can't use a trend for everything, you have to really do due diligence make sure it is going to be meaningful and connective to the audience i think that if too many marketers say everything brought back will all fail it has to be really meaningful to millenials to work. >> how about pepsi story going back to 1990s, this summer beginning next week, pepsi for a limited time selling the pepsi talking about it on desk clear soda sold for a limited time what do you think? >> i don't know about crystal pepsi being successful but you
7:54 am
know coke surge had huge ground as well support through facebook all people wanting it back, they loved you know mountain dew competitor from 90s working tested with amazon did very well now being brought back across many regions of the u.s. so it is very brand specific and again, it has to have some element that a millennial will really connect with, and the surge and the -- the sports kind of has more caffeine base to it makes sense crystal pepsi? i don't know i don't know if ab connectivity there for millennial to say oh, that is something from the past that i really want today. i am not sure that will work, it will really depend on the message that pepsi delivers to the millennials but that is a -- i am not sure about that one i would agree. >> i think when you talk about mill yaltz nowadays they can share everything with you know whether snapchat or instagram, so i think really, for a product to work they need to get the groundswell you talked about kind of like hip cities
7:55 am
are mountain dew you need right group to grab it and then be able to push it out i think, that that is the key, in my opinion to marketing today. >> yeah. >> i couldn't agree more. >> there is mcdonald's, mcdonald's with hipster hamburger last year what do you think about this one? >> i do like that one i do like it sort of cartoon character from the past gave it up, real person to do it kind of fun, kind of funky, you know, it -- it has something that is kind of memorable as we said before a shareable with friends i think it works i do quirky enough to work fun, that i playful harking back to stuff you can enjoy, that is o emotional elie connective easy to put into lives and to share that one works for me. >> yeah. >> how about the colonel sanders kentucky fried chicken
7:56 am
or excuse me ktc bringing back colonel sanders different actors playing the crispy colonel sanders is super creepy. >> very creepy. >> the best -- should have been colonel -- >> george a hamilton crispy colonel sanders george hamilton i will double-check i am pretty sure. >> the colonel sanders thing more than this situation millenials in my opinion thurp sure offing as brand when at the went to ktc for a while changed product formulation some turmoil, some dissatisfaction with the ktc brand i think thinking about this long of about being treated as sort of nostalgia per se as way of resurrecting the brand identity from the past to make the brand in other notice nl again when you have a character, in a brand, even like -- gekko things of that naish resonate with all
7:57 am
kinds o of consumers that was a tact to try to make ktc more relevant again. >> thanks so much see you soon. >> next hour former new york city mayor rudy giuliani with us with us for the hour his take on everything from the trump campaign, to business today stay with us. new bikes aren't selling guys... what are we gonna do? how about we pump more into promotions? ♪ nah. what else? what if we hire more sales reps? ♪ nah. what else? what if we digitize the whole supply chain? so people can customize their bike before they buy it. that worked better than expected. i'll dial it back. yeah, dial it back. just a little. live business, powered by sap. when you run live, you run simple.

8:05 am
it is it is an evolving campaign, he is a new candidate that adds a little bit of -- more of a learning curve, than would normally be the case. but -- you get bad weeks good weeks, ronald reagan changed his campaign manager after nominated, he took the campaign manager of hised a sar. >> jim baker two months into the campaign -- and -- bush the older started a campaign against dukakis 16, 17 points behind. then he hired roger ailes won by 12%, trump is in much better shape than that much better shape. >> we talked about this, and people we -- all follow mr. trump very closely. but to use your boxing analogy these seem self-inflicted blows he says something that causes and you can being proclaim the mainstream media but the people take issue
8:06 am
with. even people who want to support him, and those people are upset right now. >> they are upset they want to be reassured that -- you are talking to him newt is talking to him is in a i am i am going to tell you democrats lot more loi loyal than we are. >> get in line. >> hillary clinton? lied to two gold star mothers we know that right, because we have the telephoneing conversation with chelsea explaining what attack was all about then we have her lying directly to two gold star mothers, you can tell me both women are not telling the truth? how come in thats are not all upset at here for lying about it how to come democrats are not upset about fact she was found grossly negligent handling national security how come did democrats are not upset about the fact that if i with headed of the fbi couldn't pass my fbiclearance to have job as assistant u.s. attorney. >> said to creates wallace that is not what i heard from a fbi she denied.
8:07 am

8:10 am
american citizens in iran succeeded. >> the question -- what -- >> let me say one thing about that. >> if money wasn't paid on that same weekend. >> again, i guess -- >> what i am saying is a pretty simple negotiations that took place. >> we all know, the money was paid the day thank you hostages were released we all know, that iran was -- their propaganda saying it was ransom. >> why trump is going to win that is exactly what he is running against that man, josh earnest i don't know him he just lied. that is an out -- there is a -- you have to have iq of minus 2, not to realize he just lied. >> how do we get to the point where focusing more on that because you look at polls right now, trump and hillary neck and neck in trustworthiness should not be that way but is how do we get -- >> first of all -- still in summer i don't believe people
8:11 am
focus on elections until about 45 days out, really focus. i think you get about 3 chances to nixon had the theory of ebbs and flows in campaigns, reagan had theory of the right moments in campaigns -- that what you just saw has happened so many times, the american people believe washington was crooked. that washington lies, and they are right. they do lie. that not only was that that a ransom payment that -- >> let me be clear -- >> four hundred million dollars in cash american cash taken from here to europe. >> in swiss francs, euros here is what i call that justice department complained i call that money unify laundering trading with enemy i call that illegal dealings with iran, that -- the law i went to read yesterday says directly or
8:12 am
indirectly so just because they paid it in swiss francs that is indirect part of the law. >> why all cash so it can't be he tracked. >> because they. >> a --? cash that that is what i being convicted people tractions. >> cash normal person would do if i had somebody that put four hundred million dollars in a trunk, went over to europe converted into european money, you don't want think i would put that person in jail for money unify laundering justice department did not object to did not just object should investigate it what do you mean the justice department objected they are a prosecutorial agency not advisory agency. >> they serve. >> because we have as donald trump says, a crooked rigged system, hillary not indicted, she about directly violated federal law! , and has not been indicted. >> you are on message the way everybody wants donald trump to be on message.
8:13 am
>> yes -- watch. time have patience donald trump is going to win this election, because he is where american people are they just he has to get some other things out of the way, and focus on that, has to focus on, the key parts of his campaign, like he did in the speech the speech is a perfect outline of what his campaign is going to be about should be about, probably be a few more dweefgs deviations mr. assange claims he has more e-mails if you don't think russians have all her e-mails you have no idea how good russians are. >> how great dems were, completely changers the conversation to russia. >> and all and all of them are all -- look, you can't tell me that half the democrats don't realize hillary clinton is the biggest liar they put on their ticket probably in the century. they don't go around saying that. maria: right. >> what hill gets in hillary

>> welcome back, happy thursday. i'm maria bartiromo. it's thursday, august 4th. here are your top stories at 8:30 a.m. on the east coast. hillary clinton opens a lead on donald trump in the fox news polls. it shows that terrorism is the top issue and trump talking president obama's policies. >> barack obama who is grossly incompetent, who is a terrible president and he is grossly incompetent. he doesn't know what the hell he's doing. oba obama-- obama will not use the term radical islamic terrorism. a big fat horrible problem. we're going to knock it out. maria: this coming amid new questions over unity in the party. another republican congressman now saying he will not vote for
8:31 am
trump in the general election. new details this morning in the london staffing-- stabbing spree. at least one person has been killed, an american. police believe it's not terrorism related. and the trump name disappearing from the sky line. we'll tell you about it. details on the media giant's earnings coming up. and bank of england decision this morning, the bank of england cut interest rates for the first time since 2009. futures indicating a higher opening and in fact, stocks reacted immediately. in europe, for example, stocks added to the early gains on the bink of england decision. the f. t 100 up. and futures are indicating a 50 point gain for the dow in the u.s. asian markets are higher, nikkei average off better than 1%.
8:32 am
republican presidential nominee donald trump and mike pence emphasizing party unity as a new poll finds hillary clinton is leading donald trump now by 10 points. blake burman with the latest. >> good morning, down double digits, that's one of several eyesores for donald trump in the latest fox news poll. hillary clinton as you mentioned leads by 10 points in the latest readings, and the 9 when the third party candidates are factored in. the startling numbers for trump, he only received the backing of 78% of republican and roughly one in every eight republicans said they would vote for clinton. the top republicans are stage some sort of intervention with trump. the top of the ticket tried to portray a unified front. >> the campaign is doing really well. it's never been so well united. we started on june 16th and i would say right now it's the
8:33 am
best in terms of being united that it's been since we began. >> and they keep thinking they've done him in and you get up the next morning and donald trump is still standing tall and fighting for the american people. >> now, the biggest, brightest spot in the poll, maria, for trump comes with independents. he gets 41% and leads among that group by 8 points, but you have to wonder how much that matters if he's only going to get the support of roughly eight of ten republicans. maria: yeah, it's an important point blake burman, thank you so much. recent global unrest putting the world on edge. we're following the developing details of a stabbing spree in london leaving one person dead, an american woman, and five injured. authorities now say that there's no evidence of a radicalization after a man was arrested in connection with the attack yesterday. meanwhile, here at home, a washington d.c. metro transit officer was charged yesterday with attempting to provide material support for isis.
8:34 am
the first u.s. law enforcement officer charged with aiding the terrorist group. and joining us now is pinell county sheriff paul babeau. what should be done with terrorism? it's not quieting down and getting worse. >> absolutely, we have to be far more aggressive. the approach president obama has taken clearly has not worked. we are at war. yet, we have not declared war and we're fighting, he sends 50 soldiers over to syria to defeat isis and he says we're really, really going to defeat them and sends 250 more. that's not a way-- i'm a retired army officer, served in iraq, that's not a way to defeat your enemy and we have to be more aggressive here at home as well in terms of identifying, routing out home grown terrorist cells. you can't wait years. you can't interview these
8:35 am
suspects multiple times and then all of a sudden and scratch your head and wonder why, how these things occurred and we've had clue upon clue. maria: we're with mayor guiliani and we haven't heard a substantial plan from hillary clinton either. how would donald trump handle this in a practical way. >> i think he's pointed out first of all, that begins with you've got to recognize your enemy. you can't fight the nazis unless you realize you're fighting the nazis. you can't fight the fascists or the communists unless you realize you're fighting the communists. we're fighting an ideology and the president refuses to embrace that. and until you can see the connections between what happened with that cop and what happened in orlando and what happened in paris and what happened in nice and the catholic priest whose head was chopped off, unless you see that as all connected, having investigated very complicated cases, including terrorism cases, it's the connections
8:36 am
that allow you to be predictive, to start looking for the precursors of terrorism that the sheriff's police department is now stuck with. this is a new responsibility for the police. the fbi has to be -- has to be much more open and has to have outreach to all the 800,000 local police officers. their eyes and ears, and taught to be looking for the precursors of terrorism. hillary isn't doing this. hillary caused a lot of this when she was secretary of state, overthrowing mubarak and overthrowing gadhafi, where is one of isis' new home, bang, the libya that she created. >> that's the connection-- >> go ahead, sheriff. >> please, sheriff. >> there's a connection with this actual transit officer. back in 2011 he's traveled to libya twice to be part of the overthrow of gadhafi, and customs and border protection
8:37 am
actual actually searched through his bag and found kevlar helmets, body armor and those are clues and at that time why on earth did not our federal agents share this information with the chief of this transit authority in washington d.c.? because if that guy works for me, those are clues, i'd question that officer and he'd be fired. why was he fired just this week? >> can i add to what the sheriff is saying? the same thing with the boston marathon. the russian intelligence told us that tsarnayev was a terrorist. the fbi investigated it, they concluded not enough evidence. then tsarnayev went to russia and went to the chechnya area and had to be a big clue, like lights should have gone off. now, i know because i work with the fbi most of my life, they don't have the resources to follow up on this, but why didn't they tell the boston police department? that information should have been shared with the boston
8:38 am
police department or if it happened in new york, bratten would have gone crazy. maria: and a lot of these stories, donald trump painted doing into the election. he basically said this is what's happening and put this front and center. new fox poll though shows voters trust hillary clinton more on immigration than trump, giving her a 7% edge on this issue that is so central to trump's platform. >> what i liked about that poll is leading among independents, it's easier to get the republicans back than independents to vote for you. that 75% of r republicans will end up being 85 to 90 by the time we come to election. maria: you think they'll get the republican vote? >> they're not going to vote for hillary clinton not with the stuff happening in the world. i thought the whole incident with the priest having his head chopped off and the democratic convention saying nothing about it. maria: they didn't give a moment of silence. >> not even like one minute of prayer for a priest who is taken down off the altar and his head is chopped off like
8:39 am
we're in the sixth century and obama is in -- obama is in no century, he's on mars, i think. dagen: how about the fact about the sexual assaults in cologne, germany, overlooked and ignored, particularly in this country. mass sexual assaults by refugees and migrants from these middle eastern countries and ignored. maria: you're right. that wasn't talked about enough in the media and it's horrible. you're on the front lines in terms of the immigration issues, sheriff. what's your thought on border control? >> we don't have it. i can tell you here, being on the ground. we've had 82,000, 123,000 illegals apprehended each year just in this part of arizona alone and when you hear hillary clinton want to increase the number of refugees, asylum seekers, 550% here from the middle east and from europe, my

god, have you seen europe? germany? take central americans, mexicans, by the hundreds of thousands here? we don't see this support coming from other countries. why don't we put our country, our families, our national security first for once? that's what i want and that's what donald trump has been saying. and you can see the failures of our country because the leader of america, president obama, believes that the top concern for our country in terms of national security isn't isis, isn't terrorism, isn't an unsecured border, in fact, he says it's global warming. maria: he says climate change. >> this is why we're failing, correct. maria: thank you, sheriff. >> thank you, maria. maria: and despite the dow industrials snapping a seven-day losing streak, big names saying you should sell. and stuart varney coming up. and tim kaine on book shelves

>> welcome back. we're 45 minutes away from the opening bell for a thursday. we're looking at a higher opening this morning. stocks are higher after the bank of england lowered interest rates. and here are names on the move. viacom up better than 3% ahead of the open. the media giant with a surprise rise in second quarter revenue due to the movie business, amid the legal battle between the redstone family and the executive management. watch tesla, earnings after the bell last night, the auto maker reporting a wider than expected loss in the second quarter and is still losing money. tesla ceo saying it's on track to deliver 50,000 new vehicles on track with earlier guidance. despite the losing quarter.
8:45 am
and the bears are coming out to play and oil and gold between gains and losses as top investors bill gross and jeff gunnlack are telling them to sell everything, but gold. stuart varney. stuart: this is what happens in a world that's printing money. the brits join the zero interest rate club and the australians and the japanese. i guess that's what happens even though big name investors, you've had on your grow, bill gross, jeff gunlak, that's dramatic stuff coming from these guys and a lot of people follow their advice. here you've got a market that's staying very close to record levels, only down 1% in the latest sell off, staying up there despite profits going down and virtually zero growth in the economy. you have to conclude that it's cheap money, printing money,
8:46 am
all over the world that's keeping this market up. maria: it's a great point, because the bank of interest low interest rates and there you have a rally. it's all about the central bank. stuart: people ask me, what does it have to do with me if the bank of england lowers interest rates? what it's got to do with you, the whole world is printing money and that's keeping your 401(k) up there. maria: are they out of bullets? >> stuart, it's mike murphy, you hit the nail on the head as long as the central banks do this. if you want to allocate money to the market today, you need to believe that central banks can continue to do this indefinitely. if it stops and the air comes out of this, i think you're in for not just correction, but a major correction in the markets. stuart: mike, do you believe with all of this printing of money the end result at some point is inflation? because that's classic economics, isn't it? i don't see any sign of inflation at the moment, deflation is what we're worried about.
8:47 am
>> the plan is some point to stimulate the economy and get some inflation there, they're not getting it. i think it's the bear case here, stuart, they're behind the eight-ball and they really don't know what to do and they're going to run out of bullets. they continue to print and we keep interest rates low to negative and if they-- you know, the end game, i think, is still unknown. stuart: how many trillion yen are the japanese printing these days. how many british pounds are they going to churn out there and how many euros out there? i mean, it's a long running game, but they all come to an end at some point and i don't know when that's going to be. maria: you're right. we'll see how. stuart. we'll see you here. "varney & company" begins after mornings with maria. is there a scenario, mr. mayor, that donald trump comes out and starts telling us a little more specific about his plans in terms of policy? and about who he's going to hire? who is going to be in that cabinet? >> so, i think, of course, it's time for that, in the normal course of the campaign, that's
8:48 am
what you would do right after labor day. i mean, that's when people are paying attention and when you'd layout your policies. look, he's been more specific than her. i know his jobs program. he announced it during his speech. maria: and the tax plan, 15% corporate tax plan. >> i know his jobs program is lower the corporate tax rate to bring more money back into the united states. that's the best way to bring it back. lower taxes in general to put more money into the private economy so small businesses can hire people. and renegotiate some of the trade agreements that have taken jobs away from pennsylvania and ohio and the middle of the country. that's an economic program. no presidential candidate gets much more specific than that. i think he's been very specific on immigration. dagen: hillary clinton is specific to the point she's going to crack down on treatment of-- >> if you are consider their speeches. maria: on the website.
8:49 am
dagen: on the website. >> his speech contained ten specifics of what he's going to do. he'll go into more detail and how he's bringing jobs back and how he's going to deal with isis and give an indication, i believe he's in the same way that he did with the judges, about not, i'm going to appoint this one on this job and that one on this. i think what he'll do, he'll give indications these are the people i would look to. maria: will you be our next attorney general? >> well, i'm actually seeking-- i am seeking a job, secretary of golf. [laughter] i'm going to get the old nike clubs and i'm going to get at nike clubs because i think three years from now you can probably get five to one for them. >> can you beat mr. trump in a golf game? >> no, but my son can. maria: really, we want to hear more about that. [laughter] we'll be right back.

8:55 am
and i don't know, we're at the same time place right? >> yeah, i think we're in the same place. the bernie sanders people, a third indicate they're not voting for hillary clinton. in our case, our problem is not the grass roots, look at the money that trump raised. >> in july. >> just about the same as hillary did, he raised from small donors and she's raising it from the fat cats and donald trump is very strong with the grass roots. his problem is the establishment of the party. i think that hillary's got the opposite party. hillary is the establishment of the party is going to lie for her, cheat for her and stand with her, no matter what the director of the fbi says about how careless she was with national security secrets and when the new revelations come out from assange about the other lies she's told you're not going to see any democrats like representative kins nger jumping ship because they understand the importance of
