6:03 am
coming up retired four-star general and "fox news" military analyst jacking us with this former house speaker contributor newt gingrich and chairman in chief strategy officer wilbur ross stops by. kicking off at the battle of the economic plans in the state of michigan hillary clinton will present their plans today. donald trump presents his plan in detroit this week. clinton pattern for structure plan on the campaign trail. trouble a slender legislative record, take a listen. >> in the first 100 days of my administration we will make the biggest investment in new jobs, good-paying jobs since world war ii. now how are we going to do that coax? we will. >> she promised the world and went like this.
6:04 am
it went down and she got virtually no legislation passed. >> she couldn't get anything passed. was unbelievable. maria: i want to bring in jobs surrogate aaron and leopard we heard down this week. had he think it differs from what we will hear from hillary clinton? >> the difference is clinton is going to do is create a humongous deficit. donald trump is trying to help america and make changes and get away from the norm of brock about were hillary clinton pushes us further into debt. maria: she will be raising revenue that issues raising taxes. >> yes and if you look at a host of independent groups trump's tax plan in trump's infrastructure spending is expected to add to enjoy in dollars to the federal deficit not too chilly in dollars. i think because he lowered it to three brackets and took the highest trade to 33% which was a nuance it does take it down from
6:05 am
10 trillion. >> if we are going to talk about the deficit, republicans slammed democrats for adding to the deficit. why don't they care about donald trump's mouth? >> i don't think it's about the mathematical regard. all hillary clinton wants to do is increase the minimum wage. that does nothing for country. it doesn't create jobs. there's no possible way these numbers are adding up. >> we have forked from this thing for the last three months and no plan is perfect. here's what the plan does. number one it simplifies the tax code and number two we will reduce a moratorium on regulation which is super important to get the small business is growing again and last peace of this is super important for everybody. if you can get the revenue mix right you will ultimately reduce the deficit in the way you do
6:06 am
that is exactly what though clinton did. we think about where the democratic party is today. they have moved so far to the left with such aggressive governmental controls they are slowing down the growth of the economy. if we get the trump plan in place and we can grow it 4.5%, and grow as a nation we will solve a lot of problems. it's. maria: when you look at how far left the party has gone because of barack obama and bernie sanders. >> we are running a budget surplus at the end of this term. >> hillary clinton's plan is completely different from anything bill clinton did when he was in the white house through some of the things he's announcing today look a lot like bernie sanders plans for expanding social security. >> childcare for instance she talked about that sketch factor costa 10%. that's going to be a job killer.
6:07 am
she wants to take instead of what donald trump as saying which is give taxpayers a credit on childcare for the year that's economic growth she is saying let's have the government take care of it and that's worse in my opinion. >> trump does want to put the money in the hands of business owners. and the individual. hillary doesn't seem to be catching up to that. >> one of the points in hillary's plan and cheryl a. buno this issue wants to help small business. and understand how she's helping small businesses in his plan. have you seen anything that moves small-business? >> not unless you are preschool and you are running a universal preschool plan. >> it depends on the business. where she is talking about is more regulations and that is where donald trump has come out.
6:08 am
>> his pledge to stand by and defend obama regulations. >> she as i mentioned changing the corporate tax rates. >> president obama has given us an infrastructure plan that did not work. >> let's talk about what exit does work. we studied this and this is a bipartisan thing. you go over 20% of the gdp of the national budget level you have almost an octopus controlling the private sector and it constrains the growth in the private sector. we are at 24% right now for the federal government to guess what's happening? people were getting little to no grocer with the trump plan will do is get us back down to the 20% number and you will see explosive growth as a result of that and that will solve a lot of problems were talking about on this program and other programs which are particularly the global problem. if you get the united states to grow again and capacity which
6:09 am
the trump plan puts you in the will solve a lot of the worlds problems. >> i was struck to the number of people is that there is not a rough aspect of the hillary clinton plan. he was really striking because economic growth is the most important thing we are talking about right now in terms of creating jobs. >> maintaining the status quo something you don't see relate to growth. maria: the controversial jesse that the rallies, yesterday we talked about hillary clinton having the father the orlando shooting are right behind her and incredibly prominent place. now trump apparently is one of his rallies mark foley was there disgraced congressman. let's watch. >> and i know how many people, family members, loved ones and friends are still grieving and i want to -- i want them to know that we will be with you. we will be with you as you rebuild your lives, as you
6:10 am
rebuild hope for the future because we can't ever let that kind of hatred and violence to break the spirit, break the sole of anyplace in america. >> it's terrible when the father of the animal that killed the wonderful people in orlando sitting with a big smile on his face right behind hillary clinton. maria: i'm still scratching my head over what the strategy was in terms of having mr. mateen behind hillary and what is the response to the congressmen being behind all-time? >> hillary penton, no trouble. mr. foley was exonerated of any crimes. seddique mateen son murdered 49 people and said should be punished. a little difference.
6:11 am
>> i'm thinking of a saturday night live skit. see that this doesn't happen by accident. when you have such a prominent seat you have to get that prominent seat. it's not happenstance that you are sitting in front of the cameras so this is strategy that they said let me reach out to the muslim community and then they realize it's a horrible strategy? >> i don't know if they knew who he was. >> i just don't believe it. if you go to a clinton event they are very staged. there's a reason for every single person binder. maybe the strategy was this is a muslim man and we want to look diverse. >> there's no way she would have done that. >> what i don't like about the whole thing is it's distracting from what the issues are.
6:12 am
what's happening here is because you buhman street and secretary clinton have a failed national security policy and a failed economic policy we have to focus on personalities and issues like this. maria: she prides herself on her record as secretary of state and not everybody is as proud as she uses her record but it could be something there as well. a massive explosion at a maryland apartment building the left dozens injured including firefighters. more on the out by thread a climber captivating the nation as he scaled 21 stories at trump tower new york city yesterday. more on the climber and why he did it straight ahead. back in a minute. ♪ music

6:21 am
6:22 am
maria: allows generation of homeowners "the wall street journal" taking a closer look at why millions of america's a wreatg instead of owning. the chief economic correspondent , john good to see you. this morning's story homebuyer shortage threatens recovery. the market has been strong with the exception of the
6:23 am
middle-class buying homes. >> this is particularly the case for millennials. the young people burdened by a student debt and getting married later and what we are seeing is the homeownership. is we reported the story today is fallen to a 51 year low around 63%. some saying it could fall below 60%. let's remember homeownership 10 years ago was the american dream. right now about 200,000 to 300,000 fewer homes are being bought every year mostly by middle-class americans. maria: the peace also said home prices rose 83% at s1 hundred and 78 real estate market so prices are getting away from some folks. >> traces are getting away from some folks in the reason is builders are building. we had a boom in construction of apartments and condos but not
6:24 am
single-family homes and then the other part of this that we have to talk about is now its bring about the federal reserve interest-rate or very low and that ought to be spurring a lot of homebuying but a lot of the houses are cut out of the market because banks are reluctant to lend to anyone with any kind of scuffing on their credit record. if you look like you don't have a good track record and credit it's very hard to get a mortgage these days even though interest rates are very low. that hits the middle-class. maria: john if you look at the millennial fire because that seems to be a big problem. you need that younger buyer to basically spur sales and not the young person who's not coming into the market. they don't have a clear answer as to why. >> so there's this barbell effect is weighing on the market on one end you have the millennials who are coming out of college and one of the worst job market in the history of the country and burdened by a lot of
6:25 am
student debt getting married later so they are not going out and buying a home home and then you have the huge population of baby boomers which is downsizing into smaller places and condos so that's weighing on the market as well. maria: anthony do think this will impact the broader economy? >> at the end of the day housing ties everything together. john knows this from working with the fed predicted on get the housing market right you don't get the small business 60% of small businesses are tied to housing. think of our main streets, we have this sort of middle-class lowdown and housing very better economic growth. >> maria u. as of this will hurt the recovery i would say it r&d has. at typical recovery what happens is the fed lowers interest rates and you see a lot of interest sensitive ears moving forward so you see housing in d.c. car sales all going forward. what's happened is we have had a
6:26 am
boom in car sales but we have not had a boom in housing which is a bigger peace of this economy. not only in addition to everything that anthony mentioned a lot of people expect equity from their homes. the better tax till the neck or card so you don't have that going on. maria: that's a great point. john what are the ripple effects because as we talk about millennials so many burdens and feels like a weight on the shoulders is getting impossible to buy a home. they have student debt than they can find great jobs but homeownership is the key component of retirement saving so what does this to our economy years down the road? >> well you know i think that's certainly the case. you make a really good point about retirement savings. a lot of people have paid their mortgage every month and eventually they are paying, taking out equity in their home and building up wealth so you
6:27 am
don't have that form of wealth creation which again ways on consumer spending. the home-equity ways on consumer spending so this is a fundamental ingredient in american life is being transformed and then you know i think it's also affecting this election cycle. it's one of those factors, there are a lot of factors out there among the middle-class that are forming anger and resentment in the electorate and it has led to people getting behind people like don trump and bernie sanders you want a change. the disappointment in the housing market is part of that. maria: in fact one of hillary clinton's themes to recommend the plans i understand his free tuition. you mentioned the connection to the election. genre quickly before you go, tomorrow is going to be retail sales that will set the tone and we know the consumer has been one of the bright spots in the earnings in the sector have been been -- what do you expect in
6:28 am
retail sales tomorrow? >> the retail sales numbers had better be strong for you so many other sectors as we talked about housing. maria: corporations are not spending. >> is this investment has been a weak part of economy and stuff exports so when we are counting on consumer spending to keep this expansion going if we see it slowing down then that is a reason to worry. the fact that the stock market is making new highs and affect the employment. has come down leads me to believe we will see growth but don't expect consumers to be going gangbusters in this environment. maria: we will see with the numbers and that will set the tone for markets more. john thank you so much. later this morning quiet buyers looking to get into the market in terms of the housing market. at next a new survey shows two-thirds of americans felt threatened by isis. what the current administration can do to keep the country safe

6:32 am
august 11th, top stories at 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. hillary clinton has highlighted infrastructure spending and raising minimum wage. we will compare her plan to what we heard from donald trump this week in detroit. the nominees focusing on other key issue for voters, fighting terrorism. >> in many respects, you know, they honor president obama. isis is honoring president obama. he is the founder of isis. >> every single one of these incidents shows us that donald trump simply does not have the temperament to be president and commander in chief of the united states. so the stakes have never been higher. maria: all this as startling new polls show way of life is under threat. one is islamic terrorism.
6:33 am
we are taking a look at threat today. outrage over the price tag that the justice department dolled out to the country. we continue to see the market near record high as the dow, s&p all looking higher today. in europe mixed earnings that drive the action. the cac quarante in paris showing gains of three quarters and one percent. in asia mix there. champagne produceers with shortage will raise price of le. poor guy, we will bring you that story coming up.
6:34 am
donald trump slamming hillary clinton and foreign policy. >> in many respects, you know, they honor president obama. isis is honoring president obama. he is the founder of isis. he founded isis, and i would say the cofounder would be crooked hillary clinton. cofounder. crooked hillary clinton. maria: donald trump's comments coming as a university poll show 47% of registered voters feel the american way of life is under a great deal of threat. according to that same poll 61% of voters say the threat is from the islamic state. joining me right now is general, retired four-star general and fox news military analyst. general, good to see you.
6:35 am
the idea that so many people are feeling under threat because of the islamic state, this has truly hit home, what's your take away? >> well, i can certainly appreciate that and sympathize with it. frankly, i think what the american people see is an isis threat that is growing and a lot -- they get a lot of information coming out of them every day. the president of the united states and all the european presidents say we are going to destroy isis, we are going to defeat them, bring them to the justice system but what they actually see is isis has conducted this year alone in the last 12 months over 100 attacks outside of iraq and syria. they've expanded from nine countries last year, this is just isis to 24 countries this year. the american people get a sense that this is a growing threat and thfer, it may impact them. maria: general, what should be done? it has been a while now since we
6:36 am
started to talk about that threat? it's only gotten worse, what do you think the best course of action is for the u.s.? >> well, i think that's the other ping that's in the america's people scept mix, they don't see a strategy to defeat isis. we have to crush their safe haven. they have a safe haifn in syria, that should have been crushed last year. that would have taken away finance and economic sustainability, the ability to control operations, the ability to motivate and inspire others around the world to kill fellow people. think about that. here we are. they've been in the safe ha venn for four years and we have no plans to destroy it. none. maria: the plan should include the international community, but was know, general, that our middle eastern allies have told folks like john mccain, senator lindsey graham, we want to be part of the fight to take down isis but we can't do it with
6:37 am
assad in power in syria but russia is protecting him but the u.s. is not doing anything. is that critical to take care to take assad out? >> the arab coalition came to the united states said, we are going to deal with this but you have to lead. they have huge issues with this administration. i don't think they would ever trust this administration, even to see through a plan to destroy isis. it's going to take a new administration to deal with the arabs but they could be dealt with effectively to destroy isis. maria: what do you make of this report, general, the u.s. air force struggling to fill shortage of 700 fighter pilots by tend of the year. we have the u.s. involved in
6:38 am
three air wars and we are looking at shortage of fighter pilots. >> well, this thing is eposadic in terms of shortage of pilots. fire pilots is part of that story. we go all the way back to cosova in terms of air wars that these guys are dealing with, the other thing the nature of the war themselves, particularly war against isis, they spend more time flying circumstance unless the sky than bombing runs because of bureaucracy and nature of the fight itself. they're not going after facilities, they are going after fighters on the ground which is a tough tactor. we are flying more drones. flying drone is not like strapping on an f-22.
6:39 am
maria: right. i want to switch gears and russia and the u.s., and i know you do too a couple of years ago when the world we wanted to copy silicon valley, among those countries was russia, they created the kokovov and as a result of that peter is saying that the clinton camp -- the clinton camp and the clinton initiative basically created opportunities for companies to go in and -- and invest in this russian silicon valley but in doing so, they created an espionage window and basically they help moscow develop a silicon valley and drew american technology companies due to espionage. what do you think about that?
6:40 am
>> well, the fbi -- >> listen, putin is a thug and he's created -- he's the richest man in the world by literally robbing russia with billions of dollars and any -- any activity with russia we have to be very careful about what that is and certainly bring companies like google and microsoft and general electric, itself to work with them would certainly expose those companies and i think the companies themselves understand that. number two, we have the fbi's warning, number three putin is going to use his offensive cyber capability which is second only to the united states to exploit espionage information and also criminal activity. maria: yeah. >> half of russia's offensive cyber capability is criminal. maria: it's pretty extraordinary because the partnership itself
6:41 am
stems from president obama and the reset that secretary -- then secretary clinton wanted to do with russia. she was calling it a reset. the fbi issues extraordinary warning back in 2014 to the companies doing business with the koskovov foundation, the silicon valley of russia, could deal into espionage, crucial part to modernize russia's military. this fbi warning and they are calling an extraordinary warning back in 2014 is worth noting general. >> yeah, absolutely. putin takes this very seriously and the reality is he will continue to use that cyber offensive capability to exploit us. they are doing it on a daily basis and if we gave them something like that, i mean, it would be ridiculous because they would take so much advantage of it. >> that's really incredible. >> working with putin was well
6:42 am
intention, he has seduced two presidents, president bush and president obama, this guy is dead serious about expanding russia's influence in the world, he's interested in eastern europe, he's dead serious about advancing russia as a global power. maria: you're absolutely right. >> it was misguided to be frank about it. maria: gary, he was the richest man in the world because any transaction done in russia putin takes his take first and he's built up this massive war chess of money. good to see you, thank you so much. >> good talking to you, maria. maria: coming up a man who survived dramatic plane crash wins a million dollars in the lottery. the cost for baseball souvenir, a plate full of nachos to your face. back in a minute ♪

will make the biggest investment in new jobs, good-paying jobs since world war ii. >> she was a senator from new york and she made tremendous promises of what she was going to do for new york when she became senator and she won the race, she was a disaster. we lost jobs. maria: we will have the latest from the campaign trail coming up. a legal victory for twitter to report. battle over isis propaganda, why a judge says why the technology giant is not responsible for giving a voice to isis. we will follow the latest developments out of arkansas where one police officer was killed during traffic stop. what they're doing around the country to protect police officers. valient facing a criminal investigation, stock sinking 10% this morning. stock has lost value around

>> creamy or gummy in the middle. cheryl: nonl -- only in kroger if you dare to eat one. >> i will try one. maria: newt gringrich is with us and the host of varney&company, stuart. donald trump is in florida today campaigning for the battleground state, ouron blake berman. blake, good morning to you. blake: a beautiful summer morning in michigan. we are habit half an hour from downtown detroit, many suburbs here in detroit. hillary clinton will use the manufacturing company today as the backdrop to roll out her many economic proposals. the clinton campaign is telling
7:03 am
us this morning that this will be somewhat of a rehash from what she rolled out earlier this summer in kentucky in june. however, this will be be a defacto rebuttal to donald trump. here is what we can expect hillary clinton to talk about according to campaign this morning. a handful of topics among them. need for investments in job creation. plan for debt-free college for all. fair share initiatives as well, notably the buffet rule. millionaires to pay at least 30% effective tax rate. this, however, will also focus a whole lot of it this speech on donald trump. you can expect hillary clinton to try to portray trump in his economic speech from earlier this week as more trickled down economics that -- as they see
7:04 am
it. trump and his corporation and his friends' corporations as well. you also can expect hillary clinton to unveil a new term, that being the trump loophole, clinton will try to make the argument today in this speech that trump's tax plan gives him and his companies a back door tax break as she sees it through pass-through entities. we also can expect hillary clinton to focus on the flint water crisis from just down the road here trying to use trump's tough talk against regulations against him. as for trump, we have seen him out on the campaign trail in the last couple of days since his economic rollout. he has tried to make the argument, maria, that hillary clinton had the very chance as the united states senator to introduce and try to get through some of the policies that she's pushing now and as he puts it, she failed to do so then and will fail now. maria: i want to welcome a
7:05 am
fellow steve moore, steve, good to see you. >> hi, maria. maria: we talked about trump's plan. i want to talk about hillary's plan. she's talking about investing in good paying jobs and helping small business. do you think that's what we are going to hear today? >> i think she's going to say that. i don't know if she's going to be able to accomplish it. i love it. by the way, i love donald trump's attacks against hillary about what he said she was going to do to new york and we looked at the evidence after she became senator, specially up state new york devastated by manufacturing jobs. let's not make hillary make all of america like up state new york. i'm going to do all the things in the first hundred days. wait a minute, they have been in charge of the last 3,000 days, why haven't they put the job programs in place.
7:06 am
we have seen flat incomes. no pay raise for workers for ten years, job growth, if you look at the unemployment rate, 10 to 12%. i just think those have difficult hurdles for hillary to get over. she is the status quo. she was part of the obama administration and the results have been lousy. maria: anthony scaramucci we are looking at the tax foundation fiscal and we know that she wants to raise taxes on individuals and businesses but what she's trying to do is raise money, i guess, not to impact the deficit too significant. she's going to raise tax revenue by almost $500 billion. anthony: steve would also tell you that on a dynamic tax analysis because of slowdown in growth, she will only takes 91 billion, is that fair, stief? >> you got it. our plan when you look at the growth aspect, this is where we are going hit her. if we are growing at 1%, maria, if we get from 1% to 4% growth,
7:07 am
that 3% additional growth because you have so many people working, so much more corporate profits and fewer people on welfare, you reduce the deficit by about $5 trillion, growth is the way to, you know, balance this budget and one other quick thing, maria. she is in her plan, her tax rate on small businesses, we figure is very close to 50% for a lot of small businesses. maria: wow. >> the other 50, we are going hammer and say, we are going to create more jobs with the 15% than you are with the 50% tax. cheryl: what she's going to do is that the infrastructure plan is going to offset the particular tax rate on small businesses. $275billion, that's something that she's going to expect to really hammer on today. >> that sort of sounds like the shovel-ready projects that barack obama -- almost everything in that plan as i see
7:08 am
it, anthony, almost everything in there is what obama promised. tax increase for the rich. obama did that. minimum wage increases, we had three of those. infrastructure programs, we spent 8$00 billion under obama and infrastructure and where are the jobs? anthony: one thing that's missing is the transaction tax that she wants to put as relation of capital in the united states. every time a stock trade goes down, she wants that tax as well, that will further constrict the flow of capital and another negative impact on the economy. what's your reaction to that? >> i agree entirely with what you're saying, we want america to be the financial capital of the world. we want cities like new york city to be the place where business gets done and financial transactions happen. if we have this financial transaction tax, those transactions will move to london or tokyo or -- or beijing and other places. you're in that industry, you
7:09 am
know the devastating that tax would have. maria: the way they are marketing this is we are going to invest in good-paying jobs and help small business. it sounds great but then when you look at the details, it's raising taxes significantly on individuals as well as corporations and small businesses not going to see a break at all. i don't understand how this plan helps small business. >> i think one big question, though, is we have seen specially through primaries, voters, particularly democratic voters want redistribution of wealth. they want an economy that works for everyone. how does trump go out and explain that the policies don't work for voters. >> that's not a tough sell, actually. whatever voters are telling u. look at every poll, what are they concerned, their paychecks are not rising, they are worried about what's happening to their jobs and seeing jobs overseas,
7:10 am
it doesn't matter how many times we rescued the economy, most americans don't believe it. the labor department did revision and found wage growth has been slower, slower than they originally thought. maria: do you cut taxes on the -- the -- you know, lower end and -- or do you make it an environment where business has a favorable environment where they are encouraged to create jobs? cheryl: 15% which has gotten positive reaction from the business community. so she's going polar opposite, that's the rebuttal that we are going to hear from her today. the other thing that she's proposing, i can't wait to hear this afternoon, ensuring that workers are able to participate in company profits. what does that mean, steve? >> liberal bernie sanders voters. cheryl: i don't think she's -- i don't know.
7:11 am
>> that's kind of an interesting idea, actually. i would like to see a kind of worker capitalism. let's get workers invested in the companies they work for. i would like to see the details of that. i'm a big believer in this. back 10, 15 years ago when we try today allow individual workers to put social security money into owning companies, you can't possibly do that, it's too risky. maria: maybe she's referring to employees getting more by just raising their wages. >> i don't know. but i'm going to go back to the main point. the tax issue is so important -- it's not just taxes, maria, it's also regulations, you talk about this every week on the show. regulatory burden is more difficult for businesses. if you -- maria: yeah. >> you get businesses to be healthy and our line healthy businesses create healthy jobs and let's face it, hillary -- remember just about a year or two ago she said businesses don't create jobs, remember that
7:12 am
one? maria: don't let anybody tell you business creates jobs. at a campaign stop monday, steve, hillary slammed the make-up of trump's economic advisory council. listen to this. [laughter] >> he announced a few days ago that he's got a dozen economic advisers, let's see, he's got three wall street money managers and oil baron, a former chief economist, one to have big banks at the heart of the financial crisis, he's got six men named steves. [laughter] >> and, you know, they all care about the same thing he does, about, you know, how to avoid paying their fair share. maria: hey, i guess you're one of those steves. you got a shout-out. >> funny, we were going on a plane putting last-minute details, hey, steve -- we all turned around.
7:13 am
there were three steves on the plane. look, i am guilty of wanting to reduce my tax liability. i'm like most americans, do i whatever i can to pay as little tax as i can, so i'm guilty of that charge. maria: well, people want to see taxes go lower and they feel if they have more money in their pockets, they would actually spend it. that's the argument. do you give the power to the people or do you give the power to the governments. that's the argument here. good to see you. >> okay, thanks, maria. maria: big technology names are not responsible for raining in the spread. plus, paying for fugitives as million americans struggle, escaped fell ons live for free. the stunning report next ♪

are going to roll first time legislation is antacid disrupts the that market. >> good point. >> shelby. at this point, are there any government incentives to allow fred and fannie to operate privately very easy to controllable profitable does government want to allow them to operate independently? >> it doesn't appear so i mean it is a polarizing topic one of these issues that energies boat parties' base like tough talking in a mirror guys love to talk harsh talk about resolution g.o.p., freddie mac and fannie mae when it comes down to it no urgency no benefit to the federal government making as i mentioned 70 billion dollars thus far, in clipping coupons about 10 to 15 billion dollars a year, from the dividends they pay, so great up to polarizing no urgency to fix it. >> i what about rolling back regulations you look at donald trump for example promising to
7:55 am
roll back regulations repeal dodd-frank, what ripple effects do you expect from that, would that affect the housing market? because the regulatory environment is one of the issues. >> um-hmm, well i mean we to me that hillary unapologetically is orange county o he status us would whatever your point of view housing market recovered because or despite existing policies. i can tell you firsthand that as a small business owner somebody until the housing finance sector less regulation would be a welcome thing right now as i mentioned, the cost was 8,000 dollars to originate a mortgage, beyond the cost and all costs manifest in higher costs to borrowers, higher interest rates worse service whatnot these organizations are also under ab incredible amount of scrutiny from administration in terms of o he enforcement actions civil penalties if you had friendlier he regime administration not looking for litigation but more

partnership i can assure you you would have more fushl a credit more being a access to credit. >> hasn't lending vooirm gotten better last two to three years with regards to fannie and freddie mac i say that because that has been good you up until now this year we seem to be seeing cracks not a housing market, and that is a very new phenomena can you tell us what is going on? >> well, housing market you know obviously we mentioned certainly a local -- event, anything happening is going to be local we learned our lesson, that home prices don't increase or decrease on a national level leading up to housing crisis, so there is avariety of different sources at play what you are seeing certainly on the mortgage side, is that you are seeing that definitely seeing a little bit of on the margins credit easing when they juice government problems fannie mae freddie mac, fha hard lesson

8:03 am
>> so what do you think, the status of this race is right now we are looking at the polls earlier, newt, and some swing states, are showing that donald trump has lost ground after a couple tough weeks how would you characterize things. >> i think true probably a week ago i think in the last week uven for example, there was one point now i think in florida, four points in ohio -- and remember, she has spent i think 90 million dollars, in advertising, attacking trump he basically sent zero. so what you are seeing is a similar effort by jeed deeply on it trump and clinton campaign to try to drive him down far enough he can't recovery i think really going to fail, he is going to go into september as a very real contender, and i think the more that he finds his footing the more he focuses on message
8:04 am
more likely to beat hillary i think in end you see in all different papers that are reporting on corruption of the state department, that is vivid and clear, and unequivocal you are learning that the obama justice department turned down fbi request to investigate corruption just compounds the parole problem hillary talks about people ought to know words matter a woman lies about lying, and then the idea that she is going to try to tell the rest of us, the words matter, which she want be honest about any aspect of what she has done in the last five or six years, i think is astonishing. >> interesting that you mentioned fbi saying no, you koobt invest -- clinton you know investigate rather the clinic foundation the irs targeting conservatives you've got state department, pushing back own releasing information e-mails you've got the justice department loretta lynch meeting with bill clinton on plane privately yet is it resonating? you said all that money that
8:05 am
hillary clinton spent, it is working for her right? >> i mean -- >> it would be if election were august 10 or august 15 the problem she has got election is in -- starts in late september minnesota earliest voting runs through october, but in the end, the question is, when we get to labor day does knee not trump out the answer i think know trump is a very viable candidate he is so much better than she is, on media so much more aggressive as a candidate, that i think he he will permanently be in the race have a very realistic chancerin through september and october. >> does he need to be careful about quote casual comments what clinton campaign is using effectively you talk about every paper across the country this morning, they are breaking up the facts that making off the cuff comments does he seed to stop with
8:06 am
because yu rhetoric that might be hurting him in the general? >> look, he would be a better candidate if he were about 10% less spontaneous in areas that get him in trouble the truth is you know i look carefully what he said in that second amendment the other day such a total lie, to take that translate it as the elite media did four hours he immediately after it is plain a lie, what trump has to learn is if you are the conservative mrnl insurgent trying to change the media your mortal enemy if you give an opening they will lie but put you on defense eat up clock want to rope-a-dope they want to make sure that that campaign is not serious. if the campaign gets to be about serious issues hillary is going to lose very badly on the realities so bad. >> what about republican pleerdz abandoning him newt? this is an issue, because they are not doing anymore favors you got leaders coming out
8:07 am
saying they are not going to superdonald trump clinic campaign lached on to it launched together for america a group that aims to embrace gop defectors, she is moving on it. u. >> she should be that is smoornt her party on the other hand i would describe i want to as together for the corrupt establishment, the fact is, you saw this other day with national security people, trump is challenging the last 30 years of how we approached for example dealing byes almost a almost aic supremism a mud the point at war 15 years not winning the people ran that war for bush and people who ran that war for obama, are united in not wanting to have that debate so what they are going to say it is all trump's he he terrorismment nine killed won over 3400 dead in chicago since obama sworn in
8:08 am
more killed in chicago than you afghanistan and iraq combined, during the obama years, the democrats do nothing about it and you look item after item like this, and then, what they want to do is yell he temperament because they can't debate any series issues. >> shelby from the journal. >> hey newt i got a question for you we are talking about polls one of the reasons clinton up in swing states incredibly organized, she has the ability to advertise attack donald trump when he makes a comment people misinterpret, does donald trump show any signs of want to go advertise in swing states or have a ground game come november? >> sure, look first of all the republican national committee under chairman reince priebus has biggest ground game in republican history huge number field people across the country i think you are seeing an effort advent republican national committee and trump you're corrects trump i raised 82 million dollars last month.
8:09 am
he is putting money in the bank, for the post labor day campaign, she is public sector money on television right now. the election ain't right now watched friends running for election in senate as you pressed spent, for week after week, then sometime around september 15 all washed out, i think she is going to find the same thing here. >> you think he can come back you think he can come back then. >> oh, i think he will come back i tell everybody i think that the correct analogy to this year is harry truman in 1948 people thought he was so far behind at labor day gallup quit polling thought election was over, truman understood that if he was very aggressive and very vigorous told his version of the truth that he could beat dewey he couldn't beat him doing with a new york establishment doing but could beat doing what missouri wanted trump represents a pronounced you you insurgency in this country against

>> welcome back. happy thursday, i'm maria bartiromo. it's thursday, august 11th. 8:30 a.m. on the east coast. the candidates are focusing on issue number one, the economy. hillary clinton and donald trump wasted no time attacking one another's records. >> i am someone who believes that if we do infrastructure and we do clean we newable energy jobs we are going to be on the way to a 21st century economy. we can be the clean energy super power of the 21st century. >> hillary clinton will be worse than obama. you know it. she'll be worse. don't forget when she made the statement she's going to essentially put the mines and miners out of business, going to put them out of business and i guess she forgot about west virginia. maria: we're looking at that

put him on the roster? turning back for the race to the white house. donald trump on the attack and slamming hillary clinton's economic record. as she's set to unveil his tax plan in warren, michigan today. >> that's why i rolled out specific plans about how to create more jobs, to get incomes rising, in the first 100 days of my administration, we will make the biggest investment in new jobs, good paying jobs since world war ii. >> she's going to make a jobs speech or something tomorrow, a speech on the economy. look at what she did during her term as senator. she promised the world and it went like this. it went down. and she got virtually no legislation passed. maria: let's get to business now. wl roth and company chairman and strategy, wilbur roth. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. maria: from a business
8:33 am
standpoint, you've got to, obviously, create jobs and do a balance sheet. what plan do you think is better? >> well, i think hillary's plan, according to the nonpartisan tax foundation, would shrink the economy and cost 311,000 jobs. that's not from the trump campaign, that's from the tax foundation. second, she isn't dealing at all with the problem of bad imports that directly take jobs from america. she's not dealing with that. she hasn't met a trade deal that she didn't like and they've all been job destructive. so, what she's really trying to do is invent the fiction of infrastructure to patch up this broken system. the problem with infrastructure is, number one, there are no shovel-ready jobs. remember, obama giant infrastructure plan, shovel-ready jobs. did you ever see one of those shovel-ready jobs materialize. maria: no. i didn't. what will happen, the money
8:34 am
will get sucked up into other things. as to becoming a clean energy super power, that's an objection more-- oxymoronic term. it will maze the cost of energy and will cost the average american family $5,000 a year. what does she think that's going to do to consumer spending. maria: and the other thing is taxes. so she's raising taxes. i'm trying to figure out, anthony, scaramucci, where it is that the clinton plans helps small business. she wants to help small business and at the same time raising taxes on individual and business income. how does that help small business? >> it will make big businesses smaller, that's how she'll help small businesses. [laughter] >> and to wilbur's point, the smaller businesses are going to be taxed at around 50% because at the end of the day, it flows through the individual, maria and those taxes are just going up ridiculously. my question of wilbur, you and
8:35 am
i have studied these plans and you've been in business half a century. what are we missing communication as fellow republicans we should be winning this race 60-40 in my mind. what is it that we're missing? >> one of the things that we're missing is the fact is there's only one segment that will really pay more tax under the trump plan and that's people like me, who have carried interest because we're going to be taxed at the 33%. then, that's higher than the tax rate we have now. so, it's an interesting contrast that here you have the republican, who's going to effectively raise taxes to people like me, which is fine because i think that donald will spend the money wisely, i don't mind paying a little more in tax. whereas hillary is not dealing with that issue at all, except
8:36 am
by raising everybody's taxes. maria: right. shelby, what about that? >> i have a question about trade. trade is a flash point. we saw people with tpp signs at rn krchc and dnc, but trump sca fiscal republicans when he talks about taxes china, and tariffs. does he specifically know what he wants to renegotiate when it comes to nafta, does he have a backup plan for tpp? >> first of all, let's talk about the tpp and let's talk about the fact that there's already $2 trillion trade deficit with those countries that are in tpp without them getting the new tax advantage. >> third, there are plenty of loopholes in the tpp. for example, in automotive, the majority of the content of the car could come from outside the tpp countries, notably china, which is not the signatory, and
8:37 am
yet, be imported into mexico, assembled there, come into the u.s. free of mexican tax, free of u.s. tax. that's a weird idea of building a trade block when you have it so pourous you can let third parties benefit from it. >> look, i think that redoing trade deals is fine if america can get a better situation, but i think people are nervous about doing everything over from scratch all at once. whether that be a disruptive force in the economy if you redo nafta, if you redo china, redo the deal with mexico all at ounce or is he not proposing to do all of this. >> let's see what he says. the quote reports 40% tariff on china. maria: and he won't back from that, he never said that-- >> here is what he said in the trade speech, if it turns out that the chinese are found to have been manipulating their
8:38 am
currency by at much as 45% and aren't willing to negotiate, we may have to go as far as to impose a 45% tariff as a negotiating measure. maria: yeah. >> now is that a wild thing? no. it's simply explaining the kind of negotiating posture he'd begin to take. maria: i think that's smart, a smart idea. let's talk about infrastructure for a second. you said there are no shovel-ready jobs and you mentioned this is going to be the crux of the plan. >> i think we'll hear i'm going to stimulate the economy and shovel-ready projects. and we've heard this before and heard it from president obama and seems like more of the same. >> and taxes like the buffett rule, anyone with more than 5 million in income. >> a couple of things, there are no shovel-ready projects, never have been and never will be. with the new rules and regulations that obama has
8:39 am
included in hundreds of executive orders and such, it will take years before any shovel gets into the ground anyway. so, that's the number one problem. the number two problem, if you build a bridge to nowhere, you get the one-time shot of the jobs and then you get stuck with the cost of maintaining it for the rest of its life. so, again, it's an illusion. what's wrong with america is that the only thing that she's really been effectively importing is favors to foreigners in return for contributions to the clinton foundation. maria: do you think that's going to resonate with voters? because we talk about this a lot. i'm not-- i don't know if it's actually having an impact. it was having an impact. >> well, i think especially with these new revelations about e-mails and late night phone calls to people in the state department, how do you explain that? do normal citizens get to make a late night call to a high official in the state
8:40 am
department? no. >> or possibly the president of the united states? if she wins this election? i mean, it's an ongoing issue. it's know the something that's going away. maria: and there is an investigation underway, but you have to wonder when you get the results of it, a fbi investigation. >> how many investigations does it take before people conclude where there's smoke there's fire? is it 10, 20, 100 investigations? how many does it take before people catch onto the joke that there's something wrong going on there? she's the most investigated public official in the history of the united states. maria: it's quite extraordinary, actually. >> it's a wonder that she has the strength to do anything else. maria: well, it's good to see you. thanks for weighing in, important points you brought up. wilbur ross joining us. and is u.s. headed the way of europe? stuart varney on what voters need to know before they head to the polls.
