6:05 am
research, national poll shows the race is tightening in a four way race, hillary clinton leads donald trump by four points with 41% support, donald trump with 37% support, followed by gary johnson with 10% and jill stein with 4%. let's talk about these numbers. is this what republicans have been waiting for? >> it is a new donald trump. i think it is the same donald trump. he is filled with bravado but we saw a very honest side of a man who said some things that were intemperate. maria: a brutal primary season. >> tell me about it but thanks for reminding me. that is why i am sitting here. it was a brutal primary season. the tone he took last night, the apology and ever thought would happen but shows he was looking forward to the election.
6:06 am
i still think he will win. people are going to say has hillary clinton ever told the truth ever? can we trust her? do we want to put her in the white house? this race comes down to simple things that when people focus on that they like donald trump. >> so the polls even though we have a tightening race based on the pole we saw you think the polls are too early? >> i don't think the polls accurately reflect what people say because people don't tell a pollster they are voting for donald trump. they will say to me don't tell anybody i am voting for trump because they don't want to be called a bigot or racist or homophobic is enough of or the label of the day. the second thing, a lot of people only hear what the media has told them. wait until the debates, more people will watch that than the olympics. that will be epic. dagen: at the debates, i can't
6:07 am
wait, waiting with baited breath, every pollster on the right, conservative a, and on the left, democrat, told me to not start looking at the polls until labor day because people are away, they are on vacation but after labor day they start hunkering down and focusing on who is the right candidate. what was interesting, this is a scripted speech, and admission, how he has acted during the campaign, people assumed he was going to be full on trump, trump tnt and this is different. maybe the gut busting is done by the surrogates, and trump rises above. maybe this is a shift. >> on the campaign trail, you need a gun squad that does the
6:08 am
heavy outfitting. in a good political campaign you go after your opponents but you don't do it all personally, you let other people do it. take out some people that are good and love taking baseball bats. dagen: you are seeing that. the issue of hillary clinton's health, some people talking about that is dirty or hitting below the belt but it is early politics and the clintons wrote the rulebook. if you want to get tough and play nasty let your surrogates do it. >> does wall street focus on this as we approach the election? is this something the stock market reacts to? >> probably. wall street hasn't reacted yet but investors are. when i talk with investors the number one question is what will happen in the election, i don't know. >> if markets are figuring out that 15% corporate tax rate will materialize that would be a
6:09 am
positive. >> i don't think we should assume that. there is too much baggage associated with either candidate to make a clear distinction. the market is always as you know, is necessarily going to go up. the question is what economic policies after whoever is inaugurated. that is why the stock market reacts, not just an automatic uptick. >> you said it would be an adolescent reaction. if people in business vote for hillary clinton they are not adolescents, they are infants. they are still sucking the bottle. this is crazy. why vote for someone who will raise taxes, increase the inheritance tax, make it more difficult to do business? if you're in the investment community is not as painful but if you are a small business operator she will gut punch you. >> i am a small business operator and no matter who is
6:10 am
elected there will be enough divided legislative body that we are not living in a dictatorship, in the end i don't think of you vote for one candidate it means all their policies will be put in place, they are silly proposals. do we really think if hillary clinton is elected we are going to have massive tax increases automatically? we will have folks like you screaming all day long as a counterbalance. maria: in president obama's second term even though you had a divided government he was able to institute a lot of regulations and went around congress, dagan mcdowell said yesterday all the regulations he is coming out with, record numbers. dagen: more than 600 regulations handed down during his presidency and that is a record. we are talking economic impact well north of 3 quarters of $1
6:11 am
trillion. >> he wants to build on president obama's policies. the worst natural disaster since hurricane sandy, donald trump addressed last night, listen to this. >> we are one nation. when one state hurts we all hurt. we must all work together to lift each other up, working, building, restoring together. our prayers are with the families who lost loved ones and we send them our deepest condolences. maria: donald trump and his running mate mike pence will be there today. president obama is on vacation in martha's vineyard. mike huckabee, we are not seeing outrage in the mainstream media but when you look at those pictures and see what is going on you would expect some
6:12 am
leadership, president obama to go there. >> outraged for my neighbors to the south in louisiana. this is a devastating flood, floods are horrible, of all natural disasters they are some of the worst because it take so long to get over it. the fact that he has remained playing golf is a disgrace to the office of the presidency. there is a reason president and governors go to areas that are devastated by natural disasters, not that they can fix it, they can't pick up the splinter the tornado or receive the waters even though obama all the promised he could do that. here is why they go. when they go the cameras go. when the cameras go people know. it mobilizes resources and when that president or governor or mayor shows up, they see how devastating it is, they take those resources and marshaling, he has not shown up and it is disgraceful, it is dereliction of duty. bill clinton, this isn't about

politics, bill clinton was the best at showing up for things like this, he showed a level of compassion, he represents the heart of america. maria: do you think a little clinton will show up? >> i doubt it. now the donald trump has got it would look like me too. dagen: president obama preached the words matter. what matters more than words his actions. take a look at this tornado caught on camera. wildfires ripping through southern california. you could be hitching a ride from a robot if you are taking over from one us city, details on the driverless fleet coming up. back in a moment on "mornings with maria". ♪

6:22 am
maria: chaos in real. swimmers ryan lochte and james egan have been indicted by police, they falsely reported being robbed at gunpoint. the athletes vandalize the gas station, two other teammates being held in country but have
6:23 am
now been allowed to leave. joining us is criminal defense attorney misty mayer and sports agent and founder and partner of dle agency doug eldridge. what can we expect based on whether the judge expects these indictments? >> ryan lochte is back in the united states. it would be symbolic if anything because he won't get extradited back to brazil. there is a treaty in placing overrating specific crimes like rape, murder, won't happen. as far as the other swimmer in brazil, what we will probably see is some type of negotiation with prosecutors to pay a fine to get them out of the country. maria: pretty incredible that ryan lochte was the ringleader in all this but he got out sooner than anybody else. >> when you get back to the united states how do you see it?
6:24 am
let's talk about the loss of money. you have to believe ryan lochte would be poised to get millions in terms of the endorsement deal. is that dead? >> it is similar to when a fishing boat goes missing. over a time it transitions to an undercover mission. that is where we are. in terms of where it relates to sponsors and brand there is going to be damage because sponsors and brands on two levels, number one his performance and number 2 is perception, performance is how the athlete does on the course. perception is their reputation within the community which for the brand is a consumer base and that is where ryan lochte runs into problems. maria: one of the sponsors statement from speedoh,
6:25 am
following the situation, has a policy not to comment on ongoing legal investigations. contact the team for additional information. ryan lochte is endorsed by ralph lauren. how do you see this? sponsors have to speak out. dagen: you kind of knew you were getting a doofus who behaves badly. he has been busted for urinating in public, disorderly conduct, anyone who has watched 5 minutes of that horrific reality show he did knew what they were getting into. the people of brazil, an apology. all americans, for this oaf, this jerk. maria: we know this kind of stuff has gone on in brazil so we made the assumption they were telling the truth they were robbed. dagen: one of the security
6:26 am
guards, pulled a gun, according to some of the reports. they are acting like a stone cold moron. >> you could've taken an innocuous incident taking responsible for the vandalism and changed it to an international incident. this has gone far beyond what it needed to be but repercussions won't be strong on ryan lochte but we will see problems for him in the marketplace. he has had issues before, this is just another mark on that charge. >> he bleached more than his hair, he bleached his brain but he could get a deal with clorox out of this. here is what bleach did for me. there is a possibility. it felt horrible. i almost stopped watching the olympics because i didn't want
6:27 am
to see these kind of updates. everything was going well. gold metal, silver medals, bronze medals, gas station, urinating on the sideline. >> i would interject we have to put this in context. it is sentimental to paint with an overly broad brush. we are talking the us team of 550 athlete representing a country of 330 flag-waving americans, i count myself among them. i was fortunate to be in real with 7 clients are presenting our country and brought home a bronze. this might be a pr black eye for the time being but let's not let it overshadow the proud a compliment of this delegation. it is important to point out good people make bad decisions, that does not make you a bad person. i couldn't defend the actions of ryan lochte in this situation, i don't want to overly incriminate the likes of young guys like the one from washington dc, good
6:28 am
athlete, good student. maria: great point, you are right. dagen: simon manual, first black woman to win a swimming medal for the united states, delilah mohammed, let's just name all the ones with one goal for is, did with respect and honor. maria: good to see you both, thank you. hillary clinton playing the blame game, reports say she told the fbi, another secretary of state told her to keep her emails on a private server. more on that next. the fastest man in the world making history in rio, highlights from the track and field event in the real epic coming up, back in a moment. ♪ music

6:34 am
one lie after another, and getting worse with each passing day. >> this coming as "new york times" is reporting that hillary clinton told the fbi that colin powell revived her to maintain a private e-mail server details from fbi notes handed to congress this week joining me fred, he is a former cia analyst center for security policy, is under fellow good to see you. thank you so much for joining us. >> good to be here. maria: your takeaway an latest from you hillary she blames colin powell? >> i find it very unlikely secretary powell made such a recommendation, this e-mail server is one of the biggest aspects of the scandal it was an effort by hillary clinton to evaded federal record laws and put her work related e-mails beyond reach of congress and courts i don't think powell recommended that even if he did, she is an attorney she saw similar scandal when in senate, knew this was wrong. >> extraordinary when you look
6:35 am
how this has come out fbi, investigation, into this, they didn't record the interview with hillary clinton. i mean you being formerly cia, is that customary we've got. this is what she told fbi wasn't record it had interview that they did with hillary clinton. and there was no transcript. >> i think the whole investigation stinks, it looks like rules weren't followed looks like there are special rules when it comes to the investigation of a clinton. >> governor people are working on if some agencies are have become completely politicized. >> very obviously politicized i think with a fred was alluding to hillary is an attorney the fact a lot of people need to realize this when you are given a top security clearance fbi sits you down because i have had this prap when governor they sit you down put fear of god in you about what you can and cannot do with information that you receive. i know darned well she got that briefing probably had it
6:36 am
whether she was first lady foreheaven's sakes certain secretary of state how does she justify in any way just didn't know any better? that is not -- that is not plausible. >> that is right not plausible, and i mean, i got to -- just i mentioned a moment ago there was a scandal during bush years, of advisories evading federal record laws use private e-mail she was in senate remembers that scandal, she is probably one of the senators bashed the bush administration for doing that. maria: that is good point glad you you brought that up. >> and there is also the story the top story in the "the wall street journal" today clinton family is going to scale back the foundation, if she wins the election. and i just see the deep irony in that, that if it was a conflict of interest why used as a slush fund in a money laundering operation while secretary of state? and, she took an ethics pledge
6:37 am
secretary of state about how foundation was going to be handled when she was serving american people we saw how it was handled. >> -- not taking any more money my gosh they have shaken down every country on planet who is left to go after? >> they pretty much taken the kirby vacuum cleaner to pockets of ever donr that exists hundreds of millions of dollars given out all favors they can what is left. >> they could -- not going to accept from corporates not going to accept money from o foreign government, about michael, but the question remains if it was all fine, then why make the change now? >> what else are they going to do they are in a position right now they have huge criticism about what they have done in the past with governor just said, and certainly concerns about that, i mean at this point we can say, yes, of course, it should not have happened. maria: it happened the question what are you going to do forward the statement is not going to do it you going forward as good as pure from
6:38 am
the start? >> obviously not. >> voters -- >> the voters will oi will go down in history will -- in fact write this legacy. fred how do you see it. >> my question why is foundation taking donations now? what o foreign kinds what foreign companies are contributing money to a presidential candidate to this foundation? right now? to influence her future administration, the foundation shut down immediately. >> donald trump expressed doubts over intelligence community and you agree, and newly published op-ed warn trouble ahead for donald trump if he wins tell us about that op-ed what challenges trump faces. >> well, i said in a "national review" piece yesterday that mr. trump basically has processed concerns about intelligent community a number said he should not get a briefing because he can't be trusted, but they said nothing about hillary clinton who
6:39 am
actually violated security laws regulations. but i also wrote about that within intelligence community goes back many years during bush administration, it was so bad in 2004, that the wrooej ran an editorial cia insurgency efforts to undermine mr. bush's campaign. >> you can't call out donald trump question whether or not he is going to keep this information secure, and not mentioned what hillary clinton has already done. >> itching that is right, and, you know, trump is a duly elected candidate of a major political party not the place of intelligence officers say i am not going to brief him. they are second guessing people who elected him he might be president, the purpose of this briefing to prepare him in case he wins the election. >> fred great to see you thanks so much weighing in, coming um up next a shipwreck

7:04 am
come out say look it was a brutal season -- i insulted people sometimes you say things you don't mean, but i regret it, it was an apology even though saying never apologize for anything probably is resonating. >> yeah, i think so it clearly has a woman's touch on there i think kellyanne conway must be a very good advisor he must be listening to her something people said he couldn't do listen, to his advisors has fingerprints all over it is that what it dagen? kellyanne conway. >> probably some cooks in there, other than kellyanne i get the sensation that is where they are going with this, where trump has got to kind of elevate himself, and then as we were talking about, you are going to have to let the tough stuff happen with surrogates. >> what an interesting day of
7:05 am
contrasts hillary clinton was blaming colin powell forestes the contrast one says it i me the other one says it has never been me it has never been my fault. let's hope it stays that way, if you are a donald trump supporter. >> this is really important, because hillary clinton did say, that colin powell told her use private e-mail the fact is not about having a private e-mail it is about having a private over very so you control who see what those with people's information. . rachel so that is number one, number two is she had said, that this started her that -- she had this dinner with colin powell at the beginning of her tenure as secretary of state. we know huma abedin told us she set up private server before she was secretary of state. >> rachel. >> i mean listen she lies about her lies that is one of the reasons she wouvent have a press conference if you are off-the-cuff speaking, and having to keep track of all lies every time in front of a camera she trips herself up
7:06 am
more and more and more we get highlights, i am sure will come out more ads from the donald trump campaign. and his -- and his -- the superpacks showing how she lies again and again we see this, the situation, i am a mom i look at this situation, with swimmers, in -- in brazil and i go, gosh we have a lying problem in our country. and i think people are tired of it. they want somebody that says i may not be politically correct but i tell the truth if she wants her campaign on track has to take a page out of what donald trump did yesterday leveling with people. >> i think a good point we have been talking a long time about donald trump having to do so-called reset or pivot whatever you might want to say. i don't know -- it seems to me and i don't -- exactly recall
7:07 am
it seems to me some point hillary said -- secretary clinton had said, that she reregretted at it private e-mail server it doesn't really sound familiar to me when i say it out allowed seems to me there has to be that recognition for sense of being genuine i think as you put it being humble i was talking off camera both my kids bernie supporters the thing they liked about bernie was he -- he felt or they felt he was a genuine person. >> honest felt he was honest. >> i think authenticity more important than any other quality in a political candidate people don't have to agree with you, they just like you to agree with yourself like for you to have some sense what comes out of your mouth is what really is there, rather than something that has been carefully programmed by a whole room full of consultants embedded into your headed. >> rachel can speak to this hillary clinton theme of her candidacy her campaign, is i am an advocate of women and
7:08 am
children, this goes back to thank you know, the 70s if you will, and the more we find out she is advocate for herself person enrich plenty. >> i think one of the most effective lines he had look i've got skin in the game i put my own money -- and i don't owe anyone anything, and on the other hand, you have another candidate by contrast complains that you know, they had no money when they came out of the white house every time they get another job, in government come out richer richer, so i think, i think that he made some really good points and i tell you, the way he spoke to he african-americans last night if he starts speaking as -- in the same way, i think he may have an opportunity here to turn some things around he may not be able to get, you know, the high marks that george

7:10 am
genuine isn't that may be a reflection of a genuine sense towards latino community? >> you know, i think some of the things that he said are going to be really hard for him to back attract on, and to change people's minds on people deep hurt by some things said repeatedly played over and over again earnings per share hispanic media has a lot of work to do you are sitting next to a governor, by the way, who had been very effective speaking to minority communities about things they really care about which are communicates entrepreneurship jobs school choice governor huckabee can tell you things that resonate with african-americans and also hispanics if i was advising i would say caulk about economy jobs use the fact that you were a very successful bury

7:51 am
that comes from the wood, so this -- this right here, maria, is about 10-$12,000 and then there's a ton of kinds of things, small ware so we have to have scales to measure the stakes, knife sharpeners. maria: this is all the cost to operate. the wood down here. it's been soaking in water and you put it there. >> to give oak-wood flavor to the steak. ribs or what have you. maria: no people realize the idea. when you're a small business owner is small but the cost of operating the business is one thing and then you have minimum wage, going up, things like obamacare.

7:53 am
managers. a manager in our system makes a minimum of $50,000 a year. so if i use 40 restaurants, one manager per restaurant is $2 million. unfortunately, unfortunately the first of this year the government in wisdom also said that all of our servers which is two-thirds of labor force. 5-0. minimum wage went from $5 to $7 and 50 cents. 5,000 an hour it costs us. an hour. and so what are we doing? we are looking at managers. we are looking at technology, i always say the government is technology's best friend because it pushes every industry. not just ourselves, every industry towards technology because what can you do that technology doesn't get vacation, technology doesn't take time off

maria: welcome back, good friday morning, everybody. it is friday august 19th. top stories right now 8:00 a.m. on the east coast. donald trump pivot following a shake-up, expressing remorse for some things he said in the campaign trail. >> sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong thing and believe it or not, i regret it and i do regret it particularly where it may have caused personal pain.
7:59 am
too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues. maria: meanwhile outrage over the $400 million sent to iran. why the administration refuses to cause it ransom. the payment was, in fact, contingent on the release of american prisoners. police indict swimmer ryan lochte for falsely reporting robbery. two of the accused landing in the states. there they are moments ago. a fourth swimmer remains in the country. hillary clinton says she was just doing what she was told to do, why she is blaming former secretary of state colin powell for her e-mail scandal. shocking new video this morning, the scary moment after a bullet nearly hit the bus passenger in oregon. we will bring you this story. and good news from best buy customers, the mega deals the --

8:01 am
dagen: as always. >> i learned about shrimp from dagen. dagen: you're a preacher, i'm glad i didn't offend you. >> you were funny. maria: funny, interesting. donald trump is reaffirming his plan to overhaul american trade agreements as part of economic agenda. he said it in his speech last night. watch. >> on trade we are going renegotiate nafta to make it better and if they don't agree, we will withdraw. stand up to china on our terrible trade agreements and protect every last american job. hillary clinton has supported all of the major trade deals that have stripped this country of its jobs and its wealth. maria: joining me right now to
8:02 am
weigh in on the economic trail is former reagan economic adviser art. >> thank you, maria. maria: you and i have spoken about the tax plan and you know how i feel about the 15% plan that donald trump is talking about, it's a big deal and the markets are going to react if, in fact, they believe it. i want to talk about trade here. this is one area that's controversial. if donald trump redoes nafta, the deals with china, all the trade deals isn't that going to be a disruption than, in fact, a movement toward economic growth? >> well, it depends on how he does them, maria. if he gets all the protectionist measures, no, it could be very, very good. if he's done and withdraws and makes it more perfectionism, it will be good for the world. free trade is the answer. unfortunately japan and china and other countries have put in into those agreement that is should be removed. if that's what he's going to do,
8:03 am
it's great. if he's not, if he's going to go towards protectionism, that's a big mistake. remember, trade has nothing to do with the jobs. trade has to do with consumption and increasing the value of income. maria: trade has nothing to do with jobs? >> nothing. maria: it's okay to be poopooing on nafta? >> of course, we want to do that. if you want to use this as excuse to put protection measures, that's a killer. >> what's wrong with increasing the tax rate for individuals making more than $5 million? >> because they won't work. >> why not? >> you're going to spend 50% of your time reducing taxes, it's as simple as that. that's where the efforts go and that's where the profits go. that's not what you want these people to do. you want them to pay allow tax.
8:04 am
>> if we go to a 15% corporate tax rate, let's say they go down, great news, right. >> wonderful. >> if they go down, can't you then have people making more than a certain threshold 5 million, whatever number you happen to choose unless they are not middle class, wouldn't that be a reasonable sort of offset? >> what we know from the data is whenever we raised taxes on the highest income easterners, revenues and shares of gdp go down and the economy does poorly. that's what we know. every time we low tax rates on the top 1% income earners, top from that 1%, shares of gdp goes up and the economy does well. that's just the simple fact. maria: you're talking about 61%. you're okay with that -- 5 million. >> which part? >> 61% of your income is going to the government. 44% on a federal level and
8:05 am
another 10% state, that's 61%. >> nobody pays 61%. >> that's what i'm saying. maria: that's not true. look at hillary clinton. she has eight brackets. you're paying federal level, you will pay another 10% on state and another 7% on city and obama. i don't understand. you're saying hedge fund managers. >> if you're making $10 million and you pay 5% you will try to get tax rate, you are going to have business expenditures, you're going to invest in business and have fantastic corporate tax rate of 15%. maria: all the loopholes are going away, michael. >> i don't think the loopholes are going away. you made a comment here that's really important and i actually kind of surprised maria if i read her body language
8:06 am
correctly, the trade is not a job's killer. so this is being said on the campaign trail all of the time. so it's going to be said somewhere today on the campaign trail so tell us what you mean by that. >> it allows people to trade with goods and services, that's called the consumption gains from trade. what it also does is allow to redirect the composition of our production such that we get more efficient worldwide production. we produce some things better than foreigners and some things foreigners produce better than we do. they and we will be foolish if we didn't sell those products that make better than they do and it's a win-win situation for everyone. it's not about jobs. it's about allocating income and consumption. maria: governor. >> one of the things people
8:07 am
don't understand that we are spending $500 billion a year on tax compliance, doesn't produce a darn thing, a bunch of paperwork, isn't that why -- isn't that why it's so important to get a simplified tax code? >> exactly. john childs and i did a paper together and four years ago or so which we looked at the actual out out-of-pocket compliance costs, 82 cents from every dollar you pay, that's an enormous wedge driven from the taxpayer pays and what the government actually receives and doesn't account for all of the insufficiencies like changing portfolio. dagen: donald trump's tax code is simpler. >> could be. dagen: let's just clean it up
8:08 am
altogether. >> 13% across the board from the first dollar to the last dollar in both personal and in business taxes. you can match all federal revenues of full employment with 12% and this economy will go through -- no other taxes, no debt taxes, capital gain tax, no personal income, no payroll income taxes, no medicare, medicaid, no tariffs, all of that stuff gone with two-flat rates with taxes and this economy will be selling cars in central china. maria: that's not what we are talking about. this is the only deduction? dagen: keep mortgage interest reduction and keeps them -- so some -- >> i believe so. we should have the least amount of deductions possible including child care and all of the other deductions. you get to lower the rate where
8:09 am
it comes to creating jobs and employment. maria: 15% corporate tax rate, isn't this one of the areas that you really don't see a lot of renew going to treasury, right, because that's where you see businesses actually taking advantage and trying to get the best -- not take advantage but capitalizing on what they can and getting the best -- the business tax is the lowest amount of revenue going to treasury. >> we have the highest corporate tax in the world, for sure, we have the fourth lowest revenues out of 32 countries. maria: exactly. >> there's a curve that shows that relationship and it's just silly. germany is the same way. they have low revenues and high taxes. if we lower tax rate to 15%, revenues will increase dramatically from the corporate tax. maria: the question keeps coming up, how do you pay for it? how do you pay for it, art? how are you going to pay for cutting taxes to everybody? >> the pay he's going to pay for it honestly is bring so many jobs back and so much investment
8:10 am
back to the u.s. that they'll be so much economic activity, less lawyers, less accountants that will have much larger revenues as a result of lower corporate tax rate, period. >> don't you think it's lost in a lot of people that the reason that this is powerful is that if you create a job it's not only that people who have a job spend money but they also aren't on the government -- >> exactly. >> they're not having to put in that. it's a double-double whammy. >> all the lawyer costs, all the 32 cents. maria: putting aside the fairness that 61% is not fair, i'm just wondering what this is going to mean for job creation. let's put the fairness to a side for a moment, if you see small businesses coming under that 61% tax rate, what is that going to do in terms of job creation and economic growth?
8:11 am
>> it's going to kill it. maria: yeah. >> we tax people who smoke to get them to stop smoking. we tax speeders in order to get them to stop speeding. why would you want to raise taxes on income who eastern income or why would you want to raise taxes on businesses that make wonderful products at low cost and have lots of profits. this doesn't make any sense, maria. maria: business leaders tell us all of the time. we spoke with 1-800-flowers.com, he's going to be on wall street this weekend. >> for the last couple of years when you had gridlock we are struggling get the 2% gross, if you put it in contrast with the rest of the world, that's pretty good. if we had a little less handcuffs on us, we could see the economy growing 4% and that's without any great change
8:12 am
in fiscal policies. maria: michael it's not just the tax system but the regulatory issues when it comes to economic plans that we were looking at. >> i'm a small business owner, i'm crossing over the 50 employee threshold. maria: get ready for obama. >> provide medical care, always have, dental, vision, hsa, the whole thing, but -- but for small businesses it's really problematic. the regulation is really a huge, huge deal. and i'm from california, you think it's bad in the united states, you should come to california. it's a whole other country. maria: what regulation needs to be reversed? >> you're talking to me, maria? maria: yes. >> obamacare. i was talking with george yesterday and his idea of health
8:13 am
savings account replacing obamacare makes all the sense in the world to use free market solutions. what we are going -- doing now is reduction in taxes. maria: is obamacare -- dagen: a train that has left the station, art. i don't know how you throw it in reverse at this point because the train keeps rolling. it's just going to be more and more tweaks out of washington trying to somehow fix it like raising how much the penalty on people who don't buy insurance or trying to crack down on them. i don't see -- i just see it's a train head to go single payer. >> 76 and having been in the the game for a long time trains have been stopped an put back in stations. they really can. this obamacare is a serious
8:14 am
problem that will cause a lot of damage the u.s. economy over a lot of years if we don't stop it. maria: we are looking at 1 and a half 2% growth in this economy, we will see how much more and what happens next. always a great pleasure. >> thank you very much, maria. maria more check out the shocking moment, a bullet inches away from a teenager's face. astronauts taking a walk in space this morning. we are watching that live at the international space station and we are bringing it to you, back in a minute.

xfinity. the future of awesome. maria: police are recommend to go indict u.s. swimmers ryan lochte and james, authorities say they falsely report being robbed after they vandalized the gas station where they were at. jared: criminal justice, we always ask, did the punishment fit the crime? james was released after he paid 35,000 reals. nearly 11 grand. it's not payment for a fine but rather a donation. under brazilian law a donation can be made to avoid criminal prosecution for minor offenses.
8:24 am
he's free to return to the united states which is exactly where fellow swimmers where they are this morning. both bence landed in american soil. a news conference yesterday afternoon brazilian police say this ryan and three other men had not been held at gunpoint, despite images from surveillance video that may suggest the four men did have the sight of a weapon pointed in their direction. now the police said the man vandalized the bathroom at the gas station and they were questioned by armed guards before they paid for the damage and left. again, jimmy payment of nearly $11,000 was a donation. we don't know what he avoided being charged with. we also don't know what this means for ryan lochte who avoided being questioned. the ugly american, liar, liar,
8:25 am
speedo on fire. could ryan lochte's endorsement go up in flames. speedo is a sponsor of ryan, speedo is following the situation and has a policy not to comment on ongoing legal investigations. we suggest you contact his team for additional information. and you know speedo is not the only one that endorses ryan, he was always endorsed by air weeve as well as polo ralph lauren. the ugly american, this is today, the ugly american. this was monday's new york post. lochte unloaded, oo impic swimmer ryan robbed at gunpoint. a lot of the americans, i think, are booing this guy because he made us look bad. maria: earlier dagen and apologized to brazil basically
8:26 am
saying, okay, we fell for it, we did. it wasn't true and so, you know, liar, liar, speedo on fire. dagen: i thought i was under the assumption -- he has a history of being a duffus, urinating in public. maria: the tv show. dagen: i thought that he had been robbed in some way. i didn't think -- >> we still don't know. they are down there and they are drunk. they say that they are drunk. we all have been around drunk guys around that age. if someone points gun at you and says, give me money, you can make the case that's robbed. dagen: they did pull a gun to constrain and restrain the athletes because lochte was angry but a gun was involved.
8:27 am
>> his excuse is skimpier than his speedo. the fact that he did wrong, he needs to fess up, it's an embarrassment to the u.s. after a wonderful performance for all the u.s. teams with a record-breaking gold medal count. it's a sad way for us -- >> 100 medals now. >> we don't need a pivot, we need him to say sorry and move on. maria: humility, guys. >> would you go to rio today after everything we have seen and if your kid came home and said, hey, mom and dad we are thinking about going to rio for the spring break, what do you say? >> don't stop in a gas station to go to the bedroom and don't break mirrors and sandwich signs and behave yourself, nothing good happens after midnight. dagen: our medal count just topped 100, by the way. a shout-out to simone biles.
8:28 am
>> that's the bigger story. dagen: they didn't want to let black people swim in them. all the incredible women. this is a story of the ladies, i think, the american ladies coming out of rio. maria: they are super stars, the headlines have hijacked. >> exactly. maria: the twists and turns to in the race to the white house. one giant leap for the future of space travel. we are watching the space walk this morning that's paving the way. stay with us

8:32 am
will absolutely win and we will win soon. maria: outrage over the $400 million in cash sent to iran. why the administration is finally admitting the payment was contingent on the release of american prisoners. back on august 4th, president obama certainly denied the payments were ransom. >> this wasn't some nefarious deal. we do not pay ransom, we didn't here and we won't in the future. maria: the president also underfire this morning over his response to the devastating floods in louisiana. why he has remained on vacation in martha's vineyard despite at least 13 people being killed by that devastation. hillary clinton says she was just doing what she was told. why she blames secretary of state colin powell for her e-mail scandal. happy and university, google ipo. the search giant's amount at 85

8:34 am
it may have caused personal pain. too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues. maria: is it too little too late or will the latest pivot bring donald trump new supporters. house speaker and fox contributor, newt gingrich. mr. speaker, good to see you. is it a pivot for donald trump. is it your advice? >> i don't know about that, but he's been pivoting all week. if you look the a the tone of his terrorism speech, and inner city law and order speech on tuesday, the speech wednesday, the speech thursday, his tone all week has been reassuring, it's been calmer, it's working off of teleprompters. and i think that this is a very smart guy and he clearly was doing some things that weren't working. he took a deep breath and i think we're now seeing sort of
8:35 am
a new plateau of how trump operates. est of hink that he'll probably the campaign. and frankly, bringing in kelly anne conway and steve ban nonare huge assets in moving to this kind of campaign. so i feel pretty good where he's at right now. maria: we know that later today he'll be speaking with the hispanic community in new york. what does he need to say to some of the groups, the hispanic community, black community, women, important that he needs their vote. what you r speaking from his speech to the hispanic community? >> in one sense, in every case the message has to be the same, which is i care about you, i understand your lives, i know what you're worried about, i want to be helpful to you. people need to know that you care before they care that you know. that's part of it. in the case of the african-american community, his speech in milwaukee was historic.
8:36 am
it's the first republican in modern times going straight at liberal bureaucracies and liberal unions have ruined lives for millions of poor people and trapped them in places of tremendous danger and i think trump continues that, he's going to get a surprising share of the african-american vote by election day. i think with the latino community he has to emphasize, one, if you're here legally i'm totally for you, you have every right to be here, i hire legal immigrants, i'm married to a legal immigrant, my mother was a legal immigrant. i'm for immigrants here legally. i'm for your having a better job and your child an education and more take home pay and you being safe. those are powerful and once they accept that he's not anti-hispanic, he is an anti-illegality. and some will give him a second look. maria: dagen. dagen: newt, it's dagen. >> how are you.
8:37 am
dagen: what is he going to do winning the critical republican vote? he needs to get to 90% or more of the republican vote. >> that will happen. dagen: tell me why then? and focusing on, to, that path to victory would be through the rust belt, michigan, wisconsin, ohio and pennsylvania, focusing on securing and even building that vote. >> well, remember, first of all, that the tone he set this week, i've got a close friend, very, very smart former congressman write me and say he had listened to the north carolina speech in the car and that frankly, it was the first time donald trump really resonated with him. i think as people realize that trump is getting more disciplined, more focused, more issue oriented, a lot of republicans are going to come home very rapidly. second, remember, you talk about the rust belt, but remember, the second largest somali american population in the united states is in columbus, ohio. there's a very substantial african-american community in
8:38 am
cincinnati and latinos across the state of ohio. if you're competitive in the rust belt it's more than organizing white males, it's bringing together a larger coalition, and the general election donald trump who understands has one of the greatest marketers of our generation, he has to reach out to millions of americans who would not normally be republican and he's not asking them to be republican. he's asking them to be trump americans and his first most powerful pitch frankly is in the black community where the problems are so enormous, obama has failed so miserably and people are physically threatened. you realize in chicago about 3500 americans have been killed since barack obama became president. more than died in iraq and in afghanistan combined. maria: wow. >> that's a community who needs to leader with the guts to say let's do things differently and i think he'll get a surprisingly large share of the black vote by election. >> mr. speaker, donald trump proved he could get a lot of
8:39 am
folks that republicans don't typically and people coming over voting republican for the first time. how does he go back and get back some of the never-trump republicans. they make me mad. i can't believe anyone who says they're republican would think it's okay to help hillary clinton be president. how do we get those folks back, including the ones who personally signed an agreement when they ran for president and said that they would support the nominee. >> like you did. >> like i did? >> well, governor, i have to call you mike, to heck with this stuff. we're such good friends. listen, you know that there are two different things going on here. one is, i think, legitimate. if you're bill crystal and you've been for every losing war that we've fought and losing more would be good you ought to be for hillary clinton and donald trump is not your candidate. i don't object to that, these are people with honest ideological differences because
8:40 am
they see the world differently. but folks out here looking for a perfection test, it's donald trump or perfection, particularly if they're house and senate members, you don't wonder if they need their heads examined for this reason. if hillary clinton wins, they've got four more years of being the opposition party, four more years of executive orders, four more years of a president who constantly outmaneuvers them. with trump they'll get 60, 70, 80% of what they want in a problem solving way. no republican in the house and senate should be confused about the future. a future with hillary clinton is not only unacceptable to guys like you and me because she's so radical and corrupt and so dishonest, but also, it ought to be unacceptable to them because it puts them in permanent opposition and they get four more frustrating years. maria: do you think he's going to be able to roll back the iran deal? here we are all morning talking about the fact that now the obama administration is admitting, yes, the $400 million was contingent on the american hostages coming home.
8:41 am
>> the fact is the president lied because the president lies a lot. this president's spokesperson lies and secretary of state lies, and explains why hillary clinton lies so much, and. >> i want to point out quickly something you pointed out, maria, remaining 1.3 billion has been paid to iran. it was paid. and they confirmed that they had paid it, but they won't say how. maria: newt, the question is-- >> remember, remember there's still another $150 billion. maria: do people understand when the next tranche is due to iran. >> no. maria: because congress was surprised with the $400 million. nobody knew that this cash was going there when it was going there. >> this is-- the obama-clinton model of the world spends your money propping up our enemies while undermining our allies, it's the weirdest foreign policy in
tv-commercial
8:42 am
american history and we just saw, again, they cannot sustain it honestly in public so they have to lie about it over and over and over. maria: newt, good to see you. >> good to be with you. maria: newt gingrich there. donald trump is headed to louisiana and one notable person is absent. and stuart varney has that. and what is in the retailers future. back in a moment.

and headed to louisiana, donald trump is going while the president is on vacation. not good optics. stuart: donald trump is on the way to louisiana and speak to the families of those people flooded out. no cameras, by the way. when is the last time a politician walked away from a photo op like that? meanwhile, president obama, he's not going down there. despite the editor of the-- of a newspaper in baton rouge saying come on down, mr. president, we're hurting down here. he's not going, he's still golfing. and hillary clinton, i've been told that she is resting today and resting tomorrow. now, i think this is turnaround week in the trump campaign and what's going on in louisiana typifies this whole turn around. what say you? don: well, i think that that speech last night certainly looked like he is beginning to-- i mean, people want to see that humility, stuart, do you think it resonated? >> yes, i do. i talked to people most of them are conservative and most are trump supporters and the speech last night is exactly what they wanted to see.
8:48 am
on message, on point, no outrageous comments. a slightly different tone and an apology. we're hearing today that maybe mr. trump will reach out to the khan family, the goldstar family, maybe he'll reach out to them. this is a very different trump. and i notice, maria, that the hillary's lead in the three-most recent polls is narrowing quite sharply so. i think this is turnaround week. maria: it's turnaround week and it's been a tough couple weeks for trump, we'll see how it plays out. we'll see you in 12 minutes. stuart: you got it. maria: "varney & company" follows mornings with maria in ten minutes. these astronauts are putting us one step closer to vacation in space. how this could change the future of space travel. back in a moment.

♪ this is ground control to major tom ♪ ♪ >> welcome back, you're looking at pictures of a space walk happening outside the international space station moments ago. astronaut rubens and williams are installing a docking adapter that will allow bowing and spacex for a crew to the station. ilene collins, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for asking me to be here. maria: you were the first woman ever to command a space shuttle mission. what do you think today means for the future of space travel? >> i'm excited about today. this docking adapter is going to allow us to go from the
8:53 am
shuttle era to commercial crew era. it's similar to where the space shuttle was, we'll come up in smaller spacecraft and nasa will launch from the united states and we won't have to go to russia to get our astronauts to the space station, but this'll be launching out of florida on spacex's spacecraft and boeing spacecraft. we think a year and a half to two years. we don't have the exact dates, but it will be a huge step from our space program, going from everything operated from nasa to now operating with the commercial space industry. so it's a big deal. maria: we've got one of your biggest fans here in the studio, governor mike huckabee. >> colonel, i've met a lot of politicians, come a dime a dozen. astronauts are a rare breed and a special hero. i'm delighted we're not going to be hiking on russian space ships. tell me, how do we get americans to understand one of
8:54 am
the best returns on investments the united states government ever made was our space program and all the things that came from that were incredibly valuable? are we ever going to be able to go back to where we have not just private sector space exploration, but a serious endeavor on the part of the united states government? >> well, i think you hit the strategic part of space flight there. there are so many things to gain, measurable, technology, for example, but things that are not that measurable, more strategic, like inspiring young people to choose careers in math, science and engineers. space flight, that's like "star wars," we want to go to space, explore, and go to places we haven't been before. we want to be innovative and create and these are things that get us excited and motivated and go to space and do these things. i believe that the united states is the leader in the world in space because we are really an innovative culture and we want to keep it that way.
8:55 am
so, you know, i go out and i talk to schools and i talk to all kinds of groups of people, children as well as adults and they're all excited about space and learn more about the things that we're doing. you can actually look at the research that we're doing on the space station, on the human body. so we're learning a lot more about us as humans, we're also learning about planet earth as we look back and we study the earth and space and we look out to the universe. >> this is really interesting, what you're raising here. and governor, you make a great point, what the benefits have been of space travel because people don't really understand, they don't connect the dots on that. so, ilene, talk to us about that. what do you think are the most important take aways from space travel is this what did we-- what are the most important things that we've learned over these years? >> the most important thing i believe, again, is strategic. it's exploration. countries that lead in the world are countries that explore. and if you look at the history of the world, countries that explore are the leaders, they're the innovators,
8:56 am
discoverers. the first is intangible, but when you get to the things that can be measured, we like to study the human body in space, the number one mission of the space station is to learn what happens to the human body in space over long periods of time. so, we have seen what happened to astronauts are similar to osteoporosis. we lose strengths in our bones for being in space a long period of time. we lose the strength in our cardiovascular system. we notice a change in the shape of the eyeball. there's many other things that happen to astronauts. there's a long duration study of astronaut health. so, i think we're learning about ourselves as humans, as kind of a-- maybe one of the benefits of being explorers, and we're developing vaccine on the space station, growing protein crystals use today develop better medicines. the space station, you don't hear a lot about this, but the
8:57 am
space station is like a closed loop life support system. all the water is recycled and air is recycled. so we learn about how to do these type of life support systems and the technology can be used back here on earth. the space shuttle had fuel cells and now there's talk of fuel cell powered cars so these are some of the technology things that we're learning from space and we make mistakes sometimes because we're doing things that haven't been done before. maria: great stuff. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. maria: congratulations to you. we'll be right back. marie, you have prediabetes.
8:58 am
8:59 am
prediabetes?! i don't have time to eat right or exercise. i'm a busy mom! oh, you're a busy mom? yeah. this is great news! busy moms never get prediabetes. wait, what? let me just...yeah! this is all the people at risk for prediabetes, and way over here-- busy moms. no? whew.
