6:00 am
president obama taking message overseas taking last forei trip landing in agrees. he will reassure foreign allies and tell all americans that president elect trump wants to serve everyone. >> i've been encouraged on his statements on election night about the need for unity and his interest in being the president for all people and that how he staffs the first steps he takes and first impressions he makes and reset that can happen after election all the things should be important and thought about. i think it's important to give him the room and space to do that. it takes time to put that together. maria: coming as president elect donald trump works to share administration and shape it.
6:01 am
vice president elect heads to to shape on cabinet decision. google and facebook to take action with the company say they are town now to xat mounting criticism and wild fires are continuing to spread this morning causing millions of dollars in taj. latest coming up. apple takes another step. tbaint working on smart glasses to take on giants like samsung. >> after record close yesterday. dow industrial expected to be up 145 points. investors eyeing the retail sector. sales are out there morning. that typically could be a market mover. mostly higher.
6:02 am
in asia overnight, hong kong is best performer. all the stories coming up this morning and joining me to talk about it fox business dagen mcdowell, bryan and rachel. >> thanks for having me. dagen: good morning, so much to talk about. the election is over. maria: the administration is being shaped. stay with us. former trump campaign manager and senior adviser to president elect trump kellyanne conway is here.
6:03 am
john dan gruber is here, general anthony zinni also. big show ahead. president obama kicks tour as sitting president today. he arrives at athens, greece. he will make stops to germany, lima, perú, the president held first news conference since donald trump was elected. >> i think that he is obviously greg or use person and somebody who, i think, likes to mix it up and to have a debate. he is coming to this office with fewer set harden policy prescriptions than other presidents might be arriving with.
6:04 am
i don't think he is ideological. i believe ultimately he's pragmatic in that way. maria: joining us right now lieutenant governor and zach rocha. betsy, let me givecongratulatio. >> thank you. maria: what do you make of obama's language addressing trump. it's interesting, he's taking a steady stand on this. >> it is and it's probably a good thing that he's taking the tour because removes him from the american stage giving the president elect a little more room. on the other hand, it would have been better if he played golf because the fact is this election was a repudiation of president obama's foreign policy. paris climate accord, iran deal, the ongoing slaughter in the middle east, for him to meet with foreign leaders now, you wonder who can possibly be accomplished. maria: he's basically talking
6:05 am
about the present elect and what he can tell other leaders in terms of what to expect, what do you think he's going to be saying to leaders abroad? >> i've talked to donald trump and he ain't as crazy as you think he is. he's going to be your president whether you like it or not, whether you voted for him or didn't. i did not vote for donald trump, guess what, donald trump is going to be my president and much like the president, i'm going to give him a shot and he's not wanting to come in and destroy america. he has a vision, we can debate policy initiatives and i want to hold him accountable on the things i disagree, he's the president of the united states. he will be sworn him, he will be my president. more people need to wake up to that and held all election officials accountable. >> good for you. dagen: it is. it goes back to how president bush and the first lady treated
6:06 am
president obama and his wife during the transition and frankly over the last eight years, i've said over and over again, the bush's set an example in terms of grace, class and courtesy to the on ooms and he understand, president obama understands the importance of a handover. the campaign is over, he said that. he was as kind in word as he could be to president elect trump. but to -- chuck, to your point, what in the heck donald trump can do, you're a bernie sanders supporter? you were as left -- what could donald trump do as president that would make you happy? >> well, it's very interesting that you say that it's a great question, what i saw when i was working for a area for bernie sanders, crowds of people who came together that were frustrated, frustrated that their voice wasn't being heard by government and elected officials. guess what? donald trump appealed to those same types of people and the american people have seen themselves left behind by
6:07 am
economic recovery that went on for good people, rich people, but regular folks had been left behind. there's a commonality of struggle there where people want to voice and stand up for all americans. >> that's exactly why donald trump won the election. he was able to bring those middle-america voters who had been forgotten by washington. maria: even with pushback with the gop and establishment. let's talk about paul ryan. he's expected to retain title as the house speaker, correct? >> there's no other member of congress that has the support of paul ryan. there's no other replacement for him and like him. maria: on the other side of the aisle, what do you think in terms of that? >> the democrats learned nothing from last week's route.
6:08 am
keith ellison is extremely radical. he's one of two muslims in congress, nothing wrong with being a muslim but the fact is he is pulling the democratic party far left and this meeting that's occurring with george zorros and democratic leaders signals this this people want to pull the party as far left possible rather than reaching out to maybe stream voters that repuduated them. dagen: chuck can answer better than i can. is it a rejection of the clintons, of her, all the cronies that who surrounded them and did sleazy things to keep her in power or is it a rejection of the more left ideal
6:09 am
ology. >> most americans find that repulsive. maria: do you think the election was repudiation? >> i was tired of old-rich white men trying to tell folks how to live, guess who had the message this year and the reason why he won. we need to drain our swamps ourselves of political insiders who have been running the party for over 15, 20 years. we lost 11 senate ats and 14 tbompor races in the last nine years. we need to change everything and put a new face and vision forward to the american people.
6:10 am
>> i really like you, chuck. [laughter] >> he did say my legacy is on the line and we know these policies don't work. we know that on the fox business channel that those policies didn't work economically. maria: let's talk about george zurros for a minute. democratic don --s are meeting in washington, they want to find ways to use their funds to oppose president elect trump and retool their approach. >> chuck, there seems to be a double standard where you have democrats get very little scrutiny about their big-league donors meeting in washington, d.c. republicans tend to get a lot of scrutiny for that. how do you see something fed up with the left and how things are going? >> democrats and lefties like me are pushing minimum wage, and social security is for the long haul. we have had big donors like that who have been influential in the
6:11 am
apparatus. that's what makes bernie sanders different. twenty-five dollars at a time showing that regular people can have influence in their society and democratic party. that's probably going to be the new model with the internet. maria: he was behind voter fraud. >> oh, yes. the whole basket of deplorables concept came from george zorros, he used the same language to try to discredit candidates in europe and he uses funds all around the world to push elections to the left. he funded many local prosecutors. maria: is he an american citizen? >> i don't know. antilaw and order candidates for local prosecutors, people who would be soft on crime.
6:12 am
maria: i know he's european. maria: i think he is. he's talk nothing person. i think they are nervous about things getting out. >> i don't think he could make large donations to american candidates. >> they're having a meeting versus doing this by e-mail, they know that their emails are being watched or can be leaked. >> big money approach to politics, exactly what voters reputed and that's what americans are going to. >> doubling down. maria: wild fires through seven states right now. that's next. google and facebook take a stand against fake news, how the technology giants are targeting phoney content creators' wallets. that's coming up next g new cars.
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
you're smart. you already knew that. but it's also great for finding the perfect used car. you'll see what a fair price is, and you can connect with a truecar certified dealer. now you're even smarter. this is truecar. it wsomething he did for fun until the day it became something much more. and that is why you invest. maria: welcome back, firefighters struggle to get a handle on dozen offense wild fires. this morning cheryl casone with the headlines, good morning to you. cheryl: good morning, thousands of acres across georgia, alabama, mississippi, tennessee,
6:16 am
kentucky and the carolinas, all of this made worse from dry conditions. arson suspected in cases. luckily authorities haven't reported any serious injuries. two internet giants facing criticism over misinformation may have influenced presidential election. yesterday google ban fake news website for using advertising service and facebook announced to implement policy. apple is working on smart glasses that will connect to your iphone overlay information and augmented reality so there's a design for you. the company holds several patents hinting at a device like this. early product testing and could potentially hit shelves as early as to 18. amazon has a brand-new bag for
6:17 am
the holidays. take a look. instead of individually wrapping, amazon is going to shift them in velvety bags. these bags costing amazon a lot less than traditional wrapping paper. it's a win-win for amazon. maria: i actually like it. dagen: don't get me a gift in a bag. maria: why? dagen: it's a bag. unless it's a wine bag. dagen: take it out of the bag and wrap it yourself. i'm an expert gift wrapper. there's very things do i well on
6:18 am
planet earth but wrapping packages is one of them because i worked in gift stores when i was a teenager. maria: let us know what you think. maria: what post election holiday can tell us about the consumer. tsa slams brakes on security check. we will be back in two minute's time. the microsoft cloud helps us
6:19 am
6:20 am
stay connected. the microsoft cloud offers infinite scalability. the microsoft cloud helps our customers get up and running, anywhere in the planet. wherever there's a phone, you've got a bank, and we could never do that before. the cloud gave us a single platform to reach across our entire organization. it helps us communicate better. we use the microsoft cloud's advanced analytics tools to track down cybercriminals. this cloud helps transform business. this is the microsoft cloud.
6:21 am
6:22 am
maria: october reports to a out in about two hours from now. we are expecting a gape of one half of 14%. the state of the consumer going into the holiday, how are you seeing it? >> yeah, i don't know if i want to spend the season, 25% say the election is going to affect holiday spending. 43%g budget tightly. one of the strongest seasons in several years, consumers say before the election i don't know but the election has thrown us a lot of curve balls and that might be true of consumer spending as well. maria: we also get home depot, retailer beating estimates on both revenues and earnings on home depot, shares, the to be is going to be up this morning. people have been spending in this area home goods. >> they're going to continue to spend online.
6:23 am
17% online, online spending is going to exceed 10% for the first time ever when it comes to holiday spending. retailers ready are going to be in good position, if you're not, you will be hurt this season. dagen: to home depot, good numbers, when we were looking at the top, because of bounceback and longer-term interest rates the huge selloff in corporate debt in the united states since the election, maybe it's a move away from kind of the safety of treasuries but you have yields yesterday, you can see them there, 2.3%. high for the year but mortgage rates have now shot up. you've got a 30-year fixed rate mortgage as of yesterday back at 4%. that's the highest level since january. so there's always a negative to higher long-term interest rates and that could be felt in the coming weeks in terms of home sales, even what happened at the home improvement sales.
6:24 am
maria: rates have gone up, stocks have gone up since the election. what are markets saying about the donald trump administration? >> i think they are saying a lot of growth, we expect a lot of growth, we expect more inflation. we are not thinking about long-term debt. we are seeing growth in the first time, generally that's a good sign, even for the home retailers like home depot. when the economy is growing, you're working on your home. that's what the markets are telling us right now. dagen: i'm curious, at what point there's a selloff in the bond market get in the way of stack market rallies. we haven't seen it yet but there's got to be a level that all of the pros we talked to are worried about. maria: nice to see growth as a priority and that definitely has been the priority of donald trump's economic plan. steve moore comes on the show a lot of the time. he's probably going to get a position in the administration. he's looking for double.
6:25 am
>> i think it's possible. if you look at it. it's a plan that's about growth. roll back regulations. all of that is really good. as far as the holiday stuff, i just think on a regular person, we just -- i can't believe thanksgiving is on us. nobody was thinking about it and that's probably why online is going to be great and we have to do it online. maria: i couldn't believe it. dagen: optimism actually helps lift an economy that if people -- they don't have to love donald trump but they have to feel like there are better days ahead. something is going to happen out of washington that's going to lift all boats and at least feel that, if they're optimistic that leads to a better -- maria: behave differently. >> it'll be one thing if donald trump was elected and republicans didn't have the senate and the house, but things are going to move now.
6:26 am
>> and trump is very careful about what he said the economy. he's focused on taxes an regulation and he hasn't gone to some of the more controversial issues that markets don't like. maria: like trade. >> exactly. water gets choppy when he talks about trade. that's helpful for consumers. they look that. dagen: i said this last week, when paul ryan did that interview with bret baier last week, he was like the kid who found air rider rifle under the christmas tree. maria: he was so happy. dagen: it was very genuine about what could get accomplish in the first year. maria: you have to believe they're going get lots through particularly on the economic side and you think this partnership, paul ryan, donald trump and reince priebus. dagen: pence and ryan are close.
6:27 am
very critical to keep it -- well, people got angry about paul ryan, i thought that was overblown. i thought if trump did win that ryan would be there and by his side. maria: hid west power, that's for sure. >> absolutely. [laughter] maria: coming up president elect trump gearing up to be commander in chief. we will talk about the cabinet how shaping foreign policy plans and who is next in terms of announcements for these important jobs. whatsapp looking up with new features, back in a minute

maria: good tuesday morning, everybody. thanks for joining. i'm maria bartiromo, it is tuesday november 15, top stories 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. president obama takes over international trip as president. he will reassure world leaders of president elect's donald trump to commitment to nato, before departed, president reiterated support for president elect. >> he successfully mobilized a big chunk of the country to vote for him and he has won, he's going to be the next president.
6:31 am
and regardless of what experience or assumptions he brought to the office, this office has a way of waking you up. some of the gifts that obviously allowed him to execute one of the biggest political upsets in history, you know, those are the ones that hopefully he will put to good use. maria: the support coming as the next administration begins to take shape, the latest as president elect trump considers big names for very important roles. new concerns over drinking water in the u.s., thousands of people in two states may be at serious risk. we will tell you about it. cybersecurity concerns could cause major headache this season. putting tsa precheck on hold. markets looking higher. record close yesterday, futures indicating the rally continues with the dow expected to open up 15 points, we are watching
6:32 am
retail today, several companies reporting earnings. home depot better than expected and retail sales report for october out at 8:30, two hours from now. the dollar hitting a 13 and a half year high this morning. the ftse up this morning, cac quarante up a quarter of a per can he be the. in asia markets were mixed. and it was a monday night thriller, the highlights of the new york giants big win last night. we will bring you all the games coming up. the world waiting anxiously for donald trump to appoint cabinet. >> when i became mayor of new york, i surrounded with people that disagreed with each other, i really thought it was a bad idea to get people that have the
6:33 am
same idea. exposing him to different viewpoints is the best we can do. maria: john bolton, embassador, good to see you. >> good morning, glad to be you. maria: have you spoken about cabinet selection and can you talk about priorities are and how you see the cabinet coming together? >> well, not really, i don't think it's a appropriate to discuss it in -- in public and so i've tried to avoid that. i'm imperfect i suppose in that regard, but that's the view i take. maria: you know the reason i'm asking, rudy giuliani addressed the possibility of your place in a trump cabinet just yesterday. watch this. >> would be a better good
6:34 am
choice. >> is there anybody else better? >> maybe me, i don't know. [laughter] maria: that was pretty funny. >> that was hilarious. maria: would you accept a cabinet position, embassador? >> i'm not going to talk about it. the president elect will make decisions and we will all move on from there. maria: let's talk about international trip, final international trip traveling to greece taking 7-day fairwell trip to europe. what does he need to say and plan to go tell foreign leaders from your perspective? he's already said that trump understands the importance of nato and trying to reassure world leaders. is that the way you seit? >> well, if you look at trump's speeches during the campaign he said several times his objective is to strengthen nato. we can talk about some of the comments like european nato members not living up to their own commitment to spend 2% of gross national product on defense which is a point made
6:35 am
repeatedly by the entire american foreign policy establish meant. it was only noteworthy when he said it rather than what they say. i would be honestly, worried about having the outgoing president describing what the new president's policy is going to be. i think it's almost inevitable that it can happen but, i think, that european leaders would be best advised to talk to the president elect directly and have their opening conversation, obviously more will follow. maria: that's a very good point. dagen: embassador, it's dagen mcdowell, donald trump has exhibited some warmth toward vladimir putin, that's something else at least during the campaign that has worried those in europe. >> well, what i heard trump say during the campaign was that he admired putin's strength as a leader and i think it's clear putin is taking a very weak hand
6:36 am
in terms of domestic economy but played a very strong hand in international affairs because he has faced weak leadership from washington. i didn't take that to mean that he agreed with putin's substantive policies specially where they're in conflict with the united states as in the case of russia's close relations with nuclear iran. >> embassador, what does a gad relationship with russia look like? what would in your view what would be good, helpful here for trump to pursue? >> well, i think international relations are largely determined by the clash or influence of national interest and those areas where putin has prepared to work with us against islamic terrorism, i think that's a possibility, but if he thinks flying air cover for iran's nuclear weapon program and
6:37 am
security council protecting north korea's nuclear weapon program, those are fundamentally contrary to american interest. i think in reality in places like kremlin and beijing that it's better to have a strong american leader because it actually even if there are broad areas of disagreement it enhances the possibility for cooperation in other areas if leader in russia and china don't respect the american president, you're not going to get much cooperation at all. why is it in their interest to cooperate with the weak person when they can take what they want? maria: you make a great point. you're looking at pictures of president obama and his team arriving in athens, greece. it is about 1:30 in the afternoon in greece right now and he's just arriving. we will continue to show you the pictures while we continue the conversation with embassador, bolton. you have an op-ed that trump needs to reverse the iran deal. obama regarded national security
6:38 am
policy as a distraction during presidency. what specific things does trump need to do to assert our interest? can he walk in and how tough would that be? >> i don't think it would be tough at all. the europeans were caught up in -- in this deal, engaged in economic transactions with iran, the iatolas knew exactly what they were doing to make the deal irreversible, let's be clear what america's interest is, this deal was a strategic debacle. not only is it bad in the united states in the big picture, the terms of the deal are bad. you can't hold them to the terms of the deal that's unclear and subject to multiple interpretations as this deal is. i think the only thing that we could do to try and get back on the right track is to say the
6:39 am
deal is over. i'm confident iran was violating it before the ink was dry and they are doing it today. unless you are content to have iran to deliver nuclear weapons, this deal has is to be scrapped. maria: do you think that's going to insight response, they're not going to be happy, obviously. are you worried? >> point one, iranians aren't going to be happy. you better believe they are not going to be happy because the best deal imaginable that they got will disappear. will they change their behavior, look at their behavior from the deal in viena to today, it has gotten worse internationally. they have taken american hostages. they've armed the houthi ri -- rebels. they have attacked the united
6:40 am
states for not fulfilling the deal when john kerry has been described as paul ryan asking if he's president of the tehran chamber of commerce. that should tell you something. >> embassador, it sounds like trump wants to strengthen nato, at least that's what you said, but is it time to restructure our defense relationship with europe or is that just too disruptive? >> well, i think it's time for europe to decide that they're going to live up to their commitments. this is a point that trump has made. the criticism that he received for it like former secretary of defense bob gates, he said, look, nobody was second to me in urging the europeans to spend more on defense. okay, great, let's take that as true. he failed. the europeans, many of them, did not spend more on defense. so having a candid conversation
6:41 am
among allies about what it's going to take to stand up to what, to stand up to the potential of russian atbreción in eastern and central europe as we see today in ukraine, what russia has done twice in the past ten years is something we said we would never allow in the continent of europe again after 1945, they have used military force to change international boundaries. that is unacceptable. maria: you're right. is donald trump going to be tough with russia in that regard . >> i suppose it depends in parton how the europeans respond. britain's decision to leave the european union will help us strengthen the nato alliance. maria: that's a good point. >> we will have now a closer relationship with the british and we will sort the europeans out. i think sometimes when you -- when you're following a diplomatic persuade europeans to spend more money, sometimes
6:42 am
shaking the box can achieve results. maria: good to see you. we will be watching developments. coming up a health scare in counties in pennsylvania and new york. after tens of thousands of residents could have been exposed to harmful toxins, we will tell you how and why. the largest mall will look allot smaller on thanks giving with only three stores that would keep open on thanksgiving day. back in a minute you can't predict the market. but through good times and bad... t. rowe price... ...we've helped our investors stay confident for over 75 years. call us or your advisor. t. rowe price. invest with confidence.

an effort to unite the country under president-elect donald trump. >> i don think any president ever comes in saying to themselves, i want to figure out how to make people angry or alienate half the country. i think he's going to try as best he can to make sure that he delivers not only for the people who voted for him, but the people at-large. the good thing as fairest elections coming up and there's an incentive for him to do that. it's only been six days and i think it will be important for him to have the room, to staff up, to figure out what his priorities are. maria: amy holmes, political analyst at rasmussen with horror. good to see you both. thanks for joining us. top story in the journal. rudy giuliani is the first
7:04 am

7:05 am
sin by donald trump. rudy giuliani and gingrich shoulder to shoulder work is that surrogates throughout the campaign. part of it is bad. these are people with deep, deep experience. giuliani more so i say prosecutor, but they are well known. people know them. you call than the establishment. they are trump loyalists but also establishments at the same time. regardless of the position rudy giuliani gets to give people a sense of comfort. maria: and confidence. while the kid thinks in terms of who gets what job in donald trump putting together his candidate, what about the protesters. what should president obama or hillary clinton or the leadership, what should they say? do they need to speak directly to the protesters to unite the country? >> i think they do.
7:06 am
the campaign is over and time forunity and he said we have to accept the results of the election. it's not just accept the mr. trump is our brand-new president. it's the millions and millions of honorable men and women who went to the polls to elect him. it's respecting your fellow citizens, the democratic process. it was fair and square, open entrance and and donald trump won that contest. i think dear more leadership from the president not bashing donald trump is that this is all up to him. when you consider the fact is going out internationally to represent the united states company is still our president until january. maria: can i jump in on that? president obama is not going to be president two months from now. a lot of protesters have to come to grips with that. president intend to go off into the sunset to let the next president be which is what barack obama will be doing in a couple months. these protesters that they are
7:07 am
democrats need to start looking to sunni leaders have not party to ... make that message that amy is talking about. hillary clinton and barack obama have said funny at this point and other leaders need to step forward. maria: someone may still harry reid the election is over. >> i know obama is saying the words, but i don't feel the emotion. still attacking donald trump saying you need to unify. dagen: that's not an attack. maria: i was actually impressed. dagen: given how negative the president was on the campaign trail, he's done his mighty best at this point in terms of trying to comecrs. >> i'm not so sure it's about that. when he is mr. and mrs. trump come in through a side door, no public photo. dagen: it's living in fantasyland to expect expect anything more that the
7:08 am
president. he's learning from the bushes. eucom not at what baggage when you watch the president. if you really don't like him that's fine. maria: he seems to be trying. dagen: try to did a decent job of avoiding being baited by the press corps been trying to get them to say some thing. >> when there is a white driver pulled out of his car and beat up, imagine this the other way around, what he would be singing. dagen: we are talking about him and donald trump. >> he needs to call out his people. >> i think he is sending signals at this point. a public photo op with a brand-new president to bring the first lady. when that courtesy was extended, when a campaign viciously against george bush that all of
7:09 am
our presidents which he actually did throughout his presidency. he gave him that courtesy. president obama should extend that courtesy to mr. trump. dagen: donald trump questioned the president citizenship for years. it's a lot to get over it. there's a lot of anger between the two men. it is glass half-full rather than class have had tea. maria: we had very little expect patience. how long has president obama saying donald trump is unfit and donald trump saying obama is the founder of isis. >> e..donald trump having a phone call with nat romney, one of his most vocal and determined opponents and they were able come together. >> it's not just what's going on publicly. it has also been reported president obama will spend more time than presidents tend to but

the status for all practical purposes our american kid. i mean, these are kids who were brought here by their parents. maria: this coming as rahm emanuel, mayor of chicago, this is what he said he at chicago it is and will remain a sanctuary city of los angeles police chief refuses to help deport illegal immigrants. >> rahm emanuel also said you're safe in chicago. maria: so glad you brought that up. how much of the factors in the most murders that are in chicago this year. how much of that is due to the fact with so many illegals and it's a sanctuary city. how much do attribute? >> here is what i did. i think what trump has said is i'm going to get rid of felons. this talk about the children and
7:12 am
its obama kind of feeding this whole fear of donald trump. donald trump says i'm going to secure the border and get rid of criminal felons and prioritize that. everybody wants that. maria: especially in chicago. dagen: let's rephrase that from emanuel sein. if you're legally in this country and commit violent crimes, you have a safe place. maria: ridiculous. >> we have seen that statistically. only those who have committed crimes are attracted to century cities because they know their status will not be questioned. mayor from emanuel is in no position to be driving up the crime in chicago. >> hispanics are offended by being conflated. even illegal hard-working hispanic's are offended by being conflated with the silence. maria: they should be offended. is rahm emanuel setting himself
7:13 am
up for war with donald trump ?-questionstion -mark >> that's clearly what is intending. as the mayor of chicago protecting the safety of its citizens, i can imagine why he would invite criminal element among illegal immigrants into a city. dagen: 656 homicides in the city of chicago this year as of yesterday. maria: from emanuel made the federal funding and is really being defiant. he does not need to shut down federal funding. i would point out that the los angeles mayor said he would act up and act out which is going a step further than the police chief and further than what from emanuel says. that's a problem from los angeles mayor. maria: he's going to act out. that's exactly what people want to hear. good to see you. is this a cure for lost luggage? plus mcdonald's spices up its menu with sriracha. the fast food giant with a hot

7:23 am
good to see you. thank you for joining us. are you surprised by this reaction from markets? pretty positive on the heels of a trump victory. >> i'm not surprised. as my surprised by that if we have been recovered very quickly. it could be a good day, could be a bad day. but what to hold repeal it not replace it. we have smarter regulation that allows them to provide the real economy. >> you are always a proponent after what you witnessed and what we are witnessing 2007 and 2008 in the upset that bank should have more cash is much higher than it has been. what would be the right changes to make in dodd-frank without unraveling at all and be sure the financial service sector was safe. >> i think the core should be to
7:24 am
maintain strong, clear capital standards. read standards. we have something called a leverage ratio of financial strength. i would like to see that higher. some of these rules are highly misleading, overly complex. i would hope the core of the new administration regulatory approach would be a strong base of capital to make sure the banks i need good times and bad. this is something jet penciling has pushed out of office the lead contender for treasury. the fact that mr. trump is talking to people like it might take is a good sign because strong capital needs to be at the heart of any reasonable regulatory system. >> we've heard so much about regional banks are struggling with regulation. idc trump. idc trump helping out some of those banks as they are struggling? >> there has been a lot of regulation on the regional banks. the bread and butter banks were not involved in this crisis or a driver of this crisis. that would be a very good focus.
7:25 am
i think you could streamline those more for the smaller institution. susan collins has suggested regulators to provide inception for smaller banks are many roles because they don't have anything to do with what drove the crisis. i think there's a lot of opportunity there and that is smart in terms of his make america great stimulus program because small-business lending has been in place for the habit and growth. still significantly below were bused to the crisis. that's a driver of job creation. the share of small-business lending. focusing on that area would be very compatible with his progrowth agenda. dagen: how quickly could that type of lending snapback? >> a lot of its demand. if he's successful overall in getting the economy growing again that should stimulate demand and get into a self reinforcing virtuous cycle. it will probably take some time
7:26 am
to stimulate demand but on the supply side there thinks he can do very quickly. it needs to be a core part of the regulatory approach was smaller banks are pretty high capital levels already. tragedy securities and exchange commission mary jo white announced that she will step down in january. what does this mean to you, sheila? one of the things that will happen is obviously when she steps down the rules fair and the fcc will also be pulled back. for example, the curbside mutual funds he said to have it isn't stricter controls on algorithms, off exchange venues. what do you sense in terms of the change was mary jo white needs. she says she's leaving in january and that open the door for a republican appointee. >> yeah, so i don't really know mary jo white pages per disinterest in her policies.
7:27 am
she was criticized on both sides or maybe she was doing the right thing. the sec is a challenging agency to be good to have been having for many years. structurally hope we look at the sec and whether they should have more of a market oriented approach. some of these rules make sense. some of them don't. i think it's a good example of where we didn't take the simplest direct approach to make many friends i think a mutual fund which they are in accordance with their underlying investments. they did a completely different approach which is skewed investment and it vanished data over commercl papers. that would be an area where you could do smarter regulation but not no regulation. i hope whoever comes down and paul atkins apparently is leading a lot of this. he certainly knows what happened during the financial crisis. there need to be better rules in place.
7:28 am
the question is how to fine tune them come and make them simple, clear, affect it. not all of these rules have been somewhat bureaucratic. there is a good opportunity to review and keep what is good, simplified what is perhaps bureaucratic but make sure we do have the strong infrastructure regulation to keep the system stable and bad times. maria: and do it with the lack of resources frankly. >> that's exactly right. big issue. maria: sheila, good to see you. thanks so much. getting affordable care act to read the trump administration? we'll talk to one of the architects said the legislation. check your freezer. another popular ice cream under recall this morning over fearsct of listeria. back in a moment. anywhere in the planet. wherever there's a phone, you've got a bank, and we

7:32 am
she would tell them to stop it. he has no more control over it than the thugs in los angeles who destroy property. let's be fair about things. if there are crazy people who have come to crazy conclusions about donald trump's election, all i can do is tell them to stop it. at least he's done that. i haven't heard barack obama say cut it out, stop demonstrating. maria: president obama for us to defend his signature legislation. what to expect as donald trump is to repeal under obamacare. small business major impact breaking down how business across the country react to return presidency this morning. newly serious concerns hitting another ice cream maker. the latest recall you need to know about. the dow industrials coming off of another record high close

7:34 am
affordable care act with their own plan that 25 million have health insurance and it's cheaper and better and running smoothly, albeit the first one to say that's great. congratulations. >> let's bring in a lot of the of obamacare. professor jonathan gruber, thanks so much for joining us. we know what donald trump has said on the campaign trail. can you change the legislation but leave things like preexisting condition, young people on their
7:35 am
you $10,000 a month. donald trump doesn't follow those problems. the affordable care act as. trade to the affordable care act has made it incredibly expensive for business and individuals. there's a reason that it helped you with us a billion dollars on it so that a lot of the plan.slg seriously wrong with legislation to upset so many people because projected before obamacare. individual insurance paid by about 7 million people is exactly where it would have been absent obamacare. the press coverage has been completely misleading. maria: why have three major insurance companies that the exchanges?
7:36 am
>> this is a new market for which they are not prepared. other companies do it love that thrive in the exchanges and we are in a transition period. maria: so why are we seen on average 25% in recent premiums next year and a state like arizona premiums up 116%? >> physically, what you are not spec that expanding medicaid and insurance people sign-up is growing much very slowly.
7:37 am
maria: i've had this debate would seek a manual several times and it's very hard to make the case you are making no way but the reality is. the reality is families cannot afford obamacare and the reality as premiums across the country have skyrocketed. even if you are in a plan with your company like you say so many people are, companies are not hiring more workers. the planned 100% of the data as a way to expensive. that is not price. that is not speculation. this is what families and businesses are saying. >> maria, that is just obamacar.
7:38 am
it has been flat, hasn't fallen in premiums have gone down. maria: premiums are going up. >> not for employers. you keep mixing it up. most of your listeners have insurance. their premiums are not going up 22%. maria: they don't have a choice because insurance companies have pulled out. united, as now. >> they have not pulled out of employer insurance. you are mixing it up. employer insurance is that most of your listeners have. no insurers are leaving. premiums grow at historically slow rates. $3100 without we expect. now it's come to the individual exchanges. that affects about 7 million people. there you are insurers have left. premiums are up. in the market premiums are up to where they would have been
7:39 am
before the law because over the last three years they've been down 20%. maria: let's talk about business in general. we have a lot of small businesses on this program. but they constantly say day after day is the reason they are not hiring more employees is because they can't afford to offer health insurance. the reason they don't undertake a number of employees they have above 50 is because they will be forced to offer insurance. the reason they are turning full-time jobs into part-time jobs is so they can avoid paying for the insurance. you want to separate business and individuals, let's do it. businesses because the legislation is too expensive. it's a fact of not so businesses say so businesses say when they come on this program. have you make this legislation less expensive. >> once agai pdon't use the word fact because you are not saying fax.
7:40 am
you're saying anecdotes. maria: a fact of economic growth is 2% or lower. one of the recent economic growth is as low as it is is because businesses are not hiring workers and not doing activity because of the cost of obamacare. that is a fact. do you dispute economic growth? 10 years after the financial crisis? >> it's the most rapid it's been 18 yall obamacare has anything to do. maria: it is very hard to believe you after what you said when the flaw first came out that americans are too big and you needed a public to get this author. let's roll that back. listen to this, jonathan.
7:41 am
>> lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and basically the stupidity of the american voter or whatever. basically that was really critical to getting things past. maria: said that is why you are able to pass this legislation through. >> maria, i deeply regret those comments which are taken out of context. maria: what is out of context? we just heard you say it. >> went out of context if i was an academic conference but conjecturing about something i shouldn't have been. i made a mistake. that doesn't excuse you are denying true facts. you are making up facts, maria. you made up the fact that obamacare has caused job loss. there is no evidence. maria: there is 100% evidence. all linear 10 ceos to come on the show and tell me that the reason. >> who cares if the ceo comes on the show and tells you that. look at the data.
7:42 am
there's not a single data point. maria: i don't need data when i have the ceo telling me i'm not adding workers because of the cost of obamacare. that is my data. i spoke to the boss and he gave me the reason. >> that is absolutely wrong. data is considered by looking at the facts on the ground. maria: the facts on the front of the managers of businesses, the people making hiring decisions and why they are not putting new jobs in their companies because it's too expensive to do so because of obamacare. that is data, jonathan. for you to say what a ceo says is the reason he's not hiring people is ridiculous. >> maria, you have people on the show expressing a view of one company and we don't know what they are going to say. i made a mistake and comment by regret. the ceos are coming on a making comment. who knows if they are making up for political reass are why
7:43 am
they are making it. maria: they are making it because they can afford the legislation. maria: buddies make in this blog asked good to premium growth has been the slowest in measured history. that is the act. maria: i don't need to go to the kaiser foundation when i know it i friend you paying for health care. but what i know of businesses paying. it was here and now it's here. all i need to know is that people are saying. i can't spend this money act activity. i can't spend this money hiring people because i'm spending
7:44 am
money on health care. in the first years of president obama's presidency, when it both houses of congress, you should've spoken instead on economic growth. maybe we would be in a different place than we are today 2% economic growth. >> president obama focused as the largest stimulus. the largest stimulus in history? you make the stimulus package was the largest innocent history. don't start blaming president obama would first of all once again you are moving to economic growth. this is about a health care law. you can bring up ceos who want to give exam olds. listeners want to know the truth. i urge you to look at the facts. trade do we want people who are getting affected by the law, not someone in the ivory tower telling us what they should be, but in fact what people are seated on the ground because they are the ones affected by
7:45 am
the law. that is why that is fact, talking to ceos and managers of businesses. not someone looking at a bunch of numbers on the kaiser website. good to see you, sir. thank you good jonathan gruber joining us. we will be right back. they say you shouldn't spoil your kids,

8:38 am
do we put this all back together again. it may not be that there can be iraq or syria as we knew it before so i think it is time before the fighting really ends, at some point, that we start thinking about this, and we have to engage the regional powers international community to start thinking about this. >> what do you think would a successful transition in terms of defense look like what should be the trump administration's military goals as you look at the hot spots around the world today? >> well, i think there are several things first of all, selection of the secretary of defense i would like to see someone who is a true strategic thinker enelevator leverage it can restructure issues in military that really needs to be cleaned up we need somebody that knows the military. we need a strategy out there, to which we can fit the kind of military we need i don't
8:39 am
really believe we have had true strategic thinking being acting since end of the of the cold war we have a military constantly is confused as to what the political objectives are, what is the strategy, and what kind of military do we need. and i can't start rebuilding a military unless you know why you are doing it, and for what purpose. >> that has been absent. >> ken with us. >> first of all, thank you so much for your great service to our country, for many, many years you have done it. we are grateful to you. we thank god for people like you that guys like me can go up do our things you make sure we are protected god bless you thank you very much. for all of us. >> thank you. >> i am reading for the second time the book the best and the brightest seems to me that at least last 40 years our military on ground level basis where the war is where
8:40 am
conflict is had hands behind their back general schwarzkopf made a call said we've got them on the run can get them in 24 hours think what would have happened had we at an saddam out there instead of waiting the way we did then more recently the war in iraq, where the literally people rumsfeld so forth tried to tell military how to fight a battle. how important is it going to be for you people for the military, to get back to the authority the judgment that should be yours how we win a war? >> well i think you are right on the money. you know, the president needs to have confidence in his military commanders if he don't you should replace them with people he has confidence in. the days of joerj mar smal dwight eisenhower, those were the was when president knew commanders and trust their military judgment. i was in iraq in 20 so also in afghanistan.
8:41 am
what i saw we xhaengs consumers in afghanistan for example every year 10 years. maria: wow. >> same in iraq that gets to the point you made, the troops on the ground see rules of engagement change operational designs change it is is confusion at its best so we've got to rebull uniform relationship with our civilian masters and trust that has been absent, i think. maria: that is such an important point general, but there usual the oubt things that seem obviously, leadership and things that are less obviously like russia, inserting itself in serious conflict how should trump administration look at russia dealing with russia do we trust them or not. >> well i think russia is testing us not only in middle east but obviously in eastern europe and elsewhere. i think putin is senseing that maybe nato isn't as committed as cohesive as once was may be american leadership isn't as
8:42 am
strong in they see parts of the world as it has been what we've got to do regain republican we've got i think revamp nato into more viable military alliance pull together our allies in the middle east in the region, make sure they understand we are committed to their security. but the real trick here in dealing with the russians is to regain that respect. and that position of leadership. in places where they are testing us. >> can donald trump do it? >> i think any president can do it, it is a matter of will a matter of billed the right kind of military, and it is a matter of having the right strategy and people who think through the kinds of things we need to do, and i would add to that, building strong alliance partnerships around the world. >> general zinni before i leave, do me a favor give me call when you are in new york you and administera and i will have lunch today that is not bad god bless you -- >> you are on. >> general thank you so much for your time we so appreciate it general anthony zinni
