6:03 am
contributing. trump, position. maria: incredible. renzi will resign. kevin: he should. we said the presidet said over in england, that happened when the prime minister resigned there. maria: it's interesting what's happening across the world, dagen. dagen: that's the reason why you're not seeing the sell off across the markets and a 63 governments since world war ii in italy, so in terms of the political turmoil in that nation it's just not that surprising. maria: they are used to it. kevin: better than cleveland browns and quarterback. maria: is there a question about whether or not the euro has failed yet? >> i think it's almost impossible to have not monetary policy and fiscal aligning.

6:05 am
vice president elect mike pence weighed on the process. >> with regard to secretary of state we have been with the list and growing a bit. he's looking for the best men and women to advance the agenda. >> at the moment there's not a fine identity finalist only because he will interview with additional candidates really this week. more than 4. who knows how many finalists there would be. it's a big decision and nobody should rush through it. maria: today president elect donald trump will formally announce homination of retired general james mattis for defense secretary. joining us right now bree, thank you so much for joining the conversation. what are the strengths of the new candidates being considered for secretary of state in your view you've got john huntsman
6:06 am
looking at serious contender, john bolton was on the list already, what do you see as the most important strength? >> sure, well, i think john huntsman will share a lot of the same ideologies and views that donald trump would. i could see those two working together rather well. i think it's interesting to point out that ceo of exxon has holdings in over 50 countries and has traveled in over 50 countries. i think he's familiar and has diplomatic relations in a lot of the countries and familiar with international trade law. there's certainly a lot of interesting benefits or interesting positives that these names are bringing to the list. maria: really interesting. >> it's interesting that the two names huntsman bring an international flavor very different than the others.
6:07 am
huntsman knows asia pacific more than anybody being former embassador specially with what's been going on with china. i think he's opening the comono before he makes a choice? as a democrat, i like a guy like romney and i like a mansion, from a business perspective, you to look and say they may bring a different avenue with respect to trade. we have to not be so protectionist in our trade going forward. maria: dagen, what do you think in. >> rudy giuliani with his work overseas might be hting at this point. giuliani insist he never lobbied the u.s. federal government on behalf of anyone. that's probably one of the sticking points when looking at rudy giuliani. maria: he's been criticized for that.
6:08 am
business guy. >> very interesting because he's singularly focused on one industry. maybe looking outside of your traditional people because he's been criticized with a little bit about mnuchin. maria: he has important relationships across the world. >> could cross party lines as well. kevin: continental resources ceo. it's interesting that general petraeus is still out there because that would make third general in his administration. we had eisenhower say worry about the militarization complex and that's a big tenure for trump during relation and was saying that the president didn't
6:09 am
do that. maria: markets are higher this morning, are we surprise that we are seeing a rally in reaction as opposed to the hysteria about brexit and trump presidency, different reaction this morning? kevin: absolutely not. this has been telegraphed on the market and circled on everybody's calendar. we saw overnight trading on election night and we see the euros rebounding from lower. they are worried about april and the french election what's going to hapn, that would be a big mover to the market should that happen. dagen: equities, bonds sold ahead of this. the polls were largely right. people expected the vote to go this way. i will resign. maria: loud and clearly. i want to point out that president-elect donald trump is expected to nominate betty carson as the head of the
6:10 am
housing and urban development, hud, will be getting more info on that. we are just getting this across and we will bring you more information as it developed. trump fired a series of tweets this morning. look at this, the u.s. is going to substantially reduce taxes on businesses, this was the first tweet, any company, leaves country, builds factory in another country and thinks will sell parties in the united states without retribution is wrong. there will be tax of soon strong border of 345% for these companies. this is coming after trump's announcement with carrier to keep about a thousand jobs here in the united states. bree, a lot of people have a lot of problems with this. i can understand creating a very attractive, you know, environment in the u.s. for companies to want to do business here, but to warn and threaten companies if you leave you're
6:11 am
going face 35%, that's where people stop short and say, you don't want to be bullying them. >> it's because we just have an oppressive tax system in the country. my parents own a small manufacturing country and i can tell you the things that are killing them it's making it more difficult to stay in busines are taxes, right, so every single year in california they have to pay a property tax on all of the machines that they own which can be quite costly and right now other obamacare they have to fork doug in order to help for health care that's subpar now. i think it's important to talk and donald trump is right. i hope that he continues to roll back a lot of the regulations and roll back a lot of the oppressive taxes that we have on businesses and i hope that he
6:12 am
decides to take a most positive approach instead of taking the punitive approach for punishing them for leaving? >> i will just say that when you have 35% tariffs and thing like that, we are going to have corporate tax reform. he's going to look at repatriation. what benefitses and what credits they get. we are going to have tax reform. this should play into tax reforms. i don't think this gives us what we want to do. we want free markets. maria: i guess he's trying to make a statement with carrier. i can't imagine he's going to be on the phone with every company -- dagen: 35% eventual this will change markets. maria: they are going to raise
6:13 am
prices. dagen: hurt it is people and companies that by their very product. maria: that's the a good point. bree thank you so much for weighing in. protestors of the north dakota pipeline celebrating as the obama administration slams the brakes on $3.8 billion project. what letter to government regulators reveal about its plans to go autonomous. that's next back in a minute.
6:14 am

6:17 am
well, out in california the death toll continues to climb in one of the deadliest fires in oakland's history. at least 343 people are dead after flames ripped through a 2-story warehouse during a dance party friday night. police have not identified all of the victims but some of them are investigators, investigators have come through 40% of the wreckage. the nose gear on united express plane collided yesterday. 55 people on board, only one minor ankle injury reported but the victim refused victim because she was worried about making a connecting flight. the gear was directed to houston to monterrey. it's working on the technology
6:18 am
to a letter to national traffic safety administration. the letter didn't go into specifics but talked about the benefits of automated vehicles of preventing millions of crashes. apple has a lot of work to go ahead of the competition. you have google who has been working for years. you've got uber trying it out in parts of the country as well with their tests, so everybody is getting on the manbandwagon. dagen: driverless is better than any money behind the wheel. maria: who may be testing. dagen: never puts seat belt until the car was in gear and moving. >> i'm not running to it. maria: i'm not running to it
6:19 am
either. you're a drone guy. first, populist victory in italy leading to resignation to mateo renzi, populism across the world. one airliners employers are sick and tired, literally when america's new uniforms are not taking off with employees, they are blaming their uniforms for getting sick, back in a minute. liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. i just snapped a photo and got an estimate in 24 hours. my insurance company definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance
6:20 am
this is where i trade andrs. manage my portfolio. since i added futures, i have access to the oil markets and gold markets. okay. i'm plugged into equities- trade confirmed- and i have global access 24/7. meaning i can do what i need to do, then i can focus on what i want to do. visit to see what adding futures can do for you.
6:21 am
6:22 am
maria: welcome back. big news over the weekend. mateo renzi announcing resignation after voters denounced proposals of reform. take a look at what's happening
6:23 am
throughout the euro zone. actually we are seeing stocks up with the dax index in germany one and two quarters percent and ftse half a percent. u.s. futures indicating a strong rally. markets are rallying in the face of this rejection. nasdaq and s&p very strong, 4500 a piece. joining us right now at euro pacific capital john brown and chairman ceo of capital advisers michael joining us. good to see you, gentlemen, thank you so much for joining us. >> good morning, maria. maria: john, you're a wonderful student of the euro zone. what's your reaction of what we are seeing take place this morning? >> well, it's similar to brexit but certainly not the same as brexit. unlike brexit this result was widely forecast.
6:24 am
it's antiestablishment but it is not necessarily antieuropan union or the euro. it has created uncertainty, certainly the italian banks, down 7%, that's about 98% off of its high. there's uncertainty. money has flowed in euro from italy into germany. i think a lot of money flows out of it into the other markets, even britain and currency in britain is up 1.24 and i think this is what is happening even to the united states, money has already flowed and it's continuing to flow out. maria: flow out of the u.s.? >> no, out of italy.
6:25 am
maria: right. finding a home in the u.s. michael, you said that sort of exactly what you said as well, michael is saying that the banks are going to have to face reality. this stops them from moving forward. >> i think that's right. first off, i agree with john, this was well forecasted in the market for some time which is why i don't think you're going to see much turbulent in both european markets and u.s. markets. it's been protracted. the u.s. and many other countries have solved problems quickly in the past and italy continues to lump along. but eventually they have to address it because they are capital starved and the banks cannot survive in this condition. >> at the end of the day the biggest winner continues to be in the euro zone, germany. as the euro continues to weaken,
6:26 am
all they do is keep being the beneficiary. everyone around germany -- kevin: germany's economic locomotive of europe actually. two trading partners are china and the united states. they are not overlevered. they'reover levered andover extended right now. main beneficiary will be germany . >> you're asking me? >> yes, john.
6:27 am
>> the federal government wasn't antieu zone, internal vote against the establishment. it has opened up with the resignation of prime minister, an election, that opens up the opportunity for the five-star movement to come in, he's definitely antieu and antieurope. that opens up now. 18% nonperforming loans in italian banks, in britain it's 1.5% and in america 2% and in france down to 5%. so it gives you some real figures as to how the problem is for italian banks and the possibility of -- that's why the money is moving out into germany maybe even london.
6:28 am
maria: to we will see impact in u.s. banks? >> if the antieuropean union party get in and hold sway in a coalition, it would prevent the italian government getting funds and having bonds bought by the european centralback and therefore unable to this massive wound of totally insolvent banks. those banks are international. that will affect our banks. we will leave it there. thank you so much for weighing in on this important issue this morning. still to come, china on the receiving end of president-elect trump's latest tweet storm. how he's defending the phone call with the taiwan ease president. the report that is high-end retailer could be acquiring
6:29 am

6:32 am
of housing and urban developing. dr. carson issuing nomination. i feel like i can make a contribution particularly by strengthening communities that are most in need. we have much work to do in enhancing every aspect of our nation and ensuring that our nation's housing needs our met. president-elect trump has not taken office obviously but making waves in the scene. latest tirade taking aim at china to take a call f president of taiwan. >> i think most americans and frankly most leaders around the world know if what it was and it's all part and parcel. i think you're going to see in a president-elect donald trump a willingness to engage the world but engage the world on america's term. maria: very latest this morning as the president elect plays defense. a 14-person killed in wild fires in tennessee this morning.
6:33 am
dolly parton is planning a teleton for the victims. clothing controversy at 30,000 feet, why american airline employees are demanding changes to the company's knew uniform. they say the uniforms are getting them sick. another populist victory in europe and the markets are up. italians are rejecting political reforms and the country's prime minister has resigned. european markets are rallying, take a look. concerns are still remaining about the health of the banking system and the impact there, the stocks are sharply lower. however, not stopping a big rally in germany. 154 points. the euro is off of the lows against the dollar but it is plainly and firmly in negative territory. the dollar is higher this morning and the euro is down. futures looking for a big rally
6:34 am
for stocks this morning. the u.s. is taking a cue from europe. the dow industrials to open up 80 points. dido for the nasdaq, it's up 23 points right now. in asia different story there. worst performer was china, shanghai composite down one and a quarter percent. parts of hawaii under a winter storm this morning. wild weather in paradise island coming up. trump versus china. he took a call from the leader of taiwan on friday but republican leaders defended the conversation, watch. >> under the old establishment, the old timid state department, the old rules, we would have turned down the phone call on the grounds we didn't want to offend the dictatorship in beijing. if she wants to talk to him, i will talk to them. >> strike to go me that president obama would reach out to a murdering dictator in cuba
6:35 am
and be held as a hero and president-elect trump takes a courtesy from a democratic-elected president of taiwan and becomes something of a thing from the media. maria: this reaction sunday morning as you just saw trump slams china for keeping currency low. this is what he tweeted overnight. did china ask us if it was okay to devalue currency making it hard for our companies to compete, heavily tax products, going in to their country, the u.s. does not tax them or to build a massive military complex in the middle of the south china sea, i don't think so, he wrote. joining me right now former nebraska senator bob kerry. senator good to see you. thank you so much for joining us. first time a president has spoken to the leader in taiwan since 1979. your reaction. >> it's been a part of a general policy of engagement with china.
6:36 am
it's a remarkable change if it's intentional, he intentionally wanted to change the policy towards taiwan. the case to do that, to make the call, it was an associate of mr. trump who arranged for the call. so as i said, if it's intentional, that's okay. if it's one of the deals, let's go ahead and do it because i want to do things differently, it becomes a problem. to have to wait for the reaction of china. it's fair enough to be tough on twitter but if china reacts, what do we do? maria: how might they react? >> a lot more aggressive militarily in the south china sea. they've been aggressive in the south china sea and do you really want a war with china, i would answer the question no. to the other tweet that he put out, 35% tariff on american companies that go overseas, i mean, his own daughter buys everything overseas. does that mean 35% on nike
6:37 am
shoes. i favor cutting the corporate tax and cutting regulation, the infrastructure stuff that he's talk about. this doesn't make it easier to get that done. this makes it much more difficult. maria: dagen. dagen: what's interesting what peter navarro, one of trump advisers has been on the program and he pushed for cabinet-level visits to taiwan and kind of the u.s. bowing in the wall street journal editorial page so it's not out of the realm that this was intentional. it's hilarious every time trump breaks with protocol. that's what his campaign was about. what he says on twitter, i'm kind of -- >> this is not an inconsequential change in policy. well, this -- i'm going to change the color of the carpeting in the white house. this is a significant change in
6:38 am
foreign policy. maria: is it a change or is it just a phone call? >> that's a good question. i don't know what the twitter messages -- maria: just telling china, putting pressure in china? >> does it put pressure on china? i don't know. if you want to change policy and put pressure on china, my problem is you're not even president yet, you're going create a reaction that you're going to have to deal with sometimes. kevin: i do think it does put pressure on china and one of the reasons why is you see president trump met with the japanese and one of the big focal points is the south china sea that you brought up and he takes this call as well. he's sending a direct message to china and they are hearing it loud and clear and the message with the tariffs. should he start doing tariff policy against them which wilbur ross was they are not going to do tariffs.
6:39 am
>> i keep hearing that. maria: he's using it as a tool. >> it's one thing to put tariff on companies that have jobs overseas. it's not -- it's not just i'm trying to negotiate with companies, declaration. he's made it before. he believes in putting a tariff on manufacturing product that is come back to the united states. maria: that would be a big problem. >> terrible policy and you imagine sitting in a board of a company trying to decide to do this -- kevin: you remember mario -- >> what does he have to do with it? >> he will to whatever it takes and he didn't have to do one thing. maria: he's using this -- kevin: rhetoric. [inaudible] >> republicans correctly went after president obama when he exceeded the authority with executive orders and now you're defending a similar action.
6:40 am
it creates tremendous uncertainty in corporate america who has investments overseas. and it makes it more difficult to get a difficult agenda as a democrat i support cutting corporate taxes, as a democrat i support regulation, but this makes it harder, not easier. he's basically embracing bernie sanders' message. maria: right. is he talking to companies that wants to create -- the s&p 500, all 500 companies have businesses overseas. >> we do have a corporate tax that encourages american corporations to consider leaving the united states of america. we saw monsato trying to buy singenta. so what happens? that's okay. donald trump is not going after bear. he's going after monsato for
6:41 am
importing to the united states. it's okay if you're a foreign country for importing in the united states but if you're a u.s. company, that's a problm. maria: does he understand this, dagen, the implications of 35% tariff? dagen: if actually applied, no. it's a very dangerous threat to american companies because the real key to keeping jobs in the united states is ensuring that american companies are profitable and if a ceo decides that i need to make the lass in my shoes -- if costs go up, it hurts the end consumer and that's the -- maria: as a businessman he understands this. >> the best way to attack china is actually to be protpp because you are trading with all the asian pacific rim. maria: he was selected because
6:42 am
he pushed back on tpp. the truth is to have a protectionist environment is not necessarily the best way to go about it. >> particularly fox needs to push back on this proposal. it's not good when you say, he doesn't really mean it. it's a signal of some kind o. he said it. it's just a tool. dagen: it's not a -- maria: declaratory statement. >> you can't let it stand. >> when they say he uses 25 million followers in twitter to get message out. you can't have it both ways. this is how he gets his message out and you have to take it at face value. >> it's been a pleasure. >> is there a reason why we are on the left side here? >> not to the viewers, we are not. maria: country legend dolly

6:53 am
maria: welcome back. are malls really dying or just changing? it's that time of the year when retailers are at their busiest but with consumers turning to online shopping, in-store purchases or buildings that those occupy becoming a thing of the past. liz can with us and the vice chair of ieac kenneth. how would you characterize malls right now, kenneth, what's the state of the retail real estate industry? >> in closed malls are one component of the overall retail shopping in the united states which includes super market, shopping centers, my company, we focus on street and urban retrailer, city open air and overall, retail is doing very well, our retailers are very happy and it's been a good season. maria: liz, when we look at how people are shopping, we keep coming up with this idea that malls are less and less of an
6:54 am
option or, you know, a desire for people, how you see it? >> i think it's a misnomer. excess of 90% of the purchases are still made in physical occasions. it's really a function of the fact that at the holidays, your best option is to go to shopping mall and really where we talk depends on where you are as to whether or not you meet the needs of the market that you're in. maria: in urban centers, malls don't work in new york city or in la, or do they? >> they work in chicago. maria: okay. >> northbridge, urban, enclosed shopping centers. maria: where are you seeing most activity in terms of retail real estate business going into the holiday right now? >> what you're going to see it's about retailers recognizing that they need a brick and mortar presence whether it's on certain
6:55 am
key streets in chicago or in your local shopping center. so they will use online as a piece of and as part of converging with their bricks and mortar but we have many tentans who work only traditional online now coming into property. maria: they like to go and feel and try on. >> one-size doesn't fit all. they browse online and then go to the store or they'll go into the store and execute online. for the retailer what they need to make sure is providing opportunity whether it's online or bricks and mortar. the bricks and mortar component, it's not all. it's critical. maria: you have to be everywhere. >> the retailers are going to do good with the consumers are the ones that can access customers online, in the store and really
6:56 am
provide them with the experience they are looking for. maria: one trend that we are seeing office spaces are turning into industrial spaces. like even amazon. they are not building bookstores but a space where they can hold goods and make it easier for their own, you know, transporting of goods. >> right. bottom line is great real estate in the right hands with the right capitalization gets transformed and that's the beauty of our business. it always is changing but as long as the right people are doing the right things, there's use for it and that's an example. maria: characterize international real estate for us in general right now. a lot of people say that prices have gotten away from them. it's expensive. we are in this bubble-like mentality, how do you see it? >> in the short run, interest rates matter and the markets
6:57 am
sometimes confuse which were publicly traded or bonds were not. in the long-term, if we are in an improving economy and that's why interest rates are going up, then that has proven over any extended period of time that real estate is a very good investment. maria: you don't think higher interest rate is going to choke off the activity that we are seeing in real estate investment trusts? >> i don't. we use very little leverage. it's not going to affect our borrowing costs. we like that. if there's economic growth, that's great. maria: quick, liz, do you think we are going to have a good holiday? >> the number has gone up to 53 over 31 last year. maria: we will leave it there. we will be right back. designed to let couples sleep together in individualized comfort. sleepiq technology tells you how you slept and what adjustments you can make.

[indiscernible] who knows how many finalists there will be. it will be a big decision. >> the very latest on the presidential transition coming up this morning. protesters are claiming victory in north dakota today. the army corps of engineers denied the permit on the pipeline. they are slim in the decision. he's calling it big government decision-making at its worst. we have the latest details here. italians rejecting political reform. the european markets are rallying on the news. concerns are out there. the banks in europe our down this morning. that's keeping any gains in checks. investors speculate that it will leave italy. we are watching the currency markets.
7:02 am
it's now higher. this has been is been a volatile situation here. the euro was down. has completely reversed course and there you see 1.07 on the dollar. they're taking a cue from the european markets. the dow is set to open and another all-time high 19,000 245. better than one half of 1%. in kate average. down almost 1%. the search continues in the tragic oakland warehouse fire. at least it's 33 bodies have been recovered. overdraft roles. it's what the government is doing to protect customers coming up. what the ceo says.
7:03 am
all of the stories coming up this morning. >> it's like raising the roof for you. maybe my favorite followers well now quit trolling me for a day or two. bob carey took it. he is getting slammed on a twitter this morning. because of the threat of the tariff. taking the call and then of course this is what went on with europe. rejection. trump has a incredible humor.
7:04 am
he can go with those that want to leave. and a whole smorgasbord of stuff because we haven't had tax reform in a long time. and everybody wants it. i think as opposed to his tactical report approach. he could actually negotiate with companies that want to leave and then he can leave it to the states. >> i think he can get it done. it's just how in the execution of it. you start humoring companies and talk about 85% tariffs again the markets reacting positively to the idea of a broad policy. but when you start antibusiness and start sounding like you can use the humor the markets will react. i think he has the ability to
7:05 am
maneuver there. and we had one of the biggest stewards of global companies business here with us. tom farley will weigh in on all of this. with the former vice president nominee. huntsman on that list. a potential secretary of state. the search is widening. trump has expanded his list for the key cabinet position of secretary of state. the former utah governor. also been flooded. here he is on his selection process. that's just taking a little bit longer. everything doesn't have to happen all at once. making a smart decision. we will see where that goes.
7:06 am
let's bring in the member of the trump transition. it's good to see you. we definitely want to get to this 35% whether or not he is overstepping. but first give us this take. i think this is one of the more important cabinet positions. and a few of us were all pretty vocal when it came to our comments about the former governor mitt romney. the supporters would prefer he was certainly on the shortlist. i think it's a critical position. at this point he will be making the decision. that doesn't mean the process is not moving along quickly. more than half of it is now filled.
7:07 am
way ahead of anyone's anticipated schedule. we should all respect that on the secretary of state. that was intentional. that was not a mistake. donald trump as he was not politically correct at all times i don't expect he's get a pay much attention to protocol. this is a time when he needs to get things done. he took a call from the president of taiwan obviously he knew the call was coming in and see anything wrong with that. it's just them being hung up on this protocol. donald trump will be a
7:08 am
different kind of president. i think america finds it very refreshing that in his gut he's can it do what he wants. it's something we've have for a long time. that doesn't you been incredibly loyal. you are a good speaker. for president-elect trump. you took a shot at governor romney. now when you see this new group and then these people
7:09 am
none of them were from trump either. the secretary of state has to be the right person. at the end of the date we want to make sure what the most important role as secretary of state. would you like to see outside of loyalist on the rest of the list. what i would point out he was out there searching for the cameras in the microphone in a way to slam president-elect trump at every turn. so others who may not had supported him. she wasn't like mitt romney just looking for every minute to get in front of a microphone can you give some color about the strengths that he will bring is the newest
7:10 am
cabinet member. they joke around and say it doesn't take a brain surgeon. 's president-elect trump overstepping with his 35% threat. we have to do what it takes to get manufacturing jobs back with you to make stuff here in america. we have to have manufacturing jobs. well have a level playing field. those jobs need to come back. not everyone is can be a stem scientist. those are manufacturing jobs. we need the new base.
7:11 am
do you worry about the 35% tax. so we can pay down our $20 trillion in debt. if we can create six job for every manufactured job that comes back. where is this coming from. i believe we have to bring it back. i'm a big proponent whether you call it a tariff or whatever it is. i'm all for it. chris collins joining us there. i tell you rejected at political reform yesterday the prime minister is now resigning. what it means for the european union. coming up.
7:12 am
stay with us.
7:13 am
7:14 am
see 133 people dead in a tragic warehouse fire in
7:15 am
oakland, california. in oakland mayor said that a criminal investigation is now underway. this was a late night dance party on friday night. people attended the party are still missing. authorities confirm some of those victims were teenagers. speemac we have now started to recover and identify the victims who are minors. we do have some children in the ages of 17 years old possibly younger not sure. >> it was was home to an artist community. they have several days of work ahead of them. family and friends are desperately waiting for answers this morning. matteo renzi resigned. it would've overhauled the legislator.
7:16 am
the populaces i've start movement said it is now ready to govern italy. nearly 2 million pounds of chicken products have been recalled. some of us are ready to eat chicken may have been undercooked. there is no reports so far but the recall has been classified as a class one by the u.s. department of agriculture. there is a reasonable pop that abe and but that eats it could get sick. >> i interrupted from the top. here are of men. go. the family came in first it was followed arrival rounded
7:17 am
out the top five at the box office. you probably can see it more in more demand for movies. back to you. all good things must come to an end. were checking markets and next. how the president-elect and his pick for supreme court could shift the balance of power. we are back in a minute. ways wi.
7:18 am
7:19 am
especially in my business. with slow internet from the phone company, you can't keep up. you're stuck, watching spinning wheels and progress bars
7:20 am
until someone else scoops your story. switch to comcast business. with high-speed internet up to 10 gigabits per second. you wouldn't pick a slow race car. then why settle for slow internet? comcast business. built for speed. built for business.
7:21 am
maria: welcome back. markets are continuing the record run. the dow industrial set to open and another all-time high. following the italian know about. the cabinet picks. joy to me right now with more is the president of the new york stock exchange. tom, good to see you. thank you so much for joining us. what the heck do you think is powering this and do you think that it continues? early on i was expecting the market to rally because of the policy of lower taxes and rollback of regulations is that still the underpinning of this market? >> you distill my thunder maria. i think the thing that surprised on election night was not only the trump victory and a fairly overwhelming victory but what happened in the senate so when we all woke up the next morning to this idea of texas ago from 35 but
7:22 am
down considerably and regulations could be rolled back what really jolted the market and continued to this day. >> the president-elect has been very vocal about his idea that really back regulations is even more important than lowering taxes because this is a pro growth agenda but in a tweet yesterday he says this. there would be a 35% tax on businesses that leave the united states. you are home to so many global companies that have a business is overseas what is your take on the 35% tariff threat. donald has said a lot of things that ultimately rollback or water down. we have around 500 consumer companies on the the new york stock exchange. the idea of massive tariffs clearly would not be welcomed. but when you look at the tax plan as a whole there is still
7:23 am
a sense of optimism that some of these more concerning ideas with respect to trade won't come to for ration. if they do i think you'll see a different view from the markets. >> he basically said this is a tool and we have a lot of tools and this is one tool to use to get companies to give america a second look. what happens with a 35% tariff. does that mean products that and go higher. does it mean they get pressured. the number one issue on the minds of ceos if you are to judge and jury and you could change one thing about the environment its corporate taxes writ large. the fact that were having a conversation about this in the united states it is important. we are can have to work through the details we had 500 consumer companies.
7:24 am
it will be looked at very carefully. i think the markets are optimistic. they are indicated up. we make yet again had all-time highs. for the moment we are at a good place. you and i sat here earlier in the year. to begin with the worst beginning of a year. i started to look back. i remembered the first two weeks of january 16 we were down $2 trillion. and now we are were ending the year at record highs. i came into this year with lots of ipos lined up. this is can be a big year. we have 130 ipos. in those first two weeks of the year really leveled the calendar.
7:25 am
so what a 17 look like. do you think things pick up in 17. it looks very good. the volatility is low and stable. the pipeline is significant. even though this year it was slow in last year it was was relatively slow we have some really great ipos. the u.s. visit which is more of a commercial consumer/ billion dollar plus ipo. it's not dead and hasn't been dead the last two years and
7:26 am
there is reason for considerable optimism. when it's healthy it's a great thing. it's more money to create jobs. everybody thought it was a new day. i will say we are getting the really great tech companies. we talked about the largest 25 ipos every single one has been there. that was beyond two years ago. i was a very difficult ipo since that day. you must be schmoozing though the management right now.
7:27 am
i don't refer to this i spent a lot of time. do you think it strange that technology has not been part of this huge rally. all of these groups are up on the trump victory except tech. i've actually asked around to some of the smart people. sometimes when i don't understand it bothers me a little bit. the common narrative about the views on immigration could somehow her to tech. particularly what's going on and i would not had thought that we would see such a difficult trading. maybe that is the answer for europe today. germany is up one and one and half percent. do you think it would come out of italy and go into germany on the snow referendum.
7:28 am
quite frankly i'm surprised. you're right. i feel so good about those things. really quickly. the most important issue that you're looking at. it's just restoring confidence. it's been two years of not with standing and that 10% increase. we've a surprise devaluation a little over a year ago that really rocked markets. that led into this year. it's just helping to bring a sense of calm and hopefully that will result into bringing retail investors back into the market. do you think this rally continues what are you getting
7:29 am
in terms of the sentiment. i think it just sitting in the room out here these are all three people we know personally. and that is that sent on the floor also. were putting together a cabinet that can help lead -- lead the country going forward. there is more coming up. the deny they deny the government report. with the details next. we will show how it affects you next.
7:30 am
7:31 am
7:32 am
c1 walk welcome back happy monday everyone. it is monday december 5. your top stories right now. 7:30 a.m. on east coast. donald trump's cabinet takes shape. he plans to nominate ben carson as administrator of housing and develop it. they weigh other key decisions. as well as who will replace the late anthony scalia on the bench. >> he has been very methodical
7:33 am
and has looked at first-class people and i think generally has picked people who are can be tough in intelligence and have a lot of experience. trump has reportedly narrowed his supreme court pics. we will bring them to you. the japanese prime minister set to make history later this month. he becomes the first leader of japan to visit pearl harbor since his attack on the unit seats at naval base back in 1941. he will visit the area at that end of the month. the new rules of that will allow over drafting and prepaid debit cards. for some customers. the country's prime minister.
7:34 am
look at this rally in germany. it's basically telling you that investors are expecting money to come out of italy and find a home in germany. a lot of that major banks talking about relocating from the uk to germany after britain left the european union. the dollar was higher but has been quite volatile. now the euro is higher. as you will see the dollar is mostly higher. with the exception of the euro. stocks are looking higher here. look at the dow jones industrial average. nasdaq expected to be up 20 points. indonesia overnight. markets were lower across the board there. the worst performer as you see is shanghai. down one quarter of a%. the dismal performance that put the québec back on the bench.
7:35 am
we will bring it to you. the obama administration denied a permit for the north dakota pipeline construction. we are on the ground right now in north dakota with the details. jeff, good morning to you. see mchugh can't see it because it's dark. you will see an extraordinary collection and coalition of people that had mass here in north dakota to oppose this pipeline. it is behind me where there are teepees intense and makeshift structures. it's extraordinary to see. yesterday this place was a scene of jubilation when upright flying protesters without win in the decision to reroute this pipeline. that's what they had been asking for yesterday the army corps coming through insane that they want to reroute. they ordered a halt to
7:36 am
construction. well that be a short-lived when and what will the protesters do in relation to that. will they believe the government or will they recognize the possibility that the incoming trump administration could overturn it all. the law enforcement have been fairly tough on these protesters. at one point trying to disperse them by spraying them with water can in the cold temperatures well that happen again if they decide to stay on here in fact will they decide to stay on. those are the questions that we need to answer here today and that's what will play out today. it is an important situation to watch play out. will get back to you throughout the day care. judge, good to see you. so president-elect trump has a previously confirmed previously confirmed support of this project.
7:37 am
we know what his plans are for energy. he wants to tap into the resources. what actions could he take to get the pipeline back online. ordinarily these are decisions that are made by full-time government civil servants immune from political decisions but when washington reached in and said we agree with the demonstrators even though the sink is mostly completed is underneath a body of water which is adjacent to the land of this needy and -- native american tribe. the treaty does not cover anything like this. maria: is just the last mile and a half. they have conservative that they were granted in rescinded because the administration have a second look at this or
7:38 am
because they sympathize with these people. as a political operative yourself and a friend i present obama. what is he doing this now. we all know what donald trump wants to do in terms of energy. and a spike in a do and two months. this is becoming incredibly heightened. and they were supposedly on monday it was good to be d-day on whether they proceeded or didn't. there is a lot going on here between the indian reservation the concerns about being there water basin. and in some ways it's kind of like keystone away from the coalition aspect because for those who recall the first person to say no to keystone was a republican nast nebraska governor there are some environmental issues to be concerned. i was a supporter of xl. on this it looks political
7:39 am
that the demonstration doesn't want approval of this on their hands. so they're putting it in the hands of the next president. what a waste of time. it was the army of engineers that came in. he may say look at other alternatives. we don't know he's gonna do on this. this was the army corps of engineers. even though he owns shares of stock. the president as we all know now is exempt from the conflict of interest statutes that regulate everybody else that works for the federal government. i think he has indicated in favor of this. it would take a phone call to reverse what happened.
7:40 am
c1 that's why i am questioning it. he is already said this is one of his four pillars of his economic plan this goes along with the current administration's policies. they want to keep telling them. and they have no incentive to. i respect that. if they want to keep their policies and positions in line with how they've govern the last eight years. it is everywhere. in the hollywood community in terms of supporting these protesters and this native american tribe. the veterans came in over the last four days and said they are supporting. i'm not sure where president-elect trump will be. he will become more informed and that he will make a decision. in terms of the water cannons being shot at them. do you blame him for wanting this to put it in his heat.
7:41 am
i think he made a decision and now the other president has a right to overturn a bunch of his decisions. the supreme court is gonna look different on the president-elect trump. we could find you very soon. trump hinted about announcing a nomination just last week when he spoke with sean hannity. watch. we will appoint very soon. i'm down to three or four people. they are terrific people. highly respected. brilliant people and we will be announcing that pretty soon as well. and judge you know them. they leased a batch of names back in september. listing 21 potential names to fill the bench. leading contenders are judge diane sykes.
7:42 am
how can it shift it. >> it when it shift it because he would be replacing justice scalia was somewhat of like mind. they are appointed by republicans. abortion, gay marriage. filling the night seat. it means at the same the same thing today after it was understood. that was a radical difference.
7:43 am
does it evolve. is there any chance the president there is no recess. he was the most conservative nominee by democrat. he stopped hearing cases from the day the announcement was made and reserved hearing cases the day after election day. he's pretty much taken himself out of it. this would be big news. and he would tell me now that i'm a fox contributor.
7:44 am

>> is it i think it is mixed that is what you expect from a president-elect low in some sense is an independent donald trump is not a conventional republican he is reflected in some of his early choices some of the people who supported him, but others like general mattis were not political at all i think that is a first rate appointment, i am encouraged by the fact he is taking time in this selection of secretary of state because it says that he understands the president-elect understands his he relations our relations with the rest of the world matter a lot to us, he wants to change them but not try -- put a bubble over united states, so this this process has been encouraging, look, he got elected, and i think all of us and this is part of what we're saying here no labels whatever your label you want the new president to

succeed if he succeeds america sections what we are trying to create a place for let's get together work with the new president, and solve some of our problems, and see some opportunities, to get things done. >> i want to talk about some of the things that are being questioned, obviously governor huntsman you were ambassador to china the president-elect is on defenseive after call. >> yesterday slammed china said did china ask us if to being devalue their currency making it ladder for our country to compete heavily tax our products the u.s. doesn't tax them or build a massive military complex in middle of the south china sea i don't think so he says given your experience serving cupboards to china under president obama what is your take what we have heard from donald trump. >> i have worked china issues with republicans, i have
8:12 am
worked them with democrats. i have been involved in this relationship for a lot of years. and this is the first time i have ever seen a real businessperson who understands leverage a fair deal a level-playing field people talk about it i sense a president trump is going to enter the scene, really understanding that you need he leverage and a sense of power, in the relationship with china. and so if you want to look at the intellectual property 100-billion-dollar problem united states has done nothing about it in recent years i sense he might be somebody going to step up try to fix that would be a good thing the problem with indigenous innovation within domestic market where u.s. firms have been crowded out procurement joint ventures deal making in general deference to local integrity bad deal tough for companies trying to compete there my sense president trump
8:13 am
will deal with that head-on trying to get more space in relationship with taiwan isn't new has been done before i remember when a president by the name of clinton, back in june of 1995 issued a visa to former taiwan president, sent him allowed him to go to cornell to get graduation speech china responded sending miflz over northern taiwan city, then president weighed in found himself in a box we sent two carrier battle groups that is another example of democrats trying to -- >> that is right i was there taiwan is a democracy they have done everything u.s. would like our allies to do, they have become a market economy become a democracy great trading partners foolish to me president of the united states members of congress not even supposed to talk to leadership of taiwan, and so frankly, i think it is
8:14 am
refreshing, that president trump a had this call took call from the president of taiwan creates a new reality for the chinese to deal with. >> i understand, i want to ask you about 35% tariff you are onboard corp board do you think that is sense bullying companies to stay in america what is your take on what he is saying to companies who want to take business back jobs outside u.s. -- >> i think the message should be as opposed to just talking about a 35% tariff this happens as part of a broader strategy a broader strategy of tax reform domestically regulatory reform if you go to corporate board rooms invested around say this is one aspect of broader strategy i want you on my team i want you to play ball i think a winning message. >> gentlemen thank you very much joe leadman john huntsman good to see you both we'll be right back stay with us. when they've been viewed
