gop health care is getting another shot at life as the president signaled renewed focus to replace obama cared. will this slow down the timeline for tax reform? here's what president trump and americans for tax reform president over norquist told me during last week's interviews. >> obama cared is a total mass. we are saving tremendous amounts of money on health care when we get this done number one. most importantly will have great health care and all of the savings goes into the tax. if you don't do that, you can put any savings into the tax cuts and tax reform. >> by holding things up for two weeks they may have killed reforming health care. they could permanently damage. >> why do you think this tax reform getting harder?
6:05 am
once you appear to place carried back $900 billion to just overturn in terms of taxes for tax cuts. whether or not tax reform takes a real back seat here. it is confusing. it's not clear whether or not they would go into tax reform bill. what is clear is the one thing they can't screw up. it's one reason and repeal and replace and i think it's smart to repay that henry changed the entire lawmakers on their heels as a wise man once said if you don't like was beset, change the conversation. that's a president trump is doing and it just makes sense. >> you wonder how much tougher it becomes in terms of repeal and replace. but if they can't come to an
6:06 am
agreement? >> headset attached apartment getting a quicker win, you can probably get a quicker when it taxes. come back to help care. it seems like the administration is something to jumpstart policy agenda. we did that again to health care. why not just go for tax refund, get something done, get the american public behind you and come back as a trickier issue of health care reform. >> i guess why not do it. as i said earlier, so many people specifically repealing replace obama cared. >> allowing the republican plan to fail, switching gears keeps everyone on their heels. that's what he said he is >> the answer is you don't need to do tax reform first. do something --
6:07 am

6:08 am
stock markets the all-time highs up in anticipation of this legislation being passed. >> yesterday we had a member of the freedom caucus on a "sunday morning futures" program. he was optimistic something would get done. this is ron desantis. what do you think? what strategy with the white house did it take to get the republican majority behind the health care overhaul? >> i think that it is important. i don't know, to the point that was said earlier as to why we doing this, where pages focusing on tax care, why are we repaired again? this isn't what the market wants. i would totally disagree. it's very clear this is a voters want. i not see the harm in being able to do that. >> one of the things the congressman said as he wants to make sure premiums come down. we all know premiums are up in the double and triple digits in 2017. 116%. he was talking about budget.
6:09 am
i watched the interview. we didn't even get the cbo numbers that came out. they came out with her health care plan. they had no idea how much it was going to cost them at the savings are going to be and they tried rushing it through. if you can't just get elected and in 100 days come out with a great plan that will work for everybody because the democrats are going to get behind you. they are looking for anything to attack iran. in 24 million people lose their health care coverage, what are you going to do? >> usc premium increases for obama cared. that is is really rolling out june, july, august of this year. they censor my strategic respective why not come back to that conversation later in the year with the tailwind of bad news than in the meantime work on tax reform. at the end of the day what americans want his job creation more than anything else. tax reform is what gets you there.

6:24 am
i think in the long term this is in a huge effect on orcas. maybe the short-term action here. >> i disagree. i think it's a bit worried because of not necessarily how they do it. it's when they do it in how they telegraph it. and ben bernanke was talking about cutting back quantitative demands. one of the biggest problems is when you can lend your balance sheet, that's equivalent to a rate hike. when they can't find these things, and it brought prices -- it brought deals done. especially mortgage-backed securities. maria: that his stocks. >> is a huge problem. it goes in the cost of capital and small businesses will effect them immensely. small businesses use personal funds. >> this is why they are signaling that so far ahead. i don't think the move in any

6:30 am
president mike pence said the country should not test president trump. we met this morning's publication from the north is just the latest reminder of the risks each one of you face every day and the defense and the freedom of the people of south korea and the defense of america. maria: were taking a closer look at the rising tensions of the north. turkey's president erdogan declares victory in a referendum . police on the hunt for a woman they say wrapped five right -- robbed five banks while wearing pajamas. general motors makes a major change in this chevy volt. it will come without a navigation system. how you can get your caffeine
6:31 am
fix with clear coffee. we will bring it to you. u.s. markets open this morning after a holiday onri futures indicating a lower average. it's expected to be done about 16 points per day. in asia overnight china reporting the fastest economic growth in nearly two years. gdp out of china 6.9 percent. as you see the markets were down there. a record-breaking weekend at the box office. it brings in more than half a billion dollars fast and furious. what drove the music -- the movie. our top stories is half hour vice president mike pence visiting the demilitarized zone during his visit to the region he delivered a strong message to the regina in the north. >> for more than two decades denied states and our allies have worked to peacefully dismantle north korea's
6:32 am
nuclear program and alleviate the suffering of their people but every step of the way north korea answered our overtures with willful deceptions and broken promises and nuclear and missile test. the era air of strategic patience is over. joining us right now is a senior fellow. policy research. the provocations coming from north korea now. >> i would call it strategic neglect over the last 20 years. this is something that has been neglected by both sides. we've seen at the north korea's develop dangerous into our allies in our world for the past 20 years and we've done virtually nothing. what we see here now is a complete and clear choose a policy saying that you
6:33 am
provocations and the development of the capabilities and nuclear weapons is not acceptable. we have to remember the other thing that's going on here is that the obama white house helped add to this issued by issue by both the neglect of the north korea issue but also funding the iranians. we note behind the scenes the path last year has gone to help fund the program. we have to understand this is a huge problem that finally someone is going to deal with. maria: the president told me last week that the u.s. sent in armada incredibly powerful submarines just sitting there right close to the korean peninsula. as a enough? we had been very clear in announcing without giving away capability the intent to use something to diminish the ability by the way this is
6:34 am
another reason you saw secretary of defense matus his first trip was to defend allies. we have to reassure our allies we don't want them to go nuclear. we don't want that to happen. we want to maintain an assurance and we have to make the north koreans understand that there will be consequences for bad behavior. and this is something new to them. >> we've seen the time for negotiations is dead. we can't keep giving money to north korea because guess what they're doing their doubling their info structure and they're just not listening. if a dictator th assassinated his older brother. i don't understand why we can even continue what we've done in the past.
6:35 am
if we can do sanctions because they haven't been working if we can do giving the money because they're not giving it to the people to feed. what can we do is it just solely working with the chinese to actually get something done and relying on cyber warfare is what else is there. there are more severe capabilities. >> we do have other options. it is a political will to use them. we've have these things for 15 or 20 years. a leader like a president has authorized to do it. live to work with the chinese no doubt. they can literally turn the lights out in north korea. it's not an interested to see the north koreans behave badly i think they understand that. this weekend we were joined on sunday morning futures them launching another missile.
6:36 am
it was not a success. there are some reports that the u.s. may have hacked this missile. what you know about this. this lisa will asking the question. >> this is not the obama white house. we don't give our playbook away. that's very bad strategy. they are responsible for some of the most amazing cyber work but when i can tell people what we do so people need to draw their conclusions but understand the use of the moab these things send a clear message. maria: what do you think colonel, did they go on offense to try to take the missile down. i would guess probably yes. and the comment was something completely clear.
6:37 am
that dropping of the bomb using what we call a penetrator was more about sending a signal to the north koreans. it killed a lot of isis folks. i know the people that designed the weapon. it is for taking out bunkers that contain nuclear weapons. this is where the signaling by the trump administration is being crystal clear. the north koreans must be taking notice because again the capabilities are back on the table. to send these messages. that mother of all bombs it was there on the table for use and we've never in we've never used it. a close friend of mine is that ceo of the company that developed it. this has been a political the ps not there to use the full spectrum of capabilities we
6:38 am
have there to us. we have seen the north koreans develop all of these hideous and other capabilities that we have to deal with. >> to the american people have to get comfortable with the level of military involvement that we haven't seen before our people ready to deal with that sort of thing? >> the north korean issue has never been resolved. that's why we have the demilitarized zone. in many ways we are simply moving forward with the logical consequences of north korean bad behavior. we have to now move forward with reinvigorating our own deterrence. there was an article over the weekend regarding the b61 not
6:39 am
wanting to use it but willing to use it if we are provoked to do it. very tough not giving anything away in terms of what we have but reiterating the fact that we've got the most technologically advanced and powerful because of raising rising tensions around the world are obvious. the u.s. has conducted test over the new version of a nuclear bomb. they said they've run successful test flights involving upgraded version of the bomb. will present trump to become a war president. >> i hope not. we have to be able to show that we are building effective nuclear weapons. we head on the table a few years ago called the reliable replacement warhead. it was thrown away by the

i thought it was going to be a quiet day. easter monday and all. there's a lot happening given the foreign policy situation. we have cheryl back from cuba happy to have you back. judge andrew napolitano is here. he is also the former member of the security council. an actor and co- author. paul savino makes a appearance. the president's critics are still looking for the release of his tax returns.
7:03 am
in major cities including chicago, new york washington dc at least 20 people were arrested in berkeley california. the president tweeted in response same this was his tweet. joining us right now is the former presidential candidate and arkansas governor mike huckabee. great to be with you. for me i feel like more people care about their own tax returns than donald trump's tax returns. they were hot topic on the campaign trail but what he make of these protests now when everybody is just trying to understand better the tax agenda coming out of this administration.
7:04 am
>> they can get more information about donald trump's finances if they that they look at the statement of financial interests both as a candidate as a president. i can understand donald trump's tax returns. he has hundreds of llcs all over the place. probably several feet high. it's one of the reason that it needs to be scrapped. all you can have is that hernia. you're bringing up a great point. i was surprised to see it happen. that was more than bernie sanders has paid as well as some of their demagogues that they put out. do to think the narrative is just slowly die out given the fact that he's paid his first chair. >> i think it's died out
7:05 am
already. some people just can't leave the funeral. they're basically a small group of people it is the sound of a collective yacht they care about their tax returns. they're just looking to make sure. when summit someone linked the tax returns. >> is this an opportunity for the president to go out and sell his tax plan a little bit. it seems to me this might be a chance to come out and say here's what we want to do our taxes we want to make it better for everybody in this country.
7:06 am
not just for people like me. i was hoping he would do the tax reform right off the bat. he could've have the votes in the house and the senate for the reduction of the corporate tax rate down to 15%. he would've been able to explain the middle-class benefits simply because corporations don't ultimately pay taxes they pass it on to the end user. were you surprised in my interview this week that he said we all knew that he want to get health care .-dot but to hear him say specifically that the is still knee-deep in the healthcare argument is not what the butter wants.
7:07 am
>> i heard him say that as well. i don't agree with the president on that. he's been convinced by some people around him that he has to do the healthcare because there are tax pieces in it but he can independently do the tax reform because one of the things of significant cut in the tax will do is to open up markets for job creation could you imagine what happens in countries and businesses all over the globe know that they can come to america for 15% tax rate. we've chased capital out of the u.s. why not suck it back in. which we would do. he said as high as it. what is the impact on markets in small businesses all that money coming back from
7:08 am
overseas. >> that i think he's gonna do. he will encourage companies to bring that money back. maria: he recognizes the importance of this. >> i think he does. he has the votes and he needs to do it now. he has a house the senate and the white house. at the senate and the house can't house can't get this done they might all need to get this done. this is not located. is that the heavy lifting and that the healthcare bill is. this is a simple transaction. they are arguing over deductions. whether it's do you eliminate the deduction on state income. but on foreign policy saturday night live poked fun with part
7:09 am
of my exclusive interview. >> an exclusive interview to foxbusiness. >> we had finished dinner when i have a desert. dessert. we have the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake we'd ever seen. >> first of all you don't know what cake i have seen. and second, maybe you should take it easy on the cake. you arty have a butt like an atlanta stripper. eventually they got back on track and gave the important details. we just launched the missiles heading to iraq.
7:10 am
are you sure bro. cassette parts kind of important. were asking about missile strikes. saturday night live also spoofing administration. watch this. president trump recently bombed syria while eating the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake america has ever laid eyes on. it's incredible. one thing we can always be assured of is that saturday night live will never be a source of accurate and fair and balanced political reporting. it's a comedy show. you should be flattered that
7:11 am
you took the interview and made fun of it because it's the ultimate compliment to be spent on saturday night live. how could you laugh when you're talking about strikes against syria. i was really laughing over the chocolate cake. it was funny. it gave clues into how he's actually running and dictated his policy especially when it comes to foreign policy where everybody talks about leading from behind. you know what he really stressed he said we want to make sure that the president of china felt respected. we work in a let him sit there and then go back home and then find out later that we sent 59 tomahawk missiles to syria.
7:12 am
so we gave him the respect to tell him beforehand. >> and he gave them the piece of the very finest chocolate cake that ever has been served on a plate. no question about it. governor, you are already's -- always a sport. thanks for being here. in a galaxy far far away the first look at the star wars theme park next.

7:18 am
cheryl you have to toss out your trip to cuba. talk about a giant infrastructure project for american companies they could use an american touch on that. encourage everybody to check it out. the people are very friendly and very happy to have us there. i've have friends that have gone and they had loved it. it's very 1950s. they will not go until the entire bloodline has passed. they're very happy that raul castro is now a little bit more open to that. fidel was so oppressive of the people.
7:19 am

7:21 am
7:22 am
president trump's first 100 days nearly over. at state 88 right now. investors are betting on the administration's policy ideas moving growth but what happens next is a more geopolitical risks come to the forefront.
7:23 am
paul christopher wells fargo institute have. we note the markets are waiting on tax reform and we know where we stand the president said he has to do healthcare first and then move onto tax reform. do you think there is a threat that these markets that nothing gets done. and what will this mean for the market. i think the markets are already starting to discount the probability. if they begin to see the forms in the contours markets could begin discounting in the second half of this year. you think that the markets well have this. we still have to see what those details are going to look like and we have to see what the complications will be with healthcare reform coming first. and that's where the markets are right now. struggling to stay at the level they won't be at. we are in that neighborhood
7:24 am
right now it's a great opportunity for investors to start rebalancing and taking some profits here. but where the were looking for some future discounting again and if those plans for corporate taxes fall into place later in the year. i think that as an is an important note to take because we haven't seen a 5% correction since the end of june last year. it's pretty significant that we keep having this rise up. we've seen technology rise over the last quarter and one of the reasons why is it was growing top line revenue as well as bottom-line revenue expecting around 14% rise in technology. they are seeing a growing market share of ad spend when you look at facebook, microsoft and google. my question to paul is what sectors are you advising your clients to go to because there are worrisome pockets.
7:25 am
are there places that your clients can seek refuge in this market? >> we selected cyclical sectors. consumer discretionary. we really like the financials here. on some of this disappointment. some additional upside in the long end of the curve. we still like financials here. other than the yield curve what do you see helping to pop prop the financials up. they sustained new highs that we haven't seen since 2008 most of the big banks and growth seems to be slowing a little bit. could be running out of steam in the financials and do we need participation from other sectors. we are seeing some of the
7:26 am
expectations come down. we also seen as some encouraging trends. they had been using a lot of long-term debt. and with a solid economy we are expecting more fundamentally driven strains. it doesn't seem to be translated into consumer spending. where do you see that going. where's -- what's a paradox there. and maybe some folks who thought to the economy was a little bit stronger than it really is. we will start to see a more solid second and third fourth quarter.
7:27 am
the first quarter having been weak just as it's been the last several years is affecting some of the numbers that we are seeing right now. beyond the end of this year. we saw sell upward trajectory to this market. we think consumers will continue to take on more debt. corporations will as well. with markets at these levels. it's a great time to take some profits and look for values. it's the first week it could put him at the center of a landmark case. a little bit of lighthearted hazing. how they plan to expand into self driving technology. back in a moment.

7:33 am
news senior judicial analyst good to see you our report justice gorsuch may have to recuse himself. >> i don't know about recusal no provision for supreme court justices to recuse themselves so if i am trying a case as a trial court judge and i have a financial interest in the outcome of the case, k i can't be the judge, but if i am a supreme court justice, i have some interest in the outcome of the case there is no provision to remove me no option for the other eight to move him, the justices often recuse themselves for the integrity of the court because if you have an interest in the outcome it doesn't look good, doesn't appear justice just better for history the way court is perceived you not be involved. >> freedom of rm case out of missouri has an amendment to its constitution, at prohibits any financial aid to any religious institution even

laid down the law saying the relationship with our friends in south korea ironclad and i am i am mutable. >> -- we will be watching that, thank you adam shapiro at the white house there we bring in former u.s. ambassador to china getting back to tens with north korea former u.s. ambassador to china gary locke with us this morning ambassador good to have you owe at any program thanks for joining us. >> good to be with you. maria: what is your reaction to president trump's meeting with president xi what can china do? do you think willing to help u.s.? >> i was very pleased with meeting between two presidents really had an opportunity to get to know each other understand the priorities, and concerns of each country. certainly president trump indicated that north korea was a major issue, for america. and it has been really great to see that china, over the last several years starting under president obama has
8:05 am
supported tough u.n. sanctions against north korea, everything, north korea has to be brought to the table has to stop its nuclear development, and china quite frankly has to do even more than what it has done before. it is gratifying to see within last week or so china has turned back, cargo ships coming from north korea, are where it would be selling coal to china. so i think that china is beginning to -- understand just how dire the situation is, and is in fact putting even more pressure on north korea. china holds the key to negotiations ensuring north korea stops developing nuclear weapons. >> president trump tweeted said why would i call china a currency manipulator when working with us on north korean o problem. we will see what happens john mccain senator john mccain responded watch what he said sir. >> this maybe the first test
8:06 am
of this presidency, china can shut them down, and we should be -- whether currency man up lateors or not we should expect them to act to prevent what could be a cataclysmic event. >> do you think china or u.s. somehow was about behind failure of that missile launch in north korea over the weekend. >> probably classified who knows whether or not china or united states in any way helped bring about the failure of the missile test but the reality is that many of the tests in nor nor have failed they have not always been successful. and they have announced showcased a lot of weapons but never tested some of them or taken several years to test so their record of developing these high stakes weapons has been very spotty. but what is problematic is that there is still moving forward, in developing these
8:07 am
missiles some that hopefully some day, in their minds would reach the united states, that is why it is so dangerous and, of course, they have been testing underground nuclear weapons they are now trying to develop capability to deliver nukes weapons we have to make sure should he top china has been helping we need them to help even more to apply even more economic sanctions but primarily diplomatic efforts, because even u.s. military, top military have said that the military option is not the best one, we've got to do this diplomatically. >> one of the interesting aspects you alluded to earlier china stepping up he efforts whether putting soldiers at board turning down coal from north korea have a a has been emit's to make movements on this is it because, they are not being about labeled currency manipulator weren't back in last administration in october, said weren't manipulateing because we are tenning back from would be
8:08 am
china policy tournament trump alluded to or just they don't want to see the region be destabilized they want to be big player to be stable what is making them do all moves for us? >> the first of all, they have not been manipulateing currency for the last several years they have not been did he pressing value of currency as they used to introoe exports they have been propping up their currency. and to keep chinese money from leaving the country. they are more motivated by the fact they don't want to destabilized peninsula don't want north korea have to clean ups because of military action or because of -- other thing that have happened, because they don't want democratic peninsula they don't want a democracy on their borders they don't want to see all these american missiles defenses, in south korea don't want to see japan or south korea develop a nuclear weapon in response to what north
8:09 am
korea is doing so they are motivated to make sure that north korea says communist country that not developing arsenals that could possibly be used against china, so they understand just how fraught this situation is, and they know, that they have got to really pressure north korea to come to the bargain table now in the past, united states has taken this position, that we're not going to sit down and talk with north korea until they first stop developing their nuclear weapons well that hasn't worked, so perhaps we need have to bring them to the table, hear what they want to say, and because we've got to dry a different approach is it. maria: that is what president trump is trying to do. >> ambassador to currency for a second, trade with china, was one of the premier issues in the campaign trail it seems like north korea is taking that off the table can be expect far less, in the president was talking about when it comes to changing
8:10 am
trade relationship with china? >> well, the trade relationship with china, has really benefited millions of jobs in america, because in fact, for instance china is america's number one exexport destination for all agriculture goods we saw so many highly -- high-tech or advanced manufactured items to china whether boeing airplanes, to locomotives to diesel powered electrical generators china wants more with growing middle class people of china love american made products american brands. maria: right. >> i think you are going to see more exports of american made goods and services the we really is to make sure, that china is open to even more products that they open up their markets they open their sectors, that there is a level-playing field for u.s. made goods, and servicers, and that they stop discriminating in favor of their chinese brands. maria: so do you see that
8:11 am
evidence the chinese have actually done actual solid moves made solid moves to help the u.s. rein in north korea do you think they are solid evidence to show -- >> obviously, over last several ulteriors they have voted in favor of the u.n. sanctions against north korea some chinese companies are flouting that china has to be aggressive enforcing it ingest can't be united states putting penalties -- >> you see evidence? >> just within the last week or so they turned back shipments, of coal from north korea which is a major source of the income for north korea, really helps -- that is a significant step and, of course, we need them to continue that to do more. maria: ambassador good to see you thanks for weighing? >> thank you. maria: gary locke joining is changes 30,000 feet united airlines making a major policy

8:24 am
felt that 2.5% was a little high. and maybe 2. % -- 2.3% i heard might be low could be 2.3555 percent or 2.4% she agrees -- >> she is a most bullish we have interviewed her, since the financial crisis optimum momentum times. >> we are highest in the wrld 39%, right when you look across the seas over in britain 20% talking about going to 17%. maria: ireland 12%. >> so that is one of the biggest problems we have here because small businesses are getting taxed through nose whether through health care -- >> she sees you are right sees all of that she wants to have that part of the unknown with president trump's world make sure known. >> that unknown is she concerned about execution here she likes the ideas they need

8:26 am
expensive to meet for those countries and those corporates plying u.s. goods. >> point being, that she is with the president, that we do need to see a slightly weaker dollar, she said that is if she wants u.s. goods cheaper for people overseas so that a, people overseas poorer countries can use our goods, b, that u.s. can then, of course, sell more goods. >> every administration wants a lower dollar they just don't say it donald trump just says it. >> you want a strong dollar strong economy one of the biggest issues i take effect with weaker dollar purchasing power abroad, as well as we're services economy 66% economy is that why worrying about exports i think focus o let dollar do what dollar should do free market, any time we become interventionists misallocating capital. >> try telling to any multinational big u.s. company dying to fill goods but -- >> since recession, from 2009,

on immigration, has already had an impact. >> you really do have to secure the border the border. >> first and foremost but very, very, very good news is for a lot of different rnz number of illegal aliens moving up from the south has dropped off presip towsley we are down 65, 07% last two months. maria: how the administration is clamping down on illegal grants who have committed crimes that is coming up, plus, testing the technology rally to report earnings after close kicking off sen for sector a preview coming up stock on fire, rest of the markets, open today, after the long holiday weekend futures indicating, the markets will open higher we were looking at weakness but things completely reversed course, 30 minutes ago we are looking at gain 30 points on dow industrials, this morning, european markets closed for easter monday, no takes a look asian markets saws mixed nikkei fractionally up shanghai composite was

down 3/4 of a percent geopolitical tensions rising in asia, of course, but china reported fastest economic growth in nearly two gdp china 6.9%, white house cracking down on illegal cambridges homeland security kelly backed president trump's commitment to make united states border more secure. >> -- go forward if you are here illegally you should leave, or you should be deported, put through system, but there are 11 million people very k complicated people came as children, people here who came illegally many years ago have married local men and women had children very complicated problem, but the law is the law. and given but i don't have up limited capacity to execute. >> secretary kelly had previously called for hiring 5,000 border agents 10,000 more immigration costumes enforcement officers trump
8:33 am
administration looking it is a border wall proposals former a children ceo ubs painewebber chairman ceo right 9b holds joe grano with us we are happy you are here thanks for joining us i also served as former chairman cht homeland security advisory council what we want to tap into on this conversation what is your take in terms of border patrol agents talked about how we are, securing the borders. >> well, first of all, it is all about law enforcement. unfortunately, retroactive law enforcement is difficult to execute so i think we need to draw a line in the stand prospectively enforce law tougher controls on border at all. and from retroactive practicality focus on core felons the rest some type of amnesty in my opinion.
8:34 am
>> you have to be impressed what we have seen with all the talk about don't -- o come to the border if you committed a crime borders are closed, people trying to even come in are down big the numbers. >> secretary -- kelly talked about a report 16600 turned away in march that is a 64% improvement over a year ago. and i think that that perception what could happen at border is causing that fear, component. so whatever it takes i think good i think we are doingo to enforce lace homeland security has three objectives immigration is right now very hot topic cybersecurity number two, and number three terrorism, those are three mandates keep them busy. >> cybersecurity is that next biggest threat in the world because war is fought differently nowadays we don't have boots on the ground, in terms of using drones nukes,
8:35 am
massive casualties so hopefully we don't escalate geopolitical he tensions as quick as we might have before so cybersecurity next biggest threat. >> i think it is a biggest threat facing america today, many of our major corporations are -- government -- find themselves very vulnerable. all fire walls serve a purpose not enough you need to engage mano a mano my and then a does that we have 25 best 35 -- developed in the nation what you need toing garred i think number one threat. >> also goes back to hb 1 visas we need to develop cairo techniques that we can deploy against adversaries as well as protect ourselves. >> i don't think -- i do think that is a rigorous that we should not overlook, but
8:36 am
frankly we have enough talent in this country we train, my cto -- ubs never trained in cyber, cyberexamine command wants to train 9,000 additional operators. most of the best of the best have come out of nsa, in terms of homegrown cyberspecialists, and very good. >> how much should consumers be concerned about these issues when it comes to biggest companies that we're doing business with over there seems in headlines always hearing yahoo! amazon somebody being hacked information being loss is the situation actually worse than headlines or is it better and we are seeing the worst case scenarios here. >> what you see what you are getting right now probably a good -- medium it is a very vulnerable point, but as we move transition to more mobile payment systems with the phone, that is going to make us more vulnerable big concern this your money from bank because of your mobile device how you access it so i
8:37 am
think -- part of our cybersecurity protection has to be focused on identity theft and vulnerabilities of mobile payment systems. >> secretary kelly doubling down dpornt illegal immigrants as you mentioned who committed crimes in the past listen to what secretary kelly said yesterday i want to get your reaction. >> well someone as example multiple duis even a single dui depending on other aspects, and would get you into the system. maria: so a driving under influence crime would get you into the system what is your take on this. >> i think that is from postponed aluminum swings a little bit to a far illegal act to say deportable -- dip images a stretch. again, it is about law enforcement, and that individual speaking of already broke the law coming here illegally the question is does that become a priority? in terms of deportation? i would think not in my opinion.
8:38 am
>> do you think thep is going to really double down on threat if you break the law you are a sanctuary city we will withhold federal money from your subcommittee when you look at subcommittee like new york, new york gets seven billion dollars federal funding do you think that this administration is willing to go all the way and starve new york 7 billion dollars if they continue to say we are a sanctuary city. >> i think what you are seeing is a president that is learning on the job. and i think that he is moving to more pragmatic view on many, many issues i think he will move a bit more pragmaticly on this as well. >> -- when katie was skilled in from an bn illegal immigrant had priors, went there discuss a it was ask sanctuary city we do need to address the situation he talked about it in when he did this -- when he spoke earlier this year, on the law there are big problems that we have in k sanctuary cities do need
8:39 am
to comply, because they are causing more strife with ice as well as own law enforcement and the situation is getting harder so i see dui situation another way for them to enact the laws. >> well again, it is a matter of pragmatism home homeless mentally ill create same type of crimes talking about them? what you want to make a incriminate aus celeb overall longer term you are going to see a practicality aroac not going away i agree with you, we have to address it. >> joe good to see you thank for weighing in joe grano there breaking news the president just tweeted moments ago here is what he is saying this morning, the fake media, not real media has gotten worse since election, every story is badly slanted we have to hold them to the truth. obviously this president a tough time with media, and when you look at cnn, "new
8:40 am
york times" "washington post" so many outlets out there, really do paint his policies as negative. >> not fox business. >> no, not fox business, true. >> you kind of hit nail on head when talking to sean hannity after you interviewed this president is because their directing narrative in wrong direction democrats instead of taking responsibility they are placing blame on the russians for what they did what they did wrong and reelected even nancy pelosi that is why 2018 is such important year we do not want the power to go back in that direction, so this administration needs to start to get things done especially on the tax cuts, and then they can get into health care and then -- >> i are not sick of winning. >> not sick of winning i am not sick of it neil gorsuch you did mention that was good. >> earnings on demanded netflix to report first-quarter earnings after the bell what you you need to look at that corner stock rising this morning nasdaq up
