6:00 am
lauren: we are going to say happy friday morning to maria bartiromo. maria: hi, there ladies, thanks so much. good morning, everybody, thanks for being here. it is friday april 21st, top stories right now 6:00 a.m. on the east coast. president trump looks to roll back more regulation today. he will be signing three executive actions including one targeting dodd-frank. treasury secretary steven nuif addressing the administration's priorities on financial regulation just yesterday. >> we believe in proper regulation. this isn't about having no regulation but as it relates as reform, making sure that our banks can lend and that this doesn't put our taxpayers at risk. maria: this coming as the house can vote on repealing and replacing obamacare next week. a lot of talk that they are close at this point. we have all the details coming up this morning.
6:01 am
earning season, two big ones today. investors are expecting update on cost-cutting plans. the stock at 30.27 a shares. ge's results could drive the dow today. a dow component. take a look at the broader averages. dow jones industrial average is expected to open better on the session, up 3 points. nasdaq also firmer with a gain of about 10 points right now n. europe markets are a little changed. take a look at the indices, the dax index higher by a fraction. in asia overnight markets closed mostly higher with the exception of hong kong. the nikkei average best performer in japan up better than 1%. to the latest developments out of paris, a terrorist attack yesterday striking the heart of the city, a police officer shot dead and it comes just days before the first vote in the presidential election in france, how that could affect the vote coming up? plus intense moments on the california highway to tell you about. a car drags a car look at this
6:02 am
picture for 4 miles without the driver noticing that there's a car attached. there's a person in that car, by the way. more of this unbelievable video coming this morning. slow demand for motorcycles forcing layoffs at harley davidson, could be affected, could have the news this morning and your credit card gets smart. master card showing with fingerprint sensor, all the stories coming up this morning and joining me to talk about it fox business dagen mcdowell, mitch rochelle is here and maslansky + partners lee carter. i think there's going to be a bigger week this upcoming week because once again, we are talking about health care and the tax package but it really does seem that the freedom caucus and tuesday group are coming together. >> they have to. we have to do something and move the country forward and there has to be middle ground that people can agree on.
6:03 am
maria: are you surprised? dagen: no, there's a lot of pressure particularly coming out of the white house to get something legislatively done before the 100th day mark is hit, april 29th, potential government shutdown we have to worry about it. i'm always worried when things get rushed in washington. they don't dot their i's and cross their t's. it's seen as a victory if the house can push something out. maria: big victory. joining conversation former michigan congressman, oklahoma congressman tom coal is -- cole is here. first, though, president trump will sign three executive actions to advance administration's agenda in rolling back regulation that is will happen this afternoon. the president's latest executive order will unleash to identify and reduce tax burdens, he will also sign a presidential memo
6:04 am
asking for review of dodd-frank and another memo is asking for assessment of financial stability of oversight council. president trump addressed regulationed in our interview just last week. >> we've done an amazing job on regulations. we have freed it up. we have freed up this country so much. the miners, the agency, we have freed up so much and we are getting great, great credit for it. we have done so much for so many people i don't think that there's a presidential period of time in the first 100 days where anyone has done nearly what we have been able to do. maria: so what about that? let's talk about that, mitch. during the president's campaign he vow toddies mantle dodd-frank and roll back regulations s this another step to achieving promises or do we see the impact? >> mnuchin obviously understands all of this, the too big to fail, some of the regulations,
6:05 am
but they really should do what is easier focusing on small e institutions as opposed to smaller institutions, the local banks are the ones that can put capital in small towns across the country that jump-starts the economy. maria: that area has really been squeezed because of the regulatory burden. >> big money center bank that has the right balance sheet and right staff can comply with the rules of dodd-frank, small institutions just can't, what they do they don't make kinds of loans that they'll have problems complying with and those need immediate regulatory relief. i will go low as oppose to go high. dagen: one is related by the crack-down of the obama treasury -- the attempted trackdown of u.s. companies merging with
6:06 am
overseas entities to try and lower their tax bills, but the way that they tried to change the tax law on all corporations through this action under the obama white house was burdensome for virtually every u.s. company and the way that they manged their cash, not to get too complicated, but they really started mucking with decades of tax law trying to prevent these companies from merging with entities overseas. this will be a huge relief if they can back -- if the trump white house can back off of this. maria: you can't have the same rule for a gigantic bank that you would for a smaller bank. dagen: right. maria: one size fits all and, in fact, that doesn't happen. lee: that's right. one of the big problems that we are seeing right now, i'm excite that had the regulations are being rolled back right now but i do think that the trump white house has not figured out messaging, they haven't been able to tell a story about what we are expecting just to say that we are having three more executive orderers or rolling back regulation, whoever tells the story is going to own the story and this is giving the democrats an opportunity to change the narrative here and make it sound like whatever it is that they want to and so i
6:07 am
think they really need to do much better job in selling these things. dagen: instead all we see this morning in the news media is the photo of sarah palin and kid rock and ted nygen in the white house. they've been able to accomplish quite a bit internationally and even in the u.s. without these big tax -- like the tax and healthcare reform but they need -- they need to message that rather than who is visiting the white house. maria: yesterday steven mnuchin made a comment at the conference that he was at basically saying tax reform is happening soon and with that the market completely took off. when he does mention that and start messaging that, markets react. >> well, the market wants specificity so they get a more information and they react, the taxpayers want specificity and businesses want specificity and right now sort of a big wash of generalities.
6:08 am
maria: listen, that i have been working. obviously something is coming together on health care. president trump expressed optimism in terms of replacing obamacare during a joint news conference when he was with the ial ape prime minister yesterday. he predict that had new legislation would come soon. listen to this. >> it was never a give-up. the press sort of reported that it was like a give-up, there's no give-up. we started, it took obamacare 17 months. i've really been negotiated this for two months, maybe even less than that because we had a 30-day period where we did lots of other things, the first 30 days. it is a continuation and the plan gets better and better and it's gotten really, really good and a lot of people are liking it a lot. we have a good chance of getting it soon. i would like to say next week. maria: next week could be critical. the negotiations are coming as lawmakers are trying to avoid a government shutdown next week. what about that? do americans look at the
6:09 am
potential for government shutdown and also equate that to this uncertainty over health care, lee? lee: i would like to this that it's going to happen next week. i think the two-week recess has people saying what is happening. they are talking about having a conference call this weekend, hopefully we will know more on monday. if we end up in a shutdown situation it'll be interesting to see who is going to get blamed for that and is that going to look at republican ineffectiveness and really again this has got to be about who is telling the story and i really think that the republicans have to do a better job owning a story and really getting out in front of what's going on right now. maria: how do they do that? lee: they need to start talking more and get behind talking points. we have seen when everybody gets together on the same page and talking about the same thing over and over again, make america great again, america first.
6:10 am
>> that was the case of tax reform. >> they were not doing that in health care at all. maria: they were not aligned. dagen: kellyanne conway is extremely strong on talking about health care. it was her idea and her foresight that it would be the premium increases and insurers dropping people off of health plans in october that would give trump a huge bump leading into the election last year. she saw that coming and knew how to message that. not enough people from the administration out there talking about all of these different initiatives and explaining them in a way. our focus is on sean spicer and the daily white house briefing every day to see if there's -- it's got to go beyond that. lee: has to go well beyond that and really beyond the white house. we have to get ryan, the freedom caucus, we have to get everybody on the same page because we are seeing that even support for repealing obamacare is falling and they are losing this messaging more. they need to get it back. dagen: that was one of the things that the democrats have
6:11 am
try today hang their hat on, the support for keeping obamacare in place was picking up in the beginning to have year. >> one of the challenges with the government shutdown, they will need some votes from democrats around some topics which means they may be trading some of the points with repeal and replace. maria: good luck with that. they continue to say that they can't find a democratic vote. dagen: some of the democrats still want to make an issue of president trump's tax returns to hold up the spending bill. okay. maria: yeah. lee: who are the working for? dagen: i'm word free except for explicative. [laughter] maria: what the terrorism means for the presidential election, round one sunday night. why the motorcycle maker planning layoffs, we will tell

maria: welcome back, apple shares off to a strong start this year climbing better than 20%. take a look at that chart.
6:21 am
samsung galaxy s8 is being released to date. no date of release of apple device but rumors claims apple will move the touch id to the back of the phones. joining us right now the editor of mashable, lance good to see you. >> thanks for having me. maria: not everybody is loving the idea. >> no, no, the idea that you want off screen. this is -- just to backup a little bit. apple rumors about iphone 8 has been going on since the iphone 7 released. it's been a more than a year of rumors so you have to take this with a grain of salt. a so-called leak from china, there's always stuff coming out of there, apple does a bunch of different designs but they might want to move the fingerprint reader to the back because they want all screen. samsung galaxy 8 plus. brand-new, infinity display.
6:22 am
there's no fiscal button on the front of here. they put the fingerprint reader on the back. apple wants to put their lowers, a terrible spot for the finger sprint reader. maria: thumb or index finger? >> i'm putting it over the camera so it drives me a little crazy. here is the problem -- maria: i think i like it here. >> we are used to it here. >> apple would really like to put it there but the problem is they can't figure out yet how to integrate the technology underneath the screen. this is why it's not here right now. that's why they weren't able to do it for samsung and supposedly apple has run into the exact same problem. maybe because if they didn't run into that problem you would actually have a hidden underneath here. there's a vibration under here but there's no fingerprint reader. it's a frustrating thing because this is apple's ten-year anniversary for the iphone, we want it to be special, we wan it
6:23 am
to look different. we want them to push the envelope but we don't want them to annoy us. maria: wow. i can see why that's annoying. dagen: what are some of the most annoying, complained about things in the 7 that -- that apple might try to fix? >> well, obviously with the 7 they took away the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. dagen: it's annoying because you can't use the headphones and charge the phone at the same time. maria: and you can't get the headphone that is you have. >> with every single iphone 7, they ship the dongle with it. they knew they were getting ahead of people a little bit. you can still use your old headphones, but it is something that people are concerned about using. i would say that's the biggest complaint but you know apple
6:24 am
sold tens of millions of these iphones and in particular the iphone 7 plus was the big seller, it didn't slow them down at all. there was no sort of aquilis heel. maria: what do you expect from samsung today? >> it needed to come back from the debacle, it is beautiful, it feels good. this one is actually 6.2-inch screen. s85.8-inch screen, it's also sort of a more narrow phone so the edges are curved and doesn't feel too big. the infinity display is gorgeous and everything looks brilliant on it. it's super fast. people are very excited about this phone. i think that samsung, which by the way is the leader on the android side will do well with it. lee: one of my questions is how
6:25 am
is that used with a case? is that more likely to break? >> so it's glass on both side. there are drop tests. >> give them to anybody in my family and we will drop them. >> i carried with a case as well, a beautiful case for it but i like to go case free because it's nice and thin and i want to make it thicker, i don't drop things too much. dagen: i slammed mics phone in the door and didn't crack, it dent but they replaced it but it didn't even crack. >> smartphone prices and i say the full price. we never use today say that because people use today carried it out through carrier and they had contracts and switch when they were allowed to. now, you still pay on a monthly basis but they've telling you the full price of the phone, the smaller one is like 750 and
6:26 am
pretty much in line with iphone. they start at 64 gigabyte of memory. dagen: if apple changes the iphone and the face of it, it's going to look like every other phone. >> it's very difficult to innovate in the smartphone space and stand out because they are all becoming the beautiful slabs of glass. maria: and they're all smart. >> they're all smart and fast. it's really a battle to do something that sets out. in the iphone 7 plus, for example, you have the two cameras, you have something called the portrait mode. that's actually a real stand-out feature. dagen: they need to add to smaller phones. >> it's 12 megapixels. that may make difference. that's all people care about. [laughter] >> excuse me, i have to get one right now. [laughter] maria: lance, great stuff.

6:33 am
this is in line with everything else, we still had last quarter, a sharp reversal after five consecutive quarters of down earnings so the momentum of confidence is high and some of the companies reported today in the infrastructure space and how those companies perform. dagen: we talked about this yesterday. looking at the stock market, better signs showing up not just in the stock market but the bond market with a drop in yield, the yield went up yesterday with the rally in the stock market, you have seen copper and iron ore prices tumbling in the wall street journal today, leadership swinging away from the hot stocks like the financials back to the safety of utility real estate companies which you know well so there is concern if you look beneath or in the broad financial markets. maria: when you look at something like that, an
6:34 am
important metal to look at, building homes and cars, it is an economic indicator. to see iron or take the dive it has tells you about the economy. dagen: copper is used in building homes, building cars. >> of lightning yield curve and selloff out of these, an indicator of slow down. dagen: first quarter looks good. maria: honeywell beating expectations, $1.71 versus $1.62 so honeywell and ge better-than-expected this morning, putting a firmer tone to the market, we will see if these other indicators whether it is tax receipts or metals, we watch the economy. another terrorist attack in paris. isis claiming responsibility for the shooting that killed one police officer and wounded three other people, officers shot and killed the 39-year-old gunman

6:37 am
in or out. >> there plan is accommodation and appeasement, not interested in taking the head on, they continue to believe if you allow them to exist and are nice to them, and integrate to your society, it is not the case and if they can't understand this what will it take? >> there are people saying this is the indicator of the same thing happening, last night we were having a conversation, they had a totally different security issue, a different way of dealing with it. is this something we should be concerned about? >> absolutely. this is the path of the refugee crisis. moving through europe, it started to come over here, not to the degree it is in france but the fundamental difference that sets america apart from france is we are not as soft a target was we have the second amendment, people carry their guns, if you catch me any given day in connecticut i am carrying
6:38 am
a gun, a bad day if they tried to shoot me. >> more than borders in france was there are areas where there are no go areas because even cops don't to go. certain people come to the country, don't assimilate. dagen: something impossible at this point for friends or other countries struggling with it you have a similar problem in britain for example. the government sanctioned all the culturalism with groups of people, large muslim communities where they live together and they are not assimilated into the rest of the culture and something they will continue to struggle with from a broad national perspective and security standpoint. >> the other income a large part of the muslim communities moving into these areas they are not doing anything illegal. it is a takeover, they are moving in, building these
6:39 am
communities, people not of their culture leave so you are left with things like michigan or france with no go zones. >> if they are practicing sharia law which is no respect for women, that is illegal. >> it is not being enforced. nobody is policing get. dagen: the brussels terrorist in brussels came out of muslim communities outside brussels. it is a breeding ground. maria: let me ask about north korea. there are concerns north korea is preparing for another nuclear test, the leadership said it, south korea is on heightened alert as kim jong-il and's regime prepares to mark the anniversary of the korean people's army, china putting bombers on high alert ahead of the anniversary and james matus spoke about it last night. >> there word is not proven
6:40 am
honest, provocative, have not lived up to any statements they made in the past. the same value we have always given, not to trust them. maria: north korea state media, this is what the media is saying, super mighty preemptive strike, will reduce the us to ashes. any weights to these comments out of state media? 's change they can't be brushed off but secretary matus said they don't -- they have a 700,000 person standing army but that is the majority of their resources of their economy going to that. i don't inc. they can launch a full-scale attack but they have potential to launch a pearl harbor style attack. we face the same threat in north korea as japan during world or 2 remake and it needs to be taken briefly because if we are purely defensive we will end up with
6:41 am
another pearl harbor. >> china will be an ally of some sort? >> they have to. we are not going to go in and occupy and rebuild the nation like we tried to do in iraq, south korea and china have to absorb economy if that leadership falls. they have to play a huge part in it. maria: we are watching, thanks for your insight. coming up next a close call for a driver in a california the way. a truck dragged his car from miles as he tried to get the truck's attention to tell him you are being dragged and i'm in the car blessed trouble on the road for tesla, the flaw in its parking brake said you recall, thousands of tesla cars, back in a moment. dave: because as we live longe. and markets continue to rise and fall... predictable is one thing you need in retirement to help protect what you've earned and ensure it lasts. introducing brighthouse financial.

7:02 am
callan -- colin kapnick influential quacks. >> healthcare is that what we could we could see next week. i could predict it. if we get a bill out of the house next week it would be surprised. the treasury secretary indicated that they are doing something. in the short run it has to be about keeping the government open. just in the last day or so between the white house and the democrats and what the white house wants in terms of the border wall of funding. they are still moaning about the tax return.
7:03 am
there is no one it seems that really wants to work together. that's been going on the last eight years. there always seems to be a couple that are on the fringe. i don't know anybody moving across the aisle. i understand why these people don't understand that this election is saying were tired of not getting things done. it's going to hurt them all. there is an election this weekend in france. round two is may 7. and of course there was a terrorist attack in paris again. we've a lot to talk about this morning.
7:04 am
first though our top story right now. an aggressive timeline out for both healthcare and tax reform. president trump just tweeted this. it has been a lot including supreme court the media will kill. the homeland security secretary said the construction of the border wall could be sooner than he previously thought. you make a hundred companies from across the nation have shown interest in their prototypes my expectation of course contracted is pretty complicated business in the federal government but i think
7:05 am
by late spring early summer well have some prototypes and then we will be able to move forward into the summer. >> these negotiations coming. lawmakers are trying to avoid a government shutdown of course. congressman, good to see you. thanks for joining us. what you make of this new tone in conversation about the aggressive timeline. first next week we could see a bill out of the house on healthcare and we know that the president has said once healthcare is complete they are all in on tax reform. do you believe it. >> i don't know if they will pass the legislation or not. i'm not at all surprised that you are starting to see the aggressive tone coming out of the trump administration. it took so long. he didn't call on congress to cancel the recess. and work on these issues to
7:06 am
get them done the only surprise to me as it took so long. i think this is not to be the tone for the next three to six months. a lot of people criticize that they went on vacation. were back day one. with other colleagues dealing with nato issues. it does seem to be the white house putting pressure on the republicans in congress to get a vote next week and it just seems so unlikely. it gives them essentially one day when there's no legislative texts in place. it doesn't seem likely. if the white house versus the
7:07 am
republicans in congress. there is a problem with messaging here. and present trump uses twitter very effectively but they need to have a central communication plan coming out of the white house. >> they need to have a central talking point. if they have a lot in election next week do you think it's at all realistic to think that next week this is can happen quacks. >> i think it's can be difficult. the points that you're making are exactly right. this is a problem they taught with healthcare all along. they're talking about healthcare reform. does of us that are no longer in the process how's it going to benefit me in my family.
7:08 am
they've not done a very good job of articulating what is in the health care plan and why it's good for america and why it's better than what it hasn't replaced. what it is that they want to see changed. the university of alaska refusing to remove a graphic of a decapitated president trump. holding the president's severed had. what is your reaction to this graphic quacks. >> it's despicable. it's disappointing. a total lack of disrespect not only for donald trump but for the office of the president and at the same time we had universities going out and refusing the right for
7:09 am
conservative speakers to speak on campus. it's disappointing for all americans. it's absolutely outrageous. >> and surprise at the university of alaska well not remove the graphic. are you quacks. >> do you think chris evans okayed that quacks? he should say something this is not okay. and we can have this kind of an image where we can be this discriminatory towards conservatives and that's okay. if it were president obama it would be taken down immediately.
7:10 am
i would like isis to attack president trumps property. so again it's no problem when it is said about the sitting president. and then if it was president obama. it is despicable. how about this. president trump invited some rocking guests to the white house. in a slick post sarah palin think the president and shared photos of the visit. what do you make of this meeting quacks --? we have great people here. kid rock and ted nugent had
7:11 am
been involved in politics for an extended. of time i'm glad that donald trump is talking to them. during the campaign ted nugent was in michigan we were together at a lot of the rallies ted have a lot of suggestions in terms of to help donald trump and to help our governor to bring michigan back and get s on the road to recovery. you may see one of these folks running for the u.s. senate. it would be a very interesting and exciting race. some of those pictures were goofy. >> that's my only issue. can you take your hats off when you're in the oval office.
7:12 am
i really don't appreciate them making a joke ceiling by hillary clinton. i don't think that's appropriate. that's what the new york times is writing about today. the white house are is pushing a progrowth economic agenda. that's what were talking about. keep focusing on michigan we have an economy that's coming back. moved to michigan it's a great place. congressman, thank you sir. move it to michigan you heard the man. the strong new warning for parents. cough syrup can kill.

7:24 am
is it refiners came out of the season and they are buying a lot more oil than they were. over the last eight weeks we had added $1.6 million of demand back to the market. the problem here is if you look at the term structure oil is in the greatest demand when you look at the pricing of oil for june, july relative to when you go to the meeting season and the fall the prices this summer a month ago were at parity. so that is a problem when you have a price for a commodity in the peak demand trading below the price. that is a clearest tail for you. if your opec you're in the

of the party that brought them closer together there has been sorts of things if agreement procedurally we will more of rapidly no reason why people disagree. >> you side conversation on saturday before coming back tuesday? >> yeah, that is pretty normal, i mean, we have been going two weeks, so leadership will you know get the whole membership on tell them, how they see the landscape what they think will happen. frankly they want to listen to what members have seen and heard, on the out -- you know when they have been out of washington and finally, i would expect some people involved in negotiations of give a view where they see things standing very helpful seting the stage for what we hope is productive next week. >> sounds like you are just talking about basically getting a lay of the land or landscape not like actual discussion what is going to be in this legislation, do you have any idea what we should be expecting to see if there is going -- >> no.
8:07 am
-- look, i think we've got 90% of the bill right now, honestly. you have to remember, roughly 200 members willing to vote for the bill that we had. so most of the conferences already there but we've got to get 216 or 217, again, we've had you know losses on both our moderate wing and freedom question the speaker had those guys talking with one another so he you guys found a way between your differences most the rest of us are there don't need to be part of that discussion, so again, we will see. and hopefully we've made progress i know the president has been very hands-on last couple weeks i had the opportunity to visit with him, two or three days ago, and you know it is clear very heavily engaged i think his participation has been very, very productive. >> some of the what is in the -- the newest proposal draft proposal about limited waivers that states could apply to basically circumvent or opt out of obamacare standards for
8:08 am
minute benefits that are required also. >> correct about. >> a -- opt out of requirement on community rating which is the s insurers can't charge much more for people with a preexisting conditions but it is complicated but there is at least a draft proposal that is out there, in the last couple days. maria: is there a proposal that takes premiums down? right? that was the priority for the freedom caucus. dagen: that is in the proposal, that states could that states opting out of these rules would have to prove that they are doing it to reduce the premiums, and they would have to prove it benefits the people of the state. so -- i am -- i am simplifying it to great extent would have to prove it was -- >> the rest rest of the proposed bill looks like previous one? dagen: some of it not all of it. congressman? >> well, i think that is a discussion pretty much sums it
8:09 am
up, i -- high-risk pools added -- literally last day of the session, that, too would lower rates because it will remove part of the population with obviously is most in need of health care, the most expensive to take care of. from you know the baseline for most people and, again, that pushes rates down, we want to make sure those people get help there is plenty of coverage, but you know that is really pushed up the clocks for the average person, who only needs health care now and then, doesn't have chronic preexisting condition. >> it is mitch. the tax reform elements baked into a previous draft, are those still in play as well? accuse, obviously, that was the big part of the he overly tax reform scheme of the administration. >> absolutely. you know, again, a lot of this is about number one getting good health care for people, that is the first objective affordable health care you also we think we can do it in ways that save lots of money, that money helps finance tax reform.
8:10 am
>> a trillion dollars, in fact congressman let me switch to wear on terror pushing for president trump to submit a warring authorization to congress over war in syria what do you want to see at this point. >> first of all, i want to know what powers examine commander in chief thinks he needs what objectives are i think our main objective in syria is isis, when you talk to military they donate mike bones about it obviously don't like assad obviously if he uses wmd's as president showed he is prepared to act our main aim is to destroy isis. and that enemy didn't exist last time that we voted on an authorization. and we didn't expect to be fighting in syria, so a if you are fighting a new enemy new place the constitution is pretty clear war making power rests with congress we need to use it. obama about president obama frankly i think was the was the willingness of the congress said basically, cooptsdz war making power it needs to go back where accountable to the people that

>> 5.4 trillion dollars, in assets under management pretty incredible what do you make of regulatory environment right now what would you expect from president trump? >> well, i think we went too far in some of the regulatory issues especially he related to banks we have more stringent standards in parts of utopia do i believe the problem we have hopefully we will address this when we have a financial crisis one of the most important things was to simplify regulation, but make it much more strident the problem was that they didn't do simplification, banking system is governed by three or four agencies, and most other countries governed by one agencies or two agencies. maria: you are right. >> there lies the problem you might have to address one issue one agency another with another so the backlog the need to be working with government alphabetizal agencies is really cumbersome, no other parts of the world
8:33 am
has what we call the provocativeel rule harmed liquidity for position of trades as a result a big problem in liquidity, i think there was you know pretty much unnecessary because as long as you have high equity standards i don't believe you need to have those type of restrictions so i believe that is going to be one thing that will be addressed, and the other thing that will be addressed beyond hopefully may be a consolidation of regulatory agencies annual review is very cumbersome, it requires hundreds of millions of dollars of legal analysis all that. there has to be a way to make these processes more foesht easier to do a component of
8:34 am
the the analysis is one quantitative easier the other qualitatively who is the judge the arbiter of qualitatively illness banks don't know how to responded get feedback six months later after they -- after they -- apply for it, and so there are many things we can do to simplify it without you know without harming and our society, and let's be clear we did have a big financial crisis, many families are still facing pain, so we need strong capital standards for our financial institutions, we need a system that is protective, but we don't need a system that harlz tfrm harms. >> they have xa will to pay

8:36 am
america losing productivity because we have not even maintained many of our bridges and roads, and airports, we are -- we have over a trillion dollars want to repeat a trillion dollars deferred maintenance, one of the structural problems state and local government financing not strong some are some are weak but, overall, because pension fund liability some states are encumbered by because of other needs, the states don't -- don't have money for the infrastructure, to even repair, so one of the things that we have been suggesting is infrastructure in to address at the deferred maintenance. financial crisis we created something called build american bonds we create another type like that 185 billion dollars raised in 18 months, we they became taxable bonds issued by municipalities partiallyly subsidized by
8:37 am
federal government federal government got money back because taxable not tax exempt if acquiesce that program right now first of all, immediate shot into the local communities would create jobs rapidly, and we would finally start breaking down this horrible path we're in having among worse infrastructure in the world i read santa maria we are 50th in world in infrastructure, number one economy in the world, cannot have that. and so i know i am very proud of this country i think we are the greatest economy greet oest country in the world, but we can't have one of the worst infrastructures in the world. maria: you don't have a place like dubai anywhere emphasis in the world singapore the airport is incredible, versus what we have here. >> true. >> this is an area i think the president can come together with democrats, because there is a bike willingness to do infrastructure, now president trump says he wants to spend 200 billion dollars over 10 years on infrastructure bank
8:38 am
is that the way to do it to get private partnerships? >> so infrastructure bank is a great he mechanism to do public/private. the reason i am suggesting this build america type bond you can do that this week. within months. the public/private partnership is going to require much more work, i mean one of the key problems in america is are permit to go get a project done is longer than almost any country in the world. of the and that is one of the real problems we need -- >> bureaucracy the stuff he is trying to roll back right the red tape. >> we have to this is hard to do, but you are not just talking federal bureaucracy this is you are talking, city bureaucracy, county bureaucracy, state, and the problem is this is not just one jurisdiction, to do infrastructure like tappan zee bridge take 15 years on the table finally -- he that was federal that was state two counties. maria: that is big victory
8:39 am
for governor cuomo. >> required army corps of engineers epa, absolutely, a public/private partnership would be fantastic, what i would say maria with all the clients that we have worldwide, i believe there is hundreds of billions of dollars available to invest in the u.s. infrastructure. maria: you would know since you are the number one shareholder in most companies, certainly out there shern s&p 500 you talked about that in annual letter to shareholders infrastructure also a priority you see biggest issue for investors that is retirement planning, you don't have enough money let me get your take on markets right here the expectations are high tax reform something on health care infrastructure big story at ishares blackrock acquiring ishores franchise seven years ago you have grown from 385 billion dollars to 1.3 trillion only etf you are to
8:40 am
up 5.4 trpdz in aum overall. >> now 1.4 million etf. >> what are you feeling about investors right now is this a vulnerable moment in time? or should we be nervous we don't see tax reform -- >> obviously every market crosscurrents a, what we talked about last year end of last year was there was a wall of money, so some of that wall of money has been put to work shirks at working she huge pools of partial pension funds on cash, we ---en saw money being put to work that was only a drop. if you compared different markets u.s. market, is probably priced for perfection versus europe and asia the at this time asian equities represent more value than u.s. does that mean a setback in market? may be, may be not. what i am pleased so far is
8:41 am
earnings like we just had ge, earnings are validating some higher evaluations, so if we continue to see during this earnings season, higher more success in terms of earnings, then maybe our evaluations are not as extreme valuations extreme with the expectations as you suggested that we were going to have tax reform, and deregulation. i believe this is going to take somewhat longer time. but we all should hope that we are going to get success out of the administration to validate the marketplace. so if somebody asked me would we see five or 10% retrenchment in equity markets over a period of time would i say absolutely i would also say bye-bye-bye. >> is it hipthdz on tax reform package people are expecting if we don't get he tax reform in 2017 would you expect a big sell-off.
8:42 am
>> it really goes into the -- the tone on theality how certain do you think something could happen a lot of nuisance would i say short reason i see what earnings season brings us to, if earnings continue to be like ge announced, what blackstone announced other firms announced and blackrock may be stock market is fairly priced but the next leg the next leg up. we have to have some of the performance out of washington. maria: for shoor all waiting for you instituted technology within the way you operate, at blackrock, tell us about "aladdin" what you are trying to do with robotics as relates to picking stocks. >> well "aladdin" is a system started when we founded the company 29 years ago it has grown and grown. it is a risk management system it is a system that is really it is architectu of our firm
