6:03 am
people will choose to not buy insurance. dagen: maria: on the left you don't care that his choice. people are choosing not to take the insurance. dagen: people who are getting dumped off of health insurance programs as we were talking about blue cross blue shield of kansas city said it is is withdrawing obamacare plans in kansas and missouri. 731,000 people in missouri alone won't have any coverage options. let's talk about the reality on the ground before you point to a bill that had been moved to the senate. maria: about coming out. you're in for the cofounder and ceo of startup health. but the technology in health care. former speaker of the house, fox news contributor newt gingrich's file is promoted deputy chief of staff to george w. bush in a fox news contributor, karl rove is here. stephen ross is with us this morning.

6:05 am
however issues like trade, climate change and security expected on the top of the agenda. now the president is gearing up for a lunch meeting with the newly elected french president, said they. that will be a one-on-one meeting in an hour's time from now. later this evening will shift over to nato as the president will meet for meters and nato member nations. the president has been critical for quite some time, especially calling for nato nations to increase their defense spending. the secretary of state rex tillerson yesterday on that issue. >> he really wants to persuade nato members to step up and fully meet their obligations. you can expect the president to be tough on them same outcome of the u.s. is spending 4%. we are doing a lot. the american people are doing a lot for your security commensurate to charity. make sure you are doing your share. reporter: after the meeting
6:06 am
wraps up, on the sicily for the g7 imac friday and saturday. maria, i have a hunch here. i'll bet you a nickel if you're so inclined when the president gets here, they'll have a room with a view. maria: i'm sure. there you are in sicily. i know it's tough. somebody's got to do it, though. >> they asked. i said yes. maria: coming back to you. blake berman is live in italy. while president trump is in brussels as president, the american voters weighed in on his agenda. 44% of voters nationwide say that the president is doing what he was elect you to do, shake up washington while 53% say the first few months in office show his agenda is coming apart. the poll shows that the last month takes a toll on the president's approval rating. it finds 40% of voters approve of the job tribe is doing down from 45% last month.
6:07 am
disapproval up five points to 53%. steve cortez tell us what is your take on these numbers. >> will, i'll be the first to concede as a trump ours and that there have been stumbles out of the gate and that's to be expected when we elect our first-ever nonpolitician to the white house. somebody who didn't come from the military or politics. having said that, there's been enormous successes yet i would point to the economy come acceleration of the economy to the supreme court and then i would also point out i think this is huge to the border already be partially secured may be untrue mainly just by his words which is incredible. their achievements and symbols. but the polls indicated that the country and we knew this and we knew this from the election, the country's incredibly divided. primarily because of slow growth. once the president delivers, and i think he will. a tax package that gets growth
6:08 am
accelerating. we will see a lot of that division within america's start to receive. it is a sad and bitter consequence of a decade of slow growth. maria: what they communicate that in a that in attacks on what they are trying to do with taxes the way that they've been able to communicate other things. you talk about messaging a lot. >> republicans in the house and senate, when they rolled out the first obamacare replacement was horrible. paul writes to very give a powerpoint presentation that basically a third grader could do better. he was trying to explain to people why this would work in their benefit and now is an utter disaster. republicans in the house and senate, but also president trump in the way the administration has handled the critical maneuvers. i think a lot of people gave them a pass for the messiness of the travel ban when it was implemented because it was so
6:09 am
early. it was so early in the industry shame. the firing of fbi director jim comey was equally messy. the communications team are basically sweating at the gym for a lack of a better phrase, got caught off guard. you see that in these polls. they asked about the real reason president trump fired comey. 60% said the investigations were harming trump. that is messaging from the mainstream media. 34% of the note 53%. and the 13% were unsure. again, if the messaging had been better, people would feel differently. maria: last night i joined hannity and i was on with austin pulls v. austin was so smart because as soon as he comes on talking about the health care bill, first thing he brings up is the cost of nursing homes. this is exactly what resonates with people.
6:10 am
start talking about the cost of what people use. nursing homes, care. he went right to the specifics of what we are paying for. it wasn't a powerpoint presentation. it is right where people understand what we are talking about here they understand exactly what you're saying in terms of getting the messaging right in terms of what we talk about. people's health care. >> we are in the business of explaining things. finance and business your entire television career, you know the importance of it raining something complicated in a way that everybody can understand it because that the whole point. >> to your point, the way to do that is storytelling. the left is better is storytelling generally been the bright. we do tend on the right to default to facts and figures and powerpoint presentations. about real people and what is the story behind this policy.
6:11 am
maria: that's a good point. we are going to a short break here from a comeback, the details in the bombing outside of the ariana grande concert in manchester as a suspect brother and father arrested. the tsa brand said security procedures targeting a lack on extensive here what you can expect at the airport coming next. back in a moment. before i had the shooting, burning of diabetic nerve pain
6:12 am
these feet... jumped into city life as a kid... ...raised two rough and tumble boys... ...and kept my town moving. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and i love keeping their little feet safe and sound. ask your doctor about lyrica. if you are eligible, you could pay as little as $25 dollars a month.

6:21 am
6:22 am
maria: welcome back. breaking news right now. manchester police was running to a call outside of the city. the army is on the way to the scene right now. a bomb disposal team has survived. details as they come in. this is coming as new details have emerged on the bomber that carries out the deadly attack in manchester monday night. u.s. officials telling toxin is that salman abedi than three weeks in libya before returning to the u.k.-based authority carried out the attack. news comes as libyan authorities have arrested some six father and brother yesterday. former cia operative president of diligence, global intelligence security firm, mike baker is the best way to new mac are waiting in. what is your reaction to the arrest here? yesterday we had the cia farmer had before this is known, he
6:23 am
said i would ask that is to be family members that rather typically are associated with the same name when you have a situation like this. what is your reaction? >> well, anybody in counterterrorism and the first thing when of come that there is a sense as you start to get more details about the attack is out, there is a sense that there's obvious support network. this wasn't a lone wolf -- traditional lone wolf type of attack. there have to be some support likely in creating the explosive device. there is support likely and surveilling the target ahead of the attacks. so it's not a big leap to imagine that it was close or distant family members or close friends that were involved in
6:24 am
this along with the attacker. maria: has got to bring up something we were talking about yesterday yet the fact that this guy was on a watch list. we know that he was on a watch list in the u.k. and he had just come off of a three-week stay in libya. how is this mess? >> it is not missed. people imagine if someone comes up on the radar screen of a security service or in a service that those people are being watched 24/7 all the way down the road. that is not the way it works. oftentimes it's not allowable under the restrictions of what you can and can't do. resources are at issue as well. maria: the three-week trip to libya, should not have sort of ran a red flag if this guy is on the watching goes to libya for three weeks? dagen: shouldn't it be, if you look at the case of the tsarnaev
6:25 am
brothers. they were on the radar of authorities, attackers and terrorists. sad sad and was signed the watch list. >> the difference between constant surveillance and someone coming across the radar rb would that at some point are being questioned at some point. again, i'm not sure how else to it than this other than if they want that level of surveillance, and then change the law. but you also at the same time have people as remain about privacy rights and liberty. that priority list, that any service has commend the u.k. for instead, with terror suspects can that priority of who you have to watch and pay attention to is a very complicated list
6:26 am
and people are moved up and down constantly shifting based on intelligence about people's associates are invidious or whatever it might be. some are removed from the list. we are trying to make a sound check. >> i have a question regarding the united states. we've been talking about how president trump was the communication was very poor. in terms of policy, doesn't this at least to some degree validate the idea that it makes sense for us to put the brakes on visitors from countries that are incomplete disarray places like libya and syria. the terrorists have just visited here it is not a cent to the policy to the united states? >> a sensible policy to the united states is a very good point to bring up is to say gas. of course we are and of course we want to have an efficient
6:27 am
immigration system and that also means coming into the country we should be able to properly vet them. particularly when they are coming to state. i just don't see how tt is difficult to comprehend. so yes, there needs to be more done. as an example, if the attacker had been thoroughly vetted, you know, again look at this in a different way. the family came over from libya to the u.k. and he was born in the u.k. so what does that mean? in that situation, that in the family before they came over would've accomplished nothing. again, there is more to this than meets the eye. sometimes they try to throw some sort of simple box in an effort
6:28 am
to understand the horrific nature. maria: fair enough. u.k. prime minister teresa and as many with president trump in brussels could obviously do so, but she will also address the recently expired u.s. intelligence officials surrounded the manchester bombing investigation. these lakes have put a huge turn in the relationship between intelligence communities in the u.s. and u.k. were some reports that investigators have stop sharing of her nation with the u.s. regarding the bombing. what is your take here? >> ursula, no evidence that comes from the u.s. the likelihood that the information is thoroughly shared with on orson, but also it is not clear "the new york times" is in the spotlight on this one. i haven't sent any thing that's not a possibility that "the new york times" doesn't have a source over there in the u.k. that provided this information.
6:29 am
so i think we are kind of leaping through. "the new york times" is about the only outlet today that didn't bother to report on this uproar over the leaks, given what is front and center in the salt air. i would not make too much strain this might put on the relationship. there's no daylight between us and u.k. counterparts, whether it's at night i've are sixth in the metropolitan police or counterterror command. it is frustrating and assigned. the information is shared in confidence finished the week. at the same time, the cooperation continues on our radar screen. while statements are made by the home secretary or others in public theater, behind the
6:30 am
scenes, the government. maria: great to talk with you. thanks for weighing in. mike baker there. the battle over health care. rational budget office with its long-awaited score in the second gop plan to repeal and replace obamacare. at the same time, pulling out of the marketplace. the details that spirit winter is here. the new "game of thrones" trailer released and from the looks of it, the war has begun. we are taking a look. back in a moment.

6:33 am
maria: welcome back, good thursday good morning, thanks for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. thursday may 25th, top stories right now 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. president trump continues world tour this morning. today meeting with nato leaders in brussels. commander in chief expect today reiterate call for members to raise spending on defense. singer ariana grande honoring the lives lost outside of concert and she's now offering to cover funeral costs for victims, the city gets slight sign of hope, manchester united winning the europe league right now. latest out of manchester coming up. health care battle continues on capitol hill. cbo with without in gop bill this morning.
6:34 am
while they say it will lower premiums the number of uninsured is increasing by why? >> what we really should be having a debate since the democrats promised a bunch of things of obamacare, premiums reduced $2,500, they went up $3,000 a family. we really needed creating portable health care system. maria: news coming as yet another health insure e has pulled on obamacare. details on headache coming up. opec will extend production cuts into march of 2018, the opec meeting happening today. oil is down 1 and a half percent right now at 50.58. broader markets looking good. futures indicating a higher opening for stock prices, dow industrials set to open 80 points, nasdaq 20. in europe stocks are edging higher, take a look at the european indices. ftse up a fraction and cac quarante in paris up a third of a percent n. asia overnight,
6:35 am
gains across the board. best performer in korea and china. and winter has come apparently, hbo releasing first trailer for the highly anticipated seventh season of game of thrones. we have a preview right here. first hour top story the half hour, battle over health care, congressional budget office released report yesterday on the republican's plan to repeal and replace obamacare. cbo estimate that is the bill passed by the house would reduce federal deficit by $119 billion by 2026 while also lowering premiums. it would leave at least 23 million more americans uninsured than under obamacare. democrats point today that last figure as key point of opposition but republicans are casting down over accuracy of the report, watch. >> they deserve all the respect in the world but they are not profits, they are trying to answer questions that go out ten years, they are trying to predict what state legislators are going to do and they don't
6:36 am
know who those legislators and governors are going to be. i think it's an impossible task to some degree. maria: joining us right now the founder and ceo of start-up health, that's steve with us with highland capital management head of health care and credit equity michael gregory is with us. great to see you both. >> great to see you. maria: thank you. michael, you're looking tat whole spectrum of health care companies. tell us view on cbo score and impact? the big te away there was nothing last night that would impede flow of the bill in the senate. a couple of things here to note, the number 23 million people that are going lose health care, that's inflated. 17million people don't have insurance now. what last night was was a rerating of the cbo's original statement of how many people would have insurance from 2016 to 2026. 12million people that don't have medicaid now that they thought
6:37 am
would. texas and florida, they wouldn't have expanded medically irrespective of anything in the aca and secondly, 5 million people who they assumed would pick up coverage on the exchange using the 2016 baseline, they've reupdate that had number for 2017, so what we should do is focus on the 6 million people who really may lose health insurance and there's a silver lining that i learned last nightment for individual who is are middle-aged and working, premiums may get covered fbi newly introduced republican tax credit. this is a big win for the middle class. the republicans need a brand management coordinator and pr agent on the bill. it is clearly not as bad as advertised. maria: exactly what dagen said moments ago. dagen: now, i am going to call senator chuck schumer out on this because he talks about -- the cbo confirms that trump care is a cancer.
6:38 am
stop using that word to anybody who ever actually battled that disease or what has a family member or lost a family member. then he takes issue with the score that premiums will fall. you can't have it both ways, chuck, what is it? maria: the other thing that you mentioned which i want to get your take on, a big choice, a lot are not going to have insurance because they are choosing not to have insurance. dagen: they won't get hit with penalty through the irs and they will choose it with millions of americans who will choose not to buy health insurance, choose. >> the reality is republicans are inherited a mess, premiums are out of control and insurance companies have lost millions. we are expecting premiums to increase in 2018 by 20% in individual market and 5% in 2019. only when we get to 2020 when a lot of the key provisions in the
6:39 am
bill take effect can premiums start to actually decelerate. maria: obamacare is imploding and the left will not even admit that. there's no acknowledgment whatsoever. yesterday we got the news that blue cross blue shield that it's no longer going to be offering obamacare plans in kansas and missouri due to unsustainable losses. we have united health, aetna, anthem, bluecross blueshield. they are all coming out. from innovation standpoint, let's talk about that, steven because you have a really innovative internationallial company start-up health, what's the impact? >> it's not about trump care or obamacare, actually, it's about mothers, sisters and brothers, what we are seeing around the world is a waive of entrepreneurial innovation from not just entrepreneurs but really health care innovators who have the mind set who are leaning into actually reinventing reimagining health care. maria: you have to.
6:40 am
>> you have to. at the end to have day, we are far from seeing this anywhere from being passed, right, as it gets to the senate reworked, this is becoming a road map for what needs to be fixed. obamacare is not perfect and trumpcare is not going to be perfect either. how do we change the dialogue to what entrepreneurs and innovators can do to actually help not just here in america but all around the world live healthier and i think that's the big story here, is we have a global army of entrepreneurs transforming health care. the real story is today that'sng on. that's what innovative organizations like sap are doing when they are leaning in and not putting hundreds of millions but billions of dollars into health care to fiction it. >> i think that's a great point. there's a lot of bad news in health care clearly. by the way as a veteran of the trump campaign, the single reason we won was obamacare, i truly believe that in october -- dagen: you can get kellyanne conway for pushing that.
6:41 am
>> it wasn't russia or emails. i believe it was obamacare. maria: and tax reform. >> that's when we got momentum and literally the timing couldn't have been better for stream trump because it was in october that those people saw massive increases. that's the bad news, we are in a mess. >> we have been in a mess for a long time. >> innovation that's going on, by the way all of it from america, innovation is going on out there is incredible and our health care future is increased being bright once we figure out the best way for the government. >> the good news government is not going to save health care, entrepreneurs and the mind set of entrepreneurship within organizations is what's going to fix health care. every day right now there are thousands of entrepreneurs working on this. big organizations working on this leaning on, this apple, this is a real topic, they're not waiting around to see what's happening. maria: unfortunately the rest of the market putting innovators aside. steven, look at insurance
6:42 am
companies. give us your impact, michael, sorry. >> the insurance companies if you're not involved in the obamacare exchange, it's not going to hurt you. so by pulling out, many side-stepped losses. anthem health care is one of our favorite names. anthem has easy trajectory, receiving sufficient premium to cover the cost trend for health expenses by people who they cover, beat and raids story in 2017, look at the go-forward, 15 to 20% from 2021 on earnings. reduction in tax, $665 billion. a big piece of that is taxes on the insurers. so they side-stepped allow single digit. number two, anthem benefits from restructuring pharmacy benefit contract which is getting a lot
6:43 am
of media attention and that would be 15% contributor and thirdly if tax reform comes into play, that's another 20 to 30% lift to earnings, insurance companies are domestic facing businesses paying full tax. so there's a very clear picture going forward for the insurers and we like anthem for that reason. maria: great insights. real quick, steven, start-up health, largest health digital portfolio. last time you said you had 10 companies and now 200 companies. >> we are bullish. incredible time. best time to be entrepreneur and investor in health care. maria: that's incredible. fantastic insight. steven krein and michael being with us. ariana grande offering cocover victim's funeral costs. fans have launched a twitter campaign to get her song one last time to top the charts. we have the details coming up. winter has arrived.

7:04 am
for joining the conversation. do you think the president's of unity has been so effective so far, how would you characterize the trip? >> i would give him by minus to b plus. we saw him be presidential and put russia stuff behind him until he gets back to united states russia will come back up. what's going to be interesting today in meeting with macron, meeting with theresa may because we found out yesterday that the uk is very upset about the united states intelligence agencies leaking information. the white house leaks are becoming problem with for the president. dagen: we don't know that that was leaked. you said the white house -- we don't know where "the new york times" got that. former cia operative said that could have come to british
7:05 am
intelligence and they might with trying to deflect and blame the united states. >> the president admitted over and over the u.s. government has problems with leaks specially in intelligence community. the united states intelligence apparatus is bigger than most of the other developed countries so we don't know where the leak is coming from but i'm pretty sure that theresa mayweather it's coming from the brits or not, there's going to be harsh words between her and the president. dagen: why not worry about protecting your own people rather than trying to,an, take their eyes off the ball. worry about the fact that you had an attack in the middle of london, the fact that this individual was -- had traveled to libya just weeks before this bombing. maria: was there three weeks. dagen: effort by some people and try to change the story and change the narrative. when people have every right to be quite frankly concerned and
7:06 am
angry that this happened. >> i mean t not a matter of being concerned and angry here, dagen, the question that we are asking ourselves is -- i'm not a british intelligence officer but i'm pretty sure they are saying leave the leaking of this information to the new york times is problematic for the security -- safety of our investigation, for the integrity of the investigation and security all -- dagen: the mainstream media is the problem? >> i con ciewr that it's a massive problem. much of it is illegal and i hope that people will be charged with crimes. you're trying to fix the leaks to trump -- maria: you said the white house. >> the u.s. government and apparatus. it's a crown jewel, there is
7:07 am
some problems in that house, right, and here is the thing at the end to have day the president of the united states ultimately is the leader of this government whether we like it or not, just like the ceo is the person of the company. he has to do the best leadership he can to stop leaks from his government, period. maria: what about the president also meeting with uk prime minister theresa may but also meeting with angela merkel. angela merkel is going to meet with president obama, the two have had very different relationships, what do you meet with obama meet with merkel first? >> they did a presentation earlier this morning which was afternoon in europe around democracy and it's clear that angela merkel has her favorite. we will see what happens between her meeting between her and president trump. remember, the president is going to be walking back, it wasn't
7:08 am
too long ago that this president that nato was obsolete, he will have to walk some of that stuff and push nato members to give more money to defend and i think that's add -- admirable point. dagen: one point and statistics on how much we contributed. we consider 3 and a half percent domestic gross product, highest than any member. the target is 2 and only 5 out of the 28 who met that target last year. 5 out of 28. that's kind of sad. maria: he's the only one that brought it up, by the way. >> nato was created in an era of the cold war where united states brought together some eastern european countries to counterbalance russian -- russia and the u.s. authority's influence on the world and now nato has turn intoed a new operation beyond one curtailing
7:09 am
the russia, we also seen nato get engaged in antiterrorism efforts and nation-building of certain places, the model of nato has shifted and i think what the president has to do here artfully is walk back what he said in the campaign actually and two assess what will nato look like in the future when we are not only engaging a new adversary in russia but also what's happening in the middle east with spread of isis. maria: thanks for weighing in. thank you. new details are emerging on the bomber that carried out the deadly attack on manchester monday night. salman abedi spent three weeks in libya before returning to the uk just days before he carried out the attack. greg is in manchester, good morning to you. >> good morning, maria. yeah, we are here in the center of manchester where we just witnessed one minute of silenced marked both here and across the uk in memory of the victims of
7:10 am
this attack, 22 killed, 64 in area hospitals, mountain of flowers behind us being layed here. a lot of emotion, a lot of passion, a lot of tears. there were raids overnight, this morning there were arrests, right now they have eight people in custody, they believe, possibly was supporting salman abedi, 22-year-old who had been seen on surveillance video actually a couple of days before the attack, a couple of blocks from where it occurred in a shopping mall buying a knapsack according to leaked information in the past day or so we now know that he packed with explosives and doing all of that harm. also in the last 18 hours, detained in libya, his father and his brother, his brother claiming according to authorities there that isis knew about it and he knew about the plot.
7:11 am
his father past associations with groups associated with al-qaeda, certainly those are lines of investigate that will be followed. this is security remains on high alert, british authorities thinking that perhaps that bomb-maker is still out there and there could be another attack as well. again, the people are paying their respects including believe it or not the queen, queen elizabeth up here today, the 91-year-old mother, grandmother and great grandmother visiting the children's hospital here where 12 kids are still fighting for their lives, 12 children and teamers were hit by this attack being visited fbi queen. a lot of people here paying respects and a lot of people here pulling for those people pulling to get through. amazing stuff, maria. maria: just a terrible story and so sad. greg, thank you. greg palkot on the ground in manchester. recalling 25,000 car seats due to safety concerns. we will tell you about the seat and why it may not hold the child in the event of a crash.

maria: welcome back, president trump's budget in focus. omb corrector mick mulvaney defending the plan yesterday. >> you are slashing medicaid by $610 billion combined with the health care cut, that's almost $1.5 trillion of cuts to a program that currently serves
7:21 am
74 million americans. >> to most people plain language slashing medicaid would mean they spend less, that's not true, generally speaking all we do is slow the rate of growth. maria: joining us right now jon hilsenrath to weigh in. jon, good to see you, thanks for joining us. your take on the budget, jon. jon: the republicans are -- are -- have not embraced it, basically. it's an opening shot, you know, i think it sets the tone for cuts and discretionary spending, cuts in the growth rate of discretionary spending, our reporters on capitol hill talked to a lot of republicans who are on individual programs for meals on wheels to medicaid are saying, we can't do all of this. it's an opening shot but they've got a long way to go before they pass anything. >> jon, i have a question on the 3% growth rate, economic growth
7:22 am
rate that the budget projects, that's much higher than what the fed has, higher than cbo, how do you expect that to be implemented over time? we have been at 1 and a half to 2% growth for the last five to six years. jon: one of the inconsistencies it projects a 3% growth rate based on new administration policies like tack cuts and doesn't lay out the tax cut that is are going to get you the 3% growth rate. so i think that's another very big question mark in the budget. i should say you had a shot up there of mick mulvaney. the other important news that came out yet on capitol hill from mulvaney and mnuchin was the treasury is getting a little bit word about revenue flow. there's -- the government has already hit its bt ceiling, it cod run out of room to fund operations by august or september.
7:23 am
mnuchin and mulvaney were pushing republicans yesterday to raise debt ceiling before they go to the summer. republican party has a lot of work cut out for itself in the next few months. that's the bottom line. dagen: jon, it's dagen. mnuchin was saying that he wants a clean debt ceiling but the freedom caucus has pushed back against that and raises the issue of what trouble does that just alone create for the summer? >> it could be a problem for the markets. a clean debt ceiling what the trump administration and obama administration wanted, they always we wanted to attach conditions to raise debt ceiling. the question is whether they stick to -- to this -- now that they have a republican president
7:24 am
to deal with. there's a lot of internal tension in the party that they have to sort through and not a lot of time to work it out. >> jon, steve cortez here. i'm not surprise that had a lot of establishment people and almost anyone in the hill don't like this budget. jon: right. >> the most conservative since ronald reagan. real discretionary cuts. something we couldn't fathom under bush administration and certainly not under obama administration. i'm not surprise that had the establishment is pushing back hard but isn't this the message of 2016, is that the american people want real change in washington, d.c. and not tinkering around the ages but wholesale of the administrative state? jon: that's certainly the case and we are going to have to see if the republican party can deliver it, you know, what trump promised to the american people,
7:25 am
it's kind of a hard deal to deliver on because he said -- he said no changes to social security and medicare, well, throes the biggest drivers of deficit in the long run, if you want real change on the debt and the deficit in the long run, you need to attack that and, you know, trump was stick to go his promise when he sat down with mick mulvaney, he said we are not touching social security and medicare, well, what we see then you have to hit a lot of other parts of the budget and establishment republicans like you say and even some of the freedom caucus guys are saying, you know, we had a republican from north carolina, listen, i deliver meals on wheels from my district, and how do we cut on that? maria: isn't any president's budget always a an opening shot. it's an opening shot, yeah, it's going to get marked up but that's always the case, no surprise there. jon: absolutely. this is why i keep turning back to paul ryan and mitch mcconnell.
7:26 am
they now have to take this and turn it into a piece of legislation that -- that they can deliver to the president. they have to turn it into a tax policy, that's the most important part of this. if he wants 3% growth, they have to deliver a tax policy that the president can sign off on. maria: we had kevin brady yesterday, chairman of house ways and means, we are laser focus, we are going to speak with mick mulvaney later in the show. let me ask you questions about the fed, we had fed minutes ready to raise rates soon, we had a voting member right here in the studio yesterday. the president of the philadelphia federal reserve patrick harper told me that next month's meeting is definitely on the table. listen to what he said. i want to get your reaction, jon. >> i asked for in my forecast of three rate hikes this year. i think two are more appropriate. i have not factored any fiscal changes to that forecast. i think we measure those out of the course of the remainder of
7:27 am
the year. maria: that's thout any fial policy that he has put in his model, jon. jon: the market rallied on this news that the fed was going the raise interest rates. i think that's kind of interested. i think the market is taking reassurance that the fed is confident enough about the outlook that they think they can be tightening policy and if we do get a stimulative policy, they might want to be more aggressive. they're talking -- i think it's -- they are going to do a june rate increase physicals we get a horrible unemployment report in a couple of weeks, they are going to do that. they are also talking about starting to wind down this 4 and a half trillion dollar balance sheet that they put out. they put information on that yet. looked like they -- we have a pretty active fed and the market is okay with it. maria: yeah, le -- we will be jaching -- watching that.

investigate possible modeling. it sparks fears across the board this morning. shocking moments in wisconsin to report. a woman a stops a carjacking by jumping on the hood. the harrowing story coming up. it is not number one know. we will tell you who topped forbes is listed coming up. take a look. it's expected to be up about 70 points. nasdaq. about 20 points right now. a third of a% higher than all the averages. in asia overnight gains across the board. could it be up better than
7:33 am
1%. it announced it was holding interest rates steady. there is an opec meeting happening as we speak. the cartel will suspend its production cuts. that's what everybody expected. prices turned lower on the news many say that was baked into the market. the staggering price of one person's pain for peace of the flintstones history. all that coming. on the fourth stop of his first overseas trip as commander-in-chief. the former house speaker writes in a new update. never before has an american president tried so clearly to unite this is the last world including the nations of the middle east and africa against the forces of terrorism.
7:34 am
journalists in washington bureaucrats may see it as a distracting sideshow for the status quo that they could not imagine changing. and yet this week it already has. newt gingrich. >> i'm amazed how much news you just delivered a is a lot happening this morning. it's almost as if the mainstream media is covering a completely different world. two alternative realities. trumbull well have met with 85 liters by the end of this to her. he had 58 leaders of the world he gave a speech comparable to reagan's speech at westminster. it is truly historic.
7:35 am
this is the president of the nancy's lane out for 58 leaders from across the arab world here is what we have to do is partners to defeat evil. then he goes to meet with the pope. in the italian prime minister and president. and now next he will go down to sicily to the g-7. the last two presidents i think one went to mexico and want to can do. let's try to be his start. let's try to do the real thing. everything i've heard for example in the vatican is that he was remarkably will received. so what has been the impact and why is that important that he chose that order. never before have you seen the flight what they tend to forget is he has surrounded
7:36 am
himself with world-class people. the secretary of state was the head of exxon mobil the largest investor. thirty some years of experience. they have huge experience in the region. why does that matter. because they are talking to people they had known for years. they said look if you'll put this together it will be the first place we visit them and they put two big things together. they help to get 58 leaders in one room. 80% of the front page is the picture of all of these leaders of the charm. the king spent two and half days at his side. when the king who are not even
7:37 am
go to the airport to see obama but when he literally is at his side for two and half days the signal that sense of acceptability. easily 25,000 american jobs. so he was achieving more of an domestic goal. he really had the sense in jerusalem that there is a deal to be made. he loves making deals and he loves being positive. the ground was beginning to shake. it's also the first american president to go into prey.
7:38 am
general mcmaster talked about how they hoped they were in a work workout with the catholic church a whole series of cooperating with the american people. i think you will see anita today is getting come towards trump. i watched a reporter again who said trump well had to walk back some of his campaign. they need to get it. they will join in the coalition against isis. isys. >> he pointed to the issue. we were told somehow that it's trumpet has to change. a new fox news poll finds that seven intended in ten voters approve of the justice
7:39 am
department. this is a justice department now acknowledges tough sessions failed to disclose meetings he head with the russian ambassador last year when he was filling out his security clearance form. do these developments trouble you in any way. they need to say there's a problem here. there was some mistakes made by different people we will get to the bottom of it. get this stuff done and i think the average american will feel better at the end of the time some people may have made mistakes. when it's all over he regained all of the popularity after this. because people felt like he was sincerely trying to get to the bombing of it. my only fear is that these kinds of independent councils often go off track and you end
7:40 am
up with some poor guy for the conviction for perjury or obstruction of justice. nothing to do with the original purpose. there can come in and say now on the 17th day of the transition when you are in the trump tower and you had 39 meetings do you remember the meeting number 16. >> again here we are talking about this russia investigation we are still waiting on any evidence of collusion which has been nonexistent and yet the domestic agenda home were all wondering what the heck is happening. i'm fascinated. if he has as disciplined at home as we have seen him be on this trip if he decides to focus on big things if they cut out the daily briefings which are totally destructive
7:41 am
to have a place for the elite media to come in and destroy everything. there is zero reason to give daily briefings. first of all you more information because he could do a daily report i don't care if spicer does a daily report. if one of the networks is 93 to seven one of the networks is 93-seven. that's an attacker. let me ask you about the scoring and the healthcare they were totally wrong on obama care. i said this before it happened. it is totally destructive. it's totally dishonest. let's see that they are equally wrong about this.
7:42 am
everyone will run in circles. they will get tax reform done. and then they will get health reform done. would you be up for taking the white house chief of staff job. the major change in the white house is for present charm focus on a disciplined system. no one can run an undisciplined system. you were here with your wife a couple of weeks ago. they're actually today in the last day of her class. four weeks.
7:43 am
they had worked really hard. she's worked her tail off. and she's learned an immense amount in july. i will take the spouse course. >> you want to be the significant other. she has pointed me out. part of what they dealt with this been an hour and a half on concerns about the spouse because the ambassador is now the senator of everything. the hope that they will count them. i'm a go home and tell him he is can count that. i will report back to you on your accounting but a very proud of calista.

8:07 am
we have heard from the president whether it is unification, with the arab world, and to fight radical islamic terrorism, and the like even moving to rome does it turn into actual action? do you think? >> well, that is that is the rub, i think it will because conditions have made it such, but look this is a difficult joyner you remember president bush 43, was president who got a lot of these arab countries into the fight that is why we have air bases military installations terrorists intelligence centers in this part of the world that are in the fight. but it is it -- i think in a way ironically president trump owes president obama a debt of thanks because president obama did it so badly convinced people united states was unreversibly ally donald trump is benefiting from that because he made it clear we are in this fight we are going
8:08 am
to beat the isis and islamic terrorism we want you to be in the fight we will be a resolute ally demonstration not only with words but as actions saudis very concerned about -- about their military apparatus wanting american technology weapons and they got them, so but you are right, we will see how it goes forward, but he has in place a team, with matterison defense tillerson state mcmaster national security council have ability speaker gingrich pointing out longtime reps with region going to benefit president in fulfillment of policy. >> meeting with prime minister may in uk to meet with president trump in brussels going to address this leak story recent leeks by u.s. intelligence officials to the press surroundingch manchester bombing investigation what is your take on this? there are some reports that are saying investigators have stopped sharing information with united states regarding the bombing we are not sure
8:09 am
what to believe is this just a talking point? or is this a real concern? >> well, we don't really know where the leaks came from a whether they came from a british stours or american swhours got information but problematic to the investigation. americans move name "new york times" moved the name american media moved name brits holding it close pictures of the bomb this is vital information to investigation, and they would rather have that public much later than earlier. so this is problematic and she is probably going to speak about it my suspicions talking to british sources as well troubling "new york times" would do this this did not help the cause of the security the people of england or the cause of the security of american people as well. >> intelligence community is still energy this president or do you think may be engines community in britain.
8:10 am
>> it is -- it could be somebody in intelligence operatives there or here or law enforcement there i don't know i want to be careful about using name community i have general trust in american intelligence communities may be people disagree with administration i have learned more about state department than i do cia or the nsa in providing information like this there is nothiintelligence professionals know nothing gained a lot lost providing this to "new york times." >> is there a reason why u.s. intelligence community individuals have not come out to to speak about this you are hearing in uk, they are saying we leaked something. why haven't we defendeded ourselves? >> who knows who leaked i am sure responsible leadership cia doesn't want to say we didn't when they don't know whether or not somebody did, so better not to say anything if you don't know what the answer is. maria: yeah. >> karl, turning back to home,

8:13 am
long speech, but i am suggesting the same underlying principles a deliberate attempt to communicate a message that matters to the american people, a focus on that message, a deliberateness to it, don't get stuck -- stuck off in -- in side arguments or punching down creating unnecessary controversies will he be able to do that with health care plan across the line and do tax reform what the american people want this agenda done? >> well, on -- on tax reform absolute critical get this absolutely critical repeal and replace obamacare it my be time right now to step back not just pick up on health care, or even tax reform but to pick up on some of the messages that you are guests director mulvaney talked about this week why trying to do these things? he needs to step back put a big frame on it he needs to deal with some of the real you

0 maria: welcome back, president trump 2018 budget proposal sparked debate on capitol hill even some republicans are balking at level of so-called spending cuts it is a slowdown in the growth of spending, not
8:51 am
spending cuts, but my next guest maintains that lawmakers are resorting to washington speak calling them cuts joining is director of office management and budget nick mulvaney director good to see you thanks for joining us. >> thanks so much having me again. >> walk through budget for us tell us what is most important here. >> sure. we take or i taxpayers first, actually do something different we look at both sides of the equation i think too long focus in washington has been on the impact of the on the folks who receive benefits and no one paying attention to the folks who pay for the taxes so for the first time in recent memory we approached this budget like this line by line to the program said look can we defend, that program, let's say that outcome to the folks paying for it found programs for example in department of education, that were 6% effective, 6% failing grade,
8:52 am
we found that in the program with an of the low income programs for folks in colder areas of the kin that 11,000 dead people are getting the benefits, that is no longer defensible you go through budget with respect to folks pay for government this is result you get entirely defensible in fact,ed a mile-an-hour able. >> this is all so the reason, that the left is criticizing you and criticizing this budget basically saying look, there you know, your cutting things like food stamps cutting things, like, you know,, medicaid so what do you say to them, who you know you look at like msnbc anchors across the board basically saying that this is for the rich, and -- >> go ahead. >> a couple things to say to that i think one of the messages is if you are at home and you pay taxes, the democrats don't care about you. they are completely dismissing you as part of this analysis can when we talk about cuts however we talk about slashing programs, et cetera, the language that the left and
8:53 am
much of the media not all media has used the last couple days keep in mind that in washington, d.c., and i am not making this up maria if we spend 100 dollars on a program last year, and 104 dollars same program this year, they will call that a cut. because the congressional budget office says you are supposed to spend 106 dollars this year you actually spend more, about folks in this town again and again will tell you that is a cut that is disingenuous washington speak not ordinary english part of that disconnect between voters people representing them. >> it is dishonesty to call it cuts we know it is pullback in growth of spending over the years pm but you've got push back from republicans senator john mccain called it dead on arrival senator lindsey graham said it doesn't sound a snowball's chance in hell. >> i had great conversation with senator leahy i don't know very well i think may have seen in the congress longer than i have been alive
8:54 am
he called me upside don't worry young man yours is no more dead on arrival or less than every other presidential budget ever, keep in mind that we are obligated to offer a budget a vision document a top line messaging document what is that message? we are taking care of taxpayers we are funding this president's priorities, that he ran on, that is more money for national defense, more money for border security more money for you school choice more money for veterans more money for law enforcement, without adding to the deficit this year. that is the message we delivered to the congress in our budget, they may choose to get there another way that is fine we will have that discussion during the summer, but it doesn't surprise me that the -- many members of both parties want to write their own budget. >> one of the issues some have a problem with the expectations of growth 3% they are saying we've seen gdp numbers we just got a gdp of 7/10 of a per consequent first quarter i know first quarter
8:55 am
has seasonality issues however how do you come up with 3% expectation, and use that as potential partly to pay for this. >> sure, it is a great question leap to answer it we took look at the congressional budget office projections 1.9% maria 1.9% for ever the cbo most democrats will tell you best we can do, that is it that is the future. we refuse to accept that in trump administration. >> they haven't -- seen 3% tens. maria: residence. >> if 30 years old never worked in commend economy growing 3% we need to change that here is how we did it looked at effects potential impacts of tax policy, of trade policy of our deregulatory policy repealing okay care even cbo says will have positive impact on gdp growth when you he had a those up together we thought we could just electrify higher than 3 we sent 3 we thought a conservatively ebb defensible number. >> the proportional treasury secretary larry sumers saying
8:56 am
not a good budget the guest on wall street week, and here is what he said to me listen to this. >> -- director mulvaney is being dishonest. >> what was. >> because he is suggesting that we had used the same practice as their practice. they are the first to depart from what the whole big world thinks. >> he said you were dishonest. >> i haven't seen that from mr. summers i don't know him i know reputationed a mire him for that i assure you we have been a lot less aggressive than the clinton and obama administrations that he supported you go back look at president obama's proposals from early in term he was projecting 4 1/2, 4% growth for several years so i am not sure where mr. summers arrives at that we are entirely comfortable with economics the numbers the math behind this
8:57 am
budget we look forward to having a discussion with him about that. >> is there an area you are willing to negotiate here what are you willing to give on in order to get the budget passed? >> look go back to our top line message, increase funding on the things the president ran on, and won on, and don't increase the deficit this year, if there are ways to skin that cat we are more than happy to take about that we don't believe this is the only budget that makes any sense we believe the only one longtime looked at the spending to the prospective of people who pay for it if other ways to get there we will talk to congress about that. >> thanks very much sir. >> thanks mar. >> we will see you soon nick mulvaney we will be right back right here, stay with us. # hold on to your tiara kind of day. get 24/7 digestive support, with align. the #1 doctor recommended probiotic brand. now in kids chewables.
