6:03 am
nearly $32 billion last year. what do you make of this? this has been one of the biggest issues in trade. is this the right tax at the prime minister of vietnam? >> is the right path to take. the president was vehemently opposed so he needs to go out there in the asia-pacific region and strike deals especially early with the trade part is over there. it is critically important, especially because he's seen his administration talk about that. but as for wilbur ross or lighthouse there, we need to strike these deals because we have ip issues we need to settle it would also need their assistance when it comes to exports and taking in imports when it comes to be. >> there was not focused on this. even with regard to germany. about of conversation there. vietnam's prime minister to sign deals for up to $17 billion
6:04 am
during his trip to washington. >> the hard-line boat for a while. to a certain extent, the white house has to be delighted that the timing worked out because the president came back for the nine-day overseas trip that was generally hailed as a success. this is another step on the global stage of the presidents taking with another leader begin apparently this trade deal between the two countries. as you alluded to as well, we will see some global security questions discussed as well whether it's china and possibly north korea given all the headlines about pyongyang these days. maria: president trump coming off of the successful tour international come in his first overseas meet these headlines whether it's about trade, whether it's vietnam, other nations. his ability to work with the leaders of other nations and get headlines to show progress. whether it is a deals for vietnam and the united states just to keep the focus on we are getting things done that benefit
6:05 am
our role on the world stage and also the u.s. economy. maria: of course the media is not going to help them do that. they are all over the russian investigation and that's the only thing they are covering on the political front. they announced as a conservation partners worry about the u.s. commitment to playing a big role in the region. do you think we'll hear from both sides during the visit? >> probably especially because the white house is attuned to criticism in the press for the president took no question on the overseas trade. there might be an opportunity for a joint press conference. whether or not you think the russia story is legitimate, there are legitimate angles to it. seems to be an all-consuming media obsession, part of which is designed to delegitimize trump as president and there's very few things more legitimizing for u.s. president been standing at the oval office or in the white house with a foreign leader with the five behind them in that type of
6:06 am
formal setting. the optics of the president to engage in internationally again brought and now back at home, those are the types of images the administration want to see. >> the typical aspects of the south china sea as the partners there, whether the wrong we talked to today is kind of like the middle east with what's happening. we are going to seek their help when it comes to the north korea problem and they don't have. they will use that as a bargaining chip in barter chip when it comes to the south china sea. that's not good for a relationship that japan commit the time come the big trading partners we are trying to reestablish and engage more. >> you are 100% right. the japanese to buttress your point say we don't like what the chinese are doing regionally in the south china sea and elsewhere. they are threaded to reach and butter interests may align with the chinese and american when it comes to north korea.
6:07 am
you are right, no more evidence needed that will be sought in retreat yesterday for the president where he was treated about china and north korea to apply pressure to the chinese on the situation and how do you then turn around until the vietnamese later we will get tough on china. unique china on that level. dagen: in terms of the symbolism and getting tough with north korea and standing by allies in the region, look no further than the test of the missile defense system to successfully shoot down intercontinental ballistic missile. it was awesome and critically important. maria: let's talk about that. this is something people are not expected and they don't know what's going to happen next. dagen: people are talking about coming out talking to friends and family members over the holiday weekend talking about world war iii. you really need to take a big deep breath. in terms of we are very serious
6:08 am
if you listen to the secretary of defense, general mattis, you see what we are able to do. the medium-range missile defense system on the ground in south korea. the very serious preparations to ever prevent a strike on the united states. or our allies. >> i saw general mattis speak at commencement at west point graduation he was very measured and had a great message to the future military leaders of this country. he's very conscientious about you people get worried about the administration, public at the people of the top leadership positions. that's where you can take solace. maria: he does think differently. president trump wants to cut out the middleman when it comes to speaking with foreign leaders. "the associated press" reports president trump has been handing out a cell phone number to world leaders said call me directly. do you see any downside to this in terms of this kind of
6:09 am
personal appeal from the president giving on a cell phone number to other world leaders? dagen: gap, because individually , he has bad ideas. i'll point to "the wall street journal" editorial today, which is tough on the president. it's called the white house mess and it talks about the president. staff changes won't matter unless the president accepts he is the root of the dysfunction. he got the idea that he wanted to kill nafta by talking to a couple of his aides. everybody in the white house scrambling to try and basically told him back from that idea. they even had trudeau and the leader of mexico calling the president because they knew it would cause such disruption in terms of business, the economy, and even the optics of what's going on in the white house.
6:10 am
>> it doesn't matter whose white house chief of staff. it doesn't matter who is most important is her around him. he needs to listen to those people. >> why white house aides are making the president is considering a staff shakeup to keep them from leaking. they call out steve bennett. supposed to be the keeper of the populace flame that has cut a ballot paper that we'll see about economic state kerry: an advisor h.r. mcmaster. it's worth the read. >> on the cell phone story, the idea same call me, i want to engage principal to principal, that is what is this leaders often do. but there is a difference here when you are a world leader and you have all the secrets and conversations could be very sent to this. this is not a secure line. if you're worried about hillary clinton's e-mail servers i would. you have to be concerned about this. mr. president, you cannot discuss secrets on a cell phone because it's very vulnerable. dagen: he has a meeting with jim
6:11 am
comey and that doesn't even stay secret. he had to have someone else in the room to make sure that whatever is repeated through comey's notes is actually the truth. it's to protect the president from people you're speaking with and protect him from himself. maria: that's why they have a third person in the room. great conversation. topic. when we come back, no laughing matter. cnn's favorite comedian under fire after posing in a photo with a beheaded donald trump to a scare in the skies jetblue makes an emergency landing after a laptop catches fire. we've got the details. back in a moment. ♪ n't always come back up.

6:18 am
maria: she could not be more irrelevant. >> she's probably trying to get invited to hollywood parties. she's trying to draw attention. this is what she wants. >> when you live in a bubble where this type of image might get some chuckles, maybe you don't realize most of america will look at that and say no. dagen: given chelsea clinton looked at him and said no. >> people said she has to apologize. she apologize. maria: we will see if it's enough. the president poking fun at himself after 20 minutes. despite the constant negative press, i think you may coverage. he said you can figure out the true meaning. enjoy. he's making fun of themselves. dagen: i'm trying to figure out when you write coverage, what

6:24 am
it does have other areas like shipping costs. it's more innovative. it's been more innovative. try as anything goes fast. maria: how is he doing now? >> attend every category. one of the reasons why disparate is today as they were inundated to furniture which is a higher market business that they haven't had a dominant position before. wayfarer needs to watch out for that. and groceries taking on wal-mart though we talk about. they're able to pay that. they had a giant fumble. guess of the day. they developed even further and came up with fiasco. it told people into the ecosystem. that's why you have a socket $990 they can go further. this is not going to stop from here. >> you see that each time they are doing something.

a statute and the sun after the debacle. they are not really going to keep trying the keep trying this, but now they've got things like amazon, the look of the show. this desktop device at the screen. it's by the amazon. the late amazon loses to your computer cover three or smartphone. but if they are ever present at the sound of your voice. that's this guy down. they were the first to get into the living room with the voice assisted. maria: now they're trying to keep up. >> including apple. it wasn't just sent the beaches talk to. they changed again the market. talk about all the places they are going. they have this template for how they're delivering stuff. that's why they tend to bring in these markets because they tend to outdo competitors already there. >> they win academy awards with manchester by the sea otters

manchester studios. >> is an expensive thing. the connection to amazon prime in the video business for this start creating their own content. they are far behind netflix on a video on demand. they are not nearly as paid but they've got a lot of noise. dagen: they are getting close and forcing netflix to pay a lot for content and potentially overpaid. look no further than ideal with martin scorsese for the movie the mainstream studios in hollywood that he would want to touch. maria:.assist in all prices because even google i heard they are paying big checks in terms of content. this guide you to the original content. basically triggering all these online guys to pay big checks. >> apple is starting to get in. maria: they want to go against the studios. >> at the big posterior for competition because everybody
6:27 am
believes there is an opportunity to win. everyone is ready to spend money loose money. when you look at amazon's earnings, they still make a ton of money for the retail space where they are selling stuff to people and they still have tremendous cost of inventory and evenness. dagen: that's my point. amazon can afford to pay for content could netflix not so much because netflix doesn't have the business. >> they will air football games for thursday night said they will lead in the forefront and that is huge, too. that was not a costly deal because the nfl understands what it means to be on amazon. >> an academy award. nfl football. this is big, big stuff. dagen: that's what i'm saying. >> twitter put football on apple tv. it didn't really make a big difference. >> because the management has stumbled and fumbled.

the pacific. >> this is going to happen every other day. how should we respond in a way that we actually stop these things or slow it down. i think we are having those conversations this week and i hope that we can come up with a final solution. maria: more on the rising tensions coming up this morning. worldpool betting on america stance, importing washing machines claiming unfair practices by north korean rivals samsung and lg. markets are mixed this morning. take a look at futures, flat opening for the broader averages, dow industrials down 1 point. in europe markets are mixed, also close to flat line as you can see there. ftse up. in asia overnight.

6:34 am
>> it's very difficult, we are talking about intercepting in space hundreds of miles of altitude with thousands of miles per hour. it's hitting a bullet with a bullet. maria: wow, joining us commander. >> good morning, maria. maria: your thoughts on the u.s. testing this missile amid north korea tensions in. >> i think it's a great test and wonderful that's successfully done. the big problem that we still face that we only have done five for eight. when you look at percentages, if you're looking at the nuclear war head, we need to up that and more expense. it is a great milestone and achievement to do that. maria: we know that north korea keeps firing the missiles, what should the u.s. be doing and how do we know that in fact, we are reining them in at all?
6:35 am
>> the biggest thing we need to do right now while north korea represents a threat we have to look at the work between iran and north korea but more importantly we need to focus a lot more effort on china. we need to have the chinese help solve this so we can denuclear ized the peninsula. dagen: commander, it's dagen mcdowell, have you seen any evidence that china is going to step up in that way and do that very thing? >> yes, very slowly the chinese are beginning to tighten down oncor intea, gas prices are going up in north korea, chinese are limit connections financially and economically, that's what we need to see. right now we haven't seen anything otherwise and that's where the key is going the lie. china has to be the wasn't that is going to apply pressure
6:36 am
because they are the ones that maintain industrials, financials and economic links to keep that country afloat. >> good morning, it's scott benson. one question that i heard yesterday after test was announced and the successful outcome also was broadcast was why would the u.s. make this public ahead of time, what's the public relation strategy here? i have a few theories but what do you think? >> obviously the united states want to send signal to both north koreans and the chinese. clearly when you look at the limited number of miilthat is we have available up in alaska and in california, they are nogoing to shoot down every missile that could possibly get shot at the united states, however, it is going to serve as an effective deterrent in the initial stages should -- should north korea decide to launch an attack on the u.s. that's what we need to make sure. we can shoot but we will be able to not only defend but the time then to react and respond back
6:37 am
to them. kevin: hey, commander, it's kevin kelly, sanks have lost efficacy, we heard previous administrations talk and sanctions, sanctions. is that just off the table now and we figured out it's not going to work when it comes to this regime? >> i think it's going to work. the presidency clearly recognizes the threat that north korea threats to destabilizing the region in the world. they realize that the united states is not going to be threatened with nuclear weapons anymore than israel is going to be threatened by iran. at some point, the last thing he wants is a devastating war on the korean peninsula. first and foremost, they are the ones that are going live with the consequences. they understand the problem that it's going to be created. when you look at the number of refugees that would come across their borders, destabilizer in the region. it truly is in the best interest to get the problem solved sooner
6:38 am
maria: commander, let me turn your attention to russia. russian warship and submarine fired missiles in town, what is russia's role in fight against isis, do we believe that they are actually stepping up in this fight? >> i think they are stepping up but there's a secondary agenda that's more important and that's the fact when russia is doing this, let's face it, the united states has years if not decade of cruise missiles with tactic techniques and procedures, russia is now gaining the same operational experience. the more they get an opportunity to shoot, if it's against isis, they are getting a twofe reasonable care, they are killing terrorists and gaining operational experience with capable weapon system that has a conventional and nuclear war head capability.
6:39 am
maria: we should be happy about that in. >> i think we should be happy that they are killing terrorists but given russians an opportunity to exercise their missiles obviously has unintended consequence that is we need to keep an eye on. kevin: commander, one of the issues that they saw they backed the syrian regime that has continuously used chemical weapons, is there going to come a point where u.s. will not tolerate russia's influence in syria? >> we have to work with the russians to be able that assad does not use chemical weapons again. we clearly sent signal when they fired tomahawk missiles where chemical attacks were launched from, they understand that it's a red line that's not going to be tolerated and we are not going to hold to red line and that's very important. the world needs to understand, use of chemical weapons cannot be tolerated. maria: commander, let me change
6:40 am
gears, you joined the bikers to honor nation's heros for memorial day. you met another rider, secretary rex tillerson. what an experience, tell us about it? >> it's really an organization whose primary mission to make sure that the nation never forget the prisoners of war and missing in action from all the war that is the united states has been involved in. we want to make sure that we bring those people home. participating in rolling thunder for me 17 years of doing it ever since i got the motorcycle that i ordered right before the attack on uss cole, having people involved like that, truly shows that we have a connection with the american people and this administration for that issue of the pow and mia's, absolutely, wonderful. dagen: what do you ride? >> harley davidson 20001. custom colors, maroon and gray. dagen: thank you, sir. made in america.

before the stadium opened. >> the seats are overpriced, period. dagen: the food at cityfield is better and who doesn't love the mets, matt. maria: we had them here. >> food is good at yankee stadium. jared: the food the great. maria: incredible. big numbers there. jared max, catch jar reed on 24/7 or siriusxm. next hour mornings with maria, back in a minute. think again. this is the new new york.

maria: good wednesday morning, welcome back, thanks for being with us. i'm maria bartiromo, happy wednesday, wednesday may 31st, top stories right now 7:00 a.m. on the east coast. president trump takes on the press. the white house says the president will take a center role in getting out his message this comes after confusing overnight. he tweetedthis, despite the constant negative press cofefe, we think he meant coverage. he tweeted out this, who can figure out the true meaning of cofefe, enjoy. new fears in the world of terrorism, the suspected recruiters.
7:01 am
the outrage coming up. airline faces a possible fine after flying unsafe passenger jet over 20 times. what the shocking allegations mean for the embattled airline now. avoiding financial regret. 75% of the country wishes they would have handled their money differently earlier in their lives. major mistakes you can avoid right now. and it is denny's on demand. watch. >> it's here, no it's there. wait, it's everywhere. oh, yeah. denny's online ordering, get whatever you want, first time in the history of history you can have denny's wherever you want. maria: how you can have denny's at your doorstep coming up. we have the chicago purchasing managers index out at 9:45 a.m. eastern today. that'll be a market mover, a lot

[laughter] maria: we have that one coming up this morning. joining me to talk about it fox business dagen mcdowell, recon capital chief investment officer kevin kelly and fox news contributor guy benson is here, great show so far, guys. >> it's been far. that map cracked me up. wisconsin, what's going on in wisconsin? my home state is new jersey, the most misspelled -- googled search term is twelve.
7:03 am
maria: a lot of people had problems spelling pneumonia. kevin: i had a problem with the covfefe. dagen: that's a good dog name. maria: maybe will turn out to be something. joining the conversation fox news senior judicial analyst andrew napolitano, former ceo of ck restaurants, andy puzder and kt is here to talk about u.s.-german relations. stay with us. big show ahead. we tick it off with our top story, the president will take a lead role in getting out his message. the president should head that role, watch. >> the best messenger is the
7:04 am
president himself, that the american resoundly chose him as their president because he understands the frustrations and concerns an values of the american people and he's probably the best person to communicate that. maria: this as communications director that michael dubke will leave post. why the rich get richer and the coauthor of two books written with donald trump robert is with us. robert, good to see you. >> thank you, nice being in the studio. maria: nice to have you here because you wrote two books with president trump and we want to get behind that and find out what your thoughts are. how effective do you believe the president's messaging has been so far? >> i think it's been extremely effective. i worked with him for about 12 years. what saddens me is how we use russia and tweets and we miss the big picture.
7:05 am
for example, when he was at nato, i thought that was wonderful. either pay up or shut up, you know, that's called leadership, that's called leadership. he's not in a popularity contest like obama was and hillary. i'm not republican or democrat but it's about time we had a leer that says either you pay up or shut up or we done participate in here and that's leadership. maria: the media is not reporting that. >> no. maria: talking about the russian investigation. >> and that's trumped up. dagen: wait, we talk about tweets and we talk about russia because the president of the united states himself is tweeting about russia. maria: right. dagen: this morning. that's why we talk about it. we would not talk -- we are going to talk about what the president says and what the president tweets but he's part of the problem, robert. >> i have to agree with you. he's a good friend of mine and i respect him. everybody says why doesn't he stop tweeting, then people won't
7:06 am
have nothing to talk about. maria: he would still have connectivity with audience, but he should focus on the agenda during tweets. tell me where tax reform is, tell me where the health care bill stands. kevin: he's making his own issues here. when he's attacking the intelligence community and we are surprised there's leaks and he attacks the mainstream media and then he says he doesn't get the coverage, well, it's because you did that to yourself. you're attacking these people and you expect them to play along and play nice with you when the leader of the free world is attacking people's livelihood when they attack. maria: cnn hates him regardless of what the president says, if you look at the banners, they hate him. kevin: it's a couple of issues at hand, he keeps attacking them and they attack him and he doesn't stay on message about the agenda.
7:07 am
>> he should have said something about calling nato out. he's not going to get tax reform passed now because it's all about other things. maria: last night he broke the internet by tweeting this and it was late, it was after midnight he says despite the constant negative press cofefe. we are guessing this is coverage, some speculate the negative media coverage. he never finished the post, it was liked more than 74,000 times. making it the most popular tweet in months. the president has since deleted the tweet and he tweeted this last hour, he's making fun of this hour, who can figure out the true meaning of covfefe enjoy. >> he's having too good of a time. i agree with you he has self-inflicted wound. i want to defend my friend here. we finally have a leader but he's also kind of on the tweets
7:08 am
all of the time to me, we finally have a guy that calls out people whether or not, it's not a popularity contest right now. we are in serious trouble so i'm happy to defend my friend ib spite of tweeting. kevin: why isn't he using communications directors and relying on them? dagen: the washington editorial page entitled the white house mess writes it's impossible to run a communications operation or a policy shop if the top man prefers chaotic make it up as you go management and there's a lot of reporting that's in this editorial, they write members of congress tell us they have no clear idea whom to talk to with a question about specific policy. so we are sitting around here from the time that president trump was elected talking about please get us tax reform, please get us a corporate tax rate cut, please get us obamacare repealed, please, please, please and you have at least an organization that's in disarray.
7:09 am
>> here is the last tine of that editorial today in the wall street journal, if mr. trump can't show more personal discipline, the fair conclusion would be that he likes the chaos, you know him very well, you've worked with him, does he thrive in chaos? >> yes. he's a hard-core entrepreneur. i'm an entrepreneur and bureaucrats and entrepreneurs just naturally all over the world don't mix but he's off the cuff a lot of the times but he's a great guy to work with, he's fair. the thing i love about the guy is he listens, and makes up his mind, maybe too quickly but makes up his mind and not afraid of taking people on which is what i respect at this time. he could be more presidential but he's not a bureaucrat and we had bureaucrats for so many years now.
7:10 am
dagen: critical importance of having a management team on who you can rely an giving them good direction and there are some people on his team, steve bannon has his minions leaking stuff to the media about other people within the administration. maria: do you think the president is aware of that? do you think that's true? >> like for me, personally, i have to have a ceo, somebody who is an operator so a true entrepreneur really should not be ceo. maria: that would be the white house chief of staff. >> correct. maria: the question is does he remove reince priebus as the white house chief of staff sooner rather than later and who does he put in there? dagen: or give reince priebus the authority to make decisions and communicate with him in a way that he can actually manage the legislative process.
7:11 am
>> if you're trying to run the white house as chief of staff and every single day there's a new report rum ors and whispers are you're going to be gone and shipped off to greece as embassador, that's going to be a very destabilizing feeling when you're trying to do your actual job. kevin: the moral of the story, something needs to change. >> i'm glad that we have a leader, that's all i'm saying. the style i don't necessarily agree with but i have tremendous respect for a guy who will take them on. maria: yeah. >> i'm tired of political correctness and acknowledge you guys and fox standing by him no matter what. maria: we don't stand him no matter what. we call it out specially dagen is calling out the good and the bad but we definitely heard our audience and they are supportive of president trump but i would say that's how we call it out. >> we are not 93% negative on the guy like cnn. maria: that's correct. dagen: we are actually rooting for his policies agenda or
7:12 am
better america, better health care, we are rooting for better tax system and better economy because we deserve better than 3% growth which we haven't gotten in a decade. maria: that's absolutely right. the policies. robert, great to see you, thank you so much. coming up ariana grande gives back, benefit concert for those affected in the manchester bombing, details straight ahead. troubles in the skies, flu a plane 23 times that was not air worthy. the staggering fine back in a moment next.

7:18 am
about young son seeing image of his father deheaded i can imagine is disturbing specially when you're hearing criticism all of the time. trump just broke the internet because everybody was talking about the griffin thing and now you the president tweeting about it and that's what we are going to talk about. dagen: she said in the apology, now that i'm seeing the reaction, see, again, it's not about that she believes that it was wrong, it's that she -- she regrets doing it because of the backlash. >> i'm not here to defend her, i think this was a publicity stunt and in that sense it's working, when you demand an apology for someone and does it, accept the apology. maria: it's a half-baked apology. >> correct. kevin: she also knew this and knew she was going to get backlash and more disrespectful to the president as well as disrespectful to our troops. dagen: you're standing there
7:19 am
with the fake head of the president of the united states covered in blood and you don't think that that's repulsive -- maria: in an age where some maniac group called isis is chopping people's heads off. dagen: you're apologizing after the fact when people don't get your joke which is a load of you know what. maria: it doesn't work that way. dagen: it does not. maria: cnn says it's devaluating knew year's coverage. dagen: if they put her on tv, are you going to watch it? kevin: didn't before, not going to now. >> exactly.

7:24 am
having these kinds of regrets? >> well, i think the number one thing to avoid regret is to take action. youhave to be intentional in hey, if i take the right kind of actions, i have the right progress. maria: how do you do that if you don't have enough savings for retirement or in a job, can you catch up? >> i think so. listen, despite what people say, america is the land of opportunity, what you have to do is get up and get out and find extra job, sell some stuff, we have to learn how to hustle and grind every day to chase down progress. maria: that's hard. dagen: can that be learned as an adult? >> i think we can. i really do. you have to tap into people's motivation and find out what drives them, what gets them going and if you're a parent of a young teenager or millennial, we have to teach them work ethic out there not just sitting around playing video games but getting out and earning some
7:25 am
money. kevin: my main question is what's the best way for people to save, they have this regret, what's the first thing they should take, i'm going to attack my credit card debt, i'm going to all of a sudden just start saving a set amount per month whether it's to take down the credit card debt and put in a retirement account, what's the first thick that they should do, they had this paralisi, what should they do? >> a mistake can happen. what you don't want to do is repeat the mistake. you're serious about making financial problems i'm going to encourage people to attack the debt first, make it a list of smallest to biggest and really start going. when you start attacking smallest to biggest you gain momentum and then you gain confidence and you start believing that you can do it. >> hey, chris, let's talk about nipping this in the bud, at what point high schools should be
7:26 am
teaching basic financial literacy to make sure there are red flags for the kids? >> we have a curriculum called foundation. if you don't learn how to deal with it properly, it'll deal with you and you will never, ever make progress. >> i never understood that, that's fine, but like what are you going to do use trigonometry. why is that not a core of curriculum. maria: more practical. dagen: it's almost like home economics, learning thousand manage yourself and it's something missing. >> life skill. dagen: exactly. maria: chris, good stuff. final word. >> i was going to say i've never used the pathagroithm in life.

with that one coming up. most of the time i eat lunch at my desk. >> i need the break. i need the time to take a lunch. there is fallout on that. officials will provide the zoning board properly denies the proposal. last week the group looks to build the mosque and they filed a federal lawsuit against the city. they were illegally rejecting a mosque.
7:33 am
judge, good to see. >> we do had two cases. there is a case in bedminster new jersey. the obama justice department filed a lawsuit against the town. to decide whether to rezone a neighborhood for a mosque than that have a used to rezone a neighborhood for a church. in that case was settled yesterday for three and half million dollars. the bulk of the settlement going to attorney fees. the mosque will be built as planned. the case was not tried before a federal judge. they persuaded of the town and it probably should cough up the money. the attorneys fees and go to the government they go to the lawyers for the mosque. it's an interesting case because it was filed by the obama justice department and
7:34 am
settled by the trump justice department. there is no u.s. attorney in new jersey. this is not settled by a person appointed by donald trump. this was settled by career lawyers still in the u.s. attorney's office. the case is just beginning. in this case of the the term administration initiated the lawsuit. did the city use a different standard when deciding to deny a zoning approval for the construction of a mosque. we will see her goes. it's a problem in the united states today. it is a problem meaning the cities or certain localities are not putting mosques up. it's an institutional bias against muslims. they're using that and making
7:35 am
it more difficult for them to worship. it requires that the government not use religion for any test whatsoever. if they're going to change the construction of the church it will have to use the same one for using the construction of a mosque. as dictated by the supreme court. bowing to fight the federal appeals court decision announced late last week. the doj could fire their first appeal. what is a likelihood that the supreme court hears this case. it's really into the weeds at this point. we've another case in california in the supreme court would not hear just the one from richmond virginia. i think we can confidently
7:36 am
predict that the night circuit will rule against president trump and so you had two circuits. should i go to the supreme court the answer is yes and no. the reason for yes is because the president needs to have a clarity as to what his power is to affect foreign policy. i've argued that he is the absolute authority in under a federal statute to do this. the reason for no is these cases are not final decisions they are rulings on pulmonary injunctions. and they really get involved in that stage. these two cases. well had to go back to the trial court's for a trial as to whether donald trump violated the constitution in those cases have to make their way up to the supreme court. and they've been looking at what they've said on the campaign trail to do it. they are using the language of
7:37 am
candidate trump against president trump. if you read the order just a document it is sound on the law. if you had been signed by george w. bush or bill clinton or barack obama it would of been upheld by any federal court. because this is so adverse to the language he used when he was a candidate trump they cannot resist the temptation to take that language and undermine the order. it's really anti- muslim. it is probably just -- too much overreach. >> is clearly within the president's authority. does that mean the previous administration and the order is gone. is not effective because he did have a being as well that

7:50 am
now remember when going to a restaurant for lunch during the middle of the workday seemed to happen all the time. kind of like these movie scenes take a look. if you don't bring us to absolute martinis you know how i like them straight up. and then two more after that. every five minutes. >> we are businesswomen from la. we don't have anything like
7:51 am
that. i got a get out here. i think of an illicit. it sounds like some has a because the case of the mondays. that is a thing of the past apparently. resulting in roughly 3.2 billion dollars in lost revenue for restaurants. is there not enough time is dining getting too expensive. >> i bring my lunch here and there. sometimes i go out for one of these carts. do you ever sit down at a restaurant and have a long meal. >> very rare. maybe like once a month.
7:52 am
>> i bring it. do you ever go out to a restaurant in the middle of the workday. >> hardly ever. apparently it is the same reason for people out in la. i just take the lunch and bring it back to my desk and eat there. see mac i don't typically sit down and do a long lunch. and i like to eat at my desk. i like to get out and walk. this is hurting the already struggling restaurant
7:53 am
industry. widening of the cost gap. no restaurants had had to adapt. now today it is raining a raining out here. i would say it's a good day to stay inside for lunch and not go out to a restaurant. >> our business lunch is still important. >> i think a lot of people who work in the suburbs they do go out for lunch. they get in their car and they will drive. they're they are close by. if you've a set business meeting. but for casual leisure he lunch. and also a lot of people working at different time zones and so you could miss things.
7:54 am
you don't want too. you want to get out of work early. so give up the hour. i feel think we should treat us. are we reviving at the the alcoholic drinks at lunch? >> that always makes me blown away. in italy on wednesday afternoons you take the entire afternoon off. maybe that was the day. let's check markets for a second. he made it, at the break. the meeting that we are going to .
7:55 am

8:05 am
making his way to the white house sometime in the 3:00 hour, two issues likely at forefront there, being china and trade, on the former the u.s. is recently provided vietnam with some military assistance as relates to the buildup of islands in the south china sea, and as of trade, this can, of course, has been a signature issue of the president u.s. had a 32-billion-dollar trade deficit with vietnam last year, and as you know the president one of his first actions in office was to signal his intentions to withdraw from trans-pacific partnership trade deal. >> talking about this for a long time, thank you. >> great thing for the american worker we just did. reporter: at the white house, the president will be meeting with the secretary of state rex tillerson, the head of the va dna evidence shelton briefing the media this morning, of course, maria, the we continue to ep could i on what may or may not happen as it relates to the paris climate agreement back to you. maria: we will be back to you
8:06 am
when views developing blake burman at the white house joining us a former cke restaurant ceo, andy good to see you thanks so much for joining us. >> good to be here thank you. >> first tackle vietnam what are you expecting from that meeting today? >> you know, we were one of the when i was ceo of cke one of the first companies, to open restaurants in vietnam, i visiting saigon a couple years ago the entrepreneurial activity building is amazing, really was nothing like what i expected. having been kid grew up in vietnam war era very much they liked americans very positive about america. and very negative about china, so i think that -- that certainly the vietnamese will do everything they can to keep american trade they compete with china, from manufacturing activity been able to keep labor prices lower than china, so getting some of that manufacturing activity, as you may have noticed in some labels in your clothing on occasion so they are very interested, in continuing
8:07 am
trade with united states, i expect a very positive meeting, i think that president trump has very, very good business sense in this respect will do something meaningful with vietnam. >> andy do you think some countries are protectionist about some exports? the discussion around vietnam has to do with -- catfish i do believe, and that that is more for president trump, and especially for the southeastern united states do you think that is going to be the biggest point of contention when it comes to talking with kinds like vietnam? >> look, i think the -- the discussion will probably cover those topics i think it will be more general i think the president is very concerned about -- tactics that are protectionist not going to put up wp it other presidents have he won't, i think the prime minister will come in understanding that see real progress pop. dagen: andy it is dagen mcdowell does this speak to -- could you -- because you know the president and you -- having worked with him on the
8:08 am
campaign trail, last year, his ability to relate to another leader one-on-one, because there is so much criticism of him how he communicates with american people via twitter, but does this -- do you -- do you expect a lot more of this as the president meets with these -- these other leaders? in a more personal setting like this? >> i think you saw that if first indications of how good he is at meeting with leaders one-on-one was meeting he had during the campaign with the president of mexico. where he had been attacking i think immigration issue very hard during the campaign, but they got along very well seems like even at positive discussions about reforming nafta i think it is -- it is a big asset of his, one one meetings he is so impressive i think i am very optimistic about -- about this president's agenda as you know,, and i think of it will be -- this meetinging go over you will see tomorrow, it will
8:09 am
be very positive news about vietnam, except on some of the networks that won't say anything positive about the president no matter what he did. maria: you say positive on agenda do you thingoing to exec then? because, you know, when you look at the resistance out there, whether it is media or left, they are trying very hard to obstruct the agenda and make him a president that doesn't get a lot done. >> the left, when republicans can get their act together look we have already cone regulatory reform, and you are seeing huge impacts from that in economy more people working fewer filing unemployment claims medium house holy income way up we need tax reform we need obamacare reform repealed and replaced and that is something for congress finally got a president promised to do exactly what the republican agenda has been for you know years if not decades, we need to get rid of obamacare, we need to reform the tax code we need republicans to come together on this, they need not to succumb to that immediate pressure the pressure from the left.
8:10 am
that -- they have got to stand up we've got to see is a legislators out there with courage, and conviction. >> on that point you've got the health care bill in the senate now, here to going to probably renovate it significantly, but on tax reform it does seem like republicans are not on the same page, house, senate white house trying to figure out what a unifying plan might be especially on revenue side do you have confidence that they are going to get to the same point eventually and who is going to have to lead on that? it's got to be the president right? the president needs to lead on that, because your -- i mean look, i think paul ryan is a great guy kevin mccarthy a wonderful guy, about those leader mcconnell very very good what he does they need to get together, and -- and pull republicans together, in the the house and senate we finally got control in the the house and senate, although we don't have a filibuster approve majority we've got 52 votes we really need to make progress on these issues and you can't you can't hang on to every deduction, if you are
8:11 am
going to lower tax rates you've got to come forward saying we are going to reduce he go reductions close loop heels generate economic growth try to keep revenue republicans need to come together need to do it fast can't the citil sit on this in is election coming up. dagen: president trump's splugs to get rid of the filibuster, is to push the republicans on that, mitch mcconnell said yesterday there is not a single senator in the majority who wants the rules changed so they can pass this -- this legislation with simple majority so again, there is another impasse between white house and the republicans. maria: if they can't get this done this year they are in big trouble. >> i think a lot of mitch mcconnell like him on personal basis, but i do believe that -- that the -- the "nuclear option" needs to be on the table we need to make progress, i can tell you right now if democrats take criminal of the senate will eliminate the filibuster. so it is not like we are he preserving something around a long time they already cut it
8:12 am
back when harry reid was in there i don't think he they will have qualms advancing the agenda eliminating the filibuster i think our not doing so a mistake i do trust leader mcconnell but we need to make progress on have to. maria: by the way, the 4 trillion-dollar budget spending plan has been criticized because relying on 3% growth numbers. do you think we will see 3% growth numbers sooner rather than later? >>of course, we will the average since world war ii -- 3.3, we had president obama larry summers you very interviewed the other kay all people in obama administration he projecting that coming out of regulation would have 4, 4 1/2% growth i think ridiculous for them saying we only can get 2% growth we only got 2% growth because of the antigrowth policies of the obama administration, aimed at big government income redistribution now progrowth policies they're saying you can't get above 2%.
8:13 am
it is i reallied 3% the administration is saying i think -- these are he businesspeople wanted to underpromise overdeliver i think we will do better than 3% if we get tax reform, obamacare realism the regulatory reform tremendous underreported impact on economic growth. maria: we leave it there andy good stuff thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> thanks, maria. >> joining us there, coming up taking itity far cnn 13 favorite comedian kathy griffin under fire posing with a bloody about mask of president trump her response from backlash from that o to theo shoot coming up. >> good to be queen some women ceos out earnings their male xats what shift maintains for that wage gap we discussed, back in a minute. think again.

8:36 am
>> i think it will weaken the u.s.' position on international stage. and we have seen already, that there was quite some pushback, from the g-7 partners, see that very that might withdraw u.s. from the accord. and for me as i look at foreign relations at the question of how could you be impactful within alliance other places has a lot to do with compromises not -- your partners i think the reactions will be harsh from other side of the atlantic, and i fear that we might spill into further he tensions also on other topics, that actually it doesn't help anyone. >> what do you think went on this past week during the nato meetings? tensions between u.s. and germany obviously heating up, following the president's first overseas trip, as commander in chief this is the president tweeted out yesterday quote we have a massive trade deficit with germany is mr. they pay far less than they should on nato and military.
8:37 am
very bad for the u.s. this will change. what dpoufrng happened last week? >> what do you think happened. >> i think he missed the opportunity to actually negotiate a point where he has a point he has already gained some confirmation from the german side regarding trade surplus for germany no go even to negotiate, angela merkel -- we do have a problem here, so there was a first step towards the same with nato commitment of germany which -- a shame for many, many years angela merkel stepped up said okay we are willing to deliver. but then he is stepping in, in an election year, and he is actually her best campaign manager one thing -- she is stepping up and saying this is reliability from partners gaining and gaining support from german public for that,

does not play into anyone's advancing on both sides of the atlantic, he would have protect a little bit more on i heard your message, you are going to deliver, let's wait until this election is over because now it is causing the opposite causing the opposite will say do we have to deliver for something actually willing to do i don't think that move is very intelligent. >> in terms of germany's position on climate change, though that angela merkel and what they have done in terms of just pouring hundreds of billions of dollars into solar energy, and energy, it is putting a stranglehold on the german economy in fact, the "the wall street journal" editorial page pointed out "der spiegel" said a luxury good coasts soared imbalance push towards green energy why would donald trump want same for united states? it is not asking -- that for

8:40 am
this point, does the president have a point in pressing that question to merkel or anyone else isn't that fair criticism. >> it is fair criticism i say again and again even on this show here, it is -- again. >> to talk about this -- >> but the question is how do you come to success with that. so he got already he got already an answer from the chancellor and others we will deliver. that is something i haven't heard for many, many years coming out of mouth of -- >> then good you you go to brussels standing in front of a new 9/11 memorial when stands for first commitment to article five, by the other member states, helping u.s. after 9/11 committing i lives of young soldiers as well other things then you even scratch the article five commitment out of your speech? and then again you ask the other members to step up with it? have what do you expect someone campaigning at home
