6:03 am
dagen: speaking of presidents, the one still in the oval office, maria talk to president trump. we will have all of the interview coming up in the next three hours and that is our top story this hour. a passport and tax reform. president trump urging lawmakers to adopt the budget this week in order to get that tax bill moving ahead and pass before the end of the year. the president addressing during a conference call with lawmakers that they refer to the effort his tax cut rather than tax refund coming message the president discussed during an interview with maria bartiromo. >> i collect tax cuts created his tax reform also, but i call it tax cut. the biggest tax cuts ever in the history and i think this tremendous appetite, such that he will have the votes for taxes than i will say the fact that health care is so difficult i
6:04 am
think makes the taxes easier. republicans want to get it done. >> they can't get this tax bill done this year. should they forego thanksgiving and christmas? should they be here? >> i think they showed then i think they will. a lot of things are happening. i don't even like them leaving. i will say this. i want to get it by the end of the year but i'd be very disappointed if it took that long. it could be substantially less than that depending that have been good to send the bill back to the house. people will go and make 200 suggestions as opposed to maybe no suggestion because it's a great bill. >> holroyd did an interview that said are insisting they have a fourth bracket. i know that you are very focused on the middle class. you want to raise taxes on the rich? >> he said that on the basis that i wanted or were thinking about it in now way yes. but actually we do have more
6:05 am
brackets because we have a zero bracket and people including i said i would make it a fifth bracket. we may not have that, but i would rather do that they do anything to hurt the middle class. dagen: i want your reaction wrist and were most of the i'd you that there could be a higher bracket or i'm just going to say millionaires like a wild surtax at the time when the president's talking about. >> outside of controversy on the fourth bracket, which was soon, probably wouldn't totally the least completely change the scope of everything. the timeline, gosh, christmas or thanksgiving is probably out. christmas, which is really crazy is considered were talking about august when steve mnuchin talk to our very own neil cavuto. the president gave his first address in february that this could be done in march. to me if they get it done by the end of the year, that's going to
6:06 am
be a miracle. i still believe there's a lot of work left to be done. the fact that so far he talks about rand paul, to me i don't feel like we have them all yet. trying to rand paul didn't vote for the senate. >> issues one of those things that there is a lot of work to be done. it's great to shoot for thanksgiving or christmas but in reality it's probably a 2018 deal. dagen: when you listen to president trump because one of the big talking point on capitol hill in washington is about this as a handout for the very wealthy. that's not the wing which you get from president trump. he seems to be out interpret okay with even higher bracket above 35% for his rich friends. he keeps talking about middle talking about middle class, middle class, middle class. >> here's what i would say. i know about what they i'm surprised i said i like that. i like that he was admitting
6:07 am
that tax cut that is not tax reform. we've been saying this for months. there is no tax reform happening if the budget continues with a continuing resolution will be $1.5 trillion tax cut. to scott's point, allow larger than 1.5 trillion based on whatever the current framework you on the lookout. so to get from whatever it is, to .5 trillion to 5 trillion back to 1.5 trillion there has to be incredible negotiations going on. also come you still have fiscal hawks on the republican side asking for either petco or revenue neutrality and luscious say there's a lot to do between now and whenever it gets passed. >> i agree with you. the president was talking about how tax reform would be easier, it's been over my lifetime they have a dead tax reform. what's really interesting is i
6:08 am
think they learned a lot of lessons from the health care battle knowing how hard this is. there are so many stakeholders here in the tax reform tax cuts debate that that will make us more complicated. i think republican in congress are certainly feeling the pressure. they cannot deliver on this signature id. that it's become because they were unable to get health care done. this puts all the more pressure on them to the president this kind of thing you'd that they will be the ones to be playing next year on the ballot. >> i also think that they were using the words of john f. kennedy and ronald reagan often. look what they both did. john f. kennedy did it when it was 90% rate. trade do so few people pay that for you. >> on record with a 70%. we are at that .5%. that being said, it is a lot different today.
6:09 am
trade do i will argue why it is similar on the corporate side. we always focus on the individual tax cuts and maybe that's where you don't get this giant tax reform. >> stephen moore who talks -- he works for you said before the inauguration this year to get tax reform done because you see the 35% rate for corporations. >> baker passes business tax reform before year-end. trade do something douglas holtz akin said on friday that the court to remind people have for business income is taxed at individual returns. that is either. that aside the pastor ray passed to come below what individuals pay. one thing i will talk about later in the show, there's a discussion about revenue about basically dramatically cutting
6:10 am
the amount of money you could contribute to a 401(k) plan. $18,000 to $2400. talk about the markets going up in someone's face, that's exactly what will happen. >> the creation of the ira and 401(k). >> in the meantime, president trump spoke at length about her social media habit, most notably his use of twitter which he credits as his key to his white house that to read. watch this. >> i think to say don't use social media. i don't collect weeds. we didn't think a typewriter. when i put it out, you put it immediately on the show. i put something out, two seconds later you put it on your show. they are well crafted. i was always a good student. unlike a person who does well with that kind of thing. i doubt i would be here. i get treated very unfairly by
6:11 am
the media and i have a tremendous platform. a 125 million people between twitter and instagram and all of them in facebook. i have a tremendous platform. so when someone says something about me unable to go big, big, big and take care of it. true to your reaction. >> as reporter, we love that he is sending to read because they are statements from the president, the white house. we have to take that for what it is. going around the media, these are kind of directed towards the media. he knows that they will get a lot of coverage. most people are not on twitter. most people are going about their daily lives not engaging on twitter. twitter is a big platform, but it's really geared towards media. he complains a lot about media coverage, which i think is not entirely warranted, but it's also part of his strategy,
6:12 am
tapping to the sentiment among his supporters. such >> i started with the show by saying what i like. let me tell you what i don't like. i think his use of twitter and totally against it. by the way he has 40 million followers. the link of media in his piece that follows it. it's not what the president should be using as his way to communicate. that being said -- dagen: i say keep out of it. give us something to talk about. another billionaire may be running for the presidency. owner of the dallas mavericks, mark cuban seen if he runs for the white house in 202002 as a republican. watch this. >> i'm confused very democrat or republican? >> and fiercely independent. they make you out iran as one or the other. >> may be. >> if you had to choose one or the other.
6:13 am
>> republican. >> of the huge mark cuban fan. >> i'm glad he's running as republican. i think it would be very fascinating. i'd be incredibly surprised if he would run for president. each dagen: again, he's got like parties to go to. >> he has an incredible life right now. >> does he realize that the responsibility is in the commitment? you know what i mean come you can't do that anymore. >> it takes an incredible narcissist to want to be president and not as everyone, not just the current president. that night the plight of mark cuban. we will bring you maria's entire exclusive one-on-one interview with the president throughout this morning.

6:23 am
taking a look at futures this morning. there is no blip in the markets move up. the dow, s&p and nasdaq closing at all-time highs on friday. the dow earlier in the week closing it 23,000 mark for the first time. managing partner and adviser tad oakley. i wonder if the market is not in any potential change at the top of the federal reserve given to just take and monetary policy. >> it could be. i think what happened is they won't make a lot of difference with another economic professor for the last 25 years. i don't see that making a lot of change in the long run. trade to the fact you say that in the market to be feeling that way because one person that
6:24 am
president trump didn't mention was kevin wash. "the wall street journal" wrote on friday in an editorial that john taylor who's teaching at stanford would be a change agent at the federal reserve. do you have somebody come in on the market doesn't know how they might handle this tightening of monetary policy. that's an awful lot of uncertainty for investors. >> one of things that happens is the fed is not in tune and they haven't been in tune with main street. they raise their rates on the short end. but if you look at the 25, 30 year paper, basically still the same. actually it's lower for the year. the market is doing one thing in the fed can control it but they really can't. très duo point out there has been a backup of the tenure yet which closed on friday. that's not even close to the high for this year so far which
6:25 am
was close to to put it. you've seen it a market rally a move. >> which is the reaction you want to see because typically stocks rise, interest rate should go. your point about the long-term interest rate curve, what does that tell you? we are on this hiking path the fed is now on. what is that tell you about the behavior of long-term rates with respect to economic growth going forward? >> it tells me growth won't be what they expect it will be. if you look at consumer prices, everything, we are not getting the move we thought they would get. what that means is the growth numbers probably won't be what this group expects that they put a lot of emphasis on tax reform, that sort of thing. it won't pan out as well as they think it will. >> are you concerned that if tax
6:26 am
reform or tax cuts as the president referred to it over the weekend with berea is delayed at is delayed in all of that would have an effect on the marketplace since you are less concerned with the fed? >> i am not. as >> resisted selling and doing some other things to be a lower capital gains rate. i'm not quite as worried about it as i was. then you look at it this way. 65% of the jobs in this country come from individual businesses and i'm not certain he's doing enough for now. the corporations allow for money is great but they're not spending what they have now. i'm not certain they will create what they expect and they probably could have a negative impact on the market because the average pay your sensei and paying too much already. trade be just in terms of the market the one thing i would raise is the president has spent a lot of time on twitter and
6:27 am
verbally crowing about the stock market. the more he talks about it and tries to take credit for it that he will own and a decline whether it's mild, short run or long-term decline in the market. >> exactly. taking credit for the last several months. trade to a seems like more so. >> this is a white house that means the good news because they don't have legislative accomplishments in congress. things like this are helpful. republicans want to continue talking about this. you have to take the blame for what there's a downturn. dagen: will see what happens on friday when you get the gdp for the most recent quarter and again the economy growing north of 3% for the second quarter, the first reading such on the third quarter expected to come in a 2.7%. if it's worse than expected.

6:32 am
expanding into china. nfl not scoring points with fans, national anthem protests wear on through another sunday, the latest trouble in the empty seats for the league ahead. plus, nfl's suit and tie, justin timberlake headlining super bowl for the first time since controversial performance, well, that happened, we can't show it to you but we can talk about it. whether the big name is enough to win over football fans, tired of protests. 177 companies in the s&p 500 set to report 12,000 stocks, futures are showing gains across the board. same story in europe with gains in engine language, france and germany, biggest winner cac quarante in france and in asia overnight, nikkei a major winner, only loser was hang seng and hong kong.
6:33 am
nikkei up more than 1%. bowe bergdahl will be sentenced today in fort bragg for endangering fellow soldiers by walking off his post. he faces life sentence after admitting guilt of desertion and misbehavior. taliban treated him better than the army. here is this quote, at least the taliban were honest enough to say i'm the guy who is going to cut your throat. here it could be the guy i pass in the corridor who is going to sign the paper that sends me away for life. joining me now former florida congressman fox news contributor lieutenant colonel allen west. your take on this? >> it is absolutely a disgusting to hear what bowe bergdahl just said. we operate in code of conduct in the united states military. i served in several combat
6:34 am
zones, desertions is punishable by death in the military justice, i don't think that's going to happen with bowe bergdahl, he should receive a life imprisonment sentence because he did desert in a combat zone and he put other lives at risk who were doing search and rescue and several of them did lose their lives. i would like to remind your audience that we have an army first lieutenant by the name of clint who ordered firing upon enemy of taliban scouts who were probing his position in afghanistan and he's sitting in prison with 20-year sentence because they said he ordered the firing upon unarmed individuals, so let's talk about what justice really needs to be done here today. dagen: why is bergdahl allowed to even communicate with the prez or the outside? that's why -- he's doing -- it's kind of disgraceful to those whose lives he put at risk by doing this and now he's talking
6:35 am
about the united states. i think that the large reaction on twitter to reading about this was like, well, then send them back. >> yeah, i guess this is part of the kind her gentler army military that we have now. the old-school military that i grew up would probably not have allowed him to do that, he would be sequestered from having these type of interviews, he hurt his own case, if you want to say something like this before you get sentencing, i don't think it's going to go bode well for you. dagen: i want to turn back to capitol hill, there's remarks by senator john mccain in an interview on sunday criticizing american who is avoided the vietnam draft. echoed questions arose during president trump's 2016 campaign. listen to this. >> we drafted the lowest income level of america and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they
6:36 am
had a bone spur, that is wrong. that is wrong. if we are going to ask every american to serve, every american should serve. dagen: colonel, your reaction to that? it seems like senator mccain is taking quite glee in taking shots, continued shots at president trump and trying to provoke him time and again. >> well, in full disclosure, my older brother was a marine who served in vietnam and wounded and my father-in-law who we just layed to rest this summer in arlington cemetery did two tours of vietnam so i have a personal experience with this. i think that you are seeing a running, a continuing feud between the president of the united states and john mccain. i do not agree with the comments as candidate trump when he directed them to mccain. mccain needs to have a high ground and be above this. a lot of people never thought
6:37 am
that we would sustain all volunteer military and we have done quite well. it's important to have young men and women who wanting to out and raise right hand to serve and protect the great nation and unfortunately we had some things that happened in vietnam and we have learned from that and moved on. dagen: that was one of the reason that is i found john kelly's comments last week so moving is because he talked about the greatest percent in the country. i view john kelly's comments very differently than some people on the left. >> that's funny, i was going to ask the colonel about john kelly because it's obviously been incredible debate over the weekend, the first half when he was talking as former general as well as the father of a son currently in the army as well as gold star family member and then the second part where he spoke as really chief of staff and
6:38 am
political -- in a political appointee from the president, what did you think about sarah huckabee's comments that we should not be able to debate with a four star general? >> well, i think that everyone has free speech and freedom of expression and we have a free press in the united states of america but i think that, you know, much the same as general kelly was trying to get people towns, there have to be things that are sacred in the united states of america, we should not be politicizing the loss of a service member, you know, that's someone's spouse, someone's son and to use that as some type of political football, i think that that's what he was getting towards. when i look at somebody like general kelly, incredible service that he's had in the country as enlisted an officer in the marine corps, his son who lost his life and another one that serves in the army, this is what makes america. those are the threw
6:39 am
1 percenters. >> when you use politicizing, rudies appointing in the president using twitter to continue this argument with the congresswoman? >> yeah, i don't think that the president of the united states should be punching down. i said that a lot of times. dagen: you said that a long time, colonel. >> i also think that when you look at federica wilson who observed in congress from south florida, i think she's completely out of line in what she's doing. dagen: thank you for being reasonable and rational and coming on this program time and again, colonel, good to see you, allen west. can we stop picking fights with each other? can we start printing maps for the high road in this country because i think people have lost their way? can google maps put that out so to give people some direction on how to, like, take your higher ground, i think you'd agree with that, colonel? >> i absolutely do. like i said, it starts with the person at the top sending
6:40 am
example for us to all trying to emulate, let's focus on what's happening out there. we have an enemy in northern africa and all through nigeria and also in east africa that we need to confront with. because we reduced the territorial integrity of isis does not mean that the global islamic threat has diminished. dagen: let me ask you about this, u.s. nuclear bombers in 24-hour standby, president trump addressing tensions with north korea in exclusive interview with maria bartiromo. i want your reaction to this. >> china is really helping us and we will see with respect to north korea. with that being said, we are prepared for anything. we are so prepared like you wouldn't believe. dagen: colonel, your take on that? >> well, i like to use the metaphor because i'm a simple old-boy from down in georgia, china is the crack house and north korea is the pit bull and you have to deal with the crack house if you want to get to that pit bull. fact that we are seeing the missile systems that
6:41 am
are north korea's using, those are chinese made, i don't think china is helping to the full extent that they could with kim jong un and the situation there in north korea, neither is china reducing military footprint in the south china sea. there are more things that we could be doing. they are looking at military options that could be implemented in korean pe nip -- peninsula. dagen: colonel allen west, take care, we will see you soon. we will bring you maria's interview with president trump. typhoon went through the country and tens of thousands still in harm's way. slowing down but not stopping, protesting during national anthem continue in week 7 in the nfl "volatile markets."

7:01 am
nasdaq starting the stay at all-time highs. in europe, same story. gaines galore. only one market in asia was down overnight ek up more than 1%. the dark side of the limelight. the new allegations rocking hollywood. they are reporting new issues with google smart phone. we will let you know what to watch out for. plus streamlining checkout. beefing up for a public debut. we will talk with the ceo is the fast casual change ahead of the ipo on the nasdaq today. tiny houses are big business.
7:02 am
how even amazon is cashing in on the growing trend by delivering a roof over your head. curate me to break it all down this morning. the former economic advisor. i want to get right to present trump in the mario bartiromo. she is sitting down for an exclusive interview on tax reform overhaul health counter and rolling back regulations. let's watch. >> mister president thank you so much for sitting down with me today. the dow jones industrial average just hit 23,000 and largely because of this into as a patient and hope that your policies will get implemented. tell us where we stand on the
7:03 am
tax plan right now. we are doing very well. the budget is indirectly past. it will end up again doing very well and i think we're can get our taxes. hopefully before the end of the year. it may be much sooner than that. there is a great spirit for. it is tax reform also. it will be the biggest cuts ever in the history of this country. i think this tremendous appetite and spirit for it. not only by the people we are dealing with in congress. the people out there that want to see something. almost $5,000 average per individual per group. i'm really looking forward to it. let's see what happens. do you think you have the boats. -- the votes. i think rand paul will vote for the tax cuts. other people we have
7:04 am
tremendous enthusiasm this time. healthcare i was told was tougher but it was close. so far i would say it's not even a contest and i will tell you speaking of healthcare i believe we will get that also. it will be in the form of black grants to different states. ministry properly in smaller doses where you can really do it much more individually. i think will get that also. in a little bit later probably in three to four months from now. well had that long before the election as far as taxes are concerned you can see what's happening. it's really doing well. great enthusiasm. i have looked at it very strongly and pretty much we could do almost what they are getting i think he is a tremendous person i don't know senator murray i hear very good things. i know that lamar alexander is a fine man and he is there to do good for the people.
7:05 am
we can do pretty much what we have to do with that. the secretary has tremendously way under the obama plans. it was so messed up. they have no choice but to give the secretary leeway. here she would have to be changing all the time. we can pretty much do everything we have to do just the way it is. we are going to repeal and replace obama care. and we actually have the votes. i think we actually have the votes for that. we were one short and i i think we can have the votes for that also. even your supporters say he has fantastic policies we want to see this through but the bickering and the feuding x-ray actually gets in the way. i see the feuding with senator corker. i think there's a personal thing going on between you and senator mccain.
7:06 am
and sometimes it helps to be honest with you. we will see what happens at the end. sometimes it helps. sometimes it gets people to get and do what they're supposed to be doing. that's the way it is. for the most part they want what is right also. we will see what happens but i do believe we have the votes for healthcare at the appropriate time. i think well have well have the votes for taxes. the fact that healthcare is so difficult i think it makes it easier. the republicans want to get it done. it is a tremendous tax cut especially for the middle class and especially for business. we are losing our companies. i have to say since i've been elected that's really stopped and it's really slow down. there is a tremendous enthusiasm for business in this country. a lot of things have changed. if they can't get the tax bill done this year should they
7:07 am
forgo thanksgiving and christmas. i think they should and i think they well. as can be right after that. i want to get it by the end of the year but i'd be very disappointed if it took that long. it could be substantially less than that opinion of what happens when we send the bill back to the house. as opposed to maybe no suggestions. it is going to be a great bill. we are adjusting so that there is no way that the middle class does not greatly benefit. there is a method under which it could be that some people in the middle metaclass won't benefit as much as we want. i think we are can have it sooner rather than later. paul ryan has been interviewed and said that you were insistent that you're the fourth bracket.
7:08 am
do you want to raise taxes on the rich with the fourth bracket. in that way yes. actually we do have those four brackets. that would actually make it a fifth bracket as opposed to an eight bracket on the other side. i call it our competition which is the competition of the past. when paul said that. and we may not had that. but i would rather do that than do anything to hurt the middle class. i followed your policies really closely. the state and local income tax deduction and elimination you elimination you take that away and then you go to a fifth bracket or a fourth bracket. can you get a higher rate for the top earners. if they pay 80% of taxes why are you so afraid to cut taxes on those top earners. i'm very happy with the way i have done business in my
7:09 am
personal life. is about me representing rich people. and being representative of those. it was very interesting and bob kraft was down. he owns the patriots. he gave me a super bowl ring a month ago. it was very nice. a beautiful ring. i immediately give it to the white house and they put it someplace. he said to me you have to do is all a favor give the tax decrease to the middle class. we don't need it. we don't want it. give it to the middle class. i've had many people tell me the same thing. very few say i want more i want more. the middle class has really not done very well over the last long. of time so when paul mentions maybe one more were category i would rather not had.
7:10 am
the only reason i do have this. if i feel like the middle class is not being properly taken care of. that is a big factor. bringing the corporate tax down as is maybe the most important. bringing it down from 35 down to 20% that is massive. it's a big deal on the corporate rate for sure. i think one of the other ones is expensive. when you write something off in one year as opposed to over many years i think that's can be tremendous. we have so many things in this plan that will be for growth and the next question is can be deficits at all. i fully understand that. we all understand it. and if we pick up one point on gdp that's $2.5 trillion. more than pays for everything. and i think we pick up much more than one point. morgan hit three sooner than
7:11 am
later. we hit 3.2. we haven't been there in a long time. it's been a long time. as you know. the previous administration did not hit it for the year for eight years. here we have it in an early quarter. before that it was down in the one. i became friendly with leaders of other large countries and i would say how you're doing. were not doing well. gdp is at 7%. we are not happy. and i'm saying we head at 1%. so i really think that we can do much more than that. but one point is to an half a a half trillion dollars and millions of jobs let me ask about the recording of the democrats recently.
7:12 am
i feel like the republicans get bullied by the left. by the whole talking point of it's always tax cuts for the rich. >> that's an automatic talking point. does it seem doesn't seem like it. schumer i like him. but before he knows the plans he says this is for the rich. he doesn't know what the plan is. he did it with healthcare two. this is for the rich. your neck and get your coverage. everybody is going to go into hospitals and this can be terrible. the world is coming to an end. did not even know what the plan was. he said that. i saw him two days ago. before he really knew what was happening. he said no it's for the rich. is an automatic statement. you go back and forth. i've always gotten along with him.
7:13 am
is it helpful in terms of negotiation. but i met with the senate finance committee. i met with publicans and democrats together right across the hallway. two days ago we have a great meeting we have fantastic meeting. there is a lot of similarity. they want tax cuts also. and they want him to as fast as possible. they don't want to say and they are saying the middle class i called the working people because they are really the working people the middle class doesn't benefit. as a standard that they know it. they are the big beneficiaries. the other big beneficiary is jobs. it's been my priority. if you look at what i've done between regulations. than any president has cut during the entire term that they are in. the federal pages are down 30% under that. i've just begun.
7:14 am
there's really a lot more. i think i can double it before it's over. a lot of it is statutory rehab to give a 90 day notice. then had to give a hundred 20 day. we are going to be doing a lot more. but if you look at keystone pipeline. they were all dead projects. stay tuned for more of the exclusive interview with president trump throughout the morning including what he says on g janet yellen and the federal reserve. thirty-eight women reportedly accusing him of sexual harassment. trouble for google's pixel phone. why they are reporting issues, problems with their screens. that straight ahead. my name is jeff sheldon,
