the hard line with china spooked investors. lauren: welcome to "fbn: a.m.." good morning. happy monday. i'm lauren simonetti. cheryl: good morning, everybody. i'm cheryl casone. of course, the big news, the markets this morning. lauren: the tweets that rocked global markets and a stern warning is coming for china from president trump. this is what he tweeted over the weekend. for 10 months china has been paying tariffs to the usa of 2 a 5% of $50 billion of high tech and 10% on other goods. these payments are partially responsible for our great economic results. the 10% will go up to 25% on friday. $325 billion of additional goods sent to the u.s. by china remain untaxed but will be shortly at a rate of 25%. the tariffs paid to the usa have had little impact on product costs, mostly borne by china.
5:03 am
the trade deal with china continues but too he slowly as they attempt to renegotiate. cheryl: larry kudlow clarified the be president's remarks. listen. >> the president is i think issuing a warning here. we've made great progress. we want to be optimistic. but if it doesn't work out, then i think what the president is saying in today's tweet is that we will continue the tariffs. we believe that's in the best interest of the united states. and china has got to end its unfair, nonreciprocal trading system, they're breaking the laws. we hope they'll come around with this deal. cheryl: china maintaining that a trade delegation is preparing to come to the u.s. to continue talks, but the chinese vice premier's trip is in question right now. let's bring in trade economist tori whiting. what do you make of the new threat from the president of
5:04 am
jumping the tariffs to 25% by i friday and additional tariffs on new goods? and we've never seen this tariffs before. this is the president of the united states' story. >> here's the thing, cheryl. i think the proposed tariffs or threatened tariffs are counter-productive to what the administration is trying to do vis-a-vis china. there have been gains it seems like in the negotiations and we need to focus on eliminating the tariffs that have been imposed thus far, not increasing the taxes on the american people. the things that could see taxes under this threat are apple products and clothing and regular consumer goods. this would have a direct impact on the american people. cheryl: i was looking at some companies that have maximum sales exposure to china. wynn resorts, 70% revenue exposure to china, qualcomm, apple, 20%. it's american companies. the heritage foundation has been clear on this, this is a tax on the american consumer. the president is taking a hard
5:05 am
line negotiationing tactic. can we see past that to the fact that a better deal could be on the horizon with china, based on the president's moves? >> you're absolutely correct, the heritage foundation has been saying for 45 years, since the institution was established, that tariffs are taxes on the american people. i think that what we've seen is that the president's negotiating tactics with china have not borne fruit whfruit-car -- not . we're looking at futures right now, down more than 500. cheryl: goldman sachs put out a note, before the news, had that the chinese delegation was still coming, again, the vice premier is the question mark. they said whether or not the delegation comes on may 8th, that's the biggest question. they said this lowers the idea that there's going to be a successful deal. they say that all of this back and forth and the global market
5:06 am
selloff this morning lowers the chances of a deal. do you agree? >> i'm optimistic an agreement will come to fruition. my fear is this additional pressure will result in a watered down agreement between the u.s. and china. we're talking about intense negotiation that's cover a wide swath of issues and that takes time. and the continued pressure by the administration to get something on the table rather than the right deal could be counter productive to the ultimate goal. cheryl: we're looking at qualcomm, that stock down more than 4.5%, intel stocks we have to watch, as we look at the trade policy that could be in jeopardy and the talks could be in jeopardy. tori whiting, thank you very much for being here. we appreciate it. thank you for your time. >> thank you. lauren: a major admission from boeing contributeing to the red we're seeing for the dow this morning. boeing says it knew about the problem with the 737 max safety alert system for about a year before it fold the faa and the

-- told the faa and the airlines. boeing said they discovered the problem shortly after the jet was put into flight in 2017 and didn't believe it would affect the aircraft's safety. they said it was after the second accident that boeing became more forth coming about the problem. boeing shares are set to chop some 70 points out of the dow jones industrial average. cheryl: dow futures off 522 right now. also breaking overnight, the u.s. is sending iran a clear and unmistakable message. an aircraft carrier and strike group have been deployed to the middle east after a report that iran may have been deploying military forces. >> reporter: a defense official told the associated press that
5:08 am
there were clear indications that iran forces were preparing to attack u.s. forces in the region, both on land and at sea. in response, the u.s. is sending a bomber task force to the middle east along with the strike group, including several destroyers. john bolton said the purpose is, quote, to send a clear and unmistakable message to the iranian regime that any attack on the united states' interests or those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force. on his way to europe a meeting, mike pompeo says the u.s. has been working on this move for a little while and told profiters that it's the case that we've seen actions from the iranians and we will hold the iranians accountable for attacks on american interests. this is just the latest move by the trump administration in its effort to exert maximum pressure on iran to change its aggressive
5:09 am
and destabilizing behavior in the region. however, last week on fox news sunday, iran's foreign minister was defiant, telling chris wallace president trump's strategy will not work. >> but i believe president trump's intention to put pressure, the policy of maximum pressure on iran, in order to bring iran to its knees so that we will succumb to pressure is doomed to failure. >> reporter: the trump administration is reportedly considering additional sanctions against iran. less than a month ago the white house took the step of designating iran's islamic revolutiorevolutionary guard a t institution. tensions are ongoing. lauren: thank you very much. cheryl: garrett, thank you. breaking overnight, israel and palestinian leaders appear to have reached a cease fire in gaza. palestinian officials say an agreement was reached this

maybe profits for a u.s. company. that's a real stretch. sorry. lauren: we have another big week for earnings, even though we're well through the earnings season. disney is a big name r reporting, about 55 other s&p companies report this week. all-in, what's your take on earnings so far? i mean, no earnings recession. >> look, we were pricing global recession in the fourth quarter. that's why the markets corrected. lauren: is that back on the table? >> not yet. if this thing were to get horrific, it would. that was one of the things that put the markets to go down. first quarter, the gdp over 3%, unemployment numbers have been fantastic, this economy is not sliding off the edge. earnings have been holding up, but remember, they were really reduced. the earnings numbers were really lowered. so we are starting to improve. we might get to high single digits by year-end but nothing spectacular, but no recession in earnings which is good news. lauren: what does the fed do with all this? >> they sit on the lines.

5:43 am
impeach attorney general bill barr. is this a legal road that they want to go down? it's got be tough one. >> it absolutely is going to be a tough one. while the house is democratic majority, the senate is not. so it's almost a deadened. dead end. realistically, this is going to be a political balance test for the dems. are they going to go after bill barr who quite frankly be a pretty good job while democrats were essentially standing on a political soap box instead of asking questions to get more information about the mueller report. and he did a good job of giving these pointed answers. so is this something that the democrats are going to want to do, likely resulting in an unsuccessful impeachment attempt? it seems like that that could be a problem for them from a political point of view. cheryl: well, they're not stopping. in fact, i want you to listen to representative david sisiline on fox news sunday yesterday. >> the members of the committee need to see the full report and supporting documents so we can
5:44 am
continue to do our work, conduct oversight in a responsible and sober way. cheryl: it's the legal side of this, how much power do they have from a congressional standpoint. >> ab absolutely. with respect to seeing the full report, there was a lightly redacted report that was made available. there are certain portions that legally cannot be turned over. bill barr had done the right thing with respect to whats was released and what has not been released. so, look, only time will tell. i do think we may see mueller actually testify and a lot of that is going to depend on bill barr's decision. he said i'm not going to stop mueller from testifying. whether or not the president's tweet this week changes the game, only time will tell. cheryl: i want to show you, because chuck schumer tweeted about this, he said first donald trump tried to fire mueller,
5:45 am
refused to be interviewed by mueller, now he's trying to silence mueller. chuck schumer is pointing the finger at the president. criminal contempt, that's something congress has used in the past. they could use it against bill barr and robert mueller. criminal contempt is something that would have to go to the courts if they take this road. how possible is that. >> >> criminal and civil contempt would have to go to the courts. i don't think you would see criminal contempt. if you see civil contempt it's something that's not going to come to any fruition because its takes such a long time to work its way through the courts. it's a lot of running around without getting to an actual result. so more time-consuming investigations and, look, we spent astronomical resources and time for a 400 page report. maybe it's time to move on. cheryl: maybe they need to move on instead of dragging this out into the 2020 election. that's another side of the store rim misty, thank you. lauren: let's take a look at
