5:04 am
our farmers when retaliating. democrats and republicans are supporting the president's strategy so far. senator chuck grassley says, quote, that president trump shouldn't give up on securing an enforceable agreement that holds china accountable for its abusive trade practices, stalling, bullying tactics and threatthreats shouldn't be rewa. patrick shanahan says for china everything is integrated, the mill you tri, the law, trade, but he thinks it is possible to get china to have a trade agreement. >> i think we have very smart, capable negotiators. we need to level the field. we want china to play by the rules. >> reporter: and last week trade sources told us the vice premier of china told the u.s. delegation there's nothing more he can do, it's up to the two presidents to work it out. lauren: edward, thank you. the new china tariffs hitting $60 billion of u.s. goods like

5:06 am
office. >> we'll see what happens. it will be a bad problem for iran if something happens, i can tell you that. they're not going to be happy. they're not going to be happy people, okay. >> what do you mean by that? >> you can figure it out yourself. they know what i mean by it. cheryl: those strong words from the president following the sabotage of four saudi arabian oil tankers yesterday. military officials believe that iran was responsible. now, the u.s. has sent an american aircraft carrier, the lincoln, and b-52 bombers already to the middle east the to counter these possible threats coming from iran. lauren: and a stark warning from the british foreign minister about the possibility of an all-out war between iran and the u.s. >> we are very worried about the risk of a conflict happening by accident with an escalation that is unintended on either side but ends with some kind of conflict. lauren: the new york times is reporting that the increased military response would take

5:08 am
apple responding to the ruling, saying in part, we're confident we will prevail when the facts are presented and that the app store is not a monopoly by any metric. cheryl: another major court defeat for the maker of roundup. a jury awarded $2 billion to a california couple who blamed roundurounduproundup weed killeg their cancer. this is the third straight loss for bayer which bought monsanto last year. they are facing more than 13,000 lawsuits tying roundup to cancer, one of the most popular weed killers in the u.s. and it's been in use in the country since the 1970s. lauren: uber stock dropping 11% on its second day as a public company. it's now 18% below the ipo price of $45. the ceo sent an e-mail to employees writing this, remember that the facebook and amazon

lauren: president trump sounding optimistic that there will be a trade deal with china, adding we'll know if there's been success in three to four weeks. can investors afford to be so patient? we ask the ceo of hudson valley investment advisors and michael santo, thanks for joining us. can investors be patient in three to four weeks' time as the president says, gus? >> i think right now it's a wait and see. you ended up having a period where you're going through earnings, most of that's past us apand let's face it, right now in this negotiation tactic you keep getting the president saying that something's on the come, something's on the come. margins have pulled back. a lot of that's because of
5:15 am
technology. over 50% of our sales in tech go overseas and china's a big market for. lauren: we also look at the attitude and climate and discourse that's happening in china. if you look at the people's daily, their newspaper and on their we chat account, this is what they wrote. the full screen we're showing you is in mandarin. fleeing othenegotiate,sure. fight, any time, bully us, wishful thinking. there's a sense of deyou ph of d how does that affect trade talks? >> it shows the rhetoric the president is using is misguided. you don't want to trigger a nationalist backlash. a trade war is a lose-lose for the united states and china. lauren: it is lose-lose. consumers and businesses get caught in the middle. we saw that china retaliated,
5:16 am
they slapped tariffs on our goods headed there. there's so much more that they can do, right? >> yes, they can basically let things rot at the dock if it's agriculture products. they can delay deliveries. we just came from an industrial conference over the past week. we're hearing there's movement to malaysia, singapore and india for a lot of the factories we're using for supply chains in the united states that use overseas labor. so there are ways the united states can actually inflict even more stress on the relationship if need be. lauren: or if the president says maybe just get manufacturers to make stuff here in the u.s. bloomburg is reporting there's at least 10 bulk carriers of u.s. goods in transit to china. is there a real fear that china will cancel these orders and say no, no, no, turn around, we're not accepting these orders? >> it's difficult to say the exact mechanics of what they
5:17 am
would do if the trade war escalates. but i have to disagree a little bit. i think in some ways, china actually has the upper hand over president trump because of the fact that presidential election is coming fairly soon. so if they call his bluff and allow this to escalate -- i don't think it will happen and the future markets seem to suggest right now the market doesn't think it's going to happen, i hope the market's right on this but if they call his bluff they could trigger a global recession, hoping to help him lose the election. so with him facing elections and frankly the them not, they may have the upper hand, even though the u.s. economy is much larger and much more powerful than the u.s. economy. lauren: and maybe, gus, they're looking at the resurgence in the l poll that's we're seeing from the l former vice president, now a major contender for the presidential nomination, joe biden. >> yes, that is a factor.
5:18 am
trump's strongest base is the midwest and that's the same base that joe biden is going to go after and resonate with. you can see that biden may act as a wedge between the u.s. and the chinese in the trade negotiation, based on how he's doing in the polls. lauren: in the meantime, farm ergs arfarmers are getting aid d assistance but many of them say we just want to sell our crops at a fair price. gus, michael, thank you. >> thank you. cheryl: after yesterday's step selloff, a little bit of a different story. we do have green arrows this morning. fallout continues from the china-u.s. trade fight. the s&p is up 15, nasdaq up 56 and-a-half. still ahead, the battle for your retail dollars. walmart's latest push to go toe to toe with amazon is right out of the tech giant's playbook. is this going to win over consumers? plus, if you've ever wanted to punish your neighbor's bad

5:23 am
cambridge analytica scandal and the fallout there. this could be something major for facebook as they've been trying to work with the ftc on the settlement. we know that last month facebook said they put aside $3 billion to potentially pay for this but now they could be facing that oversight as well twitter also having issues. yesterday they announced they inadvertently collected the ios location of some users, they said it was a mistake, that a bug caused this to happen. they let the people know who may have been impacted. this is the fourth time this year that twitter has faced an issue like this. some android users' private tweets have been made public. lauren: speaking of tech, am son facing big he competition right now from walmart. tracee: amazon said they would offer next day delivery. now walmart is stepping up their

lauren: happy tuesday. let's get you caught up on global market action. futures are up 121 points or half a percent for the dow. s&p gaining the same percentage-wise. the nasdaq doing the best, up 60 points in the premarket. we're seeing a similar sentiment in europe, stocks trading green across the board. investors watching, as tensions
5:30 am
build in the middle east. those fears are building in the oil pits. crude prices are trading at $60.91 a barrel, there's concern that further military action could send oil prices even higher. this was the close in asia on tuesday. a arro green arrow in south kor. asia was reacting to our declines yesterday here in the u.s. cheryl: the trade war, to your point. obviously asian markets again lower, feeling the pressure on what's going on between the two countries. and this war between the u.s. and china really is intensifying. could china take further action against the u.s. by beginning to sell u.s. treasuries? they've done this in the past. could they do it again? danielle demartino booth, a former dallas fed advisor and one of my favorites, danielle, good morning. >> good morning. how are you today? cheryl: i read your note every day. i encourage our viewers to
5:31 am
follow you on social media. this is a big question. the journal points out that fear this morning, that there are other retaliatory efforts that china could use and one of them would be to start selling u.s. bonds. they've done it in the past to support their currency. could they do it now in this trade war? >> that's a very good question. a lot of the pressure that's exerted on the chinese economy is coming from channels he other than its exporting channels. there's a lot going on in their currency right now. they could look to that. we don't know for certain. we do suspect that last week's weak treasury auction in our benchmark 10 year may have been boycotted by china because the results came in so much weaker than what had been anticipated. i think people need to keep everything inner perspective. we've got 22 plus trillion dollars of treasuries outstanding. they're very much the largest foreign owner of our debt.
5:32 am
they've got 17.7% of debt holdings. they could indeed make an input but they call it the nuclear option for a good reason. that's because china would be hurting itself just as much because it would be taking down the value of its existing holdings. cheryl: yeah. again, that currency story as well. another interesting part of this that we're starting to kind of realize and talk about is the threat of a recession. morgan stanley just putting out a note, saying this does actually increase the chance of a recession. in fact, michael wilson wrote demand, destruction, ailing confidence increases the potential impact beyond higher costs to the american consumer, likely this would lead to an economic recession. i know it's early in the game, but what do you say? >> look, we're already on our way to an earnings recession. the confidence is the word that we need to key off of the most off of right now. we don't need to be looking at the second and third quarter and say we don't look like earnings are going to recover. if that happens, i think there's the potential because this
5:33 am
economy is more fragile than the headline gdp or headline unemployment rate would suggest. there's the potential to drag us into recession. look at what's happened to financial conditions just over the past few trading days with the stock market coming down. if we were to see interest rates begin to tick up as well, i think that would be very detrimental to u.s. households and corporates who depend on borrowing at cheap rates. cheryl: you also in your note say that, look, cfos are going to start to really have to readjust expectations. this could be an earnings story, depending how long the trade fight continues and investors seem to be losing pair ebbs. patience. thank you for being here as always. great to have you. >> thank you. lauren: joe biden takes back the lead in a new national poll for the 2020 democratic nomination, this as senator bernie sanders and alexandria ocasio-cortez slam his record on climate change. cheryl: we've got griff jenkins live in washington with the division over the green new
5:34 am
deal. griff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, cheryl and lauren. 2020, it's already heating up. in a new poll, joe biden taking a commanding 8 point lead over previous front runner bernie sanders, putting biden at 35%. mayor pete buttigieg is at 8%. before biden got into the race, sanders led 29% to 24%, making this a 13 point swing favoring the former veep. he wa.he beat out 14 other cands in the remaining field. sanders joining forces with congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez rallying for a green revolution. with the architect of the green new deal taking hard aim, though not by name at biden, he was hinting at a more moderate approach to climate change. >> i will be damned if the same
5:35 am
politicians who refuse to act then are going to try to come back today and say we need a middle of the road approach to save our lives. that is too much for me. >> reporter: biden making his first swing through new hampshire since his announcement, sticking to a more pragmatic path. >> we need to finish the green revolution in a way that's rational, we can do it, afford it and get it done now. >> reporter: not everyone is feeling green yesterday. new york city mayor bill di hase blasio held a rally inside trump tower but was heckled by protesters, bo oin oing holding signs that read trump 2020. as a campaign issue, climate change is topping concerns among democratic voters. we hear biden is going to make a major speech on climate by the
5:36 am
end of the month. lauren: griff, thank you so much. cheryl: worst mayor ever, according to . all right. former deputy attorney general rod rosenstein slamming james comey for undermining the work of the justice department. while speaking to leaders in baltimore days after resigning from the doj, rosenstein said comey deserved to be fired. >> there are bright lines that should not be crossed. now the former director seems to be acting as a partisan pundit, selling books and earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my i'm mortal soul. -- immortal soul. that is disappointing. cheryl: comey recently wrote in aop ed that the president, quot, eats your soul in small bites. rod rosenstein vocal at the pulpit there.

5:44 am
hashmi. you heard from biden, he said trump is bravado, no action. if intellectual property is the transgression, he said, what did obama and biden do about it? >> the trade deficit under obama probably slashed in half because of the global recession and basically financial demands of goods and services from china also dropped with it. so there's not much the obama administration an and biden have done and i think donal trump hae more to further negotiations with china and biden seems to say that china really isn't the bad guy here and he's been blasted for it. lauren: our capitol hill producer says that this china dispute can basically determine the outcome of 2020. so i wanted to ask you where you think the democratic candidates in 2020 stand on the china issue. >> well, bernie sanders and elizabeth warren probably are more in agreement with president trump on where they stand on china. there's a lot more economic protectionism going on.
5:45 am
biden and a number of centrist and leaning left democrats don't seem to think china is as big of a threat as, say, russia and that's a problem there because china is probably even a stronger threat than russia, if not equally so. and they seem to be going at it from a moral stance. some democrats have said that china is investing in its people. you can say that's true if they're investing in turning a million -- over a million, invoking thought police throughout the country. there is no moral ebbing vein sigh between the-equivalency between the united states and china. lauren: elizabeth warren says family farmers across the country are being squeezed by the trump administration's terrible policies, our farmers deserve better. do you think she aligns with president trump on china trade. >> a little bit, yes. elizabeth warren was probably more in favor of imposing tariffs against china than many of the other 2020 democratic
