not buy u.s. agriculture. government officials are at an annual retreat. one idea is to further support foreign companies in china, but not just from the u.s. the china economy is still slowing, president trump is looking at this, believing china will need a deal. >> thousands and thousands of companies are leaving china now because of the tariffs and we're in a very good position as to whether or not a deal will be made, i will tell you this, china would like to make a deal very badly. >> reporter: a senior administration official tells me u.s. technology firms are selling to huawei under a temporary general license which expires august 1 a fifth. the process started for companies to get a new license to sell after august 15th. the decisions are at least three weeks away. as firms sell to huawei, a new rule in effect next week will

doing ag purchases anymore and who knows what is next. there is definitely a significant escalation. what is getting missed in owl of the discussion is what does this mean for the american people. lauren: higher prices for things. and then we have this report out of china this morning that shows unexpectedly their exports grew 3.3% in july. what do you make of that? is that because of the weaker currency there or what? >> well, i think the currency is kind of set aside from this. what's mostly i would imagine happening is that china is finding other export markets just like the united states is finding other export markets to try and make up some of the difference when it comes to things not getting traded with one another. for soybeans, the u.s. is trying to sell more for the eu. that doesn't make up for the losses with china but at least helps with some things. lauren: hhelp.lauren: help usf
this. what is the end goal? we find our own supply chains that don't rely on one another? how long does this go on for. >> i think the strategy should be resolving the issues. trade mutually beneficial for the people of both countries. strategy is decoupling, i think that is donald trum troublesomee future of the u.s. economy. it will be a slow and painful process for the supply chains to be changed. that doesn't sit well with us in terms of productivity, efficiency and competitive prices. lauren: in the meantime, are we stuck with the 2%, the obama-style growth that the economy saw where we were looking at 4, potentially 5% before all this. >> president trump should absolutely be paying attention to the growth numbers. it is not a coincidence that these growth numbers are low following a year and-a-half or
so of his trade policy. when you have deregulation the way it's been and tax policy the way it's been under this administration, the clear outlier is a turn away from free trade. if we could get that changed, i think we could see the growth get back up to a good place. lauren: final question, remaining 20 seconds here. what is one thing the u.s. or china could do to just restart negotiations and potentially get something done. a lot of people are saying president trump should say we're not going to go through the with 10% tariff. >> i think that would be a great start. i think both sides need to lower their weapons and agree to restart talks in good faith. lauren: tori whiting, thank you very much. >> thank you. cheryl: well, the holiday shopping season may be a little more crazy than usual for amazon. fed ex is close to severing ties with the company, saying it will stop delivering amazon packages through ground network at the end of the month.

it's unclear if president trump will attend. it's also unknown at this point which technology companies will be present. cheryl: sticking with the president, lauren, he is not letting up his attacks on the federal reserve. mr. trump tweeted again, our problem is the federal reserve is too proud to admit their mistake of acting too fast and tightening too much. and that i was right. they must cut rates bigger and faster and stock their ridiculous quantitative tight owning now. ownen now. -- tightening now. rebecca, i need to start with a couple facts about the president's tweet. first off, the fed last month announced they are going to be ending and have ended quantitative tightening so the president is actually wrong on that. we should add that the two-year and 10 year note is the narrowisnarrowest since april o. this goes into the politics of the trade war and some of the misrepresentations that are happening right now. >> yeah, cheryl, i totally agree with you you.
the president wants an accomodative monetary policy like he believes barack obama got and his economy's been so good that the fed hasn't needed to do that so he's been pushing them because he has seen -- obviously, he wants to escalate the trade war, he wants to make china an issue, he wants to get what he believes is a much better, fairer deal for america and in order to get that he needs a more accomodative monetary policy when the world is reacting and slowing down as a result. cheryl: this goes back to the age-old he question here that we've been debating all week, is it really what's affecting the global markets, is it the federal reserve banks around the world or the trade war with china that's got most global investors pretty nervous. >> it's the cart before the horse or vice versa. they're both so interconnected and related. this is the first president who has taken on china and what he believes are unfair trade
practices, being treated a treay as a third world country but surpassing us in some cases with the gross national product they produce. cheryl: china's economy is slowing down. the import/export data, imports are down for china. when you look at what's happening with the chinese, they can control their currency. there is nothing the president or anybody can do about that. >> yeah, i mean, being a currency manipulator is a very specific label that comes with a lot of repercussions. and again, this is the administration that has the gumption to label them as stuff, with steve mnuchin calling them that. absolutely, cheryl, this is another thing that china has that the united states needs to look at and actually call out.
let's call it out. cheryl: rebecca, we've got some earnings coming out, we already had lyft, we're going to get uber, maybe things can change. i'm trying to be hopeful as we talk about our markets. rebecca, thank you very much. >> free market. cheryl: free markets, i love it. thanks, rebecca. lauren: under attack, backlash over the brand chairman of two massive fitness chains because of his ties to president trump. the boycotts that are brewing this morning. and how one sandwich chain wants to do something about meat balls. it has something to do with the meat part. they've got a beef with that. who it is, coming up. ♪ whoa, whoa, whoa, i just want to feel this moment. ♪ whoa, whoa, whoa. ♪ i just want to feel this moment. ♪

company that owns equinox fitness clubs and soul cycle has reportedly come under fire for being a trump supporter. steven ross is throwing a fundraiser for the president in the ha hamptons tomorrow night. people have been canceling their memberships after they heard about it. this comes after joaquin castro posted a list of san antonio trump supporters on twitter. one of those supporters talk to fox news digital about the post. >> i'm not upset about being advertised. i'm upset about being advertised for the purpose of interfering or having problems in my own business and my own personal life. what was he hoping for, that maybe one of us would get shot? i don't know. lauren: what was the motive behind releasing the names? joining me now is siri kim and
robin bu byro. robin, what was the motive behind releasing the names because it seems it's awfully dangerous personally but also politically for some of these candidates and politicianses. >politicians.>> it certainly isi wouldn't have taken, not one i stand behind. this of course has been said it's public information so they did share it publicly. it doesn't technically fit the definition of docking. if there was a motive behind it, it those have been financial, the same way for example when laura abraham in many people's eyes crossed the line with david hog and he called for a boycott of advertisers. i think that's what they're going for is a boycott of businesses because they're owned by trump supporters. that's the best i can figure. lauren: i want you to respond to that and also if you talk about if you wear a m a aga,
make a america great again hat, you too are targeted for being a trump supporter, so it works the other way too. >> congressman joaquin castro has clearly made a fatal error pour twfor two reasons. one, he outed his own donors. these individuals donated to him and his brother over years in texas. what he's trying to do is make people go after private citizens for he donating and i think whatever the democratic party wants to say about the process, the one thing that robin and i can finally agree upon is this is not okay. and two, as it relates to punching a man to the point he has to go to the hospital because he wears a hat, free and open society and a democracy in the united states should work both ways and it is the selective morality of the liberal elite and individuals who protest places like soul
cycle because it doesn't work for them that only they get to have an opinion and not people like me and not people like the man who wore a maga hat. lauren: we all in this country get to have our opinions but the way we showcase them is often big question mark and getting violent lately. i want to talk about this. the presidential candidates are descending on iowa for the next couple days. former vice president joe biden and the montana governor steve bullock, they kick it off today. as you can see, this event goes through tuesday with pete buttigieg. one person who will not be in iowa today, new york city mayor bill de blasio. he took time last night to talk to sean hannity about his tax plan. watch. >> for folks who make over $2 million income -- >> 70%. >> 70%. >> when you combine everything. >> that means they get to keep 30%. >> you take 70-cents out of every dollar. corporations, what is the top marginal rate for corporations that you want.
>> right now it is way too low. >> give me a number, a ballpark. >> ballpark, between 40 and 50%. lauren: robin, this is more left than any of the other candidates. how desperate is the mayor? >> well, the good news about that is we really don't have to worry about him. he's not qualified in either of the two polling metrics to make the next debate. he polled last in public opinion on both polls for both debates. look, he's only got 7,000 of the 130,000 necessary donor, unique individual donors to meet the criteria. it's a nonstart. his tax plan is -- elizabeth warren's plan makes more sense to me than his does. lauren: so we can count de blasio out. on the left, there is a very strong narrative that if you make money in this country, the government is going to take it from you. >> yes, i think mayor bill dis blas yow is important because he -- bill de blasio is important
because he runs the largest city in the world. he has a management problem, not a money problem. as he was mayor of new york sticks he gave his wife $850 million of new york city taxpayer money for mental health initiative and when questioned about the democratically run new york council, they could not think of a single accomplishment. and two, mayor bill de blasio whos was also campaign manager for hillary clinton in 2016, gave the new york city school system $773 million. so he wants to take your money for programs he likes that don't work at all. that's the voice. lauren: thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. cheryl: well, maryland congressman he'll locongressmans an offer for president trump. >> you know what i want president trump to come to my district. i want him to -- oh, god i want him to come, so bad.
>> have you spoken to him? have you asked him. >> no, i can't get to him. so you all are doing a good job of that, put that in your editorials. i want him to come. i want him to come. i want him to an come and look t entire city. i'll ride with him for hours if he will. cheryl: the president criticized the city and he was called racist for his comments. video from 1999 resurfaced which showed cummings calling the city drug-infested. lauren: i have great news for wine lovers everywhere. there's a new study from columbia and boston university, it says moderate wine drinkers have lower mortality rates than heavy or nondrinkers. it looked at data from 8,000 americans over 16 years. they say it's not clear if the alcohol consumption was
responsible or if it was due to other factors. cheryl: like stress. lauren: like stress. cheryl: okay. well, after yesterday's 600 point plus swing on the dow, a lowe've got green arrows on this thursday. we'll see if this holds. the story really changed yesterday. can't make promises about this. the dow is up 71, s&p up 10 and a quarter, nasdaq up 40. still ahead, more trouble for boeing, another one of its jets may be vulnerable thanks to the software. and two words, bacon intern. could be the opportunity of a lifetime, folks. we're going to tell you about it. keep it here on "fbn: a.m." ♪ because all i need is a beauty and a beat. ♪ who can make my life complete. ♪ (vo) the hamsters, run hopelessly in their cage.
lauren: more potential trouble for boeing, this time for the 787 dream liner. a security researcher reportedly leaked code that could allegedly allow someone to get into a restricted part of the plane's network and control its flight controls, its sensors and entertainment system. boeing denies the claims, adding it has run tests on the potential flaws a that consistent funder the plane's network is not vulnerable to hacking or security risk. cheryl: let's get you caught up
on global market action right now. dow futures after yesterday's swing, we've got green numbers, dow up 77, s&p up 11, nasdaq up 42 and a quarter. now to asia, as the trade war continues between the u.s. and china, a little bit of a recovery on some good china data coming out of their economy. the nikkei, the shanghai, kospi all green. in europe, a lot going on in europe today. do you have green across the board. let's bring in ranko barrett. there's a lot going on. first, let's start with liz trust and her l colleagues in the u.s. trying to make this sell to the trump administration that any type of brexit deal would be good for the u.s., u.k. trade relations. also, you've got the fact that boris johnson is still pushing for what could be a pretty hard exit out of the eu for you. what's the market reaction this morning? >> i think liz's trip to the states is a nice distraction
from brexit, basically. will a u.s. and u.k. trade deal be good for both countries? absolutely. look, it isn't ratified yet. the rat phi cas ratification ofl with the u.k. would be many months in the future. what we're looking at for sterling is just the brexit, wil we leave with a deal on october third and if not -- october 31st and if not how significant will sterling's losses be. cheryl: let's talk about global interest rates. the philippines just cut their interest rate by a quarter point. central banks around the world are doing this, it's a dangerous road, whether it's japan, france, germany, switzerland. these are negative rates in these countries. and then the fed here is cutting rates, china adding stimulus. isn't this banks giving themselves little room, if no room to move?
>> absolutely. i think the interesting thing is that the fed actually, even though they're dealing with the most room to cut in terms of the fact that interest rates in the states are generally higher than elsewhere, actually the fed in practical terms will be constrained by the strong u.s. labor market and the fact that inflation is coming up toward target in the us. the problem is going to be that the fed will struggle to ease as much as the global central banks. as a result, you you'll see the dollar remain very strong and that's a political problem in the states. so really it's going to be a very controversial topic over the next six months where the fed will struggle to take the heat out of the dollar. cheryl: we have been debating the dollar in this country for days, and of course the fed's role in all of this and it's going to certainly continue. thank you for joining us out of london. lauren: speaking of dollars, if you wanted to plan a trip to europe, now might be the right time. cheryl: stronger dollar, tracee carrasco. tracee: that is right. jetblue is adding europe to
its destinations. the air line's ceo said flights from the u.s. will begin in 2021 and said fares will be dramatically lower. netflix making another big deal for content. the award winning creators of game of thrones have signed an exclusive deal with the streamer to write, produce and direct new series and films. hbo, ham so amazon and disney we among the suiters. in the end, netflix scored the powerful pair. meatless meat balls, subway is teaming up for a beyond meat ball sub. they will be available in locations across the country and in canada starting in september. if you love bacon, we've got an internship for you. one lucky person is going to earn $1,000 to spend the day eating bacon. the internship is being offered
