to handle some of the outpoints with the trade deals in china, and you know the surplus that basically we were getting deficit they're having is a surplus in the balance of payments but thing is is that, it is a little more cay yacht pick i think than he anticipated, and i also that it is taking longer than he anticipated negotiating with chinese it is not the sail as negotiating with mexico. and i think people are starting to feel the volatility in lose confidence in that. so i think that's sort of where the criticism is coming from. they don't want trade talks to push into recession and it's hard to take the toothpaste out of the tube. >> signed as well francis great to have you again. >> thank you, cheryl. all right so surplus from central bank around the world sparking a global rally this morning. u.s. futures -- jumping 209 points, s&p 500 futures up 23 this morning still ahead warning from president trump over a potential trade deal with china. but are the presidents and his advisors sending mixed messages?

reciprocate and a huawei license so huawei can do business with some of our u.s. tech companies. is that after the tariff delay, the tariff reprieve do you think this olive branch will work? >> well you know i think in the situation right now, the administration is looking into trying to -- give the economy or the, you know, economic talks mrp of a chance here due to the fact that there are some speculation going on whether we might be on the brook of a recession so there, you know we're trying to figure out a situation and how can we wallet how can we calm down that the markets so allowing the tech company to do some sort of negotiation is necessary. >> you know, but the administration especially if you're looking to the sunday talk shows they were saying that -- look, what's going on with china is only we're winning the trade wars so far. about and all a of the money, all of the money coming in from these tariffs on chinese
imports, maybe should go back to the taxpayers take a listen to this exchange. >> by the way, senator rick scott of florida very smart guy made an interesting idea proposal on another network last had week he said look, why don't we take the tariffs from the china trade and turn those bag to the taxpayers in the form of tax cuts? >> is that feasible? >> i don't think so. i think in a situation with regard to the tariff and trade war, no one really wins in this. so as you can see just recently with the markets being rattled you know the dow jones went down about 800 points not too longing ago. so i don't think in terms of long-term efnghts that that both sides are going to win in this situation. >> thank you so much for your perpghtive this morning. >> thank you. all right dow up 211 and premarket president trump also saying that --

was to say one his online fund raising has dwindled you compare against elizabeth warren who the go a huge online pop when she was talking about impeaching president trump back in april or pete is bringing in i think 185,000 dollars day. the front runner here from the polls -- isn't the front run where it comes to money what does that mean? >> well show there's a enthews yasm gap between biden base of voters and where he's getting his money from. joe bidessen i believe has a second high fest on a billionaire to its campaign. its campaign currently resolve around going to the high level fund raising retreats. 2700 dollar dinners, and the campaigns are rely on those and it isn't going during retailic mrs. in states like ohio and new hampshire and explain a lot of that fund raising issues. >> but what about talk last week about his allies or his aids
excuse me kind of suggesting maybe to pull him back off the campaign trail a little bit. what does that say about the state play within biden camp. >> there's kind of two thought that are being discussed. one is that you just let joe be joe this was a guy who still maintains its relatively high -- not the popularity old boss barack obama still a popular former president. and it is not necessarily clear if biden if he can just keep 30, 35% of support in the polls he might still get the nodges so might as well let him be himself. oarngd, but on the other hand e yes. let's hide him a little bit. that's usually a golden rule in presidential politics is when your candidate messes up for a little bit and maybe keep them fund raising to keep the cash up. >> of he's going for moderate voter he said republicanses good republican out there. real qk toipght ask you about an opinion piece in the journal
this week that talk about elizabeth warren weakness and fact that if her biggest campaign promise and bragging right is that she beats scott brown for a senate seat, she's a democrat in massachusetts just to be clear. here is she losing kind of her -- her luster if you will? >> well i think that's hard to say. i think she certainly has a moment from the democratic primary. primary field, with that being said, about i do think that's a good point. elizabeth warren i don't think is that popular within massachusetts. i don't know if she could even easily win the massachusetts primary. she hadn't had had a tough election but she's not running necessarily on her past as a senator but running on her plan and vision for future i think that's the way she's going to battle off those concerns. >> joe. simonson great to have you here and have you back soon. thank you, sir. >> thank you . well a controversial movie the hunt canceled, earlier this month but now a producer says it
