6:06 am
growing its balance sheet once again. it's not quantitative easing, not to juice the economy, resume the balance sheet growth at the october meeting potentially, that's what they're going to be discussing because, again, money got too tight. the federal government is borrowing a deal of money so selling treasuries and then you had the buyer of the federal reserve shrinking how much it was buying. maria: trillion. dagen: thank you. maria: absolutely. we want to talk -- [laughter] maria: of course, everybody knew what you meant obviously, we got mark zuckerberg back on capitol hill, facebook founder meeting with lawmakers today after several meetings yesterday
6:07 am
including one with president trump, here is the picture, zuckerberg on receiving end on harsh criticism, if he was we are use about reform he would sell facebook properties, instagram and what's app, zuckerberg was not receptive to those suggestions at all, what did you think of yesterday's meeting, matt. maria: he has a bill on privacy. >> as at -- an alternative pops up you simply buy them. you try to avoid companies they hate you and take down messages and you go somewhere else and that gets bought up by the same company. >> you're mentioning two separate issues, well, maybe we need modest regulation on privacy, you're talking about the censorship of conservatives,
6:08 am
i don't know what he said about that, devin nunes is suing twitter and we know tulsi gabbard is suing google. >> amazon, face bobbing or google, they control, you just talked about ai in previous segment, they control more and more of our lives in ways we don't even understand it. maybe it's legal, but every american ought to understand fully how much of their privacy, information they think is private is in the hands of a couple of tech zillionaires, dagen mcdowell it was years ago, i feel like 5 years, that the companies need to start policing themselves because if they don't they will see a different fate coming out of washington, we talked about this long time ago and coming to a head now.
6:09 am
dagen: now zuckerberg smooching cheeks and trying to make nice. one thing they are trying to explain is how they are complying with the 5 billion-dollar settlement with the federal trade commission which it made over privacy missteps, a couple of lawmakers who cut out of town and didn't meet with zuckerberg which, again, what are you in dc doing if you're an elected official, i want to call them, jerry moran, senator from kansas, caught early flight home, he heads the senate consumer protection subcommittee and brian, senator from hawaii, head of top democrat on senate's technology also supposed to meet with him and didn't, although he did recently meet with mark zuckerberg in honolulu in the senator's office there, the head of facebook, this is a grave concern the company's behavior, shows up on dc, try to be there.
6:10 am
maria: yeah, for sure, we will see what comes out of this. even conservatives say, we need boundaries for these social media companies. >> absolutely. maria: regulatory boundaries, you usually -- conservatives want small government. >> this is what's crazy about many of these, like i said tech billionaires, whatever you want to call them, masters of the universe, they are hostile to republicans but at the end of the day all democrats including elizabeth warren and bernie sanders -- maria: yeah. >> republicans are their only friends because we are deregulatory, they have done everything they could politically to alienate us. if you have any view protrump, you've had something taken down, victim of censorship and i know it's not government censorship but it's appall to go run your company this way and shut people down. maria: we will see about that,

maria: welcome back, shortage of bank reserves causing overnight repo rate to spike as high as 10% leading the federal reserve to take action, joining us florida banker association ceo alex sánchez, alex, great to see you, thank you so much for joining us. >> thanks for having me on, maria. maria: dagen explained it earlier, what happened this week when rates when to 10%, what happens with the liquidity. >> it's time to look at rules of liquidity that banks have, the banking industry is doing super great right now because of the great economy that we have in
6:21 am
our nation loan demand is high, so banks have a lot of loans, treasuries matured on monday as well, so i think this is something the fed has to monitor on going to the and obviously we don't want to have any short falls into the future especially if and when times get tougher down the road, that will really become more important issue then. maria: you think the banking sector is really strong, but credit unions purchasing 21 u.s. banks since 2018 according to s&p global market intelligence, you want new legislation on credit union? >> that's right, maria, we need to end the charade. hides behind the military veil
6:22 am
and they pay no federal income taxes, they are competing, they are competing against our banks, especially our community banks and, you know, that sector of our bank, provide 50% of the small business loans in the country, so right now our country through tax policy is picking winners and losers by exempting one sector of credit unions and for credit unions what we are propose to go congress would exempt over 90% of the credit union so they could keep their tax loopholes but the big ones, the charade needs to end, golden 1 in california, 10 billion-dollar credit union, paying $120 billion, naming right of arena. that's what a non-for-profit is supposed to be doing. >> maria, we ran into a -- >> they do, we face a trillion
6:23 am
dollar budget shortfall this year, no need to talk about national debt, you cannot have navy federal at $110 billion be tax exempt and pay no taxes at all. they know it, maria. maria: how do they get away from it? as you said how long has then been going on for decades now. powerful lobby in washington that protects that tax loophole, we made a run at it but couldn't crack through it. >> iii want to emphasize leave % of them alone, they are a real credit union, the other ones are not. maria: let me ask you about the health of the banking system and what it means for the economy, in 2006 and 2007 we saw the cracks before the largest selloff and upset in the generation in the financial crisis through the banks and what they were selling, today even though people are talking about a slowdown, potential recession beyond 2020, the banking sector apparently is
6:24 am
quite strong given the capital levels, steven was here, this is what he had to say about the health of the u.s. banks right now. >> the financial system is in good shape, the banking system in the united states is best in the world, you know, i almost feel guilty saying things, some things are actually the best. maria: how do you see? is that just large banks or do you see throughout banking? >> across the industry, maria, regionals, community banks and larger banks, you know, the stress testing that our larger banks get from the fed every year under the worst of economic conditions and they have passed that with, you know, capital in hand, i think puts the u.s. as strongest banking system in the world, really, no question about it. >> but looking at the next year big election year -- >> right.
6:25 am
>> you hear the rhetoric coming out of too big, we have to break them up, we have to change our policies, you know, washington does a lot to screw up the financial health of institutions like banks, when you look forward to next year, do you like what you hear from democrats running for president? >> you know, matt, bernie sanders and elizabeth warren, i don't know if they understand the expressway but i have to tell you, matt, the day that our largest corporations met, maria, have to go to bank of china for credit is the day the country will be in trouble. maria: they owe all of our debt. we need -- aren't we there? >> the regional level and community banks, i think that breaking up any large corporation of free enterprise system is not the right way to go. maria: alex, you live in florida, obviously. >> yes. maria: you are seeing the mass exodus from high-tax states rather like new york, california, they want to go to florida, we just saw that two weeks ago with carl icahn taking
6:26 am
hedge fund, can you characterize what you're seeing? >> i know governor cuomo blamed florida for the budget short fall this year. our governor is governor bush and governor rick scott and now governor desantis working very hard to go to high-tax, high-regulated states to give our story, right now we have 900 people a day moving to florida, amazing what's happening there and did i say there was no personal income tax in florida? [laughter] >> and so florida is doing great, we've diversified our economy. i know matt has strong ties to our state. and so i think our state is -- we are in the position to do really well into the future, maria. maria: yeah, well, the local sales tax in florida is 8.1% but you have no income tax and you've got the estate tax is also -- that's why carl icahn
6:27 am
took his whole fortune. he's saving hundreds of billions of dollars, you're talking about serious money by leaving new york. >> this is like the trump tax bill which people were worried about the limitation on writing off your state and local taxes, but the good news of that, even though that caused trauma, there's rewarding state that have -- maria: maybe push high-taxed states to change policy. dagen: that's not what's going to happen. again, people down in florida can brag about there being, oh, there's no state income tax and i said when alex said that i said not yet because again all the liberals, big-money liberals are moving down to florida. andrew by the lum got very close to being elected, the governor of that state and so, again, that's what happens, you're importing the people from the blue states, so the blue states
6:28 am
get redder and the red states get bluer. >> dagen, great point. maria: didn't that happen in texas n dallas, you're talking about dallas being purple right now. dagen: yes, it is, it'll be interesting to watch the state of texas in the presidential election. >> texas is not a purple state, texas is a red state. >> you just wait moore. >> counties in texas. >> we will win texas big time. [laughter] >> these california voters are not necessarily hard-core conservatives but it's positive that they are fleeing high taxes, so if you're a republican i wouldn't be allergic to that kind of voter coming to your state. >> i agree with dagen and it's hard to really comprehend how people can leave high-tax, high-regulated states, move to an area and vote for the same candidates that will create that type of system, the thing that i
6:29 am
want to say when hertz moved headquarters to florida, residents are still affordable in the state of florida even though in our big cities like miami, that could be a question -- >> it's pretty high. maria: thank you so much, sir, we will see you soon, under the microscope questions surrounding a whistleblower heading the white house inside the political battle next, hitting the waves in husmly, new lexus yacht, yeah, we will have it for you, stay with us.
6:30 am
hold on. it fights tension. seriously, did you take my phone? passenger light on. it even fights...fighting. innovation that keeps people together. the 2020 glc. lease the glc 300 suv for just $479 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease.
6:31 am
nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid.
6:32 am
with sofi, get your credit cards right- by consolidating your credit card debt into one monthly payment. and get your interest rate right. so you can save big. get a no-fee personal loan up to $100k. maria: welcome back, good friday morning, thank you so much for joining us, i'm maria bartiromo, live from washington, d.c., friday september 20th, top stories 6:32 a.m. on the east coast, futures ending week on high note, check this out, s&p 500 needing to end the week up 19 points to close at all-time
6:33 am
high, the dow needs 265 points, we are in record territory, dow industrials up 69 points this morning, s&p up 7 and nasdaq up 25, this after the market ended the day mixed yesterday take a look at the close yesterday on wall street the dow industrials were down 52 but the s&p was up fraction and nasdaq up 5 points, global market this morning look like this. european indices up across the board, the dax index in germany up 24, in asia overnight markets finished like this where we did have weakness in hong kong, but most averages were fractionally moving and they were largely higher, all the stories coming up friday morning but top story this half an hour, top democrats threatening to sue the white house and the intel community over the refusal to release a secret whistleblower complaint, the washington post was first to report the story, it say that is the complaint involves the president of ukraine, president trump is standing his ground, he tweeted this yesterday, another fake news story out there, it
6:34 am
never ends, every time i speak on the phone to foreign leader i understand that there may be many people listening from agencies and not to mention from the other country itself, no problem the president writes, is anybody dumb enough to believe that i would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially heavily populated call. i would only do what is right anyway and only do good for the usa. joining us is the washington examiner editorial director hugo gordon, hugo, good to see you, what do you know about the whistleblower story? >> the thing about the phrase whistleblower is idea that that's impartial, one doesn't know that, it may be the guy or whoever it was that gave the information to the inspector general was impartial, saw something that he or she thought was terribly important, on the other hand, you know, the democrats are being -- crying wolf about president trump for the past 3 years and as we know
6:35 am
from the mueller report, all of the story about the, you know, solution and that sort of thing turned out to be complete dud, we don't know what is going on in here, but it was very interesting that yesterday rudy giuliani candidly said, yes, of course, he asked for help of ukrainians to investigate what he said a joe biden bribing the ukrainians to -- the trump administration wants ukrainians want to look into corruption possibly involving joe biden's son, now all of this is legitimate for the democrats to have a look at, but the democrats always overplay their hand and demand for things are done faster than protocol allows and so i think that they have been crying golf. maria: is this going to blow into something bigger? >> absolutely, democrats have
6:36 am
one way to stop donald trump for a second term and that's corruption, it's all about getting him in a scandal and the latest thing is another version of the deep state and tried to leak all of those conversations with foreign policy leaders in the beginning of the administration, now they are turning towards using using this whistleblower statute, which, maria, has nothing to do with getting the president in legal hot water, it's about management within that agency of which the president is not an employee. maria: well, we know that for 2 years we talked about collusion with russia which was completely, i don't know, made up, yesterday the inspector general michael horowitz testified before congress, you would think that given the fact after michael horowitz testimony, we were waiting for fisa ig, in fact, we were talking about corey lewandowski the day before, never mind
6:37 am
nadler's impeachment circus, the real action was at a wednesday hearing. she write it is following, democrats talk about dedication to oversight and truth and the media keep promising not to let democracy die in darkness, this week's pail of two hearings proves otherwise. >> look, we know that the russia collusion story was a hoax, we definitely know somebody made it up or a number of different people made it up. if you want to do good oversight, you should be looking into who did that and how this thing came about, instead democrats have been interested in conducting what really amounts to show trial of lewandowski, what they are doing this for red meat for the blue base. maria: we know that there are multiple investigations going on looking into the origins of the russia probe, you have john durham, lindsey graham, william barr, all of this is happening right now and yet crickets.
6:38 am
dagen: i always look at the front page to have new york times, their number one story which i always think is the upper-right-hand corner above the fold front page is claim on trump said to involve foreign leader about the whistleblower, the whistleblower issue, but, again, this will come out with bill barr running the justice department, this will come out once the ig report on the fisa abuse and we know it was abuse, when you get a warrant to spy on an american citizen who is working for a presidential campaign and that evidence that they presented was paid for by that said candidate's opponent, will heads roll, will people pay what they did of abuse of investigative powers?
6:39 am
maria: that's right, using our intel agencies, using the tools that we used against terrorists, right, inform antidepressants, wiretapping and we know, our viewers noticed because we saw at fox news, piece of evidence that will come out in the fisa report and has to do with george papadopoulos having conversation with informant, the informant says to him isn't it great you have russia emails, your team will be happy about that and george papadopoulos answers to him and says, no, i would never do something like that, that's treason, all of this is in a transcript because all inform antidepressants are wired when they -- informants and are doing their job, the transcript was never given to fisa court, we will get the report within a month so we will see, do you think they'll be accountability very quickly? >> i do. i think barr will hold people accountable. maria: hugo, good to see you, hugo gordon from washington
6:40 am
examiner, cheryl casone with details there, wow, what an election, cheryl. cheryl: fascinate to go watch all of this maria from our vantage point here, so former military general is declaring victory over prime minister benjamin netanyahu, election results are not official but rejecting that netanyahu's offer to share power. final election results next week. federal judge has blocked new california law that requires presidential candidates to release 5 years of tax returns to appear on the state's primary ballot, the trump campaign is saying it violates constitution to run for president, california expected to appeal. and then there's this, lexus showing off new yacht, the

maria: welcome back, we have breaking news right now, foreign minister of iran is tweeting this morning, here is what he just said, it is not iran that wishes to fight to the last american, rather it is his b team hosts who seem to wish to fight iran to the last american. iran has no desire for war but we will and always have defended our people and our nation writes from iran this morning, a lot of conversation around iran obviously after the saudi oil attack, steve, pompeo called this an act of war.
6:53 am
>> yeah, everything that's come out of the iranians has been very tough talk and by the way, the whole episode, though, is a great example of why it's so important the united states continue to produce domestic energy. maria: true. >> democrats said they want to bring it to an end but the price of oil probably would have spiked up to $80 a barrel had it not been for the u.s., you know, fracking revolution. maria: on the attack it was up 15% but that has come back, now we are looking at rally this morning, up 1% on crude and up 3 quarters on brent this morning, a lot of news out of silicon valley this morning, we are starting start-up valuations, ipo's, lauren simonetti with details. lauren: hey, maria, like unicorn stampede, now chief technology officer is slamming the new tech giants uber and wework calling them, quote, almost worthless. he added that softbank making
6:54 am
huge mistake taking big stake on beth of -- both of them. on the end it doesn't own cars and doesn't employ drivers and this is what he said on wework, office rental company, one to have hybrid companies real estate and tech, but ellison doesn't see how its business model justifies technology, it was once valued at $47 billion, now that could be as little as $10 billion, and maria, you heard a similar sentiment from black stone chairman and ceo steve schwartzman. >> you look at companies like uber and wework, i don't know the way the company the way some people do, but the absolute value that people were talking about, you know, given what the
6:55 am
company actually does, you know, sort of really surprised me, you know, just sort of like an uber valuation would surprise me. lauren: surprised a lot of people, not all bad news, getting valuation of $35 billion, it has clear business model, has a path for growth, basically payments for online transactions, revenues are tie today customers who are increasingly digital. there are also building out into financial services like offering corporate credit cards, something investors understand and then there's airbnb, according direct listing, latest valuation around $30 billion for airbnb and investors want to see the path to profitability and you have road blocks like restrictions in cities like new york city and san francisco that would be challenging for airbnb but then again here is the
6:56 am
solution, airbnb is starting to build their own real estate for the short-term rentals, thank you. maria: yeah, it's interesting because when you hear steve talk about real estate play and say the valuation doesn't make sense, you listen, the largest owner of real estate across the world, black stone group, he was answering the question that i asked him where do you see bubbles from, you know, there you go. he sees a bub until the private market with some of the valuations, i mean, i know the stripe is doing well and you mentioned airbnb but both of the gentlemen mentioned uber and wework. dagen: real quick, maria, stripe is very interesting, it let's online marketing place to collect money via credit card and pay out to customers, just think of the consignment, so when you buy stripe, you get exposure to all of their customers because their business is based on revenue on
6:57 am
underlying customers. lauren: profit for airbnb too. dagen: exactly. maria: former defense secretary leon paneta, fox business exclusive right here. when you open a new account. just another reminder of the value you'll find at fidelity. open an account today.

7:01 am
european indices are higher across the board, cac in paris up 22, and tax index in germany up 18. in asia overnight, markets little changed. the people's bank of china lowered the one year loan rate from 4.25% to 4.2% as the chinese economy continues to slow and the government is providing stimulus. all those stories coming up this friday morning. fox news is reporting that unnamed defense officials are weighing whether to deploy more troops to the middle east. this in the wake of the rising tensions between saudi arabia and iran. i sat down with former defense secretary and cia director leon panetta in a fox business exclusive to get his take on that and a lot more. of course this attack on the saudi oilfields, the administration said it is likely iran. what's your reaction? >> well, there's no question
7:02 am
that if the evidence continues to show that iran was behind this, that it does constitute what secretary pompeo called an a act of war against saudi arabia. i think it is going to demand some kind of response. hopefully that the united states and saudi arabia can agree on. maria: yeah, i mean, the act of war statement is obviously frightening. what kind of a response would you expect from the saudis and more importantly from the united states? >> well, that's why i think frankly as a an ally saudi araba and the united states ought to decide together on the response. as the president himself has mentioned, there are a lot of options here that have to be carefully considered. one of those is military. there's economic. there's diplomatic. there's cyber. there's a number of other options. with regards to the military
7:03 am
option, the problem as we all know is that any time there's a military strike against iran, just based on my own experience as secretary of defense, it was pretty clear that the iranians would respond to that kind of strike by attacking our forces in the region. so we could see a war. and i don't think either the united states or saudi arabia wants to get into another middle eastern war. that leaves the sanctionses, sah the president indicated we're going to move on, increasing the sanctions. i think we can increase our military presence in the gulf as well. i think we could take steps with regards to using cyber, that could paralyze some of the capabilities that iran has. and i do think that it's important that we stress the diplomatic side as well. maria: i think you make so many important points. the issues is, it doesn't feel
7:04 am
like the europe means are solidly on the side of the americans. look how much business has been done even after the sanctions went into place, right. the u.s. had to put waivers in place. the europeans, in some corners, anyway, wanted to continue doing deals on oil and gasoline with iran. >> well, there's no question that the united states pulled out of the nuclear agreement, whether you agree or disagree with that, it obviously did cause some problems with the other countries that were involved in that deal and it created a lot of division here and that's why i think it's important -- i think secretary pompeo understands this, that it's important to try to rebuild that coalition. i mean, if the united states can pull a coalition together with saudi arabia, the uae, great britain, france, germany, russia, china, that would be a very powerful coalition to
7:05 am
confront iran. maria: i spoke with the vice president this week and vice president mike pence seems to think that they're in a desperate position. listen to this. i'd love to get your reaction. people are worried about iran. is the u.s. going to respond to iran attacking the saudi oilfields? >> the iranian economy is literally collapsing. maria: how is this not seen? >> and the activities in the region regarding oil tankers, their support for houthi's, their continued support for terrorism are evidence of increasing desperation by the iranians and while the president said it's likely this attack actually originated in iran, we're going to get to the facts and whatever action that president trump determines is proper, the american people can be confident that we're going to defend our interest, we're going to defend our troops and we're going to defend our allies in the region. maria: do you agree, secretary, that the impact on the economy
7:06 am
is squeezing iran? >> i don't think there's any question but that the increased sanctions have really impacted on the iranian economy. the real question is whether the iranians are fighting other ways -- finding other ways to survive and going to other countries that then provide help in terms of allowing them to continue to survive. and i'm concerned that a lot of that has occurred. maria: but while the administration is trying to isolate iran, there's also a back and forth ha with china. i think they're also trying to get a coalition against bad behavior coming out of china. what is your reaction to this trade fight, spat, debate, whatever you want to call it? we've got meetings this week and of course the higher level meetings coming early october. do you think the u.s. and china can do a deal together? >> well, we certainly hope so.
7:07 am
i worry a great deal. i'm not a believer in trade wars. i think there aren't any winners when it comes to trade wars and very frankly, if this is a prolonged trade war with china, i think it could damage our economy. so for that reason, i think it really is important to try to reach out to continue negotiations with china, to try to see if we can arrive at some kind of agreement. i think both china and the united states are hurting as a result of this trade war. i think the time has come to try to he see if you can find some elements that could be part of a deal. neither side is going to get everything they want. maria: certainly the markets, investors, community want to see a deal which includes open access, market access into china so that american companies can sell to the 1.4 billion person population there and they also from the administrative standpoint want to see china buy more agricultural products, buy more stuff from the u.s. but it's so much bigger than
7:08 am
that in terms of the theft of intellectual property, the forced transfer of technology, not to mention espionage issues. would you agree that the president should take all of those things into consideration or do you think that this administration should do a deal just based on trade and market access and leave the national security issues for another time? >> well, that's really the challenging question right now. look, in dealing with china and i've had to deal with china as secretary of defense and cia director, the best course of action in dealing with china is to have a dialogue. you need to be able to sit down and communicate and discuss and be able to see if you can find consensus. there are going to be differences here. we had differences with regards to security issues. we were very concerned about their militaryizing the south china sea. we were very concerned about their building up their military
7:09 am
capabilities but at the same time when we were negotiating, we were able to develop cooperative efforts in dealing with mutual challenges in the pacific. i think the president has to do the same thing. you put everything on the table. but you have that dialogue and some of those piece pieces may o difficult to put into a deal. you can't hope for the moon here in which you're dealing with every issue of concern in dealing with china. what i would do is focus primarily on the business side and on the trade side to try to see whether or not you can arrive at some agreement and then keep the door open to further discussion on the issues that relate to national security. maria: this is a battle of values at the end of the day, right? you're talking about a communist society versus a democracy. we know what china is doing right now in terms of using facial recognition, ai, tracking their citizens, giving their citizens a score at the end of
7:10 am
the year. know all about what you just mentioned, militaryizing the south china sea, not to mention they've got 250 million dead pigs, diseased pigs that i'm told they're just throwing in the river. i mean, these issues are so different than the issues that america is proud of and focused on. what if there's no deal? would you say that can't be done with the two largest economies? is that a plan? or an option? >> i don't think that is a plan. maria: okay. >> i think that would really produce even more chaos in terms of the world. maria: so farmar gets are -- markets are hoping for a deal. you haven't seen too much disruption and the markets have also not been disrupted by the debt. i want you to put your omb hat back on for us and talk to us about this $22 trillion in debt and why we don't see any fiscal discipline in terms of spending. how do you think the two sides can get together? what's the solution to actual
7:11 am
fiscal discipline, sir? are you worried about the $22 trillion in debt? >> i worry a great deal about that. and that i think is one of the real dangers confronting our future in terms of our economy. cbo has said that. other reputable economists have said that. we're headed towards a financial crisis if we don't begin to deal with that $22 trillion debt. maria: yeah. >> look, we faced deficits in the past when i was in congress in the '80s and a '90s. we faced the same kinds of challenges but there was a bipartisan effort with presidential leadership to sit down and develop budget agreements that put everything on the table, everything on the table. and we negotiated those agreements and as a result of those agreements we balanced the federal budget. the problem today is neither side is really interested in sitting down and dealing with this challenge. maria: yeah. but when you were in the clinton administration, you were a
7:12 am
moderate administration, really reaching across the aisle, trying to get the two sides together. we don't see a whole lot of that right now. what's your reaction to what's going on going into 2020? are you hearing any moderate economic plans, moderate plans for the future on the democrat side or is this setting 2020 up to be socialism versus capitalism? >> well, look, our democracy is not going to work unless both sides are willing to deal with each other. that's the basis of our democracy. i mean, our democracy is based on governing and governing is based on finding consensus. that's how we've survived for over 200 years. that's what our forefathers did. that's what leadership in this country has done for over 200 years. but it requires that both sides, the democrats and the republicans, recognize that they have a responsibility to govern
7:13 am
our country. right now, very frankly, maria, washington is dysfunctional. maria: well, we're already seeing usmca hang in the balance. nafta 2.0. what's your reaction to that? >> well, i think that's another issue that the congress should be acting on, try to get that trade agreement approved so that we can put it in place. i mean, that would actually be a bit of good news for the economy if we could finally get some trade agreement approved by the congress. but right now my concern is because of this dysfunction in washington, neither side is willing to sit down and negotiate and govern and unless that happens, i think our democracy's going to be in trouble. maria: secretary, it's good to have you on the program. thanks so much for your insights. >> nice to be with you, maria. maria: we'll take a short break. when we come back, the rise of artificial intelligence, the

maria: welcome back. trade in focus of course. the u.s. offering tariff exemptions on more than 400 chinese products. the list includes plastic straws, dog leashes, christmas lights. so we're wondering if this means that the two sides are getting together a bit more. i sat down with commerce secretary wilbur ross yesterday and we talked about making a deal between the u.s. and china and whether the chinese could separate issues of trade and national security.
7:23 am
watch. can the president separate the national security issues from the trade issues as china wants? >> if they aren't prepared to give on anything, we're not going to get anywhere. maria: right, right. >> remember, what we need is to correct the big imbalances, not just the current trade deficit, but also the structural imbalances, the impediments to market access, disrespect for intellectual property, forced technology transfers. so it's more complicated than just buying a few more soybeans. maria: and joining us right now is assistant secretary of the treasury for public affairs, monica crowley. nice to see you. first time in this role joining us. >> it's a great honor to support this president and his economic agenda, especially under treasury. maria: i know secretary new chimnuchinhas been working on t. do you think we will get a deal between the u.s. and china.
7:24 am
>> i think this president was elected to deal with intractable problems and china has been taking advantage of the united states and we have a president and economic team including secretary mnuchin, ambassador lighthizer, who are willing to stand up to china to deal with all of the issues that secretary ross and other economic principals have laid out. maria: do you agree we can't do a deal with just buying soybeans and more stuff, that it has to include national security and some of the other issues? >> i'm not going to get into the specifics of the negotiation, but the president, secretary mnuchin, ambassador lighthizer, they've indicated they're not interested in a limited deal with china. that the president has gone down this road for a reason and that is to deal with the fundamental structural challenges that china has put in place and really advantaged over the united states for many, many years. maria: steve, i just feel like the president has been the one to educate us on really the bad behavior coming out of china. for him to walk back and say no,
7:25 am
no, no, we're going to do a small deal now and a larger deal later, i can't see how he can do that. >> i'm of two minds of this. obviously, the president is fighting the right fight. i'm totally in support of this epic battle with china. but look, i'm hoping for -- i would take a small deal at this point. i would love your reaction to this. i mean, this isn't going to get resolved in the next year or two. this is going to go on for years and years and years, this dispute with china. it just seems to me, maria, if he can get even a small deal, they're talking about maybe a temporary deal, that gets trump over the hump on the economy. maria: you lose all leverage. they want the tariffs off. >> then the economy booms, you get him reelected and then he spends the second term -- what do you think about that scenario. >> the president and others involved in the negotiations have indicated the president is not interested in a limited deal. many presidents, both parties have kicked this can down the road for a long time.
7:26 am
the president chooses not to ignore what got china to be an industrial super power, which is illegal subsidies of state owned enterprises, forced technology transfers, intellectual property threats. >> you're saying you don't think there will be any temporary deal. >> i'm not talking about the specifics of the negotiations. i'm talking about what the president indicated thus far. maria: you just got back from hong kong. >> right. maria: what was that like. you've got 2 million people on the streets. did that provide pressure for xi-jinping? is that helping president trump and steven mnuchin. >.>> it's a third of the population. there's an outcry, not just kids, students or young people. the real question under this relationship with china, at the end of the day, how is the human being treated under the communist regime and does america anymore care about human rights? and it's all playing in hong kong where, maria, they believe that if the hoppin hong kong ecy
7:27 am
catches a cold, china will catch the flu and it could really cause change if they have economic hardship. maria: you wonder if this is wrapped up in that conversation as well because there are human rights offenses and real bad stuff going on in terms of tracking of citizens, et cetera. but i've got to get your take on 2020 while you're here, monica, because we have new fox news poll numbers on the state of the economy, 43% of voters say that president trump's policies are hurting the economy. that's up from 38% in may and it those do with the trade issues. usmca hangs in the balance. nancy pelosi won't bring it to the floor. china, we don't know where that stands. is that slowing the economy, are these uncertainties slowing the economy? >> we would hope that speaker pelosi would bring usmca to the floor for a vote, we would hope she would do the right thing for american workers, american businesses, farmers, ranchers, they all need this deal, they
7:28 am
all want this deal. we are confident if she were to bring it to the floor, it would pass. that would be an extraordinary thing. maria: some managers are sitting on cash in the meantime. you went from 3.1% growth in the first quarter, 2.1% growth in the second quarter. maybe there's hurt before there's gain? >> i think, looksin this presids elected to be a disrupter and deal with long-standing issues. i think most american workers, certainly the farmers understand we need to withstand some short-term pain in order to get these structural reforms done in china, to get the usmca passed, so that our economy now is going to be on a level playing field and american jobs and workers will benefit. >> monica, we all want the president to index capital gains for inflation. it's been a big issue. you're at the treasury department. what's the scuttlebutt on that? can we get that done? >> making that arrestingment for a long time, steve.
7:29 am

7:35 am
he is saying that he will drop out of 2020, matt shlapp, your reaction. >> what this means is as the democratic race thins and it's inevitable that it thins socialist supporters and candidates, it will move most likely to elizabeth warren, maybe a bit to bernie sanders. i think it's inevitable that joe biden continues to drop in these polls. >> do you think that biden can't get the -- there's a big issue about whether biden can ever get a majority of those voters. >> biden started off -- he started off at his highest point and has done nothing but come down. he's already behind, de blasio s supporters will go to -- maria: there was not a lot of confidence that he would get to the top from the get-go. there is a lot of criticism about his managing of new york as well. >> he got a whole 1% of the democratic base. it wasn't much of a presidential
7:36 am

you didn't even mention, dagen, the schools, the schools are horrible. do we really want the united states to be more like newark and chicago. maria: we've got to move on because we want to get that breaking news out but we are all in on artificial intelligence. joining us right now is artificial intelligence national security commission member, kasadena mcfarland. you are also -- tell me what you do on your day job, in addition to being on this commission. >> i'm also able to be working with the national academies of science as their chair of the army's research and development board and some other areas like the board science application center. maria: we're going to broadcast this on sunday night. we did a one hour special on artificial intelligence and we know that a.i. is changing our lives for the better in many ways, getting ahead of disease for healthcare, helping in transportation. it will mean the loss of jobs so that's part of the special. how is a.i. being used in the military and tell us about the
7:39 am
ethical issues that have come around the implementation of a.i. >> well, a.i. is very new to all of our department in the sense of how it's being able to be brought to the infrastructure. because our infrastructure is quite old. you could trace that back, frankly, to the bottoms-up review that went down during the clinton administration where we took a third of our assets and resources out. so it's very difficult to really jump to the new age of artificial intelligence at large but we need to because there are aspects of artificial intelligence that are going to be very important to our war fighters and that is to be able to unburden them to be able to focus on what they need to do. you could say artificial inp telintelljens is august -- intee is augmented. it allows people to do things quicker, more informed, more accurately. if you take a look at what artificial intelligence in our current use, it's very narrow, it allows us to make ourselves more efficient and effective.
7:40 am
maria: you know, there are so many legs to this story and the whole reason that there's this commission that was set up, you are on this commission along with eric schmidt, along with people from amazon, microsoft, really important technology, it's because a.i. is so powerful that there's -- it sparked a debate on how to implement it. >> absolutely. maria: in an ethical way. >> yes. we are an ethical society. what we really need to worry about is our -- say, our competitive peers or adversaries may not be so value-oriented. our ethical society will be always the programmers of what we do and our values will always be seen in what we do. one of the things that being on the board does, i see the industry side and they're very, very geared towards helping the military do their business better and this is an avenue where efficiency and effectiveity and cost reductions can be bought to bear.
7:41 am
people talk about the reduction in jobs but in fact, we're struggling to find enough people. we call it the war for talent, right. we're trying to get people to o this and have a flexible mind, can understand how to implement this. maria: you just hit on something when you said earlier about what our add veer rareli e doing. china is using a.i. in a different way. they are tracking their citizens, where facial recognition sparked a big debate. is china ahead of us on the use of a.i. >> i wouldn't say -- i would say in general they have more people focused on a.i. whether that means ahead or not, still a debate. i think in certain areas we still take the lead, particularly in research and development. we don't adapt it fast enough. maria: you were just in hong kong. did you see a lot of facial recognition cameras there. >> this is what beijing uses to crack down on people who are trying to protest against communism and human rights
7:42 am
abuses. we're in a different kind of arms race with china. we're the innovators. we have to get serious about what the struggle is about. >> china integrated the military and civilian world. any innovation they realize in the economic areas of commercial application they take and adapt for the mill. maria:military.maria: i'm scrad to understand why google has an a.i. lab in beijing. they walked away from the pentagon contract and now they're working in china. >> i think a lot of it's being informed. we've had a very negative narrative in this country about a.i. they talk sky net. i can't help but wonder if that's not shaped, right. we have a free and public society where we consider everybodies' freedom of speech, whether citizens or not to help shape our communications. so i think it's very important that we understand that our adversaries or competitors, however we want to characterize, are in an economic and military battle with us. maria: you think jobs will be
7:43 am
created? >> absolutely. maria: we don't know those jobs. >> when we look at what we have, we're very much atune to using artificial intelligence an apply those techniques to improving the efficiency and effectiveity of our war fighters. we're struggling to find that talent. it's not a question of somebody not wanting to work. it's very challenging to find people who have those skills and we need more of them and we need to look at education and how we have characterized education for decades and decades and maybe we need to broaden our aspects. maybe it's not just a degree. there's other ways of bringing people to the table. you know. technical schools, something that's somewhere in between high school and university and college that allows us to have a broader aspect and bring more people into our workforce. maria: really an important conversation. thank you for your service and for being on this commission. >> thank you so much for having us. maria: good to have you today. be sure to join us on sunday night for my special, artificial intelligence, the coming

7:45 am
january 2017. so it's been almost three years that they haven't had access to this iconic, kind of like the louvre, this is something steve jobs particularly wanted and this flagship store here on fifth avenue, this is the first time we've seen it in close to three years. we got a special sneak preview inside yesterday. let me show you. this is the new apple fifth avenue flagship. yes, it closed in january 2017 but now it's reopened to the public and more people visit here than the statue of liberty. more than 57 million since 2007. what's new about this? take a look at the natural lights. there's more light here because we have 62 skylights. we are also lower in the ground by seven feet and this by the way is also where they're showing the new lineup of the iphone 11s. now, speaking of the iphone 11, i got my hands on one of these brand-new phones and the buzz is that it has one of the best camera systems in the
7:46 am
market on any smartphone, also longer battery life as well and preorders have been pretty good. apple really needs it right now since we have seen slowing iphone sales the past couple of quarters and they are shifting towards services but if you take a look around here, a lot of these are preorders. they're very interested in the hardware. maria: all right, susan, great reporting. i can't wait to see that phone up close and personal. coming up, the assistant to the president for trade and manufacturing policy, peter navarro will join us on set, give us an update on usmca and his take on china talks as the talks between the world's two largest economies enter day two. back in a minute. isn't it all u when it comes to your money? so. what's on your mind? we are a 97-year-old firm built for right now. edward jones. it's time for investing to feel individual.

7:50 am
simmering trade tensions, it is day two of a face-to-face talk between deputy trade negotiations from the united states and china many. here in washington, d.c. negotiations coming ahead of high level talks which are happening early october. a new fox news poll shows that 45% of registered voters say that tariffs on imports from other countries hurt the u.s. economy. 31% say it helps and 12% say there is no difference. joining me right now is the assistant to president trump and the director of office of trade and manufacturing policy, peter navarro. it's good to see you. >> great to be here. maria: we have a lot to talk about. we have to talk about china and usmca. first, a word on china. what are we going to learn from these guys being in washington these next couple of days? what's your best expectation? >> the deputies are coming in for two days. the big show is when the chief negotiator for china sits down with bob lighthizer sometime in the next couple weeks. i think the issue's going to be where the negotiations will
7:51 am
start from. will they start from where they left off when china reneged on 150 page deal or not. so let's -- those negotiations take place and hope for the best. maria: the president said americans are not paying for the tariffs. >> that is absolutely correct. china is paying for the tariffs in three ways. they are slashing their prices. they crushed their currency, it's down by almost 12% now. the biggest part of the pain china is experiencing, and i don't think they understood this was going to happen, is that the supply chain is fleeing china right now and a that is a long-term trend. i'm not even sure a deal is going to stop that unless it's a deal that they agree to soon because people are leaving china. because of a lot of things, high wages, the pollution, but also the fact that they don't want their technology taken by the
7:52 am
chinese government. maria: these are long-term things. you can't just overnight say i'm leaving china, going to vietnam and then six months later say i'll go back to china. once it starts, it starts. >> that's correct. irreversible trend. it takes place quicker for some than others. some factories can leave in a matter of weeks, some it takes a lot longer but boy, they're leaving china of fast. maria: and yet senator amy klobuchar critical of the tariffs imposed on china, she said they have a great impact on our economy. i want to get your reaction to what she said in the last debate. watch. >> you've actually supported the tariffs on steel. >> what we've got right now though, george, it's not a focused tariff on steel. what he has done here, he has assessed these tariffs on our allies, he has put us in the middle of this trade war and he is treating our farmers and workers like poker chips in one of his bankrupt casinos and if
7:53 am
we are not careful he is going to bankrupt this country. one forecast said it has already cost us 300,000 jobs. maria: 300,000 jobs. >> i love that quote. this is a klobuchar new math. remember the new math. let's thinker about this. president trump has created over 6 million jobs, he's created over half a million manufacturing jobs and we got the lowest unemployment rates for blacks, hispanics, womens, disabled and veterans. where are those lost 300 jobs? they're not in due lieutenant d. i've been in duluth, i've stood on the mere pier, watching the pellets head out. that from klobuchar, they need to get their act together. if they're claiming kind of job losses in this kind of economy, they're just dead wrong. maria: the broader point -- i don't know where she got her
7:54 am
numbers. >> i know where, mark zande of mood ian lit ex who was -- moody analytics who was the clinton clone during the campaign. i used to d do battle with that guy all the time, just totally bankrupt economics. think about that. they're saying we lost 300,000 jobs and we have the strongest economy and lowest unemployment rate in history. maria: things are slowing down. you've got 3.1% growth in the first quarter, 2.1% in the second quarter, the uncertainty over china and usmca. >> thank you, jay powell. thank you, jay powell. usmca,let's think about this relative to china. we export five times more product to mexico and canada than we do to china. that's why this deal -- usmca trade volume is twice that of china and mexico or canada is the largest trading partner for 44 states in america. so right there i'm looking at capitol hill, they need to put
7:55 am
that usmca on the floor and get it passed within the next 30 days because that will be a catastrophe for america if we don't get that passed. maria: yesterday, kevin mccarthy said if it doesn't get done by thanksgiving it's not getting done. what's plan b? what do you do? what if she doesn't bring it to the floor? >> i'm not going to plan b until plan a is off the table. i think everybody on capitol hill understands resolve of this president and this has to be something where we transcend politics. i believe nancy pelosi will do that. i've known nancy pelosi. i think on this issue she realizes if she doesn't do the right thing, labor, corporations, farmers, ranchers r, manufacturers, workers are all going to be hit in all 50 days manufacture doe. maria: does the american worker have a guarantee they're going to make a good wage versus their mexican counterparts who apparently are making $1.50 an hour. >> the beauty of this -- robert
7:56 am
lighthizer he created a beautiful vision for this. it's called he domestic content rule. 75% of the domestic content of autos has to be within the usmca zone but 40 to 45% has to have wages at at least $16 an hour. so what that does, it means that we'll get our fair share in mexico, those jobs won't be going to the giant sucking sound south. everybody wins, mexico wins, canada wins, we win. we become the he global hub for manufacturing again. that's good. that's why this has to pass. that's why we need to stay focused right now on usmca. maria: is that going to have a boost on the economy once it does pass, do you think. >> it's a beautiful thing. it's a point of growth according to the international trade commission, 75,000 auto jobs, hundreds of thousands of other jobs and we get two other things like digital which the old nafta didn't handle. we need to have nafta a as deads

8:54 am
is what the iranian foreign minister mohammed chabad zarif is saying would happen if a military strike on iran, i spoke exclusively earlier in the program with former defense secretary leon panetta about tensions with iran here is what he said. >> with regards to military option the problem as we all know is that -- any time there's -- a military strike, against iran, just based on my own experience as secretary of defense, it was pretty clear that the iranians would respond to that kind of strike, by twoogdz oattacking fn the region we could see war i don't think either united states or saudi arabia wants to get into another middle eastern war. . >> basically what you said as well, how should u.s. respond? >> i think we've got to focus first and foremost what our goal should be, our goal should be ensuring safety and security of the american
8:55 am
people. now, this cycle of retaliation that secretary penn panetta was just talking about iran is retaliating for sanctions basically stopped them from being able to sell oil in global economy there is a response coming from saudi arabia and united states we can't expect a response from -- it is the cycle eveof retaliation all-out inferno not just iran but across the middle east not outcome receivers admittedly american people or taxpayers what we really need to do, in order to prevent iran from continuing to move forward and developing, a nuclear weapon, and make sure that we are that we can avoid this inferno realize this current strategy isn't working to do what i have been saying all along reenter that iran nuclear deal end sanctions, and then take a parallel path, to be able to, would out other differences that we have with iran.
8:56 am
maria: radio you wanting to back into iran deal? >> do you think it with a mistakes for president to take u.s. out of it. >> i do i think a big mistake because once again if we stay focused on what our objectives should booeb safety security of american people we've got to realize every day that iran is not in that nuclear deal, the deal that trump walked away from one closer to seeing iran develop a nuclear weapon. >> they were going to do it any right deadline, 10 years, 15 years. >> this is when a i am saying where we are right now staying in nuclear agreement, it put that date off farther into the future allowing us time to be able to further work in parallel with it whereas where we are now, iran is not complying with nuclear deal because we walked away from it expressed newers types would like about to reenter the nuclear detail would open the door for inspectors so forth to get back in to make sure
8:57 am
their complying so long as not doing that, we are getting closer closer to iran having a nuclear weapon. >> we leave it there really good to have you this morning congressman tulsi gabbard. we'll be right back. . a money market fund when you open a new account. just another reminder of the value you'll find at fidelity. open an account today. of the value you'll find at fidelity.
