so, they went in and ripped off the world. so i told that to president xi. i said this can't be like a 50/50 deal. >> reporter: the heads of the trade teams are expected to meet later on today and again on friday. the last time they met face-to-face like this, some 10 weeks ago. we will be watching to see if u.s. trade representative is smiling or not, also if 13 is a lucky number. important to remember that on october 15th the tariffs go up to 35% on $250 billion worth of chinese imports. lauren: the trump administration may be ready to lift some restrictions on u.s. sales to huawei. the new york times reporting that president trump will allow some u.s. firms to sell nonsensitive products to huawei. the move is seen as a goodwill gesture after washington black listed huawei earlier this year. cheryl: as the unrest in hong
kong continues, china criticized for an app that can be used -- criticized apple for an app that can be used to track the movements of hong kong police. apple has pulled the app from the app store, they maintain it's not because of pressure but because it was used to ambush police and also because of safety concerns. it was used to take advantage of residents who didn't have law enforcement nearby. lauren: let's give you apple's statement on this issue. they say this. we created the app store to be a safe and trusted place to discover apps. we have learned that an app, hk map live has been used in ways that endanger law enforcement and residents in hong kong. many concerned customers in hong kong contacted us about this app and we began investigating it. the app displays police locations and we have verified with the hong kong cyber security and technology crime bureau that the app has been used to target and ambush police, threaten public safety
and criminals have used it to victimize residents in areas where they know there is no law enforcement. they app violates our glaxosmithklineshrines --guidele have removed it. cheryl: growing pressure on the nba following a tweet by the houston rockets general manager. the letter says in part, quote, it is outrageous that the chinese communist party is using economic power to suppress the speech of americans in the united states. president trump addressed the issue for the first time last night. >> they have to work out their own situation. the nba -- they know what they're doing. but i watch the way, like, kerr and popovich and some of the others were pandering to china and yet to our own country it's like they don't respect it. it's like they don't respect it. i said what a difference. isn't it sad.
it's very sad. to me, it's very sad. lauren: well, there is a wizards game in washington yesterday and the security guards were confiscating the signs you're looking at, free hong kong signs. it was an exhibition game against a team from china. >> we understand and respect your freedom of speech. we don't have a stance on it. we don't want any signs related to that tonight. lauren: the nba commissioner says today's game between the brooklyn nets and la lakers in china is expected to go on. it's an exhibition game. some players and former players are starting to speak out. dennis rodman says he wants to be the league's ambassador to china as the fal fallout contin. cheryl: an inspectioned ordered by the faa found some 737s have cracked wings on them, representing 5% of the planes

and yellow haired muppet. the episode will only be online and that's what's happening now. lauren: keeping up with the times. tracee, thank you. cheryl: all right, folks, it was a wild ride in the futures market overnight. we're going to have more on that coming up. it's calm now. we'll tell you what happened in a moment. right now, the dow is down 27, s&p down 2 and a quarter, nasdaq down 4 and-a-half. the overnight mess as the next round of trade talks kick off today in washington. president trump may have offered an olive branch to china. we're going to explain that. and bacon, you can find it in all kinds of foods, burgers, you can put bacon in anything, folks. anyway, how about bacon could be tougher to find coming up soon. right ahead of breakfast i'm telling you this. we'll explain that. as we head to break, the average price for gas today is $2.65,

calling out the china delegation early, staying late, all that is factoring into some of the most volatile trade we've seen. you wouldn't know it now, looking at dow jones futures, just down slightly. the market is on pins and needles about what this trade talk manifests, if. cheryl: where do you think the chinese are right now from a policy perspective. >> the bottom line is that americans, the chinese and global economy would benefit from ending the trade war, because these are really harming consumers, harming exporters. i think everybody's looking for a way to kind of -- kind of an off-ramp from some of these problems. the global economy is suffering, not doing as well as it could be. cheryl: let's talk about the specifics. bloomburg reporting there was a partial deal, possibly a currency agreement. that has nothing to do with
intellectual property and the fact that flows into chinese investments could be halted. there's been different stories coming from the white house on that. china is a market that a lot of americans do have stakes in, they may not realize that. what do you make of side of the story. >> some of what has been rumored by the administration is either with drawing government pensions from chinese stocks or at the far extreme, even delisting chinese companies from u.s. exchanges. there's been back and forth and at the end of the day it makes it difficult for investors, doesn't matter if you have $1,000 in a 401-k, or $1 million, is difficult to plan. you've seep seen a slowdown ing and investment because of this trade uncertainty. cheryl: you would be surprised -- you wouldn't be, but our viewers may be surprised how many chinese companies trade on the nasdaq. there's two stories, the blacklisting on these firms by the u.s. government, which
happened on monday, also you have this nba controversy that's happening rights now. now we're talking about human rights in china. again, this tells me that the chinese are going to have their backs up. is that a fair assessment? >> well, they may. again, but, chinese and american consumers and exporters are hurting. if you look at for example dairy product exports in the united states, they've fall n by 50%. soybean experts are going to be one-third of what they were last year. what you're seeing is maybe leaders feeling some pressure to stop the pain that is happening in the economy and hopefully what will happen is that there will be some resolution but hopefully not managed trade. government needs to get out of the way of people finding mutually beneficial trades here. that's what's happening in a global economy where there is liberal rules. we have serious concerns about ip and tech transfers.
cheryl: cpi is coming out this morning for september. you're expecting a little bit of pressure, right? >> surprisingly, the ppi missed, it was lower than expected. the cpi is expected just 0.1%, very low, cheryl, no signs of inflation. keep an eye on it. gold is near a six-year high we've a recent pull back, a lot of people wondering if and when inflation will rear its ugly head. cheryl: guys, thank you so much for getting up this morning. lauren: bringing home the bacon, literally, might get harder. smithfield foods said the u.s. could face a bacon and a ham shortage next year. china's pork production is expected to be down more than 30 million tons by 2020. well, still ahead, knocking down dominoes, how big and small businesses may be on the hook for millions of dollars legally because their websites aren't accessible to everyone. and they're cute, we know you want to keep fluffy or fido with

lauren: the americans with disabilities act turns 30 next year. it doesn't appear to be aging well. the law spurring a new wave of digital era lawsuits. earlier this week the supreme court allowed a blind man to sue dominoes pizza because the website is not accessible to him. ada lawsuits in the first half
of 2012019rose 20%. we bring in an attorney who specializes in all of this. my biggest question for you, is it fair to sue companies because apps and websites aren't friendly to those with disabilities. >> i think it depends on your perspective. people with disabilities, the blind, the deaf, they need access to websites. lauren: yeah, sure. the economy, if you will. >> exactly. it's very important. on the other hand, up until recently it was really not obvious to businesses what they were supposed to do with their websites. because there are no regulations that tell you what is an accessible website. lauren: the ada was written in 1990. why wasn't it updated in these 30 years? >> it's a difficult law to update. there was an update to kind of amend the definition of disability but, you know, the disability rights community really resists change. so the courts are trying to take a law that's never spoken to
the issue of digital accessibility and applying it to kind of today's technology and that's really -- it's an evolving thing and that's why businesses are caught unaware. lauren: why does this concern you so much? >> well, obviously our practice is all about this law, this is what we specialize in. i mean, it's -- from kind of our perspective, it's just not fair that there are not any rules specifically about digital access so that businesses know what they can do. lauren: if you're come dominoeu have more money at play where you can invest to retrofit your site, but if you're a small business, what do you do? do you spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to retrofit or do you settle for $5,000, $15,000, whatever it is. >> that's what people are doing. basically you had like a winery in new york that was sued and taken advantage of. this issue affects everybody.
what we should have had was an orderly transition, regulation, a period for everyone to comply, different rules for small businesses versus big businesses. we didn't have any of that. so the recent case that basically l dominoes asked the supreme court to review this ninth circuit decision, that would kind of in some ways -- it was business' last hope of. congress hasn't done anything, justice department isn't doing anything. they were hoping the supreme court would step in and say enough, these lawsuits shouldn't happen. lauren: in 10 seconds, what is your message to businesses out there? >> well, i think at this point these lawsuits are going to continue. there are more than 2200 of them. they need to start working on their websites. lauren: so spend the money to make sure your website is ada friendly. >> exactly. lauren: thank you for joining us. cheryl: california stepping up the war on plastics. hotels in the state will have to stop giving guests small plastic

cheryl: president trump is heading to ilhan omar's home state of minnesota tonight, trying to flip the state red for the 2020 election. he will have his work set out for him. a new fox news poll shows 51% of voters think the president should be impeached and removed from office. former vice president goa came n
came out strong and saying for the first time president trump should be ousted. >> donald trump has violated the oath of office, betrayed the nation. to preserve the constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached. cheryl: is this the new biden strategy. the latest poll shows he lost his lead to elizabeth warren by 3 points. let's bring in brad polumbo your reaction to the new poll which shows a lot of pressure on president trump. >> i think it's not too surprising, given the intense focus you've seen on impeachment from the democrats and the fact they moved forward with a full impeachment inquiry in the house to see this coming up as a major question, the 202 2020 democrate having to take hard stances on. you have joe biden coming out in favor of impeachment. of course, yes, joe biden
probably wants to toss trump out of office. he's calculating about where he thinks the voters are at. he thinks in light of his campaign, which has frankly been flailing, like you said, he's falling in the polls, he has had gaffe over gaffe, he thinks this will help him win over primary voters. cheryl: looking at did base in the fox news poll, he's losing the electorate that the president seems to cater to and the job performance numbers down by a couple of points. back to joe biden for a second. i'm wondering if this is going to be the strategy that we from him moving forward, not just because he's fighting against elizabeth warren, but it seems that the impeachment inquiry has given him fire to go after mr. trump and in the debate next week seems like they will go after president trump instead of each other. >> i think joe biden definitely will. he started his campaign, painting himself as a foil to president trump, talking about
president trump's charlottesville comments. joe biden wanted to make it a matchup between him and trump at the beginning. doubling down on impeachment is another opportunity to do that, another opportunity to kind of take a attention away from his policy differences from other democrats. cheryl: what do you make about bernie sanders coming out yesterday, after the heart attacks and the stents put into his heart, that he came out and said he misspoke about slowing down on the campaign trail. don't you think he should slow down, for his health. >> i think he should do more than he slow down. i think it's so tragic and it's not political that i say this, but i think bernie sanders should consider suspending his campaign. i don't know that we can elevate someone who is almost 80 years ago, who had a heart attack, to the most stressful position in the world. i feel very bad for senator sanders and his family but i think he should consider whether this is what's best for the country. cheryl: president trump's going to be heading to minnesota
tonight, he's in this war of words -- war of tweet was the mayor there over who is going to cover the cost of security at the rally. what kind of reception do you think president trump is going to get tonight there in. >> i think he's have a polarized reception. you have people that love him there and people that hate him. i think whatever is going to happen tonight, he has an inciting time coming up. cheryl: these rallies are a sweet spot but it's definitely in a controversial district. brad, thank you for being here this morning. lauren: we know pay cuts are bad for your wallet. there's a new study that says they could literally be bad for your brain as well. researchers say that losing income when you're younger can result in worse cognitive function and he decrease in brain integrity later on in life. a big concern moving forward is that as more and more people work in gig economy jobs, they could be more likely to face dramatic changes to pay. and let's take a look at the action on wall street this morning. modest losses right now as we take a look at all three major
averages right here in the u.s. dow is down about two-tenths of 1%, the same percentage declines across the board. stocks were whipsawed overnight on conflicting headlines on the too tusstatus of u.s.-china trae talks. still ahead, could the golden years be just the beginning, how older americans are making the most out of their later years. and one town wants oklahoma and -- that town is in oklahoma, they want you to know the state is more than okay. get it? how you could get paid to make a move to the sooner state. keep it here on "fbn: a.m." ♪ you must have confused me, confused me with someone else. ♪ off must have confused me, confused me with someone else. ♪ there ain't no excuses i can. what? that our new house is haunted by casper the friendly ghost? hey jill! hey kurt! movies? i'll get snacks! no, i can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars

you have to explain yourself. >> it's a surprise. most of the reports have -- that have been out to date focus on affordability and pretty much nothing else. we talk to over a million senior caregivers a year. there are other important things that seniors are focused on. lauren: like what? >> we decided to do a report that looks at 70 metrics, that we broke it into six categories. like healthcare. seniors spend a lot of time with doctors. it's important there are lots of doctors in the area and it's important that the quality of doctors is really strong. obviously, the housing law makes a big difference to them. cities tend to rise up when you start considering that there's lots of subsidized housing, san francisco has a lot of that. transportation is important. a lot of seniors have given up their cars and licenses. private transportation is sometimes too expensive for them so public transportation matters a lot. you see cities rise up and a lot of people look at places like
port richie, florida. when you having like transportation and healthcare, they tend to drop down. lauren: i hear you in that respect. i was surprised that i didn't see more texas cities, more tennessee and florida cities on the list of best cities. most financial sa add vieders wl tell -- advisors will tell you need $1 million to live out your golden years comfortable. some are saying we are living longer, we need more. in san francisco, we're looking at this list, washington, d.c., boston, brooklyn, new york, a million bucks is going to last you 10, 15 years, that's it. come on. >> these are personal decisions. when we looked at these six categories, what's important is that the senior caregiver that is helping their aged loved one make the decisions, they need to incorporate different weightings. the averages we applied is for
the millions we talked to. quality of life is one thing. this is a category i would weight very heavily. that's why i live in new york which if i were to look at studies as to where a person like me should live, new york is not going to be very high, given the tax rate, given the government of living. but -- given the cost of living. but access to libraries, museums, when you start to weight those heavier the cities become more attractive. lauren: is it true in the next 15 years, there's going to be more older americans than anyone else. >> yes. we're almost there. we're 10 years away from 65 and over being 20% of the population. and a lot of that is driven by the baby boomers. the baby boomers are moving up and we've really seen them change industry as they've grown up and the next one for them to have a huge impact on is senior care and senior living. lauren: thanks for pointing that out. we seem to do the millennial side of things but there's a lot
of older americans out there, the graying of america and they are living long. jim, thanks for the time. >> great to be here, thanks. lauren: and enjoy new york. >> thank you, you too. cheryl: one city in oklahoma is doing something unusual to get folks to move there. they're offering cold, hard cash. lauren: tracee carrasco with the details. tracee: tulsa wants to pay you $10,000 to live there. it's part of a program designed to increase the city's workforce, the city is looking for people who can work remotely from anywhere and are willing to relocate to tulsa. 10,000 people have already applied and 100 have been selected. uber is now letting your pets join the ride. the company is letting passengers bring along a furry friend to reduce cancellations. pets are one of the drivers' biggest complaints. the new program will be available in select cities starting october 16th. and arrest by' -- arby's is hammering home the fact that it

to see where there is no police presence so they're able to go in and vandalize or do things that may or may not be above board. that's why they asked apple -- that's why the government asked apple to take it down. a lot of people are criticizing apple for this move. it's a sticky subject. lauren: apple's statement was pretty clear. >> they made it clear it was an issue of -- we want to allow people to protest and, listen, apple has been very upfront about the fact that ultimately people want to be free. everybody wants to live in a free society. china is not a free society. i think we often forget they are a communist government. that is very repres repressive. if we were watching fox business in china right now you would see a black screen because we're talking against them. lauren: we also want to live in a safe society which begs the question how do we protect ourselves online when a lot of americans don't know the terms that you need to know in order to protect yourself. >> this is a troubling study

like citibank's t site. they've gotten very good about it. you have to be extra careful when you're online. lauren: thank you for the tips. cheryl: apa pell may be getting close to launching an augmented reality headset. an analyst says the headset is likely to launch in the second quarter of 2020. he previously expected the headset to launch the later part of next year. no mention on the price. it's been rumored for several years. headsets, augmented reality, we report, you decide if you want that one. lauren: ios 13 is out now and apple is taking on a problem we all know too well, robocalls. the latest iphone update includes a new control that sends spam calls directly to voice mail. the feature is called silence unknown callers. and it also prevents your phone from ringing if the caller is not in your contact list. cheryl: we have got a lot more coming up, folks. if you're having trouble making friends, you're not alone.
