tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  March 13, 2019 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT

1:00 pm
see that dip that happened there at the end of the session? that was the boeing announcement. largely recovered. to get it sort out, we go to "your world" with neil cavuto. let's do that right now. >> neil: we're on that, we're on howard schultz joining us in a few minutes from now and we're on this. looking live at the federal courthouse in los angeles. that's where lori loughlin is set to appear in an hour from now. she was taken in custody earlier today in connection with the massive college bribery scheme. welcome. i'm neil cavuto. first to jeff paul in los angeles where all of this will be going down momentarily. hi, jeff. >> hi, neil. lori loughlin will appear in the next hour. you can see all the cameras and media outlets out here waiting to see if she will make an appearance. she reportedly was in canada
1:01 pm
when news of this case broke. her husband was arrested yesterday. he's already posted a $1 million bail, this couple is accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get both of their daughters into usc. in fact, loughlin's husband on "full house" was criticizing her preschool school application. >> i have to be honest, well, he may have, embellished, lied a bit on our application. >> she's doing the honesty kick all week. >> we had a feeling you might have embellished. not many 2-year-olds are proficient on the bassoon. >> shepard: investigators say some students were placed in
1:02 pm
schools like yale, georgetown, ucla, stanford, the university of texas. some 50 people and test administrators and some coaches are accused of being involved in this. some of the coaches at the schools, neil, have been suspended and in some cases they've already been fired, neil. >> neil: thanks, jeff. more on this story as we get it. now that the 2020 presidential race is on the way, signs that joe biden may be entering the race. peter doocy on capitol hill with more. what's the story, peter? >> neil, we talked a little while ago to one of the democratic lawmakers that concluded after a call with joe biden that the former vice president is almost certain to run. senator chris coons that said he doesn't think the democratic party had gone to far to the left for biden to be excluded. >> frankly confident that he will be a very compelling
1:03 pm
candidate. not because he's in this lane or that lane but because he has more experience in the senate as a legislator, in the white house as vice president as part of the obama-biden team than any other candidate and his heart, his experience connects with the average american. >> coons says he thinks there's a little bit of praying and joe and dr. jill for the final decision. biden was more sure of himself on stage yesterday than two weeks ago when he said he wasn't sure there was an appetite for a biden candidacy and he has more to learn about a social media role. he was surrounded i be yellow and black signs that said "run joe run." he didn't lay many of them off. >> neil: thanks. to my next guest who probably isn't going one way or the other whether joe runs or not. the former starbucks ceo howard schultz who is giving an independent run for the presidency. he was speaking in miami-dade
1:04 pm
college in florida today. good to have you. >> great to be with you, neil. how are you? >> neil: i'm fine. would it make a difference to you if joe biden enters the race? you're moderate, he's kind of moderate. more in your lane. what do you think? >> i know vice president joe biden well. i have a lot of respect for him. i think it would be great if he run. the question is whether the far left leaning platform of the democratic party provide any room for vice president biden given the socialistic views that are being talked about. >> neil: so you think he would have a tough time getting the nomination. that's why you're not running to get the nomination. you're running as an independent. >> no, i'm not running as a democrat not because of the democratic platform, although i don't agree with it, i'm thinking of running as a
1:05 pm
centrist because the system is broke. how much evidence do we need with a $22 trillion debt, immigration program that we can't get fixed, healthcare crisis and education crisis? how much do we need to see in terms of the revenge politics every single day that is emblematic of both parties at the extremes not willing to work together. if a democrat should win the white house in 2020, take me out of the equation, is there any evidence that mitch mcconnell and the republican party is going to work with a democratic president? there's none. so what i'm talking about is a centrist position. a centrist position is common sense solutions to finally fix all of these problems that have been with us. not only during president trump's two-year history, but way before that. >> neil: what makes you that either party, either branch would work with you? >> sure. well, first off, if we embrace
1:06 pm
the status quo, we'll have continued decline. i believe the vast majority of americans that are sitting at the center can send a powerful signal to the american congress and senate and all the elected officials that an end person can finally be in the oval office and restore honor and dignity and morality back and whose message to the american people is i'm going to bring both parties together and has a track record of building a global business that has given free education, health care and ownership to every employee. i think there's a history here of leadership, of character and doing things that have not been done before. the issue in front of us is the american people are exhausted and fed up with revenge politics. there's millions of lifetime republicans that don't want to send donald trump back to the
1:07 pm
white house in 2020, but if they have a choice between donald trump and bernie sanders or elizabeth warren and kamala harris, they're going to re-elect donald trump. if they have another choice with 42% of the american people who affiliate themselves as an independent, they just might elect an independent person -- >> neil: they might. the history is, you know, not too encouraging. michael bloomberg looked at an independent run some time back. crunched the numbers and looked at the possibility of picking up a good percentage of the vote. you don't pick up the electoral votes. ross perot proved that. a lot of democrats are angry saying you're going to spoil a win for the democrats, even some of your fans that love your coffee at starbucks are saying that they would protest and not go to starbucks if you were to run.
1:08 pm
what do you think of that? >> first of all, that is a false narrative about the me taking and syphoning votes from the democrats. let's not go back to 1992 with ross perot or even 2015 with mayor bloomberg. this is a different time. the country has never been this divided. the american people have never been this dissatisfied with the political leaders of the country and have lost trust in our government. so we can't go back in history. we have to -- >> neil: there's -- also, the electoral votes. you have to get 270 electoral votes. you have a great deal of popularity garnering a lot of votes and with your money, you could pay important a lot of ads and attention. but getting the electoral votes is a big climb. >> let's talk about the theory of the case. i think there's a pathway to 270. let's specifically say this. over the last 30 plus years, only 8 to 10 states basically decided the presidential
1:09 pm
election. those are the battle ground states. let's take the state of texas where i was last week. republicans have owned that state since 1976. if donald trump loses texas, he can't get to 270 and chances are he does not get re-elected. if howard schultz decides to run for president and i enter the race, a good chance that texas for the first time since 76 does not go republican. >> neil: but you would hope that the democrat doesn't get to 270. if none of you do, if you're running and three entrants and a number of you, it goes to the house and you're not going to get that vote. >> yeah. but wait a minute. nobody knows what will happen. we're 18 months away. what i do know, what i do know is that the majority of americans, the vast majority of americans want to see common sense solutions to significant problems that both parties will not solve. what i also know is that this
1:10 pm
president needs to be removed from office because of his character, lack of civility, lack of respect -- >> neil: do you support impeachments? some democrats have pursued that and some siding with nancy pelosi saying impeach him. do you want to see that? >> i'm not here to talk about impeachme impeachment. last week in texas, i spent a fair amount of time throughout the state talking to veterans and families and visit the intrepid hospital and talked about the v.a. let's me tell you something about the v.a. they have a $200 billion budget. you talk about the moral responsibility of the commander-in-chief to send men and women in harm's way. the moral responsibility of the commander-in-chief is to take care of them when they come home. this president for all of his press conferences and all the things he says about the military, he -- let him go through the burn unit like i did and ask himself what is he doing for the veterans? we talk about medicare for all,
1:11 pm
free college, all of these other things that the far left socialists and the democrats are talking about. that's nonsense. look at the v.a. as a proxy -- >> neil: fair enough. but you mentioned what is happening on the left and this idea that, you know, the government should have a more active role in all of these enterprises. they also talk pretty much, all the leading candidates, have higher taxes on the wealthy, asset taxes. as a billionaire, how do you feel about that? >> i do feel that president trump made a significant mistake when he gave the corporations from 35 to 21% without entering a strategic understanding that the country needed comprehensive tax reform -- >> neil: but does that tax reform include higher guys like you? should it? >> yes. i think the wealthy should be --
1:12 pm
>> neil: how much higher? should there be a separate level for very rich people? >> in the next few months, i'm going to lay out a significant very specific economic agenda like i talked about today in terms of what it means to govern as a centrist. the question for all of us is, we've lost trust in our government. we lost trust in our leaders. the reason people are balking at paying hirer taxes is we have no trust the money will be spent well. so what we need, get the lobbyists out of the way, get the self-dealing out of the way and make sure hour tax dollars are being spent properly. don't forget, we're sitting with a $22 trillion debt. this president has added a trillion dollars a year. for all of the republicans out there that watch fox news, let me just ask the question, where are the republican leaders that banged on obama for eight consecutive years with regard to fiscal discipline, reducing the
1:13 pm
debt and the deficit and not one word the last two years? the country -- >> neil: you're right. both parties have abandoned that. you said you would reject partisan bills with the president. that's what we're used to lately in the last two administrations. how would you reject that if you got a bill that you liked? >> i would reject it. i think that what we need is a forcing function to enable both parties to understand that the president of the united states wants bipartisan cooperation, which is consistent with the values and preserving our democracy. that is what i would want as president. if you're a leader in any organization, any organization, you have to bring people together. what we right now have in america is red states versus blue and -- >> neil: you're right about that. but the market is a strong market. as a good business guy, do you give this president credit for it or the last president? >> i don't give this president credit for much, no. >> neil: i'll put you as a maybe
1:14 pm
on donald trump. your view -- >> no maybe. >> neil: i'm kidding. you're definitely running. sounds like you're going to do this. >> in the next few months, i'll make a final decision. i love america. i'm profoundly concerned for where we are. i know we can fix things. we cannot fix things with both parties constantly and consistently involved in revenge politics every day. the next president of the united states needs to bring the country together and bring our government together in a bipartisan way and rebuild trust and confidence in what america stands for at home and around the world. >> howard schultz, interesting to watch. let us know when it's definite. the former starbucks ceo. thanks, howard. >> thanks, neil. >> neil: all right. yesterday you heard democrat al green telling me no matter what nancy pelosi says, impeachment is worth it. how will the leadership going to

>> neil: all right. i wonder what steny hoyer thinks of what howard schultz just said? especially the impeach meant against the president and so forth. steny, always good to have you. what do you think is howard schultz were to run as an independent? >> i think if howard schultz ran as an independent, it would hurt democrats. for the most part, he's supportive of democratic issues. if we split our vote, the chances of trump winning are better assuming he's the republican candidate. i don't think that's a result that schultz wants. so i've said publicly that i would hope he not runs, or if he runs, he runs as a democrat. he is a democrat. i think he supports democratic
1:19 pm
policies. if he runs as an independent, he's going to undermine what he believes in and his objective. >> neil: i had al green here yesterday. he's among a rabid group of democratic congressmen and women want to impeach the president. what did you think of that? >> nancy is right. it would be a huge distraction without the probability of success. water going to have an election in 18 months. the american people elected somebody who i think ought not to be president of the united states. they elected him. lots will happen in the next few months, the mueller report, actions by the southern district of new york, house and senate hearings. house hearings in particular, oversight. we'll see what develops there. speaker pelosi is right. we have an agenda.
1:20 pm
we said to the american people, if you elect us, we'll focus on health care, prescription drug costs, jobs, infrastructure. >> neil: you're worried the party -- was the purpose of those remarks that this endangers the democrat's chances in 2020? >> i don't think it endangers because i think we're going to win in 2020. but having said that, it does take our eye off the ball. an improvement process is an extraordinarily all-consuming process of the public's attention and the congress' attention. we promised healthcare, climate change, reform issues. >> neil: i understand that. does that include, congressman, if -- there's lots of hearings, nothing bordering on impeachment. isn't that just as distractive?
1:21 pm
>> we promised the american people that we would conduct oversight. that's the possibility of the congress of the united states. so i don't think it's a distraction. that's our duty. that doesn't mean we can do legislation at the same time. i don't think impeachment follows into those categories. it's an overalling -- a overreaching effort. speaker pelosi and i think we want to see president trump of the united states because we disagree with him and we think he's doing things not prudent for the country. we have a responsibility to do things that we think are good for the country and we want to be about that. >> neil: understand. crunched for time. we want to talk in the near future and the budget and everything else. always a pleasure. steny hoyer. >> neil: thank you. the president is already making it clear, boeing 737 max 8s and

1:26 pm
delays. all of this spear headed in the last couple hours when we heard from the president of the united states on this matter. john roberts on that at the white house. hi, john. >> neil, good afternoon to you. this happened after canada ordered the 737 max 8s to be grounded based on what the transportation minister said, the development of new satellite information. president trump this afternoon in the roosevelt room issuing an order to ground all 737 max 8 and 9s after the faa found the same satellite information and more. in this emergency order, he said the investigation of the ethiopia air crash developed new information from the wreckage considering the aircraft's configuration just after take off taken with new satellite tracking, the aircraft's flight path indicates similarities between the ethiopian and the
1:27 pm
lion air accidents that warrant further investigation of the possibility of a shared cause for the two incidents. the first indication that we have, neil, that there may be a link, fact-based because it's been suspected. the first fact-based evidence between the link of this and the lion air flight that went down off of indonesia last year. here's what the president had to say. >> the united states has the greatest record in the world of aviation and we want to keep it that way. i didn't take any chances. we didn't have to make this decision today. i felt it was important psychologically and other ways. working with canada and other countries, we felt it was the right thing to do. >> the president said he spoke with several airlines before making the decision and spoke with boeing's ceo who yesterday had told the president in a phone call that the 737 max 8s
1:28 pm
and 9s were air worthy. but he said grounded them would be the right thing to do. boeing said we're supporting this proactive step out of an abundance of caution. safety is the core value of boeing. there's no greater priority for our company and our industry. we're doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators to deploy safe safety enhancements and ensure this won't happen again. boeing is looking to get to the root of this quickly and the planes will be back in the air soon. right now, people are scratching their heads as to what happened in ethiopia the other day and indonesia last year. so maybe some time before the planes get back in the air, neil. >> neil: thanks, john. so how are the stock prices affected. susan li with more.
1:29 pm
>> the u.s. airlines have most of the 737s. united operates 14 of the 737 900 maxes. so not a lot. shouldn't have a big financial impact. southwest says we're currently seeking confirmation and additional guidance from the faa and will respond accordingly in the interest of aviation safety. they say now that they have complied with the faa grounding as of immediately, american says that earlier today the faa informed us that based on new information they're grounding the united states boeing 737 max fleet out of an abundance of caution. american airlines operates 24 aircraft affected by this directive. our teams will be looking to rebook customers as quickly as possible as we apologize for any
1:30 pm
convenience. united said with spare aircraft and rebooking customers, we don't anticipate a significant operational impact as a result of this order. we will continue to work with our customers to help minimize any disruption to their travel. the question is how long will the ground stop last? the faa administrator just in the past hour says he doesn't know how long this grounding will last or he says he hopes it will be as short as possible. the u.s. being the last major country to join the whole list of countries banning the plane from usage and from airspace. in total, over 40 countries and boeing might have to pay us compensation to those global airline force their lost business. the loss of flights. norwegian, one of the largest orders of these 737 maxes in europe might be losing as much as $46,000 each day for each of these 737 max aircraft before
1:31 pm
likely seeking competition from boeing. neil, that's why you're looking at boeing shares taking $26 billion hit and the worst two-day drop in the stock in close to three years. >> neil: incredible. it was doing so well a little more than a couple weeks ago. thanks, susan. meantime, from england, no deal for brexit. when is this ever going to be resolved? after this. o

school, do they have a case to make of their own? we have mercedes here with us. what do you think? first, what loughlin is arranging. >> she's one of the bigger fish. we're talking about a $500,000 bribe that she gave to singer and used the money -- >> neil: the so-called admissions consultant. >> exactly. that's problematic for her. that $500,000 is up to four years in prison when you look at the sentencing guidelines. could be that she and her husband -- it's a million dollars. there's some people charged with murder that don't get that type of bail. so obviously they're concerned that he might be a flight risk and two, that the crime is so significant that the bail should be that great. >> neil: so some of these kids that never made it to these schools and they're just hearing about this and say i did it the old fashioned way and bumped by people that rigged the system,
1:43 pm
can i sue? >> it depends on the university. should they have known this was taking place, should they have done due diligence? who are the individuals that were involved in this criminal enterprise? if you have an athletic kid going to usc, loughlin and her husband paid $500,000 to get on the rowing team. they never rowed in their load. >> neil: shouldn't the rowing team coach be aware of that? >> it's astounding they wouldn't be. >> neil: if it was a soccer coach that pled guilty, another athletic director at another school, but obviously this would involve far more people and people that are add these said schools. >> this is the tip of the iceberg. we know william singer was wired as of september. so he's having multiple discussions, talking to individuals. some of it is even in e-mail. he's being charged with
1:44 pm
obstruction of justice. so what he's alleged to have done, he did this plea deal early on. he was wired. he tried to tip off families from implicating themselves. he's so significant. that's why he was charged. >> neil: so this could spread way beyond the cases that we know of now. the universities and colleges that haven't been touched, doesn't mean they can't be down the road. >> right. it's just the beginning. you're seeing the arrests and now i'm sure some individuals, loughlin and felicity huffman and her husband. they're going to try to strike a deal. >> neil: you think the kids now? >> it would be hard to say that some of these kids -- they're probably changing their sat and act scores didn't know. i'm sure they were surprised like wow, look at the score i got. i never scored like that before. >> neil: thank you very much. we're going to follow you and keep making sense of this, mercedes. >> always a pleasure, neil. >> neil: one of my favorite people here and another one of

"freddy the broad coast", she's moved beyond that. it's a reflection on her life. i know her, we worked together. i don't have time for details. but i'm happy. >> you have a lot of notes. i'm honored. >> i corrected a lot of it. i didn't. i knew that a lot of stuff -- coming here and everything else, the m.s. stuff, we're kindered spirits there. what i will note, you don't let it stop you. one incident after the other. you don't let it stop you. but i told you to act like a victim sometimes. i told you to use it and haven't. >> yeah. >> get out of chores.
1:50 pm
>> neil: yeah, but you don't listen. >> i know this is about me but i wanted to pay tribute to you. you're a huge hero to me. you're a main character in that book. >> neil: that's why i like it, by the way. i recommend you read it for what she says about me. >> let me say this. this is a moment for me. i came to you at a very dark period in my life that i wrote about. i thought my career was going to be over, that my boyfriend was going to leave me, that my life was probably going to end up in a wheelchair. i remember that day like it was yesterday. i came to your office. you sat there with me and you listened to me and you said, you know what, kiddo? you're going to be just fine. >> neil: and you are. i didn't know you would take that advice. >> but listen, i know you're joking with me -- >> neil: but you wouldn't play the victim. >> but you were a huge inspiration to me. if i hadn't had you, i don't know if i would be sitting here. i don't know if i would have written that book.
1:51 pm
you gave me hope in a time when i needed it. >> neil: and you had it in here, too, i'd be remiss -- you had to deal with roger ailes dealing with this. he was good at helping you deal with it. you had problems with him. him was maybe more innocent harassment or worse. how would you -- >> i wanted to paint the relationship with him good and bad. he wasn't darth vader. he was a good man in many ways. he helped me greatly. i came over to fox when i was in a dark period of time. i hope that i give him justice because he did some very good things for people here. he was loyal. he was a good boss. there were things that were true about him as well that i had to write about. it's a testament to fox to tell me, you can write that story. >> neil: now, how -- he invited you in the back to a hotel, right? and it didn't go further than
1:52 pm
that. but obviously made you uncomfortable and there was never anything after that. when you made it clear in your book that that was not your interest. >> yeah. but you know, i dealt with harassment throughout my whole broadcasting career unfortunately. so the situations were him, i had dealt with it before. i laughed it off or i tried to avoid certain situations. >> and you were on the air when we got the news he died. you write in your book, i believe that he never knew roger's evil size. we'll defend him despite the overwhelming evidence. i'd be lying if i told you i didn't have mixed opinions or him. he was generous with me and kind during my m.s. you were a friend of megyn kelly and i. we still talk about the same wonderful things that roger did for us back in the day. he should go down at one of the most brilliant men in broadcast.
1:53 pm
>> it was important for me to write that. not everything is black and white. he was a complicated man, as many are. i don't think he falls into that category of the weinsteins or the other monsters we see in the media. >> neil: how did you compartmentalize, a reporter at the time. there was a guy trying to rape you. >> yeah. i write about that. i had a home invasion where the guy robbed me and decided to come and wake me up while i was sleeping. my gut instinct was to say hello to him and be very calm and try to convince him to take everything else and not harm me physically. >> neil: he heard something outside. a shooting or something. but for that -- >> i convinced him to take my money and my jewelry. i told him i had a brand new car. as we were out in the living room and i didn't know what to
1:54 pm
do, there was a sound in the parking lot -- >> neil: he already rifled through the parking lot. >> he had. i sad what if i had protection or a gun nearby, would that have helped me or helped other women that he did this to? >> neil: when you deal with this, as you had incidents when you worked with don imus but you had a life that we know about the m.s., we know about this. you've been pelted again and again and again. i'm just wondering, when you're out there with the crowds, you talk about -- i know you were -- you talk about steve martin. you love steve martin. you tried comedy yourself in new york and did very well. there's something in that that helps you deal with it. i wonder if humor is your way of dealing with the pain. >> maybe. maybe it's a coping mechanism. i'm really truly happy now.
1:55 pm
i have everything that i've ever wanted. i have a wonderful job. i have a husband that loves me. i have two beautiful children. >> they are beautiful. >> they're my sunshine. >> i went through a lot of therapy. i had a therapist for 15 years that i talk about. therapy is not talked about. >> neil: you're right. >> we need more of that. we're in a opioid crisis where people are numbing their feelings with drugs and alcohol. i did the hard work on myself. >> neil: but you had complications along the way and treatments. what is your message to people? they think of people on tv, seems like a wonderful life, that they feel no pain, nothing is going on. >> listen, i wanted this book when i was diagnosed with ms when i was going through tough times. you need to surround yourself with people that are going to help you in your journey. luckily people like you, people like judy -- >> neil: you've -- i wonder, it has to be hard sometimes. you know, how do you deal with
1:56 pm
that? i think when you say "mostsy sunny" that reads to me some days partly cloudy. >> of course. i wanted to call the book "partly cloudy" but i wanted to be optimistic. living a life of mostly sunny can help you get through the most challenging moments. any sunshine comes from my family, knowing that i have good doctors that take care of me, knowing that i have you down the hallway to talk to. >> neil: you said there's a lot of pressure in this industry. it's not fair to this day. it is tough for women. you felt the pressure. i'm wondering what your message is for women and post all the stuff that happened here and everywhere else. >> find other good women to help you. we have a female ceo of this company now.
1:57 pm
she's very supportive of me and all of the women that work here. i'm not afraid anymore. i'm not afraid of my work environment and i also hope that i can be a person that young women can come to to help them. >> neil: if your life right now, you talked about the fact that maybe you avoided some trouble but not being deemed a threat, which is interesting, if you were a full-time anchor, you know, popping in and out of so many shows. coast that make it easier on you? >> maybe. maybe. a lot of competition in this business. >> neil: and you could talk about it. it's more competitive. >> i like what i do. i love the friends i work with. to me, that's the best thing about this job. >> neil: one thing you talk about when you got on the meteorology degree and all that. i told you it was tougher to pick stocks than to guess the
1:58 pm
weather. you argued with me. i wonder why you did that. that hurt my feelings. >> how much time do we have? [laughter] i love you, neil cavuto. >> neil: let me get this. a lot of people don't know -- and from book -- i don't want to give away certain things. first of all, they're tear jerkers. i would cry if i read it. you wrote this book, you're still a young woman. so you're writing this book. is there a follow up? in other words, you're not done with it. >> no. i actually -- >> neil: this isn't your finish here. >> oh, there's another freddy the broadcaster. >> neil: you're milking that puppy beyond what is necessary. >> i hope that i have smooth sailing from here on in. >> neil: do you worry that right now in this world that everything that is going on that we just stumble from one personal crisis -- sometimes i think crises get to define people. >> sure. >> neil: your message is by the
1:59 pm
end of the become and where you're optimistic that i'm taking it day by day? >> that's it. that's the one thing that m.s. gave me, that life can end pretty quickly. every day i get out of bed and i put my feed on the ground and stand up. have a good day. >> neil: you ever get angry? you think god like cnn and taking it out on fox workers? >> you need therapy. >> neil: you're right about that. it's a great book. i read and i love all of my colleagues when they write books here. but this one is a tear-jerker and a great story and a great behind-the-scenes look at a woman -- i'm telling you, you don't know her but she's and outstanding human being. the only criticism i have of you, young lady, you're not using the disease as a crutch and making it tough for me. my wife says when i come home, the garbage -- >> you need to talk to my husband. i don't do a lot. >> neil: i find it hard to
2:00 pm
