8:33 am
should the president be negotiating with boeing about the price of an airplane? >> the president-elect. >> he is not even in office yet and do doing his thing. it depends how you view it as politics. you could say he is setting the stage for a president who is going to say i don't want to pay certain prices. but then again, you get to the constitutional issue of whether that is appropriate or not. >> for the president-elect? >> yes. >> but my question even the larger question i meant when he is president, don't we want the president doing other things and let other people negotiate the price of a plane? i the country because it looks like somebody is worried about spending, it looks like somebody is worried about jobs and all of those things. >> i got to share my gut reaction which was $4 billion that is a lot for one plane even if it is a great plane. >> the fact first. it is not $4 billion. let's be clear. >> it is not $4 billion. it's a service contract over many years and specifications created by the government itself. i think as a matter of rhetoric and communication you have to -- whether you agree with trump's politics or not he is doing a pretty good job of setting the
8:34 am
don't want to pay a lot of money and renegotiate with china and do everything i can to fight for jobs and a lot of issues the way he is doing it but he is setting the communication pretty clear. >> one issue might be tweeting as much as he does? >> why hasn't donald trump had a press conference? that has not happened. he is keeping control of the message and that is, again, it's -- >> what impact is it having on the stock market? >> hey, stock market never been better. >> i know. >> right? >> d >> what is the cause sayinaigs ? >> you believe growth is coming and regulation is being taken off the books, and, you know, buy stocks, sell bonds. the bond market -- >> the reserve -- >> right. if you believe growth is coming and that is another big question, then buy stocks. >> do you think this is the way to run a railroad through tweeting as opposed to having a press conference? what is your gut reaction to that? >> i'll give you my gut reaction. >> yeah. >> what is it? >> that we created a country of rule of law and not a rule of
8:35 am
and even if you do agree sort of emotionally with what trump is saying, via tweets or whatever he is doing. >> a lot of people apparently do. >> there should be a path by which not one person controls what happened in the country whether it relates to one company or any one issue and why we have a congress and why we have -- >> let's talk about your -- let's talk about reporting. >> sure. >> i'm pretty sure i read it this morning in your paep. i read five papers. it said in your paper that corporate america, though, is reacting to this pretty negatively what they did with boeing. why? >> i think that is the drainianf this if you believe what he is saying. if you're in the cross-hairs of the president and he can tweet and bring popular opinion against us, that is a dangerous place to be. the facts of the matter might be entirely different than what he is saying. and there should be methods and a process. it's not -- it's not -- easy or efficient but it is the way the u.s. is supposed to work which is that there is a rule of law. >> is the deal with carrier a shakedown? >> your paper called it so. >> editorial board.
8:36 am
>> i understand. >> the argument is is that editorial board's view was that there is no particular reason why any person or government should be telling business people what to do and those who have their money on the line and jobs on the line are the best allocators of capital. >> what about the president-elect's idea that if a company closes factories, therefore, causing job loss, moves overseas and makes products overseas, if they bring those products back in, they will be imposed a >> i proposed a 35% tariff on that. it becomes a question of free markets or not. declaration of independence, one of its grievances against king george was the right for free trade. >> what that is using the tax code as either punishment or in other cases as an incentive. >> i try to stay out of politic but what i would say, if congress -- >> too late, dennis. >> we are all being sucked in. if congress wants to enact that tariff law, then congress should
