francine: donald trump announces an appointment. be chief ofus will staff. bannon takes over as strategist. xi jinping says cooperation is the only option as he speaks with trump. that's that the new president will need to spend big to fulfill his make america great again promise. this is "bloomberg surveillance." iran francine lacqua in london.
4:01 am
we enter the first full trading week since donald trump's election. his white house team is beginning to take shape. key appointments -- republican national committee chairman reince preibus will be chief of staff, and stephen bannon, former executive at the right-wing website "breitbart news," takes over. the bond market wrap continues as investors position themselves for a trump presently. we analyze the new appointment and what it means for the policies of the world's largest economy with a great panel of guests. we are joined by president aidan partner at morris reid. chief investment officer garments and -- thank you all for being with us. first, let's get straight to the bloomberg first world news. here is nejra cehic. nejra: china's economy held ground last month, following new measures to cool property markets in almost two dozen big cities. industrial production rose 6.1% from a year earlier, just missing estimates.
4:02 am
retail sales climbed 10%, shy of a 10.7% estimate. japan's economy expanded more than forecast in the third quarter, with a rebound in exports compensating for weak spending by people and companies. gdp grew an annualized 2.2 percent, versus a median estimate of 0.8%. however, consumption grew just 0.1% and business spending was unchanged. japanese prime minister shinzo abe has a this morning that the transpacific partnership is in a difficult situation with the election of donald trump, and that he wants to discuss free trade. u.k. prime minister will give her first major speech on foreign policy since taking office in july. it will be her first analysis of donald trump's election victory last week. she will argue that changes in the air and that it is the job of politicians to respond to voters who are unhappy with shifts in society.
4:03 am
global list on a four hours a day, powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. i am there a change. -- i am nejra cehic. i want to showe: you the 30 year yield on the 30 year treasury market. this is a picture for the data check. it is quite far, but i think things are down. this is the picture for emerging markets, down from 0.8%. stocks in europe are gaining. five days from the u.s. election results, and we are starting to get an idea of how president-elect donald trump will govern and who he will work with to deliver to his pledges. let's clip -- let's kick off the show with michael mckee. what can we read from these early appointments? michael: it looks like donald trump is trying to thread the needle between what he needs to do and what he has pledged to do. reince priebus is a well-known washington insider, and the job he has as chief of staff is a
4:04 am
typical insider job. he is supposed to be the gatekeeper to the president, make sure the president gets the proper views from everyone within the administration, and gets capitol hill to negotiate to get the views put into law. steve bannon is a bomb thrower from the all right website -- alt-right website who came on board to steer donald trump into the presidency. not clear how those two will get along or how it will work. people in washington were dreading the idea of bannon as chief of staff area that he is not chief of staff, but according to trump, they will share power. nobody is sure how that is going to work. francine: what policies did he give to the "60 minutes" program? michael: a lot of things on the campaign trail, he seems to be walking back now. they are not going to be deporting 11 million aliens off the top. they are going to start with 2 million or 3 million who are convicted criminals.
4:05 am
the wall is going to take a little while to put together. maybe we don't build a complete wall, just sort of electronically. he suggested he is going to keep some of obamacare. that could be difficult to do, given the way the system is set up, he is not going to scrap the whole thing yet. basically, he is starting to sound like more of a washington than the radical candidate who promised to "drain the swamp" out on the campaign trail. francine: what is your take on his attitude toward protests? michael: that is interesting. he is starring to suggest -- he told "60 minutes" that he is going to be a more moderate, more presidential figure going forward. then he starts tweeting about "the new york times" and complaining about the protesters, saying they are paid professionals, and "the new york times" is using -- losing subscribers because of their lousy coverage of him. at the time of this report, they are actually gaining subscriptions. he says he is going to keep tweeting.
4:06 am
we are still waiting to see which donald trump we are going to get. great coverage. thanks you so much. his twitter account is pretty special. let's bring in the first of my guests this morning, the chief investment officer of c cla investment management. gentlemen, thank you both for joining us. james, how much do we know about what he is going to do in terms of spending? how much do we know about what he is going to manage, build, and how will the fund it? james: we know are markedly little detail. we clearly have a great sense of direction. he is a man who has survived largely on instinct as opposed to detailed planning. the direction of planning is obvious. he will be spending much more money on infrastructure. he will be attempting to kickstart the u.s. economy with fiscal policy and relies far less on monetary policy. will see the markets close on this through the bond yields. i think the steady upward
4:07 am
taken the bond market has been worrying. it may be that with republicans in control of the house and the senate, the actual restraining factor on the return of the bond market vigilante, which we have not seen in nearly a decade -- that they will be what determines the size of the spending program. francine: at the end of the day, this could mean that president trump may not be able to spend like he wants to, so he may not be able to stimulate the economy . guy: i think there will be restrained from the traditional will and i think pence represent that as vice president, the fiscally orthodox small government wing which is still powerful. i think that will be another restraining factor. it is interesting. it does seem to be the event that really tipped the bond market over. it will be heard around the world, i think. francine: are we jumping the gun too quickly? are we expecting too much? we are expecting inflation goes
4:08 am
up, that the fed will have to hike two or three times next year. o hikes next year. i do not worry about what is going on. i think this is a logical normalization. i think the two year yield in the second half of next year will be 2.5% to 3%. that allows me to feel optimistic about the prospect for the s&p 500, which i suspect next year will get to 2400 points. rather optimistic. francine: morris reid, partner at public strategy company. morris, you were on the clinton campaign. is that right? do we knowl, what about what a donald trump presidency will be? morris: we do not know. this is a man who has not spent much time in washington, d.c., is an outsider. i thought his selection for chief of staff and also his selection for the chief strategist was pretty interesting. he has got the best of both worlds. that is what you are going to get with donald trump you have a person like reince priebus, who
4:09 am
is perceived as an insider, but he is really not. he has only been in washington for a little bit of time, so he does not have a lot of washington experience. he is a stabilizing force to the republican establishment. the guy from breitbart is a complete outsider. that allows him to continue to have the outsider edge, the different opinion, to keep the trump mystique alive within the white house. francine: but a different opinion to what? to guide donald trump as to what the electorate is thinking, or to go more right wing? morris: what these guys were able to do is cap into the mood and the pulse of the country. i think having someone like him will allow him to stay connected to those outside the beltway. a lot of times, you get in the white house and you stay within a bubble. this guy strikes me as a person who is really antiestablishment, anti-washington, who is going to focus on making sure they stay connected with the constituency that got them in the white house. francine: you just have to take a bet on whether he will make
4:10 am
america better, right, or not? this will partly be on whether donald trump can unify the country, but also be a president and actually unite the country, and take care of the ones that have been left out. what do we know about that? will he be able to pull that off? at the equityok markets, that is what they seem to be telling you. the volatility the whole of the election cycle was only a whisker below what we saw in brexit, and substantially what we saw in the earlier -- substantially below what we saw in the earlier european crisis. this is sort of a balanced set of outcomes, is probably where we are heading. francine: the regulation does not help the common person --deregulation does not help the common person on the street. guy: it will it leads to higher growth, company startups, more jobs, improving wages, which are the issues trump stumped for in the campaign.
4:11 am
morris: the best way to fix this is jobs. this is the one thing he promised that she is going to come create jobs. the best way to -- francine: low-quality jobs. morris: we do not know. or was an idea that he would create the wrong type of jobs. the best way to unify the country is to deliver on his promises. frankly, the democrats do not want to be seen as obstructionist. they have to be able to play along like newt gingrich did when bill clinton was in the white house. they have to present ideas. you cannot just be the party throwing bombs. you have to be a participant in pushing things forward. francine: can you really reinflate the u.s. economy? the u.s. economy compared to the rest of the world has not been doing so badly. james: the u.s. economy is doing well, compared with many economies. i would say euro land is a big relative loser. but the big challenge, i would guess, is the case of globalization has been a challenge to the ordinary person the world over. it has been a challenge in terms of jobs, in terms of living
4:12 am
standards. this has been accentuated by new technologies as you take jobs away. this is going to be not one presidency to fix. it will take several. seven, guy, and morris reid. they all stay with us. stay with "surveillance." a $1.2 trillion bond rout continues. we analyze how donald trump's election is moving stocks and bonds around the world. plus, with many of europe's biggest economy holding key votes over the coming year, we break down what the new white house means for the region and its investors, and as president how donald trump will be. how will it play on the markets? we speak more with morris reid. ♪

4:17 am
as vice president, and i certainly believe mr. trump will get full political support, including from the democrats, to drive fast growth. i certainly think mrs. yellen in the open market committee at the federal reserve will hike in december. two hikes next year. remains: the fed independent? james: that would be my expectation, exactly. francine: guy, do you believe the fed will remain independent? and why haven't the markets for seen any of this? we will talk about the polls later on. weret seems the markets taken by surprise. there is a knee-jerk reaction, and then equities go up and there is a bond rout. begin -- rod right began before trump, with kuroda saying he wanted to cap the long end of the bond market. i think he builds on momentum that was already there to say that negative interest rate,
4:18 am
near zero bonds, and a flat yield curve are doing damage in the banking sector and across society generally. this really played into a lot of the skepticism trump had over janet yellen's policies. i think to an extent, the bond bears are pushing on an open door. i think we see more of site on the yields, i am afraid, before we see stability. francine: i have a terminal. i do not know if we can see it. we are seeing it gained a little bit. it is really quite significant. i will get it made an show it to you a little bit later. morris, you are expecting a little bit more of a -- on policies, we have the broad policies. but we are very thin on exactly the details of the policies. but you believe it has an effect on m&a? morris: i do. if you see where he is signaling, i think you will see domestic m&a. i am not sure about international m&a. i think he will be protectionist, but cautious allowing foreign companies to take over american companies, particularly chinese companies.
4:19 am
if you look at banking stocks, health-care stocks, some of the stocks affected by net neutrality, these are things he plans to deregulate. those stocks are going to boom. as you look at what he said on the campaign trail, and how you make a business case going forward, i think it will be an interesting time for the stock market. francine: but doesn't deregulation play to inequality? doris: i'm not sure that is what he wants to play with. he wants to get the economy moving. i think some of the things he said will jumpstart it. if he actually built a wall, it would be a catalyst for construction along the border, which would be an impetus to stimulate the economy. francine: how is he going to find that? morris: do not know that. the devil is in the details. but if you look at the record of what he said and tie it to the business case, the economy is going to, at least in the initial run, half a stimulus effect. francine: are you buying indices in the united states, or nondiscriminatory? james: i am definitely
4:20 am
stockpicking. i think this is an environment where one needs to be quite careful. positive to look for trends. i completely share the view that health care and some of the financials will do relatively well. infrastructure is going to benefit. so if we are thinking globally, wolseley's -- assets look well placed to benefit from profit -- from u.s. initiatives. francine: does that automatically mean european stocks will be harmed? james: not necessarily. first of all, the european banks -- at least equal moves to what we see in the u.s. banks. they are extraordinarily cheap. they love a rising yield curve. most of the regulatory problems have been in the u.s. a softer touch there will benefit them as well, so they will perform well. the dollar relatively strong against the euro, so exporters will do well. the risks will remain in the periphery. i think the italian referendum is going to haunt markets until december and possibly beyond.

donald trump's election and what it means for the rest of the world. the shock result could damage investor trust in opinion polls. that is the view of james bevan, with us today. he goes on to caution the euro another existential crisis, given the election cycle over the next 12 months. with guyak to james, withn and morris reid also us. we have gone from existential crisis to existential crisis. we had brexit. the polls may shift to something much more extreme when it comes to france choosing a new president, the italian referendum, and other countries. .ames: i completely agree i believe renzi will lose his referendum. there is a reasonable probability that marine le pen, on the back of the populist surge with brexit and mr. trump, will make significant gains in the french election. those are extraordinary challenges.
4:26 am
i therefore suspect the political elite will not be able to equal it on the challenges of the euro and we will have an existential crisis within the next 12 months. francine: we are looking at currency wars and protectionism? james: we have to worry about a retest of the role of the european central bank. we have to worry about how the political elite are going to involve the storyboard. moment, the clearing bank arrangements have germany lending 250 billion, italy borrowing a hundred 50 billion. this is not sustainable. francine: it certainly is not. james, morris, and guy stay with us. twitter as a form of communication, next. ♪ seeing is believing, and that's why

according to her office, she will argue that change is in the air and it is the job of politicians to respond to voters. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. francine: thank you so much. trumps campaign was marked by his combative approach to traditional media. that friction hasn't dissipated. yesterday, donald trump took to twitter to attack the new york times over a letter it had written to subscribers. while his relationship with the media has been tense, he's been a very active user of social media. in an interview on "60 minutes," trump talks about his followers and his views on the media. mr. trump: i think i picked up yesterday 100,000 people. i'm not saying i love it, but it does get the word out. it is a modern form of communication.

4:33 am
i don't believe it is having an impact on twitter stock, so it is an interesting phenomenon. francine: we know, james, and you are a older at a lot of these stocks. facebook, we understand, there was an internal chat about whether they help in some way putting donald trump in the white house because there was no filter. because you can say what you want on social media. does that change your world? james: social media has been hugely important for a number of years. arguably we would not have the arab spring had we not the capacity for people to communicate each other through the social framework. i certainly think facebook remains an excellent long-term investment. i don't view twitter as being in the same class from an investment perspective. the capacity to monetize is farthest advanced and capable than that of facebook.
4:34 am
francine: do you think we will ask questions on whether this news needs to be curated for accuracy? james: public opinion is what is driving what people want to do. people are angry. they have been ignored by the political elite. they don't know what is wrong but they know something is wrong. within the united kingdom, only those within london, the m 25, have been able to enjoy an increase in real living standards. the rest of britain has been left behind. i think what social media really does is give a voice to the voiceless. in the past you felt like you couldn't express yourself. that is what social media has done. you saw that with the arab spring. one thing that is different with facebook and twitter is, twitter is one-dimensional. ist social media has done
4:35 am
given the underdog a voice. francine: yes, or it gives campaigns a voice, which may not be 100% accurate. the question is whether they need to be held into account because of that. morris: i think that if you are going over the public airwaves like television, there is a different level of scrutiny than one requires in doing twitter. twitter is a one to one or one to many. you have to follow the person in order to do it. francine: is there a problem with the polls? come the italian referendum where the french election, you have to make a choice on whether you buy european stocks or currencies. do you trust the polls? guy: i trust the polls, but i don't trust the final betting levels or outcomes they may show. clinton and trump were close through the whole campaign. one of the reasons the markets reacted so coldly is that they were well hedged.
4:36 am
generally portfolios are structured for either outcome. in the brexit case, there was a think tilt, which i came from the spread bettors and the odds. in the italian referendum, we just assume probably that the populists are going to succeed, and that is how the polls are actually structured. francine: is there an assumption that mainstream media, sometimes called elitist media, doesn't get it? like we saw the new york times almost apologizing for not covering a section of the population. guy: i think the five-star movement, trump, are not really susceptible to the analysis that has normally been applied. i think normal media doesn't catch a lot of their trends. this has been quite expensive for fund managers. they've relied on some old techniques and the world has changed. morris: i think people are
4:37 am
thinking that these guys have done something different. focus groups give you the most accurate and nation. it is very clear that there was pain and anxiety in the american electorate. it is clear that the midwest was having problems and the democrats may not win. look at the focus group data. i believe that data is still important. there's a reliance on polling too much. polls are a snapshot in time. that doesn't mean tomorrow will be the same. focus groups, the type of data is really important still. francine: are we focusing too much on the relationship of the president-elect and the white house press? there's been a lot written about the fact that they don't have access to him like in the past. should we worry? morris: we shouldn't worry. when he becomes the property of -- when hestates becomes president, he is the property of the united states. francine: even his staff that he appoints? have access toill
4:38 am
the president of the united states. i don't care who it is. francine: james, how do you go into the italian referendum, what do you read, how do you become smarter, or do you just had yourself because it seems we are in uncertain times? james: one needs to understand whether the risks are symmetrical. if there are significant downside risks, you need to be aware of that. i think that we are observing a shift in the populist moods of global democracies that is now very loud and very clear. that much i think is something we should bank on. francine: what is trump's duty to america when it comes to foreign policy? morris: first and foremost, to take care of america. the fact that he's saying america first, perhaps he is saying it too strong, but that
4:39 am
is what the president needs to do. secondly, he needs to make sure there is strength and stability around the world. i think trump will ultimately reign in some of the things he said. you already see it. what he said about obama care, he's raining it in. i'll give you a perfect example. when obama came to the white house, he was antiwar. he said he was going to close guantanamo bay. guantanamo bay is still open. it is very difficult to the a strong man in america. we have checks and balances. you have to play along with the system. francine: thank you so much, morris read, james bevan, both stay with me. guy, thank you. stay with "surveillance." plenty coming up including a conversation with china. donald trump spoke to the president of the world's second-largest economy today after branding it a currency manipulator during his campaign.

4:43 am
stocks, and construction companies, all these companies which would benefit from a pickup in spending on infrastructure such as minors 2.5%. last week, we had the best week since july. those bond proxies, utilities and real estate. 30-year yield, part of that reflation. the yield on the u.s. 30-year is the highest level since january. crossing above 3% earlier. last week, the biggest move since 2009 on speculation trump would increase spending, which will boost inflation. $1.2 trillion wiped off the value of global bonds. pimco says the fed may move by three times come next year. it says long-term rates seem to have bottomed out. 10-year yields jumped by 37 basis points. it is worth remembering, hardly

anyone on wall street saw it coming. none of the analysts surveyed by bloomberg said yields would rise above 2%. functions which shows how all the main currencies have fared since trump won that election. the only currency out of 31 tracked by bloomberg which has risen is the pound. the selloff continues on prospects trump will continue spending, spur further policy tightening, curbing demand for risk. some respect for the mexican peso after an advisor to trump hinted at a softer stance on trade. emerging-market stocks, the lowest level since july. emerging-market currencies, the lowest level since june. 200here's copper. the rally continues. the reflation trade boosting

4:46 am
i'm surprised at the alarm about the putin thing. the obama administration wanted to have a reset with putin as well. some of the things donald has said are some of the things obama wanted to signal to putin. remember the conversation that was overheard. i think what donald trump is doing is saying, we want to deal with people forthright. i happen to believe that he may be anti-multi-trade opportunities, but i believe direct free trade opportunities are going to be the rage. he would rather do one-on-one deals. he's a deal guy. francine: what kind of deal will he get with the chinese? morris: i don't think it will be quick. i think it will be a negotiation. the fact of the matter is that everyone thinks china is manipulating their currency, so having a president who will negotiate this will be very interesting. it will take time and ultimately there will be peaks and valleys.
4:47 am
but i think it is a good thing that are more aggressive in dealing with china. francine: james, are you concerned that the foreign policy, if it is mishaps, and we've had strong language from some of his advisers, saying any country that has a surplus is cheating america -- if he does go down that line, what does it mean for world growth? james: if you look back to the world trade organization, the appetite that western democracies had to introduce new members, arguably people were introduced and did not have the capacity to honor the spirit of the wto agreement. and arguably north asian economies do not aim to maximize profit or in many instances make even a sustainable profit. therefore i certainly believe there will be a shift in the rhetoric about free trade rather than -- fair trade rather than free trade. i think that is good news for
4:48 am
the global economy. morris: there's nothing wrong with that. fair trade is what he's really saying. if you cut through the rhetoric, he's saying bad trade deals are bad. fair trade is going to be the thing he focuses on. i hope that he will focus on a strong dollar policy. this is one thing i've tried to push candidates to do. francine: you speak to advisers and they go as far as actually insulting other countries. you can get a fair trade deal, but it is going to be difficult for other countries to negotiate with someone that is too aggressive. what you say on the campaign trail is very different than when you go in the white house. you can't be as bombastic and flamboyant. they have to deal with people on equal footing because these are sovereign nations. francine: is europe the ultimate loser? we have nigel farage being the politician in the u.k. that has the strongest ties to donald
4:49 am
trump. where does it leave the rest of europe? euro systemkes the very much at risk. i don't think that means individual european companies for economies need suffer. i would say france is going to face a lot of pain. it has a relatively hamstrung economy, plenty of rules and regulations that make it difficult to compete, and i would suspect marine le pen would want to capitalize on those challenges. francine: what will the relationship be between angela merkel and donald trump? morris: i think great britain stands a chance to be the winner here. trump came over here and was pushing brexit. he will want to make sure that brexit works, for the fact that he believes in that, and one of the things he should be pushing is a free-trade agreement with the u.k. right away. some of the things trump wants to do are scary to some people,
4:50 am

5:06 am
and this is when governor kuroda capped the 10 year yield 5. before trump was elected. but it happened fast. tom: a lot to talk about this morning. and luckily we have great guests. joining us for the hour is larry hatheway. a global chief investment strategist at blackrock. does trumpl, what mean for interest rates? larry: higher. and the adjustment is taking place as we speak. all, borrowing. second of all, stimulus on top of a fully employed u.s. economy means the fed has to tighten faster. knowine: again, i don't how this was missed by the markets or whether they were already going higher, or if this is the fact that they believe he
5:07 am
will get everything done in terms of fiscal spending, building infrastructure and that is why it is going up? iswhat the chart highlights the bond moving higher. this has been going on since the summer. it started in june around the time of brexit. global growth holding up surprisingly well. we have seen signs of pricing pressure coming through. we are talking about a number of times on the show. gone on for a while. and i think what the trump victory does is that it amplifies the story in the market which is underway. we had a serious conversation on thursday and friday and we were adamant, life goes on. and i was yesterday at the revolution exhibit. this one is when the facts change, i change tour.
5:08 am
thefor you guys, it is when facts change. how much have the facts change? larry: they have changed quite a bit in the last five days. growth has held up better in the last three or four months hence a gentle rise in yields but this is game changing. this is about a large-scale -- large-scale fiscal package. with republicans controlling the hill and administration you will see tax cuts, defense spending and infrastructure. crucial.this is are we back to a 1960's reflation reset? is it within the scope and escape of lower for longer? we have seen 30 years of falling bond cuts. the environment of declining bond yields steers deflation. i think this is a new market environment. how rapidly inflation
5:09 am
will rise and also how rapidly yields will rise. there are investors who are happy to see yields moving up the there are potential buyers but there are is -- but the direction has changed. spend $1 he wants to trillion. how does he spend $1 trillion? it is $1 trillion he needs to find. you can tell me that in the last five days we every price everything because he will get the money for free? we simply don't know. we know that we will get fiscal stimulus. we will likely get higher interest rates going forward. a significantat proportion of that is likely going to have to be funded through more debt and supply of bonds. all of that suggest a deeper yield curve and the trends in yields to be higher their lower. yields areat where today compared to history, they
5:10 am
are still extremely low. francine: are we repricing everything to quickly? i think this is a correction that was due. we are only getting back to 10 year yields from last year. what we now have is not only the fiscal stimulus but we have rising wages. the last employment report, the last two, in fact, we have seen an interesting month on month increase in wage increase. it is also about a fully employed economy where inflation is beginning to materialize. the market must respond. is: the mexico depreciation really something. francine: you can definitely see a temper tantrum. turnill.heway, richard both are staying with us.

5:15 am
bring a market analysis of the last week and moving into this week and into december and january. richard turnill is here with us. larry hatheway has been a gentleman of wisdom over the years as well with gam. i want to talk about the mexican peso. a butterfly flapping. you have the mexican peso surging on. anthony, ring up the chart, if you would. two standard deviations. out three standard deviations. does that signal normal? or crisis? richard: neither. a significant amount of risk being priced in across all emerging markets. many emerging markets currencies have fallen. it is all about the rhetoric that we heard from donald trump and his team around the increase in pressure on trade.
5:16 am
some of that is justified. it is important to remember there are good things happening in emerging markets. earnings are upgraded. gdp growth is upgraded. domestic interest rates have come down. what we talked about earlier, the reflationary environment, rice's go up and emerging markets benefit from that reflationary environment. i love the idea. larry, help me out with extrapolation monday. bring this up again. i'm doing this in real time. he may not be extrapolating but everyone else is. larry: there are two things that are driving this. one correlation that we know is that when the dollar is strong and u.s. interest rates are rising, they are selling off. that is what we see with the peso.
5:17 am
more importantly, with the peso itself, it is the known unknown. it is known that trump once to build a wall and renegotiate nafta that it is unknown if it will became read out. so people are pricing that risk. francine: and overall, we will see much more of a correction. that means itg -- will be tightened. i think they are falling out of favor. in other words, the things that people want to take risk in is short duration. long dollar, long dollar-yen. ofrging markets are sort being essentially put in the middle of the pack and at the lower end of the pack. i agree with richard that the world is improving for emerging as a result of stronger u.s. growth. their day will come but it will take time. tom: a lot to talk about.

eu-u.s. relationships. byy have found to stand international agreements he has questioned. today, financial policy investors are making. joining us now is pierre gramegna. thank you for joining us. i have a million questions. what does a trump presidency mean for europe, economically? well, first of all, i thingse have to look at seriously and quietly. president trump has made a lot promises in the campaign, but since the day he was elected, the words he chooses and the ideas that he defends are pronounced in a more calm way and obviously, he is giving himself a presidential look and outreach.
5:23 am
and he has said he wants to cooperate with all the countries and i am pleased to hear that. all european countries are eager to work with the new president. worried aboutyou a new european existential crisis? will that come in the way of more extreme politicians coming to be elected in europe? or does this give breaks more of a voice? brexit more ofve a voice? brexit one answer to one hand, and the answer, if oriented to the u.s. president is that we need more europe. we need a europe that knows where it wants to go. and one thing that is clear to me is that we need a eurozone that is stronger. we have planned how we want to do that, and we want to be united in order to be heard. francine: are you concerned that
5:24 am
a trump presidency means that europe will be heard less? you have four and porous the -- you have foreign policy where the u.s. is stronger with russia, china and the u.k. and you guys suffer in the middle? well, the european union is 500 million people, even after the brexit, 440 million people it is the most important single market in the world. the closest business partner of the united states. i'm not worried about that. we have to continue working together on that. , we have to do the negotiation which hasn't even started yet. so he must not put the cart in front of the horse. for the time k, the u.k. is part of the european union. francine: you will be in the
5:25 am
negotiating room. what redlines are you setting in the negotiations with the u.k.? yes, definitely. we will be in that room. when it starts. article 50 will be triggered a couple of months from now. so in the first quarter of next year. in the meantime, it is difficult to know where exactly the united kingdom wants to go. on the other hand, we, as europeans, must also make sure that we have a common mandate to negotiate with the united kingdom. francine: the u.s. treasury has theicized the eu over taxation of, for example, apple. you see that changing over the trump presidency? i have seen that the new president has announced he wants to reduce taxation massively, for companies, from 35% to less
5:26 am
than 20%. that is a major move. so it shows there is going to be an increased competition about taxation between all the countries. and, as we know, there has been the initiative of the g 20 two g-20 to havee -- more common ground. in a europe and the world, so we need to sit down together and avoids that we have a race to the bottom. thank you, minister. that was the minister of luxembourg. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:30 am
it is a new york with protests. to bring us up to date on the weekend festivities in the u.s. and new york with the first word news, here is taylor riggs. british government is optimistic about working with the trump administration. boris johnson spoke to reporters in brussels. to behink there is a lot positive about and it is important not to prejudge the president-elect for his administration. thes only a few days since elections took place. i think we need to wait and see what they come up with. so i think we should regard this as a moment of opportunity. taylor: trump is signaling that he is likely to be more flexible on obamacare, which he had promised to repeal. on "60 minutes" he was asked if he wanted to keep the obamacare provision coverequires insurers to
5:31 am
pre-existing provisions. >> yes. it happens to be one of the strongest assets. also with children living with their parents for extended time. we will keep that in. it adds cost but it is something we will try to keep. there were more anti-trump rallies over the weekend. marched in new york, philadelphia, los angeles and other cities. for the most part, they were peaceful. global news, 24 hours a day. powered by our more than 2600 journalists and analysts, in more than 120 countries. i am taylor riggs. this is bloomberg. thank you. we haveing must-read, to go back to the trump transition and the election of donald trump. it, this is the title, "what america's economy needs from trump."
5:32 am
my very cloudy crystal ball shows a rewriting of the rules, but not to correct the grave mistakes of the reagan revolution, a milestone on the sordid journey that left so many behind. rather, the new rules will make the situation worse, inc. even more people from the american dream." the people are slowly getting appointed. mike: this may not tell them unify the nation. because it may not unify the white house. what donald trump has done is thet the job of a keeper to presidency. he has appointed steve bannon chiefhis strategist and reince priebus to his chief of staff. usually it is a one-person job.
5:33 am
they negotiate with capitol hill. that is the good part for trump. within the white house who objects to a lot of that. and doesn't like paul ryan. so it will be interesting to see how this works out and which one wins out in influencing the president. francine: what have we actually learned in terms of policy? ise: we have learned that he actually going to, at least, govern more as a practical president and as the bomb thrower on the campaign trail. he wants to keep parts of obama care. someso wants to do infrastructure spending, some taxcutting, and he doesn't want to build a fence. he isn't going to deport 11 million aliens immediately. so there was a lot that people expected on the capitol hill that he says he is going to do, but probably not what the people who voted for him thought he would do.
5:34 am
lawrence mckee, heway and richard turnill are on the short hill. help me with the short list. who is it? -- i'm notuld be sure that he would necessarily take it. there are two openings right now on the fed and donald trump could appoint someone to. i've been asking around and nobody has a good idea who might get the job because trump did not have a lot of support among orthodox economists around the country. so it will be an interesting choice when he gets to it. i imagine they are way down the list on the jobs he has to fill. tom: scope and scale your weekend reading that you have seen on the move in markets. in no way a crisis.
5:35 am
the peso, interest rates -- they might migrate out further towards more standard deviations? mike: that does seem to be the feeling in the markets. the united states is going to significantly reinflate and spend a lot of money. but will put inflationary pressure on the united states. the dollar is going to rise and it will make it harder for emerging markets. they will reflect that with money flowing out of there into the u.s.. the question is, what really happens on capitol hill? until we know, the investment seems to be betting that is the way it will happen. ,rancine: here in the studio larry hatheway and richard turnill. can we see some of the growth that we are expecting? guy, how do you
5:36 am
look at the political system in the u.s. now? larry: there is a guy, how do yu look at the duty to be president for all americans. it is also "making america great again" so in domestic policy it is largely fiscal stimulus and deregulation. foreign policy, doing no harm. that is the big concern here. aggregation of the various treaties, climate change, the agreement with iran, they are potential blockbuster events and i think the obligation there is that if one is going to make significant changes, also change for the better. francine: how does that impact the markets going forward and what kind of president trump will we see? the domestic agenda from president-elect, one that involves more fiscal spending, good news for growth -- but a foreign policy that is bad for
5:37 am
growth and relay away from trade agreements, we can expect to see more tensions. which is negative not just for emerging markets but also for global growth. and right now, what the market is saying is that there is much more conviction that the president will act on the former site of reflationary policies and will be more pragmatic on the second set. tom: i was watching england cricket. i still don't get it. i don't get cricket. you were on conference calls with blackrock. what changed in terms of investment attitude from this election or is it just analysis? richard: i will talk about what we're seeing in terms of client flows -- we are not seeing any crisis. no panic. no people moving money dramatically. i think that is an important point.
5:38 am
secondly, the investment attitudes, the reflationary attitude, it is becoming reaffirmed. you lookcause when forward, there has been big risks that could derail the economy -- brexit and trump -- neither seem to have derailed the economy. when you look forward, you say, what is coming? and it is increasing conviction that this trend will continue. it means that with an equity market, areas like financials do better, bonds struggle. mike mckee, we have david folkerts-landau coming up with us later. are you seeing anyone make radical adjustments? i don't see that. mike: the radical adjustments came the day after the election when people decided the economic good times would probably continue and that we would see
5:39 am
money from the fiscal side. so that is the story. and until donald trump and members of congress change that narrative, you don't see any reason that we will see something like that. tom: michael mckee, thank you. it is time for a correction. francine: but you are learning cricket. tom: i'm trying. it goes all the way out to the border. francine: and a game last three days. -- what is it about the game lasting three days? we will be here in london all week. an important week for london economics. next we will frame the election in the united states with someone who has given us terrific perspective on china. jonathan fenby will join us. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:43 am
speaking with. but we know he spoke to vladimir putin and he spoke to china. is this a good or bad thing? , one ofsolatory message the first calls he accepted? jonathan: of course. they want to work together. no one will say anything different at this stage. the real question -- we don't know what trump spina -- what trump's china policy will be. it is dividing up the economic and geopolitical strategic side of american policy. and he will probably play those two off one another in the weeks and months to come. francine: what is the one thing that you want to hear about, that will put you at ease with donald trump's foreign policy? the rhetoric, agreements, talking about trade -- what is the one thing that will reassure the markets that he won't damage
5:44 am
foreign relationships? jonathan: what he doesn't say. don't talk about 45% terrorists on chinese goods, which would set off a trade war and would be destructive for u.s. companies who are using china as a manufacturing base. if you follow with that kind of campaign rhetoric, it would be worrying. and the other thing he shouldn't japan that he will leave and south korea to look after themselves and go nuclear if they want. so what we want from him is to take his time, he cautious, and work out what actually would be the cost of the campaign rhetoric, and why he has to dial it down sharply. ago,jonathan fenby, long republican foreign-policy was -- they were trotting out and there was an immense tension between taiwan and china. are we going to see a new tension? a new going to see
5:45 am
tension in the relationship between taiwan and beijing? jonathan: i think you have put your finger on a very important element in the relationship. , which is situation being largely overlooked. it is very different because what you have in taiwan now is the party which won an overwhelming victory in presidential elections in january. and they are pretty autonomous minded. they don't like the mainland and they don't want anything to do with the mainland. and it could be for other nationalist reasons. putting pressure on taiwan after having put pressure on hong kong and it would be a big press for the white house. tom: tell me about the adjacencies in asia. we are not pivoting forward. how do you presume adjacent countries to china would react
5:46 am
to the trump election? jonathan: japan is very worried. prime minister abe was one of the first people to ask for a meeting with trump. they depend on the treaty relationship and the u.s. fleet and air force keeping the equilibrium in east asia. they are very worried. south korea is also in an uncertain place. president, big demonstrations against her over the weekend and her popularity is said to be down to 5%. rumors about who is influencing her. and over the border, the young leader in north korea who may feel he wants to show off some of his new weapons and twice before trump gets settled into the white house. francine: when you look at investments and foreign policy, , does it change a lot change investments or strategies on china or pressure -- china or
5:47 am
russia? larry: these things are difficult to pull together. and there will be other directives. but if i think of one thing that falls out of this from the capital markets is that countries everywhere are now going to have to look more after their own security. i think that will be the reaction. europe has two strengthen security. japan, korea -- they have to think twice about how much of their own security they want to pay for and there are obvious investment implications on the cyber security and defense spending. they will receive a boost in this environment. tom: i look at a three-way relationship of the u.s. dollar. g5. dollar to the g3, g4, u.s. dollar to the e.m. and the u.s. dollar to asia. do you look at it wrapped together? richard: what we have seen in
5:48 am
the past is a gradually rising u.s. dollar. not a brutal move. the dollar is rising because u.s. and global growth are improving. that has been an environment in asia,rging markets specifically, have done very well. tips into ait' disruptive environment is the dollar as a safe haven environment as trade tensions increase. and the rise in the dollar, that is one of the risks that asian markets face, going forward. if we look at asia, one of the key methods for investing for some time was to focus on the markets that were less vulnerable. a domestic with recovery story under way. in india, you actually have a very important reform story
5:49 am
under way, as well, and potentially avoid the areas that are exposed to global growth. tom: one more question off your new book -- what would charles de gaulle do? to president elect trump? jonathan: he would have a few choice words to say at home and then he would probably go to washington and offer his advice on the state of the world. .rump is quite goal list tom: we continue this morning jonathan fenby's colleague. global view with a and american view of our new president-elect. this is bloomberg. ♪

5:54 am
elections in france and germany. investors are looking at those elections. gone down.lity has there is more risk around what is happening in europe. that, the trump election victory amplifies the differences between what is going on in the united states. a reflationary trend which has been happening for some time. more fiscal expansion post trump victory. in europe, growth remains low with a little sign of inflation. and very little flexibility to implement the type of policies you will see in the united states. it is likely, given what we've seen, that the italian 10 year, the spread between italy and germany widens. in terms of what it means, people have wanted to short bonds for a while. short italiano be

the first word now with taylor riggs. trying donald trump is to balance competing wings within the republican party. he has named reince priebus to be the white house chief of staff. his chief strategist will be steve bannon. he is the favorite of the tea party wing of the party. trump said he was saddened to hear that some of his supporters have attacked minorities since the election. he was asked about the attacks on an interview on "60 minutes." say, don't do it. that is terrible. i'm going to bring the country together. i am so saddened to hear that. and i say, stop it. if it helps, i will say this -- and i will say it to the cameras -- stop it. anti-trumpnwhile,
6:02 am
protesters took to the streets in a number of cities. new york, philadelphia, los angeles and others. protests were peaceful for the most part. a massive earthquake has rocked new zealand. there was widespread damage. areaasured 7.5 and hit an near christchurch. damage could be several billion dollars. paris marks the one-year anniversary of the islamic state attacks that killed 130 people. paper lanterns were released and staying reopened the that the klan nightclub where most of the batams -- reopened the clan nightclub where most of the victims were killed. global news, 24 hours a day. powered by our more than 2600 journalists and analysts, in more than 120 countries. i am taylor riggs. this is bloomberg. tom: we look at a 1% two-year yield. futures up 10.
6:03 am
green on the screen. been a backstory. it will be interesting to see where that migrates with the data reset. next screen, i want to get to the euro-swissie. a stronger swiss franc. francine: i think there is a big move in treasuries with the two-year. tops 3%.ar , global bonds.y dollar climbing. that gives you the full picture of the donald trump election. tom: here is a chart on fed meetings. we have shown this for 1.5 years. you can see the massive spike up right to the 1% line and that was the extrapolated target that never happened. well, it has happened now with a vengeance.
6:04 am
this is like dow 10,000. francine: i like the fact that you look at the two-year yield, i benchmarked the 10 year yield. tom: this is even more than when we started the show this morning. francine: going up to 2.25%. tom: look how japan can't get going. francine: the problem is that the trend started when governor kuroda started talking about capping the 10 year. you can see this is clearly donald trump selection move. -- donald trump's election move. tom: we are thrilled to bring -- a wonderful time to synthesize and summarize where we are. researcheutsche bank -- i think you could say he is in charge of the bank, but we won't say that.
6:05 am
if we get a trump rise in interest rates, does that do the work for janet yellen? is that alds, substitute for rate increases? david: no, it isn't. still feelsthe fed pressure to normalize and have ammunition to go the other way shouldn't have to do that. so we are so far off what is normal that we clearly expect december will be hiked and two more next year. it will not impact the economy very much. but the feel-good factor is perfectly justified. you look at the half a dozen issues that the president-elect -- if he only achieves 10% of what he wants to do, it is very positive for the u.s. outlook. tom: can you fold the market reaction in extrapolated were
6:06 am
correlated over to increased gdp, and is it increased inflation or increased real gdp within the mix? david: increased real gdp. a supply-sidelly .ttempt you get regulatory reform, tax reform, trade reform, and protector spending and all of stimulated be highly over the long-term. it won't happen until may or june but it will be over the next 18 months. at the same time, given that labor markets are near full employment, i would expect that it will translate pretty quickly in increased inflation expectations and inflation itself. it definitely has a real underpinning. it isn't just anticipation of inflation. francine: if you add in his
6:07 am
promise to spend one trillion dollars on infrastructure -- going back to interest rates, how many hikes are you expecting next year? david: two. but i will caution, we are in a new environment and there are things that we can't quite forecast to change that. but if things go roughly the way i think they will go, the president-elect gets 10%-30% of what he wants to do, then i expect two. there does come a point, the of ministration is aiming for higher rates to normalize. beyond a certain point, 1.5%-2%, you try to slow down. francine: let's say three by the end of the year, they do not hurt the common american -- does that go against taking care of the people who are worse off? david: we have two factors.
6:08 am
at the same time, we have further increases in employment and growth of income and it will offset that to a large extent. so by and large, we are probably in the minority here -- but i strongly think on these changes that are in the works. ,om: the late rudy dornbusch who you and i associate with the phrase "overshoot." far,e overshoot and go too rate wise? did a very careful steady. he looked at the populace governments in emerging markets. and he found that almost universally, they didn't follow through with their promises and the country was worse off after four years. that the u.s. is not an emerging market country. tom: exclusive.
6:09 am
the u.s. is not a banana republic. continue. david: so that argument is not valid. but it is challenging to get right. to reasonable distribution and lots of political influences, but i believe, that given the circle of people around him who have written on that -- they will get it right. they are aware of the risks and they will get it right. francine: is very concerned for bond market spending? normalized, you have the 30, 10 and two-year in treasuries. david: absolutely. there is a huge difference between the u.s. and europe right now, in the sense that the bond vigilantes in the u.s. are alive and kicking. and if you violate the basic
6:10 am
tenants of the interest rate dynamics, you will pay for it. so i think the 10 year will get -- will pose a restraint on what can be done and it will be there to police more radical approaches. which is not true in europe, where it has been removed from most of the markets. spain, portugal and france to some extent. francine: do you think the most he can do is 10% of his promises? when he comes to fiscal spending? or is it too early? david: i don't know. what i meant to say is that that i ready is reports about him not doing what he promised to do. of course he is not. but will it be substantive enough? it is pretty easy to do. not hard to do. i want to jump forward to
6:11 am
what we will talk about later in the hour. you mentioned police. thate distinction now there is no police? we are in a floating society and the globalization and speed of market reaction, where there is simply no police out there to help with the adjustment? david: i think it is one of the great failings of the international system. that we have allowed significant substantive countries to manipulate exchange rates, without crying foul. we have seen big asian countries piling up 3 trillion in reserves and we didn't dare to call it a currency manipulation. that opens the intervening and happene -- this didn't by itself. someone pushed the exchange rate down. but nothing happened. from that point of view, when
6:12 am
you talk to donald trump's advisers, they have a point. trade has been a free-for-all, reasonable rules or justifications, and it has done serious damage to the economy. -- to go to david: -- it just means there needs to be some norm and behavior -- tom: we will jump back in with david folkerts-landau. what a week in the united states. sunday evening, the president-elect spoke on "60 minutes." a washington that wakes up to a new week in america. stay with us on economic finance and investments and a new president. this is bloomberg. ♪

6:17 am
speed of information and globalization has changed the political processes of washington? marty: i think they absolutely have. presidency ismp's proof of that. he conducted an unorthodox campaign. he did not spend a lot of money. and here he is, president elect. francine: what does who donald trump picks as staff yesterday tell us? he picks a clear outsider but also someone from the establishment? sort of a cat in the bag management strategy. and through his business life, he has tended to do that. put people who don't necessarily agree with each other under him and have them fight it out. whether you can actually do that in a presidency is another question. people have tried it in business and it doesn't work. francine: one of the most
6:18 am
contentious points at the moment -- do we have any clues on who we will puton who as secretary of state and treasury secretary? you have heard the names and they are just names. you have new greg rich for secretary of state but i doubt that. in these processes, they throw out names to placate people who supported him. the cabinet choices will say a lot about which direction donald trump is going. establishment or antiestablishment. , thank youschenker so much. look to lubricant news today for all of the news we will see out of washington. news todaybloomberg for all of the news we see out of washington. responsiveness and globalization, or is this like the 1914?

6:20 am
i praise you that will involve wto referrals. immigration, no doubt. million has 11.3 illegal immigrants. no other country in the world has that. illegal immigrants. so something has to be done. obviously, you can't deport them but you could support the borders. then, taxation. the u.s. has the highest corporate tax rates and companies keep cash abroad. has a high income tax rate. if you live in new york, as donald trump did -- tom: did you know that?

6:32 am
getting back infrastructure. what can he do? >> if you believe in these policies, they can go up. inflation, how much will he get through congress? that is the first question. the second one is protectionism. protectionism is inflationary, but it is cost-inflation. if that is the case, that could hinder growth. from that point of view, there are so many? questionre are so many marks. if you think that protectionism could actually hinder the growth of the u.s. economy, you will not refund the dollar at all. i think it is quite clear that the high yields are putting the dollar up. three months, 12 months down the line, we could look at a completely different set of
6:33 am
parameters. francine: yanis falling today. -- yen is falling today. the short answer, as u.s. yields go up, it sucks potential and that is where you have some of these issues. it depends on which country you are looking at three commodity countries are perhaps a little bit different. if you look at new zealand, using one -- new zealand has had -- if you look at friday, they were backed by the idea that china growth could slow. u.s. imports more will country.a if donald trump becomes protectionist, he said on his website that he wants to be

6:38 am
sterling alone, and brexit. that cost a lot of companies quite a lot in terms of the changes in their positions. in terms of hedging going forward, i would imagine that because of volatility, many really are hedged. this is going to be potentially very costly. if they have this wrong. that feeds back into corporate results. francine: i also do not understand, if you have to manage -- we talked a lot the italian referendum september 4, and the french presidential election. you believe?nt do if the polls were wrong on brexit and donald trump, if you go into a week before the referendum, the election, what do you believe? do you hedge naturally -- do you hedge nationally and do not take any bets? have a lot of this should been hedged for this already. at some point, the hedges roll

off. at that point, the hedges do get hit. for some customers, this could be a good thing. we are talking about wealth in the mexican peso. exporters are hopeful. certainly for many, those could be distractions. tom: strong dollar, oil under $43 a barrel in the united states. the knock-on effects here are substantial. can oil migrate stronger? david: it could, but i don't think very much. fracking isng from such that you see supply pulling back. range. be in the 45 so, no. with the u.s. supply coming on and coming off -- jane foley,
