4:05 am
when united states had maximum leverage, this disastrous deal gave this regime, and it is a regime of great terror, many billions of dollars, some of it in actual cash, a great embarrassment to me as a citizen, and to all citizens of the united states. that was the president making his highly anticipated announcement yesterday. here is how global leaders reacted. implementation of this decision, we will wait for some weeks and hold talks with our friends and allies, and other signatories of the nuclear deal. those who will remain loyal to the deal will talk. israel was opposed to the nuclear deal from the start, the we said rather than blocking iran's path to a bomb, it paves their path to an arsenal of nuclear bombs, and within a few years time. >> the nuclear deal of iran is
4:06 am
crucial to the security of the region of europe and the world. >> we encourage all ties to continue to comply with the deal, and we certainly will do everything we can to support that. francine: let's get to our team of reporters to cover this story. our editor is in dubai. he is are managing editor for global business, and he is covering what this means for european companies. he is based in berlin. the reaction have we seen from global leaders, and we are expecting five countries to keep their agreement with iran. how does that work? earlierave mentioned it two you have israel and saudi arabia supporting trump's decision. they have been opposed to the
4:07 am
deal for quite some time. roleare critical of iran's in the region, they see them encroaching on saudi arabia's own interests. and israel has been opposed from the beginning because they are concerned about the nuclear program because they think iran wants to weaponize. there have been a string of european leaders who have gone to the u.s. trying to convince donald trump not to go ahead with this decision. they did not succeed. now, they are saying they regret the decision. they are going to stick to the agreement. the iranians want to stick to the agreement. benedict, what does it mean for european companies -- european countries that have business with iran. >> there is a corporate dimension, a political debate. the question is, where do we go
4:08 am
from here? 's business really started taking off. order -- what happens to these contracts? do they have to mothball them? will they be about to fulfill them? how do they unwind that position in that market. we have only had a couple of companies appealing to the european leaders saying, we need your support and europe needs to step up to the plate area we want to continue to do business. at the same time, we do not want to endure the wrath of the u.s. that would find we are not in compliance. the tricky situation for companies in that market, we had earnings from siemens, and the ceo has talked about this. , weoeing around the issue will have to see how it plays
4:09 am
out in the next couple of weeks. francine: the response from to will- tehran, they continue enriching uranium in the couple with -- in the next couple weeks. is there anything they can do to get on the right side? riad: i don't know if it is getting on the better side of iran, for them they felt it would benefit them economically. it is about the economy for iran . what the iranians will be looking for is a commitment from the europeans and the rest of the world saying, if you stick to the agreement, you will continue to see business coming your way. it has to be said, there are european companies that have invested, chinese companies that have invested, but it has not been the flood of deals that the iranians and europeans had hoped for. some factions had a hesitation
4:10 am
in the financial system to allow money to flow to iran, and now with this, it comes to a complete halt. it will turn into blockage. anduropean companies countries want to encourage deals, without a financial system allowing money to flow, it will be blocked. francine: thank you both. our managing editor for global business, and our executive editor in the middle east. oil is at the highest level since 2014. what does this mean for markets? thank you for joining us. geopolitics, they are in uncharted territory. this could have an effect on
4:11 am
south korea. there could be a rubber -- reverberation in the talks with north korea. we are in uncharted territory because of the breakdown because of diplomatic channels between ,llies, you talk about the u.k. australia, germany, and the inability to get an advanced therefrom the u.s. regarding pull outns whether to of the deal or remain in. what is interesting is the two schools of thought. one is to make the threat credible to a ron. the u.s. needs to appear like they will follow through, and not telling their allies in a way, it is fine ramping up rhetoric. it ensures there is no leakage in the credibility of that. the flipside is there a breakdown of traditional unity which one of the countries we have not heard from yet, very
4:12 am
silent on this issue, breakdown the alliance in this situation. it makes to your question, an unprecedented set of geopolitics. francine: the raa saying russia will respect the arabian nuclear deal. what does this mean for markets? way i see this event is an increasing geopolitical risk. it is increasing not only because of the tension between iran and saudi arabia. the increase risk of military action in the middle east. -- all this geopolitical risk, more inflation.
4:13 am
in the case of the oil price going up, and possibly more inflation is a squeeze for real wages, and drive on consumption. and it can be a drive on growth. . goldilocks last year was extremely sick rise growth global trade, -- synchronized trade,, to give you an example last year, the dollar depreciated 10%, which is good for liquidity in the u.s. dollar. on top of that, we have the g4 , as the central bank balance sheets increasing by 2.7 billion last year. which means for the market growth is higher than inflation
4:14 am
also equity markets. this is a game changer. francine: does it mean you have to change a forecast on the price of oil? simon: yes. a lot of the oil price appreciation has been a result of venezuelan capacity being taken out of the market. that is causing a quicker rebalancing. from our perspective, that has been the key driver so far. i would agree, what we are getting is a secondary wave of disruption in countries where demand, supply has been growing. million to 4.5 million barrels a day from the iranians. barrels is million taken off the market, we are
4:15 am
back to sanction conditions. oil can kick on material from here, and the said -- the same headwinds we spoke about earlier come into sharp focus. not as quickly as we assume, the going into 2019. francine: thank you. simon french, chief economist, panmure gordon and antonio del favero, senior portfolio strategist, rubrics asset management stay with us. according to people briefed on close.ter, a decision is the plans would follow the move to retreat from businesses it deems less competitive. germans bank reporter is with us. , or wes this report understand from sources they may cut 20% of staff, something deutsche bank has denied. >> yes, that is right.
4:16 am
the interesting part, if you look at the business unit globally, they go to the bank unit by unit and decide how much to cut it. those cuts could add up to 20% of the u.s. workforce in the maximum scenario. that could be a drastic cutback for the u.s. operations. what is happening at deutsche bank, and how does it change their future in the u.s.? at the looking operations they have singled out a few units to cut. for example, prime brokerage. u.s. finance. they will close the houston office which was the coverage location.
4:17 am
that will go away. all of those businesses will be affected. it will mean they are reducing the operations. it is difficult to anticipate how many side effects this will have on other parts of the business. if client say, if you pull out of that area, then you don't want to do business with us cutting tieswe are with you. it is difficult to anticipate that. they're trying to figure out that the side effects can be minimized. francine: thank you, steven arons, our banking reporter. vladimir putin is said to have sent to donald trump's lawyer last year. this is bloomberg. ♪

4:23 am
the that trump's lawyer also used for the hush money paid to stormy daniels. do we know what was behind this? >> no. it was once described as a u.s. affiliate, this russian oligarch was sanctioned in the recent round of sanctions. by the u.s. administration. since then, he has tried to distance himself. . the response to this payment is had nothing toch do with this payment, no control over the money, he does not own the company. x overted to distance -- vekselberg from this. he has extensive holdings in russia.

'sney was given to trump inauguration committee. they are saying this company is controlled by u.s. citizens, and this is legal. officially, this payment to cohen's company was to scope out real estate deals. they say they ended that because it did not result in interesting investments. know how theye obtained the bank information? is it involving the president or a nondisclosure agreement? the most: this is interesting thing. you really see these brain transfer details -- bank transfer details. has notavenatti revealed how he got this information. one has to assume it was part of
4:25 am
the litigation that he somehow got them through a subpoena or disclosures. it is unusual to have this kind of detail. i do not think this came from molars camp. camp.ller's it is astonishing because the paymentsany received from major u.s. global corporations, at&t, novartis, and others. there are a lot of questions to be asked. francine: what happens next? the special counsel digging deeper? stephanie: i think in the stormy daniels case, they are expecting a hearing in two weeks. we may find out further details there. there may be further disclosures. i still think there are other questions to be asked about

4:31 am
capacity, but some analysts are saying they are not going to answer. they want to keep prices tight. they are talking $80 per barrel, so they have the capacity, but will they? one thing we need to keep in mind, is not just iran we see a deficit from, there is venezuela, even angola, which could be a risk to these production numbers. on the consumer side of the china, india,,, turkey, italy are the top five. the u.s. said they would go after any other nations doing business with iran. looking to other places to buy crude, saudi could be one. india at one point was buying a raining crude -- iranian crude.

4:36 am
before mario draghi said he would do whatever it takes. what needs to happen? simon: the sign that growth has to where growth would deteriorate. points, is not just activism, but as the economy grows, 1.4% does not sound great, but after 10 years of flattening growth, but in the first quarter and second quarter, the italian economy is seeing unemployment about 11% flat lining. challenge is the longer he puts in a technocratic government at a time when the economy may be deteriorating, then more support will shift back to the league and the five-star movement if people do not feel an economic recovery
4:37 am
company -- economic recovery coming. antonio: i agree. i would like to add that last year we had synchronized growth, one of the main things coming now, the growth is less synchronized. we see europe that is slowing down, but versus the u.s. it is growing at a healthy 2.3% for the first quarter. that divergence is due mainly to the fact that in europe we have a nonperforming loans problem, about one trillion euros. and the money is not flowing to the system. crisis we were at 10%. in europe it was growing at 12% before the crisis, now is that 4%. it is not a surprise.
4:38 am
inflation is starting to disappoint. there is room for an inflation spike. back,ope, core inflation is in line with money not flowing to the system. francine: we are getting breaking news the retail space. some of these companies are changing hands, example vodafone. the softbankg from chief executive. let's see if she says walmart will buy flipkart. it provides books, movies, and the likes to a lot of consumers that want to buy them. it is like the amazon of india if i understand it correctly. does e-commerce merging have an
4:39 am
impact on how you model economics because prices go down? it too far-fetched. simon: it is a huge part of what we have seen the last decade. e-commerce, you could have geographical price monopolies. what does that mean in reality? it means you can have prices that could rise because of local economic factors. e-commerce makes that less tenable. price arbitrage disrupts prices coming down or the ability to raise prices. it is front and center why we have been in a deflationary decade, and why we will get another decade to come of that. francine: that has huge implications for monetary policy.
4:40 am
in terms ofed economic strength. antonio: it is not clear at the moment. the data is not coming strong. we latest inflation data, cannot confirm strength of the european economy. it is confirming a slowdown. we do not know if it is a slowdown or contraction. 1.i want to make, at the moment itis more of a slowdown, could be just the first quarter, we need to see. gdp is always revise later. gdp is to remind that revise later. 25,he u.s., on november 2008, it was not known yet the gdp in the first quarter was dropping. just to give you an example.
4:41 am
maycine: on brexit, theresa , still don't know what to do with northern ireland, are we more likely to have a soft exit or a hard brexit? simon: defeats are stacking up. defeats think the lords really send a huge message. to those unfamiliar with the parliamentary system in the u k, what really matters is the autumn vote on the final brexit deal. the question is what the house of common mps take their cue from the lords, pushing for a softer brexit. if that emboldens enough to vote against government. the government will try to make this an issue of no-confidence and forced through their preferred measure. if it is soft or hard, i think it favors a softer brexit. francine: thank you so much for

business is covering european companies in berlin. on the one hand, you have five countries wanting to keep the deal alive. on the other hand, the iranian president -- look, he is on standby if they need to enrich uranium. what happens next? bethe iranians are going to seeking talks with europeans to the out what it means if u.s. three imposes sanctions. what does that mean for european companies doing business in iran? a continuedans see benefit from europeans in staying in the deal and working with europeans, china and asian economies -- you might see them saying -- the benefits outweigh the disadvantages of staying in. they might stick. say,ey see -- the european we want you to stay with the deal but we cannot force companies to invest in you and
5:08 am
companies might hesitate, even more than they have now because they are afraid of u.s. secondary sanctions -- the iranians might say, well, what benefit do we have from that? what do we gain? we will go if you look at industry groups in europe, who is the most impacted? this is a gamble for the european companies. what the risk, the roar? is it worth picking a fight with the u.s. over a business in iran? it is nice to have that does this but not necessarily the huge business it is worth fighting for. there are so many other markets that might be impacted if there are secondary sanctions.
5:09 am
morning,they said this they will look at this closely. they said we will always be in compliance. companies are taking a close look at risk and reward, is it worth picking this kind of a fight? do we have the backing from the european governments to go in there? tom: good morning. i would like to talk about the word of the united states. forget about the trite stuff we've heard. saudi arabia said what we would say -- said what we knew they would say. forget it. here is roger cohen in the new york times this morning with a scathing essay. there are different opinions. brad stevens, for the president. that is what diplomacy is all about. 101. arrived atolutions between enemies better than the alternatives. "america has made a mockery of
5:10 am
the value of its signature on an international agreement just the shredding of a singular diplomatic achievement." how good is the word of the united states in treaties this morning? is the issue of trust in the united states's role in the region. saudi arabia trusts americans because they say, we are doing exactly -- they are doing exactly what we want them to do. there is also the issue -- you under the obama administration, they was criticism that were not as attentive to the region or supportive of the governments as the governments wanted the u.s. administration to be. there is a? roleestion about the u.s. and, is the u.s. still the
5:11 am
dominant player in the middle east, the way it used to be? the trump administration seems to want to play that role again and is aligning it will closely with isreal and saudi arabia. francine: thank you so much. , morganus now, hans stanley had of global and professor paul de grauwe. professor, let me kick off with you. there anything that the europeans can do to keep the iranian deal alive? it is too late to get the u.s. inside the can they work on a second agreement? paul: it will be difficult. as the previous speaker said, companies will hesitate. they are so uncertainty about what the future will be and what the potential sanctions and the cost of all that could be. as a result, even without action
5:12 am
of governments, there will be an effect on business. this being said, something can be done. we have to start thinking about the long-term implications of actions like this. it is clear that the kind of sanctions the u.s. government is able to impose, is the result of the fact that the dollar is at the center of the financial system. that will mean in the long run, this dominant position of the dollar is put into question. the attractive business of an international currency is the fact that -- you can use it unhindered without restriction. if that dollar is being used as a weapon of international politics -- then of course, you undermine the attractiveness of the dollar. if the european nations are
5:13 am
forward-looking in the long run, they should do everything to undermine the position of the dollar in the international financial system and to push the euro as an alternative. it will not be easy. it is not the first time in history that a currency at the core disappeared. a country where that happened -- why not for the dollar? in the long run, american policy is a policy that -- thailand,or, mexico, indonesia. are we setting ourselves up for a correlated em collapse? terms ofill take it in yesterday, fed president powell, balance sheets. those emerging markets getting their balance sheets in order -- they have a problem when funding costs are going up. when you see that, the
5:14 am
environment for the u.s. dollar is turning in the short-term toward bullish. we sat down yesterday and looked, what is the driver in emerging markets? risk appetite? real rates? the u.s. dollar? selloff havemarket been mainly triggered by the evolution of the u.s. dollar. starting in february, gaining momentum in april, the dollar has gone up. when you have dollar liabilities, that matters. countries that have massive dollar liabilities came under selling pressure. this can have self enforcing powers. those in the past which got dollar inflows, banks using dollars as collaterals, pushing local money supply numbers
5:15 am
higher -- you had good funding conditions. it changes the topic. we have to think about what will happen with the u.s. dollar in the long-term. i completely agree with what you said before -- the u.s. dollar is in a secular bear market. it started last year in january. you have a correction within the bear market, today you cannot have twin deficits been trying to find that an environment where globally, funds are less available. it is less effective for the u.s. dollar. tom: we had a wonderful 25th anniversary, bloomberg radio party last night. ken darkened the door. greatgo to other international economic textbooks. a, a linkagerilemm

thought it was irrelevant, he might as well bring it out in public and embarrass them and try to make them make further missteps. it is entirely separate from russian collusion or influence on the campaign or anything like that. his case is about the nondisclosure agreement and wants to win that case. is just toelse, embarrass donald trump and his followers. francine: thank you so much. let's get to the bloomberg business flash. toyota forecasting better than expected annual profit. the world's most valuable automaker cutting costs to deal with a slowdown in the biggest market, the u.s. toyota announced a $2.7 billion stock buyback. the world's largest long-haul airline, emirates boosted profit 7%. lower margin flights benefited

when you see those funds becoming more expensive, then you are in a very problematic situation because it shoots up your domestic inflation that deflates real disposable income. at the same time you have domestic credit availability because the dollar flow is drying up. you have become a nation of declining domestic demand tied to funding conditions domestically. that is weakening the economies. this is a natural adjustment process because many dependent on foreign funding flows. you see that those are becoming less, and you need to adjust accordingly. you need to reduces capital import needs and the adjustment on domestic demand is how it works. this is a very painful process, but it is a clear reminder if

can you expect to make -- what kind of investment can you expect to make in the u.s. with the power of deutsche telekom? bridge have built a huge and combination plan for the upcoming years. there is investment up to $15 ,illion just going to entities and we have huge investments planned for the 5g rollout. there will be a three-year time period where we are realizing $30 billion. a very sound business plan if we were allowed to merge, we can compete then with the two big players. matt: thanks so much for your of deutscheettges in bo

5:54 am

here's how iran's president responded. and ordered the irani atomic energy -- iranian atomic energy association to be ready if needed to begin our industrial enrichment without limitations. we will wait for some weeks and hold talks with our friends and allies and other signatories of the nuclear deal. those who will remain loyal to the deal will talk. francine: joining us now is bloomberg's chief washington , and our executive editor for the middle east. how is this being taken in iran? the president has said get ray to restart the nuclear program, basically. gethe same time, said ready. not that we are out of the deal. basically he was to talk to the
6:06 am
europeans, and find out if the europeans are able to give any beurances that they will able to stick to the deal, to come through with a commitment. basically what he means by that, allow european investment or chinese or russian investment into iran in spite of the u.s. sanctions coming now. francine: kevin, what will be president trump's next move? is that it? there's not going to be a second renegotiation phase, a second agreement? kevin: they say there is going to be. yesterday we saw the president during his remarks try to get out front in terms of criticism of what the next steps are. he announced during his address that the secretary of state mike pompeo was in route as he was speaking to north korea to continue talks is north korean dictator kim jong on -- kim jong-un. he also spoke directly to the iranian people and said they
6:07 am
feel that president rouhani will say they don't want to have continued negotiation talks, but that the president is willing whenever they are of that concern. will beina haspel undergoing her confirmation hearing in the senate for cia director. there's a lot of moving parts. the administration trying to put , cohesivefrontal message from yesterday's announcement. ade in dubairiah ham , kevin cirilli with us in washington. i want to bring in gregory valliere. why is america not buying the president? did he do this unilaterally because he cannot stand anything barack obama did as president? gregory: that is part of it. but here is the big bottom line. the israelis are starting to
6:08 am
move missile strikes into southern syria. i think the israelis now will feel unshackled. i am worrying about a looming conflict in the middle east. kevin, what will you watch today about the reaction of these iranian decisions? kevin: it is going to be interesting to see what gina haskell testifies today -- gina haspel testifies today. she will be questioned about the exact operation in the middle east, and i think there's a lot of questions on that. president trump yesterday had two phone calls. one with french president emmanuel macron, the other with chinese president xi jinping. there are questions about what exactly this means for the looming talks with north korea. francine: certainly one angle we need to follow very closely.
6:09 am
the europeans and other western countries want to stay in this accord with iran. can they do it? h: as you said, they want to. they want this accord to continue. theycome out and said that want it. the iranians have said the same thing. the problem is the reason iran is staying in this deal is to stay investment and to keep the economy out of trouble. they need the europeans not they want to stay a part of the deal, but they need to do business in iran and not be impacted by the direct sanctions the americans will impose, i.e. american components in european products, or even -- even secondary sanctions where it has been really tough for the iranians to get to the money to get investments in. tom: thank you so much.
6:10 am
morningne question this , do you anticipate any actions by mr. mueller given the heightened news flow we have seen of these linkages of mr. cohen to russian money? kevin: i think this is just a continuation of the developments why all of that salacious miss matters. follow the money, -- salacious salaciousness matters. follow the money. mr. mueller's team is about to go fishing. tom: we follow a huge news flow this morning as we look at all of these turmoils in foreign exchange. greg valliere with us on foreign investment. there's so many ways to go here. the midterm elections started yesterday.
6:11 am
who won? trump had a pretty good night. the west virginia seats could go to the republicans. i think trump had a pretty good night. unrests still voter against the swamp. it is still out there. within the swamp are these decisions president trump makes. does it play in the heartland? gregory: no. hear thishe stuff i morning, people in the center of the country don't care about michael cohen. they think it is fake news. they think it is exaggerated. tom: i want you to talk about the dollar strength we have seen. what is the character of the dollar strength when you look at this maelstrom? gregory: the politics in some
6:12 am
ways doesn't really matter. to february,k march, and april, the dollar index fell only one week in each month, said three weeks in each month the dollar is going up. the federal reserve can be more confident than any other central bank about reaching it's a check this -- reaching its objectives. you don't think it is making america great again, 3% gdp? gregory: no, i think they can be confident and that there is this huge pileup of fiscal policy in the pipeline. i think what the markets are trading on is there is further rate hikes that could lead to higher markets. that helps explain dollar-yen back near 110. francine: let me go back to ,omething that you said that people in the center of the
6:13 am
country don't care about michael cohen. what we found out overnight is that a company tied to russian payarchs loan 500 -- company for access to president trump, that was paid to stormy daniels. applications.ig the documents they got from michael cohen i think our explosive and will get leaked. faceel cohen can either bank fraud and jail time, or he could turn against trump. it is quite a choice coming for him. this is very unlikely that you get those documents in this part of the investigation. gregory: i think people are leaking like sieves right now. people who have seen these documents are starting to leak.
6:14 am
tom: within the elections last night, i was surprised at how subdued the coverage was. did conor lamb show up, the general and from southwest of pittsburgh? the democrats show another hint of a conor lamb to come? gregory: not yet, had the big fight there is policy. she further talked yesterday -- is the pelosi. she further talked yesterday about how we could remove the tax cuts. what do you look at next, pennsylvania? gregory: there is still a long way to go. if we have gdp growth at 3% on labor day with unemployment at three a half -- tom: and a strong dollar as well. gregory: the news is positive. i think it is a question of how that affects transitional voting
6:15 am
in the 2020 elections. it did not really help democrats in 2016 and in expansion mode. francine: when you talk about expansion mode, doesn't mean also the fed may have to raise interest rates more than expected? we had jamie dimon on yesterday of jpmorgan saying he has seen yields at 4%. the ideal would be that it is hard to see why the 10 year yield is going to go to 4%. what could drive the tenure that high is inflation expectations stimulus we have and then already growing economy. francine: do we need to make sure, first of all, that the bond option goes ok today, or is the trajectory of the 10 year yield going towards more? gregory: we've been in this
6:16 am
2.85% toe or less, the 3%. there is real value in the 10 year yield at 3%. i agree that we've had a lot of supply coming in. the yields have backed up, building into concession to make these options go a little better. i think the primary dealers are absorbing more than they have in the past. does thehe u.s. options with the primary dealerships is a lot different than in europe, where you can do syndication. you can't have failed auctions in europe -- you can have failed auctions a europe and the way you don't get them in united states. francine: have we figured out what president trump or the administration want, weak dollar or strong dollar? gregory: one thing they might not be able to control is treasury borrowing needs. the in normandy of the budget deficit is going to start to become an issue. tom: mike allen just published
6:17 am
at ask he is moments ago. is something in common with you, which is a linkage of all these events. washington,ink in iran, and the koreas? what is the linkage there for the president, and frankly for our foreign-policy establishment? gregory: i could even link it with the markets. the one word is volatility. that is the word of the year, and a think it is through on geopolitical things. if north korea really just going to run over -- to roll over and cut a deal after what happened with iran, if we see israelis going into iran? tom: i just got a memo, we need more news this morning.

ecuador, the massive depreciation of the ecuador sucre. in 1999, it all falls apart to a fix. this is the big fear. can you see this coming? james: emerging markets in general are under pressure, partly because of rising u.s. interest rates. if you arepening is like a tiger chasing a gazelle, the first ones you catch are not the fastest. those are the emerging markets being picked on, companies that have fatal flaws. how is it going today? what do you do in em, in blue-chip america you go to cash. what do you do in em? james: try to invest in stocks that have some degree of protection in this type of market. that is the beauty of having
