6:03 am
go billion dollars in transactions laundered through banks and shadow companies by associates of russian president vladimir putin. how much closer fifa ethics were to corrupt practices in originally thought, also some offshore holdings by prime ministers of iceland and pakistan, the king of saudi arabia and the president of ukraine. the documents were leaked by law firm and specializes in helping people set up offshore holdings and according to newspapers, one of the partners said that 95% of our work consists in selling vehicles to avoid taxes. maria. maria: there you go. it's all in the papers this morning. thank you so much. we go to campaign trail. candidates are struggling this morning. ted cruz holding a slight lead over donald trump according to this poll with cruz in the lead

6:05 am
rich, but the very rich are going to end up probably paying more. maria: joining us now fox news contributeor mercedes. >> good morning. maria: what do you make of those comments, i don't like the very rich but i like the workers, putting that aside for a second, in terms of tax plan, did you learn anything new? >> no, not really. he had layed out plan last year and his goal is to attract that middle class and also the blue-collar workers which has been part of his base. he's making it seem, which is very unlike other republican candidates, that the wealthy, the very rich are going to be penalized. that to many republicans out there is an attractive economic plan, despite the criticisms that others have said it's going
6:06 am
to add trillions to the debt. maria, i have to tell you, where trump has been focusing on and where he's been strong has been on economic message and reaching out to the middle class as well as to those that are the blue-collar workers that have felt the impact of many of trade policies in the united states. maria: for sure. the other interview with washington post, he said he was going to eliminate the debt in eight years. $19 trillion in debt wiped away in eight years, is that doable? >> it's doable unless he treats it like casinos in atlantic city. the problem with that united states treasury bonds are collateral for so many financial institutions and for so many transactions. if you renegotiate the value of that collateral, the whole
6:07 am
system collapses. maria: yeah, but -- jon: it's like when the housing market collapsed that was the collateral on all the mortgage bonds and our system collapsed. u.s. treasuries, they're the air that the system breathes on. maria: he's also talking about redoing trade deals, morgan. morgan, right the first thing on my mind the tax plan of renegotiating the debt of where is congress in all of this, it's great to be king but we have a system of checks and balances so none of this stuff is going to happen. the senate is going to approve all of this. he has to work with congress and maybe a democratic-controlled senate. maria: really important point. mercedes, what's your take on debt comment and as well as comparing trump's tax plan to somebody like a ted cruz which is a flat tax, which is very different but cruz also wants to
6:08 am
eliminate loopholes including carried interest. >> that's right, for donald trump his goal is to say it's the art of the deal, i'm going to renegotiate the trade deals with these countries and that's my ticket to reducing or eliminating the national debt. you also have to cut spending and as morgan mentioned, congress is going to play a critical role. donald trump's strength the fact that he's going to say, hey, i'm going in here, i'm going to bring republicans and democrats together and we will make better deals and negotiate better deals. we know with congress it's very slow moving to get anything done. maria: what's your take on the other side hillary clinton getting heat over question. [inaudible] >> i have money from people who work for fossil fuels.
6:09 am
i am so sick of the sanders' campaign lying about me. i'm sick of it. maria: clinton responding to criticism on meet the press. first take on that exchange, mercedes? >> when clinton is a bit unscripted she comes harsh and to sanders' point has been fund raising capability. he's been able to attract small donors. i mean, he raised $44 million in the last quarter. this is a candidate that's still the clintons are saying, he can't get the nomination. with that being said, hillary clinton where is she getting her money, from corporations, from wall street and that's a narrative that's been told in states in democratic race. maria: she reacted on meet the press yesterday. listen to this. >> they are misrepresenting my record. i feel sorry sometimes for the young people who, you know, believe this and they don't do their own research and i'm glad
6:10 am
that we now can point to reliable independent analysis to say, no, it's just not true. maria: jon, morgan, your thoughts? jon: i like seeing candidates unscripted with the veil and smile, good for her for speaking up. morgan: this is the effect that bernie sander has had not only democratic side but republican side. getting ready of carried interest. this has changed not only democratic side but republican side. jon: that's a really important point when carried interest is being shut aside by both leading republican contenders. morgan: and ted cruz. maria: that's going away.omment. >> well, you know, i think right now we are looking to see what's going to happen in wisconsin, wisconsin is going to be sort of
6:11 am
the fire wall against trump, but trump has an advantage going into these other states in the upcoming weeks. so that's what we are looking closely at is tomorrow's race, which is hoping to at least put a fire wall in terms of donald trump. maria: tomorrow is wisconsin, two weeks later you have new york, connecticut, pennsylvania and then, of course, california. mercedes good to see you. we will see you soon, mercedes. make sure you tune in for fox business for wisconsin primary tomorrow night. we have breaking news, we want to get you right away, alaska airlines, it is confirmed will acquire virgin america. deal $4 billion. fifty-seven dollars a share, virgin america shares, take a look at the stock this morning. later this hour we will talk and hear from donald trump from gretta's interview how he looks at merger and what he's
6:12 am
expecting mergers. straight ahead another train derailment outside of philadelphia. details coming next. blue origin, successfully launched and landed rocket, the stunning video of the picture-perfect landing, back in a minute, next. but you don't sweat it because you and your advisor have prepared for this. and when the best offer means you're moving to the middle of nowhere, the boys say they hate the idea. but you pretend it's not so bad.
6:13 am
and years later at thanksgiving, when one of them says what he's thankful for most, is this house, you realize you didn't plan for any of this you wouldn't have done it any other way. with the right financial partner, progress is possible. help individualize our cancer treatment? now through advanced genomic testing, we may be able to pinpoint and diagnose what makes your cancer different, which can reveal precise treatment options that were not considered previously. with this important breakthrough at the intersection of science and technology, we've arrived at precision cancer treatment. the evolution of cancer care is here at cancer treatment centers of america. call or visit cancercenter.com to learn more about precision cancer treatment.
6:14 am
6:15 am
>> maria: welcome back, deadly amtrak derailment leaves two people dead. cheryl casone with the details. cheryl: investigators continue to look into multiple factors that may have caused derailment from train traveling to savannah , georgia. the train was carrying about 2040 passengers, one of them forbes media chairman steve forbes, he is going to be joining you, maria, this morning. glad he's okay. meanwhile today strong winds and winter weather are causing
6:16 am
massive damage across parts of the united states. winds reaching 55 miles per hour knocking down power lines and killing at least two people and leaving more than 19,000 customers without power. and amazon founder and ceo jeff, blue origin successfully launching rocket in atmosphere before safely landing it. this happened over the weekend. this is the third time in four times that mr. besos has completed a launch in west texas. maria: and why is that? it's amazing how perfect the amazon launch has been? cheryl: maybe that's part of it, i don't know. maria: billionaire's race going on in space, jon. who is winning? jon: i think it's the private
6:17 am
sector. that is what happens when the public sector retreats from the economy. we have space shuttles that nasa was doing all of this work many years ago. they retreated and now we see the private sector stepping in and doing their own rocket launch. cheryl: so much for nasa. there's a lot of talk about get to go mars sooner than later. look at richard branson and what he has done. we are all going to space. jon: only the government could handle. only the government had the resources to do technology or launches like this. we are seeing with a lot of resources going into it. maria: it's a good story to see this kind of innovation. today the news of the day obviously is that he is selling virgin america to alaska air, it was some -- there was some speculation about competition between jetblue and alaska air, obviously alaska air wins this. cheryl: he was ahead of this, he moved the stock on this news and he was right, the bidding war began, looks like it's over now.
6:18 am
it's going to be regulatory issues potentially with this, but overall the deals lock solid jon: in addition to airlines, i'm looking at hotels, the starwood deal is fascinating. we had the chinese company looking to get in to buy starwood and they are now backed down. maria: give us your take away on that? jon: journal has a big story on this today, i'm trying to understand what's going on, what we are seeing in china is firms trying to get their money out, individuals trying to get their money out. there's downward pressure on currency. if you flip that paper over, we have a big story. i think the chinese authorities are getting concerned about the money flowing out of the country, all right, step away from this deal, we don't want to be a part of that. maria: that's what it's a part.
6:19 am
don't forget driverlessars. a new partnership to create new technology that among things will automatically sense your presence. adjust seating when arms are full. the nfl will not like this, facebook is refuse to go update status when it comes to streaming nfl games. back in a minute.

6:22 am
6:23 am
maria: welcome back. toyota announcing partnership, toyota connected, new car technology, think one car using the cloud to talk to another car miles away, how about sensing your presence and opening doors automatically specially when your hands are full. i want to bring in zach hicks, toyota connected, zach, good to see you, thank you so much for joining us. >> good morning, maria. thanks for having me. maria: this entire story is fascinating to me because it feels like auto makers are going through a massive new revolution with technology. >> we are partnering with microsoft and focused on data science and data analytics and creating cutting-edge services
6:24 am
as well as government agencies as well, and internally we are on every aspect of titta -- toyota from design and what's happening in the car and knowing about you and your preference and making it less confusing and turning it more human. i can give you an example of that, the next time you say i'm hungry, you can ask the car, hey, a great new mexican restaurant down the street and table at 7:00 o'clock, you want me to book it. maria: that's unbelievable. the convenience is obviously. if you're talking about your car becoming this whole new place where all my data and personal information is, it's almost like my car becomes my phone. how do you protect that kind of
6:25 am
data? >> yeah, that's a great question, maria. that's one of the key reasons why we are partnering with microsoft. i don't think any company can go alone on something this big and that important, we are partnering with the whole auto industry as we form the auto isack. maria: jon hilsenrath. jon: how far are we from the cars driving themselveses? >> that's certainly in the future. i don't see them necessarily overnight. toyota is on the road. but we are seeing many driving today, so today in many of the vehicles if you're driving traffic stop and accelerating we are going to take the action and bring you to a safe stop. i'm sorry? jon: will grandchildren be sitting in cars that drive themselves? >> i think so too. people like freedom.
6:26 am
i think you will see both. if you want to be able to do other things in the car, you may not have to worry about driving. if you want that great experience -- maria: morgan. morgan: i'm curious how the regulators impact all of this. these cars are producing tens of millions of minds of code and regulators are old school and seem to be behind you, toyota and other companies. how does regulation play into this? how do regulators keep up with what you're doing which is innovative and interesting? >> technology is always ahead of legislation and we get that, i think through our partnerships and partnering with the government and other country's governments, we can't do this alone. it really is an ecosystem where we need to partner together. we want their partnership. maria: are most of the cars made
6:27 am
in the u.s. or in japan, zach? >> well, we make about over 70% of the vehicles here in the u.s. are made here in the u.s., but we try to produce vehicles locally wherever we sell cars. maria: got you. thank you so much. we will be watching. really exciting things for toyota. we will be watching. facebook withdraws bid. find out why the social media giant decided not to play ball after all. world war ii veteran awarded five medals for service 70 years after returning from the war, we will tell you why it took so long to receive the honor. just an amazing story, coming up back in a minute.

..
6:29 am
6:30 am
into monday morning and maria bartiromo. it is monday from april 1st. 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. candidates fighting for every last vote going into tomorrow. avenue bush for john kasich to get out of the race. he sat looking ahead for that convention. >> i think he hurts me more than they hurt cruz. he's got one win and 29 nonsense initiative in the unit. >> is possible for republicans to throw the election away. nominated donald trump would do that. >> kids will spend less time
6:31 am
focusing on deeper and kardashian and in more unhealthy of the presidents. maria: merger monday. consolidation to the airline industry. alaska airlines need a job live to acquire virgin america. valued at $4 billion. breaking news this morning. racking up nearly $10 billion in model three orders. elon musk traded that the company received orders at the low price again. i'm to america to expect in a higher broader averages. indicating the dow jones industrial average. onto the campaign trail to go. it is in its final hours. the latest polling shows that presumably in the buckeye state. tromsø on top when it comes to delegates heading into tuesday's primary. truck making a parents, given a
6:32 am
second back to his controversial pro-life comments and put her battle with ted cruz and his wife. >> do you agree it was a mistake? >> is a hypothetical question, i would've rather they entered it in a different matter. >> wasn't worth you to spend it? >> if i had to do it again i would miss scented. i didn't think it was particularly bad, but i probably wouldn't have sent it. maria: republican strategist roger stone. thank you for joining us. >> good to be here. maria: you try to walk back about heidi cruise, which is very unflattering. as the sole pressure from the women vote? >> he has to retool little bit in the core issues that have gotten to where he is. the whole cul-de-sac was probably not an official to anybody. it's not about bias.
6:33 am
it's about the future of the country, the economy, a coherent foreign policy address in their trade balances. that's what he needs to keep talking about. maria: a lot of discussion about comments related to the economy. one of the comments he made was he believes he can eliminate the bad, cut the country's debt within eight years come in $18 trillion obviously. we are going to see a massive recession and it's a dangerous time to invest in the stock market. when you think about those comments? >> it's about the trump economy. china would be far more effect if the terrorists actually. he is an across-the-board tax cut, and aggressive when for bringing $2 trillion back into the country for taxation. he would be the first president in modern times not beholden to any special interest or lobby group and therefore he might actually try to cut federal and
6:34 am
income is something no president has done in his lifetime. george w. bush massively wasted. >> have you eliminate $19 million of debt in eight years? >> i'm a political strategist. i would like to have someone who tries to cut the federal deficit. we haven't had effort. >> they come in and say they are going to wind up with more debt. maria and i have been trying to understand. have you get from it initially and zero in an economy that grows. maria: you've got to cut spending. we know that the spending is. there's growth isn't going to get you there. >> you need a combination of growth in real spending discipline which have not had in recent history. discipline in this environment means entitlement spending. go out until retirees are not going to get your social security. maria: maybe that's what it
6:35 am
takes. >> $1 trillion in my bank accounts now. $1 trillion in budget funds. every previous has the money. before we go cutting entitlements with trump is adamantly opposed to. maria: it's interesting he's predicting recession even that the fears have really receded. a big march for the stock market ms reverse. >> one of the things you'll need to learn and you could help him is what he said and what the president said carries a lot of weight in the economy and stock market. it's a little bit dangerous. your words carry some sort like you to be more careful about that. i'd like to ask you about the politics. i think it was quite interesting
6:36 am
links previous thread delegates will go into the convention to be the ones basically make in the rules. what happens to the other delegates ever be a comic jab, walker, what happens to those delegates because it looks like trump will be fighting to get the 1237. >> with another makeup that the rules are credentials committee and they could be ratified by the faux convention could be more important than the first ballot vote. as there was in 1952 is barefoot bay. you've also have trojan horse delicate than the state to vote for donald tram. the texas party has filled the streets with long-term
6:37 am
supporters. there is a danger there. the other point is we have an inconsistency in the party rules. there's a rule today that you have to have your name put in nomination coming up marker would be number of delicate, 100 plus pledge to the date on trends stay. how did they vote for him if his name is not in nomination? the whole committee has to figure that out. >> trump should have a majority of delicate based on how many contests is one. >> it actually does some work that way. each state produces two members for the rules committee usually affected by the delegation, but in some states by the state committee. >> does the trump campaign need to get smarter about understanding the rules? >> that any question they brought in milk partner. he's the single best convention
6:38 am
strategist and organizer. at work over is a solid veteran of the process. yes they are playing catch-up because the trump campaign strategy devised by trump himself has been communication space. now they have to shift quickly to an organizational base strategy to clean up the rest. maria: two questions on the heels of that. taking both the delegates for me. he wants them to get out of the race. the same story keeps coming back. donald trump threatened a third-party run if he does not secure republican nomination. rnc chairman lance previous responded to that. >> he wants to get to the convention. and nancy want be president. you shouldn't be littering up the process because that's what he's doing. maria:.of course was that john kasich commentary. and then we have got this. listen to this. >> i just want to be treated -- it's not a question of win or
6:39 am
lose. it's a question of treatment. i want to be treated fair. >> at the candidate is willing to commit to the principles and values of our party, then they ought to just tell us. if they commit to it, they should do it. maria: what about that? he keeps going back and forth about the third-party run. >> you are already late. i was involved in getting him on the ballot in 48 states and that's what the party. there is no third party to nominate another candidate so you would have to run as an independent. that is an even more uphill fight. that is a $50 million endeavor. >> is in the constitution party on every ballot? >> are on the ballot in about 12 days. only 12. libertarians are in the states. i think it's funny integrated 13 or 14. maria: i think i hear you saying -- >> i think it's going to be the
6:40 am
republican nominee. it will be trump on the first ballot or paul ryan on the fourth. maria: wow, paul ran on the fourth. maria: he said very clearly this weekend is going to be someone who's running. not paul ryan. >> he doesn't control the delegates. my guess is john kasich hopes it will be john kasich, but it will be trump on the first. maria: great stuff. thanks for joining us good roger stone. turning to fox business beginning at 7:00 p.m. eastern time eight )-right-paren the fox as if that were. take a short break and a race for anna foster writes his name at good while they are no longer looking to have the right. a police chase on the san francisco bay rage. to track down nature wildlife. the details are next.

6:52 am
the focus on the federal reserve in the path of future interest rate and where that will have been. today we get the durable goods orders report out. that happens in his typically a market mover. we spoke with fomc voting member of the meta-masher on friday. she taught about the fed and gradualism. >> we don't have to meet until april and i want to see data coming in. my best guess at this point is the economy will evolve in a way that will entail bringing interest rates up gradually sometime this year. when it is, how many i can't tell you at this point. i can tell you i anticipate the economic development will entail to continue on the gradual year. maria: you wonder if the site in central banks in general become less relevant. join us down as raymond james, chief investment strategist. gentlemen, good to see you.
6:53 am
thank you for joining us. let's talk about the sentiment backdrop. gradualism is why to you, while the rest of us just saying this to increases by the federal reserve this year? >> i came into the year thinking i'd be shocked if there are any more than to increases. right now i don't think there's an increase until after the election. maria: after the election because the fed does the on again involved an election. you've got to them. that's one possibility. september right before the election. >> the fed would refer not to do anything, but they will certainly change policy is necessary. in terms the right of master's comment about april or possibly june, first-quarter gdp according to the appendicitis six tenths six tenths of 1%. corporate earnings for the first quarter looks like it's going to
6:54 am
be down 5% to 10%. it's inconceivable to me they could tighten policy given those numbers and probably chew may be too rarely. our best guess to be one or two hikes may be, but certainly the back half of the year. >> you're putting together a backdrop of the economy that looks like its growth,, but his slow growth. donald trump says we are going into recession. that's not what the deal is. >> you are showing s&p 500 members. the market is coming back. with the market is telling you is a very slow growing economy and that's what the fed's expectation is. if donald trump negotiates $19 trillion worth of debt we probably are going back into recession. i want to push back at one point that the fed doesn't want to do anything before the election. if you look at the way they behave in the past come in 2012 they started moving towards ending their kiwi program in 2012. in 2008 day about them in others to read right before an election. 2004 they started raising
6:55 am
interest rates before an election. i think they see the economy moving in the way they expect. you raise a really important point is every going to get the numbers they want the 0.6% growth in the first quarter. we've been through this almost every year. they are going to be saying baby will be heading into a slowdown. >> to some degree there's some seasonality. they were supposed to fix that a year ago. this question as as to whether they did. you get a first quarter and the numbers start to come out. if we can get a better set of data, corporate earnings and economic growth, diapering september into play and i agree with john. i don't think the fed will not do anything because of the election. if the data is there for mr. ripley a hike -- >> i will tell you what matters more than the presidential election and that is the u.k. voting on whether to stay again. if they are worried about financial turmoil, financial
6:56 am

7:04 am
figure out who the main players are. 140 big players here. maria: the king of saudi arabia and the crowd prints around this. they really don't know exactly what the government does with their money or how the princes spend it. that is interesting to me as a former treasury analyst at my head was spinning because not only is there a lot of information so everybody involved, fbi, treasury committee hs will be going to these. because it's 40 years back, i think the historical record even if it's not for a current investigation as an analyst whenever people from the u.s. government go through this, they will be able to see the benefits of the sources. double provides much information from an analytical perspective on how things were done in the past. >> you think there's a lot in here that the u.s. investigators didn't know. have they been lucky not to sing along or is there a lot of
7:05 am
material a lot of material that went missing before? >> that's really interesting question. they have a lot of access to information. if you have an investigator at fbi is looking at a money laundry case, the information will be incredibly helpful for some current cases though for how we track -- >> taxation office is investigating more than 800 bucks just to add these dealings with the firm. we see this play out. >> some of the banks are involved in this. maria: thank undo the campaign trail. republican presidential candidates making a final pitch to voters in wisconsin but may be a pivotal state. blake burman in wisconsin with the latest. good morning to you, blake. reporter: good morning to you from badger's territory big country madison, wisconsin you can see behind me. tomorrow night could be a very big night for said cruz pick the latest polling in wisconsin
7:06 am
shows he still has the lead. the poll comes from cbs news over the weekend and have them up six points over donald trump pier 43-37. that is on the fox business poll that had cruz hilsenrath just the other day. all three candidates, cruz, trump and john kasich would be a part of town hall on the fox news channel in wisconsin tonight. trump had one last night with credit in which he defended his talk of trying to restructure nato. >> all of a sudden they never thought of it that way because of not focus on terrorism which is a big album we have now. we have to go to japan and germany and saudi arabia are they have money like nobody's ever seen money before. we defend all these countries. we are not properly members for the kind of money we're spending. we are spending so much money. we are like a policeman to the
7:07 am
world. reporter: 42 delegates inside wisconsin tomorrow night. as for the delegate count, donald trump holding commanding lead as he tries to nail down 1237 before the convention. more delegates than ted cruz and john kasich combined. yesterday north dakota held its state convention. it is a very unique process over there. essentially they chose 25 delegates that will represent north dakota at the national convention. the cruz campaign declaring victory yesterday that the trump campaign saying that is nothing more than been. 25 delegates are essentially free agents. back to you. maria: thanks so much. blake burman and wisconsin this morning. joining us now is newt gingrich supervisor, of the -- how are you feeling going into wisconsin? talk to us how you think this plays out and how important wisconsin is overall for the gop
7:08 am
nomination. >> well, as they gestured in the report, obviously trump is down 10 points to ted cruz and dan six points on the cbs poll. if trump does the wind, wisconsin would fall just short in their projections of summing up the nomination before the convention. but i believe trump has just had the worst week of his campaign. almost exactly eight years ago, barack obama had the worst week in his campaign because that is when the jeremiah wright controversy exploded in a cast that off with this famous speech about race. now he had a lot of help from the elite media that donald trump is not going to get. the upshot is obama eight years ago managed to worst week of his campaign and went on to the nomination to be elected. if donald trump can do that, he will be well on his way as well. he's got new york, pennsylvania, california coming up.
7:09 am
he should do very well in those states. he's very well-positioned. the only thing donald trump needs to do is decided he wants to win. i think he's decided that. i can't tell him what he wants to do other than go on megyn kelly. i think he told maureen dowd and has called saturday that he should probably do that. that's the only thing i would recommend is to try and get on the megyn kelly show. other than that, he will know what to do. if he wants to win, one thing we've learned is you can learn any can't progress. maria: it sounds like you don't they wisconsin matters saw that much. we know his liking in wisconsin. >> good morning. good to see you. i haven't seen you since new hampshire. i disagree with you on wisconsin i think it's incredibly important for the ted cruz campaign for them to do well in when they can wisconsin. the way of i'm looking at the delegate math, i think it
7:10 am
difficult for trump to get to 1237. if wisconsin goes the way we think before the convention. if that happens with fahey guest at 1237 but doesn't get there, what do you think happens to the voters at a convention. that convention. that's a cruz gets the nomination. he trump voters go away? similarly trumped up the nomination, what about 50%, 60% of the party to feel comfortable voting for him? i see a huge party split here. i don't see how you put humpty dumpty back together again. am i wrong? >> i do agree wisconsin is a must win for ted cruz. i think trump could survive losing it, but it's cruz went back and say momentum on the democratic side. her defenders up in the polls and if he wins, that gives him tremendous momentum from new york and he could beat hillary in her adopted home state.
7:11 am
it's a very important primary. but i will say is i believe contrary to what we hear from pundits, the idea we have a contested convention is borderline fantasy. to say that because people are looking at 2016 but not taking about who the delegates are of the republican party. many are elected officials for state candidates. in 2018 if we thought the 2010 tea party way was a big deal, you will have a two party afterwards in 2018 if you have delegates have been a donald trump or any before the convention. if these are 100 delegates, as donald trump would say, he is going to make deals and frankly you will see in my opinion these delegates of the republican party of so-called elites are not going to have the stomach to take us to the convention and allow a free-for-all. i don't think that's going to
7:12 am
happen. i think trump also it up if that happens when i don't think the party will be divided provided we don't have any behind-the-scenes shenanigans of the kind of stuff they're talking about for north dakota has unbound delegates. maria: that make it show on hilsenrath from "the wall street journal." >> what does he need to do to correct course at this point? obama gave a speech to adjust the racial issue. what issues to stumble trump made to address to turn things around? >> he needs to talk about the issues that got him where his days, which is trade. what a coincidence that the first time in a century we started running trade deficits. the wall street lucre, the wall street bankers were luxuriating and they punted into the cbo housing market.
7:13 am
this is all connected. he needs to talk about the trade issue, the wall street issue, borders, national security. they are talking about nato. what he is talking about word and sharing. if japan and south korea simply spout 1% more of gdp on their own defense, that would be about $200 billion. that's a third of our defense budget. but donald trump is talking about is not crazy. it's entirely real estate. it's crucial going forward. he needs to talk about the issues that got him where he is. he did a great job talking to "the new york times." he did a great job on fox news sunday. he has been somewhat contrite. he submitted his not perfect that he can make mistakes. it's kind of like if you buy tesla and take it home to your spouse and show her, look how fast this goes in u.k. two

8:06 am
from donald trump there, that are pretty serious comments number one he says, that we are going to see massive recession, said stock market is not safe because we are in a bubble going to see a huge sell-off he also said able to turn around the debt story, eliminate 19 trillion dollars in did he go to over 8 years what is your take on all this governor? >> well, certainly, senator cruz has put a plan together that will get this country back on track, when he -- you talk about that -- flat tax, when you talk about allowing people to get away from the regulator restraint they have seen at irs -- allowing, those dollars that are offshore to come back, and not be taxed at some incredible rate growing out of economic mess the way to do i it, plus obviously reducing size of government i have not looked at donald trump's plan you know i don't
8:07 am
whether numbers mesh or not but, having been the governor of the state that unquestionably, led the mason in job creation, wealth creation over the course of the last 14, 15 years, we know how to do this, senator cruz' plan, does follow a blueprint i will suggest future of this country can be bright and i think going out and trying to scare americans, that you know, the end is in sight, woe is america economically is not necessarily a -- a way to run a campaign. from my perspective, i think you know people are looking for hope, with a good future not this dire prediction, that everything is going to hell in a hand bag. >> very fair point why we are discussing these comments, this morning, from trump, but
8:08 am
when it comes to ted cruz, governor, the issue here, is people are questioning whether or not he can beat hillary clinton, so, you have on one side, donald trump, about who obviously has his support, and on the other, john kasich but looking at ted cruz himself, people i mean from a gop standpoint, does he have personality a sentiment widespread support to actually about beat hillary clinton in the general election? >> well, let's say that -- senator cruz does in fact get the 1237 delegates that are needed that may probably will occur. in a contested convention i don't see either one of these accounts getting to that fath from my perspective but when you go into that convention and either donald trump or ted cruz, you know i don't think kasich is going to reply a role in this from my perspective, but i think, i
8:09 am
think -- i think senator cruz has the savvy has the ability, to come out of a contested convention with nomination at that particular point in time his ybt elect his wife heidi a keen effort between, the senator and his wife, when it comes to being able to reach out to i mean, donald trump has a woman problem let's face it he has a problem with minorities. heidi and ted both i think are going to be very, very cable general election candidacy to not only bring this country together, but to bring a lot of people that are for donald trump today because they are looking for an anti-washington outsider ted cruz is. >> governor remember get morgan in quick. >> good morning governor the way i ins the convention on first biologicalot jeb and

8:11 am
dives discome for the totive republicans when you think pennsylvania they talk about peninsula 160,000 people that changed from democrat to the republican side, and. >> or another that is the proof donald trump who is going to be bring in -- >> listen, i think when you look at ted cruz, when you look at his plan for this country when you see and you know that he is a consistent anti-washington outsider, that those trump people should be fairly comfortable that they are going to get what they want and that somebody, to break up this cartel whatever you want to refer to it in washington, d.c., that there is you know, there is really somebody out there, that is going to not be business as usual, but will put a conservative a consistent skrv
8:12 am
on supreme court. >> that ma it is to skrvz and rnz that is the point, does it matter, in a different way to those people that trump is bringing in, let me ask you this governor perry i want to look at video things got haetdz outside of trump rally in west ellis wisconsin last night required police to step in, the scuffle started after a group of protesters brought in an american flag and trampled on it, the group has done this at other rallies, look at this person trampling on the flag, what is your reaction to this governor? >> makes you mad as hell what it the reaction. but we know they are trying bait people into doing things that make a -- a film clip a video clip, that can show, that there is all this you know discomfort raucous nature going on at these rallies my hope and goal don't take the bait if is one wants to be a
8:13 am
fool do something like that that is on them not on us, and, so, yeah, we're mad as hell when we see people do that great symbol of america. >> i got to ask you about what we learned about your voting i know you are supporter of ted cruz we've got reports you did not vote in texas primary did you vote for cruz. >> -- you better believe i voted for cruz i voted for a wholly host of other people, and united states portfolio service is the one i am mad at, so, you know i our runoff is going to be i believe in may, so not only i am probably not going to use the early voting process, until i get comfortable that it is going to get to my little county of fayette county texas, so i talked to my voting registrar individual that oversees that i went down personally to register there, put in my application, for my voting by mail, i got it i filled out

them we don't know where the money is. the journal article over the somalian money transfers taking hundreds of thousands of dollars overseas to divide every month. per is the money going? >> does the fbi need to be one step ahead of criminals? what about the argument this is prudent for the financial system not to have a list of transactions going through. i see that as a good thing for the formal financial sector not to have the money going through it. >> that's why we're not doing it at all. the real problem for bsa patriot act issues, the bank secrecy act in florida, for instance, it is homegrown mom and pop businesses of americans that we've closed down in our banks that have nothing to do with any terrorist nation or terrorist region. >> .selig about policy of a bank, not the government's problem. >> two different things here because we are trying to follow the money story, but we also follow the story of guantánamo bay closing.
8:36 am
there is a big debate as far as we don't know where inmates are going to end up. a lot don't want them. >> that is true. gehman wants them back, but there's really not a country for them to go back to the configure them will make up there. they've gone to dozens and dozens of countries at the director of national intelligence says about 30% have gone back to terrorist act davida. the number is higher. some number of these guys are finance guys. these guys know how to push money around. they take basically money from people who take control and keep taking money. because our treasury department, at the eye another folks have been successful in cutting off a good bit of my devices, they shape people down for more money.
8:37 am
treated to the gitmo transfers are happening this week. you think guantánamo bay will be closed down ultimately. >> i don't know when it will be closed. the detention measure will close down whether on this administration's watch for the next administration's watch. the fact is we are still at war. we are in a state of conflict and you can detain the enemy. so if that war continues, we will have to continue to kill and capture detainees. where you put them, i don't know. >> is this going to do the same thing happening with the money driving people we are detaining offshore into the hands of third-party governments who are going to mistreat even more than we did in guantánamo. >> yeah. that is the million dollar question. that is a great point. if we stop getting in the business of capturing and detaining people, which we are doing on a grand scale like we used to or we are transferring people, hold them for a period
8:38 am
of time and let them go to other countries at the very spotty human rights record. we are essentially transferring the risk of not only holding these guys, but lowering the bar in terms of the human rights standards to treat other people. it just not a good team. maria: we will leave it there. alex sanchez, florida bankers association, do you have a candidate at their list of donald trump? >> obviously we had two of our homes as far as in the campaign jab? or rubio. let's talk about that another day. >> is coming back down. they have been stronger and smarter this time because no more 10%, 5% down. most of these transactions have been 40%, 50% down to make sure

buying condos do not walk away and they have skin in the game. >> you promise we won't have another bubble? maria: would not be nice if we could make a promise? alex sanchez, good to see you. someone from the thank you very much. next, steve forbes is with us in studio after being on the amtrak trail that derailed yesterday. we will get his take on the white house race and also his worst hand account. be right back.

maria: welcome back to investigators looking into what caused yesterday's derailment of the amtrak train, which was traveling from europe to savanna, georgia. that left two people dead, 35 others injured. steve forbes is on the amtrak train that derailed yesterday. thank you for joining us. we are glad you are okay. you are not impacted physically. >> right. our prayers go out to the families of the two workers killed in those two injured.
8:43 am
maria: what happened from your standpoint? >> fortunately i was in the last car of the train between philadelphia and wilmington going into wilmington and suddenly felt a sudden halt like somebody in a car hitting the brakes and leasing have been hitting the brakes. you knew this was not a normal slowdown. they came to a screeching halt at the coffee was in the air. other than not, we weren't impacted. there's the smell of rubber like the brakes were burning. that went away so we just decided what to do. we would not get off a potential life track. a half-hour before somebody came back and said first responders came in about half an hour instead is anyone injured. they are obviously working on the two cars. maria: or 30 minutes you are basically in the dark waiting for somebody tell you something and all you had with the feeling that you hit something. >> yes. an explosion and then coming to
8:44 am
a screeching halt. and then nothing. >> it looks like in these pictures, video of some of these cars going off track. did you have any feel about? or were you kind of study? >> we didn't have that feeling feeling -- maria: didn't feel like you were on track or off track? did you at some point now you derailed? >> in our card, no. we were on the track to a little tilt, but nothing that would suggest you are about to fall over or anything. >> we would get all the details and more in the investigation, but it is still shocking to me that it still happened a train was able to head. i find amtrak after the other derailment that put an early warning systems. >> they've apparently done so so
8:45 am
you don't get trains crashing into each other head-on. there's apparently no system for construction workers to talk somebody who could say a train is coming in next minutes, get off the track. >> to crash in his book was a doing right there. >> on a plane they have backup systems. the main system goes, why wasn't there a back of pa system so you can tell people. we knew better not to try to get off the train, but say something happens, stay calm, we'll be tending to it. maria: how did amtrak do with it? how was the amtrak response? >> other than the lack of information, the first responders were terrific and they came on after a half-hour they asked who was heard in 20 minute later he said you get off the train and there are plenty of them there helping you get down. we weren't olympic athletes so you didn't have the normal platform there. you had to cross a field in the
8:46 am
little work and they were there to help you at the first responders were excellent. the local church in the gymnasium did a good job. they got the coffee there. the response was good. the first responders on the local town. a little town called trainer, pennsylvania. maria: thank god you're okay, steve. tell us where we are in terms of the presidential election. have things changed in the last couple weeks? >> yes, senator cruz and donald trump. both have to ramp up again come a step their game. donald trump when he made the statements about nato and south korea and japan getting nuclear weapons, you don't do with the state senate campaign. if you make a big policy suggestions can you do it in a formal speech. you show people you thought the thing through. the shocker in the abortion was not just an answer. 10 months into the campaign and the republican primary you have the answer down.
8:47 am
>> aegis of the rich people are going to pay more and higher carried interest charges. >> well again, he's got a flat tax plan. maria: do like ted cruz better. >> yes. it depends how you do it. if you do it by getting rid of production and lower rates across the board, there's something to be sad. maria: he hasn't been clear on how he did it. >> not at this stage in the campaign. maria: that the high order. >> ted cruz is beginning to do with the substance. he cannot just be an ted cruz and went in the northeast. he's got to lead with a powerful message and people look at the message. maria: steve, great analysis. we are so happy you're okay. from rags to riches, how some athletes are trying to start trash. after blowing millions on their
