6:00 am
5 days ago. donald trump beefed up his campaign staff ahead of a contested convention. he is railing against the system. not everybody is having it. >> i am funding my own campaign. >> donald has been yelling and screaming and stomping his foot. an awful lot of wine. >> corey lewandowski will not be prosecuted for battery after you alleged incident. a new conference later today. new criticism of the tsa from american airlines. the company is warning people
6:01 am
may be missing their flights because of the tsa's performance. one of the best examples of government waste on treadmills, we will look at the congressional pig book. the golden state warriors winning their 73rd game of the season setting a new record for the most games won in a single season and an end of an era in los angeles, kobe bryant going out with a bang scoring 60 points, all the highlights coming up. we are on it. jpmorgan set the tone yesterday with better-than-expected numbers, futures looking at a possible pullback. big rally in stocks. in asia gained across the board on the heels of that triple digit move for us stocks. the nikkei and japan up 3-numfour%. european stocks today, the s&p
6:02 am
down a fraction. 25 points hire, although stories coming up in the program, dagan mcdowell and michael bloch, good to see you, you are just back from rome and we want to hear about it. maria: chris collins is with us, the chairman of donald trump's presidential campaign, retired general and fox news military analyst jack keane with us and to have a smiley stops by and ron paul coming up as well. you don't want to miss it. as for battle for new york heating up, presidential hopefuls on both sides of the spectrum hitting the republican front-runner donald trump. >> donald is unhappy about this. he has been yelling and screaming and stomping his foot and an awful lot of whining and the simple reality is anytime
6:03 am
the people vote against donald he screams the voters are stealing the election. that is actually how elections work, the voters choose. maria: the front runner for the front -- the nomination was asked in a television interview, david duke and other white supremacists supporting the campaign he played coy, the same donald trump who led the insidious birther movement to delegitimize resident obama, called mexican immigrants, rapists and murderers, wants to ban muslims from entering the united states and the list goes on. >> this campaign is about the
6:04 am
understanding when we stand together and asian americans. when we do not allow donald trump to divide us there is nothing we cannot accomplish. maria: despite the push back donald trump standing by his opinion blasting the republican party's corrupt system at townhall with sean hannity last night. >> politicians, i am funding my own campaign. joining us fox news contributor with us this morning, good to see you. what is your take on all this? he continues on the system is corrupt. >> a couple things are happening. the trump campaign did not understand this entire system. hillary clinton did not understand it in 2008, barack
6:05 am
obama did. he worked it and got the nomination. it was remarkable because to a degree he has benefited from this process far more than he has been hurt. if you are in a winner take all state, he has taken these delegates. trump is coming dangerously close to undermining his frontrunner status come he remains the front runner but by talking like this i think he has anticipated falling short of what he said he was going to get. maria: he is connecting with people who look at the system and people in the states, not really republican national committee problem, people within the states who are diehard republicans, not just colorado but feel they don't have a voice, the way the party leadership has set up these rules state-by-state, it is foul and flawed, if he can connect with those people who might not
6:06 am
have been trump supporters -- >> you are right on the fairness point. it is somehow unfair. he has not had a lot of primary wins lately, something that animates the populist diaspora in the republican party, let's talk about fairness. on the democratic side superdelegates are party elders, party official. on the republican side when talking about delegates you are talking about activists, people being hand selected. maria: the rules have been in place a long time and most people lose rules. >> like playing games, it is not all fundamentals but it seems like trump is playing this game, and has twisted the knife a
6:07 am
little bit. then it gets me, the whole thing is rigged. colorado and this process why is it allowed to happen. to undermine hillary, and closer to the nomination no matter what. as far as i am concerned -- maria: trump's pressure. we are viewing in on this. and i said last night, he takes lemons and makes great alcohol, delicious -- it is better than lemonade. >> he doesn't do anything without doing it deliberately. he knows the system, figured it out. and pretty much flipping the
6:08 am
card table over. maria: he is not going to be prosecuted. it will be announced this afternoon by palm beach county, what are your thoughts on this? >> it was an unfortunate incident, and required a prosecutor. maria: looking at the video. it is a rough-and-tumble trail. i think corey lewandowski should have apologized immediately, and to have created this kind of criminal element around misconduct, it was a stretch too far and shows the problem with the trump campaign but no humility, no contrition, no moment of saying we may have done something wrong. dagen: if that is not the national image, and people who watch us and follow on twitter,
6:09 am
we reported this news about corey lewandowski the way we reported the initial move and legal move, they will not be charged. on both sides of it. >> i was never a fan of the pilon created as a result. both sides are not completely in the right, and it was a right outcome and don't prosecute a guy, i have been there. sometimes you do things spur of the moment. bernie sanders and hillary clinton joining the picket lines, verizon workers, speaking in support of the workers who are striking against verizon in new york city.
6:10 am
>> just a poster child, so many corporations are doing today. in this campaign, sending a message to corporate america, you cannot have it all. maria: >> engage in real stations. this has been going on for months and to come to the table and reach an agreement, workers here, i know from that in my senate years still workers and deserve to have a fair contract. maria: throw the fuel on the fire. mc adam issued a stern response, calling sanders views uninformed and just plain wrong, goes on to say our financial statements show we have paid more than $15.6 billion in taxes the last two years, 35% tax rate in 2015 for anyone counting.
6:11 am
according to mrs. clinton's tax records she was paid 2 $25,000 for speech she gave in 2013. she has that and here she is on the verizon picket line. >> the inauthenticity of her message is being revealed, why bernie sanders won eight of the last tween 9, no one is buying hillary clinton as champion of the worker. you can have your misgivings about bernie sanders, has a deep-seated belief and knows how to articulate it in a way that is genuine and authentic but bernie sanders has been successful, he wrote a letter to treasury secretary jack lew against the merger between pfizer and allegan, guess what happened two weeks ago? they changed regulations to make it impossible for that merger to happen.
6:12 am
bernie sanders has his finger on this populist progressive part and hillary is tone deaf. for anyone who doesn't think his candidacy whether he wins the nomination or not is not going to have an adverse impact on her level of enthusiasm among his base is not analyzing this properly. dagen: what about adverse impact on business? kudos to mc adams for stepping up and calling out what is a lack of economic reality. we can talk about it as the morning goes on. these workers make an annual benefit package of $130,000 and they have been offered a 6.5% cash wage increase, they don't even want to lay off jobs, just change the work rules. this is the wireline business, the rotary phone business, fiber-optic internet service, a shrinking percentage of operating income at the company. when -- these are not little guys, these are union workers, the fight for 15 rally going on
6:13 am
outside in a state that has already taken the minimum wage to $15 an hour. it is about unionizing private businesses, part of the progressive movement and it is dangerous for job creation in a country where the economy can't grow. maria: fuel on the fire like that. >> good luck creating jobs and growth in that mindset. everyone should be taken care of, you can admire sanders's authenticity. maria: leave that question out there. thank you so much. coming up a record date for the nba as stefan curry and the warrior steal the spotlight and kobe bryant riding into the sunset, we will hear from the legend himself and jack nicholson coming up. help wanted at tsa as long lines cause thousands to miss their flights, the government agency is scrambling to fix staffing issues ahead of the travel season, tell you about it next.

[cheers and applause] >> you are going to have to start paying your fair share of taxes. we are going to use that hundred million a year to invest in our infrastructure and create billions of decent paying jobs.
6:23 am
>> you may pay a little more for better jobs. people never say that. these people that don't know what they are doing. i am a free trader but the problem is you need leaders on your side that know what is going on. they don't know what is going on. we have leaders that don't have a clue. maria: the economy, one of the top issues for american voters this election season, economic data and earnings roll on, we are waiting on bank of america and wells fargo, initial jobless claims out this morning at 8:30 a.m. eastern. the best way to get the economy moving again is sustained wage. jeffrey cleveland, good to see you. characterize the economy. >> there are weak spots but people are missing a lot of strength particularly in the labor market. we are through 70 months of private-sector job growth which
6:24 am
i think is wonderful and the last two years in the job market are the best since 1999, we are adding numb 2000 a month on average. >> the job has been strong, the rate is slowing down. i want to know where are the wages? we see encouraging signs. maria: we have 2 look at the report. >> the first one was first. there is a tracker i like to look at, the atlanta federal reserve, median wage tracker, and year over year, it is not unusual to see wage growth given the slack we have had in the labor market but that has been
6:25 am
squeezed out. we are down 5% on the unemployment rate. some presidential candidates might focus on the real one. that is down dramatically since 2010. wage growth is coming. to your question on the consumer, a lot of noise and not a lot of signals in the retails data that captures a small percentage of consumer spending so i don't think if you are an investor you are sitting at home thinking about the data. dagen: people who crow about retail sales point to auto sales and autos were week in the most recent monthly report. it has been one area of considerable strength that looked week. >> on a monthly basis you had volatility like autosales but you smooth it out and look at a 12 month average, they come
6:26 am
roaring back to the 17 million annualized or higher. maria: that was not the case last month. >> that is my message to investors. we can get a lot of signal but is it telling us anything? maria: stocks are at highs for the year, we are at 1.6%, strong demand for the 10 year auction yesterday, something is wrong with that picture. long-term interest rates can't be that low and be bullish on stock market. it is a weak environment. >> there are not enough safe assets globally. investors have a lot of cash, foreign-exchange managers and liquid asset treasuries meet that need. they might not give the economic signals we think a low treasury yield has given us.
6:27 am
>> liquidity issue, let's rush into this. maria: good to see you, thanks so much. the obamacare fiasco, so many users with short-term fans enrolling in government programs and the government spending money to study shrimp on a treadmill, latest coverage, you will not believe the ridiculous thing the government is wasting your tax dollars on. we will report back, stay with us.

maria: good thursday morning, everybody. i maria bartiromo. it is thursday, april for teens. countdown is on. five days to go until the new york primary. donald trump pushing a wall along the mexican border at a rally last night. john kasich still not taking it seriously. >> i would say within two years from the time we start here we will start quickly. we will start quickly. it will be a real ball. >> i have very little doubt that would happen. they can't wait to build that wall. traded to the fight for 15 is that if the pictures this morning in new york or fast food workers protesting for higher pay. we will take you there live. lots of protesting in new york. long lines at the airport. when american airlines is pushing back against the tsa this morning.
6:31 am
one of the best-known examples of government waste, shrimp on a treadmill. we will work at this year's congressional so-called book. a look at why sellers have been lowering prices. you want to hear this one. i met for the record books but the golden state warriors win in the 73rd game of the season. most kids wanted the single-season. the end of an era in los angeles. kobe bryant played his final game last night going out on a high note scoring 60 points. investors waited on earnings will set the tone. bank of america and wells fargo. yesterday jpmorgan set the tone with you than expected numbers in that set the tone for a big rally in stocks. features indicate a lower opening, pulling back from yesterday's triple digit move. health care costs on the rise in america due in large part to premiums that the affordable health care act. americans are turning to short-term health policies as an alternative to plants purchased
6:32 am
through the exchanges. in fact, sales of short-term plans last year were 150% higher than in 2013. joining us now to explain the move toward short-term policies as firmware new york lieutenant governor and the author of beating obama cared, betsy mccoy appeared good to see you. you brought along the affordable care act. >> it's not so affordable which is why consumers are fleeing to short-term plans. the reason is they don't want to pay for all the costly and unwanted benefits granted to this law. >> this is 2000 pages. one of the things people were saying when they were pushing this through as the lawmakers didn't even rate it. dagen: how could they read it? when you piece together this kind of hideous patchwork quilt of laws, you don't really know
6:33 am
the outcome. we are just beginning to see even with the cadillac health care tax it was supposed to be put in and it got kicked out and delayed a little bit because lawmakers are worried, particularly democrats but that will do to the cost of the employer health insurance market. maria: walk us through what's been happening. >> this is what i professor president must say it teachable moment. two of the lessons are americans don't want a one size fits all washington decide health plan that includes things like pediatric and adult care if you don't have kids come with maternity care if you're a man or a family to want to have kids. substance abuse programs if nobody in your family has any desire to take drugs. you are forced to pay for all those things. it is one of the things that made the plan so available. don't try to sell the same plans
6:34 am
to someone who is healthy for the same price. it's like saying i can read a chihuahua and a great game for the same price. you just can't. 5% consume 50% of the health care because they are very sick. you can't sell plans to sick and healthy people for the same price for the healthy people run away. true to some and more americans choose to short-term health policy. is that what people should be doing? >> if you are young and healthy and you don't plan to get pregnant. because the something guy for that happens, you are legally entitled to sign up for the affordable care act. maria: if you go for the short-term plan, you get a penalty. >> you get a penalty. the short-term plans are less than a third of the price. after you add the penalty it is still a good deal.
6:35 am
you can't buy them in new york. you can't buy them in massachusetts. in some states people are literally captive to their own state laws that prevent them from buying affordable plans as well. >> are in a lawmakers talking about the short-term plan getting a penalty? >> chances are the do-gooders in states like california will try to make them illegal once they realize what's going on. >> is a cut in the binder in half? >> repealing about mccarran letting them choose the health insurance they want. >> if republican gets elected in the white house, this is a train -- >> you don't think it will happen? >> i think it's hard to completely rip it off. >> you are wrong. 11 million people out of a population of 318 million have
6:36 am
signed up for plans. it is miniscule. in fact, obama hair is already made death spiral. maria: hillary clinton says she's not going to appeal about medicare. >> five out of the six big insurers have signaled they are heading for the exit because they are trying to sell these. dagen: this all goes to the point is how do you pay for this when you have people who are sick whom are paying more money for their policy. they have tried to make out the individuals as part of a math cover the cost of people who are very, very ill. some of them to take care of themselves. it does somewhere. >> that's right. a 30-year-old man stuck with a bronze plan that is a $6000 deductible per person is never going to get a penny back for all the premiums you pay us. umass will pay for car payments
6:37 am
instead. >> the crazy thing is just too big health insurance mergers to help economies of scale to get these guys going and make a survivable and as for shame and other regulators with the same allies are saying you can't march us. maria: before you go, we've been talking a lot about high tax states where people are leaving in droves. david tepper is leaving new jersey. >> new york, connecticut. maria: becoming lieutenant governor of new york, the tax story -- >> they are voting with their feet. connecticut is the latest. the populace is leaving connecticut. taken a nosedive in connecticut. new york a little less a game a little tax relief to the middle class. it is not great. new york is one of the heaviest tax states.
6:38 am
the whole northeast corridor has been antibusiness aura about it. they are controlled by democrats in by democrats and are taxing the heck out of everybody. maria: betsy, good to see you. thank you for bringing the mother with you. the affordable care act. maria: the just plain robust to the art of keeping your cool. the latest raise the government is managing to waste your money. the tsa gets its fair share of criticism. blasting the agency for how it handles airport screenings. we will have the details back in a minute. ♪
6:39 am
i'm billy, and i quit smoking with chantix. i had a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was, that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these,
6:40 am
stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

maria: welcome back. in a report on federal government waste. the tab is rising 21% in waste from fiscal 2016. cheryl casone at the story. cheryl: good morning, maria. good morning, guys. it's called the but he once again highlighted what it sees as the first port pro-government projects when it comes to spending. among the $255 million for the joint fighter airstrike aircraft come it's been in development 15 years. it is now four years behind schedule. $85 million for house office buildings. this is against government waste speculating that it will be to help renovate the office building, a 10 year $750 million project. they are spending it on themselves. good for them. some pictures we are getting right now here in new york city from affiliate wabc. mcdonald's customers may be created in several cities by demonstrators calling for pay $15 an hour.

6:44 am
will travel this summer, two hours you should be there for a domestic flight. three hours for international. they are trying to train tsa agents. maria: we were talking about this in the break because we are global entry participants. some of the lines are not always so thin. dagen: no. that also includes tsa free. i haven't flown once in months and months where he went to the airport and the tsa resigned as so thin. listen, you pay for this. you go through a background check. you're supposed to not take your shoes off. it's supposed to be a 400 charter line. you go through the metal detector. maria: that's why you spend the time to do the background check. they've never open the line. maybe it's a staffing issue. >> part of its staffing issue. the tsa misstep in the planning.
6:45 am
their thinking was more americans are going to sinai. they haven't had the enrollment numbers they expected when they started it three years ago. dagen: didn't stop selling it as a service. maria: and stop charging for us. >> iowa's question misappropriation of resources. i want to commend the custom officials who saved us all by stopping us from smuggling in apple that was my daughter's mac back into the country. the dog came over and started working with us. and apple in the back. dagen: what a great dog, though. >> dog was great. dagen: if you don't check in for your flight and it didn't finish out to the airport less than an hour before the flight, the airlines will give your seat away. datawindow paid above you. so they use it as an excuse. and it happens all the time.

6:50 am
taking a look at stocks on the move. chipotle at an early action. an upgrade from jpmorgan. the stock has been down in the wake of a food safety crisis. the shares have lost 34% in the last year. watching financials this morning. earnings are coming in a black rock with its decline 20% lower from a year earlier. the stock this morning at 348. bank of america adjusted in the tape right now. the sooners a 21 cents per share beat expectations and is coming out to strong result yesterday from jpmorgan. we will look further at the bank of america quarter coming up your luxury home sellers reduce asking prices across the country. in january about 4% of homes priced at $5 million above were sold for less than asking price. that is a massive increase compared to a year earlier. joining me now are the stars of bravos million dollars listing new york stars.
6:51 am
thanks for joining us. brien, what are you experiencing? you know this firsthand. you just love the apartment a state million dollars. tell us about the market right now. >> i think the market is in a strong great place. the difference now compared to a year ago as people are treating. people are willing to negotiate in apprentice prices have been reduced. what's happening is an adjustment. it's like a chiropractor. prices are too inflated. people are willing to do deals. it will sell for me. it's not going to sell for 10. maria: do you think it's a buyers market? >> it is definitely. because of the record-breaking prices that sellers were getting two years ago. they are still expect dean to have the same results and
6:52 am
because of the over supply to the market futures, buyers are little bit more careful and calculated and they are no longer paying the prices they were paying before and setters are starting to see that. maria: what do people want in the luxury apartment or home? are there other things that compensate for a few lower the price that i need this. >> it depends. if it is a resale they want things not just a broom swept in as is condition. they will come in asking for stronger demands of buyers can start dictating closing days. they will start dictating closing costs here and there. if it's new construction in new york city, you really start to play with closing costs are closing costs are built-in to rid iraq rates. in the areas of the city where you have no supply like the east village. i was just talking to someone in the green room. there's nothing.
6:53 am
if you go to the east have no control. maria: it's really about supply. where lcc supply changes in the market right now? let's take new york. >> midtown and that time is heavily filtered the supply. you have a lot of options. even a $5 million by million dollars buyer, there's a lot of things to choose from. downtown east village places sacred point brookland, nothing to buy. things just move, move, move. we have a project just over 50% the result from my office in soho. or go to 57 straight a mark with a for three-month in favor of working on some thing together right now and buyers walk around and see other things for four days. the price point is $50 million. two years ago you couldn't do that. you would walk around for our new seen everything. maria: some people feel that what we see in terms of sellers
6:54 am
seeking prices down as an indicator of what's to come. is this the beginning of a larger selloff in real estate right now? >> you are saying that buyers see the more they wait the more immature it comes to market and keep on dropping prices. they are selling for 15% to 20% discount. the buyers are not desperate and they can afford to wait so they become more patient. the more patient the real sellers start to drop prices and the ones that are not real sellers can take it off the market or just wait. i'm not in the market nobody is too much. maria: hysteric indicative of the rest of the country? a similar situation? >> there's a ripple effect. we have offices in miami and l.a. in a month later they will call me stressing about the things i was stressing about a month ago.

performance and how they just don't take responsibility for it. >> no, they caused this bill. it has been devastating to the communities and states involved and we are having this hearing next friday which is earth day. instead, president obama and jayna mccarthy went to be in new york to sign the agreement from the paris climate deal when the epa caused the poisoning of a river in the united states. it's completely irresponsible. maria: how did the epa do it? walk us through what happened and what mistakes were made. >> it was a claim that. they knew there was an area under pressure and yet the people working there under the control of the epa caused the disaster. the spill occurred and they didn't notify people because this is not an area where people would've seen it. the communities downstream that weren't informed. the tribes were not informed extended periods of time.

7:24 am
no one's been punished or no one's been disciplined at all. they just want to forget about this, whereas you know it's a private company had caused this bill, there would be all kinds of repercussions. the government would be all over that. so the government has this kind of a two-sided approach. what they need to do versus what a private company needs to do. it is a double standard and it's wrong. the epa has gotten too big, too unaccountable and they need to be held accountable. the people in the area are very kind turned right now because there is snow is melting, edition the water is running into the river and its churning out. the poisons that have been deposited down in the river better coming back up. maria: here is michael block, senator. >> what does this mean for the epa? should it be strapped, replaced? how much should a private

subpoena to show up. meanwhile they are pointing fingers at private companies all the time. the epa getting scrutiny from the republican candidates. gina mccarthy fired back. they will not go down without a fight if the gop wins in november. here is the quote, senator. the epa's rules get scrutinized like no other. they would have to go to the same level of scrutiny by any president should there be a reversing direction. what is your take on this? >> well, the epa has been reinterpreted and applause. from years ago with the epa has done now has nothing to do with current or new legislation. it's a reinterpretation of all flaws and that's what they are using to go after poll, to go after energy, to go after land use, water use. it is a land grab essentially where they are calling all of the waters which primarily come

>> what are you going to miss most. >> the training of it, preparing for games, preparing for, you know, the top players in the league. and you know, coming together with my teammates. maria: the top story in business this morning, wells fargo out with this hour and peers reported a decline in first quarter profits. hurt by declining oil prices and one of the largest lenders in the energy sector. checking the broader markets, we're well off the lows of the morning, dow industrials now expected open up one point. michael block, thoughts on this, and earnings setting the tone once again, right? >> earnings setting the tones and jobless claims came in and not surprising. cpi, everyone is talking inflation is finally going to lift. the cpi is a little light. maria: up 1/10.
8:33 am
just hit the tapes. >> we've had this incredible run based on oil and then jp morgan came out. how is bank of america going to get higher fees when there was the m and a market. we've had a nice run. maria: you're not going to buy into the banks on the earnings then? >> no, i'm waiting and waiting, if the people want to run them up and drink the kool-aid and say, hey, this means everything better and by the way, these things are cheap. i'm not in a rush here. dagen: i want to point out the m and a business is not going to completely perhaps. it's slowed down, but you're not going to see the mega deals and the government, god forbid intervened in horrific ways, but you'll see transactions. >> the monster fees are gone, but the small and mid cap may have more m and a. maria: we've got to mention the price of oil, all the way up
8:34 am
above $40 a barrel. one of the reasons the markets have stabilized. we've got a production freeze summit coming up on the 17th. is that going to-- >> breaking news, we've been talking about this for a while and maybe takes care of the supply side, assuming the saudis, russians and iranians and qataris are going to agree to a freeze. but if there's oil that slips out and did. maria: take a look at the campaign trail, the delegate count on the republican side, donald trump 755 and ted cruz in the 500. the candidate needs to hit, 1237. randy evans thinks that donald trump might be able to wrap up the nomination with that. if donald trump exceeds 1100 votes he will become the
8:35 am
nominee even though he won't have 1237. and that trump will be able to pick up enough unbound delegates to push him over the top. joining us is former congressman and candidate himself, ron paul. sir, good to see you. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. maria: we've been debating the rules all morning and every day and you know, the rules are 1237. what do you think? would donald trump get it even if it's falling short under that number? >> well, if that's his net total and he's short, i don't think he will and i don't think he should. but, you know, they're dealing with these rules, but the rules are, in politics are made to be broken just like the rules in government. generally, i think the political system is sort of like the government. they're broken, they're arbitrary and favor one group over another and of course, i went through that four years ago, how at the last minute they can change the rules. so it's a messy business for sure and i think that people are starting to wake up.
8:36 am
i think it might be a little bit late to really restore sanity to this country, economically and in other areas. maria: so walk us through what you did go through. it's true, you actually faced very similar situation and we're having this controversy about the delegates, even if you get the popular vote, you're not getting the delegates? >> right, but we were well aware of the rules and we actually thought rules were made to be followed and the system had been made so that a competing candidate that might not have all the money and all the, you know, all the prestige would still have a chance. so they said, well, you know, if you get five states and you have plurality, you get to be recognized and give a speech, something happens at the convention. it gives you a little bit of a chance. maria: yeah. >> and we had a little bit of a chance, nothing like what trump has done. but we qualified to participate in the convention.
8:37 am
but they got hysterical because we were dealing with issues and they didn't want to deal with that and they didn't want to touch anything. so they panicked, we can't have ron paul give a speech, have him nominated, that would be horrible. and they changed the rules and they're biting them because they want to do the same thing. the rules aren't necessarily bad, they were set up. the other thing that people don't understand, the way they're set up, some of the states if they choose to make their election a straw vote, that's essentially what was going on. i know that's essentially what was on in iowa and we played-- we actually won iowa. we had, you know, 80% of the delegates because we knew the system, but they just changed the rules at the last minute, but it was a straw vote and a lot of states do, nothing wrong with straw votes. maria: wow. >> so that trump is off base when he says it's rigged. a lot of rigging going on, but i don't think he understands how the rigging works.
8:38 am
maria: congressman, we've got frank luntz with us this morning. frank. >> congressman, a pleasure to see you, it's been a while. i've got ask you, who is the freedom candidate in this race? you were the freedom candidate four years ago. who is that person this time? >> rand paul, you know what happened to him. so, i guess i've been really pretty shocked because i've looked at the 20th century as the death of tote ta totalitarianism and people were coming around and saying, i like libertarians, i'm libertarian on this. i'm shocked at this country. this describes to me how sick the country is and how panicked they are where they can rally around-- >> so congressman. >> looks like we need socialism, but reflects what's going on in the universities.
8:39 am
>> would you consider it possible voting for the libertarian candidate if donald trump is the nominee? >> certainly, why not? there you go. >> why should i throw my vote away. i think that people's votes should count. and people who say progressive and green party, i'm wasting my vote, not if you're disgusting. hillary is not a progressive. she's a neocon and she could run as republican. if you're a libertarian, vote libertarian and make your vote count. just to vote for the lesser evil. maria: dagen. dagen: congressman, do you think that we're talking about socialism, do you think that it's not just in name? do you really fear that these policies will take root even regardless of who wins come november? >> well, it is a tricky thing about defining socialism. they're going to take root,

whether we're going to stop them, whether we're going to stop the expansion of government and control of our markets below, you know, zero interest and all of the nonsense going on. and the teaching over the last 70 years-- seven years, deficits don't matter, print more money. that's the problem and that's going to continue. the names have changed because actually sanders is not a pure socialist. he's an extreme interventionist, keynesian who wants to plan the economy and use his authority to redistribute wealth. that is socialistic, but you know, they still deal with corporations. maria: he's not making any-- he's out and saying he's not making a secret of it. michael block is here. >> congressman, i see the g.o.p. as being very anti-libertarian here as you and frank have pointed out. i see emphasis on anti-immigration, pro-life and anti-gay rights and about the
8:41 am
republican party focuses on that, could they be more libertarian, if they say people should do what they want to do and smaller government in these respects. >> a lot of times they paint me as an isolationist which is false. they put on sanctions and telling people what to do, i want free trade, i don't want managed trade and all of the government managed trade like we have now, and trump makes some points on this, but, no, i think the libertarians, at least i had a modified version of it because i think that an active aggression is killing a live fetus. and we have to deal with that. there's a different position for-- libertarians they don't march lock step. as a matter of fact, even the libertarian party, i'm a little bit annoyed because they're getting to be a little more war mongering than i like. i like nonintervention.

i like minding our own business and bringing our troops home and they're not there anymore, but that's certainly what our founders advised for, stay out of tangling alliance. maria: frank luntz says we're going to a contested convention, do you agree with that? >> i think the odds are pretty good on that. i wouldn't bet against that because, you know, the republicans have dug a big hole for themselves. if they let trump walk away with it on a first vote, you know, that's-- they can't tolerate that, but of course, they're going to be in a deep trouble if they prevent it and you let cruz or nominate cruz, so they're really in a box and i just wished people would emphasize that the-- a lot of people would like, who are libertarian and conservative, who cares about the republican, helped destroy the republican authority. what about the democratic party? are they much better? i don't deal with that. i don't like to deal with the party thing. i want to deal with the principles of free market and of sound foreign policy and

protection of civil liberties. maria: right. >> and when that-- that revolution comes, believe me, it will infiltrate all parties because the revolution of 100 years ago changed everything about the monetary system and welfarism and war and so it's in both parties. so, really, if -- there is no difference between the two parties. i know that's all we hear about is this argument, but that's all just a charade. maria: wow, congressman, good to have you on the program. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. maria: and ron paul. you believe we're going contested? >> if there's a time for an independent ron paul candidacy that would mean, this is that time. >> i wish he were running based on what we just heard. maria: and how a bill i am will impact your privacy. and it's the toughest college

>> welcome back. ivy league colleges are super selective and among the toughest to get into. harvard's acceptance rate for the class of 2020 is only 5.2%, but if you think that's super competitive think again. minerva school has acceptance 1.9%, this is a for-profit college start-up, offering a unique education. joining me is the ceo of minerva project. >> thank you for having me. maria: you say you're building a perfect university and there you are and market street, you've got neighbors like twitter, spotify, uber, and is the environment, the back drop in terms of san francisco and, you know, innovation part of what you're getting at minerva? >> yeah, it's a big part about it and the thing about minerva, any university has things that it needs to work on.
8:54 am
the difference is that we set up minerva as an institution that ierates all the time. and we teach them practical knowledge what they can do in the future and despite starting from a higher base, we continue to get feedback from students and improve every day. maria: why is it so hard to get into? >> well, we are an institution that is set up to train, find and then train people who are going to make, what we refer to as decisions of consequence, they have decisions on others much more so than themselves. toe to find people who have the intellectual curiosity and force power, the humility and passion to succeed in those types of environments is extremely hard to find so we reject something like ten valedictorians for every one that we admit and we really have to find people who we believe are going to run the
8:55 am
major institutions of the world in the future and give them the kind of training that prepare them to do that. dagen: i will ask questions that more students need to ask and their parents, how much does it cost? >> very good question. so minerva is an extremely intensive environment, less than 20 students in them. attention in your class environment and career support, immersion in the city and students live in seven different cities across the next four years, san francisco and then they live all over the world and tuition at minerva is $10,000, you have to pay for room and board and live and eat so the total price tag is 28,000, but well under half of the traditional ivy league university where the majority of your classes will be lectures. maria: how do you make it affordable?
8:56 am
it's a debate across universities, how do you get the price down. >> the question is less about what we strip down, more what other universities bulked up. tuition 1965 and adjusted for 2015, tuition at private evie league would be $10,000 a year and what's happened in the interim is that universities got into this crazy amenities race where everybody has to build a nicer football field and lawn and everything else and so they build the outrageous campuses. maria: you want to take athletics? >> that's right. we're in favor of students exercising and we live in great cities and plenty of parks and you know, public recreation activities, but we don't think that people should pay $10,000 just for athletics every year. maria: and frank luntz is here, a polster, and that's why we've got bernie sanders resonating with free college, frank luntz. >> and that's why i clearly need to exercise if anyone does. [laughter] my one question, how is the
8:57 am
teaching different there. how do the professors, i know personal interaction, do you teach differently. maria: real quick. >> we teach different, lectures are banned at minerva, protesters can't talk for more than four minutes at a time. you want to engage students in active learning. students participate in every single class and assessed how well they do in class participation. we don't do tests we look at their project work and class participation. the other way we do it. maria: right. >> simply is we do our courses on a proprietary internet platform that we've built. even though the students live together they don't go to a physical classroom. they actually in a very immersive environment and teaching much richer. maria: good for you for this innovation. when a moment turns romantic why pause to take a pill?
