6:03 am
last two days. maria: he has had a tough couple days but they are beginning to stabilize. dagen: more on that since yesterday, listening to the rallies, he was more focused and on message, someone gave him an index card and at the bottom, do not talk about anything else. maria: intervention is the wrong word but the team is trying to encourage him to stay on message. >> with recent polls that have been out he will listen a little more about staying on message because he has lost ground and needs to make that up. maria: particularly in swing states. terrorism on top of the minds of voters, presidential nominee set to receive national security briefings ahead of the election. this is a tradition dang back to president harry truman. president obama warned donald trump about keeping information classified and trump had his own rebuke for rival hillary
6:04 am
clinton. >> tradition and the law that if someone is the nominee, republican nominee for president they need to get a security briefing so if they were to win, they are not starting from scratch in terms of being prepared for this office. they were told these are classified briefings and if they want to be president they got to start acting like a president. >> we are supposed to be briefed in the not too distant future. you can't brief her. let's protest. her email scandal put our entire country at risk, made sensitive secrets vulnerable to hacking by foreign adversaries. hacked all over the place. maria: democratic strategist,
6:05 am
boris epstein, republican strategist and senior advisor to the trump campaign. the subject is national security after what we just learned about hillary clinton and her use of private emails. how do you see this? >> a complicated issue, great talking point for the trump campaign. there are only three emails mark classified and no information her server was hacked. maria: a lot of that was said by him comey. >> extremely careless camera they will jump on it. i am about to get you real good. i encourage everyone this morning, michael morel has an op-ed why he is backing hillary and talks about how confident she is, she was always making the right decisions and how vladimir putin is trained to prey upon people like donald trump and is gaining, trolling
6:06 am
our election, talking how -- maria: it is not about russia, hillary clinton was incredibly careless with it. comey said nothing was classified but he said that is not true. there were a lot of classified -- >> i am not -- it is a problem. >> much more than that, she didn't turn over 33,000 emails supposedly about yoga or whatever it was, obvious lies by the clintons. the money that went to iran started by hillary clinton on her experience. >> we could say no no no like hillary did to chris wallace. >> not about throwing out lies, competency -- has been shown to
6:07 am
have a temperamental issue. you would rather trump get the briefing. maria: i want to be clear we are talking national security and daily briefings, why should we say trump is not up to the job when hillary has already shown us, given us evidence what she does in terms of national security? >> they should both receive the briefing. i personally trust her more. >> he has done nothing -- maria: based on what? >> jim comey said there was no willful intent here. >> she should not be in jail? she should get a national security briefing? maria: just because she wasn't invited doesn't mean she didn't compromise national security with her reckless behavior, that was at her discretion. this was a decision they made at
6:08 am
the outset before she was secretary of state, we won't use state department email in the bigger picture is you have a president standing behind the presidential seal calling a candidate for president unfit and baiting donald trump, saying you better not spread details of the security briefing when in fact hillary clinton lied to the american people and continues to lie. the bigger picture, the president of the united states calling out one candidate and not another candidate, called a liar by the head of the fbi. >> the united states of america that for eight years has suffered under the clinton obama national security policy. we are unquestionably worse off, isis has spread under clinton/obama, look at the middle east, egypt, libya. >> we are not litigating the policy. >> i will tell you what is
6:09 am
happening in this country and overall in the world in relation to this country. we are worse off, she is going to get emails through a private server or whatever server she is using while running for president, no one knows, donald trump should be. >> no question about her handling of national security issues and to have president obama call out donald trump and assume he is going to be negligent when we have already seen one candidate be negligent with this information is outrageous. to get on that train with all the media behind it is wrong. we have seen the evidence. >> we respect comey immeasurably and i understand why he felt the need to indict without indicting. >> barack obama has shown amateurism even in his last year as president, he cannot resist
6:10 am
stepping down and attacking, george w. bush did not do this. dagen: he is a professional politician, when he sits up there. >> for president -- dagen: it is low, beneath the office. >> whatever you want to call it. >> this is a professional getting paid to go after a candidate and openly bait him. the campaign and the president are trying to get donald trump to say something that will hurt him. maria: let's give hillary clinton credit, she is up in the polls and gaining. >> important key demographics, what i found more interesting is donald trump is up 5 with whites and that is the demographic he needs, he is not going anywhere with minority voters, independent voters inching closer and leading by 5 points to handle the economy. he doesn't win on economy and terror he is in trouble. >> 5 points --
6:11 am
>> national security on the national security -- >> two or three. >> as you look at the bounce in the dnc clinton has not had the best week. it is one week, it is august. 96 days to go, donald trump will continue making his case. this $400 million, state sponsor of terrorism under clinton/obama will resonate, democrats continue to lie to the american people and put our nation at risk, donald trump will not allow that to happen. maria: we will leave it there, good to have you, thousands of homes losing power as a tornado ripped through new orleans, several buildings, an update on the storm coming next. apple dumping on the bandwagon of companies paying hackers, the 6 you figure paycheck hackers can take from apple, back in a

6:22 am
important in this jobs report. >> hopefully it will be less fireworks and headlines on the july report. my eyes are on the participation rate, wages and revisions. all three of those matter. the last three months we revised jobs lower. if that trend continues we need to watch that. and overall feeling for the economy's strength. also wage data, average hourly earnings will be up 0.3 which is a nice bump in wages that will put annualize wages year-over-year and continue to grind their way higher. maria: the revisions we have seen, the main number was we, 11,000 jobs in may. >> may was the biggest concern because it was originally reported a 30,000, that is revised downward. we had a good number for june but the overall average when you look at job growth, they haven't
6:23 am
been very strong which is concerning. they keep revising numbers downward. i am interested in what revisions are going to be for the past two months looking at labor participation. it is at a four decade low and we need to see people participating. maria: what we are seeing from customers, they are having to pay more in the market. it is getting very competitive. with the pressure of unemployment getting lower, we hear from people every time, we can't find a job, there are many jobs out there, they are in the service sector and really professional jobs but it is very competitive, multiple job offers, the dynamic is shifting.

6:25 am
squeezes wages higher and make the job market more competitive. maria: is this a vicious cycle? could be the jobs number or gdp number, do we see behavior dictated by the numbers? dagen: what number would indicate recession? when you need to see a falloff for several months? >> 3, 6, 12 months rolling jobs average, 150 and 200. we have been walking this down which is normal full employment. we should expect them to decline. recession, you have to see less jobs created in the laborforce, 3 times the number of jobs of
6:26 am
people -- maria: look at this, in terms of the market reaction, talking about valuation, and a negative number selling at a rich level. is there a reaction if we get a good number? >> if you got a hot number, north of 250, bring this conversation back in september and the market short-term would not react well. it would be a bit of a squeeze. maria: we are two hours from the jobs report, we will bring it to you, it kicks off at 8:00 this morning, stay with us for that. zika fears threatening tourism in the olympics, kicking off today, what you should know to stay safe. linkedin reporting a strong

7:02 am
this continues this morning hillary clinton soaring to double-digit lead over donald trump in race to the presidency according to the latest poll democratic nominee leads trump by 15 points, that is 48% to 33%. note the july version of the same poll had clinton leading by just three points bring in pollster former senior advisor to scot walker mitt romney, presidential campaign, ed, good to see you thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you, maria good to see you. >> what do you think is going on a last couple days can trump come back from where he is right now? >> well, there is certainly nothing in the data that says he can't win this election, certainly there is you know, if you look at what has happened in the numbers, they are both within a certain margin the reality of the situation is that boths candidates from polling standpoint are flawed candidates, starts off as campaign with 55 paris unfavorable rating average of
7:03 am
all polls right now through yesterday, through last night, hillary clinton had 52% unfavorable, trump has gone to 59% unfavorable but a year later, they are hovering into that category, that a majority of americans do not like either of they see two candidates. >> news count. >> more viewing clirn unfavorably than favorably negative 11 that is better than opponent he has only 36% voters with a positive opinion of him, giving him the score 27 points. >> and trump has does have one additional problem, where hillary clinton with democratic voters only had 10% of those democratic voters unfavorable trump between 25 and 30% of republicans unfavorable towards him what we saw the end of the
7:04 am
republican convention, is a propped republicans up supporting him at same level knots were supporting hillary clinton, but after last week they have dropped again, to he has a 120 point deficit on how upcoming with republicans. >> expecting a bump, because of the convention. but this is more than an average bump that you would get? >> this -- well, i really think the bump that you are that what you are seeing in the numbers now just like what we saw with republican convention, was a combination of the statements from the fbi director, and the republican convention. what we're seek now is democratic convention basically what was worst week of any presidential campaign, that i have seen in modern history for donald trump. >> why so bad in tell us. >> i think a couple things first of all you have to say the reason why people originally unfavorable towards donald trump was not because
7:05 am
of politics but because of his is style what they saw fightsback with khan family, had a very negative reaction it was reenforcement of negatives ending the week quite frankly with states about not endorsing paul ryan, not endorsing mccain basically sent a message to those republicans that were unabout comfortable with him you have free license to go with your feelings, too. >> is about reverseble the unfaifshz for hillary clinton and donald trump are we look at low turnout do you think in november. >> you could be i think you are going to see high turnout of the partisans because the democrats don't like trump republicans don't like hillary clinton. the one thing you are seeing in data is that with independent voters more than 60% of independent voters are unfavorable towards bothed candidates if this is a food
7:06 am
fight in the fall they are as likely to stay at home as opposed to say i like this one least i am going to vote for the other one and turn out. >> interesting highest number independents we have seen in a long time, they if they stay home helps hillary? >> well, it -- it does, depends on what you are looking at with independents that is where you get into different polling firms do it differently. i am a big advocate of taking those independentsnd pushing them when party they lean towards first, and looking at the true independents that don't have any political leanings, that shrinks from 40% of the country to 20%, that is a group to watch. >> what about this issue being rigged donald trump warning political system is rigging president obama, in turn dismissed trump called his comments ridiculous listen to this, ed. >> i am telling you november 8 we better be careful because that election is going to be rigged i hope the republicans are watching closely or going
7:07 am
to be taken away from us. >> i don't even know where to start on answering this question, of course, the elections will not be rigged what does that mean that is ridiculous that do you have any idea of the make anyway sense, i don't think anybody would take that seriously. >> mr. trump is up -- 10 or 15 points, object election day ends up losing, then -- you know may be he can ray of some questions. >> trump waestsdz no time responding on twitters said president obama should ask the dnc, about how they rigged the election against bernie what do you think for the president to say it is ridiculous, onif ridiculous given what we just saw from the e-mails out of debbie wasserman schultz and her team. >> you know, i have to say, if you are running for president you don't you don't trash the system the way that trump is doing it, i think -- again, going back to the reason why many people unfavorable towards trump is because of his style, because of his
7:08 am
brashness, trump needs to stop campaigning to 35 paris of the country that likes that style and start showing that he is campaigning to the broader audience running against the system doesn't get tell him. >> you don't think anything is rigged about the system. >> no, it is not rigged in terms of system -- >> do you think bernie sanders got a fair shot? >> i do think bernie sanders got a fair shot, and -- and i think he ran a good campaign. i think hillary clinton with an a good campaign. you know, the can when you get back to this is not about a system rigged this is about this is what is going to win this election, whoever can convince the middle class that you are going to make their lives safer and you are going to make the middle class more prosperous to bring american people in their reach they are going to get the vote. which ever candidate does that between now and election railing gains the system doesn't get you there talking
7:09 am
about what you are going to do to bring prosperity to middle class bring american drooechl back within reach that is winner for this election. maria: i agree with that. >>. dagen: to add to your point when you tell your core voters that the system is rigged you are essentially to some discouraging them from voting because again they throw hands up going my vote doesn't matter why am i going to go vote. >> that is no different than what the reaction was 70% in your allocates fox poll what is wrong going after khan family rather than recognizing the contributions of the family, that they have you know he got in a night with is one he shouldn't have got in a been for surrogates to push that political message should not be coming from principal. >> i wonder if people write that off we know not a politician never expected him to -- >> i mean some of his supporters and even independents out there might
7:10 am
say well, yeah, it was bad, but. caution he is not a politician. >> well, he is in a position -- this is the hard line that he is running on here. is that his very close to for months people have been saying he has no filter. maria: yeah -- >> from that to he has no filter but shows the true him, he is in trouble. >> yeah. >> he has to show that it runs deeper, than just his immediate reaction of someone hetz me i am going to hit back. >> my concern, really, ed more that we could be looking at some of our lowest turnout ever for voting i mean based on a lot of polls what we're hearing people are saying you know what i don't like either candidate i am not going to come out and vote we are three months outs from november 8. we need to think about you know how do we get candidates the candidates definitely need to get their message out of what they are going to do differently to your encourage
7:11 am
people i am curious ed for you what is your advice what advice do you give candidates to really get you know, voter turnout get people to vote for them? because, right now it seems like people are giving up they are they don't want to even participate. >> well, a little bit of frustration there but interesting if you look from a different standpoint only 3% of the country like both candidates he not that i recall is 30%. maria: 3%, wow. >> about a quarter of electorate to 30% electorate december-like both candidates then 35% that like one dislike the other fairly equal in terms of those numbers, this campaign has to be run to that 30%, 25% that dislike both candidates but they have to i mean, from negative standpoint, dislike opponent more but more tell them a message of why perhaps you may
7:12 am
not like me because of my style, but here is what i am going to do for you. and quite frankly at this point watching the -- the hillary campaign, clinton campaign, they seem to understand that more than what we're seeing out of the trump campaign they keep playing to that 35%, that like him but doesn't like her. maria: ed good to see you thanks so much. >> good seeing you. maria: joining us there, coming up no more false advertising facebook series about fight against -- a gpackers have done it again this time with a twist, what may have buyers putting on the brakes back in a minute. ♪ ♪ ♪ rock 'n' roll ♪ the kind of music soothes the soul -- ♪ ♪ i remember ndays of old ♪ ♪ ♪

7:21 am
homegrown attacks in america remains high. >> in terms of of the threat that i -- isis poses to the homeland i think it is serious we take it seriously, and as i said earlier prae sizely discuss a they are less concerned about big spectacular 9/11 style attacks, because they've been the degree of attention they can get with smaller-scale attacks. >> they have to be destroyed and defeated, in iraq and syria that is where this kans starting you got to destroy there as you say it is not the enough because it spread to afghanistan, it has spread toia we need to win as fast as weeks we are gonna wen we need to win as fast as we can. >> allocates fog news poll show economy terrorism top two issues voters most concerned about in polls former
7:22 am
commander u.s. are army war college fox news military analyst good to have you on the program thanks for joining us what is your take on president obama's news conference yesterday. >> yeah? >> as relates to isis. >> well you know, first of all, from a body language perspective did you notice how melancholy he was about trying to recite the past suggestions against isis did you pick that up almost morose perhaps apologetic what he was trying to do was to show future success by going back in a linear fashion talking about towns vilgs iraqi army captured over the last year it reminded me a little bit of richard nixon in 1970 trying to convince americans that we were winning in vietnam, not by talking about where strategy was going but talking about past successes that really sort of struck home with me. the other thing that hit me
7:23 am
was the fact the president never really talked about what the holy grail first to isis and that is a big event here at home, he kept hammering away well these are loan wolves locally produced individual akts of terror, the great fear inside government inside military that isis is trying to achieve maria that critical mass, here in this country, necessary to -- to -- to pull off another very pyrotechnic deadly event. maria: this is a serious concern on thursday, a man 35-year-old man jamale hendrix arrested an charges he sought to help islamic state trying to create a terror cell would target people on the kill list this makes two arrests this week for the fbi for by fbi for assisting isis what needs to be done now how can we do more to stop the threat of an attack at home?
7:24 am
>> i think ash carter nailed it look fbi is doing a great job of you talked about two very successful defensive plays if you are a hockey fan you know that you can't win in the nhl with just a goalie, when -- what ashe cart heer trying to tell america you got to have five more on eyes going to take the fight to the enemy and push the puck to other side and he talks about that at great length with bret baier you will notice the president talked about the offensive aspect of the war on terror very, very little maria. dagen: it is dagen mcdowell when you listen to the president speak about this threat, that he down plays it, it is board line not truthfully with american people there was national counterterrorism center map came out number of countries in two years that isis is operating in, has increased threefold it has gone from operating in seven nations to
7:25 am
18 different countries. >> right. >> where islamic state is. >> well i think what the president is saying i don't happen to agree with him what he is saying is thanks to the fbi thanks to the muslim communities, peacefulness so far united states isis why he had to achieve what is called critical mass in ability to build up a terrorist enterprise in this country i happen to think that unless the center of gravity of is ag raqqa mosul rest of franchises in the maine if not taken down in very short time like secretary carter said then it will at the mass size they will find holy grail by causing, ab catastrophic terrorist event in this country so we have to take a fight to the enemy just as carter said we have to accelerate the path the pace
7:26 am
of doing it otherwise isis is going to gain the upper hand. >> you make a great point but what about the -- the situation around iran, general? i mean, we know this four hundred million dollars was sent to iran, unmarked jet, a foreign currency looks like they wanting to keep all secret, given the fact that you know, it was cold, hard cash, that was sent we know that iran is number one sponsor of terrorism what is your take? >> yeah, look. if you want to get an honest perspective on iran talk don't talk to the administration. i mean they have a they have a sunk cost in nuclear detail talk to he israelis defends forces will tell you recite four count them four intermediary range about ballistic i mildz over last year maintain basic infrastructure of technology necessary to kwaiblg go to

7:34 am
however, only 58.9% were going to vote for her, and what we are seeing is this large bloc of voters who are still unundecided intend to vote not quite sure k they want to support 7% that is squarely deciding not voting because they don't like either candidate. >> if they don't vote joanie that would mean they are ging it to hillary clinton i guess? >> that is the mosconcerning part you wonder why millennials think that their vote doesn't matter. that they would ab stain from voting, that to me, really is concerning, because millennials they are our future, i mean they are obviously the younger generation of workforce faced with challenges like large you know student loan debt they want to buy their first home, they have not been able may be to find that right job, out of college, and you know certainly focus on wages and making more, so i would think that millennials would be
7:35 am
really in touch with the issues, and supporting the candidate they felt truly going to make a difference. and caroline we saw a little bit when bernie obviously was out there had a strong you know, percentage of the millennial vote, but now it seems like millennials are taking a a little bit of a backseat saying you know i don't like either candidate i am not going to vote i don't think that is rights direction we need millennials skroeth issues are really important. >> i think what is historically significant about this particular election is that millennials will equally baby boomers in term of voter base first time ever a new generation composed almost 30% of the voting base, equal baby boom snooerz what most concerned with the balance of supreme court is obviously at stake hillary clinton talking about free community college, and really focused on student debt, are these things that are resonating what is resonating most with this group. >> yes, so we asked about
7:36 am
economic issues that were of highest importance found number one was student loan debt relief and tuition in general we are seeing the candidates begin to talk about tuition, in hillary's case, very specifically and donald trump's case, expecting him to kwoiment with suppose proposal two to three weeks so this is the number one economic issue that top of mind for millennials, then, shortly behind that we have foreign policy as a group, as the issues that that he care about, but tuition is still number one, student loan debt on the rise. >> in terms of how the candidates are communicating, with this the youngest voting generation, we kind of talked about this but do you think -- donald trump has been very successful in using twitter but is that starting to become noise to people? like how -- what is working what isn't working this far into the election about cycle? >> what we're seeing at this point that people want spesity from candidates if should he

maria: good friday morning, everybody. welcome back i'm maria bartiromo. it is fried august 5th. 8:00 a.m. on the east coast. the county down on the jobs report, jobs report out in 30 minutes. expectations call for 180,000 new jobs with unemployment rate lower to 4.8%. it is a moment of truth for the labor market. investors watching after big swings in may and june. let's check markets right now ahead of the report. dow jones industrial average looking up. nasdaq, s&p 500, also higher. want to get a check on oil because oil has been edging down more than half a percent, now at 41.66 on crude.
7:59 am
on to the race for white house we go. trustworthiness comes as main concern for voters as donald trump and hillary clinton prepare for their first national security briefing. both trump and obama weighed in on the issue. >> hillary clinton, furthermore can never be trusted with national security. >> as far as mr. trump, we are going to go by the law. they need to get security briefings so that if they were to win they are not starting from scratch. in terms of the being prepared for this office. maria: we have the latest on that. plus the controversy over the alleged 400 million-dollars ransom payment to release four american prisoners to iran. new developments in the brussels terrorist investigation. "the wall street journal" is reporting as the attackers were planning the onslaught they were collecting unemployment checks.
8:00 am
the outrage coming up. tornado touches down in new orleans taking down buildings, trees, power lines all in its path. we have latest on the stories. with me to talk about it fox fox business network's dagen mcdowell and joanie courtney and making money with charles payne,'s charles payne. do you think it will be a good number. >> could be down from 195. i'm really worried about manufacturing and construction down with adp. we have housing shortage there. i don't know what that speaks to. maria: is it important? this will set tone for markets and give us a great window where jobs are. joanie you have a great information on where the jobs are. forcing president obama to respond to it, putting donald trump on the attack. as one of the former hostages
8:01 am
himself highlighted the tense situation that unfolded on the runway right before the hostages were released, watch. >> we announced these payments in january. many months ago. there was not a secret. we announced them. the only bit of news that is relevant on this, the fact that we paid cash, which brings me to my last point. the reason that we had to give them cash is precisely because we are so strict in maintaining sanctions and we do not have a banking relationship with iran that we couldn't send them a check. >> i wonder where that money really goes by the way, right? i wonder where it really goes. either in their pockets which i actually think more so. or towards terrorism. probably a combination of both. >> they told us you're going to be there for 20 minutes but took like hours and hours.
8:02 am
we slept at the airport. when i asked them why you don't let us go. the plane was there, pilot was there, everyone was ready to ave the country, they said we are waiting for another plane and until that plane doesn't come we never let you go. maria: they were waiting, the hostages were waiting for another plane, presumably the plane with money before they were actually released. former deputy chief of staff to former president george w. bush, chief of staff, karl rove with us. your take on this escalating situation. >> look the president was being disingenuous. that was ransom. we didn't have banking relationship? fine. park the money in switzerland and tell the iranians to work it out. we put together untraceable euros, other currencies, flopped them on to a plane and flew them out. this was clearly, iranians wanted something that they could depict as a victory. they wanted money for hostages.
8:03 am
they got it. it set a precedent. we'll rue this day. the president was being disingenuous last night as he has been about the iranian dole all along. maria: seems to extraordinary to me and some people that this took place. by the way, we should point out the iranians had a whole propaganda machine telling the public it was ransom. >> right, absolutely. maria: why was it so secretive? why was it cash on unmarked jet? why wouldn't they release the hostages until the money was there? i mean it sure feels like ransom and also feels like they're not being truthful in terms of what was behind all of this. >> sure. if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and squawks like a duck, it's a duck. this was ransom. the president paid money that was untraceable, i'm sure turned over to the iranian revolutionary guard used to fund terrorism around the world. he was being completely disingenuous. we don't have a banking relationship with them. find a place that does.
8:04 am
park the money there and tell them to go get it. instead he did exactly what iranians demanded we want cash before you get your hostages. i repeat this was a precedent. iranians now hold more hostages. does anybody think we'll get them out without paying another similar ransom? maria: dagen and i were talking earlier about the implications of this. do you think this sticks to hillary clinton in any way? dagen says she doesn't think so but i wonder what you think. >> first of all she will have to be asked by the press about it. and trump ought to put his focus there, what does hillary think of this? does she think this is good policy. after all she wasn't matley involved in setting up the iranian deal. she was the secretary of state when these negotiations began and we went down this path. yeah, she ought to be asked about it. it isn't. remember this, in this election there are two democrats on the ballot. one is named hillary rodham clinton.
8:05 am
the other whether he likes it or not is barack obama. the more trump make this is about hillary clinton and barack obama, when they can be tied together as they can be tied together on this, tied together on the economy, where they can be tied together on a lot of issues, veterans administration, the more he makes this about, if you like what you got in washington from president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton, if you like it, vote for her. if you want change, vote for me. that is a strong emphasis and strong issue that goes his way. >> karl, there are $2 billion in irnew york banks iran wants back. one court said it should go to victims of iranian sponsored terrorism. do you think ultimately between now and inauguration day for hostages taken since the first ransom payment made we make another one? >> i think president will make political calculation he shouldn't do anything between now andnovember 8th, that gives him a chance to be more criticized. i wouldn't be sure advised
8:06 am
between november 8th and january 20th if the president did something to further assuage mullahs in tehran and go down that direction. wouldn't be surprised at all. maria: let me ask you this, karl, because both presidential nominees are set to receive national security briefings ahead of the election. we know these will be daily briefings. >> yes. maria: president obama warned donald trump about keeping information classified. donald trump, you, this is important. you need to keep this information secret and classified. first without me leading you anywhere, what are your thoughts on that? >> look, i think this is a unnecessary politicization of the briefing process by the president of the united states. if you want, if the intelligence officials believe that they need to say that to both candidates, then say so privately but the president of the united states is butting into this in inappropriate way. he is making himself more a center of the campaign and poe politicizing this very important process we set in place so that
8:07 am
whoever wins the election comes in better ready to take on these awesome responsibility. my advice to the president, with all due respect mr. president, shut up. don't be saying things like that. maria: he is not speaking to both candidates. only said it to donald trump. >> only said it to donald trump. remember -- maria: despite we know hillary clinton had national securities and put them on a private server. >> right, exactly. this is my point. he is turning into all politics. is there any moment where the president has any degree of shame about politicizing everything? i don't care what it is. he seems to believe that everything out to be twisted in order to elect hillary clinton, to protect his legacy rather than doing what he ought to appropriately do, when it comes to something like this, if he is concerned have the intelligence officials tell both candidates exactly the same thing, which is, please keep this confidential. here how we handle, boom it is over. he is out of it. he has to use it as political talking points.
8:08 am
mr. politics every moment, all the time, mr. hyper partisan, this is why the american people would like to have change. why 26% think we're going in the right direction and nearly 70% think we're going in the wrong direction. maria: does anybody here think this is extraordinary? >> i do. maria: we came off whole investigation and she testified and jim comey told us she was incredible irresponsible with the information and president does a call-out on donald trump. >> says he is unfit earlier. if i can, ask karl this. the president is taking it a step further or a step beneath the office because he openly baiting donald trump. and karl, that is what it is look like. they're trying to set traps for donald trump. >> sure. and i hope he doesn't fall for it but let's step back for a minute. both of you touched on something. where did he call donald trump unfit to be president? at a news conference with a foreign leader. when we had the leader of singapore in washington, d.c. for an official visit, it is at
8:09 am
that press conference the president dives into the political pool. again, it would have been more appropriate when he was asked those questions to say look, today's not a day, this is not a place for politics. we're here with mr. lee. we're going to be talking about the world. talking about our great relationship, i'm not going to be answering any political questions today. there he is standing with the leader of singapore and he jumps back into the political pool, barning donald trump. now, look he is entitled to have his opinion but he ought to be saying that in front. democratic national committee, not in front of the diplomatic press corps and a diplomatic official event. maria: karl, great insights as always for you. we appreciate your time. see you soon, sir. >> thanks for having me. i hope some day i can on the set with you. maria: me too. i hope you will be here soon. we'll keep calling you and tell you to agree to it. >> all right. maria: thank you, karl. terrorists on welfare. you heard that right. staggering new claims surround

8:20 am
>> it is still pretty weak. that consensus number is probably about right, we'll get between 150 and 200,000. that would be a vast improvement over last month's which was 30,000. what these job numbers are consistent with, one-to-one 1/2% growth to the economy. that is quite pitiful. other thing i always look at, i keep saying month after month in the show. what is happening with wages. i think that is number one economic issue facing americans. they haven't seen a pay raise in 10 years. maria: for sure. what are the most important things to look at, joanie courtney? we know wages is critical. what are you watching? >> definitely watching revisions. that will be key to he see if may gets revised again hopefully upward. was there revision to june. wages as steve mentioned is very important. again, but, the sectors of the job are actually created. i think we really need to dig into that. even going back from you know, i think 12.9 million jobs have
8:21 am
been created since june of 2009. 94% of those jobs have been in the service sector. >> wow. >> we're not seeing job creation in construction, in manufacturing. you know those sectors really continue to be a challenge. hopefully we'll see good signs in construction. maria: 94%, huh? that is a big number. charles payne, how do you see it? >> again i'm looking, wages i think obviously we all agree on. also long-term unemployment as percentage of total unemployment, stubbornly high. it went up last month. that was one thing lost in the great, big, huge, surprise, permanent underclass, if you will of people formally had work and can't get it. that is the essential issue to the election. 27 weeks or longer. that number has been going higher as percentage of total unemployed. you wonder if we have a class of people who permanently can't get a job or not in the environment. that is scary stuff. maria: how are millenials looking, carolyn.
8:22 am
>> i look at democratic angle. millenials will be 75% of the workforce in the next five years. the way we're entering workforce and type of sectors we're entering will have significant impact on economy in the future. maria: you wonder what kind of market reaction we see as well. gary b. smith, you how would you play it from an investor's standpoint? >> i would be a buyer, yes. we rally if we get a good number. a good number implies that the economy is growing maybe a little bit better than that tepid thought that steve had although i think it is barely above that. but i think it, the number won't be so high people immediately assume that the fed will raise rates. now i think that is the reason we look at this number. who cares about that. how will it impact the fed, from specifically what i'm looking for, we already talked about wages because that tells you the
8:23 am
quality of the jobs that are being added and total, the un, labor force participation rate. that is the other thing that indicates if there is underlying strength or weakness in this jobs number. maria: dagen. >> we have four more of these reports including one this morning before the presidential election. so right now, is the time that people's views about the state of the economy are solidified. but i wonder if the sense of malaise in this country with steve pointed out, wages essentially not growing for the last decade, are firmly in place. even with a few good numbers in the next month, in the few months, maybe the stock market holds up. i wonder if the people feel any better about the economy based on one number. maria: what do you think, steve? >> you nailed it, dagen. you're exactly right. i really think this election comes down to whether people feel confident enough, even though they things are right in the economy where they feel confident enough to give, you
8:24 am
know essentially obama, clinton a third term. that is why i think these numbers are very important. you're right, dagen. i think you're right. four of these, including today. if people feel like, well, things are okay, they may not take the risk with trump but i do sense talking to voters, they're just not happy with the direction of the economy. i say this every month of the biggest lie in washington that we have a 5% unemployment rate. nobody around the country believes that, maria. maria: what is it really. >> about nine 1/2 to 10 because we're not -- we have 92, 93 million americans outside of the workforce above age 16. many people laugh with they hear that. >> many people are under employed. that is affecting that issue shoe exactly. maria: the jobs report coming up in five minutes. right the break we'll have the data. stay with us. ♪

8:28 am
everybody, welcome back. it is friday, august 5th, moments away from the july jobs report. we're expecting 180,000 new jobs for the month of july added with the unemployment rate edging down to 4.8%. after big swings, lots of volatility in the month of may and then again in june. we're also keeping a close eye on the labor force participation rate, which currently is at historic lows. people have basically stopped looking for jobs so they're not counted. that's why we look at that number. futures ahead of the number are higher. we're expecting a gain for the dow jones industrial average of about 40 points at the oofn trading but of course everything can change once these numbers hit the tape. s&p and nasdaq also higher right now. checking stocks in europe right now, we are seeing some gains there as well. it has been a slow and fractional move. the cac in paris up half a percent. the other major averages there up fractionally. checking oil prices, that is one
8:29 am
of the issues for markets earlier. oil pulling back, but still up close to $42 a barrel. with a decline of just a fraction. we have panel on deck looking at these numbers. of course we want to focus on wages. why do you think, charles, charles payne, i'm going to ask you about wages. why haven't they moved in so long? go to "fox & friends" on fox news channel looking at jobs numbers. hello, good morning, guys. >> we're dying simulcast fox news channel, fox business channel over there. maria, what is so important about this number, it is the number of jobs the economy added and it can't be any worse than the may number, which i think was 11,000? maria: 11,000 was may. it was really weak, a lot weaker than anybody expected. this is important. we all know the number one issue as far as voters are concerned is the economy and jobs. right before a presidential election. >> sure. maria: so every month matters in
8:30 am
terms of what that's going to do to the voters and how they're going to vote based on what they see and, as the ability to change their situation from either hillary clinton or donald trump. we're getting numbers in seconds, guys. let's go right to blakeburman. he is at the labor department now. reporter: 255,000 jobs created in july, maria. 255,000 jobs. that beated expectations of 180,000 jobs. with it, may and june were revised upwards. may revised upwards 13,000, still to paltry 24,000 jobs. unions revised upward, 5,000. to 292,000 jobs. that brings average over the last three months to 190,000 jobs created. as far as the unemployment rate, that stayed same at 4.9%. estimate, slightly above it, of 4.8% estimate. we always look at labor force participation rate, maria. that ticked upwards to 62.8%.
8:31 am
that is the .1% gain from last month. the last time it was 62.8% was in april. to put this in context, it is still barely above the 62.4% low from september of 2015 at that point. that was a 38-year low. hourly earnings, you were talking about them, they were up .3% to $25.69 over the last year. it is up 2.6%. businesses or areas that gained. professional and business services added 70,000 jobs. the health care industry added 43,000 jobs. as far as what moved in the opposite direction, u-6, which is those who were unemployed plus marge r marginally attached workers, for economic reasons, that ticked upwards to 9.%. mining again, the energy sector, there was a loss of 6,000 jobs there. but the headline here, maria, a big beat, 255,000 jobs created.
8:32 am
unemployment rate staying at 4.9%. back to you. maria: blake, thank you so much. blake burman at the labor department. steve, brian, this is much better than expected. we were expected 180,000. we got 255,000. wages went up a little. obviously not much, .3 of a percent. you want to see that. that is in the right movement. markets immediately trading up on heels of this number. basically trading on idea that the economy has begun to really improve based on the july numbers. now look we could see revision. we saw what happened with the may number. we had a huge revision. this is now definitely a strong number. it probably indicates at some point, maybe end of this year, federal reserve starts to lift interest rates. >> that is what i was going to ask you, if the economy is humming, that is great number, bigger than they thought, the fed want to tighten things to make things work the old way. maria: up until now, we've been talking about sitting on zero rates for so long.
8:33 am
great news for people wanting to take out a mortgage. great news for lending. not good news for savers. not getting any return with money in a savings account. >> not good if you're living on fixed income with the rate close to zero. maria: people want rates to move higher, so it feels like it is realistic where rates should be, and also to give you competition. that is why the stock market is going up. no return nip where else. it is pushing money into equities. >> maria, 100,000 jobs is needed per month to keep up with population growth. will we see that next month? the trend was low but gotten a lot higher? maria: i don't want to say one month is a trend, anna but definitely things are getting better. one of our panelists, joanie courtney running a placement firm, most of the job creation since 2009 has been in services. so this is a service economy.
8:34 am
you're not really seeing it in places like construction, but we're see little bits and pieces of it. yes, improvement. good going in the right direction. i wouldn't call it a trend yet. >> maria bartiromo, thanks so much. we have to return to to our respective networks. maria: joanie courtney, your comments about these numbers. >> it was a good jobs report. we were trending 170,000 a month for last six months. this is great. we're starting to push averages back up. we're seeing last three months 190,000 with this new report again i think this report shows us jobs in health care, professional and business service sector. of course information technology. so, again, we have moved to a service-based economy. we're not seeing the strong growth, certainly you know in the manufacturing construction. >> to charles's point, the
8:35 am
number of long-term unemployed, those who have been jobless for 27 weeks or more was unchanged over the month. they still account for more than one quarter of the unemployed in this country. 26.6% of the people who are unemployed for 2weeks or longer. that is -- 27 weeks or longer. they can't find work or jobs that duplicate the prosperity they once had. >> skillsets, mismatch, all that other stuff maybe they're attracted to the notion bring jobs i used to have, bring them back from other countries. another thing from the political standpoint, part-time jobs for economic reasons. up 97,000. take into account we've become a part-time job economy, in part because of lackluster economy. in part because of obamacare. almost back to six million. that is a big number. those are people who want full-time work. so that number went up. maria: there are a lot of
8:36 am
revisions here. may that dreadful 11,000 number revised upward. >> 24,000. >> 24,000, not a big number. june revised. steve, what is your takeaway? >> i think these numbers last number of months is weird. i think there is something wrong with the way the labor department is doing these surveys. maria, when you see these herky-jerky changes, one month it is 15,000, and the incomes it is 255,000, i didn't believe the economy was as bleak as it looked last month remember with those terrible numbers but i don't believe it is as good as these numbers indicate. i wouldn't be surprised if these are revised downward. we've been averaging over the last nine months or so about 150,000. that is okay but it is not great. maria: we'll see if there is, you're right, there has been incredible volatility. >> right. maria: carolyn, you're in touch with lots of millenials, you have got a great site there, levo, are millenials getting
8:37 am
jobs? >> so this is an issue we need to talk about. so there is a misalignment between the way in which millenials are being educated and their student debt on epic rise as we discussed earlier. and the requirements in the jobs that are being created. so we saw with the jobs report that there is significant increase in jobs coming from i.t. so i would be very curious to understand how many of those new jobs are being filled by millenials be equipped for those types of jobs. we still have disconnect between way we're equiping new generation to enter workforce and types of jobs. maria: what you said, mismatch. skillset, miss match. >> absolutely. it is interesting too, obviously as you go down the list, the people with college educations have the lowest, not only lowest unemployment rate but greatest job participation but many of them are working at jobs beneath whatev they went to school for. not associated for what they went to school for. >> they are underemployed.
8:38 am
caroline, you make a great point. seeing i.t., coding jobs are so hot right now. from development and, just, whole i.t. industry. but we are not getting the skillset out of the graduating class. they're coming out with their bachelor's degree or staying in longer, getting a masters. they come out and don't have the skills to meet that demand. definitely a challenge. maria: slow but it is moving. we had zach sims who created codeacademy. he is seeing a whole host of different generations applying to get coding lessons. this is one area that seems to see demand? >> yes. i will say, people always tweet us after the show and say you didn't talk about the lower skilled jobs, or we can't find a job. i will tell you that we speak to customers on a daily basis and there are also eptry level jobs out there. customer service is extremely
8:39 am
