6:05 am
against terrorism by the words you use. it's about the specifics. if you look what a speech in ted yesterday it was very simplistic. he was really uninformed. at times it was incoherent and looks like he was uncomfortable reading the teleprompters. i don't see how he laid out a plan. he laid out a set of attacks. he attacks into the fear people are feeling because these attacks have an impact on all of us. but there isn't a plan bear coupled with the fact you've got republican leaders in the foreign policy arena who day after day are coming out and saying he is unfit. the ones who have been monitoring and participating in global foreign policy for decades has said he sent it. dagen: what he said yesterday's exact to the frustration policy that hillary clinton has talked
6:06 am
about. if he's incoherent, she's incoherent. he doesn't aggressively pursuing military operations to crush and destroy isis international cooperation to cut off funding. expanded intelligence sharing to disrupt or disable propaganda and recruiting. i thought it was pretty coherent. you can take issue with some of the ideas. >> he is uninformed folk we are actually already doing, saying they are not doing that and there will be some new. and introducing new ideas that go against the geneva convention. the way ds that is implemented, heat the republican platform emulators would not he allowed into this country. dagen: so when in the polls when it comes to fighting terrorism. sandra: visa restrictions, ideology testing and certainly reiterated he wants to put an
6:07 am
end to nationbuilding. >> well, i think in principle that sounds good. i'm worried about the application. having said we look at x number of countries around the world and are all these individuals who want to come in these countries based on where they are from. we've been generous with allowing those seeking political asylum, those fleeing persecution to come to the united states. we need to have a more thought-out policy than that. on the other hand back to something just said. mr. trump that somehow if it is the geneva convention. it does not apply when you're fighting in waging of war. they are not afforded protections under the convention and we find out today the administration will be these 15 at the most hardened terrorists from guantánamo bay to fulfill a political promise. does that make the american people more safe. the policy seems to be incoherent. train to kerstin some of the

criticism if some of his policiesre they still on how he wants to defeat and remove isis. >> and they have been until this point. a lot of people wished he would show to bring around the most brilliant and entertaining that was more specific or we didn't get the details. republicans can be helpful in the fact he was able to adjust to the teleprompter and stand message. it is a strong speech and assess the extent of it this morning he had to get derailed because that it's been a tough thing were watching for. >> the idea of the extreme diving. what exactly does extreme diving meet. >> i was part of the immigration he considers part of our national security. not just about a plan for the middle east that securing borders. at thing that really made a great point on fox news channel incentive for have a sensible policy about refugees which is one of the issues type about, we

have to look at our border. >> he didn't mention the ban on muslims in this beach which was interesting. it was also interesting. he was conciliatory in his language. he said i want to work closely with nato. >> the controversy with his chairman at the same time when he already has changed the republican platform and he has advisors and for decades has been trying to get business in russia. can you imagine 25 years ago this would be disqualified. when you add on the fact, where are the republicans who used to say you could not say anything about the iraq war being not. sandra: what was the strongest moment for by? >> it was clearly the nuclear coast when he literally called

6:23 am
they are losing piles of money on it and they are getting out. the question is ready to go go from here? a lot of counties in this story will have no insurers on their plans. you end up forcing people into government covered plans. >> is incredibly sad when you think about people's lives. create a policy they try to create the affordable care act. you are giving them no options. no insurers in one county? think about what that means someone's everyday life. they have no options. >> the conspiracy theory is that the obamacare plan was designed to fail. not socialized medicine, medicare for all. >> what actually happened is they created this program that just doesn't work when you put the pieces together.
6:24 am
dagen: amateur opera called this one area and canalis canada won't have any insurers on the exchanges, but you were supposed to buy insurance on the exchange if you want a subsidy from the government. >> for people with low income, it was a semi-medicaid. for people who have the income and forced them into plants with much, much higher premiums. sandra: i want to talk about the markets. >> or with no insurance coverage at all. dagen: want to read my conspiracy theory that this will lead to single payer for all. hillary clinton and president abbas have mentioned a public option for the affordable care act to pick up the slack. that means the government would ensure that in the way medicare works. they both propose that. >> this is exemplified the election matter so much. we talk about how dismal the options are. the elections decide which way

6:33 am
i call it extreme, extreme vetting as soon as i take office, i will ask the state department and the department of homeland security to identify a list of regions where adequate screening cannot take place. one of my first acts as president will be to establish a commission on radical islam. which will include reformist voices in the muslim community who will hopefully work with us. trish: former cia director and chancellor of world politics james woolsey is here with us, good to have you here. did you learn anything new in donald trump's speech yesterday? >> i thought it was a sound speech, better than several he has given in the past, it was disciplined, it was structured, it had coherent ideas, it was
6:34 am
tough but wasn't to my mind rambling at all the way some of his expressions have been. i thought his ideas on guantánamo, vetting and so forth were perfectly reasonable bases to begin discussions. you might not end up calling the ultimate result extreme vetting, you might call it something else but the idea is a reasonable one. sandra: he did promise to keep guantánamo bay open if he is elected president as the defense department is announcing the transfer of 15 detainees from guantánamo bay, the single largest transfer we have seen from the facility under president obama since there have been reports that we are unable to keep track of the whereabouts of these detainees. does trump plan to keep gitmo open, make more sense?
6:35 am
>> i have been in favor of keeping gitmo functioning for many years. i think it doesn't make sense to go to all the trouble to arrest someone and convict someone who has been a terrible terrorist and treat them like a trout and release them, keep doing catch and release because you have sent them to some state in the mideast where they are originally from and not really going to go into prison and if they do it will only be for a brief time or a prison they can get out of. a lot of the way gitmo has operated in the past has not been sound and reasonable and i think it should stay functioning, 60 detainees i suppose, those are likely to be the hardest line, not sure what
6:36 am
we gain by releasing them. >> when trump talks about extreme vetting can you give us a sense what the us is doing now and how it can tighten up its vetting process? >> what steps would be taken that would protect americans? >> i don't know how it is vetted, from a country like syria, say they are not political but a physician and want to go on vacation to disney world and come to the united states. i don't know how they are vetted now but during the cold war we did not casually let people from let's say the soviet union into the united states. we didn't just look at their birth certificate or whatever. it was very hard to come from a totalitarian state like the soviet union and get admitted to the united states.
6:37 am
today but countries one has to worry about, generating terrorists rather than tourists are places like syria. not that we have always let anybody in anytime they want to come, we had criteria and restrictions all along for different purposes and it makes sense to be tough. sandra: part of the problem is he is not being specific on the resources this would require to engage in this sort of vetting. he will sort applicants for religious freedom, gender equality, gay rights, using questionnaires, social media, interviews with friends and family but this will take a lot of manpower. >> look at how we looked at people during the cold war, wanted to visit from a communist
6:38 am
state. communist states got into the lives of other citizens and tried to manage everything about them so it would be hard in the 1980s to find somebody from east germany who wanted to visit the united states and was just a nice person. it would have taken a lot of effort, a lot of searching to find this person with knowledge of the dominance of the east german regime. we have vetted people strongly in the past for decades. but he is describing it differently than it has been described before. >> i have a question, donald trump and his moral credibility. he talked about fighting the ideology of radical islam. if you are going to fight and ideology you need a stronger idea you believe in, americans believe this is the greatest country on earth, does he have
6:39 am
the moral credibility to give -- to convince people american ideals and western ideals are better? >> good question. if he doesn't he has to develop those if he is elected as president. we are, i think, the greatest country in the world, we stand for liberty, fairness, the rule of law, we have to continue to take that stance, we have under presidents of all political stripes done that for many years, but we can't give up on that. sandra: thank you for joining us. james woolsey. coming up the threat of zika spreading to another state after a texas resident, virus in florida and brought it home. google taking on apple with a new apps, it's video calling

lower across the board. in asia overnight stock led by japan at the gate which fell 1.6%. her to break it down with me this morning, dagan mcdowell, wall street journal chief economic correspondent john hilsenrath and conservative commentator kirsten haglund, we continued our track and field conversation. the olympics have been fun and costing late nights. dagen: competitive track and field on a scholarship, you are the best person in this building to talk about it. that is why i watch the commentators during track and field. i can do so much. >> i will have some commentary of my own later. former fema director michael brown and bill dudley and
7:03 am
creator and producer of hillary's america will join us. in ohio, what the us approach would be under his leadership. >> in the old days when we won a war, to the victor belonged the spoils. instead all we got from iraq and our adventures in the middle east was death, destruction, and tremendous financial loss. but it is time to put the mistakes of the past behind us and chart a new course. if i become president, the era of nationbuilding will be brought to a very swift and decisive end. >> let's bring in ambassador
7:04 am
john bolton, what was your take on donald trump's speech? >> i thought it was an excellent statement of the threat we face, namely a political ideology that despises everything we adhere to in western civilization and laid out a strategy, not a lot of details but a strategy to defeat it which is something we haven't seen in the last 71/2 years, clear contrast with hillary clinton's position which is essentially that of barack obama and the promise of a third obama term. for those who said we haven't joined the debate on the issues trump has joined it on the most important issues the american people have to judge the two candidates on this november. >> we heard in this clump trump saying the american view is to the victor goes the spoils and he would end nationbuilding.
7:05 am
is that what the united states stands for after we rebuilt europe after world war 2 roma, rebuild korea after the korean war, rebuild japan? are we really aboutgoing for sp? >> those are two entirely different things. it is commonplace for the united states at least in the last century that we don't seek to acquire advantage after military victory other than to protect our interests. there is a saying in the military, the only land we seek in conflict is land to bury our dead and that is right. nationbuilding is something entirely different and i think a mistake we embarked on, the difference is first illustrated in somalia in late 1992 and george hw bush entered on a humanitarian mission the open channels of relief and when the
7:06 am
clinton administration, and we didn't rebuild germany and rebuilt it themselves and that is the way -- the nationbuilding is our own, we can provide security, assistance, and we are not going to do it for them. sandra: a lot of questions involve nato, take a listen here. >> we work closely with nato on this new mission. i had previously said nato was obsolete because it failed to deal adequately with terrorism. since my comments they have changed the policy and have a new division focused on terror threats. sandra: was that a big turnaround for him? >> he has said before he wants to strengthen nato and that is important.
7:07 am
let's be clear, nato needs a lot of changes. it mechanism is typically sclerotic. we have many nations that as president obama has said are not living up to obligations they undertook on their own spending 2% of gross national product on defense. there is a lot of improvement that could be made but the objective to strengthen nato is exactly right. dagen: how important was the language donald trump was using? hillary clinton's campaign, they fight him constantly about his language, not just radical islamic terrorism, but going out and saying we must speak out and act out against women, gays and people of different faith in the muslim world, how significant is that? >> people need to understand the nature of the struggle, the american people in particular
7:08 am
need to hear about it, and political elites in washington, doesn't take one example. king of della of jordan, descendent of the hashemite kings, rulers of the holy cities of mecca and medina has called what is going on with these radicals a civil war within islam. maybe barack obama can't fathom that but if king of della can i don't see why we can't talk about it as well. there are millions of muslims around the world who understand what radical islamic terrorism is. they experienced it and don't like it anymore than we do. >> i am wondering if this speech was enough to move donald trump's poll numbers. they have been sagging increasingly since the nominating convention. with the speech enough to stay on message, to convince people he is serious, he can be presidential or does he have
7:09 am
more work to do? >> there is more work to do. hillary clinton and her campaign would just as soon not have a debate on substantive issues and it has been a mistake not to take her on on that. i don't think a majority of the american people want barack obama's third term. they are sick of the wretched economic policies, domestically, and retreat of ama around the world and ife were to take on hillary's promise to be obama's third term it would be a winning strategy. dagen: he still leaves her slightly in polls on the issue of terrorism, the economy and terrorism. >> as he should because her policy is obama's and it has failed. >> joint military efforts with us and syria is closed. what do you expect from this partnership? with us relations with russia?
7:10 am
>> i don't understand how the russians can be saying that since they are backing the assad regime. i don't know what they mean. this is a very complicated battlefield. the obama administration has been so ardent in its support of the iran nuclear deal they haven't wanted to do anything to achieve their stated goal of overthrowing assad for some years, clarity on that would be a big step forward. >> the extreme vetting, a lot of questions, critics are saying details of this extreme vetting are vague. did you like what he proposed on that front? >> leaving the term aside what he proposed is neither unprecedented nor anything to be concerned about. facing radical ideology we are entitled to protect our citizens, it is in the immigration and naturalization act right now, to become a
7:11 am
citizen, be a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the constitution of the united states and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the united states, it is already written into law. sandra: good to have you here. coming up, we wish we could cut our commute time but now you can with technology that talks to the traffic lights. what we mean by that straightahead. speaking of new technology snapchat can help you draft the perfect weekend agenda. more on the latest acquisition that makes it all possible. note

>> the concept of self driving cars is a hit with tech and auto companies but autonomous tractor-trailers may hit the highway first. the advances are fascinating to many, 2 million professional truck drivers are keeping their eyes on the technology for a much different reason, job security.
7:21 am
the president and ceo of the american trucking association, good to have you. how close are we to trucking companies rolling up fully functional semi autonomous rigs? >> we are a ways out but the technology is being tested in the united states and europe. it comes down to what the fcc decides as soon as the summer as to whether it dedicates spectrum, if it goes to safety and not the cable industry we have the ability to connect vehicles, not only vehicle to vehicle technology communications but vehicle to infrastructure. that is a necessary foundation to making autonomous vehicle technology possible. sandra: what percentage stand to lose their jobs as these tracks need at least one person to
7:22 am
operate it. >> don't see this as a potential jobless issue. it could improve job growth, we are facing a chronic driver shortage. we are looking at 50,000 drivers short for our stry. that projection goes to 125,000 x 2024. if this technology can serve as an enabler we might bring more drivers into the industry making them more productive and enhancing skill set. not just drivers but maintenance technicians that would have to service this technology. this could be an uptick, not a job loss. >> new technology comes along, they have been afraid, how do you -- creates more jobs, then
7:23 am
it helps lose. how can people be optimistic in your sector but across the broader economy when they see automation increasing? >> don't think we should be afraid of technology. there is upside including increased safety and it is the vehicle that hit the trailer of semi tractor-trailer. those vehicles ha communicating, and they lost their life. and improve emissions, the amount of fuel burned, the ability to reduce congestion. these are all good things that come to the motoring public but we need to look at cybersecurity, privacy issues and a lot of unknowns that need to be answered. we should be cautious and make certain we get it right.
7:24 am
this is about everyone who drives on the road, be certain the technology is an enabler and not something that causes a bigger problem. >> explain how this works. i can see how one of these trucks can go over long stretches on highways without a driver but how do you get around city neighborhoods or plant facilities where a driver has to make small judgments about traffic lights or backing up or slowing down when another car comes nearby. walk us through how it works. what does the technology do? >> in terms of safety, and communicate with other vehicles, a potential for rear end accidents, and paces traffic in a more even pace and reduces the congestion that impacts fuel burn, improves safety but on the
7:25 am
long haul, blind spot detection, automatic emergency braking, these are all on vehicles today including trucks. is the ability to connect them, but you always have to have the driver in the cab to take over and navigate situations in congested traffic in cities and trying to maneuver in tight spots, the driver has to be a part of that decisionmaking so it is a shared responsibility between the driver and the benefits of the technology. dagen: how the truckers feel about this? >> like the industry in general, watching it, see the value it could bring to the industry, make them safer, make them more productive, eliminating congestion is a good thing for drivers. we lose $49 billion a year sitting in traffic. imagine the impact that has on the driver let alone the economy
7:26 am
and consumer. if those costs get passed on to you and me starts with the driver and making them more productive during their day and not having them sit in traffic and technology can help solve that problem and bring more people into this and not push them away. sandra: what are we talking costwise for these trucks? >> that is still unknown. it depends on the infrastructure that is put in place by the truck oems that build vehicles and auto oems that design the technology. of the fcc awards the spectrum to safety about the cable industry, they have the ability to trade a backbone that could be affordable, could be internet-based for instance, the amount of technology in our phones is considerable, it knows where we are, staying in our cars with gbs, connecting the vehicles is key in terms of bringing down the cost. we are cautious, we want to see what that looks like and the
7:27 am
overall costs will be long-term. sandra: thanks for chatting with us about it, you sound optimistic about the changes to the trucking industry. up next, dramatic rescues across louisiana's floodwaters rise to devastating levels, we are tracking the latest details straight ahead. outrage over jk rowling's sold-out play, what left harry potter fans fuming, straight ahead. .

7:33 am
out all members of the sympathizers, of terrorist groups we must also screen out any hostile attitudes toward our country or its principles. or who believe that sharia law, should supplant american law. >> those who do not believe in our constitution, or who support bigotry hatred will not be admitted, for immigration into our country. >> donald trump also took another step back, from his proposed ban on muslim immigration the one that created so much controversy months ago when he firtargeted t defined proposed restrictions on immigration. >> as soon as i take office i will ask the state department, and the department of homeland security to identify a list of regions who are adequate screening cannot take place. >> we will stop processing

7:35 am
sandra: one of many subtle suggestions, thank you. . >> turning to the tragedy in louisiana devastating flooding to death of at least seven people, and forcing the rescue more than 20,000 worst flooding in baker greensberg and baton renewing let's bring in fema director he former michael brown for the latest what is happening here what are your thoughts on the search and response that is going on there in the state of louisiana? >> well, there is the response has been incredible, i mean you never compared disasters when disaster hits you it is worse that could happen there have been 2308,000 rescues so far louisiana national guard the department of wildlife frankly just people that have flat bottom boats on their own rescuing people that compares to 60,000 plus rescues during hurricane katrina, so this is something the state is able to
7:36 am
handle doing a very good job of it quite frankly i am impressed with the governor, and the steps that he has taken to help these folks ex. sandra: good to hear you say that michael, the flat bottom boats selfless acts from residents there we've got video of one that has gone viral, of some men that were out in one of their own flat bottom boats, that they found a woman who was sinking in her car with her dog, there he is. he jumps in i mean seconds mattered here and to think that this is one o of tens of thousands of rescues average citizen trying to help people look at area you we're in what is cleanup of this area going to look like after the search and rescue efforts conclude? >> well, i heard during the teas a comment about the worst isn't over because we always tell people that once the floodwaters recede, the disasters not over because people are then going to discover that they their homes the drywall has been
7:37 am
destroyed, the homes are going to be very dangerous, power lines are going to be down so this kind of flooding disaster is the kind of disaster that frankly the news media tends to go away once dramatic pictures -- rescues are gone. >> shocked me lack of coverage the images of babies that need milk, clothing and diapers, and shelters they are overwhelmed with people. >> well i have a theory about that when a disaster of this size which is significantly smaller than hurricane katrina was, there is the lack of a focal point during katrina, you had a focal point the super dome that drove in national media local media and here what you have, you have something that byes localized spread out it is difficult for media to convey exactly that these people are suffering just as people suffering any kind of flood it doesn't draw the tension a widespread
7:38 am
90,000-square mile disaster like katrina would attract. >> i read an interesting story about how a nearby new orleans airbnb has waived fees for people that might need assistance for arab arab owners to open homes a section people don't have to pay looking for free housing how has new orleans area right that area in louisiana really come together and changed since hurricane katrina to really bond together, and by there for one another to help save each other? >> well, it is exactly what you just said. any time that a disaster occurs, there are always problems, because that is the nature of a disaster what we tend to not focus on, is exactly what you are talking about, and that is american citizens helping american citizens, and that happens and it happened in every disaster that i ever handled it happens in disasters in the past, it will always happen because that is the very nature of
7:39 am
american citizens we just gravitate to helping one another. dagen: dagen mcdowell do you have a sense how many had flood insurance if any? again people very often even if eligible won't buy it. >> something i tried to i understand of a out this morning i can't get numbers here is what concerns me. if you have a mortgage there is a probably one hundred percent chance that mortgage holder is going to require that you get flood insurance, if you are in a flood insurance zone. but what we're going to find out is a lot of people that don't have mortgages, they rent or something they are not going to have flood insurance, and then going to find all of this damage they are going to look around homeowners isn't going to cover it fema will come in areas declared federal disaster the money familya provides not near enough people are going to find out that their suddenly going to have catastrophic costs there is nothing that is going to make them whole again.
7:40 am
and they are going to have to rebuild on their own. >> will you bring those numbers to us when you have them it does seem an outstanding issue how many people were covered, but ensured he homeowners 5,000 names nola web site reporting this with national flood insurance program 2 hundred million dollars in payments obviously far from over. but as we continue to look at images expect it to get worse is the hard part to fathom i am like -- >> right, it will get worse because the weather reports are continue to have flooding we have the interstate closed areas between, baton renewing saiblt tamiami parish things can't to get worse i emphasize again people forget that once these floodwaters recede go away, the second half of this disaster starts to occur, and that is when people find that their homes are structural
7:41 am
unsound engineers come in find buildings structural unsound. >> you say state response good the federal response stotsto th so far. >> kind of good news i know sounds strange psychological from me but the good news is the state has been able to handle this so far, on its own. that is what we want. because what tends to happen if is federal government comes in, if we become too dependent upon federal government always moving in, when disaster occurs, that weakens the response state and local governments, so i would say kudos to the state of louisiana, for being able to handle this on their own, so far. sandra: much more to come michael brown thank you for joining us this morning on that. >> you bet. sandra: coming up pokémon go cracking down on cheaters how the wildly popular game is vowing to ban dishonest for life. >> is it deep dish dominos

8:04 am
for the rise of isis, while hillary clinton seems painting trump to be unfit to be president, do you think does hillary clinton claim of having more experience does thisake her more qualified? >> hillary clinton has been secretary of state already, claims to have traveled several million miles, it is very difficult to think of a single accomplishment that she has done, any trouble spot in the world that has been made better, not even a piece conference not even any kind of summit or discussion, all we know is that the effect of all these attractivelies has been to personally enrich clintons as well could haveers of the clinton foundation the experience is issue doesn't seem to have gotten america very much. >> we know this that the fbi is set to give congress notes from interview with hillary clinton during investigation her use of a private e-mail server in her home, dinesh what could we learn from notes what do you think they will
8:05 am
reveal what instigation into private e-mail server be relaunched. >> i think missing element in this whole investor controversy has been what is hillary clinton's motive. in other words takes a great deal of trouble to do this people like hill got extensive briefings on nature of classified information for a reason i think the reason was, that she wanted to conduct a certain kind of private foreign policy for the personal benefit of the clintons, this is the aspect that has not been looked into, it is the aspect that was skimmed over by comey in infamous exoneration speech. >> i want a panel in here as well dinesh first to this news house republicans detailing perjury allegations against hillary clinton in letter to justice department saying quote the four pieces of sworn testimony by secretary clinton described herrin are herrin are
8:06 am
income patible will take probability action if necessary could tle about something preventing the process from moving forward. >> it would have been much better for fbi do to do rt than house republicans to remove any paint of partisan vendetta against hill both clintons pathological liars lie about obviously things, and in some way dare us to camp them to believe something is going to happen when they do. >> it is dagen mcdowell if you look at the dealings that we know about, involving the clinton foundation, who paid speeches to the president, who at the same time these entities would have business is in front of the state department, i mean it is almost by design, that these relationships are so implicated that it is such a morass, it is hard to explain it to the american people, and it doesn't resonate with them when they go to vote.
8:07 am
>> i think that there is a simple kind of three step procedure that clintons followed dutifully step one bill clinton goes in he gets 500 or 700,000 dollars ridiculous exaggerated fee appears a down payment hill moves american policy in line with what donor wants tens of mills into clinton foundation three step amaze is clinton modus on problemedi you can see it again and again and again, so it is detailed in effective may, i think the american peep wouople would gett is going on. >> are we going to learn about clinic foundation dealings with foreign leaders or foreign contributors before the election that could trip her up or do we basically know what we're going to know about the foundation at this point? >> well i think the information about the foundation is out there, in "clinton cash" and my book
8:08 am
hillary's america i put a couple episodes in the he movie some information is out there, part of it is that the media although they reported the story initially kind of dropped it they are not following up on it. and, therefore, there is probable a great deal more information to be had. >> dinesh, i am wondering is this enough we've had story after story after story of hillary clinton everything going on then this addition of perjury charges but is it enough because yes, very much did isliked unfavorable numbers very high but she is the second highest unfavorable numbers behind donald trump what is this is going to lead to in november, either one getting elected both so unfavorable by american people what do they do with when is you what issue we going to see straw that breaks camel's back with hill. >> orderly enough at this point it is sort of trump's election to lose seems odd thing to say but what i mean
8:09 am
if trump can cross a minute threshold of saying to american people you know what i maybe on outsiders i might be overfrank at times but nevertheless, i am a fundamentally senses i believe guy can be trusted with defendant and foreign policy we saw reagan accused of a warmonger crazy inexperienced will blow up the world the moment reagan was able to sort of convey i am not the guy that my critics are painting me out to be, there was a massive solicit toward reagan, the very last weeks before election. >> do you think his speech did that helped people see him more sensible do you think his foreign policy peach did that. >> foreign policy speech is rattling some republicans, republicans have been did you go in with you may say the formula or model of american foreign policy, since the cold war, and what trump is saying that those cold war commitments need to be reexamined, i think he is quite right about this, so he
8:10 am
needs to show intelligently how he is going to move american foreign policy i think american people will see that refreshing overdue reexamination. >> dinesh d'souza how is film doing at this point. >> film is great the pop political film of the year already in the top 10 political were documentaries of all time michael moore kind of king of genre i am glad giving him a run for his money. >> we will leave there it dinesh d'souza thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> all right coming up the storm that brought devastating floods to louisiana putting thousands out of homes making it to another state more where it is heading next google ready to face-off with apple's face time latest on video chatting wars is this something you might use? we will chat about it next.

8:33 am
at that time you said that you felt that the economic indicators suggested thatted fed proceed cautiously in additional rate increases which could start as early as the next meeting in september, but since then we've had another very strong jobs report. what do you think now? >> i don't think my views have changed very much. i think we're looking for growth in the second half of the year that will be stronger than the first half and some acceleration in the growth outlook. the labor market continues to generate job gains with 190,000 the last three months so i think we're edging closer towards, you know, the point in time where it will be appropriate, i think, to raise interest rates further. as i said in the speech i gave last month. there are reasons to think that monetary policy isn't particularly stimulative right now we only grew at the rate in the first half of the year. don't have a lot of monetary policy tightening to do over
8:34 am
time, but the labor market is getting tighter and we're starting to see signs of wage gains, starting to accelerate so i think we're getting closer to that point in time where it will be appropriate to actually raise rates again. >> and the other part of your mandate is to get inflation up to a reasonable level. you have a 2% target. where does the inflation read stand? are you closer to target? >> we're getting closer in the sense that headline inflation is drifting up a little bit because earlier declines from energy prices are dropping out of the year over year calculations, but core inflation which takes out energy and food because it's a more reliable indicator of the underlying trend, have been flat. the inflation hasn't changed much. the key question, are we going to get enough growth to put pressure on resources, pushing up wages and up towards 2%. so far we seem to be on that trajectory and see how it plays out in coming months.
8:35 am
>> could you see a rate hike potentially in september? you also have meetings in november and december? >> yeah, i think it's possible. i think we'll have to see how the data falls and where we are in terms of, you know, the broad supports for the economy. i think the economy is in okay shape. i think that consumption doing quite well, real income gains are pretty sturdy, job gains are sturdy. backness and business fixed investment, perhaps the election urn certainty may exacerbate that for a while, but in general, i think the economy is going to be better in the second half than the first half. the labor market will continue to tighten. in that environment i think we're closer to the day when we are going to have to snug up interest rates a little bit. that's good news. if we get to the point where we want to raise up interest rates, that means we're closer to our objective of maximum
8:36 am
sustainab sustainable. >> and measures for rate hikes suggest markets don't think the fed is going to raise rates anytime before 2017. you warned in your speech last month that investors might be getting too complacent about the possibility of rate hikes in 2016. does that still stand? >> oh, absolutely. you look at the futures markets for the federal funds rate, the rate that we target, has basically one rate hike priced through the end of 2017. i find that too low. i think the market is complacent about the need for gradually snugging up short-term interest rates for the next year or so. >> let's talk about the markets. we've seen record highs in the major indexes and the bond markets are still very strong, still very low interest rates. are you concerned at all about any bubbles forming in asset markets? >> that's something you look at
8:37 am
all the time. obviously, if you have a financial asset bubble, the collapse of that bubble can lead to stress on the financial system and potential have bad effects on the macro economy, but i don't see anything now that's particularly disturbing. i would argue one area which looks a little stretched to me is the bond market. and what's happening in the rest of the world, we have quantitative easing programs in place in japan, europe, the united kingdom and that demand for long-term assets is creating a search for yield globally and some of that is spelling over into the u.s. for example, the 10-year treasury yield 1 1/2% in an environment where we think we're making progress towards our objectives. we think that unemployment is going to trend back, and 11 1/2 seems low in that. >> back to the elections, you
8:38 am
have two meetings before the elections, there's mythology around the fed and whether or not it raises interest rates ahead of elections. will the upcoming election have any factor, do you think, in whether or not to keep rates the same or to possibly raise them? >> no, i don't think the election would weigh on us one way or the other. i think, as i said, if we decide to raise rates it's because the economy is doing well, not just we're somehow worried about inflation and overshooting in a major way. it's not the beginning of a tightening cycle designed to squeeze economic growth. it would be the start of-- it would be a continuation of gradual get back to a neutral policy setting and today we think that it's accommodative. >> there are some economists and you mentioned earlier, who believe the uncertainty around the election is possibly having an impact on the economy. you mentioned business estimates have been, very, very week.
8:39 am
is the election having an effect on economic growth? >> historically people's academics have looked at this and found that election uncertainty does have consequences for business because with the uncertainty high there's incentive to delay until the uncertainty is resolved. but this is probably not going to have a consequence for the outlook, we will have the election, the uncertainty will be resolved and move forward. at worst we're deplacing from one place to the another. >> so politics do not play-- >> i don't think they enter into. >> yesterday one of your colleagues, john williams, president of the san francisco federal reserve suggested in a paper that the fed change its 2% inflation target to actually raise it to something higher than 2% given the current economic conditions, financial conditions and impact of fed
8:40 am
policy so far in a slow growth environment. in effect, that would be to allow the fed to keep rates lower for longer. what do you think of that idea? >> i think the issue that john was trying to get at is the fact if the neutral short-term interest rate, consistent with a neutral monetary policy, is lower than in the past, the peek federal funds rate would be lower than in the past and there won't be much scope to lower that federal funds rate, the next time an adverse shock hit. in that environment if you have a little more inflation there will be more room to adjust monetary policy. i agree with john's conclusion, the short-term interest rate is lower than in the past and does suggest to think about how we're going to make sure we have enough monetary policy tools and fiscal trools to get out of the next recession.
8:41 am
my own view, it's premature talking about raising the target. there are other ways to cope with an economic down turn. one thing we have, we have a number of tools that have been shown to affect the economy. for guidance, quantitative easing, the portfolio. i think that, coupled with maybe a fiscal policy that takes on a larger rolen economic down turns might be stuff. so i think it's premature to jump to the notion that we need to raise the inflation target. finally, one other thing, the internation international, the markets went nuts with brexit. what is your assessment of the brexit situation? is the fed, are you and the fed concerned about the potential impact of brexit now on the global economy and on the effects on the u.s. economy and also, what do you think of what's going on in china, the slower growth there? >> i think in terms of brexit. the vote was a negative shot,
8:42 am
certainly to the u.k. economy and by extension, to the global economy, but the market response to brexit, which was quite negative in the short-term, was very short-lived so financial conditions globally have actually recovered and so you'd certainly say in the near term consequences from brexit on the global economy in terms of the effects on financial conditions have been, very, very modest. i think they're too soon to fully assess on the brexit economy. we know they'll have consequences to the u.k. economy and that's going to ripple back into the european economy, and also the questions of efficacy of monetary policy around the world, and will negative interest rates support global economic growth. so, my near term risk of brexit have diminished, but i think there are longer term questions that need to unfold. and your assessment? >> i think that the chinese economy was clearly going to slow over time for a number of reasons.
8:43 am
one, income reached levels where it typically occurs in an economy and number two, the democrat trends in china points to slower growth every time. so, i think expecting somewhat slower growth out of china is a completely reasonable view. they're getting slower growth, but it's still pretty good. it's running about 6 1/2% on a year over year basis and providing a stimulus to support at that growth so i don't see a near-term, you know, shock likely to emanate from china over the near term, but it's obviously something that we continue to look at. >> the growth right now, the forecast from the imf. >> it's like okay. it's continuing its pattern of maybe a little bit disappointing relative to forecast, but i would say you'd look at global growth and you'd say it's moderate. >> how does it get better? >> just tcontinue bank intervention-- >> there are a number of things that can be done. obviously, making sure that the
8:44 am
banking systems have sufficient capital and liquidity, i think, is important. one. things i think benefitted the united states is that we were very aggressive about forcing our banking system to be recapitalized so the banking system in the u.s. is actually providing a lot of support to the u.s. economy in terms of being able to supply credit to households and businesses. other countries have been slower in terms of restructuring their banking system, if they were more aggressive on that, that would be helpful. a lot of things can be done outside of monetary policy. one of the problems has been we've been relying too much on the monetary policy side and not enough on the rest of the government in terms of fiscal policy and in terms of structural reforms and in the united states there are a bunch of things that can be undertaken, immigration policy, tax reform, job retraining, all of these things could actually help pt economy over the medium term. we have an election coming up and those issues are on the table. bill dudley, thank you for joining us on fox business and
8:45 am

8:46 am
jumped out at me about this interview is he said, look at the 10-year, yields on 10-year treasury bonds at 1 1/2%, that's very low and effectively telling people to sell treasuries because he thinks the market is holding rates too low. dagen: it's a very big deal because we started this conversation about three hours ago talking about where has the money gone for individuals in particular, it's gone into treasury debt and out of stock funds. sandra: the economy in general will be better in the second half of this year, he says, if we raised rates it's good news, reflecting a stronger economy. >> he's optimistic about the second half. sandra: up next, one the of the leaders on self-driving cars, ford ceo mark fields joins us. ♪

8:51 am
transition from an auto to a mobility company, we're looking at autonomous vehicles and we feel strongly that autonomous vehicles can have almost the same significant impact on society like ford's moving assembly line did a hundred years ago. so, we're here to talk about our next step a little later this morning. >> mark, what do you tell people who have a difficult time with the concept of a self-driving car? >> listen, as we go forward in the future. folks will continue to drive and love to drive, there are others that driving is not a priority for them and so, our approach is not only to lead in what we call driver assist features that we have on the road today to assist people to drive, but also as we work towards fully autonomous vehicles and there's more and more interest around that. sandra: there certainly is. you see it in-- all over the tv and magazines and newspapers. it seems like we're talking about it every day. what's the reality of the situation though?
8:52 am
what percent of cars on the road five years from now will be autonomous vehicles? >> well, what you'll see coming is probably four or five years ago, the beginning of the decade, there will be some fully autonomous vehicles on the road and probably initially focused in cities, with are there's a lot of population, and there won't be probably broad availability beyond that until later in the decade, but clearly it's a priority for folks, they want to save time and do things other than drive particularly as they across cities and we want to lead that way. sandra: ford has seen an amazing turn around story in the recent years, what does it do specifically to your business, specifically to your company? >> we're in a very firm foundation. last year, we had record profits. first half of this year, record profits. as we go forward, we're maintaining our guidance, which is to have equal to or better
8:53 am
than our record profits last year. we are seeing some risk, but clearly as we continue to invest in our core, we see these knew opportunities around autonomous vehicles and mobility services and we're very excited about that to grow our business. sandra: as far as adding more jobs to the industry, what will the changes be there? >> well, as we look at our presence here in silicon valley, we're going to be doubling our work force to probably 300 professionals by the end of next year and more than doubling the size of our campus. as you can imagine, it's robot robotists, and we've attracted great talent and expect to do more as we go forward. sandra: taking a look at the growing auto sectors, concerns that sales have hit a plateau. europe has been tough. what's your outlook as far as sales? >> well, here in the u.s. we've said we've seen a softer than expected retail industry and
8:54 am
that's part of the reason we've flagged some risk to our guidance so we're still committed to our guidance in achieving that and seeing lower pricing and higher incentives. so we're taking a very proactive approach in the business and call them the way we see them. in europe, europe is still strong and seeing the impact of brexit in the u.k. and we're taking appropriate actions as well. sandra: everyone is trying to assess the state of the consumer in this country right now, mark, and you have yo ear to the ground when it comes to that. and as far as their spending habits are concerned. we just heard from a fed president who is suggesting we might see the short-term interest rates finally move up. he was optimistic about the second half. as a consumer here, what is your biggest concern and fear when you look at their spending habits? >> the consumer, when you look at their balance sheets and they're relatively good shape.
8:55 am
as it pertains to the auto industry, we have to remember that the auto industry had robust sales early on in the economic recovery. we were actually over indexing versus the general economy. what we're seeing now, as that growth is plateauing and as we're seeing the retail industry come down a little bit, we're seeing an intense level of competition. so i think the consumer is in good shape, but you know, we benefitted early on as an industry, the recovery and i think now we're a bit coming down off of that and we're preparing for that as a business. sandra: we have to leave it there. where are you seeing interest from consumers as far as the car demand. trucks, small cars, gas prices are low or suv's are back in popular demand? >> well, it's very clear that we started this trend starting four or five years ago. consumers are moving from passenger cars and small cars to small and medium sized suv's and pickup trucks. even across both--
8:56 am
you will an of the segments, consumers still want good gas mileage no matter the segment we're in. we're clearly seeing a shift in the marketplace to suv. >> not a frugal consumer, but a responsible one. mark fields, thank you. good luck with your announcement and looking forward to self-driving vehicles. >> thank you, sandra. sandra: final thoughts from our all-star panel after the break. if you have medicare parts a and b and want more coverage, guess what? you could apply for a medicare supplement insurance

>> i think we're looking for growth in the second half of the year. they will be stronger than the first half so some acceleration of the growth outlook and the market with 190,000 the last three months so i think we're edging closer towards the point in time where it will be appropriate, i think, to raise the interest rates further. sandra: all right. that was new york federal reserve president william dudley sitting down with our own peter barnes moments ago. jon hilsenrath is here, are we seeing a rate hike in is ept-- september. >> it depends on the jobs report between now and the next fed meeting. if that's over 200,000 there's a chance for a rate hike. dagen: the reaction in twitter, they'll never do that before an election and you all along have said-- >> that's a myth and something that he talked about that they wouldn't act. they have acted before elections and they would do it
9:00 am
again. sandra: one viewer when i tweeted out it's a major possibility, he responded l-o-l. i don't know if the market believes they'll do that. dagen, jon hilsenrath and kirsten, thank you for joining us. that does it for "mornings with maria". stuart varney are you there. >> trump stays on message and sticks with the script. looks like he's making a big effort again to rein himself in. good morning, everyone. a record high for stock and a tran attack in europe and another big hit. we'll start with politics. trump plows on. he's taking on the issues and using the prompter and taking a presidential approach.
