6:02 am
maria: what change from yesterday at 4:00 with the marquis at 400-point intraday decline at 153. dagen: the interest rate story will reign supreme with this budget buster that came out other republicans in congress, the two-year budget deal with the white house with the president's budget willing to tolerate deficits for years and years to come. a federal reserve no longer buying treasuries. that is a perfect storm for significantly higher interest rates. trade to volatility in nervousness. >> over three weeks in january january 2016. this happened on three days. it happened over six trading sessions. this is really episodic, everyone still trying to digest what really happened.
6:03 am
maria: we've been seeing trading down in the last couple of weeks. they've been showing weakness in nervousness for a month now. >> with a rising interest rate environment you can't have utilities trading at 30 times earnings and type trading at 25 times earnings. >> the new federal reserve chief adds to the uncertainty because it's all about interest rates, fighting, they think they know jay powell, but do they? maria: earnings continued to be strong. better than expected on the actual numbers at $1.31 per share. talking about earnings as well. wisconsin congressman paul ryan.
6:04 am

6:05 am
democrats. we've taken care of our military now have to fake roads, bridges, tunnels and more. negotiations on daca have begun. wouldn't it be great if we could finally after so many are solved the puzzle. this will be our last chance. there will never be another opportunity. march 5th is the deadline to do something on daca. joining us to weigh in is the editor-in-chief of the daily caller, christopher bedford. thank you for joining us. your take away on all this whether talking about the president's budget in the infrastructure plan yesterday or of course daca as well. >> daca, interests because everyone is talking about the march that deadline from the original extension and if congress can figure this out legislatively beforehand. another deadline we don't know yet. supreme court is meeting later this week to confirm or overturn
6:06 am
a ruling that daca has to say the president can change that. we don't also mean that before march of the administration hasn't asked for change into the deadline. they have been asked to withhold their decisions the timeliness up in the air. president trump has a good point when he says this is her best chance and definitely conservatives best chance to do immigration reform because daca brings democrats and republicans with moderates and liberals to the table and a few on comprehensive immigration reform nafta trade back and forth in daca is the thing of her everyone to the table. >> hi, chris. aaron omar. seven out of 10-degree on immigration reform. our democrats waking up to this thursday at negotiation year are they seeking their feet in the mud? >> they will stick their feet in the mud because they have really staked their whole party on
6:07 am
this. you didn't see nancy pelosi talking for eight hours on the house floor over any other issue whether we see a reform, military spending, it is their right to stay in the u.s. the party put its flag in the sale and they are not going to change. if republicans get them to the talking table paul stevens even more likely than chain migration reform and other things conservatives want to see gop push. >> one of the things i look at his the 2019 budget. i was surprised by this because the first budget president trump came out with was a skinny budget and everybody was up in arms on the democratic side congress and they came up with this budget deal or his plan and it's mostly signaling, but were you surprised at his budget and how he blew up the deficit and didn't care about it for 10 years? >> i wasn't too surprised because donald trump never ridden in a moment.
6:08 am
the whole campaign was building the wall to make mexico pay for it. i don't recall him talking about that. what shocked is a few days before the house and senate passed the idea of a two-year budget that absolute looser deficit. if republicans want to come back and be really didn't, they have to stand for something. they can't just give away and fill repealed about the care and expect their base to turn out and support them. dagen: president trump's agenda, chris, was progrowth. it was getting out of the way of business. based on the president's budget and what the republicans did which renders his budget for 2019 almost moot given the $300 billion spending increases from republicans, it is in progress because you have a government siphoning money away
6:09 am
from the private sector, taking more and more away from the private economy and feeding it into entitlement programs, things like $20 million in infrastructure spending and republicans budget outline from a week ago. have you read the fire? how do you justify those two things? >> you really can. everything they've promised on the campaign trail was absolutely busting through these caps in any spending, but the only victory they've had legislatively in washington than a decade as putting caps on and peered that they are willing to trade that for defense and what's funny about that is that they had to, but they do control the house and senate and white house and they could have pushed this issue forward and negotiated harder. you saw leadership drop on conservatives in the last
6:10 am
minute. then a few hours, six hours, 10 hours to push back and get messaging. but the leadership drop the budget i met with a couple people representing conservative offices and it was a little bit more like a week than a planning session because none of them had any idea how they could be leadership on this in the gop has given away another of their promises. maria: they will push back and say we needed to give military spending in their pen in order to do that we have to agree on other stuff. >> they have a massive fight on military spending just a few weeks before we see nancy pelosi and chuck schumer and neighbors them so badly in the public opinion. "the new york times" and republicans look get the blame for this. within 24 hours they had to admit they couldn't get the blame for this. everyone in the country knows the democrats fault. the gop didn't seem to take any courage from the tree that the american people showed they care
6:11 am
more about the military. they didn't take any lessons and acted like it never happened. maria:.com i guess so. two top republicans on the senate judiciary with questions on former obama national security adviser susan rice and herself an e-mail under their president trump's inauguration in the e-mail appears to be basically documenting a meeting two weeks earlier with then president obama and fbi director jim comey and sally yates about the russian election hacking. he notes in the e-mail obama repeatedly emphasized he wants every aspect handled by the book. our senators chuck grassley and lindsey graham right to find that odd? what is your take on the e-mail? >> i love those two have been working away when everyone else has been yelling and screaming and carrying on back-and-forth, those who have been investigating in releasing
6:12 am
interesting news that we don't she was involved in the unmasking and she lied about it on television and she was basically a trap for the incoming administration at every level. one of the last actions she took was a memo to her self to say we are going by the book and i'm innocent and the president is not trying to destroy the trump administration. it's like the lady protested too much especially when we've seen she was actively involved in not necessarily doing things by the book at least according to the spirit of the law. >> so the president is getting an underrated. they start figuring out whatever they've been putting around, whatever barriers they put in the way for the trump administration, they figure out they are about to get caught, so she sends herself an e-mail writing notes down that obama play by the book?
6:13 am
>> is hard to tell exactly what she meant, but it looks to me like it is a little letter of innocents left behind in the place easily discoverable for investigators who dug deep enough into this. maybe it would've made more sense if she's been running around or on the road, but her last day in the white house, last day in power to put something on the record and she chose to lay out the innocence of everyone involved. we know she lied about it and not everyone involved is necessarily msn. he comes across as the senators called an unusual. maria: wow, have to keep ahead of these people. it's incredible. we will see you soon. christopher bedford at all be sitting down with paul ryan later in the show. we will get into the budget issues we will discuss in a few moments with paul ryan, speaker of the house. hundreds of jobs are cut up the amazon seattle offices.

6:24 am
>> we see flows positive. people take advantage. if you think about the interest rate hikes that we've had come me go back over the last 25 years. 1994 we had six rate hikes, but there is a two-year period between 2004 in 2006 where we have 17 rate hikes. so i think people should hang tight and buy the dips. >> of looking at this market and not every sector is cut the same. pepsi has, indeed disappointing outlook switches below expectations. where should investors start to look into the market right now. not everything will be a bargain and they should start picking and choosing their favorite parts of the market right now. >> i like i.t., health care where we tend to find the

6:26 am
congress that is increased deficit spending at a time when the demand for treasuries is shrinking dramatically. that is what is causing concern. where do you find havens in that kind of environment? >> you are right. it's a little different although generally speaking we have small markets globally. we are still a safe haven globally when i talk about u.s. markets. we still have increasing profits for the most part throughout most of our sectors. we have counterbalancing issues as well as you mention a few of things in the fed, but also i believe tax bills helpful for companies with profits and increasing tax law particularly sectors that are heavy in high tax. increase expenditures and are in need, we see increased demand for borrowing, sour economy still strong. the question is whether we will go to keep pace with the government changes.
6:27 am

6:34 am
correct about that, the largest plus-up in military budget in almost 40 years and we cannot recover in one or two budgets, we have to sustain the increases for about 5 to 6 years, it took us a long time to get in the desperate situation but there's money in the budget clearly to fix the problem, we have to grow the size of the military, we have to fix our equipment that we have, so much of it is in disrepair right now, we just need the noun buy repair parts and as you mechanicsed in intersection, we need future capacity that we don't have now and money in the budget to get us there, the russians and chinese have closed on us from technology perspective. we do not have the decided advantage that we used to have. maria: yesterday we had david stockman and he was upset about the budget numbers, what about the readiness, lack of our military, what about all of these accidents that we keep

6:37 am
neighborhood of 16,000 fight irs in syria and iraq hiding, wait to go conduct terrorist activities and wait to go reemerge particularly if the united states and coalition forces leave. just as what happened in iraq when president obama pulled us all out. that would be a huge mistake, we cannot do that. when the middle east strategy, what we have to recognize, the number one threat in the middle east is iranians who are trying to establish control of the middle east. they've got lebanon politically, militarily, they have most of syria, begin to go encroach on israel, dead serious about establishing bases in syria to fire missiles into israel, that's why the israelis are pushing back, they have some political influence in iraq that we don't have and they also want control of yemen, i think it's time now to stand up some kind of arab nato and recognize that we have got to push back on the iranians particularly with the
6:38 am
windfall of money that they received because of nuclear deal and return of sanctions and money that was tied in international u.s. banking, we've got to stop these guys with their aggressive and maligned behavior. maria: is it going to work? even when the deal wasn't even signed, they were still saying death to america. >> they started in 1979, they say it every single year. two thicks that they want to achieve to be able to control the middle east and they talk about it every single year, one is drive the united states out of the middle east and that's what they are trying to do in syria and other places and number two, destroy the state of israel, they are absolutely 100% consistent on that and that's what they are about and we have to recognize for that and we have to stand up against it with our allies. maria: real quick, a word on this budget because we are taking a look at the appropriations now, that's the next step here, what should be the appropriate end result for some of this increase in
6:39 am
spending in terms of appropriations, where are the needs, general, from your standpoint? >> well, first of all, the overall amount for 2018 as agreed to should be $700 billion, that includes the base budget and what we spend for contingency operations overseas and for 2019 it should be somewhere what we agreed to, $716 billion and initially, we've got to get out there and fix this equipment that's in such disrepair that you have the dimension. that's essential, we have to provide pilots with hours of training and others that need training done and begin with future capability. our people know what to do. i'm encouraged by this. the number two guy by the defense department is a businessman. if we use business practices, defense department is not a business, but many of its

will be with us. the dow industrials are off of the lows, down 140 points right now, 2/3 of 1% lower. the nasdaq and s&p 500 are also negative. there was a big day yesterday oven the upside. yesterday the dow was up 400 points following the worst week in two years. the s&p and a nasdaq ended up 1.5% yesterday. kevin kelly, your take on the volatility. >> i think this is an okay thing to happen. it's fine. i know people are freaking out. we went from a price to earnings multiple on the market which was elevated at 20. after the selloff we went to 16.5 which is below the average, the his tore l cal historical a. we're actually getting our sea legs, given the fact that some companies are going to win, some companies are going to lose in the current tax rate environment where debt -- the cost of capital is going to be going up.
7:04 am
this is okay. the last two corrections we've had, we've gone down to 15.5 p.e. multiple. we're getting there but it takes a while to digest how investors are assessing risk in this market. >> dagen: how do you explain what happened last week? >> nobody can explain what happened. volatility was suppressed for such a a long period of time. we went 410 days without a 3% move. 410 days. >> maria: this is not just about that. dagen, you have talked about budget issues and talked about the fact that we are seeing spending out of control and interest rates are going up. and you think that this market's -- it's not a coincidence. you think what's troubling the market is the fact we're looking at trillion dollar deficits. >> dagen: it's the deficits. i don't take fault with the tax reform and the tax cuts. we do need an economy growing faster, maybe growing 3% which was in trump's budget yesterday, the president's budget, to raise
7:05 am
revenue in the country. when you have the fed -- again, it comes down to the federal reserve is reducing its balance sheet. it started -- it was only $10 billion a month during the last quarter of 2017. he see, it goenow it's $20 bill. then it's 30, then it's 40. by the last quarter of this year it will be $50 billion every month. that's demand for treasuries that is dis disappearing as the supply goes through the roof in part because of what the republicans did last week with the two year budget deal. we finally have wage inflation. we he have a new federal he reservreserve chief on top of all of this. there's a concern about what will be the impact on interest rates. i think that scared investors. it goes to what you're willing to pay for stocks. >> maria: i think it's a great point. rates are going higher and it will cost more in terms of holding on -- in terms of the
7:06 am
interest payments. let's turn to the budget and the massive 2019 budget we got details on yesterday. congress received the spending proposal, including a $1.5 trillion infrastructure investment. in a tweet earlier, the president touted his plan which revicrevitalizes america's crumg infrastructure. he said the plan received great reviews by everyone except the democrats. after many years we're taking care of the military. now we have to fix roads, bridges, tunnels and more. let's bring in mike rounds right now. senator rounds, thank you for joining us this morning. >> good morning. i appreciate the opportunity to visit. >> maria: let's talk about this budget you're a member of the senate environment and public works committee. how will senate play for the expensive infrastructure plan and what's your take-away, knowing we're talking about trillion dollar deficits for 10 years out and counting?
7:07 am
>> i think the earlier discussion was right on when we talk about the interest rates and what happens as the interest rates go up. interest rates go up by a quarter point, long-term, it means about $50 billion more per year that we have to pay. so this is a significant issue that we have to address. but i'm going to go into the infrastructure stuff. what the president wants to do i think is the right thing in terms of fixing the infrastructure we've got in this country and improving it. it's one of the advantages we've had over the rest of the world is transportation opportunities, the energy opportunities. right now we're talking about communications, power supplies and so forth. i'm not sure that with the amount of money that he wants to invest we're going to get to $1.5 trillion to $1.7 trillion in total investment but i think that's a very good goal. i like that goal better than a trillion dollars over that same time period. i think this will push investment. the challenge is how do you get other people to invest when we put in about 20% of it at the federal level.
7:08 am
i think that's going to be a good challenge all the way around. >> maria: you say we were right about our discussion. what does that mean in terms of these trillion dollar deficits? how are you going to get your arms around the debt? when did this become -- when does this become a real priority? >> that's one of the things that brought a lot of us to washington. the first thing you have to do in order to get your handle on the entire debt -- remember, we were running deficits before we did the tax plan. we did the tax plan and we're working right now with the administration on reducing the bureaucratic nightmare in washington which are regulatory problems which increase the cost of doing business. we understand that unless we have a growing gdp, unless we have an economy that is rising with job opportunities for young people, unless we have that happening, we can't dig ourselves out of the mess we got ourselves into. in part, because even if you were to take the entire defense budget away and all of what we call the nondefense discretionary money, even if we took it away and didn't spend a
7:09 am
penny on it, we would not balance the budget. the reason is because about 72% of the entire budget is on auto pilot. that's medicare, medicaid, social security, and interest on the debt. so the discussion that you had earlier about what happens if you go up even a quarter point per -- let's just say the federal reserve says we're going to raise the interest rates by a quarter point. and everybody looks at that and says that's not a lot of money. but if you look at $20 trillion over an extended period of time, you're talking, what, $50 billion more per year. and that's not $50 billion that's going into infrastructure. it's not going into defense. it's just interest on that debt. so you're exactly right on. but the only way that we can get our handle on this, and this is put into the bill right now, there's a select commit that i was established that's going to study for the first time in years the budget process. there's a group of us that have said look, we're fighting each other over whether or not we ought to spend money on defense
7:10 am
and nondefense discretionary items, education, health and so forth. the largest part of the entire budget is on auto pilot. nobody is managing it and that's the part that's going up like crazy. so let's get our handle on this thing. give us the tools to fix the mess we've got ourselves in. that means the entire budget, not just the defense and nondefense discretionary. >> dagen: all you republicans recognize it. i can't tell you how many congressmen have come on the air in the last week and said well, we recognize that entitlements are the problem. what are you going to do about it? the market i'm telling you is going to make a decision for you in terms of interest rates spiking while you're sitting around in committees trying to figure out how to right-size medicare and medicaid and social security. and by the way, the house at least passed what was a giant
7:11 am
medicaid reform last year and it was some of your colleagues in the senate in the republican party that got in the way of it and said no, with a big thumbs down. >> well, first of all, i will tell you that there are more and more people that understand how critical it is that we actually manage those major programs. medicare and medicaid in particular. we can fix social security. i'm convinced we can fix social security. we can protect the benefits that are there. long-term, if you really want medicare and medicaid to survive, you've got to start managing them. we've got a pension system in south dakota started in 1974, the same year as the budget act started at the federal level but every year in south dakota we manage that pension system. if you look at it, it's probably the best managed in the united states today. people don't look at it as a third rail. they look at is as an expectation that it's our job, to manage it and make it better. we're not doing that when it comes to social security or medicare or medicaid. for those individuals that don't want to fix it, they shouldn't be here. we have to fix those programs.
7:12 am
and the only way you can do it is to have accountability and responsibility. but if you look at the committee structures we've got in the united states congress today, there's lots of committees with lots of finger pointing back and forts had. forth. i like the select committee idea. >> maria: let me ask you about the immigration debate, senator. your chamber began an open ended debate on immigration. the president weighed in on the debate this morning. he he tweeted negotiations on daca have begun. republicans want to make a deal. democrats say they want to make a deal. wouldn't it be great if we could finally solve the daca puzzle. this is our last chance. there will never be another opportunity, march 5th. what are you expecting in terms of a daca deal with your colleagues across the aisle? >> the message that we've been sharing back and forth is number one, we recognize that even if you can get something out of the senate, the president's got to be able to approve it and the house will never touch it unless the president's on-board. he identified four pillars.
7:13 am
we're going to start with border security. we think we can work that through and get what the administration needs in order to do the border security that is a signal that as a country we can protect the borders we've got today. second of all, we will address the daca issue. i think the president came way forward from a lot of people from what they thought he would do. i think that was a positive message to democrats saying look, we he can actually work and find common ground and there is a sense that these young people really could add to our job force which is going to add to our economy long-term. we need the workforce. in order to do that, there are things that pop up. and that is how we handle the currencies testimony of current system of immigration. it's a matter of identifying the nuclear of the family but stop what the president called chain migration which slows down the ability of other people who are legally in line today and are trying to come here with good
7:14 am
trades and so forth and merit and we've got to get a handle so those people with merit can come in and get in line and expedite the movement through the process. >> maria: we'll leave it there. great to have your insights this morning. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> maria: coming up, will general motors steer away from south korea? the automaker closing at least one of its plants in the country. details on the new plan out of gm coming up. opening new doors for what a robot can do. how boston dynamics is teaching its robo dogs a new trick. lovely. back in a minute. today, the new new york is sparking innovation. you see it in the southern tier with companies that are developing powerful batteries that make everything from cell phones to rail cars more efficient. which helps improve every aspect of advanced rail technology. all with support from a highly-educated workforce and vocational job training.

president's portrait is as famous an artist as president obama was. he's an extremely famous artist, not the first lady's portrait but the president's portrait. and he h takes old master's stye and paints contemporary black men, even people he sees on the street. the genesis of his painting, he he found someone's mug shot in the streets of harlem and so he puts them in these situations. it also h evoke's the presidents hawaiian background and roots. the painter is also a black man. so it was a magnificent choice in many ways. >> maria: i like what michelle obama said. she said she wants little girls to look up and look at somebody that looks like them so they know they can reach first lady of the united states. >> dagen: my art history degreey

>> maria: welcome back. navigating trade as brexit negotiations forge on, global trade remains a focal point for global leaders, including theresa may. the u.s. is prepared to negotiate. joining us right now is the trade commissioner for north america, anthony philipson. thank you for joining us. >> thank you so much. >> maria: we want to get clarity on when we'll hear more in terms
7:25 am
of the plans for brexit. when i was actually in europe just recently, there was a lot of discussion about how the u.k. is the underperformer and it's largely because theresa may hasn't shown she has the mandate, there's too much waffling going on. start there. when do you expect the details of the plan to leave the european union to be finalized and communicated? >> it's a great pleasure to be here and have the chance to talk bouabout this topic. the process has begun. we're into the negotiation. we began it in march last year when we launched the article 50 process. there was substantial negotiations last year, reaching the agreement. now we start talking about implementation and we will also start talking about the future partnership and people will always want more detail. business will always want more detail. they hate uncertainty. >> maria: they can't make their plans. they've got to either stay in london or go to germany. >> we talk to the business community a lot. we have made clear in terms of
7:26 am
the implementation period, we expect to provide a period of certainty going beyond march 2019, a shared ambition between the u.k. and the e.u. and there is a shared ambition between the e.u and the u.k. part the future partnership. this will happen over the next few weeks and months. >> where are you on the corporate tax plan? there's a plan to take it down to 17% over the next three years. is that a contentious issue in negotiating brexit? i know there's been some issues with ireland recently and you have a third party super state which is the e.u. invoking -- it's trying to invoke its powers over sovereign states. where are you guys on the tax negotiation aspect of brexit? >> in terms of the overall negotiation, where we are is in terms of how do we work out the partnership in the future. it will be a partnership between the u.k. and the e.u. on the tax side, we have been -- this is a program of corporate tax reform that's been going on
7:27 am
he pre the ref republica refer. this is not an issue that is run out of brussels. all member states set their own tax. the e.u. wants to be clear we're not acting in a way out of kilter with the e.u. the u.k. needs to set a clear and effective tax regime that will be attractive for people to set up in the u.k. >> maria: what do you want to see from the u.s.? >> we want to see more of the same. the trade partnership is incredibly deep. they ouwhat we want to do as wee out of the e.u. is to take the relationship into the future, around the new technology like artificial intelligence, data, driverless vehicles, life sciences, financial services. these are areas of real sort of commonality between the u.k. and
7:28 am
u.s. we want to build that partnership for the future. >> thre theresa may is expectedo move the brexit divorce rate up three months. is that in the plans? >> we're in the middle of a negotiation. the prime minister said she expects the implementation period to last around two years. in e.u. in the initial framework proposed up until december 2020. that is the subject of the negotiation now. >> the reason i focused on trade is because everything is up in the air at this point. president obama had said a couple years ago, look, if the u.k. goes forward with brexit, they're going to be at the bottom of the line. where do you feel you are in terms of doing a bilateral deal with the u.s. in terms of trade? >> i think where we are is we're in the mix. there is a sort of dynamic conversation going on around the world about trade liberalization. in july last year the secretary of state for international trade, liam fox launched a trade

investment working group. they will talk about issues that will strengthen and deepen the relationship between our countries. both sides committed to this at the highest level. we know that we need to do it at the appropriate time and we know that some on this side will want to know where we'll end up with the e.u. the tracks will run alongside each other. we will push forward on all of them as fast as we can. >> maria: thanks for the update. >> thank you very much. >> maria: coming up, deficit hawks swooping in on the administration's new budget. i'll talk with white house director of legislative affairs, mark short, about the battle brewing. and how instagram is putting a stop to unwanted snooping. wait until you hear this one. back in a moment.

7:32 am
>> maria: good tuesday morning. welcome back. thanks for joining me. i'm maria bartiromo. it's tuesday, february 13th. your top stories right right no. markets are on edge this morning again. futures point to another selloff at the start of trading, down 136 points on the dow, the nasdaq down 32 points. this comes after two straight days of gains on wall street.
7:33 am
the dow had a great day yesterday, up nearly 2%. the nay nasdaq and s&p 500 up by almost 1%. in europe, it's been a choppy session this morning. the major markets are off of the lows of the day. the dax index remains negative, off of the worst levels of the morning. in asia, mixed performances. japan comes off a long holiday with a decline of 2/3 of 1%. shanghai was up 1% and the hong kong hang seng was up 1.25%. in washington, lawmakers are facing legislative battles on two fronts. questions rise over the growing deficit in the budget and the senate is taking up eu7 up immi. president trump weighs in on all of that yesterday. >> one of the things that was important to me with respect to the budget was daca. i did not want daca in the budget. i wanted daca separate so that we could talk about it and make a deal. i hope the democrats are not going to use it just as a
7:34 am
campaign. they've been talking about daca for many years. and they haven't produced. we started talking about daca and i think we'll produce. but if the democrats want to make a deal, it's really up to them. >> maria: the very latest on the negotiations coming up this morning. puerto rico meanwhile struggling to recover from hurricane maria. super model petra nemkova tells us about her recent visit to island coming up this morning. uber tells drivers to take a break. details on a new rule to prevent drowsy driving. instagram will make it more difficult to keep your posts private. boston dynamic's spot learns a new trick. there's spot, the robot. now spot can open new doors. more on the video coming up from the latest robot. president trump sent congress his $4.4 trillion budget proposal. the brinit includes funding forl

7:36 am
appropriations process. last year there was budget reconciliation votes to pass tax relief. this year because we have a budget cap in place, this is more of a direction from congress as to where the administration wants to go more than a legislative vehicle. >> maria: what about the fiscal responsibilities here that we've spoken about so many times and really getting the budget back on a path to fiscal responsibility as sarah huckabee sanders just said? how does it do that? when you look at the budget you talk about trillion dollar deficits and a lot of commentary around it that basically says we're in debt for as long as you can see and it's only going to get more expensive as interest rates go higher. >> maria, a kim things. couple things. last year we put forward a budget that balanced the 10 year window and congress said the cuts were too steep and too harsh. this year the budget cuts over the course of 10 years.
7:37 am
we're sincere about when to cut a lot of foreign aid that goes to people who are actually fighting against the americans' best interest. at the same time, we have a priority to rebuild the military. it's something the president promised on the campaign trail that he would keep america safe and our military has been, with multiple wars over the last two decades, unfor unfortunately wea lot of equipment that's been deteriorating that needs to be replane orbereplenished and troo get paid. there are national security threats that we have to make sure we fund. we're sincere about wanting to cut the deficits. the question is will congress partner with us to do so. >> maria: mick mulvaney said the budget does not balance within 10 years. so we know that. there's some groups like the committee for the responsible budget who said the projections are too rosy. you can't expect 3% economic growth for 10 years. maybe we'll get 3% or 4% growth for the next couple years. what if we get a h a recession?
7:38 am
does that change anything here if we get a recession and you're not seeing the growth numbers you put on paper? >> i do appreciate the concern. we're conservative in projecting 2.9% growth. the last few quarters we averaged 3%. we think where the economy is going is in a much stronger position. during the obama years, the budget predicted 4% growth, yet they averaged 1.8% growth. we think we're being realistic in the estimates we're putting forward. >> maria: when do you think that reining in the entitlements, when does that become a priority? >> it's a great question. we do need to get si sincere bot entitlements. it's a driver of many of the deficits. there's a lot of things we can do on the discretion fairly frondiscretionary frontright no. >> maria: meaning cutbacks? >> absolutely.
7:39 am
$3 trillion that is proposed over the next 10 years it's primarily on the discretionary side. in many cases these are foreign aid to countries that are actually aiding terrorist coring any sayseorganizations there. are .there are a lot of places y is going where it shouldn't go. the question is, will congress partner with us on this. >> maria: you said last year congress did it, they threw it in the trash. >> eve some o even some of the t were berating this, they said the budget would go in the trash because the cuts were too strong. the country needs to have a real question and a real conversation about the debt and the deficit. at the same time, we do think the economy is strong. we think the 3% gdp growth is strong. we recognize that 4.2 million americans have received either a

wage increase or a bonus in the last six weeks since the tax relief package was passed. so we think that it's on strong footing at the moment. >> maria: where does the $200 million for the infrastructure plan come from? the white house budget proposal includes that $200 billion for rebuilding the infrastructure. president trump said this about fixing america's roads and bridges yesterday. listen to this. >> i submitted legislative principles to congress that will spur the biggest and boldest infrastructure investment in american history. the framework will generate an unprecedented 1.5 to $1.7 trillion investment in american infrastructure. we're going to have a lot of public/private. that way it gets done on time, on budget. >> maria: where does that money come from? >> keep in mind, the president campaigned on the reality that america's infrastructure is crumbling. the proposal he he pu put fort s saying there's $200 billion available that we'll send to state and local governments to say we'll partner with you but we expect you to raise
7:41 am
additional funds. we believe this will entice partnerships to come forward to help match federal dollars. they'll match a percentage of an overall project that will spur additional growth. we ask that the permitting process be reformed. the president talked about the he empire state building being constructed in one year. today average roads take 10 years to get through the permitting process. another part of the package is reforming the bureaucracy and reducing regulations in washington. >> maria: the senate is kicking off a debate on immigration. the president weighed in on reaching a daca deal yesterday. here's what he said. >> i did not want daca in the budget. i wanted daca separate so that we could talk about it and make a deal. and i hope to be able to make a deal. i hope the democrats are not going to use it just as a campaign. >> maria: so mark, as the liaison between the white house and capitol hill, what kind of deal would the president sign? what do you need to get in order
7:42 am
to get a daca deal? >> i think that we've been very specific and very clear about our priorities on this front. the president laid out a very specific framework that said that he's willing to go an extra step with 690,000 participants in the daca program to say i'll expand the population where democrats want. i'll even provide a president hadway to citizenship. i -- a pathway to citizenship. we want to end chain migration and the visa lottery program. we look forward to getting a vote in the senate this week. >> maria: do you think the democrats will agree to that? >> i think the question for them is do they want to agree to a plan that, again, provides a final solution to this population or do they want to plighpoliticze. some say they want to keep this alive so let's kick this down the road for a couple years and
7:43 am
then we can have the same political debate. the president is looking to solve the problem and provide certainty for the population. >> maria: thanks so much. >> thank you. >> maria: stay with us for my interview with house speaker paul ryan at 8:30 a.m. eastern. we'll talk about the white house budget, immigration and much more since mark short just told us that congress threw the last budget in the trash and all those cuts that the president wanted in terms of domestic spending. still ahead, curbing drowsy driving, uber's new plan to protect drivers from nodding off behind the wheel. and also how boston dynamic's viral hit is learning how to open doors. back in a moment.

7:55 am
decided to check with that situation. our team went first and i went myself early january and seen the island almost like a few days after the hurricane. so i went with our long-time supporters, and they enabled us to make the first phase through the commitment of helping families. what we found was families without roofs, families without support. many of them, they're slipping through the cracks because they can't get fema support if they don't have the right paperwork. almost 300 families signed up to get help with their homes because they can't get the help from he fema. fee m wfema.so we help those f. originally we had to start with the same type of jobs a few days after the hurricane, tree removal and mold removal. the biggest need is roofs.
7:56 am

7:57 am
we teach you everything. we have a great staff who can tell you exactly what to do. if they are businesses and they want to donate materials, the supplies are very important, but each of us can come and be part of the change. if you're upset about what's happening in puerto rico and you have a spare long weekend, come and volunteer with us because that's how you can be part of the change and the solution or if you want -- if you can't make yourself available on thursday we have an event for the finance industry, called fight for education and you can help us this way as well. >> maria: that's going to be a big money raiser. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> maria: thank you very much. we'll be right back. stay with us.

8:08 am
ceo cke restaurants former labor secretary nominee andy puzder what immigration deal do you think president should signoff on what do you want to see what are you expecting realistic. >> i i think the president's deal is spectacular against whether democrats want a deal you go back to december 2014 following the election, republicans thought they could will get a deal done they told president obama, the one thing you shouldn't do is act on your own because he it will empower the people in congress that don't trust you already. and, of course, the first thing he did was he dealt with policies that affected five mill people here illegally saying it wouldn't enforce the law we've got the presidency a bully pulpit he addressed this in the state of the union 12. 8 million daca recipients visa pathway to citizenship 700,000

8:10 am
conservative they should not completely by dr. in tax reform given the fact small businesses, needed this tax reform the mil class needed this american working families needed this because they needed a tax break even just on average, with the global system, what do you make of what is going on with the budget deficits, going on and to the tax reform plan went through. >> let me say two things number one, the reason that the president agreed oing to forward with the pan that had budget deficits at this level is because we have to fund military, our air force deleted -- planes that could dlie, the navy shrinking we were not able to deal with defense of this country, in a way the president felt was necessary to protect the people in this country, now the second part of that we had to give something up we don't have enough republicans in the house or senate i would ask people to keep in mind this coming november but we don't have enough republicans we could do this and deal
8:11 am
rationally to budget agreed to something we prefer not to deal with i will tell you this gi is a or he gottor what are we talking about this morning big deficits what a negative impact they could have on the economy on american people, that discussion is the only way we're going to get the kind of necessary reform that we need to reduce those deficits. we have to have that he concern out there, with the size of the deficits because 70%, 69.2% of the 2019 budget is in wealth transfer programs social security, medicaid medicaid we need to he will do with this regulationly may have able to because we are having this discussion as fr ras tax reform bill look at national federation independent businesses survey came out this morning business optimism historic highss 2017 highest aefrj ever had january up 2%, and we want to see gdp growth, we want to see wage growth, and we're seeing businesses are saying 2%, 2
8:12 am
percentage point more businesses say they will invest in expect a expenditures plant equipment 4% say they are going to increase inventories again, spending on expect a expenditures raises gdp on wages, we have not seen since 1989, as many businesses as high percentage saying they are going to increase wages, 24%, and 31% say they already have so we are seeing increased wages increased gdp, and a discussion on deficits, all of that is positive, we need to keep it moving the right direction. >> positive, unless the markets look at it as inflationary, and the reason for the fed to raise raises more than we thought, right? as many so i mean you said a lot of things there, number one you this i the markets are going to push lawmakers' hands? and number two you say wages are going up. how high are they going up i mean is it becoming a problem? >> a well not going to be a problem for a what i will wages stagnated 8 years, during the obama administration. we have room to move wages
8:13 am
what we need to reduce he income inadequately in this country the economy incredibly strong american businesses are doing spectacularly well they are envy of the world, there is not a problem here with the american business, or american businesses or the economy, the problem is is with interest rates going up, people will transfer money out of the stock market, into interest bearing investments was going to happen whenever interest rates went up has nothing to do with economic strength and markets may adjust, they are adjusting and they should adjust. >> yee quick final word dagen mcdowell. >> going to say the problem is also the fact that we are now running trillion-dollar deficits, and this country gets swamped and pulls the government pulls he money away from private sector and by the way, inflation already percolating, while poole ford cisco food chane higher costs not just wage growth look out because interest rates higher ones are coming. >> that is what the markets are saying andy we know that.
8:14 am

8:51 am
privatize international space station end funding by 2025 next guess nose about iss spent a year on border joining us right now retired naut u.s. navy captain scott kelly thanks for joining is. >> good to see you -- >> your take on privatization of the international space station what do you think about that. >> unclear exactly what that means, the -- you know the president the administration, didn't really put out specifics other than we are talking about privatizing space station i think generally means to a lot of people is that you would kind of turn the keys over to the of the fast to outside organization which i -- personally don't think is very practical. >> captain, can that even be done? because kevin kelley here what is the things that with international space station you have other countries going up there, like, is it even feasible possible that we
8:52 am
could do something like this because we have russians up there, it seems like this cooperative a bunch of countries are actually working together, on something, for the betterment of man campaigned as opposed to constantly fighting in middle east. >> certain aspects we can, we already do. you know we turn some of the payload operations over to commercial organizations. we have turned the resupply of the space station over to two companies spacex, and orbital atk, on the u.s. side of the space station this notion that you can just turn the most complicated vehicle we have ever built that was built based on international partnership is -- you know -- i don't think is really possible. i mean keep in mind this is the most complicated thing we have ever built. it would be kind of like if you took like the crew of a --
8:53 am
a cruise liner perhaps said okay you are going to start operating a u.s. aircraft he carrier. it is not something that seems at all very practical to me. >> good morning my son and four yield wants to be astronaut you are a huge hero in my house having said that we spent 100 billion dollars on this national space station since 90s we have international partners, us leaving this how would that impact our international partners? people around the world? >> yeah, it would have impact, certainly, and we are in this you know program based on international agreements it is one of the greatest things about the space station we are able to do this cutting edge science with international partnership in common ground. and it was very expensive to build and we're getting to the point where we can utilize it do great science, and you know realize the importance of this
8:54 am
space station, for future exploration goals and to say and i am not sure the administration is saying this, i didn't read this anywhere but to say you could just basically turn the whole thing over to a company and walk away -- is -- i think it is kind of a misplaced idea for many reasons. maria: isn't it -- >> captain i want to know it private sector that is at forefront of this nay space exploration jeff bezos elon musk and is ap, last week spacex launched falcon heavy rocket fanfare as many a tesla on rocket what is wrong with the private sector owning international space station. >> i am no the saying anything wrong with it utilities he i am not sure taking on operation maintenance 1.1 billion dollars a year, transportation costs for crew and cargo. another 1.5 billion. government can do this k50i7d
8:55 am
kind of research investment we can this can long term. >> down the road? >> yeah, a corporate board or at the end of ceo is not going to like having to you know write a 2.5 planned check has maybe a return 10 years later. >> captain if you look at i mean if you look at, we would have never gotten here if corporate board of spacex didn't get over a bunch of their msnbc fortunat-- misfortu was in shock and awe. when i saw boosters. >> i thought it was incredible a game-changer spacex is different because run by basically one very clever guy elon musk he can make decision, and do things, that you know traditional companies might not be able to do.
8:56 am
but i was very impressed with you know the falcon 9 heavy i thought i just thought it was great, very exciting. but, again, i know going back to the space station it is a very, very complicated piece of hardware i think any company that took that over, if you could find someone that would be willing to spend 2.5 billion dollars a year just to keep the lights on, you know they would immediately be looking back to the nasa say you got to help operate this this is just so incredibly complicated i think unless you worked on it or if you lived on it you really don't get the idea of sophistication of the facility walking away from you know 100-billion-dollar investment i don't think is ever a good idea. >> we leave it there captain good to see you thanks so much. >> thank you. >> scot kelly. >> final thoughts from all-star panel back in a minute.
