6:02 am
markets. >> and as i've said before, they are impervious. you would've thought that trade was going to really scare the living daylights out of some people in the market. good jobs number. maria: there is a nuance last week talking about the exemptions of canada and mexico. reversing the apps that because of these exemptions it's not as onerous as we thought. >> i always thought it was about china and the focus will be all about china, but now things can be a little bit different. if it's all about china again, then you would imagine they would've set the markets a little more skittish than they are. >> more to come on china. the white house coming out with a plan because of china taking their intellectual property.
6:03 am
we know that this is coming from peter navarro. first we want to kick this hour off with the trump administration tackling school gun violence more than three weeks after the massacre. they call for providing rigorous firearms training to school staff supported to gun related bills in congress and improving mental health system as well. the fbi tip line and backs away from the call earlier. this proposal establishes a commission on safety chaired by education secretary betsy devos. here's what she had to say when asked about arming teachers last night on 60 minutes. >> that should be an option for states and communities to consider. i hesitate to think of my first grade teacher, mrs. wore off. i couldn't ever imagine her having a gun in being trained in
6:04 am
that way. but for those who are capable, this is one solution that can and should be to figure. every state in every community is going to address this issue in a different way. >> interesting approach. mike baker. >> full disclosure, to have a keen field carry permit s. been a long time carrying weapons than i thought. fix it. i never woke up in the morning and thought to myself, this morning before 10:00 a.m. i've got to have a new weapon. i'm not happy to a four background program. as far as training teachers come it's always a one size fits all. it is just like the people in the streets. some people have no interest, don't even want to be anywhere
6:05 am
near one. same when you talk about teachers. come across teachers extremely effective, spent a lot of time in the military and are perfectly capable and i would like those people. i have three children in elementary school. i would want somebody in there that i'm calm again does. that's a community decision. a pta decision. maria: is it wrong to think is a too expensive to think we should be having an armed individual that doesn't have to be a teacher. veterans would like to do something like this. someone who is armed and trained as schools. >> the one thing we learned from a florida mouse cursor cannot rely on law enforcement. if you're in the middle of a school shooting in you call the cops he could take them 20 minutes to get there and even if there is an armed guard on the premise -- maria: you are for this?
6:06 am
absolutely. not every teacher needs to carry a gun. that is why -- trained to choose one person or two people. >> they could pass the background check. maria: this is going to be easy for a teacher. >> some will put their hand up and say i want to do this. but again, it's got to be a community-based issue. you know how emotional things get. of course it's raising emotions. at the same time, the issue that we have with part would come in the complete collapse, failure of the program and protocols in place that exists. first you've got to fix the system. i'm tired of people with no experience in this arena saying that proves that you shouldn't have the solution. they walk into the school does
6:07 am
sound of the gun fire. >> this is the concept knowing that there is a chance. it sort of reminds me of having sky marshals and i fly a lot, knowing there could be a sky marshal on the plane. it makes people a deterrent because if you're thinking about doing something bad. >> a lot of the people you look at a lot of the other individuals. i don't look at that is. you've got somebody who can react to minimize casualties and that is for me what is most important to me. do i think someone with significant mental health issues will say at the end of the day there might be someone with it. >> there might be some shooters who would stop.
6:08 am
if you are a shooter looking to cause as much harm as possible, would you want to go to a gun free zone where you know you're not going to be top for at least 20 minutes or there might be a few teachers packing heat. >> for majority leader kevin mccarthy said yesterday is important about background checks. why use it that guns are given in the hands of people who should not have guns? the background check is a priority. >> absolutely. >> bizarrely the aclu in the past that you can't share these issues related to mental health. there are certain things. nobody lives anymore. there were certain things we should accomplish as a nation that capitol hill should not be so dysfunctional that cannot get this done. one should be back on checks from the sharing of information
6:09 am
and ensuring those regulations exist. we don't have to change the entire program and the way we view guns. that is what broke down in the spirit all of these little failures that allowed park land have been. >> the florida shooting was in large part about the failure of law enforcement. the solution isn't necessarily making laws, but in forcing the schema and making sure the fbi is communicating with local law enforcement. this is a massive failure on the part of the vi. >> that is why they spoke with the judiciary committee and they will be back to ask lameness because we have to understand what went wrong for the night inside they were warned about this one individual. >> the sheriff's department has a lot of explaining to do. >> sometimes in counterterrorism or their areas, the humvee tragedy. but there's one issue.
6:10 am
you could never get a human chain of events to be perfect all the time. but this was so awful it wasn't just break down. maria: do you worry they initially floated the idea of raising the age to 21218 and basically left on the cutting room floor. there was a lot of pushback. >> it was good to raise the issue. i didn't vote for president trump, but i want things to work. i'm not one of those people who says because i didn't vote for someone i will spend most of my time bashing them. i like the fact that he threw things out there that created a conversation. >> i'm not sure. >> this should be a space issue. a place like wyoming is different. >> just like alcohol is this day. maria: will keep following that. after a short break, or in the east river.

6:17 am
tariffs because people feel we've been on the losing end of the trade war that's been going on for decades. they are glad to have trump flip over the table. no one has wanted to do anything about this. >> gop is coming out with ideas on legislation to thwart these tariffs on aluminum and steel. we will see. i thought it was really interesting that elizabeth warren comes out and says america first. trump is right on this. they won't have elizabeth warren vote on this. that's for sure. >> whenever channeling dagen, who is out sick, but it hasn't really worked out. maria: dagen has been aggressive and vocal because she's seen recent situations where it hasn't worked and she's pointed them out very well. >> the conversation is super important. the idea we can continue to do business with china as always.

decades and decades the most egregious behavior of the world of economic espionage and theft of intellectual property. they bypassed the generation of engineers from not just us, but allies around the world in skipping the process we all go through. that was one of their decisions to do that. they devoted enormous amount of resource. >> a great report on this. china's technology transfer strategy. they are acquiring companies if you are ford motor, the first thing you have do is give up your technology you. that's the price of entry. they are basically getting all this american technology, acquiring it and then competing against it. the mac with the get-go in a move off the topic. i run the information security company.

6:23 am
maria: president trump announcing a sudden decision with an unprecedented face-to-face meeting with north korean leader kim jong un after a year of rhetoric between the two lighthouses claimed they were making with strict sanctions which many in washington say are working. >> i think what is happening number sanctions would've passed in the house, the pressure the president has put on, he moved to aircraft carriers over there. that is having an effect from this first act of the word the president is going. remember, no sanctions are coming off as >> the president is cleared and that is to get rid of nuclear
6:24 am
weapons on the pendency love. we have been executing all your maximum pressure campaign. sanctions have been a big part of that. more sanctions this year than the entire last 10 years and there's no question that sanctions are working on that brought them to the table. >> joining us more to talk on not as professor of international relationships at carnegie mellon university. stanford university's hoover institution and foreign-policy analyst karen karen skinner. good to see you. would you anticipate from these talks? your reaction to the meeting between the president and kim jong un which will happen by may of this year. >> by may, so much more will it happen in terms of paving the way for a summit between the two leaders. i think it will be a substantive meeting. as you know, there is a meeting in place that is being planned actually before the u.s. north
6:25 am
korea meeting between the south korean and north korean leader that would be unprecedented. their unprecedented meetings taking place now that the national security advisor for south korea having with his number all over the region. by the time of the may summit, he will be one in which it will be the united states in the drivers seat because they made no concessions to have this meeting happened. just then, secretary mnuchin and kevin mccarthy in those clips earlier, have been a maximum pressure strategy with sanctions that have been unrelenting in their working. >> good morning. nature or shell. the thing i worry about is north korea will use this as a stalling technique.
6:26 am
the negotiations will start and use it as a stalling technique to show some good faith on their part in it will continue with the new program. >> we have to worry about that all the time. i don't see how they can use this particular opportunity as a way to stall because we are not letting our pressure go away. the sanctions and military presents her close alliance with the south or it's in japanese and those in southeast asia also worried. that puts an enormous amount of pressure on the military and nuclear program of north korea. without sanctions relief, it is difficult for them to keep going on the nuclear side. i worry less about that than some of the other detractors concerned about the meeting. >> this is kristen tate. a lot of talking heads and
6:27 am
politicians say they've been acting like a loose cannon. a lot of us feel that kim jong un is a bully that needs to be handled by another bully. have you tried conduct will affect the negotiations of the meeting? >> i find it curious that some are saying president trump is a loose cannon in the medium that is being planned is completely unprecedented because in fact from the very moment donald trump was sworn in, he was talking about north korea and how he wanted to deed nuclear rise the korean peninsula and he also wanted to use diplomacy and was willing to meet with the north korean leaders. this is not from his playbook is consistent with what he's been saying for more than a year now. i just think he is on target for what he wants to do, but also go back for a moment and think about the reagan gorbachev area.
6:28 am
without the two of them meeting, there would be the first one of the cold war. their personal report, and their ability to talk to each other made the negotiators job a lot easier. >> just a real quick question. mike baker here. if you could give one piece of advice before he walks into the meeting, what would it be? >> understand what you are to understand, but remember a lot more that 99% of getting elected president of the candidates themselves. donald trump was the one who set the agenda. don't let advisors who fail to understand the transformative nature of the america first policy been applied in northeast asia. don't let that stand in your
6:29 am
way. >> let me ask you about this policy adviser to president obama spirit and the administration over possible u.s. and north korea talks. >> this is not a real estate deal a reality show. when you are in a negotiation with something as complex as a nuclear program in the situation that is volatile, unique diplomats. >> actually in the american form of government, the head of government and head of state. they are working enormously hard. without it being involved, especially since we are dealing with authoritarian regime since they are a decider, nothing else is going to happen. >> i'm not sure what the criticism is.
6:30 am

the day after chemo might mean a trip back to the doctor's office, just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. neulasta helps reduce infection risk by boosting your white blood cell count, which strengthens your immune system. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home,

6:34 am
best performers were hong kong and japan. president trump is set to visit st. louis this week highlighting growing economy and success of tax reform, something he reiterated saturday night at the pittsburgh area campaign rally. >> look at what we've done. look at what we've done. you know what, we passed the biggest tax cut in history, didn't get one democrat. by the way, how good is that kicking in, remember, remember? [cheers and applause] >> we passed -- we didn't get one democrat vote. think of that, not one and now they are getting nervous. maria: we are looking at implications of tax cuts and tariffs on the economy coming up this morning. revisiting one of the most controversial murder cases ever, o.j. simpson gives hypothetical account of what happened the infamous night nicole brown simpson was killed. his comments are going viral this morning as he says if i did it, this is how i would have done it, it was an incredible
6:35 am
show. another failure at a fertility clinic and this time in california, flippy robot taken offline, find out why this hour. fiona the hipo finds love, how twitter helps her find a mate. first top stories half an hour, allies clashing over trade, u.s. representative on trade robert will meet with his eu and japanese counterparts later this week for a fresh round of trade talks, both have expressed serious concern about president trump's steel and aluminum tariffs and believe allies should be excluded, i spoke with white house national trade council peter navarro about the new trade policy. >> yeah, i think that the broader debate here is simply that what the president is saying is that we are free traders, we have the lowest combination of tariffs and
6:36 am
nontariff barriers in the world, all we get out of that is massive trade deficit that is ship off our wealth and ship off and the president says no mas. maria: former reagan economic adviser, marty, good to see you, thank you so much for joining us. >> good to be with you, maria. maria: whether or not you believe that's going impact economic growth? >> i think the key point about the tariffs is to get the chinese to change their policies. their policies about subsidizing industries like steel, but even more important their policies dealing with intellectual properties. in a sense forcing american companies to transfer technology to the chinese so i think they will eventually carve out, i hope they will carve out an
6:37 am
exclusion for europeans and japanese, in other words, for military allies there's no reason under the -- the current discussion to impose a tariff on them but i think the pressure will be on the chinese to change their policies. maria: i think you're exactly right, marty, why didn't we do surgical specific on china, i know that's coming, something coming to -- from the white houe because what they are doing is financing early stage technology companies so they are acquiring it that way and they are forcing american companies who want to operate in china to give up technology. that is the issue but right now the only exemptions we know are canada and méxico. >> yes, because this was all done under legislation that deals with national security and
6:38 am
essentially calls for across the board tariffs, but i think they will be able to carve out all of our national security allies and therefore focus the pressure on the chinese. maria: that's why the market has turned around, mitch, when the nuances started emerging. >> once it became it more clear that it would not affect trading partners. professor, sticking for china for a second, if you look at the stick swluis of the administration is really to help main street small business and the thing that bothers them when they try to compete, the fact that if you're manufacturing something to the united states, china can be dumping a similar product and putting you out of business. do you think as part of whatever the plan is to deal with china and trade, we are going to attack intellectual property,
6:39 am
attack their dumping practices head on? >> if there's explicit dumping, yes. i think the real problem is technology, want to sell a market more than a billion people forcing them to give up technology in exchange for access to markets and there's nothing that we can do to say to the chinese, well, if you want to deal in the united states, you have to give up your technology here because that's not the issue. so i think we have a balancing of forcing them through this indirect route. indirect route saying we are going put pressure on steel and aluminum industries and exchange unless you back off your technology transfer programs. >> professor, mike baker, do you think that strategy is going to work? that's a big peckulative --
6:40 am
speculative but what's your guess? >> nothing works perfectly. chinese were explicitly stealing technology through internet and cyberspace and when president obama met with president xi in california and layed out the detailed knowledge that we had of how they were doing that, how the -- the chinese army was using technology to steal ours, so the chinese said, you caught us red handed and we will stop technology theft. not 100% but improvement. maria: one of the issues that people keep bringing up is the idea that we could see retaliation. we will see about the threat of import tax material
6:41 am
materializes, kristin, you have deficits, germany $64 billion, china $365 billion, european union as a group $151 billion in deficits. if they push back too much, look at what they are giving back. germany has 64 billion-dollar surplus with the united states. >> oh, yeah. maria: does it want to lose that? >> absolutely not. the bottom line is the u.s. has is strongest and largest market and economy in the world and if another nation will hurt us more than it would hurt us. now we are hearing trump threaten to impose on eu products, like cars, my question is, well, if this does escalate into a full-blown trade war which i don't think it will, will trump go there and how far is it ready to go? >> i think it's negotiation, the danger is if we really went into a trade war, the impact would be on the transition on the
6:42 am
companies in the u.s. that are counting on exports that will lose market share else. where eventually all those workers will find jobs elsewhere, but there would be a serious short-run loss, so i think this is negotiation. maria: you to believe things are going pretty well, you saw the jobs numbers on friday, you are spoft where we are economically speaking? >> maria, as you know, the u.s. economy now is in a picture perfect condition but i still think it's very fragile because while it's lovely to see the high stock prices, i think as interest rates rise, that's a very fragile situation. maria: of course, marty, good to see you, thanks so much. >> good to be with you. maria: coming up the crime of the century sparking global controversy all over again this morning. o.j. simpson interview causing up radioon social media, we

7:04 am
spoke of. i spoke with mccarthy and he weighed in on congress making school savers. >> we need to start enforcing what we have but more importantly we need to make sure the background checks are updated and that's the bill we passed in december and now we are adding to it with stop school violence and the bill we are passing passing this week, y hook promise, they endorse this as well. maria: do you want to see teachers to be armed? >> if somebody has concealed carry permit and others and trained, i want to see it. maria: joining us fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano, judge, good to see you. what's your take on this jr. i have been arguing for years that no gun zones are killing zones, they are the most dangerous places on the planet and they should not exist. the government should not be in a position to disarm us because the bad guys know it's like shooting fish in a barrel. the las vegas concert, even though it's very easy to carry
7:05 am
in las vegas, you can't carry gun in concert, the san bernardino california office building, orlando nightclub, all these school shootings are no gun zones, they should be called killing zones and i'm in favor of getting rid of them. listen, not every person that works in a school is emotionally or even physically capable of carrying a weapon and go through training, you know how frequently you to train. it's an expireabel skill. certain coaches should be able to do that. in parkland, that wonderful big teddy bear of a guy who saved students by -- the gym teacher by throwing body over him, he had a handgun at home perfectly legal. maria: at home. >> but he couldn't bring it to school. he had it with him -- with that level of courage, he would have been able to save
7:06 am
more people. it only would have taken one shot. maria: i didn't realize that he had a handgun at home. >> i'm a thousand percent with the president on this, how can the president do it, how can the government do it, money, by giving money to the states to train and arm certain people who are ready, willing and able to do it. >> people are losing their minds talking as if this is trump's personal idea. the idea that's been floated. we have been talking about this for a long time. >> yes, we have. maria: submitting a notice to office city and budget. proposed banning bump stock following the shooting in parkland. do you predict more proposals in terms of bump stocks? >> well, i'm not crazy about the president using executive authority to ban things, i think this should be done if at all by congress, however, the laws -- this is nothing that president trump did, the law that it was when he became president allows him to redefine bump stocks so
7:07 am
as to make them illegal. i don't know if they can confiscate stock that is now exist, you probably have to pay people for them, the fair market value because the fifth amendment prohibits a taking, let me point to you a paragraph in district of colombia versus heller, justice scalia 5 to 4 opinion, characterizing right to keep bear arms as right, when he talks about what arms can you own, answer arms are the same level of sophistication as the bad guys and as the government. how do we win the revolution? because we had letter long guns than the brits did. so if the government has automatic weapons, should certain americans be able to have them as well? that's the answer. maria: that's a hard one. >> that's why i'm suggesting congress should debate that, it shouldn't be executive bureaucratic decision. >> judge, a lot of conservatives are word about the whole bump stock proposed ban is that gun
7:08 am
control advocates are never satisfied. so today it's this, tomorrow they are going to want to ban semiautomatic weapons, before you know it we are left with muskets. >> i understand that argument. of course, i share that argument and often make it, there are so few bump stocks in the country as far as we can tell, i don't think that that will begin the slippery slope, more interested in the academic argument, if the government can have that kind of government and the government has taken over by bad people and the bad people in the government want to confiscate weapons from us, we need to have the same weapons with which to resist. extreme circumstances that only happened in the united states once in the time of civil war. it's happened in europe many times. i don't know where it's going to go but there's no political support for bump stocks now. >> judge, real quick, as it relates to regulating and
7:09 am
overseeing weapons, it's become federal issue or state issue ultimately? >> right now, mitch, it's both, so right now the federal government sets a bottom line and the states can increase it, in my home state of new jersey all of these regulations that are being talked about as a result of the parkland massacre already exist because new jersey is the most restrictive state in the union. the states can't allow more freedom than the federal government permits but they can restrict it. maria: let me switch gears and ask you about the story that's being tweeted around. former cia officer and whistle blower kevin, the reason for all the crime and treason at the fbi and doj boils down to one thing the clinton-so-called charity. he's attacking the initiative saying hillary clinton was running secret server outside the department of state with the purpose of laundering money through the criminal clinton foundation, he thinks this is
7:10 am
going to end in indictments? >> that i believe the clinton foundation is criminal. maria: you do? >> i don't have the facts as he does, but the anecdotal evidence of what she and he, hillary and bill, got away with would never really happen to anyone in many, many states in which they collected tax refunds, they were not authorized to do so. in many, many states the level of money that they spent on themselves would not permit them to characterize this as a charity -- maria: versus how much they gave away, you're saying. >> correct. when you're no longer a charity then you can't receive tax refund. aside from them getting indicted, the sect thing claw-back, all those people who gave all of those billions now have to pay taxes on that money. maria: i sent you the zero hedge story, i would be interested in your thoughts.

7:17 am
different views, you wond whore does get the job but "the new york times" is reporting that it's little. cheryl: they are. the journal pointed out that the 2016 interview where he's from, he made quote, the days of unbriddal free markets is over. it's a pretty scathing piece this morning. >> gm in microsoft, right? maria: yeah, he was working with jared kushner apparently in the white house in the innovation sector. cheryl: but not involved in tax reform, not involved involved in deregulation, the question is he the -- maria: a bit of a horse race for the job. >> no update from fiona the hipo? cheryl: i think the tinder app is coming. maria: why the biggest ipo in the world might not happen until next year, it's being pushed back again, oil prices this morning are down at 61 and change and under pay or

7:21 am
maria: welcome back, now this, saudi goes on highly-awaited ipo till next year. stephen short. stephen, good to see you. this deal was center piece of
7:22 am
ambitious economic overhaul of saudi arabia. what's your take that this deal keeps getting delayed. now it's going to be getting delayed according to reports till next year. >> saudi arabia, maria, is playing extreme dangerous game of chicken at this point, at this point they may never see, when i say game of chicken, the longer way wait, now maybe pushing back a year from now, one more year for the u.s. crude oil export markets to mature, one more year for crude oil to hit the market, you're giving one more year for electric vehicles to further erode demand elasticity, the longer they wait, odds that valuation continue to fall and ipo continue to fall. maria: a couple of years ago congress changed the law allowing the victims, people who died and their families to sue
7:23 am
the saudi government over 9/11. going public at the new york stock exchange is probably going to be a big problem for the saudis, mitch, because they will be faced with enormous amounts of lawsuits. that's one of the issues that keeps the deal go back. >> they could have gone public in london or other jurisdictions. that was their choice. maria: exactly. we will see. meanwhile there's opec, stephen taking sides on oil prices, the journal this morning reporting the split on whether will send to overdrive and could trigger sharp decline, what's your take? >> absolutely, maria. u.s. shell companies are already in overdrive at this point. opec a few years ago did the u.s. industry a tremendous favor by forcing the decline in prices because all this did was make u.s. shell more efficient, more productive and more productive at lower prices, so when we look
7:24 am
at things, right now we have seen significant amendment, record amount of hedging, they only thoaj bring more product to the market, when we look at, maria, rig count, production correlated to oil prices with four-month lag given that we've had such a significant rise and we are staying above $60 a barrel, we are bringing and more and more rigs to the point where the rig count oil specific has more than doubled, actually up 230%, so production is rising and it's going to continue to rise and should help to damp any further increase in price for oil which, again, going back to earamco, bigger the risk they take with prolonging ipo. maria: mike, iran is pushing for $60. >> given that saudi and iran are on opposite sides of the coin here for just about everything in the region, what are the chances that they can find some
7:25 am
sort of common pricing ground? >> at this point, mike, i'm extremely skeptical, when i used to consult with opec about ten years ago with regard to -- split between sunni shiite side, i was told they would come down to business. it was fantastic during 1980's when sunnies and shiites slaughtered one another. right now, mike, we are looking at the largest outside of that and this is because of iran's nuclear ambitions and hedge ambitions and causing tremendous reck between the two sides and i don't see any possibility common ground between the two. >> it's mitch roschelle, quick question for you, on the supply side we have rig count, we have shell production, one of the things i wanted to focus on as it relates to price the demand
7:26 am
side which is what's going on with the economy heating up and job creation, is that going to be the impetus to keep pushing prices higher? >> yeah, mitch, i'm still very skeptical on that simply because, yes, demand will rise but not going rise tremendous to what we have seen in the past. this is because of the change in elasticities, you need two factors to impact consumer behavior, we had the first stock, price shock going back to two generations now but up until recently we never had the second and that's the substitute. to this point, we are only looking at more ev's hitting the market and that's going to be damping any significant arise in demand to push oil prices much further in the near future. maria: all right, we will leave it there, stephen, thanks so

trip to san diego tomorrow the visits comes days after justice department slapped california with lawsuit over sanctuary city policy former u.s. ambassador to u.n. honduras mexico philippines, under bush 43 john negroponte thanks for joining us, what would you look to see from the president tomorrow, as he makes this trip tolock at prototypes. >> he seems to be determined to go ahead with this i am not sure how much difference it is going to make. levels of migration from mexico, certainly by mexicans, is way down. even the flow is almost been reversed the issue still is central americans coming up from so you can't of mexico, my own view that the real solution to migration issues is, of course, the development and good governments of those
7:33 am
countries, south of the border, so long as they are wracked with crime gangs problems of law and order, there is inevitably a flow towards north i think it is very did i to arrest you can slow it down a bit but i don't think it can be stopped. >> interesting that this is president's first trip to california, while in the job, and the federal government is basically saying to california, what you have been doing is wrong, and illegal, and that is protecting ilz from california what is your thought on this. >> i think -- >>e i can't, well you know it troubles me that any locality any state would defy the federal government, on a matter that is clearly within federal law so i think it if this ever goes to court you know or goes to supreme court, i think i go the localities are going to lose i am with president he attorney general sessions. >> it was extraordinary, what
7:34 am
the mayor of oakland alettered all illegals go get cover ice is coming this week. >> no matter what you think of immigrants, i that is a separate issue. as far as i am concerned but i do think that it is wrong for local officials to do that. >> exactly let me switch gears did about trade tariffs that are front and center, right now, the european union then aing yus with retaliatory tariff in response to tariffs, he peter navarro told me yesterday on fox news doesn't think allies will impose retaliatory tariffs at all. >> we have been the we have large trade deficits because open market all we're looking for, is fair and reciprocal trade i think our allies at the end of the day will understand that all we're doing here, is defending two key industries, so that we can come, and help with their
7:35 am
defense, when they need us. >> ambassador this comes as trump administration is stepping up the pressure on canada mexico for fair trade during nafta negotiations, what are you expecting, this to look like? will canada and mexico give into demand do you think we get a nafta deal done it has got top 20 days there are elections in mexico. >> these are two of our out of the three of our most important trading patterns each with over 500 billion dollars worth of trade with us, it does go both ways although the trade with mexico is definitely in a slight i am balance if nafta were to collapse be abolished would have repercussions up and down i hope something can be done to salvage the nafta i think it has been very positive thing the past 24, 25 years. it is quadrupled levels of
7:36 am
trade between united states mexico helped, i think, improve relations between all three countries these are strategic partners i this i the by to by about north america better to think about it as a platform a strategic platform from which three countries together can compete with the rest of the world. >> yeah, i mean he is obviously looking for a better nafta deal. but also targeting china, in some way, basically making sure china understands the u.s. is serious, i unnecessary that the administration is going to come out with new proposals for trade tariffs or something along those lines, against china in excouple weeks would you be for that? >> well i mean i have to see, the details, but and i think we got to proceed with a certain amount of caution let's not forget, that china also has a fair amount of leverage vis-a-vis united states, they hold a lot of u.s. treasurys, they produce a
7:37 am
lot of goods that americans like to buy at reasonable prices. and the other point that troubles me a little bit is to talk about these different kind of protectionist measures at a time almost full employment i am not intierm certain what that is going to achieve the reason we have deficits is that wes consumed more than we produce inevitably a lot of products have to come from other unnecessary would you agree with editorial board "the wall street journal" that trade deficits are okay, it is not the same as budget deficit it is -- not a zero-sum game? >> george p. you schultz former secretary of state secretary treasury likes to say trade deficit is matter of arithmetic if you produce does than you consume that is what is going to happen. >> u.s. security council they are expecting a briefing today on coming summit between president trump and kim
7:38 am
jong-un, south korea says not yet received a response, from north korea on their talks with united states, is this meeting just another ploy by north korea what is your take on upcoming meeting. >> i think pressures -- he has to choose some point or on the between economic developments advancement on one hand or having a nuclear weaponry on the other hand, i think as kim jong-un gets more secure in his position domestically may be he is willing to hold some kind of international talks i think this is an interesting initiative. whatever happens, it is going to take time, this is not a process that is going to happen overnight that is the first point. the second point is that it is much harder than the situation vis-a-vis iran, because north korea already has nuclear weapons, so the challenge it is going to be quite a challenge, if we ever get down to talks. and, lastly, i guess the only thing i think we can reasonably expect from the
7:39 am
trump kim jong-un meeting would be to set a direction an agenda for you, if you will, for set of talks that would go on frankly for a long period of time. >> china doesn't want to be mar engine alized in this set to meet with xi jinping ahead he have summit with kim jong-un john bolton was with me yesterday, and he said that it is time for china to step up listen to this, sir. >> china's jived us 25 years said they don't want north korea with nuclear weapons done prechus little to do that when we say we want denuclearization we mean we want it now. that is like saying we have some desire about mexican behavior another opportune tells us you make mexico do that, these things are not necessarily that easy i have talked to chinese a lot about
7:40 am
these questions when i was in government. and they say sometimes you and aing rate the influence we have i am sure chinese have some difficulties, maybe they can do more. >> china is only going to get more difficult, given the fact that now its leader doesn't have term limits he there is forever as long as he can do it. >> well whatever, that is true, but china is definitely a key player on the north korea question we have six-party talks, they hosted a number years back china ourselves russia, japan and two koreas, that maybe one outcome of meeting between mr. trump and kim jong-un would be some revival of that negotiating format. >> has president tgh tal worked here do u think i uld you one of the reasons they have come to the table or should we not even believe the

8:06 am
maintain extended trade war with united states largely as you because we know in trade wars trade deficit countries do very well trades surplus countries do very poorly we know in last great trade war great the depression we are the one got hurt the most. >> the u.s. is asking china apparently, so lower the deficit, now 375 billion dollars china lower that by 100 billion dollars, not going to happen? >> it is not going to happen that way by trump getting on phone with xi jinping saying give me 100 billion dollars of trade, i think the problem here is that the chinese economy has been closing off made in china 2025 tray any of the basically to dominate 10 critical associates national security laws regulations played against foreign companies so there are issues there, and on top of that, you
8:07 am
now have, of course the investigation if china theft intellectual property probably concludes this year going to be a major item dwarfing tariffs. >> you are right i've got this report i find fascinating china technology transfer strategy, basically, they are participating in venture backed start-ups record level 7 to 10% venture deals done in 2016 i believe is the last -- the last five years actually so what should this administration do to push back china's stealing our intellectual property trying to acquire technology and compete with us in those industries. >> well you know with regard to the to 301 investigation i think essentially the tariffs or the prohibitions on trade with certain ens that they have got to be stiff enterprises stiff we lose 3 and 600 billion dollars a year in intellectual property theft to the chinese. that means, it be punishmentss have to be big with regard to chinese taking technology buying it we know that -- the

8:34 am
energy is magnified in a special election nae regularly consoled election dournt matter no doubt about it, but you tend to get more voters, so i think it does matter, but i think the key for republicans is take the message to the folks, make the case about why we're better off than we were two years ago, the tax bill being a big part of that, and then drive your core voters to the polls i think if we do that in midterms i think we gain senate sets a a good chance holding the house. >> let me ask you gun safety white house dealing plan to reduce gun violence at schools money to train school staffers, to a carry a weapon but does not raise the age limit, for buying guns, i spoke with kevin mccarthy yesterday, and really, he talked about what is happening in congress wants to get your take on it listen to this. >> we need to start enforcing what we have, the more importantly, we need to make sure the background checks are updated and that is the bill we passed in december now we

could potentially be concealed carrying that makes the school much less attractive target for some of these guys i mean right now we left a security leaps to the point where guys can go in a soft target that is changing right now, we need do it i would say the other thing that is important, from the federal perspective, is that accountability. and we had fbi in this case, in parkland, florida, they got two tips about this shooter not only that he was dangerous not only that he was crazy, but that he was actually contemplating a school shooting, and when that tip came in in january, of 2018, you are not going to get a better tip that lady that called it in she was on the money with everything. maria: i don't understand how they missed that. >> not only that, though they actually connected the 2018 phone call to the mississippi tip from 2017. so they searched the database, nikolas cruz pingsed in database what decisioned by they make. >> not to do anything, more on
8:37 am
the fbi, in terms of federal but they didn't even report it, to the local authorities, in south florida so my point on this is people need to lose their jobs over this, maria you can't just have an ineffectual bureaucracy time and time again no accountability, we got briefed last week by the deputy fbi director, and i can tell you this is the biggest example of government dropping the ball look at locals in south florida and fiscal impabi since in government we need people to be accountable for their failures! >> a lot going on it is a fbi i knowure looking at right now you just it is a mead he skraefrp wh scratchr what are they focused on to miss incredible obviousness signal. >> rob eroded lighthizer will meet with eu japanese counterparts to talk about new steele aluminum tariffs they want to be concluded as china is threatening retaliation
8:38 am
against new policy, i spoke with white house nationalize trade counseler director peter navarro why he thinks threats might be resigninging hallow. >> we have these large trade deficits, simply because we are open market all we're looking for is fair reciprocal trade i think allies at the end of the day will understand that all we're doing here, is defending two key industries so that we can come, and help with their defense, whether they need us. maria: so congressman some gopers are considering legislation to brocco block tariffs to thwart metal tariffs would you be in on that? >> my concern with the tariff -- if it is being used as temporary leverage to open markets, that could end up being good for the economy in long term that could lead to more trade and more open trade. my concern at the right now, is like florida we've got 100

jobs who use aluminum, and steel downstream as inputs for every one drob about about directly manufacturing aluminum and steal i don't want to increase prices, for those other businesses, and then potentially cost jobs. but i think that and we still need to know the details about how broad these things are going to apply, who they are going to apply to who it is not going to apply to the president issuing kind of a broad proclamation i this i the details are really going to matt. >> so then you would be in favor of having as many exception as possible then it sounds like? >> for our positive trading allies, and particularly with eye towards not damaging any downstream businesses who are using aluminum, and steel as inputs in products or businesses, i think we have to look out for them. as well as just the people who are directly involved in producing those products. maria: right do you think this is about nafta about china? or because it was all
8:40 am
exception i mean you have to ask why do it is it just a negotiating tactic? >> i think that is part of it, and i think china in the president has been tough on china well documented some of their practices i think those need to be addressed whether tariffs tr best way or not, we can debate that, in terms of nafta, there maybe some ways where renegotiations would be beneficial to the united states i do think they are using this to spur that along if they can get an agreement, that will open up, markets for us, i think that will be a win, are so a this is something that the president is very much engaging in cares a lot about it i think his goal is to get better deals for united states, i think most people agree that that would be a good thing. maria: let me ask you about the stiff sanctions now the plan talks north korea, there is a long road to fave meeting between president and north korean leader kim jong-un president says he hopes to do what others have not watch
8:41 am
this. >> we've had a problem for years with north korea. in fact -- president obama said it was a biggest problem we have. >> this should have been he handle, by the way, over the last 30 years not now. that is -- >> should he -- what it should have been handled everybody will say it too that is okay, because that is what we do we handle things. maria: so congressman as a a member of foreign reelincommitt your thoughts to agree to meeting. >> president is right predecessors receipt problem fester .obama did nothing hoped the problem would go away not going to work to this president's credit he said obama told me this is biggest problem trump has been talking about this 20 years i am going to confront this change the equation here, i think he is already done that, now whether this is going to be a meeting
8:42 am
whether this is real, i don't know, but i think that the fact that north korea is even engaging in this unprecedented level of pressure brought to bear on them i think there needs to be more to be done to make sure we can potentially get anywhere but the question is what the president insistence on facing this problem directly what he has done to bring pressure on the regime, is kim now thinking that maybe nukes are causing regime to be more unstable than stable about livable has been ticket to remain in power probably believers that if he starts to change that calculation that is the opening for us actually to solve the problem. >> let me move to fisa controversy, do you think we need a second special counsel to investigate what has gone on at it fbi the top of the fbi? >> yes for a couple reasons, one is you can't have fbi gait itself or doj so you need
8:43 am
someone outside the swamp in washington who is going to look at this with fresh set of eyes not owe anybody i don't want somebody buddies with comey mccabe any of that i want a fresh set of eyes the second reason is the inspector general who sessions initially identified to look into this cannot bring criminal charges he can't i am panel a north carolina can't subpoena people outside the department of justice. so that is clearly inadequate driven how many key people mccabe comey no o longer inside government yes, we need it i think we need it now, and i do think look, we talked about trump-russia collusion you have a special counsel there, since this thing has been going on the evidence i think of wrongdoing has been more on the side of those who were pursuing this navt in 2016 beyond fisa from time hillary's investigation started through the special
8:44 am
counsel, how did these people conduct themselves. >> i think incredible that we are looking forrun collusion we know democrats paid for dossier there is russian collusion unbelievable see you soon, we will be right back.
