lee carter. happy monday. >> happy monday. great to be here. >> what you call a raspberry blueberry combo? maria: i think he caused a braspberry. dagen: we knew that because he consumes all news that happy mother's day from everybody. if the dow is up to date a date in a row, the longest winning streak in almost eight months. the dow up you look there is a weakness since president trump first announced the steel and aluminum tariffs were started talking about them on march the first. all the gauges have been, the dow is the only went down about a 10th of a percent. it is up six and a quarter%. a really big gains in the small caps. the dow was still 7% below the all-time high earlier this year. we focus on the worries about the terrorists, but it's been a
great one for the blue chips in most major markets are down. maria: good earnings season as well. mitch revenue. >> the only thing i worry about for a revenue to us what is going on with the u.s. dollar. ohio 46% s&p 500 earned overseas. if that should turn around that would be a little bit of a reversal. >> join the conversation, health and human services secretary alexa czars vitesse. louie gohmert and his thoughts on the embassy. chief of staff to president george w. bush karl rove along with fox news interstitial analysts judge andrew napolitano. don't miss a moment of it. we take it off right here within historic day in the holy land. the u.s. will open it embassies after moving it out of tel aviv. celebrations underway ahead of the grand opening.
benjamin that yahoo! welcoming the delegation with open arms. >> this is a momentous time. president trump is making history. our people will be eternally grateful for this decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital. maria: ambassadors from two dozen countries attending today's dedication ceremony. israeli military bracing for up to 100,000 protesters right along the gaza border. former state department official and foreign policy is it to president obama's two dozen eight presidential campaign and now partner at the law firm gave it to foray. thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> earache and this? >> i'm a big supporter of israel and its important relationship for the united states of course. but most importantly it does
nothing to help the middle east peace process. we haven't moved the peace process forward even one inch. this is another example of terms drive-by diplomacy. but then he's not going to engage in the most important aspects of the relationship with israel which is helping get towards a middle east peace deal. american officials in trump's relatives in town in jerusalem to celebrate this move, but there's no? towards the negotiation. >> what you think benjamin netanyahu is celebrating if it's not good for israel? >> it's a good thing. something that hard-liners in israel very much wanted to happen. there's a lot of symbolism to this, but not much substance. in fact, the embassy is an even ready as you know. six years until we finish the embassy. the opening ceremony of symbolic
and helps in now way, but will not help at the more important goal of getting the peace process going. as you noted, there are now writes in the palestinian territories and gaza and west bank and palestinians deliver think it's good visual arbiter. >> maria, why can it be just practical? israel's parliament is in jerusalem. most of its government is in jerusalem. this is something the u.s. congress voted for in the last century. in terms of peace in the middle east, the last three presidents before president trump failed to negotiate a deal, the last talks collapsed in 2014. so people might argue with moving the embassy to jerusalem. what we've been doing in the past hasn't been working. >> the last three presidents actually made a lot more progress than president trump. president trump has made zero
progress at all. >> this is the first time i've heard the saudi's talking about israel. >> the studies weren't happy about moving the embassy. >> the broader peace process. there is no doubt israel is including benjamin that yahoo! are happy they are moving to jerusalem. no doubt several presidents before president trump has acknowledged the capital of israel is jerusalem. >> several presidents before president trump made the promise in their campaigns that they would move the embassy as well. once they became president they agreed on all the impact of the policy impact. they didn't move it. i'm not saying we shouldn't do that at some point, but this is a huge thing to get israel and we didn't get anything in it return. we could've gotten the the peace process negotiations started.
your guess as this has a practical impact, but it doesn't have a practical impact. the embassy actually is an even ready. so practically is a problem for us to move our embassy before we have an embassy that can hold 850 embassy staff would have been israel. must have the same tel aviv anyway, which by the way is for every other country in the world that has a diplomatic relationship with israel have their embassy. >> you said there's three presidents before the policy briefings that was a bad idea. what was contained in the briefings that would make it a bad idea? >> i noted first of all it's going to upset the leaders of the palestinians in the west bank and in gaza that they consider this something he did not want to happen. for us to do it, we should've gotten israel to make some sort of compromise is part of a larger deal. we gave this up for nothing. we got nothing in return.
maria: are you arguing that the capital of israel is not in jerusalem? >> i'm not arguing where the capital of israel is. israel has a strong claim that it is jerusalem and as you noted, israel has moved its parliament to jerusalem and it operates out of jerusalem as though it's a capital in jerusalem will certainly be part of -- maria: so what's the problem? >> the problem is this is very controversial in the middle east had for us to have done this symbolically without getting anything else in return, we are upsetting all the parties that need to come on board. moreover as i noted come in the is an even ready yet. why are we saying we are moving the embassy when we canceled our diplomats into the embassy down. it's all symbolism, no substance. dagen: it doesn't matter the trump administration has been clear. i know palestinians want their
own capital futures data as east jerusalem, but the trump administration has been quite clear that the final boundaries of jerusalem would be left up to final status negotiations. this doesn't dictate that to the israelis or the palestinians. >> exactly. but this doesn't do anything to move the peace process forward. why did the trump administration which said during the campaign it would be very easy to solve the peace process between the palestinians and israel. why hasn't made any progress? maria: it has made progress in this is a priority of the trump administration, the peace process pretty aggressively. the white house could be headed towards a sanctions showdown with european companies refusing to stop working with iran. white house national security adviser john bolton this weekend raising the possibility of penalties against your premises but michael mccaul told me
yesterday on "sunday morning futures." listen to this. >> it is possible. it depends on the conduct of other governments. >> the europeans will see it is in their interest ultimately to come along. >> i do business with the united states. that is why we have the ultimate leverage on iran. trade to your take on iran in terms of the u.s. pulling out of the deal. >> i was against the deal when it was signed in 2015. it was a mistake for us to have signed the deal because we could've got better. maria: then you agree with donald trump. >> i didn't agree with the deal at the time it was signed but it was time it was finally gave up many things to iran. many of those we are never going to get back. we had for as funds which went to iraq. we also worked with her partner -- maria: what you think obama did it then? >> president obama wanted to have a peace deal with iran. he gave up something that may be
a tougher negotiator would not have. maria: he gave up a lot and we know that. sitting there right now. dagen: david, i will point out one thing. there has been talk between the united states and europe trying to fix some of the issues between the iran nuclear deal. secretary of state mike fontenot said he is planning to approach european diplomats in the next few days to pursue a new deal and there does seem to be agreement between our european allies in the united states on the ways to constrain the ballistic missile program involves no how to strengthen the inspections of the iran nuclear site. there are some issues of agreement, but again it going to be money. it is going to be sanctions on banks, financial and diffusion and this is something james freeman told me. one way to go after iran as you go after shipping insurance in london and basically make it impossible to ensure tankers
transporting oil out of iran. some very specific targeted things. we always talking about bowling, but not a lot of other major u.s. corporations because they didn't believe this deal would stand as written. maria: david, we want to switch gears and get to train foreign china. the u.s.-china trade tory took another move forward. the two countries to meet today in washington. the vice premier coming to washington this week as the telecom company transfer may have been thrown a lifeline. first targeted in the u.s. banned for shipping goods to north korea and iran. president trump treated this yesterday. president xi and i are working together to give the phone company zte wait to get back into business fast. commerce department hasn't strapped it to get this done. what do you make of this, the u.s. helping zte now? >> this is highly contradictory.
we were just talking about iran and were instituting sanctions and now you have a chinese company that violated our sanctions and was working with iran, selling products and iran. we punish them for violating sanctions and president trump wants to give them an exception. it makes no sense in the contest of our policy in tensions with respect to north korea and iran and moreover it undercuts the policy analysis at the really bad precedent because when the company violate sanctions come you don't make exceptions punishing them for policy-based reasons. this is something most presidents do not ever do. president trump doing entities reinstituting sanctions on iran. sanctions are so important that we have to break with our european partners and allies for the given exception to a foreign company that violated sanctions. maria: i was surprised at this, but this sounds like another
piece of negotiating going back and forth between china and the u.s. the vice premier in washington this week. >> the delegation didn't hear much coming back. a lot of u.s. jobs involved because we supply a lot of components to train for. it's all about savings on american jobs. >> i wonder how this holds into the transfer technology story because that was a big worry. thanks for weighing in. we appreciate it. fuji film now weighing legal action after xerox is dropping plans to merge on the other side of this break. ♪ mbc doesn't take a day off, and neither will i. and i treat my mbc with new everyday verzenio- the only one of its kind that can be taken every day. in fact, verzenio is a cdk4 & 6 inhibitor

maria: do you think you are getting honest answers to the fbi and the doj? now, i don't. they are lying through their teeth. if you want to tell the truth come in the same thing to do in front of a federal judge was another branch just as congress is and you allow a fault in camera review. i'm not there at the negotiating table. when i was there, we would most often say if you say it's too voluminous and will take too long, gray. we will set side-by-side with your people. we will search, we will look into a things we don't need. to do that, we need to see them completely did. if they want to get to the truth, that's what they do. >> the oversight committee chairman darrell i said on "sunday morning futures" yesterday. justice department and fbi under fire for refusal to fully cooperate with lawmakers in
subpoenas for documents. "washtington examiner" editorial director hugo. what is your take on this? >> maria, i remember from my days as a marker reporter an old phrase, an old saying which is bad numbers take longer to add up the good ones. when a company was not releasing its earnings very quickly coming into the numbers would be bad kid same as the department of justice. the fact that it's taken a year to get some information and some still is an out means they have something to hide and they don't want to bring it out. i think he's absolutely right they are dragging their feet and thinking towards maybe the mid-term elections that they can drag this out in the congress has taken over by the democrats and a democrat don't ask. maria: does with they are hoping that looks like. maybe you get a change of hands they are. devin nunes will say look, once
we see within the document that psycho might draw. i'm done. pad think there think there ever will be accountability? >> ultimately there will be accountability. momentum gathered in people becoming more and more aware that the way in which the investigation of president trump's campaign, the whole russia investigation, there are very serious problems with that. the way that it was made to snoop on carter pagecamino, looks like perhaps it was based either purely on the russia dossier, which was unverified, or perhaps now it's been suggested it might have been based also on an actual spike used by the obama administration to snoop on the campaign. the idea that a sitting governor would use its powers of snooping
to look into the campaign of one campaign, one presidential campaign when they were supporting the other campaign was a serious thing which the american people i'm sure will want to know about. maria: this is a huge story and we are just getting drowned so that because we are unable to see the data in the actual investigation that they are using to investigate trump and investigate hillary clinton at the same time. they were biased and wanted hillary to win. it just makes the fbi and the doj with terrible. in terms of a massive abuse of power. >> i don't know how big this is, but it certainly smells. you know, i think once you've got that sort of stench out of the doj coming you know that there's some housecleaning to go on.
exactly where it goes, none of us really knows except for people in the doj. it is called was his duty, constitutional duty to oversee the executive branch. the request being made by chairman nuñez, chairman grassley, and the other chairman of the investigating committees are entirely legitimate to entirely legitimate demand a constitutional right, not just the right, but a duty to get to the bottom of this. maria: what about the ig report? we are expecting that within the next couple of weeks. will that get more information in terms of what went on here. the last ig report recommended criminal charges against andrew mccabe at the fbi. >> right. the number two guy is the second in mr. horowitz is a very thorough investigator was acted on both sides of the aisle. he's not regarded as the party scene. he will get to the bottom of this. i don't think -- i can't guess
or forecast whether there will be more criminal charges recommended, but i'm sure when the report comes out there will be since digital things in their that the department of justice and the fbi didn't want to have released and both congress and voters and the public are going to think. those things were covered up for a period of the year, year and a half, two years and it's not going to be pretty. >> meanwhile, robert mueller's investigation crossing the line. we know what judge ellis said. an op-ed in the journal this morning at mueller's investigation process illegal line, referring to judge ts ellis expressing skepticism about the scope of the special counsel investigation. what we don't want in this country as anyone with unfettered power and it looks like that's exactly what the
special counsel is doing trying to find something on donald trump wherever it goes. he's just trying to take the president down. >> that was the point in the year and a week or so ago where the judge, you know, mr. mueller steam said something to the court and the judge just expressed almost disbelief. he said come on, man. it was one of those kind of points where you think my goodness, that is is saying, there's got to be some, you know, there's got -- it suggests as you say that the mueller team is really stretching the limits and it's what's happening now is that the federal court is begin to go think, all right, this is going too far. maria: yeah, what's happened in terms of the change over the last six months or so, is that the american people understand now what has taken place and they understand that the 2016
election created an enormous amount of bias and you did have the federal government tipping the scales. it didn't work. donald trump still won but they certainly did everything they could to change the result of a presidential election which is actually pretty incredible. hugo, thank you very much for weighing in. we appreciate it. hugo joining us there. electric car maker starting delivery of model 3 outside of the u.s. investigators, though, are now probing whether a model s that rear-ended auto truck was an auto pilot. story coming up. meet the justin timberlake blueberry with raspberries now making its way to stores

than 2% for the week. the s&p was up 4 and a half, but the nasdaq was actually lower on friday by a fraction. this morning in europe stocks are edging lower. fractional losses, worst performer germany. in asia overnight, markets closed mostly higher, hong kong was best performer. new questions this morning for tesla and elon musk, police are investigating whether auto pilot was to blame in another crash over the weekend. the automaker is facing exodus of top employees as well. massive new crack on the hawaii volcano forcing more evacuations, take a look. we have the latest of of eruption threat this morning. go for the food, leave with data stolen, chili's reveals data breach that exposes credit card information of diners. plus there's this, justin timberlake fruit invention, top fruit producers pairing raspberries and blueberries which was justin timberlake's

[laughter] >> there you go. maria: that's it. the rest of the story coming up this morning. all coming up this morning, trouble for tesla. while the company is seeing top executives walk away, police are investigating whether a tesla sedan's semiautonomous feature was engaged when it rear-ended a fire truck, a fire department truck in utah. gerri wees -- willis, good morning. >> police investigating whether a tesla sedan semiautonomous pilot feature engaged when it rear-ended a fire department truck in utah, crashed into the
truck as 60 miles per hour apparently without breaking before impact. that according to utah police. and tesla is still struggling produce the model 3 but there are signs, well, things could be getting better. tesla has delivered first model 3 outside of u.s. handing keys to driver outside of ontario, canada. tesla sent purchase invitations but wasn't exactly clear when the model 3 would arrive in the country. grueling pact toward profitability, we have been talking about that, unpredictability ceo in elon musk might be taking collective toll on some tesla execs, matthew who had been director of field performance engineering at tesla has left the company to join waymo, along with tesla auto pilot executive who is have mostly gone to google, waymo, land recover, comes after tesla said engineering chief doug
field is taking leave of absence to, quote, recharge and spend time with family, maybe 6 weeks, we are not sure. maria: interesting, all of this debate about whether or not the company is seeing a liquidity crisis, could be one of the issues with management and executives walking out of the door, what do you think, dagen? dagen: it really speaks to the incredible pressure that field and the other executives are under to ramp up production particularly when the company is facing cash issues. this is something that literally prevents you from sleeping day of day after day and one other thing what is important with matthew leaving, he's the company main technical contact with the u.s. safety regulators, safety investigators at national transportation safety board. government is investigating all of the crashes. when you have somebody high-profile, that's another trouble spot. >> the semitruck is probably
dead. short answer is, yes, big problems, electric truck which ceo elon musk unveiled six months, hey, it was supposed to be a mind-blowing beast, that's what musk said and tons of companies pepsi and busch and ups put in preorders but two weeks ago, triggered a lawsuit, we reported that right here on the show. they claim tesla violated three of their patents in designing dg the semi. $2 billion in damages fission busch announcing that it will purchase up to 800 two-tractor models, competition is intensifying and we are seeing that tesla continuing to struggle. seems to me that the struggles are getting even more intense. as you know, elon musk went to production facility and was staying there, living there overnight, no surprise the engineering chief decide today vacate. [laughter] dagen: breathing down your neck. maria: that's your boss right
there. >> talked about doing joint venture with other automobile companies to help? >> i hear over and over again that tesla needs to have somebody else produce brilliant ideas but i haven't seen any announcements to that effect. dagen: one thing that will help tesla, we have gasoline in $3 in places like california and washington, over 3 bucks. gasoline prices in cali are up 24% from a year ago. that really does help and the world is coming to an end because i just leased a electric hybrid. exactly. the highest gasoline prices in 3 years or more. that does help. maria: behavior changes when gasoline is expensive. >> more demand can be a challenge if they can't meet the orders that they have. >> reup the ante in what they are doing.
maria: gerri, thank thank you. more evacuations this morning, the state is issuing new warning for explosive eruption as lava is continuing to flow right now. the story, the incredible pictures as well after the break. another data breach to report, this time affecting chili's customers, chili's, we have the details coming up. into retirement... and a little nervous. but not so much about what market volatility may do to their retirement savings. that's because they have a shield annuity from brighthouse financial, which allows them to take advantage of growth opportunities in up markets, while maintaining a level of protection in down markets. so they can focus on new things like exotic snacks.

with maria, back in a minute. i've always been about what's next. i'm still giving it my best even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'm up for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk
better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. so what's next? seeing these guys. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.

fulfilling a campaign promise. the united states officially opens its embassy in jerusalem in just a few hours. israel's ambassador to the united nations praised president trump this weekend on sunday morning futures. >> we are grateful for president trump for finally, many presidents promised to move the embassy to jerusalem, he's delivering. he's doing it. and we will celebrate it. many other countries will follow the u.s. >> maria: the move is sparking protests in the region. we've got the latest this morning. markets are rallying today as concerns over a trade war are easing. futures indicating a pretty good move at the start of trading, up 76 points on the dow, up 20 points on the nasdaq this morning. this would be the eighth straight day of gains for the market. it was mixed on friday. the major indices were up, 2% for the week and the dow was up 91 points on friday. s&p was up 4.5 points on friday. the nasdaq on friday gave up 2 points. in europe this morning stocks are edging lower across the

the markets, the stock market some juice was the kind of tame inflation numbers that we got on consumer prices. with gasoline prices headed to $3 a gallon, have you a drought in the midwest that could send food and grain prices even higher, this could trickle into the consumer economy just in time for the mid-terms. so not only are you going to see top line inflation, a few months ahead, people will feel that. and that's a huge messaging issue for anybody running for election. >> maria: you have to believe that higher oil prices are going to cut into economic growth. >> no he question. >> and people's perception of how the economy is doing is tied to how much money they have to spend at the pump, whether that is your heating costs or air conditioning costs, all of these things are le related and people will say this is how i feel things are going based on how much money i have to spend. >> maria: this idea of a blue wave is lessening going into the midterms. >> there's no question. when you look at polling numbers, in the general ballot
it's shrinking. in two months it's gone from a 16 point lead for the democrats to only 3. anybody who says it's a sure thing that the democrats will sweep, i think they're misinformed. >> maria: especially with nancy pelosi saying if we get the majority, we'll raise the taxes. >> dagen: after the individual tax cuts expire, that's when 83% of it goes to the richest people. the republicans need to push back on the messaging, the untruths, the fiction, the lies the democrats are telling. >> maria: you're talking about large corporations. corporations are going to turn around with a tax rate going from 35% to 21% and create jobs. >> they'll invest that
difference, a portion of that difference, that will create jobs, create prosperity. >> maria: so far it's gone to buybacks. >> dagen: crumbs. >> there's a reason why the democrats that are winning are distancing themselves from pelosi. >> dagen: conor lamb does. >> dagen: those corruption, those $2,00 -- those crumbs, the $2,000 crumbs. you know who needs that? people who are facing gas prices and higher inflation. >> maria: it's pretty e. straightforward fairly. we have a -- extraordinary. we have a lot to cover. in a few showers, the united states will open their embassy in jerusalem after moving it out of tel aviv. celebrations are under way this morning. the israeli military said they're yo bracing for for prots
along the gaza border. we had an interview on sunday morning futures yesterday. >> we're grateful for president trump, he is delivering it, he's doing it. we expect the palestinians to demonstrate. they're getting ready to do that. i hope they won't send kids to the fence to use them as human shields. we want to have a peaceful share mow no celebrate it. we're getting ready for all scenarios. >> maria: joining me right now is congressman louis golmert of texas. thank you for joining us. >> great to see you. it's great to hear this morning 90% of americans because of the tax bill get a pay raise. that's just fantastic. >> maria: we've always talked about the impact of the tax cut plan. let me get your reaction to the u.s. opening the embassy in jerusalem this morning. >> you bet. i think it's fantastic. who would have ever dreamed that
president john ailed j donald jd be the president who kept his word, recognizing jerusalem as the true capital. 3,000 years ago, jerusalem became the capital for the jewish people, the israeli people, and it's just awesome that today is the day my country, the united states, and the leadership of donald trump, is recognizing that. i think it's going to end up being such a great blessing for america, protesters considered. it's a great day. >> maria: let me ask you this. we had on a guest earlier in the program, congressman, and honestly i think he was just wanting to disagree with president trump on everything. so he was pushing back on everything. and let's face it, he also worked for the obama administration. but he said look, moving the embassy to jerusalem does nothing for the peace process and you say? >> [ laughter ] i say there is nothing we could do that would be worse for the peace process than what the obama administration did. they stabbed israel in the back,
repeatedly betrayed them, did everything they could to keep israel from protecting itself from iranian nuclear threats. first it was leon panetta outed the washington post when they were going to try to take out iranian nuclear capacity and then it was a leak from the obama administration saying they're going to use certain space so they couldn't do that. then they leaked 300 pages of classified material on ran's nuclear materials. on iran's nuclear materials. if there were a verse in the bible that said those who betray israel would be blased but blest that's what it says. they have protesters, but it's fine. they have a wall, they have a fence. 75% is fence. they have wall and fence. they will be protected. they know how to defend themselves and we ought to take
notice. >> maria: do you expect other countries to follow the u.s.'s lead? i think already we have -- >> i sure do. >> maria: we have seen smaller countries do just that. are you expecting this to take hold in terms of other countries? >> yeah, i think it will take a little time for people to follow the leader. but this was a true leadership move and, yeah, there are going to be other countries that follow. initially i think there are three countries that eventually got on-board. you're going to see more as time goes on because they're going to realize, you know what, we want to be as good of friends because of all the israeli technology, all the things they're developing in israel, we need that. maybe we better recognize their capital too. i'm thrilled that it's the united states giving the impetus to other countries do go ahead and recognize -- to go ahead and recognize what's been true for 3,000 years. >> maria: you mentioned the borders and strong border in israel. let's turn to border security. the president is threatening the senate over the weekend to move quickly on funding this
long-promised border wall. he tweeted this out, the senate should ge funding done before te august break or not go home. also waiting for approval of more than 300 nominations. democrats are doing everything possible to obstruct, all they know how to do. your take on this? >> it was not just the democratic leaders. it was also the republican leaders that gave the president a slap in the face with the omnibus bill. not only did they say we're not going to help you build a wall, we're only going to give you $1.4 billion and it can only be for a fence you can see through. part of it can be fence. that will be okay. there are some places we need a wall and as i told the obama head of secret service, either you tear down the wall and fence around the white house or you help us get it done on our southern border. by the way, you guys know markets so well. we heard testimony about the opioid tragedy going on in the
united states. most of the time it's demand that drives the market. when it comes to addictive drugs, it is the demand that drives the market and the more that -- well, actually it's the market that drives the demand. because if it's available, people get hooked and they demand more and more. so the more available it is, the more tens of thousands of americans will be killed. i found it interesting. whether it's coming from china or mexico itself or colombia, south america, two-thirds of the drugs from colombia, for example, they come up on the gulf of mexico side. they don't come to texas beach. they don't come to the third that comes to the pacific, they don't go to a california beach because these people are businessmen, we're told and they know the odds are almost unbeatable that you can get it in if you come through mexico. when somebody said years ago the best way to get a nuclear weapon into the united states is to put it in one of the bales of
marijuana that's coming in. it's a serious issue. we need the wall everwhere where it's going to help and fences where we don't need a wall and some places we just need properly patrolled. all of that has to happen. if the senate doesn't get on-board it's not going to happen. i thank god trump is saying what he is, it's fantastic. >> maria: i want to get your take on nafta in a minute. in the tweet from the president he talked about the slow-walking in terms of his nominees. he can't get the number of positions in place because the senate is sitting on things and trying to slow-walk it. it's amazing to me when you look at the prior administration and the number of bobby traps and the -- booby traps and the barriers that they've put in place for the trump administration. it's still going on. whether it's the slow-walking or the fbi or doj refusing to respond to congress who are
trying to get documents to understand what went on during the 2016 election or it's even obama himself putting out statements all the time, based on president trump's moves, which you rarely hear past presidents do so but he's been doing it consistently. it's pretty incredible when i look at the obama administration and the fact that they just -- they don't want to let go. >> well, thank you so much for pointing that out. they weaponized the government like never in our history and like newt gingrich said a number of times, we would never have known how much the government had been weaponized unless hillary clinton had lost. thank god we have a chance to stop that. but even with a good man like jeff sessions in charge of the doj, as long as rosenstein is calling the shots on the russia investigation and expanding that investigation, he is really part of the deep state. he's got a lady named tosh gahar
that is preventing the attorney general from getting his messages on time from the nsc. it's incredible how many of these people are really booby trapped. jordan kelly meets and eats with the mueller team over at the white house. there's so many weapons, just booby traps like you said. >> maria: did the president make a big mistake appointing rod rosenstein. devin nunes said he approved the last warrant for the fisa war aren't. phi warrant. -- fisa warrant. >> if the fisa court had any pride at all in their court, they would have put rosenstein in jail for what he did. he at least ought to be fired. he has a bunch of booby traps associated with him. you start by getting rid of rosenstein and you'll see a lot of problems go. like when they got rid of matt
mcmasters, that was a big move. there's still people around there that president trump has to get rid of. he's making the right moves and the right calls. >> maria: let me move on to nafta. negotiations ended last week with no deal. the u.s. has said we want a deal by thursday or friday so that congress can work it. a nafta withdrawal could prove costly for your state, economic activity spurred by this agreement currently supports 3.7 million jobs in texas according to the commerce department. here's what michael mccall said to me yesterday on sunday morning futures. >> we have to fix it and update it, not scrap it. my home state of texas, mexico's our largest trading partner. so this is economics for us. i think the administration is getting there to modernize the agreement, bring energy under the umbrella. i believe we have to do this. i think to scrap nafta all together would be a serious
mistake. >> maria: your reaction, will we get a deal by the end of this week, do you think, a new deal? >> i don't know if it will be by the end of the deal. there will be a deal. working jerusalem back in there, people see this president means what he says, more so than any president in modern history so that's fantastic. we will have a deal. it probably won't be by the end of the week. but mexico is going to know you have to work something out with this president. michael's right. we need to get energy into this deal but the president, i love it, he's not going to agree to a bad deal and mexico needs to realize they'll be hurt worse than we are. let's get a deal done. >> maria: thank you so much. we'll be right back.

>> maria: welcome back. president trump issuing a challenge after saturday's deadly paris attack. cheryl casone has the details. >> cheryl: president trump responded quickly after hearing about the knife attack that killed one man and injured four others over the weekend. so sad to see the terror attack in paris. at some point countries will have to open their eyes and see what is really going on. this kind of sickness and hatred is not compatible with a loving, peaceful and successful country. changes to our thought process on terror must be made. meanwhile, there are reports now that police are holding the parents of friend of the suspect

>> maria: welcome back. we're expecting a higher opening this morning from the broader averages. dow industrials set to be up 70 points. we have concerns over a trade war seemingly easing this morning. this would be the eighth straight day of gains. joining us now is craig hodges. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, maria. >> maria: what do you think are the big issues for markets as we go into the next quarter and we see the first quarter earnings season winding down? what's most important for markets and investors right now? >> well, all of a sudden as you know, we've gotten volatility back in spades. all of a sudden, since january, and it really comes down, the midterm elections are extremely volatile. the average correction during a midterm year is around 18%. there has not been a deklin decn the s&p 500 since 1946, the 12
months after a midterm election. so this one's very true to form. i think we're going to have a lot more volatility. i also saw the fourth quarter, the average return in a midterm election is 7.9%. so i think we'll see a lot more volatility, maybe not a lot progress until later in the year as the market seems to be getting its foot underneath it. the backdrop's great. earnings are good. i like the way the market's trading here. >> maria: how about oil, a big upturn in oil? is that going to dampen the party? >> it could. that is somewhat of a head wind. you're hearing the airlines talk about the fact that that's hurting them a little bit. that's easily overcome. i do believe that the consumer's in a very good spot. the tax cuts for the consumers are just now getting hit. they're just now being realized. actually i feel pretty good. debt levels are low. the consumer's good.
companies are adjusting to that. i feel like we're in a good spot. >> i want to go back to volatility which you spoke about earlier, the vics, the index which measures volatility is going down. it's below its 200 day moving average. do you think that's a sign that sort of all of the volatility's behind us now at this point? >> somewhat. i mean, i think it was kind of a shock to see after almost two years of no volatility, all of a sudden seeing quite a bit. but as an active manager, we actually like volatility. you see really good companies that go on sale, especially this earnings period. we've had one of the strongest earnings periods i've ever seen. there's been a lot of real negative reactions to earnings on an individual company basis. when the good companies go on sale, i think that's the time and at the hodges fund we're looking for good companies that can go on sale. >> this week could be a really big week for a couple sectors. we've got the nafta deal coming
due on the 17th or 18th. the president is making big announcements going after pharmaceutical pricing. tell me what you think might be most impacted this week by these i guess the things that could be volatile. >> it's tough to say if any one event -- there hasn't seem to have been too much going on actual news flow. i think it's more we're still -- we're three-quarters of the way through earnings period so it's starting to wind down. so once again, i would look at individual stocks, good companies that go on sale, and take advantage of it. the statistics i gave early, the first nine months of the year, the market doesn't do much. and so kind of be opportunistic and whatever the news flow, if you can find the opportunities in the market, that's what we're looking at here at the hodges fund. >> dagen: just on the drug pricinpricing thing, the presidt didn't do two things he talked about on the campaign trail, the
importation of clea cheap drugsd negotiating the price of medicare drugs for the public. he didn't do the things he said he would do. drug stocks rose up after the president's speak. merck was up, biotech was up nearly 3%, outpacing the broad nasdaq. there's nothing in there that's going to jeopardize drug sales for those companies, number one. number two, we get lost, we can't see the forest for the trees because we do -- we've done this all of our careers. we watched the market day in and day out. even since the steel and aluminum tariffs, the president started talking about them in march, only one of the major market gauges, the dow is down slightly. all of them are up. it's an incredible run for small cap stocks. what might be bad for blue chips it's great for smaller american companies. >> maria: would you be buying these stocks today?
>> yes, especially in the small cap area. they're the most volatile. they're the ones you can get the most opportunistic opportunities on, if you will. and as i mentioned, the backdrop's great. i've never seen more confidence. we do about 3,000 company touches over about 800 different companies and i've never heard more confidence with management teams. and the tax cuts are just now hitting and so i think most of these -- the management teams are going to overpromise and hopefully overdeliver. the backdrop's i think is great. >> maria: that's why it's not fair to say the money's gone into buybacks. this is just the beginning of it. you really can't see the impact of a tax cut plan in the next six months after it's implemented. you've got to look long-term. you think there's a real runway there then. craig, it's good to see you. thank you so much. coming up, a 5-year-old girl is

>> maria: welcome back. good monday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is monday, may 14th. fears over a trade war on the back burner for now. dow industrials are expected to be up better than 60 points, the nasdaq up 15 3/4. there was a mixed day on friday. the major i'm di see may indices were up for the week. stocks are lower this morning in europe. take a look. the worst performer is down a third of a percent, that is the german dax index this morning. in asia overnight markets closed mostly higher with hong kong the best performer. politically motivated, that's the charge against the nation's law enforcement agencies from some lawmakers. here is what darryl issa told me yesterday on sunday morning
futures. >> the fbi doesn't have clean hands. the department of justice, their partners don't have clean hands. so we, as the oversight if you will of that branch cannot and should not trust them. we should demand the transparency that we're entitled to. we need to be in front of a federal judge so we have two against one because it's clear we're not getting where we need to go fast enough. >> maria: we're taking a closer look this morning. a 5-year-old girl survives a bear attack in colorado. she received more than 70 stitches after the attack from the bear. we'll bring you her condition, the very latest coming up this morning. and a scary scene at disney world. a robot burst into flames during a parade. visitors thought it was part of the show. take a look at that. plus, tim cook talking facebook. the apple ceo takes a veiled swipe at the social media giant in the wake of the privacy scandal as he gives a commentment address to duke.
what's old is new again, with the return of home flipping, should americans be concerned. all that coming up right here. but first, the top story, a showdown with the justice department. congressman darryl issa accuses the doj and fbi of slow-walking document requests from congress until after the midterm elections. he said they have a strategy. here's what the former chairman of the house oversight committee told me yesterday on sunday morning futures. do you think you're getting honest answers from the fbi and doj? >> no, i don't. i believe they're lying through their teeth. if you want to tell the truth, what you do is you the same thing you do in front of a federal judge which by the way is another branch, just as congress is, and you allow a full in dashca- camera review. i'm not here at the negotiating table. when i was there, we would most often say if you say it's too voluminous and it will take too long, great, we'll sit side-by-side with your people, we'll search and look and narrow
down things we don't need. to do that we need to see it completely redacted. if they want to get to the truth, that's what they do. >> maria: joining us now to talk more about this, judge andrew napolitano. he makes a good point. if they slow-walk this all the way up to november and then they get lucky whereas they get a majority in the house, they're going to change all a those committee chair men. committee chairmen. we won't hear a word about the investigation. >> democrats running the house are likely to be aggressive against the president. >> maria: that's a good point. >> there are three categories that the justice department believes it can hold back. those which the law allows, those which interfere with the internal operation of an ongoing criminal investigation, and are you ready for this one, those which would embarrass the justice department or the fbi. obviously the third category is not a lawful category but it's what they do because under the
j. edgar hoover years they got away with it over and over again. >> maria: they can hide if it's going to embarrass them. >> congressman isa mentioned something i haven't heard from congressman gowdy or nunes. he said look, why this impasse? let's serve the subpoena. they don't reply, hold them in contempt and get the contempt citation before a court and the judge will say okay, send the documents to me. i used to do this. i will review them and i'll decide which the congress gets and which the congress doesn't get. >> maria: that's good. >> and then the impasse is over many this has been going on and on and on. this week will be the anniversary of the appointment of bob mueller. so this has been going on for a year with respect to the fisa stuff, it's been going on for more than a year. it shouldn't be going on like this. it's debilitating to the government and damaging to th d. you have a prominent congressman saying you're lying through your
teeth. this shouldn't be happening in the government. the government is here to protect our rights, protect our property and service. >> maria: you would think they are on the same side, that they want justice and honesty. that's not the case. they're not on the same side. >> there is the separation of power issue. congress cannot interfere in an ongoing criminal investigation. candidly, some of what congress is looking for is still in the midst of an ongoing investigation. because politicians can't keep their mouths shut. they may see something that they'll release which will send a witness leaving or a defendant hiding. >> why don't they go the route that you mentioned with the subpoena and have a judge review it. >> maria: i like this idea. >> for some reason, they don't want to do that even when the republican house of representatives held eric holder in contempt for failure to turn over fast and furious documents, they never went the one step further and took the contempt to a court. so it's basically just a piece of paper.
if they had taken it to a court and it was a judgment of contempt, i guarantee he would have coughed up the documents because the judgment of contempt would have interfered with his ability to practice law after he left the justice department. >> what's the reluctance about? >> i don't know what the reluctance is. it makes you wonder. >> maria: are they hiding something. >> do they want the documents or are they doing this to turn up the base. if they want the documents, they have the tools to get them. >> it's more important to say you won't give them to me, than to receive them? >> politically is might be beneficial to them. >> maria: let's be honest. they're asking for 1.2 million documents and they've only gotten 9,000. it's been a year. >> no question that the doj is slow-walking. >> dagen: politically i don't think this is something that would motivate them. the situation with the documents that they haven't gotten, the top secret intelligent source that the justice department is
hiding. >> maria: the washington post seems to know who it is. >> dagen: there was a leak to the wash tub washington post. the average voter gets lost in the weeds. we understand the importance, that you have an abuse of power at the top of law enforcement. >> the washington post knew that general flynn and ambassador kisliak had been taped before general flynn had been taped. >> maria: and that's a felony. >> it's a felony for whoever gave it to the press. >> dagen: pentagon papers, two words. >> that's the case that michael ofteoftenavenati will rely on. >> maria: let's talk national security. i was taken aback with former vice president dick cheney's comments about enhanced interrogation practices used on terrorism suspects after september 11th. listen to this. >> i've been very vocal about
it. i believed in it. i was heavily involved in getting it set up and getting the opinion out of the justice department on how far we could go. i'm not one of those people who calls it torture. a lot of people do. it wasn't. it was set up in a way that was consistent with our fundamental statutes and agreements that were in place and it worked. i think what we did helped ultimately produce the intelligence we needed to be able to get bin laden and so i supported it wholeheartedly. >> maria: his main point is we lost 3,000 people on september 11th and it's not like we're waterboarding everybody. it was three people and the one who was waterboarded the most was the mastermind of 9/11. >> except that all the former directors of the cia during that time period, including general david petraeus a and including gina haspel say that torture doesn't work. torture is absolutely against
the law. what he authorized being done is now criminal to do. it's against three treaties in which the united states is a party now and was a party at the time. >> dagen: she did say in the written information that she gave to the committee, she admitted that the program was a mistake but she did say in written answers that the program produced valuable intelligence. so that's another way of saying that it did work. >> maria: osama bin laden. >> then she wasn't truthful under oath when she said torture doesn't work. she said it three times. it's clear that waterboarding is illegal today. it wasn't illegal at the time he said he was encouraging it and causing it to happen. it is illegal today. >> dagen: you can't lie, if it did indeed work and get information out of -- >> maria: he said it worked. cheney said it worked. he said he would do it again. >> brennan said it didn't work.
it's an age dar-old conflict. this is not anything new. now we have statutes to address it. >> dagen: one of the seal team members who took down osama bin laden said we wouldn't have been on that mission if it didn't work. >> what's the sense of having a statute if we're not going to obey it. it was written to keep our behavior moral in bad times and in good, whether the immoral behavior works or not. if she was lying, she doesn't deserve to run the cia. if she was telling the truth, she will have to explain how she said it doesn't work. >> maria: thank you. >> you're welcome. >> maria: when we come back, facebook is under fire again, this time from tim cook. he slammed the technology giant's personal data practices during his commencement speech at duke university this weekend.

>> maria: welcome back. now this. a large black bear attacked a 5-year-old girl. cheryl casone has the details now and her condition. cheryl. >> cheryl: the bear attack happened about 2:30 a.m. local time sunday in grand junction, colorado. the girl went outside, she heard some noises. she thought it might be coming from her dog. well, the girl's mom says the bear was trying to drag her daughter from the yard but dropped her a after she began screaming at the animal. the girl suffered serious injuries. she is expected to recover. wildlife rangers are hunting for the bear, using tracking hounds and traps to find the bear. well, another child involved in a freak accident. a young boy was trapped in an inflatable bounce house as it
flflew onto a california highwa. then it slammed into a car. high winds blew the bouncy house a few 00 descriea few hundred f. the 9-year-old only suffered minor injuries. the driver was shaken up by it but was okay. this was not supposed to happen at the daily parade at walt disney world. this is a fire-breathing dragon bursting into flames, smoke pouring out of the head of the dragon. this happened last friday. people didn't get it. thethey just kept watch, thinkig it was part of the show. turned out it was a fire. disney says an investigation into the cause of that is under way. walt disney shares are slightly higher in premarket trading. the parks are still doing pretty good for disney. apple's ceo, tim cook, taig a ta veiled shot at facebook during a
commentment speech at duke university over the weekend. he hinted that he didn't agree with mark zuckerberg's response to the cambridge analytica scandal. >> we reject the excuse that getting the most out of technology means trading away your right to privacy. so we choose a different path, collecting as little of your data as possible, being thoughtful and respectful when it's in our care because we know it belongs to you. >> cheryl: well, zuckerberg heard all this. he fired back about it yesterday. he said cook's argument was not aligned with the truth. so stay tuned for more on that one, maria. back to you. >> maria: what do you think about this? thank you, cheryl. >> it's a graduation speech. it's not a advertisement for your company. it's not an opportunity to attack your competitors. >> maria: i agree with you. students need to be empowered. its not political. too many political speeches. >> dagen: i don't think corporate morality is an
objectiony morobjectiony more r. these -- oxy mor morom. i think there's an issue. tim is -- like i know him -- mry political. they were vocal about getting rid of a religious freedom law. he's standing on the foundation that steve jobs built. steve jobs would have said that if he stood up there and i doubt we would have criticized him. >> i would. there's a time and place for everything, that was not the time. >> dagen: gun control and abortion rights and stuff like that, that's all mike bloomberg. this is an issue of corporate responsibility, privacy versus
selling people's information. >> maria: we'll take a break on that note. wall street is taking on real estate. the new way firms are looking to cash in on the house flipping market. back in a minute. ♪ how do you win at business? stay at laquinta. where we're changing with contemporary make-overs. then, use the ultimate power handshake, the upper hander with a double palm grab. who has the upper hand now? start winning today. book now at lq.com.

>> maria: welcome back. revisiting a catalyst of the great he recession, home flipping. recent data shows its at an 11 year high. kkr is increasing its investment in a firm that specializes in home flip r. pers. mitch rochell is with us this morning. last time this did not end well. >> let me give you a little bit of why it's happening.
there's 3.6 month supply of existing homes on the market. ona lot of the homes need tlc. if you can't get into that house as a first time buyer, if somebody gets that house, flips it, adds some value, it becomes happehabitable, there's a 35% wh increase. there's arbitrage for entrepreneurs to come in and fix up inventory of homes on the market, make them more liveable and pick up some of that spread 678 it's .it's a profitable bus. there's an entire tv network dedicated to that business. >> maria: that's the follow-up. we were going to ask you, dagen, hgtv and the show fixer-upper, is that part of this? >> dagen: chip and joanna gains, their show left hgtv. she's pregnant again with their fifth child. why i know that, i have no idea. that is part of the problem. i wonder if the home flipping
idea is skewed by a few hot markets. there are a lot of markets. even you go an hour outside of new york city, the housing market stinks. miami is weak in terms of low end properties. it's been super high end properties. >> one other thing that's happening right now, which is a massive shortage of construction labor, so if you can put the sweat equity in yourself and do that fixing up, you can actually create some value and turn that thing around. you buy a house for $300,000. you put $50,000 into it and you sell for $400,000. you made yourself a quick profit. and there's a ton of buyer who want that $400,000 house. the business mo model makes se. >> maria: that's different than 2006. >> that was just -- there was an abundance of property. therthere was a 12 month supplyf existing homes. the demand wasn't there to match the supply. prices are going up because there's not enough s supply. it was a different model. >> i was going to ask about the
difference between now and then. some people look at this, is this an indicator that something bad will happen with mortgage lending practices and all that. i don't think so. i think this is a smart thing to do. to your point, about the right market, i think you have to look at this carefully and not just do this anywhere. >> you need to do it in a place where you know there's a market for that house at that next price point. >> what about the small urban centers where this is popular. >> it tends to be more p popular with homes than condominiums. >> maria: two executives have exited tesla and the automaker is starting delivery of the model 3 deliveries abroad, next. to buy or sell? with fidelity's real-time analytics, you'll get clear, actionable alerts about potential investment opportunities in real time. fidelity. open an account today.

sanctions on european companies that continue to do employis with iran? >> i think i did give the answer, we will see -- the answer is its is possible it dpebz on conduct he depends on conduct. >> realities to zte remember last month, the commerce department band imports from zte because of shipments it sent to iran,and north korea, and at the time the commerce secretary ross explained this way saying a few weeks ago quote zte made false statements to u.s. government originally caught put on list made falsely statements during reprieve given made falsely statements again during probation because this egregious behavior cannot be ignored however president trump now apparently open to return to this for zte tweeting over weekend president xi of china and i working together, to give massive chinese phone companies zte a way to get back into business, too many jobs in china lost, top
galactic in house intelligence committee adam schiff one of the critics of the tweet said over the weekend quote our intelligence agencies have warned the technology and phone pose a major cybersecurity threat you should care more about our national security than chinese jobs, maria white house says the president now expectancy ross to exercise his independent judgment. gentleman we don't know where this goes, it obviously sounds like it is a chip in the negotiating going on between u.s. and china, china doesn't want to be looked at, answer national security risk but that is exactly the leverage that this administration has. >> it seems like anything else, with trade you look one direction, one day, you look in one direction, the next day, and they seem to go back-and-forth in this administration. clearly they are at a tipping point right now with chinese leaders coming here, stateside this week, the president
seeming to picks it up over the weekend like he always does. maria: exactly, blake burman at the white house this morning, on the path, fulfilling another campaign promise president vowed to bring sky-high drug prices down, in an overhaul. >> my administration, is launching the most sweeping action in history to lower the price of prescription drugs for the american people. government has also been part of the problem. because previous leaders turned a blind eye to this incredible abuse. but under this administration we are putting american patients first we will work every day, to ensure all americans have access to the quality affordable medication they need and they deserve. and we will not rest until this job of unfair pricing is
a total victory for the usa. maria: administration looking to tackle the prices in drug market with improved competition better negotiations incentive for lowering prices and lowering out-of-pocket costs biotech firms, stocks rallied on that friday relieved new policy was not as amateurish as anticipated joining me health human services secretary good to have you on the program this morning. thanks so much for joining us. >> good to see you again. >> you have to walk a balance on one hand you want to get prices down but on the other hand, you need to make sure, to be free market, where investors believe that they can actually make a profit, if they invest. in companies that are o producing these drugs. >> you know what maria, i used to run tsarm of the big pharmaceutical company so i know the financials here quite well, and i don't really buy into pharma rhetoric that you take one penny out of profit ands somehow invocation is
going away completely we are doing premarket solutions harness powering of the market president made clear going to bring negotiations to medicare that don't have it harness power do better bidding exactly what he is driving on we are pushing congress to help with. >> is that the secret as you see? the competition? >> sauce, the competition will lower prices what is the plan to get prices down? >> yes, so key elements bringing better negotiations with about medicare driving exam that is the program that we control, for tens of millions of americans and pay for so much, of drug suspense in this country we've got a resale pharmacy program called medicare part d, the president is going to unleash the drug plan to actually negotiate against big pharma in certain categories where right now negotiations is basically not existing with almost no discount to rebates being paid no we are pulling that off
allowing full negotiations going to have bidding, and real discounting in that space for the first time ever going to bring negotiation competition and discounting to the physician administering drugs where nothing existed in the past. >> terrific it is crazy where nothing existed in this regard in the part are past how is that possible. >> the way congress designed the program, running u.s. arm of that drug company if you have a physician administered drug you set a whatever price pay no discount on it, it is covered by medicare immediately, if you have a drug that people have to pick up at neighborhood pharmacy and administrator to themselves, you are not covered until the drug plan allows you in because you made the case, you pay up to 30% or more, in discounts in rebates to taxpayers the beneficiary fight formulary management going through sales first other controls, that -- this
is where the president is moving drugs in part b, into part b, if congress will give us that, and we are immediately working to bring direct negotiations into part -- for the acquisition program, rejuvenatenating efforts the president made a promise delivering on negotiation. maria: sounds very project, let me ask you to connect the dots here in terms of china because people are worried that a lot of that medicine is actually imported from china and as we have all of this conversation, going on right now, in terms of trade, and what will happen, and -- and the changes that may happen from the trade story whether it is tariffs what have you where does that leave people who may need those imports from china in terms of medicine? how much medicine is imported from china, sir? >> well it is mostly on generic side this is where america really leads the world, we have the most robust generic market by brings affordable drugs to americans that is why part of our drug plan, is to ensure the robust
speedy access to those, to build up a new biosimilar market about so affordable options, to high cost by logic drugs 40, 50, 100 half a million-dollar kind of drugs, the president is going to bring competition to that space also. that is also why the fda mission is so vitally important to protect borders drug supply system whatever comes into the country is safe when american walks into a pharmacy here they do not have to worry about the safety, and the adulteration of the medicines they get that is one of the crown jewels of the american system. >> is it majority of generics come from klein. >> no, they come from all over major, manufacturers, throughout the world, so indiana china united states, israel europe a very diverse production capabilitied in the generic industry. >> let me get take on epipen story months after consumers reported unable to purchase the lifesaving device, the fda
announced shortages last week here we are, first dealing with the incredible price of the epipen now we've got a detail with the fact we can't get hands on them, what can you tell me about this shortage? >> yes, so we are working with the manufacture to a make sure that a consumers have ready information about where the product is available, sometimes what happens you have pockets where the product is available in other product pockets in the distribution channel, where there are shortages we are making sure patients have knowledge where to go making sure patients are aware of alternatives for patients have needs not only product they can take it n would would be fourm lakes one deliver device but making sure people are aware of alternatives, that may be available while the manufacturer is able to bring up production solve manufacturing. >> brings up another issue, being when we have the ceo of mylan labs on, basically talking about how expensive the epipen was it was out of
access, for a lot of people because it was so expensive, she said it is structure, right secretary the fact they she has to give money to farme pharmacy benefit. >> structured usualing who gets a piece of revenue, is that structure still in place? >> well, we are tackling that one of the bold things president called for friday we are actually calling for a complete reexamination of the entire pharmacy benefit manager system backdoor concealed rebate, and the pharmacy benefit managers getting paid both by driving companies they are supposed to be negotiating against, and from big pharma, we are calling on -- we are going to be examining looking at making sure they can't get compensated by big pharma, also, making sure, that these rebates may be move to discount not tied to i ab surrenderly high prices make
no mistake at the end of the day, big pharma is responsible for the prices that get set. >> good to see you this morning thanks so much we will be watching the developments, we will be right back. and a little nervous. but not so much about what market volatility may do to their retirement savings. that's because they have a shield annuity from brighthouse financial, which allows them to take advantage of growth opportunities in up markets, while maintaining a level of protection in down markets. so they can focus on new things like exotic snacks. talk with your advisor about shield annuities from brighthouse financial- established by metlife. i had severe fatigue, became diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma. he was a good candidate for immune therapy, which is allowing his immune system to attack the tumor. learn more at cancercenter.com a cockroach can survive heresubmerged ttle guy.

the great ironies it was prepared for this over last 8 years, by two unlikely groups of people palestinians -- to finding any solution -- at least those willing to be supportive of some efforts, soured them enormously second of all, president obama, policy middle east has achieved impossible, that is to convince state of israel kingdom of saudi arabia both united states is completely unreliable ally so in the last year president trump, starting first with visit to saudi arabia, and then subsequent action, has convinced, both israel and saudi arabia that he can be reliable ally as a result, saudis, jordanians nor egyptians gulf states have given into are to efforts of
palestinians to stir up bubble about this move. >> the last three presidents of the intelligence -- a bad idea to move embassy to jerusalem do you think this is a bad move? >> no, i think conditions have changed, in the past, you had jordan, saudi arabia, egypt, all of them strongly opposed, privately discouraging american presidents from doing this i don't detect any similar activity this time around it is because, again, conditions have changed, the saudis have become to believe that america's presence in middle east is essentially to the security and piece stability of the region, and they have also become convinced as a lot of major players in the middle east have, that hamas the palestinian authority are unreliable, that they can't govern on behalf of their people or speak on behalf of people particularly, the iranian influence, in the gaza worries them enormously we would have had king abdullah
saudi royal family president of egypt pounding white house, as they did in previous years, not this time around again ironic, because the past 8 years sort of convinced them if america wants to take this move america is going to take this move, and thick will adjust, and they things will adjust we will move on. >> we have been talking about thet tweet about bte this morning, announced working to give china telecom companies zte a way to get into business fast we know that he this company has done business, with iran, and initially with sanctions, because of that, now the president wants to help this company, what is your take on it? >> well, also, they were funny supplying north korea. maria: right. >> now, look i think we've got to step back ought not look just at zte look at big, important things, one is that chinese are stealing american intellectual property forcing american companies to want to
do business in china to give us their intellectual treasure house second of all the chinese are bent upon gaining dominance in telecommunication particularly -- coming -- ze zte undercutting state support of private companies ericsson nokia other major equipment suppliers around the world in order to gain this dominance they want to take and make china center of enforcing technologically advances i think the president i understand he feels he is got a great relationship with xi and i understand wants to help out qualcomm but ought to keep two bigger imperatives in mind. >> that is why blocked qualcomm detail with qualcomm because of national is president about to give away the the other doing away with national security concern? >> yeah, look, one thing that troubled me deeply in the
coverage yesterday that said the president would help out zte, and one of the places -- help out zte is diminish or end the administration efforts to rein in chinese, on march 23 administration put forward a challenge in action, about world trade organization, that trade lawyers tell me a very well prepared well drafted action to stop the chinese from stealing intellectual property in american companies we got a lot of difficulties getting it done because wto doesn't have really strong standards on this this is the problem with rapidly changing technology intelligent regulatory framework doesn't keep up that is where focusout to be not to basically undermine america leadership wipe out western advantage on telecommunication do we really want chinese equipment, about -- in the american telecom vie
when future war is going to first be fought any future war first fought cyber space complete utter access to america's telecom infrastructure. >> initially looked like president was well aware of this knew this but that is why the treasury stopped the qualcomm deal that is why he was pushing back, on china, but i don't know, is he just playing poker here or what -- >> i remember using that as the reason, that most trade sanctions would be put in place, now rolling back. maria: we don't know rolling it back that is what is at stake. >> this -- mishmash using marshal security as tornado aluminum steal really didn't apply now trying not going to apply we are where it does matter -- wait see what happens. dagen: makes us look weak does eventually weaken national security. maria: yeah, i suspect. dagen: would rethink sounds like somebody whispering in his ear a bad idea about zte
situation i bet listened to more than one advisory i bet changes his positive mind. >> mnuchin is in charge of this, leading that he will he had that delegation in beijing. dagen: right, about. maria: we will have be watching. >> final word. >> one issue one issue, wilbur ross the lead commerce zept where statements came action takes place where the leadership was on this, so there is a conflict here because i mean, as some reporting this morning, made clear, in essence persons union lateral move cut wilbur's legacy off on this issue. maria: you are right. >> wilbur and well maybe mnuchin's idea what were you going to say. >> if you throw china a bone, zte the question what are we getting in return, very unclear. dagen: you are picking and choosing winners and losers here, blanket policies tough pl particularly on china helping
iran north korea you have to get tough stay tough. maria: much more important that the transfer technology than -- the trade deficit much more important is the fact china is stealing our i.t. transferring technology, go ahead. >> the other thing going to say unless, this is the president throwing the bone to china to get them back to the table, if you don't i mean it seem like things are going awry before doing this. >> we will see we got to get to leaking call leaking obviously a big issue inside white house, axios is asking a few administration's prolific pleeshgz some forces why they leaked, one current white house official says to be honest, it is probably falls into a couple categories first is personal vendettas, two make sure there is accurate record what is really going on in white house. >> [laughter] >> i have never seen the i have seen white house i have never seen a white house leak, as much against itself as this
one, these are people putting their own personal agendas above those of the country, and the president that they serve, and frankly it is -- it is ridiculous it is decembspicae does nots help anyone certain not president of the united states the woman made terrible comment about senator mccain apology is due who leaked that what good would that do make mccain family feel better the president look better the white house look better in did it allow focus on what white house is attempting to achieve nobody spent four or five days talking about a -- a simply, ununacceptable comment one leaked to the press what good did that do anybody in america. dagen: story by swan points out they get more information out of white house in a week than they got out of the bush white house in a year, number
two, my favorite quote to cover tracks i usually pay attention to other staffers idioms use that in background quotes throws consent off said one white house official in the article. >> really, destructive. >> the strategy. >> yeah. >> you were the chief of staff. >> constructive they sent a lot of time thinking about how to leak, rather than putting that statement o working on job they are there to do. >> you are the staff can't you put a staff to this they must like it or else would stop. >> look, this starts from the top, if you created environment in which people don't leak against each other people will not leak against each other but no magic order you have to work, a president like the one that i worked for, worked very hard at creating an environment in which people felt obligation to the country and to colleagues not to do this kind of stuff worked very hard at it why people don't leak any this -- this cannot be there is no magic button you can push no reset button, that you
can do to make this stop, the meeting that they had -- >> maybe so many people against him in inner circle? >> i think, no i don't think i think there are a lot of people in there think they are doing a favor, remember who is the biggest leaker in the white house? it is the president of the united states, calls up media figures all of the time tells them stuff that he shouldn't be telling them, so if they -- he gives license to do this kind of stuff, needs to start from top president needs to contain outreach they do as well. maria: karl that is bottom line good to see you, sir thanks so much, carl rover joining us there -- >> karl rove joining us, automaker starting to ship model 3 cars abroad the very latest next. the demand for lithium is set to increase substantially over the
