4:02 pm
north korea, inflation, and we've had a good earnings season. that being said some of the top stories of the day, include as story pertaining to cbs and viacom. cbs going on the attack against shari redstones and the redstones in general, trying to get ahead of the board meeting, the board wants to change and consider the dividend in different way which would minimize national amusement, redstone group, their stake in the whole thing. down 17% from 80. the red stones have been trying to force a merger between cbs and viacom. cbs higher 2%. viacom down about 5%. look at tesla. it is under pressure today. we had a few different stories about eye tracking which is interesting and steering wheel sensors. of course the ceo coming out making his own tweet saying it was rejected for being ineffective, not cost. the stock is down 3%. there were several tesla stories today but that was the latest?
4:03 pm
>> and sears, they're working on a committee to sell kenmoore. anybody know kenmoore appliances? of course you do. eddie lampert is pushing this, the billionaire investor, the stock jumped 6.7% on a day are with the market has all up arrows. look at retailers reporting this weekend of the thick of earnings season has passed. we have a lot of names to watch including macy's jcpenney, walmart, children's place, perry ellis, those are the retail sector. we have a lot to watch. back to you. melissa: nicole, thank you. david: let's bring in today's panel. the market panel is adam lashinsky from "fortune" magazine. he is also a fox news contributor and liz peek from the "fiscal times." liz, eight straight days. i think it is money coming in from earnings. you can't avoid the money, right? >> basically because the economy is doing great and earnings reflect that i think it is pretty remarkable given all the geopolitical uncertainties we face right now, whether the iran
4:04 pm
deal, every one so horrified we pulled out of the iran deal and oil prices, guess what, are going up somewhat, that plus what is going on in north korea, china trade talks, all of that is secondary to the fact that the market is loving the earnings season. david: adam, there is a rule in journal, follow the money and the money is coming in covers of corporations. >> absolutely. that is the easiest explanation. i like the way liz framed that actually. all the other factors tend to be blips or one-day things, when companies come in with good earnings, that trumps everything, absolutely no pun intended there. melissa: oil on the rise, just under $71 a barrel as gas prices continue the climb up, 53 cents a gallon on average from last year, expected to hit a four-year high this summer. there is a concern that the high gas prices will wipe out the tax cut benefits. liz, what do you think about that thesis? >> it definitely cuts into them. i read it take as quarter, a third, almost half of the tax
4:05 pm
cut benefit off the table. let's remember there is a big burgeoning, prosperous industry in the united states right now which is the oil and gas production industry. last time, or sometimes when we have seen a big spike up in oil prices there has not been that benefit to the u.s. economy. now we really do benefit. we have a huge production industry that is taking advantage of that. remember too that fuel efficiency has gone up amazingly in cars and light trucks and suvs over the last 15 years. so a hike in gasoline prices just doesn't have the impact it once did. melissa: adam? >> you know i kind of like it when liz and i disagree so i'm sorry to say completely support everything that she said. number one, the rising oil prices and the rising gas prices for that matter are a sign of the overall excellent economy. the economy is doing well. people are using energy so it foes up. i would point out it remains regressive tax on everyday
4:06 pm
citizens, on everyday voters. rich people it doesn't matter if the price of gas is 3.50 or four bucks or 4.50. but people who deliver things and drive their cars every single day, it hits them the hardest. david: we'll find something these two disagree about. >> please. david: president trump is negativing a deal to remove sanctions against chinese tech giant zte, in exchange for beijing removing tariffs on u.s. ag products this according to the "wall street journal" this ahead of trade talks. blake burman is live at the white house. blake, before we get to that, tell us about the condition of the first lady? reporter: the white house announcing last 30, 45 minutes or so, first lady melania trump is actually at the walter reed medical at that silt nearby in bet these today maryland. she had surgery for embowism minimal procedure for her kidney. the good news this is destriked as a benign kidney condition.
4:07 pm
a spokeswoman for the first lady that the first lady is doing well. she will likely be at walter reed for the next week as she recovers. and as one might imagine, her husband, president trump is expected to visit her at walter reed. speaking of the president, this white house today had to clarify the president's position, really this administration's position what you were talking about at the top. as it relates to zte, the massive telecommunications giant in china. you remember it was the commerce department who said zte was involved, in quote, egregious behavior. this weekend in a tweet, president trump is working with his chinese counterpart, to wrote, get zte back into business fast. white house deputy press secretary raj shah during the press secretary tried to split hairs with this one. look this is complex issue. it involves economic issues. it involves national security issues.
4:08 pm
the commerce secretary wilbur ross, gave a speech a little bit of answer and question session at the press club earlier today, there is a line between penalties against zte and possible trade negotiations. listen here. >> it also wouldn't surprise me if they would bring up the zte, but our position has been that that's an enforcement action separate from trade. reporter: ross speaking there how chinese top officials, trade officials will be here in washington, d.c. later this week for meetings. by the way this is not just a trade issue. it was earlier this year back in february when the top six intelligence chiefs, the folks who lead the fbi, cia, director of national intelligence for example, testified before capitol hill and they were asked whether or not they use or would use these zte products or if they would recommend for average americans to use these zet products. not a one said that should
4:09 pm
happen. david: wow. blake, thank you very much the panel is with us. adam, let me read out the if i can the tweet that started this ball rolling yesterday, from the president at 11:00 in the morning. president she of china and i are working together to give massive chinese phone company, zte a way to get back into business fast. too many jobs in china lost. commerce department has been, a lot of people were shocked by that were you? >> i was. of course his follow-up one where he said something to the effect, just be cool about this. everything will work out. david, i was appalled by this. not so much because he is reacting to chinese jobs or telling people to be cool but because he is giving the impression that he will just decide this. i mean it was fascinating clip you just played. wilbur ross, his commerce secretary completely dis, contradicted the president. he said this is an enforcement action. it has nothing to do with trade. david: at the very least he was passing the buck. liz, i think we found an issue which you two can disagree.
4:10 pm
finally! the point is because -- >> better this way. david: in reaction to this, it seems clear a lot of farmers are pretty happy maybe they keep their products flowing into china into i think for most americans, yes it is an unorthodox thing president trump has done but what else is new. for most americans the idea that he is in a bartering situation, that he is a basically not going to shut down a giant chinese company in return for helping out the farmers and making sure they're not impacted by tariffs and tariff war that is going on, makes total sense to them and those are trump voters. so, this is that isn't shocking to me honestly. david: adam the fact you were flummoxed by this tweet is exactly the point president makes time and again. he likes to have people guessing what his next act is going to be, and that's what happened. >> and all we can do as the journalists that we are is trying to understand it. so i need to remind you liz, he
4:11 pm
created this agricultural situation. >> i know. >> when he slapped trade aluminum actions on chinese. crazy we're not applauding him for resolving the conflict he created. david: i don't know if it is crazy or three dimensional chess we haven't caught on to yet. but the bo -- bottom line you have to judge the president by the end. we'll see what happens in the end. adam, and liz, thank you very much. melissa: as we just reported the first lady is recovering at walter reed medical center to treat a benign kidney condition. for more on this, let's bring in dr. devi, nyu school of medicine. it is called i am bowlization procedure. is that what? what can you tell us about this? >> -- blood supply and part of the -- [inaudible] it may abbey nine tumor that they wanted to remove, so --
4:12 pm
procedure. you might cut off the blood supply first and then remove it. it might also have different congenital condition. where the artery and vain joined together and both have been -- melissa: dr. devi, so sorry to interrupt you. there is something wrong with our connection. we can't understand what you're saying. i'm so sorry. we'll try to get back to you to fix the connection. our apologies to the audience and -- david: i bet she is in a hospital. a lot of those hospitals have a little room you can't get cell phone coverage. we're hours away from a landmark vote in seattle, washington, what is being called the amazon tax. have you heard about it? it could not only affect amazon but corporations all over the country. we're live in seattle. melissa: president trump making good on another campaign promise, officially moving the u.s. embassy in israel to jerusalem. violence erupting in the
4:13 pm
gaza strip. where do things go from there? former israeli prime minister ehud barak joins us live in studio next. >> dear friends, what a glorious day. remember this moment. president trump by recognizing history, you have made history. ♪ metastatic breast cancer is relentless, but i'm relentless too. 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 for postmenopausal women with hr+, her2- mbc, approved, with hormonal therapy, as an everyday treatment for a relentless disease. verzenio + an ai is proven to help women have significantly more time without disease progression,

4:16 pm
david: we were talking about zte and that tweet of president trump yesterday, the two tweets. he retweeted about zte. quote, the large chinese phone company buy as big percentage of individual parts from u.s. companies this. is reflective of the larger trade deal we're negotiating with china and my personal relationship with president xi. the white house holding talks
4:17 pm
with a top chinese economic advisor tomorrow. kind of playing into everything that we heard from with our previous guests. meanwhile protests have turned deadly, very deadly on a day when the united states officially moves its israeli embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. violence erupts at the gaza border killing dozens, with the white house blaming terror group hamas for the carnage. with more on this from jerusalem, is benjamin hall. hi, benjamin. reporter: hi, david. this was the worst day of violence in jerusalem or israel has seen since the war in 2014. airstrikes carried out on hamas positions inside of gaza. sniper fire and as you say dozens killed. so a very bloody day here today. 53 miles south of jerusalem, these clashes started early in the morning. some 40,000 palestinians staged demonstrations along the border with israel. 52 were killed. more than 2300 were wounded.
4:18 pm
idf say they foiled several coordinated attempts to defeat the fence push being them back with live fire. they carried out hamas camps warning the palestinians in advance by dropping leaflets n jerusalem, 53 miles to the north. there was a joyous occasion. a campaign promise was fulfilled with great fanfare 25 years after the u.s. first pledged to do so. among them ivan -- ivanka trump, jared kushner and steve mnuchin. he said the united states will always be a friend of israel. the palestinians said this would make peace even harder and walked away from the negotiating table. now there are more protest planned tomorrow and we'll see if this es indicates -- escalates or calms down. david: benjamin hall. in jerusalem, stay safe.
4:19 pm
thank you very much. >> israel has the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital. yet for many years we failed to acknowledge the obvious. the plain reality that israel's capital is jerusalem. melissa: here now to react to this historic day is ehud barak. a former israeli prime minister of course, the author of "my country, my life, fighting for israel, searching for peace." >> thank you for having me. melissa: all day long people point to the pictures that you just saw. they point that take us further from peace moving embassy. what is your reaction for that. >> i don't think so. for all israel it's a moving moment. the decision should have been taken 70 years ago, for sure 25 years ago. we're very glad and thankful to president trump for just making it happen. it is true it alienated others but for no reason. basically does not exclude the
4:20 pm
possibility palestinians come to their mind and ready to strike a deal, they will have their state and probably have their capital, probably in some heavily hab stated neighborhood of jerusalem, they will have their embassy there, the american embassy there. melissa: a lot of people made the argument today that the palestinians were speaking to president trump before this happened when he made the announcement. they thought this signals that he is on the side of israel. that he is not an honest broker and can't be in the middle and can't help solve the problem. it set us back in those terms and point to the violence as well. does it make the negotiation harder? >> i don't know. i don't think it should make it harder that was something that was obvious as the president said, should have been done for a long time. and the proof of the put something in the eating. the palestinians should enter the room, put an end to terror,
4:21 pm
put an end to incitement. israel should make steps to make easier their life in the west bank and probably gaza and start to negotiate. that is the only way to decide whether it helps or blocks it. melissa: do you suspect on the side of israel, one possibility as the president is obviously a deal-maker, if he put this is out there first, then the next step could be when everybody gets to the table to turn to ask israel for something even bigger? guess what, i moved your -- our embassy, i came out right out of the gate if they come to the table i need you to give something up? as somebody who negotiateed this before are you worried that is what it was about? >> we have nothing to lose. the eternity to spill fight or shed blood forever doesn't make sense. we are stronger than any enemy or combination of enemies. we come out of confidence and
4:22 pm
strength to negotiate our future and check honestly whether there is the possibility. probably it will take time. probably will take more time than two terms after president but it will happen at the end. and i think whatever contribution a president can make for it is positive. melissa: yeah. you know, i want to bring out your new book, "my country, my life." you say that there is, you offer a warning of sort in the books which i think is apropos for this conversation we're having right now, basically saying israel is at a crossroads. what is the crossroads? what is the biggest challenge right now? >> we're at a crossroads where we have to decide where we head. we're stronger than any external enemy. israel doesn't suffer from any external threat. we have choose our way, heading toward one state which is what the present government seems to be looking for, which will end
4:23 pm
up inevitably in either non-jewish or non-democratic state because millions of palestinians under our control can vote into the knesset that is binational state, immediately, within short time, binational state without a majority. if they can not vote, that is not a democracy. so i see we have to take concrete steps in order to make sure that these live off the slippery slope to one-state solution which might be tragedy for zionist project. it might be stuck, we're strong enough, should take our fate in our hands, make israeli more stronger, flourishing while at the same time trying to release the tension with the palestinians. melissa: lindsey graham is saying this is the right move should have been done a long time ago but also there should
4:24 pm
be a two-state solution. maybe this is teeing up, guesting out of iran agreement, moving the embassy, and you in return there has to be a two-state solution, in combination of all that coming together could be the most peaceful outcome, what do you think of that? >> i'm not afraid of any attempt to reach a two-state solution. good idea and opportunity now especially when we have common interests to struggle with radical muslim terror. to put to debate iranian hedgemonnic and nuclear intentions and to join hand with rest of the moderate sunnis and monarchs within the region, saudi arabia, gulf state, egypt, jordan to develop a huge infrastructure projects which are needed, water, energy, everything. this is potentiality. but it can not fly if israel doesn't make certain steps towards the palestinian, at least for peace. not that other arab leaders have a love affair with the
4:25 pm
palestinians. they don't but because their publics have and arab leaders do not feel safe in their own states, if they engage israel publicly and seriously while the palestinians are still under our total control. we have to find a way in order to protect our security, our future, our identity, to disengage, call it a divorce. we don't have a love affair with -- at least -- [inaudible] melissa: that is great analogy. ehud barak, thanks for joining us, mr. prime minister. we appreciate it. thank you. david? david: fighting against the amazon tax it is called. seattle's largest employers could end up paying millions if the controversial tax passes. what this could mean for if you the tax goes through. that is next. brand new rivers of lava on ha's biggest island as many fear the volcanic damage will get a lot worse. we have a live update from the

every worker over a company's payroll that makes $20 million a year, having them pay $500 for every person on their payroll. this is on top of taxes these businesses already pay. i talked to some people who are supporting the plan. they say it is fair because they blame the city's largest job providers for poverty in their hometowns. >> big business exist something not incidental to impoverishment in our city and our cult you are. it is cause of it. >> corporations paying lower tax now than anytime in history. i don't think i would call it punishment. >> business as usual means death as usual f they can't pay, who can? reporter: supporters of this extra tax say the money would be used to build affordable housing. city officials say 600 business was pay the tax. the plan would bring 75 million in additional tax revenue to the city. some companies that call seattle home are pushing back hard on

this proposal. starbucks, alaska airlines, expedia, joined 100 other companies including small businesses in an open letter to the mayor saying in part, quote, we oppose this approach because the message it sends to every business, if you're investing in growth, if you create too many jobs in seattle, you will be punished. now critics of this idea say money is not the problem because seattle is not a tax-poor city. starbucks says throwing money at the problem isn't the solution. they should reform their homeless programs before throwing more money into the mix here. and you also have the amazon who stopped construction on one of the biggest construction projects downtown. that is in addition to everything else that is going on, putting 7,000 jobs on hold as amazon waits to see what happens here in just a few minutes, to decide whether or not they want to bring 7,000 more jobs to a city that is going to tax them for every person that they hire.

condition, maybe she had a benign tumor, benign versus malignant. benign meaning it is not life-threatening or cancerous. it may have been causing side-effects or nausea or vomiting or back pain and it have been found own a fiscal exam. the purpose blocking blood flow to the tumor so it doesn't get bigger. we don't want to feed it nutrition with the blood. it is very common procedure. she may have one of the most common tumors, and again it is benign but they can grow sometimes and cause nagging side effects. >> wow. she is expected to remain in the hospital for the rest of the week. is that normal with this type of procedure? >> yes, absolutely normal. you have to watch for complications. as of right now she has no complications but things such as bleeding, or, you knows oozing of blood or nausea, also, it is,

4:40 pm
a minute. there is also the question of hypocrisy. after all it was democratic committee and hillary campaign in committee that laundered money through a law firm in order to pay for the trump dossier. if you're talking about laundering money through law firms, you know the chickens will come home to roost, right? >> well i have been very consistent it is puzzling to me there is this fuss whether this $130,000 was a campaign-related contribution which is pretty dubious but possible whereas we know that the stuff went to fusion gps was definitely a hidden campaign contribution disguised, where the law firm was used as a cutout, there is no similar raids or process. people either want them both investigated all the way or both treated as administrative matters. not one way. david: there is another thing i think voters and everybody, fed up with, that is the attorney for stormy daniels. michael avenatti has been i don't know how many dozens of times on television networks all over the place, and you brought

up a question about a week ago, who is paying for all of his work? you know, you wrote this piece. he responded to it. there is avenatti for those who have been living under a rock for the past year who haven't seen him. he wrote back about your piece specifically saying once again for at least the 20th time, all fees and expenses of this case have either been funded by our client, miss stephanie clifford that, is stormy daniels or donations from the crowd justice.com page which you say what? >> first, stephanie clifford said explicitly not paying anything. he set that up only after he represented her for several weeks and asked the question who is paying for this. who is paying for this? where is the $500,000 he collected going? there is no accounting. and is there a separate opo research operation here? who is paying for that? was storm any daniels

vocally support the president on this? >> most democrats should, david. there are sadly democrats like keith ellison who historically not been supportive of israel but i think most democrats will support, should support. i think it is in america's interest and indeed the world's interest that we have a united front between the two parties as senator schumer's comments suggest. david: lien narcs let's talk about violence this responded. most of what has happened, violent protesters, you again hesitate to use the word protesters, many of them were charging the fence separating the gaza area from israel itself. of course israel was defending its borders but a lot of that was propelled by hamas, which is in control of gaza right now. and the united states -- >> absolutely. david: through various sources, through the u.n. dp and other sources indirectly funds hamas. that is the charge by a lot of republicans. what can be done about that, if
