6:10 am
country would not be pushed around by the u.s. on trade. watch. >> i have a good relationship with justin trudeau. it really did it other than he had a newsference because he assumed ian airplane that i wasn't watching. they can cost a lot of money for the people of canada. you can't do that. trade to these on the same day that top trade adviser peter navarro has apologized saying there is a special place in for leaders who stabbed a president in the back on the way out of the door referring to trudeau. watch this. >> to use language that was inappropriate, basically lost the power of the message. that was my mistake. >> didn't madeline albright use that?
6:11 am
i think she supported andrew cuomo, not in the annex them. tensions on trade still low. how does this play out? >> there's a couple of narratives. one is the u.s. canada narrative. they were working towards free doing a deal with nafta and not looks really like a sideline right now. it was interesting that the president was having a heat saying canada would pay a price. while his visor is, we just saw peter navarro c. my fellow calm things down. the other narrative which we have to pay attention to his china friend. this is where north korea comes into play. there's a deadline for friday for the administration is going to say what it's going to do on the first round of $50 billion a terrace with china. trade your they're supposed to come out a specific list of products that will be terrace. >> the question is does the president come back from the meeting and say i of monaco

6:13 am
maria: it's a huge success if that's an issue, the result. >> it all comes down to how you read the north korean. >> u.s. yesterday yes or no. my answer yesterday would've been yes. sure there's parts that could be improved. but i was amazed at yesterday was the number of prior government officiaat there for eight years and did not and can then be critical that if i was doing it i would've had these other elements in there. it is a good first start to your point. could it get better? yes. we have to monitor. trying to imagine how hard it is for the democrats to get this man a compliment. this is an anonymous on that. just getting to the table was a success. of course we need to save verification that they will not complement him in any way. >> it doesn't hurt to talk to the north koreans necessary. we would only do groups of six or seven or eight conversations.

appreciating, chances are your outstanding debt is marx considered daniel have a harder time borrowing. that is why we are talking about argentina. that is why we are talking about turkey. a little more strained and that's because of the e.u. trade to dot the ecb to announce a timetable to end the qa program bari and unwarranted unwarranted -- tell us which are gained from the e tomorrow. >> admire is pretty much a coin toss. i think there were two separate issues that the data has been disappointing and it's not just, you know, in the sauce numbers i'm confident. it's orders numbers and across the euro area. they are probably a little nervous about the data, but they have a forecast in which it gets close to their goal. so they could begin something they have to do this year just because of their own internal
6:29 am
rules, the huskies top and they may want to put it off another month or two july. that is pretty much a coin toss. i think they probably want to do it, importantly because they have to start taking about the transition. in a little over a year and a quarter, they will have a new ecb president. future of transitions is the tenured one likes to put in place the hard decision to mthe. trade your very interesting. instead, good to have you in the program. vincent reinhart. we sure to tune in today at 2:00 p.m. eastern or join us at 2:00 for live coverage of the federal reserve's decision at a press conference today right here live. first, back to business. now the historic singapore summit is in the books, mike pence is headed to capitol hill to calm nervous about ending wargames and south korea.

targeted the president on the tony award stage. maybe you saw that. and then there's this, a raccoon in skycrapper, see w happens next to that raccoon. we kick it off right here with top story this half an hour. president trump is back at the white house this morning. he arrived short time ago following his historic summit in singapore with north korean dictator kim jong un. the president tweeting this this morning. before taking office people were assuming that we were going to war with north korea. president obama said that north korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem, no longer, sleep well tonight. the president sitting down with fox news sean hannity and shed some light on what he expects going forward from north korea. >> we want to denuke the entire penia. we want to denuke the whole situation. that's a hot bed and you know
6:36 am
what's been happening for years and nobody did anything about it and you have to. we have no choice. we had to. we got our hostages back but they have blowb up one of their tes, primary testing site, in fact, some some people say only tests site. they are getting rid of missile testing site. they are doing so much now. so it's a process and it's really moving rapidly. maria: joining me to weigh in on all of that gordon chang, collapse of china and also with me kirk, commanding officer of uss cole. thank you for joining us. maria: gordon, let me kick off with you, there was confusion about the military exercises you were first to weigh in on this program yesterday and you said it was concerning to you that the u.s. and south korea would stop the military exercises because readiness is so important? >> yeah, north korea has two training cycles, winter and
6:37 am
summer and our big named exercises coincide with their. at the end of their exercises attack. position we want to mick sure that we are in a position to deter and necessary defend. that's why it's so important that we had key resolve which correspond with winter training cycle and guardian which corresponds with the end of summer training cycle. absolutely necessary to defende. maria: what about that commander, secretary possession of a weapon into to brief president moon on the summit, what are you expecting from the meeting especially after vice president mike pence is telling lawmakers that the ready preparations with south korea will continue? >> i think what you're going to see and i'd agree with gordon, while the exercises are important and we have been working for decades to make sure we maintain readiness between our two nations to respond to any type of aggression from north korea.
6:38 am
by actually not doing the exercises but continuing to have the coordination at the staff level and work it so that we can respond to this, i don't see this as a problem. olive branch by president trump that clearly is going to indicate that now north korea is going to have to come up with the technical and verifiable means as we denuclearize and go through the talks but the united states is in a good position because we can always reimplement the exercises. maria: i want to ask the same question, how do we verify? it's been impossible to get a complement from the left on president trump and what he has been able to keep saying, nothig was done, we have to see, you know, the details, how do you verify, gordon, are we going to be able to do that? >> we will be ablo do that because what we saw the joint statement yestet is just as bob nordelly a sheet. that agreement i'm confident will have not only denuking as
6:39 am
the president says, also ballistic missiles but also verification and we have to have a strict regime. remember the president pulled out of joint comprehensive action, the iran nuclear deal in part because of inspection problem. it has to be at least as inspection's regime in the iran deal. maria: you make a great point. commander, weigh in on that, the similarities or differences in terms of the iran deal pulling out of it and what we saw in north korea? >> i think the iran deal is going to be a great learning point for us. it's not just going to be getting rid of nuclear weapons, i think the american people need to understand that from the beginning we will need a technically verifiable situation where we can find out where were the research and development facilities, where were the processing facilities, where were the assemby and what missiles are they using so that we can make sure that all the facilities are located,
6:40 am
verified and then dismantled so the entire program is, in fact, taken down and not just get rid of the nuclear weapons themselves and the key verification is going to with the 800-pound gorilla in the room and that's china. china know what is they have and where it is and incumbent upon to work with china to ensure that they verify what the north koreans are telling us andhat we have a clear accountability if they do not do it while will happen as a result. ma has been helpful to this point, gordon? >> if we look 3, 4 years, china's sanction enforcement was better but if you go back 3 to 4 months it has deteriorated. you can go across the board. they are not busting sanctions, they are doing i openly and blatantly essentially challenging president trump. maria: wow. >> it's an important thing for us because we have to make sure as we talk to north koreans the
6:41 am
chinese don't continue. this is true for the russians, they don't continue to funnel money in north korea in violation to u.s. rules. maria: the president has pushed back on china, trade, they steal intellectual properties, all of the issues areraordinary yet country remains divided, you know, you would think at this moment in time when we've got such enormous issues at hand that the country would stand behind this president, commander, i spoke with senator graham, lindsey graham on sunday morning futures, his message is now is the time to get behind president trump. listen to this. >> to every democrat and republican, you need to help the president where you cannot ut him. writing a letter telling him what a good deal should be is good only if you're willing to back it up with the use of military force. i'm asking eve democrat who wrote that letter and all my republican colleagues to tell
6:42 am
north korea and china if diplomacy fails, we will have the president's back and authorize the military force as a last resort to stop the nuclear threat in north korea to the american homeland and the world at large. mari reaction, commander? >> i think he's absolutely right. at this point you have to remember, north korea is the only country in history that has threatened the united states with the offensive use of nuclear weapons. that is in violent read line, that's why the program needs to be dismantled and at the end of the day, china will also play games. we may work in economic front. they said and continue to arm up islands and dash nine lines and south china sea that will project power and force as intimidation to all islands as well as the region itself to exercise influence. so this is going to be consive. it's going to affect more than the united states and north korea. they'll be ripple effects. china has to be part and parcel
6:43 am
and partner in getting agreement to come through in a technically verifiable manner that takes down the nuclear weapons and if they don't do it, they're going to have to be held to account for any sanctions that are put in place. maria: i recognize china has been helpful up until now getting kim jong un to the table. truth is china is stealing from the united states and has been for decades and won't admit that they steal our intellectual property, that they force the transfer of technology, i actually have an op-ed out this morning in real clear politics talking aboutn jd that's technology that they continue to steal, how do you stop it that? >> thoseenefits benefits are a . ip commission report said the year loses 225 to $600 billion in ip theft. not all of that is china but most of it is which means, you know, $50 billion in tariffs, that's great, but that is not
6:44 am
going to be enough to stop china. remember, maria, we have an innovation economy. if we don't have the benefits of our innovation, we don't have an economy. maria: they want to be number one and things like ai and block chain in stuff that we want to be number one. gentlemen, thank you, great conversation. command aeroand gordon chang, we will see you soon, gentlemen. president trump takesn robert de niro calling him punchdrunk, what is he saying about the actor and how he targeted the president with more f bombs. raccoon taking by storm, the must-see video coming right back so you can be less concerned about your retirement savings. lk with your advisor about shield annuities from brighthouse financial- established by metlife.

6:58 am
i couldn't catch my breath. it was the last song of the night. it felt like my heart was skipping beats. they said i had afib. what's afib? i knew that meant i was at a greater risk of stroke. i needed answers. my doctor and i chose xarelto® to help keep me protected from a stroke. once-daily xarelto®, a latest-generation blood thinner significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. warfarin interferes with at least 6 of your body's natural blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor. for afib patients well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® compares in reducing the risk of stroke. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines.
6:59 am
get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. learn all you can
7:00 am
>> maria: good wednesday morning. welcome back, everybody. thanks so much for joining us this morning. i'm maria bartiromo. it is wednesday, june 13th. your top stories right now. president trump is back at the white house this morning. he arrived this morning following his historic summit with kim jong un. after that meeting, he sat down with sean hannity. he was optimistic about denuclearization on the korean peninsula. >> i just think that we are now going to start the process of denuclearization of north korea and i believe that he's going back and will start it virtually immediately.
7:01 am
he's already indicated that. you look at what he's done. >> maria: we have the latest this morning as mike pence soothes concerns about ending war games with north korea. approved without conditions, ate atat&t and time warner winning their case against the government. what this means for the battle for 21st century fox entertainment assets. we're watching. it is fed day, the federal reserve expected to raise interest rates this afterno most market watchers are waiting to see what chairman powell has to say about the labor market and possibly more news conferences, more interest rate hikes, where are we in terms of wages. dow industrials are set to open up about 30 points, the nasdaq is up a third of a percent and the s&p 500 is positive. markets were little changed yesterday. the dow was down 1.5 points, a was off 5 points.here, the s&p

7:03 am
>> speaking of unification, 19 years. >> maria: my anniversary. thank you soit's been a great 1. we've got a lat to tal a lot tot this morning. president trump touching down in washington this morning, following his historic meeting with northorean leader kim ng un in singapore. the two leaders signed off on working toward denuclearization of the korean peninsula. the president tweeted out this this morning. just landed, a long trip but everybody canow feel much r than the day i took office. there's no longer a you nuclear threat from north korea. meeting with kim jong un was an interesting and positive experience. north korea has great potential for the future. joining me now to talk about that, congresswoman martha mcfally of arizona and john garamendi. it's good to see you both. >> good to see you too. happy anniversary. >> maria: thank you so much.
7:04 am
let me kick it off, your take-away on the singapore summit. >> well, i was just over in south korea a few weeks ago at the dmz, visiting our troops and commanders and south korean leaders many i applaud president trump for his leadership and the strength in negotiations to get us to this historic moment. i do b there is now an opening and it is all up to kim, what he's going to do next. he's in a position of weakness. we're in a position of strength. he needs to now show in good faith that this is going to be different than the past, that is going to be taking a serious path to verify and and irreversible denuclearization. >> maria: do you believe we will be able to verify, we will be able to check on whether or not he's complying? >> those are going to be parts of the next steps. i think they should be starting to -- part of the negotiations going forward will be for them to come forward and reveal every site they have where they've done research and testing and scientists and labs, open up the
7:05 am
books for inspectors to come in in an intrusive way. those next steps will really show whether he's serious or whether he's going to blow things up with reporters showing but not actually inspectors seeing what their capables are and being -- capabilities are and being open about it. >> maria: let me ask you about the issue surrounding the war games. the president yesterday said he was going to be stopping the war games between the u.s. and south korea and then people were worried that the readiness would come into now you've got mike pence saying wait, the big exercises may stop but we're going to be doing training. your thoughts on what should be happening. >> well, first of all, they're not games at all. these are very, very serious and extremely important exercises in which we not only make sure that our own troops arerepared in every way for whatever eventual ththeeventualities may be on the peninsula, but we're able to
7:06 am
work with our allies, specifically south korea. it's extremely important that we be able to continue these exercises at whatever level is necessary to make sure that our troops are ready. the notion that the nuclear threat on korean peninsula is over simply is not true. that threat is there as long as north korea has a bomb and they have multiple bombs and the delivery systems and they have multiple delivery systems. there's a long, long way to go here. but it's eortant at at least first steps have been taken down a path. this is not the first effort to go down the path of denuclearization it's actually been about the last 40 yearst efforts have been made by multiple american administrations to denlearize the korean penin so this is not going to be easy. it's going to be difficult. but it is extremely important that the negotiations are underway. >> maria: this is the first time a sitting president wept face-to-face with the leader of north korea which is quite
7:07 am
extraordinary. would you say that stepne was a success? >> well, certainly it was. it certainly was in every way. it was a p opportunity, a chance for the two leaders to talk to each other, get to know each other. i suppose the president would say feel each other out and that's all good. stion is, did they agree shat jointg other than t communication and the answer is probably, we've got some open questions out ahead of ust listening to what north korea is saying that they think the president agreed to and what the president says that he thought he agreed to. so we'll see. there's a lot -- but it's important. of the three paths that were open to us, one is out and out war to stop their nuclear simply accept the fact that they could threaten the united states. that's not a good one. the third path is negotiations and that's underway and that's a good ming thing. >> maria: we were expecting this would not happen in one meeting. the president said that it's probably going to be few
7:08 am
meetings. let's talk trade. president trump says canada will pay a price after justin trudeau insisted that his country, quote, would not be pushed around by the u.s. on trade. >> have a good relationship with justin trudeau, other than he had a news conference that he had because i assumed i was in an airplane and i wasn't watcng. he learned that's going to cost a lot of money for the people of canada. you can't do that. you can't do that. >> maria: congresswoman, the comments came on the same day that peter navro basically apologized for sing there's a special place in hell for world leaders who stab the president in the back. what do you think about this in terms of trade and what we need to be doing in terms of getting better trade deals, but the more important issue in my view is the theft of intellectual property, that the chinese hav been doing for years as well as the transfer of technology. what to do? >> well, look, i'm generally a conservative free and fair trade
7:09 am
person. there are some very real issues, specifically with china stealing our intellectual property, demanding that companies give them access for this technology, that we've developed. these are national security issues. they are very real issues. we're having a classified briefing on this today i the homeland security committee and so the president is trying to address these becl security is at stake. and he's looking around to see about decisions of the past and where they are hurting american workers and hurting the american economy and hs trying to negotiate both with people who are not very friendly with us and also with our friends and partners. so he's working through this. i've met with secretary ross and the trade representative and also larry kudlow to share concerns about kind of where some of this goes related to farmers and ranchers and others in the ag community and others represent wanting to make sure it ends up not hurting our local communities. but the president is addressing some very real issues and things
7:10 am
that need to be changed. >> maria: another big issue is the zte situation. senators are seeking to reverse the white house deal to revive the chinese telecom company, zte. they're not seeing any pushback from president trump. the administration could slap tari chinese goods as soon as friday. do you agree with the move by senators to sto zte? >> absolutely. and in fact, we're doing so in the house. the house version has some similar very tough language on zte. we certainly cannot allow zte products to be used by any of our military and really ought not be available in the united states because yearly it's a channel for espionage by the chinese. at the very least, to say nothing of the issues of international trade and things that go with that. so yes, zte should be whacked very, very hard, should not be allowed to have access to american technology. the senators are right and frankly, the house armed
7:11 am
services committee where we chair a seat on that committee, we're also correct. >> maria: we'll see if things change or the tone changes now that the singapore summit is in the rear view mirror because president xi called president trump directly and said i need a favor from you. can you please do me a favor and help me with zte, just two weeks before the singapore summit. i suppose that's one of the reasonshat pre wanted china on his side going into the north korean summit. i don't know. ant t get your taken the southern border. a border patrol agent recovering this morning, he was shot in southern arizona in your state near the mexico border. more than 50 suspected illegal immigrants including children were found inside a semi truck in texas. this comes as paul ryan says his chamber will consider two immigrationls next week, a conservative version and yet to be written bipartisan version. your take on the bills, what should be done here? >> look, i represent a southern
7:12 am
border district. only nine members of congress do. our southern borr is not secure as we the border patrol agent being 1409 shot yesterday. i have ranchers that have cartels trafficking through their ranches on a daily basis. we've g to secure our borprovide wall, provide funding for technology and intelligence driven operations, agents, access roads, everything it's going to take to close the loopholes of the cartels, so people takeantage of us. i have a bill that we are voting on next week. we had hoped to be able to get 218 on that bill. we're still working and negotiating through these procedures here. we have a conference meeting this morning. look, i want to not just vote on something. i want to get it to the president's desk. i actually want to secure the border, move us towards a merit based immigration system, do something on da ca kentuckiana t
7:13 am
is reason -- daca that a is reasonable and fair. this should be a. >> maria: are the democrats >> well, other side playing politics with us, this has been a political football that's been kicked around by both sides for more than a decade, the result of which is a very serious immigration problem for the united states. all of the issues that she talked about are important, certainly border security, extremely important. our hearts go out to the agent that was shot. and there are other d situations onr, no doubt about it. the entire immigration program needs to be revised and revamped. clearly we need a comprehensive reform. just dealing with the border, building a wall or whatever along the border, won't solve the problem. and the contraband, most of it actually comes across the oceans. the u.s. coast guard has more
7:14 am
than 10 times -- almost 100 times more illegal cocaine and other drugs than has been captured at the border. so the bottom line of this is we have to have a comprehensive reform of which border security is but onet. >> maria: people know that. but the democrats want to use this going into november, right? can you get this done before the elections? >> exact my point. >> both sides want to get it -- both sides are using it for the election and therein lies the problem. this has been going on for at least five election cycles. we've got to get past that we've got to have a comprehensive reform. >> maria: good to see you both. thanks so much. we will be right back. the president is tweeting this morning on south korea. we'll have that. [music playing] (vo) from day one, we always came through for oucustomers. it's how we earned your trust. until... we lost it. today, we're renewing our commitment to you. fixing what went wrong. and ending product sales goals for branch bankers.

>> maria: welcome back. the time warner at&t deal aa proved without conditions yesterday. the acquisition now can move forward and the decision has major implications for the media business and further m&a. joining us right now is u.s. chairman and manager partner elect kelly grier. good to see you. thanks for joining us. >> thanks, great to be. >> maria: everybody was watching this in the business industry yesterday. we were focused on what the judge would say about at&t and time warner. obviously he sided with at&t. what does this mean for further deal making in your view? >> it is big news and it's exciting news and i can't specifically talk about the transaction itself because of the client relationships that we have. but it is i think em bla i thint shift we're seeing in the marketplace we're seeing in terms of vertical integration
7:25 am
that implicit in the deal, but more broadly in terms of sector convergence and a really, really robust deal market. we're seeing the first five months of 2018 having record levels of m&a activity. we've seen nearly a trillion dollars of net m&a activity through the first five months which is 80% higher than last year at this time. the month of april had $245 billion worth of m&a activity. and that was a record level i the last 10 years and actually the last time we saw deal activity at that level was 2007. so it's a significant and very hoteal market right now. i think the -- >> maria: there's a lot of cash out there. >> kelly, do these vertical deals tend to work? i think about the last big deal that time warner was involved in with aol where you had a content provider and a pipes company getting together and that was a
7:26 am
disaster. what do you think about these kind of vertical integrations? >> it's a great question. i think increasingly businesses are finding the need to really transform themselves in light of the pace of change. the competitive landscape is changing for the likes of an at&t and time warner. and increasingly they're competing with not just the tels or media companies but the googacebooks and app of the y i think it's an important part of evolving the business model to remain competitive in a dynamic environment. >> maria: bob nature zeally, when you -- nardelli, when you have netflix willing to pony up $8 billion on original content, that's real competition. so content once again the valuation's go higher. >> as we said earlier, content is goinis becoming king. you have to have the cash to participate or compete. there's no question about it.
7:27 am
kelly, congratulations on your promotion. you're stepping in to lead a firm as the chairman, managing partner of the americas. tremendously successful, tremendously professional. what's on your agenda in taking over? >> thank you, bob. it's such an exciting time. i couldn't be more honored, more excited to step in and share the u.s. and americas for e.y it's an incredibly exciting time for the firm and for the profession, tremendous amount of change. the pace of change is truly unprecedented. it'it you affects all aspects or business, all aspects of our client's business. increasingly we have a need for really digital native and technology native skills within the broader accounting, auditing, i.t. skill set that
7:28 am
we've been traditionally bringing to the market. and it's an incredibly exciting time for us to bring that to bear, supporting our clients' business transformation. we're focused transforming the way we deliver our services. we are relying on emerging technologies, block chain, artificial intelligence, digital and data analytic capabilities that are really at the heart of the way that we are delivering our services and at the center of all of that is our audit business w remains incredibly important to the capital markets, to the confidence of those capital markets. and so all around, especially it's june and we've got a lot of college graduates and many of them will be joining e.y. and joining the profession, i think it's an incredibly exciting time. >> maria: with the audit business you've been busy because of the tax cut package. companies want to know what the best treatment is for them given the new law. >> absolutely. it's an a complicated body of
7:29 am
law,e encompasses many dimensios of tax law, different aspects of domestic, of state and local and international tax provisions that are changing as a result of tax reform. and to be quite honest, there's a lot of guidance that companies are relying on or are awaiting in order to determine what the true implications are. that's keeping our people busy. >> you talk about college graduates. we have a new generation coming into the workforce, generation z. have you at that? how is this new generation that's coming up different from the millennials that preceded it? >> maria: i'm. >> maria: i'm still trying to figure out the mials. now you want us to figure out the z generation. >> it's an interesting question. every year e.y. recruits somewhere between 10 and 15,000 people and most of them are actually off dashca-campus.
7:30 am
this is the next generation of workforce. 're very encouraged and excited about theolks we're bringing in from campus. they're helping us transform the i thinkve got just a totally different level of capability. they have a level of courage and boldness in the way they a approach their careers which i think is actually quite productive. >> maria: it is productive. it's nice to see the diversity. kelly, congratulations to you. thank you for joining us. with your move, three of the top four accounting firms are run by women. how do you like that? >> that is true. indeed. >> first time for e.y. congratulations. >> maria: we'll be watching. coming up, hitting it big, more than half of millennials expect to be become millionaires. what they are banking on to make those big bucks, we'll tell you. the world cup kicking often tomorrow. there's big breaking soccer news

and the dax index is up 46 points, a third of a percent. in asia overnight, markets were mostly lower. it is not just avocado toast. why the average millennial expects to b millionaire, even if they're buried in debt. how they came to that conclusion, we will tellou. the winner is -- >> for the 2026 fifa world cup, the member associations of canada, mexico, and usa have been selected by the fifa congress to host the 2026 fifa world cup. >> maria: all right. that is right, the world cup is coming to america in 2026. we have a preview as the 2018 tournament gets under way in moscow tomorrow. ldthen cnarriors and capitals, fans celebrating their teams' wins, scenes from the streets. look a that. wow. coming up this morning. a lot of celebrating still going object. all that coming up this morning.
7:36 am
first, this, president trump seals the deal in singapore many his body language may have stolen the show. a clash of cultures highlighted by power, politeness and plenty of smiles. joining us right now is body language expert, tonya ryman. we want you to tell us what you think you see. let's begin with the initial handshake that iconic photo that went viral. they approach each other on stage. they go to shake each other's hands. president trump grabs kim jong un by the upper arm. what do you see? >> if you watch the initial handshake, as they walk towards one another, trump extends his what the person of power typically ds. you think about presidential debates, they walk o like this. he shakes hands in an upward fashion which is somewhat submissive. he's kind of tricking him. as he gets closer, he neutralizes the handshake and then he pulls it a little bit, that trump pump that he likes to give and touching someone is a
7:37 am
signal of dominance. so by touching him, everyone seemed to think he's being friendly. no, he was makinge that he knew i'm you so i have more power and i'm touching you s have i'm in control. >> what did you see out of kim jong un? what was his position? >> he automatically feels a little insecure. they're taught typically to mask with a small smile. when you watch his facial expression, you didn't see much of a change. when he tried to pat back, it didn't work. trump patted again. they were going through this little tug of war and trump won. >> maria: he continues to remind him that i'm the one with the power. >> do you see this more in men, or is it equal for women? it seems like there's more touching, dominance going on with two men in power. >> the power struggle is typically between two men because it always looks like the hierarchy. you have touch. you have height. then you have eye contact.
7:38 am
that's cultural. if you look at two men, you're going to see from a distance who controls the situation and if you watched what he did after he shook his hand, afterouched him, he led the way. so if you wereatching with the sound off you would have definitely thought he was hosting instead of meeting. >> maria: this is donald trump, right. during the sit-down, both leaders were full ofmiles. prent trump ended the media availability by giving kim jong un his signature thumbs >> he does that all the time. even notice that handshake. that handshake was telling as well. oes the same thing, hand up and pull it down. but the thumbs up is typical for him. even that position that he was sitting in which is considered submy sieve because it's slumped over, that's his baseline. >> i thatled the figure leaf position? >> that was different. the figure leaf is up here covering. what he does is power thing down here. he's hunched so it comes across as su submissive.
7:39 am
we know it's not a submissive ure. >> i wanted to ask a question but i'm kind of nervous on how to do it, based on reading my body language. is this okay? >> hands are really important. if you can show your hands, it makes people trust you more, builds credibility. >> maria: like looking in the eye. >> exactly, againing culturally. >> maria: what do you mean, culturally, you mean looking in someone's eye is only an american t >> it's not only american. in some cultures it is disrespectful. >> in the middle east, for example. >> when i was a diplomat in the middle east, ther as a woman yod to be sensitive about these things. in some cultures, women looking a man in the eye could be disrespectful. >> even m looking into the eyes could be disrespectful. you have to know where they're g, know the people you're
7:40 am
talking to and follow their lead. >> does the bod city lang -- body language affect the way negotiations happen. dominating the handshake, does that change the way k un will behave in had decisions he makes? >> it's not just that. it's not that it dominates the negotiation. it sets the tone for who is in control. whether you recognize it or not, it takes a few seconds to build credibility. >> maria: after signing the agreement, kim jong un puts his hand on trump's back. >> trump -- >> maria: president trump returns the gesture. >> he has to be the seen takes last one to touch. we all as the audience know, and that's sending him a signal, that's sending him a signal, i'm in control and you're not. >> does this work with a spouse? >> yes, yes. >> maria: it's my anniversary today. >> happy anniversary. >> maria: thank you. >> what advice do you have for maria? >> depending on what you're looking to do, especially if talking to a spouse, you want to make sure when you talk to your spouse you're standing so that
7:41 am
your information, whatever you're saying can go into her brain which is the emotional brao that if you say something like hey, let's go away it will into her emotional brain and she'll go yes, let's do that. proces it in the left brain and it becomes more logical, i'm sure really, can we get away from work, do we have the money. >> maria: how do you make sure it goes in the right side of the brain. >> you have to stand with that person's eyes looking in one direction or another. if i look you on the right -- if i look at you on the right, it's product evidence on the left. >> maria: say it on the left then. >> then we whisper it in your ear. >> maria: so say it on the left so it processes in the right. >> yes, uh huh. business is the opposite, though. >> maria: great to have you this morning. coming up, it's u. canada have won the bid to host the 2026 world cup. the announcement coming just hours before this year's games kick off in moscow on fox. then back to back championships means back to back parades.

7:46 am
that about 49% surveyed actually believe they are going to be a millionaire. however, 47% believe that they will never, ever become a millionaire and 4% have actually achieved that status already. if you break it down even more and look at the gender ratio, 70% of men that were surveyed believe that they will hit millionaire status versus 38% of women. clearly the divide of pessimism and money exists. the average age of retirement is said to be 56 years old, many millennials not as keen to have children, they want to push marriage and starting a life to a later point, the average age for marriage coming in at 28 years old. that's a big concern for the environment. the cdc saying the birth rate in the united states is the lowest it's ever been. we're seeing the tightening o the labor market right now. millennials, i do fall into that category, aren't looking to have children at all or at a later
7:47 am
point in life. that's actually a concern for babyoomers. why in becaus? because of housing. baby boomers have a lot of income in housing. later on in life, those millennials may not be interested in buying larger homes because they don't have a large number of children to fill it. >> maria: pushing out hav kids. >> 4% are already millionaires. >> yeah, out of 1500 americans that are surveyed. >> the average person expects to retire at the age of 56. weaver been talking about how the -- we've been talking about how the next generation won't be getting social security and medicare, they'll have to work longer many and millennials are saying we're going to retire nine years earlier. >> maria: i think that's pipedream, retiring at 56. i don't think where they're getting the idea they'll retire at 56 and become millionaires. >> this is 1500 americans done by td ameritrade. a lot of the studies that come
7:48 am
out, it's great publicity to the bank but it's also to get people to invest and use their services. i'm taking it with a grain of salt. >> maria: are you expecting to be a millionaire? >> i'm hoping we have our bosses watching, because they can dictate that answer. so if you're watching, i have a long to go but know that i'm open to that prospect. >> maria: to becoming a a millionaire. >> oh, yes. >> maria: what about you, morgan? you're a millennial. >> i feel like my mother called christina, talking about putting off having children. why do you think millennials, does the study show why they're pushing off children? is it totally economics? for me, i'm just immature. it's not economics. maybe that's part of the millennial problem. >> i've done this report relating to other. report focused on financials. overall, people are waiting. myself, as an example. i'm not married. i'm in the later half of the
7:49 am
millennials. i have no children. i want to make sure my career is established because the financials, i don't think i can afford to have a child in new york city. i just moved here. you have to put your children in thatore they're born, put them on a list. >> maria: it's expensive. laughter ]llennia myself -- >> i'm hoping to be part of that 4%. >4%. >> are you already at the 4%? >> not yet. i'm aspiring to that. you said if you take yourself personally, i doubt you'll be retired at 56. >> i don't want to be retired at 56. i think i would be bore. >> maria: it's not healthy to be retired at 56, even if you change jobs, and you do something else. but to go and hit the hammock at 56 is not smart. >> over the next 30 years, between the lip and the cup, they'll go beyond 56, let me say that. >> maria: ream quick about the report, -- real quick about the report, giving it away. >> there was another report and they are saying that right now in 2017 we hit a record in terms of charitable donations at
7:50 am
$400 billion, this is americans that are giving more than ever. they're citing the reasons for this, and this is coming from indiana university, because of a strong stock market and just everybody -- the growth in the economy doing well. th caveat there is that there's a smaller portiomericans giving money. so maybe we're starting to see that income divide even even showing with donation. >> the interesting thing is how the tax code changes. >> i didn't even get to that. >> they raised the standard deduction, there's less incentive in the tax code to give charitable deductions. we want you to come back next ar and tell us if that number is changed. >> maria: another reason to love america, the most fill a phiantc country in the world. >> maria: the world cup in 2026 will be in the us, canada and mexico. this comes hours before the tournament kicks off on fox. we have all the big news on the world cup, next. ♪

8:24 am
thanks for joining us. >> nice to be here. >> reaction takeaway from summit. >> a good start. it was a success for the president also a success for kim jong-un. basic deal is -- kim said he was committed to denuclearization, the president promised there would be some security assurances that would be given down the road. now it is over to secretary of pompeo, to begin negotiations hopeful as the president suggested, kim jong-un will also yun latly start dismantling this is nuclear program would be a real confidence best i remembered so hopefully both of those things will occur in parallel. >> one of the things that secretary pompeo will do be explaining, the president's comments about the so-called war gales or military exercises conducted between u.s. and south korea the white house now says the u.s. military, will continue to train with south o korean counterparts conduct military drills not large scale joint

8:37 am
repair finances so far five months in data sports consumers slowed spending pacing of spending growth half real sales a quarter pace leading up to tax cuts, and savings have increased and credit card borrowing importantly has slowed dramatically, so people are paying down debt they are using the tax cut for positive things ultimately this is great for the consumer in long term to repair finances it is just a problem, for the stock market, which is discounting 24 1/2% growth in earnings as kind of indicative of our future. >> don't you feel all bad news? the real sales numbers picked up from earlier in theier i am seeing for ary a lot of second quarter growth near 4% after producer growth first quarter so looks like unlike europe u.s. is seeing a little bit of spring pickup in growth produce not seeing that spring
