6:04 am
for joining us. jon: well, there's a lot of confusion in washington and at the border. you know, at the border the question the president reverses policy of separating families and the question is how they will go ahead with prosecutions, do they have facilities to house families together and do they have the lawyers to prosecute the cases. here in washington the question is, you know, what are they going to do on immigration legislation, they were supposed to be a vote yesterday on a compromise bill between conservatives and they theyed the vote next week. we are on an uncertain moment where policy goes. dagen: jon, wall street journal page story goes in in-depth on this issue and there's confusion between the pentagon because they received a request from the department of health and human
6:05 am
services to provide 20,000 temporary beds for unaccompanied imtbreant children at department of defense installations but then when y'all e-mailed health and human services they couldn't even answer e-mail questions on this issue and then you have the problems actually at the border with border agents and the people on the front line there not knowing how to handle these families. jon: that's absolutely right. this is a policy made as we speak and what we have is the administrative arms of the government, hhs and the pentagon trying to figure out how to implement the president's order and it's got to get sorted out because the serious resource question here is as you talk about the beds, you know, where we are going to put all of the families that we are trying to keep together. maria: then there's trade, jon, the other big story we are covering all week. european union confirming it will slap tariffs on three and a half

6:07 am
tell you that tariffs and trade wars are bad for the economy, it's not showing up in the u.s. economy right now. we have an economy that's growing something like 4% in the second quarter while europe is slowing down, so in terms of growth, the u.s. has an upper hand with the rest of the world at the moment. maria: we will see about that. we are certainly watching growth to see if there's impact here. jon, good to see you, thanks so much. have a good weekend. breaking overnight, bomb threat closes in the middle of rush hour. less than month of reboot of roseanne's tv show a new spin-off gets the green light, will not mention the star, back in a minute. brighthouse financial

6:11 am
foley. >> charles krauthammer lived his life telling others exactly what he thought. >> you will betray not saying what you think and not honestly and bluntly. >> that was the quality that brought charles to fox news channel. >> this is not a potential tv star, in fact, he became a huge star even i would say a mega star on the channel and it was the force of intellect and the power of thinking and on top of that, it was a gentleness. he disagreed with you. >> he was the leader because of his delivery, intellect. >> special report stage manager was onset with charles every night for years. >> kind of ongoing joke on the panel that bret baier has a signal when people need to wrap
6:12 am
up, bret puts his arm out and charles was on the show forever and we office laughed, i don't think he paid attention to that once. if he had something to say, he was going to stay it. no time constraints were going to hold him on that. >> born in new york to jewish participants that left world war ii era. >> his model was i want you to know everything, i want you to learn everything, you don't have to do everything but you have to know everything, he thought that was part of life. >> the family lived in montreal and summered in long-beach new york. >> very difficult childhood. my brother and i were inseparable. i got used to being around the big boys, that's how you get toughened up. >> as senior, krauthammer became attracted to political journalism and was accept today harvard but krauthammer enrolled

6:15 am
charles put together a piece and i read it many times and holds up so well. i think charles discovered then that there really was a lot to reagan. >> but it would take years before charles fully embraced domestic conservative ideals. >> it took me about a decade. i was skeptical of tax cuts and smaller federal government and by the end of the 80's i had begun to change. in 1985 his son was born and two years later charles won the biggest prize in journalism, pulitzer price. the evens -- events of 2011 that brought forceful tone of commentary and regular spot at panel. over the years, charles became an audience favorite. >> the biggest error that we make to lose the damn war because we refuse to recognize who the enemy and for god sakes, why do you to talk about that. the morning is over.
6:16 am
and if you're a conservative you should be optimistic. i think it'll snow in hell before the doj is going to go after her. we all were expecting, it didn't happen. that was the dog that didn't bark. >> despite accomplishments, awards and high-profile endorsements, krauthammer was humble and uneasy with the influence that his words held. >> i find it worrisome, the reason when i was totally unknown i could say anything i dam well pleased. maria: oh, god, i loved that he was true to his hater, true what he saw as honest, in other words, he was first a democrat and then he didn't like some of the policies, he saw policies different, he was true to that and i love that he said what he felt, he was honest. dagen: that's why you didn't have to know charles krauthammer, you didn't have to meet him to love him and adore him and respect him and since charles has been sick last year, i know that special report in
6:17 am
the bret baier team were getting literally thousands and thousands of emails asking how he was doing. he had soaring intellect and brilliance, gift with words both spoken and written and that's how he really touched people and thank you to charles for everything that he's given us but for writing that good-bye letter to us and letting us say good-bye to him and i think that that was closure. maria: that's true. dagen: but we will always remember him. maria: that good-bye letter was incredible. we will be right back. ♪ ♪ your insurance rates skyrocket after a scratch

>> it was a great meeting and kim jong un will turn down and i will tell, he will turn, chairman kim will turn that country into a great successful country. maria: president trump wednesday night outlining his vision of north korea, should foreign relations continue? the two koreans some day will be unified and vast opportunities lie ahead and north of dmz. joining us joseph king, ceo, dr. kim, good to see you, thank you so much for joining us. >> great to be here. maria: you have been to korea 70 times over the years. tell us how it's changed and what kind of opportunity you do envision? >> absolutely, thank you, great to be here. koreas are right now especially in seoul it's very buzzed with excitement and great optimism of
6:22 am
peace, you know, so about 15 miles away from the border and within range of north korea, so they are always a threat, vibrant economy. twelfth largest economy in the world and the prospects of having unified korea, i think, is a great thing. maria: you believe it, you believe that perhaps he will denuclearize? >> i believe so. there's so much opportunity with that because as a hermit kingdom, you cannot continue the way it is. kevin: how big impediment is china in this situation? if you look at south korea and you look at allies versus north korea and their allies and you see south korea is completely predicated on, you know, the global supply chain especially when it comes to technology and when you look at their neighbors to the north it's more minerals,
6:23 am
resources and that's more in the chinese camp, what they want especially for ambitions and their 2025 plan, so where does this play out in china's role in that? >> well, china is absolutely important for the korean peninsula. south korea -- china is south south korea's largest trading partner right now. it's not the u.s. and japan and north korea and china really encompasses the neighborhood. it really is going to be the progress in korean peninsula is going to be predicated on the progress between the progress between u.s. and china relations. china is the big brother for north korea. lee: so i have a question, so here in the states, just over 50% of americans think that the deal that was made between donald trump and kim jong un was the right move, it was a step in the right direction and they think that this is going to be the future of a great
6:24 am
relationship. how do people in south korea, do they have the same level of trust or optimistic or is it a different landscape? >> i think it's a guarded optimism. i think they feel that it is a step -- strong step forward. obviously a lot of hard work needs to be done but the way it has been for the last 50 years it's not sustainable so they believe the two leaderships from kim jong un and president donald trump perhaps will provide the out of the box thinking and progress. dagen: in terms of the economy, the limited economy within north korea, what would north korea bring to the rest of the world? it's hard to separate what is going on in terms of the nuclear aggression, the human rights abuses within that country by the kim regular -- regime, but what would country bring to the
6:25 am
world and intellect? >> it is believed that north korea has one of the largest reserves for rare minerals and $6 trillion of minerals within their country. obviously south korea and north korea have the same gdp in 1976 and so the government actually does matter, the policies matter. i think the better or even unified koreas can utilize the resources and the vibrant economy of the south along with potential larger labor pool from north korea to make the koreas, collective koreans even better. maria: minerals, energy, you point to south korean companies, hyundai and samsung as perhaps possibility waiting in the wings for north korea to open up. what kind of business would open
6:26 am
up? >> well, i think a lot of the industries -- growth industries, technology, just think about it. there's really no infrastructure in north korea. so a lot of the tech and infrastructure, roads, construction to start with, i think president trump had a promotional video with condos in the coast of north korea. it's a blank canvas. maria: you're the ceo of inovio, where's the growth of inovio? >> we have businesses in korea, we have partnerships in china, we are seeking partnerships all across europe and japan and elsewhere in asia, so we are developing new cancer therapies based on empowering the patient's own immune system called immuno therapies, we have pivotal studies going on for treating cervical precancer and
6:27 am
cancers. maria: we will leave it there. dr. kim, good to see you. dr. joseph kim there. chipotle taking cue, mexican flair. losing its shine, we will tell you why back in a minute right here. thank you so much.

>> you can't say here. maria: the highly anticipated jurassic world hits theaters. the top story looking to rebound, the dow is in the midst of the longest losing streak since march, joining us is sean o'hara. what are you watching? where do you see the flow? >> such great economic news, low inflation, low interest rates and good earnings and every day there is a headline that gets in the way, the market is skittish trying to figure out what is real and what is not and can this market sustain itself based on earnings? maria: are investors changing where they put money? >> flows coming into
6:33 am
strategies, moving in and out of equities. we see big flows into high-quality value strategies like task house. and on the technology side, and tariffs and things of that nature, and added macy's to the portfolio. and dick's sporting-goods and footlocker, there have been amazing stocks. they are more resilient because they are so inexpensive versus free cash flow and if you are worried about trade, you can move that. and you like shipmakers, micron technology and if you're interested in the internet of
6:34 am
things and artificial intelligence, it is critical to that. very inexpensive stock. >> he won the most important things like retail sales showing it completely blue away expectations so the consumers talking about economic data, we saw interesting things out of the supreme court. the sales tax, that was all the fervor, and the retail story going forward so the retail apocalypses over. what do you see? >> they figured out how to manage in this new world, e-commerce is 10% of sales and projected to go to 15%. 80% of sales on brick and mortar, still it is not going to 0, you have operators who figured out supply chain logistics, bad stores don't produce the right amount of revenue or profit and they come through this all day.
6:35 am
the e-commerce story is interesting. when you press send on your computer to buy something online to when they press your doorbell you can track the transaction through publicly traded real estate, cell phone towers, data centers which is a huge growing business that happens to be in a bad neighborhood but when you look at the cell phone towers, their business will continue to grow and a secondary piece of this. it relies on the infrastructure and has to grow, we launched a real estate etf that owns that leg of it. >> 80% of internet traffic goes through their servers. and they had their analyst day

6:37 am
ai, autonomous driving, we will have a refrigerator. and that is connected to cell phone networks. that is a long way to go, it is not done without the chips. >> the rules that states can collect sales taxes, it doesn't impact the largest 100 internet retailers, 96% of sales from the top 100 internet retailers already taxed. it does potentially open the door for states in dire financial straits like connecticut, to say we will not only force collection of sales taxes but let's start taxing not just web purchases but streaming services and things like that.
6:38 am
that is one of the confirms the wall street journal points out today which investment managers, the bottom line impact on all internet related businesses. maria: when the rule that they weren't paying taxes was first implemented, online shopping wasn't where it is today. >> the original ruling. maria: online is so strong. >> it is 10% of overall sales but retail real estate is 7%. >> shouldn't we have the beatles on the taxman paying in the background? dagen: states increasing authority to collect taxes from internet businesses and you have the tariffs, those are a tax. tariffs are taxes. i was finishing a thought about the tariff thing, taxes, tariffs are taxes and that is something markets --
6:39 am
>> nobody argued that. >> there is a way to deal with that, to buy small caps and mid-caps, best performers are small caps or to look for companies that don't necessarily have a cross-border business, and the market has overall strength to plow through impediments. dagen: states and investors haven't figured out tariffs are attacks, you have internet taxes going up, tariffs equating taxes getting more. >> maybe the trade situations. and don't know right now. >> underlying fundamentals are great. maria: it is uncertainty.
6:40 am
>> what the general population thinks, and it is not certain. >> i put you on and look at the future. and -- maria: you would be putting new money to work in this market. >> if we rebalanced our portfolios, there are four of those. we increase the dividend and quality of what we own. we focus on big indexes, the dow and s&p had nasdaq, investors should be investors, buying things based on solid fundamentals, relative to everything else and make money in the long run. maria: we have a rally underway with the dow up 112. a bomb threat in london? a train station closed during

>> maria: good friday morning. welcome back. thanks so much for joining us this morning. i'm maria bartiromo. it's friday, june 22nd. your top stories right now. markets rebounding this morning after a week filled with fears of a trade war. the s&p 500 is a half a percent, 12 points higher and the nasdaq up a third of a percent, 26 points higher. tariff concerns weighed on markets yesterday, the dow closing down for an eighth day in a row, the longest losing streak since march of last year. the nasdaq was down 68 points yesterday. in europe this morning, similar story to futures this morning and they are up, stocks are higher with the fq100 up almost a percent, as is the cac, the dax index in germany up a half a percent right now n asia overnight markets closed mostly high wear the exception of -- higher with the exception of japan. opec is set to deliver a decision on whether or not to increase output this morning. crude oil is up 1.25% ahead of
6:59 am
the news. we will bring you the opec decision as soon as it hits the tape. the immigration overhaul on hold for now. house republicans delayed a vote on a compromise bill until next week after a measure failed to gain traction. >> when you looked at the earlier vote today you saw a wide range of republicans voting yes. you didn't see one democrat voting yes. clearly, the democrats don't want this issue. they want to keep exploiting kids and other people. >> we have a lot of different fractions -- factions in our conference. this is one of the better conferences i've been to where everybody is trying to get together as a team. >> maria: president trump just tweeting about the bill, saying even if we get 100 republican votes in the senate, we need 1 0 democrat votes to get a much needed immigration bill and the dems are obstructionist and they won't give votes for political
7:00 am
reasons. we need to elect more republicans. the latest in the immigration debate coming this morning. a shocking new report on thely youtube -- deadly uber self driving car crash in arizona. investigators discovered the driver behind the wheel was watching hulu. a big win for brick and mortar. the supreme court ruling the states can force online retailers to pay sales tax. the impact coming up. gm taking on jeep by bringing back the blazer. our first look at the modern take of an old classic. plus, the future of fast food is here, the first entirely robot made burger taking on san francisco. we'll bring you there, coming up this morning. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, kevin kelly and lee carter. great to see you this morning. >> great to be here. >> maria: a lot going on. >> it's disheartening to learn the driver was watching hulu. that's unbelievable. >> this is one of the reasons when i look at self-driving cars that they take away the steering
7:01 am
wheel, it makes me afraid to think the driver won't be paying attention and can't overtake the car. at some point, if your iphone reboots, how will that happen? >> tesla makes you put your hands on the steering wheel every few seconds because they send a signal out. the fascinating aspect, if we get to autonomous driving vehicles, they'll send 100 gigabytes per minute of data in and out. it's unbelievable all the things that are -- all the technology that's happening around it. it's sending signals to tower, other cars, to street lights. it's unbelievable. >> maria: it's unfortunate. and we keep seeing that, that the driver was doing something else. >> it's the driver, not the car. >> dagen: the driver was a convicted felon too. >> maria: there's that as well. >> dagen: another issue for uber. >> maria: all those technology names like amazon, facebook, netflix, all hitting highs. this was before the online --
7:02 am
the scotus online tax, the sales tax ruling. >> one of the reasons you've seen that is because the tax reform that happened in december, companies are deploying capital and reinvesting in their own business. they're doing it through technology. cisco, can you look at their guidance going forward. if you're looking to do cap ex, it's cap ex in technology. >> maria: we're going to talk about that this morning. joining the conversation, kevin hassette is with us this morning and texas congressman jeb hensling is here as well as alan dershowitz her is here. we kick off with this top story, it is immigration. the immigration reform has been delayed again. the house failing to pass a conservative bill yesterday and the leadership postponed a vote on a moderate version until next week. steve scalise commenting on where his party stands in getting the votes to fix the issue. >> we're going to keep working
7:03 am
with our members. we had a very productive meeting and you saw all the members that represent different viewpoints on immigration within the republican conference, we have a wide array of viewpoints but everybody wants to solve this problem and i think that's what's been most encouraging when you looked at the earlier vote today. you saw a wide range of republicans voting yes. you didn't see one democrat voting yes. clearly, the democrats don't want this issue. they want to keep exploiting kids and other people. we want to solve this problem. >> maria: joining us right now is house financial services committee member, congressman claudia tenney of new york. it's good to see you this morning. >> good morning. great to be on. >> maria: are you prepared to vote on a moderate immigration bill. >> i'm not sure that one's coming. we had the goodlatte one of which i am a sponsor. there was a discharge petition which we averted. next week, we'll put it off
7:04 am
after a long conference yesterday, hearing from a wide ranging number of views on the republican side and congressman steve scalise indicated we had a very long conversation with many, many views and i think it's really disapointing that the democrats haven't come on and joined us for this. it's a very important issue. there's some real key issues. security is paramount. we need to secure our border. we need to keep americans safe. and that's where the conservatives come in and that's where the president wants the money and the funding for the wall. on the other side of immigration there's a debate about how you get there and how we deal with the population that's are here, the so-called daca population and how to deal with new immigrants coming in. i'm very conservative but at the same time i look at this, do we really want to have only a merit based -- i mean merit based, only bringing in engineers, lawyers, doctors, people with advanced degrees or do we want all kinds of people in, people who want to be part of the
7:05 am
american dream, the so-called social contract where we actually bring in americans who care about freedom and care about supporting the kind of government that we have, a constitutional republic. we need to bring people as the statue of liberty says, bring us everyone, not just people who are going to be here to fill the h2v visa jobs or whatever. some good points have been made on both sides. i would like to see us secure the border, make sure dangerous criminals aren't coming across the border, make sure american citizens are not at risk and make sure we deal with people who want to come here legally to live the american dream and live up to our values and be part of what this country stands for, preserving freedom, preserving rights and preserving the rule of law. >> maria: you make a lot of good points. >> i'm really curious. i saw polling out of california looking at the primaries that said 80% of californians wanted to see bipartisan immigration reform where there are compromises on both sides of the aisle. that's a left-leaning state.
7:06 am
yet, democrats aren't willing to come to the table. are there any democrats that you know of in congress right now that are willing to have a conversation and say let's get something done. >> last night i had an interesting conversation on fox news with congressman jerimandi from california who said i want to work with you. we got off the set and he said let's come up with a bipartisan solution. i would love to do that. every bill i put out has been a bipartisan solution. let's come up with that let's stop using as congressman scalise referred to this issue to divide and to use as just a campaign piece. we are genuinely interested. if you were sitting in the republican conference yesterday, there is genuine interest to say what do we need to do to solve this problem. this is a major problem and i hear that oh, it's all just politics. not so if you were sitting in our debate yesterday.
7:07 am
people have legitimate concerns. they want to deal with the immigration issue. i think we need to come to a conclusion on this. it's not going to be easy. i think we're willing to do the hard work. that was very evident yesterday in our conference. >> maria: steve scalise said the democrats don't want to be part of this. you mentioned your interview last night. the president tweeted about this moments ago. he said elect more republicans in november and we will pass the finest, fairest and most comprehensive immigration bills anywhere in the world. right now we have the dumbest and the worst. dems are doing nothing but on instructing. remember their motto, resist. ours is produce. your reaction to that, congresswoman? are you getting that kind of inaction from the other side? >> that's how it appears. we don't seem to see any democrats wanting to vote for any of the bills or any of the issues we have. we extended the olive branch yesterday obviously with my colleague from california and said let's get together and fix this. we have come monda monday inter- common interests.
7:08 am
let's come together. ing th i think the president is right, how bad for the democrats to cleve to some notion of resist. shouldn't we do something to help the american people instead of resisting the president. the president is open-minded. the president likes to compromise, he likes to get us together and come up with a solution. i look at us as the republicans are very diverse in our views. we are like a coalition government. we have so many different views in one party the democrats seem to just be one-sided and it is resist. it is no matter how good the solution is, no matter what we put forth, they are determined to just say no and just resist us. and they can say we did that in the past under president obama. but under president obama he got many, many pieces of legislation passed with the republican house and senate. so we are out here trying to say help us. they didn't help us with tax reform. look how great tax reform is working. today is the six month anniversary of tax reform and it is doing so well in my district.
7:09 am
all you hear from the democrats, i sit in the financial services committee, day in and day out is how terrible tax reform is. i asked all of them come up to ny22, central new york and talk to the businesses. i visited 40 or 50 so far since tax reform, and ask them how is tax reform working for you. our lower and middle income taxpayers are loving it. >> maria: we've seen it in the economic growth numbers, talking about 4% growth. we know that. are you going to do a tax cut -- >> you can't deny it. >> maria: are you going to do a tax cut 2.0. >> i would love to see is go deeper and stronger with the tax cuts, do more for the small business community. we're seeing vibrancy, even in my community which has seen unsustainable losses over the years. it's been a great thing for us. i was hard to get to on that. kevin brady did an excellent job in compromising and helping us
7:10 am
with state and local tax deductions, helping with child care credits. we worked with ivanka trump to help small businesses, our women owned businesses, women in the workplace who want to have child care, the security to know their children will be with safe and secure child care. there's a lot of really good things going on and the democrats seem to want to just denounce everything we've done, resist. >> maria: want to impeach the president, we know that. >> exactly. it's the impeachment caucus that they're trying to put in. i actually think at this point with immigration, something this important, get on board with us, make the immigration problem something that is a bipartisan solution so they can also do as well as we're doing with tax reform. i think the opportunity is here. we have an unusual president who is willing to take risks. he's willing to make compromises. i think this is really an opportunity for them to jump on-board. they missed the train on tax reform. get on board now. >> maria: they have to explain
7:11 am
that i expect going into the midterms, why not one of them voted for the tax package. real quick, th farm bill passed yesterday. you mentioned your district will have an impact. >> the problem with my district is we've been on pressed by new york state government. we have the highest energy costs in the nation, very high regulatory and tax burdens, especially the property tax. farmers have large -- >> maria: the governor is suing the federal government over immigration. >> is i objec incredible. the farm bill did pass work requirements for the s.n.a.p. program. that's not going to impact us so much, s.n.a.p. is a much maligned program. most recipients on average are only on the program, the food stamp program for only about 10 months. when everyone thinks it's generations of dependency, it's not. when it comes to our dairy farmers, they're dealing with a
7:12 am
labor crisis and dealing with high costs of competing with nearby states like pennsylvania that has the federal minimum wager,wage, not the new york imd minimum wage which will go up to $12 an hour which makes it less exeat tier for dairy -- competitive for dairy farmers. we need to compete against canada around the nation. canada is actually cheating on their class 7 dairy pricing which is hurting our dairy farmers. we asked them to realign the pricing. we lost $58 million annually just from the change in canada's dairy pricing. so we're doing everything we can to help our dairy farmers. the farm bill helped us a little bit but we need to really do more in terms of helping our farmers deal with the pricing and cost of milk and the unprecedented lows that we're seeing in the federal milk order. >> maria: are you worried about the tariffs then? >> i'm a little worried about some of the tariffs. i outline the class 7 dairy pricing, that's the milk powders
7:13 am
that are being dumped into the united states and it particularly hurts new york, number three dairy producer. we're concerned about it. we want to see the president renegotiate nafta and make it more palatable and fairer for new york farmers to compete. we have wonderful agricultural products. new york is one of the top dairy states and agriculture is the number one industry in new york state. >> maria: great to see you. thanks so much. we'll see you soon. breaking news, the president its just tweeting on immigration, he says this, republicans should stop w5e69ing their time on -- wasting their time on immigration until w after we elt more men and women in november. we could pass great legislation after the red wave. the red wave, he writes, dagen. >> dagen: the red wave, not the blue wave. we shall see. but this administration needs to get its arms around the crisis at the border because of this
7:14 am
zero tolerance policy, lots of confusion particularly at human services that is responsible for handling those very children and housing them. so again, somebody came up with this idea around the conference table and nobody thought about the execution. again, the people in that white house are not doing this president favors. >> maria: by not executing well. >> dagen: right. the travel ban, the tariff rollout and now this. the president has incredible insights, great ideas. this was badly executed. >> very badly executed. i would argue there will be no red wave in november unless they get this solved now. >> maria: when we come back, new revelations about the moments before a fatal crash by a self-driving uber. officials say the safety driver was streaming a show on her phone, watching hug hulu. the latest on the investigation. plus, burger bought, a robot promises to create the freshest made to order burger, we'll find out if it's a cut above, back in

>> maria: welcome back. opec set to deliver a decision on whether or not to increase output this morning at the opec meeting in vienna. crude oil is up 1.25% ahead of the decision. joining us rights now is andy lpow. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> maria: your expectations for this meeting? >> well, i expect that opec and opec producers will agree to a 1 million-barrel a day in production. that will be the headline number. in reality, they'll take that 1 million barrels and reallocate
7:24 am
it amongst all of them and the actual increase will be 600,000 barrels a day. >> isn't that because not all the countries can actually produce to get up to the million barrels a day so we'll see saudi arabia do it. who is the other marginal producer in opec right now and will that 1 million-barrels include russia who is actually now aligning themselves with opec? >> well, it will include russia and the other producers in opec are the united arab emirates and cukuwaitis could produce production. others are at capacity. >> they can't produce any more barrels. so what you're saying is in order for actually opec to sway prices on oil now and going into the future it would have to be saudi arabia or russia or the kuwaitis increasing their output because the efficacy of opec has been diminished.
7:25 am
>> that's exactly right. if you look around, the fact is that venezuelan oil production has declined and will continue to do so. we just saw some violence in libya that took 400,000 barrels a day off the market. investment in angola has been limited so their production has been declining. so it just really leaves a few countries in the gulf to increase production to satisfy increasing world demand. >> one of the interesting aspects is are we seeing shale producers increase their output to make up for the lack of demand? i know we're exporting oil. is the marginal shale producer at capacity? >> well, they're only limited actually by the pipeline take-away capacity coming out of the permian basin. as we see it right now, all those pipelines are full. it's very expensive to use rail and truck and as you know, it's very difficult to even find a truck driver. so the shale produc producers ae
7:26 am
waiting on more pipeline capacity. we're not going to see that in a significant amount until the latter half of 2019. >> the wall street journal has a cover story about oil and it says without companies spending on new oil production, the world could slip into a supply crunch after 2020. how do you react to that? how do you see that? >> well, i do agree with them because we do have natural declines in existing oil fields and the fact is that world oil demand in the next couple years continues to grow. you see that through the international energy agency's forecast and here in the u.s. we're expecting a record gasoline driving season coming up. so it's very hard with the world economic growth to see decline in oil consumption. >> maria: so $66.38 is where oil is now. what's your expectations in terms of a range for the price? >> well, i think that you're going to see wti increase to $70 a barrel by the end of the year and on the brent side that
7:27 am
should tick up to between $78 and $80 a barrel, boosted by demand. >> maria: and demand being the result of a good economy. >> well, exactly. we're seeing growth not only here in the u.s. but in europe and elsewhere and the higher oil prices of course help demand throughout the middle east as well as those other oil producers. >> maria: do you think gasoline follows wtu up this summer, obviously the summer driving season upon us. >> generally speaking it will. gasoline supplies are more than adequate to meet the demand for the upcoming season. i think that gasoline price increases are going to be tempered. right now, the national average is $2.86 this morning. i think we'll be in a range of between $2.80 and $2.90. >> maria: we'll leave it there. andy, good to see you. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> maria: what a week, a lot of news, we had a great program here. check out the top moments from
7:28 am
the show this week. >> you've been following immigration for the last few years, it's been probably one of the thorniest issues within republican ranks. democrats don't want to solve the problem. they want a political issue. they've been opposing every effort to reform the broken immigration laws. >> house republicans, we took up a measure. it resolved the issue of the dreamers. it provided for border security. we got rid of the diversity lottery. we put measures in place that will change this from family to merit so we start attracting the world's best. >> what they should do is come back with a narrowly drawn bill that both keeps families together, allows for inspection in terms of exploiting children through sexual trafficking, which is a big part of this. >> i understand the emotions of this. i think we should look for a solution but i don't think everybody should say oh, we're doing this or people are doing this on purpose because they want to separate the kids. i think people truly do and are concerned about the safety of
7:29 am
the children. >> people are passionate on both sides and that's why it's important that we in congress fix this, come up with a solution and try to tone the anger down. >> i never got leaked information from any fbi agent. i haven't talked to an on-duty fbi agent except for background checks in a couple years. the information he he's talking about came from retired fbi agents who were speculating about what was going to go on. we knew it would blow up. we knew just by instinct that the new york office was enraged by what comey had done. >> be purpose of the trump tariffs on high technology, they're very targeted, is to defend our industries here in america. if we get the e.u. to lower tariff barriers down instead of germany selling us three cars for every one we sell them it will be more fair. detroit will boom and that's good for america. >> people are very confident. the problem is that this confidence can relate to over-spending when you start to look at retail sales.
7:30 am
the increased spending in restaurants, home improvement stores, all indicate that it's summertime. >> here's the real pain. i'm getting hundreds of calls about people concerned about their pension. it will be devastating to hundreds of thousands of employees and retirees should that happen, maria. so it's a sad day. >> it's expensive, intimidating and complex. we realized the opportunity and started wine society. >> she's 13 years old and the ceo of zoli pops and a millionaire. >> i went to the bank with my dad and they offered me a lollipop. my dad said i shouldn't have it because it's terrible for my teeth. >> dagen: russia was not prepared for this much beer drinking at the world cup. the kegs are getting low in moscow and soccer fans invaded the city. >> maria: maybe it's time to crack open the vodka once again. >> this is the world's most

7:37 am
almost exactly 20 years since you and i were first on tv together. we've been talking about tax reform almost the whole time. how many times have you interviewed me and i said if we cut the corporate rate we could get a big explosion in capital spending and that would be great for the economy. that's what happened. our models said that investment spending would go up about 9% because of the tax reform. did you notice what it went up in the first quarter? 9%. we've got a capital spending boom going on right now that's going to continue for really we think three to five years and it's going to lift wages and output and give us 3% gdp growth like president trump promised. >> maria: 3% gdp growth you're expecting for a couple years. >> more than that. >> maria: there's a narrative that things will slow down in 2020 when you consider the fact that interest rates are going higher, demographics for whatever reason we're in 10 years of this recovery. you're not seeing it. there's conversation about a recession possibly happening in 2020 or beyond. >> i hear people saying that. i don't agree with that.

this is a game changer that you and i have been talking about for 20 years. it took that long to get it done. president trump got it done. it will take a while for all the positive effects to come back. if you look at data that came out this week, did you notice that u.s. foreign directed investment by u.s. multinationals, moving jobs overseas declined in the first quarter by more than $400 billion. at the same time, u.s. firms brought home to create jobs here in the u.s. more than $300 billion. both of these numbers were the biggest since world war ii. this is going to be a fundamental game changer. >> maria: a poll out early this week found that satisfaction with the direction of the country has reached 12 year high. on wednesday, president trump set the record straight that this is his economy. listen to what he said. >> because i hear a couple of the fakeers the other day say i think it's obama's economy. obama's economy?
7:39 am
obama. [boos] >> they would have put on more regulation, they want to take back the tax cuts, which are massive, they want to take them back and they want to raise your taxes and the whole thing will go boom. >> maria: he loves riling up the crowd. it's great. satisfaction rate hitting a 12 year high. what about that? if we were to see a change in november, how likely is it that nancy pelosi leads a revolution in terms of changing this and taking back these tax cuts? >> if i were nancy pelosi and the democrats, i would be really nervous about the fact that the economy's doing precisely what president trump and his team have been saying it would do which is growing at 3%. remember, they said it was impossible that we were stuck at 1.5%. in 2016, president obama's last year, the big ree regulations ah taxes were so terrible.
7:40 am
now we've got a boom they said was impossible happening. one of the things i saw in that l poll that your staff was kind enough to e-mail to me was that satisfaction with the economy is at 65. the satisfaction of the economy is about as good as i've ever seen, maybe going back to the first time i was on your show in the late '90s. satisfaction with the economy is enormous. there's a lot of political tension because we're divided as a nation. as people look at the economy, they're going to recognize that presidenthat's policy -- that pt trump's policies are delivering. >> maria: how should we look at the tariffs? there's a feeling that the tariffs obviously are a tax and that's going to impact the economic growth that we've seen as a result of the tax reform package. are you worried that things are going to start getting expensive because of the president's policies on trade and tariffs and perhaps that cuts into growth. >> well, i think the president
7:41 am
is a disrupter. he disrupts terrible policies. one of the terrible policies for american workers is that other countries have much higher tariff barriers and tariffs, nontariff barriers and tariffs on our stuff than we have on their stuff. if he accomplishes that's a positive for the u.s. economy. that must be what firms are thinking. if foreign investment is dropping and capital spending and new job creation in the u.s. is so high, it must be people are looking forward to a positive equilibrium. >> maria: the e.u.'s tariffs against the u.s. go into effect today. we're talking about motorcycles, peanut butter, bourbon, cranberries, orange juice, to name a few of the products that will be taxed. is it fair to say those products will likely see increases in prices? >> yeah, i think it's fair to say that those industries will suffer because the european tariffs and then think about that thought, right, so the europeans have a 10% tariff on
7:42 am
our automobiles which is in place before president trump did anything and those 10% tariff% harmful to american workers. president trump's position is just enough, enough. you heard at the g-7, he said let's go to zero. he wants a better world with more free trade that's similar metric. >> maria: we'll be watching this. congrats on the passage of tax reform, a good look there. coming up, military pilots are under attack from lasers. we have the story coming up. a warning for parents, some summer toys could leave kids seriously hurt. find out the worst toys for your kids, we've got the list. back in a minute. ♪ i really want to love somebody. ♪ i really want to dance the night away. ♪ i know we're only halfway there.

the day after chemo might mean a trip back to the doctor's office, just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home, with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease.

7:52 am
collect sales tax. joining us right now is tom mcgee. tom, good to see you. >> thank you for having me. >> maria: the impact of this, how do you see it. >> first of all, we're thrilled with the decision. we think it's a real victory for market principles. the court identified there was an unlevel playing field for brick and mortar retailers. this is something we advocated for years around. i think what you'll see now is many states following the lead of south dakota and implementing similar pieces of legislation. >> maria: initially online shopping wasn't as robust as it is today. it's hard to make the argument that they shouldn't pay taxes today. >> they have a virtual presence in every state. so i think it's a different world than the decision was back in 1992 which was made in an era of mail order, well before online shopping became a reality. >> one of the biggest things is e-commerce growth has been 162%.
7:53 am
one of the fascinating things came out of recon, it was fascinating to me because home doughomedepot said we've got 55n square feet of distribution space. it's taken us 40 years to get there. we're general to double it in the next -- we're going to double it in the next five years. where do you see brick and mortar retailers going? will they use their own stores as their own warehouses to do shipping around the country. industrial real estate rent is up 9% so far. >> i think you'll see some of that. the physical store is the ability to solve the next mile. what you're seeing retailers do is invest in physical store networks, creating that kind of experience we're talking about. whether you're a large established retailer like large department stores, they're now investing and reinvigorating and digitally native retailers are investing in stores. the most recent round of vc funding for a young, digitally

security and economic security, and rule of law, and we need to get even more unified around a position, so listen i will let speaker and president work out the timing but we need to get this done. >> congressman tenney was on show said definitely bipartisan interest in getting something done right now, despite the fact there is nothing but resist on side of democrats and media are you having conversations across the aisle saying we want to make a deal here and get something done for the american people? >> well, i am permanently working on cap markets legislation myself as chairman of the house financial services committee. so i must admit in democrats that i talk to i am not seeing a lot of interest, i mean face it in january, this president put a very generous offer on the table, to deal with even more dreamers than the democrats had even brought to the table. and that was rejected i fear
8:06 am
particularly the democrat leadership is more interested in exploiting the problem than solving the problem there may be a democrats talking to chairman goodlatte or chairman mccaul they are not talking to me. >> have you had communication with the administration on how they are handling or fallen through on the president's executive order to keep families together? when they illegally try to cross the border? because, certainly there is a lot of confusion between the different agencies, whether this is department of defense, helping human services who is responsible for taking care of young individual young migrants who across the border, again, it is even an issue how as if can government find facilities to house families can you give us an update on that? because with the republican in the white house, ultimately, the proclaim is also false on you the republicans in congress. >> well, personally have not
8:07 am
spoken to the administration about this but as a member of congress from texas i have been to the border many times, i have visited these detention facilities i must admit the people in our border patrol immigration, customs some of the finest government workers you will find doing everything they can, and in a bad situation, to treat people, human mainly, so the president has a connumb brum trying to enforce the law, illegal immigration is illegal, and you have the decision from 20 years ago that says that you cannot dane children more than 20 days, so part of the answer is more judges administrative law judges to handle these claims, of asylum, certainly more frankly emergency appropriations to deal with facilities. the facilities have to be
8:08 am
enlarged we need more of them, but ultimately, we want people coming to america the legal way we want them to roll up sleeves work hard be economic assets look at americans a nation of immigrants we need legal immigrants people again to be economic assets not economic liabilities the administration has a challenge i don't know the details, but i know we have a lot of great men and women in the border patrol in ice, and i think they can handle the situation. >> makes perfect sense what are your colleagues on left say when you say that, i mean we want immigration but we want legal immigration. >> well, again i am sure they wish to exploit a situation more than solve a situation frankly many want a concept of open borders, i think that they want a bunch of people to come here get dependent upon government services, and give them their vote i mean that is kind of a cynic in me saying -- i have had conversations with a number to rightfully
8:09 am
conclude that is the least what is motivating some, otherwise they would have taken the president's very generous offer comrain the president was position very generous offer willing to give democrats things they didn't ask for, all he got was -- >> didn't vote for tax plan, today six mince since tax reform was enacted into law, your reflections half a we are out tell us what you would like to do didn't get done perhaps would you like to work on for next leg of this how do you see it. >> number one you can't find any it is hard to find bad news in the tax plan, you know a million new jobs, tied for the lowest unemployment 50 years income on the rise, more so he than any time last decade small business optimism off the chart there is no greeter economic stimulus than business optimism things i like to -- number one historic once in a generation tax reform i would like to work on
8:10 am
cap gains tax relief would i like, you know, one of the things we didn't quite nail down was simplicity one of our goals there is more to do, i would hope we get bipartisan byin i don't know if we can my hat is off to the president speaker chairman brady house side did a fantastic job, and a difference between the obama 1.7% economy, and the trump you know we are averaging 3% economy, consensus is for the second quarter 2018 probably at 4% economic growth. so if you look at the history of america, almost all of our job creation, almost all our income, risees profit reduction happens in 3% plus growth years, that is happening under this republican administration. this republican congress. >> you need that for deficits we are facing aren't. >> you for sure let's also remember if you believe that
8:11 am
tax cuts are to spay for themselves, so long as the economy is averaging over 2.8% it is paying for itself, increased revenue is part of the deficit solution. ultimately, we have to reform current entitlement programs for future generations, again, something that bank by un all we have received is -- >> a bank capital formation package senate agreed to take that up. >> they have agreed to take that up, and this is wonderful news because unfortunately, as recently as 2016, entrepreneurship was at a 40-year low, means still in america you got too many garages with old cars not enough with new start-ups. what we've also seen, is that ipos in 20 year slide that we have half the ipos that we had 20 years ago. we are not going to compete with china, unless we turn that around, we're not going to have long term 3% plus growth until we turn that
8:12 am
around. maria one of the good news items historically capital formation has been bipartisan issue the jobs act business start-up defined in law by president obama so i am telling democrats he is kind of giving you license to work on this this is about main street investors having more vote. opportunities, it is about competing with china, it is about longer term economic growth it is about going to be capital to small business start-ups something the whole family can join in on. maria: congressman you mentioned china let me ask you i know treasury is working on releasing those vote. restrictions, and details there, to china, along with the tariffs the president has put into place. what kind of restrictions are we talking about? i mean would you go as far as limiting the number of ipos that the chinese can take public on the new york stock exchange? >> well, i haven't studied
8:13 am
that issue we are doing reform what is known cfius, china thing intellectual property, high technology, part and parcel of their made in china 2025 plan. and so it is something that has to be confronted particularly for national defense we've got to be careful about this technology intellectual property, going to china again doing the it by hook and crook, violating all the rules of the wto that is where the real problem is, so i haven't looked at the ipo problem per se but let's face it, i mean so -- now some companies ultimately state owned companies actors we can't be any eave senate

8:25 am
sustainable, tax receipts not borne out by tax receipt data last word what is happening tax receipt growth slowed i think another issue that i am looking at is the s&p earnings numbers, differ vastly from the government measures profits in first quarter, s&p puts earnings growth 24 percent year-on-year government accounts far broader capture all u.s. companies rather than just 500 of the largest, was up .1%, only seen a gap that large between the -- three times so far 1987, 194 going into soft landing 95 and 2000 every instance the miss on numbers the ones to watch the s&p numbers came down to meet those. >>.

containous wait for capex to roll through 30 day payrolls, everything that has to happen for that for numbers to take effect not going to show up needle you see third and fourth quarter. >> we will see if it is the increase is really as substantial as the s&p numbers, my you know again when you go back in history we've had tax cuts before where you have not had this kind of gap, between the two measures, also, you know i don't look at markets as last word on what is happening the markets are fallible markets were hitting all-time highs obviously 2000 as economy going into recession so you know i wouldn't point to the small cap performance, as evidence that small businesses are doing much better, it is market expectations that they are going to see, the benefits. but the other side of this that really i think is big story the biggest risk to stock market is credit side we're seeing now departure of
8:28 am
stock market from what is happening in the credit markets, where the fed has been obviously raising rates tightening credit conditions draining reserves from banking system, and capacity to lend is therefore -- not surprisingly banks in response, creditors in general have lowered their credit standards because they are trying to find new sources of loans. >> i asked sheila about that yesterday. >> and credit cards. >> and leveraged loans issue anz so off the charts, that it is now surpassed junk market market cap 1.2 trillion junk one trillion this market is siel ently mushroomed, you are seeing a massive lowering credit standards 75% of issuance now like versus 17% back in 2007 in heyday. >> since 2014, so i have seen headlines, the levered loan market isn't new went to you

know, like covenants on a corporate this is on the corporate side right, if you look at the shock to the system, it should not reverberate to 2007 because that was more of a real economy this is more in you are talking about levined, through financial markets so it is hard to see the should there be distress in levered loans knock-on effect? >> i am using as capital of credit market in general, credit conditions if you works with the fed, taking back monetary accommodations you are seeing a degradation of loan standards and coming at a time when corporate sector has to roll a trillion dollars of debt here spreads are widening out that is going to catch people whether levered loan market or weak links i am

8:38 am
investigation any documentation going into that investigation, you heard devin nunes on sunday, he said hell to pay if documents aren't there said i am willing to go all the way meaning contempt what do you say about this obviously house gop members frustrated they legal hold deputy ag rod rosenstein in contempt if he does not hand over documents. >> they should be outraged at this, the system of checks and balances require the executive branch cooperate with legislative oversight there has never been more important time in history checks and balances to be operating whether regarding, president trump's immigration policies, checks and balances in play whether it be the investigation the mueller investigation even investigation that preceded that, checks and balances requires that congress have oversight over executive bathroom executive branch do its jon judiciary check both we are seeing that mapping in the immigration context we
8:39 am
should see it happening as well in the investigator process i ohio the rubber-stamp will get material they need they do have condemn power power rarely used against executive branch a power they do have. >> what would that mean? who that mean could push rosenstein to resign? >> no, they could hold him in contempt he would challenge that in court. i don't think they can make him resign, look he should be recused, there is no doubt about that to the extent investigation involves all the firing of comey that he was involved in the firing of comey he should not be in the investigation at all. but i don't think resignation is on the table, i do think contempt is a possibility sort of damocles congress can hold over executive branch rarely dropped but often invoked, i think the end result will be the pressure will produce documentation to some withheld
8:40 am
on grounds of privilege, but the vast majority should be turned over to congress congress -- in confidence as well don't have to release them all to the public. maria: hard to believe that the documents are not being turned over because of some national security issue, or some issue that, you know, that is -- is particular interest to doj should not be out there when you have text from peter strzok who with basically says you know he says to his girlfriend we will stop it. and this text happened on august 8 of 2016. four days later the other text says we need insurance policy we have had insurance policy text for months yet just getting this one now it was it was sent on august 8, 2016, so why were they not handing over this text, until the ig report had to hand it over? that is not national skurpt, that is just something that would embarrass peter he peter
8:41 am
strzok lead people to believe he was biased enough to dictate his behavior as the guy running the investigation. >> look, in my experience i have long experience in this vast majority claims national security are really designed to cover up embarrassment, or designed for political advantage national security is used as cover to prevent disclosure of information that might be embarrassing there is no question that that tweet or that message saying we will stop, stop, that is sounds like attempt to interfere with election, by members of the federal bureau of investigation a person particularly high role in the fbi even if he didn't mean it saying he would stop election i tried to stop election of president trump by voting for hillary clinton by contributing to hillary clinton that is a legitimate way trying to prevent election but when fbi agent says he is going to stop it that sounds
8:42 am
like includincollusion highest attempt to improperly interfere with legitimate collection i am not satisfied with computations not turningover that very important communication stopping election of president trump. >> peter strzok took over, running the investigation, into trump collusion in -- on july 31, 2016. 8 days later sends that text he is the guy running the investigation, and he sends a text we will stop it. now attorney generaling jeff sessions says strzok lost security clearance will that be only penalty he faces? he was obviously consorted out of the building what is your take on accountability here. >> i don't understand why strzok still has his job, when he has said we are going to stop the investigation, that is such an improper communication that we are going to get an insurance policy and didn't recuse himself it was his obligation
8:43 am
to recuse himself if he had those views, and he expressed them to somebody else also has to know as fbi agent no sump thing as private communications anything you send potentially can be made public. so he was potentially making public a statement by a leading fbi investigator that he was going to try to top the legitimate election from o going forward that is clearly a firable o finance i don't know why they are not firing him or fire him he will disclose information that will be even more embarrassing? i just don't understand yes still has a job in the fbi, it certainly doesn't make -- as american, to know that he is an fbi agent. >> incredible, senate judiciary chairman grassley wants to subpoena jim comey and former attorney general loretta lynch after bombshellig report released comey inclined to testify before gras lee's committee do you think a subpoena will come down do you think we are going to see guys testify next week,
8:44 am
standra smith did interview with goodlatte and gowdy last week they said expecting peter strzok to testify next week. >> he volunteered to testify how comey can resist subpoena impossible to know he is all over world selling his book disclosing all kinds of information he probably should not be disclosing without a subpoena how can he refuse to submit to the checks and balances the legitimate coincident inquikwi -- years cot inquiries. >> jim comey may be investigated by this for the same things he was unwilling to do for hillary clinton that is a mishandling of classified information. >> alan? >> yes? >> do you agree with that he is being investigated -- >> is he being investigated for the same issues that he was unwilling to investigate
8:45 am
hillary clinton for? misuse of classified information? >> well, there should be investigations that is what congress there is for. oversight. and there should be cooperation with investigations that is how our system checks and balances operates. >> thank you alan dershowitz.
