6:03 am
come in and blow away expectations. my question is that going to keep going here? the bar keeps getting higher and higher. and of course amazon thursday night along with intel and a bunch of other names. the bar keeps getting higher in the range of companies doing well keeps getting narrower and narrower. is that really healthy? we have the southern growth stocks that may be a little unevenness they are friday we had ge's report the cosmetic headlines with better, but they were great in terms of our business is going. >> we are watching these because this is where you'll see real-world impact slapped on steel and aluminum washing machines and the retaliation of
6:04 am
tariffs on china, imports in retaliation for the likes of china and canada. so why not now, whirlpool cut its profit outlook for the year and said it wouldn't be able to offset steel tariffs with higher consumer prices. tariffs taken a toll on harley davidson reported earnings a few weeks after announcing a plan to move some motorcycle production overseas to europe because of the retaliatory tariffs from europe. harley david and was lambasted by president trump. we slapped import tariffs at the beginning of the hearing world pool is still struggling because of the other tariffs from the steel and aluminum tears. >> they're causing a lot of problems in their second and third effects are not. revenues down 12.3% in the current quarter.
6:05 am
a lot of that has to do with raw material costs. some of it has to do with foreign exchange with the united dates economic data better than other parts of the world. a stronger dollar will squeeze companies like world pool, harley david and produced here in the united states. they loosen the translation. you also had demand lower from overseas because consumer demand is not keeping up here. how we get along in the various waves and winds of change in the global economy. >> 's aching from the white house on our experts ahead of the meeting with the european commission president jean-claude juncker tomorrow. listen to president trump yesterday. >> the european union is tough but they are coming to see me on when dad and we will see if we can work something out.
6:06 am
otherwise we'll do something with respect to the millions of cars they send in every year. maybe we can work something out. >> this comes the same day that jp morgan chase could derail economic momentum in an interview with cnn, here is what jamie dimon warned. if you do $200 billion in tears on the national security thing about cars i think you're getting pretty close to reversing the benefits you seen in the economy. this comes as the u.s. trade representatives will hold hearings about chinese tariffs. what you make of all of this? this is getting tougher and tougher. even organizations representing farmers across the nation because of the retaliatory tariffs from china giddings soybean growers and the like. >> it's getting so wide, numbers are getting so big. in the heartland president trump has a winning message. something he campaigned on vigorously.
6:07 am
most people say the president is trying to come up with something that is fair. i don't think this will necessarily play itself out before the midterm election in november. that'll be adjusting to see if you're in wisconsin or michigan in the tight seats controlled the house what's going to happen and what impact it's going to be there. interesting note the front-page story from "the wall street journal" about the housing market because this all ties together with the rising interest rate in the boom in the housing market is pretty interesting. >> home sales despite economic strength on existing home sales number in june. that is the story jason is talking about. jamie dimon also throwing a little shade yesterday at the trump administration in terms of the tactics bear. also told cnn, quote, i would remind folks the president's team has said there will be no retaliation. they party been wrong.
6:08 am
if i was the president might be a little ticked off as some of my advisors to tell you the truth. he is a democrat or as we say a big old democrat. the biggest bank in the country. donald trump truly believes in it. the president can be swayed in a different direction. the trade and tariffs as when he feels in his heart and that's why we see him push so hard on this. i would push back on jason. a lot of the republican message for the midterms is on the economy in the stock market and what people are feeling from the tax cut. if these tariffs start impacting individual voters indicate the impacts of the tax cuts, which were already starting to see whether his soybean farmers come as no workers throughout the midwest and the rust belt, i think politically this is contributing to a sense of anxiety that republicans are
6:09 am
running up all this debt. it's like a sugar high and now people are seeing tariffs. it doesn't make any sense to a lot of voters. dagen: i will push back a little bit ominous. the tariffs are not being passed through to the end consumer for the most part. we've talked about it on the program. a lot of impact in mc than the short-term tariffs and they are willing. they are calling their congressmen in the midwest and we had a congressman on yesterday and said they are going to sit vac. how long are they willing to wade when it doesn't appear donald trump has made any headway in getting new trade deals with anyone. >> there's negotiations with nafta has been ongoing. the leader of mexico actually came on and said they wanted to
6:10 am
something done in on this. >> outlined you think voters are willing to give the president on this? the how long is the grace period? >> i don't think the pastor was that the consumers are the venues to purchasing. there is a real america right in the heartland in the core of who trump is talking to. they also understand he does believe this. he's been talking about this for 30 years. >> i will say this, jason chaffetz. we have a reading on the second-quarter gross domestic artist on economic growth that could even coming close to 5%. that is the fastest quarterly rate that we've seen in years. we have approval rating of half of your voters approved. that is the highest mark on that
6:11 am
question in all this "wall street journal" surveys. his approval rating picked up a little bit to 45% and the economy is firing on all cylinders. we have some room to run and terms of these tariffs. >> they want to raise taxes and all they can do is talk russia, russia, russia. nobody cares. >> i would give the democratic message later. >> train to you have an economy. people feel good. the vast majority of americans are seeing higher paychecks this year. >> gdp on friday for q2. official consensus of quarter of a quarter. for pointy% to 5%. dagen: charlie gasparino good for pointy%. >> one thing i'll say is there's
6:12 am
evidence from sources like the facebook that retailers are passing through higher prices on certain goods. we seem retail stocks rally so much so with not affecting things much. the other thing i'll say is that and i'm not from the political world and the financial guy. the thing i keep noticing his face. president trump same things that will play to his core audience going in november. they're not saying they're analyzing debris of a trade deal or not. they are saying tomorrow ahead of the european commission coming to the white house. jean-claude juncker. those europeans are cheating us. don't make a deal on top of the tariffs. you don't win elections by making nice with the guy from luxembourg named jean-claude. [laughter] that is the political reality i see. like it or not, that is what trump is planning to. >> i think you're exactly right. dagen: as my eyes start watering because this was hilarious.
6:13 am
the house republicans are working to try to make the tax cuts permanent. the senate have dug their heels in. how important is this for house republicans going up to november? >> kevin brady will reveal that to the house today. a lot of people felt like we don't want this to be temporary. it is kind of core to the republican message. we want lower taxes, but they've got a pickup spending. that is where they are doing a terrible job. dagen: how crazy is that the democrats are trying to run on the debt? >> i've got a cut spending, too. >> democrats ought to be wearing t-shirts saying we are hypocrites, too. >> they don't care about the spending. let's see if they ever do. dagen: how much grounded we just cover. breaking overnight, hundreds missing. many suspect a dead.

6:28 am
offers a face that offers, which is not the technology, not the apps. it is the fact that all your friends and family are already there. there is no other network in the world that can promise that. they have a monopoly on the social graph, which is a term mark zuckerberg used her around a lot. should they be penalized for having such a good project that everyone comes to it because there's a natural monopoly. this is probably one of them. the antitrust concern is the one sort of wildcard here where that could be a dark shadow over their futures, their long-term futures. >> good to see you. thank you so much. new evidence this morning that north korea may be sticking to its word to dismantle nuclear testing site just one month after that historic summit. shaq gets trapped with a shark.

6:33 am
officials over concerns about bias against him. here is white house press sect raifer sarah huckabee sanders and what she had to say yesterday. >> the president is exploring the mechanisms to remove security clearance because they've politicized demand some cases monetized their public service and security clearances fact that people with security clearances are making the baseless charges provides inappropriate legitimacy to accusations with zero evidence. dagen: closer look straight ahead. new fukashima fallout, the nuclear disaster happened years ago and now some wine are testing positive for radioactive particles. a different kind of shack attack and this time a shark. rescued from a water after close encounter with a great white. yeah, we love shark week and unbelievable waterfall on the side of a building but it's so
6:34 am
expensive it almost never gets turned on. now to top stories this half hour, revoking security clearances, president trump considering ending security clearances for six former intelligence officials, this action have been to do with comments made by the officials about the investigation into russian meddling in 2016 election. sarah huckabee sanders addressing this issue yesterday. >> not only is the president looking to take away brennan security clearance but also into the clearances comey, clapper, hayden rice and mccabe and exploring to remove security clearance because they've politicized an in some cases monetized public service making baseless accusations of improper actions on russia.
6:35 am
dagen: joining me now general jack keane, what do you make of this action, is it necessary in. >> well, i don't -- i don't really understand what's happening here. if we are looking at security clearances and who should keep them after they finish government service as a matter of policy, i think that's probably okay, let's take a look at it and see. in the military, you're not going keep security clearance unless there's a reason for it. you left the military but still working for the government in some capacity or you're working in an industry where security clearances is required and every 5 years you will get it activated again. this appears to have -- target at individuals which means it seems personal to me and frankly i understand the frustration the administration feels. i mean, i've not seen in my time dealing with the government to have the kind of animus that's against this administration by
6:36 am
previous government officials and some of that is obviously gets very personal. all that said, i don't see the policy issue here. dagen: wall street journal had editorial on the matter, dumb idea of the week, they said it's petty, it's a dumb idea, they write that somebody should have said that's a dumb idea, will make us look petty and won't accomplish anything and jim comey said that he was read out when he left as fbi director and he no longer has security clearance and andy mccabe said the same thing. his security clearance is no longer -- deactivated. it's that issue. maybe they are using -- the other gentlemen could be using security clearances in their consulting work perhaps nevertheless, it's not going to shut them up to be quite blunt, they are going to keep the individuals -- by the way, i want you to listen to senator rand paul what he said about
6:37 am
former cia chief john brennan. >> had a great conversation with the president. i've been very concerned about john brennan continuing to have access to classified material. i think anyone who is calling basically the president treasonous which would require the death penalty is someone that is over the top and not showing the proper judgment and still have access to classified information. dagen: your reaction to that, general? >> i think this is a political issue here, brennan is opposed of the president and created a lot of animosity. that's where we are. i don't think -- i don't think for a minute that brennan is going in and getting classified briefing from the cia that help him criticize the cia, that's not happening. that's a stretch. in terms of monetizing this thing, you know, secretary -- national security adviser rice and others who had the position, if they're out there trying to earn a living, that's happening
6:38 am
as a result of the positions they held and reputation they earned in those positions, it's got nothing to do with security clearance. dagen: well said, general. satellite images show that the rogue regime is dismantling site, how significant is this move general or is it empty gesture? >> this is a step in the right direction. this is a test facility and this is something that they promised months ago as a result of earlier visit by secretary pompeo but they never came through wit and i think he really put it on the table as a result of his last discussions with them so they've fulfilling something that they promised they would do, that's not disarming and dismantling nuclear capability and that's what we are waiting for and i don't know if we are going to get there or not but the administration essential has a much better feel for it.
6:39 am
the key denominator is have they given the administration a location and identity of all of their nuclear and ballistic missile sites, if that's happened and we are able to go out there and take a look at them to verify that they are there and comply with what we already know from our intelligence services, then we are really making progress. that hasn't happened yet, we are not making the kind of progress that we should be making. dagen: again, we are dealing with issues on all fronts around the world, we have tensions with iran growing, the war of words continues between president trump and the islamic republic, commander in chief warning iran tweeting this, this was in all caps, this was yesterday, to iranian president, late sunday, to iranian president rouhani never ever threaten the united states or you will suffer consequences the likes of which throughout history suffered
6:40 am
before. we are no longer a country that will stand for demented words and violence and death, be cautious. iranian foreign minister responding, unimpressed. the world heard harsher bluster and iranians have heard for 40 years. we have been around for millenia be cautious, what does this say to you, if you were listening to mike pompeo at the speech he gave sunday night at the reagan lie bare or on sunday that it's really his words that are kind of great guidance out of this administration about the danger of the iranian empire. he talked about iran has run something that resembles the mafia more than a government. >> yeah, well, i don't do much analysis of the president's
6:41 am
tweets, i think they are out there to inform the american people, when you look at -- at the policies of this administration, i mean, to be frank about it, this is the first administration that's pushed back on iran from 1980, 38 years, whether it's been republican or democrat there, the fact is that iran has had a brilliant strategy by using proxies to do their bidding for them and by using proxies it paralyzed our decision make to go take adverse action against them and that's why they are in lebanon with 130 rockets, rockets and missiles pointed at israel, that's why they now have secured most of syria, not all of it but pretty close and that's strategic anchor in middle east. they have significant political influence over iraqi government and started the civil war in yemen because they are very much interested in controlling the strategic water way southwest to
6:42 am
canal. they have been moving for 38 years to dominate and control the middle east. this is the first president that's pushing back on that and i think he's also going to likely form something we have been talking here on fox, sort of an arab nato with the sunny arabs to push back on the iranians because last july among 55 leaders in the region he said i will stand shoulder to shoulder with you to push back on the strategic enemy and my strategic enemy of the region of iran. this will take iran to test. they will not permit aggressive and malign behavior that's been tramping over our allies' interests and the united states. dagen: pompeo called individuals in iran by name for corruption and he also -- he highlighted
6:43 am
the fact that iran is directing funds to terrorist dictators and proxy ma -- malacias and got pallets of cash for in ranson. >> mike pompeo is a star in that group, he's amazing and that speech, really deserves to be read twice because he's appealing to the iranian people and there's real softness there because they are so frustrated economically. dagen: general well said, always terrific to see you, always a pleasure. general jack keane. new worry for wine lovers,

every time jobs return to our shores, every time we a a product made by our own american neighbors, we are renewing the bonds of love and loyalty that link us together as americans. today we declare a simple truth. it matters where something is made. matters to me. dagen: here now, three individuals who attended yesterday's event, new york congresswoman claudia tenney, a member of the financial services committee along with the co-founders of cheryl manufacturing and liberty table top, matthew roberts and greg owens. matthew and greg, i want to start with you. greg, until recently it's been much more cost effective as a business to produce overseas. what did you make of the event yesterday? >> well, it was a great honor to be invited to the event yesterday. it's actually our second year. last year we participated in the roundtable. it not only is representative of what the administration and others are trying to do to help us out on the manufacturing front, but it's also a motivational factor for matt and
7:05 am
ali and our employees to attend the event. dagen: i said on fox news yesterday morning, it's a way for the white house and the president to highlight how fast the u.s. economy is growing and to remind people go out and buy american if you can. >> right. we're the only manufacturing of flatware left in the united states. so we've reached out to our congresswoman, congress people, we've reached out to the white house and asked them to help us and i think basically the way the economy is going, our factory is growing significantly. we're about 33% bigger than we were last year. we've hired another 15 people. and the future is bright for cheryl manufacturing. dagen: can you ask you, matt, really quickly, where you source your raw materials and if you have been hit at all by the tariffs that have come out of the white house so far. >> right. we have a -- our marketing niche
7:06 am
is 100% made in the united states. all of our steel has to be melted and processed in the united states. we have seen some increase in pricing. i'm not really sure if it is due the tariffs, but maybe more due to the fact that the economy is heating up. we've seen a slight increase but nothing really substantial. but like i said before, everything has to be u.s. content in our product. dagen: congresswoman tenney, this event comes amid the heated trade battle that american manufacturers are wrestling with the fallout from trump's tariffs, not just the steel and aluminum tariffs but also our tariffs of $34 billion of chinese imports and the retaliation from china which is beginning to hurt exporters, particularly farmers. what do you make of that? how dawning rise -- dangerous is this dispute for businesses. >> let's first talk about cheryl manufacturing. this is the great american manufacturing story.
7:07 am
i toured their plant in 2016 and said wow, this is a couple guys who worked a deal to unite a facility that now moved to china, an iconic brand, started in my region. these guys bought the old factory, refurbished the equipment and reopened what was eliminated and made it an american based product. what they're doing is accenting how great the american workforce is and how important they are and they're one of our greatest assets. they're proving that you can use american workers and american workers are the best, and you can sell the products and you heard them talk about how well they're doing. so this is why trump won our region and why the message resonated. we had so many iconic businesses. the president and ceo of revere manufacturing was there. we think it was started in 1801. new york state has seen this massive exodus of jobs to china and to asia and to see these guys try to bring it back, i think it's important.
7:08 am
i think the jury is still out. wilbur ross was at the event and talked to us about the products there. so we'll he see what happens. i think they indicated they're not sure if it's all tariff or if it's boone in the economy. the tax cuts are helping the business, whether large, medium or small and even a business like cheryl. >> this is jason. i had a pleasure of serving with her in the congress. my question for you is what do you see the republicans doing in terms of taxes. we have an announcement with question brady coming up -- announcement with kevin brady coming up. >> we're rolling out -- i heard we'll see 2.0. i haven't seen the details. chairman brady will bring that out. let me talk about something important that we need to do. you're talking about spending and stagnation in wages.
7:09 am
i think a lot is attributable to the fact that we haven't been able to repeal and replace obamacare. that is a burden on small businesses. it affects wages of small business owners and small business owners, their workers are paying enormous rates because obama care is so expensive and the premiums are going up and deductibles are going up. we had a spending control mechanism in the american health care act that did not pass the senate last year. as you know, we got it through the house and we got to the senate and we had a thumbs down. that made the difference. that's where we have to start working on realigning the spending, bringing spending down, continuing to protect medicare, protect social security, but rei realigning soe truly needy people are getting the services. many people on medicare lost because we robbed medicare -- we robbed medicaid to give money to med care and the expansion of obamacare. you have two entrepreneurs
7:10 am
running a small business, the only flatware manufacturer in our region, it's affecting wages and everything in our region. dagen: greg, what do you want to see out of washington? i'm the child of small business owners. i never knew what a vacation was. they never took a vacation. they worked seven days a week. and i heard my entire childhood and my entire life about politicians talking about small businesses and how critical they are and quite frankly washington never did jack for my parents' business. greg, you've got claudia tenney, your congressman there, and you've got jason who knows folks in washington. tell them and the audience what you want out of d.c. >> well, i guess if you want to put the answer on a bumper sticker it would be get out of the way and let us go. i think claudia and a lot of our representatives in washington and the administration, that's their tact. that's a little about what tax reform is all about.
7:11 am
instead of taking money away from business and readies contributing it to achieve goals, let businesses do that. we hired 15 people. one of our main objectives going forward to is to as we make more money, give that money to our employees. we gave out pretty substantial raises this year. we would like to do more to make sure it's a great place to work for, at, and to keep our employees happy for many years to come. dagen: matt,ism going to give you the -- i'm going to give you the final word, sir. you get the final word. say what you want to. >> i want to say thank you to the administration for as greg said getting out of the way and letting us run our business. nobody knows how to make flatware better than the team we have at cheryl, new york. and we're here not only for a company to make money and to be profitable. we're here for our community. i think many of the businesses that you saw yesterday in the white house had the exact same
7:12 am
goals. they want to be the part of the community and work as a team and be americans together and grow the economy. dagen: gentlemen, great to see you both. thank you so much. greg owens, matt roberts and congresswoman claudia tenney. here are some of the businesses i know all made in america, l.c. king manufacturing, they make awesome men's jackets and clothing, red land cotton, they were at the white house yesterday, incredible sheets and the family grows their own cotton. and then shot, made in america, great leather jackets, made in new jersey. a shoutout to all those business as well. great to see you all. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thank you. dagen: president trump just tweeting this morning on trade. countries that have treated unfairly on trade for years are all coming to washington to negotiate. this should have taken place many years ago. but as the saying goes, better late than never. i wonder if this will soothe any
7:13 am
concerns, certainly in the markets, if we've seen any concerns from investors about the tariffs. again, that's been the message, the president's like be patient, we're using tariffs in the short run but we want better trade deals. certainly one of the biggest threats is the auto tariff, 20, 25% tariff on auto imports. we want to get some resolution of that. >> the market is eithe waiving - market is either waiving that offer or microsoft is maybe seen as bulletproof stocks that are getting through this. the easy representatives are going to be at the white house tomorrow and we're going to see -- i think there's a method to the madness. we'll see if any good news is taken. dagen: parents, listen up. check your cabinets. salmonella fears prompting a massive recall of goldfish crackers many we'll tell you which variety are affected. plus, where one bargain loving

swing with three dow come poe thens reporting, 3m, united technologies and verizon. joining us right now equity strategist, scott renn. your toon earnings season -- your take on earnings season so far. i know we have some of the earnings out already. >> i think there's one or two sectors that haven't had a company report. overall, they have been good. they're corm comin coming in ben expected. i think the attention is going to continue to be on those sectors that benefit from a continuation of the expansion. i think that's where the attention's going to be. i think that's where the best growth rates are going to be. so those are the sectors that we're focused on. >> scott, mike block. so looking at large caps in the u.s., what sectors are those? >> well, for us, mike, we like industrials. obviously the fears over the trade war have affected it but certainly the earnings have been good. so we like industrials, consumer discretionary.
7:24 am
we like financials which obviously the flatness of the curve hasn't helped. we also like health care. but saying that, really if you look from the recent low which was on june 27th and you look june the 27th through yesterday, basically, these cyclical sectors are leading the charge and the ones that were underweight, write the defensives, largely, staples, utilities were also underweight, energy, those are underperformers. i think that's the way you want to be leaning as we look forward over the next six to nine months. dagen: are you going through each of these earnings reports, trying to figure out what the impact of the tariffs that we've seen so far that have been slapped on steel and aluminum and some chinese imports an some exporters to china. >> we're talking with our individual company analysts all the time and certainly that's one of the things, and clearly industrials are going to be the one that's mostly affected. but for us, what we've done is we've decided we're going to take a stand here.
7:25 am
this has been the case for months now, that we consider an all-out trade war a low probability, maybe a 20% probability, something like that. it's certainly not zero. but i think that if you can win the game four out of five times you play, you want to play the game. for us, we're more h focused on what's the fed going to do, what's global growth going to do, are we going to see a wage surge that cuts into corporate profit margins. those are the things that i think are going to drive the stock market over the next 2 months. trade war, we're going to hear noise. it's probably going to present opportunities to buy stocks. i just don't think we'll have an all-out trade war. >> this is jason. what don't you like? i heard a lot of optimism in a lot of different sectors. what do you not like and why is the housing sector lagging behind, according to the front page story in the wall street journal. >> as i mentioned, really we
7:26 am
don't want our clients hiding. we don't want them being defensive. utilities, staples, those don't look very good to us. energy, overall we're underweight, we're unabl unfavoe on commodities. we thought oil was top diss py at 75. as far as the housing market goes, you're younger than i am, but it makes me laugh when i hear a lot of people say gee, these rates, these 30 year mortgage rates have popped up. the first time i bought a house in 1986 i felt good about the 12 3/4, 30 year rate that i had. i think the housing market -- the labor market is good, people's incomes are rising slowly. i think we've seen a little bit of stumble here just recently in the housing market. i don't think it's going to fall apart by any means. we still just have an inventory problem out there. now these prices have run up and
7:27 am
so it's a lack of inventory and a little bit higher prices, less affordability. but no way, shape or form do we think the housing market's going to fall apart here. dagen: somebody tweeted as president trump was talking about the federal reserve last week in an interview and he mentioned it on twitter as well, someone tweeted me and said why can't the fed just get out of the way and let the market run the way it did in the '80s. i said the market was able to run the way it did in part because of the pro growth policies out of the reagan administration. it was two back to back recessions and a fed that was jacking interest rates, we had like double digit interest rates as you pointed out, scott, so again, if the federal reserve is hiking interest rates, two more expected maybe the rest of the year, that that's a sign that the economy is doing well and you want to prevent it from overheating. >> that's right. it's not armegedon time anymore.
7:28 am
we need to get these rates up to what would be a normal type of rate or at least a more normal type of rate and certainly in the early '80s we had the double recession. paul volker was trying to step in front of the inflation freight train. we're not there now. i think jay powell is aware that he needs to be careful here and while the fed may desire that rates are higher or more normal, getting from here to there is a little more difficult. so i think these rates, our call is that we see one more rate hike this year, maybe two or three next year. if you look back at most cycles, at some point the fed raises rates too much, they leave them too high for too long and you roll over into a recession. i think the chance of a recession over the next let's call it 12 months is pretty low. but the fed does need to be careful here. dagen: just real quick, the
7:29 am
more pressure out of the white house that's put on the federal reserve, do you run the risk of the fed overcre reoverreacting t its independence. >> i don't think the white house should put pressure on the fed. they need to remain independent. i don't think the fed is going to react to that at all. they are not going to crack, so-to-speak, under this pressure and really to be honest with you, i really doubt the president is going to pressure them very much. dagen: you heard that from secretary mnuchin. he said the president does believe in the independent fed. i wanted to raise that with you. thank you, scott. >> thank you. dagen: coming you, tragedy in greece, wildfires near athens leaving dozens dead including children on vacation. we have the latest as firefighters continue to battle that fire near the greek capital. plus, taking on tax cuts, house republicans set to learn more about tax reform 2.0 today. a vote on a second package is far from assured. plus, jobs act, 3.0, we're going to talk to the chairman of the

of economic stimulus is business confidence and unfortunately, that confidence is waning now. dagen: checkbooks are closing, jason. >> well, i left congress. so talk to jim about that one. dagen: jason, you can ask the congressman. >> i'm just joking. this is jason, jeb. he's one of my favorite people in congress. he does an amazing thing and a great conservative here. i want to understand where you're going next with what's happening with the budget. because congress is going to have to come up with either continuing resolution or an omnibus in order to fund the government. we don't exactly need this hiccup in the economy right now. what do you see playing out by the time we get to october? >> well, i suspect, jason, i left my crystal ball back in dallas before i came to washington. i'm not 100% certain. the speaker has a strategy to work on what are called mini
7:38 am
busses, a group of smaller appropriations bill that can hopefully pass. at the end of the day is the united states senate. it takes a super majority, 60 votes to simply fund the government. you get into either spending more and more money, or you get into a shutdown scenario. we need -- we must reform our budget laws. they go back to 1974. i've tried to do it. paul ryan's tried to do it. lots of people have tried to do it. we haven't been successful yet. we have a terrible system of budgeting here. last i looked, the national debt clock is still spinning out of control and there will be a day of reconning. it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when, if we don't change the spending and debt trajectory that we're on. right now, i would expect possibly another series of mini busses. otherwise, we're going to be looking at either an omnibus or
7:39 am
continuing resolution at the end of september. i see no way in front of an election how the government is going to get temporarily shut down. so i don't see that happening. but at the end of the day, we're still kind of whistling by the graveyard on this national debt. it's the most foreseeable crisis in america's history and the answer simply is you've got to reform current entitlement programs for future generations. that's the answer. unfortunately, i'm dealing with one in my committee's jurisdiction, the national flood insurance program which we're about to reauthorize for the sixth time this year, with absolutely no reforms. it's taken $40 billion from the taxpayer, a $1.5 billion debt, puts people in harm's way. you that's just a micro come. dagen: you make too much sense, congressman. i'm serious. that's one of the issues when
7:40 am
president trump in that tweet that i read, he said remember, we are the piggy bank that's being robbed. he's talking about trade deficits. and basically we have a trade deficit because we're extremely wealthy nation and we like to consume things. if you want to talk about debts, let's talk about that, because we have now -- we have $1 trillion annual budget deficit starting in twawn, stare indebted to china in that way. they're one of the largest holders of our debt as a foreign nation. >> that's the far more important debt. with respect to the trade deficit, simple accounting means we make it up in the investment account and as you point out, historically speaking the times that we've had our periods of greatest economic prosperity are the times we run the greatest
7:41 am
trade deficits. the answer is to allow americans to be able to export more, not import less. so i would call upon the administration and the president to clarify what is the end game here, what is the end goal. i could get rid of the trade deficit tomorrow, outlaw trade and watch gdp plummet, watch dispose aable family income plum plummet. we want to bring down trade barriers so we can prosper. trade is a win-win situation, no trade is a lose-lose situation. dagen: marie heart has a question for you real quick. >> i want to ask about the jobs act 3.0, which is designed to spur investment in startups which we've seen taking nateing in many places around -- taking stagnating in many places around the country. this startup money is not all for tefnlgt it' tech.
7:42 am
for many things. how will this focus on places that feel like they've been forgot glen it'foreen. >> it's not necessarily geographically targeted. i'm concerned about the middle part of the country. what i'm especially concerned about is that startups up until recently have been at a generational low. i.p.o.s have been on a 20-year slide, a 20-year low. we've seen an uptick now. ultimately, we've got to have feeder stock. we've got to be able to fund the amazons of the future, but also the small businesses, the dry cleaner or the barbecue restaurant on the street corner in main street, america. what we do is we try to address capital formation throughout the ecosystem. so we have provisions, there's 32 different bills wrapped into one. we have bills that will allow angel investors to better fund our startups. we help broaden the definition
7:43 am
of an acreditted investor. we allow companies to broaden their ability to do confidential filings. we also try to bring off the regulatory -- holdoff on the regulatory burden, particularly on sarbanes-oxley 404-b. we do something called a 10 year on-ramp to that as opposed to a five-year. that's particularly helpful to a lot of our biotech companies. and then we also have a problem, marie, is that once companies become public, they have a challenge of staying public because their stocks are so thinly traded. so we are legislation in there that creates a venture exchange to concentrate liquid at this in one place, to try to bring in a reporting of these various stocks. so this is an important exercise. every congress ought to do something to bring down the burdens to capital formation. because i've got two teenagers, back home, my children, and the company that's are going to

drive the economy and their peak earning years haven't been borne yet. we hope this legislation will help create them and help drive the economy of tomorrow. dagen: congressman, jeb hensarling, always a pleasure, sir. we covered a lot of ground. have a terrific day. come back soon. >> thank you. dagen: demolition gone wrong, police investigating after a miami condo building collapse unexpectedly, leaving one person injured. we have the latest. pairs well the high tea, one famous bakery bringing hemp macarons to u.s. shores. we'll tell you where. ♪ so, i needed legal advice,
