6:22 am
trump and george w. bush and former north korean human rights deputy special envoy. good to see you. thanks for joining us. what you expect? lawmakers are hoping that testimony will clarify the administration's policies on russia. many hoping to uncover what was said between the president and putin in private. do you expect them to learn any of that? >> we look a little more detail in the three topics would be north korea, russia and iran. give a speech at the reagan library this week. you're also going to get a lot of partisan sparks. the foreign relations committee and a fair amount of deference that the judiciary committee party scene. you have the democratic ranking member of menendez but the chairman bob corker. you'll see a lot of attention on russia and a lot of got you effort towards a secretary.

preparing to travel to south korea to assist with the repatriation of u.s. service members in the korean war. a lot of uncertainty a lot of uncertainty. especially the transfer without final approval. do you think north korea will follow through on this? >> eventually they will. they have proceeded with talks more or less on the timeline agreed in pompeo's last visit to pyongyang. he did miss one meeting gave her range of possible date and follow through on the last date and that sort of a confidence building measure in remains of the americans have been there since 1950, 1953 who died in the war. the law to update the pompeo could provide information on. that was the one specific thing trump and kim talked about in singapore. the factors progress on that is very good. likely to go to the region next
6:24 am
week. i doubt they'll talk about that, but we should get a little more detail. >> edition, one of the biggest impediment speculated about the north korean negotiations is the interference by china and right now it seems we are only having escalations in our discussions with china, with the terrace. where do you think the implications are with north koreans would make him pay with his negotiations given that it seems to be really energetic and in those affairs. >> the fundamental part which differs with that in the george w. bush administration and the clinton administration is frankly not to put china in the center of these discussions. they're almost always in beijing different parts of north korea. trying to create an economic future for north korea that is not dependent upon china has been a big part of it and
6:25 am
frankly part of engaging russia. we don't know how specifically that came up between trump and putin but they did discuss north korea. russia has a great fear of china. a very unpopulated nation. russia can use labor but doesn't want chinese labor. that might be an area of cooperation. china does things unhelpful and while they're not wholesale violating sanctions against north korea, we do think i've gotten loosey-goosey with enforcement. >> bob nardelli here. you served in several administration so you would have been inside. president trump is talking about taking away security clearance from brennan and others. what is your point of view? is that a good thing or what's the implications? >> i thought it was weird people would want to keep clearances. if you plunge into academia or consulting, not to be accused of leaking classified information. it sort of a vestige of time when positions are held by
6:26 am
people who had a bipartisan inclination. the idea being you might want to bring people back who done the job before. president or secretary may want to call in a predecessor and have automatic access and give them access to highly classified information. i do have things that the former cia for a national intelligence who gone and become extremely partisan talking heads. another thing politicized and what trump has done is catching up with the times. maria: for the most part, brenneman clapper trashing the president daily on cnn. >> this isn't going to a think tank to a think tank thing i respectfully disagree and this is what we try to do. this is gone out the door to go to the most partisan of partisan tv networks to become a paid talking head. if you do those types of things can you shouldn't expect to have a clearance. clearances for people in the executive branch who made that further job.
6:27 am
dagen: christian, taking away their security clearances are going to shut them out. turning to have been leaking information in arabic son cnn. >> if they were doing that, they should prosecute them because that's against the law. one thing i will add if john brennan, bob goodlatte told you on sunday he wants to call john brennan in front of congress come in front of his committee. if john brennan has to look at classified documents as part of the testimony, he will need to have security clearance in place. they could give him temporary clearance. this is from a 32 year military veteran. security clearances are essentially part of a golden parachute that are given to the intelligence officials when they go out looking for a very lucrative consulting jobs. every american a shock that these things are dylan plays.
6:28 am
maria: especially as you have these people on cnn trashing what is going on at the white house and president trump's policies daily over and over again. we will see that list. about 50 names on the list of people that could not want to question in testimony and john brennan as i'm not last. christian, thanks for weighing in here. important information. we appreciate you joining us. coming up, farm aid 2018 to ease pain of the trade dispute. american farmers the $12 billion of aid from washington. a one-on-one interview coming up with sonny perdue is next. end of an era for a bongo drum. the first daughter shutting down her fashion company and shifting focus to more work in washington. more details there. coming up in a moment. ♪

6:32 am
tariffs on cars imported from the eu. >> how did it get so unbalanced, they said nobody ever called, they said nobody ever called, they do whatever they wanted and we just put up with it. not any longer, folks, making tremendous progress, they are all coming, they don't want tariffs, they are all coming to see us. maria: the president trump announcing both u.s. and eu dropped tariffs. futures this morning are flat, dow industrials are up, fractional moves. dow breaking at 3-day losing streak, 3 quarters of 1%. nasdaq inch lower and s&p up 13

6:34 am
>> all going viral, we have details. summer time, time to hit amusement park, right? we will check in with six flags to see how they are handling this season, first, though, half story -- first half an hour, aid package for farmers who have been hurt by tariffs while president says it will help farmers, gop senators are skeptical of this aid. >> the farmers will be the biggest fiduciary, watch, we are opening up markets, you watch what's going down. just be a little patient. >> it's a lot of money, we are talking b, compared to what farmers lose over time it's not. farmers don't want aid, they want -- >> when you start playing
6:35 am
insurance policy that they'll be no pain in tariffs not sure it's going to work because once you start where do you stop? maria: joining us sunny perdue. >> good morning, maria. how are you? maria: i'm doing well, you heard lindsey graham, pushback on aid not coming from lawmakers but soybean farmer ron hegseth on the program earlier the month. >> the tariffs are ill con seeferred an totally inappropriate using food as a weapon raising the price of food to the chinese people and devastating the united states farmers is a lose-lose situation for everyone. farmers want trade, they don't want aid. maria: there you go. trade not aid, your reaction. >> absolutely, farmers want trade, there's not a farm ner this country that would rather not have a good crop and fair price, the problem is they haven't been getting fair prices because of restrictions of other
6:36 am
countries placed on productivity and the president trump is the first one to call them on that. china has been cheating for years and no one has called, it's like watching a game where the umpire is clearly prejudice and nobody stops him. maria: yeah, i was reading your comments earlier, you're calling illegal retaliation, didn't the u.s. start the fight? >> the u.s. started this by calling that, the negotiations had taken place, the response should be for china to stop their own fair trade practices like inintellectual property theft, that's even happening in agriculture, stealing corn seeds in iowa, those kinds of things as well as force transfer, that's the appropriate response not creating a file and then filing somebody at the file line, that's what's happening with china. maria: i totally understand what you're saying about china because they have been steeling us for years but that's not the only country getting impacted. tariffs on eu, tariffs on
6:37 am
méxico, and on canada, so it's not just china. >> well, let's deal with eu, frankly more nontariff barriers for american producers, all american farmers want is a level playing field, our productive farmers and ranchers in this country could outproduce anyone in the country in the world and they would if they had a level playing field. that's what president trump is trying to get and it's not there, the eu is one of the offenders, even our neighbors canada and méxico have not played fair, canada as you know charges tariffs of 1250 to 300% on products and they are access to open markets. maria: when does it stop, the 12 billion-dollar aid, are you going to have to do aid, is the government going to doll out more aid for technology, for auto, for every sector out there basically? >> this is the temporary measure for agricultural producers.
6:38 am
it's authorized in the usda and part of their rules and we are using that to temper this. this is a temporary measure, hopefully to show china and other countries they cannot bully the u.s. into caving in on unfair trade practices that's exactly what president trump's strategy is and i think it will work and certainly we'd rather have trade than aid and restore the markets but not at unfair practices. maria: what's plan b if they don't stop, continue retaliating? >> that's their decision, i think the pain will get worse on them going forward as the president said, you see the eu is in town today looking to negotiate and talk about these things, we think we are very close to an agreement with méxico and often times the president doesn't like to do this but when people don't play fair you have to throw the following. maria: tell us the details on aid package, $12 billion, how
6:39 am
soon will farmers feel it? >> the details will come out in probably mid to late august and program begins after labor day, september the fourth when farmers are able to sign up there. they'll be a portion of payments directly for crops like soybeans and corn and wheat and even some dairy and some pork payments there and then for the rest of money we will buy those commodities and redistribute to food banks and school -- school nutrition programs there. thirdly, there's a program about creating different markets, the markets where we can go in and have a level playing field. maria: are you surprised that these countries are targeting many states that voted for donald trump? >> no, these are smart political people, they know exactly what they're doing, they are trying to bully the president politically and you hear some of the comments from congress, that's what's happening, is that they politically they are
6:40 am
playing a game and we expect that to continue. maria: but are you playing a game also, the timing of this right before midterm elections s there any reason to believe that this idea that everybody is going to drop all tariffs is based on any reality is the president really expecting that? that's what he tweeted last night. >> i think that's exactly right. i think this is not a political game, this is president trump doing exactly what he told farmers he would do. he knew that there would be discomfort and disruption and retaliated against because we have a surplus in agriculture, our farmers are some of the most product nif the world and we export more than we import and therefore the farmers and agriculture products always the tip of the sphere when retaliation comes. maria: real quick before you go, secretary, when would you expect us to have a real realistic picture of this is going to my out. how long are we going to play
6:41 am
this? >> we hope to have a deal with méxico very soon, restore that part of canada, hopeful that canada will see the president is serious about this and they need to more fairly and get a deal with canada and then move onto have china as well. we think there's discussions going on with china and a lot of things you see in public is different than what you see in private. maria: what do you think the president wants to get out of junker today at the white house from the eu? >> i think he wants to remove the nontrade tariffs in in agricultural products as well as other products, the eu has a huge economy and they only import a smidging from the united states, we are capable of producing product that customers want an president trump simply wants to level the playing field. auto is a good example. that's their juggler. maria: we do charge 25% on light trucks, right? >> that's correct. maria: thanks very much.
6:42 am
>> thank you, maria. >> sonny perdue, i will be speaking with a group of dairy farmers and cheese producers to get perspective on tariffs and farm aid plan and impact on businesses. first though coming up swiped apple, $25,000 of iphone and hardware stolen from california store right in front of everybody. we are watching it happen right now in this braising heist video, incredible. drake fans, ntsb has a warning about the in my feelings challenge, you to hear this, back in a minute.

fiat chrysler lowering its guidance for revenue. the stock is down better than 4%. rising trade tensions, president trump holding a high stakes meeting with the presidents of the european commission today at the white house amid the standoff over auto tariffs. the administration rolls out a package to help the nation's farmers. sonny perdue defended the plan last hour, right here. >> there's not a farmer in this country that would rather not have a good crop and a fair price. the problem is they haven't been getting fair prices because of the restrictions of other countries, placed on their productivity and president trump is the first one to call them on that. maria: we hear from a group of dairy farmers this morning, along with cheese producers, coming up straight ahead. markets this morning are flat. futures indicate a mixed opening, dow industrials down 13, the nasdaq up 2 points, after the dow and s&p 500 posted gains yesterday. the nasdaq was flat yesterday. the dow picked up 200 points at the close, three-quarters of 1%
7:02 am

7:03 am
the economy is really cooking. dagen: to be balanced because i've been very negative on these tariffs and these unnecessary trade tiffs that the administration has picked, however, many manufacturers have come out and said just yesterday, united technologies and 3m are taking the tariffs in stride, they're still growing through them, they're not exceptionally concerned about them at this point. united technologies was up almost 4% yesterday, 3m gaining almost 1%. it is not playing out in the markets and even in the businesses of the big manufacturers. maria: they think he's in negotiation mode and they're waiting to see how it plays out. gm is lowering guidance and fiat chrysler is lowering guidance also. look at gm right here, kevin, down 3 3/4%. have you news on fiat. >> fiat chrysler actually cut their full year outlook, they you cut their earnings, they've revenue outlook. shares are falling about -- well, now over 5%. but their call's going to start
7:04 am
at 8:00. we'll get a read-through on what they're saying about the transition, about tariffs and slowing demand for car sales. we were really at peak sales, this goes back to the industrials that we're talking about. utx came out yesterday. last quarter we had caterpillar talk about th high watermark for earnings. 100 companies so far this year have talked about spins. the anticipation is a lot of the industrials will spin off units to add more shareholder value. maria: how do you see it, bob? gm is cutting the full year earnings forecast and revenue forecast. gm is down 3 3/4%. fiat is cutting expectation as well. >> i think what you see, kevin mentioned it earlier, in addition to 17 million, we're starting to see that soften. why? because incentives are being pulled back. so they're making more profitable revenue than just driving unit sales to be ranked number one. interest rates are going up. you won't be able to do the 70
7:05 am
months, 0% financing. so we're starting to see some multiple impacts on the auto industry and dagen, to your point, i'm not sure, some will use tariff as an excuse, others will plow through it. maria: we'll see what the guidance says. that will be key through all the earnings. joining us this morning is dr.ly am fox, as well as darryl isa, along with judge andrew napolitano. a real estate co-founder and ceo, dali lens will give us a check on real estate this morning and dr. mik is with us as well. we've got a big two hours coming up. our top story this hour right now, aid for american farmers, the trump administration announcing $12 billion in emergency farm aid, trying to ease the financial burden caused by retaliatory tariffs. i just spoke with agriculture secretary sonny perdue about this action. >> this is a temporary measure for agricultural producers. it's authorized in the usda and
quote
7:06 am
part of their rules and we're using that to temper this. this is a temporary measure, hopefully to show china and other countries they cannot bully the u.s. into caving in on unfair trade practices. that's exactly what president trump's strategy is. and i think it will work. and certainly we would rather have trade rather than aid and restore these markets but not an unfair practices. maria: joining us to talk more about that are three dairy farmers from america's heartland, mark check, a minnesota dairy farmer, jim ostrum, ceo of milk source with farms throughout the u.s. and jeff swagger, president of satori cheese. thank you for joining us this morning and weighing in. jeff, tell us how the tariffs are affecting your cheese exports. >> roughly 10% of our business is export business. we had to reduce basically our
7:07 am
selling price to cover the tariffs in mexico with our import partners and customers there so the consumers aren't seeing an impact on it. what was profit aable business e is now unprofitable or breakeven at best. maria: what would you like to see happen, jeff? what was your life like before the tariffs went into place, knowing you were probably on the losing end of a deal. >> before the tariffs went in place, we were focused on growing the business and growing profitable business around the world. now we're focused on maintaining business. it's not good for the long term. maria: jim, when will dairy producers feel the effect of these tariffs or have you already in your dairy business, jim? >> good morning. yes, the dairy industry's feeling the effects, i would say substantially. i think what separates our situation from really the rest of the country is that we have just recently started to come
7:08 am
out of a pretty substantial recession as an industry. and just as we're seeing some upward tick to futures prices, the trade war broke out. i estimate that the industry's going to lose about -- and is losing about $10 million a day, $3.6 billion a year, just in dairy. so that's not soybean. that's not corn. that's not pork. that's just dairy. and i can also tell you that i know personally large farms and small farms that are under immense stress and they don't have a lot of alternatives to survive this. so we welcome help from the government, from the department of agriculture and secretary perdue. i think it's going to be needed. maria: so this -- you're saying this $12 billion is really needed right now. i mean, the question of course becomes when does it end. is the government going to start doling out money to every
7:09 am
industry affected by the tariffs? >> i think that's a very fair point. i don't know anybody in agriculture that wants any government subsidy. we want a free market. i urge the white house to negotiate aggressively, find trade partners starting with mexico, our largest trade partner. we've already lost markets to mexico. our markets to china and canada are under stress. any success that the white house can get will help the industry to move forward and all of agriculture in general. maria: let me move on to you, mark. tell us about your dairy farm. how is it doing right now? will this help over the long term? or are you also looking at a money losing situation? >> this is a short-term fix. we need to be on fair trade. i honestly, our dairy farm is struggling right now, probably worse than it ever has.
7:10 am
i do agree with president trump. we need to fix this long term, so that we can have sustainable agriculture. maria: are you seeing higher expenses and are you passing them on to the consumer as a result of the he retaliation? >> we really can't pass it on. we have a perishable product. we milk ou cows. our milk leaves the farm. we basically get what the market is. it's very hard. it's one thing with farming, it's always been. what other business really puts a product out there without knowing the returns. maria: what do you want to see from the administration at this point? jeff, kick us off on this one as well. what would you like to see the president do at this point? >> i think we would like to see free trade as people have mentioned here. we need to get trade agreements in place. europe's ahead of us. they've gotten free trade agreements recently done with canada and mexico and we're
7:11 am
sitting on the sidelines. we need those agreements in place. maria: right. but the president said look, let's drop all tariffs. that went unanswered, jeff. your thoughts on the same question? what do you want to see out of government now? is this going to be effective, $12 billion in aid for you? >> it's not going to affect the manufacturers at all. farmers need the help. it needs to go there. but $12 billion is not going to -- as jim mentioned, $3.6 billion in a year is just dairy. it's not going to cover the other markets. maria: yeah. so mark, let me show you what the president is saying now because he's actually right now tweeting about trade and about the farmers. he says every time i see a weak politician asking to stop trade talks or the use of tariff to counter unfair tariffs, i wonder what can they be thinking, just
7:12 am
going to continue and let our farmers and country get ripped off? lost $817 billion on trade last year. no weakness. your thoughts on the president's tweet right now? >> i agree with the president. we have to stand firm. we have to stand up. congress has to stand up and fight for this free trade. it just needs to be done. this has been a long time like this. this isn't just something happened in the last couple years. maria: what are you going to do -- >> this has been going on for decades. maria: what are you going to do? jim, weigh in here. if this is sort of the law of the land, that our trading partners across the world do not back down and they retaliate and they target the farm belt? >> i think what's important, and i would ask the president to be acutely aware of this, is there's a massive transfer of wealth going on from agriculture in the united states to
7:13 am
agricultural producers elsewhere because they are taking our market from us because of these tariffs. so while i agree with leveling the playing field, the playing field is getting swiped clean here in the united states because wealth is being transferred. i think going forward unfortunately we're in commodity production and it is a difficult business and as we were coming out of the dairy recession and starting in march and april, now we're going to have to solve this with people leaving the industry and that's really heart-breaking for many people. families, we in agriculture, we raise our children to raise farmers, our grandchildren, and it is going to be a very painful process if we don't solve this trade problem. maria: do you think this aid is a good idea from the government? >> i think it is nothing more than a short-term fix and if dairy is 3.2 or $3.6 billion of it, it's probably not going to be enough and i'd much rather
7:14 am
see some solid trade deals come along. maria: and so in terms of solid trade deals, you just heard sonny perdue saying look, we're probably going to get something done with mexico sooner than later, hopefully canada follows suit. is that what you would like to see, jim? >> yeah, in that order. i think that's going to be very essential to our success. maria: mark, do you agree with that? >> yes, i do. maria: jeff, final word here. >> definitely mexico first, canada second and really on the dairy side we've got to get rid of the supply side management that canada has for dairy and get to a true free trade agreement up there. maria: we will leave it there. mark, jim and jeff, great to see you all. thanks so much, gentlemen. >> thank you. >> thank you. maria: we will be watching the developments and the president just tweeting this, when you have people sniping at your heels during a negotiation it will only take longer to make a deal and the deal will never be as good as it could have been
7:15 am

7:25 am
joining us right now is judge andrew napolitano. what a story. >> my heart broke when i heard this story because this is the classic example of somebody who should not be deported. a technical violator of the law but a hard working american, a hard working person in america, with an american wife and american children, a person who pays taxes and doesn't break the law. a question. does he deserve to be in jail? there's two standards for putting somebody in jail. one is the evidence of your guilt is so strong that you're like live to leave. -- likely to leave. you the other is you don't have the right to be here in the first place, we're going to hold you until we deport you. we have a federal judge saying this is an exception to both of those cases. this person is not a flight risk. this person is not a danger to himself. he's not a danger to anybody else. he's a productive member of society. he's a provider for a family of five people, let him out of jail. maria: we're learning this man was actually issued an order of
7:26 am
removal from the united states back 2010. >> and he defied it. that's the reason that he was put in jail, was that dedefiance. can the president have a zero tolerance policy? yes. can the president have hardship exceptions to his zero tolerance policy? yes. should judges be deciding what are the hardship exceptions? no, it's an executive branch decision. do i agree with the judge that let him out of jail? absolutely. should he be removed from the country? it's not up to the president personally but it's an executive branch decision. dagen: i want to point out, a senator when she was speaking at some event in new york over the weekend said that priority number one for the democrats if they take back congress in november is to abolish i.c.e., not the economy, not the health of the nation, not national security, not defense, but abolishing i.c.e.
7:27 am
i just -- judge, again, they seem to stand for no borders and no rule of law. >> that is such an extreme unwarranted and dangerous position. there are other ways for them to advance their agenda. you just ticked off problems that affect far more people than i.c.e. they may not like the way i.c.e. does its job but to suggest its abolition is some of the most extreme arguments i've ever heard. i don't see it resonating with voters. maria: exactly. people don't want all these wide open borders and abolishing i.c.e. and for that to be their number one priority -- also elizabeth warren the other day was out saying america was much more prosperous when we had 50% tax rates at the top. >> oh, boy. >> she doesn't understand there were loopholes and they had to revise the tax system them. >> to make it fair. >> to make it more fair. >> abolishing i.c.e., i.c.e. does not protect the borders, i.c.e. goes after people who got in through the borders. are they saying we want them to
7:28 am
get in and stay here illegally and we won't go after them? maria: can you believe this is their campaign. >> abolish border patrol? dagen: it's not extreme that you're hearing this increasingly from a lot of democrats. kirstin gilbrand has her eye on the democratic nomination for 2020. maria: that's why she saying it. they won't get the nomination until they go all the way to the left. >> how will they win a general election? dagen: i.c.e. also stops child an human trafficking. there's been protests when i.c.e. shows up at a house, the protesters will come out of the woodwork when they're there to bust up a child trafficking ring. >> i was critical of children being separated from their parents. that's a judgment call. that's not required by the government. that's not being done by awe
7:29 am
i.c.e. that's border patrol at the border. i'm not sure democrats understand the difference. maria: they're lurching all the way to the left. it's getting harder and hadder for moderates -- harder and harder for moderates to want to be a part of the party. great to get your insights as usual. coming up, a tax attack, elizabeth warren going on the attack, calling for tax cuts to be rolled back, she says if and when they take control of the house, taxes are going up. we'll tell you more of what she's saying. on a roll, the company known for scooters pedaling roller shoes. how much a pair of these segue kicks will cost you, next. ♪ [music playing] (vo) from the beginning, wells fargo has supported community organizations like united way, non-profits like the american red cross, and our nation's veterans. we knew helping our communities was important then. and we know it's even more important today.

workers in the united states right now, clocking three hours of nap time a day for four years, according to an audit. the details coming up this morning. forget hover boards, segue has a new product to make it easier to hurt your knees. it's a pair of self-balancing roller shoes. we'll check out those pics coming up. the top story this half hour, the economy under president trump, house republicans unveiling a tax cut 2.0 package yesterday that proposes permanently extending last year's tax cuts for individuals. house weighs and means committee chairman kevin brady spoke with me about the plan just last week. >> it's going to be a very tight, very focused package, the centerpiece of course is permanence because that's growth, a million and-a-half new jobs and to make sure the future can't come back and steal the tax cuts back. maria: that's exactly what they want to do. senator elizabeth warren said in a recent interview she is vowing
7:36 am
to roll back the gop tax cuts if democrats take control of the senate come november. she says the economy was much more prosperous when tax rates at the top were above 50%. joining us right now is senior vice president, vice chairman of the company, michael sencra. what do you think in terms of the democrats going back to the taxes, 50% for the top end like the elizabeth warren would like to see. what's the impact on the economy and what's been the impact of the president's tax cuts. >> we talked about the importance of getting the tax cuts through. you're seeing the positive impacts. i still think we're in the early stages of the tax implications and the freeing up of capital. some of the things that chairman brady's talking about here is fixing things that i think inherently we knew. there were a lot of technical corrections, things affecting restaurants and reterrells. there's work to do to get them
7:37 am
permanent. there's no question that the tax policy has had a very big impact on the economy and i think a lot more to. maria: are you worried that the cost of this will cut into growth because of the trillion dollar deficits? >> certainly that's an impact of it. i think it far in excess will be the growth implications and ultimately the taxes companies will pay on profits. we continue to see that. we've gone from a consumption based growth stimulus over the last four or five years to now an investment base. the tax cuts are in many ways the anchor around that opportunity. we haven't begun to see those impacts. >> especially for small businesses. we see the biggest beneficiaries of the tax cut is the small businesses. they had to pay a high corporate tax rate. you look at the s&p 500, those companies were paying low net effective tax rates. we're seeing even with the nfib talking about you know what small businesses are doing, they're reinvesting in their businesses, as well as people. they're doing more hiring. in order for us to train more
7:38 am
people and get better jobs for people, tax cuts are the way to go. >> that study that came out shows a 99.6% optimism among small businesses. i believe they believe this tax program is creating investment capital for them to invest. >> speaking of the tax law, one of the benefits will be the ability to expense capital. we were talking earlier that we're seeing a lot of corporations starting to sell off businesses for reinvestment, repurposing those funds into technology. you talk about my saying you innovate or evaporate in this market. >> we just did a study on divestments. it's interesting, something like 87% of the c-suite is talking about the need to divest a as. why? 75% say they need to invest and overweight their investments in the digital economy, including their workers. this upscaling of workers is
7:39 am
critical. if you look at two year and four year universities, they're about flat. we're forecasting flat through 2022. we don't upscale the workers, we're going to have a challenge. the good news is the productivity we continue to see from innovation technology continues to be i believe one of the unsung heros of the economy. maria: the ceo of microsoft was on the program last week. he called that digital transformation business a $4.5 trillion opportunity, dagen, because so many companies have to transition to digital and he's calling it a $4.5 trillion opportunity. dagen: business is extremely healthy. that's one of the reasons it was so important to make the corporate tax cuts permanent so businesses can look not into next year but even five or 10 years down the road and decide where they want to be and make investment decisions for the long haul. in terms of this tax cut 2.0, though, this is more political and kind of a marketing move by
7:40 am
republicans ahead of the midterm elections, because it's going to meet major resistance by republicans over in the senate coming into the mid-terms. they're worried about getting brett cavanaugh on the supreme court. it's a way marketing-wise and slogan-wise to offset what's going on with some businesss in the country because of the trade fight we've got oen into -- we'e gotten into since march of this year manufacture you said you think -- maria: you said you think this will have a long runway. the president weighing in on previous trade deals in washington this morning and yesterday during a speech in kansas city. here's what he said. >> the way we keep america great is to make at least reasonable -- i'm not saying at least reasonable, at least fair trade deals, not stupid trade deals like we've put up with for 25 years. so we're changing it and we're changing it rapidly.
7:41 am
maria: michael, your thoughts. >> well, there's a lot going on in that. some of that is impacting some of the volatility in th the marketplace. i think the trade and the tariffs are way for complicated. we have such an interconnected global economy and supply chain, more than ever. you look at how a phone is made today or a car is constructed, the steel may be coming from multiple mills in multiple different countries. so we do need a balanced trade. we need to do it in a thoughtful way. we need to follow protocols and programs and agreements that are in place. there's no question, we need to continue to evolve that but i think the implement aatioation s creating cause in executives' minds. if they don't understand how they're going to apply the tariffs to their supply chain, it could have untold impacts on investment capital. maria: which dagen's being saying for a long time, companies need certainty in order to make plans. you said a minute ago we've got the business investment fired up. we want that to continue getting fired up.
7:42 am
dagen: the european commission president will be at the white house. i think everybody has their fingers crossed on this about getting something done and these auto tariffs not getting put in place. to the audience, that's why all of the auto manufacturers are opposed to import tariffs on automobiles because theoretically it would also apply to auto parts. this is, again, the majority of cars and trucks that are sold in the u.s. are assembled here but the parts come from all over the place. you have planes all american is trying to build a pipeline from the permian basin down to the gulf coast which is what we need to loosen that bottleneck in terms of petroleum flows. they ordered the steel from greece. they ordered it last year. they wanted a waiver on the steel tariffs from the commerce department. didn't get it. now they're struggling with where are we going to source the steel and how much more are we going to have to pay to build the pipeline. again these stories are piling
7:43 am
up day by day. >> i think we have to be thoughtful, right, michael? you could use tariff as an excuse or we're seeing the earnings today plowing right through them. and you see that all the time in the c-suitings, those discussions. >> i do think structural changes in tariffs and trade are good. they're good long-term plays. but this uncertainty about how to implement it is more critical than ever. we don't want to disrupt what i think is the momentum. we're seeing it with small businesses. we're seeing it generally in the c-suite. we're seeing optimism. you see some of the counter veiling winds, meaning unemployment at historic lows, even upticks, the real story will continue to be workers, the retooling of the workers. productivity gains is another fueler of the economy that i think is helping us in the steady increases. maria: we're getting the gdp report out this week. we're expecting above 4% for the quarter. do you think things slow down towards year-end, real quick? >> i don't think so. maria: you're not looking for a
7:44 am
slowdown? >> not unless something else talks about we haven't talked about. we continue to be bullish. >> the gdp is going to help the deficit. maria: michael, good to see you. thanks so much. we'll be right back,
7:45 am

7:54 am
>> individuals are doing almost the same thing. they're putting houses back on the market this year, expecting a 50% increase. they're not going to get it. we can track lots of people who suffered losses in the last year of something they bought a year ago. maria: why? why is it slowing down? >> there's too much inventory of the type they're looking to sell. new development is an example. everywhere you go there's a hole. new york city, there's a hole, everywhere you go. right? so what happens, all these new buildings, banks got back into the financing business of buildings, they're doing better with clawbacks et cetera, but they're still in the financing business of buildings. there's going to be building when there's money. maria: the supply dictates things, once again. >> that's why vegas is doing better. that's why seattle is doing better. their supplies are not as high. they're going lower and their prices are inching up to a point where i think they will have pullback as well. >> here in new york city, time
7:55 am
on the market has gotten longer and longer and what eventually happens to apartment prices here in new york city, as one example. >> as one example, i say apartment prices continue to be flat which is what they are righter now. they're not down. they're flat. there will be good deals to be had here and there if you have a great broker. >> there's concessions happening in the market. you've had supply come on. you've seen mass investment go on over the last three years. what apartment companies are doing is they're not cutting the rent. they're giving a couple free months here, a couple free months there, so there's concessions coming into the marketplace. >> they're not recorded. the new people coming in don't know about that. that's the interesting part. >> this goes back to that you're seeing a shift where people are wanting to rent because home prices have become so expensive that it's been more advantageous to rent as opposed to purchase homes. >> the buy, sell analysis is always a key analysis that we go through with every single bu bu.
7:56 am
we say you can buy for this, you can rent for this, which one would you prefer. one is more permanent. one keeps you mobile. >> there's a lot of discussion about millennials not wanting to buy a house. it depends on the market. i'm in atlanta. i think the problem may be an inventory or price issue but it may be an age issue. >> millennials want to buy. they don't have the money. they have student loans. they have other pressing issues. maria: but they want to. >> the american dream is to buy a home, 100% of the time. maria: let me ask you about the journal's story today. the data reveals chinese investors were more than $1 billion in the second quarter, purchases remained in the millions, the first time since 2008 that the chinese were net sellers for the quarter. will that be a game changer for the u.s.? is it a different sentiment out of beijing. >> i think it will be a game
7:57 am
changer in the short-term. there's the usual short-term blips. it will be. then somebody will scoop up the property that they'll sell cheap and they'll benefit from it. so it's just a shrm thing. >short-term thing.>> beijing cat to delever the companies. that's why hna is selling properties, including the hilton stake. >> they have great property, i must say. they did pay top price but they have great property. maria: great to see you. come back soon. still ahead, creamy goodness, the new sweet treat that's divided the internet. we'll tell you about may may's ice cream, yeah, i did say that, next hour, right here. amping, we go camping. when it's too hot to work, we work. too wet to keep going? nah. this is the gator xuv835. with game-changing heat and air and three-wide seating. it's never too anything for anything.

awesome get there quick that is awesome better get there quick. >> market wants clarity top story that is exactly what is taking center stage trade president trump set to meet with european commission president jean-claude you juncker amodular trade sensations darrell issaen m of house judiciary a pleasure to see you thanks for joining me. >> thanks, maria thanks for teeing it up the way you did clear the president would take a deal of everyone gets rid of their barriers so we need all equal access, what he doesn't want is and very clear about it doesn't want deals in which at the end of the day, they keep their barriers from goods like europe does for our food, while in fact we strip away our barriers, to them, and that is that is the difference between the democrat tariff which is all about permanently protecting failing industries and republican tariff which is really about using it in order
8:06 am
to create something to trade off, against those who already have larger barriers to entry. maria: sounds like that is exactly the negotiating position, the president is in, and is sticking to. the president tweeting about it this morning, congressman he said this, every time i see a weak politicians asking to top trade talks use of tariffs to counter unfair tariffs i wonder what can they be thinking are we going to continue and let farmers country get ripped off, loss will the 817 billion dollars on trade last year no weakness, then he says this, congressman china is targeting our farmers, who they know i love and respect, as way of getting me to continue allowing them to take advantage of the united states, they are about vicious what will be failed attempt we were being nice until now china made 517 billion dollars on u.s. last year. so the president has a point in terms of getting tougher but congressman what is plan bif our friends stick to it? and continue with retaliatory
8:07 am
tariffs? >> well we are the largest buyer from the rest of the world, of important consumer goods, and even with the -- the tariffs we will continue to be a major buyer of aluminum, and steel. we certainly are the largest consumer of automobiles, but those automobiles could be made in the united states, rather than depending on the imports quite frankly in some cases are genuinely trying to be competitive, and in some cases sheltering domestic markets germany being a good example. >> look when what the administration is doing today, announcing this 12 billion dollars in aid for u.s. farmers affected by current trade dispute early i spoke with agriculture second perdue as well as american dairy farmers this morning joined me this is what they said about this farm aid and trade tensions listen to this. >> this is a temporary measure he hopeful to show china other countries they cannot bully u.s. into caving in on unfair
8:08 am
trade practices that is exactly what president trump's strategy is i think will work certainly we rather have trade rather than aid. >> i estimate the industry is going to lose about and is losing about 10 million dollars a day 3.6 billion dollars a year. >> i do agree with president trump we need to fix this long term so we can have sustainable agriculture. >> what what are your thoughts congressman on this aid? 12 billion dollars, i mean what does it stop? you know, is government going to be expected to give aid to technology companies? and manufactures and apparel makers, et cetera, as tariffs start to take hold? >> well to be partially offset any time a trade difference has been every trade deal including nafta, dollars have been set aside for reeducation, or for lost jobs other compensation. so there is nothing unusual here we can debate the amount and the lengthened based on what events occur, but look,
8:09 am
americans sometimes look at everything as america versus the rest of the world if you step back for a second and i had know you look at the globe, if you look at brexit, that tells what you europe is all about. they're saying to britain we are going to treat you like the yu tates. if you leave us. and you know what that is having a real effect because the relationship within european union what is we have a they are beiethical promise o brexit is showing that they intend and they can use the same techniques against great britain they used against us that is having an effect americans realize we are not in this alone europe uses barriers conveniently against africa china europeans have come into my office saying we are happy you are doing what you are doing on steel we need to do that but, at the same time, when it when they are
8:10 am
unfair traders like on our agricultural products, they go out of their way to pretend it is all about gmos concern for help the when it is a bair to entry of our product. maria: that is important analysis that you make comparing to breksitxit, you thk the president is in negotiations mode and at the end of the day, this will work out? or are you worried about this? >> republicans are backing this president. free trading republicans are backing him because we know that we can't just make deals and then not look at the deals to see whether it is actually giving both sides access. and we have looked at them now the president looked at them he campaigned saying, we are not getting the access from nafta we were supposed to get seeing chinese goods come in with mexican names on them with very little mexican content he looked at each in my district in ka not having sanitation requirements in our agreement from mexico honored
8:11 am
so there are lots of issues, this administration whether it is through epa or commerce or trade ambassador, they are trying simply to get what we were promised what the other side says they have but doesn't have. >> important points you make let me ask you about secretary of state mike pompeo o set to of itb the senate foreign relations committee today what would you like to hear from him regarding the trump-putin summit about and where are we in terms of that relationship in in your view? >> mike is incredibly honest straight forwarded guy when we served together in house never pulled puns i think before senate going to say any time you have to correct and explain a statement by the president of the united states multiple times, it wasn't good wasn't ride what wasn't we would have achieved it does happen but at the end of the day he is going through item by item current sanctions against russia current intent to continue and expand them,
8:12 am
if we can't get the cooperation in syria, in iran, in other areas of the world and, quite frankly, he is going to be asked going to answer just as any member of the house would today are we going to continue to not tolerate and not accept crimea, and ukraine, intervention, and the answer is going to be this administration is not going to simply let those countries regions be taken and accept it so i think those are important questions, they were not answered as well in helsinki as they should have been, mike is prepared going to very clearly secretary is going to collateral but a position that is the final position we understood from the president, and not nell the confusion in helsinki. >> do you think there was success on any level? i mean there are stories out there that they came to an agreement, on syria, putin and president trump did. and also, you know, what is
8:13 am
your take in terms of what the president how is the president needs to handle russia? the two countries 90% of the world's obviously nuclear capability? >> first of all, i think, i have known the president behind closed doors, and always much more fv in that one-on-one, so i wouldn't be surprised that in fact he made real progress, on dealing with the go forward on assad keeping iran out of essentially owning that country as a captive state. on the other part of it i quite frankly think that we have a lot more to do with russia but the one thing we have to understand, is we have to treat them as a first world military power able to extended that anywhere in the world not everywhere but anywhere in the world and then we have to remember, they have an economy to size of italy not an economic giant at all. >> for sure, is there an appetite in congress to put new sanctions against russia right now. >> if necessary, we certainly
8:14 am
could. >> congressman good to see you this morning thanks so nufrp. >> thank you. >> command darrell issa joining us we tell you about wildfires in the west the flooding in the east that is next dow xoenz boeing and coca-cola reportedly reporting are quarterly earnings we break down numbers as the stocks, trade heavy volume this morning boeing down 3 1/2% back in a minute. ♪ ♪ ♪ and our nation's veterans. we knew helping our communities was important then. and we know it's even more important today. so we're stepping up to volunteer more and donate over a million dollars every day. so our communities can be even stronger.

8:34 am
spat answered president trump wrote european union coming to washington tomorrow to negotiate a trait deal i have an idea for them u.s. eu drop all tariffs barriers subsidies that would finally be called free market and fair trade. hope they do it, butdz we are ready. we are but they would be the uk looking to make deals with u.s., as britain work on exit from european union, joining me right now uk international trade second dr. liam fox good to see you, sir thanks very much for joining us this morning. >> good morning. >> what do you wanted to see victory for both sides what do you hope to see out of eu meeting today with mr. juncker and president trump. >> we like deescalation of the old tariff issues particularly on steel and aluminum. but it is britain still in european union, of course, would we follow policy my visit is looking at what we do as you correctly say post exit from european union and when you look at our relationship with united states, we have a
8:35 am
trillion dollars invests in one another's academies u.dk companies by million american workers here, u.s. companies by million uk workers in uk how do we take that relationship on trade and investment to the world's top innovative developed economies how do we shape into global economy in future the challenge real opportunity that acquiesce as we leave european union. >> i know president trump theresa may want to make something work you are in washington today, talking to counterparts about trade after uk leaves the eu you are also getting the pulse of the british people on this issue, why do you see that that is one of the key elements here? >> is this well, we know from recent polling, that well over 60% of the people in united kingdom want a trade agreement with united states, they see the united states, as far and away most important ally, and here i think the rub, that not just about you know whether we can get an extra half percent
8:36 am
on exports or whatever, there is a strategic element, to our trading relationship, global narrative that we need to have, now we are countries that believe have long believed, in an open global trading system we helped set up what is the world trade organization, but if we are going to have a free trade system, wills need to be enforced countries behave like market economies although we have differences over two, for example, for dealing, with chinese, excessive production of steele we accept it is a problem we accept that there is a problem with forced transfer of technology there is a problem with lack of market access particularly in the service sector these things have to be dealt with. maria: right walk us through your time line in terms of britain leaving the eu and then doing a deal with the u.s. on trade. what is the next year and a half look like? >> well, we know, that whether we leave the european union
8:37 am
formally on 29th march next year we are able to negotiate a trade agreements for ourselves, knowing that timetable, if you read it backwards, u.s. tr has to get congress 90 as the' notice that means it has to be done before christmas really that means that we've got to finish our discussion of a mandate he internally by end of october that means we have to begin our public consultation, on potential free trade agreement last week when we did last friday in uk we have begun public consultation for 14 weeks we will take a look at that decide what we think the he level admission show be what it is going to be against on european european the moment what i describe as whether they want a people's brexit or a bureaucrats brexit prosperity economies of europe or about political theology of

8:39 am
president trump suggested? >> well, we would have an ability to to do that when we don't the present time car tariffs a differential between tariffs applied to european cars coming to the states, and american cars coming to europe, we would have ability to to unilaterally make that choice for ourselves, of course, it would be dependent own u.s. making its own adjustments to tariffs on things like lights trucks we pay 25% tariff coming into u.s. that is agreements, ripe if we are able to reach a position that is of mutual advantage speaking at heritage foundation this morning pointing out from adam submitting onwards point is mutual benefit if we can achieve mutual benefit liberate brooiz global trading sprierm helps write rules for that global economy in the neuter not just economic but strategic gain for both every
8:40 am
juice that strategically gain hopefuling comes at some point soon sooner rather than later we are in a period right now uncertainty, where we are not sure where this goes, you have got a handful of companies this morning, whether they give guidance saying well we are expecting higher commodities expenses, you know we're not sure where trade issues are going what kind of impact, does this uncertainty period have do you think, in the broad economic growth story? >> -- i wish i had a dollar for every time i have done an interview people have said it is very uncertain period i must admit period of uncertaincertainty past us there are potential disruptions out there problems inside european union tensions with new i tall lan government wider issue what is happening in global tariffs that all needs to be involved, i think that the best way to look at that result of back to first principles, recognize that having an open trading system, has not only been the means by which we have taken a billion people out of abject poverty
8:41 am
but a means to spreading prosperity provides a politicohesion political stability the building block of global security countries like united states and uk, who have al had the strong belief that open trading system, isn't just end in itself but is actually in the end, a means of underpinning our security and stability, we need to get those goomths o arguments out there make them more widely than in fact past. >> what do you think mr. juncker wants from the president today. >> that is unclear, i have not been party to those discussions. clearly, there want to see de-escalation of the tariff issues but there are fundamental differences of opinion across europe and between europe and united states not immediately apparent to see how that can be done but certainly true, that it is in the interests of all of us, and to de-escalate
8:42 am
turn the tension in interests of all of us to move by what everybody means to more open free liberal trading environment, that in the long term, will be to the advantage of those academies that are the more innovative and creative would i say plays extremely well to natural strengths of the u.s. and united kingdom. >> mr. fox do you think you will be able to do in uk a deal with the european union post-brex post-brexit. >> well we think that we have made a reasonable officer to european union, and it will really be determined now, by whether the decision itself is made by the european commission and bureaucrats in brussels or whether made by leaders of the eu 27 let's face it unlike the commission need to have trade and prosperity and jobs because they have to be reelected, so if there is going to be as i say people's brexit or bureaucrats brekszit the choice europe has to make. >> we will watch developments
