6:02 am
in a heels of tumbling in technology stocks after facebook results disappointed company, this marks the biggest market cap decline in single day in market history. after the big meltdown that we had with facebook, adam, we were talking a little bit, the big story for appearing, of course, will be the iphone sales? >> it is going to be iphone sales, it's going to be interesting to see, they were never going to be in jeopardy with tariffs and china because finished product is not being -- there's a tariff imposed on finished product. it'll be interesting to see if they address the issue, the chinese can retaliate by cracking down with companies that are reliept on chinese producers for components, it's going to be interesting to see if they do weigh in on that. cheryl: also, lee, you can tell by your polling i'm sure that the prices start to creep up on the u.s. consumer whether it's apple, whether it's harley
6:03 am
davidson, that's all going to start impact on the politics side of this in. >> it is going to have impact on politics side of this, it's really important that the president have ricketry with europe last week, people were starting to get concerned about trade, for a long time more than two-thirds of americans were saying, we are willing to say that we believe that the tariffs are negotiating strategy by the president, we don't think it's going to have a long-term impact on us, he needed to have a win to try to keep the concerns at bay as the midterms are coming up, if people start to feel in pocketbook and whatever the case is it's going to be hard for the republicans to say this is a good strategy. cheryl:erin, that's a good point. >> what trump sees is a long play and when you a midterm election of such significance importance long plays really don't work, he is a businessman, we know the art of the deal, he is the art of the deal, this is a way that he showed with meetings in europe to squeeze
6:04 am
people i promised you on campaign trail, nafta included and we are starting to see the things happening and the long play, maybe shortened and midterms to be saved. >> there are people in the country who are being asked to take a greater sacrifice during the negotiations and that's the farmers and, yes, $12 billion to assist but we export $140 billion worth of agricultural products each year, 12 billion is not going to carry these men and women very far for very long and they are not happy. they are -- look, des moines register, 624 million lost because of soybean, it's not just soybean that's taking a hit, corn, you saw the story about beef piling up in freezers, we have an election cycle every two years, the chinese don't have the same kind of pressure on them to react. >> well, obviously the interview with that maria had with the vice president made a lot of news, vice president pence did tout the trump administration's economic progress and denied that part of the gdp growth was
6:05 am
foreign buyers stocking on american products before retaliatory tariffs go into place. >> in the last two administrations the economy grew by 2% and in the first 18 months of this administration, shy of 3% last year, we are on track to be at 3% or better this year. maria: how much of this water was goosed by businesses trying to get ahead of the president's tariff? >> so we think we are seeing real progress, we don't think this was an anomaly. we think american exports are on the rise as reflection of strong economy and frankly a reflection of the president's strong leadership on improving trade relationships for american jobs and american workers. cheryl: lee, what is your reaction to comments and this is all about at the end of the day, it's about the american worker that is their focus? >> that's right, i've got to say
6:06 am
that this messaging, getting people to come to long-term strategy but also this message that we are fighting for the american people putting america first set people up to believe this is what's going to happen. they keep seeing the kinds of things, they see the growth, they see the markets, they see 401(k)'s and irs growing, you know what, i'm willing to take a bet on some of these things that i'm not agreeing with and let's be very, very clear a lot of voters out there are saying there are certain things about the president that make me uncomfortable but when i look at members, when i look at balance, when i look at tax reform, when i look at growth in the economy i'm willing to take it. >> erin, it's the economy stupid, that quote still rings true today. >> at the end of the day i think lee probably knows better than i, the american people are not word about stormy daniels, they are worried about paying bills
6:07 am
and making sure taxes are within range and american people really do care about that and the economy is working. cheryl: what's interesting, if you look at what the chinese are doing are targeting base to put pressure on him to back off of him, that's the chinese strategy, does it work? >> that's what the chinese are doing when you see them retaliate in agriculture in midwest. the other question if tax cuts were so beneficial as republicans saying, why are republicans not using that on campaign trail with constituents? i mean, democrats will point out a thousand dollar bonuses that a lot of people got were not pay increases, you might have gotten bonus -- cheryl: called it crumbs. >> did that poll well? >> that was a sound bite they kept giving. cheryl: nancy pelosi hinted that she would push back to roll back tax cuts, really?
6:08 am
>> good luck trying to get that done. you can expect to hear from democrats, a trillion dollar deficit but the republicans said the tax cuts would pay for themselves over time and what you're hearing different people in the administration say is i think it was kudlow on friday we need a year or two where we grow out of deficits. cheryl: a lot of officials out of the weekend talking to media, treasure resecretary mnuchin says period of us taken gdp growth over the next several years, listen. >> we can only project a couple of years in the future but we are well on the path for several years so i don't think this is a one or two-year pe -- phenomena, we are in a 3% sustained growth. cheryl: is that realistic? >> yeah, simply because of what tax cuts did and putting more money into the pockets of more
6:09 am
americans, yeah, you will see that over time. 5 years, i hope so. cheryl: that would be nice, right? lee: really nice. >> that's what the president foresees. cheryl: that's what steve mnuchin said on sunday. i mean, the companies are doing really well right now. lee: companies are doing really well, earnings are going really well outside of tech stocks, they had own reasons for it. those should be a distraction from what the larger message is and i think by in large the american people are optimistic about the future right now, they feel good, they feel these things. now, adam to your point, the farmers and, you know, china going after the red states, i think that's significant but i think the president has done so much laying that foundation that people understand it might be hard to get wins in the long
6:10 am
term and as long as they see small victories along the way, they would be willing to stick with them, i don't know how long but stick with them for a period of time. >> the only thing i would say it's easy for us who don't rely incomes based on agriculture to ask other people to stick it out and i real the 12 billion-dollar supplements are designed to help folks but 330 million of us in the united states are not being asked to make the sacrifice that thousands of men and women who are farmers are being asked and how long you can ask that of just a small portion of the population for these negotiations, we will see. cheryl: trade not aid, we heard that, that phrase so many times in the last week, we will be bringing you much more of maria's interview with vice president mike pence, that's going to be coming up on the show including, this is cool, never before seen look inside the vice president's office at the white house. sneak peek for you, the wild fires in california have killed

6:20 am
cheryl: well, big technology on track this morning, the company's second quarter follows disappointing report facebook wiping out 2018 giants and posting the largest loss by any company in history following disastrous quarterly report. twitter, that stock went plummeting, let's bring jonathan, oh, man, i tell you it was a rough week for technology jonathan last week. >> brutal. haven't seen anything like it. cheryl: i feel like we should move on and talk about apple and put last week behind us.
6:21 am
let's talk about apple's report, do you think that will help the sector turn itself around? >> let's hope, let's hope so, cheryl, the blood bath in the nasdaq almost we haven't seen certainly since the election, since the election technology stocks like apple have accounted for half of the market's total gain. the big-tech stocks, netflix, apples, teslas, these have been drivers of the markets, investors will be listening very closely not only about prospect of new phone we heard from conference calls but profit of growth in their cloud business. iphone still counts for 62% of apple sales but that's almost the old news, the new news for apple in terms of earnings is the cloud. but, cheryl, to your original point, given the damage in tech stocks last week, a lot of investors hope to get through this earning season without ending more major blow-up like tesla and twitter. >> i wanted to pick up on something you say as they shift
6:22 am
towards the cloud, we saw what amazon did with their web services and blew everyone away. and apple, we think of them, i get confused but hardware company and yet their software and cloud services, you know, the music offerings, tv offerings, this is where they are trying to go, isn't it? >> yeah, you're absolutely right, adam. i think what has made apple so successful, this is a company that's on the cusp of becoming a 1 trillion-dollar company for the first time, what's made successful to your point willingness to not only cannibalize products and reinvent themselves, majority of the profit now, the revenue comes from iphone, this is a product that didn't exist 15 years ago. so absolutely. the cloud is really where the margins are, it is where the growth is and the prospect of growth adam, that is what has investors concerned because techs are been trading expensive. many are called unicorns like tesla, for example, so once that
6:23 am
becomes mirky, the stocks can take a dive and take a dive big time. cheryl: they will have the conference call after numbers come out at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. i can't wait to hear what they say about china. i'm going to break a promise and go back to facebook, there was late-breaking news friday night that the company, the ceo mark zuckerberg sued by manhattan share hold -- shareholder, the stock price fell once truth was revealed. the basis of this one is interesting. >> yeah, especially happened a lot of time with big successful companies with a lot of money like facebook. don't see this in particular, cheryl, having a major impact but simply the confidence of shareholders themselves obviously some lost money and have lost confidence but more and more are going to continue to lose confidence, you know, essentially big cap tech can't
6:24 am
power the market forward, what will? that's what investors should be most worried about, not small lawsuits like this, this will come and go, what will leave the economy and leave the market if it's not big-cap tech we will have a better idea little later in the week. cheryl: erin, has a question for you. >> i know that you're a hedge fund guy, hedge funds according to goldman sachs, count facebook as top holding, was this a big hit to hedge funds or do you they will rebound quickly? >> you can't follow the crowd. you have to get ahead of the crowd. to your point, hedge funds, everyday folks have bought in this idea of big cap tech stocks as being market leaders, market essentials, we saw very much the same idea back in late 1990's when people fell that cisco and microsoft were the only stock that is you needed to own, in
6:25 am
90's. [laughter] >> we are seeing the same type of attitude now i think that's one reason, you know, warren buffet says a good line, be greedy when others are fearful but i see some greed right now. cheryl: i want to switch gears, there's a new report in wall street journal today, no experience necessary. basically certain companies are saying, we are not going to worry about work history, college degree, don't worry about that, lowering the bar, desperate to get people in the company, this is beneficial for companies long-term if you get somebody that doesn't have the experience they need? >> what -- what a change, cheryl, i remember talking with you ten years ago, this -- people were advanced degrees were banging on doors and couldn't find work at all, that was amidst the great depression, times have changed, indicative of tremendous workforce.
6:26 am
it's indicative that the job market has changed, cheryl, what does google care what school you went to, they want to know if you can program. >> it sounds that you're pessimistic about the market based on the fact that you think tech drives so much growth, are there any bright spots that you're looking at? >> yeah, i think you have to be cautious, again, given what we saw last week and i think now more than anything is the time and it's not sexy, it's not exciting like stock tickers but we heard time and time again how most investors, most americans couldn't even come up with three to six months of living expenses, couldn't come up with cash, so look, i agree with the vice president and his terrific with interview about how stelar the economy is, knowing that, i think now is a good time to get one financial house in order, three months, six months worth
6:27 am
of cash, living expenses in the bank and then it's time to get optimistic because even if the economy falls you're protected long term. cheryl: you want to have extra cash on hand because you never know. >> you never know. cheryl: jonathan, good to see you, thank you for coming on. >> thanks, cheryl. cheryl: you too, coming up last-minute emergency action in pennsylvania stops company from releasing blueprints for 3d guns online. we have a new controversy in what was already a controversy coming up. and dustin johnson pulls off big victory in canadian open, details on how lucky 19 secures his place in history
6:28 am
how do you win at business? stay at laquinta. where we're changing with contemporary make-overs. then, use the ultimate power handshake, the upper hander with a double palm grab. who has the upper hand now? start winning today. book now at lq.com. and i'm still going for my best even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'm up for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. so what's next? seeing these guys. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
6:29 am
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.
6:30 am
cheryl: good morning, i'm cheryl casone in for maria bartiromo, it is monday july 30th, your top stories at 6:30 a.m. eastern time. another week of big name earnings are coming up. we are waiting on caterpillar this morning and other dow components will report this week, that includes pfizer, proctor&gamble and apple. after last week's disappointing performance by facebook and twitter it's more important, one
6:31 am
word on the lips of companies all over the world is tariffs, maria, spoke with vice president mike pence in exclusive interview when she talks about president trump's attempt to level the playing field. >> it's a great day for america, a year that's on track for more than 3% growth is a testament to the president's leadership and his vision for this economy. can he recall cheryl well, meanwhile speaking of the economy futures showing mixed bag this morning after brock buster number on friday, dow up 7 in premarket, nasdaq is down 13 and a half. now the markets ended in the red as you can see on friday, the dow lost 76, s&p down 18, nasdaq that was the big story, obviously the technology story, nasdaq lost 1 and a half on friday. we will see if today is a different story. all the markets in the red, that follows tech stock friday, all in the negative.
6:32 am
asian markets ending lower across the board, big losses were in japan down three quarters of a percent there. well, it is a black eye for cbs, network's board of directors preparing investigation into allegations that ceo sexually harassed women, we have the details coming up on this, plans for 3d printed gun jammed in pennsylvania, lawmakers with last-minute attempt to block the distribution of the plans in the state. massive impact, bubba wallace in high-speed crash, we will have the latest on his condition and dustin johnson, we will talk about it with jared. not content with making electric cars, tesla is making leap to surf, you have to see this one to actually believe it, but, yeah, it's real. now to our top story this half hour, tariffs hitting consumers,
6:33 am
companies are increasing prices on goods ranging from soda, recreational vehicles, to beer and that's now going to cost more to produce as a result of recent aluminum and steel tariffs, bmw following tesla, lit raise prices of u.s.-made suv's in china to counter act effects of tariffs. joining me hugo. >> good morning, cheryl. cheryl: do you think price increases will turn voters off to the president's message of renegotiating all of the agreements? >> well, it's a big risk, raising tariffs is essentially like raising taxes on americans and also kills jobs, if you raise tariffs it's on steel and aluminum, push up the prices, soda cans, you pay more for soda, it's going to push up more of price of nails and houses, it's a very high-risk strategy, just recently we have been seeing signs from some notable
6:34 am
economic writers, wall street journal, mark at the american enterprise institute writing in the washington post suggesting that these tariffs are having their effect on china, last week we saw a deal with the european union or the beginnings of a deal which will open up their markets and at the same time the europeans agreed to buy more soybeans, now, that counteracts china which is the biggest importer of soybean, so there are signs that what donald trump is doing is putting the squeeze on china and the point that you made earlier adam about how long can people stand the pain of this is the big question. do more people turn against the president because they themselves are losing their jobs or does it have the impact on china? >> well, can i ask you about a question about china because the squeeze is on china and i know we will get into that but the chinese and this is extreme statement but the chinese kill own people years ago, but the government in china, the 80 million people who are
6:35 am
members of communist party, is the squeeze on them, i realize 600 million in middle class in china have pressure but the chinese government show willingness to ignore their own people. >> certainly, one doesn't expect chinese bureau and party to care very much about the people but the chinese stock market lost 25% in the first half of this year. the yuan, terrible june and looks like terrible july as well. what they fear for emerging market even though it's the second biggest in the world is flight of capital. they don't want to see further tanking in their stock market, they really are going to feel the pressure from these -- cheryl: they have to come to the table when it comes to intellectual property and the vice president talked about that with maria that we are aware of the sharing of technology that's forced sharing of technology between u.s. companies and china, you want to deal with china you to open up ip, that's
6:36 am
the big problem. i want to stay with trade and switch gears, senator graham said yesterday that the u.s. be pulled out of world trade organization unless china starts playing by the rules. >> let's go to zero as soon as we can. let's get rid of subsidies and reunite and reform wto, if you want to stay in wto, we have new rules to abide by, kick them out or we get out, one of the two, the wto is not working. cheryl: all right, standing tough on china, is that the message for the republicans in the midterms? >> well, i don't know how much trade issues are going to affect the midterms, i think people will feel -- if their pocketbooks feel good they will be happy. but i do think that -- i think it's very unlikely that the united states is going to pull out testify wto, i think that's a very long-term process but lindsey graham is right. china has been unfair to the united states in its trade
6:37 am
policies. president trump is putting a lot of pressure on them and, you know, there are signs that they might crack, i don't think the wto process is quick enough. cheryl: what do you make of that, you constantly do polling of americans, what do you think of that? >> i'm son cyst ently surprised by how much people support the president on these issues even knowing that they might hurt them in the short term or long term, we don't know how long this is going to go. they are a long gain. they don't have midterms, they don't have four-year elections, they have this long-term view of the world that we simply can't understand. when i talk to american voters, when i talk to republican voters and large number of independents, you know it's about time that we have a politician that's willing to get up there and stand up for us first and say we will put our needs first and we are willing to take short-term pain and i
6:38 am
never would have believed that this was going to happen, when i look at polling numbers and i'm looking consistently, i'm willing to stick this out and i understand adam your point on the farmers and they are taking it on the chin and a lot of them are upset and the president is going out there and offering aid packages. it's almost opposite of any political movement, i get it, it's harder for me but it's worth it. can he recall herl hugo, i want to ask you about something else about social media censorship. devin nunes was on sunday morning futures with her yesterday, he's considering legal action to deal with twitter shadow banning of conservative voices. listen to this. >> you had a report that came out that in fact, there were four people in house of
6:39 am
representatives, officials that they were quote, unquote, shadow banning, some type of trap where people couldn't see twitter feed, gaetz, meadows and myself, i don't know what twitter is up to. sure looks like they are censoring people and they ought to stop it and we are looking at illegal -- legal remedy that is we can go through. >> i don't know there are legal remedies, referring to fcc. maybe there's some kind of case that you can make that this is an in-kind contribution to democrats or such thing. these are private companies and they're allowed to be politically biased. conservatives over the past six months have felt not being presented on social media as much as they were. people lost traffic et cetera,
6:40 am
et cetera. cheryl: erin, you can comment on that? >> i had experience with candice owens and likes were disappearing and when you try to contact platform you get rad roy silence and people speak about facebook only, what people failed to understand that instagram is also owned by facebook. what do we do, what are consumers to do? >> i think -- one of the things that's really interesting about this is that social media -- unlike phone companies in that the phone companies don't get blame for what is said on the phone, but social media, they've decided that they will police content. so, you know, they are saying we will cut out fake news, we will do sort of online highingen, et cetera, as soon as you try to police you have to take responsibility for it and if
6:41 am
people see bias in way you are policing, they get terribly upset. lee: one of the biggest concerns is what they label as hate language and saying a lot of conservative language is hate language and i have seen posts -- cheryl: ask diamond and silk. great to hear the lovely british accent this morning, wakes me up, hugo, thank you. coming up we have troubles to tell you about at cbs. the pane's board is looking at ceo's future amid sexual harassment allegation, that's coming up. tesla is going off road, yeah, we off road with sufficient. >> boards, wait till you hear what they cost if you can even get one.
6:42 am

7:02 am
america. in the second quarter, 4.1% growth, exports growing dramatically, that added to the reality of 3.7 million new jobs created since election day 2016, i just -- i couldn't be more proud to serve alongside a president who has been working every day to keep the promise he made to the american people, to roll back red tape, cut taxes, and i think the 4.1% quarter and a year on track for more than 3% growth is a testament to the president's leadership and vision for the economy. maria: what were the most important take-aways for the quarter? a lot of conversation about whether or not this is a one quarter thing or whether or not we're going to see this sustained. >> it's important to recognize in context that the reality is in the last two administrations, the economy grew by less than 2%. and in the first 18 months of this administration we were a little shy of 3% last year. we're on track to be at 3% or better this year and we really
7:03 am
believe the internals of the numbers, whether the dramatic increase in business investment, dramatic increase in american exports, all support the conclusion that the policies that president trump has been advancing, that are a public -- that our public and congress are supporting, are working to revive the economy. but you sense real momentum. i was in north dakota and montana this week, west virginia a couple days ago, and you sense out on the street, talking to everyday americans, talking to business leaders, that the best is yet to come, that the numbes tell the tale but the enthusiasm and the confidence all across this country among business leaders and businesses large and small tells the same story and more. maria: mr. vice president, how much of this quarter was goosed by businesses trying to get ahead of the president's tariffs? there is a narrative out there that china, for example, was rushing to buy more soybeans,
7:04 am
buy crude oil and other commodities so they would get ahead of the president's tariffs that haven't taken effect yet. >> we heard that theory. the reality is when you look at the whole quarter, american exports were up by more than 9% and our trade deficit was down by $50 billion. you heard the president say on friday just how enthusiastic he was about seeing our trade deficit coming down. and we really think we're just getting started. we don't believe this was a reaction to the president's strong leadership in renegotiating our trade relationships. a great breakthrough this last week with the european union, now the united states and e.u. will begin working toward a trade arrangement that zero tariffs, zero nontariff barriers and opens up congress and as well as the e.u. beginning to buy more soybeans from american farmers.
7:05 am
we think we're seeing real progress. we don't think this was an anomaly. we think american exports are on the rise as a reflection of a strong economy and a reflection of the president's strong leadership on improving our trade relationships for american jobs and american workers. maria: when do you expect the president will be able to another solid official trade deal? will you be able to announce trade deals before the midterm elections? >> we're encouraged about the progress we're making about the north american free trade agreement. the u.s. trade representative continues to believe there's a possibility that before we get to labor day we may have a reformed nafta agreement. but those details are still being worked out. look, the president came into this administration with the belief that for too long americans, our economy, our workers had been taken advantage of by imbalanced trade deals and whether it be in renegotiating
7:06 am
south korea, whether it be opening up markets to american exports and agricultural goods, renegotiating nafta or resetting the balance in our relationship with the european union and of course resetting the balance or huge imbalance with china, we really believe that that kind of strong leadership on behalf of american jobs and workers is actually contributing the momentum that we saw in the second quarter numbers. maria: do you think you'll have a deal with mexico by labor day? >> we remain hopeful that in the coming months that we'll be able to reach an agreement. but i can assure you that president trump's going to continue to stay focused on american manufacturing and american agriculture and we're going to renegotiate nafta in a way that's a win for working americans in the city and on the farm. maria: mr. vice president, some lawmakers criticized the meeting with the e.u., 24 lawmakers said that's impacting their chances for re-election come november.
7:07 am
andy barr is saying the bourbon makers in kentucky are being hurt by the retaliatory tariffs out of europe. mr. hazanga of michigan is complaining about higher raw material prices. is this going to impact those races in. >> we think a better trade relationship with the european union, a more fair, more reciprocal relationship will benefit every american. we respect members of congress. it's remarkable to think all the progress we've made in the last 18 months has been made in partnership with republican majorities but it's been against an unprecedented level of democrat obstruction. it is amazing to think just as an aside, maria, that in the last year and-a-half our administration has faced more filibusters, called by chuck schumer and the democrats in the senate, by a factor of four times more than any administration going all the way back to the carter administration.
7:08 am
so we respect members of congress. we respect them standing up for interests in their district. but we're grateful for the support they provided for the president's agenda and we remain confident that as we reset the balance in those trading relationships, that it's going to win for their districts and win for america. maria: the lack of democratic support brings me to my next question which is about tax cuts 2.0. you're working on another plan to lower taxes, trying to make the individual cuts permanent. but is this just a ploy to make sure to remind the american people that yours is the party of tax cuts right before the midterm elections? the truth is, you're not going to get democratic support for that or do you believe the economy needs more stimulus? >> president trump and i have worked closely with the republican leadership to fashion tax cuts 2.0. the reality is that before christmas last year president trump signed the largest tax cuts and tax reform in american history. i think the enthusiasm you see among everyday americans, the
7:09 am
investment that we saw in this last quarter by american businesses, is an affirmation of that tax cut package that was passed. but president trump absolutely believes it's important that we make tax cuts permanent. we're going to work with members of congress to move this legislation forward, even as it's unveiled in the coming weeks, and i promise you in the years ahead president trump is going to continue to look for ways we can let the american people keep more of what they earn and we can create the kind of reforms in our tax code that will encourage businesses to invest here and create jobs here in usa. maria: the president tweeted about the federal reserve. he said it's crazy that the federal reserve will be raising interest rates. if the economy's so great, why not raise interest rates? >> we respect the independence of the federal reserve. the president reflected his own personal opinion about that. but what we don't want to see happen going forward is we don't want policies, whether capitol hill or elsewhere, that diminish
7:10 am
the tremendous energy we have in the economy today. look, as i said before, as i travel across this country you sense the confidence that americans feel again in a very real sense. it's like a steelworker said in granite city, illinois yesterday, with tears in his eyes, he said we're back and i sense that all across the country. people see in president trump someone who has a boundless confidence in the american future. also they see a president who has been keeping promises to cut taxes, roll back red tape, unleash american energy and the american people are responding. i mean, the second quarter numbers, 4.1% growth, on track this year for 3% growth, after 16 years that averaged less than 2%, it's a testament to the president's determination and leadership, it's a testament to the members of congress and partners in the republican majorities that have supported the president and it's also a testament to the ingenuity, the
7:11 am
resilience, determination and confidence of the american people in president trump's vision. maria: that ingenuity is being robbed by the chinese. let's talk china for a moment. the president is using tariff as a way to leverage to get the chinese to stop stealing from us. we know china has been stealing intellectual property for decades, transferring technology. are tariffs the answer to get them to stop? they won't even admit they're doing it. >> when you look at our trade deficit around the world, nearly $800 billion on an annual basis, maria, as you know well, fully half of that is with china. for too long china has had virtually unfettered access to the american economy and the american consumer and american companies have faced significant barriers. the issues you raise represent a genuine threat to our economy. it's absolutely essential that we protect intellectual property from being stolen by interests
7:12 am
in china. it's essential we end the forced technology transfers that exist. we remain confident, as the president takes a strong stand and we continue to pursue a policy of raising barriers until we achieve reciprocal relationship with china, i truly believe based on the relationship that president trump has forged with president xi and frankly, based on things that president xi has said on precisely those issues, recent speech several months ago president xi many reported for the very first time talked about the need to address and protect intellectual property and end forced technology transfers and we believe raising those issues and recognizing the need for more fair and balanced trade relationship gives us hope that we can improve this relationship. make no mistake about it, president trump is going to continue to stand strong until we achieve free, fair and reciprocal trade relationship
7:13 am

on immigration including increased funding for a barrier across the u.s. border with mexico. president tweeting yesterday, i would be willing to shut down government if the democrats do not give us the votes for border security which includes the wall, must get rid of lottery, catch and release, et cetera and go to a system of immigration based on merit. we need great people coming into our country. mike pence spoke with maria on friday, discussing the resistance facing republicans in congress. this coming as democrat congresswoman maxine waters ramped up her rhetoric against the president yesterday. >> it's amazing to think as an aside, maria, that in the last year and-a-half our administration has faced more filibusters called by chuck schumer and the democrats in the senate by a factor of four times more than any administration going all the way back to the carter administration. >> this president is a bully.
7:25 am
he'll try and intimidate all office. he's not going to shut down anything. we're not going to be intimidated by his bluffing and his bullying. cheryl: joining us now, tennessee congressman chuck fleischman. good morning, congressman? >> good morning. thank you for having me. cheryl: there's so much news that broke over the weekend. you serve on house appropriations. you passed on homeland security bill. there's $5 billion in that for a border wall. what do you take on the fact that there's not been a vote on this and the president wants to see action on something he ran for when he was running for president. >> well, it's a good point. house appropriations members and house republicans have done their job. i am prief lend to -- privileged to full on the homeland security subcommittee. we passed a bill for wall funding last week. we passed all 12 appropriations bills in our committee. things are looking good on the
7:26 am
house republicans side. unfortunately, democrats are impeding this wall process which is going to happen. the wall needs to be built. it's got to be built. i think the president's correct. we're doing our job as house republicans. the democrats need to step up and do the right thing and support increased funding, not only for the border wall but all border security. >> congressman, this is lee carter. we need to get democrats on-board with this. are there any democrats right now that you can engage in conversation who are willing to make some kind of compromise? we just see the gridlock, we just see the message of resist. it's frustrating. i want to know, who is willing to come to the table? >> you never know with the democratic party, it changes week to week but early on in the process if you recall earlier this year even some of the more liberal democrats were willing to talk about wall funding in exchange for other forms of immigration reforms. i think there is always an open dialogue.
7:27 am
let's face it. it's an election year. the democrats don't have much to run on. things are going so well in the country. the president and vice president are doing a great job. house republicans are doing a great job. so they don't have much to run on except their rhetoric and they go back to their broken rhetoric time and time again. >> congressman, adam shapiro here. correct me if i'm wrong, but why do you need the democrats? you have th majority in the houe or is there problems within the republican caucus that there are those who might not be quite as willing to pass all of the appropriation bills the house has considered? >> over time, you're right, we have had some problems within our own conference getting appropriations bills passed. i don't think that's going to be the problem now. i would look to the senate if you're going to see real problems. we need 60 votes in the senate. that has been a constant problem. democrats have filibustered this administration time and time again. but when you look at the basics,
7:28 am
everything is going so well with the economy, unemployment low, consumer confidence high, and the democrats really have nowhere to go except back to their broken rhetoric. border security is something that the american people want and demand. the wall is a big part of that. i think we need to have it. cheryl.cheryl: it's one of then reasons that trump was elected the gdp grew the fastest pace in nearly four years. as we heard earlier, the vice president did weigh in on the white house's agenda to rev up america's economy on friday. listen. >.>> couldn't be more proud to serve alongside a president who has been working every day to keep the promise he made to the american people, to roll back red tape, to cut taxes, unleash american energy. i think the 4.1% quarter and a year that's on track for more than 3% growth is a testament to the president's leadership and
7:29 am
his vision for this economy. cheryl: congressman, your take on that? >> well, i think the vice president is spot-on. he's correct. i give very high marks to the administration for the way they have worked with us. but let's also give high marks to republicans in congress. the midterm elections are coming up. it's very important. what did we say for years? if you reduce taxes, reduce regulation, empower entrepreneurs in america, the economy is going to respond. woulwow, has it responded, a 4.1 growth quarter, unemployment down, this is great. what do we see all this week? we see people come out on the other side trying to say well, is this an abrasion -- aberration, will it be enough. whether you have 2 or 4% growth, you have growth, you've got optimism. i served for the majority of my time in congress sadly under an administration, the prior administration, that really was in the dulldrums economically.
7:30 am

cheryl: welcome back. i'm cheryl casone in for maria bartiromo this morning. it is monday, july 30th. your top stories at 7:30 a.m. eastern time. more big name earnings coming out this week. we just got numbers from caterpillar in. the company beating on earnings and revenue, caterpillar also raising their earnings guidance for the year. the stock is higher by more than 2 1/4% in the premarket. other companies reporting pfizer, procter & gamble and apple. the tech giant is in everybody's sights after disappointing reports from facebook and twitter. apple is slightly on the upside. major markets all in the red on friday, a lot of that was the tech story, the nasdaq down -- in the premarket right now the
7:35 am
nasdaq is down by 21 points, the s&p is down as well. there's the close from friday. look at the nasdaq, you see the loss of almost 1.5%, that's the technology story. dow lost 76 on friday. in europe, the pressure on the tech story continued. ftse coming into the green, up more than 6 points, the dachshund cac -- dax and cac are in the red. the nikkei lost 3/4 of a percent, the worst loser over there. tough road ahead for judge brett kavanaugh. he is sitting down with joe mansion, someone who could hold the key for his confirmation. in an interview, maria spoke with vice president mike pence and asked what he thought about judge kavanaugh. >> brett kavanaugh deserves a fair hearing and deserves their support to be confirmed as the next justice of the supreme court of the united states.
7:36 am
we remain confident that before the fall is out, that brett kavanaugh will be justice brett kavanaugh. cheryl: we'll have more from maria's interview coming up. you don't want to miss our never before seen look inside the vice president's office in the white house where he shares his father's bronze star. all right, security insecurity, the tsa has reportedly been using computers to track information on u.s. si citizens, even if they're not suspected of terrorism, details ahead on that. and mcdonald's releasing mccoin in honor of the big mac's 50th birthday. we'll let you know how to get ahold of one. we hope you saved room for desert for breakfast. it's national cheesecake day. it's a great day, everybody. we'll find out where to score deals during this incredible celebration in just a bit. now to our top story this half hour, major meeting, supreme
7:37 am
court nominee brett kavanaugh set to middl meet with west vira senator joe mansion today. he's expected to be a pivotal vote for kavanaugh's confirmation this fall. here now, judge andrew napolitano. what do you think mansion wants out of this one? >> votes from his very difficult contest with the republican attorney general of west virginia, a jersey guy, who moved south because it's a very tight race. this is the intersection of the judiciary and politics when senators can decide that it's in their best interest, their interest in keeping their job, to vote against what the majority of their party wants. i wouldn't be surprised if joe mansion along with two or three other democrats running for re-election, tough races in states that president trump carried by heavy margins vote for judge kavanaugh. i also think that judge kavanaugh does not need a single democratic vote because i think
7:38 am
all the republicans will vote for him. john mccain not voting and that will give them the 51 votes that they need. if that happens, you know this better than i, then it's easy and comfortable for mansion and the others to vote for him. it lets them score points at home and they weren't the tipping point. if rand paul and mike lee and others pull away from brett kavanaugh, then mitch mcconnell must have those democrats, otherwise the nomination loses. i don't see that happening. >> i'm curious what you think that they might uncover that might cause concern about this justice. is there anything? >> there are republicans, i among them, who object to judge kavanaugh's views on the fourth amendment. i characterized his nomination at the exact opposite of the type of person president trump nominated in neil gorsuch and said he would nominate. this judge is from the heart and soul of the washington establishment. his entire life with the
7:39 am
exception of his seven years at yale, we'll grant him those seven years at yale, you wore yale blue today -- >> not on purpose. >> has been spent as part of the washington establishment. the particular sticking point with senator paul and senator lee and those of us who believe that the constitution means what it says is the fourth amendment. judge kavanaugh has written that intelligence is not covered by the fourth amendment, meaning the nsa can spy all they like. with the exception of his opinion, there's no opinion holding that. cheryl: there's a lot of confidence about kavanaugh's consistent form -- confirmation. maria spoke with the vice president. >> i think the vice president is correct, they won't need the democratic votes. cheryl: listen to what he told her about the nomination. listen to this. >> for the president of the united states in this deliberation, he was looking for a judge with extraordinary
7:40 am
credentials and i thin i think t also -- intellect, but also a judge that would not legislate from the bench. judge brett kavanaugh has that judicial philosophy. we remain confident that before the fall is out that judge brett kavanaugh will be justice brett kavanaugh. >> i think he's correct that he will be on the bench before the first monday in november which is before the new supreme court session begins. i don't think shuc shuck shy --k schumer has the muscle. cheryl: what does that mean for the midterms? >> i have a question about the midterms, actually. what do you think is going to happen coming down the pike, what cases, you're worried about the fourth amendment issue, what cases do you see that they could hear as the next supreme court sits? >> not before the midterm but they will eventually be hearing
7:41 am
whether or not the computer chip in this iphone is protected by the fourth amendment, whether the government needs a warrant in order to get into or get access to this iphone. the cases are all over the place. i once asked justice scalia about this. he said i don't think i should answer. i know that case -- i asked him this in front of an audience -- the case is making its way to the supreme court. that will probably make its way to the supreme court assuming he's confirmed in the next two months in his first year on the bench. cheryl: i have to ask you about rutruth bader ginsburg. she is saying she has five more years on the ben. the bench. what do you make about that? >> she once said if donald trump was elected president she would move to canada. i don't know where the number five came from. she is really up there in years, the oldest justice we had that wept on in 63 and retired at 93. so she still has a little ways to go. >> she's 85.
7:42 am
>> she's only 85. >> i think all the wine is keeping her young. >> her new movie career is what's keeping her young. >> and the calisthenics. she does that in her office. >> she lifts weights, she does exercises every day. >> wine and exercise. cheryl: there you go, wine and exercise. >> not a bad combination, even at 7:45 in the morning. >> at least i have one of the two down. cheryl: and there's food on the show as well. >> where's the cheesecake. cheryl: judge, thank you so much. good to have you here. coming up, the undercover officers working to keep the skies safe are surveilling ordinary americans without a warrant. the controversy over the secret tsa program ahead. plus, say cheesecake, how you can celebrate national cheesecake day with sweet deals, that's next. ♪ year, i am sorry about that.
