will be saying they'll be serious consequence ifs hard-liners try to remain in control of the negotiations. cheryl: meanwhile president trump has said that he may cancel his scheduled meeting with russian president vladimir putin at clash that happened over juik rain and russia. in an interview with the washington post, the president said, maybe we won't have that meeting, i don't like that aggression. lauren: capturing 24 men off of the coast of crimea, moscow claims they were illegally in russian waters. g20 summit begins friday, special reports from liz claman and blake berman during time in buenos aires. cheryl: president trump is threatening to cut government subsidies including tax breaks

little bit happy with performance, mr. trump said. he blamed recent selloff on the fed's rate hikes, has prevented economy from overheating. lauren: we will talk about all of this with our guests in a bit. second estimate for a gdp for the third quarter, an hour before the market opens, gdp to come at 3 and a half percent, that's unchanged from the prior reading. cheryl: new home sales for october also be released today, sales expected to rise slightly from september to 575,000 but those rates from the fed certainly put a damper on the housing market. lauren: housing boom has slowed. big tech making big connections with the healthcare industry. cheryl: very interesting story, tracee carrasco has that and other headlines making news, tracee. >> good morning, latest effort to push into the healthcare entry, wall street journal report that is am done is offering new software, can scan

peter navarro against free-traders like steve mnuchin, john, wealth management, good morning. >> good morning. lauren: first of all, what are the expectations at g20 this weekend? >> well, my hope is that they come to some resolution because it's been massive overhang on the market but my experience has told me let's wait to see what the outcome actually is. lauren: finish your thought. >> we urge investors don't buy the hope but don't sell the fear on headline for china trade, you have two very hardline leaders between trump and xi and, you know, the u.s. has agenda they want to hammer out here, let's see how much the chinese are willing to give. lauren: seems that's exactly what investors are doing, selling the fear and buying the hope, every single headline that's moving the market which brings me to this next one, reuters is reporting chinese enjoy warned that if hardliners in the trump administration like
peter navarro prevail over free-traders, they'll be consequences, what do you make of that because yesterday the white house put out kudlow who is a free-trader to kind of make investors hopeful, if you will, that we might have a deal and as far as i can tell, peter navarro isn't even attending the g20, what do you make of the strategy? >> china is doing exactly what the u.s. is doing, xi and trump are sending out team and coming up with draw a line in the sand attitude and we will go in there with a very hard line, both are playing public opinion and let's see what happens. to see, the u.s. wants the chinese to show some kind of restraint or give on protecting u.s. patent rights, that's the biggest issue in my opinion that the u.s., the government is trying to protect u.s. company interest in china because patents have been ripped off for so long and they can't compete. so i think that if the u.s.
government sees china, puts emphasis on protecting u.s. patent rights, they will maybe not eliminate tariffs but claw back on them. lauren: we want something and we want something in writing. putting numbers on potential outcomes here, they say the best case scenario and they are only giving 10% chance, john, china buys more stuff from us and opens up markets, only 10% of that best case scenario but that doesn't mention all of the items that you outlined that you mentioned. >> good luck, the president threw out the $220 billion on potential tariffs on china that was reached in august, basically, you know, all of the gloves were off and the market has nothing to wrap its head around in terms of the dollar amount, so to be helpful, if the
government came out and said we are going to impose 200 million or go back so at least the market wraps its head around some figure. lauren: john, thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. cheryl: let's take a look at how u.s. futures are fairing this morning, positive start to your day, dow up 60 in premarket, s&p 4 and 3 quarters, nasdaq 13 and a quarter. new list of demands as some of them say they will cross the border no matter what. >> do you plan at least to go legally or illegally to cross? >> any way is the same. >> they are keeping here with hopes. cheryl: we will go to tijuana with the latest on the border. remember when tim cook donated ipad to low-income school in idaho, now schools are complaining about their gifts, you're watching fbn:am

cut gm subsidies and electric cars. should the president be involved? that's the question here, is the president -- can he really do anything when it comes to the business and more importantly the tax laws that are in the books to subsidize those people, those american that is buy electric cars? >> good morning, thank you for having me on, the short answer no, they can't do very much. a lot of the subsidies were put in laws with congress, why are they in place for massive corporation like gm that has access to millions in capital. i think that's sort of the bigger issue the government should be looking at. cheryl: i want you to listen to what larry kudlow had to say, he addressed the issue, he was breaking at afternoon briefing at the white house and these are fighting words from him.
take a listen. >> he believes as frankly the prime minister of canada trudeau believes that the usmca deal was a great help to the automobile industry and to auto workers and gm comes right after the deal. so there's great disappointment there. cheryl: look, the government does a lot to help automakers and that was part of the trade negotiations especially with north america, thanks a lot. they can be angry, but, again, is it really height for them to step in at this point? >> well, they certainly -- i can understand they are angry, as gm shareholder you want what's best for shareholders, if they are negotiating massive trade deal, everybody knows nafta and the new nafta, mca agreement does have to do with car manufacturing industry. they should be upset.
but i think that they need to go back and figure out and wait, why are we so involved, is there a way to pull that back and let the market decide? cheryl: we did bail them out with $50 billion and i think we all remember that. at the same time, let's talk about the president's rhetoric here. we have seen this play out before with him, he went after amazon, they were taking advantage of the u.s. postal service, i'm not sure anything came out of that, he goes after harley davidson because they decide today ship production, they are dealing with tariff concerns and slowing sales in the u.s. go do you think gm gets away with this and moves forward and does business as usual? >> unless you will get a law changing in congress and very unlikely with the split, this will sort of go away but this is
the president mo, if i were sitting in his chair i would not be happy with gm either because those were big ugly headlines, gm cutting 15,000 jobs, that's not the messaging he wants in this economy right now. cheryl: tom, we will certainly keep talking about this until we get a decision, tom, appreciate it. >> thank you. lauren: jay powell still a punching back for president trump, trump telling washington post he's not little bit happy with powell's performance, does this public criticism impacts the fed's decisions, craig, chief economist and joins us now, hey, craig, good morning. >> hey, good morning. lauren: you think the fed is listening to or influenced by the president? >> you know i don't think they are listening too much to him, obviously they pay attention, they will address it but one of their main objectives and has been since 1951 to remain independent and not persuaded by
politics and so that's critical to them, it's a primary importance and i don't think it will affect their decision. lauren: donald trump told the washington post this, quote, i'm doing deals and not being accommodated by the fed, they are making a mistake because i have a gut and my gut tells me more sometimes than anyone else's brain can ever tell me. unpack that a little bit for me? those are strange comments coming from the commander in chief. >> right, the president thinks that his gut is telling him the right thing versus the academic model that is the fed relies on and the president has to remember that the fed has dual mandate to maintain the lowest unemployment possible with sustainable prices or stable price growth and that's their mandate, if he wants to change mandate you can do that but as long as that's their mandate, unemployment at 3.7%, inflation at 2%, they are achieving
mandate and they want to get rates up a little bit and that's why they are hiking. lauren: if the economy slows because of trade dispute that we are engaged and other reasons that the economy slows, they do have something left, amo left to boost the economy if they need to. >> exactly. i think the president is doing disservice if he wants low rates, he's forcing fed into a corner, if there was a meeting that they shouldn't hike, this would be it, if you are seeing weakness, inflation weaker than expected, if you look at stocks are down 6% since last hike, inflation expectations are lowest of the year, this is the meeting that they ought to not hike but they want to become less transparent, the president is putting them in a position where they have to or else the market that they are being persuaded by political pressures. lauren: a lot of people are saying that, craig, the fed wants to transition their strategy to be reactionary and less-forward thinking so you're
saying don't hike as expected in the meeting just a couple of days from now, we will see what they do, we will hold you to that. >> this would be the best meeting to do that but they're not going to be able to do that because of what the president has done. lauren: you're dialing back a little bit for us. >> yes. lauren: good to see you. >> have a great day. cheryl: all right, well, google employees are up in arms over a dragon fly. lauren: tracee carrasco joins us with more on that. tracee: are not happy with reported plans to restart operations in china, at least 10 employees including managers, directors -- managers, the workers called a censored search engine for the chinese market, that enables a surveillance, google has said to be developing a china-specific censored

very cute. cheryl: very cute. let's move to another story we have been following for you here at fox, gridlock in congress over funding for president trump's proposed border wall and the president is not ruling out a partial government shutdown if he doesn't get the 5 billion he wants to build the wall, so far senate democrats are only supporting a bipartisan $1.6 billion deal that was agree today earlier this year. >> if there's any shutdown it's on president trump's back, first, left to our own devices to senate and house can come to an agreement, second, the dem -- the republicans are in control of the presidency, the house and the senate are shut down is on their backs. stick to the 1.6 billion. cheryl: is there appetite for shutdown on either side? let's bring in attorney jena ellis and rochelle. rochelle, politics side to you first, is there appetite to shut
the government. several department to have funding, including homeland security, is anybody willing especially on the democratic side to get in the way of frankly keeping the government running? >> look, we already know that the president would love to see a shutdown, he said so in february that he would love to see shutdown over immigration, what republicans fail today remember that in 2013 the democrats did put forth immigration bill, $40 billion which would have provided 40,000 additional border agents at the border. it would have also extended 700 miles and extended more than security measures, so democrats have been on board and republicans during that time in 2013 they said absolutely not and i think this $5 billion that republicans are offering up that's supposed to span over 3 years, to put a pacifer to keep in president's mouth and they know they cannot stand more
reckless spending. cheryl: i don't know ant reckless spending, a lot has been good for the economy i do know that. you've got actually 10.7 million right now illegal immigrants in the united states, that's actually down and the one thing that seems to be agreed upon and that's why -- we do need border security, listen to what senator lindsey graham had to say about that. >> everything concerning about the caravan is coming through, if you don't see a a problem on méxico and united states, you hate trump too much. secure the border is bottom line to the president. cheryl: 1.6 billion is the bipartisan number, do you think we can secure borders with that, maybe not a wall but more security if that money is spent correctly? >> but the wall is what president trump has said and
campaigned on and last major campaign promise that he's going to seek to fulfill and i think that she should conservatives and particularly his base who have supported him expect a wall and i think that he's prepared to require congress to fund it and so really especially before the democrats take control of the house, the political reality is he's going to have to force the issue now and so he's smart to do that. cheryl: do you think president trump will shut down the government over wall funding, do you think that's going to happen? >> absolutely, i think he's proven that with government shutdown earlier this year and i think that for his negotiating ability holding that to congress and saying, listen, this is something that you will do regardless -- cheryl: i'm not so sure, rochelle, respond to that, they need democrats on board, they don't have to get anything to the president's desk. >> as schumer said, the republicans right now are in control, so it is really on the backs of them to get this done
and like, you know, this whole immigration battle is over hispanics and mexicans coming into the country illegally but president trump said that this was in response to drugs coming into the country and if we look at what happened just 2 days ago in san luís arizona, tunnel found drugs, cash being smuggled through tunnel. this is a 20th century solution, border wall, 21st century problem. cheryl: no, again, i think we can say it's pretty bipartisan that the border does need to secure and how we do it and pay for it -- >> and it's 25 billion and we are giving 1.6, what is that going to do? >> the wall isn't the only solution but it's a large part. just the wall itself is not going to be the permanent solution but that's a huge part of that and that's, again, what president trump campaigned on.
