6:07 am
adjusted, majority of which were men. the story reported by the new york times first and confirmed by the company in a vlog post, this is very interesting given what google is facing, the tech industry has a history of underpaying women and, in fact, the labor department has been investigating whether google systemically underpays women, it's been pseudoby former employees that claim they were paid less than men with the same qualifications and then thousands of google employees protested the way last year that the company handled sexual harassment claims, all that pointed out in new york times story, one issue that the company talks about in the vlog postsomething called leveling, human resources term, but essentially employees assign pay grade for qualifications, something that women at the company at least a few have claimed that they had experience, lower level when they came into the company. here is what google had to say
6:08 am
in the vlog post, leveling performance ratings and impact pay, this year we were undertaking a comprehensive review of the processes to make sure outcomes are fair and equitable for all employees, this is google's lead for industry. women are just wildly underrepresented. look at the statistics, 31% at employees at google are women, 31%, 69% are men. if you look at leadership that falls close to just one quarter of the employees there. it's the same thing assay apple where if you look at technology at apple, less than one quarter are women, women represent half the u.s. workforce, maria, more women need to get tech jobs, science jobs, are we educating women in the country to take those positions. maria: good question. carlos goshn could soon be released from jail, cheryl casone with details, cheryl. cheryl: a court there did

6:18 am
say, well, you know, can't deal with me being a woman. i'm a woman and i completely disagree with most of your policies and i think that part of the criticism firmly in my opinion is to be better, you know what, if you're going to push a new green new deal you're not doing any favors to democrats because it's so ridiculous and so economically and financially stupid, so be better, yeah, maybe we are -- maybe women have to -- maybe we do need to be smarter, but, again, she's not making any effort and then expecting people to just ignore stupidity because, o i'm a woman and she's going to accuse you of being a sexist. maria: she got real criticism from the former head of green tea basically saying what the green deal will do to the world and basically going to cause deaths and cause people to go

6:31 am
european markets are mixed, take a look at the european indices in realtime. cac quarante is up 10 and dax in germany lower by 12. in asia overnight, mixed performance it is report. take a look at you see neighboringia average is down a fraction, the hang seng and shanghai down a fraction. >> earnings per share of adjusted basis 153, estimate was 152 so perhaps very slight beat to target but 3 of four quarters but bet on revenue much on line as expected, 22.98 billion. now target already released their november and december sales numbers over the holiday period early, they did that in january, same-store sales were
6:32 am
up 5.7%, so we will dig into more of what they are saying, maria, we will get back with you on more facts from target. maria: more important numbers to look at because that gives you a sense of what's going on within the stores obviously, joining us right now to go through numbers burt, good to have you on the program. the numbers look better than expected even penny a share. >> units are up, dollars are still up slightly and you referenced plus 5.5% store compares. maria: let's talk about that, the comp sales 5.3%. estimate was 5.1%. >> minus 5, you mentioned elle brands, so target really good year and a lot of momentum going
6:33 am
forward especially today investor's day for them. >> the investment target is making over the past 2 years be in stores and commerce has been enormous but that's been a challenge, the compressed market, investors haven't like that, we are starting to see that pay off a little bit in terms of revenue boost and even in the bottom line number? >> they have invested technology as you have referenced, brian, better fashion, more foot traffic, sustainable leader nationally in solar and our survey worked particularly in the high-tech state show that 23 to 35% of consumers were switching majority shopping to solar leaders and target is really a quote, unquote eclipse to everybody on solar. >> when you look at the overall retail landscape people like target have been able to compete and wal-mart also with amazon, seems like the people winning in
6:34 am
e-commerce and innovating are the ones that if you're seeing stocks do well is that what you expect to continue to drive in retail stock going forward because the definite bifurcation with department stores and discount retailers? >> the other thing is brian corn isle and target board improved leadership team more diverse leadership team of probably any major retailer anywhere in the world with diversity of thinking and better leadership from the stores, the buying merchandising creates much better results and much stronger consumer connection. maria: forecast is pretty good here, forecast for first quarter, let's get back to ashley webster. >> yes, year ahead is so much in line, maria, certainly on the earning side, traffic was up 4 and a half percent and the digital sales, the online
6:35 am
business up 31%, you know, this is a company who has revamped the supply line, they do same-day delivery in some locations and opened smaller stores in college town and online pickup and delivery has started to pay dividends and take on wal-mart and amazon but up 31%, i'm sure burt is impressed with that. dagen: sales were up 36%, 5.3% in the fourth quarter is overall comp sales, same-store sales were up 2.9% in the third quarter, i mean, the fourth quarter, excuse me. best comp sales in a decade. incredibly turnaround after it was flat on its back after data
6:36 am
theft. >> alberto gonzález inner 07 and the one 8 years later and as you and ashley referenced target was dead leadership for about 15 years, the last two of ceo's so really dynamic team especially facing a consumer that's more debt constraint than ever before and as lindsey referenced a lot of competition, target is still winning, the real credit to overall team from the stores and the corporate offices. maria: stock is up 3 and a quarter percent. does this tell us about broader retail environment, tell us where you're seeing strength and weakness right now. it's bifurcated still, right? >> still bifurcated and we are still seeing price impact as you referenced earlier, wal-mart, cosco, bj's also especially the discounters, burlington, olives. dagen: let's talk about the other retailers, if you look at the other economies you say
6:37 am
discounters are doing well, the gallup poll on american's optimism on personal finances, it's climb today -- climbed to levels not seen in years, better off at this time next year, why is it the discounters, higher-end retailers can't get it right in terms of digital, is that what's going on rather than reflection of the overall economy? >> really important points you're bringing up, dagen, in terms of consumer confidence and the disconnect and what we are seeing lack of investment. much more digital in south korea and across asia and those stores are doing better, the london store, harvey nicoles doing extremely well, that's the big miss for u.s. merchandising, online, retail, but they haven't digitized the stores to make them exciting for student
6:38 am
shoppers and people entering the workforce for the first time, but you're right, consumer trends in terms of the gallup poll provides some good news in overall tough retail ice age over the last few years. >> 31% online sales is that impressive? wal-mart is more in the 40's, i look at these numbers, is target doing better in terms of catching up or lagging. dagen: what have you done lately, 31%? just kidding. >> a combination of the two, brian, target online sales trailing 12 months, we are up 1.5 billion, the sales 4.6, total 6% total, when america told online sales about 12, target to your point is halfway where it should be the momentum is going in the right direction. maria: burt, great analysis.

talk to your doctor about chantix. maria: welcome back. good tuesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is tuesday, march 5th. your top stories right now, 7:0. retail earnings in he focus this morning, target reporting better than expected results for the holiday quarter, the earnings guidance coming in above forecast. the comp store sales better than expected and the stock is up better than 5% right now on target. we are waiting on kohl's. we will bring you those numbers as soon as they hit the wires. we are expecting kohl's to report earnings of $2.18 a share on revenue of $6.58 billion for the quarter. broader markets this morning are hire. the indices are adding on today
7:01 am
to what was a really volatile session yesterday, although the markets ended lower yesterday, wild session. bees this morning the dow industrials up 51 points, s&p 500 up 4 points and the nasdaq up 10 and three quarters. take a look at the reversal yesterday. the was up strongly for much of the day and midday complete reversal, dow industrials finishing down 207 points, three quarters of 1%. s&p was down 10, nasdaq yesterday down 16 down 17 point. fq100 is up 18 points, a quarter of a percent. the cac in paris and dax index in germany both lower by a fraction. the breaking news is hitting right now, kohl's coming up better than expected on earnings, $2.24 a share, versus $2.18 a share. ashley webster is looking at the numbers. revenue is a miss. >> a beat six cents. revenue a little shy, coming in at $6.54 billion.
7:02 am
the comp numbers for the fourth quarter, up 1%, not exactly going gangbusters. the outlook for 2019 comp sales, 0 to 2%. now, kohl's of course is really trying to strengthen its relationship with amazon, using it as a pick-up center, driving traffic into the stores. thahasthat has helped a little . they've been trying also to expand their fulfillment centers on the e-commerce side. a beat on the earnings, a miss on the revenue and, again, the comp store outlook for 2019, the comparable sales outlook, 0 to 2%. so interesting to see how this plays out. the debt reduction expected to increase the annual interest. their selling, general and admin expenses have been growing each quarter which has hurt their profitability as they try to adapt to the new retail landscape. a miss on revenue is not going to help.
7:03 am
maria: the stock is surging. stock is up 4% on these numbers even though we've got a revenue miss. lindsey bell, your reaction? >> i think this was one of those things where it was better than bad expectations. this is a stock that was flat going into the report. maria: better than lowered estimates. >> exactly. for the outlook especially. the retail index was up over 10% on a year-to-date basis. this was a stock that was flat. they struggled with the online presence. they're making investments. they're dealing with higher wages, increased shipping costs, so there's a lot that is going on for kohl's and they haven't benefited like a target that we talked about earlier and some of the other discount retailers that have really done well. maria: the comp store sales here, up 1.7%, is that the way you're reading it, fourth quarter comp sales increased 1%. let's be clear on what the comp store sales are versus the same store sales, because that was two different numbers for target. you said earlier -- >> so the comp store sales
7:04 am
include digital sales, where same store sales is for physical stores. maria: just brick and mortar. >> brick and mortar. >> kohl's is an interesting story because for the past several years they've been trying some very new things to try to break out of the dying retail rut and so i think it's interesting here the projected comp sales, little bit lower than you'd expect but they've got a lot of new initiatives going on including expansion intuse the grocery business many they're taking a lot of their footprint, reducing it, bringing grocery in there. i think investors might be excited about that because it creates a more holistic shopping environment. dagen: is that a fight you want to take on in this environment, though, thinking that grocery is going to be the key to success, given -- i'm just curious. >> can i add onto that? who is kohl's big partner right now? amazon. who is interested in getting into groceries? amazon. i don't think it's a coincidence. inches you'll see amazon and kohl's grocery stores going
7:05 am
forward i think investors get excited about kohl's. maria: it's been surging in the past five minutes. >> this has been a trend across retailers. you've seen good earnings. guidance has been better than fear. better than fear gets you a 5% % pop in your stock, especially when your stock is flat, trading deep discount to five year average. department store sec stor secton weak. we saw similar reaction to macy's when they reported earnings last week. they announced cost cutting ya testifies, restructuring that helped them. dagen: looks like investors were excited they had any comp sales. >> that wasn't negative. dagen: 1.7% for the year in comp sales growth, 1.7 compared to other ones, but again, it's expectations. maria: you had a miss on revenue and yet the stock is up 5%. look, obviously we had a very good retail environment.
7:06 am
we've been seeing better and better numbers. the economy doing well. ashley webster, thank you so much for those numbers. we'll come back to you as news develops. one of the reasons we saw this better tone to the economy is the tax cut plan last year but will that change? because we are talking about new proposals to tax the wealthy once again. house democrat peter difazzio pioneering a financial services tax to discourage high frequency trading he says. he's got a new he co-sponso co-d it is alexandria ocasio-cortez. they say it could bring in $777 billion in revenue over the next 10 years according to a joint committee on taxation. joining us right now is congressman andy b a arr. tell us about this wall street tax. >> a lot of people attribute the volatility in the markets in december to uncertainty around trade, maybe monetary normalization, other factors, but really if you think about it, this new socialist mindset
7:07 am
with the new house majority may be one of the reasons why you saw so much market volatility in december. now, fortunately we're seeing good growth numbers, strong growth, capital expenditures, business investment continues to move forward, predominantly because of tax cuts, because of corporate tax reductions, exons because of the expensing provisions and the financial sector deregulation, legislation encouraging more capital formation, encouraging more businesses to access affordable capital and invest in their businesses. what you're seeing here with this proposal to impose a new tax on financial transactions is exactly in step with the democrats' new lurch towards socialism. you can't have capitalism without capital and this is a direct punishment of capital formation. maria: that's incredible. what are you doing about all of these new programs on the left? you're colleagues want to change a lot of what your colleagues on
7:08 am
the right have put in place. >> part of this also, part of what's animating these tax increase proposals, the he rever sals of progress -- reversals of progress, they're proposing huge new spending. we're concerned about the national debt. you're talking about the green new deal which would add $93 trillion in new spending, new costs to the federal government. a government takeover of healthcare system, $30 trillion over 10 years. so they're trying to figure out a way to pay for it a and the way they think they can pay for it is to punish success. dagen: republicans don't have a leg to stand on for this. president bush never met a spending bill he didn't like. the debt has continued to soar. it's north of $22 trillion as we've talked about on the show, as maria pointed out. you don't have any legs to stand out. now you really quite frankly opened the door to these people on the left and say, well, if the republicans are going to spend on this, then we're going to spend on that and everybody's going to benefit from our
7:09 am
socialist ideas. >> well, it's a fair criticism and certainly both parties share blame on this. but remember, when the last time nancy pelosi was speaker of the house, domestic discretionary spending was around 9% as a percent of gdp. domestic discretionary spending when nancy pelosi took the gavel back was down to 6%. so republicans when we were in charge actually did a pretty good job on discretionary spending. the reason why the deficit continues to be at a trillion dollars a year, right now, is because of unreformed mandatory spending. don't forget what republicans did in the last congress, we voted for the most significant historic entitlement reform in american history that failed by one vote in the senate. maria: whose idea was it to do this dollar for dollar, do a dollar increase in defense spending, you get a dollar increase in discretionary spending. that's one of the issues. >> that is one of the issues. we need to disconnect those two.
7:10 am
we're fighting to preserve the disconnect between defense spending which frankly we're spending less as a percentage of the economy on defense now than we did 10 years ago. and the threats are continuing to grow. dagen: in a couple of years you're going to be spending -- we as a nation are going to be spending more on the interest on the debt than we spend on national defense. maria: we'll probably see the wall street tax materialize. >> that's why the debt is a national security issue. >> wall street tax, we started talking about aoc's mob moving from new york city to florida because of high taxes. maria: $600. >> there's a similar dynamic with these financial transaction taxes. first of all, we have very little evidence it does anything about high frequency trading. we know in places where it's been implemented it moved capital transactions out of that country. same thing. >> it hurts the consumer at the end of the day as well. you're aiming for the high frequency traders but the consumer, we don't have that many lower income people
7:11 am
invested in the stock market but this also makes it much more difficult for them to get involved in the stock market and see their capital gains grow. maria: i like what you said, brian, it doesn't do anything for high frequency trading. >> there's no evidence is solves that problem. >> in the united states, we enjoy the deepest, most liquid competitive capital markets on the planet. that helps everyday consumers. this punishes liquid at this, impairs liquid aity. this makes u.s. capital markets less competitive. that hurts growth, that hurts jobs. maria:y lon.maria: ilhan omar,t that, congresswoman omar suggested pro israel groups are promoting allegiance to a foreign country alexandria ocasio-cortez, i she is defendig her. ocasio-cortez writes, i'm curious if representative vargas
7:12 am
will further explain his stance here that it's unacceptable to question foreign policy. many have said the discussion is fair and merited. is this stance a departure from that. 11 jewish groups are calling for nancy pelosi to remove omar from the committee. because they're coming up with a resolution condemning it, that doesn't change anything. she's still on foreign affairs. >> correct, this is an attempt for democrats to cover up what's really going on which is a rise of anti-semitism, not just in the world generally, but in the democratic party here in the united states. maria: in the congress. >> and in the congress. and absolutely representative omar should be removed from the foreign affairs committee. i just returned from israel. i was in israel a week before last and the israelis, our number one strategic ally in the middle east, imagine the middle east, that dark part of the world without ani an ally like israel. they're questioning what's going on in the united states, what's
7:13 am
going on with anti-semitism in the democratic party. we need to stand firm. there is bipartisan support for removing representative omar from the foreign affairs committee. anti-semitism has no place in our country, no place in the world, and certainly no place in the congress. maria: you're colleagues when steve king said something stupid he was relieved of all of his committee assignments. >> that's right. that's right. we need to hold all our members to a high standard, particularly in the foreign affairs committee. we're dealing with important issues. we need to stand with israel. israel is an important counterweight to iran and other terrorist proxies in the middle east. dagen: nancy pelosi is on the cover of rolling stone with congresswoman omar and ocasio-cortez and another female congresswoman. maria: yeah, i know. >> it is shameful. maria: congressman, thanks for joining us. really appreciate it. andy barr. we'll be right back. ♪

and increase lending. joining us right now is global chairman, mark weinberger. thank you for joining us. i know you're on your way to beijing in a couple weeks. what's your take on how the economy's doing there right now and its impact on the u.s.? >> we've been really bullish on china. we continue to grow double digits for the last several years in china. in the long-term it's going to be a great market. it's definitely hitting slowness due to a lot of the reforms they put in place. we're seeing more consumption led growth as opposed to investment led growth. that's not as stable. the country is more front and center. the private sector continues to do well. it is slowing. >> the point you make about consumption versus production given economy is really important. the communist party wants to have their hands on the lever of the economy. you can't do that when it's a consumer driven economy. it's much harder control. >> it's not as directly
7:24 am
straight-up. you can't control it. the other element is really china is part of the issue here. they did some positive things. they came in to control some of the debt, tightened up some of the lending. we're going to see that open up again. they have a lot of levers they can pull to get the economy growing by freeing that up through state owned enterprises. you may see some reforms reverse. >> back to here in the the us, you're seeing some mixed economic data points. the picture is in the same when we think about the global slowdown picture, brexit is on the table. we don't know what's going to happen with the china trade deal. we're going to probably get noise on that over the next month or so. what are you telling your customers right now, how to operate in this type of uncertain environment. maria: mo mohammed lio nsaid e zero said will get lucky to get 1% growth this year. >> we're seeing the u.s. grew 2.9% last year, 3.1% if you look
7:25 am
at fourth quarter to fourth quarter. maria: year over year. >> it' it's projected 2.5%. the he global economy was reduced from 3.7 to 3.5. we're seeing india growing over 7%, china closer to 6%. i think we were overly optimistic last year when we saw the g-20 all growing. we're overly pessimistic now. u.s. investment, since tax reform, we've had $3 trillion of investment last year, the fastest growth in 11 years. 3.2% earnings increase which is putting more money in people's pockets and creating 2.6 million jobs over the last year. we're seeing inflation tame. we're seeing a very strong u.s. economy right now with a lot of opportunity. maria: i'm glad you looked at the 10-year period. this is actually a historic day for the markets today. this is the 10 years from the market bottom that took place on march 9t ninth ninth of 2009. markets up 300% in the last 10 years. it's ban real growth spurt from
7:26 am
the bottom. >> it has been. especially with the deregulation and the tax reform. i've always said this. i don't look at tax reform, in never did as a stimulus. i'm not saying it should be used to grow the economy in a particular quarter. we haven't seen the major benefits from tax reform. the share buybacks come first. you could argue good or bad, share buybacks. it's easy to do, it's quick. to change your supply chain which is what the tax reform was aimed at to put more marginal dollars back in the united states, to invest in long-term cap ex, that takes longer. that takes quarters to put that together. you need a business plan. we're working with businesses all over the world that are modeling on increased investment in the united states. that has result in higher wages, higher capital expenditures and eventually increase productivity. that's going to take another or two to field that. are you saying that we don't have a recession on the horizon because of that very thing, because you've got a year or two of a long runway from this
7:27 am
corporate tax reform, that the u.s. economy's in this incred illy solid -- incredibly solid position. >> i believe the stimulus from tax refor rewill run off. the change in the dynamic has changed for the next several years. that is a positive. there's other factors that could lead to a recession. that's a harder question to answer. dagen: people are looking at the calendar saying you know what, we're due for a recession which seems a little ridiculous. maria: i don't like looking at it that way. dagen: a lot of people do. maria: they're saying this is long in the tooth, it's 10 years. >> corporations are putting known work. wages are increasing the last four months over 3%. we're just starting to see that. cap ex just starting to increase in the latter stages of 2018. this could be -- maybe there are legs. >> in the fourth quarter gdp growth as we saw, 0.7, 0.69% of
7:28 am
the gdp growth was attributable to business cap ex investment. that's a huge component of growth. maria: we've been seeing that. >> we won't see the returns on that until productivity goes up. that's going to take another several quarters. so i think your point is spot-on. i do not believe we're going to see a recession at least not for the u.s. standpoint. europe is a tougher situation with brexit, you've got the german situation with the change in control, the italy situation. maria: can things change that quickly that here we are in 2019, expecting 3%. kevin hassett was on the other day, he said 3.2% growth for 2019. are we going to see two quarters of negative growth in 2020. >> we saw five quarters in a row of double digit earnings growth for businesses, we've never had a recession when we have growth in businesses. certainly if the trade war continues to escalate -- we hope it's going to deescalate. that will help a lot.

7:36 am
is that what you found in europe? >> we've been out around the world making sure everybody had the same information, that countries understand the risk of putting this huawei technology into their i.t. systems. we can't forget these systems were designed by -- with the express work alongside the chinese p.l.a., their military in china, they are creating a real risk for these countries and their systems, the security of their people. if a country adopts this and puts it in some of their critical information systems, we won't be able to share information with them, we won't be able to work alongside them. maria: big news from secretary pompeo on that. joining me right now is general jacjack keane. thank you so much for joining us. what do you make of all this, general? the company, huawei, is opening this cyber security lab in brussels, the heart of the european union. europe is with huawei, they're using their telecom equipment. how do you see this story?
7:37 am
>> what's at stake here obviously is the 5g global wireless network system that's going to replace 4g. europe is china's second largest market other than china itself which is their number one market. and they're going after this because nobody has really ever pushed back on them before. the united states has got the goods on china. china is the most prolific cyber hacker in the world and what they're doing is acquiring data and data for what? data for military technology, intelligence, and personal data. why do they do that? because they want to be able to advance their own geopolitical goals and they want influence and control and they recognize what a 5g will give them is a dominant position in terms of information gathering from one country to another. and the united states clearly national security interests are at stake because these are our allies and we want to obviously share information and do
7:38 am
business with them, but they're tied to a system that's providing information to the chinese government. that's going to tie our hands. of course, huawei stands right in front of us, they roll out their ceo at the mobile world congress and he stands up there and just like they've done time and time again, they lie right to a world audience. maria: we had andy purdy on last week and he was basically saying, look, there have been no cyber intrusions, no cyber issues with huawei and i thought what, i just looked at a list of companies that have sued you and you've settled with and we know that the senate has come out with a report about these confucius centers. this morning the news is that chinese hackers targeted more than two dozen universities in the united states and around the globe as the scheme to steal research about maritime technology being developed by the military, meanwhile the founder of huawei, he said the company has never and will never share information with the
7:39 am
chinese government. so how does that work? this is a chinese state company, andy purdy, the company's chief security officer was with me last week and he says huawei needs to be more transparent to address technology risks. watch this. got to get your reaction, general. >> have you ever given any information to the chinese government in any way, shape or form? >> for the past 30 years, we have never done that and the next 30 years to come we will never do that. >> there are at least five nations they the world that can virtually implant malicious functionality in products. we need to do a better job of coming up with objective and transparent mechanisms to address those risks. we support addressing those risks and look forward to working with the u.s. government and other governments we've been working with, the u.k., germany and others, believe there are ways despite what the warnings from the u.s. they're among our closest allies, they believe the risk can be addressed. i think the major carriers in the world know that.

maria: i've got an issue with him saying major carriers trust us. i don't know that that's true, major carriers trusting huawei. also, how do you have this separation with chinese government when you've got the communist party on your board of directors, general. >> there is no separation. the company answers to the chinese government and they clearly provide data to assist the chinese government and it is the communist chinese party, to be clear, in terms of what we're talking about here. and that's -- these statements on the surface are objec an obs. they are the most prolific hackers in the world. i applaud this administration. the previous administration was asleep at the switch, so-to-speak, as china is advancing to compete and dominate the 5g, global mobile network system. this administration is recognizing the danger and the threat that that presents to us and that's why they're out there educating nations about it so
7:41 am
they clearly understand what the risks are here. maria: general, this is like economic war fare. that's also military issues. they're setting up islands in the south china sea. they're putting military bases on those islands, they're putting military bases across the world. give us in your sense what the military risk is, the national security risk is as a result of what china has been doing. >> well, china clearly wants to dominate and control the asia pacific region, militaryizing the south china see is certainly about that, intimidating allies in the region is part of the flay bricfabric of the story. they're the fastest growing military in the world as we speak today. they have more combat ships in the chinese navy than the united states navy has. they have dominance in offensive missiles and other specialty areas which make our ships and also our bases in the pacific
7:42 am
very vulnerable. they're expanding, a base in the middle east, 60% of their oil comes out of the middle east and they don't want that tied up by the united states in event there was a conflict. they're also interested in pakistan, they're running the r port at panama. they are expanding globally because of geopolitical influence and control that they want. maria: i mean, i know that the u.s. military and the u.s. is the largest and strongest military across the world but is it only a matter of time before china overtakes? they've got 1.4 billion people. we've got 300 million people. is this just slowing them down? real quick, general. >> well, we have to work against them comprehensively with our allies. when we're pooled together with our allies, standing against the economic giant and the growing menace of its military capacity, we can be okay.
7:43 am
maria: yeah. >> we've got to stitch that together and really tie it up, much tighter than what we're doing right now. i think secretary pompeo is trying to do yowman work. maria: good to see you. thank you so much. coming up, a major change for volvo, we'll tell you why the company is limiting its cars' top speeds, they're instituting a speed limit. gaming milestone, millions sign up fo for apex legends. the incredible number. back in a minute. ♪ crazy girl, you know that i love you. ♪ i wouldn't dream of going nowhere. ♪ my dream car.

8:06 am
republican administration, democrat administration chose to not try to do anything about it. >> wow. >> this administration, takes position i think rightly i am a free trader, that if we don't do something now, pretty soon we won't be able to do anything. their economy is predicted by some as large as ours in 2025. of the we've got some advancing right now that we can put real pressure on them showing, so -- i hope that this is successful i think in everybody's interest including chinese, if they would abide by the rules, do what they say they are going to do, built you are right. president reagan, my old boss used to say trust but verify there has somebody mechanism. >> i am with you a huge story covering it will every day, deeply, let me bring you back to u.s. governor house democratics attempting to reintroduce a bill shot down two years ago calling it wall

8:08 am
they talk about has a big, big price tag, and a big, big tax increase attached to it. >> governor dagen mcdowell, there are also trying to pull the wool over your average person's eyes they talk about taxes we are going to tax the rich. we are just going to tax wall street we are going to have high frequency trading tax. when plans that have been -- announced by these left-leaning democrats really will involve whether green dream or medicare for all going to involve taxing everybody in this country, including lower income americans. to their eyeballs. >> way that is devastating to legislator income americans truly regressive in many ways. >> when you get into something like this, and so much money, that people have, that is invested is actually invested
8:09 am
in funds invested in things that are note personal trading, that a lot of that trading in these big, big funds is done in this way they move money and slightest uptick downtick can have a very big effect if you are investing hundreds of millions of dollars, so i think it is you are right, that a lot of people who never dreamed this about affects them actually because of the way that they invest which is a smart way to invest if you are not an expert but going to getting caught in this they are going to be their money going to be some money taken in new taxes. >> tax reform act that we passed recently was intended large part to bring capital back to the united states when you talk about this high frequency trading taxes, what you are really doing now is actually encouraging capital to flee the country, again, i mean are you concerned that if we continue to see this move left, that you actually see
8:10 am
businesses kind of about-face and say united states isn't the place to do business, because we punish we punish investment rewarding of investment. >> brian you know better than i. but capital money goes to where it is most welcome. and if we become a country that takes a whack through taxation or through regulation, every form of investment everying that attractings capital we of most attractive company in the world for capital would about the be if we keep chewing away like this. >> lindsey bell here just a question what do you make of this aoc being a key supporter or the one presenting a lot of outlandish bills? is it democratic party pointing to her using her marketability in a huge bass or them making her villain because they are raising taxes? >> what do you make of it?
8:11 am
>> i mean, i think you have to assume that people that are agreeing with her actually really agree with her. and she wants to move the democraticed party as far to left as she possibly can. and there seems to about a real market for that, not only in the grassroots but among elected democrats among people that rush to be for medicare for all rush for green plan in a rush to wealth taxes, rush to any tax anybody can dream of. and, of course, she is proposed a -- a plan that is so unbelievably expensive and then never met a tax she didn't like being. maria: -- it doesn't make any sense you are not getting rid of fossil fuels in 10 years we haven't spoken about this at all two political action committees founded by representatives alexandria

8:14 am
2.9% fourth quarter i mean, like two different worlds has what is your reaction to all of that? >> well, i mean, if i were being asked the same question i would look at -- when i grew up in the american politics, the out parties referred to itself as loyal opposition today this out party from the day trump was inaugurated refers tois as resistance as if a civil war and for a lot of them that is where they are. i mean look at congress. you are going to see in terms of legislation, in this congress primarily constipation not much getting done but in terms of investigations they are going to about not one or two or three they are going to to be guys after investigation after investigation she doesn't do very good job of explaining that, i might add. maria: i wonder how that place in 2020.
