♪ all right taking a look at the futures this is morning start of the week where we stand dow industrials down 150 ponts right now that is our market. impact of boeing shares down about another 9% our top story this hour is the border wall funding showdown. president trump's budget proposal set to be released this morning. in it the president will ask for 8.6 billion dollars of funding of barriers on southern border. on sunday morning future i spoke with wyoming smart about what the president decided on that number.
how does he arrive at 6.8 billion? >> he asked experts where we should be putting our best efforts they've come up with ten specific locations along border and said these are the spots where if we could put barriers it would make a difference in protecting the -- in protecting border. the border is about 2,000 miles and so the president is not asking for the full 2,000 mile he's saying give us ten locations that the experts say are the key locations. that's where he's getting his numbers. >> joining me right now texas congressman and caucus co-chair, dr. brian, good to see you congressman thanks so much for joining us. >> great to be with you maria. lay out the case no president gets everything that he wants right, but this is his proposal, largely about the border, how do you see it? >> you know this case is very easy to lay out. there's a absolute disaster happening at the border right now. they are quarantining 2,000 people because of 276 cases --
76 thousand illegals across border of last month awe're headed it a million to come across by the end of this year, and we hear ms. pelosi saying there's a manufacture crisis that we can't suppress the vote and last week they voted to allow illegal aliens so if you don't want illegal aliens voting so i think the cat is out of the bag the democrats don't make a secret of it anymore. they want a million of illegal aliens to come in, give them the vote and then give them a leg up and every election from here, here on out, and the president is doing exactly the right thing. there's an emergency there. 8.6 billion is not way over the top my goodness. you know this is national security. he wants to repay what he's taken out of the military construction funds he's asking for 3.6 billion there.
i think it is very reasonable maria. >> what about the spending in the face of this 22, trillion debt that country is facing i know discretionary spending expected to be down. but are there other areas that you can identify that you can cut back and spending while you raise money and raise spending for military purposes. >> absolutely. we can find plenty of that. there is -- we have so many entitlement programs right now, it is -- you talk about suppression -- this suppresses work force . question let millions and millions of people coming here illegally and suppresses the wages suppresses jobs for americans. this will be very easy to find, of course, the democrats are not going to agree with that. they want to continue the domestic spending and 22 billion dollar national debt will continue to go up unfortunately we have a -- real good opportunity over the last two years to secure is this
border. and we were unable to get votes i voted for it every single time maria but unfortunately we didn't have that now but it is time to what how we say in texas fish or cut bait but we have to make sure we secure this border. >> you have to prepare for a potential surge the trump administration preparing for increase in crossings at that southern border predicting 180,000 migrant families will cross southern border into the u.s. by may. that's according to the journal congressman. >> well absolutely. as they're on track to have a million crosby the end of this this year. and i've been to that border four times, over the last several months. to see from san diego, california, through southern arizona, and twice into southern border of texas, and it is an absolute disaster down there. and you know, for the democrats to say it is manufactured, you know, you're either ignorant or
you are just simply not telling the truth and i think again i want to say it right out. the in thes want this to be happening. they want -- they keep saying it is -- manufactured is it possible they could continue ignoring this and a tell a complete different story than colleagues on the right? >> yeah. i think so. you know, it is never been more apparent maria the differences between the parties. i think americans are not stupid. they can see the extremist positions that these democrats have taken not just on open borders. but the new -- green new deal -- a socialism, our medical turning our medical industry into a single payer and abolishing insurance, everything that they are proposed is so far out there. i think the american people are going to -- there's going to be a day of reckoning in 2020. >> all right we'll be watching good to see you this morning. thanks so much. >> thank you maria . brian joining us there meanwhile
tesla reversing and automaker keep more stores open and it will also raise prices. plus ceo elon musk with a major deadline today what's the story? >> less than two weeks ago announced that tesla was closing it stores and cutting the price of all of this vehicles by 6%. well the sound that you're hearing is tesla slamming on brakes and throwing this baby in reverse. because in a blogst post and e-mail to employees, tesla is now planning to raise the price of most of its vehicles by 3% and keep more of its stores open thans previously expected. here's the quote from the blog post here's part of what had they dumped overnight. over the past two weeks we have been closing every -- we've been chosely evaluating every single tesla retail location and we have decided to keep significantly more stores open than previously announced. as we continue to evaluate them over the course of several
months, as a result of keeping significantly more stores open tesla will need to raise vehicle price by 3% on average. in another words this is what elon musk says in blog post we'll close about half as many stores but cost savings are therefore only about well half here's the good news that prices only go up after march 18th so if you buy now you get the lower price. and there will be no price hike for the base model 3 which stays at 35,000 dollars. you want to point that out and then all -- all sales by the way will still be onis line you have to go into a store to order the vehicle online like on your phone even. and then today march 11th is the deadline for elon musk to prove to a federal judge that his tweets that he sently did not violate the october settlement with exchange commission we'll see what tesla has to say about that. but i would not expect any severe punishment if anything is handed down. maria. >> yeah. all right thank you dagen
meanwhile a major story this morning developing around boeing after another major crash. boeing new 737 max 8 jet has been groupedded by several airlines and the chinese government. cheryl casone with the details in headline it is now. cheryl. welcome back. >> thank you maria you know the 737 is known as one of the workhorses in the aviation industry boeing, though, is nows i paing intense scrutiny 157 people including 8 americans killed when a max crashed in africa. now unclear what caused that plane to go down just six minutes into flight this is the same boeing model that went into a nose dive back in october killed 189 people. you've got china now grounding all 737 max eight planes ethiopian cayman airlines also have grounded aircraft this is affecting dow and premarket boeing in premarket is down more than %. and that is pressuring the dow
in premarket this morning. now, to this -- venezuela massive power outage has turned deadly. opposition leader juan says at least 17 people have died as hospitals are struggling to assist patients. telecommunication networks also wiped out experts say blackout likely occurred because of a high and high voltage transmission line after years of government neglect. he is calling for a state of emergency there. well a japanese court rejected request from normer nissan guest to attend the board meetings tomorrow. there are reports that his attendants could put pressure on nissan employees. nissan dismissed cohn as chairman following his arrest in november. but he still remains a board member he was released from jail on nine million dollars last week that was the bail maria so he's out. but still in indeed struggling to communicate and to get his message out maria as you know. >> still a board member, and
he's out why would he be able to go to the meeting? >> again another question mark how company handled this scndle and the japanese government is as well. >> cheryl thank you. we'll take a short break when we come back sad and focused this morning jay powell spoke out last night on global economy, and the risk of recession in the u.s. what he said about president trump coming up in that new interview. then breaking up big tech presidential l hopeful elizabeth warren revealed her plan to take on amazon and google among others. she wants to make them much smaller. that's all coming up right here. stay with us. ♪ (butcher) we both know you're not just looking for pork chops. you're searching for something more...
house and author of trump america, newt gingrich with us this morning former reagan advisor and art laugher join us this morning along with author of the coming collapse of china, jordan chang is here. fox news senior joining and saturday night live alum is here as well. plus the ceo of c trip, chinese company this morning joining us as well. we've the got a lot coming up do stay with us. breaking up big tech is where we kick it off right here with a plan from massachusetts senator elizabeth warren. watch. >> giant tech companieses right now are eating up tiny business startups and competing unfairly. look at it this way they run a platform where you buy a coffee maker get it delivered in 48 hours and that's great but in addition to that they're sucking up that information about every
purchase, every sale and every one of the other little businesses that are offer aing their products on amazon, and when a.m. son sees one that's profitable they say -- think they'll go into business against them with extra information. so -- what i'm saying is we have to break these guys apart. you want to run a platform that's fine. you don't get to run a whole bunch of the businesses as well. stop selling app on app store joining kfs with more on all of that wall street journal global economic senator is here along with pollster and president and partners lee carter great to see you this morning. flghts great to be here. >> thanks for joining us this was an important topic because we talk a lot about proif privacy issues with companieses that they have gotten biggers than they have before but you would like to see competition fix the problem and be the the solution rather than elizabeth warren big government ideals.
>> well, but i think what some conservativeses and liberals qowld say is that you might need the government to introduce competition that these guys are becoming so big and so dominant in their market that government has to get involved to, you know, to break them up but there's bipartisan concern the way that they're may behaves ths different than big banks postally coming from left and not the right now we have it from the right and left so they better look out. >> what's different in materials of tech company and the talk of breakup versus bank. >> well i mean i think what one of the things is different is that big tech companies you know, amazon facebook they dominate their market so exclusively. i think -- we have to i think there was more competition in the banking space than there is in the --
>> one thing government can do is -- and i think that this is coming. that they will stop allowing these very large tech companieses to continue to buy up all of these small businesses in niche areases say -- what facebook has done is you buy up all of these -- all of these companies for town and then shut them down so you're buying technology an they control it. i think that -- sooner rather than later you will see that government intervene and prevent anymore even small acquisition by large tech companies because if you look they've turned a blinked eye to growth in companies through ac acquisition just with facebook. and now they're so big and it is kind of dawned on these ding bats down in washington that these companies have gotten too large i think that is something that is going to happen. >> you see -- they all have investment arms as well. i mean, they have enormous funds that are, i mean, amazon has had
investment -- arm and investing in. >> this is what elizabeth warren wases looking at a how products are are doing on its site and goz to get into those markets that is watching. >> but also give to be clear it gives an avenue to -- small businesses across the country to sell their goods through a.m. son so where they wouldn't be able to grow otherwise. >> i think it is an important fact to look at that to grow but also a lot of goals of companies now is to get acquired by amazon and that you know success to a lot of folks. i think we have to be careful how we're going to look at this whole thing. thing i'm worried about is that conservative solution is coming out, and they sound good to a lot of people that is save a little guy. it is a big or narrative on the left and i think that we're going to on right they need plans to address these -- >> dagen point to one where are there's some resident had is preventing further growth through acquisition from some of
these companies. >> well there's no doubt they've become more powerful than ever before. and -- you're hearing you're hear aing this push b.c. on right and left it is interesting to hear conservatives even believe that these companies are too powerful and would like government to step in. >> reversal for conservative so market to total reversal for free market conservative. >> but if a company wants to sell out to macey or amazon and whatever and it is your businesses that my choice that's my decision not elizabeth juan. >> that's right. we've got a developing story request this ethiopia crash, we're going to bring you the headlines on the screen right there. and, of course, boeing is the big story as result of the impact from the 737 jet. we'll talk about that coming up investors are also waiting on u.s. china deal and soring on trump teal an one national security advisor john bolton say otherwise what he told me yesterday coming up. and then going out for donuts

welcome back u.s. china trade i spoke with national security advisor a, ambassador john bolton how enforcement in a deal is critical. >> what is the enforcement action a that could be possible here to make sure that beijing follows up with these promises? >> they're going to be more talks next week. certainly at the highest levels of the government, we're working as hard as we can to pursue the president's -- >> back in place if they fail short -- >> that would be sure that would
be a possibility that's one way of doing it that's one of the options that's out there that's one was reasons honestly look i'm a free trader. but one of the reasons that president i think, was right in imposing tariffs on china, is that it got their attention and i think that's been all to the good. >> now growing skepticism on president trade policies weighing on global businesses according to a pailgd did i international survey research finds that 45% of fatality analyst believe trade policies are cause of any business gloom out there. that's up from last year's 13% joining us right now is path trading partners chief market vat gist in trades.com ahead of research and principle bob, bob good to have you on the program this week an you agree this china deal is important for markets you're with looking at copper as an indicator of where we are. rk yeah as trade deal sort of became both sides talking positively about it you saw a run for copper seven weeks in a row basically straight up and copper not only being important
part of chinese economy but used as currency when they're really up there with that 8, % greet they'll actually trade copper as well as trading currency and other things so it becomes kind of a coal mine for how the deal is going. sm right because copper is an economic indicator from making cars to a home to tell come john. >> so i want to ask you about an area so -- walks through what happens many copper market or any other market for that matter. if a deal gets done in next few weeks versus what happens if it is, if it doesn't what's priced in right now? >> priced in a deal that's for sure why copper has gone over say last ten weeks it has been down two over last three but it has been a strong runoff to lohse it came when you saw that sort of -- talks were canceled larry kudlow denied they were canceled that's
where it made this low but there was a coordinated effort between u.s. and china to speak mostly positively about how the trade talk are going. that's when copper took off so when i see copper slow down, it is almost as if there's radio silence between the two governments. how vulnerable are markets the deal doesn't get done do we see a big selloff or modest move? >> you know what's interesting, to me, the geopolitical disaster of no deal has been priced in. so in other words, there's going to be a deal in the markets opinion. the last few days what we've seen in s&p for example, is a selloff where -- we have 70% of companies who reported guidance last, last earning season report negative guidance that wasn't all a of the companies. but that was about 99 s&p companies i think they need to get that deal sooner rather than later in order for analyst companies also to ratchet their forward guidance back up i think that's the fact. >> switch over to federal reserve because fed chair jay powell on "60 minutes" last i
thought new on cbs he talked about broader economy. watch this. >> we have high levels of employment low level of unemployment wages are moving up. consumer confidence is aside business confidence aside we've seen a built of a slowing but i would say principle risk it our economy -- now seem to be coming from slower growth this china, and europe, and also risk of such as brexit. overarching question is are we headed to a recession? i think growth this year with will be slower than last year it was the highest growth that we've experienced since financial crisis really in more than ten years. this year, i expect that growth will continue to be positive and continue to be at a healthy rate. >> bob in addition to china news this is oh big question for markets right what's going to happen to economy given that weakness in europe and slowdown in china? >> i like jay powell whaing he said is a lot of what you have been saying all morning. he basically said economy in
u.s. is strong and could be strong we are a china deal and even without the length of time it takes to get the deal done i think that was his way of commenting on that. we're going to see slower growth but there's going to be growth. u.s. is doing very, very well the jobs numbers to me were great. take that headline misout everything behind the headline missed was really, really strong was really positive about the jobs number. >> on 20,000 jobs. yeah but look at 12,000 over last few months with wage withs when you looked at labor participation rate steady with unemployment rate drops everything behind that headline number was -- really good which led me to believe that 20,000 number was more about companies not finding people to e hire rather than not wanting to hire -- >> we have an important indicator this morning at 8:308 when retail sales data come out we have a really bad retail sales number out a month ago. what are you expecting to find out today? >> i think there's going to be big revisions on retail sales you look at what we've seen
everyone seemed to do better in term of that holiday sales number, i'm not sure where that came from. i would be really disappointed if we dpght get revision that number in new release. >> a lot of people questioned it. seemed strange you saw -- a lot of positive comments out of the company. outside of black friday. last night in that interview i was dying to see as we move on what you thought about that interview because it was unpress unprecedented in time of not a crisis and interview on "60 minutes." >> maybe a message to president trump, in that interview, that he's got a voice too. >> so in the face of all of this you want to put new money to work this market then sound like you're -- bullish. >> funny we're underinvested we have been all year and part that have reason is because we don't have a deal. and even i think there's going to be a deal i'm not at the table signing it. so until that actually happens, i would rather play catch-up with market. we buy discounted company when is we buy companies so i would
rather continue to use that plan and when we get a deal in place then we play catch-up. >> on commodities? >> yes we're low on copper crude oil those are what we look. we want it will keep stable. >> great to have you on the program thank you so much. joining us there quick break and then dangerous selfie a woman is attacked by a jaguar after crossing over a barrier at the zoo to take a selfie. unreal. and then politics at south by southwest congresswoman making more waves drawing huge crowd and a blasting fdr reagan, capitalism and others -- all next.

a posting struggling donutshop in texas leads to sellout heartwarming story coming up this among and we begin this half alexandria cortez blasting capitalism this weekend and congresswoman on southwest in southwest in austin, texas. >> capitalism isn't to me is an ideology of capital it means that we seek and prioritize prort and accumulation of money above all else and we seek it at any human and environmentals cost and to me that ideology is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed. >> aoc also said that fdr new deal racist is moderate is not a stance, joining us is jason nichols thanks so much for joining us excuse me do you agree with alc? >> i think it is much more complicated than the way she stated it. i think that capitalism and element of socialism can
actually coexist and i think that'ses one of the things that people aren't talking about. we have almosts of socialism in our society right now from social security to medicare, and these are socialist programs that exist within a capitalist framework so ping -- that her -- statement about fdr as well although there were new deals that didn't work out well he established what was called black cabinet that had mary mccloud -- who was a really important figure in african-american history so i think -- she needs to actually do a little bit of study, a little bit and tamper it down just a bit. sm you know it seems like this is one of the major issues for the 2020 election. socialism issues versus capitalism and you can't really tiptoe around what she's saying she's saying it can't be redeemed so she might be confusing certains but blasting
capitalism and we have a capitalist society not a socialist society so -- i mean you say she needs to study up but what are her colleagues going to do who have also endorsed many of her plans -- going into 2020 up against president trump who was, obviously, a capitalist? >> yeah. i mean, i think that some of herren plays are not he isly bad there's some that had, obviously, needs some work i think she would agree with that i think the green new deal for example with something that was put out there. but obviously needs a whole lot of tweaking. i do think again, that nordic model is social democracy that's different than democratic socialism that's what they don't have an understanding of the term they're using but again having medicare, having health care for people have a clean environment, those can exist
within a capitalist framework and we doapght have to scared of socialism. >> spes she has specific plans this is for medicare for all and insurance industry green deal, you know 4 trillion dollars this is a specific plan not just oh we can have some parts of this. you know, so all socialist programs lee carter. >> i think you know, one of the things that is interesting to me about ocasio-cortez people are dismissive saying she needs to read up xepght underbeneath all of this there's a movement right and we're seeing -- polling bernie sanders is up there with polling and a up there with cortez her policies are capturing the hearts and minds of a lot of young people a lot of voters out there. and so i don't think that we can just be dismissive of them say she has to read up or they're incorrect but i think we have to
have alternative and strategies. alternative is to basically encordial poses is fuel production in this country of naturals gas, and gasoline because you know what, it is inexpensive that helps poorest of the poor by keeping costs low and creates literally millions of job miss this country and with natural gas it is reduced emissions out of power plants in this country. so that's why we focus on this specific -- well i think what we've seen -- >> you can't just say this broad stroke and you know she has the right idea and we have socialism already. this is specific plans that make no sense. but what really what we're looking at is bumper sticker politics by the way that's how a lot of candidates win and so if you come up with term of sound good medicare for all that's like me i'll be able to get the same insurance that any grandmother has everything is paid for that sounds fantastic without implication.
all you say is medicare for all is abolishment of all private insurance in this country that's all of the people need to hear who were going out to vote. maybe some other candidate comes up with a plan but bernie sanders and a the plan that most of these democratic candidates have signed on to it does abolish private insurance in this country ands that's not what a medicare is. no it's not. when you have that -- it is not. it doesn't poll that way it polls 20 percentage points almost 20 percentage points less when you tell people it gets rid of private insurance. >> it doesn't get rid of private insurance it doesn't -- it doesn't get rid of private insurance medicare for all can coexist with private insurance look if you want a nose job or cosmetic -- thing, you can certainly get you use your private insurance pay your private insurance to get kinds of things done. medicare for all and private insurance can coexist this kind of deal something that she's talking about. >> you can keep your doctor right. >> absolutely.
but i've read the bernie slam. this is a joke maybe that somebody else comes along with another plan. but the bernie sanders bill that kamala harris elizabeth warren, cory booker signed on to it does make private insurance illegal in this country. if it competes with the government plan it shall and that is chapter and verse, so that's the way it stands now and by the way no insurance pays for plastic surgery trust me on that you have to pay out of your pocket. [laughter] >> jason, i want to ask which way are democrats going in 2020 primaries are they going to end up with someone very much on the left or are they going to end up with a moderate like joe biden that's your prediction? >> i think we end up with somebody who was on left with strong ideals i think joe biden is going to struggle actually if you get into this thing. they say he's 5 a% in i think he's going to struggle with issues that go back to the 90s. so i think we're going to go

you rarely see a large company like this trade down to this extent. there's futures, if it's cutting 300 points from the dow industrials, the dow is down 150 points, so there is strength and gainers within the dow this morning. the s&p is up 3 and a quarter points, the nasdaq is up 17 points. we are going to see a big selloff in the dow because of boeing at the open. markets are extending last week's declines. the major indices were down last week, better than 2% apiece. global markets look like this. the fq100 is higher in london, up 53 points. real-time trading here, cac in paris is up 10, and the dax in germany is up 29. asia overnight, markets were higher across the board, take a look there, as you can see you've got the nikkei average up half a percent. the battle for border funding is on. president trump is asking congress for more than $8 billion today as part of his 2020 budget proposal.
it's set to spark another showdown on capitol hill because he wants $8.6 billion for the border wall. tesla doing a u-turn this morning. the company will keep more stores open now it says and raise prices, the opposite of what it said a few days ago. elon musk explains today why he should not be held in contempt of court. time is running out to use payless gift cards. what you need to know before heading to the store. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, john hilsenrath and lee carter. great to see you guys. >> great to be here. maria: a lot happening. >> the boeing story is a big one. the big question is what's the deal with these boeing 737 max airplanes. there's this erratic flight path we saw in ethiopia and other crashes. maria: there was a lion air
crash that had the same issue. when the ceo of boeing joined us, he said we made a change and maybe that change needed to be communicated to the pilots better. but we don't know if that's the same issue on this ethiopian crash but it's the same plane. >> it's an important airline for boeing and emerging markets. we saw today china grounded i think something like 96 of those airplanes. so there's a lot at stake. maria: lion air was back in october. and now we're looking at this in ethiopia, the same exact jet, the 737. we have breaking news on the plane crash right now. according to the airline, the cockpit voice rodder and digital flight data recorder have been found at the crash site. more countries are grounding the boeing 737 max 8 jet. mike boyd joins us now, to give us aerospace expertise on this. what can you tell us about this particular jet and the issues
around it? >> between the max 8 and max 9 you're looking at under 3 a 500 airplanes on order for boeing. this is not inconsequential. in the us we have just under 80 of them flying, the max 8 and the max 9. if these get grounded, and that could happen, even temporarily, it could be a real hit on the airline industry going forward. it's going to be a bit on boeing terribly. china's our biggest market for this airplane. if china grounded them -- remember, china's aviation regulations are a direct ringer for american. they copied ours. if they think it's serious, it's going to be the faa's conclusion as all. maria: the stock is down 9% as a result of this. how much do you think is about china saying you're messing with huawei, we've got this news happening today, we're going to ground all the planes from boeing. known that boeing is such an
important exporter of the united states to china, boeing jets. >> that might be in the background somewhere. look, china knows they need us more than we need them in the long, long term. so i think this has to do with safety. their federal aviation regulations effectively are the same as ours almost. they're looking at this the same way the faa is. looking at just about 80 air plains flyin80airplanes flying e serious about this. maria: you've got all passengers dead, the airline went down just after it took off whavment do you yooff. what do you think happened? >> it looks like a carbon copy of what happened with lion air. at the first point, lion air could have been a number of other thongs. we know now it probably wasn't. it could be some auto pilot issue that just comes up irregularly and if that's the case, i think it's going to be very serious for u.s. carriers as well as for boeing.
>> can we dril down drill down ? what's described is there's a pass descent, a descent, another fast descent. what technically speaking might be driving that kind of erratic behavior of an airplane? >> the way i've seen it explained is the airplane senses that it's going to go into a stall where the nose is going up and it's going to slow down and crash so the airplane says we're not doing that and it slams the nose down and the pilot has to fight to keep the nose from going down to gain speed. i think what we have is we're fighting the computer from the movie, this hal is doing what it wants to do, the computer. maria: i know that other airlines within the u.s. are using this same jet, the 737 max 8. are you expecting those jets to also get grounded? >> well, i mean, when you have 34 at southwest and 24 at american and 14 of them at
united, that's not a huge chunk but it's going to be something that i think, yeah they're going to be looking at those airplanes, whether grounding temporarily or a period of time, but they're going to do something with the airplanes, probably within the next six hours. maria: we'll be watching that. this has major implications for boeing and we'll be watching it. no wonder we're looking at such a strong reaction on wall street. we want to look at the connection to u.s./china trade. we're waiting for the ongoing trade talks to continue with uncertainty over what happens next the tariff negotiations. this comes as huawei is syning the u.s. government over -- suing the u.s. government over the law passed last year which bars the company's equipment from certain networks. i spoke with john bolton. here's what he said about the lawsuit. what's your reaction to the lawsuit against the u.s. government? >> there are a couple of aspects to this. yonumber one, the united statess
well as other countries, allies and friends of ours, sometimes back decided not to procure huawei equipment for our national security related telecommunications systems and i think for very, very good reason. the justice department also indicted the chief financial officer of huawei. that was not a political act either. she was accused of financial fraud. the extra dig extradition procee begun in canada. if an american company with an american cfo had done what the justice department accused huawei of, we would throw the book at them, as simple as that. maria: joining us now is author gordon chang. good to see you. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. maria: where are we on this? say want to get your take on whether or not this boeing grounded situation that china's grounding the 737-8 jet -- max jets is anything to do with this
trade story. >> on boeing, first of all, i think it is a safety issue. you've got to remember that china has a brand-new competitor for the 737 max series and that's their komax919 which is about to be sold. so i think clearly that's in the back of the chinese minds which is the reason why they were among the first to actually ground the plane. so there are political considerations as well as safety ones. maria: where are we on a deal? >> who knows. it changes day by day. i actually think that everyone wants a deal but a deal's not going to stay together because the communist party genetically cannot honor trade obligations. we're going to see a series of difficult, i think discussions with the chinese because they're not going to enforce it and we're going to want to go back and snap back tariffs and all sorts of things. what we should do is keep the tariffs on until they actually stop stealing our stuff and they stop these trade violations which have gotten worse under xi-jinping. >> do you think the trump
administration if it does a deal and the president in particular are kind of losing this negotiation if they go and do a deal without strong enforcement mechanism have they given in? >> of course. i don't know if they're going to do it. on the other side of this we've got a lot of democrats running for president and there are three states, wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania, you've got a lot of blue collar workers there. they're going to say i've been betrayed, if the president does that. i'm not going to rush to judgment and say the president's going cave. i think there is a run of stuff on the other side that will force him to do the right thing. >> if a deal doesn't get done, then everybody's saying what's going to happen to the market. it's like a lose, lose scenario here. >> he cares very much about the stock market. maria: he can't cave on these issues. there's been a tipping point in this subject. people understand what china has been doing. people understand how they're sucking up our intelligence at
every point, whether it's through academia or acquisitions or just transferring technology. he can't cave, just from what you said, just from the constituents in all those states. >> going back to huawei, this is a fight for the first half of the 21st century when you combine 5g and a.i. and huawei is 5g. clearly, they have been engaging in activities like downloading data from the headquarters of the african union from 2012 to 2017 and the chinese did that with huawei equipment that they donated to the a.u. when they gave them the building. clearly, this is not some sort of theoretical issue. this is something that the chinese have already been doing. we've got an ftc case against qualcomm. the star wins o star witness ont day of the trial was huawei. >> we've got weak car sales data
out of china overnight. what's your assessment of how the economy is doing and how much pressure is on the chinese to get a deal done. >> i think there is certainly a lot. the chinese economy probably started to contract in december when you start looking at not only car sales which are down 13% in december -- maria: contract or grow slower? >> no, no, this is contraction. january and february they were down, which makes months seven and eight what'. maria: what's the 6% number, china says their economy is growing 6%. >> you had a well-known chinese professor in beijing created a sensation across china when he said look, our economy's growing no more than 1.67 and it may be contracting. you look at car sales, they clearly show that retail sales were not up in the month. you saw exports and imports
crumble in december. they were down in the combined january and february period. maria: that's pas fascinating. >> you look at the pmis for critical manufacturing sector, they've been negative consistently. >> how much pressure is on xi-jinping to get a deal done? >> i think there's a lot. there's a lot of sniping from the sidelines. he owns the trade war. he owns the slumping economy. and when you're chairman of everything as the people say, he's accountable for everything. so he could actually be i think in a vulnerable position right now because of these two issues. >> he's promised his people prosperity. what happens if they don't get it? what's the outlook for social unrest? maria: unrest in the streets which is what he doesn't want. >> this is a big year for sensitive anniversaries, 100 years of the may 4th movement, 706 years since the founding of the people's republic. maria: are they going to put an enforcement issue in there? how will they enforce that china
keeps promises. >> there will be an unsubstantial enforcement provision like snapback tariffs. that's not the way we need to go. the chinese violate every agreement. maria: keep the tariffs in place and -- >> we're putting tariffs on already. why do you need snapback? >> we should ban the import of products that benefited from the theft of u.s. intellectual property, 3 to $400 billion a year, some say more. maria: some say it's up to 600 gordon, great to have you on the program. coming up, the. u-turn at tesla. the company announces they are keeping more stores open. elon musk has until today to respond to the securities and exchange commission. time is running out for payless customers. today is the last day you can use the store's gift cards, coming up, right here. ♪ when i come through.

maria: welcome back. another budget battle is brewing as president trump seeks $8.6 billion for the border wall in his 2020 budget proposal. fox news' kevin cork is at the white house with more details. good morning. >> reporter: always great to be with you, my friend. as wish lift lists go, no chancs going to pass budget but it's a reasonable snapshot into the priorities of this particular administration and by the way, we also can learn a lot about how they're thinking for the years ahead. let's talk border wall. that's going to be all the headline today. people are talking about the president looking for billions more to fund border security along the southern border. we're talking about $8.6 billion, 5 from dhs, $3.6 billion from defense military construction. that would complete 722 miles of
border barrier. yes, democrats are pushing back. chuck schumer, nancy pelosi in a joint statement reads in part, congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat. and reopen the government. same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again. here's larry kudlow. >> i would just say that the whole issue of the wall, border security is of paramount importance. we have a crisis down there. i think the president has made that case very effectively. it's a crisis of economics. it's a crisis of crime and drugs. it's a crisis of humanity. >> reporter: a crisis of humanity. by the way, we also expect the white house to lay out a plan for congress to cut 5% from the nondefense spending. that will start a fight, maria. we'll have details for you at 11:30 a.m. now, back to you. maria: kevin, we'll be watching that. thanks so much. coming up, a shale revolution, a new report shows the u.s. is set

tell us how that changes the dynamic for the u.s. in terms of what we'll be buying from overseas markets and selling. >> well, it's a very big deal for the u.s. so to put things in perspective, the u.s. oil production is exceeding 12 million barrels a day, making us the number one world oil producer. in addition, we're producing another 5 million barrels of natural gas liquids. so we don't really talk about that very much but that goes into petrochemical manufacturing. what's happening is with the increase in oil production, our imports of oil is going down. that makes us a more powerful person to be reckoned with on the oil market, tends to keep oil prices at reasonable levels. >> andy, this report says net oil producer within two years. aren't we already close to being a net oil producer, exporter right now? i think there was a week last -- in december where we exported
more than we imported. the national data suggests that we were close to it in december for the month as a whole. >> well, it is. and that's a reflection of the fact that we still continue to import crude oil but our refining industry has grown to make us a large exporter of gasoline and diesel. so the net difference between imports and exports has now swung into the export favor. dagen: when will we be completely self-sufficient in terms of the energy we produce? >> well, if we think about it as crude oil and natural gas, we're really approaching that right now because we are producing so much natural gas, not only for domestic consumption but for the export market. you look at all these pipelines delivering natural gas to canada and mexico as well as the liquefied natural gas facilities on the gulf coast, we really have swung i think pretty close to being a net energy exporter.
dagen: so these green new deal proposals, specifically the one from alexandria ocasio-cortez, it would basically destroy all of that, would it not? >> well, it certainly has a big impact on fossil fuel. you have to ask yourself on the new green deal, where is that energy going to come from. because the consumer is still demanding affordable energy. if we are translating the energy from oil to electricity, that power has to come from somewhere, most likely natural gas electricity generation and we're going to have to put in transmission facilities to get it from the power market to the consumer. dagen: it's going to come from unicorns riding little stationary bicycles, that's where it's going to come from. [ laughter ] dagen: sorry. >> you certainly see a lot of local opposition to building more transmission lines, whether it's transmission lines, say, into long island or across texas or even across anke arkansas and
louisiana. you see public opposition to building more wires that are overhead. it makes it more difficult to transition to an electrical type of energy source. maria: we'll leave it there. andy, great insights. thanks so much. >> thank you. maria: coming up, the final day to pay less, payless shoes won't honor company gift cards of after today if you've got one. then, a snow stunner, one nebraska cop shocked to find a mustang made entirely of snow. check this out. ♪ to be loved by you. ♪ how sweet it is to be loved by you to manage my money? it's racquetball time. ♪ carl, does your firm offer a satisfaction guarantee? like schwab does.

indicating a selloff at the start of trading this morning for the dow. the dow is down 156 points, boeing representing 300 points, meaning there are a number of gainers within the dow as well. we're looking at the dow down 155 points this morning, two-thirds of 1% even as the s&p and nasdaq are up this morning about a quarter of a percent higher on nasdaq. markets are extending last week's declines. major indices were down last week across the board, better than 2% apiece as you see. global markets this morning mostly higher. european indices higher across the board. fq100 up a half a percent, 38 points higher, the cac in paris up 14 points and the dax index in germany up 36. in asia overnight gains across the board. best performer was china, shanghai composite up almost 2%, apparently exports surging in the first few days of march in china according to government officials there. time is running out to use payless gift cards. what you need to know before heading to the store this morning. a snowy surprise, one nebraska trooper was shocked when he

[ laughter ] maria: two captain americas in one room, how congressman dan crenshaw pays tribute to the superhero played by chris evans. all those stories coming up this morning. we begin with elon musk, the tesla ceo facing a deadline today. he has to explain why he should not be held in contempt of court over a tweet that he sent last month. here's what he wrote in the tweet. tesla made zero cars in 2011 but will make around 500,000 in 2019. the securities and exchange commission says the tweet violates an agreement that says musk's tweets about the company must be vetted. joining us right now is judge andrew napolitano. vetting, judge. >> good morning. you remember last year he tweeted that he had an extraordinary amount of money in the hands of an investor ready to invest in his company and that had an effect on the market. maria: on funding secure.
>> funding secured. maria: take the company private. >> he leaked out the number and all that stuff. the s.e.c. came down hard on him and was not a judicial proceeding. it was amicably resolved. a $20 million fine. he had to have his tweets about tesla vetted by a team in the legal department. he did not do that last week. so they moved to hold him in contempt. his papers are due this morning. i checked before i came in. they're not filed. lawyers file everything at the last minute. they're not due until 9:00. they're not going to be in court this morning 67. they will articulate their argument. what will the argument be? the tweet is what everybody knew already. is he going to go to jail? no? is he going to lose his position as ceo? no, he's a majority shareholder. there will probably be some sort of fine and maybe tightening of the screws a little bit.
the s.e.c. cannot go lightly on him because he's a character and celebrity as well as a fabulously successful entrepreneur or they will lose their clout when they want to regulate other people who do the same thing but are not as well-known. maria: can you make this a law, you've got to get your tweets vetted. dagen: you can if you foul up and get fined by the s.e.c. when they go after you and essentially with charges and you come to a settlement and you agree that your tweets will be vetted by somebody legally within the company and then it doesn't happen -- one thing he did correct this production level tweet right after, that first tweet. he issued kind of a correction or clarification. but he's continuing to poke the s.e.c., that's his biggest problem. he referred to them as the short seller enrichment commission. >> you know what, it's funny and there's an argument for it but you don't taunt thea the alliga.
you don't taunt the judge that can control your freedom. dagen: is the s.e.c. really anil gator. they're more like a panda bear. >> whatever you want to call them. dagen: or koala. >> in can get in the middle of his business and regulate him out of it if they can show that his behavior was inconsistent with the requirements of the securities and exchange commission. >> how would they have known the tweet wasn't vet inned the first place? are they monitoring every single tweet he does and who vets it? >> that is a good question. there must have been some acknowledgement that it wasn't vetted. maria asked a good question a few moments ago, is it a law that your tweet versus to be vetted. no, it's not. maria: part of the settlement. >> when you enter into a settlement agreement you do some things that are not necessarily what the law requires but what your adversary requires in order to end the dispute. that's what happened here.
dagen: and at a publicly traded company you would think that every tweet is monitored if it's a tweet by an executive at the company, one of the top five executives because it's considered public communications. maria: you would, that's true. it's public communication. >> public communication which can affect the decision of investors and the value of their equity and it can't just come off the top of his head. it's got to be something consistent with company policy. dagen: speaking off the top of his head, the latest thing too. maria: you're pricing a announcement. dagen reported at the top of the show, tesla says it's going to be keeping more stores open and it's going to be raising prices. this is just two weeks after the company said it would do the opposite. dagen: the last day of february tesla came out and said we're shutting most of the stores, we're going all online for sales and we're cutting prices on all the vehicles by 6%. and now it's going to do the opposite, it's going to keep stores open and raise the prices on most of the vehicles. >> question, can they change

it will be free mayo m a ari en- marnara for everybody. i watched "saturday night live" this weekend. the writing was pretty funny. the opening was great, leslie jones, keenan thompson, doing the r. kelly stretch. it was really funny. they always have to do the donald trump jokes. i wish they woul would just be . they can do that. i don't know why they always have to pick on the president. maria: the r. kelly interview was insane. how about the dan crenshaw meeting, another hero on friday, showed off his captain america glass eye to the man behind the shield, actor chris evans. we know what happened with snl here where snl made fun of the congressman, crenshaw and he went on -- i guess it was good, he went on, they made fun of it and they all ended up friends at the end. >> that's what i love to see. that's what i love to see. there are things happening in
the world, yesterday on futures, on sunday morning futures on fox news. maria: yes. >> that was brilliant discussion with john bolton, national security advisor. it was brilliant. you were talking about china. if anybody is thinking about what i'm talking about, you have to check out the show yesterday with john bolton. china is taking over everything. they're so obsessed with russia, everybody's obsessed with russia. russia, due respect to the russians, they're small fliers the chinese. now, that's a sketch that the chinese are taking over everything. we were thinking the chinese were take -- we were talking about the chinese taking over the italian restaurants in brooklyn, you know what i mean. maria: that's not going to happen, joe. >> [ laughter ] >> brooklyn girl. but there's fodder there. it's something that is happen. that's news worthy, you know. maria: i do think this is the biggest issue of our time. i mean, really. i wonder if the democratic candidates are talking about this as well. i mean, 2020 is here, right,
joe? i know you're talking about it all the time on 970 am, the answer, your program that we're on now live. there's a new poll of likely democratic caucus voters from the des moines register, 27% say that former vice president joe biden is their first choice for president, bernie sanders is their second at 2 a 5% and then you've got elizabeth warren in a distant third at 9%. what's your take on the dem lineup? >> no one can beat donald trump. donald trump's going to win. if this is the -- due respect, by the way. this isn't pro trump. it's not pro trump. no one's going to beat the president. he will win in a landslide. he will win in a landslide. mariawhydo.maria: why do you st 1234. >> you need somebody from the outside. bring in oprah, bring in mark cuban. those are the people that would give the president a run for his money. i'm only telling you what the audience is telling us. maria: what about biden beto. >> i never like to be mean. we put aside the divide on this
show. i don't think biden beto makes it. i don't think you beat president trump. i think he walks away from it. when they make fun of the president on "saturday night live," that's okay. i was thinking about when danny akroyd, when he did richard nixon, that was funny and john belushi did henry kissinger, let's pray, henry, let's pray and john belushi would say i don't want to pray, mr. president. i don't want to pray. you have to laugh at it. we can have some fun with it. i think president trump should have fun with it. again, you hit the nail on the head when you were talking about china, that's something i would love to see on "saturday night live." i would love to see cesily strong do more ocasio-cortez on "saturday night live." maria: she played me after the debate. >> i saw that. that was great. maria: that was awesome. >> that's what i want to he see. when we followed the original
"saturday night live," we had to follow belushi and gilda and our producer said just be funny and they did it this weekend on "saturday night live." it was funny and it was great. especially with leslie jones and hkeenan doing the r. kelly kell. when you go to the president, you don't have to do that. when you want to pick an issue, it's china taking over everything. maria: i'm surprised they're not doing more on the dems. is there anything to make fun of with aoc. you started the conversation calling yourself joe ocacio piscopo. >> absolutely. i keep saying this over and over and over again. leslie jones, you've got to -- maxine waters is material that writes itself. she really is. i'd like to see them play thunderstorm watch. i always talk about adam schiff. he looks so -- [noise]. they should do something with

big divides in trade dispute has been intellectual property trade theft, theft of trade secrets i spoke with john bolton this weekend national security adviser to the united states "sunday morning futures," who said this about those issues, watch. >> i've got a list of companies here sued huawei for stealing trade secrets then seltdz lawsuits with them cisco motola,microsoft, et cetera, how do you move the needle on that. >> i will say this i think president trump identified exactly central issues you referred to norms damage done to the united states over a period of decades by chinese stealing intellectual property, and forced technology transfers criticality to reversing the pattern get this right in negotiations so i don't think it should be surprising, but complex, and china is faced with very difficult choices here. >> you are saying issues need
to be involved in terms of theft forced transfer technology before a two countries can do a deal right. >> yeah i think in terms of the response from huawei,but if our mind it is something that is nonpolitical very much -- put together to enhance understanding between different nations and enhance the international exchange and promote peace, so i think to an extent can help with definitely love to bring people all under the work together. >> you have an enormous opportunity because of majority of the people in china have never been on a plane, right tell us about the growth expectations that you see. >> wonderful. i joined company 14 years ago, when we startling our company, we only have one or two customers at the beginning, this year, it is going to be our year now we have 300 million, active, the most --

6 to 6.5%, travel will download growths. >> travel will doubling gdp growth. >> yeah, when we will be doubling the travel business our package is at least 3 to 4 times gdp growths, the most recent number among we grow -- to 3% year-over-year growth i think china still have a long way to go. because a couple reasons. first of all, although the gdp in total amount is the second in the whole world, gdp per capita is only 8,000 usd per person much, much behind european countries and united states. secondly in terms of organization, china is still behind many, many countries. the level of organization, is about 40 to 50% whereas 70 to 80% in the most advanced country the third one is
investment in education, as you know confucius teaches every family pay lots of attention to education that is the investment into the future generation. so we are very confident china in the next 10 years will grow well. >> i said earlier you've got this incredible runway that potential growth, because so many chinese have never even been on an airline. >> that is correct. >> that is correct. >> so of you three brands sea trip trip.com sky scan rz people use these mostly on mobile device. >> that is right. >> tell me about that different than here in the u.s. where basically the chinese skipped over the pc right to mobility. >> exactly, 80 to 90% of our transactions are conducted on cell phone the cell phone will buy to enable us to have one-stop shopping platform, so

>> i think growth this year will be slower than last year last year was highest growth experienced sense financial crisis in more than 10 years, this year, i expect that growth will continue to be pof continue to be health rate. >> jay powell on 6 0 0 minz did say president could not fire him, joining us farmer a regular adviser art laffer the section with you and joe piscopo most entertaining in ages he is great you are too, by the way, you really played right with it, it was great. >> thank you art let's talk about the economy here, because it looks like things are going well, and yet you still have that off chance that we are going toe to see a recession recession in 2020 we know earnings have slowed down quite a bit. what is your take on where we are right now given the latest numbers art?
>>s i think kevin hassett is correct much slower growth first quarter for sure what you got with jay powell what he said last might on 60 minz is connect slowing down, but i don't think the u.s. is i think the u.s. has a long term prospect of great growth with tax cuts monetary reform regulatory reform if president does that wonderful proposal making hospitals come clean hospitals, doctors on what operations what medical care actually costs in transactions, that would be unbelievebly positive for the economy i am looking forward to very strong 2019, i think recovery whatever you want to call it -- >> i have been focused on the second quarter because april 15 tax day i am wondering when people pay taxes high tax states like new york, new jersey, if they are getting
sticker shock saying i thought my taxes would be up because of salt deduction elimination didn't realize up this much maybe pull in after april what do you think. >> you have already got census bureau numbers from 2017 to 208 june-july come out already seeing acceleration, people are really understanding the impact of what happens when you get rid of that -- when you get rid of the salt deduction at least limit it, that will have a huge impact. >> you say you are going to have a good 2019 you are not really thinking this is going to have won't be that big of a deal. >> it will be a big deal but negative for new york great positive for tennessee where i live, i know two balance out, change the constellation of u.s. straights dramatically i don't think will affect i maintain i think positively affect u.s. growth in total it will have negative state effects. >> i want to ask you about the growth rate again we had
growth north rate north of 4% second quarter 3% third quarter 2% in the secretary -- in fourth quarter now looks like it's goinging to be 1% in first quarter of this year, looks like the growth rate is slowing, you are saying we are going to have a really good year what drives it what is driver of the acceleration that you are expecting after deceleration. >> last 12 months. >> fourth over fourth if you get that you get a number in neighborhood 3.1% but let's say 3% for the year, what you have is the tax cuts the longer they are in place the more they will impact economic growth. the less tax evasion you get the las tax shelter you will get more he efficient tax codes, that you will stuff is going to be accumulative active what i think happened first quarter shutdown had big impact hurt economy you will get that recovery from that
first quarter in second quarter i believe, and i think it looks really great for 2019. >> the recovery for 2019 what happens if no china deal gets done. >> well, china deal would be a huge plus, i would be disappointed if no china deal got done but a china deal will be very, very booed especially for markets, i i mean i think the stock market has a number i used sort of a -- thumbnail approach is that it will cause 4,000 on dow about the number you get from a good china deal that will lead to faster economic growth as well you can't underestimate the importance of china, to u.s. trade how much it impacts u.s. economy, it is norms. >> what happens if we say we get to may 1 there is no deal? >> well i think that will be negative for the economy for the country. but i don't think it will be a killer as long as prospects for a deal later on. >> talking about mar-a-lago
meeting going into april they haven't set a date to meet with xi jinping, obviously feels like something broke down here -- i don't know if china is balking at idea it needs to stop stealing ip or what. >> apparently reporting in "the wall street journal" "the wall street journal" xi jinping was dlon off by president trump walking away from north korean summit did not want to go into any meeting at mar-a-lago with president trump without a deal that was ironclad. >> yesterday -- sunday, when they did get thrown off because of the north korea summit break don, you have to wonder if president would have same kind of attitude toward xi jinping if they don't if they say look we have this meeting set, i am going to come to maria lag heo do it the president decides i will cancel it, and -- then xi jinping gets embarrassed, so there is some truth to that. >> i think there is a lot of truth to that in fact, i think he is very smart not to come
to mar-a-lago without having good deal in hand, larry kudlow was on show this weekend said, you know there is no deal that we will do that is not the a good deal that is correct way to be, we waited a long time, for this deal with china it has been a long, long time, you know, why rush it not get the right deal? if we're six months later who cares in lung run all of that doesn't matter what we really need to do is have free trade with china free trade with china incorporates for u.s. without china there is no walmart no walmart no -- >> waiting on retail sales in about 30 seconds, and estimate right now is for retail sales month of january unchanged. those numbers are coming out literally imminently the consumer or business growing the capex number was impressive. >> i think a supply-side driven model we have business tax rate reductions personal
income tax rate instructions all increase incentives to work and produce increase output why you are seeing participation rates rise, growth in the economy continue, it is because it pays off to work, and that is really -- what you want. >> reaction to the retail sales number imminently coming out would you say consumer is strong right now or -- what -- what up 2/10 of a percent the number better better we were expecting unchanged retail sales month of january up 2/10 of a percent reaction. >> i think great, i think right in line with what i expect i expect a long-term period of economic growth in u.s. all people who say a sugar high from tax cuts all that are plain wrong tax cuts are not going back up again, we are going to have tax rates in place a long time, and they will increase economic growth for a long time. >> retail sales better than expected jon hilsenrath -- >> we have to see any revision in december numbers but
january number, 2/10 that is good news commerce. >> going in in the january, when we had a government shutdown a lot of people thought that could even push numbers down. >> i will ask you waiting for december numbers to show up, about the outlook for government spending a budget out today from the white house, calling for 5% discretionary budget cuts, looks like just the opposite is going to happen in washington it looks like, you know, the budget caps go back, in place on october 1 if there isn't a new budget deal looks like it's going to be a new spending deal more spending not -- cuts in spending. as white house is proposing. what do you -- >> you are ruining my day, the president obviously would love spending cuts that is one area of economics that there has been no progress spending straighten key to economic prosperity long run.
