strong border security and the wall are being praised as they return to their states. they know there is a national emergency at the southern border and they had the courage to act. great job. meanwhile, a fight is ensuing on capitol hill over where the money for a wall will come from. many concerned about pulling funds from the military and there's talk of a reported list of projects set to be defunded. acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney dismissing that. >> there's no identified list of projects that will not be funded. there will be a list of projects that won't be touched. we're prioritizing what projects are on the pentagon's books for 2020 and beyond. >> reporter: democrat senator tim kaine says if republicans see this source of funding it will spell trouble. >> this is the white house wanting to hold the list back because they worry that if senators and house members saw the potential projects that were going to be ransacked to pay for the president's wall, they would
lose votes. >> reporter: mulvaney says he expects the president will be upheld. lauren: thank you very much. cheryl: now to your weather. heavy rain, melting snow is causing historic flooding in the midwest. in nebraska floodwaters damaged 500 homes in one county alone. the governors of iowa, nebraska, wisconsin have declared states of emergency. lauren: janice dean has the latest for us. janice: it's going to take weeks, if not months to get the rivers to lower over the next several weeks we're going to see the potential for flooding, not only for nebraska but parts of iowa and missouri, all of this flooding of course goes downstream so we have flash flood warnings in effect in and around the omaha area, nebraska and the ohio river valley, the mississippi river valley, it's
going to feed southward. this will be a big story throughout the next couple of weeks, into the next few months and then we have another system that's going to bring some rain, not a heavy heavy rainfall but any more water is not a good situation for this area as we go through the next couple of weeks and we have the snow melt and the ice jams, so this will be an ongoing story unfortunately for this areas that are into historic flood levels. forecast today, sunshine across the l central u.s. we'll see that little system move in over the next 24 hours and then here in new york city, 47 degrees and of course spring arrives this wednesday. there's your silver lining. back to you ladies. lauren: i like the silver lining. cheryl: nice warm, pink graphic, we like that for sure. janice: i tried. cheryl: great job. you're mostly sunny as always. thanks, janice. taking a look at futures this morning, you want to watch the dow today, a little bit of

frankly. why is donald trump butting in in in such a big way in this instance? >> you have to remember he's all about jobs and with the low unemployment rate at 3.8%, he doesn't want to see ohio, which is his state, suddenly think you're not giving us jobs, you're taking jobs away. some of the jobs from the lordstown plant have been relocated while others still don't have jobs and this is a big problem. i think that if he doesn't get in there and start pushing general motors to produce product here in the u.s. rather than taking vehicles like blazer and having them built in mexico, that's a problem. so they can relocate blaze rer to lordstown if they choose to. lauren: it's not just ohio. polls are showing that the president is losing his support in many states in the industrial midwest. >> well, i don't get into the plighcallthepolitical side. froit's all about jobs.
part of it is obviously that union fees, retirement fees and people have to want to buy those cars and we are buying suvs and trucks and that's really what consumers want and they should be made in the us. mercedes will build in alabama, a $200,000 luxury vehicle. lauren: toyota investing $13 billion in the u.s. is toyota selecting states to produce cars and hire american workers that don't support unions? is that the difference? >> you are spot-on. you are correct. they're producing in west virginia, alabama, tennessee, places that are nonunion states. lauren: missouri, kentucky. >> exactly. lauren: so is the message here then about the unions? >> well, i know that in this case we do need the unions in detroit and ohio and those are jobs that need to be secure. it's a matter of the president offering some sort of incentive which he has before or
potentially taking away an incentive. right now, the new budget includes taking away the e.v. tax credit as well as reducing or eliminating the money that goes to manufacturers to produce better, fuel efficient cars. if that goes away, which is entirely possible, manufacturers no longer will have the same type of pressure them from the federal government. it will be interesting to see how the budget unfolds. lauren: it will. over the weekend fox news channel had an interview with a u.a.w. local president, david green. he lashed out at him on twitter. tim ryan from ohio, said look, green has done everying h everye can, he's reached out to the president many times before but no response from president trump. what do you make of that? >> u.aw as far as negotiations between them and general motors which is coming in the fall is going to be very interesting.
the uaw wants to get people jobs. the president wants to support those jobs. but i don't know why he hasn't replied in the past. i don't have an in at the white house. but i will tell you, it's going to be very contentious, especially with ford and chrysler because it's about jobs. lauren: lauren fix, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you. cheryl: about making good cars people want to drive too. there you go. let's take a look right now at futures because we've got some pressure on the dow this morning. you might want to keep your eye on boeing this morning, pressure on boeing stock after the reports over the weekending dow down 48, s&p down a quarter point, nasdaq higher by 5 points. big week as the fed meets by the way. still ahead, as the 2020 playing field keeps getting bigger, there is new speculation after joe biden's apparent slip of the tongue. plus, marijuana infused products, they are sweeping the country and one iconic famous candy you ate as child is now

lauren: happy monday. let's get you caught up on global market action this morning. the s&p 500 is sitting 4% from an all-time high. futures are down slightly this morning for the s&p. the dow is down 50 points. but mind you, boeing shares losing 2%, that is weighing on the blue chip average. europe, stocks are trading mixed. the red arrow is in germany, down 5 points. deutsche bank and commerce bank consistent r firminconfirming tr talks. sea of green in asia overnight, the shanghai composite up 2 and-a-half percent. you can tell us more about that. cheryl: you're looking at the markets, they're actually kind of sloughing off, don't seem worried about the new news that broke over the weekend on a summit between president trump
and china's xi-jinping may be pushed back to june. the south china morning post reported over the weekend the proposed meeting in april is now less likely. the summit at mar-a-lago was pushed back from march with no official new date announced. we thought it was going to be april. now who knows. hudson valley investment advisor ceo gus gako joins us now. it doesn't look like markets are reacting to this news. we're not as sensitive as we were earlier about u.s.-china trade negotiations. why? >> i think there's a few things that have happened. number one, with the trump administration saying that they're not going to go to 25% tariffs from the 10%, it still puts pressure on china but it's not as aggressive as it was. i think there has been headway made by u.s. representatives. you've seen that you end up having this investment law that was voted on recently by the chinese government which will allow us now to have teeth. there's some sort of criminal law, i'm sorry, there will be a criminal penalty as opposed to
administrative penalties if you do something such as theft of intellectual property. cheryl: it's interesting because one of the things the south china morning post reported, their sources likely government sources, are saying one of the issues they're pointing to on the u.s. side is the u.s. and lighthizer in particular want the enforcement of any promises made by the chinese but on the chinese side that looks unlikely. so any deal, even if it is kind of a luke warm deal, maybe you call it a bad deal even though they sign it by june, say, even though that is signed and put into place does that really mean markets are going to be less nervous about the issues china has been doing for years, devaluation of the currency, the internet theft, all of that, the laundry list. what does that tell you? >> i think the law that was recently passed, it doesn't go into effect until january of 2020, so it will give you nine months to basically work things unctioout. prior administrations, such as
the prior bush and obama administrations were given assurances by china that they would not continue to basically take intellectual property of the u.s. and those things went basically to the side. this is giving you teeth and it's going to offer us at least some sort of rest pr retributiof those things are taken in the future. cheryl: president trump has gotten so much further with the chinese than any president in decades. you've got to say that about him. the fed will be meeting this week, two days. no acshins really expected. in that statement, i think the language again is going to be the key as they give us a sense of what would trigger them to raise interest rates later this year or maybe cut. what do you think about the meeting? >> right now, there's a lot of information that's on the come such as you end up getting services and manufacturing numbers at the end of the week. there's been a lot of noise. we ended up having a lower than expected number for employment last week. you're seeing there had been a slowdown.
that's backward-looking. as we look into the future, there has been a pick-up and you're looking in terms of investment and productivity growth has improved. i think we'll get a rebound from where we were and i think the fed is on hold until they end up getting past this period of slowness. i don't think you'll end up seeing anything until the back half of the year in terms of any talk of raising rates. cheryl: it would be nice if they tell us when they will officially end the bond buying program. any clarity we appreciate from them. we appreciate you, gus, thank you. good to see you monday. lauren: democrats on the far left are making waves with their socialist agenda. a new poll shows capitalism may be losing its apea in the party. -- appeal in the party. 47% of democrats have a favorable view of capitalism. some democratic lawmakers are pushing back including congresswoman donna shalala. she represents a district in south florida where tens of thousands of constituents fled
oppressive socialist regimes. i asked her about the direction her party is moving in here at home. >> i just came from the venezuelan, colombia border, looking into the faces of people who are the results, hungry, sick, absolutely devastated, a great nation, venezuela, destroyed by socialism. you simply cannot be a grown-up and look into those faces and think that this is a path that any country should take. lauren: why is that message, which seems so bipartisan, which seems so logical, not resonate throughout the entire democratic party? >> well, you're talking about a tiny part of the democratic party. and it's just a loud voice at the moment. and it's tied to certain kinds of issues. and so i keep repeating this, that the vast majority of democrats want nothing to do
with socialism. >.lauren: are you worried that florida which wept for president trump in 2016 by 1 percentage point, are you worried that venezuela could be the secret weapon to the gop's success in taking florida again and maybe the entire country in the general? >> i don't think so. because there's no daylight between the democratic party including our leadership and the leader pship oship of the repubn party on the issue of venezuela. we all agree that maduro must go. he's a narco guy. he's not even a decent regime leader. he's propped up by the cubans, the russians, by the chinese. lauren: lastly, i wanted to ask you if you wanted to make predictions on the democratic ticket for 2020. >> i believe the candidate of the democratic party will not be anyone that flirts with socialism. lauren: there you have it. i pressed her. everyone's talking about biden,
beto, she didn't answer specifically but she didn't seem to get on-board with that. cheryl: we've seen pressure with aoc's polling numbers recently, her approval rating, so there you go. maybe socialism is not the way the party's going to go. lauren: logic is setting in. cheryl: we have other headlines making news this morning. pushing back, google responding to president trump over comments from joint chiefs of staff chairman general joseph dunford that google's work is benefiting the chinese military. google denying this, saying we are working with the u.s. government including the department of defense in many areas including cyber security, recruiting and healthcare. okay. entering the fray, new york senator kirsten gillibrand announced she is running for president. she announced it yesterday. former vice president joe biden almost officially declared his run in a fund raising dinner over the weekend.
