sh good mornin.ashley: good mo, everybody. let's take a look at how your money is moving. u.s. stock market futures slightly higher, dow up 35, s&p and nasdaq slightly higher for the second trading day of the week. europe, what's going on there, same story, essentially flat for the ftse and the cac. in germany, the dax down a third of a percent. what happened in asia overnight? the markets there after the selloff the previous day, the markets higher, exception for the shanghai. lauren: welcome to "fbn: a.m.." good morning. i'm lauren simonetti. ashley: i'm ashley webster in for cheryl casone. lauren: you heard the apple news yesterday, the company announcing new services for entertainment, financial services, news, video games. unfortunately, not everyone's impressed. ashley: that's always the way. hillary vaughn is in california with the he details. >> reporter: good morning. apple announcing it is taking on
streaming giants, netflix, hulu and amazon, by hiring hollywood's hottest actors and directors to turn out original content, strictly for their new streaming service, apple tv plus. the new platform is coming this fall. we don't know how much it's going to cost subscribers, but here's the pitch for how they're going to compete in the streaming industry. >> we partnered with the most accomplished story tellers, as well as a new generation of the most exciting voices who, together, will define apple tv plus as the destination for the highest quality originals. >> reporter: the apple event looked like a hollywood movie premier. a-list actors and directors stealing the show, teasing now projects airing exclusively on apple tv plus. there is a he show called the morning show, steven spielberg announcing a series of old stories he will bring to life, oprah announcing two
documentaries exclusively on the streaming service and j.j. abrams announcing a show about musicians in new york and new content for kids, "sesame street" will bring new content to the streaming platform, a part of apple's revamped apple tv app, a partnership they have with he show time, hbo and starz will integrate cable, tv and streaming subscriptions in one platform. there is a new way to pay, the apple card coming this summer, changes the game for how consumers get credit cards. you can apply, have the card loaded in your apple wallet within minutes. the rewards program, you get 2% back on all purchases, 3% back for anything you buy off the apple store and that cash is loaded daily onto your card. lauren and ashley. lauren: hillary, thank you so much. we have dan ives joining us on-set. you heard the rundown. you heard the news yesterday.
are you impressed by apple's pitch? >> in our opinion, i think this is just the first step to a broader strategy. this is really a year and-a-half to two years too late. but ultimately, this is what cook and cupper a cupertino neen the services side. this is the first step to what we believe will be a content acquisition and the strategy we think could get 100 million subscribers over the next three to five years s years. ashley: which stood out that they put out yesterday? >> you've got to look at gaming. if you look at gaming, that's a major -- ashley: they don't have activision, electronic arts, take 2 interactive, all the big guys in that space you don't have. lauren: i'm surprised you said gaming. >> look what fortnite did to the gaming industry. you saw google announce gaming last week. this is a first part of ad brosseabroader bundle on gaming.
ultimately is comes down to the video streaming content service. this is where they're going after hastings and netflix. it's the installed base, and that's why i think right now it's in a ripple effect across the industry. they get it close to the vest in terms of details. they didn't want to give away their game plan. i think over the coming months they'll be giving more of this. lauren: i want to pull up a full screen right now, speaking of the market for video streaming. there are 613 million online video subscribers versus 556 million for cable. more of us are streaming. at what point does the market get saturated. and still, cable is much more profitable. >> it's cord cutting that you're seeing. apple is trying to be a distribution platform as well as original cob at any time. content. the average consumer could see
two or three paid subscriptions per month. what they're going after, this is really for them, you look at services, the valuation of apple, we think 400 to $450 billion is their services. they need to put fuel in the tank. this was the right move for cook and apple and something that will lead the stock higher. ashley: tim cook said the credit card is a game changer. he'll say that about anything new. you have to have an iphone to get the full benefits of the credit card. is this something they should get into? >> it's in the ecosystem. they doubled down with the goldman partnership. it comes down to, they realize what's happening with alibaba in china and ali pay. this is where it's heading in terms of a closed ecosystem. they're taking a step back, streaming, putting a fence around their installed base, the credit cards, the financials, trying to monetize the installed base. lauren: you sound very positive. this one negative in apple's
announcement for you. >> the devil's in the details. it comes down to will consumers sign up and you look at netflix and others, it's going to be an everest climb to go after that market. a billion dollars a year of content is not even a needle-mover. when you look at $20 billion per year that netflix and disney are spending. lauren: dan, thank you very much. ashley: michael avenatti released on bail after being arrested for allegedly trying to extort millions from nike. lauren: let's get th the detais from lauren blanchard. >> reporter: he was taken into custody monday afternoon for two separate cases in new york and l.a. if convicted, he could be sentenced to almost a century behind bars. avenatti out on $300,000 bail monday night, leaving a manhattan courtroom to a crush of media. >> i will be fully exonerated
and justice will be done. >> reporter: federal prosecutors say he told the athletic apparel company, nike, he wanted as much as $25 million, plus more for a client or else he would hold a damaging press conference about an ongoing investigation into ncaa basketball and nike employees. >> as avenatti threatened in one recorded meeting, if the company did not meet his demands, the company might die. >> reporter: the suit alleges there was an unidentified co-conspirator in extorting nike, reportedly high profile criminal defense attorney mark geragos. nike, in a statement saying it firmly believes and ethical and fair play in business and sports and will continue to assist the prosecutors. >> this was an old fashioned shakedown. >> reporter: in los angeles, avenatti is also charged with wire and bank fraud. >> lawyers have a sworn duty to obey the law and to protect their clients.
mr. avenatti has breached that duty. >> reporter: prosecutors say even though the l.a. case was ready a week ago, they decided to wait until they could execute both warrants at the same time for a smoother arrest. in washington, lauren blanchard, fox news. lauren: michael avenatti is issuing a statement, he says, quote, we did nothing wrong and we're entitled to every dollar received and berelli is represented by a person close to trump. he said we never attempted to objection tort nike and when -- extort nike and when the evidence is exposed the public will learn the truth. ashley: fighting escalating between israel and hamas, israeli aircraft bombing targets along the gaza strip. this is hours after hamas announced a cease fire was broken by egyptian mediators. prime minister netanyahu is heading back home after cutting
the trip to washington short. the fighting comes after a contested race for prime minister. patrick shanahan will testify before the house armed services committee to you day, a day after notifying congress he will divert as much as $1 billion to stop building president trump's border wall. the house and senate voted to overturn trump's declaration of a national emergency to use construction money to fund the wall. trump vetoed the bill. the trump administration's legal battle against p obamacare is heating up. the department of justice announcing it is siding with a district court ruling that found the affordable care act was unconstitutional. the doj says the court's decision should stand as it works its way through the a appeals process while the trump administration says it will ask a court to throw the entire health law out. with lyft's ipo around the corner, rival uber is making a
multibillion dollar investment in the middle east. they will spend $3 billion for the biggest ride hailing app based in dubai, coming ahead of uber's ipo which could happen in april. easter right around the corner and the cadbury bunny is out of a job. what? the english bulldog has become the new cadbury bunny. the dog is henry, who won the sweet deal over 4,000 competitors. he looks thrilled. including a llama and a horse who also competed. you'll start to see him in ads starting next month and that's a complete look at news including henry. lauren: if you looked to the right you saw the cotton tail. futures chopping trading yesterday, now up arrows across the board. another blow for theresa may as the u.k. parliament seizes control of brexit. what it means for theresa may and the future of great britain. would you let a robot decide

sashley: despite the brexit chaos, the ftse is slightly higher. the cac and dax are slightly lower in germany. more setbacks for theresa may in the ongoing saga of the u.k.'s exit from the european union. >> mr. speaker, i continue to believe the right path forward is for the united kingdom to leave the e.u. as soon as possible with a deal now on the 22nd of may. it is with regret that i have had to conclude that as things stand, there is not sufficient support in the house to bring back the deal for a third meaningful vote. ashley: well, as you can see, theresa may giving up on a deal
for now, parliament voting to take control of the exit by calling for indicative votes to see if there are any options that lawmakers can agree on, including the possibility of preventing brexit all together. joining me now is james kar a affano. thank you for joining us. okay. it continues to go on and on. now we have the mps taking control of the agenda. they're going to have a series of indicative votes to see if they can agree on something. but it's not binding. and theresa may doesn't have to act on whatever they come up with. so what's the point? >> well, it does kind of seem like the never-ending story. every time we do these interviews we're back where we started. this is a problem. if there was a path forward, other than the path of brexit, you would think that parliament would have figured that out long ago. so i think honestly the most likely scenario today is a hard
brexit, an exit without a deal on april 12th. i think that's still valid. ashley: that's interesting. as for theresa may, a lot of questions about her future. is there much point her quitting now, at this stage of the game? i'm not sure who else could come in and do anything. you say a hard brexit becoming more likely. we hear all sorts of horrible predictions of what happens if that in fact is the result. but will it be that bad for the u.k.? >> i don't think so at all. i mean, we've been studying this issue for many years and the reality is, the e.u. is prepared for a hard brexit. they've been planning on this for some time. the u.k. has been planning on this. to me, this is like y2k, it will happen, we'll wake up the next morning and drive on. ashley: mps don't want to leave the e.u. in the first place and there's a sense that they're going to prevent the hard brexit from ever happening. can they do that? >> well, that's a really interesting question. if you look at the members of
parliament and how they voted, how the british people voted, the parliament is by and large pro staying in the e.u. but the problem is, there's not a path really forward for that. there's no coalition that really can support a legitimate legislative strategy that can actually stand. may, look, whether we like her or not, she's planning on staying. it doesn't seem anybody can oust her. she will probably likely see through the decision in april. but i think by the end of the year, i think most people think she'll have left. ashley: we'll still be talking about it and james, i'm sure you'll be back and we'll be talking about brexit for some time to l come. but james, thanks for joining us early this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. lauren: let's take a look at futures at this hour. we have up arrows across the board, dow gaining 72 points, a quarter of 1%, similar percentage gains for the nasdaq and the s&p this morning. still ahead, as more offices are losing the jacket and tie,
workers are opting for much more casual clothes. but can the retail industry follow suit on the growing trend? get it. ashley: very good. lauren: i'd love to see you come in business casual. and dominos, they're upping their delivery game, the new way they're trying to get their pizza to your house before you even pull in the driveway. sign me up. we'll be right back. ♪ stirring the pot,. ♪ pounding out the dough. ♪ his brother left with his girl.

than business. some retailers not having it. ashley: the dutch parliament once voted that the tie was useless. that was many years ago. they don't have to wear it apparently. i'm all for it. tractracee carrasco joins us tol us the trend is changing. tracee: men are not buying suits as much. retailers are trying to adapt. recently, joseph a. bank, they are known for theirs suits, they started running commercials featuring khakis, sports coats and jeans. they want men to know they're more than just suits so they're going towards the casual direction. same goes for the brand's sibling store, men's warehouse, they're noticing the same thing. sales last quarter fell by 10%. you can see this is impacting r their business many recently we saw that goldman sachs is saying you don't have to wear a suit and tie every day. we're seeing this trend. lauren: i like an open collar
with a pocket square. that's kind of my look. ashley: i can't pull that off. lauren: we should try that tomorrow. ashley: this story is fascinating. they say robots are going to take over the world some day. i feel like they already have. now they're in the courtroom. what's that about? tracee: in a astone ya of all places. they're trying to implement more artificial intelligence, more machine learning, things like that, because they say they want to make the government leaner. they're starting with one pretty ambitious initiative in the courtroom. they want robot judges. so these robot judges will adjudicate small claims disputes and they're hoping that this will clear up a backlog, free up some clerks and judges. you upload the documents and the evidence, the a.i. will go through it, give a ruling, and if you don't agree you can dispute it with a human judge. that's one instance of something they're doing.
they're also doing something where they're collecting resumes of people who have been laid off and they're distributing them to companies who may match up with your skills. lauren: right. tracee: they're trying to do different things. ashley: trying to replace judge judy is what they're doing. lauren: i can see bringing more lawsuits in the end, leav, leavt up to a.i. anyway, not difficult to order pizza. now it's even easier at one chain. tracee: the.tracee: dominos we sure you can order a device from any device you own including their car. there's a new app that will allow you to order a pizza through the infotainment system in your car. it does not have to be tethered to a smartphone. so you can place the order, you can also, if you don't want to do it through the app, you can call, if your order is more complex. you can track the progress of your order. you can place the order as you're going home from work. ashley: what a time to be
alive. lauren: no excuses not to order the pizza. thank you very much. ashley: now that the mueller investigation is over, thankfully, could it help give president trump the upper hand in trade talks with china. we'll talk about that. and the only guarantees in life are death and taxes. we know that. but what happens when the two mix? why 500 dead people got $42 million thanks to social security. lauren: it's just raining money. ashley: that's a grave miss thamistake.you are watching "fb" ♪ going up to the spirit in the sky. ♪ going off to the spirit in the u sky. ♪ that's where i want to go . c, so you only pay for what you need. nice! but uh, what's up with your partner? oh! we just spend all day telling everyone how we customize car insurance because no two people are alike, so...
meanwhile, let's take a look at what happened in asia after the big selloff yesterday, a little better today, the nikkei up 2%, the shanghai is pointing slightly lower. lauren: that could tell us something about the trade negotiations because president trump is set to meet with members of congress today to discuss trade as treasury secretary steven mnuchin and trade representative robert lighthizer head to china for more talks at the end of the week. joseph mirerik is the director of research at the conference board. he joins us now. joe, good morning. do you see the two sides making real progress here? >> this is a difficult negotiation. if we were just talking about the level of tariffs, it would be an awful lot easier. but at this point, it looks like both sides are seeing the consequences for their economies and they're going to want a deal. lauren: the consequences for the economies, negative, i'd say for china and for the u.s. here, so doesn't that bring them to the negotiating table to actually hammer out a deal? >> that's the motivation at this
point. it's going to be getting stronger as time goes by. the consequences are getting worse. lauren: is the deck cleared now for the u.s. in driving a hard bargain now that the mueller report is out and its is a very favorable report for president trump, does that help in his ability to get more extracted from china in these negotiations? >> it probably takes some of the concern on the u.s. side a off oside off ofthe table. the chinese could look at a president under investigation and say a that he needs a deal badly so we'll drive a harder bargain. there's no question i don't think that this makes the u.s. a stronger negotiator. lauren: the chinese seem to be perturbed that you can say we want our cake and we want to eat it too, that we're trying to get as much as we can concession-wise from beijing but we're going of to keep the tariffs on. how does that strategy play out?
>> i would imagine p it would make china a more resolute negotiator. the tariffs were put on in the first place to try to motivate negotiation and a deal. i do not see the chinese looking kindly on the notion that the u.s. gets concessions and gets to keep its tariffs in place. lauren: you have a lot of side stories playing in here, joe. you have china buying from boeing rival a airbus, placing a $35 billion order. you have everything going on with huawei and a 5g and over the weekend two american war ships in the strait of taiwan. how do all those side stories play in? >> it certainly makes things more complex and in some sense to the extent that it interferes with getting down to the issues, it may make the negotiations a lot harder. you would prefer to have folks
looking at the trade issues alone and trying to resolve them. that's complex enough. lauren: do we get a deal, yes or no, joe? >> yes, we can get a deal. we should get a deal. if we don't, the consequences for both economies will be adverse. lauren: joe, thank you so much for coming on this morning. >> thank you. ashley: economic reports out today and this week could confirm concerns about slowing u.s. economic growth. john layfield, fox news contributor, joins us now with his take. great to see you, john, out in beautiful esponito. it's gorgeous out there. let's talk about the economic forecast as we go forward. certainly the markets have been telling us and the so-called experts that things are slowing down, that global slowdown has caught up with the united states. has the market reaction been a little overdone? >> i don't think so. there's a lot of uncertainty. and it is bermuda, british
overseas territory, we're very concerned about what's going on with the brexit right now and how passports, it will affect bermuda citizens. ashley: good point. >> it's hard to say market fears are overblown. you had a projection of corporate earnings growth of 8% this past quarter and so far they've come in around 17%, it's double. we are going to see a recession, there's no doubt about that. economies and trees don't grow to the sky. the question is when. you're seeing data coming out of germany that's worrisome. you're seeing data coming out of china that's worrisome. you're also seeing positive things. that's what happens when you have an older economy that is still carrying on the bull market that you know is going to end some time but you're not sure when. ashley: consumer sentiment is important to the u.s. economy. we know that. it's a consumer-driven economy. a recent fox news poll showed that 43% of voters and those who responded feel nervous about the economy, that number is up, it hit a high point. what's causing the nervousness?
i thought unemployment was terrific. people are hiring. they can't find enough people to fill the jobs they have. where's the nervousness coming from? >> i think it's macro things, ash, i think it has to do a lot with a lot of people starting to run up for president. any time you have an incumbent presidency that's being defended, you have the opposition party coming out, they're going to do everything they can to undermine what the consumer sentiment is, because that's how they're going to get elected. i think there is some potential problems out there. when you talk about brexit and the trade war. i think one thing that was taken off the table was the mueller investigation when you see the president -- nobody in his inner circle was indicted as far as the last part of the investigation. i think that's big to have that taken off the table. ashley: you know what, john, we know the rest of the world is slowing down. as you mentioned, germany and europe, we see what's going on in china and japan. doesn't the money still come here? because we're still the best came in town? >> spot on, ashley, in my opinion. i think it's the only place to
be is the u.s. market right now. you look at what's going on in the rest of the world, you look at the potential fallout with whatever happens with brexit, the e.u. could break up. that pou portends a bad investmt in europe. if you look at 8% corporate earning growth, that's not falling off a cliche. wcliff.we're still the best econ the world to invest in. it just could be slowing. ashley: indeed it could. john, thank you for joining us very early this morning. we appreciate it. lauren: let's get to some other headlines making news this tuesday morning. ethiopia's transport ministry says it is very likely a preliminary report could be released this week on the boeing 737 max 8 crash. meanwhile, the u.s. department of transportation says it's creating a special committee to review the faa's safety approval process for the jet. the latest sign of stepped up scrutiny on the grounded planes.

countless improper payments made between the 1970s and 2016 in three states. at least one person has pleaded guilty to theft in relation to the fraud. i'm sure there's a lot more thefts than that. ashley: even when you're dead you get audited. i'm just saying. coming up, the mueller report may be wrapped up. now both sides of the aisle are threatening more probes, more investigations. is that the right move for either side with the 2020 race right around the corner? we'll get into that. and would you give your child a credit card? >> whose credit card did this go on? >> no, no, no, you are never wearing those. over my dead body and my credit cards won't work if i'm dead. lauren: they might. ashley: you never know. they're not even in middle school yet so why are thousands of parents giving 8-year-olds credit cards. could be a recipe for disas tear. details coming up on "fbn: a.m." ♪ i want money. ♪ lots and lots of money.

sooner, a lot quicker. there are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things. i would say treasonous things against our country. >> i think that mueller report was clear, the president's not exxon exonerated. lauren: joining me now is former obama campaign regional field director, robin byro as well as the chairman of the committee to defend the president, ted harvey. ted, robin, thank you for joining us. >> thanks forking havin for hav. lauren: ted, let me begin with you. you have your opinion of the president and no matter what, the opinions don't seem to change here. >> i think what we have seen is that the democrats and the media and our intelligence community did everything they possibly could to undermine the trump candidacy and undermine the trump administration and there needs to be a reckoning for that. i believe this is the greatest scandal in our nation's history and we need to get to the bottom of that and people need to pay a
price for literally weaponizing our intelligence community to try to take down a dually elected president. lauren: where are the apologies, can we expect any a apologies, robin? >> you know, the apologies, frankly, need to come from both ends. with all due respect to my friend ted, here, the president has absolutely gone after the people investigating him. look, they were tasked with just checking to see russian interference in our elections. they did that. that served their country honorably. they got those 36 indictments. they drained the swamp, in my opinion, and they did a solid job. you know, the president, i never expected him to be indicted. it would have been illegal for them to have done so. this worked out exactly as it needed to. i hope we can get down to brass tax and get bipartisan things done together to serve americans. and with all due respect. lauren: ted, how do you get bipartisan anything when the
investigations only continue? now, ted, you have democrats not satisfied with the vindication of the president and the collusion charge with russia. and you also have republicans saying well, let's continue these investigations, let's look into the obama administration and their use of surveillance on the donald trump campaign. >> well, i think robin's right about the democrats, are they going to try to unify with the president and move forward on positive things with the president or are they going to continue this ridiculous facade that they've been pushing for the last two years, that there was russia collusion. everybody knows there's not russia collusion. mueller came out and said there's not russia collusion. yet they still want to ru with t for political gain, the reason why they run the house in the 2018 election is because 50% of the american thought there was collusion when there wasn't. there has to be a an investigation into what happened with the fraudulent fisa
warrants and everything that went from that, whether it was comey leaking to the press that led to the mueller investigation. there was leaking throughout the intelligence community. we need to get to the bottom of it. lauren: i want to back up to something you said about there being a political gain, ted. a fox news poll asks the chance that something in the mueller report could change your mind about president trump, 41% said no, there's no chance. so robin, play this out in 2020 from the democratic side for me. >> democratic side, we've got to be careful. i sincerely believe that joe biden was thinking that this was going to go a different way and that's why he was waiting to announce. democrats need to be careful with how we go forward. i think the message needs to be that it's time to get down to business, period. work across aisles, however we can, and we do need to call for the full report, just to regain
trust in the system and the president i think he needs to put his kind of -- he's out for vindication now. it didn't look too good with the 36 indictments, more than any u.s. president. but let's put it behind us and see what we can possibly get done together. that's what americans want. that's why this president, the anti-politician was put in place. >> nice talking points. you can't talk about 36 indictments that had nothing to do with the president or his campaign. not one of them did. there were 36 indictments that had to do with russians, that had to do with people that had crimes committed years before they ever worked with the president, none of it had to do with the president or his campaign. lauren: we've got to end it there, though. robin, save your response for another time. we would love to hear it. ted harvey, robin byro thank you very much. ashley: up next, breaking news in the sports world this morning, why a former usc
