6:01 am
♪ i don't want to think anymore. ♪ i left my head and my heart on the dance floor. ♪ i don't want to talk any more. ♪ i left my head and my heart on the dance floor. ♪ maria: markets are searching for direction after this long holiday, memorial day weekend. futures indicating a mixed open this morning. dow futures down 3 points, s&p futures down 2 and three quarters, nasdaq futures are up 3 points after stocks finished higher on friday on hopes of improved u.s.-china relations ahead of the june g-20 summit. that's where president trump said he will meet with china's xi-jinping. the president made a visit to japan over the weekend. in a meeting with shinzo abe, president trump discussed the
6:02 am
state of u.s.-china trade as well. >> we're not ready to make a deal. we're taking in tens of millions of dollars in tariffs. and that number could go up very, very substantially, very easily. but i think some time in the future, china and the united states will absolutely have a great trade deal. china is subsidizing a lot of industry because foolishly some people said that the american taxpayers paying the tariffs of china. it's not that way. they're paying a small percentage but our country is taking in billions and billions of dollars. businesses are leaving china by the hundreds, by the thousands, going into areas that are nontariffed including the united states, by the way. but they're going to different parts of asia. vietnam, frankly japan, but they're going to a lot of places but they're also coming to the united states because people don't want to pay the tariff. and if you look, there is no tariff to pay. all you have to do is move your
6:03 am
company to the united states. there is no 25% tariff. maria: the president is en route back to the united states this morning. joining me now is ubs financial services private wealth advisor, alle mccarthy. how important is the china deal for these markets? >> it's the single thing weighing on the markets. there is reason to believe that the china trade deal is a reflection also of the broader protectionism in the global economy, is actually feeding into some of the numbers we've seen recently, last week in manufacturing, there are negative numbers. the question is, is that a reflection of what's happening in the u.s. economy or is it a reflection of companies that have been dealing with the overhang of potential tariffs and protectionism, trying to plan ahead in terms of their supply chain and order management. maria: how does the backdrop feel to you, the broader economy? >> the broader economy still feels good. we had probably the most
6:04 am
difficult first quarter we've seen in a while, second quarter is already showing signs of picking up. ubs has a target of 3% earnings growth this year, 7% next year. so although we're going less quickly than we did in sort of the steroid pace we've had in the last few years that still puts us as trend or above. obviously, whether you're talking about the interview over the weekend with huawei or whether you're talking about the way u.s. companies are managing their supply chain, this is a big deal. it's a big deal for investors. it's a big deal for ceos. because without clarity, people are not going to make infrastructure spending decisions going forward and that's why you've seen over the last couple weeks really almost a see-saw day-to-day, depending on twitter feeds around what does the negotiating tactics of the u.s. look like. maria: as we watch the you thei
6:05 am
situation get worse, president trump's remarks were discussed on adding the company to the u.s.-china trade deal. he said, quote, it's a big joke, how are we related to u.s.-china trade. if trump calls, i will ignore him and then to whom who will he negotiate with. he may call but i won't answer, says the ceo of huawei. he said i stole american technologies from tomorrow, the u.s. doesn't even have those technologies. we're ahead of the u.s. if we were behind, there would be no need for trump to strenuously attack us. reuters is reporting that fed ex is apol apologizing for mishandg huawei packages after huawei questioned their relationship with the company. i guess they could use that as leverage, getting mad at fed ex. fed ex is afraid they get booted out of china. >> i think this is part of
6:06 am
the issue. we're not even talking about just people's supply chain here going forward. we're talking about companies being worried about political backlash. and that's in the u.s. and that's overseas. the other thing that i don't think has been talked about as much is the taxes afl tax applye last port of origin. a lot of the technological products have up to 50 component parts. now that we have this global economy and we're talking about the final u.s. part of trade, this is really much bigger than that. we have trump in japan now. we've had conversations about what auto tariffs with japan and the e.u. look like. we're close to getting nafta 2. so there are a lot of components of this and each one creates an additional level of uncertainty that ceos need some clarity for in order to push forward and get to that 7% growth number we're talking about. maria: you don't think we're
6:07 am
going to have a robust market reaction until we've got the certainty on trade? >> i don't think so. i think people are putting plans in place. you hear different companies talking about being able to take parts of their supply chain either to other places in asia or back into the u.s. but i think until we have some clarity, a and quite frankly i think we're not going to have clarity until the g-20. i think you're going to continue to see this positioning until you have the two leaders in the same place at the same time. we at ubs really believe that both leaders have an imperative to get something on the books and move forward. we have an election in this country and we think that the administration is going to want to be able to continue to talk about a strong and growing economy. it seems that the administration is -- and th the market is happy with what used to be the biggest overhang at the end of last year, the fed and how doveish will they be. now we've moved on to this.
6:08 am
as we go through the election cycle, that's what we think the administration is going to want. we view this as escalating negotiation tactics on both sides. maria: we'll see if the chinese want that too. because they initially had reneged on everything because the chinese had said initially, yes, we'll codify into law that i.p. theft is against the law a and then reneged on that. so what do you want to do as as a client, then, in this environment in the face of all of this uncertainty? are you telling clients to put money to work in stocks? >> we've taken a little off of the u.s. that's more a relative valuation call than it is a call either on china trade or u.s. potential going forward. we have increased our exposure to emerging markets and to japan specifically within that. obviously, that is going to be affecting the magnitude of the short-term call, is going to be affected by some of the fluctuations.
6:09 am
but again, it's more of a relative call and also when you look at china, apart from what we're seeing in trade, they have used all and continue to point towards using a lot of the efforts they have for stimulus in their own economy, to get them back and running and remember back and running for china is 6% or 7% as opposed to back and running for the u.s. is 2% or 3%. maria: we'll be watching. thanks so much. >> thank you. maria: meanwhile, two tornadoes touched down overnight in dayton, ohio. cheryl casone on headlines now. cheryl: maria, good morning. catastrophic damage across ohio and indiana this morning. leaving at least 5 million people without power in ohio. this incredible photo shows a car wrapped around a light post after the storm and then captured one of those twisters, monster twisters forming right outside of his home. north of dayton in the city of salena, another twister leveled homes, knocked out power there.
6:10 am
first responders going door-to-door as people are trapped inside their homes. >> they're shaking, head's up against the wall and the wall is shaking back and forth. wind from the tornado is pushing up through the vent into my face and i'm freaking out, sit there. of lasts about 10 to 15 seconds. scary yeast 15 seconds of my life. cheryl: president trump tweeted, spoke with the governor of oklahoma. the federal government and fema are fully behind him and the people of oklahoma. a devastating weather weekend. amazon is possibly giving new york a second look. months after they walked away from the deal to build their headquarters in queens, amazon is reportedly shopping for office space on the west side of manhattan. the new york post is reporting the tech giant has been in talk with owners of two new skyscrapers that are being built on the west side.
6:11 am
and disney's aladdin making a lot of magic at the box office. >> can you make me a prince? >> there's a lot of gray area in make me a prince. i can just make you a prince. >> oh, no. >> you all see my powers? cheryl: the live action remake earned $113 million over the holiday weekend, the fifth highest memorial day weekend ever. "pirates of the carribean" holds the record. john wick pulled in millions over the weekend, the franchise's top grossing film. it keeps on going. there's the weekend box office numbers. maria: quick break and then a possible blockbuster deal in the auto industry, fiat chrysler is proposing a merger with renault to create one of the largest automakers in the world. that's what nissan wanted to do. we'll talk about it coming up. the tsa cashes in, making use of

maria: welcome back. we've got a big show this morning. coming up, former nebraska senator, bob carey is here this morning. former white house trade official, clete williams is joining us. retired general jack keane is here along with the co-founder of petrone spirits is here. we have a big couple hours coming up. we kick off with this, a major auto merger proposed, fiat chrysler is proposing a tie-up with renault. the deal would create the world's third largest automaker by production, behind volkswagen and toyota. joining the conversation, dagen
6:16 am
mcdowell, mitch rochell and former white house correspondent ronica cleary. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. maria: interesting proposition from fiat this morning, given the fact that that's what nissan wanted to do. that's one of the reasons that carlos ghosn was imprisoned for so long. he's out on bail, as we know. would this fly even though nissan and renault had all been clinched a deal? dagen: it could fly. auto mergers historically have been hit or miss. if you look back at daimler owning chrysler, that was a disaster. but i'll point to peugote bought opal from general motors in europe and has turned around that brand. with th the merger of fiat and renault, that potentially puts a lot of other automakers at a disadvantage. i'll look at ford. one of the things driving the merger is because there's so
6:17 am
much focus and there's so much money required for electric vehicles, self-driving cars, in-car connectivity, things like that, that you're seeing a lot of potential partnerships like the new mobility, trying to combat, say, an uber. you've seen a lot of partnerships come together. volkswagen and ford are talking about sharing technology. volkswagen, daimler and ford have teamed up together to build a super charger network in europe that would be one of the reasons behind this combination of fiat and renault. maria: renault and fiat would -- are two weaker players relative but if they got together, where does that leave the relationship with nissan? because right now nissan and renault share certain business lines. they have a partnership together. that would -- i would argue that would weaken nissan, quite considerably as well.
6:18 am
>> it's possible this is happening while auto sales are dropping in the united states. a autos, 2017, 2018, dropped 13.1%. this is happening, i think these companies are getting together to try to be relevant in a marketplace that's shrinking. maria: auto sales in china, what were they down, 17% last quarter. >> right. >> that's more of a function of their economy. i think here in the united states it's a function of a lot 0of things. light trucks are on the up-tick. a lot of that has to do with tax reform because of the incentives for small businesses to make investments in equipment. dagen: and we should point out, the chicken tax, that's a 25% tariff on imported light trucks into the united states. that still gives not just the american automakers in the u.s., but any company that makes those suvs and light trucks in the u.s., that gives them an advantage here at home, like bmw for example makes many of the
6:19 am
suvs down in south carolina and that's one of the reasons. so if they really want to make great in-roads in light trucks and suvs in the u.s., expect them to have to start making them here. maria: that's what the president's saying. if you don't like the tariffs, move operations out of china. >> with the electronic and autonomous cars, i thought of the presidential candidates, andrew yang, who made the fear of electric and autonomous vehicles, impact that industry. it may force the president to weigh in on the issue and make that a bigger part of the conversation. dagen: would it make andrew yang relevant in this conversation? no. >> he's going to hope so. dagen: rainbows and unicorns i don't think would make andrew yang relevant. maria: it's all really good points. we'll watch that. right now, just a proposition in terms of the merger. coming up, big shakeup in european elections, polls show a
6:20 am

maria: welcome back. divisions in the european union, this weekend's e.u. he'll election showing a growing turn against the establishment. a greater number of euro skeptics holding onto seats in the e.u. parliament. theresa may announced last week she will step down next month. joining us right now is the washington examiner editorial director, hugo gerdin. thanks for joining us.
6:24 am
first, your reaction to what took place in europe over the weekend. >> the establishment party got hit. in italy, the northern league came up strongly and is now the biggest party. the biggest one, though, of course was in britain where nigel ferage and the brexit party became the biggest party in britain in the european elections. so there was a pretty strong move across the e.u. against the establishment parties. a lot of that was on the nationalist one, in britain and in france and italy, there is also a rise on the part of the left with the greens party doing well. maria: is there any clarity now, given we've seen results in germany, how does that impact the united states? >> you know, the united states has traditionally wanted a united europe and they thought the e.u. project is a good
6:25 am
thing. i have been always -- i have always suspected that that's a mistake because the e.u. was from its outset something of an anti-american organization. and i think that the results will not be displeasing, at least to president trump and his administration, because what they're seeing is a surge in the kind of voting that helped bring president trump to power in the united states. certainly that's the case in britain. that's certainly the case in hungary, in italy, and to some extent in france, although i would argue the national front is not a conservative party. it's as much left as it is right. >> hu.>> we're hearing about thw rise in socialism. how did those parties nare in thfare inthe european elections. >> the coshists have bee been-socialists have been part of the main centrist block for a long time. there's been a lot of
6:26 am
cooperation between the sort of center and soft right parties like angela merkel's and the socialists. so the socialists did not do very well in the e.u. elections. really what's happened is that the parties on the margins have been successful. socialism was never regarded or has not for many decades been regarded as an extreme position in europe. they were the governing party often in europe. maria: let's turn to 2020 in the u.s. new data from the yale model for predicting presidential election results out showing that president trump winning re-election in a solid victory. 56% of the popular vote, the yale model measures incouple in, gdp growth and inflation. your reaction? and who would you say on the left is viable in terms of coming close to beating president trump? >> i think first of all, i think it would be highly unlikely that president trump will get 56%. there are a lot of things that are going in his favor.
6:27 am
most particularly, the economy, employment. in some ways one would expect his numbers to be higher in polls because of the successes he's had in the economy. i think he perhaps lowers his approval ratings because of the way he behaves. but he has a strong position as incumbents generally do and historically they enjoy about a 5 percentage point advantage going into their second term. on the other side, joe biden is maintaining a lead. he's got basically double the support that his nearest rival, bernie sanders has. and he's keeping a low profile. he doesn't want to put his foot in it as he sometimes does when he speaks to public. he wants to stay above the fray. he must be regard's as the favorite to win the democratic nomination. maria: he's only done one rally. he's keeping on the low profile. go ahead. >> he's keeping a low profile. he doesn't want to mess it up. he wants to run as the guy who
6:28 am
was vice president to obama, not as the joe biden that people knew before. maria: hugo, good to see you. thanks so much. coming up u.s.-iran relations. we'll have details next. tsa money maker, security officials raking it in with a lot of money found in security bins. what they're doing with it and how much it all totaled last year. wait until you hear it. back in a minute. ♪ only in america. ♪ dreaming in red, white and blue. ♪ only in america. ♪ can we dream as big as we want to.

6:33 am
tuesday morning. our topl top story this half ho, u.s.-iran tensions. president trump stopped short of suggesting regime change. >> i'm not looking to hurt iran at all. i'm looking to have iran say no nuclear weapons. we have enough problems in this world right now with nuclear weapons. no nuclear weapons for iran. i think iran has tremendous economic potential and i look forward to letting them get back to the stage where they can show that. i think iran -- i know so many people from iran. these are great people. it has a chance to be a great country. with the same leadership. we're not looking for regime change. i just want to make that clear. we're looking for no nuclear weapons. maria: as you heard, the president said that a deal with iran is still possible. joining me right now is retired general, general jack keane. thanks for joining us.
6:34 am
>> good to see you. maria: what is your expectation for iran? you i mean, the president said just there a moment ago, i don't know if it was a slip of the tongue or what, but he said we are willing to make a deal with iran. we just don't want any nuclear weapons. so what might a deal look like? >> well, first of all, he got out of the jcpoa or the nuclear deal in 2015 because he thought it was a lousy deal. anybody that is advising him wil tell you if you've got a lousy deal, replace it with a better one. hiintention has always been, to impose a better deal on iran. and that's what he's been doing since last year when he walked away from it. here's what needs to be done. the sanctions that h he is em posing on iran are -- imposing on iran is due to the aggressive behavior in the region, supporting hamas, firing 400
6:35 am
rockets intos israel, the hezbollah encroaching on israel, supporting the militia in iraq, where they forced the closure of our consolate. they fired a rock rocket at our embassy in baghdad. recently, it's believed by the countries in the region, they sabotaged two tankers in the gulf of owe ma -- oman. iran's behavior hasn't change despite the sanctions. we've have to stay on top of them. the nuclear weapons wouldn't be as big of an issue if iran wasn't a rogue state. that's the central issue. their behavior in the region. maria: the president's well aware of this. let's move on to north korea, speaking of rogue. recent missile tests there as well catching the attention of the world. while in japan, president trump was asked about the recent launches. listen to his answer. >> he believes like i do that north koreas has tremendous
6:36 am
economic potential. like perhaps few other developing nations anywhere in the world. and i think that he is looking to develop that way. he knows that with nuclear that's never going to happen. only bad can happen. he understands that. he is a very smart man. he gets it well. >> you're not bothered by the small missiles? >> no, i'm not. i am pursuing that. maria: japan's prime minister said the tests violated the security council resolution. he called them extremely regrettable. how do you see it? >> i agree with the prime minister on that, prime minister sabe. those missiles can raze japan. i think what the president is saying is that kim is trying to get our attention by escalating, if you remember a few weeks ago a small anti-tank weapon, new weapon, then a rocket and then a rocket of greater range, a missile following that and now a short range ballistic missile,
6:37 am
all that escalation is designed i think to leverage president trump to a assist kim in his negotiations. he walked out with an empty deal the of last time. he didn't get sanction relief. that's what he's trying to get here. it is a serious violation of u.n. resolution, the president doesn't take it that serious because he thinks it's a negotiating ploy. maria: so it feels like over the weekend it was this growing italian issue was the main macro story. there was a comment from one player that says he's not in favor of sanctions for italy. but there are issues around trade. so it's not just u.s.-china trade we're worried about. the president is trying to do a trade deal with japan. he needs to do a deal with europe. how are you seeing all of these trade uncertainties, general, because i recognize the president likes to brag that we're getting all of this revenue because of the tariffs. but this uncertainty is keeping a hold on markets progressing.
6:38 am
>> yes, i think most of us looking at that, even from a national security perspective, we recognize that the strong economy actually provides us significant amount of impact on national security. i mean, the engine of capitalism which drives our economy clearly helps to provide us with the kind of military capability that we need and the trump defense buildup is essential to dig us ott of the hole that we've been in for the last eight to 10 years. most of us looking at it from the lens of national security would like to see the trade and tariff disputes to end as soon as possible, to make sure this economy is sustained. maria: i mean, we'll see what happens. but the u.s. -- the e.u. parliamentary elections also i guess weren't as bad as some people thought. what about the president's visit to the u.s.s. wasp, on-board the president said the new electric catapult design is all wrong.
6:39 am
polling the crowd to see if they like it or the steam system that's been used for years. watch this. >> they have a $900 million cost overrun on this crazy electric catapult. i said what was wrong with steam? i would like to know. all of the folks that know exactly what i'm talking about, the cat put system -- catapult or electric? ready? steam? [ cheering and applause ] >> electric? he works for the enemy. maria: the president having fun in japan. general, your reaction. >> he's putting himself in the middle of a dispute. a lot of military technology is one of a kind technology, not found in the private sector. it takes years to work out because it's so complicated. our history is complicated new technology, we have problems with it, but we sort it out.
6:40 am
i say stick with the new electric magnetic technology. it's considerably safer, enables us to get planes off the deck quicker, enables us to get light and heavy planes off the deck. steam is not as reliable, it's more dangerous, we get sailors hurt and doesn't have the flexibility dealing with drones. i wish the president would back off, let the navy solve the technology problems. they will solve it. maria: i've spoken with secretary mike pompeo a number of times about china, really focused on the national security threat and the risks around national security as relates to china. give me in a nutshell your thoughts on china and what they're doing in terms of their own military, trying to compete with the u.s., general. >> first of all, they have two thrusts. one is the economic thrust which you're aware of that you see as a predator around the world, taking advantage of nations, making major investments. the second is they are growing quickly as the largest military
6:41 am
in the world and also being technologically capable to the united states. they caught us in a lot of the advantages that we have had. they clearly have a military capability that is beginning to dominate the pacific region. and that's what clearly is on their minds and replace the united states as the global power in the world today. it is their military that's going to help them do that as well as their huge economic engine. maria: which takes you book the south china -- back to the south china sea to see the bullying going on, the most recent provocations. general jack keane joining us in washington. a deadly stabbing in japan, cheryl casone with that story now in headlines. cheryl: yeah, maria. a man allegedly carrying two kitchen knives attacked commuters waiting at a bus stop outside of tokyo. an 11-year-old girl and 39-year-old man were killed. the assailant also confirmed dead by a self-inflicted stab
6:42 am
wound to the neck. 13 other people were injured. police are looking for a motive in the attack. the first major civil trial against prescription opioid makers begins today. oklahoma is suing johnson an beyond son. they allege they helped ignite a public health crisis a that killed thousands of oklahoma residents. teva pharmaceuticals and perdue pharm a a have settled with the state. an epilepsy drug containing cannabis has been approved by the fda and cleared for air travel. tsa allows the drug onto flights. they stress the possession of marijuana remains illegal under federal law. the tsa collected nearly $1 million in loose change in its bins. every year, basically. a recent proposal from the department of homeland security
6:43 am
asks the tsa for loose change to be used in border security if the funding request isn't approved. jfk in new york collected 72,392. it's not just loose chains, it's wallets with large bills in them. you know you've done it, you walked away and said i'm missing something crucial. my wallet. maria: it's in the bins. thank you, cheryl. >> i would love to know how many iphones and ipads and labtops. maria: that too. >> i would like to think they could return the wallet. your i.d. is in there. don't steal those, t.s.a. your approval rating is low enough. dagen: you can't walk through with your i.d. in your hand, you're not supposed to have anything. by the way, a portion of the security fee that you are charged when you purchase any airline ticket in the united states is diverted, thanks to congress, for budget reduction. it's not even spent airport security. that's how stupid lawmakers are.
6:44 am

maria: welcome back. good tuesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is tuesday, may 28th. your top stories right now. new trade uncertainties, president trump speaking out during his trip to japan. >> they would like to make a deal. we're not ready to make a deal. i think some time in the future china and the united states will absolutely have a great trade deal. we look forward to that. maria: what it means for investors this morning as markets reopen after a long holiday weekend. futures indicate a fractional decline this morning, markets are searching for direction after the holiday weekend. dow futures down 15, s&p down 5 and the nasdaq futures right now down 5 and a quarter. markets closed higher on friday. but were still down on the week,
7:01 am
for the fifth week in a row. the dow friday up 9 a 5 points, s&p was up 3 and nasdaq was up 8 and three quarters points on friday. in europe this morning, markets are lower. take look. fractional moves. fq100 just slipped into pot testifpositiveterritory in lond. the dax index lower by 28. in asia overnight, gains across the board. as you can see there, best performer was china, shanghai composite up two-thirds of 1%. extreme weather to report, tornadoes leaving a trail of destruction across ohio and indiana. plus major flooding concerns. we'll take you live to arkansas coming up this morning. a major auto merger proposed, fiat chrysler proposing a tie-up with renault creating the world's third largest automaker. work burnout and video game addiction concerns, now official i'll kneeses. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, pwc partner, mitch rochell and cleary
7:02 am
strategies president, former white house core upo correspond, ronica cleary. >> we would have thought the market would have been down more on friday. durable goods was a disappointing number. i think the traders didn't notice, left for the weekend. i think trade will start weighing on the economy and start to weigh on the market. maria: there's a lot of uncertainty. we don't know where u.s.-china deal might be or if we will get a deal. the president's trying to get a deal with japan. and now there's new criticisms about leaving tpp, given that china's behavior is what it is and we know that it's not going to be that easy to get a partnership with china. people are wondering did the president make a mistake by walking away from tpp which effectively made china stronger in that region. dagen: i said that when he slapped -- first started slapping tariffs on our trading partners.
7:03 am
because people always give me a lot of heat on social media about, well, what's your plan? what's your idea? it's not my idea. it's the ideas of people who are a hell of a lot smarter than i am who i talk to. that was one of their major sticking points is don't pick fights with china and mexico and our allies with the steel and aluminum tariffs, lock arms with them, go to the world trade oranization and he should have stayed in tpp. that would have given him a lot more leverage over china. but here we are. and this is the strategy and you've got to follow it through. maria: now he's got to do deals with others in the asian region. so that we're not so reliant on china. >> all of this those be considered in the context of his athe tempt to be reelected. because the economy and the stock market are undoubtedly his strengths. he has support, bipartisan support, at least amongst the people, maybe not amongst politicians, for where the economy is. this needs be addressed sooner
7:04 am
rather than later. dagen: despite market action on friday, the dow is down five weeks in a low, the longest losing streak in eight years. apple in particular is down almost 11% in the month of may. that's a big move in one of the most valuable companies in the nation. maria: it sure it. it's a dow component as well. u.s.-china, president trump is now on his way back to washington following a state visit to japan. the trip coming amid heightened tensions over a trade truce with beijing. talks have stalled ahead of the highly anticipated meeting between president trump and xi-jinping, which is expected at the g-20 summit next month. in bilateral meeting with prime minister shinzo abe, in japan, president trump discussed the state of china trade as well. >.joining us now to talk more about that clete williams. thank you for joining us. your reaction to what took place
7:05 am
in japan and how we should be looking at a potential partnership with china. >> yeah, i think that the japan trip was a success for the president and for the administration. i was really pleased to see leading into the trip the deal on beef and i'm glad to hear that both sides want to intensify their discussions. i was listening to the segment before this where you were talking about the importance of working with allies. i agree with you wholeheartedly. i think we need to make progress with japan, with canada and mexico and the usmca and show china a unified front. i think that will make it a lot easier for the united states to get a deal. >> i'm curious to hear your reaction to if there is some sort of strategy behind the president now saying he's not ready to make a deal with china, it seems a little counter-productive. >> i think what the president was signaling was that the united states continues to play the long game, the president feels that the economy is in strong shape and that the united
7:06 am
states can sustain the strategy that it's employing. i think he thinks they can do so more effectively than china can. i think that's what the president is saying. he did also say ultimately he thinks there will be a deal. so i think that context is important. i think the steel and aluminum deal with canada and mexico recently makes a big difference from the u.s. negotiating position. one of the big things that we're facing is retaliation against farmers. there was a lot of retaliation from canada and mexico. that's now off the table. and i hope the administration can pursue a similar deal with the european union. there's a lot of retaliation against u.s. agricultural products from europe. i go back to what you all were saying, which is if the u.s. can work with allies and show a unified front, show china it's just not the united states versus china, i think that we're going to have a lot more progress.
7:07 am
dagen: the usmca is there any indication that speaker nancy pelosi will move this deal? again, the trade negotiators working in the white house worked very hard on that deal and she is intentionally sitting on it. hoping to help the democrats next year. >> i think usmca is a fantastic deal. i don't think there's any other trade agreement that's been negotiated that's more deserving of bipartisan support. if you look at it, if you look at the core democratic constituencies, the core democratic issues, labor, environment, currency, we have strong enforceable provisions for the first time ever in trade agreement. you look at the republican side of things, you look at the provision that's we have intellectual property, breaking down agriculture bears yesterdays, there's great financial services pro provisio. there's excellent provisions on digital trade and you also have autos rules that will bring a
7:08 am
lot more investment into the united states. the conditions are there on the substance for a deal. i think speaker pelosi, i understand she's been having very good open conversations with ambassador lighthizer and i hope that the larger political issues don't get in the way here. when it comes down to substance it's a phenomenal deal. as i mentioned before, i think moving forward on usmca improves the chances for a deal with china and so i really hope there can be more progress in the near term. dagen: i don't believe for a second that the democratic leadership wants to hand president trump a win in any way, shape or form. newt grin give grip says what -- continue grip says what -- newt gingrich says what does form her hand, is the 41 democrats that helped her get her job back, if ththe consistent sitthe constitg their congressman and starting
7:09 am
complaining, that could move the ball. maria: she said she's not bringing it to the floor for a vote just yet. even though it's likely going to pass, if she brings it to the floor. so that's the problem for her. >> i agree with what the former speaker said about really tar targetting democratic congressmen and women who are in the districts that are going to benefit. i went through the list of all the beneficiaries. i think that's important. i also think it's important that the rhetoric here doesn't get too heated between the republicans and democrats because this is a great deal and i think man ambassador lighthizs working really hard with speaker pelosi. we need to let that continue and play out. the trade votes are never easy. >> part of the reason i think democrats were able to take so many heat seats in the house in8 is because they were in districts that were moderate. they were willing to thereon the constituents. i hope the chaos of 2020 doesn't
7:10 am
cloud their judgment and better thinking when it comes to making a decision that would undoubtedly be better for the uniteunited states. maria: now canada is agreeing to it. mexico has agreed. the deal is in place. they've made tweaks in terms of labor. we'll see what the speaker has to say about why she's not bringing it to the floor. then there's huawei, the founder of huawei spoke out for the first time in more than a decade over the weekend. he did an interview with bloomburg. he discussed president trump's remarks on adding huawei to the u.s.-china trade deal. he says this, it's a big joke. how are we related to china-u.s. trade. if trump calls i will i'll nor e him. if he calls me, i may not answer. he doesn't have my number. in regards to i.p. theft. he said i stole the american technologies from tomorrow. the u.s. doesn't even have those technologies. we are ahead of the u.s. if it were behind, there would
7:11 am
be no need for trump to strene strenuously attack us. fed ex is apologizing for mishandling huawei packages. they're basically bullying fed ex probably because of what's happening with huawei and the u.s. how do you see this and obviously there's huawei equipment installed throughout the world, not just in europe and africa but also in rural areas of america as well. >> right. well, there was a lot there. i'll choose to focus on where the huawei ceo said that he would oppose retaliation against apple. i mean, we've always said that huawei on the staff level anyway, we've always said huawei shouldn't be part of the deal. obviously the president is the president and the final decision maker on that. but i do think from a national security standpoint, the u.s.
7:12 am
needs to be careful about allowing huawei equipment to continue o to be installed in te united states. maria: i don't know what huawei is talking about, saying they haven't stolen anything and they stole everything from tomorrow because mitch, i've got a list here of companies that have sued huawei and they've settled with including t-mobile, motorola, cisco, microsoft, intel. the list goes on, about the trade secrets that were stolen from american companies. >> no he question about it. i think the big issue is security. because if huawei becomes ubiquitous around the world and in our country, there's no limit to what intellectual property could further get stolen or trade secrets or just conversations that people are having. maria: we know they're tracking their citizens. are they tracking american citizens as well? >> look, i don't want to get into all the elements of a national security issue. let me just say, i think the evidence is clear that over time there is a track record of concern with respect to huawei's
7:13 am
behavior and i think that's why you see the administration moving as they did to limit their access in the united states. maria: we'll leave it there. thanks so much. >> thanks. maria: coming up, tornadoes ripping through america's hard heartland this morning and over the weekend. millions of people in ohio are waking up without power this morning. then reshaping the auto industry, fiat's proposed merger with renault could make it one of the largest car makers in the world. details coming up. 8 and three quarters percent higher in the premarket. stay with us. ♪ i want you to he know that it's our time. ♪ you and me lead the same life. ♪ i want you to know that i'm all yours. ♪ you and me, we're the same force. ♪ i want you to know that it's a sign.

7:31 am
report just yesterday. watch. >> well, there's never been a president more transparent. the mueller report came out. no obstruction. no collusion. no nothing. it's beautiful report. the democrats cannot understand what happened. they really thought they had some people on their side because as you know the people doing the investigation were 18 extremely angry democrats, many of whom worked for hillary clinton and supported hillary clinton. and bob mueller, i guess you could say he wasn't a friend of mine but he did something that was really the right thing to do. they were very disappointed. they can't get over the fact that never spoke to russia, never dealt with russia, having to do with the subject we're talking about. maria: joining me right now is former u.s. attorney and avenue strategies partner, bo bob summinse. what's your reaction to all of this? here we've got the president still talking, the media, still talking about the mueller report
7:32 am
even though what the president said was true, no collusion. they're trying to i guess muddy the waters because they don't want to see william barr pursue what he said he would, and that is investigating the investigators from the 2016 election. >> yeah, they're trying to stop the attorney general from doing what the attorney general should do and go backwards and try to see what happened in all these investigations because the department of justice lives on its credibility and it has really been tainted by the way the hillary e-mail investigation was conducted, the events that led up to the mueller investigation, and i think there's actually some problems with the mueller investigation. you and i have -- were having discussions, i don't know, 16 months ago, we didn't know what we didn't know. now we know, we were right on point. there was no collusion. why did that investigation take two years? at what point did mueller know
7:33 am
that the investigation was based on false accusations a and why did the investigation keep going so long? maria: yeah. i mean, that's what i was asking right after the mueller report was distributed, because he had to know very soon into it that there was no collusion and yet we didn't know until well after the november elections, the midterm elections. do you think there's going to be accountability here? do you think the impeachment effort will be successful? >> you know, i think the itch impeachment effort will not be successful. there's nothing to impeach him for. i think politically it will be a bad idea. i think the main point is, congress is not doing. maria: yeah. >> we've got so many important problems in this country that congress needs to be addressing. border security is probably at the top of the list. they're choosing to argue over these make believe arguments, first it was collusion.
7:34 am
when that turned out to be a boldfaced lie. then they turned to the attorney general is trying to deceive us which is ridiculous. now they're on some kind of coverup theme. it's all made up. and they're trying to build a smoke screen and they want to try to hurt the attorney general's credibility. i don't think it's going to matter. it would be flies if they get up there and work more than two days a week and actually address some real problems in this country that they need to be addressing. dagen: bud, it's dagen mcdowell. the left wing liberal ill logic in washington seems to be the democrats should start impeachment proceedings in order to then be able to dig up dirt that they could then try to impeach the president with. because again, if they're going to try to impeach him for obstruction of justice, based on the mueller report, do you think they begin impeachment proceedings in the house of
7:35 am
representatives? >> i missed a little of that. i lost your audio for a second. if you're asking me -- dagen: i can repeat it. the ill logic seems to be that they need to begin impeachment proceedings which would give the house democrats more ability and greater investigative powers over the white house and the executive branch so they could dig up dirt on the president to try an impeachment. it's the upside down world of liberal politics. maria: they got their guy already. now they have to find the crime. that's not the way we do things in this country. you find a crime and then you pursue the crime and who committed the crime. that's no wha what we're doing . >> it's been that way from the beginning. it's been that way from the beginning. they kept saying indictments, sealed inindictments. they couldn't tell you what they thought the indictments would be about. they were sure indictments were around the corner. they've never been able to

articulate a crime occurred. i think it's a ridiculous notion. maria: how much resource did robert mueller have? the number of people that he could speak to, the number of agents on the case, the a amount of money, $40 million, he couldn't come up with a judgment? on obstruction? >> he was not limited at all. maria: exactly. >> he had access to -- maria: that's why he got the money, the unlimited resources. >> i can remember being on your show at the time he was appointed and wondering, you know, the president said 18 angry democrats. i think at the beginning it was maybe 14 angry democrats. but my first reaction to that was 14, because we were already seeing that the evidence, that the steele dossier was probably fake and it might just be a nothing burger. why did he need 14 assistants and all those agents to get that started? it seemed to me that two or
7:37 am
three assistant united states attorneys and half dozen fbi agents could have done preliminary work on that and gotten to the bottom of it pretty quick and how did they possibly write a 450 page report and never address the nature and the origin and the credibility of that evidence that started the whole thing. maria: that's what we talked about, two years ago, where we questioned wait a minute, why were they investigating him in the first place and that's what william barr is looking at right now. i'm thrilled that we actually have an a.g. in place who is pursuing the truth. you can't put your finger on the scale when you have this position of power like a handful of people did in fact do at the top of the fbi and the doj. we know that now. >> he'll do it in a nonpartisan way to restore the credible of the doj. he's going to d quietly. they're going to write objective reports. these are tools we have, they're powerful tools, should only be
7:38 am
used in the proper predicate, 23ina proper way. dagen: i have a dumb, basic question, bud, that i want to ask you. because i believe and i don't think this has changed, the john durham review of the investigators and the predicate, looking for any kind of evidentiary basis for the launch of the investigation, it's not technically an investigation yet. so he doesn't have subpoena power at the moment. he doesn't have the power to impanel a grand jury. how quickly could that change? like how does that legally change by the attorney general, bill barr, and john durham? >> i haven't followed his work closely. so i don't know how they're using the grand jury or if they're using the grand jury. but if what you say is correct and they have impaneled grand jury for this purpose, that's a low bar. as soon as they need subpoenas, they can go to the grand jury and ask for them.
7:39 am
but i think that they're going to do a measured analysis of what happened, like they should do. maria: you mentioned -- >> keep their mouths shut and go as far as they need to go. maria: you mentioned what was critical. they used tools that are to be used in terrorism cases. they used extraordinary tools to investigate somebody who they really did not have any reason to do so and they used the highest and biggest, most important tools that the intel industry has and that is wiretapping and informants, putting informants at george papadopoulos and wiretapping of carter page because they were members of the trump campaign or some diss hocampaign--or someho. >> the most important thing in the story is the power that federal law enforcement has to invade your privacy in ways that you -- you may not know they're looking at your bank accounts, at your phone calls and going
7:40 am
out intimidating people. maria: which is now we know trey gowdy dropped the bomb the other day when i had him on my sunday morning futures program, he said there are transcripts of those informants, when the intel guy from italy or downer from the u.k., when they reached out to papadopoulos, there are transcripts that we need to see because it's going to be in those transcripts that will be so obvious that in fact they were nobodies in the scheme of things and should not have been investigated. did you see that the president did declassify certain documents? do you have a sense of what's important about the documents that the president declassified at the end of last week, bud? real quick, before we move on to the border. >> the reaction to him declassifying the documents, my first reaction is they're probably necessary to give access to the inspector general for him to complete his work. that he can't really explain what's happened without the
7:41 am
declassification of some of those documents to explain how they were used and whether they were used wrongfully. that was my first impression. i imagine they're going to be useful in other ways and i hope they're used very responsibly. when we have to restore the credibility of doj, and it is in a shambles right now and the fbi and doj frankly have a culture problem that is not isolated to this investigation. and i hope the attorney general does a very thorough review of doj and how they're handling these investigations. maria: looks like that's why he's got the x on his back for democrats. >> they do not want the investigation to happen. maria: a federal judge temporarily blocked the trump administration's plan to spend bill yofns obillions of defenset dollars on a wall along the southern border. president trump declared a national emergency to get that
7:42 am
money. what's your take on where this stands today. >> >> it's a national emergency in my book. we are being overrun. our resources are being overrun. he took that approach as we all know because congress was immovable and made it a political issue and they didn't want to cooperate. it's outrageous. and there's no american -- i don't care what your political beliefs are -- that should stand by and allow the democrats to not address this problem. it is a national emergency. it's already costing us not only dollars but in our safety and it's going to get worse and we need to address it in a substantial way. so the courts are going to do what the courts are going to do. but the president's in that situation, only because congress is not doing their job. maria: right, right. >> they're not only weaponizing federal law enforcement, they're weaponizing the legislative process. they're not getting their job done. they're just playing politics
7:43 am
24/7. maria: which is in and of itself obstruction. they're obstructing progress because of their inability or unwillingness to address the issues that the american people want them to address so that they're looking a all over the place for a crime around the president which so far they haven't found. bud, it is good to have your insight on all of this. by the way, you said that the situation is overrun. i saw it firsthand. a lot of our border protection guards are actually changing diapers, taking kids to hospitals, because so many kids are coming over the border and they're sick. because they've been on -- they've been walking and hitchhiking with -- >> i hope you go back and expose that. those were great shows. maria: thank you so much. good to see you this morning. thank you. coming up, sports illustrated was sold. details on the iconic magazine's mega deal and then art under the sea, check this out. divers explore a unique museum below the surface. we're taking a look, next.

still under-represented in the fields that make up stem, science, technology, engineering an math. our next guest is trying to change all that. joining us now is the mars generation founder and stem influencer, abigail harrison. it's great to have you here this morning. thanks so much. >> thank you. yeah. maria: your dream is to be the first astronaut to go to mars. why? >> because i think that it's the next step that the united states and the world as a whole needs take and someone needs to be willing to take that step and so from an early age i decided that i had a passion for space travel and i wanted to help push humanity forward in that regard. maria: what do you think you'll see there? >> a lot of rocks. [ laughter ] >> no, but actually my field of study a that i do research in is astro biology. so looking at the possibility of life in space. so with that, i'm hopeful that by putting humans on mars and continuing our research there, we'll find signs of past or present life and it will -- i'm not talking about aliens like we think about that, so not green
7:55 am
and 10 eyes but rather looking for things that are single cellular rather basic but that will allow us to find that first sign of life off of earth. >> a while back, bill marr got criticism to say we don't need to think about mars, we need to think about problems here. what is your reaction to peoplee that have that philosophy. defend why we need to explore places like mars. >> one of the reasons, one of the primary reasons why we need to be going to mars is specifically because of that, because we have so many problems here on earth that need to be addressed and need to be fixed. the way that you fix them is by having these unique solutions and innovations happen. and we only get those by really pushing ourselves, by challenges ourselves. space is the best way to do that, by pushing boundaries, by putting humans in situations that we've never faced before, pushing our limits, trying to do
7:56 am
more, go to the next place, do the next thing, we are forcing ourselves to innovate in order to not only survive but thrive in these environments. and so in doing so, we actually improve life here on earth. it's been shown there's incredible economic stimulus from space travel, incredible technological growth and innovation and it also inspires a generation to believe and to dream and to have a lot of hope and care and love for the planet that we're living on today. maria: great answer. >> thank you. dagen: really quickly, you graduated from wellsly, you said this friday. do you get a job fro with nasa? in layman's terms, how do you get to mars. >> that's a great question. i'm not an astronaut yet. i'm not affiliated with nasa yet. i'll grad wail wit graduate witr graduate degree. after that i'll go on to get my doctorate and then start

8:06 am
moved with china partnership. >> china aseaneded wto 20 years ago, they have been pretty steadily violating since i think pushback is well deserved, we are better off the moment trying to stay united with president trying to get a good trade deal. >> appropriate to push back what if we don't have a deal chinese reneged on everything they initially said they would agree to stopping the test of intellectual property. >> right the key question can you get chinese to agree to multilaterally not just by literally but multilateral agreements not successful getting that done i don't accept the idea look at trade deficit that in and of itself is bad. because i think that is that he personally i don't think bad economics but no question chinese have been stealing from us beginning of us unequal being a access have not been obeying rules of the world trays organization. >> what about about national

8:08 am
that is simply isn't true he will do whatever the chinese government tells him to do xi jinping has more power today than he did when he first became president of china. >> is it i had on a representative from huawei on this program he admitted that yes they have communist party members on the board. >> not just communist party members onboard they will do what chinese government tells them to do no matter what president does no matter what huawei does from national security standpoint we have to assume network is dirty if you are running -- if you are dan coats in charge of intelligence agencies they own lines a much bigger problem i hear the secretary of state talking about this as if a cold war we can have their network our network i don't think that is a good metaphor at all i think you've got significant national security problems i think important to address those, i don't think
8:09 am
you can assume that huawei is some kind of internet public company that won't do what chinese government tells them to do. >> what do we do then? huawei infrastructure is all over europe, huawei infrastructure all over africa there is also huawei infrastructure in rural areas in america. >> part of the problem we are not building our own from your so i think we have to address the problem, both with offense mechanism building our own making certain that they obey international rules, but i don't think you can ever get to a point where you can assume if you are -- if you are in charge of national security for united states you can assume that network is clean it is never going to be cloon you got to encrypt solve promise for presumption you've got a dirty network. >> president in japan yesterday made it clear he wants iran to have now nuclear weapons said yesterday stopped short of suggesting regime change in iran watch this. >> and i am not looking to hurt iran at all i am looking to have iran say no nuclear
8:10 am
weapons we have enough problems in this world right now with nuclear weapons no nuclear weapons for iran i think we will make a deal i think iran again, i think iran has tremendous economic possible. and i look forward to letting them get back to the stage, where they can show that i think iran i know so many people from iran, these are great people. has a chance to be a great country with same leadership we're not looking for regime change i just want to make that clear. we are looking for no nuclear westbound. >> -- weapons. >> reaction president said deal with iran possible we've seen provocations. >> first of all, he sounds a little like president obama just there. look. i think the bigger problem with iranians not nuclear weapons i would like to get to a point confidence not developing nuclear weapons a biggest prop in my view are

8:12 am
codifying usmca making sure that passes? holding strong against china, iran as well? >> this is going to be a longer around those than you want, first of all, it is -- it is basically nafta modified at margin it wasn't i voted for it, it is very difficult to vote for trade deals like that if you are a democrat because you've got organized labor working people see trade deals as being bad he know many things about nafta, there is no question that is true, it is a very, very difficult vote, and when president described as worse trade deal ever, you know wow we are going to get a revolutionary agreement we got small modification in the agreement would i vote for it yes would i vote for it but it is a very difficult vote -- >> what i am saying there are real important issues to get done, this congress is more interested in subpoenaing the president. >> i don't think that is accurate i think no question that -- on the house, guys have been elected to
