cheryl: iran has set the clock, the country says it's on track to exceed limits in stockpiled uranium set in the 2015 nuclear deal in just 10 days. thomas calendar, a senior research fellow for defense programs at the heritage foundation, this new news out of iran, i'm not sure the u.s. should be worried, seems more like the europeans should be concerned right now. >> thank you for having me on this morning. this is essentially a nuclear
5:13 am
blackmail by the iranian regime against the european nations to try to get them to ca capitulat, open up international banking and adhere to their portion of the iran nuclear deal. if they exceed the limits, i think it will further isolate them. the u.k. will not adhere and stick to this, this could signal the end of the iran nuclear deal even from the european side. cheryl: just a reminder, president trump decided to pull the u.s. out of the iran nuclear deal last year. that was a president obama initiated deal. do you think it should stay in place? do you think we do need to work on trade with iran because we could have potential military conflict coming? >> the deal was not a good deal. you it really wasn't going to prohibit in the long term iran for developing nuclear weapons. i think the sanctions in place
5:14 am
are having an effect on iran and their economy and i think that's why we're seeing them lash out with both the attempts to exceed the nuclear deal, both enrichment and number of pounds of uranium, as well as these actions again tanking in the region, again, is another effort to pressure the european and asia allies to stick to the deal. cheryl: the attacks on the oil tankers, which is a global story, that's not jaws u.s. story. -- just a u.s. story. now the pentagon is saying they're sending 1,000 troops out there. one of the things ronald reagan did, with the threat that happened decades ago, he sent military ships to escort the tankers. is that the answer? >> i think it is. it's a measured response, defensive in nature. it's more intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance
5:15 am
assets, security forces and we have two ships in the region, two u.s. destroyers that went to the assistance of the tankers. you're not seeing the carrier strike group sail into the gulf, any indications of some type of more of a strike force. these are all defensive measures. i think we should see the u.s. and the international community i think should work together to help protect and h and escort sg as needed against this iranian threat. cheryl: the pentagon released he photos which show what we believe to be the iranian boat full of the national guard pulling the mine off the ship. the iranians say that wasn't us. i want to bring this home for a second. the political side of this. ilhan ow omar says we should ren to the table. you've got -- here's her tweet talking about that. you've got nancy pelosi concerned about the additional troops that could be sent to the region.
5:16 am
you say you think that's a good idea but that may be blocked here in washington. how possible is that? >> i think congress will get behind these troops, additional troops we're sending. they're defensive in nature. we're not sending military strike aircraft or forces that would be more of a military strike against iran. this is all to protect the sea lines of communication, our allies and our forces already there with missile defense, i.s.r., to observe and let us know if we see any further action by these i.r.g.c. navy forces. cheryl: we'll see what happens with the oil contract as well, more trading on global trade issues than this. but that situation is escalating there. thomas, thank you very much. >> thank you. lauren: let's take a look at futures this morning. the nasdaq outpacing the dow and s&p 500 this morning but investors turning again to companies that offer high growth potential, all three major averages in the green this

5:21 am
is the u.s. government about to step in with turbulence for the company. lauren: connell mcshane takes a look at the company. >> reporter: the department of homeland security put a memo out warning that drones made in china could be collecting data and sending it back to mainland china. when you think about the drone business, the company at the forefront is d.j.i. it wasn't mentioned, companies weren't mentioned specifically in 2 2 the the memo. this is the world's largest drone company. many didn't know it was chinese. d.j.i. took us on a tour of the showroom and demonstrated some of the latest and greatest, while emphasizing your data is not their business. with over 14,000 employees, d.j.i. says its purpose is simple, just trying to innovate as quickly as possible. >> we consider ourselves a global company. we feel that our technology and its applications is relevant everywhere. it's our mission to work as
5:22 am
broadly as we can to realize the potential of this technology for everywhere that we can. public safety is an area where we've seen a tremendous amount of growth. i think we've seen a 500% increase in adoption and frankly a lot of the way that this starts is that someone will own a drone privately and then he'll also be, say, a part-time firefighter and then bring it to his workplace and like hey, guys, this is an incredibly useful tool for us. >> reporter: the drone business, you think about drones for personal use or for shooting video, but the d.j.i. officials we spoke to, they say search and rescue, that's really a growing part of their business. back to you. lauren: he also had a chance to talk with a huawei's vice president. while denying that huawei works as an extension of the government, he said this about outside access to huawei's data. >> at all times, the telecom partners, customers are
5:23 am
completely in charge of all the data. there's no need for us to touch any of the data at all. >> there's no need to but i want to be clear on this point and i want to move on, there's no need for you to, but could you? >> no, we couldn't do it without the permission of the tell come company. >> could -- telecom company. >> could you do it without their permission if the government asked you. is it technically possible? >> to my knowledge, it's not technically possible. lauren: nick jakamakus joins us now. you heard from the huawei vice president. do you believe them or do you think they're desperate for business? part of the interview talked about the fact that huawei doesn't have a contingency plan as they lose business. >> good morning. i think anything that inflames the situation any worse than it already is obviously going to cause them to try to do what they can do to continue to try to move forward and get things back in place to resume business. but since last month when
5:24 am
president trump put the ban in place for u.s. companies doing business with huawei, it's obviously you puobviously put ta difficult spot. lauren: so you think they're saying whatever they need to say right now. >> i think they're being very cautious in trying to repair the relationship. lauren: moments ago facebook and nounsed their new cryptocurrency program, it's called libre. analysts are largely optimistic and bullish about this. they see it as a new revenue stream for the company. what are your thoughts about it? >> facebook has had continued pressure on the advertising revenue. so as you just mentioned, this is an opportunity for them to diversify their business and mark zuckerberg said recently that he wants to make transferring money as easy as transferring photos. so i think certainly this is a step in the right direction for them. lauren: we were talking about trust with huawei. do you trust facebook with this sort of data? it seems the market's optimistic now. the price of bitcoin, because of
5:25 am
facebook and potentially others getting into this space really rallying. >> yes. i think in regards to trusting facebook, i think facebook as we know is under tremendous scrutiny from a compliance standpoint. this will make them more under the microscope of compliance. with that being said, it's all about the execution of it and i'm sure they'll execute well. about five years ago they hired the gentleman who had been one of the chief executives over at pay pal to lead this initiative. so i would say yes. lauren: all right. well, you know, facebook stock was up more than 4% yesterday. it's moving today in the premarket. nick, thank you for coming on this morning. >> thank you so much for having me. cheryl: we have got a green start to your tuesday. take a look at futures right now, the dow is up 70 points, subpoena up 9, nasdaq up 44 and a quarter. still ahead, the crowds have been growing for hours. voters getting ready for president trump to kick off his

5:30 am
european stocks, we've got comments from mario dragi about potentially more stimulus in europe. that's asia, here we go. there's asian markets right now. europe markets already. nikkei is down three quarters of a percent. there are my european markets. as you can see, the comments from dragi boosting those numbers, all in the green right now. lauren: you wore the right color to. cheryl: i try. lauren: president trump kicking off his campaign in orlando florida today. tens of thousands of people are expected to be there. some of them lining the streets to get in. cheryl: looks like a rock concert. lauren: it kind of does. cheryl: lauren blanchard has been in the sun shine state. people have been camped out for days, is that correct? >> reporter: let me show you what that looks like. these folks have been here since yesterday morning, about 100 is what we saw yesterday morning. now take a look down the block. this is what it looks like. this goes down the block, around the block, it is expected to
5:31 am

5:32 am
the road as they are getting in to line. but not everybody is happy the president has chosen orlando. remember that trump baby balloon from the u.k. a copy of it is here, just down the road, for a win with love rally at the stonewall bar. they are planning to voice opposition to many of the trump administration's policies. the president tweeted he had more than 100,000 people sign up to get tickets. remember, only 20,000 will get in. so for those who aren't able to get a spot, they say they've got this whole thing planned, called the 45 fest, there's going to be big screen tvs, food trucks and a band, cheryl and lauren. so the whole thing will be available to all of those who don't get in, if they're not waiting in this line for all this time. lauren: wow, lauren, that's pretty amazing and a sign of what is to come as re-election season is officially here. thank you. cheryl: all right. let's pick up on all of this and bring in real clear politics white house correspondent susan
5:33 am
crabtree. 20,000 seat arena, this is 29 electoral votes, this is florida, the president needs it to get rehe'lelected. how is his stance in the state in your opinion? >> reporter: he certainly does need the 29 votes there. it's a deeply divided state. it always is. expected to be again. the president is right that these lagging poll numbers, he's trailing democrats, most of the democrats in the field, the top democrats at least by 10 points, that these early polls don't mean much at all in 1983 you had mondale beating reagan by 10 points. in 1991 you had george h.w. bush beating an unknown democratic candidate before bill clinton got in. cheryl: george w. bush won florida but lost re-election to clinton.
5:34 am
the hispanic vote in florida we've seen go more republican but we've seen an influx of puerto ricans who tend to go democrat. marco rubio was his opposition candidate in 2016. now he's got a lot more momentum in the state than prior. >> the election of ron de santis does not hurt him in any way, shape or form there, solidifying the republican leadership there. i think that helps him. the real state you have to look at is texas. if there's early trouble there, that's not a good sign. florida is always deeply divided. if you see a sign of trouble in texas, that could hurt him in the future. you shouldn't be shoring up -- cheryl: i'm glad you brought that up. joe biden was at a forum in d.c., elizabeth warren was there as well. he actually made a pretty bold statement. he said i promise if i'm the candidate, i can win south
5:35 am
carolina, texas, and georgia and he says he will not ignore those states on the campaign trail if he is the nominee from the democrats. what do you think of that statement? that's pretty bold coming from biden. >> absolutely. i think it's a tall order. i think the last person to do that is in 1976, jimmy carter, a southerner. he did that swing through the southern states. georgia, south carolina and texas. but you have joe biden flip-flopping on the hyde amendment. i don't think that's going to help him in those southern states, where abortion is a really big test there. so i think he's optimistic right now. cheryl: that's a very good point. remember, the last democrat to win georgia, clinton, as in bill. so that was pretty interesting you said that. all right. thank you so much for being here. we certainly appreciate your time. it's going to be -- we're just getting going thank you, susan. lauren: hundreds of u.s. companies from toy sellers to clothing and shoe retailers
5:36 am
begging the trump administration not to impose tariffs on another $300 billion in chinese imports, this comes on the first of seven days of testimony before a panel from the office of the u.s. trade representative. but not all of the witnesses are opposed to the tariffs. >> i'm here today to support the administration's 301 tariffs against china imports. it starts after a somewhat level playing field and it hopefully can shift manufacturing back into the western hemisphere. lauren: clearly a difference of opinion. we bring in kim glass from the national organization of textiles. do you find you're in the minoritminority of companies sag don't pull back on the tariffs. >> we're one of the industries that's been most impacted by intellectual property theft. we don't mind being one of the few voices in the trade winds because we think the industry
5:37 am
has been on the brunt of chinese unfair trade practices that distorted the economy and have hurt this industry for decades. lauren: i believe you're testifying this week, what will you say? >> i'm going to say to the trump administration on thursday that they should move forward and put tariffs on finished products coming out of china. 93% of our imports for this sector come in on finished products, apparel and home furnished goods. right now, the trump administration is only putting tariffs on inputs and in fact that's hurting some of our domestic industry where some of these inputs can only be sourced from china. so in order to level the playing field and to really address this issue, you need to put tariffs on the finished product. it helps shift sourcing back to the hemisphere and into the united states. lauren: let's look at a pair of blue jeans. most americans wear jeans, kim. so should there be an exclusion for tariffs on imports of the dye or the cotton or the
5:38 am
chemicals used in the raw materials? >> we think that if you are only sourcing certain dyes and chemicals or even textile mcly products that are -- machinery products that are certainly only made in certain countries like china, then yeah, there should be an exclusion. the administration, we're very concerned, has put some articles back on the tariff retaliatory list that were previously excluded. so we're asking the administration to reconsider that. lauren: so kim, why are retailers like kenneth cole so worried about the loss of jobs and that tariffs are essentially a tax. take listen. we'll respond on the other side. >> no one is writing us a check for these tariffs. china's not writing us a check for these tariffs. we will absorb the tariffs or have to deal with the tariffs and basically i see it as a tax on consumers, on american consumers. lauren: what's your response to that, kim? >> well, you're obviously
5:39 am
hearing a lot from brands and retailers who propelling this argument. all consumers know that there's significant markup at retail in terms of a value of a jean, a jean that we're sourcing out of china is $8. what this tariff would do is put 25% on the $8 pair of jeans, not the 4 a $5 pair of jeans that is sold by the gap and other retail brands. so i think you have to look to see who is propelling this particular argument. but i think the argument is overly exaggerated. there's literally over 100 countries where we source apparel currently and in fact you can source apparel duty-free through our free trade agreement partners in mexico and central america. so there's more than one option and we look forward to working with this administration, amplifying our concerns that we really need to address the trade distortions with this particular industry on the end products. lauren: kim glass, interesting perspective. thank you very much. >> thank you. cheryl: well, famed fashion
