tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News August 9, 2019 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
home page. once it's over, it's available any time on demand. i'm rick leventhal in for shep. "your world" with neil cavuto is next. have a great weekend, everybody. [chanting]. >> neil: under fire again. protesters greeting president trump when he arrived in long island, in the hamptons, that didn't stop stephen ross from holding his fund raiser for the president despite calls to boycott his businesses. the president was appreciative. >> he's a great guy. he's, by the way -- i think he's probably more inclined to be a liberal, if you want to know the truth but he likes me, republicans me. we're doing a fund raiser there, doing another fund raiser with another friend of mine. i understand the fund raiser was totally sold out.
>> neil: all right. the political game on. welcome. i'm neil cavuto. this is "your world." we're going to talk to yet another fund raiser supporting the president. doesn't quiet know what to make of the boycott threat. that in just a moment. first, blake burman at the white house on where things stand right now on all of the above. hi, blake. >> hi, neil. two fund raisers in the hamptons for president trump. one of them gaining extra attention. the focus there was on stephen roth known in miami as the owner of the miami dolphins and in ann arbor michigan, the alum donated hundreds of millions. he heads one of the group that owner some of the biggest mildings in america's largest cities. his portfolio includes investments in the luxury workout chain, equinox and soul cycle. some customers and anti-trump activists are calling for a boycott of those workout spots because he held this fund raiser for the president. before the event, ross tried to
back away from some of the president's policies saying i have known donald 40 years. while we agree on some issues, we disagree on many others and i have never been bashful about expressing my opinion. the rnc and the trump campaign ahead of this were saying that stephen ross was exercising his first amendment right. when the president was asked about this this morning as he left the white house, he said that he believes this is going to raise ross' profile for the better. >> he's a great guy. he's, by the way -- i think he's probably more inclined to be a liberal, if you want to know the truth. he likes me. he respects me. if controversy makes him hotter. figure that out. >> neil, the fund raisers are sold out and it will bring in in $11 million to $12 million.
neil? >> neil: thanks. have a good weekend. and stephen ross is a fund raiser from massachusetts, also a donald trump supporter. ernie, very good to have you. thanks for coming me. >> thanks for having me. >> neil: what do you make of the dust up over this? >> it's like a rock fight out there. you know, nobody is listening to patrick henry. you should be able to support who you want to support, this is america. i've never lost a friend over politics. i don't think i lose business over politics. it's getting rough out there. >> neil: so if someone were to threaten your business because of the fact that you like donald trump, what would you do? >> well, i'd probably wouldn't acknowledge it because that's usually the way to go. with me, you know, i take care of my family, i take care of my employees, i take care of my community. i voted for president trump.
unless somebody else comes along that is better qualified, i'll probably vote for him again. it's just rough out there. you know, twitter is a good example. boy, it's -- again, like a rock fight every day. >> neil: you mentioned twitter. you know twitter had taken down mitch mcconnell's account after it dared show video of people gathering outside his house the other night and threatening him. it was his site that was taken down as a result. they have only just now reactivated that. what did you think of that? >> yeah. i don't think that is right. aoc had a parody account that i thought was spectacular, very funny. twitter took that down. there's a double standard happening here. it's really, really confusing out there today. >> neil: do you ever run across something from a company or head of a company or executives at a company that don't jive with the
product that they make or like or you like the product so much that it outweighs whatever they do politically? >> well, for me, i don't -- it doesn't stop me. like the person -- an electrician. if he works on my house, i don't find out if he's a republican or a democrat. that's not how i do business. that's not how i treat my friends. i have a lot of friends on the other side. we don't have a problem. it's very difficult out there today. >> neil: you obviously handle it pretty well. thank you very much, ernie. by the way, what was the president's mood at your event? how was he holding up in light of these threats of boycotts and everything else? >> my event was a long time ago. it was august of 15. it was very exciting. i mean, at the time he wasn't president trump. he was a world figure. toe have a world figure over at your house is exciting.
>> neil: that's true. ernie, thanks very much. >> thank you, neil. >> neil: meantime, can we expect more shaming of trump fund raisers to escalate as we head to 2020 and could that backfire on democrats? especially if it doesn't go the other way. jenna ellis is a member of the trump 2020 advisory board and max bernst. max, is this the proper route to go? if you don't like the politics of the ceo or his or her allegiances, you don't frequent their company? >> yeah, this is an american tradition. in a country where the supreme court has said for better or worse that money is political speech, how we spend our money is for a lot of people the most significant political act that they engage in. what you see with the protests across the country, people saying we love equinox, we love spin class. but if it's supporting and enabling president trump and his
disastrous policies, we'll go down the street. >> neil: i don't remember a lot of conservatives in the obama administration boycotting companies, hollywood companies that put out movies that they didn't like or the slant that they didn't have. i just don't remember anything like that. so should you live and let live or is this the rationale going forward? boycott the company because we don't like the heads of the companies and what they're doing. >> it's unfortunate you don't remember. i certainly do. president trump boycotting and calling for boycotts in 2014 and 2015 of nike and nbc, macy's, univision, the entire country of mexico. the president has had over 30 calls on twitter and on tv to boycott companies that he doesn't like. so -- >> neil: but this was based on just a single u.s. president or support for a president. do you think that that is a good strategy? you obviously do. >> i do.
antonin scalia would agree. he said if you're not able to stand for your political actions in public, that that zaps the country of the civic courage that forms democracy. >> neil: fair enough. i don't want to go too far afield here. jenna, when you hear that sort of thing, do you agree with that? that you have free reign, this is an american right, you don't like something, you can boycott, do all of that. you know, republicans themselves just exercised it in the mitch mcconnell situation where twitter took down his site because he simply showed a video of people threatening him. so they were threatening a boycott. they were threatening not doing business and getting their social media message on alternatives. so what do you think? >> yeah, i certainly agree that americans have the right to spend money anyway that they choose and if they choose to boycott a company for whatever reason, even if they don't like the protect, that is their right to exercise that however they want to.
however, i don't think that is a good idea to not draw the distinction between looking at a company for what its policies are and actually what the product is. for example, if you're going to boycott planned parenthood because you don't like the fact that their entire purpose is to have abortions, that's a very different ran than saying we're going to try to suppress political speech through our financial actions. i certainly don't agree that this is a good strategy moving forward to say hey, let's take down a company because of the private belief of investors or the people that work for that company. what if you did that for someone -- for some company that just because its employee happens to have a sign in their yard that sen go trump and then suddenly the company is trying to go to suppress the individual's political speech based on the fact that they work for the company? >> neil: i can go too far. what i'm worried about with the left and the right, we go too
far, a lot of people. >> yes. >> neil: a lot of people that might not like ben and jerry's politics. i don't know about you, but it would take an act of god for them to pull away a pint of chunky monkey from me. what i'm saying is, do we go too far with this? >> no. no one is going into ross' office and say you have to close executives knox, you have to get rid of your business. he can host -- >> neil: who is he hurting though? who are they hurting? in this case might be the people that work at equinox or soul cycle. if it were to grow -- and you're right, it's too early -- those are the jobs that are lost, not the billionaire investor. >> yeah, you just described a civic pressure campaign, this is the same strategy that fox news is using boycotting twitter since april. >> neil: would you apply the
same standard if it's an anchor, let's say msnbc versus an anchor at fox who is targeted for a boycott because something they said on the show offended people that the boycotts are well and good? >> i do. i expect to see the same thing on the other side. >> neil: jenna, fair and balanced to you. do you think the strategy, right or left, you can go too far, you don't like it, you can turn off the channel. in that case, you don't like it, you yourself cannot frequent that establishment if you're strong about it. to target economic harm because you don't like something is, right or left, going a step too far. >> i do, too. i think if you're targeting economic harm for the intention of suppressing political speech, it's much more dangerous than saying, you know, because i personally like tucker carlson was personally docked and that is a completely different situation, and when you have someone like castro who is saying, i'm going to put the
investors and the donors to president trump out in the marketplace and i'm going to put that out in the public for the intentional purpose of telling people think twice before you support this political candidate. that is going too far. >> neil: there is a double standard there, right? you supported the move against twitter. >> it's not a double standard when you say because of the doxing itself. that is something that is harmful. that's trying to suppress political speech. so you're saying i'm going to not support that action. saying that you can intention intentionally target somebody and suppress their political speech that is unconscionable in this country and i don't think we should go down that direction at all. >> neil: fair enough. i think we ought to just turn the heat and the rhetoric down a little bit. thanks very much. meanwhile, the president started talking. investors started walking. what got them doing either after this. i've always been amazed by what's next.
and still going for my best, even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin... i want that too. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. what's next? reeling in a nice one. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden sign of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.

>> we're talking to china. we're not ready to make a deal. we'll see what happens. we've been hurt by china for 25, 30 years. nobody has done anything about it. we have no choice but to do what we're doing. >> neil: all right. that initially had a lot of folks selling today on the belief that he had said later on in the same remarks that, you know, the september talks might happen, might not happen. so a sell-off ensued. it's been choppy. all markets closing lower for the week. we have aaron gibbs with us and jackie deangelis who had a front row seat to this. jackie, i guess you can say cooler heads prevailed but it was a bumpy ride. >> it was bumpy. choppy as you put it.
volatile is a word that was used on the floor today. the dow ended up down 90 points. it rebounded off the lows. we were negative for the week. this market was difficult to navigate. there were traders that said today, look, the president didn't say anything that we didn't already know. he said we don't have a deal or we're not close to a deal with china. we knew that. that's why we saw this turbulence this week. like jerome powell who is criticized for holding the press conferences and confusing people, the president was criticized on the floor today for making the comments and just holding it in the face of investors. sort of reiterating the fact that china is still a problem. >> neil: i'm beginning to get a sneaky suspicion that we're not going to get a china deal any time soon. we might not get it before the election. then what?
>> in some ways it would be easier. we would understand how much of these tariffs are going to cost companies, what is the real impact, how quickly can the u.s. companies move their supply chains outside of china. really get down to business and figure out what is the new normal. if we're facing these higher tariffs. as long as we have these constant headlines one day, it's going to happen, it's not going to happen, maybe it will happen. investors or reacting emotionally to all of this different information and all of these theories or hopes and the hopes being dashed. >> neil: are you saying that a lot of people said disappointment bring as silver lining. that is the silver lining, the cut in rates. are you in that camp? >> it's not just the trade war hurting. we've seen the global recession. as long as the tariffs that hurt
the global economy, that means we're more likely to get a rate cut and keep the equities propped up. you can expect volatility as long as we have there wishy washy back and forth between whether we have trade talks or not. >> neil: jackie, you report on the pace of earnings. we're almost through the second quarter cycle here. there's going to be mildly positive but not contracting, which some had feared. a slow down from where we were. how are they factors that in where you are? >> well, floor traders were impressed with earnings. it's been a good earnings season. that's important that brings us back to the fundamentals of companies and how they're doing. no, it wasn't gang busters in terms of the percentages but it wasn't bad either. where the china story comes back in, the next quarter. we didn't hear commentary about china, companies being worried about it or seeing an impact.
now with the second round of tariffs that the president said he will impose september 1, that could potentially be a problem and hit the companies. that's where the concern comes in. when the numbers don't look good and the fundamentals start to weaken, you have a reason for selling. >> neil: error -- erin, is it your sense that the market me anders from here and moving this aside, the trade concerns aside and focus on bigger issues like the growing global slow down? >> it's been in a picture a long time. what is propping up equities, despite having lower earnings and lower profitability expectations, we're getting the rate cuts, right? that's balancing the two. you know, you're not getting any return in fixed income so might as well prop up the equities. ultimately we have to face the fact that we're looking at slower profit growth and for
third and fourth quarter, it's come down to about 3% in the past two weeks. it's been a big revision down. >> neil: more voltity, i think. have a wonderful weekend. the president fund raising in new york. he will soon be on his way back. joe biden is campaigning in iowa. each are making separate pitches. who has the edge thus far? after this. creating the future. so, every day, we put our latest technology and unrivaled network to work. the united states postal service makes more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country.
e-commerce deliveries to homes (door bell rings) it's ohey. this is amazing. with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis, are you okay? even when i was there, i never knew when my symptoms would keep us apart. so i talked to my doctor about humira. i learned humira can help get, and keep uc under control when other medications haven't worked well enough. and it helps people achieve control that lasts. so you can experience few or no symptoms. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems,
serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible.
>> joe biden is not playing with a full deck. this is not somebody that you can have as your president. if he got the nomination, i'd be thrilled. >> neil: president trump welcome ago chance of facing joe biden in 2020. a lot of people say he does praise him too much there. the full deck comment could be a
preview of the coming attractions. susan crabtree. that's the reading you're getting from the white house. collectively they think it's joe biden as the democratic nominee and revving up for that possibility. but i'm wondering if that secretly concerns the president. he's the former vice president who is polling the best against him. what do you think? >> i think joe biden obviously polls really well with blue collar voters. we have this sort of knife fight being set up, these two old guys going at it and go have a twitter street brawl. it's something strange in politics that it's shaping up to be two 70-year-old white males going after it when there's so much call on the democratic side for diversity. but that seems to be what it's
shaping up to be. the democrats are concerned about joe biden and slipping in the detroit debates. he didn't do as well as expected. elizabeth warren nipping at his heels. we saw that in a pennsylvania poll. she's seven points within range of him. he polled 28% and she's polling 21%. so we're seeing that. the last poll that came, in 12% spread between the two of them. we see momentum on elizabeth warren's side. so joe biden has to be concerned about that. right now he's still the frontrunner and nobody has punctured that yet. >> neil: i follow the money closely and what they're raising online and after the debate. elizabeth warren has been doing well raising money. i fund that that is closely parallel to the type of support you get in the polls.
having said that, joe biden has been constant. so there's no adding of money. one of the standard lines that you hear from both is that he's slipping up, he's making mistakes. he's not saying things the way that they should be said and it's reinforcing an image that he's an older guy. he's four years older than the president, 72. you can make argument they're old white men running for the office. but it's reinforcing an image that biden lost his fastball. is that fair? >> it's good political strategy for the president to support that. biden hit back and said trump is not operating with his deck of cards. it has all jokers in it. it's a funny line. >> neil: he used a card deck analogy. >> that's a funny line but
didn't come from joe biden himself. we haven't seen him come out with those sharp one-liners that we expected with him that he's this scrappy fighter that was supposed to be his strength. he's suffering from a lack of momentum on his side and passion. the passion seems to be on the left. but that's not going to -- seems like from the polling, it's not going to get their party elected and oust trump. so we have a dichotomy here, a real problem on the democratic side. joe biden seems to be the frontrunner yet the passion to get out the voters to really compete with donald trump's ability to rally people, get people out to the stadiums. we just don't see that. there's no hope and change momentum like we saw with president obama this time around. >> neil: good point. i do remember a lot of people questioning outlandish things candidates say thinking it would bury them. the candidate was donald trump. so you never know. you never know. susan, thank you very much. >> for sure. >> neil: the president is signalling he's ready to act on
tougher background checks over the two mass shootings. how will congress respond? we might have gotten the first indication today. (gasp) (singsong) budget meeting! sweet. if you compare last quarter to this quarter... various: mmm. it's no wonder everything seems a little better with the creamy taste of philly, made with fresh milk and real cream. with the creamy taste of philly, i had a few good tricks to help hide my bladder leak pad. like the old "tunic tug". but always discreet is less bulky. and it really protects. 'cause it turns liquid to gel. so i have nothing to hide. always discreet. (momespecially these days. it's easy to shrink into your own little world. (dad) i think it's here. (mom vo) especially at this age. (big sister) where are we going? (mom vo) it's a big, beautiful world out there. (little sister) woah... (big sister) wow. see that? (mom vo) sometimes you just need a little help seeing it. (avo) the three-row subaru ascent. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.

(romantic music) that's gross priceline. every trip is a big deal. that's gross the doctor's office might mejust for a shot.o but why go back there when you can stay home with neulasta® onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. in a key study neulasta® reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1% a 94% decrease. neulasta® onpro is designed to deliver neulasta® the day after chemo and is used by most patients today.
neulasta® is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta® if you're allergic to it or neupogen (filgrastim). an incomplete dose could increase infection risk. ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems allergic reactions, kidney injuries and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. if you'd rather be home ask your doctor about neulasta® onpro. pay no more than $5 per dose with copay card. >> neil: what is tougher than being a vegan presidential candidate and you're at the iowa fair where they have fried pork chops? we'll report. if you're a vegan, you might want to hide.
>> neil: we have tremendous support for common sense, sensible, important background checks. >> neil: there might be a crack in this debate here. president trump said there's strong support in congress, including senate, for background checks. but will all the divisions that we're experiencing right now facilitate that process? could anything get passed in this environment? the former white house deputy chief of staff, best seller author, karl rove on that. karl, i remember issues and tragedies before where the two sides wanted to come together on mutually agreed strategies and they never do. what happens now? >> it depends on the president. if he backs a background check bill and he takes with him senator mcconnell that would make certain that that bill has enough support, written in such a way to get 60 votes in the senate, it can happen. this would be a case of the
president being like nixon going to china. he would give political cover to a lot of house and senate members that otherwise would be criticized at home. >> neil: if the nra's official position is we're not keen on that because what it could mean, it would take a brave republican to say sorry, right? >> it would. that's why the president's cover is so critical. if he decides to back a bill and if senator mcconnell thinks he can shape to it get 60 votes that will give -- if you have a choice between president trump saying i'm in favor of this and the nra saying we're not in favor of this, the president will win that argument, particularly when you have the public polls. public polls support for universal background checks -- granted, that is not a bill. that's not the detail. that's a title. but if you look at the support
that concept, it's up there 90% and almost 90% among republicans. like with a lot of things in legislati legislation, the devil is in the details. a significant number of people would back it if it was backed by president trump. >> neil: bill clinton was doing an interview in which he expressed regret that it was a ten-year time limit on the assault weapon ban from 2004. i checked his numbers on this. i'll defer to you. he said that since 2004 these types of mass shootings increased exponentially. might note be that high if we had that ban in effect. what do you think about that? >> i don't know if i agree with that. even president clinton did not suggest that the ban, the possession of these weapons, it was ban the sales of new ones.
>> neil: columbine still happened after that. go ahead. >> that's right. so unless you're like australia saying we're going to confiscate weapons, that's hard to do. it's a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. unless you change that amendment, it's hard to confiscate somebody's semiautomatic weapon. remember, you know, we have said assault we pops. but essentially that was cosmetic. we have other rifles, long rifles, that don't look as menacing as an ak-47 or an ar-15. but they're still the same concept. that is to say, they have a magazine. if you pull the trigger once, it shoots a bullet. if you pull it again, it shoots another bullet. they didn't fall under the assault weapons ban because they didn't have the military-style that we see with the ak-47 and
the ar-15. >> neil: while i have you, your thoughts on joe biden and what the president had to say about him today. some concern that biden is slipping up. saying the wrong things at the wrong time. that's not egregious. but enough to reinforce this perception, you know, you get old. >> yeah. look, we have two groups of voters here. we have democratic primary voters and the general election voters. i'm not certain it matters in the primary. but that's the key test. people are going to be in the primary looking for reasons to advance their candidate at the expense of somebody else. he's the frontrunner but a weak frontrunner. i heard a wise person on fox news in the last ten minutes or so that suggested this issue might not be as powerful in the general election. i have to say i admit that you did a heck of job answering that question, neil. i agree with you. i'm not certain how it's going to be in a general election. >> neil: the fact that you're
listening closely inspiring me to have you on again. >> every word, my friend. every word. >> neil: there you go. karl, the closer i get to these ages, the less i'll be critical of them right or left. always good having you. be well. >> thank you. >> neil: karl rove with a very good read. apparently the fbi is ramping up social media surveillance. but can it go too far? who is it targeting? after this. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. we're the tenney's and we're usaa members for life. call usaa to start saving on insurance today.

intensions but then i worry what are you going to do with it? >> part of the problem is, this is not a new request. it goes back to 2012 with facebook and my space. the fbi has recognized people to get together on social media and look at their identities to carry out different goals. they can figure out when i vents might help, where they might help and what might be involved. right now they're really amping up the efforts on what they're calling early detection of these emergency situations. really -- >> neil: what the are they detecting? something that is said online back and forth with strangers, what is said in someone's gaming and streaming? where is this going? >> they're trying to create these in depth profiles based on what they're calling publicly available information. generally facebook and twitter
are calling it mass surveillance, which is not allowed on their platforms. they've had these debates for years. who will define what is suspicious activities are, is it when they post a manifesto but not act on it? is it participation in different group? they're not necessarily going to see what messages are being sent back and forth. now we don't know what will happen. there's the debate between individual privacy and communal security. that's something we've seen for years. >> what i've worried about, something judge andrew napolitano echoed with me. with the best of intentions, once you give a green light for the government and the fbi to start policing you online or at least police what will algorithmically get across as dangerous language online, all bets are off. what do you think? >> definitely. it's a situation that could be
extremely dangerous. worries privacy advocates and people on social media that don't have malicious manifestos. we're not saying that even government interference would block this activity, right? even if it's falls off of facebook, it's going to go somewhere else and these forums will always be available for people that want to communicate. the other piece is, facebook is trying to encrypt a lot of messaging platforms realizing people that may not want to speak in the town square of public facebook posts but may go into private messages. the government wouldn't necessarily have access to it and be enscripted. that brings up another point. the we've seen the debate with apple and didn't go in the government's favor. >> i think it's a tough position because i always get so annoyed when you get the angry messages that were posted online and sometimes for all sorts of folks
to see. we only learn about it after a horrible event. it's open season on what is out there. >> hindsight is 2020. it's impossible to pick everybody out. who is to say if the government is the best entity, facebook officials are not. but there has to be happy medium. >> neil: we're not there yet. thanks, leeza. thanks very much. >> thank you. >> neil: 2020 democratic candidates descending on the iowa state fair this weekend. i've been to this fair a number of times. outstanding food. if you're a vegan, not so much. let's say you're a very again running for president and you still want to be polite and eat that stuff. how do you take it? after this. hey, who are you? oh, hey jeff, i'm a car thief... what?! i'm here to steal your car because, well, that's my job. what? what?? what?!
