6:04 am
more to get into this country. that is one thing we're covering. we're also watching iran. the u.s. is sending more military assets amid concerns they will be ramping up on military assets there. could this lead to a military conflict? the trump administration says they're sending the warships and carriers and other assets in case we have to fight back. secretary of state now talking with the europeans in brussels about the nuclear teal and the differences between the u.s. and europe on how they want to deal with that. >> all right. tracie, this is something that is just never ending, it seems like. thank you for that update. . it is 6:04 right now. happening today, critical vote for the future of oakland. of course the skyline here. at the port, the a's want to build a new stadium. this is a rendering of what it would look like.

6:15 am
tariff is placed on a chinese good, we are the ones paying the tariff. when the chinese put a tariff on an american good, say soy beans, they pay their tariff on our product. the company that makes the tariff pays the tariff. now, the president insists what i'm saying isn't true. he off says the chinese pay our tariffs. here's an example of that in a tweet. this is such a constant claim that journalist chris wallace pinned trump's top economic adviser larry kudlow down on fox news sunday, not letting him go into they hammered it. yes, americans pay the tariff on exports. it's the buyer of the more expensive goods who pays the price. so american goods are more expensive for the chinese, say soy beans. chinese products are more expensive for americans. >> right. >> okay. >> thanks, scott.
6:16 am
>> the p in ihop, what do you think it stands for? >> pancakes. >> not pregnancy or parenthood. maybe the company went a little too deep with a mother's day treat. it shows what appears to be a sonogram with a stack of flapjacks inside. it mentions pancakes in the tumtum. it did not spark as much as it did confusion. >> we know pancakes are delivered by storks. >> they change their name to burger, whatever. >> once again they, got it. >> stick to the pancakes. >> please. >> this morning, sunshine. a nice cool start.
