acted as judge, jury and executioner in a too big to fail status and offered no avenue for life to obtain a full and fair hearing on the issue. more coming up on the heels of the hank greenberg ruling yesterday. people managing their pension lost profits on hedge funds. one of today's top stories in the turn of shows us the pensions that went with hedge funds likely miss the runoff in the market. in another story from this morning's "wall street journal," "wall street journal," within the company behind the wearable health tracking device had raised its range for the pricing. the prices tonight and it starts trading tomorrow. donald trump is running for president. the real estate mogul says he knows how to create jobs. >> i will be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. maria: donald's son eric joins me to talk about his father's

6:03 am

6:04 am
they sifi. if you look to the filing, there's a lot of reasons that might be true. they listed 10 reasons it might be wrong. first of all they don't think they should've been there to begin with. the statute says you have to have 85% of revenues from financial services. they don't have the technical definition. we shouldn't have been in this to begin with. then they say that a someone ignored the process. someone didn't give us the information without we should have. there were 10 foia requests over object to it. if you read through, it reads like something that was that you said judge, jury and executioner. that life has a pretty good case. maria: they say without any reason basis and contrary to historical evidence, someone obtained the utter ineffectiveness of state regulators.
6:05 am
>> i am wondering, this is a big challenge. the financial institutions will be wondering whether or not we will watch the challenge closely and if they themselves because the process is arbitrary whether others might be exempted by fsoc from the sifi designation. do you think that is likely? they are very unhappy and they may challenge it. >> i don't think the bank holding has a great case. other insurers designated. aig. they will look at this closely. for better or worse, the fsoc has done things differently in every case. it doesn't mean the ruling covers over to other designations because processes aren't the same. maria: jury brings up an important point. after speaking with people outside the door has now become
6:06 am
open in terms of further debate. you've got the cause of what happened yesterday or this week with hank greenberg or the judge basically said the government did act illegally and acquiring a majority stake of aig that the conversation has shifted particularly pushing back on the designation. >> is absolutely right, maria. a lot of complaints on the substance. i look at metlife and i don't see the combination of leverage and relied on short-term funding that is the recipe for a problem institution. it is just not fair. that is the substance of the process is just as bad as the analysis of the substance. that gives people a lot of hope. dagen, what is the upside if they can jettison this designation? >> you end up with a higher level by the federal reserve. federal reserve. the entire capital standards, compliance cost, they would love to avoid this. we saw earlier ge capital say we
6:07 am
want out of this sifi designation. we would get rid of the entire business to avoid it. there's a lot of cost that comes with sifi designation. maria: date is such an important point you bring up. it is dictating balance sheets. what you just said about ge. >> this protest particularly to one of the reasons the sifi designation is limiting potential because they have still higher levels of capital which reduces the leverage they can have. they make less money. slightly different for insurers but the same principle applies with levels of regulatory capital and overregulation means it does restrain them for making the money they were making before. this is a case well worth winning because if they win they can end up being much higher earnings.
6:08 am
maria: the next catalyst on this, i know they are waiting for outside commentary to support their argument and then a hearing in the fall. >> my understanding is that i fixed x in 10 days or so for outside groups to file amicus briefs in support of that position. the judge could have a hearing on the the decision comes comes at the end of the year. maria: good to have you on the show today. douglas holtz-eakin and chief jerry baker. let's talk about the hedge fund bad pending patches. jeb is launching his presidential campaign monday in miami and with him were the people who helped him establish his professional and political career. the journal alpine presidential candidates political rise and then firms moving portfolios away from the market to reduce risk of missing out on the rally. the hedge fund bad hate pensions and breaks that down.
6:09 am
the third story is fake big pricing the ipo tonight. we will discuss a $3.7 billion valuation. top stories today. what about the jeb bush story. >> we took a look at the backwardness he launched his campaign on monday. starts out as a favorite for the republican nomination. we looked at his business back around in florida. he moved from texas and he was very successful. he had connections in some part to his father and family. but we track the connections in florida business before he became governor in 1998. he proved himself to be very successful businessman. he benefited from connections but he was quite successful, too. he has a record of being a conservative governor after 1998. he also has a record of having been successful in various business investments.
6:10 am
maria: we looked at the local yesterday. jeb! distancing himself from the bush name. will he be able to distance himself from gw who has been criticized? >> berea, i think it will be hard. you can't run away from the name. people still know what the last name is. it'll be hard to run away from that. the big challenge and where i think it is going to drag him down somewhat is that he is going to be compared with his brother and he will be asked all the time about things his brother dave. some would say his father, too, but more importantly his brother. the iraq dispute came out. what would he have done, but his brother did in iraq in 2003. he will be constantly asked things like that. things like expanding medicare. he will be constantly asked what he thinks about his brother's presidential administration.
6:11 am
they will constantly remind people what positions they took during the administration. some of the polls recently showed president george w. bush has become more popular as time has gone on. i think the issue of the fact he is running to succeed his brother is going to be a factor. >> clinton has the same issue. that is also a dynasty. let's talk about the hedge fund pensions. this is a big story. in terms of betting on putting hedge fund -- pension in a hedge fund is a risky bet in my opinion. >> what we talk about here is corporate pension funds. they have been very challenging the last 10 years low interest rates. many pension funds are not earning enough to meet obligations to the people they pay a pensions do. they diversify investment and then invoking to improve their
6:12 am
returns over the last few years invested in hedge funds whereas you know they take bigger risks and get generally bigger returns. and how things because adequate defense to do well and bonds have done so well over the last few years. hedge funds have underperformed most of the next these in the last few years. the corporate pension funds having gone into hedge fund investments have lost out and put their money to beckley state into a managed fund or something like that. they would have done better. they performed less well than they would have. dagen: can ask a question? in theory, mark can speak to this, for a better risk adjusted return, the roof is when you have a hideous market downturn how they do. so will they stick with these investments and are they getting a decent risk adjusted return for the amount of risk they are taking on? >> the important point is if you
6:13 am
look at hedge funds in the data, they are less risky on every measure of risk. lower volatility, lower downside volatility. maria: the fees are so much higher. >> the best person charges than those. if you care about your return. the problem in this case i believe is the pension funds piled into hedge funds after the down turn. so they did what human beings do really, really well. they bought what they would have out. so now we have the second problem. they will sell what they are about to me. if we are closer to the top and bottom, they want to be more hedged today. >> the point is a good one. the adjusted rate of return is better because they are taking higher risk. if they do pile up the funds now, they are clearly not going to benefit from the advantages if you stay with them. many of them will stay with the
6:14 am
hedge funds as expensive as the fees are. they may well end up doing better because they stayed within the downturn and they will do better as the hedge fund themselves. maria: is it a passive year or active year. i keep hearing an active year, yet the past that keeps on winning. we will be back with more. the fit a story up next when broker chris hill stays ata quinta and fires up free wi-fi, with a network that's now up to 5 times faster than before you know what he can do? let's see if he's ready. he can swim with the sharks! book your next stay at!

maria: metlife challenging its too big to fail status, investigating hacking claims inside major league baseball. and donald trump bling republican field for president. >> from the fox business network in new york city year is maria bartiroma. maria: good wednesday morning. i am maria bartiroma, it is june 17th and with me this hour is rudy guiliani, and sandra smith. we will talk to our guests in a moment but first top stories in a fox business exclusive. i have learned met life is
7:01 am
filing a new suit against the financial stability of the site killed challenging its too big to fail status. metlife is adding to its initial losses first filed in january in which it said x box, judge jerry in executioner in determining too big to fail status and after it -- no revenue to obtain a fair and full hearing on the issue. more on this metlife story coming up. people managing your pension likely lost money on hedge fund bets. one of today's top stories in the wall street journal shows as tensions at hedge funds most likely miss the run-up in stocks. and another story from this morning's journal we learn the company behind where rebel tracking device has raised its range for ipo pricing, pricing is tonight, stock trades tomorrow. donald trump running for president, the real estate mogul says he knows how to create jobs. >> i will be the greatest jobs
7:02 am
president that god ever created. i tell you that. maria: donald's son eric joins me in our 8:00 a.m. eastern hour to discuss this announcement. janet yellen and company wrapping things up, federal reserve expected to tell us if it will raise interest rates when the statement is released at 2:15 eastern time. we are not expecting an increase in rates. one of the most successful teams in baseball embroiled in a hacking scandal. and whether the cardinals illegally access the database of the houston astros. baseball commissioner vincent talks to me about it in the program. >> the season is complete. the golden state warriors with 2015 nba champions, their first title in 40 years. maria: the golden state warriors are the new nba champs, the cleveland cavaliers last night 105-97 taking game 6. look at futures this morning, we
7:03 am
expect a higher open for stock prices with money moving into equities. it started in europe where stock gains are there, german chancellor angela merkel wants in answer to the greek debt problem by tomorrow, the pricing in a default by greece on the imf loan which is due at the end of june. more on those stories coming up. our top story out of the hills of the aig ruling where judge be letter shed, the government did act illegally by acquiring aig. metlife continued to challenge its too big to fail status. douglas holtz-eakin worked closely on the case. here is what he said in the last hour. >> the statute says you have that 80% of revenues or assets from financial services, they don't fit the technical definitions of their saying we should not have been in this to begin with, then they ignored the state insurance regulations and on top of that they have due process claim that didn't give the information we thought we
7:04 am
should have, the report requests that were rejected and new evidence at later rounds without knowing about it but if you redo it looks like something, judge, jury and executioner and that life has a good case. maria: you heard yesterday hate to greenberg will appeal the ruling, no damages even though the judge did rule the government was illegally. i'm joined by rudy giuliani and posed sandra smith and i went your take on fist. this metlife story and what happened earlier this week with a ig basically is changing the conversation in board rooms opening the door to debate about whether the pendulum has actually moved too far, the government has overreached. >> two problems the major company has challenging the government. one is if you challenge and win, it takes three years, your evaluation can get killed for the three year period. number 2, if you do it you
7:05 am
better win. up until now there was a feeling you couldn't win so hank sort of broke the mold. this sounds like a pretty good challenge to a board that ignored any form of due process and the courts have the sense the government is overreaching plus the insurance area is an area of heavy state regulation and what is the federal government coming in and regulating of her again? insurance companies traditionally for 200 years are regulated by our state so it will be a good challenge in federal court. maria: great reporting on this. fascinating to learn in these border and then the financial services, as you are reporting there's major push back known and because there is a sense the pendulum has swung too far and these financial institutions are being overregulated where is difficult to turn a profit and do business in america. i would be interested, we talked
7:06 am
about the unintended consequences of dodd-frank, interesting to see who else comes out after the hank greenberg ruling. maria: prudential is sort of wondering whether or not systemically important designation for them as well so you are getting a whole new open debate. >> willingness to go to trial the government has to be more careful bringing the case. if you get this spitzer approach, bring the case known matter what, and to beat him. prickly got into the lazy happen of bringing a case and settle and they settled. all of a sudden brings the case and they challenge and beat you and everybody having been a u.s. attorney i can tell you this for sure, we considered every case a case that would go to trial so before we brought it we were ready to win it.
7:07 am
if you get into that habit of getting too many agreements, you get lazy about it. maria: this segment is dictating balance sheets. cheese selling ge capital. donald trump shaking up the nomination with an unprompted nearly hour-long announcement of how he plans to win the race for the white house. >> when was the last time anybody saw us beating let's say china in a trade deal? they kill us. i beat china all the time. i am not saying they are stupid. i like to remind. isil apartments, isil that apartment for $15 million to somebody from china. am i supposed to dislike from? i will be the greatest jobs president the guy never created. i tell you that.
7:08 am
when do we beat mexico at the border? they're laughing at us to, at our stupidity, now they're beating us economically, they are not our friends believe me. ladies and gentlemen, i am officially running for president of the united states. and we are going to make our country great again. maria: got to love donald trump, a potential first son eric trump coming up in the broadcast. the new york post headline, trump, and i will make the white house mine. what do you think? >> i will tell you my personal conversation with him, stranger
7:09 am
things have happened. this is a strange year with lots of candidates, he rises above the field with bush and maybe marco rubio, not really. donald has more name recognition than marco rubio. who would have predicted barack obama a year-and-a-half before the over hillary clinton? who would have predicted jimmy carter going way back, governor that came out of nowhere, who would have predicted bill clinton? he doesn't have political background. this may be a year with that feeling. he thinks it does and that is why he emphasized politicians get nothing done, and i got a little bit -- the reality is he brings a kind of attention to the republican race that it didn't have before with hillary being sort of the stock power. and give these other people in chance to shine, people who can stand up to him and debate if
7:10 am
one of them gets the nomination, will be a heck of a candidate liz is possible. maria: the media likes to make fun of that. >> the daily news headline is disgusting, did discount a man for president before he has a chance to make his case with every point he made is a serious point. we have visions with mexico, offering solutions, not as if the campaign is relevant to what is going on now. >> donald trump shook things up with that announcement. why -- i can't stop watching it. >> he was reading an entertaining but to your point he presented actionable ideas. the problem, what i'm going to
7:11 am
do, the economy is a mess, i will fix it here is how. that sort of gusto and confidence of lot of people feel we are lacking in our leaders in this country so he may have found a niche. >> he will inject the race with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. and a lot of attention. a lot of people will watch these debates who would not have otherwise watch them because donald trump is going to be there. >> isn't it extraordinary the current administration does not put growth as a priority? if growth were the priority we would seem much different policy, we would seem much different action out of the government. >> bush makes the same point but doesn't make it in flamboyance daniel, aiming for 4% growth. after the recession we had it should be above 5% range, should be the 1% to 2% range constantly worrying about are we growing or falling back? he has pointed that out and some people said he wasn't specific
7:12 am
enough. he was as specific as any candidate and more specific and hillary clinton. >> may be coincidence but when donald announced his run for the presidency did that happen to hit highs of the session. following that. something we noted, not altogether connected but the new market indicator. >> get your take on this. and the federal government sending the atf to work side-by-side with the nypd on troubling gun violence in new york city. ray kelly joined as yesterday blaming rising crime partially on the left wing's and i police rhetoric. >> i think you see a hesitancy on the part of police officers to engage in what i call laura lot of people called proactive policeing. over two decades new york city has been made savor as a result of proactive police, police using their own initiative. all signals that are being given
7:13 am
to police officers don't get involved, don't engage in this type of practice. >> exactly right. anomaly for of new york but other countries. i travel all over the country, i have a close relationship with the police and they come up to me and talked to me every place i am and this is when they tell me, exact what rate kelly said. the rhetoric that has been going on for over a year. police officers have families and children to support. if they make a mistake they know the politicians are going to king from out to dry and that means no income for their families. obviously they will be more cautious, more careful and what that means is i get a call there is a shooting, i can't get right there as fast as the lone ranger or i can wait a little, tinkle longer and just write down what happened and then look, they are human beings, some are super
7:14 am
heroes, some are heroes, some are average and some are regular guys. that is happening right now. and kelly was a terrific police commissioner. mary that we will take a short break. we are back in a minute, stay with us.

maria: the initial public offering tonight, jo lin kent is on the story. >> this is all about the competition, on its way to $3.7 billion valuation after raising its rate to $17 to $19 a share. the wearable devicemaker raise the number of shares to $34 million. this would make it the fifth biggest ipo of the year. going into the pricing tonight, strong numbers in 2013-14, doubled to 11 million and revenue almost tripled. the apple watch with its and tracking technology and ecosystem and as more devices
7:18 am
shifted, a real problem continuing to grow as fast and survive the competition, also facing lawsuits from rival jobless. >> we could see the company raise the pricing again. >> definitely could. we had a whole day ahead of us and that is definitely a the leader in the space right now but also a huge estimates on the apple watch. the main difference i would like to point out is a cheaper product, $250, the apple watch, 350 is the starting price but apple brings their prices down over time to meet with the customer wants. maria: there will be gadgets, over saturated, the market is getting crowded. can't have that many devices. what i like most about this. >> it is a lot to keep track of. what apple is going for, at
7:19 am
least it will do with the things i need to do. >> it also measures your sleep. i could go to sleep and wake up and say i got six hours quality sleep and only one hour not quality sleep. keep the bracelet on, go to sleep and it tells you how many hours you slept that how many is not. that is what i like about it. >> that is all happening, and calories which is so good. >> sleep is important to us. >> will be acquired by insurance companies that log health data or will it be acquired by another tech companies of these are questions we will ask james r.y, the ceo. maria: one thing this opens up a pandora's box. and who owns all the data at the
7:20 am
end of the day? the ceo of under our merced he is making shirts with sensors in there and the shares are measuring, whose date is that? and their armored data. under armor owns the data. >> it should be released with your approval. and governing health care information. >> have you -- a different company has the access. >> just like everything else. and they are selling it. >> for that purpose. almost considering a hospital.
7:21 am
>> the regulations -- >> that is part of technology above the law. maria: thank you so much. we are back with more "mornings with maria". stay with us.

7:24 am
maria: strong demand following u.s. stockpiles push oil prices higher, crude is up, and that the cme in chicago. >> demand is full word, focus on supply side. they forgot the demand side which has been surging especially if you look at u.s. gasoline demand in the u.s.. we are seeing the tightest supply demand cover in the gasoline market but we have seen in a lot of years.
7:25 am
why is that happening? despite the fact that refiners are refining gasoline at the highest level in almost ten years, we have seen a 10 million barrel drawdown in that inventory and was tropical storm bill slowing operations those supplies will tighten even more so we are seeing a bounce up in gasoline and oil prices are up as well so it will be a big day. looking for a drawdown in crude supplies, once again we could continue higher. maria: we will be watching, thank you so much. six hours until the federal reserve board june statement, feels like we have been talking about a possible june rate increase for months now but it is expected to hold lot in terms of raising rates today and again anything could happen. we will find that at 2:00 p.m. eastern with black rod global chief investment strategist russ hostage joining us, mayor rudy guiliani and sandra smith, thank you for joining us. what do you expect from the fed today? >> we are not expecting much in
7:26 am
terms of rate hikes the we are getting closer and when you think of recent economic data, non-farm payroll, retail sales plan, concerns about soft data are starting to abate and the fed will l.a. the groundwork for a hike sometime this fall. maria: i wonder if today's announcement is more about setting the stage for september. setting the stage for expectations the economy is improving. >> the market pricing september rate hike, and that being said, one rate hike. and the second one before the end of the year. what are markets price, what have they priced in already? >> the market is looking for that call hike. this is a very gradual cycle. and we will not see every
7:27 am
quarter point hike. the market is expecting something more episodic. also a tightening cycle that aims at a lower deck in previous cycles and that is a big difference. >> now is a joy and environment. >> it is ancient history. >> time for a long time. and across the world now. primarily people who never experienced. >> what is interesting, not even on the trade desk but a lot of individual investors, seven eight years, going into bond funds. many of those investors haven't seen tightening, one of the questions in this investors' behavior in the environment starts to shift. >> they make a quarter of a
7:28 am
point raised, up really no real impact. >> it is psychological, quite right from the perspective of the fed a tightening cycle as you point out, going from a very low pace, it goes to the psychological response of investors, the changes we have seen or structural changes over the last five or ten years. maria: liquidity issues are front and center so you are obviously the managing director and global chief investment strategist at black rock, $5 trillion in assets under management. what do you tell investors to do when the fed meets? >> first thing to say as when the fed does start to hike this is not the end of the world. i king at a low level and the reality is there a very few if any instances, bull market ending with the first fed hike. that will be more violent
7:29 am
environment. certainly want to own stocks of bonds. a better value than you had seen in the bond market after five or six years of the marginal buyer being a central bank and driving valuations higher. maria: we will leave it there. thank you so much. complete coverage of the fed decision on the fox business network. all begins at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. we will have the decision and the press conference live when it happens. the 2016 race for president officially receiving its front runner and a potential showstopper. my next guest says watch out for the dark horse. and exclusive next in a minute. when broker chris hill stays at laquinta he fires up the free wifi, with a network that's now up to 5 times faster than before! so he can rapidly prepare his presentation.

7:34 am
elected basically part of the one percent, so maybe the republicans can throw 1z percent thing at the democrats for all her wealth my favorite is because it is ability to win i think guy the best chance of winning is rick santorum people forget that he won two senatorial races outnumbered by one million more democratic registering voters yet won twice i think because of appeal he gave in introduction speech where he talks about the republicans the speech about job createors to 5% of the population a pitch how democrats and republicans rally behind to help 74% americans who have not graduated from college i think that is probably yes is going to do very well as the primary process starts weeding people out. >> may be in step with what the country needs right now but is he as well-known as some of the others let's take
7:35 am
for example trump that is a household name this moint what is your take on donald trump's entrance yesterday? >> i love donald trump i love his chutzpah char isa the fact that he gets things done i remember, i think he built some builds record time we just put up a school in jackson hole we had company bama construction from grand rapids blult 11200-square foot house i'm sorry a school, in four months he is that kind of of can-do guy i am excited about -- about hes entry. maria: will rick santorum be able to distance himself from the other ideas i mean one criticism that there are too many maybe the beach is deep all of the candidates have something to add to the conversation, but are there too many gop candidates right now. >> heavens no your guest i was hoping he he would toss a big fan. >> lot of people are let me ask him rudy you want to break
7:36 am
news right now come on do it. >> i think the primary process would not -- be terrible generous to a pro-choice pro-gay rights candidate all of them if you notice i think with no exceptions are somewhat more to the right than imp on social issues, national security would i be the. >> have this keeps dogging the gop party, i mean do you think that the republican party has to reassess who they believe america is in terms of -- >> i always thought republican party if it wants to be a majority party we have loss the particular vote four out of last five presidential elections if you want to be a presidential majority party we have to go back to big tent ronald reagan idea new york pennsylvania california, states like that have to come
7:37 am
into play i think it is asocial issues keeping those states out of play -- rudy -- >> i cannot disagree with you more rudy doesn't make any sense at all. maria: why? >> well, because if you look at the science now with the ultrasound machines i think our country is more pro-life than it has ever been i am grateful you point out almost all republicans have the same exact issues, are on social issues as ronald reagan. >> ronald reagan was -- a very much on the same social issues as rick santorum every candidate ring as you point you the out a republican there is no way there is no way someone can win, in at a republican primary by being pro-choice, so you are stuck with the fact that you are gonna have a pro right candidate whether you like it or not, i think. >> i think foster is right realities i am a realist. my view of the republican party is that since it has
7:38 am
emphasized so-called social values, it has manipulatemized as presidential cart maximized as congressal party we have lost it is particular vote have out of last 5 times with pro-life candidate on the ticket,if you go to places like montgomery county pennsylvania -- west chesser county new york used to be big ronald reagan republican council ronald reagan didn't emphasize that position ronald reagan signed first abortion bill as governor of california. what about that. >> i think the -- the more important point is that who is emphasizeing the social issues is it the candidacy i don't know of any candidates, emphasizing social issues the reality is it is a media that is emphasizing social issues what about -- most people have no idea the rick santorum
7:39 am
authored original bill accountability act so far ahead of everybody else in terms of assessing our throat the throat is global jihadist moment of not war on terror. >> is he able to raise money to really go up against folks like hillary clinton. >> let's how much money is required, you all have forgotten. maria: you tell us. >> john mccain you forgot that john mccain shows up in new hampshire carrying his suitcase, let me -- let me agree with foster on think campaigned for rick in several of his campaigns, including the one that he lost the end. -- is an extremely smart very substantive candidate probably the top tir terms of islamic fund list triple even though we disagree on social issues i am a republican because i consider the economic and national security issues much more important, and on those issues rick santorum is a
7:40 am
very, very good candidate. >> especially on his point he makes a comment that the republican parties has honed beautifully, beautifully this message about job creators, speaks to 5% the popping beating the drum for can what about 74% of the americans are fellow manneamericans not gradud from college donald trump apparently said every republican ought to read resigning's book blue collar conservative rick as all three reagan legs on stool we know the same stool as reagan had on social issues points out, but basically very strong on a the biggest threat our country faces, rudy pointed out also he is very strong on economic issues, where people you know, he is a blue collar kind of a guy grandfather, 72 dad ran veterans administration hospital when they asked about
7:41 am
taxes at it kadebate he said i have to go home still working on. >> it would you be counsel with him as running mate who would i like to see his partner on ticket. >> well, everyone of those guys you look eights person by person carley fiorina sharp as i can get, rand paul,just every one of them, i think, you have to admire so that is what i think people are going to gravitate to the republican party, remember we cannot win with the told war horses we did not win with dole didn't win with romney with mccain the democrats didn't win with kerry, who wins the democrats bring these people from out of nowhere carter out of nowhere, clinton from out of nowhere obama comes from beyond nowhere. >> what about hillary, that is he scandal around her impacted
7:42 am
her p polls numbers i think there idea e-mails people getting free telephones and food stamps they have no clue about e-mails, they are going to that democratic vote rb there regardless, but i think, what is going to be appealing is the republican party a message of positive school choice, and health savings accounts, and. maria: jobs. >> yeah well here is another thing rick santorum gaining millage he talks about apparently meet the press he knocked out of the park said why is the democratic party had this antiworker stance, and the fact that the democrats bringing in all these immigrants illegally, undercuts wages of everyday americans here what is resonating i don't know if you realize but when 80, 90,000 kids arrived on the border in in january our government had

8:29 am
perception of, well, he is saying that everybody wants him to say that we all belief but he is not a traditional candidate and he is coming across as sort of very new york or something like that? how does he get beyond that? >> his platform is from nontraditional candidate. traditional candidates put us in the problem we have. we have 18 trillion-dollars worth of debt. we have three or four skyscrapers in new york by comparison. that is astronomical. we have isis. we have failed educational system. we have serious problems. he says i don't want to be a traditional candidate. i took a small company out of brooklyn-queens, took it to multinational company around the world and i want to do the same with the united states. maria: he really did. that is the essence about great things about america. being able to build a company and grow it like your father did. when you look at something like,
8:30 am
for example, the media, "the daily news" today, basically making fun of donald trump for running for president. that is really what i'm getting at. i think what he is saying are all very important issues for voters to be thinking about and yet, you know the media sort of blows it off like with we saw on "the daily news" cover. how do you get away from that. >> they make fun of success which is anti-american. maria: absolutely. >> embraces success. candidates run away from success. he has done amazing job. look at jefferson, amazing presidents, they were suck sellsful guys with great state ture. they became president of the united states. we don't have that anymore. people have been in office their whole lives. they need to be in office. my father doesn't need to be in office. he has amazing life. he has amazing company. he has amazing company. we're growing all over the world. he doesn't need to be in office.
8:31 am
maria: that is very good point. >> he opens "the wall street journal," fox, sees $18 trillion and ceases isis and failing educational system and bad trade deals and nuclear weapons. we're effectively at war on every continent of the world. if you look what is happening with russia and what is happening in the middle east and what is happening in china. it is very sad thing. one thing about my father he is patriot. he loves america more than you can imagine. maria: you make important point in terms of wealth. when we saw mitt romney for example, couple years ago, he tried to stance himself from his wealth. your father is embracing it all-in, yeah, i'm really rich. deal with it. >> sure. he has done a great job. he has built a hell of ap k he has done unbelievable job. he should embrace that. that is part of the american dream. that is what he strives to do. people on this channel they're wanting to make millions, wanting to be successful, want the best for our kids. it is very sad day if the next generation might not live the
8:32 am
same quality of life as a former. we want better for our kids than we want for ourselves. given debt levels and problems around the world, we might not see that for the next generation. maria: very nice when your dad yesterday introduced everybody in the family. the family was sort of offstage. he named everybody there. and you have, seems a very close-knit family. tell us how this decision was made. tell us something we don't know in terms of how the family weighed in in terms of his decision to run for president? >> we are incredibly close. my father is my best friend. my mentor. i sit across daily basis from a boardroom. he is great negotiator. i can see i will build. his frustration with politics build. people say things. they, always talking about these promises. they never actually deliver. one thing i say about my father, see this building buildings all over the world, when he says he will do something he does it. when it was falling apart he
8:33 am
saved for the city. ferry point, great golf course, couldn't be built, he came in, saved it. gets things done. he has inate ability to do that. he cuts red tape. he doesn't think about little minor details. he thinks very, very large about the big picture about getting things done. talks about the infrastructure of this country, right. we're bleeding all this money, but yes yet you've got airports like laguardia tall falling apart. walk through the terminals with acoustical tile ceilings crumbling and bathrooms you don't want to walk into. they're disgusting. i travel overseas for various jobs. you go to dubai, the terminals are marble with chandeliers. that is not how he wants america represented. maria: did anyone push back from the family. you're living in fishbowl. now you're in fishbowl where the media, everybody will scrutinize everything you said. did anybody push back, what about the siblings, say this is
8:34 am
not a good idea. >> truthfully not we think he would be phenomenal. we have inate perspective doing what we do. he is man that raised us. he is amazing. maria: how does the business background translate running free world. >> talk about spending, right? cebridges being built. tent 5, 6, billion dollars on a bridge he could build a for a third of that. bring a level of practicality. when you used to dealing with your own money. you're much more cautious with money. dealing with tons and tons of euros at the end. number you stop caring. when last time anybody talked about national deficit. $18 trillion. doesn't happen. no one even speaks about it. they don't care about balancing budgets. it is absolutely contrary to the normal business world. maria: before you go, eric, tell us your take on real estate right now in new york and across the world. what are you seeing out there? >> listen in new york obviously prices have gone tremendously
8:35 am
high. will be interesting to see what happens with russia. they're delivering less money. oil prices taken a big it h look at china, softer economy. on very high-end you will see a slow down in those 100 million-dollar plus apartments. florida they'ring very well. tax incentive. all of central and south america wants to be in miami. see 300-dollar market in 2009 and 10 is now 1500-dollar market. some markets are doing great and some markets never pulled out of recession. we'll watch your dad's campaign. >> thank you. maria: forget the steroid scandal. cheating in the major league baseball moved from the syringe to the keyboard according to allegations. former commissioner fay vincent will join us next. back in a minute. ♪

8:38 am
8:39 am
you maria: welcome back. major league baseball doing major damage control on word of cheating allegations against one of its most venner rated teams. adam shapiro is live outside mlb headquarters with the latest. adam, good morning to you. >> good morning, maria. what we're talking about here is possibly the first case of corporate espionage involving a major league sports franchise. that is the st. louis cardinals.
8:40 am
according to "the new york times" which broke this story and now confirmed. the fbi is investigating a hack of the houston astros team database which took place in 2013. some. information was posted to the internet. what they discovered the hack originated from a house in which cardinals players had once rented. so that is part of what is going on here. major league baseball issuing a statement which they have said they have been aware of and fully cooperating with the federal investigation into the illegal breach of the astros baseball operations database. what is the key in all of this? general manager of the astros, mr. loon know, appierce he worked for cardinal. create ad database successful for the cardinals. went to the astros in 2011 as general manager. that seems when the problems occurred. might have been some sort of vendetta against him. nobody is saying who might be involved from the cardinals but the fbi is investigating.
8:41 am
maria. maria: thanks very much. adam shapiro. for more on baseball's shocking new scandal i want to bring in former nfl commissioner faye vincent on the fox business wire. thank you so much for calling in. >> thank you for having me. good morning, maria. maria: give me your observation here. >> i think these are allegations are serious. you and i have been around long enough to know we ought to wait and see exactly what the facts are. i have great respect for the cardinals. bill dewitt, who is the principal owner, is a man with long baseball history. my guess is that he had no part of it. think what we've got probably some younger people with bad judgment who think that all is fair in love and war when you and i know some things are illegal. maria: i mean the st. louis cardinals. one of the most successful teams in baseball over what, two decades. this is really hard for the fans to swallow. >> yeah, i don't think the fans should get terribly upset. i think baseball will handle it with the fbi.
8:42 am
my guess it will blow over very quickly of. the cardinals are very well-run, they're popular. they're successful. i think this is behavior at a level where some young people, my guess is very young people, exercised very bad judgment. maria: what should, what should the current commissioner be doing now in light of all this. >> i think he is doing the right thing. it is not his place to investigate. let the fbi do it. when the fbi is close to finishing they will call him. they will give him a briefing and, you know i hope he puts down some very harsh punishment. i think this is, as one of your people said a first. i think the commissioner will come down very hard on the miscreants. you have to teach some of these people when they make a mistake they pay a very heavy price. maria: what would be the punishment to fit the crime here? are you talking about taking guys out? >> i think you would have to look at the facts and how much people knew and what advice they had. you know, i think that's a case
8:43 am
where you want to wait and see what the real details are of who did what but i think the punishment ought to fit what happened. these are serious acts of bad judgment and probably illegality. maria: we know that the competition is fierce in baseball and throughout sports but can you give us a sense how things changed over the years? basically if you see more fierce and competitive, even hostile sort of mentality than ever before to sort of lead to something like this? >> well, i -- put your finger on it. seems to me what is going on here there is an awful lot of money at stake. when i left baseball in '92 or three, baseball was, now more than a $12 billion business. there is awful lot of money sloshing around. people are competitive, aggressive. they want bonuses. they want to be successful. they want to be a hero and they
8:44 am
cross lines they shouldn't cross. i think money is the root of this. it is everywhere. and it seems to me baseball has to get things in perspective. maria: all at a time that actually baseball has been left behind in terms of advancing. this is the one sport that you've got an older demographic. not as much technology usage as others like, you know, the nfl or you know, hockey. so what is baseball need to do in addition to if, in fact these allegations are true, clean up its act in terms of getting baseball to the next step in that money game, in terms of getting viewers in their seats at the stadium. >> well i think they are related. i think baseball has to stand for things. one of the great things about baseball history it always had a sense of its own integrity. it cared how baseball presented itself. it has been the national pastime. it seems to me that baseball has
8:45 am
to gets it values in line with some of the current activities, the computers at the heart of the new baseball. baseball is making a fortune off and other things like that. and here you have technology that can be used in a way that's competitively corrosive. so baseball will have to stand for its principles. when it does that it always gets fans to agree with it. the fact that baseball is so revered is a consequence of baseball having done a lost right things. and, it goes back to baseball's stance on gambling, baseball's stance on steroids. a variety of things where baseball may have wandered around but they eventually get it. i think they will get it right this time. maria: i'm with colleagues on set, sandra smith, monica crowley. i know you're a chicago die-hard. do you think something like this will turn off fans? >>depends on how hard mlb comes
8:46 am
down on them. in the case of the nfl, i think the general public saw that the nfl was reluctant to come down hard on first engaging in activity that was frowned upon. i think same thing goes here. how hard could mmlb come down on these guys if this comes to prue wigs if it comes true? >> they could put them out of baseball for life and make it stick. one of the things like baseball, gambling deterrent. when we got pete rose out of baseball and said it was for life we mean it. that is strong deterrent. you don't see gambling in baseball. everybody knows if you touch the third rail you're gone. steroids is a case where baseball stumbled around. when it eventually got the steroid issue. a-rod was out for a year because of misbehavior. there are consequences to misbehavior.
8:47 am
maria: before i let you go have to ask one thing. go ahead, monica. >> that is great point fey raised. we live in culture where we win at any cost. tom brady, debate gate. couple years before they were caught cheating against the new york jets. there have to be consequences. win at any cost culture if there aren't consequences or potentially illegal behavior it will continue. maria: that is what you're saying faye. get your thoughts. on all kansas city royals all-star team. think it is fun and kind of silly in a way because the all-star game is now important. gives home field advantage in the world series. when you let the fans control it, i mean, to vote 35 times, why is that? why is it 35 and not 38. why is it 35 and not 30. the whole thing seems a little bit -- because it does determine the world series advantage. maria: so, who picks the number?
8:48 am
why the different number. >> i have no idea. that is part of the problem. the number doesn't make any sense. my own, my own view, they ought to let managers, people in baseball who know who is doing well, pick the players. let the fans have a minor role but if you're going to have it be an important game, as it is, you have to let it be determined who is doing the best job on the field. the players and the managers know that. and the fans get confused. maria: how much is this issue creating noise around the players ability to do what you're saying and just play a good game, do the job? >> the players, they go out and they play because it is their lifetime and it is their livelihood and their records are important to their income. but the fans voting 35 times for a kansas city catcher, even though he is a great catcher, distort this whole process. seems to me it is very confusing
8:49 am
to the public. why can you vote 35 times? doesn't make sense. maria: yep. good to have you on the show. fay, thank you very much for weighing in. >> thanks for having me. maria: former commissioner fay vincent there. want to look for extra cash? amazon may have you deliver their packages for pay. we'll tell you what amazon is doing next on "mornings with maria." ♪ here at td ameritrade, they love innovating.
