the things that investors were little worried about like deporting 141 many people, -- 11 million people. maria: we had had a jpmorgan analyst this week. a cut will raise s&p 500 earnings by 20%. dagen: yet scott minor pointed out that people are worried about the yield and higher interest rates. that's not because of inflation. the protective security tells you it's not an inflation security, it's simply bonds and rates are going up because there's going to be better growth down the road. >> if we have to accelerate rate increases because growth is stronger, that's a good thing and not a bad thing. maria: i want to find out how
you're allocating capital. getting it now, i don't know. we will talk about it. maria: notre dame coach is with us. john bolton is here. alan miller, nintendo of america president reggie is here and actor and manufacturing job's advocate john is with us. big three hours, stay with us today. meanwhile president-elect trump deal with carrier getting backlash, united steel workers 1999 president blasted jones on cavuto coast to coast on tuesday. >> trump and governor pence are taking credit for 350 jobs that are research and development jobs that were staying here in indianapolis from the start. i think peel would feel a lot better if tax dollars will go to
try to save the company that was struggling, but they are uncomfortable about a highly profitable company. maria: with that trump fired back. chuck jones president of the united states steel worker since 1999 has done a terrible job, if the steel workers were any good, they bowled have spent more job in indiana. spend more time working and less talking. gabi, your reaction. >> vintage trump is back, certainly. unfortunately for him this twitter storm is going to take something away from the positive coverage that he's been getting for cabinet appointments and, you know, it really raises some questions about whether there are going to be people who criticize him and hold him
accountable and can only do so in fear of retaliation. he went hard instead of simply releasing the details to prove his claims otherwise which is what i would have done if i was in his situation. maria: you don't want to see this fight on twier. >> on the wasn't hand i don't want to see the fight and the other hand he got elected. people are appreciating the fact that he's not hearing the same old. we understand that the workers don't always like the union and you're always in direct competition with the president. as the union, if you don't want to look that easy and we need you to make it right. so in some ways, i don't love it but at the same time he's speaking to people that say, good, he's cutting through all the bs with a quick tweet. >> he really understands the modern media and communication and how he can pretty usk effectively cut autoall of the
layers of the news that gets between him and the message he wants to deliver, it's not what you call presidential in terms of the way prior presidents have communicated but this maybe what is presidential going forward because it's a more effective way to get the message out. dagen: column today is trump as lady gaga. [laughter] dagen: trump is a political performance artist who challenges what we think is normal. that's refreshing in this day and anal. we talked yesterday about all the technology ceo's are going to meet with trump next week. maria: wednesday. dagen: tech business is built on disruption and disrupting the norms for a better future. how is that not donald trump? that is donald trump. maria: right. dagen: down the road, if he delivers on his broad promises the kind of performance art that
we see day-to-day, hey, it's entertaining. maria: it sure. retired general john kelly for homeland security and wwe cofounder linda mcmahon. gabi, what's your take on the candidates and what they bring to the table? >> starting with scott pruitt most qualified people, individuals to carry out campaign promise of scaling back the environmental regulations and leading america to energy independence. scott pruitt on several occasions sued the epa for burdensome regulations. he's been opponent of the clean power plant for the obama administration and strong supporter of the keystone pipeline. all of these things are -- have
led to many critics in the environmental group saying he's going to be a terrible epa administrator but i think this is really a solid choice for donald trump. the same goes for general john kelly as the head of dhs, highly respected former four-star marine general. he has significant experience along -- commanding marines in afghanistan, in iraq, he has helped the obama administration oversea the closure of gitmo and criticized obama's policies both abroad. lisa mcmahon her and donald trump are friends for a long time. now has 800 employees world wild. maria: we are just getting official release that, in fact, he's intending to nominate all of the above, so that was great
characterization from you, gabi. dagen: with scott pruitt, the ocea and rivers are going to suddenly catch fire because he is just -- he's going to destroy planet earth as we know. for the sake of air we breath and the planet we will leave our children, his nomination must be blocked to the woman who passed the affordable care act, she's really concerned about our health on that one. but in terms -- he's a lawyer who is going to challenge the overreach and overstepping of obama's epa. that is is what's going to happen. that agency and the bureaucrats have been interpreting and reinterpreting statute after statute to essential crush the energy industry which hurts all businesses, which hurts all individual. maria: what dill wilbur ross tell us, 7,000 regulations.
dagen: donald trump delivering exactly what he promised. >> very smart about the nominations that he's making. the nominations that are all about deregulation, all about the things that the market is excited about are out of the mainstream, they are the ones who are really doing to make democratics in the senate upset but when you look at the ones that could upset the market, like defense, potentially mitt romney at stake, he's going for more consensus republicans that are very reassuring. again, i think he's pointing his hand pretty well. maria: incredible strategy. dagen: anything that the times hate, you love. [laughter] >> people that aren't going to be swayed by trying to cater to another group. that sounds like you hate queen, anything that's queen power, that's not true. somebody who has had guts to sue the epa before. that's something important and give power to oil and gas. i can tell you that my friends in oil and gas have been laying people for years. we have charityies that they mod
to have. maria: that's been the word about the epa, gabi, now, for several years in terms of the rule-making coming out of the epa and the rules rising and the numbers of rules really hurting business. >> right. >> yeah. they've certainly been one of the most overreaching federal agencies that we see and donald trump to put scott in charge we are going to see significant change, a lot of the regulations scaled back. for every new regulation, he anticipates killing two existing regulations and i'm sure that that will be put into practice at the epa going forward under his administration. maria: i like that rule allot. when you add a regulation, take back two. >> take one back. [laughter] dagen: you have two words on the bureaucrats in dc who like their job, look out. >> democrats and senate are
going to -- rules come back to haunt you. they change the rules where it only take 51 votes and now republicans are going to easy make nomination pix. maria: thank you. we will see you soon. we will be right back healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.

dagen: who called it right when futures starting selling off, who saw prosperity down the road? maria bartiromo. maria: thank you. yeah. dagen: looking for rally yesterday, it continues. maria: it's fun to watch because it's all about fundamentals. you don't want to see a move in stocks based on things that are not integral to growth. this is about economic growth. dagen: rolling bag regulations too because that once again as you pointed out repeatedly flows to the bottom line of a business. >> don't underestimate the impact of looking two and a half to $3 trillion that's been trapped overseas by our crazy tax policy. we are the only country in the world, for gosh sakes, don't
bring money back and create jobs, leave it overseas or we will hit you with another 35% tax rate. by getting rid of that, 3 and a half trillion dollars back into the economy. there's no telling what you can achieve. maria: soft bank ceo investing in the u.s. the dow industrials posted 12th record close yesterday since election night. it is up better than 1200 points since then. investors are cheering the reduced regulation plan under president-elect trump. i want to bring in jon hilsenrath chief correspondent at the wall street journal. steven mnuchin, 3 and a half to 4% growth, how viable to do you see that. jon: we could see that for a short period. you know, i think 2 to 3% might be viable. you were just talking about the to be market, i just wanted to say one of the things that
impressed me most about yesterday's rally is what we are seeing in dow transports. they are often seen as leading indicater of where the broader market is going, 2 and a half percent yesterday, the first all-time high since 2014, that's a sign that the market believes we are getting more growth. ria: great point you make. transportation average has been on fire. these are cement companies, infrastructure companies that will benefit from the infrastructure plan. dagen: also the dow but also the russell 2000 has been completely running away and that speaks to make it easier for businesses to hire, easier to grow, infrastructure spending would benefit a lot of these smaller companies. maria: yeah. >> also a small businessman let me tell you that the tax reform shows huge potential for map cap companies. if we get a flatter, fairer tax, apple's tax bill is going to go
up and small business' tax bill is going to go way down. dagen: that's what i said about tax reform over and over againened when you have exceedingly complicated tax policy, it actually benefits the biggest, it benefit it is rich and benefits the biggest companies with the best accountants and attorneys. maria: you would think so. dagen: you royally screw individuals and small businesses. >> that's where the jobs come from. by making this change in tax burden, causing bigger companies to pay more and smaller companies a lot less less the overall revenue -- jon: on top of this trump rally, we had an economy that was getting back on its feet again and priming the markets for this move up, you know. we had gdp growth came back after a really weak first half. unemployment coming down 4.6.
it looked like the economy itself was getting back on the feet and you have the double whammy that investors are responding positive to. maria: russell 2000 up 14%. european central bank meeting today. jon: right. maria: what are you expecting out of mario drogi and you're expecting the fed to raise rates when they meet on the 14th? >> ecb has a buying program that they have been doing a couple of years, it looks like they are going to extend that. there's so much political uncertainty and the economy is so weak in europe that they're afraid if they end their bond buying program they'll get something like what we got a few years ago, the taper tantrum where long-term interest rates shoot up and disturb the markets. it looks like they're going to extend that for about six months. that's going to be supportive of
the dollar and hold the euro down. as far as the fed is concerned, that's baked in the cake, consider it done, quarter percentage point rate increase next week. the important point there is that the markets expect that, that's not going to be a surprise. the really big question is what do they do next year. i think the fed goes into a wait and see mode because they want to see what kind of fiscal policies are coming out of the new administration. they are expecting to do two rate increases this year, i'm sorry, next year. it's probably not going to happen until later in the year because they want to see what kind of fiscal landscape they have to play on. maria: good point. somebody came on the show expect more than 2 if the economy is expect -- jon: trumpan to get a 4% growth economy. when you have full employment. if you job down to low 4's or
3's, fed is not going to let that happen. dagen: it could stay there, jon, because labor participation still at the lowest level since late 70's. jon: that's true. dagen: people flood the market, i finally fl optimistic, unemployment rate wouldn't necessarily tumble. >> isn't that what yellen says about a high-pressure economy. i want to take a little bit of risk with inflation to bring those people that dagen is talking about back to the workforce, won't see give more rope? she's prepared, the jobless rate is below where they think it is going to be in the long run. it's just a question of how do you define high-pressure economy. you see stocks going through the roof, inflation back up over 2%. you see inflation of 4%, the fed is not going to standby and watch that. they remember what happened in 2008. they don't want this head all
over again. maria: great to see you, thank you so much. we will watch. we will get the info. coming up the president elect enjoying a rally on his own. why favorability ratings are higher than ever. bright partnership between ge and amazon, online retailers alexa, back in a afoot and lightd i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, minute. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
maria: good thursday morning, everybody. back welcome. thank you so much for being with us. i'm maria bartiromo, it is thursday december 8th, top stories. 6:30 a.m. on the east coast. pick for top administrator positions as cabinet takes place. polls out saying that the president elect's favorability is 50%. first lady michelle obama weighing on the transition of power. >> once you do what you can do, you rest easy. it was in the hands of the american people. i think that anything that i felt about the election, i said and, you know, and i standby, this is -- this is our democracy and this is how it works. and so we are ready to work with the next administration and make sure that they are as successful as they can be because that's what's best for this country. maria: president elect plans to stop in ohio today to meet with victims of the tragic attack at
ohio state university before continuing onto iowa to continue trump's thank you tour. new details this morning surrounding devastating wild fire in tennessee. two teens, juveniles charged with arson following the blaze that left 14 people dead. this coming as the stars unit for the victims, the major names joining dolly parton as she helps to rebuild the area. apple is eyeing a blockbuster deal to bring films to i tunes before anybody else. the deal could cost you big dollars, we will tell you about it coming up. markets this morning continue to go rally. the trump rally rolls on, futures indicating the market will open at yet another all-time hgh with gain about 8 pints right now on the futures dow industrial. dow closing yet another record close yesterday as talk shifting to dow 20,000 or 19,525, stuart varney made the prediction a couple of weeks ago. in europe stocks are mixed. investors are waiting comments
from mario drogi. we will bring you all the headlines from the ecb meeting today. 35 points. in asia overnight, stocks were mostly higher. nikkei was top performer hitting highest level since january up one and a half percent. a new bloomberg national poll shows that trump's favorability has jumped up to 50% which was taken on august 16th. joining us right now lou. >> thank you, delighted to be with you. maria: what do you think is causing the increase in favorability for president-elect donald trump? >> he provides leadership. he has a vision and wants to take this country and he has a plan, when you have a vision and a plan, people are going to follow it. maria: that's what you said earlier.
>> absolutely, greetings from william william & mary and the constatino family. >> john was my favorite. >> he really has played the symbolism of the carrier job savings and so forth. what do you think the next big moment for presidency is? >> ic -- i think the fact that putting together a cabinet. he's named three different generals to his cabinet and i think that is great. the reason i say that, number one, they have a great education, two, they are outstanding moral courage but more important they they know how to take a group of people, they know how to put together a team and they hold people accountable. this nonsense about well, they'll start a war, that's ridiculous. i've been to afghanistan, i've been to iraq, i've been to a hospital. a general understands more than anybody else about the difficulties of going war and
the harm it causes so many people. you're not playing video games in washington where you have somebody who has never been in the army and military and never had to make the decisions. let's go do this. i think he's on the right track, as long as he continues to have the vision and the plan and hold people accountable in his organization, he will continue to survive but there's always going to be people that aren't going to be happy about it but that's because they have a different objective. he has an objective. as long as you have the same objective, you will never have a problem with anymore. it's when you have two different objectives that problems occur. maria: saturday is the 117th game. it's going to feature uniforms made by nike and under armour. lou, what do you make of donald trump attending the game?
>> everybody should go to one game. having been in the army i'm tired of losing 13 years to the naval academy. i've been up to west point. but the one thing that i was impressed with, you realize that according to the west point, a west point graduate is a greater command than a harvard graduate. that tells you volume about it. these people -- football won't be the greatest in the world, however, the young men are -- i was at notre dame. i have nothing but the greatest respect for the people on that field and that represents the best of this country. maria: you're a military man's wife. tell us about how you're seeing this. so many military people in trump's administration now. >> no, i think it's brilliant because there's one thing to have theory about war and there's another thing when you
have actually fought it. when you look at nominations like mattis, these aren't people that this could be, no, this is the threat and what you don't know about the enemy is this and what ewe don't know about the ranchers in texas and border control are x, y and z. so i think it's brilliant somebody that has inside scoop and actually knows what's happening boots on the ground. dagen: have you been talking to donald trump, giving him some tips, pointers since he won the election? >> he doesn't need any advice from me, but just like anybody else, number one you put togetherra great group of assistant coaches and ewe come up with the plan and you expect people to carry out the plan and execute. there's going to be ups and there's going to be downs. most importantly,
president-elect trump, when things go up, be the leader, give people hope. you can't worry about the critics and the people. what you have to do is understand you are there for a greater mission. that's to help this country. keep them safe, make it prosperous and help people to get jobs. maria: coach, did you see yesterday the ceremony for the 75th ceremony harris and because he took a swipe at 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick. >> you can bet that the men and women that died 75 years ago never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard the national anthem being played. [cheers and applause] maria: your reaction, lou. >> i'm not surprised at all.
that is the way they feel. i have always told the football team prior to beginning of the year. we will not promote any cause other than university. we are not going to promote gay rights, you want to promote a cause, you do it on your own. we are not going to bring it on the football team. you're part of the team, that's it. if you want to do it on your own, god bless you. i think it's ridiculous for colin kaepernick to do that so show dishonor. go in the hospital in afghanistan, somewhere else, see the sacrifices that people have made. what made this country has made. he has the right to do it but doesn't mean it's right. maria: take that. dagen: yesterday i wanted to say and i know the coach is going to agree with me on this, if you think about pearl harbor and you think about all the young men who lied about their anal to fight for this country and in this day and age there are
plenty of people who are worried about words triggering and the need for safe spaces and therapy dogs because donald trump's election to the presidency bothers them, that's where -- there are a lot of people fighting for the country still but again there's been a shift in attitude among a lot of young people. >> to lose point not at west point, not among the death of our country. >> that's great. people should check because he's a pearl harbor survivor and it puts it all into perspective when you talk about the kids to bring hot cocoa after an election. maria: he wanted so much to be able to fight for this country. lou, good to see you, thank you. >> always a pleasure to be with you, maria. have a great day. maria: and to you as well. coming up apple could be seeing red. the colorful new changes that could be coming to the next

>> identify done it for 17 years. i run a hedge fund for 17 years. i think it was okay. we compounded 11%. i lost -- i feel it lost its soul for me and the idea of having information edge in the year of heavy compliance and regulation was almost a questionable skill. and so i found quite difficult to know what my job was, how do you have more information than analysts and other people but i always was a photographer. maria: we have been looking at your pictures as you have been speaking. it's incredible that you have up close shots of these wild man -- animals. >> amazon had as book of the year. maria: come on. how did you get so close to this
loiness? >> people are too far away from the animal. if you're going to photograph a beautiful woman, you're going to be very close. , why you would it be different with an annual mall? proximity affords magnificence and majesty to animals. that's the only way to remerge yourself and we tried very various different techniques to get as close as possible. maria: you put the camera right up there, you lure the animal close to the camera and you're in your jeep. >> sometimes it's the reverse of a zoo. with loins they have instincts. i wouldn't be there, i would be in a capable and maybe come toward the camera and with elephants i wouldn't be there but trajectories are more predictable. like financial analysis, employ predictive analysis.
maria: tell me about the tigers, all of the tigers, this is not photo shop, they were all standing like that? >> certainly. >> tell me about that. >> they're taken in northern china. this is a big conservation area and i worked to the chinese government to persuade me to put me in a capable in my news 30-degrees in hope that i could then, the tigers would come to a chicken handler who was behind me in a cage. we worked for three days. nobody spoke english. holding one hand and speaking to your translator and i was trying to get the position of the chicken with would determine where the tigers looked. i was saying throw the chicken to 3:00 o'clock andled go at 9:30 and he didn't understand my accent or language. finally after three days we got it right. there's an awful lot of light there because it's winter light, the snow. so i've got that fulfilled. all the tigers in focused.
it's a very rare and special picture. maria: you say that they can smellnd that's how you lure them. what did you put on the camera for them to walk over? >> with the tigers just chicken. maria: chicken. for the loiness it was spice. >> we can't afford tom ford, it has to be old spice. we called it the wolf of main street after the wolf of wall street that had been released. i was filming in montana. the best ghost towns in montana. we finished filming for a day and went to the war for whiskey. can we bring a wolf into the bar? of course. the picture is in the bar. worry free and even carry over the data you don't use. and right now get four lines and 20 gigs for only $40 per line.
and, just for the holidays, get the motoz play droid absolutely free. no trade-i required. i love you in that, no, i loveyou in that. no, i love you in that!

maria: that there's a morning everyone. thank you for being with us today. it's thursday december 8. your top stories right now have an a.m. on the east coast. could he be going back to major campaign promise. trump officially named oklahoma attorney general is the next had of the epa. they are weighing in on the transition of power. they appear to have in many
cases many different priorities. different styles. and in some cases starkly different bank accounts. the president-elect should benefit from the latitude and the significant latitude. >> inauguration day as more than a month away. they may now start in new york with the parade in the helicopter. he's calling on all protesters to disrupt the inauguration. they're changing their tune on the war on terrorism. he was surprised by isis. be careful what you do at 30,000 feet. the report that says the government might be spying on you to verify -- wi-fi airline
connections. eighty-five-dollar rock. we talked about this yesterday. the sick prizing success coming up. a look like this. there's another record close for 12th time. it doesn't seem like it's so hard after all. in europe stocks are flat this morning. they're set to speak at 8:30 a.m. eastern. we will bring them to you as it is we hit the tape.
this is a route to being a banana republic. the people are by and large are extremely frustrated with the way the government does not perform. it is not one of them. people want to know why they've lost civility. look at your answer. >> i listen to these people call for disruption who are wildly upset. about the election of donald trump. where they during the election -- during the actual election cycle. spoken in terms of donald trump selection now they are not satisfied with it. at some point you have to accept the results of the election and move on.
if that's what they want to do again the more outrageous their behavior the more unreasonable. i think the bigger the public reaction against it. >> how would you characterize the team that they were putting together so far. the pace of the transition the pace of the transitions in recent years. it's a delayed understanding that trump won the election and so when they see the unfolding of that and what it means when you take over the executive branch of government and hold the senate in the house the realization sinks and upset level goes up. this is good have to be something they get used to. i think it's gonna be very
active. for than he is president trump. to have the epa. he tapped general john kelly. and linda mcmahon. to spearhead the small business administration. what do you think they say about the leadership style. >> i think it means he's gonna carry through on his promises that he made to the voters that was on his election. i think he would be an outstanding administrator. it really demonstrates a problem in washington there are a lot of people in the democratic party that said the have of the epa should be someone that favors a bigger epa. and more environmental regulations. once something happens you can never roll it back. if you disagree in any
particular with a situation that you inherit some how somehow you are not qualified. that is fundamentally wrong. this agency is out-of-control and has been for quite a while. i don't think that is what the framers of the constitution intended the senate's role to be. that is not what the senate's role was for almost all of our history. they should look at competence. these are disqualifying factors. disagreed with the nominee is not a reason to vote against them. do you think that trump is making a mistake by walking back a little bit on his position with the dreamer act or do you think he is striking a reasonable compromise between what may be some of his more right-wing campaign supporters might have wanted.
do you think he is walking a deadline or do you think he's making a mistake by pulling back on some of the dreamer issues. there is a lot on the table here. you can do everything at once. that is a reality. and i have to say fundamentally what americans would really set them off is less the particulars about admission to the united states and more about the question of americanization. i think people recognize the strength of our society is people from all over the world have come here and been made americans. i think the tendency was to go on the other direction. to symbolize not by obama but by al gore who once talked about our wonderful national motto. out of one mini. that has been the secret of success. i think if we give up on americanization that is real problem.
how do you turn the ship so to speak. how did you without legislating it. by forcing the law. in a big a sack of executive order's. this is the ril of the obama approach. that lasts right up until a new president comes in. there is going to be some resolute -- legislation required. with majorities in both houses of congress how much you can get through. and if the democrats are choosing to be obstructionist which is entirely possible the new ticket to the country in 2018. people did not want to kings john bolton joining us. we will take you live it to
the next leg of the thank you to her. they're bringing us live a special coverage. join him tonight with that special coverage right here on fbn. hospitals are warning could trigger a public health crisis. what you need to know next. the pet rock is back. eighty-five dollars later back in a minute. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine.
maria: welcome back. an intense search underway right now. he was ejected from an 18 jet off the coast of southern japan. it was fine with another jet. it crashed. the identity has not been released. to mark cruise line ceiling to cuba. they had been given a green light to sail from florida to cuba in the new year. it says it will have to have been on march 7. the march. it actually set sail seven
months ago after the long process of getting approval from cuban authorities. how much would you pay to head coffee with vodka trump. that's the highest bid so far nine people have been on the coffee date auction. twelve days are left. there are some caveats here. it has to be at trump tower in have to pay your own way even after you bid $50,000 and you have to go on the date sometime in 2017. with that keep on bidding. yesterday we told you about the rock been sold. the frugal shoppers who didn't want to spend $85 they also
wiped out the stock of the $65 rock virgin -- version. i guess the economy is in great people are buying that. no word on whether they will actually restock. this year's winter for the second year in a row. after accounting for recent box office disappointments. they returned $2.80 per every dollar he was paid. one of the stones gross just $77 million domestically. it was released in late may. the couple eventually reached a $7 million settlement. so now you know. he looks like not johnny depp anymore.
that's what they're paying him for. and how about that rock. just what we think all the things from the 70s can come back they do anyway. maria: hospitals are saying they are fearing it could be a costly mistake. what you need to know next. an election recount is underway. federal judge decided to halt the efforts in michigan. back in a minute. the real gift isn't what's inside the box... it's what's inside the person who opens it.
maria: welcome back. president-elect donald trump has called the plan a disaster. mitch mccoell promised that repealing the healthcare law would be the first priority come january 3. alan, great to see you. i think so much for joining us. as a veteran of the healthcare industry in general what is your reaction to this. should it be repealed and replaced quacks. >> the problem is that it covers 21 million people that have not been covered before. through exchanges. the problem is that it's hard to pay for the insurance companies. they don't have the young people that they expected.
that's been the problem. you have to try to fix that. but there is a lot of good things in it the both sides say there they're getting key. the children are on the policies of their parents if you have a pre-existing condition that does not disqualify you. those are good things. but it's important for the economy i have jonathan gruber on recently. one of the architects and he said it has nothing to do with economic growth. it is 18% of the economy healthcare. obviously it's too expensive it's can hurt economic growth. the other problem is you had 21 million people that have coverage. i can't imagine that any parties get a cut these people off. how do we phase-in different economies. but we have to have those
people covered. >> became allowed those 21 million to lose coverage. these are sick people but there is some hospital insiders were the leaders that if you repeal obama care it could cause an unprecedented public health crisis. it could cost hospitals i hundred $65 billion by the next decade. what do you think about this. if hundreds of hospitals do you growth that. in order to get obama care put together hospitals have reimbursements reduced. the traffic was we will review some of that but you'll get 21 million more people who well have coverage and so it will impact your bad debt they were supported so that
they could cover certain mandates and now if it was to be repealed which i doubt then you have to take the cuts at the hospitals willingly observed and you have to put them back. you're saying the hospital industry is going to see a huge drop off in revenue if this comes to pass. the cuts are not restored. donald trump has set in those two areas that they will say --dash mcstay. were in every congressional district. hospital probably is the biggest employer and every area. it's part of the economy. we have to be efficient. you can cut them away down and expect the american people will be properly served with
those are in need. tell us why that is important. we bought the adult portion of their business. it's very successful in its growing and we have a business here now we put together a really wonderful business in the uk. and this adds to it very complementary a lot of people wanted this company. and they selected us obviously we paid for it but the management supported us. our people are very excited about it. i'm very excited. yesterday the stock price traded down. i want to ask about this. it is alleging that psychiatric patients were kept lower than they needed to just to make money.
hattie respond to this. i read it briefly. we are answering it also the writer really didn't have an understanding of clinical procedure. it's mostly doctors and government in hospital lead deals with the patient. and what they're referring to in the coating. as i can be administrators in the company that will decide. how long that they are sitting at the hospital. and it's inaccurate. i did impact of the stock. where it is a growth come from in the next three to five years.
there's been an incredible amount of hospital consolidation. or is it organic growth. 10million people a month for getting into medicare. they get older and they tend to use hospitals more. that is the growth of the population that is an ongoing margin or dividend. that's why we see the future positively. great to have you on the show. we will talk about that with the panel next. how the singer kid rock said he's cashing in on a trumpet victory. packing a minute.
his tune on the war on terrorism. he said now that he was surprised by asis. our country is less secure than it was eight years ago. we are grappling with the calamities in the failed foreign policies. as an obama called for strategic patients. too often he was inclined to tell us what he wouldn't do to defend this country rather than what he would do. >> the very latest on the war on terrorism coming up. for more if it's in new york city reported to have birth defects related to this virus. with the details coming. take a look. the trump rally continues to this morning. another record high at the opening of trading with the dow up to 20 points right now. it closed and another record close yesterday. since last month the election
they had gained over $1 trillion major moves. he will talk about the future of monetary policy. in indonesia overnight. it's the highest level since january. kid rock cashing in on the trump craze. and from princesses to toads. nintendo has a real peach on its hands. i will talk with the ceo of nintendo coming up. president obama admitted to cnn and the special report yesterday that his administration underestimated
the rise of isis. the ability to initiate major land offenses that was not on my intelligence radar screen. this comment of course is a stark contrast to what he said during an interview back in 2014. >> i think we can underestimate the danger. they are a tariff -- terrorist network that has not limited itself to the periodic attack but have aspirations to control that possess resources and effectively an army that poses a great dangers to our allies we could destabilize entire regions that are very
dangerous for us. take, we know that t president was receiving daily briefings about the rise of isis for several years what is your reaction to this. >> i think it's fair and some ways for a president come in and i have all the information. when he was elected it's fair for him to be surprised and underestimate some of our enemies. i don't think we tell the public a lot about the enemy. on some levels i think that that is understandable. telling the american public that it's okay and we just need to be gentle with everybody i know it's a slippery slope between saying we need to be aware and still ask people to be reasonable and not go rogue at every person that looks like they could be a terrorist or from the middle east. san bernardino could've been prevented if we miss all of
the signs of the terrorists living terrorist living in the united states. he was surprised by asis. i think what he's really trying to do is put a little bit more of a gloss over the early pull back from iraq. he made a campaign promise. there was confidence that they were ready. and obviously when put to the test it wasn't true. by his behavior in front of cameras since the rise of isis. referring as the jv team. he goes golfing after the beheading of james foley and then talks about will, i should've understood the optics better. he's at a baseball game when
radical islamic terrorists attacked a nato ally at a baseball game in cuba. doing the wave. so over and over again i think that his behavior actually tells the american people how he feels about this threat and he doesn't see it as grave as great as it is. who wants to think that everybody can just get along. is the difference of getting a secretary of defense than a secretary of defense that has fought in iraq and the middle east. he's getting people that are very familiar with the enemy and how they work. they're not collecting this army. its individual people that are living among the stars that will rise up and like you said take over. that's where he is mistaken.
they see attacks on america as justified. you see that. and that kind of goes to the root of some thinking. if we just remove ourselves from the world stage even more than somehow and they won't come to america soil. it doesn't worry people about trump. i think you're right. there people that feel that way but the other dimension of it is that there are people on the right to feel like we need to bring everything home. i don't think that is a workable answer either. i think degen's point about obama not understanding the sum of the visual messages that he was sending. we can all love a donald donald trump or hate him or be somewhere in the middle.
he will understand the visual media dimensions. they were saying that we have to be careful how we classify u.s. versus islam. oregon had more attacks. if you classify them incorrectly you will provoke them. if it matters so much then why would you go golfing. that is what a lot of people in this country cannot get their heads and hearts around. they're bringing them coverage. join us as we continue to follow.

no change in interest rates. you are not seen a major reaction but we will see what they say in terms of that's the key. the press conference is where it is all at. they want to know what is the plan for their quantitative using purchases whether they can to be tapering them after march or whether they will extend the program further. and it was up as much as a half a%. they have muffed the press conference in the past. will he walk that exact line they are wanting of giving confidence that he's not going to abruptly end this program but also not give too mu
fear and uncertainty over the course of the european economy. they want to be able to express a good sense of confidence but that he will be very measured and how he tapers back from this conversation. it's almost astonishing what we've seen in the shift. the need for more monetary policy to fiscal policy. just with the simple election of donald trump in terms of what is on deck in terms of a donald trump's plan for plan for the economy. that will be another source of uncertainty in europe because there is a huge election in france. they are either going to embrace the free lunch. we don't have to reform we just had to leave the euro or taking a reaganesque restructure of the economy. then you can actually see the kind of recovery in france

welcome back. kids and adults alike are reliving the super adventures. it's one of the hottest toys of t year. next week the videogame icon is making a jump from the nintendo console and a brand-new adventure. mario is coming to iphones. reggie, good to see you. thank you so much for joining us. this is a major departure for the company. but what we see with literally billions of its parts --dash make smart devices there out there in markets where we don't have a physical presence with our consul business it's a great opportunity for them to have that. tech to us about the classic nes. it said it select games are over 20 years old. why is it still so popular.
when we conceived this. what we saw as opportunity where consumers who had played mario and zelda 30 years ago now. and we've hit that market. and it's been a strong seller for us. the biggest challenge is making sure that we are constantly punishing into the marketplace. it's a challenging holiday gift. they have the it holiday gift. we are constantly putting more in the market. those people that wanted before christmas to think they will still be able to get it. they are putting out messages when you have put in stores. all the key retailers. how is this a game changer for nintendo.
it's a great designed game. they have a personal involvement in designing the game. you play with one hand. it is deep for an app driven game. we see this is a great opportunity were asking the consumer to try it and buy it. it's innovation is that you can play on the big screen and then when you have to go to will work you have to go somewhere the system comes right out of the docking station. and the reaction so far has been fantastic. we have not announced pricing
we will be announcing all that information. as we look at the sweet spot of the marketplace that's where we will target it with this device. the challenge is that it is everywhere from free to play and free to start to the 60-dollar experience to 300 or 400 or 500-dollar experiences dollars experiences on the console market. for us where you can analyze that very carefully to decide at least for nintendo switch where that product needs to be. again for super mario one it is built from the ground up. this is not an nintendo classic game that we reconfigured for smart device. that's what you can expect for smart device games. we will develop these from the ground up. because you would think now entering the smart phone market this opens you up to a
whole new group of products. it's way so we can bring the classic ip into the marketplace. is a huge opportunity. the beautiful thing about pokemon go is that aside from the half a billion downloads the impact that it head on our consol game business was tremendous. they have year-over-year growth in the last five months and then the moon that we launched two weeks ago was the best lunch we've ever had here in nintendo of america. it's been phenomenal. that's overlooking the sea. to see the impact on the main consol business. what kind of a holiday season are you expecting. we are seeing strong results for our 3s business. we think when it launches on december 15 it will be fantastic.
we are very optimistic. we do believe the global economy improves and 17. our revenue is outside of japan. thank you so much. america's favorite mailman. we will talk to john next. mornings with maria are next. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.

thoef worked with them they know them they bring a lot of expertise to the job. maria: . >> dayday scenario other than outrage from left about donald trump tweeting, you had -- again, i -- i think that they complete lost their minds about trump's pick to overhaul run epa he attorney general scott pruitt just want to know what you make of that, how tough pruitt might be in bureaucrats epa how crushing business. >> i don't know -- he is one of the ones ifrs referringe with everyonesing a good record as noticed by kel quell a moment ago the guy qualified to do this worked in regulatory area there has to be a change has to be legislation, and regulations also adding to them some comes from the top i think donald trump made it very clear that he would like to see the agenciesllow sma businesses, to do what they do
