6:03 am
good morning, thank you so much for joining us. >> you bet. maria: lots to talk about today. dagen: particularly with the terror attack, again it's time and again and time again really beginning with the terror attack in nice using a vehicle and at what point do authorities step up and prevent this because apparently there were no blockades from prevent this from happening in barcelona. maria: these vehicles, this is low-tech. how do you get ahead of something so basic as getting in your car and ramming into a crowd of people? >> if it was one they should have gotten ahead of is this one and not because it keeps happening but because there was a variety of individuals and attacks involved in the situation. explosive belts at least nine people, there should have been some kind of human intelligence source that said something is going on here, you need to watch these people. maria: that's our top story, obviously. spain held a minute of silence in barcelona remembering the victims of yesterday's attack, a
6:04 am
van attack in heart of barcelona left at least 13 people dead yesterday more than 100 others wounded when a white van smashed into pedestrians on barcelona's iconic, hours later attackers mowed down several people with a car before being killed in shootout 60 miles away. that was in the seaside resort, according to spanish authorities, three men have now been arrested in connection to the barcelona attack, though the driver is still thought to be at large, isis has claimed responsibility for the attack. president trump responded to the terrorism tweeting this, the united states condemn it is terrorist attack in barcelona spain and will do whatever is necessary to help be tough and strong, we love you. speaking from panamá city, vice president pence vowed to stand with the people of spain in the fight for justice. >> whoever is responsible should know that the united states of america together with our allies will find and punish those
6:05 am
responsible and drive the evil of radical islamic terror from the face of the earth. maria: that's what we are talking about today. andrew peek i want to get your take on the fact that the cia, there were report that is the cia warned barcelona that there could be an attack coming, what went wrong that they saw something coming? >> right, the trouble is without actionable intelligence this individual or this location or this plot, there's not that much that's helpful in the information. what's been publicly reported it was a public place in this city potentially on the street and few spanish authorities are going to say, okay, can you give us anything more specific and because spain isn't in the select group of five eyes intelligence countries that has access to the top, top secret u.s. intelligence information, there's probably not that much more the cia could give them even if they knew. >> spain, by the way has been diligent about counterterrorism
6:06 am
since 2004, since the ma did train bombings, this isn't a country that's been caught flat-footed. they've been active in trying to combat this stuff. dagen: spain even recently according to many have been overstepping in terms of policing social media. they've been a very aggressive at that. there was pop singer, i think, who made a threat against -- a singer who made a threat against spain's king and it was kind of a joking threat and he went to jail. it would seem obvious that there would be concrete barriers there to prevent these types of things from happening. i've been there. the equivalent would be literally can be as crowded assay times square in new york city but starting with the nice vehicle attack last year, that was in june of 2016, 86 people
6:07 am
dead there, there's been nice, berlin last december, the westminster in london and then london bridge attack and that's not even naming all of the vehicle terrorist vehicle attacks in europe in just the last year. maria: the street, that particular street that you say you've been to, it's interesting the way it's set up because people walk in the middle of the street. it's wide open, you're a target. >> oh you can talk about putting up barriers, people are weaving in and out. you can't control in tourist areas. they are always going to be the threat. dagen: you learn to live that. you learn to live with greater security checks on airplanes. it might be annoying.
6:08 am
>> the free speech talking about being overstepping and you have to learn to live with that sort of thick if you're going to be effective. >> after 9/11 they put new security measures where all cars and vans had to get checked. i mean, what we are seeing now is an ordinary van transformed into a deadly weapon, how do you prevent that? >> no, as i said in our first comment, i think it comes down to human intelligence. i respect what you're saying but there's only so many times you can hardened every cultural or soft target site in a country from infrastructure and beaches. getting inside the networks that are doing this, particularly if they're based as some reporter indicated the spanish cities in africa that are sort of overseas territories that offer easier way into the country. i think that really has to be
6:09 am
where the effort is focused not endlessly hardened up the soft targets. maria: markets react to targets in barcelona, yesterday tough day in markets, dow industrials down nearly 275 points, that posted the second biggest decline of the year travel and leisure stocks among the hardest hit. things going on in the market away from terrorism. speculation that we could see cabinet resignation and the white house had to come out and defend the situation and say, no, gary cohn is focused on going what he's doing and he's not stepping down. what do you think? >> a day that just built on itself in negative ways, you had disappointing earnings and all the speculation around gary cohn creating uncertainty and then barcelona. massive uncertainty here. fleebl markets are what's driving the stock market right now. there's optimism about where the global economy is going with barcelona and then you start to worry about that again. i think today it's going to be a
6:10 am
question is there calm in dc, how do people think about global markets and that's going to dictate where investors go. dagen:ly point this out, this is tough stuff, i talked about the president consistently bragging about record stock market, record stock market and yesterday it was clear evidence that his erratic unpredictable communication with the nation and even with his most followers has had an impact on the markets because the early selloff was all about gary cohn's potential resignation because investors are concerned if he's gone, then you don't -- tax reform, there's an even slimmer chance of it happening. maria: a lot of shaming going on yesterday. i know that larry summers was calling ceo's on the president's council say, you better step down, if you don't step down, you're unfit to lead. that's what he said to the ceo of wal-mart. he wrote on op-ed. doug did not step down but made a comment that he didn't agree with the way the president was
6:11 am
handling. i bet you that was going on yesterday in terms of cabinet positions. shaming of people in the cabinet saying you better step down and that's where the rumors started. the white house came out and they were add meant gary cohn is staying. maria: the shaming is incredible. that's the strategy on the left. that's what's going on right now. >> what's important, see the question has been how much do markets care about the president's agenda at this point? are they really hoping for tax cuts? what you saw yesterday with the gary cohn reaction markets do care about agenda which is why it's so important for the president to hold things together and move forward on that. if they see problems here, they are going to react strong.
6:12 am
>> congress doesn't really care in my view whether gary cohn is in the white house or not. that really won't affect tax reform proposal. dagen: maybe that's their problem. [laughter] >> that's my point, the perception. maria: you're right. >> he's not pulling votes on capitol hill. >> he's selling this thing. maria: right. yeah. we will see. this is -- this administration has got to have legislative victory. when people come back to september, 12 days to get something done. we are on it this morning. coming up we have breaking news out of barcelona and then a community in mourning, people in charlottesville gather together to honor state troopers who died while monitoring rally last week. details on their tribute coming up. the progress so far. back in a moment right here our lives. ♪

6:16 am
i hate looking at that photo. navy has removed two senior officers and senior enlisted sailer on that ship that almost sank off the coast of japan in june after struck by philippine container ship. several junior officers also disciplined. well, at&t takeover to time warner is moving closer, at&t lawyers are discussing merger conditions with the department of justice, significant milestone in deal closely watched for how the trump administration would view large mergers, during the campaign president trump was highly critical but he has not publicly talked about the recent transaction. time warner shares are up over 5% this year, maria. maria: interesting to see here. you wonder what kind of concession it is department of justice might be putting out there.
6:17 am
>> i'm so heartened to see that the department of justice is not cracking and does not move forward. a merger of two companies, that's just not true. it's good to see this happen, the trump administration should let it happen and looks like it's going to. maria: you're a free market guy. >> i'm not worried about monopoly, in this world and expanding options on the web, consumers can win as a result of. maria: my take away from this and i wonder who you think, dagen, this is going spur a lot of other deals. we saudis cofry go after scripps, a lot of deals as a result of these two getting bigger. dagen: it helps sure up president trump's business
6:18 am
credentials, if you will, and this is particularly important because donald trump did attack this deal as we have talked about before. at&t, a deal we would not approve in my opinions because it's concentration of power in the too few. maria: he said on the campaign trail. dagen: this is why it's important. he's going to walk a different talk. >> i hope they don't come in at a late stage and try to do reversal. that would be bad for markets. at this point it has to go through. if the rule of law is going to prevail, expectations are going to prevail -- >> keep your eye on the twitter. dagen: i was going to make a bad joke. maria: go for it. dagen: head of cnn maybe isn't the head of cnn -- maria: what concessions are they going to do? does jeff survive the deal ahead
6:19 am
of cnn? there's no military solution for curving north korea's missile program. >> in close collaboration with our allies, there are strong military consequences if dprk initiates hostilities. maria: rex tillerson's response next. obamacare premiums skyrocket in iowa, state only insurer is seeking a 57% rate increase, that's coming up. back in a moment ♪ [vo] progress is seizing the moment. your summer moment awaits you

6:23 am
could see crude oil down to $30 in the 30-dollar range in the next few years? >> in the next few years. it's fairly valued and inventories are dropping 40, 50 million-barrels with a lot of financial support for crude. so when you get into 2018 and the opec, 2019 and you have big projects coming on, throw in maybe a slowdown or recession, sure, you could see moments where it's in the 30's. maria: specially with all of the supply. >> absolutely. you know, the montra that it was lower for longer, maybe it's lower for longer. it's probably going to be cheap until we see the demise of hydrocarbon age. i don't think we will see $100 a barrel in my lifetime. >> opec is trying to battle this.
6:24 am
do they have anything left to fight this? is this inevitable and everything that they are doing is going to fall flat? >> there's not much. oil prices are helping them because global demand is rising but even that's a little bit considering circumstances. the only thing they have going on is privately. it's kind of refiners hope some other refiner has a hurricane so they can benefit from it. opec countries maybe hope that other -- one of the other countries libya, nigeria has some sort of internal disruptions that knock down production. so i think the price around $50, 45 to 55 is probably the reasonable range but we can have moments where we can go to 30's, we could have moment where we go 65 but not months, just moments. >> it looks like venezuela is slipping in anarchy right now. do you see prediction that oil productions falls off the cliff? >> i don't know that they'll fall off the cliff.
6:25 am
they'll have to be like libya if they fall in disarray. i'm not sure. they are disarray 2.1 right now. the problem with venezuela is we get a lot of heavy crude from there and a lot of world relies on heavy crude. think about it as high-protein crude that you need. [laughter] >> now, if something happens in venezuela where they get some sort of administration that's closer to democracy and closer to the west, they have the largest oil reserves in the world. maria: huge opportunity. >> just tremendous opportunity and no one out there is thinking that within the next five or ten years that they'll get the western companies back and exploit the reserves. dagen: how does that situation of venezuela affect gasoline prices in the u.s. with that venezuelan crude that might be refined in the united states? can these refineries that are engineered for that -- >> yeah. dagen: heavy sour, can they shift to crude that's produced here in the united states?
6:26 am
>> they can always run light and sweet. now, the problem with light and sweet, i defer to the ladies here today, the problem with light and sweet is that you make a lot of gasoline and a lot of light ends from it. you actually have more gasoline when you are running the light tight shell oil than you would if you're running venezuelan crude or heavy iraqi or off-shore crew. dagen: does that push gases even further? >> after the season. we are in the last two weeks of driving season right now, gas prices are going to go down after labor day. it's a question of whether they do it in slow motion or whether they do it in kind of a mail fashion. drops 5% after labor day and maybe more now because the amazon factor and people not going to malls and so forth. i don't think that's just -- i

6:32 am
by 50%. our top stories this half-hour rethinking the war on terror on the rate of the deadly attack on barcelona. killing 14 people, dozens of others. hours after that strike, attackers wearing fake bomb belts mow down several other people before being killed in a shootout, 60 miles away in the seaside resort town, still underway. donald trump will huddle with his national security team today at camp david, with a new strategy in afghanistan. jim mattis spoke about what to expect from this meeting and the role of the us today. >> we will move toward a decision as we are coming close
6:33 am
to a decision and i anticipated in the near future. maria: secretary mattis and rex tillerson back a plan to send additional troops to train afghan special forces. joining us this morning is foreign policy advisor paul botticelli, thanks for weighing in. what are you expecting from today's meeting? >> the president like a lot of presidents doesn't want to be involved in a war he thinks he can't win, he campaigned about it, leaving afghanistan will be devastating as it was for obama and i hope general mattis and others have an idea we may not ever see afghanistan in our lifetime be some sort of switzerland or even close to that. it is a place that is willing to fight our enemies as long as it takes and that means 10,000
6:34 am
troops. it means an outpost where we stay and make our enemies know that every single day you could die. that is a great way to stop people from attacking us. it doesn't look pretty but it is necessary. >> some of the trouble we had with this discussion, it is not clear why 10,000 more troops will make a bigger difference than 30,000 or 60,000 did, we are so far past decision points, the deck of small marginal returns, not sure there is that much upside. >> a couple reasons, one is because we have not been clear about what our policy is over 8 years under obama we knew we wanted to come home and be done with it but with a trump administration there's more than one side in that white house,
6:35 am
rex tillerson and mattis are interested in being there longer, maybe not talked about it the way john mccain did, they think there is a role for us. having clarity on whether the united states is desperately trying to go home or do what we have to do to secure ourselves will help answer that question whether it is 10, 15, 20. i go back to what i said earlier, our enemies know we will never turn around and go home and let you rebuild what you had before and attack us, you will always have to worry about staying alive. it is not pretty but it is better than having the talent and come back and host isis or whoever else wants to be there. >> we are talking troop numbers, a decade or more. is afghanistan a place we can expect to leave in a significant way in the next 10 or 15 years? is that a permanent presence for
6:36 am
the us in afghanistan? >> i don't see a way for us to leave. i see a way for us to reduce troops over time, years overtime from 10,000 to 20,000 level as our allies take more responsibility and the afghan government gets stronger and india and pakistan come to an arrangement to work on these things. i see a longer-term. the only other option besides going home is something eric prince is talking about, turning things over to contractors, i don't dismiss that out of time, the idea the united states telling its enemies we will never turn around is an important policy question that needs to be answered. >> these tensions have ramped up in the last few months. white house chief strategist steve bannon claimed, quote, there is no military solution to
6:37 am
curbing the country of nuclear ambitions, yesterday secretary tillerson rejected that notion. >> i don't have a comment on what mister bannon's remarks were. we have been clear what the policy and posture towards north korea is. we are prepared militarily, to respond if that is necessary. it is prudent they fully understand the consequences, they make a bad choice. >> i want to congratulate the secretary of state, i don't know what else he could have said, everyone knows the last thing the united states wants to do, it will result in millions of
6:38 am
south koreans dying, one military expert talking about within 15 minutes you could wipe out the north korean artillery and wouldn't lose that many, it is not true many people say that. these should not be discussed because north koreans have responded to a tougher administration. what the secretary said about coordinating our activities making clear we are standing firm, we will tolerate provocations of these threats and ultimately do what we have to do, in a regime for starved of information, they need to hear the same thing from the united states and allies, to make sure where we stand. dagen: the wall street journal has an editorial about this today saying, paraphrasing,
6:39 am
striking and troubling with bannon's willingness to undercut donald trump's policy of pressuring china by saying there is no military solution on north korea, bannon cold called this writer of this left-leaning publication and insisted after the fact that it was off the record which was balderdash. the wall street journal writes if mister taine -- mister trump retains mister bannon after such disdain for his own colleagues the president will risk other departures. if he doesn't get rid of bannon and reject such a request from chief of staff kelly, the chief of staff will wonder whether he can do his job. it is not about mister trump, it is are you going to allow one of your advisors -- >> peter king calls for bannon's reservation. dagen: this is also i dare you
6:40 am
to fire me tomorrow. >> the only argument is nobody in the president's inner circle is a political animal. kelly is not a politician, mc master is not, who is the political brain, who is karl rove, it is not anyone other than steve bannon. maybe kellyanne conway. the bench has been. >> who else in the administration is conservative? a lot of liberals, look at a lot of the cabinet who supported hillary clinton or president obama. what do you think? >> i agree with andrew, the presence of steve bannon was not just low politics, it assured the president's supporters but higher politics like the voice of karl rove or axelrod, someone forgot the president's overall views of his role and our role
6:41 am
in the world. having said that, that voice is usually quiet, not one that gets a lot of attention. when it comes to foreign policy the president is not surrounded by a bunch of goldman sachs liberal elites or anything, these are people who get the security of the united states and are very smart so hopefully it will be done behind closed doors. dagen: the wall street journal points out you could call gary cohen at goldman sachs democrat but he assembled a premarket policy king who wants to get tax reform done and cut taxes for all american businesses. he is walking a different talk and being labeled a goldman sachs democrat. >> thanks for weighing in. coming up, wisconsin advances as the state assembly approved a $3

6:56 am
pendulum swing? dagen: if you don't like the way he communicates with people you get to go and talk to him and say thank you -- what are you doing? you need -- you have his ear. like ceos, you lost the opportunity to weigh in. >> we were talking when the process first started we were saying what is this? what is it you are saying? i am looking at a 6-year-old and you have to ask what is bothering you? if you have something to say, say it. it is important to present the message when it is this volatile. >> you see colin kaepernick winding up with a team, jacksonville is in the middle of full-blown crisis. >> hasn't been signed yet. >> he is not good enough to be worth it. >> he has not had a good year.

7:03 am
>> it has to start with human intelligence. he will never fortify enough soft targets like infrastructure to present anyone from picking up a car at enterprise rent-a-car and driving it into people, you have to infiltrate the network and -- dagen: the dow having its worst decline in three months, had a 63 session streak without a move of 1% and yesterday down 1% so that streak is broken. maria: it worsened after the barcelona attack. dagen: gary cohen's potential resolution which was refuted. maria: terrorism striking spain. yesterday's attack in barcelona left 14 dead, more than 100 wounded when a white van plowed into pedestrians on the historic las ramblas promenade. 5 attackers wearing fake bomb belt mow down several people with a car before being shot down by police in the seaside resort town of cambrils. according to spanish authorities
7:04 am
three men have been arrested in connection with these attacks. the driver reportedly still at large, isis is claiming responsibility for the attack, donald trump responded tweeting this out, the united states condemns the terrorist attack in barcelona and will do whatever is necessary to help. be tough and strong, we love you. mike pence out to stop extremism. >> whoever is responsible should know the united states of america together with our allies will find and punish those responsible and driver evil of radical islamic terror from the face of the earth. maria: joining us is national security and foreign policy expert and secretary of transatlantic parliamentary group on counterterrorism wiley ferris --walid phasres. are these attacks becoming the new norm in the west? getting in a van and plowing
7:05 am
through clouds? >> they have already over the past two years, specifically over the last year we have seen these attacks repeatedly in france and great britain and sweden and spain. my projection is now that they have discovered this is a weapon we have a hard time opposing they will continue with it and not just in europe but in other liberal democracies, potentially here. the study of what to do tactically in these situations in my view, we need to look at the strategy how to defeat isis in the region and how to defeat its networks here at home. maria: is there anything about these attacks we are talking about this morning in spain that indicates there is a cell in spain? that this is more organized than past terrorist attacks? >> looking at what i call the operation, there were two
7:06 am
events, spanish authorities, more information during the day were days to come, this is a complex operation and it could be that the goals of the operation were much wider than just using the van and other means and other locations just to create shock in barcelona. it is an important economic center in spain, the goal was to have a strike and because of the international nature of activities in barcelona, economic activities. >> do you think spain has particular symbolic importance because of things like 700 years under muslim rule or catalonia's history of independence seeking and anarchism during the spanish civil war, any of those elements might have played into isis's decisionmaking? >> decisionmaking has to do with today's spain and barcelona from
7:07 am
social media but also on social media that is very close to the jihadists, isis and al qaeda, spain has had a lot of importance in ideological thinking, not operational thinking, they consider themselves part of the caliphate and the caliphate was defeated in spain so the indoctrination to their jihadi's those who are becoming terrorists, we need to striking spain in response to 700 years ago or more. dagen: something andrew brought up about there have been so many of these attacks in the last year starting with niece, andrew pointed out you can't harden every soft target. what can you do? in this instance in barcelona there were no concrete barricades essentially
7:08 am
protecting las ramblas. >> we had the discussion overnight, the past few attacks, you cannot harden everything. what jihadists have discovered is whatever is soft we will go, they will go to the next soft spot. what we need to do or two things, number one, inform, educate and train, the case of israel, never had that action. and to the jihadists on the offense of, waiting for where they are going to strike and establishing the defense lines around homes and neighborhoods. >> what is most frightening is not the attack in barcelona but the seaside town 60 miles south of their. if you look at the map, big cities we are talking about, a pattern, what is to stop isis
7:09 am
from going against these smaller targets where it is impossible to track where they go. putting up concrete barriers in larger cities you have smaller cities, if it is smaller it is still catastrophic, seems to me it does. >> over the past year, not just paris but a village or town in normandy and hundreds of small villages and locations across western europe or europe where the jihadists can target. it is not a harden everything but to make sure the population can respond to law enforcement. they know it is not just one cell in spain. how many multiple cells. dagen: the mainstream media
7:10 am
failed to call this what it was. wolf blitzer suggested the barcelona attack may be a charlottesville copycat. we need to get your reaction. >> there will be questions, whether what happened in barcelona was a copycat version in charlottesville, virginia even though they may be different political ambitions. they used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a large group of pedestrians. maria: what do you make of that comparison? >> the political ambitions, the jihadi ideology operating here, in iraq and libya, not even factoring in the analysis, and car was used here or there, we
7:11 am
make the link. and these are two things, both are violent but different. maria: they don't want to acknowledge islamic terrorism. dagen: 5 instances of terrorist radical islamic terrorist violence in europe since june of last year involving vehicles, these are major incidents starting with niece. this is an intelligent man using this in barcelona to advance the narrative that donald trump is a racist, let's these people at cnn push that narrative because they enjoy it. they can't face the threat. not only our freedom in the united states but the freedom in the entire world but one quote i found so appalling, the file and
7:12 am
-- in the new york times it was one quote from this young woman. you need violence in order to protect nonviolence. that is pure idiocy. that is the idiocy of the left and i want to point that out, can't call these radical islamic terrorists what they are by name. maria: the public is sick and tired of it, people want to move forward and it is constant mincing of words, attacking the white house. can we move forward and come together? it is outrageous. >> we get whiplash from going from donald trump has to call this attack in charlottesville what it is, radical white supremacy, to a day later no one mentioning radical islam. perspective that cannot be discussed. it is 150 °.
7:13 am
dagen: that is every holiday wrapped into one for the crazy left-wing tv media and that includes cnn and msnbc. maria: that is all they are wall-to-wall, another crew member has been identified after that black hawk crash in hawaii, the latest on the expanded search next, then gop headquarters vandalized with hate filled graffiti. the outrage next. ♪

can't get traction, people look at washington, this sort of thing and say what are we doing here? why are we having the conversations we are having with this corruption, this fraud happening. maria: the daily caller has done a good job on this story, breaking more information on it. a man who escaped death in the manchester bombing is in barcelona as terrorists strike again, terrifying eyewitness account next in the world mourns those lost in spain, we are looking at the tributes from around the world. ♪ potsch: you each drive a ford pickup, right?

maria: an unbelievable coincidence was a survivor of the manchester bombing also living through yesterday's barcelona attack. what a story.
7:23 am
>> a very lucky man. christopher pauli lives in manchester, he was at that ariana grande a concert and left moments before that explosive device detonated killing 22 people, injuring dozens more. yesterday he was on vacation in barcelona and narrowly missed the attack. he arrived just moments after the van plowed through the street killing all those people. he took the cell phone video immediately, he was just yards away when he stumbled onto the scene. terrifying eyewitness account and tweeted can't believe we are in the same place as another terrorist attack. hope everyone is okay in barcelona. what are the odds of that? incredible survival story. since the attack we are seeing tributes pouring in. last night the eiffel tower the

frequency of these attacks. >> said social media companies be responsible for flagging terrorism? this is a conversation we keep having in terms of technology, media companies, what should they be doing? >> after the attack in manchester teresa mason these companies are giving the terrorists a safe space on the internet. they are taking steps but it seems it is not enough. we don't know if these terrorists were using social media in spain but it seems they need to do more. maria: we had this debate since
7:25 am
san bernardino. what can you do without stepping up privacy? dagen: they can remove contents that is violence. twitter in the beginning, at the beginning of the rise of the islamic state, this goes back years and years, twitter -- these were violent videos, beheadings that you could find videos and photographs all over twitter. they are trying and stepping up but if you can police -- social media companies are legally required to police child pornography and report it to federal authorities and they made the case it is easy to do with radical islamic terrorists information. there should be a higher
7:26 am
standard. >> the problem is not policing violence content about radical content. what do they do about chat rooms the say we need a caliphate, that would be tremendous but not blow up a marketplace. that is where the homogeneity of silicon valley is going to hurt it. genuinely do we trust twitter etc. etc. to sensor radical political ideas. what is radical? >> even if facebook, twitter, changed policy, so many other platforms that can be used to disseminate this information, isn't it the ultimate game of wacko mall, how do you police that when it is easy to set up a network online and communicate? >> i think that is true. they -- anyone involved in that business, i don't want to say out west, going to stamp out all

good friday morning welcome back everybody. it is friday august 18. terrorism strikes europe again. the spanish police stop a second attack overnight. the scum after the devastation that we was yesterday in barcelona one of the crowded streets. they just didn't know which one to go. you can see all those bodies there. it was brutal. the very latest as authorities are searching for suspects this morning. it's wayne on global markets. there once again lower. it's down again about 17 points.
7:31 am
down 275 points yesterday. the ft 100 done about a%. in asia over night stocks closed mostly lower as you see there. the earnings of topped expectations. they are falling this morning after a big mess. the shares are down 19% during company down almost 5%. the details after rocks are thrown through windows. the money the automaker paid out over harassment allegations. what you need to know before you hit the road for the solar eclipse on monday.
7:32 am
right now isis has claimed responsibility for yesterday's terrorist attack. it left at least 14 people dead and more than 100 wounded. there are three separate incidents that are connected as part of this. there was an attack yesterday here. they ran into the promenade. killing at least 13 people and wounded more than a hundred. and then a late late last night early this morning. five people were killed. according to spanish police they were able to thwart the attack. they bring the total to this.
7:33 am
of about nine people. three people are in custody. the five that were killed there. police say it was the driver of that van yesterday. they had been looking for him since yesterday when he fled the scene and they don't know where his whereabouts are. >> it looks like we lost his audio there. as degen pointed out we are seen at the seeing the same thing repeat again and again in europe. it does not appear to be the case that we've been the idea how to deal with this. you made that point as well. i think people are watching this and saying is there anything that can happen here that will turn the tide.
7:34 am
clearly there is some link between the radical political ideals that are pervasive in the middle east and the segments of middle easter's in places like syria and iraq et cetera. in the violent terrorist attacks. the spanish newspaper reported that the cia have warned ursuline police two months ago. it could be the target of a deadly vehicle terrorist attack. the they use vehicles as weapons. and how would the cia have gotten that information there was no actionable intelligence
7:35 am
given in that warning. al qaeda is determined to attack the united states. and people after that. you missed the indicator and the signal. in reality okay you get the information thank you very much what do i do with that. i'm not sure it was as critical a piece of information. there are hundreds of places. you can't barricade everything. it just doesn't go very far in terms of helping police and authorities make a decision or take action. they are wrapping up a security in the wake of this attack. what should we be seen in terms of differences. one thing that they point out today is that europe for the
7:36 am
most part has been late to some of the counter terrorism initiatives that we practice here in the united states. there can have to move it to crackdown on funding. and work on the radicalization in countries where multiculturalism where the groups in the muslims are not integrated in the broader society. it's a multipart approach. there are a number of people roughly a dozen killed in a terror attack and she even said to me. out loud. what is your gonna do more to fight terrorism. >> some of these things are so tough for liberal societies.
7:37 am
there's no reason of foreign governments should be sponsoring religious institutions in your country. on the other hand western organizations of fund missionaries in places like russia. is there a difference though between a not-for-profit group said church here in the united states. in state government funding of operations here in the states. it gets so murky because governments like saudi arabia put money into the institution. it is still a government money but it's like the federal government gives money to planned parenthood. and then as if they kicked money into russia or somewhere.
7:38 am
they sold off sharply yesterday. as well as drum at the way has. investors worried about reports that the president's key economic advisor was going to resign. it was initially down on the speculation until the white house came out and said absolutely not he's here. they are posting the second biggest decline of the year. what he think investors want to hear at this point. it shows us of the actually do care about the agenda. they care deeply about that. they are very concerned that if he and other advisors leave this will happen though. they do talk about how they are going to advance the ball down the field. now is a time for the time for them to start doing that.
7:39 am
>> are they going to be able to do this. he his pushback from every corner. is he going to be able to get people together to get tax reform done. it's on the president to change his message and focus on the handful of things that are important to you. economic growth. if you just pick a few things. you can't avoid responding to events of the day. it needs to be measured. if you take a measured approach. you can kind of calm the waters so to speak for the next couple of months. and then put pressure on congress to move ahead. if you get his gives focus on that kind of handful things
7:40 am
that goes a long way. without me an argument going on to infrastructure spending. that something you could see a lot of people getting behind. the argument is that you need companies to re- pay treat that money is harbored overseas. that's part of it. that is where the agreement is. hopefully they will get that done. sadly not tax reform. they've about two weeks to get on track with that. the timeline goes away. that is a disaster for 2018 for them. gop headquarters were vandalized. the hate filled heat filled message that is shaking one community. we will show you that next.

7:50 am
key market drivers in the retail earnings. foot locker reporting a decline in same-store sales. it's down 20% right now. walmart was of course a drag on the market yesterday. thank you so much for joining us. what did you make of the market reaction yesterday. having a terrorist attack abroad invests this market selloff. anytime that large that happens. as can have that sort of impact. i think well have a little bit a correction. and if we do see and need more
7:51 am
correction is time for it. for the most part earning has been okay. foot locker is not great. for the most part it's been okay. they have the online retail growth. their margins were compressed little bit. was that surprising to you. what walmart is trying to do right now is take a lot of that revenue and put it back onto online. they've have it a lot longer than amazon has. now they're scrambling to get that online business up and running the problem started back during the recession. a lot of these stores started explaining very quickly because they were expecting this nice rebound. now because nobody really rebounded and spent almost ten years now.
7:52 am
the consumer has not rebounded as much as the industry thought they would. i've been talking at how lousy the online experience is with brick-and-mortar traditional trains. and i will point to macy's or even target. they never have been able to figure out. they've not been able to figure out how to link online and in store. he going the nike store there out of all of their shoes. and they said go online. i said can you just order me those and have them delivered tomorrow i can do that with any other retailer.
7:53 am
then they don't even had access to their own online store. the problem is the front end which is a sales is not really talking to the backend very well. it's all the tech people. there is no sort of marriage there. the people on the online part don't know that. that's part of the reason the best way to describe it as that cruise ships that are floating down the hudson right now. they're moving at this very slow pace. as part of the problem. sometimes it happens in change stores.
7:54 am
she will actually go on with that. sent to her from the online distribution out to new jersey. and she gets a sales credit for it. but she which is to make sure that she closes that. they don't have the inventory is so they can send it to you within three hours. making sure that they are close to everyone. they had had these large ones kind of a dotted all over the country. is these economy brick-and-mortar locations. amazon is moving in the other direction.
7:55 am
he said we just need a space bar inventory. is interesting there is a lot. there is a little bit of that. i don't think it is just a straight up brick-and-mortar store that amazon well head. it's probably what can happen with amazon as well. it is amazon need it if i could say that. it is a show room. it would be a small store was with some items and nothing is in stock. they can flip through.
7:56 am
as you know everything that we do a shopping wise is done on our phone or ipad. towns, cities and states are being hurt. many jobs being lost. when you make what you make of the president's statement there. basically what's going on is that he is right. there are a lot of jobs that are going to white because of what amazon is doing but that is the nature of retail. those are jobs that people don't necessarily want. they were talking about taxes. there was a theory that came out in december of 2016.
7:57 am
there's 1.4 trillion dollars and 50 american companies. walmart destroyed all of those jobs already. i have to say some of that. when amazon says it's getting into a certain business and what happens at other companies in that business. there is some truth. the personal information is exposed.

8:05 am
out a powerful statement in panama the most posture part that he said radical islamic terrorism i wondered if that is part of administration push to focus more on ideologic element instead of operational angle instead of a of moving away maybe from mcmaster approach to trump 1.0 approach. >> what does that -- how is that different? >> gosh, i think there is a lot of elements, i think, most importantly, it entails addressing the peaceful radical threat that i think is really the nub of the problem the violence only comes out of radical political ideology how you interconnect with groups like muslim brotherhood you mentioned earlier even no nominally nonviolent extremely challenging i could easily see the administration focusing on that next. dagen: is it tougher in europe, to uncover these sorts of terror plots andrew compared to the united states? because i was talking about multiculturalism in europe and
8:06 am
you have seen with the paris attacks, the attacks it happened in brussels, after that, even in london where because of multiculturalism you have large very insular closed off muslim communities in part breathe radicalized terrorists it makes it much more difficult for the authorities to kind of crack that if you will. >> you know that is such a great point it is harder in western europe, you know, part of what pushing back on peacefully ideology of radicalism entails your own nationalism that is the pushback against the multiculturals, includes intolerant ideas saying hey your ideas have to live within left and right limits, of our discourse of action right? and europe avid world war ii said hey, it is nationalism that got us into world catastrophe you a cull rally pushback seismic shift for

8:08 am
>> i was -- and 10,000. >> it will not i have to remember, that the last relevant experience we have of this is so farriest invasion afghanistan last time outside power tried to exert control over afghanistan the way that when soviet backed afghan government collapse not when soviet troops left it was when money ran out long run what is keeping afghan government afloat not u.s. troops in congress countries if congress is willing to give them money to survive. >> turn attention to north korea recent interview white house steve strategy steve boonon claimed this quote no military solution to curbing the country nuclear bishz yesterday secretary tillerson rejected that notion. >> i don't really have a comment on what mr. bannon's remarks were we have been quite clear as to what policy posture towards north korea is we are prepared, we are prepared militarily we are prepared with our allies.

8:10 am
table yesterday i suppose raises the question is this -- steve bannon on to something is it the case that really there are very few legitimate military options to deal with north korea, given the proximity to seoul in the region. >> barriers are very high i as many note steve bannon speaking off-the-cuff to reporter it wasn't official interview the administration, is going to focus, on the diplomatic strategy, to force north korea back to the negotiating table to build leverage over north korea through application of sanctions other means applying economic pressure, and the game here is to get as much leverage over pyongyang as possible so that when you do sit down at the table, you have the ability to force an endgame that is in u.s.' interests. >> between sanctions passed at u.n. and north korea very publicly kind of backing off its threat to guam, would you
8:11 am
say that trump's policy on north korea has been s you can so far. >> look go being going to take time for that policy to play out, certainly the challenge here, is that the application of economic sanctions, over the course of the last couple decades have not deferred pyongyang from ultimate goal obtaining icmb that would have the ability to strike the united states with nuclear tipped warhead so pyongyang has shown no indication that it is interested at all, at negotiating away one thing that it believers protects its regime from being overthrown from our side, from u.s. side and that have our allies, in the region, the military option is horrific something that the military chiefs want to only consider as an ultimate last resort not defensive measure when we look at long game year beginning to see, the strategy evolve towards a possibly for a deterrence containment strategy this is not something
8:12 am
white house is talking about, but it is something that policy experts and this can tanks in field are beginning to discuss revising there are no good options on the table as a military options really not one that any parties want to deploy. >> we will leave it there thanks for insights, thank you, coming up chicago voters exposed online security leaps that led to the leak sensitive information nearly two million americans then is merge mania back on a new signs that the at&t time warner deal could be nearing an important milestone, despite president trump's threat on the campaign to kilt. back in a minute. in 574 branches. all done by... yesterday. ♪ ♪ banks aren't just undergoing a face lift. they're undergoing a transformation. a data fueled, security driven shift in applications and customer experience. which is why comcast business delivers consistent network performance and speed
