arsenal would violate the inf ashley: edward lawrence, thanks treaty had they had been party to it which they were not. very much. let's get to deirdre bolton at why are they building up the new york stock exchange. it has been a struggle for all missiles? they're specifically meant to target not just u.s. carriers but u.s. bases there to assure the day but we cam back a little our allies and to assure that the united states has access to bit. reporter: no other day to say it those critical sea lanes in the the dow down fourth day in a region. so now with the united states has to do, is make up for that row. s&p 500 and nasdaq down fifth balance, that has been day in a row. developing because the united you have to go back to march to states was restrained by this cold war outdated treaty which see weeks like this especially for the s&p 500 and nasdaq. the russians were cheating on. focusing on the dows looking at ashley: critics are saying stocks that sold the most, in you're unleashing a massive fact they accounted for half the global arms race again that we saw prior to this 1987 treaty decline on that average. see on the screens, apple, with the then soviet union? goldman sachs, ibm. we've been talking about the >> i would just note that all of trade tensions between the u.s., nato, the nato alliance is china, apple very much affected supporting the trump by that. huge part of this revenue coming administration. so this was not something that the united states did from china. of course the manufacturing question, a very open-ended one unilaterally. and the russians tried to use as president trump spoke this as a cudgel. yesterday about this additional they tried to cheat on the 10% tariff on $300 billion worth margins, continue to cheat of goods. if you look at some of the increasingly, tried to get nato to oppose the united states stocks that limited the overall losses on the dow, we can show withdrawing from the inf treaty you pretty defensive names. to splinter the alliance t
didn't work. mcdonald's is the one really stands out. boeing is a bit particular. trump diplomats worked overtime to make choanate toe was with this. the arms race has been going on. then travelers. overall ashley, the only two just the united states hasn't groups on the s&p five hundred been participating. ashley: does that put europe at that held on in any gains, not a disadvantage? ones with international does russia have a line of exposure, real estate and attack with a large part of the utilities. back to you. jackie: thank you very much. continent of europe? >> this is part of what the oil rebounding after the russians are doing. it puts our allies at great steepest selloff in four 1/2 years. risk. jeff flock has the details for the best thing we can have for us. our allies is a stronger nato. reporter: a little bit of a as much as people have been rebound, jackie. 55.66 at the close. criticizing the trump administration approach, nato, we lost additional in the after-hours on perhaps president specifically president trump being harsh on some of our nato trump's further negative comments that we'll hear moments allies trying to get them to contribute more on their own away. the only good thing i guess to collective defense it resulted in good fruit where they are becoming stronger, they are becoming a better, closer say, baker hughes rig count down alliance. this is a good example of that. eight rigs from the last report. ashley: last question, rebecca. lower gasoline prices, how likely would china agree to tremendous stability of late. take a look at numbers. a nuclear pact? >> countries only agree to arms i call gaits stability. control if they are at a disadvantage. 2.75 a gallon regular. because china is at military
superior advantage to the united 2.73 last month. states they are not going to that is good news, pat dehaan of participate. ashley: that is sobering gas buddy told stuart varney on comment. rebecca, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. fox business, he thinks gas jackie: what seems like ordinary could be down 50 cents a gallon task across the globe. by december. a early merry christmas perhaps. women in saudi arabia in the restrictive nation celebrating a jackie, that is the latest. major win. we have the details. jackie: jeff, that would be ♪ remarkable. terrific. ashley: michelle gerard, lanhee doesn't love you back, chen, hoover institution stay smooth and fight heartburn fast research fellow, courtney brown here in the studio, "axios" with tums smoothies. markets reporter. ♪ tum tum-tum tum tums michelle, let me begin with you. we have trade uncertainty on back and forth with china. every day there is a bad but allstate helps you. with drivewise. headline. the market takes a hit. feedback that helps you drive safer. we have historic low interest and that can lower your cost rates. now we don't have such a dovish now that you know the truth... fed. are you in good hands? there seems to be a lot of clouds hanging around the markets right? >> there are a lot of clouds. one thing i would say, now the fed maybe this week, they threw some caution on the amount of additional stimulus that they
might you know take, they were very clear that they will do what is necessary to keep the expansion going, to offset downside economic risks. these tariffs would present a downside economic risk. there is uncertainty, something that weighs on economy and a cockroach can survive submergede guy. underwater for 30 minutes. markets, i think we can feel wow. confident, if indeed the economy yeah, wow. is losing steam as a result of this uncertainty, we will see more action from the federal reserve. ashley: yeah it is interesting, michelle, anytime we get decent data, there is tendency for the market to go down for fear the fed will use that data as an not getting in today. excuse not to cut. not on my watch. but listen, we are in the dog pests never stop trying to get in. days of summer. we never stop working to keep them out. the volume is low. volatility is high. terminix. defenders of home. how much should we read into these market moves? >> well you know, again, the market is going to be very volatile, reacting to every piece of information. as you said illiquid markets
moves get magnified. you need to step back to keep the bigger picture, understand that ultimately policymakers sort of have your back. ashley: right. >> that doesn't mean we're out of the woods but to some extent, you are going to get whipsawed. a headline about tariffs, just as quick the president could announce some deal has been reached. so there is going to be a lot of volatility here. ashley: lanhee, look, you look around the world, i still think we're the only game in town. things are slowing down. we're still expanding just at a slower rate for u.s. economy. we're still the best game in town, right? >> that's right. you look around the world, there is a ton of geopolitical headwinds. china is subject of some cvs. you look how much the chinese economy has slowed. there will be continuing pressure because of the chinese economy on president xi. so that will affect the u.s.-china discussion as well but looking around you do see a lot of storm clouds in other countries. the u.s. is still a relatively
better place to be but i do think that some of that stability, some of the instability we're seeing now could certainly put a damper on that going forward. ashley: yeah, look, courtney, michelle mentioned the expression whipsawed, that is almost on a daily basis to get back to these china headlines if the president doesn't sound optimistic, boom, down goes the market. until we get something done with china is the normal for the markets right now? >> i don't mean to play down the last few days selloff by any means, imagine what the reaction would have been had the fed not come out and prioritized trade watching trade very closely. and, you know, it is not lost that president trump set a deadline for september 1st. guess what is coming two weeks later? the fed decision. that is important to keep in mind as well. ashley: we'll have to leave it right there. thank you very much, panel. we'll back. jackie: we continue wait for the president's comments. we'll have those momentarily.
unemployment rate holding steady 3.7%. michelle, your thoughts? ashley: new demonstrations in hong kong. the report wasn't bad. thousandthousands of civil servants protesting the government in a rare display of. average gains are not what they were last year. i think that is what the market is focusing on? they are supposed to be >> that is the thing i guess i was focused on. politically neutral. don't get me wrong, the legislators came out nine weeks ago opposing extraditions to year-to-date trend is almost exactly in line with the job china. gains that we saw and that is, demands include the resignation of chief executive carrie lamb. jackie: some of those pictures 160,000 jobs, new jobs a month look relatively calm. at this stage of the cycle is ashley: they do. jackie: but we've seen earlier this week it was really, really really impressive. it is certainly sufficient to quite dicey there. ashley: it has been, i want to keep downward pressure on the say there has been speculation unemployment rate. it is as you said, kind of a china may or considering step down from what we had been enforcing marsha law in seeing. of course all of this happened before renewed uncertainty -- jackie: michelle, i'm really story. we have breaking news. hong kong sunday. president trump speaking to that is major pecklation. reporters on the south lawn you don't know how it will work moments ago. let's listen to this. out, it could lead to greater he is walking out there. you can see, he made a number of confrontation. a lot of eyes on hong kong, how comments, ashley, that we sort of got the headlines from. these demonstrations develop and ashley: what i love, as he heads how they are dealt with
essentially by beijing. to the helicopter, president jackie: all in the context of many times cannot resist to talk negotiations of trade with our president. to reporters there. the united states will be it is amazing how much watching very closely to see as information he gives out. well. a lot at stake here certainly. he will take questions on any meantime saudi arabia moving subject. jackie: absolutely. as you said, if the chopper is a by the closer to the 21st raging in the background, even century. the desert kingdom granting if audio is not good. right of women to travel ashley: he will shout. independently to hold on to he off to bedminster for a their passports. until now they needed permission little r&r over the weekend. from a male guardian to leave before he left. the country. this is what he had to say. fox news's ellison barber in reporter: [inaudible]. jerusalem with the details for us. >> which process are you talking reporter: in saudi arabia adult women are allowed to get about? reporter: confirmmation process? passports, and travel without permission of a man. >> because i felt that a series of royal decrease were congressman ratcliff was being published friday, changing amendments to say every treated very unfarely. i was reading the press. applicant holding saudi arabian i think i am a student of the nationality which be granted a press and i could see that the passport. any person over the age of 21 press was treating him i thought does not need permission to very unfairly. travel. other amendments allow women to he is on ought standing man, i register childbirth, marriage or asked him do you want to go through this for two or three divorce, to be issued official months or would you want want to family documents, to be eligible as a guardian to children who are minors.

a week. i have that as an option always. but that is what we're not looking to do. [reporters shouting questions] reporter: how do you avoid a nuclear arms race now that you decided it withdraw -- >> we've been speaking to russia about that a pact for nuclear, so they get rid of some, we get rid of some. we probably have to put china there, but right now we're number one, russia is number two, china is number three, but china is quite a bit down in terms of nuclear. china is much lower. we would certainly want to include china at some point. but i would think that the relationship is good. we're trying to have a good relationship. it is very hard, in light of the phony witch-hunt which is now dead but i will say this, with russia, if we could get a pact where they reduce and we reduce nuclear, that would be a great thing for the world. i do believe, i do believe that
will happen. we have discussed it. i have also discussed it with china. i have discussed it with president putin. i have also discussed it with china. i will tell you china was very, very excited about talking about it and so is russia. i think we will have a deal at some point. the particular pact you're talking about that expired as of today, they weren't living up to their commitments. i said if they're not going to live up to their commitment, then we have to, we always have to be in the lead. you know i have redone our nuclear. we have new nuclear coming. i hate to tell that to people. i hate to say it. because it is devastating but we've always got to be in the lead. hopefully, and hope to god you never have to use it. reporter: [inaudible] >> say it? reporter: [inaudible]. >> we have new everything. we have the finest military in the world. we make the finest equipment in
the world. by far, whether it is fighters, whether it's missiles, whether it's the ships. whether it's submarines. nobody to compete with us. but if we could hold off spending by getting a pact with russia and china would be very good for, that would be very good for all three countries. reporter: [inaudible] >> you're talking about the trade with the, on beef? reporter: [inaudible]. >> the eu is very tough to deal with. there. they are very difficult. they had barriers on beef. we broke that barrier today. i appreciate it. it's a group of countries, as you know. we love those countries but we're dealing with them, they're very, very difficult but we did a very big deal today, beef. we'll be selling them a big percentage of their beef. that is great for our ranchers
and farmers. so we were happy to do it. reporter: auto tariffs off the table? >> auto tariffs are never off the table. if they would not treat us fairly, which they're not, i mean, you know, right now, look, the eu has tremendous barriers to us but we just broke the first barrier and maybe we broke it because of the fact that if i don't get what we want, i will put auto tariffs because it is all about the automobile, it is all about the tariffs. if i don't get what i want, i will have no choice but maybe to do that but so far they have been very good. i want to thank mexico, the numbers are way, way down, apprehensions. the numbers are way down. mexico, they have about 21,000, actually now maybe have more than that on our border. they have another 6,000 on their northern border, okay? view it that way, their northern
border, near guatemala. i will tell you mexico is doing a great job. reporter: [inaudible]. >> well i would love to see, before we start talking about secretary i i tell you i would love to see the democrats sit down, work out loopholes in 20 minutes that is what it would take and work out asylum. we're moving along with an asylum fix and asylum bill. lindsey graham is heading it up very capably. we'll see what happens. reporter: [inaudible] >> i will always help our farmers. our farmers were targeted by china. and our farmers frankly, these are great patriots. i will always help our farmers. there will be a time when the biggest beneficiary of what i'm doing with respect to china and trade generally, you're seeing it with the eu. they couldn't do the cattle thing at all, beef, they
couldn't do it at all. now all of sudden this came out of nowhere. our farmers will ultimately be the biggest beneficiaries. they know that but our farmers are great patriots. reporter: [inaudible]. >> no. what happens is china devalues their currency and china also es pouring money out. that will pay for the tariffs. it is a total misnomer. i don't say that with all countries but with china, they're very highly sophisticated but so are we. more than anybody would understand. all you have to do is ask china. all you have to do is ask china. but let me just explain, so china is devaluing their currency, and they're also pouring money in. their currency is going to hell but they're also pouring money in. that will totally pay for the tariffs. the tariffs are not being paid for by our people.
it is being paid for by china. because of devaluation, and because they're pumping money in thank you, everybody. of. [reporters shouting questions is. >> reporter: they say -- [inaudible] >> you interviewed the wrong farmer. number one, number two, any amount china sucks out we're making up out of billions of dollars we're taking in. remember this, our country is take being in billions and billions of dollars from china. we never took in 10 cents from china. and out of that many billions of dollars, we're taking a part of it, we're giving it to the farmers because they have been targeted by china. farmers, they come out totally whole. you interviewed the wrong farmer. [reporters shouting questions] ashley: you interviewed the wrong farmer. there you have it from the
president speaking with the media, short time ago from the south lawn before he heads back to his golf resort in new jersey. covers a wide range of topics, which he usually does, everything from afghanistan, russia, mexico, finding a new head of the national intelligence agency. we want to focus on financial issues here on the business network. we want to talk about trade. michelle gerard, lanhee chen and courtney brown, gamely sticking with us today. i really appreciate that. courtney, let me come back to you. talk about tariffs. firstly with china and the on going trade dispute with them. he talked about the eu, we got a beef deal done but i'm still wanting to figure out this auto tariff issue. europe needs to play at the sail rules we need to play with. do tariffs work. are we taking the right tact? >> economists and are insure
what winning would look like? how do we win a trade war? is winning do enough to undo economic damage that may occur as we're in the trade war. this additional threat of 10% on 300 some odd bill dollars worth of imports, we get from china this is the first time the consumer is really, really going to be target. so far the trump administration stayed away from items on the shelf from walmart and the like. when you think about the bedrock of this economic expansion has been, it has been the consumer. we'll see china does not pay for the tariffs. u.s. companies pay for the tariffs. ashley: right. >> they will pass those on to consumers for sure. ashley: lanhee, argument being, short term pain, long-term gain. the president already said we had economic damage done by china for some years, for decades now. this is the only way to get them to the table to actually make the reforms that we would like them to make. what do you say? >> i think if that theory ends
up being true, if the chinese do indeed end up making changes, for example, on forced technology transfer, i.p. theft, the industrial policy elements we really find objectionable probably some of this pain will have been worth it. the question though, is that the deal we're headed toward? are we headed for a long-term deal or a short-term deal that addresses the current account he have deaf fit and couple issues opt margin? if this is the case that we're leading to a long-term deal which i'm still acceptable about, that would be one thing. all we're dealing with is dollars an cents on the margins. we're not getting to fundamental reform. ashley: michelle, the president touched on this, no one has been doing anything in the past. they have not been able to get china to reform, stop forced transfer of intelligence, of knowledge. we've come to this point. he is trying to finally break that pattern. is this right way? >> yes. i think the president looks at
the, first of all the relative positions economically between the u.s. and china. obviously china is on much weaker footing, if you will, from an economic standpoint than the u.s. so the timing of taking china on now is certainly there. and i think it is exactly as you said, the u.s. is beginning to think about, talk about themselves, the long game, if you will. you listen to some of the advisors to the president who say, you know, this is not about what the stock market is going to do over the next months, even six months or more. this is about taking on china now so that 10, 20, 50 years from now, we don't find ourselves having to be much more aggressive in terms of keeping china check. and so i think that, you know, this is what has come together. the time is now. because of this president. because of the relative strength
of the economies in the two countries, to actually, to take this fight on. and that is what the president is doing. ashley: courtney, very quickly i want to ask you another question i herd what you said earlier, nothing has worked at all when it comes to china, is this worth the chance to make the reforms they claim they never make but never do? >> it would be worth it, traders, analysts, i talk to, we come out with a deal that shows some reforms, not just a deal in name only, yes, perhaps the short-term pain that we've endured would be worth it. ashley: we'll have to leave it there. thank you, panel. courtney, michelle, lanhee, thank you for sticking around half an hour to join us today. thank you all. jackie: for more, let's bring in ford o'connell, pacific o'conne.
he said we don't want an even deal with china. we want the terms to be even better for the united states. this is where sort of politics and business really sort of have a crossroads because the president is using this political posturing to get an end goal that will have an impact on markets and the economy overall. do you think he is doing a good job in these back and forth negotiations? >> he is absolutely trying his best. understand we haven't done anything about china in the last 30 years. one great thing he could do, go to the wto to change china to most developed nation status. right now they're shirking responsibility at the wto as well. absolutely this is the right time to do it. essentially china is in the worst economic situation since the 1990s. essentially also there is a lot of companies that are leaving china, like apple, dell, they're relocating in southeast asia. as long as that continues to
happen, it will drive china to the table. the question whether or not which get terms that help american workers. ashley: kristin, a lot of folks will say this is a tax on the consumer as courtney was saying before. u.s. companies pay it, it will get passed on but there is still a month until the president will impose the tariffs. the deadline is september 1st. so do you think over the course of the next 30 or so days progress can be made and we don't see it happen? >> hopefully progress can be made. obviously there will be someut k folks need to work together. as a democrat i'm glad the president is actually taking on china. they have been shirking their global responsibilities for far too long. i do think though on the political side of things the tariffs in general that have been harmful to farmers, i think that could have some political repercussions for the president in 2020. jackie: okay. yeah. we'll be watching it very
closely. i want to get a final word from you, ford, because you mentioned the fact that the president you know, he is in a tough spot here, right? he is dealing not only with china but he, you know, renegotiating the nafta deal, waiting for ratification of that. he also made comments today about the e.u. it is like he is trying to straighten out a lot of wrongs that came over long period of time, that kind of fell in his lap. >> he is trying to deliver on his promises. no one should be shocked. this is exactly what he said he would do when he took office. frankly will take a long time to do it. this is the problem the democrats are not getting about china. that is president xi is president for life. the chinese like to tell you what you want to hear, they hope you lose focus and won't stay on for the long fight. what president trump has done, say, come hell or high water. the problem we sold our soul for cheap consumer goods at the price of the american consumer. that is a something that the
democrats don't point out. jackie: ford, kristin, thank you. >> thank you. ashley: the white house officially withdrawing from a nuclear treaty with russia. so the question is what happens now? we're live from the pentagon with details. >> puerto rico's governor expected to step down less than 30 minutes from now. as the house approves his successor's nomination. breaking details are coming up. this was me six years ago... and this is me now! i got liberty mutual.
