dow is up 191, s&pes is up 23 and a quarter, nasdaq is up 81 and-a-half. deirdre: white house trade advisor peter navarro telling lou dobbs that yesterday's selloff was a massive overreaction. >> i think what happens in these kind of things is you get the day traders moving, you get a little trend trading and before you know it, there's a lot of volatility and good people lost some money today because they got shaken out of the market. but the underlying fundamentals are absolutely solid as a rock. cheryl: for more on this let's go to edward lawrence, he's in washington. edward, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, cheryl and deirdre. a gut punch for farmers in the united states. the chinese commerce ministry spokesperson confirming that china will not buy u.s. agriculture. that spokesperson also saying that a plan to roll back tariffs of agriculture being imported into china may not happen going forward because of everything that's happened here.

president trump now saying that china is a currency manipulator. in fact, the treasury department announced that it is a currency manipulator, adding it to the list. steven mnuchin will work with the international monetary fund to eliminate that advantage. devaluing currency would minimize the impact of the 10% tariffs the president plans to add on september 1s 1. all of this has trade associations worried. the president or head of the american apparel and footwear association says they feel pinched in the middle. >> we can't deal with this. we have no way to deal with this. and we honestly feel like we're pawns in an international chess game and we're going to get hurt and it's going to hurt the economy and now it's showing up in the market. so we hope that the president will see the light of day and stay away from the consumer because he's headed in our direction. >> reporter: at the last fac
5:06 am
face-to-face trade talks chinese sources tell us the chinese delegation told the u.s. side they would not add back any of the concessions the u.s. said they made. sources say the chinese told the u.s. they would not change their laws based on a trade deal. now there's signs the chinese are pulling back. the president said the chinese were supposed to buy u.s. agriculture. now it appears that ag buy will not happen. deirdre: president trump claiming that china's manipulation of currency proves that its economy is taking a hit from u.s. tariffs. that is very much president trump's view. obviously investors in the equity market yesterday had a different take. cheryl: breaking overnight, china's government is standing behind hong kong's chief executive carrie lamb, calling its support firm and steadfast. this is after two months of some very violent protests that has
5:07 am
disrupted hong kong and the way it operates. widespread strikes hit yesterday, bringing the city to a standstill. hundreds of flights have been canceled at hong kong's airport. you're looking at the violence on your screen. police fired tear gas at five different locations at the city. protesters continue to challenge beijing. they say they are prepared to die for the pro-democracy movement. deirdre: president trump slapping new sanctions on the venezuelan government, freezing all government assets. president trump issuing an executive order immediately banning american companies and individuals from doing business with the government of nicolas maduro and its supporters. john bolton warned china and russia not to double down in support of maduro, saying that venezuela may not repay its debt to them after maduro falls. the u.s. recognized opposition leader as venezuelan's

5:09 am
>> reporter: some democrats say the president's words don't go far in your. bernie sanders tweeting this. today mr. trump made a statement disavowing hatred and white supremacy. i say talk is cheap. tell mcconnell to pass gun safety legislation. the american people want it. the majority leader issued this statement, saying senate republicans are prepared to do our part. he added, partisan thee a theatd campaign trail rhetoric will take us further away are from the results the american people deserve. former president obama is also weighing in, not mentioning president trump by name but saying this in a statement. we should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred. down in texas, el paso's mayor
5:10 am
who has not always seen eye to eye with president trump had this to say. >> he's coming out here on wednesday. i'll ask president trump to support our efforts with any and all resource that's are available. our recovery is no small task. >> reporter: as for renewed calls on gun control, cheryl and deirdre, the house passed a new background check bill back in february but it stalled in the senate. the real question is, can divided washington get anything done on this issue? that is really only time will tell. cheryl: griff jenkins live in wash son. griff, thank you so much. today ohio governor mike dewine is expected to unveil new gun and mental health measures after a gunman opened fire of the course on that packed street that killed nine people. dewine packed senate leaders on passing red flag laws which would remove guns from a person found to be dangerous. president trump is also supporting those laws. deirdre: officials say the shooter fired off at least 41

cheryl: washington's trade war with beijing has hit a fever pitch. the treasury department labeled china a currency manipulator as the country's central bank let the yuan depreciate. china's commerce ministry announced they stopped buying american farm products. all of this is retaliation gone
5:17 am
wild. let's bring in riley walters. riley, this really has blown up the stock market. this trade war seems to be never-ending. now the concern is that there's not going to be a deal. there's going to be no deal. not even a bad deal. just no deal with the chinese. what do you say? >> well, the tariffs from last week, the announcement yesterday that china's a currency manipulator, these things don't bode well for the trade talks. it really brings in the question of whether we can get a deal at all before the next presidential election. you know, i'm going to go out, i'm going to say i'm an optimistic. i think we can still get a deal done. it makes talks that much harder. i think the president wants a deal. i think china wants to return to some sort of stability in u.s.-china economic relations. they are going to try to want a a deal too. all these issues make it that much harder to get there. cheryl: it's interesting because the president keeps saying, and this is a loaded
5:18 am
question, i'm sorry, but the president keeps saying that tariffs don't hurt the u.s. and peter navarro says tariffs don't hurt the u.s. there's evidence out there that says we are starting to see the effects on the u.s. economy of these tariffs. and the federal reserve already cut rates. we know they're thinking about it. this seems to be kind of lost at the white house right now. is there some strategy that we're not thinking about here, is there a secret strategy that's in play? >> i don't know if there's this grand strategy out there. folks like navarro, they really put more of an emphasis on u.s. exports. they don't care about the consumers as much as they do for example manufacturing exports. if you look at the numbers, even if china is devaluing its currency, we are still paying $5 billion a month to the u.s. treasury for buying imports. i mean, they are collecting taxes from americans and the data's clear about that. cheryl: i do want to read an
5:19 am
american farm bureau federation statement. i think this hits home for so many americans that are watching throughout the country right now. this is what they say. china's announcement that it will not buy any ag products from the united states is a body blow to thousands of farmers and ranches who are already struggling to get by. a prolonged trade war hurts the american farmer, riley. >> yeah, i mean, it's just one blow after another. a certainity i think for u.s. farmers is almost dead and so trying to find alternative markets that are profitable is difficult and they just can't continue to rely on u.s. bailout anymore. cheryl: i don't think it's going to happen. you've got air china cancelling flights and maybe september talks between the two countries but i think it's all really up in the air. riley, thanks so much for this. we appreciate it. >> thank you. deirdre: when we come back, markets are rebounding the this morning after yesterday's big losses. look at that green on your
5:20 am
screen, that's a big change from what we saw 24 hours ago. a bipartisan roadblock, more details on this, california facing legal trouble after trying to block president trump from the ballot in that state. and if you would give up money for your time, you are not alone, the incredible lengths people will go to for more vacation when "fbn: a.m." returns. ♪ you don't got to go to work, work, work, work, work. ♪ but you want to go to work, work, work, work. ♪ you don't want to go to work, work, work, work

cheryl: what would you do for unlimited time off? would you take a pay cut. a third of workers say they would do just that. a new study says the average amount people are willing to give up, one quarter of their
5:24 am
salary. 63% of those people by the way are millennials. experts warn this may not be worth it. just because you have the time off, doesn't mean you're actually able to take it. deirdre: stocks sold off yesterday, the worst day of the year. two superstar market guests with us now, michael lee, wealth portfolio management, jimmy lee, good morning to you both. michael, given the futures rebounding now, was yesterday's selling overdone or is it justified? >> i think it was overdone. whenever you have large moves in either direction, the underpinnings of the market, there's a lot of computer based algorithms that pick markets in either direction. today expect it to go higher. we saw it go substantially lower yesterday. deirdre: how much of the green on the screen is due to the pboc governor saying china will not
5:25 am
use the yuan as a tool to deal with trade disputes or do you dismiss that as pr? >> i think it's all pr. i think investors are realizing the selloff yesterday was possibly a great buying opportunity for long-term investors. that's what i believe. i think that's what's really causing a rebound. i do believe that we can get a lot more volatility as the negotiations are playing out in the public and so be mindful of that. for long-term investors it's a great opportunity to cash to work. deirdre: where would you put the cash to work. >> it's incredibly important to be diversified. i think a lot of portfolios are under-balanced. growth stocks have done better than value stocks over the last few years. investors should make sure they have a balanced portfolio. dividends are okay, especially if you're wait and see in a sideways market. deirdre: michael lee, what
5:26 am
would you be buying right now. >> you can go along the s&p 500, we had a huge move to the downside yesterday. we're well off the highs. if you go back 18 months or so, since these trade disputes started, every one of these selloffs based on negative trade news has been a fantastic buying opportunity. i think we make new highs this year. deirdre: all right, how high? >> hopefully much higher. [ laughter ] but, look, you can get -- we're at 16 times earnings at 3,000. maybe we get up to 20 times earnings if the 10 year stays below 2%. so that puts us up to like the 32, 3300 mark. deirdre: all right. here's hoping. 401-ks, people will be pretty happy. jimmy, i heard you say more volatility is on the way. let's just say for argument's sake there's no continue i've testify trade -- definitive trade deal. does it matter? >> i think it does matter, timing's very important. the election year is coming up next year and the chinese know
5:27 am
that and so i think investors were hoping for a trade deal before the end of the year. i'm still hopeful we can get one. what's really important is that investors need to focus on underlying economy here in the u.s. we're still very strong. the data suggests that the economy's still growing and it is robust. companies are coming out with good earnings. this puts more pressure on the fed to lower rates and so that's bullish for stock investors and so i think people need to focus on the long-term and try not to focus too much on the news day-to-day. deirdre: thank you both. cheryl: let's take a look, we're just talking about the action on wall street this morning. we have a rebound in your futures market. asia had a really rough night but europe is coming back and now we are too. dow is up 226, s&p up 26 and a quarter, nasdaq up 92 and a quarter. we're going to talk more about that and we've got this, the trump economy is booming but is it enough to keep him on top in

deirdre: here's what's going on in the markets right now. u.s. stock market futures are heading higher. i'm going to turn here so i can read on your screen. the dow indicating to open up 220 points, s&p 500, 26, the nasdaq, 90. in asia, stocks falling. you're going to see red, so following the pattern on monday. in europe, stocks are turning around right now. we have to note, you'll see where you have the ftse, the cac and dax all heading higher. china's central bank setting the yuan's official reference point at a stronger level than what we saw yesterday. cheryl: so far, the president's
5:32 am
got a lot to celebrate when it comes to the trump economy. the u.s. has seen job growth for 106 consecutive months. we have unemployment, 4% or less for the last 17 months. consumer sentiment on one of the best streaks since the '90s. we've had the biggest bull market run ever. is president trump though going to be able to overcome this trade war with china, which has no signs of easing, and of course tensions with north korea, all of this goes into the 2020 election. let's bring in washington examiner commentary writer tiana lowe. good morning. >> good morning. cheryl: people have cherem memories, he's -- have short-term memories. these could have long-lasting effects, the trade war with china, the issues with north korea, adding iran to all of this. is this going to a affect trump do you think next year? >> trumps has two tickets to re-election. one, this economy right now and, two, calming down on twitter. who knows if he can achieve the
5:33 am
second one. the first one can be achieved if we get a deal with china. if this persists and if we keep on seeing these selloffs and if we keep on seeing yields plummeting, then maybe not. because right now we are sort of -- if you look at every metric, we are overdue for a recession. yet, we still have this great gdp growth and we're able to maintain both low unemployment and low inflation and most pivotally, for the average american this is the first time in years they're seeing wages go up. cheryl: to add to your point, and this would be good for the president, is consumer sent sentiment. we've seen that trend higher during his presidency. if the consumer is saying i feel pretty good, i've got a raise, i've gotten a raise, my 401-k is doing better, then he's got that. the other side of this is what's interesting is that this gives the democrats nothing to run on. i mean, they can't hit him on the economy. they've got to come up with something else or it is going to be a win for trump in 2020. >> certainly.
5:34 am
we saw this with the quarter two gdp report that it is consumers who are feeling this economy right now. and that's good because it means high cash flows. and when you have a democrat saying it's not going to be a return to some sort of obama era politics where we're going to nationalize one fifth of the economy with medicare for all or we want green new deal packages and we want to bring up the corporate tax rate, i think the average voter may ignore the tweets and say i like this economy. cheryl: we've seen polling show that the president -- people approve of his policies, voters do, but it's the rhetoric that a lot of people are finding a hard time to deal with. before i let you go, the issue of gun control has come up again. we say we're not going to politicize it but we do after two mass shootings over the weekend. nancy pelosi not willing to come back to washington. last week in the he di the debae
5:35 am
democrats rarely spoke about it. where are they on this and why aren't they willing to come back and talk about actual gun reform. >> the issue is that the sensible options that could reasonably pass through congress without violating the constitution, like gun violence restraining orders, like red flag law as the president pointed out earlier, those are not the ones that are politically expedient, they don't advance an agenda. politicians are more interested in burying the hatchet in their opponents' backs than saving the lives of americans. cheryl: thank you for your perspective this morning. deirdre: taxpayers are going after california for targeting the president's taxes. a bipartisan group of voters is suing the state over what they call an un unconstitutional attt to keep president trump off the state ballot. cheryl: todd piro has more on what could turn into a massive legal battle. >> reporter: the four plaintiffs, two republicans, one
5:36 am
democrat and one independent, joining in a federal suit, blasting the new law as an attempt to add additional qualifications for the presidency. under the law, candidates must disclose five years of federal income tax returns in order to be listed on the state's primary ballot, in an effort to give voters details about a candidate's finances. here's the governor s''s attempo justify the law. >> ever since president nixon released his returns, it's become the norm in this country that presidents of all political stripes release tax returns. >> reporter: those suing say the california laws changes the requirement to run for president, violating the first and 14t 14th amendments in the process. they add that california politicians in the zeal to attack president trump passed a law that unconstitutionally
5:37 am
victimizes california voters. it's an obvious legal issue that the state can't amend the u.s. contusion. the courts can't stop this abusive law fast enough. it's important to note that the last california governor, jerry brown, vetoed a previous version of the same law saying it creates a slippery slope and asking what other documents could be demanded depending upon the political party in power, such as health records. back to you sh. cheryl: you know the saying about good intentions? mcdonald's in the u.k. and ireland switched to paper straw as part of a global effort by the company to help help protect the environment. despite the effort, they're not being recycled. the technology needed to process the paper straws isn't available yet. mcdonald's said they're working on a solution. they didn't give a timeline for when that's going to happen. deirdre: futures indicate a

cheryl: the federal reserve is planning a new system that would allow payments to be made to banks around the clock, 24/7. the system should be available in 2023 or 2024. the fed's currencies testimony can take days for a transaction to post between banks and of course they're closed on weekends. citigroup and jp morgan are lobbying against the new system. they say it would actually delay the spread of faster payments. deirdre: u.s.-china trade war may force the fed's hand after yesterday's selloff, investors are pricing in another rate cut by the fed at next month's meeting. president trump accused china of currency manipulation. here's the tweet.
5:42 am
are you listening federal reserve? this is a major violation which will greatly weaken china over time. with us now, daniel demartino booth. she is a former fed dallas advisor. good morning, danielle. glad to have you. if you look at fed fund futures right now, some investors are pricing in three more cuts this year from the fed. how likely is that on a scale of one to 10, in your view? >> i think it's a pretty high probability of about nine, actually. it's almost a certainity. if you look at past fed rate cutting cycles, they tend to on average cut about one quarter of a percentage point per month and that would put us actually lower than what history would expect and when you see moves like what we saw yesterday in the march he get and how violently the -- market and how violently the probability increased that the fed will cut on a more
5:43 am
aggressive path, you start to see how little jay powell and his peers control and they've kind of hamstrung themselves and they used a as a the reason for the cut is the trade war and looks like they're keying off what transpires between china and the united states. deirdre: would you say the trade war is more in the driver's seat than jay powell? >> it appears to be the case right now. just based purely on market pricing of where it anticipates the next rate cuts to come from and on top of that, we see that if the president was trying to use september 1st as a ploy, as a negotiating tactic, now that we ratcheted up to being a full blown currency war, he won't be able to back off. you had someone saying how much is this hurting the farm belt and we've seen in the latest services data that the outlook for businesses is the lowest for the last 12 years, so that could
5:44 am
be very problematic going forward if we see the industrials recession that we know has set in in the united states begin to bleed into some of the service sector data. then jay powell's got -- excuse me, he's got problems at home and abroad to contend with which would explain the market further pricing in rate cuts towards the end of the year. deirdre: he has a tough job, no matter how you slice it. there was an op ed in the wall street journal, arguing for an independent fed. we have a blush on the screen right now. -- blurb on the screen. they say we are united in the conviction that the fed and its chair must be permitted to act independently in the best interest of the economy. it continues. what do you think of the former fed heads getting together to make this kind of statement? >> they've certainly been unanimous in their having one voice.
5:45 am
i don't dispute. in fact, i applaud an sanction fully that the fed maintain independence. because of th the reason why jay powell decided to cut interest rates, the fed has never eased policy because purely overseas activity that has nothing to do with the domestic u.s. economy, i think they've shown they may be independent of the white house, but they're not independent of things going on outside of our borders, outside of our economy. deirdre: some would argue that we're now a more globally connected economy so it may be different times. danielle, thank you so much. >> thank you she we are in interesting times after yesterday's huge selloff, we lost nearly 800 points on the dow. look at futures right now. the dow is up 250. s&p is up 29 and-a-half. nasdaq is up 96 and a quarter. how things can change overnight. well, still ahead, it is straight out of back to the
