6:00 am
continues, take a look at futures, gain at the start of trading this morning adding on top of those big record moves yesterday. ceo says it's on the road to profitability, we will tell you when, mornings with maria begins right now. ♪ maria: big show this morning, joining the conversation fox business dagen mcdowell, king college and manhattan professor and chair of the programming in business brian brendberg and former ceo of ck restaurants and author of the capitalist comeback andy puzder.
6:01 am
lots to talk about this morning, once again we follow the bouncing ball of the china story and overnight we are learning that both sides said they would be willing to roll back tariffs, interesting. >> devil is in the details, this can be very good, imagine how much markets might soar if you, in fact, do get this first round deal with china, very good news for investors. maria: we have a rally underway right now, futures indicating double-digit gain, on top of all 3 major averages closing in record territory yesterday over optimism in deal with china, u.s. and china, s&p was up 11 and nasdaq up 46, washington and beijing considering rolling back tariffs of completing phase 1 of much larger agreement, president trump spoke about that in rally last night, listen to this.
6:02 am
>> china is doing poorly as you know, but they are paying billions and billions of dollars and they've never given us 10 cents before, billions of dollars, they gave a lot of the money to our farmers who got targeted but no longer, they are back buying from our farmers, they want to make a deal so badly, frankly, honesty, they want to make a deal a lot more than i want to make a deal, that's the way it is, we are doing very well with china. maria: we will see where this goes now. dagen: the financial times was reporting earlier that the administration was looking tat tariffs of 15%, $111 billion in chinese import slapped on starting september the first, retailers, apparel producers push back on those and the journal follows up and says those are the tariffs, the levies that officials are considering rolling back, but, again, it's a sign of good faith
6:03 am
and we are better than the rest of the world if you look at global stock markets, s&p 500 year to date is up 23% that beats europe, china and the emerging markets, only up 10%, double-digit gain nonetheless, every single sector of the s&p is up year to date and it's those high-growth some say expensive sectors that have done well. maria: all we heard the recession is coming, the recession is coming. >> no recession, kind of silly when they were saying that the inversion curve was going to lead to some kind -- absurd. there is because there's slowdown in the world in general, the united states keeps rolling along with consumer spending high. interesting to see -- trump is always negotiating for america no matter what he's doing and no matter where he is, even if he's talking to people in kentucky, he's talking to xi jinping in
6:04 am
china, always negotiating the deal. maria: he really is, you're right. dagen: i would push back on the inversion of the yield curve, historically been a sign that recession was on the horizon, what the federal reserve did, looked at it maybe with push from the president and said we need to get short-term rates below longer-term rates because banks can't make money lend if you have the inversion and that's exactly what happened, the fed has cut again last week and you finally have a field curve that's flat, certainly not upside down anymore. >> you always have to ask why is the yield curve inverting, we had demand at the top, so it took many out of the market which drove interest rates down on the 10-year and then you had the government trying to finance itself with 2%, i'm sorry, the 2-year, but with the low end, so you have other factors driving that yield curve and so it
6:05 am
wasn't the -- the economy continued to do very, very well other than as you say manufacturing business investment isn't where we would like to see it because the fed took a lot of the enthusiasm out of the market. maria: look at the jobs numbers on friday. >> so good. maria: gm strike, the boeing situation, the number better than expected. >> you talk about where is the recession we were talking about, it's not here, china to the president's point in the speech is really struggling, so he has rated much more leverage than anybody expected in terms of being able to go back to china and say we need you to make some real fixes on the issues we care about. maria: unbelievable while the democrats are knee bent on china, get him out of office, he keeps going and going and i think and rallying, look at him last night in kentucky, the president in the bluegrass state ahead of tonight's governtorial
6:06 am
election. >> 158 million americans now employed, the highest level of employment in our country's history. under my administration we've added nearly 10,000 new factories and many, many more thousands of factories are coming into our country. we slashed the record number of of job-killing regulations, we ended the war on american energy, we are now the largest producer of energy anywhere in the world by far. dagen: stark contrast, whoever is the nominee and the president because it's not just about the millions of jobs, it's not just about keeping energy prices low, it's about our security as a nation and our ability to
6:07 am
dominate and be the world's number one producer and take power from those nation that is hate us, take power away from russia, we can go to the middle east and take hard stance because we are no longer at the mercy with iran that despise us and want to wipe us off the map. i get so excited and i think i've talked about this for 20 years and finally we will see it happen. maria: california pushes back and pushing back and look what it has done to grow and things that people care about in their lives, okay, meanwhile uber, third-quarter miss, third-quarterly lose despite increase in revenue. uber ceo giving timeline in
6:08 am
profitability, in 2021. company cut sales forecast sending stock lower, 17%, andy, what's your take on this given the space, the burger space has expanded competition. >> in and out has the same thing out west. maria: are you? >> people are saying, look, you them in st. louis, everywhere across the country, maybe they are becoming more like a chain that could be impacting sales, we were talking a bit off camera, they are trying to do a deal with one delivery service, you have at least two. the more you have, the better you will do with delivery. look, this is an industry that will continue to do well, shake
6:09 am
shack has to change image a little bit. maria: booming situation, unemployment at 50-year low and you see a restaurant like shake shack down 17% and weaker than expected earnings. >> i think it has more to do than the competition in the space. maria: shake shack problem? >> exactly. an individual firm struggling with same-store sales may have nothing to say about the broader space which is just thriving with all the new options consumers have. dagen: it's like popeyes, shake shack, am i going to stand in the line or get the delicious sandwich? maria: the lines are around the block actually, one situation turned fatal with the chicken sandwich which is just incredible and there was mcdonalds as well, what was your take on the mcdonalds story, ceo out, new information the hr person is also out?
6:10 am
>> yeah, i think that won't affect their sales, i don't think that will affect stock price, mcdonalds always promote from within and they have a whole raft of people, they have a good -- maria: we will talk more about mcdonalds, so widely held, i have to get your take on what's going on in mcdonalds, on deck fox news senior strategic analyst and retired four star general jack keane on iran stepping up its uranium enrichment, former arkansas governor mike huckabee is here on latest impeachment news and former defense and economic under angela merkel joining us, first ecb speech, a lot to talk with europe, in europe, stay with us for all of that short break, when we come back, more changes at the top in mcdonalds, another executive is out on the heels of ceo being fired, details next, the stock is up half a percent, party at the white house, washington nationals meeting with president trump days after historic world series win, new ask maria segment, ask me on instagram,

maria: welcome back, good rally underway this morning, take a look at futures, indicating gain 72 points, dow futures up 70, nasdaq futures up 23, this is all gravy because this is record territory yesterday all the major indices hit record high amid a better than expected third quarter earning season, earnings driving the story for the most part, cut in interest rates as you know and great job's numbers on friday, we are waiting results this morning from pelaton, we will get the numbers as soon as they hit the tape. chief investment capital. you were somewhat cautious when we saw you. >> 6 months ago, heart in trade war and obviously things were
6:23 am
escalating, you saw cap x drop and we said recession was extremely low, classic setup last year as we were talking about good economic growth and the fed was sucking out of liquidity markets and earnings and multiple compression, this year you have the exact opposite, economic growth slow, fundamentals be weak but because the fed cut rates 3 times, you see massive inflation of assets including equity. to put it in perspective, december 24th, 13.6 multiple, roughly 17 and a half based on 11% earning growth next year, certainly a year for the ages, a lot of upside in all assets, the biggest issues for investors, look, the fed policy shift has worked too well, everything is expensive again. many assets were cheap, 10-year on 1.8, fixed income is expensive, high-year bonds only 3% loss suggested yield and
6:24 am
equities 17 and a half times earnings, a mature adults looks at that and says we want to be looking forward. maria: they make it more expensive. >> that's what they are doing. >> does the fed right now, the fed bungled things so badly, do you think they are in a place that supports economic growth and supports the market appropriately? >> so, if you think of the fed, the fed is looking at much slower growth, they want to make sure that financial condition tightening does not exacerbate that, given the backdrop they are in a much better, they are not sucking liquidity and dollars out of the system and fed fund rate that's supportive. we think the pivot has been successful and from here they will be very data dependent. maria: let me ask you about the hedge funds, what's going on with the active management space out there because yesterday we learned that elliot has raised
6:25 am
$2 billion for buyouts, they've got $4 billion in hedge fund push, elliot taken out big stakes in a number of companies, the firm announced plans to raise for hem funds and raising 2 billion just for buyouts? >> yeah, look, i think in general it's been a tough period for active management and equity part of the capital structure and for hedge fund it's been no different. most of the opportunities for ourselves and folks like elliot are really focused on now are more tied to consumer credit or other alternative credit sources, elliot does have the ability to go after companies more specifically in one of successful activists over time, unfortunately most activists several years ago stumbled because of overfocus on value and certainly that's one of the alpha drivers for the bigger firms to take large positions and hopefully not have pg&e and outcomes.
6:26 am
maria: their most recent, they have 6.7% stake in public group of companies and agencies, is there a theme that you think is going the take place in terms of takeovers, is there a sector that is more poised than others in terms of consolidation? >> the one that we have been focused on particularly since regulation was roland back from executive branch further consolidation in the banking industry, if you think of where the caps, basically 750 billion, so what you have seen slow-steady progress, banks are still very cautious. unlikely we so a big boom, but something that we are waiting -- maria: you are talking about the smaller banks. >> community and regional banks. maria: okay. dagen: speaking of hedge funds can i give my friend greg zuckermann a shout-out, quite known writer at the wall street journal, he has a book out a man who solved the market and jim
6:27 am
siommons who sold renaissance, i tried to buy it, one of the most fascinating stories, but jim simmons. >> has done a great job. dagen: have you read it yet? >> i have not, success for -- if you look at renaissance and other firms, it's very hard to continue to update models and not data fit. maria: yeah. >> so data fitting is when you add too many variables to your models and data and you get blasted, so one of the things that they have done successfully evolved their variables and we all know that markets evolved but doing in a way to avoid data fitting, it sounds simple but very, very hard. maria: doesn't sound all that simple, by the way. [laughter] dagen: jeff bezos went before he started the little company called am done. maria: he started with books, goldman sachs, wealthiest
6:28 am
clients to invest in the u.s. as opposed to the rest of the world, goldman telling on u.s. equities. >> we 100% agree with that. unfortunately europe is stuck that they have been since euro zone crisis, they did have good growth since 2017 and since then downhill, from a nonultra case, we like the u.s., the other part that's important if we get a downturn, let's say cap x keeps dropping, we start initial claims pop-up, there's no environment now where the u.s. has downturn, where the rest of the world doesn't get taken to the wood shed, when that happens, europe will offer and it's very different than precise sis period, the crisis was a u.s. problem, u.s. housing, u.s. consumer that exported to the world, this is an issue if we

6:34 am
a group of young hackers say they are the good ones, one of them joins me later this hour, we will talk about that. all the stories coming up tuesday morning, first top story this half an hour, conflict in iran, iran stepping up uranium enrichment breaking from the limitations of the nuclear deal this as president trump is imposing new sanctions on iran targeting the inner circle of iotola including one of his sons, iran has slammed the sanctions calling them desperate, retired four star general fox news senior strategic analyst general jack keane. thank you very much for being here. >> glad to be here, maria. maria: what kind of retaliation could we see from the sanctions? >> well, first of all, i think that the reaction that we are seeing is something that we have seen before, remember what the iranians play here is they want to get economic relief particularly from the european nations who are still in the jcpoa namely the uk, france, and
6:35 am
germany by busting the restrictions imposed by the jcpoa and nuclear deal, they are increasing centrifuges and violating them in violation of the agreement and they make disqualifying statement, however, we will come back in compliance if you provide us with economic relief which they believe is justified because the united states who broke from a nuclear deal is imposing sanctions on them. so i don't believe the europeans are going to fall for this because they have not fallen for it before, that means the sanctions are going to steady increase on iran just this last week, secretary of state and secretary of treasury imposed more sanctions on iran dealing in construction area as its tied to the iranian republic guard corp or irgc, that's squeezing them tighter, do i believe that we will likely see some military
6:36 am
action by their proxies as we saw a number of weeks ago against the saudi oil fields, this is a play that's very important to them because it gets world attention and they want the world attention then to focus on president trump to reduce the sanctions, and i do think they'll do something like that in the weeks to come. maria: they are also finding themselves in the cross hairs, the u.s. imposed sanctions on 9 people connected to the iran supreme leader, so they're actually going after the people who are connected, there were also clashes between iraqi security forces an antigovernment protestors who attacked the local iranian consulate, what's your take on the pressure on the ground? the pressure in iran is
6:37 am
significant, power outages, everybody except the elites are being affected, high unemployment, spiraling inflation, they've never had a challenge like this since regime came to power 40 years ago, so clearly they're getting more and more desperate and those sanctions that you mentioned with secretary mnuchin, those are tied to rigc and construction industry that's a part of what they do, the second thing in iraq, it's very interesting, in iraq tensions and grievances against the local government have been building for weeks and months because they just have not been able to provide government services, the people believe the government is fundamentally corrupt and they are correct about all of that but what they also are doing is blaming the iranians who are the power backers behind this government, significant influence and when the protests started back in october, maria,
6:38 am
the iranians proxies inside of iraq took to the streets and began to shoot the protestors, they believe they killed somewhere in neighborhood of 250, so yesterday was a very significant event, the protestors stormed the iranian consulate in southern iraq. maria: yeah. >> nothing to that degree has happened, last year they protested against iranian consulate, but that's significant event and just demonstrates the iranian -- the iraqi's people frustration with iran and the influence they have in their country. maria: does this flair up on a military basis with the u.s. and what about the readiness of the u.s., you and i have spoken about this before, yesterday the u.s. secretary of the army joined us ryan mccarthy and here is what he said about the readiness of the military right now. maria: in terms of the readiness where you are, i know that the
6:39 am
army was -- was really beaten down when you looked at sequestration and decline in terms of defense spending, now we are looking at increases for last 3 budgets. >> what we are concerned about is fiscal situation of a continued resolution, on day 33 today that we don't have a budget deal in place, the army has tremendous momentum and in jeopardy in selling out. maria: general, you were the first person a couple of years ago to take note on readiness and importance of readiness on the program and you talked to me a bit about the fact that some of our planes in the navy are not even flyable, there are real weaknesses within our army and navy, what's your take on where we stand as we are as he just said day 33, day 34 now of continuing resolution with no real solution to the budget when it comes to defense spending?
6:40 am
>> yeah, so iranians understand that continuing resolution is just another word for meaning, you can execute what was approved last year but given the fact that you do not have a budget for this year, then you cannot execute any of the new things that you want to do, so that's why it is so much opposition to a continuing resolution which is supposed to mean a temporary thing for a few weeks or a month, as it goes in fiscal year and what the services are trying to do, dig out of deep hole that we put ourselves in due to wars, budget and sequestration and we have a long way to go, heritage just came out and wrote a part yesterday saying the army only has 29 out of 50 required brigades that are combat ready, the navy has 290 shifts and the requirement is 400, the air force is significant short pilots and not flying all the airplanes that they have due to readiness problems and marine
6:41 am
corp is 60% when the standard is 90%, the resolution puts on hold, maria, that's why the services will be frustrated until the congress finally passes the defense budget. maria: but i don't understand why, general, is this politics, do democrats not want to approve the spending to get our army and navy and air force back up to speed because they don't like what the president is doing? >> well, i think that's part of it, i mean, what we are being told is the democratic opposition to approving the defense budget has to do with the money that the department of defense was appropriating for building of the wall. maria: unbelievable. >> major issues that they are dealing with here, that's pretty frustrating because it's a very small part of the overall defense budget which is around $738 billion, yes, so that's part of it, i think there are
6:42 am
some other issues there that concern the democrats to a particular degree and hopefully they will negotiate this out and get budget out quickly. maria: until then we live by continuing resolution after continuing resolution, general, good to see you this morning, thank you so much. general jack keane there, the state of texas making progress on promise to clear out homeless camps overwhelming the city of austin, aisha live this morning, she's in austin, aisha. >> good morning to you, maria, i'm standing in one of the overpasses in austin, texas that was hit by the state yesterday, they did the sweep inside this overpass and take a lock around, looks exactly as it should except for a couple of dumpsters full of stuff, but this is far, far better than what we saw yesterday which was basically like tent city in here, let's go ahead and show you the video now, we are talking about needles, feces, rats, make-shift
6:43 am
weapons laying around and so fdot came and the rest of it, all went into the trash. the governor of texas greg abbott taking action after city leaders legalized camping on sidewalks and some folks are now applauding that he stepped in. >> i think you have to be naive to think that austin won't become the next san francisco or la or seattle and nobody here wants to. >> yeah, so these sweeps continued today and they will continue on a weekly basis, i actually got the speak with the homeless man who says you know what, he's going to go right back to the overpass. >> i'm just going to go a block and then when they leave i will go right back. what have we solved, nothing, we just spent more government money, that's the only thing
6:44 am
we've done. >> in the meantime, maria, the mayor here, the democratic mayor of austin steve adler faces the threat of a recall, there's actually online petition circulating right now, signatures being added every single day. back to you. maria: did you find out -- did you find out how he became homeless, the individual you just spoke to, i wonder what the overarching issue is, did he have a one-time event; a creeping problem where he became bankrupt or what -- was he forced to sell a house, did he never have a house? >> so there's a variety of reasons, the most often we've heard is that they lost their job, they fell on hard times but several of them actually, maria, have been homeless for years, i mean, we met one man yesterday who has been living under the same overpass for 3 years. maria: wow. thank you. aisha joining us there, easing the chaos at lax, los angeles international airport makes it
6:45 am
easy for passengers to catch a ride, we will tell you how, and we will introduce you to team focused on good side of hacking, yes, there's a good side, we will be right back. get a no-fee personal loan up to $100k. but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening...
6:46 am
so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid.

6:54 am
them instructions but they wanted more creativity involved, so what happened throughout the events, students will spend the first few hours with problems that are in the world, problems overseas with water pollution, or things within our own country with recycling programs, they're going to be using computer science to build applications to solve these problems. maria: so you're hacking into systems to try to change things for the better, you're a professor, how would you like to have this in your classroom? >> i love it, number 1, this is a community oriented thing, so you're getting together and you're spending time together solving these problems, i think that's the fear a lot of people have, this is a very isolating experience, you're not doing it that way. >> exactly, especially in our technologically field is so important, working in groups 2 to 4 promotes how to divide the work and figuring out what needs to get done so it's really
6:55 am
exciting, all the people that we bring together is free. >> and it's free. >> exactly. thanks to sponsors we actually run a free event and one of our missions is to make it accessible for anyone who wants to come so we have our the event coming up very soon, we have people coming from connecticut, maryland, new jersey, new york, very exciting. >> fascinating. dagen: a lot of large technology companies offer bounties, don't they, if you can -- >> yeah. dagen: find holes whether it's their system, software, device, talk about that? >> that's also another hackathon, they range in topics, mission statement to build a hacker community on long island with emphasis on innovation, entrepreneurship, so really kind of driving students to be creative and see how -- what they can create applicable in the real world. maria: you are learning the skills but what if a member of the group decides to do
6:56 am
something illegal, when does it cross the line? >> yeah, that's definitely -- there's something called the black hat hackers where that's those are the negative connotation to the word but for our events, for the purpose, we haven't experienced anything like that, people are banning together in a community and it's amazing too because even for people who don't know how to program whatsoever, so we have workshops and mentors throughout the events, students can learn on site, we actually have mentors from mit, berkeley, stanford as well as sponsors hosting the workshops on how the build websites, thousand build mobile applications, so really it's for anyone and we want to really get people into -- maria: how easy to hack into somebody's system? >> yes, so it's very dependent on -- [laughter] maria: we want to know the truth.
6:57 am
>> yeah, it's very dependent on kind of the situation. we -- depending on your skill set, projects can be all the way from beginner oriented all the way to more advanced, machine learn are big topic that is people use and those can go to the more advanced side. maria: you heard it there right from the horse's mouth, wesley, thank you very much. >> thank you. maria: we will be right back

close under president trump. global markets look like this, the momentum continues in some areas of europe. the fq100 is up 13, cac is up 8, as i mentioned, the german dax index is down a quarter point. stocks rallied in asia overnight on the hopes of a china trade deal. the best performer was japan, nikkei average was up 1 and three quarters percent. tap industry ocoach andkate span earnings, the sticks up this morning. we'll tell you what's behind that. demand for oil on the decline. what is driving of opec to lower its growth forecast. google workers getting political again. employees calling for the tech giant to end their contract with fossil fuel companies and stop funding for some politicians, lobbyists an others. alls those stories coming up this tuesday morning. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, professor

brian brenburg and the author of the book, the capitalist comeback, andy poseenvelope er ipose ner is employr voices heard once again. what do the employees have to say about th the a.i. lab in ch, the a.i. lab is in beijing. >> employees don't have a lot to say about that. dagen this relates to the point about fossil fuels an the geopolitical risk. employees are not thinking two, three, four steps down the line. what does this mean globally. maria: they're not fossil fuel experts? >> not even thinking action and consequence, basic logic seems to be missing from this. >> what does it mean geopolitically. what these employers are doing
7:03 am
is ridiculous. it's unpatriotic. no other country in the world with a company like google exists. for people with these jobs, it's absurd. maria: they can thank america for the strength of google and the opportunity to grow and have independence and be able to walk away from the pentagon. it's outrageous, in my view. dagen: of to basically be a mob monopoly. maria: # 0 90 market share. dagen: they want us to bippity, boppety boo our way to the grocery store. maria: i think the gripe is the a.i. lab in china. the jewel of google is their artificial intelligence and they walk away from the pentagon because the employees balk at working with the u.s. government and yet they set up the a.i. lab in china as china tracks its citizens, using facial recognition to do so. i'd like to hear what the
7:04 am
employees of google have to say about that. you haven't heard anything about it. we're going to get to that. our top story this hour, voters are off to ballot boxes this morning. it's l election day in several key states. in mississippi tate reeves is running against jim hood, vying to succeed republican governor phil bryant after two turns. in kentucky, matt bevin running against democratic challenger, andy bishire. president trump touted his progress in kentucky last night in a last minute push for bevin's re-election. >> you see what's happening with the democrats. they have gotten crazy. the do-nothing democrats and they're not getting it done. under republican leadership, the economy is booming, wages are rising, confidence is soaring,
7:05 am
kentucky is thriving like never, ever before and america is stronger than ever before. under my administration, we've added nearly 10,000 new factories and many, many more thousands of factories are coming into our country. i announced a withdrawal of the united states from the horrible, costly, one-sided, paris climate accord. on trade, we're starting to set records every week. we're reversing decades of washington disloyalty, stupidity and corruption. we're replacing the nafta disaster with the u.s., mexico, canada agreement. we are finally putting america first. and we are going to keep on winning, winning, winning. maria: joining us right now is former presidential candidate, former arkansas governor, mike huckabee. governor, good to see you, sir.
7:06 am
thanks so much for being here. >> thank you, maria. great to be with you on this tuesday morning, election day. maria: i've never seen anything like this, the president gets just hit from all sides, from skeptics and from the democrats and he just keeps getting you and punch -- getting up and punching back. >> he's a president unlike any we've ever had who is using his own political capital to invest in the races of other people of. no president, even though all of them will go out and do some campaigning, most of the time it's more fund raising and a lot of time it's very measured. they pick races they feel like they know they can't lose by investing themselves. this is a president who puts it on the line, day of after day, week after week. i've never seen anything like it. maria: i know. >> for the people in the republican party, who say well, he's not really a republican, i'll just tell you, he's done more to build republican party candidates than any president has ever done, ever. >> governor, he's out on the trail, obviously people are going to look at today's elections and they're going to
7:07 am
want to infer something about 2020. but even though he's out there campaigning, the president isn't on the ballot right now. how much do you think that will matter in terms of interpreting the results that we see from today's races? >> well, to the leftist in the media, it will matter if some of those races don't turn out well for the republican and they'll say this is a bellwether of trump's failing ability to influence a race. the truth is, he can rally some fighters that might have stayed home, might not have been that much aware but this isn't on him. it never is. surrogates can't win or lose elections, the candidates do. what he can do is rally the base of support. but rest assured, if any republican where he's campaigned loses, it will be a all because of him and that's just the way it is. even though it's not true. but let's be assure, it's not the first time the media will be have said something untrue about influence of president trump.
7:08 am
dagen: governor, it's dagen mcdowell. what should we watch for today, the governor's race in kentucky, that seems to be the most talked about. also in my home state of virginia and also in mississippi. >> i think the kentucky race is the most interesting. matt bevin, who i think is a great governor, a terrific leader, has had real polling number problems had that he's he's been facing for over a year. and so the president's injection in that race could be critical. and he's running against a very well-known attorney general who has a long-standing with the political family in kentucky. so this is probably the toughest race on the ballot today. if matt bevin wins re-election, he could make a phone call and thank donald trump. he can also thank the voters that came out for him that the president was able to push forward. but i think in all of the races, the president will have some effect but when it comes down to races like governor, people
7:09 am
ultimately decide how are things going for me in my state and has the governor made any big mistake takes or controversies that caused people to say i ain't going to he vote for them. maria: look at the kentucky nationally -- the economy nationally speaking. there is data from yale university and oxford ebbing objectineconomists, they predict president trump will beat the democrat candidate by 4 percentage points in the national election, less than a year away. analysts at oxford economics calling for a 5 point win for president trump in the popular vote even in the case of a recession and moody's is forecasting that president trump will win 332 electoral votes, more than he won in 2016. so governor, is it all about the backdrop and the economy when we approach 2020 and the election next year? it's about how people feel. >> well, two big things are happening.
7:10 am
one is the economy and i do think that's how people vote. remember back in 1992 and the clinton people famously said it's the economy, stupid, and that was their sort of guide word and they were right. but moving forward to this year's election, there's really two big issues. one is that the democrats have offered nothing but higher taxes, open borders, green new deal that will basically destroy the american economy, unbelievable fantasy programs like medicare for all at 52 trillion and i can't pay for all of that, maria. i did tell elizabeth warren l i'll write her a postdated check and put something on it but i can't cover it all right now. they have nothing but -- maria: you can't cover 52 trillion, huh? >> 52 trillion. ism a little short on that. like i say, i'll write her a postdated check. >> governor, this is andy posner. what is the race in kentucky have to do with mitch mcconnell's race coming up next year?
7:11 am
>> hey, andy. one of my very favorite people, by the way. >> same here. >> i think mitch mcconnell is going to be in good shape when it's all said and done. people can like or dislike mitch mcconnell. i'm going to he tell you something. there's nobody who is a more astute leader of the senate who knows the rules and i've often said you can have somebody who is brilliant on policies and the issues but the person who wins the legislative debate is not the person who is the smartest, not the most articulate, not the person who understands the policy, it's the person who understands the rules of the legislative process. that person wins every time. dagen: i remember when allison grimes ran against mitch mcconnell and those celebrities raised so much money for her and i think he beat her by 15 points. >> he's so good running in kentucky. he knows that state. >> i wouldn't bet against mitch
7:12 am
mcconnell. i certainly wouldn't. maria: we will leave it there. good to see you this morning. thanks so much. >> thank you. have a great day. maria: and to you. coming you, former defense and economic minister under angela merkel, kiki gutenberg is here to talk about the democrats desire to turn the american economy more european. darryl kronk is here on the market records and sail kahn joining us to talk about education in america. don't miss a moment of it. we'll take a short break. when we come back, crude oil in focus, oil demand dipping as opec sees the market share slide. the impact at the pump. google employees are demanding google take action to fight climate change. what they want, coming up. ♪ this is the part where i say i don't it. ♪ i'm stronger than i ever thought. ♪ this is the part when i break free. ♪

maria: welcome back. google employees getting political again, this time they're calling for action on climate change. in a letter to the cfo, employees wrote this. google is a global company with billions of users across the
7:22 am
world. many of whom are already bearing the brunt of climate disaster. as google workers we are committed to putting users first and google must do the same. putting our users first. >> their users use fossil fuels by the way. if you're serving people who live in the world, they depend on fossil fuels. don't you think you want to be engaged in that space to make a difference rather than simply saying you know what, cancel. we're out. we want nothing. you don't make changes in the world if you leave every space that you're concerned about. maria: what do they have to say about china and the way china he poe lieutenants the world. let -- polutes the world. >> not much. although they opened their a.i. department in china. apparently that's okay. it only upsets them if it's in the united states. this is the best argument, the way the google employees are reacting is the best argument for breaking up google that i've heard. these people, they're off the planet, they're not trying to
7:23 am
bring in business. google controls the market. so apparently they feel like they don't have to reach out to he these people across the country that are using fossil fuels because where else are you going to go. dagen: google's employees hate the customers, that's what it points to. google searches alone account for 40% of the entire internet's carbon footprint. so the workers are mad about the climate impact of that, so the google workers actually hate the people that are -- that they're serving ads to, that are the bread and butter of their business, i suppose. i jest, sort of. maria: i really would like to know what they have to say about china. i'd like to hear what the employees have to say about that. because china is the biggest polluter and they're trying to be number one in terms of the super power, militarily and economically and the jewel of google is their a.i. and they've got it in china and we know the
7:24 am
china's behavior, they're rounding up muslims, up two 2 million in concentration cams, tracking their citizens with facial recognition. how come google employees don't have a problem with that? >> don't you think it's the compartmentalization. it's fashionable where google ply ease work, it's -- employees work, it's fashionable to take a stand on this issue. it's not fashionable to do that with china. maria: let's talk about new york. the police commissioner is stepping down, he resigned yesterday after three years leading the nation's largest police force. why? because he's unhappy with the bail rule that -- they're doing away with bail, which will mean 900 inmates are going to be released by january. i've been talking about this story for now almost a year. this is only the beginning of it. as i mentioned months ago, three quarters of all inmates from rikers island will be let out when they close rikers island.
7:25 am
rikers island is a l holding prison. this has everything to do with -- they'll go to that prison and go to other prisons. the bottom line is they're closing rikers island. that means they'll have a lower capacity for inmates. they'll open up three jails in new york and they're not going to come close to the capacity of rikers island. so what are they goin to do? they'll let the people out. dagen: governor cuomo denied any knowledge of this. s he's trying to disa avo vow yu that he knew about the early release of the prisoners based on the new bail reform. but again, i think the broader question for everybody in this country is when is criminal justice reform going to contribute to a dramatic rise in crime? that is something they that you're witnessing here in new york city. i see it every day. people are not getting arrested for shoplifting. they're not getting arrested for simple assault. the laundry der tear gen tear g- detergent at the local drugstore

7:32 am
all three major ind indices wer9 all-time highs idea. global markets this morning look like this, more of a mix story in europe. the cac is up 15, and the dax in germany just turned positive, now up as well 11 points. stocks rallied in asia as well, hopes of a china trade deal there as well empowering markets. the chinese markets were off half a percent. the best performer was japan, up 1 and three quarters percent. uber is hitting speed bumps, stock under pressure this morning, down almost 6% after the ride share giant reported a wider than expected loss compared to a year earlier. results did beat expectations. the ceo said the company is on the road to profitability. he said it could happen in 2021. nonetheless, stock is down this morning. peloton is certainly a stock to watch. the company reporting higher than expected revenue in the first quarter, revenue narrowed from a year ago, despite the gains this morning the stock is

7:34 am
the time. on the et cetera from work, thrift and investment that have been taxed at least once as individual or corporate income and perhaps again as a capital a gain or death tax. it also fails in practice. the question is how much economic damage comes first. according to a report, single workers in european countries making $40,000 take home around $22,000 after taxes. joining us is the former german defense and economic minister, kt gutenberg. what's your opinion of a wealth tax? >> utter nonsense. [ laughter ] >> we've been through that madness in europe. we've had a dozen european countries who raised such a tax and what it's created is a culture of envy, gel circumstancjealousy, ofmistrust. we drive people that create jobs out of our countries. france, you may remember the
7:35 am
french not the '80s -- dagen: i'm glad you said that, just to hear you say -- [ laughter ] >> just for you, dagen. but it was 10, 20, 30,000 wealthy people leaving france at that point. we have had the example of sweden which serves as a t poster child very often when you listen to democrats raising the european examples. you may remember the founder of ikea, you know where he died, where he passed away? in switzerland of all places, not in h sweden. just a few examples, it doesn't work. my home country, we also tried it in germany, it was celebrated as a big idea, there were numbers that have been brought up and i think they're quite realistic that said it damages gdp significantly all the way up to the 5% and unemployment will
7:36 am
rise as well. so those are the things we have to keep in mind when we talk about that. not withstanding the sheer fact it is a tax imposed on people and businesses that have already paid their share in taxes. so i just don't get it. and maybe the last point here. you're celebrating 30 years of the fall of the wall. this week. this very week. welcome back to communism. that's exactly what's happening. dagen: people laugh when i say this, but i said that these plans from elizabeth warren and bernie sanders should be called back in the ussr. because that's exactly what they are. but all of these nations that tried it, tried the wealth tax and then rescinded it or got rid of it should be cheering these plans because guess what, all the wealthy people in the united states would go somewhere else. and that whole idea she has of trying to prevent people from leaving the united states, well, that's unconstitutional. moneys is mobile as maria says all the time and a another

thing, it would be impossible to calculate the wealth of these people here in the u.s. and it would create incentives to own, -- again, the journal points out in the editorial, are you going to impose a wealth tax on farm . because if you don't you'll have a property bubble because the wealthy people will be buying up farmland if it's tax-free. maria: bernie sanders doesn't care. he says no more billionaires. dagen: so no more entrepreneurs. i'm not saying money is the end all, be all. okay, i'm going to start a company here, the next amazon, i'm going to start it here but when i start making a little bit of money, i'm moving to switzerland, i'm moving it to germany, i'm moving it to france. >> sanders and warren have to get -- they have to get it in their heads that the purpose of taxes is to increase revenue. the wealth taxes drive down gdp,
7:38 am
they drive wealth out of the country, impossible to enforce. they're intended to punish people that have been successful. what we need are taxes that raise revenue to pay -- we can't even pay for the programs we have now, we're a trillion dollars short. they want to add in, what is it, $90 trillion over 10 years for the green new deal. you're talking about 32 trillion just for med compar medicare fo. to even talk about this you have to talk about paying for them and they can't. so they focus on the wealth taxes. maria: elizabeth warren keeps ducking the question. >> it's nonsense. >> they're southing on the taxes raising like two, $3 trillion over 10 years. the point in europe, they never raise as much money because it's so easy to dodge it. >> it's an illusion. it never happened over there. and there's just three countries left in europe. but they're taxing it differently. they go after the middle class. that's something different. it's hard to compare. >> they will do that here too. >> second is norway.
7:39 am
well, they've always been an example of look at norway, why are they well off? oil. they can afford such a tax there. that's probably the only country in the world where it works. and then the third one is spain and i don't see spain as the shining example of a functioning economy. so this is something that hasn't worked over there. maria: what happens now with the ecb. let's talk about christine lagarde for a second. she is in the first week as chairman of the european central bank. she's making comments that europe should overcome self-doubt but she steered clear of addressing specific monetary policy issues, this as factory activity declined in europe last month, we keep see the economic data points that show no growth. what does the european economy need right now. >> what's happening, i see a prolongation of the poll circumstance i don't see it -- poll circumstance i don't sepolt
7:40 am
dramatically changing. we have a character there who knowses how politics really functions. she is one who will see compromises. she is highly respected in germany, as opposed to her predecessor mario draghi. she is learning german right now which is quite an interesting task for her. i think she will be capable to embrace the germans and convince them of a few steps forward in certain regards. that's a very important task for her. i didn't expect something dramatic or revolutionary coming from her in the first few weeks. she has to get adapted to the structures in the ecb. it's a big body. all in all, i think it's the right person in the right place and i'm quite hopeful that she will get the message actually into the whole european body. maria: she's not an economist. >> she's a trained lawyer, yes. but is that a bad sign?
7:41 am
maria: no, i just want t just t out. >> i think it's good to have someone entirely different character-wise to the ones we've had before. it offers the opportunity for change. and the experiences she brings into what tha that very positioe stellar. she has dealt with international bodies where you wouldn't expect a different kind of character and the way she handled the imf was not the worst way. maria: all right. we'll leave it there. kt, great to see you. come back soon. love having you in new york. dagen: say it again. >> francois miterand. maria: we love it thank you very much. xerox is getting out of the fuji film deal, the deal ending nearly 6 60 year joint venture. we will take a look at that, xerox shares are up 5 and a quarter percent on this news. comedy for democrats and republicans, seth meyer's new special, funny for both sides of

7:54 am
assemble the entire bike here in the united states. unlike what the typical model was, and that was you order a year and-a-half in advance, have the frames made in china, ship them to taiwan, assemble and paint everything in taiwan and ship around the world to the different distribution points. since we've done that, we have been able to deliver a customized bike to a consumer within 14 days and as a result, we've grown 72% in two years. maria: wow. >> how can you do titanium in the united states and not the carbon? >> the carbon is a whole different makeup, a whole different infrastructure that really the chinese have invested in tremendously. started with tennis racquets many years ago. it's just not something that can just be easily turned on. dagen: you led the way -- they led the way and you can correct me from i'm wrong, i used to mountain bike a lot and you led the way in the ti titanium frame with the light speed bike so they got an early start in

8:04 am
>> i think you're getting a number of things that are happening here, seasonality is good, best months of the market, actually sentiment, investment sentiment is very low which is contrarian indicater, investor sentiment at 20-year two-decade low, steeper yield curve, weaker dollar and actually it's not just the u.s., international markets are actually outperforming the u.s., japan is up in the last 90 days, 8.4%, s&p is up 5.1. maria: even india is doing well. >> we are finally getting global synchronize lift there so it's not just the u.s. market. maria: you don't have synchronized growth across the world. >> that's the challenge as we finish the fourth quarter and into 2020, you have this issue where it's -- it's really challenging to get economic growth. i mean, if you look at the last 6 recoveries, the average gdp growth was 4% through all 6 of
8:05 am
those, the recovery average of 2.3%, half of what the normal recoveries have, now, if you can make an argument that that could extend the recovery, simply because we haven't gotten the elongated growth that we have enjoyed in recoveries. >> but the consumer is so surprisingly resilient right now and the job picture, again, last month blew away everybody's expectations, that does suggest that going into 2020, some of the outlook for gdp growth is undertasted a little bit because we haven't under how resilient the consumer and how resilient the job market is. business spending has down shifted mainly because of trade war and geopolitical risks. 4.6%, 2.9%, still robust, still god and you're correct, the job's market is great, you know,
8:06 am
3.6% unemployment, in fact, companies are having a hard time finding the labor they want. that's the big challenge right now. >> could affect the jobs. do you think business investment would increase if we reach trade deal, will we see resurgence? >> that's right, andy, i think, so if you get a phase one deal as it's layed out this morning, right, 3 things that the u.s. wants, more ip protections, they want more purchases of agricultural products and they want signing on u.s. soil, they want to make a big deal out of it, china wants greater licenses on hauwei and they want the tariffs rolled back, that's the way the deal is shaping right now, you have to have surprise i think to the upside in order for phase one deal to give continued lift from here in our opinion, it's possible, but i
8:07 am
think, you know, we've got good transparency on what the deal looks like. >> do you see concern with possible warren or sanders presidency? >> it will depending on how the polls come out and interesting we went back and said show me the last 23 election years going back to 1928, 19 of the 23 are positive, only 4 have been negative for s&p 500 and 3 of those occurred during recession. so it goes back to this, you know, concept that it's the economy that matters, right, it's not so much, you know, the election but to the point is well taken that the politics are more binary and more polarized in this election than most and some of the policies are being layed out, you know, in challenging fashion. maria: in terms of sectors, i mean, xi pushing higher tax
8:08 am
rate, financial transaction tax, greater consumer finance enforcement, these notes, i guess, these issues would hurt the financials, so do you have a plan if we were to see one of the democrats get in place, do you want to avoid those kinds of sectors, financials and housing, by the way, those are stocks doing well right now? >> if you look at where our exposure is, we are most overweight tech, we still like discretionary and financials, those are the places that we have been overexposed. as the year progresses and looks more like certainly democratic administration and progressive democratic administration, you to think about pulling back exposures to financial and health care are probably the two places that could be most exposed in the environment. dagen: might be nowhere to hide. [laughter] dagen: if you have policies that very clearly in short order would drive the u.s. economy and remove power away from corporate
8:09 am
executives to make investment and hiring decision and wipe out the entire private insurance, these are her ideas, wipe out the entire fossil fuel business as we know it, this is millions of jobs lost. where would you hide? under the bed is where you hide. [laughter] >> i do think there's one interesting thing here, history doesn't always fully repeat itself, if you go back and looked since we've changed in 1972, modern polling method and the way we nominate candidates, a year out from the election carter, president carter was in 13th place in the primaries, a year out from the election bill clinton was in fourth place in his own party's primaries, a year out from the election president obama was in second place trailing hillary clinton by 20 points. maria: what are you saying? >> what i'm saying a year out a lot can change, right, so the idea that the markets are concerned about a more progressive candidate can change throughout the next 12 months
8:10 am
prematurely and history tells you if you're leading the year out, often times you don't carry that party's primary. maria: real quick, is usmca price priced into the market? >> that could be one of your cue 4 lifts and actually a lot of consensus that it wasn't going to get done in 2019, i actually think it's looking much more likely and in fact, getting pulled out to democrats who need a win, particularly if they are going to vote around impeachment. i agree. maria: they may mean another leg up for markets, we are watching shares of uber this morning, the stock is down despite beating analyst expectations. gerri willis. >> uber is down this morning, said to open down 6%, but the company's losses topping a billion dollars, uber nightmare

little bit of a different field as we continue swing state economy series as we shift the focus to the manufacturing sector of the economy, it's so important here, so important to wisconsin and if you talk to people they will tell you it's at least starting to slow, you look at the numbers in michigan and the state has lost more than 6,000 manufacturing jobs year to date, even as it's adding jobs in other areas, so we went out and we spoke to some of the voters here about the trends, about the impact of the trade war and more, take a listen. >> trump ran on bringing manufacturing jobs to america and seems like he's working on with the trade wars, it's not helping us right now, hopefully will help us later on. >> trade war with china is a mistake and it's going to hurt us, you're not going to see it right away but you will see it down the road. >> i think trump is good in a sense that when he gets all the
8:25 am
negative advice, he doesn't care. >> what's good for the country now, in many ways this part of the country is still doing quite well even with the manufacturing slowdown that i talked about, now automation, you can see activity behind me, the company that makes equipment for the automotive industry, also air space industry and as we continue here throughout the day at our reporting and also we want to bring you out, company executives talking about the businesses and talk about how the economy is doing here and we will have that later in the later, remember how important this is, an area that supported ronald reagan and 3 years supported donald trump, the question is how does it go one year from now, happy election by the way. maria: less than a year from now, connell, we will watch you, the pressure is on, house republicans are planning to call committee chairman adam schiff for questioning on the impeachment probe, they want him as a witness to testify as

maria: welcome back, good tuesday morning, thank you so much for joining us, top stories right now before 8:30 a.m. president trump said china wants to make a deal, there's negotiating going on throughout phone calls, some tariffs could be rolled back to get deal signed in november, november 17th is the day we are looking at, trade pushing markets toward a record-breaking day, take a look, dow industrials up 80 points, s&p 500 up 6, nasdaq up 19, this on top of yesterday's record rally where all 3 major indices hit all-time highs at the close of trading, nasdaq is top performer
8:30 am
major index under president trump and up this morning again, we will see more records broken right out of the gate at 930 when the bell rings, global markets this morning look like, this european indices are taking a cue from wall street, s&p up 20 points, cac quarante up 15 and index in germany up by 12. international trade numbers out right now and they are expected to be negative, stocks rallied overnight in asia, take a look at china trade hopes there, boosting hang seng, nikkei average in japan best performer up one and 3 quarters percent. all the stories coming up tuesday morning and impeachment inquiry is heating up as well, republicans are calling on house intel committee chairman adam schiff to take the stand, they want him testifying, fox business blake berman live in washington with the latest, blake, they say he's a witness because he met -- his staff met with whistleblower.
8:31 am
blake: adam schiff is a material witness, probably unlikely, schiff remains at the center of impeachment inquiry, he released deposition transcripts of two of first depositions today and today two more deposition transcripts will be released for high-profile figures, gordon sonland and kirk, special representative for ukraine negotiations, sonland is is key figure as he made a phone call at president trump asking what he wanted from ukraine and schiff released deposition transcripts yesterday the white house officials refuse today show up for closed door questioning that include john eisenberg, schiff say it is no-show builds up another case.
8:32 am
>> this will only further add to the body of evidence on a potential obstruction of congress charge against the president. >> now, at campaign rally last night in kentucky ahead of today's governor's race the president continued to contend that this will all backfire for democrats next november. >> with democrats lies, hoax slander, the democrats outrageous conduct has created angry majority that will vote the do-nothing democrats the hell out of office. blake: more questioning, maria, is scheduled up on capitol hill here for today and tomorrow, tomorrow on the schedule calls for the energy secretary, outgoing energy secretary rick perry to head out for deposition questioning ahead with budget director, spokesperson for both perry say they will not be heading up to the hill to testify tomorrow and then the
8:33 am
schedule also calls for john bolton, the president's former national security adviser to go through a deposition on thursday, subpoena, maria, will likely be needed in the case of bolton to ensure that testimony should it happen, maria. maria: all right, blake, thank you, blake berman with the latest there, the author of to plea or not to plea, great to see you that morning, thank you so much for joining us. >> very early in san diego. maria: i know that. i want to get to the book, let me get your take on what's happening in washington right now where democrats want to subpoena, i'm sorry, the republicans want to subpoena adam schiff, chairman of the committee to testify amidst impeachment inquiry. >> well, i think it's such a polarized atmosphere, adam schiff is definitely, not hiding his opinions or emojis but not
8:34 am
really behaving as somebody trying to get the truth, i don't think anybody disputes that, right? >> it's very political, no doubt about it, so in your book to plea or not to plea you write about the story of rick gates and the mueller investigation, you sat down with rick gates, you spoke to him about his plea deal during the mueller investigation, what did you learn, what can you tell us? >> i think that when i went into it i didn't understand what the plea deal meant, i thought it was to choose between very bad choices, right, and when i started to talk i realized that few f you are called gates, paul manafort, all mike flynn in the middle of such a agenda, the government is going after you, you really don't have a choice because the moment that you don't plea, suddenly double the charges, triple the charges, millions and millions of dollars
8:35 am
and the moment that gates broke down was really the day that he learned that the double charges as you remember, maria, against him and manafort and he didn't have the millions that manafort had. maria: interesting because the whole ordeal shows you what your own government can do to you, when you look at the -- when you look at the story around general michael flynn where they, you know, said we want -- we have agents in the white house, they are around, they'd love to talk to you for a few minutes not realizing that this is was an official interview by fbi agents that they we wanted to entrap him and wanted him relaxed that wrote in mueller report. >> did you notice that neither flynn or gates haven't been sentenced yet. when we started to plan the book, i'm talking to you, the book is out only a few days ago, we saw that rick gates would be
8:36 am
sentenced long ago, if you remember michael flynn went to sentencing last december, still not been sentenced. rick gates sentenced for him only because of conditioning that he's going to be the key witness in roger stone trial which is starting tomorrow otherwise he wouldn't get a sentencing day. maria: pretty extraordinary, situations like that where there was speculation that this was a russian agent and the person was working with the russians and yet no indictment, no sentencing, nothing, the people are walking free and tells you that perhaps maybe this was, in fact, what we all expect that it is and that was entrapment; where is this going, daphne, you have the president getting up after being attacked over and over again and he's continuing to implement his strategies, where do you think this is going with the ig report coming out by michael horowitz and john durham's investigation now
8:37 am
criminal? >> well, i think many things will be out and by the way my book and i told the president which i know he's a friend of yours, friend of mine, that i reveal that you know how early, maria, they knew that there was no russian collusion, they could not prove russian collusion, guess how early? maria: well, i think they were trying to create collusion from the beginning and being new all along that donald trump had nothing to do with it so you're trying to entrap people, you're asking the wrong person, i've been out from the get-go saying there's no collusion and they knew it. >> they found out, don't forget mueller published report end of march 2019, but they found out around mid-summer 2018 that there was no russian collusion and i know it for a fact because they were asking, you know, every day, every time about russian collusion, different team, you know the kushner team,
8:38 am
the donald, jr. team, one day they stopped asking and went to other topics like immigration and what happened in november 2018, there was a midterm elections, i agree with my friend kevin mccarthy when i told the president and i told kevin, he said, that's why we lost the midterm election, maybe i would be instead of nancy pelosi and maybe there would not be impeachment inquiry. maria: yeah, you make a good point, they sat on the news that there was no collusion that they could find because they we wanted to get through the midterm elections, they we wanted to make sure that the democrats had the majority in the house going into the midterm elections which was quite the strategy daphne. >> and the funny part of it that mueller was appointed to investigate if there was any interference in 2016 elections, right, but no to tell you, 2 or 3 months before the midterm election that he found out that there was no russian collusion,
8:39 am
that interference in our elections because half of the country went to vote thinking that trump would be charged or -- or would be accused with anything regarding russian collusion. maria: right. it's a fair to ask, who did the meddling, was it the russians or the cia trying to insert in elections and i know that you asked the questions and have nuggets of wisdom in this book, daphne, great to have you this morning, to plea or not to plea is the book, daphne barak is the author, thanks so much. >> absolutely, thank you, maria. maria: president trump is just tweeting this morning and talking about the american citizens killed by cartel gunmen in méxico, here is what he said. the results being many great american people killed including young children, some missing f
8:40 am
méxico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the united states stands ready the president writes, he says willing and able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively, the great new president of méxico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army writes the president, he goes on the say this is the time for méxico with the help of the united states to wage war on the drug cartels and wipe them off of the face of the earth, we merely wait a call from your great new president, president writing a tweet basically, specifically talking to méxico and its leader, by the way, we can attest to that, we know going on the ground when i went on the ground to el paso, texas and we saw the barriers to cross into méxico but before you actually reach the border you have to deal with the mexican drug cartels, it's very scary situation there. quick break and then microsoft modernizing workforce, the technology giant, 4-day workweek, stuart varney weighs

[laughter] stuart: yeah, okay. okay, look, i'd love to be tax exile but i can't quite manage it but i would like a four-day week and i like the idea. microsoft in japan tried it and they say productivity went up by 40%, i find that rather hard to believe but nonetheless 40% increase even if it was half that was pretty good, they use less printing facilities, less electricity, more relaxed on the job. i'd love to see it come here but i don't think it will come here but for certain industries you could do it. i noticed that it's not affected the price of microsoft stock,

maria: welcome back, education in america, the u.s. ranked 19th in science, 20th in reading, 31 in math out of 35 countries according toas sent back in 2015, nonprofit organization the khan academy working on making education more accessible created more than a decade ago, tens of thousands of students use khan academy to prep for tests, joining me now founder of khan academy. >> great to be here. maria: why do we have low rankings when it comes to
8:51 am
important subjects? >> one factor is that the united states is one of the larger more diverse countries, some of the countries at the stop of the list finland, singapore, and the city of shanghai and if you compare them to some of the pockets, finland to massachusetts, you'd actually see pretty good comparisons but i think what happens -- maria: like what? >> well, massachusetts, some of the high-performing states in the united states will be on top of the list, so what you have in the u.s. is actually a very -- there's a lot of variation in the quality of education. the best of the u.s. is good as anybody but pocket where is we have big issues. maria: cofounder of home depot is a regular guest on the program, joined me last month and he's been donating a lot of money to education and here is what he said about the public education system in america today, watch this. >> public education in america today is a disgrace, it's a disgrace now, i went to home
8:52 am
depot stores in pittsburgh, still talk to kids and every store had a sign up, we are hiring, we are hiring, guess what, we are hiring, give them great career path, he has to be able to read and has to be able to count, this is not asking too much of public education system. maria: i just posted a tweet and i asked the question how come we don't hear more about this as campaign issue? we talk about health care, we talk about national security, we don't talk about making our students better and smarter, what -- what should be done? >> yeah. very close to my heart and what he mentions in the video is exactly right, on the math side, 70% of kids who go to community college have to take remedial math and remedial math is sixth or seventh grade math, shows kids are being promoted through the system but they have massive gaps in learning. any teacher you ask will tell you the same thing, they will get students in ninth grade and some kids who don't know
8:53 am
multiplication tables and one of the things we try to do whether students going to us by themselves or classroom, can we give them the tools to address the needs of each student to allow personalization and that let's them fill in gaps and not build on shaky foundation. maria: the university level is the best in the world, right? >> we have great tools; as university professor i love the fact that you exist but what i really love is that you're giving young people skills they can use, right, one of the problems with the education system is we are spending so much money on subject matter that at the end of the day employers don't care about, it's not helping students launch into their careers, you're going right to the meat of things, to the math, the science, the things that student can use, you're preparing them to create value in the world. >> yeah, that's our hope and it's an interesting trade-off because we also have trying to cater to the system as it is, what people will pull from us.
8:54 am
but i always point out the subjects that are now in high schools, whether it's, you know, you learn biology in tenth grade, physics in 12th grade, that was determined in 1890 by ten university presidents, that was before we had the interstate highway system, we knew about dna, there was a federal reserve, so i think it would be an interesting time to -- [laughter] >> good old days. it would be interesting to rethink why should law be earlier in the curriculum, why not finance, why not statistics, i love calculus, statistics is frankly more valuable in the world. [laughter] dagen: my parents and grandparents saved money to send me to private school -- i don't have my microphone on. maria: you're talk about your parents being able to help you with paying for school, but the
8:55 am
u.s. student debt crisis is real and it's going to be a big problem, 45 million people who collectively owe more than 1 and a half trillion dollars in student loan debt, recent report by investor services, student loan debt could create moral hazard that weaken effective stimulus, is that what you're referring to, dagen? dagen: absolutely, reaching the students in rural areas with the things that can, finding the students who are great at math and letting them know that, that's where the gap is in this country that you were really referring to. >> yeah, i think the two ideas are connected, highest per capita usage is in idaho because there's large parts of idaho where kids don't have access to, maybe 20 miles from good algebra class or good physics class and related to college debt issue and some of the core classes can happen online for free so you can start building momentum going into college and i think
8:56 am
the issue, i have family members who are in similar situations, late 20's, late 30's, hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt and system where you ask the young people to make very important decisions at 18, 19 year's old without a lot of information, a lot of universities don't give metrics on what's the probabilities of getting a job and not figuring out what the return is. maria: great to have you, still ahead with final thoughts from all-star panel, back in a minute ♪ (dramatic orchestra)
