tv Mornings With Maria Bartiromo FOX Business November 22, 2019 6:00am-9:00am EST
smashing demonstration of new electric pickup truck goes really wrong, mornings with maria begins right now. ♪ ♪ maria: big show this morning, joining the conversation dagen mcdowell, the group president, gary b. smith on editorial page editor james freeman. once again we follow the bouncing ball of xi jinping and china trade deal, i thought it was interesting that the president of china came out on international form and we want to work on phase 1 agreement on the basis of mutual respect and equality, your reaction. >> usually our dually elected
president and not their dictator who offers commentator on how it's going, note of optimism, he note that they would retaliate if the united states wants to wage a trade war, i don't know, there was a bloomberg report that lee ho, reformer, trade negotiator expressing optimism, as you said, we've been hearing this a lot for what seems many, many months, years, but -- maria: sure has, take the tariffs off the table or we will not buy the 50 billion in ag products. the warning comes with i want to do a phase 1 deal. >> i think what james alluded to, this is the longest soap opera now since general hospital. [laughter] >> that's positive, oh, but we have to do this, i actually see the ball having not moved forward at all. i think this is just more
negotiations, i hope this gets resolved in 2020, if not, here is the great thing, the markets have seemed to have been inoculated, the markets are doing great in the absence of anything happening. dagen: in absence of escalation. >> yes. dagen: again, president trump can easily roll back the tariffs that went into effect in september and then the ones that are on deck, on deck for december simply because it's in his best interest to keep the economy and keep consumers out there spending, avoid hurting consumers that help you in your reelection bid next year and this follows the news from xi jinping that they had reached out during phone call to invite robert lighthizer, trade representative and steve mnuchin back to beijing to hold the meeting, i always think back to, you mentioned general hospital, i will mention the show veep,
where they are trying to instruct her on how to negotiate with the chinese, she had to firmly hit the table, unacceptable and then storm out and that is a lot of show and that's why i think -- >> when were the next round of tariffs were supposed to go into -- dagen: it's on consumers products, avoid to delay hitting consumers. >> is that date still on? maria: the whole point of contention, the chinese want those increases set to come off and president xj jinping spoke out overnight saying he wants to work out a initial trade deal with the united states but he's willing to fight back if the tariffs are still in place, chinese officials as you say have invited counterparts to beijing, we will see, it looks like there's another positive here but he throws that in that we are willing to fight back, so -- >> you know, with trump you never know if the positive will remain positive for more than a tweet or two.
maria: yeah. >> that's the variable i guess. maria: yesterday schwab and td amritrade, i've learned the deal is being -- they are talk about internal conflicts of leadership, we will see if it's over the price, look at the stock, 7% on schwab and 18% on amreitrade, you have to wonder once the deal got out, i reported it, once this start moving the stock, does that become an issue for the deal because it's more expensive, 18% move on amreitrade, what do you think? >> it's worth noting big picture what a great and better and better deal for consumers trading stocks is, this is -- two traditional discounters,
they are being pressured, they are coming together, they need scale because it's just harder and harder to pull fees out of people and schwab, obviously both of the companies pioneers in the area, we are looking at a long-term really democratization. >> their consumer assets dwarf anyone else on wall street, that's fantastic. maria: not blackrock, fidelity. >> you're right, but it does allow them to be broader into the etf market, i think this is a great deal for them, great deal for consumers, we will have to see what innovations come out, i was saying yesterday on bulls and bears, i was trading back in the time when using a touchdown phone was a big deal
and no one could i envision that i could do most of my phone -- well, we didn't have iphones, i'm excited to see what comes down the road, i don't know if i'll be able to save any money. >> this is kind of the culmination of what's driving this, i think, the long-term movement and pressure to -- that the consumer has been paying less and less to trade stocks. maria: it's looking more and more like a bank, increasingly a bank. you can't call schwab a broker anymore. dagen: that would be the focused of combined company, actual banking services, interest bearing and wealth management as well, but i want to say this deal will get regulatory scrutiny, this is the number one and the number 2 low cost online
brokers, although that didn't -- that is a kind of broad definition now because everybody is in these businesses in some way, shape or form, nevertheless this will get scrutiny. maria: for sure, let's look at tesla, company unveiled new pickup truck but demonstration of the armored glass did not go as planned, watch this. >> sure, yeah. well, maybe that was a little too hard. [laughter] maria: you want to talk about strong glass and don't go through the demonstrations, maybe they needed to -- >> maybe tested that before they did it. maria, oh, my god. dagen: that's the body of the truck, if you could call it that is made super strong steel and they say that it can take blows from sledge hammers. again, i don't know what this thing is, it's way, way down the
road. i don't know what even market they are going for, again, a truck. >> it's not a truck. maria: what's the point. i know you want to say that the windows are so strong and all that nobody is going to be throwing bricks at a window. >> even if you weren't, okay, let's practice this a few times. hit the hammer. let's see if the window breaks. [laughter] >> to dagen's point, we are not sure who the customer is, looks like batman might be the customer and i think he would definitely want some protection. dagen: no from -- >> the truck market, the electric truck market is a big market, it's growing at 17% per year in places like china and japan, i think, the electric bus market is really taking off so there is potential there, the problem is they're competing against the big goliath ford and
that will be a big challenge for everyone. dagen: even general-by the way, general motors, ford, these companies are moving to aluminum body pickup trucks because they're so much more fuel efficient, this is a steel, i don't understand -- >> what about the window, are the windows aluminum also because they would not break. [laughter] dagen: you know, i'm hauling long equipment around in my pickup truck and i'm really worried about somebody throwing a steel ball on any point. maria: former president obama speaking out, speaking to donors in california saying that democrats need to chill out about the 2020 field and should instead focus on beating president trump, obama making several comments about the state of the democrat party warning the party about moving too far left, well, we've heard this before, james. >> yeah, i don't know who -- he's talking to himself there.
he's one of the people who has said don't go too far left, you don't need to remake all of america's structural, you know, economy, everything else, health care, he's basically talked about how voters don't necessarily want a revolution, they just want to move on from trump, that would be his position, so i'm not sure, yeah, maybe a moment of reflection. dagen: where is his endorsement of vice president biden. maria: we are still waiting for that, however, he did endorse justin trudeau, so here you go. [laughter] maria: slip in a short break, we are just getting started, also on deck arizona congresswoman and member of house judiciary committee debbie lesko is here talking about the impeachment hearings yesterday, plus trump foreign policy adviser carter page on fisa abuse and the ig report and new information this morning about a criminal investigation into the fbi lawyer, former connecticut senator is here on impeachment and iran, cofounder and ceo neil
blumenthal on the company's launch and new york stock exchange stacy on 2019ipo, status check there because, of course, things have slowed down, don't miss a moment of it, slip in a short break and facebook deciding not to police political ads, this morning brand-new pressure on ceo mark zuckerberg, we have that for you, hopkins scores, more special than a touchdown dance, what the wide receiver did last night. ask maria segment, don't forget to send me your questions through instagram or twitter accounts at maria bartiromo, back in a minute.
maria: welcome back, the president and the first lady honor two fallen american soldiers, cheryl casone on headlines, cheryl. cheryl: that's right the president and melania trump made unscheduled visit to dover air force space to pay respect to two soldiers killed in afghanistan, 33-year-old chief david nadal and circumstance, jr. killed on wednesday while providing air support to ground troops. well, a former fbi staffer reportedly being investigated for altering a document in russia probe, the document apparently discovered by justice department inspector general michael horowitz. it's unclear what document was altered and if it had any impact on the russia investigation, carter page is going to be joining maria in the 7:00 a.m. eastern time hour this morning.

maria: welcome back, farm internal revenue tones for markets, futures indicating gain in dow industrials on china trade optimism, s&p is up 2 and a half and nasdaq futures are higher by 17. chinese president xi jinping saying today that he wants a phase 1 trade deal with the united states on the basis of, quote, mutual respect, he's not afraid to fight back if not. some investors not so hot on the economy ray bridge water associates making a billion plus dollar bet that global markets will tank, tank by march according to wall street journal this morning, joining us right now chief investment officer of northern trust wealth management katie nixon, what do you make of ray dalio's remarks? >> we don't agree, i don't think anything in the forecast that would suggest the market is going to tank, if you think about what what would make markets tank, walk get away from trade deal and probably going
forward with the december tariffs, that might be somebody that would certainly create a lot of negative sentiment in the market, that's not our base case, we think that they'll be some sort of a deal that struck or an economic recession and we certainly don't have that in our forecast either, we disagree with that forecast that the markets are going to tank by march. maria: pretty good backdrop actually. >> we talked about the consumer doing well, the big question with this china trade fight has been do ceo's hold off on investments, do they do nothing, do they move manufacturing out of china and stake their claim someone else, what do you see now as you look at companies, earning reports coming in, earnings calls happening, what's the message out there on investment by companies? >> so, i mean, you exactly put it correctly, there's indirect and direct impacts of trade confusion, the direct impacts are that companies are having to
make decisions, they're not waiting, as investors we have the luxury of going in and out of market based on what's happening with the trade discussions, companies have to make long-term strategic companies right now and i think they recognize that things are different and they will stay different, so they are making changes in their supply chains, they are creating more flexible supply chains and so the direct impacts are really obvious when you listen to conference calls, the indirect impact and it's so important that we get past this is the uncertainty effect where there are a lot of companies that are saying, we are not quite sure how to build, how to grow in this new environment, we want to see how the dust settles and until we see how the dust settles, they're not going to do anything. we do see sort of a pulling back of cap x and the kind of investment spending that you would in an economy that's doing okay as you say with consumption background that's really strong. maria: the state of the consumer is sort of mixed in terms of the last couple of days, you had
retail earnings bag that was mixed although apartment were blowout and nordstrom shares up yesterday, william sonoma down 5%, third quarter earnings decline, what's your characterization of the consumer right now? >> with the earnings in particular there's been execution issues related to some of the earnings, misses, i would say generally, though, the backdrop for consumption was strong. if you think about it, low unemployment, wage gains that are finally showing up, no robustly but positive, housing has started to come back, now consumers don't start to buy houses unless they're pretty confident about their future so i think the backdrop remains pretty solid for consumption. that's not to say gang busters, it's not to say that we don't expect momentum to slow and certainly we expect gdp will slowdown next year. maria: that's what you said yesterday, dagen, with the macy's underperformance, this is a macy's story and not a consumer story. dagen: right, home depot's
problems are home depot problem, you look at wal-mart, the biggies, wal-mart, target, and txmax, tjx blowing it out of the water, those are stores that people want to shop in, in luxury, apparel retail that the sales have already broken big 30 to 50% off sales, they broke earlier this week, that's telling because again with barney's going out of business and liquidating, having to compete with barney's, something to keep an eye there. i want to talk about even with bumps on the road with trade negotiations, you have nancy pelosi now skeptical that the usmca trade deal will pass this year which is a little bit of a turnaround in the last week, you've got the federal reserve standing at the ready, maybe to cut interest rates again, the balance sheet expanding what about $250 billion in just the last couple of months, the fed says we are not trying to
stimulate the economy, we are trying to smooth out short-term lending markets, nevertheless, that's a very powerful bedrock or balance for the markets. >> the liquidity story globally is very, very strong, but to your point, i think the market expects the fed to be at the ready and so sort of the powell put is very powerful right now frankly and i think that the u.s. certainly has a little bit more leeway to -- to stimulate and to lower rates here in the event that we do have a disruption because of a delay in the usmca, disruption because of tariffs or any kind of a global hiccup, we have more room here and we are confident that the fed will use it. >> katie, a quick question, we kicked off the segment with ray dalio predicting decline in the market, first of all, that would have to happen to come into play by march, so i think that's
un -- unlikely. >> but looking at the money market data, we have seen sort of this unprecedented inflow into cash and even just to fixed income, so there is sort of this under-own story -- >> you would think a lot of clients would come in and buy even more. >> you know, it depends, best intention that is we will buy when the market is low and sell when the market is high, especially when the market is low, something pretty terrible seems to be happening and investors don't tend to want to jump with both feet.
maria: you want to be owner of stocks going into 2020? >> we own u.s. stocks, from a tactical perspective. we like yield. maria: you don't like negative interest rates then? [laughter] maria: of course, we all want yield. thank you so much. katie nixon joining us, sasha baron cohen known for insulting people in the name of comedy, he's targeting zuckerberg. we will tell you all about it when we come back. or trips to mars. no commission.

elections this weekend, joining me senior writer for the wall street journal, hey, good morning to you. >> hey, maria, great to be here. maria: what did you think of the bill, passed in the senate and then the house and interesting to see the administration tieing china's behavior to trade talks that we will have to check that there's autonomy going on between china and hong kong in terms of, you know, doing more trade. >> you know, i think it's pretty remarkable, first of all, how quickly this happened with the senate moving this week and the house turning around and passing it right away, and senate republicans have put president trump kind of in a tough position, this bill really irritate it is chinese, it could get in the way of any kind of agreement between china and the u.s., you know, the president is trying to calm things down
before 2020 reelection campaign, so, you know, it's just -- it's another complication in all this but at the end of the day, you know, i think what you're seeing is senate republicans, house democrats saying we have to put american values first and american values here are to support people, you know, fight forking their freedom in hong kong. >> what you guys think, it's a slippery slope, a million or 2 million uyghurs in concentration camp, you might have more than one situation at hand? >> i think the president has signaled that the uyghurs aren't part of the discussion, this is partly to make sure that no one no democratic primary becomes more aggressive on trade than he is. some of -- you have seen in the debates saying they will go
further than economic issues, sanction for other issues, but jon, i guess you could say this is more leverage for the president, i mean, to maria's point, i think i probably would have wanted a bill that was more targeted at the mainland than essentially kind of punishing hong kong is going to be the remedy here as i understand it if the president choses to use these authorities to punish china. >> yeah. well, you know, hong kong in the end is being punished by china more than anybody else. one other thing i'd we wanted to point out, we talked so much with a trade deal with china, phase 1 deal, you know, at the end of the day when you look at what's going on in hong kong right now, when you look at what's going on with the uyghurs when you look at how chinese are responding to american threats by doubling down on their
support of state-owned enterprises and when we set out to fundamentally change the way chinese -- china behaved this trade confrontation, you know, it's not working. i think we can say at this point china is not changing, they're not changing their ways and so, you know, if we get a phase 1 deal, it's a deescalation agreement, doesn't mean china is going to fundamentally change, the conflict that we have with china is now a part of the economic and political landscape of the 21st century, period, end of story. dagen: what is being accomplished, jon, changing the ways of american businesses that do business in china that manufacture in china and president trump has made i would say every business involved in trade with china to rethink the world, if you will, number 1, number 2, our viewers are incredible by smart and somebody
who is watching now david harrison said can the chinese be stalling to tank the markets, tank tank the economy ahead of the election next year where they think somebody else might be kinder and gentler to them, only people in the polic bureau, if you will, only understand the motives behind what china is doing and could that be what's at play? >> well, i mean, i think the chinese definitely recognize that they have leverage right now because the president is getting focused on a reelection and he doesn't want the markets, the markets tanking, and i think what that means for china is that -- and we've seen this over and over again, they just dig in their -- they dig in their heels, they say, listen, we are not going give you what you want because we know that you don't have to and not crack down on us on an election year.
i don't know if they think they will get better treatment with a democrat than they would with president trump at this point, i think for them it's all about using our election as leverage to dig in their heels and say, you know what, we are not giving you what you want. maria: also what you said earlier, it's a culture, jon, i mean, i don't know that you're going to get china to stop stealing intellectual property frankly or stopping the forced transfer of technology, they don't want enforcement mechanism in any deal to put consequences in there should they do so, we are talking about two completely different cultures. jon: right. maria: it's tough. jon: that's why i say, you know, for investor or anybody else, when you see the word deal, deal, let's not make too much out of a deal because this is a -- this is the new way of life in the 21st century between u.s. and china. maria: we tried to emphasize that the south china morning post is owned by alibaba, okay, this is basically a mouthpiece for the chinese government, when you see the south china morning
post coming up saying president trump is considering taking away all tariffs, you have to give it a second look because this is coming from the chinese government, but -- jon: that's another sad story about hong kong, you know, the semp, as we used to call, very kind of boisterous voice. maria: i want to get your reaction to this, listen to this, jon. >> we don't need negative interest rates in the country because the economy is stronger, that's the thing. we are in a place where we have fed funds rate come down by 75 basis points to be more accommodating to help push the economy forward. the reason positive interest rates is our economy is growing at 1% plus and other economies are not and that's why they need negative rates. maria: jon, what do did you make
of that? jon: he's right, it comes down to that, the president has said he wants negative interest rates, the message is be careful what you wish for, our economy is growing stronger than countries in -- in europe and so they have negative interest rates to deal with an economic problem, we don't want negative interest rates and the fed said earlier this week they are not interested in going down that path. maria: are you expecting a cut in december fed meeting? jon: no, i think the fed is on hold for right now, they want to see how things play out for a few months. maria: jon, great to see you this morning, have a great weekend. jon hilsenrath joining us, facebook discussing new ways to discuss political ads on platform. cheryl: facebook increasing the number of people that can be targeted in political ads from a few hundred to a few thousand, this is meant to avoid micro targeting which has been criticized for allowing misleading ads to be aimed at specific groups of people and not seen by the broader public.

the original? >> surprisingly i think it's just about as good as the first one. maria: really? >> it's a different story, rare animated film where adults may be crying while the kids are smiling because -- maria: what a tease. >> it deals with loss but you will feel it more if you've been through it -- you kind of find out what is the deal with their parents. maria: i see. >> it's an interesting story. >> but i hear, i was reading mike, that it's basically frozen 1 all over again down to every song anthem, there's very little -- same exact cast. maria: throwing water on great film. >> no, it's a good complaint, a legitimate complaint. you don't -- if something is not broke you don't want to fix it. >> absolutely. >> at the same time it's impossible not to revisit some of what it's about, it's a different story but it's still sisters.

and how it affected life and it's a good way and smart way into that because if you didn't see the documentary this makes you want to see the documentary on him. >> interesting, tom hanks the only person i could imagine playing absolutely -- do we have another tom hanks coming along? >> if he's there, i haven't seen him or haven't acknowledged him. he's a pretty nice guy. dagen: do you think he would get nominated for an academy award, too soon to know? >> really crowded field. dagen: irishman. >> fantastic. maria: loved it. >> master piece. no doubt. it's not a sequel to anything which is, you know, worth seeing. dagen: is it out yet? >> it's netflix or theaters, but will be on netflix in thanksgiving. maria: mark sergeant, former policy adviser to then cant dade

the dow, four weeks of gains, the dow was down 54 points, s&p was down 5, nasdaq was lower by 20. the european markets look like this. markets higher after the flash purchasing manager's indexes came out, they were mixed, not worse than expected. the cac in paris is up 16, dax in germany is higher by 10. ecb president christine lagarde giving her first major speech leading the central bank. u.s.-china trade uncertainty and upcoming election in hong kong keeping volume low in asia overnight. japan consumer price index showed consumer inflation was stagnant. the nikkei average was up a third of a percent, fractional moves across the board. tesla's new cyber truck showing cracks, yeah, a smashing demonstration of the new electric truck goes horribly wrong. we'll tell you about it. victoria's secret hitting the brakes on the big fashion show. find out why the fashion show

consumer does. i'm interested in seeing what the u.s. consumer spending numbers as they start to come out look like. maria: we are talking about all of that this morning. our top story this hour, the fiery final day of the public impeachment hearings yesterday. fiona hill and david holmes testified on capitol hill, both witnesses defending ukraine from allegations that's the country interfered in the 2016 presidential election and making it clear that russia is responsible. watch. >> the u.s. ukraine relationship has never been stronger. ukrainians and their new government earnestly want to believe that. ukrainians cherish their bipartisan support and they recoil at the thought of playing a role in u.s. domestic politics or elections. at a time of shifting allegiances and rising competitors in the world, we have no better friend than ukraine based on questions and
statements i've heard, some on the committee appear to believe that russia and the security services did not conduct a campaign against our country and perhaps somehow, for some reason, ukraine did. this is a fixal narrative that's been propagated by the russian security services themselves. the unfortunate truth is that russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. maria: the hearings may be done for now but the house is not finished with impeachment. sources telling fox news potential articles of impeachment could include abuse of power, bribery, contempt of congress, and obstruction of justice. joining us right now is arizona congresswoman, member of the house judiciary and homeland
security committees, debbie lesko. thanks very much for joining us. >> thank you. maria: where is this going and what is your reaction to this week's hearings. >> the republicans don't know for sure, but i'm gearing up to be ready in judiciary committee for the report from schiff, when we return from thanksgiving
break, so just in a couple weeks and who knows if we're even going to have witnesses in judiciary committee. i mean, the judiciary committee is the committee where they're allowing president trump to have his counsel there, but it's really up to chairman nadler what he's going to allow, if he's going to allow any republican witnesses, any witnesses at all, or what he's going to a how the president's -- allow the president's counsel to do or ask for. it's all up to the democratic control which is really quite biased. maria: in terms of timing, it will come to the judiciary next week. there's some speculation that the house will vote on an impeachment the
week of decembes then? we've heard from lindsey graham, we heard from david perdue yesterday that it's dead on arrival when it hits the senate. what does it actually mean in terms of of practicality with the president being removed from office or not being removed from office? >> you know, i don't see the
republican-controlled senate going through an impeaching the president of the united states. first of all, from my point of view, there has been no impeachable evidence that has come out at all. now, of course the democrats totally disagree with me, but you know, this is something that the senate's going to have to decide. now, i also read somewhere that the house could delay moving it over to the senate. i don't know the legality of that or not. but i'm expecting -- we've been hearing that be ready in judiciary committee, we'll probably have a vote on impeachment articles by decembee been told. dagen: very telling, congresswoman, is echoing sentiment you just expressed, will herd did yesterday, congressman on the intelligence committee. a moderate former cia officer not running for re-election and people were paying close
attention to what he's thinking about impeachment and he said this. an impeachable offense should be compelling, overwhelmingly clear and unambiguous and it's not something to be rushed or taken lightly. i have not heard evidence proving the president committed bribery or extortion. i also reject the notion that holding this view means supporting all of the foreign policy choices we've been hearing about over the last few weeks. will herd leaning clearly toward a no on president trump's impeachment. very, very significant. maria: yes, it is of. >> you're right about that. i think republicans in the house are all united as far as i've heard against an impeachment vote. maria: okay. >> and the democrats of course, we'll see. last time, two of the democrats joined republicans against even going forward with the impeachment inquiry. maria: i spoke with one of them this weekend, jeff van drew, democrat from new jersey who said he's a no, he's going to
vote against impeachment when it comes to the r floor and he said a lot of his democratic colleagues are voicing concern that we keep doing this and it's going that wher nowhere and we't getting anything done. let's talk usmca. tomorrow is one year since the signing with canada and mexico. despite several promises to bring the vote to the floor, house speaker pelosi is hinting it will likely not come up for a vote this year. kevin mccarthy blasting the broken proms misses. listen to this. >> i'm not sure if we came to an agreement today that it would be enough time to finish. >> in the nine days, we'll be at one year anniversary when the three leaders came together to sign the initial united states, mexico and canada agreement. speaker pelosi promised they were on a path to yes. how many times have we heard that? but today in her presence press conference she thought it was in doubt they could get it done this year.
maria: congresswoman, what do you sunshine. >>think?>> well, it's very cleat speaker pelosi and the democrats' priority is impeaching the president of the united states, not about doing what's best for the country. you know, the state of arizona has a lot of trade with mexico and canada and so passing the usmca is a big deal for arizona and the entire country. when she says she doesn't have enough time to do this, give me a break. she has been spending every single moment, every time on impeachment stuff and not things that are important to the country. this is wrong and this is what the american people are so frustrated about. when i go home, they say would you guys please get something done. they're sick of this. maria: i think voters are going to remember it. i do. >> congresswoman, a question for you. in light of the fact that i've seen the polls reflect that the
number of people, percentage of people favoring impeachment continues to go down, i think this is kind of off the radar of mainstream america, the whole proceedings. but i'm curious, you're in touch with the people out there in as arizona, what is on their minds? are they talking about the hearings? are they talking about trade? or do they just want to go on with everyday life. >> well, it depends on who you talk to. so the people that are real trump supporters are like go, debbie, keep defending trump. of course, the democrats that hate trump are saying i'm a terrible person for defending president trump. but the people that really aren't engaged are like would you guys do something already. they are just sick of it. i talk to different business -- small business owners in arizona and they're like would you please get something done over there. they're sick of the entire congress, quite frankly, and republicans are getting wrapped into that even though it's not our fault. maria: yeah. all right.

tesla's cyber truck reveal, it had a few cracks. kristina partsinevolos has details. >> reporter: tesla wanted you to trade in the classic pickup truck for what is the cyber truck, looks like a trapezoid on wheels or a piece of art. the reveal didn't go as planned in california yesterday. before we get to that, let's start talking about some of the specs on this vehicle that you're seeing on your screen right now. it's stainless steel, bulletproof, supposed to perform better than a porsche 911, seats up to six people and the most expensive version, that can actually pull 14,000 pounds. the feature price of the basic one is about $39,900. and it's pretty much in the same range as the ford f-150. we really want to get to what went wrong because that's so much for entertaining. let's take a look and a listen at elon musk.
listen in. >> sure? >> yeah. >> oh, my [bleep]. well, maybe that was a little too hard. >> the person saying that was a little too hard was elon musk. the person smashing the car right now is the design lead. so let's give them credit. with the sledgehammer there were no scratches on the car but the moment -- maria: i see dents with the hammer. >> i wasn't there. it's the metal ball. it not only happened once but they were like oh, no we're going to do it again. takes the ball, throws it again, shatters the car. this is not what musk had expected. listen to what he had to say. dagen: go ahead. >> we'll fix it in post. >> fix it in post is pretty much what he said there. [ laughter ] >> i know, it's a funny thing. if we were to just talk about the market as a whole, we know that ford dominates the pickup truck market. but they too are going to be
developing their own electric f-series truck. gm which makes chevy, they're putting up the their own line of electric trucks in 2021. you have competition in the field. but to go back to that video, despite all of this, the internet is obviously having a field day with this. so let's bring up some of those tweets that we've seen. the first one, i'm going to tell my kids this is the sigh r better truck or no this -- cyber truck, this one here says i'm going to tell my kids this is okay. this is a red version of it, obviously not tesla. another one, a lot of them are saying i'm going to tell my kids, i don't understand what the fuss is about the tesla cyber truck. it looks okay to me. that's a doorstop. dagen: it's not a pickup truck. having gotten my driver's license at age 16 and a ford f f-150 pickup truck it's not a pickup truck. it's meant to look like according to elon musk something from blade runner and if you look at that, when they threw the metal ball at the glass, it
says demo of armored glass instead of demonstration. that meant demolition, i think. [ laughter ] >> the funniest part was when he said -- when musk said maybe that was too hard as if they practiced, okay, only throw the metal ball five miles an hour. 1 o106 miles an -- 10 miles an hour, it's going to break. >> that raises the question, what is the target market. is it the people that have the pickup trucks or the hard cortez la fans. dagen: it's the hard core tesla fans initially. the first model is estimated to come out in late 2021. we know their history of missing launch targets. you're going to have to wait a long time for this. maria: we will be watching. coming up, officially done, the victoria's secret fashion show off the runway after 20 plus years. why the company decided to clip angels wings coming up. warby parker, expanding, what

been thinking about for a while and we found that over 40% of our customers wear contact lenses. so we spent the last 18 months researching the market and trying to find one of the best lenses available to provide to our customers. maria: how big is that market and tell us what it means for w a arby parker as a business. >> contact lenses alone are over $5 billion market in the u.s. eye exams are $6 billion plus market in the u.s. and we've been making a big push into vision testing and eye exams. so when we look at this, we're now entering a market that's over $11 billion in the u.s. so we're really excited. i think if we had started warby parker 30 years ago, maybe we would have gone into watches or other accessories or apparel but we would rather focus on what do our customers need, what's adjacent, these are big markets for us to tackle. >> did you wait until the fda
advisor came out against lasik to release contact lenses or is that just a great coincidence? >> sometimes the gods shine favorably on you. >> exactly. dagen: go ahead, james. >> i was going to ask, can i get an eye exam and order and everything just on my phone or how does that -- i know we talked about you have some technology related to the eye exam but i'm wondering how easy it is for the consumer. maria: you can try glasses on from your phone. >> yeah. so we built some pretty innovative technology where on the warby parker app you can try on glasses, we have a separate app called prescription check where if your prescription hasn't changed we can issue a new eye glasses prescription. we're exploring whether we can do that with contact lenses. so stay tuned for that. but now you can go into most of our stores, so we now have 112 stores across the country and in canada, get an eye exam, we can
give you a contact lens prescription as well. there was a law passed a few years ago that for contact lenses eye doctors do have to -- it's called a contact lens rule. they have to provide your contact lens prescription so that way you can buy it from wherever you want to get the lowest price and most convenient available. and there's what's called passive verification. so if you know your contact lens prescription, but don't necessarily have your prescription on-hand, we can call your doctor and then the doctor has eight hours to get back to us to verify that prescription. dagen: there was a real racket, the contact lens prescriptions, because the doctors would hang onto them because they didn't want you to go somewhere else to buy your lenses. so thank goodness for that. the innovation here is in the packaging, mostly, correct? >> yeah. our scout contact lenses are top quality, super comfortable,
moist. they have center form technology on the edges that increase comfort. one of the things we're really excited about is this flat packaging that is 80% less waste than traditional, the blister packs. it's more hygienic as well because when you open it, the contact lens is always the right side up so your finger is only touching the outside of the contact lens that never comes in contact with your eyes. >> do you manufacture these or do you outsource them? >> we've partnered with a japanese manufacturer that has been working on innovative products like these for over 50 years. maria: all right. we will leave it there. great to see you, neil, congrats. thanks so much. coming up, a former fbi employee is under criminal investigation, accused of falsifying fisa documents, the fisa document which was used to wiretap this man, carter page. former foreign policy advisor to then candidate donald trump

maria: welcome back. a fox business alert now. a former fbi employee reportedly under criminal investigation. he's accused of falsifying documents tied to the surveillance of 2016 trump campaign of staffer carter page. the a alarming report coming weeks before the release of the doj inspector general report. joining me now in a fox business exclusive is the former foreign policy advisor to then candidate donald trump, carter page himself. thank you so much for joining us. let me get your reaction to what we know here. this of course is in light of
the fact that you were surveilled, you were wiretapped. they had to get a fisa warrant to do so. we found the fbi lawyer falsified documents to get that fisa warrant which ended up you being surveilled. what's your reaction. >> my reaction is this is more of the same. they have been falsifying documents and providing false testimony in the court of law, courts of law for years now. just last year in my one case, you know, on january 30th, 2018, the southern district of new york put a false pleading, misleading the court about abuse of process and the fisa abuse. two days later, then chairman devin nunes with house intelligence totally proved them wrong. maria: yeah. >> so it's -- we've known these things are wrong for a long time but the fake news and the democrats keep pushing this false narrative.
maria: i want to ask about that, the fake news that you referred to, because the media was involved in helping one side actually drive the story of president trump colluding with the russians for three years and our audience know you how outraged i was about the collusion conversation based on no evidence. for three years, we were told that there were people within the circle of donald trump that needed to be investigated including yourself, because they had these ties to russia. tell us what happened. explain to us what happened, for those people who have not been following this as closely as you and i have. >> listen, they have just been putting false information out there to the media. the democrats and their allies in washington, in the media, constantly pushing lies after lies. finally this gets picked up by a court, picked up by the comey, mccabe, fbi, and they got a warrant, a fraudulent warrant, i
believe, to spy on myself as a way of getting into the trump campaign. maria: so you were surveilled for a year and you had to renew those fisa warrants, what, three times, four times. >> well, they had to renew. maria: they had to. >> i had no say whatsoever which is exactly what keeps happening. the same thing with the inspector general report and the case arguing today in the second circuit. maria: i'm going to get to the second circuit in a minute. we were looking at a carter page entrapment line. you were basically invited to tons of conferences in cambridge, international conferences by who we know today to have been an informant of the government, stephan halper. when you were getting the invitations what did you glieng think?>> i give people the benef the doubt. all the people i worked with on the trump campaign are foreign policy advisory committee, the
volunteers, they're some of the best people i ever worked with in my life. maria: you trusted them. >> i definitely trusted the people on the trump team and i knew that in terms of interacting, having the right of peaceful assembly with other people around the world, there should be no problem with it. so i thought there would be no issue. little did i know that some people would have some agenda. maria: so what was their agenda, do you think? tell me what happened in the last two and-a-half years to you. >> well, i always give -- similarly, i continue to give people the benefit of the doubt. unfortunately, there has been a big coverup. as i mentioned, themin then chan devin nunes and chairman lindsey graham and chairman chuck grassley from the senate judiciary committee as well have been showing through intensive investigationings all of the wrong-doing by misleading these
federal district courts in the united states. and so that is a serious offense and unfortunately there has been a continued coverup to this very day. we still don't have the truth but hopefully we'll get that soon. maria: you were saying the media reports, basically what was happening was they were -- you're saying the democrats were putting out news, quote, unquote, and yahoo picked its up and others picked it up about you having relationships with russians, is that what you're saying? >> exactly. maria: those news reports were used as as a justify just fi -- >> i get calls from the washington post, new york times, cnn. maria: and they're asking what? >> they're asking about the same two false allegations which the democrats, their consultants, and their lawyers were all pushing. none of them picked it up but finally they found someone from yahoo news to put out this
defamatory information to the world and really interfere in the u.s. presidential election. maria: they wanted to dirty you up, they wanted to say that you were some, you know, enemy of america, working with the russians. >> well, yes, but i think they wanted to do much more than that too. most importantly, and the main reason they're doing it is they wanted to dirty up then candidate trump and the entire trump camp pain and it really was a dark cloud hanging over the campaign until election in november of 2016, through the transition and going on years now into the early years of president trump's first administration. maria: so we know that those fisa warrants had to be re-upped, they were re-upped three times. you were surveilled for more than a year, about a year? >> it's 90 day renewals. the first one was submitted by sally yates, then the deputy attorney general and james comey in october of 2016. then they renewed it again, just
a couple weeks before the inauguration in january of 2017. and two more times. maria: we should point out that you were never charged with anything. you were never charged with any wrong-doing. >> absolutely. maria: you're walking around. they listened in on your phone calls, not just to hear your phone calls but to get a window into what was going on in the drum mantrump campaign. >> it's worse than that. i've never been asked any questions by any of the federal investigators either doj or fbi that even made any sense or hinted at any criminality whatsoever. so it's not even just clear and convincing evidence. it's just there's no evidence whatsoever because i never did anything wrong and all the people, my fellow volunteers, low level volunteers that i worked with, on the trump campaign, they were again some of the best people i've ever dealt with in my life. the vast majority of whom are u.s. military veterans and clean
as a whistle. maria: we should point out they were surveilling you for a year, getting all the plans of the trump campaign and then never charged you with anything. >> yeah. maria: so there's that. you have a court hearing today. tell me what you're expecting. >> well, similar to the fisa court where they only take one side of the story, so far the southern district of new york only took one side of the story and so now i'm appealing in the second circuit which is a one step below the supreme court, one of the most respected courts in the united states. and i'm cautiously optimistic that they will actually listen to the truth. they actually gave me a hearing when i was not even granted a hearing at all, right when i was getting all these death threats t southern district of new york never gave me that. i'm hoping they can start reversing this very bad trend. maria: you make a really important point. once that group started throwing things in the media and yahoo picked it up and others picked
it up, your name was out there. you started getting death threats. you told the doj, look, i'm getting death threats. >> yes. that was one of the main things. the in march of 2017, that's the main thing -- the primary thing i wanted from the fbi. i had around 10 meetings or five meetings at over 10 hours with the fbi and i was asking for their help. instead of helping me, there was more criminal leaks into april, the following month of 2017. maria: what an ordeal this has been for you, carter. >> it's been an ordeal for our country. maria: tell me how this impacted your life. you go to try to work with the trump campaign. you get wiretapped, surveilled, you're never charged with anything. how has it impacted you. >> i look from the big picture perspective, maria. i look at the damage it's done to president trump, his administration. maria: what about you, you're walking around anonymously, you're afraid of who is
following you. there's been an impact to you personally, hasn't there? >> yes, absolutely, but first and foremost, we need to fix this disaster in our judicial system and the doj and i think u.s. attorney general barr has started taking very important initial steps since taking office in february of this year and i think things are heading in a positive direction. maria: and john durham's investigation is a criminal investigation. we're waiting for the michael horowitz report, the ig report coming out we understand december 9th. what should our viewers understand about the ig report, the forth coming ig report, what do you think it's going to tell everybody. >> unfortunately, maria, i was never given any opportunity to testify or get interviewed by anyone. maria: you never spoke to michael horowitz. >> i never spoke to him or any member of his team. they allegedly flew over the london to spent time with the dnc consultant, christopher
steele, he had his say. maria: chris tosser steele is the author of the dose usmca. >> on--dossier. >> one of the authors of the dossier. as some of the investigative journalists have started to find there's a lot more people. maria: john solomon reported that as well wha well. what do you think we're going to learn. we understand this is the framing of donald trump and his team. how are they going to approve that in the ig report? what do you think is going to be most damning from your standpoint? >> i wish i could tell you. unfortunately, according to the privacy act of 1974, if there's a system of records about someone, they should be allowed to review and provide comments and ask for edits to it. i was never given that chance. so it's hard to say. but i think this is one step in a very long process. i'm so appreciative that senate judiciary chairman lindsey graham and his committee are
going to take -- maria: michael horowitz on december 11th. so we've got the daily news here and the title is shame on gop sham. this is russia expert slamming republican fiction to defend trump as dems rest impeachment case. what do you know about fiona hill and tell me about her relationship as you know them to the players in the russia framing. the collusion framing. >> i've been a russia scholar for many decades now. i only met her once. she's from england originally and i met her at a think tank in london once a decade and-a-half ago. maria: she also knows christopher steele. >> yes. another brit, someone who is from the u.k. who -- and they, you know, she's from the brookings institution and there's been a lot of involvement. we keep learning more and more
about brookings' involvement and strobe talbot who i also have spent some time with in the past, he's someone who has -- maria: connect the dots, the ukraine hearings to the russia collusion investigation, what should we know about the connection between the two? >> to me, it's the exact same thing, where congressman nunes and his team, congressman jordan, congressman ratcliffe, they're trying to tell the other side of the story. maria: right. >> they've never been allowed to -- maria: what is the other side of the story? >> i think it's the same thing, just like then chairman nunes did with the nunes memo and what the house intelligence committee's very deep investigations, they unveiled all of this wrong-doing by the dnc, their consultants and their lawyers and unfortunately there's been a big coverup and nothing has been fully disclosed as of yet. that is exactly what's happening once again as a way of damaging president trump in this schiff
show. maria: we will leave it there. you've got a big court date ahead. anything you want to leave us with ahead of this court appearance that you're going downtown right now? >> well, i just thank you, maria and your team at fox because you have exposed the truth. when all of these other media organizations have been trying to throw out this fake dnc, democrat propaganda and lies, you and a handful of others have really done amazing work. so it's literally been a life saver mf than. maria: thank you so much. we will be watching the developments. carter page joining us. we'll be right back. tays local. tays local. shop small and watch it add up. small business saturday by american express is november 30th.

tell us about niche, niche.com, what do you do and want to get your take on what the government's releasing. >> sure. we are the largest site in the united states for choosing k-12 schools and colleges. we have every school on our site, all 140,000k-12 schools and colleges. including community colleges, graduate schools and colleges. we've got them all on our site. we have the hard day taxer rankings, statistics, facts and outcome and user generated content from students as well, over 100 million reviews and opinions. the last year we had 100 million visits on our site. we're the largest site in the united states for traffic and content on schools in the couple tri. maria: you can get a sense of where to get the best bang for your buck in terms of schools. >> value is i'd credible -- incredibly important for families today. >> speaking to value, maybe that relates to the data from the government. one thing that is
surprising, the parents when you look at colleges is all the private schools tend to be about the same price and all the public schools toned be about the same price regardless of how competitive, where they're located. it seems kind of bizarre. is this going to start to drive a little more, i don't know, selective shopping or aaggressive shopping and search for bargains? >> i think the new data that came out this week is really trying to help inform families on everything related to which programs and which schools are ultimately going to drive the best value. what we do really particularly well is digest all this great raw data that's out there and make it easier for the parents and families to process that. we're completely in favor of making it as transparent as possible. we know these are really big decisions, right now in the country there's a trillion dollars of student debt out there and 70 million students are in the u.s. education system today. education is a huge issue right now and we're completely in
favor of tran transparency. >> luke, i'm curious, are you seeing more migration for the kids now to choose majors with what i will call skills majors? as an example, my younger daughter was an undergraduate media major, found nothing. then had to go back, get her master's in cyber security, the jobs are -- there's a wealth of jobs out there as you might assume. >> we just surveyed 16,000 high school seniors trying to get the pulse of what gen z is really looking for. there's two things that really came clear number one was, they're hyper concerned on value. they're worried about debt and they want to make sure they can get great paying jobs when they graduate. they want really great coverage on reviews and transparency. what it's really like. again, whether you're buying a vacuum cleaner or amazon, you read those reviews. we have all the reviews and they trust one another. that's what gen z is looking for. they're concerned about the
value, making sure they can get a job after they graduate. they want to know what it's really like. those are the two big things this generation is thinking about. dagen: this website is the one i mentioned yesterday and final thoughts, college score card.ed.gov, it's run by the government. doesn't just help you compare colleges versus the cost and how much you would make, how much debt you go into and how much you would make coming out in your first year, it helps you compare majors. that's what is fascinating. like if you compare what you make as a biology major graduating from brown university,s that's $30,500 in the first year, that's $12,400 less than a history major makes. >> how would you do if you went to wake forest? dagen: i wouldn't go to wake and i wouldn't pay for art history. wake forest is a $75,000 a year school. i would be forced to major in something there where i could get out and make money. maria: this is valuable info. the figures show that most
programs graduates typically earn more in the first year than what they borrowed in total and the website is. dagen: collegescorecard.ed.gov. maria: great to have you. we'll be right back. stay with us. no commission. delivery drones, or the latest phones. no commission. no matter what you trade, at fidelity you'll pay no commission for online u.s. equity trades. at fidelity you'll pay no commission (shaq) (chime) magenta? i hate cartridges! not magenta! not magenta. i'm not going back to the store. magenta! cartridges are so...

comroerl under krfl investigation accused of falsifying documents before release of inspector general report i spoke with former foreign policy adviser carter page. >> we are going to bring you, a portion of that coming up but, you know, we are waiting for the inspector general report, and this is going to be damning, john ratcliffe congressman ratcliffe told me at least 500 page you don't need 500 pages to say gi cia did cid did everything right.
>> this is the core question how do you get authority from the fisa court, based on information that is essentially opposition research from a political campaign targeting a rival, and you wonder does fisa court have too much power? are judges not doing their job? or was the judge misled about the quality of that evidence justifying the warrant? this seems to go to the heart of that question if you are talking about a lawyer, basically falsifying "washington post" report, the lawyer allegedly falsifying a -- a assertion that they had the evidence to back up this warrant. maria: right and he carter page has been a russian scholar for years studied on russia so he was low hanginging fruit for somebody wants to pin you russia collusion on donald trump, and i think it is important to
note that while he was surveilled for a year, there was never any charges brought against him here is what he just told me. >> maria my reaction this is more of the same, they have been falsifying documents, and providing false testimony if the court of law, in court of courts of law for years now. just last year, in my one case, you know on january 30th 2018, the southern district of new york put a -- a falsely pleading misleading the court, about abuse of process in the fisa abuse, then two days later chairman then chairman devin nunes house intelligence totally approved thproved them we've known these are wrong a long time the fake news democrats keep pushing this false narrative. >> this is an american citizen you a russian scholar joined the trump campaign, and got
surveilled as a result. and then when they leaked his name to the media he got death threats had real impact to incredible wronged i would say anybody should be trained by what took place in 2016. dagen: when opposition research paid for one candidate to spy affiliated into intelligence world fbi then used to spy, on -- official in tp opponent's campaign it is just mind-boggling. maria: it is. dagen: that more people are not outraged by it also with inspector general report, i expect it out december 9th, we are going to find out in that report why john durham's investigation within the justice department and into predicate or evidentiary base of the investigation into trump campaign if there is anything there. the reason that probe by
durham expanded why he now has more resources apparently because of information turned up by the inspector general. >> yeah. dagen: no so it is going to open a lot of windows clear up issues about what john durham is looking at. >> the fact a criminal investigation tells you that, they are suspecting there was criminal wrongdoing here trump campaign people entrapped what gets me they used tools this country uses on terrorists against donald trump to stop him from becoming president. >> andy mccarthy keeps pushing says if these tools are abused at some point american people will be so outraged they demand those tools how we surveil terrorists will be taken away from law enforcement at the end of the day, makes this nation less safe. maria: o i brought up stephan hopper a known informant of
western intelligence he was paid more than a million dollars, over a year's period, he was paid he apparently to do a report on china and then do another report on russia nobody gets paid a million dollars to do reports like that in fact he was being paid to be to be an informant run into people like carter page -- >> one of the questions i think could you expect durham to pursue is carter page is obviously a peripheral mep of trump team why was candidate not notified if they believed that russians were seek to go influence campaign through this pathway why did you not tell the candidate. >> that is right. >> now, if you really are targeting the candidate, but not saying that he is the target of the investigation, i think they are also going to say well what -- what -- what basis did you have to think that he carter page was donald
trump's this is in the theory hypothetical pipeline to the kremlin, so i think those are all questions that we hope will be answered. maria: we are going to watch with a happens to john brennan jim comey, andrew mccabe pooest strzok anti-trump tweets, we will have more december 9 expectings fox business alert on hong kong president is expected to sign a bill supporting human rights in hong kong, tensions soaring ahead of the election jonathan hunt in who hong kong with that angle a hot-button issue chinese do not want the president to sign this into law. reporter: absolutely they do not the protesters are still waiting and hoping that they will see that presidentalt signature on human rights democracy act sometime today, all week, on the campus of the hong kong polytechnic

convinced a poll shows sport waning 43% supporting it down from last month independently voters supported 34% opposed to 39% last month former connecticut senator united against nuclear iran chairman former vice president candidate joe leib lieberman your reaction to hearings where you think this impeachment situation is going. >> yeah, you know, i view this from unique perspective because, as a member of the senate 1998-1999 i went through impeachment of president clinton, and we held a trial, in the senate in which he was acquitted. pretty obvious that the house particularly after the testimony they got last couple weeks will impeach president trump. it will be unfortunately but almost totally a partisan vote but probably exactly what the
framers thought when they put impeachment clause in, and then, by any rationale prediction barring some shocking new revelation, the senate will acquit, president trump they will not convict him i want to say with regard to numbers you put up, when -- the public opinion matters here you know during the clinton impeachment, i went back and spent a lot of time looking at the constitutional history. the founders intended impeachment to be used rarely, because the election the power of people in our democracy to choose their leaders was to be the ultimate test of authority, and you only wanted congress intervening in between elections when basically they felt that a president was no longer fit to lead the country so it is a high standard only the fourth time in our history but public opinion matters. in that way. maria: practicable speaking
senator if president trump gets impeached in the house acquitted in senate, what does that i mean he goes on, and he continues being president and then has election next year? >> absolutely. exactly what happens, it is up to the public the citizenry to decide whether anything that came out during the impeachment process about affects their vote. but really in a way, that is the way the founders of our country intended that ultimately this is all about elections. >> incredible out there. >> it is. >> another debate this week former president obama speaking to donors in california this week saying that democrats need to quote chill out unquote about the 2020 field and should instead focus on beating president trump obama making comments about state of the democratic party warning about moving too far to the left we have spoken about this in the past with ally has this party moved so far to the left.
>> the good news is president obama said what he did, a lot of people, saw him, as a liberal democrat probably is a liberal democrat but more of a center left democrat kind of reformer, than what i might call some of the revolutionaries running in a democratic primary would change last our system, i thought it was fascinating president obama said, why would our party some candidates want to take away, from people that don't have much the little they have. and i assumed he is talking about health care. >> medicare for all. >> eliminating 180 million -- >> they got from their employer. so why is this happening? i don't know. listen, this is part of the problem of politics in both parties in our country. want the right and republican party left and democratic party has disimportant important shun ate news fired up come out center right
center left republicans, and democrats, and independents have power, in my opinion a majority to electric somebody who will actually work with the other party. maria: like bill clinton did. >> like clirn and gingrich, reagan tip o'neill. >> have it is hard to think anything gets done with hatred between two i got to get to i was china as well prime minister benjamin netanyahu indicted on corruption charges yesterday in a deadlocked political system. your reaction. >> it is serious. you know i know prime minister netanyahu for a long time since he was the second in charge of the israeli embassy in washington, early 80s. but he is a fighter. so he will fight on, and immediate question is what happens within his political party, called the qud will
there be a move to remove him as lead of the party therefore candidate for prime minister in the elections that will now happen sometime next year. i think probably strong enough to resist that, so it is going to be a time of tumult in israeli politics, budgets frozen, et cetera, one thing won't affect because there is still a consistence across all parties there is their work on national security. stopping iran from -- and proxies from attacking, keeping the country secure so that iran wants to wipe ilz off haveman we have heard that umpteen times protesters there. >> secretary of state pompeo asking iranians to send u.s. videos documenting the regime crackdown on protesters, mike pompeo, basically saying, we are watching you we want to see these videos, what do you think where that is going. >> i think secretary pompeo
and trump administration have been really superb on iran, as the breaking out of the bad nuclear agreement by the administration, the imposing of tough economic sanctions on iran is exactly why there is so much unrest, in iran there is also a unrest because people feel suppressed they don't have economic opportunities they don't have freedom. i believe from sources i have that a lot of people who are protesting in streets just asking for lower gas prices, were killed by the government, in iran, over the last week. so i think we've got to keep economic pressure on i hope that the europeans will join america maximum pressure economic campaign eventually the mullahs who run iran have to decide come back sign a better nuclear agreement, or they are going to face an up

conflict with u.s. i don't believe president trump doeset president trump i think is going after tariffs to try to balance our relationship not good for the american economy either. maria: national security risks when you look at huawei and their equipment, backdoor going back to chinese go of the. >> yeah there are real worries within our intelligence community about that. if the chinese telecom companies want to do business in the united states they really have to find a way to assure us, that when we buy their products we are not essentially applying ourselves into dependence on them when will eventually compromise our security, we can do that, if they cooperate. >> okay. >> so this should be a win-win. i believe we are actually going to work this out and tariffs issue going down a little bit, and we are going to continue to negotiate because it is not in the interests of president xi president trump china or the u.s. for this to blow up into

lacking discipline governance public markets introduced larnl companies not necessarily valued right in private markets an issue issue, importantly the most important when we talk about companies growing in private sector says for so long every day investor is missing out on that, so that -- to bifurcation of wealth that we are seeing the things that we need to recognize as problems so we can address it. >>. >> o not would be company built i think wework encapsulated messages as well. >> valuation had gotten to 47 billion dollars, softbank valuing. >> what is that based object. maria: exactly. >> down to 8 billion i think that -- shined a lighted on valuations in the private market. >> yes, that is important not about one company about a trend that we've been seeing you and i started on new york stock exchange, 25 years ago the markets very different back then, we think about what companies deriving companies to the public markets, and it was to raise money that changed so because they are
raising money in private markets the public markets are coming to them much later in their life cycle because of changes in regulation, because of changes in access to private money a combination of drivers but the result is concerning, so that is what i am the message i am trying to get out there, is that when a company brings the -- when ceo brings company public it is sharing that growth and success, with all investors, and that is critical, not a capitalist -- we know this -- we strongly in capitalism the engine, that has powered the growth of this nation, we just need to give it a tinyup so tune-up. >> you spoke about you and i on the floor 25 years ago amazing how things changes when i got down to the floor one viewers asked me about it they're 5 rooms with people running around today you've got one room, under what, 500 people. >> technology likewise to us stay -- like in the industry use technology to more effectively the way we changed

sophisticated want clitdz then they go public i would love to see our main street investors get in earlier at those companies are growing. >> the earlier you get in the more upside you have. >> absolutely, i will tell a story one of the reasons why i decided to write the op-ed i left work got in taxi driver asked where i worked i said new york stock exchange he said you work for ice? a apparent company stock exchange he knew ice said i love ice own 14,000 shares i said you own 14,000 shares of ice he said you got in my cab i bought a long time ago split five for one continued to grow this story impacted his life, and he was sharing that story. maria: should we look -- a story of shoeshine boy knew everything the market crashed? average investor is so -- attuned to things i think great story. >> but that happened, ice from
