exactly what you are talking about. [closing bell rings] sam, thank you for your ideas. sam dunlap. another all-time record close for the nasdaq and the s&p too. that will do it for "the claman countdown." melissa: new highs on wall street. all three major averages ending the day in the green. the dow up 14 points. i'm melissa francis it is a good day. connell: very good day. up 115 as we settle in. i'm connell mcshane. this is "after the bell." for the s&p, it is a record close and third straight record close for the nasdaq, 16th of the year. nasdaq up 84 points. so that 16 record closes for the year is more than half the number of record highs all last year for the nasdaq. it is what, is it february something. february 19th my watch says. we'll have more on market
4:01 pm
movers. here is what is new at this hour. mingling with the titans of silicon valley, oracle billionaire larry ellison is hosting a fun raiser for president trump on the west coast before the president heads to arizona where he will have a campaign rally tonight. we're live on the scene. plus billionaires debut. mike bloomberg getting set to make his first appearance on the debate stage as his democratic rivals get is set to attack him. the growing homeless crisis in the state of california. how one city there is addressing the problem as dozens of people are literally setting up camp in rvs along a major highway. melissa: that is a pricey spot. hillary vaughn is live in rancho mirage, california. blake burman at white house. jackie deangelis on the floor of the new york stock exchange. hillary, let's start with you. reporter: melissa, this is not the first time oracle founder larry ellison hosted a sitting
4:02 pm
president at his exclusive invite only golf club, porcupine creek this is the first time a president sparked multiple employees of his to rebel. over 5,000 employees signed a petition to stop the fund-raiser with trump from happening. several employees pledged to sign off, log off and walk out of work today at noon in protest. today's fund-raiser comes at at important moment for ellison. his company is challenging amazon in court over the 10 billion-dollar cloud computing pentagon project they did not get called jedi. ellison will get important face time with the president. he did today. along with high dollar donors at the fund-raiser. tickets to attend the event that wrapped up moments ago started at $100,000. that got attendees here tee time with the president as well as a photo. a quarter of a million dollars got them some exclusive time with the president at a roundtable event that happened
4:03 pm
this afternoon. today's event is really a bold move for ellison because he is sandwiched right in silicon valley where a lot of the tech giant there have been triggered by a lot of trump's policies but him hosting a fund-raiser today stands in stark contrast to that. melissa. melissa: i would love to know how many people spend 100,000-dollars for photos. not their names. we know what can happen to people that support the president i would love to know a headcount. we'll know later, right? we'll check it out. reporter: we saw a lot of buses of attend east come up here. we don't have exact number but self buses of attendees came up the driveway. melissa: we appreciate that. connell: nicole nikpour, is. melissa: she probably knows. connell: do you know how many people pay 100 grand for a picture? that is a big number even for a president i would think? >> i do know that on saturday, palm peach had one. i was lucky enough to attend it. not because i paid $250,000 a
4:04 pm
person and my donor did. invited me as a guest. it was a complete, complete sellout. to my right was bernie marcus. to my left was pepe van hule. so own. so on. connell: look at you. that is how you roll, we know that, in this fund-raising roll. the president has been rolling in the money, right? the whole idea as hillary reports silicon valley in this case, tech workers some sort of revolt among employees doesn't seem to be slowing him down in terms of the dollars he brings in. is it or is that something that could pose a challenge raising money for the rest of the year? >> no. and i think that larry ellison, i knew about this fund-raiser that larry ellison was doing a couple weeks ago because i got a call from one of my donors was approached to give $100,000 and then again on the 250 for an even more exclusive meeting with larry ellison and donald trump. so i knew it would be a hit and i knew it would be very good and larry ellison is a magnet to
4:05 pm
draw the 100,000-dollar tickets because larry ellison while he gives some checks, he doesn't make a lot of appearances politically. i think he did one a long time ago for marco rubio, when marco rubio ran for president with those 16 contenders. >> right. >> i really think it is very sad the fact that his employees are not letting him have the freedom to support and do what he wants politically because is personal choice. you would always think the left supports personal choices. i had a donor in washington state, very big billionaire in seattle that actually co-host ad fund-raiser and got threatened that people would pull out of their leases they had signed since he owned the building. it gets really nasty. connell: is that this year? >> when he was the nominee against hillary clinton. connell: i was asking, that kind of thing happens more and more the way things are these days? >> well, yeah.
4:06 pm
they're threatening the donor. usually they, they would threaten someone running against you or you know something, this and that, but threatening on one it is your free choice to support whether you give one dollar or $100,000 to any candidate you feel you personally like, it is our freedom to vote for who we want. connell: bottom line this, is not slowing down the president? >> no. connell: money is not an issue at all? >> money is not an issue, but look, raising money, as a national fun raiser i think you will see more of these types of big ticket, 250,000-dollar a plate deals and i'll tell you why. if we're going to look at someone like bloomberg that may be, he has a good shot maybe getting the nomination on the d side, you will need a lot of money. what better way to do it, then to open up a roundtable with some billionaires and charge a $250,000. that is really not a big price to pay to get face time with the
4:07 pm
president, a small group and face time with many, many billionaires that could provide a good business contact for you. connell: bloomberg, we should probably have that conversation tomorrow. we'll see what happens tonight. good to see you as always, noelle nick pour with us. thank you very much, melissa. melissa: new records on wall street. let's go to jackie deangelis at the new york stock exchange with more. jackie. reporter: good afternoon to you. you mentioned the s&p 500 and nasdaq hitting new records today. for record watchers out there that was nasdaq third consecutive record close although yesterday was point 1/2. today a little stronger in terms of gains. also the 16th record close for the nasdaq in 2020. pretty impressive. meantime i want to draw your attention to tesla's stock. we've been talking about it all day, jumping over $900 a share there, almost 7% gain on the day. this is a biggest gain in fact in two weeks. it is tripled in the last 12 months. there has been some tesla fever out there, if you will. piper sandler raising its price
4:08 pm
target to 928 from 729. not that far away. piper may have to think about raising it a little bit more. i want to end on the housing stocks today because it was positive sentiment in housing that helped boost the market a little bit. building permits near a 13-year high. housing starts falling less than expected. you can see green across the board down there. hovnanian gaining almost, or more than 9%. the others following in suit. beazer seeing almost a 6% gain as well. guys. back over to you. >> jackie, thank you. connell: watch out for huawei. president trump's top diplomat on cyber urging european countries to ban huawei equipment in their buildout of 5g infrastructure this comes as the chief of staff to president trump, mick mulvaney is meeting with boris johnson's chief special advisor talking about the chinese company. blake burman at the white house to put it all together for us. blake? reporter: trump administration continues to make its case all across the globe that countries
4:09 pm
should not link up with huawei when it comes to potentially building out their 5g infrastructure. one latest example is coming today in london as the president's chief of staff mick mulvaney met with his counterpart today. as you know boris johnson's government would allow huawei to buildout some of its 5g facilities. the white house would not say if mulvaney would make any demands instead they might need to turn back the clock when communicating down the line with the uk. listen here. >> we're cured with the secure risks involved but as we also said, because we have such a good relationship we'll make it work some way whether with a carrier pigeon or some other manner. reporter: that is a line the administration is using. meantime the state department top cyber expert robert stray letters made his anti-huawei pitch in portugal.
4:10 pm
strayer made the case western communications giants can deliver the same technology as huawei but be able to do so, connell, without the security risks attached. connell: we'll keep watching it. thank you, blake burman at the white house. melissa: a high-stakes debut, that is for sure. mike bloomberg feeling the heat from his democratic rivals as the former mayor prepares to hit the debate stage for the first time. critics say it is make-or-break for the 2020 candidate. are they right? we're live from nevada with the latest next. connell: amazon under pressure. a high-profile case could leave the company liable for products sold on the third party site. that is later in the hour. melissa: breaking down the highest paid jobs in the u.s. and you can do to make the cut. ♪.

connell: democratic candidates preparing for the navy debate but what makes this showdown different is the mayor of new york. mike bloomberg making his first appearance. jacqui heinrich out in las vegas with a preview for us. reporter: connell, up until now former mayor mike bloomberg has
4:15 pm
been able to campaign from largely behind the curtain, talking to voters with massive ad buys, and responding criticism from the rivals without pressure after live audience but all that will change tonight. we have a glimpse how his rivals might take himtor elizabeth ward him an egomaniac billionaire. he qualified for the debate after spending $400 million of his own money campaigning. the dnc removed donor criteria. bloomberg who is self-funded. bloom wear will have to answer about his policies when he was mayor and old audio clips. in one 2016 clip, racially stair typedded murders and murder victims and defending the "stop-and-frisk" policy. defending another clip in 2011 that he said blacks and latinos don't know how to behave in the work place. he refers to transgender people as he, she or it.
4:16 pm
bloomberg will have to defend himself and respond tonight. former vice president joe biden who is trying to resuscitate his campaign after a dismal showing in iowa and new hampshire, taking a different line of attack against bloomberg. >> basically been a republican his whole life. the fact of the matter is he -- [inaudible]. reporter: tonight will be critical for both warren and for biden who didn't meet the threshold for delegates in the new hampshire primary. it could also provide support for amy klobuchar who did well after the good debate performance in new hampshire. connell: it will be interesting. jacqui heinrich in las vegas. melissa: get ready, america, the former mayor, full of charisma is about to take debate stage by storm. here is a quick preview. >> together with brooklyn bridge park and governors island another amazing addition to a harbor we brought roaring back to life. melissa: roaring back to life. he is riveting.
4:17 pm
here is now joe concha, "the hill" columnist. we could have played a lot more but we didn't want our entire audience to leave. we tried to give you a snippet of mike bloomberg. that was probably the most riveting snippet to we could come up with. this is not had his forte. how do you think he will do tonight? >> one word comes to mind, melissa. monotone. seems like the same bar of music. to be a presidential candidate you have to have great oratory skills. go back to reagan, clinton. george w. bush more folk sy charming, obama, trump, distinctive, know how to engage an audience. bloomberg is pretty much the exact opposite of that. he is the elitist many describe him to be but he sounds like he is. between that and what he has said in terms of the clips that have been unearthed throughout the last week, that is going to be the problem because he is going to be the target absolutely. i don't care if bernie sanders is at the top of the polls.
4:18 pm
it is hard to hit him at this point. you know exactly where he stands. bloomberg is the new guy. they want to respond to him right away. look at all the people insulted in clips. blacks, latinos, women, farmers, seniors, what is next? puppies and cast of frozen? no one to insult. melissa: unicorns? we have no idea. if you look at, he is surging in the polls at this point. >> yes. melissa: in about third according to the latest "abc news/washington post poll." he has surpassed warren and buttigieg. he is nipping at biden's heels there but that is basically on the back of dollars. whether people he pays his social media army to go out there, whoever is manning his twitter account because that person has a tremendous sense of humor and mike bloomberg does not. the person writing for him on twitter is very funny but that is not authentic. that is not him doing it.
4:19 pm
he bought all this ad time. my point his vice has been very controlled an specific for the right audience. it is a different voice on twitter than it is in his ads. it is perfectly pitched for who he is hitting. so that's, had him surge in the polls. now for the first time tonight the country really, for the first time meets the real mike bloomberg. does he have anywhere to go but down? >> expectations are through the roof. it has been homogenized. perfectly produced in terms of $400 million he bought at this point, 10 times more than bernie sanders and bernie is the second biggest spender on the democratic side. if you comb bind all the democratic candidates they haven't spent as much as michael bloomberg has. he announced in november. they have been running basically since last january. so that is pretty impressive. in the end he hasn't been tested now, has he, melissa? melissa: no. >> has not done one major interview with a news outlet,
4:20 pm
not taken any questions, has not debated over a decade. he has people gunning for him. you ever see "rocky iv," when apollo creed fought ivan drawing go? that is rhetorical version when it is done. melissa: this is either the smart presidential campaign of all time where he skipped, did none of retail politics where you go, eat the pie, do all those kind of things. the other people who did that, some of them surged and faltered. they look at him. you're a genius, only put forward this impenetrable facade up front to this point. it is either genius if he excels from here, hits out out of park or disaster because everybody has the perfect expectations. he goes out tonight, doesn't live up to what people thought he might be. which do you think it will be? >> i think it will be the latter. i don't think he can live up to the expectations been portrayed to this point. he is not looking to be the exciting candidate. he is looking to the alternative
4:21 pm
to president trump he is calm, cool, collective, successfully run a billion dollar business. successful three-term mayor of new york. he wants to be the mature pragmatist. the question is attacks from the woke party, from elizabeth warrens and tom steyers who everybody forgotten is also a billionaire, can he handle that? he has experience but never been on a stage like this. melissa: he could have been in a warehouse, joe, practicing rehearse having things thrown at him. maybe he will come out like a superhuman robot and crush it all. i don't know. >> but he doesn't come across as authentic, right? he doesn't come across as authentic that is the problem. if he does a zinger it will seem rehearsed. >> joe, thank you, appreciate it. >> thank you. connell: speaking of interesting, another royal mishap in the news. how the queen is laying down the law. prince harry and meghan markle

4:28 pm
obviously concerns about open fire, cooking, still in the area, offer recovering from the woolsey fire. they are being built from that. they are looking to create a 24 hour safe parking zone not along a high bay. they're looking to get more people into the system. look at housing costs here, just as rent is up by about 50% over the past decade. wages are not keeping pace. this is very high cost area talking about malibu or anywhere alongside the coast. they're offering lower cost vouchers for homes, subsidized housing. the problem, not a lot of takers. that is more inland. people want to be near the coast. back to you. >> right, if you can live for free on the waterfront in an area where it costs 10 of millions of dollars to live, why not? robert, thank you. connell: crazy story. taking extra precaution. uber launching a new feature t lets riders report safety issues in real time. so this is called on trip

♪ to a court case could have impact on how amazon runs its business. judges on third circuit court of appeal in philadelphia. judges doing a case after a woman was blinded in one eye, says a faulty dog collar on amazon allegedly broke. she was out walking her dog. the collar broke, hit her in the face. now she says she is blind in one eye. now the question here is whether amazon's legally responsible for the damages caused by the goods sold in the third party marketplace. judge will talk to us about it. judge andrew napolitano, fox news senior judicial analyst joins us. host of "the liberty file" on "fox nation." usually, i believe amazon does pretty well in these types of cases. are you liable for selling something someone else made but interesting how the three judges initially ruled against amazon. what do you know about the case? >> the injuries are catastrophic but the issue here is not how to
4:35 pm
compensate but who should compensate her. connell: right. >> she alleges a design defect in this retractible dog leash. if it is a design defect, meaning it was designed wrong or manufactured improperly, amazon did not design it or manufacture it. connell: they claim they can't find the company who did. does that matter? >> yes. as everyone knows, if you buy something from amazon, sometimes amazon is a broker. they have third party sellers. they never touch the product. comes directly from the third party manufacturer/seller to the consumer who purchases it. that is what happened here. so in the trial court, a federal district court in pittsburgh, threw the case out, how could amazon be liable, they never touched it? she appealed to the third circuit. a three-judge panel ruled 2-1 in her favor which would radically change the law if amazon is liable for injuries caused by
4:36 pm
its third party sales persons. connell: big-time precedent. amazon has a lot riding. >> it is enormous. amazon asked the full circuit, full 15 judges, they will hear it today. after the full 15 judges are going to hear the three judges, that is often a hint they go the other way. connell: i thought one of their reasons they cited that, was that the company made the leash, they couldn't find the company. so amazon would be the only party that is kind of available to be sued. any other logic? >> no. across the delaware river in new jersey, which is the most consumer and plaintiff-friendly state in the union, that is the law. it is not the law, it is not law in pennsylvania but federal judges attempted to make it the law. if that happens, everything you
4:37 pm
buy on amazon will go up because of the cost to insure these products. connell: sounds like you think it is unlikely it will happen? >> i do. if this change is going to come about, it will have to come about about legislation or by congress or various stay legislatures. a change of this magnitude, you know, this enormous financial magnitude, should not be made in my view, by life tenured black robed judges it should be made by people responsible to voters. connell: interesting it got this far. amazon has 58% of its business tied up with third party selling. thank you, judge. we'll follow it. melissa: bloomberg then and now. when mike bloomberg took office in mayor of new york city in 2002 he took a stand in his inaugural address, declaring we can't drive people and businesses out of new york. we cannot raise taxes. we will find another way. famous last words. took him less than a year to break the pledge. jacking property taxes, they were the city's income tax for
4:38 pm
high income households. oddly the billionaire mayor said this about wealth taxes. it is the best strategy to drive out the 1% of people that pay roughly 50% of the taxes calli could think of. now that he is running for president, he is proposing 5 trillion in new taxes. is your head spinning? i know mine is. probably art laffer as well. he is former economic advisor for president reagan and chairman of laffer associates. my lord, can you sort through what mike bloomberg actually believes? he swears he will not raise taxes. he raises them. then he says it is dumb, i can't do it. maybe he is won't do it now because he is saying he would when he becomes president? how do you sort through that? >> what people won't do to get in public office. he was a good mayor of new york. he did a lot of things that were
4:39 pm
right. now he denounces many of those today. the truth of the matter i like to see what his tax returns look like in march. he promises to release his tax returns. i wonder if he denise all the takes favors he used but now won't let anyone use in the future. it is hypocritical in the future, liz. those taxes will do nothing but make things worse. >> talk about he was a good mayor of new york city. i hear that around the city. it wouldn't be bad if he ran because he was a good mayor. if you comb through thinks legacy, the thing he is best known for is rezoning which basically means he rezoned about 40% of new york city to either bring businesses into certain areas or to incent a certain type of housing to be built and how did he achieve this magic transformation of new york city especially after 9/11? through tax breaks. that was his main tool. if you look at it he used taxes, very precisely and cleverly to
4:40 pm
get things like goldman sachs, got a huge tax incentive to move their headquarters downtown next to the freedom tower where the world trade center had gone down because at that time people were like, i don't know. i don't want to build down there. nobody is could going to come. this, that, other thing. you make yourself a target. he knew that tax incentives are the way to get people to do that. he is denouncing that sort of thing now. so do you believe that he will govern the way he did in new york or do you believe his promises now that kind of tax play is evil? >> what i hear from him, i don't really know him well, oar anything, melissa, what he is saying now, what he is proposing now, repeal of president trump's tax bill which really was wonderful and stimulated economy. some spending programs he is planning on asking, 5% surcharge on income taxes all this type of stuff i think 5 trillion you said in new taxes? melissa: yeah. >> you can't tax an economy into
4:41 pm
prosperity. if he were to win i think the market would crash and i think economy would come tumbling down after it. i think he is should stick to what he is good at which is making money, telling people how they can do it themselves rather than trying to see how we can tax an economy into prosperity which just doesn't happen. now he may be better than bernie and elizabeth warren but this is not a good way to go. it is not a right thing for america. we really need prosperity. we need to pull minorities and disenfranchised back into the labor force and make all of them who doesn't have the opportunities some of us had making them into productive, prosperous members of our society rather than always on welfare. it is really good thing to get economic growth which trump is doing. melissa: i'm not sure the market would crash right away. i think all of the people on wall street think he is their friend, mike bloomberg, that he would help business the way he did here in new york but if he made good on these promises, making on the trail, yes, it would definitely undermined the
4:42 pm

4:48 pm
>> you can't take away from the queen. she is the queen mum. she knows how to make things happen. this is interesting. i was aware of this, but they can't talk about their life in the royal family once they leave the royal family. melissa: wow. >> that would be another thing you would maybe want to have prince harry and meghan markle on a show for example, harry, what was it like, christmas in buckingham palace, tell us what that is like? >> he can't talk about that. that is family nda. melissa: i've been following the story pretty closely. speaking of unusual events, scientists working own a new technique to help spot aliens. they plan to develop a system that will piggyback on super antennas in mexico known as very large arrays or vlas, which scan the skies for tech know signatures which are a key indicator of possible extraterrestrial existence. what do you think of this, bret? >> i love this. remember the seti screensaver in

the, search for extraterrestrial intelligence, that is what seti stands for. they will do this, not do it by way the our screen savers. it is basically artificial intelligence that will have the ability to look at vast apartments of data very quickly and look for thesingtures of extraterrestrial life. melissa: artificial intelligence. it looks for real intelligence. >> that is where we are as a society. this is kind of interesting, what they're looking for, the obvious stuff, is there oxygen own the planet? is it a planet in the goldilocks zone, that is share words, too cold, not too hot. is there stuff floating around the other planet? are there satellites in space that are not other planets? we have a moon and space station and thousands of gps satellites somebody might see. they are able to etech laser emissions from the planet. other radio signals that come out that would suggest people are there.
