6:05 am
of coronavirus cases, shanghai reported significant gains, joining me right now is potomic wealth adviser mike avalon and dagen mcdowell, wall street journal writer jon hilsenrath and cornerstone macros michael, great to see everyone this morning. thank you so much for being here. mark, let me kick this off with you, yesterday the big rally as we got the word from the chinese communist party that we are supposed to have a bull market, retail investors started opening accounts in china and that led a whole global rally, what's your take on what took place. >> that's the involvement that we've had for close to 13 years. investors respond favorably and no reason for them not to when you have the dual impact of monetary and fiscal policy really urging stocks higher. when the fed and other central
6:06 am
banks step in, they are huge engines behind an economy or global economies at this point and it's also taking away other alternative investment choices. where are investors supposed to go when the ten-year hoovering half of 1%, which is just below inflation, that might be created some frost in names in short run but until the fed gets some discipline here, until even the u.s. government, congress stops these relief efforts which are needed, of course, but until we see an end to that we don't see stocks falling through the floor. maria: right. well, that's one way to look at it, the chinese communist party creating more stimulus like the fed has, but michael, when you're looking at china specifically, this is a different story in my view than the other stimulus that we've
6:07 am
seen. i mean, yesterday, the chinese federal government basically said, look, we want a bull market in place and that's how the economy works, it's top down, the ccp says something and the country follows suit, that's why you had millions of retail investors opening stock accounts, is that sustainable? mike: it's not sustainable but in the near term it's something that will help list sentiment as the federal government tries to stabilize the economy after the chock of covid and helps -- tries to help china from the relatively weakness around the world and like in the united states, but it's not sustainable. maria: what do you want to do here, michael? tell us how you're allocating capital right now? micheal: sure, we are not seeing signs, though, that they are necessarily helping to lift global markets and create more inflationary environment like we saw in 2016 or in 2009 when
6:08 am
money growth in china was in high double-digit territory. we don't think we are in a backdrop like that. you don't want to be fighting the governments, whether it's the fed, et cetera, and so you want to find those tailwinds -- maria: yeah, i'm really -- i'm really referring to the broader market actually and -- and, dagen, technology stocks obviously have been performing great recently. the nasdaq closing at record high again yesterday, netflix reaching all-time high. amazon at $3,000 a share yesterday. your take on what we have seen in terms of the valuations, dagen? dagen: this is just the inflation of asset prices because of unprecedented federal reserve action and action by central banks around the globe and i think that politically and economically you're seeing a
6:09 am
greater divide between the haves and have nots where there's explaining that needs to be done on prices on one hand and people who are still struggling to find enough work or get their jobs back, and i think it's only going to be exacerbated over the coming years and i don't know how much longer this can hold up. maria: jon hilsenrath bank earnings coming out soon, several banks to report second-quarter earnings next week, investors are locking at the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, you interest rates, of course, where they are, what do you want to say about the banks this morning given earnings are coming out in a week? jon: i think the banks had to have had tough quarter with loan values so that to me kind of points to disconnect that we are seeing in the market where tech stocks are going through the roof, nasdaq hitting new records every day but if you look at the
6:10 am
other markets, s&p 500, dow jones industrials, they are still down for the year and one of the things that i think investors have to puzzle out over the next weeks or months is whether they keep writing tech stocks higher or a moment coming to shift toward less, under valued broader market stocks including the bank stocks that you referenced. maria: mark, real quick, if you look at technology, banks will be reporting earnings next week and tech where is where the valuations have skyrocketed, are you buyer? mark: banks cause me a lot of -- right now. you talk to bankers on the streets we haven't seen charge-offs because of loan restructure. anything travel related is dead on books and gone to the banks and the banks have given some sort of loan forgiveness and restructuring, there hasn't been
6:11 am
a write-down. we will see the true weakness in the core economy, not the growth sector, not the tech sector we've been talking about, not the nasdaq stocks and the disconnect that jon mentioned will be exacerbated and visible but doesn't mean investors should run for the hills an pull from stocks. it just means they need to be selected and if they want to be on the value side of the trade, they need to look at things like industrial, health care, telecom, dividend yielding players that might be able to do well in a new environment, in a biden administration or trump administration, whoever wins, and broadly diversify out. but i would not overweight and back up the truck to overweight tech names and bank names. i think they are a value trap. maria: all right, we will leave it there. we will be watching the factor and seeing if it's a value trap. thank you very much, mark avalon on investing. we are getting started this morning coming up this hour,
6:12 am
join us from the state of real estate. major cities seeing decline in market, prices coming down, we are going the take a look. next hour former white house chief of staff mick mulvaney to talk about the paycheck protection program. chief operating officer of nissan will be talking about the turnaround of nissan after covid-19 and arrest of carlos goshn. glen hubert to talk about the state of the economy and the ceo and founder will talk to us and bringing democrats to the platform. all that ahead but first general jack keane to talk about the idea of banning tik tok from the united states. reopening america. phase 3, we are talking to a nail salon owner on what has changed. that's coming up. you're watching mornings with maria on fox business. ♪

6:17 am
grace, thank you very much for joining us, how was your reopening? >> our reopening was a little bit slower than expected. a lot of our old customers have been excited to come back so we've been seeing a lot of those calls and seeing them as well. maria: so do you feel that you have a lot fewer customers, capacity issue, are you handling things much differently in terms of the safety precautions like gloves and masks, et cetera, tell us what's happening with this reopening? >> so with the 50% capacity it definitely limits our income significantly and so the way that we've been doing things now is we are taking appointments only, basically trying to limit the amount of time that a customer will spend inside the store, so at the moment because we haven't fully booked up yet
6:18 am
people are still calling to see if we actually are open. we have been getting some walk-ins and only been taking them if we have the space and asking everyone to wait outside. we've been taking temperatures, cleaning the equipment, the stations regularly which has been adding time to the work. maria: are you going to be able to keep this going with 50% less capacity and the increased costs that you face now with the safety precautions? >> so with the increase costs, all of our expenses are staying the same and then also having just come out of a -- over a 3-month closure with the 50%, it's going to be an uphill battle for sure. basically we have to rely on any profits that we make in the upcoming months to kind of cover, you know, the rent that we still owe for the last 3 and
6:19 am
a half months as well, so it's going to be a struggle. maria: grace, have you had to raise prices, grace. >> grace: yes, we have had to raise prices. we have to cover the cost of, you know, ppe essentially as well as credit being lost as well. we don't want to add too much for the prices for services that customers will like to come regularly for but we have had to add a little bit on and we will see how that goes in the next coming weeks and depending on that -- to cover our losses and expenses, we would need to raise it a little more than what we have already but if we can we would just like to keep it as low as possible for our customer sake. maria: all right, we wish you the best, grace, we will be watching as your company and so many others face this task and
6:20 am
the same issues. grace hahn, best of luck. coming up banning tiktok, the u.s. taking a closer look at the fate of the chinese social media site plus what a deal patrick mahone signing the largest deal in nfl history, eye-popping number making buzz this morning. right after this it triggers a tax liability for you. and the higher the turnover the more you have to pay in taxes every year. that's why you want to own low turnover funds. the less you pay in fund fees, the less you pay... and still going for my best. even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib... ...not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'm reaching for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin.
6:21 am
eliquis is fda-approved and has both. what's next? i'm on board. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily- -and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. ask your doctor about eliquis. and if your ability to afford... ...your medication has changed, we want to help.

to stream the entertainment you love. xfinity. the future of awesome. maria: well, the clock is ticking apparently secretary of state mike pompeo is hinting that the trump administration may soon crack down on the chinese social media app tiktok, pompeo weighed in on fox news last night. >> we are taking this very seriously. we are certainly looking at it. we've worked on this very issue for a long time.
6:24 am
>> what do you recommend that people download the app on their phones tonight, tomorrow any time currently? >> only if you want your private information in the hands of the chinese communist party. maria: of course, app has been accused of promoting propaganda and feeding user information directly from china and has been banned in india. dagen mcdowell, tiktok's developer has denied the allegations with the ceo telling reuters it would not comply with giving data request to beijing. dagen: that's what the ceo his name is kevin meyer said, chief executive of tiktok and parent company and hired by disney to shepherd the growth and set aside the concerns about this but when india did the same, banned tiktok, this is what the ceo said then. chinese authorities have never requested the data of their
6:25 am
indian users and even if they had the company would not comply, but, of course, tiktok is the center of a national security review that was requested by senators really beginning with senator marco rubio, but this is a bipartisan effort from those including chuck schumer of new york and tom cotton. so the tiktok is certainly going to be continuing to feel a lot of heat from the u.s. government and maybe users here. maria: yeah, but i mean, just to be clear, if you are a chinese company, you will not say no to the chinese communist party. it's just not how it works. i mean, the ccp, if they want information from any company that is a chinese company they will get it and they will be forced to hand over all data to the ccp. there's also something called civil military fusion where any innovation in china first is checked with the military to see if the military can use it, so,
6:26 am
again, the chinese communist party will run all companies that are in china, so, i mean, he could say he's not going to give the information to the ccp but it's just no way that that would happen if they asked him for the information. dagen: well -- maria: it's not like america where you can say google, guess what, i will walk away from you and won't work with you. that won't fly in china. dagen: the servers weren't in china but in singapore. there's an issue of where the servers were held. maria: and india, of course, banned tiktok and 50 other apps from china. it looks to me like the world is understanding better what the ccp is doing and trying to run over speech. obviously we are seeing that in hong kong as well. we will take a break, when we come back general jack keane, that's coming up. thank you hamilton, musical debut giving disney plus a big

6:35 am
georgia, brian kemp to go to state of new jersey after violent weekend. georgia reporting more than 30 people were shot, 5 people were killed including 8-year-old girl, this comes as the country is witnessing dramatic uptick in shootings in major cities. joining me general jack keane. good to see you this morning, thanks for being here. we want to begin with violence across the country. atlanta is one issue, you've got new york as well, chicago, a deadly weekend there as well. what is going on in the country with all of this violence and what can the administration do to bring calm back? jack: well, we have seen this play before. there's usually a pullback from the police themselves because they are weary of being able to do their job and they don't believe they will be backed off
6:36 am
by police mayor and we have seen that in the country itself but certainly the governor is locking at -- looking at the situation and he knows t out of hand and locking anything he can do to bring it under control. anybody looking at the situation for years knows what it takes to achieve public safety that they need to achieve and that -- that is demonstrated the number of years ago in new york city, boston, los angeles and recently in detroit and there are plenty of benchmarks out there in terms of how to police properly and community relations properly and control level of violence and you have to put the perpetrators away at some point and that's the reality. we have to get them off the streets because they are the ones doing the killing. maria: well, i mean, it start with support from your bosses, support from the governors and the mayors in the cities and the cops are not getting that support. no wonder we are seeing all of
6:37 am
the resignations and retirements going on within the police force. let me turn your attention to china because secretary of state mike pomp bow last -- pompeo saying that the united states is considering banning tiktok and other social media apps. it comes after week after sec designated hauwei and zte as national security threats. your reaction. jack: well, i think what is happening is universal recognition now about how much china is really overstepping their hand and clearly, the major intellectual property theft that they have -- that they have executed against the world at large and use of telecoms and -- and their it companies have also done very much the same in stealing people's secrets, influencing governments, influencing people by the underhand that they've been doing.
6:38 am
they use it to do that. i think, maria, when i look at this strategically, president xi came in 2013 and she put china on a fast track to dominate and control the region and also replace the united states as the world's global leader and i think in those 7 years and when we look back we have clarify than we have right now, i think we will see that president xi has overreached and this pressure inside the country for it as well. belt and road initiative where he build energy project, they are running out of money and they are not delivering quality product. what we saw happen with the pandemic and worldwide condemnation for deception and spreading pandemic and he overreached in hong kong. he thought they were going to be compliant and after a year of protests he had enough and they had to clamp down on them with national security act which has done what, decisive victory in
6:39 am
taiwan for conservative antimainland china candidate as a result of heavy hand in hong kong and the same goes on in the region. he overplayed his hand in the region and we have the united states pushing back significantly making sure partners and allies know that we will be there for them. that's what the two aircraft carriers are doing as we speak. maria: at this point the world and certainly america should understand that the ccp has espionage campaign in place and it's doing it through many ways, whether it's apps or, of course, the technology giants, the u.s. tech giants are pushing back against the controversial hong kong security law. you've got facebook, twitter, google saying that they will suspend requests from the hong kong government for user data. general, your thoughts on that, you're finally seeing social media in the united states recognize that you're dealing with the ccp when you're looking
6:40 am
at hong kong and requests for user data. jack: that's -- that's absolutely the case. the world has woken up to the reality of what the chinese communist party really is and certainly the pandemic has educated many people about it but they made a strategic decision which has impacted evey and get hands on it and to steal it, not the create it but to steal it and that's what they've been doing for years now and starting to catch up. we have a long way to get control of this yet to be sure, but recognizing the problem is a major first step. maria: well, there's an incredible amount of surveillance of americans going on as well. they are doing this through hotels, they are doing this through hauwei infrastructure infrastructure that's still prevalent in america in rural areas.
6:41 am
we have to point that out that hauwei is used in america, those americans are being surveilled. the chinese-base firm, for example, acquired radisson hotels back in 2018. this is jin gan international holdings announced in november that it closed a deal to acquire the majority of ownership of hna tourism also of china of radisson hotels, so when you go to a radisson hotel and you stand there in front -- and you're checking in and they're taking your picture, just remember that's going on the bank of info on you, americans. people miss the fact that americans are being surveilled in their own country because of the way china and the communist party has been able to infiltrate things even the hotel industry, general. jack: the chinese knew a number of years ago clearly what they
6:42 am
were trying to achieve and through behavior they want to gain influence and being able to do something like that is information and they have been riding the it waves and dominating people's leaves a over the world and gaining that information, not just technological information which assists them but information on people, information on corporations, the merges that may be coming and incredibly comprehensive campaign they've been conducting for years. maria: really interesting the radisson hotel, the whole radisson hotel group acquired by china and very little coverage of that. we we wanted to point that out as well because there's ways to infiltrate and steal data importantly our universities. that's why you've seen indictments of university professors like charles leburg,

6:47 am
reversal. largest markets in the country feeling the impact of the coronavirus now. in new york city sales and prices are plunging in the once booming bay area rents are plummeting. joining us jason, good to see you, thank you so much for joining us. not just prices but the number of closed sales in new york city down, down 54% in the second quarter a. says the -- assess the situation and do you look for a rebound? >> a lot of people are asking is this the beginning of when you shallian exit that people have wondered about traumatic incidents in city. we are seeing much more volume and activity since we moved to phase 2 which is now little over 2 weeks ago. so i think what you'll see is market that was dislodged and basically arrested, return to
6:48 am
more normalcy grant it as lower prices because we have seen it move down and now the big question is what happens from here and i think you will see a rebound in new york city. maria: jason, what kind of a decline are you seeing in terms of prices. walk us through real estate in new york right now. are sellers having to cut the price how much? >> so when we begin two weeks ago the expectation was that we were going to be off in order of 5 to 10%. so what you're seeing right now is somewhere in that magnitude where we are seeing deals get done. the other thing that i want to emphasize is before covid we were in a market that was declining for a few years and had been relatively flat and end of last year showing upward momentum to start the year. the market was already down. i don't think you will see what you're seeing in up markets where it's increase velocity.
6:49 am
maria: jon hilsenrath. jon: two questions for you, who wins in this environment if companies and individuals are moving out of big cities and central cities, who are the winners and places that win? there's a lot of talk about crimes in big cities, when you're talking to clients that's something that they are beginning to worry about, crime is going to go back to what it was like in the 90's and just going to be less safe to be there. >> we remind everyone that unlike other cities systematic crime has not been part of the story, recent story of new york city. a lot of them are disappointed in our current one. that's on the crime front. in terms of people going elsewhere, i talked to brokers outside of new york city whether it's in the hamptons, up state, new jersey, they've been

extremely busy and they've been setting records because how fast homes have moved. homes have sold site unseen which would never have happened before and the markets are growing. maria: but that's also a function of the decline in new york, people are leaving the city to move to the country, whether it's the hamptons or out of the city. that also speaks to what's going on in the city. >> sure, you have folks exiting the city and at the same time you have new buyers come into the fold and that's what we are seeing right now. you new folks that come right in and in market that's real decline you don't have buyers waiting in the wing. i think both are true here. maria: all right, jason, thanks very much. jason haber joining us there. new alternative to twitter, we are talking to the ceo on the platform's growth and making

7:05 am
michael cantorwits. state media says china needs a healthy bull market, it's ready to add support to attract investors. michael, we spoke about this earlier. all of the controversy around the chinese communist party, yet chinese stocks continue to rally. what's your take? >> yeah, well, it's different i think from today versus many years -- the last maybe five, six years ago is that china spent a lot of money on infrastructure to get the economy going, to get their economy going. now they're kind of using jaw-boning to get the stock market up without the aggressive investment we saw many years ago. i'm not sure it's going to have a positive growth effect like we've seen in the past. maria: that's a really interesting point, actually. technology stocks obviously fueling a big part of the gains yesterday and last several months. the nasdaq closing at another record high for a third day in a row, marking the 150th record
7:06 am
close under president trump, michael. broadly speaking, whether it's china or tech or sectors, tell me where you want to allocate capital today? >> sure. so just this morning we actually upgraded two defensive sectors, staples and utilities which we had as underweights for the last three months, we moved them up to market weight. not getting as aggressive and negative to say you want to be overweighting defense but i think it's time to start adding a little more defense to the portfolio now that we've already seen the market rebound 42%, now that the covid news is getting -- is changing obviously from where it's been improving and that could make the economic data a little more mixed in the back half of the year compared to what we've seen the last three months. maria: yep. all right, it's a good point. art, let's talk about the u.s. economy here. the president of the atlanta federal reserve warning of a bumpy erode ahead and says the
7:07 am
economy is leveling off as covid-19 cases surge. what's your take? larry kudlow said 20% growth in the third quarter and 20% growth in the fourth quarter. what do you think? >> we're seeing a resurgence of cases in the south and parts of the southwest. the atlanta fed says we're seeing a bumpy ride in the road ahead, i think he's speaking to what he knows. i think those are companies around the georgia area and that part of the south that have seen states tap on the brakes in the reopening plan. i think it makes sense to be cautious here. i think the message that the fed has delivered is we've got to be careful here and there's plenty of monetary policy behind what we've done. i think that's the clear message today. maria: what do you want to do, art? are you going to stay away from some of the high fliers like technology or are you going to allocate capital differently? >> our asset allocation plan
7:08 am
right now, in a traditional 60/40 portfolio, 60% is equities, we want a barbell approach. that barbell approach has the technology momentum names on one side of that. the other side is cyclicality, we want to add cyclicals to that mix. we think that's the best balance to have over the next 12 to 18 months. maria: all right. and let me ask you, joe, your thoughts on tech and where you're seeing money move within the etfs under your umbrella. >> well, we've seen certainly a lot of money moving into the technology side, healthcare and technology we think continues to be strong. tech has been up 17%. but the entrepreneurial health and technology companies have been up over 60%. we have over 25 names, over 100% year-to-date. there's a lot of movement. the shift has gone from the defensive sector into the growth and i think this is a demarcation. covid has accelerated the shift into health and technology and i think that's going to continue for a while and we continue to see a lot of growth opportunity
7:09 am
there. we also see opportunity for entrepreneurial companies globally, particularly the non-u.s. small cap. many individuals have taken advantage of these names that we're familiar with in health and technology like zoom and so forth. we think that's going to continue for at least this year and through the next few years as well in terms of health and technology particularly entrepreneurial names. maria: do things start shifting as we get closer to the election? michael, what's your take in terms of what investors believe will be the policies after november? >> sure, if we knew the outcome of the election we would have a much firmer view on that obviously. the outcome is going to be less dramatic as the previous candidates earlier in the year were, so i think if we have a biden presidency, that probably takes off 8 or $9 off the s&p earnings and so i think
7:10 am
ultimately that would be met with a little more market choppiness than seeing president trump win again. maria: did you want to jump in, michael, on tech or what you just heard? >> sure. yeah, you know, one of the things -- i know a lot of us still have the ugly memory of tech in 2000, and while we always hate to say it's different this time, it is different this time with tech because tech and growth in general as an investment strategy is really a high quality investment strategy today, whereas in 2000, growth stocks were really low quality, high beta stocks without earnings and so that's i think a really important point to make in terms of comparing today to 2000. maria: it's a good point. it was totally different back in the '90s that's for sure. art, you were there and covering this as well. let me ask you, is there a screaming buy to you right now, art? you seemed cautious earlier when talking about the broader
7:11 am
market. >> no, i think -- i agree with michael. i think when you compare with technology is, and amazon was one of the companies we were concerned about with the tech bubble in the late '90s, that evolved into a company that has high quality earnings and has cash generation and this pandemic has proven out that its market share in consumer discretionary retail is one piece of the larger business. amazon services is a large part of that too. i think the quality of technology earnings and revenues are light years ahead of where we were back in '99 and 2000. that said, this has been a tech-led rally, so tech and healthcare companies have led for most of this rally. i would not be surprised to see transition over to cyclical stock as reopenings successfully happen. if that happens as a slower pace, that rotation is going to be slower man. you want a balance of technology and cyclical in your portfolio.
7:12 am
maria: we will leave it there. great panel this morning. michael, you're staying with us all morning. thank you for that. gentlemen, please come back soon. we've got a lot more to talk about with you, art and joel, we appreciate your time this morning. much more ahead. coming up, nissan's chief operating officer is here talking about the turnaround of that company after covid-19 and the arrest of carlos ghosn. columbia business school emeritus is joining us. bob kerry is here to talk tiktok and the state of the 2020 race. we are looking at parler, the new alternative to twitter, the ceo will join me to talk about growth and bringing democrats over to his platform. you're watching mornings with maria live on fox business. we'll be right back. atter] (vo) audi e-tron. the next frontier of electric.
7:13 am
7:14 am
7:15 am
maria: welcome back. coronavirus stimulus, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell speaking out about a
7:16 am
second stimulus check that could be part of the next coronavirus relief package. he said americans making less than $40,000 a year have been hardest hit by the pandemic. the white house expressing interest in another round of stimulus. joining me right now is former omb director, mick mulvaney. it's great to have you this morning. thanks so much for joining us. >> maria, thanks for having me. maria: tell me about some of the important things that goes into deciding what should be in the next stimulus package. we're talking about a population of people making under $40,000 in one area, others you're talking about getting money directly to employees so that it can go out the door and make sure that employees have money continuing to come in. what is the priority in your view in terms of coming up with the next stimulus package? >> yeah, the priority's pretty much the calendar, what you're facing is an election season into a recession which is why we've gone from a consensus, at least within republicans of
7:17 am
let's wait and see to let's pass something which is -- we talked about this before. we fully expect something to pass before the end of july. the only question is what. passing something during july gives politicians a chance to go home during the fall and campaign with something to talk about. my fear is they're looking at it through the lens of trying to pick up political popularity as opposed to looking at how to fix the problem. we've not talked about this idea of giving people money to go on vacation which sounds great, i guess to some folks, but if folks aren't going on vacation because they're afraid of getting sick, giving them money to go on vacation isn't going to solve the problem. i'm hopeful what's going on right now is trying to figure out how to fashion a stimulus that helps us solve the reason we're in this recession in the first place which is solving covid. maria: how successful was the ppp loan program? the trump administration releasing the recipients of small business ppp loans, the
7:18 am
list includes some large companies with ties to politicians, some real insiders including a california winery, co-owned by governor gavin newsom, a firm linked to nancy pelosi's husband, kanye west's sneaker line, robert deniro's restaurants took money. how do these people get money related to insiders? >> you're talking about at least $2 trillion that was supposed to go out in the cares act. any time you're talking about that sum of money, you're going to have those types of circumstances. and i wish that republicans at least had learned the example from the democrats in 2009 and 2010 when they passed the american recovery act, that you can't really buy elections that people tend to react negatively to stimulus as opposed to positively because people see the abuse probably more than they see the impact on themselves. that's not to say ppp didn't help people.
7:19 am
it certainly did. there's a lot of small businesses who benefited. to think there wasn't going to be those types of of stories in advance was naive. i think it's a good time to step back and say okay, we passed the cares act, less than half of the money from the cares act is actually in the system yet. a lot of the money that is in the system is sitting in cash accounts in banks and the economy already seems to have turned around. so if the cares act is working, it's working now and it's starting to help get the economy back on track. i think that's a good time to sort of take that deep breath and say you know what, we know it's politically expedient to pass stimulus now but maybe it's not the best thing economically and maybe we should wait and take a longer look. maria: you mentioned the election and obviously that's sort of on the horizon here. we are, what, 120 days away or something like that to the election of 2020. let me ask you about the president and what he needs to do in your view. i mean, here we have a country that is, you know, seeing its
7:20 am
cities destroyed. you've got infrastructure destruction. you've got shootings rising, crime rising in many, many large cities and of course an economy that is stuck in recession. we are expecting growth in the third quarter but we haven't seen evidence of that yet. what does president trump need to do to in fact get a message across and lead in this uncertain time? you know, you see him tweeting about bubba wallace. a lot of people, even his supporters are saying mr. president, stick to the message. try to ensure that your message on fixing the economy and bringing back law and order of is resonating. >> and you have already seen some indications of growth. maybe that's what he should be talking about. i think it's just over 7 million jobs in the last two months, retail sales are up, home sales in may i think set a record. so there's good news there. how do you take that and turn that into a message that gets you reelected. one thing you do is point out to people that you made america great to use his term in the
7:21 am
first place, can you do it again. if joe biden has a history of anything, it's not being able to get the country out of a slow economy, that eight years under president obama and vice president biden to do that and it didn't work. if the president can draw those contrasts between him and joe biden, that becomes a race between trump and biden, i think the president does extraordinarily well. he shows people if you hire me, this is what you get, if you hire him, you end up with no jobs. if it ends up being a popularity contest or referendum on president trump, i think he's got real headwinds to face. maria: thanks very much for your insights on all of theen te above. when we come back, back on campus or not, harvard's new plans to reopen this fall include full tuition without the classrooms. that's next. we'll get into it. stay with us. stock slices. for as little as $5, now anyone can own companies in the s&p 500,

7:25 am
maria: welcome back. well, harvard university unveiling its reopening plan for the fall. here it is. 40% of undergraduates will be back on campus but all classes will be online. you would think there might be a change in the price. that is not the case here. harvard tuition will remain the same. dagen mcdowell, your take. dagen: what they're doing is a joke. harvard has an endowment of $41 billion and they can't cut tuition just a little bit for students who basically need the price break. get over themselves. maria: yeah. jon, you've got kids in college. should tuition be reduced due to online classes? everything is going to happen online. you're not getting the same university experience. jon: i think it's
7:26 am
extraordinarily frustrating for millions of parents including myself, how much this costs and how much of we have to pour into it. i would direct our readers to a story my colleague josh mitchell wrote recently which showed that some parents are making in-roads by negotiating lower prices individually and i think everyone out there, if you've got kids in school, call the school today and tell them you want a lower price, demand it, because some people are actually making some progress doing it. so let's overrun their phone lines and get a better deal. maria: yeah. and by the way, i don't know what stanford university's plans are, but they're facing criticism because of the extensive relationship it has with china. between 2013 and 2019 stanford accepted $58 million in gifts and contracts from china and its communist government, only harvard ufc and university of
7:27 am
pennsylvania have taken more of money from china. so the chinese communist government is not stupid. they're going to the leading universities and ensuring that the propaganda is there and the theft continues in a sustained way. but michael, your thoughts in terms of college and kids going back, it will be all johnson & johnsoall online atharvard, yete same, no decline in pricing for tuition. michael: i agree with jon. that's quite frustrating. my kids are not quite college age. but it's -- there is a risk with college students being obviously living in close quarters together, of covid spreading. whereas younger kids that are less su susceptible, kids 12 and younger, going back to school i think is going to be a real important step to getting the economy back to allow people to go back to work with younger kids. so it's a balance across ages. dagen: one of the biggest lies
7:28 am
sold to american families over the last 30 years is that somehow one of these college degrees is worth 100,000, a quarter of a million dollars, because except for maybe harvard and princeton, when you get out, you have no shot of making that kind of money and paying back those loans you took out. it is a lie that was sold to the american people and all these companies need to step up and start hiring kids out of high school and training them. maria: coming up, nissan's chief operating officer is here. go ahead, you want to jump in there, jon? jon: i want to push back a little bit on dagen. there's a lot of research that shows that having a college degree is going to make you much better off in the long run than not going to college. so i don't know about the surge in people -- about discouraging people from going to college. i will agree the cost is ex exorbitant in part because the
7:29 am
government got in the business of making loans to people and it distorted things. maria: when we come back, we're talking with the chief operating officer of nissan, talking about turning that company around after carlos ghosn's arrest. back in a moment. rcycle policie? ok? that's 15 percent on top of what geico could already save you. so what are you waiting for? dj khaled to be your motivational coach? yo devin! remember to brush in a circle motion. thank you... dj... khaled. tiny circles, devin. do another one. another one. is this good? put in that work, devin. don't give up. geico. save an extra 15% when you switch by october 7th.

maria: welcome back. good tuesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is tuesday, july 7th. markets at 7:32 a.m. on the east coast pulling back after yesterday's big rally. take a look at futures, indicating the dow futures down 234 points, nasdaq down 40, s&p 500 down 23. we are expecting a weak opening this morning. european indices red across the board. the eurozone is headed toward a deeper recession than previously thought. the fq10100 is down 78, dax is down 145. in asia overnights markets were mostly lower with the exception of china where stocks rose
7:33 am
following yesterday's rally after state run media said that china needs a healthy bull market and is ready to add support. retail investors opened accounts in china in the millions. new restrictions for international students studying in the united states. cheryl casone with those details right now. cheryl: some foreign college students will not be able to attend school in the u.s. this fall under new guidelines issued by federal immigration officials. international students will be forced to transfer to another college or leave the country if their school only offers courses online. as of this fall, some students will be on campus, others will be remote. foreign enrollment at some u.s. schools can be as high as 15% in this nation, we should add. well, we mentioned the big streaming numbers of hamilton on disney plus in the last hour. despite that milestone, the hashtag cancel hamilton is growing on social media forcing the creator of the hit musical
7:34 am
to respond to critics who say the show glor glorifies slavery. when it debuted in 2015, the world was different. they say they took six years and did as much as they could in a two and-a-half hour musical, did my best. it's all fair game. hamilton, the first u.s. secretary of the treasury, married into a slave-owning family. he helped manage the sale of slaves for his in-laws. here's a look at what's trending. peter teal's company confidentially filed for an ipo, not sure whether it's going to be a direct listing or not. colin kaepernick signed a deal with disney for a documentary series that explores racial and social injustice. royal caribbean and norwegian cruise lines are developing safety standards for restarting
7:35 am
their businesses during the coronavirus pandemic. those are your headlines from the newsroom, maria. back over to you. maria: all right. cheryl, thank you so much. guiding nissan through the global pandemic is next, the japanese car maker reportedly securing $7.8 billion from creditors shoring up cash flow as it seeks to recover from falling sales. the company working alongside its partners, renault and mitsubishi, to implement this nissan next revival plan. after seeing its first loss in 11 years and moving past the arrest of former ceo carlos ghosn. joining me now is the chief operating officer of nissan, ashwani gupta. ashwani, thank you for joining me this morning. we appreciate your time. what's your plans to turn around nissan? >> maria, thank you for having me on the show. nissan next is a radical transformation plan which is based on prioritization and focus and that will bring sustainable growth in the future. what does it mean, it means
7:36 am
we're going to focus on our number one core markets, number two, core products and number three, the core technologies. maria: how much input will the japanese government have in terms of nissan's plans to grow? >> well, nissan next is driven by our nissan management and i think we have the support of our shareholders and our stakeholders to make it happen and we do believe that with this transformation plan, we will bring back nissan on a profitable growth path. maria: so tell me about the product portfolio, ashwani. because there is concern that there's an aging product portfolio, reduced daily rental fleet sales and obviously strict incentive policies and that's part of the issue in terms of cutting volume. >> well, at first our overall
7:37 am
product lineup was getting old. i think it was more than 40 years of age. and when we make a focus on united states, because united states is one of our core markets and the success of united states mean the success of nissan globally. when we talk about the united states, our product lineup is going to be renewed. so in the next 28 months we are going to launch eight new products in the united states, which will be with the latest technology in terms of safety, in terms of easy to drive, in terms of fun to drive. we already demonstrated that with the high performance sedan we launched, sentra and we announced the new rogue which will be launched later this year. by doing this complete product renewal with the latest technology, what we are trying to create is to shift the focus
7:38 am
from volume to value and this we are going to do with the three pillars. number one, change the way we do business. number two, change the product. and number three, change the culture. and as a result, we are going to focus more on the retail sales and in the last four months we have demonstrated that the focus on retail sales is bringing more and more value and boosting our brand image in the united states. maria: well, the product changes certainly will be critical. there is a movement now of people wanting you to be ceo, according to reuters, sources within the company have been pushing for you to take over as ceo. the sources telling reuters they would want a, quote, natural transition with you sharing the tie tile wit -- title with the current ceo. do you feel have you the autonomy you need or do you feel that you're answering to many
7:39 am
chiefs, given the japanese government and its feelings about nissan being the jewel of the country. >> well, nissan next has been prepared and being executed under the leadership of ceo and coo with the complete management team. and as far as i'm concerned, i have two missions. number one, to recover nissan and number two is to protect nissan. with these two missions, we are moving forward as one team. maria: you know, we saw what happened with carlos ghosn. he obviously wanted to merge mitsubishi, nissan, and renault. and had real pushback from the japanese government and later he told me, look, if you're not japanese, you are going to have -- you're going to face problems running one of the leading companies in gentleman a japan,t the way it is with the government. ashwani, your heritage is
7:40 am
obviously indian. do you face pushback from your chairman, from the japanese government, in terms of moves you want to make? who you ever merge nissan with mitsubishi and renault? >> well, my appointment in nissan is not a surprise because i'm the oldest person in the alliance, having spent more than 15 years in all the three companies, starting from renault, then nissan, then mitsubishi and then back to nissan. the second thing is, i do believe that alliance is a tool to boost the performance of each company and i believe in the principle that the three companies should keep their brands distinctive and their p & l distinctive and alliance should bring performance to each of the companies and this principle has not changed in nissan next and we are moving

7:46 am
get money, the program helped -- designed to help struggling small businesses during the covid-19 pandemic, also aiding the wealthy and well connected. notable recipients include kanye west's brand, the nobu restaurant group, this as lawmakers weigh additional stimulus. joining us now is dean emeritus of columbia business school, glen hubbard. it's great to see you this morning. thank you so much nor joining us. >> likewise. thank you. maria: the program, do you think it worked? >> i think the ppp program was a very good idea that tried to keep people tried to their jobs. i think it did work in terms of keeping employment higher than it might have been. yes, there are problems around the edges. i think the treasury department and small business ad administration administrated it not as well as they might have. yes, on balance, i think the program worked. maria: what's your take on the economic growth story for the rest of the year?
7:47 am
do you think that we get out of this recession in the third quarter and start seeing growth? >> we're going to see growth. i've been describing this as like a nike swoosh. so you have a sharp downturn and a gradual upturn. i think we're going to see that. we have the low hanging fruit of the recovery, it may be more of a grind many we need a little bit more fiscal support for the economy, for unemployment, for states and a little bit of help from the fed for small and mid-size businesses and their main street program. maria: jon hilsenrath. jon: i want to come back to the ppp question. i want to read a list of some of the entities that got money from ppp. the client of nancy pelosi's husband, an elite private school in washington, d.c. that took obama's children, grover norqist unit, daily caller, kanye west,
7:48 am
the rand institute, you know, there's a lot of talk about draining the swamp in washington. i did a calculation, lobbying spending in d.c. is up at a 3.6% annual rate in just the last three years outpacing inflation. has the swamp actually been drained in this town? >> well, of course it hasn't. and the cases you mentioned are a problem. but you have to ask yourself with ppp, if we had put extremely narrow and strict rules, we wouldn't have got it off the ground very of fast. we're in the middle of a crisis. i think congress understood that and relied on firms to self-certify. there are anti-fraud provisions and some people who received funds may be in trouble. but this was always a risk of the program, for sure. maria: what about this covid-19 weekly unemployment boost? that's set to expire at the end of the month. should it be extended? >> no. the $600 was too much.
7:49 am
it really made not working better than working for many people. in an aspen institute economic strategy group report, i and some co-authors suggested actually boosting unemployment insurance but as a percentage of wages with a number much less than $600. i think we need some help but the $600 wasn't targeted very well. maria: yeah. i mean, obviously it's encouraging people to stay home and getting paid more being at home than they are on the job, why would you give that up any time soon? >> exactly. during the shutdown that may have been less of a worry. now that we're reopening and trying to get people back to work it's definitely a worry. so in the aspen report, we suggested reforming that but also really strengthening low wage work through the eitc. there's much we can do, but not the $600. maria: glen, thank you for your insights this morning. coming up, walmart summer camp, featuring neil patrick harris,

facebook or web sites all that sort of thing you know you could, i can fly down to little rock, you know go inside governor's mansion have a conversation with request him very few people knowing i was there the intensity of the focus is much greater i am sure the vice president's is very much aware that the number about that is most important to him is 270. so he has to get 270 electoral votes regardless of all the other can't you get somebody that has this, that or other characteristic more important thing is 270. my guess is that is going to be a primary consideration. it is also true for both he and president they have to think about i will put it this way, if i or anybody over the age of 70 goes to sleep tonight dies in he sleep the first thing people are not going to say tomorrow morning is that was a surprise. so joe anybody picking a vice president over the age of 70
8:25 am
has to sit there and say, what happens, if -- suddenly they become president of the united states capacity to do it i am sure, that joe is thinking that way in addition to thinking about 27 electoral votes. >> i think you make a great point may very well be o whoever he chooses as vice president will become president. >> how will you go bridging dwi in washington nothing seems to get done each side hates each other. >> there is no question, that more than just partisan it is polarization, that occurred. sort of a stacking on the issues made it more difficult for democrat to move to the middle or republican to move to the middle because they get they get trashd, by thes extremes, if you are going to get immigration done economic

see in other places. >> that is really important point, that you are making. and you are right, we wanted just a platform in 1996 telecom acting pretty much gave the social media companies privilege having a platform as explainer of who they are allowed them to get protection in terms of getting sued, by people, that is obviously, now potentially changinging with doj proposal to remove that protection, assess the situation for us, before moving on to explaining specifically, about parler how do you see the social media situation today? is there truth that there is censorship? >> i think they are censoring, i don't think they believe they are, i don't know that they would admit they are but it is pretty clear behaving like publications that is where the problem comes down to telling you, their open community forum for people
8:37 am
behaving like publications choosing what reaches the audience what doesn't, from that perspective, i think that is why it is created a lot of political you know problems for them. that is why it has been getting worse and worst and to be honest, we are kind of probably a good thing for them because, i know shows that there is a marketplace where people can choose different platforms that we can effectively get into this market, and make a splash, when has been really nice this year even last year too. and so, in a way, this is really the answer to a lot of those problems. >> yeah, i will tell you, i joined, i am will now -- at on parler, but how do you keep this app from becoming the other side? of twitter or essential a trump rally? that was a criticism raised in a recent article in politico, how do you broaden out user base and tell us your business model how do you make money?
8:38 am
>> well, frankly a lot of these media outlets like to write articles about us like that unhappy we have such a large audience now that politico article i think was very unfair we have a lot of people coming on different viewpoints because they are kind of tired of sitting there, going you know look at this this is where all people want to argue with are in debate so they are going to join, and you are seeing diversity as a result of that in terms of monetizing, seasons i last kind of spoke about it, we've seen a tremendous amount of interest in the advertising the only thing we haven't done is actually been able do sell them because we've been too buzz focusing on growing our platform. we have scene up to 50,000 dollars a day in ad sales great promising but, you know, as we grow this is going to get earn better bigger, as we continue to make this more advanced ad in issuing going to be very, very nice for
8:39 am
people. >> so tell me what growth plan is how do you continue to grow in the coming five years? what is the strategy? >> well i am focusing on near-term right now big thing we want to make sure, that the services foot of working well that everybody gets to reach their audience. and as long as we can provide that, within next you know year i can see us growing another 10 x, from current capacity especially political situation online censorship twitter facebook, all other places they continue to hamper down cures to see what is coulding to happen with political ladders want a fair discussion this is not just in united states, last week we had large influx of people from brazil president of brazil joined our platform, you know now we've got netanyahu joined us from israel a lot of people from different countries around the world not just united states

8:41 am
concept that if they don't think other people want to see your content it is not going to show up to other people so you are o not going to reach your audience who opted in to following you. >> exactly right so you just named a number of high precisely people, who joined parler do you feel you are getting a group liberal voices as well as conservatives do you feel you are broaden out to broader public. >> i think we are. i don't think as quick obviously, but we are seeing a lot of people coming on there and some are just the there to make that nasty comments about how awful we are tell us their organizing groups to make bad reviews for us i have seen that, too, unfortunately, but we also get some people coming in going look at why are people joining i want to have a conversation with them i want to find out what they are talking about what they are trying to do, and they are coming in so there is genuine interest as well not just -- just in conservative community, but i think it is
8:42 am
going to be a little bit of a long term before they really start joining in more mass. >> have i know that you know most conservatives want to see this problem fixed by marketing share by capitalism markets working you are obviously, taking market share we will be watching john congrats to you we hope you come back soon, thank you, sir. . >> thank you. take care. >> john matze joining us, fox business alert united airlines warning of potential furloughs due to travel reduction according "wall street journal" the airline says boogdz began to slide in june after new york, new jersey kent announced a 14-day quarantine from a variety of coronavirus hot spots stock down 3% right now on this news, united airlines going to be one to watch this morning, with a decline of better than a dollar a share coming up the state of unemployment, people getting more money from the government, than from working taking a look at that you are watching "mornings with maria" live on fox business.

8:54 am
amebic encephalitis, are brain infection through nose into body travels to brain driveways brain one of the really sort of tragic about this this is a deadly condition over 97% fatality rate it is rare that is a good thing to know. maria: so you said that it goes into the nose, how do people get infected? have just a sneeze or a cough? and is there a cure? >> that is a great question, so, i can't get this contaminated water or anything like that can't get from oceans again, it is freshwater typically acquired from swimming or diving in warm bodies of freshwater what happens sort of that force is going into the water, about when water goes into the nose that is what allows that amoeba to travel into the brain, the way that we want you to prevent it had been you can you can would i warm bodies of freshwater right swimming doing activities in
8:55 am
lakes rivers, et cetera, things like that, but, also, other ways prevention holding your nose trying to using nose clips things like that nothing is necessarily one hundred percent, this amoeba is found in lots of bodies of watered, once again, the good thing it is very rare, cdc says only 145 recorded cases between 1962 and 2018 but on flip side is a mentioned before this is over 97% mortality rates of 475, four survived the treatment for not the best i still think a work in progress the most important thing for people to know,s is that they have symptoms nausea vomiting headaches hi fever seizures mental status changes dizzy confused symptoms that are not right after swimming or any other time you need to see your doctor promptly. >> you said that this also could happen in pools that are
8:56 am
not maintained. so what does that mean for chlorine? in the pools? have summertime so ti c.k. season experts fearing unusually bad season amid coronavirus talk to us what we are dealing with in terms of summertime chlorine in pools tick season. >> most important for those having pools or local pool things like that important for that pool to be o properly maintained means making sure properly cleaned about about disinfected color in aitdz it is when not proper maintained we get concerns for amoeba other things tick disease lime disease, rather avoid ticks wear bug spray all prevention are really, really important for summertime. >> all right, great to get your insights thank you so much we will see you soon, thank you quick break and then more "mornings with maria"
