second half of the year, management is calling this a transition year from the big e-commerce pull forward that we saw during the pandemic and yesterday we told you they cut 10% of their staff. stuart: they are victims of a slowing economy and consumers from buying stuff, that is the problem. >> it might be the only negative big earnings report will think of this morning. most are positive are being interpreted as positive. stuart: what about boeing i saw them report this morning. >> quarterly numbers missed, you are correct. here's a but a step to the goal of positive free cash flow for this year end they also said we're in the final stages of getting a dreamliner that is stuck in hangers for over a year now back because of all of the delays and issues with the jets, there's also no drama in the report and no drama as a
catalyst than the 737 max grandin, after the supply chain only no drama 3.% gain. stuart: tell me about t-mobile, subscriber growth they raise their forecast for the second time and this is a show of the sign of the times the cheaper plans our customers like them because of inflation. stuart: you know what i mean the top line or the bottom line. the computers read and all hell breaks loose and they settled on the next day we get a realistic evaluation of the stock. >> i think that about commentary and the forecast as it usually is but more so this time around. stuart: i can't stand watching business reporters go up, they beat and they missed the top line and the bottom. that is. laziness. >> is that a criticism? >> that is a criticism of the earnings report. >> we try to give you what matters more than the exact number or the mist or the beat
or the in-line. stuart: why should i care that they announced they are going to have a trial, when is it going to happen. >> this is interesting i can't tell you when the trial is going to happen sometime in october they cannot even agree on the date, elon musk wanted the week of the 17th and twitter wanted october 10. come on twitter is also saying we want our shareholders to vote on the take private at 5420 as agreed upon in the scheduling that vote for september 13. stuart: it is fun but there's so much going on. it really is excellent. what else do we have going on. check the futures, shall gilani is with us this wednesday morning. good to see you. i want to talk about microsoft and alphabet, they missed on the report but they are rallying today. would you buy them today, these two? >> we are nibbling and a lot of companies including the big tech
companies that was better than expected. they're not good but better than expected. not much was expected. i think this is an opportunity to buy some of the great companies, they have been on sale. the market seems to be firming up we're at a point where it's about investor sentiment. what's going to happen with the fed how is the market going to react what are investors going to do a lot of great companies on sale and if the market rallies they get a piling on them and create momentum and see markets go higher if we get some better than expected, continue better-than-expected earnings that are just terrible. the companies that are doing well are getting hammered which is understandable but net net investors now think they see our horizon, if the fed does put forward 74 basis point hike then maybe with oil prices, gas prices coming down, maybe with the ukraine starting to export grain, maybe we will see prices
come down and maybe the fed will hesitate on further hikes and i think the market is looking forward and say the economy is slowing but we are not in a recession yet we may be by tomorrow morning. if we are in a recession it's a growth recession we are still moving see the bargains that are out there to be had in the market. stuart: shah gilani sounded a lot more pessimistic than it was in the past. we will see you again. we dealt with the markets and the analyst and all the rest of it. i want to get the politics president biden's popularity is taking a hit in his hometown that will be screened in pennsylvania. >> how bad of a hit. >> pennsylvania is a swing state working-class neighborhood that feels abandoned by his policies and let me tell you how bad it is. this poll shows a favorability rating of 47% down from 60% in the summer of 2020. this is an opportunity not just for republicans to flip the
district but potentially the state. stuart: an op-ed in the new york times and the title is are leaderless free world, columnist bret stephens says biden should withdraw from the 2024 race now. that is in the new york times in the cnn poll shows pete buttigieg is ahead of president biden for the 2024 race that is a new hampshire which is a key state. liz peek joins us this morning. it is no longer whispers, the voices are getting much louder. dump biden, get out biden. >> they also want to dump trump. >> how could they not get to this point. i think all conversations about biden running again and 24 are completely ludicrous he will not be the candidate i do not think he will run he will be encouraged to step aside the question is whether he gets to the 2024 race what about the next two years if the democrats
get beaten up badly in the midterm elections will there be movement to have biden move on by the way i think that would be a done deal except for kamala harris who is trying to reach ethically new lows in terms of her performance, standing and pulling. it's incredibly bad believe it or not worse than joe biden right now. stuart: you have your own op-ed right now why desantis could be the cure for an alien america? before you spell it out, are you a desantis supporter? >> i am i think we need a candidate who will embrace trump's policies with work which is popular and carry those into the 2024 election without an enormous amount of baggage. i think that's where ron desantis is. people don't know him very well at this point. what they should know he's incredibly smart he went to yale university, he is a harvard law graduate, he's a vet, he served in iraq he checks a lot of boxes
particularly for conservatives. he managed the state afford extremely well. it's a horrible time to be governor of a state managing covid and to come back from covid, houston better than almost any governor and i think he gets a lot of credit from that. he asked to be reelected governor and i think he will be easily but i think he is a terrific candidate for 24. stuart: you put your market down for desantis, let me hear you. check the futures, lots of green on your screen this morning the nasdaq up nearly 200 points back to the opening bell. don't know how we will close. coming up vice president kamala harris marks after she introduced herself with pronouns. rotate. >> i am kamala harris, i am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue shirt. >> jason will take it on later in the show. congressman mike waltz will investigate china if republicans

>> are not just there thereby and in the dakotas they bought up tracks in texas, two reasons, number one the parcels that their buying just so happen to be miles away from armas sensitive military bases and we know from the fbi who just had a press conference with the mi5 in britain there is a tsunami of chinese espionage going on right now not just military but industrial as well. longer term we have seen china dominate and create dependency on a pharmaceutical market could we no longer produce penicillin in this country, and a green energy market 90% of the world solar panels and now in the food supply they also had just bought up the largest pork processing plant at the united states.
we know from chinese documents that have been leaked they intend to use the supply chains to choke off our economy if we dare disagree with them and add computer chips to that as well we have to put a stop to it. biden walked, we will. stuart: let me add this to the mix and investigation found that china had targeted the federal reserve to build an informant network to access our data. that is going for the financial jugular, isn't it congressman. >> it absolutely is that the holy grail for them to influence our money supply. add onto that, we remember when president trump band huawei and everybody threw their hands up in the air, now it turns out that while white powers across the midwest are also collecting on our military bases after an extensive investigation. it goes on and on, wall street, hollywood, academia, influencing, university system
endowment so they can influence them, it's been taught the talents program, this is a whole of government, whole of society push from the chinese communist party to win an economic war before we ever get to any type of military conflict. stuart: listen to what national security council spokesperson john kirby says about china and speaker pelosi potential trip to taiwan. rotate. >> that rhetoric coming out is clearly unhelpful and not necessary. there has been no trip announced and there is no call for that escalatory rhetoric. >> if he backs down even though it's not a formal trip if he backs down the chinese win, he she's got ago. >> that is right she's got to go. we won't even send an elected leader to visit taiwan what message does that send to our allies, the japanese, south
koreans, australians and the chinese communist party in the military there that if we won't even visit what message does that send in terms of our willingness to defend that democracy and ally never thought i would be supportive of speaker pelosi on anything. stuart: congressman mike waltz from the state of florida, always appreciated. see you later. the people of taiwan they want civil defense trading they have seen her russia's invasion of ukraine unfolded what exactly are they doing. >> civilians regular people getting ready to use weapons, dress wounds, rescue people from rubble and the group that does the trading they are named for alliance they saw a huge jump and demand after russia invaded ukraine because the worry is that invasion and bolding china to invade taiwan. they want to be able to defend themselves like they are seen ukrainians do so aerobically. stuart: when you see that going

stuart: futures show a nice amount of green right there, let's begin at eagle bore until recently until now has been saying sell all the rallies. , are you selling this rally? >> the only thing that will change my mind in the near-term the fed surprises today and implies that they will be more data dependent before the next rate hike in september.
i don't think they're going to do that. the bigger picture is this the dollar continues to be a major headwind for corporations it is going to stay strong when you listen to these earnings reports at&t and verizon say earners are having a hard time paying their cell phone bills, were seeing the same with auto loans and credit cards and walmart comes on talks about the consumers buying staples and their apparel continues to show higher inventory. inflation has finally come to a by our thesis we are going into a recession. ethical mild recession but i believe we're going to take a major leg lower in the coming months recession in our opinion. stuart: you guys have a problem you told your clients get out, go to cash or whatever, get out of stocks, largely, when you
tell people to go back and if i try to pick a bottom all the time. >> you go back in with the data supports it. we have a process that works and we have a lot of confidence in it. when a to be right all the time but we have a really good batting average. so far we've been pretty accurate in our calls. we will pivot when the data pivots. we need the tenure, let's look at the yield curve. we have not seen a yield curve this wide since the 2000 tech bubble, the bond market has been right and it's screaming a bigger recession than what it was a month ago so those dynamics have to change and corporate profit continue to come down. were talking about them until we bottom in regards to the rate of change of corporate profit until they dollar gets weaker and the yield curve changes in inflation comes. that's not going to change overnight we plan to bring to be
fully or closer to a bottom. stuart: i the fourth quarter, what is interesting to you. >> mega cap check it when you look at the nasdaq is taking a big hit, we're going to want to buy quality companies the going to be here for the long haul and we do believe that were in the time. doesn't matter if you're good company or bad company if there is a broad-based selloff in the s&p goes down to 34, 3500 they are all going to drop and working to be huge buyers and will be bullish for a long time after that. this is one of the cycles that happens everyone - 7 years and you have to be able to protect capital during the downturn and dusters are tired of being told to stay the course invited out that does not work in a recession whether long-term or short-term investor. it only works for day traders and we are not day traders. stuart: you make a very good
case and you have been right so far and i hope you're right in the future. i'd love to see another bull market next year i would love to see that. stuff we will see you soon. we open the market in 15 seconds were looking for a lot of green at the opening bell the nasdaq in particular by microsoft and google they reported late yesterday, those two stocks are up and that is powering the nasdaq let's see if the power the rest of the market we are up and running (visit on wednesday july the seventh and looks like we have a nice rally microsoft the top performer in the dow 30, top left up $9, but weight is up $5 and significant gain for big names. s&p 500 that is also opening higher to the tune of 1%. a very solid gain i'm expecting to see the nasdaq goes straight up, 1.6% higher, that is the

it's mrs. in the quarter and it's all excusable a strong dollar, the supply chain disruption, it's russia according to morningstar is beyond microsoft's control who cares if they missed on the revenue nearly $52 billion or didn't grow as much as expected, there still doing great. stuart: they are indeed. how about chipotle, the stock is up i pretty sure about is up eight or 9%. i understand they imposed price hikes and that boosted their profitability. my question are they going to raise prices more in the future. >> next month they can, the ceo says we have a more affluent consumer, they like our stuff over to hike prices again that is why profits increase in the quarter, here's another benefit it might seem counter intuitive but fewer online orders so fewer people going there so chipotle
doesn't have to deliver your burritos and that protects their margin. you could spend that as a positive because clearly to polling businesses. stuart: if you are not delivering you the restaurant keep all the money. paypal and activist investor has revealed a stake in the company. it's up 5.8%. >> elliott investment management are building a stake to be one of the top five biggest shareholders which also owns venmo because he could push forward changes or more cost cuts which aren't always good, paypal already lowered it and they weren't inflation is hitting her customer inflation volumes. stuart: hilton reported before the bell i have not read the report, what are the highlights. >> continued strong travel demand and expect to see that throughout the year. the stock is at five-point to percent gain and i'm going to get a little tacky on you. revenue per available room is

inflation led the fed to be more aggressive during the last meeting because the same scenario happened. there are some saying a full point rate hike will have to happen but most are thinking 75 basis point move. we began the federal fund rates. halfway through the year we expect the reit to be two and a quarter and 2.5% for this federal reserve that's a huge move in a short amount time. they like to move slower going up or down to settle the market to make it easier on the market. the white house economic advisor talked about this decision yesterday. listen to this. >> we've identified as the fed takes the steps it will take. we have identified a set of very clear steps that we can take and that we could take working with congress to actually help to increase the prospect that we get to that goal.

growing more rapidly than prices. >> we have roughly 9% inflation now, do you think that is the peak but we only come down to 6%. >> 7% by the end of the year but that time wages are growing no faster than 5%, the average american the middle-class consumer is getting pinched kind of economic growth for the rest of the year. >> is going to be a pretty flat ill average faster than 1.5% quarter to quarter on average if we are lucky keeping eye on real consumer spending later this week most believe it'll grow by only 1% but if that begins to shrink then were in big trouble and were looking at a contraction by gdp in a fundamental core sense. stuart: your bottom line this year 2022 is going to be pretty flat bumbling along without much growth for the entire year, that is your forecast. >> that's my forecast and at
some point we can have an outright contraction of gdp this could be indisputable sign of recession. we may get a job for the second quarter but that's going to be a drop in inventory accumulation, consumer spending alcohol. much slower growth by business investments, spending and unfortunately residential, housing is good to take a big hit and that will continue. stuart: you could still see a nice stock market rally towards the end of the year if you economic scenario is right. >> that's right. >> as long as the equity market believes that that is all but finished with hiking rates in the ten year yield is not going to break them well above 3% anytime soon that could be the case. stuart: that the key indicator the ten year treasury yield got to stay below 3%. >> acid is i cannot believe this we have had not only fed rate
hikes but we had quantitative tightening since june the consensus thought the ten year yield 3.2% instead is under 2.8% that reflects not only expectations of slower economic growth but of a slowdown by price inflation. there's no way in the world that ten year yield would be under 2.8% for credit market believed that we are going to have more or worse news on inflation. stuart: fascinating. peak inflation says john lonski. >> all be back to defend myself. >> will one economist who says home plate are going to plunge substantially. lauren is following this. who is saying that and what is a substantial punch. >> shepherdson at printing and macro is about 20% the supply is growing we have the new home sales yesterday inventory is up

focus on the future to win back america. we can't afford to take our eyes off the road in front of us. stuart: rachel campos duffy joins us, the president is looking back to 2020. pence wants to go forward. >> reporter: people who want to look back are the democrats who keep holding these january 6th hearings nobody cares about. you can just look at where both of them shows to speak. there is pence, young americans foundation, very establishment youth organization, trump went to speak at turning point where the activism and energy is, you have these two organizations, run by scott walker and the other by charlie kirk. in wisconsin, people here are
experiencing a lot of pain. farmers, small businesses, you see moms struggling with what they will put on their baskets, absolutely heartbreaking seeing people put down meet to figure out if they can afford to put it in their basket. no one is talking about pence for president. people want to change the conversation i am hearing on the ground, entirely about trump versus desantis and look at the straw polls at these organizations, trump and desantis, pence polls behind, kristi noam, one%. pence is a nice guy, i'm sure he is a good person, but there is no appetite for that well mannered patrician type republican in the party right now.
stuart: sorry to interrupt. if it is trump desantis would you tell us on this program today who you are for? >> i think they both bring interesting things to the table. when i talk to people and i ask that question and they say we will take either. what they don't want to something from the past. they don't want well mannered patrician establishment types. look what is happening in the democrat party. they are choosing style over substance. they will replace president biden with pete buttigieg, both of them very boring candidates. the policies won't change with pete buttigieg. if you look at pence versus trump the policies, people are saying they want someone who will fight a little more. they like donald trump and they like ron desantis because they
have seen him fight during the pandemic. stuart: politics are your bread and butter. you love politics, you bring passion to the table every time. thanks for being with us. there is a new ad campaign and it is going after vulnerable democrats, over the president's spending spree, going after build back better. lauren: the president and democrats pushing smaller chunks of it and trying to do so by reconciliation. this republik an organization connected to the heritage foundation running ads like this for senator cortez master, joe manchin, look at senator cortez masteroh, they are vulnerable and want to persuade people in their district, to tell the representative no more spending.

issues in the economy and that will be dictated by rising unemployment rate. half of americans living paycheck to paycheck, what happens when the paycheck goes away? stuart: you are not buying stocks today or in the last month? where is your money? is it in cash? >> these are unprecedented times, usually when we enter a recession the fed is in hiking interest rates into the recession. typical asset allocation, stocks and bonds don't work anymore you need to get creative and sometimes cash is king. not many people have heard of a strategy like this but owning high quality stocks like microsoft, makes a lot of sense, you've got to get creative. stuart: i am trying, doing all right so far. big movers this morning,

the second half of the year. it was ugly. deterioration, the worst we have seen in 15 years. i don't know. the 5% gain. stuart: what is this about uber extending its electric car service. lauren: 7 more cities vegas, seattle, boston and baltimore. this means the driver for uber can rent a tesla or another luxury ev and they can rent that and you as a customer can fit comfortably in it. it's not a fancy story but the best part is they have a tutorial to show you how to open the doors of a tesla when it arrives.

tech doing well today. airfares have begun to come down. on average how much are flights going to be cheaper? lauren: the file average for airfares $298. we see airfare coming down in the fall, summer vacation is over, you're ahead of the winter holidays. i would call it dramatic, airlines haven't added more roots are bulked up their staff, the fact prices are dropping is a good sign. stuart: a significant drop as well. democrats want transportation secretary pete. judge to impose fines, madison allworth, how high do these fines go? give me a dollar number? >> these fines should reach

senator kirsten jell-o brand --gillibrand was stuck after several delays. >> who knows? that is why we are calling for investigation of what is going on with air travelers today. >> reporter: we reached out to the industry airline and they shared with fox business us airlines provide safe efficient travel and are committed to increasing operational reliability. there have been steps to prevent these delays and cancellations, and to increase number of staffing. you have likely been caught up and told how frustrating it is. as of this moment, 1000 flights were delayed today and 200 have

it is a real problem. i join with senator lindsey graham to discuss the pilots fly actor raise the age from 65 to 67. in 2007 we raised the age from 60 to 65, japan raised age to 68. a lot of pilots out there, and he posed this because he's in the hip pocket of unions, you want to keep the market small. we like markets, we have healthy experienced pilots who can alleviate the problem. and we want the department of justice to require live golf to register as foreign agents for saudi arabia. what is your problem with live golf? >> you've got saudi arabia government that has a $1
billion public investment fund they are using to target the pga tour and using it for publicity for saudi arabia. the foreign agent registration act requires a foreign country to register, they have agents involved in pr whether it is players or lobbyists. who is registered? i sent a letter to the department of justice, for advancing the publicity of the government of saudi arabia. you don't have to look further than donald trump who in talking live golf is out saying this is great publicity for saudi arabia. why have they not registered as foreign agents when coming to the united states to promote a billion-dollar fund for saudi arabia when it is connected to 9/11 disaster and families of the 9/11 victims are devastated about what is happening. stuart: i get the impression you want to shut live golf down. >> they are coming after an

the s&p, it should be double digits, lower their full-year profit guidance and they said they -- things are bad and raising prices again in the us, effective in september, they sell the emerald designer addition paint and guess how much 1 gallon cost? $95 for a gallon of fancy pain. stuart: what the market is saying is sherwin-williams does not have pricing power. the market rewards companies which have pricing power but taken away from those that don't have pricing power. lauren: that would be accurate. stuart: what about hess, the energy people? lauren: the negative is what investors are focusing on. they lower their production output for the year, that overshadowed the positive, 9 fold increase, adjusted profit because oil prices rose so much
in the quarter. and garman is down 8%, cutting guidance for the year, they need the strong us dollar, i didn't know that, a wearable watch, i did not know that and that is their worst performer, the revenue fell by 34%. that is why they put up a bad report card. stuart: the biden administration will sell 20 million barrels of oil from the strategic petroleum reserve. will that bring relief at the pump? >> the white house thinks so which is why they are doing it, the strategic petroleum reserve has a big impact on high gas prices. >> the president is focused on taking actions like historic step to put 1 billion darrell's a day, and we have seen that
helps to reduce energy prices. lauren: the release of millions of barrels has dropped gas by $0.40 a gallon but some analysts do not agree. he said i do not agree with the notion the white house released oil from the spr is a key catalyst pushing gas prices down. most of the decline is due to potential economic slowdown, rising interest rates and limited improvement in refined product inventories, they are lowering the ceiling on how oil prices could go out not necessarily lowering the price of oil, they should look to the ground for the answer instead of dipping into supplies that is our safety net if there is an energy emergency. >> we need to produce more liquid natural gas in the united states so we can ship it to europe so we can wean them, the dirty russian natural gas,
we need to ship our liquid natural gas to india to help them clean up their air and if we are serious about addressing global climate change that is where we need to put our bang for our buck's. lauren: the it ministration got blowback for letting us reserves be shipped overseas to our adversaries, but not put export controls on the sale, the department of energy spokesperson telling fox business they cannot dictate where the oil goes once they sell it to someone but i have had sources that work at the department of energy under past administrations that they absolutely can put stipulations on these sales. stuart: senators met on capitol hill to discuss the deadly fentanyl crisis in america. china and mexico took center stage in those hearings. senator bill cassidy and medical doctor joins me now.
what i don't understand is why xavier becerra has done nothing about fentanyl and he is the health and human services secretary. what is going on? >> reporter: not sure xavier is in washington dc. i say that because if this is an emergency, 100,000 americans who died last year, all hands should be on deck at their desk in plummeting the program, and bringing new programs to congress, and squashing the epidemic of debt. and and they increased expansion of heavy packages but that is taking a while to pullman to build up the new facilities. across the border is not just
people taken across the border but fentanyl and other drugs flooding as consequence of biden administration like open border policy. stuart: let me look at inflation. in a report says 64% of us have altered our driving habits or lifestyle in the last few months because of inflation. what are you hearing in louisiana? >> why doesn't president biden come live like a real person? great we are paying less for gas not knowing we are paying less for gas because they are not driving so there's demand disruption. if you're in a 15-year-old pickup truck you are not driving because you don't want an electric vehicle but you can't afford a new car and for them to tout the solution of electric vehicles is ignoring the reality most americans have. the husband or wife has to drive to work and may drive 45 minutes back in an older vehicle.
these gas prices are punishing the american people. stuart: are the people of louisiana losing ground? >> many are. this is there utilities, grocery prices, people who use to eat steak are now eating hamburger, if you're eating hamburger you are eating hot dogs, readjusting their lifestyle down and they are frustrated and looking for answers. stuart: senator bill cassidy of louisiana, medical doctor, thanks for being with us. customs and border patrol agents in arizona made a massive drug bust. what did they find? lauren: black tar heroin, 320,000 fentanyl pills and other drugs, they stuffed these into the gap -- the gas tank of

produce, held off, giving price increases passing them along. what he found, into the restaurants, consumers fairly resilient. talking about coke and mcdonald's, people making a big deal, look at coke, huge company, mcdonald's, huge company, they are hanging in there all right and the consumer's resilience will hurt the consumer because people will raise prices. lauren: we are paying for experiences. stuart: some consumers, you make $100,000 a year, you could manage 8% inflation if you have a ton of money for all the covid payments, low income people have got to change.

the pacific northwest our heatwave tends to happen around this time. this is not unusual, it's not out of the blue. we knew it was coming. we knew it was going to last 4 or 5 days, that's what all the modeling suggests. i'm not saying climate change isn't an actual thing, clearly there are portions of the year we are seeing a rise in temperature we've not yet seen or have not normally seen and are trying to figure out how much of that is due specifically to man-made events but this idea that every time you got a thunderstorm it is climate change, every time it gets to 90 °, that is not the case. stuart: would you make a link between extreme weather and we have had some extreme weather events, would you make a link between extreme weather and climate change, any kind of link? >> you can but just not in every instance. there are times we have an omelette. there are times we see trends.
when you see a trend you can point to this and say this is tied to climate change, let's look at what the historical data says but there other times you can say it is summer and it gets hot around this time. traditionally around this exact date we see this kind of weather year after year and no one including the governor is saying last year it was harder at this time. stuart: i remember 40 years ago when i first moved to new jersey we had a day it went up to 105 degrees, that was 40 years ago, we never heard of climate change or global warming then. thank you very much. the market still in the green, douse up 130, nasdaq up 274. quick check of the 10 year treasury, the yield down to 2. 77%. the price of gold dripping lower, $17.32 an ounce, bitcoin holding steady at 21,400.

week, my largest holdings, a lot of portfolio managers, you see microsoft come out with a warning a month ago, google came out with layoffs announcement and we can -- a week or two ago. a lot of positivity within. microsoft is positive and that the tailwind, people are feeding off of that and you see some portfolio managers reposition. for alphabet it got hit with snap news last week. there at revenue was not as low as anticipated so it is a big surprise, i think there are great tailwinds. shopify was down 15%, due to the layout disappointing earnings, traded down 6% premarket and is up 5%.
and it is a turning point. stuart: that is good stuff. that's a turning point. looking at the movers, twitter -- lauren: office space in san francisco, and shareholders are set to vote, to take the company private september 13th. stuart: what about spirit? lauren: shareholders will vote on frontier airlines. if they say no that paves the way for a vote on the competing officer. after the bell, they are up
4.8%. >> they will post their biggest ever drop in daily active users, $1.6 billion and we will see. they are going off microsoft, maybe things got bad and they announced they are cutting down the dating platform. it was an experiment and they are shutting it. stuart: president biden will speak to xi jinping tomorrow. speaker pelosi has visited taiwan on top of the agenda. the white house won't say we are in a recession but what about regular folks? >> we are in a recession. >> absolutely we are in a recession. >> i believe we are in a recession. stuart: is the white house

300 points, 295, show me t-mobile, they raise their subscriber growth forecast for the second time this year, the lower cost cell phone plans and google earnings revealed youtube with post pandemic problems. >> one of the strongest units and at revenue growth slowing at the slowest in 2019. these are tough comparisons, what did everybody do during lockdown 24 hours a day. stuart: somebody else's subscription, hooked on youtube because it is free. they are reconsidering whether
they strict covered travel rules, and was it worth it? >> we saw these pictures from mill lan, people on trolleys, high death rate. having travel restrictions made sense and america in some ways harsher than we were. the first few weeks it did make sense, didn't know what was coming down the track and it was frightening. a few months in, a very informant -- unpleasant form of flu. the average age of death was 83 years old which is higher than average life expectancy. my criticism would be that
thereafter we kept these rules in place for an inordinate amount of time damaging tourism, damaging families, being able to see each other and damaging business and in particular the restrictions lasted longer than anywhere else and it is worth remembering and reminding fox business viewers the uk is still the biggest foreign investor in the uk and the usa is the biggest investor the other way around. we have a lot of mutuality between our countries. doesn't matter how good zoom or skype, nothing works quite like sliding to new york and having a face-to-face meeting. stuart: used to be great on concorde which could fly 3 hours and fly back in 3 hours in one day but over here we are intrigued at the new prime minister coming along.

the usa but i suspect she will find all the while president biden is in the white house it will be difficult do that free trade deal by who doesn't like the brits. stuart: is that really it? biden doesn't like the brits so he won't do a trade deal? is it that simple? >> biden and pelosi have this hangup about ireland, a misreading of the history of the united kingdom and ireland, they are pro dublin, anti-london they held that prejudice through their entire political careers, nothing will change. when trump was president we could have signed that deal, the conservative party took years to sort brexit out but once a republican is back in the white house which i don't know about you i think is increasingly likely given what is happening in the states i'm confident we can do that. stuart: boris johnson was a failure, he just wasn't a
conservative. >> boris johnson is a larger-than-life personality, entertaining, amusing, passionate, a great writer and a bumbling speaker but ultimately elected as a conservative, governed as a liberal, he didn't tell the truth and wasted, blown the biggest conservative majority since margaret thatcher, a bit of a shakespearean tragedy because on paper he should have been really good, sadly it ended in failure. stuart: nigel farage. the white house is were not in a recession. what is everybody else saying? >> feels like we are and what the regular person says, the voter might the more important. here you go. >> i think we are in a recession. interest rates have gone up. the economy is slowing down,

something and the question is whether biden will stand up to that or not. stuart: what do you think? >> i don't know. when biden is on his own he says pretty good things about taiwan, he said that to george stephanopoulos, anderson dupre but we've seen his white house walk back is comments which shows disarray in the biden administration. don't know how this will turn out. stuart: there are reports from congress that shows china has been secretly targeting the federal reserve for more than a decade. they are going for our financial jugular. >> that should not be a surprise. what should be a surprise, the leaders of the federal reserve and american leaders have not defended us. it's clear what china wants to do, they say it in public, we

message to the american companies to keep their factories in china because the administration won't do anything to protect american manufacturing. biden can do that but it would not be good for the american worker, great for the chinese worker and biden is the best friend of chinese workers. stuart: always good on the point. we hope to see you again soon. look at this, coming up on 11:55, time for the wednesday trivia question. pretty good question. where is the world's oldest forest? cairo is in new york state? tasmania as in australia? i have two grandsons in the audience, your coach about, japan, or consume oh in kenya. where is the world's oldest forest? don't google it. we have the right answer after this?
