1:01 pm
at $470 million, you're looking at close to $1.5 billion up for grabs. so of course, you have these lovely smiling people behind me. sir, you bought your ticket? >> no speak english. >> so he got a ticket. he hopes he wins. every person that walks into this store has been buying tickets what are the odds? what are the odds of winning the powerball and the megamillion? 1 in 88 quadrillion. if you focused on the megami megamillion, you're more likely to hit a royal flush in power or get attacked by a shark in ocean. your odds are not great. are you buying a ticket? >> i am. >> what would you do with the money? >> i would. i would have so many money.
1:02 pm
i don't know where to begin. >> after federal taxes, state taxes and city taxes, you'd only be able to take $565 million is that okay? >> that's good. that's fine. >> we have many people still happy. one woman said she was palpatating because she was buying the ticket. >> neil: so you have the megamillions, better than a billion and the powerball over $400 million. so the odds again you said of winning both of those? >> 1 in 88 quadrillion. >> neil: wow. >> do you know how many zeros that is? >> it's a lot. >> exactly. >> neil: all right. i better tell hannity that. he has no idea. thank you very much, kristina. it's stunning. so what do you do? you know the drill and you know
1:03 pm
the odds. but record numbers are getting into this. let's get the read from radio host mike gunsleman and jillian from the "wall street journal." jillian, we begin with you. kristina interviewed a lot of people. some were spending hundreds. a lot of people it's everything. >> yeah, the clear winner here is the govern. a lot of tax money going to this. but yeah -- >> neil: stewart varney hates that. he will not participate. he's so cheap. he will not participate because half is going to the government. >> i'm not going to get one either. i like my life the way it is. i think if i got a lottery ticket, not a lot would change. >> what? >> it comes with a ton of drama. >> what do you mean? >> i like my apartment. i like my job. >> you can buy the building. >> many buildings in fact.
1:04 pm
>> i'm set. i am set. i don't need -- i don't have $100 to waste but i had $2 each. >> neil: what do you say? >> i don't think a lot of young people are because it's a billion dollars. nobody has won since july. first of all, you have to buy lottery tickets with cash. what is cash? i don't have cash. it's auld cards. less young people are buying it. people come out because it's an event. >> neil: somebody wins. in all the time -- >> it's great for me. i can't afford to play a lot of the time. i'm set. for anybody that says winning that money would be terrible, you'd be an idiot. it would be awesome. i'll tell you when i win. >> i don't know what the odds are. one time i went to a baseball game and struck up a conversation and turns out he was a lottery winner and tell you about the family drama and the conflict. i'll avoid it.
1:05 pm
>> neil: most places you have to go public. >> that is changing. there was a court case in new hampshire. they wanted to remain anonymous. >> neil: i remember that. if you won, if you played and won, apparently you didn't have -- $2. i don't know what the deal is. would you be okay with like the world knowing? >> no, i would not be. i don't want this guy to know -- >> the first rule of winning is change your cell phone number. get a good lawyer. >> neil: a lot -- this is an unusual case. it's impossible to lose this amount of money. but mike tyson did. a lot of lotto winners do go broke, right? >> yeah. it's interesting. you can take the pay out up front or get it gradually. it's an instant gratification thing. i like to see it come with a bun of financial advise to make this sustainable for your family. >> neil: a lot of people
1:06 pm
volunteering to do that. that's the problem. a lot of moochers come in. how would you handle moochers or friends or people -- >> i would -- like i said, change the numbers. they're dead to me. it's all mine. i'd be a good millionaire. i would take care of some people. i'd take care of you. >> neil: so nice of you. do you get more excited when the numbers are big? >> there's no doubt people are talking about it because nobody has won and it's been going on over a week plus and it's viral. people that don't talk about it are talking about it because it's fun. it's $2. why not? talk about it online and instagram and et cetera. >> $1 billion. i don't can wrap their mind about what that means. >> neil: would in of you be any difference? >> entirely different. i would act completely different. anybody that says otherwise is lying. we're talking about $500 million overnight. i'd be a better version.
1:07 pm
>> neil: that's why jillian doesn't want anything to do with it. >> i'm humble. i don't know if you know anything about that. >> neil: there's a possibility we don't get a winner. >> it's true. >> neil: then automatically goes up probably another quarter of a billion. >> and we'll be back here talking about it. >> neil: would you come back in? >> count me in. >> neil: if you won, would you go back to work? >> i would. >> neil: you would? i don't believe it. >> i would take a nice vacation. but i would. >> neil: put up with the nonsense and all of that -- not that that happens. but you would go through all of that? >> yeah. i love it. >> neil: i was doing some research for this. it happens. a lot of the people that say they go back to work, they're not there very long. usually less than a year. >> has to be awkward. >> and it's proportionate to the amount of money they win. if you win a lot, and you say you go back to work, you're out
1:08 pm
there. the less you win, you might hang on longer. >> it's hard to mentally think about compensation the same way if you have all of this money and you show up, what am i doing? >> hopefully you're doing it for your enjoyment. like that much money, especially if you haven't earned it, it's hard to appreciate it and make the same choices -- >> neil: debby downer here. >> there's a reason you're there and we're here. >> show me the money! >> neil: you would be corrupt. [laughter] >> i don't want that temptation. >> neil: that's a worthy goal. >> i'm going to be a nice version of me. >> neil: i think you would. all right, guys. best of luck. i know you're not getting involved. would that be great? that's what i'm talking about. >> show me the money. >> neil: i am a certified financial planner. all right. let's take a look. you kind of were looking at that
1:09 pm
today at the corner of wall and broad. i had a feeling that any of these potential winners wouldn't be focusing on day to day movements in the dow. a lot of this occurs on the anniversary of the 31st anniversary before any of these people were born of the 1987 stock market crash when people thought we wouldn't come back and we did. we fell and came back after that and fell, but we were up, whether you were participating in the lottery or not. more after this. nd service. with such a long history, it's easy to trust geico! thank you todd. it's not just easy. it's-being-a-master-of-hypnotism easy. hey, i got your text- sleep! doug, when i snap my fingers you're going to clean my gutters. ooh i should clean your gutters! great idea. it's not just easy. it's geico easy. todd, you will go make me a frittata.

>> neil: it's a bigger caravan. a caravan of migrants bound or the the united states, tearing down a border gate in guatemala. mike pompeo is in mexico to get the mexicans to vol this or shut it down.
1:13 pm
no indication that they made much progress. griff, are they prepared for this? >> neil, i'm not sure they're ready for that caravan to get here in texas. behind me, the processing center, they had a busy day. more than 60 plus arrests. i was there for most of them. the scene there on the mexico guatemala border is just chaos. the massive caravan of migrants, mostly from honduras charges bridges, scaling fences to get there. the officials here keeping a close eye on the talks with secretary of state mike pompeo and the progress we're making, the officials here say they're very encouraged by what is unprecedented cooperation with the mexican officials. as you can see, the problem is unfolding there all day long on mexico guatemala border and surely heading for this border here. this is the rgv, rio grande valley sector. the single busiest in the
1:14 pm
u.s.-mexico border. this day, it has an overwhelming spike of numbers before the caravan gets here. that i have on average, neil, more than 641 illegal arrests a day. it's overwhelming. about half of them are made up of family units of which they're seeing in this area 300% increase from last year. overall, we had more than 16,000 family members units arrested just last month. that is an 80% increase from july when the administration reverses zero tolerance policy. the reason being is that the cartels see our detention centers are full as a driver, as an incentive for them to come. it's the same reason why that caravan of migrants is driving so hard to get across the mexican border and ultimately up here and try to end up in the
1:15 pm
processing center behind us here in mccowan. neil? >> griff jenkins, thanks very much. following this closely as the caravan makes its way here. the question is how many of those that are in that caravan will be at the u.s. border. remember in the case of the last one, it dribbled down to quite a smaller number. we'll be watching it. meantime, turkey's foreign minister is saying his country will share evidence with the world on the killing of that journalist. if that is the case, what is the wait and what is the president doing to respond? after this.

1:18 pm
>> he's not such a tough guy when he has to deal with his billionaire friends in saudi
1:19 pm
arabia who just tortured and murdered a courageous journalist. not such a tough guy on that one. >> neil: all right. that's bernie sanders in indiana today. taking a swipe at the president over this entire saudi crisis. earlier on, promises there would be severe consequences with the saudis. he said it does look like the journalist is dead. so the fact is, what do we do about that in john roberts with more. >> remains to be seen what we do about it. we heard from the president for about 15 minutes about water being preserved in the western part of the united states. the president said it's too early to tell what the united states might do. we have yet to get fully to the bottom of this investigation to find out the who, what, why, when and where of this as the
1:20 pm
president put it. he did said he's troubled by what he heres. listen here. >> something that we don't like. it's very serious stuff. we're going to get to the bottom of it. >> in terms of what the white house might do, the president said he would have his recommendations. as he did in the kavanaugh case where he left it up to congress to determine the way forward, he said he would do that in this case as well. listen here. >> we'll very much listen to what congress has to say. they feel very strongly about it also. so i'll be doing this with congress. >> president trump didn't have much to say about the investigation himself. but there's been some interesting movement. there's reports that the very beginning, king salman didn't know much ant it but when he learned more, he became troubled that this would reflect very badly on saudi arabia. so he dispatched one of his
1:21 pm
closest advisers, the governor of mecca, prince al faisal to negotiate with the turks about the way forward in the negotiation. sidelines mohammed bin salman, the crown prince. dad stepped in and said thanks, son, i'm going to handle this. also a development here at the white house. steve mnuchin said that he's going to cancel his appearance at the so-called davos in the desert investment in riyadh. however, mnuchin still will be going to a national security financing conference that will take place in riyadh. the united states has had a long strategic relationship with saudi arabia. saudi arabia is on the forefront of the fight against terror and crucial in trying to rein in iran. so steve mnuchin will go to that security conference. folks here say going to a security conference is all about financing, to combat terrorism
1:22 pm
and rein in i ran is a lot different than the finance conference. >> neil: and the search for the missing journalist is extending outside istanbul. benjamin hall has the latest. >> hi, neil, it's been 17 days since khaishoggi went missing. now we're hearing from the foreign minister that we get the details and final results of the investigation. they said they have to wait for a few more lab tests to come through. as you said sadly, the search seems to have moved on now to khaishoggi's body. they're stretching outside of istanbul to see if they can find where that may have been placed. turkish police search ago nearby forest where officials say his body has been disposed of. also they're looking for farmland near the city where one of the suspects had a house.
1:23 pm
two of the vehicles allegedly traveled from the consulate according to the gps, they moved to those parts of the country. this moment, most of the evidence still hinges on the infamous audio tapes which turkish authorities claim to have of khaishoggi's murder. despite repeated calls to release them, they haven't done so. yesterday abc news said secretary of state pompeo had been given access to the grew some recording, something that he quickly denied saying i've heard no tape, i've seen no transcripts. indeed he went on to say "this is wrong to do to the fiance of khaishoggi. this is a very serious matter that we're working on diligently and so to put out headlines that are factually false does no one any good." as far as the saudi side of the investigation, there's a number of efforts to claim that system of the suspects weren't even in turkey at the time of khaishoggi's disappearance. in people believe the saudi
1:24 pm
investigation will not be neutral. at the same time, turkey has an important role here and it suitses them to drive saudi arabia away from the u.s. and the way they leaked information raises eyebrows. the turkish investigation will be released soon and we hope to have more in the coming days. neil? >> neil: thanks, benjamin. with us now, former u.s. army helicopter pilot, amber smith. looking at defense stocks that came back today, oil relatively stable, if i would read the market's impression, it's going to be a muted response. whatever happens will not jeopardize our relations. whatever people think of that politically from a financial standpoint, that's just the way it's going to be. what do you think? >> i hope that is the case. there is some risk involved here. and that is the u.s.-saudi
1:25 pm
strategic alliance. it will survive this, which is why i feel like there won't be that much issue within the markets long-term. not just for economic and oil and military sales issues but for overall the stability that saudi arabia provides in one of the most volatile regions in the world. there's no one else -- i can't emphasize enough how iran would benefit from any sort of severed or even strained relationship between the united states and saudi arabia. we would see a power scale tip in favor of iran and we cannot do that. >> neil: amber, i'm wondering what you make -- it's a different case. last night when the president was in montana, he praised on the congressman that assaulted journalist and commanded the body slam. his timing wasn't good. what did you think of that? >> the timing was not great.
1:26 pm
in this country, we value the freedom of the press. we value journalists and we know how dangerous their jobs is. they put themselves in harms way every day -- >> neil: you think the president believes that? >> i think the president does. i think that in these rallies, he's on the campaign trail, he tries to, you know, energize the crowd and unfortunately he said something that was super bad timing with everything that we're seeing out of the saudi consulate in istanbul. i think the president respects the first amendment and the freedom of the press. it was worded poorly in my opinion. >> neil: maybe so. he did go out of his way to talk about and commending this particular congressman that, you know, was penalized for this move. leaving that out of it, i wonder because a lot of people have looked at this and what punishment the president might
1:27 pm
want out of the saudis. besides the financial relationship, it doesn't bother him that much. what do you think of that? >> well, i think that's what the president wants to do he wants to ensure that the very important strategic alliance with saudi arabia remains. so like he said, he does want to wait and see what the outcome of the investigations are. i think we'll see two extremely different outcomes of the investigation from the saudis and from turkey. he does want to wait and see what comes out of it. before making any decisions, have all the information forwar whole with congress in terms wi
1:28 pm
being cleared of all wrong doing of this issue. i think we'll see them blame some rogue saudis that went off on their own. we've seen records that they may be looking to pinpoint this on one of their intelligence chiefs. so that's what i think that we're going to see it's pinned on, an individual or a few people that did some wrong doing on their own so they with move forward with mbs eventually moving into power. >> neil: real quickly, we're told the saudis have been lacking at expanding oil shipments to china. china might make up for the slack that we provide. what do you make of that? >> absolutely. that's the reason that -- when the united states leads or that
1:29 pm
relationship changes with saudi arabia, russia is looking to step, in china looks to step in. even with the arms sales, when we're not filling those sort of relationship duties with saudi arabia, we're going to see the other super powers in the world stepping in to do so. >> neil: thanks, amber. served our country very honorly and bravely. where were you 31 years ago today? i know where why was. covering one of the worst market drops we had ever seen. you'd have to go back to 1929. it was a scary time. i'm not just talking about my hair. ♪motorcycle revving ♪ motorcycle revving ♪motorcycle revving ♪ motorcycle revving ♪ no matter who rides point, ♪ there are over 10,000 allstate agents riding sweep. ♪♪

[laughter] i think my toupee today is much better. what the heck? they do this to remind me. you've aged, neil. that was 31 years ago today.
1:34 pm
i remember it well. i remember the press coverage. the dow lost about a quarter of its value. it would be awhile before we came back. through one crisis after another, somehow we do come back. that's not to say i didn't want to mislead people, stocks go up and down but over time they're a good bet. a read on that with susan li and what we learned. >> i thought you looked great. from the ashes of destruction grows opportunity. black monday goes to historical context. it was the worst days. pretty stunning. lost 22% of its value in one session. the worst is the great depression of 1929 when the stock market lost 12%. we're were down 7.9% on october

1:37 pm
interest rates. i'm holding back cash. i would invest that cash in stocks two or three years ago. i'm going to wait right now. the economy is strong. the markets is strong. we've had six interest rate increases since president trump took office. can you imagine in the bomb era if that happened? we would have tanked. the market is still up 40% with the recent dips. we have great underlying fundamentals and if it dips, it's a good time to buy. >> neil: also produce as lot of panic. in the middle of that, i can remember in 87, a lot of people telling me i'm getting out, i'm getting out. i can't deal with this. crazy, crazy. if you waited it out, as in time, the younger you are, the more you can wait. what do you tell folks?
1:38 pm
>> one thing back in -- i was a young later at the time. >> neil: i wasn't even born. office hologram. >> my hair looked more like yours than it does today. the people affected by that and the panic at that time were people whose parents had lived through the great depression and probably had been around in 1928. so that was more of a realistic thing for them than maybe it is for us today. today when the stock market goes down, whether it's my kids that call or friends that call, i say if it's down, you have a stock that you like a stock you think is going to perform well over time, now is the time to buy it. when it goes down, i'm looking at amazon. amazon is a great company to own. if it dips -- >> neil: there's some places -- of course, you came from c.k. restaurants. people have to eat. safe areas to invest. are you worried a market run up so far so fast by natural order of things correct?
1:39 pm
>> there could be a correction. if there is, it would be a time to buy, not a time to panic. i do think the bigger threat is that interest rates will pull money out, money that would have created demand for stocks there no longer be creating the demand. that's a bigger concern. should be a concern to the feds and certainly a concern to the presidents and it's a market, t back 31 years ago, any lessons from that? >> it's a totally different marketplace per se. we obviously have technology now. that day was caused by new measures that were put on to protect the market against
1:40 pm
volatility. but back then, right now we've seen sell-offs for similar reasons. the last couple weeks. the spike in the field. they're smoother and orderly. we were down 1,300 points last week. it was completely orderly. back in the day, i was a clerk at cowan in 87. there was sheer panic on the floor at the time. i remember having stacks of orders. you go in the stocks, basically they would put the buyers on one side, sellers on the other. we add up how many showers to still and it collapsed and kept happening over and over over a number of hours. if you look at that quote, it's a wonderful photo at the end of the day. you'll see digital equipment down 46 and proctor down 17. we have not seen anything like that since. you know, we're talking percentage-wise, by far the biggest ones. so for us today as the gentleman just said, today if we do have a
1:41 pm
correction, if you want to call last week a small correction, these are more buying opportunities than by any means panic mode. >> neil: so what happened last week, this week, even today, is not like that. >> not by any stretch. stocks were trading down three, four, five points at a click. it was panic. firms went out of business. stocks literally -- it was kind of like a stock market movie in a way. there was just fury, panic, anxiety. screaming and yelling. a different place. >> neil: peter, great talking with you. thank you. >> always a pleasure. >> neil: thanks. another thing that was good about the 87 crash at the time, it didn't occur in an election year. technically the gyrating market this year is. albeit in a mid-term and nothing like that. so does that make a difference?

holding on to the house. it might be slightly better than that it's an uphill fight. the way to look at this is let's take the political report numbers. they have 208 seats that are either lean likely or solid democrat and 196 seats for republicans that are lean likely or solid republican, which means this will come down to 31 toss-up seats. one is a democrat held seat, 29 are republicans. the democrats would have to take a third of those seats and the republicans would have to take better than 2/3s in order to maintain control of the house. so you can see the democrats have an advantage. easier to get there. but not a lock. recent news has indicated that some of those seats that are considered toss-up might be in better shape for republicans than had been thought in october or september. >> neil: i was hearing about a lot of those races, not all, but many many within four or five
1:47 pm
points. let's say the republicans hang on to the house, lose seats but hang on to the house. that is not something that is generally expected. what do you think? >> well, the parties have held on to the house, could control the house in the first mid determine after they elect a president. but they generally almost always lose seats. the question is how many. only in 2002, 1998 and 1934 has the white house party-to-party in power failed to lose seats. the question is how many. the democrats need to pick up 23. i think this is going to be settled by a relatively small number of votes in a relatively large number of seats. election night, we may not even know. there's going to be four or five seats in california that determine whose controls the house and they may not be settled for several days. again, the news recently has
1:48 pm
been for republicans pretty good. let me give you a couple examples. north carolina 13, ted bud. ohio, steve shabbot. troy balderson. virginia 2, scott taylor. florida 25, carlos carbella. these are all seats that are suggesting that the republican is in the lead and pulling away. same thing in open seats. the democrats have pulled out of minnesota 8 because people stauv, the republican candidate is so strongly there. >> neil: when you look at the late-breaking issues that might influence this race, the caravan comes to mind. the secretary of state speaking with reporters in mexico city to try to get the mexicans on board.
1:49 pm
saudi arabia. what is galvanizing folks? >> healthcare and the economy are driving the big issue. for democrats and for independents, the question is how strongly do you feel about having a check and a balance on president trump. but yeah, look, in the final stages of a campaign, when you have so many races close, people's reaction of handling the crisis with mexico or handling of the problem with the death of an american green card holder in a turkish consulate looks like at the hands of a saudi hit squad, all of these things have an impact. the strongest the president looks, the more he looks presidential, the more he looks like he is solving problems and stopping bad things from happening and encouraging good things to go forward, the better off for his party because again, we're going to get down to a small number of votes. my suspicious is that the caravan coming up from guatemala has the potential to be a plus for the republicans if handled right by the administration. but if we have a lot of parents and children being separated at
1:50 pm
the borders, that could kindle some feelings among independents that we saw earlier in the year that would not be helpful. >> neil: karl rove, thanks. >> thank you. >> neil: what the mexicans have promised the secretary of state they'll do to avoid a repeat of that after this. all money managers might seem the same, but some give their clients cookie cutter portfolios. fisher investments tailors portfolios to your goals and needs. some only call when they have something to sell. fisher calls regularly so you stay informed. and while some advisors are happy to earn commissions whether you do well or not. fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management.

>> neil: all right. we're confident this go-round that the mexican government is working on a plan to deal with this caravan and help us out on this if it gets to the u.s.-mexican border as it seems to be. vanessa newman is on that. it's open-ended. we have a switch in governments in december. the new left-leaning government. what can we anticipate from the
1:54 pm
mexicans? >> well, he did market himself as being liftist, want to -- he wants to allow certain drug use, legalize certain drugs business hi country is racked by violence from the drug cartels what is interesting, he's proven himself to be much more of a pragmatist and not anti-trump. he made the u.s. trade deal earlier than the canadians. and by offering to give it to the u.n., it gives president trump a convenient sort of out, because if it goes wrong, you can blame the u.n. neither country really has to take the fall-out for that it's a very practical decision and that's what we can expect from amlo when he's sworn in. >> neil: vanessa, do we know where the caravan participants
1:55 pm
are from? is it a lot of countries or what? >> now the predominant of immigrants are otms, other than mexicans, which is hondurans people from guatemala and nicaragua. they're corrupt and weak in governance because they have been awash with the drug cartels. the u.s. and the u.s. military has provided a lot of providence to strengthen their government to stem the flow. the problem is, this is a drug cartel business as well. even though the situation is improving in those countries thanks to u.s. investment, you still have the drug cartels
1:56 pm
encouraging people to come to the u.s. for these, it's money and business. >> neil: feels like it's coordinated. >> exactly. the drug cartels are highly coordinated. very effective. so while their main business is arguably -- i was going to say the main business is drugs but there's a lot of studies the main business is people smuggling now. you try to get them across, you make more money off of people and if they fail, they try again so they can keep building the same family over and over again. so they cause the problem at the home country, at the point of origin where they have violence and gang and drug traffickers and then they say we'll take you to the u.s. pay us. >> neil: thanks, vanessa. >> thank you. >> neil: fall out from that after this.
