6:01 am
♪ ♪ >> good morning, everybody, big show this morning, joining the conversation capitalist founder jonathan honan is here, benchmark managing partner kevin kelly, great to see everybody. >> thank you. maria: breaking news of the morning, uk supreme court delivering blow to prime minister boris johnson, supreme court ruling suspending parliament was unlawful, that's opening the door to more pushback on his plans to take britain out of the european union, your reaction, kevin. >> yeah, this is fascinating, he was actually going for a no-deal brexit by october 31st because the european union hasn't really been working with the uk on trying to leave, they have been in stalemate for a long time, he has actually informed the queen of this, of his plans and she didn't push back on him and so now it's going to be hard to
6:02 am
see, i mean, it took them a long time to get article 50 done where they deliver to the european union that they. >> going to leave, you know what, october 31st looks like the deadline, they're not going to meet a no-deal brexit. maria: you wonder what it means for markets. >> definitely, when you look at boris johnson, if we follow the rules nothing is ever going to change and nothing will happen, this is something that will not bow to pressure to resign over this, i think he will keep pushing forward. i think the markets will look at that and think it's a positive sign even though there's a little bit of, you know, -- >> kind of a missed opportunity, the ability to exercise and lead european union and perhaps trading block hasn't been realized look at ewu, it was below 1890's, the pound has been decimated, thomas cook also
6:03 am
went bankrupt this week. maria: so far not a major move in terms of european market, there's the british pound, we will be watching for developments as the breaking news take effect, u.s. markets have been strong pretty much throughout the morning, top story in new york, president trump speaking before the un general assembly today in new york city, expected to make a case for pressure to keep on pressure on iran as he blast impeachment for phone call with leader of ukraine, fox news garrett tenney, good morning to you. >> good morning, fox news has learned that the whistle blower who filed the complaint over the phone call did not have firsthand knowledge of it. a source familiar with the situation tells us in the complaint it's made clear that the whistleblower was not on the phone call and that the concerns are based on secondhand information, the individual learned after the fact.
6:04 am
one of the democrats' big concerns is that ahead of the july phone call the white house put a hold on $250 million in military aid to ukraine and that the president may have used that aid to try and pressure ukraine to investigate the son of former vice president joe biden, at the united nations monday president trump denied there was any quid pro quo and argued this is just the latest witch hunt by the democrats. >> did you tell the ukrainian leader that they would have the aid only if they investigated joe biden and his family? >> no, i didn't, i no i didn't. i didn't make a statement you have to do this or i'm not going to give you aid. everybody knows it, it's just a democrat witch hunt, here we go again. they failed with russia, they failed with recession, they failed with everything and now they are bringing this up. >> democrats are demanding access to the whistleblower complaint and to hear directly from the person who filed it but so far the administration is refusing to turn over a copy of
6:05 am
the complaint and that is prompting a fresh wave of democratic lawmakers who were on the fence of impeachment to come out in support of it. in the washington op-ed 7 freshmen democrat come from swing districts if president trump he should be impeached. >> how long must we wait for our republican colleagues to rise up to their responsibilities to the constitution to separation of powers into rule of law when president trump braisingly violates that law. >> all of this most certainly come up on thursday when national intelligence is scheduled to testify on capitol hill this afternoon, though, fox news has learned the house democratic caucus will meet to discuss the ukraine phone call and impeachment and condemn president trump over that phone call, maria.
6:06 am
maria: garrett, thank you very much, garrett tenney in washington, then there's china trade that you want to talk about as well, china is exempting certain companies that import u.s. soybeans according to bloomberg, we knew this was coming after secretary steven mnuchin took by surprise talking about the canceled u.s. farm visit, watch. >> that was our request to delay that. they are going to reschedule that at a different time. but that was -- that was our request. >> why was that our request? >> we didn't want confusion -- >> yeah, but i want them to buy farm products. >> there was no confusion -- they commit today buy agriculture. maria: yeah, we reported on this program and sunday morning futures that the u.s. had asked china not to go to the farms for this reason, your reaction.
6:07 am
>> it's frustrating no more than the farmers themselves, the president has been great advocate for farmers, we talked encouraging to buy exports, 2017-2018 exports have fallen about 50% so the president is doing duty to remedy some of the harm from the trade war and harming farmers and we see it time and time again even with some of the efforts, however, towards resolving trade conflict. maria: i don't see china lessening up because china needs our pork badly, they have 250 million dead pigs in china right now because of the swine flu, i mean, that to me is not a major effort and yet it does appear that they're talking, things are happening. >> i think the whole idea that china is using this as weapon to hit president trump, their whole plan is to wait out the presidency, whether it'll be for
6:08 am
another year, it'll be 4 years after that, there's not going to be any conciliatory tone stealing intellectual property. maria: that's right. >> this doesn't move the needle in that regard, taking supply chains especially for semiconductor and making localize, pull get away from u.s. intellectual property because there's the entity list, this is more par for the course where they will deflect, delay, they say they are coming over, they don't, we have seen this time and time again. maria: i agree with that, that's spot on, jackie, there's real big ticket issues, the theft of intellectual property and even the fentanyl coming into the country. >> hard ones to come to some sort of an agreement but even a partial deal, the small steps that have been made are positive and the fact that two sides are talking even if the farm was delayed, higher-level officials coming in october and i think something will get done.
6:09 am
maria: looks like both sides want a deal and we will see what the chinese are able to accept. they reneged back in april. japan foreign minister saying that his country has fully agreed on all trade talks with the u.s. after worries that a deal may have hit a snag over u.s. tariffs on chinese autos, the president has been clear on this, kevin, he wants a deal with japan, we don't know what this looks like in terms of tariffs on autos, the president is not wanting to forget on tariffs on at -- auto. >> it's em pertive for japan to have a deal with us especially on national security concerns because if we go back to north korean situation as well, the problem is that china is in every affair and trying to basically attack us on all sides whether it's soybeans, whether it's north korea, you name it, intellectual property. i think the japan situation, they never fought us on the initial tariffs, if you look at it, they bited their tongue and
6:10 am
negotiated with the president. >> we don't want a sunset provision that president trump could put tariffs back in place even the threat of tariffs and a lot of analysts are saying perhaps the u.s. would have been better staying in the tpp and doesn't look better than the final trade -- >> definitely a view on wall street on tpp and the more the president does deals with other nations, he's done south korea, japan is eminent, i don't know what else is in the cards, he has to do as many deals as possible in the region. >> especially for supply chains, listen, we know that if we start to hit tariffs on consumer goods it'll hit the american consumer hard, that's the 300 billion, you name it, we avoided the back to school shopping season getting hit with that, he needs to make the deals u.s. companies
6:11 am

maria: welcome back, markets are rallying this morning, shy of highs of the morning, we are waiting on economic data later this morning and this week including we have the second-quarter gdp, we are look ago head to potential trade agreement, joining us divine capital ceo daniel hughes, great to have you. what are you waiting for catalyst in the market, do you
6:21 am
think a china deal gets stocks up significantly like art has said? >> i'm waiting for third-quarter earnings, i think that that's really going to put the icing on the cake for this market. you know, we've seen revisions down of the 113 or 15 or so companies that actually do put guidance, 82 have revised down and analysts have revised down, if we see upticks from that i think the market will do well. maria: i don't know, are we going to see upticks, one of guests said they would be down but things pick up in the fourth quarter, is that what you're expecting? >> no i would like to see uptick and the fourth quarter will be interesting, we have interesting things happening and we have disconbobulation. >> instead of trading 16 and a
6:22 am
half earnings, 18 and a half 20 times earnings and is that sustainable in environment where cost of goods are going up due to the fact that one labor is going up, inflation is still rising, you also have cost of goods sold going up, we have the tariff situation happening, so that environment where you want to pay for earnings, i don't think so and i think that's why you've seen defensive sectors do well including consumer staples, utility, if you look at the market leadership yesterday. >> value is back in play, a lot of those names and big huge turnover into value stocks as well. >> by the way, kevin has the number one and number 2 best performing funds in category in real estate, you're up 42% and 38%, kevin. >> just proves in market that you want to be selective, want to be in areas and distribution centers, the growth of e-commerce as well as cell phone towers and data centers because we are using that, we don't want to be in office buildings, look
6:23 am
at wework, you need to pick and choose in the market, i'm curious where you want to position yourself in the market with -- >> first of all, there's really no place globally to go except the u.s. markets, i mean, that's why i think that sometimes you have to look away from here to emerging markets because you're not seeing the same kind of debt that they have compared to the duty and some more mature markets but it's a discount to the s&p growth that we are seeing here. maria: big rally in india the other day as they cut taxes. >> i'm wondering what you think about recession talk, i feel like people have backed that off a little bit, taking a wait-and-see approach and combined with the point that you made about earnings, if earnings were flat for the next quarter, would the markets would say that's good enough in this current environment? >> the repo markets is what concerns me, we saw giant spike after the fed actually said we are going to take rates down,
6:24 am
the repo markets exploded and that had a lot to do with disconbobulation, we had a huge issuance of u.s. debt which was a big thing as well and then you've got corporate taxes and there was a lot of reasons why that could have happened but it was a giant disconbobulation because the fed talks about giving liquidity to those markets on an ongoing basis which kind of looks like qe but they are calling something more organic. maria: interesting that consumer staples has been weak spot in the market and yet jonathan the consume certify pretty strong. >> whether macy's, even retail and hasn't been exact an even keel when it comes to stocks, moving forward, you mentioned repo market one of them, parts of the yield curve are still inverted and i don't want to get
6:25 am
too much in the weeds, historically that tends to manifest in recession not immediately but 20 months out, should investors still be concerned that the recession that the yield curve is forecasting it might not be here but it's coming? >> i think this is the most anticipated recession of all time. telling you when a recession is coming, that kind of thing leads you to believe that maybe this time is different, such a a refrain on wall street. the bond market doesn't lie, there will be a pullback that we have been anticipated but i think we see the markets at all-time high, s&p at all-time high and taking down rates to induce investment so that concerns me. maria: you want to own stocks right now? >> io always do stock but i always do. maria: do you want to lessen?
6:26 am
>> we are moving to value plays, stocks that have been overlooked, we are always in dividend companies, health care things like that that are on the move. maria: thank you daniel hughes, divine capital. the trump administration reportedly ending catch and release as soon as next week, colombian president evan duque weighing here onset, apple at home new tariff retrieve allows the technology giant to build mac book pros in the united states. back in a minute. ♪ (dramatic orchestra)

department will no longer go to border patrol facilities into the u.s. population while they await court hearings, families that claim asylum will be brought to méxico and others sent back to country of origin, joining me right now the president of colombia evan duque, mr. president, great to have you on the program. >> thank you so much, pleasure to be here. maria: have you seen impact on borders in america? >> not really, when we evaluate the migration policies throughout the hemisphere, each country has own policy and faces its own characteristics and in our case as we well know we have had migration shock from the venezuelan border, 1.4 million venezuelans that have left because of the dictateorship and we have been able to treat them well, but when you have such a migration shock it's hurtful. i think each country has the
6:32 am
right and the instruments to face each of the migration policies. maria: let me ask about venezuela, u.s. allies to pressure ven's president nicolás maduro, you're seeking sanctions on venezuela to protect the whole region, tell me about that, what do you want to see done? >> let me call things by name, maduro is response certifying terrorists, that's come payable from what we saw in the 2000's and terrorist regime supporting al-qaeda. the way he has brutalized his people is compared to what -- we call things by the name. we have to protect our borders. recipal assistance that was voted yesterday was a way in which countries recognized all the things that mad intro is --
6:33 am
maduro is doing to colombian, if you ever make an attack, the whole region will protect colombia that was very importan. maria: it sounds like you are in align with the united states as well. >> yes, we are, actually we share values and we share principles. the united states and colombia signed the interamerica democratic charter, we believe democracy has to be defended and maduro has independent powers, he has destroyed free media, any economic development in venezuela, you know, now people are so impoverish that people want to go out of the country, lost 4 million people in less than 3 years, in colombia supporters of venezuelan people but we have denounced brutality and brutalities. maria: have you been in touch with the administration on the u.s. of a side deal, partnership
6:34 am
with the united states. we have a trade deal, we have a close relationship and i think the trade deal that was signed in 2012 has been very important for both countries although we have a trade deficit with the united states, we have very important united states investment in colombia and in many sectors, and the rise of foreign direct investment in the last semester which was about 24%, one of the triggers of colombia's high-growth this year, we compared to latin america but grow 4.5%. colombia will grow 3% and that's world average. we have to keep investment going and i think the united states has been not only a strategic partner but we also see a relationship as relationship of trade and investment. maria: moving toward corporate tax cut, tell us about your tax legislation and impact. >> for many years what happened in colombia, the state wanted to spend more, every single time they pass shed to private
6:35 am
sector, so when i assumed office i said we have to make a change, we grew at 1.4%, we made the reform and removed aggregate taxation on small, medium-size corporations, out of that we got more investment. this year as i said we will grow about 3%, so the signals are clear, people can invest, colombia is seeing now sas the place in latin america to invest and at the same time we have deregulated many sectors, eliminated red tape and we have made very wise decisions on start-ups for example, zero income tax for the first 7 years for start-ups obviously they have to work on a minimum amount of investment and minimum amount of jobs to be created. so we are seeing that -- that dynamism in the economy and we are pretty happy. maria: isn't it interesting to what you're doing in terms of policies to encourage economic growth for everybody versus the
6:36 am
socialist and practices in venezuela? at one point venezuela was one of the most vibrant places in the world in terms of their economy. >> well, you know, when i compare colombia and venezuela obviously venezuela has dictatorship but i've always try today differentiate two types of leaders in latin america, demagogues who always, you know, promise the holy land and they end up having disasters and the are the ones who tell the people who are the right thing to do even if it's not popular at the beginning and in our case the transformation of colombia demonstrates through sound policies, lower deficits, more investment, supporting the private sector that we can make a difference. maria: thank you for that i want to talk about the environment, you're here at the un general assembly, we are the world is watching pictures of the amazon, you have the 16-year-old climate activist pointing the finger at world leaders, she blames them for ignoring climate change, here is what she said yesterday.
6:37 am
>> you have stolen my childhood with your empty words, people are suffering, people are dying. entire systems are collapsing, how dare you? maria: what a performance in terms of feelings blaming yourself and other leaders across the world, what do you say to that. >> first of all we called action on protecting forest and i attended the summit. speeches to actions, when you look at a country like colombia, represents 0.4% of global groan house's emissions, 6 chainest metrics in the world, 50% of the world and we have 35% of our continental soil as amazonnic, so those facts might say, well, colombia is not part of the problem, however, we all have to engage, that's the reason we are making an urgency action in
6:38 am
colombia, 10% of nonconventional renewables in 2022, we want to get to 20% in 2030, we have deforestation 17% in the first year, that's the reason we are push to go electric vehicle not only the bill but the implementation, that's why we are talking about civil passengers, we are making big efforts and as i side yesterday, climate change is biggest issue of our time, we must all work together and we must also involve the private sector, so let me give you one example, maria n colombia, we decided that you can deduct 50% in the corporate income tax any investment that you have made on energy efficiency and renewable energy, so we believe that the whole amount of policy that we have implemented are producing the impact, colombia is highly politted to the paris treatment and we really want to be carbon neutral by 2050.
6:39 am
maria: wow, do you think that the world is aligned against china and its practices when it comes to pollution in the air? >> i think the whole world must recognize that there are two realities, there was the reality of many countries that got to be developed without permit in environment and developing countries that has to right to develop but they have to do in harmony with the protection of the environment, no development can be reached today if you're affecting the environment, so i think the whole call not only to china, colombia, to any country in the world, in the g7 we need to harmonize with the protection on the environment, the protection on the forests, the protections on the oceans, now there's a world conscious and we are making a big bet that we train the kids in schools with the ethics -- maria: yeah. >> we all have to be conscious on how to act and protect the
6:40 am
environment. maria: you've obviously got a great grasp in growth and leading your country, what can you say to investors about corruption and those people who want to make sure that this is something that's watched and -- and handled and reversed? >> when i was -- when i was working at the bank in my previous life, i was a thinker that says corruption means monopoly and less transparency, what do we need to do, eliminate the monopolies of information inside government, eliminate so much discretionalty and increase the levels of transparency. what can be an instrumental tool, technology. so with block chain, technology, aggregated databases we can be more efficient so that everybody could scrutinize the way the state contract or how the state acts. so in colombia we have moved in that direction to have more transparency, we've also issued a bill so that every single high
6:41 am
official in government has to make public their taxes filings so that people can monitor and scrutinize how they have behaved, how their assets have behaved while in office and also what we want to do this year so to be able to block chain, to identify maybe on regular movements and when we see that there are people that are not filing the information they should and then more efficient to fight corruption and we are also promoting as colombia inside the u, in that we should have a global anticorruption court specifically to tackle the -- the interregional -- interregional corruption schemes like the ones we saw with some countries that created scandals in latin america. maria: really important insights from you, mr. president, thank you. >> maria, thank you so much. >> i hope you can visit us in
6:42 am
colombia. maria: i will love that, we will follow up, ivan duque, more trouble with juul. cheryl casone on read -- headlines. cheryl: investigation done by u.s. attorney's office of the northern district of california. the focus, though, unclear at this point, the fcc and the fda have been investigating marketing practice as another vaping-related death, this one in kansas, this brings national death toll with vaping-related illnesses to 9, maker of butt wiser has raced $5 billion in second attempt at ipo over at hong kong, there was a brewing 345 a share, that was at the low end of the estimated range, still giving budweiser market cap of $45 billion, this makes it one of the world's largest publicly listed brewers. then back here at home there was

6:48 am
i was about to introduce carlos goshn 2 weeks ago and while we were waiting for you call in for him to call in to do interview 20 agents stormed in the apartment and took him away again. >> exactly, the doorbell rang, 5:50 in the morning as if, you know, we are terrorists and they we wanted to take us by surprise and we opened the door, we were -- i jumped out of bed, i was in my pajamas, they came in, the first thing they were concerned because we had a camera in the apartment that the judge put as part of bail and they were concerned of cameras and we wanted to take it down because they didn't want the world to see what they were up to. maria: japanese officials will not allow carol goshn to speak to her husband carlos goshn, months since they have spoken, nissan did settle fraud charges with securities and exchange commission with $15 million over claims that it failed to disclose more than $140 million in goshn's salary, goshn agreed to pay $1 million in civil penalties, your thoughts kevin

unexplained at this point, i hope the fact that there was settlement with the sec could expedite the process and japan gets justice for this man. maria: we know that japan did not want nissan to merge with ronault that. >> they talked about sending money to son, there are articles on this that can help explain some of the charges. maria: all right, we will watch that, coming up now you are playing with google. technology giant launching phone gaming service to compete with apple, that's next after, stay with us.

maria: welcome back, google unveiling new gaming subscription service, lauren simonetti with all the details. lauren: let me tell you google play pass, you can play monument value or risk and get apps, apps like accuweather for $5 a month, subscription cost, 350 games and apps like i said only available on android, this will roll out this week, apple just a few days ago launched arcade gaming service, same 5 bucks, only games, no apps here and it's also -- so if they develop something for arcade on apple you can't get it through the app store, it's very specific and regimented. what i'm wondering so we are moving to subscription model for gaming too but in purchases are huge industry about $40 billion a year, you don't get that anymore, also no advertisements
6:55 am
which is good and no pay walls but they are losing revenue i suppose with the app purchases they will have to gain back with the subscription. maria: what a big business, i'm not surprised google gets into the business because it's something that's red hot, the hottest area of entertainment. >> they want to be the netflix of gaming. lauren: november. >> exactly, they've announced that, they are expecting 5g to be built out so they can deliver that, you to reduce the latency but you're bringing up a great point, who is going to win in all this, they have to be there and compete, some of it maybe losing money for them so they keep people in their own ecosystem. >> the winner is obviously the consumer, my god, i remember buying cartridges for 14, $15

trade tensions appear to be easing with china, china giving tariff waivers on u.s. so soybes and making a big purchase from american farmers. high level talks resume in washington in early october. the road ahead for ipos, wework is facing speed bump asss peloton gets ready to hit the market. my dog dusty's big tv debut today, she will be here and it's her big tv break. i'm going to bring in the experts as we look at a fresh pet food made in america and i introduce you to dusty. all those stories coming up this tuesday morning. joining me to break it down, fox news contributor jonathan hoenig is here, jackie deangeles is here, along with kevin kelly. great to see you this morning. >> great to be here. >> the dust buster coming on, we've got to figure out do we get her an instagram page. that's a tough question. she's too cute. >> maria is worried about her privacy. maria: i have a lot of pictures
7:02 am
of her on my instagram feed. i put some good ones this weekend on my instagram feed. somebody told me i should get her her own page. >> what happens if she becomes more popular than you? maria: that's probably going to happen. wait until you meet dusty. the top story this hour, president trump on the world stage, he's at the u.n. general assembly, the president will deliver remarks at the u.n. ga later this morning and it comes you a mid a backdrop of new controversy surrounding his july phone call with the ukrainian president. the white house freezing $250 million in military aid to ukraine before the call sparking new and fresh concerns that the president used the aid to pressure them into investigating joe biden's son. the house will discuss the phone call this afternoon and the possibility of impeachment. yesterday we had rudy guliani on, who said it was all baseless. joining us right now is the
7:03 am
former ambassador to cypress and foreign and international economic analyst, richard baucher. thank you for joining us. >> thanks, great to be here. maria: any thoughts on the criticism? is it impacting diplomatic efforts in any way on the president's side? >> sure, i think everybody's looking at it and that's the whole thing swirling around him. nobody's probably really going to raise it during the series of meetings in new york but everybody knows that's the backdrop and particularly knows that he's got something else on his mind right now. maria: what about the backdrop of what joe biden did? i mean, now the media is forced to focus on the fact that joe biden's son, hunter biden, did have partnerships with the ukraine, did travel with the former vice president on air force 2, to china, and then get $1.5 billion for his hedge fund. is that being spoken about? >> i assume some people are looking into it. but frankly, everybody around
7:04 am
the world is kind of used to prominent americans, people from prominent american man families getting into international business, going on boards of foreign corporations. i mean, some former ambassadors do it too. maria: meaning with a sitting vice president? >> it's not unusual to he see people -- maria: i believe joe biden, then vice president, was going to china to speak to the leadership of china and that's when hunter biden was on his plane. you're saying this is common place for a sitting vice president? >> i would say it's commonplace for prominent americans to join boards of foreign corporations. maria: that's not what we're talking about. we're talking about $1.5 billion paycheck to hunter bu biden from the chinese government. >> again, an american on a foreign corporation is going to get paid. so p i don't know the facts of exactly what happened in this case. it really -- the question is whether somebody uses their
7:05 am
office, the power of the office, the power of the united states, to get a personal gain for themselves or their family. maria: right. >> did joe biden do that? john. did donald trump or others do that? i don't know. maria: what i was referring to was the investment that the chinese government made in hunter biden's hedge fund which was $1.5 billion, just a couple weeks after he traveled on air force 2 with his father. but we want to talk about tehran tensions. that's why you joined us this morning. the leaders of britain, france and germany joining the u.s. and accusing tehran for the attacks on the sawed d saudi oil field. they say it's time for iran to begin talks fo for a longer term agreement. president trump weighed in. >> we have a lot of pressure on them right now, more pressure than they've ever had and iran knows that they're in a position that they're -- a lot of things are going to happen. let me put it this way. a lot of things are happening with respect to iran, a lot more
7:06 am
than you would know, a lot more than the media knows. a lot of things are happening. maria: richard, what's your response and take-you away on this iran, saudi conflict? >> well, first of all, the iranians are alienating their friends. the europeans still want to stick with the he dea deal but e feeling pressured by the iranian attack on saudi to do something. we have the sweet-tonged iranian foreign minister running around new york. we see french president macron is trying to work some kind of deal where he gets the u.s. to talk about a new deal with iran but he also pressures th iranias to open step uto step up and be. in the end, iran is in a bad position right now. they've lot lost a lot of sway with their european friends. >> richard, it's kevin kelly. my question to you is, you say they're in a tough position. i think they're in a position of power, given the fact they
7:07 am
filled the power vacuum in iraq. the reason we were able to defeat sigh si isis is because t military into iraq. they're trying to position from -- trying to negotiate from a position of power. germany, france and the u.s. don't want to send more troops to the middle east. what is your take with regard to the military aspect of iran and the saudi situation? >> i think the europeans are not about to send any more troops to the middle east, no matter what happens. they do need ensure the continuing flow of oil from the middle east. but they'd be happy to let the u.s. take care of the military aspects of that. >> richard, it's jonathan hoenig. the president is sending some additional troop, support troops but he's promised increased once again maximum pressure when it comes to sanctions and all the economic boycotts, et cetera. is that enough ultimately to keep us safe from whether it be drone attacks or attacks against allies in the middle east?
7:08 am
is economic sanctions going to be enough? >> i'm afraid not. we've had sanctions of one sort or another on iran since 1979 and it hasn't changed their behavior. it may have limited it a little bit. made them a little less ambitious. but the adas at this of something -- th the audasity of this shows they won't stop when it comes to pressure. if the u.s. and the europeans make an effort to get china, india and others on board, that might have some effect. the maximum pressure in the u.s. alone or the u.s. and a small group of countries clearly is not going to change iranian behavior. maria: let me move on to china. treasury secretary steven mnuchin taking president trump by surprise yesterday, talking about the chinese delegation and the canceled u.s. farm visit. take a listen. >> that was actually our request, they delayed that.
7:09 am
we didn't want there to be any confusion. they have started buying agriculture. they're reschedule that at a different time. the timing didn't work. that was purely our request. >> why was that our request, just out of curiosity? >> we didn't want confusion around the trade -- >> i want them to buy farm products. >> there is no confusion, we want them to buy agriculture, they committed to buy agriculture. maria: china is going to hold back the tariffs on soybeans and they're going to buy more agriculture. do you expect a deal between the two nations, richard? >> i do expect a he deal. the question is, when is it going to come? i mean, we're in the strange position where there is a deal on the table. everybody pretty much knows what it is. buying mission, opening some sectors, promises of further opening. but it seems like the president still wants to win and xi-jinping doesn't want to lose. so i think first we've got to get beyond the october 1st, 70th anniversary of the people's republic. xi-jinping's got to get beyond
7:10 am
that. he can't take anything that might shake his reputation before then. and then see how they can work out a deal, where it seems like both guys come out winners. but i win, you lose, is not going to work. they've got to both come out looking good. maria: coming up this morning, mark penn is here, energy secretary rick perry joins us and former citigroup chairman and ceo, sandy wes weil. a lot to come. stay with us. we're looking at the ipo market this morning. investors are waiting on peloton and endeavor among others. what's at stake. and we're looking at made in america. my puppy, dusty, is making her debut. as we check out the farmer's dog, a unique line of dog food. stay with us. ♪ who says, who says you're not

companies to obtain $70 million from banks and other financial institutions in a scheme that dated back to 2010. this scam temporarily left thousands of employees of small businesses without their paychecks. and then there is this. katherine powell who was in charge of walt disney world and disneyland theme parks is stepping down. her departure, the timing is interesting. it's coming after attendance of the company's massive new star wars themed expansions fell fairly flat for the company. they were watching shares of disney. the stock is up this morning. it's up almost 1%. but obviously the theory, maria, out there is people were so nervous about going to the star wars park because there was so much hype about it, that they didn't try to get tickets. now they're discounting the tickets. now i'm on it. >> i mean, this has been a big money maker for the stock actually, for disney itself. their theme parks is a big cog

7:22 am
muslim minorities, including ethnic wegers. tell us what's going on. >> since late 2016, china's government put in power a broad level official and he thought that the wegert issue had to be dealt with, with a final solution. there's a chinese term for that policy initiative and then he started building construction camps, concentration camps. and starting last august, the international community started paying attention with the u.n. panel alerting the world that they're up to a million being held in the camps. what the chinese government has been trying to do is to dilute weger's centuries old national identity by force, making them go through this indoctrine
7:23 am
nation programs through mass detention, surveillance and even making the kids to spy on their parents. so recently the assistant secretary of defense for indo pacific randy s shriver, there's been 3 million held in the concentration camps. maria: what you have going on is you have muslim whose want to practice their faith, tibetans who want to practice your faith, china says no, you want to learn the chinese culture and not have faith in your own religious. mike pompeo was here, he told us about this. he's calling on all countries to resist china's demands to repatriate ethnic wegers, saying beijing's campaign in the western chinese region was an attempt to erase its own citizens. he spoke with me back in april about this. here's what the secretary of state told me then. i mean, when you look at the
7:24 am
human rights abuses for example in china, talk to us about this police state that they have created in terms of, for example, rounding up chinese muslims. they're saying that it's for vocational training and yet there are officers with guns and barbed wire around these vocational training centers for muslims. >> maria, there's a long history of china not abiding by its constitution which says people can practice their faith and china's own constitution. yet today they rounded up close to a million muslims, wegers, in one part of their country, treating them horribly. they say they're reeducation camps but they won't let people in to see what's truly going on there, very limited access to this. maria: you actually know people who have been in these camps, right, and you say it's not a reeducation camp. >> it is a concentration camp. the fact that i'm in new york with one of the survivors, the state department is organizing an event this afternoon that she will be testifying. she's one of the three of the
7:25 am
camp survivors that we've been speaking to. i mentioned three because no one is coming out. we're talking about the people four times the size of the population of washington, d.c. and they just disappear in these camps and no ones is coming out. that should give us a concern. maria: what's going on in these camps? >> they go through indoctrination programs all day long. they study chinese and they study xi-jinping's thoughts. so they've been told their religion is evil. their religion is a mental disease. they have to go through programming. the chinese government has been forcing wegers to go through human engineers. they have been treated as a sub-human for almost -- for almost six, seven decades, since mao's take over in 1949. since xi-jinping took power, the
7:26 am
landscape has taken a dramatic change. but now that the wegers are facing ethnic cleansing in a modern day concentration camp, the concentration camp p is one part of the whole thing. they've been attacking weger americans, threatening them with phone calls, in some instance forcing them to spy. they set up a surveillance state, new york times reported that a reporte reporter countedo dozen security cameras at street corners and they're forcing them to install spy apps, causing tremendous anxiety that is forcing wegers to disconnect from family members. if something happens to the family, they will not know in this day and age with all the technological advantages that we have. maria: when you say concentration camps, i want to be clear here. because it's very sensitive thing obviously after what we saw, what went on in nazi germany. >> right, right.
7:27 am
maria: why do you call them concentration camps? is that the right word, concentration camps? >> yes, it is the right word. it is involuntary. it is based on your ethnicity, your religious background. maria: are they killing people? >> they built crea around the c. this is for international organizations to investigate. maria: do you think human rights abuses in china is part of the conversation that the trump administration is having with china right now over a trade deal? we know the deal between the u.s. and china being talked about includes national security issues, the theft of intellectual property, the forced transfer of technology. does the u.s. expect to do partnering with china in the face of even these human rights abuses? >> i think the business communities around the world should re-examine their relationship with communist china. you don't want to do business with the government in a daylight locking up more than
7:28 am
10% of its population. it's a matter of conscience. the question is very simple, what kind of future do we want for our next generation, having been told that never again, that no one would be punished based on religious background. never again is happening again in china for the wegers today. maria: this is an extraordinary situation. thank you very much for joining us to talk about it. obviously religious freedom is a priority of the trump administration. >> i am personally grateful for the trump administration for taking a leadership role in the crisis and i'm personally grateful for secretary pompeo and vice president mike pence. maria: your father spent a few weeks there but he was -- thankfully, your parents are okay. >> so far, so good. but thank god that they're safe but you never know. maria: thank you very much. big names going public, wework, peloton airbnb looking

what do you think in terms of the ipo market this year, characterize it for us. >> i think the ipo market continues to be strong and you've seen four -- the area we focus on is software and four companies have gone public with north of a $10 billion market value, the most that's ever happened before. like in every market, the market's discriminating in business models. that's some of what you're seeing right now. maria: we had steven schwarzman on over the last week. he said the private market, the valuations are so extended right now, he's actually wondering if in fact we are going to see a bust in private markets. how are you characterizing the companies gearing up to go public. are valuations getting excessive? >> valuations are high. they've been high the last two or three years. you could have made the same statement the last three years in a row and valuations have continued to go up. i'm not sure i can perfectly say when they won't but i will tell you is we're seeing more companies growing at north of 100% today than we've ever seen

sector, it's the biggest sector in the s&p 500 but it has the biggest head winds. 60% of the revenue is overseas. cost of goods sold is going up with tariffs happening and then regulation risk. so how do you play technology here? i know you're talking about software. but it seems like a tough place to get into. >> i think there's three different markets that you talked about there. you've got enterprise software, selling software to public companies, things like flack which went public recently through a direct listing. you've got hardware companies, peloton, very different model, more affected by tariffs and the ever manufacturing. >> and the consumer. >> with these cases, like with everything, you have to differentiate different types of businesses. i think that wework in my view at the end of the day is more of a real estate business than it is a technology company. in any strong market, people are going to -- last year all anybody talked about i'm sure on your show was cryptocurrency and the block chain. my guess is not a lot of guests
7:37 am
talking about the block chain right now. you'll always have things that are hot or not at any given point of time. if you look at the four software companies that went public this year with a market cap of $10 billion, they had a retention rate of 1 140%. that means if a customer spent a dollar last year, they're spending $1.40 last year. >> you mentioned the market get has been discriminating. some of the more high profile ipos, lyft, uber, they're below ipo prices. wework has been a major debacle. they can't even get $10 billion now. i remember the 2000 bull market stopped once the ipos starting flopping back in march of 2000. is that what we're seeing now? the fact that these high profile ipos can't get off the ground, or a lot of them, that's not a fairly icanary in the coal mine? >> it's not.
7:38 am
if you look at airbnb, my guess will have a different reception in the public market than these two businesses, because they have a fundamental business model had that works, high gross margins, it's a product that works, they make money. >> that was the common thread in the issues you mentioned. they don't make money. >> they don't make money. interestingly -- it's a shocking thing, you might want a company to be profitable at some point in time. the problem with some of the business models that we're talking about is it's unclear what the path to profitability is and in the case of some of the ride sharing companies in particular, they're in the lower left quadrant which is what i call companies that are not growing that fast anymore and not making money. you can grow fast and it's okay to lose some money because you're investing in sales and marketing but at some point if you start growing slowly you need to figure out how you're going to make money and a lot of these business versus not yet demonstrated an ability to do that and the public market is penalizing them. maria: how long do you hold onto these companies before your exit strategy. you have $20 billion in aum.
7:39 am
>> it's mostly in private companies. maria: you invested in 300 companies across the world. how long do you hold onto a company before you expect to get some kind of exit strategy. >> our exit strategy can be a public market, it can also be a sale. a strategic sale. interestingly, if you look at the last five -- last four years, a half a trillion dollars of market cap has come out of tech in m&a. and so one of the reasons why you continue to have strong demand, i think for technology ipos, is a lot of the growth has been a net reduction. asset under management have gone up and the net amount of assets that you can invest in has actually gone down and so when a high quality company with great statistics, with great metrics, who hasn't had the profitable comes up, they get valued extremely well. unpress dentally well. maria: how many companies do you think are having a.i. as a core part of their business? is that an area that you invest? >> it is. it's probably a 20 minute
7:40 am
conversation in and of itself. the term a.i. gets misused. we think about it in terms of machine learning and the reality is, every single one of us use machine learning. if you used netflix last night, you're using machine learning. my point is simply that almost any application that we'll use over the next five years, will have machine learning. maria: we'll have a special airing tomorrow night about that subject. you walked in and you said you have the farmer's dog on, you're an investor in our next guest. this is a toe call coincidence. >total coincidence.>> we look ff thing that we look in the enterprise companies, and that's really high retention. it turns out most people love their pets almost as much as their kids and in some cases more than their kids. >> good retention there. [ laughter ] >> i'll leave it with that. your next guest can talk about it in more detail. maria: great to have you on the show. thanks so much. coming up, blood pressure medicine recall, we're going to

7:51 am
problems. a vet recommended i tried home cooking for her. it was like magic. her symptoms disappeared. it made me look into the pet food industry. what i found was alarming. pet food is so highly processed. we all know that feeding highly processed food to our pets or ourselves every day of their lives is un unhealthy. we decided to make freshly cooked food with the proper nutrients to your door. maria: the treats i give dusty, we just steam string beans and carrots. that's her treat. that's all she has as a treat. dry food, we do the dry food. but obviously this is a hit. you're up to 80 employees already, is that right? >> yeah, just a little over 80, yeah. maria: tell us about how you keep this growth going. >> i think we're still in the early days. most people still think that kibble or pet food is the right thing to feed a dog because it says for dogs on the bag and it
7:52 am
has all the right nutrients. what we've done is created a new product that can deliver the same nutrients but with fresh food and make it really easy. so most people still don't know that's even a possibility. it's an entirely new market. maria: it's an entirely new market because people don't recognize how important its is to have these important and good food for the dog as well as humans. >> it's tough. because you have these beautiful pictures of real ingredients on the pet food bag so you feel like i'm giving my dog great food but they don't realize how processed it is. maria: should we have dusty try it? i'm going to put her down. let's see if she goes to it and if she likes it. go ahead, dusty. >> she's cautious. the dogs like the food but most importantly it's the healthiest thing for them. maria: it's a lot. so i think we should take it away from her. >> there's probably too much. maria: how has being made in america helped your business? you produce everything in america. >> yes. and because we're fresh, it's
7:53 am
really important that things are local. a lot of typical pet foods are importing dry products and they say chicken, it's really chick n powder that's imported. if we want to make things fresh, it's important to do it locally. maria: in terms of doing it locally, how do you do it? tell us where the manufacturing is done. >> we have a few facilities across the country. we're available in every state in the country now and so it's really simple. we partner with farmers and then have kitchens and facilities across the country to deliver fresh food. maria: specifically what is it in it? >> it depends on the dog's needs and the recipes. this is turkey -- [barking] maria: you took the food away. she wants it. she's barking. she wants that. [ laughter ] maria: put her over here. we can have her on camera. that's okay. she wants the food. poor kid.
7:54 am
she wants it. you gave her the food and took it away. what do you expect? what did we expect you to do. >> warning, this may happen at home as well. they definitely love it. >> very common. >> it's fresh ingredients, has all the right vitamins and minerals for the dog. we preportion it for each dog so -- maria: what's the price? normally people spend umpteen amounts of money on the dog. is this a premium. >> we do a lot of effort to cut out cost. that's why we ship direct. it's not too expensive. maria: is there salt in that? >> there's salt just for their mineral needs. so not -- maria: not too much. >> it's actually required for them. maria: tell me what the growth plan is going forward. >> for us, what we understand is there's 90 million dogs in america and like 99% of them are eating highly processed food and our goal is to completely change the way people think about feeding their pets. so ideally, 90 million of them we would love to be feeding and
7:55 am
if not our food, it's just fresh food, that's important to us, making sure every dog is eating fresh food. maria: that's what dusty is doing right now. she ate way too much this morning. >> dogs are very different than human children where they prefer the food that's healthier for them. maria: that's true. i like that. brett, jonathan, great to have you. thank you so much. check out a farmer's dog, brett and jonathan, come back soon. thank you so much. dusty certainly loved this segment. coming up, the uaw versus general motors, where negotiations stand, next hour, right here, "mornings with maria." ♪ will you still love me tomorrow. ♪ (pilot) we're going to be on the tarmac

8:06 am
information one way or the other no question. >> does it bother you i know you have done a lot of work on this democrats refuse to focus on the wrongdoing happening at the early -- 2016 in election everything this president has done oh impeach why do we wand on michael who are wits report what took place. >> michael horowitz has to take less than two years doing reports if he wants to give he meaningful information what happened i always thought russia investigation did not have real foundation but i think that is irrelevant to this, this has to go forward information has to come out public and congress, have to be satisfied about it. and about michael who are wits where is his report already? >> mark i think we are talking one side of the story the other side with joe biden, right so do you think there is exposure on his side you know with everything coming out that actually could hurt his campaign going into 2020? >> well, look, i don't know -- there are times pretty tough story may of 2019, biden and

lightly we call on our colleagues in congress, to consider the use of all congressional authorities available to us, to address new alterations find truth protect our national security. >> well, i think that is what you see moderates moving over. >> going beyond it be jerry nadlers of the world. >> inquiry has to happen facts have to come out good news he probably aren't that many facts not taking years to see transcript understood whether or not a relationship with funding. >> to discredited whistle-blower president called him or her -- is that making hay or only involved when he said transcripts slightly redacted released. >> the story is beyond the complainant or whistle-blower, even if it was third hand fourth hand information the president said that he raised the issue, now, how did he raise that issue? in what when context whether or not pressure was involved taking funding -- a legitimate
8:09 am
specific questions have to be answered it is beyond that. >> let's talk about democrats on the stage, making it you tougher dnc making it tougher for democrats to qualify for next round of debates next round of debates in november new rules rolled out monday including the polling, individual donations from 165,000 people with, at least 600 unique donors at least 20 states, holding 3% or higher at least 4 approved national conducted between september 13 and week before debate your reaction to this tighter situation or even to get on that stage, who is going to be on that stage. >> well, my reaction is i think that voters are tightening up the race themselves. you can see three clear front runners, biden sanders warren, then i think you see, several candidates like mayor pete and harris have potential to move you don't really see any traction among the rest of the field, so really that is -- voters want this narrowed down want it narrowed to the top
8:10 am
candidates. >> who do you think out of three, sanders, bernie sanders, elizabeth warren, and obviously, joe biden who do you think takes on trump the most? >> -- >> look i think biden has the -- best opportunity versus trump because he is very strong with the working class voters. the trump has taken from democratic column i think he is probably, probably the best candidate that democrats could have in terms of taking on trump. however warren is surging, sushlg surging california poll iowa a real race i am not sure anybody has 50% going into this -- >> convention. >> you have been calling for brokered convention i know that for a listening time amazing how well elizabeth warren has cone. >> if you look at biden potency gone last couple weeks developments with ukraine he has taken on a very angry tone any chance in front of media attacking the president is that what it is going to take
8:11 am
or is that going to turn people off? >> joe biden is the one democrat everybody likes. highest favorable rating of any of the democrats and republicans and that is 50 -- not a% but much higher i think attack on them now may call him to rebound among democratic voters who see him targeted -- >> to me that is a turnoff when i see that on television. >> people wanted to see a little bit more fight in him see a little bit less aggression from others, because worried he frs strong enough to take on trump, i think he had to prove that i think actually, this contest is going to focus it more on bide versus trump and that is good for biden. >> -- just to go back to your point i think that the democrats actually need to coalesce around joe biden i was you can toing to staefrl democrats they said if elizabeth warren gets nomination they are not going to vote for president because their markets focused -- they can show would be terrible for economy fascinating to hear them say -- >> said she wants the take out
8:12 am
equity banks to account. >> i talked to nine democrats that are markets focused, eight out of nine said they wouldn't actually vote for elizabeth warren they wouldn't vote for trump so they -- that is a big worry because that is where a lot of money comes from, during elections cycle what is your take on that. >> coalesce democrats not something would i use, at the moment, i think, democrats go through primary process, and vet this out i think going to have to happen here, and remember, democratic primary candidates famous for left in primaries, right in general see what happens here. >> we will leave it there mark good to get insights thank you so much coming up strike against general motors costeding gm estimated 100 million dollars a day company not only one take stag hit live to detroit with a closeer look at ripple effects. areaa of health care i sit down with energy secretary rick perry action sandy while

but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist
8:29 am
about nuplazid. val, vern... i'm off to college and i'm not gonna be around... i'm worried about my parents' retirement. oh, don't worry. voya helps them to and through retirement... ...dealing with today's expenses... college... ...while helping plan, invest and protect for the future. so they'll be okay... without me? um... and when we knock out this wall imagine the closet space? yes! oh hey, son. yeah, i think they'll be fine. voya. helping you to and through retirement. >> welcome back, top story this half hour a.i. health care, part of my one hour a.i. special airing tomorrow on fox business, i sat down with ibm ceo rometty about investment in health care and artificial intelligence. >> we have been big investor in health care, and a real believer this is a long road, but this is one of the industries so badly in need of
8:30 am
a.i., it is difficult for a doctor the amount of date, and so we've been working on health and particularly worked on oncology from early things now 300 hospitals over 125,000 patients around the world. a.i. has helped the doctor, identify the diagnosis, appropriate treatment things that you didn't realize before how infrequently they were done or not done with precision. . >> my next guests making major investments in the field the sandy weill family foundation teaming up with u.s. department of energy to invest in a.i. technology, to advance bomel research joining me praltz energy secretary rick perry and former citigroup ceo sandy weill we go back a long time you have a history donating giving back to health care institutions, thank you for a lifetime of doing that number one. number two, secretary what

tell us about this partnership you are sitting energy secretary and trying to do a public/private partnership here. >> what we found, couple years ago is that we were in about third place on super computers administration made commitment that is not good enough whoever gets to quantum computing first wins so this administration, now has increased funding by 45% on our super computers i was out university of california san francisco again where sandy has been a great extraordinary benefactor from standpoint of the -- those universities neuroscience school, and it started making some sense that we would o be able to have a public/private partnership with the weill family foundation and doe, be able to work together to create a focus on in this case mental health, traumatic brain injury can say compression answers to
8:32 am
questions we didn't have computing capacity to answer. >> such an important point that you are making for so many years, we -- donated put a lot of time money in energy into things like heart disease figured out that, you know, eating poorly can cause diabetes figured out smoke causes cancer started to change behavior we don't know enough about the brain, and to focus on the brain really important sandy this has been something important to you for years, i know what of you done here in new york, new york presbyterian hospital tell us what you are trying to do. >> what we're trying to do i think will do working at department of energy, is to be able to look at a thousand times more information in a very short period of time so information is really important to the doctors seeing it in real time rather than weeks later where it is not nearly as valuable, also i think, you know quantum computing, is going to be important in all different areas whether energy, or
8:33 am
health care, or really being able to examine what the issues are and being able to go through a lot he more -- >> getting ahead of it coming up with a prediction. >> on climate, this is a great example where real science can come in help make nigs earthquake predictist, on brine if this happens here is what you can expect to happen, for instance, we are seeing some great -- work being done, on traumatic brain injury again because of what sandy and his foundation is doing out at ucsf in california dr. jeffrey manly, come up with a device maria, take a drop of your blood, even if mri does not show a concussion he can tell whether or not you have been -- life-changing stuff done with partnership ucsf dr.

system, that can predict breast cancer cells five years in advance what are doctors saying you are in touch with all doctors are they happy to have this additional work. >> i think they are more than happy they are thrilled -- you asked what do we do to train our people, we have to get more women and minorities to take up stem education, when they are in high school. so that they are trained in coding they know the new jobs, new jobs pay a lot more money, than the jobs that they than get without going to college -- >> i know right now mit, ibm pwc have come out with reports on future of work trying to explain to people what what they need to do in terms of arming them with right information to thrive in this new a.i. world it is life cha changing. >> conventional wisdom gets it wrong there is people out there make a living scaring
8:38 am
folks on complimeclimate a.i. w it is may not be particularly armed with good information but the future is exciting to me. a.i., is one of the opportunities, that we have to be able to do things, with our computers to be able to save our children's lives or make their lives better for me that is incredibly exciting, and the department of energy, sandy weill's foundation, by the way, i want to say something about this guy, he is he is a great partner. i think some 60 million dollars he and family foundation given to pay off the debt, of young men and women who are going into medical practices my friend robert smith, gave a huge amount of money, to moorhouse college, they see are the types of people who because america and because america is as incredibly great and opportunistic place, these are the things we are all working together, on. >> he has been doing it for a long time. >> future good because of that
8:39 am
sandy. >> thank you. thank you, and i -- i think we have to become a leader in this, because -- the -- the country that has the best computers the best scientists will be the country that ends up being ladder in this world. >> i think you make a really important point because i know the president has or a marked a billion dollars for a.i. first president to put it in the budget i get that but china is spending much more so compare where we are on a.i. to where china is china is using it in different ways, like, for example, tracking their citizens. um -- facial recognition debatable. >> what do you want to get to quantum computing first. >> right. >> i suggest it needs thooeb the yu stated for a lot of reasons. >> you want a democracy to be getting it you -- the leading super important i of the world being a communist country the conversation we are having, today. >> we have to improve our

8:41 am
decade ago he we would have gone through a hundred dollars in a few days america's ability to to fill the gap here, america producers should give our country and our allies, great -- great good feelings of confidence that america can fill in needed supplies at the same time making great progress in other areas of energy nuclear energy for instance we happen to think that small mined reactors zero emission types of energy under president we have seen 90% increase in renewable energy in this country there is a lot of great stories going on out there iranians, individuals who don't want to live under the rules of -- of common good decency they need to be held accountable that is what this president is doing. >> sandy we haven't seen in you a while your take on the economy right now i to me you are giving more money away

these days, than taking any in. >> more fun. >> you are having more fun. >> i am. >> tell me what your reaction is have to the economy today, what you are seeing out there. >> economy is in very good shape everybody knows employment numbers unemployment numbers are very, very low. i think we have to figure out a way to make this world a better place and have u.s. and china get along better and understand each other better so i think if we can resolve these issues issues we should be able to, i think the economists the economy really, really will do very well. >> you have worked hard your entire life you've created an empire for yourself and given it away but a major talking point of the democratic party right now in the primary is taxing the wealthy, vermont senator bernie sanders looking to outdo elizabeth warren his wealth tax is higher than elizabeth warren's wealth taxing would with apply to neither worth above 32 million dollars raise stilted 4.5
