6:02 am
that take up is happening. we look at the space race coming up. so much more with me. and we have our team here. welcome to everybody. when we went through that piece of sound i ask our stage manager in my shouting? >> my favorite president james k polk. kitty work on that all weekend. do four things and he did them all and he did not run again. good to see you.
6:03 am
former secretary of state for political affairs under george w. bush nicholas burns, u.s. history and -- hispanic chamber of commerce president. the former mcdonald's ceo ed renzi. and then sheriff david clark in milwaukee terrific things coming up. thousands of people expected to protest on the holiday they are calling the rally's not my presidents' day to voice opposition against donald trump in hit policies. that revised travel order could come this week. it is exempt.
6:04 am
james mattis weighed in during his trip abroad yesterday i have not seen the new executive order but right now i am assured that we will take steps to allow those who have fought alongside us to be allowed into the united states. and by that normal procedures and i'm sure we will work our way through this quickly. congressman, it's great to see. do you expect the original travel order they will try to effectively do the same thing. the first order came out there obviously were obviously some mistakes and how they brought it out. this when they have done their
6:05 am
homework. is that going to stop the purchase or the opposition. because no matter what trump does with his order the opposition is real and they are proposing a course change. >> i hear them right now. i want to ask you about this. we are expecting protest a week as members of congress are on recess. and there is an activist group linked to the former president obama has put together an anti- trump protest manual and the goal is a training manager to advise them on how to bully gop lawmakers backing off support what is their endgame here. just disruption because his
6:06 am
neck and a change of the course of what the gop and present trump have in store. >> it might. and it may change the democratic party. in 2009 and ten when i got elected the democrat party never thought the party movement was real. they all thought it was something manufactured. i think this opposition is real. i think it's grassroots. i think trump has woken up the opposition and my fellow republicans i think would be making a big mistake if they hid under their desk and avoided this opposition. i think they need to confront it and be honest with it. >> joe, good to see. in some way do you think there is an effect to these protests that are unaffected.
6:07 am
it's why people should support donald trump. watch these protests i thought here in new york city the day after he won the election people were saying not my president. we know it's not a result of any specific action that he's taken. i think it galvanizes the support. see mac i think it does both. i think they just want to see what trump is going to do. i am seen people protest on the left and in the left middle who have not protested before. these paper -- these people were a sweep. the opposition has woken up. and it's real. i've got to tell you it's a
6:08 am
divided country. it's imperative therefore for donald trump in the republicans to achieve things like tax reform it reputed and replacing obama care. >> with the type of protest you have are they trying to achieve overall immigration reform or do they want to have open borders where they trying to accomplish. and what's endgame for these types of protest. the issue they most oppose is the immigration being in securing the border. this is white trump got elected more than any other issue. the american people said secure my border and do something about these muslim terrorists. this is what drove trump's vote. and i think the opposition is all based on the notion of keeping people out of this country.
6:09 am
it's going to continue week after week. the department of homeland security is ramping up efforts to deter illegal immigration we heard from the department of homeland security secretary john kelly we heard he is signed by most the higher thousands more. ice or immigration moved over 240,000 people. that was a 2% increase from the year before. do you think the new measures will make a difference. they will broaden the pool of illegals in this country that we can deport. not just hardened criminals. when people come across the border immediately we detain them and keep them here. this will allow us to return
6:10 am
these people to mexico why should we detain them here. these are important steps in expanding the ice officials as well. part of this too is increasing the border patrol and those working at the border. as well as speeding up those hearings. it just making our system more efficient i think some of those who are really turned it vilify this and say the deportation force will go after people in their homes in fact speeding up the hearings is what helps those families who may be separated in those most difficult situations. >> is allowing these men and women to do their jobs. we overlook the fact that for eight years obama and his administration tied the hands of our immigration officers.
6:11 am

6:21 am
6:22 am
>> congress is set to be in tackling for many differ over whether or not to fully repeal obama care.
6:23 am
they spoke with senator rand paul who spoke out against any partial repeal. i think the house leadership is pushing obama care light and i think what we need is complete repeal is that is a vote we should have again. if you do partial repeal there is a very good chance you'll make things worse. you know what if you only repeal part of it the downward spiral continues. scott what would you like to see congress to with the current law in the future healthcare regulations quacks. >> what's important is congress deal with the most owners provisions as soon as possible. one of those is a medical device tax which has have is have a tremendously negative impact on of on technology and medical innovation.
6:24 am
like you can get back to doing what you do. how many jobs as that cost you in the industry. it has have an amazingly negative independent impact. this is numbers that came out of the obama commerce department that showed during the three-year window that is a huge hit to the economy. it has a very negative impact is on and is on a point something out. anytime ezekiel emanuel is on this program and even additional guests who were democrats who are behind the were behind the creation of obama care they always say there is no evidence that there was an economic impact
6:25 am
from obama care. there is no hard data so what do you say to that. this information did not come out just from our up report. it's hard to imagine anything other than that. bad tax policy. and it's bad health healthcare policy. we think they need to up peel it right away. i know the president supports that. we are looking forward to getting that off the books. we talk about taxes typically that passes on. since the healthcare system is very complex well that go through. and when that cost the insurers where would flow through. how would we see the impact.
6:26 am
>> we don't have the same type of director products. it just impacts our ability to do more r&d in the future. no cost to pass along. it is a sales tax against that. it just hurts our bottom line and makes it more difficult. there is a lot of pushback recently about how the trumpet ministration and also congress should be moving faster on some of those issues. they had have a negative impact on industry. on the various taxes they
6:27 am
can't move quickly enough. there is a suspension in place that runs until the end of this year. the quicker we can get back we need some dick debility over the long-term. the sooner they do that the sooner we can go back to creating jobs and there are some amazing innovations in medical technology that we can move forward on if they will get rid of the owners tax. when do you think we will get it. for the repeal and replacement of obama care. in the first quarter of this year they will deal with most of it.
6:28 am
i am optimistic that it will get done in the near term. it's not an easy thing to do. i know they're working diligently to try to get it done. dagan: and then the market waits for tax reform also. scott, great to see. thank you so much for being here. >> it comes amid a new push to regain parts of muzzle. over the fee increase. we want to hear these details. with every early morning... every late night... and moment away... with every and paycheck... you've earned your medicare.
6:29 am
it was a deal that was made long ago, and aarp believes it should be honored. thankfully, president trump does too. "i am going to protect and save your social security and your medicare. you made a deal a long time ago." now, it's congress' turn. tell them to protect medicare.
6:30 am
at angie's list, we believe there are certain things you can count on, like a tired dog is a good dog. ♪

[ whimpers ] ♪ so when you need a dog walker or a handyman, you can count on us to help you find the right person for the job. discover all the ways we can help at angie's list. because your home is where our heart is. welcome back. invert maria bartiromo. president say. the top stories at 6:30 a.m. eastern time. secretary of defense james matus touchdown in baghdad overnight. they launched an offensive to retake muzzle. they up express support for the region. we are going to make certain we have good awareness of what we face.
6:32 am
to really destroy asis. that is the point about going in there. the president searches president searches for a replacement for michael flynn. dan malloy under fire under proposed gun permits. they were able to fight back. ordering an urgent investigation. the post that has the company scrambling. that's ahead. what you need to know before you hit the road today. the markets in the united states are closed for presidents' day but checking the action overseas had mixed markets in europe. it's now lowered slightly. that gains across the board.
6:33 am
adding more than 1% and reaching for the stars. what the latest launch means for the future. before heading to baghdad james matus takes a departure from the earlier comments on iraq. in its oil. watch this. all of us in america had generally paid for gas and oil all along and i'm sure that we will continue to do so in the future. we direct to siege anybody's oil. the trades at the u.s. has spent fighting islamic state could have been avoided if americans have just taken the oil supply. critics say that taking the oil would be stealing from civilians making and a war crime. and essentially talking about two different ideas.
6:34 am
this is reporters tried to drive a wedge. president trump made the statement saying when we go into countries and we evade we should be reaping the benefits of it. oil being one example james mattis' job right now in iraq is to destroy asis. and a cut off to cut off all of their funding. it's different than what it should've been done in 2003 or 2004. and will be given the tools to do so. to be gain control of the islamic state. are we making enough progress in the region how long do you
6:35 am
think that will take. >> unknown how long it will take. specially when you understand that they have the ability to head haven there. they've made progress there can to continue to make progress. the question was not whether we will take it but how we will hold it with the mosaic of all of the different interests in that city. the challenge as we understand we won the war through the surge in iraq. the timeline here is unknown but i think we should all be confident that president trump has put all the resources there. it's good to see you. recent discussion on the possibility of sending more u.s. troops into afghanistan
6:36 am
we had 5,000 plus u.s. troops on the ground in iraq. we've a new administration and while taking muzzle will be the biggest blow there will still be more. a lot of work to get that country to prevent that from falling into the civil war. at least you can't hold that territory anymore. you think that they may consider upping that number to something considerably more substantial. we know there is some ground forces. i can see that number going up. what you think. they don't want the nation built. they have existed too long and the been able to establish that.
6:37 am
afghanistan is such a difficult problem set that at some point i think if you could cut your losses and what you could truly do that and understand that you want to prevent havens but you're not going to build a nation. like they can accelerate. i would not be surprised if james matus made suggestions like that. so that we can deal with this problem and i have to go back and do it again. the trumpet ministration may have some trouble with allies because of statements made in the past. i feel like iraq is a great opportunity for the ministration to show just how will they can actually do that fight.
6:38 am
it all starts with leadership. i sense that we are winning that fight. you understand that is what the problem was yesterday. in this case donald trump has said it's the scourge of the earth. therefore allies who are equally invested if you really want to defeat isis. that is probably of what he can reassert. dagan: it left intentionally by the obama and ministration. for possible candidates. three military input -- individuals who do you think
6:39 am
is at that position. no one can know what president trump truly seeks. someone who will be the principal advisor. somebody who can correlate through agencies. i am a big fan of hr mcmaster. on quite some time. john bolton also i really understand the nature of the industry.
6:40 am
the media is going to try to do whatever they can to drive a wedge between this pic and this president. he is a fine summary he is wanting to work with. everyone will try to undermine him on that. there were reports over the weekend. that they will have full control over that. it was really outraged by that. the new national security can put in their own team. and that has been kind of the issue. that was the reason.
6:41 am
is that the reason that he gave. they understand it's going to be a very high scrutiny. even have to be bright in the trench for everything. i will give you the final word on that. it's never been a pretty it's can be messy. things are gonna go perfect. but if you can let the first instance we disagree be the wedge. this is a different kind of president tried to trying to take on enemies that we failed to counter the way that we should.
6:42 am
otherwise there will be problems. it's not unreasonable to say i want my own people. coming up security footage captured the north korean dictator. it shows two attackers. unbelievable footage the blog post that has the company scrambling. did you know 90% of couples disagree on mattress firmness? fortunately there's a bed where you both get what you want every night. enter sleep number and the ultimate sleep number event, going on now. sleepitechnology tells you how well you slept and what adjustments you can make.

6:46 am
minutes leading up to the death. cheryl has more details. the story really is incredible. it shows a woman putting the half-brother in the chokehold before another woman comes up and sprays him in the face with poison. they show what explain what happened. he died a short time later in an ambulance. he often spoke out against him. they believe that dictator huber ceo has promised an investigation they described describe the long-term history of sexual harassment. she was openly positioned. she complained nothing happened.
6:47 am
she said her female coworkers explained the same experience. to conduct an urgent investigation into dollars account. they are recalling some cars. the automaker said affected cars dodge chargers that are equipped with all-wheel drive. they are expected with the recall. chrysler said it will notify owners into dealers and they will do it free of charge. and finally connecticut don't -- gun owners are unhappy. the governor dan malloy is calling for increases for up to $300 fees for background
6:48 am
checks are going to increase from 50 to 75. republicans are now vowing to fight the proposal. we should say that the gun advocates say many people will no longer be able to afford guns. he course is a democrat in connecticut. it is politically palatable and a left wing lunatic state like connecticut and they raise revenue. they view it as unfortunate. if you can start putting a huge price and exercising that people say what we can have next. i know that they don't see it that way but that is a reality. this is outrageous. it should of been dealt with in new york city and new york.
6:49 am
it's very annoying. they're just trying to regulate and tax. people that stand for that second amendment are a minority. you talk about gun ownership in the city and their practically calling the cops thank you. the city is incredible. we have them successfully launching at. and look at the modern space race. i realize that ah, that $100k is not exactly a fortune.

6:51 am
6:52 am
6:53 am
>> them successfully launching at. look at the modern space race. lift off. mission accomplished. it said that dragon space craft to the international space station. an explosion last summer. what i find fascinating about this is that people do care about us being in space. everybody was posting photos of this launch. is a big deal. it's actually very exciting.
6:54 am
try to figure out how to commercialize. there is a lot of technologies that could be developed for us. it's exciting that the government has really laid off of the risk there. they actually want humans to be able to go around in the 22nd century i thought it was embarrassing that they were having to hitch rides with the russians to get to the international space station. i want to ask about that president's plan. that includes having the private sector handle it. once we are still talking
6:55 am
about that policy. is just an essay. this is part of trump promising to make america great again. people have a lot of nostalgia. when you look at the spending some of it is now been done by the private sector. people want to spend more.en yos is going to play out. whether this is going to be a crowned jewel of the administration i'm doubtful. but people do have this connection and they feel like it is a symbol to see that again. in the american company sending this rocket into space. it is a feel-good moment.
6:56 am
the. >> i don't think people care if it's a government or that u.s. company. this is why he knows that he brings someone from the crowd about his rally over the weekend in melbourne and the car goes wild. this is in a crazy idea we need to give it in those returns. whatever the price tag may be. this is the first launch since the shuttle program which ended about six years ago. that was how upset he was about the fact that they have the dominance. as you increase the standing around the world. the government leased out this pad we are not generating revenue from leasing this
6:57 am
out. they're actually generating revenue from this. i just don't want american astronauts. thank you for being a friend. we take a look at the newly opened golden girl seem to café. that's what i was fat in college. i will tell you more.
6:58 am
6:59 am
7:00 am
good morning. it is monday february 20 it's presidents' day. the war over the media. after criticizing president trump's comment about the press. we need a free press. you must have it. if you want to preserve and very serious now. if you want preserve democracy as we know it you have to have a free and many cited -- many times adversarial press. i'm afraid that we would lose so much of our individual
7:01 am
liberties over time. that's how dictators get started. now senator rand paul is coming to the present defense. they continue the diplomatic trip in europe. our relationship with key european allies. i have. mortgage rates on the rise. we will tell you the best state to get a loan, youtube changing its advertising. markets closed for presidents' day but checking overseas action e of you had mixed markets in europe. about half of 1%. the biggest gain or their gainer there being in shanghai. the national bid. the giant panda is moving to china.
7:02 am
so much for siri and alexa how about having barbie. you will hear that story coming up and former cia officer buck sexton. >> everybody loves the panda at the national zoo. it were my heart. and this is doing pretty well. you can just check in on the and up. that's all she does is p and research. i will share the information coming up. we agreed we would return the panda to china. let's keep the panda.
7:03 am
coming up this morning we have i can't wait to watch and get fired up. the chief oil analyst and milwaukee county sheriff david clark. you don't want to miss any of those gentlemen. it's opening divide within his own party. senator john mccain criticizing the president's stance yesterday and he get immediate blowback from fellow senator rand paul. a consolidation of power the first thing they do is shutdown the press. i'm not saying that president trump is trying to be a dictator. i'm just trying to say we need to learn. everything he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute.
7:04 am
it should be taken with a grain of salt because john mccain is the guy that has advocated for war everywhere. we are very lucky john mccain is not in charge. joining us this morning as nicholas burns. what is your take on the feud between these two because rand paul was not mincing words. i think what president trump said in his tweet was really troubling. president trump said the press is the enemy of the american people. in the first amendment rights and the freedom of the press is an important part.
7:05 am
to use the word dictator is a step too far. and senator rand paul was pointing out divisions between senator john mccain and president trump. again senator mike kane has been increasingly vocal lessons president trump was and not graded. i would not use the word dictator no but this dispute and argument as you look at it is really based on american foreign policy. he gave a very good speech. i certainly applauded it as an american but what is happening is that you have almost got two voices in the said ministration they are all in europe this week saying they support the european union but
7:06 am
the president out in melbourne criticizing nato a fairly that's what's contributed to this debate. >> i read the transcript at that conference in munich and he said that this was the most dangerous time for the west that he can remember. something along those lines. do you feel like some of that was overstated. we were facing a threat and plenty of people or dried the were drawing the connection between his concerns over donald trump and the verbiage that he chose specifically in that speech when you connect with the speech that he gave over the weekend he might be inflating the concern from donald trump. >> i thought senator mccain gave a very strong speech.
7:07 am
he's pressuring the baltic states. you also had this alarming situation in europe where they need american leadership but they're not really getting it to the american president. and the europeans have big elections this year. they are worried about the rise of an anti- and democratic democratic political movement on the right. he put all of that together it's a very troubling time for your and i thought senator mccain stood up and spoke about the values that both republicans and democrats can't support. it seems like a pretty specific us white. i certainly agree with senator mccain i think the executive order on immigration is
7:08 am
misguided. it's it send the wrong signal. they were there this weekend. a lot of support by the congressional delegation. president trump does. we are the leader of the west. we support nato. he's been talking down to the european union. you have this image over the weekend the vice president i think saying all the right things. they're earning rave reviews things to his unique leadership style. the closest aides referred to him as the ceo rather and that. to follow what they just said about your thoughts on tillerson's performance so
7:09 am
far. i think he has all of the experience to be a successful secretary of state. he's one our most global company he knows of the world he is very sophisticated. he is a manager and the state department has more than 50,000 employees and a multibillion-dollar budget. he was at a meeting in june of many. i think there is respect there for him. i think the good professionalism so far so good so far so good i want everybody in here. i just want to know what responsibility did these senators bear when they go after president trump in a way that they are critical of him for attacking in the media but they are saying dissent and
7:10 am
uncertainty about the very leadership in this country. i does create a lot of that. i think the whole thing about how he doesn't want to say he was turned shutdown the press. that's actually what he said. he's bringing them up in the context. how would the press be not free. i don't know a single journalist who doesn't think it advances their career. >> they've never said they want to shut down the press. civic something really interesting here is that senator rand paul is at the forefront. this is really giving a
7:11 am
journalist a sense of credibility again because they feel like they have something to go after. a lot of journalism has been dead. now they have a fire in their belly. it's good for their industry. we did not hear about this. more people under the espionage act. the readership is up. people are starting to get engaged in civics. that's really good for the press. a press that coddles and loves the former president now that the president is in opposition to them why is one could good and the other bad. he gave a 77 minute q&a. he is engaging with them. dagan: i want to give you ambassador the final word on this.
7:12 am
it always disagreed. but when he says that many news outlets are the enemy of the american people it's very troubling it crosses an important line. we have to have respect for the press into the role of the administration. i think it was misguided for him to say what he did. i encouraged all the members of the press they can buy some arnica gel. there is more coming up. you top -- youtube is pressing paws on one of the most annoying features with their ads.
7:13 am
with every early morning... every late night... and moment away... with every and paycheck... you've earned your medicare. it was a deal that was made long ago, and aarp believes it should be honored. thankfully, president trump does too. "i am going to protect and save your s and your medicare. you made a deal a long time ago." now, it's congress' turn. tell them to protect medicare.
7:14 am
a used car, truck, suv. that's smart. truecar can help. it's great for finding a new car, but you already knew that. it's also great for finding the perfect used car. you'll see what a fair price is, and you can connect with a truecar certified dealer. so, no matter what you're looking for... there it is. this is how buying a used car should be. this is truecar. ♪

8:23 am
prices her with record stockpiles? >> well, i think crude oil prices are going to remain in very narrow range you know we are used to crude oil being like the nba all-star game with scoring, it is more likely you european soccer game without all the fans going crazy, so i think we're stuck when you hear people talk about 65, over, they are talking about books or hopes, and i think when you think you talk about people who are 40 dollars or less that is not going to happen now. this is the one-year anniversary of when we saw 26 dollars, so we're 53 to 55 i think we stay there, i think we see a lot more u.s. shale production this year, and so long as libya and nigeria continue to throw more out, the pressure is going to be on opec, and january was probably as good as it gets for the cartel in terms ofed a herring

8:26 am
for gas, the way they he react to gasoline prices is almost comical, so i think that -- certainly during the winter months we are driving a little bit less a little bit pulled walk in terms of spending. but i suspect that from presidents' day on, and into the driving season we will drive about as much as last year, and gas prices will go up, we think 240 to 250 a nationally will be average but we think about six states watch california this week, could go above 3 dollars a gallon. >> do you see anything having a time to kick in clearly at least from everything we see fossil fuel friendly drilling pipelines seem they want as much of that drilling as possible, but there is already obviously a lot that has been done result o shale revolution.
