9:04 am
look at it. you are from tennessee. low tax states. you don't want to give any relief to new jersey, new york and california. >> you maybe had to take a look at tennessee and we're doing so well, because of our tax burden with the lowest in the nation, though we recognize that this is something that if we want to eventually get the states to lower the taxes and to be lawyer equitable across the entire country about what people give back on the tax burden from the state, that the way that will put it in place to give a bigger deduction for them. we recognize this is an issue and will be on the table. i think it's interesting you started out with that. stuart: may i suggest that an
9:05 am
incremental removal of the deduction would go a long way to helping those poor people in new jersey and new york. stuart: he writes in "the wall street journal" today about tax reform. here's what he's got to say. despite what you may believe, the tax plan taking place. more pain, less prosperity. a moral obligation and a personal interest opposing the bill. larry summers told us that 10,000 people a year will die because of the tax bill. you are laughing again. pretty strong stuff. what do you say? >> the liberal way of trying to put ichabod shon said ichabod shon scenting that they didn't think of and they didn't do, but it's good for the american people. other times in the history of this country were tax reform did make a difference. it grew the economy.
9:06 am

9:09 am
interrogated and if this person. his own personal amoral behavior does not affect the prosecution of the person who lied to him. stuart: it doesn't read what started this investigation, what made him into a deep state pro-hillary anti-trump bureaucrats embedded in all the federal. stuart: all make this even sharper if i could. they have the transcripts of conversations between general flynn and ambassador/kgb general kissling i. why did they interview general flynn unless it was to achieve what they achieved, a track in which they lie to him and why did flynn agreed to speak with them because the last job he had before they work from which president obama fired him was the head of the defense intelligence agency.
9:10 am
he had 10,000 military spies that worked for him and one of the people they spied on was ambassador kislyak. he ought to have known that the conversations and fbi agents were asking about already saw the transcript says. what was the line for? it is a crazy affairs. stuart: he was threatened with total lack of reputation. if they already knew what it passed between kislyak in the general, they did know that. so they could say it is one word different. >> now, and the statute is materialized. they said the light was red and it was really green. materials are the conversation. he made profound mistakes to talk to them and to lie to them. they targeted him by asking him

questions. a politically motivated expedition from the get go motivated by anti-trump people in the dave state bureaucracy of america. >> you sound like rand paul. >> we haven't seen these tags. but if we get into the business of examining the personal lives of other prosecutors, no crime will be prosecuted. stuart: okay. >> i sound like a defense lawyer. this nevermind my client was innocent or guilty. what about the prosecutor. who did he sleep with last night?

9:15 am
stuart: president trump to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital and move our embassy there. joining us, republican from
9:16 am
pennsylvania. mr. senator, the reaction to this in the arab world is one of extraordinary hostility. days of rage planned on friday with muslims around jerusalem and the pope says don't do it a brother of the status quo. that kind of hostility bleed over into our domestic policy? will it affect president trump's domestic growth agenda? >> i very much doubt it. most people on the hill understand every single country in the world gets to choose its own capital except one and that is israel end its long overdue for israel to be a would have the rest of the world recognize the capital cities around the world. this may create some controversy in the arab world. i certainly hope it doesn't become an excuse for any violence. but it's the right and to do and i'm glad president trump is doing it. stuart: can ask you about tax
9:17 am
reform, specifically the state and local tax deduction. at the moment, it's supposed to be no deduction whatsoever except maybe 10,000 property taxes. i hear movement from republicans than steve scalise, with about then maybe you could implement this on a rolling basis. they don't get rid of the entire deduction immediately. you get rid of it over a period of years. is that possible? >> stuart, it's likely there will be some changes, but it would be premature for me to suggest exactly what form the change takes. you are correct, what we've done in both house and senate bill is to disallow the deduction of state and local taxes with the exception of up to $10,000 in property taxes. we will probably have to tweet that in order to hold the votes we need in the house. but it could be tweaked in a
9:18 am
number ways and has not yet been determined which way. stuart: that would be quite a change because the most profound impact from this tax deal is the removal of the state and local tax deduction or they'll have enormous impact on new jersey, new york, california. a lot of people will leave. this will have a big impact. >> it could. it's an important source of the revenue that allows us to lower marginal rates for everybody and make our code of better code. deduction for state and local taxes amounts to a subsidy by low tax state for high tax states and even within a stated means lower tax jurisdictions within a state end up subsidizing high tax jurisdictions. to the extent we disallow that jurisdiction allows us to the trade-off that is good policy. i hope we will preserve as much as the disallowance of the deduction is possible but i've recognize there'll have to be some give. stuart: yesterday there was a
9:19 am
scene with president trump sitting down to lunch. jeff flake right next to him could within our senator flake had written a check for 100 bucks to the democrats right next to the president. he wrote a check for 100 bucks to the democrat in the alabama race. woody's database? >> of a little surprised but what is much more important is jeff flake voted in favor of our tax reform bill and when we come out of conference with the modifications we will need, and i am very out to mistake by senator flake will vote for that as well. that is what counts. stuart: signed by christmas eve? >> i hope so in a real good shot at it. stuart: senator to me, may i apologize yet again for all the hard times i've given you in the last few months whether you get it done or not. >> you've been skeptical, but we are getting it done. stuart: it looks like it. senator, thank you.

9:46 am
magazine with more than eight rounds. even with my legislation would still comply with that role. the city of new york determined times square is a non-carried area. you know, any municipality of state can set its own rules for themselves. article iv section one of the constitution, the full faith cause has to give full faith and credit to the judicial proceedings and legal documents of every other state in congress has the responsibility to determine how both are recognized. that's the reason why drivers licenses recognized in every state. if i get married in north carolina, moved to arizona and still married. that's why divorce carries across state lines. we are simply saying every state has to look at bad day bad is a concealed carry permit, the state still has their right to determine what you can carry it where you can carry it. stuart: i am told this will face a real problem in the senate that it won't pass the senate. your comment on that.

9:48 am
stories. the batteries to power electric cars going for the cheapest prices ever. that's a revelation. >> this is the issue for electorate vehicles to take over as her pass gas powered cars you've got to get that down. the lion share of the cost of the electric vehicle. now they are saying the cost of the battery to drop per kilowatt hour in about eight years time to just about $100 per kilowatt hour is the tipping point for electric vehicles to be adopted worldwide. that makes it cheaper and it's as cheaper it's as cheap or less than fossil fueled cars. that is a big team changer to the survey of 50 battery companies and the department of energy same lithium ion batteries flammable. right now they are discovering magnesium ion can really surpass lithium. now they are the theme, by leaps and bounds making advances in electric battery vehicles. stuart: i'll tell you my opinion on the electric cars. that's no longer true.

different story, but this is yours. a plot to kill prime minister theresa may foiled. ashley: yes indeed. two young men appeared in court today. at 22-year-old from north london. 21-year-old mohammed enron from birmingham. basically the plot was to set up some of those to device down by the gates at 10 downing street and in the confusion get to theresa may and kill her with a suicide vest. the chances of that happening know, but it shows you that things with nine terror attacks foiled in the last 12 months. stuart: they took it seriously because they briefed the cabinet personally. ashley: which is unusual. stuart: check the markets came up, but not that much. an even split between red and green, winners and losers are the dow is up five points. a veteran run company meets with resident drop in the white

the story is finally coming out. it reads like a cheap spy novel. it's about our government, entrenched government bureaucrats. they've got us from the inside, didn't they. the fbi conducted investigation of hillary clinton and the state secrets she was running her server at her house in new york. agent peters was involved in the probe. heat interviewed clinton aides. he was present when hillary was interviewed. when the investigation was over, the fbi concluded that hillary had not been grossly negligent. no, she had been extremely careless but there is a big difference. he was leader of the team that change the language. hillary was off the legal book. he signed the papers opening the russia investigation. he interviewed general plan.
10:01 am
then he went on and went after president trump. now we find stross is politically biased. he is anti- trump and clearly not the only bureaucrat. another lawyer on the fbi team wrote how he was in off. when sally yates defied the president. don't forget the bureaucrats of the irs that lead up his political opponents and got away with it. i know you've heard this before but there's more still to come. the pieces are slowly coming together. what we see at this stage of the deep state cabal of trump heaters who have undermined our institutions. the haters are still there. it's our job to expose them and expose the damage they have don done.
10:02 am
with a slight upside bias, we are up 14 points. 24194 is where we are now. one analyst estimates today that amazon's retail business could grow to $85 billion. year. microsoft is moving higher. walmart, competitors walmart stores changing its name to walmart inc. said it's to reflect the different way that customers want to shop. that means online, i guess. american eagle outfitters reporting higher same stock
10:03 am
sales. the stock is up a little bit. home depot announcing 15 billion-dollar buyout. that should've brought in the investors but it didn't. it's down to dollars. mcdonald's is hitting an all-time high. 173 on mcdonald's. new high yesterday and another one today. were following the wildfires in southern california. dramatic images coming to us now. firefighters on the ground. we will give you a live report coming up on this program. serious stuff developing now. he is the latest to go on the attack about the gop tax plan. despite what you may believe the tax plan taking shape is a sham. it will lead to more pain and less prosperity for the vast
10:04 am
amount of americans. they have an interest in opposing the bill. joining us now charles hurt. he usually has a smile on his face but i think it's depressing right now because you can't believe what some are saying. >> is a political hack and not a very good hack at that. this is the guy bringing us the whole impeachment thing which is this weapon i think of the political process. it does damage to america. it does damage to the political process and he should go home. either go win an election or go home and shut up. >> i got another one for you. he tweeted he donated a hundred bucks to the democrat
10:05 am
in the alabama race. >> i'm sure he really appreciates that hundred dollars. that will put him over the top. it tells you where the democratic party is today that an accused child molester is in a good position to win that seat. there are parts of this country, where democrats cannot even offer themselves for public office. if they cannot win the seat then they are helpless in the entire region of the country. we've got this hysterical reaction. i think president trump has just put in place a great win. this is not perfect for this is not what i would like to see i'd like to see something
10:06 am
far more radical but it's a big gift victory for republicans and donald trump. we've already seen, while a lot of people have a hard time keeping up with all of the ins and outs of the legislation like this, wall street pays very close attention to it. the run-up that we have seen is because we expect this to get through. >> we hear they are still tweaking the final version. is there any doubt we will get the signed, sealed and delivered by the end of the year. >> no there isn't. it seemed impossible a month ago but the enormous pressure that has been on republicans to produce something, and again, maybe it's not perfect, but the enormous pressure to produce something is still there. they know if they don't come up with something, if they
10:07 am
don't get something to the president's desk, they are in deep trouble. >> mitch mcconnell just said they're going to vote today to advance the whole deal to committee stage. often running december the sixth. >> they always need pressure in order to pull a rabbit out of a hat. >> give them credit. >> thanks very much indeed. >> i want to get to the tesla and its delay in the delivery of model three. if you haven't ordered one yet, you will have to wait to get one until 2019. joining us now, jean munster from the loop group. you are a big fan of tesla. it looks like they've got some problems with the production of the model three which is possibly a big problem for the whole company. >> when you have these massive
10:08 am
transitions, this is the first mainstream vehicle they're trying to produce. it takes time. if you look at history, things that are worthwhile take time. i look back to around 1500, da vinci took four years to paint the sistine chapel. the vatican did not pull the plug four months into this and investors have been pulling the plug into this production ramp. i think you'll look back and see this model three, once they work through the production issues, this car will fundamentally change how cars are built around the world. >> that's interesting. you said the model three will fundamentally change the way cars are built around the world. are you talking about the manufacturing process or are you talking about the all electric vehicle that tesla is producing? >> both. on the manufacturing side you have this intense need to build to scale. there's this manufacturing challenge. elon musk refers that it's
10:09 am
hell they're going through. i think it's important to understand that as the in part down this path they will go through some of those same difficulties. that's something the model three will change, just the adoption of electric vehicle, their superior technology and i think the model three will be a pivotal moment in the adoption of electric vehicle. >> interesting. we look to you to look ahead in technology. where we going, who are the winners, what are the major developments. one ask you about that point. i don't know if that's within your realm, but it's making quite a splash in the financial world. it moved above $12000. coin. in your opinion, is this a bubble or not? >> i think it's a bubble near-term. i don't think it's a bubble in
10:10 am
the sense that the coin will go away. it's probably like in the internet around 2000 where just got ahead of itself. if we went back and look at those stocks that survived are a lot higher today than they were in 2000 so they were bubbles but near-term, when you have people who really have no understanding of bit coin wanting to buy it, that's hugely a red flag. i'm a little more apprehensive near-term but don't want to be mistaken. big believers in the concept of it longer-term. >> okay. jean, always a pleasure. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> we've got one of those studies, i'm not sure how much faith i put in those things but holiday shoppers are spending more on themselves this year. >> liz. >> 'tis the season to treat yourself, from me too me. >> it's been a trend that's been going on for at least five years. two thirds of the people who
10:11 am
shop on cyber monday or black friday bought something for themselves. you don't believe it because you don't do it but there are shoppers out there. >> who did the serving? and pd groups. >> national retail federation has found the same phenomenon. >> is in that talking up your own. [inaudible] spend more by more. >> it's just because you don't do it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. >> go-ahead america, by something to yourself. be generous. >> it's the surveys that constantly come out by who knows who produces these surveys. i don't think they have any meaning whatsoever. i'm trying to remember what we had yesterday is a survey. every day we have a survey. i can remember's surveys that are 60 years old. [inaudible] no one has commented on my new
10:12 am
shirt. >> did you self gift to yourself. >> if you're just tuning in, it's the first time ever i've gone on foxbusiness without a shirt that's not her white. you can't see much credit it's a little stripy. very funny. moving on, time magazine choosing the silence breakers of the me too movement as the person of the year. president trump was runner-up. colin kaepernick was also in the running. here's what we have for you. the politicized trump probe. 10:30 this morning, both fixtures of the president campaign out with a book detailing their time on the campaign. they're both with us later this hour. we're talking everything from politics to the presidents fast food diet.
10:13 am
that's whatever but is talking about, by the way. we will be back.

now we are down 20 points, 24159. weekly, the other markets, down $56 on a price, while of barrel. russia band from the olympics in south korea. why? doping. >> band in russia's sports minister and his associate are banned forever from the olympics. they been given of fine of $15 million. they say russian individual russian athletes who have been cleared can compete but they're not allowed to do it under a rationed flag or with any russian national anthem.
10:17 am
vladimir putin said that would be unacceptable in his mind and embarrassing so the question is will any russian athletes show up after the 2014 winter olympics in russia. big steps, but long overdue because the doping has been long suspected. >> could any of them win if they don't open. >> that's a good question. >> a huge embarrassment. >> at the top of the hour, i gave my opinion on how i believed that the probe is politicized. details, talking about the deep state, the full story on peter and the anti- trump mold in the bureaucracy and the damage they are doing. john has the full story. he is national review columnist and joins us now. you believe peter struck, i'm not sure how to pronounce his name, he's at the center of everything in this deep state mold in the bureaucracy. laid out for us please.
10:18 am
>> well stuart, in your commentary earlier, you referenced the irs as a problem that we've had with government bureaucrats. i'm here to say that peter is the lowest learner of the fbi. his violations of our civil liberties, because i think he was responsible in part for a vast amount of surveillance that was done with players in the 2016 presidential election was probably a direct violation of our civil liberties. when we passed the patriot act in order to fight terrorism, some of the members of congress said fine, we need to fight terrorism, but who will watch the watchers? what we learn now is that in the last year of the obama administration, i think no one was watching the watchers. in fact, the watchers were the problem. >> do you believe it is a deep state, i'm not me the word conspiracy, but what would be the word, coincidence, to use your word, a coincidence that this man is at the center of so many things connected to the hillary e-mail
10:19 am
investigation and russia russia russia? >> where's waldo? in that cartoon series, waldo was everywhere. so is peter struck. he's everywhere. he's the fbi agent in charge of the e-mail investigation. he's the guy who e-mailed cheryl mills and they got off even though they clearly lied about things in the interview and he's the guy who let cheryl mills sit in on the hillary interrogation even though she was a suspect in the case, he's the guy who didn't tape the hillary meeting with the fbi, he's the guy who then recommended hillary's, the language about hillary's behavior be changed from mostly negligent which is the language in the statue they would charge someone with a crime and they changed it too extremely careless which got her off the hook. three days after hillary's exonerated, he starts the rush investigation. then the fbi is offering $50000 to christopher steele
10:20 am
for his dossier on trump which was never paid but ultimately shows the fbi was willing to pay money for material that was produced in the kremlin, and then, who interviews michael flynn? and traps an ally which he pled guilty to? peter struck. he is the where's waldo of the story. >> this is extraordinary stuff in your on top of it. i'm afraid i have to run but we will keep in touch because i think this is a story of extreme significance. were only just scratching the surface. >> the narrative has changed. we now have two scandals. can the media walk and chew gum and cover both. can they cover russia and the fbi and muller? >> we shall see. we will see you real soon. >> southern california developing story, 50000 acres have burned in ventura county. thousands of people have been evacuated. dramatic stuff, just developing. we will take you there, moments from now. this afternoon president trump announces he is recognizing

>> to the wildfires in california, hillary is there. is this fire, i know it's moving fast, is it getting close to threatening a major highway? that would be truly disruptive. >> it actually hopped over the highway. this is kind of along the fire line of the thomas fire. that's the biggest one at 50000 acres, still 0% containment.
10:25 am
the sons only been up for about an hour. the reason i point that out is as the sun rises, things will heat up in the winds will pick up. that is the biggest challenge for firefighters. right now you can see the wind is carrying everything up to an area that's already been burnt. when that shifts down the mountain, these embers will carry up to half a mile that is a big problem. i talked to a fire captain who tells me they are in a defensive posture right now and pretty much the playbook has been thrown out the window. there are two things that are battling. the santa ana winds will pick up and expect them to get worse today, and also water. a lot of the hydrants are tapped out and that's causing a big problem. they are in conservation mode. if they see a structure engulfed in flames, they will not go in and try to put out the fire. instead they will go to the houses around it and try to protect the fire, prevent the fire from spreading to other structures. that simply because there is not enough water to fight this fire.
10:26 am
there are five separate fires burning throughout california right now. this is the thomas fire and again, we are expecting it too continue spreading. we been inching our way down the hillside as it's getting closer and closer. but right now the sons only been out for about an hour and things will heat up. as that happens, the flames will get bigger and the winds will get stronger. yesterday officials said conditions were as bad as they can be. today they expect them to be even worse. >> thank you hillary. here's what we have for you, two men at the center of the trump campaign. they will give us the inside scoop. it's an extraordinary story from their book. they are heading toward the studio as we speak. you will meet them in a moment. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

okay. >> oil is at $56. barrel. moving on swiftly, tech names, only one of them is down this morning. that would be apple down 33 cents. facebook, amazon, microsoft all of them on the upside. important story here, united health buying into kidney dialysis. they're going, $4.9 billion, all crashes what they're paying. this is really about one-stop healthcare. very similar to the aetna cbs deal. let's go inside the trump campaign. the co-authors of the book let trump he trump, it's a best seller. gentlemen, welcome to the show. >> we will get to the all important political stuff, but first, what everybody's talking about is what president trump eats.
10:32 am
tell me about the fast food die diet. >> the president is always in motion so he never sat down for a meal. our meals consisted of eating on 100 million-dollar beautiful airplane as we flew around the country, but those meals were mcdonald's, kentucky fried chicken thomas pizzas and diet cokes, that was it because he didn't eat. he worked for 20 hours a day and at the end of the day on the last flight back, we get a couple burgers and he be ready to go. >> are you serious. >> we hated every day and the staff ate whatever the president eight and it was an amazing experience on this big beautiful aircraft, but he works so hard. we never stop for meals. one of the reasons he won was our schedule, the motor that he had and iran. [inaudible] >> you realize what the elites are saying. what, he eats big big macs in kentucky fried chicken.
10:33 am
>> that's why that he's the blue-collar billionaire. that's why everyone out there relates to him pretty good by the fanciest file. he says give me a big. >> and a play a slit fish and let's keep moving. >> tell me the truth. did he eat big macs and contacts tragic in everyday. >> he didn't eat the bread. he never ate the bread on the big. >> so is okay. >> now you tell us that. that's a completely different diet. that's fun. now manafort and paul manafort. in your book i believe you say he tried to get candidate trump, get him off tv. what was his response. >> the candidate and now the president is the greatest messenger our country has seen in my lifetime. i put him right there, ronald reagan number two, donald trump number one. when paul manafort says we don't want you on tv because he is the best messenger. >> tell us what trump said but i know what's in the book. >> you got a read the book but
10:34 am
what it says, he said look, i'm a pro at life. i understand it, i know how too do this stuff, let me be me. paul didn't appreciate appalled and stick around very long. >> mr. trump said to get lost, get out of here, in much stronger language than that. >> thank you very much indeed. tell us what it was like after the "access hollywood" tape was released. that was a serious moment in the campaign. >> it certainly was for the president, we saw the gravel that the president has that weekend. he said, his locker room talk, let's get past it. 48 hours before this came out, the big debate, the second to be in st. louis, and what the president was able to do, he put out a statement, he put out his video and then we focused on the debate. he stepped on the debate stage with a super bowl size audience and he decimated hillary clinton. it was the day i believe he won the presidency. >> did you, was it you david that invented the term that was just locker room talk? >> no, that was the president.
10:35 am
>> he came up with that himself. >> absolutely. >> one more, quickly, on the personal side the campaign. i'm told she pressed is closed while he was wearing them. is that true? >> i went down mcdonald's and i was the campaign manager. we had five person operation. this it wasn't like the hillary nine 100% super organization in brooklyn which was a complete disaster. five of us did everything. if dan's fingers were weeding, the next guy jumped in to help out. it was so small, everybody did everything from pressing close to picking up mcdonald's. >> you both loved it. >> i'm so blessed, i had been a small part of it. >> nonstop action all the time. >> what our book does is it gives a behind-the-scenes account. all the behind-the-scenes stories that happened, i was
10:36 am
there from the beginning and at the end. it's a tremendous tale. we are proud of being there. >> step aside from the book and deal contemporary politics. we have the president supporting roy moore in alabama. yesterday he was sitting right next to jeff flake in the white house. within hours, jeff flake had made a $100 contribution to the democrats. >> books, you can be a leader or a follower. i think it's been very clear that since jeff flake has been the u.s. senate, he's been a follower. he's never been a leader. he's had opportunities to lead and he's failed on every chance he's been there. from the va scandal to everything else has happened on jeff lakes watch. he's retiring because he's about to lose his reelection campaign. that's what this is about. he likes to say i'm a
10:37 am
conservative leader, i'm a tip of the spear, he's not a conservative leader. he's never been a conservative leader in washington. i've been in washington for a long time, i'm a conservative part of that leadership, you don't see jeff flake out there taking heroic stance on anything. for him to say country over party, it's just more bravado from a guy who is a failure. >> i get the impression that president trump likes taking on his political opponents and likes being really tough on them, almost vicious. he enjoys it, doesn't he. >> the president is a fighter. >> he enjoys the. >> no, i've seen this firsthand. he wakes up everyday fighting for what he believes in. he is willing to go into the oval office and fight every day his opponents who don't stand with him. he enjoys a good fight. he is a bareknuckle brawler and he so good at it. >> to see pound the table. >> look, he gets his message across. if you're on the opposite side, he will try to cajole you and bring you in and bring
10:38 am
it close, but if you're not going to negotiate with him because you're a bad person, you're just fundamentally opposed to what he says, i look at nancy pelosi and chuck schumer, they didn't even have the decency to come to the white house and sit down with the president of the united states. now it's on. he's the best in the business. >> he's a nasty guy, is and he. >> no, he's the greatest man i've ever had the privilege of working for. >> i work him throug met him through a nonpolitical way. i outline how i introduced him. donald trump helped me raise money for children's hospital in washington d.c. without any fanfare or press or politics. that's how i met him. i introduced corey to him many years later. this is the man. we want people to understand the warm side, the kind side, the generous side of donald trump. >> did you get a call one day
10:39 am
from the president that said, i want you to run my campaign. >> he actually said the month can you meet with mr. trump he may be running for office. i went there stuart, and in 15 minutes he articulated why he wanted to run. he said i wanted to fix the country and he gave a guy and opportunity of a lifetime and that's what we outlined in the book. >> offered this but i don't think america will othe ever quite get used to this kind of president because we never seen anything like this before. we will never see anything like it again and i don't think we'll get used to it. >> he is a change agent. the american people elected him as a change agent. he said to the american people, i am going to go and fix this broken status quo. washington is not working, it's not functioning and we are going to change that. when you do that you upset both parties. >> he has really upset a lot of people. >> our economy is booming because of trump - okay, i'll
10:40 am
take that. >> 3.3% growth. stagnation, one half% growth, give me a break - this is my turf. i deal with politics and money. >> i'm not contesting that. i'm a supporter of the agenda. i got it. how's the book doing. >> we launched yesterday. amazon is sold out so we have to go somewhere else to buy it. we wanted to be a number one book. we want people to understand that let trump he trump is about something historical. >> before you published it, did you show the manuscript to the president to get his okay? >> it didn't work exactly like that but i had the privilege. >> how did it work. >> i had the privilege of presenting a copy of the book to the present last week. i was very thankful for the opportunity to be on this journey. we are to bozos, to local guys who got lucky on the greatest ride in american history and we had a small part of being something so special.
10:41 am

looks like there may be some movement in the tax bill when it comes to state and local tax deductions. senator pat toomey says they may need to make changes to that part of the tax reform bill to get more votes. >> think it's likely there will be some changes but it would be premature for me too suggest exactly what form the change takes. you are correct, what we have done in both the house and the senate bill is to disallow the deduction of state and local taxes with the exception of up to $10000 in property taxes. we are probably going to have to tweak that in order to hold
10:44 am
the votes we need in the house, but it could be tweaked in a number of ways and is not yet been determined which way.
10:45 am
literally, in the past ten seconds we turned around. we were down 20 and were up 11 and apparently climbing. 24190 is where we are. google versus amazon.
10:46 am
google will not let youtube on amazon's eco show device because amazon won't let google's smart speaker and they won't sell it. frequent guest on the program, scott galloway,. >> it's a term of endearment. i don't mind it. >> seriously, to tech giants going at it, google and amazon. >> because they overlap. >> they all hate each other. amazon, apple, facebook and google wake up every morning and feel they are the rightful heir to the iron throne. as they all approach a $20 trillion market cap, they all want the same thing. they want to be the operating system for our lives. they're absolutely overlapping. they used to be on each other's board.
10:47 am
the good thing is there is safety and hatred, the fact that they're going after each other is a good thing and it's good for consumers but oh yeah, they are all overlapping and going after each other. >> these five companies, facebook, microsoft, amazon, google, apple, they dominate technology worldwide. >> they really have no serious competition. >> even if you take out microsoft and you take the combined market of facebook, apple and google, at the end of the great recession, it was equivalent to the gdp of poland. since then it has blown by canada, russia and now they're only four countries in the world with the gdp greater than the combined market capitalization of these companies. i would argue you have the most influential organizations in the world with the exception of u.s. and china. >> but there's no authority controlling them really. >> that's what you want to see, some form of authority, accountability by these companies which really
10:48 am
dominate the world. >> i want our regulators in our government to get a backbone and hold them too the same standards we hold the rest of the companies but i think there are laws in place. >> what are we doing wrong. >> i don't think they're doing anything wrong. their obligation is to engage in the full-bodied competition and add shareholder value. our role is citizens elect officials is to ensure we have competitive, healthy markets. when one company gets to the point where no company can get out of the crib, we move in. google probably wouldn't exist, 75000 employees if the department of justice had moved in on microsoft and said stop killing small companies. the reason we move in on these companies is not because we need oversight, not because
10:49 am
they're evil or avoid taxes, every company does their best to increase shareholder value by tax avoidance but they are s-uppercase-letter. key to that is healthy, robust competition. when one player dominates 70, or 90% of a market that is by dollar value bigger than the market of every country except the u.s. in one company dominated, they would probably move in on you guys. it is time. they are not doing anything wrong, the person at fault as the man in the mirror. we have to hold them accountable via our elected officials. >> and the limited amount of time. >> that was a ranch. it was pretty good. bit coin. >> look i publicly believe it is a speculative bubble. >> hands down. is it a bubble or will it double or triple or quadruple? the answer is maybe yes but the advice, i don't own any but if you're going to invest, put a small amount of money so that if you lost it all would hurt because this is the
10:50 am
biggest case of formal in the history of investments. people are piling in. the real innovation is in the block chain. that's the interesting place. ledger based are ripe for disruption because it's very innovative. the coin is vegas. it's fun to go to vegas and i'm saying gamble but only with money you are willing to lose. >> if you are going to buy into a crypto currency, is there one that you like. >> i'm not an expert but i say go with the brand leader. bit coin will probably be the one subject to the least amount of volatility. i would say probably go with the one you misunderstand the least because nobody really understands it and i'd say that's probably bit coin. >> none of us truly understand this. have a hard time explaining it, i really do. , but you know, you're all
10:51 am
