7:01 am
expectation. topping analysts expectations of 188,000. unemployment rate ticked down to 3.8% in may. that's an 18-year low. despite the strong jobs report markets finished mixed due to fears of a pending trade war with china, the e.u., mexico and canada. italy is europe's fourth largest economy. president trump announced he'll impose tariffs on aluminum and steel on canada, mexico and europe.
7:02 am
the president cited national security concerns as one of the reasons for the tariffs. the e.u., canada and mexico said they will respond in kind with tariffs of their own on u.s. products. federal regulators introduced a change to the volcker rule. and more bad news for germany's largest bank, deutsche bank. last week they announced they planned to cut 7,000 jobs as part of the plan to cut costs and overhaul its investment banging business. maria: while can investors are risk averse, my next guest seems to enjoy the. he invests in countries like iraq and north korea.
7:03 am
he's not shy from political risk. he supported the sanctions against qatar and helped bankroll the movement that brought an end to the muslim brotherhood's rule of his country of egypt. naguib sawiris, it's good to see you. we have all of these things happening in the world from north korea, to iran, and china. you have found opportunities in a lot of these places that people would think are scary, like north korea. you founded a telecom company in north korea. >> most of of the countries, it's one of the few places that did not have the network. the three countries were north korea, miramar and cuba. the north koreans embraced the
7:04 am
idea. first i had scepticism they would allow the population to own a phone, and today we have 3 million subscribers. there was a need for a new market. i have been there nine years and it hasn't been easy. maria: tell us about it. we know nothing about this regime. >> it's a closed economy. we can't operate the way we would prefer to. there is a lot of interference. there is difficulty getting your profits out of the country. and with the sanctions things got more difficult. maria: the president is supposed to meet with kim jong-un on june 12. what do you think and how crippling have the sanctions been in terms of the north korean economy? >> they have been very crippling. but the chinese keep them alive.
7:05 am
the chinese could not close it completely. they use the leverage on the west. they create a new enemy in north korea. but the sanctions have been tough. but, you know, as i said, you have to -- when there is gestures coming from one side and a way to sit down and talk, it should stop. the three prisoners, therefore, we should embrace that. and then we see that talk. if we don't like the outcome of the talk we can resort to war. but what war? a war that would destroy south korea first. they must be frantic when we talk about war. maria: what is the china connection. tell us about that.
7:06 am
i think for a while china was holding back on exports to north korea to get kim jong-un to the table. >> i think what they have done -- this should be applauded for it. they signaled some pressure. they have to deal with them with a lot of sensitivity. so i think they convinced him to talk. but i think the meeting is going to take place. and i think you will have immense results. only thing that needs to stop is rhetoric military joint through with north korea dismantling a nuclear plant. it doesn't make sense. maria: i understand what you are saying. >> the problem is to understand how can i say, the mentality of
7:07 am
the other player. sometimes people are insensitive other cultures. if you respect me i will give you everything you want. maria: let me ask you about the culture of china. the way china and the u.s. have been interacting. this whole trade conversation. should there be tariffs? >> it's a good wake-up call. the chinese have always been taking the west for a ride. they stole intellectual properties and never paid for it. they closed the market. look at my market. it's all chinese. the equipment is all chinese. they don't aloirks sp, internet. even when uber tried to go there they created their own version and swallowed uber.
7:08 am
we should put the tariffs to get a wake-up call. sometimes people think it americans are naive. they take you for a ride. it should not be like that. i support the president totally in this. maria: china has been stealing the u.s.'s intellectual property for years. when you wanted to go and operate in china. you will only get a 49% stake in a joint venture. and the board of directors says put all our technology on the table. >> 49% if you are lucky. maria: they won't even admit they steal intellectual property. how do you fix it? >> you fix it by employing other sanctions. do you think all the people using microsoft are using legitimate licenses? i doubt. maria: vte.
7:09 am
your thoughts. >> i have seen them in situations. they have always glen whether they should not be. i don't think -- they are the worst from everybody. i think they need a wake-up call. but the president seize an opportunity to play them against the others. the chinese should open the markets to western players. they can't just come here and try to buy stuff and export the goods while they are closing their markets. and they are. maria: i want to ask you about the middle east and i have to ask you about why so much much your tour tune is in mining and gold-related assets. stay with us. "wall street" comes right back. >> announcer: the cost of doing business with china. the trump administration pushing ahead with tariffs on china. naguib sawiris says that's fine by him. >> the chinese have always been

7:15 am
perception has changed with president trump in place? >> except for the moving of the embassy in jerusalem, i don't think this step is good for the peace loving israelis. i believe in the right of the jewish people have their own state and capital. but the pictures we see today in gaza and the shooting of people who are not armed it's not helping the image of israel. and it's take the role of the u.s. as an honest broker in the peace process into doubt. even for me as a christian, i don't want my holy places to be under any certain religion. israel says we wanted to be a jewish state. so it should be open to everybody. i know they would open it to everybody. and they have the right to have to. but if we already decide that jerusalem there is, what do we

in af -- in africa * and austra. it's an anti-inflationary place to put your assets. but it was misconceived by me when people said i changed my net worth into gold. no, i invest in gold mining companies because there is a 30% to 40% discount when you might yourself. and you can bring the business aspect. mining companies don't have a businessman on their boards. they are miles an hour, geologists or bankers. so when you come as a businessman you start to think in a business way. every time i give suggestions on the board they look at me and said yeah, you are right. it's like investments in exploration.
