6:00 am
summit with out of communique without accord now focus shift to g20 where president trump is set to meet with president xi next week but president trump speaking out about the difficulty of coming to an agreement. >> china wants to make a deal. they said they have a list of thing they're willing to do which was a large list. and just not acceptable to me yet but at some point i think that -- we are doing extremely well with respect to china. i have a great respect for president xi i have a great respect for china. but china has taken advantage of the united states for many, many years. >> we look at what is at stake straight ahead. and breaking news on nissan, trouble for the automaker -- the company looking to remove chairman japan's nhk news service reporting that carlos scone has been arrested for alleged financial violation. we will dig into that story and
6:01 am
a magical weekend at box office the fantastic duking it out with grinch in theaters we'll tell you who took top spot and editorial page editor james freeman and pollster in partners president lee carter great to see you. great to be here. it was james hawkins and before show started on florida's settle we've got griff griff coming up in about 6, 7 minutes from now with a hit from florida. close call election, editorial page wrote about it this morning but rick scott is the senator from florida. >> that's right so that's a republican pickup and i think good for the country that the losers in that race have now conceded you hate to have roadway play of that 2,000 drama where it becomes a battle of lawyers and -- this one fortunately was decided by voters. >> right and also but it does kind of set the stage for two years from now.
6:02 am
can florida get its act together? >> yeah, this has been going on forever you look at this especially in palm beach. i think 2002, '0, '06 and 2016 and earlier this summer with primary continuing problems following the law, and i would say high time for state government to prioritize performance. >> get to this as with but broward election chief reports that brenda snipes has resigned amid recount effort down in florida so we will discuss that. i'll give you a to let you collect your thoughts. >> i think what you thought is maybe some legislation at the state level as well because -- you recall snipes president wasn't to hot either got fired for similar problems. so i think you need some kind of standard -- she was initially selected by jeb bush in early 2,000s so we'll get into that whole story
6:03 am
and he said regulation -- but we're talking about a different type of regulation. coming to big tech, apple ceo tim cook issuing a warning on what he believes to be the inevitable arrival of regulation and silicon valley. >> generally speaking i am not a big fan of regulation i'm a big believer in free market but we have to admit when free market is not working and it hasn't worked here. and i think it is inevitable that there will be some level of regulation. >> your reaction to that? >> as easy for tim cook to say because he doesn't deal when it comes to data as other people like the facebook and social media players. so some would say he's probably able to lob stones at this upon the and with him looking at regulation over social media, doesn't the that help hissings as well doesn't it strengthen apple at this point in so i think it is easy for him to say. >> they've used that as marketing tool james but what do
6:04 am
make of this because again, it is possible we've talked about this for -- literally been talking about it for yores that they need to come up with some regulatory system within technology but now that you've had these -- facebook, google, falling flat on their face not doing a great job if they even decided to show up in front of congress that this is a really tricky situation that the technology companies are facing. >> i think -- suzanne raises a great question is -- i think consumers should be very skeptical here is this a play where he thinks his business model will do better under regulation than say a facebook or a google that apple competes with in some arena yes apple has services business but they are hardware company, maybe he sees an advantage. i just it shall i just think that this statement that this is a market failure first of all --
6:05 am
markets don't have to work perfectly they just have to work better than government, and second of all people want free services. so to say it is a failure that people have tolerated years and years of trading personal information for lots of services, i think is a mistake. that i think people for better or rs have enjoyed a lot of free stuff is they've gotten from silicon valley and you know, maybe they would like a different trade but i don't think that government, i would be very worried about about a government program that -- eppedz up advantaging incumbent like apple as it usually does and prevents new competitor. skts i had this conversation with -- someone over last five years days or so about forecast and individuals response was -- grab a drink. qk to the party. where have you been the last -- >> in the a surprise for anybody really? ten years of the facebook life,
6:06 am
literally -- that facebook if you used facebook over the years they constantly ask you for more and more and more granular personal information then you sit become and go wow, it is free. great article in "the wall street journal" this weekend. >> basically reason instagram founder left is because facebook and wanted to extract more information from you from instagram they want to know your location and they are like wow, this is not what we signed up for. but i think inevidentibility that is the basically the signal from all of tech i was at the laguna beach the live event and everybody understands that this is a new reality. if you don't if you're not prepared you shouldn't be ceo. >> but i think if you look at what's happening in europe people are saying with privacy and kinds of concerns out there we're going that way we better be prepared for it and tim cook is in unique position because let's not forget apple had a hard line in what privacy means
6:07 am
and not access anything that's on there so i think they think this is going to make them more popular because they're all about privacy and everybody else on social media maybe isn't. >> i don't know if they're allen about privacy but they see this as probably a position of strength that they're in right now. >> referring to apple and i was very critical of apple pushing become on fbi when -- when the fbi wanted a a physical to help. essentially right code so they could access one of the terrorists the murderers phones and apple pushed back that in courts and a i was critical of them but agains that the line and this is really -- really a -- stance that steve job took from the very beginning. but these are different -- they are different businesses. facebook and google are different google it a lesser extent because of the android operating system and they're in device business indirectly but again tim cook is -- throwing sol shade.
6:08 am
>> yeah, and it could be just a business model question. i think you ought to be skeptical when you hear as presented as schismly a fundamental belief. these companies have different models and some of them are more vulnerable to certain regulation than others. so i would say consumer be aware. big tech big government deal i think is not in our interest. >> i want to get suzanne reaction to this quickly apple suppliers are reportedly facing trouble with lower than expected demand for the new iphone. apple decision it offer more models part of the problem. so wall street journal report aring that it is rippling into supply chain suppliers are suffering is this a bigger problem for the tech for the -- apple? rntion i think it is a reality that demand for iphone is not as robust as expected poor vote these are names downgraded now their revenue forecast for the the year because they're not expecting orders coming from apple this isn't first time they have had problems with launching
6:09 am
a new handset remember iphone 5, a month later they also cut become on their orders as well because this wasn't selling as well. i think it is a reality that there's saturation are in market they have apple and handsets can you keep selling 200 million plus each and every year. >> separate chip maker and video it entered a bear market almost in one day down 19%. in the track record, up crash, over last ten years. >> they have. i want to move on to american and chinese trade tensions boiling over at the age of economic corruption summit china reportedly upset over wording they used as singling out their trade practices. this was the first time in the summit nearly three decade history in which the -- the parties did not issue a communique james your reaction to this. how much should we read into this issue again it front page of the wall street journal a summit breaks trade tensions.
6:10 am
>> yeah. when you want to say that you're going to protectionism and unfair trade practices i don't know why anybody would october to that as a goal. so maybe this says a little something about the -- the good faith or lack therefore that they are bringing to these upcoming discussions we'll dig into that and potentially has immediate market reaction. because you saw last week what market did -- that there's a bright -- they call it chaos at apec i host in 2014, i would say it was very cordial a little bit different. >> different president. that's right. for sure. recount mean is florida over florida election results are in in griff jenkins live with the very latest. good morning. >> you know after losing 2,000 ballots missing deadlines and failing to report accurate
6:11 am
numbers broward county election supervisor brenda smieps snipes is reportedly retired according to the newspaper she's ding that on january 2nd now governor elect desantis will get to res place her. we'll find out who that will be but this come on heels of really the big news and that is after 18 year in the senate bill nelson conceding in a video statement to rick scott after losing by 10,033 votes here was nelson vote take a listen. >> i was not victorious in this race but i still qish to strongly reaffirm the cause for which we fought. a public office is a public trust. that public trust now in hands of senator elect rick scott and pins now voters of florida have spoken and i'm honored to serve as state next senator with a heated campaign season behind us it is time for our leads to come

together roll up sleeves to get something done for families across america, it is time to make washington work in a final note dagen democrats not coming up empty in recount they picked up the commissioner for agricultural seat which is a powerful statewide seat. dagen. >> thank you so much griff. griff griff down in florida hopefully hear from you later in the morning one thing to bring up quickly lee carter rick scott won 45% election vote in florida. >> he lost this fight by just 9 percentage points house republicans lost the latino vote by 40 points. that's a very big win for the republicans and in florida and it is a testament to what needs to happen in two years if republicans want to keep the leadership. >> it is a very big win in a state that has a lot of immigration too so i think that's something to look at what's had so different there. >> exactly. so by the way we should point out rick scott had a spanish

oil prices recovering today up about 18 cents barrel and historic losing streak. jill lower, however, after falling to one year low last week and maria bartiromo spoke with dallas federal reserve president and robert kaplan on friday and he weighed in on the
6:24 am
decline. is oil an indicator that it is indicating that the global economy is slowing down? you know, or is it just telling us that we've got oversupply situation? >> there is worry that maybe global demand especially from emerging marketses will slow a bit. so this is why you're seeing volatility. i would tell you from here i still believe if you go out three to five years or over next few years we're probably in a frag yule supply demand to see a lot of volatility like we've seen, but the fact of the matter is shale -- is going to -- going to need to grow prolifically to keep up with global command and limits to how tion pa shale can grow so you may see some price pressure of theup side. but this is why you've seen short-term downdraft. >> joining us shale president jeff, mr. hogmeister great to
6:25 am
see you where do you think oil goes here in the short run? >> i think on the short run it is going to hov around where it is now. dagen -- i think the waivers on the iranian sanctions have had a big impact on traders mentality as to whether oil is, you know, short or long. and i think it is plenty of oil out there. i think the saudis are hard pressed to really cut production in the aftermath of the turkey situation. and i think the perm i can basin has thousands not hundreds but thousands of drill but uncompleted wells to come japan line early next year. so i think that there's just plenty of supply at the moment. >> john james freeman with wall street journal you want to ask you we heard last week that bottleneck are largely easings can can west texas producers basically respond and make up
6:26 am
for whatever cut the saudis do manage to persuade on opec? >> not in 19 i don't think. in principle, i agree. the issues lodges i it can issues are being solved new pipeline but they're not built yet so they're not in place so in addition there are labor shortages that have to be reckoned with and people are deferring opportunity for a variety of reasons namely understand insecurity and there will be a point at which had what you said will occur but that's not first half of 2019. >> have steel tariff cause problem for pipeline makers there was issues of a steel used in one particular pipeline. the not just the pipeline but trilling company or operating companies because you have all of that steel pipe. and a lot of that pipe has historically come out of china.

6:28 am
to do, we've had a lot of stored oil in the last four to six weeks in the u.s. where storage number have gone up and refineries haven't really gotten into their shutdown poardz yet. so they've been producing a lot of gasoline, so i would say for next month or two we probably have -- plenty of gasoline on the market. i saw 220 a gallon yesterday in houston. >> love it. john thank you so much for being here. take care john we'll see you soon. coming up, corruption concerns at general electric. more dilemmas piling up as company sinks power sales and iraq. we'll tell you more, and swept away, a skydiver gets snagged in a fence. this weekend's nascar the final race of the year a full sports roundup. who won the championship? he was driving a ford -- more ahead.

6:34 am
fast we need to e slow that video down to show you -- she survived that accident and bring you an update on her condition. financial services, res looming. a report from action owe says congresswoman maxine waters is looking to bring oversight of international financial institutions under the umbrella of the house financial services committee. she is set to take over as chair of that committee under new congress when democrats take control of the house. joining me now is media d.c. political analyst ron myer ron always good to see you. what do you make of this report? and what max seen watersing that committee will do to regulation what the motive would be there? j well, elections have consequences and here you go this is something maxine water have been talking about totally going to rearrange sub committee structure for this heat, and what she's going to do is put the regulation in oversight of
6:35 am
basically foreign banks urd the same sub committee as elicit and illegal activity. and so she's already sort of saying hey, a lot of these foreign banks especially she's a really targeting deutsche bank because of its relationship 20 plus years ago with president trump. and so she wants to bring in all of this into this sub committee and really try to stir things up. no one should be surprised everyone knew maxine waters with chair here. but i don't think anybody in business thought it would be good but laying this down and trying to get committee members swron backward and is it good for markets of course only issue is she's not able to get passed to get the president signature but she can did a lot of invests and subpoenas so while you wouldn't think financial services committee would be a home for investigations. i think that's what we're going it see under chairman waters. >> james they lurtly every democrat sitting on a committee is going to figure out some way
6:36 am
to investigate president trump. >> that's right. i think for her the play is beginning to be looking at his banking relationships looking at banks that -- russia and china use and trying to tie that somehow to -- the axon the president's part. but ron i do wonder you mentioned none of this legislation that's going to come out of her committee is beginning to become law you mention the investigative piece she also has the ability to try to embarrass administration officials and hearings. do you think it she can move the needle and change regulation based on that pressure on bringing a spotlight to issues she doesn't -- or differences she has with administration regulations? smtion well you know i doubt that she's able to get the president and the -- republican senate to agree to thing by doing anything overly dramatic but there's room to work kroo the aisle and surprisingly she a history doing
6:37 am
that so i think there could be productivity there. but i mean listen her campaign season with talking about going in harassing members of republicans whether a strunt or public place i don't think she's the one who is reaching across aisle trying to be productive. whaing she's trying to do is trying to stay in headlines to try to stay relevant and frankly something that president trump is welcomingening he wants spea. i think he wants the people to be his opponents and to help rev up base for 2020 do i think it is good for our political system anded good for our markets? absolutely not. but it is god for president trump to reelection campaign so i don't think he's particularly sad it be. because it is gong to gem up base because they have perfect antagonist ting after. >> the president did get into become and forth adam shift over weekend which we will not go into -- can't sell it. to start that fire but one of my questions right now is what do
6:38 am
you think qee sacrifice by having this focus shift more on international rather than things that we have been -- and on top of that i'm curious you said that you think they are compromise or work together and what things can they come together on and what would that do for us? >> worked with republicans this last year, on a bipartisan bill that actually less than regulations on some community banks and i think there's more work to be done there and there are things that republican and democrats grow on when it comes to fixing regulation and financial services and putting in good -- good consumer protections. but i think like i said i'm not sure that's really going to be her focus with comments that we've seen come out and structure that she's putting in place at the sub committees and so i do think that a large part of her media attention focus will be on these international banks tieing them to russia and china and president trump. and what we're going to have unfortunately i think is another two years of cay yachting politics i think i'm not sure that's why democrats won the house to be honest with you i
6:39 am
think democrats won house to be a check on the crazy politics right, and instead they're answering crazy politics with crazy politics. right -- and so i don't think that's dinner i don't think that's going to win them white house in 2020 i don't think that it is going to increase the majorities in either house. >> could be bad for business as well ron because yeah think of a wells far gee and john, i mean, i imagine that a lot more bank ceos in future will be hauled in front of congress embarrassed asked multiple questions -- about some of their questionable business practices so what does that say for -- what does a message being signaled to bank executives? >> she called for wells fargo to be broken up so -- what does that tell ya? i think a lot of us have wells fargo account doesn't that make you feel unkivel? my mortgage is through wells fargo i'm a little uncomfortable so i think many of us who have retirement accounts that do have savings accounts for our kids college accounts aren't particularly excited about chairman waters regulating
6:40 am
financial services. even though she doesn't have any legislative authority on her own. the fact that she can change markets just by calling people in project of congress and her with them and fact to start these investigations on her own is rather troubling. >> they also are always looking two yearses ahead ron and does that help them get reelected maybe, maybe not if you're from a deep blue dringt perhaps you're maxine waters perhaps but in those purple districts you got to call that into question. >> i think you're looking for mature leadership and calm leadership that's why democrats won house and i'm not sure that's what they're going to get with maxine water and that long-term will be good for republicans to have the leadership. >> i can point you to dozens of preschools across this country that show more maturity than people that work in washington.

jardiance asked: when it comes to managing your type 2 diabetes, what matters to you? step up to the stage here. feeling good about that? let's see- most of you say lower a1c. but only a few of you are thinking about your heart. fact is, even though it helps to manage a1c, type 2 diabetes still increases your risk of a fatal heart attack or stroke. jardiance is the only type 2 diabetes pill with a lifesaving cardiovascular benefit for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease. jardiance significantly reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event... ...and lowers a1c, with diet and exercise. let's give it another try. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain,
6:58 am
tiredness, and trouble breathing. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. so-what do you think? well i'm definitely thinking differently than i was yesterday. ask your doctor about jardiance- and get to the heart of what matters. as . . . but everywhere else... there are chefs, bakers and food order takers. doctors and surgeons and all the life savers. the world is alive as you can see, this time of the year is so much more than a bow and a tree. (morgan vo) those who give their best, deserve the best.
6:59 am
get up to a $1,000 credit on select models now during the season of audi sales event. dagen: good morning. i dagen mcdowell in for maria bartiromo. it's monday, november 19th. your top story at 7:00 a.m. eastern. rising trade tensions with china. mike pence back from the summit without an accord. the focus shifts to the g-20
7:00 am
summit next week where president trump is set to meet with china's president xi. the futures are under pressure this morning, coming off a week of losses, an 85 point loss of the dow futures, the selling picking up a little bit of steam as we move closer to the opening bell. a little more than two and-a-half hours from now. this after a week of red for all your major market indicators. dow and nasdaq falling more than 2% last week. the s&p down 1.6%. in europe we had a little bit of buying earlier in the session. now the cac in france and the dax dipped into negative territory. asian markets finishing higher overnight. all four major markets there to the plus side. trouble for nissan, japan's n hk reporting that the chairman has been arrested for alleged financial violations. the automaker looking to remove him as chairman. and a rough road for apple, ceo tim cook speaking out against regulation but he says it is
7:01 am
coming anyway. the tech giant already struggling with orders for the new iphones. suppliers are paying the price. we break down all of that for you. and leaving the crew, why the ceo j of j. crew is leaving the company ahead of the holiday season after being in the position for a little more than a year. with me this morning is susan lee, along with james freeman and lee carter. welcome and all. what's on your mind? >> this trade issue where the chinese will not -- the chinese government, i should say, will not even agree to the idea that we shouldn't have unfair trade practices. we've seen in the past they refused to acknowledge int intellectual property theft. now they're not willing to endorse as a general principle we ought to have open, fair
7:02 am
trading practices. maybe it's the art of the deal and they'll be more reasonable later. >> you're using the term cold war. this is a new cold war opened n 2018. they're causing chaos in apack. it's usually friendly display of relationrelations. this is something the administration is shaking up. dagen: let me raise this ish shy. what is better, acting like everyone gets along and essentially lying, like oh, we like each other. >> isn't that what diplomacy is? dagen: or crack the egg and show the world what's going on. >> i think it's pass nateing that people are willing -- fascinating that people are willing to be patient with the process. i've been talking to farmers and ranchers say they're willing to stickic out. this is a -- sticking it out. dagen: we have anthony
7:03 am
scaramucci on deck. american and chinese trade tensions are spilling out. economic giants were sparring at the economic summit. china upset over the wording of a phrase they viewed as unfairly singling out their trade practices. this is the first time in the summit's history in which a communique was not issued. here now, author of the blue collar president, anthony -- if you're going to do the wave, it's the light bulb, it's screwing in the light bulb. there you go. >> i need shoulder surgery. go ahead. dagen: your reaction, china, the united states, where do we go from here in terms of the trade relationship. >> i'm going to say something outrageous. i think they're going to get a deal done pretty quickly. and if it's not next week, it will be before the end of the yeabecauseyear because that's te
7:04 am
president's personality. if you go to the canadian, mexican deal, if you look at the concessions that were made, these are minor concessions. this is the president's style. he's rough in the beginning. he comes out guns ablazing. he's boxing away. that's what he does. he tries to meet in the middle towards the end of the negotiation. so here's another thing for the president. i know his personality well enough to know that he wants this thing done by latest the end of january because he's got to set up the narrative going into the back half of his administration that he's tied up these trade deals and then he'll want to work on an immigration or infrastructure deal with the democrats. >> my sources are telling me -- it's a great risk. basically from my sources in asia, they said they were insulted that president trump didn't even make the trip to papa new guinea. that's laying the ground work by not showing respect. that may be a good negotiating tactic as well.
7:05 am
you're sending a message to the rest of asia, particularly, china aren't you? >> that could be. i think it's a combination of different things, just the unbelievable schedule that he had leading up into the midterms, i think that they probably held him back from going to asia. i don't think should be something that should be insulting anybody. i think the americans are upset about the i.p. situation with china and so it appears that there's going to be concessions made there on behalf of the u.s. and so that's where i think the trade deal gets done. i don't think anybody should be upset that he didn't make it to apac. >> we talked about the president's time line. this is good news that this is not going to be a permanent fight with the chinese in your view, that he's looking to wrap it up. how about on the chinese side? there's this sense that china thinks in decades or centuries but i think there's some pressure on xi jinping pink to deato dealas well. >> when you look at where the
7:06 am
market and the currency is right now, both of those things are true. one of the thing that's overstated by the western media is the overall strength of the chinese economy. if you look at their level three assets, when you're a banking analyst, you're examining their level three assets, the chinese commercial banking system, they never wrote down the assets after 2018. the assets are wildly overstated which has a big impact on the chinese government, puts pressure on their reserves as they try to prop up those banks and what you don't want is a material slowdown where you see the gdp of china dipping below 6.5%. that puts them in a danger zone as relates to the mass urbanization that's taking place throughout china. i absolutely think this is pressure on both sides and i think that the president likes -- i think both presidents like each other. my guess is this thing will get done, if not next week, shortly thereafter. dagen: here is incoming house republican chair liz cummings
7:07 am
commenting with maria on sunday morning futures. >> the democrats are focused on the so-called russia collusion, the russia threat. i think the real russia threat, maria, is when you look at the soviet style economic policy that the democrats in particular, some of the freshmen coming in are advocating. so i think the democrats are going through a very challenging time and nancy pelosi is working hard to try to become the next speaker which means she's got to cow tow in many ways to that wing of her party. that's not good for the party. dagen: president trump offered to help nancy pelosi get the speakership. >> as many votes as she needs. dagen: every time i read that, i laugh out loud. seems like he's really throwing shade which makes me chuck he'll. >le.>> he's throwing shade in oe way but in another way she may need the votes. she will be the speaker.
7:08 am
they can posture any way they want. she's an absolutely ruthless killer. i say that in the most complementary, most admiral way. dagen: not literally. >> met fo met me metaphorically. i'm telling you right now, the knives are being r sharpened and she will be the house speaker. do you want me to comment on what representative cheney was saying or not? dagen: money talks and mmm-mmm walks whether in washington or anywhere else in the country. she is one of the greatest fundraisers in modern democratic history. >> you have to give her credit for the midterm elections. she raised a ton of money. she mobileized people in the right areas. you can call it a blue wave, a minor blue wave. it wasn't a blue ripple. if you look at the whole landscape, you look at the state
7:09 am
legislatures and governorships switching, certainly wasn't a blue ripple. having said that, i think without the president's help it could have been way worse. dagen: i want to get to this, the president was sounding off on the future of homeland security secretary kirstjen nielsen and chief of staff, john kelly, on fox news with chris wallace yesterday. so listen to this, anthony, and then react. >> i like her a lot. i respect her a lot. she's very smart. i want her to get tougher and we'll see what happens there. we get a along well. there is certain things i love what he does and there are certain things that i don't like that he does. john at some point is going to want to move on. john will move on. dagen: when will john kelly move on? >> it couldn't happen soon enough for me. i'm saying as it relates to the president, okay, he's a lot like george steinbrenner. all of those that are fans of sports going back to the '70s
7:10 am
and '80s, when he says we'll see what happens, that's like incoming take cover. get under the desk and see if you can wait the thing out with him. he said that with the attorney general and he has said that on many different occasions and by the way, i was there long enough for him to say let's see what happens. i was gone before he could say let's see what happens. dagen: who's going to be the next attorney general? >> i don't know. i hope it's chris christie. i think chris would have the president's back but also be impartial. i see there's -- dagen: i just made a face. >> i see some faces here. dagen: there's a history with chris christie and jared kushner's father. >> i think they moved past that. i would like to see chris because i think he would have the president's back. he would also run the department properly. >> there's this idea that the white house is in disarray with the staffing changes. do you think all of this was underfoot before the midterms and this is just now happening
7:11 am
or are there things that recently happened that have seemed to shake things up? >> he's an entrepreneur. if you study entrepreneurship. if you take a study on entrepreneurship, there's tremendous turnover for entrepreneurs, particularly when getting started in a situation, whether it's michael del, bill gates, you can pick the entrepreneur, they're whipping through things in the beginning until they get it right. if you were a condo guy, you hire condo builders. if you're a golf guy, you hire golf course builders. he thought i go into the government, i hire government builders. what happened there, a lot of those people were not loyal to him or his agenda. now he's got to shift the deck and reshuffle the deck. dagen: who will be the chief of staff? a budget guy, do you think it will be mick mulvaney. >> i like him a lot. i think he would be great. someone mentioned nick ahers.
7:12 am
he's the vice president, chief of staff. i like him as well. maybe the fact that i said i like both those guys is the kiss of death for both of them. they'll probably call me later and say stop talking about me on tv. i like both those guys. >> your experience, i understand -- >> p.h.d. >> p.h.d., you wanted it to go longer than 11 days. >> i wanted to make it longer than a carton of milk. >> kelly has done a lot of good things there. >> name one. >> i don't think this is a glifn namgiven. >> name one good thing he's done. >> this is a white house that has remained faithful to the president's 2016 agenda and has gotten a lot done, when we think about judges and the tax cut. >> you're attributing that to john kelly or to the president? >> i would say both of them. i would say kelly deserves some credit here as the chief of staff. >> we'll see the aftermath of
7:13 am
this whole thing, what really comes out. you read bob woodward's book, so did i. dagen: i did. >> we'll see the aftermath of this whole thing. dagen: that's the narrative. >> he hasn't been fair to the president. read what he says about the president. dagen: that's the narrative that the president somehow needs a minder, somebody who teaches him how to close doors to the oval office. i think people who know the president push back on that. >> i pushed back on that very hard. i don't p even care that john fired me. that's ridiculous. that won't be the last time i've been fired. it wasn't the first time i've been fired. i'm a bit of a renegade. i expect to be fired again in the future. here's the bottom line. he hurt the morale inside the white house and he's got a material militant nature to his personality and he's pushed a lot of people out that were very valuable to the president. forget about me. let's say i wasn't. let's talk about other people inside the white house. >> in large part isn't this the job of the chief of staff,. >> they're playing the music,
7:14 am
brother. >> i'm going to get out of here. i'm going to get to a commercial break. dagen: i had so much more to ask you about. >> susan, how am i doing with the wave? >> more wrist action. >> i want to make sure. dagen: scaramucci, we don't use first names. >> holding back. dagen: carlos goehn, an overnight arrest, more when we come back. ♪

dagen: let's take a look at futures, they're pointing to a lower open on wall street with technology on the decline. the wall stree wall street jourl reporting that more investors are looking towards stocks with slower but steadier growth. cheaper growth. joining me now, s&p global market intelligence portfolio manager aaron gibbs. do you think this trend continues or do people ultimately come back to technology stocks? >> no, we've been talking for a while about investors coming
7:25 am
back to value stocks. there's been a change in leadership, even last week we saw value pick up over these like higher priced growth stocks. part of that is because technology with be massively slowing growth next year. they're going to have below average earnings growth versus the broader market. people need to start looking in other areas if you're really going to look for where profits, revenues and earnings are going to come from as well as better valuations. dagen: i notice that last week that the dow stocks hit all-time highs at the end of the week were coca-cola, mcdonald's, and procter & gamble. that's where the money was. >> investors are going into starbucks and bill akman bought a stake recently. i was shocked by reading the goldman sachs report this weekend. they're predicting gdp to be 3-point a 5% this year -- 3.5% this year. in 2019, close to 1.5% for expansion. >> part of that is because we're
7:26 am
having a fell on nail year -- fell on nail year this year -- phenomanal year this year. it's tough to keep that pace. it's harder and harder to grow that fast. >> the slowdown in the economy, does that impact the markets? >> that's what we've been seeing for the past month and-a-half, particularly going through q3 earnings, people are looking at 2017, it's on their radar and they're saying oh, wow, it's going to be really tough to grow faster next year. there's going to be slower growth. it's still super healthy. we're not talking about a recession or anything. it's just going to be slower and you probably want to be a little more cautious about where you put your money and maybe foes cuss on value a -- focus on value a little. >> that does raise a question, whether people are too cautious. the markets right now, given this 20 plus percent earnings growth, the multiples are not that huge. maybe on some of the tech names, but in general is there a lot of
7:27 am
room for upside surprise here next year? >> look, right now we're trading -- we look at it as forward valuations and p.e.s. we're trading at 16 times forward earnings. that's not super cheap. that's lin in line with your three-year average. there's room to gun. we could certainly go up 10% from here and still be on a healthy valuation. we could also go down to 15 times forward earnings and go down another 5 or 6% a and still again be in a very healthy, normal range. so there's a lot of possibilities around sentiment and we still say definitely evaluate the value stocks, they're definitely some of the safer bets. dagen: i want to mention retail. a big list of companies reporting this week including lowe's, target, i'm looking at l. brands, that is the -- i think they report today. >> victoria's secret. >> thack abou talk about tryingp
7:28 am
and relevancy there. what will we see from the retail sector? >> this is the big report, what we're going to see, look for guidance for the holiday season. right now forecast for retail for the holiday season is one of the best ever. we're looking at about a 5% growth, just on the earnings, obviously more goes to online. what we've been seeing with retailers is those that make and manufacture clothing, shoes, they're getting harder hit. the people that sell it, companies like ulta that are able to engage the shopper, they tend to do better, as well as anybody with a strong online presence. we're seeing different ways to deliver the product to consumers, not always shipping it from home, being able to pick it up and that type of thing. it's going do be an interesting year. this is a very important week for those holiday sales. dagen: the reason i took a shot as l. brands, it's like super

dagen: welcome back. i'm dagen mcdowell in for maria bartiromo. it's monday, november 19th. your top stories at 7:30 a.m. eastern. futures pointing to a lower open this morning. 78 point loss on the dow futures right now, this after a week of red for the major market gauges. the dow and nasdaq last week both falling more than 2%. the s&p 500 down more than 1.5%. in europe we had a little bit of green in england and now the french markets have turned to the plus side as well. the dax index in germany still slightly lower to start this week. asia markets finishing higher overnight, gains across the board there, the biggest winner, the shanghai up almost 1%. facebook at war, why ceo mark zuckerberg reportedly has the company on red alert. what it could mean for the

7:35 am
there will be some level of regulation. dagen: this comes as apple shares are in near bear market territory. joining me now is disruptive tech research founder and chief analyst, lou basniy. what do you make of tim cook's comments? >> he's being honest. big tech blew it. they had an opportunity to self-regulate. they didn't do it. it's unfair for apple. if there's one technology company that's really looked after users' data and protected it, it's apple. you flip over to facebook and twitter and snapchat, their entire business models are predicated on exploiting user data. so guilt bie by association. >> it's a different business model. we have to understand that first of all. don't you think it's strategic for tim cook to be able to go on the offensive at this point. he's more of a hardware maker. others sell free services, they take your data.
7:36 am
it's easy for him to say we're holier than thou and better than silicon valley at this point. >> i think it's definitely strategic. there's no reason to get out in front of the public and figure out how to do this. when we were talking about trade wars and tariffs tim cook was talking about that to try to influence the president, perhaps. i think that will go on with all the big tech executives. they're such a big part of everyday lives. at the same time, i do believe apple can claim they are a little bit holier than the rest of the big tech sector and complex. they do look after our user data. whereas facebook, they just had a patent application filed that looks to predict your family demographic data based on data images and key words you use. is there no information that's not safe from facebook? that's the kind of thrust of their business versus apple's where they're trying to keep people from getting to your data. >> to be fair, to say that the social media companies are using data and all of that, a little bit of fear mongering, right. if they're putting this together, maybe there's some
7:37 am
benefit, people are getting the free access, maybe it will help them get better advertising, there is a value exchange that's happening. we're acting a little like nobody has any idea what's going on. >> you get something for free, there's a cost associated with that i think you are willing and giving up sacrificing some privacy. but who draws the boundary where that privacy ends, where your protections kick in. yeah, it can get misconstrued as fear mongering. at the end of the day, people are the product for these advertising based businesses. facebook derives 98.3% of revenue from advertising, apple is at 0.4%. it's just built into that model. we have to figure out. tim cook said it. it didn't work. the free market didn't work here. regulators will have to step in a and figure out where the balance is. >> lou, james free man here at the wall street jur nail. we could -- wall street journal. tell us about apple's market. we've seen reports.
7:38 am
they want to share a little less information lately, suppliers getting nervous, they're not seeing the orders they would like to see. what kind of condition is apple in right now? >> listen, i think apple's trying to find a new equilibrium. less transparency is never a good thing. there's another report out saying production is cut on the three new iphone models. we've had multiple supplier data points stacking up to suggest that iphone -- we might be at peak iphone unit vol volumes. that doesn't mean peak profit. they're a services business, their services business now is the size of facebook's entire business. it comes down to the last couple weeks of december. that will be make or break for apple. we're not going to get the data on whether they sold enough iphones. i don't think that's as important as how much money they've made per customer and from those services businesses. dagen: let's move back to facebook. the wall street journal has a

piece that details the tensions between top executives in the days following that new york times story last week. it's titled with facebook at, quote, war, zuckerberg adopts a more aggressive style. here's part of this. mr. zuckerberg's new approach is causing unprecedented turmoil atop facebook driving several key executives from the company. at times, it is created tensions with long-time chief operating officer, cheryl standburg. your take -- cheryl sandburg. your take on this. if you're running the company, he was busy crowing about learning mandarin and reading 2 a 5 books every year -- 25 books every year. i was talking to someone i'm very close to who works in silicon valley and reaction to that new york times story, he said have a cocktail, join the party, where have you been, that all of these problems that have been reported at facebook are built into their business model
7:40 am
and have been going on in one way, shape or form since day one. >> yeah, focus, i don't think there's been a focus there. remember the cambridge analytical scandal, zuckerberg was nowhere to be found for days. there's been a lack of leadership here. look, i'm glad. if he's really genuine about going to war, it's about time. facebook has made continuous excuses for why they've fallen short on a lot of areas, why they haven't disclosed data breaches early. it's time for some leaders to step up. dagen: the thing that makes my head hurt, you can get in on this, facebook gave app developers access to not only individuals who use these apps, but to the friends of the users of these apps, for years. that was the business model. that's how they grew to the size that they are today and then they act like it's some big accident. but i know that you'll say this, if you ever use facebook, you know why do you need to know my
7:41 am
high school that i went to and my hometown and what my home address is and why you need my phone number. at every moment in every breath they're asking for more and more information and people are saying oh, okay let me give it to you and the service is for free. it's not free. they're using your data and they're selling it essentially or making money off of your back. >> yeah, i think consumers have responsibility for the fact they enjoyed in many ways making the trade. i think what's happening here in part and why all this focus on facebook is that washington and much of the media on the left side of the political spectrum has not foregiven them for their refusal to agree with the premise that russian meddling was the decisive factor in the 2016 election. >> look, they've yet to issue a mia culpa for that. >> should they. >> i think they should. the new york times had 50
7:42 am
different sources saying it was known well in advance and what did facebook -- >> the extent that it actually mattered in 2016, maybe the reason they were not responding as aggressively is because they decided it's actually not that big a deal in this ocean of media that our customers are consuming. >> listen, on wall street, there's clear definitions of materiality. every shareholder would argue that any interference with a foreign government on a platform that has access to 1.8 billion people would be material. that's not something for facebook to decide on their own in the absence of the public. dagen: i'm going to walk out on the plank and say this. i don't think the media would have paid attention to everything that's been going on at a facebook over all the years and made as big of a deal about it if there hadn't been the russia issue that they were looking at -- that we would never know about any of this. >> it's on facebook's business
7:43 am
model. dagen: exactly. it's a little bit rich. [ laughter ] >> i love the battle that's taking blaze in silicon valley between tim cook and mark zuckerberg. there's no love lost between those two. mark zuckerberg said no one can use iphones, everyone is switching to android after tim cook said that privacy is a human right and some people aren't doing it right including facebook. dagen: i'll point out in terms of regulation, these social media companies have a liability waiver in washington for user created content because they aren't or weren't media companies but now if they are, do they get that liability waiver? that's something that congress could easily do, just pointing that out. thank you, lou. good to see you. come back soon. great conversation. coming up, leaving the crew, why j. crew's ceo is out right before the holiday season's biggest shopping day. christmas is coming to the white house, the holiday tree making its journey to washington today. more coming up.

that was the key message from the voted leave campaign official campaign to vote to leave the european union so british people want to see sovereignty restored, theresa may's may's deal does not deliver that it is far better i think for britain to -- either renegotiate this new may proposal or seek a new deal brexit where britain trades with the rest of the world under wto terms also trades with eu under wto terms it would be far preferable i think to what theresa may is offering a deal shackles britain indefinitively to the european union that is not what british people voted for. >> is there anyone it was so divided when brexit was voted on so many people wanted to say is there anyone right now looks at this deal and says i am happy we're not doing a hard -- is there constituents who said this is what we should be doing?
8:37 am
>> well, certainly there are in some supporters of theresa may within the conservative party. there are also i think, big business interests who have backed the theresa may proposal. there are also many business leaders who oppose the deal as well, so certainly there has been a mixed reaction to this, but if you look at the public opinion polls, there is less than 20% support for t the theresa may deal look of trust she is no margaret thatcher for sure she would have negotiated a tough deal in british about national interests theresa may to hand over 39 billion pounds to e.du for nothing in return i think the british have been treated with utter you know disdain contempt by universal citywalk sheer blackmail from eu here

may more campaign for things needed that does not go across europe the people of nations i look at france, are taxed to their teeth. in the form of gas taxes, you name -- value-added taxes, not just the one percent that is paying for if everything, and in fact in this country, if you confiscated every single dollar the top 1% earn in adjusted growth income it wouldn't be enough money to pay for about mishgd for medicare for all 3.2 trillion you have to pay for every dollar from top 5% only pay for about medicare for all protesters kind of speak to that? >> yeah i think you know french people have had enough of you know, huge state tax, you know france basically sort of a big government sort of economic you know, basket case
8:41 am
for success as you sayive decades big government high tax policies hundreds of thousands french citizens fled to london past decade seeking jobs and opportunities in lower taxes, actually so you've got knick refugees leaving france heading to uk lower tax regime more free market policies. and basically, i think, increasing europeans are rejecting absosocialist governmt macron talks free markets in reality france remains whetted to very high levels of taxation high levels unemployment manny macron at heart a protectionist calls brexit a crime, this is a leader i think is just deeply out of touch with you know his own his own people. and i think the reflection of the huge economic problems you
8:42 am
see across big government high tax european union today. >> macron came into offices promising the opposite more dynamic economy. >> yeah. >> more he openly economy in france i guess hasn't happened. >> exactly. >> that is not that is not materialized at all i think macron's big priority right now contradiction of grand european yuan super state so he is leader of the euro federalist in europe building a european union army he calls -- calls for to challenge the united states. and so this is the mind-set of the -- of the he french president right now completely delusional, and out of touch with reality altogether, and so it is hard to see how emmanuel macron is reelected in 2020 this way. >> are they using baguettes as speara power of taxation to frooin everyone sorry i
