6:01 am
the g20 with washington agreeing to not impose any new tariffs and will let american companies sell high-tech equipment to chinese telecom giant huawei, beijing would buy more american farm products, president trump commenting on his meeting with chinese president xi jinping yesterday. >> president xi and i had a fantastic meeting, great meeting, we get along and we also have a really, really good relationship and he wants to see something happen and so would i and i think there's a really good chance of that happening, we had a great meeting. dagen: joining me now senior research fellow dean chang, good to see you, dean, what the u.s. is giving and the china is giving is to get trade negotiations going back on track, where do you see what's going from here?
6:02 am
>> frankly i don't think we will see much progress the markets are hoping for, the reality is that the core problem, that of chinese lack of respect in stealing of intellectual property hasn't changed, hasn't really been addressed yet and it's been the sticking point in u.s.-chinese negotiations over the past year, so i'm wait to go see what if anything beijing does to reassure lighthizer and mnuchin that the chinese are really going to change their policies with regards to intellectual property. dagen: dean, what should we be looking for on that note, any signs of guide post that is we should be watching? >> well, the chinese demand has been that the u.s. actually dropped tariffs at least back to 10% level across the board before we -- before we will see any motion by the chinese, so i think something from them at least an agreement as lighthizer has asked for, signed guaranty
6:03 am
that if they failed to come through, they understand that those tariffs will spring back. >> let's move onto -- we mentioned earlier the united states because this is a very important point in the negotiations, the u.s. agreeing to let american companies sell high-tech equipment to huawei, chief security officer was on the program last week commenting on the ban, listen to this and i will get your reaction. >> people don't understand the way the united states government works, if they think any agreement between the u.s. and china will eliminate all restrictions on huawei's ability to do business in the united states, we will not allow to do base unless strict monitoring mitigation processes, a trade deal will not effect that, secondly, we do not want and we do not speak for the chinese government and they don't speak for us. we still welcome the opportunity to talk directly with u.s. government to work out the proven risk mitigation measures. dagen: dean, the fact that
6:04 am
huawei is involved in the trade negotiation, i know that bob lighthizer has thought to keep huawi out of the talks, the president views according to reports look at huawei as commercial challenger to the united states but grave national security risk according to many people in the administration, do you see this as opportunity for the u.s. with this kind of waiver on huawi for the time being or a mistake. >> well, providing the waiver certainly provides a little more negotiating room but unfortunately also muddies the water about the national security aspect versus the trade aspect, but i also think that for venders as well as potential buyers from huawei, everybody understands, huawei has been put on notice, you buy at your own risk and sell on your own risk. where huawei will be in
6:05 am
ecosystem remains to be seen. dagen: secretary pompeo put allies on notice and do you expect more pressure to be applied on that front even as trade negotiations continue? >> i think they'll be more pressure from the united states, as important a lot of our allies and friends abroad are looking at huawei independently and they are not liking what they are finding. dagen: right, the back doors essentially whether you're a private company or ally or a nation, back door in which the -- essentially the chinese government can go in and steal information and gain access to telecommunications. i want to move onto this, again, making history, the president did becoming the first sitting president to cross into north korea, he met with kim jong un, getting mixed reaction including 2020 hopeful ryan, look at this.
6:06 am
>> this would be the moment, this would be the moment that turned the tables just like with reagan walking away from gorbachev. >> i have no idea why he's shaking hands with dictator who just in may was sending missiles into the sea of japan. >> i support the president's initiative and as a democrat in the united states congress i will do everything i can to see it succeed. dagen: dean, your reaction to this historic meeting? >> well, given how tense the situation has been on the peninsula, conversations between the two leaders obviously lowers the temperature, but let's not fool ourselves, the north koreans have not denuclearized, have given us little indication that they are even thinking about denuclearization and until that issue is at least addressed, what we are looking at is window dressing. dagen: what should we demand from north korea, full inventory
6:07 am
of their nuclear sites? >> a full inventory of their nuclear sites, how many nuclear weapons they've developed and compliance with the various un security resolutions, but even the chinese have signed off to with regards to things like suspending missile tests and suspending nuclear weapon's development. dagen: but do you think that this diplomacy will at least preventover reduce the chance of weapons for the time being? >> we have seen suspension of nuclear weapons' test and icbm tests, unfortunately for our allies south korea and japan, what we haven't seen suspension of mid and shorter-range missile tests which can still reach our allies. dagen: dean, good to see you this morning, please come back, great insight. moving onto chaos and violence amid protests in hong kong today, cheryl casone has details, hey, cheryl.
6:08 am
cheryl: good morning, dagen, thousands hit the street to protest extradition bill and call for resignation of terry lamb, not officially taking it off the table, protests coming on the 22nd anniversary of the former british colonies return to china, anniversary today, small group of people tried to bring into hong kong's legislature, smashed up a few windows, police are still warning protestors to stop charging before they decide to use force and it's 6:00 p.m. right now in hong kong. 10 people are dead after small twin engine airplane crashed in hanger near dallas, texas, officials say no one survived the crash, addison municipal airport, the plane was headed for st. peters berg, florida, crash burst into flames right after takeoff, an investigation underway, the identity of the victim -- victims have not been released. boeing is facing new
6:09 am
investigations, seattle times reporting right now the department of justice has subpoenaed records from boeing related to the production of the 787 brim liner regarding safety issues, the 787 widens scope of doj scrutiny of boeing in tote talety which is already facing as you know probes into the 737 max, of course, boeing, a dow component slightly higher in premarket, half percent, obviously, dagen, markets in general popping this morning. dagen: popping, indeed. heart-stopping on the road, deputy dragged twice by suspect during traffic stop and 2020 vision, california senator kamala harris sees a big boost in the polls.
6:10 am
since my dvt blood clot i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
6:11 am
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.
6:12 am

dagen: big show this morning, committee member buddy carter and house agriculture science space and technology committee member, roger marshal, former white house trade official and partner clay and steven and new voice ceo former presidential candidate herman cain, first 2020 race, new democratic poll out from morning showing california senator kamala harris surging after last week's democratic debate, harris now in third place behind joe biden and senator bernie sanders, she is essentially tied with senator elizabeth warren, on face the nation yesterday senator lindsey graham, republican, said kamala harris stands a good chance against her democratic challengers. >> when it comes to joe biden, next debate he has to change
6:14 am
narrative and one thing i will say about kamala harris and i will say this before, she has got game, she's very talented, she's very smart and she'll be a force to be reckon with. dagen: joining the conversation this morning fox news contributor jessica, among her many titles. [laughter] pwc partner mitch roschelle and founder fox news contributor jonathan honey, welcome one and all. were you surprise by her bump or not? >> no, we talked about it all weekend and we talked friday on outnumbered, the clear winner of thursdays night's debate, what i find more interesting is information trickling in about strategy, politico has great piece out about how they have been plotting specific attack on joe biden for months, waiting for right time and that she even practiced different ways of getting there in the conversation. she raised $2 million in first 24 hours online after the debate and i think it was 58,000 were
6:15 am
new, excuse me, new contributors so really big deal, she's tied with elizabeth warren, take aways are very big deal, no bump for bernie sanders, he was really pushed out there and no substantial bump for jillian castro who we thought was a big winner on the first night of the debate. >> amazed at one debate can have this much of a change, i mean, look i had kamala harris on online prediction poll and i was surprised because odds at least according to predicted almost doubled after debate, i'm surprised that one debate can have such an impact given biden's experience, given his legacy. >> 4 to 5 points, i wouldn't overestimate how much effect this has had, he has had mixed clean-up, new comments that were not fantastic, defense of civil rights record. end of july is next poll and you do take polls of all of this. dagen: i want to ask you is there a sense among democrat
6:16 am
party that kamala harris took it too far because she hit him and she hit him and she hit him again on the issue of busing and, again, she was using to her advantage the fact that any voter under the age of really 55 or 60 doesn't remember how complicated an issue that was. >> right. >> so i wonder if it came, and i use my words carefully, manipulative. >> that's the sentiment that joe biden feels about this, i'm not a racist, i know you're not a racist but still -- i know you're not a racist but you're a racist. >> you're right, to a millennial, i'm a millennial and you say the word busing and i can't imagine a world in which you would be opposing that on any level but i realize the nuance of it and you also need to think about who joe biden's voters are, antjuan seawright
6:17 am
says joe biden voters were already in bed, they want to get up and go to work. >> they want a fighter, somebody to fight against trump, maybe that's what's benefiting her right now. >> i said this in outnumbered, she did a couple of things, she personalized something which makes it irrefutable, i was a young girl in california that you can't -- you can't push fight back because you can't prove that she's wrong. >> you can't take it away. dagen: strategy that other candidates will possibly will use against joe biden and other people, i think that joe biden is going take a lot more incoming from all the candidates, both not just on the debate stage because he looked a a little vulnerable after she took him down like that. >> any of the other 19 rand you see how harris got the bump, wait, that strategy works, i'm going the try it, so i think you will see a lot more coming up. >> what about the danger, the fear that i certainly have as
6:18 am
democrat having watch bernie sanders go at hillary clinton and donald trump picked up bernie's attack word for word, we are not trying to take each other down, we are trying to take donald trump down and something to consider. >> you to fen the herd 20 to 1. dagen: somebody refer attack as trumpian. tom nicoles said that. >> never trumper, we are in a primary right now, that's the problem with the brad stevens column, joe biden is trying to run a general election during primary because he's thinking ahead and what the messages are that are going to resinate with moderate, with people who may have voted for trump in rust belt in 2016 that were former hillary voters. >> he's got to be on defense. dagen: i want to say bret stevens was called a bigot and white supremacist i think by people on the left and his message, by the way his father is from méxico and he grew up in méxico. >> he grew up speaking spanish.
6:19 am
dagen: anyway, my point -- let's quickly talk about the economy, you need advise from people who can see the world in political landscape from 35,000 feet because you have more than 70% of people think the economy is good if not great and 70% that like private health insurance from the employer, how do you push back given the fact that the economy, the longest economic expansion in history? >> you can't keep saying that the economy isn't working for all americans when most americans are saying it's working. >> well, they are not giving trump credit for it and there's argument to make which warren, she scores top marks, income inequality, greatest threat that we face, i'm not going to try to take money from you, i'm taking it from the guy on the top, he can afford it because he has a big break. that resinates. dagen: here is her problem, tracee flick, do you -- do you support taking --
6:20 am
>> kamala, i thought you meant warren. >> she tried to act like she didn't know what they were asking her, kamala did that, elizabeth warren supports 180 million people losing private health insurance and i don't know how -- how you possibly can win on that even if she wins the -- even if she winds up winning the democratic nomination, i don't know how you tell the american people that that's going to happen to them. >> i think that you're talking about a general level of care for 320 million americans, people who do have medicare, my parents love their medicare. >> the plans rip up medicare as we know it too, like the bernie sanders' medicare for all plan that warren, kamala and cory booker and gillibrand endorsed and cosponsored ripped up. >> i'm for improving the aca. dagen: there you go, joe biden, new pack plus nothing but net,
6:21 am
kevin durant is heading east to new contract with the nets and he's not alone. can't see what it is yet.re? what is that? that's a blazer? that's a chevy blazer? aww, this is dope. this thing is beautiful.

6:24 am
dagen: oil prices rise ago long side futures, more than 2 and a half percent gain in the cost of crude, right around $60 a barrel at the moment, price is surging as opec and russian allies are reportedly going to extend their deals to cut output by 9 months, joining us right now steven shorck, how much higher are we going to get here, steven. >> do i think, dagen, the market is a little overdone on this. i don't think any sort of
6:25 am
agreement or extension of a cut was really that much of a surprise after all opec had no choice but -- opec plus russia had no choice but to extend the cuts, so since we had 1.2 million-barrel cut by the producer nations we have seen united states add 1.7 billion-barrels to the market this past year. to this point oil markets, we had oil prices $20 below they they were last year regardless of cut, opec doesn't really have much of a choice but to extend this so i think the market is kind of overreacting but markets do overreact, that's what they do, when you look at the volatility of adjusted premium on bulls of wall street they are holding small position at this time, they have a lot of bullets a@markets, should they start buy to go push things higher, how high can we go, dagen, no one
6:26 am
can tell you, we are overdone based on the headlines but if wall street decides to jump back in the game, certainly $70 a barrel by the end of the summer. dagen: okay. >> how much of a glut, we are talking about opec, how big of a glut of supply is from u.s. domestic producers? >> well, we are at 12.3 million-barrels a day, we do not have the infrastructure that is the transportation to get that oil from where it's being produce today where it's being consumed so we are looking at inventories here in the united states that are well above historical norms so that should certainly keep lid on price, we have to keep in mind that oil, crude oil is worthless, crude oil only value is the products you derive from it and the real story is not opec, it is down in philadelphia, my hometown where we just lost the largest oil refinery two weeks ago on the u.s. east coast so that is a significant hit to the gas line
6:27 am
market, that's where the focus i don't think is really on at this point but the loss of philadelphia as refinery hub on the east coast is a major story that i think at this point the market is severely underestimating. dagen: so what does that do -- that would keep prices in check then would it not? >> well, yes, oil crude oil prices yes because refinery is title. i'm buying a few barrels at philadelphia i'm producing fewer gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel, difference between product prices there is bullish event for crude oil prices it's a bearish event. dagen: got you, steven shorck, great to see you my friend. florida deputy dragged twice after traffic stop, all caught on camera. plus virtual reality in workplace how wal-mart is using to get employers raises and

dagen: welcome back, i'm dagen mcdowell in for maria bartiromo, monday july 1st, top stories at 6:30 a.m. eastern, futures are showing a big-time rally at the market open as we start the second half of the year, 286-point gain on the dow futures, gains across the board on the markets here in the u.s. this on renewed optimism of trade deal following president trump's meeting with chinese president xi judge -- ginning -- jinping. the markets last week. that is -- anyway, you know what, it's the best first half of the year in 22 years for the s&p 500, i don't even know what
6:32 am
we are looking at, in europe we have gains across the board, asia, nikkei, rallied on renewed hopes of u.s.-china trade deal. scary scene on the road, new video shows florida deputy dragged by a car that he pulled over, dragged twice, we will show you the video, more details ahead. retail giant turning to technology to help employees get raises and promotions, we will tell you how it works, taylor swift not taking off the sale of music catalog, slamming the talent manager who bought her former record label. blew up over the weekend and we can't wait to talk about it, big money moves in the nba, kevin durant heading east to brooklyn along with big star. top story this half hour, futures are pointing to higher open to start the second half of the year, boosted by a temporary trade truce between the united states and china, president
6:33 am
trump and chinese president xi jinping agreeing over the weekend to resume trade negotiations, investors watching the results of that plus the june employment report that's out on friday. joining me global advisers president chief investment officer, dominic. >> good morning. >> let's talk about best first half in 22 years, the s&p, the best june for the dow since 1938, this despite the market that's telling us something together with the 10-year yield at 2% which is scarily low, where do you think the market wills go from here? is this just a short-term boost because of the trade truce? >> yeah, you can argue that this is so much of a relief rally, we weren't expecting bombs to go off, we weren't expecting the worse, more tariffs and countertariffs by the chinese, on the other hand, we are all hoping at the very least we would have peace offering and i expected all along that this is
6:34 am
going to take a very long time, i wouldn't be surprised that we are sitting here next year waiting for results of presidential election still not resolved. negotiations still moving forward but not resolved. >> i have to ask what kind of stock investors should be looking at, the technology stocks led market for the last 5 years, for the last year utilities, even some of the big pharmaceutical stocks, where should investors be putting money now? >> look, you could see it today, people want to pile on some of the stock that is have done really well but you would want to think logically that maybe it's time to take money off the table, i'm not talking big positions or going to cash but harvest some profits and start looking at areas that maybe haven't performed really well or maybe not well at all and we have been out of emerging markets area now probably 12 to 18 months, now a time that we start nibbling a little bit.
6:35 am
dagen: mitch, the u.s. economy now on longest expansion on record, but the market so far year to date, gross has outperformed value. so baying-time growth, is the market not factoring into a slowdown or is it telling us that -- i'm talking about stocks and i will ask you about treasuries too, what do you see down the road because you sent me a note overnight. >> i think the fear missing out thing because look at what happened in the fourth quarter the market just slid and people said, oh, boy, this is bad, recession is coming, in the first quarter it took off and paused for a second and people said, the pause is the time to buy. what i'm curious about, dom, earnings have been underwhen he-
6:36 am
underwhelming. >> people were pricing the worst case scenario, china trade, fed raising interest rates indefinitely, clearly the correction was corrected on the upwards side, now when they saw the fed pausing and china not going into trade war, we had a bounce-back from what we lost in the fourth quarter, going forward i think that's the biggest risk, i think you hit the nail on the head, earnings are not spectacular, i think they are going to be disappointing and i think might be late third quarter, fourth quarter before we start see rebound in earnings, the biggest risk we see over next 2 or 3 months is disappoint in earnings. dagen: what is 2-year yield on 10-year treasury telling you, is the 3-month still inverted? i don't mean to put you on the spot? >> it is. the other thing, my notes of yields around the world they're all negative. >> yeah, our yields look high compare all throughout europe. >> denmark was positive last week and now it's negative.
6:37 am
so how much of the -- the rally in fixed income is just a flight to quality with a positive yield? >> it's the fear trade, right, people worrying that the economy really is slowing down, the economy might be going into a recession and you know what, earning 2% is better than losing 10 or 15% that might sound like really crazy, look what happened in the month of may, averages were down between 6 and 7%, there's risk out there, do i think the economy is slowing and bond investors are going you know what, i would rather be safe here, i would rather have capital not at risk. so a little pullback in the markets over the next 30 or 60 days wouldn't be terribly unusual or frightening to me, might be opportunity to get capital back to work if you've missed some of the ride, clearly bond traders are telling you, hey, there's risk out there, potential recession. dagen: where do you go to yield here? >> oh, my god. dagen: i wish you had camera,
6:38 am
you made the face. [laughter] dagen: this is a replay in some ways of 2006-7 where people are searching for yield and you have older americans savers who have done the right thing taking risks that they don't understand. >> they don't. >> all the money was going and people chasing the yield. >> look at what's going on with real estate market today, we are seeing pause in real estate prices, new york is down, miami, florida, prices are starting to come back a little bit, so, you know, really attractive yields but i would be careful, they will get demolished in a recession, yield people are still searching for that high number, i think you have to hit the pause button. we've had exposure in high yield, it's worked out for us, time to take profits, park them and wait a little bit and opportunity later in the year.
6:39 am
dagen: politically i want to ask jessica, democrats wishing for recession. >> i have no fapgy folder with yields on it, as you foresee any circumstances in which we are right back where we started with china in the next few weeks even and what the implications of what's going on with iran could be on the markets in terms of rattling them. >> a few weeks probably not, this is trump's opportunity to let the dust settle a little bit. i think you saw what happened in may that this could turn around really quickly and harm his election possibilities, reelection possibilities so i think he's going hit the pause button there himself, he will try to work this out but we can see he can turn on a dime, he tweets at 3:00 or 4:00 o'clock in the morning and all of a sudden we are reimposing 25% tariffs on extra 30 billion and by the way, import from china,
6:40 am
the stuff that's been taxed now at 25%, some of those import are down over 30%, so there's a real effect there and stuff not being taxed, tariff, those import are higher. dagen: a lot of companies have been doing run-around. >> in india. dagen: and india. companies have figured out a way to avoid. >> vietnamese shuffle. >> i think he would be smart enough, careful not to trigger but can be impulsive. >> i appreciate that you say i think. >> suggested tariff on vietnam as well. >> and why not? dagen: even if we get china trade deal then it's europe next, europe is worse than china that was a quote that he -- maria interviewed him, he said europe in many ways -- >> he holds the one over the cards, autos being imported from
6:41 am
europe, big hammer he's holding and he's not afraid to swing it. dagen: good to see you, sheriff deputy dragged twice by florida man during traffic stop, cheryl casone has details and new video, hey, cheryl. cheryl: video especially, dagen, good morning, 38-year-old rocky rudolph, jr. facing attempted murder charges for drags sheriff's deputy in florida, officer pulled him over for illegal window tint and he smelled marijuana, the suspect refuse today turn off suv and watch that the deputy was dragged 20 feet, again 250 feet, the officer treated in hospital and luckily has been released. the company is using a vr head set for skills assessment to see how workers handle scenarios, all this in the wall street journal this morning, vr

7:00 am
dagen: good morning. i'm dagen mcdowell, in for maria bartiromo. it's monday, july 1st. your top stories at 7:00 a.m. u.s.-china trade truce, president trump meeting with president xi-jinping of china, agreeing to get talks back on track. the news pushing markets higher as we kick off the second half of the year. you've got a triple digit gain on the dow, up 266 points. the futures there. the dow at s&p 500 poised to hit new records at the open. and the markets are coming off a strong june, all three major gauges up at least 6.5% in the month, more than 7% on the nasdaq and dow, and, again, the
7:01 am
s&p having its best start to the year in 22 years. that's pretty incredible there. move on and check europe, gains across the board to tell you about in europe, england, france and germany to the plus side. in asia, hopes of a u.s.-china trade deal, the hang seng was closed, asian markets were lower across the board. nikkei was lower by 2%, if those numbers are correct. protests in the streets of hong kong, demonstrators trying to get into a government building. we have the latest there. and a major recall impacting 1.6 million automobiles. a fix for a potentially deadly problem. what you need to know, ahead. toys continue to rule the box office, the avengers battling it out for history, find out if the film broke the all-time record. that is straight ahead. and a super car for kids, a look
7:02 am
at mclarn's new mini electric sports car and how much it will set you back. would you fit in that? [ laughter ] >> i definitely would. >would.dagen: i can wedge myseo smalsmall places, my knee's inty chin. here to help break it down, jessica tarloff, and mitch rochell, and jonathan hoenig. >> and baby mclarn driver, jonathajonathan hoenig. dagen: we started in may of 2001. >> i was in the seventh grade. dagen: you look like you're in seventh grade. >> there's so much to talk about the, the markets, the potential trade deal, north korea, inverted yield curve, money is moving. >> today is canada day. that should be a reminder for
7:03 am
those in congress to ratify the usmca. dagen: that's going to become a big concern. >> i don't know how you negotiate a trade deal when the one we negotiated can't get ratified. dagen: do you think pelosi moves on that. >> they don't want to do anything that will make the president look good. >> it's not ideal. i've got to be honest about that. dagen: what, the deal? >> no, it's not ideal to give president trump a win. >> don't they want -- >> they do absolutely. the usmca is not that different from nafta. that's why nancy -- whatever you're calling it today, new nafta, usmca, i imagine they will move on it. it will be a key voting issue. we are going to take back pennsylvania, michigan and wisconsin there, so i think -- i'm sure joe biden will be talking about it. dagen: it's prefe preferentiale unions, it's like union leadership wrote the thing, practically. >> they support a lot of democratic campaigns.
7:04 am
>> they do. the teachers union has gone for kamala harris who has the most comprehensive hike in teacher pay plan. otherwise, everyone is in joe biden's camp. >> in terms of tariffs, is it not true that while a truce has been called on new tariffs, it's not as if the existing tariffs on china, there's been $20 billion already paid by u.s. companies and the president would have you think someone is paying, but u.s. consumers have paid $20 billion more, those tariffs are not coming off. those are still in place. is there a thought that maybe the president to some extent coming into 2020 needs an enemy and that he doesn't want to get rid of the tariffs against china, that china serves that political purpose as needing an enemy and maybe for that reason tariffs aren't going to go away. dagen: as long as the enemy doesn't make the economy worse than where it is, as we just entered the longest expansion on record in the united states, as of today. it's more than a decade. >> that's a strong argument for what's going on with iran right now. coming out of the deal which they were complying with, have
7:05 am
no new deal to put in place here, tensions rising there, that doesn't affect our economy as much as something with china. dagen: clete williams is coming up, buddy carter, phil orlando, house agriculture committee member, robert marshall and lonnie chen, you don't want to miss any of those gentlemen. but right here, right now, our stop story, u.s.-china trade, president trump and china's president xi-jinping agreeing to resume trade negotiations with a promise not to impose additional tariffs on chinese imports for now. tucker carlson has an exclusive interview with president trump airing tonight. here's what president trump said about his meeting with president xi. >> you just recently, hours ago, met with the chinese president, xi-jinping. >> i did. >> are you closer do you think
7:06 am
after that meeting to a trade deal. >> i think so. we had a he very good meeting. he wants to make a deal, i want to make a deal, probably the largest deal ever made of any kind, not only trade. we got along very well. we understand each other. dagen: joining me now the new voice ceo, herman cain. what do you mai make of this tr? >> i believe that the truce is an indication that these negotiations are negotiations. unfortunately, too many people do not understand the difference between a trade war and trade negotiations. and the fact that there has been declared a truce says that they are still talking and that they are still negotiating and i think that's a very good sign. dagen: herman, but if you -- we're suffering even in a small way, if american companies and consumers are suffering, certainly the farmers are and
7:07 am
china agreed to buy more u.s. farm products as part of the truce, but how is that not a war? >> it's not a war. you said it. some people are suffering in a small way but the president's role is to try to end up with something in a big way. that's why you're going to hear a lot of little tone tones and e narratives and sound bites about how people are suffering. you cannot make a trade deal based upon sound bites and it's unfortunate that some people may suffer in a small way in the short term. i respect what the president is doing. it's called negotiations. and the truce that you brought up earlier is an example of what you have to do in order to try and get a real deal. dagen: herman, jonathan hoenig is here, he has a question. >> i want to ask you, what is the purpose of the trade war?
7:08 am
the president cited every reason under the sun from trade deficits, which really haven't changed at all, to ip theft, potential for ip theft which is essentially unenforceable even if a deal comes to a head. what is the measure, demonstrable measure for success the that the president or lighthizer will use to get us out of this trade war which has been largely self-imposed by the president himself. >> jonathan, i respect you tremendously. it is not a trade war. it is a trade negotiation. and here is the measure. >> i'm just quoting from the president who mentioned a trade war, his words, sir. >> jonathan, let m let me answer question. level the playing field is the measure and that's what this president is trying to do. you cannot negotiate a deal through sound bites. you cannot negotiate a deal through the narrative in the media with all due respect.
7:09 am
his whole objective from the beginning has been leveling the playing field and that's what he is attempting to do and that's what's significant about the truce, not that we're in a bad place but a truce says we're in a good place. dagen: the president has moved to let huawei buy high tech equipment from the united states. that's a waiver there, herman. and again, that's been one of the -- certainly the biggest concerns by some in the administration and some around the world is the ability of huawei and the wireless networks that it's building to be tapped by the chinese government. how is that a good move, this waiver? >> dagen, here's what we don't know. this is a complex situation. we don't know all of the elements. the add b administration probaby knows all of the elements that are a part of the negotiations that are going on.
7:10 am
we never know how one element in the media is going to impact the final resolution. that's what i'm trying to say of. give the president and the administration some credit and some slack for negotiating all of these complex items that are involved in this whole china/u.s. relation. dagen: herman, i'm going to say one thing. you said this can't be -- we're not going to fight this through sound bites. the president is a sound bite machine. that's actually how he wages all of these fights, whether he's fighting with the democrats or china on trade, whomever is his adversary that day, it's through sound bites and at which timer, so -- and twitter, so -- >> my response would be, yes, he is a sound bite machine and he throws out sound bites to get some in the media, not all, to go change a rabbit down a road that's not going he anywhere. he does that on purpose.
7:11 am
i find it amusing at times. dagen: i said it all along. he goads, particularly the media, into chasing story and pivoting on a narrative, rather than covering what might be the news of the day of getting -- of basically setting their own pants on fire, so-to-speak. i want to turn to the 2020 race, democratic presidential candidate kamala harris climbing in a new poll, she's up 6 points. former vice president joe biden still leads the pack but lost about 5 points after the debate. herman, your reaction? >> my reaction is all of the democratic presidential wand-to-bees are losers, period. there isn't a winner in the group. i don't care what the polls say. they are all losers for one simple reason. they are all proposing socialist ideas. and i can tell you now that mainstream america is not buying socialist ideas. they are trying to distance
7:12 am
themselves from the other candidates by putting out the most outrageous ideas that they can come up with bu mainstream america is not buying the socialist ideas they're putting on the table. dagen: jessica, to herman's point, the wall street journal over the weekend wrote an editorial, the headline was bernie sanders won the debate, he may not have won the debate but he set the agenda. you saw that. >> i would turn the attention to the 2018 midterms where democrats won 40 seats, hundreds of legislative seats all over the country, running on, quote, socialism. joe biden and amy klobuchar are not socialists. we're in a primary now. i know the right wants to
7:13 am
message on that. but there only is one democratic socialist on stage and that's bernie sanders. dagen: you don't have to call yourself to be in favor of socialist programs. that's herman's point. if you raise your hand -- elizabeth warren has called herself a capitalist. if you raise your hand for eradicating the insurance of 180 million people in favor of a plan run by the government, that sure as heck smells like the soviet union, in terms of wealth confiscation, it definitely sounds like the ussr. >> or breaking up any business. dagen: or breaking up businesses. >> breaking up businesses. with all due respect, jessica is wrong. they are all socialists. here's what they're trying to do. they're trying to say that they are not socialists but they keep proposing socialist ideas. and when all of them raise their hand and say they want to provide health insurance for illegals, that's socialism. and medicare for all means no
7:14 am
choices for the rest of us. dagen: i'll let you respond later, jessica. we have to go because we're running out of time. herman cane, thank you for being here. protests in hong kong, more demonstrations coming up. i can't tell you who i am or what i witnessed, but i can tell you liberty mutual customized my car insurance so i only pay for what i need. oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no... only pay for what you need. liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ on a scale of one to five? one to five? it's more like five million. there's everything from happy to extremely happy. there's also angry. i'm really angry clive! actually, really angry. thank you. but what if your business could understand what your customers are feeling... and then do something about it. turn problems into opportunities. thanks drone. customers into fanatics change the whole experience. alright who wants to go again? i do! i do! i have a really good feeling about this.

new all-time high as we kick off the second half of the year. this coming as today marks the first day of trading for the third quarter. the s&p a 500 ending its strongest june yet. investors eyeing potential increased risk in volatility and into the summer and fall. joining us now, chief equity market strategist, phil orlando. major rally in stocks this morning because of this trade truce with china but, again, a muted reaction certainly in the bond market. you're not seeing a big selloff in treasuries. is this stock rally lasting? >> if you look at the balance of the second half of the year, the answer in our mind is yes. we think we get to a 3100 record high on the s&p 500. we see the potential for increased volatility late summer, early fall. for exactly what we're seeing right now. we go back to the fomc meeting two weeks ago, the market priced
7:26 am
in with certainty that the fed is going to start cutting rates at the july 31st meeting. the only question is are they going to cut 25 basis points or 50 basis points. we think that's not right. you look at just what's happened the last two days, we got better than expected inflation news on friday, the core pce. we got excellent news out of the g-20 meeting. we're going to get those discussions rolling. as we continue to look at at a series of sign posts over the course of the month, we're going to get adp and claims and nonfarm payrolls this week. wee think they're going to be better than expected for june, reversing what we thought was a weak may. we'll get an update on ppi and cpi next week. we'll get second quarter corporate earnings starting and second quarter gdp later in the month. if all of those numbers are reasonably good, and we think they will be, there's a chance that the federal reserve may say you know what, maybe we don't need to cut on july 31st. maybe we can put that decision
7:27 am
off until the fomc meeting in the middle of september. given the fact that the market is so convinced that the fed is going to start aggressively cutting at the end of the month, we think that that potentially sets the market up for disappointment. dagen: that means the market hasn't traded up on good economic market news, only traded up on cheaper money from the federal reserve. >> i think they'll be disappointed with the federal reserve not cutting at the end of july. the data points we're seeing are exactly what we're looking for. we think, for example, second quarter gdp, we're at 2.3%. consensus is 1, 9. the feeling is that the market, the economy is a lot weaker than it really is and we think that the expectation of fed easing is a very powerful stimulant for this market. dagen: inverted yield curve, treasury yield on the 10 year at 2%, a little above this morning and consumer confidence fell to a two and-a-half year low. >> so with the 10 year hovering around 2, looking at the end of the year as you just did for stocks, is the 10 year at 2 and-a-half or 1 and-a-half?
7:28 am
>> to some degree that is a question of what's going on in germany and japan. now, the market in the woul u.s. would say, well, yields are at 2%, we have an inverted yield curve and that's suggesting we're looking at a recessionary environment. we don't think that's the right approach. you have negative yields in germany and japan, creating undue pressure in the u.s. market. as we look at an improvement in economic growth in the second half of the year, which i think is an out-of-consensus view, yields should back up to that two and-a-half percent neighborhood as opposed to down to 1 and-a-half percent and we're on the version of recession. >> it's always said that markets climb a wall of worry. warren buffet said investors should be fearful when others are greedy. are we more on the greedy side given the markets are an all-time high or more on the
7:29 am
fearful side? >> i think the market is on the greedy side as dagen pointed out. we're going to hit an all-time record today. what we di at federated last friday, we reduced our equity overweight from 5% to 3% in a balanced account in part because we expected good news out of the g-20. we thought stocks would rally up and we are looking ahead to the end of july with what could be potential disappointment on what the fed may or may not do. dagen: it's a a gordon gekko market. >> that's a reference i understood. >> a big cell phone, the size of a brick. dagen: we know what happened, at least in '87, don't we. >> keep in mind, '87 ended up for the year. market crashed in '87 but ended up higher. dagen: thank you for the reminder of that. in 1998 there's been some comparison, maybe from the long-term capital management collapse and the russian debt
7:30 am
crisis but again, the federal reserve swoops in and you had market that recovered by the end of the year. >> you've also got three international issues that are cropping up towards the end of october. we moved the brexit deadline out to halloween. draghi's eight year term expires on halloween. we don't know who the replacement is. japan is making a decision on whether or not to increase the vat tax from 8% to 10% to take effect on halloween. the last two times theup neap te increased the vat tax, the japanese economy went into recession. there's three international issues out there on the hour rye b son that could spook -- horizon that could spook investors. dagen: phil, good to see you. please come back very soon and have a happy fourth. >> you too. dagen: facebook's misinformation battle, the tech giant taking new steps ahead of the 2020 election. a kid friendly lucksy ride,

and particularly in our ag community, but at the same time we're going to have short-term pain in order to get some long-term gain. dagen: when is the long-term gain coming? because again, this is just a resumption of the trait trade negotiations with a waiver for huawei which is certainly some people might be concerned about that, even people working within the white house. >> well, that is something a that we have to keep a close eye on and we are certainly concern about it in congress. it's something that we talk about quite often. i think you're seeing the results already. look, people think that the economic sanctions don't work but they do. people think that tariffs don't work, but they do. and this is causing china a lot of problem. this is why they're coming back to the table now. it's hurting their economy. it's hurting them, these tariffs are. dagen: tariffs work, jonathan? >> well, that's what they keep telling us. congressman, is there any sense of looking back what happened, for example, with president bush in the early 2000s with his
7:38 am
steel and aluminum tariffs. those in fact long-term cost a lot of jobs. i know you've said it and the president has said it a few times, we need to be patient, short-term pain. at what point does the short-term pain become a problem given the fact that tariffs are taxes paid for by americans. >> well, look, we've had exemptions and exceptions to some of these tariffs and we've had them come through our office. we a applied for them and in some cases been successful in helping some of our constituents, some of the companies in our district to get out from underneath the tariffs. at the same time, look, we do have to be patient. i'm very confident in what the president is doing right now and how he's handling this situation. i think he's bringing china back to the table and -- but, listen, if we stop now, we'll never do it. we've got to continue on. i think we ought to do it even more. i say, you know, listen, put the
7:39 am
pedal to the metal. let's really put the pressure on them. make them straighten up, play right, make them stop stealing our intellectual property. make them stop being a bad actor. dagen: i want to ask, so what is putting the hammer down? are you advocating for 25% tariffs on every dollar of imports in the united states? is that what you're saying? >> no, i -- listen, i'm not going to tell the president or the administration how to do this. i'm going to support them because i do think they are headed in the right direction and i do think they're doing the right thing. we have to call china out. we have to do it now. we cannot just pull back and stop. we're in this. we need to finish the drill. dagen: i want to move on to the border crisis, congressman. president trump appealing a judge's ruling that blocked his administration from building part of the wall. the president looking to use funds intended for anti-drug activities, arguing the wall would keep out illegal immigrants and drugs. you visited the border over the weekend. what did you see?
7:40 am
>> well, i would tell you, the president's absolutely correct. there is a crisis on our border many this is second time i've been to the border and it's gotten even worse. we were at one area, one point of entry where some of the illegal aliens were coming in. we were there for less than 1 a -- 1 a 5 minutes. in that 15 minutes, three groups of people came up. that one spot, that one area, over 1,000 people a day come into this country illegally, over 1,000 people a day. we've got to address the situation. it is a crisis and the president is spot-on. >> congressman, this is jessie. thank you for joining us. i'm curious since you were at the border and we got the good news that the senate and house have passed a funding bill, what do you think the next step is and what do you think the likelihood of fixing our asylum system. >> well, first of all, we've got to do four things.
7:41 am
the first, we've got to secure our border. that means building a in certain areas. it also means technology. it also means boots on the ground. we've got to address our immigration law as you pointed out. we've got to tighten them up. we've got to address the flores amendment, some of the other asylum laws. we've got to build up our infrastructure, particularly our court infrastructure. increase the number of judges and get the process flowing even quicker. and fourthly, we've got to address what i refer to as the magnets. what's bringing the people up here? is it the highway, the quality of living? you know, we've done this in one way. if you look at the usmca, what that bill -- what that trade agreement is going to do is to increase the pay in mexico for some of their people. that in itself would deter people from coming into this country. but the number one thing we have to do is secure our border. dagen: congressman, good to see you. thank you so much earl buddy

like any other president that we've seen ever in the history of the country so his rhetoric and the way that he thinks but, again, we've got an economy in the united states, that is -- it is a strongest it has been in a decade, and we just entered the longest i know president obama recovery too but we are now the longest in the longest roir we have had wages microbialingly growing faster than they have been during this entire recovery period, so, again, you might not like rhetoric might not like a lot of what he does but a lot of policies are bearing fruit i want to get to former white house trade official, clete whm why do we go from here what would watch for? >> what i thought was really interesting, about the meeting, this weekend was that there was no deadline that was put in place. and traditional the president really likes deadlines because they give him leverage over the other side, put a lot of pressure on the other side to make a deal. the fact that there was no
8:11 am
deadline here, suggests to me, a couple things, first i think the president thinks that he already has the sufficient leverage over china secondly, that the u.s. is not going to sell out for a bad deal here. it is willing to take time that it needs, to get the right deal. and, lastly, i think it shows that, you know, maybe the administration thinks it is found a sweet spot on tariffs in the fact that there is still general political support for what the president is doing on china. at this level of tariffs maybe that doesn't exist if they go much beyond this. >> sorry, okay. >> go ahead. >> i was going to continue and say, what i hope happens is that you see something similar to what happened in argentina, where the leaders got together, you know a lot of diplomacy is personal as just mentioned in the previous segment you have productive period can ultimately lead to outcome but it is far from done deal. >> you mentioned the leverage that he has, the tool of
8:12 am
choice has been tariffs, are you suggesting that the the other leverage he has is the strength, relative to weakness of china's economy overnight our time, another report came out showing that there -- factory sector is slowing again is that part of the leverage strength of our economy. >> absolutely i think the relative strengths of our economy is one of the most important if not the most important thing that we've got going here, and as long as we are in upward trajectory they soften did president is going to be in a really strong position. dagen: we were talking about trump's unorthodox approach to relationships, and what he has taken on. and i have had so many conversations with people who i grew up with, people from my hometown, this is a -- taking on china is taking on the biggest threat to american way of life, in the following
8:13 am
sense, people where i grew up watched good middle class jobs with pension security, in textile manufacturing, in furniture manufacturing in industries like that, get traded away as handout to u.s. corporation that ship those jobs overseas and just gave away intellectual property, in order for access to that market. and cheap labor they traded them for working, hourly jobs with no safety net, and traded them for a bunch of plastic garbage in their front yards, with inflatable pools christmas decorations president trump has finally identified this and said enough! and called and called china out on it called american corporations out on it, that it sacrificed u.s. jobs for cheap labor and access to that market. that is really astonishing. >> you are absolutely invite where i am from kenosha
8:14 am
wisconsin similar experiencing in manufacturing sector left our city because of unfair competition from china and from others so i think it is high piem time we take this on i want to elaborate for a second, what you have not asked me about huawei. >> i was gonna take -- ball run with it. >> i am itching to talk about this i think president's critics are dead wrong no one has been tougher on china tougher on huawei than this president, and even if the administration looks at modifying its measures on huawei the way it is discussing he is going to be tougher on china tougher on huawei than anyone else in history furthermore i think if you look at substance of this there is a way you can distinguish is between what huawei is doing in the neither works with a significant real national security threat and can u.s. companies simply sell components for their cell phones? so you can draw distinction i think what the administration

to your country from the president of the united states. there has been no progress at all they have done nothing. >> joining me now former mitt romney policy director marco rubio senior advisor, lonnie, great to see you this morning what do you make of the president's meeting with kim jong-un? >> well, dagen i think an important overture i think we have to see what happens obviously, the optics of this are tremendously interesting. this is a historic moment for president trump, historic moment for the relationship between the united states and north korea. i think there is a question though about where all this leads. in fact, if we get to the progress particularly on denuclearization the key point, after the hanoi summit, in the follow-up actually after singapore summit north koreans have not he necessarily taken the kind of steps we want them to take, if they were serious about denuclearization it remains to be seen what happens, but
8:36 am
certainly this engagement i think is a positive step forward and hopefully will lead to better outcomes in the future. >> if particularly reduces the chances of new north korean tests -- but there is a lot to offer councilman right as "the wall street journal" editorial page points out, those who will represent the north in any resume negotiations we don't know who that is, and previous translators negotiations vanished without a trace, then kim jong-un wants us to lift sanctions at least in part before he takes baby steps to disclose research labs test facilities and nuclear stockpiles much less dismantling those facilities. >> yeah i think short run here is probably positive, in the sense that we are not going to see addition nuclear testing home won't see testing or firing of ballistic weapons either i think the question
8:37 am
now going forward what are north koreans actually willing to do, how much progress are they actually willing to make? denuclearization, on the korean peninsula is a difficult question that involves not just north koreans but he potentially other players in the region as well we have to see where it goes there is adage if talking they are not shooting at each other so i think that at least, is some progress to look forward to -- >> myou were the one brat up the kospi the fact that the kospi in south korea the market had literally no reaction. >> that is sort have to lonnie to the point you just made, obviously we can lift sanctions, north korea do we need neighborhoods countries like south korea maybe china to be party to sort of the negotiations or honest brokers to get north korea to the table about? >> well, the south koreans have been very dovish this administration in south korea president moon's administration, has been

8:40 am
for whoever the democratic nominee is look, that question that was asked in that debate last week, is going to come back to haunt whoever it is because frankly all of the democrats on that stage said they wanted to take away the plans as you said the hundreds of millions of americans rely on now they want to increase costs they want to make it harder to access doctors, and increase taxes, so i am not sure that is a great posture for the general tlks i think president trump is probably looking forward to running against that platform if that is indeed this platform take aniance it say look i am for medicaid for all not medicare for all reparation of the direction it is very difficult for the democrats to walk that one back. >> i want to bring this up because vice president biden was his response was more nuanced he wants to help fix the what the failings what problems there are in the aca the affordable care act or obamacare mayor pete buttigieg

wants a public option available as quote glide path since you are sitting in the middle of silicon valley i thought that was interesting choice of words for him to use, but, again, that is a road to single payer is it not? >> yeah, i mean look we had this debate back in 2010 they passed obamacare in the first place democrats then actually democrats then rejected the idea of some kind of public option, i precisely because there was concern that public option that government-run plan would end up swallowing up private sector swallowing up plans that people like leaving people with few options but to go on government run coverage and that is not going to be a successful pathway forward if that is where democrats are biden can try to new answered i buttigieg can try to nuance it what they are for some sort of government-run health care i don't see american people being for that come next election. >> can they just fix medicare before they motive on since the hospital fund going broke
