tv Mornings With Maria Bartiromo FOX Business July 22, 2019 6:00am-9:00am EDT
this morning maria exclusive interview is on deck with bank of america chairman and ceo brian they talk about everything from the debt ceiling to trade and more you don't want to miss it and joining conversation this morning pollster and partner president lee carter and mitch rochelle and market strategist at third seven advisors michael bloc much to discuss. mike already says that he has something outrageous to says on china trade so hold that thought. we're going get to it shortly. okay. futures are pointing to high per open this morning, we have gains across the board at 52 point gain on dow futures investors are waiting for business yi week of the earning season last week losing week per markets real whiplash whether federal reserve will cut quarter of a point half a point again seems like markets are trading all on monetary policy. but what about earnings? ten of the 30 so one-third of the dow components more than within quarter of the s&p 500 report this week, and big names
to watch facebook, and tesla coming out on wednesday google parent alphabet amazon on thursday. mike block what are are you expecting? >> we have some big names reporting this week and for much of this year i've been saying that it is all about growth. well this is some of the big company chances to sew that can facebook and amazon and alphabet really answer some of the concerns? last week we saw netflix blow up because their non-u.s. ads weren't good but we saw microsoft excel on cloud and what's it going to be for amazon the growth in retail sales? is this going to be about cloud and alfa bet respond from last can't and continue to be the leadership here? and would that be novels for the overall market a good thing when four stocks are -- are amount for all of the gains in the s&p 500? >> right so to your point this is the front page story in "the wall street journal" above the full story i'll hold it up right there. i'm a nerd i have newspapers.
so it is microsoft apple amazon and facebook accounted for 19% of the s&p 500 total return this year, and i think it's the best performance so far in 2019 biggest gain since 98 so bubbly. >> what's interesting when all of the noise geopolitically china, trade, and concerns about global economic growth those are the companies that investors are sort of flocking to but what's interesting is treasury is flight to safety clash as are big names and interesting how the market transformed from being 500 stocks to four that people run to when they're worried about what's going on around world. >> we talked about fed i mention briefly that federal reive decision and whiplash in markets last week what was it, it was williams from the new york fed on thursday. >> williams getting academic on pus talking ab half percent neutral rate freaking everyone out.
he's doing this his entire career what he does. >> they have to sending out a balloon on friday saying wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute -- right only going to be a quarter of a point. >> comedy by the way i want to upon the out when we talk about pang fang stocks that's fama for us finance geeks is funny because that is guy who told us to buy small cap value opposed to large cap stock. >> and french. didn't mean to lead you out. we want to talk about economic numbers. ahead of the federal reserve decision next week so question get first reading on second quarter growth out on friday. ahead of central bank decision next week and again we were talking about interest rate cuts but in terms what's coming out this week new home sales numbers also durable goods scheduled on thursday and second quarter so what about second quarter growth what are we expecting at that 3.1% growth in first quarter? >> gdp atlanta fed at 1.6 which
they sometimes have been wildly inaccurate but i have a good feeling about second quarter because if you look at the earnings the banks all talked about how the consumer was really, really strong and drove their business. you look at the retail sales number that came out last week that number was strong i think the consumers driving this economies and consumer fairly confident so i'm -- fairly optimistic about second quarter gdp higher than that. >> interesting to see what will happen with wall street, though, that's a different. we've got so many great number and consumer confidence and we're seeing -- real estate not doing as well. so i'm curious to see how that's going to play out. >>confidence holding new this environment because again i have a moment and we're going to talk about continued fight with the squad between president trump and the four young congress women. but i'm driving around throughout this south and roads are just wall to qawl traffic. it is bumper to butcher traffic
people are out, they're spend. and i thought you know what, i wonder how many of these people who are out enjoying like the lowest unemployment rate that we've had in nearly a half a century, and these incredible wage gains preem out, they're driving they're enjoying their summer despite hundred degree temperatures, they're not paying attention to that. now i wondered how confidence is reacting to just the feel good vibes about the economy regardless of what's come out of washington. >> consumer confidence set all time high when you look at i'm not it is all time high but continues to increase, and despite the fact that people are saying there's a recession coming that numbers are inflated that we're above all things that you hear other and over again that's not what consumer is saying but spending feeling good and better in the economy and number of 201 where we are today unbelievable how much better people are feeling about where we are as a country and about our future. >> despite fact that some of the candidates on the democratic side and campaign frail are trying to talk to this country
into recession. >> that i think is one the most fascinating thing line trying to talk us out of feeling good so if you look at messaging elizabeth warren others are doing and it is myc growth it is not working for the man but that's what they're trying to say that working for you. it is working for wealthy and working for companies. but when you survey people and talk to people that's not how they feel but the best economy that we've ever had, and you know, and nonsupervisor wages have been growing faster than wages of manager that lower skill individuals in this country. their wages areing fast e than people in some inabout stances that have college degrees or higher. so again you have to be very careful when you tell somebody -- about up you don't really feel as good as you -- as you think you do. >> talk about you feel that they could come across like they're not telling the truth to people. >> that's right ting the thing they need to understand is there's different you say it all of the time a policy versus politics, and that i think
people don't like the politics they're not optimistic about tone and tenner of our environment right now but they feel very good about the economics and their pocket book. >> the president still still tweeting about these four female lawmakers saying this he doesn't think he said this yesterday morning i think it was about 8:00 in the morning that he doesn't think they're cape aable of loving our country so this continues. i'm going to talk to you later in the the show about what's the method to this madness here. so what's the -- there is one. because again people would come up to me -- [laughter] and ask me to explain what was going on. like you know, not today. [laughter] so well this is on deck this week in washington wednesday former special counsel robert mueller testifying before the house jew dish about area and intelligence committees, maria bartiromo sat down with ranking judiciary committee member georgia congressman about what he plans to ask robert mueller
i'll get everybody's reaction. >> are you asking specifically if he looked at the origin of that investigation why they started to investigate donald trump in the first place? >> we've got great guys on our side and gals and have pointed questions to make sure that american people understand this is not a vacuum that democrats have completely to say that president wases doing something wrong. we're going to also go back to corrupt ball and others i think as you look at it in general need to be part of this pirp. remember the mueller report is a one sided report. that is not been questioned from other side. this is our chance to do that. >> lee what do you expect? [laughter] what? >> expecting a mess. [laughter] you know, i also wonder a lot of timeses e me to do about nothing and anticipating so much. inthat we're going to hear had a lot more from sidelines that we're going to see when you get down to it. >> does market care? >> i don't think market care what's interesting is so much time passed since this dust up last time. i think redusting it up -- not only market but i think vote
reverse just going to say -- getting people made up their minds. >> so we're saving this to the end you have a bomb you're going to land about the china trade tell us before we go to break. >> yeah hit me. i'll say this quickly what's going on here is this -- fact of the matter is and we can grow and disagree and how we feel president xi in china doesn't trust donald trump full stop he lookses at iran deal and we can say that was a terrible deal, of course, trump did away with it. the chinese look at this and they're saying he breaks deals we can't make deal with him and that's kind of mindset now. there are of the mindset oflet wait this out until next year and lose election and no hurry because we don't trust him or deal we make with him. all of us can with that renal and that's what's really happening in russia. we went this not trusting chinese because of the threat of intellectual prosecute and force to render a technology, and again, using huawei to
essentially as a trap door to spy on the world. the united states and other nations, so all of that is irrelevant. thing i'm saying is everything -- >> it is not irrelevant. it is relevant not irrelevant. go ahead. >> saying this thought that both sides play nice shake is hands and make some deal that's going make markets go higher whether it works or not is remain to be seen but i'm telling you about that mindset going on in china from what i'm getting from high place people is they don't want to make a deal. >> but if nothing changes in terms of where we are right now, mitch that's necessarily bad for market you have a market you have investors and corporate executive they are graping with existing tariffs that we have on chinese goods so status, quote, from here until even after the election would be okay. for the economy and markets. . most likely i think as time goes on corporate managers are less and less convinced that
anything is beginning to happen and they're just moving forward. dges moving production. there's a lot going on and china and samsung moving more production here to the u.s. eve this a big chip facility in austin texas and moving more and moving parts here and yes there could be adaptation there's no deal and no progress, let's see how it works out many my point is there's an expectation they'll get a deal done once summer is over. i'm not seeing it. >> okay. how about ratifying that -- new nafta we'll take that -- get through that. let get the infrastructure open the desk drawer. open the desk drawer take it out. move it to the floor. >> no we're too busy fighting with each other. and tweeting sack on a tear major technology companies powering the markets recent gains what it means for earning season straight ahead plus lion king roars at box office disney

market last week. but will earnings turn it off around? we have megaearns on tap economic numbers, out and then possible rate cut joining me now wealth portfolio market strategist mike lee i think it is about the feds and what federal reserve is going to do you saw what markets did last week it is like quarter of like half a point yay. oh it is only a quarter of a point. what about earningsings here? >> i would say expectations of this quarter are superlow. we're looking at right now it is down 1.8, 1.9% in revenue up over 4% and big miss and get rewarded and you know, take it down. respect iively but everything is about the fed right now do question get a rate cut i think we're 25 basis point won and done i am i'm not 00% sure at ts next meeting but fed can throw us for a little bit of a curve ball and reward us later because
it is ahead of the ski tips here to get 50 or 75 basis point in this meeting or by the end of the year is insane. over the last few week let's look at data that we go a blowout jobs number we've got new york fed -- you know, "empire" state manufacturing blowing away estimates, the philly fed coming in four times estimates. retail sales beating inflation data higher there's no reason to cut rates now other than to stop the dollar from appreciating if substantially against the rest of the world. >> mike. just one thought i'm still bullish on dollar rate cut or not. you know to ecb is is still cuts factors take the dollar down but a matter of run so far ahead that it is going to come in. >> yeah. well -- i agree with your thesis to helicopter to get stronger and a lot of that has to do with tax cut and regulatory reform the u.s. is a much more tractive
investment than it was years ago. because it is much easier to do business. and what's happening is a lot of growth in the rest the world is getting sucked back to noshing so as long as we are the best game this town and that gap continues to widen i don't see how dollar cannot continue to get stronger and fed is not going to zero. >> if dollar continues to get strong that continues to weigh on corporate earnings but half of the revenue of the s&p 500 earned abroad right? so -- about yes and i think that's a largely baked into expectations and make it is more difficult to say, you know, to manufacture and kind of remake rework base here, but the flipside of that is a lot of tech companies right that are continuing to be tbroa grow like that is dollar irrelevant and that had i think markets go much, much higher here because we're at 17 tiles forward earnings the economy -- like you were just saying about i think gdp estimates will be too low for this quarter as they were or for the first quarter
and things continue to pick up through next half of the year into the year. >> even if fed doesn't deliver majorities will be disappointed if fed doesn't cut. >> i think you're going to continue to get this language may be too aggress i-why they came out so expect to get something here. either by the way of transparency or rate cut right here but i think we're one and done hard to ration allize that you're cut rates. >> three months ago on this show that market was trying to bully the fed by their behavior and in the fourth quarter last year to say you've got to be more accommodative so if they don't get the cut they're looking for how do you think market will react and start bulling fed again? >> selloff for investors out there sitting with cash that is your opportunity coming in. so i think at this next meeting no matter what we get, you're most lukely going to get a selloff because hype thetically
get 75 basis points i don't think we are. market will sell off because they sell the news and what does fed know that we don't, if you get 50 basis point of kind of in line with expectation so that's saw the news get 25 basis points that's a huge disappointment so ting this is a sell of the news type trade event for an entry point. but for those of us that are sitting in this for a -- long line, like just this threw this is business cycle continue to go and go, and go you don't have a ton of leverage in a economy and get a little bit elevated there but on consumer side if you look at debt service as percentage of take a home income it is lowest level in 30 years. you -- you look at consumer confidence sediment all near the high fest levels ever 1.3 million more jobs looking for work really unbelievable shape right now. >> i want to point out the dollar does stay stronger what
sector benefit one of they will is u.s. e retail. u.s. consumer has more purchases power everything else help constant. you left out in materials of investor pushing fed to cut rates, and -- who use the world bullying. we left out how the president might react to a dollar that continues to be strong and a fed that doesn't cut rates aggressively i'll leave it at that. but afraid to follow zero hedge should make policy based on price of the s&p 500. but it seems like that plays a much greater role than it should and in this day and age. >> dependent full step. >> mike good to see. coming up maria exes collusive sit down with bank of america brian covering topics from debt ceiling to trade negotiations plus a real live jaws moment caught on camera. ♪ >> he's one.

mornhan. here we are in the longest expansion anybody has ever seen and we're dealing with potentially another government shutdown. will that end the expansion will markets get disrupted by this ?fnt i think first i think everybody agrees it shouldn't happen. the problem is 18 month ago everybody agreed it shouldn't happen and fall of 17. and it happened and so ping we have to be careful that unintended consequence can happen and environment is not as strong as remember coming in early 18 we have tax form capacity and thought it would happen so tremendous enthusiasm in the business community it is at different now so ping -- i think that's why secretary mnuchin and speaker plea sew working hard on it and best intention not to have an issue but defected economy and debate it could be affected again and i think that along with three or four things are needed to get resolved -- the correct way in order to keep this expansion going and in the united states and ping all of them are solvable and they got
to get it done. >> what else needs to get done? >> first you have to get u.s. mca through and they have to stabilize that relationship between north and south partners because it is good for all of the countries they have a deal worked out but they have to push it through. >> if we can't get a deal that's agreed upon with our friends imagine getting deals done with others. because that brings it so you have debt ceiling that's fall issue to make sure they get it done because i think that will send a signal that united states is pushing forward with agreement on trade i think then next couple of issues one we have to get through brexit is in general economy make sure it doesn't disrupt too much and then we've got china to keep it from blowing up. but you know there's very difficult issues this, and the business community around world knows that this has to be resolved it in -- it is with the administration and others clearly saying you know these are difficult issues. but issues it blows up it could be a detriment so they need to
keep it going along with a positive result but i think if you take three or four things baskly u.s. mca, the debt ceiling, brexit, china, if we can keep those in right place i think the economy and u.s. will continue to progress well. only really okay so how does back drop feel to you right now you reported 7 billion dollars in net income last week. what did that tell you? what did quarter highlight for you in materials of the strength and weakness in the economy today? >> what driveses our earnings it is all of the -- american economy in our great teams working so our consumer made 3 billion it shall our global bank business which is company, you know, corporate banking made $2 billion and made a billion of market so spread around all good performance. but the consumer business even is talking about, because in that you've seen consumer strong in the united states spending money borrowing responsibility and employed wages are growing faster than people thought you
see 3% handles on that, and their expectations are highs. their confidence although not quite as high as highest point but still very high and end of the day two-thirds of the u.s. is economy by people spending money and if you do spend money small business will be successful, and we'll go on. if you look on business side small business loans outis standing are up from 35 to 37 billion a year about 6% small business of borrowing again they're confidence tip down a little bit but that's because the world got more complex and if you look at mid-size companies they're spending a little less oncap pex because incentives are -- sort of through the system now. but they're very solid everybody is fine and brace for please and move unserpght and be more aggressive. i'm glad you saidcap x is because there's a attack about about uncertainty over china, u.s. mca now keeping sitting on cash. but they're spending on
technology i know you're spending a lot on technology i'll get to that in a second. but businesses are allocating money to important issues that they need. >> it's slowed down about half of the rate. but still there, and the real question is could be faster with that certainty. but people sort of adjusted to that issue of the moment. and if you look at companies you talk about to company anybody in china seen a slowdown affect 20 wsh 30% of the business and slowdown yet 20% so not impact across the whole platform but that impact they're worried about but business is saying about what's going on and amazing ow efficient business has become in terms of the ability to ploy modest amount of expension get a lot of pop out of it. 300 billion in technology and we have with flat expenses in our economy for four years in a rose and if you think about that with multiple transaction growth six, 7, 8, 10% with sales forth growth in materials of new
people we can pace for that by investing technology and both for customer and for ourselves to keep improving the company. and our efficiency ratio has gone down that's what business is doing around world they're learning how to become incrementally more efficient through all of this wonderful technology and capabilitieses that they have. >> well that's one of the ways you were able to turn company around in last decade because of your focus on keeping expenses tight or investing in technology. more of maria exclusive interview with bank of america ceo brian coming up next hour. but first, a if dangerous heat wave covering much of the country cheryl casone has more. hey, cheryl. >> l dagen so an extreme heat wave is blamed fors at least six deaths. from the carolinas to maine daytime highs reach pupper 90s yesterday. here in new york city coned reported that about 50,000 homes and businesses lost power and expected to cool off, though, as cold front is lowly going to

halliburton post hg 5.93 billion so almost there not quite but as we can tell from the premarket it seem like most investors are focus on that profit number so watch halliburton also watch large per competitor and be off to race. back to you. >> deirdre thank you so much. on fernings for us coming up, the deep dive into deep fakes. we take a look at the technology behind bogus videos and potential political impact . next. this is the couple who wanted to get away who used expedia to book the vacation rental which led to the discovery that sometimes a little down time can lift you right up. expedia. everything you need to go. expedia. can't see what it is yet.re? what is that? that's a blazer? that's a chevy blazer?

something you might have heard of the technology allows anyone to create a video of an event that never happenedded and now that it is posing threat to business and our political system joining me now morning anchor for fox news headlines 24/7 on siriusxm is 15 brett larson. >> terrifying right we've seen the videos there's a video of president obama, i believe he's praising president trump. there's a video of mark zuckerberg saying i'm going it take facebook off the interpret because that's right thing to do, obviously, if you watch that video you would think wait what now? but you might catch you offguard and think it is real. now we're hearing reports that they're using this same deep technology to impersonate people voices so high profile ceos, to call their other executives and ask for money to help they will out because they're in some sort of danger. it is a similar situation to -- that if this is something i've
experienced where a friend messages you on facebook and says hey, i'm in, traveling through europe and if i lost my passport and i need cash because i'm at hotel and all of my stuff is stolen and for a second you might fall for it and think that's interesting time it happened to me i had happened to be in europe and my gosh convenient i'm in paris. you know where are you? but i have to point this out you were just in new york yesterday. so how is it that you're already in europe and you've lost all of your stuff in so, obviously, the person who hacked into that account can can was then on to me and if i got blocked but what these guys are doing is taking speeches that cross-examination ohs have given ted talk as putting it into artificial intenls and like alexa like siri google home voice has ability to speak like another person and say anything you want. >> who is behind technology and more importantly the abuse of the technology? >> these are going to be some hard-core hack percent who have figured some stuff out. >> domestic or firm?
>> i would say probably foreign. probably from the countries that we like to spar with. that, you know, computers are they work everywhere. anywhere you can plug them in and access internet you can do this kind of stuff. >> scary because they can predispose to believe and perpetuate itself and this is supersuperdangerous stuff and people can't difference in precinct stories but you see video and audio it is real. >> especially if it plays to your existing confirms bias so we're talking about, you know, imagine if you the a presidential candidate's voice inters impersonated go through entire interview who may be not in the joke and we live in a -- 24 democratic candidate and run who happens to be in the white house. imagine if you -- if you know you have a talk show and somebody says the president
was united states is on the phone and wants to talk to you you're not gong to say no and you hear it and think well it sowpgd like the president. >> you only need to make that mistake and get buoyed. it -- that is absolutely true. and that happens but with what love howard stern no disrespect to howard stern. . but you know it is an interesting hate to say interesting time by kind of a frightening situation where you can do this. >> what are social media companies doing about it, though, ahead what of the election particularly next year? the election is -- the campaigns are whatting now. what are they doing about it now? >> what are they doing about this? >> nothing -- facebook did the the war room for the 2018 midterm elections where they trieded to stay on top this stuff. this -- to me this feel like a toothpaste out of the tube situation where it is going to be -- we're just users now it really fall on use reverse going to have more more salve city about
what they hear. candidates hearen you know protecting their messaging. >> i guess if it goes viral then they can shut it down but the one that seems real that influences a small group of people that's the danger. exactly. or the, you know, question use this in a campaign phone call. we use fake audio. >> the more this goes on and more that social media companies have allowed, it is not just a opinion it is literally fake manufactured news. it makes the -- the real media companies and the old newspapers much more relevant because more and more people are going to lean on them to again it is the reporters responsibility to vet and vet and vet and make sure something is -- is real and accurate. i think it benefit the real media companies in this environment. >> absolutely. and i've gotten a lot of flak for saying this in past but it is rules of journalism we have a
gate keeper there's somebody who sit there and says hold on a second they said what in a telephone interview let's fact check double check triple check before we with go through that whereas if you're -- no offense to bloggers or twitterers, you put it out there. you know did you double check, did you call? simple rules? 101 rulism. can you having ton high school. take a class. the kids you know who i would -- because you're on there again it is like i need to get in on app no i'm not. putting my phone down because that doesn't look right like there's a lot more to that story. : wait until the story is fully told. fox news headlines every morning siriusxm 115 thanks, brett still ahead major earnings on tap a ten dow component this is week out with earnings ahead of the fed possibly cutting interest rates next week. is welcome wedding crasher president trump drops in on a new jersey couple saying their vows over the weekend.

friday, again hopes dashed as a half point rate cut next week from the federal reserve. in europe we have slight gains to report in england, france and germany. asia was a different story, declines across the board. growing tensions with iran, prime minister theresa may holding an emergency meeting following the seizure of a u.k. tanker by iran's revolutionary guard. iran reportedly detaining 17 of its own citizens, accused of acting as spies for the cia. johnson sanjohnson & johnson fig claims that baby powder causes cancer. a closer look at that legal battle. the tight job market hitting restaurants. restaurant owners are serving up big perks to keep employees happy. and ja j-lo's famous dress inspiring sneakers. we take a look at the latest
dress inspired by the pop star's big birthday. here to break it down this morning, lee carter, pwc partner mitch rochell and market strategist and third seven advisor's michael block. welcome one and all. what say you? what are you watching? >> earnings, this week it's all about earnings. you also have economic data. the pmi, purchasing manager's index, also comes out for services and goods. i'm keeping an eye on that. i think the fed will be paying close attention to more economic data as they make their decision next week. >> we'll see what the drivers are in this gdp number on friday, whether that confirms how strong the u.s. consumer is and of course these earnings, the same thing. amazon, facebook, can they transcend some of the issues that some of the other companies have had. dagen: i'm going to talk about the thinking behind the messaging out of the white house or out of president trump, rather. that there is a strategy to it. >> there's absolutely a strategy
to it. i didn't think when it first started happening. now i think it is. dagen: when it's still going on, when it's an 8:00 a.m. tweet on a sunday morning. so much more coming up on maria's exclusive interview with brian moynihan, weighing in on the federal reserve's upcoming interest rate decision. tensions soaring in the middle east, iranian officials confirming the arrest of 17 nationals accused of being part of a cia trained spy network. iran is reportedly set to execute several of them. this comes amid heightened hoses tilt in the strait of hormuz laying the prospect of -- delaying the prospect of working with the u.s. and iran. theresa may will host an emergency security session to form a response, one day after the u.s. confirmed it shot down an iranian drone despite iran denying it happened.
joining me now is pennsylvania congressman and member of the house judiciary and armed services committee, guy reshenthaler. what is the u.s.'s next step in taking on iran and ending this hostility. >> thanks for having me on. i appreciate it. when it comes to iran, we've got to look at their actions. air acting out because the trump administration has been a applying maximum pressure to iran. so what they're doing is they're acting out. i think they're even trying to manipulate the cost of oil because they know that the economic sanctions are hurting them and they need to make up for that somewhere. >> congressman, good morning. mitch rochell. many of the military analysts who have been on this network have been talking about iran potentially just punch themselves out, this is all they have and they're going to keep doing it until they can't do it anymore. what's your reaction to that? and whether or not this is going to continue or just be something that's short-lived? >> i think they're going to
continue to act out because as the economic sanctions are hurting the iranian economy, the regime's having a hard time staying in power. they're really acting out, they're trying to get attention especially from the europeans. we have to make sure that we continue to apply maximum economic pressure, make sure the sanctions remain in place and make sure our allies stay with us. great britain has done a great job. we have to make sure the eu stay with us and we continue to amp up the pressure. the trump administration has done an incredible job and the iranian regime is feeling the pain. dagen: i want to move on to digging deeper and investigating the investigators, something that will surely come up when former special counsel robert mueller testifies on wednesday in the house. judiciary committee chair jerry nadler slamming the president with new accusations ahead of the hearing, saying the mueller report presents, quote, very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors.
maria bartiromo sat down with congressman doug collins, the ranking republican on the judiciary committee yesterday, and he late out -- laid out his expectations for the testimony. congressman, listen to this and we'll get your reaction. take a listen. maria: what are you expecting from the mueller testimony on wednesday? >> what we're expecting is another round of was we already know. it's like going back and finding a book on the shelf that looks new and all of a sudden you begin to read it and you find out i already read this before. this is the democrats' time to make the case that they've not been wasting our time and millions of dollars, with hearings going on where they're harassing the president and trying to make pree press releae headlines. maria: what else are the democrats trying to get out of robert mueller and what's the strategy on the republican side? >> well, i think the democrats, what they're trying to do is revive this and make something of it that after being three months out in the public, everybody is wanting to know about the mueller report has
looked into the mueller report. people are beginning to tire. the whole investigation started from the discussion of russian interference in our 2016 election. it's like they forgot about it completely. the republicans have not forgot about where the investigation started. dagen: congressman, what are you going to ask robert mueller? >> i'm a military man. i would never telegraph my next move. [ laughter ] >> what i'm really interested in with mueller is just the start of the investigation. i'm very troubled by the fact that the obama administration weaponized the fbi and they used the fbi to spy on a political campaign. that's really troubling to me and that should be troubling to every american. so i want to focus on that. but i'm not going to telegraph my next move. dagen: right. and the fact that p opposition research pay ford by donald trump's opponents wound up being used to spy on a member of his campaign. the fact that that is
astonishing to most americans. after robert mueller took over as the special counsel at what point did he know that there was no conspiracy with russia, there was no collusion, because the last fisa warrant was renewed in june of 2017 so it was sometime between then and when the next renewal would happen in the fall, but then there was another year until the midterm elections. so why did it take so long? >> right. exactly. mueller had over two years, literally millions of dollars and he produced a 400 some page report. i'll tell you, in the navy we talk bluff, bottom line, up front. here's the bottom line. there's no obstruction, no collusion. the democrats are dragging mueller to the judiciary committee for just political theater. they don't want the american people to know the far left agenda that they're undertaking right now in congress. they don't want to talk about
the green new deal, don't want to talk about taking away private health insurance. so instead, they bring out mueller and they engage in political theater. dagen: i want to get to -- speaking of theater -- [ laughter ] dagen: the war of words continues. president trump stepping up his attacks against the four democratic congresswomen demanding they apologize to america. he tweet ted this. i don't believe four congres congresswomen are capable of loving america, our country. they're destroying the democrat party. they are weak and insecure people who can never destroy our great nation. i'm going to let lee carter get in here. again, the words used to describe even the beginning of this, racist, offensive, glee xenophobic. the president seems to be trying to paint these women as the head of the democratic party and
there's a method to that going into the election next year. >> i think that what started maybe as something that was pretty horrific has turned into something different. i think that what the president is trying to do is define the party as these four women which means that they are far left, that they are very, very progressive and that should be the democrats' worst nightmare. even the new york times had an op ed last week that said donald trump is going to win again if we go too far left, right. that is what he's trying to do. and now the democrats are going to have to define themselves around that and they'll be reacting to donald trump rather than the other way around. so i think it's a very interesting strategy and my question is to the congressman, do you see it that way? do you think democrat party is this party of the squad, of those four women, that's very, very progressive, that's very far left, that has very far left ideas on healthcare and other issues that are very important to the american people? >> i absolutely do. i'm on the floor and i see how
the democrats are operating. i'm in committees and i see how much is controlled by the far left and the four freshmen that get all the attention. i can tell you that someone that paints them as just the squad, they're not the squad, they're the new democrat party. this is no longer the party of jfk. this is the party of aoc. they've taken the democrat party to a very far left, extreme position. just read the green new deal. that want to up end our economy. they want to move us to a socialist system and just read their own words. so this party has moved drastically left. nancy pelosi might be the speaker, but the real leaders are the four freshmen, the squad, they're the ones that are leading the party and they're pushing it in a drastic direction. dagen: i will point this out. before president trump belly-flopped into the middle of what was an intraparty fight where these four congresswomen were fighting with nancy pelosi and they were figuratively
eating each other alive, he belly-flops into the middle of it the friday before this started, enough democrats joined the republicans to block an amendment from alexandria ocasio-cortez, blocked her amendment to a defense bill that would have banned president trump from sending u.s. troops to the border. it was the democrats lining up with the republicans, potentially in reaction to her, but now that's all over with and you've now -- all the democrats have locked arms with each other. >> right. we have to remember that we're still getting things done as republicans, we're moving forward in an agenda and there's other democrats that have joined with us so we can overcome the far left agenda. anybody that wants to minimize the freshman as a squad of four, look at every bill they put forward. the green new deal last time i checked had over 70 co-sponsors. every time aoc or someone from the squad puts forth a bill or
an amendment, they usually have 90 or more co-sponsors. so they have moved the party in a far left direction and that should alarm all americans. dagen: thank you, congressman. good to see you. take care. we'll be watching wednesday. coming up, johnson & johnson in the hot seat, the company facing a keyle key legal battle in ct today. plus wedding crasher in chief, president trump making one couple's vows national news. his impromptu drop-in.

transforming the banking industry. maria: tell me what you've done in technology. you were among one of the first banks to implement tech in a big way. what's most striking in terms of tech, in terms of aeffectiveness. >> everybody feels the consumer side. if you go on the market side and you've been around the capital markets a long time, we are now completely electronic on all the equity side, getting more and more electronics on the fixed income side which is less homogenous in terms of -- we have one common stock and 400 fixed income issues or something. if you think about that. if people think about that side, it's all going straight through, 90% plus, fx is high 90s plus. a decade ago it would be 50%. a person is involved, a piece of paper is involved. on the consumer side, that's what everybody talks about. think about mid-2000s, we just started the real mobile banking takeoff. when i became ceo we had a
5 million. we have 28 million customers using mobile banking today. digital banking is 38 million. you think about our activity, more than half the payments, we talk about cryptocurrency, half the payments made by consumers, by bank of america, already made digitally today. maria: half? >> 53% actually. that technology has taken off, the ability for customers to set travel alerts, to get a new card, to load a car in a digital wallet, to pay digitally with smartphones, all of these are magical things. the real next frontier is around a thing we call zelle. we started it a year ago. a 5, 6 million people are using it. 50 million customer interactionses. you can get your balance, pay a bill, it will come up how much do you want to pay and you pay it. it's basically learning about you with artificial intelligence, voice recognition. maria: that's interesting.
>> that's kind of fun. where it takes us, we use it internally to allow teammates to work. those are huge impacts in the future. but most of the people would be real excited about what's happening with the consumer. maria: it sounds like it. can't believe so many of the payments, 53%, that's incredible. cryptocurrency, are you a fan? a lot of debate around crypto and digital currencies. >> i think you have to separate cryptocurrency into component parts. you hear a lot of people talk about this. there's anonymous currency and there's block chain and enablement of transactions and messaging with verified records. we hold 50 odd block chain patents today. we're trying to apply it in a lot of places towards having payments, especially payments which have both information and money moving across border, that's the real application we see. when you go to digital money,
digital -- 53% is digital already. that doesn't include when you stick your plastic in an atm or point of sale credit card. if you added that, the number would be like 60, 70%. maria: wow. >> 75% of our transactions, check deposit are atm or phones now. you're seeing digitization. amonday musanonymous currenciesd because they don't require verification. if you drop a 10-dollar bill -- maria: you don't know who is behind the transaction. >> it's very important to digitize movement of money to make it more fair, especially small dollar, cross-border, lower the cost of that. we have a tremendous efficient payment system today. and all this is about making more convenient for you as a customer. maria: the federal reserve is
going to cut rates in the next two weeks what should people be thinking about that. is it going to get better for people? are they going to feel an impact? >> i think for people that have debt which is based on floating rates, it will come down a little bit. mortgage prices are already down dramatically. from the time last quarter closed to this quarter closed, the 10 year rate which sets the mortgage rates went from 2.6% to 2.05% or something like that. maria: okay. >> mortgage rates have already fallen. i don't think to the average consumer there will be a huge effect. to the markets and to the companies, they'll receive a benefit instantaneously. lie bore'-- libor's already fal. that makes things cheaper. i think the fed would signal a message to the market, we're here to make sure the largest economy in the world, which is the only one growing of this size growing with this substance to it, we're here to make sure
that keeps going because that's very good not only for the united states, but good for the world. maria: so this is a positive thing. i know that rates are so low that i feel like the fed doesn't have a lot of wiggle room. they'll cut now but -- >> we'll see all that. they've got other tools and techniques and there's a lot to talk about. if you think about it, the current rate structure irrespective of the fed cuts coming or not coming is accomodative to activity and you've seen that. you've seen the issuance of corporate debt have gone up, largely because the carry cost is cheaper. if the rate they're paying is cheaper, they can incur more debt. things like that. so i think they have to worry about the excesses and stuff and they do and chair powell and many others talk about it. they're really worried about the global economy which ha is predicted to be down to 3.44 this year. we talk about wha what's going n the middle east and china. all these issues are on their mind. they're trying to say we're here

beginning of what's called a bellwether, a phrase for a mini trial to determine the like outcome of 14,000 other trials. there are 14,000 cases filed nationwide. the chief justice of the united states assigned all 14,000 of them to one federal judge in trenton, new jersey. obviously, she can't try 14,000 cases. so they pick the standard and the best claim among the 14,000, versus the strongest and the best defense and they have a mini trial. this week, the mini trial will focus on the experts because johnson & johnson has argued that the plaintiffs' experts are using junk science and if the plaintiffs can persuade judge wolfson in trenton that their experts are sound, these cases will settle and it will cost j & j a fortune. no way will 14,000 cases be tried. if j offend & j can persuade jue
wolfson that the plaintiffs' experts are using junk science, a lot of the cases will go away. some of the came cases have been tried, in st. louis missouri 22 plaintiffs used the same theories, same experts, $4.69 billion against j & j. multiply that out versus 14,000 plaintiffs shall obviously it's a number that is staggerin stagd would put j & j out of business. no way to know which way judge wolfson is going to go. >> obviously, there's a lot of money involved. it would be a huge financial penalty to j & j if this happens. is there anything that could happen in a settlement in terms of behavioral type remedy where j & j would take certain steps to make sure something like this wouldn't happen again? >> there's a lot of creativity in settlements like this,
remedial for those that have been injured as well as changing the product. quite frankly, what do the plaintiffs want? they want money. they made very serious arguments that they've been injured and the injury is permanent and that j & j caused the injury and j j& j knew of the problems. their arguments is the opposite, we're sorry they got hurt but we didn't hurt them. >> is this binding at all? it's a federal judge. many of the 1400 cases are state -- >> 14,000. that is a great question. it is and it isn't. it is isn't because if you reject what judge wolfson says and rules today, you're going to be at the bottom of the line, at the end of the line of 14,000 cases. god only knows when your matter will come before whatever judge to whom it was originally a assigned. >> even if it's a completely different state and it's not federal. >> correct. if she crafts -- she's very smart. i know her well.
if she crafts this properly, she could probably bring about the rapid resolution of the lion's share of these which is best for everybody. it's best for the plaintiffs and it's best for j & j. j & j is not in the business of defending 14,000 lawsuits. the plaintiffs want some money and want to get on with their lives. they don't want to stand in line waiting for their turn to try the case. they might be dead by the time that get to the head of the line. dagen: it's not the plaintiffs, it's the plaintiffs' attorneys. >> you're right as well. whatever she crafts by way of a settlement, she's got to put aside a big chunk for the plaintiffs' lawyers. >> i was going in the direction of damages, so we can move on. dagen: let's move on. because privacy, again, this is right in your -- >> that still exists? dagen: no, it doesn't, actually. that's a good question. u.s. companies are stepping up the monitoring of employees' data, according to a new report
by the wall street journal. your boss may have access to your e-mails and when they were sent along with text messages and phone calls on company-owned devices. >> all right. so we all have these. this is issued by fox. can fox access this and know not what i've said, but to whom i've said it and where i am and when i've said it? answer, yes. fox has software, can acquire software -- i'm not criticizing our bosses but they can acquire software like any large corporation that will allow it to monitor the comings and goings of its employees. wall street journal had a long, detailed, fascinating piece about this over the weekend. they can even tell how much sleep you've had the night before by listening to your tone of voice speaking to your colleagues first thing in the morning. now, that's not to say that they do this. because they're running businesses and have better things to do. your employer has hired you to help produce a product or deliver a service.
but can your employer do it? is the technology there? can your employer access it? yes. there's one employer that does this and can't do it legally. dagen: government. >> because the fourth amendment restrains the government. doesn't restrain private entities. it restrains the government. >> i think one of the interesting things is how different generations view privacy. younger people are totally okay having no privacy. older people are not. i wonder when it's going to become that they realize, younger people realize the implications of all of this. >> i feel like i'm against the tide. dagen was teasing me earlier. we've done this type of story many times when i defend the fourth amendment right to privacy. my argument is i can avoid google. i can't avoid the federal government, i can't avoid the state government. now this is so pervasive that it's almost as if privacy is a myth. >> that's right. >> as you point out, if the millennials think it's a myth, who will be left to defend it.
>> so many millennials walk around with two phones, one the employer gave them, and their personal one. >> that is the only way to avoid your employer's prying eye is to get your own cell phone. dagen: it's the issue with privacy with doorbell cameras, for example. listen, i've been in -- with my mother a lot recently and so we watch a lot of 48 hours and date line on the dvr and more and more you will see -- like looking for missing -- trying to find a missing person, they have -- they just collect camera, even doorbell camera information. with jussie smollett, that's how the police tracked down what happened. >> there's doorbell cameras, there's some doorbell cameras in small towns in america, usually upscale small towns that are connected directly to the police department. anybody in the police department that knows how to access it can
get a view of what's happening in front of your front door. can they get a view of what's happening on the inside? we don't know the answer to that yet. the other type of doorbell cameras, it's you and your service provider, can police get a copy of that? most courts say they need a warrant for that. some service providers give it to the cops when they ask for it. where is privacy? >> dagen: i don't think young people understand what they're putting at risk until it bites them in the you know what. >> if you read 1984, orwell's novel, is beyond what he predicted. he wrote it in the 1940s. he predicted a lot of things. the doorbell camera is terrifying. dagen: i agree. >> can we talk about something happiehappy onehappier one of t. dagen: we'll talk about j-lo's dress.

this wednesday at the bargain basement threat of $1,075, per pair. over $1,000. cheap. dagen: what you could do with that money. here's my prediction. this is the mark of the end of the expensive sneaker trend. it is the end of the expensive sneaker trend. every european designer, every high end american designer, they all make $1,000 sneakers and they're all ugly. all you ladies walking around with giant sneakers, they're hideous and they make your feet look like cookie sheets.

dagen: another fan injured by a foul ball, major league baseball players now pushing for more protective netting. jared max has the details. hey, jared. jared: again we see how reactive, not proactive, most teams are who wait until one of their customers gets drilled by a baseball before they say maybe we need to add more safety netting. after francisco madure hit a foul ball yesterday, struck a 3-year-old boy in the head, sent him to the hospital, he said he encourages every team to move the safety neting to the foul

terms of of fixing the immigration system in this country, i don't think anybody is counting on that happening but in terms of taking care of the people who are at the border who have come into u.s. illegally, is more money needed? >> yes this money will be put to good use they have reduced the number of children in custody at the border stations were they visited yesterday short term holding facilities people are only supposed to be there to go through booking process so adding money at hhs, means more shelter care the appropriate place for these kids to go, after detained for a short sometime, at border patrol, they also have more resources at those locations, to make it easier for families, that is not that is -- secretary test last week to the 453,000 families and children have been put through the system just since october, that means they have all been with the border patrol short time then released into the country. >> is anything going to happen though, to discourage people
from trying to enter the united states illegally? >> is anything going to change in washington? again, make it easier to deport or make it more -- make it speedier to deport children back to noncontiguous countries reversing a law in 2008 before president barack obama took office, more judges to hear these cases? even changing the way that you claim i asylum, in this country, is anything -- what needs to happen will anything happen frankly? >> i don't know if anything will happen but congress has the keys to reduce this crisis, to stop having 40% border patrol taking care of families and kids, and put them back on the lines to protected our border congress needs to act to close loopholes to arrange framework so that people can come in custody be turned into go
longer term detention appropriate settings for families have immigration hearing if asylum fine we well come them if note they are sent back if we don't close this loop we continue to have this problem next spring will look just as bad as it does right now. >> are you saying congress has keys who is likely to do that? what kind of things are you expecting to see them do or do you think anything is going to happen until the election or this is very much he finger pointing republicans saying democrats not allowing stronger security democrats saying republicans antihumanitarian basically terrible people. >>gl something needs to changing the way the law works right now all the children, and their families are being released. that is encouraging more people to come. if they don't close the loop on that scenario we are going to get more of this. >> itself there anyone you think can do it any congressman you are seeing going to put something forward that is going to address this issue. >> i think legacy in the judiciary committee, on the senate side lindsey graham put stuff forward i haven't seen
details of that but they got to fix the framework otherwise this will continue, and going to get worse. >> mmitch. >> one thing interesting we haven't heard the word four-letter word "wall" in sometime what is going on p wall and construction second part is debt ceiling debate upon us later in summer and into september, is the wall funding going to get rolled into that do you think as well? >> probably should. well what i know about with what's going on wall action plans in '17 and '18 new capabilities the finding for '19 tied into existing bill and those projects are under way the president tried to access other funding under emergency powers act, so those processes ongoing wall should be configured we need to do better on security regime at border but in will they fix what this problem is, the roots of this problem, need
legislation to fix it -- you are going to have this problem so probably should be put together, as relates to the discussion that is ongoing this meeting that the president forecasted with minority leader. >> i will say this at peak during president obama's administration, they were deporting more than 400,000 individuals, i know that was a different immigration issue, back then mostly adult men coming into this country but more than 400,000 and i don't think during the trump administration, that deportations have even hit 300,000. based on the most the numbers through most recent fiscal year people get upset when you talk about ice raids trying to deport individuals, who are who have had their day in court should not be in united states again, president trump isn't deporting near the number of people. that president obama did. >> this is a good point, in 2014 when president obama declared crisis on borrowed because of many families children coming, that problem is five times bigger today
than in 2014 when he declared an emergency. >> juan good to see you. thank you so much being here. >> thanks for having me. >> president trump just tweeting get ready mike block, looking at his phone on federal reserve, here we go. >> almost no inflation our country is needlessly being forced to pay a much higher interest rate than other kinds, only because of a very misguided federal reserve. in addition, quantitative tightening is continuing make i go it harder for our country to compete. as good as we have done it has -- it could have been so -- let me read -- so much better. >> interest rate costs should have been much lower and gdp in our country's wealth accumulation much higher such a waste of time and money. also, very unfair that other countries minute their currencies and pump money in he wasn't done then went on to say far more coastal for the federal reserve to cut deeper
if the economy does in infuriated turn down very inexpensive productivity productive to move now fed rates toot favt they missed it big exclamation point don't miss it again. >> your reaction, again, it is a -- a lesson about monetary policy three tweets tucson, arizona about quantitative tightening. >> what is interesting let's look at december hike it was based on scaled data it was a mistake, we can argue whether true or not maybe a lot of hindsight i can tell you a lot of large institutional investors i count as clients friends tell me, we need to undo that, that is a lot of what he is saying right here it was a mistake, the other thing -- >> he has been right, the presidenti president has been right we might not like the way he communicate he was right about federal reserve making a mistake. >> big thing called bond market saying he is right what i said is right my clients are
right, [laughter] >> five year noted telling us yes this is coming in, when trading at some -- this inversion 25 -- 20, 25 basis points lower than three month rate is telling us that something is wrong with curve it needs to be fixed see if this works out the a loft what is going on here. dagen: and the president did say, and he made the point that his administration in terms of of the economy has had big headwind of rising interest rates the reduction of the balance sheet, and the economy has still been able to grow, great guns, and so he has had that headwind that president obama did not have that is that actually goes back to a very real argument, that it was a federal reserve, that was carrying all the -- the weight and the water for the obama administration, and gave them room to -- introduce destructive policies in terms of regulation, and the president has had exact opposite been fighting this headwind delivered on silver platter by the fed. >> everything he has done has
been with fiscal poly no help from fed, monetary policy if you want to extend rally in markets in economy lighten up a little bit be more dovish. >> protective, again, the fed interest is the same as the president, insurance policy again 98 what fed did an incredible run that continues until the recession of 2001 there you go the market did collapse in 2000 i will add that coming up, big week for earnings, heavy hitters boeing tesla facebook, twitter all set to report we take you to trading floor for the latest, and scorching heat wave relief on the way following a weekend of fatal temperature what you need to know. stay with us. ♪ ooh ♪ ♪

management elizabeth young thank you for being here. >> what do you make of what happens with fed really the market reaction, investors seem craving something more than a quarter point cut at this point. >> right i think it is two different he forces i will start saying if they don't cut i won't be upset, i don't know that we can really make a fundamental case for needing a cut we continue to talk about this as insurance cut what the market wants, as far back as i can remember we don't do insurance cuts so the big risk here, though to the downside for the market is that if they don't what what market wants we're doing to see retracement in prices. >> what would just a cut based on your you know the way you view things. >> yeah, i don't want to too black and white the fed mandate full employment stable surprises we are at full employment nothing in labor market telling them they need to cut rates they are trying to i think adjust inflation expectations and inflation has
