4:02 pm
reporter: senior administration official tells me the face-to-face talks are on next mopped and wednesday with the chinese delegation. this is the 12th round of talks. robert lighthizer and treasury secretary steve mnuchin will meet their chinese counterparts, vice premier liu he. and they have asked it to be in shanghai, not beijing. this is from two conversations on the phone, one on july ninth, the other on the 18th. larry kudlow, white house economic advisor is optimistic this will be a good trip. >> i think going over there, is a good sign, what i say, ambassador lighthizer emphasized, that is we want to go back to where we were in early may when we had been moving very nicely, whatever, perhaps only 10% left to be negotiated, that sort of thing.
4:03 pm
reporter: the u.s. trade representative told me he is unwilling to go back to renegotiate the last year's worth of work. kudlow is looking for the chinese to buy agriculture. the chinese want to see technology sales to huawei start again. china want huawei to be removed from the blacklist all together. that is something the u.s. is unwilling to do so far. signs are showing further weakness in the chinese economy where our economy here in the u.s. shows fundamentally being strong. also reports that roughly 50 companies are moving out of china, or considering to move out of china with their supply chains, moving to other countries. we heard that from federal reserve chairman jerome powell and treasury secretary steve mnuchin. we're talking about big companies like apple, dell. also other companies like skechers. back to you, connell. connell: let's talk about this with columnist liz peek and kaltbaum capital management president gary kaltbaum, both fox news
4:04 pm
contributors. we had a jump in the market when the news came out this afternoon. i don't know by the fact that these guys are heading to shanghai next week makes it more likely we'll get any deal anytime soon, how do you read it? >> i think you have month and months before a deal gets done but it is good to see but, i don't think china will give away anything at this point in time. it has been, what, 15 month. all we keep hearing they're weaker than us, they have to do something and they haven't. i think all said and done before the election, we'll get a deal done. it will be more after truce. people will feel better about it. connell: gary brings up a interesting point on timing, liz, right before the election we might get a deal done. what about the president's motivation? on one hand there would be motivation to do that if the economy were slowing down and this might help. on the other hand if you're president trump, maybe you want to delay it, some would argue until after the election so the democrats can't hit you for
4:05 pm
being too soft on china? >> they will hit him for that no matter what he comes up with is fair to say, right? in fact the white house was cautioning today this will take months up to a year to get any kind of a deal done. i don't think gary is totally wrong. i think there will be a kind of a political calculation here. meanwhile though, the white house is also signaling it will focus on the usmca, the trade agreement with canada and mexico. i think for a lot of people that is more important. let's think wisconsin which turns out to be the tipping state. what do you think of? cheese. what is good for them? getting this deal done. there is a lot of politics at steak here. by the way the imf came out up graded u.s. growth to 6.8, sorry, 2.6% from 2.2%. that is a whopping increase an downgraded china. melissa: great point. >> who is hurt here? i think it is not the united states.
4:06 pm
melissa: breaking news. president trump meeting with gop senators right now at the white house. fox business's blake burman live on the scene. blake? reporter: president trump is expected to meet at this hour at the white house with republican senators to discuss potentially leveling sanctions against turkey. this stems from turkey who is of course a nato ally, buying a missile defense system, the s-400 missile defense system recently from russia. those same group of republican senators earlier up on capitol hill were joined by treasury secretary steve mnuchin who was trying to pitch them on the budget caps deal and the debt ceiling deal that he cut just yesterday with democratic leadership. as part of that deal defense spending will jump $22 billion next year while non-defense spending will rise $27 billion but many republicans are already expressing reservation about more spending. keep in mind the deficit this year is expected to hit $1 trillion. the white house is predicting trillion dollar deficits for
4:07 pm
years to come. earlier today i asked larry kudlow how that equate to fiscal conservativism. listen. >> the spending increases are very modest, 20 billion, some odd both sides. so that's okay. if your 10-year treasury is running at 2%, that tells you the bond market is really not concerned about the fiscal situation at the present time. reporter: this afternoon president trump filed a lawsuit against the democratic-controlled house ways and means committee along with new york's attorney general, new york state and a top tax official there. the president and his private lawyers contend that a law called the trust act, which was passed in new york which would allow the ways and means committee to obtain his state taxes is outside of the jurisdiction of the committee here in washington. melissa. melissa: interesting, blake, all right, thank you. doubling down on a campaign promise, democratic presidential candidate elizabeth warren
4:08 pm
issuing a bill to cancel up to $50,000 in student loan debt in households earning less than $100,000 a year, a move she says will provide debt relief for 95% of borrowers. liz, gary, are back with this one. liz, who is going to be on the hook for that money? do you think it is taxpayers or universities will have to pay it back, they priced degrees what they were worth and priced the degree, couldn't pay the money back, obviously they paid too much for the degree? >> the debt is not being expunged or eliminated. it is basically landing in the plop, in the lap of taxpayers who will pay this. people for the most part who have not gotten a college degree. who have not taken advantage of taking out this borrowing. i don't think this goes anywhere. we're talking about a trillion dollar deficits, i wonder if
4:09 pm
approaching the 2020 election people aren't going to be a little more sensitive to the cost of some of these programs. melissa: yeah. >> i do think that drives home that we don't have just an open pocketbook. melissa: gary? >> self-described capitalist elizabeth warren want wealth taxes, control wide swaths of the economy, just complete redistribution of wealth. people that took out loans and signed contracts, oh, don't worry about it, that doesn't mean anything anymore. make all mortgage loans now, let's pay them off. let's just -- melissa: gary, i'm sorry we have to jump in. right now we're hearing, breaking news, jon stewart making remarks at a news conference after the senate passed bill. >> we can all agree i'm the real hero. [laughter]. hard not to see it that way. it has been the honor of my life
4:10 pm
to work with the men and women behind me. today it is about the heart james, joe, and integg grit of ray pfeiffer and courage of lou alvarez and tenacity of john thiel. they, they lifted this 9/11 community on their shoulders and they carried them home. i will always be so proud to have been associated with it and we can never repay all that, the 9/11 community has done for our country but we can stop penalizing them and today is that day, that they can excel because unfortunately the pain and suffering of what these heroes continue to go through is
4:11 pm
going it continue. there have been too many funerals, too many hospices. these families deserve better and i'm really, i'm hopeful that today begins the process of being able to heal without the burden of having to advocate. i will follow you, whatever your next adventure shall be. [applause] melissa: we're hearing from jon stewart there, at a news conference after the senate now has passed the 9/11 bill. moving on from here for these heroes. connell: 97-2 the vote. rand paul, mike lee, senators voting against. in a moment a looming medical risk. how a daily dose of this over-the-counter drug might do
4:12 pm

4:15 pm
4:16 pm
connell: breaking news. visa reported the third quarter earnings results. gerri willis following that. tell us what we have, gerri? >> a double beat for visa coming in $1.37 a share, a nickel better than expectations. revenue beating coming in 5.8 billion, compared to 5.7 billion as you can see in the full screen. the stock is down after hours. i don't know what it all takes. they're firing on all cylinders. international volumes are up 7%. these are two metrics that investors pay attention to with visa. they returned $2.7 billion in dividends to investors. they're processing transactions, 12 billion. international transactions, two billion. we're seeing a double beat on earnings for visa. those earnings coming $1.37 a share against expectations of

4:18 pm
compassionate way. reporter: comedian jon stewart on capitol hill, with surviving 9/11 first-responders to see the bill across the finish line. they across with stewart have been lobbying congress tirelessly, courageously over the last several months, to get an extension, to pay for a lot of health issues that arose from these, from the time that was spent on ground zero. it was set to expire in 2020. first responder john thiel on capitol hill today hugged stewart and very tearfully shared an embrace, once that bill was announced it had passed. >> everybody from every state came to ground zero, pentagon, shanksville. that is what america is about, the spirit of american people. humanity of the american people. we all came together. now today the senate is going to come together and take our worst day, worst weeks, worst month, certainly our worst 18 years.
4:19 pm
reporter: this bill finances the fund through 2090. now all the president has to do is sign it. melissa: hillary, thank you. connell: a big test on the world stage, iran's warning for britain's prime minister amid escalating tensions. how should boris johnson respond. the fight for 20. democratic congresswoman rashida tlaib calling for a bigger boost for the minimum wage. why critics say that could put millions of jobs on the line. we'll talk to "wall street journal" james freeman next. at fidelity it's just $4.95 per online u.s. equity trade.

4:21 pm
are you in good hands?
4:22 pm
4:23 pm
melissa: 20 apparently the new 15. congresswoman rashida tlaib a member of the so-called "squad" on capitol hill wants to wage the federal minimum wage even further than proposed $15 per hour. take a listen to this. >> allow people living --
4:24 pm
[inaudible] whatever they call it, income. this is not enough to support our families. $20 an hour, 18 to $20 an hour at this point. melissa: james freeman, from "the wall street journal." a fox news contributor. why stop at 15, it will go to 20, elizabeth warren will be at 25. pretty soon we'll not have part-time workers, we'll just have bots and a few full-time people. >> no service industry. people in this city make a good living off the tips. maybe they are the jobs they want. i don't know why the congresswoman saying we shouldn't have those jobs. you're right, basically an attack on service jobs and entry level jobs. if you raise that, that minimum wage, we saw lastmont, congressional budget office said going to $15, their median estimate you kill 1.3 million
4:25 pm
jobs. higher end estimate you kill 3.7 million. if you're talking about $20 instead of 15, probably closer to the 3, 4 million range. melissa: yeah, without question. it is incredible when you talk to business owners, they say especially in the fast-food industry, they don't have that kind of march fin to support that. they would just be getting rid of that many jobs. i wonder if she wanted to be the one to stand there to choose who will get $20 an hour, who bill will no longer have a job. at the same time we're hurting for workers around the country. you see businesses increasing compensation in smart ways that helps them target employees they want. for example, mcdonald's, taking $150 million they got from the tax code changes to pay for college scholarships for employees and their families. walmart, s.a.t. classes, online college courses, other companies like popeye's, others going
4:26 pm
we'll pay you faster. you can have half your pay the next day. they're doing creative things. do you think that is better or worse than having the fed mandate it? >> they're competing for workers. that is great. the event where congresswoman tlaib called for $20, the usual 15, it didn't happen in front of a fast-food joint, as the press conferences normally do. usually when you listen to the whole speech, there tends to be a rant how you can't support a family on a minimum wage job at a burger chain. the burger chains never said you could. i don't know where we got this idea that entry level jobs are supposed to support entire families. it doesn't make any sense. but if you outlaw them, people can't gain experience. they can't start rising the economic ladder. melissa: we should see, take a bet when they will move to 25, now they have bonn gone from 15
4:27 pm
to 20. thank you, james. >> thank you, melissa. connell: snap, another company ied @after-hours, added more users. snap shares up about 11%. chipotle is gaining ground in after-hours trade, following a beat on same-store sales estimate thanks to the restaurant's aggressive invests in delivery and advertising, nearly 4% advance for chipotle shares. we're keeping an eye on boeing. it was down slightly in the regular session ahead of the earnings report coming out tomorrow. the company announces it will take a charge, $4.9 billion worth, tied to the grounding of the 737 max jet. the shares are down since march about 15% after the second deadly crash involving those planes, 737 max. melissa. melissa: a date for the history books. former special counsel robert mueller's appearance before congress tomorrow will

4:32 pm
connell: nearly mueller time. after two years of silence with that one brief public statement, special couples sell robert mueller will indeed testify before lawmakers tomorrow. the judge is here, judge andrew napolitano, fox news senior judicial analyst, the host of liberty file on "fox nation" for a preview. you put together some questions you think lawmakers might want to consider asking. i'm sure they will have their own list. one of them struck me from the democratic point of view, would you have indicted the president if he were not president? i wonder whether or not mr. mueller will answer that question? >> i can't predict which way it will go, if he says yes, that is fodder for the democrats mill. if he says i'm not going to answer that because we didn't address it in the report. it is sort of neutral. i don't think he can say no, because he did reveal the existence of some evidence of obstruction of justice. so how much of a marine is bob mueller? is he going to comply with the
4:33 pm
rules that have been imposed upon him, even though he is not in the justice department and the rules are not enforceable and there will be little to no consequence of violating the rules. connell: the rules we're talking about, the department of justice written a letter to mr. mueller which suggests anything outside the report would be covered by presidential privilege, that correct? >> that is correct that is what the doj said. he can answer questions like, 13 talked about it, nine thought we couldn't indict and 3 said yes and one couldn't make up his mind. i don't know where that goes in terms of the narrative. the democrats are looking for a smoking gun, gotcha, ah-ha they can run over and over again. the republicans are looking for a dud, there is nothing new here. connell: in terms of another angle for the republicans that you brought up, the idea they may look into the origin of the investigation. how might they word those
4:34 pm
questions. what might they accomplish that is off the path of, you know, whether or not the president should be indicted? >> if bob mueller answers to the democrats if he would have indicted the president if he was a private citizen. then they have to undermine mr. mueller. mr. mueller you found out in this investigation, that it was started by frau and deception to the vice is a court? did you do anything to correct that? you inherited a investigation that was inherently flawed. by the way, mr. mueller, did you know before the midterm elections in 2018 that the president was not going to be charged with any conspiracy to subvert the election laws? did you know on day one that you started the whole investigation you couldn't investigate the president, if you did, why did you go through the investigation? connell: both sides could be interesting whether he answers. if he uses the doj guidelines per questions like that, he is caught on the other side as well. if he starts to answer some of these questions, he has to answer both sides, right?
4:35 pm
>> yes. let me say this. i think he is intellectually honest and probably the smartest lawyer in the room. even though we will have his own lawyer with him, which is not uncommon, that will be apparent. by the way, he has testified before congressional committees in his life, he is the king, 89 times. >> right. >> i don't think anybody has been there. connell: is that the record? >> yes. this is not novel to him. this environment. connell: been a while but lots of practice. >> right. connell: anything as a final point that comes out of tomorrow changes the big picture? >> it would have to be something we don't know about already, to change the big picture. otherwise people have dug their heels in. you love the president, you think this is a fraud. you hate the president. you think he is a crook. connell: we'll watch a good part of the day. two committees. starts 8:00 in the morning. melissa. melissa: stepping up the investigation. puerto rico's justice department issuing search warrants for its embattled governor and his top aides as the largest protest in

the region's history. fox news's jeff paul is in san juan with the latest. jeff what is scene like there? reporter: you can hear the protests behind me. i want to get to up with other thing first, after the first one-on-one interview the governor did with fox news's shepard smith, we got a chance to pull him aside, ask him if there is anything over the edge at that would force him to resign? he was very vague. the people elected him as governor, he wants to finish out his return. we reminded him, many people that voted for him are out in the thousands protesting his administration. so we pressed one more time, said is there anything that would make you want to step aside? here is what he had to say. is there any point, you will take a hard look in the mirror, maybe it is time to resign? >> i'm always, you know, i'm committed to the rule of law and i'm committed to the continuing government. that is what is driving me.
4:37 pm
reporter: would you ever considered it? >> i know, i made the consideration aware. i will do whatever is in the best interests of the people of puerto rico. i made the consideration where i will not seek office again. reporter: that response is not good enough for thousands and thousands of people who are calling for the governor to resign. they continue to protest. in fact, take a look, this is from last night t was an all-day process. no major clashes with police and protesters. right around 11:00 things got out of hand. tear gas was fired from police. police officers saying objects were thrown at them like rocking rocks, eggs, things go so bad that a tear gas canister was fired into one of the guys that lives here in old san juan. the car caught on fire. bryan llenas talked to the man about what happened. >> it is what it is.
4:38 pm
the thing going on right now, it will have side effects. unfortunately, this is one of the side-effects. reporter: there is another protest planned for friday. we're told there will be a human chain formed by many protesters to block highway access. there will be a march on saturday. maybe something else on sunday. these protesters showing no signs of slowing down. they want one thing. they want the governor to resign, melissa. melissa: the interview you asked him was really incredible. he said well, i'm not going to run for re-election. unbelievable. jeff paul, thank you. connell: all right. a growing outrage, stunning video surfacing online how police officers are being treated on the streets of new york. we will bring all the details on this story after the break. ushering in a new era, boris johnson is set to take over as britain's next prime minister. he will be in office as of tomorrow. what does it all mean, in terms of relations with the u.s. and also right away for boris
