4:00 pm
down. the bull bash continues. records across the board for major averages. [closing bell rings] i'm so glad you're here to witness another three in a row. dow, s&p, nasdaq all in never-before-seen territory. that will do it for "the claman countdown." connell: another day of records on wall street. all three major averages at record highs. fourth day in a row we've seen it. we have china cutting tariffs on imports into the u.s. some argue easing of political uncertainty now that we're past impeach and everything. i don't know. the way we got past it, president trump taking his version of a victory lap at white house following the senate acquittal in his impeachment trial. in the midst of all that, the dow closes up by 88 points. the sixth record close we've had this year. good to be with you. only thursday by the way. i'm connell mcshane. melissa: feels like friday. i'm melissa francis.
4:01 pm
the s&p 500 closing at record highs for the second day in a row. the 10th record of the year. we have fox business team coverage. jackie deangelis on floor of the new york stock exchange. blake burman at white house, susan li awaiting uber's quarterly results. let's start out with jackie. reporter: good afternoon, to you, melissa. a great day across the board. dow closing up 88 points. looks like it will settle out. let me go through these. the dow on pace for the 114th record close under president trump. just gives you a sense after the state of the union, after like connell said, impeachment stuff has been settled, investors feel more confident. that china news helping. that china is implementing phase one deal. that is what markets wanted to see. steve mnuchin was on "mornings with maria" earlier and he said would china roll back more tariffs.
4:02 pm
he said we're holding it in our back pocket, as we do the phase two negotiations. something to watch for for sure. things propelling the dow higher. boeing was a big problem. a software problem identified here. the faa thinks it could be resolved rather quickly. boeing shares were up 3.6%. microsoft doing well, up better than 2% on the session. apple, 1.1% on session. walgreen boots, walt disney seeing nice gains, guys. melissa: jackie, thank you. connell: to talk about the gains in the market, gary b. smith, kadena group president and fox news contributor. perfect person to talk to. we joke about the market. you've been a doubting thomas. here we go, the rally that never ends. what do you make of it? >> first of all you brought up the doubting thomas thing. i don't think that is a fair way to start off but you're absolutely right! you gigging me, connell, fine.
4:03 pm
but i have been. i'll tell you why, even like a few weeks ago i said, probably there has to be a black swan out there. i thought, ah, the coronavirus. apparently the coronavirus is solved. nothing happened. impeachment, nothing. >> yeah. >> i will say one thing, i'm still skeptical and cautious but you can't argue with new highs. we had call it the coronavirus, you know, selloff if you will. we made like a v in the market. we're on to new highs. i'm skeptical, but at this point you have to be long. you can't fight the tape. connell: you can't fight the tape. i would say this about the economy. forget about the coronavirus or all the political stuff, we had reads, whether employment or it could be manufacturing, services all this week. relative to expectation. it wasn't long ago we were talking about slowdown, recession. these numbers are pretty strong. looks like the economy before
4:04 pm
the virus if anything was picking up. >> you know what? to your point. trump is obviously claiming, rightly so, a lot of reason for the economy doing well. you know, another bit of good news. forget about getting over impeachment. if it looks like bernie sanders is going to win the nomination for the democrats, that is actually good news for trump. connell: better for trump. >> he might have had a trump with biden. sanders he should beat easily. melissa: i don't know. nobody thought trump would win last time. be careful with that one. tesla shares rye bounding a bit after the company's second worst trading day in history this was all on back or mostly of a letter from a guy named gene munster who used to be on tv all the time as an analyst. he has a venture fund. one of the things he pointed out they removed the standard language from the investor letter said they would increase sales every quarter. now look at the stock comes
4:05 pm
plying back today, what do you make of this? >> well, i tell you what, look, the stock was up 500% since last june? that is just crazy. they have a market cap four times ford's market cap yet ford's profits are greater than tesla's revenues! i'm probably not only i am not only one. this is crazy, scary stuff. connell: gary, we have a earnings report. sorry to interrupt you, gary. "fox business alert" on uber. we said susan was waiting for uber results. we have them, susan? susan: better than anticipated. losing 64 cents a share. estimates were calling for a loss of 68 cents. that's a beat. revenue topping expectations as well as estimates, making $4.7 billion in the quarter. that is better than what analysts were looking for, looking for $4.06 billion. when it comes to rides, people
4:06 pm
look at growth bookings for a company like uber and on an adjusted basis better than expected as well. higher than the 226 million than analysts expected. here is what ceo daraa. he said we are steadily making commitments to our shareholders on the path to profitability. the era of growth at all costs is over. in the quarter they mentioned close of sale of uber eats business. they are buying kareem another ride-hailing company in the middle east. they usually give us guidance on profitability this is what the markets look for on the earnings call. pretty much anticipated later on today. guys? connell: down 2% now. maybe didn't beat by enough. i'm sure people waiting for guidance, right? susan: definitely, i'm sure. connell: susan li in the
4:07 pm
newsroom. uber bun more than 1%. melissa. melissa: president trump declaring victory after acquittal in the impeachment. calling the process evil. blake burman i hope you weren't standing in that event earlier today. reporter: hour and a minute at some points even on a ladder t was a front row seat to history. president took a victory lap what he called hour-long speech. he went around the room to take republican allies in congress. it was apologized to his family for what they were put through. as well the president directed the democrats especially nancy pelosi and adam schiff describing them quote, as vicious as hell. >> we went through hell, unfarley. did nothing wrong. did nothing wrong. i have done thing wrongs in my life. i will admit. not purposely. but i've done things wrong.
4:08 pm
but this is what the end result is. reporter: now the president also lamented that impeachment meant big-ticket items like infrastructure and lowering prescription drug prices haven't received attention they deserved. he refused to greet the house speaker when they both attended the national prayer breakfast. he laughed at idea that nancy pelosi prays for him. pelosi later took exemption. >> the president said, people use faith as an excuse to do, i don't know if he said bad things but, whatever he said, just so completely inappropriate especially at a prayer breakfast. he is talking about things that he knows little about, faith and prayer. reporter: got to wonder, melissa and connell, where things go from here. because the president said on several occasions in his event here at the white house he believes even though impeachment is over, that democrats are
4:09 pm
going to continue with investigations. back to you. >> oh, blake, all right. here now to discuss is bill mcgurn of "the wall street journal." he is also a fox news contributor. bill, i had this glimmer at the beginning of the prayer breakfast. i thought, maybe there is a chance, like he walks down the dais and shakes her hand or something? they can bury the hatchet. >> turns the other cheek. melissa: it was a golden opportunity to at least look like you know, i'm, it is over, let's move on, let's do something. no. it went all scorched earth. she even accused him of being on drugs at the press conference. he turned around and he look sedated. but again he did at last year's event too. where do we go from here on this one? >> the president is right. the democrats are not going to give up. first it was james comey and fbi and fisa warrants on a man affiliated with the trump campaign. then it was bob mueller. then it was impeachment. i don't think, they can give up even though this is over. i think they will try to get
4:10 pm
john bolton to get out there and drug up other things. i don't think it will work. the real problem democrats have is not donald trump. is that they have bored the american voter death. it is not resonating with independents especially, in battleground states. melissa: does president -- so some things have been achieved. not as much as he would like. >> right. melissa: things have been achieved in spite of that. he looks like sort of hercules, godzilla, as they continue to throw stuff at him. >> right. melissa: does he need them? does he need democrats to get some more stuff done? or can he do enough on his own without cooperation? >> look, generally in election years you don't get a lot of help from congress if it is run by the opposite party so i don't expect a lot of help. it was interesting, low approval ratings democrats are getting, they thought if they impeached him the support would come. it didn't come. the result was president trump got to sign a trade deal that he
4:11 pm
has been put off for about a year because the democrats were worried all they have is impeachment and antagonism towards the president, no achievements. that is really odd. a president impeached is usually in a weak place. i thought in general the state of the union plays to a president's advantage, any president. you're standing in the most prestigious part of american democracy, usually with representatives from all three branches of the federal government there. you're speaking not only to congress, to the american people. you know it is a former speechwriter the goal you have to get your opponents to applaud for your agenda to things, word it in a way that makes it difficult for them to applaud and if you can't get them to applaud have them look sour over things they shouldn't look sour over. melissa: that was achieved. >> a little girl getting a scholarship. that was achieved. i never understood why parties
4:12 pm
don't get their acts together on state of the union. state of the union the etiquette, you don't want to go you don't like the president, it is like being at the high school graduation of the daughter of one of your friend. you sit there and politely clap and smile. no one will remember that but if you scowl, it becomes an incident. melissa: real quick. do you think, what are the odds after the next election, it is still president trump dealing with nancy pelosi as speaker of the house? >> it could be. i think in president trump time, you know, these, what is it eight months left -- melissa: like -- >> eternity could happen. it is just quite interesting. i think the democrats are having trouble choosing a candidate. i'm not sure that they have confidence in their candidates which is why some of them opted for impeachment. i don't think they have confidence in the american people. so it could, that is one thing no one's considered. look, i don't think anything is a given. if donald trump wins
4:13 pm
re-election, it will be a hard-fought, state by state victory. seems to me, almost as impeachment thought it would come to be a conclusion, it would be bashing trump. what about they wake up in november and republicans kept the senate, kept the white house an gained the house? i mean that is, that a possibility. it may seem remote now but it is a possibility. melissa: all right. thank you. bill mcgurn. >> thank you. connell: we'll get into the state of play in the 2020 race as we continue. bernie sanders is declaring victory in iowa. melissa: why not. i thought you won? connell: i think i did in many ways. the other thing the chair of the dnc comes out said they should recanvas the whole thing in iowa. melissa: gosh. connell: we'll figure out what the chaos means for the democratic party. we're on the ground live in new hampshire with the latest. melissa: taking aim at a state law. the department of homeland security blocking new york state residents from some trusted traveler programs. it could spread beyond the
4:14 pm
empire state, global entry, all that kind of stuff. is this a good move? connell: talk about that. breaking boundaries, astronaut christina cook returning to earth after record-setting mission. what it could mean for women in space? one aspiring astronaut joins us later in the hour. and it's rolling out in cities across the country so people can experience speeds that ultra wideband can deliver. 1.7 gigs here in houston. 1.8 gigs here in frigid omaha. almost 2 gigs here in los angeles. that's outrageous! it's like an eight-lane highway compared to a two-lane dirt road. ♪ there's a company that's talked than me: jd power.people 448,134 to be exact. they answered 410 questions in 8 categories about vehicle quality.
4:15 pm
and when they were done, chevy earned more j.d. power quality awards across cars, trucks and suvs than any other brand over the last four years. so on behalf of chevrolet, i want to say "thank you, real people." you're welcome. we're gonna need a bigger room. be stronger... with nicorette coated ice mint. layered with flavor. it's the first and only coated nicotine lozenge. for an amazing taste... ...that outlasts your craving. nicorette ice mint.

4:18 pm
connell: still seeking clarity i guess you could say. bernie sanders declaring victory in iowa but the chairman of the democratic committee came utterlier called for complete revan cast of the results of the caucuses there. let's go to hillary vaughn, like many of those covering politics she moved on to new hampshire but still talking about iowa. hillary? reporter: hi, connell. the dcn wants a recount but bernie sanders is counting on voters here in new hampshire to see him the winner in iowa. he is not the first one to declare victory today, sanders said. they should see him as the winner, not mayor pete buttigieg who was the first to declare victory. >> that screwup has been ex-extremely unfair to the people of iowa. it has been unfair to all the candidates and all of their supporters. reporter: we're here in dairy,
4:19 pm
new hampshire, at and warren event that doesn't start for two hours. people behind me are lined up in 34-degree weather aft big part of what makes new hampshire so important, the amount of undeclared voters who are here. 42% of voters in new hampshire have not decided who they will vote for. not aligned in with a particular party. in new hampshire, that gives them a lot of power. they can pick on the spot in primary day which spot they want to participate in, picking up a republican or democratic ballot. they can walk out of the polling place undecided. that silent majority of moderates could have a big impact on the primary on monday. we talked to undeclared voters in manchester, new hampshire. they tell us they take that responsibility of being undecided very seriously. >> for me, like financially i'm more republican but socially i'm more democrat. i like to go back and forth. i try not to choose republican or democrat.
4:20 pm
i try to go with somebody not part of the establishment i guess, you know? >> the reason i'm a independent is, i believe from different things from both parties. i like to look at individuals, look at who they are, and look how they represent themselves, make a decision based on that. reporter: connell, very common for voters not to make up their mind until election day. one voter knows me knows he will participate in the democratic primary. he doesn't know who he will vote for yet. connell: that is part of it. some normally vote for republicans and participate. hillary vaughn in new hampshire. >> man behind the largest ponzi scheme in history is now asking for mercy. why bernie madoff is asking for early release in prison. why nike is calling it a game-changer but the rest of the world isn't so convinced, the running world at least. ♪.

melissa: pleading for compassion. bernie madoff is asking the federal government to release
4:25 pm
him from prison due to terminal kidney failure. he is serving 150 years in prison for orchestrating the largest ponzi scheme in history. here is attorney bobby ahnky. thanks for joining us. what are the odds he gets this? >> i know as a prosecutor, financial crimes, victims were more agitated than cases of murder and rate. i get that. this compassionate relief law, if you have end stage illness with regard to a organ you are eligible for the come passionate release and that is exactly what he has. the bureau of prisons is not arguing that at all. he is in palliative care right now. what they are saying, however, the judge should balance that with the severity of the crime that was committed and he shouldn't be released for that reason. melissa, i will tell you though, there was a decision out of new york recently in the
4:26 pm
bernie ebbers case. melissa: bernie ebbers. >> he received 25 year sentence for 2 billion-dollar fraud there and a judge in new york actually related him in similar circumstances indicating that essentially he served a life sentence. he spent many years in jail. this was not a slap on the wrist and more importantly that judge ruled that this is does not say there is not deterrents and not punishment. under the compassionate care aspects of the law he should be released. he does have, bernie madoff an obligation or opportunity here. melissa: so i'm always wondering about everybody's incentives in this sort of thing and this is a north carolina facility. is it costing them a fortune to take care of his care, if they release him, does somebody else pay for that? is there a reason the prison would want to get rid of him? >> that is great question. the fact of the matter it costs enormous amount of care. there is diminution of fed
4:27 pm
medical care in federal facilities. he needs extensive care. keep in mind he is under custody and control of the bureau of prisons with significant restrictions but it would be cost savings to the taxpayers. >> as you look at this, it was $64 billion that he ripped off. i mean always unclear on all the math and you don't know how much was there with the forensic accountants and all that. as of january, looks like this 1.4 billion has been recovered. i mean there is still a lot of people who are not recovered from this, who would be really upset if he is out at all? >> the judge will weigh the fact this was ongoing pyramid scheme that deprived, ruined financially so many people. there doesn't seem to be a tremendous lack of renorse and you can be assured the lawyers for the bureau of prisons will say, that is exactly the reason why he should not be released. it will be a interesting call for the judge to make.
4:28 pm
melissa: bob, thank you. >> my pleasure. connell: we may be bracing for some travel chaos. the department of homeland security cracking down on sanctuary law leaving some new york residents on edge the we'll talk about which states might be next. melissa: making her mark on history. nasa astronaut christina cook completing the longest ever single spaceflight by a woman. she sin spiring other women to follow her lead. we'll talk to one of those aspiring astronauts this hour. connell: for something ridiculous. going too far? peta is under fire after a spokesperson claims that calling a animal a pet is derogatory. melissa: i don't get that. connell: it is insulting to the cat, whatever. peta suggests you use more inclusive term like companion. melissa: what about somebody's pet project? that has positive connotation? connell: derogatory. melissa: i can't keep up.

melissa: dramatic move could impact your night. homeland security immediately suspending new yorkers applying or renewing your membership in global entry and other trusted traveler programs in response to the state's so-called sanctuary policy. here to discuss, tom homan, former immigration customs and enforcement director.
4:33 pm
i'm deeply suspicious in all of these stories and wonder what is going on here. we heard conflicting reports usapre, that is more common end than the domestic international one. they're saying global entry, i'm sorry tsapre is not part of this brand. what do you make of it? what is inspiring it? what is going on? >> i salute the acting secretary of dhs chad wolf doing this. he doesn't have a choice. he has to do this. the trusted traveler program, such as the three programs we talked about, you have got to vet these people. if you will give people entry into the country, expedited processing dhs has to vet them, make sure they know who they are, any criminal histories, is there any derogatory information out there. law enforcement uses dmv databases for decades. new york state, when you give the person a driver's license,
4:34 pm
this doesn't give them just permission to drive. this lets them open bank accounts, cash checks, get on airlines. this is number one form of identification. melissa: tom, let me ask you, all that is absolutely true, global entry, in order to get global entry, you have to go to the airport, here in new york, go to the customs house. you make an appointment. it takes forever. you have to bring all kinds of documenttation. i don't know how, if they're trying to make sure that you know, you don't have people who already have fake i.d.s or who aren't who they say they are, or aren't citizens, you are not getting global entry, it is not easy? >> what you don't understand, i have global entry now. say i get arrested tomorrow for drug snuggling or arrested tomorrow for some serious crime, national security interesting crime. global entry will not track that. when you run people through databases, global entry is immediate process. the dmv will be first check to
4:35 pm
coincide ncic, who the person is. recent arrest. dmv is constantly updated this is system imperative for law enforcement to have access to. melissa: so the answer, so you're saying law enforcement wasn't given access to the global entry system, that is why they're being banned? >> no. i'm saying is, the global entry system, dhs needs access to dmv databases in coordination with the global entry system to update records on who these people are. if you get global entry today, doesn't mean you're the same person in six months, that you're clear of criminal violations six months from now. it is constant check who is coming into the country. situations change for everybody every day and dmv records help us keep track who has been arrested recently, who has been convicted recently of crimes. melissa: i am glad you enlightened us to, i didn't understand was the problem with global entry specifically, that they're not updating records. sounds like shouldn't be a new york thing.
4:36 pm
that entire process should go away? >> new york is one of the few places that doesn't give, has decided not to give dhs access to the dmv databases. >> okay. >> most states give us access. most states give us access for decades this is recent change in new york this is political change. this is done for political reasons because of this president. in the law you can give access to the dmv database, to secret service, fbi but not immigration authorities. they run the trusted traveler programs. i.c.e.,cppb, arrest a lot of criminals. 90% of people arrested are a criminal. if federal government did what they did, okay, new york, you don't have access to ncic anymore. federal government owns that. you won't know who has wants or warrants or criminal histories. federal government will not do that. you know why? we care about safety of law enforcement officers in this country, not like the state of new york. melissa: sounds like i need to leave new york.
4:37 pm
from the conclusion of interview. look, i hear you, i understand exactly what you're saying. connell: we'll talk about china right now as a matter of fact. and they are sounding the alarm, they being some top u.s. government officials warning about the threat of chinese espionage, technology theft, things we heard before, saying they are still threats to the u.s. economy even with the phase one deal having been signed. the fbi director chris wray talking about it earlier today. let's listen. >> they're also targeting cutting-edge research at our universities. just last week for example, we announced charges against the chairman of harvard's chemistry department for false statements related to a chinese plan and a pla officer at boston university for concealing her military ties. they have shown they're willing to steal their way up the economic ladder at our expense. connell: terry terchi, former assistant director of counterterrorism at the fbi. terry, i thought this was,
4:38 pm
especially with trade, we've made progress, we've gotten phase one done, chris wray and the fbi certainly hasn't changed its tune. this is certainly a tough speech he came before the trade deal came out. what do you make of this with regard to china? >> director wray is right on target. people don't realize we read the headlines. we see the great talk about trade agreements. what these things do, big political developments, they facilitate operations of chinese intelligence services in america. and, when you talk about the chinese, you're talking about literally decades of china probably being one of the most proficient collectors and, just most competent people when it comes to targeting americans. they target the economy and we probably lose two million jobs every year, probably $400 billion in intellectual property in sales goes out the windows because of chinese stealing technology and intellectual property from us. when you talk about politics, they actually have major efforts, have for decades,
4:39 pm
mounted against america's political institutions, against both parties, to try to infiltrate and recruit. then use political ideology as a weapon as well. that is one of the chief ways that communist countries try to interfere with america's interests around the world. finally -- connell: go ahead and finish. >> finally when you look at intelligence services they have been very, very efficient actually recruiting people inside of the fbi, the defense intelligence service and the cia. connell: i was going to go say, brings up a larger question especially with regard to technology, if we go through all of this, almost what is the point of trying to negotiate a deal where we all get along, everybody makes a little bit of money if there is literally no reason as you outline maybe for us to trust what is coming out of china? does it, from a national security standpoint, should we be cutting them off completely? >> well, i think we all would rather have some sort of talking going on rather than being a constant state of war and
4:40 pm
aggravation. so what people have to understand is you can have all the political agreements that you want but countries like china, the soviet union, iran, all of them are still here and they're going to be stealing as much as they can get their hand on and they are very, very competent doing it. all americans are targets. today the chinese are able to do this much easier than they were years ago. they can literally sit in shanghai at a desk. they can conduct recruitment of an influential american over a computer. they will give them a stipend for research. they will invite them to shanghai. they will have all the meetings, service them for years without having any risk at all. we have a lot of challenges. this is just another one of those. connell: keep your eyes open. no know what the fbi and other intelligence officials are looking at when we talk about trade and economics. terry, thanks for coming on. we appreciate it. melissa: run like an olympian. you will soon be able to get

4:46 pm
mini airplanes on the bottom of those shoes, i could not run a marathon under two hours. the controversy is coming from, something in the soul, there it is a little bit thicker. there is a spring there. it is helping runners run faster for longer distances. but look, the game is evolving. purists are saying this is harming integrity of the game. nike says this is game changing progress. connell: right. >> think about john mcenroe, he used a smaller tennis racket than they used today. are you saying he is not a great tennis player? no, you're not. we're not talking about peds here. if we're talking about performance-enhancing drugs, that is completely different conversation. not everyone has access or do something to alter their body chemistry. when you're talking about just a sneaker this is something everybody has access to. you can go buy it. i might run a mayor than or even finish a marathon. connell: that is interesting. another company, they could make something similar or make their version of it.
4:47 pm
i'm sure nike has patents on all this. what is to stop under armour or adidas, we need to make better shoes? it would be like an updated tennis racket if that were the case. >> i was down interviewing somebody in for "fox nation" interviewing wilson, that they don't change it so much that they change the game of football differently. they have parameters on the shoes can't go past 40 millimeters on the souls. they're doing it right. they're changing but doing it right. connell: tom brady standing next to you, take a little air out of that. >> exactly. a lot of air. connell: it will be fine. commercially does it matter? these will probably be because of all the buzz popular shoes just for regular people? >> they're not best looking shoes, i'm going to be honest. connell: that's true. you're more the fashionista is not cool? >> if they help me run a marathon they can be floaters on bottom of my feet. that would be fine.
