6:03 am
people. claiming the u.s. got trigger-happy after missing the larger china spy balloon a week earlier and allowed it to travel throughout the country for a week sending images of u.s. nuclear installations back to beijing. the president claims the three smaller objects were not related to chinese balloon program but they were shot down anyway. more details coming up all morning long. "mornings with maria" is like right now. ♪. maria: president biden speaks out about the object shot down by the military. watch this. >> we don't know exactly what the three objects were but nothing right now suggest they were related to china spy balloon program or they were
6:04 am
surveillance vehicles from any other country. the three objects were balloons tied to private companies, recreation or research institutions. i expect to speak with president xi jinping and i hope will get to the bottom of this but i make no apologies for taking down the balloon. >> boy does america look weak and the report suggest one of the objects could've been a 12-dollar balloon belonging to an illinois happy club. during the briefing biden skip to question which was shouted at him exclusively told nbc i think the last thing that xi jinping wants is to rip the relationship with the united states and with me. joining me for all the hot topics all morning long security ahead of u.s. rates and "fox & friends" cohost great to see you guys, thank you for being here. todd your reaction.
6:05 am
>> she sounds so scared. if you listen on the radio and can see the expression on my face as one of sarcasm. as for everything the joe biden said in the press conference. did we learn anything we didn't know basically a week ago why couldn't he come out and delay the concerns of the american people a week ago. we knew everything that he said with the exception of the fact that this balloon could've cost $12 and the weapon to shoot it down was worth $400,000. the number one take away that i have. if this white house if this rattled by what amounts to a potentially a 12-dollar balloon at my country michael's arts in crafts what we going to do when something real happens when china sent something over. if and when that happens if russia decides to get silly and do something provocative, this is petrifying.
6:06 am
maria: it is petrifying because we already had something quite significant. we had a balloon the size of 20s in it. flying over america for a week and able to snap images of our nuclear installation. it is terrifying but we've had it and what did they do they allotted to fight throughout the country. if the press conference did not underlie the fact that this country in the whole infrastructure that we have is unprepared for communist china. i don't know what else attack. >> china is not afraid to todd's point and i agree. i think that much is very, very clear from the president's perspective i think it's good he's violently speaking but unfortunately i don't think he's given the americans any comfort
6:07 am
in terms of what's going on not just with the balloon but what's going on in general in terms of the academy. maria all site two instances from the balloon recently. you know that we follow financing market very closely. one is all the jobs that the president claims to have out of the pandemic we created 12 million jobs we know that's not factually true when you look at what we lost in what we gained. on the inflation side is telling the america public when he took office inflation was raging and we know that was not true. to me this is one more example. right now with the president i think the country wants to hear the truth. the country wants to know that they are being protected is not just about the balloon is about multiple things right now with your impacting people's lives. maria: for sure, the wall street journal writes about this this morning in an op-ed biden does a spy balloon flyby.
6:08 am
they write mr. biden offered little substance for fewer than ten minutes and shuffled off without taking any questions. meanwhile more news showing the behavior of communist china right now. i have learned we are looking at an invasion not just of our sovereignty in the air but also our sovereignty on the ground. a major source at the border tells me that border agents are allowing up to 30 chinese nationals into the country every day that are connected to the chinese government. we are hearing the getting a notice to appear what does that mean they're getting a notice to appear in the b years later which often times they don't even show up. communist china is planning something. i don't know what they want to do by getting all of the chinese nationals in the country. they already abused the visa
6:09 am
process, why do it from the ground right now for the wide-open border? >> they saw what joe biden did at the border getting in january of 2021 and they are making it ridiculously easy for us because a notice to appear are basically worth the amount of money that this paper i held my hand it's a piece of you know what nobodies can listen. the chinese saw this and thought we can infiltrate sender people there obviously these people are well-financed. they know they going to come to the country and do what the ccp wants them to do the get into in the shadows like the individuals that do not have to appear for the notices to appear. it is appalling. maria: it is appalling but it's interesting that border agents are allowing all of the chinese citizens in the pain $35000 ahead to the drug cartels. we could get more on this coming up. i'll tell you more of what my border sources are telling me. we are just getting started more
6:10 am
on the reporting of the southern border what agents are doing with the increase of chinese nationals crossing into the country every day. then i'll speak with one mother forced to evacuate her home following the devastating train to ram it in east palestine o ohio. have a small town is left with more questions than answers in why other states are worried that the chemicals are going to get there. former house speaker newt gingrich is here who join the panel at 8:00 a.m. eastern you want to "mornings with maria" live on fox business. ♪ the markets have gone up and down, but you're right on track to reach your goals. my ameriprise advisor helps me feel confident about my financial future. he knows me and my goals. it's not the first uncertain environment he's helped me navigate. probably won't be the last. but with his advice, i know i'm on track. the plan we created can withstand uncertainty.

lomita feed is 101 years old this year and counting. i'm bill lockwood, current caretaker and owner. when covid hit, we had some challenges like a lot of businesses did. i heard about the payroll tax refund, it allowed us to keep the amount of people that we needed and the people that have been here taking care of us. see if your business may qualify. go to maria: welcome back features indicating a decline stocks are lower after then hotter than expected ppi report yesterday and commentary from two fed officials who suggested that we
6:15 am
will or should see a 50 basis point hike at the next meeting rather than 25 basis point that's when markets took off lower. the morning was said after the producer price index showed a gain of seven tenths% month over month in the year of 6% on the producer price index yesterday, joining me now wealth management chief investment officer john lynch. great to see you thank you for being here. what did you make of that inflation report and what does that tell you about the fed and its move in the coming months? >> taking maria the inflation report is a stark reminder to investors that the inflation battle is not over it is the market that's been rallying from the low october and the idea that the fed is done or will be done soon i think not only the consumer debt of earlier this week but the wholesale data yesterday reinforces that.
6:16 am
the easy 300 basis point move has occurred going from 9% to 6%. i would just suggest the next three could be far more difficult than yesterday perhaps a real longer fight. i'm aware of yesterday's 50 basis points. i'm not sure the fed will want to alter the magnitude but i think it will extended duration. it's conceivable that we see 75 basis points through midsummer and get the short end of the curve at five and a quarter of five and half percent. maria: it was a president of two federal reserve, loretta and that under president james mueller who spoke yesterday indicating rate hikes show inflation and 50 basis points as opposed to 25 would be appropriate. we also haven't talked much about the fact that the fed is unwinding its balance sheet
6:17 am
taking $95 million a month out. when you remove a trillion dollars of liquidity does that give you pause of market disruption to come? >> absolutely i think it's a market overly reliant on 0% interest rates and a hint that inflation is easing. i think the market needs to adjust to the fact that not only is the fed raising rates but to your point they're buying to your bonds and letting bonds roll off their balance sheet as they mature and they also don't have the chinese and japanese buying much anymore. another fact that very few people talk about m2 is declining on a year on year basis. 18 months 25 or 30% on a year-over-year basis. of what we need to be mindful of m2 is defined by the money supply who was up from the third of pre-pandemic levels. that's allowing for some of these for the bear rallies to
6:18 am
recur and there's a lot of excess liquidity despite of what the fed is trying to accomplish. >> integrate point. we are with greg this morning, jumping. >> taking maria and john nice to be with you. we follow the fed very closely, we follow interest-rate and we focus more on fixed income. i think a lot of folks on the fixed income side we seen the backup and rates ten year yields got into 332 year yields were up 4% which to me was a little crazy. now we packed up but risk assets have not reacted all that much equity in particular, what do you think is behind that right now? >> good morning greg i agree we are at 380 or so on the tenure that is where we were at the end of september equity is up 50% since that time nic and inverted
6:19 am
curve of 80 basis points now. at some point higher financing costs are going to limit economic activity. one of the things i take comfort in in spite of the degree of inversion as a credit spreads have hung in there cut and should relatively well when you look at investment or high-yield. they are still well within their band over the past 25 years that is a signal that default rates may not be in prior recessions but i think the spread sectors are suggesting a mild recession in the magnitude of the economic pullback could be mitigated giving m2 conversation that we just had. maria: great to get your insight on all of that. thank you so much. >> thank you maria. john lynch joining us. take a look at doordash soaring in premarket, the delivery app reporting earnings on earnings and revenue the author raises

with their phones. oh i can't hear you... you're froze-- ladies, please! you put it on airplane mode when you pass our house. i was trying to work. we're workin' it too. yeah! work it girl! woo! i want to hear you say it out loud. well, i could switch us to xfinity. those smiles. that's why i do what i do. that and the paycheck. when people come, they say they've tried lots of diets, nothing's worked or they've lost the same 10, 20, 50 pounds over and over again. they need a real solution. i've always fought with 5-10 pounds all the time. eating all these different things and nothing's ever working. i've done the diets, all the diets. before golo, i was barely eating but the weight wasn't going anywhere. the secret to losing weight and keeping it off is managing insulin and glucose. golo takes a systematic approach to eating that focuses on optimizing insulin levels. we tackle the cause of weight gain, not just the symptom. when you have good metabolic health, weight loss is easy. i always thought it would be so difficult
6:24 am
to lose weight, but with golo, it wasn't. the weight just fell off. i have people come up to me all the time and ask me, "does it really work?" and all i have to say is, "here i am. it works." my advice for everyone is to go with golo. it will release your fat and it will release you. >> i'm here dead worms and fish throughout this water. something i discovered if you scrape the creek bed is like chemical coming out of the ground. if you come here let me show this to people i don't know if you can see this on camera but watch this. you can see the chemical pop out of the creek, this is disg disgusting. maria: that was ohio senator jd
6:25 am
vance and east policy in ohio yesterday he's warning of what appears to be hazardous chemicals contaminating the local creek. fema is rejecting ohio governor mike dewine's request for federal disaster assistance. fema is not given ohio help, pete buttigieg is also minimizing this disaster, watch this. >> there is clearly more that needs to be done because while this horrible situation has a particularly high amount of attention there are 1000 cases a year of a train derailment. >> is not just to train the railing it was what was on the train joined to be the washington examiner editor-in-chief. hugo your thoughts on this. his fema and pete buttigieg because ohio is led by republicans customer and. >> are certainly making light of it their performance is
6:26 am
monumental since february the third two weeks ago today since the crash took place. santa derailment took place. pete buttigieg has been a-wall on a whole string of transportation problems while animals were dying in fish were seen dead in the streams. pete buttigieg is elsewhere in the country talking about racial equity on construction sites. it took them ten or 11 days before he even commented on this. fema did not produce a list of the chemicals on the trains for nine days. michael reagan the head of the epa did not visit for going on two weeks. clearly they have been making light of it and they don't want to be associated with this predefined linwood people to enter petebuttigieg blame the administration for loosening regulation and opens up the
6:27 am
question poses the question when you have been ready this department for the past two years if this was important why didn't you do something about it. the response has been in just has been the biden, the harassment would go to the southern border, pete buttigieg in the epa don't want to go to the disaster site in ohio. maria: it is unbelievable, there are people talking about what has taken place in ohio as our chernobyl that's what people in ohio are calling this. the residence there are saying they are looking at toxic train debris everywhere. now other governors and senators are worried these chemicals will flow into their states like pennsylvania, west virginia and north folk southern is offering $1000 settlement to people impacted by the disaster.
6:28 am
they're willing to give a thousand dollars per person. another north folk southern train crashed outside of detroit one car was carrying hazardous material. it did not overturn however. infrastructure deal included $66 billion in spending for railroads. now we wanted awaited the money from the infrastructure package go since obviously it did not find its way to fixing whatever issues were around the railroads in ohio? >> that's exactly right there was a lot of money that went to rail but a lot went to passenger and amtrak. if you look at the for structure bill the priorities of this administration are completely irrelevant $175 billion to subsidize electric cars if you look into them for structure bill it absolutely is reflective of the administration's obsession with two things, the racial justice so lots of money
6:29 am
and infrastructure wet to various bogus things and a lot went to electricity generation through solar and wind and that sort of thing. perfectly willing to subsidize private businesses because they do that with electric cars that they have not done anything or if they have done anything minimal relating to freight, 28% of the fray of this country travels on rail. this is something that needs to be done, you are right trains have gotten a lot longer, up to 3 miles these days operated by two people. and it said in enormous economic important and it is something the administration is focused on. maria: this is the reason so many people say it is safer to put oil in a pipeline as opposed to railways. but of course the president doesn't want pipelines either because he wants to push the
6:30 am
climate change agenda and put fossil fuels out of business. the president stopped at a reporter yesterday because a reporter asked about his influence peddling and his family business deals with china, watch this. >> your family's business. >> mr. president. >> give me a break man. [laughter] [inaudible] >> every time ask a question we have more polite people. >> i will not answer the question even though we have evidence of the influence peddling, this is getting to be really incredible. your thoughts on what the president did yesterday and all of the evidence on the biden laptop where we know this family has taken tens of millions of dollars from officials tied to the communist party of china. >> the president laughs and walks away chuckling as though
6:31 am
there's nothing here and he could do that as much as he likes. there is a conflict of interest and even more the appearance of the conflict of interest. remember it is years since doctor biden's business partner tony bobulinski came out on the record and he said the big guy referred to in various conversations by the hunter biden others was joe biden and he had 10% of the joint venture between hunter biden and a chinese energy committee controlled by beijing. there was a 5 million-dollar payment that came into the country to hunter biden from the energy company. it really needs to be looked at, bob belinsky had three phones to backup his claims of e-mails and texts et cetera relating to this. it is a real test of the administration. although the evidence out there
6:32 am
and what biden does perhaps only thing he can do is chuckle as though it's nothing. maria: now we have to believe the commander-in-chief is going to make the right decision on china when he speaks xi jinping after this by building and despite the fact that is compromising the took all the money is not just tony bobulinski, ron johnson and chuck grassley did the senate report and investigated this influence peddling of the biden family and told us they have evidence of $31 million just from a few deals and that does not include what bob linsky told us. hugo joining us on all of that. we will talk soon. a quick break. what border agents are doing with chinese nationals who illegally cross the border every day. florida congressman greg steube is here with more more reaction with capitol hill. stay witain.h us. ♪

shooting balloons or surveilling our nuclear sites in bringing in their own chinese communist party nationals into our southern border. i've been saying for over two years we have innovation at our southern border and that's exactly what's going on we have an administration completely ignoring current law giving them a notice to appear which you know they are not responded to or showing up for and then refusing to getting to these individuals after they've been deported because the amnesty claims are bogus. it's beyond the pale. it is surprising to me that democrats are okay with compromising our national security in the name of politicized asian. maria: that is true i would like to hear more from the democrats you make a good point but congressman i don't understand why it feels like joe biden is constantly on his heels apologizing to communist china. yesterday the president broke his silence on the three unidentified objects shot down
