1:00 pm
>> shannon: kathy, god bless you, all those working with you across the country and to those that donate as well. we hope the numbers go down. thanks. we know you'll be there. >> thank you. thanks to all that donate and support us. >> shannon: that's the story for july 19. >> i'm going to my office because it's nice and cool. >> i'm worry for the people who are out. people that don't deal with the heat very well. >> the sweat running down everybody's backs. it's quite hot. >> neil: hot and very much bothered. not only in england where temperatures hit a record 104 degrees today, but in parts of
1:01 pm
portugal, spain where the mercury soared past 115 degrees. wild fires have prompted widespread evacuations. thousands displaced in france. hundreds dead from the oppressive hit across europe. nothing like that here but getting very close and moving fast. readings north of 113 degrees there texas and oklahoma today. more than 110 in utah. nearly a third of americans are under similar heat warnings across the country and signs things could get worse before they get better. we have you covered with ryan chilcote in london on how europe is dealing with, adam klotz in new york and how long we'll be feeling it and dr. janet on how you can protect yourself from all of it. welcome. i'm neil cavuto. this is your very hot and very steamy "your world" today. we're learning first and foremost temper are freying in
1:02 pm
london. the latest from ryan there. ryan? >> yeah, neil. 104 degrees fahrenheit in the u.k. today. that is until today unheard of. hot tub weather. we already had broken through the previous record of 101.7 by noon. that's right, before it even hit noon, we had already broken through the record that this country reached back in 2019, three years ago. i know some people out there saying 104, above 100 not that big of a deal. you know, u.k. is known for mild temperatures. this country is known for its rain. not today. today we saw more than one large fire breaking out to two, three fires, big ones in greater london. it's so hot and so dry. all eyes also not just on the fires and the temperature gauges, but the trains today. that's helped millions of britts get around.
1:03 pm
not today. dozens have been cancelled. those running going very slowly. why? exposed to direct stun light, steel rails get hotter than the air. the railway reached 143. when they're too hot, they bend. so you slow them down to decrease the force on the tracks. most of the steel in the rails here was built to operate between 15 and 90 degrees fahrenheit, not in the triple digits that we saw for the first time ever today. also on the infrastructure front, focus on the airports. yesterday london's fourth largest airport had to close because some tarmac on the runway had risen like a loaf of broad in the oven making it up safe for plans to land. the air force halted flights because of the runway at the air base had melted. so far no major disruptions yet
1:04 pm
today. great britain was the hottest play in europe today. an unusual position for an island north of the continent to be in where things tend to be cooler. but it's still very hot on the continent. firefighters have been very busy in slovenia, portugal, spain and france. more than 30,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes. mostly vacation homes in the south of france. a place in peak holiday season right now. you can see it's hot. i know i'm probably sweating there. monday night was the hottest night we've had here in the u.k. the good news is that the temperature is dropping, though i'm sweating. it is expected to get much cooler over the coming days here. you can expect, neil, the conversations that we began hearing a lot about today about climate change, mitigating climate change, to upgrade the infrastructure and railways, you can expect more conversations to
1:05 pm
persist. >> neil: indeed. we expect to keep hearing that from the president's climate adviser. try to stay cool, ryan, a lot of homes in britain don't need air conditioning. don't see a push for it. right now they're regretting that they don't have it. let's go to robert ramey in texas where it's, shall we say, baking. what's the latest, my friend? >> neil, good afternoon indeed. it's so hot here about 110 degrees. that's registered in the shade. if you stand out in the sun, about 115 or so. you can feel the heat coming up on the bottom souls of my gym shoes right now. the grass is baked. that big orange dot that we see, the sun, has been blanketing this region for weeks in temperatures in the high 90s and the 100s. no relief at all. the city of dallas just north of where i'm at, the seventh largest metro in america, is
1:06 pm
literally baking right now. people are hitting what they can, the cooling shelters. fountains, lakes, delivers, pools, anything that they can do. large box fans are being brought out to makes sure that people are as cool as possible. neil, not to mention, there's merge situations. fire and police are seeing an uptick in calls. i spoke to one of the fire battalion chiefs and here's what he told us. >> so we're up probably 50 to 75 run as day or responses. in the last week we've done -- responded to 56 heat emergencies. so that's been a significant increase. we have cooling centers. all of the city's libraries and rec centers are open. go to one of those locations to cool off. you can also reach out through the homeless solutions and various other community partners. office of emergency management
1:07 pm
and the county health department. >> dangerous situation here in the lone star state. it's not just dallas, it's austin, san antonio and surrounding areas. look at the ten-day forecast. goodness, in the 100s the entire time. no relief and no precipitation. they've seen less rain this year than they have since 2011. so this is going to continue with lows in the 80s at night. that's it. that is baking. feels like the desert here because of how dry it is and the kinds kick up. if we look at the drought monitor map and what this weather pattern has done to the region, dallas is in that abnormally dry, the excessively dry drought. in the surrounding area, severe and extreme. not good for farmers and ranchers. i was in oklahoma speaking to them this week. they're suffering 110 degrees in oklahoma city, a lot of money will be lost here and people are
1:08 pm
concerned including energy provider here asking people to maybe turn off the lights if they can. they are being challenged significantly. with the temperatures going up, we're just going to have to wait and see if they can keep up. they had problems in the winter. let's hope it doesn't happen again. to add insult to injury, there's brush fires and wild fires across texas, north of dallas right now. there's a fire that was ignited overnight. fire officials are out there trying to battle it in this incredible heat. anything can spark it. a push, a lawn mower, someone with a cigar. anything can light this on fire. it is a tinter box, neil. can only hope for rain. it's not going to happen for at least another 1 1/2 weeks. neil? >> neil: just incredible. you worry about the grid. it went out in the wintertime. thanks, robert ray. let's go to adam klotz right now at the fox weather center.
1:09 pm
adam, it's summer. people say that's a fact. why is this a big deal in this seems to be a uniquely big deal. what's going on? >> this is really widespread as one of the issues. so intense and so extreme. particularly where robert ray is. we're seeing a big cooling here of warm air in the center of the country. that's where areas are getting hot and record-breaking heat. these are the temperatures we've seen today. so far getting very close to the record-breaking highs and actually in one call in amarillo, a record-breaking high. the heat is intense and likely getting stronger the next couple hours. very large area. texas stretching to the ohio river valley there you see areas in to new england and the mid-atlantic starting to see the heat advisories. all of this heat is expected to spill from the middle of the country to the east coast the next couple days from. the i-95 corridor, d.c., philadelphia, up to new york and boston, feels like temperatures likely getting up to 100 degrees
1:10 pm
the next couple days. so really extreme heat. your heat index is what it feels like when you add the heat and the humidity combined what we're expecting wednesday, up over 100 degrees is what it feels like in new york city. but largely they're at least climbing to the 90s or the middle 90s. only more intense in d.c., 102 degrees for you on thursday. 103 degrees in new york. maybe finally backing off a little bit as you get to the end of the week. not a lot. still feeling like it's in the 90s, this is really intense heat, neil. unfortunately even here on the east coast for the next five or six days, it's longering. >> neil: thank you. adam klotz. what does a traveler do in the middle of this? in england, some runways were turning in to sand. you couldn't move in them. they had to move flights around. traveling by train has been very
1:11 pm
slow. even here we're seeing similar developments. we have more on how you can protect yourself. it's one thing to have flights cancelled or delayed based on weather patterns, storms and the rest. you don't hear because our runway is not as solid as it was. how bad do you think this gets for travelers? >> first we had covid and the restrictions and then inflation and record high prices. now climate change is after the travel industry. so just no winning in sight for us. it can get bad especially over the next week or two from the forecast that i had been hearing on. so people are going to have the look nor alternative means of travel or put it off or risk delays or cancellations as we've seen across europe. >> neil: they have been rerouting flights let's say if
1:12 pm
you were going to heathrow in to neighboring airports to spread the track and deal with the runway issues. we're increasingly saying delays like this because of these unusual conditions. again, much depends on the weather. what is a traveler to do? >> you have to brave it. airports like heathrow and others that have been established a long time, they were it long ago. the runways are a certain length. when it gets hotter, they need longer runways so sometimes they have to divert to other airports because of that. as a traveler, you have to expect that you're going to be inconvenienced with everything, prices, delays and cancellations and now the extreme heat. safety is the most important things. that's the reason they're doing it, whether it is trains, planes or obviously even cars. >> neil: thanks, lee.
1:13 pm
now to janet who worries about folks in this kind of weather. some who have a cavalier attitude about it. doctor, you say you have to be careful. what do you most urge folks to do? >> yeah, absolutely, neil. heat is the number 1 weather related killer in this country. globally kills hundreds of thousands of people. so that's why it's so important to know what to do to prevent heat injury and how to protect yourself. number 1, the most important thing, limit your time outdoors. only takes a matter of minutes before you can start to experience the heat-related symptoms. also, you want to be careful between hours between 11:00 and 3:00 where the most u.v. rays are emitted and where it's the hottest. be careful during 11:00 and 3:00 p.m. light, loose clothing. it's very important. you want your skin to help keep you cool and dry. that is really important what you're wearing. shade is very important if you're outdoors. sit under a free where there's shade. if you're indoors, use fans, air
1:14 pm
conditioning when possible. of course, it's very important to stay hydrated. when you're outdoors and sweating, you lose electrolytes. and it's important what you eat. >> neil: a lot of people get sick in this, people that didn't think they could get heat stroke and do. what is the quickest way to avied that? >> very good question. a lot of the patients that i'm seeing in the past couple weeks, they're suffering from body cramps, muscle aches, dizzy and nauseous. a lot of times you can use conscious. you're sweating. when you feel the symptoms, you want to make sure you get indoors right away where it's cool, hydrate. if you don't see improvement, then you need to seek medical care right away. if you don't seek medical care right away and your symptoms
1:15 pm
worsen, that's when you can develop a heat stroke. that's when you could have internal organ damage, kidney failure. that sort of thing. you're no longer sweating. temperatures goes up to 104, 105. you have red hot skin that is a 911 emergency. if you don't get help right away, you could have irreversible damage, if not loss of life. >> neil: we're watching it closely. thanks, doctor. coming up, we'll be talking to the president's top adviser. right now, leaving you something else that was rocketing today, this is a good thing. stock prices. the dow jones head up 754 points. a lot of this on the notion that we're over the worse of, this be careful with that. when it comes to the averages, they have come back 50% from their lows. not all of them but enough of them. maybe we get through earnings season with better than expected
1:16 pm
numbers or not as bad as expected. for today, that was good enough to put the heat on stocks even with the heat everywhere else. stay with us. migraine hits hard, so u hit back with ubrelvy u level up u won't take a time-out one dose of ubrelvy works fast it can quickly stop migraine in its tracks within 2 hours without worrying if it's too late or where you are unlike older medicines, ubrelvy is a pill that directly blocks a protein believed to be a cause of migraine. do not take with strong cyp3a4 inhibitors. most common side effects were nausea and tiredness. migraine pain relief starts with u learn how abbvie could help you save. ask about ubrelvy, the anytime, anywhere migraine medicine. only two things are forever: love and liberty mutual customizing your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. if anyone objects to this marriage...

1:19 pm
>> neil: we told you about the markets sprinting ahead today.
1:20 pm
netflix night be another end case of how they're having numbers that are not as bad. netflix lost 970,000 subscribers in the latest quarter. but most are expecting it to lose two million or more. so that more than offset the fact that overall numbers were much to write home about but they were better than expected and the stock is up in excess of 8% in after-hours trading. this is part of the way the market is thinking right now. anything that beats even the most dismal of ratcheted down forecasts is enough to get stocks racing as they did today with the dow now not that far from 32,000. keep an eye on that. keeping an eye also on politics and some big, big primaries including in the state of maryland. term limited larry hogan is not able to run again for that high office. but many are competing. this is where the battle gets intriguing.
1:21 pm
aishah hasnie in annapolis with more. hi, aishah. >> hi, neil. good to see you. this race, especially the gubernatorial race for governor is really heating up. i caught up with kelly schultz who happens to be the current governor, larry hogan's choice for this nomination. she was voting earlier. she fired back at former president trump who has been takening shots at her, calling her a rino. she told me that she's been a life-long republican and all of these attacks from the former president are a big distraction. watch this. >> would you call it a proxy war? >> you know, i don't know what we would call it technically. i think it's a distraction. it's a distraction from the republican voters that really want to just have the best candidate. >> yeah, some folks have been calling this a proxy war because the current governor, larry
1:22 pm
hogan, has been mulling a possible run for the white house. now, schultz may feel confident about her position here, but some voters that we spoke to today are a little worried about the former president's influence in this race. >> you think trump will have an influence though? >> i think he does have a big influence over a lot of things going on. yeah, i think he is a -- he's a king maker or whatever. >> are you worried about that? >> very worried about that, yes. >> meantime, on the other side of the isle, nine democrats hope to flip the state to blue. tom perez endorsed by speaker nancy pelosi. these are the frontrunners. primary results could get delayed in maryland. mail-in ballots cannot be counted until two day afters. we looked at 500,000 mail-in
1:23 pm
ballots in the box. we have to wait on the democratic side. republicans, if they're voting in person, we may get a winner for that race tonight. neil? >> neil: we shall be watching to gerry baker, the "wall street journal" at least. gerry baker on the fox business net wore, excellent writer. jerry, this issue about the trump bump and the effect it has in yet another start, his record is pretty strong in getting the people he wants over the finish line. not 1,000% but pretty good. where do you see this whole influence going? >> well, we'll see the maryland gubernatorial primary will be very interesting. you have as aishah said, you have kelly schultz there who is really taking a strong line against donald trump and has earned his ire and response. you have dan cox, who is very much enjoyed trump's support.
1:24 pm
he's organized some of the people to go down to washington january 6th, 2021. he tweeted out i think on january 6 that mike pence was a traitor. so he's very much in the donald trump camp. we don't know how that will go. the polling is close. we'll see. it's another test of the influence that trump has had. he has a mixed record but it's a mixed record on balance that is in his favor. didn't work out well in georgia where his candidates didn't succeed. in many other states, he's been successful. his influence in the party, there's no question. it's influential. all of those other people that are thinking ant running for president in 2024 from ron desantis and nikki haley, all of these people, tim scott, they have to decide whether or not they really want to go up against trump and the extreme ordinary amount of support that he still continues to enjoy in the republican party. >> neil: i get a seasons that
1:25 pm
ron desantis might make the move whether donald trump does or not. i look at that from the more than $29 million that he's raised for his re-election effort in florida. but that money is coming from outside of florida. i'm just wondering whether it's teeing up support for a presidential run of his own no matter what the former president does. >> you may be right. i don't know. i speak to some people that got quite close to the governor. you're right. he's certainly put himself in position to make a run. there was a poll just today in florida, among florida republican primary voters show him beating donald trump. that's his home state. and donald trump's home state, too. that is the governor's home state. he's not beating donald trump in florida -- >> neil: he's closing in other states and nationally where some -- to your point, it's dominated by donald trump, where some are willing to entertain
1:26 pm
someone else. half of all republicans, for example, favored someone other than donald trump. >> yeah, i say trump is itching to get after ron desantis. i think he thinks that he created ron desantis in some ways. if you recall the 2018 race ron desantis ran very, very much as donald trump's man ranking ads that frankly you have to look away from because they were so embarrassingly devoted to donald trump. he did win in 2018 in significant part because he had trump's support. he's steadily been establishing his own record. a very strong record. a strong record on the economy, strong record on handling covid. a lot of people like that. trump thinks that he's there for the taking. trump thinks because of his record, because of trump's own position on things like vaccines and stuff like that where desantis has been a little squirrelly, i thinks that he can take on ron desantis and he
1:27 pm
relishes the idea. >> neil: thanks, gerry. gerry baker, "wall street journal" at least. 7:30 p.m. on fridays. we have more coming up including where we go with this climate push on the part of the president. some might say the timing is odd. given the heat wave, some say it's odd but the white house says it's perfect timing after this. showed that a specific nutrient formula can help reduce the risk of dry amd progression. ask your doctor now about an areds2 supplement. pain hits fast. so get relief fast. only tylenol rapid release gels have laser drilled holes. they release medicine fast for fast pain relief. and now get relief without a pill with tylenol dissolve packs. relief without the water.
1:28 pm
1:29 pm
1:30 pm
>> neil: last week was in president in saudi arabia, this week, i vladimir putin in iran. what he wants, what he's sending and what the iranians are giving after this. .. were delayed when the new kid totaled his truck. timber... fortunately, they were covered by progressive, so it was a happy ending... for almost everyone. this isn't just freight. so it was a happy ending... these aren't just shipments.
1:31 pm
they're promises. promises of all shapes and sizes. each, with a time and a place they've been promised to be. a promise is everything to old dominion, because it means everything to you. >> neil: all right. we don't know the details. what we do know or think we know the president is planning to make some announcement on climate change tomorrow. an initiative is told not to be
1:32 pm
a national climate emergency but something akin to it. the read on this from amos hochstein. mr. hochstein, very good to have you. thank you. >> thanks, neil. >> neil: what are we to expect out of the president? >> i think the president will be -- i'll let him speak to what he wants to announce. the important message is two things: one, we had a split screen this weekend. the president was in saudi arabia meeting with nine of the middle east leaders discussing the strategies for the region, the interest of the united states. today we have the split screen of president putin going to beg for weapons and strengthening his alliance with iran. that puts things in real stark contrast to some degree to why the president was in saudi arabia to begin with. as he comes back from the region
1:33 pm
and he's speaking tomorrow, it accentuates two things. we have to make sure that we have enough oil and gas in the united states and the global economy to make sure that the economy grows and that prices for consumers come down. at the same time, we do need to accelerate the energy transition towards a cleaner and more renewable and more secure energy future of the united states. >> neil: can't you do both? because if you're limiting traditional fossil fuels, i mean and still putting the medal to the metal on the alternatives, is now the time to do this? >> we have to do both. we're not limiting production. what we're saying is in the short and medium term, we have to make sure we have enough oil and natural gas in the united states and around the world. that's what we've been doing. oil production in the united states today is higher than it was on average in the previous administration and i believe we'll -- >> neil: a big difference in the administration before covid and
1:34 pm
after covid. you did also say it was be horrible to see the resurgence of coal. why is that so horrible? it accounts for about a quarter of the energy you get out of utility plants and they power up those electric vehicles. >> i think that we don't want to see the resurgence of coal. that is the most damaging of fossil fuels of all. >> neil: look at germany. they're going knee deep into it because they need it. >> i don't want to be making the mistakes of other countries till we get to the point that -- >> neil: why would coal be a mistake? you combine it with natural gas. i know you're not a fan of that. two energy sources alone account for more than half of the power plants in the country. you get rid of them, you're in a pickle. >> most people don't want coal. >> neil: but their love their electric vehicles. coal is important, natural gas
1:35 pm
is important. they're the energy behind those cool vehicles. >> neil: let me give you a minute. we want to see oil and gas grow. we want to encounter the shortages we've had in those fuels and to make sure the economy can grow. nobody is disputing that. the president has called on producers to increase production and we've been working with opec to make sure -- >> neil: what is in their interest to increase production when you go say that the future isn't them? you have actually asked for it from saudi arabia. it's weird, right? >> neil, i have to tell you most producers understand that the future is in renewables and the future is in electric vehicles. >> neil: so why are you asking the saudis to produce more oil? >> saudi arabia is investing in electric vehicles. an oil company investing in electric vehicles. look at uae. one of the largest producers --
1:36 pm
>> neil: you're right on all of that but by the same token, we learned the president asked the saudis to increase oil production. when they were done, they had the reaction my dad had, we'll see. they didn't do that, will they? >> none of that is accurate. i was there. >> neil: what did they commit to with the president? what did they say? >> i promise i'll answer if you let me. the president did not ask for oil production increases. we have a continued conversation with saudi arabia, with u.a.e. and kuwait. >> neil: what did they say? i read their official statement. >> i promise you i'll answer you. a few days before the president announced his trip, opec announced that they were increasing production for july and august. a headline today already that saudi's production is growing to an all-time high. its exports.
1:37 pm
i read their statement as well. i expect that -- we didn't meet with opec in this meeting, but there's an opec meeting coming up. we'll see what they do. i think that we have a common understanding between the producers of opec and the united states and the market needs to be supplied to the degree that it is necessary to support economic growth. >> neil: so you're saying they agreed to increase production. i didn't hear that. i'll have to defer to you. i know you asked for the same thing from the gcc, the gulf cooperation council, bahrain, kuwait. did those countries agree to increase oil production? >> we did not have that conversation. the president did not make that request. i believe that when opec as it did on june 1 and made an increase in production already a 5 a% increase in production for july and august, i believe that we'll see what happens in august. i believe that we have a common
1:38 pm
understanding of supplying the market. look, neil, it's really critical to understand, just about a month ago, five weeks ago, we had oil prices over $120 and all of the analysts on your show and every other channel were saying we're going to 350. gasoline was over $5 a gallon. everybody said it's going to 6, 7, 8 and $9 a gallon. instead, we're at $103 for oil, so $20 decline in oil. gasoline, the average is $4.50 or $4.48 today. the most common gasoline price in the united states today is $3.99. >> neil: so you're taking credit for the decline. on the upside, it was vladimir putin and the war. what is it? >> well, i think we are in a war. we have to continue to acknowledge that there's a ground war in europe with one of the parties in the ground water
1:39 pm
is the third largest producener the world. that puts a lot of pressure on the risk premiums on oil and eventually -- >> neil: so you think the prices will continue to decline. you're right. 36 straight days of that. we'll watch closely. i'd be remiss, sir, you were in on that meeting where the issue of jamal khaishoggi came up. i'm curious how it came up because the saudi envoy says the president never brought it up. he was at that meeting. >> so the climate envoy did not say that he said he didn't hear it. from where he was sitting, that is possible. i will say that -- >> neil: were you closer to where the president i was sitting when he brought this up -- >> i can tell you, i heard the conversation clearly. the saudi ambassador to the united states gave her account of it as well and talked about
1:40 pm
the fact that it was -- i'll let her words speak for themselves. the president raised khaishoggi, raised human rights more broadly. the crown prince engaged in the conversation. i'd say it was a very direct conservation. both of them were engauged in a district conversation. >> neil: how long did it last? i think you said the president started out raising this with khaishoggi. others in the room. how long did that back and forth go? >> i don't know. it wasn't one statement versus the other. this was a significant conversation on the u.s. perspective on human rights and what happened with the murder of jamal khaishoggi. it was a serious conversation that both sides engaged in. it was a significant conversation. i won't go into how many minutes. that's less relevant to go into that debate.
1:41 pm
the president raised it as he always does. i have to tell you, i traveled with the president before. human rights is almost always on the agenda, always on his plate and his concern. because he believes it's not only his concern, it's the concern of the united states of america. it's the values that we stand for. >> neil: were you surprised and was he surprised by the reaction to his trip and particularly the fist bump of mohammed bin salman in retrospect that it was a mistake? >> this is a trip that had historic consequences. just the flight over there when we flew there from israel to jeddah was the first time in history that that flight, a direct flight from israel to jeddah took place. they opened the skies to israeli -- aircraft too and from israel. after seven years of a war in yemen with thousands of casualties and people dying in that war, we have never had as a
1:42 pm
result of this meeting, the negotiations ahead of it the longest period of a cease fire. we talked about countering iran. we talked about joint investments in renewable energy and nuclear power. we talked about 5g. there was an enormous amount of deliverables of achieved success in this trip. i think the fist bump, you know, if it was a handshake, you'd ask me if it was a handshake -- >> neil: you're right. we have to deal with what we have to deal with. we had to negotiate joseph stalin and ending world war ii. he was no choir boy. i understand where you're coming from. i'm curious on your take. you would know what mohammed bin salman is like. he has been deemed a murderer of this "washington post" journalist. i'm wondering whether you share that view that mohammed bin salman is a murderer. >> we were there to discuss.
1:43 pm
i've traveled to saudi arabia many times over 27 years and over the last six months. the most important thing that i think that we should be focused on is what is good for american interests, for the american people. >> neil: talking to someone like mohammed bin salman is part of the process. >> leaving a vacuum in the middle east to allow china and russia to take over and take -- >> neil: i understand that. these are part of the realities of diplomacy. you have to talk to this guy. you can't ignore him. is that the end result? >> the end of the day, we have to go to the region and engage its leaders. the president engaged first in israel and the palestinian authority and with nine leaders in the middle east. he met with the entirety of the middle east. the split screen of the president meeting with the nine leaders of the middle east while putin is in iran, that is the focus, not a fist bump or not. it's about iran supplying uavs

and military equipment to the russians to execute a war in ukraine. and where the president is, he's sitting in jeddah with nine leaders of the middle east i think to prevent russia and china from engaging there and taking a foot hold there. that's what we should be focused on. if we can do that while we reduce the price of oil by $20 a barrel, while reducing gasoline prices at the fastest rate in decades -- >> neil: no matter who you have to deal with, right? >> thanks, neil. >> neil: amos hochstein, the presidential coordinator for international energy affairs. more after this. intment... ♪ pop rock music ♪ >> tech: ...we can replace your windshield and recalibrate your advanced safety system. >> dad: looks great. thanks. >> tech: stay safe with safelite. schedule now. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ ♪♪ ♪♪

>> it shows the degree to which mr. putin and russia are increasingly isolated. now they have to turn to iran for help. >> neil: all right. john kirby sounding a lot like
1:49 pm
the president's energy adviser here a few minutes ago saying that the juxtaposition of the president of the united states, you know, talking to the saudis and israelis before that. the president of russia talking to the iranians and getting them to provide military weaponry shows how far down the russians have come. i want to get the read from lieutenant keith kellogg, what he makes of what both of what these gentlemen are saying. what do you think, general? >> hi, neil. glad to be on with you. putin set up this trip after president biden set up his trip. he's going to i ran and talking to the supreme leader, and then he's got president erdogan of turkey, a couple of reasons. he wants to make sure the entire world knows that he's relevant on the stage by going into the middle east where the president was just at and he's trying to get an arms deal. the iranians have probably one of the finest and most lethal
1:50 pm
drone technologies in the world today. they're masters at it. we've seen them work at it in saudi arabia and with the houthis. they want to bring back the technology to use against the ukrainian. when he talks with president erdogan, he wants erdogan by not giving drones and getting the grain shipments out of the black say. he said i'm not such a bad guy. i'm wokking with the ukraine to move the grain shipments out. there's over 20, 25 ships ready to load grain from the ukraine and from russia right now, move through the black sea. turkey controls the passage in to the black sea. it's all putin just trying to show that he's a good guy, the same time he's getting equipment, lethal equipment from the abe -- iranians.
1:51 pm
>> neil: you think the president had more success with the saudis? >> i think it's a mixed bag. i don't think he did. i think it was a lot of "show" there with the fist bump with mbs. i don't think there's a good relationship there at all with the saudis. i don't think they'll give him any break at all. they're not going to bend over backwards or help with any oil exports to a large degree. frankly, i'm very concerned about that relationship because the saudis are in fact buying equipment from the russians. something they have never done before. think thigh they're looking at other ways other than the united states. under the current administration, i don't believe they trust president biden and i don't think they like him at all. it's a mutual relationship out there. the whole thing about khaishoggi, you know, he probably did address it to mbs. mbs was obviously involved with the entire operation.
1:52 pm
he's the crown prince. he's the successor to kill salman. you have to have this diplomatic relationship and you prefer photo not say bad things about people in private. biden said it in public. i don't think that's a good way to have a relationship with saudi arabia. >> neil: i wonder in saudis are playing off of the russians. >> they probably are. i don't think they have a lot of faith in this government. diplomatically, they're doing the same thing. that's why they're starting to buy russian equipment. something that they have never done before. they're trying to make sure that there's no fracture with iran as well. their big fear is iran. they know russia is a big mover in iran and they're trying to make sure it doesn't go to another war. i see what they're doing. >> neil: you have a fine mind, general. thanks for your service to this country, a genuine article.
1:53 pm
let's take a look what's going on on wall street today. i told you about the run-up in the markets today. the backdrop for this is a battle royale with the world's richest man and twitter. so far right now advantage twitter with a key court decision today. susan li has more on that. susan? >> one goes to twitter in this court battle with elon musk. the delaware judge is siting with twitter for a five-day trial to start in mid to late october instead of med february. the twitter said the company is being harmed the longer the overhang of this deal lingers. the judge said she might extend the trial past five days depending on the evidence being presented. most legal experts say that twitter has the advantage in this court case. elon musk had waived due diligence and agreed to fast track the deal through. there's a clause in the takeover agreement that twitker be liable for any misleading material facts and waving due diligence
1:54 pm
doesn't get twitter off the hook if they made fraudulent disclosures like bots on the platform. musk responded to a user that pointed that out. twitter's stock did go up after this favorable court ruling. at $40, it's nowhere near to the $54.20 price that musk agreed to buy the company at. musk could walk away or get getter at a cheaper price. maybe closer to the $40 range. there's reports that musk might counter sue to get more time or discovery power to see what and when twitter knew about the number of bots on the platform. we heard from one columbia law professor. he thinks we could see a settlement. important to know here, we have tesla earnings wednesday. twitter earnings friday. you can imagine that wall street might have a few questions about this court case.
1:55 pm
>> neil: real quickly, susan. an expedited court deal is something that benefits twitter, right? if musk didn't want it. why? >> the process of discovery and a slowing economy with slow advertising revenue. the ad spenders realize there might be more bots and means less sales for twitter, which brings down the price. >> neil: got it, susan. got through my thick skull. thanks. charlie gasparino top give some context to this. where do you think this whole battle is going, charlie? >> i want to say, i think susan might have misspoke there. there's not fines here with the judge. this is a civil judge. it's not the sec or justice department. he might be forced to pay money to twitter in a settlement meeting elon musk. it's not -- >> neil: more than the billion dollar breakup. twitter wants -- >> this is not a sanction from
1:56 pm
the sec. >> neil: where do you see it going? >> here's what i think. i think it's going to settle. if you look at the price of the stock right now, it's at $40. it seems to be a reasonable price where, you know, twitter might settle for selling it and elon musk might settle for buying it. this whole thing was a charade to essentially get the price down. you know, it's interesting. i just like to know like does twitter really want to go to war with elon musk over the bots? its bot disclosures have been funky. i'm not saying that they lied. it's always been squishy. well, might be less than 5% but could be more. by the way, if this stuff starts getting out there that it's more, that will hurt their business going forward. so the most logical thing is for a settlement on both sides. now, you -- i don't think a court will compel a sale to a buyer that doesn't really want
1:57 pm
it. it will be -- if musk says that price, this is attractive to me. i think there's a settlement. the fact that it's trading at $40 a share is interesting. that shows where the market thinks -- >> neil: instead of $44 billion, and i'm doing the math backwards, that would be like a $27 or $28 billion deal. >> that sounds about right. there's no other buyers out there. if you go to court with musk and he shows that those bots are a real problem, i'm not saying they're the 20% that he is, maybe it's 8% that is like -- pretty high. higher than they have been closing, the front line numbers besides the squish and the hedge. >> neil: you give up due diligence is something that a potential client would do to make sure that they cross all the ts and dot the is and knows the ins and outs and he waves
1:58 pm
that. doesn't that mean it's on him? >> it might be. although, again, does twitter want to go through with this? if he comes with a reasonable offer, do they want it exposed? he will expose their bot issues. >> neil: what if they don't have them? >> they probably do. >> neil: careful there. we don't know, right? his currency is tesla's stock. it's been moving up. we'll know where the company stands going forward. but what do you think? >> listen, this is my humble opinion. they probably have bots because of their hedging over the years. again, tesla, there's no doubt that elon musk is trying to pull a fast one here. he started trying to get out of this deal the minute, the minute tesla started to tank and he should have known it was going to tank because the feds raising rates and risky assets coming
1:59 pm
down. it's bizarre that he will sue twitter. take that off of the table as a reasonable course. if you think about it, what damages did they cause him? he's the one that is screwing around with them. he's got to get a lawyer to file that 1. i'm not saying he won't do it but it could be laughed at by the court. again, the reasonable, logical thing. we're talking and elon musk here. when i say logic, take it broadly. they settle in the middle and that he buys it, he buys it at a lot less of a price and we go away and talk about something else. this all happens in october as john coffee said. who knows. >> neil: who knows is right. >> i hate game playing. >> neil: you're just a country reporter. i've heard that. charlie gasparino. clarification from my interview with the president's energy adviser on the saudis and what they committed to. at the time of the meeting and after it was wrapped up, the
2:00 pm
saudis have not committed to increased capacity. i likened it to your dad telling you if you had a question, he'll say we'll so i. the saudis said we'll see. ney did not boost production or promise to do any of the sort. that will do it here.
