>> i think more transparency is helping. they had been able to talk more about that transparency numbers. this company has been on a slow growth train for years. are you at all positive about ibm right now? >> ever since the redhead acquisition. they are getting a little bit more aggressive on the cloud. at least they have that. whether it was apple or amazon. but they really seem to be the focus. they had been stopped dead in the tracks by relators.
>> they have a massive spotlight on facebook. there is some regulatory hurdles to get through for this to ultimately get greenlighted. i missed the question here. for the first time. the beltway's is can a put some hurdles there. it has been more bark overbite. this is a different situation. do you really want to bank with the bank of facebook. i understand but what they were saying. there is definitely some grand standing. and what they're gonna put in. they have the republican administration. he was critical of the big tech guys yesterday as well. tech right now on both sides

>> will you condemn them for the attack in washington? >> some republicans are calling on the president to help to stop the violence. dan patrick is asking for an executive order to unmask the activist and hopefully help curb the violent demonstration. ladies, back to you. >> we want to let all of you know that mark morgan will be on mornings with maria 7:30 a.m. today. >> shares of amazon in the premarket trading slightly to the upside amazon of course wrapped up the prime day and some shoppers complaining because longer than expected delivery times because so many orders flooded the site. a data company said the internet searches for canceling amazon prime or 18
times higher on monday. that suggests that some customers just want to snatch up some discounted items without making that long term long-term commitment to amazon and the annual fee. he apparently is celebrated at the close of prime day by standing on top of the amazon spears at the company's seattle headquarters. >> the stock is up $2,000. if you only knew that when. you could've bought some. when it was under hundred and i did it. let's look at the dow and s&p and the nasdaq. weave green arrows. nasdaq up 18 and half. they trade jabs over healthcare. are they trying to woo one of the biggest fans. as i going to work. in the economy may be booming. details coming up when "fbn:am" returns.

european markets also to the downside. back here at home joe biden has hired a speech writer who works for the former president clinton and obama just a day after his racket performance at the first democratic primary debate last month. in an interview the former vice president said he might -- mocks his aid in the debate. >> how many push-ups you want to do here foul. biden will be in council bluff, iowa later today. >> the 750 billion-dollar health care plan strengthens obama care. and now the strategy ceo.
to discuss thank you for joining us gentlemen. i want to start with you. what can we expect from bernie sanders and how much is it to cost. >> it's only get a cost a lot of money. people don't really know there is different reports and different graphs. >> this is part of the democratic process especially with over 20 candidates. when it comes to healthcare and immigration. i certainly think that both candidates meanwhile. i think in terms of realistic and what can happen faster. i think resident joe biden's plan could be implemented much easier. >> of the cost of bernie's plan would be a 30 to $40 trillion over ten years where does that money come from and is this health as health care debate dividing democrats. i think this is definitely a staggering bill.
and that's part of it. weave a medicare system that is already busting into now take 200 million more people and put them into the system is just taxing it to the extreme. the one thing that no one is talking about in this. whether it is biden's pan -- plan r sanders. this is unconstitutional. that meets the whole thing. unconstitutional. it's no longer attacks. whatever the plan is it is built on the house of cards. the narrative that we are hearing is that of nostalgia. when i was vice president under barack obama obama care was very strong. let's make it better. let's add to it. do you think he is being a little bit to nostalgic care. >> we have to remember that president obama was very popular. first and foremost.
the vice president has been very clear from the beginning let's not do away with obama care. let's build on it. instead of starting all over again. at least from the democratic side at least they had plans. republicans have a zero. no health care plan zero. they should join and see how they can make it better. >> it keeps going back to the obama -- obama years. he's also sucking up to one of his critics at times, alexandria ocasio-cortez. what he think is behind that strategy and is the love returned. >> she has a huge social media following. and they are going as far to the left as they can. i think they have to play to that base. it's gonna backfire. the latest poll just showed that in the own district when
you look at walmart and others of the squad so to speak she has a 9% favorability rating. i think the congress women are one and done. they are exceptions in the party. let's talk about the district. a republican is running against her. her name is sheree murray and she said that -- flat out that alexandria ocasio-cortez is not focusing on us she's focusing as she's focusing on being famous. i think her 15 minutes might be at. or a. or that's not the case. it could certainly happen. i've always said that the republicans had tried to brand the democratic party i could not disagree with that more. i'm a democrat but i've been very clear negotiations happen in congress not on twitter or on facebook. i think they have to be careful.
>> how do you negotiate with the far left? >> this is a democracy we all had to negotiate. there's one thing what you say on twitter but what happens in congress is totally different thing. at the end of the day the majority of democrats and americans are in the middle. and this is just a fact. thank you very much. president trumps latest comments on china. there is still a long way to go before the two countries can reach trade deals. he tried to sound positive on reaching an agreement. >> we will see what happens. we are doing very well economically because their pain is billions of dollars mitch rachelle is here. good morning. there has been some interesting discussion now on where the chinese stand.
he is known to be a hardliner. some say it shows that he will actually reach out and others say this is a signal that the chinese are digging in their heels which is it? >> i think they are digging in their heels. the headwind for them is that their economy is slowing. the fact of the matter is manufactured as lawyering. they have incentives to do something. this is certainly grinding down their economy. maybe it's a negotiating tactic. and i do agree with the president it's gonna be a long process. we will see how it plays out. the thing he has on the side is imposing more tariffs which probably won't be good for our economy. they actually had voted against the united states in favor of china when it comes to tariffs. at the same time this is an
international growth story and now we are hearing more leaders of the central banks around the world put up their hands and say you know what is the trade work continues to drag on it will put the global economies at risk. >> there are some winners and losers there. you look at south korea. there are other economies that are benefiting in the short run from this. over the long run imposing tariffs on any economy is not good for academic success. >> you heard from city and they were talking about credit card delinquencies. they are sound in the positive tone about rate cuts. what are the economic opinions that they have about what the banks are telling us. the theme across them is that the consumer part of the banks are all very strong and given
that our economy is driven by the consumer that bodes well for the quarters ahead. the other thing that is in there is loan growth and loan liquidity. they are continuing to make loans and that when they decide to sell loans they get them off the balance sheet which is common practice. and profits for companies. >> i want to ask you about the survey. the new survey basically the american middle class is now more pessimistic about achieving the american dream in the number really changed just in six months. now it's a seat. basically they are saying in the middle class job growth is stagnated market volatility. what do you make about all of that. i give that survey sc. when you compare to the economic data out there. with low inflation. they are growing at twice the rate of inflation.
i think our economy is strong. i think household debt is almost an all-time low for history. i think the story is pretty good for the middle class and for the entire u.s. economy and the consumer so i don't know where they got that from. i don't know what questions they ask. so i don't know where they got that from. i don't know what questions they ask. and like the fact that you're giving it an a. mitch, thank you very much. >> i give mitch and a. we are putting a face on human tragedy. families from the 727 crashes will testify today. what impact will they have. a six-year-old baseball coach gets ejected from the game and he was nuts. he is so mad this morning.
smart tech is everywhere. and you've done a lot of good for the world. but is that enough. dear tech, we've got some work to do. we need tech that helps people understand each other. tech that understands my business. tech that works at scale. that works with my existing tools. that helps us help more people. let's see some more headlines about that. dear tech, dear tech, dear tech, we're using ibm blockchain to help make sure food stays fresh. we're using ai to help create more accessible, affordable healthcare for all. we're using iot to create new kinds of digital wallets. we're exploring quantum to develop next-generation energy. q-u-a-n-t-u-m, quantum. that's the smart tech i need. let's make a difference in energy. in commerce. in people's health. in the foods you eat. let's make a difference in government, business, and society. let's make a difference in people's lives. let's expect more from technology. let's put smart to work. ♪ ♪
your daily dashboard from fidelity. a visual snapshot of your investments. key portfolio events. all in one place. because when it's decision time... you need decision tech. only from fidelity. >> it could get emotional today on capitol hill family members of people killed into boeing 737 max crashes will testify. the test might -- the
testimony will put a human face on the tragedy. what influence will this head on any action that congress potentially takes on. as you said this humanizes this whole thing. what we're talking about right now is a breakdown of the certification process what went wrong here and that's part of the investigation. the fact that you can have these people whose lives were profoundly impacted by the tragedies this is can have a great impact on the next step. in addition to these hearings where this is the investigatory opponent. the testimony could certainly impact that as well. >> there are at least 46 claims in each of those crashes one in the family members who is testifying today it was a second crash he said in this claim was
grounded after that indonesian crash i would still have my five family members here. how well that play out. >> that will be one of the more impactful statements here. you do crash in october and we know now that boeing engineers have knowledge of an issue with the safety system since 2017. the fact that man lost his family and march after those incidents have come to light that is gonna be a very strong issue with a negligence case and play into what damages could potentially be recovered by the families in the lawsuits. basically it has not dented the stock performance and may be a executives are held accountable or if the lawsuits actually get very expensive we will have more of those
things. some of them will settle and there is a criminal pro to in this. this is gonna be something that we are to be watching for a while. >> how big could this get with a price tag on it? >> tens of millions of dollars. >> i've seen it could be as high as a billion dollars. >> as we wrap this up the house separately is expected to vote on criminal contempt charges today for not to date for not complying with the citizenship question on the census but now the trumpet administration said we are doing away with that question so it is a contempt charge is that even relevant? >> it's a beating a dead horse. they are gonna be dead on arrival anyway. does get forwarded to the doj ultimately who's as i can to prosecute them. that will be tied up in court
