receiving in federal custody on the border. that is not what president trump has requested in terms of addressing loopholes in immigration law. that just adds to the agitation between congress and the white house. house democrats will go home saying they voted on an immigration measure but it's not one addressing the underlying problem. in washington, mike e emmanuel, fox news. cheryl: the trump administration is extending the authority to deport migrants without letting them appear before judges. the fast track deportations can apply to anyone in the country illegally for less than two years. it was previously for those arrested shortly after crossing the border. lauren: facebook is set to announce a settlement over privacy practices as soon as this week. the settlement will include a record $5 billion fine. it would also create a new board committee that will have oversight on how facebook treats user privacy. facebook came under fire

center for invests this morning with three dow components out with their results and of course we've got one after the closing bell, that's visa, with nearly 20% of the s&p 500 reporting, reports coming in so far ahead of expectations. jonathan honing is here this morning. united technologies, we're looking at maybe a 4% jump in earnings per share year over year, revenue as well at 17%. >> keep in mind, the market is 1% from the all-time high. stocks are historically expensive. the pe ratio, the measure of how open cheap ocheap or expensive s around 22. stocks need to show the earnings to prove they can sustain multiples. a lot of them have beaten expectations, about 80. cheryl: we're looking for language about the trade war with china or the expectation of tariffs. we haven't gotten a lot of commentary from cfos on that.
5:17 am
why? >> that was commonplace last year. a lot of companies mentioned the trade war particularly. we haven't seen it as much this year. all eyes will be not on some of the names already that you mentioned like united technologies, a lot of companies have had lowered earnings expectations, then they've come out and beaten them. the stocks have done very well. technology's going to be the most important. those shares are up about 30% year-to-date and they've been the leadership. names like amazon, facebook, if the fangs can't perform, i think the market will struggle. cheryl: facebook was expected to get to the settlement announcement before the close of traying tomorrow, we'll -- trading tomorrow, we'll hear about the $5 billion with the ftc. >> it's a drop in the bucket for a company like facebook. we like to think the settlement means it's settled. when it comes to facebook, it's almost like the nuclear industry was in the '80s, pharmaceuticals were in the '90s, oil was in the 2000s, that's big tech right

government intervention, whether it's the ethanol boom and bust or the global financial crisis. cheryl: she took another swipe at her favorite r target, the banks. the banks haven't said that things are dire for them. it's been interesting. jonathan, great to have you on the set. lauren, over to you. lauren: thank you. apple reportedly close to buying intel's business for modem chips used in smartphone. the wall street journal reporting the two companies are in ain advanced talks. there's been rumors of a deal since apple dropped its legal fight with qualcomm. the journal said it would jump start apple's push to bring the development of critical home components in-house. apple shares a quarter of 1%. intel up 1 and a third percent this morning. cheryl: coming up, the clock is ticking. the president has a deal on the debt ceiling but the house still has a full plate before the summer recess. why one of the president's key issues could be in jeopardy. and one lawmaker is going after

lauren: president trump and congressional leaders reaching a budget deal that fends off concerns over a possible government shutdown, but congress still has a pretty long to-do list before the summer recess starts. let's bring in ned ryan, a gop strategist and robin byro a former campaign regional field director. ned, i want to start with you. it looks like the president is supporting this budget deal but there is -- there are many republicans who are saying,
5:24 am
look, this is a poison pill, don't swallow it, you've got to get more spending cuts. >> no, i think at some point we're either going to feel pain now or we'll feel pain later. the fact is, we're going down this path, we are at $5.5 trillion in national debt 20 years ago, now we're over $22 trillion. we either feel pain now or later. at some point, we are actually going to have to address the social welfare programs that make up over two-thirds of our mandatory federal spending. if we will not address social security and medicare, i don't think there's any way to get our fiscal house in order. somebody is going to have to have the plight courage to do it. -- political courage. lauren: there is a letter circulating on capitol hill basically saying president trump, don't sign this debt ceiling increase because the country can't afford it. i want to move on. so much to discuss, robin. before congress leaves for their summer recess, what else can they get done? where do we stand on usmca in the house?
5:25 am
>> we've got to get that done. and that's a deal killer. we've got to get that done. i would like to see the 9/11 survivors' bill get the adjustments done that rand paul wanted and get that passed because honestly, that would leave my party wide open to attack them headed to the 2020 elections. so those two things have got to get done. i agree ned, there will be deficit hawks that will be chomping at the bit to see what we can do about that. lauren: in the midst of all of this, there is a new npr poll, take a look at the numbers, for july, after the so-called racist tweets telling the squad to go back home, the president's approval rating, 44%, is at a high. ned, is this because his strategy of painting the squad as anti-american is working? >> yeah, i do think so. first of all, i would say those tweets of course were not
5:26 am
racist. he was highlighting the fact that these are deeply anti-semetic socialists. he made them his foil until democrats decide who their 2020 nominee is. i would remind people, the day donald trump was elected, his approval rating in the gallup poll was at 36%. when he's 8 to 10 points higher now, i feel really good about where he's at. i think it will go even higher because of the economy and people looking at him and saying he's handling the economy very well and incumbent presidents don't lose, especially those with strong economic numbers. lauren: next week, we have debates. robin, everyone is talking about night two because then you have round two if you will of joe biden versus kamala harris. what fireworks do you expect? are you surprised or concerned that biden, while leading, is also losing some of his lead? >> lauren, i'm not at all surprised. i called this one early on. i said his campaign would
5:27 am
eventually die by attrition. it's just taken longer than i anticipated. so i am expecting for kamala harris to come after him again. i'm more intrigued to see what happens on night one between elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. they're good friends but i expect for one of the two of them to go after the other one, to try and gain some ground there because they're pulling from each other's voters. lauren: who is the bigger of the progressives, i guess. ned, finally, one of the squad, rashida tlaib, she's calling own a $20 an hour minimum wage. will this push let's say joe biden further left here? $20 minimum wage, is that even feasible? >> it's insanity. i remind people really quick, lauren, that the obama white house 2016 made the point that those jobs making $20 or less, 83% of them are going to be
5:28 am
replaced by automation in the very near future. in new york city, a lot of the restaurants are replacing the $15 minimum wage jobs with automation. so this is insanity, in defy yankdefianceof what is happenin. i expect the democratic party to go even further left with more insane ideas like this one. lauren: thank you for the discussion this morning. have a good day. cheryl: let's look at wall street this morning. it is tuesday. we've got green arrows to show you. the dow is up 66 in the premarket, s&p up 6 and-a-half and nasdaq up 21 and a quarter. three dow components report before the open. watch futures this morning carefully. set your clock, robert mueller is set to testify tomorrow. the question, will he ow obey guidelines set out for him? a legal opinion is coming up. drones are really hot right now. one company wants to make them

worldwide. theresa may is preparing to chair her final cabinet meeting as prime minister as members are arriving at downing street. we want to show it to you, a live look from london. today the ruling conservative party expected to choose borris johnson to take over the role, the former mayor of london. he'll have just over three months to deliver a brexit deal. cheryl: benjamin hall is joining us live from london. johnson's got a long and complicated road ahead of him. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. he certainly does, lauren and cheryl. he's going to hit the ground running, a lot of major issues in the u.k. to deal with automatically and straight away. if it is borris johnson, we'll find out in over an hour's time, he will become the 77th prime minister of the u.k. he is a bit of a celebrity over there. he's known as borris over here. this comes after months of battle between borris johnson and jeremy hunt and the vote was in the hands of the 160,000
5:34 am
conservative party members, not the country. that's because theresa may stepped down as leader of the conservative party. the winner will become her replacement. theresa may has been heavily criticized during her premiership. >> theresa may is the mitt romney of great britain. the press will love her and all the establishment country club types may love her but the people don't. >> reporter: alexander borris defel johnson was born in america. he renounced his u.s. citizenship in 2015. he was formerly the mayor of london. with those two major issues to deal with straight away, one of them is brexit, the other iran. after a british tanker was seized in the strait of hormuz. he will find anil li an allyh president trump. >> i like borris johnson, i
5:35 am
always have. he's a different kind of a guy. they say i'm a different kind of a guy well. we get along well. >> reporter: borris was elected to get brexit through. it's an issue which continues to divide the u.k. and borris pledged to leave the european union with or without a deal on october 31st. that's the date when the u.k. would crash out of the eu. there have been a number of resignations in the cabinet, people who say they won't serve under borris johnson. generally he's seen as more of a unifier. the people tend to love him even though the politicians necessarily don't. lauren: benjamin, thank you very much. let's bring in joshua mahoney, a market analyst. joshua, good morning. borris says we're leaving october 31st. what are the chances that that doesn't happen and that deadline gets postponed, something borris said no, no, no, that will never happen. what are the chances it does happen?
5:36 am
>> look, i mean, you would have to be a bit of a sinic but there are a lot of cynics around here. people have pointed to previous times johnson has gone back on his word. he has got into power on the ticket of leaving in october. that's what people are looking for if he does win, will we see him softening the once hard lines in terms of the deadline because quite frankly, the ability to get a deal done by october, just three months when theresa may couldn't do one since 2016, it looks he very doubtful, quite frankly. lauren: what else are you watching today? markets where you are and across europe mostly higher today. >> certainly today everyone is looking at the pound because we're going to try to see who is going to be leading the u.k. and it's all about whether we get a no deal brexit or not, down the line. also keeping the eye on the potential for a rate cut on the ecb on thursday.

donald trump talking about potential currency manipulation and the question mark is are the ecb and mario draghi going to front run the fed and decide to cut rates first. lauren: joshua mahoney, thank you very much. cheryl: back at home, robert mueller's long-awaited testimony on capitol hill takes place tomorrow. he's expected to be grilled about five hours on the findings of his two-year russia investigation. one person who may not be watching, the president. >> i'm not going to be watching mueller because you can't take all those bites out of the apple. we had no collusion, no obstruction, we had no nothing. cheryl: many others across the country are going to be watching for a preview, let's bring in attorneyly sharattorney richard. if he goes off script, the administration doesn't really have any resource, even though the doj has just issued these guidelines that he needs to stick to the facts of the report
5:38 am
where he didn't find collusion. what do you expect? >> that's correct. essentially the administration is not going to do much, nor are the democrats or the republicans. he will be on script. robert mueller if nothing else has been ethical and tried to do it in the most proper method possible. he will essentially go on script, repeat the mcgahn problems on obstruction, repeat the fact there's no collusion and he will essentially stay the course. he doesn't want to create more havoc than has already been stirred by his report. cheryl: really what is the point of this? i think that's been asked many times already. this is a man, and we do believe he is, that will do exactly what he said he would do from that press conference which is my report is my testimony, he's being subpoenaed, he doesn't want to be there. what are we actually going to get out of this thing tomorrow? >> the report is sound bites. both sides will get good sound bites. the democrats will say my goodness, he confirmed that
5:39 am
mcgahn asked that mueller be fired time and time again. the republicans are going to ask questions to confirm that they couldn't find collusion. what you're going to find here essentially is whoever is on the right is going to stay on the right and whoever is on the left going to stay to the left. essentially this is going to be if you will confirmation from both sides as to both parts of the report. that's all this really is. i don't see much happening. cheryl: we had a live report earlier in the show, they're holding basically mock hearings now. they're rehearsing actually to get ready for this. this could be maybe just grand-standing or do you think they're trying to come up with some kind of gotcha question for mueller. >> there will be gotcha questions but it won't result in a gotcha response. there may be questions from aoc which is a pretty good question but mueller will essentially say, as i said in my report, a, b, c and d.
5:40 am
he's not going to give any answers that will be that revolutionary. cheryl: that sounds like a drinking game, as i said in my report. richard roth, good to have you. lauren: refer to page 429. death rates are rising for young adults right here in the united states. cheryl: tracee carrasco has the details. tracee: a new government analysis adding new details to a grim picture of worsening health trends across the nation, according to the centers for disease control, death rates for adults 25-44 rose 25% for white and black adults and 13% for hispanic adults. most victims in the age group died from drug overdoses and suicides. new york senator chuck schumer getting into a food fight with grubhub. senator schumer tells the new york post he's been in talks with grubhub over bogus fees the food delivery service has been charging restaurants nationwide. he's demanding the company cough
