7:02 am
january 1, 2019. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with save that guthrie and hoda kotb live in from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to "today," thank you for joining us on this thursday morning. it's not everyday someone who makes history walks into our studio in the morning. >> after walking across antarctica first person to do so alone unaided. he hasn't even stopped at home. he stopped to tell us about this epic trek, colin o'brady will sit down and talk with us in a few. first, our top story, president trump on his way to the border after walking out of key negotiations to end the shutdown. we have peter alexander near the border in texas. good morning meter. >> good morning, hoda. this is the stip of steel barrier the president is talking about when he says he wants to build the wall. taking his campaign to get it built in texas.
7:03 am
the heart of the rio grande valley. this is the busiest stretch in recent years for illegal crossings. his visit comes amid the shutdown breakdown. the blowup inside the white house situation room yesterday. it comes as tomorrow the u.s. is set to tie the record for the longest shutdown in history. president trump bound for the border, leaving the nation's capital in turmoil after talks to end the shutdown, now in its 20th day, collapsed? >> our meeting didn't last long. >> the president walking out of a contentious 20-minute closed door meeting with democrats in the white house situation room. democrats say the meeting fell apart when president trump asked house speaker nancy pelosi whether she would agree to fund a border wall in exchange for reopening the government. >> he said if i open up the government, you won't do what i want. a few minutes later he sort of slammed the table and when leader pelosi said she didn't
7:04 am
agree with the wall he walked out and said we have nothing to discu discuss. >> reporter: the president calling the meeting a total waste of time adding when pelosi rejected his waste of a wall, he said bye-bye, nothing else works. >> the president made his position clear that there will be no deal without a wall. there will be no deal without the priorities the president has put on the table. >> reporter: the breakdown sparking new concerns among moderate republicans who want the government to reopen. susan collins with lester holt. >> i'm worried about what the end game is. this cannot be allowed to go on forever. >> reporter: still, the president insists his party is behind him. >> we have tremendous republican suppo support. >> reporter: president trump's southern border visit is designed to highlight what the white house has claimed is a national security crisis. >> a humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border. >> reporter: in fact, government
7:05 am
figures show border apprehensions are down from their peak in the early 2000s. the white house also under fire for citing a humanitarian crisis as part of its argument for the wall. and while the number of crossings by families with children and unaccompanied children has gone up between october 2017 and november 2018, critics blame the president's own policies for that increase, particularly the administration's move to forcibly separate migrant families at the border, a policy the white house has abandoned. president trump scheduled to get a briefing about boarder security. it's also a region where 25 miles of new wall has already been funded by the federal government, set for construction to begin, he will be visiting the city of mcallen which is one of america's safest cities, the heart of a fierce debate over whether there is a border crisis home. da and savannah, back to you. >> peter, thank you. >> now to capitol hill where it's two words, kasie hunt. now what?
7:06 am
you have both sides dug in, nobody wants to budge. how does this end? >> it's completely unclear at this point, savannah, the incentives for both sides are simply to dig in. the democrats have no incentive to say okay mr. president, we'll give you what you want. our polling shows the american people are with them. they don't think the government should be shut down for this border wall. there are some behind-the-scenes negotiations between jared kushner, the president's son-in-law, lindsey graham and a small group of senators to expand these negotiations to perhaps include some things that democrats want like protections for dreamers, kids brought here through no fault of their own and who have troubled legal status but at this point it isn't clear democrats want to play ball on that and this is still in the president's court at the end of the day. he has really backed himself into a corner here. >> there is pleasure on both
7:07 am
sides come tomorrow when it's the first day people aren't getting their paychecks. it's also the longest stretch we've had one of these shutdowns, right, kasie? >> that's right, the pain that americans will be feeling is something that hasn't necessarily found its way here to capitol hill yet although it's starting to. we heard from government workers who came up with democrats. they were asked for a show of hands who among them supported this wall in exchange for this shutdown. not a single hand went up. we know president trump has said he thinks federal workers are on his side. a different story in washington it seems, hoda. >> and we learned 80% of federal workers are outside washington so we'll see how this develops. casey, thank you. moving on to the powerful winter storm set to sweep across the country. it will bring snow and ice and bitter cold to millions of people. al roker has been tracking this.
7:08 am
mr. roker, what's up? >> another system, first we have some lake-effect snow making its way down into the northeast and parts of new york. snowfall amounts fairly light. near from two to six inches of snow in northern new england. here's the next big system coming out of texas. rain in the southern plains but late-day snow developing into missouri, indiana, ohio and the mid-atlantic. into saturday the rain stays down to the south through southeast. secondary low develops but we think because of this high pressure that will depress the snow line down into new jersey, washington, and the mid-atlantic but if that high breaks down, we could be looking at more significant snow. here is what we look for impact wise through sunday night. anywhere from six to nine inches of snow central missouri into indiana. we have a lesser amount, about two to four inches as we make our way to the east and then we get into the appalachians.
7:09 am
we're talking about heavy bands of snow for the west virginia mountains, anywhere from six to nine inches and we could see winter weather advisories for washington depending on the track of the storm. we'll continue to track it for you as well. guys? new jersey leader kim jong-un says he is committed to a second summit with president trump. kim told chinese president ching he wants to, quote, achieve results that will be welcomed bety international community. kim renewed his commitment to denuclearization. in the meantime, the president said negotiations were already under way for a location for their next summit and that the announcement would be made in the future. >> craig joins the table, another story getting attention. police in arizona are investigating a disturbing case. a woman in a coma for more than a decade gave birth at a nursing facility. morgan chesky is in phoenix with more. good morning. >> craig, good morning.

"variety" reporting for the first time in nearly three decades the academy awards show will have no host, instead taking on a new format -- delegating the role of emcee to a series of stars set to introduce various segments. the producers of this year's show left scrambling to line up top talent to carry on the ceremony now just six weeks away. it comes after comedian kevin hart stepped down as host last month, two days after he was tapped to host. the reason? past comedy routine and tweets

7:34 am
together at a golden globes aft after-party. sanchez is also reportedly divorcing her husband of 13 years. nbc news has not confirmed that the two are dating. jeff and mackenzie bezos first met in 1992, working at a new york hedge fund. mackenzie told "vogue," my office was next door, and all day, i listened to that fabulous laugh. how could not not fall in love with that laugh? two years and a marriage later, amazon was born. jeff remembered the moment during an interview with "business insider" last year. >> i went to her and said, i want to quit my job, move across the country, and start this internet bookstore. even before she could say, what's the internet, she said, great, let's go. >> reporter: mackenzie took on the role as accountant for amazon in the first year, a business started in their gar e garage, evolving into an empire.
