[ cheers ] and a successful launch for the most powerful rocket since the "apollo" missions. the rocket already passing beyond the orbit of mars, and it's a spacex tesla roadster floating through space with david bowie rocking out on loop. >> elon musk just tossed a car to mars. it's so cool. i love that moment. >> awesome. good morning, everyone, welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. it is wednesday, february 7th. it is 4:00 a.m. in the east. the federal government runs out of money in about 44 hours. but leaders from both parties say they are near a deal to fund the government for two years. the republican and democratic leaders in the senate huddling to hash out their remaining -- remaining issues on defense and spending problems. daca has not been part of the spending talks. >> negotiators got a brief scare when president trump jumped into that issue with both feet.
1:02 am
>> we don't get rid of these loopholes where killers are allowed to come into our country and continue to kill, gang members, and we're not just talking about ms13. there are many gang members we already have mentioned. if we don't change it, let's have a shutdown. we'll do a shutdown. it's worth it for our country. i'd love to see a shutdown if we don't get there stuff take -- get this stuff taken care of. >> the white house saying "the president was not advocating for the shutdown." press secretary sarah huckabee sanders turning the president's shutdown comments back on to democrats saying if they want to hold the government hostage over immigration, the president welcomes that fight. >> in case a budget deal is not settled by midnight tomorrow, most agencies will be funded through the 23rd. democrats are likely to oppose it, but it may not matter. a two-year deal could be announced this morning. with the latest, phil mattingly on capitol hill. >> reporter: there's no question the clock is ticking down to the
1:03 am
government running out of money, essentially needing to extend a short-term funding agreement. but the biggest development that's occurred up to this point is not the usual kicking the can down the road. at this point in time, aides in both the republican side and democratic senate of the senate and house tell me they are on the verge of a major budget deal. something that would increase spending caps for both defense and nondefense discretionary spending, up to $300 billion. the type of deal that would essentially lock in a two-year budget agreement. it would include an increase of the debt ceiling. it includes more than $80 billion in disaster relief for hurricane-ravaged florida, texas, and puerto rico. it would include some health care spending, as well. this is the kind of thing that lawmakers have been pointing to as a possibility, essentially clearing the decks of all these major items. looks like they're finally there. the big question now is what are house democrats going do? democrats for a long period of time have held up the possibility of doing a deal like this because they want a daca resolution.
1:04 am
they need lencverage to get tha resolution. house democrats, wary. house democrats are going to be needed, it's going to have to move through the house. republicans are uncomfortable with the large number of spending increases which means speaker of the house paul ryan will need republicans, going to need a lot of democrats, too. christine and dave? >> thank you. white house chief of staff john kelly standing by his comments about undocumented immigrants that some saw as demeaning. audio posted by the "washington post" showed kelly trying to draw a distinction between the 690,000 daca recipients and one million others who potentially qualified for the program but failed to register. >> the difference between 690 and 1.8 million were the people that some would say were too afraid to sign up, others would say were too lazy to get off their asses but didn't sign up. >> there's another reason here, as well. we should note it costs $495 to apply for daca's status. then you pay for renewals.
1:05 am
kelly was confronted by lawmakers in a closed door meeting about the comments. according to people in the room, he repeated the sentiment. white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders tried to spin the lazy label then not on to immigrants but on to democrats. >> we're focused on actually getting a solution. frankly, i think if anybody's lazy, it's probe democrats who aren't showing up to -- it's probably democrats who aren't showing up to work and getting to the table to make a deal on this. >> kelly also told reporters it is not likely president trump will extend the march 5th deadline he gave congress to act on a daca plan. one key player in the talks, republican senator lindsey graham, has renewed optimism. >> i felt really bad yesterday. i feel better today. democrats are openly talking about $25 billion for a wall plus other things. the president tripled the number of people under daca. we're back in the ball game. republican congresswoman collins
1:06 am
says both sides could offer amendments as opposed to introducing a bill written behind closed doors exclusively by republicans. chief of staff john kelly says he expects recommendations by tomorrow on how to handle the democratic memo rebutting republican claims of surveillance abuses by the fbi. kelly says the democratic memo is lengthier than the gop's, around ten pages, and claims the white house is not leaning in either direction when it comes to releasing it. he did offer this warning -- >> where the first was clean relative to sources and methods, my initial cut is this one is a lot less clean. but at the end of it all, it will be guys like rod rosenstein, chris wray from fbi, certainly the national security attorneys at the white house giving the president a recommendation on it. >> remember the fbi advised against releasing the nunes memo, but the president did it
1:07 am
anyway. the president met with rod rosenstein about the memo and targeted him after the nunes memo was released. trump received the democrats' document monday and is working with a five-day window to make a decision. the pentagon is reviewing dates for a military parade in washington at president trump's request. the white house says the president has asked for a celebration so all americans can show appreciation for u.s. service members. the pentagon says planning is in the infancy stage. the "washington post" first reported the president's request for a parade. the paper says it could cost millions of dollars to ship tanks and military hardware into the nation's capital. the "post" reports the president is looking for a parade like the one he witnessed in france last year as a guest of president macron on bastille day. he later marveled about that parade being one of the greatest he had ever seen, and that he wanted to top it. >> we had don't typically do that in this country because the government, military, civilian
1:08 am
control, this is the way it is here. we don't typically celebrate the military in that way. >> you think of russia, you think of -- right now north korea. >> 1991, i believe, there was a celebration after that first iraq -- the first gulf war. it was panned as looking like, you know, celebrating death basically and military action. >> also the issue of funding for the military. currently a problem on capitol hill. >> right. all right. to money now. volatility is back. stocks roaring higher after taking a nose-dive. 1,000-point roundtrip yesterday. some global stocks lost steam overnight. right now you've got some of the european markets, asian markets mixed here. asian markets stalled after a strong start. wall street ended higher after just a wild day, dave. the dow swinging over a trading range of 1,200 points, changing direction 29 times before closing up 567 points. that's a little over 2%. the s&p 500, that's the better gauge of sort of the broader stock market, up just shy of 2%. the nasdaq rose 2%.
1:09 am
the sell-off was sparked by a couple of things. rumblings in the bond market, concerns about wage inflation, whether that will force the federal reserve to raise interest rates sooner or more aggressively than planned. posing a risk to a bull market that's nearly nine years old. but as stocks turn volatile, the market's cheerleader-in-chief, president trump, has kept quiet. testifying yesterday, the treasury secretary, steve mnuchin, says the economics are quite strong. when asked if trump would accept blame for the recent market drop -- >> i think we'll still claim credit for the fact that it's up over 30% since the election. >> he's referring to the dow industrial average. it is up about 35% since election day. typically administrations don't cheerlead the stock market or the economy. in is clearly an exception. >> not typical times in many regards. steve wynn stepping down as ceo of wynn resorts after allegations of sexual misconduct. he's denied the allegations
