good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm abby phillip. >> i'm christine romans. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. all right. the balloons are ready. but will they fly? kids love them. but admit it, you do, too. 3 million people on the streets. tens of millions at home, eagerly awaiting them and the floats and the marching bands. did i mention the balloons? they fly only if the weather cooperates. cnn's miguel marquez is live on the parade route. miguel, i know if it's too windy these are not going to go up. >> reporter: i would have said there's no way on earth these balloons would go up the way the wind was howling at home this morning. right now, it is calm, cool and collected. there's the tom turkey all ready to go.
and one of the new big balloons, astronaut snoopy. that's ready to go. they're now trying to figure out. they'll make that call close to parade time. 23 miles per hour gusts up to 34. they want to avoid a situation like in 1997, when a woman was critically injured along the parade route when a gust up to 40 miles per hour hit. part of the problem is, that wind is blowing from the west. as they go down, they're fine behind the buildings. when they go into the intersections, those balloons with take a life of their own. they have their work cut out for them. there will be tons of volunteers to keep the balloons down. the bands, the cheerleaders, 1,200 cheerleaders and 1,000 clowns. it's not just about balloons. we have clowns, as well. speaking of clowns, back to you. >> 1,000 clowns and 1 miguel marquez. >> we're keeping our fingers crossed for the good weather
today. that's the fun part. but less fun, the two huge weather system that scrambled holiday travel, with downpours, wind and snow. 300,000 businesses and homes were without power on wednesday. one system, a bomb cyclone, hammering the west with rain on the coast and heavy snow in the mountains. >> a crash to that scene. >> dash cam footage showing a utah trooper leaping for his life when a vehicle crashes into his patrol car. another storm has minneapolis officials declaring a snow emergency. more than a foot has fallen in parts of michigan and wisconsin. and storms rolled through the northeast last night. in llouisville, kentucky, winds are so fierce it snapped a radio tower in half. with the forecast, derek van dam. >> happy thanksgiving, abby and
christine. our animations describe it best. you have a turkey blowing in the wind in the northeast. a turkey holding an umbrella across the nation's interior. and a shivering turkey in the mountain west. windy conditions along the east coast. that could impact your traveling plans, along the i-95 corridor. perhaps at the east coast airports, from d.c. to philadelphia and new york, as well as boston. no problems across chicago. look at los angeles, as another storm system moves in. there's the mountain snow. there's the valley rainfall. it could become heavy at times.. look at the advisories and warnings in place for much of the country. temperatures will feel very winter-like. you see from chicago to cleveland. milder weather, though, for your holiday across the east coast. back to you.
>> i loved those graphics. very clever. it brings me to the annual question. i was taught, you keep your elbows off the table. and keep your politics off the table. but people want to talk about what's going on around the world. what are your rules for politics at the dinner table at thanksgiving? how do you survive? >> do you have rules at your house? >> i try to avoid it. this is what i do. you can talk to each other about prit politics. i'll talk about the weather. >> tweet us your rules. how will you survive politics at the dinner table? meantime, things are going from bad to worse to rudy giuliani. "the new york times" reports the president's personal attorney privately pursued hundreds of thousands of dollars of business from ukrainian officials, at the same time he was digging up dirt
on joe and hunter biden. that's contradicts what rudy giuliani said last week. >> i have no financial interest in the ukraine. i'm not going to financially profit from anything in the ukraine. i have no business interests in the ukraine. >> one proposal signed by giuliani involved the ukrainian ministry of justice. another deal had giuliani respecting yuri le sen coe. he was working with giuliani. his self-dealing is under intense scrutiny, president trump is looking to distance himself. kaitlan collins is traveling with the president in west palm beach. >> abby and christine, it sounds a lot like what the president used to say about michael cohen is now saying about rudy giuliani. praising him in a new interview but saying he did not direct giuliani to go to ukraine and seek out investigations on his
behalf. not only contradicting what the president said in the past but also what his aides said. in the july transcript of the call that the president ordered to be released, he urges the ukrainian leader not once, twice, but three times, to speak to giuliani. talking about the debunked theory of ukraine interfering in the election instead of russia. the president is now telling bill o'reilly in a new interview, he wasn't the one that told giuliani to do his dealings in ukraine. >> you have to ask that to rudy. i know he was going to go to ukrai ukraine. i think he canceled a trip. rudy has other clients other than me. >> that goes against what the president said in that july phone call with the ukrainian leader, and a les what gordon sondland, the ambassador to the european union, testified, that aides were instructed to work with giuliani. a lot of parallels what the president said about michael
cohen and the hush money payments to stormy daniels. he pleaded ignorance and didn't know where the money came from but why michael cohen made those payments. michael cohen is serving three years in prison and we did learn about the president's involvement in all of that. >> kaitlan, happy thanksgiving. asian markets slid thursday, after the president, president trump, signed the hong kong human rights decency act. siding with pro-democracy activists in hong kong and potentially complicating trade talks. this sanctions chinese officials for cracking down on the protesters. and it confirms that special freedoms are being maintained by beijing. that would be a huge blow to its important international economy. the hong kong government blasted the bill and said it was unnecessary and unwarranted.
chi china's minister of foreign affairs said such plainly bullying behavior is firmly opposed by the chinese government and chinese people. the chinese government calling america a bully. this is going on as they are trying to end a trade war or stop the escalation. terry branstad has been protesting the bill. he's the former governor of iowa. he's aware of how people at home are feeling the effects of the trade war. we'll have a live report from hong kong in the next half hour. days after being fired, richard spencer with pointed words for the president about what it means to be in the military. coming up.

that were the words for richard spencer on president trump. he said it was a reminder that the president has very little understanding of what it means to be in the military, to fight ethically or to be governed by a uniformed set of rules and practices. here was the president's take on those rules and practices at a rally in florida on tuesday. >> i stuck up for three great warriors against the deep state. people can sit there in air conditioned offices and complain. but it doesn't matter to me whatsoever. >> spencer's of sed comes days after he was fired by mark esper. he was ousted for going outside the chain of command and proposing a secret agreement with the white house. anthony davis making history

four u.p.s. employees arrested in a drug smuggling bust in arizona. police say traffickers used the u.p.s. workers to smuggle drugs to other parts of the country. they smuggled drugs in a scheme that dates back a decade. they face money laundering and drug charges. it may be thanksgiving but there was not a lot of goodwill in a couple of nba arenas last night. coy wire has more in this morning's "bleacher report." >> i like all of the graphics around us, making us hungry. i'm sure fans in boston and new orleans will be full of hugs and warm fuzzies. but last night, celtics fans were wicked to kyrie irving. his face was photoshopped into a
cowardly lion poster when the nets showed up. he didn't make the trip because of an injury. as for lakers star, anthony davis, listen to this. >> number 3, anthony davis. they served him a platter of green bean casserole. he sat out last season. he demanded to be traded. but davis gets the last laugh. he sets the record for a player facing his former team for the first time. 41 points. he had the same-sealing deal, as well. new orleans a chance to tie it at the end. the lakers won, 114-110. it would not be thanksgiving day without the overstuffed relatives on the couch. watching the bears beat the lions.
the best match-up, nfc east leading cowboys hosting the buffalo bills. the cowboys are winning. but they haven't beaten a team with a winning record all season. after losing to the team last week, jerry jones was critical of jason garrett. he told me yesterday, he can make a change if he has to. >> i am a jason garrett man. i'm known for that. on the other hand, i want to win the football games just like he and everybody else does. anything that i'm interpreted a a way to do something about it. the remarkable story of nathan ba nathan bain. he made the game-winning shot against duke on tuesday. it gave his school the biggest upset ever.
afterwards, he told the world the win was for his family. back in the bahamas, they lost everything in hurricane dorian. since then, a gofundme started in his name has raised $108,000. people are good. nathan will be on "new day" in the 8:00 eastern hour. tune in to hear his story even more. we're going to end with positive vibes. get your tissues. staff sergeant ivan thomas surprising his son at the 76ers game. he had been deployed in south korea for the past 18 months. he says he wanted to get home in time today because thanksgiving is his son's favorite holiday. he said, christine and abby, he wants to retire from active duty now to spend more time with his
family. we hope that can happen for you. we thank you for your service. >> we really do. it occurred to me, for the folks in afghanistan and iraq campaigns, this is the 19th year we've been at war they've been away for thanksgiving. >> it's incredible. i never goet tired of seeing th homecomings, ever. >> thanks, coy. he came back from a hike. but his wedding ring wasn't on his finger. wait until you hear how he got it back. he's finally here! hey!

a massachusetts man has something extra to be thankful for today. last week, the bold band on his finger fell off. where? while he was hiking snow-covered mt. hancock in new hampshire. he posted a plea to a facebook group of fellow hikers and it worked. >> i had a little bit of hope. if anybody is going to find it, it's some of the crazy hikers. >> he shows up and has a metal detector. >> found the ring. >> no way. >> the band is back on bill's finger. it will probably sit out the next hike. that was good luck for him. "early start" continues right now. this thanksgiving morning, millions waiting and hoping for the macy's parade balloons. will the forecast, although, derail those plans? he said he had no business
ties to ukraine. but a new report shows that rudy giuliani pursued big business there while hunting for dirt on the bidens. a major finding that undercuts the president's conspiracy theory. a watchdog finds zero evidence the fbi tried to spy on the campaign. and a bill signed in front of protesters in hong kong. could it derail trade talks? good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm abby philp. is that bread or butter? i can't remember who is who? i think they're both alive. the balloons are ready. but will they fly? kids love them. but admit it, you do, too. 3 million people on the streets. tens of millions at home, eagerly awaiting them and the floats and the marching bands. did i mention the balloons? they fly only if the weather cooperates.
cnn's miguel marquez is live on the parade route. miguel, it's windy this morning. but how is it look right now? >> it is breezy. it was howling earlier today. it is now just breezy. as long as that wind stays below 23 miles per hour and the gusts stay below 34 miles per hour, the balloons should go. right now, fingers crossed, we're looking okay. tom turkey is lined up, as always. this is the 40th version of snoopy. astronaut snoopy this time, that will be in the parade today. that's one of the big balloons. a spongebob balloon. smokey the bear is back, as well. hopefully all those balloons will go. they will make that call moments before the parade steps off at 9:00 a.m. eastern time. they want to avoid what happened in 1997. a woman was critically injured when one of the balloons blew in an intersection and hit a street
light and brought debris down and almost killed her, she was in a coma for a month. it's not bad behind the buildings. but as you go through intersections, you sometimes get a big gust of wind. last year, i was here. not only extremely cold but also windy. and they had them almost down to the ground. hopefully, they will go this year. right now, it is looking pretty good. happy thanksgiving back to you guys. i have to do my turkey call. you've been doing that silly thing all morning. >> yes, i love that. >> the talents of miguel marquez. i'm always surprised. >> it's amazing. >> his reporting tool kit is excelle excellent. you never know when you need these kind of skills. >> stay warm out there. let's look at the two, huge weather systems that scrambled holiday travel, with downpours, wind and snow. 300,000 businesses and homes were without power on wednesday.
one system, a bomb cyclone, hammering the west with rain on the coast and heavy snow in the mountains. >> a crash to that scene. >> dash cam footage showing a utah trooper leaping for his life when a vehicle crashes into his patrol car. another storm has minneapolis officials declaring a snow emergency. more than a foot has fallen in parts of michigan and wisconsin. and storms rolled through the northeast last night. in louisville, kentucky, winds are so fierce it snapped a radio tower in half. with the forecast, derek van dam. >> happy thanksgiving, abby and christine. our animations describe it best. you have a turkey blowing in the wind in the northeast. a turkey holding an umbrella across the nation's interior. and a shivering turkey in the mountain west. windy conditions along the east
coast. that could impact your traveling plans, along the i-95 corridor. perhaps at the east coast airports, from d.c. to philadelphia and new york, as well as boston. no problems across chicago. look at los angeles, as another storm system moves in. there's the mountain snow. there's the valley rainfall. it could become heavy at times. look at the advisories and warnings in place for much of the country. temperatures will feel very winter-like. you see from chicago to cleveland. milder weather, though, for your holiday across the east coast. back to you. >> thanks for that, derek. protesters in hong kong celebrating in the streets today. a pro-american rally after president trump signed a bill supporting the protest movement. he signed, despite the backlash
from beijing. cnn's will ripley live in hong kong for us. this is one look at the americans bullying the chinese. >> the streets of hong kong will look like one of president trump's campaign rallies. a lot of people praising signing this bill into law. if he didn't sign it, he would have gone against everybody in the house and the senate. it passed unanimously in the senate and almost in the house. after the announcement that the bill was signed into law, he put up that statement, trying to tread carefully with his supposed friend, president xi jingpi jingping. let me break down what the bill does. it authorizes sanctions on chinese and hong kong officials that may be involved in human rights abuses. police officials, the government itself. it requires the state department to review hong kong's special
trade status. one thing that makes hong kong so important to china is it has the special trade status. if that was taken away, it could have consequences for the territory and for the united states, as well. less than a week ago, pro-democracy candidates had a landslide victory in district council elections. this is the second boom for the protest movement in a week. and now, china's foreign ministry, publicly supporting violent criminals. the chinese government summoned the u.s. envoy to china, terry branst branstad, days after they warned him that the u.s. needs to stay out of this situation. we need to watch how beijing and washington's disagreement could affect the sensitive trade negotiations. >> it was the president himself on the phone in a tv interview. he said if it weren't for the trade deal, the chinese would have gone into hong kong and obliterated it in 14 minutes.
that's trumpi iaian hyperbole. wouldn't it have quelled the protest? >> frankly, no. anybody that lives in the city knows that is ridiculous. when the umbrella movement shut down the city for several months, people's liberation army was just a few blocks down the road and they didn't move in that situation, either. a lot of people were saying they would. that's president trump being president trump. there's a lot of gratitude here in hong kong for the president of the united states, for siding with the protest movement, obviously, which infuriates beijing. this is a city that held the election. 90% of the vote went to pro-democracy candidates. highest voter turnout ever. the people on the streets are not mad at the protesters. they're mad at the police and the government. >> will ripley, thanks for that. things going from bad to worse for rudy giuliani. "the new york times" reports the
president's personal attorney privately s lly pursued hundred thousands of dollars in business from ukrainian official at the same time he was trying to dig up dirt on joe and hunter biden. that's contradicts what rudy giuliani said last week. >> i have no financial interest in the ukraine. i'm not going to financially profit from anything in the ukraine. i have no business interests in the ukraine. >> one proposal signed by giuliani involved the ukrainian ministry of justice. another deal had giuliani respecting the investigator w k working with the bidens. more good news for the president on the economy. the third quarter, stronger than we thought. we'll tell you why. it is nice.

the president and his allies have claimed for years that the fbi spied on his 2016 campaign. now, that's being debunked. according to "the new york times," an investigation by the inspector-general found no evidence the fbi tried to put undercover personnel inside the campaign. and president obama did not order a wiretap on mr. trump's phones. inspector general michael horowitz is expected to release his report on december 9th and testify before the senate judiciary committee two days later. a separate probe by former federal prosecutor john durham is also ongoing. he was appointed by the attorney general to conduct a broad review of intelligence in russia -- in the russia probe. the american economy entered the fourth quarter on more solid footing than previously thought. revised gdp estimates showed
that the economy grew by 2.1%. that's just about above the 2% growth rate. if you look at the bar chart, you see the growth has slowed down since the start of the year. manufacturing has been hit hard from the u.s./china trade war. and the positive effects from the 2017 tax cuts have tapered off. consumer spending has kept the economy going. holiday shopping is expected to be strong again this year, before the round of tariffs kicks in next month. analysts have become more concerned that weakness and manufacturing could spill into other sectors and eventually weigh on spending. the trump administration is slashing its contribution to nato. this comes a week before the president attends a summit in london to mark the 70th anniversary of the u.s. transatlantic alliance. the u.s. defense officials tell cnn the payments are now being cut to about 16%, which brings
them in license plane with germ. other members of nato are expected to make up the shortfall. the u.s. was supposed to separate the 26,000 families. there's so many widespread errors in the system the data can't be tracked properly. instead, customs and border protection adopt ad hoc methods to track separations. we'll be right back. after a day of chasing dogs you shouldn't have to chase down payments.

months for someone who is 95 years old. why did he have all of the falls? do they need to tweak his medications? the second thing would be rehab. >> he's so active. he's not in a rocking share, like a typical 95-year-old. >> he has been bouncing back after all of the medical challenges. are we at a point where he has to change his habits? >> i spoke to people who treat people this age all the time. and they were hopeful he could get back, if not to where he was before, then pretty close. they said, don't look at the age. that's just a number. look at what he was able to do before he had these falls. as you noted, abby, he was traveling. he was at habitat for humanity. he was walking and going places. he would use a cane sometimes. it's what people were able to do before the fall that matters. and he was able to do quite a bit.
