"early today" starts right now. with you this monday morning. i'm frances rivera. os and i'm marlie hall. families a 35 countries are looking for answers after the crash of anpi eth airlines plane. there were no survivors after he flight headed for kenya capital went down shortly after take off in ethiopia. this is the second accident in less than sixonths involving a newer modelf boeing jet which led china to order their airlines to ground these planes. for the latest let's go now to nbc'sane mackie frayer who is in beijing. janice, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, marlie. too little is known right now to determine what caused this crash, but boeing facingome ry hard questions today after six econd crash in just months of this new type of
aircraft, the boeing 737 max 8. in the case of the ethiopian airlines flight, we know that it had trouble shortly after take off. its vertical speed was apparently unstable. the pilot radioed to return, but then communication was lost and the plane cusshed six minutes after take off, killing 157 peop. the u.s. national transportation safety board as well as a team from boeingre part of the investigation, and it's likely to focus on an automated system designed to keep the aircraft from stalling. this was a new feature of the 737 max, but it was one that pilots apparently struggled with. l o at wrned as part of the investigation ie crash of a lion air flight in indonesia lastober. now, it isn't clear whether that anti-stalling system is a factor here, but china is not iting for answers. it has ordered all 737 max aircra to be groun ed here by 6:00 p.m. local time, and that's
significant because of the 3 planes, the 737 max that are in use in the world, about a third of them are here inie china. ma >> janice, thank you. >> well, as you just heard, boeing is facin heightened scrutiny over safety. the second deadly carcherash involving their plane has a lot of people worried. to costello is covering the crash for us. good morning. >> repter: good morning. this is a brand-new state of the art plane but we don't know whether these two crashes are nglated. pier we're talkibout the lion air crash in donesia. investigators believe the on board system fed bad data. sensing a stall, the computer pushed the nose down but may have not known they wer fighting an automated system called mcas that they didn't know about. they should have known how to
disengage the system. so the priority in ethiopia now is to find the plane's black boxes, listen to the cockpit voice recorder and analyze the flight data recorder. are there similarities with the lion air crash, oraybe something else, like an on-board explosion or fire? maybe a problem with an engine or electrical oydulic issue, or even a computer failure. it is a high priority becau the 737 max is one of the best-selling planes in the world right now. 350 and many more on the way. american, southwest and air canada all fly it. so far none of them have reported any problems with the plane, but now every airline in the world hs onh alert. frances? >> reason for concern there. tom, thank you. >> predent trump is launching another salvo in the border battle today making a mti billion dollar request for wall funding. he'll submit his 2020 budget proposal to congress this morning, setting the stage for another shutdown showdown. according to white house officials, the president's proposal will seek nearly $9

importance. we have a crisis down there. i think the president h made that case very effectively. >> reporter: now, we haven already s the statement from democrats. opuck schumer and nancy pelosi, the democrats in congress in a joint statement saying the same thing will repeat itselri t the it again, talking about the president and the wall. we hope he learned his less. >>meantime, the senate expected to reject the president's nional emergency declaration to allow military funds to build thatwall. the president will veto, send it right back to congress where, marlie, they are not expected to have the votes to override that. that senate vote could happen this week. thank you. >> nearly two weeks after the north korea summit collapsed, new concerns this mning that the country will restart its nuclear weapons testing. satellite imagery suggests a rocket launch facilities, once again and after talks fell apart between president trump and north korean leader kim rng-un, tht of us are left wonderingha wt's next. nbc's knely o'd has the
