2:00 am
already put several hundred wisconsin national guard troops on standby. to respond to any potential community unrest that could result from the verdict. we do not know how long the jury is expected to deliberate. let alone what they are going to conclude. just be aware. we could have a verdict in the case as soon as tomorrow. all right. that's going to do it for us for now. we'll see you again tomorrow night. "way too early" is up next. ♪♪ my fellow americans, today i want you to know, we hear you and we see you. >> america let's moving again, and your life is going to change for the better. >> president biden signs the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill into law. now the question is will we see the house pass biden's social spending plan before thanksgiving? plus, jurors in the kyle rittenhouse trial are set to begin deliberations today. in dramatic closing arguments, the defense and prosecution painted very different pictures of the 18-year-old. the question is will we see unrest in kenosha no matter what the verdict is?
2:01 am
and russia facing international condemnation this morning after a missile test forces astronauts on the international space station to take cove? the question is how will the u.s. and other allies respond? it's "way too early" for this. ♪♪ good morning and welcome to "way too early," the show that always thought that space junk was a great name for a garage band. i'm jonathan lemire on this tuesday, november 16th. let's start with the news. the bipartisan infrastructure bill is now officially law. president biden signed the law in a grand ceremony on the white house lawn surrounded by nearly 800 guests. included governors, mayors, local leaders from both sides of the aisle. the president highlighted his accomplishments in his speech. >> i know you're tired of bickering in washington, frustrated by the negativity, and you just want us to use and focus on your needs, your
2:02 am
concerns, and the conversations that are taking place at your kitchen table. the bill i'm about to sign into law is proof that despite the signage, democrats and republicans can come together and deliver results. we can do this. we can deliver real results for real people. let's remember we can come together. most of all, let's remember what we got done for the american people when we do come together. i truly believe that 50 years from now historians are going to look back on this moment and say, that's the moment america began to win the competition of the 21st century. so with confidence, with optimism, faith in each other, let's believe in possible builts, let's believe in one, and let's believe in america. rob port mann said
2:03 am
otherwise. >> these long-term investments are going to help. inflation occurs when demand outstrips supply. ports and freight rate, roads and bridges around other assets will help on the supply side. that's why economists say this bill is counterinflationary, which is so important right now as american families are facing higher prices on everything from gas to groceries. >> the white house couldn't have scripted better words from a republican senator than that. house speaker nancy pelosi is preparing lawmakers for a long week ahead. it's aimed at passing the build back better act. the congressional budget office is preparing the final score for legislation on friday, setting up a vote soon after. speaker pelosi is warning they may need to postpone their break. house democrats will hold the
2:04 am
weekly caucus meeting today where we expect to hear more about this week's timeline. joining us now, nbc news white house correspondent mike memoli. mike, always great to see you. this is undeniably a big day for democrats. walk us through it. we heard the president say how transformative this will be. when will the government, cities, states, and americans start to see tangible results of this legislation? >> well, one thing that's important to remember, jon, is that unlike the recovery act, which then vice president biden helped to oversee, this is not designed to be a stimulus bill it. ooh is a long-term spending bill. so while there will be some benefits that will be more immediately seen than others, especially as it relates to broadband access and replacing lead pipes. they may not be shovel-ready ones but shovel-worthy as the
2:05 am
white house is using. what you saw yesterday was a president and a party that has spent an awful lot of its political capital well trying to begin to get that back, and i thought it was interesting to hear some of the historical sweep in the speeches from speaker pelosi and vice president harris, for instance, going back through history to prepare what the president signed into law yesterday to some of the most landmark infrastructure projects in history, the transcontinental railroad, the international highway system, and then you heard president biden who in his remarks was a little bit more nuts and bolts, and you saw him speak i directly to what the poll numbers, especially those over the weekend show, which is that americans still feel a lot of unease about the state of economy, that a lo of the americans are roughly split, in fact, blame the president for some of the inflationary pressures, and so the president really used this as an opportunity to say, i hear you, i see you, and also to try to
2:06 am
get back to the basics of his campaign and say, this is what happens when government actually works the way it's supposed to and that it will continue to in the future. and now we're going to see -- at least in the near term, a pretty robust effort from the administration to hit the road to try to promote this and turn the mmentum around a little bit. you're going to see the president go to new hampshire. some of his closest advisers yesterday were actually expressing some, let's say, bad memories about new hampshire. i remember quite vividly when the president, then candidate biden, was getting heck out of new hampshire even before the polled were closed ahead of the primary there to try to regroup for south carolina. so it's sort of a similar atmosphere in that they're trying to turn some of that political momentum around, especially as they want to build momentum for the next phase of the president's agenda, which still has to get over the finish line.
2:07 am
>> certainly biden's advisers wouldn't mind a comeback story. as he you mentioned, he had an abysmal, abysmal time there. he also hits michigan tomorrow. mike, you also make a good point about the historical sweep of this. some aides have been critical of the president saying, hey, you've been aiming too big, focus on what the americans need and pivot toward that. let's talk about the build back better act. do you think it can happen in the house before thanksgiving, and then it's going to be up to senator joe manchin and a few others whether it goes up any time soon. >> this was the other interesting dynamic from yesterday's ceremony on the south lawn, a very cold, brisk afternoon, but there were some from the crowd like senator rob
2:08 am
portman who gave a speech on inflation. he also made the point of saying he double agree with the president on every part of his agenda, which rankled a few of the democrats in the crowd, but you heard speaker pelosi as well as leader schumer emphasizing as well as vice president harris that this is just step one, and there was enthusiastic cheering from most of the democrats in the crowd, some of those watching joe manchin, noting that he was not applauding as theirly at the moment. so obviously the cbo score is the big thing ahead, and the white house does feel like they're on the right track. >> it does seem like we're days from the manchin camp. nbc's mike memoli. thank you, buddy. we'll see you again soon. meanwhile the fate of kyle rittenhouse is in the hands of the jurors. they're getting ready for deliberations after the case wrapped up yesterday. nbc news national correspondent
2:09 am
gabe gutierrez has all the details. >> he's guilty of all counts. >> reporter: kyle rittenhouse's fate is about to be in the hands of the jury as closing gumts wraps up. >> he showed no remorse for the victims, never tried to heavy anybody that he hurt. >> reporter: the prosecutor playing the shooting frame by frame, arguing that rittenhouse shot and killed two men and wounding a third because he was a wanna be soldier. >> you cannot create self-defense with a danger you create. >> reporter: he focused on joseph rosenbaum, the first man he shot. >> he was causing trouble. he was a rioter, and my client had to deal with him that night alone. >> reporter: rittenhouse's attorney insisting rittenhouse was not an active shooter and
2:10 am
there was a rush to judgment. >> kyle was a 17-year-old kid out there trying to help this community. >> reporter: the judge dismissed the sixth count against rittenhouse, illegal possession of a weapon by a minor, arguing the ar-15 was not a short-barrel, so the wisconsin law does not apply. henao faces five felony counts including intentional homicide. the shooting survivor, grosskreutz, says rittenhouse brought this on himself. >> he didn't do anything medically for anybody. >> when you hear your son referred to as a vigilante, what you do make of that? >> it angers me. >> reporter: wendy rittenhouse said she did not drive her son to kenosha that night, but she has no doubt he acted in self-defense. >> was your son looking for trouble? >> no. kyle never looks for trouble. he is a caring young man, and he
2:11 am
likes to help people. >> as a mother, do you want him to go down there with an ar-15 rifle? >> i don't want him going anywhere near kenosha, whatsoever. >> the dismissal of that weapons charge certainly raised a lot of eyebrow. our thanks to gabe gutierrez. still ahead, what we learned from president biden's virtual summit with president xi jinping. plus congresswoman liz cheney receives blowback over president trump and we'll speak with representative debbie dingell who was present at the bill signing yesterday. we'll be back with that and so much more. so much more.

the white house says president biden underscored the importance of, quote, substantive and concrete conversations with chinese
2:15 am
president xi jinping in a virtual summit between two leaders yesterday. the pair spoke for more than three hours, the white house noted. they discussed a wide range of issues including climate change, human rights, and competition between the two superpowers. xi was cordial with president biden saying, quote, i'm very happy to see my old friend. biden reflected on the longstanding relationship between the two leaders. >> we've always communicated with one another very honestly and very candidly, and it's -- we never walk away wondering what the other man is thinking. >> we believe -- you and i talked about this -- all countries have to play by the same rules of the road. that's why the united states is always going stand up for our interests and values and those of our allies and partners. >> our responsibility as leaders a of china and the united states
2:16 am
is to ensure competition between the two countries does not appear in con flick, whether intended or unintended. >> although the chinese foreign ministry called the meeting productive, they did not see eye to eye. xi warned president biden that it was like playing with fire and those who play with fire will get burned. the white house will have an in-person meeting between the two leaders sometime next year. the republicans of oklahoma will no longer recognize liz cheney as a member of their party. it's the second time they've taken action against cheney over her criticism against former president trump. the latest move is largely symbolic and doesn't strip cheney of any tangible power. in a text message to the "associated press," a spokesperson for the congresswoman called it, quote,
2:17 am
laughable for anyone to suggest cheney isn't a conservative republican. the u.s. is condemning russia this morning for conducting an anti-missile test. it forced the astronauts to take cover. antony blinken described the missile strike as reckless. there are currently seven crew members on board the international space station, four americans, a german, and two russians. still ahead, a little "monday night football," plus phil mickelson helps eli manning work on his golf game. sports is next. on his golf gam. sports is next our a1c with once-weekly ozempic® can help you get back in it. oh, oh, oh, ozempic®! my zone... lowering my a1c, cv risk,

where apparently if you come on this show if you're an active football player, the next week you lose the game, and i -- can you kind of do us a favor and tell people there's no such thing as a curse, that that's not a real thing? >> no, i believe that it is a thing, and that's why i'm not playing next week. i didn't know if it would carry over into golf or not. >> all right, phil. we've been analyzing football. your chance to analyze eli's swing. tell us about it. >> let's see. overall, one word to describe it, it's cute. it's a cute little swing. it's behind and back. his arms aren't in front of him. they get a little too flat. so he has to use all of his athleticism to square the face. it's a pretty good golf swing. like i say, it's cute, but it could be better. >> i don't think eli manning is

2:40 am
sales have resolved over the month of october. and it's earnings season. a number of reports. kicking off with walmart later today. and two main things that investors are going to be watching from these results, number one, how these companies are managing supply chain issues, and, number two, how they're managing pressure. a lot of things to come our way in terms of consumer space in the next 24 hours and in the coming days. >> so demand for air travel appears to be on the rise ahead of the holidays. a lot of people stayed home. this week, seemingly vaccinated, wanting to get out and see friends and family. but demands are up, and so are the costed. how much should americans be expecting to pay for ticket prices for travel this winter? >> well, jonathan, what a difference a year makesst last year it seems like we would never speak about returning to the airways, and now airlines are scrambling to hire enough staff to with able to meet this
2:41 am
rise in demand. so airlines are facing cost pressure as they try to lee hire workers across various roles, and on the other hand, they're facing jets fuel prices at their most expensive since 2014. so putting it all together, a personals should be bracing for potentially higher fares in the weeks and months ahead. and one of the things people should debate, whether to drive or fly, it's not easy. the price at the pump is expensive as well. either way, it's going to be a costly season as we heds into the holidays. >> it's hard to see as you drive down the street in the u.s. one more. amazon reached a settlement with the attorney general from california over covid cases from warehouse workers. what's the template and what could it establish? >> california's attorney general said throughout the pan delic amazon inadequately notified
