health and money that we're going to be talking about over the next 12 months. we're going to open up about things big and small in our lives. and to go along with all that locking ahead, we'll take some time to look back at the lighter moments we were lucky to share here in studio 1a and around the world in 2018. in our next hour, brett eldridge will be here with a special holiday performance. >> we have a lot going on. let's get a look at the top stories from morgan radford. happy new year. >> good morning. thank you so much, hoda. happy new year to everyone, because the country has welcomed in 2019 with fireworks, music and, of course, the optimism that comes with a fresh start. our own matt bradley is live for us in times square, where the countdown crowd had to brace some pretty soggy weather. how is it looking now? >> reporter: good morning, morgan. times square has a hangover this morning. i'm out here. i was here last night and this
7:02 am
place was absolutely packed. there were hundreds of thousands of people, all of them soaked to the bone but absolutely thrilled to be here. and this morning, this place is filled with cops and workers trying to clean up after this party. you see what a huge logistical challenge this was. there's three tons of confetti that was fired from canons all over times square. seven hours later, this place has more or less been cleaned up. this wasn't the only big party in the country, in las vegas -- there were parties all over the place. in las vegas, some 300,000 people who showed up for an eight-minute fireworks display over the vegas strip. back here in times square, it was our own lester holt that got to press the button with journalists that got to drop the
7:03 am
ball. he was honoring journalist work. that's an issue you and i can get behind in 2019. >> happy new year. we're glad you're dry this morning. matt bradley live in times square. in washington, house democrats plan a vote to end the partial government shutout when they take control of the chamber on thursday. the strategy is two different bills. one would fund the department of homeland security without extra money for a border wall. the other would keep agencies running until september. president trump said he's ready to go start negotiations because, he says, we need border security and furloughed government workers are looking to get their paychecks. and singer ricky martin is beginning the new year with a new addition to his family. he announced the arrival of his daughter with an instagram post, showing the baby's tiny hands. the 47-year-old singer writes

7:05 am
we're ready to gaze into our crystal balls and look ahead to the year in politics, the economy, medicine and more. there's never a shortage of headlines coming out of ha washington and 2019 will be no exception. we start with chuck todd and kristen welker. thank you for being here. happy new year. >> happy new year. >> the politics new year, i think we'll be talking about 2020. we'll be talking about the russian investigation and
7:06 am
divided government. jump ball. >> i would say this, they go hand in hand, right? as the mueller probe continues to get closer and closer to the president, as house democrats with their new strengthened majority in the house, decided to hold it more accountable. how active is the 2020 race? do we have the weird moment, where those are running for president say we want to run against a damaged incumbent president. don't spend time holding hearings and investigations. the two are going to be linked in some way, because it's about the future of the president. the real wild card is going to be the state of the economy. a lot of people believe, one year from today, we will be in recession. >> that affects the president's prospects for re-election. 2018 was a busy year for robert mueller. yet, everyone assumes 2019 is the time when the mueller
7:07 am
report, if it comes out, will come out. >> that's right, savannah. it's been escalating in recent weeks. we've seen this president increasingly lash out on twitter, in interviews. and the big question is, what is going to happen. is he ever going to sit for an in-person interview with special counsel? is that going to come to a head? he's submitted written questions to robert mueller. if you look at the number of people who pleaded guilty, in the president's inner circle at one point, about nine point. this is getting closer and closer to him. if you talk to his allies, he is feeling boxed in. will he be able to launch a re-election campaign? and will he be able to legislate? >> you have democrats in 2019, assuming power of one branch of congress. is there division within the democratic party in terms of how aggressively to go after this president?
7:08 am
>> there is. there's a divide among washington and the rest of the party. this is going to be a real challenge for nancy pelosi, if she can get those votes. with all of the evidence they are facing and they don't make an attempt to hold everybody accountable, one of the reasons they wanted power was to hold this president accountable. at the same time, they don't want to be defined by impeachment. and they're well aware -- they saw what happened to the republicans who let themselves be defined in impeachment by bill clinton, it ended up strengthening the hand of the republicans. and i think democrats have no choice but to go down this road. and this question is going to be -- what i'm watching is what is the stomach of the senate republicans? they're the ones that are going to have to make an assessment on this one. when do day fish or cut bait?
7:09 am
>> and it answers a lot on their 2020 prospects. >> i think the economy, has as much to do was anybody. the economy is going well. the economy bailed bill clinton out of his ordeal. what if we're in recession territory? what if the china trade dispute continues to get worse. then suddenly, everything else is going okay excuse doesn't work so well. >> a lot of democrats are looking and saying, maybe this is my year. and next year -- right now, pretty much every democrat is saying that. it's like easier to say who isn't running than who is. perhaps that field will get w winnowed a bit. >> do you like the picks? like former vice president joe biden. and some of the new names that are energizing the base. beto o'rourke.
7:10 am
he spoke with former president obama, for example. i spoke with one top democrat, savannah. the fact that the field is so big only makes us stronger. look at what happened in '92 and 2008. >> chuck and kristen, we'll be seeing you lots. thank you so much. in 2019, and your money. the stock market was all over the place at the end of 2018. should we buckle up for a wild ride. jim cramer is the host of cnbc's "mad money." a lot of people might be biting their nails, looking at their 401(k). tell us what is going to happen with the market. >> we have had a remarkable run for a long time, hoda. as we get closer and closer to what i would describe as being multiple rate hikes, if we're not careful by the federal reserve, you want to be in different things. you're not going to think about the stock market like we have.
7:11 am
you will finally be able to buy a krcd. >> some people call the drops corrections. and you look and say, is that a crash? what do you think we're headed for with all of your expertise? >> it seems like we have minicrashes all the time nowadays. if we don't resolve things with china in a peaceful way and the federal reserve keeps hiking, yes, you'll see 1,000 down, 800 down, 500 up. it's the kind of thing that will make some people nauseous. it could be a nauseating year. >> do you think we should take our money out of the stock market? or should you ride this thing out? >> i think younger people have an opportunity to ride this out. as you get closer to retirement, you have to pull more money out. that's not because of defeat. it's because the opportunities away from the stock market haven't been this great in 12 years. why not go -- no sin in owning a cd? no sin in being a money fund. i'm a stock guy. >> what's the right thing.
7:12 am
if i have money and i want to invest it. where am i putting my money? >> you want to put your money in an index fund. you need the diversification. i think the s&p 500. every broker has one. that's so you can handle the volatility that will be upon us, all year, without a lot of panic. >> someone is thinking about buying a house in 2019. is this a good year to think about that? or do you wait? >> i think you wait a little. people are starting to realize, wow, we're not getting the deductions we used to get. houses are less affordable. interest rates may not be as high later in the year as they are now. >> okay. >> and i think people have to recognize the housing market has been great for a long time. that and the stock market. the party ends. it can't go on. >> you're the optimist, thaoo. >> i used to come here. i want stocks.
7:13 am
facebook, amazon, no. what an opportunity to get a mortgage. no. i like cds. i know -- i can't believe i'm saying this on air, that i like cds. >> but you do. lastly, we saw unemployment was low in 2018. then, we watched gm and all those people saying they're going to lay off a bunch of people. is this going to be a good year for the worker, do you think? or not a great year? >> as the federal reserve raises rates, it will be worse for the worker. big layoffs in retail, unfortunately, always post-christmas. we have that. i don't want anyone to think it will be a recession. that's important. it will be slower. it's been so fast. the world is slowing and we're being impacted. >> all right, jim cramer. >> cds. >> cds all the way. savannah over to you. next up, overseas outlook. we're talking about united states' standing in the world and the state of our relationship with other countries. here with that is chief foreign
7:14 am
affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. happy new year. >> happy new year to you. >> 2018 was consequential on your beat. and the long relationship with allies came under renewed pressure. >> a lot of pressure. he blew up a lot of traditional relationships, he dominated the world stage, president trudonal has infuriated allies from canada, to germany, to the u.k. he's blown up those relationships but cozied up to dictators, vladimir putin, kim jong-un, the summits, unprecedented summits with the totalitarian leaders and embraced the accused murderer of jamal khashoggkhashoggi. >> let's take russia, for example. that relationship. >> that relationship, he's talking about a summit. another summit with vladimir putin. at the same time, he's being
7:15 am
investigated for the russian relations going back to 2016. here he is, talking about having a summit with vladimir putin, another summit with kim jong-un, without anything to show in either case, with north korea not giving any inventory of their weapons. >> i was going to bring up north korea. we saw that high-profile summit between the two leaders, the president famously declared on twitter the nuclear threat is over. i'm paraphrasing. where do we stand? even then, everyone acknowledged, now, it's hammering out the details. >> the good news is, we're not in a nuclear showdown with north korea. but the bad news is that knnort korea has not delivered any of its promises from the summit. they got world recognition for having the summit with the leader of the free world, donald trump, yet, they've not delivered anything to show they arepanding their missile
7:16 am
program and showing secret tunneling without being willing to deliver on their promises. >> we'll watch what north korea does in 2019, as opposed to what it says. let's talk about saudi arabia. the murder of jamal khashoggi, who was the saudi-born columnist and dissident and critic of the saudi crown prince, obviously, that murder really focused attention, not just on saudi arabia's actions, but the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia. and many members of congress, including republicans, say things have to change. >> this is the first issue that has actually tipped republican senators against the president. turned them against him because he is ignoring the advice of his intelligence agencies, as he did on russia, coming into the presidency. he's siding with those in his family, jared kushner, and secretary of state, his national security adviser, making excuses for the crown prince who is actually being fingered for
7:17 am
murdering jamal khashoggi. >> it's important times. andrea, thank you so much. we appreciate your expertise. now, we go over to craig. >> savannah, thank you. when it comes to your health, there's all kinds of new breakthroughs on the horizon in 2019. folks in finance and advances in mental health. to that, we say good morning to our friend, dr. john torres. good to have you. happy new year, my friend. >> good morning. >> let's start with advances in mental health, prioritizing and normalizing with mental health treatment. >> you'll see that in 2019. being an e.r. doc, that's what we have. people come in with lacerations, broken bones, heart attacks. people with mental health issues are pushed back and wait hours or days to be seen. this is filling that need. mental health urgent cares are cropping up across the country.

they're set so people having mental health issues and need to be seen, that day or within a couple days, can get in quickly. they're usually staffed with mental health specialists. >> counseling and prescriptions here. >> counseling, treatment, the things they need to get their mental health needs taken care of and get them taken care of in a quick fashion. >> that sounds like a fantastic idea. what kind of fitness trends are we keeping an eye on? >> hike willing be the new yoga. >> hiking? >> indoor rowing will be the new spin classes. and mobility in fitness, especially for men. >> hiking and rowing, al roker, a huge fan of rowing. >> it will be one of those things, when people do indoor spinning, they get good aerobic exercising. with the rowing, they get the upper body work, as well, because they're pulling on that machine the whole time. with the hiking part, it gives you the benefits of yoga, which is basically relaxation, the
