we're in subzero range across wyoming into the dakotas as well this will continue to plummet into the midwest on top of snow st. louis by tomorrow afternoon. you're going to feel like you're in the single digits and this will continue to make its way all the way into the northeast. also we're talking about this band of snow going to cause major delays for chicago this morning. >> a lot of problems ahead all right, janessa, thank you. the impeachment inquiry will be coming to life on tv screens this week with the first round of public testimony set to begin. acting u.s. ambassador to ukraine william taylor and assistant secretary of state george kent will tell their stories first. both have already delivered explosive testimony behind closed doors meanwhile, president trump is in new york city this morning to speak at the veterans day parade he is the first sitting president to do so city leaders urging him to keep politics out of the event. nbc's tracie potts joining us from d.c. with the latest. and tracie, republicans are
fighting to get their own set of witnesses up on that stand >> reporter: exactly, phillip. but it's not clear that that's going to happen. the president continues to slam this investigation, saying over the weekend he doesn't even know some of these people who are testifying now the republican party is pushing to get eight more people on the witness list plus anyone who helped the whistle-blower write that complaint they want to hear from the whistle-blower you see those eight witness requests here. and they also want to hear from hunter biden, joe biden's son. he was a central part of this because president trump was pushing ukraine to investigate the company that joe biden was working with hunter biden's business partner also on that list. and democrats and republicans are at odds about whether the bidens are relevant to these hearings >> if you can't call hunter biden and you can't call the whistle-blower, that's sort of a sham that's not even really a trial >> i don't see any relevance with the bidens.
there's no evidence that anything improper has happened >> meantime, a new revelation from the former u.n. ambassador nikki haley. in her memoir she says she was being pushed by then secretary of state rex tillerson and john kelly, then chief of staff, to try to go against president trump. remember at the time there was that "new york times" report from an insider that there were people working on the inside against the president. she said that they tried to recruit her to "save the country" by zrifth the president but he had didn't think that was appropriate. >> the president has since endorsed her book on twitter telling all his followers to go out and read it. all right, tracie, thank you happening this week, the president set to lay out new regulations against vaping the guidelines could set an age limit and also ban certain flavored vaping products this comes as the number of
vaping-related injuries soared to 2,000 with 39 deaths confirmed. here's nbc's hans nichols. >> reporter: the president says they're going to ban some vaping flavors this week. >> we have to take care of our kids most importantly. so we're going to have an age limit of 21 or so. >> reporter: but he's also acknowledging the political power of the vaping industry >> we have a lot of people to look at including jobs, frankly. because you know, it's become a pretty big industry. >> we vote, we vape! >> reporter: pressing their point and their vape pens, ex-smokers converged on the white house in protest >> we vape, we vote! >> reporter: and on twitter they explain how e cigarettes helped them quit their tobacco habit. >> strawberry cheesecake flavor saved my life. >> reporter: now they're circulating data that shows a vaping ban could leave a political burn for the president. more than 4 million vapors live in swing states including almost 900,000 in florida the president won florida in 2016 by little more than 100,000
votes. all this just days after researchers from the cdc discovered a link between 29 mysterious lung injuries including two deaths and a type of vitamin e found in some vaping products. asked about the politics the surgeon general told kate snow his goal is taking away the flavors so fewer young people start. >> it's not my job to think about politics or the political ramifications. my job is to think about public health >> and that was hans nichols reporting. there has been a violent new escalation in the ongoing hong kong protests. police shot and critically wounded a protester. the incident was caught on camera we want to warn you the video is disturbing [ gunshots ] a local hospital told nbc news that the protester underwent surgery but no other information was available. this shooting happened days after a college student died after falling from a parking
