Good to be with you. We begin in Washington with new developments, less than a week into the new nation, president Joe Biden is set to sign a made in America executive order today, fulfilling a long-time campaign promise. The ceremonial gesture affirming the new administration's official focus on increasing federal spending going directly to American companies. And ABC news has learned the U.S. Will restrict travel by nonu.s. Citizens from south Africa and reimpose limits on travel from more than two dozen countries. It's an effort to clamp down on more contagious variants of covid-19. Dr. Anthony Fauci telling "Gma" today he thinks the new travel plan is a good and prudent idea. Fauci has said the biggest difference between the new administration and the old one is what he calls a refreshing focus on the importance of science. To the next steps expected in the impeachment trial of former president trump. House impeachment managers are expected to deliver a single article of impeachment to the senate later today. The house charging the past president with, quote, incitement to insurrection in the deadly mob attack on the capitol in January. Rough weather across the country. Two dozen states from California to Maryland on alert for snow, flash flooding and thunderstorms. And the snowy pileup in Michigan, just one region affected by the winter storms making their way east. And the oldest qb to pull this off, Tampa bay's Tom Brady, headed to his tenth super bowl showdown in a dream matchup for the NFL. The elder statesman, from formerly the patriots, of course, facing off against the Kansas City chiefs and a young Patrick Mahomes. And, guys, get this. So Tom Brady when he won his first super bowl in 2002, Patrick Mahomes was 6 years old but now these two giants are going head-to-head. It dated all of us. We have been showing the picture all morning long just to rub it in. Did you coin the phrase elder statesman? I heard you use that. I used it this morning. It is a nicer way to say old guy. Oh, come on. Tom Brady, and I are the same age but what he's doing, he is considered to be a grandpa, it is amazing what he is doing, what he is pulling off. And you are a spring chicken. Thank you, erielle. Good to have you.
