>> and i suppose if it happened once when there was a question about an incident with a reporter, you know, that happens. so i think -- i mean, i see what you see. you know, he reached out to him. but isn't the more essential question why is he putting himself in the thick of protests? i'm not sure i know the answer. but it seems that going on, yeah, protests now are a part of the trump rally, perhaps there's another way to deal with it. and let me say that we know this isn't going away. tomorrow in washington, d.c., trump appears here, and there's already protests planned. >> yeah, let's broaden this a bit more. not just lewindowski's position in the crowd, but we know this is possibly an atypical role for a campaign manager. how does he -- compare and contrast his role with trump to
other campaign managers. i'd expected it would be a different relationship. >> well, everything about the trump campaign has been asymmetric. so if you have a campaign manager who plunges into a crowd, even though you know everyone has a camera and that you might be confronted with or run into a protester, that's untraditional. but as i say, you can't argue with success. if the goal of the trump campaign is to be nominated, he is very close to being nominated right now. but it is the common sense, though, of anyone, why would you go look for trouble? one other quick thing about how the trump campaign is so untraditional, when he has a press conference in washington tomorrow, it's at the trump hotel. and they say in their press release that they will be giving tours of the hotel at the press conference. >> yeah, we've seen the press conferences on voting nights on
these super tuesdays touring essentially the trump properties across southern florida. let me say you to this piece that's in "the new york times" this weekend. republican leaders map a strategy to derail donald trump. leaders apparently going to launch this 100-day campaign starting with the first contest in april in wisconsin. big spending brought by the club for growth. $2 million reportedly pledged, an effort to woo delegates individually moving forward. i mean, this seems to play into trump's narrative and the way they see it as he's the outsid r er and the party bosses are trying to thwart the will of the people. is this an effective strategy to stop donald trump? >> so far it hasn't been. the call for growth and other ally organizations putting a few million in florida just a few days ago in commercials to try and stop him. one of the operatives i've talked to involved in that movement thinks it needs more time to be repetitive. as you know, as they go along,
they have to change the strategy from just defeating him to now preventing him from going to the convention in cleveland with enough delegates to clinch the nomination. >> let me ask you about john kasich who's making some news this morning. this interview with john dickerson of "face the nation" on cbs is going to air a little later. but they've released a bit of the conversation in which they discuss merhemerrick garland to replace justice skrcalia on the supreme court. listen to this and then we'll talk about it. >> frankly, they ought to all sit down and meet with the guy. >> would you take a look at mr. garland if you were elected president? >> well, you know, he received overwhelming support. i think even from senator hatch. so of course we'd think about it. >> of course they'd think about it. not only is john kasich saying that republicans in the senate should meet with him, which many have said they will not, he considers possibly nominating or at least he's saying that he will consider nominating judge garland.
this clearly is counter to what the republicans in the senate are trying to hold the line i guess is broken now. >> well, it is. it is defies, i think, common sense to most people in america, i'm guessing, not from a poll, that if the president still has almost a year left, why not at least consider his nominee? so i think john kasich, that's part of what he's trying to do is just to appeal to that -- he's trying to make the appeal based on letting people -- letting not being inflammatory where senate leader mcconnell, i think, made a mistake, was dismissing out of hand hours after justice scalia died that no matter who president obama sent, the senators wouldn't even consider. you know, mcconnell won't take a meeting. so when john kasich said that about merrick garland, it is newsworthy because he is distancing himself from the senate leaders. >> quickly, though -- >> senate republican leaders, yes. >> quickly, is this enough to
penetrate that facade, or is he just the outlier? >> too soon to say. by the way, i grew up just blocks away from him, he has a very moderate record. you know, he was nominated obviously by a democratic president. republicans may think if they may not get someone as moderate on a second pick if hillary clinton were president. >> all right. lynn sweet with "the chicago chief there, lynn, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you so much. >> sure. and don't miss a cnn presidential primetime event, the democratic and republican candidates all making their cases to the voters on the same night right here on cnn. the final five candidates tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. eastern. and be sure to watch special election coverage of the vote in idaho, arizona and utah all day on tuesday only on cnn as well. the paris terror suspect

14 minutes past the hour. today the paris terror suspect is in a prison in belgium spp he. he's been charged and fighting extradition to paris, so it might be up to three months before that extradition actually happened. >> abdeslam has told authorities that he planned to blow himself up at the stad de france but then backed down. cnn senior international correspondent fred pleitgen is live from mollenbeck, belgium. abdeslam is fighting extradition. having a little problem with the shot there. how will that help his case, or will that have some influence here? >> reporter: well, it's not clear whether or not it will help his case. i mean, one of the things that he's truly trying to or not it will help his case. one thing he's trying to do is trying to delay the extradition.
>> yeah that was my hope we wouldn't have that problem. i saw a couple flashes there. >> we'll try to get back to fred in a moment. let's go to tom fuentes. >> tom is with us. thank you so much. i'm wondering if he is talking abdeslam which may be a surprise to a lot of people. but if he's talking, how to interrogators continue to get him to open up to them and give them the information they are really looking for? >> well christi often this these kind of cases the individual wills talk because of their extreme huge e goes and narcissism. they want to be able to take credit for how great they were, the leadership skills t organizational skills and that type of thing. it is obvious possible to get them to talk. >> that doesn't seem like the situation in this case though. in terms of having an ego.
it seems like this man abdeslam, he just wanted to stay alive. >> well that is part of it. he's too important to the cause. he can't kill himself. they need him. so that is part of it. >> well he admits he basically -- the call to blow himself up in the name of isis and what they stand for. given the charges and back to this extradition here. given the charges against him, is there any question that he'll be expedited even though he's fighting it? >> no question, and fighting it will be feudal. >> in europe, the european union countries have an arrest warrant and what that means is a judge issuing a warrant in one country will be carried out by any judge or jurisdiction in the eu. so in this case. any patriarperwork by france wi carried out by belgium.
not just his extradition but other documents and evidence will also be sent to france. it is pretty much a feudal effort and it is not going to delay it very long. >> tom thank you so much. grab some water. i apologize. that never fails. >> standby for just a moment. we're going bring back fred. you were talking about abdeslam's effort to delay here and quite possibly will not be successful. >> yeah. probably won't be successful. on the one hand of course he's trying to delay his extradition. of course he is aware and his lawyer is also very much aware that at this stage of the game, this early on, of course he is also setting the stage for that trial. as to the sentence he'll possibly get. so what we are hearing is that he is indeed cooperating with the authorities.
apparently he was questioned twice yesterday by the authorities and it was interesting. on the one hand he of course told them that yes he was supposed to blow himself up at the stadium in france. the authorities say they are not sure whether they would believe that because they were getting very different messaging from isis. after isis claimed responsibility for the attack and also he then later was spotted somewhere completely different in paris. so they are not sure whether or not they should believe him on that. but on the one hand they say yes he is cooperating with us. yes he is talking to us. on the other hand the belgian politician said they are now certain he played a central role in planning the paris attacks. so therefore y while he might be trying to help his case on the one hand, they are certain he played a central role. >> fred, thank you so much. and thanks to tom fuentes as well. still to come, live pictures here from vatican city.

divisive, bigoted and xenophobic comments of people like donald trump. >> hillary clinton is taking a break from the campaign trail. >> she doesn't have anything scheduled until tomorrow. instead bill clinton is holding several campaign events in arizona. joining us to talk about the democratic primary, maria cardo cardona, hillary clinton and -- a bernie sanders supporter. we're seeing senator sanders from the u.s./mexico border heading up to washington state. is hillary so confident that she doesn't have to rally over the
weekend? >> no i don't think so. she's said from the beginning she's not taking anything from granted. that she's going to continue to work for every vote. and even if she's not out of the 2 campaign trail, her surrogates are. as you mentioned earlier, bill clinton is going to be campaigning for her. and she has people on the ground that are focusing to getting to voters. and she is spending money and resources as is senator sanders with ads. and so i think she is focused on getting her message out. she has said from the beginning that she is going to be working for this. and that is the important thing here. senator sanders is running a terrific campaign and he's going to continue to do that. but she's ahead in pledged delegates. so she's going to continue focus on making sure she's working hard to get the nomination. >> -- delegate count here. what sanders said about the fight for delegates. >> lot of very large states.
we think we have states that are more progressive. some of the states we have seen. and we're feeling optimistic that we can pick up a whole lot of delegates. >> senator sanders was very confident going into tuesday's contest. especially confident about ohio. he lost that by a 13 or 14 points. where will he win on tuesday? >> i thinks we all know the south was the beginning. we talked this a lot. but moving forward we know washington, idaho, the western states are favorable. we have big states like california and new york that are coming and he's doing very well in a lot of these states. and don't forget it is all about. we have a reflective democracy on our side. with proportional representation. but think about it. in a race that was designed for hillary clinton where she had half the super delegates last year. the media, the money. relations in every state for over not just three years, but
eight years. think about it. >> but you can't just keep up. he's got to surpass her if he wants the nomination. let me tell you one other thing you said i want your reaction to. as he goes for this delegate hunt there are many who want to preserve and protect the legacy of president obama. but in the gaggle there, the discussion with reporters, he said he would end the deporti deportation regime and when asked if president obama was part of that regime he said yes. this is an electorate who wants to preserve and protect the obama legacy. does that hurt him in. >> i don't think it hurts him. i think many latinos around the country have been deeply hurt by this deportation of president obama. and i'm a huge supporter of president obama. but it is unfortunate due to the
rhetoric and we're seeing it today with the election going on right now. the rhetoric on both sides. i think the president has had to make some very tough decisions. but the reality is that we do not have an undocumented illegal immigration problem at the border. i'm from arizona. we have a negative influx of illegal immigrants coming from over the border right now. this is not an issue anymore. this is something where we as democrats have to come together and solve the problem of the people who are living in the shadows of democracy right now. we need comprehensive immigration reform and that is something that bernie sanders has a very strong position. >> he's not there alone. maria let me bring you in here too. two weeks ago, a little more than two weeks ago, hillary clinton pledged she would not deport any illegal immigrants except violent criminals and terrorists. this is a break from president obama's approach. this is one of the few areas on the few issues which secretary
clinton is to the left of the president. >> it is not that much of a break from president obama. because that is exactly what president obama's executive action would want to accomplish right now we see that it is stuck in the courts but president obama has been very clear that that's exactly what he wants to do. he wants to protect those who have been here in the country without a criminal record, who have had roots in this country and have contributed to the beautiful mosaic that is our diverse nation for many many years. and secretary clinton and frankly senator sanders want to continue that. there is really no difference between the three in terms of what they want to do on immigration. and i agree with nomiki for democrats that is a winning position and that is exactly what -- >> -- difference in theory but there was some difference in practice. you think that is what the president wants to do. but if you look over his record there may be a difference.
i'm getting we got to go. maria, nomiki, we'll do this again next weekend. >> thank you. >> have a good morning. still to come, it's been the forbidden fruit in the to be ko world. tobaccobacco world. tobacco , real chicken is always #1. no corn, wheat or soy. support your active dog's whole body health with purina one.

>> i am pro israel. i was the -- i was the grand martial of the israeli day parade. i have tremendous love for israel. i happen to have a son-in-law and a daughter that are jewish, okay? and two grandchildren that are jewish. >> and while trump is getting his speech ready, others are planning a protest. rabbi, thank you for being was. i understand you have gathered about 300 rabbis and other jewish leaders. does everyone plan to back out when his speech begins. >> it was 300 on tuesday. now it is up to 16 hundred. rabbi, members of the community and friends. and they are really three different things. some people are just going to choose to absent themselves from his speech altogether. other resume going to be in the room while he's introduced and
as soon as he takes the stage silently and politely stand up and walk out. and then we're all going to gather outside of the hall and learn some sacred text about common decency and about senseless hatred so we can counter the message we think he's offering. >> this is the thing. donald trump is known to call out protesters at his rallies. make a scene perhaps. what kind of reaction are you hoping to see from him? >> i'm hoping that he accepts our protest and does not engage us honestly. if he wants to engage in a respectful dialogue, i would be the first to sit down with him. but we are going to be very polite. we are all members of aipac, the last thing we want to do is disrupt the conference. we just want to make sure our voices are heard as well. >> i was just going to say you would sit down with him if he was willing.
what would you want to say to him if you could do that? >> well first let me say i'm a little man on the totem pole. he's not going to sit down with me. and there are many people can including the reform move that have reached out to him. and i want to say mr. trump, you are in a position of tremendous power and with power comes responsibility and the rhetoric yao use and the choices you make, and the violence you incite, the language you choose to use, it matters. words matter. in jewish tradition we know that. the people of the book. think about the language he uses. our protest is not about his policies or politics. it is about the hateful speech that's become a cornerstone of his campaign. >> there are comments that are an example of ire of -- let's take listen. >> i think if we are going to ever negotiate a peace settlement i think it would be much more helpful if i'm a gloeshter if i go in.
i'll say i'm pro israel and i've told that to anybody who would listen. but i would like at least the other side to think i'm somewhat neutral as to them so that we can maybe get a deal done. >> what was your reaction to that? >> well i think you are going to find jus who don't like that answer and some jews who do like the answer. some want an even playing field and others want a strong support for israel. at the end of the come together against hate campaign is not about politics. it is about his rhetoric. about us gathering together and accepting a diverse menu of political opinions but requiring all of those political opinions and perspectives be shared in dignified and respectful ways. that is what we expect from all of our presidential candidates. >> 1600 rabbis. >> not all rabbis.
sitting american president to visit the country since 1928. i think that was calvin coolage. his wife, daughter and mother-in-law will travel with him. first visit to the havana cathedral to meet the archbishop involved in the normalization of relations between the two countries and there have been or may soon be increased demand for cuban cigars as the u.s. reopens relations. but the cuban tobacco try may not be ready to meet the demand? >> we head to cuba to talk money and tobacco. >> so what are your thoughts about maybe the end of the embargo with america? >> [ bleep ]. >> but the demand will skyrocket. if americans can suddenly buy your cigars, can you think you can keep up?
would you have to stop growing other crops? >> -- >> but imagine if the government got out of the way entirely. imagine the high end tourists that would flock to this place to taste his wares the way wine lovers. >> you should have americans come and taste your tobacco and have a little restaurant right there. >> --. >> joining us now from new york. the man with one of the best jobs in television. >> one of? the best job.
>> thank you so much for getting up early: >> of course. >> talk about the fact how commercial fights to cuba are expected to resume this year. did you get the sense that cuba is ready for an influx of american tourists? >> well they are ready. in attitude and open heartedness and curiosity. but just the pure physical state of the island, that's what really set me back. havana is so broken. they have to ration water. the infrastructure, the plumbing under the old city is so leaky. and in the countryside, 80% of americans live very rural lives. eat what they grow. and that farmer said sure, bring them on. but while he may have the soil and the rain and the sunshine to grow that leaf, they don't have the shipping infrastructure, the trucking, the manufacturing facilities. so what is so interesting. is this forbidden island, a
maybe we barely know is just trying to figure out what is possible. two million visitors a year now. florida gets a hundred million. and they are about the same size geographically. so no other place on the planet is on the cusp of such seismic change. so we wanted to check out out. >> you mention the curiosity of the cuban people. there a tinge of suspicion as well? because cuba's leaders have a history of vilifying american leaders. you also mention open hearts. are they ready to trust americans, trust american leaders. i'm sure every person who goes says, you know, there is a merritt co marriott coming a share buctarb coming. >> it's interesting, the anticipation of the embargo coming down is tinged with this
attitude that we hope our soul isn't sold in this process. and they really are proud of how their communities have had to band together and really the hardships since the revolution. and they don't want to become the next cancun with a bunch of american strip mall type franchises popping up. but what's interesting is maybe after the regime says they will also demand 51% cuban ownership. so are you going to give majority ownership to a communist regime that really can't even keep the water running in havana? so these are questions that are going to delay what's going on. it may take longer than we think. >> bill weir, we are looking forward to seeing this tonight. thank you so much. >> and do not miss cigars, big money, and cuba tonight on a
brand new season of "the wonder list." that's at 10:00 eastern only on cnn. >> at the top of the hour, violence erupting in a trump rally in arizona. one of his campaign managers under fire this morning this video appears to show him grabbing a rallier by the collarer. let's check it out. do any of you have kids? i do yes. this car has a feature built in calleen driver technology, which lets parent's see how their teens are driving. oh, that's smart. it even mutes the radio until the seat belt is fastened. will it keep track of how many boys get it in the car?

this month. intere from a reporterer who claims he tried to grab her a when she tried to ask a question. >> not the only incident that happened at this trump rally. you see that. another protesters was sucker punched and kicked by a man attending the rally. trump says he did not condone violence but did label the protester as an at a timers. >> set to vote on tuesday. stakes especially high in winner-take-all arizona. >> good morning. yeah this is another troubling incident for the trump campaign. as you saw in the video it appears that trump's campaign
manager cory luns douseky was involved in a altercation with a rallier yesterday in arizona. the video appears to show luns douseky touching the protester by the collar of his shirt and pulling him behind. i want to read the statement trump spokesman gave to cnn yesterday. here is what she said. she said cory lulewandowski was speaking with a protesters when the individual he was speaking with was pulled from behind by the man to the protesters left. the video clearly shows the man reacting to the person who pulled him. not to mr. luns dousekewandowsk.
all of this is trouble in the bigger context as you mentioned being that lewandowski is under investigation for another incident involving a reporter where he is accused of having grabbed her by the arm. this is a former bright bart reporter who has pressed charges and all of this is troubling also because there's been increased violence with protesters and reporters clashing with increasing frequency and trump has had to address these issues over and over again. >> thank you so much. and you can catch her on inside politics with john king this morning. show starts at 8:00 a.m. eastern. let's bring in former reagan white house political director and donald trump supporter

do you believe he also pulled that man by the collar though? >> no. it did not appear to me. the other guy was being yanked forcefully and he reacted to him. he didn't turn to cory. he turned to the other guy and went after him. >> people at home see the video. why is cory even in the crowd. he's a campaign manager. shouldn't he be backstage with the candidate? why is he down there? >> good question. i don't know the answer to it. after i watched this a number of times, at least twenty times here this morning to try and get a fix on it. just out of curiosity i went on the youtube and punched in, or typed in the search phrase "rahm
emanuel pushes" and what i came up with in less than a minute is rahm emanuel, mayor of chicago being videotaped by a constituent shoving the constituent. he's a prominent ally of hillary clinton. are we having a media narrative here that hillary clinton's campaign is violent that she hangs around with bullies, etc. >> rahm emanuel. there are charges pressed against cory lewandowski. so there is a narrative here that is supported by police reporting. >> the narrative with all due respect to michelle, whom i like and respect, i frankly did not see her pushed to the ground. she said she was pushed to the ground. i did not see that in that video that was presented. >> there is an investigation there. and that will continue. we don't have much time together. but i want to get to what i'm sure you read in "new york times" this weekend.
the effort, the republican leaders map a strategy to derail donald trump. gop leaders reported launching a hundred day campaign starting in wisconsin and the first week of april going delegate by delegate, bending to try and take down trump as they did in states leading up to wisconsin. what is your take on the strategy here? >> well, you know, look they are welcome. this is a free country. they are welcome to do anything they want within the bounds of the electoral system. that is perfectly fine. what it says to me politically is they have lost touch with the base of the republican party. the base of the republican party, 80% of them at least are turning out for donald trump and ted cruz who are the two leading anti-establishment candidates in this race. and what they are trying to do is replace either of them with john kasich. >> let me ask a question -- and we're going to get to that.
but let me ask how you gauge trump's ability to govern moving forward, if he gets the nomination. >> sure. >> we've read in the times that mitch mcconnell has reportedly given senators permission to not only not run with trump at part of their platform, but to run away from him, to run negatived as. how will -- negative ads. >> how will he be able to govern himself? >> we'll he's built an enormous business association with the ability to get along with people. i'm not going to give any names but i know the process is on going with very prominent conservatives. i think this process is already begun. >> we also in this "new york times" report from c-- they als
mentioned if this campaign is unsuccessful, there has been discussion of running a third party conservative. bill crystal has suggested former oklahoma senator coburn and rick perry essentially as these candidates. what do you think of the twoalitw alternatives. >> senator coburn said no i believe. left the senate because of the cancer -- >> but these are the only two names being floated right now. >> bill crystal, whom i know and respect greatly, i just think he's wrong here. and this really does speak to the insider establishment thing that they really don't care what people out here in the middle of pennsylvania think. they are going to force some candidate that people haven't voted for down their throats. i think that is a huge mistake.
>> let me get your reaction of john kasich. he had a conversation that will air later today. here is what he said about merrick garland. >> frankly they all augment to sit down and meet with the guy. >> would you take a look if you were elected president? >> well he received overwhelming support from senator hatch, so of course we'd think about it. >> most senate republicans have been in lock step. but they won't consider him. will not meet with him. not only john kasich says they should meet with him but he would think about potentially nominating him if he becomes president. >> i've been involved in five of these fights with ronald reagan. five supreme court nominations. and this is a huge issue. and right there i think is a
mistake on the part of governor kasich. i don't think he has a path to the nomination anyway. but exactly what he said right there will prove to be a real blocking point for him. because again, republicans want a conservative on that court. they want to wait until the new president is elected and to hear john kasich say, well yeah, he put up an obama nominee. that is not going to fly. >> trump supporter, jeffrey lord. thank you. tomorrow night 8:00 p.m. eastern. and be sure to watch special election coverage of the votes in idaho and arizona and utah all day tuesday live here on cnn. the captured terror suspect

but the president of france has said it is going to happen. the belgian officials have said it is going to happen. it is going to happen and probably in less than three monthsali months. but the paris prosecutor is also throwing something else in. not so fast abdeslam. what you are telling us we can't take that at face value. why has he said that? because isis itself said there was going to be an attack in the 18th district of paris but right after abdeslam -- [inaudible] -- blew themselves up. he then appears in that 18th district. so the prosecutor is saying, whoa your story doesn't add up so far. this is why the french want to get ahold of him. also because he's such a big figure in planning the attacks. this is what the paris prosecutor said. >> because he is such a big figure in the attack. what do we know about the others in the apartment with him when he was detained?
>> there were three others that were family member, that were essentially hiding him. one has been released and two more remain in detention and face questioning. another man was there with him, he is now being questioned by the belgian authorities. he also faces charges. it is not clear how central his role may have been to the paris attacks. but we do know there were two other people that are on the run. one was spotted with abdeslam when he was on his way to belgium. and another planner with him when he went to pick up some of the attackers in eastern europe to bring them to belgium. the french prosecutor described in detail just how central abdeslam is in to the planning
of all this. this is how he explained it. >> abdeslam is a key actor in the paris and sand knint-denis attacks. he seems he had a central role in building the commando teams for the logistical preparations of the attacks and himself being present in paris on the 13th of november. >> reporter: of course this is why the french want to get ahold of him. he knows so much. was such a central figure involved in buying some of the chemicals and devices used to make the suicide vests. so if you will, he can expect to face very tough questioning. >> is there any indication he was still in communication and working with isis in the four months since the attack? >> reporter: the picture that is beginning to emerge as the
prosecutors divulge more information here is that isis has really been very cautious and careful. cell phones are wiped and activated very nearly before the attacks. so a lot of e tdetails are i merging. it a that information is limited but he appears and isis i peer to be using very sophisticated techniques to avoid detection. >> okay. thank you so much. ? just a few hours president obama

new this morning. coming up in just a few hours. president pam will be heading to havana. first time since 1928. and the country is already to mark his historic visit. president obama also appeared on a show. [speaking foreign language] >> give i us a couple of the highlights for the president's schedule today. >> as soon as he steps off the
plane he is going to make history. first sitting president to arrive in cuba. before he goes he'll have the chance to address the cuban people live. something that no u.s. president has ever had the chance to do. and as well chance to express some criticism like he's done before towards the cuban governments policies. and we had the opportunities yesterday to talk to cuba's top negotiator with the u.s. about this historic visit. >> and what does he say about that? >> i thought we were going to
use that interview but what she -- >> i think there is respect. undoubtedly there is respect. you saw that and i saw that during the summit of the americas in panama. how president castro addressed to president obama. recognizing that have president jimmy carter he has been the only one in our past history who had designed it to begin a process towards normgss relations with cuba. >> all across havana i can tell you people are excited. and talking to cubans that i've met in the -- most people are born after the cuban revolution. they have only known --. many people although we've known about this for weeks said they
simply won't believe it until today when they see president obama arrive. >> a healthy amount of curiosity there. apologize for the glitch from the control room. thank you so much. thank you so much professor for being with us. you watched this whole thing unfold. what do you think this will do to u.s./cuba relations in terms of how quickly or gradually this will open things up? >> well the purpose of the president's trip is to energize the process of normalizing relations with cuba that he began back in december 2014. he has about 10 months left in office. and i think he wants to make the most of it. he wants to push this policy as fast forward as he can so that the next president will see the
wisdom of staying with the same policy. >> and do you believe this will be a lasting policy? >> i do think so. there are a lot of good reasons that the united states has finally moved towards a normalization of relations with cuba. first and foremost that the old policy really wasn't working. we see enormous support among the american people for the president's policy. a lot of businesses are anxious to get there. a lot of americans want to travel there. so there are a lot of good reasons i think to keep on the track that the president has laid out. >> you talk about the businesses -- struck a deal to help manage hotels in cuba. we heard earlier cuba still wants 51% ownership stake of any business there. how do you visualize that progressing? >> actually the new foreign investment law passed about 18
months ago allows in some cases for full foreign ownership. it is a matter of a negotiation between the foreign firm and the cuban government. so it may be possible. i don't know specifically about the starwood cases. but i it may be possible for foreign investors to go in and have complete control. >> you heard patrick talk about how excited people in cuba are to see this unfolding but what do you think is the expectation on their part? we hear from bill weir that how havana specifically they have such water issues. and they are still living so many years behind the u.s. do you anticipate that the people there are expecting the u.s. to help them i guess get into the future, move into the future? >> i was in cuba on december 17th 2014 when the two presidents made their announcement. and i can tell you the ordinary
cubans were absolutely jubilant. there is expectation that with a normal relation with the united states, the u.s. economic embargo will be lifted and people's lives will become easier and better. i think the cuban government is a little more realistic how long it is going to take to get to fully normal relations. >> how open is the cuban government professor to normalizing things or at least to progressing much of what is in havana and in the outlying areas to mirror more of what we see here in america in terms of the way people live on a day to kay basis? >> there is no doubt the cuban government is very much in favor of trying to forge a more normal economic relationship with the united states. interested in attracting u tourist, investment, and trade with the united states. because they see their economic future inevitably is going to be tied to their neighbor to the
north. >> but the people living there day-to-day will see some of that economic prosperity, not just that prosperity being held by the government. >> i think absolutely. when an american travels to cuba, they eat in a private restaurant. they may stay in a private home. there is a lot of advantages to ordinary people. for a better bilateral economic relationship. >> professor, thank you so much. up next as north korea threatens to test a nuclear war head. cnn takes you on board a aircraft carrier where the u.s. and south korea are holding joint military exercises. >> and donald trump's relationship with the fox news anger is flaring up again or his words about her. more details straight ahead.

this is a very tense time on the korean peninsula following another missile test. south korea says this ballistic missile that was tested flew 500 miles before crashing into the ocean. north korean video is showing images of kim jong un watching. the north says it plans to conduct another test very soon and it is against this backdrop, the u.s. and south korea are holding joint military exercises. our ivan watson gets excusive access on board a u.s. aircraft carrier as it carries out flight
operations. >> reporter: that is an f-18 war plane just taking off from the deck of the u.s. aircraft carrier. -- off the east of the korean peninsula. [ jet engine ] -- part of annual joint military exercises with south korea. but this is a time of great tension on the korean peninsula. north korea argues that these exercises could be a precursor to a military invasion. north korea has launched missiles twice in just eight days. that's a move seen as
provocative and threatening. not only by the u.s., japan and south korea but also by the united nations security council. they say this is in violation of many u.n. security council resolutions which prohibit north korea from testing nuclear weapons or firing ballistic missiles. the u.s. is trying to reassure its allies in the region while also sending a warning of deterrents to north korea. the aircraft carrier is the largest war machine in the u.s. arsenal. and by sending it to the region this is an unmistaken show of military strength. ivan watson, cnn aboard the u.s. aircraft carrier. >> thank you. trumps versus meg kelly. the feud has reunited. and here's a question for you. what does your brain look like
when you are watching donald trump. >> hmm. that's interesting. and an actress who held penn get to "el chapo." why she says she has a problem with parts of penn's controversial story. fe behind i. ♪ those who have served our nation have earned the very best service in return. ♪ usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.
who's obsessed. joining me now is brian stelter. you have a conservative network seemingly going after the gop dprun front runner. is this going to go away any time soon? >> certainly on fox news trump has a number of friends. a number of hosts who are friendly to him. but he seems to be dismayed whenever he's watching megyn kelly's show and he doesn't like the guests who appear on her show. some are pro trump. others are against. she has a wide variety of guest on her show. lately he's been calling her crazy which some would think is a sexist reference. there is a meaning of crazy when applied to women that is different to when applied to men. so when he says crazy megyn kelly it certainly has a specific connotation.
almost as if he's applying the same tactics to jeb bush and marco rubio by calling them names now applying to a news anchor instead. >> i want to play a clip here. this of his campaign manager lewandowski and whether he touched, pulled on the collar of this gentlemen here who was a participate at a trump rally. the trump camp is saying he did not pull on his collar. he did not initiate anything. he didn't touch him. now there is video though. >> it certainly was a confusing statement from the trump campaign because the statement does not jive with the video we're seeing on screen. there are two men. cory wearing a the suit jacket and the two of them are speaking
with this protester. the obviously the protester was disrupting the crowd according . but it does seem to me to be that this is another example of this campaign getting physical. we have seen this before with supporters of trump hitting or kicking or punching protesters in the crowd. in this case, though, the campaign manager is very clearly involved. it just leads you to wonder what is the campaign manager doing out in the crowd? the campaign manager for bernie sanders and hillary clinton and ted cruz and john kasich generally are not out and about in the crowds. but then again, trump's campaign events are very different from all the other campaigns. we're talking here about events that have become like stages. the protesters are kind of players in these events with trump. trump uses the protesters to his advantage in many cases. >> all right. and i'm sure we'll obviously hear more from his camp about what happened there. >> i think trump is going to have to address this. >> yeah. >> there have been questions in the past about the campaign manager. there was a dispute about a week and a half ago involving a
reporter. the details of that are very much in dispute. but i think in this case because it's on video so clearly, the candidate's going to have to be asked about it. >> right, right. listen, we need to get to this experiment that you did. posing this question -- and the question alone kind of makes you chuckle -- what does trump do to the brain? tell us about this neurological experiment you conducted. >> i said conservative politics has been scrambled. i think all of our politics has been scrambled thanks to donald trump. he's a one of a kind phenomenon. we wanted to strap on these headsets at the most recent debate. we convened a focus group. we're going to show the results at about 11:00 a.m. eastern today. we found that donald trump is off the charts when you compare him to his gop rivals. he engages the brain like no other candidate does on the gop side. so you see me wearing the headset there. basically what we were doing is measuring brain waves. what we found was that when trump speaks, when he appears on
screen, even democrats and independents have their brains lit up in a way that doesn't happen with ted cruz or john kasich. so i think what it speaks to is the idea that trump has been practicing his craft on television for over a decade. you know, on nbc's "the apprentice." so able to perform on tv in a way no other candidate is. i think it partly explains his appeal. even if you don't like what he's saying, your brain pays attention. >> you get a reaction. yes. or he gets a reaction regardless of who it is. brian stelter, looking forward to seeing that. thank you so much. >> thanks. >> that is fascinating. >> isn't it? >> i'm looking forward to that. a mexican telenovela star is speaking out and why she's unhappy with sean penn who made that secret trip with her. >> so why say that and why just hurt mexico in that way? we're already too hurt. we are already in pain, mexico is bleeding right thousand.

guzman's son was their driver. here's what she tells cnn espanol. >> that's one of the biggest inconsistencies that i see in sean's article. and that i'm -- it really bothers me because that never happened. that never happened. and also, one of the -- both producers said that they don't recall that. event. so i'm happy they say that. sean still says that it did happen. i can -- i'm mexican, and listen, i am the first one that will talk about the government, you know, raise my voice against the government and whatever. i also love mexico. and i feel angry about that statement that he did, that he wrote because it's not -- it's just not true. so why say that, and why just hurt mexico in that way? we're already too hurt. we already are in pain, mexico is bleeding right now. >> watch the full two-hour interview. it airs friday on cnn in espanol.
well, donald trump's campaign manager under fire this morning after this video appears to show him grabbing a protester by the collar of his shirt. trump's campaign tells a different story about the video. >> yeah, the campaign has released a statement. corey was speaking with a protester at saturday's rally in tucson, arizona, when the individual he was speaking with was pulled from behind by the man to lewxowski's left. did you know today is the first day of spring? the east coast, i know, braced for a snowstorm. boston, forecasts show about four inches of snow could fall for you. new york and philadelphia, a light dusting. and washington is expected to stay dry, but either way, temperatures are going to drop considerably all along the east coast. so don't put those coats away yet. >> ooh, look at this. nearly ten-carat diamond here up for auction at

bad, but the other team. >> and they all know it because look, they're just standing back and letting him go. this is what you needed to see on a sunday morning. going to get you going. thank you for starting your morning with us. >> "inside politics" starts right now. donald trump at ground zero in america's immigration debate. >> we're going to build a wall, and we're going to stop it. it's going to end. >> arizona and utah are big tests of trump's momentum. and at whether ted cruz, as they say in the west, is all hat and no cattle. >> we're seeing republicans unite all across this country. >> plus bernie sanders tests a new dig at hillary clinton. >> and let me say a word or two about my good friend donald trump. just kidding. he's not my good friend.
