commitment, saying he is being treated unfairly. ted cruz said he cannot support someone who attacks his wife and family. john kasich adding that he cannot support someone who is hurting and dividing the country. >> that is going on as his campaign manager was arrested simple battery for grabbing and pulling a reporter. there is so much at stake right now. so we have this race covered for you as only cnn can. we begin with ms. dana bash live in milwaukee. my gosh. take it away. a heck of a lot going on. it sure is, don. good morning. and you remember this whole concept of a pledge came up because the republican party was very concerned that donald trump early on would leave the party. run as a third-party candidate.
now it has gotten so intense it is the other candidates who don't want to support him. things have gotten so ugly, all three remaining republican candidates went back on their promises to support the party nominee. >> no. i don't anymore. >> you don't? >> no. >> that came after cruz refused to back trump, despite approximate being asked three times. >> i'm not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my family. that is going beyond the line. >> trump says he understands if cruz won't support him. >> i don't want his support. i don't need his support. i want him to be comfortable. >> and a new warning among party leaders. >> look, i won the state of missouri. no, i have. i've been treated very unfairly. i'll give you an example. >> by who? >> i think by basically the rnc,
the republican party, the establishment. >> john kasich went so far as to say he never should have made the pledge in the first place. >> if the nominee i think is someone hurting the country dividing the country, i can't support them. >> he came eager to defend his campaign manager, charged earlier in the day with simple battery against a reporter. >> based on what i heard, i don't think he even knew who she was. >> on the other hand, he calls the distraction, the ugly back and forth about their wives, he was vintage trump. >> i didn't start it. sir, with all due respect, that's the argument of a 5-year-old. >> no, it's not. you would say that. that's the problem with our country. >> every parent knows the kid who says he started it. >> that's the problem. exactly that thinking is the problem this country has. i did not start this. >> cruz once again denied knowing anything about the anti-trump superpac ad featuring
melania trump and doubled down for planting a tabloid report of cruz and infidelity. >> the west worked for decades to avoid may be okay. he went further. >> can i be honest with you? maybe it is time to change. you have so many people. china has it. pakistan has it. we're better off in japan protects itself against this maniac in north korea. >> cruz defended his own controversial national security idea to control muslim communities n u.s. >> if you want to stop radicalization -- >> kasich can called that
ridiculo ridiculous. >> how are we going to get the information we want? >> it was simple questions the candidates had trouble answering. >> what would you regard as your greatest personal failure and what did you learn from it? >> you know, those are always tricky questions. >> when was the last time you actually apologized for something. >> oh, wow. i don't know. can i think? i apologized to my mother years ago for using foul language. >> and michaela, he also added that he has apologized to his wife for not acting presidential enough here on the campaign trail. it was certainly an intense and in many, many ways, revealing town hall all in advance of the primary right here in wisconsin
in just six days. michaela. >> proof that even our mothers can-c make us squirm a little b if we use bad language. his campaign manager charged with misdemeanor battery. trump went a step further suggesting that she, the reporter, is at fault. the campaign is facing criticism for not taking the violence allegations seriously. sara murray is live in milwaukee with more on this. sarah. >> that's chutely right. the campaign's approach from the beginning has been to trying to discredit the reporter and say she made the whole thing up. in light of new video and in light of the charges, donald trump is taking a different approach, saying the reporter touched me first. >> she shouldn't have been touching me, okay. my arm. it's never been the same, folks. >> donald trump is vowing to
stick with his campaign manager cory lewandowski. >> i think they really hurt a very good person. and i know it would be very easy for me to discard people. i don't discard people. >> cory lewandowski was charged with misdemeanor battery and turned himself in in jupiter, florida. michelle fields, seen in the light colored jacket. cory lewandowski said fields was deillusional. >> all of a sudden she bolts into the picture. she grabs me or hits me on the arm. in fact, i'm like this with my
arm up. and he goes by. maybe he touched her a little bit. but it was almost like he was trying to keep her off me, right? >> fields tweeted a photo of the bruises on her arm. they appeared to be several finger marks indicating a grabbing type injury. now trump is calling those into question as well. >> how do you know those bruises weren't there before? wouldn't you think she would have let out a scream she has bruises on her arm? >> he will enter a not guilty plea. but rivals insist the latest incident reflects the tenor of the trump campaign. >> it is consistent with a paper of the trump campaign. i think there is no place in politics for insults, for personal attacks, for going to the gutter. >> both cruz and kasich agree, if this were their staffer, he would be terminated. >> from what i understand the
video is clear. of course i would fire him. >> cnn has reached out to michelle fields for further comment. as the trump campaign is insisting she has changed her story along the way. she did weigh in on twitter saying my story never changed. seriously. just stop lying. as for lewandowski, he has been released and we expect him to appear in court may 4th. >> here to discuss is our cnn political power. time warner cable news errol lewis, presidential campaign correspondent for the "new york times" maggie ha approximate berman and david gregory. let's start with the headlines. it sounds like the pledge is dead. what does this mean for the path forward for the republicans? >> well, you see it unraveling. as trump continues to succeed, it only deepens. if you're donald trump and
you're going to be the nominee of the party you want some consolidation at some point along the way. it doesn't appear that's happening. if other candidates would stand up and say this guy would be a train wreck. i think this is also a serious warning for the party. it's true. if you're a pledged delegate to donald trump and you vote for him on the first ballot and there are subsequent ballots at the convention, you're likely to go elsewhere. you don't have to vote for him on the second and third ballot, you can go somewhere else. you will say, wait a minute, what kind of process is this? a lot of supporters could come with him. the results we don't know yet. it's probably not good for the party and the chances in november. >> john kasich and donald trump were very clear. i know they were saying is they all three broke their pledge. cruz hedged a little bit. he didn't say he wouldn't support donald trump. he said i don't believe donald trump is going to be the nominee. am i wrong with that? >> he said i listened to him he
people should be crystal clear. the media should i think move away from something brokered convention or some sort of contested convention. no. it's a convention. this happens all the time. >> the rules are set up for this very possibility? >> exactly this scenario. it happened so many times in our lifetime. i remember as a kid staying up until 1:00 in the morning to see george mcgovern finally give his acceptance speech after he got crushed. it happens. it's actually very important to me. this is what happens. frankly, the last time there was a business person who had never run for any office, never served before, 1940, six ballots at 1:00 in the morning. fist fights on the floor. it was literally a bloody fight.
pandemonium was the word used at the time. this is the scenario they are walking down. >> how do you get voters to say that? he said there will be a revolt if there happens to be a contested convention. this isn't a back door smoky teal. this is how it works. >> this is one of the problems of people opposing donald trump on anything, let alone this issue is combatting the mega phone that he has. he uses twitter. he goes directly to people in interviews. nobody is combatting what he is saying. he's not wrong. supporters are going to be very upset if there is some huge effort at the convention. if he comes in ahead to keep him within. this is not the first time this will happen in history. he is adept at saying to people this is the real thing going on. and there is no counter weight otherwise. >> the video is has come out that now shows this moment of
this alleged altercation between michelle fields and cory lewandowski. it seems neither side's story is captured on that video. she wasn't pulled to the ground. she wasn't pulled backwards. neuer do you see her grabbing donald trump? >> or bolting for him. >> neither side. this moment looks tamer on video than the way it was described. that being said, a campaign manager being arrested and charged, what does this mean? >> there are charges here. there is a legal process. as a political process, i imagine among his supporters, as we often say, trump will be lauded to the fact that he is loyal to his guy, he he stands by his guy and all of that. cory lewandowski tweeted. i don't know if he's delusional. i never touched her. then there is video where he is
intervening. >> that is demonstratively false what he tweeted. >> you have a campaign manager who is intervening. what i can't understand is, i don't know, a political matter. why would you lean into this? why do you want one of your campaign people, when you're already -- you've got this represent you attention for talking about wanting to punch people in the face and have protesters forcibly thrown out, why do you want to get rough with any reporter, he especially when you're such a press accessible campaign? why make a point about loyalty to your guy. >> she said i was able to stabilize or maintain my balance. she never said i went to the ground. she said she was pulled down. that's false. donald trump said she bolted at me. it's all weird. i think your point is right. ted cruz fired one of his campaign managers earlier. the idea that this would be over
for cory lewandowski and his career, that happens all the time. the moment this is over, they have to look for different jobs anyway. >> the way they use their mega phone and the way they treat an incident like this. i don't think anybody is thinking it through. are we trashing this reporter? look, we don't want this kind of thing to happen. i am free to answer any questions. if something happens here untoward, we apologize. he says i'm sorry. >> that's the issue. if you look at that videotape, we have all been doing this a long time. i've been pushed and shoved, pulled by a rope by the clinton campaign last year, which was a pretty low moment. this does happen. but what doesn't happen is someone saying unequivocally there was no contact at all and
you're delusional and lots of twitter comments to discredit her. >> there was a lot said about nuclear proliferation. stick around. we want to talk to you about that. but first over in michaela. bernie sanders doubling down on debating hillary clinton in new york. she is now suggesting she is open to the idea as the campaign releases a new ad in new york this morning. both candidates are hoping to win the delegate rich state they both have ties to. by now, hillary clinton had hoped to be focusing on the fight ahead. of course she still has a big fight with bernie sanders. never mind that. her campaign is releasing this
brand-new ad focusing squarely on donald trump. she is trying to on look stronger by going after mr.
trump >> new york. 20 million people strong. no, we don't all look the same. we don't all sound the same either. but when we pull together, we do the biggest things in the world. when some say we can solve america's problems by building walls and turning against each other, well, this is new york. and we know better. >> it
almost sounds like the general election is at hand here, but of course it's not. the wisconsin primary next week is a big moment for the clinton campaign. they are looking beyond it in just a little bit. she will be campaigning in new york later this morning as well as tomorrow. bernie sanders is coming tomorrow as well. wisconsin is a central front. clinton campaign worried about their chances there. trying to plant their flag here in new york. alisyn, that is the first time we are seeing direct engagement on television. >> very interesting to see that, jeff. thanks so much. we want to talk about the

last night's town hall, also including nuclear proliferation and the future of nato. errol i want to discuss with you. donald trump apparently contradicting himself when it comes to more countries either using or getting nuclear weapons or not having nuclear weapons. not quite sure what was going on. let's listen in and we'll discuss. >> at some point we have to say you know what, we're better off in japan protects itself against this maniac in north korea. we're better off frankly in
south korea is going to start protect itself. >> saudi arabia? >> absolutely. >> you're fine with them having nuclear weapons. >> no. but they have to protect themselves. >> if you say, japan, it's okay. >> it's going to happen anyway. it's only a question of time. they're going to start having them. or we have to get rid of them entirely. >> errol, how troubling is that response? seriously. >> very troubling. those of us who grew up in the shadow of nuclear devastation as a possibility to see somebody talk to flippantly about arming the most hostile border in the world, between south korea and north carolina. they have an armistice but not a peace treaty. who are technically still at war and have been for years. to hear about saudi araby where 20 highjackers caused 9/11. it portrays a flip lack of understanding what has happened
the last 60 years. it is very, very troubling. people have to really take this seriously. this notion of trump talks like i talk about different things. well, you know, that's really not good enough. >> he's not that far off base if you think about what's one of the nature fears with iran getting a nuclear program. there would be an immediate arms race and the saudis would want their own arms. the whole concept of a nuclear umbrella is to reduce the proliferation as much as possible and let the united states have some oversight over this. because you don't want individual nations settling their scores with nuclear weapons. by the way, it's not they would deliberately do it. people make mistakes in high office. that's how world war i started. >> here's what's interested. you had this comprehensive interview in which he said
nuclear proliferation is the biggest threat, his biggest concern, his biggest fear. so give more countries more? >> i did an interview with trump, 100 minutes over two separate interviews and he said things that were not always consistent. he said he would use nukes as a last resort. but on the other hand it's fine if other places are increasing their development because they can defend themselves more clearly. there are things he says that are rooted in positions that others here have taken. for instance, in terms of the saudis. obama had this comment about the saudis. gates in 2010 talked about nato and a crumbling at the edges that was going to affect europe and other countries. it's just that he takes these things and pushes them out much further than we have seen before. in terms of his stance on nuclear weapons, a great threat
is terrorists acquiring smaller nukes. so trump talks in sort of broad strokes. but he doesn't look at a lot of granular detail. we were trying -- i would like to say very hard -- to find out where he actually stands on a lot of these issues. i did feel i left it with greater knowledge than we had before. >> he was also asked last night about nato in your interview and elsewhere. he talked about the future of nato and whether it would be obsolete. listen to this. >> i think it is largely obsolete. it's got to be changed. you don't talk about terror. our single biggest threat right now is terror. i really do understand this stuff. nato is obsolete. that doesn't mean it can't be fixed and made good. >> a financial component --
>> you have countries in nato. i think it's 28 countries. countries in nato are getting a free ride and that's not fair. >> is that true, errol? >> no, it's not. this is a broad question about is the united states an exceptional nation, are we the guarantor of peace and have we been the last 60 years. the answer to that is yes. to the extent he wants to change it on a short-term cost basis, you know, here again, it's a very important kind of a conversation. >> you have to remember president obama, in his interview in the atlantic said, look, great britain has to get over 2% on gdp. and i pushed cameron to do that. you look at all a lot nato
countries, what they spend is far down than what the united states spends. he doesn't get into nato does fight terrorism. it is a major factor going into afghanistan for the past decade. two, what about the check on putin and the baltic states part of nato. and that president says something to the russians. any candidate can have these positions, be a little bit vaguer and more refined as they go along. but there is a world view that is not just unorthodox but may not be factoring in all the important pieces. >> i want to move on. i thought john kasich was strong last night. let's listen to what he said. >> if we polarize the entire muslim community, how are we going to get the information they want? we want muslims who go to mosques and see radicalization
to tell authorities about it. the vast, vast, vast majority of muslims, they think their religion has been hijacked. we have murderers out there who have distorted their religion. they want to stop this as much as we want to stop this. >> he's at odds with the other two candidates. >> where he is in line is with george w. bush who said this after the 2011 terror attacks. donald trump a couple weeks ago say in another town hall say islam hates us, which is a pretty strong statement. this is the kind of statement that is making republican leaders very concerned about a general election. take away everything else about that. it is a political statement that will be hard to pull back from. >> thank you, everyone. michaela, over to you. police in brussels are intensifying their manhunt for two fugitives linked to last week's terror attacks.
the mayor of belgium's capital saying there is no such thing as normal anymore. as the search for the suspects gone cold. hey there, michaela. the fear is palpable. people have been living under this height especiallied terror level as these events continue to unfold. investigators are of course targeting two additional bombing suspects from the brussels attack. a third possible bomber from the airport as well as a second possible from the metro station. they carry out raids to try to find those men or any information about them. they have identified another eight suspects who they are looking for, people they believe are connected to either the brussels attack or the paris attack. it is why you see so many police
officers on the streets of city and why you see stepped up security presence. it reopened yesterday after the easter holiday with heightened reports. we are hearing it could be months before the airport is open again. efforts to get it open on a limited basis haven't been successful yet. don. >> thank you very much for that. we appreciate it. now the three remaining gop candidates are breaking that vow. what does that mean for the party moving forward? we'll discuss that coming up. why do so many businesses rely on the us postal service? because when they ship with us, their business becomes our business. that's why we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. here, there, everywhere. united states postal service priority: you

♪ we can't let you download... uh, no thanks. i have x1 from xfinity so... don't fall for directv. xfinity lets you download your shows from anywhere. i used to like that song. a major reversal at last night's town hall. all three gop candidates back off their pledge to support the eventual republican nominee. >> i'm not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my family. that is going beyond the line. >> i have been disturbed by some of the things i have seen. and i have to think about what my word and endorsement would mean in a presidential campaign.
so i want to see how this thing finishes out. >> no. i don't anyway. >> you don't? >> no. >> you won't promise to support the republican nominee. >> and he was essentially saying is the same thing. >> let's bring in john phillips and political columnist for the ok register. ben ferguson is cnn political commentator and host of the ben ferguson show. thanks very much for being here. ben i want to start with you. it sounds like all the candidates reneged on the pledge. cruz equivocated somewhat on it. what does it moving forward then? >> i think what this means is you have to have a different dialogue coming specifically from donald trump's campaign. i think that's what that is in reference to. an individual is attacking his wife, that has gone to the lowest form we have seen in a republican primary in decades. i'm not sure even in history we
have seen something this bad. and you also have a guy that last night advocated for nuclear proliferation in donald trump while saying we need to get out of nato. those are things that are not conservative. that is one reason you're seeing this. i don't know if i can advocate for an individual who said i want a nuclear country like china but i want to get on it of nato. he is a guy sitting there attacking a wife personally, lying about his wife, and sending around retweets saying i don't have to be held accountable for other people's words if i endorse them. that's why you are seeing this, hey, i don't know if i can support donald trump if he continues this type of rhetoric. >> john, you're a trump supporter. some of the positions he took last night trouble you? >> no. i think what you saw last night was the tacit acknowledgment of both cruz and kasich. the only way they will win this is from horse trading going on
and brokered convention. will you get behind the eventual nominee? at that point the only person that realistically has a chance at that is donald trump. and so these guys don't want to give up the power they have. they don't want to say, yeah, we'll get behind donald trump if they plan on winning at a brokered convention and plan on playing dirty pool. >> errol lewis reminded us in a contested convention or the candidates at least duking it out is not an anomaly. in fact, it has happened in the recent past. this is what conventions are designed for, to figure out who will be the party's nominee going forward. so, you know, donald trump says it would be a catastrophe and his supporters would revolt. but maybe this is what the rules say can happen. >> well, first of all, this is one of those narratives that donald trump has been pushing.
look at him say i'm going to sue in louisiana if i don't get my way there. nothing bad has happened in louisiana. you have ted cruz who outplayed him with the rules on the ground. you also have delegates that have the freedom after marco rubio drops out to do whatever they want to do. that is how the game is actually played with the rules of the game that are used in a convention and with delegates. and this idea that donald trump says i'm going to sue you if i don't get my way. or i'm going to go rogue. if the rules of the convention are applied to the exact moment when we get there based on the fact that he did not receive the delegates that he needed to win this, you have now donald trump saying, well, then i'm going to destroy everyone else's chances and destroy the republican party at the same time. that is coming unhinged by donald trump pushing a narrative which somehow he has been wrong or something has been stolen from him. this is the game.
you knew the rules when you got in the convention. it is the entire reason why we have a convention in the first place. >> john, i want you to respond to that in a second. this is where the delegate count is. let me draw your attention to marco rubio there, who is still holding on to his 173 delegates. so he can give them i think to who he pleases. that makes the numbers even more competitive, john. >> that's right. but when you look at the states that haven't voted yet, you're looking at big blue states where donald trump is leading in the public polls. after wisconsin, the state of new york votes, donald trump is right now leading by double digits in the most leading polls. he is leading in the state of california by double digits. i live here. i'm a native californian. i've lived here my entire life. ted cruz will have a difficult time winning in california. in a republican primary, california voters will not put
up with that sort of thing. he's going to have a very difficult time living in coastal blue states where donald trump has huge leads. >> thank you very much, alisyn. candidates building questions about jobs during cnn's town hall. they have different ideas how to help the american workforce. we'll break it down for you next. the web's leading job boards with a single click. then simply select the best candidates from one easy to review list. you put up one post and the next day you have all these candidates. makes my job a lot easier.

kind of like this look. i'm calling it the "name your price tool" phase. whatever. europe remains on high alert following brussels terror attack. the manhunt intensifying for the subway bombers. michael weiss, pleasure. you've been with us so much. sadly because of all of this. we are still examining it. two men at large. one they have identified. one we essentially know nothing
about. that makes this problematic. in terms of the problem that poses for belgium but also for europe as a whole, how do they get their hands around it? >> i think they're scrambling, to be honest. this is the open secret. a man they have accused publicly of something like a jihadi nightmare, jihadi horror story. they let him good because there wasn't enough evidence to indict this guy, although he is still bizarrely charged. i cited a cia officer of 19 years plus standing who said going over to europe and liaising with any eu country is like dealing with children. they have not grasped the full
magnitude and enormity of this threat. it was this culture. >> on top of a situation of foreign fighters returning, five parliaments, four governments, 12 districts within brussels itself. each of those has its own police force. you can imagine cross-communication is going to be challenging. two languages there. we heard a lot of times they tell us the police there, very few of them speak arabic. >> yes. >> and that for districts like monthly especially beck it provides a huge, huge problem. >> yeah. and there was some reporting -- the guardian did a day or two ago that people in molenbeek were getting text messages, don't inform on your neighbors.
don't give them anything. i would call it broken window theory of counter terrorists. having people from the community of north african decent, muslims, join the government, bureaucracy, and imbed in the communities and become active members. this is how you gather human intelligence. they don't do that very well. >> problematic, absolutely. tonight on cnn chris cuomo is taking a look at the paris attacks, examining the terror that rocked the city of love. and we have a clip of that that i want to play right now for you to see. >> it's just after 9 can:30 p.m. when investigators say the black car they believe carries abdel mu ma'am head abaaoud pulls up to casa nosto. this shows the moment a normal friday turns tragic. as bullets fly and everyone said
casa nostra ducks. >> i got a call from one of my colleagues who informed me shots and explosions had just taken place in paris. so i immediately got on my motorcycle and returned to the hospital. >> outside, the terror continues. a gunman approaches and aims at a woman lying on the ground. he pulls the trigger. then a miracle. his gun jams. and she scrambles to safety were. >> incredible to look at that. a few short months ago. then we see belgium. lieu at paris. is paris any safer than it was? >> the network responsible for this. again, this is like a vast underground apparatus, a honeycomb structure beneath brussels, people have been rounded up. people have been identified.
i can tell you trying to report on what's really taking place inside isis has become a little more difficult. that's good. it means counterterrorism officials, from france, here, britain, wherever are playing things close to the chest pause they know some of the things involved. i don't just mean operatives running around europe. isis is now in a sense by fur indicating as an organization. there's the domestic apparatus, which is still fighting the war in syria and iraq. and there is the foreign intelligence service. and the people who are now rising to the top of the ladder are europeans. in some cases, not even of arab and north african decent. that is the problem coming forward. they come from these cities, these countries, and they imbed. they know the landscape. >> michael weiss, thank you so much for this. the special airing tonight "terror in paris" 9:00 p.m.
eastern on cnn. our wives, i think our kids, should be a off-limits. they don't belong in the attacks. >> i didn't start it. >> sir, with all due respect, that's the argument of a 5-year-old. >> i didn't start it. >> it's gotten really ugly. >> i don't want his support. i don't need his support. >> am i supposed to press charges against her? >> it would be so easy for me to terminate this man, ruin his life. i don't discard people. >> we have to be strong smart. >> we are kind of on a role. >> help me keep the republicans out of the white house. >> democrats want the strongest candidate. you're lacking at him. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, a alisyn couple rat ta
and michaela pereira. we begin with the republican revolt at cnn's town hall less than a week before the wisconsin primary. three gop candidates all backing away from their pledge to support the party's eventual nominee. the divide between the republican party now even wider with ted cruz and john kasich refusing to commit to backing their choice. >> donald trump is supporting his embattled campaign manager who was arrested and charged with simple battery on a female reporter. he has reviewed the videotape and now claims she is at fault. we have this race covered only the way cnn can cover it. we begin with dana bash live in milwaukee. so much to discuss, dana. good morning. >> good morning. that's right. in campaigns past, generally what happened is that the parties come together. the candidates who fought so
bitterly have a unity event to get behind the nominee and turn towards the general election. it is incredibly hard to see that happening after last night. things have gotten so ugly, all three remaining republican candidates went back on their promises to support the party nominee. >> no. i don't anymore. >> you don't? >> no. >> that came after cruz refused to back trump, despite approximate being asked three times. >> i'm not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my family. that is going beyond the line. >> trump says he understands if cruz won't support him. >> i don't want his support. i don't need his support. i want him to be comfortable. >> and a new warning among party leaders. >> look, i won the state of
missouri. no, i have. i've been treated very unfairly. i'll give you an example. >> by who? >> i think by basically the rnc, the republican party, the establishment. >> john kasich went so far as to say he never should have made the pledge in the first place. >> if the nominee i think is someone hurting the country dividing the country, i can't stand by hind them. >> donald trump came eagerly to defend his campaign manager, charged earlier in the day with simple battery against a reporter. >> based on what i heard, i don't think he even knew who she was. >> on the other hand, he calls the distraction, the ugly back and forth about their wives, he was vintage trump. >> i didn't start it. sir, with all due respect, that's the argument of a 5-year-old. >> no, it's not. you would say that. that's the problem with our country. >> every parent knows the kid who says he started it. >> excuse me. no, no. that's the problem. exactly that thinking is the problem this country has. i did not start this. >> cruz once again denied knowing anything about the
anti-trump superpac ad featuring melania trump and doubled down for planting a tabloid report of cruz and infidelity. >> trump rattled world leaders by suggesting a nuclear asia, which the west worked for decades to avoid, may be okay. at cnn's town hall, he went further. >> can i be honest with you? maybe it is time to change. you have so many people. china has it. pakistan has it. at some point we have to say we're better off in japan protects itself against this maniac in north korea. >> cruz defended his own controversial national security idea to control muslim communities in u.s. >> if you want to stop ral callism, the isn't to go out and hang out in random neighborhoods. >> kasich can called that
ridiculous. . >> if we polarize an entire muslim community, how are we going to get the information we want? >> it was simple questions the candidates had trouble answering. >> what would you regard as your greatest personal failure and what did you learn from it? >> you know, those are always tricky questions. >> when was the last time you actually apologized for something. >> oh, wow. i don't know. can i think? i apologized to my mother years ago for using foul language. >> he also apologized, he said, to his wife, michaela, for not acting presidential enough out here on the campaign trail. but one other thing that came up is whether or not and why not
john kasich and ted cruz are not coordinating more specifically to defeat donald trump. ted cruz had a very interesting answer he said i'm not on running to defeat donald trump. i'm running to win. michaela. >> dana, thank you so much for that. as dana just told us, tramp is standing by his campaign manager, charged with misdemeanor battery for grabbing and bruising a reporter. he is not only refuting the allegations, he is pinning it on the reporter. sara murray live in milwaukee with more. sara. >> that's right, michaela. from the outset, they have tried to discredit this reporter. at times suggesting it never even happened. donald trump is taking a new approach, saying the reporter tried to grab me first and my campaign manager was merely intervening. >> she shouldn't have been touching me, okay? my arm, it's never been the
same, folks. >> donald trump is vowing to stick with his campaign manager corey lewandowski. >> i think they really hurt a very good person. and i know it would be very easy for me to discard people. i don't discard people. >> corey lewandowski was charged with misdemeanor battery and turned himself in in jupiter, florida. it stems from a march 8th incident seen on this newly released video. michelle fields, seen in the light colored jacket. she said someone yanked her arm and fell back but caught herself fr falling. lewandowski said he never touched her, tweeting that fields was delusional. trump was acknowledging there was some contact but he was arguing the reporter was out of line to touch him.
>> all of a sudden she bolts into the picture. she grabs me or hits me on the arm. in fact, i'm like this with my arm up. and he goes by. maybe he touched her a little bit. but it was almost like he was trying to keep her off me, right? >> fields tweeted a photo of the bruises on her arm. according to the police report, they appeared to be several finger marks indicating a grabbing type injury. now trump is calling those into question as well. >> how do you know those bruises weren't there before? wouldn't you think she would have let out a scream she has bruises on her arm? >> his attorney said he is absolutely innocent of this charge and will enter a not guilty plea. but trump's gop rivals insist the latest incident reflects the tenor of the trump campaign. >> it is consistent with a pattern of the trump campaign. i think there is no place in politics for insults, for personal attacks, for going to the gutter. there should be no place for physical violence either. >> both cruz and kasich agree, if this were their staffer, he would be terminated. >> from what i understand the video is clear. of course i would fire him.
>> the trump campaign has suggested this reporter has changed her story along the way, that she is overblowing what happened. she took to twitter yesterday to defend herself saying my story never changed. seriously. just stop lying. as for corey lewandowski, he is due back in court may 4th. >> with more on the strategy for the cruz campaign and the battle for wisconsin, let's bring in chad sweet, the cruz campaign's national chairman. good morning, chad. >> good morning. >> let's talk about how it sounded as though the candidates were renegativing on their loyalty pledge. senator cruz seemed to hedge a bit when asked if he would support the nominee. he had i'm not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my family. why wouldn't he just say no, i would not support donald trump? >> a couple points. number one, donald trump is not going to be the nominee of our
party. number two, the senator is making it clear that he has not said he won't support donald trump outright but rather he is trying to make it clear, as he said, there's no place and having an individual. >> the senator is trying to maintain his support of the party. he is making -- donald trump is making it harder every day. again we're focusing on winning this outright. the senator will make sure donald trump is not the nominee so this is not an issue. >> you sound confident donald trump will not be the nominee. what's your plan? other than we're going to win in
many states, how would you get the number of delegates donald trump already has? you can actually earn well north of 80% of the remaining elected delegates. so on the path forward you can mathematically get there. between now and june 7th, there is plenty to accumulate delegates with both senator cruz and donald trump will be very close going into the election if senator cruz is not at the 12 he will be very close. if it goes to a second, he would have a good chance of becoming
the nominee. >> your plan is to have a contested convention and win it there. is there any you believe you can win between here and there? >> look at the numbers. we were just endorsed by governor walker. we were leading in the polls prior to governor walker's endorsement. we should get an additional vote from that. senator cruz will do well in wisconsin. and i think that's another example where he is not only going to be able to beat donald trump as he did in utah. >> let's talk about the substance of what was said at town hall last night. how the candidates believe
muslim communities should be treated. let's listen to what they said last night. >> listen, if you want to stop radical islamic terrorism, focus on communities. >> i think we have to look very seriously at the mosques. lots of things are happening in the mosques that's been proven. >> we can't afford polarization of people who are in the civilized world. >> chad, what about what kasich was saying there. in order to stop radicalization, you'll need the help, not for them to feel more oflt sistraci >> it is not anti-muslim. sit pro muslim. i worked on and set up the response team for the fbi to
work together any time there was an incident around the world or in the u.s. we would call upon with communities. we would ask how are they being secured? are they having is any backlash against their population and offering support for them. and at the same time, we would then ask for their assistance in countering violent extremism. over and over again they were partners in that effort. they know their community is the most at risk. i'm telling you from my own personal experience, what senator cruz is calling for is actually going to help with the muslim community. he's never going to bow down to political correctness. having no go zones or areas that are effectively law enforcement is not actively visibly engaged and empowered. that's what we saw last week in brussels and the community of molenbeek. you had one of the terrorists
who committed the events in paris come back to brussels, hideout in the very city where nato and the european union is. that's not what we're going to have in our own country. we're going to go ahead and be proactive. the senator is calling for pro muslim, not anti-muslin. >> national chair of the cruz campaign, chad sweet, thank you for being on "new day". >> thank you, alisyn. appreciate that. let's talk about the democrats now. bernie sanders really wants to debate hillary clinton, pushing hard to do it here in new york, suggesting she's open to the idea of her campaign at least as the campaign releases a new ad in new york this morning. both candidates hoping to win. jeff zeleny is here with more. >> hillary clinton said she is open to having a debate in brooklyn in the childhood home of bernie sanders. a new ad is focusing on donald
trump. there is still an active primary going on in the state of wisconsin next week and coming to new york in about three weeks's time. bernie sanders last night explained some of this anger in the electorate. while there is crossover appeal between voters who might like him and donald trump, he sat down with erin burnett. >> there is a lot of anger in this country. for your average guy, he is asking why he has to work longer hours for low wages. trump is saying it's the fault of the muslims or the mexicans. beating up on mexicans who make eight bucks an hour is not going to deal with the real issues. >> when you talk to voters in wisconsin you wonder is there crossover appeal with bernie sanders and donald trump. yes. they have an open primary
system. they can vote on either side. alisyn, it's so interesting when you talk to union workers, there is a lot of interest on both sides here. that is something i'm watching next week. bernie sanders supporters and donald trump supporters, if it will resonate with bernie sanders. north carolina attorney general refusing to stand behind a new law called anti lgbt. it requires people to use bathrooms based on birth gender. more than 80 corporations now publicly objecting, including bank of mesh, based in charlotte. north carolina is being sued by the aclu. an update we told you about first last year. term next is being fined $10

very surprising move at last night's cnn town hall. none of the three candidates keeping their pledge to support the party's nominee. senior editor "the atlantic", mr. ron brownstein. and cnn politics executive editor mark preston. good morning, gentlemen. ron, i want to go to you first. because how significant is it that all three candidates backed off supporting the gop nominee no matter what. ted cruz hedged a little bit. but they all basically backed off it. >> it was very significant. i was on with chris cuomo. you cross two divergent path and end up in the same place. it is more and more clear you will have an enormous fissure in
the party if you nominate donald trump. it was most remarkable he not only refused to pledge to support the nominee, but he basically said i don't want ted cruz's endorsement and implied i don't want scott walker's endorsement. he really underscored the extent to which it is something of a takeover of the party. it's not necessarily bringing in new voters. it is realigning in a new way. it is a fundamental objection of the leadership of the party. we have nephew seen anything like it at this point in the primary process. basically they have been unfair to me. so i am preparing for what would happen at the convention. listen to donald trump.
>> i've been treated very unfairly. >> unfairly by who. >> basically the rnc, the republican party, the establishment. >> what does the future of the gop look like with this pledge out of the window. donald trump saying, hey, they're trying to steal it. >> not only donald trump but john kasich as well saying he regrets actually making a pledge during the first debate back in august. and ted cruz saying i don't know if i can support somebody who attacks my wife the way donald trump has. you are seeing the grassroots activists outside of washington, d.c. outside of new york city, who are just fed up. they see a voice in donald trump. as we head into cleveland, you're going to see a republican party that is fractured to the
point you're going to have to start looking inward and say if we remain fractured heading into november, we will lose to the democratic nominee, which now looks like hillary clinton. at some point the republican party needs to come together. when donald trump says i beat bush, paul, cruz, i understand why they don't want to support me, that's not usually what happens. >> does this leave, ron, an opening for the rnc and establishment to fight against trump. there is a stop trump movement within his own party. but does this now give more wiggle room to be stronger ask say, you know what, we don't want this guy. >> yeah. it has been an extraordinary few weeks. as experienced as bob dole said in late january, maybe we would be better off with donald trump
than ted cruz. ted cruz would lead to cataclysmic losses. i think continuing yesterday where in this extended conversation about the allegations against his campaign manager he never -- he never managed to categorically state it was wrong for a man to use physical force against a woman. this candidate was 75% unfavorable rating among women. it is beyond trump's only maneuvering, i think what really gives fuel to the resistance is this sense he has become much weaker as a general election candidate the past month than he was earlier. looking at trump's historically high unfavorables, there's a lot of anxiety about that. that more than anything will fuel this resistance that is deepening rather than the consolidation that mark talked about. >> let's talk about the headlines and what happens in brussels. there was much discussion about
what to do about muslim neighborhoods and so forth. let's listen to ted cruz, what he had to say. >> listen, you are right, that after i called for increased vigilance in protecting us, i understand that the commissioner who works for bill de blasio, he is a left wing. he gave it in political correctness. if you want to stop radical islamic terrorism, the answer isn't to go out and hang out in random neighborhoods. focus on where it is a risk. >> donald trump and ted cruz basically on the same note when it comes to this. john kasich last night the only one who is saying you know what this is exactly what is wrong. that we should be embracing the
muslim community. >> right. that's why some were saying john kasich, where were you three, four, five months ago. he is the type of candidate that would do better in a general election. we talk about the base on the democratic side and the republican side. in the end for the most part they will come up for the candidates. the base doesn't necessarily rally around him. they are won on the edges, in the middle, with independent voters. and you have to wonder when you come into november, will rhetoric like that not play very well. at the present time there is a lot of fear in the united states about another terrorist attack. as we have seen in the past, civil liberties do trump the idea of doing something like patrolling muslim neighborhoods and proactively trying to find people in these neighborhoods. >> thank you, gentleman. >> thank you. >> michaela. >> all right, don.

trump standing by his top aide at cnn's town hall last night. that aide, his campaign manager, corey lewandowski, was charged with simple battery after allegedly grabbing a reporter. good morning, congressman. >> good morning, alisyn. >> let's just start there before we get to the substance of what happened last night. should donald trump fire corey lewandowski. >> i think he made clear last night he wasn't. it looks like we have law enforcement. in terms of somebo is it enough that he doesn't need a headache like this and he should let corey lewandowski go?
>> you know, i watched the video. it certainly got a lot of news coverage yesterday. maybe more than the egyptian airline hijacking you can look frame by frame. it looked like she was trying to get the attention of mr. trump. and it looks like maybe, you know, i think that's where he let law enforcement and sort things out. and i'm sure we will find a resolution. >> let's talk about something donald trump said last night at cnn's town hall that raised some eyebrows. he was talking about other countries getting nuclear weapons. and it sounded like he was open to that. listen to this. >> at some point we have to say, you know what, we're better off if japan protects itself against this maniac in north korea. we're better off frankly in south korea will protect itself.
>> saudi arabia. >> absolutely. >> you're fine with them having nuclear weapons. >> no. but they have to protect themselves. >> if you say, japan, it's okay. >> it's going to happen anyway. it's only a question of time. they're going to start having them. or we have to get rid of them entirely. >> congressman, you're on the foreign affairs committee. are you comfortable with these other countries, south korea, saudi arabia, japan having nuclear weapons? >> i don't think that's optimal. i don't like the fact that south korea is testing nuclear weapons. i don't like that they are shooting missiles out to sea in an antagonistic fashion. i think what mr. trump is trying to explain on his foreign policy is that a lot of people complain about the united states and their military might and power, being bullies, the world's
policemen. a lot of people rely on us to protect them i think the point where trump is trying to make is some of these people need to step up and pay a little more for that protection. as you know, we have debt problems of our own and spend 10 times more than any other countries. and it was a little convoluted as far as where he was going. if you want to tie in the whole nuclear iran deal that was a bad deal and doesn't resolve the problems, why is it in the middle east that all of our enemies seem to be getting or having nuclear weapons. the point he was making is he would like to see more reimbursement coming from what we would like to protect. >> he made the point if he doesn't get more reinforcement, those they are do provide us with millions of dollars in terms of protecting them. but i think the point he was making if they don't cough up more money than maybe they
should go at it on their own. do you believe the stability the u.s. provides is worth sticking around in these countries? >> yeah. you know, it's interesting. i remember some of the limited debate i did back in high school in the late 70s, early 80s, nuclear proliferation was the big topic. it's bad. we don't want to see it. but like i said, we do have people considered adversaries, the united states continuing to get nuclear weapons. and i don't think donald trump is condoning nuclear proliferation. but i think with what was happening in israel between israel and iran and their concerns over iran getting nuclear weapons when he said that at some point maybe in time down the road, 10 years, 20 years, maybe something like this is inevitable, i would like to hear him explain that further however. >> let's talk about what happens at the convention and how the path is forward to getting that
number of 1,237 delegates. it's complicated. as you know, marco rubio got out of the race. he has held on to his 173 delegates. he was trying to figure out who to award them to. it has been described as a mosaic of different policies state by state in terms of how the delegates will be allocated. what is mr. trump doing in order to get those, to secure him, which might push him to the 1,237 number? >> i don't know specifically what he's doing. i'm seeing all the candidates are trying to develop a strategy to woo some of these delegates from other states. mr. trump is clearly on the best trajectory to possibly get to 1,237. some of the states that will favor him are new york and california. so it's not out of the question that he will reach the number.
i think he was a little frustrating last night. maybe you will get to this on all the different candidates talking about not honoring the pledge that was such a big dealier on in the debates when you had a stage full of people. we all sometimes agree to things early in a debate that maybe we shouldn't. i do remember one candidate raising his hand on the first debate saying he didn't agree with that. the establishment put pressure on donald trump to make sure he would not run as a third-party candidate, that he would accept the nominee and he made the pledge. as you saw donald trump racking up wins, taking a clear lead, it did seem what he said was somewhat true with the rnc and the establishment working in any way possible to get anybody but trump. in fact, now after jeb was gone and rubio was gone and cruz is left, he seems to become the
establishment darling. and i don't think ted cruz was ever considered anyone's darling within the establishment. >> it is interesting how this has all shaken out and the bedfellows have lined up. thank you so much for being here on "new day". >> thanks for having me. >> let's get to michaela. >> president obama laid out a plan to combat drug abuse. and spur of the moment things. sheraton. ♪ once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots.
but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. what if 30,000 people download the new app? we're good. okay... what if a million people download the new app? we're good. five million?

this has been a man made problem. when it comes to the opioids, preparation opioids, 80% of those prescriptions are in the united states. 80e 80% of the world's opioids are here in the united states. so many given out by doctor's prescriptions. i don't think america -- this was sort of self inflicted is what i'm saying. >> and a slippery slope. a sliding program. painkillers, i think it is worth pointing out, it seems oxycontin, vicodin and percocet. so everybody is on the same page. i'm shocked by how big this problem is. research showing 78 people have died from opioid overdoses a day? >> well, yeah. if you do the math, it could be the number one cause of preventible death in the
country, more so than car accidents. someone dies every 19 minutes from an accidental opioid overdose. it has been crescendoing for some time. you have gotten regulation, the cdc who say these types of medications should never be first line therapy for chronic pain. you will start seeing black box warnings. >> can you walk us through some of the initiatives the president laid out. several. >> a couple of big ones. he wants to make more money available for medical assisted therapy. someone is an addict now, sometimes you use other medications with similar effects. people think of methadone with regard to heroin. but there are other medications that can-can start to wean somebody off. and more money for narcan.
it can change a person's overdose, pull them out of an overdose if they stop breathing or something like that you can give it by injection. first-aid kits. paramedics. they can save lives this way. he wants to make more doctors available to try and treat pain. he's asked for the money. over a billion dollars to get some of these things done. it hasn't been appropriated or voted upon yet. >> perhaps the fact that he was at this summit having a conversation. it is like saying we are not going to ignore this problem anymore. we have to do something about it. i know it is something very close to your heart. thank you for bringing this to us today. >> thank you. >> thanks, michaela. thanks, doctor. hillary clinton focusing squarely on donald trump. should she focus on trump with bernie sanders winning five of the last six states.
we'll discuss that next. with extraordinary offers on our most powerful performance line ever. including the exhilarating is... the thrilling gs... and the powerful rc coupe. [sportscaster vo] because thrills like this... only happen during the command performance sales event. this is the pursuit of perfection. test test test courtyard, the official hotel of the nfl, and i want to remind you that no one's the same without the game... like @squirrelgirl52 who writes, "no football on sundays has left me with a lot of free time. "so i've constructed a small sanctuary for local squirrels. it's a safe haven where they can meet and fall in love and..." ok, i'm going to stop reading right now. you might have some issues that go beyond football's help, but try watching the nfl draft. see if that helps. maybe watch with a friend... or doctor.
hillary clinton trying to splilt her focus between bernie sanders and donald trump: clinton returning to her adopted home state of new york. her new ad is out this morning and directly targets donald trump. let's discuss with political commentator and daily beast commentator sally cohen and the paul beg la. paul is senior advisor to a pro
clinton super pac. hillary clinton's ad.
let's look and then discuss. >> new york. 20 million people strong. no, we don't all look the same. we don't all sound the same either. but when we pull together, we do the biggest things in the world. so when some say we can solve america's problems by building walls, banning people based on their religion and turning against each other, well, this is new york. and we know better. >> is this a power move paul, that she's already focusing on donald trump towards the general and who is this bernie sanders guy? >> yes. and i think democrats are going to love it. if you notice at that town hall last night, the dog that didn't bark was they didn't really attack hillary very often. why? because republicans are so busy destroying each other. which i could not be happier about. that you don't want the same in the democratic party. there is little chance of that
frankly. but i think this is exactly what hillary ought to be doing. at our super pac we have also released an ad last week attacking donald trump. this is where the fight goes. and it is all democrats. we do not want donald trump to have his finger top nuclear button. >> is this an oversight? because bernie sanders has won 5 of the last 6 contests. shouldn't she focus on him somewhat 1234. >> well look, i think her case to voters is first of all she has a bit of an enthusiasm gap with bernie sanders. they both have numbers but his supporters are more passioned. and i think she's trying to get the democratic base on her side a little more fired up. and one way to do that undoubtedly is donald trump. and the other is, look, i think one of her strorngs cases isry have the experience. you know, you can imagine me in the white house. and you can't imagine donald trump. so that contrast plays well to
her. it is still to early to count out senator sanders who i think is giving her a real run for her money. >> the 247 delegates up for grabs here in new york state. but it is also bernie sanders home state as well. how do you think a clinton/sanders county is going to play out here? paul? >> oh i think it will be great. are you kidding me? you are sitting there in manhattan. it is the mother of all media markets and it is going to be great. hiry was the senator from new york. bernie grew up there. has that fantastic brooklyn accent. and they are going to be fighting for the right to take on another quintessential new yorker, archetype, the bully billionaire donald trump. i couldn't be happier. pop your popcorn. pay your cable bill ladies and gentlemen. you don't want to miss a min of the new york primary. >> and maybe sure you subscribe to cnn. >> subway series. >> yeah, they are arguing also, at least going back and forth sal about whether there should
be another debate. bernie sanders wants another debate to happen here. the hillary clinton campaign says well that depends on bernie sanders tone. is this a risky move for her to do that? >> look. i happen to think -- again, i tend to support senator sanders more. but i happen to think she does really well in the debate so i don't know why she'd want to avoid them. obviously the more voters get to know him it helps him i guess. but she's pretty strong in the debate setting. the debates are good for america. people need to see the contrast between the republican mess that keeps happening and the hot mess that happens even when they are asked substantive questions they turn back to insults and personal attacks. the democrats are really talking about substance and giving people ideas and hope and solutions. that is good for the country. i say more debates the better. >> bernie sanders last night spoke to my colleague erin burnett and gave her a very
lengthy interview not only speaking about hibbellary clint but also donald trump and saying donald trump is really capitalizing on the anger and whether or not that was a good move. let's listen and then we'll discuss. >> people are angry. what trump is doing is taking thatting an anger and saying it is the fault of the mexicans or it is the fault of the muslims. we got to scapegoat people. beating up on mexicans who make 8 bucks an hour is not going to deal with the real issues. >> interesting approach. he did discuss hillary clinton but again directly paul, taking on donald trump saying that is not the real issue. that is not the way to go here. >> i think it is so smart. not just -- i think most americans are going to agree exactly with what senator sanders is saying. and i think that is the same tone hillary is trying to strike in that ad. you don't fight fire with fire. you fight fire with water. and one of the phrases you are seeing at hillary rallies and bernie i suspect also are peopling carrying signs saying love trump's hate.
that is the way to beat him. we have to pull together. let's come together instead of coming apart. >> what about the independents and the people who are not sure? how does this play in peoria, as they say? >> it is interesting. a really long conversation you could have here about the angry voters on both sides of the aisle here. and a lot are angry about the same things. an economy that isn't working for working people anymore. hasn't for a long time. it's been rigged finish big business and the rich and set up against the average american. so that part of anger is real. and when where he talk about trade policy, holding wall street accountable. we talk about tax policy. everyone can unite. frankly republicans and democrats, a lot of those angry voters. bernie sanders is exactly right. it is one thing to talk about that anger. that frustration. it is another thing to scapegoat that anger on mexicans and muslims and immigrants. that is the problem.
that is dangerous. and by the way i think most republican voters also are against that. and they are residence natonati what bernie is saying. >> in milwaukee, reporting those are tears of joy. >> little cold here. >> thank you paul. thank you sally. >> following a lot of news including the republican town hall last night. so let's get too it. so let's get too it. [ applause ] -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com
>> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> it is wednesday march 30, 6:00 in the east. john -- don. [ laughter ] >> i can't even say my own name. so it's fine. >> don lemon. you're not john lennon. you're don lemon. we'll figure it outs. mean while the republicans are reneging on their loyalty pledge at last night's cnn town hall in milwaukee. ted cruz, donald trump and john kasich all expressing doubt. >> and meanwhile trump's embattled campaign manager charged with simple battery of a
reporter. trump and standing by his man and placing the blame on the reporter. lewandowski this morning is saying he was responding to a perceived threat against mr. trump. with all of that in mind, we have this race covered as only cnn can. dana bash is live with in milwaukee. take it away. >> good morning. and it is true that things have unravld in a way that nobody expected. especially when you think about the pledge. the whole reason it exists is because party leaders were concerned that donald trump would be the one to leave and run as a third party candidate. now it seems the other two remaining candidates are really skeptical about supporting him. things have gotten so ugly all three went back on their promises to support the nominee. >> do you continue to pledge to
support the nominee? >> no i don't anymore. >> that after ted cruz refused to back trump after being asked three times. >> i'm not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and family. that is going beyond the line. >> trump says he understands if cruz won't support him. >> i don't want his support. i don't it. i want him to be comfortable. >> and reiterated a warning to party leader. >> i have been treated very unfairly. i won the state of missouri. >> awes -- >> awe, true cruz people. i'll give you an example. i wondy. >> unfairly by who. >> the republican party, the establishment. >> john kasich even went so far to say he never should have made the pledge in the first place. if the nominee is dividing the country and dividing the country, i can't stand behind him. >> donald trump eager to defend
his campaign manager. chargeder earl eier with simply battery against a reporter. on another issue he calls a distraction, the ugly back and forth about their wives, trump was vintage trump. >> excuse me. i didn't start it. i didn't start it. >> that's the argument of a five-year-old. >> no it's not. >> the argument of a five-year-old. >> you would say that. that is the problem with our country. that is not a five-year-old. excuse me. >> everybody parent -- >> excuse me. no no. that's the problem. exactly that thinking is the count -- >> cruz denied knowing anything about the anti-trump super pac ad featuring melania and doubled down accusing cruz of infidelity. >> you know the national inquirer has never endorsed -- >> this week. trump rattled world leaders by
suggesting a nuclear asia may be okay. at cnn's town hall he went further. maybe it is going to have to be time to change. so many people. pakistan has it. china has it. some point we have to say we're better off if japan protects itself against this maniac in north korea. >> cruz defended his own controversial national security idea. to patrol muslim communities in the u.s. >> listen, if you want to stop radical islamic terrorism, the answer isn't to go hang out in random neighborhoods. it is instead to focus on communities where radicalization is a risk. >> kasich called that ridiculous. >> if we polarize the entire muslim community how are we going to get the information we want? >> what may have been the most revealing moment of the night were seemingly simple questions that candidates had trouble answering. >> what would you regard as your greatest personal failure? and what did you learn from it? >> you know, those are always --
whether in political campaign or job interview those are always tricky questions. >> when was the last time you actually apologized for something? >> oh wow. [ laughter ] no i do -- i -- i don't know. i'll think. can i think? i apologized to my mother years ago for using foul language. >> now, the next big contest is right here in wisconsin in just six days. 42 delegates at stake. ted cruz is doing pretty well in the polls here. he's hoping to take most if not all of the delegates here and michaela that is he hopes is going to take him to the goal not just of as he said last night keeping donald trump from getting enough delegates to get the nomination but himself winning before the convention in july. >> thanks so much. as we just saw trump is standing
by his embattled campaign manager now charged with battery. but trump going further, suggesting the reporter herself to blame. is is the campaign taking the violence allegation seriously? cnn political reporter sarah murray is live in milwaukee. >> reporter: good morning michaela. the campaign has caught some cricism for that. their approach has been to try to discredit this reporter. and donald trump is taking that a step further now essentially saying the reporter tried to grab him first and this morning cory lewandowski's attorney is saying that she was a perceived threat. >> she shouldn't have been touching me, okay? my arm, it's never been the same folks. [ laughter ] >> donald trump is vowing to stick with his campaign manager, coriry lewandowski. i. >> i think they have really hurt a very good person. and i know it would be very easy for me to discard people. i don't discard people. lewandowski was charged with a misdemeanor count of simple
battery and turned himself into the police in jupiter florida. the charge from a march 8th incident at the trump press conference seen on this newly released video from law enforcement. michelle fields, reporter, seen in the light colored jacket said she felt someone yank her arm and she fell back but caught herself from falling after approaching trump to ask a question, according to the police report. luns douns initially insists he never tuchd her. tweeting earlier that fields was delusional. now trump is acknowledging some contact but he's arguing the reporter was out of line to approach himt him. >> all of a sudden she bolts into the picture. grak grabs me. i'm like this with my arm up. and he goes by. and maybe he touched her a little bit. but i didn't -- it was almost like he was trying to keep her off me, right. >> after the incident she tweeted a photo.
of bruises on her arm. now trump is calling those into question as well. >> how do you know those bruises weren't there before? would you think that we would have yelled out? >> lewandowski's attorney says he's innocent of the charge and will enter a not guilty plea. trump's gop rivals says the latest incident reflects the tenor of the campaign. >> it is consistent with the pattern of the campaign. i think there is no place for politics for insults for personal attacks. for going to the gutter and there noub sho place for physical physical violence either. >> cruz and kasich agreeing if this were their staffer, he would be terminated. >> of course i would fire him. >> while the trump campaign insisted michelle fields has changed her story or accused her of overblowing what happened she took to twitter to defend herself saying my story never changed. seriously, just stop lying.
as for cory lewandowski, he's been released and we're expecting him to appear in court may 4th. back to you. we want to bring in now national co-chair of kasich for america and former homeland security chief tom ridge. good morning governor. >> good morning. >> great to see you. let's talk about some of the head lanes from last night. and what happened. it seems like all the gop candidates are reneging, basically, on the pledge they just took three weeks ago. they were asked on march 3rd if they would support the eventual nominee whoever that is and last night it sounded like a different tune. so if they are not going to support the nominee, what now? >> well first of all i think last night demonstrated there is really only one adult in the room. two candidates were talking about assaults on reporter, insults and counterinsults. the best line of the night was anderson's when he suggested
that was what five-year-olds do. now to get back to your question, i think clearly it is no surprise that donald trump who's gone bankrupt -- contracts don't mean anything to donald. he's gone bankrupt several times and he's put some other businesses out of business. and hurt a lot of people along the way. so pledges to him i don't think mean much. and i don't think the other candidates are quite sincere. as i said way back in december, i want somebody to be proud of in the office who's experienced to be in that office, who represents america's value system. who reaches out and is inclusive. and if any candidate decides any other candidate doesn't fulfill those requirements that americans want. not just republicans or democrats. they ought to feel very comfortable in voting for somebody different. >> and that is why you say you are a john kasich support. last night ted cruz laid out a very specific case of why john kasich cannot be the nominee or even president. so listen to this and i'll get
your response. >> the kasich campaign has made effort to reach out to your campaign to strike some sort of a pact in order to defeat donald trump. wouldn't that make sense. >> it makes no sense at all. john kasich has no path to win it. we are competing to win. not to stop trump. it is against the rules for john kasich to be on the ballot. the rules provide that in order to even be on the ballot, if no one has 1237, you have to have won at least eight states. now there are only two candidates who meet that. >> governor what about that rule that you have to have won eight states. and john kasich probably won't meet that. >> the rule was -- i believe if i recall if my recollection is accurate, was put in in the last convention. and whether or not the rules committee decides to maintain that, rather arbitrary rule as far as i'm concerned, will be up to the rules committee. at the end of the day alisyn,
the convention is almost like halftime in the process of el t electing a president. and if the candidate doesn't get the preferred votes, then i think they are free to choose and identify someone who maybe didn't win the maximum votes in the primary but is able to defeat hillary clinton in the fall. there are a lot of worker bees on the floor at conventions. counterchairman, congressman. people who door to do and make the phone calls and they are looking for a candidate not necessarily who got the northeast votes in the primaries. they look to who do we have that can defeat hibbert. a -- hillary clinton. i think senator cruz wins one and the only candidate on that stage last night by a margin of 4 to 11% defeats hillary clinton is john kasich. >> i want to get to an area that
is one of your areas of expertise. homeland security. last night all of the candidates were asked about the possibility of surveilling muslim communities, which john kasich rejected. he said that would lead to further polarization. ted cruz and donald trump feel differently. let me play you their responses. >> listen, if you want to stop radical islamic terrorism. it isn't to go hang in random neighborhoods it is focus on communities where radicalization is a risk. >> we have to look at the most mosques. that's been proven. >> you were the head of homeland security. given what happened last week in brussels, does it make sense to better surveil muslim communities? >> absolutely not. it flies in the face of our values. it flies in the face of the first amendment to suggest that all of those americans -- and
i've seen different estimates between 5, 7, 8 million americans who are muslim, that we ought to look at them writ large as everyone as the potential terrorist is wrong. it is certainly in the face of the first amendment in the country that embraces men and women of multiple faiths. i think it is absolutely wrong. if there is a reason to be there. if you have probable cause. if you have information, perhaps there is a reason to increase surveillance. but you absolutely need the cooperation, the collaboration and the support of the muslim community. by the way not only in the united states but in the rest of the world in order to defeat radical islam. they are killing more muslims and non muslims. and the notion that if you are muslim you are not coming into the country for a while until we figure out it. whatever that means. or because nur a neighborhood where there's more muslims, wore
going to target you specifically? wrong. >> -- and if you get a tip then go in and surveil. >> if there is probable cause and rationale. but we need allies and friends. i this i bill bratton has the right idea and other individuals involved in law enforcement have the right idea. you need to develop confidence and support and positive relationships with those in that community. most of whom the majority of whom absolutely reject the barbarism of isis and these attacks taken by radical islam. we need their support and when you target them because of how -- what faith they practice it is not only kounlt productive by i could argue un-american. >> thanks so much for being on "new day." >> thank you. to the democrats now. bernie sanders not letting up on his call to debate hillary clinton in new york. both candidates going all in to win the delegate rich state. each have ties to clinton. meanwhile focuses on trump with
a new ad out in new york. jeff zeleny here with more. good morning. >> good morning. by now hillary clinton hoped to be focuses on donald trump or whoever the republican rival may be. and she is doing that in a new ad this morning. but it is not for reasons you might think. she's actually trying to bolster her case among democrats in her tough fight with bernie sanders. trying to make the case here in new york ahead of the primary in just three weeks time that she is the strongest candidate to stop him from taking the bhous. but
look at this new ad here. she voices her self for the first time.white house. but look at this new ad here. she voices her self for the first time. >> new york. 20 million people strong. no, we don't all look the same. we don't all sound the same either. but when we pull together we do the biggest things in the world. so when some say we can solve americ american's problems by building wall, banning people based on their religion and turning against each other, well, this
is new york. and
we know better. >> i just got off the phone with a senior sanders advisor who tells me this race must be closer than the clinton campaign likes otherwise she wouldn't be spending all this money in new york with donald trump here. one more note. as for if debate, the sanders campaign has been calling for a debate before the new york primary. the clinton campaign is open to it but they have not yet agreed to it. >> all right jeff. let's turn to a little humor. james cordon, his first car pull karaoke special. jennifer lopez and the digital leonardo dicaprio. >> did you insure your butt for a million dollars. >> no. how could. >> well cbs has insured my --.
can i send one person a text on your phone? >> who? >> shall i text leonardo dicaprio. hey baby i'm kind of feeling -- >> no. >> i'm kind of feeling like i need to cut loose. any suggestions?

so donald trump is standing by his campaign manager, who is now charged with battery and allegedly grabbing and bruising a reporter at a campaign event. well, this morning cory lewandowski's attorney is saying he was responding to a perceived threat against mr. trump. let's discuss now donald trump's surrogate scottny nel hughes. also a national political commentator for radio networks and anna navarro. good morning both of you. plets play this and i'll ask you first scottie. do you see a perceived threat here? >> the perceived threat is i. i think we're going find out the full story. this is going to go to court. it has come out that ms. fields
had been warned twice by secret service she needed to step away from mr. trump. she then disregarded that and went aggressive towards mr. trump and touched his arm as he's now acknowledged. whether as the threat, i don't think it is a threat to either one of them. both are very nice people. very good. she's known for her aggressive journalism. in fact made her name being aggressive against matt damon. but she had been told twice and at that point cory stepped? >> anna, where is the perceived threat? do you see unhere? >> what i sere is an absurd situation, don. frankly a situation where i think tempers flared it. got out of control and a simple apology would have taken care of this probably at the beginning. it has now escalated into this, you know, circus where we have an arrest and a trialed in midst of a campaign. a presidential front runner being asked about it on tv, you know, coming out and smearing
michelle fields. you know, the entire thing is just more of this crazy circus atmosphere that surrounds the donald trump campaign. and the 2016 cycle. this is so hard to say you know what, i'm sorry, things got out of hand. i really shouldn't have tupd you but it happened in the heat of the moment. i'm sorry. that probably would have taken care of it. this is absurd. >> do you agree to anna's point that the trump campaign is now doubling down on this. would a simple apology just have sufficed? >> i agree. i think sugar helps better than salt. it would have been nice if cory said if it happened, i'm sorry. i also think if miss fields, who did disregard secret service -- there is something to be said. >> should she be charged? listen and you can discuss. here it is.
>> and by the way she was grabbing me. am i supposed to press charges against her? oh my arm is hurting. anderson my a rm is hurting me. it's never been the same. >> you suggested -- >> excuse me. excuse me. i didn't suggest. i tweeted. should i press charges? >> are you going to? >> i don't know. maybe i should. right? because you know what? she was grabbing me. and just so you understand, she was off base because she went through the secret service. she had a pep n in her hand whi secret service is not liking. >> scotty it is time to move on. >> this all just ads to the absurdity. >> you are shaking your head. >> i am. and mr. trump is calling it out as well. this is absurd all across the board. we need to show the prosecutor going against cory also happens to be on hillary's leadership
council in florida and donated to her in -- there is a wlot of aspects that are leading to this circus and does not help the overall picture in getting to nose knees candidates. >> the trump campaign is also accusing her of maybe embellishing a little bit or flat out lying. oh she never was tossed to the ground. you heard trump saying that. and saying she changed her story as well. this is her original statement from march 10, 2016. she said -- she was going after too trump to answer a question. trump acknowledged but before he could answer i was jolt eed backwards. i almost fell to the ground but was able to maintain my ambulance. nonetheless i was shaken. so anna navarro. here you have donald trump saying you know what, guess what, i may be filing some charges here. you have them accusing her of
embellishing or flat out lying or changing her statement. she responded saying everything is there in the video. so where do we go from here? what happens next? >> well i hope that somebody can turn the page on this riveting john grisham novel. and maybe maybe maybe we can start talking about the terrorism attacks that are going on all over the world. maybe we can talk about some of the policy issues. i think the problem here is that at some point this begins to turn off voters. it has been entertaining for a while. but we are now getting to crunch time. we are now down to three potential nominees on the republican side. three guys left. and, you know, in the last few months we've talked about really let's think about what we've been talking about. we've been talking about the size of men's body parts. we're been having a fight over who's wife is hotter. and now we've got, you know, this, you know, first year law
case being dissected on national tv 24/7. it is just kind of pattic. >> yes or no from both of you. should cory lewandowski will let go? >> of course. at the least suspended. >> scotty? >> absolutely not. he's done what people were not expecting. he's taken somebody and put him number one that people said was going to be dead in the water on arrival. >> wooelg see how it places out. over to you alisyn. >> europe still on high i letter as officials continue the massive man hunt for terror suspects in the brussels bo bombin bombings. how close are they getting them 36 p. because you believe in go. onward. today's the day. carpe diem. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief. the first is fast. the second lasts all day. we give you your day back.

>> i'm sorry. we're going to find a comfortable studio for you next time. but tara i think what carol is referring to is again the attacks on heidi cruz, where last ninety anderson cooper gave donald trump a chance to clarify or apologize. would you have preferred that donald trump apologize for that whole line of attack? ? >> i don't think he has anything to apologize for, to be perfectly honest. i think donald trump speaks his mind. i this i he says exactly what he wants to say. and if he wants to say i'm sorry he does apologize. if he doesn't, that's okay too. and it was quite funny when anderson asked him, do you ever ask for anything. and he says oh i apologized to my mom years ago for cussing. i think it's hilarious. and at the end of the day he's going to say what he wants to say and you can either like him, love him, hate him, dislike him, whatever you want to do. do i think he's stands his ground? oh he's definitely standing his ground on this one.

candidates had the -- a firm answer on that. and i'm not sure there is a firm answer at this point in time. >> tara, what did you think about the substance on that one? >> i really do think that the radicalization of muslims -- and donald trump is right. you know, what's happening in these mosques as a whole? are they i going in prayer or they going to concoct a plan? i don't know. i'm not muslim. i have no idea. and i have only a couple of muslim friend. and they are wonderful people. so do i think that we should literally categorize all muslims as terrorists? absolutely not. absolutely not. and i really do think that they should double down on this and really explain what their plan is to deal with that issue. >> carol -- >> i think it is funny. sorry. but i do think it is funny as
far as the polarization. talking about the party that can't decide an candidate and we're talking about polarizations within this particular issue. >> tara, you are pointing out a very irony rich moment. that is a very good point. >> right? >> we'll leave it there. you have both said great things. i want carol in from out of the cold. thank you so much. we'll check back as the election progresses. thanks so much ladies. >> our intrepid new reporter carol -- >> then she could get her -- >> i thought she was going to toss back to me. the "good stuff" is next. with extraordinary offers on the stylish, all-new rx... and the dynamic nx. ♪ this is the pursuit of perfection. whose long dayis sheldon setting up the news starts with minor arthritis pain and a choice. take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever
