2:00 am
>> not just by companies, but other cities and other states. "early start" continues right now. >> donald trump and the rnc in a secret meeting. what went on besides the waving behind closed doors. hillary clinton getting angry calling out bernie sanders for lying. in a few hours, world leaders meeting to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands ever terrorists. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm boris sanchez. 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. donald trump mounting a new defense why he told msnbc why women who get legal abortions should being punished. he later recanted that position. he told fox news later that night that he misspoke. he blames the way the question
2:01 am
was asked and edited. >> you have to hear the whole thing. this was a long convoluted question and it was drawn on the. if abortion was outlawed. the doctor that is doing the act is responsible for the act. not the woman. that's the way i've always felt. >> msnbc responded saying interview was not edited and played it in its entirety. trump is doing damage control. he met with the head of the republican party yesterday calling it a meeting of unity. sunlen serfaty has more. >> reporter: good morning, christine and boris. donald trump holding a secret meeting in washington, d.c. behind closed doors of the rnc headquarters. the meeting was about convention
2:02 am
rules and delegates. after the meeting, the chairman of the rnc saying it was a productive meeting about the state of the race. trudonald trump tweeting about meeting and he looks forward bringing the party together. in washington, trump put together a meeting of his national security team after a string of national security and foreign policy statements that some have called into question including his rivals like john kasich. >> it appears as though when he does these events and people press him he becomes unmoored. then has to figure out how to correct all of the mistakes he made. i have to tell you as commander in chief and leader of the free world, you don't get do overs. you need to get it right the first time. >> reporter: as you can see, john kasich really trying to capitalize on the recent
2:03 am
missteps and controversies of trump as not ready to be president. sunlen, thank you. to breakdown the battles on both sides of the aisle, let's bring in managing editor zach wolf. the secret meeting with the rnc, listen to how donald trump described how it went. >> we met with reince priebus and the staff and they're very good people. very actually terrific meeting, i think. it's a unity meeting. we're leading by a lot. we have far and away the most delegates. millions of votes more than anybody else than ted has or kasich has. we really, i think, they want to really discuss, you know, unity and i like discussing unity too. >> unity. in the republican party. whoa! that's something we have not seen in a long time.
2:04 am
>> yeah. that's what donald trump's talking about. let's be honest. they are in a mad dash for delegates. he may have votes from the primaries and caucuses. he needs to get 1,237 delegates. that's what everybody's going to be thinking about right now. the meeting had a lot to do with delegates and delegate rules and the byzantine party rules. >> zach, polls are looking like ted cruz is likely to take wisconsin. wisconsin is a barrier for trump to getting the 1,237 delegates. cruz up 42%. kasich is banking on a contested convention. he talked about that on ac 360 last night. >> ted cruz needs 90% of the delegates going forward to win.
2:05 am
that's not going to happen. trump needs 60%. that's not going to happen either. when delegates go to a convention and i have been at convention conventions. they get serious. one, who can win in the fall. i'm the only one who consistently beats hillary clinton. they feel the weight of the decision on their shoulders. they think who could actually run the country. who has the experience? who has the vision? who had success in the past. >> zach, seeing the republican party is so split with trump supporters and anti-trump movement. how realistic is kasich's strategy? does he believe the trump supporters will switch at the convention? >> there's this process where they are bound by certain votes and become unbound in later votes. it is not outside the realm of possibility. he was talking about how trump needs to win 60% of the votes. cruz needs to win 90% of the votes going forward to reach
2:06 am
1,237 number of delegates. kasich has to win 100% of the votes. it is mathematically impossible to get the votes before the convention. he is justifying his existence in the race. he won one state. the state where he happens to be governor. if he's going to do this, if he will emerge and shoot the moon here, it would have to be on the convention floor. >> let's talk about nuclear proliferation. we have 50 countries talking about terrorists and nuclear access and nuclear material and nuclear proliferation. we had donald trump at our town hall talking about south korea and japan to have their own nuclear weapons. i want to listen to what the white house spokesperson said yesterday about that idea. >> it would be catastrophic were the united states to shift its position and indicate we support somehow the proliferation of
2:07 am
nuclear weapons to additional countries. it flies in the face of decades of bipartisan national security doctrine. >> you know, japan saying we will not have nuclear weapons. it has a pacifist constitution and has since the day it was a victim of the nuclear attack here. what do you make of donald trump's world view on this subject and how it is ruffling feathers around the world? >> for my entire lifetime, the u.s. has been talking about non proliferation and now we are talking about proliferation. if you think about it, it is a remarkable thing for a candidate to suggest. you know, back to kasich, if he is going to make an argument he should be in the race, this foreign policy that trump is espousing is one he can make on
2:08 am
the convention floor. we need to think about it. what trump is saying is not part of the foreign policy reality, i think, that most people know. >> right. we want to switch sides and head to the democrats. zach, hillary clinton with a heated exchange with someone from greenpeace. set the table. at the end of the rally and she was approached by someone with a camera. here's the exchange. >> reject fossil fuel money in the future in your campaign? >> i am so sick -- i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about this. i'm sick of it. >> it has to be frustrating for hillary clinton at this point getting closer and closer to the nomination and sanders facing a steep climb not being able to pivot to the general election. >> you don't see that kind of emotion or candor coming from hillary clinton. you saw it on the rope line.
2:09 am
interesting moment. you know this all-important wisconsin primary and sanders to challenge her in her home state of new york. tensions are high on the democratic side. >> zach wolf, nice to see you this morning. thanks for getting up early. talk to you in a few minutes. jobs day in america. a big report due out this morning from the government. the economists predict 199,000 jobs created in march. that is a solid number, but lower than february's jump. the jobless rate expected to stay at 5%. the wages are expected to be at a 2.2% rate. we are watching the number deeper. people working part-time. those who want a full-time job, but can't find one. this is one area of the labor
2:10 am
market that shows why voters are worried about the economy. so many part-time jobs created. a bad read there could give talking points to the republicans. democrats would rally around a positive number of jobs added if that comes in strong. i'll be looking specifically at our people starting to reenter the labor market with the months of job creation. >> a lot of rich territory for talking points. >> twisting of reality. two brussels bombers on the loose and the paris attacking linked to them is no longer working with police. he is being extradited to france. we have details next. there were people who listened along the way. people who gave me options. kept me on track. and through it all, my retirement never got left behind. so today, i'm prepared for anything we may want tomorrow to be. every someday needs a plan.

>> i'm christine romans. donald trump cle donald trump clarified his position and told fox news maybe he misspoke. he said it was the way the question was asked and how it was edited. >> this was a long convoluted question and discussion. they just cut it out. frankly it was really convoluted. if in fact abortion was outl outlawed, the person performing the abortion, the doctor is responsible for the act. not the woman. that's the way i have always felt. >> a long intense conversation. msnbc says the interview was not edited and they played it in its entirety. now with four days to go, trump is doing damage control. he met with the head of the republican party calling it a meeting of unity. cnn's sunlen serfaty has the latest. >> reporter: good morning,
2:32 am
christine and boris. donald trump holding a secret meeting in washington, d.c. thursday behind closed doors at the rnc headquarters. sources telling cnn the meeting was about convention rules and delegates. after the meeting, the chairman of the rnc put out a statement saying it was a productive meeting of the state of the race and donald trump tweeting about the meeting calling it a nice meeting. saying he looks forward to bringing the party together. while in washington, donald trump convened a meeting of the newly formed national security team after a string of nation at security and foreign policy statements that some have called into question including his rivals like john kasich. >> it appears as though when he does these events and people press him, he becomes unmoored. then has to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to correct all the mistakes he made. i have to tell you as commander
2:33 am
in chief and leader of the free world, you don't get do-overs. >> reporter: you see kasich trying to capitalize on the missteps as trying to paint trump as not ready to be president. >> thank you. to help us break down the battles on both sides of the aisle, let's bring in digital editor zach wolf. a bit of radio silence from the trump campaign. the wave walking out of the rnc meeting. a >> we met with reince priebus and the staff. they're very good people. actually terrific meeting. it was a unity meeting. we have far and away the most delegates. millions more votes than anybody else than ted has or that kasich
2:34 am
has. we really, i think, they wanted to really discuss, you know, unity. i like discussing unity, too. >> he does like discussing unity. the question here is how realistic is it for the party to unify behind donald trump. reince priebus is confident the party will unify behind the eventual nominee. trump has flirted with a third party bid. >> all three candidates have walked back from the pledge to support the eventual nominee. of course, they could. all three had taken a pledge at the first debate. they walked that back. unity is something they need. trump meeting with the republicans yesterday. we're told a lot of the meeting had to do with delegates and convention rules. that will be an important thing as it becomes clear it will be hard for anyone and trump is in the lead. it will be hard for him to reach
2:35 am
the magic number of delegates. this could be fought out on the convention floor in cleveland. that is something we have not seen in a long time. >> let's talk about the polls in wisconsin. shows ted cruz leading in wisconsin. that's an important race coming up here. gains for ted cruz at 42%. a marquette law poll at 40%. you have john kasich with the comments last night on ac-360. listen. >> ted cruz needs about 90% of the delegates going forward to win. that's not going to happen. trump needs about 60%. that's not going to happen either. when delegates go to the convention and i have been at the convention. they get serious about two things. one, who can win in the fall. i am the only one who can consistently beat hillary clinton.
2:36 am
they begin to feel the weight on their shoulders and who can run the country. who has the experience? who has the vision? who had success in the past? >> how many times has team kasich been doing ballot math trying to figure out if there is a chance for him. is there a path for him to be president? >> he talked about how cruz needs almost 90% of the delegates and trump needs 60%. trump needs more than 100%. it is mathematically impossible for him to get the nomination before the convention. this is his only path. i think they've done a lot of delegate math. he won one state so far. his home state of ohio. a lot of people in the race early. as trump has missteps or odd policy proposals on nuclear weapons or has the stumble on abortion, kasich could come in and say he is the most electable. he could make the argument. it would be hard.
2:37 am
there will be tons of horse trading in the votes on ballots. >> zach, you mentioned nuclear proliferation. not an issue we expected to be in the canconservation of the campaign. trump saying countries like japan should arm themselves instead of the united states heavily invested in their defense. >> the last person to use nuclear would be donald trump. that's the way i feel. i think it is a horrible thing. the thought of it is horrible. i don't want to take anything off the table. we have to negotiate. there will be times when we will be in a very deep, very difficult, very horrible negotiation. the last person, i'm not going to take it off the table. i said it yesterday. i stay with it. >> the white house has come out blasting these remarks. here's a bit of that. >> it would be catastrophic were
2:38 am
the united states to shift its position and indicate we support the proliferation of nuclear weapons to additional countries. it flies in the face of decades of national security doctrine. >> zach, this non traditional point of view of trump, how does this play with voters? >> i think we have to see. you saw the numbers in wisconsin. the recent polling shows him behind there. who knows why that is. it does play into the idea, i think, as people get closer, they have to look at these things he said. u.s. foreign policy for so long has been to try to get rid of nuclear weapons. to get other countries to have fewer nuclear weapons because it is in the world interest to have fewer nuclear weapons. taking a step back saying it's okay for other countries to have them. it's a strange thing to hear. >> can we talk about hillary clinton in this moment? the moment of -- i don't know
2:39 am
what the word is. some people say she lost her cool. some people say very sharp words. she was confronted by an activist and she was pointed and angry about bernie sanders' lying. listen. >> reject fossil fuel money in your campaign? >> i have money from people that work for fossil fuel. i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about me. i'm sick of it. >> she has been dogged by this story line for months. he's the guy with $27 on average donation from real people. she is in the pocket of rich people and the status quo way of raising money. >> that exchange was specifically about people who work for oil and gas companies. she is accusing the sanders campaign, i think it was a greenpeace participant that
2:40 am
asked that question. i don't know if it got under her skin or calculated explosion. it is interesting to see her have that reaction and kind of boil over like that. coming into wisconsin and her home state of new york, she's really trying to secure some momentum after his string of wins on the west coast. >> interesting to see her get almost exacerbated. she was interrupted during the rally. it will be interesting to see. zach, thank you. >> have a great weekend. 40 minutes past the hour. time for an early start on your money. dow futures lower on the first trading day of april and second quarter. oil is falling. clawed back some losses. we will watch to see if the stocks turn around. stocks in europe are down. investors have closed the books on a wild first quarter. check out the v-shaped dive and recovery for the dow in the quarter. the initial drop 10% in february as oil prices crashed.
2:41 am
concerns about china grew and how quickly the fed would raise interest rates. oil started rising. the stocks followed suit. in the end, 92% of the investors made money in march. according to our partners at openfolio. patience always pays in the stock market. >> it does. we will see how it responds to the jobs report. >> 8:30. the manhunt for two brussels bombers ongoing. authorizes trying to get information out of this man connected to the brussels and paris attacks. more on that next. credit score?"

2:46 am
captured him last month following a shootout in molenbe molenbeek. all of this will investigators are searching for the two brussels bombers. we have cnn's alex field with the latest. do we have any information on the search for the suspects? >> reporter: boris, the authorities have not come out with more information on the bombing suspects. they continue to hunt for those suspects and at the same time, salah abdeslam, the most wanted man in connection with the paris attacks, returns to france. france has been waiting for that and it is something that salah abdeslam had been fighting. he initially said he did not want to be extradited. he was cooperating with authorities initially, by after brussels attacks, he stopped cooperating and wanted to be
2:47 am
extradited to france. investigators are looking into the possibility that members of the terror cell that carried out the brussels and paris attacks may have been eyeing the possibility of wanting to create dirty bombs. that comes after the investigators find video of surveillance footage of the top nuclear researchers. we spoke to analysts and they say it is possible that the suspects were watching this person and hatching a far fetched plan to kidnap the person in order to force access to radioactive materials to create a dirty bomb. would they have been able to pull this off? the people we spoke to said they don't think they would have had the capability to do that. the nuclear sites are well secured. areas where radioactive materials are stored are heavily secured. it does, boris, underscore the point that isis is eyeing the nuclear sites and could have interest in nuclear sites and isis militants in the past, in
