chaos and violence at the california gop convention just ahead of a speech by donald trump. trump now taking to twitter, calling the protesters, quote, thugs and criminals. >> and new information into the investigation into prince's death. we now know emergency calls were made to his paisley park
7:01 am
compound as far back as 2013. >> to call this horrific is an understatement. >> two toddlers found chained in the back yard of a home in san antonio. one of them is in the intensive care unit this morning. authorities say they're grateful they found these children before it was too late. you're in the cnn newsroom. hello, it's the weekend. i'm ana cabrera in for christi paul. >> and i'm victor blackwell. donald trump weighing in on twitting about the angry mob some people call it outside the gop venue where he spoke. jumping up this little wall, up
7:02 am
the en bancembankment. >> trump called ted cruz a cheat, saying he might bribe his way into the nomination. >> he has no path to victory. it's impossible for him to win with the votes. the only way he can possibly win is if things go terribly wrong and he goes through the back door and he bought all of these delegates. i i would never use the word bribe. i would never use a word like bribe so if he bribes the delegates but i don't call bribe. >> jason, before we take a look ahead today, we've got to look at what happened thursday night in cosa mesa, yesterday where
7:03 am
you are in burlingame. and places where donald trump is showing up. >> reporter: hundreds of demonstrators showing up at this hyatt here. they blockeds street and the entrance. you have some of the gop insiders trying to come in to listen to policy and listen to trump speak. but they're met by riot gears, protesters blocking trump's motorcade. secret service had to get him out of his car and walk through a field to get inside. trump making a joke about it. >> that is not the easiest entrance i ever made. my wife called and said there
7:04 am
are helicopters following you. we went through a field and then through a fence. i felt like i was crossing the border. they said, mr. trump, it would be really much easier, sir, if you didn't speak today and left and go back immediately to indiana. i said, you know, we can't let these people down. right? do you agree? we can't do it. but i appreciate it. but it was fun. it was a little different. that was a different kind of a thing. >> trump also tweeting about what happened out here yesterday. he tweeted this morning the protesters in california were thugs and criminals, many are professionals, they should be dealt strongly by law enforcement. also yesterday trump did mention the word unity here at the state gop convention. he said there should be a need for more friendship, unity, people coming together. i spoke to some here in the room about that.
7:05 am
many people thought he struck it right tone here yesterday at the convention but there are also a number of people here, victor, who said he missed an opportunity, he should have talked more about unity and bringing the party together. trump telling voters in indiana, 57 delegates up for grabs in the state of indiana. he said if we can win there, this will all be over. certainly it won't be over until june 7th. 172 delegates up for grabs right here in the state of california. >> jason carroll for us there in burlingame, california. >> tonight in los angeles, another small private memorial will be held to remember prince. and then on monday a court hearing will start to sort out what happens to his estimated $300 million estate. this could be a complicated process because prince's sister says he did not leave behind a will. we go live to minnesota. sarah, this is all coming as we're learning more about an
7:06 am
earlier medical call to the estate. >> reporter: yeah, there were four calls over the past three years that were for medical assistance that came from the paisley park compound. we should be clear that of those the last call was the call saying that prince had died in the elevator. and we're hearing now from investigators, sources telling us that there was actually opioid-based pain medication on his person when he was found and investigative person telling us they found pain medication inside of his home. as for the three other medical calls we were able to ascertain from the sheriff's department, we still don't know exactly what those were for. we just know medical assistance was called in from the paisley park address to his compound. lots of people would go into his compound. he would have public dance parties were people were invited to come in and have a good time.
7:07 am
it doesn't necessarily mean that it had anything to do with prince himself. there were 47 calls in total to law enforcement, service calls, from paisley park over the past five years. many of them were for innocuous things like suspicious activity. >> all right, thank you so much. >> much more ahead on "new day," including donald trump's attacks against hillary clinton and what she's now saying in response. also, what does trump do now about uniting the party? what is his message? we mentioned a moment ago it was a bit muddled. you'll hear it. >> also, a disturbing story out of texas, a report of two toddlers tied up like dogs behind the home. >> and prescription drugs, how dangerous they can be and a new federal campaign to get them off the streets across the country. , you can talk to a real person in the u.s., like me, anytime. wow. this is a recording.

7:12 am
have been handed out by the trump campaign. he called jeb bush low energy. it stuck. he dropped out. he called marco rubio little rubio and then he jumped out. and he calls ted cruz lyin' ted. is clinton making the most effective strategy by brushing these off? >> hillary clinton is about uniting our country, not about dividing our country. she's not about personal insults. i think what she is doing is explaining how she can make america better for everyone in our country and unite our country. she's a very strong lady, a very resilient lady but she also a very classy lady and i don't expect her to be doing that. her surrogates are different. i can come out and say we got trash talkin' trump again. but the fact of the matter that's what it's going to be.
7:13 am
we have quite an election. >> donald trump has been very critical, in the last few days saying she's playing the woman card, it all she has. this is what trump has said about clinton in the past. let's watch and then we'll talk. >> i think she's been through more than any woman should have to bear, everything public. woman go through this on a private basis and can't tack it. i think she's a wonderful woman. >> a wonderful woman. putting aside qualifications and her work in washington and arkansas, how does the campaign square that donald trump with the one who's on the campaign trail now? >> and just think a few months ago she called mr. trump a sexist and a misogynist. how do you square that? mr. trump always says nice things about people because he's good person and then he's critical of them when they deserve criticism.
7:14 am
let me be clear, just because you criticize a woman, it doesn't make you a sexist. the entire country knows mrs. clinton is very familiar with men who go off the reservation and men who have very poor behavior. she have running on the gender card because she doesn't want to run on her record. that's what mr. trump is talking about. >> so the suggestion is that the only qualification she has to not only win the nomination but to become the next president of the united states is that she is a woman? is that the case? >> mr. trump is saying that she's using the woman card to run because she doesn't want to run on her, quote unquote, qualifications. she doesn't want to run off being secretary of state and the crisis that gave birth to isis. she doesn't want to run on --
7:15 am
>> wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. you're connecting hillary clinton to the abduction of the girls in nigeria? >> well, what i'm talking about is on the campaign trail today she's talking about bokaharam when she could have done something about that. >> it reminds me of billy jean king against bobby riggs. billy jean came with great skill and great ability and bobby riggs came with a big mouth and trash talking. and we know what happened there,
7:16 am
billy jean beat him bad. we know what donald trump is bringing to the table. he's bringing something dangerous, deficient and something very disrespectful to the american people. whether it's african-americans, hispanics or women. his numbers of disapproval are so high, he's building a wall, building a wall against the republican pear. >> -- republican party. >> there's now a tangible woman card on sale for donations for the clinton campaign. is there a risk of overplaying this opposition? >> i think it very clear, secretary clinton is not overplaying it. her experience, her ability, her history, she has the qualifications. we all know that. donald trump can be the i inherited $300 million from my daddy card, if you you'd like,
7:17 am
and i pretend to be a billionaire. he could bring that card as well but he chooses not to. >> had is what donald trump said yesterday in california about the ability to unite the party moving into the general election. >> i speak to the people in this room because there has to be unity in our party. there should be and there has to be unity. now, with that being said, would i win? can i win without it? i think so, to be honest. i think so because they're going to vote for me. >> so he starts the sentence by saying that there has to be unity in the party, but i really don't need it. donald trump in the past has said that moving into the general election, he would and could unite the party. why this vacillation now? >> first i want to say that mr. trump is an actual ceo and does bring that to the table because he's created tens of thousands of jobs for the working class, not the transnational banks like
7:18 am
goldman sachs. but, yes, mr. trump has always said we do need unity in the republican party but he's not going to force anybody to vote for him. he said that several times before. he is in a position right now where he is ahead in the popular vote, set to break the record in republican primary turnout, has over a thousand delegates and you still have a faction of the party who don't want to get behind him. he's simply saying, look, we are going to win, we are going to unify, even if that faction doesn't come together and we're going to bring hillary in november. and even bernie sanders supporters are coming over to our side. >> that's pretty funny. bernie sanders are coming over? >> it happened into in iowa, too. >> let me ask you about the fear that mr. trump will attract those democrats. in pennsylvania more than 90,000 democrats and independents
7:19 am
registered as republicans to vote in that primary. >> i can tell you this, the chance that bernie sanders supporters backing donald trump are as good as donald trump getting mother teresa as his running mate. >> it already happened. z >> it not happening at all. >> the longer trump stays in the race and the longer he is there and the longer his rhetoric continues, the more bernie sanders folks that are joining hillary right now. whether you're african-american, hispanic or you're a woman or you want real change in america, you're not voting for donald trump. he represents the 1%, the inherited class. >> which is why we have so many blue collar workers voting for mr. trump. >> thank you both, guys. >> thank you. >> don't miss jake tapper's exclusive interview with hillary clinton sunday on state of the union. ted cruz is on the show as well. the candidates join jake tapper
7:20 am
on "state of union" tomorrow morning. >> a horrific discovery in texas, two toddlers, just 3 and 4 years old found caned ahanged tied up in the back yard. and rescuers trying to find as many people as they can from this rubble of a building collapsed in kenya. one coat, yes! ♪ there is a day, for every number. ♪ ♪ there is a time, for all my slumbers. ♪ ♪ and i can see, that i can't run and hide. ♪ one coat guaranteed marquee interior. behr's most advanced paint. come find our top rated paints, only at the home depot.

7:24 am
terrible news out of texas. a 64-year-old grandmother and her four grand chchildren died overnight, swept away in floodwaters. their bodies were found some distance from their home. >> severe weather continues across the south. it's going to areas that have already had too much. >> many of these areas have already had their wettest area on april and now we're adding more rein. this is the estimated rainfall for the last 24 hours. notice dallas, houston and basically all the areas east of it. notice one particular spot about
7:25 am
halfway between both cities, called palestine, texas. they received 7 inches of rein in one hour, which is why they had such rapid flooding. some of these other areas, detroit, texas, impressive numbers but theirs were over a couple of hours, so theirs was significant enough that they didn't have as significant flooding as palestine did. the rains are continuing to slowly trail over the same spots. forecast rainfall accumulations are expected to dump at least an additional 2 to 4 inches widespread but some areas could get an addition an 6 inches of rain. >> thank you so much. >> another heart breaking story out of texas, this time in san
7:26 am
antonio where two toddlers were found tied up outside like dogs. the woman believed to be responsible has been charged but the story doesn't end there. >> to call this horrific is an understatement. >> reporter: sheriff deputies near san antonio, texas shocked at what they found after a neighbor called to report hearing a child crying. >> the little boy was chained to the ground. the little girl was tied up with a dog leash to the door. >> deputies climbed over a fence to free the 2-year-old boy and 3-year-old girl. >> it was obvious they had been there for a while. there was obvious signs of abuse. our deputies quickly freed them and rushed them to the children's hospital of san antonio where they are receiving care right now.
7:27 am
>> reporter: that was only the beginning. inside, ranging in ages from 6 months to 10 years. the mother, porschia phillips, is now being held in county jail. the father has not yet been charged. >> it's disgusting, it's sad. it's unbelievable. >> reporter: child protective services were called in. the toddlers are said to be recovering, though the girl is in intensive care. neighbors are simply stunned. >> it was shocking. especially something happening across the street and we didn't know it or see it. >> it's pretty sad they have to go through that. i don't understand why parents take kids if they can't take care of them. >> six kid are clear from foster care but authorities are not
7:28 am
finished with this case. >> we'll use every ounce of our energy to make sure that they are held account and these children are never hurt like this again. >> still ahead, former president bill clinton soon will appear at the pancake fund-raiser, flipping some flapjacks in indiana. ♪ try your favorite ranch with a fresh taste so crisp, you'll be surprised it doesn't crunch. hidden valley cucumber ranch. just one of our delicious ranch flavors. ♪ (music pl♪ throughout) uh oh. what's up? ♪

♪ ♪ does nobody use a turn signal anymore? ♪ people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. vo: victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes
7:30 am
when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin

7:32 am
>> live pictures here from kokomo, indiana, where the local democrat being party was hoping a surrogate from hillary clinton's campaign would come to its pancake breakfast fund-raiser. they're getting a pretty high level surrogate. the former president himself, bill clinton, as surrogates go it doesn't get much better than that for that campaign. we're expecting to see him very soon. maybe he'll flip a few pancakes and speak to the audience this morning. if he does, real try to take that to you. let's stay with the clinton campaign. hillary clinton poised for strong showing in the hoosier state on tuesday. that would put her on the threshold of becoming the democratic nominee. let's talk about the democratic race on tuesday. with me now, chairman of the indiana democratic party. good morning, john. >> good morning. thanks for having me on. >> let's start with the "indiana
7:33 am
star," and handing out their endorsements. essentially it's none of the above. they didn't choose anyone. they start with bernie sanders saying he has shown little aptitude for serving as commander in chief or in international relations. he's simply not prepared to lead the nation. and they share the love for hillary clinton. they say hillary clinton is the stronger of the two and has a deep resumé, but she also is hobbled by serious concerns about her judgment and ethics. your reaction to that? >> well, this is a long campaign i think. secretary clinton and senator sanders have both shown they have a lot of stamina on the campaign trail and have been talking about substantive issues. when we look to the other side, the remaining three candidates are talking about each other,
7:34 am
rather than what they would do for the country. >> former secretary clinton and in some respect donald trump are now looking toward the general lek. let's look toward november. indiana went blue but barely for president obama back in 2008. look at the numbers here. we say 50% but it was 49.9 to 49.0. >> narrow win. >> really narrow win. in 2012, mitt romney pulled out a 10-point plus win over president obama. how do you put indiana back into the democrats' column? >> we're seeing all kinds of new energy in the party. one thing that's important, no matter how this goes on tuesday, whether it's secretary clinton or senator sanders, that one of my jobs is to make sure people can be involved in the process. we need to make sure until tuesday that people are given the best information, the right information on where to vote, if
7:35 am
they haven't already taken part in the early vote process. so as we move down the road and on the campaign, we hope, the campaigns if they're not here will have a strong showing nationwide. indiana can go blue. elections are won in the middle. you've got the left or the right but indiana voters are common sense voters and they'll vote for the candidate that will do the best job for them and i think the next president of the united states will be a democrat. >> chairman of the indiana democratic party, thanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> and we're still watching that event in kokomo, where former president bill clinton will be speaking to the party. if he comes out, we'll try to dip into that for you. >> you just like to say kokomo. >> i also like to say pancake breakfast. >> that sounds good to me today. >> let take a serious turn today, something we've been
7:36 am
talking a lot about, the take back of prescription medication and the number of overdoses are skyrocketing in the country. >> why one dea agent says you have the equivalent of a drug cartel in your house. and we'll take you on the streets where agents are busting dealers. 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 i need to keep organized,ause anything that makes my life easier, i'm using. "hey cortana, remind me we have a play date tomorrow at noon" i need that in my world.
7:37 am
7:38 am
the possibility of a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc.
7:39 am
to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. four out of five people that end up addicted to heroin start
7:40 am
with prescription pain killers. this is a growing concern in the u.s. the united states consumes 80% of the world's pain killers and we only have 5% of the world's population. the number of opioid overdoses is also up four times what it was in the year 2000. this morning one dea agent fighting this problem summed it up like this: >> we're the dea, we attack drug cartels from mexico, that's our primary work. unfortunately there's cartels in each and every medicine cabinet if we don't get it and get it out of the house. a number of first-time users get it from someone they know or from a medicine cabinet. >> so what is it like to fall into that addiction and how do you fight your way out of it? just justin started at 8 years old.
7:41 am
how did yound up addicted to drugs at such a young age if. >> though i might not have felt good enough, it is most important to lift up that people just like me all over the country, they can and do recover. the most important to underscore isn't so much why it happened but what happens when you believe in young people and you equip them and empower them to change their communities. >> just to give us some background, what happened? what is your story? >> so my story is like millions all around the country, i tried to look to fill that hole in the soul with alcohol and drugs, along with being successful in school and getting good grades and successful in sports.
7:42 am
>> do you feel like the services to help people like yourself are adequate? >> you know, that's one thing i think we can all agree on is that there are several ways to recover, whether it's using helpful resources like preventi prevention, treatment or many pathways to recovery. the underfunding is catastrophic need that exists. we need to equally fund recovery support services to make sure things like our young people in recovery chapters or things like the association of recovery schools and their schools exist all over the country. >> i understand you yourself have gone in and out of rehab over the years six or seven times. i know you've been clean for almost a deck add now, congratulations. but it must be really difficult to get clean. help us understand. >> you know, the most difficult part for me was believing that
7:43 am
everyone around me, whether it was mentors, parents, professionals, peers, it was believing what they told me was possible for me. it wasn't -- the most difficult thing was believing in myself. fortunately so many people in my community rallied around me and said i can, just like they did, i can recover. >> you're trying to chip away at this problem one person at a time. you run an organization called young people in recovery. right now we have a spotlight on opiate drug abuse, especially among the youth. is it a matter of keeping these drugs out of their hands? what do you think is the solution? >> for me the solution is not as one size fit all as it may be. this it -- very important
7:44 am
things, employment, housing, education and other times of mentoring and peer programs, those are things that not just help people emerging in their early recovery journey, those are things that make this country amazing. we're creating jobs, buying homes, bettering ourselves through education. those are things that we have to as a nation go all in on and make sure that the real epidemic at hand doesn't happen, which would be that we stop believing that i don't think people are the future and they are changing culture in this country for the better. >> you are a success story in itself. thank you so much, justin riley, for speaking with us. >> victor? >> sometimes it starts with pills in a medicine cabinet and leads to heroin. next, we'll take you out on the streets where agents are targeting drug dealers and
7:45 am
trying to stop the overwhelming number of drug doses. >> and the white house correspondents dinner tonight. who is going and who is skipping it? >> sheldon smith grew up without a steady dad in his life. he became a young father himself at age 21 and now he is a role model for other young fathers, helping them stay involved in their children's lives. >> i grew up broke and i was hau perfect but was able to overcome all of these things. what i want for these young man is to be involved and engaged in their children's life, to give their children what i missed as a boy, which was a great father, someone who would be there for me and give me the advice that i need to be a successful young man today. >> you can watch sheldon's full story on and while you're there, you can nominate someone who you think should be

battling using a holistic approach in some communities, in part healing the people and the neighborhoods impacted. of course a major part of that is getting the drugs off the street. recently i rode around with atlanta police as they took their fight to one of the longest operating heroin markets in america. an early morning drug raid in downtown america. undercover investigators have bought heroin from this man, known on the street as bean. >> they just completed the primary sweep and they found the man they were looking for, their target here, and also who they believe is his girl friend. they did not find anyone else inside this home. now they're going to start to look for the heroin here and any potential legal weapons. that's that secondary sweep beginning right now. >> reporter: the bust is part of the justice department's
