tv   CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin  CNN  May 2, 2016 11:00am-1:01pm PDT

11:00 am
thanks very much for your excellent work for us, as well. i'll be back 5:00 p.m. eastern in "the situation room." but the news tonights right now right here on cnn. here we go. watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. thank you for tuning in on this montd afterno monday afternoon. we'll listening for ted cruz from an event of ft. wayne, indiana. of course, on the eve of what many observers call a make or break event for him in the race for president. the indiana primary, tomorrow. 57 critical republican delegates up for grabs and the texas senator, he needs every single one of them and then some. he needs the momentum of a win after the recent losses in the northeast and even senator cruz has pumped up how important indiana is to him. come paining with the state's
11:01 am
governor today but a new poll shows ted cruz losing in indiana by a whopping 15 points to you guessed it, donald trump. and check out moments ago what cruz had to face on the campaign trail. a wall of donald trump supporters. >> i'm running to be everyone's president. those that don't vote for me. >> we don't want you. >> that's -- >> your turn to drop out. >> well, i'm curious. >> lying ted. >> what do you like about donald trump? >> everything. >> give me one. >> everything. >> cnn sunlen serfaty is there. can you tell after weeks, strings of losses, tomorrow's a huge day for them. is there a tone change at all? >> reporter: there absolutely is, brooke.
11:02 am
coming from the candidate himself, you sense in the last final hours here in indiana he is really speaking in much more dire terms of what tomorrow means and ratcheting up the rhetoric. you know, saying tomorrow if donald trump wins here it could be all but decided who the nominee is. so really trying to make sure that he gets his voters out to the polls and kind of amping up his rhetoric. i think it's very notable, you know, that the cruz campaign has really called in their whole contingent of supporters, governor pence here in indiana. he's campaigning with carly fiorina. his wife out on the campaign trail, too. putting everything they have got into this state. and senator cruz has been, you know, really faced with beating back questions not only from reporters but notably from his voters just a few minutes ago one of the campaign trail stops one of the voters he spoke to said, look, donald trump is ahead of you, man. kind of like questioning what
11:03 am
are you doing here? he said i don't think the polls are accurate. certainly, it is significant that many of the polls show him well behind donald trump here in a state where he knows he needs to win. brooke? >> watching and waiting for him and the governor there in indiana. mo moan tearily for now. sunl sunlen, thank you. ted cruz put the pressure on himself to perform in indiana. hitting the trail there for weeks and donald trump has also really has a lot at stake among the hoosiers. listen to both of the candidates. let's continue on. joining me now, editor in chief of the hill. tanner gerts and a senior adviser to the trump campaign and bob barr. welcome to all of you. >> hey, brooke. >> thank you. >> a fellow georgian on the panel, let's begin with you. you heard sunlen say it's zaire
11:04 am
for the cruz camp. what happens if senator cruz loses what he has called a must-win state? >> of course, there's more than one scenario here. there's 57 total delegates up for grabs tomorrow in indiana but they're going to be largely apportioned by congressional districts and not as cut and dry as some of the prognosticators would have you believe. senator cruz traveling and working the state at the grassroots level many, many weeks. traveling now with the state's popular governor mike pence and carly fiorina. the internal polling that we have seen, that i have seen, has it very close but we feel very confident that senator cruz will win and do very well across the state and certain areas in particular in congressional districts. sufficient to, you know, keep up the momentum that he saw this past weekend with some of the state conventions and caucuses
11:05 am
to continue on to the next big prize on the west coast. >> the congressman is right. winner take all in the different districts. so, you know, cruz teem could steal some of the delegates of mr. trump. how do you see it? do you see it as closely as the cruz team does? >> no. absolutely not. we definitely are very confident and confidence is a great thing. i'm happy that the cruz camp is confident. but the trump campaign is very, very confident. we have all the faith in the world in the people -- of the people in indiana and we know that they're hard working and we know they're very excited about voting for donald trump who will create jobs and make the economy so much better and we're very excited and we expect it to be a huge victory just like it was last tuesday. >> what about, bob cusack, to you, my neutral voice on all of this. we talked about contested convention in cleveland and the headlines over the weekend in
11:06 am
"the new york times" about the delegates, right? the fact i believe the phraseology is softening for trump. changing their minds coming to the cruz camp hoping for a second ballot at a contested convention. you know, perhaps feeling the pressure of the popular vote to donald trump. what do you know about that? >> well, i think over the last couple of months at first you saw the establishment kind of warm to donald trump and then said, no, it's better if maybe cruz wins and now i think shifting back. why? because he's winning. swept all five states and looking like the favorite now, clear favorite in indiana. ted cruz is clutch. he won iowa. had to win wisconsin. he won wisconsin. trump has the momentum. i think as cruz alluded to, this is make or break for ted cruz and the knockout punch that ted cruz wants to deliver and waiting to and might deliver it tomorrow. >> you know, a lot of people
11:07 am
respect former republican and presidential hopeful and former utah governor john huntsman. this is a quote. we have enough intraparty fighting. now's the time to stitch together a winning coalition and it's been clear almost from the beginning that donald trump has the ability to assemble a nonnational bloc of supporters. you will say the cruz campaign fighting tooth and nail to pull it out at a contested convention but what if ted cruz is the spoiler here? >> what he will become and we feel very confident that going into the convention in cleveland, neither he nor mr. trump will have amassed a majority of the delegates which is according to the rules and procedure absolutely essential so ted cruz is not going to be a spoiler. what he is going to do is to continue to marshal his resources to continue to
11:08 am
convince delegates and voters at the grassroots level that the consistent conservative message that he brings is far better for this party and will, in fact, be far stronger against hillary clinton who poll after poll show beating mr. trump in the fall. >> you bring that up. thank you. i wanted to ask about the hypotheticals with a hillary clinton versus trump scenario. i mean, you know, you can already tell on the democratic side, even though bernie sanders said, listen, he's going to philadelphia, hillary clinton is really starting to pivot to the general. tanna, what does the trump campaign need to do to change that because he's losing in the hypotheticals against the former secretary of state? >> well, i mean, hillary doesn't really have an opponent. she is doing so well against bernie. >> bernie sanders would disagree with you. >> i know. but i mean, you know, she is winning and she is crushing the elections on their side so well.
11:09 am
so, you know, one woman race on her side. we still have, well, half, one and a half men in the race we have to compete against and we need to win indiana. that's the focus right now is winning indiana. we have competitors that teamed up, formed the alliance and in my opinion was a failed alliance and our focus is indiana right now. we are not looking at the general election just yet, we have to make the people of indiana proud. we have got bobby knight and all those people that surrounded us and gotten 100% behind mr. trump in the last four rallies he has and we are completely dedicated and focused and show the american voters in the states what mr. trump will do for them. that's the focus and priority right now. as we move closer and we know that he is the nominee, more than happy to share with you what we're going to do in regards to hillary clinton. >> okay. talking about, though, the
11:10 am
general election, bob cusack, a final question. "the new york times" over the weekend asking prominent republicans, would you sign on to, would you consider running on mr. trump's ticket? met with a resounding, no thanks. senator graham always with the zingers. this is what the senator told msnbc. quote, if you vote for trump as a republican you are buying a ticket on the titanic. but, bob, i mean, if trump is going to be the guy on the republican side, wouldn't the republican party want their best foot forward on that ticket to take it all the way to the white house? >> well, i think some, brooke, but some republicans like graham are already thinking about 2020 and think that he has no shot to win. this is going to be donald trump's challenge if he is the nominee. unify the party. some people will get behind donald trump that maybe wouldn't have thought they would a few months ago but then there are others like graham, kristol that will be never trump and never trump means never.
11:11 am
that's going to be the next phase i think for donald trump is unifying most of this party and putting the spotlight on hillary clinton and from the republican standpoint, okay, let's unify against her. see if that argument works. >> okay. again, watching and waiting to see the texas senator ted cruz speaking in ft. wayne. i want to play as we're a day before the all-important indiana primary, listen to donald trump speaking moments ago in indianapolis. >> which does mean a lot. and, you know, that's very exciting to me. there's a lot of states left and history of republican party, i'll have the all-time record. %-p? >> i don't know anything about it. i heard he endorsed me. i don't know anything about his trial. i really don't. >> why was bobby knight -- endorse you -- representative of -- >> well, i think bobby knight's enthusiasm is to see indiana and the country win again. he's an amazing competitor.
11:12 am
he's a really smart guy and a really tough guy and bobby knight, so enthusiastic, he wants to see the country win again. >> thank you. >> and he knows it's going to run. if i'm involved, we're going to win. we'll bring back our jobs and not lose jobs like we are right now because everyone is leaving our country. and that's sad. >> interesting he brings up bobby knight. infamous basketball coach. known for tossing chairs and beloved especially among a number of hoosiers. it's interesting to see the endorsement that matters, the governor or bobby knight supporting this man, donald trump. remember, by the way, thanks to bob, tana and bob for that. tomorrow indiana primary tomorrow. special live coverage here on cnn begins at 4:00 eastern. meantime, coming up, more from that tense face to face encounter between ted cruz and those donald trump supporters in indiana.
11:13 am
>> so why do you support trump? >> second amendment's my main thing. he's the only one. that guy says he's going to take care of it. he'll let them take everything we got from us. >> could republicans have their nomination locked up before the democrats? senator bernie sanders making a bold prediction declaring there will be a contested convention. he is holding a rally minutes from now. hillary clinton mobiling the campaign and pivoting toward november and the general election. also, five years ago, president brack braarack obama order to kill osama bin laden. cnn now goes one on one with the president of the united states for a rare interview in the white house situation room. do not miss this. i'm brooke baldwin. you're watching cnn. your heart loves omega-3s.

11:18 am
you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. indiana, indiana. saying this all the next two hours. big primary tomorrow. bernie sanders also sfoupposed take to the stage in ft. wayne, indiana. he says he'll win the primary. vowing he won't back down despite trailing hillary clinton more than 700 pledge and super delegates. >> it's virtually impossible for secretary clinton to reach the majority of convention delegates by june 14th with pledged delegates alone. the convention will be a contested contest. >> still, despite that, former secretary of state hillary clinton is looking past her rival. she's focusing now on donald trump looking ahead to a general election matchup. jeff zellny is standing by there. jeff, i mean, we have heard that
11:19 am
bernie sanders camp for a while say, listen, we are going all the way to july. doubling down on that. is he really banking on secretary clinton not reaching the magic number of delegates? >> reporter: a couple of things here. it is bernie sanders right to go to the end of the process. a lot of supporters want him to do that. he's getting big crowds across indiana. having a very big rally i'm told tonight here in indianapolis. innocent a short time in ft. wayne. but the translation here of hillary clinton not having the majority of the delegates is this. you -- in the democratic party rules, you combine the regular pledge delegates with super delegates, party officials who vote here and secretary clinton is almost certain to have those. in fact, she'll likely have them in a couple weeks or so and back to 2008, that come pain we all watched so carefully, barack obama did not have a majority of pledge delegates alone.
11:20 am
he got pledge and super delegates. bernie sanders is wrong saying it's a contested convention. he can raise that issue there. hillary clinton by all accounting will have a majority of pledged and super delegates here so the party is still going to sort of fight and work this out here and it is different than we are seeing on the republican side. hillary clinton is just shy about 200 delegates or so of magic number of 2,383 and so, so tough for bernie sanders. he could win here in indiana and do well in the states coming up but mathematically speaking it is very, very tough for him. >> thank you for spelling that out for us, and down to math as we well know. jeff zeleny, thank you. john avalon, happy monday. happy math monday. >> happy monday. >> that's what i want to get straight to it. so glad jeff sort of spelled it
11:21 am
out. even though bernie sanders maybe sort of a sense of what you wish will happen will come true that hillary clinton won't get the remaining 200 and therefore he will have that contested convention in philadelphia, if that's not really a possibility, why is he out there saying that? >> because he's trying to keep hope alive as jesse jackson might have said in another time. hope is not a strategy. you can't slice and dice the numbers however you like an say, well, she is not going to hit the numbers because they exist. you can't just pretend they don't. look. he is always running to move forward a progressive agenda inside the democratic party. he's been very effective at harnessing that and creating a debate about issues and moving hillary clinton to the left. the question now will be at the convention, how's that played out in the rules, in the policies and the platforms adopted by the democratic party? you can't spend your way to
11:22 am
saying this is a stronger position than he is and you look like baghdad bob at some point and, so you know, we'll see quhaps in indiana. it is too close to say for sure how this goes down. we have seen michigan polls be dramatically off and has to hope for a big win or the math is off. >> keeping hope alive. bernie sanders is thinking july. hillary clinton thinking november. we are now seeing her camp pivoting moving some of her teams into the key general election states that have swung between republicans and democrats in recent cycles. what states are in play, john, should it be a donald trump/hillary clinton matchup? >> well, look. historical swing states are pretty clear. looking at the last four cycles, you come down to north carolina, florida, ohio. out west you have got new mexico and colorado.
11:23 am
iowa, new hampshire. so it's spread all over the map but in many states republicans are a plurality and elections are won or lost by the candidate to appeal in swing states and both can't be concerned about shoring up their base. think need to build broad coalitions beyond their base and this means moving to the center whether the activist class in both parties like it or not. hillary clinton obviously her husband was known for reaching out to the center and realigning american politics and bringing the democrat party back to the center after being marginalized. you look at the policies and people to try to reach. donald trump begins under water with a lot of key demographics in the states he needs to win. he will if the primaries are any thing to judge by, make gains of white working class voters and could be offset by women and
11:24 am
independents. those are the real key things to look at. demographics, math, momentum. but now we're already hillary clinton realizes that her best case right now to bridge that enthusiasm gap is to start running against donald trump. >> and she is doing that. she's also as we have seen her on the debate stages meantime bear hugged president obama, keeping the momentum he cemented the years ago intact and made news at the naacp dinner over the weekend and here she was. >> we cannot let barack obama's legacy fall into donald trump's hands! we can't let all the hard work and progress we have achieved over the last seven and a half years be torn away. >> you know, this notion of obviously she's aligning herself with the president, but does that work for her? because there are many, many
11:25 am
people out there who do not have the love for hillary clinton, certainly ready to see president obama go. how difficult is that for her walking that line? >> well, look. she is not a position of some, you know, people trying to distance themselves from the incumbent. president obama is popular among the democratic base and the -- >> joking about that saturday night. popularity on the way out. >> yeah. and, you know, that is unusual. right? i mean, he turned the stereotype of the lame duck presidency on the head approaching in it a more liberated manner with policies he might have considered more polarizing and she is trying to run for the third term of her husband and president obama. donald trump is a foil speaking to african-american civil rights groups and not shown much of an interest or aptitude of building a coalition out to hispanics, to african-americans. and that has not gone lost.
11:26 am
not simply enough to trot out omiraso. republicans have a deep deficit coming to more diverse communities and hillary clinton's trying to solidify that and then build beyond it. >> john avalon, thank you very much. nice to see you and the missus this weekend in washington. >> thank you. the challenge ahead for ted cruz, polls indicate he is trailing in indiana. he is getting snubbed by a key group that has supported him in other states. what is happening on conservative radio in indiana? it is fascinating. that's next. plus, we got him. remember that? the words president obama uttered to tell the world the most wanted man, 0 osama win wi was killed. this is six years and the president spoke to peter bergen what it was like watching live from the situation room as the deadly assault went down. more of that interview coming up. brightening scrub

we are awaiting president obama to speak soon. >> very important announcement that's extraordinary. >> 10:30 p.m. eastern on a saturday night. >> this is cnn, breaking news. >> the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden. >> the united states has the body of osama bin laden. >> bin laden is dead. >> that was incredible. some of the breaking news, bulletins, images across the tv screens five years ago tonight. the world's most infamous terrorist, america's arch enemy, was dead.
11:32 am
killed by u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s in pakistan. a special report tonight 8:00 eastern and our national security analyst peter bergen with unprecedented access to the white house situation room and where that photo was taken as president obama and advisers watched the raid unfold. the president also walked bergen through other parts of the white house that were key that very evening. at one point, he asked the president about the symbolism surrounding bin laden's final moments. here they were. >> the last person that bin laden saw on earth was an american. is that -- >> and hopefully at that moment he understood that the american people hadn't forgotten the some 3,000 people who he had killed. >> let's talk about that moment with cnn global affairs analyst
11:33 am
kimberly dozier and bob bear. great to talk to you both. bob, i remember we were at the white house correspondents' dinner and i remember one point the president left the stage for a number of minutes and we were wondering why. you know? come to find out why, what do you remember about that night five years ago? >> i was completely shocked. i mean, i was shocked that they found him in pakistan. i expected that he would be in afghanistan at least in the tribal areas of pakistan. but the fact he was in an a garrison town. i think it was an extraordinarily courageous decision on the part of the president to send in the 24 s.e.a.l.s and a ten-year war on terror. we invaded afghanistan to go after this man and we finally got him. it was the most important achievement of this presidency and foreign policy. >> you know, some of the details coming out with peter bergen talking about how bin laden dependent on two of the
11:34 am
bodyguards, running out of money. apparently paranoid the home was bugged by his own family. kimberly dozier, what more can you add to that? >> this was a man who was living in hiding for years and the longer you're in that situation if smaller your circle has to become to stay hidden. and there are affects from that. in the end, cia analysts knew that he had to be communicating in some manner, shape or form through a person to the outside world. and that's what they went back and looked at. and tracked down those people. that's how they eventually found him, those last links to that exile sort of at the edge of this town in pakistan. >> do we know, bob, you know, how much the pakistanis really knew about bin laden's compound? that he was there for all those years. >> well, let me quote bob gates, secretary of defense. he said somebody in pakistan had to know.
11:35 am
i've worked in pakistan a lot. and you simply cannot hide in the military garrison like ab abadabad and the question is who. it's never come out. >> the issue, though, obviously a huge, huge victory. five years later, al qaeda is still, you know, unfortunately alive and well and perhaps more dangerous. this new sort of iteration of terror being isis. successful strikes against the west. so terrorism still a massive, massive problem for this country despite bin laden's death. >> a problem and also what it spawned is competition. >> yes. >> yes, the director of national intelligence said this year isis surpassed al qaeda as a leading cause of concern to the united states and it's intent in the
11:36 am
different groups of attacking the u.s. shabab, based in somalia and claims allegiance to al qaeda, said that it tried to bring down an airliner, that exploded but didn't explode high enough up in the air to take it down and groups like al qaeda across africa that can stage bloody attacks against things like hotels where westerners stay. but when you look back at what the u.s. counterterrorism efforts trying to do the idea was at least take away their ability to strike in the hearts of u.s. or european capitals. it looks like right now that's where they are. but, of course, you've got isis to contend with and we can't rule out some sort of collaboration of the two at sometime in the future. >> bob and kimberly, thank you so much. again, a reminder, please watch peter bergen's special report. we got him. interview with president obama on bin laden and the future on
11:37 am
the war on terror tonight 8:00 eastern only the on cnn. coming up next, less than 17 hours until polls open in the state of indiana. ted cruz there is waging an uphill battle and this time an influential voice that's really been in the corner up until now is conspicuously absent. the conservative talk radio giving cruz the silent treatment in indiana? plus, wrangling of prince's songs and money officially started today in the home state of minnesota. his relatives filed into a courtroom to stake their claims and judge's first ruling is ahead.

11:43 am
here today. the idea was to do two things. a, say they're still looking far will. other one was to say at this point they have reached out to all the people that they think are heirs of prince's e skate and that they know that they could possibly join the petition and that's what today was about. very quick, though, brooke. >> how about i understand the first meeting about the estate didn't go well and contentious. shouting. how was the mood inside the courtroom today? >> yeah. it was all about business today. everyone from the family, very quiet. they were just there to listen and be present. but again, it is noteworthy that tyka nelson was on one side of the court and then the others on the other side. no interaction. >> thank you very much for us covering -- i cannot imagine that for these family members. thank you so much. next, back to politics here. texas senator ted cruz, set to

>> note in the campaign in the whole cycle he never attacked anybody. he never -- >> what? >> well -- >> come on, dan. >> nobody in the sense of where he started. it was always the opposing campaign throwing punches at donald trump. >> reporter: and he gave cnn a behind the scenes look at trump's social media operation, one of the most successful, polarizing and controversial in campaign history. >> any messaging and anything on the twitter account is 100% him. he doesn't run anything by me. you know? i get the alert a tweet went out. no matter what time of day or not. >> you know that's unheard of in a presidential campaign. >> it is. it's a different campaign. we are a different campaign. in the evenings, after i would say 6:00 or 7:00 p.m., when he goes back up to his room or hotel, wherever we are, across the country, gets on the phone. he'll read and replies, tweets himself.
11:51 am
mostly -- only time anybody's ever tweeting for him is when heston office and on the phone and wants something out or i'm with him. and he's dictating exactly what he wants on the campaign trail. so that is me but it's generally mr. trump. >> chris moody there. chris, thank you. coming up, dana bash with an interview for candidate ted cruz. we'll have that for you in just a couple of minutes. as we're watching and waiter for him in ft. wayne, indiana. also, more from that tense face to face encounter between senator cruz and donald trump supporters in indiana. >> and i'm running to be everyone's president. those who vote for me -- >> we don't want you. >> you're entitled to your view, sir. i respect it. >> he's the man. >> you ask kasich to drop out. it is your turn. take your own words. >> i'm curious -- >> lying ted! >> what do you like about donald trump? >> everything. >> give me one. >> everything.

we'll get you back to politics in a moment and wanted to share this story for you today. bingham young university, byu, under scrutiny centering around the honor school prohibiting short skirts, no alcohol, no engaging in premarital sex and same code that several female codes used to kick them out after they went to the school and the police for help. cnn's anna cabrera tells their story. >> had taken photos and videos during the rape and he threatened me to expose those. >> like touching me and stuff and tried to get up and leave. >> i have boundaries, you know, strict lines you are not crossing. and he didn't care about those.
11:57 am
>> i was just sitting there crying saying i don't want to report. i can't do this. what if byu finds out? >> reporter: stories of rape and sexual assault, traumatic and horrifying. >> what does it take to change the way we address sexual assault? >> it was really scary. >> reporter: the nightmare began in february of 2014. she says she had taken drugs just before being assaulted. >> over the course of the next 45 minutes, and like different ways, he raped me. >> reporter: she reported it to police but too afraid to face the alleged attacker in court, didn't press charges. three months later, she told her school. >> i thought it would be a simple process to have him being kicked out. >> reporter: because he is a student in. >> yeah. >> reporter: instead she was suspe suspended. byu determined brooke violated the honor code.
11:58 am
a student code of conduct that prohibits the use of illegal drugs an enalcohol as well as premarital sex. >> i waited about four days to report because i was scared of the standing at byu. >> reporter: marty reported to police. so she was shocked when she got a call from byu's title 9 office which investigates sexual harassment and violence. >> essentially said on the phone call was we received a police report and in it, a, we think you may have been raped and, b, it looks like you probably violated the honor code, as well. i felt so betrayed because they read every single thing that happened to me. and they just kind of didn't care. >> reporter: in fact, she says now she's facing backlash of byu for not answering the questions. attorney told her not to until after the criminal trial this fall. this fall won't let her register
11:59 am
until she cooperates with the honor code office. >> never review for reporting an assault, being a victim. >> how does that victim become disciplined? >> i wouldn't know and speculate on anyone's situation. >> reporter: while the school can't talk about specific cases, it did issue this additional statement saying in part, sometimes in the course of an investigation facts come to light that a victim engaged in prior violations. the university strives for fairness, sensitivity and compassion. the university's overriding concern is always the safety and wellbeing of its students. >> i think their first and foremost priority is protecting the university. it's not protecting the students. >> i see you shaking your head. >> they made that very clear. >> since barney went public, other victims felt empowered to share theirs. >> you are not reporting someone else. you're reporting yourself going in. like, that's at least my
12:00 pm
perception of the title ix office. >> as soon as they got legal documents saying that my rapist is convicted, that's when they gave me acommodations and helped me withdraw to classes and didn't offer that until documentation. >> reporter: anger is growing. >> i'm a sexual assault survivor. i was raped here in this community. while i was attending byu. >> did you report it? >> no, i did not for this exact reason. >> reporter: too afraid? >> yes. >> reporter: kelsey led a protest march through campus with the petition signed by more than 100,000 calling on the university to give immunity to those who report rape or sexual assault. >> i'll be happy to take these and we'll personally deliver them to president worth. >> reporter: the university says it's now studying current practices and procedures. >> we want to look at the relationship between the title ix office and the honor code
12:01 pm
office. we want to look at whether and how information is shared and look at the perception that students have. >> it's not a perception. this is something that's actually happening and that's them again not believing us. >> i don't know why they even feel the need to do a study. there's overwhelming evidence. so many people came forward. >> it is just a policies messed up right now and aren't in line with what love and mercy is. >> reporter: anna cabrera, cnn, provo, utah. and we continue on on this monday afternoon. great to be with you. i'm brooke baldwin. this is cnn. we are minutes away from both donald trump and ted cruz separate events, separate cities in utah. about to speak. primary tomorrow that may boost donald trump's run for the nomination unlike any other because it may knock out trump's main competition. ted cruz expected on the stage
12:02 pm
on ft. wayne, indiana. keep in mind here, 57, 57 critical republican delegates up for grabs tomorrow. senator cruz needs every one of them and then some. he also needs the momentum of a win after the recent string of losses throughout the northeast. even cruz has pumped up how important indiana is to him come paining with the state's governor today but a new poll shows ted cruz trailing in indiana by 15 points to donald trump and take a look at what happened earlier today on the trail. ted cruz face to face with a wall of trump supporters. >> i'm running to be everyone's president. those who vote for me -- >> we don't want you. >> you're entitled to your view, sir. >> he's the man. >> you asked kasich to drop out. it is your turns. >> well -- >> take your own words. >> well -- >> once again, lying ted. >> what do you like about donald trump? >> everything. >> give me one. >> everything.
12:03 pm
>> okay. we're going to go to sarah in a moment, in indiana. let's bring in my panel. mave rusten, also cnn chief political correspondent dana bash is with us, as well and mark preston, cnn politics executive editor. awesome seeing all of you. let's talk indiana. dana bash, you are in marion, indiana. just interviewed ted cruz. what did he tell you? >> reporter: he is doing everything he possibly can, understandably, to dispel the notion that if he doesn't win here in indiana where he put all of his eggs, that he's basically done for. and so, we talked about the idea that he over the weekend especially was asked on all of the shows if he doesn't get to
12:04 pm
1,237 before the convention, and donald trump does get that magic number of delegates needed to be the nominee, will ted cruz support donald trump. here's how part of that conversation went. >> dana, nobody's going to get to 1,237. i won't get to it and neither is donald trump. i think indiana is a critical state and indiana is voting tomorrow and i'm encouraged we are seeing conservatives come together, including especially governor mike pence. >> reporter: what makes you so sure he won't get the delegates? i mean, getting 47% of the remaining delegates isn't inconceivable at all. >> he's not to date. that's better than he's done. >> reporter: sure did well last week. >> you're right. he did well in the home state and he did well in the adjoining states. he won five states last week. in the three weeks that proceeded that, i won five states in a row. starting with utah, and then north dakota and then wisconsin and then colorado and then
12:05 pm
wyoming. 1.3 million people voted in those states. >> reporter: so, you know, look. for him it would obviously be political malpractice, brooke, to say, yeah, if i don't win here tomorrow i'm out. there's no way to say that but behind the scenes, not necessarily people deep inside his campaign but republicans i talked to who have been gung ho in the never trump movement say if donald trump wins right here in indiana tomorrow, even for them, the never trump movement it's pretty much game over. >> i mean, you heard, maiv, you heard the trump supporters talking feet from ted cruz's face today saying, hey, remember once upon a time urging governor kasich to get out of the race? you know, telling him to be a spoiler. is it the true, the same true for ted cruz potentially here? >> well, i think that, you know, so much hinges on tomorrow
12:06 pm
night, like dana said. for lots of reasons. but the main reason is money. i mean, how do the anti-trump forces go on and get what they need from donors to help ted cruz and kasich compete in the western states coming up? you know, it is just fascinating, a lot of people are saying that they believe that the polls are actually a little bit tighter than they look right now. but, you know, does ted cruz have a scenario and a path if he comes close to donald trump but lo loses? so much of it depends on momentum and whether or not he can get the do nonors to give h enough money to keep going. >> let's pivot and hearing governor pence introducing ted cruz there speaking. here they are. ft. wayne. let's dip in. >> bring hoosier common sense to the entire country and i'm humbled and deeply honored to have the tremendous support of
12:07 pm
governor pence. >> senator, do you believe the media's counts of delegates are accurate? you criticize the media saying the race is over. do you think it reflects the delegates and unbind delegates before the convention at the rnc meeting? >> david, i think at this point most people are tired of the endless process stories. >> we're not. >> i recognize that's what the media wants to cover. you know what we hear traveling the state? we hear people who want to see how we bring jobs back. we hear single moms working two and three part time jobs and are tired of not having enough to provide for their kids. we hear from steelworkers and coal miners and people who work at factories who have seen their wages stagnating. number one priority of president is jobs and economic growth and focus not on the process stories of a dog chasing the tail in a circle. but instead, how do we get the
12:08 pm
government off the backs of small businesses? how do we cut taxes? reduce regulation so small businesses can take off. and what we're going to see is millions of new high-paying jobs coming back to america. we're going to see manufacturing jobs coming back to indiana and i'll tell you i fully expect in two, three, four years to see carrier bringing those manufacturing jobs back from mexico to indiana, not because the federal government will have used brute force to punish them, but because we will have removed the federal government regulations that drove them away in the first place and we will have created an attractive place to do business that wages are rising and carrier and companies from all over the world will be coming to america, coming to indiana, because the best place to do business on the face of the earth. >> senator -- >> a few words in the last 24 hours, including evil and bigotry. it sounds to me like that's directed towards donald trump. are his supporters voting for
12:09 pm
someone who's evil and bigoted? >> listen. i think donald trump supporters are fed up with washington. i'm fed up with washington. governor pence is. >> can you clarify those words specifically? >> i believe in america. i believe we are a loving people. i believe we're a welcoming people. i believe we are a people who hunger to be united. and i think politics should not be about attacks, about insults, about cursing, about hatred. politics instead should be about shared values. it is the reason why my campaign focuses every day on jobs, freedom and security. those are any priorities. raising wages. freedom, defending the constitution. and the bill of rights. the rights of all of us. and security. standing by our friends and allies. standing by israel and defeating radical islamic terrorism. and i would note every one of
12:10 pm
those issues, they're not narrow 51% wedge issues. those are broad, unifying issues that bring together 60%, 70%, 80% of americans. our campaign is about uniting americans behind shared values. to get back to what works. the obama-clinton economy does not work. it does not make sense. the federal government's assault on the bill of rights is wrong and it is going to end. and so, that is my focus and i think it's also -- >> all right. ted cruz there with governor pence who endorsed him last friday. you know, some of the themes we heard before from the texas senator. mark preston, let's ask you, he was asked about, you know, delegates and some of these unbound delegates and not sure i heard an answer. my question to you is, you know, there have been reports and the cruz camp is outstanding in terms of ground game and grabbing the delegates and now reports they're changing their minds toward trump. if it were to come to, you know,
12:11 pm
that second ballot in cleveland, feeling the pressure, you know, to go as the popular vote, what do you know about that? >> well, brooke, i mean, simple mathematics, as well, to set the stage. 502 delegates bound left on the table. donald trump needs 235 of those. what the cruz campaign is trying to do is to go to states where donald trump has won as we have seen in arizona and virginia and to try to get these delegates to support him on the second ballot. okay? meaning if donald trump doesn't get 1,237 and go in as the outright nominee, ted cruz comes in on the second vote. what we're seeing across the country is we are seeing this inevitability idea to take root. donald trump is going to inevitably become the nominee and pressure on unbound delegates that if their congressional district,
12:12 pm
representing at the convention, was supportive of donald trump, then they better support donald trump. and i think that's what we're starting to take root across the country right now. the inevitability means they won't go against the will of the voters in their states. >> dana, quickly to you with the bit of voice you have left, let's move past indiana for a second. when's the next big date on the cruz camp calendar? is it california? >> reporter: before that, actually, nebraska which is i believe the next week. and the reason why it's critical, maybe not even so much for the cruz camp, but for those big donors that maeve was talking about. some of them located in nebraska. and so, they have to make decisions pretty quickly as to whether or not they're going to stick with their never trump movement and pull out their checkbooks and continue to write
12:13 pm
checks or not. and so, that's why one of the many reasons why tomorrow here in indiana is so incredibly crucial, brooke. >> dana bash, thank you. mark preston and maeve rusten. see the interview next. ted cruz and donald trump both expected, we saw ted cruz a moment ago. donald trump expected to take the stage in carmel, indiana. we'll take that live for you, as well, here on the eve of big indiana primary. next, five years ago president obama gave the order to kill osama bin laden. a decision that changed the global war on terror. peter bergen will join me next. he went one on one with the president of the united states for a rare interview in the white house situation room. do not miss this.

five years ago tonight we were in wall to wall breaking news coverage here on cnn bringing you every single detail we could about what happened in pakistan that evening. u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s, s.e.a.l. team 6, killed bin laden in an overnight raid at a secret hideout. cnn is now looking this evening looking back with a special report with the national security analyst peter bergen. he got access to the white house situation room where the president saw the raid unfold in realtime five years ago. >> well, we came in here at the point where the helicopters were about to actually land. it's here where we observed, for example, one of the helicopters got damaged in the landing. >> what were you thinking? >> i was thinking that this is not an ideal start. look. we were all worried. good news was it didn't crash.
12:19 pm
our guys were able to extract themselves. the bad news was that the helicopter itself was damaged and this is an example, though, of the kind of meticulous planning that had been done. even though we had the best helicopter operators imaginable, despite the fact they practiced these landings repeatedly in a mock-up, we couldn't account for temperature. and the fact that helicopters start reacting differently in an enclosed compound where heat may be rising. >> not off to a great start he says. peter bergen with us now. he wrote the book on the manhunt for bin laden. so nice to have you on. >> thank you. >> to think of you sitting in front of bin laden in '97 and then in front of the president of the united states, the successful killing of the world's most wanted man, five years later, what did you learn?
12:20 pm
>> well, one thing is president obama told us that he was thinking about the raid option earlier than i think we understood. he didn't have to make a decision, obviously. but he was contemplating this raid option fairly early on. if you bomb the compound, you know, for a start, bombing a city and it will be a lot of civilian casualties and couldn't prove. it's bombing a normal ally, pakistan. the raid option plenty of risks with that, became the most attractive one. and then we spoke at considerable length to the admiral the architect of the raid. >> in charge of special-ops. >> everybody we talked to had huge admiration for him and he gave us first really in-depth interview and narrates the raid from his perspective so that was fascinating. >> what about -- give me one detail.
12:21 pm
>> you know, the helicopter pilot that went down, the admiral spoken to him before and they had had a fairly serious discussion if someone fired a rocket-propelled grenade. the pilot said unless i'm dead, i can land this helicopter. >> wow. >> as it turned out, that was not what happened as the president said. it was this kind of unexpected heat, kind of conditions at the compound, helicopter dropped very, very quickly into a kind of controlled crash and the reason it was a controlled crash is they had thought out how to deal with any kind of eventuality. >> the fact that bin laden was in this compound six years? >> almost six years. >> what do we know about who in pakistan had any idea? >> we asked that very good question to the president, john brennan, the head of cia, hillary clinton, the secretary of the state at the time. they say they don't have any
12:22 pm
evidence the pakistanis knew and hillary clinton is fairly convinced someone knew. it was military training town and military officers go to retire and she told us pretty strongly she feels that they did know and didn't proffer evidence for this. >> incredible for the back story and the details five years later. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> of course that of the different people you interviewed and calling it "we got him." do miss this tonight. the raid happened five years ago, the same night at the white house correspondents' dinner and this year the president much more relaxed. the backlash after host larry wilmore at the very end referred to the president as the n-word. and minutes from now, a rally in indiana. a win could really help him clinch the republican nomination. we'll take you there a day ahead

we are watching and listening very closely to the different candidates on the trail the day before the indiana primary here. ted cruz is just taken to the stage. we dipped in a moment ago in the press gaggle with the governor mike pence who had endorsed him on friday so here he is now speaking to a crowd in ft. wayne. we'll keep an eye on that. meantime, cruz's opponent donald trump making a final push before indiana east republican voter gos to the polls tomorrow and
12:28 pm
expected to speak to crowds in carmel, indiana. and that is where we find cnn's sarah murray following the trump campaign. sarah murray, what do we expect to hear from mr. trump? > reporter: well, brooke, i think we hear a lot of confidence from donald trump. in his earlier stop today, there was an unannounced trip for lunch saying he feels like the primary contest done and the republican nominee and hearing from the campaign, too. they watched ted cruz making this final push. he's going all over the state with surrogates. carly fiorina and mike pence and saying, look, we are looking at the polling showing us with this wide lead. and, frankly, the trump campaign believes the same thing of the polling and the alliance may have hurt them. that "wall street journal"/nbc/marrist poll showed 58% disapprove of the alliance
12:29 pm
and they believe it fit it is narrative this is a rigged system. i think anti-trump folks hoping that indiana looks like wisconsin did and deliver trump a defeat. but on the ground it feels different. we are seeing really big crowds for donald trump. seeing a lot of energy. so i imagine he'll be very energetic today. >> we'll dip in. watch for him. could be a big night for donald trump come tomorrow. next, though, talking about when's happening in syria. rare and shocking look at the horrors of war. we have surveillance video inside that syrian hospital that was the target of an air strike. dozens of people were killed including one of the last remaining pediatricians in the entire country. the chilling images moment of impact bring home the human toll of the brutal war. stay here.

u.s. secretary of state john kerry in gentlemeva. we talked about this on the hospital and the rebel controlled area of aleppo. secretary called the attack unconscionable. 50 killed and indicating the last pediatrician for the city. itn matt fry with the video of inside the hospital moments before and after it was hit. the images, they're ghostly as the cameras reveal what happened once the dust settled. >> reporter: this is a silent film. but you begin to imagine the sounds. the cctv cameras outside the
12:35 pm
hospital in the rain and inside are unflinching observers of what's about to unfold. the clocks on the screen are an hour out. it is 9:38 on wednesday evening and the hospital is shaken by an explosion nearby. some people head down stairs expecting casualties to arrive. that turns out to be a deadly mistake. no one you can see here has any idea that this hospital is seconds away from becoming a target itself. the choice of where to go left or right, up or down, seals their fate. the man in green is dr. mohammed leaving the intensive care unit. he's 36 years old and he's the last pediatrician in aleppo. he's already done one day shift at another hospital and is in the middle of the night shift in this one. he is single and his parents have fled to turkey. he was looking forward to visiting them a few days later. we don't know exactly where he is now gone but we do know his fate.
12:36 pm
at 9:42:12, the hospital is hit. same explosion, different camera. minutes after the dust clears, the survivors emerge. the ghostly image of a nurse carrying a child or a baby from the maternity ward. civilians milling around in a daze. taking on the tasks of the nurses who have been killed or injured. dr. mohammed is now dead and so are 50 others. nurses, patients, visitors. as the smoke clears, the road outside emerges as a field of rubble. since then, two more hospitals have been hit and yesterday one of aleppo's main medical storage facilities. in this case, four cctv cameras

resolve. how effective have you all been thus far? >> yeah. you know, my assessment of that is, you know, the overall effort is very effective. we're part of a greater coalition force out here and very well integrated with the joint and coalition partners. i think we have reduced the territory that isil once controlled. excuse me. by about 40,000 square kilometers and, you know, we have been able to see the area where our aircraft have been engaging isil is shifting over the time we have been here over the last few months so there's proof on the ground and throughout the forces here that we are having an impact on isil. >> admiral, do you know, can you share, will you all stay remain there, deployed in the persian gulf or might you move to, say, the mediterranean? >> yeah. that is unresolved right now. we're focused on continuing the
12:40 pm
task at hand. nothing's changed since you were out here, brooke. we are doing the same missions the same way as when you had your team aboard. we fly close air support missions up to syria and iraq and continue to make the contributions here in the maritime security of the arabian gulf so, you know, that's a task at hand every day and continue doing that until the next cast comes up. >> final question, sir. for all the family and friends of all these amazing men and women who i got to meet a couple of weeks ago, certainly struggling with the news that the loved ones away from home for at least another month, what do you want to tell the families who will have a tough time with this? >> yeah. i appreciate you asking that, brooke, because i will tell you that i'm exceedingly proud of the sailors. they took the news in stride. nobody's missed a beat. i'm equally proud of the families back home and it's
12:41 pm
because of their patriotism, willing to sacrifice and unwaivering support for everything we're doing out here and continue to do this. you know, they're behind us 100% and we know that and despite the fact we're out here, our hearts with our family back home and we know that the reunion will be just as glorious in july an it would have been in june and happy for the opportunity. like i said, deployment is about the affects we dedeliver, not the length of the deployment and taking advantage of the opportunity. >> look forward to seeing you in norfolk, you and everyone part of hts and the carrier strike group 8. thank you so much, rear admiral, from the persian gulf. appreciate that. minutes from now, donald trump holding a rally in indiana. taking you there live. also, larry wilmore putting race front and center as he spoke at the white house correspondents' dinner. following the president of the united states. >> welcome to negro night here

12:46 pm
more words to say. obama out. >> oh my goodness. president obama literally dropping the mike as he wrapped up his speech there at his final white house correspondents' dinner in washington over the weekend acting more like, you know, the funniest guy in the room and so-called nerd prom. he and headliner late night host larry wilmar made media, politics, race and more the butt of their joke. >> i apologize. i know i was a little late tonight. i was running on cpt. which stands for jokes that white people should not make. while in england, i did have lunch with her majesty the queen. took in a performance of shakespeare. hit the links with david cameron. just in case anybody is still debating whether i'm black
12:47 pm
enough, i think that settles the debate. let's give it up for our host, larry wilmore also known as one of the two black guys that's not jon stewart. >> welcome to negro night here at washington or fox news will report, two thugs disrupt elegant dinner in d.c. saw you hanging out with nba players like steph curry, golden state warriors. that was cool. that was cool, yeah. kind of makes sense, too, because both of you like raining down bombs on people from long distances, right? >> oh. joining me, she was my table mate and friend at the dinner saturday night, cnn's senior reporter and with me, brian stelter also in the room. >> you had a slightly better table, i think. >> we weren't at the wolf blitzer table but we did all right. we did all right. >> i was closer to the bar. evened out. >> let's begin overall
12:48 pm
impressions. we were chatting through the whole thing. what did you think overall? >> you know, it was a moment. and the ending statement most notably when he ended the night, not so much with a joke but a statement. and calling president obama the n-word. i think in the room it did what it supposed to do which is that it shocked people. after it was over and people were kind of milling around, so many black people sort of made a beline to me and each other and just to kind of discuss what happened. and i think a lot of people in that room thought it was disrespectful. and then the second layer of reaction was the tv audience and twitter audience who thought it was a -- i think real break of what we typically see in performances like this. called black respectability politics. this idea that black people can only say certain things in mixed audiences. and that's what i think larry
12:49 pm
wilmore did in that moment and his appreciation for the president. he was setting that last statement up first saying i love this president. when i was a kid, i didn't -- i didn't get to see black quarterbacks even. thought that -- >> let' play a piece of that because it was really almost like this one-two. so heartfelt and then the n-word. here he was. larry wilmore. >> a black man was thought by his mere color not good enough to lead a football team. and now, to live in your time, mr. president, when a black man can lead the entire free world. [ applause ] so, mr. president, i'm going to keep it 100. yo, barry, you did it [ bleep ]. you did it. >> i think we were like ah. >> we were sort of yelling. >> did he really? >> yeah, yeah, yeah. he sort of code switching in that moment, right? >> right. >> kind of going saying i'm
12:50 pm
going to keep it real, 100 and slang saying, i would love to read an essay from wilmore about the construction of that passage. this is all text. there's a performance. at some point it's texas wets a well. >> stelter, what did you think? >> i thought his performance up until that point was a lot of hits or misses and a lot of misses. it had a scathing series of jokes against obama but it was without purpose. i don't think it's going to boost his show. i don't think he'll be remembered like colbert ten years ago. but talking about having a black president at the podium and then to end the speech with the "n"
12:51 pm
word in that way, it's going to be analyzed how exactly he constructed it. up until that point, though, it was a bummer he had to pass president obama. such great comedic timing. and donald trump jokes in particular, that's what the room wanted to hear. i felt like it was anti-climatic. >> it was cute. the president started wrapping up the whole speech and he said, hang on, you think i'm going to let you all go -- it was so well done. we played that for donald trump this morning on "new day." here was mr. trump reacting to the president. >> is this dinner too tacky for the donald? what could he possibly be doing instead? is he at home eating a trump steak, tweeting out insults to angela merkel? what's he doing? >> i would have loved to have gone. i felt i would have a great time if i go. i knew they obviously would be
12:52 pm
talking about me. no matter how great a time that i would have had, it wouldn't matter. they would say, donald trump was humiliated, donald trump had a miserable time. that's what they did last time. >> what did you think of that, brian? >> of course, he'd like to be there on the podium this time next year. we'll see that about. so far, trump has treated trump as not serious. he's not going to be president. he was mocking trump in a way that he mocked no other candidate. i think he saved his best material for the fall, for the general election. >> brian stelter, thank you so much. nia-malika henderson, thank you for being my friend at the dinner. >> thank you. coming up next, nearly every public school in detroit shut down as there is a massive sick-out. critics say they are making a point at the expense of children. you do all this research on

12:57 pm
nearly 40,000 students in detroit public schools had the day off today because, not a holiday, nearly all of the district teachers called in sick. this is the latest chapter of the long-running dispute. they will run out of money at the end of june and they might not get paid. >> it's humiliating and degrading. we have already worked for this money. this is not money they have given to us. we have already worked. so we continue to work and it will be like we are working for free. what profession works for free? >> it breaks my heart to think about the major impact that the closure of 94 of the district's 97 schools is having on our students and on their families. >> right now, the state legislature is working on a bill to keep the bills open but it has not yet passed.
12:58 pm
we've seen teachers on the picket lines in detroit in the past. why does this keep happening? >> well, it keeps happening because the realization is they may not get some of those paychecks. now, 94 out of 97 schools have been shut down today and it's all about the children's education but it's all about the money, too. remember, detroit is in debt. $515 million the school district has been in debt. the government authorized $48.7 million to go to the school district. so by the end of the fiscal year, which is the ends of june, all of the teachers will be paid. their salaries will be paid. some teachers are on a 26-week pay period. they get their final paychecks in june, july, august. some of those paychecks they will not get unless the house of representatives acts at this point the senate has pushed through bipartisan support legislation which would allow for the state to take over the
12:59 pm
debt of the detroit public schools. many other things. now it's in the house of representatives. and brooke, the house of representatives, if they don't act and if they don't pass this six-bill package, at that point, the financial issues will continue and won't have the money. they won't have the money to have school. they won't have the money to pay the students. it's in the hands of the house of representatives. >> so in the minute i have left with you, on the house side, until it passes, what are the teachers saying? will they keep calling out sick. the governor has offered that and today because there was a sickout, the district is going to lose up to $2 million for today from state funding because they have a number of forgiveness days during the year, school days, but they've
1:00 pm
gone beyond that. >> jean casarez, thank you very much. i'm brooke baldwin here in new york. let's go to my colleague jake tapper. "the lead" starts right now. thanks, brooke. my parents wouldn't let me go to the beach after nerd prom so i'm here right now. "the lead" starts right now. brand-new polling showing many voters in america think that primary season is basically already over. as ted cruz jaws with a trump supporter saying they have all been taken for a ride. >> donald trump is deceiving. he is playing you for a chump. >> accusations of men, women, children scalded and killed by the syrian regime's chlorine gas bombs. new evidence that the cease-fire in that country has gone up in
