two dead, three missing as swee flooding hits texas. now a tropical storm is threatening to wreck weekend holiday plans for the southeast coast. protesters clashing at a trump rally in san diego. police move in with riot gear arresting dozens. and the libertarian party possibly with its best chance yet to prove they are viable
third party choice. we sit down with their leading contenders. >> do you believe that they both qualified to be president? >> your "new day" starts right now. saturday morning came quickly. did it come rushing in for you? we're so grateful to have you with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. overnight, tropical storm warnings were posted for parts of the southeast and this could be serious. >> a tropical depression expected to strengthen today. what's the impact for your memorial day weekend travel plans? i know a lot of people are asking that question. allison chinchar is in the severe weather center. what's the latest? is. >> not only people that live along southeastern coast but all the tour ists coming in for the big holiday weekend. a lot of people are floshging to
the water. here is the latest look at tropical depression two. we are only 4 miles per hour off from being tropical storm bonnie. it doesn't have very far to go to get that next distinction. we do expect it to do that some time today. let's take a closer look at what we can expect for the day. 35-mile-per-hour winds. that's about 4 miles per hour off from getting the distinction of having a name which is bonnie. the reason we start off with a q "b," we had alex back. january. that's why we start off with the letter "b" going forward. this storm doesn't look that impressive. but it is not something you want to just kind of brush off if you have some travel plans anyway where from coastal georgia all the way through coastal north
carolina because this is going to have some impacts. pushing this radar forward, notice a lot of the storms ramp up later today and into tomorrow as it makes landfall. the biggest concern we're going to have with this is going to be deadly rip currents which will will be a huge threat today especially for tourists who may not necessarily think about the rip currents as a big threat. >> allison chinchar, thank you so much. to politics now and donald trump campaigning in deep blue territory. giving california some love after lynching the republican nomination. >> protesters outside his rally in san diego not returning the favor. 35 people were arrested as little bit in riot gear used pepper spray to clear clashes between trump supporters and
protesters. >> reporter: san diego police and sheriff's deputies in other departments had to respond in full riot gear after the trump rally ended. what had happened is they had gone to great lengths to seal off the anti-trump demonstrators from the people leaving the convention center. but, eventually they did start to blend together as they were both walking back towards parking areas shouting matches ensued. there was pushing, shoving, they were throwing things, there were punch punches, there were arrests. then they moved in this full force. all of these officers in riot gear, advisors down, began moving people down. it was effective. they took what was rather a large crowd at one point and thind it out little by little. not that there were confrontations or shouting or
skirmishes, but eventually as it got darker they got a handle on things and dispersed the crowd in a rowdy day in san diego. scenes like the one you just saw may be why some voters say they don't like either candidate. a look at this. nearly half of all voters would consider a third party if hillary clinton or donald trump headed up the major parties. of course they are no you at least the front-runner presumptive nominee in donald trump's case. if you are one of those voters, where do you turn? the libertarian party says that it is ready for your vote. thousands are gathering for the libertarian convention this weekend in orlando voting for their presidential nominee, hoping their pick is a viable alternative for dissatisfied voters. but who are they? >> fiscally conservative, socially liberal, and, hey, whether it comes to these military interventions? i'm a real stkeptic.
>> reporter: gary johnson. >> i'm all about small government. i think government tries to do too much and in the process taxes us too much living your life, personal freedom. i think most republicans fall in that category. think most americans fall in that category. >> reporter: the platform, a mix of ideas from each side of the political aisle. pro-gay marriage and decriminalization of most, if not all drugs. in favor of slashing government benefits and reducing economic regulations. their appeal taking hold. the party says they're seeing a 30% spike in membership. a new poll shows johnson with 10% support across the country. he needs just 15% to earn a spot at the national debate podium next to the republican and democratic nominees. >> just appearing in the polls i think has a self-fulfilling prophecy of well, what is this guy really saying? if i am the nominee i am going to be the only third party
candidate on the ballot in all 50 states. >> he says "if" he is the nominee. nominations are on sunday. but sunday i sat down with him and his pick for vice president, we talked about how they plan to compete against big money campaigns and what they think of hillary clinton and donald trump. >> governor johnson, governor weld, thank you for being with us on cnn. we'll talk about your candidacies and potential opponents in a moment but i want to start with the news of the day. inspector general of the state department released this scathing report about former secretary clinton's private e-mail server. donald trump has said that it is an example of her poor judgment, that it is possible illegal, probably illegal in his estimation. what do you glean from that report and from the secretary's use of a private server?
>> at end of the day i don't think that she will be indicted. i don't see that happening. but like i say, speaking politically, that's not something i'm going to ever engage in. look, i'm going to certainly talk about issue differences with secretary clinton but i'm -- nothing is going to come out of my mouth regarding her e-mail. >> on this optic and others, both hillary clinton and donald trump have said that the other is unqualified to be president. do you believe that they are both qualified to be president? >> well, i'll leave that to others, also. but exciting for me is, running for president of the united states with bill weld, and offering up another choice. a clear third choice in this. at the end of the day, whether or not we're the nominees or not, we hope to be the nominees here coming out of the libertarian convention, i think there will be a clear third
choice. >> governor weld, in 2012 the libertarian party got 1% of the general election vote. let's say this year with two governors on the ticket and two other candidates who are highly -- have high unfavorables that you double that. how do you convince voters you are anything but a spoiler, that you have a real shot at winning? >> i think our aspirations are more than doubling our showing. gary's doubling 10% almost sight unseen in national polls when he's been in the polls. i think our challenge coming out of this convention if we should be fortunate enough to obtain the nominations would be to go around, do what the building blocks of a campaign are -- raise money, do as much media as possible and elevate our profile which is pretty high anyway
because of the resistance of the electorate to both the other candidates. then i think you are talking 10%, maybe 15%. if we can get there, then i think we can make a real showing to be 1 of 3 among equals. >> how do you reach those disaffected republicans? because there are some libertarian positions that are just not -- they don't correspondent only with the republican orthodoxy but they are opposed to. >> i hope no. i hope not. >> think about pro-marriage equality. pro-decriminalization of drugs. abortion rights as well. how do you win over those republicans who don't believe in those things? >> i actually believe the majority of republicans actually hold those beliefs. or if they don't hold those believes, if they are social conservative, it is really secondary to smaller government. >> you believe the majority of republicans are pro-abortion rights, pro-marriage equality?
>> no. but the majority of republicans don't really care about the social issues. what any care about mostly is small government. and i think both of us having served as republican governors in deeply blue states understand that. >> how do you compete -- at the end of april, the fec records show you had just $15,000 on hand. these candidates in the super pacs are going to spend upwards of $1 billion each. how do you compete? >> isn't it amazing that we are where we're at given that amount of money! and that if we just had a little bit of juice where it might go. >> how do you compete? >> i do agree with you that we're going to have to have $20 million, $30 million in the kitty just for openers to persuade the media that they want to pay attention. but i think that's not beyond reach. there is a number of major donors who are libertarian in
orientation and i am going to make it my business to go see them. >> are you going to be investing any of your own money? >> that's not going to move the needle, believe me. >> you say there are people out there willing to invest. are these the koch brothers? there are reports they pledged some funds to you. >> what caught my eye was a page one story maybe four, five days ago that more than half of the major republican donors have not yet signed up with mr. trump. i've known a lot of those people over the years. i was pete wilson's national finance chairman when he ran for president in 1995. i'm hopeful that if i'm knock knock knock, some of those doors will be open. >> more of that interview in our next hour including why weld says he gets along very well with the clintons, his personal opinions and interactions with donald trump and whether
governor gary johnson has been very open about marijuana and cannabis use in the past. whether he would use those products in the white house. he answers that question. a pilot is killed when his vintage fighter plane plunges into the hudson river. identified as william gordon from key west, florida. as this was happening, there were people helplessly watching from the banks of the river. one man did try to help. wabc details the final seconds of the flight. >> witnesses say it felt like slow motion watching this plane hitting along the water, skip something along the surface, then seeing the pilot struggling to get out. >> you could see he was trying to get out. >> you could actually see the pilot struggling. he was there for about 30 seconds. one minute. >> the guy was trying to get out. just couldn't get out. plane just kept going down.
down. down. it just -- gone. >> reporter: watch as a man on a boat dives into the hudson river but can't rescue the person inside this one-seater because within seconds the world war ii vintage p-47 thunderbolt was under water. >> there was a person who got off a sailboat who went swimming towards it and when the boats came he figured it was probably useless, he swam back. >> reporter: it happened around two miles south of the george washington bridge 7:30 friday night along a water side astronaut in edge water, new jersey where hundreds of people dined. >> i was shaken up. it was scary. i feel bad that whoever was in there never came out. >> it was very upsetting. because you know, you watched somebody die. >> i think about his family hearing these accounts. that's got to be so difficult to hear that he was aware and cognizant and trying to escape. >> according to aaffiliate, thi
plane was flying over the hudson for part of a photo shoot for a local air show. there is a large growing group of doctors who are asking what some people are calling the impossible, maybe -- move or postpone the upcoming summer olympic games scheduled to begin in a couple weeks in rio de janeiro. why sexual assault victims at baylor say the university failed them. >> stephanie says while the internal report at baylor vindicates her and many young women, it is now clear the baptist university shunned them after they reported being sexually assaulted. i'd like to make a dep--

to take place here in rio in just over two months' time. doctors writing that they're very concerned about the threats of the zika virus. it is a mosquito-borne skis that's still being investigated at this time. these doctors writing to the world health organization saying that the olympics should either be postponed or moved to another place warning that the risks of having a half million tourists coming here, and then potentially bringing the virus to other countries around the world, to perhaps third world countries that don't have very good health care facilities, that that could be a major threat to global health. now this is coming in direct contradiction to advisories that have come from the world health organization and from the centers for disease control. the cdc just on thursday said, "no public health reason -- there's no public health reason to cancel or delay the olympics. the advisory was for pregnant
women not to travel here and for people to use mosquito repellant to protect them from mosquitos." the w.h.o. has also advised people not to go into poorer districts of rio where there is more open water and could be more expo legislature to mosquitos. the city officials say they're working hard to try to crack down on the mosquito population and they say that here is the winter months here in the southern mem sphere that there are usually fewer mosquitos at this time. but the debate between doctors and health officials is likely to continue. ivan watson, cnn, rio. let's bring in one of those voices, dr. arthur kaplan who heads the medical ethics division at new york university. he is one of the health care experts to sign the letter to the world health organization and he tells cnn why he is concerned about the olympic games spreading the zika virus. >> one possible scenario is that the disease spreads to parts of
the world where they don't have zika and where they wouldn't necessarily get it -- thailand, india, vietnam, places where mosquitos flourish. but it's not going to arrive there unless infected people bring it home. but the zika virus is coming toward the u.s., i believe it is going to come here. that's probably why the cdc said there is no increase, is because it is going to come here. to other countries i think there is risk. >> the head of the cdc says it will update its recommendations on traveling to brazil as circumstances changed. ivan watson kind of alluded to this, but if you are planning on going to the olympic games, the world health organization has this advice -- first, use mosquito repellant, cover bare skin with light colored clothing, no unprotected sex and stay in air conditioned accommodations, avoid places with poor sanitation and without proper plumbing. that just makes you want to go.
let's talk about some really dangerous weather right here in the southeast. severe flooding. this is texas. two people have been killed, others are missing. we've got your outlook on your holiday weekend as your tropical storm threatens the southern east coast. ed lavendera brings us the story of one particular girl. she says she is just one of several victims who felt pushed aside by baylor university. >> she says she was sexually assaulted by a baylor student last march, and after she tried reporting the attack, it went nowhere. >> if you really, truly believed someone was raped, wouldn't you do something urgently about it? wouldn't you? like wouldn't you respond with urgency? . you're real? with discover card, you can talk to a real person in the u.s., like me, anytime. wow. this is a recording. really? no, i'm kidding. 100% u.s.-based customer service. here to help, not to sell.

27 minutes after the hour now. baylor university. it's demoted its president and intends to fire its football coach after a report was released that says that the school did not respond properly to allegations of sexual assaults. >> a victim of one of those assaults says the school failed its students and did not live up to its own values. here's cnn's ed lavendera. >> reporter: the clarm hairman baylor's board of regents says the details of the internal investigation were shocking and outrageous but despite that, ken starr wasn't fully fired. >> how i feel about baylor, it's like they failed me. >> reporter: city ofmy says that while baylor university's internal report vindicates her and many more young women, she
says it's now clear the prominent baptist university shunned them after they reported being sexually assaulted. >> the institutional crap, like this is out of our hands, we can't do anything about it, like case it closed. you know what i mean? if you really believed someone was raped, wouldn't you do something? right? like especially with a high christian standards they purport to have. >> reporter: she says she was sexually assaulted by a baylor student last march and after she tried reporting the attack, it went nowhere. >> if you really, truly believed someone was raped, wouldn't you do something urgently about it? wouldn't you? like wouldn't you respond with urgency? that's the thing. we don't see urgency. we see -- we'll coordinate this next week. we hope to meet with this witness in a week or two. i don't think they understand like the weight that it has on us as survivors. >> reporter: baylor's board of regents says it was horrified by a fundamental failure by the institution to protect female
students. the sexual assault which involved several football players occurred in recent years as the baylor football program emerged from decades of mediocrity to become a national contender under head coach art briles. a massive new stadium was built on campus. but critics say the sexual assault investigations were covered up to protect the school's image. >> baylor knew, had prior knowledge of a huge problem with sexual assault on their campus, especially through the athletic program. and they just did nothing. they did absolutely really nothing to protect these female students. >> reporter: head football coach art briles will will be fired and ken starr who investigated the bill clon/monica lewinsky scandal was removed as president but kept as chancellor and a law school professor. neither has responded to cnn's requests for comment. in a telephone conference call
with reporters, baylor officials refused to say why ken starr wasn't fired outright. >> we don't talk about individual people. it is just inappropriate to do that. again we just have higher expectations for people and their leadership. >> reporter: baylor university says it released the key findings of its internal investigation to be open with the university community. however, that report does not specify just how many sexual assault victims there were or how many cases it investigated. we have asked, but haven't gotten an answer. >> ed lavendera, thank you so much. we'll stay on that story for you. have you heard that donald trump has this new strategy for the general election? he says he's not just looking to win republican states -- there are blue states that he's got his sights on. plus this. >> a french news agency captured these rare images of u.s. special operators in the area wearing the insignia of the
syrian kurdish forces they are fighting alongside. >> and those patches have upset a key u.s. ally in the region. we'll tell you what the pentagon has to say about it. i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do
release its own insulin. trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it should be used along with diet and exercise. trulicity is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes and should not be used by people with severe stomach or intestinal problems or people with type i diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. trulicity is not insulin and has not been studied with long-acting insulin. do not take trulicity if you or anyone in your family has had medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 or if you are allergic to trulicity or its ingredients. stop using trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer, which may include a lump or swelling in your neck,
hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. medicines like trulicity may cause stomach problems, which could be severe. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and any medicines you take. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, and indigestion. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney failure. with trulicity, i click to activate what's within me. if you want help improving your a1c and blood sugar numbers with a non-insulin option, click to activate your within. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity.
stumps in san diego. outside -- not so much. trump supporters and protesters getting into it yelling, throwing punches and shouting at one another. at least 35 people were arrested in the clashes as police in riot gear with batons there had to separate the groups. >> yes, you did hear that correctly -- trump is campaigning in the democratic stronghold of california. he says he believes he can win the deep blue states as well as a few others besides california. we'll outline his new strategy in a moment. first though, keeping an eye on a big storm that could hit parts of the east coast this holiday weekend. >> allison chinchar is in the cnn severe weather center. how could this what is now a tropical depression impact memorial day weekend travel plans? i know a lot of people are packing up cars and trucks headed on the roads soon. >> that's right. everything from having a rainy day at the beach to the more serious end of this being the coastal flooding, and then also rip currents.
as you mentioned, we do have tropical storm warnings out all along the south carolina coast. you can see the blue line with the storms still well out to the west but it is making its way towards this area. let's get a different perspective on this collar stpa storm from a 3-d view. with all of the current stats you need, right now 35 miles per hour the sustained winds. that's only 4 miles per hour off from being a tropical storm. once it hits that mark as we expect it to later today, it will end up turning into tropical storm bonnie. it will continue to slide up the east coast, bringing some showers, coastal flooding, and again the big threat will be the rip currents, especially to all of the tourists that will be in the area. >> we'll watch out for it. thank you so much. donald trump has a new
general election strategy. just like his campaign, it's unconventional. he wants to try to paint traditionally blue states red. look at this map. >> trump says he plans to win florida and ohio, which last saw a republican win in 2004. michigan and pennsylvania, which both last were won by republicans in 1988. and also take a shot at winning solidly democratic states that have not seen republican wins also in the '80s. illinois, new jersey, new york, oregon, california. listen to what he said last night in fresno. >> no other republican -- let's say ted cruz won or let's say any one of them won. they wouldn't even come here for dinner because they are told that as a republican, you have zero chance. okay? i really believe we're going to win it. i think we have a real chance to win it. and you know what? i view it strategically also. because if we don't win it, they
are going to spend one hell of a fortune in fighting me off, that i can tell you. >> let's bring in kevin scott, republican strategist and trump supporters and holly schulman, spokesperson for the democratic national committee. thank you both for being here. we appreciate it. we've been looking at trump's plans to shake things up, redraw this election map. kevin, first, how plausible do you think that is and what is he going to have to do to win california? it hasn't been done since '88. >> trump's strategy right now is to go on offense. he is trying to say we're going to compete in the areas where we couldn't normally compete. this is interesting because he's going to be outraised and really outorganized. but because of his approach he really believes that he's going to be competitive in these places and i think you are going to see it because he is bringing people into the mix that haven't been brought into the mix before. in a really interesting way, even though obama's message was really positive in 2004, you're seeing -- or in 2008, you're seeing just a really -- like he's going to say we're bringing
new people in. that's what obama did. that's what he did to redraw the map and i think trump can really do it. >> when you look at all the chaos and protesters yesterday, is he really bringing in new people in california? >> certainly, he is. he is bringing in people in the republican party that have never been a part of it before. what's interesting, we are lucking at these protests. the protests i think if you keep seeing violence incited by the other side, a lot of these people are professional protesters. that's going to help donald trump long term, not hurt him. because he'll make the case these people just aren't serious about making america great again. >> of all the people arrested, we don't know who were protesters or supporters. holly, if hillary clinton does become the democratic nominee, trump obviously already laying the groundwork. his game plan essentially, as you heard there, to make her spend a lot of money in
california. does she have, do you think, the financial resources and the team work to get this done in california? because it is not just about the general election. she still has to win california and according to some reports, the clinton camp is not wholly confident they can do so in the primaries. >> no, it will have the resources to compete in california and across the country in the general election. ultimately whether california is in play is up to the voters there. what we see from voters there is that they care about addressing student loan debt for which donald trump doesn't have a plan. they care about climate change and addressing climate change which donald trump demise is even a problem. right? so ultimately it is the voters who decide whether these states are in play. donald trump isn't doing himself any favors with his organization because he just hasn't -- doesn't have one in place yet. >> how does hillary clinton plan to tackle california in the primary though? >> i think she's going to continue to get her message out
to voters and talk about the messages that matter. it is clear dynamic is going. she has more delegates and 3 million more voters than bernie sanders does and i don't think that's expected to change in the next few weeks. >> let's get to some sound here from donald trump yesterday because he is definitely targeting hillary clinton right now. >> it was so sad because everything she said was like a lie. i wonder -- i wonder if i could start -- instead of saying kroo crooked hillary, which is a very accurate description, i wonder if i could say remember lyin' -- it goes back to judgment. it goes back to companies. she's not competent. if you look, she's essentially not competent. it goes to her judgment, it goes to her level of competence and she's not competent and it's always been this way. >> holly, based on what we've seen this week alone just with what's happening with her
e-mails and some of the questions about how cooperative she was in that investigation, what does she have up her sleeve to try to make some of this go away? because we know at the end of the day, if you say a name enough -- he keeps throwing out this crooked hillary -- sometimes it sticks. >> what people don't like about politics is exactly what donald trump is trying to make this campaign about. it is about name calling. this is why people hate what we do. i think that the more he does this, the more he tries to distract, talk about other issues, i don't think it is going to help him in the end. eventually his campaign is going to have to focus on the issues and the economy and he just doesn't have a plan. >> that's interesting. when you talk about the issues, this debate was proposed by donald trump, bernie sanders said he would do it. donald trump now says he will not do it which surprised a lot of people. why will he not debate bernie sanders? >> i think he's making clear, bernie sanders is going to finish second place ultimately
in the democratic primary and really the only person that's going to lose in this whole situation is hillary because she is still fighting bernie on the democrat side. she's having to fight trump and she is fighting an inspector general report -- >> but what does trump have to lose? >> he's getting enough press without it. donald trump has no trouble getting media attention. doing another debate with bernie, it is great in theory but it doesn't help him move the ball forward. he'll focus his attacks on hillary clinton as she is going to be the presumptive nominee even those a lot of democrats wish she wasn't. >> thank you both very much. we appreciate you being here. the latest excuse for why donald trump won't release his taxes. the returns are simply "too complicated to understand." that story ahead.

first, donald trump said he would not release his taxes because they were under audit. then he said his tax rate is none of our business. >> now he says they won't be released because they are too complicated. here >> reporter: speculation of what's in those returns builds each time trump or one of his people make the excuses like the one we heard this week. the latest -- the american people just won't understand them. well, guess what? the american people don't have to be tax experts because there are a ton of lawyers and analysts who are going to dig through those documents if and when they do become available and i can bet you a few are sitting at clinton campaign headquarters right now. so that excuse really doesn't add up because the information will get out in a digestible
format. for months we've been talking about the changing explanations for are why trump isn't going public with the documents but congressional democrats are actually trying to do something about it. senator ron widen of oregon ind deuced a bill that would force, compel, presidential nominees to publicly disclose three most recent tax returns. if they don't, the bill would authorize treasury to do it, with or without an ongoing audit. it is unclear whether this bill has a shot at getting passed but it is more indication the democrats will draw attention for this issue and even some republicans are pushing for trump to do it. hillary clinton keeps flaunting the fact she's released eight returns in this cycle and over 30 years' worth over the course of her public life. let's not forget trump made his returns available while under audit when his casinos were on the line. candidate handed those documents over to the gaming authorities in pennsylvania and new jersey.
so the question is why can't he do it now when so much more is at stake. well, a bombshell announcement by the international olympic committee. >> nearly two dozen athletes may have failed drug tests. >> reporter: gold medal dreams could be shattered after officials uncover possible doping by athletes who could compete in rio this summer. i invest with e*trade, where investors can investigate and invest in vests... or not in vests. sign up at etrade.com and get up to six hundred dollars.

correspondejim shudo has the story. >> reporter: in raqqa, syria, alongside kurdish and arab forces fighting the terror group, a french news agency captured these rare images of u.s. special operators in the area wearing the insignia of the syrian kurdish forces they are fighting alongside. nato ally turkey immediately protested. they consider them terrorists. u.s. military now says it should never have happened. >> wearing those patches was unauthorized and it was inappropriate and corrective action has been taken. >> reporter: the new images make clear that u.s. forces are now very close to the front lines of the fight against isis in syria. the pentagon insists the role of u.s. forces has not changed. >> they are not on the forward line. they are providing advise and assistance, and again, i'm not going to get into details but that mission has not changed. their role has not changed. they are not leading this fight.
they are supporting those forces that are at the leading edge. >> reporter: currently more than 200 u.s. forces on the ground in syria training and advising syrian and kurdish fighters. cnn's barbara starr spoke exclusively last week with a spokesman for the kurdish air coalition who said they still need more american help. >> translator: we have requested a continuous supply of weapons at a level that is consistent with the size of the mission we face. >> reporter: in iraq, the u.s. continues air strikes and artillery barrages against isis fighters in support of iraqi forces fighting to retake the town of fallujah. which sits just 40 miles of the capital baghdad. one u.s. air strike, says the pentagon, killed a commander of isis forces in the city.
protesters and supporting clash outside a trump rally in san diego. police move in with riot gear, arresting dozens. and the libertarian party convention is under way right now in orlando. victor sits down with their leading nominees to find out why the libertarian party has its best chance yet to prove they are a viable third party choice. a nightmare super bug discovered now in the u.s. even the strongest antibiotics can't kill. what can be done to fight the bacteria? doesn't that make you want to get up and face the day? good morning to you, we are always grateful for your company. nonetheless, i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good to be with you this saturday morning. there won't be parades or picnics in parts of texas this memorial day. the state caught up in flooding emergencies after getting hit by more than a foot of rain.
>> two people are dead from the heavy storms in southeast texas. one of them apparently found in a vehicle that was swept away by floodwater. for houston and austin, there is no end in sight. if you are there, more rain is expected throughout the weekend. folks in the midwest could see more water rescues like this today. missouri's governor is declaring a state of emergency and warning of potential flash flooding there. also overnight, tropical storm warnings were posted for parts of the southeast. how could this impact your memorial day weekend travel plans? that answer coming from allison chinchar in the severe weather center. what are you learning about what we can expect in the next 24 to 48 hours? >> let's start with the tropical storm. we will get to the texas flooding in just a moment. here's a look at our current watches. we do have tropical storm watches and warnings out for portions of south carolina right now ahead of the tropical depression. it is not a named storm just yet, but likely to get that distinction later today and when
it does, it will get the name bonnie because we're starting off a little bit later. we had alex back in january, if you recall. here is a look at what it is expected to do. late tonight, talking overnight saturday into sunday is when it is expected to make landfall. that's when the brunt of the storm will end up hitting. it is supposed to be right around the area of charleston, south carolina. then it will kind of drag up the coast. we've got another blocking pattern out to the west preventing it from coming too far inland, so that helps cities like atlanta and charlotte but doesn't help cities like hilton head, stretching up to wilmington and the outer banks which will all be affected by this particular storm bringing very heavy rainfall, some rip currents and heavy coastal flooding. another area they've been dealing with flooding has been texas. unfortunately for these folks, as we take it through the day, even more rain is expected for even more of these areas. the heavy rain today will be focused on the western half of the state, not quite the houston to austin area that we've seen the incredible torrential rain
in the last 48 hours, but nonetheless, we still expect much rainy conditions across much of the southeast for your memorial day graft. the good news, chicago, minneapolis, cincinnati will actually have a very nice memorial day forecast. >> thank you. little bit of sunshine there. we appreciate it. thank you. wouldn't want to be too near that, would you? this was the scene outside a donald trump rally? police clad in riot gear wrangled with protesters. this scene is becoming somewhat familiar outside the presumptive republican nominee rallies. donald trump tweeted this to san diego police -- san diego pd, fantastic job on handling the thugs who tried to disrupt our very peaceful and well attended rally. greatly appreciated. want to bring in cnn
correspondent scott maclean. i know protests outside these valleys are not unusual, let's say. but the one in california looked particularly sizable and potent. what are you learning this morning? >> yeah, good morning. that's what took place outside. and inside that event, donald trump was making some pretty bold pronouncements in san diego. chief among them is that he could win california in the general election despite the fact that the state has not voted republican in a presidential election since 1988. it is also a state with a high latino population, a group that trump is struggling to win over as you can see from those protest pictures. donald trump says this is all part of a larger strategy to focus on about 15 states in the general election, some are traditional swing states and some are democratic strongholds, places like new york, michigan and pennsylvania. >> scott, there were a lot of people talking about this as well overnight -- donald trump wanting to debate bernie
sanders, bernie sanders welcoming it with open arms saying, okay, let's do this thing, and then donald trump backing away from that. what are we hearing today about the reasoning there? >> yeah. what's definitely not part of donald trump's strategy is debating bernie sanders. as many people had predicted, it looks like this proposed debate -- which was actually first floated on late night tv -- it is not going to happen after all. both men seemed to be on board and two networks were on board as well. but yesterday donald trump put out a statement saying, now that i am the presumptive nominee, it seems inappropriate that i would debate the second place finisher and this is what bernie sanders had to say reacting to that. >> i hope that he changes his mind. again. i mean, mr. trump is known to change his mind many times in a day. and i would -- trump goes around, he is a bully. he is a big, tough guy. well, mr. trump, what are you afraid of? why do you not want to see a debate here in california and
obviously all across this country? >> reporter: i am positive that there were a heck of a lot of people who were hoping to see that match-up between donald trump and bernie sanders. but alas, we will have to wait for the general election. >> no doubt about it. scott maclean, we appreciate it. thank you. libertarian party hoping the turmoil around the major parties pushes voters its way. the party is holding its nominating convention this weekend in orlando. the party's front-runner, gary johns johnson, a former two-term governor of new mexico who ran for president as a libertarian in 2012. he earned 1.3 million votes, the most ever for a libertarian candidate. but that's just 1% of the overall turnout in november of 2012. johnson's pick for vice president -- bill weld, the former massachusetts governor who briefly ran as a libertarian for the governor's office in new york and at one time was nominated for the post of ambassador to nextco. on friday i sat down with both weld and johnson, their first ever interview together that
asked about weld's relationship with former president clinton who nominated him to be ambassador to mexico. as well as whether or not johnson at one time the ceo of a company that sells marijuana products would use the drug in the white house. >> you were nominated before you resigned as governor of massachusetts to be ambassador to mexico by president clinton. what is your relationship with the clintons? >> it's good. i worked with mrs. clinton back in the '70s. we were still in our 20s. that was on the nixon impeachment. fascinating time. bill clinton i got along with very well as fellow governors and i was generally supportive of him as president as well. >> when is the last time you've spoken with the clintons, secretary clinton? >> i don't think i've spoken with her in two years. i've seen her in new york. because i lived in new york for ten years not long ago.
>> ydo you know donald trump? >> yeah. we did see him and melania around town a little bit. >> what's your opinion of him? >> you know, the donald trump that you meet socially and he's a warm person, not an ungenerous person. some of the stuff that he's running on i think is absolutely chaotic. i'm going to do this to mexico. okay. that's a violation of the north american free trade agreement which is the supreme law of the land. it is a treaty, we signed it. i'm going to do this to china. no questions asked. okay, that's a violation of the world trade organization rules exposing us, the united states, to sanctions there. so we would be the rogue nation. i don't think we want to be the rogue nation. you know? let's let north carolina be the rogue nation, not us. >> governor johnson, donald trump is no stranger to name calling. hillary clinton has said that she's not going to get into what she calls the gutter with limb. during the february libertarian debate you called him a word that is so vulgar i cannot say it on cnn. is that the way you're going to wage this campaign?
>> no. it was a really poor attempt at humor. it was a total misfire. i apologize and i'm better than that and you won't see that at all. >> how do you then go after donald trump? because some of the monikers he's hand the out, they've stuck and they've worked. how do you go after -- >> you don't go after anybody. i was never a member of the never-trump crowd. i declined that invitation. i think he deserves a lot of credit for what he's been able to do, bringing people into the republican party. i think some of those people are going to stay in the republican party. >> would you call him a friend? >> no, no. no, no. no. i would call clintons closer to being friends. >> right before you announced your 2016 candidacy for president, you were ceo of a company called cannabis sativa, maker and marketer of cannabis product. you've been very open about your use of cannabis products. would a president johnson use cannabis products in the white
house? >> no, i wouldn't. i've been on record saying that. i haven't had a drink in 29 years. no, i don't think -- i think i really have a proven record of discipline beyond most people. and, no, i don't think you want to have the president of the united states impaired or potentially being impaired in any way whatsoever. >> governor johnson also told me during that interview that he hasn't used cannabis products in four weeks and continues to stay sober throughout the rest of the campaign. you can see my full interview with gary johnson and bill weld on our website, cnn.com. and cnn is at the libertarian convention in florida all weekend. we'll have live coverage beginning this afternoon on cnn newsroom. some of the world's most prominent doctors are warning that the summer olympics in brazil could pose a global health threat. we'll talk about it. plus, the family of north korean dictator kim jong-un living in new york. why his aunt says kim started

13 minutes past the hour. dozens of doctors from around the world are publicly urging that the summer olympic games in rio de janeiro be moved or postponed because of the zika virus. the fear is that the surge in international visitors and athletes to brazil will spread the disease to beyond the 60 countries where it is already a concern. >> but the olympic committee and the cdc say the threat will continue to spread globally regardless of when or where the olympic games are held. our senior international correspondent ivan watson has more from rio. >> reporter: a group of more than 100 doctors and researchers have issued a public warning about health risks to the olympics that are scheduled to take place here in rio in just over two months' time.
the doctors writing that they're very concerned about the threats of the zika virus. it is a mosquito-borne disease that is still being investigated at this time. these doctors writing to the world health organization saying that the olympics should either be postponed or moved to another place, warning that the risks of having a half million tourists coming here and then potentially bringing the virus to other countries around the world to perhaps third world countries that don't have good health care facilities, that that could be a major threat to global health. this is coming in direct contradiction to advisories that have come from the world health organization and from the centers for disease control. the cdc, just on thursday, said, "no public health reason -- there is no public health reason to cancel or delay the olympics. the advisory was for pregnant women not to travel here and for people to use mosquito repellant
to protect them from mosquitos." the w.h.o. has also advised people not to go into poorer districts of rio where there is no are open water and could be more exposure to mosquitos. the city officials say they're working hard to try to crack down on the mosquito population and they say that here is the winter months here in the southern hemisphere that there are usually fewer mosquitos at this time. but the debate between doctors and health officials is likely to continue. ivan watson, cnn, rio. >> we've got one of the voices, part of that debate, dr. arthur kaplan who heads the medical ethics division at new york university. he was one of the health care experts to sign the letter to the world health organization and he tells cnn why he is concerned about the olympic games spreading the zika virus. >> one possible scenario is that the disease spreads to parts of the world where they don't have zika and where they wouldn't necessarily get it -- thailand,
india, vietnam, places where mosquitos flourish. but it's not going to arrive there unless infected people bring it home. the zika virus is coming toward the u.s. i believe it is going to come here. that's probably why the cdc said there is no increased risk, because it is going to come here. but to other countries i think there is risk. >> the head of the cdc says it will update its recommendations on traveling to brazil in circumstances change. but as ivan said, if you're planning to go to the olympic games, the world health organization wants you to do this. use mosquito repellant and cover bare skin with light colored clothing. no unprotect the sex, they say. and stay in air conditioned accommodations. avoiding places with poor sanitation and without proper plumbing obviously. >> watch out for all that. now if you all don't know -- christi is from ohio. and cleveland's long wait could
be coming to an end. >> following the excitement. oh, yes. >> hey there. king james reigns supreme in the nba finals. he's on a historic run that hasn't been equalled in five decades. details next. t-mobile is going big for small business. you'll never get charged data overages, ever. get your own 24 / 7 dedicated business account team. and with double the lte coverage in the last year you can get more done in more places. right now get 2 lines with 10 gigs each for just a $100 bucks. and for a limited time get a hot spot free, yeah free. switch your business to t-mobile@work today.
woo! the cavs won the eastern conference title last night with a huge game six win over the toronto raptors. lebron and his teammates have won the eastern conference every season since 2011. remember, he won four straight conference titles with the miami heat in the past two with the cavs. now cleveland has a shot to win its first professional sports championship in 52 years. and they hope king james will be the guy to make it happen. it's back-to-back appearances in the finals for the cavs and the sixth straight for an emotional king james. >> it means a lot. i mean the game of basketball has given me everything and i will never cheat the game, no matter how many games i win, no matter how many games i lose. that really doesn't matter to me because i really just give it all. >> more hoops action tonight on t in. t. game six between the defending champion warriors and the thunder. tip off is set for 9:00 eastern.
>> so based on what you know, what are the chances, do you think? >> that lebron wins? they're playing stellar basketball right now. but, okc and the warriors are very good basketball teams. so we will see. it is going to be outstanding finals, no matter what. >> the series is going to be great. who wouldn't love to see lebron bring one back to cleveland. >> that's the best story ever. >> that would be great for you, christi. >> yes. because i'm happy about it, but not because -- i don't get any credit. all on cavs, people. go cavs! i'm with you! i feel ya! a serious turn here. for the first time in the u.s., doctors are faced with the so-called super bug resistant to most antibiotics. first though, want to make sure that you have a look at the current mortgage rates for you. while you were busy not remodeling your bathroom,

that can camp out in between our teeth, if we'll let it. use gum® brand. soft-picks®. proxabrush® cleaners. flossers and dental floss. gum® brand. angry crowds there outside a donald trump rally in san diego. officers pushed protesters and several were pepper sprayed, as you can see there. >> at least 35 people arrested here. similar episodes have unfolded in several states outside rallies for the presumptive republican nominee. donald trump saying now he will not face off against bernie sanders after the candidates earlier this week floated the idea of going toe-to-toe on a
debate stage. trump now says it would be "inappropriate." this comes, of course, as the presumed gop nominee touts a new general election strategy. look at this map. trump plans to try and paint all of these states red. some of them, like california, have not seen a republican win since the 1980s. listen to what trump said last night in fresno. >> no other republican -- let's say ted cruz won or let's say any one of them won -- they wouldn't even come here for dinner. because they are told that, as a republican, you have zero chance. okay? i really believe we're going to win it. i think we have a real chance to win it. and you know what? i view it strategically, also. because if we don't win it, they are going to spend one hell of a fortune in fighting me off, that i can tell you. >> holly shulman, former spokeswoman of the democratic national committee, scottie
hughes, a donald trump supporter. ladies, great to have you here. scottie, when you look at what happened last night, at the protesters, we've not only seen this at trump rallies, we've seen some discourse certainly at bernie sanders events as well or certainly at that one event. what does this say about the american people as a whole, the electorate and who is going to be going to the polls? forget about the nominees for a moment or the presumptive nominees. what does it say about the people who would be making the decision about who gets in the white house? >> i think what it says is that people are very emotional. they're very engaged with this election year because of probably the last eight years and the policies that they feel very frustrated with and they are experiencing it. it is interesting you said, what do americans feel? what does the american electorate feel? there were actually ten times more people inside that rally last night in san diego than there were outside that rally that were protesting it.
you sit there and you go, wait a minute, the people that were peaceful, the people that were sitting there wanting to hear about a possible future person they were going to vote for, they were inside, yet the cameras were outside showing this loud crowd that we see continues to escalate at every single event. and with 8 million more people vote flg thing in this year's e on the gop side, you can tell the republican party has done a great job of engaging their voters and making sure they are getting to the polls where we are seeing this disruption on the other side. >> to you now, holly. we haerdz there from donald trump his game plan is essentially to force hillary clinton in california to spend an awful lot of money, whether he wins or not in the primary. for the primary -- or in the general election. for her in the primary, if she does not win the primary, if, by some chance, bernie sanders does win, what does that do for her general election prospects? >> i think that california will only be in play if voters there
tend to like donald trump, and the answer to that question right no you is they don't. the other thing is that donald trump's campaign, the mantra in 2012 and 2008 was data and organization. neither of those things are things donald trump seems to be caring about a whole lot so i don't think that he'll have a whole lot of luck in pushing new frontier states and i don't think he's going to have an easy time in the swing states either. >> there is an article on the front page of the "new york times'" website this morning talking about a sense of paranoia. a sense of paranoia is growing among his campaign staff, meaning trump, have told some associates their tower my be bugged. >> i don't think there is -- this is just normal campaigns growing. you are taking a lot of people,
some that have been involved in politics before, some from business and putting them all together and saying your main goal is to get mr. trump elected. from that point everybody is getting to learn each other. these are not people that have been engaged. data from 2008 and 2012.t up - those campaigns lost. that is the reason why the republican party possibly has lost is because they sat there and looked at the numbers and forgot the people. that's something the democrats have done great. this election cycle we've seen mr. trump relate. 's spend one-third less of hillary clinton and the other candidates. he has half the staff size, yet he's drawing historical, record numbers because it is the people empowering him, not necessarily the dollars are ot data. i don't know about anything going on within the campaign of being bugged. i think those could be little rumors. the key right now is getting votes that are coming together from the business and political communities to work together for the common goal which is mr. -- electing mr. trump. >> over the last 12 hours there has been a lot of talk about a
possible debate between bernie sanders and donald trump. donald trump had proposed it. bernie sanders said bring it on. donald trump then at the last minute said, no, this isn't going to lap. we know that bernie sanders wanted to debate hillary clinton before the california primary. she has refused to do so as well. holly, why is it, do you think, that both donald trump and hillary clinton are refusing to debate bernie sanders? >> i think that the american people have seen a lot of these candidates on tv and i'm not sure that anyone needs to see any more of them. would i clear my schedule for that bernie/trump debate? absolutely. but i think it is time that people start talking about the issues that matter, economic issues and until trump is willing to do that, i'm not sure that we need to see another debate between these candidates. >> but it does certainly spark a lot of emotion, as you were talking about, scottie, #chic n
enhillary and #chickentrump have been trending overnight. do you think it would behoove donald trump to debate bernie sanders? >> as mr. trump pointed out in his press release, why should the number one person from the republican party debate the number two of the democrat party especially if the democrat party isn't making the number one person, hillary clinton, fulfill her promise to debate bernie sanders before california? why should mr. trump actually sit there and jump over and fulfill that promise? if the democrat party really was serious about wanting a debate between bernie sanders and donald trump, then they should actually make hillary clinton fulfill her word that she was going to debate bernie sanders first. let the parties figure it out for them selves and mr. trump as the number one republican will go against the number one democrat, whomever the people choose. >> allrightee. lastly, holly, how do you think hillary clinton is going to be able to win over california? what does she have to do to get out there? >> she's built a great organization. they are on the ground talking to voters. that's what's going to be
important. no amount of being on tv and being a demagog on the issues is going to help. so i think that hillary clinton is doing the right strategy. she's on the ground. she's talking to people. she's talking about the policies that matter and that's what's going to win over voters in november and also in the primary. >> allrightee. holly shulman and scottie hughes, we appreciate you both being leer. it is a superbug that cannot be fought or killed with normal antibiotics. doctors are warning it could be a sign of more dangerous bacterium to come. plus, a trusted relative of north korean leader kim jong-un now living if obscurity in the u.s. she reveals what he was like as a young boy. the all-new audi a4, with apple carplay integration.
39 minutes after the hour now. for the first time in the u.s., doctors say they have found a superbug resistant to nearly all antibiotics. including the one doctors use when most other drugs fail. >> scientists now say this superbug could be a warning sign of what's to come. here's cnn's chief medical correspondent, dr. sanjay gupta with what we know right now. >> reporter: all we know at this point is that this woman is 49 years old. that she's from pennsylvania. that she was seen in the clinic. she wasn't in the hospital. she was seen in a clinic and she was found to have this bacteria, an e. coli bacteria that does not get killed by any existing antibiotic. she hasn't traveled from overseas recently so this does not appear to have come from another country. and now the focus for
researchers is going to be what do we do about this? how do we prevent this particular bacteria which is resistant to antibiotics from spreading? and where are the new antibiotics going to come from? where are they going to come from, when are they going to come? i think medical officials for some time had been anticipating a day like this so there's been various strategies in the works. but as things stand now, there is a bacteria out there that doesn't respond. we just got to make sure it doesn't spread and that we have more tools in the tool box as soon as possible. back to you. >> sanjay, thanks so much. so what could a single case in pennsylvania mean for everyone else? joining us now to discuss, dr. william moroni, a forensic pathologist who studies these types of bacteria, e. coli, this strain as well. doctor, good to have you with us this morning. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> let's start with how big of a deal this is. because first in talking to a forensic pathologist which worries me just a bit.
but the cdc head calls this a warning sign more than a catastrophe. for whom is this warning, and what should people watching this show be watching out for? >> what you want to know is that the stakeholders here -- health departments and your hospitals and your doctors -- are involved and engaged. because those are the people that are going to take the actions. number one, the health departments have to be monitoring this all across america and they have to work together with the hospitals. these kind of infections are diagnosed in people after blood cultures. and when people have infections, we need to do the proper containment. people involved have to have really good hand hygiene. we have to have contact precautions. single rooms are more important and keeping all procedures minimally invasive. the number one is antibiotics
stewardship. the doctors prescribing have to stop overprescribing. so that's a really key right there. and health department, hospitals, needs to work together with providers. >> that gets to the heart of the first question. let me get to this one. because we know that this woman who has this strain of e. coli in pennsylvania had not done any international travel. is the expectations this mutated? how is it likely she contracted it? >> okay. the bad news is, she got it from somebody here. she didn't travel. so it's here and that's why we really need to be careful about infections around procedures, urinary tract infections, people that show new signs of pain in urinary tract infections, in men and women, we often have flank pain. but it's not unbearable. when people have really bad flank pain, that's going to be a big issue and keeping wounds
clean. she contracted here. we think that this bacteria came here, not on her, but from something we call a medical tourist. people who leave america and go get surgery in another country because they do this surgery there and it is cheaper or it is a surgery that people don't have the expertise here. and they bring that infection back and then they have contact in america with people like this woman in pennsylvania. >> let's talk about treatment. because typically, the antibiotic that is given if the others don't work, that doesn't fight off this strain of e. coli. the cdc has urged scientists to develop new drugs. how far along that path of something stronger than what's the backstop now are the scientists and the pharmaceutical industry? >> before i became a doctor, i work for the pharmaceutical
industry and they take 10 to 15 years to get a drug to market. in between then, what we have is a really good history of colistin is the antibiotic. we know from resistant staph aureus when they became resistant to single antibiotics, we began to give combinations. the combinations in this case you might give one drug, these names sound funny, but the truth is you go to the hospital and these are going to have to be iv antibiotics. they aren't going to be something you can take out of a bottle from the pharmacy. so we will have a plan, but it may mean mixing antibiotics. the second thing is, we are always talking about antibiotic and we are focused on
antibiotics. the future -- and this is where dr. friedman's a brilliant. he's ghing to reach out to people and say look outside of the box. antibiotic may not always be the answer. probiotics. probiotics. like what you see in yogurt. and the difference between yogurt and provolone cheese is the different microbacteria that make them. we know we give one drug for antibiotic associated diarrhea. we give others. but can we give this to somebody who's been xrcompromised who's sick? probiotics and antibiotics, changing the -- >> doctor, i think you've helped a lot of people. can't say i understood every element of all the science there
but i think we got the gist. on a serious topic, this is something doctors are going to be working to try to find stronger antibiotics to fight. thanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you. a close relative of north korean leader kim jong-un discovered living a low-profile life here in the u.s. what she has to say about her nephew who seems to be so secretive to the rest of the world. plus, a hiker stepped off the appalachian trail and got lost in the woods. she never made it out. but now her journal has been found. her last words to her family next.
fascinating details of emerging of kim youjong-un, the kind of child he was, coming from an aunt who helped raise him. >> this woman now lives in the u.s., that is until "the washington post" tracked them down. >> reporter: this he look like any other couple walking in central park and through times square but now "the washington post" says for nearly 20 years this husband and wife have kept their try identities hidden. they are the aunt and uncle of north korea's kim jong-un.
>> he was an entirely unremarkable american life. >> reporter: she says she is the sister of kim's mother. >> she was someone that i believe she would trust obviously with the lives of her children. >> reporter: she told the post she traveled from north korea to take care of kim and his older brother and sister at this boarding school. >> he was not a good student. >> reporter: sthe wife and husband were interviewed after they filed a law suit. they insisted their faces and their location not be revealed. the couple tells the story of a man who was privileged and from childhood knew would inherent the leadership of north korea. she describes kim as being
obsessed with basketball and he would sleep with a ball under his arm. she told the post there was one day when a clear signal was sent that the young kim would succeed his father, his eighth birthday. >> there was a big party for him in pyongyang and he was presented with a general's uniform on that day and there were real generals who bowed to that 8-year-old kid. >> she says from that moment his behavior changed. he was focussed and short tempered. >> he was prone to having tent rums. when his mother said he shouldn't be spending so much time playing basketball, he should being, he won't happy and went on a hunger strike.
>> >> reporter: in 1988 the couple sent asylum and then taken to germany. when they got to the united states they received housing and money from the cia. the cia would not comment on the story. her husband says he wants to go back to pyongyang for a visit. one analyst said that would be a suicidal act. she's trying to talk her husband out of it. does donald trump have a real plan to take california or is he just california dreaming. he says he can flip the democratic strong hold to his side this election. could that be as likely as georgia going for a democratic? the mayor of atlanta weighs in. words from a hiker, the body of a lost hiker is found and
with that her journal and her final words to her family. wi probably got that question 3 to 4 times a week. i'd always get asked if i was asian or moroccan or something else. so i jumped at the chance to take the dna test through ancestry. and my results ended up being african, european and asian. it just confirmed what i guess people had seen in me all my life. i do feel like ancestry helped give me a sense of identity.

here's the plan. you want a family and a career, but most of the time you feel like you're trying to wrangle a hurricane. the rest of the time, they're asleep. then one day, hr schedules a meeting with you out of the blue. and it's the worst 19 minutes of your career. but you don't sweat it because you and your advisor have prepared for this. and when the best offer means you're moving to the middle of nowhere, the boys say they hate the idea. but you pretend it's not so bad. and years later at thanksgiving, when one of them says what he's thankful for most, is this house, you realize you didn't plan for any of this you wouldn't have done it any other way. with the right financial partner, progress is possible.
every year an estimated 2 million people hike some portion of the app lashen trail. more of that story is on our website. there's so much news to talk to you about this morning. let's get right to you it. the next hour of your dnew day right now. it could be i'll have to debate because you know what, if you're in first place you don't want to really debate a guy
that's in second place. >> i heard he was going to debate me and then i heard he was not going to debate me. well, mr. trump what are you afraid of. >> she says she was sexually assaulted by a baylor student last march and after she tried to report the attack it went nowhere. how do we prevent this particular bacteria from spreading and where are the new antibiotics going to come from? i wish you a good morning as we enter the 8:00 hour here. >> good to be with you this saturday and every saturday. i'm victor blackwell. >> look at you. this boy has grown in many ways. he has been a hero over the years and superman is his. >> i know you are going to remember this story. he suffered senseless cruelty. nine years later this iraqi boy
considers himself lucky. we're going to show you why. you're not going to want to miss that one. first up donald trump campaigning in deep blue territory giving california a little bit of love after clenching the republican nomination. >> protesters outside his rally in san diego not returning the favor. definitely got prietty dicey ou there. 35 people arrested as police used pepper spray to clear the protesters. scott, protests outside trump rallies, we've been seeing a little more of that, but what specifically happened in california? >> reporter: good morning. the challenge was to try to keep trump protesters away from trump supporters because that is
really where we saw the tensions flare. at one point bottles and eggs were being thrown between the two sides and that's when police moved in and used pepper spray a few times. trump's policy and his plan to build the wall is the central issue there. late last night trump tweeted to the san diego police fantastic job on handling the thugs who tried to disrupt our peaceful and well attended rally. greatly appreciate it. that was outside. inside the rally trump was making some pretty bold announcements, chief among them is he could win california in a general election despite the fact that the state has not voted republican in a presidential race since 1988. it is a state with a high latino
population. trump says it's a strategy to focus on 15 states in the general election including states where republicans have not won for a long time. >> one of the things that people are watching was the possibility that there would be this trump/bernie sanders debate but we know late yesterday donald trump came out and said it wasn't going to happen. what are you hearing about the reasoning there? >> reporter: it's hard to believe that this whole idea was floated or first floated on late night tv and it's had a lot of people talking, but as many predicted it looks like it's not going to happen. both trump and bernie sanders seemed to be on board and according to the sanders campaign two different tv networks were willing to sign on as well, but yesterday trump backed out saying in a statement now that i'm the presumptive republican nominee it seems inappropriate i would debate the second place finisher. this is what bernie sanders had to say in reaction.
>> i hope that he changes his mind again. mr. trump is known to change his mind many times in a day. i would -- trump is a bully. he's a big tough guy. what are you afraid of. why do you not want to see a debate here in california and obviously all across this country. >> reporter: so now this debate is off the table the new challenge for bernie sanders is holding on to the spotlight ahead of the democratic california primary which is ten days away and a new poll out of california shows sanders and hillary clinton in a dead heat. >> thank you. let's discuss now here with me is the atlanta mayor, he's a hillary supporter and the former chairwoman of the tea party express and a trump supporter. good to have both of you here this morning. >> thank you. >> mary i want to start with you and get your intake on this too because the next six months
cannot look like what we saw in san diego last night. so what do the candidates and parties and local city leaders do to prevent what we saw in san diego. >> i think we have the responsibility to prepare and prepare to make sure our cities are well organized for these events but donald trump also bears a share of responsibility. this doesn't apply to a large variety of campaign. there is one campaign that has these kind of challenges so when he comes to our cities we'll have to prepare. >> is this something that the donald trump, the onus is on him. >> no i don't think so. what happened in san diego last night from my understanding was organized by the democrat party in san diego. i'm not surprised we're seeing this. people are kerconcerned. i think it reflect how people feel about politics in america
right now but some people are concerned that donald trump is going to win this election and so they're exerting their frustration and coming out and protesti protesting. this they have a right to protest but it's the violence that crosses the line. >> protesting is one thing and there were about three dozen people arrested. we don't know the political affiliation breakdown of the people arrested yesterday. >> and it was totally unconfirmed that was the california democratic party or the local democratic party. that's a trump talking point. >> no, it's not. >> you can look at multiple donald trump rallies that had this kind of violence and this kind of activity at the rallies. so to narrowly identify a particular group is inappropriate given donald trump's record. >> i disagree. >> could they come out and say something -- i think both sides will say they don't want to see the violence. can they come out with a joint statement, all three of them,
and say this has to stop. >> yes if donald trump will agree to not yes rhetoric like get the bum out of here and i'll pay your legal fees and encourage behavior inappropriate for a party leader. so if he will have ground rules and will stop engaging in rhetoric that stops this kind of behavior and encourages his audience to lash out at people who have come to hear this message i think we can avoid this. >> you don't think this was instigated by people coming to protest. >> no. there are rallies that we can review and see this is a consistent pattern with his rallies. >> there was some video on last night on the anderson cooper show that there was a person attending the rally and they were leaving and as they were leaving they were being followed
by the protesters. we don't know who the protesters were supporting. >> there have been protesters outside bernie sanders rallies too. the republican party had their big convention several weeks ago and look what happened outside of this. he may have had some rhetoric in the beginning but he's gone from that. that's not what he's talking about. he's going in there and talking about what he's going do for america and the people that come to his rallies should be able to enter those events and be safe and not be concerned about their security or safety. there was that gentleman last night that was followed as he left the event. >> let's talk about what happened inside and some of the name calling. reporters and pundy haits have saying when is donald trump going to make that presidential turn and give up the name calling. he apparently wants to continue. let's watch. >> it was so sad because
everything she said was like a lie. i wonder if i could start instead of saying crooked hillary, which is a very accurate description, i wonder if i could say you know remember lying -- it goes back to judgment and competence. she's not competent. if you look she's essentially not competent. it goes to her judgment and level of competence and she's not competent and it's always been this way. >> so questions of comp tentsy and the name calling is that going to be the hallmark as he moves into the general? many supporters and detractors have waited for this pivot. is it going to come. >> i don't know. i am not affiliated with the campaign. i'm a donald trump supporter, but i want donald trump to win is what i want and what we've seen as this campaign has progressed that he has more and more and more support.
people are coming out and supporting him. that tells you something. people want somebody that's going to stand up and fight and call somebody out for what they've done or -- i mean to just have a backbone. if it were -- let me say this. that if mitt romney had gone after barack obama as hard as he's gone after donald trump we would have probably a president romney right now. what donald trump is talking about is benghazi and hillary clinton's problem with the e-mail. the e-mail is a serious problem. >> this is mitt romney had gone after president obama it's a republican fantasy. let donald trump do all he wants to do. he forgets that surges come on the other side. what hasn't happened in american politics is for a standard bearer to encourage members of their party to do random acts of violence. >> he has not said that. >> this is the problem you all
have. there's video which is ir refutable that in donald trump rallies when people who support him have hit other people he has said from the podium i will pay your legal fees. that is unprecedented in american politics. and while it's great for a plural of the party. >> he continues to call elizabeth warren pocahontapocah. she has hit him back on twitter. you have been aggressive to people -- i wouldn't say aggressive. you have been responding to people through twitter, people who have attacked you, is that the right way in a campaign to go after an opponent. >> that's subject to styles but i haven't engaged in ethnic
smears against people by calling them pocahontas. the bottom line is we're getting ready to have a great campaign over the next six months that you're going to cover. donald trump can continue to execute the politics of subtraction. he offends women, black people, gays and latinos and he believes that juices his base. >> he has more support. >> he doesn't have more support. bill clinton got 2 million more votes than donald trump has. he had a good polling week. we're getting ready to see in the united states does the politics of subtraction work. >> i know we have to go but are you comfortable with donald trump calling elizabeth warren pocahontas is that appropriate. >> i wish none of them would
call each other names. >> are you comfortable with him using pocahontas. >> i don't like anybody calling anybody names. i will say when people get tired of it, they will walk away and they won't support donald trump and what we've seen is that his support grows and also i want to say he did not come up with that name. that names been out there a long time. >> he used it. >> don't say he started it. >> we can say he used it, right? >> i will say women support donald trump because we're concerned about safety. >> thank you both for being with us. so if you don't prefer donald trump or hillary clinton, the lib tarn party is hoping they have a third candidate to get behind. we're talking to the lib tearan
candidate. that and a lot more. also we speak to an alleged rape victim who says that she's one of several people who felt pushed aside by baylor university. >> reporter: she says she was sexually assaulted by a student last march and after she tried to report it it went nowhere. >> if you believe that someone was raped wouldn't you do something about it, wouldn't you? a vintage fighter plane crashes into the hudson killing the pilot. rachel crane is on the scene live. >> reporter: behind me is the scene of last night's incident. today efforts are focussed on recovery of that plane. more of that after the break. the big hilton

as william gordon from key west, florida. the plane took its first flight in 1941. this belongs to the american air power museum in new york. witnesses say he crashed and they say him attempt to get out of the plane, he just didn't make it in time. we're joined live from new york city. what's happening there this morning? >> reporter: behind me the scene of last night's search and rescue operation. now the single seater world war ii plane krabd into the hudson at 7:30, several agencies responding to the incident and this is a heavily populated portion of the hudson. you have running paths and restaurants on either side and as a result many witnesses to this incident and there was an individual on a sail boat who jumped in to try to aid the
pilot. many witnesses saw that pilot struggling. take a listen. >> it's scarey but i feel bad that whoever was in there never came out. >> reporter: now this plane had taken off from long island and was participating in a photo shoot for an upcoming air show at the time of the incident. today's efforts are being focussed on the recovery of that plane. law enforcement officials tell cnn that within the hour is the best time to try to recover the plane because of low tide. it's interesting to point out that the location of this crash not far from the 2009 miracle on the hudson when a commercial jet liner crush landed on the hudson. everybody survived that crash and unfortunately last night's incident did not have the sameosame outco outcome. a baylbaylor university --
an alleged victim of one of those assaults says the school failed at students and didn't live up to its own values. cnn talked to that woman. >> reporter: the chairman of baylor's board says details of the internal investigation were shocking and outrageous but he wasn't fired. the internal report vidicates her and many young women she says it's clear the university shunned them after they reported being sexually assaulted. >> this is crap. if you really believed someone
was raped wouldn't you do something? right? like especially like with the high christian standards they report to have. >> reporter: she says she was sexually assaulted by a student last march and after she tried to report the attack it went nowhere. >> if you believed someone was raped wouldn't you do something urgently about it. that's the thing, we don't see urgency. we see we'll coordinate this next week. i don't think they understand like the weight that has on us as survivorers. >> reporter: baylors board says it was horrified by a failure of the institution to protect female students. the assaults which involved football players occurred in recent years after the football team has become a national contender, a massive new stadium
was built on campus but critics say the sexual assault investigations were covered up to protect the school's image. >> they had knowledge of a huge problem of sexual assault on their campus especially through the athletic program and they just did nothing, they did absolutely really nothing to protect these female students. >> reporter: the head football coach will be fired and ken starr who investigated the bill clinton scandal was removed as president but kept as a law school professor. neither has responded to a request for comment. in a telephone call conference with reporters officials refused to say which ken starr wasn't fired outright. >> we don't talk about individual people. again, we have our expectations for people and their leadership.
>> reporter: baylor says it released key finding but that report does not specify just how many sexual assault victims there were or how many cases it investigated. we've asked but haven't gotten an answer. >> thank you so much. the libertarian party has its best chance yet possibly to prove their viable third-party choice. my interview with both party's leading candidates next within this is 100% useful for a 100% fresh mouth. what's it like to not feel 100% fresh? we don't know. we swish listerine®. as do listerine® users. the very people we studied in the study of bold. people who are statistically more likely to stand up to a bully. do a yoga handstand. and be in a magician's act. listerine® kills 99% of bad breath germs so you can feel 100% in life. bring out the bold™.

major party's candidates to push voters its way. the party holding its nomination, the convention this weekend. the front-runner gary johnson is a two term governor of new mexico and run for president as a libertarian in 2012. he earned 1.3 million votes. his vice president is the former massachusetts governor who ran for libertarian in new york and was one time nominated as embassador to new mexico. >> i asked about wells relationship with clinton who nominated him as embassador to new mexico and whether or not governor johnson one time ceo of a company that marketed cannabis products if he would use cannabis in the white house. >> you were nominated to be embassador of new mexico by
president clinton. what is your relationship with the clintons? >> it's good. i worked with mrs. clinton back in the '70s on the nixon impeachment. bill clinton i got along with very well as fellow governors and i was generally supportive of him as president as well. >> when is the last time you've spoken with the clintons. >> i don't think i've spoken with her in two years. i would see them in new york. >> you ran for new york governor. do you have any relationship with donald trump. >> i knew donald socially in new york, that's all. but we did see him and melania around town a little bit. >> what's your opinion of him. >> there's the donald trump that you meet socially and he's a generous person. some of the stuff he's running on i think is absolutely chaotic. i'm going do this to mexico. that's a violation of the north
american free trade agreement which is the supreme law of the land i'm going to do this to china, that's a violation of the world trade organization rules exposing the united states to sanctions there. so we would be the roeg nation. >> donald trump is no stranger to name calling. hillary clinton has said she's not going to get into the gutter with him. during the february libertarian debate he called him a word that's so vulgar i can't say it on cnn. is that the way you're going to wage this campaign. >> no. it was a really poor attempt at humor. it was a total misfire. i apologize and i'm better than that and you won't see that at all. >> how do you then go after donald trump because some of the mon kers he's handed out have stuck and worked. >> you don't go after anybody. i was never a member of the
never trump crowd. i declined that investigatioita. i think he deserves a lot of credit for what he's been able to do. >> would you call him a friend. >> no, no, no. i would call the clintons closer to being friends. >> right before you announced your 2016 candidacy for president, you were a maker and marketer of cannabis products. would a president johnson use cannabis products in the white house. >> no, i wouldn't. i haven't had a drink in 29 years and no i don't think -- i think i really have a proven record of discipline being most people and no i don't think you want to have the president of the united states impaired or potentially being impaired in any way whatsoever. >> that's just a portion of the conversation. you can see the full interview
on our website, cnn.com. again cnn is at the libertarian convention all weekend. we have live coverage beginning this afternoon in the c"cnn newsroo newsroom". why scenes like this in san diego are keeping officials awake at night in cleveland. what the city is doing to try to prevent unrest at this summer's convention. also, from burn victim in iraq to this teenager in california, this is a journey so many people doubted would ever be possible. you're going to remember this young man. you're going to see him as a little boy and it's going to spark your memory and you're going to learn where he is now and you're only going to see it here on cnn. all i can think about is getting relief. only nicorette mini has a patented fast-dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i only choose nicorette mini. ugh. heartburn.g ] sorry ma'am. no burning here.
this is the scene outside a donald trump rally in san diego. police clad in riot gear. at least 35 people were arrested. this is a scene that has become familiar outside the presumptive nominee's rallies. we explain how officials are scrambling to beef up cleveland's police force and head off possible trouble. >> reporter: bottles and rocks thrown at police. protesters stopping police cars and smoke grenades, violence and chaos erupts outside a donald trump rally in albuquerque.
it raises concerns as trump readies for the convention this summer. >> i think the people in cleveland are thinking about this. there's no doubt in my mind they are having lots of meetings. >> reporter: for months observers have worried about violent protests at both party conventions, first in cleveland and then in philadelphia after scenes like this there are new concerns about cleveland's readiness. the city has about 1,200 police officers but we have learned they are actively recruiting officers from other cities and hope to have at least 4,000 officers on the streets for the convention. they've ordered 2,000 sets of riot gear. but the head of the cleveland's police union says it's not getting there fast enough. >> we still don't have the personal safety gear that we need. i'm concerned we don't have enough time to train with the equipment. >> reporter: but city officials are confident. >> we are prepared.
>> reporter: officials say this he will set up steel barriers and they have a special route for protest marchers laid out. to counter the kind of violence that sometimes plague trump events the secret service is on the ground in cleveland and philadelphia setting up security perimeters around the convention centers. we're told law enforcement is working confidential informants and monitoring communications and social media. >> are there an arkansasists in the group that may attempt to agitate simply to provoke riots. >> reporter: they say there's a hidden threat. >> my biggest concern would be a hack organization taking down the grid or hacking into a critical system and disrupting the event from 2,000 miles away. >> reporter: cleveland city officials respond to that
criticism by telling cnn they've spent 1 1/2 years preparing this. they say they'll have all the equipment and officers they need on the streets and they say they're ready. democratic strategist with us now and the political editor for the rights alerts. when we look at what is happening in cleveland do you think there could potentially be the same kind of problem in philadelphia with the democratic convention given the fact that at the nevada state democratic convention we saw some unrest there with a chair being thrown by a bernie sanders supporter? just wondering how potentially potent do you think it could be there? >> passions are high in this election on all sides but the city of philadelphia is going to be ready there. the former and current mayors
are very involved and they're making all the preparations they need to make sure things don't get out of hand. >> i want to read donald trump's tweet that he sent out this morning and show you some of these pictures from san diego. he tweeted out, san diego pd, fantastic job on handling the thugs who tried to disrupt our peaceful and well attended rally. greatly appreciate it. the fact that he used the term thugs that's not going to win him any support from maybe some people who haven't necessarily made up their mind, some might say. do you think it's time to tone down that kind of rhetoric. >> i sit there and look at what actually the actions that happened out there. when you have people jumping on cop cars and going aggressive against police officers and knocking a horse down and throwing trash the size of tennis balls at police officers and hitting people, when you look at the violence what other
term do you use? those folks are not law abiding citizens. i have to wonder what other term could you use to describe them. for the conventions, you have attended several conventions. riots and protesters at conventions is nothing new. i really have a lot of -- i think we're going to be prepared for them on both conventions and i give the cleveland police right now a lot of respect for actually preparing for this ahead of time and we know it's coming and i think it's where you see forces like what we saw in albuquerque who were surprised because of the protests, those are the ones where we have the most problems. i think cleveland and philadelphia the law enforcement will be well prepared and set up. >> both hillary clinton and donald trump are very divisive candidates, both of their unfav unfavorables in a 50% plus range. with that knowledge we know there most likely will be
protesters at both of these conventions. how do you think hillary clinton and bernie sanders can as candidates try to tamp things down? do they have that ability when you look at the crowds and how passionate people are? >> yeah. part of it is people see what they want to say and making sure when you go too far you're going too far. i don't think donald trump has done enough on the other side. when he originally started out he was talking about punching prote protesters from the podium so we need to be clear about what our values are in our country and what we believe is political discourse and i don't think the other side is doing that. >> how can say that? you're looking at the protesters right now outside the donald trump rallies. they are not a part of the republican party. you look at the protesters at
bernie sanders -- >> we don't know what they're part of. >> they're more than likely not gop members and to sit there and say you know how to stop these prosecu protesters we stop that now. all candidates should stand up and tell their supporters to not do the actions that are happening right now will whether it's at a donald trump rally or bernie sanders rally. the republicans is not doing it. >> do you want to respond? >> we in the democratic party and you saw debbie wasserman schultz being clear about this. i think you'll see more cops come out in the lead up to philadelphia and cleveland and i don't think the other side has been that clear on this issue. >> i do want to clarify the 35 people that were arrested we do know the background, or if they were all protesters or if any of
them were affiliated with any candidate just to be very clear here. there's still a lot of questions about that but we appreciate your voices here. thank you. >> thank you. you'll want to stay with us for this story. an iraqi boy severely yuinjured he has a new chance for a new life. >> reporter: jailhouhe was attas hope. >> his amazing recovery and story of hope

doctors say they've found a strain of e-coli resistant to all antibiotics including one that doctors use when all other drugs fail. >> this is the first drug resistant bacteria of the type seen in the united states and it could be a warning sign of what's to come. here is cnn's medical correspondent. >> reporter: the centers for disease control is sounding a warning bell about antibiotic resistance. the reason for this, it pertains
to an antibiotic called collistan. it's supposed to be a super antibiotic and work against everything. in certain parts of the world we've seen that there are bacteria resistant and now we've seen it in the united states. there was a patient that was being treated that was resistant. for this woman she appears to be okay, they found other drugs that would work. but the concern is that other bacteria may become resistant and for some patients this is the antibiotic of last resort, there may be nothing else's that can be tried. the bottom line is doctors need to stop overprescribing ant byesbye byics. doctors shouldn't overprescribe them and patients shouldn't
