3:00 am
hey, everybody. good morning. it's sunday the 3rd of april, 2016. i'm anna kooiman. this is "fox & friends" weekend. the battle for the badger state. we are days away from the wisconsin primary and donald trump looking to keep the trump train rolling and the feud to go off with cruz, making his unprecedented move yet. what he did, straight ahead. and this morning, the white house on high alert as hundreds protest pot laws by lighting up a 50-foot joint on the president's front lawn. where were the cop? and a moment bringing the
3:01 am
internet to tears. >> i got in. i'm going to college! i got in. >> she got in. a teenager with down's syndrome opens a college acceptance letter. that student and her mom will join us us live this hour. "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ take me out to the ball game >> oh, it feels like baseball weather, it's 20 degrees outside. happy opening day. >> windy and snowy. >> yeah. >> finish your baseball pics -- i think there's four games today. the first one kicks off at 1:05 in pittsburgh and janice said it will be freezing in pittsburgh later on. >> we'll have some fun later on. >> send us your baseball pictures. >> and peter doocy's in the house. >> thanks for having me. >> fresh off your big villanova victory. we'll get to that in a moment.
3:02 am
>> fresh is right. >> but first some politics, because two days until voters hit the polls in wisconsin. >> yeah, front-runner donald trump and ted cruz staying on the attack. >> garrett tenney has the very latest from the campaign trail. >> reporter: good morning. with two days until the tws primary, donald trump and ted cruz are not leaving much if anything off the table. with cruz leading, trump was relentless in his personal attacks on the texas senator throughout the day. but the donald also spent a lot of time trying to explain recent controversial comments he made about nato, abortion, and allowing japan and south korea to acquire nuclear weapons. trump told supporters all of the comments were taken out of context and blamed the media for making him look bad. >> there's such deception and such lying. in fact, when sarah came in today -- i saw her this morning. we were talking for a little while. i said this politics is really a dishonest business.
3:03 am
they say things and i'll go into it because i'm all about making america great again. very simple. very simple. >> reporter: and ted cruz took a quick detour to north dakota's republican convention to try and win other -- over voters there who are going to select 25 of the state's 28 delegates later today. he was the only candidate to make an appearance in person and he praised the state's energy industry while promising to keep the federal government out of the way. and he added this line about conservative values. >> you know, it's easy to talk about making america great again. you can even print that on the baseball cap, but the real question is do you understand principles and values that make america great in person?
3:04 am
>> reporter: not a subtle jab at trump and all the candidates are in wisconsin making one last push for the 42 delegates which could help trump win the nomination outright or give ted cruz and john kasich a chance to win it at the convention. >> thanks, garrett. well, meanwhile, donald trump is having to walk back some of the comments on abortion and he's trying to do what he can to get some of the women voters. three out of four women say they would not vote for him, even one out of three republican women say they would not vote for him, they would be upset. >> yeah. on the heels of having to walk back the abortion comments and his campaign manager, corey lewandowski, facing charges after michelle fields said he grabbed and bruised her so we're seeing a different side of donald trump though. he have's actually -- he's not apologizing but he said he regrets something. remember the war of the wives between heidi cruz and melania trump, the picture that he
3:05 am
retweeted, the pretty picture of melania and not so nice one of heidi, he regrets it. if i had to do it, i wouldn't have sent it, he says. >> what this shows is a kind of retail politicking that donald trump had not done before. because it comes about when maureen dowd said when you retweeted that picture of heidi cruz she said you lost my sister's vote. he said, tell your sister i'm improving. >> look, my wife is campaigning for me this week. melania is out there, i'm going to turn to my daughter ivanka to help handle the woman's side of things. >> how is senator cruz responding to this? >> take his apology? >> well, here he is with the answer. >> you know, it's gotten to the point where i could not care less about donald trump. [ cheers and applause ]
3:06 am
because he says it's a mistake, that's fine, it's a mistake. my focus is to ignore all of the nonsense and noise and focus on the issues of the -- that the people of wisconsin care about. >> there are women who like them and they're strong trump supporters and there's an opinion piece in "the new york post" which asks the question who are the women backing donald trump? if these numbers are to be believed one in three women would have a problem with trump winning the campaign. they're security mom, they don't really care about the main, traditional women's values issues. they're security moms, women who vote not on traditional women's issues. education, abortion, et cetera. but on foreign policy. >> yeah. the people who vote on other -- women who vote on issues other than those pertaining to their
3:07 am
uterus. >> it's a news story that the woman might want to vote for the front-runner of the two major parties. but it's a problem for him. >> like the democrats say, hey, if you're a woman and you don't vote for us, there's something wrong with you. >> right. it's hillary clinton. she's got the coronation. if you're a woman you have to fall in line. >> how is that fair? it's -- there's such a double standard. >> speaking of the race on the democratic side, hillary clinton anders and bernie sanders said hey, i want to debate you ahead of the april the 19th primary, she said i'll debate you if you change your tone. there's more squabbling. been quite a scrappy week between the two of them. and now we're learning that they are going to debate. they're just negotiating where they're going to do it and what time. she apparently wanted to do it on the night of some ncaa basketball game and they were like no, we want people to see the debate. >> yeah. really something that hillary clinton is the one who is say g saying, we need more debates because is that something you
3:08 am
would expect a strong front-runner to want? because the headlines that's come out of the debates it's never good. why would she want if she was in a strong opinion to debate? >> a great point. look, if she loses wisconsin, that's a huge story. if she loses and gets trounced in wisconsin, that's a huge story. then the new york primary. she's the senator from new york. >> that would be such a psychological blow. >> and remember the dnc tried to hide the debates and then hillary clinton emerged very strong during the debates. it was an opportunity for her to answer the narrative questions that bernie sanders has been laying out. >> she's still upset with his tone, that he points back to her being cozy with wall street. not happy about this. >> she tweeted this out. sort of hedging her bets.
3:09 am
you always had my back. i'm going to try, that means they're not doing to do it. i'm going to try to make it to your party. >> your backlash on twitter going really, you're putting loopholes in your tweets? >> you want to contrast it on the other side, trump everything he says, he says i will do it. even if it's something big and broad that would be really tough for a president to do, he says this is the problem, it will be better. not i'm going to try. >> donald trump is predicting a massive recession, but he has the plans to fix it. >> yeah, an interesting interview. a long ranging interview. we'll talk about it later in the show, bob woodward's interview with him. but first, big election coverage is starting tonight on fnc. greta hosts a special town hall with donald trump, 8:00 p.m. he'll be taking questions from the crowd. don't miss that. then on monday -- >> all three candidates are in primetime. john kasich is with greta, followed by an all new "o'reilly
3:10 am
factor" and ted cruz sits down with megyn kelly and donald trump on hannity. >> it's leading up to live on tuesday, here on fnc. at the moment we'll switch gears and tell you what else is making news, starting with a fox news alert. the brussels airport opening the doors for the first time today since last month's deadly terror attack. here's a live look outside that airport right now. only a few flights will take off today to italy, athens, portugal. the airport says it will take months to be back at full capacity. delta's suspended all flights from atlanta to brussels to 2017 saying demand is down. 270 people were hurt in the blasts. one person is dead, five injured when a plane crash lands and plows into the back of a car parked on the side of the road. the passenger in the back seat was killed on impact. the driver and two others are
3:11 am
recovering. the pilot is being dragged from the cockpit. the pilot and passenger both seriously hurt. it's unclear what caused the plane to crash. witnesses say it was scary. >> it was pretty nerve-racking seeing the plane over the top and hit the road and then hit that car. i didn't know if there was anybody in the car because it wasn't moving or anything. former san francisco catcher matt nokes said he once owned that very plane and even crash landed it on the highway 16 years ago. the grass is greener at the white house lawn yesterday. what do you think of this? pot activists lighting none protest claiming that obama hasn't done enough for marijuana reform nationwide. protesters also paraded a giant joint. no arrests were made though.
3:12 am
>> we heard -- >> yeah. peter, i'm going to -- you read this story. >> gladly. this year's final four was a blowout. number one north carolina entering -- ending syracuse's cinderella run, 86-66 and much the same between villanova and oklahoma. 95-51. the largest margin of victory in final four history. the championship match now set, villanova, my alma mater is going to take on north carolina monday night tip-off, 9:19 eastern. >> i think we have to go -- >> fresh off that victory yesterday, i think we have some photos. security cam footage at the bar. >> it was great. so this is -- i just looked -- you know, e-mail us -- hey, if you're alumni in the new york area, go to this giant bar. so we went. luckily it was the early game.
3:13 am
6:00. and people went crazy. it was so cool. villanova is a school on the small side compared to the others that always do well in basketball. >> right. >> and i have been looking for an excuse to wear my villanova tie for the last five years. yeah, some of my good buddies from college who were also out last night that's us celebrating at the end. last time they made the final four, i was a senior in college. >> what year was that? >> 2009. and drove my car from philadelphia to detroit and they lost pretty bad. >> well, good victory. so we'll be watching that. congrats, peter. all right, coming up on the show, two weeks removed from the terror attack in brussels and a new report says more than 5,000 jihadists are on the loose in europe right now. how are they slipping through the cracks? we'll talk about that. and plus, it's not the scene you expect to see outside the rink. hockey fans sent flying from an escalator. the wild moments caught on camera. ♪

as the brussels airport reopens today, there are questions if the officials missed crucial warning signs leading up to the bombings. an a.p. report revealing that the airport bomber ibrahim passed through several background checks. what does this say about the intel jegs sharing? joining us right now is dr. zuhdi jasser. >> good morning. good to be with you.
3:18 am
>> there are countries now in the europe and the middle east who are concerned with getting these terrorist foreign fighters, but once they kick them out of their country they don't care what happens. is that about right? >> yeah. it really -- every time we go through this, peter, it's like we do this postmortem after a major attack and we wonder, well, how did this happen? we realize as we peel the onion we realize it's the sheer volume of the jihadists and the lack of coordination within the european countries and countries having different strategies and responding differently to communications they get. and the second one is more important, the lack of vetting for any ideological profiling. the european union does not vet for political ideology as far as islamists and jihadists. they said they're foreign
3:19 am
terrorist, not islamists. why? they're not vetting for the ideology that they're actually creating in their open countries. >> how would that kind of vetting work though? do you ask, are you a terrorist, islamic radical, how would that work? >> well, this is the problem because we're asks the terrorists themselves or the islamists that are coming, have you ever thought of committing an act of terrorism and of course they'll say no. if we look at principles that are a firewall between freedom and those that are islamists so we need to find out about caliphatism. do they believe in jihad, especially militant jihad. there are ways to vet. in the cold war we did this with communism and the countries we use to help us would be like in the cold war use cuba to help us
3:20 am
vet the communists. those are countries we would never trust in telling us who is coming into the west that are communists. >> why is it that turkey and saudi arabia, why don't they ever tip us off, hey, we found this guy and we deported him. keep an eye on him. he could do something bad, why don't they ever do that? >> well, because for them to tip us off truly would be to basically expose the ideologies within their own countries. saudi arabia is wahhabi islamists are radical militants in their government that are theocrats that are basically isis is their stepchild, so yes, they may say they're with us in exposing the terrorists that want to do acts of terror, but they're only focused on the last week or two and we always find out that that's very late and if we're going to vet against the thousands coming into europe we have to use our own vetting for our own ideals. the secularism, freedom and
3:21 am
democracy against caliphatism which they're part of. >> thank you dr. jasser. we have a great political panel, right after this. nothing else. it's a natural source of fiber and five essential vitamins. amazin prune juice and amazin prune light. from sunsweet, the feel good fruit.

3:26 am
lock it up. people are writing him off. >> wisconsin may not matter much in delegate count, although he has to hit that number because of the convention. if he could be blocked the establishment is uniting trying to find somebody else to come in and present and cruz is trying to seize this opportunity to make his case, although i don't think he's making it very well, as well as kasich. this is a point where you have two parties who are neck and neck. the establishment who is unifying to find alternatives and then you have donald trump who needs to win this. if he can't win it, that shows he's not this perfect candidate he's laying himself out to be. >> we saw this in iowa. loses pretty handily in iowa and storms through new hampshire. >> what happens in wisconsin is completely meaningless. first of all, donald trump can take wisconsin. if he doesn't, he'll get new jersey and california and new
3:27 am
york and he's going to steam roll right in. he'll get the magic number and all this contest the convention stuff is crap and not going to happen. >> wisconsin, not a big deal? 42 delegates up for grab, not a big deal? >> it's a big deal. i don't think it's the make or break moment for trump if he wins it or not. as you said, we have heard it this before. if i had a nickel where donald trump had a bad woke and we said that's the end of the trump train i would be much wealthier that's for sure. i think it's a turning point. i think we will see a different donald trump after this week. whether he wins or not. i think his beloved burgers might have some wisconsin cheese that have a little bit of holes on it this week. because he's had a rough week and he's had a rough week not because he's insulted someone or made outlandish statements. he's had a rough week because he's starting to show he needs more depth on the issues and people are starting to worry about that. so i think that's where he's going to improve. i think he knows the issues. >> you don't buy that though?
3:28 am
>> no no. he has a big problem with women. if you look at the numbers that we were talking about on the show. three out of four women who say -- they would be upset with a donald trump presidency. one out of three on the republican side say that. >> i don't buy that. >> i don't see that at all. i'm running for congress. i'm not delusional. i'm running for congress, i'm out there every day. i speak with women nonstop who are republican, some who aren't republican. women love this guy. >> an anecdote though. >> it's not. >> but the numbers don't show that. >> every single poll -- >> no gop nominee has won a general election without number one, having very strong numbers with women. and number two, having some sort of background on foreign policy, some sort of strength on foreign policy. he's avoiding the areas, i think it's suspicious. >> i don't think he's avoiding them at all. one thing you have to give donald trump credit for, he's disparaged women no more than
3:29 am
anyone else. he's disparaged everyone else, and that's why people like -- >> let me -- >> let me talk as a man here. >> let me finish. every single primary, they say he's not doing to carry minority, he's not going to carry women and he has. so those polling numbers are not adding up. that's -- >> we saw that in south carolina. >> women like this guy. talk to women who work with him. listen -- >> that doesn't translate into votes. >> it does. >> how? >> the poll numbers are showing that women like this guy. >> are you saying -- >> they are? >> are you saying when people get a phone call, do you like donald trump, they look at their husband and say, i don't like him. but when they go into the booth -- >> we're a woman we can change our minds any time. >> 73% of women -- donald trump says it like it is and he's powerful. >> five seconds left. hillary clinton, sander, who wins wisconsin?
3:30 am
>> sanders. i think it will be a big piece of momentum. every time he pulls above he'll do better. >> sanders will take wisconsin and there's a big problem for hillary clinton than donald trump than ted cruz. >> i think hillary will ebb and flow until the end. if there's no indictment she'll take it. but if there is -- >> unbelievable. sanders is up five points right now in wisconsin. >> thank you. lovely to debate at 6:30. if you're not awake, you are right now. a scary scene as a father is dragged by a school bus. watch. >> hey, stop the bus! >> holy smokes. you will hear from that dad, straight ahead. then, have you ever gone to the starbucks and they totally get your name wrong like they do to me? they do it all the time to me. coming up the one name that the coffee giant won't say out loud. it's not coyleton.

4:03 am
yesterday to make his pitch to voters at north dakota's republican convention which included going after trump. earlier in the day in wisconsin, cruz said he's over the inczyz ant attacks and lies coming from trump. >> you know, it's gotten to the point where i could not care less about donald trump. [ applause ] my focus is to ignore the nonsense and noise and focus on the issues the people of wisconsin care about. >> in wisconsin where trump is ten points behind cruz in the latest polls, the donald spent a lot of time trying to explain a string of controversial comments about nato, abortion, and allowing japan and north korea to acquire nuclear weapons. trump told supporters his comments were taken out of context, and the media was trying to make him look bad. he also blamed ted cruz for lying about him on the campaign trail. >> there's such deception and
4:04 am
lying -- in fact, when sarah came in today, i saw her this morning, and we were talking for a while. i said, this politics is really a dishonest business. they say things. i'll go into it because i'm all it making america great again. >> trump is also trying to improve his image with women voters who he's become unpopular with recently. he announced yesterday that his wife melania will join him on the campaign trail tomorrow. >> we haven't seen a lot from her. she's at his victory rallies. she was there after the fox newschannel debate. greta did an interview with her. she's a beautiful lady. she's going to be a big sur gatt for him. he said in an interview recently that she initially asked him ton run. she said, if you run, you're going to win. >> and he's been answering questions lately from reporters in long interviews. he sat down with maureen dowd from "the new york times," talked about the women's issue. that's why melania may be on the
4:05 am
campaign trail because of that. he also sat down with bob woodward for a 90-minute interview, bob woodward from the "washington post." we know his history and the watergate scandal. and his reporting there. he sat down in this long-ranging interview and talked about a host of things including the way our kuhn -- where our country is he headed. he says it's headed toward a major recession. he has friends on wall street, the stock market. he says he doesn't need these guys but said, i wouldn't put my money at all in the stark. we're heading for a major problem. >> he says he's the lone ranger, what he's saying is countering what economic forecasters are saying about the economy. he has a plan to do this, to pay down the national debt after $19 trillion -- >> -- renegotiating trade deals. he says we are losing so badly. we've heard him say that multiple times. we haven't heard him say that he thinks we're going to go into a recession. >> if he's the lone ranger,

who's tonight -- who's tonto? who would the vp be? trump says, i'm the one who knows how it works. i'm the one to fix it. who would -- >> he's saying i'm going to restructure things. $19 million -- analysts say that would be impossible. you literally have to shave off $2 billion out of the budget to get this done. he says i'm going to do it in eat years and restructure all of -- in eight years and restructure all of the deals on the table. we're a mess. $500 billion trade deficit to china. we'll restructure everything and get rid of debt. >> he's also concerned about others -- others critical of trump say that there could be a trade war, and that could spell real trouble. the other thing, how will this impact the financial markets on monday? we have that coming up in a bit. >> and how is this going to play out in the convention? the idea of a brokered convention, the behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing?
4:07 am
donald trump was in eau claire, wisconsin, talking about this whole process. he's not ruling out that he might pull out a third-party run even though he said it earlier. listen -- >> now, the republican party, they view me as a guy -- they don't want me because i don't want their money. i don't want the lobbyists' money. all these people, they're going to be saying we can't get to trump because it's a crooked system. we can't get to trump. so i got all these people against me. that's why it's important that i win -- i don't want nog looking at the second ballot. probably with the way the thing is, it's crooked as hell. >> donald trump says it's crooked. the question is, is it? is the convention set up as a crooked system? there's something in "the new york times" that the rnc chairman got together with reporters off the record for drinks. he was telling them, look, even if trump gets the nomination, we're not going to turn over the party apparatus to him even though that's what they do every time somebody gets the nomination. and if that is the case, if that's the way it plays out and
4:08 am
say that trump does go for a third-party run, doesn't that play to his hand where he says the gop insiders are sitting in a smoke-filled room or drink-filled room in washington, d.c., deciding everybody's fate and not others. >> we were interviewing rasmussen yesterday. he said if trump is such a good dealmaker, he would have known the rules and been playing by the rules and working his chess pieces across the board better knowing the way the delegates work and make sure he could get to that magic 1,237 number. that was his opinion. >> any way you shake it, this is super exciting now. that's why we have big coverage here on fox newschannel. you don't want to miss this. tonight here "on the record with greta van test earn -- greta van susteren," donald trump sits down with her. >> and in the capital, we the people were outside 1600

hello and good morning, everyone. all eyes are on wisconsin ahead of tuesday's big primary. our next guest says ted cruz is being used by the establishment to stop donald trump only to be dumped at the convention in july. >> roger stone is a former trump adviser and author of "the clintons' war on women." he joins us to weigh in. roger, sounds like there might be funny business going on behind the scenes with the party elites, so-called elites in washington, d.c. you think that they're propping up cruz just to tear him down senator. >> yeah. i think that because of his personality, not so much of his policies, i don't think the bush/romney/rubio/rnc establishment is too crazy about ted cruz. they're hoping to stop him in the ballot in the hopes of
4:18 am
dumping him on a subsequent ballot and nominate john kasich. >> or paul ryan. >> although i think the convention has a hard time nominating someone who has won no delegate votes. to john kasich's credit, at least he has won some delegate votes. >> you're calling for protests if that were to happen. >> well, two things can happen. trump can make the magic number of 1,237. he's got strong states coming up for him. new york, new jersey, pennsylvania, delaware, and perhaps the big enchilada, california. so he could hit 1,237, but you could have the mischief in rules and credentials to try to steal it from him in which case the streets would be the place to be in cleveland. or he could fall short on the first ballot and have to struggle in a second ballot. if it's not trump on the first, i think it will be kasich on the fourth. >> let's talk about wisconsin, all eyes there on tuesday. the polls, fbn and others, it
4:19 am
looks like trouble for donald trump. do you buy the polls and should donald be worry period wisconsin? >> put it this way, i think ted cruz must win wisconsin. he's got to get 82% of all votes going forward to get nominated. trump has to come out of wisconsin with some delegates because now you're moving to his stronger states, new jersey, new york, and so on. so if you're doing a running vote count, trump can afford to lose wisconsin as long as he gets some delegates. then he's got to pick up the pace going forward. also, the small states -- north dakota, arizona where they're still going to be delegate selection, colorado, those have got to be watched carefully to make sure trump get his fair share. >> and you had strong ties to the campaign being a former adviser. you think that the strategy will be shifting a bit before the communications exercise, wall-to-wall media coverage, not having to buy ads, it comes down to organization? >> i have no formal nor informal role in the trump campaign. i'm an fto, friend of trump, and
4:20 am
strong supporter. their strategy has been a brilliant one. it's really donald's strategy. it's been a communications-based strategy, a television-based strategy. he bows into these states -- he goes into the states, gets enormous crowds for rallies, gets wall-to-wall media coverage. he does every interview he can. he does the debates, and he's won. it's all communications based now. it's worked fabulously. now, you're moving into a phase of the campaign where the premium is on organization, knowledge of the rules, personal relationships, and the ability to horse trade. i think his campaign is wisely tooling up to do the last section of the process. >> roger stone. we pressure you joining us this morning. >> thanks. >> nice to be here. you've heard about the trump chalk drawings at campuses across the country. now students who support the donald say their grades and lives are being threatened. that story next. i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn

nomination. >> we'll have to see how i have treated. it's very simple. >> there he is, donald trump, the frontrunner doubling down in a cnn town hall meeting that prompted a meeting with reince priebus. we'll see more of that interview with trump a little bit later today. did you ask him about what happened in the unity meeting? what did he tell you? >> no, i didn't ask him specifically about that because he hadgun on the record already about that, and said it had been a very nice meeting. we're going to be talking today live and we'll get a reaction to that new comment from the chairman of the rnc, reince priebus. it will be interesting to hear what he says. donald trump we went through what i think -- and i guess he thinks or were the worst two week of his campaign. we talk about the confusion of his remarks about abortion. we talk about his tweeting pictures unflattering pictures of heidi cruz out.
5:18 am
we talk about his support of his campaign manager each after he's been charge with battery against that reporter, michelle fields. we talk about the whole deal and his very controversial comments about nato and japan and south korea getting nuclear weapons. we go through the whole thing. you'll hear what he has to say and there is one area where a rare donald trump admission of regret. says he wish he hadn't done something and you don't hear that very often from him. i want to go back to the third party potential for him to run as an independent. how big a deal is that? what does that say right now about the convention process which as you know donald trump last night in eau claire, wisconsin, described as crooked. crook as hell was his quote. >> it depends on what he does. trump is a negotiator. he's good at it. the art of the deal and he may be wanting leverage and even holding out the possibility that he wouldn't endorse the nominee
5:19 am
if it's not him and would run as a therd party candidate. he may think that gets him better leverage to get better treatment leading up to the convention in cleveland. if he decides to run as a third party candidate, it would ensure that the democrat, whoever it is, hillary clinton or somebody else would be the president. it would show the split of the republican party right down the middle and mean that millions of republicans would be voting for trump instead of the nominee. >> all right. chris wallace, washington, thanks, chris. 40 minutes or so until "fox news sunday." chris, thanks as always. and coming up, outrage growing at one airline this morning. what some flight attendants are being forced to wear on flights simply passing through iran. for his last day on the job, one officer gets a send-off he never saw coming.

5:53 am
>> a couple of things are happening. we know what's going on with unemployment. we're seeing whole communities not have jobs and, therefore, stores, big box stores like walmart are leaving these areas and we're going to have a whole generation ending up shopping at these smaller stores just to get their necessities or at gas marts. there's that. there's also packaging, these small stores have vendor relations where they buy packaging of products that are actually smaller, so you are using more products, you are going back to the store more. also, they can't take advantage of that strategy where we could go to a store, buy bulk, buy more stuff, up front for more money, but actually ends up saving us in the long run. >> buying in bulk does save us money on a key item. >> it does. the problem with costko i was to buy a tv. >> or jewelry or something. >> however, some of these big
5:54 am
items, you put them in your storage, whatever, down in the basement, you can last for months and months. >> i've never seen a bigger thing of toilet paper in my entire life. this roll of toilet paper, 36 rolls. if you buy it individually, it's $1.27. if you multiply $1.27 by $36, you are spending almost $45 dollars. >> big savings. >> big saves if you boo i in bulk. paper towels. this is a 12 count. this is $16.77 on walmart.com. if you buy it individually, $1.29, it costs you $21. >> water? >> yes. we all buy individual water. this guy right here costs about $1.29. this is a pack right here for
5:55 am
24. this ended up costing $5.49. so if you are buying 24 of these, it's going to cost you $30.96. >> you could also drink out of your fawcett at home. >> coca-cola. >> a 12-can case right here, $3.67. if you buy it individually, from the vending machine right outside, $you are spending $7.20. if you are buying coca-cola every week, you almost spend $500 more on that coca-cola. we'll get to the toothpaste you'll need after drinking all that coca-cola. let's go to the tide. detergent. >> we are talking about packaging. we're looking at this tide here, 150 ounces. i'm going to get a little math wonky on you. for $21, it cost you 14 cents an ounce. look at this. i buy the smaller one because
5:56 am
it's more convenient. $8.99 per ounce. it's 29 cents per ounce. you go through it more. even though you are saving more with smaller packaging, you are using more. you are losing -- using less with this packaging here. >> let's do the toothpaste. >> this is interesting. the individual tooth pastes here cost $3.79. together it cost $4.47. you are actually saving if you buy the bulk two pack. the way you can save, you go to walmart.com, retail me not and download coupons. coming up here, the media has called it the worst week ever for donald trump so is it too early to count him out? we'll find out. former house speaker newt gingrich joins us at the top of the hour to react. hillary clinton tells new

airport this morning since last month's deadly terror attack. officials say it will take months to be back at full working capacity. 32 people died. 270 people were hurt at the blast at the airport and metro station. one person is dead, five others injured when a plane crash lands on a california highway and plows into the back of a car parked on the side of the roadway. the passenger in the backseat was killed on impact. the driver and two others are said to be recovering. the pilot being dragged from the cockpit. it is unclear what caused the plane to crash. witnesses say it was scary. >> it was pretty nerve-racking seeing the plane right on top of me. and hit that car. i didn't know if there was anybody in the car. there was no movement around or nothing. >> giants catcher matt nokes

6:04 am
i want to take a minute to relish you wearing the tie. this is your big moment. >> thank you very much, mr. speaker. >> i think that's pretty cool. >> thank you. do we. very excited. >> moment over. >> moment over. there's another big contest this week and donald trump who has been having some problems in the polls with female voters now telling maw rene dowd that he take back that unflattering tweet of a photo with heidi cruz. yeah, it was a mistake. how significant is a change from position from trump ahead of wisconsin? >> i don't know what does from wisconsin, but it's healthy for him to admit it was a dumb thing to do it. it's very unlike trump who doesn't like to back up and apologize. it's finally getting through to them that some of the stuff he's done didn't work and he needs to be more like a normal person
6:05 am
when he blows something, admit you blew it and in that case, he sure as heck did. my guess is that crews will win wisconsin but probably not win it decisively. that he will gain a lot of delegates but trump will gain some delegates and we'll go on to new york where i think trump will win decisively. he's ahead by more than 2-to-1. it's important to remember. people gathering around saying trump is in trouble. these are the same people last june who said he was a joke. the very large part of the analytical world and washington establishment is terrified that trump will get the nomination. every chance they get to make themselves feel better they say things that may in fact not have anything to do with reality. >> all five of the candidates are out campaigning in wisconsin ahead of the primary.

donald trump no exception to that and he's saying that because he's getting the most votes, he thinks he's got to walk in with the most votes, he may not reach that 1237 magic number. he said this whole delegate process is crooked as hell. >> the republican party view me, they don't want me because i don't want money. i don't want their money. i don't want the lobbyist money. all these people are saying we can't get to trump, it's a crook system. we can't get to trump. i got all these people against me. that's why it's important that i win -- i don't want to go in there looking at the second ballot because the way this thing is, it's crooked as hell. >> could you have a -- do you have a problem with the process? >> i think if you are donald trump, this has got to be a big shock. bernie sanders' yesterday won clark county at a convention even though hillary clinton had won clark county which is las
6:07 am
vegas in the primary. he's probably going to getting up more delegates out of the convention process than hillary even though they got more votes back when they first voted. somebody like trump, you've never been through it before, you find out you go through box a you win the primary, by the way, the primary guarantees you a vote on the first ballot. it doesn't guarantee you the delegates. now you have to build an organization to bring in the delegates. when he brought in paul maniford, i think it's a sign. he really understands how to do conventions, and i think that was a sign that trump is going to take seriously that he can't just rely on media and on winning primaries. he actually has to go out and step by step win the delegate fight on the ground which is a big challenge. >> roger stone was on the show earlier. former trump adviser, of course.
6:08 am
he has a theory about ted cruz and the establishment falling in love with ted cruz. >> because of his personality, not so much of his policies, i don't think the bush-romney-rubio rnc establishment is too crazy about ted cruz. they are using him to try to stop donald trump in the first ballot in the hopes they can dump him on a subsequent ballot and nominate john kasich. if it's not trump on the first, i think it will be kasich on the fourth. >> do you buy that? >> look, think there's an email out this morning from an insider who said what if trump fails in the first ballot and cruz fails in the second and third ballot, it could be kasich or this particular person's favorite is paul ryan. anything is possible. it is clear that cruz is walking a real tight rope because he was originally the insurgent
6:09 am
candidate, remember? if donald trump weren't around, cruz would be the guy who is getting all the votes of the people who are anti-washington. now he's campaigning with scott walker. he's beginning to resemble marco rubio who kept getting governors to endorse him while he lost their states. cruz has got to play a balancing act here with jeb bush and others endorsing him. at what point does he begin to be the establishment candidate in this particular year is bad for you. >> on the other side we're seeing the clinton team really needling bernie sanders saying, hey, hillary wants to debate, why won't you come and debate us here in new york. they are thinking ahead in wisconsin. they must think she's doing well there. they want to duke it out in new york state, the site of the next contest. for hillary clinton to be calling for my debates, if she was such a strong frontrunner on
6:10 am
thought she was going to do really well racking up delegates for the next couple of months, would she be wanting to expose herself to attack on a stage from her primary rival right now, bernie sanders? >> well, no, it tells you that she knows she's losing ground. she's going to lose wisconsin, i think, by a big margin. she's behind by five or six points in the polls, but the polls have consistently adjourned estimated of the intensity of sanders turn out. in places like madison it's going to be enormous. he's going to beat her by huge margins in a state with a large university system. she's losing ground in nevada as i said a minute ago. she's eroding at the margins in ways that are very dangerous if you are the frontrunner and it's reasonable an act of desperation to say why don't you come debate me and my hunch is bernie
6:11 am
sanders is going to debate her and that's going to take away that issue. she should win new york. if she loses new york, it's catastrophic. >> what kind of psychological blow would that be? aside from the delegates and momentum and all that, just psychologically for the campaign and heading into the general election if she's the nominee? >> remember what happened to rubio when he lost florida, he did the right thing that night, he dropped out. it's hopeless. john kasich said if he lost ohio, he would drop out. she's not going to drop out. if she loses new york, she won't be the nominee. she has to win new york. this is an absolute moment of survival for her. >> unbelievable. mr. speaker, always great to see you here on the show. >> thank you. have a great day. coming up here more, we'll have more on the deadly train accident south of philadelphia. brussels airport back open. pictures moment ago first time since the terror attacks and president obama says we should

6:24 am
service is suspended between new york city and philadelphia at this time. >> so this backhoe parked on the tracks, construction workers saying that in that area there, they tend to lay fiberoptic lines right near the railroad tracks. it was parked there when it was struck. that's all that remains. it's unclear at this point whether there was anyone operating the backhoe and these two people who were killed, were they on the train or were they on the backhoe. >> we're still waiting to find that out and we're monitoring social media and hearing from people who say they were passengers on the train. one twitter user was in the second car window across from me blew up. there was a small fire. most of the damage was in the first car. another user at amtrak, small crash. saw fire. heard bren windows. heard from crew. there was one crew fatality. this is according to one twitter

some say "free the whales." for them, nothing else is acceptable. but nothing could be worse for the whales. most of the orcas at seaworld were born here. sending them into the wild wouldn't be noble. it could be fatal. when they freed keiko, the killer whale of movie fame, the effort was a failure and he perished. but we also understand that times have changed. today, people are concerned about the world's largest animals like never before. so we too must change.

6:34 am
new york city, a very busy corridor, shut down right now and we have someone on the phone who was on the train. stephanie burroughs, can you tell us what happened? >> hi. we felt a big jerk. well, some people rose up out of their seats just a bit. not a lot. some folks reported they saw a fire ball out of the window. i didn't. i saw sunlight and the guy next to me leaning across me, but definitely a hard hit underneath the train. i talked to the conductor and a little bit later because there was no p.a. system, so it took a minute. they had us move from the front car to the back car. the conductor did inform us that there was a fatality. that there were people working on the track, and although the train -- they did blow the horn and let them know they were domg coming, the people couldn't move fast enough. i didn't know there was two.
6:35 am
i did hear there was definitely one fatality and the engineer took some hits. engine, i don't know if you saw the pictures, the engine lifted off little off the tracks and most of the people -- there was some folk that were shaken up a little bit. there was some injuries in the front car, but someone told me the worst is a broken arm. i don't know. we're in a church right now and i'm seeing a lot of people in here and there's pretty good spirits. i walked around making sure people were all right. >> you were evacuated from the train. taken across a marsh area into a church. >> yeah. it was a little bit of a marsh. literally, they put boards down for us to cross over. it was slippery. we climbed up over and out. got a good bit of that exercise, dragging our luggage along with us and we're in the church. what's a better place to be on a sunday morning after something like this. >> i want to ask you about the
6:36 am
injuries. in the front, you spoke to the conductor and there was some backhoe that was apparently parked on the tracks. >> yes. >> we know that at least two people are dead. do you know if those who were killed were on the train or were they a part of that construction crew that was working on the tracks? >> i was told by the -- by one of the conductors that it was one person at that time killed on the tracks. they were working on the tracks. they were calling for our attention right now, in fact as we speak. >> stephanie, i understand that you are traveling between -- are you getting an announcement actually? let us know what they are saying. >> can you hold up the phone to the announcement? >> okay. [ poor audio ] >> they are saying something about getting to your final destination. what's the word, stephanie? [ poor audio ] >> it's hard to hear on a cell phone. >> stephanie was traveling
6:37 am
between maryland and new jersey. if you come back in, staech -- stephanie, let us know. >> i didn't know if you could hear it. >> what did they say? >> they are basically letting everybody know what they are going to do to get people to their destination. they have buses coming in right now, and they will take us to some other stations and from there, we'll get to our final destination. >> we should mention to our viewers who are waking up and tuning in the northeast corridor right now, amtrak service is completely shut down, to bussing passengers from that train, passenger train number 89 to their final destination. you are trying to get to savannah, georgia. >> no, no, no. not me. >> it was heading to savannah. >> it was heading to savannah. >> i understand you were traveling between maryland and new jersey. is it a trek that you make often and did the train feel like it was out of control? did it feel like it was going fast? did it feel like everything was normal? >> no, i don't make this trek often. i don't make this trek very often.
6:38 am
this is a trip that i'm making to maryland for business, and it was just a pleasant trip. >> stephanie, do you see a lot of police and paramedics that are there? is the fire department there and what are they doing? >> he didn't, ems, quickly. there are lots of them. fire department trucks. but a lot of people ems. they were on the train and all around the train, assisting us, helping us. bringing water, and making sure sure that everybody checking anybody that had anything hurting whatsoever. >> stephanie, we're hearing there were approximately 30 injuries. that's the latest update into our newsroom right now. >> yes. of course. they haven't given us any information on injuries or anything like that. the information i received was by talking directly to the conductor on the train before we disembarked. >> we're looking at new photos
6:39 am
from our affiliate in philadelphia, wtxf. you can see the windows blown out. some passengers described a fire ball and being thrown as it struck this backhoe parked on the tracks. stephanie burroughs was on the train. you were telling us that the conductor informed you that one of the construction crew, we now know two might have been killed and not anybody on the train was killed. >> exactly. in fact, when i spoke to ems a little while later, they said that the worse of the injuries or not the train up in the front car was a broken arm. i asked how the engineer was doing? he said he's doing fine. so i don't know if they were able to give me all the information but i did ask and that's what was given to me. >> stephanie burroughs, we're happy that you are doing all right this morning and give our best to everybody around you as you try to make to your final
6:40 am
destinations on the buses that will be shuttling these passengers. we appreciate your time today. stay with us and let us know if anything changes, okay? >> will do. thank you. >> this is a busy corridor south of philadelphia. this train heading to savannah, georgia. carrying 340 passengers. at least 30 people, approximately right now, federal investigators arriving there will get a better sense of how many people are injured. 30 injuries and two fatalities. >> when you start to think about what kind of injuries that folks may have, our last eyewitness said there were many ems and they were on the train quickly. nobody is ever bracing for impact on these trains. there are no seatbelts which is important to keep in mind. it's not -- not that there are on many trains, but there are no seatbelts, so if there is any kind of a big event at the front, any kind of a jolt, you are at the very least likely to jolt forward or possibly into the aisle and also the luggage is overhead and unsecured, so
6:41 am
you have to worry about big heavy bags falling down and we have another eyewitness, ari neman he was on the second train as well. can you tell us what you saw? >> well, first, we've been evacuated to a local church, and it looks like most folks here are okay. i was in the second car. to be honest, i was napping when the commotion started. the train started to shudder and we smelled smoke, and the window across the aisle from me started to break apart. it broke apart and sort of moved out of the train which looked like it was functioning as it was supposed to. there were no shards breaking into the train in the second car. and, you know, after a bumpy period, and i think there was a
6:42 am
small fire, the train came to a stop, and the amtrak personnel were very quick to make sure that folks did not leave the train, which was absolutely right and they worked quickly to evacuate us to the rear cars where it was safer. >> we're learning, trying to find out this morning from authorities there and it seems this may be the case at this hour as eyewitness reports and the conductor and investigators tell us that there were two people working on the track with a backhoe that was parked on the tracks at the time. it appears at this stage that those two individuals were the fatalities. those were the two individuals that were killed. they were not on the train. are you hearing the same thing from the people that have been evacuated to the church where you are? >> so far the only fatality we've heard was the backhoe driver, and what we've been told is that this was an accident. it looks like that is the case.
6:43 am
you know, i had actually only heard about one fatality, you probably have better information there than i do, but it does not look like there were fatalities among the passengers. i'll say, we don't have definitive information on that, but the emergency personnel here have been great, and, you know, they are seeing to everybody's needs. >> again to our friends who are just waking up with us, amtrak crash that had about 350 passengers on board, 341 passengers and 7 crew members on board has struck a backhoe that was on the tracks. we're told that two people are dead and approximately 30 people are injured, and our guest on the phone ari was on the train at the time napping and is now in a church. people around you, what's the mood like? what's the tone? is everyone trying to be there for one another? are they scared? what are they thinking? >> i think there's a tremendous
6:44 am
sense of solidarity. honestly that was the case, you know, from the moment it happened. you know, there was somebody -- there were some folks on the second car who had the presence of mind, as we were still moving, you know, tell everybody to keep low to the ground and, you know, to not panic. everybody helped each other with the evacuation. folks remained pretty calm given the circumstances, and you know, i would say that's largely kept to the case here. everybody is helping each other. if you've got a cell phone, you are helping folks contact family. it looks like most people here are fine, and, you know, i think there's a real sense of everybody is pitching in to help out. >> ear, there in the second car, we're seeing a picture of what looks like maybe the first car behind the engine with some
6:45 am
windows blown out but when you were evacuating after you had been awakened by this accident, what was the car looking like? did you see smoke? was there luggage strewn about? did you see any of the bags that are loosely stowed overhead hit anyone? can you tell us a little bit about the scene as you evacuated and how frantic was the evacation? >> there was no luggage hitting anyone. in fact the amtrak personnel reminded everybody not to take their luggage during the evacuation. you know, i think the evacuation was not panicked, at least not in the second car. you know, it was -- in fact the amtrak personnel who communicated again quite rightfully so the sense of urgency to have us leave the second car. >> were people running though or were they just calmly walking in a single file line? because some of the pictures
6:46 am
we're seeing are very dramatic. it's hard to imagine what we would do in that situation. us just there, though. were people really running for their lives? >> no, no. i think folks were evacuating calm and orderly fashion. i would say by and large folks were very responsible in the evacuation. you know, some of the folks in the back cars, once we got interest -- there, made sure that people had places to sit down. the luggage did not, you know, fall everywhere, at least not in the second car. i can't speak to the first car. i think all in all, amtrak personnel and emergency services handled the difficult situation in the best possible fashion. >> and ari, is it your understanding that after impact the train continued to move and run over possibly these victims or the backhoe or did the train
6:47 am
stop right away? >> i don't know what happened with the backhoe and the folks that were hit. there was a period where the train sort of ground to a halt over, you know, a period of, you know, if i had to guess, i would say maybe between 10 and 30 seconds. frankly, i would say that was probably a good thing because it limited the degree to which we would, you know, kind of get whiplash or something like that. you know, so it was a little bit of a bumpy stop and it happened, you know, over a period of time, but you know, i'm not an expert, but my impression was that was probably a safer way to stop, at least for the passengers than if we had had the capacity to stop on the dime, which i'm pretty sure -- a stop on a dime, which i'm pretty sure trains can't do anyway. >> yeah. all right. we want to thank our eyewitness
6:48 am
who was there, who has been evacuated to the -- to a local church. ari, thank you so much for joining us. we're glad you are safe and sound and bringing us some of the details from inside that second car. you can see on the right side of your screen, that is a picture of the train derailment. it appears that the train is upright and at least the engine appears to be off the tracks in the front. the windows is blown out as it hit the backhoe on the tracks. this northeast corridor shut down. one of the busiest corridors in all of the united states. this is going to snarl traffic for, you know, at least most of today if not into the early part of the week. >> what this is reminding me is that awful crash that happened last may. eight people were killed and a couple hundred were injured in that and it was sort of the same type of deal. an amtrak train was heading from washington, d.c. to new york city and it ended up crashing in a neighborhood around philadelphia. >> this is a tricky area.
6:49 am
look, the northeast corridor has all kinds of problems. you have the trains. here's our video we're getting in to an eyewitness who was there, pete bannen was on the scene. cell phone videos are arriving. stephanie was telling us that tons of ambulances pug up -- pulling up right now as they are checking that the 30 people injured are doing okay. she described a broken arm of someone who was in front of her. it doesn't appear the other injuries are life-threatening. >> 2200 trains a day for the northeast corridor for amtrak. this incident, now that we know a little bit more about it, raises new questions about how safe those 2,200 trains a day, 260 million annual passengers are because last year in may, the derailment that anna just brought up, that was because a
6:50 am
conductor was going too fast around a curve. this is for something completely different. this is a new issue and these tracks, you know, there are often concerns about train safety in the context of terror that does not look like that's what this is. but why is it that close to the tracks when there's a train full of people vulnerable. >> get on any of these train stations, lancaster, p.a. you can walk right in as i've done many times. you mentioned that derailment last year. that came on the heels of another derailments a year prior to that. we have a series of crashes along the northeast corridor which is frightening. for those of you just tuning in with a few minutes here left in "fox & friends" this morning, a train derailment south of philadelphia, near chester, pennsylvania. this is new video of ambulances arriving on the scene. and it appears that the train
6:51 am
struck a backhoe that was parked on the tracks. two construction workers appear to have been killed. none of the passengers on the train from our eyewitnesss and those we've been talking to on the ground have been killed. two construction workers on the track, those killed who were operating the backhoe and couldn't move it in time as that train struck it. >> amtrak train number 9 operating from new york and heading to savannah, georgia. then hitting that backhoe was apparently on the tracks. we've seen the remnants of it, some pictures of it and pictures you're looking at here, windows were blown out and some passengers on board have told us that they saw a fireball, there was some sort of small fire that they saw. there were some injuries. one of our eyewitnesss we spoke to mentioned there was a broken arm and people were shaken up. the passengers were evacuated out of the back end of the train that they said that was a safer route for them to go. they were then escorted over
6:52 am
through a marshy type area into the gymnasium of a church and that's where they are now. some buses are headed to them to shuttle them to their final destination. you can only imagine what they are going through. this is happening on sunday. this is a very, very busy area during the week for all the commuters, the northeast corridor right now the service has been shut down between new york and philadelphia. at the moment it's been suspended. what will that look like tomorrow. >> this is another new photo we're seeing shared by social media user. if we can go back to the video of the ambulances. the moving pictures. it gives you a sense where this happened. this just didn't happen in the middle of nowhere. this looks like it's in the crowded part of southeast pennsylvania where it looks like there are some maybe low rise apartment buildings and some shops. probably pretty busy area on a sunday morning anyway.
6:53 am
that obviously would help get first responders to the accident site faster, which is, obviously, time is of the essence with things like this. this just didn't happen from the looks of it in the middle of an open field, middle of nowhere in pennsylvania. this is a populated area. that raises some concerns. some of these trains come close pop allocati to population centers. >> we're getting an update from delaware county officials that confirm it was two construction workers that were killed. we have been getting this from eyewitnesss who thought there was one person killed. we now officially can say there are two people that were killed who were on that construction crew working on that backhoe that couldn't move it in time according to eye witnesses. they sounded the horns.
6:54 am
there's a picture of the window. it looks like it's up like an accordion. two construction workers in that backhoe struck and killed who couldn't move in time as the engine struck them. >> we're learning about those fatalities. both of them are construction workers who were operating that backhoe. we hate to be reporting that this morning. 30 injuries that we've been report, we learn from the same delaware county officials they confirmed four others were taken to area hospitals and that one person was seriously injured. >> you look at the speed that would be required to cause a gash in the side of a steel train car like the picture we just saw, the closer up image of some of the damage. that doesn't just happen when you're going slow and something nicks into you. that's a serious impact and thank goodness at least at this
6:55 am
point we have not heard about anybody being killed inside the train. but you want to talk about a close call, that would be for whoever was sitting in that seat and you would think that that train car or part of the car would be pretty crowded because there were about 350 people. >> you mentioned them blowing the horn. that's what the eyewitnesses we spoke to said they did hear the horn. you wonder why didn't the two operators of the backhoe, why didn't they hear? were they wearing ear protection and the machinery was loud around them? how did they miss that? >> having the construction equipment, fiber lines are laid next to these tracks. there you can see the electrical lines above the train. they have to switch to a diesel engine from east to west. philadelphia the hub. what happens you take these trains from pittsburgh, on a
6:56 am
diesel engine, you park in philadelphia. they have to switch out that diesel engine and put on the electric engine. then it's a peaceful quiet ride through the northeast corridor which is very, very busy. we're not just talking amtrak trains. they run and own most of these tracks. there's all kinds of local commuter trains being affected by this. all shut down this morning because they rely on these tracks. it's a sunday. if you can imagine this on a monday with all of the snarling traffic, people who rely to get from washington, d.c., new york, a train that joe biden takes on a regular basis. >> this is a train that peter doocy was going to take back to washington, d.c. >> something else, secondary concern until we know about the condition of the victims, but there could have been if there's a backhoe and a train colliding on train tracks and pretty significant damage to the actual infrastructure to those tracks. so you want kind of plot out how
6:57 am
long it might take to fix. they got to get train out of there. they got to get all the passengers out there was. then they have to bring in new equipment, new rails. that can take up a lot of time. >> amtrak has a $151 billion plan to revitalize this area. we've seen a number of accidents along this corridor where speeds on the acela train can get up to 125 miles per hour. they have to slow down for most of the journey because tracks can't handle those high speeds and when you go around these curves -- >> 150 mile-per-hour at top speeds. >> there's a huge plan to be completed by 2040 along the northeast corridor to make these travel times cut them in half, make it safer but that's many, many years away. >> a quarter of a million people ride these trains through that area between new york city, through philadelphia and on to d.c. a day. so you think about what's that
6:58 am
is going to be like on monday. hopefully they can get things cleaned up. our big focus is loss of life, those two backhoe operators that were killed while working on tracks and the injuries. tomorrow will be a headache potentially. >> and amtrak is clarifying on social media, you can get on the northeast corridor, can you travel between new york and boston. it is points south that become problematic with either severe, severe delays or possibly you would think some train cancellations. >> d.c. into philly. 79 miles per hour, this is an area of track that can go very fast south of philadelphia before you have to slow down, come through that curve there. and parallels route 95 all the way up to the east. 79 miles per hour, having to slam on the brakes, blow an air horn to get the attention of these two workers who were using that backhoe in the way of this train who were struck and killed. obviously we're trying to move
6:59 am
it so perhaps it didn't derail the train but they were killed in the process. we're following -- >> clayton, we're going to reset one more time for our viewers just waking up. we're following a deadly train crash south philadelphia. two construction workers operating a backhoe on the tracks confirmed to be the two dead. 30 people reportedly hurt. 347 passengers on board. all the service right now from new york city to philadelphia has been shut down which could have a massive effect on tomorrow morning's commute. the train was traveling from new york city to savannah, georgia when it hit that backhoe. a witness we just spoke to said the conductor blew thorn to get the workers off the track but it was too late. witnesses say the train windows blew out and there was a fire. investigators and the medical examiner are all on the scene. >> old tracks. this opened early in the 1800s.
7:00 am
finished in the early 1900s. old infrastructure. we'll have much more. keep it right here. developing story out of philadelphia as a deadly train crash kills two individuals. we'll see you next weekend. >> have a good day, everybody. good morning, battle for wisconsin in the final stages. badger state a pivotal stop on the road to the gop nomination. ted cruz and donald trump going at each other tooth and nail hoping that a win on tuesday can act as a spring board for their campaigns. and help them nail down the top spot on their party's ticket. welcome. i'm maria bartiromo, welcome to "sunday morning futures." as the fight plays out donald trump and ted cruz telling voters that victory is at hand. >> i think we're going win before we get to the convention. if we get to the convention the establishment politicians who
