interstellar travel. good evening and it's great to have you with us here on a tuesday night. and we begin with the race for the white house, and the fierce battle for new york. but donald trump is looking beyond his republican opponents. trump taking aim at hillary clinton, with a new line of attack. saying, quote, "everything about her is a lie." we met up with trump today, asking what's behind those words? and how does he explain the one-time smiles with mrs. clinton? the invite to his wedding? abc's jonathan karl with the one-on-one tonight. >> reporter: from donald trump, a sweeping new line of attack against hillary clinton. >> remember this. her whole life has been one big lie. it's been one big lie. a big, fat, beautiful lie. it's been a terrible, terrible lie. everything about her is a lie. >> reporter: we asked trump about that backstage before his
rally in rome, new york. you said her whole life has been one big, fat beautiful lie. what did you mean? >> well, if you look at whitewater, if you look at all of the different things she's gone through, you look at so much of what's going on and now you look at the e-mail situation, her life is a big lie, and people know it. >> reporter: did you think that back when you -- i mean, you posted photos with her, you had her at your wedding. >> i get along with everybody. when i was a businessman, i got along with everybody, jon. i was very proud of that fact. i could get along with anybody. >> reporter: mrs. clinton also seems to be gearing up for a clinton versus trump general election. her latest ad aiming at trump, not bernie sanders. >> with so much at stake, she's the one tough enough to stop trump. >> reporter: but trump still needs to get past ted cruz, and now, he's accusing the republican party of letting cruz try to steal the nomination. >> the republican national committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this kind of crap to happen. >> reporter: but the republican chairman says the delegate rules trump complains about were set a long time ago.
he said that these rules were set last year, there's nothing mysterious, nothing new. >> it's totally mysterious. in fact, the people that are running it don't even know about it. and then they put out all sorts of tweets and then they withdraw the tweets. no, it's a rigged system. >> reporter: but there are rules. were you unprepared, you and your team, for this? you're not a professional politician. >> no, i'm not. no, i'm not. >> reporter: were you just not ready for this process? >> no, i was ready for a democratic race, meaning, you know, democracy. and this is not democracy. this is not democracy at its finest. >> reporter: cruz today mocked trump's complaints, comparing him to a mobster. >> donald needs to stop threatening the voters. he needs to stop threatening the delegates. he is not a mobster. >> reporter: one person trump won't be facing at the convention in cleveland is house speaker paul ryan, who sparked speculation with this slick video last week that he could emerge as the republican nominee. today, he called a press conference to say no way. >> to be the president, you should actually run for it. i chose not to do this. therefore, i should not be
considered, period, end of story. >> reporter: now, trump is starting to look ahead to picking a running mate. i asked him about his recent comments that he could consider wisconsin governor scott walker or even senator marco rubio. >> i like a lot of people that were on that stage. we started with 18 and now we're down to myself and two leftovers, and we'll see what happens. >> and jon karl with us live in upstate new york tonight. donald trump not ruling out picking marco rubio or scott walker as vp picks, jon, as you heard, after brutally taking them on in the primary. what are they saying about that tonight? >> reporter: well, marco rubio has said he's not interested in being anybody's running mate. when scott walker was asked about the prospect of being trump's running mate, he called it almost breathtaking. but the one thing he didn't do, david, was rule it out. >> all right, jonathan karl with donald trump today. jon, thank you. now, to the dramatic pictures coming in at this hour of a dangerous and powerful storm. parents huddling with their children, as hail exploded through the windows. the ominous clouds rolling in over wiley, texas, unleashing
giant hail. coming down with such force, you could see it bouncing off the ground there. blowing out the windows of this house. shattering car windows. and it was terrifying for the families caught in it. abc's phillip mena is north of dallas tonight. >> oh, my gosh! >> reporter: terrifying storms blasting up to softball-sized hail. families running for cover outside dallas. >> get in there. find the cat. >> reporter: donna ruth cole getting her son to safety as giant hailstones shatter windows. >> i was a little bit worried, but i didn't have any clue it was going to be to that magnitude. >> so scared. >> it's okay, i'm with you. >> reporter: john cavallo covering his daughter in a towel, getting to an interior room. glass exploding nearby. >> that's the moment when you know, oh, my god, something's really going on here. >> reporter: tonight, that same living room, shredded. damaging winds extending to arkansas. and lightning sparking a fire at
a church in el dorado. and this is all that's left of the church, burned to the ground and reduced to rubble. the storms also bringing flooding overnight to mississippi. >> that might be a totaled car. >> reporter: but by far, texas was worst hit. sarah correa and her daughter trapped in their car out in the open. >> and then the back window just completely shattered through. it was the scariest thing i've ever been through. >> reporter: daughter addison's carseat covered with hail. thankfully, both are okay. david, here in north texas, they are still assessing the mess. two hailstorms last month already did a billion dollars in damage. and peak season is just getting under way. david? >> phillip mena in texas for us. phillip, thank you. and our weather team telling us tonight, more storms are firing up at this hour. fierce wind and heavy rain overnight and there could be a rough morning commute from houston to new orleans. we're tracking it through "gma" in the morning. a warming trend across much of the east for the rest of the week. now, to the breaking news at this hour, after a super bowl champ was killed.

and pressuring congress to release $1.9 billion in emergency money that the president requested in february. >> we're in a situation with a lot of unknowns. there really isn't any time to spare. >> reporter: and it's not just women. men can get sick, too. the virus attacks brain cells and can cause neurological damage. and they're seeing cases where a man, bitten by a mosquito, ends up passing the virus to a woman through sexual contact. health authorities here say they are already planning to put together response teams that will fly to locations in the u.s. as soon as they find any transmissions here. david? >> steve osunsami at the cdc today for us. steve, thank you. overseas tonight, and to brussels now. a new image this evening of that key suspect in the paris terror attacks. salah abdeslam, held in a high security prison, waiting to be sent back to france. guards reportedly checking up on him eight times an hour. abdeslam was arrested in brussles just days before the attacks there. and tonight, word two more suspects now under arrest, accused of renting a hideout for

say you simply never know where the next big breakthrough will come from. david? >> all right, studying goldfish and spilling coffee. mary bruce tonight. you'll stay on it. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this tuesday. the grandmother on her way to visit her grandchildren, stranded nine days in the desert. look at this. the rescue, after something that grandmother did, right there. the search team spotting her plea for help. news on her condition tonight, and, of course, a lesson for us all. also, the breaking headline this evening about bill cosby's wife. her team arguing the deposition questions for her were offensive. the judge now ruling on whether she'll have to continue to answer. and the abc news exclusive. my interview tonight with professor stephen hawking. his groundbreaking work celebrated in "the theory of everything" there. well, tonight, he's with us, along with the russian entrepreneur and their tiny spaceship. they show it, it fits right in my hand. will it launch interstellar travel? you've got to hear this. ellar travel? travel? you've got to hear this. ut my w. ...what we're building together...
...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots.

russian entrepreneur yuri milner and renowned professor stephen hawking and their plan to invest in a tiny spaceship that could launch interstellar travel. and right after, professor hawking exclusively with us. we gave hawking, who communicates with a computer, a heads up about what we'd be asking. it's an ambitious plan, to build tiny spaceships, nano-crafts, that could one day travel beyond the planets, to the nearest star system. catapulting us into the interstellar age. do you have the spacecraft with you? >> i do. >> reporter: can i look at it? >> sure. >> reporter: he shows me the size. a spacecraft one day powered by light beams. so, this is it? it doesn't look like a space shuttle or "voyager." >> the ultimate spacecraft is going to be about the size of this, maybe quite a bit lighter and having much more functionality. >> reporter: it's pretty light to begin with. and right beside him, one of the smartest minds in the world,
professor stephen hawking, whose groundbreaking work was celebrated in "the theory of everything." in your mind, knowing what you know already, what do you expect to find, things that would help us on earth, or is this just an intellectual pursuit? >> the rapid progress of technology for space exploration has improved people's lives in the past. so, it would not be surprising if it brought benefits. >> reporter: do you have any reason to believe that we'll find other intelligent life out there? and will it be at a place where we can communicate with it, should we communicate with it? >> it is unlikely that there happens to be intelligent life in our nearest star system. >> reporter: but he added, just being able to explore a neighboring star system and to send images back would make history. as hawking tries to inspire the next generation, we asked him about the generations he's already inspired. i want to ask you about "the simpsons." >> stephen hawking! >> the world's smartest man.
>> reporter: of course, the hollywood movie that so many of us have watched based on your life. how does it feel to be a pop culture icon? >> i won't feel like a true pop culture icon until i've been on the kardashians. >> reporter: be careful what you wish for. we see his smile. and we ask yuri about where we're sitting, atop 1 world trade. you said, we're the closest point in north america to the stars. >> yes. >> reporter: where we are sitting right here. >> yes. >> reporter: but you want to get a lot closer. >> if we are not going to achieve it in our lifetime, then, we need to pass the baton to the next generation. >> it could be 20 years before it happens, but they hope to inspire the next generation. they inspired us today. that is the broadcast tonight. i'm david muir. i hope to see you right back here tomorrow. until then, have a good evening.
