. another aboutut face. donald trump weighing in again with his new stance on a hot button issue. >> this moment it's set and we have to leaf it that way. >> his campaign quick to jump in saying the front runter will try to change t abortion laws if elected president. >> on the democratic side the race turns nas si. bernie sanders attacking hillary clinton for claiming his campaign is lying about her record. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. we were not lying. we were telling the truth. >> it's all setting the stage for a major battle in the badger state. we're there, live. this is spring? a bitter blast of cold about to hit millions from the midwest all the way to the northeast.
5:31 am
snow, below freezing temperatures and high winds making it feel like winter all over again. bull on the lus. a bull headed straight for the slaughter house gets a last minute reprieve after breaking free. running through the streets of new york city, well, this morning he can thank comedian jon stuart for a future that's looking a whole lot brighter. and the golden state warriors doing something they haven't done in 14 months. losing a game at home by just 3 points to the celtics ending an incredible 54 home game winning streak. today, saturday, april 2nd, 2016. and welcome to "today" on
5:32 am
this saturday morning. >> glad to have you with us. we just saw those folks on the plaza. they show up to new york city for the weekend having no idea they were going to get some snow perhaps. >> why do you look at me? it's very accusatory. >> i will remind you craig, if you're going to blame her for the bad weather, you have to thank her for the good weather. >> thank me more yesterday. and this allout push now for the wisconsin vote on tuesday. on the republican side it's shaping up to be a critical test of the stop trump forces. now he's on the defensive once again about his comments about abortion. full coverage and anal since of both the republican and democratic races. we begin with kerry sanders who's covering the race from wisconsin. good morning. >> good morning, erika. donald trump finds himself usually in a position of being on the offensive, but this morning he's in an unusual and
5:33 am
perhaps uncomfortable position of being on the defense after stumbles of talking about abortion that continually require clarifications. for the second time this week donald trump forced to back pedal in the abortion debate telling cbs news in an interview to air on sunday -- >> this moment, the laws are set and i think we have to leave it that way. >> reporter: trump's campaign quickly releasing a clarification stating mr. trump gave an accurate account of the law as it is today and made clear it must stay that way now until he is president. then he will change the law through his judicial appointments and allow the states to protect the unborn. there is nothing new or different here. trump has had a rare week of relentless bad pr. highlighted by abortion comments on msnbc's town hall with chris matthews. >> do you believe in punishment for abortion?
5:34 am
yes or no? >> the answer is there has to be some form of punishment. >> today trump will try to glo back on the offensive with three events across wisconsin. a wisconsin poll shows ted cruz with an almost 10-point lead over trump and this week cruz scored the endorsement of scott walker. he has a high approval of gop voters and spoke of a watershed moment on the trail. >> when we're able to help him win i think it sends a clear message that the momentum has shifted. >> reporter: the gop hopes that a loss in wisconsin could be their chance to derail trump's momentum going into the primary in new york. >> they should see that the republican establishment was pushing back at donald trump and this is where they desighcided o it and do it most effectively. >> reporter: last night
5:35 am
president obama took a veiled swipe at trump who has said he would not oppose japan and south korea getting nuclear weapons. >> the person who made the statements doesn't know much about foreign policy or nuclear policy or the korean peninsula or the world generally. >> reporter: how donald trump's statements on abortion could be interesting depending on how it plays with women. of course we know that other candidates and other political races have found that statements on the abortion issue since the row v. wade in 1973 has had a dramatic impact. >> indeed. kerry sanders for us this morning. to the democrats where bernie sanders is looking to keep his winning streak going against hillary clinton. this morning the vermont senator insisting that clinton owes his team an apology after she accused him of lying about her record. kristen walker is in milwaukee
5:36 am
for us. >> reporter: good morning to you. instead clinton is back here in wisconsin where she's added extra events to take on a surging bernie sanders who's showing no signs of backing down. >> thank you. thank you, green bai. >> reporter: bernie sanders hoping a here in wisconsin will make it four straight victories after trouncing clinton in three western caucuses last weekend. >> we're going to win here in wisconsin. >> reporter: and then he slammed clinton for accusing him of lying about her record in dh this exchange with a protester earlier this week. >> i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about this. i'm sick about it. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. >> reporter: the clinton campaign refusing to apologize. with just three days to go until election days, sanders holds
5:37 am
onto a four-point lead in a state clinton hoped to win. beating clinton here would give him greater momentum heading back to her home state, new york, where sanders is closing in on clinton's lead. >> what i love about new york, you can knock us down, but you can't keep us down. >> reporter: greeting students at syracuse the day before the school's basketball team plays in the final four, the democratic front-runner identifying with the underdog. >> i said earlier today that i am rooting for the home team. >> reporter: and taking it to sanders. >> my opponent talks about free college, but you got to read the fine print. any time anybody tells you something is free, ask for the details. >> reporter: but money is still pouring into the sanders campaign. $44 million in march alone. even as many are still making up their minds. why are you still undecided? >> why am i still undecided? because so far all i've heard is a lot of rhetoric between the candidates.
5:38 am
>> reporter: what does one of these candidates have to do to win your vote? >> talk about the issues. that's it. >> reporter: now, if senator sanders wins here in wisconsin, he's going to pick up some more delegates, but mostly he's going to pick up major momentum heading into new york. both candidates will face off at a party dinner here in milwaukee. >> kristin welker for us in milwaukee, thank you. john bais an nbc contributo and joan walsh for "the nation" magazine and nbc political analyst. nice to have you with us this morning. when we look at the week it was for donald trump, there have been a lot of bumps on the road, multiple comments and change when it's come -- changes with his campaign manager. it's not the first time, josh, we have seen donald trump change position and quickly on an issue. but is anything different this time? >> i don't think nationally anything is different this time. i think people who really deeply care about the abortion issue or
5:39 am
more broadly care about policy issues already were not without donald trump. donald trump is very much about mood affiliation. he's angry like i'm angry. i think he had a bad week in wisconsin. i think the fight he picked with scott walker, who's very popular there, is stupid. he even attacked walker for not raising taxes, which is a weird thing to do in a republican primary. there's also this dynamic in wisconsin where conservative talk radio has been hostile to donald trump. nationally talk radio has been friendly to him and an important force backing him. i think he's lick likely to do bad in wisconsin but i don't think we should assume he'll be nationally for this stuff like he's been punished over the other bizarre stuff. >> women voters, quinnipiac said it's at 70% negative. mitt romney was around 40%. assume he does become a nominee, how does a candidate with 70%
5:40 am
disapproval with women voters go on to win a general election? >> he doesn't. there's no way for him to do this. i think the abortion comments will hurt him a little bit because anyone who has been paying attention, who has a feeling about abortion, pro or con, looks at that and thinks, this man has never givens this any thought. he used to be pro-choice, now anti-abortion, but he hasn't thought through why and what's going to happen. it really annoyed the pro-life forces. they came out strongly against him. now, they're mainly with ted cruz, so it's not like they were a huge constituency. but it increases this notion, along with his nuclear comment, this guy doesn't think things through very well. >> when we look at the race in wisconsin, it's looking very good for ted cruz. but if ted cruz does pull out a win there, what does it actually mean? >> it depends. for one thing, this is probably ted cruz's second most favorable state that remains on the map. only south dakota is better for
5:41 am
him. we'll move into the northeast states that are much more favorable to donald trump and then it depends how much he wins by. wisconsin advocates delegates, some with congressional districts and that's been favorable to donald trump because he tends to do well in the parts of states that have very few republican voters. can you get the same for winning milwaukee as the democratic part of the state. even if he loses, he's likely to pick up delegates. if he loses by more than ten points, he might get shut out. is he going to lose by double digits, that's an alarming sign. if he loses by double digits, can you chalk that up to this wasn't a good state for him. >> hillary clinton expected to lose in wisconsin. what, if anything, does that mean for new york? >> i don't think it means anything for new york. senator sanders has had a hard time building momentum with other wins. >> a big thanks to both of. >> you thank you. well, folks, before you go outside this morning, you might want to bundle up. it is about to feel a lot more like winter than pring.
5:42 am
a big drop in temperatures is about to hit the middle of this country, and then it's supposed to give a wintry blast to the northeast. dylan is tracking all of that. say it ain't so, dylan dreyer. >> it is. it's spring and so we get those ups and downs. yesterday new york made it to 79 degrees. 69 in boston. 83 degrees yesterday in washington, d.c. even syracuse was up into the 60s. but we've got the polar vortex well up to the north. it's shifted a bit and pushed the jet stream down to the south. by the time we go into tomorrow morning, look at some of these windchills. marquette, 9 degrees. windchill in new york tomorrow, around 24. high temperatures rebound a little but we're still about 10 to 15 degrees below average for highs. with this area of low pressure, two of them move, through the great lakes and into the northeast, these are quick clipper systems that will produce a little bit of snow. mainly lake-effect snow across
5:43 am
michigan, northwestern new york, northwestern pennsylvania. another one that will move through sunday night into monday. that will produce a little light snow, especially off lake ontario and lake erie. we could even see snow falling in boston. we're not looking at a whole lot of accumulation except back near the great lakes. in new york we could see as much as 8 to 10 inches of snow because of the enhancement off the great lakes. the northeast and into parts of southern new england, we're only looking at a few inches of snow between those two clipper systems. boston could end up with about 2 to 4 inchsz of snow. in new york, we'll see the snowfall but we're not looking for that to accumulate. >> dylan dreyer, thank you. >> i like that. she ended on a positive note. it won't accumulate. shifting gears as we turn to a terrible incident out of new mexico. a police lieutenant accidentally open fires on one of his undercover officers during a botched drug raid. this video released as part of the settlement between the injured officer and the city of albuquerque. a word of caution, the video is
5:44 am
difficult to watch. >> hands up! hands up! >> reporter: it was supposed to be a small time bust over a $60 drug deal. >> put your hands where i can see them? >> reporter: then chaos. albuquerque police lieutenant open fire on what turned out to be his own undercover officer. >> holy [ bleep ]! that was jacob. >> reporter: it comes at the end of nearly a 15-month investigation. >> are you okay? >> no. >> reporter: they say he didn't attend the morning briefing and should have known where his officer was sitting? use of force experts also question why he approached the car opposite of other officers. >> you have an individual going in with limited information on an operation which is already in progress. that's probably a really bad thing. >> reporter: in the individual yoeshgs you hear the lieutenant sobbing. >> jacob, hang in there, man! >> reporter: on the other side of the car, a suspect gets out
5:45 am
begging not to get shot. the albuquerque police department has since promised more training and policy changes. the undercover officer will be given a $6.5 million settlement. he survived being struck eight times through most of his major organs and losing 80% of his blood. the city paying for his medical bills the rest are of his life. >> i remember several days after they had taken jacob off the ventilator ande was breathing on his own, i can remember v verbatim every consideration i had with him. >> reporter: another black mark on albuquerque police, already under scrutiny for their use of force after shooting of supports. now taking fire for the shooting of one of their own. for "today," nbc news. alabama's governor is still feeling the heat this morning, facing a second ethics complaint over potentially improper use of state funds when he bought
5:46 am
disposable cell phones as the calls for him to step down over an alleged affair grew louder. we get the latest from sara dolloff. >> reporter: alabama governor robert bentley isn't backing down. >> there is nothing illegal, there's nothing that's ever been done that would affect the people of alabama and affect my job. >> i have no intention of resigning. >> reporter: with the state ethics commission investigation already under way, now reports federal investigators are looking into possible misuse of state funds by governor bentley and the allegations surrounding him and top adviser rebecca mason. according to phone calls reportedly between the two still grabbing headlines. >> let me kiss that left ear, okay? >> reporter: the controversy spilling into the ink of political cartoon. state campaign finance records show the governor spent more than $1700 on cell phones and prepaid wireless at best buy last year. according to, the governor himself bought cheap
5:47 am
disposable cell phones on two dates in may. governor bentley says in a statement, all expenditures were filed according to state laws, rules and regulations related to the use of campaign funds. bentdly and mason have both denied their relationship was physical. on wednesday, she resigned her position as senior political adviser and the fallout is not over. with the legislature reconvening this coming week, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are pushing for the governor's resignation or even impeachment. >> the governor needs to resign immediately. >> he stands in front of the people of alabama and he lies. blatantly lies to their face. >> reporter: for now, no end in sight for the controversy surrounding alabama's top leader. nbc news. a sailor has died during the clipper round the world yacht race. sara young was washed overseas and washed away. her teammates were able to pull her back aboard the boat an hour later but they were unable to

this morning in today's health, as spring is getting under way and mosquitoes are increasing. there is little information on the zika virus. on friday, the centers for disease control and prevention issued important information. we have dr. natalie azar here with us to tell us what it means. let's start with the recommendations. how worried should we be going into mosquito season in the country? >> you know, craig, difficult question to answer because we haven't seen any locally acquired infections from a mosquito infected with virus. all of the locally acquired infections have been sexually transmitted. we have been showing people a map for weeks showing where the cdc thinks the greatest likelihood of zika is in the united states. that area includes southern states, florida, texas, but
6:12 am
we're also seeing the cdc expanding that scope a bit to include parts of the northeast. >> how do they come up with the map? how do they choose the states? >> based on climate. think about it. a mosquito, the reason we're concerned and pan americas effected is because the mosquito thrives in warm, moist area. areas high and dry, places in the midwest for example, don't need to be as concerned. >> if someone is diagnosed with the zika virus now, what is the cdc recommending? >> for women, if you are diagnosed with zika virus or symptoms consistent with zika, the recommendation is wait eight weeks before trying to conceive. if you are a man, who has been infected with zika virus, or had symptoms of zika, the recommendation is to wait six months. if you are a man and woman and have traveled to an area, but experienced no symptoms and have not been infected, the
6:13 am
recommendation for men and women is to wait eight weeks. craig, i think it is important to make mention of a report that came out in the england journal last week that highlighted one case report of a pregnant woman where zika virus was detected up to ten weeks after exposure. i mention this because our guidance on waiting eight weeks right now for women is based on previously understanding how long the virus remains in the blood. i don't want to get mired down in the details, but it is important to highlight that guidance from the cdc will evolve and changing and they will update as new information is coming in. the cdc has not made a change in the recommendation, but understanding that pregnant women may harbor the virus for longer than we originally thought than 11 days. may change the guidance moving forward. as of today, this is the recommendation.
6:14 am
