7:02 am
i love the '90s concert. >> we'll throw it back big-time. first to our top stories. talking about violent protests outside a donald trump rally in california where nearly 20 people were arrested. this as trump's opponent, ted cruz, responds to those harsh words from former speaker of the house john boehner. we begin our coverage this morning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. good morning. >> reporter: this was donald trump's first campaign rally in california, and a huge crowd of anti-trump demonstrators were there to greet him. it became an ugly night. producing the worst violence since the fights inside the canceled rally in chicago in march. this breaking out outside between trump opponents and his supporters. late thursday hundreds of anti-trump protesters in california spilling out into the streets. blocking traffic and attacking police cars. local affiliate knbc capturing this trump supporter bandaged
7:03 am
and talking to medical personnel after reporters witnessed a confrontation. police arriving in riot gear. nearly 20 arrested. inside donald trump cruising into the golden state with nearly 172 delegates, the granddaddy of them all and last stop on the road to the republican nomination. >> no state in america has suffered worse from open borders than the state of california. it's impact on jobs, wages, security, schools, hospitals, has been devastating. i love california! june 7th! >> for ted cruz, counting on a comeback, the devil is in the details. with former speaker of the house john boehner as a private event giving cruz hell. >> lucifer in the flesh. i have never worked with a more miserable son of a [ bleep ]. over my dead body he would be president. >> he allowed his inner trump to come out. when john boehner calls me lucifer, he is not directing that at me. he is directing that at you.
7:04 am
when he says that i am the worst guy he has ever worked with, he's never worked with me. >> four days to indiana. cruz and carly fiorina criss-crossing the state, now do or die for the duo. in washington trump's team feeling very much alive collecting new congressional endorsements and reading cruz his last rites. >> last tuesday was the nail in the coffin. indiana is when he realized. >> with indiana likely to go to the buzzer trump teaming up with a hoosier state hero. >> that son [ bleep ] could play for me. >> bobby knight comparing him to president truman. >> with what he did in dropping and having the guts to drop the bomb in 1944, saved -- saved billions of american lives. and here is a man who would do the same thing. >> back in trump tower in new york, the nypd responded to reports of an envelope containing white powder mailed
7:05 am
to trump's campaign office. his home is also in the building. the envelope was opened by a staff member. overnight police determined the powder was not a threat. not the first time, though. just last month authorities investigating a letter with white powder sent to the office of trump's son. later determined it too was not hazardous. >> peter, thanks. bringing in chuck "todatodd. good morning. no secret that there is not a lot of love lost between john boehner and ted cruz. in a certain way, do you think this helps ted cruz? he makes the argument that it's the establishment that doesn't like him. >> this could have helped ted cruz six months ago. it could have helped ted cruz if there was no such thing as donald trump. this hurts ted cruz now. it's emblematic of why the stop trump movement couldn't get people to rally around ted cruz. you know, there is 100%, nearly 100% conviction among republicans that donald trump will not be a good republican
7:06 am
nominee, but there is not a consensus that somehow ted cruz would be a better alternative. what you hear john boehner say is essentially what you hear behind the scenes here in washington with a lot of republicans. as much as they fear trump, they think cruz, the alternative in cruz is worse. this is why cruz is stuck where he's at right now. >> what you're saying, chuck, is the prospects for a republican -- a united republican party in this general election season are extremely dim. >> it's very dim. if the choices are trump and cruz, it's not going to be a party that's going to be able to unite with itself. and that's why, when paul ryan took himself out -- and i am convinced now the stop trump movement totally lost all of its steam when paul ryan said there is no way i -- don't expect me to be your savior at the convention. don't expect me to be somehow encouraging people to put me on the ballot. that's what we're staring at here and that's what the
7:07 am
republican party is staring at. one more point, matt. john boehner is not speaker of the house because of ted cruz, don't forget that. john boehner certainly hasn't forgotten that. >> a huge part of it. let's talk about indiana, it's supposed to be the alamo for the stop trump movement. does it still hold that potential? >> it really does. trump can lose indiana and still get to the magic number. it's a little harder. good news for trump. if he wins indiana by a point, what does ted cruz do from here? where does he go from here? what's his rationale after this. cruz has thrown it all out there. use every metaphor. throwing all the ships on the table. tried the alliance with kasich. if none of it works, where does he go? >> chuck todd, thank you. watch "meet the press" this sunday. the guest is senator ted cruz. >> convenient. there you go. breaking overnight. north korea sentences a u.s. citizen today to ten years in prison on espionage charges. soldiers led the south korean

9:47 am
or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. new layers to our famous lasagna. with three new irresistible dishes like chicken parmigiana lasagna. and seafood lovers lasagna. all with our unlimited salad and breadsticks. and all starting at $11.99. olive garden.
