welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. dana jacobson of cbs sports network is with us. parts of the south are waking up to scenes of destruction. at least four tornadoes touched down in three states yesterday. an apparent twister in mississippi snapped trees and blew the roof off a house. >> the extreme weather also triggered flash flooding. the stormy wet weather is expected to reach the east coast today. david begnaud is in new hope, mississippi, near some of the worst damage. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. no fooling people here. what say saw last night was a tornado, they believe. now that it's daylight, we get a better view. this one caused a good bit of damage. the neighbor was inside the home when the tornado blew through.
7:04 am
he and his girlfriend hid under a bead. it was over in a minute. >> sam taylor reported this funnel cloud moving toward new hope. multiple tornadoes reported across mississippi and alabama on thursday. >> there it is. >> reporter: high winds started trees and power lines across roads and emergency workers responded on foot. >> i'm driving and then not drive anymore and then i'm in a ditch. >> reporter: andrew junkins said when he heard the tornado sirens, he headed for his truck. hail as large as golf balls hit home. and, if not hail, rain. nearly 5 inches of it washed out roads along parts of the lower mississippi river. flood warnings have been issued from louisiana to georgia. in northeastern oklahoma communities are now cleaning up after several tornadoes touched down overnight on wednesday. >> just really almost caved in this home.

7:06 am
>> reporter: good morning. if you think donald trump had a difficult week, and it was a doozie by any standards, next week, at least from the perspective of delegate mathematics could be as bad. trump is heading into a buzzsaw in wisconsin. making new unity conversations with the gop brass even more important. donald trump sought a meeting at republican party headquarters in d.c. on thursday, eager to change the subject. >> well, it was a very good meeting. i think they wanted to really discuss, you know, unity and i like discussing unity, too. >> reporter: the visit covered a possible contested convention and trump's tattered pledge to support the gop nominee. afterwards, rnc chairman reince priebus issued this warning. >> they're not going to get the data and the tools of the rnc and run to be our nominee and tell me that they're not going
7:07 am
to support the party. >> reporter: trump also continued lobbying to be the nominee. even if he doesn't win a majority of delegates. >> if we're millions of votes ahead of everyone else and hundreds of delegates ahead of everyone else, i really think that who ever has that kind of advantage should get it. >> reporter: in the face of trump's high historic unfavorability ratings, the gop rivals braced for a fight. >> he is really unprepared to be commander in chief and leader of the free world. >> there's no doubt that donald trump is the kim kardashian presidential candidate. he sits on twitter and makes a lot of noise, but he has no solutions to fixing the problems. >> reporter: ahead of tuesday's potentially pivotal wisconsin primary, ads have begun flooding the air waves. >> if ted cruz's mouth is moving, he's lying. >> reporter: trump loyalists very late to the game are scrambling to revive the front-runner after a rocky week. >> sure i get brief when i sand boating for crump but you know what?
7:08 am
i want to protect my family. >> trump is still dealing with the fallout of saying if abortion were made illegal, people should be punished for obtaining one. trump said yesterday that msnbc cut out the full quoted con convoluted conversation. the network responded, quote, no part of the exchange between trump and chris matthews was edit out. tension is building this morning between the democratic candidates. they will also face off in wisconsin on tuesday with 86 delegates up for grabs. but, yesterday, both hillary clinton and bernie sanders campaigned here in new york. a win in that primary on april 19th would have big implications for both candidates. clinton showed her frustration during one of the rallies. she battled a green peace activist who questioned a source of her political donations. julianna goldman is in washington and she is tracking the democratic race. good morning. >> good morning. when hillary clinton announced she was running for president last april, she probably never thought she would still be engaged in a primary fight
7:09 am
against bernie sanders nearly a year later. it appears some of those frustrations are now boiling over. >> i have money from people who work for fossil fuel companies. i am so sick of the sanders campaign hilying about me. i'm sick of it. >> campaigning thursday on her home turf of westchester, new york, a visibly irritated hillary clinton sounded off in response to a claim she is taking money from the fossil fuel industry. beie sanders' campaign maintains clinton and her super pacs is accepted millions from the industry, but clinton says it's money from the people who work and sanders, himself, accepted the same. >> the bernie people came to say that. we are very sorry you're leaving. >> earlier clinton shot back at protesters who shouted, if she wins, they lose. >> they don't want to hear the
7:10 am
contrast between my experience, my plans, my vision, what i know i can get done and what my opponent is promising. >> i am very proud that i was born here in new york city. >> last night, thousands turned out in the bronx for the brooklyn-born sanders who is making a strong play in new york. with 247 delegates at stake, the state is a critical test for him, even though he trails the former new york senator there by 12 points. >> if we win here in new york, we are going to make it to the white house.ñe >> clinton's campaign says the delegate math works against sanders but he raised more than $40 million in march and as long as he is flush with cash he can stay in the race. last night, he appeared on "the late show with stephen colbert" answering questions about delegates and had a little bit of fun, too, with a t-shirt gun that he spent some time shooting into the audience. >> the folk hero role.
7:11 am
"face the nation" moderator john dickerson will interview trump today for sunday's broadcast. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> so hillary clinton seems to be losing patience with the bernie sanders campaign, frustrated by the bernie sanders campaign and suggesting they are lying about her, right? >> they've suggested that privately and you saw in that moment she popped. i mean, you know, people said she needed to show authenticity. and that was a full face of authenticity. bernie sanders is saying she gets money from these groups and that has a corrupting influence and she is sick of it. that's what we saw happen on the rope line. >> is his campaign strengthening here in new york? >> it is strengthening, but it is -- the question is how can it get stronger than it has been? it has strength nobody would have predicted when it started, but is it strong enough to get
7:12 am
past that delegate lead she has. and while it's strengthening, there's no sign yet -- the only sign will be if he wins in states he is not supposed to win and new york would be a good one. >> we heard about the meetings that donald trump had yesterday. it's sort of the question of who needs the other more when you get to the convention. does trump need the republican party or do they need him? >> they both need each other right now. donald trump needs the rnc because he needs to say i'm a unifier and i'm for republican party unity. he has a ragged week and an attempt to show he is not a chaotic candidate and the rnc needs to show they are fair to him. if it gets to convention and he doesn't have the majority delegates, there's going to be a fight. he is going to complain that they're not being fair to him. what is interesting in that meeting there was a discussion of the delegates he has lost in louisiana and he seemed to be learning information he didn't know about the process. he certainly is behind in terms of the inside game about these delegates. he is trying to play catch-up. >> major painted quite a picture when he said that donald trump
7:13 am
is walking into a buzzsaw in wisconsin on tuesday. if the polls go the way he's anticipating, what will that mean for his campaign? >> if you're a winner and you don't win, it's a problem. one of the things we have seen is since the campaign has elongated a little bit, not a contest every week that donald trump is winning, there has been this pause period. if he doesn't win in wisconsin, that means almost a month between arizona and the contest in new york where he will win. it will be tough for him. >> thank you, john. >> sure. >> you can watch john's interview with donald trump on "face the nation" on sunday. he will speak with reince priebus, the rnc chair. next hour, senator bernie sanders will be here in studio 57, all that coming up on "cbs this morning". virginia state police this morning are investigating the motive of shooter who killed a state police officer at a crowded bus station. trooper chad dermyer died in yesterday's shoot-out. the gunman was also killed. two women were wounded.
7:14 am
jeff pegues is at the scene of the shooting in richmond. >> reporter: good morning. investigators have been going over the crime scene here overnight and interviewing witnesses and looking at surveillance tape as well. what is still not clear this morning is what sparked the deadly confrontation here and why a man came to this greyhound bus terminal armed with a gun in his waistband, eventually shooting and killing a trooper. >> all units be advised. we have an active shooter. still actively shooting. all officers proceed with caution. >> reporter: about a dozen virginia state troopers were performing a skill training drill at a richmond bus station thursday afternoon when a man appeared near the bathroom entrance. >> this man was like, get down! get down! threw me to the ground. crawl, crawl! >> reporter: state trooper chad dermyer approached the man and began talking to him. authorities say dermyer wasn't wearing a bullet-proof vest. >> the male subject pulled out a handgun and shot chad multiple times. the male subject continued firing his weapon as two other state police troopers returned
7:15 am
fire. >> reporter: dermyer, a 37-year-old former marine, husband, and father of two, died from multiple gunshot wounds. the gunman was also killed. witnesses describe the panic and confusion from the hundreds of passengers at the station. >> the loud noise didn't make sense. i was like, there's in way that's gun shots. but then there were five, ten more. >> reporter: the fbi assisted at the scene but virginia authorities say there is no evidence of any link to terrorism. >> there are many more unanswered questions. it was quite a tragedy for all of us. >> reporter: the two women who were injured in the shooting here are expected to survive. one of them is a member of the binghamton university track team. the state trooper is now the 30th police officer to die in the line of duty so far this year. half have been killed by gunfire. >> thank you, jeff. rescuers in eastern india this morning say there is no possibility of finding more survivors in the rubble of an overpass that collapsed

7:17 am
a 75,000 bonus for each of her teammates. >> the u.s. wins the 2015 world cup! >> reporter: if it had been the men who won, that payment would have been more than $390,000. in a complainant filed with the equal opportunity commission, lloyd and her teammates said they got a total of $2 million for winning the world cup while the men earned $9 million for losing in the round of 16. goalkeeper hope solo signed on to the complaint. in february, she denounced soccer's sexist pay disparity on "cbs this morning." >> this is the time we need to push for equality and what is right. people are paying attention. >> reporter: espnw analyst julie foudy, who played for two world cup winning teams, say the women have long felt undervalued. >> it's basically saying, why are we still having this conversation about the little things and about respect and about the things that matter so much to this women's team. >> reporter: in a statement, u.s. women's soccer said for 30 years we have been a world
