7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. vinita nair is with us. bernie sanders admits in a cbs news interview that hillary clinton has a sterling resume. this comes after a day of attacks on her qualifications to be president. sanders says he only challenged clinton because she attacked him first. and he would still rather talk about the issues. >> in a wide ranging interview with charlie sanders, he said the campaign should not be for what he called tit for tat criticism. >> the charges she wasn't qualified was startling from the beginning because the clinton camp considers her credentials to be one of her strongest assets. sanders sat down last night for what was a con ten shows interview trying to say he was sending a message to the clinton
7:04 am
camp he is not going to be pushed around. >> she has years of experience. she is extremely intelligent. >> what should she say? >> i have some experience too. >> pressed by charlie rose, bernie sanders admitted that democratic front-runner hillary clinton is qualified to run. >> secretary clinton, if she is the nominee, i certainly will support her. >> it was a shift from earlier in the day when a defiant sanders wouldn't say if he would back her in november. if you think she is not qualified, will you support her if she is the nominee? >> if i am under attack for not being qualified, i will respond. >> tensions are high ahead of the caucus in new york. 436 delegates are at stake. clinton needs 635 delegates to lock up the nomination. she reminded new york voters of her hometown credentials thursday with a ride on the subway, traveling nine blocks on the 4 train in the bronx. >> so convenient. >> things got heated in philadelphia when former president bill clinton was
7:05 am
campaigning for her. [ inaudible ] >> oh! >> he took on two demonstrators who were protesting his wife's use of the term super predators in a 1996 speech about gang members. >> i don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hooked up on crack and sent them out onto the street to murder other african-american children. maybe you thought they were good citizens. she didn't. she didn't. you are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. tell the truth. >> hillary clinton has apologized for using the term "super predator," but still a sticking point for some african-americans who believe the 1990s crime bill she was
7:06 am
defending committed to mass incarcerations. both she and others are made major changes to the national criminal system. >> we asked senator sanders why clinton should apologize to the millions killed in the iraq war. and he addressed while negative attacks between the two of them have intensified. >> the tenor of this campaign has changed when you're questioning the qualification of a person to be president. whether questioning your qualifications or they haven't. >> all i'm saying. >> are you questioning their qualifications? >> you're right, okay? but what i want to say is when i see the headlines, clinton questions whether sanders is qualified to be president, you know what? we are going to respond. >> but don't you owe it to yourself and those people who may vote for you to know more than simply look at a headline. you looked at a headline and then responded questioning her qualifications. >> oh, charlie, it's not a question of a headline. here, something else. i mean, after we won in wisconsin, i think the clinton campaign -- that was our sixth victory in seven states. i think what they have said publicly is the tenor is going to change. they are going to go much more
7:07 am
negative on us, and they have. that's the fact. >> take a listen to this. this is what you said. you said that clinton should apologize for iraq war deaths. do you really -- >> for what? >> for iraqi war deaths. >> this is after i was asked to apologize for the tragedy in sandy hook. you know, put these things in the context. >> but it's tit for tat. >> it is tit for tat but i'm responding to attacks being made against me. >> i'm asking where the tenor of this campaign is going, and is that going too far to say she bears responsibility for iraqi war deaths? >> why bear responsibility for the tragedy and the horrors of sandy hook? let's get off that. of course, she didn't bear responsibility. she voted for the war in iraq. that was a very bad vote, in my view. do i hold her accountable? no. >> wow. he didn't really answer the question. >> which question? >> well, he answered the question with a question. it seems like had he very defensive response for all of the actions of late.
7:08 am
>> he really suggested several times that, you know, that they started it and he is talking about surrogates. and that he has to respond because that is the way politics is today, in his own words. >> good interview. >> very good. new york will be a key state. well, donald trump faces troubling new poll numbers this morning. a national survey found 69% of americans have an unfavorable view of trump, that includes nearly half of republican voters. the gop front-runner is still a heavy favorite in this month's new york primary. but his rivals are trying to close the gap. john kasich campaigned at a traditional deli in the bronx, while ted cruz looked for voters while making matza in brooklyn. this is what he called new york values. >> i have no regrets about standing up for the people of new york who have suffered under the failed policies of liberal democratic politicians. >> while cruz tries to sell himself to new yorkers, the new issue of "time" magazine asks if
7:09 am
he likeable enough to beat trump to the nomination? lindsey graham says cruz is the best choice. graham did not always believe that. >> if you now make trump and cruz, i think you get the same outcome. you know? whether it's death by being shot or poisoning, does it really matter? ted cruz, at his core, is an opportunist when it comes to his political areer. >> if you killed ted cruz on the floor of the senate, and the trial was in the senate, nobody could convict you. >> we may be in a position we have to rally around ted cruz the only way to stop donald trump, and i'm not sure that would work. >> you'd recommend that in order to stop donald trump, rally behind ted cruz? >> i can't believe i would say yes, but yes. >> what turns you on about cruz? >> that he is not trump. >> senator lindsey graham is with us right here in studio 57. welcome. >> well, i hate tape. we are in the process of six
7:10 am
putting in the republican primary. just bear with us. >> so why did you change your mind and what goal do you have in mind? >> number one, the field has narrowed. i think trump is a disaster for the country and the party. i just got back from mid east and no one asked me about cruz. i think president obama's foreign policy is failing. but the idea we are going to withdraw from nato, that we should ban all muslims has made it very hard to partner with people in the mid east. we need partners in the region. i think domestic and foreign policy on the trump side is gibberish. >> you hope everybody will rally behind ted cruz in order to stop donald trump? >> yeah. >> can do you it? >> yeah, i hope so. >> how will you do it? >> number one, if i can do it, anybody can do it. ted cruz is republican. he's smart as hell and run a very effective campaign. we have a lot in common but also have some real differences. he is a real republican from the more ideological spectrum than i am but not destroy our party.
7:11 am
>> can he beat hillary clinton if he is the nominee? >> yes, i think so. >> why cruz and not kasich? >> because john kasich is probably more electable, but ted cruz has run a campaign that he has become the primary alternative to trump. he represents the outside movement in the party. when you add up the votes, 65% of republicans are wanting someone outside the system. ted is in it but he is also an outsider. let me say this to my republican friends. if you parachute somebody in just on electability, paul ryan is a wonderful goi guy, doesn't want to be put in this position. i'm trying to get us the most viable nominee for 2016 that could win without destroying the party. i think trump destroys the party. if you parachute somebody in and try to ignore millions of votes, you are destroying this party so we are back to ted. >> if donald trump wins more than 50% of the vote in new york and will get almost delegates here in new york and that would mean ted cruz would have to win about 90% of the remaining delegates in order to win. it's not going to happen.
7:12 am
>> a lot better than winning 140% where kasich is at. i think he can stop trump at 1237. i think trump is going to fall short. >> if you had to place the bets on a contested convention, what is the likelihood that is going to happen? >> 4-1 it's going to happen. >> the likelihood the party leaders are going to try, in your words, parachute someone else in? >> that would be a disaster. trump is a disaster. one, i don't believe he is a republican. his policies are really bad for the country. >> even though you think it's a disaster, a lot of republicans do want to see like three or four ballots and it go to paul ryan. >> the same republicans who ignored trump. take my advice -- >> why would paul ryan be a bad candidate? >> paul ryan would be a great candidate. he should run. >> don't choose someone who hasn't run in the primaries. >> the nominee should come from one of the three. the bottom line millions of people have gone to the polls and cast our ballot. if 2,000 of us take that choice away, then i think you destroy the republican party forever. >> you mentioned you were coming back -- >> forever.
7:13 am
>> because the ted cruz people leave. the trump people will leave no matter what. ted cruz is a part of my party. donald trump is an interloper. i don't think he is a reliable republican. he has given money to every liberal democrat in the world. whatever you say about ted cruz, he is smart, conservative, he represents the philosophy that he and i agree upon more than donald trump. >> "time" magazine said he is likeable enough. >> compared to who? bernie and hillary? yes. if we are electing a president on the like ability we need to start over. >> what are the allies in the middle east saying? both of those candidates -- >> what is going on in america? first thing out of the mouth from the prime minister of israel, saudi arabia, turkey, egypt was, what is this with trump? >> what do you tell them? >> i said it's the silly season, that he's not going to be nominee of my party, that he doesn't represent traditional mainstream republican foreign policy.
7:14 am
he's -- america is angry and they are responding to the anger, but this guy will not be the president of the united states and he doesn't represent the republican party that i love when it comes to domestic and foreign policy. they are unnerved, but i've tried to be reassuring. i said the congress is there no matter who is the president. >> senator graham, thank you. breaking news from the vatican. a new document on sex, marriage and family life. pope francis tells catholics to let their conscience show them how to behave and not priest rules and tells the priests not to judge. seth doane is here with more. >> reporter: good morning. there are no bombshells, no major changes in church doctrine. the church, for instance, reconfirmed its position on birth control. but in these 200-plus pages we did see a pragmatic pope, a pope that seems to understand the pressures of modern families and relationships.
7:15 am
it's the pope's guide to love, sex, and marriage. father thomas rosica from the holy press office says it's some of the most beautiful language he has ever seen in a papal document. >> this is not a manual of answers to all of the great problems. it's, rather, an honest attempt to raise all of the great questions that families are facing today. >> reporter: francis famously said, who am i to judge when asked about homosexuals, but did not stop him on a judgment of same-sex marriage in this paper. it says there are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions. he calls divorce evil. but he has left the door open for people who are remarried without an annulment to take communion. on gender identity the document says accept our humanity as was created but that's not exactly the acceptance that the transgender community was looking for. perhaps most surprising is the
7:16 am
way francis acknowledges the pressures of modern relationships. moss is a professor of theology at the university of notre dame. >> he tackled issues some marriage counselors wouldn't address. like being attracted to people outside of your marriage and diminishing attraction to one another as people age. >> while this document may not usher in radical change, this pope did recognize the great diversity among the world's 1.2 billion catholics. >> reporter: the pope left room for discretion among catholics in different regions and at times was quite practical, even offering a bit of marital advice to young couples, suggesting that they have a morning kiss or take trips together or, for instance, share the chores. >> that doesn't sound so bad. seth doane in rome, thank you. a spring storm could bring a blast of winter to the middle east and northeast. the nasty mix of snow and rain is targeting several states today and into the weekend. green bay, detroit, and pittsburgh are among the places
7:17 am
that could see up to 4 inches of snow. severe weather slammed the mid-atlantic yesterday and ripped off roofs and damaged cars near baltimore. and a possible tornado barreled through southern florida. more than a dozen homes and businesses were damaged. a car chase in l.a. looked like showbiz and l.a. police said they have never seen anything like it. two suspects put down the top on a convertible and showed off in front of spectators. carter evans shows us the joy ride that ended with a curtain call and cheers from the audience. >> top down on the convertible. that is kind of nuts but a funny kind of nuts. what this guy is doing -- whoa! whoa! >> in los angeles, car chases have become a familiar sight. they seem to happen all the time. but for these two men running from the police turned into a bizarre scene right out of a hollywood movie. >> whoa! you know, i don't know if this guy is showboating or what he is trying to do right there. very dangerous situation.
7:18 am
>> the robbery suspects took police on a tour of some of the city's busiest and most iconic roadways. >> their 15 minutes of fame might come to a sudden stop here. >> their blue mustang doing doughnuts on hollywood boulevard. [siren sound] speeding through intersections in laurel canyon. >> tmz! look at the tour bus. the tour bus is trying to get out of the way. >> and sneaking in and out of traffic on the 101 freeway. >> high speeds and wet roads car with the top down, these guys are, obviously, having a good time out here. >> in restaurants and bars, people couldn't turn away. >> whoa, got spike strips. >> after hitting spike strips and getting a flat tire, they kept going. eventually these things do come to an end and this time it was in south l.a. >> these two guys, their moment to shine. >> but not before the suspects nonchalantly posed for a few selfies and some high five's.
7:19 am
fortunately for police, the two surrendered without resisting and with no reported injuries. for "cbs this morning," carter evans, los angeles. >> was it worth it? >> i think they were already going to jail because of the robbery so they went out, you know, whatever. >> tmz got some good pictures from that one. china, ahead, "60 minutes" explores how a big push for hollywood is pushing china. and you'll meet the angelina ,,

i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and vinita nair. gayle is off. in a cbs news interview, bernie sanders says hillary clinton is extremely intelligent and has years of experience and sanders said he called her unqualified to be president because she attacked him first. the clinton camp insyvrets she never said he was unqualified. >> clinton did say sanders hadn't, quote, done his home work when ta work before talking to the board. >> a lot of people are talking about your daily news interview, talking about breaking up banks, talking about what's necessary to do if a financial firm is too big to fail. >> right, right. >> they say you don't have a plan for that. you have these ideas but no plan to lay it out. >> go to my website, charlie. my senate website and you'll find legislation that i've introduced which is pretty specific about how we break up
8:03 am
the banks and what that legislation requires is that the secretary of the treasury will determine which banks are endangering the fiscal health of america, which banks might be quote, unquote, too big to fail and bring down a significant part of the economy. >> how would you break them up? >> how? >> yes. >> you would determine which banks are too big to fail, that can destroy the economy. >> how would you determine that? >> that's not very hard. that's what economists and fiscal analysts do. if a bank has a great deal of size and the bank is unstable financially and if that bank were to go under and bring down a significant part of the economy, that bank should not exist. if it's too big to fail, it's too big to exist. >> sanders campaign said he would use current laws to break up those banks within a year if he becomes president. christine lagarde is one of the most powerful leaders in global finance. she's managing director of the
8:04 am
international monetary fund, the imf. she pushes for world cooperation despite fears of economic insecurity and terrorism. we're pleased to have her here in studio 57. welcome. >> thank u. >> we have many questions of you about the global economy and china and all of that. first, what we said to senator sanders about financial institutions being too big, does the global economy need for banks to be broken up? >> you know, i would be more concerned about the nonbank financial institutions at the moment. i know there is a lot of focus on banks and how they should be broken up. >> like what? >> i think a lot of work has been done in being able to resolve them if they fail to deliver. but there's a lot of financial transactions happening outside the banks. >> shadow banking? >> absolutely. there is good shadow banking, there is good shadow banking. what matches is that this sector
8:05 am
has to be supervised and regulated so that the banking institutions in general be protected. >> let's talk about the health of the global economy. you said in a speech that there's been an increased risk in uncertainty and we are on alert. what worries you? >> what worries me is that growth is at risk. it's at risk because you have the combination of chinese slowing down. you have low commodity prices and we think for much longer. third, you have financial tightening goes by the different monetary policies being used around the world, between the fed, the bank of japan and the ecb. that produces tightening of financing and currencies which are hurting. the combination of the three are exposing a fragile growth at the moment.
8:06 am
>> are you worried about the chinese growth? >> i'm not worried about it because i believe 6.5% is nothing to be ashame of. >> which is part of the five-year plan. >> it is lower than what we have dealt with over the years. it is moving from manufacturing a certain kind of manufacturing to more services. moving from exports to markets. this is changing in terms of monetary policy and exchange currency regime. so all of that combined is an incredible shift to, you know, organize, manage and for people to anticipate. i will not worry. we don't think there will be any hard landing as has been sometimes feared. but equally it's a big, big change. >> huge influence. >> what about the u.s. economy? what recommendations do you have for the u.s. economy? >> we recommend for many countries, u.s. included, what we call the three-pronged
8:07 am
approach. it means taking structural measures, adopting a sound growth friendly fiscal policy and using monetary policy to support the other two. so this is what we recommend. to give you an example in the u.s., for instance, we believe that minimum wage would be a very good idea. >> increasing the minimum wage. >> yes. >> to what, $15 an hour? >> i don't know exactly what the right threshold would be. i think there are differences between states and there are, you know, states where it's within the jurisdiction of the state authorities. it's concerning when you see that 50 million american people live in poverty. and in that 50 million, 40% actually have a job. >> speak to the issue of trade, because in the political debate, both parties have problems with trade. >> and sounding the alarm about protectionism, saying the average man is worried they basically, the cards are stacked against them. they should avoid this knee-jerk
8:08 am
reaction to say let's void other countries. >> history has told us time and time again that building barriers, protectionism, thinking you can deal with international totally interconnected issues such as pandemics, terrorism and refugees behind borders is an illusion and it's very conducive to extremely disruptive situations. we've seen that in europe. we've seen that in many parts of the world. walls don't actually change the situation for the better. >> donald trump has proposed a 45% tariff on china. what would that do to the global economy? >> i think it would be massively disruptive. i also think that all countries are part of a big club, which is called the wto, which requires that tariff and nontariff barriers be discussed, many
8:09 am
eliminated, in order to facilitate trade. i would very much hope that the united states continue to be a leader in the world economy and a good player of the game that it has determined the rules of. >> finally, what would happen if britain leads the european union? >> we are in the process of assessing the economic outcome of such a decision. we believe that it's not going -- it would not be a positive and we -- >> it would do great damage to the european economy. >> i personally hope very much it doesn't happen. >> christine guard, wonderful to have you here. we have breaking news on a story we brought you earlier this morning. police say they arrested a suspect in the killing of university of texas student haruka weiser. they will hold a news conference shortly. they are the photo-ops

8:16 am
>> reporter: much of garnet's spears young life was spent seeking medical attention for often unexplained health issues, something lacy frequently posted about on social media. >> he was in and out of the hospital for the first nine weeks of his life. and afterwards. >> reporter: at 10 weeks old, doctors at a hospital in alabama found his sodium level to be unusually high but that was just the beginning. >> the biggest problem we had was we couldn't get him to eat. so he was losing weight. >> reporter: garnet had surgery at 9 months old to insert a feeding tube. >> they were hopeful that within time he wouldn't have so much problems eating. >> reporter: however, lacy says, garnet continued to have feeding issues. so she took him to more doctors. through the years, some doctors had concerns about the cause of garnet's medical ailments. one noted in a letter obtained by "48 hours" that lacy might
8:17 am
suffer from munchhaasen by proxy. >> it's faking illness in someone else and inducing illness, mostly to seek attention. >> reporter: in january 2014, 5-year-old garnet was taken, again, to a hospital. he was admitted with seizure-like symptoms. later during that hospital stay, garnet is in distress, stops breathing and tests showed an eerily familiar condition, high levels of sodium which caused his brain to swell. >> this is my 5-year-old son on life support. >> reporter: two days later, garnet is officially declared dead. doctors could not figure out how garnet's sodium level had gotten so high unless someone had given him salt. five months after garnet's death, lacy spears was charged with murder. >> i didn't kill my son. i never poisoned him with salt.
8:18 am
>> then why is the sodium level so high? >> you would have to ask the hospital that. >> troy roberts is with us now. it's so hard because it's a mother and a son. >> a little boy, 5 years old, sweet little boy. >> i don't think any of us would have thought salt could do this. >> me either. within i first got this story i was like, what, i didn't know you could kill someone by giving them toxic levels of sodium. you can. it causes the brain to swell, which leads to death, among other things. >> does the state have other evidence against her? >> yes. they went to lacy spears' apartment and they recovered two feeding bags and inside the bags, lab results showed there were toxic levels of sodium. the equivalent of 69 small salt packs that you would get at a fast food restaurant if you went to a diner and got a table shaker of salt, it would be a little bit more than half of that. that was recovered from the bags. the chain of custody was lost for about a day or so but that
8:19 am
was found in the bags. i asked her, how do you explain that? she goes, i don't know. >> what about a psychological analysis of the mother? >> it's very difficult. she claims she doesn't have this disorder. you have to go back years. you have to review their history. lacy took this little boy, no h norah, to 25 hospitals at the very least. and in the weeks leading up to his death she was researching the harmful effects of sodium on the body. she did that when she was a baby and five years later she was researching the same stuff. >> must have been a difficult interview. troy roberts, thank you so much. watch troy's full report, "a mother accused" tomorrow night on "48 hours," at 10:00, 9:00 central here on cbs. a new campaign encourages you to call someone in sweden. why? we try out the new service that lets the world into swedes' lives. that's ahead on "cbs this morning."
