>> your friday. [laughter] >> uh-oh. >> have a great day, everyone. >> have a good one. see you at noon. good morning in the west, tuesday, april 26th, 2016. welcome to cbs. donald trump slams rivals as weak and pathetic. president obama talks with charlie about china, north korea and vladimir putin. plus house speaker paul ryan joins us in studio. something to consider, how fresh is your fruit. new technology could reveal information the food industry does not want you to see. >> look at today's eye-opener. your world in 90 seconds. so they colluded.
actually i was happy because it shows how weak they are. it shows how pathetic they are. >> trump fights back against cruz and kasich. >> you guys are talking about this 24/7, like this is some thunderbolt. >> donald trump is going to scream and yell and curse and insult and probably cry and whine some as well. >> we're in this race to win. we're going to be in california in june, philadelphia back here in july. >> what he and his supporters are saying just doesn't add up. i have 2.7 million more votes. >> sending 250 special forces to syria. what does that represent? >> although we are not going to be sending ground troops in to fight, we are going to try to find out what works and then double down. >> powerful spring storms in southern california. strong winds picking up and tossing a heavy canopy. >> it was almost like a spro movie. >> in florida, a small plane crashed onto a home. three people in critical condition.
tom brady's suspension back on after an appeals court ruled he should take a seat. >> we're pleased with that and hope we can move forward from here. >> look at him go. >> a wayward bear caused a big scare in a los angeles neighborhood. >> i looked out the back door and saw a bear. >> purple. >> no one knew this was coming. how do you keep something this big a secret? i think beyonce should be running the cia. we could rename it the beyoncia. thrones and alliance to stop donald trump. >> in a last ditch effort to sink donald trump. team krasich. >> it's a crazy plan. as long as they do it three months ago, it just might work. >> this morning's eye-opener is presented by toyota, let's go places.
welcome to "cbs this morning." voting is under way in a string of primaries that could give a big boost to both presidential front-runners. donald trump is favored to win all five republican races in pennsylvania, maryland, delaware, connecticut, and rhode island. >> these states are not part of the pact where ted cruz and john kasich vowed to work together against trump. the billionaire says the alliance shows his opponents are weak and pathetic. major garrett with us in the studio. good morning. >> good morning. john kasich told me this awkward 11th hour alliance is protecting the country against hillary clinton, perhaps about protecting the nomination. donald trump knows this and let go with a barrage of attacks on, well, just about everything. >> it shows how weak they are. it shows how pathetic they are.
>> donald trump predictedly pounced on a new pact with ted cruz and john kasich to let the stronger challenge trump in three upcoming primaries. >> you have lyin' ted. he's a joker. he can't do it. the kasich thing is interesting. here is a guy who says i'm just going to stay. like a stubborn, like if you have a child who is a stubborn brat. i don't care daddy. >> trump even mocked his table manners. >> stuffing pancakes in his mouth like this. they talk about presidential. i see, presidential. puts pancakes this big in his mouth, shoving them in. >> urged kasich supporters in indiana to set aside misgivings and unite against trump. >> what that means is indiana gets a straight and direct choice between our campaign and donald trump.
>> in philadelphia kasich first told his supporters to stick with him. hours later in maryland, kasich told us this. >> i'm not going to be campaigning in indiana. voters can figure out what they want to do and let them do what they feel they should. >> you would welcome their votes, right? >> i would never tell a voter who votes for me that i don't like their vote. you guys are talking about this 24/7 like this is some thunderbolt, like this is something so shocking. >> the highly unusual cruz/kasich gambit, trump's momentum. >> may have a good night. then day after tomorrow the race will shift back west. as it shifts back west, there are a lot of states that will be very good. >> for all their denials, this is an unconventional strategy to take down a front-runner and let anti-trump super pacs to get more money where the test exists. the first indiana. if it succeeds, anti-trump forces will have a playbook.
if not, they will have trump and no more illusions. >> once again, nothing typical about this campaign 2016. to be continued for sure. thank you, major. polls show hillary clinton is the favorite going into the primaries. the sweep could make her nomination almost a sure thing. big prize pennsylvania, 189 delegates up for grabs there. cbs news ballots ground tracker shows clinton leading bernie sanders by 8 points. nancy cordeson in philadelphia where both candidates held primaries before campaign day. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. sanders may say fancy polling but when we because the up with him in philadelphia last night, he was not willing to entertain even the possibility that he might be all but mathematically eliminated from contention after tonight. >> if you look at state polling, you're behind in pennsylvania, maryland and connecticut. if you wake up on wednesday and you've lost most or all of these side states, what do you do then? >> what we do is go to west virginia and kentucky and head
out to california, the largest state in our country. i believe that the people in every state in this country have a right to cast the ballot, to determine who they would like to see as president of the united states and equally important the agenda that they want the democratic party to have. do they want to address the issues of rampant poverty in the country, massive income and wealth inequality. >> hillary clinton talks about these issues, too. is she strong enough on poverty to win over your supporters if she needs to? >> i'll let my supporters make their own decisions. >> but you have a lot of influence over them. >> we're in this race to win. we're going to be in california in june and philadelphia back here in july. my job is to win this nomination. if i don't win the nomination, i'm going to do everything i can to make sure the republican does not get elected president of the united states. >> reporter: at a town hall last night, clinton noted she didn't place any conditions on her support for president obama back in 2008 the way that sanders
seems to be hinting he would place on her for his support. but, norah, he's a different kind of candidate. he got into the race to highlight issues like income inequality so he sees very little downside for holding out on those issues. >> nancy, thank you so much. managing editor of bloomberg politics. good morning. >> good morning. >> all right. so this cruz-kasich gambit. too little, too late or will it work? >> the alliance. >> it's an act of a little bit of panic, a sense that the door is closing, window is closing. >> long lasting. >> yes, the runway is now shortened to the point everyone is going oh, my god. the key thing here is this is all about indiana where basically at anti-cruz -- anti-trump forces come to the conclusion if he wins as we expect him to and goes to indiana and wins in indiana, he'll basically be unstoppable.
the motivating factor in this alliance is ted cruz realizing if they didn't get kasich to stop campaigning in indiana, they would likely get cruz in indiana. if we lose indiana we're doomed. i'm the only one that can beat cruz here, please stop campaigning. you've seen yesterday already kasich saying -- >> there's cracks. >> kasich saying i'm not telling my voters not to vote for me in indiana. it's not that big a deal. the whole thing has a slap dash feel to it. >> how do you know voters will vote for cruz. >> you don't. the whole point is not so much to change anyone's mind to is committed to vote for kasich, they probably will still vote for kasich, there's still an undecided vote there. the question was also about signaling the anti-trump super pacs about what to do with their money in indiana. so focus on propping up cruz, maybe attack kasich a little bit. try to depress kasich's vote a little bit and move that undecided vote into cruz's column rather than splitting it
between cruz and kasich. again, it's a very thin margin they are playing with here. trump is about 40% in indiana now. if he gets another 3, 4 points, he's likely to win under any circumstances. >> is paul manafort making a difference? >> he says that with a straight face. >> he went down and said donald trump will be different, presidential, a different guy. >> now kasich stuffing pancakes. >> talking about lyin' ted, 1-for-38 kasich. >> this is all an act. >> it is. there's some element of what manafort is beginning to telegraph to republican establishme establishme establishme establishment tarrians, the wall, it's going to go away this summer, which is a really cynical point of view but could be true. >> could turn away some of his right original supporters. >> it could.
i think trump understands he's going to have to pivot to the center in a general election. manafort is exposing that in an unusually frank way. >> thank you, john. >> always good to see you. president obama is back at the white house this morning after a week in the middle east and europe. "air force one" touched down monday evening in joint base andrews outside washington. we spoke with the president yesterday in germany, wide ranging interview. he had just announced 250 more american troops will go to syria. they will help in the fight against isis, also known as isil. >> us dismantling isil is a priority. although we are not going to be sending ground troops in to fight, we are going to try to find out what works and then double down. one of the things that's worked so far is us putting special forces in for training and advising of local forces but also intelligence gathering. >> let me pivot to china. secretary of defense has been in
the region. how aggressive do you see the action in the south china sea and do you worry they will cross some line in which you'll have to respond more aggressively? >> i've been consistent since i've been president in believing that a productive, candid relationship between the united states and china is vital not just to our two countries but world peace and security. we're a lot better off with a china that feels confident. >> not a zero sum game. >> not a zero sum game. what is clear, they have a tendency to view some of the immediate regional issues or disputes as a zero sum game. so with respect to the south china sea, rather than operate under international norms and rules, their attitude is we're the biggest kids around here and we're going to push aside the
philippines or vietnamese. but it doesn't mean that we're trying to act against china, we just want them to be partners with us. where they break out of international rules and norms, we're going to hold them to account. >> what about north korea finally? >> north korea is a massive challenge. our first priority is to protect the american people and our allies. create a japan vulnerable to actions north korea is engaging in. they are erratic enough. their leader is personally irresponsible enough that we don't want them getting close. but it's not something that lends itself to an easy solution. we could obviously destroy north korea with our arsenals. but aside from the humanitarian
cost of that, they are right next door to our vital ally, republic of korea. one of the things we have been doing is spending a lot more time positioning our missile defense systems so that even as we try to resolve the underlying problem of nuclear development inside of north korea, we're also setting up a shield that can at least block the relatively low level threats they are posing right now. >> that seems like a little bit of news there, setting up a shield. >> it is. the interesting thing, too, about the new 250 troops going in, special forces, i said to him, what's the strategy here? he talked about what they are doing, how important it was for them to be there, because people coming in and out of raqqah. he also when i said to him, do they have -- are they given the right to certainly and destroy?
he said, i don't want to talk about that. in iraq, the secretary of defense has said specifically special forces do have that right. >> that's an important point, very important point. >> in our next hour you'll hear president obama talk about the threat posed by russia and vladimir putin and you can see the full interview tonight on my pbs program. >> i'm thinking yesterday you were in germany, today back at the table. >> quickly, as i was leaving it was sort of raining in germany, i could see out my window "air force one" and they were beginning to load. it's a huge plane. >> now you're back here. that's good. a series of storms lining up to bring wet weather to the west. winds 65 miles an hour blasted parts of southern california yesterday. knocked over kfc sign and tossed an awning on top of cars. chief weather caster from cbs tracking our severe weather. lonnie, what do you see? good morning. >> you know when i'm seeing on the west coast not looking bad. yesterday preceding winds. i'm looking at this cloud deck with the wet weather moving in
more so tomorrow and into the day thursday. today the big story is the mid sebs of the country, nebraska down into texas where you see oranges or red, large dancing hail, tornadic activity there. the timing of this whole system is going to be more so later in the day. national weather service thinks 70% chance for outbreak in that area. wherever you see this pink shaded area, you have got to be on alert. you hear the sirens, you've got to move. here is how we see it one more time. nebraska to texas, highest probability, 2:00 in the afternoon to 4:00 in the morning. you have got to stay alert. again, if you live in this portion of the country, you know what to do when you hear those sirens. just be prepared. >> thank you so much. one of the nfl's biggest stars tom brady will likely miss the first four games of the upcoming season over deflategate. a federal court ruled the patriots quite a bit must serve the suspension handed down by the league. gillette stadium in foxboro with how it's a big win for nfl and
commissioner roger goodell. good morning. >> good morning. it really has nothing at all to do whether tom brady had anything to do with underinflated footballs and everything to do with whether the commissioner roger goodell has the authority to impose a four-game suspension. ultimately, the court decided they did. >> they were very firm in their decision, that it was within our authority. the judgments were based on solid facts. so we're actually pleased with that. >> the second circuit court of appeals sided with the nfl monday upholding tom brady's four-game suspension. >> it's a power struggle between how much power the nfl really does wield over the players. >> the court ruled roger goodell properly exercised his broad discretion signing 2011 collective bargaining agreement between players' union and team owners. >> all fans want to know, what happened. but that wasn't the job of this court. >> arthur miller, the dean of the sports institute at new york university said monday's ruling
has little to do with deflated footballs. >> it doesn't say brady was guilty or not guilty. it really is a decision about process. >> the league applauded the decision while the nfl players association said they were disappointed. they claim goodell did not serve as a fair arbitrator. >> i didn't alter the ball in any way. >> brady denied allegations patriots staff intentionally tampered with their footballs during afc championship game against indianapolis colts. last february patriots owner bob craft defended his team on "cbs this morning." >> we won the super bowl 28-24 and the league pretty much had full charge of the footballs. >> months later star tight end rob gronkowski agreed. >> just get the four games wiped out baby. >> tom has to be concerned with his own legacy. >> he says the league is the clear winner. >> a good day for nfl.
people are questioning the game more in terms of health risks. on sunday people want to see the nfl. >> reporter: the players' union says they are weighing their options and tom brady can appeal, if he chooses. norah. >> all right. not only sundays but thursdays. we love football many nights of the week. thank you so much. we will talk with commissioner roger goodell thursday about the brady ruling and the nfl draft. that's going to be thursday right here on "cbs this morning." >> you're going to be okay? today i thought you might be wearing black. >> because of the brady suspension? the story is not over. >> more to come. small plane sla from our kpix5 studios in san francisco, good morning, everybody. stepping out the door this morning, we have some cool conditions. visibility a little limited due to a little haze in the atmosphere as we zoom out. cool temperatures, 40s and 50s and then later today increasing

carried out those killings. >> the news is back in the morning here on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota, let's go places. prius owners from all over america have descended on the chase - hi! to play what appears to be an automotive shell game with authorities. ♪ it's total confusion down here. the prius 4 have literally vanished. they're just gone.

"the new york times" reporteds on a dire warning from america's top intelligence official. james clapper says isis is running secret terror cells in britain, germany, and italy. his remarks come as new images emerge from the paris attacks. a warning, the pictures are graphic. they show the moment a suicide
bomber triggered his explosives in a crowded restaurant last november. remarkably, none of the diners nearby were killed. >> wow. britain's "guardian" -- what were you going to say? >> i guarantee you this was under consideration when the president met with the leaders. >> you mean better coordination of intelligence, yeah. >> and whether there's a secret cell. >> it's needed. britain's "guardian" reports on ukraine marking the 30th anniversary of the chernobyl disaster. a solemn ceremony was held this morning. a botched test at the nuclear plant triggered an explosion. over the past three decades, thousands have suffered from radiation-linked illnesses. the plain dealer of cleveland reports on the $6 million settlement with a young black boy's family. tamir rice was playing with a pellet gun in a park when he was
shot by an officer. a grand jury decided just last year not to indict the officer or his partner. "usa today" reports more than half a million people are pledging to boycott target stores. the american family association is collecting signatures to fight the retailer's policy on bathroom use by transgender people. the company announced last week that workers and customers can use the restroom that corresponds to their gender identity. and "the wall street journal" reports that federal regulators are poised to approve a huge merger between charter communications and time warner cable. this deal is worth about $55 billion. it would create the second largest home internet provider. the deal comes with some tough restrictions aimed at promoting competition in online video. the new company cannot charge customers based on data usage. cbs news has learned investigators are looking at the possibility a mexican drug cartel killed eight members of an ohio family in a pre-planned
execution. david begnaud is near one of the four crime scenes in pike county as the manhunt intensifies. david, good morning. >> reporter: norah, good morning. the road leading to the crime vane is still blocked off this morning, and the properties are still surrounded in police tape. along with the involvement of a mexican cartel, that is not the only motive being considered this morning. they're also looking at the possibility this may have been drug activity with someone locally, a possible revenge killing, or a family dispute. it's been four days since those bodies were found, and there's no arrest as of this morning. a law enforcement source confirms to cbs news that investigators found some 200 marijuana plants. they were inside an indoor grow operation that was found in some of the homes where eight members of the rhoden family were executed. the size of the operation, according to the source, indicates that the marijuana was being grown for sale and not for personal use. >> there's a drug problem in most areas can around here. >> reporter: law enforcement
sources estimate that the street value of the marijuana plants is nearly half a million dollars. ohio's attorney general is heading up the investigation. >> do you think that may have been a factor in these murders? >> we have no idea. i mean, we're running these leads out. there's many different theories. >> reporter: more than 60 people have been interviewed by investigators. isiah jones says he was detained at gunpoint during a traffic stop. he was questioned for six hours then released. >> what do you want people to know who may think, oh, he was questioned, did he have something to do with it? what do you want people to know? >> i really want people to know that i really had nothing to do with it and that these were also friends of mine and that i went to school with them. >> reporter: investigators also spoke with his friend, rusty mongold, apparently about a facebook post that appeared to threaten the youngest murder victim, 16-year-old christopher rhoden jr. cbs news has confirmed mongolfs
interviewed by investigators. in a separate facebook post, mongold said he went to the sheriff's office to clear himself. among the eight victims shot in the head was 37-year-old dana rhoden. this is her father leonardm manley. >> whoever died knowed the family because there were two dogs there that would eat you up. i ain't going to say no more. >> reporter: the local sheriff believes there may be more than one killer. he's been saying that since the g bodies were found. as to why, he said quite simply because there are four different crime scenes and i'm not convinced one person could have done it and gotten away on their own. charlie? >> david, thanks. three people on board a small plane have significant burns this morning after their aircraft slammed into a florida neighborhood. witnesses said the crash shook their homes. it happened yesterday in pompano
beach, florida, more than 30 miles north of miami. chris van cleave shows us the quick response of neighbors. >> reporter: the federal aviation administration said the pilot was practicing takeoffs and landings at the nearby pompano beach air park when the plane went down into this neighborhood monday afternoon. >> it came straight down. after that, it was just a huge implosion. >> we received multiple calls. the house is on fire as well. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: these men used garden hoses to battle back the flames before firefighters arrived. >> the guy's houses is freaking billowing smoke everywhere. it was crazy. >> reporter: witnesses said two victims managed to crawl from the wreckage. >> they were getting out, and we were just -- i was just holding the tail of the plane so it wouldn't roll over. >> reporter: two men and a woman were on board the multiengine plane. fire officials said the victims all had severe burns, over 30%
to 40% of their bodies. >> i think there's some very lung i can people in pompano. >> reporter: the chief said the man inside his home at the time of the impact is fine. >> when the plane hit his house, it actually bounced over one house and ended up in the yard of the next house. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," i'm chris van cleave. this is the time in the broadcast where we ask you to think about your last meal. where did it come from? how was it made? how did it get to you? ahead, anna warner puts the food 57. >> looking forward to that. >> me too. we'll be right back. type 2 diabs with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal.
so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. vo: victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing.
tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans.
companies are developing technology to show when they were picked, how nutritious it is, and whether it contains pesticid pesticides. ana western a ana werner takes us inside. >> reporter: we're inside a target warehouse in lake city, florida, where this food testers holds what looks like a gun, shooting lights into fruits and vegetables. the gun is actually something called a mass speck tromer it that scans the produce, identifying a sort of fingerprint of each item. greg shoemaker is target's entrepreneur and residence who came up with the idea. >> we want to be able to create that profile to see how does it differ, or is it different? every time he presses this button, we get essentially five pictures of that strawberry. >> reporter: this machine is a prototype of what the company hopes will one day be a scanner that will tell consumers everything they could want to know about their food. >> it's going to let us know and the customers know what they're buying, where it's from, and how

identify all foods around the globe. then hopefully equip consumers with their own handheld devices or smartphone apps to use to scan food. currently the grocery manufacturers association says roughly 10% of food purchases are adulterated or misidentified, including horse meat labeled as beef, fine wines diluted with water, or farmed salmon marked as wild. >> we know how much cotton and spandex are in our clothing products, but we dent know what's in our food, which is striking. >> reporter: marie brags is an assistant professor of global public health at nyu. she says this effort contrasts with what she often sees happening in the food industry. >> industry spends a lot of money and effort to prevent consumers from knowing what exactly is in their food. so it's in their benefit not to really know how long products have been on the shelf or what exactly is in them. >> reporter: but in the future, consumers may not have 20 depend on any one company for the information they need.
>> ultimately, target, for example, might be saying, listen, our produce is fresher and we can prove it to you. >> yeah, think about that. if you say, hey, our produce is fresher, and guess what, we're also going to arm you with the ability to fact check that. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," ana werner, lake city, florida. >> really interesting. >> they're on to something. >> i think so too. i had no idea apples could be stored for that long. >> me either. >> that explains why they're a little mealy sometimes. >> we blindly shop sometimes and don't really think about what we're putting in our mouths. somebody to think about. >> we're good shoppers. >> i know you are. and cookers. >> i didn't say cooking, but we're good shoppers. we are living in the golden age of invention. ahead, popular science reveals some of the year's best inventions from flying

>> i'm here, hi. >> making a lot of noise. >> not a graceful entry. >> it was not. >> but an athletic one. says he will not leave the convention as the republican nominee. the speaker trying to work out a federal budget. his most conservative colleagues can support. he's also creating an agenda he thinks his party can rally behind. we're glad to have speaker ryan back in the studio 57. welcome. good to see you here. >> thanks for having me. appreciate it. >> let's begin with what your agenda is and how you're trying to define the republican party. many people think it's a different vision than the likely nominee. >> well, i don't know that i would say that, other than we decided last year, before we had any idea who our nominee was going to be, that we needed to transition from being an opposition party to proposition party. if we don't like the direction the country is headed on a number of issues, we have an obligation, duty to offer an alternative. that's what we're in the middle
of doing now. we, congress. our committees, task forces working on five-point agenda. there's five areas we think aren't getting done in this divided government and we need to offer a plan to the people. how do you really get this economy going. get faster economic growth, better take home pay. everybody knows we're against obama care. i think we got that part down. what do we replace it with? what does patient health care look like. how do we solve health care and entitlement problems bringing us to debt down the road. how do you get people out of poverty, transition from welfare to work. we have work replacement programs, we need work encouraging programs. what's a foreign policy to keep us safe, article 1 of the constitution. >> is that what your party is talking about in the presidential debate? >> no. >> it's not. >> they are competing in a primary. here is the way i look at it. in wisconsin we speak in hockey
terms. right now the puck is in a primary on both sides. democrats fighting democrats, republicans fighting republicans. in the fall we're skating to where the puck is going to be. remember what wayne gretzky did. if you want to win, you have to skate where the puck is going to be. we believe the country has a clear choice. we have the opportunity to offer them that choice, which is how do we fix big problems today, how do we restore a confident america, what does that look like. >> mr. speaker, traditionally in presidential year, the presidential candidate sets the message. you're running a parallel policy shop. >> true. can i tell you why? >> yes. >> i learned in 2012 running with mitt romney, if you wait % until after the convention to all of a sudden get your act together and then produce an agenda in say august or september, it's too late. so my lesson from 2012 is we know who we are, we know what we believe and we have a good idea of the kind of solutions that
are necessary, so let's get on that right now, offer it early, spend all summer and all fall talking about it. come november 2016, everybody knows they have two choices to make as americans. we feel as the alternative party, not just opposition party, alternative party, we have an obligation to say if you don't like this direction, here is an alternative. we don't think we can do that if we wait until later in the summer. >> you released campaign style videos, which some people think looks like you might be running for president. in one of the messages you say republicans are focused on fixing the problems facing us, not just bemoaning how bad things are. >> right. >> do you think that's what's happening? donald trump is busy bemoaning how bad things are. >> i think that's what happens in presidential primaries. >> if you were running would you do that? >> i think we need to offer solutions to say here is what it takes to get our country back on track, confident america. this is primary politics.
look, as you know, i'm the chairman of the convention. i'm neutral on this thing. i don't comment day to dae-ho is doing what in the presidential campaign. what i care is that we offer people a choice. because if we win this election, after offering an agenda, then we have the mandate, obligation to put those reforms in place. we want to earn the support of the country to put these big reforms in place that we think are necessary to get the country back on track. >> if donald trump is the nominee, is he the person to get the country back on track? is he the true representative? >> whoever our nominee is going to be, it's going to be working with us to do this. by the way, i've spoken with donald trump and ted cruz and john kasich. >> what do they say? >> they are okay. they understand why we're doing this, what we're doing and comfortable with the direction we're headed. we're not worrying about something that is out of our control, who becomes the nominee. we're worrying about are we taking our principles, applying them to problems so we can offer people real solutions. >> back to norah's point who defines where republican party
ought to be. seems like you're saying to donald trump if he's the likely nominee or ted cruz, you're saying to him, better come where we are and change where you are in order to win because we have set out priorities for the country. >> i'm a jack kemp ronald reagan republican. we all have different styles and forms. >> what is donald trump? >> donald trump is a donald trump republican. >> how is that different? >> we'll find out. >> you know when you're a kid, your mom says if it walks like a talk, talks like a duck -- >> maybe tax policies. >> some say you're laying the groundwork if not here for 2020? you're really not? >> gayle, you know me. i had a choice. i could have run in 2016. i was doing well in the polls. i could have run 2012. janet and i chose not to do that. -of- young family. i think i can make a difference where i am. i'm home on weekends. we have basketball, volleyball. your kids only grow up once. we made our decision and i'm
very comfortable with that decision. that doesn't mean we in congress don't have a solution here. that doesn't mean we can't offer ideas. that doesn't mean we couldn't say to the country, we are giving you a compelling vision for alternative path because the one we're on isn't working. >> can i ask you some specific questions on news of the day, specifically one of your predecessors denny hastert going to be sentenced tomorrow for paying hush money. do you think he should go to prison? >> it's heart wrenching. i don't know the details of exactly what happened. i had his portrait removed from the capital because that is not befitting a former speaker or standards we hold for ourselves. >> no comment? >> i don't know the particulars. i don't want to get into something i don't know? >> about. >> what about laws of north carolina, using the bathroom. donald trump says yes for transgender. ted cruz says maybe not. >> the way we look at issues,
this is what our local governments and state governments should litigate. i think this is going to be churning in society, in our culture. i think through consensus in our communities we'll come to answer. i try not to, as a federal officials, insert our selves into administering or arbitrating these difficult issues that are moving through society. i don't get into what should north carolina do or wisconsin do, or what should madison, wisconsin or charlotte. >> manuel miranda inserted you in pop culture. >> on a different subject. >> i was like what does that have to do with north carolina. oh, yeah. >> hamilton guy. >> just went -- >> the hard part convincing congress what matters so their heart is in the fight for relief, not a bailout. relief. a belief you can pass legislation to ease our grief.

landing, put their fiscal house in order and have tools they need, which they need in law, to be able to restructure this paralyzing debt they have. that's something we're working on. it's going to be bipartisan, oversight board with restructuring boards and make them balance their budget. >> speaker ryan, happy to have you here. >> happy with "game of thrones," yes or no so far. >> yeah, a great show. >> norah likes it, too. when we come back, more with charlie's interview with president obama. he was in germany. >> good to see you. >> someone told me this was a trip about three of the ladies, first lady, queen and chancellor. >> it is a pretty powerful combination. i've enjoyed spending time with all of them. >> great company. i like that. president talks about affinity , in san francisco, good

armed conflict in the region led to the sharp decline. "the oregonion" reports on millennials as becoming the largest growing population in the u.s. they're defined as anyone 18 to 34 years old last year. there are nearly 75.5 million living millennials. they're everywhere, those millennials. and here's a story i like. cbssports.com reports on tiger woods playing golf again. he hit the ceremonial tee shot monday at blue jack national golf club in texas, which he helped design. he's not competed since august, as he recovers from back surgery. he's not set a date for when he will play again. it's reported he's registered for the u.s. open in june. we hope so. >> yeah, we hope so. "newsweek" reports on a warning about baby rice cereal. infants who ate ice cereal had higher urinary inorganic arsenic

"usa today" shows how four marines staged a picture-perfect reunion. they posted on a beach 50 years ago. they reunited last saturday to re-create the picture down to the last detail. they had not all been together since shipping out to vietnam. one of them told cbs news the experience has been surreal. >> they look great. they look terrific. >> they look really good. >> i love that. and "the new york times" also reports on new research showing how job losses from trade deals are increasing our political polarization. voters who live in areas hit hard by cheap overseas labor are more likely to move far right or far left. researchers say anger over globalizati globalization erodes support for moderates in both parties. speaking of globalization,
president obama admitted that international trade deals have hurt some american workers. still, he hopes an agreement with europe will be finalized before he leaves office. but the transatlantic trade and investment partnership faces critics here and abroad. we spoke monday in zbgermany, where the president tried to rally support. >> not every trade agreement in the past has been good for workers. there has been offshoring, seeking primarily low wages or low environmental standards, and companies can profit and sell back those goods irrespective of what that's done to the communities that they've left. so there are legitimate concerns about how globalization has proceeded. my argument, and i think this is hard to dispute, is that the only way to change this system is to engage it, not to withdraw from it. part of our job is not to
dismiss concerned about globalization. they are real and they are legitimate. it is to argue how do we make globalization, which is not going to be reversed any time soon, work for ordinary people. how do we make sure it's working for communities all across america or here in europe, and that is something i'm convinced we can do, but we've got to get the facts out. >> we're in germany. your favorite, as you have said, your favorite global leader who's been with you longest. what is it about you and angela merkel? and what is it about her that makes you believe that she represents the kind of leadership you need in europe? >> i think that i have an affinity for her, and i like to think she has an affinity for me, because we're both pretty rational. we both try to analyze a problem and solve it based on facts and
reason and common sense. you know, she believes in free markets. she believes in liberalism. she believes in democracy. she believes in a free press. she believes in pluralism. >> and she's willing to make moral decisions when it may not be in her political interest. >> that's exactly right. she's a good politician, otherwise she wouldn't be here that long, but if you look at what she's doing right now with respect to the refugee crisis, she's making an argument to the german people that, look, we're prospering now because people invested in us in a marshal plan. >> how are you coming together on dealing with migration and refugees? >> what i've said to them is this is not just a european problem, this is our problem too. for two reasons. one is that if you have a flood of refugees and it's disorderly,
then, you know, these are folks who potentially, if not handled properly, could end up being an alienated population inside europe that is not assimilated, is not integrated and will be resentful. that could have an impact in terms of their willingness to engage us and help us on things like terrorism. more importantly, more strategically, is the strain it's putting on yaurp inting on politics. the way it advances far-right nationalism, the degree to which it is encouraging a breakup of european unity that in some cases is being exploited by somebody like a mr. putin, who says, forget about europe, look at -- sort of reasserting the nationalist greatness and
anti-muslim sentiments. >> his goal is to divide europe. >> well, you know, i think that mr. putin has generally viewed nato, eu, transatlantic unity as a threat to russian power. i think he's mistaken about that. i've indicated to him that, in fact, a strong, unified europe working with a strong outward-looking russia that is defining its greatness not on the basis of military but rather on the basis of its ability to harness the talents of its people for economic good, then that's the right recipe. so far, he has not been entirely persuaded. >> quick point with respect to merkel. you know, she wins and she wins. some reporters said to him, would you rather that system, rather than being term limited
to two terms, he said actually, no, i think it's healthy for us that you have a term to have fresh feet coming in all the time. >> really great conversation with the president. >> i think rational. being rational is a good quality in a leader and just in people in general. >> they really do click. >> you can see that. mutual admiration on both sides. >> we're going to get to see more of your interview, right? >> yes, tonight on my pbs program. >> only on "cbs this morning," a spirited revolution. >> i'm ben tracy in charleston, south carolina. one of these rums was aged for 15 years, the other for six days. it's pretty hard to tell the difference. we'll show you how technology could rapidly change the spirits industry and your next cocktail, coming up on "cbs,,
well, it's still early in the day across the country. you know the old saying, it's 5:00 somewhere. fans of aged alcohol may want to celebrate a big disruption in the spirits industry. bottles of older scotch bourbon or rum can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. but only on "cbs this morning" ben tracy shows us how one man is changing all that with an invention he claims can produce the equivalent of a 20-year-old spirit inle less than a week.
>> reporter: charleston, south carolina, is a town that likes its carriages horse drawn, its streets cobblestoned, and its rum barrel aged. >> so this is an example of a rum that we're making up right now. >> reporter: so when alex burns recently opened the rational spirits distillery here, his business plan seemed a little, well, irrational. make rum that tastes old but without any barrels. there's not a single barrel in this place. >> correct. >> the reason no barrels is because you have this. >> this machine, this is our science fair project. >> reporter: he's talking about this reactor, which looks like something you might find in a biotech lab, not a rum factory. >> i came across this article that says guy claims he can create 20-year-old rum in six days. i thought to myself, wow, that would solve a lot of problems. let me check it out.
>> reporter: the guy making that claim is silicon valley sbep neu -- entrepreneur bryan davis. >> in six days you can make rum that tastes like it's 20 years old. >> yeah. >> sounds too good to be true. >> reporter: when alcohol is put into a barrel, molecules in the barrel's wood called polymers break down over time. this causes a series of chemical reactions that help give spirits such as rum, whiskey, and bourbon complex flavors like smoke, leather, and honey. >> the challenge was figuring out how to make those polymers degrade more rapidly. if we can put a man on the moon, right, we can figure out how to hack a piece of wood. it can't be that hard, right? >> reporter: the answer was enlightening. davis built this reactor where woodchips soaking in rum are blasted with high-intensity light, doing in six days what would take years in a barrel and
without any artificial ingredients. the end product matches the chemical composition of a decades' old spirit. >> is this kind of frankenstein booze? >> absolutely. yeah. >> you don't mind the phrase? >> no, i embrace that one. >> reporter: and it's not just rum. davis is also using his invention to improve rye whiskey, a spirit so popular with modern mixologists that there's now a serious shortage. bottles of aged rye routinely cost well over a thousand dollars. >> how disruptive do you think this technology will be? >> so the idea is that everybody can get a better bottle of booze at a better price tag. for the booze ageing business, this technology is a tectonic shift. everything just changed under their feet. they may not realize it yet, but it just did. >> reporter: traditionally, only large corporations could afford the millions of dollars in costs to age booze in barrels. now three smaller distilleries
are using davis' reactors to get similar results. he says 75 more want to do the same. when rational spirits became his first client, it named its rum santeria. which attracted leaders of the santeria religion. which uses rum in its rituals. >> let this rum make a mark. >> reporter: this trio of high priests recently blessed the operation. >> this is good. >> reporter: but it's also become popular with rum aficionados like chef paul yellen, who is about to open rum bar in charleston. it's the only rum less than three years old he will allow on his shelves. >> rums are very much like human beings. age and maturity are two different things. >> reporter: he says even if santeria doesn't quite taste 20 years old, it is certainly wise beyond its years.
>> yeah. >> good? >> immediately, very good. i find this very similar to about an eight-year-old rum. >> reporter: and in a business where waiting is the hardest part, that's a shortcut worth drinking to. for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, charleston, south carolina. >> too bad we don't have any of that on the set right now. we could raise a glass to you. >> she just won a big prize down there in washington, d.c. >> yes, we're excited about that. i don't even drink, but i'd raise up a glass. cheers to one of our own next on cbs. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
is it that you think you couldn't win or that you didn't want to run? >> couldn't win. i'll be very blunt. if i thought we could have put together the campaign that our supporters deserved and our contributors deserved, i would have gone ahead and done it. >> this morning, we celebrate our very own norah o'donnell, who's being honored for that revealing conversation with vice president joe biden and his wife jill. keep the applause going. her interview earned the merriman smith award. the judges called it insightful, regarding the vice president's announcement he would not run. >> that's high praise. >> very high praise. the award will be given out dinner. >> the last of president obama's term. what was so great, we remember when you got it, norah. it was like three days after he decided. listen to this, charlie. there's an official press release. please take a moment to
