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, gayle. no fooling people here. they believe what they saw last night around 6:20 p.m. was, in fact, a tornado. no confirmation yet this morning. people who live in this home left a few weeks ago and wanted to sell it but look what happened here. the big tree uprooted and tore concrete and this fell on the neighbor's house on this side to my right. this tree fell onto the neighbor's second story, the garage area damaged. the neighbor inside the home and he and his girlfriend took cover underneath the bed. it was over in less than a minute. >> it's coming this way.
7:04 am

7:06 am
week, at least from the perspective of delegate could be as bad. 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 won't get the data and tools of the rnc and run to be our nominee and tell me they are not going support the party. >> reporter: trump also continued lobbying to be the nominee. even if he doesn't win a
7:07 am
majority of delegates. >> if we're millions of votes ahead of everyone else and hundreds of delegates ahead of everyone else, i really think who has that kind of an advantage should get it. >> reporter: in the face of trump's high historic unfavor ability 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 -- 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 loyalist, 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? i want to protect my family. >> trump is still dealing with the fall jaw of saying if abortion were made illegal,
7:08 am
people should be punished for obtaining one. trump said to msnbc quote, cut out the full quote convoluted discussion. the network responded i quote no part of the exchange between trump and chris matthews was edit out. >> thank you, major. 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. >> reporter: when hillary clinton announced she was running for president last april, she probably never thought she would still be engaged in a primary fight against bernie sanders nearly a year later. it appears some of those frustration are now boiling over.
7:09 am
>> reporter: 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. bernie 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. >> reporter: clinton responded to the protests. >> they don't want to hear the contrast between my experience, my plans, my vision, what i know i can get done and what my opponent is promising.
7:10 am
>> i am very proud that i was born here in new york city. >> reporter: 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! >> reporter: 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 he spent some time shooting into the audience. >> the folk hero. thanks, julianna. "face the nation" moderator john dickerson will interview trump today for sunday's
7:11 am
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 suggested that privately and you saw in that moment she popped. i mean, you know, people said she needed to show off awe then 'tis 'tis authenticity and that was a faceful of authenticity. bernie sanders is saying she gets money from these groups and she is sick of it and what we saw happen there. >> is his campaign strengthening here in new york? >> it is strengthening, but it is the question -- 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 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
7:12 am
states he is not supposed to win and new york would be a good one. >> we talked about the meetings donald trump had yesterday. it's a question of who needs the other more when you get to that 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 so 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 there is not enough delegates at the defense will there a fight. 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 he is walking into a buzz saw on tuesday. what will that mean for his
7:13 am
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. >> see you on sunday on "face the nation." watch john's interview with donald trump sunday on "face the nation." he will speak with reince priebus, the rnc chair. next hour, senator bernie sanders will be here in studio 57 to talk about the things we have been talking about. that is ahead 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. jeff pegues is in richmond, the scene of the shooting. >> reporter: good morning. investigators have been going over the crime scene here overnight and interviewing witnesses and looking at
7:14 am
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 b bus terminal armed with a gun in his waistband and eventually shooting and killing a trooper. 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 fire. >> reporter: dermyer, a 37-year-old former marine,
7:15 am
husband, and father of two, died from multiple gunshot wound. 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 thought no way that is gunshots but then 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 yesterday. about 70 people were pulled from the debris alive.
7:16 am

7:17 am
cup! >> reporter: fountain men had won that payout 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 leader in promoting the women's game and are proud of the long-standing commitment we have
7:18 am
made to building women's soccer. but last year, the federation spent more than $31 million on the men's team, just $10 million on the women. hampton dilginger represented many of the players over the dispute over artificial turf. he believes they have a strong case. >> it's the women's national team have shattered all of the record for viewership and putting more fans in the stand. i think a good argument the women's are subsidizing the men's team. >> reporter: because of its world cup victory, u.s. soccer expects the women's team to bring in $5 million in profit this year. the men's team will lose about a million. speaking of lawsuits. for the so-called friendly exhibition matches, the women earned nothing for a loss or tie, while the men's player earn a minimum of $5,000 per game, no matter what the outcome. >> is the argument against them? >> listen. they are going to figure this out over the course of the year as u.s. soccer federation works

>> impersonator. be on guard for april fool's jokes today. i got a good one already today. welcome back to "cbs this morning." this half hour, fox news anchor megyn kelly talks to charlie about the unrelenting personal jabs from donald trump. a first look at the interview that you'll see on cbs sunday morning. our elizabeth palmer is the first american journalist to enter palmyra. we will see what she found inside the famed syrian city just recaptured from isis and what happened to its ancient cultural treasures is ahead. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. the "chicago tribune" reports on a teachers strike that started moments ago and close school for 400,000 students. teachers want to draw attention to the contract talks and the need for more money for schools. the districts say it will not discipline those who take part infant strike.

stolen in palmyra. the ruins are shown here. isis stole treasures and made millions. elizabeth palmer is the first american journalist to enter palmyra and she is in homs. >> reporter: good morning. most of the past year, palmyra has been a bit of a black hole because nobody could get close enough because of isis to see what was going on. well, now we know. the good news is that palmyra's ma jessic ruins are still standing. the bad news is that isis used them as a base for ten months and destroyed some of the greatest treasures. in fact, they intermediate themselves doi -- filmed themselves doing it and posted the pictures online. amongst the ancient amp theater. they helped the soldiers retake
7:34 am
palmyra and this is a little ceremony to thank them. when isis was forced out of palmyra, it was, of course a huge strategic loss of territory but it also inflicted big damage on their reputation. these masters of picking themselves up online are having a hard time explaining what amounts to a crushing defeat. isis may be gone. but they have left lasting scars. they blew the roman triumphal arch to pieces and the temple of bell. there is nothing left now but the central column. inside palmyra's museum of antiquities, air strike and artillery did some of this damage but isis did the rest. everything in this room has been completely wrecked. the curators did manage to smuggle out the hundreds of artifacts and get them to safety hours before isis rolled into town. mohammed alasa was one of them
7:35 am
but he couldn't convince his father, palmyra's father of antiquity to follow. he was decapitated by isis. what do you think now you're in the site and looking at the damage? on the one hand, sad, of course. but happy because we are back in control and i know my father would be too. the challenge now will be to hold this ancient site and protect it from a war that has only moved a short distance down the road. for most of the time we were in palmyra, we heard controlled explosions every few minutes. it was the syrian army detonating mines laid by isis. they say they have destroyed a thousand of them already and russian specialists are due to join them today. >> elizabeth palmer in syria, thanks. fox news anchor megyn kelly is a target of continuous attacks by donald trump this election season and she says it started in august after their

just somewhat, it would be so effective. he has already been so effective. he could be so much more effective. >> reporter: why did he start? does it all go back to a question in august of 2015? >> yes, it did. clearly. because trump and i really didn't have a relationship at all prior to that. >> reporter: because some think about this and they look at it and they say, why her? >> i think it's very clear to him that he cannot control the editorial on my show or from me in a debate -- >> reporter: just that? that's all it is? >> i wouldn't want to speculate beyond that. >> reporter: this conversation airs on sunday. if, on monday, donald trump says i want to come on your show, would you say you're welcome, come on, we have a spot for you? >> absolutely. >> i certainly would like to see that happen. >> i think before it's all over, he will come on her show. i really do. >> but monday is a perfect time. >> but monday is a perfect time. where were you all talking?
