7:08 am
room, pick up a ballot and do something he's going to take great pleasure in, walk right into that booth and vote for donald trump. you know, when he announced his candidacy few thought he would make it this far and almost no one thought now he'd be a front-runner. on this election day, donald trump expects only one thing, loyalty. >> no new yorker can vote for ted cruz and no new yorker can vote for kasich. >> reporter: trump promising supporters a win in new york puts him on the path to a showdown in november against hillary clinton. >> we're going to win and we're going to beat crooked hillary so badly that your heads will spin. >> reporter: but still in the way, senator ted cruz. >> maryland is a battleground. >> reporter: he's moved on from new york where trump is expected to shut him out and slow down cruz's momentum. after the texas senator strategically rounded up delegates in states not holding primaries. i asked trump about cruz's
7:09 am
is he the real dealmaker right now behind the scenes. >> no, i'm leading by millions of votes and by 200 delegates. no, we're doing really well. >> reporter: part of trump's success in new york turning around cruz's attacks on new york values, trump invoking the response to 9/11 as real new york values. but overnight trump trying to make that point but mistakenly invoking a convenience store. >> and i watched our police and our firemen down at 7-eleven -- >> reporter: he later corrected himself but the 7-eleven flub going viral. all right, and now we've also understood as he's on the cusp of his biggest victory yet donald trump's campaign is hitting the reset button, new staffers are being brought in led by paul manafort and his field director has told abc news he is resigning. it's unclear if more changes are on the way. >> that could just be the beginning.
7:10 am
dowd right here. victory for donald trump here in new york, not in doubt but he needs close to a clean sweep. >> he's got to be careful not to be slurpee, i mean sloppy, in the course of this. no, he needs an 8 in front of his number and needs at least 80 something delegates in this state to go forward and still has as you know the possibility of clinching before july. i think really he can't get it by june 7th but he needs to start that process tonight with a large victory that as i say needs to have it be in the 80s on the number of delegates. >> jon karl, a good setup. next week in the northeast. after that the calendar gets tougher and struck by something mitt romney said yesterday repeating his call either ted cruz or john kasich has to get out of the race if you want to block trump. >> mitt romney is exactly wrong on this, by the way, because the only way to defeat trump is to keep him from getting 1,237 by the end of the process.
7:11 am
it's harder for trump to do that. if he gets a head-to-head match against him it will be getbigger. so trump needs kasich to get out of the race. >> on the democratic side you slowed that slip from hillary clinton. betrays a big confidence right now in the clinton camp. they want to pivot after tonight. >> you're already sort of starting to see her do that. her narrative has been trump, trump, trump but privately saying the margins will be much closer tonight than the polls show her going in so they're bracing for that. we did the math. if bernie sanders loses by ten points tonight he needs to win 80% of the remaining delegates to clinch the nomination. if he doesn't win tonight, the big question is what happens next? >> just real quickly, she doesn't need that because this is taking a toll on her overall favorability. >> when a candidate slips they are accidentally telling the truth. i think they're very frustrated, the campaign is, they thought
7:12 am
a victory for her to go forward. >> thank you all very much and hillary clinton joins us live thursday with our coffee with the candidates town hall to answer your questions. robin. now to that big headline overseas. rescuers in a race against time to find survivors after that devastating earthquake in ecuador killed hundreds. this drone footage showing the damage. abc's linzie janis is on the scene now for us. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we just arrived in this coastal town nearest to the quake's epi epicenter. police telling me the buildings behind me are hotels where they believe dozens of tourists are still trapped. they say it's been so difficult to get here, the search for survivors really only began a day ago. so far they found just one person alive. but they are hopeful there will be others. crews working through the night searching for survivors, very deep under the rubble of ecuador's 7.8 magnitude quake.

7:32 am
he became the poster child for family first but also the poster child for absurdity. now listen to him explain that absurd decision and why it was an easy one. when the chicago white sox asked adam laroche to stop bringing his son drake to the clubhouse he told them he'd rather walk away from the sport he loves and his $13 million salary. >> i haven't lost an ounce of sleep. i mean, i have zero regrets. >> reporter: laroche took his son to work with him pretty much every day for the past five seasons, a constant companion in the clubhouse, did chores for others and had a locker next to his dad's. have you ever heard from anyone who had an issue with drake being with you as much as he was? >> no, not that i can remember. >> reporter: but in early march laroche said he was approached by the team executive vice president kenny williams who initially asked had him to dial back drake's presence in the
7:33 am
to bring drake around at all. >> he just said, enough is enough. i don't want to see your son around here anymore. >> reporter: after that heated conversation when did retiring start swirling around in your mind? >> probably 20 minutes later. >> reporter: a few days later laroche announced his decision to retire sparking a public debate about kids in the workplace. >> i also applaud adam laroche. >> i don't care if you're a dad and work at a bank, every day is too much. >> reporter: and the logic of leaving so much money on the table. how much was money a factor when you were sitting down and making the decision? >> not a huge one. >> reporter: but, adam, 13 million is 13 million for six months of work. >> but i learned a long time ago no matter how much we have, it's never enough. >> is it fair to say you don't need the money. >> who doesn't need 13 million? >> apparently you. >> you know what i'm saying but i mean in the world, like it's -- i get it's an absurd amount of money.
7:34 am
at least where you stopped and thought to yourself what the hell was i thinking? >> i haven't yet but it's still fresh. >> reporter: as is often the case drake wasn't far from his dad's side even in the interview. what's the highlight going to the clubhouse every day? >> hanging out with the guys, you know. they're awesome. >> what was your role? what was your even job. >> i cleaned shoes most of the time. so i just did a little bit of everything. >> he was doing more work than i was. i had to play a game. he had to work. >> laroche calls drake his best tend and yes, he enjoyed spending time with him but a clubhouse provided better life lessons than any school could. >> the privilege of having him there, he gets to grow up and hopefully learn from me and my screwups and good decisions. >> reporter: laroche said the dispute over his son wasn't the only reason for his retirement. he spent ten days under cover in the red light districts of
7:35 am
with a nonprofit organization to help victims of sex trafficking. he's been haunted by what he saw. >> i think having my own kid -- having two kids of my own especially a 12-year-old daughter, it's impossible not to picture, man, what if this is my daughter. >> baseball wasn't as important after that trip. >> it wasn't at all. >> reporter: laroche said he wants to continue that work in the future. for now he's enjoying some time with his family at peace with the decision to quit baseball. >> one of the things i probably thought the longest on was making sure that if i did this, that he would never feel like this was on his shoulders. i think he knows deep down that baseball was never like my life or my world or everything to me. you know, there's a lot more to life. >> all right, and hearing that people's -- hear the whole story and hearing it from him, and, george, maybe something you jumped out at you. the first thing he asked, is it okay if my son comes --
7:36 am
>> he had that agreement but it was a hand shake, wasn't in some contract, right? so maybe in practice once the white sox saw it, oh, didn't know it would be like this, this really is a lot of ways didn't have to happen. just a couple of people, grown men sit down and work it out. we probably didn't have to be here. >> but, you know, the thing is he's at peace with his decision. >> completely. >> very comfortable with it so more power to him. >> the whole interview, what's wrong with you, what's wrong with you? >> i love how he said, $13 million even for him, yeah, that's a lot of money. he gets it. >> that's coming from a rich guy already so 13 million, different thank me. >> family first at the end of the day. thank you, t.j. great job. i want to switch gears to a survivor of that recent massacre in michigan when an uber driver went on a deadly shooting spree, the victim's quick thinking saved lives and she is speaking out now. abc's alex perez has her story. >> reporter: she came face-to-face with the uber driver accused of a shooting

8:18 am
score that is registered. it doesn't matter what -- you could hold up a 1, 10, 50 it doesn't matter. >> so they thought they could change it but apparently they couldn't. did you have a favorite dance of the night, drew? >> yeah, i mean as much as i hate to admit it i agree with the judges, i think nyle's waltz was beautiful. i mean his lines were great. his footwork was great and the emotion that came through that dance and when you put on top of that the fact that he can't hear it just makes it that much more unbelievable. >> it's interesting to see many so of them thought it was almost an advantage he couldn't hear, felt everything with his body but how about ginger? >> i mean, honestly, i've been a fan of ginger's for awhile now but last night when she switched partners and mark is a very creative choreographer and fantastic dancer, to switch up and still come out with that charisma that dance was very fast, the footwork very complicated. she did a lift which i don't
8:19 am
i don't know. but, you know, i thought she did a fantastic job and the fact she has val as her regular partner, i see her going a long way in the competition. >> oh, we do, too and the judges were very kind. and applauding ginger last night, however, len and maks not so much with a lot of the other contestants. they were really tough last night. >> they were and it's funny because maks and len have always had this kind of -- this tension between the two of tem to see them agreeing so much was actually a little surreal. but, you know, i like to compare it to like a negativity sandwich. you got carrie ann and bruno on the ends and this negativity cream filling. >> sour filling. >> how do you handicap it going forward? >> well, i think wanya will rebound from this week. i think he'll be in the finals. i think nyle will make it to the finals and i think ginger will be in the finals, as well.
8:20 am
knows what's going to happen but i see those three making it there. >> all right, you won season two then came back to dance in the all-star season. what's your advice to the contest tabtss going forward? >> if i could lend any advice, it's to tune out everything else. just focus on what you can do on the dance floor and have fun. very easy to get caught up into winning or what the judges expect and just have fun because that comes through. i mean ginger's performance was a perfect example. she was spying, she was beaming the whole time and that makes you just love the performance that much more so to the contestants enjoy yourself, have a good time. don't pay attention to all the other nonsense. >> forget those judges. >> drew, you should become a dance whisperer. >> they don't matter anyway. it's america that matter. >> thank you so much. >> thank you, drew. that was great, of course, "dancing with the stars" monday night 8:00 eastern, 7:00 central right here on abc. now to robin.
