7:00 am

7:01 am
frustration as he tries to call for help. >> send the ambulance now. >> the now 911 call raising big questions this morning. could help have come sooner? who let the dogs out the dog causing a big delay sprinting onto the field during a game running, leaping, even licking players. who let this dog out? who let the dogs out and good morning, america. happy wednesday. that dog just wanted to have a little fun. >> yeah, exactly. >> at least the dog was very nice. >> he was very nice. and he's fast too. robin is on assignment. we're coming off a big night in the race for the white house. >> that's right. on the democratic side hillary clinton winning all but one primary raising big questions about how much longer bernie sanders will stay in the race and then on the republican side, donald trump sweeping all five primaries with significant wins over ted cruz and john kasich. >> now, cruz is expected to make
7:02 am
of buzz that he could be naming carly fiorina as a running mate. donald trump's going to join us live to talk about that and his big wins but first abc tom llamas is at trump headquarters with all the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. trump now so confident he's calling on senator ted cruz and governor john kasich to get out of the race. he says they have no path. he's also unleashing on hillary clinton and just last night right here in trump tower i asked him about a possible running mate. >> i consider myself the presumptive nominee. >> reporter: fresh off a sweeping northeast victory, five for five, donald trump predicting his victory streak will run through november. describing hillary clinton as a flawed candidate. >> well, i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going and, frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. >> reporter: but if trump makes it to the general election, he likely will be dealing with more
7:03 am
a judge ruling the new york attorney general's fraud case against trump university will be heard before a jury. >> are you worried at all that you could possibly be running for president in november and also standing trial for trump university? >> no, that's a civil case. very simple. i'm going to win that case very easily. >> reporter: senator ted cruz betting big on indiana next week hoping to capitalize on trump's troubles and against the billion fair's values. >> you know, donald trump loves to style himself an outsider and, listen, when it comes to human decency, when it comes to politeness, when it comes to respect, he's right. >> reporter: cruz maintaining indiana is not a make or break state. the campaign insisting they're going all the way to the convention and with a running mate. >> senator cruz announced he's come up with a short list of potential running mates and started the vetting process. >> he's wasting his time, tom. listen, running mate. >> reporter: would governor christie be on your list.
7:04 am
i think chris christie is fantastic. thank you. >> reporter: and we have been seeing more of governor christie here at trump tower so we'll have to wait and see. another moment from last night going viral. we mentioned senator ted cruz in indiana. he's been comparing his campaign to that fictional basketball team from the movie "hoosiers" which takes place in indiana. last night he tried to make a point and tried to show symbolism and had his body man measure the hoop at a stadium, the problem is he didn't refer to it as a basketball hoop, he referred to it as a very formal basketball ring, social media exploding ripping him for calling it a basketball ring and the more or less formal hoop. >> tom llamas, thanks so much. to the democratic side and hillary clinton getting closer to clinching that nomination winning four of five primaries overnight. abc's cecilia vega has the very
7:05 am
race now stands. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. four more tates s states in her corner. if her victory speech overnight is any indication she is gearing up for a showdown with donald trump. eye of the tiger >> reporter: hillary clinton overnight in the land of "rock can" taken taking the stage to his song. >> thank you, pennsylvania. [ cheers and applause ] what a great night. >> reporter: delivering bernie sanders a near knockout. >> whether you support senator sanders or you support me, there's much more that unites us than divides us. >> reporter: clinton throwing punches across the aisle too. >> we're going to imagine a tomorrow where hard work is honored, families are supported and where love trumps hate. >> reporter: setting her sights
7:06 am
>> so, my friends, if you are a democrat, an independent or a thoughtful republican, you know their approach is not going to build an america where we increase opportunity or decrease inequality. >> reporter: and playing all the cards. >> mr. trump accused me of playing the, quote, woman card. [ booing ] >> well, if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in. >> reporter: those four big wins put clinton closer to locking in the nomination once and for all while sanders is single rhode island victory still leaves him lagging in delegates but he is going down swinging. >> this campaign is not just about electing a president, it is about transforming our nation. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: and vowing to stay
7:07 am
>> with your help we're going to win here in west virginia. >> reporter: not just west virginia, sanders says that they will stay in this fight through california's primary in june but we are seeing a tale of two very different campaigns played out right now. clinton's advisers say they are winding down their primary fight and ready for a general election. >> and jon karl is going to show us the delegate map that shows why that is the case. to him right now. jon, starting with the democrats almost impossible now for bernie sanders to catch up to hillary clinton. >> it sure is, george. hillary clinton had a big night, four out of five states but, of course, it's all about delegates. hillary clinton won 194 delegates last night, bernie sanders, 129. that means she is getting very close to where she needs to be to win, in fact, sanders would need to get 91% of the remaining delegates to clinch. >> and how about the republicans, donald trump? >> big, huge night for donald trump.
7:08 am
that's more than that. pennsylvania 54 ran under their own names. our team is interviewing them based on that. we project donald trump won 131 delegates last night. that brings his total much closer to where he needs to be, the 1,237. in fact, he needs to get about 47% of those remaining to clinch. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. let's talk to donald trump right now. he joins us by phone. mr. trump congratulations on the win. it looks like you won every county, every congressional district. the exit polls show 25% of the party say they won't vote for you in a general election. i know you believe you're the nominee right now. how do you win that 25% over. >> i think they will come over, george, as soon as they get in line, right now they're backing other candidates and they're backing somebody he, but they're going to come over. i've watched it all my life. i mean, they are angry, they're confused and they don't know how this is all happening and then all of a sudden it becomes love.
7:09 am
love. i've seen it many, many times politically and in other parts of life and that's the way it is. >> you are getting a lot of buzz about those comments you made about hillary clinton. if hillary were a man i don't think she'd get 5% of the vote. what did you mean by that? it struck a lot of your critics as sexist. >> it's not sexist. it's true. just very, very true statement. if she were a man she'd get 5%. >> 600,000 votes. she's gotten 12 million votes. >> she is a flawed candidate. she is a candidate that, frankly, is i think -- she's not going to do very well in the election and i look forward to showing that and, frankly, you just look at her votes. you look at her -- even bernie sanders said she has bad judgment. i mean, bernie sanders himself said she has bad judgment. that's a big statement to make. that's a statement worse than many of the statements i've made against people i'm running against. >> you heard her response. she said she wants to be dealt in on that woman card charge and said she wants -- she's for
7:10 am
women and paid family leave. where you stand on hose. >> women don't like hillary and i did well with the women. the women gave me great marks and a great percentage but women do not like hillary clinton. that's been a known fact for a long time and she's going out there playing the women's card. in fact, she gets up and says, i'm a woman,s that that's what separates me so she has every right to be attacked on that front. she gets up and all she's saying is i'm a woman, i'm a woman and she didn't play that card too much with obama, probably made a mistake not doing it but she's playing it against us. >> you know that most polls show she does better in a national election with women than you do. >> that's okay. i mean, i haven't started on her yet. you know, polls showed that jeb bush did better than me and he failed an polls showed all these people i played, that i did, that i won against, 17 groups, that many of them did better than me and by the end i was
7:11 am
left the race one by one. now i have hillary is going to be the next one and i look forward to taking her on. i think she'll be much easier than many of the governors and snoorts i knocked out. >> ted cruz still fighting even though you believe you're the nominee and you've heard that buzz he could be naming carly fiorina as his running mate as early as today. does that worry you at all. >> i think it would be a bad choice. i mean carly did not resonate. not because she's a woman, but carly did not resonate at all with people. she had one good -- one good debate, not against me, she had the debate on the other stage, if you'll remember, remember we had so many -- we had so many candidates ahead of us on that stage but she had the one good debate she went up then she dropped like a rock and never resonated with the people so i mean carly is not going to do the trick. i like carly, nice person but she never resonated. she didn't do well. she went -- she was very low in the polls and by the end she was
7:12 am
you wants to bring carly back, that's okay. he's too early to do it and, frankly, he's wasting his time because he won't be the nominee. i have millions of votes more than him. 3 million more. i have millions of votes more than him. i have hundreds of delegates more than him. he came in third in four of the races last night. he didn't come in second. he came in third. it's over for ted. now, what are you going to did? he goes around on the weekends and buys up all the second round delegates. he buys them, you know, takes them out for hamburgers, takes them out for cake. he takes them out to hotel rooms. he takes them sightseeing. >> i have to get one more question in. let me get one more. you're giving a major -- in i'm not focused on that. >> you're giving a major foreign policy speech today. how do you convince people they can trust you with the nuclear codes? >> well, because i'm probably the last on the trigger. you know i was against the war in iraq. other people were for it. hillary clinton was for it. >> you were for it though before
7:13 am
>> no, i wasn't. i was never for it. i was against it. before it ever started i was against it. and i was against it from before 2004. i was against the war in iraq. and i was against it for years and bush used to hate me for being so against it and they sent people to the white house to try and convince me and all i'd say is it destabilized -- it will destabilize the middle east and iran will take over the middle east and that's exactly what happened and we have isis to top so they made a horrible decision, but hillary clinton voted for it and by the way, they did not knock down the world trade center, okay, just so we get that straight. iraq did not knock down the world trade center which is in theory why we went in there and went after them. >> donald trump, thank you for joining us this morning. >> okay, george. thank you very much. >> and from politics, george, to our other big story, that severe continuing this morning. take a look at the lightning strikes in houston, just moments ago, and then massive storms in the heartland unleashing blinding rain, hail.

where these storms are headed. >> it's happening at this hour in parts of texas and louisiana. that same cold front that dropped all the severe weather as of yesterday blowing through from shreveport to lake charles already this morning through houston, reports close to 60 miles per hour of damaging wind and that's going to be the issue today.

8:07 am
and buy pure caffeine, system so strong it is so hard to measure how much you should take. >> you have a sense right here. >> if you look at one cup of coffee that has 00 milligrams of caffeine. if you take one teaspoon of the powder it's the amount of caffeine in 28 cups of coffee and that can be really dangerous. one teaspoon of in that can cause nausea, vomiting, anxiety, heart palpitations. a tablespoon, chest pain, irregular heartbeats, seizure and in some cases death. you're supposed to take 1/16 of a teaspoon and no kitchen can even measure that. >> no way to measure it. why is this on the market. >> it has to do with how supments are regulated. they don't have to show they're safe or effective to go on the market. the fda can only take action after people are harmed and in the fall they sent letters to five companies and those companies stopped selling the product but they have to go after each company and calling on congress to get rid of it or for fda to change the regulation.

8:15 am

8:16 am
get pregnant but cover all costs associated with it and some are returning to crowdfunding and seeing huge success. abc's rebecca jarvis is here with more on that story. good morning, rebecca. >> good morning. it's pretty incredible. according to the cdc one in eight couples are facing infertility but a single cycle of ivf can cost as much as $15,000 and some insurance companies do not cover it and many are getting creative. after four years of disappointment, this couple's best chance of growing their family was in vitro fertilization. >> looking at $17,000 total all out of pocket. >> reporter: required to pay the full amount up front ben a full time student and kate an executive assistant were going to be stretched thin. so they turned to a growing option for many looking for help paying for medical costs. crowdfunding. >> we're hoping to do ivf. >> reporter: they posted a
8:17 am
the word to friends and family. >> i felt if we didn't kind of ask others for help that we would not have the opportunity to have kids. >> reporter: youcaring.com which says 50% of its fund-raising campaigns are dedicated to medical needs has seen the number of fertility related campaigns grow steadily. gofundme.com says at least 1,700 ivf campaigns have raised over $3 million so far. but no matter how you're planning to pay experts say advancements in science have helped the bottom line. >> far less spending is done today in certain cases than was done years ago because we can achieve pregnancy with fewer cycles. >> reporter: in just three months kate and ben raised $4,100 from 33 people. mostly friends and family. at 38 kate says it allowed them to put operation baby into action quickly and keep them from maxing out their credit cards.
8:18 am
they're having twins. and the fund-raising campaign provided something else. >> it motivated us to keep going and to realize people actually supported us and trusted us to have these children. >> congratulations to ben and kate and rebecca and abc news chief women's health correspondent dr. jen ashton are here with more. we know it's expensive. most insurance companies do not cover all of the costs so how do the costs break down? why does it cost $15,000. >> let's itemize the bill. relative costs so they can vary a little. but first the in vitro fertilization drugs cost about $5,000 then you go through stimulation where we're injecting more drugs and monitoring with ultrasounds, that's about 2,500. the retrieval procedure done in an operating room with anesthesia about 2,000. the lab fees about 4500 and then the embryo transfer another grand.
8:19 am
per cycle and many women, many couples need multiple cycles. >> i foe we see the numbers broken down but like so many medical procedures why are they so expensive. >> listen, that's the question. in this country all medical care is expensive. we know that in other parts of the world. this is often covered by insurance but we have to remember this is a subspecialty of og/gyn. not that many infertility doctors and when you go into the lab there are not that many e embryolojists. that adds up. for comparison if you have a hip surgery and paid out of pocket you could pay 35 to 55,000 for that. >> rebecca, are there alternatives for couples? >> i think this is what is so important for couples to know about. there are resources beyond just crowdfunding. those infertility treatments, you should talk to your doctor, doctors like dr. jennifer ashton, there are provider discounts. if you're in the military, if you're a teacher or firefighter,
8:20 am
pharmaceutical companies even offer discounts for some of their treepts and refunds and there are grant programs out there for those who are really in need who want to have a child. >> i did not that. >> baby quest is one of the programs. a phenomenal program. >> that's really interesting. dr. ashton how does ivf compare to other methods of trying to become pregnant? that's important. it's all under the category of assisted reproduction so take the numbers we just went through and then let's say if you need to use a donor egg, that will tack on $20,000 bringing you to about $35,000 per cycle. if you need to have a uterine surrogate which is legal in this country add another 65,000. that could bring you up to $100,000 per cycle per pregnancy, per baby, that adds up. >> for those of us who have kids you know the costs don't end at pregnancy. >> exactly. they only go up from there. unfortunately, and right now raising a child until the age of 18 costs about $250,000. that's before college, before
8:21 am
>> before all those things so it's important to thing about the fact as you're spending for pregnancy, think about what happens after pregnancy. how you want to raise your child. >> a lifetime of expends that doesn't end at 18. thank you so much. ginger. >> yes, i'm looking forward to it. the brand-new information this morning and brand-new pictures out of houston, texas, all that severe weather blowing through at this hour you can see that

8:24 am
public or sells itself, some employees could tan to cash in anywhere from $150,000 to $1 million worth of stock. >> wow. >> good for him. >> the ceo says he aprils to share success with his entire family. >> right now this is a private company so he's giving his shares back. >> so incredible. >> his own money away. he knows that that is going to create a wonderful workplace filled with trust, hard work, they're all in it together. >> america has this obsession with greek yogurt. i feel it's because of chobani. i love that yogurt. >> makes me want to buy chobani to know there's someone doing the right thing. >> congrats on that. it's a happy "pop news" day. you can call -- we found the sweetest gig in the world. lisa schroeder, you are my idol. so who can lisa? taster. the candy company, snicker,

>> that's how you tone the arms and get a tricep in. that's my workout tip. >> working out to kick some booty. you'll show us moves in the octagon. i'm giving you full permission. >> when i saw that clip, i think i might have my work cut out for me? show me what you got. >> this is a rear choke. you know how to tap, right? >> i know how to tap if i'm passing out. ready? >> oh, my god. >> that was good. all right. >> you know what's amazing. she didn't understand what tap meant. she thought i was patting her on the back instead of saying let go. >> that happened. >> you're up, what should i expect. >> i get to do one of these to you. you know, as much as i will like to put you in that, my go to move is to do the clench. >> a thai clench, throw some knee in the face, a little elbow.
8:35 am
>> when mark ballas is acting up in rehearsal -- >> i do that a lot. i do that a lot. >> we have so much more with these ladies coming up and the rest of our ufc superstars coming up. but first let's go outside to another "dancing with the stars" star, ginger. >> hey. i know that gal paige, yeah, we're on the same team for team dance this week. this is danielle and nicholas from long island.
8:36 am
really cold tonight? >> all that weather brought you by lyrica. the abc hit comedy "the goldbergs" is celebrating its three seasons with a special look back episode tonight. full of never before seen extras and hilarious bloopers so take a sneak peek. >> let me help. you know, when i was your age i was -- messing around. [ bleep ]. >> making fun of adam for his lazy eye and his inability -- blah, blah, blah, blah. blah, blah, blah. >> love a good blooper real. watch it tonight at 8:30, 7:30 central right here on abc. >> thank you. now to kevin spacey and michael shannon, the two star as president nixon and elvis presley in "elvis & nixon" taking us inside their 1970 meeting. this shot of them is the most requested photo in the national archives and i recently got to
8:37 am
here's a look at their new movie. >> communists and the left wingers are clinging to one another because they're trying to destroy us, elvis. >> i know, sir. good honest americans. they hate us. >> they don't hate us, elvis. they hate what we stand for. >> and so happy to have kevin spacey and michael shannon with us this morning. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having us. >> had is the untold story of that famous photo. what happened between elvis and nixon. >> one 69 things that drew me to the script is that even though this is based on a real he vent the meeting between them is completely mysterious. there's no document of it. there's no recording of it so a real event and completely imagined event. >> it had to have been a huge undertaking. i know you're both incredible arcs but to play such larger than life real people. >> yeah, i think both michael and really wanted to approach it in a way that it wasn't like we were going to do impressions of
8:38 am
to go is just sort of find an essence of what was sort of nixonian and listened to a lot of tapes so i could hear what he was like in private more than what he was like in public. >> what were your impressions. >> that he swore like a bat out of hell. >> michael, we know all about the elvis impersonators. what did you learn about him. >> the thing i was most surprised about was his deeply spiritual nature. you know, i think a lot of types with the impersonations and whatnot it leads you to a very superficial view of elvis but he was actually a very deep thinker and he read a lot of books that i was surprised to find out he was into. >> what was it like when the two of you first saw each other in costume? >> it was -- yeah, it was pretty remarkable. i mean we had to start with the oval office scene. >> did you laugh at all. >> we both didn't want to disrespect these characters and to play them with a certain seriousness but there were a couple of times when we were
8:39 am
something that was so brilliantly elvis-like and i didn't expect it at all that i completely lost it and i think there was a couple of types where i did something that was very nixonlike and he lost it so there were a couple of times where we definitely lost it but tried hard to keep a straight face. >> kevin, here we are in the oval office again. it seems like you can't get away from playing presidents. what's more fun, playing an actual president or this made up president or do you ever slip? i would be afraid i slipped into that southern drzal. >> what's interesting, the set we used in our film was the west wing oval office and the set we used in "house of cards" is a completely new oval office we built so actually not the same room and i hope that when people see me in an oval office set in this movie they won't think of frank underwood and i hope when they see me as frank underwood they won't think of nixon. >> well, it's an incredible film. thank you both for stopping by. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much. you bet.
8:40 am
theaters now. look at this, a ufc sandwich. coming up next, women and men of the ufc sharing some of their biggest secrets. it's all coming up next, stay with us. sir, this alien life form is growing at an alarming rate. growing fast, you say? we can't contain it any long... oh! you know, that reminds me of how geico's been the fastest-growing auto insurer for over 10 years straight.

8:42 am
8:43 am
this is my fight song >> welcome back to the ufc on "gma." you can see ufc announcer bruce buffer handing out cupcakes and that's because miesha "cupcake" tate is one of the ufc superstars with us. we're about to find out why one of the toughest women in the ring goes by cupcake along with some other ufc secrets but first let me introduce you to everyone. we've met the ladies. miesha state and paige vanzant. we have dana white, hall of fame fighter chuck liddell and jon jones, daniel cormier and frankie edgar. i'll tart with you, dana, since you are the boss, first of all. you have a big announcement and what is that announcement? >> we do, ufc 200 has been interesting to say the least. you know, putting this thing together. there's been some crazy things that have gone on, ups and downs, jon jones just fought on saturday night and won his fight
8:44 am
he's been out for 15 months. and now he's back. and he wants his ufc light heavyweight title back so the pain event will be daniel cormier versus jon jones. [ cheers and applause ] >> there is not a ufc fan in the world who is more excited than i am. i am a big fan. i watched you fight last month and 15 months off you were given interim light heavyweight title. in order to get the permanent title you have to be beat daniel who you were supposed to fight but who is injured so how do you feel about that? do you think this is the perfect matchup for you now. >> yeah, absolutely. me and my team, we've been working extensively and have a great strategy to beat daniel cormier. i got thrown a last-minute change of opponent. felt like i did great with it given the circumstances and ready to get back to my original plan which is to dominate daniel
8:45 am
well, daniel, i know you two have a loving relationship. very contentious if you didn't know but, daniel, how did you feel? with the injury, first of all, second, how do you think you'll fare in the fight the second time around with jon. >> i'm hire, obviously, so the doctor's appointment went eel. i'm happy. i'm as happy as anybody could be to be in this situation. i've been wanting to fight jon for a long time after he beat me last january and i feel great. i mean, i made a lot of improvement in the last training camp and i don't think in july that it should be a problem. >> you know, we're looking forward to this. this is as nice as you've been to each other as long as i can remember. >> it's early. >> it's early in the morning for you guys and i want to talk to you, paige, and they call you -- i mean, you're on "dancing with the stars" now. >> yeah. >> i'm trying to -- how do you go from this fighter to this dancer all of a sudden? you're doing a great job by the way. >> thank you.
8:46 am
>> there self is. i get nervous before every fight and before every time i have to dance. you know it's not as much a second nature. obviously i have to remember like memorize the dance routine so it's a little harder. i've been having a lot of fun and hoping i can bring some more fans over to the ufc and fans over to mma that don't necessarily know what it is yet. >> you're definitely doing that. the guy that started it. chuck liddell, u.s. hall of famer and made the sport and give him credit for making it mainstream and on top of that being mainstream -- you were the first fighter on "dancing with the stars" so have you given paige any advice? >> you know, people ask if i gave her any advice. don't watch what i did. you know, that was the reason i got on "dancing with the stars" was to get -- get a different audience, see -- back then they thought we were neanderthals and we're kind of neanderthals but not completely. >> i'm not messing with you, miesha, why are you nicknamed cupcake? that's the last thing i would think a fighter would be nicknamed.
8:47 am
of it. early on i got underestimated. people thought, man she wears a dress and heels. no way she can be tough, cupcake. i thought it was funny after a while and started beating up people that didn't think i would beat them up. and gave myself the nickname cupcake. >> i'm not calling you that regardless of its being your nickname. frank di, do me a favor, keep jon and daniel away from each other. >> yeah. i'll do my best. >> that's why we set you there. thank you guys for coming. we're looking forward to ufc 200 july 9th. i'll make sure i'll be there. coming up the best ways to dress for any wedding from black-tie to the beach so stay right there.
