protesters who had poured into that event. >> those protesters were out in force. you can see one here burning a trump flag. others were busy hurling themselves onto the ground creating human chains and shouting anti-trump slogans. >> the trump campaign called off the event. trump saying he didn't want to see people hurt. his rivals are weighing in this morning. we do have team coverage on everything from the political implications to the ongoing security concerns and we do start with alex perez who is right there on the ground in chicago. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. good morning, dan. the rally here never actually started. the clash between trump supporters and trump protesters got very ugly very fast. >> all: we want trump. we want trump. >> reporter: overnight mayhem at this arena in chicago. thousands gathered to see presidential candidate donald trump. >> i don't care! >> tonight's rally will be postponed until another day. >> reporter: his supporters and protesters facing off in a series of heated and violent exchanges. >> donald trump is not welcome
in chicago and we're going to make that clear today. >> reporter: a protester later storming the empty podium shouting at people below before security forced him offstage. that same man later going head-to-head with a trump supporter. both men wrestling. throwing punches as onlookers tried to break up the fight. hr tried to break up the fight. >> i don't want anybody -- a brawl here. i don't want her beat up or him beat up. >> reporter: the melee spreading outside. this police officer struck by a flying bottle, one of two officers injured during the commotion. >> there's been a total of five arrests that were made this evening at the pavilion. >> reporter: on cnn donald trump citing safety concerns and denying his past remarks played a role. >> i don't take responsibility. nobody has been hurt at our rallies. i'm not a person that wants to see people hurt, and that's why i put out the statement before and said go home in peace. >> reporter: during the republican debate thursday, trump grilled about encouraging unruly behavior among his supporters.
>> i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell you. we're not allowed to punch back anymore. i love the old days, so if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you, seriously. >> reporter: and at this point, no word yet if or when trump plans to reschedule his rally here in chicago. dan, paula. >> all right, alex. and for more on this we want to bring in abc's chief white house correspondent jon karl and, jon, some startling images we just saw. you've been covering politics for a very long time. have you seen anything like this? >> reporter: paula, this reminds me of something i did not cover but i grew up watching and that's 1968 in chicago. the riots that took place around the democratic convention that actually spilled out for a time onto the convention floor but this is absolutely astounding but i have to say, it's also not entirely surprising. i've been to so many donald trump rallies where i have heard from the podium, you know, leading presidential candidates say things like you just heard
announced in alex perez's piece like how he'd like to slug a protester in the face and in the good old days they were taken out in stretchers. i heard those taunts aimed at, frankly, me and others in the media pen where they often require reporters to stay at donald trump rallies taunting members of the press saying these are awful people and then you hear, you know, people yelling at reporters as well. you know, that said, i've got to say at these trump rallies, thousands of people going, i don't think the vast majority of them want nothing of this. don't want any violence and there are protesters every day at donald trump rallies and most of the time, you know, they do their thing and escorted out and there's no incident but this has been building for a long time. >> so, jon, are you saying that trump actually bears some responsibility here and i guess on top of that question i'd ask, do you think he's going to face political damage here, nothing thus far seems to have damaged him politically but could this be the thing? >> reporter: yeah, well, under
your first question in terms of responsibility, i tell you, often you feel like there is incitement that is coming from the candidate himself. and usually the protesters in the crowd see it as part of -- or the supporters in the crowd see it as kind of part of the game, part of the show, and there's no incident, but, you know, when you hear stuff like that being said by somebody who is being cheered by thousands of people, it can be frightening. in terms of damage, you know, we have a big day on tuesday. florida, ohio, illinois, big primaries, two of those winner take all. most of the voting has been going on for a long time. they started voting on march 5th in florida and they started voting in february in ohio. i don't know that this will do any damage. this may in some ways help him. you know, there's resentment when people try to prevent a political rally from taking place. i think there will be a backlash against some of these protesters. but overall, donald trump needs to unify the republican party,
and then if he's going to be a general election candidate, he needs to assert and unify the country. this is not the direction he needs to see this going and is bad in the long term for donald trump. >> we always appreciate your analysis. thank you very much. we want to switch to the security angle here so let's bring in former new york city police commissioner and abc news consultant ray kelly. good morning, sir. >> good to be with you. >> great to have you here. in your view did law enforcement officials handle the overnight chaos correctly? >> yeah, i think the chicago police department did their job and did it well. this has been fermenting for awhile. we knew there would be demonstrations. they were there in force, well equipped. if you look at the policing of the demonstration outside, relatively calm. some skirmishes called into the arena after there was tumultuous activity and they came in in force and quieted it down. what i would say is we needed more private security on the floor there. now, whether or not that's the university of illinois police or promoters, i'm not sure, but
clearly we needed more sort of a uniformed presence on the floor. i think if you look at the total number of injuries and arrest, it's an indication from a police perspective, the event went fairly well even though it doesn't look like it on the television screen. >> no. >> you had five arrests, and you had three injuries, two of them police officers, so these are small numbers for a large event like that. >> so, these protesters, they have a right to peacefully protest, okay, these rallies are going to go on. the protests are going to go on. so, how do we handle this from here on out? >> well, more people on the floor, obviously more security people. now, the promoters have a right to control the doors, who comes in, who doesn't come in. have to probably pay more attention to the tickets, who gets tickets, whether there are holograms or whatever on the tickets, but one of the issues i think they've just been blasting out tickets and sort of you all come type approach. that's caused problems. >> more questions who comes through that door.
all right, commissioner kelly, thanks so much for coming in this morning. for your perspective. >> thank you, sir. high stakes primaries looming on tuesday as jon mentioned. trump's rivals in knowing these contests are coming, they are rapidly responding to the overnight chaos, and for more on that angle, let's turn to abc's david wright. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. whether you're a trump lover or a trump hater, so many people are troubled by all this and some of the haters, of course, are hoping to take advantage. trump's opponents blame him for inciting this as we've been hearing, but he insists he's the victim. >> this is a sad day. >> reporter: it should come as no surprise that the men running against trump blame him. >> when you have a campaign that disrespects the voters, when you have a campaign that affirmatively encourages violence, you create an environment that only encourages this sort of nasty discord. >> reporter: there's only one
presidential candidate who has violence at their events. >> reporter: john kasich said of chicago, "the seeds of division that donald trump has been sowing this whole campaign finally bore fruit, and it was ugly." it's one of the few issues where there's bipartisan agreement. bernie sanders spoke in illinois just a few miles away. >> stop letting donald trump or anybody else divide us up. >> reporter: at an austin fund-raiser last night before the trump rally incident, president obama took some pot shots too. >> i can insult people even better than that. i can be even more uncivil. >> reporter: obama said he doesn't just blame trump, he blames the republican party. but trump himself says he's the victim noting the protesters are violating his freedom of speech by shouting him down. >> all of the trump supporters have been really treated unfairly because first amendment says we have a right to speak. >> reporter: there's no question trump has a right to say what he is saying and thousands of voters are eager to hear him. his critics also have a right to
express their views, and with emotions running so high, it's kind of no surprise it's gotten so ugly. >> controversy after controversy involving this complain. none of it seems to have slowed him down. see where this goes. david, thank you. >> all right, we move to the nation's extreme weather. the gulf dealing with the kind of flooding that happens just once every thousand years. three states have declared states of emergency in several areas. dramatic rescues like the one you're looking at playing out as families are evacuated and abc's phillip mena is right there in new orleans for us this morning. hi, phillip. >> reporter: hi, paula, good morning. it was eerily quiet in the flooded streets of louisiana overnight. the widespread flooding has prompted curfews and evacuations here and in many parts of the south. >> y'all need help? >> reporter: this morning, historic flooding causing chaos down south. >> emotionally, a mess. it'll be okay. >> reporter: tennessee, mississippi and louisiana all hit hard with nearly two feet of
extreme rainfall in some areas. look at these homes nearly under water and this piece of a building being ripped apart and sent crashing into a bridge. dozens of cars nearly submerged. 3,500 people forced to leave their homes. this mother from louisiana is one of hundreds of families in her area who are forced to evacuate their homes. >> my little boy wants to go home, and we don't have a home right now. >> reporter: emergency response teams working tirelessly around the clock to rescue stranded people like in shelby county, tennessee, where a water vehicle helps bring people to safety. residents here are hoping the floodwaters will recede quickly so they can get back into their home, but with more rain on the way today, it's unlikely when that will happen. paula. >> our hearts go out to those struggling with that this morning. phillip, thank you. indra will have the forecast
later in the show. we turn now to the farewell for a former first lady nancy reagan. she was remembered for that unbreakable bond with her husband, that epic love story. this was an event packed with high-profile friends and mourners including other first ladies and our own diane sawyer and abc's matt gutman has the story. ♪ it was part funeral for nancy reagan and part celebration of nancy and ronald reagan's love story. >> if my mother had one great talent, i think it was that she knew how to love, and she loved one man more than the world. >> reporter: former secretary of state jim baker said it was love at first sight. >> when i opened the door, she wrote later, i knew he was the man i wanted to marry. >> reporter: president reagan reciprocated with those famous love letters. >> her laugh is like tinkling bells. >> reporter: attendees studded with journalists and stars from arnold schwarzenegger to a camouflaged mr. t. in that front row, the families of eight current and former white house residents.
first lady michelle obama, she sat right next to president george w. bush and former first lady laura bush. hillary clinton and laura bush sharing a knowing look over anecdotes of nancy reagan's fierce defense of her ronnie. >> occasionally i've thought that even god might not have the guts to argue with nancy reagan. >> reporter: and our own diane sawyer remembered that after president reagan's death, she was sustained also by her curiosity. >> she was way too interested in people and who you really were and what you really knew, all of us woven together in this life, and all this week i've been thinking about watching her head down the hall, and right there i can't remember exactly what it was, was it a pillow or a framed needlepoint, but i know the words were clearly from president reagan, and it said something like this, "if you must leave, could you just take me with you?"
♪ >> reporter: after the ceremony, her casket was brought out in the rain to join her beloved, her ronnie. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, simi valley, california. >> that's a love we don't often see. >> indeed, and a nice ceremony. >> we want to turn things over to the other stories we're tracking for that. let's send it over to ron claiborne. uncle ron as we call you. >> good morning to you paula and dan. good morning to you, and good morning, everyone. we begin with this breaking news overnight. the manhunt for two escaped inmates into mexico, police capturing convicted murderer joseph cruz in america question after two days on the run. he and another inmate managed to slip out of their shackles and get away without anybody noticing for hours. >> how did you get out of your shackles? >> how did you get out of your shackles? >> i picked it. picked the lock. >> reporter: the second escapee, lionel clah, accused of shooting a police officer is still on the run. and police are looking for this man who used a hoverboard who escaped after reportedly

a&m in the first round but their investment it fell flat after just two seasons playing in just 14 games for the browns throwing seven touchdowns and seven interceptions at a $7.7 million price tag. >> i think the entire national football league knew that drafting johnny manziel came with an inherent risk. the browns assumed that risk. they felt like when they had reached that portion of the first round, that he would be worth it. it turned out not to be the case. >> reporter: overshadowing his brief pro career his actions off the field, he spent ten weeks in a drug and alcohol treatment facility after his rookie season. in recent weeks tmz sports showing the young quarterback out partying, even spotting manziel leaving a hollywood nightclub early this past wednesday morning. and now the athlete under investigation for a misdemeanor domestic violence charge filed by his ex-girlfriend colleen crowley in january. >> personal foul. >> reporter: and cleveland's new coach hue jackson distancing himself from manziel at the nfl combine last month.
