8:02 am
appearing to grab the collar of a protester as you can see in these shots right here. >> it is hard to see. but protesters using their vehicles as well to shut down traffic, leading to another trump rally. they were later arrested. >> they were paralyzed on the road there for a little while. meanwhile two days before the arizona and utah primaries. we're hearing reports this morning of a coordinated campaign against anti-trump republicans to try to prevent trump from getting the nomination. >> george stephanopoulos is standing by with more on that. we begin our coverage with mary bruce in washington, d.c., good morning, mary. >> reporter: hi, paula. good morning. as donald trump tightens his grip on the nomination, we're seeing more and more protests across the country. most peaceful. but last night, violence and physical clashes erupted again. overnight, violent skirmishes at this trump rally in tucson. watch, as a protester being escorted out, is pulled to the ground, punched, and kicked. officers handcuffing the audience member and leading him out.
8:03 am
then, just minutes later, trump's campaign manager, cory lewandowski confronts another protester and appears to grab him by the collar. as seen in this cnn video. this morning, trump's campaign defends him. saying the individual he was speaking with was pulled from behind by the man to lewandowski's left. and that mr. trump does not condone violence at his rallies. protesters lining up on the highway leading to trump's rally, using their own cars to bring traffic to a stand still. >> three of them are in jail. >> reporter: in charge of security, trump supporter, controversial sheriff joe arpaio. >> they think they're going to intimidate you. and the next president of the united states. not going to happen. not in this town. >> reporter: and in new york, thousands of anti-trump forces gathered in front of trump tower. trump not even there. >> go out on tuesday and vote. >> reporter: rising tensions two day before the next primary.
8:04 am
the big prize, the winner-take-all state of arizona. >> we're going to build the wall and we're going to stop it. it's going to end. >> reporter: immigration is taking center stage on both sides of the aisle. >> the so-called immigration problem we face today at this particular moment is a trumped up and exaggerated problem. >> reporter: now, all this comes as the republican establishment is making a last ditch attempt to come together and stop trump from getting the nomination before the convention. but it's unclear if anything at this point can stunt his momentum. dan? >> mary, thank you. for more on that point specifically, let's bring in abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos, getting ready to host "this week." >> hey, dan. >> as mary mentioned, "the new york times" is reporting anti-trump republicans are going launch a 100-day campaign. trying to deny him the nomination. what are the odds of success? >> somebody has to beat him on the field. it will take ted cruz or john kasich to do that. you have to look at the math
8:05 am
going forward. coming up on tuesday, utah and arizona. donald trump is likely to win arizona. you need most likely ted cruz to beat him in utah. he's ahead right now. but then, the big date on the calendar is april 5th. that is the day that wisconsin votes. wisconsin, a big mid western state. if the stop trump forces have any hope, they have to beat donald trump in wisconsin, on april 5th. if they do, the chances that donald trump can get those 1237 delegates before the convention go down dramatically. and perhaps, after april 5th, it would be a two-person race. that would give the anti-trump forces a better shot. that's the key day. >> what they're saying, the reports are saying that the anti-trump folks, if they can't deny him the nomination, they may support a third party candidate. wouldn't that throw the election to hillary clinton? >> most likely. yes. it could throw to it the house. most likely, it would throw the election to hillary clinton. those people that want the third
8:06 am
party alternative, the conservatives that want this, they don't care. they would rather lose the white house than win with donald trump as the standard-bearer. >> they're playing a longer game here, they think. thank you, george. appreciate it. we want to remind everyone. george has a big show this morning. he'll go one on one with donald trump. later this morning on "this week." right here on abc. paula, over to you. >> thanks, dan. let's go overseas. authorities are starting to piece together exactly what happened in paris' deadly terror attacks after capturing salah abdeslam. the suspected paris attacker admitted to backing out of the suicide bombing at the last minute. he's facing extradition to france, where 130 people died. alex marquardt is in brussels, where abdeslam was captured. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, paula. salah abdeslam woke up this morning in a ben jlgian prison,
8:07 am
after a four-month manhunt. he says he'll fight been sent to france. europe's most wanted man has admitted to authorities he wasn't meant to survive the deadly attacks in paris. salah abdeslam was supposed to detonate a suicide vest at the soccer game between france and germany. along with team of bombers he drove to the stadium. [ explosion ] but he backed out. the paris prosecutor said. and instead, called two accomplices in belgium and asked them to pick him up. this image taken at a gas station as he fled. now, the legal process starts. belgium has charged him with participation in terrorist murder. and being part of a terrorist group. >> the real key from this arrest is the opportunity to interrogate abdeslam, find out obje about who he's been working with. find out about his ties to isis. >> reporter: the french are demanding he be sent to france as soon as possible. >> he's collaborating with the belgian justice. we'll refuse the extradition to france. >> reporter: friday's dramatic
8:08 am
raid was the culmination of four months of relentless police raids and arrests. abdeslam hardly putting up a fight when he was cornered in the now famous neighborhood of molenbeek. shot in the leg by s.w.a.t. teams and dragged away. >> who else was helping him hide? he clearly had family or friends helping him to stay out of the police's way. >> reporter: four others were arrested with him. two of them charged with harboring criminals. appeal against handing abdeslam over to france will cause a delay. officials are confident it will happen in the next 90 days. it could, however, be several years before his trial begins. dan? >> yes, but they have him. and the process of gathering intelligence begins. alec, thank you. next, to history being made today in cuba. when president obama arrives this afternoon, he'll be the first president to visit since calvin coolidge in 1928.
