7:04 am
and the added backing of anti-trump super pacs running ads across the state of indiana. a lot of good it did. in victory trump asked skeptical and some hostile republicans to accept reality and unite behind his cause. for some republicans, reality is a cause for concern. >> tonight, i'm sorry to say -- >> no! >> no! >> it appears that path has been foreclosed. >> no! >> no! >> reporter: after a brutal defeat, all that was left for ted cruz was the ugly truth -- >> we are suspending our campaign. >> no! >> reporter: cruz spoke passionately of enduring conservative principles but never mentioned trump. instead, brooding over the anti-establishment voters he failed to one over. >> together, we left it all on the field in indiana. we gave it everything we've got. v
7:05 am
>> ted cruz, i don't know if he likes me or if he doesn't like me, but he is one hell of a competitor. he is a tough, smart guy. >> reporter: magnanimous and noticeably subdued, donald trump began toon cfront reality, becoming the likely nominee of a party still deeply divided. >> i didn't expect this. i didn't expect it. we want to bring unity to the republican party. we have to bring unity. >> reporter: more than half of indiana republican voters said the nomination battle divided the party, according to cbs news exit polls. nearly a quarter said they would not vote for trump in a general election. >> this country which is very, very divided in so many different ways is going to become one beautiful, loving country. >> reporter: the combative trump made an appearance with this vague reference to his only remaining gop rival, john kasich. after a rare compliment to embattled gop chairman reince priebus. >> it's not an easy job when he had 17 egos and n
7:06 am
down to one. i don't know. is there a second? i mean, is there a second? i don't know. [ applause ] >> reporter: kasich's campaign said it would fight on and began raising money as the only remaining republican who can beat hillary clinton in november. kasich better raise money quickly. he hasn't been on the campaign trail for three days, and anti-trump money is no longer the smart money. in fact, trump bragged last night about adversaries within the gop party now climbing aboard the so-called trump train. destination, believe it or not, cleveland. >> thanks, major. republican national committee chairman reince priebus is with us from racine, wisconsin. mr. chairman, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> so you have a presumptive nominee who was not a registered republican until 2012, an outsider. where does this leave your party? >> well, what i tweeted last night is that my belief is that he will be the presumptive nominee. you're not the presumptive nominee until you hit
7:07 am
that being the case, i'm just stating the obvious. so look, where it leads is that it's time to unite is what it leads to, charlie. look, i think i said a couple months ago i thought that the republican party would end up with more clarity sooner than the democrat party. look at where they're at. i mean, once again, bernie sanders wins again in indiana when actually hillary clinton was expected to win. you know, at some point, hillary clinton's going to have to start winning something somewhere. >> all right. i'm looking at "the daily news" tabloid, "republican party 1854-2016, dearly beloved we're gathered here to mourn the gop. a once great political party killed by epidemic of trump." >> and there's an elephant in a coffin, just to make the picture really clear for you. >> let me ask you -- >> always fitting of "the daily news." >> fair enough. a question -- people within your prn party have said on this
7:08 am
the nominee, it will destroy the republican party. senator graham saying, for example, how can a presumptive nominee who has so little support from latinos and from women ever win a general election? >> let me remind everyone that what's happening is historic. when you look at voter registration against the democrats, there's never been better than in 25 years. our fund-raising in the first quarter at t rnc was an all-time record. we've raised more money than we did in 2012. what i'm telling you is that the fundamentals are actually the opposite of the narrative. now, clearly, when you have a race where you've got 17 candidates and as of late two very serious candidates with serious campaigns, it's not easy. it's hard. and i would be lying to you all if i said, okay, this is going to be easy. we're going to pivot. >> mr. chairman -- >> we've got to unify, we need t
7:09 am
and we will unify. this is what today starts. this unification process. >> mr. chairman, you mentioned the fundamentals. there are some really something facts when it comes to the numbers. in fact, trump is faring worse than romney among white voters in presidential states. even where romney won them -- colorado, pennsylvania, wisconsin. you can't win a general election in the republican party if you don't have those states, am i right? >> well, you can't win unless you are the party of the open door. and that means white voters, hispanic voters, black voters, asian voters, women. look, i get it, and there's work to do. we're going to get to work. so it's not going to be overnight and instantaneous, but we're going to work at it. we've been working at it for four years. i think donald trump is ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work. i think hillary clinton still a lot of work to win her nomination. now obviously she's in
7:10 am
driver's seat. you know, you do have to win at some point if you want to be the nominee. she needs to figure out how to win. she's nowhere near putting boots on the ground. she's got to get to work. she's got to spend money to win her democrat nomination. >> okay. thank you very much. speaking of winning or losing, should john kasich stay in or out? yes or no? >> that's up to john kasich. >> okay. all right. all right. >> up to -- >> we wanted to hear your opinion. that's okay. all right. thank you very much, reince priebus. good to see you. hillary clinton lost in indiana, as you've heard. she is still the democrat most likely to face donald trump in november. bernie sanders beat hillary clinton by four points in yesterday's primary. 52-48%. clinton now has 92% of the delegates she needs to win the nomination. she leads bernie sanders 2,202 to 1,389. nancy cordes with how both democrats are targeting donald trump. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that sanders win in indiana got overshadowed last nigh b
7:11 am
democrats now know virtually for certain who their republican opponent will be. they made it very clear how they feel about that. >> i feel good. i feel generally good. >> reporter: for we ceks,linton has been hedging her bets when ites com to her likely opponent. >> both trump and cruz -- donald trump and ted cruz -- when i hear donald trump say what he says or hear ted cruz say what he says -- >> reporter: last night, 43 minutes after cruz dropped out, she tweeted, donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee. chip in now if you agree we can't let him become president. the democratic party chair was next. trump spreads hate, and we will defeat him in november. congressional democrats began offering free stickers bearing trump's likeness with the slogan "stop bigotry." >> i'm very excited about this. >> reporter: clinton argued she's uniquely qualified to take on someone like trump. >> people ask me all the time, well, how are you going to respond to
7:12 am
not like i haven't been dealing with that for 25 years. [ laughter ] >> really? >> reporter: unlike trump, clinton must still devote time and money to fending off a well-funded primary opponent who has significant support. the surprise win in indiana tuesday left sanders even more determined to see the race through to the end. >> secretary clinton thinks that this campaign is over. i've got some bad news for her. [ cheers ] of. >> reporter: good news for clinton is that she and sanders

enthusiasm for donald trump among leaders of the kkk than leader of the political party he now controls. >> thank you. cbs news reporter and moderator here at the table along with peggy noonan. good morning. peggy, what do you make of what's at stake for the republican party? >> a lot of work ahead. at the moment, i'm thinking what a historic moment. we've never seen a year like this. we've never seen a cycle like this. we have never seen an outsider who apparently formally joined the republican party in the year 2012. >> charlie said that, yeah. >> that's so amazing. become the punitive nominee of that party. it is an amazing sweep, an amazing fact. nothing will be the same after this. >> therefore, you think the republican party will unite behind him? >> i think slowly
7:14 am
those political figures who calculate unity with him will be helpful to them or in a larger way to holding the senator in the house. they will start to move. i think that's how it will go. >> john dickerson, what should we be looking for? reince priebus says the party will unite. how? when? where? >> what time? >> yeah, what time? >> you remember when they used to talk about donald trump as the bad boy with whom voters were having the summer fling? now the wedding date is set. the family has to get to acceptance. i think you'll see a couple of different things. you'll see politicians who will rush to get next to donald trump, embrace him. there will be other who will try to tiptoe around him, kind of continue running their races, and not really confront some of the complexities of trump. then there are others who have said there's a big idea at stake here. what it means to be a conservatism. they disagree with him, and l
7:15 am
speak. they've lost. he defeated them. we've got to step back. this is a political novice who beat a dozen political professionals. he dominated the primary process which is an amazing feat. so we'll just have to kind of see how people sort it out. particularly the leaders in the house and senate who have st. louis are very different than donald trump on trade, entitlements, and immigration. >> peggy, who is the trump voter? we hear the leaders of the kkk, i was at a dinner, they said he won in greenwich and chevy chase, maryland. >> yes. >> then you have blue-collar voter voting for him, too. >> the early cliche about trump eight, nine month ago was white, working class, bitter, angry, knuckle dragging, rock-throwing folks. that was the cliche. then it became, no, there's middle-class people. then it became, oh, my god, greenwich, connecticut, just voted for donald trump. he does well in surprising demographics. for instan

carried women in indiana. you would have thought this might have been five reasons that would not have been so up against cruz and kasich. he carried women -- >> i heard the phrase secret companiers. >> yeah. you and i -- secret trumpers. >> yeah. you and i. secret and shy trumpers. they show up to vote, and trump wins by bigger numbers than expected. >> peggy noonan, john dirk san son, great to have you with us. coming up, bob woodward who had a revealing interview with trump. new details about the navy s.e.a.l. killed in an isis attack in iraq. 31-year-old charlie keating iv was killed advising kurdish for forces. he was engaged to be married in november. margaret brennan at the white house with the questions over the u.s. role in the combat zone. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. for president obama, this navy s.e.a.l.'s death is a
7:17 am
reminder of the risk that comes from his decision to put american troops back on the ground in iraq. a country he had vowed to bring them home from. navy s.e.a.l. charles keating iv of the grandson of charles keating jr., best known for his role in the savings and loan scandal in the late 1980s. keating grew up in arizona where he was a star athlete on his high school track team before becoming a navy s.e.a.l. >> he was a tremendous athlete and tremendous person. joyful kid. >> reporter: the death of keating about two miles from the front line in the war against isis shows just how close americans to the fight. it calls into question the obama administration's claim that the 5,000 troops in iraq are not serving in a combat role. >> our men and women on the ground in iraq do not have a combat mission, but they do have a dangerous mission. >> reporter: defense secretary ash carter explained their role to charlie rose. >> we have boots on the ground in iraq. what are they
7:18 am
they are assisting iraqi forces. >> but they're also engaged in search and destroy? to go and seek out isil. >> they are, they are. they absolutely are. >> reporter: keating is the third u.s. service member to die in that country in the fight against isis. special forces operator joshua wheeler was killed in the raid at an isis-run prison in october. marine artillery man luis cardin died in march when isis fired rockets into a u.s. base outside mosul. america's role is expanding. last month, 250 troops deployed to syria, and another 200 to iraq. some even fire artillery alongside local fighters. jim jeffrey, president obama's former ambassador to iraq, said denying that u.s. forces are actually fighting is just political spin on a failed strategy. >> this is a misleading, dishonest portrayal of what we're actually doing. it doesn't show the american people how deeply involved we are, as we should be in the fight againsis

commander in chief of iraq's remembered forces, prime minister al abaddyi, is also dealing with a political crisis that threaten to destabilize baghdad. the white house insists that his government is strong and the u.s. still supports him. >> all right. thank you very much, margaret. was prince ready to meet a top addiction specialist when he died? ahead, a new report reveals there was panic among those close to the music
