3:00 am
see or j.b. with a tan so she's not here. donald trump is happier than anybody else in the race because it means last week is over. or is it? ted cruz still beat the drum of trump's recent abortion comments, especially with women voters ahead of tomorrow's very important wisconsin primary. trump reminding people how he rebounded to win big in new hampshire. cruz is saying if we want to look back, look at wisconsin looking like iowa, john. he's looking for a big night. >> he does, donald trump, face an uphill battle. he is trailing by double digits in both polls. they are desperate to clinch all the states, 42 delegates. he is now pushing for john kasich to drop out of the race. both cruz and kasich want trump out. he said he would automatically win if case would just quit.
3:01 am
live in la crosse, wisconsin. good morning, jason. good morning to you, john. trump remaining as defiant as ever. he says he's had rough weeks before and he's can come out on top. telling a crowd last night, look for a surprise tomorrow he said despite what the polls say, he's going to win the state of wisconsin. gop candidates making their final print to wisconsin's primary tomorrow. barn storming the battleground state. trump admitting to having a rough week leading up to primary day after a slew of missteps in his campaign. >> i took that answer. and i didn't like it because i think a lot of people didn't understand it. >> the front-runner still trying to articulate his shifting stance on abortion, saying women should be pup issued. >> they go through a tremendous
3:02 am
punishment of themselves. i clarified it. it was just a clarification. and i think it was well accepted. >> in a move to stand disapproval from women voters, he said he regrets for tweeting a mean-spirited photo of ted cruz's wife. cruz says he's over it. >> it's gotten to the point where i could not care less about donald trump. >> fueling the firestorm, trump still standing by his campaign manager facing battery charges for alleged assault on a reporter. trump, taking aim at rivals cruz. >> he's a cheater. he's a dirty, rotten cheat. remember that. >> and john kasich. >> everyone says he's such a nice guy. he's a nasty guy, if you want to know the truth. >> trump doubling down on calls for him to leave the race,
3:03 am
arguing kasich is taking his vote and has no chance of winning the nomination. >> the problem is he's in the way of me. not cruz. he hurts me more than he hurts cruz. >> another lingering issues controversy over trump's suggestion japan and south korea develop nuclear arms to protect yourself. >> you don't go around talking about using nuclear weapons, period, end of story. >> trump taking heat for the controversial statements he made about the economy, saying the country is heading for a recession and it's a terrible time to invest in the stock market. trump calling his opponents "leftovers," saying once he beats them, he says at that point he'll start acting so presidential everyone will be bored. chris, john. all right. thank you very much. it's like we never left, john. it's ectly how you left it,
3:04 am
only worse. joining us is mr. david gregory and time warner cable news errol lewis. all right, errol lewis. let's start with the question you asked to give me right out of the box. donald trump looking at last week, his worst week ever, yes or no? >> it's a bad week. that's the point. were there worse? yes or no. i thought it was damaging because it shows not only he's behind in wisconsin and because his campaign manager got arrested but the comments that came out of his mouth with the cameras rolling showing that he hasn't thought through a lot of issues like abortion and nuclear deterrents. i think everyone understands nuclear weapons are a bad thing and it is probably not a good idea to introduce them between the world's most hostile border,
3:05 am
between the to koreas. i thought that showed weaknesses that the other candidates have talked about. this time it came out of trump's own mouth. i thought it was extremely damaging. >> he is leaving a mark. he is trailing, david gregory, by a lot heading into the polls in wisconsin voting tomorrow. if he loses in wisconsin, this is a big deal. i mean, it would be a big win for ted cruz and a serious setback in getting 1237 delegates. >> it is a state with working class voters. northwestern part of the state, up country, is tailor made for donald trump. all of that is true. there becomes an accumulation of mistakes, a mess, as peggy noonen put in her column in the wall street journal over the weekend. that's the real danger sign. the up side, his ability to
3:06 am
change his tune, his tone, and his approach. what he has namely coming up, new york, new jersey. he has an opportunity to rebound. >> let's take a look at the numbers going forward. we want what's going on in wisconsin. that's because they are treating wisconsin like they did iowa. steve king, his co-chairman was instrumental. so is the numbers are good there. we will have 20 see how it plays out tonight. new york, nobody knows it better than you do. trump now 56%, cruz 20%, kasich 19%. the rule is closed primary. you have to be republican to vote in it. if you get over 50%, you get all the delegates, 95. how likely is it that it plays out that way. >> i don't know district by district. there are extremely democratic districts that have only a tiny handful of republicans. literally. 8 million people, right.
3:07 am
we have 460,000 republicans. you spread those across half a dozen districts, you have very, very small numbers of people you have to get to them one by one. >> what does that mean? it's not easy being new york and trump. >> that's right. he doesn't have the apparatus to do that sort of thing. that's where your regular republicans come in. statewide. even counties have not by and large endorsed donald trump. they're thrilled to be in play and have the candidates come to try to talk to them. there is real hesitation at this stage of the game. >> what is going on with john kasich. you have donald trump saying kasich should get out of the race, kasich is is only hurting donald trump. for weeks it has been the cruz campaign saying kasich is hurting him. who does kasich hurt more?
3:08 am
>> the reality is his presence in the race still hurts cruz more. if you're donald trump, i don't understand the attack. a bigger race is is still better for him. he may look at someone like kasich. in krurbgsz cruz he knows the p establishment and a lot of rank and file republicans. kasich could become a safe harbor for the republican party with a convention in cleveland after all. he could certainly be part of a ticket. he's out there. he is such a distinctly different candidate than donald trump, that he becomes a safe harbor for him. i think that's what bothers trump. there's another piece of this. kasich is starting to go after trump you heard his views on nuclear proliferation. in the far east, talking about his lack of readiness. kasich decided it's time to really go after him. >> the counterpunch, i think
3:09 am
it's exactly what david said, errol. the same we have been hearing. kasich is high on appeal for a lot of on normal republicans. many were saying five months ago, kasich is the guy you have to look at. he can really unite the party. now we are on the precipice. that's where the rule 40b comes in. how big will this rule come in? >> john kasich, as you suggest, is the kind of candidate if you're a moderate republican, even a conservative tea party republican, has the experience, has the ability to sort of bring people together. he can go into the convention. he can wait until a second ballot, perhaps a third ballot, and become the nominee. this happened in the past. he has every reason to stay in the race. he has no reason to walk out of it. i think donald trump is actually right about it. i'll tell you. i think kasich is taking votes
3:10 am
away from donald trump. when you go delegate by delegate, let's give him all of new jersey, most of the remaining states after new york. you're going to find that donald trump has something -- a scenario where he comes in with something like 1,200 delegates votes. it could make a huge difference. >> i think the key there is trump is saying moving forwards he takes votes in the kinds of states where kasich can be stronger. let's remember the importance of wisconsin. it will be a test of how much hemorrhaging trump has experienced female support and women voters. because we may see this in a more pronounced way of him losing this voters because of his comments is and because of the organization against him. ? all right, david, thank you very much. david gregory, errol lewis, appreciate it. tensions between bernie sanders and hillary clinton
3:11 am
boiling over. all of this as sanders hopes tomorrow he will clinch his sixth win out of the last seven contests. chris frates has more for us. hey, chris. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michaela. debates exploded on the campaign trail this weekend with a bernie sanders and hillary clinton campaigns blaming each other for refusing to lock down a date to debate at the 'em entire state. i know that sounds a little dr. seuss like sanders rejected all three dates. those dates didn't work. for instance, one was today. don't of course is the ncaa men's basketball game. sanders folks say people want to watch basketball, not a presidential debate. one of the others floated was april 14th. sanders folks say they are having a huge rally. so thanks, but no thanks.
3:12 am
we're a little busy. the campaigns slugged it out. listen to how bernie sanders and hillary clinton talked about it, a little more circumspect. >> i'm confident we will work out at a time good for both schedules. >> i'm confident that there will be. but i'm not the one negotiating it. that's going on between our campaigns. and i do know my campaign has been really trying to get a time that senator sanders's campaign would agree with. >> you hear clinton and sanders saying they are confident there will be a debate. jeff weaver telling me he thinks it will be settled soon. new york has 250 delegates at stake. bernie sanders, while he is expected to do well in wisconsin, there's only 86 delegates here he is trailing hillary clinton by 240. so he wants to upset here in her adopted home state of new york. and when and where that happens
3:13 am
could have a huge influence on democrats before they go to the polls, john. >> chris frates for us in wisconsin. thank you so much. 12 minutes after the hour now. amtrak on limited service between philadelphia and wilmington, delaware after investigators start piecing together why a train derailed and killed two construction workers. good morning, sara. >> reporter: good morning, john. scheduling and human error are factors this morning as they continue the investigation of the crash that happened on these tracks behind me. the main question lingers. how could amtrak train and construction workers not know they were on a path to collision? a frightening moment on board this amtrak train before 8:00 a.m. sunday morning when it smashed into a piece of heavy equipment on the tracks, causing
3:14 am
the train to derail. it hit a backhoe and crashed just south of philadelphia. two amtrak workers were killed. more than 30 people injured in the collision. passengers describing the harrowing ordeal. >> i woke up being then into the seat in front of him and the window blown out beside me. there was a fireball. a frightening few seconds. we didn't know what to do. >> we got off track. then there was a big explosion. then a fire. then windows were busted out. >> they were looking into whether a scheduling factor was an error. >> we will look at mechanical operations, signal, track, human performance and survival factors. >> the derailment was the first of three incidents for amtrak on sunday. one in illinois. and then 7:30 p.m., another accident when a train struck and
3:15 am
injured one in bucks county, pennsylvania. the incidents come nearly a year after the deadly derailment in philadelphia when eight people were killed and 200 injured due to speed on a curved section of track. as for yesterday's crash outside of philly, ntsb says it's still too early to know what happened. >> as of now, we have recovered the event recorder. the forward-facing video and the inward-facing video from the locomotive to send to our laboratory in washington, d.c. john, train number 89 was en route to georgia. but this stretch of track is part of the northeast corridor. 750,000 people take trains on that stretch between washington and boston every day. this causes significant delays on a sunday, which is a major day of travel for amtrak. this morning, though, trains are
3:16 am
running, though, more slowlily between wilmington and philadelphia. steve forbes was auto board. two cars from the back. he joins us at 8:00 eastern. he was not hurt. but he has stories about what it was like on that train you will want to hear. and we will get his take on the 2016 presidential race. frigid, cold temperatures, strong winds, thousands without power all across the east. in just massachusetts, a couple was killed after a tree crushed their car, trapping victims inside. now we hear in the forecast snow. there was a lot of shock effect to this, chad. what was it about this system? >> i think it was the wind. and i think it was opening day. i think people expected baseball to be starting. all of a sudden you don't expect winds blowing at 60 and snow coming down.
3:17 am
light snow in boston. an inch or two in albany. there's the low. it goes by. it keeps us cold. you would expect april, at least the middle of april to get into the 60s and 70s once in a while. we are not even going to approach normal the next few takes. boston, new york, philadelphia, chicago, all below normal the next few days. it tries to warm up. another shot. not going to use the word polar anything. but it is a polar shot of cold air coming down and keeping us well below normal. >> so you are not going to say s is chmolar rhymes up -- say it. both candidates ready to battle for a bigger prize. the big apple. but can they even agree on their next debate date?

3:22 am
hillary clinton and bernie sanders both say they really badly want a debate. the primaries two weeks away. but neither can-can agree on a date or dates. what's going on here? walk us thaou the back and forth between the campaign. once again, david gregory and errol lewis. i love process more than anybody. i think voters do not care at all, like at all here. so what's going on? why is he worried about the campaigns? >> it's important to hillary clinton to not give bernie sanders the date that he wants because they have got an opportunity to block them a little bit. this is pivoting around the 14, which is a date he was planning a great big rally. that was going to be a culmination of his campaign here in new york. he has a lot on the line. he has a lot at stake.
3:23 am
hillary clinton's folks are saying, we're not going to give that to you. we're going to have to negotiate over that. maybe it will happen. maybe it won't. there's a lot at stake for bernie sanders. he's been a couple hundred delegates of actually checking here. we know nobody wins 100% of any state. not under the rules the democrats have. on the other hand, it's tantalizing to see 247 delegates in new york and to be down 230 delegates. bernie sanders is making a hard, high stakes run at hillary clinton. she's going to try to fend him off. the debate is one area where they will be competing. >> i'll be the mounds to our almond joy. the game has changed in new york, david gregory. there was a big assumption hillary was going to roll. it looks like she may well roll. the numbers are big. they average 54-42. but it is how those numbers have changed. bernie sanders has made up a lot
3:24 am
of ground. there is a lot of insider politics. macro issues as well, dave. what touz? >> what errol is talking building is important. he is closing the gap. we know if we look at the democratic race, it's difficult to overcome a lead that he is down by hillary clinton. he would have to win overwhelmingly in new york, new jersey, pennsylvania. so that may not be as likely. but there are the superdelegates. he could be in a position to try to persuade to come his way if he continues to rack up victories. he's up $44 million for march. all of this is for bernie sanders to build a case and say, look, hillary clinton is a weak front-runner. she is not putting this away. i'm still here. he is still pulling her to the left potentially and is certainly making the clinton campaign upset on a couple of different scores. so he has momentum left here.
3:25 am
a message and a solid backing behind him. he's not going away. >> he's not going away. he has the money to keep on on campaigning. you can start to see the clinton campaign frustrated by his continued presence. and even hillary clinton is letting the anger boil of. listen to this. >> but i have watched how we made progress in america. once you finish vent your anger, then you've got to elect people who can get things done. >> i know the bernie people came to say that. we're very sorry you're leaving. i'm telling you, people, we actually have to do something. not just complain about what is happening. >> i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about that. i'm sick of it! >> this is why she wants to get
3:26 am
bernie sanders out of the race if she can. if she can. >> let's keep in mind she, from hillary clinton's point of view, she has done everything she is supposed to do. she has a bigger delegate lead. not superdelegates. she is the last person in the world after what happened in 2008 to be able to say, hey, let's declare this over and done with. she has to tolerate senator sanders. some of her campaign people are saying, look, mathematically, unless he wins 60%, 70%, he's not going to win. >> it is not always about winning. it's what your influence is. to errol's point, the other side of it, she hasn't captured the imagination of her party in a way that blew bernie out of the water. his people are pushing back saying lying about what? what are we lying about?
3:27 am
did these people give you money? is that undue influence or is it not? >> also, think about the republicans here. trump has a base of support that is so faithful to him. it's been very die hard. so does sanders. he may not much credit for that. there are younger voters who are progressive who do not think she is the answer, who do not think she is the answer. they're giving money. they're showing up. so i think that's a big piece of it. the whole debate is process of course. hillary clinton doesn't want to give sanders anymore oxygen in this race. she doesn't want him to catch any more momentum here. we're going to start to see clinton supporters say it's time for him to step down, which is not going to happen. >> thanks so much. all right. we'll take you now to greece.

of the vessels is what you can see behind me here that have come into this turkish port. 202 migrants in total are being relocated here today, mostly from pakistan. some afghans as well. also two syrians. this is part of a deal between europe and turkey. it has created a backlog in greece. there are 50,000 people stuck in squalored camps there. europe hopes this deal, shipping them back, will begin to reduce the burden, but dissuade others from making the journey as well. it is a controversy deal. is europe abdicating its responsibility. and can they legally assess the asylum applications of people that are there. and legal concerns about sending

all right. so this is a big situation bubbling up as a culture war. mississippi and north carolina now in the culture cross hfpb hairs. 120 plus ceos from apple, starbucks, demanding the governor of north carolina repeal a bathroom bill. the new law forces transgender law that correspond to their gender on their birth schvitz. opponents say it is discriminatory. this is what people in the state like and don't like. let's have this cultural conversation. senior fellow at family research couple supports the law. peter, always a pleasure to see you. thanks for coming on "new day" to make the case. >> thank you, chris. >> peter, do you accept my premise? we know what title 9 is. we know what the supreme court did with the fourteenth amendment, equal protection
3:39 am
right to marriage for gay couples, lbgt couples. but this is about something else. this is about what is liked and not liked. we don't like these people getting what they want so we're going to stop it. >> i think it's ridiculous to argue this north carolina law is in any way unconstitutional. even the statutory laws, like sex discrimination that was adopted in 1964, to argue that it was part of the legislative intent in congress in 1964 to protect gender identity or transgender persons under that law. so i do disagree with the premise that there is anything whatsoever unconstitutional
3:40 am
about this. there hasn't been a specific case about gender yet. that would be the legal basis that would trigger funding mandates about places that receive federal funds. whether this is legal or not is something else. thiss about what folks in north carolina and mississippi right now, georgia recently want and don't want. >> it has been a part of our culture that we celebrate biological males and females for the purpose of certain intimate activity the like bathing,
3:41 am
dressing, and going to the bathroom. that's all that this bill provides is remaining the status quo with respect to that longstanding tradition. >> but times change. and that's what this is really about. are you ready to change in north carolina? are you ready to suspect respect transgender people for what they say they are? because you can't point to any potential danger here. i know that's what you are doing and others are doing. we don't see that in any statistic you can cite. i know you have been using the baker analogy we saw with gay marriage. we don't see that risk. however, we see the reciprocal risk. we see the risk to transgender people that are called out under this kind of scrutiny. >> even if the fears that many people have, legitimate fears
3:42 am
that people have about their safety -- >> how are they not? >> when you see someone who is obviously a man, regardless of whether they're wearing a dress or not, i think a woman in a restroom where she expects only to be with women or a girl who expects only to be in there with girls, can be uncomfortable with that. it is a privacy issue. even if their safety is never violated in practice. >> the person identifies as a man. so they will go into the man's bathroom. but on the birth certificate, it says they are woman. you're creating the problem. you're not solving it. >> the transgender people are creating the problem pretending to be the opposite of their biological sex even when people can see they are their
3:43 am
biological sex. >> you're saying they're pretending. they say they are not pretending. this is cultural evolution. you seem unwilling to embrace that. >> i am unwilling to embrace that. most of the american public is unwilling that embrace that their inner feelings trump their biological bodies. the american public is not on the size of the transgender movement. this applies only to government-owned buildings. it doesn't say your privately owned restaurants and stores can adopt whatever policy they want. this is keeping them out of private business, not getting the government involved in them.
3:44 am
they consider that to be an act of discrimination. >> what worse message can be september than the state action being we are against the freedom of these i individuals. look, this is going to wind up out in court. right now it's political. that's why our eyes are on north carolina to see if the governor undoes it. peter, stay with us to continue this as it moves through the different states. appreciate it, as always. >> thank you. >> all right, john. sweet 16 and elite 8 have been largely upset free. will tonight's game between north carolina and villanova, will it be different? we will tell you who will win tonight next.

blood coming out of her wherever. >> that set off a feud with these two. follow that up with a comment he made about hillary clinton. >> it's disgusting. i don't want to talk about it. it's too disgusting. don't say it. it's disgusting. we want to be very, very straight up, okay. >> if i follow that up with carly fiorina, this is what he said. look at that face. would anyone vote for that? can you imagine that, the face of our next president? months go by. however, there was a bit of an outroar. the numbers didn't really change. >> the key, be michaela, you're talking about a gop primary electorate. we are not talking about the general electorate yet. the comments of megan comment, with carly fiorina did little to nibble into support. by the way, both comments were before voting even started. one in august, one in september.
3:57 am
but really the people who like donald trump, like donald trump. women and men. >> and nothing he says really seems to botch away at that. >> this is the problem. mitt romney won 44% of the female vote. donald trump, any republican frankly will have to pass that. plus, win all the minority groups, and the coalition romney put together. you have to do better with women, hispanics and put together a better coalition if you're going to win in november. >> you see if the in fighting within the gop, that's one thing. but when it brings it to a more general populus, it changes the tone and tenor of it. >> that's exactly right. but donald trump has to roll out support from the republican women. up to that point, he hasn't suffered. >> right. >> then you see what we have seen the last week or so.
3:58 am
>> here let's play or show you a recap of this moment that lived out in social media. we saw this tweet that he sent out. he retweeted it. a picture is worth a thousand words. a picture of his wife melania and an unflattering picture of cruz. >> if you're not going to win republican women -- we're seeing numbers now that as many as 40% of republican women say they will never be able to vote for donald trump. he has a lot of makeup work to do if he pulls together the coalition of the last gop. >> just recently this is what happened this past week. >> do you believe in punishment for abortion yes or no, as a principle? >> the answer is that has to be
3:59 am
some form of punishment. >> for women? >> yes. >> he changed his stance three times in as many days. >> the third round of american politics. he managed to offend even. pro lifers and pro-choicers. they want the decision to be made between their doctor, their family and their god. this is making it very, very difficult for him to put together not just the gop coalition to get over the top. but forget about it when you come to november. >> do you see that number changing dramatically? >> who can predict anything with donald trump. >> good point. we are following a whole lot of news, including the battle for wisconsin voters. let's get to it. wisconsin is on the national stage. >> mr. trump is unwere prepared.
4:00 am
>> he shouldn't be littering up the process. >> that sleaze has no place in politics. >> they should have disqualified him. ted cruz is a cheater. >> i'm glad that the secretary has accepted the challenge to debate in new york. >> my campaign has been really trying to get a time that senator sanders's campaign would agree with. >> they have been after me a long time. it drives them crazy, but i'm still standing. >> explosions, a loud bang. >> frightening moment on board the amtrak train. >> the windows bursted out. >> it was a frightening few seconds. we didn't know what to do. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> good morning. welcome to your "new day". 7:00 in the east. alisyn is off.
4:01 am
j.b. alisyn, you shaved today. very nice of you. making their final push for tomorrow's crucial wisconsin primary. cruz is holding a double digit lead in a state that could decide whether it is contested or not. cruz's victory, if that's what happens, would make the delegate threshold hard to reach. that number 1,237. >> both are chris crossing wisconsin today. both candidates they want this now to be a two-man race with the other. both demanding john kasich drop out of the race. ted cruz is running an attack ad, a new ad, and sending out mailers blasting john kasich. let's begin with jason carroll in la crosse, wisconsin. good morning, jason. good morning to you, john. trump saying that kasich is "littering up the process."
4:02 am
it is time for him to drop out. he called it a disgrace. as for the rough week, he said he's had rough weeks before and he's come out on top and he will come out on top again tomorrow. gop candidates making their final print to wisconsin's primary tomorrow. barn storming the battleground state. trump admitting to having a rough week leading up to primary day after a slew of missteps in his campaign. >> i took that answer. and i didn't like it because i think a lot of people didn't understand it. >> the front-runner still trying to articulate his shifting stance on abortion, saying women
4:03 am
should be punished. >> they go through a tremendous punishment of themselves. i clarified it. it was just a clarification. and i think it was well accepted. >> in a move to stand disapproval from women voters, he said he regrets for tweeting a mean-spirited photo of ted cruz's wife. cruz says he's over it. >> it's gotten to the point where i could not care less about donald trump. >> fueling the firestorm, trump still standing by his campaign manager facing battery charges for alleged assault on a reporter. trump, taking aim at rivals cruz. >> he's a cheater. he's a cheater. he's a dirty, rotten cheat. remember that. >> and john kasich. >> everyone says he's such a nice guy. he's not a nice guy. he's a nasty guy, if you want to know the truth. >> trump doubling down on calls for him to leave the race, arguing kasich is taking his votes and has no chance of winning the nomination. >> the problem is he's in the way of me. not cruz. he hurts me more than he hurts cruz.
4:04 am
>> another lingering issue controversy over trump's suggestion japan and south korea develop nuclear arms to protect themselves. >> you don't go around talking about using nuclear weapons, period, end of story. >> reporter: trumping coming under fire for statements about the u.s. economy, saying the u.s. is headed for a recession and talking about the stock market, saying it's a terrible time to invest in the stock market. trump telling the crowd his daughter ivanka asked him to be more presidential. he told the crowd i will start acting more presidential when i have the nomination. chris? >> let's bring in someone to help us with that last statement and a few other ones. former campaign manager for dr. ben carson. well, you couldn't have joined a team at a better time. thank you for being on "new day" this morning.
4:05 am
how much damage do you think donald trump did to himself last week? >> good morning, chris. last week we turned a corner and started heading toward the nomination as we continue our march. i believe mr. trump, once again, showed the american people he is listening to them, olympicing to their concerns. as he continues to make his position better well-known to the american public. >> i respect that you did not take the bait. but i most pursue this with you, mr. brookover. it seemed to be the first time donald trump pwraupt people on, right and left, together, after what he said on punishing women for abortions. what do you think of that? >> i think he clarified. and he has moved on from that as he showed the american public once again who he is and what he will do.
4:06 am
>> i would hardly call flopper. he was clarifying his position as a true pro life candidate and letting people know what he thought women were going through in this tough situation as they face this issue. >> and the criticism about potential proliferation of nuclear activity, war-based activity in the middle east. japan, korea, how are we supposed to take those comments? ? i think what he is trying to say is we're in a "new day" when it comes to international politics, international realizes and that everybody needs to take a look and we need to take a look about how we help other countries.
4:07 am
>> do you believe there is any model that makes the world more safe in the world? >> what we need to evaluate along the way is what our position is, what their position is, and how we can work together to make the world safer. >> more nuclear weapons you wouldn't rule out? >> most would. but in today's world, hey, let's don't attack the people in the middle east pause they are minding their own business. we see that's not true. we need to evaluate everything with a new paradigm. >> just about ever poll has cruz up. don't forget new hampshire. people there, we had a big win there. people didn't see it coming. do you see that in the numbers.
4:08 am
>> if trust doesn't get the delegates, it becomes a much tighter race. how concerned are you about getting to that number, avoiding a convention. >> once again, i question the premise. we have never, ever had delegates in wisconsin as part of our have to getting past 1,237. in fact, the shoe is on the other foot. if cruz does not sweep wisconsin, that is devastating. >> that's interesting to know. that is the first time i have heard that that the trump team assumed that it would go blank in wisconsin. what about new york? >>. >> we're in a little bit different space in new york. we expect to do very well there april 19th.
4:09 am
do you believe -- if the numbers stay here, you have to look at it district by district. and it gets a little tricky in new york, right? you have somewhere south of 5,000. the way they are stratifying through these districts, you have to have a retail operation which is counter intuitive for a lot of people. are you concerned about your campaign's ability to go that micro in the race and make those phone calls to sometimes just dozens of people in the district? ? not at all. part of that is because of mr. trump's popularity in new york. they know mr. trump. they know him well. that's why he is doing so well there. >> do you predict you will get all the delegates in new york? that would be bold. >> well, it would be. and we will get close. >> isn't it good for donald trump to have three people in the race at some levels? >> that's been one of the other
4:10 am
parts of this campaign story which has not been accurate. as each person has fall especially off, now it's time for mr. trump, anti trump forces to show he won't garner more support. governor kasich has no path to victory. he will never get the eight states he needs to get nominated when we get to cleveland. >> do you believe that it is time for mr. trump, do you think it is time for him to be more thoughtful in what he says right now? >> i think mr. trump has been listening to the republican electorate. when it is time for him to change and move on with his message. >> nothing you heard last week gave you any cause for concern? >> no. we're on a path to victory with
4:11 am
cleveland. >> good to have you on "new day", sir. good luck going forward. >> thanks for having me, chris. >> all right. >>. >> to the democrats now. a fierce fight between bernie sanders and hillary clinton sparring over when their next debate will be in new york. all of this as sanders builds on his momentum. chris frates is live in wisconsin with more for us. good morning, again. >> good morning, michaela. debate over debates exploded on the campaign trail this weekend with bernie sanders and hillary clinton campaigns blaming the other for refusing to lockdown a date to debate in the empire state. i know it's sounds like dr.
4:12 am
seuss. like sanders rejected all three dates. those dates didn't work. for instance, one was today. don't of course is the ncaa men's basketball game. sanders folks say people want to watch basketball, not a presidential debate. one of the others floated was april 14th. sanders folks say they are having a huge rally. so thanks, but no thanks. we're a little busy. the campaigns slugged it out. listen to how bernie sanders and hillary clinton talked about it, a little more circumspect. >> i'm confident we will work out at a time good for both schedules. >> i'm confident that there will be. but i'm not the one negotiating it. that's going on between our campaigns. and i do know my campaign has been really trying to get a time that senator sanders's campaign would agree with. >> you hear clinton and sanders saying they are confident there will be a debate. jeff weaver telling me he thinks it will be settled soon. but why is it so important? new york has 250 delegates at stake.
4:13 am
that's second only to california. bernie sanders, while he is expected to do well in wisconsin, there's only 86 delegates here he is trailing hillary clinton by 240. he wants to chip into that lead. he thinks if he can upset hillary clinton there he may be able to do it. this debate, when and where it is, will be huge as new york democrats decide whether to pick bernie sanders or hillary clinton. >> chris frates for us in a cold looking wisconsin. thanks, chris. amtrak on limited service between philadelphia and wilmington, delaware after investigators start piecing together why a train derailed and killed two construction workers. sara, what's the latest? >> reporter: good morning, john. scheduling and human error are factors this morning as they continue the investigation of the crash that happened on these tracks behind me. the main question lingers.
4:14 am
how could amtrak train and construction workers not know they were on a path to collision? a frightening moment on board this amtrak train before 8:00 a.m. sunday morning when it smashed into a piece of heavy equipment on the tracks, causing the engine to derail. it was route from new york to savannah, georgia. it hit a backhoe and crashed just south of philadelphia. two amtrak workers were killed. more than 30 people injured in the collision. passengers describing the harrowing ordeal. >> i woke up being then into the seat in front of him and the window blown out beside me. there was a fireball. a frightening few seconds. we didn't know what to do. >> we got off track. then there was a big explosion. then a fire. then windows were busted out. some people were cut up. >> they were looking into whether a scheduling factor was
4:15 am
whether a scheduling error was a factor. >> we will look at mechanical operations, signal, track, human performance and survival factors. >> the derailment was the first of three incidents for amtrak on sunday. at 3:00 p.m., a train struck a vehicle in illinois, killing the 28-year-old driver. and then 7:30 p.m., another accident when a train struck and injured one in bucks county, pennsylvania. the incidents come nearly a year after the deadly derailment in philadelphia when eight people were killed and 200 injured due to speed on a curved section of track. as for yesterday's crash outside of philly, the ntsb says it's still too early to know what happened. >> as of now, we have recovered the event data recorder, the forward-facing video and the inward-facing video from the locomotive to send to our
4:16 am
laboratory in washington, d.c. >> one passenger said he could see dust and it felt like they were riding on gravel. that will be part of the investigation. the good news this morning, we have seen trains come through here. 750,000 people arrive between washington and boston every day. this is a key section between wilmington and philadelphia. we are seeing trains move through here this morning. yesterday that was causing significant delays. john. >> sara in chester, pennsylvania. coming up, we will speak the a passenger on that train. steve forbes was on board. he joins us 8:00 eastern. he was not hurt, but he has stories about what went on there amidst the confusion. and also the 2016 presidential race. listen up. winter weather advisories from michigan to southern new england. some areas could see eight
4:17 am
inches of snow. this as high winds leave thousands without power in the east. a couple was killed in massachusetts after a tree crushed their car. >> breaking news this morning, a series of electrical fires in a boiler room ceiling, shutting down terminal b at newark liberty airport, forcing hundreds to evacuate. the terminal reopened in the last hour. only one gate he remains closed. there should be little to no backups today. >> a chihuahua is waking up in an animal shelter after taking police on a wild chase. they found a tag with no identification. it's not clear where he was coming from. >> he couldn't get the token
4:18 am
into the subway thing to take b.a.r.t. >> he doesn't have easy pass apparently. >> no easy pass. >> do you want to stir the pot? not the most friendly of breeds, by the way. >> why are you so negative about chihuahua. >> the chee hua hua not friendly. i go to pet the dog and it latches it on to me like a python. it looked like a baby panda. that's the only thing i can account for. another provocative question, what's up with the ddd,

new developments in the race for president. just moments ago hillary clinton said, yes, she will debate bernie sanders. the date she wants to do it is april 13th. will berne where sanders agree to that date? joining us is senior adviser for bernie sanders, tad devine. will he be there? >> we would prefer to have a primetime debate. we offered the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th. when this whole agreement came about, it was in new hampshire. we were supposed to have them not on a friday or saturday night. she wants to debate -- they were
4:24 am
supposed to be in primetime, broadcast by networks. that's what we agreed to. we offered four days. they haven't found a day when they can be there. they have fund-raisers. we have rallies. hopefully they can debate with us. >> so you pitched for a debate. she's pitching three. april 4th, that's not going to happen. april 14th. that could be in primetime. and the 15th. they're out as far as you're concerned? >> on the 14th, we're having a rally. we have a permit. it's the only night that washington square is available in new york. our campaign is about big rallies. we will have a big rally that night. we have a big permit for it. that's the only night that venue is available. we offered four nights that week. maybe they can move a fund raiser. it's a lot of squabble about things. hopefully we can find a way to

4:26 am
could do. he got in, the skepticism was almost unbelievable. i think we have a real good chance. >> you said it would all be different. true? >> yeah. it's obviously -- listen, we tried to win tree states. we decided on a different course. he is demonstrating he is the strongest candidate. he is the only one who beats all the republicans. this is important to democrats, particularly superdelegates. so if we can continue to win, if he has a good day tomorrow, and we continue all the way to california, we will ask the party to make a serious decision. >> right now he is getting crushed in superdelegates.
4:27 am
hillary clinton, 483 superdelegates say they are supporting her. bernie sanders just has 31 you can you are losing badly in that race. how do you turn it around? >> i think we turn it around by winning with voters. superdelegates in 2008 changed from hillary clinton to barack obama because senator obama demonstrated he would be a strong candidate. the right thing to do is obvious. hillary clinton in her own state of new york in a poll last week has a net unfavorable. 49-49 with general election voters in her home state. bernie sanders won 71% the last time he ran in vermont some she's beating him in her home
4:28 am
state. >> she is. we're looking forward to campaigning there. we have a couple of weeks. we have seen when bernie is on the ground. he closed a 15-point gap in iowa in just a month. where bernie gets in, voters respond. that's because he generates excitement and brings massive number of people together. i think that's what we need and bernie is the only guy that can do it. >> thank you, tad. >> good to be with you. could wisconsin reshape the republican race? if ted cruz defeats donald trump, that does that do to the odds of a contested convention? we will get answers, or try to, from the rnc. concealers and foundations in new shades for more skin tones. with vitamins and antioxidants. your skin will look beautiful when you wear it and even after you take it off.

4:35 am
results they have. >> 40b, 40b. you keep hearing it. this is something they can or cannot extend through the next convention. what's your take? >> i think there is a lot of conversation about 40b. 42 says all the rules in this convention or for this convention are temporary. these delegates that are elected, they will sit down and scrap the rules for this. the 2012 delegates, largely made up of mitt romney. created a rules package for that. the delegates of this, which are largely going to be cruz and trump delegates, will sit down, elect members to be on the rules committee. and craft bills in this convention the way it has since the 1800s. >> paul is celebrating saying the chickens are coming home to roost. this is what the party wanted to
4:36 am
keep him out. now that it may work against someone that the party wants to keep in, they want to remove the rule which says you need to have a certain number of sell gates in eight states. kasich won't meet that rule, so he should be exempted from the convention. they want kasich in. they will change the rules in their favor. is that a fair criticism? >> no, it's not. there are two issues at stake here. one is no matter how you slice it, plain and simple, no exception. whoever gets the majority of the delegates wins. the party doesn't want anything. the party's job is to administer a fair and transparent process. they have been elected at the grassroots level. it is their job to go in on behalf of the candidates and argue for what they want as a
4:37 am
rules package and ultimately come out with a nominee. but it is those people, those delegates elected by republican voters that will decide. it is the arbiter, the people who have put on the show to ensure they have a system to vote. >> two is it trues for you. is it true that the conversations between priebus left with an understanding he will support the nominee coming outs of a convention? >> i think mr. trump clearly talked about the fact we need to be unified. he understands only a unified republican party will defeat the democrats. again, as i said earlier, i'm not going to get into the discussion. i think every candidate understands anything less would give a huge hand out going into november. >> is it true that party officials are planning for a contested convention and that is
4:38 am
certainly the momentum of the party right now? >> wisconsin had 42. 92 in new york. it is clear someone may not get to 1237, of course we will take additional steps to prepare for this convention. i think i said to you before, we had two hurricanes. we prepare for everything. we're going to ensure we are ready for this and that it is app open, fair, and transparent process. if we go into this open convention, all the intensity and enthusiasm for the world to watch and we come out as a party ready to win. >> well, to extend your metaphor, there are certainly clouds gathering over the site of where the convention will be. thank you for coming on "new day" to make the case for us

24 hours until a big moment in this campaign where there could be big changes and surprises. the wisconsin primary is tomorrow with ted cruz and bernie sanders leading in the polls. what will happen and why? one man who knows the answer? washington bureau chief of the sentinel, craig gilbert. thanks so much for joining us. let's look at the democratic race. the polls show bernie sanders with a slight lead over hillary clinton. the question is why? why is this the case in wisconsin where hillary clinton was able to prevail in illinois, she was able to win in ohio. what's going on here? >> well, for one thing, it's an open primary. so independents can vote. bernie sanders has done consistently a lot better than hillary clinton. it is a state that didn't have a big african-american vote, which is not good for hillary clinton.
4:44 am
and it is a state where there has been an audience for the kind of candidate that bernie sanders is with a really progressive message. he is appealing to both independents and young voters who also have a history of turning out in wisconsin. >> it is interesting. you look at wisconsin. it sounds simplistic. but the republicans are really republican and the democrats are really, really democrat. it is a heavily polarized state. ted cruz is leading donald trump. the question is, why is this happening? it's not just the donald trump stumbles, is it? >> no. i mean, there is -- donald trump has had sort is of chronically below average numbers in wisconsin for months. and if you look at this poll that cbs just did, when people were asked -- when republican voters were asked, what should the republican party do if donald trump keeps winning
4:45 am
primaries and 50% say try to deny him the nomination at the convention. and only 30% said get behind donald trump. that's one indication of how this state is kind of soft for donald trump. and i think one of the wild cards in this race, it's really all been about trump. you have both kasich and cruz hanging out there. kasich, though, is going to have an impact statewide and an impact at the congressional district level. yesterday you had both cruz and trump camps saying kasich's presence in the race was hurting him. he should get out of the race. it's hard to imagine both can be true at the same time. >> they both can't be right. who is more rate? who does kasich hurt more, trump or cruz? >> we will have a much better clue after the election. it will be interesting to look at that. you can argue in one sense
4:46 am
kasich is competing with trump for moderate voters. and some polls say cruz is in demand. on the other hand, we can assume both kasich voters and cruz voters have one thing in common, they don't like donald trump. >> the other thing about wisconsin is the establishment, as the it were, may not be as much as on of a bad thing as we saw in this election cycle. why? well, the national republican establishment is from wisconsin. you have priebus, scott walker who remains popular among voters. >> yeah. there's definitely a lot of anti-establishment feeling here. i don't think wisconsin is immune to that. not only are all of these national republican figures from wisconsin, but republicans have been having their way in wisconsin.
4:47 am
i don't think there's as much frustration maybe as there is in some other states. they have been dominant. they have had a stronghold on the state legislature. scott walker was elected in 2010 and won 2010, 2012, 2014. it may not be the same level of frustration in wisconsin. you noted how polarized the state is. that creates some solidarity among republican aoe let's and republican voters because of just the sheer level of conflict with democrats. the state has been ward over perennially as well. >> so what does wisconsin happen tomorrow, does it stay in wisconsin? or if sanders is able to win there, if ted cruz is able to win there, will that be a jumping off point for both campaigns and perhaps shake things up going forward? >> yeah. that's a great question in both contests. there obviously will be some sort of psychological momentum effects out of of washington.
4:48 am
it's all there by itself. we have this big run-up. we have a two-welcome period out of new york coming on out of wisconsin. so it does have an impact. you also have to keep in mind the local factors, wisconsin factors that work here. it's a very distinctive political culture. we have talked about some of that. it is certainly a different political culture than new york. i think donald trump will have an easier time in new york than he had in wisconsin. obviously new york has a lot of distinctive characteristics for the democratic race. bernie sanders and hillary clinton both being from new york. so i think it's going to tkrbg new york is going to look different than wisconsin. but certainly the stop trump people are looking to wisconsin, which is a great opportunity for them, to really change kind of the story line about donald trump coming out of here. >> thank you so much for being with us. appreciate it. >> great to be with you.
4:49 am
>> we want to know what your take is. tweet us at "new day" or post facebook.com/newday. all right. will ted cruz come out with a win in wisconsin tomorrow? why does the texas senator seem more concerned about john kasich? we will try to get more answers from the campaign next for you. wild-caught alaskan salmon.

4:53 am
. senator ted cruz is betting big on a wisconsin primary win tomorrow. the polls are on his side. most have cruz leading donald trump by double digits. if he does win in wisconsin what does that mean for a cruz path to the nomination? let's ask the national spokesperson for the ted cruz campaign. ron, you can say that's obvious mitigation. the trump camp is saying so what. we never thought we were going to win wisconsin. even if cruz wins he can't get to 1,237. this is much ado about nothing. your response? >> if it is so much ado about nothing then why is donald trump spending so much time campaigning in wisconsin? why did he add three additional campaign stops to wisconsin? this is just more of the expectations game that the donald trump campaign is trying to deal with as the campaign has
4:54 am
so much air coming out of the balloon. donald trump has had a really bad two weeks. we are closing the delegate gap with our win in utah, great results in colorado and north dakota while donald trump looks forward to not having a very good night in wisconsin and having his path to 1,237 become much more complicated as a result of these cruz victories. >> they say it is all about the northeast. we are coming to new york and a chance to get over the 50% and on a district by district basis may get all 95 in new york, rhode island and then we are right on the precipice of 1,237. what does ted cruz do in new york where that new york values thing may be hanging over his head? >> i'm born and raised in new york. everybody knows what senator cruz was referring to with respect to new york values referring to liberals who
4:55 am
elected a very deeply unpopular mayor. that is what senator cruz was referring to. since new york was awarded on delegate by delegate basis long island politics and upstate new york politics is different than new york city politics. there are opportunities in new york but it is donald trump's home state. and it is a long ball game. the bottom of the fifth and we have a lot more innings to go. >> you make an interesting point, the juicy number of 95 does belie a very intricate process. you will have to see what the registration roles are like now. you have to be a republican to vote. but it does potentially play to the cruz campaign's strength of retail politicking, working the phones to get to these discrete
4:56 am
districts. how much resource are you putting into this? >> i'm not going to raise the curtain on dollar for dollar. the reality is the cruz campaign is a strong campaign organization that goes down to the congressional district level in the states where we are competing and competing everywhere. my state of california we vote last in this process and we have been organizing in california since august. the trump campaign barely figured out there is barely a country west of the rocky mountain s. what is more important is that the republican party is uniting behind senator cruz because of his message, his message of jobs, freedom and security which is what we are focussed on is that is where the heart of the republican party is. it is not just about anti-trump or stopping donald trump. it is also about electing a republican nominee who put solid republican ideas into action and that is what the people of wisconsin are looking for as well as the northeast and
4:57 am
everywhere else. >> it seems it is also about stopping governor kasich. you have your new attack ad going after him saying that the accusation is that the governor is guilty of shady financial ties to a company that you say benefitted after he got into office with money. do you believe that that is an accusation that came up before by democrats, didn't work then. why should it work now? do you believe that is the way to campaign? >> a couple of things. john kasich is a spoiler in the race. he has no path to victory and he won a total of one state so far and barely a presence in many states that have yet to go. he is a spoiler. everybody knows that and he hasn't been scrutinized. we are providing some of that scrutiny so that voters can make an educated choice. what is most significant about what we see with john kasich is
4:58 am
that he repeatedly would say that in the midwest he is going to do great. he is not doing well there. in one midwestern state after another john kasich doesn't win and it's hard to claim that he is the most electable candidate when the voters are not choosing him. when you lost 27 times it is hard to say you are the most electable candidate. it is time for him to step aside and stop trying to be a spoiler for donald trump. so a lot of news going on right now. we are right on the door step of what happens in wisconsin. there is this deadly amtrak train derailment to tell you about. let's get right to it. let me get rid of the other two. >> i could not care less about donald trump. >> he is a dirty rotten cheat. remember that. >> a vote for me is a vote for john kasich. >> it's good if he gets out.
4:59 am
i don't want him in. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. >> what we are hearing is truly scary. >> you are looking at the strongest democratic candidate. >> it matters who is leading our country. >> kind of a frightening two seconds. >> dozens injured. >> we got off track and it was like a big explosion. this is "new day"." good morning. it monday april 4. it is just before 8:00 in the east. allison is off. j.b. is with us and michaela. >> a month left. >> i get misty. >> now you are sucking up. >> this is real. this is real. >> good luck. >> ted cruz and donald trump ready for battle in wisconsin
5:00 am
hoping to capture the state's 42 delegates tomorrow. trump does trail cruz in most polls, many of them by double digits. if he leaves that state empty handed the odds of a contested convention up. >> donald trump does face an uphill battle in wisconsin calling on the republican party to force john kasich out of the race. he wants to see a two-man race, donald trump does, between himself and ted cruz. ted cruz actually likes that idea. he is running a new attack ad against john kasich and sending out mailers, as well. cnn all over the race this morning. let's begin with jason carroll in wisconsin. >> reporter: good morning to you. trump reminding crowds over the weekend that he is an entrepreneur and he is not accustomed to being asked questions about things like nato or abortion. he says he has had rough weeks before and come back from those rough weeks in the past and says
5:01 am
he is going to do it again tomorrow. gop candidates making their final sprint to wisconsin's primary tomorrow barn storming the battle ground state. trump admitting to having a rough week leading up to primary day after a slew of missteps in his campaign. >> i took that answer and i didn't like it because i think a lot of people didn't understand it. >> the front runner struggling to articulate his shifting stance on abortion after saying that if abortion were outlawed women who get the procedure should be punished. >> women go through a lot. they go through a tremendous punishment of themselves. i didn't like because i wasn't sure people would understand it. i clarified it. it was a clarification and well accepted. >> reporter: in a move to stem disapproval from women voters trump saying he regrets retweeting a mean spirited photo of ted cruz's wife. cruz says he is over it. >> it has gotten to the point
5:02 am
where i could not care less about donald trump. >> reporter: fuelling the fire storm trump still standing by his campaign manager facing battery charges for an alleged assault on a reporter. the billionaire fighting to make last minute gains. trump taking aim at rivals cruz. >> he is a cheater. he's a dirty rotten cheat. remember that. >> reporter: and john kasich. >> everyone says he is such a nice guy. he is a nasty guy. you want to know the truth. >> reporter: trump doubling down on calls for the ohio governor to leave the race arguing that kasich is taking his votes and has no chance of winning the nomination. >> the problem is he is in the way of me, not cruz. he hurts me more than he hurts cruz. >> reporter: controversy over trump's suggestion japan and
5:03 am
south korea create nuclear weapons to protect themselves. >> you don't go around talking about creating nuclear weapons. >> reporter: trump telling supporters that no one has more respect for than he does. telling reporters later that his comments could actually hurt him with female voters. >> jason, thanks for that. to the democrats. bernie sanders, hillary clinton duking it out over when they will debate in new york. all of this as sanders is narrowing ahead of clinton in tomorrow's battle ground in wisconsin. how would a loss there impact the clinton campaign? >> reporter: good morning. so this debate over debates really exploded on the campaign trail this weekend with a bernie sanders and hillary clinton campaigns both blaming the other for refusing to lockdown a day to debate in the empire state.
5:04 am
the clinton campaign saying they offered three different debates to debate bernie sanders in new york. sanders rejected all three. the sanders people saying those dates didn't work. one of those proposed dates was tonight which is the ncaa men's basketball final. one of the other proposed dates was april 14th. folks saying we are doing a huge rally in new york city expecting 10,000 to 20,000 people. and they put out their own set of dates that they are proposing. the campaign slugged it out but bernie sanders and hillary clinton were a little more. >> i'm confident we will work out a time that is good for both of our schedules and large numbers of people will be watching. >> i'm confident there will be. i'm not the one negotiating it. that is going on between our campaigns. i know my campaign as been trying to get a time that
5:05 am
senator sanders campaign would agree with. >> so there you have hillary clinton and bernie sanders both using the same words that they are confident that there will be a new york debate. the campaign manager for bernie sanders telling me he thinks this will get settled soon. you have to look at the math. new york has 250 delegates, give or take up for grabs on april 19 second only to california. so bernie sanders looking to upset hillary clinton in her home state. he needs 75% of the delegates left to clinch a nomination. hillary clinton needs 35%. while he is expected to do well here in wisconsin tomorrow there is only 86 delegates up for grabs. he wants to make a big splash in new york. hat is why when and where this debate happens is a big deal. amtrak is running limited service between philadelphia and wilmington, delaware as federal investigators look into what caused a train to slam into a backhoe near philadelphia and
5:06 am
derail. sara ganim is live at the scene. what is the latest there. >> reporter: investigators here looking at scheduling and human error as potential factors in what caused this deadly crash on these train tracks behind me as the main question lingers. how did an amtrak train and amtrak construction workers both not know they were on a path to collision? a frightening moment on board this amtrak train just before 8:00 a.m. sunday morning when it smashed into a piece of heavy equipment on the tracks causing the engine to derail. the train was enroute from new york to savannah, georgia, hitting a backhoe and crashing just south of philadelphia. two amtrak workers were killed and more than 30 people injured in the collision. passengers describing the heroing ordeal. >> i woke up to being thrown
5:07 am
into the seat in front of me. the window blown out beside me. there was a fire ball. kind of a frightening few seconds. >> it was like a big explosion and then a fire and then the windows bursted out. some people were cut up. >> reporter: the ntsb is now investigating looking into whether a scheduling error was a factor. >> we are looking at mechanical operations, signal, track, human performance and survival factors. >> reporter: the derailment was the first of three incidents for amtrak sunday. a train struck a vehicle in illinois killing the 28-year-old driver. around 7:30 another accident when a train struck and injured a pedestrian in pennsylvania. the incidents come nearly a year after the deadly derailment in philadelphia when eight people were killed and 200 injured due to speed on a curved section of
5:08 am
track. as for yesterday's crash outside of philly the ntsb says it is still too early to know exactly what happened. >> now we have recovered the event data recorder, the forward facing video and inward facing video from the locomotive. >> one passenger on that train told cnn he knew something was wrong. they could see a cloud of dust outside of the window and felt like they were riding on gravel. he said this is the kind of account that investigators will want to hear. note worthy is that this stretch is between philadelphia and wilmington. there are trains running here on some sort of delay. this is very important that they are running this morning. we are on the northeast corridor 750,000 people run the route between boston and washington,
5:09 am
d.c. each day. this caused significant delays on sunday which was a busy day for amtrak. this morning things are running hopefully on time. >> thanks so much. >> steve forbes was on board that amtrak train when it crashed. he is here to tell us more about it. his latest book is called reviving america. forbes is chairman and editor and chief of forbes media. it is good to see you well, sir, this morning. thank you for joining us. you say you are okaybut thisis not an easy experience to live through. tell us about it. >> of course, our hearts go out to the families of those two construction workers who were killed and those who were injured. we were in the last passenger car so we didn't get the hit that the first two cars did. clearly something was wrong. there appeared to be smoke. suddenly you were stopping. and it was a matter of nano
5:10 am
seconds but you felt that the train was coming to a screeching halt and then eased up a little bit like a driver hitting the brake and then easing up all in a matter of a couple of seconds. in our car the coffee was flying everywhere and there was a smell of smoke. the first thought is there is a fire. that went away quickly and we knew we needed to sit and wait. we didn't hear anything for at least a half hour. so we were all speculating, the brakes go out. rumors are starting to fly around. finally responders asked if anyone was injured. in our car no one was injured. then we heard and got off the train after about 45 minutes, the responders were there and doing a very good job. we went across the track and through the woods to the local church. you can see when you got off the train that there was a derailment in the first two cars. first one was badly hit.
5:11 am
amazing when you look at that car there weren't more injuries. >> what amazes me is that can happen in the first two cars you can be in the last and while you were shaken and spill coffee you were all okay. >> that's why some people say you should sit in the back and not the front. you can't calculate these things. >> you guys were sitting in the car for 25 minutes. were people trying to get out? >> we knew don't try to get off a train when there might be live wires around or something like that. people were some veteran riders. that is why they were speculating brake system or this and that. we knew to sit tight and don't try to do anything and eventually we would get word. >> the reason you had to sit there so long is you believe the pa system went out so they weren't able to have overhead communications. that doesn't relieve your curiosity about why it took that
5:12 am
long to figure out what was going on. >> no. since no one expected this they are all concerned about those injured in the front of the cars and focussed on that. it gets to what kind of communication system they have internally. you think in this day and age they would have a backup system. you would say something like stay on the train. it is nice to hear that somebody is overseeing the thing and terms of how you respond. planes the crew is trained. you do this and that. here i'm not sure they have that kind of precise training what to do in various cars since with the train there is such a difference in impact depending on where you are at. >> we are glad you are okay. our heart goes out to the people injured and the two workers who died and their families. thanks for being here to tell us their part of the story. let's switch gears to politics.
5:13 am
donald trump, ted cruz, wisconsin primary tomorrow. a lot of people looking back at last week saying it was donald trump's worst week ever of this campaign. we won't make you judge whether it was the worst week ever but it wasn't good. how does he recover and is he capable of it? >> this is where really cruz and trump -- let's say the polls are right. michigan in the democratic primary you have to have the caveat. let's say polls are right that cruz wins wisconsin first time outside of the southwest southeast that he has won. can he bring up his game for new york, pennsylvania and northeastern states? he has to focus more on message. if he focuses on flat tax and leave with issues. >> shock you bring up flat tax. >> it's monday and so these things happen. he has a good flat tax plan out there. your messenger for issues on how
5:14 am
to get the economy moving. donald trump has had a terrible week. the shock about the abortion answer was not just the answer. you know in the republican primary you better have that answer on abortion down and never vary from it. the fact that he wasn't prepared for it when he went on with chris matthews was a shocker. >> he says it was a clarification and people are okay with how he clarified. >> you don't have a clarification ten month into a race especially on abortion. you know you are going to get hit with it. you better be prepared for it. >> what does it mean to you? >> ted cruz has to step up his game. donald trump has to step up his game. he has been very good at relying on his gut and defied all expectations. when you start throwing out you want south korea and japan to have nuclear weapons that is
5:15 am
part of a major foreign policy speech that indicates you sought this thing out. you're past the toss up stage. you have to do more speeches where people fear you are taking this thing seriously. you have to get substance out there. >> you are suggesting that he use something that we haven't seen before from donald trump which would be discipline which would be discretion. you have known him for a long time. three decades. is he capable of changing? is he capable of pivoting? >> that's what people want to see. obviously has discipline. you don't get buildings up by being ill disciplined. on the campaign trail part of the initial charm was he would toss these things off. that's going to continue but on major issues like what you do with nato especially with russia and china and asia in an
5:16 am
aggressive mood to toss off these things like you are talking about how to pave streets in madison, wisconsin, very different thing. he did that in apec. he had the teleprompter there. he has to do more of that to show people he can take it to the next level. >> do you see yourself supporting donald trump? >> the republican nominee whoever it is. can you keep your core and change with it? reagan was a master of that. so can trump take it and say here are serious issues. i'm giving serious addresses on it. i have people around me. so it is not just a tossup. >> if he stays the way he is which he might, would he get your vote? >> i think he wouldn't get the nomination. i think it is the point now where there are so many people in the party. you see what cruz has been good at in terms of making sure you know who the delegates are going
5:17 am
into that hall in cleveland. if trump is not at the 1,237, more than 100 off of that he won't get the nomination. if he is going to get these people who may be leaning towards him, paper quoted a woman who went to an event in wisconsin she said he didn't seem so bad i think i can vote for him. >> a high bar being established. he didn't seem so bad. >> he has his core voters. people who may be leaning towards him like somebody kicking things around they need to be persuaded. that is what he has to do. and it is fluid enough where he can still do it. after this week i hope it would be a wakeup call to him and his campaign. got to do that or you are not going to get the 1237. >> appreciate you being here to talk politics and being in one place and keeping attention to what happened to those not so fortunate on the amtrak train.
5:18 am
other headlines. outrage pouring in from top officials around the world to leak documents alleging secret offshore companies were created to hide billions of dollars. point to a clandestine network involving associates of russian president vladimir putin and at least one member of fifa. cnn has not been able to independently verify reports and is seeking comment. cnn's political coverage on "saturday night live." a spoof between kate baldwin and scotty hughes. >> as a woman, how can you keep depending mr. trump? he retweeted a sexist unflattering photo of ted cruz's wife. >> so actually that was an accident because donald's hands
5:19 am
are just so big he can't see every little tweet his fingers retweet. of course, donald loves women he is a father to a woman. >> we have a clip of donald talking about his daughter from a rally this morning. >> she is so smart, so talented and what a rack. >> no, okay. so that was beautiful. you're just trying to work it, but is it worth it? you put his thing down, flipped it and reversed it. >> she said she has a great sense of humor about the spoof but did call it the ultimate sexism for "saturday night live" to attack her for being
5:20 am
outspoken. >> you want to know what sexy is? >> just look in the mirror. >> close my friend. >> this is what happened. >> there he is. >> what is the thing on the bottom? >> apparently you take to growing a full on beard on vacation. >> what happened here? >> it is red sox opening day. that is a b. >> for berman and for boston. >> your boys wanted you to do this? >> they wanted me to shave their initials into my face so i went to b. >> your dedication to team, to country, anything that matters did not mean enough for you to keep the beard. >> i offered to shave cnn into it. i tried but they said no. >> tattoo would work. >> neck tattoo. >> that's a good look for you. >> i can't mock him about it.
5:21 am
hillary clinton, bernie sanders debating when to hold the next debate. that's what it has come to. straight ahead we speak to a member of clinton's inner circle who is accusing the sanders campaign of fuelling this debate debacle.

people of new york deserve to hear us discussing the important issues facing that state and facing the country. i suspect it will work out.
5:25 am
>> in less than 24 hours voters head to the polls in wisconsin but you heard it right there. what is going on in the campaign right now? bernie sanders and hillary clinton locked in one of the most high minded discussions that can take place in a campaign, a debate over debates. joining us now to discuss is senior spokesperson for the clinton campaign and senior adviser for communications. let's clear this up right now. i had tad divine on. i proposed to him the date that your campaign has put out, april 4, 14th and 15th. he counter proposed with 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th. >> we have said the 14th which is interesting the sanders campaign is saying it doesn't work because that was an original date suggested in february. we thought we were coming back to them with what they wanted. we said 14th or 15th. i guess there is issue about
5:26 am
they want to do a rally and they don't want to do both. hillary clinton has done both on the same day. i think senator sanders has, too. we will see what happens. the conversation is still ongoing. we think the 14th and the 15th looks like we may have a national cable partner, we may have local partners. a lot of pieces are coming together quite nicely for the 14th. i guess we will have to wait and see. >> the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th out. >> i think the 14th and 15th is what we prefer. i can tell you kind of the latest as i know it. >> the voters i think care zero percent about these dates. i love it when campaigns delve into this. i want to talk about wisconsin. bernie sanders leading hillary clinton 48% to 43%. why is hillary clinton losing in
5:27 am
wisconsin? >> well, again, time and again i think we have had this conversation. we knew it would be tight. i think wisconsin to some degree favors senator sanders. it is going to be close. don't count us out yet. we have a great team on the ground in wisconsin. you had president clinton and hillary there over the weekend. so we feel good that we are going to keep working hard right down until the polls close and then we move on to new york and other states. i think the thing that we are looking at, though, here is remember senator sanders has to win over 50%, 57% of all the remaining states in order to challenge the math, if you will. so again i think we will do quite well but i don't think it will change the dynamic of the race in that we will continue to have more pledged delegates and hillary has 2.5 million more
5:28 am
votes than senator sanders about a million more than donald trump. i don't think those fundamentals will change much. >> is it just an issue of math or an issue of message, as well? over the last few days there are those who have said hillary clinton has become frustrated with the presence of bernie sanders and his supporters in this campaign. i want to play a little sound of the secretary of state right here. let's listen. >> i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about this. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. we were not lying. we were telling the truth. >> that wasn't quite the sound i was thinking about. that brought up the issue of fossil fuels. hillary clinton says not really
5:29 am
true. the "washington post" found there is some money like $300,000 that bernie sanders accepted, $50,000 roughly by their accounting. it is some money. >> the charge is not some money. the charge has been that she is beholden to the industry. he has made a lot of these sweeping charges about secretary clinton and various aspects of her record and they are just not true. it is not just the "washington post." the "new york times" has done one. there have been several over the weekend that looked alt this and said it just doesn't hold water. first of all, as you know corporations can't actually donate to campaigns. so no campaign is taking money from the industry. >> individuals who work in the industry. >> but here is the thing. that is exactly my point. if we are taking money from people who work in the industry and senator sanders is taking money from people who work in
5:30 am
the industry, that is a double standard if you are going to say it is not okay for the people who work in the industry to support secretary clinton but okay to support senator sanders. what fact checks have pointed out the percentage of money that she has received from folks who work for oil and fossil fuels, if you will, it is a very small percentage. this is someone who has been very strong on climate change issues as she was in the senate, as she has put forward a strong platform here in the campaign. it's like when you mix the charges about being beholdened to wall street and has ads by hedge fund guys and he has no proof that says here is a place where we can see directly that they influenced her in any way shape or form. that is the problem.
5:31 am
i think that was the frustration that you saw leveling the broad based charges that fit a certain narrative that you are trying to put out there. we have to stand up to that. >> perhaps you can do it on a debate stage. thanks for being with us. >> that is harder than trying to schedule a lunch with you, john 31 minutes past the hour donald trump trying to put a nightmare week in the rear view but are voters willing to forgive and forget? david axelrod next on "new day." ? we're good. okay... what if a million people download the new app? we're good. five million? good. we scale on demand. hybrid infrastructure, boom. ok. what if 30 million people download the app? we're not good.

the republican front runner remains donald trump. he is very happy today is monday because he is very much trying to get past last week. this is a new week but will he be haunted? in a new op-ed former senior
5:36 am
adviser to president obama writes the following. >> trump looked like a guy who simply can't hack it. thus ends the reading. >> david joins us now. the ax, how do you defend that comment? donald trump says a couple of things that you could make the case have helped him in the past. >> i think the test get harder as people begin to focus on you as a potential nominee and a potential president. donald trump did very well speaking his mind, saying whatever he felt like saying. people found that refreshing. i think it exhilarates his supporters. but presidents can't say whatever they want to say. presidents -- when presidents speak they can send armys marching and markets tumbling. to be in a position where on an issue like abortion you have five different renditions of
5:37 am
your position in a week gives people pause. i don't think it does any damage with his core supporters who are deeply committed. but i think he makes it very difficult for him to grow his support. you say monday is a new week for donald trump. tuesday is another primary for donald trump and it may make this another uncomfortable week for him. >> mri on the soul. campaigns are long and sometimes good for 345iramericans. he has had what many consider his worst week of the campaign so far so what is your advice to donald trump? how does he turn this around? >> i think he has to proceed on the notion that he can and that this is a bump in the road but has to show some level of stability and maturity and it is difficult to do that without throwing away that appeals to his supporters which is the
5:38 am
sense of spont nayity. i think he has to find the balance. i do think presidential campaigns more than any issues are really a test of how you deal with pressure. that is what people want. i think back to the 2008 campaign when i was working for barack obama he had challenges along the way. the reverend wright controversy and others. the way he dealt with them was the way in which people came to believe he can handle the pressures of the presidency. donald trump looked very unsure and very clumsy in his handling of these issues. i think it gave people not core supporters but others pause when they thought about him sitting in that office doing the most difficult job on the planet. >> so if wisconsin goes the way that the polls are suggesting which means cruz wins handily how big of a deal is that? we just heard this morning they never thought they would do well
5:39 am
in wisconsin. that was news to the ears on this side of the screen right now. what do you make of the implications? >> i used to be a reporter at city hall. there is a great old reporter there named harry golden jr. when people said stuff like that he would snap his note book shut and say that is not true enough to print. the trump people had great hopes for wisconsin and they should have because it's an industrial state of blue collar, large blue collar population. he does well with those blue collar voters. it's not the kind of evangelical state that iowa was where ted cruz had a natural constituency. there were lots of reasons to believe wisconsin would be a good state for donald trump and the fact that he is struggling there is an indication of problems. if he doesn't do well tomorrow night it means the probability of a contested convention goes
5:40 am
up significantly and that is what all of those who are opposing him, the conservative movement and the establishment are working for. they want to stop him from getting that 1,237 and throw that convention open. >> on the democratic side there is a debate over debates. having been through a few campaigns does anyone ever win these debates? who is better poised to emerge right now? >> let me sayparaphrase abraham lincoln. i don't think anybody really cares. there may be folks within the two campaigns who care. i don't think the average voter sitting there riveted by the debate over debates. in certain ways if you are a democrat you should take comfort that this is the big issue that is dividing democrats when you look at what is going on on the
5:41 am
other side of the aisle. >> it would be interesting to see what happens when the race does come home here for the democrats to new york. >> i'm sure it will be gentile as new york races always are. >> get to see bernie from brooklyn for the first time. he will remind everybody of that. thank you very much. the op-ed getting a lot of wattage and deservedly so. >> mr. ax to you. >> one of the best nick names in the business. we have a big change to tell you about in the friendly skies. an airline merger we are going to tell you about coming up next on "new day."

5:51 am
>> first of all, it is good to be with you again, chris. i think both ted cruz and donald, particularly donald had a pretty bad week last week. he will have a bad wisconsin tomorrow. both need to understand it is a competitive engagement here. it isn't over until you get to 1,237. one might say the convention is actually halftime. both ought to man up. there are no short cuts to victory in the democratic process. john is going to compete up until and through the convention. i think there is a subtle concern that they haven't projected but they know very well because they look at their own polls, john kasich of the three is the only one to trump hillary in the general election. we ought to let the process play out. >> it is unusual. i don't think there is anything subtle about it. i think they both think there is concern if not against hillary
5:52 am
clinton, against them within their own party with people like yourself who represent the establishment and the elders of the gop. they may go to john kasich during the convention. how odd to see all of the races before the convention as somehow irrelevant. that is what it would mean for john kasich going in only having performed well in ohio and gets a whole fresh start at the convention. is that fair? >> i think when you are saying is it fair you are starting to sound like donald trump. bottom line is that the convention is the half way point in the process and you have this long grueling painful process individual candidates slugging it out to see if someone can hit the threshold. when you get to the convention and no one hits the threshold then they have to rethink who they want as their nominee. at the convention as you know because you covered them you
5:53 am
have a lot of congressmen, senators, party chair men there, a variety of people. a lot of worker bees. the worker bees and people involved in the day to day process are worried about local elections and the presidential election and they want the strongest possible candidate at the top of the ticket. right now according to national polls donald trump favors polls, person at the top of the ticket that does the best is john kasich. >> how do you make the case that he is the best nominee for the republican party when he doesn't win primaries. you look at wisconsin in new york and you know the governor is trailing well behind cruz and trump. >> i make the case a couple of different ways. i do realize that polls are just a snapshot i think they are a fairy telling snapshot he is the best candidate in the fall. it is the fall election and not the election and selection in cleveland.
5:54 am
secondly, if you take a look at the number of republicans who have voted in the primaries, while there have been record turnouts i would dare say you only have about 30% of the total registry showing up in the aggregate. those who haven't spoken during course of primaries want a victory in november and along with the victory they want to see their congressmen reelected, a lot of local and state officials reelected. a strong case to be made for john for the fall election. >> i hear that the team is gearing up for the convention. we probably at this point will be seeing you there, tom ridge. thank you for being with us on "new day." we look forward to your take on the run up. it does seem to be governor kasich's best shot so that is where all eyes are. thank you for joining us. >> nice to join you. >> always a pleasure. we have been talking politics all morning. it is monday morning.
