1:00 am
to turn things into gold. it's largely due to passion. you >> he never gives up. he's works harder and harder opinion and he's able to balance everything he's doing on the campaign trail with his business and also taking care of us and being such app amazing father. i think having those two qualities and us receiving so much love from him, even when he's so busy is an amazing quality to have. >> i think one of the things i've always been most inspired by in observing my father is the way that he really inspires others, the way at our company, at the trump organization, he will set a very aggressive, a very bold vision and then really help people find it, help people both unearth their own potential and also work together to achieving the vision that he's charted for the company. and i think watching him on this
1:01 am
platform also set an unbelievable bold vision, also really spearheads the conversation and really whether you agree with the platform or disagree with his policies on certain issues, the reality is he is guiding the conversation on both sides of the aisle, he's guiding the agenda and guiding the course that's been discussed the last ten months. that's what leadership is. now he's doing that across this country and it's really remarkable. >> melania, is there something you learned about him that you really didn't know? >> i knew his drive and i'm with him almost every day and i go through the good, bad and the ugly stuff and, you know, we going through it and he's strong, he's passionate, he's smart, he's tough and he's handling fantastic.
1:02 am
because he's passionate about the country. >> mr. trump, is there something you didn't know about yourself? >> well, i think something was reinforced tonight. i've known the most successful people in the world, many of them are very unhappy people, many of them you know, but many of them are unhappy people, and i've always said the most important thing is having a great family. the family is more important. to me the most successful, the people that seem to be the happiest are with a great family. you can see i have a wonderful family and it's been very important to me. i think it's been a real stabilizing factor. i don't think i would have had the kind of success i've had without my family. >> is business life tougher or political life? >> i think political life is more dishonest. i find the people in politics to be more dishonest. i think the business people are tougher. i think the people -- i know them all. we'll use some of these tough people to renegotiate our trade
1:03 am
deals, folks, believe me, i know the good once, i know the bad ones. and i know the overrated ones and the ones that are the best of all that are unheard . but we'll use the best. i think the business people are tougher but politicians are more deceptive. >> final question, do you really believe you're going to get to 1,237 or, in your heart, do you believe this is going to be an open convention? >> i think i'll get to 1,237. i think we're going to do very well in new york, and some of the states that we'll be in next. i think we should do really well in california. i think we'll get to the 1,237. look this has been an amaze process. i said at the beginning but i'll say it again, i'm spending my own money. i understand politicians, i understand what motivates them. the thing that motivates them are the special interests and their lobbyists. they won't do the right thing. the people that are really getting them are the people giving them money. by my not taking money from all these special interests, i'm
1:04 am
going to be able do the right thing for the people. they do so many bad deals and people think why are they so stupid? they're not stupid. they do it because they're told to do it by the people giving them money. that's why, whether it's ted cruz or others, i can tell you, they're not going to do the right thing for the country. and it just is the way politics works. and nobody knows the system better than i do. >> and you know how politics works, at the convention, if you are don't make it in the first round of voting, a lot of those delegates who have to vote for you in the first round, they're free go elsewhere. are you ready for that? >> sure, i'm ready for it. my life would be a lot easier. i just want to do something. the country, as my children have said, the country has been great to me. and i want to give back. if people want me to do that, i think i'll do a fantastic job for them. we'll bring the country back, we'll save social security. our country is in such trouble. people don't realize the trouble we're in. we're sitting on a bubble. our country is in trouble. i think i'd do a tremendous job.
1:05 am
>> i want to thank donald trump and his entire family. thank you all. malen malenia, thank you very much. tomorrow night ted cruz and his family. until then, thanks for watching. donald trump railing against the republican party late last night, telling cnn the rules are stacked against him to keep him from winning the nomination. new this morning, hillary clinton gaining more momentum and a big new endorsement in the democratic battle for new york. good morning. welcome to "early start." >> it's wednesday, april 13th. it's 4:00 a.m. in the east. overnight a biting, stinging, back and forth between donald trump and the republican national committee and it all started right here on cnn. trump says the party stacked the
1:06 am
rules against him. he made that accusation while appearing with his family at a cnn town hall. trump said the rnc changed the rules to keep him from the nomination, boy, was the rnc quick to respond. >> reporter: donald trump making no effort to mend fences with the republican party last night saying in our cnn town hall that he does not think the rnc wants him to win the nomination and he's bashing the nomination process along the way. >> you don't think the rnc wants you to get the nomination? >> i don't think so. >> you think they're actively working against you? >> i don't know. i don't see it. it's not like i have 15 miles of proof. but certainly they should want to have a vote of the people of colorado. the people of colorado -- i would have won. i won so many of the votes. i mean, the voting has been phenomenal. that's why i've won so many more states than ted cruz and kasich. >> all of this seemed to be a
1:07 am
bridge too far for the rnc chairman, he said nomination process known for a year and beyond. it's the responsibility of the campaign to understand it complaint now? give us all a break. this forum was a rare moment when he was sharing the spotlight, not competing for it he was joined with his wife and four children. they spoke about how he speaks to female voters, and ivanka trump says she doesn't see any issue with it, and she mentioned how she was raised along with her brothers on how females are treated equally. >> i have witnessed these incredible female role models that he's employed in the highest executive positions at the trump organization my entire life. and an industry that has been dominated by men, is still dominated by men but certainly was when he was starting out in his career and he was employing some of these women and raising them through the ranks. so, you know, for me, i think
1:08 am
the way he raised me, the way he raised tiffany, it's a testament to the fact that he believes in inspiring women, empowering women. he always taught me there wasn't anything i couldn't do. >> donald trump will be back on the campaign trail today but not in new york. he's taking a quick break from the empire state primary, flying over to pittsburgh for a rally. we'll see him later on this afternoon. back to you guys. >> in just hours ted cruz comes to new york for his cnn town hall. cruz has not spent much time campaigning in the state where he's in third place in two brand-new polls. his spokeswoman says the small events has held have been in unlikely places with few republicans. they're aiming at picking off a few delegates to block trump from degetting the nomination. on tuesday, cruz called trump a loser. >> donald is a very sore loser.
1:09 am
he doesn't handle losing well. he throws a fit. he's crying and screaming and yelling, and he insults people, he curses at people. and he attacks people. donald loves to call people a loser. donald wakes up at night in cold sweats that people will call him losin' donald. tonight ted cruz appears in the last of three cnn republican town halls. he and his wife heidi will answer voter questions. that's in new york at 9:00 p.m. only on cnn. >> a lot of use of the word loser there in a short period of time. house speaker paul ryan flatly ruling out a run for the presidency or at least trying to. ryan has been facing increased speculation about his plans and pleas from some republican leaders, clearly upset about the possibility that cruz or trump might win the nomination. they want ryan to parachute in as a late entrant into the race. but ryan said i do not want nor
1:10 am
will i accept the nomination of our party. >> so let me speak directly to the delegates on this. if no candidate has a majority in the first ballot i believe you should only choose from a person who is actually participated in the primary. count me out. >> breaking overnight, a major endorsement for hillary clinton, one week before the crucial new york primary. the new york daily news offering clinton heroic praise as it lays into bernie sanders who many say performed poorly with the daily news editorial board. they say they have a super prepared warrior realist. they have in opponent bernie sanders a fantasist who's passionate war with reality. hillary clinton focused on pay equity for women at a tuesday
1:11 am
roundtable. if talking about equal pay and paid leave and more opportunities for women and girls is playing the gender card, then deal me in. >> we go to the sanders campaign and the latest on the democratic race. >> hillary clinton is back in new york today. she's campaigning once again for that new york primary next week. now, she took a bit of a detour from the campaign trail to florida on tuesday where she held three fund-raisers to raise primary money for this campaign. she still needs to fill coffers in this longer than expected race against bernie sanders. bernie sanders took an opportunity to tell voters in new york about how secretary clinton makes her money. >> during the last filing period, her largest super pac reported raising $25 million from special interests including 15 million from wall street. does anybody seriously believe
1:12 am
that you can be an agent of change if you are taking money from the most powerful special interests in this country? >> campaign finances is just one of the many issues and differences between these two candidates. they're really going back and forth over guns, wall street, over fracking, over who's prepared to be president. this is one day before the democratic debate in brooklyn. their first face-to-face debate in five weeks. that's why it's so important here. bernie sanders knows he needs to turn those big crowds he's been getting into actual votes and supporters. that's why that debate tomorrow in brooklyn, so important. just day away from the cnn democratic presidential debate in brooklyn. hillary clinton and bernie sanders in a critical faceoff. the last time before the new york primary. that's tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. eastern here on cnn. joining us now for an early
