3:00 am
handgun was found inside smith's suv. >> he did not get out with a gun. >> this is "new day", with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> good morning to you. welcome to "new day". it is wednesday, april 13th, 6:00 in the east. donald trump has a new obsession. losing. in the cnn town hall last night, trump kept bashing the gop for tracking the deck against him. the question, why would trump alien ate the party he needs now? >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders battling it out in new york. we have this covered only the way cnn can. let's begin with michelle
3:01 am
kaczynski. >> we had donald trump repeatedly kicking things off by saying things are stacked against him. we heard him utter the words make america great again and so presidential as well. this was a donald trump that was calm, collected, not yelling, not using any hair-raising words. and we heard his children refer to him as selfless. >> you don't think the rnc wants you to get the nomination? >> no, i don't think so. >> reporter: republican front-runner donald trump calling out the republican national committee, accusing them of conspireing to deny him delegates. >> i won louisiana. i won it easily. >> the popular vote. >> the popular vote. because of all the shenanigans that goes on. >> they are the rules. didn't you know the rules? >> i know the rules very well. but i know that it's stacked against me by the establishment.
3:02 am
>> trump alleging the republican party is "100% controlled by the rnc" and that rules were changed to stop him. >> they changed the rules a number of months ago. >> eight months ago. >> well, that's not very long ago. >> but you had time to prepare. >> they saw how i was doing and they didn't like it. >> the trump family later joining the candidate on stage. trump's daughters taking on critics saying trump is disrespectful to women. >> he always taught me there wasn't anything i couldn't do. >> both pointing to their upbring as evidence of an equal opportunity father and business mogul. >> my father, since i've been a little girl, always inspired me and had so much faith in me to be the best woman i can be. >> trump admitting when it comes
3:03 am
to debates, his family wishes he would lighten up. >> they are always saying be nicer on the debates. they're coming at me from all these angles. but melania said be nicer in the debates. i can't do that. i have to win first. >> there comes a time where being nice, trying to do all this stuff. when people are laughing in your face, you have to fight back. that's what's so important about what he does. >> trump's wife melania pushing her husband to act more presidential. >> how would you like him to be different? >> just to use nice language sometimes. >> better language? >> not all the time. sometimes i agree. >> somebody yelled out something. >> and he repeated it. i was thinking just don't repeat it. because next day the press all they talk is about the word, inappropriate word. and that was correct.
3:04 am
in and on changing his tone, trump says he can switch it up any time. >> it's easy to do it. it's easier to do it than the way i behave right now. i have two more people i have to take out. >> but when it comes to the retweeting that sparked his recent war of wives last month with ted cruz, trump says, yes, it's the retweets that usually get him in hot water and it's all his undoing. >> during the evenings, after 7:00, i will always do it by myself. >> do you ever want to say put the mobile device down? it's 2:00 a.m. and you are still tweeting. >> if only he would listen. i did it many times. i say, okay, do whatever you want. he's an adult. he knows the consequences. >> he's just always had so much love for us and his whole family. he's an amazing guy. maybe my best friend in the
3:05 am
entire world. >> one burning question is trump's family mortified ever by some of the tweets, by some of the things that he said? they pretty much laughed it off. you heard melania say she's given up at this point trying to change things. his son said this is what makes donald trump donald trump he doesn't hold back. he's a fighter. they describe that as refreshing compared to some of the more studied response to things. as for a response about the rnc stacking things, nomination process known for a year and beyond. it is the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. complaints now? give us all a break. >> there you go. michelle, thanks so much for giving us all of that background. they don't is seem mortified. they don't like all the tweeting always. >> i don't know. i think they're all for it. >> maybe that's their new line.
3:06 am
house speaker paul ryan trying to end speculation that he has white house ambitions. he said he doesn't want neuer will he accept the gop nomination if he is push forward during a contested convention. does his actions leave any wiggle room? manu. paul ryan was forced to make the nounment because the chatter at a deadlock republican convention could choose him as a nominee started undermine his two main jobs. one raising money for house republicans and keeping the majority and creating a policy agenda distinctive from what we are seeing on a presidential race. his other job, chairman of convention, ironing out disputes between heated campaigns. yesterday he made clear there is absolutely no circumstance in which he would be the nominee. if no candidate has a majority on the first ballot, i believe
3:07 am
you should only choose from a person who is actually participated in the primary. count me out. i simply believe that if you want to be the nominee for our party, to be the president, you should actually run for it. >> now, the gop convention that ryan is chairing could certainly be a messy one. senators in tough reelections and jeb bush won't attend. but ryan wants them to write a rule saying only people who run for president can be the nominee. we'll see if they listen to him and do just that. >> manu raju, thank you. a lot to discuss. david gregory and ron brownstein and jackie kucinich. jackie, let me start with you. what would be the actual merits
3:08 am
of the allegation of donald trump? we'll get to why he is saying it, whether it's good or bad. but they changed the rules and they did it because they didn't like how i was doing. what rules could he point to that were changed that could lead to that suggestion. not one? >> okay, fine, last year they changed the rules. but without donald trump in mind. so the idea they changed the rules somehow predicting that donald trump would be in this position is a little far-fetched frankly. he's upset. this is a very complicated process. it differs state by state. i can see the confusion. but the idea that there was some malfeasance going on, it's not true. >> he's winning in the polls. he's winning in the delegates. colorado notwithstanding in new
3:09 am
york, he's running away with it at the moment. so why is he so upset? >> preemptive rationalization. he is certainly laying the groundwork for a case if he is denied the nomination that it was stolen. the goal is to win the nomination. and if you fall short of the pledged delegates you're going to need some of the people that you are accusing of participating in a rigged system to be for you. it is a little mystifying. it fits with the us against them way of framing every issue and may energize his supporters. ultimately, you have to say it looks counterproductive if in fact, he has to persuade some delegates. >> this is like a geico commercial. if this is donald trump, this is what you do. if he is in a contest like this where it looks like he may not get it, why not run hard against
3:10 am
the rules, the party and make ted cruz look like the ultimate insider in this process and trump doubles down on what makes him outside. i think there is a method to what he's doing. he's finally belatedly putting in place a team, a very establishment insider team to be able to negotiate if you fall short at 1237. so he is winning. he's still in a very good position to get close to what he needs. it could still be game over. >> yet this does seem to be the most crucial moment for trump. he has created a combination of factors now that could either help hip on or hurt him. i've been talking to guys who do a lot of business with him. they're in his ear. they say this was our ear all along. he never had the organization behind him. he's the big sell. when his businesses have gotten in trouble, it's when he was actually running them. because he didn't have the
3:11 am
infrastructure around it to get it done. >> he's not a details guy. we definitely established this. at the beginni it was can donald trump get these voters who love him out to the polls. he definitely has had some success there. going forward, this just gets more complicated. this is chess, not checkers. and the fact that he has a bunch of guys who didn't know what they were doing, he was pulling resources from states like florida and other states instead of having people there in the infrastructure to make sure they get the delegates they need. it lays bear they didn't know the game they were playing. >> he did not want to run a traditional campaign. he wasn't interested in the machinery of the campaign. this is the king kong of politics. get up on the empire state building and say i'm here. i'm going to win. then he stumbled and realized i have to put some pieces in place
3:12 am
to run in a more traditional way. >> previous front-runners, by the time they reach this point in the campaign, were ascending toward 50% of the vote consistently. john mccain is hit 50% or more to drive mike huckabee in the race. trump has the biggest piece of the party but stuck at 35% to 40%. yes, he will do better in new york. but he has not reached 50%. if he had grown to that level, they would have been in a better position to survive. >> weren't the changes made meant to help the front-runner. >> he pointed out about florida. >> but he has not -- this would not be happening if trump was not stuck as a plurality front-runner. >> it was a different style than what we saw with kasich's daughters who said our dad is
3:13 am
embarrassing. he can't dance. he tells corny jokes. we saw his children who seemed to be i think sticking on message more. he's the best father. he was the best role model. he would make the best president. what does this do for voters? does that sway anybody? >> it shows he has strong family behind him. there were strong moments between him and ivanka. she has been his best surrogate. and melania. there were some moments. what do you do for fun? work. >> there was a moment at one of the town halls -- it may have been in ohio -- where a woman got up and said why can't you be more like your kids? again, last night, he does seem -- the family does seem to have a genuine bond of affection. >> there's only one risk that
3:14 am
comes out. i'm never a fan of exposing families to own what the candidate does. >> sure. >> but all of this suggestion that this isn't who he is, this isn't who he is. i don't know what that means to the voter who is already in his camp. the worst of him is an act. >> he was asked about tone. he had i could be nicer. he gave a little bit of the arms. but i've got two guys to take out. so it's almost like this is an act to win. i think that doesn't ring as true. >> panel, stick around. a lot more to talk about. senator ted cruz and wife heidi will be talk to go anderson cooper. they will take questions in a cnn town hall. join us at 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. michaela. to the democrats now. bernie sanders sharpening his aing tas on hillary clinton ahead of tomorrow night's high
3:15 am
stakes in brooklyn. we are six days from the primary. chris frates is here with more this morning. >> good morning. the bernie sanders campaign continues to hammer away at hillary clinton. one of her attacks was rated mostly false by a fact checker. just yesterday sanders criticized clinton's vote for the iraq war. >> secretary clinton was then a united states senator from your state, from new york state. she heard -- she listened to the same arguments from bush and cheney. her judgment was faulty. she voted for that disastrous war. >> now, what's interesting is clinton's camp said it will not hurt her with democrats he is manufacturing bullets that republicans will fire at her in
3:16 am
the fall. they know republicans will likely attack her character. now they can do it using sanders's own words. now they are focusing on the general election. she left the campaign trail to fund raise in florida as an increasing attacking republicans. she returns with a fresh endorsement from the new york daily news. and a massive rally don't in new york. >> we are hours away from hillary clinton and bernie sanders facing off in a cnn presidential debate in brooklyn. it is the first time they have shared the debate stage in five weeks. the last time before the new york primary. that's tomorrow night 9:00 eastern right here on cnn. alisyn. >> michaela, paul ryan count me out. anyone buying it?

3:19 am
certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, she's been there for me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at namendaxr.com. they're lovin' their vegetables. this is huge news! it's all thanks to our birds eye chef's favorites side dishes perfectly sauced or seasoned. what are you..? shh! i'm live tweeting. oh, boy. birds eye. so veggie good. don't let dust and allergies get and life's beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. most allergy pills only control one inflammatory substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. flonase changes everything. wiback like it could used to? neutrogena hydro boost water gel. with hyaluronic acid it plumps skin cells with intense hydration and locks it in. for supple, hydrated skin.

3:21 am
only choose from a person who has actually participated in the primary. count me out. >> that was house speaker paul ryan hoping that his words would end all the speculation about him being drafted at a contested convention ased republican nominee. so how convincing were those words? let's bring back ron brownstein, jackie kucinich and david gregory. to my trained ears, it sounds like he does not want it. was there more than met the ear? >> no. i think that was no and i mean it. he told people all along this is not his year.
3:22 am
that is not his year. first of all, if he were to come in such an establishment figure, he would have a hard time winning. he's 45 years old. we were talking about this. he has young kids. does not want to give up that time. at 45, he has an opportunity to really build the party, build himself and run later. he is also in a position as speaker of the house to have a huge role in terms of domestic policy. and i think he wants to try to frame an agenda for house republicans, even if it's at odds with a nominee that might be trump. >> he is pro immigration, pro trade. his signature arrival were to cut entitle thes. all of which trump is on the opposite side they are trying to move beyond trump or cruz or
3:23 am
kasich. who wants to be that person. this is probably a pretty good day for democrats. a lot worry the most about paul ryan not kind of battered by this campaign. maybe nikki haley as vice president. that would have been a strong ticket. that does now seem to be off the table. >> we're talking about july. that is like 17 years away in this election, given how rapid the cycle has been with the ups and downs. who would you rather it be other than paul ryan? plus, no matter who it is, whether cruz or trump, jackie, he's the one who will be the standard for the party. cruz isn't going to be able to have a big part of a gop in congress, wanting to rally to his side. who would you rather be? >> we have to remember paul ryan is not going back eating grapes. he has a tough job as speaker of the house. >> sure. >> he is supposed to have a budget passed in two days. that's not going to happen
3:24 am
because there is so much resistance within his party. while he cast himself as uniter, he has yet to do it. >> you can't do it when you're in a party cataclysm. >> of course. he has to get a team. he may recruit some of his team to be in the republican party. you're absolutely right. he he in a lot of ways is in a better position, who are going to have a very divided convention as they stand up on the podium. >> what happens if they, one on of them, as looks like will happen, does become the nominee? paul ryan is running a parallel policy campaign against donald trump. then what happens if trump is the nominee? >> there becomes something of a fight. there has to be some melding in terms of policy principles. he is something of an independent power base. he does not have is to carry the water for the administration all the time on the issues that he disagrees with.
3:25 am
he has his own power base that he can or may not be able to deliver. >> the person who is boosting paul ryan the most by implication is trump. >> yeah. >> the only way you factor in paul ryan. otherwise, trump winds up being the nominee. that takes us to the convention. now there is this other suggestion, i'm not going. what do you make of this? jeb bush, not going. so what. the other players -- >> it reflects the larger challenge. you have seven republican senate seats being defended this year in states that voted both times for president obama. what we have seen in modern politics, it's becoming harder and harder for parties to win senate seats in states that usually vote the other way for president. republicans have so many because the last time they ran in 2010. it was older, whiter, very tilted toward the republicans.
3:26 am
they are trying to distance themselves from the ticket. certainly illinois. pennsylvania is not going to be easy. all can be tough. but what i can say is you can run but you can't hide. you are now linked to them. over 85% of the people usually they vote the same for senate as they do for president in a contested race. that is a reality. whether they're in cleveland or on the beach in july. >> all politics is local. >> not so much anymore. >> no one likes their family to be seen fighting. this is going to happen on live tv. not hing someone like kelly on the floor sort of going like this is probably good for her. >> you have to be tied into the party. if you're rob portman in ohio, you have to tie into the party itself. trump in ohio, for example, is a weak candidate. if he's 45%, it becomes difficult for the incumbent to
3:27 am
win if the top is 45%. you have to rely on a number of tickets. very hard to pull off. >> going to be a fascinating convention whatever happens. panel, thank you. alisyn, we have dramatic events. investigators say they found a loaded handgun in the nfl's car. the man accused of killing him insists it was smith who was the aggressor. we'll have a live report next. to benefit from different points of view. and by consistently breaking apart risk to focus on long-term value. we actively manage with expertise and conviction. so you can invest with more certainty. mfs. that's the power of active management.

casings. the fact that it was there is when what witnesses have been saying. another issue that's been brought forward is whether or not alcohol may have played a role. will smith and his wife were out with friends just before all of this happened. i talked to the manager of the restaurant. she doesn't buy the alcohol theory. take a listen. >> they had $400 worth of sushi. a little bit of red wine. no one was impaired from drinking. no symptom pelling, slurred speech, loud or obnoxious behavior in the restaurant. everyone seemed like they were fine. they were going to go on to another location. >> the weapon inside of smith's car does complicate things. it takes this case from what many thought was road rage to stand your ground. in louisiana they have a stand your ground law. on top of that, you have no duty to retreat.

the big new york primary. so what does all of this mean for the state of play on the democratic side? we have communications director for the dnc, the democratic national committee, louis moran. >> thanks for having me on. >> what do you think the chances are that you have an open convention? >> i don't think we will get to that. this will be settled well before the convention. part of what gets lost here is 85% of the delegates are won biff caucuses and primaries. i'm confident we will have a very exciting rest of the primary. this is where it gets exciting. we will get to the convention united. >> you don't think it will be contested. >> absolutely. >> it seems to be the stage of divergence. they are moving farther apart not closer together.

3:40 am
superdelegates. the people supporting bernie, looking at the gop side of the race to see whether it is rigged because they keep hearing that from donald trump, look at the superdelegates and say why. why does this party have all of these people who just get to pick who they want. they wind up having a huge number of insiders taking away the mandate from the people. that's the perception. how do you defend it? >> that's a great question. 85% of the delegates are at stake when you vote, when you participate at a caucus. 85% are determined that way. so that's the number. that's essentially it. we want somebody a school teacher in florida or ohio say i would love to be a delegate and be able to run and compete to become a delegate. so by having the unpledged delegates category, you take elected officials out of it so that individual who wants to run can do so without running
3:41 am
against their member of congress or governor. that makes a huge difference. when you see it this july in philadelphia you will see our convention looks like america. it is people from all walks of life. it is people who represent different ages. we have a 17-year-old delegate in 2008 who will be 18 at the time of the election. >> the perception is they are picked by the party. are you saying that's true? >> they have been elected to represent people. even dnc numbers are running to represent their states at the democratic parties. they do represent people. but what we want is for grassroots to be able to run and become delegates. the way you do that is not to compete against an official. >> do you have any concerns about the trajectory of the race right now? yes, it started out let's do all of these ideas and do it the nice way. >> now it's crunch time.

♪ stkpwhraoeut was a tprufpl family affair last night cnn's town hall. his wife and children fielding questions from new york voters. did the gop front-runner sway any minds? well, we have two new yorkers who actually asked questions last night. joseph and arlene who join us here in studio. good morning. busy day for both of you. and exciting. i understand it's the first time you had the opportunity to do this sort of thing. and, joe, i understand that you actually found your vote has been swayed. >> it has. last night i saw donald trump in a different light.
3:55 am
i saw how he interacted with his children. and being the father of three girls, i just want to give a shout tout to mila, emily. i saw a different side. >> the interaction was enough to sway your vote? >> it was. because being a republican and tending to be more conservative and being from staten island, i agree with a lot of the positions that donald has taken. i also feel that home is very important. that's why the question i asked, at times, do you think it's better or easier to get more with honey than vinegar. >> can we play the question? >> sure. >> let's listen to your own words. >> well, first of all, mr. trump, i respect you tremendously. >> thank you. >> as a businessman but more importantly as a father. and you swayed me tonight. >> oh, great.
3:56 am
thank you. >> my question for you, don, is what have you learned as the greatest experience as a businessman from your father and do you think that sometimes tone is important and you get more with honey than with vinegar, so to speak? >> did you get your answer. >> yes. afterward. >> what did he say? >> he said he heard about tone working for his father's company for all the years. he saw how he interacted with different sexes, different cultures and that tone is very important. but at times you need to be outspoken. and i think at this point of time in the country, especially for the republican party, the two front-runners, are both outsiders. they're against the establishment. so from a republican point of view it's very important how that message gets across. >> if you changed your mind, where were you before this?
3:57 am
>> i was leaning towards donald. i do like some of the positions that ted cruz has stood for. as the campaign unfolded, i didn't like where it was going. >> arlene, we'll phraeu your question and then you can give us a sense of where you are. >> good evening, mr. trump. i was wondering do you talk to your wife and children the same way that you speak at the gop debates? >> the same way? i think i'm much nicer to them. >> that speaks to what joe is talking about this idea of tone. was it something that bothered you going into the debate and you wanted to find out where his head was at? >> you wonder if someone with this type of personality can turn it off at times. it was reassuring to me that he said he was nicer to his family rather than what we have seen at the debates despite all the
3:58 am
incendiary remarks he has made. >> they wouldn't thereby. >> he looked a little stumped. like my family? >> i think he was caught off guard. i think it was a question he wasn't expecting. it was a response that i wasn't expecting either. i thought maybe he would say he was a disciplinarian. it was reassuring. he is a father, husband, grandfather as well. >> as people get to know him, he constantly says, look, i'm doing this because it's working for me right now. i can be the most presidential, the nicest. how does that play in your mind? if you and i were doing a deal and you said i'm only doing this to get this deal, i would be dead to you. why is this work something. >> there is so much outrage in the country. republican voters feel the party has left them.
3:59 am
we had the majority in congress. but what are we doing with that majority? how are we promoting the platform of the republican party? and it's not really more about the social issues anymore. it's about the economic issues and what's important. and at the end of the day it's about all of us having more money spend on our family, on our children. and the tone. that's why standout is very important. donald trump is is the only candidate that is confirmed to come out to brunch this sundayment the other candidates have not. >> we want to make sure to get another question to you. have you changed your mind? last night hearing him speak, did it sway you, or are you still where you were when you came out? >> i would love to hear tonight's town hall and the rest of the week. when you see them talk amongst their family it gives a
4:00 am
different perspective. >> let us know if and when you change your mind. great to have both of you. if you want to give us your take, you watched last night. you have opinions as well. tweet us, post on facebook.com/newday. following a lot of news on this wednesday including speaker ryan making it clear he does not want to be the presidential nominee. let's get to it. >> these are trick sters. >> candidate wallowed in the mud. >> the republican party was 100% controlled by the rnc. >> they saw how i was doing and didn't like it. >> i do not want neuer will i accept the nomination for our party. >> what we need is leadership that has the courage to stand up. >> bernie sanders has had trouble answering the questions.
4:01 am
>> campaign and within without being dependent on wall street. >> we're going to keep reaching out and helping people. that's who we are. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota, and michaela pereira. >> good morning, everyone. welcome back to your "new day". i see you sneaking in from the other side of the studio. that doesn't trip me up. the front-runner bashing the gop for stacking the deck against him, accusing the party of conspireing to stop him from becoming the nominee. the party's chairman not having it, firing back after the cnn town hall. >> boy, oh, boy, for the democrats the timing could not be better tomorrow night. bernie sanders and hillary clinton talking a lot of smack. money ties, confidence, integrity. it is personal and getting ugly. what happens today? lucky for you we have the election covered the only way cnn can with michelle kaczynski. >> getting ugly?
4:02 am
it's been ugly for quite a while. >> i'm going to make it an active process. >> it still has more to go. >> that's right. >> they're thinking is this going to be exactly what you would expect from family members or a bizarre-o world look at each candidate. here you have donald trump can kicking things off. yes, he did utter make america great again and so presidential. but then you have donald trump in this venue subdued, letting others pe others speak. >> you don't think they want you to get the rnc. >> no.
4:03 am
>> reporter: republican front-runner donald trump calling out the republican national committee, accusing them of conspiring to deny him delegates. >> i won louisiana. i won it easily. >> the popular vote. >> the popular vote. because of all the shenanigans that goes on. >> they are the rules. didn't you know the rules? >> i know the rules very well. but i know that it's stacked against me by the establishment. >> trump alleging the republican party is "100% controlled by the rnc" and that rules were changed to stop him. >> they changed the rules a number of months ago. >> eight months ago. >> but you had time to prepare. >> they saw how i was doing and they didn't like it. >> the trump family later joining the candidate on stage. trump's daughters taking on critics saying trump is disrespectful to women.
4:04 am
>> he always taught me there wasn't anything i couldn't do. >> both pointing to their upbring as evidence of an equal opportunity father and business mogul. >> my father, since i've been a little girl, always inspired me and had so much faith in me to be the best woman i can be. >> trump admitting when it comes to debates, his family wishes he would lighten up. >> they are always saying be nicer on the debates. they're coming at me from all these angles. but melania said be nicer in the debates. i can't do that. i have to win first. >> there comes a time where being nice, trying to do all this stuff. when people are laughing in your face, you have to fight back. that's what's so important about what he does. >> trump's wife melania pushing her husband to act more presidential. >> how would you like him to be different? >> just to use nice language sometimes. >> better language? >> not all the time.
4:05 am
sometimes i agree. >> somebody yelled out something. >> and he repeated it. i was thinking just don't repeat it. because next day the press all they talk is about the word, inappropriate word. and that was correct. and on changing his tone, trump says he can switch it up any time. >> it's easy to do it. it's easier to do it than the way i behave right now. i have two more people i have to take out. >> but when it comes to the retweeting that sparked his recent war of wives last month with ted cruz, trump says, yes, it's the retweets that usually get him in hot water and it's all his undoing. own doing. >> during the evenings, after 7:00, i will always do it by myself. >> do you ever want to say put the mobile device down? it's 2:00 a.m. and you are still tweeting. >> if only he would listen. i did it many times. i say, okay, do whatever you want. he's an adult. he knows the consequences.
4:06 am
>> but it's the special bond they say they all have with their father that trumps it all. >> he's just always had so much love for us and his whole family. he's an amazing guy. one of my best friends in the entire world. maybe my best friend in the entire world. >> they pretty much laugh off his more controversial tweets. he is genuine. he's a fighter. i thought it was interesting how does trump tweet? he shouts it out to one of the young ladies in his office. and there is, by the way, a tweet rebuttal this morning coming from the republican party. reince priebus saying it is the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. complaints now? give us all a break. >> that's interesting. we didn't know there was a tweet catcher that has to type it up as he shouts it out. >> terrible job. >> i was going to suggest we
4:07 am
need one on "new day". >> i don't like your face. i don't like -- >> paul ryan is trying to end speculation that he has white house ambitions. telling reporters, count me out of the 2016 race, saying he will not accept the republican nomination in a contested convention. manu raju is live with more. count them out he says. >> paul ryan has said he won't run for president nearly two dozen times. but the chatter over what may happen can become a major distraction from his two main jobs. raising money to keep the house majority. a fund-raising binge of 20 events in the next eight weeks. chairman of the convention when he wants to be seen is a fair arbiter of any disputes. he wanted to make clear there would be no circumstance in which he would be the nominee. >> if no candidate has a
4:08 am
majority on the first ballot, i believe you should only choose from a person who has actually participated in the primary. count me out. i simply believe that if you want to be the nominee for our party, to be the president, you should actually run for it. >> a number of republicans tell me they will not attend. jeb bush told me he would skip the convention. ryan wants delegates to limit distention by writing a rule saying only people who run for president can be the nominee. we will see, alisyn, if they do just that. >> manu, thanks so much for all that background. let's talk about something that donald trump has been saying a lot in the past week. is the system rigged against him? let's bring in co-chair of his new york campaign, joseph per
4:09 am
relly. >> i think donald trump tried to make a case that it was stacked last night. what is the rnc doing to dissuade people that it's not. you have donald trump consistent winning in vote counts and being denied delegates. >> yet he's winning in the delegate counts. he's winning. here. let me show you the latest. donald trump has 758. kasich 145. let me show you the latest polls for what's happening in the new york primary. donald trump is so far out ahead in this latest new york one poll. donald trump has 60%. look at that. over his rivals. kasich, 17%. ted cruz 14%. it mirrors the quinnipiac poll. 55%. how is this system stacked against this guy? >> it is stacked against him if he's winning is and still being denied delegates. in new york you will see a huge
4:10 am
win by donald trump. colorado had a wacky system. it was their system. they decided on it a long time ago. let's hear what donald trump has said about that system. >> they changed the rules a number of months ago. the people -- >> eight months ago. >> well, that's not very long ago. >> you had a lot of time -- >> they changed the rules because they saw how i was doing and they didn't like it. >> he said they changed it months ago because he was winning. rhines priebus says no. he had the nomination process known for a year and beyond is the responsibility of the campaign to understand it. complaints now? give us all a break.
4:11 am
so are we not to believe reince priebus? >> people have this assumption they should be able to vote and their vote actually should matter, whether it be in colorado or elsewhere. >> he is not saying somebody did something illegal, but he's close to it. he's calling it a dirty trick. let me play for you how he defines it. >> this was a dirty trick. these are dirty tricksters. and i'll tell you why. the rnc, the republican national committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for lawing this kind of crap to happen. i can tell you that. they should be ashamed of themselves in dirty trick. is this a dirty trick, anything that has happened in colorado or beyond? >> beyond. look at south carolina and other states where donald trump won all the delegates.
4:12 am
however, staeld of having people that will go to convention that are wholeheartedly supporting donald trump, you have people going there disin genuinely supporting other candidates. >> this is system. delegates can be courted by other people. >> this is the system. and i think the hiring of paul manafort will change the tone and the direction the campaign is is going in. that makes up for problems that the campaign may have had. that said, it goes back to fundamentals. people believe their vote should count for something. that's the frustrating part. that's why this is not necessarily helping ted cruz. >> i'm going to get to ted cruz in a minute. as a politician, you're on the new york city council. you understand how you have to curry favor with your own party. do you think that donald trump calling out the rnc like this, calling them dirty trick sisters, do you think that's a winning strategy? >> i'll answer with a question. do you think it's a good strategy for the rnc to be part
4:13 am
of not dissuading people but not trying to undermine the front-runner? >> what makes you think they're doing that? >> it seems to me you see in state after state where donald trump has won delegates he has seemed to not get the delegates wholeheartedly supporting him. >> because those are the rules. >> those are the rules. i'll give you that. i'm not saying anyone is doing anything illegal. people have an expectation when they vote for someone, they have a delegate pledged to that person. >> do you think he called out and insulted the rnc? >> 52% believes if he goes with the most delegates he should be the nominee. that's the scenario that will happen. what if he gets to 1200? should he not be the nominee then? a lot of republicans take the position that i do, that he
4:14 am
ought to be. >> donald trump has been calling ted cruz lying ted cruz. yesterday he came up with his own term called losing donald. >> donald is a very sore loser. he doesn't handle losing well. and he throws a fit. donald is panicking. he is scared. donald loves to call people a loser. donald wakes up in the middle of the night in sweats fearing that people will call him losing donald. >> he sounded creepy there. what happens when he has this tremendous victory in new york. a week later he wins in fourth northeastern states by big margins where 172 are at stake.
4:15 am
>> joseph, thank you for coming on "new day". good talking to you. ted cruz and wife heidi, 9:00 p.m. eastern, right here on cnn. chris. all right. hillary clinton and bernie sanders, the other side of the race, tearing each other down as well ahead of tomorrow night's critical debate. clintoning insisting the vermont senator has lost his compass. cnn's chris frates counting down the hours before the big brooklyn showdown. hello, my man. >> hey. good morning, chris. bernie sanders's campaign continues to hammer away at hillary clinton, taking a hit at her credibility.
4:16 am
>> secretary clinton was the senator from your state. new york state. she heard. she listened to the same arguments from bush and cheney. her judgment was faulty. she voted for that disastrous war. >> now, what's interesting is clinton's camp tells me they're not concerned the attacks will hurt her with democrats. the word that he is manufacturing bullets that republicans will fire at her in the fall. and republicans will likely attack her character. now they can do it using sanders's own words. she left the campaign trail yesterday to fund raise in florida and is increasingly attacking republicans. she returns with an endorsement from the new york daily news. sanders will hold a massive rally in washington square park
4:17 am
tonight. >> chris, great to have you here with us. the fbi paid a one-time fee to professional hackers to break into that iphone of one of the san bernardino terrorists according to a report in the "washington post". james comey said the government purchased a tool from a third party to unlock the device. it was widely reported that the israeli firm cellbrite was involved. police set up a perimeter outside the global headquarters of the firm in panama city as investigators entered the building looking for evident of money laundering and tax statements. it said it nothing wrong. it only set up accounts and were not involved in how they were used >> terrifying moments at a prep school in mississippi.
4:18 am
a few men mopping up minor flooding during heavy rains and the ceiling gave way. gallons of water blasting out the doorway. no one hurt. that's the good news. but the school is dealing with major water damage to the gym, lobby, and basketball court. >> it does sudden isly give way. i had that minor happen at my home out in california. standing water gave way in the middle of the night and scared the life out of me. thankfully it wasn't as bad as that. but it does suddenly give way. thanks goodness nobody was hurt there. the democratic presidential race taking on a tougher he tone as bernie sanders's momentum builds. is an open convention in the cards for the dems? and should hillary clinton be concerned? we will hear from team clinton next. the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, the lowest taxes in decades, and new infrastructure for a new generation

powerful people in this country and then claim to be an agent of change. >> sparks have long been flying on the republican side of the campaign this year. but now hillary clinton and bernie sanders are slinging it pretty good as well. what's triggered the personal attacks? is this about crunch time, the new state of play? let's discuss the impact on the hillary campaign from what you just heard there. senior adviser for hillary for america. good to have you here, jeremy. what goes through your mind when you hear senator sanders make that charge? >> i think the biggest thing i think is i do wish he would go back to the pledge he made earlier in the campaign that he would run a campaign about issues and not of personal attacks. i hope we will see that the rest of the primary back to the campaign around the issues. >> why isn't that an issue, whether or not you are compromised by your contacts, by the money that is driving your campaign. that's real.
4:24 am
>> what's real, and you will see this tomorrow night, i think at the debate in brooklyn. i think you will see both candidates getting back to a real debate about the issues, about where we want to take this country. and i think those are real conversations to have. real conversations about our policy positions and the difference between the two candidates. i think you see that tomorrow night. >> look, you were known as the field general. takes money. where do you get that money. it becomes a big concern. money in the game is a big concern. everybody says it. nobody wants to unilaterally disarm. clinton will be uniquely burdened on that issue now against sanders. and in a general election if she's the nominee. so it's not going to go away. >> when you look at her in the general, and she will be the democratic nominee you will see a large, large contribution coming to grassroots.
4:25 am
you will see what's fueling her campaign. >> the simple argument, how do you make the case that you can be an agent of change so you can go against the interests when you have taken money from them? that's the paradox. >> you look at her record at first lady, secretary of state. when you look at her record, she has fought for working families. you look at the primary in new york, the economic development record she had as senator around communities like bull. that is a strong record. that's the blueprint she will take to the white house. >> they are booing when he makes references about hillary clinton. how do you get those millennials activated? how do you get the people back? >> i don't think it's a question
4:26 am
of getting them back. >> the millennials. let's take them one at a time. hillary clinton has won in important states, ohio, nevada, virginia, north carolina. you'll see i think as it comes together, the those folks who have voted for him come together and look at what the choice is is in the general election. you have been talking a lot about the republican side. that choice couldn't be more clear. that's how you will get people coming together. >> any chance at a unity ticket? >> i don't know about that. >> is it a possibility? >> i don't know about that. >> this might go until june after the california primary. but i think what you will see is a coming together of the grassroots on both sides coming
4:27 am
together, the candidates coming together as we unite against what could be a trump or cruz ticket. >> approximate what do you think we're going to see tomorrow night? >> a lively debate. i hope it will be on the policy issues and not in the character attack. >> but integrity matters. money matters. it's not fiscal policy, true. but they are real issues. they always are. clinton will bring them up for whoever she is opposed to. >> if you look back to all the different debates since this started and you compare them to the republican side, i think you will see debates on that tomorrow in brooklyn. >> when you see what he has been leveling especially on issues like the qualified, which is just not true. if you look at her record as
4:28 am
secretary of state, senator -- >> he said he was responding to you guys. the campaign came out saying bernie sanders isn't qualified. he said if i'm not qualified, then she's not qualified and here's why. do you really think he started it? >> i don't thiknow where he got that information. you will see tomorrow and continually throughout the primary a spirited debate that kind of party we will coming in the general election. >> appreciate you making the case. i know we're all excited for tomorrow night. we'll see what happens. thank you for making the case as always. >> all right. we're hours away from bernie sanders and hillary clinton facing off. if it seems like i'm hyping it, it's because i am. they haven't been face-to-face in over a month. new york matters in a way in this race that it has not in my lifetime. this is a big deal. they will be face-to-face tomorrow night.

4:34 am
donald trump and the pursuit of success. great to see both of you. you both know a lot about donald trump and his family. let's talk about what you saw last night. one of the interesting dynamics was that his two daughters were on stage. we have seen ivanka often. we have gotten used to her. but then tiffany, his daughter with marla maples was there. what do we know about their relationship? >> they have a close relationship. she was raised in california and he wasn't present during her upbringing. they're very close. she called. he took the call during the interview. she gives him a lot of credit. >> she does. she said he's the best father, the best husband. her mary, marla maples had a
4:35 am
famously ugly split, breakup. it's interesting to hear her say he's a good husband. >> they have gotten to a good place. and marla, who i also have interviewed, said they repaired the relationship to a certain degree and they are in an amicable place for the sake of tiffany. i suppose you get credit for that. >> what did you see on stage? >> i saw classic trump speak. it is all donald all the time. so the family will coalesce around him and push both the businesses and now the campaign. i took everything with a grain of salt. if you were raised in this family, you would have complicated feelings about their growing up. >> they do. why do they circle the wagon so much for her?
4:36 am
>> come on. this is a billionaire, right? you're the heirs to this huge fortune, to all of these businesses. and one thing i wanted to point out to listeners and viewers is that the whole line about why they didn't register to vote was false. >> meaning what? >> you can register to vote in new york state up until 25 days before the election. >> before the primary? >> right. >> ivanka is saying it's a year ago. that was the cut-off. not true. and eric goes along with it. so it's i'll tell a story that's kind of plausible, and the brother will back it up. >> that's because they were registered as independents. >> you can switch. is and i don't want people who want to vote thinking they have to be registered now. this is the trump family values, which it's information not so much. argument. oh, yeah, we're going to argue

about everything. >> the daughters were asked about his relationship with women, which of course has been called into question. so let me play how they both say he does have strong female role models. listen to this. >> i have witnessed these incredible female role models that he has employed in the highest executive positions in the trump organization my entire life. and an industry that has been dominated by men. >> my father always inspired me and had the faith in me to be the best woman i can be. >> that sounds authentic. is that what you gleaned when you interviewed the family? >> he does tend to have things multiple ways. he has women in multiple roles
4:38 am
but he does say terrible things about them. he does place a lot of value on looks specifically. but then again, he is employing these women. that's an argument they can make. they talk about the part of the story they want to talk about and just sell that. >> his 9-year-old son was missing from the family dynamic. that's fair. do they shield him more? >> yes. melania is very protective of him. she was reticent on getting into the race. she said she didn't want to get political. but it is getting to the point where she has to step into the spotlight and participate. they consider him to be off-limits. >> we just put up the family tree for people playing the board game at home. donald jr., ivanka and eric with
4:39 am
ivana. what is the dynamic between all the ex-wives and all these kid. so it as friendly as it saoefs? >> ivana is not friendly. when i interviewed her a year and a half ago she called her that stupid girl. >> the story was marla broke them up. >> it was a terrible thing. big scandal played out on the tabloids with donald choosing one to feed and ivana chose the other to feed. and i don't blame her. this is a really tough thing. i do give them credit and a lot of american families are very blended. this is a very blended family. they do work hard i think to get along. but it's not a fairy tale. >> i've interviewed all the adult children. >> right. >> and they do something that is really gracious. afterwards they send a handwritten note. thank you very much for the
4:40 am
interview. that was a pleasure. really good etiquette. >> yes. >> and i actually complimented donald trump anded your children are so well bred. and he said it's all ivana. i thought that was a humble, modest moment. >> there is a reason those in the media like him as a person. he has great manners and very well bred children. that's the thing. they have impeccable manners. absolutely. >> you saw them on display last night. great to get your insights into the family. a week before the republican convention this summer, there is a meeting that could be even more important for shaping the presidential race. we'll explain what it is and why it matters to the candidates right here next on "new day". like to show off their strengths: 13 name brands. all backed by our low price tire guarantee. yeah, we're strong when it comes to tires. right now during the big tire event, get a $120 rebate by mail on four select tires.

republican presidential candidates battling every step of the way toward july's convention in cleveland. and it is looking more likely to be a contested convention. but the week before the convention, okay, there's a smaller set of delegates that will meet to set the rules. as we're hearing even from the front-runner it's all about the rules. cnn's rules meis is ter here to tell us why. one quick rules question before we get to the actual convention. donald trump is saying the rnc changed the rules because they didn't like what i was doing. you are getting flooded. i'm getting flooded. people saying that's not true. nothing was changed because of donald. this was done well before he
4:45 am
entered the race. >> that's right. the rules have been set in place. with donald trump last night and yesterday was talking about was colorado specifically changed the way they were doctor their delegate selection plan in place in august. dontal trump was in the race then. >> republicans go first. then the democrats. you have the reduce, the credentials, the platforms. what's relevant? >> it is a two-week event, not a one-week event. earlier in the week the rnc will meet and make recommendations to the convention. so at the end of the week the rules committee at the convention, they decide how the convention is going to operate, what rules are going to dictate the convention. such as the famous rule 40 you heard about, right? >> yes. . >> you need a majority of
4:46 am
delegates to win in order to be nominated. >> that rule doesn't have to be committed. >> this committee that meets this week could change that rule. paul ryan said he wants the rules committee to create a rule that says if you haven't run for president you can't be picked. >> yes, the convention is one week. our point is it's the week before. credentials. why do they matter? >> this is who gets to be a delegate on the convention floor? >> who can we get out that's not loyal to us. the credentials committee will vote on what the real roll call will be. that's where they will start taking their complaints, if they have any, to a jury and say,
4:47 am
hey, we don't want this. >> that's why committees matter. it goes to how the deck is stacked. take us through this. this is a look at michigan. >> last week in michigan, kasich folks and trump folks teamed up to block cruz from getting slots on those key committees. >> they kept saying no, no, no. there was no coordination. kasich guys say there is nothing to this. >> cruz folks claim they had a deal with kasich and kasich abandoned that deal. this kind of deal making goes on. this is the kind of organizing we have been talking about. are you prepared. do you know what's going on at the grassroots. kasich may not to not have helped cruz. but what it did is helped kasich. kasich got out of michigan, out of the eight key slots that michigan gets. two on rules. two on credentials. two on the permanent organization. they got three. trump got five.
4:48 am
and no ted cruz loyalists on those committees. >> so this comes down. the reason delegates matter. it is not just a vote for whom they want to be president. it is these are the people who will make the rules of the game. >> that's right. they look up all the rules. they have to take it to the convention floor. we start the convention. this is why that number 1,237. it's not just about that's what you need to be nominated president. you need 50% to pass the rules package, to vote on the credentials package. all of that has to hit 1,237. we see a lot of chaos on the house floor, the house of representatives when they don't have the votes and they scramble and change the bill. same thing here. if they don't have 1,237 to pass the rules, they have to scramble to figure out something out until they do. >> a state of reflection, i didn't even push the button for
4:49 am
platform. that's what these used to be all about. who are we, what are we about, what are we going to get done. now that is an afterthought. it is all about the jockeying of the process. it is going to be more this year than maybe in our lifetime. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> i lean on this guy. i would not believe how much comes from us comes from him. >> don't blame him. >> it's a political system that crosses party lines. america's first ladies. how has their role changed over time and is there any bad blood between them? the author test test
4:50 am
discover card. i missed a payment. aw, shoot. shoot! this is bad. no! we're good! this is your first time missing a payment. and you've got the discover it card, so we won't hike up your apr for paying late. that's great! it is great!

4:53 am
there are five remaining candidates battling to become the next president. one of their spouses will become first lady, or first man in bill clinton's case. our next case has a book that takes us inside the relationships that are formed between the first lady, friendships and some cases bad blood. the book is called first women. the greats and power of american's modern first ladies. such a great read. i've been enjoying it tremendously. a walk through history. it is interesting really because of the book you reflect on how the role of first lady has changed and even the term, how so many of the women have struggled with the title of first lady. i understand nancy reagan put it orn herr tax return. but jackie o. bristle at the idea. >> jackie always felt like a great liability to her husband.
4:54 am
but some really embrace it. that's the point. is that there is this sisterhood that crosses party lines. you have republicans who are close to democrats. laura bush, for instance, closer with michelle obama then michelle obama is with hillary clinton. and another thing, they always what it is like to be under this tremendous pressure. someone wrote to betty ford and said you are constitutionally required to be perfect. it's terrible. and steve ford, betty's son said my mom was app ordinary woman at an extraordinary time. and all these women are. >> and the role has changed. being a first lady you are not just choosing china patterns. you are not just redetecti rede. >> people who might become first lady, what would happen if melania trump, who's not u.s. born would become first lady. >> she sees herself more of a
4:55 am
jackie kennedy more than a hillary clinton mold. and none of these women is like hillary clinton. i mean she's the only one to run for office, herself. so they are all incredibly unique and different. >> but wait. the sisterhood could be turned on its head. it could now be the brotherhood. we are now potentially talking about the potential for the first spouse to be a male in bill clinton. and that's a game changer obviously. >> first gentlemen. and when i talk to friends and hillary clinton, they said they think that bill will be used an an envoy to go hot spots around the globe and that hillary will probably have a really great secretary to handle -- >> christmas party, all of that. >> she needs a first lady. >> exactly. and, you know, will be the first time there is a first hostess that is not the first lady.
4:56 am
since woodrow wilson. >> is there bad blood when michelle obama and the hillary clinton. >> i was told the obamas look at the clintons as this political dynasty that came before them. there is not necessarily a lot of love there. she's not a typical politician. when aides say it's just politics, she doesn't really buy that. she's more idealistic. and they look at the clintons as people who are kind of brazen, about power, ambition. so it is more of a transactional work relationship than a genuine friendship. >> on the other hand there have been likely bonds who have formed. i understand laura bush and michelle obama have this bond. >> and laura defended michelle o
4:57 am
ball and hillary clinton. and and laura bush said no, you don't understand what this is like. and the same with michelle obama. she came to her defense too when michelle came under criticism for saying it was the first time she was proud of her country. laura bush did an is interview shortry after that and said i'm sure that's not what she meant. you have to choose your words careful. >> it is a fascinating and compelling read. a walk through history. thought provoking and challenging and some great photos too. really interesting first time we've seen some of o these as well. congratulations. >> thank you. all right. thank you very much for that, mic. there is a lot of news going on in the election. donald trump's family was on the stage last night. did it help him? did it hurt him? let's get to it. >> i know that it's stacked against me. by the establishment. >> donald is a very sore loser.
4:58 am
>> that could drive america down into a dish and not make us great again. >> donald is panicking -- -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com come on in. come on in. good morning. welcome to your "new day." it is wednesday, april 13, 8:00 in the east. donald trump says the party wants him to lose. he said time and again in the cnn town hall last night the system has been rigged against
4:59 am
him. the party's chairman fed up, firing back in a tweet. >> so the democrats, things getting dirtier between hillary clinton and bernie sanders ahead of tomorrow's pivotal cnn debate in brooklyn. both rivals have ties of course to new york. but who comes out on top, of course it could be a major game changer in the race. we have this election covered the way only cnn can. let's begin with white house correspondent michelle kosinski. >> good morning. you know the trump family was always going to be perfectly poised and ready. and talk up trump empowering women. and how often do you hear donald trump described as selfless? i think you got to see trump in a much different place. calm. the look on his face when he let his kids at times do most of the talking. he did though throw in a make america great again. so presidential. and he started this whole thing off with a tax on his own party. i think the most repeated phrase
5:00 am
was how things are stacked against him. >> you don't think the rnc wants you do get the nomination. >> no i don't think so. >> republican front runner donald trump calling out the republican national committee during cnn's town hall tuesday night, accusing them of conspiring to keep him from clinching the gop nomination by denying him delegates. >> i won louisiana, easily. >> popular vote, more delegate. >> and because of all the shenanigans. >> you call them shenanigans, those are the rules. >> i know the rules very well. but i know that it's stacked against me the by the establishment. >> trump is calling the republican party quote 100% controlled by the rnc and that rules were changed to stop him. ? >> they changed the rules a number of months ago. >> about eight months ago. >> not -- >> you had time to prepare. >> do you know why they changed the rules?
5:01 am
because they saw how i was doing and they didn't like it. >> trump's daughter taking on critics who say their father is disrespectful to women. >> he always taught me there wasn't anything i couldn't do. and i don't think that is the message a father would relay to a daughter who he didn't believe had the potential to accomplish exactly what her brothers could. >> both pointing to upbringing of evidence of equal opportunity father and business mogul. >> since i've been a little girl has always just inspired me and so much faith in me to be the best i can be. >> trump admitting that when it comes to debates, his family wishes sometimes he would lighten up. >> they say be nicer on the debates. wait a minute they're coming at me from all these angles how? >> melania in particular would say be nice in the debates. i say i can't do that. i have to win first. >> everyone talks about a tone. but there comes a time where you have to put the hammer time.
5:02 am
there is a a time when being nice and doing all this stuff. and when people are laughing at your face, you have to fight back. and that's what he does. >> pushing her husband to act for presidential. >> how would you like him to be different? >> just to use nice language. >> better language. >> -- sometimes. better language. not all the time. sometimes i dupragree with it. >> someone yelled out something and he repeat it. >> yes and he repeat it. i was thinking don't repeat it next day the press all they will talk the word. unappropriate word can that was correct. >> and on changing his tone trump says he can switch it up any time. >> it is eds easier to do it than the way i behave right now. >> why not? >> because i have two more people i have to take out. >> and when it comes to retweeting, trump says, yes, it is the retweets that usually get
5:03 am
him in hot water and that it is all his own doing. >> during the evenings after 7:00 or so. i will always do it by myself. >> do you ever want to say put the mobile device down. >> if he would only listen. i did many times. and just say okay do whatever you want. he's an adult. he knows the consequences. >> but it is the special bond they say they all have with their father that trumps it all. >> he's just always had so much love for us and this whole family. amazing guy. one oi my best friends in the entire world. maybe my best friend in the entire world. >> one thing we learned from this. how are trump tweets born? how do they get out there? in his words they are shouted out to the young ladies in his office. and where he have a tweet rebuttal this morning in rnc chair reince priebus saying nomination process known for a year and beyond. it is the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it.
5:04 am
complaints now? give us all a break. >> problem is you have created a monster. this one is going to start shouting things out expecting someone to tweet them. it could happen. thank you so much. in the meantime, paul ryan trying to make it crystal clear he does not want the nomination even if his name comes up. but does his no really mean no? we know he said no to the speakership originally. >> right. and he's also made clear repeatedly that he won't run for president. but that chatter over what may happen at a dead locke convention just becomes a distraction with questions hovering over him. that his motivations had been questioned, even as he begins a furious fundraising push for house republicans with nearly 20 events in the next eight weeks. as chairman ryan wants to stay neutral and wants to be clear that he will not be the nominee.
5:05 am
>> if no candidate has a magenta in the first ballot, i believe that you should only choose from a person who has actually participated in the primary. count me out. i simply police chief that beli want to be the nominee for our part to be the president, you should actually run for it. >> ryan could have his hands full at contested convention. a number of republicans are telling me they may not attend. jeb bush who i ran into at the capitol yesterday told he would skip the convention but ryan wants to limit descension by asking the delegates to write a rule saying only persons who have run for president could be the nominee. i asked does that mean only kasich, cruz and trump? he said he'll leave it to the delegates so we'll see what they do when they have time to consider that, chris. >> all right.
5:06 am
as ron brown stein said this morning. people can run but they cannot hide. let's talk about donald trump and this war with the rnc. we have karina pearson. how you doing. >> good morning chris. >> the polls have trump up by a healthy margin here in new york. one says 60%. if you look at the raw vote he's gotten 37% of the popular vote. he's gotten 44% of the delegate count. he's doing better in the system than outside of the system. why complain katrina? >> well i don't think it's complaining. i think it is just stating the obvious, which is exactly what mr. trump is doing. and by the way, great town hall last night with the family. anderson did a great job. but he's specific -- colorado for example. they changed the rules in august. mr. trump entered the race in june. the gop chairman backed marco rubio and they changed the rules
5:07 am
in august. there was no vote in what was supposed to be a democratic process. and that was a problem. and i'm not quite sure why people don't understand that the rules are very important. and if you know the rules, particularly in the state of colorado, it wouldn't have mattered if mr. trump had a thousand paid staff on the ground. they preselected the delegates. exactly what indiana is doing today. the system is rigged. >> here's the problem. you're saying it's rigged. there are two problems with this. one, there is absolutely not a shred of proof that colorado did anything because of donald trump, certainly way back then when nobody saw that he would be where he is today. so there is that. and second, why would you go and attack the system that you need, that you are benefitting from and that you are going to have to lean on if you are the nominee? i don't get the strategy. >> it is simply because it is the broader picture. the system is rigged against any
5:08 am
outsider. these rules were changed to help those like marco rubio and jeb bush to move forward in the delegate system. because they weren't doing well in the polls early on. and that is what we're talking about. the system is rigged ainst the little guy. against the outsider. it is great if you are an insider and you can manipulate within the system. and of course the gop, the last two cycles, chris, they had all the money. they had the apparatus. they had to get out the vote and lost handedly. so what are we talk about here? mr. trump is going to be someone that can bring more people into the party, have a massive get out the vote system. we keep hearing about this magical ground game on ted cruz's side but guess what? mr. trump has won 22 contests, including seven that senator cruz was supposed to win. donald trump is the candidate to win in the general. >> let me ask you something. you rale against the system. you rale against insiders. you hate the shenanigans.
5:09 am
you hate the double dealing, you hate the back room stuff. all true right? all true -- >> it is a problem. and the system is rigged against the people, it is a problem. >> so the problem is the system and howrigged. you then bring on paul manifort, who's as much of a back room dealer that you can find. how is that not hypocrisy of the highest order. >> you have to bring in someone that knows the system that's working against you. >> do you reject the system, or do you want to work the system? if you want to reject the system why not say i won't play these games. that is why my ground game is lacking because of cruz. >> the ground game isn't lacking. we're winning -- >> -- despite the organization. and prepare for the convention. >> that is the point. because we have the anti-trump
5:10 am
movement. we have the gop leadership coming out and say that we have to stop trump to the point of bricking in a new face whether it's carl rove or paul ryan. so he brought in someone to know the system so we can beat the system. >> you don't think it sends a mixed message. what makes trump so appealing is the unvarnished authentic, this system distinction. i won't -- system stinks. and then you bring in a guy like this. >> i think he can recognize where the problem is and bring in the right people to solve that problem, which is exactly what he's done. >> so what happens when you get into the convention, katrina? how you going to smooth it over where, you know, you have this system that's not really now rigged and set up against you because it is hard to win if you go into a convention without the 50 plus 1 mandate delegates.
5:11 am
and that's 50% of the delegates plus one is what 1237. don't you need the party? you really fight against your own team? >> well we've been fighting our own team since the very beginning. and in fact the republican groots has been fighting against the party for the last seven years. so it can be done. and we believe and are confident we are going to reach the magic number prior to the convention and i think we're going to surprise a lot of people because there are a lot of delegates whether you are not a supporter of donald trump or you are who know that donald trump is the only candidate that can win in november. he's the only candidate with the message. the only candidate that inspires. his support is solid. he has the most enthusiasm other than any republican. and he brings new people into the party. and you have to have that to win in november. >> katrina pearson. appreciate you making the case on "new day" as always. >> great to be here, thanks chris. >> tonight senator cruz gets his turn in the town hall.
5:12 am
he and his wife. bernie sanders and hillary clinton set to face off tomorrow night a high stakes cnn debate. the two candidates stepping up their attacks six days ahead of the critical new york primary. cnn's chris frates is tracking all of the latest for us. good morning. >> good morning. so the bernie sanders campaign continues to hammer away at clinton. taking a swipe at her credibility after one of her attacks on sanders was rated mostly false by a fact checker. this latest after sanders spent days questioning clinton's judgment and qualifications. just yesterday sanders criticized her vote for the iraq war. >> secretary clinton was a united states senator from your state, new york state. she herd, she listened to the same arguments from bush and
5:13 am
cheney. her judgment was faulty. she voted for that disastrous war. >> here is what's interesting. clinton's camp telling me they are not concerned the attacks will hurt her with democrats. the word is sanders is manufacturing bullets that republicans will fire at her in the fall. and they will likely attack her character but now they can do it using his own words. and this is a sign that clinton is focusing on the general election. she left the campaign trail yesterday to fund raise in florida and is increasingly attacking republicans and returns with a fresh endorsement from the new york "daily news." sanders will announce a new endorsement later this morning and will hold what's expected to be a massive rally in new york city tonight. >> autopsy results are being released in the death of former new orleans will smith. this all as we learn investigators found two additional guns. one in smith's suv.
5:14 am
and another in the suspect's car. police say neither of those guns were fired. martin savidge is live in new orleans with all of the latest on this progressing investigation. >> reporter: good morning michaela. it is going to be very interesting to see what is in side of that coroners report. they are saying there was a loaded 9 millimeter handgun found suicide of will smith's vehicle. and they did not find any shell cases. so the gun was there but the gun was not fired. however the fact that the gun was found does back up what he heard from witnesses that night who had said both men were arguing in the street and both claiming they had a weapon. meanwhile there are complications that perhaps alcohol could have played a role. he was out with wife and friends just a few hours before all this
5:15 am
happened. i talked to the manager of the restaurant where they were at. >> they probably $400 worth of sushi. little built of red wine but no one was impaired from drinking. there was no stumbling or slurred speech or loud or obnoxious behavior in the restaurant. everybody seemed like they were fine. and they were going to go on to another location. >> reporter: here is where this case is evolving. it started with reports that this was possibly a road rage incident. but now it looks like it could be more into a stand your ground case. and here you have stand your ground laws but it is stronger than that. it is also you do not have to retreat. so if it is possible hayes somehow felt threatened by will smith, a jury could possibly see the shooting as justifiable.
5:16 am
>> you make all the right points martin that is why we have to stay on it and figure out what the facts are. another headline for you. the fbi is now offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to stolen andy warhol paintings. they were taken from a missouri art museum last week. the seven campbell soup screen prints were part of a set of ten valued at half a million dollars. authorities say they were lifted during an early morning break in at the spring field art museum. u2 front man bono warning a senate action committee to take action on the foreign aid crisis. he also suggested seriously sending comedians, amy schumer, chris rock and sasha baron cohen to crush violent extremists like isis. he says laughing at them takes
5:17 am
away their power. >> very powerful. speaking of comedy we need some of that. the men and women of 2016 always good for some laughs. here is our late night punchline. >> according to some analysts, donald trump, donald trump support is deeper than it looks. although others say trump just took the support he has and c b combed it over to make it look better. >> bill clinton was in the bronx campaigning for hillary yesterday and he visited the hebrew home for the aging. while hillary actually went there to drop off bernie sanders. >> donald trump is still very much focused on winning. >> we're gonna win so much. you may even get tired of winning. and you will say please, please, it is too much winning. we can't take it anymore. mr. president. it's too much. and i'll say no it is nlt. we have to keep winning. we have to win more. we're going to win more. >> do you think he ever walks
5:18 am
off stage and goes, what the hell was i talking about? >> the jokes write themselves. i was waiting for in the kimmel one them to have done something. >> didn't have to. let me just walk away. that is a sign of a good comedian. got you right in the giggles, didn't it? all right. sneaky tactics. swaying delegates, bordering on the strom arming. i'm talking about allegations made against the bernie sanders campaign. what? details ahead. discover card. i missed a payment. aw, shoot. shoot! this is bad. no! we're good! this is your first time missing a payment. and you've got the discover it card, so we won't hike up your apr for paying late. that's great! it is great! (both simultaneously) thank you. at discover, we treat you like you'd treat you. get the it card with late payment forgiveness.

hillary clinton and bernie sanders about to go head-to-head in tomorrow tomorrow night's cnn democratic debate. now facing allegations his supporters are harassing super delegates who support hillary clinton. joining us to talk about this and so much more van winkler. good morning. >> thank you. nice to be here. >> before we get to whether or not there is harassment of super delegates i just want to talk about move on and who you congu are endorsing in january. move on held a vote in which 78% of your believe online poll of something like 3400,000 members wanted bernie. onlt 14.6 wanted hillary. what is it making your members go so overwhelmingly for bernie
5:23 am
sanders. >> almost 79% of move on voters backed bernie sanders for president. and the reason is simple. because his vision for what american politics should be about has incredible resonance with grassroots progressives and the electorate in general about talking the power of big banks and billionaire class and making colleges free for public colleges and affordable all. and issues of the climate change and the equal justice. if you think is it status quo is not okay then bernie sanders is your guy. >> as you know ben, hillary clinton leads really outstandingly in super delegates over bernie sanders. and now there is this new website that just cropped up last week. super delegate hit list. it was reportedly set up by a bernie sanders supporter. and it is designed by its own admission to harass democratic super delegates. let me read to you what it says. the guy who designed it says who wants to help start a new
5:24 am
website aimed at harassing super delegates? and then it says #feel the bern. is that above board. >> i have to say. we should leave harassment to the super delegates to the republicans. they seem to have that market cornered. but frank think there is no place for harassing anyone really in either party. this should be a contest of ideas and issues. i will say i think that super delegates and move on members across the country i think most would agree. super delegates should support the winner of the primaries and caucuses. it should -- ultimately this is a contest that should be decided by the american electorate. that is the system we should have and i think most americans expect us to have. it is weird and outdated that a hand full of super delegates could potentially tip the ambulance against the choice of the american people. >> and in fact we've heard
5:25 am
donald trump rale against the very same system that he says is underhanded and dirty. i want to get to whether or not you think bernie sanders, is incumbent upon bernie sanders to stop this? to call them out and say there should be no such thing. browse he hasn't said things like that yet. >> well sanders and clinton are both pressing their case to super delegates through their campaigns. and certainly they would urge someone to say support one or another or the eventually winner. i do think though that harassment is outside ouch out of bounds. and sanders has talked about the necessity for people to remain respect and simple tone. and important everyone feels safe in this p contest of ideas. >> and in terms of this one website do you think it is time for bernie sanders to say no bullying of super delegates? no harassing them.
5:26 am
>> this website was not affiliated anyway with the campaign or any of the groups supporting bernie sanders but i hope the person that created will like about the kind of behavior he's encouraging. everyone has a voice and a right to make their voice heard. what's out of bounds is giving anyone the feeling that they are threatened or harassed. >> yes. this morning the new york daily news is endorsing hillary clinton. how much do you think that that interview that bernie sanders did when he sat down with the "daily news" editorial board and didn't seem to have a very detailed plan about, say, breaking up the big banks or fighting isis. how much do you think that will hurt him in new york? >> i think it will hurt him with the "daily news" editorial board. the fact is new yorkers know anyone who's been paying attention to his other writings, his speeches on the senate
5:27 am
floor. other comments misi head on the campaign trail. they know full well bernie sanders knows how to break up the big banks. he was actually kind of using shorthand in that interview that didn't explain the details properly but it is clear this is someone who takes this incredibly seriously and talked about the regulatory roots, the legislative route, all the way to tackle the immense power of the wall street billionaires and interests. it is clear bernie sanders is ready to take the fight to wall street on behalf of regular people against the special interests. >> van winkler, move on dotting or. than thanks. hours away from the debate in brooklyn. tomorrow night 9:00 p.m. eastern and tomorrow morning as well michaela. >> all right. gonna get your metro card? >> i hope so. i hope i don't have a bad swipe

5:29 am
you know...diarrhea? abdominal pain? but we said we'd be there... woap, who makes the decisions around here? it's me. don't think i'll make it. stomach again...send! if you're living with frequent, unpredictable diarrhea and abdominal pain, you may have irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhea or ibs-d - a condition that can be really frustrating. talk to your doctor about new viberzi. a different way to treat ibs-d. viberzi is a prescription medication you take every day that helps proactively manage both diarrhea and abdominal pain at the same time. so you stay ahead of your symptoms. viberzi can cause new or worsening abdominal pain. do not take viberzi if you have or may have had pancreas or severe liver problems, problems with alcohol abuse, long-lasting or severe constipation, or a blockage of your bowel or gallbladder. if you are taking viberzi, you should not take medicines that cause constipation. the most common side effects of viberzi include constipation, nausea, and abdominal pain. stay ahead of ibs-d... with new viberzi. what if 30,000 people download the new app? we're good.

[so i use quickbooks and run mye entire business from the cloud. i keep an eye on sales and expenses from anywhere. even down here in the dark i can still see we're having a great month. and celebrate accordingly. i run on quickbooks.that's how i own it. is our partnership with habitat for humanity. pg&e is committed to clean energy and part of that commitment
5:31 am
our mission is to build homes, community and hope. our homeowners are low-income families, so the ability for them to have lower energy cost is wonderful. we have been able to provide about 600 families with solar on their homes. that's over nine and a half million dollars of investment by pg&e, and that allows us to provide clean energy for everyone here. it's been a great partnership. together, we're building a better california.
5:32 am
i know that it's stacked against me by the establishment. we had a lot of delegates and they were not heard because the republican party out there was a hundred percent probably controlled by rnc. they changed the rules a number of months ago. >> about eight months. >> well that's not very long -- >> better -- >> they saw how i was doing and they didn't like it. >> here are the big questions. is the system rigged? is it rigged specifically against trump? is this talk going to help him or hurt him? discuss. we are going to do that right now. former new york congressman rick lazio ran for senate, loss to hillary clinton in 2000. >> good to see you sir. >> same here. always. do you know of any proof to back
5:33 am
up that suggestion that any rules were changed in any state to stop him? >> of course not. these rules have mostly been in place for over a year. the states themselves create most of the rules. the convention rules will be created at the convention. donald trump knew this when he announced for president and the issue is he just has to execute on a plan to be able to get those delegates. i know what it's like. i was in a convention where i had my state party chairman oppose me. and have the operation of the party oppose me. and you just go to work. you know the rules. you work well-being the systith you win. that is what donald trump needs do. >> so he's wrong about it being designed for him and yet he winds up being right because people are so angry at the system. the rules are weird. especially weird on your side. colorado winds up being the ugly example of how it seems to be taken from the people. does this help trump even if
5:34 am
he's not right in his core assessment? >> it does and doesn't chris. to some extent he's playing to the sense of i've lost faith in the institutions. the party's faithful, many of them have felt as though the party has not delivered on its promises. so they are questioning their credibility in many ways. so in terms of reaching out to the grassroots and amplifying his message and i'm the anti-establishment candidate plays, the probl for trump is that he now goes into another phase, which toss appeal to delegates a the contested convention that aren't already pledged to him. he's going to persuade people that are long-time party stalwarts. >> they like the party and he keeping saying the party stinks. >> he's got to overcome that somehow. and the suggestion is the party has actually changed the rules so voting has become much more proportional in many states. or you could argue the electoral
5:35 am
college itself is because bedon't elect presidents by direct vote. if he were to win and not get the popular vote would he say the system is rigged and give it up? >> is it electoral college gives smaller states proportional representation. makes them relevant. we don't really know what the goal of these delegate deals are sometimes other than to empower that party. now reince priebus, the head of the rnc. he made no bones about this. in the past they have been cautious when dealing with trump. but in this tweet he said look. it's known for a year plus, beyond. the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. complaints now, give us all a break. this is about having your team win on the ground. when you were opposed, you're a grinder, you put your team in there and went against it. i've been with you on the basketball court. watches you playing in the political game as well. you get your elbows ready and you go after it.
5:36 am
is his organization not where it needs to be? >> it is not where it needs to be. he's not executing effective plan to win the delegates and to play within the rules and to focus on the details. he's done a great job of amplifying his message to a certain segment of the republican base. now he goes to another phase where he has to build an organization and he has to execute and deliver to be able to get these delegates in place to win a majority of the delegates. those are the rules of the game when he joined the contest. and he's got to be able to execute on this. and there is going to be a whole other group of issues that i hope he'll begin to engage on and the other candidates. you know even have a debate very soon with the democrats in brooklyn. you know, there are a number of issues that haven't come up yet. i want to hear about affordable housing. 30 -- >> i know you do. >> -- new yorkers spending more than 50% of their income on housing. 50% on housing and we get to
5:37 am
have a single question or debate about an issue like that. >> so what's it going to be like --. running against hillary clinton you had a moment on the stage with her which round upcoming back to white you. let's just remind pea. you a people. up there debating let's play it. >> i would be happy to when you give me the signed letters. >> right here. right here. sign it right now. >> we'll shake on. this. >> no no i want your signature. i think everybody wants to see you signing something you said you were for. >> this became a study in the politics of the confrontation and the dynamic between a man and a woman on the stage. what did you learn from that experience? what is your lesson to donald trump. >> yeah stay at the podium. that's one. >> -- >> mrs. clinton had made a pledge. i didn't think she was fulfilling it. i thought this was an
5:38 am
opportunity. she said show me. i said here it is. you asked for it. here it is. and ironically the next morning a majority of the journalists in new york when polled about who won the debate had me winning it. but when they saw the clip people thought wow, this is a sense of invading. >> too aggressive. >> too aggressive. and when i look at it i say that wasn't me. i shouldn't have gone there. so i regret that. >> what's the lesson for trump? he say he's going to give hillary clinton a beat down on a very personal level. >> it is a different era. i think donald trump could get away with more than i could. and part is his persona and how they define and see him and they expect a certain behavior from him and from me probably. so there is a difference there. and there is a line to be crossed though. i think he needs to be tough and hold. if he's the nominee he needs to hold her accountable. nobody goes into a presidential debate or senate debate for that
5:39 am
matter. and they shouldn't expect that it is going to be softball. this is going to be a hard fought, hard argued debate and there are things that are totally within bounds on issues and character and hypocrisy and other language and other things that are probably out of bounds. he needs to be careful he doesn't cross is that. >> you learn from that. you are living a great life. building affordable housing. rick, thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> hi chris. musicians uniting to protest a wave of religious freedom measures in southern states. what impact where their solidarity have? openly gay music star sally wright joins us. prepare for challenges specific to your business by working with trusted advisors

5:48 am
north carolina's governor
5:49 am
amending a controversial bathroom law. his executive order now allows lgbt workers to sue employers for discrimination. but the most controversial with rrms corresponding to gender --. some even canceling performances in the south in response to a wave of so called religious freedom measures. joining us now the first openly gay country music recording artist and lgbt activist shelly wright. >> so glad to be here. >> a girl from tennessee. >> yeah. i grew up in kansas and moved to tennessee when i was 18. lived there for 20 years and i reside in new york city. nashville will always be home. >> and that is why you take this issue very personally. and not just personally, but you also realize the impact it has. and i want to read the statement that you released in reaction to the anti-lgbt bills going
5:50 am
forward in tennessee. as an artist living in working in nashville more than twenty years i know how hard it was to struggle for acceptance as the gay woman. deck is stackal even higher against trans gender students. the bill will send a devastating message to trans gender use that they are not welcome, included or valued. really important for you to say this. why did you feel it was so important. >> well i came out six years ago. and part of my commitment to myself to come out so publicly and such a very coordinated way was i wanted my shois to be a part of the discussion. my voice. in country music, gay issues aren't talked about or discussed. and lgbt issues. and once i game out it is just really hard to shut me up. >> there are other voices. but with this issue, these anti-discrimination bills that are circulating. do you or the anti-lgbt bills that are circulating, do you
5:51 am
feel there is enough support? we've noticed there are voices. for example bruspringsteen --. it is not quite as a resounding call from your country music pals, if you will. >> yeah we are still a little behind. >> why do you think that is? >> well -- do you want to talk about it? >> let's do it. >> it's scary. as the country music artist. you know that by and large a fan base is the bedrock of their lives is faith, family and country. what we have to -- what i need to continue to talk about and encourage my contemporaries in country music to discuss is that those are the bedrocks of my life still. >> right. >> i'm a married woman. i have identical twin boys who will be three, god help me. next month. and faith is and always has been a big part of my life. so i think that -- i know that there are some like-minded
5:52 am
artists in country music. i know because i've talked to them privately. and i think they are reticents in coming forward and not just saying i love all of my gay fans. i don't judge. i love the sinner, hate the sin. that is so 2010. >> what's 2016 to you? >> 2016 is three big acts in country music. i haven't had a hit on the charts for over a decade. we're talking relevant artists, hit makers. the ones who have the biggest voices in country music. there are a few that i know are on the precipice of saying something. i think they feel uncertain. they don't exactly what to say. they don't know the reaction but to change what we need in 2016 is for them to absolutely 100% affirm the lgbt community and condemn these anti- -- these very bigoted laws. >> what do you think it will take to nudge them over the edge.
5:53 am
>> my incessant e-mailing and texting them. >> that is what it's going to take to get them to say something? >> i think there is safety in numbers michaela. if one comes forward, perhaps another one might feel a little safer to do so. and it's also about education. a lot of my peers in country music may not think they know a trans person. i know they know a gay person. i know many of them have gays and lesbians who work for them and they love them. but we need them now to take that very courageous step to affirm and to say these bills are absolutely ridiculous. >> and it's not just about the bills but it is about the reality of living as a gay country music star in the south. because that is its own set of challenges and not necessarily been an easy road for you. >> it hasn't been. but i moved to new york right before i came out. perhaps i was a little afraid to face it there in new york. >> or in tennessee rather? >> in tennessee. >> yeah.
5:54 am
>> more important than what it's like to live as a gay artist in tennessee, i would ask my peers in the country music industry to imagine what it's like to be a trans student in east tennessee. >> as an artist you live in somewhat of a bubble. but the reality is and you are concerned about what this means for the youth. these laws, how it is going to affect the lives of the trans gender, lgbt youth that are coming up. >> and already very vulnerable community of people. and i'm -- i'm going to go one further and say that even if the bill doesn't pass, this damage is being done already. because these kids who are harassed and bullied, believe you me, their classmates who have been bullying them are hearing this language being bandied about and it might embodien them to perhaps double
5:55 am
down on this harassment. >> your beginning to keep on. >> i am. >> and hoping your friends are going to join you. >> i'm hopeful and i understand. it's difficult. it's difficult to speak out and say something that you know a portion of your fan base is not going to like. and, you know, at some point these country music artists who are friends of mine. their kids and grand kids are going to say papa, did you say something? >> chely wright, you're something else. thank you. >> thank you. >> i'm a big fan. we got the good stuff coming next. 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. we're total heroes. scale on demand with the number one company in cloud infrastructure.
