6:00 am
your health on so many levels. >> that's not all. the project will start farming classes in an effort to end hunger in the community. >> last year they did something similar. i love when people do that. >> love it. >> their own will, their own inclination to help the community. love it. >> thanks for letting me hang out. >> great series. >> thank you so much. i'll be back on at 2:00. thank you very much. carol costello. >> that's my nap time. >> not for me. >> have a great day, guys. newsroom starts now. happening now, in the newsroom. >> thank you, new york. >> we love new york, we love new york. >> and new york loves the front-runners. now clinton looking to lockup the democratic nomination, with five primaries next week. >> but sanders says, this is still a race.
6:01 am
>> we believe we have the momentum, and we believe we have a path toward victory. >> and donald trump takes on a more presidential tone. >> senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. >> saying the deal is nearly sealed, but cruz and kasich fight on. >> there is nothing to do with the politician winning his home state. >> let's talk live in the cnn newsroom. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. donald trump and hillary clinton, dominate the empire state today. both front-runnering celebrating big wins over their rivals. here are the results. trump capturing more than 60% of the vote, while ted cruz trails behind john kasich. he finishes in third. that means mr. trump picks up 89 delegates. senator cruz walks away with zero. and for the democrats, a
6:02 am
commanding win for hillary clinton. she beat bernie sanders by more than a dozen points. she now scoops up at least 139 delegates. the candidates now trying to capitalize on a new surge of momentum heading into the next batch of primariieprimaries. let's go to jason carroll. >> we'll have to see. it was a huge win for donald trump last night. trump saying in his victory speech that he is rocking it, predicting he will be heading into the convention as the winner. but he also cautioned those within the gop establishment not to try to stop him by taking his delegates. >> we can't be caught, it's impossible to catch us. >> donald trump giving a rousing victory speech befitting his new york win and signal a new phase in his campaign. >> we don't have much of a race any more. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. >> the billionaire front-runner
6:03 am
dropping the insults and sounding more presidential. >> nobody should be given delegates, with say a ticket to victory. >> sharpening his focus on ted cruz, continuing to criticize his courting of delegate, and the possibility of a contested convention. >> a system that is rigged and we're going to go back to the old way. you vote and you win. >> with the shutout in new york, cruz defending his strategy. >> i cannot help the donald trump campaign does not seem capable of running a lemonade stand. if you lose, don't cry about it. go back and try to learn how to win an election. >> unity within the republican party. >> we must unite the republican party. because doing so is the first step towards uniting all americans. >> runner up john kasich ready for a fight in maryland,
6:04 am
continuing to argue, he is the strongest candidate to take on hillary clinton in november. >> when you have these sky high negatives, nobody is voting for you. the delegates will look at that, and you know, i think they're going to make a pick my way. >> a little bit more on ted cruz. donald trump tweeting, just a few momenting ago. mathematically, out of winning the race, now all he can do is be a spoiler. never a nice thing to do. i will beat hillary. that's the tweet right there. you know how donald trump likes to tweet. speaking more of cruz, i was out in staten island all day long, speaking to voters all day long. what was interesting, there were a number of people who were on the fence, between cruz and trump. and i'll tell you what is wawas deciding factor. >> i know what you're going to say, new york values. >> new york values. >> i've heard that from so many republicans here. >> it really hurt him here in the state of new york. >> that was actually a nice simple tweet from donald trump, right? >> i don't know if it was
6:05 am
presidential, but. >> well, i mean, it was true. >> it is true. it's true. >> at least according to trump. >> thank you so much. >> you bet. we've heard the presidential tone thing before from donald trump, but this time, with the nomination in sight, mr. trump might just drop his more bombastic tone for good until of course he needs it, because you know cruz and kasich are still in it. there is still hope, among some, that house speaker paul ryan will ride to the rescue, although ryan says no. here he is on the late show with stephen colbert. >> yes or no, would you accept the nomination? >> no, stephen, i have said i do not want nor would i accept the republican nomination. >> got it. so you're considering the nomination? >> no, no, i'm not. >> let me say it in clear english. no. >> okay, how about clear german? >> nine. >> clear russian?
6:06 am
neyt. >> wow, you seem to know a lot of foreign languages. that international experience will come in handy if you accept the nomination, sir. >> that's so funny. with me now, scottie, a trump surrogate, usa radio network, and a cruz founder and tea party nation. welcome to both of you. all right. >> good morning. >> good morning. so scottie, mr. trump did not say lyin' ted or crooked hillary once in victory speech last night. but how long can he resist? >> he also resisted tweeting out to rosie o'donnell, who yesterday also their ten year battle and tweeted out things against him. you have to realize, in business, you can't always have the same presentation. you can't always sit here and have the same wording. you have to look at the marketing of it. you keep the core foundation the same, and that's what we're seeing. he had to take the attention
6:07 am
away, and now what we're seeing is a candidate getting ready possibly to go into a contested convention, but even that, he is looking at more of the general election. that's who we're seeing now. >> i have to ask you this, jetson, about senator cruz. mathematically, it doesn't add up for him any longer n state of new york, donald trump won every congressional district except one, and that of course, the congressional included trump tower, oddly enough. but still, ted cruz won zero delegates here. things don't look better moving forward. why is senator cruz still in the race? >> because senator cruz is going to win. you know, from the beginning -- >> what? >> he has had a strategy. yes. >> he can't win. he can't win mathematically. >> he most certainly can. all that has to happen is donald trump doesn't win on the first ballot. and then ted cruz wins on the second ballot. >> well, you are talking about a convention fight, not a win. >> look, if you win at the convention, you win. you become the republican nominee.
6:08 am
that's what this is all about. and that's the game senator cruz has been doing. you know, mr. trump has been mismanaging his campaign the whole way along, i mean, just today, we're hearing that the trump airplane hasn't been properly registered with the faa for five months now. so this is kind of stereotypical of the trump campaign. it's stereotypical of what donald trump has been the whole way along. you know, by the way, it's worth mentioning, donald trump didn't whine one time when he got 60% of the votes and getting 90% of the delegates. you didn't hear senator cruz whining last night either. >> he gave a speech, scottie, that sounded quite presidential. he compared himself to bernie sanders, as the ultimate outsider. it was a very measured. he said he could bring unity to the republican party. so he also gave a speech that sounded kind of presidential. >> it did, but what we saw in new york was historical. i looked back and look the in 2012, for mitt romney, only
6:09 am
118,912 voters came out and gave mitt romney 63% of the votes. now, yesterday, we saw 518,000 new yorkers, came out and voted for mr. trump alone. that is incredible numbers here in new york. you're seeing the high turnouts for mr. trump in the north, south, east, west. this idea that mr. trump cannot unify is false, because he is unifying. you're hearing the talking points this morning from the critics. >> if you look at the exit polls, he isn't union mying where he needs to, but he did poorly among african-american voters and other minorities, right? >> definitely. that's a problem that the republican as a whole has to address. they're going to work to address them together. all of them have problems. that's a republican issue right now. you hear these talking about, going after his, not necessarily mr. trump. now they are attacking his campaign, which by the way, obviously winning, because they're winning in delegate
6:10 am
counts. obviously have a strategy and they're doing growth and turn around and what we consider to be a general election. ted cruz needs to be telling john kasich. if you cannot mathematically win, then why are you in this race. >> i was going to ask him the same thing. how can he pin his hopes on a contested convention and then say john kasich has to get out of the race, when john kasich is doing exactly the same thing? >> it's very simple. senator cruz has been working since day one on delegates. and you know, this is the thing that people seem to miss here. we have a representative republic and the republic can party picks represents, we call them delegates. they have various ways of doing it, but we pick them that go to cleveland that pick the republican nominee. senator cruz has been lining up his delegates since day one. the light went on with little donny and we have to get delegates and hires paul manafort. it's late in the game to start
6:11 am
figuring this out. in west virginia, 34 delegates. trump could only get 19 on the slate. the rest were disqualified. the rest of the delegates will be cruz delegates. this has been typical of the trump campaign all the way along. they didn't show up in wyoming, they didn't show in north dakota. when they went for cruz, trump whined about it. if you don't show up, you're not going to win. >> all right, well, i have to leave it there. thanks to both of you. >> carol, thank you. >> you're welcome. still to come in the newsroom, bernie sanders taking some down time, but he says he is far from out. and clinton's big win in new york, next. roc retinol started visibly reducing my fine lines and wrinkles in one week. and the longer i use it the better it works. retinol correxion from roc. methods, not miracles.
6:12 am
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
fresh off a resounding win in new york, hillary clinton took the stage as at a post primary victory rally and took
6:16 am
the opportunity to say thank you. >> you proved once again there is no place like home. >> and then she clicked her heels and breanna, off to where? >> yeah, that's right. she is looking ahead, right. we have a number of races that we're seeing here in the next week. probably the biggest among them. but this last night, for hillary clinton, was a very big night. she is trying to pivot to the victory is in sight. that's the phrase we heard from hillary clinton. we keep hearing from her top aides, but not if bernie sanders has anything to say about it. >> in this campaign, we've won in every region of the country. but this one is personal. >> hillary clinton with a big win in her adopted home state. addressing senator bernie sanders supporters with her sights set on the white house. >> it's humbling that you trust
6:17 am
me with the awesome responsibilities that await our next president. and to all the people who supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us. >> ending sanders winning streak, where he took eight of the last nine contests. >> today we took secretary clinton on in her own state of new york, and we lost. i congratulate secretary clinton on her victory. there are five primaries next week. we think we're going to do well. >> in new york, three million independents across the state did not vote in the state's closed primary. sanders also railing against voter irregularities in the polls, with some 100,000 democrats unable to vote because they were purged from voter registration lists in brooklyn. >> i am really concerned about the conduct of the voting process in new york state.
6:18 am
and i hope that that process will change in the future. >> time running out for sanders to catch up to clinton's delegate lead. >> the race for the democratic nomination is in the homestretch, and victory is in sight. >> so you can see there, the clinton campaign really painting this as bernie sanders is done. she is going to be the nominee. they're urging him to think about the long game. they want him to dial down the rhetoric. they're worried some of the things he said lately will be damaging to her, or damaging to the allure of the party to some of his younger supporters. but he is not giving any indication that he is leaving, right? his campaign manager said he is in this to the convention, but he does have a top aide, tad devine, who said they may reassess after tuesday, when would he see several more contests. >> thanks so much. so sanders lost new york by double digits. the path is steep from here. you heard what breanna said.
6:19 am
is it time for him to reassess. he is back home in vermont. he says to recharge. still, as she said, sanders is vowing to fight on. >> are you planning to change anything about your campaign after tonight? >> no, we think we have the message that is resonating throughout the country. we have come a long, long way. we have taken on the entire democratic political establishment. >> here to talk about that, brad woodhouse, clinton supporter, and correct the record, a rapid response team, a bernie sanders supporter, and former dnc counsel at large member. let's start with you. bernie sanders has to be disappointed in the results in new york state. you heard some democrats want him to dial down the rhetoric. should he do that now? >> well, i think that bernie sanders has led a positive campaign. if anything, he has been talking about the differences between the two candidates records throughout the campaign. you can hear it throughout the
6:20 am
rhetoric. if they think it's been negative, clearly, they haven't been listening to the other side. that's the hillary clinton campaign. but the reality here is we knew going in that this is the most closed primary state. we hear this over and over. i am from new york, i've seen the elections over the past 15, 20 years. we have not had much reform. the new york state legislature is controlled by democratic. you would think they would want the reforms. unfortunately, the closed primary system is protected. it will be more favorable to the name that has the endorsements. >> before we get into that, i want to go back to the negativity in the campaign. because brad, just this week, the sanders team accused the clinton team of violating finance laws. the camp wrote a letter to the dnc that reads in part it is of grave concern that the clinton joint fundraising committee appears to be using funds raised by bill dollar donors to fund activities that yield contributions and support that only provide benefit only to hillary for america. first of all, your thoughts on
6:21 am
that, and whether that's right or wrong? >> well, first of all, it's wrong. it has been every neutral analyst, every legal analyst that does election law, has said it is absolutely wrong. let's remember, senator sanders signed the same agreement. he signed a joint fundraising agreement that he would do the same type of funds raising with the dnc. what sanders decided he doesn't care about down ballot races. he only cares about his presidential campaign. that's his right. now, carol, it is true, that this -- >> that's not true. political fact chekt. >> this political primary -- >> i have to respond. >> hold on. >> you can't just lie. >> i want to concentrate whether hillary clinton is doing anything illegal. and brianna just looked into it, it may look unsavory, but it is completely legal. >> senator sanders signed -- by the record, your organization is
6:22 am
funneling money. >> wait. >> senator sanders signed the same agreement. he decided it is not important to support state parties, and that's unfortunate. >> well, besides that brad, i want to bring this up, because this is what has some democratic leaders concerned. that if bernie sanders puts this stuff out there, and donald trump has this nickname for hillary clinton, crooked hillary, that play news his narrative, and that will ultimately hurt the democrats in the long run in a general election. so is it time that sanders dialed down things? >> well, when they're going out of the way to -- >> there's not true. >> how they're funneling the money. they're buying ads on facebook, trying to donate donations that go back into the hillary for america. you're correct the record, they then give money to the dnc.
6:23 am
they give money to the general fun. we now how it works. flow of money. you have the best lawyers in the world. by the way, that should be shady in itself. yes, it might be legal. but hillary has the best lawyers. now, aside from that, aside from that -- >> you know, we are a trying to win an election. >> we are too. >> beat the republicans. >> you know what, it's not the -- this is a competitive primary. hang on a second, brad. all you have to do on the hillary side is reach the 2,383 number. that's what you have to do. right now, at this pace, with the margins, the difference of the margins of fledged delegates, she will not reach that 2,383. >> that's blatantly untrue. carol, can i get in here. >> please let brad respond. i want to concentrate on, it's going to be a steep hill for bernie to win the nomination and win the number of delegates he needs.
6:24 am
they're trying to convince super delegates and all this stuff. ra ratchet things down, stop the attacks on one another, because it won't help in a general election. >> carol, let's talk about that. i mean, senator sanders saying clinton was unqualified. it was disastrous, and it backfired on him. illegal fundraising activity, that backfired. it absolutely backfired. >> brad, you're messaging machine. write the message. >> carol, can i finish? >> just let brad finish for a second. >> going forward, he can return to what he pledged to do at the beginning of the campaign and have a positive issue focused campaign that contrasts with republicans, which is what hillary is doing or he can done the innuendo, the character attacks, and feed the carl rowe attacks that will come at
6:25 am
hillary in the general election. >> final word for you. go ahead. >> that's the language. when you start acting like the democratic establishment is the cool kid's table and ignore the fact that 80% of the democrats voting in the election under the age of 50 are supporting the bernie sanders movement, the movement of movements, democrats need to bring them in. but the way that the party is playing politics right now is dirty. it might be legal. but it is dirty. it -- >> there is nothing dirty about it. >> you have every single lawyer, the dnc and hillary clinton sharing a lawyer, you don't think that's dirty? you don't think that's dirty. >> i must end it there, because you guys could argue until like, you know, next tuesday. >> well -- >> we get it. thank you so much. brad, mickey, it will be an interesting going forward. still to come, hillary clinton and donald trump race to november, there are speed bumps ahead. christine romans has a closer look. we ate anything.
6:26 am
until i decided we both needed to eat better. now jake gets purina cat chow naturals indoor a nutritious formula for indoor cats with no artificial flavors. it helps to control hairballs and maintain a healthy weight. so these days, we're both eating better. naturally!! purina cat chow. nutrition to build better lives. theso there will be thingses. to keep us up at night. will they find happiness? reach their potential. stay safe. fall in love. but tonight johnson's can help with a bedtime routine clinically proven to help them fall asleep faster. and stay asleep longer. there will be things to keep us up. but tonight, we sleep. whe gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so you know what he gives?

6:30 am
costello. after decisive victories in new york, republican donald trump and democratic hillary clinton have the same message. they are ready for november. christine romans has been examining the exit polls. she has some interesting numbers to tell us. >> very interesting. the front-runners built on their core strengths here in new york, but also made important in roads. start with the democrats. new york, diverse in some other states. 59% white, 22% black. 2% asian. valuable for clinton, ahead with diverse populations. clinton dom napted wi clinton dominated with black voters. it is not news. what is, a 50/50 split with
6:31 am
white voters. this was sanders territory. republicans, vastly different. 91% is white, trump won big with this group. dominated across the board here. trump's success carrying through all income levels, 52% of those making less than 50,000. pick trump, 63% of those making more than 50,000. three quarters of the republican electorate by the way in new york. he typically polls well with working class, without a college degree. here he won the college graduates too. 54% of the voters picked donald trump in new york. he also won with voters who considered themselves moderate. the margin was closer here, carol. 46% for trump, 42% for john kasich, carol. >> fascinating. christine, thanks so much. they want to pivot to a general election strategy, and for good
6:32 am
reason. if it is clinton versus trump, it will be nasty despite his tone of late. i'm joined by cnn political anchor for new york 1 news, arrol. >> good morning. >> good morning. hillary clinton does well with minority voters. can trump win by attracting only a huge amount of white voters? >> this is the question that has been haunting this campaign from the very beginning. the question of whether or not by a heavy dependence on white voters, they can kweez out one more victory. we know the numbers are changing, the democratgraphics the country overall. mitt romney had the same percentage as ronald reagan, it's telling you the country is changing. look at the swing states, virginia, even georgia to a certain extent, florida, new mexico, these are places that have been changing for decades.
6:33 am
it's starting to sort of show up when you look at the generations, when you look at who is making voting age when you look at what the outcome is in the election. so what people have feared all along, the republican strategists, we cannot try it one more time. we've got to make inroads, moderate the message, make more outreach to the emerging communities. donald trump is saying the heck with all of that, i'm going try to squeeze it out one more time. that's been the strategy so far. can he pivot, major question going into november. >> economy was most important, and donald trump fared well in that area he is the best to handle the economy. can that trump his lack of support for minority voters. >> we'll see. some of the talk about immigration actually is an economics question. you can't pull them apart when he talks about building a wall, it starts to stray in this area where once sort of the harsh
6:34 am
tone has been struck, the people won't listen to anything else you have to say. even if your trade policy discussion is sort of intelligent and not particularly bigoted, if you turn people off, you're never going to get them back. that's what people have been warning donald trump about from the very beginning. he is decided to go a different way. >> hillary clinton is strong on foreign policy, but a lot of, well, a lot of international figures kind ever fear donald trump's foreign policy. there was an interesting hearing going on on capitol hill, a nomination hearing, and the subject of the korean peninsula came up. you know donald trump said we have troops there, right. why isn't south korea paying for that. well, they kind of are, and that subject came up in this hearing. so let's listen to that. >> raising the fact that it costs us less to have troops stationed in korea than in the united states. >> i would give two examples of that. they pay about 50% of our personnel costs of being there.
6:35 am
the second example would be the largest dod construction project we have any where in the world, about a $10.8 billion project, that is really being used to relocate u.s. forces further to the south. >> so it would cost more to keep those troops stationed in the united states, then it would be in dokorea, is that correct? >> absolutely, senator. >> okay, so hillary clinton could bring that up during a debate, right? but trump supporters, i don't know if they'll care. >> well, no, that's right. it's interesting. i mean, look, when foreign aid comes up, how much it quote-unquote costs us, the polls show people always dramatically over estimate we're giving in aid. they completely mistake, as you just second through the clip, the amount it cost to station troops overseas. it is a fact free discussion in a lot of ways. really, that's where trump has taken the conversation. where it's just an emotional sort of thing. look, they should pay for it. it's costing us a lot of money.
6:36 am
well, what's a lot. what are we getting in return for it. that's a whole other conversation. should we nuclearize it. it has come up in this very slip shot of way. when it gets to the general election, yes, it will be a different discussion, you can expect hillary clinton to weigh in on that with a certain amount of expertise and experience. >> all right, thanks for stopping by. you're like superman. do you ever sleep? i don't think so. still to come in the newsroom, president obama on a personal mission to try to repair with a key ally, saudi arabia.

6:41 am
passengers from a smaller boat were trying to transfer to a larger boat, already carrying hundreds of people. this might be the deadliest tragedy in the last year, as tens of thousands of people try to flee violence in iraq and syria. president obama and the saudi king meet today amid rising tensions. obama arriving this morn in riyadh. on the surface, they want the saudis to step up its efforts to defeat isis. behind the scenes, a laundry list of complaints. u.s. victims of 9/11 the ability to sue saudi arabia for its alleged ties to the hijackers. cnn international editor, nic robertson is in riyadh this morning with more. hi, nick. >> hi, carol. the biggest indication of where those tensions lie came when president obama arrived at the international airport here in
6:42 am
riyadh. there was no very senior high level delegation to meet in the most senior official, the governor, an important person, but not somebody of the central government, not the king, not the interior minister, not the defense minister, all these people very senior royals here in saudi arabia, none of those at the airport. that is really an early indication setting the tone for president obama for his meetings here. he is met with the king, obviously, president obama came to get support from the king, from his gulf cooperation council allies to target isis, how can they be better effective at doing that how can they be involved. can they help in iraq. all these sorts of issues are on the table. for their part, the king, the saudis, they want a ballistic defense, that they see as violence in the region. this of course a big point of tension. the saudis feel president obama,
6:43 am
united states, supports iran now, more than them. so the 9/11 commission, the 28 pages that go before congress, that's just fuel in the fire, tensions that already exist, carol. >> all right, reporting live from saudi arabia this morning. thank you. suing a foreign country is hard, but not impossible. sued the government of iran for nearly $250 million. she was killed in a terror attack 20 years while she was studying in israel. her father led the legal battle. hi hi, steven. >> good morning. >> did iran ever pay the judgment? >> no. american taxpayers did. >> how did that happen? >> there was a compromise settlement with the clinton administration back in 2001 that paid us approximately 10% of our judgment.
6:44 am
i wasn't the only family that benefited. others did as well. and that money was supposed to come from iranian assets that were brought to the united states, but it never happened. >> why didn't it happen? >> the big word is politics. the same thing that's rearing its head now with the new terrorism bill. >> interesting. so is it impossible task for these 9/11 families to bring a lawsuit, even if they were able to? >> well, the task of bringing the lawsuit is rather easy. it's collecting on the judgment that poses a problem. in our case, the state department had a heart attack when we started pursuing iranian assets. if the new legislation goes through, stop pursuing saudi arabian assets, they'll have an out right stroke and collapse. this is something that is ground breaking. it is involving an ally of the united states. whereas iran was on the
6:45 am
antiterrorism target list. they were a state sponsor of terrorism. this is going to be an interesting fight between the victims and the american government. their own government. >> well, something else that may doom, you know, this 9/11 families' efforts, the saudis have threatened to dump $750 billion worth of u.s. assets for the families, they are saying too bad, but for the government of the united states, it's another story, isn't it? >> i'm not an economist, and i am not at the treasury department, but i imagine that's nor bluster than reality, because the saudis are going to be affected with any pressure on the american currency, they're going to be affected as well. so to me, as a lay person, it sounds like a lot of talk, but you never know. >> another key argument against the 9/11 bill is it could open up the u.s. government to be sued by victims of drone strikes for instance. so the united states could also have to pay if a lawsuit is filed against saudi arabia, and that lawsuit is successful s

that a valid argument? >> if there is a -- if there is legislation in a foreign country that's similar to the legislation that we're passing here, then i suppose anything could be considered, you know, legal in that country's particular laws. so whether it is a drone strike that's deemed terrorism, when in effect, it's protecting that host country, it is up to a jury to decide. the question is, what kind of legal system do you have in the gulf region for instance? nothing finer than the american judicial system. i put faith in our system and courts here. i wouldn't put much faith in what happens in the gulf regions to be honest with you. so at any point in time, you have to reflect back, and remember, how this whole impasse with iran began. and to bring it into the court system in let's say saudi arabia, there is going to have
6:47 am
to be saudi legislation. we know what kind of system they have in saudi arabia. it is a monarchy. whatever they want to do they're going to do. it shouldn't stop america from moving forward. but then again, we're going to have a state department that's going to be let's say upset. to use a mild word. >> yes, that would be. so my final question to you is what advice would you give to the 9/11 families? >> well, be prepared for the long hall. be prepared for the fight of your life. i know it took us a number of years of almost daily involvement with the federal government and with the iranian asset location and discovery. this is going to be a different situation, because terror legislation has really moved forward. it looks as though the smoking gun in all of this is going to be released by the national security here in the united states that will either point the finger at top officials at the saudi government, or will
6:48 am
double-talk. if it's double-talk, then they're going to have their hands full. at least the dirty laundry will be out for everybody to see if they did have involvement in the 9/11 attacks. >> stephen flatow, thank you so much for being with me this morning. i appreciate it. still to come in the newsroom, to 18 months, people in flint, michigan, unknowingly drank tainted water. a significant announcement at any time. criminal charges could be filed. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair works... one week. with the... fastest retinol formula. visibly reduce wrinkles. neutrogena®.

6:53 am
flint, michigan after tainted water poisoned thousands of people. local, and state and federal officials have been pointing fingers at one another since the discovery of dangerous levels of lead. charges could be filed in the coming hours. jean car casarez knows all. >> this is a significant development and we're talking prison time if we're talking about criminal charges and potential convictions here. the attorney general of michigan declared several months ago he was appointing an independent team, former prosecutor and former head of the fbi of detroit, to look at everyone, to see what laws had been broken, if anything had been broken and it looks like today midday we're going to find out the results of that investigation, which cnn has confirmed would be criminal charges. this all started in flint because of the financial crisis in 2014, they went to the flint water system instead of the
6:54 am
detroit water system which has been healthy for them for many years and the visuals were there, brown water, people were getting sick. also, according to the civil complaints that we have, they allege that the michigan department of environmental quality was really the heart and souls this. they made decisions and knew what was going on. they allege in the civil complaint and there were studies done of the water so they knew the levels. the reality is -- and this is a fact, they did not have that corrosive agent in there so the lead couldn't seep into the pipes. >> these criminal charges could be filed against the governor, public officials, epa, anyone? >> anyone that had the knowledge. it's intent, intent to do an act, intent that you have the knowledge or gross negligence, that you knew or should have known that something like this could have happened. >> keep us posted. thanks so much. >> checking some of the top stories at 54 minutes past. another earthquake strikes

7:00 am
the greatest collection of shows free with xfinity on demand. happening now. >> thank you, new york. >> we love new york. we love new york. >> and new york loves the front-runners, now clinton looking to lockup the democratic nomination with five primaries next week. but sanders says this is still a race. >> we believe we have the momentum and we believe we have a path towards victory. >> donald trump takes on a more presidential tone. >> senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. >> saying the deal is nearly sealed but cruz and kasich fight
7:01 am
on. >> there's nothing to do with a politician winning his home state. let's talk live in the cnn "newsroom." >> we begin with a big night for the 2016 front-runners, donald trump and hillary clinton moving closer to their party's nominations and general election collision course. after surging to victory in the new york primary, trump with a route taking 60% of the vote from his rivals and john kasich with 25%. ted cruz coming in at 14%. but cruz is wasting no time hitting the campaign trail this morning. he's now in hershey, pennsylvania. you'll see him there soon. as for the democrats, hillary clinton beating bernie sanders 57% to 42%. both candidates celebrating their big victories in new york city last night.
7:02 am
>> thank you, new york! >> i can think of nowhere that i would rather have this victory. >> there's no place like home. this campaign is the only one democrat or republican to win more than 10 million votes. >> we have won millions of more votes than senator cruz, millions and millions of more votes than governor kasich. thank you, everybody and thank you, new york! we love new york! >> thank you so much! >> brianna keilar joins me live with clinton's big night. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, carol. the math is really important as we look at this delegate count between hillary clinton and bernie sanders, she widened her delegate lead over bernie sander, which is exactly the
7:03 am
opposite what sanders needed to do last night to maintain a viable path to the nomination. this is the overall count. 1930 for hillary clinton and 1223 for bernie sanders. you can see when it comes to new york, she gained 139 delegates and he gained 108. you're seeing her lead here in pledge delegates tick closer to that 300 mark. of course, her lead when it comes to all delegates, which include superdelegates much higher in the realm of 700. which is a very big lead. the sanders campaign talking about how they were making to flip the superdelegates but that's very much in question as it seems they would be rather entrenched with their decision to back hillary clinton. listen to messaging here. hillary clinton focusing more on the general election last night. bernie sanders still very much in this primary fight. >> donald trump and ted cruz are
7:04 am
pushing a vision for america that's divisive and frankly dangerous and we have a very different vision. it's about lifting each other up, not tearing each other down. so instead of building walls we're going to break down barriers. >> today we took secretary clinton on in her own state of new york and lost. i congratulate secretary clinton on her victory. next week we will be competing in pennsylvania, connecticut, rhode island and maryland and delaware. and we look forward to winning a number of those states. >> so setting up some -- pardon me. setting up some expectations there, you see bernie sanders' big day next tuesday. connecticut, rhode island, pennsylvania, maryland and delaware.
7:05 am
i'll tell you, talking to clinton campaign sources, they are feeley pretty confident about the two big fish, pennsylvania and maryland. bernie sandsers is going to really need to compete really going to be able -- need to be able to win when it comes to delegates. he has a very difficult task to move ahead of him but he has tons of money, still outraising hillary clinton. >> thank you so much. despite a double digit loss, bernie sanders vows to fight on. clinton wishes he would call it a day but can't appear to push him out of the race or his supporters will burn her, big time. so she's offering an olive branch. >> it's humbling that you trust me with the awesome responsibilities that await our next president. and to all the people who
7:06 am
supported senator sanders, i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us. >> with me now, sally cohen and phillip levine, mayor of miami beach and host of sirius xm, the mayor. welcome to both of you. >> nice to be here. >> sally, sanders supporters do not like hillary clinton and you found out -- you found that out firsthand because you were actually saying kind of same things that hillary clinton does, right? and the crowd booed you, these bernie sanders supporters booed you. why do people who feel the bern dislike hillary clinton so much? >> let's -- a little nuance to that, when i endorsed bernie sanders at his rally almost 30,000 people in brooklyn on sunday. i said, look, i'm supporting bernie sanders.
7:07 am
i like hillary clinton and agree with her 909% of the time, it's the 10% i don't that worry about. and it was that remark that led to some boos, not the entire crowd, not the majority of the crowd. but there is -- so i don't want to overstate the issue and don't want to beat around the bush and suggest there are -- there are sanders supporters who are very vit tree olically against hillary clinton for a set of reasons. i've said and i'll continue to say a lot of those people supported barack obama enthusiastically in 2008. barack obama is arguably at this point hillary clinton is running to left of barack obama. how you can do one and not the other should raise questions, including the specter of sexism. but the fact of the matter is, people need to -- i love senator sanders and continuing to support his campaign. i think he should continue to push his agenda in the democratic party and making hillary clinton a stronger candidate and at the same time sanders supporters need to realize hillary clinton is not the devil. we do agree with her on 90% if
7:08 am
not here. and the real danger is a president cruz or president trump, 100%. no question. >> so does the clinton camp worry about that? she does need some of those young voters to come on board, right? they want bernie sanders to stay in the race, no bones about if. you look at the exit polls, they excited with bernie sanders overwhelmingly against clinton. what can she say besides what she said at that rally to get them on board? >> well, carol, i think what sally said is very true. when you look at what's going on. we need a good marriage counselor, between secretary clinton sean senator sanders, but on the republican side, they need to hire a team of divorce lawyers. things are rougher over there. we're going to come together. this will take a little bit of tme. but i think our agenda, our vision is so similar. when you listen to the debates, it's senator sanders and secretary clinton saying who can help america more. >> but here's the thing, i hear
7:09 am
you but here's the thing. sanders is not giving up. his campus now targeting superdelegates and here's what his campaign manager jeff weaver said last night. let's listen. >> we'll go to a convention and it is extremely unlikely that either candidate will have the requisite number of pledged delegates to get to this number. it will be an election by the superdelegates. >> if june comes and goes and hillary clinton has won the popular vote there are going to be calls from her campaign and influential delegates for you the sanders campaign to make a decision to unite around her. instead of that you'll spend weeks in the summer trying to flip superdelegates to bernie sanders before the convention? >> at this point yes, absolutely. >> so that zntd sound like there's going to be one big happy marriage. >> when i'm listen to him, i don't see a very happy campaign manager. they are making a lot of money and senator sanders has a lot of
7:10 am
money and want to keep receiving that money. i understand that, it's okay. but listen, you don't change the rules in the middle of the game. for example, when i watch the miami heat, play the golden state warriors, curry is an incredible three-point shooter. in the middle of the game i wanted to say, we can move the line back a little bit, he's getting too many three-point shots but that's how the game is played. it's nice to want to change the rules but that's not how it's played. i believe we'll all come together. >> why is mr. weaver saying these things? >> because first of all it's his job to keep fighting on as a campaign. they haven't ended their campaign yet and hillary's campaign folks are doing well at this campaign. let's be clear. second, look, this democratic primary is about the rules. that's what we're fighting about and voting on. we're fighting about the rules that are going to govern wall street and this economy going forward. now a majority of democrats think that wall street does more harm to the economy than good. >> i understand the rules you're
7:11 am
talking about but that's not what jeff weaver is talking about. >> i think the sanders campaign is right to push this larger issue of superdelegates, where there's so much power and disproportion of power will fall on the people that get to make up their minds -- >> even without superdelegates she's way ahead. >> that's right, she is. >> and popular votes also ahead. >> 2.7 million at this point. >> the honest truth is, i think it will sway when it comes to the convention. but i do think the larger conversation about you know, disentangled the superdelegates and anti-democratic input from the process is valid. it continues to be helpful to push our paertd and hillary clinton to clarify where they stand on the issues that affect working folks and poor folks. >> it's a great civics lesson for all americans. >> thanks to both of you for
7:12 am
stopping by. >> thank you. >> now to the republicans, donald trump celebrates a blowout win after capturing 60% of the vote, picking uppal least 89 delegates and senator cruz finished in third walks away with a big fat zero. the gop front running signaling a new face of the campaign. jason carroll has more on that. >> reporter: that was a big win last night. no doubt about it, a decisive win. there's been much talk about donald trump sounding more presidential in his speech last night. there was no name calling or crooked clinton or lying ted. going forward trump is saying the numbers for senator cruz do not add up. we don't have much of a race anymore based on what i'm seeing on television. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. we have won millions of more votes than senator cruz. we're really, really rocky.
7:13 am
we can't be caught. it's impossible to catch us. >> so much last night and talk about different tones in terms of candidates and way they are addressing supporters. cruz himself had a different tone as well, positioning himself as someone who is the outsider and can unite the party and borrowing a phrase from president obama, yes, we can campaign slogan, coming up with his slogan, yes, we will. and again positioning himself as the outsider comparing himself at one point to bernie sanders. >> will we continue to live in the past with what we know no longer works? or will we move forward to a new and better place? the people in state after state have made it clear. they cry out for a new path. this is the year of the outsider. i'm an outsider. bernie sanders is an outsider.
7:14 am
>> right now you're looking at live pictures of a cruz event going on right now in hershey, pennsylvania. trump believing he is going to do well and polling well in pennsylvania, expecting to beat cruz there as well. he also tweeted out this morning, again talking about those numbers saying ted cruz is mathematically out of winning the race. all he can do is be a spoiler, never a nice thing to do. i will beat hillary. >> jason carroll reporting live for us, thanks so much. we're keeping an eye on the cruz campaign, we expect carly fiorina to take the stage and say words of support for ted cruz. i've got to take a break and i'll be back with much more in the "newsroom."

"what are you?" now i know. discover the story only your dna can tell. order your kit now at back to hershey, pennsylvania, today ted cruz is shaking off his third place finish in new york and looking ahead to the pennsylvania primary. these are live pictures out of hershey.
7:19 am
cruz is now holding a rally. i saw carly fiorina on stage. what did she say? >> reporter: senator cruz and carly fiorina trying to pick up from the rough night last night where his campaign not only lost but completely shut out of the delegates. the big question the cruz campaign is facing, what is their path to victory? what's their path to getting to 1237. we saw today senator cruz really respond in part to this question of him being now near mathematically impossible to get to the 1237 before the contended convention. moments ago in a radio interview he made a new an unee quif of coursal deck clalaration sayinge going to a contested convention, we're going to cleveland. he also went on to say he thinks donald trump won't be able to get to 1237 before the
7:20 am
convention either. that said as you noted the state by state slog does continue in pennsylvania. this is a state where the cruz campaign thinks they can be competitive. of course a very tough terrain in pennsylvania and other four states coming up next tuesday. >> reporting live from her she, pennsylvania this morning. thank you. donald trump is rubbing in his landslide victory and urging ted cruz to drop out. early this morning, tweeting ted cruz is mathematically is technically out of winning the race, he can only be a spoiler. last night trump repeated claims that the delegate system is rigged. >> nobody should be given delegates which is a ticket to victory and it's not a fair ticket and even though we're leading by a lot and can't be caught, it's impossible to catch us, nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they
7:21 am
get those delegates with voters and voting. the people aren't going to stand for it. it's a crooked system and it's a system that's rigged and we're going to go back to the old way, it's called you vote and you win. >> with me now is alice stewart, ted cruz's communication director and jeff dewitt. thank you to both of you. >> thanks, carol. >> alg is, senator cruz won zero delegates in new york. many would say he has as much a chance of catching trump as john kasich does. why is senator cruz still in the race? >> first after all, that's an absurd way of looking this. it's expected donald trump would win his home state. and i'll remind you -- zpl he hoped to gain some delegates. >> swept the last five contests. we swept several of the last
7:22 am
contests, donald trump received zero delegates as well. i'm here to remind you, this was expected for him to win and the last five contest we have swept, wyoming, wisconsin, colorado and north dakota. many of those states donald trump won zero delegates. we're winning because ted cruz is winning over the hearts and minds of people of this country. our grass roots are on the rise and rising up. we're reaching out to people in the states and they connect with ted and grass roots organizing, motivating supporters on the field has led to recent victories and as we move forward down the primary calendar, we expect to continue to do the same. we have a positive message and as ted said last night, americans have an opportunity to choose the consistent conservative moving forward and the momentum -- >> let me get this question in because a lot of people would argue the momentum is not with ted cruz at the moment and he
7:23 am
lashed out at sean hannity on his radio show. listen. >> all of this noise and complaining and whining has come from the trump campaign because they don't like the fact that they've lost five elections in a row, that republicans are uniting behind our campaign, they are screaming and it's getting echoed. this notion of voterless election. it is nonsense. they are making it up. when the delegates are elected, conservative activists show up and they elect delegates and we're winning those elections over and over again. the donald trump campaign doesn't know what they are doing. i cannot help that the donald trump campaign does not seem capable of running a lemonade stand. >> so senator cruz has some success in winning over delegates and that is the american way, that's how our country and voting election system is set up. so is senator cruz right? >> no, he's absolutely not right.
7:24 am
i'll go back to what you first said. and even touching on what alice said. donald trump won his home state with over 60% of the vote. he's the only one of the three that even cleared the halfway mark. think about texas. senator cruz in texas couldn't even get halfway. 57% of texas voted against ted cruz in his home state. and donald trump took one third of the delegates in texas. if his home state won't vote for him in an overwhelming fashion, how can he expect to win the country. kasich got 46% in his home state of ohio. it's a mandate by voters, 60.5%. ted cruz getting zero delegates and to hear the ted cruz people try to paint this as a positive, is like watching the old iraqi information minister baghdad bob. it's that ridiculous. >> on the other hand, a lot of republicans are nervous about a trump candidacy because they don't believe whether trump can
7:25 am
beat hillary clinton. cnn sat down with the house speaker yesterday, paul ryan, urging nervous republicans who might want to skip the gop convention because it would i am pearl them in their elections to attends the convention. listen. >> if you were planning on going to the convention, you should go. i think it could be a great historical exercise. it could be something that you'll remember for the rest of your life. i would go if i had a chance to go. >> so i don't know, alice, what do you think about that? >> i think first off, one thing is important to note, during the texas primary there were more candidates in the race and that was an open primary. that is one factor to keep in mind. in terms of donald trump as a leader. it's inee quif of coursally clear, he would be a failed leader. he is a failed leader. that is what's concerning to republicans and those in the republican establishment and grass roots republicans and
7:26 am
conservatives across the country. look at his business life, he seems to be such a great leader, bring on the best team and brightest and lead them to victory. in his personal life and business life, trump u, a disaster, four bankruptcies, several failures and all because of a complete failed leadership mindset -- that is not the way -- >> yjeff the last word. >> that is why people are concerned about trump -- >> i get it. jeff. >> the funny thing for me, alice five months ago getting paid by a different campaign and saying terrible things about ted cruz. now ted cruz is paying her she's a political hitman of sorts. donald trump has built a $10 billion empire and hired tens and thousands of people. ted cruz has never run a business or lemonade stand. i don't know how he can criticize when ted cruz hasn't done as much as that.
7:27 am
that's the reason that donald trump has 2.5 million more votes than ted cruz. yes, is the establishment going to stay home from the convention? sure, they don't want to be near it because the grass roots republicans are taking our country and party back and that's why going to beat hillary in the fall. come next tuesday, ted cruz will be completely wiped off the map. >> we're watching this cruz rally in hershey, pennsylvania ptaking the stage at any moment now. he's walking up -- can i see him in there? he's walking up right now. i want to dip in and listen to a little bit of what he has to say. he gave an interesting speech yesterday about bringing the party together it appeared that he tried to appear very presidential and claimed he was the outsider candidate by comparing himself to bernie sanders and even invoked the name of jfk and ronald reagan as a way he could get democrats and republicans to unite and bring the country together.
7:28 am
he also vowed to run a much more positive campaign and talk about what would make america great again. you can see carly fiorina on stage. gave a rousing speech to supporters talking up her candidate, even though he won absolutely no delegates in the state of new york. let's listen. >> god bless the commonwealth of pennsylvania. and god bless hershey, pennsylvania! or as my daughter believe it must be heaven. my daughters are convinced there are rivers of chocolate with kisses everywhere you look. so i am thrilled to be here and thrilled to be here with so many patriots that love our nation.
7:29 am
>> thank you for the incredible job you're doing leading our team here in the state. and how about carly? [ applause ] >> isn't she fantastic? what an incredible powerful principled leader. and let me tell you something, carly terrifies hillary clinton. i can just picture hillary thinking about carly, tossing and turning and tossing and turning in her jail cell.
7:30 am
you know, all of us, we're here this morning because our country is in crisis, because we're bankrupting our kids and grand kids. because our constitutional rights are under assault. and because america has receded from leadership in the world and it's made the world a much more dangerous place. and yet i'm here this morning with a word of hope and encouragement. all across pennsylvania and all across this country, people are waking up and help is on the way. [ applause ] this next election is going to be about three issues --
7:31 am
>> you hear a bit of senator ted cruz talking to supporters in hershey, pennsylvania, that is included in the next round of states to vote in this very interesting primary we're having right now. i've got to take a break. i'll be back with much more in the "newsroom." 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.

a transgender student born female but identifies as male, the ruling covers five states, including virginia and north carolina. it could be a big boost for opponents of north carolina's so-called bathroom law affecting transgender people. the virginia case pre-dates north carolina's new law and hinged on title nine. the federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in schools. north carolina's governor said the ruling was disappointing. >> i think that's bad precedent and i don't think it's traditional way we do things.
7:43 am
the way i think we should have done them, allow high schools to make appropriate arrangements for those students who have unique circumstances but this is the federal government, very similar to the charlotte government forcing something brand-new standards that we've never seen before. >> gavin grim is the 11th grader who sued to use the boy's bathroom at his high school. thank you for joining me. >> are you feeling victorious this morning? >> yeah, i'm feeling pretty good how everything has happened. >> tell me about this fight. because you've been at it a long time. how has it been for you. >> well, i mean, of course it's been very hard and very exhausting at times and difficult as well, but i definitely think the end has justified the means in this case and it's been worth it. >> so are you now allowed to use the boy's restroom? >> we haven't really talked
7:44 am
about the specifics where that's concerned so right no i'm not sure how that's being settled. but i haven't been back to school since the ruling anyway. >> i was just going to ask you, how have other students reacted to all of this. >> well, you know, i don't know. i've gotten a lot of support from my friends, supporting messages, but i haven't been in school like i said so i'm not sure. >> when you listen to north carolina's governor say that it should be left up to individual high schools to work out how the restroom should be used. what goes through your mind? well, i respect he has an opinion and that's fine by me. i can't really -- you know, i guess speak to what his stance on it is. but the federal court ruled in a different way than what he thinks is preferable and that's fine. >> what do you think everyone is so afraid of?
7:45 am
>> i'm not sure because when you consider certain i guess arguments or what have you, it doesn't stand up to scrutiny. a lot of it is misinformation and people haven't had a chance to really deal with transgender people in any meaningful way. >> some of the fear comes through that i guess you'll go in the boy's restroom and do something -- it's just -- i don't know. i'll ask you again, what is it they fear you'll go in there and do something wrong or look at someone in a way you shouldn't or what? >> i'm not positive. i understand -- i've heard what p people say but i don't think it stands up to scrutiny. >> will you go back to school? >> yeah, definitely. i'm not like out on hiatus or anything like that. i hadn't been since. >> why not? >> just because when the ruling came down i've been very busy, i
7:46 am
was taking a day to collect everything done that i needed to get done. >> do you envision a day when you don't have to talk about which restroom you'll be able to use? >> certainly. i think it's unfortunately we had to talk about did in this case but hopefully this ruling will make steps towards a future where they won't have to happen anymore. >> a lot of entertainers have become involved and in fact in north carolina, in light of passage of the law there, a lot of music groups have pulled out, a lot of businesses say they won't do business in north carolina anymore. how does that make you feel? >> it's em boldening and very nice these people have choichose a positive stance and it shows a message of solidarity and message that says this does have effects not just on the people that the bill is targeting but on everybody. >> what is the one thing you
7:47 am
would like everybody to understand about trans gender people? >> i mean, i guess just that we're people. we're not this weird alien thing or concept. we're people that are trying to live their life and be theirselves. >> gavin grimm, thanks for joining me, i appreciate it. still to come in the "newsroom." what may be the deadliest migrant tragedy this year. the heartbreaking details from europe next.
