"first look" is up next. it's wednesday, march 30th. right now on "first look," turning up the heat on donald trump's campaign manager who is facing a criminal charge for battery. but the donald is not backing down. >> she was running up and grabbing and asking questions and she wasn't supposed to be doing that. i think he -- i told him, you should never settle this case, go all the way. i think they have really hurt a very good person. the clock is tickingen the remaining gop candidates as the wisconsin vote looms large and where trump could close the deal. could apple now force the government to show them how they may have cracked the san bernardino iphone? plus, the top ten new cars.
2:01 am
the passing of an acting legend. a one of a kind shot for golfer bubba watson. "first look" starts right now. good morning. thanks for joining us today, i'm betty nguyen. stand by your man. that's the tone from donald trump after his campaign manager corey lewandowski was arrested yesterday. he's charged with one count of misdemeanor battery. police say in video released shows lewandowski grabbing now ex-breitbart reporter michelle fields' arm. he turned himself in to police yesterday and he was issued a notice to appearncourt. his attorney says he's innocent. nbc's edward lawrence joins us live from washington. what's the latest in all of this? >> reporter: well, betty, all the reactions played out in a town hall in wisconsin yesterday. there were accusations and explanations. as the republican candidates tried to convince wisconsin voters to choose them.
2:02 am
senator ted cruz, donald trump, then governor john kasich tried to sway wisconsin voters during a town hall ahead of next week's important primary in the state. a defiant trump defended his campaign manager corey lewandowski in the wake of a battery charge against him. >> i'm a loyal person. i'm going to be loyal to the country. i'm going to be loyal to wisconsin. we have to tell it like it is. it would be so easy for me to terminate in man, ruin his life. >> reporter: trump said he won't fire lewandowski even though the video shows him grabbing a reporter in southern florida. ted cruz fresh off an endorsement by wisconsin governor scott walker -- >> i have chosen to endorse ted cruz. >> reporter: says it shows a greater problem. >> now physical violence. that has no place in a political campaign and it has no place in our democracy. >> reporter: kasich agrees. >> if it was me, if i was in this circumstance, i would take -- i would take some sort of action. either suspension or firing.
2:03 am
>> reporter: hillary clinton applauded the reporter for following through on the incident. >> it certainly suggests that the authorities thought that her story was credible. >> reporter: in a surprise move, donald trump during that town hall said that he could not support a gop nominee that was not him if that's what the process proved. betty? >> thank you for that. you have to watch this, because last night, lewandowski's attorney bradford cohen he appeared on "all in" with chris hays. >> you're totally delusional, i never touched you. i never met you. you have to concede that's not true. >> what i concede when i look at the videotape is that it occurred over half a second. if you're at a baseball game and you brush against someone, and someone the next day says i was thrown to the ground or i was almost thrown to the ground, you're going to say that person is delusional because certainly
2:04 am
it is delusional. >> i never touched you is not true, we're looking at the tape of him touching her. >> it certainly looks he brushes by her. like i said before, he doesn't know who he was. >> do you know it makes you seem delusional if you concede the thing we're looking at. we're all looking at the video. well on the democratic side, bernie sanders is campaigning hard in wisconsin trying to build on momentum from his weekend wins ahead of next week's big primary. sanders went after wisconsin governor scott walker. >> in other words, you can get a pretty good understanding of what i'll do as president by looking at scott walker and seeing -- and saying i will do exactly the opposite. i am sure there are areas we agree on but i haven't seen them yet. >> the sanders campaign is also declaring victory after hillary clinton says she welcomes adding a democratic debate in new york ahead of the april 19th primary.
2:05 am
the clinton campaign originally says sanders' call for another debate was a stunt. be sure to watch msnbc tonight for exclusive candidate town halls. john kasich sits down with chuck todd at 7:00 and followed by trump joining chris matthews at 8:00. then at 9:00, hillary clinton and bernie sanders will be one-on-one in a special edition of "the rachel maddow show." as many break on the opposition to meet with merrick garland, the high court is seeing the reverberation of of antonin scalia's death. the court split its decision on public unions 4-4. this is the second one since scalia's death. it leaves a lower court's ruling in place. state worker unions can continue to collect fees from those who choose not to join since they enjoy the benefits of contract negotiations. but based on the past comments, justice scalia was expected to rule against allowing unions to charge nonmembers. the man accused of hijacking

an egyptair passenger jet is due in court this morning. he's identified as seif eldin mustafa. he passed through the airport in alexandria with personal items that he used to imply he was wearing an explosive belt. he demanded that the plane be diverted to cyprus where his ex-wife lives. then he finally surrendered to authorities but not before posing for this selfie with a passenger? really? fortunately, none of the passengers or the crew was injured. all right. so we are getting new details on how the fbi was able to hack the iphone of san bernardino shooter sayed farooq without apple's help. they turned overseas for assistance.

2:08 am
continue to work with investigators. but people around the world deserve privacy and security. the fbi assistant director in charge, david bowdich says i'm satisfied that we have access to more answers than we did before. >> the fbi has now shown that there's a way of getting in, and that will make people feel insecure. >> reporter: it's unclear what information if any will come from farook's iphone and whether the fbi will tell apple how it hacked it so the tech giant can make the rest of their devices more secure. miguel almaguer, nbc news, los angeles. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. good morning, landon. >> hey, there. good morning to you. there's no shortage of new cars on the market but which are the worst of the lot? consumer reports tackled the challenge looking for the lowest rated based on safety. the mitsubishi mirage, fiat 500
