>> two specific targets were mentioned. they were the intended target of yet another plot. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning. welcome to your "new day". it is monday, april 11th, 6:00 in the east. donald trump returns four days after huddling with aides to retool the campaign. blasting colorado as unfair. cruz's campaign is dismissing trump after having sour grapes after he swept all of colorado's delegates. >> all this and bernie sanders rachets up a war of words saying "something is clearly lacking" in her judgment. democratic rivals set to face off on thursday. can sanders pull off an upset in
new york? we have the race covered only as cnn can. donald trump launching a new attack. his target, the delegate system. look to colorado where cruz's campaign outplayed donald trump's campaign over the weekend. that has donald trump and his top aides crying foul. >> we've got a corrupt system. it's not right. we're supposed to be a democracy. >> donald trump back on the campaign trail in new york after spending four days laying low. >> we've got to have a system where voting means something. doesn't it have to mean something? >> criticizing the delegates system after a string of losses and state battles dominated by ted cruz's campaign organization and issuing a warning to the republican national committee. >> you're going to have a big problem, folks because there are people who don't like what's going on. >> top adviser, paul manafort,
alleging that the cruz campaign is threatening trump's delegates. >> you go to these conventions and you see the guess stapp toe tactics. >> cruz campaign calls it sour grapes saying, it's no surprise that trump's team will lash out with falsehoods who facing a loss to distract from their failure. trump take to go social media tweeting, the people of colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. biggest story in politics. this will not be allowed! this back and forth coming just a day after cruz went after trump over electability while courting top donors in las vegas. >> if donald is the nominee, poll after poll shows him losing by double digits. we are looking at a bloodbath of walter mondale proportions.
>> republican front-runner absent from sunday talk shows yesterday for the first time in four months. now, i spoke with a senior trump campaign official that said they were woe. ly undermanned in colorado. still, their top line point remains the same. their goal, get to the 1,237, the magic delegate number before the convention. then they don't have the to worry about any of this. michaela >> bernie sanders is no longer questioning whether hillary clinton has the ability to be judgment. now he is questioning her judgment. joe johns is live in washington with more on that for us. good morning. good morning, michaela.
the two democrats fanning the flames of issues from last week. sanders opened up a new line of attacking suggesting she may not be qualified. sanders was using different words. hillary clinton for her part appearing to try to continue to take the high road on the issue. listen. >> she may have the experience to be president of the united states. no one can argue that. but in terms of a judgment, something is clearly lacking. >> look, i've said repeatedly that i would take him over donald trump or ted cruz any day. i think people know that i will be a president who will follow through on what i've said. >> meanwhile on sunday, secretary clinton appearing at a church headed by a former democratic member of the congressional black caucus, revisiting another dust-up from last week when her husband traded words with protesters
over a signing of the 1994 crime bill. hillary clinton addressing how she had the criminal justice system has made people "heart sick." bernie sanders expected to appear at an event in new york. he was quick to defend hillary clinton suggesting her e-mail practices did not jeopardize national security. the president says there has been no political influence in the justice department investigation of her private e-mail server. athena jones has more. what have we learned? good morning, alisyn. this was interesting on several fronts. this clinton e-mail issue doesn't come up a lot on the democratic side of this fight. but certainly republicans are bringing it up and will continue to do so. we heard the president defend her while acknowledging a bit of carelessness on her part when it
came to how she managed those he e-mails. >> i continue to believe she has not jeopardized america's national security. now, what i have alsoed, and she's acknowledged, that there's a carelessness in terms of managing e-mails that she has owned and she otherwises. but i also think it is important to keep this in perspective. this is somebody who served her country four years as secretary of state and did an outstanding job. >> stopping short of a full endorsement there. it was also interesting to hear the president echo some of what we heard about the classification process, saying sometimes information labeled top secret is super sensitive. other times not as much. we also heard the president talk about his hopes for his supreme
court pick, to pick a replacement for justice ska is leah. many republicans said they wouldn't sit down with judge garland. now some are sitting down with him. he hopes he can still get a meeting. when asked about foreign policy, take a listen. >> probably failing to plan for the day after what i think was the right thing to do in intervening in libya. >> a revealing moment. the president talking about his biggest mistake in the area of on foreign policy. that country has become a haven for isis. >> interesting interview to be sure. other big news this morning, new
details emerging in the investigation into the brussels bombing. a belgian prosecutor say terrorists planned to attack france again just months after carrying out the massacre in paris. kelly morgan live in brussels on what has changed the plans. what do we know, kelly? >> well, chris, they believe the police were closing in after the arrest on paris terror suspect salah abdeslam. the men bombed the airport in the metro station. details about the plot are from a computer called by ibrahim el bakraoui. on their computer there was data and two targets were listed. the business district and catholic association in paris.
now, interesting this information comes on it just days after the most wanted man in europe, mohammed abrini, was arrested, pounced on after he walked down the street. abrini has been wanted since the attacks in november. finally arrested here. interesting that we would start to hear about this paris plot just days after he was arrested. we do know he has been talking to police. as you say, he has confessed to being the third airport bomber. it is another thing whether police completely believe him. >> cia director john brennan making it clearwater boarding is no longer part of his agency's practices. he is speaking out because tactics and techniques are turning into catch phrases on the campaign trail. he had he would not carry out instructions to waterboard.
john kerry making history this morning by becoming the first u.s. secretary of state to ever visit hiroshima. he laid a wreath at the memorial but did not apologize for the u.s. dropping an atomic bomb on the city at the end of world war ii. it claimed 140,000 lives. bond is set at $1 million for the suspect who allegedly shot and killed former new orleans saints football player will smith. coy wire has the latest live from cnn in atlanta. a terrible, terrible story. well beyond sports. what's the latest? indeed, chris. i have reached out and spoken to several former teammates. he said will was just getting excited about his life after football. he was expected to walk in his graduation in less than a month.
he had an even greater impact in the new orleans community. >> new details emerging over the apparent road rage killing of beloved new orleans saints defensive end will smith. police say this man 30-year-old cardell hayes exchanged words after rear ending his car at a new orleans intersection saturday night. hayes pulled out a handgun, gunning down the super bowl champion and shooting his wife in the leg. hours earlier, smith writing, having a blast. >> raquel is at the hospital recovering, surrounded by her family, praying she has the strength to get through this. >> police are investigating whether the relationship between smith and a former police officer, billy saravallo, dining with smith an hour before his
murder had anything to do with the shooting. the reason, the former officer was involved in the 2005 killing of the gunman's father. in a decade old federal lawsuit filed by the gunman, hayes called saravallo and five others used excessive force after he lunged at them with a small pocketknife. >> we do not have anything to suggestion they knew each other or it was an accident that turned into a dispute. >> an outpouring of grief over new orleans saints most famous players. reggie bush writing. you were a great man and did so much good for so many people in new orleans. you will be greatly missed. as a former player, i remember getting emotional just when a teammate was cut from the team. one player was getting choked up on the phone when i spoke to him last night. another one of smith's teammates said he's not yet emotional.
he said i have a a knot in my stomach because that could have been me in the car with him. i can't imagine how his wife and kids are feeling. chris. >> as you are hearing and passing along, this is not only a man great on the field. he meant just as much and more off it. thanks for keeping us up to date on this one. at 7:00, we will talk to the head of the new orleans saints hall of fame. he will talk about the widespread reaction to the death of will smith. a dominant defense president was supposed to be added to the hall this fall. that will still happen with a posthumous election. "snl" pokes a little fun at clinton. oh, you've got to see it. >> i better put on my favorite hat a that i have worn so many times over the years. here we go. that will keep me warm while i
eat my favorite dinner, a classic new york city classic street dog. you know what my favorite part of new york city is, the subway. i love riding it. here is me riding it earlier today. >> the new york city subway is the best way to get around. i'll just go in the old-fashioned way. i'll take a cab. the cab is the best way to get around. >> it is so insulting when it happens when you are trying to swipe and go. >> when there are tons of cameras around. she doesn't know,000 wear a baseball cap. >> that is not a fair test,
though. i have bashed into that many times. i thought that was my chance to make it after the interview. i thought the laugh and all the hoopla around it. >> eight days until the critical new york primary. the candidates sharp issening their attacks. will bernie sanders upset hillary clinton here? can ted cruz derail donald trump? the fight for the empire state next on "new day". if i want to go up... hello. or if i want to go down... no. but then if i want to come back again... yes. it's perfect. my favorite part is to be able to lift your legs up a little bit and it feels like i'm just cradled.

eight days until the new york primary. the trump campaign directing some of his harshest rhetoric over cruz's fight for delegates. >> you go to these conventions and you see the gestapo tactics. >> that's a strong word. >> well, we're going to be filing several protests. reality is they're not playing by the rules. >> all right.
that's trump's new convention manager paul manafort. he is talking about after cruz had picked up all 34 pledge delegates in colorado this weekend. joining us to talk about all of this is ron brownstein and jackie kucinich. great to see both of you guys. happy monday. >> good morning. >> jackie, let's talk about this. trump had this four-day conspicuous absence from the campaign trail. he came roaring back on twitter to talk about how he thinks what's happening in colorado and elsewhere is unfair and basically a perversion of the one person, one vote democracy we all think of. he said the people of colorado had their vote taken away from them by the phony politicians. biggest story in politics. this will not be allowed. what's he talking about, jackie? >> i just don't think tknew the
rules they were going into. colorado has a several month-long selection process. the cruz campaign was ready for it. it misprinted two sets of ballots to actually be selected correctly. >> a big concern, ron, is this a metaphor of what's to come? this game gets a lot more tactical. >> they have been counting on the big win. it may still be enough to get them there. what's increasingly clear, if he
does not get the first ballot, it will get tougher for him. he can make all of this moot by winning out and doing well enough in the final stages of this campaign to get over the top. it is clear that in the nonprimary contest, the caucuses and conventions where those have been utilized, the lack of organization has come back to haunt donald trump. >> you say these are the rules. and they are the rules. they are wildly convoluted. listen to this. this is how maeve reston explained what happened in colorado. in the final rounds vying candidates vying to be one of the candidates lined up along the walls of a ballroom waiting to deliver campaign speeches. you have 10 second go. a party official barked as the first candidate stepped to the microphone. delegates aligned with cruz won
again and again. that is really not what most americans think of when they think their vote is going to count if they turn out to a primary. >> back in august this is what they chose. it could have been a mary. they didn't. this is what they chose to do. i don't think many of us would select that way to elect a delegate. it is a state-by-state process. >> a alisyn, can i real quick? >> go ahead, ron. >> to your point, alisyn, i think although that was a process and those are the rules and ted cruz played by the rules, it is true that the level of radical transparency and the fundamental change where we are seeing every delegate matter, which may be lasting giving the
changes of media and money, i'm not sure they can survive this level of scrutiny. i do think it is important colorado has 5,000 people picking instead of several hundred,000. >> it has been echoed years and years. come election day when people walk in, you see all the confusion with the names. older people asking for help. other older people saying they can't help them. let's preufd to the other side of the race. jackie, do you believe what's going on with sanders right now is new? those are all the headlines i question his judgment. his point seems to be exactly the same just put into context. what's your take? >> bernie sanders has been saying this a different way he
every time. he questions clinton's judgment. he got away from it when he questioned her experience and that backfired on him. now there is more scrutiny. new york is so important to both candidates. there is a wish to sort of win big. if they manage to pull off an upset in new york, it will do wondering going forward. >>. >> hillary clinton with a fox news poll has 53% given to clinton. and 37% to sanders. is there any way there's an upset? >> yeah. it's tough. it is the ingredients that had been the toughest for bernie sanders. it is a closed primary. i believe all the primaries he has won have been in open
states. it is to dominate the finals of the race. the problem it got is you first have this gauntlet of states in the northeast that fit this description. the first two are diverse. california may be an upset at the very end. >> thank you. >> a big week of politics with a new twist on the presidential town hall. three night >> tony: town hall event. on stage answering voter questions. ohio tpwofrpbor john kasich will be joined by his wife and daughters. tuesday, donald trump and

abrini. remember this guy on the surveillance video at the airport prior to the attack? is he relevant? can he be believed? and what was this plan about paris. we have correspondent for politico ryan heath. he has big reporting on this. and cnn contributor michael weiss, author of "isis inside the terror of truth." they were looking at paris again. how do we know and what is the detail? >> well, we don't know exactly where they were planning to hit. but it's a sigh of relief potentially for germany who thought they were really next in the firing line. but i think that the underlying detail here is the most worrying which shows that the cell is deeper than previously expected. there are a number of people who have been grooming dozens of these fighters training in syria
and that they really were prepared and able to go forward with repeat attacks. so that doesn't mean any of the people investigating know exactly what target was set up by these people who are now arrested. but it does give a strong sense there are extra layers they need to be searching for. we suspected there would be a couple dozen or more people still out there. that's what everyone still suggests. >> you have another headline about what's going on with the metro reopening in brussels. what that means abroad. let's go one step deeper on what ryan just told us. my sources inside the community specifically are saying, yeah, we're not surprised they wanted to come here again. what they struggled with is why us? when you look at the situation there, why would paris be a consistent target? >> because it is the most
extensive of all their foreign fighter apparatus. european nationals are rising in the ranks of isis's security sources. a french national was the former police chief of their headquarters of isis's foreign intelligence. he is now senior, in charge of all european operations. another guy is a french national, not even on muslim, a white french guy who converted to islam who i'm told is very senior in the organization. if you speak french and you have been trained up and been sent back, chances are you're going to be a very, very high list of people to carry out the attacks. >> what's your plus/minus on this the guy. >> i'm sure he is. >> what can you believe and how much of it. >> they always give you kernels
of truth wrapped in false haohf. it seems to me salah abdeslam. >> the guy with the vest that wasn't used. >> it seems like he has been cooperating. i would be very surprised if things he has given over to the belgian or other services at this point did not lead to some of these recent captures. you have half a dozen in custody, including abrini. when you capture someone alive, it doesn't matter from the battle field or europe, it leads to this effect of getting more and more people. you get human intelligence, which is one thing the europeans have been so bad at. >> and that's what sources hearsay. the problem is the guys they capture have so much leverage. so little is known about the network. you don't know how long they are stringing you along to keep the game going. back to you, ryan. the word that the metro is reopening. what do we know about the safety there.
how does that reporting project on the common concerns of other big cities with metros? >> it's the same old story again here, chris. fragmentation between the different levels of belgian authority. 12 of the 69 stations open today. two-thirds of the network up and running again. on the promise that all of those stations would be patrolled with a mix of police and military. unlike that maalbeek station where the bomb went off. some of the stations i've been to already today, no staff, no military patrols. although brussels regional said every tunnel, every bring is getting swept to make sure it's clear. still questions hanging over the network of are they doing enough criminal checks on the people that are currently staffing the network. are they doing enough to get it operating. and why isn't there an
anti-terror squad like london, new york, washington, d.c., for dealing with these types of threats. >> we keep hearing from the authorities there it's not about intentionality but money as well. thank you, as always. an epic meltdown at the masters. jordan spieth cruising towards his second green jacket when the unthinkable happens. the all-new audi a4, with available virtual cockpit. ♪ if you misplace your you can use freeze it to prevent new purchases on your account in seconds. and once you find it, you can switch it right on again. you're back! freeze it from discover. get it at discover.com. he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so he knows exactly when he can settle in and think big.

of this. i think they have a short attention span. this will be something we pay attention to. >> you make a good point, sarah kate. media would argue there is a short attention span. >> we have seen a tremendous amount of backlash. i don't think it's a one trick pony. i think each time one of these comes up, you will see a lot of people standing up and taking a stand against them. because this is not the -- this is not american values. this is not how we do business in america. hate and discrimination have no place in our country. >> look in your crystal ball a little bit, larry. do you think this is a turning
point? >> it is. 100 of these pending elsewhere. i think people who are thinking about passing these bills may think twice about it. it is just not worth the attention. they will try to -- >> some are seeing this another way of getting what they wanted accomplished by introducing these bills. this has the optic effect but the bottom line effect. >> exactly. >> larry, kate, thank you so much for joining us. we will talk about this for some time. we will turn to you for your voice. we are following a lot of news on this monday, including donald trump back on the trail. let's get to it. a candidate like secretary clinton, i have my doubts about what kind of president she would make. >> in three weeks, in 10 elections in a row we have beaten donald trump. >> we keep losing where we're winning. >> donald trump or ted cruz. they're the also dangerous.
>> they are trying to hurt the movement with crooked shenanigans. >> we are now learning that brussels wasn't the initial target. it was paris. >> authorities confirm the brussels bombings and the paris attacks carried out by the same isis network. >> new details emerging over the apparent road rage killing of beloved new orleans saints defensive end will smith. >> we are praying she has the strength to get through this. >> one life is over and another life is ruined. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. >> welcome to "new day". donald trump on the trail after a four-day absence to retool his campaign. polls show he can afford to lay low. trump back in a attack mode blasting the colorado republican party delegate selection process
as totally unfair. and his new convention manager is going after ted cruz, using cruz of gestapo tactics after a sweep in colorado this weekend. and bernie sanders going at clinton on two levels. one, he is saying "something is clearly lacking in her judgment". and that she is skopbd sending to young voters, especially african-american voters. they are set to face off on cnn in a debate on thursday. that's going to be the big moment that all of these charges get put to them. the latest is donald trump and his team are crying foul when it comes to the delegate system. a system that ted cruz is clearly taking advantage of in his race to try and become the gop nominee. we've got a corrupt system.
it's not right. we're supposed to be a democracy. >> donald trump back on the campaign trail in new york after spending four days laying low. >> we've got to have a system where voting means something. doesn't it have to mean something? >> criticizing the delegates system after a string of losses and state battles dominated by ted cruz's campaign organization and issuing a warning to the republican national committee. >> you're going to have a big problem, folks because there are people who don't like what's going on. >> top adviser, paul manafort, alleging that the cruz campaign is threatening trump's delegates. >> you go to these conventions and you see the guess stapp toe tactics. >> cruz campaign calls it sour grapes saying, it's no surprise that trump's team will lash out
washington, new york. back to you, chris. >> all right, joe. a new state of play between the democrats here in new york. so let's get it on and discuss. we have former ohio state senator and surrogate for bernie sanders 2016 nina turner. and democratic congressman from new york and hillary clinton supporter representative hakim
jeffre jeffreys. it matters in new york as much or more than any state in the union. let's listen first to what former president bill clinton had to say about the issue that had been dogging hillary clinton about the word predators and what it means as a perspective on the african-american community. and bernie sanders latest response to it. here they are back to back. >> i don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out on the street to murder other african-american children. maybe you thought they were good citizens. she didn't. she didn't. you are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. tell the truth. >> i think we all know what that term meant when in the context that it was said years ago. we know who they were talking
about. that's exactly right. that's who it was. and i think that the president owes the american people an apology for trying to defend what is indefensible. >> nina turner, what is bernie sanders doing here? >> well, chris, it's very clear. i mean, president clinton cannot on one hand apologize before the naacp and come face-to-face with leaders, women he in fact, called girls and played blamed them for the policies of the 1990s. it does not make sense. we cannot be the firewall in 2016. senator bernie sanders had it just write. the president does owe the american people an apology.
predator is bad enough. adding super predator adds another dimension. >> congressman? >> desperate candidates say desperate things. what we have seen is that senator bernie sanders has consistently lost the vote decisively. there's a reason for that. secretary clinton has been supporting issues of importance to the african-american community going all the way back to her early days as an attorney with the children's defense fund, fighting against the incarceration of stearns in adult prisons. as first lady in arkansas, she created a civil legal services that provided legal representation to thousands of individuals, many of whom were african-american. in the 1990s, she was a leader in helping to put into place the children's health insurance program, which was a bridge between medicare and the affordable care act. many children now have health
coverage. then of course as a senator for eight years here in new york, she consistently stood on the side of importance for issues of african-american people. so dusting off a word that she used in the 1990s that sleds was a poor choice and would never use again. >> the secretary should get that message to the president. if that is how she really feels, she needs to get that message to president clinton. desperate people do desperate things. and the clinton campaign is very desperate right now. when we talk about consistency, let's talk about consistency. senator sanders has been consistent. he put his body on the line in the 1960s as a young man. he was arrested. he had to pay a fine for standing up against racism. he didn't change his position based on the time. in 2008, president obama was not
qualified according to senator clinton. but now they are besties. so let's talk about consistency. sanders has stood up for the working poor and the middleclass in this country. he doesn't change his message based on what will resonate with the voters. the american people are sick and tired of being used for convenience. >> let me ask you one point of clarification. does the sanders campaign, do you believe that hillary clinton holds bad ideas where african-americans are involved? that she sees them as predators? >> the bottom line is this. we can't be super red tors one day and a firewall the next. even at the black girls rock. even the words coming out of her mouth today, black women have written and you can go all over social media, they felt it was empty. some in the african-american community do feel used. we need to have this
conversation about what it means and what african-americans need in a broader range since we are the loyalist base to the party. the secretary enjoy the history not the brand loyalty. she has been running for president the last eight years, and had the benefit of a national profile since the 1990s. and sanders has just come in in the last 11 months. in terms of standing up for bad trade deals, universal health care, he doesn't go to a deal signing for $15 an hour but refuses to support that on the federal level. he has been consistent. >> senator sanders promised us to campaign on issues. but as soon as the new york primary process began he just launched one attack on hillary
clinton after another can which have no anchoring in he is someone who appears to be all talk no action. when you study his record i can't find any meaningful evidence of him bringing about social and economic change. senator sanders was a mayor for eight years. he was in the house of representatives for 16. he's united states senator for 10. that's 34 years of public service. i would ask the senator, can you actually provide me with any meaningful evidence that he has actually brought about the political revolution that he's talking about. when you look at his record, i see several things. he voted five times against background checks. he voted twice to shield gun manufacturers on liability. the leading cause of death for african-american young men is homicide by gun violence. is and senator sanders actually not only has been missing in
action, he's done nothing about it. he's been on the wrong side of the issue. that's why we see this type of desperation in these attacks. let's talk about issues and a vision for moving forward. you referenced president obama. president obama found hillary clinton qualified enough to bring her on as a top cap net. >> final word. >> congressman, let's be real here. let's tell the truth here. senator sanders led efforts to stop tpp. all trade deals to protect jobs in this country. that's tell the truth about the consistency and the honesty going on here. in terms of president obama, i'm sick and tired of the clinton campaign riding the back of president obama. in 2008, he was not qualified. her 3:00 a.m. commercial that was a dog whistle but all of a sudden they are besties.
you know he has been a consist can epbt champion for working class people. he led the city of burlington, have the is the with honor and distinction, and he continues to lead as a senator in the congress right now today. so let's roll the tape. let's compare what he said 30 or 40 years ago to the secretary's record up to this point. and you will see who has been the most honest and consistent champion. >> we have rolled the tape. and african-americans throughout, including your state of ohio, concluded that secretary clinton is best qualified. >> it is brand loyalty going on more than anything. if they peel back the layers they know who is the consistent champion for civil rights and jobs in the united states of america and that is bernie sanders. >> we'll see which way it goes. thanks to both of you for making the case. appreciate it. all right. we're doing this for you. tweet us at new day.
post on facebook.com/newday. we are just three days away from the tratic faceoff in brooklyn. they will now have to say to each other. hillary clinton. bernie sanders sharing the debate stage for the first time in five weeks. the last time they will share it before the all important new york primary, thursday night, 9:00 eastern right here on cnn. alisyn. okay, chris. we are also getting a deeper look into the plotting that led up to the terror attacks in brussels. authorities reveal that france was the first intended target, not belgium. this after weekend raids landed six more. one claimed to be the man in the hat you have seen on the airport surveillance video. live in brussels this morning. good morning, kelly. >> good morning. this is astonishing detail that have come out since the arrests on friday.
actually brussels wasn't the inte intended target. the computer that was owned by airport suicide bomber ibrahim al bakraoui. on that computer file, two locations were named. the business district and the catholic association in paris. now, interestingly, police have had this computer for almost three weeks now. interesting that we are only learning about this change in plan since the arrest of the six suspects on friday. chief among them, the most wanted man in europe, muhammoha abri abrini. police have been searching for him. they pounced on him as he walked around in plain sight. we know that he is talk to go police. he has confessed to being the airport bomber. the question is, is he also
providing other detail, either he or the other five suspects that helped police piece together the data that now led them to believe belgium was not the intended target. it was paris. >> more developments seemingly by the day. thank you so much for that. back here at home, jury selection getting under way in the case of a georgia father accused of leaving his only child left in a car seat where the baby succumbed to the heat. he was taking his son to day care back in 2014 but a apparently drove to his office instead, leaving the little boy trapped in the car. he is being spared the death penalty. second-degree murder charged in the death of new orleans saints will smith. new orleans police say he and smith" exchanged words" after

>> we have a corrupt system, and we have to do something about it. you vote, and the vote means something. >> that was donald trump blasting on colorado delegate results. rival ted cruz picking up 34 pledge delegates despite colorado having no primary or caucus. former reagan white house political director and ben ferguson, host of the ben ferguson show who is a ted cruz
supporter. delegates were chosen and awarded in colorado is not what most americans think of when they think their vote will count. >> the answer is no. everybody that decided to run for president knew what the rules would be in every state. you play by the rules in each state. every state has the decision in a way they decide to have their election. winner take all in florida. donald trump won all of those. is it fair he got of them? the answer is no. and the only reason why you are hearing about this now is because he lost. he has been losing the last four. this is a guy who understands winning better than anybody else. now he's losing. he is a weak candidate. he's having a hard time getting to the 1,237 delegates that he needs. if you want to run for president you have to have a ground game.
and the bigger issue here is donald trump should be furious that he didn't realize when you run for president you actually have to have an organization on the ground. every state is different. welcome to the game of running for the presidency. nothing was stolen from anybody. >> jeffrey, your response? >> well, i noticed this morning that the colorado republican party chairman has had to apologize for a tweet that went out over the party that said #nevertrump. we did it. he is basically saying somebody hijacked the party. so something is obviously going on in colorado. i don't know what it is to be perfectly candid. i'm sure we will get this in detail in colorado and everywhere else. >> donald trump was on another morning show a few moments ago and he went further than he has
in the past, talking about some of those tactics on the cruz campaign. listen to this. >> now they are trying to pick off those delegates one by one. that is not the way democracy is supposed to work. they offer them trips. they offer them all sorts of things. and you're allowed to do that. you're allowed to offer trips and you can buy all these votes? what kind of a system is this? >> what about that, ben. they're offering delegates perks. >> i would love for donald trump, a guy who loves to throw out these insane claims to show proof of this. i have a hard time buying he knows what people are getting when they are delegates. he hasn't had contact with hardly any delegates. i'm not sure he knew what it was or what it did at the convention a week ago when he fired his manager in colorado when he realized we have no ground game. this is nothing but a lack of experience understanding how hard it is to be president.
his campaign has totally been what? have a big event and get out. when you have a ground game, he got beat badly in wisconsin because he took the state for granted. he also insulted the voters of colorado. the reason he got beat so badly, he didn't show up to their convention. he stood them up. he was disrespectful. >> oh, please. >> you know this, jeffrey. you have to show up. i love that you laugh at the voters. if you really want them to vote for you, you need to show up and talk to them. sit a fact that donald trump disrespected the voters in colorado and did not show up. am i wrong? >> he wasn't talking about colorado values in a negative sense, was he? >> jeffrey, before we get to that -- hold on, guys. before we get to that, i want to dig in on what paul manafort --
>> what an interesting guy he is. >> he said that cruz is engaged in gestapo tactics to get delegates. jeffrey, what does that mean? >> to be perfectly candid, i haven't talked to paul so i don't know what he is referring to. i'm sure he knows what's going on. he's getting into this in detail. he is extremely experienced in this. he did this both for president ford and president reagan. i will see if i can find out. >> jeffrey, you think now that he has paul manafort that donald trump can catch up in this chess game we now know ted cruz has been playing. >> first of all, donald trump in ahead. >> by 2 million people. >> he is also ahead in delegates at this point. so we're now moving on to new york. he's concentrating there, as he should, on his home base. so every vote counts. there's no question about that.
but he's hard at work. and he is ahead. >> okay, ben, last word. >> paul manafort is a guy brought on by donald trump's campaign. for him to say gestapo style politics. if anyone understands that, it is paul. paul has clients that he worked with in the ukraine, that the united states of america is trying to extradite. it talks about the type of person that donald trump is surrounding himself with. you have a guy being investigated by the fbi. this is a fact. he's the one that brought up gestapo. >> hold on there. last word, jeffrey. what? >> what does this have to do with getting delegates? if you want to go through the background of everybody who
works for ted cruz and every other candidate, i'm sure you're welcome to do it. the issue is getting delegates. what paul manafort does orst not do has to do with delegates. >> guys, we have on to leave it there. there will be lots of time to talk about delegates and tactics the next week. it is a very big week. beginning with a new twist, a town hall event featuring republican candidates and their families. john kasich will be joined by his wife and daughters. tuesday, donald trump and family. wednesday, texas senator ted cruz will be joined by his wife. join us at 9:00 p.m. eastern. they even have is their own music. >> i like that. >> that is great. >> we should all have our own theme music. i've been saying that for years. the terror cell behind the

it now turns out that this brussels cell was planning to attack paris again. let's bring in editor-in-chief of the ctc sentinel paul crookshank. what they did under was terrible enough. why do we believe this and where does it lead us? >> abrini has told investigators that was going to be the target. number two, they found on the computer it would appear some plans linked to paris. it has become abundantly clear that the number one target for isis is france, is paris.
>> why is that? >> that's throwing the kitchen cinque at it right now. france is playing a leading role in the fight against isis in syria and in iraq. a lot of air strikes. and there are a lot of french recruits to join isis, giving them the capability to launch attacks in france. there is real concerns that there are dozens of operatives tasked with launching attacks. >> so, why did they change their plan? >> according to what they're saying, they changed it because salah abdeslam was arrested. they felt the dragnet was coming down on them. they were in brussels. according to what they are now saying to investigators, what abrini is saying, they the celebrated and launched this attack in brussels on the fly on the airport, at the metro.
investigators are not necessarily taking the word of these suspects at their word. they are looking into what their plans could have been. they also found government buildings in belgium, photos of them, plans of them on the computer about the terror cell. >> when i was in brussels a few weeks ago reporting on the attacks there, we went to his childhood neighborhood, molenbeek. that's where others were radicalized and lived. we went to the youth center where he spent his adolescence and found his former counselor talked about what he was like as a young man. let me play this for you. >> translator: the only one that can came here and i know was the young abrini. he came here when he was around 10, 11, 12 years old. he was a calm, even incident verted childment not extroverted at all. extremely calm and reserved.
i'm actually surprised to know this boy who was calm, kind, well manner could have gotten to that point. >> introverted, calm. what makes them susceptible to this poison. >> here's the trajectory for so many young men. they get involved in petty crime, gangsterism. they commit a robbery or something like that, they go to jail. in jail they are getting radicalized by these people over there who are giving them a sense of redemption, of purpose. and of course because they were involved in gangsterism, they got a lot of skills. so isis was able to draw on the op actives who know how to operate in a criminal matter, who have the connections where they can easily buy guns. when you say the al qaeda threat, isis has been able to
recruit some people who are more effective terrorists exhibiting greater trade craft, operational security. and the worry is now we will see a string of attacks get through in europe the next few months. >> the worry for you is what is still unknown, right? and you have specifics of that some. >> well, two concerning things this morning. number one, a missing bag with potentially explosives inside it. it was last seen on cctv at maalbeek. they haven't found it yet. they did a raid on brussels. didn't find the bag. very concerned about that. and also concerned about a missing suspect.
another suspect is still unaccounted for. he might have the bag. they are concerned there may be more than a dozen suspects linked to the cells still at large. as we move forward the next couple of months, here's i think the biggest concern of officials in europe. we have one of the biggest soccer tournaments in the world about to happen in europe. europe 2016. it kicks off in exactly two months's time. remember what happened at the stadium in france. isis wants to hit it and hit it hard. >> paul, thank you for all the information as always. michaela. remembering former new orleans saints defensive end will smith. he was shot and killed in what appears to have maybe been a road rage case this weekend much he played a key role in the saints 2009 super bowl win.

fame and g.m. of saintsnolo.com. a man taken really in the prime of his life. thanks for joining us today. have you had a chance to talk to the family? have you heard any word? how are they doing? >> michaela, good morning. it's a tragedy, first and foremost. i have not talked to them since the tragic event saturday night. he was so excited. he got inducted unanimously. he was a stand out guy with the media. model teammate. he would do whatever it took to be successful. this is a real tragedy. >> so often times these guys are known for who they are on the field. but this guy, who was not a new orleans native, he made it his
home. he chose -- he and his wife and family chose to live there after his days on the field ended. he made new orleans home. >> yeah, he did. he fell in love with the community. he made his home in suburban. they were involved in the city to a large degree. that's where they were. a french quarter fest when this unspeakable tragedy occurred later in the day. he was with peter thomas as well. it's hard to comprehend where we are. it's not just new orleans. it's nationwide and beyond. it is very, very frustrating. when you see someone of this magnitude, it just puts a face to a problem that continues to exist nationwide. >> you talk about this guy. oftentimes people are all reeling to make sense when there is no sense to a man being gunned down like this. he started his own nonprofit.
where there is a will there is a way working with at-risk youth. >> right. that pretty much defines who he was. often times when you are dealing with athletes, and i have done so for many years in a media capacity in covering sports, you're dealing with guys that often covet attention. they seek it. they want it. this is a guy that was anything like but that. he did not want it. he did not covet it. when you went to him he was unbelievably genuine. you could accept everything as gospel. he was great with the fans as well. making appearance at the saints hall of fame museum and beyond. people just gravitated to him. he couldn't have been more gracious with them. >> you get the real privilege of making that call when they are elected into the hall of fame. tell me about that phone conversation. >> you get so many different reactions. that's one of the best descriptions of my job running
the saints hall of fame, is to call people on an annual basis and to see and hear their reaction. will is known as a pretty low key guy. he had a pause when i told him. and he just stumbled through his comments. and he said this is fantastic. i can't tell you how much i appreciate this. and you could tell how genuine his reaction was. some guys cry. some guys laugh. some guys have other reactions. but this was typical of will. he hesitated before he responded. when he did he maintained his low key voice but let you know just how excited he was. and i know he was in subsequent conversations. >> so it will indeed proceed. it happened once before to be inducted posthumously. it will be a moving tribute to this young man who did terrific
work on and off the field. >> very much so. again, we have to remember, this was a 34-year-old young man with three young children and a loving wife. that's a tragedy. he is a football player, so it gets an enormous amount of attention. but you are talking about a father, a husband, a guy people respected and liked. of course the fans love him because he is part of their most beloved time in the history of the franchise. they won a super bowl with will smith. he was a prominent reason they won that super bowl. it is very, very sad he won't be around. michaela, defections from the afghan army giving the taliban the upper hand in afghanistan. in a cnn excuse issive, you will hear from the fighters who have switched sides in what is being called the endless war 37
and allies invested tremendous amounts of blood and money. why is the afghan army losing strength again? nick paton walsh live with this cnn exclusive. >> reporter: remarkable after all assurances gave would be able to hold taliban back so much territory changing hands. some cases defection to the taliban among afghan soldiers where that challenge is greatest. you know a war is going badly when your enemy is right in front of you. this white flag is the talibans. they are that close to these afghans defending one of the last held. it used to be nato that shot
from these positions near the vulnerable city. hundreds of americans and britains died many in the town where the pictures show the afghan army recently in heavy clashes. now afghanistan is quite quickly watching. the taliban are winning partly because of men like these. soldiers from the afghan army who america spent billions training who say they have defected and joined the taliban. >> translator: i did 18 months army training and took an oath to serve this country but the situation changed. the army let us down so we had to come to the taliban. >> reporter: they carried uniforms, i.d.s and bank cards used to get old army wages.
these pictures were more recently filmed and both use training and experience to train the taliban. >> translator: i decided to leave the army when my dead and injured conrads lay in our base but nobody took them to the hospital. my army training is useful now as i'm training taliban fighters with the same knowledge. >> reporter: men who have seen the tide turn and voted with their feet. this is the center of the town of the taliban site. some visit briefly from areas the taliban now control. it's a bit too soon to say whether people are happy with the taliban. it is full of people while it used to be empty because security was bad and some people avoided the government's forces. others fled to the outskirts.
>> translator: my worst memory is how a wedding party was hit by a mortar killing a large number of women and children. >> translator: the police left and told me to move to a vacant corner of the village but rockets followed killing ten people. >> reporter: just over a year since nato stopped fighting and the taliban's white flags are closer than ever. >> what do you see in the pace of decline there? >> reporter: it's deeply troubling. we are seeing falling in ways where nato officials would have laughed if you suggested was viable. u.s. officials are very key. so much is in taliban control.
if they get it they control poppies, opium, a lot of cash there. the u.s. embassy just sent out release warning american citizens to stay away from a particular hotel here after secretary kerry's visit was punctuated at the end. the capital is pretty dangerous and the rest of the country increasingly in peril. >> we are coming into the poppy growing season which means more money available, more violence. how much concern is there for what this change in the state of play is going to mean for the ordinary afghans? >> well, of course, taliban have caused people to take one side during the last decade or so and many may have chosen the wrong one. the government is concerned the perception is they are losing. they insist that the security
forces afghanistan lost just last year alone doing their best to recover from the absence of nato troops here. they say they will do better but looking at what is happening it is slipping so much faster than anybody thought. that nato officials assured. it looks bleak. >> nick paton walsh, the country has a habit of going the wrong way faster than expected. thank you for the reporting. stay safe my friend. there is a lot of news including donald trump slamming ted cruz's victory in colorado. why? let's get to it. >> i say this too rnc. you will have a big problem. >> they are not held to standard of reality. >> it is an alternative universe. >> we have a corrupt system. this race has gotten ugly and
personal. >> shot and killed former new orleans saints football star. >> we will prosecute. >> a family is devastated and shocked. >> major developments here in belgium. >> terrorist behind the deadly plot planned more attacks in france. >> a couple of dozen or more people still out there. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo. good morning. welcome to "new day." it is monday, april 11. up first, donald trump is refocussed. the republican front runner is back on the trail after four days of near silence and he and his aides say they retooled the campaign. it seems to be started with a wave of fury over ted cruz's sweep of colorado. he is blasting the delegate
selection process as totally unfair. the convention manager is accusing cruz of gestapo tactics. >> as bernie sanders steps up attacks on hillary clinton saying something is lacking in her judgment. he claims she is condescending to young voters. the democratic rivals said to face off on thursday. can sanders pull off a win here in new york next week? let's begin our coverage. >> they are complicated, different in every state and being dominated by ted cruz's campaign. they are the republican delegate rules and have donald trump and his top advisers crying foul. >> we've got a corrupt system. it's not right. we are supposed to be a democracy. >> reporter: donald trump back on the campaign trail in new york after spending four days
laying low. >> we have to have a system where voting means something. >> reporter: criticizing the delegate system after a string of losses dominated by ted cruz's campaign organization and issuing a warning. >> you will have a big problem because people don't like what is going on. >> reporter: trump's top adviser echoing his boss's concerns alleging that the cruz campaign is threatening trump's delegates. >> you go to these conventions and see these tactics and we are filing several protests. reality is they are not playing by the rules. >> reporter: the cruz campaign calls it sour grapes writing it is no surprise the team will lash out when facing a loss to distract from failure. trump taking to social media. tweeting biggest story in
politics. this back and forth a day after trump -- >> if donald is the nominee poll after poll shows him losing by double digits. we are looking at a blood bath of walter mondale proportions. >> reporter: as trump tries out a new strategy, playing it safe. republican front runner was absent from the sunday talk shows yesterday for the first time in four months. >> i spoke to one top trump adviser who acknowledged that despite public protests they have been outorganized, outplayed and outmaneuvered. they are going to need a couple weeks more to try to catch up to them. that said in that race to the magic 1,237 number trump's campaign says if we win primaries and caucuses we don't have to worry about that stuff. >> thanks so much. for that joining us now is
former new hampshire senator bob smith. good morning, senator. >> good morning. thanks for having me on. >> when paul manafort says this what is your response? >> it's nonsense. every time senator cruz gets a victory somewhere, wins a delegate somewhere we have to hear name calling and coming up with this kind of stuff. the truth is that senator cruz has a grass roots organization which he has put together and worked personally, talking to delegates in north dakota, utah, out in wisconsin, of course, in the primary and here in colorado. it's the process and senator cruz has put this team together. if donald trump spent time doing that and stopped name calling
maybe he would be in better shape. >> donald trump says not that ted cruz is winning delegates but they are engaged in under handed tactics. >> now they are trying to pick off delegates one by one. that is not the way democracy is supposed to work. they offer them trips. what kind of a system is this? >> is the cruz campaign offering delegates trips and other things for their votes? >> of course not. this is nonsense. it is senator cruz taking the time to meet personally with delegates as the process provides for and as grass roots organization which we have spent a tremendous amount of effort and resources on over the past
several months. this is the way it is. some delegates are elected and are not specifically for any candidate. it's up to the candidates to go and talk to the delegates. that's the way the process is. it's what you have to do. i can understand why trump is angry. he lost 12 elections in the last few weeks to senator cruz. he lost the last four with colorado now. instead of being out there and calling names and using all falsehoods he ought to be concentrating ongoing after delegates to win the nomination. >> just in the past two days the trump campaign has accused the cruz campaign of basically buying votes. they have accused the cruz campaign of intimidating delegates. is ted cruz going to respond to this and shut down some of these accusations? >> that's up to senator cruz to
respond. i certainly know it is not true. gestapo tactics is a pretty strong word. what are the tactics? talking to delegates and trying to get them to asking them if they will support senator cruz? that's the process. that is what you have to do to take 1,237 delegates to win. that is what senator cruz is doing. absolutely nothing wrong with it. sour grapes is what it is. >> does donald trump have a point? in most americans minds the way the primary process is supposed to work is that regular americans go to the polls and vote for the candidate of their choice. if you just look at it that way and look at the map donald trump should be winning. he is winning in the delegates and the popular vote. he has 2 million more votes than
ted cruz. does he have a point that the convoluted process that we have seen in colorado is not what most americans think of as democracy. >> this is just donald trump doing what he does best which is to make noise and to kind of make it look like we're doing something wrong. the truth is it's the united states of america, state by state from new hampshire to california over a period of months we elect our president. we do it by having elections and caucuses in state after state. depending on the state they have different methods of electing these delegates. sometimes by the popular vote, sometimes by caucus, sometimes elected as noncommitted and then candidates have to talk to them. these are the rules. there is nothing wrong with it. it is still a democratic process and the way the process works. the united states of america,
how many you have you can win more popular vote in the general election and still not win the presidency because the electoral college provides for a process where you win state by state. senator cruz is doing everything above board, talking to delegates as you are supposed to do and all donald trump does is call names and scream and yell. it's now catching up with him finally. >> former new hampshire senator, thanks so much for being on "new day." it's a big week of politics beginning with a new twist. a three night cnn town hall event featuring republican candidates and families. tonight at 9:00 p.m. eastern ohio governor john kasich will be joined by his wife and daughters. tuesday it is donald trump and family. on wednesday ted cruz will be joined by his wife.
anderson cooper will moderate town hall so join us. big week on cnn. bernie sanders laying the groundwork for what promises to be a fiery democratic bait thursday night in brooklyn. he released a new ad trying to prove who is the real new yorker. let's get the latest from joe johns. >> good morning. the latest this morning in the home state battle between the democrats. hillary clinton is seen as having the edge in the polls as former u.s. senator from new york bernie sanders is seeking to bolster his own street cred with a new television ad that plays on the fact
that he grew up there. >> new york, what makes a thing bigger, go bolder, push for a living wage that is higher? for tuition free public college? for a middle class that must be
saved. you do. values in new york. he knows what we know, we are all in this together. >> not to be outdone front runner hillary clinton appearing at the greater allen ame church emphasizing
her years representing the state on capitol hill speaking about how much she loved being a senator from new york and telling the co congregation and voters she wants to serve them again. >> when is the last time you talked about new york this way in a presidential race? who would have guessed it would become such a flash point? president obama doesn't talk a lot about the campaign let alone the scandals dogging hillary clinton but he did just that. the president says his administration is playing no role whatsoever in the justice department investigation into her e-mails. then the president went further.
athena jones live with more. what did the president say about what he thinks of the scandal? >> reporter: the president defended hillary clinton on this e-mail issue and seemed to down play the issue. he said even though she may have been careless he doesn't believe she put national security at risk when it comes to management of the e-mails. take a listen. >> i continue to believe that she has not jeopardized america's national security. what i have also said and she has acknowledged that there is a carelessness in terms of managing e-mails that she has owned and she recognizes. but i also think it is important to keep this in perspective. this is somebody who served her country for four years as secretary of state and did an
outstanding job. >> so the president saying she did an outstanding job. the other thing that is interesting is that he talked about the classification system echoing the words from the clinton team who argued this is a case of classification run amuck. other times not so much. we also heard from the president talking about hopes for the judge he picked to fill justice scalia's seat. it doesn't look like a vote is happening right now. there is a wall of republican opposition. the president said some republicans said they wouldn't sit down and meet with judge garland. we are seeing republicans meet including a breakfast meeting tomorrow with senator grassley. he is hoping there will be movement on that. the president was asked what is his biggest mistake as president. take a listen to what he had to
say. >> probably failing to plan for the day after what i think was the right thing to do in intervening in libya. >> naming libya as his biggest mistake, an area where the white house has come under a lot of criticism. the president has called libya a mess and used harsher firms because it has become a haven for isis. >> thank you so much for all of that. second degree murder charges filed against the suspect who allegedly shot and killed saints star will smith. cardell hayes being held. >> one of will smith's former teammates told me will was getting excited about his life
after football. he was completing an executive mba degree and scheduled to walk in his graduation. another told me as big of a difference maker he was on the field he had an even greater impact in the new orleans community. >> one life is over and another life is ruined. >> reporter: new details emerging over apparent road rage killing of beloved new orleans saints defensive end will smith. police say this man exchanged words with smith after rear ending his car. soon after hayes now charged with second degree murder pulled out a hand gun, gunning down the 2010 super bowl champion and shooting his wife in the leg. hours earlier the couple posting this selfie together. smith writing having a blast.
>> rocquel is at the hospital recovering. >> reporter: police are investigating whether the relationship between smith and a former police officer who posted this photo on facebook dining with smith an hour before his murder had anything to do with the shooting. the reason, the former officer was involved in the 2005 killing of the gunman's father. hayes claims he and five other officers used excessive force when they shot and killed his father after he allegedly lunged at him. >> we do not have information to suggest that they knew anything or that this was anything other than an accident that turned into a dispute. >> reporter: an outpouring of grief over the loss flooded social media. reggie bush writing you were a great man and did so much good for so many people in new orleans. you will be greatly missed.
>> as a former player i remember getting emotional just when a teammate was cut. it is unfathomable what the teammates are going through with will smith. i asked curtis loften if he had gotten emotional yet. he said not yet. it is still surreal. i have a knot in my stomach because that could have been me with him. i can't imagine how his wife and three children are feeling. >> to think these things happen in a flash and then lives are ruined and changed forever. it is so tragic. thank you for all of that. a controversial prison release in california, the son of a former state house speaker now out on parole. he went to prison in 2010 for stabbing death of a college student. on his last day of office then governor arnold schwarzenegger reduced the sentence. an appeals court said back room

senator bernie sanders intensifying his attacks on hillary clinton questioning her judgment this after clenching his eighth victory in the last nine contests over hillary clinton this weekend in wyoming. will this war of words get uglier before thursday night's cnn debate? who better to discuss this with than team sanders coach. so one specific issue for the state of play.
in defense of hillary clinton's use of the word of predator or super predator in the context of the crime bill. >> i don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out on the street to murder other african-american children. maybe you thought they were good citizens. she didn't. she didn't. you are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. tell the truth. >> is former president clinton wrong? >> he is absolutely wrong. that term superpredator is racially coded term that was being used by conservative and right wing social scientists to describe a whole generation of young minority kids who were supposedly unsavable, just criminals. this was not a term used in
isolation. this was being used by the right wing and conservatives to slur a whole generation of african-americans. >> you are saying the president is changing the context and definition of what hillary clinton was referring to back then? >> i'm saying it was used in 1996 there was a social context. for him to defend it now as bernie sanders said is unacceptable. >> but where does bernie sanders want to take this? it goes down the road of bernie sanders saying that hillary clinton/bill clinton are bigots. is that where he wants to go? >> i will say that there is a history of what used to be triangulation on the part of the clintons whether the crime bill or welfare reform bill in 1996 which has increased the number of kids living in desperate poverty, voting for doma in the
same time period and running ads on christian radio, touting the fact that they supported doma or 2008 when they contacted elliot spitzer to try to got give undocumented drivers licenses. it is a history of triangulation and it is a troubling history and needs to be talked about. >> the senator voted for the same crime bill that the senator did. what is the ultimate point of this? they are in the same place on the same bill that the african-american community hate and think was directed to hurt them. why isn't the senator able to be painted with the same stink in. >> they weren't in the same place. when bernie sanders voted for the bill he went to the floor of the house and said this bill has a lot of terrible death
penalty -- we would be having a conversation. bernie sanders didn't go around talking about people being super predators to justify voting for that. voted for it for -- >> you can make that same defense for clinton. >> i don't think that is true. >> i don't think there is anything good in doma. this crime bill they supported this crime bill lock stock and barrel at the time. >> is it a fair comparison to say where secretary clinton was on doma. she feels differently about gay marriage. is that the functional equivalent of where sanders is now with gun manufacturers they he voted for a bill to give
protection that no other manufacturer of anything gets in this country. >> six that were put in the bill were almost impossible to pigeon hole. you see that resulting efforts to go after them. you basically can't go after gun manufacturers. now senator sanders says i have to know more about the situation. he will be hand cuffed by his own law. is that a functional equivalent? he evolved on the issue and now wants to look at gun manufacturers most. is that convenient? >> there is a difference between having a position and then getting new information to change. secretary and president clinton on doma did it for the purpose of winning an election to triangulate against the gay community. they ran ads in southern christian radio in the '90s. today they say they voted for it
because it was defensive measure for something else. people are saying that is not the case. in 2008 trying to make sure undocumented workers didn't get driver's licenses. it is a history of convenient triangulation against vulnerable people throughout her career. >> what is victory for the sanders campaign in new york state? what will you consider a victory short of victory? >> i think we have to do well here. i think the senator has to do well here. i don't think he has to win here. we have to win most states in the calendar coming up. we don't have to win every single one. the secretary represented new york twice in the u.s. senate and has a strong base here. there is no independence voting so it is less favorable terrain. i think senator sanders may do well here. we don't need to win to win. >> thank you very much. appreciate you being on "new

donald trump making a bold claim this morning accusing his rival ted cruz of buying delegates after the texas senator's weekend sweep in colorado. >> now they are trying to pick off those delegates one by one. they offer them trips and all sorts of things. and you are allowed to do that. you are allowed to offer trips and you can buy these votes. what kind of a system is this? >> here to discuss is trump's honorary campaign co-chair and former candidate for new york governor. thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> is donald trump right? is ted cruz buying delegates? >> well, i guess donald and ted
have a little bit of disagreement over the moral and ethical rules of this campaign. >> is he doing something that is not allowed? if he is paying for trips which is what donald trump has claimed this morning, is that allowed or not allowed? >> it shouldn't be allowed. the american people expected that they will be conducting themselves in a legal, moral and ethical sense. i don't see why we would accept as a country the fact that somebody can go buy off delegates. that's just not expected, certainly not expected. and i think it flies in the face of the truth that they want to present to the public. >> and do you think there is evidence that ted cruz is somehow paying for perks?
>> i don't know that. i'm not aware of it. >> when paul manafort tasked with getting delegates on the ground, when he said this weekend that ted cruz is not playing by the rules and that he has engaged in gestapo tactics what do you think he means by that? >> i think the press gets excited over the use of the term gestapo. it is descriptive that we are upset about it. i think you want to point it out to the public and use adjectives such as gestapo to illustrate that something in the minds of people it's wrong. i don't see why that is such a big deal. >> it is hard to think of a more
incendiary term than gestapo tactics. what does it mean? what is the cruz campaign doing wrong? >> that is the press focussing on a word rather than the major issues here. do we have competency in the candidates? who is most competent to be president of the united states? the language is nonsense. >> cruz's supporters say that all of this talk is just sour grapes and that donald trump is being outmaneuvered by ted cruz in this chess game that cruz has been playing for months and donald trump is playing catch up. >> we have watched cruz time in again go out over the edge and play games. that's been pointed out. i think donald trump has every right to bring it up and
illustrate that cruz is not playing by the rules of the game. >> what are the rules that cruz is breaking? >> i think the basic rules of engagement in any support people expect you to play by the rules known to the public if you are going and paying off people you are buying airplane tickets to cleveland or whatever you are doing that is not fair. >> trump supporter, thanks so much for being on "new day" this morning. let's get to michaela. >> a former nfl star gunned down

we want tolook at that as well as the legacy of this man. cnn sports analyst christine brennan to talk about this. before we talk about how his life ended it is certainly more important to tell people and introduce people to who this man was on and off the field and why his life mattered. give us a beat on how he was on the field, what made him someone worthy of induction into the saints hall of fame. >> having to play new orleans saints twice a year when i was with atlanta falcons i know he was a dominance on the field. a first round draft pick to the saints spent all nine seasons in the nfl with that organization where he became a super bowl champion, pro bowler, fourth on the all time sacks list for new orleans saints. i spoke with one of his fellow
team captains yesterday and he said it is unimaginable what happened to will smith. he was on his way back from a wedding. he said that could have been me in that vehicle with will smith. he is going to be sorely missed by the new orleans community. >> i'm trying to get christine brennan's shot back. let me stay with you until i do. this is a guy who is a rare commodity. christine, let me come to you with this. the idea that he was as much to the team and the community off the field as he was on it. true? >> absolutely. when you think of what we have talked about over the last couple of years, ray rice, that mons administ bad things in the nfl, the fact that most people never heard of him unless you are a big football fan or in new orleans. this man, the way he and his life were living their life
wrrks there is a will, there is a way, charity that helped at risk kids and families, christmas time, dozens of families he would host christmas dinner and take them to the saints practice facility. he was involved in almost all teammates charities. this was an exemplary human being. when we talk about the bad things in the nfl, will smith was one of the great things about the nfl. >> these pictures we are showing right now really make people remember what was lost here. forget about his stats. look at that wife and her love. look at those kids left without a father. christine, what do you make of this intrigue surrounding what kind of relationship may or may not have been present with the man who took his life? >> you know what, chris? it doesn't take away the facts that he is gone and that he was gunned down whether road rage or some premeditation. i think this is something we
will find out. but he is still gone and a community grieves. it is incredibly intriguing. even more sad if there was some reason for this. if this whole issue with the alleged killer and his connection to someone who will smith had been spending time with that night, that just makes it more awful. this will come out. right now we don't know a lot about it. but the story, the intrigue will continue. the tragedy remains and will never change. >> will smith is one of those guys who most people won't know. saints fans obviously know him very well and everything about him. defensive ends sometimes get a lot of attention, most often they don't. that is what makes the wide ranging reaction of saints and nonsaints people in the nfl and the extended family coming out
