3:00 am
appeared donald trump has been struggling with who exactly he wants to be on the campaign trail. the boisterous showman who's electrified thousands at his rallies or a deal maker who behind the scenes is a respected statesman. it became very clear yesterday. he has not made up his mind yet. a tail of two donald trumps. a five-state victory. >> now we're down to two stragglers, let's be nice. >> reporter: mocking ted cruz announcing his running mate. and ridiculing his alliance with republican rival john kasich. >> this little marriage of the two of them, boy did that backfire. i call them the colluders. right? the colluders. i love talking about it because what stupid decisions. >> reporter: a far cry from the
3:01 am
serious scripted gop front runner on display on foreign policy speech just a few hours earlier. >> america first will be the major and overriding theme of my administration. >> reporter: trump offered few specifics, insped, repeating campaign pledges on isis and nato. >> the u.s. must be prepared to let these countries defend themselves. >> reporter: and forged new ones with countries traditionally seen as threats. >> some say the russians won't be reasonable. i intend to find out. >> reporter: the speech prompting formal rival lindsay graham to declare ronald reagan must be rolling over in his grave. could cruz's gamble with fiorina deliver a win in indiana? many political insiders say it's do or die for him. >> some might ask why now? it is unusual to make the announcement as early as we're
3:02 am
doing so now. i think all would acknowledge this race, if anything, it is unusual. >> now, guys, there are 57 delegates at stake in indiana and there is no question about it. if donald trump has a sweeping win in the state his path to the nomination becomes very clear. so it's a crucial moment for ted cruz, one he's trying to take advantage of with this vice presidential pick, not just because of the math though, guys, when you talk to cruz advisors they're acknowledging they are pushing back against a hardening narrative. >> the old narrative is hardening. never good for heart health or political health. let's discuss with the executive editor. cnn politics editor and the washington bureau chief of the daily beast. so nobody was expecting an exegesis on foreign policy on
3:03 am
donald trump. now, you will have newt gingrich who said no, no, no, they all have it wrong. he put out a tweet saying the only word that mattered yesterday was america. he gets it. >> and he did a good job of doing that. he was panned for lack of details in that speech, but he was going to be embraced throughout the day and will continue to be embraced for what he said. he wasn't speaking to you and you and me. he was speaking to middle america, and what he said yesterday was our allies need to -- need to come in and they need to start paying their own way and he also said, make america great many times and that plays very well and has played vel for him this campaign. >> he wasn't only panned for lack of specifics. he was panned for mixed messages. is it'slationism? are we supposed to stay home? are we supposed to dintervene when christians are persecuted
3:04 am
or what? >> the answer to your question when you look at that speech is yes. it was all over the map. i think you saw some snarky tweets. >> let me just read it. no fan of donald trump says not sure who's advising trump on foreign policy but i can understand why he's not reve revealing their names. >> and you also got the sense if anyone had the chance to ask any questions, he wouldn't be able to answer them. it was a teleprompter type of speech and showed a lack of knowledge in an area that's a chief test. >> yesterday trump said something that i thought would be a tale of what was coming in the speech. he said i like the move, i don't like that he's telling everybody. that's a very common tactic. why is it employ this idea that
3:05 am
telling people is what the risk is, that keeping it quiet, the strategy, that was one of his main points about how to change the military strategy in the speech. >> it was. and one of the more interesting things, you hear this whenever donald trump talks about foreign policy. donald trump stepped away from the republican party orthodoxy. he said a couple of things that were almost praising some moves by the obama administration. this is not the speech you would hear from a typical foreign policy defense analyst in washington, d.c., this could be a speech that plays really well for him in middle america. one other thing that i wanted to note, the most insend yar things, he wants to build that beautiful wall between united states the mexico, those kinds of things, not in that speech. i thought that was a fascinating thing of how far he's come in foreign policy and how he has a more somber approach as he heads
3:06 am
to clinch that nomination. >> those things are notable and what she was saying, some of the things that he was talking about yesterday could have been plucked from the obama doctrine of foreign policy in terms of we'll never be involved in wars and what obama said is a candidate. never been involved in some unnecessary wars. he was echoing some of that so it's interesting that it plays so well with his base. >> and what else was interesting is that he was critical of george w. bush and how we got into iraq, but as much as he was criticized he was also praised by senator bob corker from tennessee. why that's important is that corker is what you see is somebody considered to be an establishment insider and at a time when it looks like trump is going to become the nominee i think you'll see more establishment types get behind his candidacy. >> the problem with trump going into this, the same problem for all of these guys, no matter who you are, foreign policy is
3:07 am
complex and it doesn't yield a lot of progress in this day and age so it's hard to go out here and say here's what i was going to do. that's why he's getting hit with this stick that america first? that sounds like the 1930s. we know what that helped lead to. is there anywhere he could have gone in this speech where it would have been universally accepted? >> no, and you're right. foreign policy is something that also has a million different opinions. now unlike other candidates hillary clinton does have a little bit more experience as the former secretary of state in this department so her republican challenger will have to know more. >> the plus/minus is she doesn't have a little more experience she has infinitely more experience. she traveled more than any other secretary of state in the modern age, but that comes with the record where you look around the world and it's not the happiest place. she'll have to own that as well. >> but there has to be some more
3:08 am
of a base knowledge. there's a lot to criticize in hillary clinton's record on that but the bar is a little bit higher for these republican candidates. and ted cruz is a senator. carly fiorina does have some background in foreign policy so the playing field is a little bit different for donald trump than it had been for other nominees in the past. >> let's talk about carly fiorina. the other big news is that ted cruz tapped her to be his vice presidential pick. why of all choices carly fiorina? >> the cruz campaign, first of all, the move itself to name a vice presidential nominee now, ted cruz is trying to deprive donald trump of some of the oxygen. everyone is talking about how close he is coming to clinch the nomination. ted cruz is looking to be part of the conversation. he is making a forceful counter to the clinton campaign by naming a woman. he is looking ahead to the large stock of delegates that are at store in california's primary in early june. carly fiorina ran for senate
3:09 am
there in the primary but has a record there as well. he's looking for somebody who can energize the base and fire them up, suck some votes away from donald trump and perhaps the rnc pick up a win. whether that will work, this is a really big gamble. he's running the risk of looking brilliant or having a big failure if it does not go his way. >> i don't know that fiorina checks any of those boxes. just the california box, she ran there, she got pummelled and she hasn't been so nice about ted cruz in an environment where nobody's being that nice. here's what fiorina had to say about the senator during the race. >> ted cruz is just like any other politician. he says one thing in manhattan, he says another thing in iowa. he says whatever he needs to say to get elected and then he's going to do what he pleases. >> i find it odd that senator cruz did not renounce his dual
3:10 am
canadian citizenship until 2015 until it became clear he was running for president. >> if i'm donald trump i'm putting this out in an ad and running it on a loop or maybe i'm not at all. right now all we should be talking about for the next three hours is the fact that carly fiorina is ted cruz's vice presidential pick. but he's having to share the stage with donald trump. these speeches happen all the time. so ted cruz mathematically eliminated from getting the nomination. >> so why would we discuss it at all? normally if you have no shot at beating me and you say this is who i'm going to run with, usually you get more laughed at than lauded for the move. >> because you have one shot and that is to take it to cleveland and you try to win on the floor hoping that carly fiorina can shore up any support that you can get at this point to stop donald trump from getting to 1237 delegates. >> there have been a lot of moments in this campaign that
3:11 am
are unusual and yesterday was no exception. let's play a moment of carly fiorina when she was accepting the vp nomination. watch this. >> i know two girls that i just adore. i'm so happy i can see them more. because we travel on the bus all day, we get to play, we get to play. >> poetic? >> it was unusual. i don't know. that didn't bother me as much as i think -- >> i thought she held the note well. >> i will never criticize anyone singing as you guys know. >> i'm telling you what, i'm unvowed. >> it comes down to indiana and carly's song helps her there, great. if ted cruz can't win indiana or do very well it doesn't matter about who his running mate is because it's going to be impossible for him to block
3:12 am
donald trump. but that's the thing about hail mary's. if they're caught in the endzone, you're brilliant, if they're dropped you shouldn't have done a hail mary. >> he should have come out with the full of grace part. this is a true prayer. coming up in our next hour, carly fiorina joins us live right here on "new day." >> we sing on ted and you give us the stink eye. reality appears to be setting in for bernie sanders. his campaign begins laying off hundreds of staffers. he vows to continue his fight all the way to the convention though. we're live in washington with more of what's going on inside his campaign. >> reporter: good morning. big changes are coming to the sanders' team. they're laying off more than 200 staffers. this is after he lost four out of the five states that voted on tuesday night, which of course
3:13 am
brings his rival hillary clinton closer to securing the nomination. sanders' team says this is the natural progression of every campaign. so the workers that will be affected are the workers in states that just voted but so will some workers in other states and so will some members of the national staff. while the sanders' team is saying this is not a big deal, these are not generally the moves you make when you think you're going to be the nominee and have to mount a national 50-state campaign in just a matter of weeks. but as you mentioned sanders is still vowing to stay in the race until the convention. take a listen to what he had to say yesterday. >> i am very good in arithmetic and i can count delegates and we are behind today. if we do not win, we intend to win every delegate that we can so that when we go to philadelphia in july we're going to have the votes to put
3:14 am
together the strongest progressive agenda that any political party has ever seen. >> so sanders has his eye on the convention. meanwhile clinton has his eyes squarely on presumptive gop nominee donald trump. >> thank you very much for that. we do have breaking news to tell you about. in the investigation of prince's death a law enforcement official telling cnn the singer had prescription painkillers on him and in his home when he died. we're live outside of paisley park estate with the details. what have you learned? >> reporter: good morning, allison. at this point we understand that local authorities have looped in the dea to get their help with this investigation. what they want to know is who is prescribing these drugs to him and whether or not they were being overprescribed to the iconic artist, also learning here that the time that the plane landed in illinois
3:15 am
carrying prince about a week before he died coming back from his concerts in atlanta, they believe then that he was treated for a prescription pain medication reaction of some sort and that he continued on with that flight, and was possibly given some sort of treatment for this reaction. they do believe it was probably because of these opioids. however, we know that the autopsy has been done. we won't know for a few more weeks, they're saying, exactly what was in that toxicology. back to you, chris. >> thank you very much for the report and we will stay on that story, of course. other news this morning former house speaker dennis hastert admitting he sexually abused several teenage boys when he was a high school wrestling coach. two alleged victims testified at his sentencing hearing yesterday where he apologized for quote, mistreating them. the judge branding the 74-year-old former speaker of the house as a quote, serial child molester. hastert was sentenced to 15
3:16 am
months in prison for bank fraud linked to the sexual abuse and must register has a sex offender. >> quite a close call at the atlanta international airport. a delta plane cleared for takeoff wednesday just as another delta flight crossed the runway as it taxied after landing. an air traffic controller realized the error and immediately told the flight to abort takeoff. the pilot was forced to slam on those brakes. thankfully no one was injured. >> i don't like that. >> they were a mile apart. not at those speeds it isn't. bernie sanders is laying off hundreds of campaign staffers. is political reality setting in for the vermont senator? our panel will tackle that, next. you don't let anything keep you sidelined.

3:20 am
hundreds of bernie sanders' campaign staffers will soon be out of a job. the campaign is downsizing. even if the candidate vows to keep up the fight in the democratic race. let's talk about this with our panel. great to have you all back. so mark, bernie is not saying
3:21 am
that he's laying off some of his campaign staffers because there's no path to the nomination. he has a different explanation for it. let me read that to you he says here it will be hundreds of staff members. we have had a very large staff designed to deal with 50 states in this country. 40 of the states are now behind us so we have had a great staff, great people. so now we don't need them anymore. >> right. so if he was going to be in a position right now to win the democratic nomination, you wouldn't be cutting staff, you'd be reallocating the staff into a general election mode so clearly we're at a point in the campaign where it is winding down, but it's not ending and he's been very, very vocal about that. >> but i thought he had so much money. did he burn through it or is this about something else sf. >> no, we heard that earlier. there's a reality that he's very good at arithmetic which makes me feel good because he's a u.s. senator. he knows how to do math and he realizes his position is not to
3:22 am
be the democratic nominee but to become the voice for the liberal wing of the democratic party. something that howard dean tried to do in his 2004 run and was unsuccessful. >> what's the successful end game for bernie sanders? >> well, he hinted there that he's still going to the convention but i think uncreasingly it's going to be about the democratic platform and making sure that the issues he's brought into this campaign and has hammered this entire time gets inserted in this platform that will be crafted before the democratic convention. so those issues stay alive and keep him alive in a sense, you know, as they go into the general election campaign. >> we were just hearing mark preston say howard dean in 2004. i guess that's the best analog, but can you remember anybody going into the convention as a number two with as much strength as bernie sanders will have and what do you think that strength could mean at the convention? >> absolutely. i think that what that strength will mean at the convention is that the clinton campaign is
3:23 am
going to be looking at how can they make sure this is locked up ahead of the convention. bernie sanders responding last week to the fact that he might not be the nominee, made a road map for how clinton could win over his supporters. the responsibility will be on her. that she'll need to bring these issues that jackie talked about like wall street, like the corrupt banks that bernie sanders talks about all the time, the progressive platform that he's run on, she needs to be talking about those issues to win over his supporters for the general election and make sure she can sew this thing up over whoever the republican nominee is. i'm a clinton campaign right now that's the play book i'm looking at. making sure those people show up and vote for me in the election. she put out a fund raising e-mail yesterday using language that we hadn't really heard before in her fund raising appeals. trump's unpredictable often dangerous rhetoric has created a
3:24 am
volatile atmosphere in this race that requires us to be even more prepared than before. this campaign is going to need deep resources for the wild ride that awaits us. >> donald trump has billions of dollars and if he wants to use his money to try to defeat hillary clinton she's going to need every nickel, every dime she can get to do it, but that message, not only directed at democrats to donate to her, really directed at republicans who are scared that donald trump is going to become their nominee because he is unpredictable not only politically but on the world stage as well. you know, do you want to give him the nuclear codes. do you want his finger on the button and that's what we see there. >> a lot of people were questioning why he chose foreign policy to make this statement, not only is he playing into hillary clinton's strength, but he is playing into this perception that preston was just articulating that there are a lot of people who may not like
3:25 am
hillary clinton to the center and to the right out there in the electorate but when it comes to foreign policy they may just be too afraid of what would happen under a trump presidency. you think there's anything to that? >> i mean, donald trump likes to project strength and that's what this speech yesterday was about. i think one of the more interesting fund raising appeals and one you'll see more in the coming days is the women card that donald trump mentioned yesterday. it struck me, i only got one or two fund raising appeals off of that yesterday from various democratic organizations. that's going tbe a windfall in addition to what you're talking about with foreign policy. >> but i don't know that that breaks new ground for hillary necessarily. >> that's true. >> his numbers with women are what they are. hers are what they are. but on foreign policy, do you think that -- i'll ask it to you, do you think this could be a dividing line where even people who don't like hillary clinton say you know, there's too much at stake, strength is
3:26 am
one thing when you're talking about a wall and all that other stuff, but when you're talking it to other countries who have nuclear capabilities and we need, it's too dangerous? >> i think we'll fast forward to a general election. if donald trump and hillary clinton are the nominees and put them on a debate stage you're going to see a very big contrast for two different foreign policy visions of the world and that is going to demand that donald trump respond in more specificity than we saw during the speech yesterday. he did paint a vision that as mark said will work for those outside of washington. it is not full of specifics, not full of details. he talked about strength. he slammed president obama's policies as reckless and rudderless, but you put those two on the stage and there will be a stark contrast. donald trump is going to be looking at changing his tone a little bit when it comes to foreign policy. i'm not sure how effective it

all part of this storm system that's punching the midwest. omaha, nebraska, the latest area to see a tornado touchdown. no major damage reported. but more than a dozen twistered reported this week and more severe weather could bring flooding to texas and oklahoma. we're looking ahead about what we can expect going into the weekend. how is it looking? >> another round of storms on saturday. this is what we expect in spring, i get it, but on tuesday, we had more than 200 reports of hail and wind damage and about a half a dozen tornados. yesterday, 17 tornados on the ground and i think we get a lull today, but the storms are back on saturday. especially oklahoma and texas, that's where i'm really
3:32 am
concerned about. large hail and the potential for tornados on the ground. i know it's a more widely scattered, widely populated area for today and tomorrow, but if you get a large tornado on the ground whether it's oklahoma city, wichita falls or dallas, there's always that threat of damage. yesterday my hometown got hit. i watched the tornado on video. when i grew up in omaha they said omaha never gets tornados. yesterday that proved that theory wrong. scattered rain showers across oklahoma and texas and get heavy into arkansas for the weekend and that's where the potential for severe weather and flooding could be. >> just keep coming, so please keep us on it and i hope everybody in your hometown is all right. america first. that is the donald trump mantra. it was a one-line speech that he then went into more suggestions about how that will apply around the world. a trump advisor on national security is going to speak exclusively to cnn about why

america first, that will be the foreign policy approach of a donald trump administration, but what does that mean given all the complexity of the world? we spoke exclusively with one of trump's national policy advisors and she joins us now. key interview at the perfect time. thank you for bringing this to us, my friend. >> you bet. it's my pleasure. people have called trump outrageous, controversial. this candidate that shoots from the hip, but a word that trump likes to use, unpredictable. and that unpredictability is why chuck says he should be our next president. we started our conversation with trump's thoughts on iran and nuclear weapons. let's take a listen. >> i think he was very clear on iran that the answer is no nuclear weapons, no way, no how, never.
3:38 am
>> so how is he going to do that? >> i think it starts with articulating, you know, the end state and he's going to have to use the means available to the president up to and including the threat of force to bring them back, but i think if you do start to put the economic power of the u.s. to work, the iranians are also practical people. not all of the iranians support their tyrannical regime and i think it could bring about an implosion of their regime and bring them back into the nations of the world, but again, that's just my personal opinion. i think the tactics that would do this, to implement it, a lot of those will become as mr. trump says, not predictable, they'll remain flexible and won't necessarily broadcast them. >> he's made it clear he's not afraid to go to war, but he is only going to do it if indeed --
3:39 am
>> i think what he said was that war will always be the last resort, that he will try economic power, diplomatic power, all of these things before he goes to war, but he was basically reassuring our military that if he decides to fight, we fight to win. >> so when it comes to iran and nuclear weapons -- >> we can't let them have it. >> so it could mean war. >> hopefully not. >> so if japan and south korea could not defend themselves and north korea did come after them, would the u.s. step in? >> i think as -- as the general said our strategy will be classified and as mr. trump said, our response will be unpredictab unpredictable. so they would have to work that calculus themselves. i don't think anybody's going to telegraph that. >> from your experience in the region, from what you know, look, you've been to the dmz.
3:40 am
you know about this cat and mouse game that takes place. what would you advise? >> my advice would be classified and i would agree with being unpredictable at this point. >> let's talk about things he said in the past. he's made controversial comments for example we're not only going to go after the isis fighters, but we're going to take out their families. you as a commander, i mean, would you ever tell your troops to do something like that? >> well, not in those words. i think he is prone to drawing very stark contrasts when he's trying to make a point. i think his point was that we are playing by different rules of engagement than the enemy and he was saying that if they're going to play tough, then we have to be able to play tough and if that means you know, taking another look at our rules of engagement, we do. >> do you think he honestly believes in everything that he's saying or is some of this for show? >> i can't say it's for show,
3:41 am
but if you look at the politics of getting elected, there is an awful lot of drama in that act going back through our history. so when you talk about do you mean everything you say, you're talking about issues, you're trying to crack into a shell of common speak that -- and to bring up topics that have been taboo and in some cases in order to do that you have to be kind of brusque and he's doing that, but underlying that is a genuine concern for america and for the direction he sees america heading, which may be the wrong direction and he wants to put it on the right direction. to underlying all of the brusqueness is a deep love of america and a deep respect for the american people and a desire to set policies that will make america first. >> you know, in his speech yesterday, too, trump said
3:42 am
chris, that if he's elected president isis is gone and when i asked him how exactly trump would do that his simple answer, because he's donald trump. >> well, that's a big part of the sell here, right, is that his charisma, his perceived strength that that will be a savl that we'll apply going forward, but foreign policy is not as easy to finesse as the to say strong things about what you'll do at home. now, one of the things that was somewhat of a big tell yesterday was that trump was working off the prompter. and that is a nod to people who like him that maybe he'll be more malleable going forward. >> that's so interesting that you love that and i love that you asked that, because when we all walked in the room and we saw the teleprompter, we all looked at each other and we said all right. he's going to stay focused. this is great. he's not going off the rails for hours and hours. it was interesting and then when you listen to the speech, yes,
3:43 am
it was more presidential. it was historical. he didn't use curse words. you know, he talked about specific issues. kubic told me he reminds him a lot of ronald reagan. reagan, when he didn't understand something, he listened to his advisers. he asked questions. he digested it quickly and then he reacted. so he definitely made it clear that trump is listening to his advisers and he's being educated. >> what an interesting contrast. you've got him talking about donald trump and they say he listened and he didn't use any curse words. what a bar we've set for this particular state of play. >> and his numbers keep rising. >> and that's the justification for him at this point. thank you so much for this interview. >> thanks, chris. it looks like an ugly day for stocks. global markets are rattled this morning.

3:53 am
she is a woman, she is playing the woman card left and right. she didn't play it last time with obama. but she's playing it much harder this time. and she will be called on it. >> if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in. >> well, that was donald trump repeating his claim that hillary clinton is quote, playing the woman card, and hillary clinton responding. donald trump also claims that she would not be winning primaries if she were a man. is that an effective attack line? let's bring in our political commentator and our republican consultant. ladies, great to have you. margaret, we'll start with you.
3:54 am
will this be an effective attack line? >> this is playing into hillary clinton's hand. if you could genetically breed a candidate less capable or predisposed to running for president you would breed donald trump. he's got this litany of attacking women that can be pulled up and has been by republican challengers let alone hillary clinton. as we all know the female vote has the majority of the electorate and mitt romney lost that by 12 percentage points. if you're going to get a winning coalition together you've got to be better with women and he's already at a more than 70% unfavorable rating with them. >> does that feed into that narrative? >> i think it's more effect i have to attack her on her record as secretary of state. her failed record i would add, but i think there's a divide between older women and younger women and younger women recent when hillary clinton plays the victim card against bernie
3:55 am
sanders when he accused her of shouting or said excuse me. she played directly into the gender type that women are weak and women are victims. it's insulting to women who are young and trying to be strong and trying their best to be strong powerful women. when she stands on the stage and instead of attacking bernie sanders for his record attacks him for being sexist that falls on deaf ears with young women. >> millennial women are actually were fst by almost 30 percentage points so that is a divide. the problem is women dislike donald trump more. >> if we pulled those up, donald trump has many more unfavorables than hillary clinton does. he is at 66%. she is at 48%. so kelly, given that, i mean, given this is a vulnerability for this as well, why is he using this line of attack? >> that's why he should resist giving her a softball because i
3:56 am
agree with everything he said. i think it was accurate and spot on, but when you're trying to move those unfavorables it's more effective to go after her record. we see with republican women, people were taken aback by him at first. so i think he can move those numbers. >> those are republican primary voters an we know those who vote for donald trump is really in his camp. >> kelly's talking about if there was a trend line and for people who were scared off by him at first and his bluster that maybe some republican women are warming to him. >> i don't know that we -- we still see a very strong number of republican women who say i mean, between 30 and 40% who say they will not vote for donald trump. and hillary is already targeting him. the best way to run against the first female president is to run exactly the way bernie sanders has. take her on the issues and run an aspirational campaign that's something about much larger than yourself. that's what's been effective
3:57 am
with women with bernie sanders, i think donald trump could take a page out of the play book. >> of all the things he could attack her on, why is he going for the woman card? >> i think it's an important thing to bring up. republican women especially understand the line of attack that i brought up earlier that she does play the victim card so with republican primary women that's an effective line of attack right now. but as we pivot to the general election he needs to go to planned parenthood, that will fall on -- >> but that's a tough one after saying women should be punished. of course he spent the rest of the day putting out different positions. but the attacks on carly fiorina's face, on saying this stuff about women and abortions, i mean, this is continuing what some of husbais critical you ca think of his negative feelings toward women. >> this is what his wife said, he's attacked men, he's attacked
3:58 am
women, he treats men and women equally. we can play the sound bytes that he said about carly fiorina. but he was attacking jeb bush and they're not reserved just for the female gender. >> they're especially harsh against females. we all know like, you can put together a litany of attacks he's had against women that are particularly below the belt and do sort of ring true. and as you're running for the first female nominee for the president it makes you particularly vulnerable. >> but do you think that it's working? that it's working for the hillary clinton attack that some people who like donald trump do think she's playing the woman card? >> yes, that's right. they're republican primary voters. they are not the people you need to win in the general election and get over the linend a have a coalition that's going to get you the 70 plus million votes you need to win the presidency. >> does it tone it down for the general? >> i think hillary clinton will bring up these statements repeatedly and he's going to
3:59 am
very effectively say you want to bring up my statements from the 1990s? let's see what your husband was doing and -- >> that will be cryptonite. i mean, truly that is where you play directly into her strongest point. your point is that hillary clinton is playing the victim card, not the woman card. make her a victim again. remember i'm old enough to remember the 1990s. i'm old enough to remember that hillary clinton won that round because hillary clinton was a victim of her husband's indiscretions, all of the drama from that. >> he has telegraphed that he's going to do that in the general so fasten your seat belts. it's going to be a bumpy ride. we're following a lot of news. also carly fiorina will join us live. let's get right to it. >> our goal is peace and prosperity, not war and destruction. >> let's all concede that foreign policy is not donald trump's strongest suit. >> i think he's got it about
4:00 am
right. >> it's isis. their days are numbered. >> i will do everything to keep this country safe. >> our ambassador was murdered. hillary clinton decided to go home and sleep. >> when i hear the kind of reckless rhetoric coming from donald trump, it's not only offensive, it is dangerous. >> our country is being taken away from us. >> do not go with the washington insiders who have sold us down the river. >> i am prepared to stand by his side and give this everything i have. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to your "new day." donald trump outlining his foreign policy plan with a message, america first. his proposal light on details and igniting some sharp criticism from his critics. this as ted cruz announces carly fiorina as his running mate in hopes of trumping trump in
4:01 am
indiana. we will speak live with carly fiorina in just a few moments. >> bernie sanders laying off hundreds of staffers as he doubles down in hi bid to stay in the race. we have the 2016 case covered the only way cnn can. we have cnn live in washington. the latest, my friend? >> reporter: good morning, chris. well, let trump be trump. it has been the guiding principle of donald trump's campaign throughout the entirety of this race, but in recent weeks people have been raising questions both internally and outside the campaign. what exactly does that mean as he eyes a general election possibility? is it the boisterous showman or is it the back room deal maker, a statesman if you will. over the course of 12 hours it became clear, donald trump is not necessarily sure what the answer is yet.
4:02 am
a tale of two donald trumps. >> we're ready to put it away, folks. now we're down to two stragglers. let's be nice. >> mocking ted cruz's last ditch effort to blunt his march forward by announcing his running mate, carly fiorina. >> what he's doing picking vice presidents? >> and ridiculing his alliance with republican rival john kasich. >> this little marriage of the two of them, boy did that backfire. i call them the colluders. right? the colluders. i love talking about it because what stupid decisions -- >> a far cry from the serious scripted gop front runner on display during a foreign policy speech just a few hours earlier. >> america first will be the major and overriding theme of my administration. >> reporter: reading from a teleprompter trump offered few specifics irn stead repeating campaign pledges on isis and nato. >> the u.s. must be prepared to
4:03 am
let these countries defend themselves. >> and forged new ones with countries traditionally seen as threats. >> some say the russians won't be reasonable. i intend to find out. >> reporter: the speech prompting former rival lindsay graham to declare ronald reagan must be rolling over in his grave. could cruz's gamble with fiorina win in indiana? many say it's do or die for him. >> it is unusual to make the announcement as early as we're doing so now. i think all would acknowledge this race, if anything, it is unusual. >> now, the reality is, guys, we've been digging into delegate math for hours on end over the last couple of months but it does come down to indiana. if donald trump gets a lion's share of the state's 57
4:04 am
delegates his path to nomination becomes clear. the hope is to stop donald trump in indiana, work on the alliance with john kasich going forward. there is is still an opportunity to block donald trump but as trump has said himself presumptive nominee not only has a nice ring to it if you work inside the campaign but it could become a reality very soon. >> let's bring in renee elmers. she last month became the first woman in congress to endorse donald trump. good morning. >> good morning. good to be with you. >> i know you were with donald trump yesterday during this foreign policy speech. tell us what you made of it. >> well, i thought he laid out his plan of action. this was a frame work going forward. he identified the areas that he feels that obama has failed the people when it comes to foreign
4:05 am
policy and national security. so i think this is the frame work, as a businessman that's what you do. you put together your plan and you go from there. that's the approach he's taking. >> some people felt there were many mixed messages in it and that it had a lack of specifics. so specifically, what did you hear that he would do? for instance, i mean, he said that he was very upset that christians were being persecuted in some places around the world, as everyone is. what would he do? >> well there again, he's putting the plan together. he doesn't have the folks at the table yet. he's got his advisers, he's working with his advisers, he's listening carefully to what he needs to do but at the same time the plan hasn't been formulated yet. goodness sakes, this is his first policy speech and i thought he really nailed it because he laid out a plan of action, he identified the areas of weakness that all americans are identifying with. this is why donald trump is identifying with the american people. they understand his point of view. they feel he's very relatable to
4:06 am
them, and he's laying out a game plan. we'll know more later as we go forward, but you got to put the facts together and that's where the american people have been left behind. >> some of his critics felt there was a lot of flip flopping even within his speech as well as positions that he'd taken in the past and that confused them. for instance on libya, so let me play for you some of the various positions that he's taken. listen to this. >> one day we're bombing libya and getting rid of a dictator to foster democracy for civilians. the next day we're watching the same civilians suffer while that country falls and absolutely falls apart. >> ghadafi in libya is killing thousands of people. nobody knows how bad it is and we're sitting around, we are soldiers all over the middle east and we're not bringing them in to stop this horrible carnage. now, we should go in, we should stop this guy which would be very easy and very quick. we could do it surgically, stop
4:07 am
him from doing it and save these lives. we should do it on a humanitarian basis, immediately go into libya, knock this guy out very quickly and effectively and save the lives. >> so congresswoman, there's one example. calling strongly for intervention in libya and saying something different yesterday. >> but there again, what he's doing is identifying the issues that the american people are bringing to him. he is basically echoing the confusion that the american people have had on all of the foreign policy moving forward through the obama administration. this is also the part that hillary clinton played. so he is basically echoing the -- the thoughts and the fears, the concerns of the american people when it comes to national defense. women are very concerned about this issue. and if you look back, this -- these were comments that he's made over time, and remember, he hasn't been a presidential
4:08 am
candidate for all that long. >> sure, but isn't he adding to the confusion when he's taking such strong positions, but they're opposite to each other? it's hard to know whether he believes in interventionism or he doesn't. >> there again, we've got to put the facts together. he's just going in now and formulating these plans of action. what he is saying is i want results. i want to send a strong message to our allies and to our enemies that we are not going to stand back as a country anymore. that's the point he's making right now. how this will go forward will be a plan of action that he will put together with the military leaders that he will trust and move with, but at the same time, not giving away the plan to our enemies. >> he got his share of criticism for the foreign policy speech. here's nicolas burns, he was an ambassador to both republican and democratic administrations. frankly trump doesn't have the
4:09 am
qualities to be the commander in chief. a lack of in depth knowledge, a lack of sophistication about the very complex world that we face and a lack of humility about the restraint that america sometimes has to apply. what trump did is cast a series of ultimatums against our allies, against nato and against japan and south korea. what do you say to the people who have been in foreign policy who say that donald trump has been making them nervous? >> i think there are a lot of people in foreign policy that are happy to help donald trump formulate their plan of actions. it's easy for people to come in and criticize him, but here's a person who simply relates to the american people, who wants to get a job done and show results. i think that's what his speech was about yesterday. it wasn't about details. it wasn't about going in and giving away the plan of action. it was about reassuring the american people that he is going
4:10 am
to be on the job and he is going to do what is right to protect every american family in this country. >> congresswoman, do you know who donald trump's foreign policy add vivisers are? >> i do not. i know that he has a very good team of advisers in place, but i have not been at those meetings. >> let's talk about the other big news from yesterday and that is ted cruz tapping carly fiorina to be his vice presidential running mate. do you think that will help him in indiana? >> well, it certainly will help him because carly fiorina i think is an american success story especially as a woman who has made it up through the ranks and done very well. what ted cruz needed to do was bring her on, one, to try to change the story from the night before where he lost big in all five states. he had to have a game changer. i think it was brilliant on his part. he is a washington insider. he is the lawyer that you're going to want to have as a
4:11 am
defense attorney if you find yourself in trouble, but i don't think he's the person we want as commander in chief. he is a washington insider. he spent his entire adult life in the public, not in the private sector. so here's a person from the outside who has been a success in the private sector and yes, i think she's going to bring some positives to his -- to his campaign although i do believe it's too late. >> okay. thank you so much for being on "new day." we appreciate it. and we should let everyone know that ted cruz's newly minted running mate, carly fiorina will join us live in just minutes. a shakeup in bernie sanders' campaign, his team letting go of hundreds of staffers while vowing to fight on. @ena jones is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: good morning. some pink slips coming for a sizable chunk of the sanders' team. they're laying off 200 staffers out of 550.
4:12 am
this is after that disappointing showing where he lost four out of five states that voted. sanders' team says this is the natural progression of any campaign with so many states having voted in this primary process. so the workers in the states that just voted will be affected but so will workers in some other states and some members of the national staff and so while the sanders' folks are saying this is not a big deal, there's nothing to see here, we know these are not generally the moves you make if you think you're going to be the nominee and have to mount a national 50-state campaign in just a matter of weeks, really. still sanders is vowing to stay in the race until the convention. take a listen to what he had to say yesterday. >> we intend to win every delegate that we can so that when we go to philadelphia in july we're going to have the votes to put together the strongest progressive agenda that any political party has ever seen.
4:13 am
>> so there he is saying he hopes to have an influence on things on the democratic platform. meanwhile clinton is now pivoting once again to the general election. she's got her eyes squarely on donald trump. >> all right. foreign policy is on the table and we are seeing just how complicated and horrible it can be in the news this morning. at least 27 people dead after an air strike hit a hospital in syria. we're told three kids, two hospital guards, and one of the last few pediatricians in aleppo were among those killed. the hospital located in a rebel held neighborhood in that city of aleppo was hit by a missile from a fighter jet. at this point we just don't know who's behind the strike. this hospital was one of those run by doctors without borders. a baltimore teenager holding a replica of a gun was shot by police. the 13-year-old reportedly ran when police spotted him with what look like a semiautomatic
4:14 am
pistol. police say an officer thinking it was real, fired at the teenager, striking him. when they got close, they realized the gun was a fake. the teenager is expected to be okay. baltimore's police commissioner said the officer who fired did not act inappropriately. >> space x is aiming to reach the red plant within a couple of years. the goal is to send an unmanned dragon spacecraft to mars as soon as 2018 and explore how to safely land cargo on that planet without using parachutes. 2018, that's in throwing distance. >> i saw the movie the martian the plane ride back from my vacation so i understand everything. >> it could easily happen. hopefully i wouldn't get left behind if i were part of that, but it's fine. >> what is happening is they are provetizing the space stuff. >> they are like crazy. donald trump unveiling his
4:15 am
america first policy. suggesting allies don't pay their fair share. is this a doctrine at all, let alone realistic is this we'll get reaction to the speech from former nato backer, general wesley clark. when josh atkins books at he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so you know what he gives? i'll give you everything i've got and then some. he gives a hundred and ten percent! i'm confident this 10% can boost your market share. feel me lois? i'm feeling you. boom! look at that pie chart. the ready for you alert, only at what if 30,000 people

4:17 am
4:18 am
4:19 am
business of campaigning today, stumping in indiana, later in california. the republican front runner coming off his first major foreign policy speech. he even used a teleprompter. he was on the subject of nato that allies should pay their fair share. let's discuss with wesley clark. when it comes to things military it's just about what you know from your experience and whatnot, so we'll keep the politics to the side if you can. your general assessment of trump's speech. >> i'm glad he said he wasn't coming in to start a war. i'm glad he said he will only use the military as a last resort and they'll have objectives if he uses the military, but these are things that every president says and every president attempts to do.
4:20 am
having a coherent foreign policy, every administration wants to do it and having nato allies bear more of the burden, everybody since general dwight d. eisenhower was the nato commander in 1952 has had the same criticism of the europeans and yet the alliance has worked in america's favor. it's for us, it's not just for them. >> three different subjects came up. first was yesterday in an interview with us, i said, what do you think of the oeshl operators, 250 more going into syria, president obama's announcement, do you agree? he said i do but we should never tell people. be unpredictable. isn't there law, isn't there policy in place that you can't just do whatever you want as president with troops and not tell anybody else? >> yes, generally we do put out the numbers and we have to and we report to congress on this and so forth. >> i mean, especially with the america's recent history of the blood that's been expended abroad and the feelings of the general population about whether
4:21 am
it was warranted or not, do you believe the next president could be more secretive about where they put america's fighting men and women? >> i think it's a hollow thesis to go into, because the truth is that you get strength at home from disclosing to the america people what you're doing. when people are asking you to do things and do something about it, the president of the united states says i've got a plan, it's secret, you won't know anything about it. that works for a couple of weeks but after that people say what are you doing? if you're going to be a democratically elected leader in a democracy you have a responsibility to the public. >> isis is a big topic of concern. here is a quick statement on what he said his objective was. >> and then there's isis. i have a simple message for them. their days are numbered. i won't tell them where and i won't tell them how. we must, as a nation, be more unpredictable. we have totally predictable.
4:22 am
we tell everything. we're sending troops, we tell them. we're senning something else, we have a news conference. we have to be unpredictable and we have to be unpredictable starting now. >> does that work for you? >> well, it doesn't work with respect to isis because we know what the bounds of the isis equation are, that you can attack them with special forces and you can get the allies to fight to a certain extent like the iraqis and the curds akurds forth. if you attack them you've got a lot of civilians in there. you cannot do the carpet bombing that ted cruz talks about. you can't even use exclusively military force because even if you can eliminate every single one of the people that's in there now, others can come in and govern the space. mr. trump says he doesn't believe in nation building. that's good. we're not very good at building other people's nations but you've got to have governance in
4:23 am
ungoverned spaces to deal with isis. that's the problem in libya and also the problem in syria and in northern iraq. >> we just saw 27 people killed, the doctors without borders hospital was hit outside aleppo and this was supposedly surgical air strikes going on. so the risk is clear. predictability, is that part of the problem in our fight against isis? >> not against isis it's not, because isis is not -- they're not a major state that you're seeking to deter. the reason for unpredictability comes from the old cold war strategy which says you don't want your deterrence to be calcuable. you don't want a thinking opponent to figure out a way around what you're trying to prevent him to do. that's fine. so there's unpredictability in it. saying it's a big strategic doctrine and isis shouldn't know, no, they should know what we're doing pt we should be defeating isis with reliable means.
4:24 am
we should be going after them idea logically. we should be going after them in middle east and asia where they are. >> the words "america first" smacks familiar to some of america's policy back in the 1930s. do you see parallels to isolationism in what we heard from trump and are there concerns in that? >> i think he's playing on that strain of america, but you know, every nation's foreign policy is about its own interests. america's foreign policy has always been about its own interests. i don't think there's ever been a president of the united states who came into office and said i'm going to give away what's really in america's interest to make other people happy. presidents don't do that. it's a question how you interpret those interests, but the way that mr. trump present them yesterday was not a coherent interpretation. and just to get to the matter of russia in particular, you know, every recent american president has tried to do a reset with russia.
4:25 am
i remember rice told me, you people screwed up the relations with russia. we're going to fix that and work with the russians. well k, we know that didn't go anywhere other than trying -- >> clinton tried to reset. >> absolutely. and it's not about the united states. and one of the things that bothers me the most in mr. trump's speech is this idea that he personally can redirect american's foreign policy. this isn't a real estate negotiation. it's not something you can sit down across a table. you're dealing with long-term national interests, a set of allies that we've worked with for 60 years. they expect consistency, they expect reliability and this country has consistent long-term interests so going in and trying to do it like a hotel in moscow, i'll put it here and you give me this and so forth, that may work on the margins of some small agreement, but as a basis for long-term stable relationships and heading off the kinds of
4:26 am
conflicts we're heading toward with china and russia, no, we've got big challenges with china and russia and you can't duck those challenges by calling on your allies to spend more on defense. >> understood. general wesley clark. thank you. in a hail mary move by an underdog ted cruz picking his running mate months before the convention despite the delegate math not adding up. what is the strategy here? we are going to speak to hi new running mate, carly fiorina. she joins us next on "new day." (avo) i've always been a dog person. my name is barbara and i make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa. now that i work there and see all of the care and the ingredients that go into it. i value the food even more. i feed yoshi dog chow natural because there's no artificial colors, preservatives and it's made with real chicken. he's got so much energy. his coat is so shiny. and he just seems over all happier. i'm so proud to make dog chow natural in davenport, iowa.

have lent a hand to their communities. this year, we're extending our partnership with our friends at red nose day and global citizen. making it our most rewarding day ever... hands down. indiana is the next battle ground for the republican presidential candidates and ted cruz will be campaigning with his new running mate, carly fiorina. cruz making his choice earlier than any other candidate in recent memory so what's behind the timing and the surprising move? let's ask carly fiorina who joins us now. great to see you. >> good morning. how are you doing? >> doing well. so before we get to ted cruz' motivation for the timing and
4:31 am
for the choice of you, i want to ask about your motivation in agreeing to this role. as you know, after tuesday's primaries, it is mathematically impossible for ted cruz to clinch this nomination so why did you want to take this on? >> well, first, of course, donald trump needs 1237 delegates and he doesn't have them yet. and i think it's really important that donald trump isn't our nominee and then i think it's really important that we beat hillary clinton. i took on this challenge for the same reason i voted for ted cruz before i'd ever had a conversation with him about endorsing him, for the same reason i've been out on the trail with him for the last seven weeks. there's a lot at stake. i think the soul of our party is at stake. i think the future of our nation is at stake and as i said, when donald trump announced his candidacy in june of 2015, he doesn't represent me, he doesn't represent my party.

ted cruz does represent me. he does represent conservative principles that i believe in and he's also a fighter. and the reason i ran for president is i think we need a conservative in the white house who understands we have too much power concentrated in the hands of few people and we need a fighter who's going to actually fight that system. that's what ted cruz is, that's what i am and i'm proud and honored to join him in this fight for the soul of our party and the future of our nation. >> so let's talk about senator cruz' motivation and the timing. this is the earliest announcement of a vp pick in four decades. i believe the last time we saw something like this was ronald reagan in 1976. it didn't work out back then, but the point is that in the past less than 24 hours people have been saying that they see it as an attention grabbing stunt of ted cruz, or you know, a diversionary tactic to sort of pull attention away from donald
4:33 am
trump's wins. how much of that do you think went into this timing? >> none, but let me just say, everything about this election has been unprecedented. so wow, could anyone have predicted the election this cycle? no, i don't think so and most and many predictions have been wrong. look, anyone who knows ted cruz knows that he is a thoughtful dl deliberative man. he doesn't do anything in a rush or in a panic and this process has been going on within his team, the vetting process, the conversations for quite a long time and we've gotten to know each other very well over the last seven weeks, but i also think the fundamental here is that ted cruz wants to make it clear to the voters of this nation and the voters of indiana and those states that have not yet had a chance to make their choice that the choice is really clear. on the one hand, you have cruz and fiorina. and on the other hand you have
4:34 am
trump and clinton and i put them in the same category because they are two sides of the same coin. neither one of them will ever fight the system because they are the system. hillary clinton has made her millions selling access and influence and donald trump has made his billions buying people like hillary clinton off. they will not fight the system although they claim to do so to win a job that they aspire to. they are the system. >> when you were running for president, you said some critical things about ted cruz. you said that he says one thing in manhattan, he says another thing when he's in iowa, you wondered why he didn't renounce his canadian citizenship shooner but maybe there was nothing more damning about his efforts, this was in 2013 at the government shutdown. so let me play those for everyone. >> i think ted cruz' tactics were wrong. there's no honor in charging a hill that you know you can't take, only casualties, although ted cruz maybe got name recognition and money along the way. >> ms. fiorina, is there a
4:35 am
parallel to what is happening now? is he charging another hill and in terms of casualties along the way for the gop party now? >> well, you know, i don't agree with my husband about everything, and ted cruz and i have differed on tactics. i thought that it probably wasn't going to work to repeal obama care when we didn't have a majority in the senate. on the other hand, i think that fight, frankly forced the republican party when they did have a majority to vote to repeal obama care and i can assure your listeners and your viewers that with president cruz, obama care will be repealed which is what has to happen. here's the thing. donald trump doesn't have 1237 delegates. that number represents the majority of the republican party. and what has been clear over the course of this election is that the majority of republicans don't want donald trump as their nominee.
4:36 am
neither do i. i think we need a conservative. see, for some of us, principles matter. policies matter. values matter. character matters. i know that matters to hoosiers and so we're going to go fight for principles and policies and values and character that represent our party and that will make the future of this nation bright instead of dim. >> i do want to get to indiana in one second but i want to ask you one more question about that number 1237. because what you're saying your logic somebody has to hit 1237 echos exactly what skpeeker paul ryan said. rules are rules. if somebody doesn't hit 1237 it's an open convention, but in exit poll after exit poll on tuesday many many states we saw that voters said that they believe if someone gets close, close enough, they should be the nominee. they were less at the timered to the 1237. you can see.
4:37 am
they believe that whoever got the most votes, 70% in exit polls thought that that person should be the nominee. so if you thought that you would be going against the will of the voters. >> well, you know, the delegate system has been in place a long time. and contested conventions haven't happened in a while, but there's nothing untoward about them and nothing unprecedented about them. we're a republic, actually and although maybe donald trump is just figuring that out. you know, if the steelers, i know the people of pennsylvania, my husband's from pennsylvania, the beloved steelers, if the steelers are on the 5 yard line, it's close, but it's not a touchdown. so donald trump can get close, but it's not a touchdown until you have 1237 delegates. >> let's talk about indiana. that's where it seems that all the cruz campaign's eggs are in the indiana basket.
4:38 am
jobs are the number one issue in indiana. you've been very honest about the jobs that you outsource when you were the head of hewlett packard at the time to congress in 2004, you said there is no job that is america's god given right anymore. we have to compete for jobs. you were talking about the outsourcing that happened then. do you fear that your take back then and the outsourcing will come back to haunt you in indiana? >> well, that's your characterization of how i described it. look, we have to compete for jobs. we can't just assume jobs grow on trees we can't assume that the federal government creates jobs. they don't. the private sector does. and it's true that many jobs that i outsourced from california went where? texas. why texas? because texas created an environment where jobs could be created. and you see, that's the problem. in america today with obama care, we see epa, with the tax
4:39 am
rates that's the highest in the world, we are crushing job creation. and in particular, we are crushing small businesses who create two thirds of the new jobs. so actually it's important to know where jobs come from. i do. and it's important to understand that you do have to compete for jobs. and it's important as well to understand that if the federal government is the only one creating jobs, then the problem is fewer and fewer americans are paying for those jobs. that's the problem we've got today. and it's why record numbers of men are out of work, record numbers of women are living in poverty and record numbers of young people think the american dream is a figment of someone else's imagination and doesn't apply to them. >> it's not just my characterization that this could be a challenge for you in indiana. there are many people saying this including conservative radio talk host laura ingram who said it could be a real albatross.
4:40 am
let me play this for you. >> indiana, which i assume trump is going to hit the globalization as failure theme that he struck today in his foreign policy speech, the outsourcing issue is a disaster. that is just -- that's not going to be a positive one and fairly or unfairly, fiorina hp, that outsourcing issue which was discussed obviously during the run against barbara boxer in 2010 where she lost by about a million votes in california that became really an albatross around her neck. >> do you worry it will be a vulnerability in indiana? >> i don't, actually. because i think far better than donald trump who's outsourced all of his tie manufacturing to china and who hires foreign workers instead of americans who want the jobs, i understand exactly why carrier left indiana. carrier left indiana because the climate that has been created in america is destroying jobs.
4:41 am
and it's interesting that of course barbara boxer, yeah, she played an ad in california in 2010 so it was barbara boxer's characterization of my record. i'll stand on my record. i'll run on my record. and i can explain in great detail why jobs leave california and go to texas, and it has to do with policies. >> okay. >> and tax rates. >> ms. fiorina, you did something unusual on the campaign trail yesterday in accepting the nod for the running mate. you sang. so let's play a little portion of this moment. >>. ♪ i know two girls that i just adore ♪ ♪ i'm so happy i can see them more ♪ ♪ because we travel on the bus all day. we get to play, we get to play ♪ . >> okay.
4:42 am
that was adorable first of all and you admirably kept a tune. will there be more singing in the campaign going forward? >> well, on the bus, for sure. you know, look, this is a -- campaigning is tough. but campaigning can be joyful as well. and i think every day should be a joyful experience and for me, singing to little girls or singing to my granddaughters or singing to my dogs is a source of joy. >> that is great. carly fiorina, thanks so much for joining us on "new day." we appreciate it. >> thank you. let's get over to my kayla. >> all right. donald trump, ted cruz on the attack. is their nasty primary battle hurting the gop? a former republican senator weighs in next.

4:47 am
probably wearing on people where they're starting to see something besides superlatives and starting to see some substance so i think it's something that's -- we're going to see overtime. don't know. >> would he get your vote? >> not yet. i've got to hear, you know, he's said a lot of things, but he's not told the how of a lot of things, and i want to hear the hows. you know, politicians routinely claim a whole lot, but is there any meat behind it and that's what i'm waiting to hear. >> and part of what he said yesterday in terms of his foreign policy, part of it was very good. >> which part? >> well, we've been subsidizing nato for years under agreements that they otherwise are supposed to actually carry their load. every time we do that we lessen our capability to be there in the future and so i like that.
4:48 am
i like talking to our friends, you know, if you have a friend that uses you, and never carries their load, they're really not your friend. and so i think the very fact that if we're going to have a pact and i think we need a pact, then it ought to be on a participatory basis and everybody ought to carry their fair share and too long we've carried the fair share. >> that hits home for me. my wife says i'm asking for things all the time and i don't carry my load so let's move on to a different subject. what do you think about ted cruz picking carly fiorina? do you think this is a political gamble to distract or do you think this is a good pairing? >> i can't answer that because i don't know what their motivations are, but look, i have the utmost respect for carly fiorina. she's a brilliant woman. i knew her well during her senate race. she's quality, she loves this country, she's willing to
4:49 am
compromise and make things work, so i think she's a wonderful pick. i can't answer the question of whether this is a -- you know, a fourth quarter defense position or it's an offensive position that says hey, wake up, america, we have a very talented female here that could actually do a good job for her country. >> you seem to have a hugher estimate of her than you have of senator cruz. do you believe she's the stronger part of that pair? >> no, ted cruz -- ted has done everything he's told the people of texas he would do. it's -- how he does it is -- how he stepped on toes is his problem and so ted's a nice guy. i don't have any personal problems with ted. but strategies and tactics matter, and how you get to where you want to get to matters, and so i -- you know, i applaud that he's done this. i think she's a fine fit for him we'll see what hams. but the numbers are getting
4:50 am
tight now that it is going to be hard to have anybody but trump probably as the nominee. >> you would come out for marco rubio, he is no longer in the race, but having suspended his campaign against, he gets to keep his delegates, more than john kasich has now, about 170 or so. what do you think should happen with the delegates? >> well, i think if they're pledged to marco and he has any influence, he has the right to say here is what i think. but he may be releases him. again, i haven't had that conversation marco. i think marco would have made a great presidential candidate, and i assure you, marco would have won. nobody could have beaten him. and it's because he appeals to cross-sections of america in a way that touches people's heart, not just their mind. >> senator, doctor, tom coburn, always great to have you on "new day." look forward to having you again.
4:51 am
>> good to see you. it god bless you. >> you as well. branding hillary clinton's time as a failure, but do they have common ground on foreign policy. we'll look at that next. i'm terrible at golf. he is. people say i'm getting better. no one's ever said that. but i'd like to keep being terrible at golf for as long as i can. he's just happier when he's playing. but he's terrible. for the strength and energy to keep doing what you love, try new ensure enlive. only patented ensure enlive has hmb, plus 20 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle. and its clinically proven formula helps you stay you. oh. nice shot. new ensure enlive. always be you.

4:56 am
incoherent. >> what part is unrealizablunre >> living in a galaxy, far, far away, meanwhile, back on planet earth, you have to govern. it is highly arguable whether or not any of the positions that trump has advanced during the campaign would survive, should he become president, and have to deal with a very imperfect effect world. but what he essentially is saying trust me. i'm the world's greatest negotiator. i know how to deal with putin, i know how to deal with isis, i won't tell you how, when or why, i have the answers and i understand the economic realities of a populous economic policy. so yeah, i mean, nobody is expecting a detailed road map, but what we got essentially, again, was a set of bromides tied together in some well ordered paragraphs. an frankly, that's not enough.
4:57 am
what i find so intriguing, though, is that there really is a common problem. whether it's an he or she who sits in the white house in 2017, they're going oh to face a world, hillary clinton or donald trump, that is basically divided into migraine headaches and root canals. and the imperfect options that they're going to face may well, i know i don't want to break the bank of credibility here, but it may actually produce responses on several key issues that have hillary and donald trump sharing some common ground. >> okay, that's interesting. so where do you see their common ground? >> well, i think there are three issues. one, of course, what to do about the islamic state. >> okay, let me stop you right there, because i want to juxtapose the things that
4:58 am
hillary a hillary and donald have said about that in a little nugget. will listen to this. >> i think what the president has consistently said which i agree with, is that we will support those who take the fight to isis. >> we have to be unpredictable. we have to be unpredictable starting now. but they're going to be gone. isis will be gone. if i'm elected president, and they'll be gone quickly. >> okay, so we need allies, hillary clinton says, we need unpredictabili unpredictability. what do you hear? >> well, you know, trump says the same thing about allies, he has threatened to boycott if they don't deploy their own ground forces to deploy isis. hillary clinton seems to be saying, not she is going to boycott saudi oil, but that the arab states have to do more.
4:59 am
one of trump's points was reassurance of allies and certain level of consistency. a contradiction, how unpredictable are you going to be. i don't think there is going to be much that separates them. both are against nation building, both against the scores of thousands of ground force, and both ultimately, i suspect will see the islamic state as a counterterrorism problem, not as a trillion dollar social science project to fix iraq and syria in their politics. >> one last question about isis. donald trump said something that a lot of people like, and respond to. he is uncomfortable with president obama telegraphing plans to send more troops, telegraphing plans to send 250 special ops soldiers to sir yeah. is that fair? should -- is it possible to do these things in a more sort of quiet way? >> i think if you you're talking about discreet military actions to kill terrorist leaders, yeah,
5:00 am
secrecy is critical. you cannot sustain a policy in a democratic in an intrusive media and congress frankly that deserves to be informed about what the executive is doing by basically acting quietly when it comes to the deployment of thousands of american forces. so no, i understand the unpredictability factor and we want to keep our enemies off balance, but in a republic such as ours, the notion that you're going to grow foreign policy in a closet like a mushroom makes no sense to me. >> aaron david miller, thanks so much. >> pleasure. following a lot of news this morning. let's get to it. >> our foreign policy is a complete and total disaster. weakness, confusion and

that's the full thesis that he gave yesterday. critics, a lot of them don't like it. they're saying the vision is light on details. others say they do like it because he said what matters first. ted cruz doesn't like all the attention so he tried to blunt the thunder by announcing carly fiorina as his running mate. is this going to help in indiana? >> as for the democrats, reality may be set anything for bernie sanders. his campaign is beginning to layoff hundreds of staffers. what is his path forward now. let's begin our coverage with phil mattingly. hi, phil. >> reporter: hey, alisyn. after two weeks of sweeping victories, donald trump making clear he is ready to move onto the general election. backing that up a little bit with a foreign policy speech yesterday, a detailed speech that he was at least attempting to show himself as a very real general election candidate. but there is an inherent tension in the trump campaign. do you move to the general election or do you keep doing what works.

old a lie yanlliancesalliances. >> and forged new ones, with countries traditionally seen as threats. >> some say the russians won't be reasonable. i intend to find out. >> the speech, prompting former rival lindsey graham, ronald reagan must be rolling over in his grave. could cruz's gamble deliver a win in indiana? many political insiders say it is do or die for him. >> so might ask why now. it is unusual to make the announcement as early as we're doing so now. i think all would acknowledge this race, if anything, it is unusual. >> now, guys, obviously it has been clear that donald trump has a real weakness amongst women voters, and cruz campaign making clear that carly fiorina will be used in that role, particularly in this crucial state of
5:05 am
indiana. they almost hope on some level, donald trump decides to attack her. well, that's happening. we saw it a little last night and we saw it alisyn in the middle of your interview with carly fiorina, donald trump tweeting out lyin' ted cruz who can never beat hillary clinton and has no path to victory, has chosen a vp candidate who failed badly in her own efforts. guys, the cruz campaign was hoping trump would attack, that's exactly what is happening. chris. >> thank you very much, appreciate it, phil. joining us now, sam clovis for the trump campaign. good to have you, sam. >> good to be here, chris. thanks. what do you think of fiorina/cruz? does it make a stronger pairing? >> well you have to ask the cruz campaign. they obviously think so. it doesn't matter to us. i keep going back to the notion that we have to adjust to the other campaigns in there. last time i checked the scoreboard, it looks to me like
5:06 am
they're going to have to adjust to us. and i think this is where they are. i think they think this is a move that's going to help them and i also think that indiana is really the last fire break for cruz in this campaign. because if he doesn't do well, if he doesn't sweep indiana, i think there is no possibility for him to create the narrative that we need to get to a contested convention. because that's the only way he can win. i don't see that happening. i think we're going to do fine in indiana. >> what does fine mean, sam? what are your internals telling you? >> i think we're going to win. i really do. indiana is a structure on delegates a little bit odd. but it is, it is almost a winner take all. i don't even know how to caveat it. we don't have the time to get into the details, but i think if we win indiana, it's over for everybody else. i think everybody else ought to get behind us. we can start concentrating on
5:07 am
hillary clinton, and we can get to the convention two months away and we'll have two months advantage in being able to campaign against the democrats. >> you think that saying that hillary clinton is playing the woman card is the best foot forward for you guys? >> well, i think it's, again, it goes right to the candor and honesty of our campaign, that mr. trump will say things that the rest of the people in the country are thinking. and i think that this is certainly one of those issues. i don't think that will be a main theme. i don't think that it's going to be, you know, there is plenty of negatives with hillary clinton. i don't think that's going to be an issue. we're not going to run out of material on that end. >> but you didn't wince at all, women aren't a particular strength for you, you know they are a big part of the electorate? >> i think that if you looked at the polling and the last primaries, chris, we won the
5:08 am
women, the women vote in each of those states. >> right, the one whose are coming out. but you know you don't have better than a quarter of the party coming out in all of these primaries. you know there is a lot left to the pie there. that's what i'm saying. >> well, i think it's awful early too. when we come back, and you ask yourself, what is going to attract the, you know, the woman's vote, is it going to be a woman? or is it going to be security, is it going to be economic mobility, is it going to be the security at home, security in your home. is it going to be a job, is it going to be those things that provide in the sanctuary for your family. those are the things that are going to attract voters, and that's what we're looking at. we don't care about gender or color or anything else. we have policies and programs who are going to advance that are going to give people the reason to vote for donald trump, as opposed to trying to get them not to vote for hillary clinton. >> well, we look forward --
5:09 am
>> when you start to see compare, side by side, the choice will be easy for the american people. >> we look forward to hearing from the ideas from the trump and clinton campaign right here on "new day." let's look at the foreign policy speech, and you address a couple of the criticisms of it. one is america first, smacks to people of 1930s isolationism. that could be a frightening concept. is that a fair comparison? what is your response in. >> no, i don't think it is a fair comparison. it is easy for people to draw that conclusion, and chris, you know i am a history buff. >> yes, you are. >> so i know these things, and again, i don't want to grill down in the nuances here, but the circumstances we had in the late '20s and early '30s are different than where we are today. we a fractured economy, and a lot of this, if you'll remember from the speech yesterday, the main theme is we don't get our economy back on firm ground and
5:10 am
we get positive gdp growth and worrying about our debt, none of this is possible. we can't do anything. we can't assist our allies. >> right. >> we can't do a lot of the other things, because we will not have the resources to do it. >> right, but -- >> that to me is the main thing that people should have taken away from the speech. >> that's an interesting choice of period comparison, because obviously you're coming out of the depression then and that was fueling the isolation. but that was a different time. the chrriticism isn't so much commerce based, it seemed to send ougt mixed messages, we're not going to get involved with things unless we have to. was he trying to spread the jam a little thin over the entire piece of toast yesterday? >> i don't think so. i think that maybe, you know, we're, you know, an attorney would say in court, assuming fact gs ns not in evidence.
5:11 am
i think what we look at, we assume that people understand where we are and what we're trying to say. and i think that sometimes because i thought the speech was great, i really enjoyed it. i enjoyed listening to it. >> did you write it. >> i understood exactly what he was saying. i understood exactly what he was saying. this is also, i will tell you, that when other -- when we have embassies or representatives of countries come to the campaign, we articulate the message very clearly in a very candid manner, and the reception has been extremely good. because they upnderstand exactl we're coming from. this is going on a lot more than people might think, where we have allies that come to the campaign, you know, nato allies and representatives of other countries that have asked and approached the campaign and for specific sit downs to talk about policy and where we are on talking about trade, talking about immigration, talking about
5:12 am
the recapzation of our military, burden sharing. these are all topics that are of great mutual interest to not only the united states but to other countries, and they need to hear from the next president of the united states what he has been thinking. >> sam, thank you very much for making the case on "new day" as always. >> always, chris. thank you very much. >> appreciate it. alisyn. democratic side, bernie sanders downsizing his campaign to adjust to a new reality. his team letting go of hundreds of staffers, as they forge ahead to the convention. cnn athena jones is live in washington. hi, athena. >> you're right. laying off a sizable chunk of the staff. this is coming after the disappointing showing on tuesday night, when he lost four out of the five states that voted. now, sanders' team says this is the national progression since so many states have voted in the process. so it's the workers in the

states that just voted that will be affected, but so will workers in other states and some members of the national staff, and so while you have the sanders folks saying there is nothing to see here, this is totally normal, you have to acknowledge, these are not generally the moves you make if you think you're going to be the nominee and have to mount a national 50 state campaign, just a matter of weeks from now. still, sanders is vowing to stay in the race until the convention. take a listen to what he had to say yesterday. >> we intend to win every delegate that we can. so that when we go to philadelphia in july, we're going to have the votes to put together the strongest progressive agenda that any political party has ever seen. >> and so while he is saying i he is in it to win it to become the nominee, he is also acknowledging he won't be able to do that, and using the influence of the delegates to change things in philadelphia.

the bernie sanders campaign beginning to layoff hundreds of campaign workers. sanders says he is staying in the race until the convention. what is the end game?
5:23 am
let's bring in washington director for move and bernie sanders supporter, ben wickler. >> i know it's uncomfortable to hear the media talking about sanders' end dwgame, but is it time to start talking about that in. >> 80% is now done. the campaign is slimming down in response. there is still about 20% to go, including california. there are a lot of kdelegates left at stake, and he is playing to the final buzzer, so we can change the conversation and change the country. >> let's talk about the end game. even if sanders won every single one until the end of the race, i don't know that he would be able to -- i mean, that's an unrealistic hypothetical, but he is really behind the eight ball here. what is the end game now for sanders? >> so sanders has been very clear. first of all, that everyone in
5:24 am
this country deserves a right to cast their ballot to make their choice and send their message through the primary process. he'll stay in through every primary and caucus. secondly, every vote for bernie sanders from now through the end, and all along, is a vote that clearly is standing for expanding social security for raising the minimum wage to $15, a host of issues that have been at the center of his campaign. when it comes time to set the democratic platform, time for the nominee to choose, you know, vice-presidential candidates and the first 100 days of the next democratic nomination, the stronger the progressive movement and bold the group of people pushing for visionary change in the country, i think the better off we're going to be. >> that's exactly what bernie sanders himself has said. he is now shooting for. let me play for you what he said
5:25 am
yesterday. >> we are in this campaign to win, but if we do not win, we intend to win every delegate that we can. so that when we go to philadelphia in july, we're going to have the votes to put together the strongest progressive agenda that any political party has ever seen. >> okay, so ben, he wants to be part of putting together the progressive platform for the democratic party. do you think that he also wants a cabinet position? does he want to be part of the next administration? >> you know, i won't speculate about what bernie sanders wants for his next job. i think he has already said he plans to go back to the senate and continue serving as the senator of vermont. from the beginning, this campaign has been more than just a candidate. it's been about the idea of a political revolution. it has shocked everyone in the country to see how many millions
5:26 am
of americans are willing to chip in money, make phone calls, get involved in making the political changes that are necessary, but everyone has dismissed as pie in the sky. the fact is, we're seeing states with $15 minimum wage laws. we're seeing a growing movement for paid family leave. we're seeing all these changes that were seen as impractical. now the task is to make a policy reality at the federal level. that's where the revolution will continue. >> as a sanders supporter, ben, as you are, are there some preconditions that you would like to see sanders extract from hillary clinton before encouraging his will he john le supporters. >> i don't think it is quid quo pro, you do this, you do that. what we're looking for, if secretary clinton wins the nomination, we're looking forward for her to carry forward
5:27 am
the torch. the core of the campaign, to make sure she is putting the kinds of changes we need for working people and the middle class at the center of her race. that's what will bring people out. that's what will energize young people, democratic. >> ben, thanks so much for being on "new day." we appreciate it. you know what, ali for being on "new day." >> thank you for another day. let me show you what's coming up. trump effect, he'll go down in flames and drag other republicans down with him. is he hurting or helping their channels. ahead, one gop senator up for reelection we'll talk to next. we stop arthritis pain, so you don't have to stop. tylenol® 8hr arthritis pain has two layers of pain relief.

a question that is more worth considering with the state of the race is if donald trump becomes the gop nominee, what will it mean for other republicans in the reelection process for congress. let's ask one, new hampshire senator, kelly aott, who is running for second term this fall. senator, it is good to have you with us this morning.
5:32 am
>> good morning, chris, good to be with you. >> the trump speech on foreign policy. not enough, too much? what say you? >> well, i have to confess, chris, i did not listen to it, because i was here. >> what? >> i was here doing my work in the senate. i can't comment on it, because i haven't listened to it yet. i have have to listen to it, but was busy doing other work. >> a clever diversion by you. >> no diversion. lots of work do here. >> absolutely. everybody agrees with that. let's talk about what you know to be some of the headlines, though. many say it is a new isolationism, america first is the theme. do you believe it is as simple as that for america? >> well, chris, i serve on the armed services committee. i believe as we look at what is happening around the world, we have so many challenges, in fact, ian clapper and i said this is one of the most challenging times we've seen. he has worked here for decades.
5:33 am
i believe that having a strong military and making sure that america supports its friends and allies and continues to be a leader around the world is important. that's my view on foreign policy. i've consistently brought that forward. >> do you have any concerns, donald trump, may hurt your reelection efforts? >> i'll be focusing on serving the people in new hampshire. my race is who is their voice in the senate to get things done for the people of our state, common sense new hampshire values. so again, we're very grassroots politics state, so they'll be focusing on my work in the senate. >> i'm about to give-and-take away. on my wrist right now, i have on a band from iava, the iraq and afghanistan veterans association. what's going on with the gi bill in congress? as you know, everybody says they
5:34 am
support the troops. this is a beautiful example to show it, and yet there was a sneaky vote in congress to divert money from within the gi bill, instead of adding money to it. this has veterans very upset. what can you tell us about the status of maintaining and growing the gi bill? >> well, chris, i'm actually the wife an iraq veteran, so i really believe what the iraq and afghan veterans have done and continue to do, we're still at war, we have our men and women over in afghanistan and now back in iraq, so what happened in the house in february, sort of one of those slight of hand issues, it happened without a enough public notice, is a cut to those w who reenlist, they can assign their education benefits and housing benefits to their children or spouse, and they cut that by the housing piece of it by 50% for veteran's bill they did. i think it's wrong. we're talking about people, if
5:35 am
you reenlist, you were told you could transfer the benefit and it's really important, because we're tacking about iraq and afghanistan veterans who have done multiple deployments. it is absolutely wrong. right now in the senate va committee, i hope they will not include this. in fact, i've talked to the chairman about this issue, and i'm very encouraged they won't include it. >> we put out a request for all the presidential candidates. we've heard from clinton and sanders. we've not heard from the republicans yet. is that i coincidence, because members of your party up high have been saying, look, this gi bill, this version of it was recruiting tool. it was very expensive. it served its purpose. we can't afford it any more. how can we afford so many of the things, how could we not find money elsewhere. how can we make their money a priority for cutting? what do you say? >> hey, chris, this is what i say. this is about not breaking our promises to those who are continuing to defend this nation, less than 1% of our
5:36 am
population defending the rest of our freedom. we're still at war. they're still in afghanistan. the president is sending them back to iraq. i say keep our promises. it is absolutely wrong. this should be the last place that we're looking. let's make sure that we ensure that those who have defended this nation and our freedom, that we don't break these promises. that's why i'm going to fight hard for this. i appreciate all the work that the veterans have done to bring light to this issue. and again, i meet many of my veterans in new hampshire, members of our guard who have done four and five deployments at this point. >> well, look, it's also not a coincidence that you're alone with me this morning. not a lot of senator whose are joined in this cause right now, and it is something that needs to get attention. do you think the bill can be saved? >> i do. and i think talked to the chairman of the veterans committee in the senate and i'm very encouraged by what i hear. again, that's why i'm here bringing attention to the issue, i think it's important to the
5:37 am
american people. we support our veterans, and we promised them this. many of them reenlisted. they had done multiple deployments. we've asked so much of them. and we should follow-through. >> senator kelly ayotte, coming out for the veterans, has a re-election coming her way. thanks. appreciate it. >> thanks, chris. >> alisyn. now a terrible inspiration story. she was one of the victims of the kalamazoo shooting, but now one 14-year-old girl is on the road to recovery and talking to cnn about what happened to her. that incredible story, ahead. we're good. okay... what if a million people download the new app? we're good. five million? good. we scale on demand. hybrid infrastructure, boom. ok. what if 30 million people download the app? we're not good. we're total heroes.
