i'm christine romans. >> i'm miguel marquez. good to see you. it is march 21st. happy spring. 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. more chaos and violence at donald trump rallies. his campaign staff vowing to beef up security after two more incidents of violence over the weekend. trump also hopes to put out a few political fires today. he meets with two dozen influential republican leaders in washington hoping to mend fences with the party establishment. he will speak to pro israel group that has been anything but pro trump. we have more from chris frates. >> reporter: good morning, miguel. later today, donald trump who has been criticized for not being a friend to israel will speak to a pro israel group. a number of rabbis and religious leaders are expected to protest by walking out. they believe trump is promoting
hate. trump dismissed similar charges in the past. those expected protests later today come after a wild weekend that found trump's campaign manager facing charges he man handled someone at an event. yesterday, trump defended his campaign manager. >> because security at the arena, the police were a little bit lax and he had signs, they had signs up in the area that were horrendous. i give him credit for having spirit. he wanted them to take down the horrible signs. >> reporter: this is not the first time his campaign manager corey lewandowski is facing charges. a journalist alleges that he grabbed her arm and threw her backwards. he denies the charges. this is all causing the republican chairman reince
priebus to weigh in saying he thinks law enforcement professionals, not campaign professionals should deal with protesters. and a man at a rally sucker punched and kicked a protester. that man was arrested for misdemeanor assault. miguel. chris, thanks for that. let's go live to washington and bring in correspondent colleen mccain nelson. it is hot on the campaign trail. donald trump today will have two big meetings. he will meet with apac and he will meet with republican offici officials. what does he have to do? does he have to woo these two groups? >> he has a lot of work to do in the meetings. you see the republican establishment is still very wary of donald trump.
they are still having closed-door meetings trying to figure out how to nominate someone not named donald trump. how they go to the convention and come up with another candidate and there is still a lot of republican officials hoping that donald trump won't get to 1,237 delegates. the magic number to give him the nomination. there is talk about a third party candidate. still talk about someone who is not running for president emerging as the republican nominee. he has work to do to win over the so-called republican establish. and heading into apac today, he also will face protests there. a lot of people are planning to walk out of his speech. he has drawn a lot of fire for saying he would be neutral in negotiating a mid east peace deal. will he stand by that pledge when he speaks to apac today?
you have to tune in and see what he says. >> i want to be a fly on the wall in the republican meeting before apac. for the first time on the campaign trail, donald trump always full of bluster, he is actually holding out the possibility he might not come up with the 1,237 to come up with the nomination. >> i'm a little bit short. one of the reasons is we had so many candidates. we started off with 17 candidates. it came down to finally down to three, frankly. you know, there are so many candidates. it is hard to get over that number. it is unfair in a way. because there are so many candidates and so many are grabbing delegates. now they're out. i think i will get over that number. i may get over that number fairly easily. arizona was unbelievable yesterday. utah, frankly, was unbelievable
the day before. i think we will get over that number. tremendous spirit about make america great again. that's the whole thing. we will make america great again. >> i will get over that number. i may get over that number. i may fall short of that number. what's going on here? it doesn't sound like he's going to make it. >> it is interesting. he's right on the bubble here. he needs 1,237 delegates. he is only about halfway there. so certainly there are fewer candidates now. the question is whether donald trump has a ceiling. can he get more than 50% of the delegates in the remaining contests with a couple candidates left in the race. it is not clear. it was interesting to hear him hedge and all of a sudden suggest it is unfair he needs to win 1,237 to win the nomination.
what is interesting, reince priebus, the republican chairman came on a few minutes later, and said that it is not unfair to require you get the majority of the delegates. these have always been the rule. minority of delegates will not speak for the majority of the party. he made it clear that just because you get close, that close isn't good enough. ultimately, someone needs to secure the majority to get the nomination. >> let's talk about it. it is interesting. let's talk about the democrats here. we have new sound from bernie sanders saying something he said many times. how this should not be a coronation because of him for hillary clinton. listen to him. >> when we began this campaign about ten months ago. the general feeling of the media and pundits is we were looking at a coronation.
there was an anointed candidate that would simply and quietly get the democratic nomination. ten months. ten months have come and gone. doesn't look to me like that's the case. >> it doesn't. it looks like a really wild and exciting election on both sides. an election. he's in it. he raised a lot of money. he spent a lot of money. where does he go? >> he heads west. he will be in contests that are favorable to him. you see utah coming up. arizona, washington. there are a lot of states coming up that bernie sanders may do well in. right now, he's about 300 delegates behind hillary clinton. she has a commanding lead in the race. he will make up ground in the west. the question is will it be enough ground and her lead looks like it may be insurmountable.
he could stay in the race for a long time. he has a lot of money. he could start to build momentum and chip away at her lead. he is making the argument that he's going to come into the convention with the momentum having won more of the recent states. with money, he can fight this all the way to the convention, perhaps, and make the argument that he's the guy with momentum. he's the guy who is winning states. it is worth noting that hillary clinton and bernie sanders will campaign in california later this week. california's primary not until june 7th. everyone is preparing to fight this for quite some time. >> a couple of delegates in california. >> that is an interesting fight on the republican side because of the way they break them down. bernie sanders has to win by a huge margin going forward. >> absolutely. >> thank you, colleen. let's talk about the money behind this race.
new this morning, campaign finance numbers. hillary clinton raking in the delegates. bernie sanders is raking in more cash. sanders received $43 million in contributions in february. clinton has $31 million in so-called cash on hand. sanders has $17 million. the three super tuesday primaries were expensive. sanders out spend by $10 million. both dropped tens of millions. on the republican side, ted cruz has $8 million cash on hand. nearly half of that can be spent on the general election. donald trump, john kasich have more than $1 million each. trump has been funding his own campaign. he loaned himself $24.3 million so far. he received contributions. $9.8 million in contributions. on the eve of tomorrow's western tuesday's races, all five presidential hopefuls will sit down with anderson cooper
and wolf blitzer. tonight 8:00 p.m. on cnn. >> logistical nightmare. history unfolding in havana, cuba. president obama has gone where no president has gone for 88 years. the president's historic trip is the latest in the sign of the new normal in relations with the countries. he meets with cuba's president and talk about human rights. we get more from cnn's jim acosta. >> reporter: christine and miguel, changes in the air in cuba as president obama prepares to spend the first full day on the island. he will lay a wreath at the memorial. he will hold a bilateral meeting with president raul castro. he toured old havana with the first family and stopped by the
old cathedral. he also talked to u.s. embassy where he talked about the significance of the trip. >> it's been nearly 90 years since a u.s. president has stepped foot in cuba. it is wonderful to be here. back in 1928, president coolidge came on a battleship. it took him three days to get here. it only took me three hours. >> reporter: tomorrow, the president will give a speech to the cuban people. he will talk about freedom of press and speech. the president will wind down his trip with a baseball game with the cuban national team and tampa bay rays. christine and miguel. thanks, jim. >> great he is there. the captured paris terror suspect revealing new information to investigators. were more attacks about to be launched? we are live with that next.

authorities in belgium say salah abdeslam, the lone surviving suspect in the paris massacre, is now talking to investigators and apparently planning a new attack before he was captured last week. officials are taking the claim of a new attack seriously. a cache of weapons was found leading up to his arrest. we have cnn's nima elbagir with the latest. who hid him? who helped him? how did he build a new network around him right in his old neighborhood where authorities are watching? >> reporter: absolutely. that really is at the heart of the concerns. the ability for him to hide out at what emerged as the nexus of the investigation into the paris attack. here's what the belgian interior minister had to say. >> i was surprised to be honest. after a certain moment, we thought as we got any signal
about his presence in brussels, we thought he was abroad. we didn't have proof, but that was the thoughts. when you see he was here. again, we don't know what he did in the four months. did he stay in brussels the whole time? >> reporter: it is highlighted really worrying gaps in terms of penetration into not only communities, but networks. given they now believe salah abdeslam was not able to only communicate and meet with the network with the paris attack, but rebuild a new one around him. the threat level here remains at three, christine, the second highest. interpol is warning european countries to remain vigilant at borders. they warn this network is linked to jihadis who could possibly be making their way into syria into europe as part of the broader
threat that isis is attempting to launch as they are coming under greater pressure in syria. >> nima, thank you. now comeback for the ages or the worst collapse of all time. the sweet 16 coming into focus in the ncaa men's basketball tournament. coy wire has the bleacher report next. or 36 years now. my dog girlfriend is 17 years old. she's been eating dog chow from her very first day and she can still chase squirrels. she can't catch them, but she can still chase them. after 17 years i'm still confident in feeding her dog chow because i see the high quality ingredients that go into it. i'm very proud to make dog chow right here in edmond, oklahoma. diarrhea. pain. it could be ibs-d. prescription xifaxan is a 2-week ibs-d treatment

mayhem at the donald trump ra rallies. the campaign staff promising to beef up security at the rallies. he hopes to put out political fires today. he meets with republican leaders in washington hoping to mend fences with the establishment and speak to a pro israel group. we get more from chris frates. >> reporter: good morning. later today, donald trump who has been criticized for not being a big enough friend of israel will give a speech to apac. some religious leaders will walk out because they believe trump is promoting hatred. trump dismissed similar charges in the past. those expected protests come after a wild weekend that found his campaign manager facing charges he man handled someone at a trump event and another
protester sucker punched. trump defended his campaign manager. >> because security at the arena, the police were a little bit lax and he had signs, they had signs up in the area that were horrendous. i give him credit for having spirit. he wanted to take down the signs. >> reporter: this is not the first time his campaign manager corey lewandowski. a reporter alleged he grabbed her by the arm and yanked her backwa backwards. he denied touching her at all and denies the charges. this is all cause for republican national committee chairman reince priebus weighing in on sunday. he thinks law enforcement professionals should deal with protesters. and a man at the tucson rally sucker punched and kicked a protester. that man was arrested for
misdemeanor assault. miguel. >> thank you, chris. let's go live to washington and bring in journal white house correspondent colleen mccain nelson. >> good morning. >> for me, it is all about the numbers here. mr. trump has said that well, maybe he'll make it. maybe he won't. maybe he might. he could. possibly. the chairman of the republican national convention reince priebus will be on new day today talked about the brokered convention. >> the minority doesn't rule for the majority. this is a delegate driven process. this is the first time in a long time people cared about delegates count. the majority of voting delegates in our party choose the nominee. >> that sounds a lot like he is saying there will be a contested convention. >> these are really interesting
comments from reince priebus. for a long time, he said a brokered convention was a far fetched possibility. now he is saying the opposite and suggested a contested convention is a possibility. donald trump is hedging a bit on whether he can get to the magic number of 1,237. he said if i can get close, that should be good enough. i should get the nomination if i don't hit the nomination. it is interesting to hear reince priebus say no, the minority will not speak for the majority. you need the majority of delegates. otherwise, you may not get the nomination. it is also worth noting he went on to say he doesn't expect someone who is not running for president to not get the nomination. he thinks ultimately the republican nominee will be donald trump, ted cruz or john kasich. he didn't say if donald trump
gets close, that is good enough. he should automatically be the nominee. >> trump will outline his middle east policy. he will talk to republican leaders. making his case for why he is their guy. all this happening as there were the incidents of violence again at a trump gathering. protesters blocking a road to a big trump rally. you had a sucker punch seen around the world. donald trump says this about the violence at the events. >> these are professional agitators. someone who roped the block so people have to wait hours to get in, i think that is fair. there should be blame there too. when signs are lifted up with tremendous profanity on them. the worst profanity and you have television cameras all over the place and people see these signs, i think maybe those
people have some blame. >> you had one guy in the white shirt arrested on misdemeanor assault charge for hitting a guy. does this help or hurt donald trump here? there's so much energy in the events, frankly. i don't know. does it help him or hurt him? >> that's a great question. any other candidate, you would think it would hurt them. so far, it has not stopped donald trump from winning primaries and caucuses. he continues to do well with his base. one could question if this will help him in a general election if he merging as republican nominee. he is sticking to his guns. he continues to refuse to condemn actions of his supporters who have been violent. he continues to shift the blame and say protesters are bad dudes and protesters should be called out.
he talked about saying security was too lax. that was part of the problem. although he says he doesn't condone violence, he doesn't go so far to condemn the people who have thrown the punches and kicked the protesters. he doesn't say what that guy did was wrong. >> this weekend, he uses these as another reason to blame the media for not blaming the protesters. >> exactly. he says why isn't the media calling out those who protest and he certainly is a fan of blaming the media. he continues to do that. as you saw, his campaign manager also was accused of laying hands on another protester. although there was video where it appeared the campaign manager grabbed the protester by the collar. trump says that didn't happen. >> here is the anti-establish
candidate going before the establishment. >> he has a steep hill to climb with the republican establishment. a lot are in denial phase as he gets closer to the nomination. you know, chris christie came out and endorsed trump a few weeks ago. a few members of the congress endorsed trump. the rest is not rallying to his cause. they are still making plans to try to figure out how to stop him. making plans for super pacs to spend millions to say anybody but trump. at this point, he needs to do a lot of work to convince he would actually be a standard bearer for the republican party and represent conservative values. at this point, republican officials remain dubious. >> colleen, we expect you to be in that meeting and report back to us tomorrow. thank you very much. good to see you.
>> thank you. on the eve of tomorrow's western tuesday races. all five presidential hopefuls sit down with anderson cooper and wolf blitzer at 8:00 p.m. tonight on cnn. >> and reince priebus is on "new day." >> and john kasich. history unfolding in havana. president obama going where no sitting president has gone for 88 years. arriving in cuba's capital sunday. the most prominent sign of the new normal. he meets with cuba's president and raise concerns about human rights in his speech. let's get more from jim acosta. >> reporter: christine and miguel, changes in the air as president obama prepares to spend his first full day on the island. he will lay a wreath at the memorial remembering the cuban revolutionary. he will hold a bilateral meeting
with president raul castro. as for last night, the president toured old havana with the first family and stopped bit old cathedral. he talked about the significance of the trip with the embassy. >> it has been nearly 90 years since a u.s. president stepped foot in cuba. it is wonderful to be here. back in 1928, president coolidge came on a battleship. it took him three days to get here. it only took me three hours. >> reporter: tomorrow, the president will give a speech to the cuban people. the white house says he will talk about expanding human rights for cuban people and talking about freedom of the press and speech and assembly. he will wind down the trip with a baseball game with the tampa bay rays and cuban national team. >> the u.s. hotel chain will operate in cuba for the first time in 60 years.

authorities in belgium say salah abdeslam, the lone surviving suspect in the paris massacre is talking to investigators and planning a new attack before being captured last week. officials are taking the claims of new attack seriously. a cache of heavy weapons was found. we have nima elbagir live with the latest and some breaking news on the investigation. >> reporter: yes, authorities here have now released identity of a man they believed to be a key conspirator in the paris attacks. we knew him by his alias at the time. a cell phone intercept had him giving instructions to the paris
attack ringleader. they identified him as nagim. they released his identity. as they intensify his manhunt, they are asking the belgian public to help them. this is against the back drop of the revolutions of the broader network surrounded by salah abdeslam to launch new attacks here in brussels. this is a race against time for authorities, miguel, as they pursue the remaining conspirators and ward off fears of the new attack. >> amazing the belgian authorities were not able to find him quickly and clearly i would hope they are all over that neighborhood and all over that town at this point. >> reporter: this really has been one of the criticisms of the belgian authorities.
they repeatedly failed to get penetration into the communities. specifically molenbeek. the site of the first raid after the paris attacks. for him to be found a street away from his childhood home gives you a sense of really how little in the way of human in l intelligence the authorities have had here. with the new name released to the public, they are clearly trying to amass as much public support for the fight to really fend off potential incidents like salah abdeslam in the future where the community around them isn't giving up the information needed. miguel. >> nima, thank you. excellent reporting. let's see what is coming up on "new day." chris cuomo joins us from havana, cuba. >> lucky guy, chris cuomo. i'm sorry. were we interrupting you there? >> not at all. i'm getting the newspapers ready for you.

obama was coming here. like when the pope came and people knew for weeks. there was some discouragement of people coming in. we will give you the context. the history made with president obama coming here and the plus and minus on that. it was an unpopular mission back home in the united states. it was not met with the fanfare here that some expected. what progress can be made? we will take you through the different channels. it is exciting to be here on a day many thought would never come. >> never. >> fascinating. >> thanks, chris. the dow jones industrial average on the six-day winning streak. can we make it to seven? we will get an early start on your money next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
