invaded the square. >> a suicide bomber targeted a pakistani park. >> many of the victims are women and children. this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning, everyone. welcome to "new day". it is monday, march 28th, 2016. 6:00 in the east. chris is off. don lemon is joining us. five candidates swooping down on the next big battleground. donald trump laying out some of his kopcontroversial plan. and the war of words with ted cruz continues. a big weekend for bernie sanders. the vermont senator with landslide victories in alaska,
hawaii, and washington state. but can he hope to make a serious dent in hillary clinton's still commanding democratic lead? we have the race for the white house covered the only way cnn can. good morning, phil. >> reporter: good morning, don. the focus of the republican party should be here. i say should because there's a couple other things they are actually focused o. first and foremost the tif between ted cruz and their donald trump's wives. it concerns a lot of people in the republican party.
>> we'll pick up. we have some technology issues there. we'll get back to phil in a moment. bernie sanders is gaining momentum fresh off a weekend sweep over hillary clinton. he said he's got a real shot to win the crucial new york primary. brianna keilar is live in washington, d.c. happy monday to you, brianna. >> good morning, michaela. this was a very big weekend for bernie sanders with big lopsided wins in alaska, hawaii and washington state, which was of course the big one. now bernie sanders is saying he wants hillary clinton to debate him her adopted home state of new york. it will have its primary april 19th. he wants to challenge her there
in a state that certainly the clinton campaign is hoping will stay in their box and is expecting that it will. but certainly that is something that he is trying to create some expectations for that perhaps he can challenge her there after these spade of wins. here's what he said. >> every vote is pivotal. we are now winning in state after state. the latino vote, we're doing better now that we're out of the south with the african-american vote. we are doing extraordinarily well with young people. and we are -- we think we do have is a path toward victory. >> but take a look at the delegate count right now. even after these pledge delegates that have been awarded in these early contests. hillary clinton still with a tremendous lead there. so this would be a difficult feat for bernie sanders to achieve. what we see next is all eyes will return to wisconsin. it is having its primary next week.
this is a state that could favor bernie sanders. you see a lot of college students there. this is more of a white state than some of these others we have seen. i'll tell you, talking to clinton aids, they say wisconsin probably favors bernie sanders. that's a big deal. that tells you they are trying to avoid perhaps a michigan style upset. there were expectations she was going to win and bernie sanders eeked out the win. and now phil matting ton. stop pretending you can't hear us. >> you can't get rid of me. even if it looks hike i'm trying to ignore you at one point or another. wisconsin is the next crucial state. it is riled by two other things going on, the fight between ted cruz and donald trump and their wives and donald trump's
in-depth look of foreign policy. >> i don't think america is a safe place for americans, if you want to know the truth. >> the day after laying out his controversial policy world view and a lengthy interview with "the new york times" he calls in traditional u.s. alliances, including nato, describing the approach as not isolationist but america first. he said if elected, he might stop buying saudi oil unless they commit ground troops to fight isis. >> he started it. i didn't start it. >> attacking spouses and children is off-limits. it has no place in politics. >> this has he and rival ted cruz ramp up the war of words over their wives. cruz slamming trump for hitting below the belt. >> he sends tweets attacking my wife, attacking heidi. it is appropriate, wrong. it is frankly disgusting.
>> the front-runner said he targeted his wife first. >> don't forget, i call him lying ted. i've known a lot tougher people over the years in business, but i have never known anyone who lies like ted cruz. >> he threatens to spill the beans on heidi. >> there are things about heidi that i don't want to talk about. >> cruz calling it a deliberate distraction, coming down hard on a salacious story in the "national enquirer", which earlier this month endorsed trump. >> he's pushing these attacks. he has been pushing them for many, many months online. they are complete made-up lies. they're garbage. >> trump blasting cruz for courting additional delegates, issuing this threat on twitter. "just to show how unfair republican primary politics can be, i won the state of louisiana
and get less delegates than cruz. lawsuit coming." that last tweet has most gop operatives scratching their heads, shaking their heads, guys. while he won louisiana, they split delegates, 18 apiece. there were 10 that were going elsewhere. 5 to marco rubio. ted cruz went in and more or less worked to get the 10. there's nothing illegal about that. no one is sure what the basis for the lawsuit is. ted cruz not afraid to throw a little jab. saying maybe your time is better spent reading rules than hate tweets. >> thanks for all that material. you set us perfectly up for our panel. newly minted cnn political analyst david gregory. you have arrived, my friend. >> woo-hoo!
how does it feel, mr. gregory. >> thanks for having me. i'm very happy to be part of it. >> great to have you along with our other esteemed guest. we have senior politics editor for the daily beast kucinich. >> the 100-minute-long interview in which he basically spelled out his thoughts on foreign policy. i will read what seems to be the premise of his foreign policy. he said i'm not an isolationist. but i am america first. i like the expression. we will not be ripped off anymore. we will be friendly with everybody. but we're not going to be were taken advantage of by anybody. david, how do you define the trump doctrine? >> well, we have actually seen it before. it goes back to parts of the 19th century. it is isolationist foreign policy, one in which he thinks
america is getting ripped off in the international order. he does not believe in the liberal world order that was responsible for beating nazi germany and winning the cold war. he thinks he can create new details more favorable to the united states economically. a lot of his world view is not very well defined, including how he would approach some of these very difficult decisions. he has been cozy in his respect for authorityism whether it is in china or other parts of the world, even russia. there is a lot here that is actually recognizable. if you go back a lot some of the reading i've done on this, you look at his views on international trade, he wants new deals that would better advantage the united states. this is something ross perot said way back in 1992. so you understand some of the appeal with all of his supporters around the country. >> he said it's not
isolationist. he doesn't believe our own interests. he said we are not being reimbursed for our protection. saudi arabia, the amount of money they have is phenomenal. we take monetary hits on protecting countries. without us, saudi arabia wouldn't exist for very long. saudi arabia would not exist without america's protection. >> well, maybe not. he actually may be right about that. we see how unstable things are in the middle east and how these pro-american regimes are tenuous. it's hard to say what might happen without a force for good and the world. i want to go back to what you were saying and david is saying. he is embracing the phrase america first, which harkens back to charles lindbergh before world war ii. david is absolutely right. this is a return to a pre-world war ii mentality.
and even pregreat depression in terms of grade. i think if you're a trump supporter you say, look, the world has changed. why should we operate under a pair the dime created to contain the soviet union and before that to stop nazi germany. but i think if you're not a trump supporter you look at this and say, hey, you know what, history is repeating itself. we will make the same mistakes we made 50 or 60 years ago. >> he doesn't believe in the in disexpensable world in influencing international events. i believes the united states should be the most important in getting the kinds of deals we want. deals very loosely defined. not in using influence to effect world events. >> he seems to be treating this whole thing as he would a real estate deal. but the bottom line is, if you
walk away from some of these decades old trade deals and, you know, various other packs across the world, it's not the same as not getting the air rights you want in manhattan. people don't die. there aren't all of these other global repercussions because donald trump doesn't get to build a building that high. he walks away from some of these carefully crafted diplomatic packs. it is puzzling really. he seems to be applying standards that he did very well in real estate. but i don't know that that would work when it comes to diplomacy. >> matt, very quickly, i want to ask you about this war of the wives where donald trump and ted cruz keep saying things about each other's wives. and donald trump has said that basically -- he has suggested there might be some story, some hidden story, some beans to be spilled about heidi cruz.
what's he doing? >> well, i think this is what donald trump does. i don't think he was necessarily behind some of the more sa labors rumors we have seen. but clearly he has said he will spill the beans. and what does that mean? does that mean talking about her time at goldman sachs? people know she is an executive at goldman sachs. what does that mean? look, i think this is what donald trump does. i don't think there's any there there. ted cruz is a very unlikable person. but i don't think there are all of these skeletons in the closet. he changes the subject. he doesn't want to talk about things that he is not comfortable with. he wants the race to be about this jump >> i'm not going to talk about it by talking about it is basically what happened. >> panel, thank you very much. great to see all of you. tomorrow night, three republican candidates will will take part
in a cnn town hall in wisconsin. this is one week before the primary. tuesday night, 8:00 p.m. eastern on cnn. death toll rising in brussels terror attacks as authorities try to break down a complex web of terror activity. three people are under arrest after more than a dozen raids over the weekend with two key terror suspects still on the loose. clarissa ward has the very latest from brussels today. clarissa. >> reporter: that's right, michaela. it has been a busy weekend for authorities here. 13 raids, 9 people detained. some of them have been released. we are learning today three people are being charged with -- let me get the exact charge for you. participation in the activities of a terrorist group. those are some pretty serious charges. we don't know yet if they are related specifically to the paris or brussels attack. the main focus appears to be a
man that belgian authorities are only referring to as fizalc. we don't know specifically yet what his role was. the death toll has risen to 35. we know that there are four americans among the dead. only two of whom have been identified. they are justin and stephanie shults of tennessee. they were taking her mother who was flying out of belgium that day. meanwhile, here things were quite tense. there was a big memorial going on behind him marched upon by 300 far right-wing nationalists. protesters were chanting anti-immigrant chants. it became very tense. police had to be brought in. riot police. water cannons were even used a
bit. and the police did manage to push them back slowly and methodically. but not before there were some scuffles in the group. nasty slogans being chanted. people here lighting candles feeling intimidated. this is still a city on edge. alisyn. >> you witnessed all that yesterday. we will have many more questions for you. we'll be back to you quickly. >> taliban splinter group claiming responsibility behind an easter bomb attack. cnn's new delhi bureau chief tracking developments live from new delhi. ravi. >> reporter: 69 people confirmed dead.
300 injured. what possibly makes it even worse is the suicide attack took place sunday evening in pakistan. it targeted children. it took place near a playground and amusement park. many of the people that were killed were young women and children. the group is a splinter group from the pakistani taliban. they said they were targeting christians and they said it was a message to the prime minister who was from that city, lahore, a message that they can attack any time, anywhere, including his hometown. and he came up with a strong statement one hour ago. he said we must take this war to the doors of terrorist outfits. god willing, we will wipe them out. strong statement from the pakistani government. they will be waiting and watching to see what happens next. >> ravi, thank you very much.
meantime, college basketball's final four is set. how are your brackets? >> i don't know. i always ask coy wire. >> coy, i think my brackets are pretty much done. what's going on? what day is it? >> i am way down at the bottom. but march madness, guys, lived up to the hype. part of that was syracuse. they are the first ever 10 seed to make the final four. what a win over number one virginia. they came out against virginia and five three-pointers in the first half. but uva would be ahead by 16 points at one point in the second half. syracuse turns up the heat. defensively, they forced six turnovers in the second half. they go on a run, outscore 29-8 over the last 9:30. malachi richardson leading the way with a career-high 23 for the cavs. down by three. virginia has one chance to tie it with 12 seconds remaining.
it wouldn't go. syracuse wins 68-62 in a shocker. they're going to take on north carolina. they beat notre dame to remain the only number one seed to make the final four. neither team led by more than six in the first half. unc and brice johnson were too much. johnson had a huge game. 25 points, 12 rebounds. tar heels win 88-74 and advantage to the final four for an ncaa record 19th time. there it is, guys. it's all set. the final four saturday night. all of it is going to be on our sister channel tbs. the first game villanova and oklahoma, each two seeds, knocking off number ones in their region to make it to the show. now an acc clash, syracuse verse is us north carolina. unc won both of those. we'll see is how it turns out. the winners go on to the national championship, monday
night, april 4th, on tbs. >> i'm glad you're the sports guy. michaela is number three. alisyn is number five. yours truly is number nine. and coy wire is, oh, 21. >> i've got to go. i've got to go, guys. got to get out of here. >> thanks so much. the top story now, the investigation into the brussels terror attacks. are authorities any closer to capturing the two suspects who escaped after last week's bombings? we have brand-new bombings. we will show you one of the suspected terrorists. if i want to go up... hello. or if i want to go down... no. but then if i want to come back again... yes. it's perfect. my favorite part is to be able to lift your legs up a little bit and it feels like i'm just cradled. (vo) change your sleep, change your life, change to tempur-pedic. what if 30,000 people download the new app? we're good.
we are getting our first look at the brussels airport bombing suspects, the ones on the run for nearly a week. this airport security video we are about to show you, the man in the light colored jacket and hat. this is the first time you have seen moving video of him. also, new raids and arrests in europe over the weekend in connection to the brussels and paris attacks.
authorities searching for at least eight suspects they believe have links to the isis attacks. let's bring back clarissa ward and ryan keith. clarissa, what have authorities released beyond that moving video of that suspect's identity? >> so far we don't know anything about his identity. there is certainly a lot of speculation that possibly this man whose image we are familiar with in the light jacket and hat, some people are speculating perhaps this could be a man only being named as faycal c.
authorities have not confirmed in any way, shape, or form, faycal c. is the man in the light jacket. perhaps he could be the second metro bomber. this is certainly a common theme we are seeing here. authorities keeping tight lipped as to the details of this investigation because it is ongoing. so far the main suspect that people are talking about is the man faycal c. who is facing heavy charges, alisyn. >> we have learned a lot the past week about brussels, cultural issues that stimy investigators there. for instance, why would they wait a week to release this moving video? that could possibly help capture him. >> that's correct. it's all a bit of a mystery how some of the brussels authorities
operate. it turns out that some of the people arrested at the very least socialized there. it would be highly unlikely if they weren't involved in other activities. all we can do is speculate why there are delays in the images. we know authorities are very overstretched. we do know these cells tend to operate quite closely. the people who survived the paris attacks went on to do other things. it is possible they will go on to have other attacks in the future. >> what did you witness in the square there that got out of control? >> it was so surprising. it seemed to come out of nowhere. subdued atmosphere behind me.
people were lighting candles and laying flowers. then anti-immigrant, soccer chants. appeared out of nowhere. they marched on the square. we saw them doing nazi salutes. some trampled on the flowers laid out to commemorate the dead. then things became extremely tense. we saw scuffles between the people who were here commemorating the dead and those ultra right wing men who marched on the square. the police quickly formed a perimeter and started to push them back. at one stage, even using a water cannon to contain the situation, to prevent tensions from getting any higher. this is exactly what belgian authorities had wanted to avoid. this is why they had asked people not to come out and march today. not because there was any specific threat to the march but
because they don't want vital police resources. you just heard how stretched thin they are. they don't want the police resources diverted having to man things like yesterday when there is a massive manhunt under way. >> thanks so much for all the information. we will monitor the situation and check back with you. our chris cuomo returns to paris to investigate the terror that struck there five months ago. you can see his special report wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. don. alisyn, thank you. two brothers linked to the paris terror attacks partying is and smoking pot months before their deadly plot. now friends are speaking on out. a cnn exclusive you don't want to miss. that's next. it. ♪ those who have served our nation have earned the very best service in return. ♪

partying. they gambled, and did drugs months before the massacre. an interesting and intriguing look. >> yeah. thanks so much, michaela. is it is a story of radicalization at lightning speed. two friends of this group asking how the people they knew could have changed from carefree youth one minute to killers the next. this was life before isis. sala abdeslam and his brother brahim partying at a nightclub in brussels. it is february 8th, 2015. just months later, brahim would blow himself up. two friends shot the video in the club. they talked to cnn on the condition we hide their
identities. >> translator: salah took care of himself. he have funny, you could have a laugh with. a bit of a ladies man. it wasn't unusual for him to have a drink or two. but he didn't go out and get drunk. >> translator: brahim was more intelligent and better behaved. >> they first began hanging out with the abdeslam brothers at this bar. it was shut following a police raid. they came here to drink, play cards, smoke marijuana and watch their favorite football team, real madrid, may on the tv. things could get boisterous. here brahim cheers on drunken antics. >> translator: i used to go there after work to have a drink, have a laugh with friends, play cards. anything that involves betting with money really.
basically you felt at home among family. >> also here they were detained after driving salah back from the attacks. the friends say they were duped. >> translator: i was with hamza. he said his car had broken down and to come pick him up. >> after this they stopped drinking and became more religious. >> translator: they prayed more. at the mosque on fridays. otherwise, it was at home. >> praying and plotting. no one, even their closest friends, know why the abdeslam brothers changed so much so quickly. >> translator: brahim got with everyone. he didn't have any problems with black, white, and whatever race
or religion. >> he didn't until this. well, this shows important clues about the size of the terror network. as more arrests are being made and links between what happened in paris and in brussels. six people were was implicated in the paris attacks. a number of them under arrest. one still remain at large. two people were suicide bombers. back to you. >> nina, fascinating interviews. thank you for bringing those to us. >> back here at home, bernie sanders scoring big out west. three for three in this weekend's contests. can he catch up in the delegate count? our panel discusses that possibility next. boards with a single click. then simply select the best candidates from one easy to review list. you put up one post and the next day you have all these candidates. makes my job a lot easier.

hard for sanders to solve. we're joined by david gregory and the daily beast jackie cue kinnick and political anchor on the time warner cable news, errol lewis. we will start with the landslide win. western saturday. each of the three caucuses. you see the numbers on saturday. he won by big. 81%. >> huge lead. >> huge. >> how significant, errol, are these wins? does he actually have momentum for his campaign to begin a real assault on the delegate leads. >> if he wanted to tell his followers and the world at large, i have a path to victory, he needed something like this. and he got it. we give credit for that. unfortunately he is heading into a pretty tough series of primaries where there are really only three caucuses left.
that's where he does really well. that is your activist base that comes out. he has wyoming, virgin islands and guam. that's not a lot of delegates. he needs a lot more points on the board for sure. >> let's look at what's up for tpwrabs in t grabs in wisconsin. 86 delegates. and new york. he might be trying to give clinton a run for her home in her adopted home state of new york. then he beats her and closes the gap. >> well, right. but the problem still is for bernie sanders, african-american voters. there has been a correlation with the black vote and whether he can win or not. wisconsin i'm guessing is about the same. it's also brianna keilar mentioned earlier. it's white. a lot of college kids.
it's fertile ground. turning to new york, you have a different dynamic. you have to imagine if the clinton campaign will fight to win, where hillary clinton has won statewide and her campaign is there. they hope to embarrass her. she needs a decisive win in order to avoid that. >> he wants to debate on the home turf here in new york. he talked about it on "meet the press" this weekend. let's listen to it. >> i would hope very much that as we go into new york state, secretary clinton's home state, that we will have a debate, new york city, upstate, wrf, on the important issues facing new york. >> are you worried she won't debate you anymore? >> yeah, i do have a little concern about that. is that likely to happen? could it change things for bernie sanders?
it has been a violent month for terror attacks around the globe. here to examine some of the threats, bobby gosh. good to see you. we haven't seen you in some time. boy, there's a lot of things happening. that's where we should start. we are seeing an uptick in the terror plots that have played out. we look at what happened in pakistan, syria, iraq, ivory coast, belgium. it is incredible. turkey, iraq, all of these places. what is going on globally. >> you have different groups operating with slightly different motivations. but what they have in common, boca haram in nye yeigerinigeri what they have is this deadly ideology. with the attacks in belgium this month, there have been hundreds, hundreds of terrorist attacks
all over the world. many are small. many are taking place in countries where we have become so used to there being terrorist attacks we don't pay close attention. so when they happen in iraq and syria, it just gets added to the general chaos that is there. there are hundreds of people, the vast majority are muslims. >> with belgium happening, we know there's been an increase in the number of dragnets, arrests and raids daily. they are linking more and more people to the plots both in belgium and in paris. >> yeah. >> obviously all of europe is facing a threat. all of europes it has a problem. what needs to happen? >> well, there has been talk this is the new normal. i would push back against that. it is certainly the new normal for european security agencies.
since paris happened, they pick up people in brussels. since brussels happened, they arrested people in the netherlands, germany. european police forces have to get much better working with each other. as we know, people are travel across europe easily. the terror cells don't have to have heavy equipment to move around. they move around quickly. we have said this so many times. that game is not working. >> a place where violence has become a new normal as well. syria. this is a little bit of hope, a glimmer of victory, taking back palmyra. what does this tell you about the situation in syria? >> well, the trouble there is it's one set of bad guys against another set of bad guys. you don't know who to root for. it is a big goal for isis.
that is something to be -- you talk comfort from that as they have been dealt a big blow. they are hardly responsible for 10 times more deaths than isis. it is assad telling the world, i'm the only one that can get isis. >> in pakistan, we saw a terrorizing act there. christians killed apt an easter gathering. an offshoot of the pakistani taliban. explain the context, if there is any. >> it is not a question of why now. this is the most spectacular attack in a number of attacks. the pakistani groups have been mounting smaller attacks for years now. certainly the past couple of years. this one was a real big one. it is not typical to target a large group of christians. if you look at the history of
the taliban, they are happy to kill almost anybody. this one was easter. they were clearly targeting christians. that's slightly different from their usual modus operandi. >> this is troubling. two young girls, suicide bombers, were caught before they could detonate. they claimed they were of the school girls kidnapped forced to do a suicide mission. how likely is that? >> it's not unlikely. the captors have had two years. they have been in captivity two years. a lot can happen in two years. you can be brainwashed, tortu d tortured, forced to do these. this is almost part of their signature.
some of the parents have been sent to look at these girls to confirm. >> thanks for watching all of this and walking us through it. over to you. donald trump revealing his foreign policy plans. the broad strokes on america's first and how everyone else will pay. we hear from trump and cruz camps on this and so much more next. their business becomes our business. that's why we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. here, there, everywhere. united states postal service priority:you
war. >> this has to be a coordinated effort. >> we will carpet bomb them into owe bolivian. >> i understand what's going on around the world far better than the politicians do. >> he sends tweets attacking my wife, attacking heidi. >> i didn't start this. he did. >> i would certainly like to see a debate in new york state. >> two key terror suspects still on the loose. >> new raids. >> hundreds of protesters chanting anti immigrant slow gans. >> the ancient city of palmyra under control of the government. >> it is symbolic and strategic gain for the syrian army. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and michaela pereira. good morning. welcome back to "new day". chris is off today. don lemon joins us in studio. we'll get you more coffee.
the presidential candidates making their way to the midwest. the war of wives continues. and of course the war on terror dominating the conversation on the republican side. donald trump threatening once again to, quote, spill the beans on heidi cruz, whatever that means, and outlining his america first plan. >> on the democratic side, bernie sanders coming off a weekend trifecta by winning in hawa hawaii, alaska and washington state. can he close the gap and win the nomination? good morning, phil. good morning, don. this is where the republican field is supposed to be focused, wisconsin. one week from tomorrow, 42 delegates at stake. a crucial stake.
there are a couple other things people are focused on. the battle with the wives. a potential lawsuit. and donald trump's foreign policy. >> i don't think america is a safe place for americans, if you want to know the truth. >> donald trump claiming americans are unsafe. a day after laying out his world view and lengthy interview with "the new york times" he calls into questions alliances, including nato. including nato, describing the approach as not isolationist but america first. he said if elected, he might stop buying saudi oil unless they commit ground troops to fight isis. >> he started it. i didn't start it. >> attacking spouses and children is off-limits. it has no place in politics. >> this has he and rival ted cruz ramp up the war of words over their wives. cruz slamming trump for hitting below the belt.
>> he sends tweets attacking my wife, attacking heidi. it is inappropriate, wrong. it is frankly disgusting. >> the front-runner said he targeted his wife first. >> don't forget, i call him lying ted. i've known a lot tougher people over the years in business, but i have never known anyone who lies like ted cruz. >> he threatens to spill the beans on heidi. >> there are things about heidi that i don't want to talk about. >> cruz calling it a deliberate distraction, coming down hard on a salacious story in the "national enquirer", which earlier this month endorsed trump. >> he's pushing these attacks. he has been pushing them for many, many months online. they are complete made-up lies. they're garbage. >> trump blasting cruz for courting additional delegates, issuing this threat on twitter.
"just to show how unfair republican primary politics can be, i won the state of louisiana and get less delegates than cruz. lawsuit coming." that last tweet has most gop operatives scratching their heads, shaking their heads, guys. what really happened here is donald trump had a slight lead. while he won louisiana, they split delegates, 18 apiece. there were 10 that were going elsewhere. 5 to marco rubio. ted cruz went in and more or less worked to get the 10. it hraobgts like he has them. there's nothing illegal about that. ted cruz not afraid to throw a little jab. saying maybe your time is better spent reading rules than hate tweets. alisyn. >> thank you for explaining that
procedure. that digestible. thanks for that. meanwhile, no letup in the ted cruz/donald trump feud. joining us now to talk about this is trump senior adviser is sarah huckabee sanders. good morning, sarah. >> good morning, alisyn. >> he had this stunning 100-minute interview with "the new york times" they published the entire transcript, which we have read. and he said a lot of things that people consider bombshells in there. let's start with what he was saying about he would be willing, it sounds like, to allow places like japan and south korea to develop nuclear weapons so that the u.s. doesn't have to keep supporting them. are we understanding that right? >> you know, i think the main thing here and across the board with donald trump's foreign policy has been extremely consistent. whether we're talking about immigration, trade, or whether we're talking specifically about
foreign policy. donald trump's overarching theme has been to put america first. he helps keep our country safe, borders secure. that is his biggest focus. i think we see that in every bit of foreign policy discussion he has had. i think we will continue to see that foreign policy develop and grow as he talks with and meets with that group of leaders on a weekly basis. >> how does it keep the u.s. safe if more countries get nuclear weapons? >> i think the big thing is we need some other countries to get were skin in the game. for far too long, obama administration let everybody else walk free while america carries the burden for keeping the entire world safe. not just america safe but the entire world safe. >> you mean nuclear skin in the game? you mean let other countries get nuclear skin in the game? that has been the impression by
keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of other countries, that is what keeps the u.s. safe? >> i don't think necessarily advocating we put nuclear bombs in the hands of everybody, the theme and the point is, we need to look at all options and we need to do, number and our top priority and top focus time and time again has to be to put americans first and keep americans safe. clearly what the past administration and obama administration has done and what hillary clinton did as secretary of state didn't do that. so we need to look at new things that, again, keep america safe and keep our country safe. >> i want to ask about this war of the wives between donald trump and ted cruz. they talked about it again this weekend. here's what donald trump said about heidi cruz yesterday. >> well, there are things about heidi that i don't want to talk
about. i'm not going to talk about them. you can look, but i wouldn't talk about them. >> sarah, what is he referring to? >> you know, i don't know the specifics on that. i know he's getting a lot of heat right now for allegedly pushing the "national enquirer" story when it's very well documented this is a story that has been pushed for at least over six months by rubio allies. that is a question that should go to them on the details of that. and as far as what else he may be talking about there, that's not something i know of at this point. what i do know is you're continually hearing attacks on donald trump on his war against women. as a mother, as a wife, the things that keep me up at night aren't whether or not some politician hurt my feelings. it is are they going to keep my kids safe. they are going to come home and be safe. they're not going to be hurt or
atlantaed. if they manage to go on and graduate from high school, they're going to be able to get a job. they will not be so burdened by this government, they can't succeed. those are the questions that keep most women up at night. not this back and forth and not whether or not somebody's feelings not hurt. >> but as his senior adviser, when donald trump says he's going to spill the beans on heidi cruz, would you be comfortable with that? >> you know, again, my focus here is whether or not he's going to do those things. he has proven time and time again he's going to be a tough leader. donald trump is a guy that has been hit with $67 million in attack ads. even seems to leave that out. where is the outcry over that? he has been attacked relentlessly and ruthlessly and far more than anybody in the race on both sides. nobody is talking about that. and i think it's unfair to say he can't respond, he can't hit back when he is continually is
and repeatedly being attacked on both sides of the aisle. >> should a candidate's spouse be off-limits? i wonder if you worry whether this will affect his standing amongst women. he has 74% unfavorable among women. do you worry if this goes on about spouse's wives, it will tkpwho lower? >> i don't. it didn't start with donald trump. his wife was attacked. he's defending himself and his wife. i think it goes back to the question, when women step into the ballot box and think about what keeps them up at night, it's not whether or not somebody hurt their feels. it is whether or not somebody is going to keep their kids safe,
whether or not their children will be able to go on and succeed in america. and i think donald trump is the clear winner when you start asking yourself those questions. i don't think anybody thinks hillary clinton certainly is going to do a better job at any of those things than donald trump. he is one of the toughest guys in the race. that's what women are looking for. when it comes time to check a box or pull the leave, they will choose donald trump because that's what keeps them up at night. >> thanks for your take. >> thanks, alisyn. >> we will talk about all of these many issues. this is one week before the primary there. the gop town hall tuesday night, 8:00 p.m. eastern, right here on cnn. tune in. michaela. all right. democratic race. bernie sanders riding a wave of momentum following a three were-state western sweep over hillary clinton this weekend. wisconsin is the next big prize. sanders is setting his sights on
new york. saying he has what it takes to beat clinton in her adopted home turf. brianna keilar has more. >> this was a very big weekend for bernie sanders particularly because of the lopsided nature of these win in the three western states. he is calling for a debate against hillary clinton in new york state. the dnc has debates in april and may as to be determined. there is nothing scheduled before new york. the clinton campaign has been reticent to do more in these debates. what bernie sanders is hoping to do is ride the momentum not only of this weekend but other states that are favorable towards him into perhaps -- it would be a very stunning win in new york. certainly trying to give hillary clinton a run for her money. here's what he said. >> every vote is pivotal. we are winning in state after
state. the latino vote. we're doing better now that we're on out of the south with the african-american vote. we are doing extraordinarily well with young people. and we think we have a path toward victory. >> even with these were wins over the weekend and perhaps more wins coming bernie sanders way, the math you saw really favors hillary clinton at this point. she's more than 200 in terms of pledge delegates. we're talking about new york and bernie sanders having his eye on that. that's april 19th. the next big thing we're watching is wisconsin, april 5th of next week. they say you know what, wisconsin probably favors bernie sanders. they are playing that expectations game. saying bernie sanders may win there. trying to avoid an upset which is a neighbor of course of this state coming up. >> good stuff. brianna keilar in washington.
thank you, brianna. breaking news to tell you about. the new airport security video just released showing a brussels airport bombing suspect who is still on the run. it is the first moving image we have seen of the suspect in the light colored jacket and hat. it comes more than a dozen weekend raids. three people now under arrest in the growing man hunt. what list sa ward has the very latest from brussels this morning. clarissa, good morning to yous. >> good morning, don. authorities have not been giving any information why they are releasing this video now. this is the first time we are seeing moving images of the third airport bomber. we have seen the still paragraph many times of him in the light jacket with the glasses and the hat. he of course had the largest amount of most powerful
explosives that did not detonate. it calls into question whether they have been successful in identifying them. there have been a number of raids. three people are being charged today with participation in terrorist activities. and over the weekend we learned that belgian authorities arrested a man on thursday who they are only identifying as faycal c. reportedly being charged with terrorist, murder, attempted terrorist murder and participation in terrorist activities. raising the question of whether he may have played a central role in these attacks. and we are learning the death toll has risen. 35 people have been killed. another four people died in the hospital today. we know four americans are among the dead. two have not been identified. two are known to be justin and
stephanie shults of tennessee. they were taking stephanie's mother to the airport when the blast hit. alisyn. >> that's just so heartbreak to go see all of those beautiful pictures, clarissa. thank you very much. >> russian president vladimir putin trying to credit for a major turning point in the fight against isis. syrian forces recapturing palmyra over the weekend, delivering a mortal blow. arwa damon is in istanbul. arwa. while the russians might be justified to a certain extent, it is not necessarily this so-called mortal blow. the regime was able to take full control of the city and the ancient unesco site very close by. one that many are concerned
would have been devastatingly destroyed by isis. we do know eyes during the year-long occupation that it undertook of palmyra, did destroyed centuries old temples. it seems at this stage that much of it is intact. russian air strikes, hundreds of them pounding the area, which allowed for the regime to advance. this is both a strategic victory given palmyra's location connecting homes to the east. it is arguably much more of a symbolic victory, one sure to reduce the morale around assad's forces. it is allowing the syrian president to brazenly say that his and russia's strategy is working as opposed to that of the u.s.-led coalition. >> thank you so much for that. appreciate it. a splinter group of the
pakistani taliban claiming responsibility for a suicide bombing in lahore that killed 69 people. most of the dead are women and children. the group saying it intention alley targeted christians, many families celebrating easter. more on that new video of one of the brussels terrorists on the run. how will this impact the investigation? and the manhunt for more terrorists involved? details ahead. nds of pitney bowes, the craftsmen of commerce. these are the hands that sew the seeds of business growth, that weave the data, and find the perfect spot to thrive. these are the hands of pitney bowes, the craftsmen of commerce. you premium like clockwork. month after month. year after year.

we're back, everyone. new video of the brussels airport bombing now on the run for a week. belgian federal police releasing this of a man in the light jacket dark hat. new raids and arrests of the weekend. let's bring in cnn international correspondent clarissa ward. joining us is the editor and chief of the cdc sentinel.
chris, i want to start with you about this new video. what does this new video tell you about the investigation? what does it do with the investigation now? >> well, it's interesting, don, because the belgian authorities have not really given any reason as to why they have suddenly decided to release this video now. previously they only released the still photograph. we have seen the three airport bombers. the third of course a distinctive figure in the light jacket. the only one who did not detonate his explosives. it does raise the question with them releasing this video now, have they actually identified this man? is it possible they haven't identified him? does it mean he is still on the run. there has been a lot of speculation that possibly he could have been the same faycal c. they arrested last thursday. the fact that they are releasing this video indicates that is not likely and calling into question
whether they have even identified him. >> you have new information concerning the brussels suspect? >> that's right, don. >> there are eight suspects still at large in connection with the brussels and paris terror attacks. there was an 11-page security bullet bulletin. cnn understands one of the individuals has been identified as hamad, somebody who came into europe with probably a full syrian identity card and was picked up by sal la abdeslam he
is card armed and dangerous on. we have the identity of somebody else they want. a belgian/malian extremist part of abaaoud's circle in brussels. abaaoud being the ringleader behind the paris attacks. just a few months later, there was a picture distributed on twitter suggesting he had been killed in syria. but now it appears authorities believe he may have faked his own death to come back to europe. >> you're also learning about new details how isis is coordinating attacks, plotting from al rocca, syria. tell us about that. >> this comes from an interrogation of a french isis
recruit who was arrested last summer and cooperating with french authorities. he describes european operatives to communicate with one another and with headquarters back in raqqah. an encryption tool they put on hard drives. they used one software called true crypt to scramble the messages. once they were en crypted, it was a safe way for them to communicate. like a dead letter box is how they described it. >> is this something you would expect to hear on the ground as well? >> well, absolutelily. i mean, i think that these young
men, while they're not necessarily rocket scientists or necessarily extremely sophisticated, one thing paul didn't mention, the reason they knew abdeslam picked him up, the rental card had a gps system. they were able to track all of his movements in that car. most are young. they're very web savi. certainly in my experience, they are pretty smart about using the latest types of encryption software, pgp, or a messenger service like sure spot. they do whatever they can to mitigate the risks of their conversations being monitored by
security forces. >> thanks to both of you. join cnn's chris cuomo. special report wednesday night, 9:00 eastern here on cnn. makayla. >> donald trump continue to go take on ted cruz and his wife. the question is whose campaign will take the bigger hit. new jersey state director next on "new day". plan your never tiring retiring retired tires retirement with e*trade.

"new york times". what does ted cruz think and what about the criticism of cruz's own plan to target isis sympathizers. let's bring in ted cruz's campaign, state director and former senate candidate steve monahan. >> thanks for having me. >> let's talk about the trump doctrine, if you will, that he spelled out to the "times". getting sautdy arab ya to pay for u.s. protection or telling them to go it alone. >> senator cruz came out on day one after the tragic brussels attacks and said he was best ready to be president of the united states and told exactly what he would do as a leader in taking on isis, not on deflecting with rhetoric about having the other guys pay. at this point, i don't think it matters who pays. it it is who beats isis. >> one of the things senator cruz talks about is more police
presence and more surveillance here in the united states. >> i think the vast majority of americans believe with that. the shooter in san bernardino, and the 9/11 attackers. they didn't come out of my click church. we know that for a fact. sos we shouldn't be looking in the muslim communities. they should open their doors to work with police. and they very much want to. muslims in this country will cooperate with authorities 100%. >> well, this weekend, some national security experts said ted cruz's suggestion was not helpful, even possibly dangerous. let me play that for you. >> i think when you have people campaigning through fear and using that as leverage and then giving advice to the police, that is not on the direction that american policing should be
take anything a democracy. >> in europe, it is very segregated. you have the disasperas. they are not assimilated with the culture. i don't think we have that same situation in the united states. >> that was congressman michael mccall and john miller for the nypd. they are saying it is too incendiary. >> what ted cruz is saying makes total common sense. we know where the terrorists are based out of. we know where the cells develop. to be different is towing hillary clinton's line. >> any extremist is a fraction of who lives in a muslim community. why lump all muslims into the same group? >> senator cruz has put forth a plan to fight radical islamist terrorism. we're not trying to paint the whole muslim community with the
same brush. we have seen it in paris and brussels. if we don't take an approach in this country, we're going to have a real problem. this rhetoric about we're going to force this guy to pay, that guy to pay is unproductive. it demonstrates once again donald trump is not able to debate ted cruz on a debate stage. then we can hash it out. >> we continue with a war of wives as it's being called. donald trump, as you know, threatened to go after heidi cruz. he said he's going to spill the beans. >> absolutely appalling. once again is scared to death. he's a coward. he is afraid to debate ted cruz on the debate stage. instead it goes into these personal attacks. his wonderful wife heidi, who by the way, will be campaigning
wednesday from one end of the state on the other. they are coming to compete in new york and new jersey. she will be the most amazing first lady they have seen since abigail adams. >> she talked about her struggle with depression. is that what the camp means about spill the beans? >> i think that's exactly what he is talking about. she should be an example of people standing up against things like depression, which many people deal with. >> steve, great to have you here on "new day". thank you so much for all the information. >> thanks. >> what's your take on all of these stories? tweet us or post your comment on facebook.com/newday. >> isis now on the move in the middle east and africa. everyone gaining strength in libya. has it changed the way u.s. fights terror around the globe? answers directly from the pentagon next. people download? we're good.

syrian forces say they managed to drive forces from palmyra after a year under isis control. it comes as the u.s. military officials reveal they took out the second in command. joining me now to talk about the impact on the war against isis is pentagon press secretary peter cook. mr. cook, good morning to you. thank you so much for joining us here. first, tell me about the death announced friday in a presser. what more can you tell us about his death? >> as the secretary said here in
the briefing room back on friday, we are systematically isolating members of the isil's cabinet. very high in leadership. someone that they consider to be their finance chief. this will have an impact on isil's ability moving forward. its ability to organize. in particular to pay its troops. we have seen in recent weeks we have been able to do damage. it is much harder to play their supporters, soldiers in mosul. they are cash-strapped at this point. that's because of the efforts of the coalition to target their financing, their infrastructure and their leadership. this is just one recent example. as you know, don, we took out their minister of war two weeks ago. we captured their chemical amir. there is still plenty of work to do. with the help of the coalition we are again gaining momentum
both in syria and iraq. >> let's talk about his capture. how does this effect what you're doing? >> well, listen, the fact that this person has been removed as a player within isil's leadership is significant. while we would always hope perhaps to capture people and be able to gain the intelligence, what's important here is we are again having an impact on their leadership, their ability to organize. this was a critical player, an experienced player in the leadership. from the battle field is significant. it will do harm to isil. we'll continue to target their leadership as we have from the start of this campaign. >> so let's talk about the momentum now. isis is moving throughout the middle east and moving into africa. the group is gaining strength in libya, for example. has that changed how the pentagon fights terror around
the globe? >> well, what we have heard from the start is the fact that we need to target isil. the part of the tumor, if you will, in iraq and syria. but also to deal with the metastasis of isis where it pops up in other parts of the world. libya is an example. afghanistan. we have taken actions, as you know, through air strikes in both places, trying to target isil before they are able to gain a foot hold. it is a multipronged effort. we need to do what we can to protect the u.s. homeland. we see what happens when isil spreads out in europe and other parts of the world. this is a coordinated effort. it is keeping track of isil, keeping isil under wraps wherever they might pop up. >> it says isis is benefiting from the power vacuum in libya. it hasn't been equally addressed. isis is selling themselves as
defense against foreign intervention. regardless of how the united states has changed its strategy, is it handling the situation there? how does the u.s. counter this narrative? >> well, a couple things. first of all, we're doing what we can particularly through our state department to support the new government there, taking control of the situation. the most important thing for libya in terms of protecting itself from a threat like isil would be to have a strong central government. we are doing our part along with other nations of course, along with the u.n., to try to support that. and we're working with our partners in the region, with italy, for example, other european partners, who have serious concerns about what's happening so close to their own doorstep in libya. that coordinated response, don, will make a difference in trying to contain isil in libya. it is the central government, new central government there in libya that will make the ultimate difference.
>> the troop levels in iraq are over 1,000 where they should be. it's 4,500 to 5,000 now. the chairman of the joint chiefs talked about that. take a listen. >> we have a series of recommendations that we will discuss with the president in the coming weeks to further enable our support for the iraqi security forces. again, the secretary and i both believe there will be an increase to the u.s. forces in iraq in the coming weeks. but that doesn't hasn't been made. >> why are the levels increasing? some are concerned we are creeping towards a permanent war. >> well, john, the recommendations that the secretary and the chairman will be bringing forward to the president reflect two things. a need to accelerate the defeat of isil and at the same time a request from the iraqi government to bring more capabilities to bear in this fight. united states, coalition partners, have unique capabilities that could speed the defeat of isil.
that's a conversation we want to have with the iraqi government if it could accelerate that. we move towards mosul in particular. the strategic approach here will not change. even if there are potential increase in boots on the ground. what's going to happen is iraqi, those local forces, will lead this fight. we are in a support role, enabling them to succeed against isil. so far it succeeded in ramadi. we are making preparations to mosul. supporting iraqi forces that will move towards mosul. that will not change. >> thank you, sir. >> you bet. >> michaela. >> thanks so much, don. new momentum for bernie sadders over hillary clinton. now he is targeting clinton in her adopted state of new york. want to trade the all day relief of 2 aleve with 6 tylenol? give up my 2 aleve for 6 tylenol?
(dog groans) why? because you're on four legs, and i'm on two... and i'm driving. that's why. (dog whines) sushi it is. lease a 2016 lincoln navigator for $599 a month only at your lincoln dealer. every vote is pivotal. we are winning in state after state in latino vote. we are doing better now that we are out of the south. we are doing well with young people and we are -- we think we do have a path towards victory. >> that was bernie sanders fresh off his three state sweep feeling the momentum. it is still a big climb to win the nomination. what is sanders plan?
sanders national press secretary simone sanders. congratulations on the big weekend for people just waking up and may not have been following it, bernie sanders won 81% in alaska, 70% in hawaii. he got 73% in washington state. those are huge victories. it must be so frustrating for you and the campaign to wake up after victories like that and hear pundits say he has no path to the nomination. how do you make sense of that? >> it is frustrating. when we are winning in the margins which we won this past weekend that goes to show the momentum is there. now the fight goes on. we go to wisconsin next week. we go on to states like pennsylvania, new york, maryland. there is a path to the nomination. we picked up a substantial amount of delegates this past
weekend. we expect that trend to continue. we move to a more favorable calendar. senator sanders is ready to compete. we are taking this through to the convention. >> let's look at the delegate count. let's look at the ones that have been won. when you break it down and you see how many they have won there is about a 240 point difference there. 1,200 for sec story clinton, 1,012 for senator sanders. new york has this huge like delegate prize of 247 in just that state he can close the gap entirely. is he focussing on new york in. >> definitely. new york is in play for our campaign. we opened up our headquarters office in brooklyn, new york with a huge block party. then we sent folks out to canvas. we believe new york is in play. we are interested in speaking
with the people of new york. part of the reason why we want to debate secretary clinton in new york. we believe that the people of new york deserve to hear from both of the presidential candidates in a debate setting. we hope the clinton campaign will come to the table with us. we think the people of new york deserve to hear what each candidate's plan is. senator sanders is ready to speak to the people. >> we'll see if they take you up on that invitation. here is the problem spot in the superdelegates superdelegates what makes him think the super delegates would give him a second look and change their position? >> we have picked up additional delegates. our actual number is around 35. we know there are still additional folks supporting senator sanders. what is important to remember is
super delegates are look football recruits. they say they are coming. until they sign on the dotted line you don't know that they are all the way with you. we think we have time to garner support from the super delegates super delegates especially when we are winning. you can't win like we won this past weekend and not expect super delegates to not take a second look. we are focussed on winning the endorsement of the american people. we are hopeful that those super delegates will come along. super delegates are only 15% of the vote. so we still have to focus on doing well in states, getting out there, meeting with people in these communities where it is so important to us. we are committed to doing that work. >> i know you said the calendar favors you going forward. some analysts think that is not right. and bernie sanders does better in caucus states where neighbors come together and they talk and
they can persuade each other. that's been proven and upcoming are mostly primaries. does that concern you? >> it doesn't concern us at all. we are in this thing to win it. we have made substantial investments in wisconsin, new york. we have made investments in maryland and in pennsylvania. we are having a press conference this morning in maryland. we are announcing our maryland committee. we have offices opening all across the state. we have made investments in california. so we are not concerned that caucuses are coming to an end in most upcoming states are primaries. we believe we have a message. when we talk about taking on the billionaire class in this country and talk about closing the financial gaps in this country and we talk about eradicating racism, breaking down barriers, systems of racism, addressing criminal justice reform, those are things
that senator sanders is strong on, things we are prepared to talk about. >> thanks so much for being on "new day." we are following a lot of news. donald trump talking foreign policy. we will get reaction from general wesley clark. let's get right to it. i don't think america is a safe place for americans. >> we can't become europe. >> things about heidi don't want to talk about. >> i have a guy going around trying to steal people's delegates. >> new airport security video. >> multiple raids, arrests in five different european countries. >> hundreds of men dressed in black with faces covered invaded the square. >> a suicide bomb attack at a crowded pakistani park. >> a large explosion. >> many victims are women and
children. >> syrian forces recapturing the ancient city of palmyra over the weekend. >> this is "new day." good morning, everyone. welcome to your "new day." it is monday march 28, 8:00 in the east. >> chris has gotten a little more handsome today. >> don't let him hear you say that. >> and chris smells better today. >> don lemon joins us. he is just building up his stamina for all the show that we have this morning. the people of wisconsin are about to experience a week of wall to wall presidential politics before their primary next tuesday. fighting terror and defending wives, those were conversations on the gop side this weekend. donald trump talking about ted cruz's wife heidi while laying out portions of his own foreign policy plan. bernie sanders hoping to
build on his momentum after sweeping hawaii, alaska and washington state over the weekend. vermont senator still facing a severe uphill battle in the delegate race against hillary clinton. we have the battle of the white house covered starting with david mattingly in west salem, wisconsin. good morning phil mattingly. >> good morning. how are you, sir? when it comes to wisconsin this is a place where republican candidates should be focussed. a huge contest. 42 delegates and yet they are going in talking about personal attacks. donald trump breaking from republican foreign policy and even a lawsuit threat. >> i don't think america is a safe place for americans. >> donald trump claiming americans are unsafe the day after laying out his controversial foreign policy
world view in a lengthy interview with the "new york times." he calls into question traditional u.s. alliances, describing his approach as not isolationist but america first. he says if elected he might stop buying saudi oil unless they commit ground troops to fighting isis and opening the door to notion of japan and south korea developing nuclear weapons. >> attacking spouses and children is offlimits. it has no place in politics. >> reporter: this as he and rival ted cruz ramp up war of words. >> he sends tweets attacking my wife. it is inappropriate, wrong, frankly disgusting. >> reporter: the front runner accusing cruz of knowing about a superpack ad. >> i call him lying ted. i call him that because nobody i have known -- i have known a lot tougher people over the years in
business but nobody that lied like ted cruz. >> reporter: trump threatening to quote spill the beans on cruz's wife heidi and again on sunday. >> there are things about heidi that i'm not going to talk about. >> reporter: cruz calling trump's actions a deliberate distraction coming down hard on a story in the national inquirer. >> he is pushing these attacks. these are complete made up lies. they are garbage. >> reporter: trump also blasting cruz for courting additional delegates in louisiana's march 5 primary issuing this threat. just to show how unfair republican primary politics can be, i won the state of louisiana and get less delegates than cruz. lawsuit coming. how donald trump would actually shape that lawsuit is an open
question. in louisiana donald trump won the state by three points. the delegates were allocated proportionally. he and ted cruz came away with 18 delegates. another five weren't bound to a specific candidate. ted cruz saw there were another five out there so ted cruz went down there and started lobbying. it might not seem fair but those are the rules. that is how the game is played. ted cruz's campaign not willing to let this one go. his national spokesman saying maybe your time is better spent reading the rules than sending hate tweets. >> it's allison and dan and michael. >> to be honest i sat here for ten years and said david mattingly for so long. >> we have a new mattingly in
town. >> we have a lot of names for phil. one of them is rick. we'll move on to the democrats now. bernie sanders is ready to campaign hard in new york. he is fresh off his three state sweep over hillary clinton. the campaign is gaining momentum. he has a good shot, he believes, in beating clinton in her adopted home turf. good morning again. >> reporter: this was a big weekend for bernie sanders. we could see other big days for him in the weeks ahead here. he is calling now for a debate in new york. you do point out this is hillary clinton's adopted home state where she served as senator. he is hoping to ride some of the momentum into the next few weeks from his lop sided wins this weekend. >> every vote is pivotal. we are now winning in state after state. the latino vote, we are doing better now that we are out of
the south with the african-american vote. we are doing well with young people and we think we do have a path towards victory. >> now, even with these big wins this weekend considerable margins that he won by in alaska, hawaii and washington state he still faces an uphill battle when you are looking at the delegate map. hillary clinton still more than 200 delegates ahead of bernie sanders. you hear bernie sanders talking about new york which will have iits primary on april 19. now all eyes are on wisconsin and april 5. a lot of delegates at stake and this is a state that is going to play in the general election. it is interesting when you talk about the clinton campaign and they say wisconsin probably favors bernie sanders. they want to make sure that if bernie sanders wins there is no michigan upset where it comes by
surprise and looks like a big defeat for her. this is a state near michigan so they are fearful that bernie sanders could do well there. >> it makes sense particularly what happened this weekend. let's talk about donald trump's foreign policy plans and the 2016 race. joining us now is general wesley clark, a former spre eer suprem commander for nato. he supports hillary clinton. great to have you here. >> thank you. >> donald trump sat down with washington post and "new york times." he had a 100-minute long interview with the "new york times" about foreign policy in which he said nato is obsolete. what do you think? >> i think nato is a vital organization. we put it together at the end of world war ii. it holds the united states and europe together. that is the crucial anchor point for world affairs today.
the world pivots around the link between the united states and europe. with that link we work with russia or work to manage russia. we work with china. we work with the middle east. it is the crucial foundation for u.s. diplomacy. so we can always talk about strengthening nato and talk about european nations contributing more to their own defense. we have been talking about it for a long, long time. we don't want to let go of that linkage with europe. it is vital for america's national security and for our benefit, not europe's. >> i think what donald trump's point is that nowadays the threat to the united states is terrorism and that nato wasn't designed to deal with terrorism. listen to what he said about this over the weekend. >> if you look at the ukraine we are the ones always fighting. i never hear other countries mentioned. nato is obsolete and extremely expensive to the united states
disproportionately so. we should readjust nato. it has to be readjusted to take care of terrorism or we have to set up a new coalition, a new group of countries to handle terrorism. because terrorism is out of control. >> what about his argument that nato is not good at tackling terrorism? >> well, terrorism is fundamentally about two things, first is about sharing of information and intelligence and secondly about actions at home. people in the united states wouldn't want britain and france and germany to come over here and tell us how to run our police forces. we don't want to have u.s. police over in germany and france and britain. what we do is we share intelligence. those countries have to do a better job of working on sharing information and then have to act on it. if you look at what happened in belgium largely responsibility of belgium itself.
it had the information. it has multiple overlapping jurisdictions. >> should nato help with that? it can't just be a belgium problem. terrorism is an international problem. >> nato is composed of individual nation states, united states, germany, britain, all those nations have tried to help belgium. the turkish president mentioned that they earned about the suicide bombers coming into belgium and belgium admitted they did nothing. that is a state to state issue. what nato is very good at is working beyond borders of states. so when it came to afghanistan nato was there to help us deal with that. when we are looking at libya or syria or ukraine nato was there. ukraine is not a member of nato. but as a result of russia's aggression in ukraine nato has toughened up exercises, responded vigorously to reassure the states to the east.
so everybody is working together on this. i don't think -- i appreciate what mr. trump has to say about the importance of dealing with terrorism but i think the tools we have are present. they are at hand. we don't need to reform nato to do this. we need a better job with some european governments. >> one last point on this nato issue. what about bank rolling nato? u.s. pays the lion's share of the budget over just the last eight years. should it somehow be more equitable among other countries. the nato expenses are shared out on a proportion of gross domestic product. there is a nato infrastructure fund. we do common funding for nato. each nation puts in defense contributions. we have world wide global responsibilities in our defense and so we have always recognized
that as the world's strongest nuclear power when it came to dealing with russia or other nuclear powers nato comes to us and relies on us. it is always a little bit disproportionate. it has been a 60-year dialogue in the alliance to get this burden sharing issue right. the europeans tell you they are spending more and trying to reach the 2% of gdp target that nato has set. if there is any trouble it is on their soil so it is their reserves, their police, their highway management, their roads and bridges. that's where nato has traditional lly occupied and operated. they have that part of the burden that we don't have. to the democratic side of the presidential race you have endorsed hillary clinton. are you concerned about bernie sanders big wins this weekend? >> i'm a strong supporter of
hillary. i have known her for over 30 years. she is very, very qualified. she is very competent. we have seen her in action. i think she is most qualified person in the race. let's get it on. let's go to new york. let's go to wisconsin. let's let the american people have their voices. i'm very confident that hillary clinton will be our nominee for the democratic party and she will be the next president. >> thanks for being on "new day." tomorrow night the three republican candidates will take part in a cnn town hall in wisconsin coming one week before the primary. the gop town hall tuesday night right here on cnn. breaking news. there is new airport security video released showing brussels airport bombing suspect who is still on the run, first moving image that we have seen of the suspect in the light colored jacket and dark hat amid more
than a dozen raids over the weekend. three people now under arrest in a growing man hunt. cnn international correspondent clarissa ward has the latest from brussels. >> reporter: belgium authorities haven't said why they decided to release this footage. this is the first time we are seeing video of the third airport bomber. you may remember his explosives did not detonate. he is believed to still be at large. the fact that authorities are releasing this video would indicate perhaps that they have not yet been able to identify him. meanwhile, it has been a very busy weekend for authorities here and across europe even. 13 different raids here. nine people arrested. five of them subsequently released. three people we are learning are being charged with participation in terrorist activities. we also learned about a man who was arrested on thursday who is
being identified only as faycal c. giving us the impression that he played a major role in these attacks. we also saw arrests happen in italy, in the netherlands, in france. certainly the investigation is fanning out across the european continent. we have learned today that 35 people are now being announced as dead. four of them are americans. >> with the latest in brussels, thank you so much. meanwhile, pakistan's military agencies are cracking down on terror carrying out raids in three cities including lahore. taliban splinter group admitting
it intentionally targeted christians on easter. >> reporter: the terror attack on sunday, the raids being conducted today they have made a number of arrests and have found a significant cache of ammunition and arms. it has been a very swift response on the part of the pakistani military. it is significant that these raids took place where the attacks took place. it is usually a place that they don't go for these sorts of raids because they don't want to lose the vote there. this is all quite significant coming off the back of the prime minister saying he would make sure that they would wipe this terrorist group off the face of the country. so very strong words and it all comes after sunday's attack where 69 people were killed. the worst part of this not just the fact that christians were targeted, but that there was a
playground nearby as well as an amusement park. we suspect many victims are children and young women. pakistan today are very shocked and unhappy country. the government says it is fighting back. >> just so sickening. thank you for that update. syrian forces reclaiming the ancient city of palmyra. vladimir putin is trying to take credit for it. let's get more from cnn senior international correspondent innistin istanbul. >> reporter: one must say russians do deserve most of the credit given that the air strikes allow syrian forces to make significant advances that they would not have been able to make without russian support.
hundreds of strikes leading up to the push to retake palmyra and retake control of the historic ruins there, a unesco heritage site. not perhaps as severe as many had been fearing. the syrian president bashar al assad coming out and saying their ability to recapture palmyra from isis is clear evidence that their and russia's strategy is working when it comes to defeating terrorism comparing it to that of the u.s.-led coalition. palmyra in and of itself strategic because of where it is located. this is not the moral blow the regime is touting it to be. it is a symbolic victory and one to boost the moral of assad's forces. an american airlines co
pilot failed a breathalyzer test moments before takeoff. passengers were told there was a delay. when they look out of the window of the plane they saw the co-pilot being arrested on the tarmac at detroit metropolitan airport. unsettling to say the least. the airline spokesperson says the passengers were transferred to other flights. heading to philadelphia i'm sure a little shaken. 18-year-old troy stone has died after a long battle with a severe form of muscular distrofy. our thoughts and prayers are with the stone family. very, very difficult. >> i do remember that call of duty segment. that was so touching. >> 18 years old, troy stone. >> that was not an easy life.
we have new video to show you of the release of the brussels airport suspect still at large. we have details on the terror investigation for you next. wrely on the us postal service? because when they ship with us, their business becomes our business. that's why we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country.
security video of a man in a light jacket and dark hat. new raids and arrests across europe over the weekend in connection with the brussels and paris attacks. authorities searching for at least eight suspects they believe have links to the isis attacks. joining us to discuss is cnn international correspondent clarissa ward. a former belgian government official. i want to start with you, clarissa. what can you tell us about this video? what does it mean to the investigation now? >> reporter: we don't really know. the question is why would belgian authorities release this video now? what is it about the timing? does it indicate the authorities have not yet been able to identify the man in the video. we know him well for the still photograph that we have seen many times as the third airport bomber. his suitcase contained the
largest amount of most potent explosives. it didn't detonate and he was able to flee the scene we don't know why the explosives didn't detonate. there are still so many questions and at this stage we don't know who he is or where he is and the release of this video would seem to indicate that belgium authorities don't know either. >> this is a suspect. you have said in the past that belgium is not a hot bed for terrorism or jihad. police continue to detain suspects. do you think this is a witch hunt? >> this shows that not everybody is captured already. it confirmed that there are still a number of people working in the city and different cities in the country who are dangerous and that police need to stop them. belgium authorities are doing all they can to arrest them as
soon as they can. doesn't seem to be the correct guy so this man in white, we are doing every effort to stop him as soon as possible. >> the belgium interior minister said last week that errors were made in all of this. he also said the government invested about $670 million in the last two years on antiterrorism mechanisms. more investments were needed. do you think authorities have enough manpower and technology to track down these suspects? how long do you think this investigation can continue? >> the minister said is true, but at the same time it's not enough because we need more technology. we also have to better use the resources we have. there are hundreds of
investigators busy in the field. look what happened last week after the bomb attacks. they were unable to communicate with each other. the system was finished. we are in the 21st century and the police cannot communicate with the emergency unit. that shows that we have a lot of improvement to do in belgium but we have to trust those now in charge and we can only wish them to have results as quick as possible. >> we are seeing raids all across europe. how wide is this terror web? >> i think authorities are just starting to realize just how wide it is. over the weekend we saw raids here in brussels but also outside paris, in the netherlands, in italy. this is one of the fundamental difficulties.
you heard greg talking about the issue of communication not just on the level of belgium authorities but european countries communicating. because you have the free and open borders it is very easy for these men to move undetected into different countries. many have come back from syria. they have alerts next to their names. still the mechanisms aren't in place for information sharing so that if someone arrives in the netherlands who is belgian and been to syria. those authorities will call them because they all are on the same page as a result of a shared database. we heard in the after math of paris attacks that this was supposed to be happening as soon as possible. from what we are seeing and all these different moving parts it is clear that there are still major problems with this. >> i want to talk about the riots yesterday when several
hundred protesters arrived shouting anti-immigrant slogans. it was very interesting to watch what was happening on the ground. these protesters, i'm wondering if they reflect the public's general feeling about immigrants living in the country. >> last week the story was that we were almost all terrorists. this week the story is that we are almost all fascists. this group of people showed up yesterday was a group of guys among probably 20 of them were far right radicals. it doesn't mean the whole country is like that at all. those guys are known. they are spotted. they are known to the police. so i think the terrorists are somehow achieving what they want. they are dividing the people. there were enough people to shout at them go back. no racism here. i agree with that.
but this protest yesterday how come that four other guys can -- we should have stopped them before coming here. i know a group of 20 people in the demonstration. they are all my friends and all anti-fascists. the group of guys, the group of terrorists we are asked to say not all muslim are terrorists. so all the guys there yesterday are not all racist. believe me, we need to have a more balanced approach here. the words are important. when you say fascist or terrorist the words are important. you cannot assume that the whole group was fascist group. they were dressed in black. there are plenty of people wearing black in the streets doesn't mean they are fascist.
>> thank you very much. you can join chris cuomo as he returns to paris. that special report airs wednesday night 9:00 eastern. donald trump's personal attacks against republican rivals not hurting him. is he going too far by going negative on ted cruz's wife? will women make him pay at the polls? we'll discuss this and more ahead. available virtual cockpit. are you ready? are you ready? i mean, really ready? are you ready to open? ready to compete? ready to welcome? do you look buttoned up, prepared, professional? you've got to be ready. the floors, mats, spotless. the uniforms clean and crisp, ready to produce.

there are things about heidi that i don't want totalk about but i'm not going to talk about them. you can look but i wouldn't talk about them. >> that was just the latest volley in the war of wives. that was donald trump talking about ted cruz's wife heidi this weekend. so how are women responding to this fight and what about female voters? let's ask cnn political commentator and trump supporter and former communications director for senator ted cruz amanda carpenter. do you think the trump campaign
is concerned that statements like that may have the effect of getting ted cruz back on his heels but may have larger ramification of turning off some female voters? >> i think they should be concerned about that. the republican party right now has devolved into this attack between two candidates over their wives. it's a narrative i don't want to see my party engaging in and one that needs to be stopped. that means both candidates including my candidate mr. trump. i think it is important to point out that he has won women in 12 of the 16 states where cnn has conducted exit polls. i think women care about kids being safe at school, care about the economy. i think that will drive the female vote. he should not be giving ammunition to those who want to paint him as anti-woman. >> donald trump won women in virginia but lost female vote to
marco rubio in missouri. but, amanda, do you think the female voters care about these statements that he has made towards women? >> absolutely. he has a long history of doing it. we have to put to rest this idea that it is a war of wives. this begins and ends with donald trump. he is launching warfare against heidi cruz. him and his aides stoked the idea to spill the beans on her. she has done nothing except have a great career. donald trump is attacking her for having a career and taking a risk and being a strong woman. other women notice this and it is shocking causing people to withdraw support and question things. >> i want to commend for being the rare trump supporter saying i'm uncomfortable with this. all women should say it is not okay. this is not what our party is
about. >> what is your evidence that women are withdrawing their support? >> i think i talk to a number of women who over the summer were saying this is really interesting what donald trump is doing. he is so brash and saying things that other people are thinking but don't have the courage to say but they see this pattern of him attacking women with megyn kelly, rosy o'donnell. the reporter said he called me beautiful. it was so out of context in a professional setting. he just can't help himself. he looks at women as objects and people are starting to notice. go back and look at how he profited from parading half naked and naked women around in beauty pageants and strip clubs. most certainly will be discussed if hillary clinton is the nominee for the democratic party. >> let's look at the latest polls and see what we can glean from them. this was a cnn poll just from
last week, among all women 74% have an unfavorable opinion of donald trump. it is better among republican women when asked can you see yourself supporting donald trump, 47% say no. what do you take away from these numbers? >> i think he has the ability to change unfavorables. he came into the race in june are historic unfavorables. commentators saying it was double digit negative. he changed that to double digit positive favorables. i think he has the ability to change the numbers but that is going to mean pivoting away from attacking heidi cruz. it will mean emphasizing what voters like about him which is foreign policy, his economic platform. these are reasons voters latched on to him in the beginning. he has to change and get away
from attacks and focus on what he did this weekend. it is up to him to make that choice to focus on those issues and release the personal attacks and get away from that. we are moving forward and i don't want to see hillary clinton in the white house. >> amanda, you brought up fox's megyn kelly. do you think he is capable of doing what caylee is suggesting? do you think he is capable of changing his tune? >> no. i think it is so ingrained in his personality to objectify women. i think sometimes he does try to be good but he has a temper that is uncontrollable. donald trump has a temperament issue certainly against women. he has no boundaries. it's not that he is not politically correct. he is not civil. he is an undecent person in the public sphere and generated him a lot of publicity and doesn't make him presidential.

four americans are confirmed dead nearly a week after the terror attacks in brussels. killed in the attacks two dutch siblings, alexander and sascha pinczowski. joining us now is one of sascha's best friends. i understand that you two were college room mates and best friends. first of all, tell us how you
found out that she was at the airport. >> well, i didn't know that sascha had been traveling. actually, my other best friend messaged me on facebook while i was in miami. she said sascha is dead. she was killed in the brussels attacks. i looked it up on line. my heart sunk. it was like this is a girl that i roomed with. i lived with her. we did everything together my first semester in college. she is in every single one of my new york memories. you know, it took four days for them to confirm that sascha and alex, her brother, were dead. you don't even think about it. you don't even think that someone this close to you could be killed in such a horrific accident. >> we understand alex was headed
here to new york to meet his fiance. you talk about that, regular occurrences. we all travel and go roend the world and visit people. to see something like this happen i imagine is a struggle for you to come to terms with this. >> i travel all the time. sascha travelled all the time. huge international network. it puts it in perspective for you. she represents every college girl who could have been going on a study abroad. it is unbelievable. it is almost -- i almost can't believe it. >> do you think it is going to affect how you see travel? do you think it will make you more afraid? does it change your perspective that way?
>> no. honestly -- you can't live your life in fear. these terrorist attacks is what isis wants. they want you to live your life in fear. i know sascha was a free spirit. that is why she was traveling. she wasn't going to let anything like the fear of terrorism stop her from living her life. nor can i or anyone else. that's the point. >> interesting some of us older people in the crowd are amazed at the fact that your generation is having to deal with this in a more regular basis. it is becoming as some people say the new normal. do you reject that notion? >> unfortunately, no. i don't. it's horrible. i mean, what is going on with this world you have shootings almost every week. you have acts of terrorism. it's like a scary world to live in and it's unfortunate that all
the negativity in the world overshadows the positivity. this world is such a wonderful place and just the fact that we have to grow up with this and these horrific events. >> you described sascha as the tiniest girl in the room with the biggest heels and biggest heart. >> she just had this spirit that everyone gravitates towards her like a contagious positivity. absolutely she always wore her steve madden mary jane seven inch heels. i'm 5'9". >> we appreciate you joining us with joy on your face as you remember your friend. i know you will continue to feel the impact she has had in your life. thanks for joining us on "new day." ok team, what if 30,000 people download the new app? we're good.
