tv   CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello  CNN  March 28, 2016 6:00am-8:01am PDT

6:00 am
deserves a burger? our family is growing. our technical director gave birth to a little girl over the weekend lucy margaret born saturday healthy 8 pounds 3 ounces. congratulations and welcome to the "new day" family. >> that is a cute burger right there. >> that is a beautiful baby. time for newsroom with carol costello. >> it is a cute little burger. >> have a great day. "newsroom" starts now. happening now, who is this man? new video of the suspect in the white coat moments before the bombs went off at the brussels airport. also, life before isis. >> translator: took care of himself, someone who was funny
6:01 am
who you could have a laugh with. >> friends of salah abdeslam say they know a different man. high end night clubs, parties, drinking, what changed? plus, if you want our help pay up. donald trump unleashes a foreign policy smack down. let's talk live in the cnn newsroom. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me. new leads and new arrests. police releasing this surveillance video of the third suspected airport bomber. this is the first time we have seen the video of the man authorities say helped carry out the attacks. what we don't know whether he is alive or dead. authorities releasing a video of a second man. authorities launched more than a dozen new terror raids.
6:02 am
in the meantime the death toll continues to rise. at least 35 people confirmed dead including this couple from nashville, tennessee. let's get to clarissa ward. >> reporter: hi carol. we don't know exactly why belgian officials have released this video that shows the third airport bomber. this is the first time we have seen moving images. before we had seen the still photograph. it seems to indicate that possibly they have yet to identify him and nobody knows is he still on the loose. certainly he does not appear to be in police custody. over the weekend there were 13 raids here in brussels alone. nine people arrested, five of them subsequently released. three men are now being charged with participation in terrorist activities. we also learned over the weekend
6:03 am
of the arrest of a man who belgians are only identifying as faycal c. he is being charged with terrorist murder, attempted terrorist murder and participation in terrorist activities all of which seem to indicate he played a major role in the attacks. as of yet we don't know the details as to which attack. was he involved in the airport or metro bombing. a lot of questions here. >> recording live for us this morning. let's turn to paul. you say they are looking for eight new suspects? >> that's right. cnn is being briefed about a security bulletin that went out the day after the brussels attacks march 23 on that security bulletin there are the names of eight individuals wanted in connection with the attacks in paris and brussels. we can report identities of two of those individuals on that
6:04 am
bulletin. one of them being an individual supposedly a syrian. he is believed to have come through into europe and was picked up by salah abdeslam just a few weeks before the paris attacks. he is believed to have been operationally involved in the brussels attacks, considered armed and dangerous. there is a picture of him up on the screen at the moment. another individual identified, a brussels resident who travelled to syria in january 2014 with the ring leader of the paris attacks. isis tweeted out some pictures of him supposedly dead in syria just a few months later but now authorities think he may have faked his own death possibly to return to europe more easily. he is urgently wanted, as well,
6:05 am
in connection with brussels and paris attacks. we have also just got hold of an urgent security notice which was put out on january 15 for the man who was arrested in paris on thursday night, the interior minister of france saying he was suspected of planning an imminent attack on paris. his arrest on thursday led to other arrests in europe notably in belgium on friday including the man shot in the leg. and on sunday just yesterday an arrest of an individual connected also according to dutch suspected to be involved in terrorist planning. this spreads right through europe. >> so this begs the question, why didn't they arrest these guys before or look for them before? >> it is a fast moving
6:06 am
investigation. we understand that when they went into the apartment on thursday this being reported by french media they found documentation and evidence which allowed them to roll up other members of his network in europe. another associate of the belgium ring leader behind the paris attacks. we know from interrogation that french isis recruits from syria that he was trying to launch a string of attacks against europe. he was providing hands on training to recruits in public parks and apartment buildings and was instructing them how to communicate with each other and communicate back to isis's through encryption apps and
6:07 am
through sharing these encrypted messages on password protected sites which only they knew the password of. >> thanks so much. nearly 70 people dead in pakistan after an easter bombing targets christians in a crowded park. the blast hitting. more than 300 others recovering from injuries. >> reporter: it's almost 6:00 here in pakistan which is about 24 hours since the horrible tragedy took place in a park in the city of lahore. we have a death toll nearing 70. it was near an amusement park where this suicide attacker detonated his bombs. we are being told by officials he had 15 to 20 kilograms of
6:08 am
explosives strapped on to him. families, children on rides and complete chaos. we have been told by eyewitnesss that they saw a huge flash of light and then there were bodies everywhere and everywhere they looked there were flames, fire and dead all around. a militant group has claimed responsibility for this attack. it's a faction of the pakistani taliban. they were also behind the last major attack that took place in the country just a little over a couple of weeks ago. the government has reacted strongly. there have been lots of meetings. the military has actually enforced. military operation overnight in major cities in the province which is unusual because that has not happened before in that province.
6:09 am
we have seen operations in the north of pakistan as well as in the city but this sort of reaction by the military is unique. >> reporting live for us this morning. thank you. christians targeted in the middle east. europe on edge and the united states always considered the reliable safe hand appears to be suffering on the world stage. secretary of state john kerry says world leaders are shocked by the gop race including donald trump's campaign rhetoric. >> everywhere i go, every leader i meet, they ask about what is happening in america. they cannot believe it. i think it is fair to say that they're shocked. they don't know where it is taking the united states of america. it upsets people's sense of equilibrium about our studiness
6:10 am
and reliability. to some degree some of the questions the way they are posed to me it is clear what is happening is an embarrassment to our country. >> mr. trump isn't trying to please world leaders, promising to make america first. as "new york times" put it make everyone else pay. with me now former cia official phil. i don't want you to weigh into politics but i am curious, is our nasty election season affecting the world? >> i'd say not yet. i have friends the same thing you are hearing from secretary kerry. the proof is in what any president does. in asia people are looking at whether we continue to pivot military forces to face a rising china. in europe people are worried about vladimir putin and what kind of commitment.
6:11 am
we have seen warming in cuba. people will be looking in november about whether somebody continues that investment. i think they are appalled at what they are seeing in america now. i think there is a lot of amusement. i don't think they will make choices until they see where somebody actually will invest. >> i would like you to listen to what donald trump told abc news about american safety. let's listen. >> i don't think america is a safe place for americans. we are allowing thousands of people to come in here. nobody knows where they are from. nobody knows who they are and they are coming in here by the thousands. we are going to have problems. >> so, phil, are americans safe in america? >> sure. i do numbers. i do statistics. i don't do campaign rhetoric. let's look at a couple of statistics. the incidents of violent extremism. 330 million americans and fewer
6:12 am
than a few dozen americans killed by terrorism. that's not a lot of violence. if you look at a more significant issue that is urban violent crimes, drugs and gangs. violent crime in american cities is dropping dramatically. if you want to talk about threat to americans my first question is what is your metric? my metric is dead people. there are fewer dead people here than there were ten years ago as a result of violent crime and extremism. >> let's be more specific. i think donald trump is saying that so many people are pouring over the border. terrorists are coming with them and americans are unsafe. are terrorists radicalized people pouring over the border into the united states? >> if you are looking at numbers you are talking about tens of hundreds of thousands of immigrants. if you want to say 1,000 of them are terrorists i would say that is crazy. anytime you have immigration whether mexicans or cartel
6:13 am
members, maybe gang members. if you have people coming into the middle east maybe a few isis members. risk management, any stream you have will have risk. i don't think the risk is tremendously high but i think it is there. >> when you compare the united states problem with terrorism, with europe's terrorism problem and their homeland can you compare it at all? is it similar at all? >> we face an incident of extremism that is far lower. the fbi has far fewer cases. can't get -- concentrated neighborhoods. we have a wide variety of
6:14 am
immigrants who dispersed across the country and they have more opportunity than they do in europe. i don't think -- i know they don't have the same level of threat in the united states. >> i have to leave it there. thanks. we appreciate it. still to come, talk about a family feud. the clash between donald trump and ted cruz. here's the plan. you're a financial company that cares, but your logo is old and a little pointy. so you evolve. you simplify. you haven't changed. you still help people live their best lives. and finally your new logo is ready, and you decide the perfect time to show the world is right... now. ♪ ♪virgin islands nice ♪ ♪so nice ♪so nice, so nice ♪ spend a few days in st. croix

...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse.
6:18 am
ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. fresh off a clean sweep, bernie sanders has a clear message to supporters and to people who think they should drop out of the race. >> don't let anybody tell you we can't win the nomination or win the general election. we are going to do both of those things. >> sanders says momentum is on his side even if the delegate map is not. now the vermont senator wants to
6:19 am
debate hillary clinton ahead of an april 19 primary in her home state of new york. >> reporter: this was a really big weekend for bernie sanders. these three wins on saturday in such a lop sided fashion. he is really hitting his stride here in a stretch of states that favor him more than hillary clinton. he still trails hillary clinton in the delegate map considerably by more than 200 pledged delegates. when you add in the super delegates who are elected officials who are able to operate independently of what voters say they want, then he is behind by several hundred. bernie sanders outlining his plan to really ride the wave of momentum and to shift the math when it comes to pledged delegates and super delegates. listen to what he says. >> i think the momentum is with us. a lot of these super delegates
6:20 am
may rethink their position with secretary clinton. then super delegates in states by 40 or 50 points i think their own constituents will say why don't you support the people of our state. vote for sanders. >> the next big focus is on wisconsin next week. it's a key state when it comes to the general election and we are hearing from those in hillary clinton's corner that they think it could go for bernie sanders. they are trying to manage expectations so that he doesn't win and it sort of repeats that michigan upset that we saw a few weeks ago. >> reporting live from washington, thank you. the nasty feud between donald trump and ted cruz could wind up in court. after days of trading jabs the latest flash point is awarding of delegates from the louisiana primary. both candidates ended up with 18 delegates each.
6:21 am
now trump who won the primary on march 5 is threatening to sue cruz if he ends up getting an extra ten delegates up for grabs. confusing i know. we are joined from wisconsin. >> reporter: like the democrats republicans should be focussed on wisconsin. instead the focus is on personal attacks, donald trump's foreign policy and a lawsuit threat. >> i don't think america is a safe place for americans. >> reporter: donald trump claiming americans are unsafe, a day after laying out his controversial foreign policy world view in a lengthy interview with the "new york times." he calls into question u.s. alliances describing the approach as america first. he says if elected he might stop buying saudi oil unless they commit ground troops to fight ice skps opening the door to the
6:22 am
notion of japan and south korea developing nuclear arms of their own. >> attacking spouses and children is offlimits. it has no place in politics. >> as 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. it is inappropriate, wrong and frankly disgusting. >> the front runner accusing cruz of knowing about a superpack ad targeting his wife first. >> i call him lying ted because nobody i have known i have never known anybody that lied like ted cruz. >> reporter: trump threatening to spill the beans on cruz's wife heidi. >> there are things about heidi that i don't want to talk about. i'm not going to talk about them. >> reporter: cruz coming down
6:23 am
hard on the story in the national inquirer which earlier this month endorsed trump. >> he is pushing these attacks and pushing them for many months online. these are complete made up lies. they are garbage. >> reporter: trump also blasting cruz for courting additional delegates in louisiana's primary 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. carol, i have been talking to a number of republican operatives. and all of them say that they don't see basis for a trump lawsuit here. what it does under score is this, not only the state by state fight but a very serious fight for delegates behind the scenes as we look at the potential for open convention in cleveland. those fights, the ones that ted cruz is winning in louisiana are
6:24 am
fights to keep a very close eye on. >> reporting live from west salem, wisconsin. tomorrow night the final three republican candidates will be in milwaukee for a cnn town hall. it will be moderated by anderson cooper only on cnn. still to come just months before the paris terror attacks, why friends of the suspects say they were leading very different lives. at mfs investment management, we believe in the power of active management. we actively manage with expertise and conviction. so you can invest with more certainty. mfs. that's the power of active management.

isis suffers another military setback in syria. the syrian military says it has regained control of the ancient city of palmyra in central syria. syria credits for helping drive militants out of that city. isis fighters have been in
6:29 am
control of palmyra since last may. during that time they under took a campaign to destroy the cultural relics. cnn senior international correspondent is in istanbul with more. >> reporter: perhaps the most iconic of all that was destroyed was the entrance to the ancient city of palmyra itself, the arc of triumph. that along with millennia old temples as well as centuries old other signinstallations that map palmyra destroyed by isis. the extent of damage is unclear. regime forces according to state television only just recently in the last day or so regaining control of the city and of the ancient heritage site. various different isis locations and fighting positions over the
6:30 am
last few days with hundreds of air strikes which then allow the syrian government forces along with the militias that support them to move in and regain control. this is strategic on the one hand because of where palmyra is located. a main road between the western province and eastern isis stronghold. very symbolic for the regime forces most certainly to give them a moral boost but as the syrian president put it this is clear evidence that their ambitious strategy is working when it comes to combatting terrorism versus that of the u.s. coalition. >> reporting live from turkey, thank you. and good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me. dancing in night clubs, gambling and smoking pot.
6:31 am
what the salah abdeslam. brahim killed himself with the suicide vest. this is what friends say the brothers were doing months before the attacks. they have video to prove it. we have an exclusive report. >> reporter: this is a story of radicalization and speaks to the nature of isis's tentacles inside one small group of friends. these friends say that they're still trying to come to terms with how so many of their pals, classmates and friends from this particular bar could have changed to killers. this was life before isis.
6:32 am
salah abdeslam and his brother partying at a high end night club in brussels. it is february 8, 2015. just eight months later brahim would blow himself up in a paris cafe. two friends shot the video in the club and talked to cnn on the condition they hide their identities. >> salah took care of himself, neat, funny, you can have a laugh with, a bit of a ladies man. wasn't unusual for him to have a drink or two but he didn't go out and get drunk. >> he was better behaved. >> reporter: say they first began hanging out with the brothers in 2011. they say they came here to drink, to play cards, smoke marijuana and watch the brothers
6:33 am
favorite football team play on the tv. things could get boisterous. here he cheers on drunken antics. >> translator: i used to go there after work to have a drink, laugh, play cards, anything that involves betting with money really. you felt at home among family. >> reporter: also among that family, seen here in photos. they were detained after driving salah from paris after the attacks. the friends say they were duped. >> translator: i was with him and around 10:30 he received a phone call asking him to come and pick him up in france because his car had broken down. >> reporter: not long after the party they stopped drinking and became more religious. >> translator: they prayed more at the mosque maybe only on
6:34 am
fridays otherwise praying at home. >> reporter: praying and plotting. no one even their closest friends knows why the brothers changed so much so quickly. >> translator: he didn't have any problems with black or white whatever race or religion. >> reporter: he didn't until this. so this story also offers a number of important clues probably for investigators who are trying to trace links between parskps brussels attacks because it shows how many people seem to be involved in this cell that seems to have gathered or friends who ended up being gathered who were gathering at this particular bar. not to understate things, six particular paris suspects including one person who is still a fugitive at large and two suicide bombers were friends of the people i was talking to.
6:35 am
despite the fact that the individuals have had brushes with the law have not been interrogated by police yet. >> thanks so much. so there is confusion and fear about how to root out terrorists everywhere in the world but especially in brussels. police barricading off the streets as hundreds of right wing protesters stormed a memorial service chanting anti-immigrant slogans and raising arms in nazi salutes. there is a growing anti-immigrant feeling here in the united states, too. let's talk about that. lorenzo, director of george washington university program on extremism. thanks for being with me again. i appreciate it. >> good morning. >> let's talk about what happened in brussels with the right wing protesters. those protesters blamed immigrants coming into europe.
6:36 am
is it right for them to place blame on the immigrants? >> no. obviously we are talking about a fringe group of people, soccer hooligans as most europe countries the soccer hooliganism dominated by small right wing groups. these people create havoc every weekend in the stadiums. obviously, they took advantage of the situation in belgium as they were gathering and sending positive message they hijacked what was happened over the weekend in brussels to make their political point. it speaks to a larger sentiment that what does exist is not limited in the fringe of people linking terrorism. we see europe growing with influx of refugees. that's an argument that a lot are containing growing consensus using in times of fear like this a lot of populism going around. >> there is a fear that --
6:37 am
europe has a million immigrants from syria and iraq and fear that these immigrants are assimilating into european cultural helping bring along the rising tide of fanaticism within europe. >> you are absolutely right. i think we have two problems here. the first is strictly linked to security and terrorism. there is no denying as the attack have shown that among refugees coming there are a few individuals that are linked to isis that are up to no good. some of them are citizens of european countries but come back under assumed identities as refugees and some are refugees. we have seen cases of people who were engaged in terrorism. the problem does exist and european security forces are struggling to contain that. the second part is assimilation
6:38 am
which is something europeans have been discussing, a problem that effects all european society since 9/11 we have been discussing that and the issue of integration in european societies is an open wound. >> just on the subject of why young men and young women turn to terrorism and become radicalized, is there any one thing that does that that can help authorities focus on that individual person and say those are warning signs and we have to keep an eye on that person? >> unfortunately, there is no single profile. the back grounds are so diverse. the radicalization is so diverse. we talked about how quick it was for some brussels attackers and other cases much slower. you have people that are drifters. you have people with phds and very well educated. we talk about integration and how integration or lack thereof
6:39 am
is one cause of radicalization. we see cases of people who are seemingly well integrated. in some european countries 20% are converts. authorities are struggling to find what drives people to buy into isis narrative and what are indicators that point to the people making the leap from embracing extremist ideas to violence. it is almost impossible task and it is really no common denominator. frightening thought. thanks for being with me this morning. louisiana lawsuit? weeks after republicans faced off there a new fight is brewing. you can't breathed. through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. a mouthbreather! how can anyone sleep like that? well, just put on a breathe right strip and pow!

6:43 am
the louisiana primary took place more than three weeks ago. for donald trump a battle over the results may have only just begun. the gop front runner tweeting
6:44 am
just to show you how unfair republican primary politics can be i won the state of louisiana and get less delegates than cruz. lawsuit coming. first let's review what led up to mr. trump's threat after the march 5 louisiana primary they were each awarded 18 delegates. now ten more are up for grabs. five awarded to marco rubio who is out of the race plus another five who are unpledged. according to the wall street journal those ten delegates will likely back ted cruz. all of this sparked by louisiana's gop party rules which distribute delegates proportionally. that prompted this response to trump. maybe your time is better spent reading rules than sending hate tweets. let's talk. larry sabido. larry lewis. welcome to both of you.
6:45 am
>> good morning. so larry thrks chairman of the louisiana gop says trump is just wrong that the delegates were awarded correctly and that unpledged delegates are out of our control. is this all bluster on trump's part? >> well, it may be bluster in the case of louisiana. as far as i can see they did follow the rules and the rules were written long before there was a trump candidacy. so i think probably louisiana is okay. by the way, lawsuits involved in party rules almost always fail. the judiciary stays away from that kind of thing. having said that, trump is on to something. i think he is finally grasping just how much the party establishment is against him. and they are going to try to do everything humanly possible to make sure he is not the
6:46 am
republican nominee. >> so with that in mind, trump has said previously there will be riots if he isn't given the nomination. is he trying to build a case with threats like these of a lawsuit? >> certainly. he's talking in a common sense language that i think a lot of people would understand saying i won louisiana. well, he won by 3.6%. it was virtually a dead heat. he as larry points out properly didn't pay attention to the rules, didn't use famous negotiating skills to strike a deal with marco rubio. and so he doesn't get those five delegates. this is going to be repeated in state after state, some version of this same question. and i think donald trump did not properly prepare for the hostile takeover of the republican party that is essential to his candidacy. he is taking over an apparatus that he doesn't fully understand. >> there is fear in cleveland.
6:47 am
if there is a contested convention there will be problems. nearly 50,000 people signed a change.org petition to openly carry guns at the republican convention. and i throw that out there because i'm certain that the cleveland police would not welcome that. >> well, not just the cleveland police. somehow this is just a guess, but i don't think the secret service is going to prove that having the loads and loads of delegates with firearms inside the arena with presidential candidates appearing on stage. just a guess. having said that i have gone to every convention since 1976. if this petition actually is passed and holds for the convention i think i may watch this one on tv. [ laughter ] >> okay. let's switch to the democratic side because that's getting a
6:48 am
little crazy, too. bernie sanders he swept the western caucuses on saturday. he says he might be able to convince some super delegates to support him. could bernie sanders win over clinton? >> he is going to need a lot of support. he is going to need a lot of really lucky breaks. we are going into a phase of the campaign where there really aren't anymore caucuses. there is wyoming, guam and one other territory, virgin islands. caucuses is where bernie sanders has been able to shine. the rest are primaries. they are not by any means favorable states. because of proportional delegate allocation rules these are rules that went into effect after his 1988 run, bernie sanders will always keep picking up delegates but to close the gap is mathematically very difficult.
6:49 am
he will need blowout wins in almost every state from here going forward. >> what if bernie sanders wins wisconsin? >> well, he will manage to close the gap a little bit but he is absolutely right. you have to give bernie sanders credit. he does have momentum coming out of those giant wins in those three caucuses. he doesn't win primaries very often but wins caucuses. he has momentum. goodness knows he has the money. people are throwing contributions at him. he doesn't have the base of mathematics. you can't do anything about the math of this particular convention. the super delegates are not by and large going to convert to bernie sanders from hillary clinton. >> have to leave it there. thanks to both of you. still to come. in moments the governor of georgia set to speak. we don't know what he will talk

i'm going to watch jason get stung my bees. >> great video. i love it. carol, march madness has been awesome. syracuse, a microcome of the madness we've come to love. incredible comeback against virginia last night.
6:55 am
syracuse looked like they stuck a fork in them. they looked down. five three-pointers in the first half by one player. uva odd by 16 points at one time but syracuse turns up the heat for six turnovers in the second half and go on a 29 to 8 run over the last 9:30. malachi richards says no. down by three, virginia has a chance to tie it with 12 left, but no, syracuse wins the shocker 68-62. becoming the first ten seed to ever make the final four. they're going to take on north carolina who beats notre dame to remain the only number one seed to make it to the final four. it was close at half. but carolina was up by just five at the half. bryce johnson and the tar heels were too much. johnson leading with 25 points,
6:56 am

good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. any minute now the georgia governor set to hold a press conference amid the state's religious liberty bill. until how the governor has been tight lipped on the whether or not he'll sign the film into law. now major corporations are threatening to pull their business out of georgia if this bill becomes law. as written the measure allows faith based groups to refuse service to same sex couples or deny services to other couples who hold their sincerely held religious believes. more than a dozen states debated similar bills over the last year. we are continuing to monitor the news conference. we'll take you back live to atlanta, georgia when he takes the podium. america first, that's the
7:02 am
brand of foreign policy donald trump says he'll take to the white house. telling "the new york times" he's not an isolationist, but he says we won't be ripped off anymore. we're going to be friendly with everybody, he says, but we're not going to be taken advantage of by anybody. and when mr. trump was asked if he thought europe was safe for americans right now in the wake of a deadly brussels attack, he said no, and he took it one step farther. >> i don't think america is a safe place for americans, you want to know the truth. i don't think england or -- i don't think that europe is a safe place, no, i don't. i think there are a lot of problems in europe that are very severe but neither is the united states a safe place. we're allowing thousands of people to come in here. nobody knows where they from. nobody knows who they are. they're coming by the thousands. we're going to be problems just as big or bigger than they've got. >> cnn's phil mattingly is in
7:03 am
wisconsin this morning, and, phil, we could be talking about tabloid news right now, but let's pause on that and talk about policy. >> yeah. carol, it's been really interesting over the last couple of days. we've started to get a window into donald trump's foreign policy views. we've heard about his talks about immigration and trade, kind of top line issues he doesn't delve that deeply into. in foreign policy. between interviews and one with the new york times, we've gotten in deep. one of the interesting elements is his views on nato. views that ted cruz has taken no time to criticize. take a listen. >> i think nato is obsolete. nato was done at a time you had the soviet union who was obviously much larger than russia is today. i'm not saying russia isn't a threat. we have other threats. we have the threat of terrorism. nato doesn't discuss terrorism.
7:04 am
nato isn't meant for terrorism. >> what donald has done -- when he gets scared, particularly on foreign policy, donald is out of his depth. he doesn't understand these issues. if donald were president he did what he said he would do, withdraw from nato, it would hand a mass iiive victory to pu. isis would be dancing in the street. >> reporter: donald trump in the new york times interview calling into question some bedrock principles of u.s. policy on treaties and alliances, including relationships with saudi arabia, with south korea and japan, raising a lot of questions not just that he's breaking with republicans but with u.s. foreign policy in general. one key point here, on nato, some of his complaints have validity with the mainstream. only five of nato's members are reaching the spending threshold they're supposed to be getting
7:05 am
for fgp. there's a lot of compliants about that, but calling it obsolete is something we haven't heard before. it's within a very interesting week on foreign policy from donald trump. something i think we'll hear a lot act goibout going forward. >> thank you, phil. mr. trump's foreign policy has left experts scratching their heads. he's fighting for redemption on another front q women. 74% of republican women have an unfavorable view of mr. trump, so his camp was doing damage control. donald trump junior tweeting a picture of trump's new baby. cruz says trump is afraid of strong women and continues to bash trump over his attacks on heidi cruz. trump is not backing down
7:06 am
either, saying cruz hit first when a super pack used a picture of trump's wife in a utah ad. >> it was a retweet that somebody sent to me. it was a retweet. what he did was far worse. i mean, he takes out a thing and sends it to utah to the voters of utah, and it was a cover shoot, and it was by a big magazine. she was a very successful molde. did lots of shoots. to send that like it was a bad picture was disgusting to me. i thought it was disgusting, and they make me like the bad guy here. i'm just responding to what he does. i e resporespond. i counterpunch. >> all right. let's talk about this. i'm joined by tara setmyer and
7:07 am
scottie nel hughes. thank you to you both for being here. tara, you wrote an op ed on this very topic. can mr. trump overcome this? this poll is damaging. 74% of republican women hold an unfavorable view of him? >> that's a pretty astounding number. it's been over 50% for a very long time. it's not like this poll is an outlier. donald trump's negatives outweigh his positives across the board except in the republican primary. even there there are questions about whether he can get above 40 % because he has yet to get above 50%. this is something that people are very familiar with donald trump. he has 100 name i.d. he's been in the public eye for 30 years or so. it's very difficult to change people's minds this much. when you're looking at 74% of
7:08 am
women in a general election, have an unfavorable view of you, what are you going to do? all you have to do -- when he's up against hillary clinton, i can see the ad guys looking at this and saying we're pulling out every single quote he's said about women, the fat pigs, you look like the face of a dog, a woman who was a lawyer who was asked for a break to breast feed during a deposition, he called her disgusting. that's a professional woman because he was deposing him. he didn't like that. going after heidi cruz because of her past bout with depression which millions of women suffer from. it's a very real thing. using that as a political threat during a twitter rant is despicable. these kinds of things, women see this, and they go this is not a guy that i feel has my best interest in mind. he can use whatever slogans he wants and tell people he loves women, but his own behavior does not show that. >> so, scottie, no matter who
7:09 am
was at fault, by doesn't mr. trump just take the high road? >> i think he does a couple of times. unfavorable does not mean not voting for, especially when you're going up against hillary clinton. just because it's unfavorable, i might not agree $100 -- 100% with what anybody says, but that doesn't mean i'm going to vote for the democrats. >> i don't know. do you have a daughter or a little sister? >> i absolutely -- today is her eighth birthday, and i'm taking her to trump towers to see mr. trump and everything he's built. that's why people like him because we have children and they can see what hard work pays off. whether you're a male or female, i show her -- >> stop for a second. so your eight-year-old niece, is that what you said? how do you explain to her these things that donald trump says about women?
7:10 am
>> real simple, stick and names may break my bones but names will never hurt me. i look at actions. i want my daughter to base her career on actions and the actions of mr. trump and how what he has done for women, how he promotes women within his own country and the women within his own country and how protective he is of his women. that speaks louder than any words that might be spoken. i give women a lot more credit. they don't just go for talking points. they actually go for what they produce, and you look at the jobs mr. trump has produced. you look at the things he's built, that i think will appeal to women. he might be unfavorable in opinion, but that doesn't mean they won't push the button for him. >> to do you agree with that, tara? >> no. in the bible it says the power of life and death is in your words. words matter. out of the abundance of your heart, so the mouth speaks. words do matter. to dismiss what someone has to say, i think is disenjen wous.
7:11 am
you're going to teach kids that -- >> it's my daughter. >> your daughter. so material wealth, supersedes someone's character, integrity, their actions, but because they build tall towers and they've hired some people, their character and integrity doesn't matter. >> no. words don't reflect character and integrity. >> yes, they do. >> let's talk act character and integrity. >> what you speak reflects your character and integrity. saying words doesn't matter -- donald trump has zero -- >> there has never been a stronger character and integrity than mr. trump. >> he's been married three times. he publicly shamed his wife when he was cheating on her. that's a man of integrity for you? >> the man sat there and paid a woman's farm off after her husband committed decide to get money -- >> i'm going to stop it here. we get the picture. we get the picture.
7:12 am
okay. i have to leave it here. i have to leave it here. thanks to both of you. thank you. tomorrow night the three republican candidates will take part in a cnn town hall in wisconsin coming just one week before the primary there. the gop town hall tomorrow night, 8:00 p.m. eastern on cnn. now to the democrats. a jubilant bernie sanders who was vowing to win the nomination and the election after a sweep of caucuses in alaska, hawaii over the weekend. sandsers says they may encourage one key group to feel the burn. >> a lot of super delegates may rethink their position with hillary clinton. then you have super delegates in states where we win by 40 or 50 points. i think their own constituents are going to say to them, hey, why don't you support the people of our state, vote for sanders. >> chris frates joins me with
7:13 am
more on the democrats. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. washington, hawaii, and alaska were must wins for bernie sanders to give him enough momentum to keep him in the hunt. those delegates are awarded proportional. so despite losing, hillary clinton still got points. let's go to the numbers. going into saturday's contest, sanders trailed clinton by about 300 pledged delegates. even with his sweeping wins, he lags by 240 delegates. those big wins only cut the lead by 60 delegates. and sanders will need to continue to put up huge numbers. he has to win 75% of the delegates left to clinch the nomination. that's a really high bar. clinton for her part needs to win just 35 % of the delegates remaining to become the nominee. and clinton still holds a commanding lead among the superdelegates. those are free to choose whoever they like for the nomination.
7:14 am
sanders' campaign argues if they keep winning, they'll come around to their side. clinton trying to win enough pledged delegates that they never consider bolting. and sanders is also looking to challenge clinton on her adoptive home turf, calling for a debate in new york. >> 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, wherever, on the important issues facing the country. >> are you worried she won't debate you anymore? >> yeah, i do have a little bit of concern about that. but i certainly would like to see a debate in new york state. >> now, for her part, clinton has tried to focus her fire on republicans. today in wisconsin she'll criticize barack obama f--
7:15 am
blocking barack obama's supreme court pick. with all the delegates at stake in new york, that's second only to california in the number of delegates, clinton may be forced to refocus on sanders, and this race could become the deadliest knife fight we've seen in the democratic debate so far. breaking news out of georgia. the governor of georgia has vetoed georgia's religious liberty law. nick valencia is on the phone. what did the governor decide to veto? >> reporter: he said it was based on sound, judgment, and solid reason. he called georgia a welcoming state. he was under tremendous pressure by major blue chip companies. the nfl saying it was going to put at risk atlanta's bid for the super bowl, hollywood also peeking out against it including turner who spoke out against the
7:16 am
legislation. the governor took a few weeks to decide what he says already in his convictions, but according to the governor moments ago, he'll veto house bill 757, an act to defend religious freedoms. it was based solely on faith based institutions. it was amended from an initial bill that included businesses. advocates of the lgbt members saw it as discrimination. supporters of the bill said it would not further discrimination but rather protect their religious freedoms in this country, christian right is a huge supporter of this bill. senator mike crane, one of the biggest advocates of the bill, said this would protect the attacks of morals and values that are under attack in this country. the governor clearly did not agree just a few moments ago. he said he will veto house bill 757, so-called religious liberty bill here in the state of georgia. >> just so people completely
7:17 am
understand, the bill would have allowed faith based organizations to deny services to those who violated their sincerely held religious believes. it would also allow employers to fire people who did not hold those believes. as you said and as we've been reporting, the governor decided to veto the bill. let's listen to why. >> as i stated before, i do not think that we have to discriminate against anyone to protect the faith based community in georgia of which i and my family have been a part of for all of our lives. our actions on house bill 757 are not just about protecting the faith based community or providing business friendly climate for job growth in georgia. i believe it is about the character of our state and the character of our people.
7:18 am
georgia is a welcoming state. it is full of loving, kind, and generous people. and that is what we should want. they choose to worship god in the way they see fit in a myriad of ways and a variety of dif different settings. i believe that is our best side, and our people, every day, work side by side without regard to the color of their skin, of their fellow mate or the religion that their co-worker might adhere to. they are simply trying to make life better for themselves, their families, and their communities. that is the character of georgia. i intent to do my part to keep it that way.
7:19 am
for that reason i will veto house bill 757. thank you. >> all right. the governor explaining why he's going to veto that religious liberty bill in georgia. nick valencia, thanks. we'll be right back. hyeah?m. we've got allstate, right? uh-huh. yes. well, i found this new thing called allstate quickfoto claim. it's an app. you understand that? you just take photos of the damage with your phone and upload them to allstate. really? so you get a quicker estimate, quicker payment, quicker back to normal. i just did it. but maybe you can find an app that will help you explain this to your father. quickfoto claims. just another way allstate is changing car insurance for good.

7:25 am
played a direct role in what took place last tuesday, the clues that led to his arrest and those charges proved inconclusive. so today he has been released. the investigation continues, however, in the last 24 hours. the police here say there have been as many as 12 raids in brussels. a further third people have been charged with terror related offenses. and the cost of this attack on the human side has increased. we've learned today that the number of people killed in those suicide bombings at the airport and metro station has increased from 31 to 35. a further 4 people have tied in hospital since the attacks that took place last tuesday. >> all right. phil black reporting live from brussels this morning. thank you. still to come, a lady's man, someone you could laugh with. up next hear how friends of the two paris attackers describe the men before they turn to terror. ♪ every auto insurance policy has a number.

what the men were like before they turned to terror. >> i don't think things snapped in one go. it would have been little by little. they were nice people. they had a lot of fun. they loved life. >> salah took care of himself. he was neat. someone who was funny. a bit of a lady's man. it wasn't unusual for him to have a drink or two, but he didn't go out and get drunk. >> brahim was a lot more intelligent and better behaved. >> brahim, the man on the right, blew himself up with a suicide vest during the paris attacks. salah abdeslam on the left was captured by police earlier this month after an international man hunt. let's bring in bob baer who is a former cia operative, and also mark kimmit. welcome to both of you.
7:32 am
bob, how do two men go from partying in -- how do two men in eighth months go from partying to religious extremists, to blowing up a cafe in paris? >> you know, carol, this is the problem, trying to profile these people, even the 9/11 hijackers were out partying before. these people take a selective reading of the koran. they're in and out of jail. they're at loose ends. all of a sudden they find new believes, and they turn radical quickly, and it's influenced by neighbors, by friends, and the rest of it. they're looking for a meaning and purpose in life, and it happens to be martyrdom, and secondly, they identify with the conflicts in the middle east, the bombings and the orthodox
7:33 am
sunn. it's a distant conflict, but all of a sudden in their minds they decide they have to contribute and do something and make something of their lives. it's a huge radical jump. it happens so often. >> general, there is no profile, though, of who exactly will be turned on by these extremists overseas. how difficult does that make it for the military to fight isis? >> well, as bob said, we have no idea primarily who is being drawn into these radical circles. it could be anybody off the street. in many ways as much as we in the u.s. military recruit our people, we look for young men ready to adhere to a higher purpose, ready to go off to foreign lands and fight for that purpose. clearly different objectives in the case of the radical jihadist and what the u.s. military does, but i am less concerned about
7:34 am
once they're on the battle field more concerned about when they go back to their home countries, or if they never leave their home countries and become home grown radicals and terrorists. that's the greatest danger. >> and i can understand that. i can. you know, but the united states is trying everything possible, it seems, to defeat isis in the field of battle. they seem to be making some progress and many say it's not fast enough. and also, bob, i guess i want to ask you this question. so supposedly american forces are making progress against isis, and that's causing home grown extremists to act. is that true? >> i think it is. i think there's been huge setbacks for the islamic state. as the general said, we're doing fine on the field of battle. we will defeat this group with allies. we will take raqqa again. the problem is the paradox, if you like, is that these same
7:35 am
people are going to react by lashing out in europe and possibly the united states. people are going to still identify with this conflict and in defeat, they become more dangerous, and these explosives are so easy to make, and the technology is easy to spread, that i think we haven't seen the end of the brussels type attack in europe by no means. >> all right. i have to leave it there. thanks to both of you. let's head out to washington d.c. to talk about something happy for a change. this is a 138-year-old tradition. you're looking at live pictures of the south lawn at the white house where the annual easter egg roll is about to get underway. more than 35,000 people coming out for this event. athena jones is nearby. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is a bright light amidst of the sad news. no politics. just a lot of fun. you mentioned more than 35,000 tickets. 35,000 people are going to be

easter candy here and left it on the desk for other people to eat. >> i'll be over there shortly. you're not here to talk about candy or happy easter stories. you're here to talk about angry voters. >> it's a primary voter that is essentially angry about the direction of the american economy. even though the exit polls show that six in ten of the voters say their own economy is okay, they're worried. they're very worried. here's what they're not feeling. they're not feeling some of the things going right in the economy, 4 .9 unemployment rate. a stock market up 200% in seven years. did you know home prices rose 11% and 25% of the market is up at record highs. they feel this is the chart they feel, this has median household income. this is how much a family has. earn every year. after bill clinton's presidency look at how well households did.
