tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  May 4, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
now. we gave it everything we've got. but the voters chose another path. >> donald trump delivering the final blow to ted cruz's campaign. trump wins indiana and is now, according to the rnc, the presumptive nominee. >> i think we can pull off one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. >> bernie sanders, he beat hillary clinton in indiana. what does that mean? perhaps momentum, perhaps money, but what about the math? good morning, everyone. welcome to "early start." what a morning. i'm john berman. >> math at 5:00 a.m. in the east. i'm christine romans. it's wednesday, may 4th. breaking news this morning, donald trump has knocked ted cruz out of the race, winning the indiana primary. according to the chair of the
2:01 am
republican party, he will be the presumptive republican nominee. trump beat cruz by 16 points, more than 180,000 votes, picking up at least 51 delegates in the process. cruz delivered the hard news to his crushed supporters. >> but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign. >> late last night, donald trump praised cruz, calling his withdrawal a brave thing to do. jim acosta has the latest. >> reporter: donald trump and his entire family were caught completely by surprise by ted cruz i cruz's announcement he was dropping out of the gop race.
2:02 am
trump trounced cruz in the indiana primary, a contest that the texas senator had basically described as a must win. trump's son, donald trump jr., told cnn that his father and the entire family were shocked as they watched cruz make his announcement, and trump sounded very gracious as he praised cruz for getting out of the race. a big contrast compared to what he was saying about cruz earlier in the day. here's what he had to say. >> ted cruz, i don't know if he likes me or doesn't like me, but he's one hell of a competitor. he's a tough, smart guy. [ applause ] and he has got an amazing future. he's got an amazing future. so i want to congratulate ted. >> reporter: trump also made the pivot to the general election campaign, saying he was ready to take on hillary clinton, and he even reached out to african-american and hispanic voters in his remarks. trump still plans to keep on campaigning, saying he will continue on with stops in west virginia and nebraska set for later this week. john and christine? >> all right. let's talk about last night. i got to say, if you went to bed, big surprise to wake up
2:03 am
this morning and see ted cruz had dropped out of the race. good morning, gentlemen. great to see you. i think we all saw the trump win in indiana coming. the polls certainly pointed to that, but ted cruz was saying he was going to fight to the bitter end. he didn't. he fought until indiana and he quit. what did he see, why did he get out, and what does it mean? >> well, i think, john, he saw first of all polls in california showing that he was losing by maybe 30 points. i think he realized he would lose also on june 7th in new jersey, a winner take all primary. i think cruz realized there was no plausible path. maybe he's thinking about 2020 or beyond, doesn't want to be a spoiler. he saw the handwriting on the wall quite clearly. >> brian, he's clearly looking ahead. he's already talking about -- he's starting to look like a
2:04 am
general election candidate. >> donald trump is. >> right. and frankly you've got hillary clinton, who is still fighting with bernie sanders for her nomination, but now it looks as though he has this advantage of being able to just target her at this point. >> an advantage at least for now. we have six months of clinton verse trump we can all either look forward to or dread. i hope we can overestimate the kind of fear and anxiety in the country. some people fearing clinton, others fearing trump. it feels different in the u.s. than it did in 2008 or 2012. i was with one of the late-night hosts, sort of at his private dinner last night, which cruz dropped out. you feel the tension in the room, even if we're trying to joke about it, when this news came. you saw mitt romney, for example, tweeting at ted cruz, thanking him for his service, but making no mention of donald trump. mitt romney a never trump person. yet, we'll see what the never trump coalition does in the weeks and months to come. >> let's talk about that, dylan.
2:05 am
reince priebus put out a tweet last night that got a lot of attention. he said donald trump will be the presumptive nominee. that's from the chair of the republican party. however, there are other people who say, i'm with her, they're going to vote for hillary clinton. there is a real schism here with some republicans saying they're going to bolt. >> there's an immense schism. there's been a schism when it comes to donald trump for the entirety of his campaign. i think what the republican national committee needs to do and what we see the chairman doing, the republican national committee needs to put on a good face. they need to respect the process. the process has decided on donald trump. so for the good of the process, they're going to come and rally behind donald trump. but that by no means suggests that the -- that republicans or
2:06 am
sort of the thought leaders of the republican establishment are going to do the same thing. i think, in fact, many of them will either openly oppose donald trump or sort of just, you know, bow this one out. now, i don't think those people are going to necessarily -- all of them are necessarily going to rally behind hillary clinton, although certainly as we've seen some of them will, but i think they'll sit this one out. i think they'll do a lot of soul searching about what the future of the republican party needs to be. much of that soul searching was done in the wake of 2012 election. there was a lot of discussion about needing to reach out to hispanics, needing to broaden the base of the republican party, and then of course they ended up with a nominee who's offended and ostracized many ochl peop of the people they were hoping to reach out to. >> this has been an anti-trade primary. from where you sit inside the beltway but covering wall street
2:07 am
and the economy, what does washington, what does wall street want to see? >> well, neither washington nor wall street want to see a trade war with china. they don't want to see a candidate who bashes janet yellen. there are a lot of aspects to trump that are very controversial. so the issue to me is, is it going to be the trump we have seen for the last year, or is it a new trump? last night i thought he was astonishingly subdued. if this is the new trump, if he tones it down a notch, if he's a little more moderate on policy, that's a new dynamic. >> but the new trump we saw last night was hours after he accused rafael cruz of conspireing with lee harvey oswalt. there's is no new trump. there is donald trump. correct? >> this is a candidate who embraces conspiracy theories, false information, right-wing
2:08 am
memes, et cetera. this latest conspiracy about rafael cruz came from the national enquirer and the fever swamps of the right-wing internet. this is a very strange thing for the nominee of a party. however, he did have a different tone at that press conference. there are multiple flavors of donald trump. his supporters can embrace one and not the other. maybe that's what we'll see going forward. >> dylan? >> i would argue there are nine to ten months of donald trump 1.0. there's a lot of material for the hillary clinton campaign and for the remaining members of the stop trump or never trump movement to use in terms of combatting his general election bid. we're not talking -- historically you've had candidates who pivot toward their base during a primary and pivot back or tact back toward the center in a general election. that's not donald trump. donald trump has said that muslims shouldn't be able to
2:09 am
enter the country. he said so many terrible things about women. he failed to rebuke the kkk. there's a lot here to deal with. while american voters' memories are short, i don't think they're that short. >> notice what elizabeth warren did last night. a tweet storm, saying there's more enthusiasm for donald trump among leaders of the kkk than leaders of the political party he now control. she went on and on with examples. that's just a preview of the next six months. >> but who would have thunk it? donald trump gets to pivot before hillary gets to pivot. >> if i can, just very quickly, i think we overstate how much of a problem that is for hillary clinton. she has a lot of room to expand her base in a way that donald trump doesn't. he has a core base of support. there's not necessarily a ton of room left for him to expand.
2:10 am
she needs to bring in the bernie sanders speak. she needs to bring in the 18 to 29-year-old progressives. the more time she spends with bernie sanders, that might not necessarily be a bad thing for her. >> we'll get a chance to talk about that right after the break. stay with us. the pursuit of healthier. it begins from the second we're born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company optum powers modern healthcare by connecting every part of it. so while the world keeps searching for healthier we're here to make healthier happen. my wife and i are now participating in your mutual fund. we invested in your fund

you live life your way. we can help you retire your way, too. financial guidance while you're mastering life. from chase. so you can. breaking overnight, bernie sanders beat hillary clinton in the indiana primary. he beat her by five points there. since democrats award their delegates proportionately, he didn't really make up much ground. a net gain of five. this is why he still trails hillary clinton by about 300. it could give bernie sanders a bit of a morale boost and perhaps a fundraising boost. and it might give him a chance
2:15 am
to boost his influence at the democratic convention in july. sanders says this is all good for the party. >> any concern that by extending the democratic primary that it's going to set democrats a the a disadvantage in july? >> not at all. so i have no doubt, zero doubt that what we have done in this campaign, what we are doing now, and what we will do in the next six weeks is good for the democratic party, and it will result in a higher voter turnout. >> brian, right before the break, we were talking about this twitter storm from massachusetts senator elizabeth warren, where she was going after donald trump. you have hillary clinton, who still has a fight on her hands even if it is a symbolic or moral fight with bernie sanders. but trump pivoting to the general, this is what elizabeth warren said. she said trump incites supporters to violence, praises putin, and is cool with being called an authoritarian.
2:16 am
you didn't hear from hillary clinton last night, but you heard from elizabeth warren. >> that's right. in fact, she was the loudest voice in many ways, saying what happens next will test the character of all of us. that's a different message than we were hearing from clinton or sanders. sanders was talking about how we're going to continue to fight uphill against clinton, trying to win the nomination. i think it's nearly unanimously agreed upon that sanders isn't in this to win the nomination. clinton will be the nominee, although we can't quite all her the presumptive nominee. >> dylan, bernie sanders won in indiana. you have to win to win. bernie sanders did win that election. he might get some money out of this, might get a morale boost. why doesn't this help him with the math? >> well, it doesn't help him with the math because the way the democratic primary works, he needed to win by a much bigger margin, 25, 30 points.
2:17 am
that was never going to happen. we talk about the sort of delegate math here and how we only wins a few more delegates than hillary clinton. this gets to a fundamental difference between how donald trump has been able to secure his party's nomination, how hillary clinton is still having to battle bernie sanders. so many of these primary states for the republicans are either winner take all or winner take most. that has accelerated donald trump's path toward the nomination. that was a decision that was put in place by the rnc because they didn't want to have a lengthy primary process. of course, when they made that decision, i don't think they ever anticipated a phenomenon like donald trump. for the democrats, it's a much different story. what it means is that even when bernie sanders wins a state, they effectively split the delegates. that's why the math doesn't work out in his favor. but again, like you said, it does give him that momentum. it does allow him to continue the narrative that he has built
2:18 am
this movement, that it's a serious movement, and it's one that hillary clinton needs to take seriously. >> greg, let's talk about that movement. when you look at the exit polls, as we do every morning after these primaries, you can see where that coalition of bernie supporters is. democratic men, 57% break for sanders. with democratic men, 50/50. they split that vote. young people, bernie sanders wins young people. bernie sanders wins independents. what does hillary clinton have to do to get those demographics, or will they turn to her against donald trump in a general? >> i think they'll turn to her. we've disagreed this morning about whether the republicans will unify. i think it'll be really messy. it'll be ugly, but they probably will. i don't think there's any doubt about the democrats. they will come together. even though hillary is the candidate from wall street, according to bernie sanders, i think that the tremendous antipathy toward donald trump on the part of democrats,
2:19 am
especially females like elizabeth warren, means the democrats will come together. >> all right, guys. stick around. a lot more to discuss coming up. >> indiana has the highest percentage of manufacturing jobs in the country. 67% of republican primary voters say they're very worried about the u.s. economy. another 25% are somewhat worried. added up, it's 92% seriously concerned about the economy. of that majority, 52% voted for donald trump. a sizable lead over the other candidates. for democratic primary voters in indiana, 84% worried about the economy. bernie sanders won that vote. look at the breakdown when we asked about trade with other countries. 47% in indiana say trade kills u.s. jobs. that group voted for bernie sanders. 39% say trade creates u.s. jobs. that group split 50/50. trade, jobs, that will continue to be the big theme, i think, into the general election. >> on the front lines, new information about the navy

2:25 am
let's get the lite -- latest details. >> reporter: we're learning from u.s. officials this was a coordinated and complex attack by isis militants on an area about 20 miles north of the city of mosul. roughly about 100 isis militants law firmed this attack on the peshmerga forces there. they managed to breakthrough the peshmerga defense lines. this is where the navy s.e.a.l.s were. according to standard practice, they're not on the front lines. u.s. officials say they're about two to three miles back from the front line at a peshmerga base where they were visiting and providing assistance to the peshmerga forces. isis militants broke through and a fire fight ensued. that is how navy s.e.a.l. charlie keating iv trajgically died. we're also hearing from officials that there were peshmerga casualties in this attack. the u.s. responded, john, with an f-15 and drones, dropping more than 20 bombs and also

hearing there were several other attacks similar to this one on other peshmerga positions around northern iraq. really highlighting the aublt of isis to still carry out major assaults like this and of course the da the dangers facing u.s. forces even in that advisory role. >> that's right. still very much in harm's way. thanks so much. breaking news this morning, donald trump knocks ted cruz out of the race as bernie sanders pulls off an upset against hillary clinton. but does the math matter? that's next. out, it was all pencil and paper. the surface pro is very intuitive. with the pressure of my hand i can draw lightly, just like i would with a real pencil. i've been a forensic artist for over 30 years. i do the composite sketches which are the bad guy sketches. you need good resolution, powerful processor because the computer has to start thinking as fast as my brain does. i do this because i want my artwork to help people.

2:35 am
certainly gets a lot of people talking about is donald trump pivoting, are we seeing a kinder, gentler, more civil side of donald trump. i think what we've done is we've been through nine to ten months of donald trump being extremely uncivil and sort of issuing harsh attacks on his competitors that have totally upend what had we thought was acceptable in american political discourse. i don't think a few kind words about reince priebus or ted cruz are going to make the american people forget that. donald trump has succeeded in those nine or ten months in upending our expectations. perhaps i'm wrong. >> the real story will be if republican voters can forget i . ben howell of red state says he's voting for clinton. on twitter overnight, we saw a lot of interesting stuff. we saw republicans saying, you know, burning their registration cards. i think we even heard from one
2:36 am
cruz supporter from iowa who had some interesting sound. >> good-bye, gop republican party. adios. >> wow. burning what looks like a republican party registration card there, brian stelter. did donald trump burn bridges? will he be able to win back those republicans who he alienated? >> to some degree, yes. consider our reporting from dana bash, our colleague last night, saying that the trump campaign is hearing from lots of seasoned veterans, veteran operatives of the republican party who are calling, offering their help, offering their assistance. >> these are people who want to make money. >> that's true. that's a good point. there's an important distinction here. let's step back and consider how credible this moment is. donald trump for so many years talked about running for president. you could say threatened to run for president or flirted with running for president. he never did it. he always backed away. so much so that by 2015, almost
2:37 am
none of us believed him. well, he actually did do it. he had the sense of america maybe better than anybody else about why he was going to get in the race right now. it paid off in such an incredible way. consider all the candidates like jeb bush and marco rubio, who were supposed to be the nominee right now who are not. it is one of the most incredible things i think we've seen either as viewers or as political analysts in this country. >> greg, you live in the world of washington and wall street. for a very long time, as many of us were sitting here in 2015 saying -- not really believing donald trump could get the nomination, wall street didn't believe it was possible. didn't worry about trade wars, didn't worry about what he would mean for the deficit or how he could maybe hurt the american economy with some of his policies. it seems more possible now. >> it does. you can't rule it out.
2:38 am
he's exceeded all expectations. i think for wall street in the next several weeks, there's going to be a real focus on issues. not whether he's bombastic or not but would he really get in a bug fight with janet yellen. he's indicated he wouldn't reappoint her. would he really get in a trade war with china? there are a lot of big issues i think wall street is quite nervous about with trump now as the nominee. >> all right, dylan byers, one name we've not mentioned yet this morning, john kasich. discuss. >> what is there to discuss? it's interesting. john kasich says unlike ted cruz, he's actually going to stay in this thing until the bitter end. you have to imagine that what he's hoping on here is something is going to happen between either now and the last sort of super primary on june 7th or between now and the conventions that is totally going to throw this whole thing asunder and he's going to be left standing as the one plausible alternative
2:39 am
to donald trump. the problem with that, of course, is he's not even a plausible alternative to donald trump. he's not demonstrated that he has any support, true support, outside of his home state. he's not demonstrated he would be a viable general election candidate. he more than anyone has sort of failed to see the writing on the wall. look, i don't fault him. it's hard to give up a presidential campaign. i can only imagine. but when donald trump said that we started out with 17 and now we're down to one, he might know that kasich is in the race, but effectively he's not. this thing is really over. we're heading to cleveland, and it's full steam ahead on donald trump. >> it's interesting that trump barely even attacked or insulted kasich last night. this morning east already up and on twitter, saying what a great evening we had. he's talking about how bernie beat clinton, how the democratic system is rig and crooked, but he's focusing already on the democratic race. >> good segue to our next
2:40 am
segment. can bernie sanders build off his big win in indiana? must be a not a big win. his win in indiana. can he build off that? he may get money and momentum, but what does it mean for the math? that's next.

breaking overnight, bernie sanders beat hillary clinton in the indiana democratic primary, beat her by five points. since the democrats award delegates proportionately, that means bernie sanders picks up 43 to clinton's 38. not enough to make a dent in the huge deficit, but it could give him morale and a fundraising boost. >> any concern that by extending the democratic primary that it's going to set democrats at a disadvantage in july?
2:45 am
>> not at all. i have no doubt, zero doubt that what we have done in this campaign, what we are doing now, and what we will do in the next six weeks is good for the democratic party, and it will result in a higher voter turnout. >> so let's sort through indiana's democratic primary. guys, i want to listen quickly to some sound from bernie sanders last night. we caught him on tape as he was calling in to cnn. he's sort of laying out his path to victory. even with that huge delegate deficit, this win last night stul giving him hope for a path to victory. listen. >> we understand this is an uphill battle. but i think that you're going to see some sensible super delegates look at the objective facts. bernie sanders will not only win all of the democrat votes, he's much stronger with independents.
2:46 am
you know what, you cannot become president of the united states without winning independent votes. >> dylan byers, does he really believe that there is a narrow path to victory for him for the nomination here? >> well, look, you certainly have to say that bernie sanders is a fighter and that he'll fight to the bitter end. there he is live on television on a phone call. he's really putting his all into it and leaving it all on the field. i don't believe that he actually believes he can be the nominee of the democratic party. what i do think he believes is that he has a lot of leverage heading into the convention in philadelphia at the end of july. i think he has an incredible movement. i think he's proven that he's a thorn in the side of hillary clinton and one that she can't get rid of. i think he's demonstrated that if she wants to really win the general election and win it
2:47 am
confidently, she's going to need a lot of the supporters that he has. that includes a lot of young supporters. it includes a lot of white middle class supporters who are more liberal than they are conservative, who she fears might be more sympathetic to donald trump's message. she needs to court those people. in order to court those people, she's going to need to listen to what bernie sanders has to say, and she's doing have have to commit to certain things that are on bernie sanders' platform. he has a ton of leverage. from the macro perspective, i think he's achieved a lot in this campaign. but no, i don't think he realistically believes he can be the nominee. >> if he lost, people would be saying, is it time to pull out. but he didn't lose, he won. when you look at the calendar, greg, when you look at the calendar, there's some favorable
2:48 am
territory in the next few weeks for bernie sanders, where he can continue to sort of beat this drum. >> well, you know, he could win on june 7th in california. you can't rule that out at all. so i would think -- i fully agree that he, bernie sanders now has leverage. there's an implicit threat. if he doesn't get what he wants, his endorsement of hillary will be pretty lame. i think hillary needs an enthusiastic endorsement from him and elizabeth warren. what they want is something from her on income inequality, the regulation of wall street, trade, on a lot of key issues i think he'll push her further to the left. >> brian stelter, you agree? >> that makes a lot of sense. i thought what happened last night spoke volumes. clinton's silence spoke violence. she did not congratulate bernie sanders on twitter. instead, she tweeted out, donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee and asked people to donate money to her campaign to symptom hip. she was much more focused on the fall. we aren't hearing publicly from
2:49 am
the campaign, calls for sanders to drop out or end the race. it's going to be really, really curious to see what the next few weeks hold with regards to these primaries, which will be favorable to bernie. bottom line, the electoral map for the fall is now the priority. that's now the focus. that map is favorable to hillary clinton and we'll see what trump starts to do to change that. >> i just want to jump on greg's point. he's absolutely right. you can't discount bernie sanders having a lot of potential in these upcoming states and even in california. again, we go back to the difference between the republican primary and the democratic primary. even in the states that hillary clinton loses, she's still going to pick up delegates. it's not winner take all. >> guys, fantastic analysis this morning. nice to see all of you bright and early. we love the early bird segments. let's get a look at what's coming up on "new day." >> christine, i don't have to tell you it's been quite a night. donald trump is the presumptive

u.s. forces are moving dangerously close to the front lines in the fight against isis in iraq. more than 4,000 american troops are in the region right now. some of them are supporting the iraqi army as it prepares to retake mosul. the u.s. suffering its third combat death in iraq directly linked to isis. u.s. navy s.e.a.l. charles keating iv of arizona killed in a fire fight with isis forces earlier this week. let's get the latest from iman, jordan, this morning. i think for some americans, you know, they know the united states has a presence in the region, but so close to the front lines for these special operators. it comes as a shock to some americans they're fighting so close to isis here. >> reporter: well, and in this case, christine, according to u.s. and kurdish officials, this
2:56 am
was a complex and coordinated attack by isis militants. they were using suicide car bombs and bulldozers, and they attacked peshmerga positions about 20 miles north of mosul, the main stronghold of isis, iraq's second largest city in northern iraq. this was an early morning attack on tuesday with about a hundred isis militants attacking these positions. u.s. officials say, christine, that the navy s.e.a.l.s were not on the front line, as is standard practice. they were a bit back, about two to three miles. they were visiting temporarily a kurdish peshmerga base there. but the isis militants managed to breakthrough the defense lines of the peshmerga, and a fire fight ensued. that is how u.s. navy s.e.a.l. charlie keating iv was killed in that fire fight. we're also hearing from the peshmerga that also a number of casualties that they suffered in this attack, the u.s. responded
2:57 am
with an f-15, drones, and dropped more than 20 bombs. we're also hearing from the peshmerga commanders in the area that this was not the only attack that isis launched on tuesday. it was one of several similar coordinated attacks on different peshmerga front lines in northern iraq. really highlighting isis' ability to still carry out major attacks like this and of course the dangers facing u.s. forces even in that advisory role. >> even in an advisory role, absolutely. 31 years old from a long line of military family. we wish them the best and our condolenc condolences. 57 minutes past the hour. time for an early start on your money. four influential state governors say they any what's keeping americans out of good-paying jobs, their skill sets. that opinion crosses party lines. at a financial conference yesterday, republican governors scott walker and rick scott of florida were joined by colorado
2:58 am
governor john hickenlooper and virginia governor terry mcauliffe, all of them saying there are open positions in their states that employers can not fill because they can't find skilled workers. their solution, job training, apprenticeships, and changes in the public schools. right now, there are 5.4 million jobs open in the united states. that's near a record high. 5.4 million open jobs right now. it's a sign that employers are hiring, but it also indicates that employers can't find people with the right skills. donald trump now the presumptive republican nominee in the race for president. "new day" picks up the story from us right now. we had a tremendous victory. >> we are suspending our campaign. >> i guess he's down to one. i don't know. if there a second? >> donald will betray his supporters, and i don't think we deserve that. >> ted cruz, i don't know if he likes me, but he is one hell of a competitor.

>> we have got to stay focused. we know how to do this, my friends. >> secretary clinton thinks that this campaign is over. i've g her. >> a lot of politicians make a lot of promises to you that they couldn't keep. i'm not going to do that. >> i think we can pull off one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. >> announcer: this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. good morning, everyone. and what a morning it is. welcome to your "new day." it's wednesday, may 4th. 6:00 in the east. chris son assignment. john berman joins me here. up first, a historic and game-changing night in the 2016 race. donald trump wins big in indiana forcing senator ted cruz to abruptly drop out of the race. the republican party chairman now declaring trump "will be the presumptive nominee." trump and hillary clinton now all but certain to face-off this november on the democratic side bernie sanders keeps his momentum alive with an upset in
3:00 am
indiana. sanders declaring the primary fight is far from over. clinton's delegate lead remains insurmountable. the 2016 race is covered only the way cnn can. let's begin with john berman with last night's results and the delegate score card. explain is all. >> good morning, alisyn. big wins for donald trump and also bernie sanders won as well. look at trump's margin here. nearly 17 points. he beat ted cruz. cruz out. donald trump now will be the presumptive nominee. on the democratic side, bernie sanders won by about five points in this race. the clinton campaign, very eager to point out hillary clinton only campaigned in indiana one day over the last week. what does this mean in terms of delegates? well, bernie sanders won more, 33 to hillary clinton 48, but netted enough delegates, not enough to chip into hillary clinton's huge delegate lead. on the republican side a clean sweep for donald p
