you wouldn't have ros, scools, hostals, i mea i n't ve minent domain but you need it or you don't have a country. >> t race between you anted cr hent wants make it about
here's what he said yeerday when it comes to you a conservati. i want to get you to eact to it. re he s. >> perhapsone of the reasons that the washington esshment rushing so ic behind donald tru is thatonald has been anactive uppter. he gave 0,000 to t clinton fouatn. heactily sillary clintonasic candida. he supported chuck schumer, he supported andrew cuomo, he supporemanuel eded rm emanuel so they know he will cut a deal. >> i know you've eracede idea of cutting a deal but some conservatives fear yore not conservavethat 60 yea weren't a onserviveyou've only be one t last eight or nine. >> most conservatives ve me or wouldn't behavingtheol numbers fox just cam out, their nbers through the rf. i would haven the poll nuers i have that. i am a conservative but g along with people. ted cannot get along wh people at all.
a nay guy, nobody likes him. not one replicasenator. he worksith them everyday. notne republican setor endorsed ted cruz. hen you thnk of , thas impossibleo believe. otone. i'm rious. you've be thengnt cuz the lasten daysn this ss. for six months you talked abou how much youiked ted cruz. >> was very nice to me and i kept saying wn it ing to happen, ted? was wting be i want to ounterunch. i don't want to be the first one. and duringthe debate which ever said i won he got nasty and arted hitng me and i hit him back. anything i sid was okay to him. anything i said and he was really -- look i h people that have been trrific on t stand. i like the candates on a pealbasis. during that perd of time i said come on, wh is i gog thaen? i understand ted, ted is nasty
>> it sound like-- you said you wouldn't vote for him if he's the nominee. is that true? >> i talked about the fact that i'm not re that i can vote for him because as yknw, he has aajorissue. in fact, illinois is lookit it serioly. i d't know if he's going to be okay to run in illins in th state illinois. was brn canad he was born on canadian soil,e was a tizen of canada -- >> can you sign a pledge? uck, chuck -- >> can you sign a pledgehat you willuppo the publican nominee? >> that was relating to canad the qution was th and lating to cana. the question is weth or t he can run. i tellu mein from the standpoint of voters in iowa and ew mpshire andll e places that have tovote, how can you vote for a candidate -- how canou dit en you do even knowf that candidat is ab to run. laurence tribe from harvardaid it's totally unsettled w. a number of top constiutial lawyer come out recently ov e la few days and said
so there's a real question and i sae should get a declaratory judgment. he has t do something because howan you have a campaign when it'svery possible you are not lowed to run. >>et me askou about "national review," i've seen your eets, i knowow feel out the magazine and h you feel abo this issue. let me get you to rspond to one quote from erk erickson. he writes this "like the angels in heen who rice for every new belier we shld rejoice f donald trump's conversion conservatism, but we shou not put a new conrvative in charge of consrvti or the countr hat do you tell conservatives that will make them believe you n't lee the idlogy if it convetr unpopular. >> well, that's not a insulting quo. it really is. i was going to him hard. it wasn't an insulng quote. the "natial review" is a
they did it because i'll get ne publicity. was a somewhat libel democrat and over the years evolved and became a fairly conservative -- not overly- t fairly conservative republics. he became a great presidentlso nd i've evolved and a lot of people canged poons on ings over the years and byhe way,ted cruzhas changed his position. he was a very, ry he was very weak on illegal immration. a now all of a sudden becau of my stance he g strong but cruz w weak on immigration now got stronger. let's s what happens but use tterm "rnald reagan, i use the name ronald reagan andat's pretty good to me. you know, just about - well, out 15, 20 minutes ami mn putut a tweet saying
hix tus andhe belies that every 216 candidate should release their returns before the fir ctest. st so you know, everyminee, mr. ump, has released thr tax returns going back to 1980, buclinton, by the way, hillary clinton, we have every tax return thater name has been on since 77 in the public domain. will you release any of your tax returns for the plic to scruzed but? >> well, we're working on that now. i have very big turns and i have everything all approved and very beautiful and we'r working on that oer the next period of time, chuck. absolute. >> what's the perd of time? before the voting bens? >> i don't ow, th is not like normal tax return, this a big tax return and i wi say thisnd i'm very proud to say it, i think the country is ru horribly, i hate what they do with our money and unlike evydy else, i t and pay as littl tax as possie because i hate what the do with tax ne i hate the way ty spend our money, the way th give it to iraq, the way they gve it to iran, the way they gi it to -- eryth
>> i hate the way our politicians spend our moy. i hate the way they give it away to everybody but u we have to rebuild o country. >> but y willrelea it? >> and i say it and reporte said "that's the mostrefreshing answer i've eereard on taxes." becse everyone tri to build it up, like mitt romney, he built it tri to build up how much he pas. doesn't work th way. at the appropriatime you'll be satisfied. >> finally i have to ask you about bloomberg. what d you make of thedea that if you're the nominee, if sanderis the nomine that would ire mr.boomber to go third party. >> michael hs been a friend of mine over theears. i don't know we're friends anymore. i would love toave him run. i would love that competition i'd do very well again it. i wouldove to s micel bloomberg run. >> all right, you embrace its. mr. rump, i'll lee it there. ay sa on t trail, see you next week in iowa. >> thank youery uch. you got it.

w's right let's look at cruz. cding to our latest nbc news "wall stret joural" l, among tse five groups the republicanparty struggled to win, cruz is underwater across the board. more people ha an unfavorable view than a favorab one. at'sad news for the reublicans, right? but now he is how trump's nuers lo among the same groups. the negatives are much worse. look at where he is among african-americans his net negative rating is 72 points in t wrg irection in fa trp's best numbers in these groups of vers, dependents,uburban voters and latinos, his worst numbers are still bette than uz's worst numbers excuse me cz's wors nbers a better than trmp's worst numbers. so looking at itby the dat at ast suggts trump would start general eleti campaign in a much deeper hole than ted cruz. when we come back, the repubcanpay's double bank shot plan to pport donal
later. and can you expln why yourecommsytic cedar? "super food?" is thata al thing? it's a great school, but is it the right one fohe is this ly any better an the e you got last yea if we consolidsupplis, what's theavingshere? sd we g rsep? .. 423 enough? good question. u ask a lot of good questions... i think we shoulmove youinto our newund. sure. ok. but are yoasking enough about hoyo weah is managed? wealth managemenat charles scab we brought you here today to get your honest opinion about this car. toeep things unbiased, we removed all the logos. feels like a bmw. reminds me a little bit of like an ai. so, this car suorts apple carplay. siri, open maps. shgee. wo it also has teen drer technology. itn mutes the radio until e seat beltsre buced. i'm very curious what it is. this is the 2016 chealibu. anit sells for
t me brin the panel, mr.fix, pitical reporter for the "washington post," two of our campaign reters, i got them to stahere for the blizzard, krisn welker who has been covering the clinton campaign a lotnd kasie hunt, we've had you all over thepl most rent with mr. sanders and david brooks, clut in fo the "new yk times welcome to you al before get thgs started, we he this great littlerump vesus cruz this week. it'sasty and personal. take alook. >> right now the washington esablishment is is abding marco rubio. they made the assessment marco can't winhis race and the wainon establishment is rushing over to supportonal trump. his new line of attack is that i'vebeme establishment. give me a break. [ laughter ] beuse boole is a terrific gu and said trump wil do better tha cruz which i -- beieve heme i will do better than cruz. >>if, as avoter, you think whawe need is more republics in washington to cut a deal wi har reid d nancy pelosi a chuck schumer, i guess donald trump is your guy.
ma a deal because he's a strident guy.
