7:02 am
passengers and their belongings flying. >> reporter: this morning, authorities are trying to figure out what caused an amtrak train carrying 128 passengers and 14 crew to derail overnight in kansas. amtrak's southwest chief train was heading from oslos angeles to chicago when five of the nine cars derailed, leaving them twisted on the tracks. >> attention north ems and rescue, we have a train derailed. it's going to be approximately 3 1/2 miles west of cimarron. >> reporter: more than two dozen passengers were taken to hospitals, with nonlife threatening injuries. amtrak saying in part, all other passengers were transported to the 4-h recreation center and will be provided alternate transportation to their final destination. >> we spoke with one passenger
7:03 am
feel any sort of impact. he says it felt like the train just left the tracks. investigators will be out, working to determine a cause. in the meantime, trainsverted around that area. politics the other big story. 24 hours to go until voting against underway in five critical states. this morning, there is criticism surrounding donald trump's campaign after a weekend of chaos and violence at some of his rallies. we have coverage and analysis this morning. we're going to talk to dr. ben carson live about his endorsement of donald trump. let's start this morning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. good morning to you. >> savannah, good morning to you. this was an unprecedented weekend in terms of modern campaign politics. violence, protests, arrests, all of it at donald trump rallies. trump himself remains defiant, insisting he should get credit, not be scorned for his handling
7:04 am
>> reporter: campaign 2016 at a boiling point. >> get him out. >> reporter: donald trump's rallies, a magnet for clashes. the front runner with stepped up security after a violent weekend. >> do you accept any responsibility for creating this atmosphere? >> i don't accept responsible. i do not condone violence. >> reporter: vooiflrivals say the billionaire encouraged the hostility. >> it's not beneficial when you have a presidential candidate like trump telling his supporters, punch that guy in the face. >> donald trump has created a toxic environment. >> if he's our nominee, this is what our party will be defined by. >> reporter: echoed by hillary clinton clinton. >> he's encouraging violence and chaos to get votes. >> reporter: a series of rough episodes trailing trump from stop to stop. chicago, trump cancelling the rally there with brawling between protesters and supporters. dayton, ohio, secret service
7:05 am
protester rushed the stage. trump insisting the man had ties to isis. tweeting a link to this video. officials say there's no evidence that's the case. >> there's no law enforcement official claiming that, and this video appears to be a hoax. >> all i know is what's on the internet. >> reporter: the protester, 22-year-old tommy, charged with inducing panic and disorderly conduct, says the video is fake and he has no terrorist ties. >> no way, shape or form was i planning on touching him. not even to move him from the podium. just trying to get there and get my voice close to the microphone. >> reporter: trump is supporting a 78-year-old protester who erer erer -- supporter who punched a protester. >> i instructed my people to look into it. >> reporter: a new ad. >> donald trump, campaign violence. >> like to punch him in the face.
7:06 am
for "saturday night live." >> another incident of violence at a donald trump rally. apparently, the victim was this man, dr. ben carson. >> it's okay. i'm fine. >> guys, what did i say? not this one! >> ahead of super tuesday, tomorrow, donald trump according to our poll, leads in florida and illinois. in his home state, john kasich, the governor, has the advantage. up six points at this time. kasich will be joined on the trail by mitt romney today. romney's aid telle telling me, it's not an endorsement, just an effort to help defeat donald trump. >> peter alexander on the trail for us. thank you. former presidential candidate dr. ben carson endorsed donald trump on friday. dr. carson, nice to have you with us. good morning. >> good morning. nice to be with you. >> when you made your endorsement, you said you prayed
7:07 am
you were fillphilosophically and spirituality aligned with donald trump. i have to say, after watching you over the last several months on the campaign trail and seeing your demeanor and the way you handled yourself, that surprised me. >> well, i had an opportunity to actually spend significant time talking with him in private. i found out that he actually is a person who loves america greatly, thinks deeply and does have some openness to spiritual things, which is not the impression that you would get from looking at the persona on stage. >> you are so carefully spoken though. you choose your words so carefully and have been praised for the way you handle yourself. let me give you a little of donald trump in his own words. listen. >> like to punch him in the face. if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them. i promise you, i will pay for the legal fees.
7:08 am
little more violent. >> are you comfortable with that temperament in the oval office? >> that probably is not the way that i would handle it, but recognize that the people of america are at a different place than i'm at. they're really more at a place where donald trump is because they're so frustrated and they're angry and they're tired of people trying to manipulate them. i think you're seeing a magnetic phenomenon going on here because he actually represents where people are. now, does that mean that we need to stay at that place? no. it means that we need to work toward something very different. we the american people have to realize we are not each other's enemies. there are others out there, like radical islamic terrorists, who want to destroy us. those are the enemies. we have to focus on the real enemy here.
7:09 am
do you believe donald trump bears any responsibility for what has happened at some of the rallies? for example, him saying, i'd like to punch that protester in the face, and a few weeks later, someone at his rally actually punches someone in the face. trump says, i bear no responsible for this. do you agree, or do you think how he speaks and the tone he sets matters? >> well, again, i think we have a tendency to focus on the wrong thing there. the problem is that there are those who are being taught that if someone disagrees with you, you have the right to interfere with their first amendment rights, their ability to express themselves, their freedom of speech. that's where the emphasis needs to be. now, when people do things wrong, such as that, it causes other people to reaction in a way that is negative. therefore, you see that reaction. >> do you think mr. trump fanned
7:10 am
>> i think that this is a wonderful opportunity for mr. trump, for bernie sanders, for hillary clinton, the other candidates, to stand up and start talking to people about what first amendment rights are. why they're important as a part of the foundation of our country. >> real quickly, dr. carson, do you worry where this might lead if donald trump is the nominee of the republican party? do you see a general election season with escalating violence and words being used that are inflammatory like this? >> i think, certainly, if the protesters continue with their tactics, there is a real possibility of escalation. because those who are the choices. they can submit to them and meekly just do whatever those
7:11 am
they can fight back. if they decide to fight pack, there could be an escalation. >> dr. carson, thanks for your time this morning. we appreciate it. >> absolutely. let's turn to nicolle wallace, and also steve kornacki over at the board. we'll get to you and your maps in a moment, steve. nicolle, let's look at the last few days in the republican campaign. what's going on here? what does it say about our future? >> nothing very good. i worked for a president for eight years who was protested around the world, and never once did i hear him defend the violence on any side. i mean, the whole notion that republicans waited the last 48 hours to say the things they're saying about trump. as much responsibility lies with them than with the trump
7:12 am
>> i might look into paying the legal fees for a man who sucker punched a guy at a rally. it's extraordinary. >> it is extraordinary. dr. ben carson is so careful with his words. this is really going to become a referendum on the people now that have endorsed trump. chris christie is one of the first establishment figures to join his cause. we have ben carson, who ran one of the most civil campaigns for the presidency in history. it will not be to them, if donald trump comes off the campaign trail, as expected to do after tomorrow's results, if he can regroup and set a new tone, it will be an extraordinary test for his candidacy. >> stay there. we want to turn to steve, waiting patiently by the board. tomorrow is a huge day. consequential. even a chance the republican nomination could be wrapped up tomorrow. >> five big states, five big contests. a lot of things could happen. look at this, donald trump is the front runner. need 1,237, the magic delegate
7:13 am
now, he has 460. he's 100 ahead of ted cruz. the good news for donald trump, when you look at this, every single one of the states tomorrow is winnable for him. in the absolute best-case snare scenario for donald trump, he'll be at 750 delegates after tomorrow. kasich would be out of the race because he beats him in ohio. rubio out of the race because he beats him in florida. the bad news for donald trump, every one of the states is also potentially losable. >> does marco rubio have a chance in florida? >> that's a big question. there is a new poll out here, nbc poll, take a look. this is grim for marco rubio. we have been seeing this now for the last week. marco rubio in his home state, practically doubled up by donald trump, maybe losing to ted cruz. the real problem for rubio is this, when you look what happened over the weekend, you're saying, maybe it'll jog minds at the last minute and change the race. florida is an aggressive early
7:14 am
a lot of the votes are already locked in. if there is a last-minute surge, it may not be enough. >> our poll has kasich up by five points in ohio. thank you both so much. let's talk about severe weather in the south now. flooding is still very much a concern for thousands of residents. the rain has finally let up, but the rivers are still rising. nbc national correspondent miguelal al vamaguer is in louisiana. good morning to you. >> good morning. rescue teams worked late into the night trying to reach anyone who may have been trapped by the flood waters. they'll be at it again at first light. it was in arkansas where there was wild weather. several tornadoes touched down there. >> reporter: this morning, arkansas residents are assessing the latest damage. series of tornadoes sweeping through the state sunday. this mobile home lifted off its foundation. the family inside, including a
7:15 am
>> grabbed the mattress and held it over us. that was it. >> reporter: overnight, hail and lightning. in missouri, serious flooding. the start of a new week, and there's new misery through parts of the south. >> i'm hoping that it doesn't get a lot worse, but can't make any promises. >> reporter: fast-moving, historic storms dropped torrential downpours on this rain-ravaged region for days. in louisiana, at least 5,000 homes are damaged. roads and bridges washed away. cars and neighborhoods, swamped. in mississippi, near the swollen pearl river, hundreds of homes are still threatened. >> the river levels are high and nowhere for the water to go. >> reporter: the water is now receding, but only after the louisiana national guard rescued 3,300 people from flooded neighborhoods. even animals were ferried to safety. the most widespread,
7:16 am
this morning, the sabine river is surging. >> i've been doing this 26 years. this is the highest i've ever seen. >> reporter: across the river in texas, a town completely cut off. 1,200 residents ordered to evacuate. could be days before they get back home. across much of this region, the rain has finally stopped, but the threat isn't over yet. >> with the death toll feared to be at six, many rivers in the area are beginning to crest. the big question will be, can the levies and riverbanks hold back all of the water? the president declared a disaster in parts of louisiana. they'll need the federal funds to begin the cleanup process in this area. back to you. >> miguel, thank you very much. what's in store for the folks in the coming days? >> the good news is the rain ended but everything coming downstream will be a problem. severe weather into the
7:17 am
north carolina, between green point and durham, heavy rain caused big problems and major accidents. over 100 cars involved there. getting back to the flooding, you can see the areas, the diamonds in yellow, that's moderate flooding. the red areas, that is major flooding. the rain is moving away, but the mississippi is going to rise to major flood levels. the sabine river, which miguel talked about, now at 30.6. expected to tres atcrest at 32.2. that'll be a new record. continuing to rise through tomorrow. also severe weather will be pushing its way in greensboro, charlotte, raleigh. damaging winds and tornadoes possible possible. travel delays into the heavier storms. some of the heavier rain moves to the northeast later today. in the meantime, we are talking about the good news, no heavy rain. flood areas just have to get through the crests which will
7:18 am
horrific scene in turkey. a car bomb exploded in the middle of the country's capital city ankara. more than three dozen people killed, more than 100 injured. authorities are trying to figure out who was behind the attack. richard ageengel is in istanbul with the latest. >> good morning. the investigation is still underway, but police sources tell us that they have identified one of the bombers they think was responsible for the car bomb attack at a transportation hub in the center of ankara. most of the people killed were waiting to get on a bus at the time. the police sources say it was a young woman, university student, 24 years old, a kurdish woman with known ties to the pkk. the turkish government has been fighting a military campaign that has intensified against the pkk over the last several
7:19 am
two curfews have been imposed on kurdish villages in the wake of the attack. the kurdish militant group these attacks are justified, as a response, it says, to the military campaign against it. the attack has been condemned internationally. washington saying it stands strongly with its nato partner turkey. funerals for the nearly 40 people who were killed have already begun. >> richard engel, thank you. police in maryland are fallingfall ing -- calling the fatal shooting of an officer an unprovoked attack. it was in prince george county. officials say a gunman fired at the first officer he saw. that started a gun battle with police. the 28-year-old officer was shot and later died of his wounds. the suspect was arrested at a fast food restaurant nearby. a second suspect was taken into custody a short time later. wild scene in southern california overnight. a high speed chase between police and a suspect in the
7:20 am
the suspect at speeds of 100 miles per hour, weaving on and off freeways in the los angeles area. the chase came to a dramatic end when the driver pulls into an alley. officers pinned the car between their patrol units. police opened fire and the suspect was killed. officials did not say if the suspect fired at police. it's unclear how he managed to steal the patrol car in the first place. >> scary. mr. roker, back to you. >> show you nationally, we'll be looking at a few showers and thunderstorms here in the northeast. we're also going to be looking at more wet weather and snowy conditions in the pacific northwest i am never getting married. never. psssssh. guaranteed. you picked a beautiful ring. thank you. we're never having kids. mmm-mmm.m. breathe. i love it here. we are never moving to the suburbs. we are never getting one of those (minivan). we are never having another kid.

but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless youdoctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, andin rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you havean artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injectionwhile on eliquis call your doctor right away ifyou have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you maybruise more easily... and it may take longerthan usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care forsudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase yourbleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about allplanned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. look at this sweet face. so sweet.
