The day's top national and international news.
Donald Trump's and Hillary Clinton's big wins in the New York primary mean it's going to be much harder to stop the two front-runners from winning the nominations, according to NBC News' First Read team.
That could be especially true after next week's contests in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. On the Democratic side, Clinton's gains in New York all but erased her losses in Alaska, Idaho and Wisconsin. She needs to win just 29 percent of remaining delegates to hit the Democratic magic number of 2,383, while Sanders needs to win 71 percent.
Meanwhile, Trump is on a stronger path to a majority than he was two weeks ago. He needs to win 57 percent of remaining delegates to hit that magic 1,237 number -- down from the 61 percent he needed before last night.
