Trump Campaign Statement to the New York Times Regarding Corey Lewandowski

“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign.

"The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”

Trump is the Problem, Not his Staff

DNC National Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach issued the following statement on news that Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has been fired:

“Corey Lewandowski is not the problem, it’s Donald Trump. It wasn’t Corey Lewandowski who called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States, it was Donald Trump. It wasn’t Corey Lewandowski who disparaged a federal judge born in Indiana because his parents were ‘Mexican’, it was Donald Trump. Today’s shuffling of staff does nothing to make up for  Trump’s divisive and racist comments and policies. It does reinforce, however, that there’s no one Trump won’t throw overboard for his own personal benefit, just as he’s done his entire life.”
