Trump campaign manager is out
NEW YORK - Donald Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is leaving the campaign, following a tumultuous stretch marked by missteps and infighting.
Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said Monday that "Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign." She paid tribute to his "hard work and dedication" and wished him the best.
A hard-charging figure, and in some ways as unconventional as the candidate himself, Lewandowski had been by Trump's side since the beginning of his unlikely rise to presumptive GOP nominee.
The move came as Trump faces continued deep resistance from many quarters of his party concerned by his contentious statements.
