Trump announced today (Monday) that he has decided to part ways with his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski. Lewandowski led Trump to a stunning victory, as the candidate received almost 14 million votes during the Republican primary.
“Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” said the campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, in a statement. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.” According to the New York Times, the decision was made in preparation for the next phase of his campaign, the general election.
Recently, Trump has suffered a drop in the polls and been criticized about his controversial remarks- also from within the Republican Party. Trump’s campaign workers were recently told that they need to work to bring the Republican Party together and hire new staff members for the race against Hillary Clinton.
