Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump shocked everyone on Monday by revealing that he has parted ways with his longtime campaign manager 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,” campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement, according to the New York Times. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”
This comes as Trump has faced concerns about the next phase of his campaign from allies and donors alike. In the last few weeks, Trump has seen his poll numbers drop rapidly as his opponent Hillary Clinton has released a barrage of ads attacking him.
One Trump insider who asked not to be identified told reporters that the campaign had long planned adjustments to the needs of a general election campaign. The source said the campaign’s main goal now is to bring the party together and make moves including hiring new staff members and adjusting to the campaign’s needs for the race against Mrs. Clinton.
