Trump Defends Campaign Manager, Lewandowski: He “Didn’t Touch” Protester, “I Give Him Credit for Having Spirit”

Donald Trump today finally received a question about his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski from ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

After allegations of past abusive behavior, in the past week-plus, Trump hadn’t been asked about his campaign manager once.

But with video yesterday showing Lewandowski grabbing a protester, Stephanopoulos finally asked him about it today, after Trump went off on “professional agitators” at his rallies.

Stephanopoulos asked, “Why is your campaign manager out in the crowd engaging protesters?” Trump said the police were “a little bit lax.”

He went on to say Lewandowski “didn’t touch the protester.”

Trump even said, “I give him credit for having spirit. He wanted to take down those horrible, profanity-laced signs.”
