Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager Turns Himself in to Police
quit their jobs as protest. Now, however, Lewandowski admits that he did grab Fields, despite previously tweeting that she was “delusional” and that he never met her.— Michelle Fields (@MichelleFields) March 10, 2016
A video released by the Jupiter, Florida police department supports Fields’ story that she was forcibly grabbed. In her claim, she wrote that she went to ask Trump a question as he wandered around talking to journalists, but “before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.” Trump himself also supported Lewandowski’s claims that Fields was out of line, saying that Lewandowski is a “very decent man.”
@MichelleFields you are totally delusional. I never touched you. As a matter of fact, I have never even met you.— Corey R. Lewandowski (@CLewandowski_) March 11, 2016
Wow, Corey Lewandowski, my campaign manager and a very decent man, was just charged with assaulting a reporter. Look at tapes-nothing there!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2016
Trump has been under fire a lot lately for sexist behavior as he tweeted a photo making fun of Ted Cruz’s wife.
Why aren't people looking at this reporters earliest statement as to what happened, that is before she found out the episode was on tape?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2016
On Tuesday night, Trump also confirmed he would not support another G.O.P. nominee if it isn’t himself.
