Trump: ‘Nonsense’ to Say My Children Pushed Lewandowski Out

Donald Trump Tuesday morning denied reports that he fired Corey Lewandowski as his campaign manager because of the demands of his family members — especially daughter Ivanka Trump — insisting that the reports were “all nonsense” and that Lewandowski was released because the campaign is “going in a different direction.”

“Ivanka has great respect for him and so does my family,” the presumptive GOP nominee told NBC’s “Today” show. “She likes Corey. And I read all these reports about the children, and about all of this. It’s all nonsense.”
