BREAKING: BREAKUP! Trump Dumps Controversial Campaign Boss

This is coming in via the New York Times this morning: Corey Lewandowski is out of the Trump campaign, and they have wished him well in his future endeavors.

“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,” the campaign spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said in a statement. “The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”

Mr. Trump had faced increasing concerns from allies and donors, as well as his children, about the next phase of the campaign as he pivots toward a general election.

There is speculation that Lewandowski got himself fired after he went out of his way to block some folks from being hired in an effort to consolidate his power. His firing leaves Paul Manafort essentially in charge of rebuilding/restructuring the campaign leading up to what could very well still be a contentious election.
