Trump has a history of encouraging violence at his rallies and told his supporters to “knock the crap out” of any demonstrators they saw. He also said of one protester: “I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya.”
Around twenty to thirty students protested Lewandowski’s appearance outside the Oxford University on Wednesday venue with chants of “no borders, no nation, stop the deportation”, “No Trump, no KK, no fascist USA” and “Dump Trump, dump Corey and their pet the fucking Tories”. Another protester inside the hall unfurled a sign and shouted at Lewandowski before being escorted out by security.
Lewandowski told the meeting that during the entire time he worked on Trump’s campaign he “never saw him sleep” and noted the power of the president-elect’s Twitter account. “I think Donald Trump is the single hardest woking individual I have ever met in my life,” he added.
“At no time if he sent a tweet would it not appear on the news. Donald Trump could be in his pajamas and be tweeting something and CNN or Fox would say ‘we have breaking news Donald Trump has just tweeted that he is in his pajamas watching our show’. Wow that’s powerful,” Lewandowski said.
“Going to aTrump rally was like going to a soccer match. why do you go? Because you don;t know what’s going to happen,” he said. “We used the media in the sense they carried our message beyond the people in those audiences.”
Questioned on Trump’s policy platform including the proposal to build a wall along the US-Mexican border, Lewandowski insisted “Mexico will pay for the wall”. And dismissed environmental conerns. “I do not believe in global warming,” he said. “Do I believe it’s a scam? Yes I do.”
In April, prosecutors decided not to prosecute Lewandowski on charges of battery against a female reporter. Trump’s former campaign manager said on Wednesday while he had touched Michelle Fields, formerly of Breitbart News, “there was no assault”.
