Trump to NBC’s Lauer on Lewandowski: ‘Minor’ Compared to Beheadings, Drowning in Middle East

Wednesday on NBC’s Today, Republican presidential front-runner fielded questions from NBC’s “Today” co-host Matt Lauer about the unfolding saga involving his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who was charged on Tuesday with misdemeanor battery for an incident involving former Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields at a Jupiter, FL, campaign event on March 6.

Trump continued to defend Lewandowski, as he had a night earlier at the CNN town hall and described it as “minor” compared to what was going on in the Middle East.

“When you look at this, it was so minor,” Trump said. “We have people in the Middle East chopping off heads and drowning people in cages — and he brushes her. He brushed her to get — probably to get her hand off of my arm. So it was so minor. He might not have even realized it took place.”
