Lewandowski on Trump: ‘Never Have I Heard Him Use a Racist Word’

In light of former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claims of President Donald Trump repeatedly using the “n-word,” former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski vehemently defended the president.

Lewandowski said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that in all the time he spent with Trump, he had never “heard him use a racist word.”

“I have been around President Trump a long time, thousands of hours,” Lewandowski said. “Never have I heard him use a racist word, never have I heard him use a racist phrase.”
