Lewandowski: Trump Staffers Who Don't Support Him 'Should Not Be There'

Those in President Donald Trump's administration who do not support his agenda "should not be there," according to Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager.

"Any person who serves in this administration — whether it's in the White House or in some other department — that isn't fully supporting the president's agenda should not be there. It's very simple," Lewandowski said Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America."

"And if you don't think that the president's agenda is the right agenda, then you have the prerogative as a staff member to leave at your earliest convenience," he said.

Interviewer George Stephanopoulos asked if there was a "loyalty problem" inside the White House, referring to reports of bickering staff members in a Wednesday Washington Post report.

"There are a number of people who the president is next to who are exceptionally loyal to him," Lewandowski said.

The former manager slammed any staff member who leaks information to the press.

"You should be fired, candidly, if you're speaking to the press outside of the course of the individuals who are authorized to speak to the press,"

Lewandowski was removed as Trump's campaign manager in June 2016. On Wednesday, Politico reported that Trump was considering bringing Lewandowski back on board to "bring order" to Trump's bickering staffers.

However, in the "Good Morning America" interview, Lewandowski said he would only be returning to the Trump staff as a "visitor."
