Fired campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is predicting Donald Trump will double the size of his campaign in the next month — and that he aims to be the first Republican to win New York since Ronald Reagan.

In a speech at a fundraiser Tuesday night, Lewandowski — just a day after his bombshell exit — told attendees he expects a Trump campaign hiring spree that'll add 100-150 staffers, The Guardian reports, citing an unnamed person who was in the room.

Sources have previously pegged the campaign at a skeletal 70 staffers, according to the Guardian.

Lewandowski's remarks at the New York Athletic Club to the state party's Empire Club conceded the election map looks tough for the GOP presumptive nominee, but insisted the campaign would carry New York and other blue states that haven't gone GOP since 1988 — Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Connecticut — by winning over former Democrats.

No Republican presidential candidate has won New York since Reagan; President Barack Obama won 63 percent of the New York vote in 2012.

Lewandowski also bashed former presidential candidate Scott Walker for giving "rehearsed speeches" as well as candidates who spoke "broken Spanish," the unnamed source tells the Guardian.

The former campaign manager also condemned Democrats for "hating us and our way of life," and practices and conflicts of interest at the Clinton Foundation, the unnamed source said.
