Lewandowski: Trump 'Doesn't Have Time to Slow Down'

Fox News' "Fox & Friends"

Washington doesn't understand how fast President Donald Trump wants to move, and Democrats are doing all they can to slow down the confirmation process to approve his slate of Cabinet nominees, former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Tuesday.

"He doesn't have time to slow down and wait for Congress to act on things," Lewandowski, now the co-owner of the Washington D.C. lobbying firm Avenue Strategies, told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "He wants to get it done today. You see him meeting with auto executives. Saw him meeting with labor industry members. That never happens this quickly."

Trump, said Lewandowski, is fulfilling his campaign promises, but "more importantly, he is trying to bring jobs back to our country. It's the top priority of this administration."

But with today's atmosphere and hyperpartisan politics, Democrats are doing all they can to slow down the confirmation process, said Lewandowski, and he doesn't understand that.

"These potential secretaries are going to be out creating jobs and helping America move forward," he said. "The president went to the CIA. He said let's get [Mike] Pompeo done. The next day, the first day of business in Washington on Monday following that Mr. Pompeo was confirmed as the next director of the Central Intelligence Agency."

Trump, he continued, is a "dealmaker" who wants to "bring people together for the good of the country."

When he brings you in and says we are going to create jobs for our people here, that's good for everybody," Lewandowski said.

The former campaign manager also said he believes the White House wants to have a good relationship with the media, but the media in return must be honest.

"What we have seen from exit polling and from research conducted after the election that most of the people believed that the media was biased against Donald Trump," he said. "However, fortunately, the Media Research Center reported that 97 percent of the people who voted didn't let the media's bias actually affect the outcome of their vote ... the media's job is not to make the news it's to report the news. Unfortunately, what we are seeing time and time again of these reporters is they are going out and they want to be the news story. That's different. That's not how it should be."
