President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski Wednesday denied the administration's changes are a sign of chaos, but are instead what happens following midterm elections.
"It's a very natural point after a midterm election for presidents to change out members of their cabinet and members of the senior staff," Lewandowski told Fox News' "Fox & Friends."
"I remember when Barack Obama changed out [Attorney General] Eric Holder for Loretta Lynch. His administration wasn't in chaos."
Lewandowski also noted that Obama fired outgoing Defense Secretary James Mattis "unceremoniously" when he removed him as head of Central Command, and said the "media doesn't want to dwell" on the fact that there have been U.S. troops in Syria for "2,388 days."
"The president wants to remove those trips from Syria and bring them home, and he and general Mattis had a fundamental disagreement about that," said Lewandowski. "This president campaigned on less U.S. intervention around the globe and bringing our men and women who serve in uniform home so he can protect our homeland."
He also defended Trump's stance on a border wall, saying there is "no more important issue" than protecting the borders.
"If we cannot secure our borders, then we are not a nation at all," said Lewandowski.
"This is something, candidly, the Democrats voted for many, many times. They want to politicize this issue. They don't want to give the president the win which he deserves. There is no more important issue to me than making sure we have a secure nation."
