President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski did not deny reports that he is being considered for a White House job during a Wednesday night interview.
Lewandowski appeared on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" and was asked about the reports.
"The only time I go to the White House is as a guest. As a visitor. Sometimes I take my family with me," Lewandowski said. "But let me be very clear, my loyalty is to the president and the agenda he ran on.
"If I can help the president do that, of course [I would return to his team]."
Lewandowski ran Trump's campaign from its inception in June 2015 until his ouster from the team about a year later. He founded a consulting firm with an office near the White House after Trump won the election and has offered potential clients face time with the president and other top government officials, Politico reported last month.
Lewandowski said he recently got off a plane and was inundated with phone calls after a story was published that claimed Trump was bringing him onboard in a crisis management role.
"Don't believe everything you read in the fake news," said Lewandowski, who never actually denied the validity of the reports.
Lewandowski was more candid when he was asked about the stream of leaks coming out of the White House. After saying the leakers need to be discovered and held accountable, he added, "And move them out as quickly as possible. There is a deep state that does not support this president."
Trump's staff "has to do everything possible" to work on filling the 4,000 presidential appointment slots throughout the government, he added. "People need to be brought in who are loyal to the president."
