Lewandowski: Most Americans Don't Want Trump to Change

President-elect Donald Trump is a "counter puncher," but most people don't want him to change, his first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said Monday.

"Whether you are one of the 63 million people that voted for Donald Trump or you weren't, the bottom line is our country is stronger when we're united," Lewandowski told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program, while pointing out the president-elect has been surrounding himself with the "best and brightest" people the country has to offer while picking his cabinet.

"They have reached the pinnacle of their respective careers, whether it's Dr. [Ben] Carson or Linda McMahon or whoever it may be," said Lewandowski. "These are some the greatest people our country has to offer he has brought them in to negotiate on behalf of our country.

"Did we run unconventional campaign? You bet we did. Will it change the way politics moves forward? I hope."

Lewandowski, who was replaced as head of the Trump campaign last summer, said he is excited and "really humbled" that he had a role helping Trump get elected, and even though Trump has brought back many jobs already, it's been "anything but smooth sailing" since the election.

"Whether it's [FBI Director] James Comey, whether it's the Russians, whether it's Democrats urging electors not to vote the way they are supposed to, whether it's Jill Stein saying 'I want a recount in these whether blue states,' which didn't pan out, every day he has to fight for the legitimacy of his win," said Lewandowski.

The former campaign manager went on to call comments Georgia Rep. John Lewis made concerning the legitimacy of Trump's presidency "disappointing," as they were made in a pre-taped interview, and called for bringing "everyone together for a change."

"The bottom line is Russia had nothing to do with the outcome of this election," said Lewandowski. "People can say anything they want to. President [Barack] Obama himself has said that this couldn't happen. Hillary Clinton has said it now they don't like the outcome. The limousine liberals.

"People fly in private planes complain about global warming and complain about Donald Trump. Take their efforts, unify the country for a change and say in four years from now maybe you should go out and campaign harder if you don't like the election results."
