Donald Trump's axed campaign manager Cory Lewandowski leapt to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's defense on Monday over a new ad produced by Hillary Clinton's campaign, The Hill
The ad attacks Trump for his recent trip to Scotland to visit his golf resorts: "Every president is tested by world events, but Donald Trump thinks about how his golf resort can profit from them," the narrator says.
"It's about authenticity and what you have with Hillary Clinton is she's put an ad out which is completely false," retorted Lewandowski in an appearance on CNN, where he was recently hired as a political commentator. "Donald Trump was not playing golf, as she alluded to in that ad."
The ad focuses on the economic fallout of the United Kingdom's referendum to leave the European Union, and criticizes Trump for backing the Leave campaign and for focusing on how the decision would increase business for his golf courses.
"If the pound goes down, they'll do more business. I think places like Scotland and England, I think you're going to see a lot of activity. I think it could well turn out to be a positive," Trump said from his Turnberry golf resort.
quotes Clinton, who spoke at the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Indianapolis on Sunday, as saying that America needs leaders "who understand that bombastic comments in turbulent times can actually cause more turbulence. And who put the interests of the American people ahead of their personal business interests."
