President Donald Trump's staff has been of little help in his first month in office due to their lack of experience, said Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
"The staff has probably not prepared him as well as they could have or should have," Lewandowski told David Axelrod on the "Axe Files" podcast Sunday.
He noted that no members of Trump's senior staff have worked "inside the government" before and hopes the president's staff can take lessons from the first month.
"What I think you'll see moving forward, hopefully, is a measured approach… making sure that you have vetted (policy) properly," with Congress and within his administration, Lewandowski said.
The former campaign manager said that one way to help Trump keep his plans moving is to focus on his economic message, including jobs, trade deals, border security, and affordable health care.
"That's the story he has to tell, and everything else is a diversion," Lewandowski said.
Regarding contact with Russia, Lewandowski said he knew of no contacts between any Russian operatives and the Trump campaign while he was on staff there.
If anyone gave information to a foreign power, "I hope they're held accountable," Lewandowski added.
Also on Sunday, Lewandowski appeared on ABC News' "This Week," and said he knew no one in the campaign had made contact with Russia.
"None whatsoever," he said.
