Key loyalists to Donald Trump oppose any move by the president-elect to put his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in any administration leadership role.

Politico reports that about a dozen Trump allies and other top Republicans are lining up against any key Lewandowski appointment in the Trump administration. They cite his tendency for "bitter in-fighting and aggressive behavior."

Coupled with his "contentious relationship with the incoming president's family and close confidants," they say it could damage the Trump administration before it takes over the White House, Politico notes.

Still, Lewandowski is under consideration for either deputy chief of staff for strategic planning or even chairman of the Republican National Committee, sources tell Politico.

"Corey has a problem because he has made so many enemies," a strategist working on Trump's presidential transition told Politico.

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Trump's influential son-in-law Jared Kushner played big roles in Lewandowski's firing as campaign manager in June, Politico reports.

"The kids, the son-in-law and the new leadership — they don't like Corey," Politico quotes an insider who worked with Lewandowski on the campaign. "They think he's a loose cannon and a distraction, and they don't give him credit for anything that happened early in the campaign."

Lewandowski resigned from his role as a CNN political analyst on Friday and spent part of the morning with the incoming president, New York Magazine reports.

The magazine said it was just one of several visits since the election that Lewandowski has made to Trump Tower in New York City — where the presidential transition team has been meeting.
