Trump: 'Disgraceful' for Obama to Call for U.S. to Be More Open to Refugees


Donald Trump forcefully denied any wrongdoing by his campaign manager, who was charged with misdemeanor battery on Tuesday stemming from an incident involving former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.

The arrest report from the Jupiter, Florida Police Department said Corey Lewandowski was charged for grabbing and bruising Fields' arm at a Trump campaign event on March 8.

Trump stood by Lewandowski during an impromptu press conference on his jet in Wisconsin, saying he was acting as an "intermediary" after Fields grabbed Trump inappropriately.

"I told him...'You should never settle this case. You should go all the way,'" Trump said. "I think they've really hurt a very good person."

Earlier, he took to Twitter to defend Lewandowski:

Lewandowski is due in court on May 4, with authorities releasing a new overhead surveillance tape of the incident.

The Trump campaign has also released a statement:

Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge. He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated.

Mr. Lewandowski is represented by Scott Richardson of The Law Office of Scott N. Richardson, P.A. in West Palm Beach, and Kendall Coffey of Coffey Burlington in Miami.

Inquiries are to be directed to Mr. Richardson's office.

At the time, Fields tweeted a photo of a bruise on her arm after Lewandowski tweeted that she was "delusional" to make the assault allegation.

Fields outlined her allegations a few days later in an interview with Megyn Kelly and shortly thereafter, she resigned from Breitbart, accusing the website of not supporting her.
