Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski applauded President-elect Donald Trump's speech in Fayetteville, N.C., which was part of his 'thank you' tour.

Lewandowski said the speech, which included an appearance by secretary of defense nominee Gen. James 'Mad Dog' Mattis [Ret.], was "a home run".

"I think this [thank-you tour idea] is so smart-- Seeing the people and reminding them that the power is not in Washington, but out in the states [and] saying 'thank you' for the support they gave Donald Trump in this election."

He commended Trump's promise to keep the American military the "best fighting force" this country has seen.

Lewandowski also said it is again appropriate to say "Merry Christmas" in America again, an apparent reference to some critics who have said that the Obama administration has secularized some aspects of holidays.

"It's not a pejorative word anymore," he said.
