(FreedomJournal.com)- Corey Lewandowski, a long-time advisor of President Donald Trump, told Fox News on Thursday that the former president won’t be disappearing from the political scene…and he won’t be starting a third party.
Lewandowski confirmed that the former president will remain “actively involved” in the Republican Party and will also facilitate and support primary challenges against candidates that have not supported his Make America Great Again agenda or his fight for election integrity.
“The president continues to have enormous support and approval among Republican primary voters,” Lewandowski said. “He continues to have hundreds of millions of dollars in his campaign account, which he can utilize. And he will continue to be actively involved in recruiting candidates and holding elected officials accountable for their votes.”
Lewandowski managed President Trump’s primary campaign back in 2016 and was credited with helping the New York real estate mogul navigate the political landscape and win. He also served as a top adviser on the 2020 presidential campaign.
The former campaign manager confirmed that the president is committed to the Republican Party.
“I don’t think the president has any interest in being part of a third party,” he said.
Should the former president decide to launch a third party, however, he would immediately have a large support base.
A poll from Rasmussen Reports revealed this week that a majority of Republican voters (53%) believe that it is a good idea for President Trump to start a new political party. It’s a sign that much of the Republican base is angry with the party’s leadership, and the president’s commitment to the party will prove beneficial as GOP establishment figures lose support from voters.
Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, also recently denied all rumors of the president starting a new party.
“I’ve talked to the president. I’ve talked to others around the president, who are talking to him every day,” she said. “He’s not going to start a third party.”
The Associated Press also reported this week that beyond helping the Republican Party, should the former president choose to run again, the party would remain neutral.
“The party has to stay neutral,” McDaniel said in an interview. “I’m not telling anybody to run or not to run in 2024.!
