Is Corey Lewandowski's firing a turning point for the Trump campaign? | The Tylt
Donald Trump and his campaign are pivoting away from his long-time and controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
The move comes after a brutal few weeks for Trump, who has faced criticism for a seeming lack of interest in campaigning, as well as several tone deaf statements made in the wake of the Orlando attack. The move leaves Paul Manafort—a more traditional establishment figure—in charge of the Trump campaign.
Is this a turning point for the Trump campaign?

Dropping Lewandowski is the clearest sign Trump knows he's sinking. Stood by him through battery charges and turf wars with Manafort.— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) June 20, 2016
There's hope Manafort will manage Trump better and have more influence over what Trump says. Lewandowski's motto was "let Trump be Trump".— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) June 20, 2016
We got two versions of the Lewandowski firing:— L.O.M.P.E. (@Lompemann) June 20, 2016
1) Ivanka/Hicks pressure
2) Manafort camp conflict
Unclear who's pushing either narrative.
Paul Manafort is not going to be able to control Trump. He's been trying to for months.. Trump sided with Lewandowski every. Single. Time.— Ed Oswald (@edoswald) June 20, 2016
So Lewandowski was the Trump campaign manager who had all sorts of trouble all along this past year. Trump brought in Manafort as a 'pro'— Tomi Ahonen (@tomiahonen) June 20, 2016
