Lewandowski: White House lacks 'top political operative' ahead of 2018 elections

Lewandowski and Bossie offered their candid assessment of the Trump presidency

Bossie and Lewandowski, out with a new book on the campaign, “Let Trump be Trump” said they wrote the book to pull back the curtain on the historic campaign.

“The president loves to get lots of information from lots of people he loves that. The general has taken a different tack, and he has buttoned up the building and the management style. I think the president has taken to it and I think that they’re working as a great team it seems,” Bossie said.

Lewandowski said that Kelly has “brought order from chaos” but said the White House still lacks a top political mind to make key decisions.

When former FBI Director Comey testified in July 2016 in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, he was asked if Clinton lied to the FBI, to which he responded, “I have no basis for concluding that she was untruthful with us.”

The two also had plenty to say about what it was like to work for Donald Trump on the campaign trail, and the stamina the candidate showed and asked of his staff.

"He never complained about how many times we asked him to do things or sign things or take pictures, he just did it," Lewandowski said, "He asks the staff to be as good as him, he doesn't ask us to be better, he says be as good as me. Work as hard as I do."

“We wanted to change the conversation, we wanted to remind the American people that Bill Clinton was an abuser of women while he was in the White House,” Bossie said, “It was a calculation for us to try and get in the Clinton camp’s head, and really I think it worked.”
