Trump vs Breitbart

Trump's campaign dismisses Breitbart reporter's rough-housing accusations as 'entirely false'

Donald Trump's campaign finally responded to Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields' accusation that campaign manager Corey Lewandowski yanked her to the ground while she attempted to ask a question at a press conference Tuesday night.

While Fields says that The Washington Post's Ben Terris identified Lewandowski as the man who grabbed her "tightly by the arm and yanked [her] down," nearly taking her to the ground, Trump campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks said in a statement Thursday afternoon that neither Fields nor Terris has ever met Lewandowski and that no one else at the event seemed to have noticed the incident:

Fields offered her take on the incident earlier Thursday, calling Lewandowski's behavior "out of line" and insisting that she "never sought to be part of the story."
