Trump vs Breitbart

Donald Trump is still defending controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski

Donald Trump continued to defend campaign manager Corey Lewandowski Tuesday after he was charged with misdemeanor battery over allegations that he grabbed now ex-Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields at a March 8 press conference. While surveillance footage captured from the event seemingly corroborates Fields' allegations that Lewandowski grabbed her and nearly pulled her to the ground after she tried to ask Trump a question, Trump says that the tapes show that nothing happened.

After defending his "very decent" campaign manager, Trump took another shot at Fields' credibility, which he and Lewandowski have both already called into question.

Fields was quick to respond, defending the consistency of her story.

Lewandowski reportedly turned himself over to police Tuesday morning. He maintains that he is "absolutely innocent of this charge."
