"Paul actually gets along very well with Corey," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
 
"They have separate functions," Trump added.
  
The businessman dismissed a report from Politico on Tuesday that said Trump had shifted some of Manafort's responsibilities back to Lewandowski amid increasing tension behind the scenes.
 
Trump was reportedly upset by Manafort's comments to members of the Republican National Committee last week when he said that Trump was playing a "part" and would eye shifting to a more presidential persona.
 
Trump has since said that he doesn't want to change his brash style, telling CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday morning that he wants to maintain some flexibility.
 
"I may tone it up or I may tone it down," he said.
 
Lewandowski has also publicly said, "I'd never want to change Donald Trump."
 
"Paul has done a really good job," Trump said on MSNBC, arguing his aides get along well. "The only time they don't is when a phony paper like Politico writes a story," Trump added, describing the story as "so false."

Trump referenced his campaign strategy during his victory speech Tuesday night after sweeping five primary contests in the Northeast, including top-prize Pennsylvania. 

"Why would I change? If you have a football team and you are winning and you get to a Super Bowl, you don’t change your quarterback," Trump remarked. 

"There really is harmony behind the scenes," Trump insisted during another interview Wednesday morning on "Fox and Friends," adding of his aides, "They get along great."
