Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, let go of Lewandowski after a series of meetings between the campaign's top officials.

Lewandowski praised Trump on his way out, saying it had been an "honor and a privilege to be part of" his campaign.

He also said he would do whatever he could to help Trump win the White House, even without his formal role within the campaign.

After Lewandowski was fired, Trump said he had done a "great job," but that the campaign was going to go in a "little bit of a different route."
