"I think we're fixing it, I guarantee you that won't happen again with her, that's for sure. And it won't likely happen with anybody else," Sam Clovis told CNN's "New Day."
"When you do go out, you have a responsibility. ... I think it's important to come on here and have accurate information," Clovis said.
While aides want to be as assertive as possible, he said, "I think facts always help you, the truth always helps you and I think that's always where we ought to be."
Clovis, Trump's national campaign co-chairman and policy advisor, was referring to campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson's CNN appearance Wednesday.
Pierson admitted she erred in blaming President Obama for the 2004 death of a soldier in Iraq before Obama was elected. But she also inflated the number of wounded soldiers during Obama's tenure.
"Since then, we have had tens of thousands of soldiers that have been lost, 1 million wounded, $6 trillion later. How can we possibly put any of the onus on Donald Trump?" she said.
CNN noted that according to the Department of Defense, there have been 4,424 U.S. military members killed in Iraq and 31,392 wounded between 2003 and 2010. There were another 2,349 killed and 20,072 wounded during the war in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2014.
"Staggering numbers," CNN's Alisyn Camerota said, "but they're not in the millions."
"I don't know where Katrina gets her information," Clovis said. "Facts are important to me and I do my own research."
He said he wasn't "throwing Katrina under the bus," but didn't see her report.
Trump's campaign has often been accused of playing loose with facts. At times it has led to controversy, such as when Trump shared a graphic in November that included inaccurate crime statistics focused on racial groups.
