CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski on Sunday said NBC News reporter Katy Tur used her job covering Donald Trump’s presidential campaign to get a book deal.

{mosads}Tur, who has been a frequent target of the GOP presidential nominee, on Sunday tweeted a link to a video of a videographer being harassed by Trump supporters during one of the GOP nominee’s campaign rallies.

“That’s CNN embed @NoahGrayCNN who Corey Lewandowski threatened to blacklist if he didn’t stay in the ‘pen’ last year,” Tur tweeted.

In response, Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, slammed the NBC News reporter after she called him out on Twitter.

@KatyTurNBC I’m sure you will be able to write all about me in your new book,” Lewandowski tweeted.

“Another unbiased journalist who used her job to get book deal!”

During a campaign rally last week, the GOP nominee singled out Tur as he railed on the media for its alleged dishonesty and bias.

“We have massive crowds. There’s something happening,” Trump told the audience.

“They’re not reporting it. Katy, you’re not reporting it, Katy. But there’s something happening, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy.”

In response, journalists rallied around Tur, sparking the hashtag “#ImWithTur.”

Trump has targeted the NBC News reporter at previous campaign events, calling her “little Katy” and a “third-rate reporter.”
