Trump fired Lewandowski as his campaign manager in June 2016 as the then-candidate prepared to head into the general election. 

But Lewandowski remained an ardent supporter of Trump. After leaving the campaign, he went to work as a contributor for CNN, where he frequently defended the president on air. 

After Trump's election in November, Lewandowski left the network and started a lobbying and consulting firm in Washington. He left that firm in May.
