Lewandowski says it's 'natural' for officials to leave White House after midterms

Former Trump campaign manager Corey LewandowskiCorey LewandowskiNew Trump super PAC formed after accusations of misconduct The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Alibaba - Democrats still at odds over Biden agenda Noem severs ties with Lewandowski after harassment allegations surface MORE said Tuesday it is natural for some White House officials to leave their posts after the midterm elections. 

"I think there is a natural progression for individuals who work in the White House, which is an extremely tiring place to work, to leave after the midterms, or make the decision that they're going to stay until the reelection is over, which really puts them in a two year period," Lewandowski told Hill.TV's John Solomon.

"You'll see some members of the Cabinet leave, some natural transition of staff, and I think that's a good thing for the president to get new ideas and new people around him sometimes," he continued. 

Lewandowski's comments come as Republicans brace for a Democratic takeover in the House, and as both parties prepare for 2020.

Trump acknowledged publicly at a campaign rally last week that Republicans could end up losing the House in the midterms. 

It could happen. Could happen. We're doing very well, and we're doing really well in the Senate, but could happen," Trump said. 

The White House announced on Tuesday that Trump and his family were watching election results from the White House. 

CNN reported late Tuesday that the mood was "good" at the White House election party.
