Donald Trump looks likely to run for president again in 2024.
But there was a major hitch in that step.
Now Donald Trump made one huge 2024 decision that had all hell breaking loose.
Corey Lewandowski served as Donald Trump’s original campaign manager in 2016.
Trump replaced Lewandowski before the general election, but eventually welcomed Lewandowski back into the fold.
Lewandowski was set to play a key role in Trump’s 2024 campaign leading MAGA Action – the pro-Trump Super PAC that can accept unlimited campaign donations.
But all that ended when Republican donor Trashelle Odom told POLITICO that Lewandowski allegedly inappropriately touched her leg and buttock, made lewd comments and stalked her at a fundraiser in Las Vegas.
“On the evening of September 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada, I attended a dinner to support a charity and spend time with wonderful friends,” Odom told POLITICO. “He repeatedly touched me inappropriately, said vile and disgusting things to me, stalked me, and made me feel violated and fearful,” she said, referring to Lewandowski.
“I am coming forward because he needs to be held accountable,” Odom added. “I am blessed to have a loving husband and family behind me. I want other women to know that you can be heard, too, and together we can stop terrible things like this from happening.”
Odom alleged this conduct happened in view of her husband and POLITICO reported four individuals that witnessed the conduct confirmed Odom’s allegations.
Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich tweeted out that Trump exiled Lewandowski and that former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi would now lead Trump’s Super PAC.
“Pam Bondi, the very talented and honorable frmr AG of FL, has our complete faith and confidence in taking over MAGA Action. Corey Lewandowski will be going on to other endeavors and we very much want to thank him for his service. He will no longer be associated with Trump World,” Budowich posted on social media.
Odom’s allegations appeared the same day the website American Greatness published a story alleging that multiple sources claimed Lewandowski and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem carried on a months-long affair despite the fact that both were married.
Noem denied the charge and after POLITICO published Odom’s allegations Noem announced Lewandowski would no longer serve as an unpaid advisor to the South Dakota governor.
“Corey was always a volunteer, never paid a dime (campaign or official). He will not be advising the Governor in regard to the campaign or official office,” Noem’s communications director Ian Fury told Breitbart.
Corey Lewandowski was always a controversial figure in Trump’s world.
Never Trump reporter Michelle Fields wanted to press charges against Lewandowski for grabbing her wrist at an event during the 2016 primaries.
Trump pushed out Lewandowski when there were questions about his ability to guide Trump to the nomination leading Paul Manafort to take over the campaign.
Lewandowski eventually worked his way back into Trump’s good graces.
But those days appear over.
