Trump stands by his man over as­sault

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Don­ald Trump has vowed to stand by his cam­paign man­ager who has been charged with sim­ple bat­tery fol­low­ing an al­ter­ca­tion with a re­porter that was caught on video. Corey Le­wandowski, po­lit­i­cal ad­viser to the Repub­li­can front-run­ner in the race for the White House, has been or­dered to ap­pear in a Florida court on May 4 on a mis­de­meanour charge. Police charged Le­wandowski af­ter re­view­ing a sur­veil­lance video of the in­ci­dent, ob­tained from se­cu­rity at the Trump- owned prop­erty, which shows Le­wandowski grab­bing Michelle Fields, as she tried to ask Trump a ques­tion. But Trump said: “I’m not go­ing to let a per­son’s life be de­stroyed. No jury would con­vict a man on what you wit­nessed. She grabbed me. Do I press charges.?”
