From the June 20 edition of CNN's CNN Newsroom:
DANA BASH (HOST): Corey, you're painting a very nice picture of the Trump campaign and the state of play. If it was that great, why wouldn't you still be the campaign manager?
COREY LEWANDOWSKI: I'm proud of the campaign. I really am. But I also understand the reality of building an infrastructure, coupled with the RNC's 500 people on the ground and all the resources necessary --
BASH: But why couldn't you be the person to do it? Why do you think that you were not the person to do it?
LEWANDOWSKI: Again, I don't know the answer to that. But what I know is --
BASH: What do you think?
LEWANDOWSKI: I know I've had a great privilege and an honor of being part of this for the last 18 or 19 months, and I have no regrets. And I'm so thankful for this chance, and I know that what I will do moving forward is share my advice of what I know with Mr. Trump and his team if they want it. I will still chair the New Hampshire delegation to the RNC convention next month, and I can tell you that me and every person that I know will continue to vote for and support Donald Trump in any way possible.
BASH: You're such a good soldier, and your loyalty here is exactly why, one of the main reasons why Mr. Trump kept you on for so long. But you've got to --
LEWANDOWSKI: It's not just loyalty. It's a true difference.
BASH: And belief in him. I get that. But I guess my question is, somebody tuning in to watch this might be thinking that they're on another planet because you're making it seem like everything was really great, and I get that that's your instinct because you've been so loyal to him, but it just doesn't make sense in a logical way. If things were that great, why you would not still be over at Trump Tower?
LEWANDOWSKI: Look, the campaign is moving in the right direction. That's the most important thing, and building up that campaign is something that is very important to do. And I can tell you again, I'll give any advice I can to the campaign, but at the end of the day, voters are going to have to make a choice. They're going to choose Hillary Clinton, or they're going to choose Donald Trump. And they've got to choose Trump if they want to save our country.
