COREY LEWANDOWSKI: The incident that was discussed was not directed at a child or individual. It was directed at a left-wing activist who was trying to use a child as a political tool, and he was inaccurate because he said that child was separated from her mother because of the Trump policies. But the truth was that 10-year-old that was separated at the border was separated because her mother was a member, or a potential member, of a child smuggling ring.
JOHN BERMAN (CO-HOST): OK, Corey.
LEWANDOWSKI: So let's get the facts straight.
BERMAN: I let you talk, all I was asking was whether or not you thought that "womp womp" was the right response to that. I just wanted to know if you had any regrets about it now. Is the answer no?
LEWANDOWSKI: No, John, the answer is it wasn't directed at a child. My statement on that specifically was directed at a left-wing Democratic activist who's trying to use a child as a political tool, and I was appalled by that.
