WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has parted ways with his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, the New York Times reported on Monday.

“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in a statement provided to the newspaper.

Lewandowski, who has been with the New York billionaire since the beginning of his White House bid, was accused of manhandling a female reporter in Florida during the primary campaign.
