“What you have is a candidate who has a broad appeal to working class people because he has talked about cutting taxes for the middle class, which I think that is something that is desperately needed,” Lewandowski said. “He has also talked about renegotiating bad trade deals; he has talked about cutting our national deficit so we are not burning our children or our grandchildren moving forward.”

Lewandowski discussed what Trump meant, when he said that he is looking for a political person as vice president.

“I think the important thing is when you have a President Trump, you want someone who is going to be a partner with him, that’s going to help him achieve the legislative agenda which he has set forth. In order to do that you need someone who fully understands Washington,” he said.

Lewandowski then discussed what all of the potential candidates for vice president have in common.

“He is looking at a number of people right now. I know he has talked about five or six that might be on that list. I think it is fair to say that all of those people have had elected office experience at one level or another,” he said.
