According to Trump, he has photos showing former Brietbart reporter Michelle Fields grabbed him first and that Lewandowski, who turned himself in this morning after being charged with battery was “trying to block her.”
“She’s grabbing me and asked me questions. She’s not even supposed to ask questions,” Trump said at an impromptu news conference held shortly after he landed in Wisconsin, reiterating claims he made earlier today on Twitter. “The press conference Fields was attending at the time, had ended and Trump says he “was leaving, and she runs up, and you can see, there are pictures, where she’s grabbing my arm and I”m trying to get her off.” Trump did not produce the photos he said were in the other room of his private jet.
“It’s a disgrace that something like that could take place. I’m shocked by it and I will stick by people,” Trump said. “When somebody is maligned so unfairly as that, I will stick by them.”
