The Washington Times reports:
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Wednesday that he’d be willing to consider a White House communications role. “If they want me to be helpful on the inside, I’d be willing to consider that. But the most important thing is you have to have people who surround the president who are on his agenda,” Mr. Lewandowski said on Fox News.
“Look, that’s a decision for the president to make and his team. You know I’ve been very clear, I want to make sure this president’s agenda gets done, which is tax reform and health care reform and building a wall on our Southern border, and all of the things that he pledged during the campaign,” he said.
Mr. Lewandowski said it would be easier for someone who has a “pre-existing” relationship with Mr. Trump to fill the role of White House communications director. Mike Dubke, the current communications director, announced Tuesday he would be leaving the White House in the near future for “personal reasons.”
More from Fox News:
Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, explained that it’s not just Democrats on Capitol Hill who are roadblocking the president’s agenda, but also individuals within his own party.
“President Trump was elected to change the country. And you can get on board that train or you can lose your next election, because – I can promise you this – the Democrats have a different agenda,” Lewandowski said. He argued that Democrats have forgotten about everyday Americans and that’s what helped propel Trump to the White House.
Lewandowski: “It’s much easier, I think, if you have people who had a preexisting relationship to understand how the president functions.”

Corey meant to say that it takes people with a pre-existing condition (like mania) to understand how the president functions.
