Corey Lewandowski has been temporarily blacklisted at Trump-owned properties and MAGA events — in the wake of allegations that he sexually assaulted and harassed a donor last month.
However, Lewandowski's expulsion may not last long, as former president Donald Trump reportedly has left the door open for his longtime top aide to re-enter his inner circle, based on "good behavior," according to the Daily Beast.
Lewandowski was removed as head of Trump's super PAC, Make America Great Again Action, after he was accused of stalking and repeatedly groping donor Trashelle Odom.
Since then, Trump "has made a point of telling close associates and Republican allies that they should avoid inviting Lewandowski to public events or 'parties,' particularly if alcohol is flowing or if the event is held at one of the ex-president's prized private clubs," the Daily Beast reported.
"Others close to Trump have already told subordinates, as well as fellow players in the party and in the conservative movement more broadly, to remove Lewandowski (at least for now) from invitations and emails for upcoming GOP and MAGA festivities, according to two sources familiar with the situation," according to the site.
The decision reportedly has "delighted many of (Lewandowski's) Republican enemies," given that he has long "been despised inside Donald Trump's inner sanctum."
However, Lewandowski has not been made aware of his expulsion, and people close to Trump predicted it would be only temporary.
"In private conversations over the last two weeks, the former president left the door open for Lewandowski, with Trump saying he wasn't sure if every recent allegation sounded credible, according to two people familiar with the situation," the Daily Beast reported.
One of the sources told the site: "The [former] president mentioned that with 'good behavior,' Corey could be OK. Like he was talking about somebody… on parole."
