Lewandowski, as we reported, was arrested earlier on Tuesday morning because of an alleged assault that took place earlier this month on Michelle Fields, a Breitbart News reporter, at a campaign event.

Now, The Donald has given his take on the arrest — and he did it on his favorite communications tool, Twitter (below):

Look, we know Trump has to back his guy, but talk about trash!

The Trump campaign also released an official statement doubling down on Lewandowski’s innocence (below) and clarifying that the campaign manager apparently wasn’t technically arrested:

“Mr. Lewandowski was issued a Notice to Appear and given a court date. He was not arrested. Mr. Lewandowski is absolutely innocent of this charge. He will enter a plea of not guilty and looks forward to his day in court. He is completely confident that he will be exonerated.”

Then again, this is just par for the course with the Trump campaign…
