Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has been accused of trying to sway support for his boss, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to back the presumptive GOP nominee in an online video.
In the video, Lewandowski says that the song has been played more than 1.3 million times on Facebook, and that he believes it “can make Hillary Clinton’s day.”
Lewandowski says he also wanted to highlight that he “wasn’t here” for the campaign, and to say that he’s “just a little bit of a hater” of Clinton.
Trump’s campaign has denied that Lewandowski had any intention of swaying voters in the online video, which he posted Friday afternoon.
“I didn’t ever say that,” Lewandowski said in a statement.
“It was simply a suggestion, a suggestion that the president wanted to have in his video.”
He added that he has not done anything that would sway votes.
“In fact, I was just trying to highlight the fact that this song is really powerful for the country,” Lewandowksi said in the video.
“We’ve been trying to make sure that she is going to win.
So I just wanted to give her a little credit.”

Trump is speaking to troops in Germany.
The president tweeted Saturday that the music in the clip is a song he made with his wife, Melania, and is a tribute to his wife.
“A lot of people love it.
I love it,” Trump said.
“I think people like it.”
The video was posted by the conservative radio station Fox News, which is owned by the family of Republican strategist Karl Rove.
The song was made by two musicians who were also paid by the campaign.
In an email to The Associated Press, Fox News said it had no relationship with the song.
The clip has been viewed more than 3 million times.
In addition to the song, Lewandowitz is seen singing a version of a folk song, “I’m Just a Gomorra Girl,” while talking to troops and Trump.
The singer is also seen singing “Happy Birthday, America,” a song that the White House recently released.
The video comes amid reports that Lewandovksi has been in contact with the Trump campaign and Trump’s son, Eric, and has spoken with the campaign about a potential White House bid.
Trump has denied any such contact, saying the people are “friends” of his.
A spokeswoman for the Trump Organization declined to comment.
