A very public screaming match between top Donald Trump campaign staffers left onlookers stunned in New York City.

Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and spokeswoman Hope Hicks reportedly got into a loud argument in Manhattan on Wednesday night, according to New York Post’s Page Six.

Onlookers saw Hicks, 27, and Lewandowski, 42, shouting at each other in a disagreement that may have stemmed from changes in the Trump ranks promoting top aide Paul Manafort.

“Hope was screaming at Corey, ‘I am done with you!’ It was ugly,” said one witness, according to the Post. “She was doubled over with her fists clenched. He stood there looking shocked with his hands on his head.”

“It was a campaign-related disagreement,” a source told the Post. “They were arguing how the announcement about Manafort taking more responsibility would be handled. There is an internal struggle to define what Corey’s role would be.”

Another source told the Post the argument was a “continuation of a discussion about when the announcement would go out. Corey wanted to wait until Thursday to give him a chance to talk to certain people first. Hicks was under pressure by others to make the announcement sooner.”

Both Hicks and Lewandowski declined to comment when contacted by the Post which said the incident is another sign of the internal conflicts in the Trump campaign.
