Following a meeting with his entire campaign, GOP nominee Donald Trump announced in a statement that the campaign was parting ways with Corey Lewandowski.

“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican Primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign,” Trump press secretary Hope Hicks told the New York Times in a statement.

“The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future,” Hicks said.

The campaign shift came following an emergency meeting that included the campaign’s entire staff, which aimed to focus on a new strategy as it gets ready for a general election, according to Bloomberg News.

Donors and supporters from Trump’s inner-circle have reportedly been, so far, dissatisfied with the campaign’s apparent lack of coordination.

Though Lewandowski is out, Keith Nahigian is in, where he is working on a surrogate strategy to coordinate messaging for the campaign.
