According to CNN's Dana Bash, the move came after Ivanka Trump gave her father an ultimatum.

Also behind the move was Ms. Trump's husband, Bash said.

[June 21st, 2016] - Donald Trump Jr. is shedding some light on the sudden firing of his father’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Trump's kids, led by daughter Ivanka and sons Donald Jr. and Eric, reportedly convinced their dad that Lewandowski had to go.

Trump’s eldest son appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday to say “things had to change” within the campaign.

He also admitted that he was in the room when Lewandowski was sacked by the Trump campaign and “there was nothing malicious or vicious about it.”

“It is not an easy thing to do,” Donald Jr. said. “He got my father to where we are today, which is historic… There is time to move on.”

The GOP frontrunner's son added: “I think things had to change. I think it worked out well and it made a lot of sense. Those are the tough decisions you make when you are running for president.”

According to Donald Jr., the former campaign manager “didn’t see this coming. There has to be a transition towards the general [election]. What he has done so far has been incredible and historic.”

On Monday night, Donald Trump told Bill O’Reilly that he parted with his former campaign manager on good terms.

“With Corey, I'm really proud of him,” Trump said. “He did a great job but we're going in a different direction.” [INSIDE EDITION]
