Trump's Va. campaign chair Corey Stewart fired for organizing protest outside RNC

The Donald J. Trump campaign confirms it has fired Corey Stewart as chairman of its Virginia campaign after organizing a protest outside the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington D.C. on Monday.

The protest was filled with mostly women who spoke about their support for Trump and the fact that their support has not changed since audio of crude comments made by Trump and "Today" show host Billy Bush about women was leaked on Friday. But unexpectedly, a woman, who identified herself as Julia Haller, the Northern Virginia Field Director for the Trump campaign, walked up to the crowd and pleaded with the group to stop the protest.

"If you love Mr. Trump, please go home," Haller requested from the crowd.

Stewart, the Virginia State Chairman for the Trump campaign, did not appear to speak with Haller, but instead took the megaphone to address the crowd. Stewart said he would not let the establishment stop the Trump movement.

"When we chose Mr. Trump, they -- the Republican elites in this building -- cannot take that away," Stewart addressed the protest crowd.

He also announced that his job had been threatened for organizing the rally held outside of the RNC.

After Stewart's remarks were made, he showed FOX 5's Ronica Cleary a series of threatening text messages that Stewart said prove that they referred to David Bossey, the deputy campaign manager for the Trump campaign. The text said, "Corey call Bossie. Don't do this protest... I didn't know about this till recently. There will be major consequences."

Bossie issued the following statement:

"Former Virginia State Chairman Corey Stewart is no longer affiliated with the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign. He is being replaced, effective immediately. Corey made this decision when he staged a stunt in front of the RNC without the knowledge or the approval of the Trump campaign."

Trump campaign chairman Kellyanne Conway added:

"We have a tremendous working relationship with the RNC. Chairman Reince Priebus has been an engaged and incredibly supportive ally to Mr. Trump throughout the campaign. The Chairman and his top executives, Katie Walsh and Sean Spicer, have stood shoulder to shoulder with us as we have enhanced our field team, data operation, fundraising and ground game efforts over the past couple of months."

When asked if Trump would stand behind him, Stewart replied, "I don't know. I'm not going to put any pressure on him. All I can do is stay loyal to Mr. Trump and loyalty means calling out those who are betraying him."

Stewart posted this to his Facebook page on Monday prior to the official announcement of his firing:

"Tons of interviews today on behalf of Mr. Trump. Then, I went to start a rebellion against GOP establishment pukes who betrayed Trump."

Over two hours later, Stewart then posted on Facebook, "Great news! Weak-kneed establishment Republicans were pressuring the RNC to pull their support and focus on down-ticket races. We put pressure on them today to continue to support Trump. They heard us loud and clear."
