TROY, Michigan (WWJ) - President Donald Trump's former campaign manager -- facing criticism for a recent comment he made this week in response to a story of an immigrant girl with Down Syndrome -- has now backed out of a planned Michigan visit tomorrow.  Corey Lewandowski was to speak at the American Polish Cultural Center in Troy at an event hosted by Michigan Trump Republicans.

Lewandowski has drawn widespread criticism for his response to former Democratic National Committee adviser Zac Petkanas -- who shared a story during an appearance on FOX News about the child, who was taken from her mother after crossing the border.

Lewandowksi, in a tweet, said he was mocking a liberal "who attempted to politicize children" instead of discussing the immigration system.

He's been dropped by his speaker's bureau according to Money.cnn.com - cutting ties on Wednesday. 

Lewandowski was recently hired by T-Mobile to help win regulatory approval of its proposed merger with Sprint -- now there's pressure for the corporate telecommunication giant to make a stand in light of the reprehensible remarks. The Twitter-sphere lighting up with questions on T-Mobile's silence in connection with their working relationship with Lewandowski.
