Omarosa exits the White House, but with a 'small' dose of drama

Share

Williams told The Washington Post Wednesday that "as recently as last week she told me about her concerns about the president endorsing Roy Moore". "[Chief of Staff] John Kelly and I sat down in the situation room, which is a very secure, very quiet room in the White House and we had a very candid conversation".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Manigault Newman's resignation is effective January 20, one year after Trump's inauguration.

She was sacked three times from his shows, but she became a favorite of Trump, who invited her to participate in subsequent iterations of the show.

Omarosa Manigault Newman is denying reports that she was forcibly escorted from the White House after being fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly, saying the reports are "100 percent false".

She also reportedly had a shouting match with Ryan at the National Association of Black Journalists convention earlier this year, in response to questions about her impact on the president's views of and policies on law enforcement.

Manigault Newman, who drew a top salary of $179,700, was one of Trump's highest-profile supporters during the campaign. "And this is the one person who attacked me the past year, so you know that this is personal". The Secret Service said they deactivated her pass to the complex, which Manigault Newman said was to restrict her access as her role would be changing in the near future.

Trump, once famously fired her on his NBC show "The Apprentice" tweeted praise for Manigault Newman on Wednesday and thanked her for her service.

The United States Secret Service, in an surprising move on Wednesday evening, also denied reports that they physically escorted her out of the White House.

Manigault Newman denied being escorted from the campus after tripping an alarm in the residences.

"I have to still go back and work with these individuals", she said.

"I resigned and I didn't do that in the residence as reported", Newman said.

Manigault told host Michael Strahan that as "the only African-American woman in this White House senior staff, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me and affected me deeply and emotionally and affected my people and my community".

She didn't directly name the reporter, but she hinted it was American Urban Radio's April Ryan, who's also a political analyst for CNN.

He said he did not know if Manigault had told Trump about her concerns, and she did not confirm to Strahan if she'd spoken with the president on the matter. "People had problems with my 14-year relationship with this president", she said.

Omarosa Manigault Newman says her recent White House departure isn't as dramatic as news reports say - but there's plenty about the Trump administration that made her "uncomfortable". "I've always been loyal to him".

Omarosa vaguely referred to things she observed in the White House that she was troubled by that had affected "her people", and she said she looked forward to telling her "profound" story about her experiences.
