Omarosa Says Donald Trump Is 'Racial' But 'Not A Racist'

"She has a story to tell, I'm sure she'll be selling that story..."

Rye sent a warning that she was about to do something that she knew Ryan and Sanders wouldn't do as she responded to news of Manigault leaving the White House - whether voluntarily or involuntarily. Some published reports said Secret Service officers had physically removed Manigault Newman from the complex.

Omarosa Manigault arrives before a February news briefing in the White House during her tenure as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

"Our only involvement in this matter was to deactivate the individual's pass which grants access to the complex", the agency tweeted.

But many black Twitter users were not pleased with her attempted defense of Trump. Roberts wasn't the only person to take jabs at Manigault. "I have to tell you, they are 100 percent false".

Manigault Newman herself got into a heated exchange during a panel discussion at the annual convention of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) earlier this year. It appeared that Sanders also couldn't hold back her laughter.

After pointing out that Manigault is a former Democrat, Campos-Duffy explained that the Apprentice star supported Trump in the 2016 election, and "there is a very special punishment for minorities who are either conservatives, or now Trump supporters". With the exception of Housing Secretary Ben Carson, who does not work in the White House, there are no other Black officials "among Trump's more than three dozen cabinet members and senior staff", according to The Washington Post.

Her exit comes at the beginning of what's expected to be a wave of departures.

Manigault Newman enjoyed a close relationship with the president despite the fact that he once uttered the famous "You're fired!" line to her before dispatching her from the TV show.

On Thursday, she told ABC's "Nightline" that she was "very lonely" working as part of Trump's overwhelmingly white senior team.
