'The Apprentice's Omarosa Manigault Has Resigned From The White House

'The Apprentice's Omarosa Manigault Has Resigned From The White House

Sanders said in a statement, "Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities".

White House correspondent April Ryan appeared on CNN today to talk about this development, and she noted that Manigault, a former friend of hers, was deeply unpopular among her colleagues within the administration. Through this position, she earned an annual salary of $179,700, according to an official report released in June by the White House.

President Donald Trump holds an African American History Month listening session with Omarosa Manigault and other officials at the White House on February 1, 2017.

Mrs Sanders added that Mrs Manigault Newman would depart on 20 January, one year after Mr Trump took office.

Over the summer, she caused uproar at an event for black journalists, when she paced on stage while arguing with the panel's moderator and refused to discuss her boss, President Trump. "I heard there was drama and she was escorted out of the building and off campus".

A White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity with NBC News, said that Tillerson's allies in the administration were scarce after months of clashing with the president.

In her book, Mrs Manigault Newman described her government supervisor as someone who "constantly sabotaged her efforts". She had personal access to the president and could not be kept out of a White House job, although there was no shortage of efforts to prevent her hiring.

After graduating from Washington DC's historically black Howard University, she worked for Vice-President Al Gore, before joining President Bill Clinton's personnel office, then the US Commerce Department. "This is not the first firing for Omarosa from Trump!". Besides that she makes Apprentice jokes at White House events and sometimes leaves early (when the events are boring).

She appeared in the first season of "The Apprentice" in 2004 and worked previous year on Mr. Trump's presidential campaign.

Ryan reiterated her tweets regarding the former Apprentice star offering vulgarities before claiming that the ousted White House aide's "assistant was let go as well". A CBC source told CBS News that the group was not interested in what they predicted would be another "photo-op".
