Omarosa Is Out At The White House

Wednesday - 13/12/2017 18:29
The former Apprentice villain and one of the most prominent black women in the administration is leaving the Trump administration.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former reality TV star turned political aide to President Trump, has resigned from her administration position, the White House announced Wednesday.

Manigault-Newman resigned on Tuesday "to pursue other opportunities," press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. Her departure will not be effective until Jan. 20, 2018 — exactly one year since Trump took office.

"We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service," Sanders said.

The terms of her departure, however, appeared more dramatic than the White House let on.

Manigault-Newman was fired and escorted out of the building on Tuesday night, sources told BuzzFeed News. (The Secret Service later tweeted that their agents were not involved in removing her, though they did deactivate her access pass to the White House.) April Ryan, who covers the White House and has feuded with Manigault-Newman, also reported Wednesday there was "drama" around the departure.

One White House official with knowledge of the situation described an ongoing situation where Manigault-Newman grew increasingly fed up with how the administration handled racially charged issues, adding that moving from crisis to crisis particularly drained the White House. Manigault-Newman has told friends in the past few months, the source said, that being the only black staffer in White House meetings was a source of stress.

"She struggled with being an African-American senior staffer, with all the racial incidents in the White House, and I think it was starting to weigh on her," the official said.
