One of the major black figures in Donald Trump’s administration,Omarosa Manigault could be the next contestant booted from the White House.
According to NY Daily Times,D.C. sources say that President Trump isn’t ready to tell his director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison “You’re fired!” but word around the nation’s capital is that he wouldn’t stop her from walking out the door on her own terms.
“Her days are numbered, but Trump is trying to give her time to resign,” one source said.
Manigault has demonstrated a knack for keeping The Donald on her side. After she was booted from NBC’s “The Apprentice” in 2004, Trump made her the first contestant to be brought back for another chance on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2008. After her ousting from that program, Trump got Manigault her own reality show on TV One.
However, since John Kelly became the President’s Chief of Staff on July 31, Manigault has slowly been worked out of the picture.
The former general is said, by one of our sources, to have been unhappy about the chaos at last month’s National Association of Black Journalists Convention in New Orleans.
Manigault’s visit there was largely described as confrontational as she aggressively insisted reporters “Ask me a question about me,” while sidestepping inquiries about the administration she represents.
The unpopular former “Apprentice” star’s office is located in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building at 1650 Pennsylvania Ave., rather than in the White House — a decision made by former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, we’re told.
White House spokeswoman Sara Sanders calls our sources’ claims “totally false and made up accusations.” Manigault did not respond to a request for comment.
