Earlier this week Omarosa Manigault Newman left her job as communications director in the Office of Public Liaison.

She said, “Donald Trump is racial, but he is not a racist. The things that he says, the types of pushback that he gives, involve people of color. These are racial exchanges. Yes, I will acknowledge many of the exchanges—particularly in the last six months—have been racially charged. Do we then just stop and label him as a racist? No.” Newman also spoke about the “lack of diversity” in the White House.

Newman said, “It has been very, very challenging being the only African-American woman in the senior staff.” She also spoke in another interview with Michael Strahan and talked about how she has a story to tell. We will just have to see what happens with this.
