Ex-Trump Aide Omarosa Sounds Alarm: ‘I Was Very Uncomfortable With’ Events In Trump White House
Trump Aide Omarosa sounds genuinely disturbed over thing she saw in the White House
When Trump was transitioning into the White House, there were accusations that he was promoting favoritism over a meritocracy, meaning people were getting government positions simply because of their relationship to him and not their skill set. This covered family members, like Jared Kushner getting Senior Advisor, to campaign friends, like Ben Carson getting Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Another one of these people getting special treatment was Omarosa Manigault, a recurring contestant on Donald Trump’s shows The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice back when he was a reality TV host. Omarosa was made the Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison, after having previously worked as Director of African-American outreach for Trump’s presidential campaign.
Despite everything seemingly going great for her, Omarosa announced Wednesday that she would be resigning come January 20, 2018, though other reports claimed that Chief of Staff John Kelly had actually fired her. While no one outside of the White House can know for certain what happened, Omarosa has made it clear that actions in the Trump Administration went beyond even her low moral compass.
Speaking to host Michael Strahan of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Omarosa had this to say:
“I’m not going to expand on it because I still have to go back and work with these individuals, but when I have a chance to tell my story, Michael, quite a story to tell as the only African-American woman in this White House as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”
This is particularly shocking considering last year Omarosa was actively advocating for other African Americans to abandon the Democratic Party in favor of the Trump-lead Republican Party. Based on her statement, it appears that the reasoning behind her departure involved racism, as she specifically mentions her status as the only black woman working in the Administration and how the things she has seen have affected her “community” and “people.”
Trump has had a history of racism going back to the 1970s when he and his father, Fred Trump, denied low-income housing to black Americans. With his promotion of Birtherism in the 2011, it seems that those attitudes have not left his mindset, and consequently affected Omarosa.
