Donald Trump’s Highest-Ranking African-American Adviser Out at White House

Washington, December 16 (RHC)-- In the United States, President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman has resigned, she says, after witnessing a series of upsetting incidents inside the White House.  A former contestant on Trump’s reality TV show “The Apprentice,” she was the only African-American in Trump’s inner circle.

There are conflicting reports about her departure shortly after the Roy Moore-Doug Jones Senate race in Alabama on Tuesday, with some reports saying she was forcibly removed from the White House and other reports saying she resigned voluntarily.  In a series of interviews since her departure, she has criticized the nearly all-white administration, saying the members “had never worked with minorities [and] didn’t know how to interact with them.” 

Multiple reports said she objected to President Trump’s refusal to condemn the deadly white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Omarosa Manigault Newman, speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” said: “As the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people.”
