Following reports that drama surrounded her exit from the White House, Omarosa Manigault-Newman set the record straight, giving her account Thursday morning to ABC's Good Morning America.
Manigault-Newman denied claims that her departure had to do with Chief of Staff John Kelly limiting her access to the president:
She said...Kelly brought "much needed order to the West Wing," denying that he restricted her access to Trump. But she added, "Certainly I had more access than most, and people had problems with that. People had problems with my 14-year relationship with this president."
January 20, 2018 will be Manigault-Newman's final day at the White House, and she seems eager to inform the world just what her experience was with the Trump administration.
"But when I have my 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 have 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," Manigault added.
