Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has moved on to new things after leaving the Trump administration. She has been cast on the reality TV show "Celebrity Big Brother", and in an upcoming episode, Manigault Newman says the U.S. is "going to not be okay" under President Donald Trump's leadership.
Manigault Newman, who left her post as White House director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in December, was shown in a clip set to air Thursday as co-star and TV personality Ross Mathews asked if she was concerned for the country under Trump's leadership.
Manigault Newman nodded, then remarked: “I’d like to say it’s not my problem, but I can’t say that because it’s bad.”
The former Apprentice star also said she was "haunted" by the president's tweeting habit while serving in the White House:
“I was haunted by tweets every single day," Manigault Newman said. "Like what is he going to tweet next?”
In Wednesday's episode, Manigault Newman likened life on the show to life in the White House:
"There's a lot of people that want to stab me in the back, kind of similar to the White House," she said. "The one thing that I learned from politics is you have to watch your back, and sometimes you have to watch your front, too."
