Trump Loyalist Omarosa Manigault Newman Resigns

Not Released Omarosa gained notoriety as a villain on “The Apprentice.”

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who formerly served as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, will officially be leaving her position, according to the Associated Press.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Manigault Newman's resignation is effective January 20, one year after Trump's inauguration.

"We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service", Sanders said.

"I am hearing from several sources there was a lot of drama at the White House last night and it wasn't about the Alabama election", Stay tuned", she wrote on Twitter.

Ryan contends that despite the official story that Manigault Newman voluntarily tendered a resignation letter, she was sacked by Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly before "offering vulgarities and curse words as she was escorted out of the building and off campus".

Critics said Mrs Manigault Newman's role at the White House was vague and ill-defined, and that she seemed to spend more time planning her wedding than organising outreach.

Ryan reiterated her tweets regarding the former Apprentice star offering vulgarities before claiming that the ousted White House aide's "assistant was let go as well".

Omarosa likes to hug people (even journalists).

Warm and engaging, she's also slightly unprofessional; she brought members of her bridal party to the White House for a photo shoot. And, mind you, Gen. Kelly had cut off her walk-in access to the Oval Office and things of that nature. That may be the point.

Chief of Staff John Kelly has been moving controversial figures out, trying to make the White House seem more staid.

It's tough to sneak in a question to Omarosa-about her job, her life, her goals, about where exactly we are heading at this precise moment-because we are always walking, quickly and seemingly aimlessly across the West Wing, and in and out of rooms at the EEOB.

"She's a tremendous salesperson", he points out.

Her White House tenure has not been without some tension.

Newman competed on The Apprentice, hosted by Donald Trump.

In a 2004 interview with Playboy, Mr Trump described her as a liar. She will leave her position next month. "She was very upset and said that she wanted to speak to the president".

She wrote a 2008 book The Bitch Switch, which was billed as "a step-by-step guide for locating your inner BITCH, personalising your switch, and knowing when to turn it on and when to turn it off".

Ms. Manigault Newman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
