However, following her resignation from the White House - or firing, depending on which White House source you ask - Manigault Newman told "Good Morning America" host Michael Strahan that the Trump administration's actions toward black Americans were "upsetting" and "uncomfortable".
The fiery former star of Trump's show The Apprentice will leave early next year, press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
According to Omarosa, the reports of her departure have been inaccurate; on top of her insistence that she resigned of her own volition, Omarosa also said that she left the job after a conversation in the Situation Room, not the residential portion of the White House.
Manigault Newman joined the White House staff as director of communications at the White House Office of Public Liaison after President Trump took office. "I wish you continued success".
"[Did] she have any qualifications to work in the White House?"

White House economic advisor Peter Navarro said during the campaign that Trump would "break up the new media conglomerate oligopolies".
She was sacked by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and escorted out of the building after a vulgar tirade, according to White House correspondent April Ryan.
"Omarosa was useless and incompetent", this person vented.
But her efforts at improving Trump's relationship with the demographic group that overwhelmingly voted against him in the 2016 presidential election didn't appear to be effective. However, Priebus had banned Newman from several White House meetings.
"That was petty", Omarosa said to Inside Edition of Roberts' remark. "Did you see any part of her story?"
In a 2004 interview with Playboy, Mr Trump described her as a liar.
After graduating from Washington DC's historically black Howard University, she worked for Vice-President Al Gore, before joining President Bill Clinton's personnel office, then the US Commerce Department.
