Omarosa Manigault Newman is famous for her time on “The Apprentice,” “Celebrity Big Brother” and, of course, as an aide to former President Donald Trump. These days Omarosa is a houseguest on the Australian version of “Celebrity Big Brother,” which is called “Big Brother VIP.”
Omarosa has never been one to keep her opinions and thoughts to herself. On “Big Brother VIP,” she is spilling all the tea about her time working for Trump.
Here’s what you need to know:
Omarosa Revealed Something Trump Was ‘Obsessed’ With
During Omarosa’s time on “Big Brother VIP,” she dished on the time she spent as a political aide to Trump, whom she originally met when she appeared on the first season of his NBC show “The Apprentice” in 2004, according to her official website. She also appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice,” “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” and dating show “Ultimate Merger.”
In a recent trailer for her current show, Omarosa made a “shocking claim” about a time when she accompanied Trump to Mississippi to open a civil rights museum, The Daily Mail reported.
“I was organizing the opening of a civil rights museum. He [Trump] was fascinated with the KKK (Ku Klux Klan) garb,” she said, according to the outlet. “He was obsessed with a white supremacist display. Who is this person?”
She called it Trump’s “disgraceful obsession,” the outlet reported.
Omarosa Offered Her Opinion on Whether Trump Will Run for President in 2024
Recently, Omarosa was asked if she thinks Trump will run for president again in the 2024 election. The Australian outlet Now to Love reported that she said, “Yeah, I don’t think you can run for president from jail.”
She continued, “He’s got so many legal problems right now, I just completed a lawsuit with him that I won and I suspect that he’s going to lose quite a few of these suits but the criminal charges that he’s facing will probably impede his ability to run for president in 2024.”
Trump sued Omarosa after she published her book “Unhinged,” about her time working for Trump in the White House; he tried to prove she violated her nondisclosure agreement, the New York Times reported. He lost that case after a three-year legal battle, the outlet explained. After the decision was released, Omarosa said in a statement, “Donald has used this type of vexatious litigation to intimidate, harass and bully for years,” the outlet reported. “Finally the bully has met his match!”
In her book (as reported by The Guardian), Omarosa said Trump is a racist who frequently used the N-word. She wrote that she had a “growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist. My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I’d experienced with him, during the last two years in particular.”
Omarosa also said Trump often consulted her on matters she “had no business advising him on,” the Independent reported. She also said that Trump revealed classified information on the bombing of Syria to her as well as asked her opinion on matters of defense, the outlet reported.
