Apprentice Star Omarosa Manigault Will Leave Trump Administration Next Month

In what might be a White House shake-up, Omarosa Manigault-Newman has resigned from the Trump Administration.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement today confirming that Manigault will take her leave on the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump‘s presidency.

Manigault has long worked as an aide and confidant for Trump, and she served the White House by doing outreach as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. Even so, recent reports indicate that she had a negative relationship with her White House colleagues, and there have been a lot of questions about what exactly she contributed to the administration.

White House correspondent April Ryan used to have a personal relationship with Manigault, and when she reported the first signs of Manigault’s departure, she suggested that there was contention last night amid the resignation:

Of course, Manigault rose to fame as a recurring villain on The Apprentice, so maybe by now, she’s used to getting the “you’re fired” treatment from the president. But don’t worry. Maybe she’ll return in a future season of our reality show existence.
