Former “The Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault Newman is leaving the White House at the beginning of the new year.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday that Manigault Newman resigned Tuesday and that her departure won’t be effective until Jan. 20, 2018.
Manigault Newman joined the White House as the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. She received $179,000 annually for the job, however, it is unclear what exactly she did.
She was previously criticized for having a 39-person photo shoot in the Rose Garden. Manigault Newman, a prominent black supporter of Trump’s, also caught flack for referring to her self as “the Honorable” in a letter to black congressmen.
