Setting The Record Straight: Omarosa Just Cleared Up Stories About Her Resignation

In an interview Thursday morning, presidential aide Omarosa Manigault looked to clear up rumors and false stories about her resignation.

The White House put out a statement on Wednesday morning that Omarosa had resigned, but would be working with the administration until January 20th.

Since the announcement, a couple rumors have emerged: Omarosa was fired for disputes with Chief of Staff John Kelly and she was physically escorted from the White House.

She called these alternatives “100 percent false” during an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Fox News reports the story:

“I like to hear all of these interesting tales,” [Omarosa] Manigault Newman said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I have to tell you, they are 100 percent false.”

She claimed she was not fired and blamed the “tale” of a dramatic exit on a single reporter. While she did not specifically name the reporter, it seemed clear she was referring to American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan. Ryan tweeted Wednesday that Manigault Newman “tried to break into the residence” and “tripped the alarms.”

And:

“Not only is it ridiculous, but it is also absurd,” she said. “I wouldn’t want anyone, nonetheless myself, to be able to run around and cause disruption. The White House is the most secure place in the world.”

Manigault Newman described the reporter as someone with a “personal vendetta against me,” and called her reporting “completely false” and “unverified.”

According to the Fox report, the Wall Street Journal also reported Omarosa was physically dragged from the White House grounds.

The Secret Service denied this claim over Twitter.

They tweeted, “Reporting regarding Secret Service personnel physically removing Omarosa Manigault Newman from the @WhiteHouse complex is incorrect.”

And, “The Secret Service was not involved in the termination process of Ms Manigault Newman or the escort off of the complex. Our only involvement in this matter was to deactivate the individual’s pass which grants access to the complex.”

Politico similarly reports that Omarosa denied the stories as false and shares more information:

Manigault Newman, who was among the staffers to move into the White House on Inauguration Day, said she and other Trump aides had to adjust to Kelly’s “militaristic” style when he became chief of staff last summer. She also said there was resentment among some in the West Wing towards her longstanding relationship with the president that dates back to “The Apprentice.”

“Certainly I had more access than most and people had problems with that. People had problems with my 14-year relationship with this president,” she said. “But I’ve always been loyal to him, straightforward and I’ve provided him with the support that he’s needed throughout this year.”

Here’s more from Axios:

Her issues with her WH role:

  • “There were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was unhappy with, that I was uncomfortable with … When I can tell my story, it is a profound story.”
  • “As the only African-American woman in the White House I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people.”

President Donald Trump, whom Omarosa has a professional 14-year relationship, thanked her for her service:
