Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has named Theresa “Omarosa” Manigault, the former star of Trump’s own The Apprentice and a former Survivor contestant, the director of African-American Outreach for his administration and campaign.
Omarosa has gone on the air several times leading up to the Republican National Convention in support of Trump and now it seems she is putting her money where her mouth is.
“I’m happy to take up that cause for Donald Trump,” she told MSNBC upon confirming her hiring.
Several months ago, Omarosa called Trump a trailblazer for women.
Today she also addressedrecent polling which showed Trump polling at zero percent approval among Black voters in the key state of Ohio, saying,“I’m just wondering who they called because those numbers would be flawed according to the people who have come out to support him at an amazing faith-based service with African-Americans who support Donald Trump. So I look at data, but my reality is that I’m surrounded by people who want to see Donald Trump as the next president of the United States who are African-Americans.”
Despite her apparent confidence, just months ago she also told MSNBC that she wasn’t clear she would even vote for Trump, saying, “It comes with so much weight.” Adding, “This is the most important position in the world.”
Looks like she is ready to sing a different tune and support the polarizing reality star turned politician.
