Omarosa Says She Only Supported Trump’s Presidential Ambitions to Help Black People

In an interview with ABC News, Omarosa opened up about how her decision to help Donald Trump run for president may have hurt her relationships with friends and family.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Omarosa Manigault, the former “Apprentice” contestant who was the Trump campaign’s director of African-American outreach, said she caught “a lot of flak” and received death threats for supporting the president-elect.

“I was called every single racial slur in the book that you could direct towards an African-American by African-Americans,” she said through tears.

The campaign aide told ABC News’ “20/20” that her support for Trump led to her being frozen out by some of her friends and family members, including one who was supposed to be a bridesmaid in her wedding this spring.

“I will never forget the people who turned their backs on me when all I was trying to do was help the black community,” Manigault said. “It’s been so incredibly hard.”

  1. She should really stop lying. She was not doing this to help us. She did this to help and advance herself. She knew doing this would get her a job in the cabinet if he won. Plus it’s no secret he’s been giving her jobs since The Apprentice. This was all about her and not her people.

  2. When has Donald Trump or Omarosa given a sh-t about black people? The campaign is over and they won. No need to keep telling these lies now. Omarosa has always been about her damn self. See how it didn’t take her long to find a replacement after her first fiance died.

  3. I don’t think anyone should be abandoned for their political beliefs but Omarosa should try to be a little more honest here. It’s pretty obvious why she backed Trump. He’s been looking out for her for years, so of course she decided to support him. It’s personal interest for her. This was not done out of her love for black people. She’s never really cared too much about us anyway.

  4. She just said in another interview that she has thick skin and she will never care what people think about her. But here she is crying…so contrived. I now see why people hated her so much. She’s so fake and calculating.

  5. If she cared so much about us why’s she not denouncing all these racist attacks against black people now that her Massa has won? Cause she doesn’t give a sh-t about us, that’s why.

  6. She needs to sit down somewhere. I’m tired of her and Trump. It’s sad that they elected a damn reality star for president. Man can’t even be a successful businessman without filing for bankruptcy so many times but he’s qualified to lead the country let them tell it. Girl bye.
