Omarosa Explains Why She Feels Donald Trump Isn’t Racist
In a recent blog for the Hollywood Reporter, Omarosa once again defends Trump and offers “evidence” as to why he can’t be called a racist.
US Weekly writes:
“I’m black, female, and Donald Trump is my friend,” the former reality star wrote in The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, December 6. “In my experiences with him, he has only been professional. I am aware of the perceptions. But he is open-minded: He does not judge people on their gender or race. He judges them on their ability to do the job,” she wrote of the real estate mogul.
Addressing claims of sexism, Manigault said Trump’s companies have more female executives than his competition and pays them more, and pointed out his daughter Ivanka Trump “is about to take over the company.”
During the campaign, a leaked 2005 Access Hollywood video surfaced in which the Republican could be heard bragging to journalist Billy Bush about grabbing women by the genitals. The business mogul-turned-politician was also accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, and was often criticized for making derogatory remarks about women’s appearances.
As for racism, the 42-year-old denied ever seeing any signs that Trump or his family discriminate, pointing out that the businessman had invested in her career, openly called her his “favorite contestant” and even backed her dating show spin-off, The Ultimate Merger, which featured an African-American cast and was on black network TV One.
“Truly, I am living the American Dream because of Donald Trump. Look at my career, the wealth and exposure that I’ve had: It’s very difficult to make the argument that Donald Trump doesn’t like black people and black women,” she wrote.
