In a teaser for the upcoming ABC 2020 special Making of a Presidency, “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault explained her comments that critics of Donald Trump “will have to bow down” to his presidency.
“Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump,” Manigault said during a Frontline interview in September. “It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
Asked about her “intense” language, Manigault clarified she was speaking her “opinion” and “it wasn’t an official statement from the Trump campaign.”
“Let’s just say,” she continued, “the list of people who’ve turned on him, who’ve gone from friend to foe, is so incredibly long. The list of people who have mocked him—I mean, Mitt Romney held an entire press conference, and gave a 20 minute speech calling Donald Trump a con man and a fraud.”
Manigault went on to say Romney is the “one person who should read that quote over and over again.”

November 2019 intel report warned of COVID-19 ‘cataclysmic event’ — even as Trump still insists no one saw it coming
In the rush to innovate for COVID-19 drugs, sound science is still essential
Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have been at the center of debate in recent weeks over which drugs should be used to treat COVID-19. Neither product has strong evidence to support use for this purpose, and small studies reported to date have either had significant flaws or failed to demonstrate effect.
Nonetheless, the president can’t seem to stop pushing them, arguing that patients have nothing to lose. As physicians, bioethicists and drug law experts, we have a responsibility to inject caution here. As public officials and scientists rush to innovate, no one should overlook the critical role of strong regulatory protections in supporting our ability to actually figure out which drugs work against COVID-19. Weakening commitment to science and evidence during this crisis truly would be “a cure worse” than the disease.
Increasingly detached Trump frequently fantasizes about proving critics wrong about unproven coronavirus treatment: report
President Donald Trump is leaning on the comfort of Fox News pals, Rudy Giuliani and his family as the coronavirus overwhelms his presidency and keeps him from the campaign trail.
The president has grown even more detached and distrustful of the government he oversees and the medical experts trying to guide him through the pandemic, and he's betting heavily on the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a miracle cure for the virus, reported The Daily Beast.
