Omarosa Manigault, a former Apprentice star turned White House communications official, is reportedly keeping tabs on the “enemies” of President Donald Trump.
According to the Daily Mail, the former reality TV star is keeping a “dossier” on her political rivals. Manigault has targeted journalists April Ryan and Roland Martin and Pastor Jamal Bryant in particular.
The three public figures once were on friendly terms with Manigault. But their relationships broke down during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“It’s shocking that three people she once considered her close friends are not just her personal nemeses, but she’s always bashing in meetings with senior White House staff and has her team keeping a dossier on each of them,” one source told the Daily Mail.
“Omarosa can be very much like Trump when it comes to having an open mind. Things are very black and white with her and if you don’t support whatever it is she’s doing, she makes an enemy out of you and that’s what happened to April,’ the source explained. “When April told Omarosa she thought her Trump support was a bad idea, it was the end of their friendship.”
Manigault served as the Trump campaign’s director of African-American outreach. Now she is the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison for the Trump administration.
But Manigault feels betrayed by her former friends who didn’t supporter her decision to back Trump — and is look for “revenge,” according to the Daily Mail.
In March, she confronted Ryan and reportedly threatened to smear her as “a paid Clinton surrogate.” Ryan said Manigault “stood right in my face like she was going to hit me” during the confrontation just outside the West Wing.
