Former senior White House aide and New York Times bestselling-author Omarosa Manigault Newman explained her long history with President Donald Trump has resulted in her knowing “too much” for the White House to destroy her.
Newman met Trump as a contestant on the first season of NBC’s reality TV show “The Apprentice.”
MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin on Monday asked whether she thought we would even definitively know the identity of the unnamed author of a scathing New York Times editorial on President Trump.
“I don’t think we’ll know,” Newman predicted.
“I think The New York Times will protect their source, hopefully, because if they don’t Donald Trump will stop at nothing to destroy this person,” she predicted.
“They’ll never, ever work in Washington, D.C. again,” she continued.
“That has not happened to you,” Melvin noted.
“He’s tried,” Newman replied.
“He can’t defeat me, I know too much and I know too much of his tactics,” she concluded.
WATCH: Climate activists chant ‘failure of leadership’ at Tom Perez after DNC votes against climate debate
Activists walked out of the Democratic National Committee's summer meeting in San Francisco after the organization voted against allowing a climate change debate during the 2020 primary.
DNC Chair Tom Perez imposed strict rules on the debates, which prevented a climate change debate from occurring. Climate activists had forced a vote, hoping to overrule the party boss.
Photojournalist Steve Rhodes attended the meeting and documented the outrage among climate activists, including the "a failure of leadership" chant.

Trump’s threat to ‘hereby’ force manufacturers to do his bidding stomped by legal analyst
President Donald Trump is claiming extraordinary powers in his escalating trade war with China.
On Friday, Trump demanded that American companies look for alternatives to China.
"Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies home and making your products in the USA," Trump tweeted.
Of course, the president has no power to order such a thing.
Trump then announced massive tariffs on China, citing the Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977.
