Omarosa says she would ‘never’ vote for Trump again


Central State University graduate Omarosa Manigault Newman, who worked for President Donald Trump and was one of his earliest vocal supporters, says she would “never” vote for him again.

On the season premiere of Big Brother on CBS, Manigault Newman said “God no. Never. Not in a million years, never.”

She graduated from CSU in 1996.

She told Ross Matthews on the show that she was “haunted by tweets” every day that were sent out by the president and tried to stop him — but daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, and others on his staff, wouldn’t let her get in the way.

“All of the people around him attacked me, it was like ‘keep her away from him,’ ‘don’t give her access,’ ‘don’t let her talk to him.’ Ivanka’s there, Jared’s there,” she told Matthews when he questioned if anyone ever tries to ask Trump what he’s doing.

The full episode, where the former “Apprentice” contestant recounts working for Trump, was to aired Thursday night on WHIO TV Channel 7.
