Thrown Out Or Resigned? Omarosa Is Finally Leaving The Sunken Place That Is The Trump Administration
Are there any other black people left?
We've all sat back and watched as Omarosa Manigault was one the few black people working in President Donald Trump's White House. However, a year after Trump's election, it seems all of that is over as the DailyMail reports that Manigault is leaving the administration.
Manigault was the only senior African American staffer, and rumors have circulated that she struggled in the administration. However, "after Roy Moore, enough was enough," the senior aide said.
Apparently, it may not have been the most graceful exit either.

While the circumstances surrounding her exit continue to develop, we do know that her resignation will not be effective until Jan. 20, 2018 — the anniversary of Trump's inauguration. White House press secretary Sara Sanders made this remark about Omarosa's departure. "Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities," Sanders said. "Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service." Sources added that this wasn't a sudden decision to leave, she's been planning it for quite a while. It was her "loyalty and friendship with Trump" that kept her there longer than expected.
It seems like things may also get messier in the process. Stay tuned as more details become available.
