Omarosa Believes 'Racial' Not 'Racist' Is Best Descriptor of Trump

If you ask former White House senior advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman, our president is not a racist…he’s just erm, racial.

After her highly controversial departure from the White House on Tuesday, the former “Apprentice” star spoke with ABC News’ Nightline about being one of few Black staffers in the Trump administration.

“It’s been very, very challenging being the only African-American woman in the senior staff,” she told ABC on Thursday.

Newman said the lack of diversity often left her to feel “lonely” and that it seemed other White House staffers “didn’t know how to interact” with minorities.

After addressing the administration does have a diversity problem, she weighed in on the president’s reputation as an outright racist.
