Donald Trump has tapped Omarosa Manigault — one of reality TV’s most notorious villains — as his director of “African American Outreach.”
Omarosa, who worked as a scheduling correspondent in the Bill Clinton White House, rose to fame in 2004 during the debut season of THE APPRENTICE.
In addition to being a reality television star, Omarosa is also an ordained Baptist minister.
She previously served as vice chair of Trump’s National Diversity Coalition
Her task will be to bring black voters to a candidate who has almost no measurable support within that community.
Recent polls in Pennsylvania and Ohio have shown zero percent for the outspoken billionaire.
Omarosa, predictably, is skeptical of the findings.
“My reality is that I am surrounded by people who want to see Donald Trump as the next president of the United States who are African American,” she revealed during an interview today on MSNBC.
“Donald Trump really has an incredible vision for this country. Donald Trump is focused on improving the economic conditions of African Americans in this country.”
The Republican National Convention kicks off tonight in Cleveland, Ohio.
