“[Chief of Staff] John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I raised and, as a result, I resigned,” Manigault said before adding that there “were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with.”
Manigault also spoke on the possibility of sharing her experiences at the White House at some point, saying:
“But when I have my story to tell as the only African-American woman in this White House; as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”
Although it was initially reported that Manigault had resigned from her position, other reports stated that she was fired and escorted off the White House grounds.
A former The Apprentice contestant, Manigault served on Trump’s transition executive committee and later hired as communications director for the Office of Public Liaison in the White House. She will stay on until January 20.
