As president-elect Donald Trump continues to build a cabinet that’s as controversial as it is wealthy, Trump has made an addition to his transition team: Omarosa Manigault. Omarosa, besides being Trump’s Apprentice co-star after competing on season one of the reality series, was also tapped as Trump’s director of African American outreach during the campaign. And if Kanye West’s meeting with Trump is any indication, Omarosa did her job.
Omarosa’s addition was announced Thursday, reported Politico, though what exactly her position is has not yet been made known. After she was named director of African American outreach, Omarosa denied polls showing Trump polling at zero percent among African Americans in Ohio and Pennsylvania. At the time, Omarosa said Trump was "focused on improving the economic conditions of African Americans," citing high unemployment rates. Months later, Trump would make headlines for mistaking a black supporter for a protester and for being endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan.
Last month Omarosa herself made headlines for saying Trump was “keeping a list” (and checking it twice) of all his “enemies.”
"Let me just tell you, Mr. Trump has a long memory and we're keeping a list," she said. "It's so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get into the White House, we know where we stand."
On Thursday Omarosa, who has changed her Twitter bio to reflect her new status on the transition team, called Trump the “great unifier.”
