We all knew that after Omarosa Newman exited the White House, her “tea” cup would runneth over. The former director of communications was fired this week seemingly abruptly. However, Omarosa along with others say that there were many incidents  that led up to her “resignation”/ firing. In a recent statement, she said she regretted not seeing the level of diversity in the White House that she “strove to see”

However she stands by her original statement that Trump isn’t a racist. In an interview with ABC’s “Nightline” on Thursday night, following her White House exit earlier in the week, Omarosa told host Deborah Roberts that some of the things Trump does may be racially charged but that she doesn’t believe he is racist. “Donald Trump is racial, but he is not a racist,” the former “Apprentice” star said of the president who in August defended the “very fine people of both sides” during the Charlottesville white nationalist rally. “

Newman, who was the only black senior adviser to the president, also acknowledged the lack of diversity in the White House, noting that often times she felt “lonely.”
