Omarosa Manigault Newman will be leaving the Trump Administration in January, it was announced on Wednesday. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said her resignation will go into effect on January 20th. Manigault Newman was the director of communications at the White House Office of Public Liaison and was Trump's chief advisor on African-American issues.
Manigault Newman has been associated with President Donald Trump since her spin on the first season of the reality show "The Apprentice." At the time, she was known only as "Omarosa." She was fired in the ninth episode, but returned for the first season of the "Celebrity Apprentice" in 2008. She was fired on the tenth episode.
Shortly after her departure was announced, reports began to surface that Manigault Newman had been "physically dragged" off of the White House grounds on Tuesday evening.

Journalist April Ryan said that Gen. Kelly was the one who did the firing, and that Manigault Newman was spewing profanities at the time.
