  • Donald Trump and Omarosa Manigault Newman first met in the early 2000s.

  • Manigault Newman said Trump was ‘obsessed’ with a white supremacist display in a museum.

  • Additionally, Manigault Newman said Trump told her classified national security information.

In a TikTok from the Australian show “Big Brother VIP,” Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed several shocking revelations about her time in the White House under former President Donald Trump, including an incidence of leaked classified information.

The pair was first acquainted in the early 2000s when Manigault Newman was a contestant on Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice.” Their association continued through the production of two additional TV shows and Trump’s presidential campaign, according to an ABC News timeline of their relationship.

Following the 2016 election, Manigault Newman became an official in the Trump administration, serving as assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison until January 20, 2018, ABC News reported.

Her departure was announced days after Trump and several White House officials traveled to Jackson, Mississippi, for the opening of a civil rights museum, a trip Manigault Newman said she helped organize.

“It didn’t go so well because he was fascinated with looking at the KKK garb,” Manigault Newman said during a clip of her latest reality TV appearance. “He was obsessed with the white supremacist kind of display.”

She also alleged that Trump would ask for her advice on subjects outside her purview, such as Pentagon activities and veterans affairs, which she said “she had no business advising him on.”

Additionally, Manigault Newman alleged that Trump told her when he decided to bomb Syria, despite the fact that she did not have the classification level to know such information about national security.

“And so, I bounced. I said, ‘Donald, I’m out. You need to really talk to your advisers,'” Manigault Newman said in the “Big Brother VIP” TikTok.
