Donald Trump Appoints Ex-Apprentice Star Omarosa Manigault as Director of African-American Outreach for His Campaign
The former Apprentice star said she's "happy to take up that cause for Donald Trump"
“It happened this week,” she told MSNBC at the Republican National Convention on Monday. “It’s really an extension of the work that the [National Diversity Coalition for Trump] has already been doing and so I’m very happy to take up that cause for Donald Trump.”
Manigault previously worked as the vice-chairman for the National Diversity Coalition for Trump.

However, it seems she may have a long road ahead as MSNBC host Craig Melvin reportedly presented Manigault with a poll showing that none of the African-American voters in Ohio said Trump would get their vote.
“I’m wondering who they polled because I just spent an amazing weekend with African Americans for Trump, about 300 of them,” she said, according to THR. “So I look at the data, but my reality is that I’m surrounded by people who want to see Donald Trump as the next president of the United States who are African-American.”
