John Kelly has not used the slogan fetish of Donald Trump, “You’re fired”. But the “chief of staff” of the White House has been the one to return, in December last year, Omarosa Manigault Newman. This former candidate of the reality show presented and produced by the american president, “The Apprentice”, was recorded without his knowledge the military during the announcement of his departure. The former communications director of the Office of Public Liaison and adviser to the billionaire revealed this tape to NBC News, to whom she has granted an interview on the occasion of the release of his book, in which she tells of her last year at the White House under the orders of president Donald Trump.
To explain his willingness to return Omarosa Manigault Newman, backed by the president, John Kelly had discussed “major problems of integrity”. A probably a reference to the photo session held at the White House in April 2017, on the occasion of the marriage of the young woman. At the time, Politico revealed that this event had provoked the wrath of John Kelly, who had already in the viewfinder, the Office of Public Liaison, an organization whose goal is to “cultivate external support for the program of the president”, in religious circles, or business. Photos taken with the 39 guests of the wedding were not able to be broadcast over the internet, both for reasons of safety and ethics.
Omarosa Manigault Newman claims to have saved John Kelly to protect themselves, because she felt threatened : “They led me in the Situation Room, the doors are closed, they tell me that I can not leave and start to threaten me, to instill fear in me, to force me to. I’m protected because it is a White House where everyone lies : the president lies to the american people, Sarah Huckabee is the face of the country and lies every day. You need to take care of you, otherwise you will return and you discover 17 knives in the back.” It is thought to have been threatened by John Kelly, who would have understood that his reputation might be sullied if she did not leave quietly, the administration Trump. “It is very important to protect it in the world Trump, because each one builds its own reality. The people around him are trying to reinforce this constructed reality”, she completed in the “New York Times“.
“I was complicit and I regret it”
A time close to Donald Trump, whom she knew since 2003 and its participation in the inaugural season of “The Apprentice”, Omarosa Manigault Newman the critic openly now. She claims to have heard a video, filmed in early 2015, in which the american president uses the term “negro”, thus confirming “what he feared” : “Donald Trump is a hustler who pretends to be someone open to the community,” she assured the antenna of NBC News. “When he speaks thus, as he did on the recording, it confirms that he really is racist,” she added. She did not mince words to express his regret at having worked for a year within the administration Trump -it was the black person for the highest office : “With the benefit of hindsight, I’ll tell you, I have been complicit in this administration that misled the nation. They continue to do that, as his mental capacities have declined, it is difficult for him to process information difficult. He is not involved in some of the most important decisions that have an impact on our country. I was complicit and I regret that.”
Reviews hard as the spokesman of the White House, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has swept in a statement: “instead of telling the truth about all the good that the President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, the book is full of lies and false accusations. It is sad to see that a disgruntled former employee of the White House is trying to take advantage of these false attacks, and much worse than the media give him a forum, after not have taken it seriously when she had positive things to say about the President during his time spent within the administration.” Donald Trump, he, too, was recorded without his knowledge by Omarosa Manigault Newman, has treated of “rogue”.
