Omarosa Manigault Newman: 'We’ll Have To Wait And See' If Things Will Be OK Under Trump

Former Trump adviser tells Stephen Colbert she was sometimes "very, very concerned" while working in the White House.

Reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman admits she was “very, very concerned” while working for President Donald Trump.

On “The Late Show” Wednesday night, Newman discussed some of the startling revelations she made about the Trump administration during her recent “Celebrity Big Brother” stint.

“The White House I worked in, the Trump administration, was troubling. It was very difficult. My analogy of it being a plantation, meaning an ecosystem where people feel oppressed, is pretty clear,” she told host Stephen Colbert.

The former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison was frank about her latest sojourn into politics. So when Colbert prepared to list some of Trump’s most controversial quotes and actions and asked her to raise her hand when he mentioned something that she thought Trump shouldn’t have done, Newman said, “I should start now because most of them he shouldn’t have done.”
