Omarosa Manigault is joining Donald Trump’s White House staff in a role focused on “public engagement,” according to the Associated Press.
The former “Apprentice” contestant previously worked for Trump’s presidential campaign as his director of African-American outreach and has been outspoken about her support for the president-elect.
“Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump,” she said in a Frontline documentary that aired in September. “It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
Manigault previously described herself as a Democrat and briefly worked in the office of then-Vice President Al Gore during the administration of Bill Clinton.
The Trump transition team did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
