Omarosa’s back, charges Trump showed signs of mental decline

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Omarosa Manigault, political aide and communications director for the Office of Public Liaison at the White House under President Donald Trump’s administration, spoke at the Women’s Power Luncheon of the 2017 National Action Network convention, in April 2017, in New York. Omarosa Manigault-Newman has a memoir coming that her publisher calls “explosive” and “jaw-dropping.”

WASHINGTON >> A former White House staffer is claiming in a new book that President Donald Trump has exhibited a “mental decline that could not be denied.”

An excerpt from Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s new book was published Thursday by DailyMail.com.

The former reality television star, who appeared on Trump’s “The Apprentice” and later served as an assistant to the president, says she was disturbed by a famous interview Trump gave to Lester Holt.

She writes that, while watching the interview on television, she “realized that something real and serious was going on in Donald’s brain” and that his “mental decline could not be denied.”

She says, “I kept thinking, ‘Oh no! Oh no! This is bad!”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
