“It is not only ridiculous, but it is also absurd,” she said. “I would not want anyone, nevertheless, you have me to run around in the location and cause interference. The White house is the safest place in the world.”

Manigault Newman described the reporter as someone with a “personal vendetta against me,” cried their reports are “completely false” and “unconfirmed.”

But The Wall Street Journal also reported that it was the descent steep, and he described the output as a confrontation, say you had reasons for “physically dragged” out of the White house.

“Reporting to Secret Service personnel physically Omarosa Manigault Newman of the @WhiteHouse to remove complex is wrong. The Secret Service, not the termination of Mrs. Manigault Newman or the escort off of the system was involved. Our only involvement in this case was to disable the individual pass, allowing access to the complex,” the said in a statement.

The official statement from the White house, said they resigned, without going into detail.

Manigault Newman said, “Good Morning America” on Thursday that “you should take the word of the US secret service over someone with a personal vendetta against me, and who personally profits from these false narratives.”

“There are three complexes in the White house. I was not escorted out,” she said. “The reduction in access was absolutely correct, how it should be done that way, how people change roles in the White house.”

She went to the address to reports of tension between her and Kelly.

“Chief of Staff, John Kelly, and I sat in the Situation room, and we had an open conversation. I wanted to highlight the year—that was one of the goals I have made for me, and then says again in my life,” and notes that after the conversation, where they reared had “problems” and “worries” you to withdraw. “January 20 will take place, when I leave this very interesting administration.”

Manigault Newman joined the administration as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, which is designed to garner outside support for the President’s agenda. She pulled a top salary of $179,700.

They allegedly had observation of the chief of staff concluded.

“As an assistant to the President, we all report to the chief of staff,” she said on Thursday. “When he came, it was a lot of unrest. I am the only African-American woman sitting at the table with 30 assistants, we had to adjust to his militaristic style.”

But she called for reports of a dispute over their exit.

“Where are the pictures or videos? When I confronted John Kelly, of a very formidable person, it would garner someone a photo or a video,” she said.

Kelly allegedly Manigault Newman’s revoked ability to come and go from the Oval Office, as they pleased. During the first months of the Trump administration, a helper, were known to wander in and out of the meeting, a practice, Kelly ended up on the line. She has also, as reported, drew Kelly go’s ire occasionally around him to slip in the news article on the President.

“The President reads a lot of news, watch a lot of news, and if he had a question he would call and ask me,” she said. “I certainly had more access than most, and people had problems with it. People have a problem with my 14-year relationship with him.”

Manigault Newman praised to bring Kelly “much needed” on the West Wing, but said to Trump your right to access, with whom they have a close professional relationship that was not for more than a decade, limited or restricted.

“Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success,” Trump tweeted late Wednesday.

If you are asked about your stance on some of the President’s comments, particularly with regard to the unrest in Charlottesville, Va. in August, you noted that you have to “be careful” because they still serve, but she has a “story” about her time in the administration that you share.

“There were a lot of things that I have observed,” Manigault Newman said. “As the only African American woman in this White house, I’ve seen things that to me, bother me, and touches me deeply and emotionally. When can I tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”
