Omarosa Manigault Set to Join Donald Trump's White House Staff
The former "Apprentice" star is making her way to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Manigault, who serves on the transition team's executive committee, was an early supporter of her mentor, appearing regularly with him on the campaign trail and serving as a part of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump, an independent organization. She proved instrumental in negotiating Trump's limited in-person outreach to African-Americans while he was a candidate, coordinating and appearing with him at Great Faith International Ministries in Detroit, his first visit to an African-American church.
Her position with Trump was not her first choice, however. According to a transition official, Manigault expressed a desire to be the ambassador to Haiti, where she has done missionary and service work.
