Omarosa Manigault, a 43-year-old Nigerian woman who was director of communications for the White House’s office of public liaison, has resigned.
According to sources in the white house, the $180,000 per annum (N64m) earner will be vacating from the White House job on January 20, 2018, exactly a year after the president took up office.
Reasons for her resignation are not 100% clear, but the Trump aide, who is married to a Florida local pastor John Newman, has been having issues with keeping her family and job intact
Sources have said her departure is related to the “internal strife” currently plaguing the Trump cabinet. Her decision is yet to be seen as sparking a round of departures from the White House this new year as at least 14 people now have left Trump’s Government.
The White House deputy national security adviser Dina Powell will also be leaving her position early next year. Omarosa had been in charge of African-American outreach during Trump’s campaign.
