Donald Trump Names Omarosa Director of African American Outreach
IF Donald Trump wins the presidential election in November, there will be at least one prominent black woman in his cabinet.
Omarosa Manigault has been named Trump’s Director of African American Outreach.
Omarosa revealed her high profile position on MSNBC on Monday.
“It happened this week,” she said. “It’s really an extension of the work that the [National Diversity Coalition for Trump] has already been doing and so I’m very happy to take up that cause for Donald Trump.”
The 42-year-old reality TV star is one of the most recognizable faces from Trump’s popular Apprentice reality TV series.
Omarosa has taken a pivotal role in Trump’s campaign since the beginning by reaching out to prominent black clergy leaders who share Trump’s conservative views.
She brings much needed diversity to a presidential campaign that has so far struck out with black voters.
A poll in Ohio, where the Republican National Convention is currently being held, shows Trump receiving 0 percent of the black vote.
But Omarosa doesn’t put much weight on random polls.
She noted there are many conservative blacks around the country who will be voting for Trump.
