Reality star turned White House official turned reality star Omarosa Manigault-Newman says she was "haunted" by President Trump's Twitter usage - and she fears for the country.
Asked today about Manigault-Newman's comments in the Big Brother clip, White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shahsaid, "Omarosa was sacked three times on The Apprentice, and this was the fourth time we let her go".
The Trump administration issued a rebuttal to Newman's comments during the White House press briefing on Thursday (8 February).

She tells him that she and Shannon Elizabeth have teamed up, but they are afraid that they might eventually become everyone's targets. "Believe me", she says, "it's game on".
"It's not gonna be okay, it's not", she said.
And Newman is not joking when she says so, either.
Here's the shade coming from the administration via political aide Raj Shah: "Omarosa was sacked three times on The Apprentice".
She does little to assuage the concerns of her housemate, who asks if everything is going to be okay.

Even more eye-opening: When asked why she took the job in the first place, she stressed it was a "call to duty".
During her stint in the White House, Manigault-Newman's undefined responsibilities, and she wandered into meetings to which she was not invited.
"Celebrity Big Brother" is out to spill secrets this season, because producers are plying the contestants with truth serum in the form of booze. And after the sneak peek hit the web, the White House is firing back. "She has no contact now", Shah added. At least at the Celebrity Big Brother house if not at the White House! We soon got confirmation about which two of the 11 houseguests are facing elimination and which one is likeliest to get the boot on Friday's show.
