Black Journalists' Panel With Omarosa Manigault Ends In Anger

Omarosa It's wrong for Trump to joke about police roughing up suspects

As prominent black journalists and public relations professionals watched, Manigault-Newman, on a panel about police violence, was asked about her role in the Trump administration, and what she has done for the black community.

Gordon maintained that it was appropriate to ask questions about her work in the White House, though later said that the event was reaching "the point of diminished returns".

Manigault said that Trump's comments were not acceptable, but when pressed further about their discussions, she said that she would not "disclose confidential conversations with the president of the United States". "Also, the panel was very disorganized, and basic things like format were not clear".

While Manigault-Newman admitted Trump's remarks were not appropriate, she also took civil rights activists to task for refusing to meet with the president.

She began by telling the story of the loss of her father and brother to violence in Youngstown, Ohio, a story that she said has allowed her to understand the pain of families who have lost children or loved ones to gun violence.

Panelists had been told Manigault was going to appear onstage alone with moderator Ed Gordon.

Her friendship with Ryan came to an end after the CNN contributor advised Manigault against taking a job at the White House.

"It's on the front burner because I'm pushing the issue and raising the issue", Manigault-Newman said.

But now another Trump administration voice is suggesting that we shouldn't pay Tillerson much mind. President, you've said you want to send a strong message to North Korea.

"You saw what I saw". She added that the Justice Department is not part of her White House portfolio.

Manigault-Newman interrupted Gordon as he tried to ask her how she could sit in "a White House with a man who clearly is sending a signal to this country that" police don't have to treat suspects gently.

"[It] wasn't simply the addition of Omarosa", he said.

She added, "Most people don't know my background".

She added, "When you try to kill me and my career because you want to advance yourself, because you are now making money after not making money from selling cellphones, and now you're making $180,000 a year, good for you".

She later mentioned that her tweet prompted a discussion between herself and a former NABJ president.

"Well you're right here, why don't you tell us?" "People started to drop out because they didn't want to participate in it because they thought it was going to turn into exactly quite frankly what it is turning into", he said at another point.
