Join Professor Bryan Monroe for an intimate conversation with bestselling author, former assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison Omarosa Manigault Newman. A book signing and a question-and-answer session will follow the conversation.
Omarosa Manigault Newman is former assistant to President Donald Trump and former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. She initially rose to fame as a contestant on the first season of NBC's reality television series “The Apprentice.” She was fired from the White House in December, 2017 by Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly. In August 2018, Newman released “Unhinged,” a tell-all book which details her tenure at the White House and criticizes Trump and his administration. Two days before the book was released, she released the first of as many as 200 secret tapes she recorded during her White House tenure. The first tape she released, which was secretly recorded inside the Situation Room, was described as among the worst White House security breaches ever and has led to much worry inside the West Wing. The book debuted atop the non-fiction list of The News York Times Best Sellers.
