President Trump sent out a statement on Twitter, in regards to the resignation of Omarosa Manigault Newman, who announced Tuesday that she’ll be leaving her job as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison on Jan. 20, 2018.
“Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities,” Sanders said in a statement released to the media. “Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.”
Wednesday evening, a message came from the president.
“Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success,” President Trump tweeted.
Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success.

Rumors are circulating through the media that there was plenty of “drama” surrounding Omarosa’s departure, but none of that has been confirmed. Some of the reports are that she was fired by Chief of Staff John Kelly, while others say she was upset about various matters, including Trump’s handling of the Charlottesville riots, the battle with Rep. Frederica Wilson, and Trump’s endorsement of Roy Moore in Alabama. Those reports are all unconfirmed.
Last week, the longtime Trump loyalist, who was a former contestant on his NBC reality show, “The Apprentice,” tweeted out her appreciation of a dinner she had enjoyed with the Trump family.

Her tweet was in response to a video Trump’s digital media director, Dan Scavino, had posted, from the event.
