Former reality TV star and current White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman plans to leave her role with the Trump administration by spring, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
Manigault has reportedly resigned from her position as the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says her resignation is effective Jan. 20 -- exactly one year since President Trump's inauguration.
