Transcript: Trump Aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman Causes Uproar at Black Journalists Convention

(Reuters) White House aide Omarosa Manigault appearance at the National Association of Black Journalists ended in anger after she refused to answer questions related to President Trump’s administration.

She began the panel recounting how she lost her father and brother to street violence in Ohio, but when the panel’s moderator Ed Gordon asked questions related to the African-American community and Trump's recent remarks encouraging police to be tougher while arresting criminal suspects, Manigault said she would not “disclose confidential information”.

Manigault was confronted by laughter, boos and people standing with their backs turned to her as she spoke in comparison to those who just walked out.

According to the New York Times, Manigault accused Gordon of attacking her, being aggressive and of brushing aside her relatives’ deaths.

When Mr.

Gordon said she was wrong, she replied, “I have it on tape, boo.” His response: “O.K., boo, play it.” “The Apprentice” contestant walked off the stage in the middle of the panel, ending it abruptly.

Ed Gordon closed the event by joking “I’ll see y’all at the White House Christmas party in December.”
