Omarosa Manigault is now the director of African-American outreach for the Donald Trump campaign. Sharing the news on Monday, she tells MSNBC:

I am the director of African-American outreach for Donald Trump. I am proud to serve in that role. It is a very difficult time for our country, but the good thing I know is that I know Donald Trump at his heart … and I know what he can do in that role.

When asked about polls that show Trump has zero percent support from African Americans in Ohio (where she is from) and Pennsylvania, Manigault said she was confused about who had been polled because

I just spent an amazing weekend with African Americans for Trump, about 300 of them.

She added,

My reality is I’m surrounded by people who want to see Donald Trump as the next president of the United States who are African American. Donald Trump is focused on improving the conditions of African Americans in this country … unemployment in African-American community is at an all time high.
