Yesterday, Trump revealed the list of 11 more White House staffs, who will be working alongside Reince Priebus and Katie Walsh. The White House staffs are responsible for running day to day operations in the West Wing.
Reince Priebus said, “These individuals will be key leaders in helping to implement the President-elect’s agenda and bring real change to Washington. Each of them has been instrumental over the last several months, and in some cases years, in helping the President-elect.”
Of all the employees, Omarosa Manigault was particularly recognized by the media. She was fired from Trump’s reality show The Apprentice in 2004 and subsequently from The Celebrity Apprentice in 2011 and 2013. Would someone who gets fired from the same job be able to handle the White House operations?
Who are the others?
