Omarosa Manigualt Newman has resigned from the Trump administration, according to the White House.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the news in a statement to reporters.
“We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service,” Sanders said.
Omarosa, an assistant to President Donald Trump and the Director of OPL Communications was an early Trump loyalist, having ties to the president that stretch back to the early days of the Apprentice. But she clashed at times with the Washington political establishment in the White House.
She also famously clashed with White House reporter April Ryan, who suggested that there were fireworks over her departure.
“I heard there was drama and she was escorted out of the building and off campus,” Ryan said on Twitter after the news was announced.
Omarosa married Florida pastor John Allen Newman in April during her tenure at the White House.
According to the White House, Omarosa’s departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018
