The video features Omarosa calling Trump a “friend” with “incredible character” and “great vision.” She said she was “honored” to be part of the administration.
She is also featured leading a “Trump Train” chant during the 2016 campaign.
President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump responded to Omarosa in a statement released by the Trump campaign.
“Woman to woman, I shared a connection with Omarosa as a friend and a campaign sister, and I am absolutely shocked and saddened by her betrayal and violation on a deeply personal level,” Lara Trump said. “I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on.”
