Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former reality star-turned White House staffer, said President Donald Trump exhibited a “mental decline that could not be denied,” during her time working for the administration.
In an excerpt from her upcoming book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” obtained Thursday by DailyMail.com, Manigault-Newman said she became alarmed while watching the now-famous interview Trump gave to Lester Holt.
“While watching the interview I realized that something real and serious was going on in Donald’s brain,” she wrote in her tell-all book. “His mental decline could not be denied.”
“Many didn’t notice it as keenly as I did because I knew him way back when,” she went on to write. “They thought Trump was being Trump, off the cuff. But I knew something wasn’t right.”
