Omarosa on Her Time in the Trump White House
When asked by Ross Matthews why she chose to work at the White House, Omarosa described her decision as a “call of duty.” She also stated that she believed she was “serving [her] country, not serving him [President Trump].”
Matthews then asked Omarosa if anyone tried to get the President to change his behaviors. Her response is as follows:

Finally, Omarosa opined that the current state of the White House is “bad.”
“Should we be worried,” asked Matthews.
