Must see: Omarosa takes on 'The View' co-hosts in a tense exchange about President Trump

GETTYArticle By Rebecca Johnson // EEW Magazine Politics

Share Omarosa Manigault returned to "The View" for the first time since 2004, when she was a contestant on the very first season of "The Apprentice."

13 years later, she came back to Friday's show as part of President Donald Trump's administration. It wasn't exactly a friendly welcome, as evidenced by her tense exchange with the talk panel's co-hosts.

The former reality TV villain, who was director of African-American engagement for the Trump campaign during campaign season, is now officially his director of communication for the office of liaison.

You can say what you want about her, but there's no question that this intelligent, black, Christian minister knows how to stay poised under fire.

When "The View" co-host Sunny Hostin suggested Trump was just “using” her for “optics” and questioned whether he does “really care” about the African-American community, Omarosa fired back, “First of all, no one uses me.”

"I grew up in Youngstown, Ohio in the West Lake Projects, a housing project, so I am the embodiment of the American Dream" said the 42-year-old, who is engaged to be married to Dr. John Allen Newman, pastor of The Sanctuary at Calvary Church in Jacksonville.

Omaraso then proceeded to explain, "I grew up on Welfare, on Section 8 housing, my father was killed when I was 7 years old, my father went to public schools, I went to Central of Ohio, got to Howard University, and started to work in politics. So I earned my way to sit in the White House. No one gave me anything, okay?"

The audience applauded.

Addressing Joy Behar, a strong and vocal opposer of our new president, Omarosa said, “I know it’s gotta be really hard after the last year and a half of all the things that you said about Donald to see him sitting in the Oval Office."

"It is hard, it kills me,” Behar admitted.

Despite the views of those that frequently label Trump a racist, Omarosa believes the new Commander-In-Chief has a true heart for the black community.

Weighing the republican leader's focus on the African-American community against the nation's first black U.S. president Barack Obama's, Omarosa said, "When you start talking about the African-American community, the last administration decided not to do African-American outreach. They felt that if they helped all Americans, then the black community would be helped."

She continued, "That really isn't the approach that we're taking. We have a very strategic plan of engaging this community. We see what's happening in the inner city. We see that 56 percent of African-American men under 30 are either unemployed or not in school, and we want to change that."

At the end of the segment, as Behar shot off a question about whether Trump would release his tax returns, Omarosa ignored the dig and focused on her fiancé, who was seated in the audience.

“He brings me such joy,” she said of her smiling beau Dr. Newman. Then turning to Behar, Omarosa added, “and I hope that you, one day, can find that kind of joy, Joy, in your life.”

Zinger.
