Omarosa book: Trump showed signs of mental decline

The Associated Press

Washington – A former White House staffer is claiming in a new book that President Donald Trump has exhibited a “mental decline that could not be denied.”

The former Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the Trump White House provides an eye-opening look into the corruption and controversy of the current administration.

An excerpt from Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s new book was published Thursday by DailyMail.com.

The former reality television star, who appeared on Trump’s “The Apprentice” and later served as an assistant to the president, says she was disturbed by a famous interview Trump gave to Lester Holt.

She writes that, while watching the interview on television, she “realized that something real and serious was going on in Donald’s brain” and that his “mental decline could not be denied.”

Omarosa Manigault listens as President Donald Trump holds an African American History Month listening session in this February 1, 2017 file photo. Manigault is claiming in a new book that Trump has exhibited a “mental decline that could not be denied.”

She says, “I kept thinking, ‘Oh no! Oh no! This is bad!”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
