White House official Omarosa Manigault said Friday she is "proud" of the recent Women’s March on Washington, which saw hundreds of thousands of demonstrators flooding the nation's capital in protest of President Trump.

“Seeing those women march last week, it made me very proud,” Manigault said during an appearance on ABC's "The View.

"It’s one of the most important, fundamental rights that we have in this country," she continued. “[It is] the right to assemble, the freedom of speech and the right to protest. I love seeing that. That same freedom should be afforded to all Americans.”


Manigault, who was named assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, urged co-hosts of “The View” to also cover Friday’s anti-abortion March for Life in Washington.

“There is a march going on right now, the March for Life, that I hope that you all will give the same type of coverage,” she told the show’s panel.

Manigault appeared on the first season of Trump’s reality TV series “The Apprentice” in 2004 before ultimately joining his presidential campaign last year. She previously worked in the Clinton administration in former Vice President Al GoreAlbert (Al) Arnold GoreIntroducing the 'Great Reset,' world leaders' radical plan to transform the economy The 'blue wall' is reforming in the Rust Belt CNN coronavirus town hall to feature science author David Quammen, 'Empire' actress Taraji Henson MORE's office.

Manigault, who led the Trump campaign’s outreach to African-American voters last year, has also said she is an ex-Democrat who previously voted for President Obama.

Last weekend's women's march drew some 500,000 demonstrators to Washington the day after Trump's inauguration and an estimated 3 million people in cities across the country.

Participants targeted Trump on issues including women’s healthcare, reproductive rights and civil liberties.
