Omarosa backs Biden, predicts Trump will lose

She worked in the Trump administration, but Omarosa Manigault Newman is predicting that Joe Biden will win the presidential election and says she’ll be among those casting a ballot for the Democratic presidential nominee.

“I certainly believe that Biden-Harris will win on Tuesday,” she told “Extra” in an interview Monday.

Manigault Newman — a former contestant on the Donald Trump-hosted “The Apprentice” — was hired by the then-real estate developer’s campaign in 2016 and later joined the White House. She left in 2017 and published a tell-all book, “Unhinged,” in 2018, which accused President Trump of using racist and misogynist language about Black people and women.

If Trump loses the White House race, he will “make life very, very difficult for us,” Manigault Newman said.

“It’s going to be a tumultuous transition. Trust me,” she added.

Asked by “Extra’s” Cheslie Kryst if she saw a change in Trump once he entered the White House, Manigault Newman replied, “The power went straight to his head.”

She called it a “special moment” to see Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — like the ex-reality TV star, a graduate of Howard University — run alongside Biden as the vice presidential nominee.

When questioned about who she would be voting for, Manigault Newman said, “I don’t think you should ever ask anyone who they voted for” before telling the entertainment news show, “Just know that I voted for the graduate of Howard University, because I’m a Bison through and through!”
