Omarosa Defends Trump’s Charlottesville Rhetoric

Omarosa Manigault, advisor to President Trump, appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday to discuss President Trump’s response to the white supremacist rallies in Virginia this past weekend.

Trump came under fire from critics for not using the terms “white supremacists” and “KKK” in his original response to the violence — but completely denounced the hate groups in his statement to the press yesterday.

Manigault reminded viewers that President Obama was hesitant to use the same terms in response to other similar events, something liberals are quick to forget. The Trump adviser also discussed being unfairly booed by fellow African American journalists at a conference over the weekend. Watch the clip above.
