Manigault Newman submitted her resignation last month as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, effective Jan. 20. Reports indicated Manigault Newman was escorted from the White House last month after an argument with Chief of Staff John Kelly, although the U.S. Secret Service denied that authorities escorted her from White House grounds.

She previously served as President Donald Trump’s chief adviser on African-American issues in the White House.
