The woman known mainly by her first name—Omarosa—went from self-described reality TV actress to White House staffer, all alongside Donald Trump. She adds tell-all author to her resume on August 14, 2018, when her expose’ on working in the Trump White House—titled Unhinged— comes out.
But Omarosa is not just another former White House official making claims that the Trump administration can dismiss as fake news.
The Daily Beast broke the story of the recordings on Wednesday.

While no tweet from President Trump addressing the recordings or Omarosa’s book exists yet, people quickly found a 2013 Twitter post that then-reality TV performer Trump made about her, that he may want to take back after today’s news:
Honest Omarosa: she won't backstab-she'll come at you from the front.

As others observed:

There really is a Trump tweet for everything. He’s like Nostradamus for his own political downfall.

In fact, people found more than one tweet. In another 2013 Twitter post, Trump marvels at the idea of anyone being afraid of Omarosa.
I’ll bet he’s afraid now. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/y5F55dZUt4

Omarosa Manigault-Newman first came to public attention in 2004 after appearing on the first season of NBC’s reality television series, The Apprentice, starring Donald Trump. But that was only the beginning of their relationship.
