After the White House announced Wednesday that “Apprentice” star turned White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman will leave the Trump administration, The Wall Street Journal reported that her departure was abrupt – describing her exit as confrontational – but the Secret Service pushed back on the report.

An unnamed White House official told the Journal that Manigault Newman was “physically dragged and escorted off the campus” late Tuesday.

The details of Manigault Newman’s departure remain murky. Asked by Fox News whether she was fired, a White House aide referred back to a brief statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

It said: “Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities. Her departure will not be effective until January 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.” 

The Secret Service issued a statement late Wednesday saying it was “not involved in the termination process or the escort off of the complex. Our only involvement in this matter was to deactivate the individual’s pass which grants access to the complex.”
