As the Republican National Convention kicked off its first day in Cleveland, Trump made an announcement that had many scratching their chin: Omarosa Manigault was named his Director of African American Outreach.

We all know that Omarosa and Trump have been close ever since she appeared on his Celebrity Apprentice show, and from there she went on to be his vice chairman of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump.

“It is a very difficult time for our country… But the good thing that I know, is that I know Donald Trump as a friend, I know his heart. I’ve known him for 13 years. You may read the headlines, I know his heart. I know the person that he is, and I know what he can do in this role to lead this country to a better and better place.”

Let’s see if Omarosa, who herself is always at odds with black and brown communities, can help Trump bridge his gap between himself and black America.
