Black Journalists Pull Out Of NABJ Panel After Omarosa Signs On

  • Omarosa It's wrong for Trump to joke about police roughing up suspects

In a tense panel discussion at the National Association of Black Journalists' (NABJ) convention in New Orleans, Manigault was pressed on Trump's comments, before saying that the president should not have encouraged such use of force, according to reporters attending the panel.

She said issues of police brutality are important to the Trump White House. "You inform them of what's going on in the community so they can be an advocate".

Nevertheless, question turned to the Trump administrations policies, including efforts by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to revive the war on drugs and "broken windows" policing.

The source said: 'The majority there don't want her involved. The panel was supposed to feature Valerie Castile, Sandra Sterling, and the New Yorker's Jelani Cobb. She was asked about the Trump administration's policies on policing, and, at one point, said she couldn't share private conversations with the president. At one point, Gordon and Manigault both stood and paced the stage, talking each other down face-to-face.

Asked by a BuzzFeed News reporter on the panel about what influence she has in the administration on policing, she said that because she does not work at the Justice Department, "it's not even part of my portfolio".

Things reportedly got so bad that some in the audience either walked out of the event or stood and turned their backs to the stage in protest of her appearance. Thus far, the actions of this White House have been deeply detrimental to black people and reversed progress on ending police violence.

Cobb told the New York Post that the reason for pulling out "wasn't simply the addition of Omarosa" but that he didn't exactly support her presence.

Manigault-Newman was on her feet, microphone in hand, pacing the stage in a heated argument with moderator Ed Gordon, host of BET's "Weekly". But only seconds before the panel started, those plans were changed and panelists were told that Manigault wanted to join them onstage.

Gordon later suggested that there was a debate among the panel organizers about whether Manigault-Newman would be asked about the Trump administration during the event. Sarah Glover, the president of NABJ, wrote an open letter personally inviting the president, but it's unclear if the White House had ever given an official response about the president's attendance. "She wanted to kill my career".
