Manigault’s official title will be assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, the president-elect’s transition team announced in a statement Wednesday afternoon. The role is expected to focus on public engagement, CNN reported.
Manigault first found fame in 2004 as a contestant on Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice, before he ultimately fired her. The two remained on good terms, and Manigault served as a prominent Trump surrogate and his director of African-American outreach during his presidential campaign.

This won’t be Manigault’s first White House gig. She also once worked for former Vice President Al Gore during former President Bill Clinton’s administration, CNN reported.
In September, before Trump won the election, Manigault warned his critics that they “will have to bow down to President Trump.”
“It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him,” she said in a Frontline special at the time. “It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
