Donald Trump surrogate and former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault said that the Republican nominee would keep a list of his fellow party members who voted against him.
“It’s so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get in to the White House, we know where we stand,” she told the Independent Journal Review at Trump’s election night party in Manhattan.
A number of prominent Republicans, including Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), publicly announced that they did not cast ballots for Trump, after denouncing him for months.
“If [Graham] felt his interests was with that candidate, God bless him,” Omarosa told IJR. “I would never judge anybody for exercising their right to and the freedom to choose who they want. But let me just tell you, Mr. Trump has a long memory and we’re keeping a list.”
As former 2016 presidential candidates, Graham and Kasich signed a non-binding pledge to support whoever became the Republican nominee. Other failed contenders including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) used the pledge to justify their support for a man they have heavily criticized.
