In a trailer released Tuesday for a new PBS documentary about the 2016 election, Donald Trump protégé Omarosa Manigault suggests an important motivation for him running for president is that all those who oppose Trump would have to “bow down” to him if he wins.
The documentary, titled “The Choice 2016,” is being billed as a candid look into each of the presidential candidates’ upbringings, professional lives, triumphs and failings. Events featured in the trailer include former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, the makings of Trump’s reality TV show “The Apprentice,” and the saga involving Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
The most striking comment in the trailer comes from Manigault, the former “Apprentice” contestant who now serves as the Trump campaign’s director of African-American outreach. She paints an ominous picture when she suggests that a big motivation for Trump’s candidacy is making his haters “bow down” to him.
“Donald Trump is running for president because he really, truly believes he can turn the country around,” she said. “More importantly, every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump.”
The PBS documentary is set to air Sept. 27.
