Former “Apprentice” contestant and Donald Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault has landed a job at the Trump White House, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Manigault, who appeared on the very first season of ‘The Apprentice,” will be serving in a role working with public engagement, unnamed sources told the AP.

She previously worked on Trump’s campaign doing African-American outreach. She also notably appeared in a PBS documentary during the campaign where she claimed the presidency would be the ultimate form of revenge for Trump.

“Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to president Trump,” Manigault said in a promo for the documentary. “It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.

Manigault is no stranger to the White House, as she previously served as a scheduler in the office of then-Vice President Al Gore.

The Trump transition team did not respond to the AP about Manigault’s role.
