Omarosa Manigault Allegedly Injured

President Donald Trump's assistant and communications director for the Office of the Public Liaison was allegedly injured and taken to a medical center.

Former "Apprentice" cast member Omarosa Manigault, 42, reportedly injured her leg, but it is unknown how the injury occurred, the New York Daily News reports.

It is believed she may have injured it in January, as reports indicate she was spotted wearing an orthopedic boot on Jan. 27.

She was reportedly taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, for treatment.

Manigault was one of the most ardent African-American supporters of the Trump presidential campaign, initially supporting Clinton before switching.

It is unclear whether Manigault has broken a bone, but it appears she can walk normally as she was present at Trump's Feb. 2 National African American History Month "listening session."

At the same session, Manigault and Trump reportedly discussed an executive order regarding historically black colleges and universities, Buzzfeed News reports.

Trump allegedly asked about the status of one of their best colleges, Howard University, expressing outrage that former President Barack Obama had not done more the campus.

“He was shocked and upset to learn what happened under the previous administration,”  Paris Dennard, a political commentator who works on strategic communications for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, said.

Afterwards, Trump allegedly said he wants to help those historically black colleges and universities struggling. Manigault reportedly proposed an executive order that would allow him to do so, although she refused to confirm this.

“I can, however, reinforce the president’s commitment to support historically black colleges and universities, as well as school choice as he stated throughout the campaign,” Manigault said.
