She asked, "Is this a panel or is this just me?" "Walking into a room where you get shut down does not open a line of communication so change can happen".

Heading into the forum, numerous conference attendees said they were steeling themselves for the appearance of Ms. Manigault-Newman, who became famous on "The Apprentice" and has had several fiery exchanges with journalists.

During a panel-moderated by journalist Ed Gordon-that delved into the tarnished relationship between police officials and communities of color, she was questioned about how she is using her platform as an aide in Trump's administration to help the African American community, the outlet writes. Others said she had no business being there in the first place (as she isn't a journalist) and as an actual representative of the White House, she refused to add anything substantive to the discussion - and so earned her cold shoulders.

She added, "When you try to kill me and my career because you want to advance yourself, because you are now making money after not making money from selling cellphones, and now you're making $180,000 a year, good for you". When Gordon, according to news reports, requested that he be able to finish his question, Manigault-Newman said, "I don't want to hear your question".

In response, Mr. Gordon began to walk closer to her. Ms. Manigault-Newman, who had been seated, stood up and walked across the stage and said Mr. Gordon was being "aggressive".

A resident of Nairobi's Kawangware slum said police fired tear gas at dozens of Odinga supporters throwing stones on Thursday. IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said despite the few challenges the election process was generally successful.


A group of people stood with their backs turned to the stage as Manigault-Newman continued to spar with the moderators and panelists. "You inform them of what's going on in the community so they can be an advocate". "If you're not on the table, you're on the menu".

"I said, please don't be too nice", Trump said in a video of his speech to police officers on Long Island July 28. For her part, Manigault knows she isn't popular with other African-Americans, and she resents their lack of support.

Black journalists in attendance at the event took to Twitter to show what happened during Manigault's appearance on the panel.

Before giving the microphone to Glover, Gordon called the panel a "quagmire" that had "reached the point of diminished returns". But said she could not elaborate on private conversations with the president.

He ended the event by joking, "I'll see y'all at the White House Christmas Party in December" the paper reported.
