According to Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief April Ryan, Omarosa got into some kind of conflict with White House officials, who then had her escorted from the building.

Omarosa first became associated with Donald Trump back in 2004, when she was a contestant on his reality TV series “The Apprentice.” She again appeared in 2013, when she was invited to appear on Trump's “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” series.
She was a major surrogate for Trump during the 2016 presidential election, and was given a plum job as a political aide in Trump’s White House.
