  • Omarosa said that there's "no question" that former President Donald Trump was a White House "superspreader."

  • The former political aide to Trump said that he "does not care" if he exposed others to COVID-19.

  • It follows a claim in Mark Meadow's new memoir that says Trump tested positive days earlier than previously thought.

Omarosa Manigault Newman said Thursday that there was "no question" that former President Donald Trump was the "superspreader" within the White House in the days leading to his positive COVID-19 diagnosis being announced.

And Trump's former political aide added that she believes he "does not care" if he exposed his staff, Secret Service agents, or any other "essential personnel" to the virus.

Speaking on MSNBC's "The Choice," Manigault Newman was discussing the revelation in the former chief of staff Mark Meadow's new book that Trump tested positive for COVID-19 days before it was public knowledge.

During an interview with MSNBC host Zerlina Maxwell, Manigault Newman said that she would "not be surprised" if the former president had knowingly exposed his staff to the coronavirus.

"There's no question that Donald Trump was the superspreader around this time within the White House, particularly around his close circle," she said.

Trump announced on October 2 that both he and the first lady had tested positive for COVID-19. On the same day, it was announced that his 2020 campaign manager Bill Stepien tested positive, and in the following days, several other White House staffers tested positive.

Mark Meadows claims that Trump tested positive for COVID-19 on September 26, six days earlier than previously acknowledged.

Manigault Newman said during her MSNBC interview that the "worst and most despicable part of the story" is that Trump attended an event for Gold Star families, whom he would later blame for infecting him with the virus.

"This is a horrible story, but it also shows that Donald Trump only cares about himself," she said.

When asked if she would have been angry had she contracted COVID-19 from the former president, Manigault Newman joked that his staffers "would have probably considered themselves blessed if they had contracted" it from him.

"Any normal person would be livid but, remember, the folks that were still working for him at this point had already taken his Kool-Aid, already drank the Kool-Aid, they were all in," she said.
