Omarosa Manigault Newman told MSNBC Trump “needs to get clear” about his health.
She gave no evidence or details of his alleged problems. Trump, 75, has maintained he is healthy.
Trump recently lost a legal battle to enforce a nondisclosure agreement with Manigault Newman.
Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said on Sunday that if Donald Trump wants to run for president again in 2024, he must “make it clear to the American people” about his health.
She did not provide details of what worried her, or provided any evidence of any particular reason why Trump, who is 75, should be concerned.
“I don’t know if he will even be healthy enough to run in 2024,” she said, according to MSNBC. “I think he needs to make it clear to the American people where he stands before he decides to go into a very stressful and strenuous race for the White House.”
Trump himself has repeatedly said he is in good health.
Watch the full interview with Manigault Newman below:
Last month Trump lost a expensive legal battle of three years to enforce a nondisclosure agreement with Manigault Newman, who was one of the first of many former staff members to belittle him in a tell-all book.
Her book, titled “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” was published while Trump was still in the White House and is a very critical report of the year she worked for him between 2017 and 2018.
“You get that call. Come down and look, because we have a bad report … Things happen, by God, they happen,” Trump told David Brody, a host for the right-wing network Real America’s Voice.
His implication was that such a thing hadn’t happened yet—seemingly contradicting Manigault Newman.
He added: “I feel so good and I hate what is happening to our country. Our country has never been in a position like this. We were so good ten months ago and now we are so bad.”
Trump was hospitalized in October 2020 after contracting COVID-19, but later recovered and vaccinated.
After his three-day stay at Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump said he defeated COVID-19 “because I’m a perfect physical specimen and I’m extremely young.” That reports The Guardian.
