Once a die-hard Trump supporter, Omarosa Manigault Newman now says she regrets helping Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election.
The former White House aide stopped by The View Monday, where said Hillary Clinton should have won.
“Hillary Clinton was robbed and I was a co-conspirator in that robbery. I will regret that for the rest of my life,” Omarosa told The View panelists.

Omarosa called Trump a “con” and admitted she was “complicit” in his victory.
“I discovered that Donald Trump was an arsonist trying to burn down this country and at some way, I was complicit handing him matches and giving him more fuels for his fire,” she said. “At some point, you have to stop a toxic relationship.”
She plugged her book Unhinged, and played a secret recording from a White House communications meeting in October, which she said Trump “crashed,” because he was “bored.”
“He came into the meeting, he sat down, and he starts rambling from topic to topic, none of it makes
sense,” she explained. “And then, this is in October of last year, 10 months after the election, 12 months,
and he’s still talking about Hillary Clinton.”
Trump is heard on the recording discussing Clinton and the Russia investigation.
“I think Hillary is getting killed with Russia. The real Russia story is Hillary and collusion,” Trump
says, suggesting the Clinton camp violated campaign finance laws by allegedly spending $9 million on a “phony report” to prove he colluded with Russia.
“Yeah, someone just said, ‘She’s far worse for the country than we thought if she didn’t know her
own campaign was spending $9 million,'” former White House communications director Hope Hicks responds.
“So the whole Russia thing I think seems to have turned around? What do you think, Sarah?” Trump
asks press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“Absolutely,” Sanders replies.
Omarosa told Whoopi Goldberg lying is second nature in the White House.
