White House senior staffer Omarosa Manigault will be celebrating her wedding Saturday morning in President Donald Trump’s trademark hotel in Washington, D.C. just steps away from the White House, according to people familiar with the matter.
There will be a wedding, brunch and reception at the Old Post Office Pavilion on Pennsylvania Ave. that was recently converted to the Trump Hotel.
Manigault, who rose to fame through Trump’s "Apprentice" series, is an assistant to the president and director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. She did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Jennifer Korn, a special assistant to the President in the same office, tweeted photos of Manigault and her White House colleagues including counselor Kellyanne Conway, deputy press secretaries Lindsay Walters and Sarah Sanders feting Manigault before the wedding.
"Wonderful bridal party … " Korn tweeted. "Happy wedding day tomorrow."
Manigault was originally planning marry her fiance, Pastor John Allen Newman, at a Church in Jacksonville, Florida on March 25. But she reportedly changed plans after receiving death threats.
Trump, and many senior White House staff, will not be attending the wedding, according to the official schedule. They are at Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, for the weekend following an official visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
