President Trump's former aide lent her two cents to the discussion over the President's infamous "s--thole countries" remark by tweeting directly to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
"President @MBuhari FYI he said it. #Naija," she wrote on Monday.

Omarosa's pointed contribution came hours after Trump was asked directly at a press conference with Buhari about the veracity of reports from January that claimed he referred to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as coming from "s--thole countries" in a closed-door Oval Office meeting with lawmakers.
"Why are we having all these people from s--thole countries come here?" he griped Jan. 12, according to the Washington Post.

Buhari was in town Monday to meet with the President and tiptoed around a question involving the controversial remark, opting not to put Trump on blast.
"Well, I'm very careful about what the press says about people other than myself," he said. "I'm not sure about the validity or whether that allegation against the President was true or not so the best thing for me is to keep quiet."

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders delivered Trump's thanks to Bossert in a statement on Tuesday, noting that "The President is grateful for Tom's commitment to the safety and security of our great country." Bossert's departure comes one day after former U.N. ambassador John Bolton joined the Trump administration as their new national security adviser. (Oliver Contreras/Sipa USA/TNS)

Trump, for his part, quickly chimed in to tell reporters that he and Buhari did not discuss the comment — but Trump didn't deny saying it.
"You do have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in," he said. "We didn't discuss it, because the president knows me, and he knows where I'm coming from and I appreciate that. We did not discuss it."

This isn't the first time Omarosa, the former Office of Public Liaison's director of communications, has spilled intimate details regarding the Trump administration.
The former "Apprentice" standout spent much of her time as a contestant on the CBS reality series "Celebrity Big Brother" offering her fellow houseguests various scoops and tidbits of information, including the claim that Vice President Mike Pence depends on Jesus to tell him what to say.
The White House announced in December Omarosa had resigned from her position, but sources have said that she was ousted by Chief of Staff John Kelly and escorted out of the White House.
The reality star later said on "Big Brother" that leaving the White House was like being "freed off a plantation" — and hinted that she wouldn't be keeping her lips sealed for much longer.
"I'm thinking of writing a tell-all sometime. He's going to come after me with everything he has. Like, I'm going up against a kazillionaire … but I have to tell my truth. I'm tired of being muted… I've been defending somebody for so long. Now I'm like, 'Yo, you are a special kind of f--ked up,'" she mused.
